One New Man (Full Article)
I believe it is paramount that we begin to be awakened to a mystery in Rom. 11 that we must begin to understand about the Church and spiritual Israel:
Rom. 11:24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
Rom. 11:25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
We must first get acquainted with the fact that there is a mystery and then begin to understand it because we will begin walking it out in our generation.
Ignorance in this area of our walk as the mystery becomes reality can be disastrous and the Scriptures spell it out very plainly, pride. I’m going to give you a flyover at treetop level regarding Israel and the Church for that is all the grace I have here at the moment. All I can say is that there is a stirring in the Spirit that it is nearing the time when a new ingathering of the remnant of Jews to the things of God will take place. I am only one of the least of many who are awakening the Church to say, “ it is almost time”. Many have already been preparing for years to help and just because our timing may have been off, God’s is not.
I believe the Holy Spirit is awakening a response of faith in us to understand this mystery. Prayer is paramount here because it is the Holy Spirit that gives our spirit understanding of what the natural mind cannot easily receive to change our paradigm in place over the years:
Job 32:7 “I thought age should speak, And increased years should teach wisdom.
Job 32:8 “But it is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding.
Do not allow the seed of this mystery be stolen by the enemy or worse yet be aborted because of pride.
I believe the Holy Spirit prompted me to put a basic introduction for those who do not consider or comprehend in the Scriptures of the “one new man” (Eph. 2: 11-16). It should make many aware of the change in the season that is going to unfold. The church must begin to be aware of the fact that we do not support the root, but we are the wild branch that was grafted into the natural cultivated olive tree, Israel . The Gentiles are the wild branches that were grafted in while the natural branches (Israel) were broken off because of unbelief. When the fullness of the Gentiles is complete, the natural branches will become jealous and be grafted back into the holy root of Jesse (Rom. 15:12). This is the mystery in a nutshell.
Our Hebrew or Jewish Roots
Our Hebrew roots are important and the enemy knows this and has sought to sow seeds of deception and discord into the Church while we were sleeping. When the enemy cannot stop the move of God in a restoration of truth, he seeks to push it forward to excess. And since the Church is zealous for the things of God, most times we fall for it. It is time to wise up.
I have experienced several restorations of truth over my 40 some odd years in ministry and I know that there is always debris, muddiness and some imbalance or excesses at the beginning of its formation of the stream. This has been no different. I believe the emphisis is of the Holy Spirit and should be part of each Stream of God to pursue. I believe that the reason the waters in general become unreliable is because it becomes a separate movement. Balancing safety and accountability is the answer. When a movement is largely outside of the Church's there is often little safety and accountability of what comes forth, especially in its application which needs to be shepherded.
“Israel’s Vanguard” is a word I received from the Lord regarding Israel and the Church and is a sobering one, yet a very exciting one because “summer is near” to ripen the Great Harvest to come:
This is the hour when the God of Israel will show the world that they are my people and anyone who seeks to harm them touches the Apple of My eye. Watch my people in this sacred moment for I and I alone will protect their going out and coming in.
When the wind blows across the earth My Spirit will reap havoc over it, but pass over my people Israel, so that the world will know they are “My Beloved”. Watch and see that My people will be vindicated as the other nations seek to slander it.
Make no mistake, My hand will be strongly upon Israel in this final hour, even though the nations hate her and seek to drive them from the earth. My name is Jehovah God, the God who will protect her above all else.
The “blood moons” are a sign to the other nations that time is short. And the vengeance of the God of Israel is ready to send destroying Angels in a visitation not yet seen on the earth.
You as watchmen must be keenly aware of what I’m about to do, so understand the meaning of “Consider the Hour” and do not hide what I show you for it will be for your welfare and protection to blow the trumpet in this strategic hour.
Know that “summer is near” (Matt. 24:32, Jer. 8:20), so the God of Israel is about to reap a harvest of souls in the path of destruction. I have prepared My Church to be the *vanguard of Israel as it exits the nations, but beware if you do not take up your stance along side her in the hour ahead.
Vanguard : the soldiers, ships, etc., that are at the front of a fighting force that is moving forward.
(The foremost division or the front part of an army; advance guard)
Watch and pray for the hour of temptation will be strong to turn one’s backs on My people. Settle it in your hearts that those who do I will proceed to turn My back on them in times of trouble. This is the essence of Israel and the Church: Stand together or lose “the blessing”.
att. 10:42 “And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.”
