This gospel message (the Power of God), is the ability of God to cut the heart with the message of Jesus Christ having risen as Savior, from the dead. This gospel affirmed by this blog is now specifically focused on Jewish people and many Mediterranean and Latino people who have Jewish ancestry and don't know it, per the prophesy in Romans 11 spoken of by Paul, the Apostle of Jesus Christ. However, historically, most races and nations could have DNA of ancient Hebrews or current Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews in pockets of their populations, because of sailing, wars, close proximity, silk road, etc.
Ancient Hebrew (Gedrosian admixture testing, Gedmatch) and post Christ Jewish DNA could be found almost anywhere. And this DNA could be washed out, for some, who are actual descendants of Jacob! So, this blog is not shutting out the possibility that many have descent from Jacob from places like Africa, the Arab middle east, and India, China, Russia, etc as these are old civilizations.
As a Christian, I have a world view concerning the nation of Israel, from a biblical perspective. I first want to say that I view Christian Zionism as not being Christian at all. Israel has a purpose but it is not what the Christian Zionists think.
Israel's existence heralds the end of time.Israel's existence is not for the reestablishment of the old covenant. If Christ is the perfect sacrifice, there is no need for another temple or the reestablishment of the Levitical priesthood.
Israel's existence is a mixed blessing. I believe that while it is God's will that Israel exist to the end of time, it has none of the spiritual status of the Old Covenant. Christ's covenant is in force now. There is no need for another Zion.
My DNA connects me to Israel, and to Jews in many places. That is why I say it is a mixed blessing. Christ basically said in Luke 21:24 that the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. That means for me that the end is near as a few descendants of Jaco…
The fact that God has chosen anyone from the lump that is made up of sinners is pure mercy. If you are elect in Christ, wherever you are, the following is hard to comprehend. A member of the Godhead would become a man and sacrifice his life and safety and suffer untold abuse that we few sinners could be saved.
It is without question beyond our grasp as to the reasons why God would make this sacrifice. We are told that it was to make His mercy known and show His character, and to make known His power towards those who are left in unbelief, who are not destined for salvation. Belief is God's gift, and is not an ordinary faith, but given only to the elect.
So, then, chosen before the foundation of the world is a deep and amazing subject. In Romans 8 we see:
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose.29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might …
