“I receive Your Deity but not Your Humanity!”
Most of the Church refuses to accept a Jewish Messiah!

 

Greetings Dear Saints,

It has been a while since my last newsletter. These newsletters go out to ten countries and I am always grateful whenever someone is blessed by them. While I sent these newsletters out to 10 countries, there are over 100 hundred countries who visit the website Jeremiah111.org

There will be mounting pressure on both Israel and America from every side.

Most believers have at least some understanding that Israel and the Church have a mirror type of mutual prophetic callings. While the enemies of God surround Israel and speak their death threats, the Church also faces the daunting task of preparing to go through the most difficult of times as well. Yet the Word states, “When the enemy comes in like a flood then the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” Only when evil comes to fruition does the Lord answer with His fire!

Many would say Israel is so very far away and has no relevance to me the Christian or to the Church. Just recently my book titled, “We Need More of Him” has come out on Amazon and now is also available in E-form for your kindle. In the book the Lord gave me different perspective on why we are to love the Jewish people and accept Him Jesus, as a Jew. Below is an excerpt from the book regarding this issue.

Once heard the Spirit say, “Our perception is defined by our prejudices”

 As Christians, we continue to study and learn and as each doctrine is presented to us by the Spirit of God, it comes as a new thing. Before we had experiential knowledge of Salvation or the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, we may not have believed in such things.

Indeed, the things of God are often foolish to those who have not experienced them. Likewise to the other things of God, before we had the scales removed from our intellectual eyes we neither believed nor acted upon the principals of other teachings that seemed foreign to us. Until we allowed the Holy Spirit to teach us the revelation of a specific doctrine, we simply did not have understanding.

I once heard the Holy Spirit say, “If you are teachable, you can have it all.”

The primary issue, the Church has removed herself from the original tree and now finds herself to be a dying entity. Just look to the overall Church, her numbers are dwindling, knowledge of the Bible is near non-existent even within her leadership. The morality of those who refer to themselves as Christians are in general, no higher than that of the secular.

Christian marriages are dissolving at the same rate as those who claim no religious aspirations. And yet, there is a God hunger space with us that demands to be filled. Many are flocking to home churches. These home churches are where many of God Saints are being trained and equipped for service in these end times.

The Church of today has lost the power of her early beginnings. While there may be pockets of these supernatural events occurring, they are not the norm. When we place things in proper order, Jesus is the root, the Jews are the tree and Christianity is the branch which has been engrafted.

Now we the Church have attempted to attach ourselves directly to the root (Jesus) and avoiding the (Jewish) tree. There are many Christians and even some Messianic believers who proclaim Jesus only. Who could possibly argue with this statement? While this may initially sound true and correct, the believing Church has for this reason forfeited its power because of bypassing the tree.

How can a branch gather nourishment without being attached? This avoidance of the tree and attaching to the root translates to the acceptance of Jesus as God but not as man, and yet He is both God and Man and must be accepted as both!

Do you not see the irony in this line of thought?
One day I heard the Spirit speak to me saying,

“We have accepted Him (Jesus) but not who He is.” While this sounds contradictory, let us proceed. This is akin to saying,
I receive the gift (salvation) you Jesus bring to me but I do not receive you in your entirety,
I only receive the one who brought the gift!

Proverbs 18:16a A man’s gift makes room for him, This scripture can be applied to a man’s personal spiritual gifting making room for him. When the Spirit bestows a gift of healing or the prophetic onto a believer, that believer will be more readily accepted and his gifting will bless many. Effectively the gift will be welcomed and the one who operates in that gift will be desired all the more.

This passage speaks volumes of how Jesus, while He is God also desires to fellowship with man and this explains the reasoning for assuming the identity of man. When we visit friends for dinner, it is customary for the guests to bring flowers, a candle, or possibly a bottle of wine. It is a thank you to our host and an expression of our love that they would invite us into their home and share God’s provision.

God’s plan from before man was created, that Jesus would become flesh, so that man could approach God! If God had remained as Spirit only, neither He nor man could ever have had fellowship in the true context of Father and son relationship. In order to fulfill the passage Emanuel meaning God with us, God had to assume the nature of Man.

The Church is in effect saying, “I receive Your Deity but not Your Humanity!”

Do you not see the absolute necessity of this connecting bond? We think of the Church as being spiritual. We view the Jewish people as secular and most are. We accept the spiritual side of Jesus because He is the Son of God yet we do not accept that He is also fully man, a Jewish man with Jewish roots. The believing Church is missing this part of the equation; thereby we short circuit the power when the two are not joined.

When two or more entities come together, their power is exponential. Where two or more are gathered, there is He also in their midst. This One New Man, Jew and Gentile lead us to the intended goal of God, unity of His two sons. Ephesians 4:13

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

Verse 13, the number 13 signifies “A more excellent way”.

Till we all come, both Jew and Gentile come “unto a perfect man”, this is the One New Man and God’s most excellent way.

Unity is the residence of both the Father and the Lord Jesus. They are one and their intention is for the Jew and Gentile to be one with them.

Again, we arrive at a new place, while the doctrine is not new in any way, it may very possibly be new to us. Regardless that we can go and read these scriptures in the Bible, it simply escapes our understanding. We do not comprehend and therefore, it may seem wrong or we believe it to be of no relevance in today’s Church.

How sad it is to hear believing Christians say, they do not believe that the Jewish people and the Land of Israel have any modern day significance in God’s end time plan. They have somehow arrived at the conclusion that perhaps hundreds of promises of God directed to the Jews are now nil and void. They view the Jewish people to be beyond redemption. Still there are others who recognize the Lord has not changed His mind with regard to the Jews but do not fully understand our spiritual connection with them.

God only has one people, not two!

Ephesians 2:11-19
V11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcised by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

V12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

V13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

V14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

V15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances;
for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

V16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

V17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

V18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

V19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

Fellow citizens, Jewish and Gentile believers will worship the Messiah Yeshua, the Lord Jesus together. If we are fellow citizens, then it is obvious we will be living together in the New Jerusalem. For God has reconciled His two sons in to one perfected man that we may serve and rule with Him forever.

Blessings to you and your house,
