Chapter 23 of the book Yah Is Savior: The Road to Immortality
All the way through the scriptures you can see the way Yahweh lavishes His love on His special people in the earth, even calling them the “ancient people.” The Hebrew word translated “ancient” is the same word used in many places for “everlasting.” And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient (everlasting) people? Fear ye not, neither be afraid…you are even my witnesses. Isa. 44:7. In other words He is saying, I will use you true House of Israel descendants as a testimony and fulfillment of this scripture by granting you everlasting immortality!
The Spirit of Yahweh is addressing Jacob/Israel from verse one on. Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen. There it is. Jacob/Israel is an appointed people, some of which will be elected by Yahweh to fully reveal Himself to the world. They will be His testimony in the earth, His witnesses that will give evidence and a witness to this whole earth.
This is the very reason that Yahweh took the 12 tribes of Israel on as a wife in the first place. He needed a wife in order to reproduce Himself. The Word, the Seed, bears its own kind, and fully manifested sons of God will be the 100 fold fruit that will come out of the womb of the 12 Tribes of Israel. They will be the full fruit 100 fold offspring of Yahweh. “Can the children of the bridechamber fast as long as the bridegroom is with them.” He spoke that about His disciples. They were the children, the sons, the offspring of the relationship of the Seed and fleshly Israel, Yahweh’s wife.
His plan from time immemorial was that He would fully reproduce Himself through His chosen people—a line from Adam, Seth, on down through Enoch, Noah, Shem, and on down through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel and his 12 sons, and on down through to us.
You mean that He will choose out certain individuals from this line of people to be just like Him and to do great things in the earth? Yes.
But a thought will come up? What about these people over here who are not of the 12 tribes of Israel, who are not of the Nordic, Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Western European, Caucasian lineage of people? It sounds so elitist, so racist. You mean they are all okay in the sight of God just because they are the descendents of Jacob/Israel?
Absolutely not. If they do not repent, they shall all likewise perish. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel. Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham’s children. On the contrary, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” In other words, it is not the natural children who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring. Rom.9:6-8. If the natural descendants of the Hebrew patriarchs do not repent and believe, then they are not the children of God.
Yahweh is fair. Just because a person is of the lineage of Jacob/Israel, that does not guarantee anything. He does take a special interest in these people. He definitely said He did, and if we ignore this fact, we shall have ignored the thoughts of Yahweh’s mind. And we ignore this fact at our own peril. He is fair and kind to all. Anyone who repents and turns their heart to Him, He will in no wise cast away. Yet His fairness must not be construed as His total plan and purpose. He has an everlasting people who He loves with an eternal love.
And Yahweh made promises and a covenant with them in Abraham that He would not only bless him and his descendants, but would also bless the whole world through them. You may read in the first 10 chapters of Genesis how like a mother hen, Yahweh meticulously protects and keeps His chosen people separate from the other nations around them. They are a heavenly race, not of this world. They were strangers and foreigners and looked for a heavenly country, their country. They were different than the others. The whole conflict of the Hebrew people was Satan trying to deceive them into thinking that they were the same as the other nations!
And now in our time the Spirit will fuse with some of the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel. They will become the body of Yahshua in the earth for these last days. When we read about the Messiah’s body, we usually only see Yahshua, the Savior. Yes, He is the Head. But He is the Head of a whole body of sons. “Can the head say to the hand, I have no need of thee?” Who is going to be His arms? Who is going to be His legs? Who is going to be His mouth?” It is a corporate body of many sons. These will have full power, just like their Head Yahshua. They are His body. They will be strong and do exploits in the land. These are they who have answered the high calling.
