God Hasn't Abandoned His People Has He?
One should bear in mind that God came in the flesh to "His own" people, some of whom received Him (the apostles and disciples) and who then went out …
People today have been convinced that the Lord is not the same yesterday, today, and forever. They have been instructed by those who work for corporations (protestant "churches"), that were birthed out of the Babylonian/Romish religion break away "protestantism", that God has done away with His people Israel (the natural branch - read Romans 11) and has chosen a new people and created a new religion based exclusively on a few selected, yet misunderstood, writings of Paul the apostle and little snippets of scriptures taken out of context from here and there in the Bible. This could not be further from the truth. God promised to keep his covenant to His people Israel and he is not a liar, He must remain faithful because He is the only truly faithful one that exists.
One should bear in mind that God came in the flesh to "His own" people, some of whom received Him (the apostles and disciples) and who then went out by the instruction of the Lord to those who were not "His own", so that they could be grafted into the family of faith in the one and only True and Living God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. Paul's ministry was to the Gentiles and much attention is given to that by gentile believers, but Peter's ministry was to continue to minister to and reach the "circumcision", as was the ministry of many of the apostles.
The Lord came for the "lost sheep of the house of Israel". Non-believing gentiles are not the "lost", they were never part of the family of faith, in the God of Israel, and hence never "lost". Unbelieving gentiles, or the goyim (the nations), are not "lost sheep", they are non-believing gentiles. People, we need to study and learn what scriptures teach. We need to be found approved of God, not because we think we are, but because we are workmen that have applied ourselves to studying God's Holy scriptures, old and new testament.
The new testament is intimately connected to the old, and one cannot truly understand Paul, Jesus or the rest of the new testament until one really understands what God has said throughout the generations to those who would listen and heed.
