Israel’s nationality matters greatly or three-fourths of the Bible wouldn’t be dedicated strictly to them.
When you begin to talk about who the true nation of Israel is, many so-called Christians say it doesn’t matter because Christ unites all nations who follow him (Gal 3:28-29); but somehow, God no longer cares about nationality.
In this message, I give six reasons why biblical nationality matters. I also read a former subscriber’s letter about the subject.
6 Reasons the identity of true Israel matters
- Israel is the only nation formed by God.
- Three-fourths of the Holy Bible talks about Israel.
- The New Testament says God isn’t done with Israel.
- God didn’t replace Israel with his Church.
- Israel plays a major role in the end-times (Revelation).
- There will be many nations in the earthly kingdom of God.
The letter from a reader
An email from a former subscriber:
Hi Neal, I just wanted to send a brief thank you message for your website. The information is very useful and you have a good way of making it accessible and easy to understand.
My only comment, if I may, is that some readers may be confused about the black Israelite concept. I don’t know enough about this subject to speak on it. But some readers may get confused by this and then skip over the rest of the content because of it (they may already have in mind what a Jew looks like, etc). Just something to consider and if it helps shift the reader more to the heavenly, rather than our earthly identification, then I’m glad to have shared.
Overall, the message you have, especially preaching on the kingdom and sin, is sound. I salute you for this effort and wish you well and that God blesses you through your ministry.
My response to the reader:
This ministry is led by the Holy Spirit of the Most High God; if he sees fit to reveal the true origins of so-called black people, who are you to suggest I don’t follow his command and publish that information?
When the enemy sends people like yourself to persuade me to tone down or change our message in any way, I know we’re on the right track. It encourages me to continue.
You’re free to disagree and to have an opinion but when you reach out like this, this is when you get into trouble. Did you really think I’d consider your suggestion?
Most Gentile “Christians” like yourself reject the truth of who true Israel is because you lack the Spirit of God who guides us into all truth.
Nationality matters greatly or three-fourths of the Bible wouldn’t have talked about the nation of Israel.
The Church didn’t replace Israel and the Galatians (3:28) passage doesn’t mean that our sex, social status, or nationalities are dissolved because we’re united in Christ.
There will be multiple nations in the kingdom of God when it’s established on Earth. So this is an earthly thing as much as it’s a heavenly thing.
You’re ignorant and I doubt you even read our proof articles on the subject. You said yourself that you don’t know much about it. Then why email your concern/disapproval on something you haven’t even researched?
To be clear: I don’t care if we lose readers. This ministry will retain those God sent to hear the truth and it’ll repel those who don’t want the truth. I’m only concerned with doing the will of God and not how many readers we have.
You’ve implied that our ethnicity shouldn’t even be discussed regardless of the fact that we play a major part in the kingdom of God. Such comments are ignorant and disrespectful. You need to repent and keep comments like this to yourself.
