For our citizenship or politeuma is in Heaven, Part 4.
Wednesday, February 14, 2001
Greatest prejudice has always been against the Jew, sponsored by Satan who desires to eliminate the Jews so God cannot fulfill the unconditional covenants.
REV 2:9 “I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.”
GAL 6:16 “And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.”
The New Covenant defines the restoration of the client nation Israel at the Second Advent and its millennial modus operandi, JER 31:31-34.
Anti-Semitism is the greatest of all racial and cultural and religious prejudices.
Our politeuma comes from heaven where we are all given equal privilege and equal opportunity.
To the Greeks, the Polis, which meant to be a Roman citizen of ancient Greece, was not just a place to live, there was a tremendous pride in it.
The people viewed their Polis as a partnership with other Roman people to obtain the highest good for all society.
The individual citizen developed his abilities, his talents, and his skills, not for his own sake, but for the benefit of the community and for the sake of all.
Politeuma mutuality, interdependence, and being proud of your citizenship as the issue.
Politeuma a group of individuals making up a body of people constituting a people united by a common interest.
1CO 11:11 “However, in the Lord, neither is woman independent of man, nor is man independent of woman.”
1CO 12:12 “For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.”
This corresponds with the “Jerusalem which is above,” GAL 4:26.
