The mysteries behind the similarities between Israel and the Church, Part 1.
Wednesday, March 27, 2002
When God blesses the mature believer who has adjusted to the justice of God, there is also blessing for others associated with him, and great historical impact.
Sarai was never circumcised, not just because she was a woman, but because of her association with Abram, a very unique blessing came to Sarah, she became the first Jewish woman in history.
Many people profit from the mature believers adjustment to the justice of God.
Even though Sarai was included and she becomes the mother of the new race, neither Hagar nor Ishmael ever became a new race.
Because Abram and Sarai are a new race, Hagar and Ishmael belong to the old Semitic race, and they are related to Arabs in the Semitic race.
This represented the works of the flesh versus the works of the Spirit, GAL 4:29-30.
Abram is the first Jew, Sarah is the second; both husband and wife are new race at the point of circumcision.
1. Israel was added as the new racial species.
2. The Church is the new spiritual species.
Israel came from the procreation of the first Adam, Abraham and Sarah.
The Church came from the last Adam, TLJC, as He perpetuated the great power experiment of the H.U. into the C.A., His Bride necessitating a new spiritual species for the utilization of all divine power.
