The Palestinian Covenant: The mystery and true message behind the Palestinian Covenant.

Thursday, March 13, 2008

ROM 9:4b they are Israelites, to whom is the adoption as sons and the glory [the Shekinah glory], and the unconditional covenants,

That leads us to the second unconditional and unfulfilled covenant = The Palestinian Covenant.

The Abrahamic covenant defines the race for client nation Israel when Abraham became a Jew at age 99; circumcision being was the sign, GEN 12:1-3; 13:15-16; 15:18; 22:15-18; 26:3-4; EXO 6:2-8.

The Palestinian covenant defines the land for client nation Israel, GEN 15:18; NUM 34:1-12; DEU 30:1-9; JOS 1:3-4.
PSA 68:20 He that is our God is the God of deliverance; and unto GOD the Lord belong the issues from death.

PSA 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones.

ISA 57:1 The righteous man perishes, and no man takes it to heart; And devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from evil,

The place that God called them to live in was Canaan, the promise land; for you, the Church-age believer, the place that God has called you to live in is the PPOG (which is far greater than Canaan).

1CO 16:13 Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
EPH 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might.
2TI 2:1 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

They are about to pass from the proven leadership of Moses into the unproven leadership of Joshua. They are standing at the entrance to the land that was promised to them by God in GEN 12:7; 13:15; 17:7-8.

At the time, this land was possessed by Israel’s enemies who have shown they will resist any attempt by Israel to enter in the land.
We all have to learn to face the giants that are trying to stop us from going into the promise land, Canaan or the PPOG.

1TI 6:10 For you see the love of money keeps on being a root of all sorts of evil through which [love for money] certain ones by intensively desiring it [money] have gone astray from the doctrine and pierced themselves with many types of pain.

For the love of money Achan brought defeat on Israel’s army and death to himself and to his family.
For the love of money Balaam sinned against doctrine and tried to curse the living God.
For the love of money Delilah betrayed Samson and ultimately slaughtered thousands.

For the love of money Ananias and Sapphira became the first hypocrites in the church, and God executed them as a testimony against their misuse of money and deceit.
For the love of money - Judas betrayed and sold out Jesus.

2TI 2:4 No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.

LUK 8:14 “And the {seed} which fell among the thorns, these are the ones who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with worries and riches and pleasures of {this} life, and bring no fruit to maturity.”

1CO 7:23 You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men.
2TI 4:10 for Demas, having loved this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica; Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.
2PE 2:22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.”

Is the land of Palestine still their possession? (Faith says yes; sight says no).

Did the Mosaic covenant which was a conditional covenant set aside the unconditional Abrahamic covenant?
The Mosaic covenant is a conditional covenant based upon the Jews fulfilling certain laws and receiving the consequences of their positive or negative decisions.

GAL 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.
HEB 8:12 “For I will be merciful to their iniquities, And I will remember their sins no more.”

Could Israel hope to enter into permanent possession of their land in the face of such opposition?

He is speaking of their sin and punishment as being certain; yet, at the same time, shows how they may turn to Him and live, even while He was pouring out His indignation upon them because of their transgressions.

The unconditional covenants mean that the covenant or the promises are provided and are there - however, they are not there in the cosmic system.

a. An enemy of the cross, PHI 3:18.
b. An enemy of God, JAM 4:4.
c. A hater of God, JOH 15:23.

d. Anti-Christ (against Christ), 1JO 2:18,22; 4:3; 2Jo 7.
e. A carnal believer,
ROM 8:7; 1CO 3:3.
f. Double-minded, JAM 4:8.

In spite of the promises of God and the unconditional or unilateral covenants, you still must be in the place where the covenant or the promises reside.

Under the Palestinian covenant all of the middle East and part of Africa and Europe is promised to the Jews, but not all the land in the world.

The rejection of Israel and the desolation of the promised inheritance were not to be the end of God’s dealings with them.

HOS 5:15 I will go away and return to My place Until they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me, in the latter days, you will return to the Lord your God and listen to His voice.

God loves to reveal and accomplish something more than merely preserving the people from apostasy by the threat of punishment. He desires to secure a more faithful attachment and continued obedience to His doctrines by awakening the conscience of man to His unconditional love.
