Who are the Israelites to Whom Pertaineth the Adoption?For thou [Israelites] art a holy people unto the LORD your God; and the LORD hath chosen you to be a people to Him, a special treasure out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth, Deuteronomy 14:2 Not a single hair of the head of a single Israelite was harmed when the Romans killed all the jews and destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem in 72 AD. Why?
"who are Israelites; whose is the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service, and the promises; of whom are the fathers, and from whom is Christ as concerning the flesh, who is over all, God, blessed forever. Amen", Romans 9:4-5
"Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel," he said, "Because He has not forgotten His people but has effected redemption for them", Luke 1:68
But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, having come into being out of a woman, having come under the Torah, that He might redeem the ones under the Torah, that we might receive the adoption of sons. Galatians 4:4-5
And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?1 Peter 4:18 He said in reply, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Matthew 15:24
"These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matthew 10:5-9For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, Hebrews 8:8
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said about him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!" John 1:47Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1John 2:15
I ask then, Did God reject his people? May it never be! For I also am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin, Romans 11:1
"James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting." James 1:1For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Romans 9:3 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Romans 9:4 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen. Romans 9:5 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Rev 3:9
WHO DID Jesus EXCLUDE?
House of Judah, jews, Edomites who are descendants of Esau whom God hated, Arabs who are descendants of Abraham through his slave Hagar, Ammonites and Moabites who are prohibited from the congregation of the LORD forever, Egyptians, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Amorites, Cushites, Ashkenazis, Girgashites, Hivites, the third of the world's population who follow the Koran and Buddha, the 1/6th of the world who are pagans in Africa, the 1/6th of the world who are goddess worshipers in South America, Shintos of Japan, the 1/6th of the world who are Hindus and Muslims in India, and mamzers.
Jesus came only for the portion of the descendants of Abraham through Jacob who were of the ten northern tribes who are "as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude" [Gen 32:12], which today is one billion Israelites.
HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND HOUSE OF JUDAH
THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL The Tribes of Reuben, Gad, Aser, Naphtali, Manasses, Simeon, Levi, Issachar, Zebulon, and Joseph
THE HOUSE OF JUDAH The Tribes of Judah and Benjamin
And when Rehoboam was come to Jerusalem, he assembled all the house of Judah, with the tribe of Benjamin, a hundred and fourscore thousand chosen men, which were warriors, to fight against the house of Israel, to bring the kingdom again to Rehoboam the son of Solomon. 1Ki 12:21
JEWS DEMAND Jesus BE CRUCIFIEDMat 27:24 So when Pilate saw that he prevailed nothing, but rather that a tumult was arising, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this righteous man; see ye to it. Mat 27:25 And all the people answered and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
Joh 18:12Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, Joh 18:36 Jesus said in answer, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom was of this world, my disciples would have made a good fight to keep me out of the hands of the Jews: but my kingdom is not here. Joh 19:38 Later Joseph from the city of Arimathea asked Pilate to let him remove Jesus' body. (Joseph was a disciple of Jesus but secretly because he was afraid of the Jews). Pilate gave him permission to remove Jesus' body. So Joseph removed it.
Jesus IDENTIFIES JEWS AS MAMZERSI know that you are Abraham's seed, but you seek to kill Me, because My Word is not given room in you. Joh 8:37 You do the works of your ancestor. They said to Him, We be not born of miscegenation we have one ancestry, God of Abraham. John 8:41 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? John 8:48
And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart. Jeremiah 7:31
Jesus CONDEMNS THE JEWS FOR IMPOSING THEIR "TRADITIONS"He answered them, "Why do you break the commandment of God because of your traditions? For example, God said, 'Honor your father and your mother' and 'Whoever curses father or mother must be put to death.' Mat 15:3-4
Jesus WAS AN ISRAELITE, NOT A "JEW"
Mary is of the House of Levi, so by no stretch of imagination could she be called a jewess . Levi was given for the true priesthood from the days of Aaron right on down to the present time; the ministry was called the ministry of Yahweh forever Let us turn back to the hour of the birth of Yahshua. This was in the days of Herod the King of Judea, and there was a certain priest named Zacharias (his wife was Elisabeth the daughters of Aaron). John the Baptist was born of Elisabeth, and Yahshua came forth from the womb of Mary. Now Elisabeth and Mary were cousins, one family, and one Household. In Luke 1:36 we read (as the angel addresses Mary): And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth hath also conceived a son in her old age. Now this will help us to understand. The priesthood of Aaron was continued in the Levitical priesthood. This proves Mary was of the Household of Levi.
WHITE CHRISTIANS ARE ISRAELITES
There were 2-3 million Israelites with Moses when he led them out of Egypt, so there should be at least 2 billion Israelites in the world today. As there are only 15 million jews today, it's impossible that they could have been the descendants of this many Israelites.
All 12 Tribes also make up the majority of the populations of the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and a significant portion of the population of South Africa. There are more Americans of German descent than there are Germans in Germany, so the most represented Tribe in the US is the Tribe of Judah.
NOT A TITTLE OF THE TORAH
Do we then make void the Torah through faith? By no means: but we establish the Torah, Romans 3:31
But heaven and earth will come to an end before the smallest tittle of the Torah may be dropped out. Luke 16:16-17
Do not think that I am come to destroy the Torah, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fully preach, Matthew 5:17
HOW ISRAELITES PRESERVED THEIR RACE FOR MILLENNIA
Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and
the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the
lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the
Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.
Ezr 9:14 Should we again break thy
commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed
us, so that there
should be no remnant nor escaping?
Ezr 10:18 And among the sons of the priests there were found that had taken foreign [read: nokri] wives: namely, of the sons of Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren; Maaseiah, and Eliezer, and Jarib, and Gedaliah.
Ezr 10:19 And they gave their hands that they would put away their wives; and being guilty, they offered a ram of the flock for their trespass.
Nehemiah 9:1 Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackcloth, and earth upon them.
Nehemiah 9:2 And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all foreigners, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.
Nehemiah 9:3 And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of Jehovah their God a fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped Jehovah their God.
Nehemiah 13:3 Now it came to pass, when they had heard the Torah, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
Deuteronomy 7:1 When Jehovah thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and shall cast out many nations before thee, the Hittite, and the Girgashite, and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;
Deuteronomy 7:2 and when Jehovah thy God shall deliver them up before thee, and thou shalt smite them; then thou shalt utterly destroy them: thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them;
Deuteronomy 7:3 neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
Deuteronomy 20:16 But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee [for] an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:Deuteronomy 20:17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; [namely], the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee:
Jdg 3:5 And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites: Jdg 3:6 And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods. Jdg 3:7 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves. Jdg 3:8 Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia: and the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim eight years.
The New Testament on the Twelve Tribes of Israel
Rev 7:8 Of the tribe of Zebulun were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousandThe Holy Bible refers to "Israel" or "Israelites" 2,322 times, and not one time is this a reference to a "spiritual" Israelite. A careful examination of the context of each Scripture will show this to be a reference to the Genealogy of the descendants of Jacob. It will also show that jews are not Israelites, and Israelites are not jews. The offspring of Israelites who marry jews or "gentiles" [read: non-Israelites] are mamzers who are not to be permitted into the Congregation of the Lord for the next ten generations:
"A mamzer shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD", Deuteronomy 23:2
SCRIPTURAL REFERENCES Moses' prophecy on Israelites:
(Act 7:37) This is the Moses who said to the descendants of Israel, "'GOD WILL RAISE UP A PROPHET FOR YOU, FROM AMONG YOUR BRETHREN, JUST AS HE RAISED ME UP.'Jesus on Israelites: (Mat 10:5) Jesus sent out these twelve after instructing them thus, "Do not go into pagan territory or enter a Samaritan town. (Mat 10:6) Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Mat 15:24) He said in reply, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." (Luk 1:16) Many of the descendants of Israel will he turn to the Lord their God; (Joh 1:47) Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said about him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!" Joh 1:49 "Rabbi," cried Nathanael, "you are the Son of God, you are Israel's King!" (Act 1:6) Once when they were with Him, they asked Him, "Master, is this the time at which you are about to restore the kingdom of Israel?" (Act 2:36) "Therefore let the whole House of Israel know beyond all doubt that God has made Him both LORD and CHRIST--this Jesus whom you crucified."
Israelites become slaves of Cushites:
(Jdg 3:8) Therefore the anger of Yahweh was kindled against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Cushan Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia: and the children of Israel served Cushan Rishathaim eight years.
(Jdg 3:9) When the children of Israel cried to Yahweh, Yahweh raised up a savior to the children of Israel, who saved them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.
(Jdg 3:10) The Spirit of Yahweh came on him, and he judged Israel; and he went out to war, and Yahweh delivered Cushan Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand: and his hand prevailed against Cushan Rishathaim.
(Jdg 3:11) The land had rest forty years. Othniel the son of Kenaz died.
(Jdg 3:12) The children of Israel again did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh: and Yahweh strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh.
(Jdg 3:13) He gathered to him the children of Ammon and Amalek; and he went and struck Israel, and they possessed the city of palm trees.
(Jdg 3:14) The children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.
Israelites in the land of Ham:
(Psa 105:23) Israel also came into Egypt. Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
(Psa 105:24) He increased his people greatly, And made them stronger than their adversaries.
(Psa 105:25) He turned their heart to hate his people, To conspire against his servants.
Israelites at war with Gog:
(Eze 38:16) and you shall come up against my people Israel, as a cloud to cover the land: it shall happen in the latter days, that I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when I shall be sanctified in you, Gog, before their eyes.
(Eze 38:17) Thus says the Lord Yahweh: Are you he of whom I spoke in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in those days for many years that I would bring you against them?
(Eze 38:18) It shall happen in that day, when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, says the Lord Yahweh, that my wrath shall come up into my nostrils.
(Eze 38:19) For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
(Eze 38:20) so that the fish of the sea, and the birds of the sky, and the animals of the field, and all creeping things who creep on the earth, and all the men who are on the surface of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
Israel and Judah have two different kings:(1Ki 22:10) Now the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah were sitting each on his throne, arrayed in their robes, in an open place at the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets were prophesying before them.
Israelites at war with Syrians:
(1Ki 22:30) The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and go into the battle; but put you on your robes. The king of Israel disguised himself, and went into the battle.
(1Ki 22:31) Now the king of Syria had commanded the thirty-two captains of his chariots, saying, Fight neither with small nor great, save only with the king of Israel.
Paul was an Israelite:
(Rom 11:1) I ask then, Did God reject his people? May it never be! For I also am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
Israelites are dispersed:Exo 9:7 And Pharaoh sent and got word that there was no loss of any of the cattle of Israel. But the heart of Pharaoh was hard and he did not let the people go. Lev 23:42 For seven days you will be living in tents; all those who are Israelites by birth are to make tents their living-places: Lev 23:43 So that future generations may keep in mind how I gave the children of Israel tents as their living-places when I took them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. Num 25:14 Now the man of Israel who was put to death with the woman of Midian was Zimri, the son of Salu, a chief of one of the families of the Simeonites. Jos 3:17 And the priests who took up the ark of the agreement of the Lord kept their places, with their feet on dry land in the middle of Jordan, while all Israel went over on dry land, till all the nation had gone over Jordan. Jos 8:24 Then, after the destruction of all the people of Ai in the field and in the waste land where they went after them, and when all the people had been put to death without mercy, all Israel went back to Ai, and put to death all who were in it without mercy. Jos 13:6 All the people of the hill-country from Lebanon to Misrephoth-maim, all the Zidonians; them will I send out from before the children of Israel: only make division of it to Israel for a heritage, as I have given you orders to do. Jdg 20:21 Then the children of Benjamin came out from Gibeah, cutting down twenty-two thousand of the Israelites that day. 1Sa 2:14 This he put into the pot, and everything which came up on the hook the priest took for himself. This they did in Shiloh to all the Israelites who came there. 1Sa 13:20 But all the Israelites had to go to the Philistines to get their ploughs and blades and axes and hooks made sharp; 1Sa 25:1 And death came to Samuel; and all Israel came together, weeping for him, and put his body in its resting-place in his house at Ramah. Then David went down to the waste land of Maon. 1Sa 29:1 Now the Philistines got all their army together at Aphek: and the Israelites put their forces in position by the fountain in Jezreel. 2Sa 4:1 And when Saul's son Ish-bosheth had news that Abner was dead in Hebron, his hands became feeble, and all the Israelites were troubled. 2Ki 3:24 But when they came to the tents of Israel, the Israelites came out and made a violent attack on the Moabites, so that they went in flight before them; and they went forward still attacking them; 1Ch 9:2 Now the first to take up their heritage in their towns were: Israel, the priests, the Levites, and the Nethinim. Joh 1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him and said of him, See, here is a true son of Israel in whom there is nothing false. Rom 9:4 Who are Israelites: who have the place of sons, and the glory, and the agreements with God, and the giving of the law, and the worship, and the hope offered by God: Rom 11:1 I say then, Did God cast off his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2Co 11:22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.
Jesus never, ever stated that He was a jew. Pontias Pilate asked Him if He was King of the jews, and His reply was:
John 18:34 Jesus answered, "Do you say this of your own accord, or did others say it to you about me?"
Does that sound like a "yes" to you? No. When Pilate found out He wasn't even from Judaea, but instead was from Galilee, he had to send Him to King Herod, because Pilate didn't have jurisdiction over Galilee:
Luke 23:7 And when he learned that he belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him over to Herod, who was himself in Jerusalem at that time.
The Samaritan woman knew that He was not a Samaritan, and because His disciples had gone to Jerusalem, she just assumed that He was one of the jews associated with the Temple:
John 4:9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samar'ia?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
If Jesus WAS a jew, He wouldn't have been talking to her, because "Jews have no dealings with Samaritans".
Jesus furthermore stated that He came ONLY for the Israelites, and He instructed his Twelve Disciples to go ONLY to Israelites:
He said in reply, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Matthew 15:24
"These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matthew 10:5-9
The ONLY people who qualify as "lost sheep of the house of Israel" are descendants of Jacob, who are Israelites. Jews are not descendants of Jacob, so Jesus could not possibly be advising His Disciples to preach to jews, but instead told them to steer clear of "Gentiles" [who to an Israelite means jews], and Samaritans.
Israelites are referred to throughout the Holy Bible, from Genesis to 2 Corinthinians:
Gen 32:32 Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the sinew of the hip which is upon the hollow of the thigh, because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh on the sinew of the hip.
2Co 11:22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they descendants of Abraham? So am I.
This last reference is the Apostle Paul telling his audience that he is a Hebrew, an Israelite, and a descendant of Abraham, which NO jew has EVER been, nor could they ever be by the nature of who an Israelite is. When Paul said "I became AS a jew" he was referring to his tutelage under the Pharisee Gamaliel, something he rejected as soon as he discovered how vile the jews were. If he HAD been a jew, what need would there have been to become AS a jew, because he would have already BEEN a jew?:
1Co 9:20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews; to those under the law I became as one under the law--though not being myself under the law--that I might win those under the law.
Jos 13:7 Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance unto the nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh, Jos 13:8 With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received their inheritance, which Moses gave them, beyond Jordan eastward, even as Moses the servant of the LORD gave them; Jos 13:9 From Aroer, that is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that is in the midst of the river, and all the plain of Medeba unto Dibon; Jos 13:10 And all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, unto the border of the children of Ammon; Jos 13:11 And Gilead, and the border of the Geshurites and Maachathites, and all mount Hermon, and all Bashan unto Salcah; Jos 13:12 All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for these did Moses smite, and cast them out. Jos 13:13 Nevertheless the children of Israel expelled not the Geshurites, nor the Maachathites: but the Geshurites and the Maachathites dwell among the Israelites until this day. Jos 13:14 Only unto the tribe of Levi he gave none inheritance; the sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as he said unto them. Jos 13:15 And Moses gave unto the tribe of the children of Reuben inheritance according to their families. Jos 13:16 And their coast was from Aroer, that is on the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that is in the midst of the river, and all the plain by Medeba; Jos 13:17 Heshbon, and all her cities that are in the plain; Dibon, and Bamoth-baal, and Beth-baal-meon, Jos 13:18 And Jahazah, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath, Jos 13:19 And Kirjathaim, and Sibmah, and Zareth-shahar in the mount of the valley, Jos 13:20 And Beth-peor, and Ashdoth-pisgah, and Beth-jeshimoth, Jos 13:21 And all the cities of the plain, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses smote with the princes of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, which were dukes of Sihon, dwelling in the country. Jos 13:22 Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer, did the children of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by them. Jos 13:23 And the border of the children of Reuben was Jordan, and the border thereof. This was the inheritance of the children of Reuben after their families, the cities and the villages thereof. Jos 13:24 And Moses gave inheritance unto the tribe of Gad, even unto the children of Gad according to their families. Jos 13:25 And their coast was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the children of Ammon, unto Aroer that is before Rabbah; Jos 13:26 And from Heshbon unto Ramath-mizpeh, and Betonim; and from Mahanaim unto the border of Debir; Jos 13:27 And in the valley, Beth-aram, and Beth-nimrah, and Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, Jordan and his border, even unto the edge of the sea of Chinnereth on the other side Jordan eastward. Jos 13:28 This is the inheritance of the children of Gad after their families, the cities, and their villages. Jos 13:29 And Moses gave inheritance unto the half tribe of Manasseh: and this was the possession of the half tribe of the children of Manasseh by their families. Jos 13:30 And their coast was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Jair, which are in Bashan, threescore cities: Jos 13:31 And half Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were pertaining unto the children of Machir the son of Manasseh, even to the one half of the children of Machir by their families. Jos 13:32 These are the countries which Moses did distribute for inheritance in the plains of Moab, on the other side Jordan, by Jericho, eastward.
Jos 13:33 But unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave not any inheritance: the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them.Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger [read: nikro] over thee, which is not thy brethren. Deuteronomy 17:15
