Thank You Father God for God the Holy Spirit’s illumination, restraint, guidance, grief, quenching, filling, and comfort. Thank You for food clothing and shelter. Thank You for sanity and clarity of mind.
Confession of sins is the removal of sins from our record with God. The blood of Christ does not cover my sin, but rather removes them. The blood of Christ doesn’t cover sins and never did solely from the Biblical data.
Before you dismiss me altogether, ask yourself if the Bible teaches this or not instead of if it is the common teaching in Churches. The blood of Old Testament animal sacrifices certainly did cover over the sins of the people Israel for 1500 years. The blood of Jesus however never covered their sins.
The blood of Jesus doesn’t cover our sins either. The blood of Jesus removes our sins from us. Our sins are forgiven when Gods word says our sins are forgiven.
The blood of Old Testament sacrifices covered the sins of the Israelites from God’s wrath. God has no hostility toward Christians. God had hostility toward Israelites for the time period of Mosaic law.
Israelites from 1500 B.C. to 34 Anno Domini were not recipients of God’s grace gospel and promises to in Christ Saints. These Israelites were not saved in the same sense that you and I are. They were saved by keeping the works of the law of Moses.
The remnant of Israel was not in Christ, they are not in Christ presently, and they will not be in Christ during the millennial reign of Christ in the future Kingdom of God on earth. In Christ placement is not theirs but only ours, or those of us who have believed the grace of God for us. They are the kingdom of heaven, and we are not the kingdom of heaven.
We in Christ are the Kingdom of God. The kingdom of heaven is righteous Israel. The kingdom of God is every in Christ grace believer from the beginning of the body of Christ (34 A.D. to present and until the rapture of the body of Christ (1Thess. 4:16-18) )
The body of Christ is a term with two meanings. One of its meanings is the human resurrected body of Jesus which was nailed to the tree, buried, and literally physically actually rose from the grave and is literally physically actually seated upon the Fathers throne in the 3rd heaven. The other is all of the in Christ Saints human bodies both living and dead which are in Christ (and only in Christ and not the righteous Israel who were not are not and wont be in Christ).
Gods chosen people today is not Israel. Today God’s chosen people are Christians in Christ. Righteous Israel are not Christians in Christ.
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”
“Hebrew Nationalism” is the black version of reformed theology in the following ways: 1. Reformed Theology teaches that all peoples of God, during all periods of human history have always been saved by grace through faith the the gospel of the death burial and resurrection of Christ. and 2. that Gods chosen people have always been righteous Israel and always will be which Christians in Christ are grafted into Israel making one people of God for all time.
Hebrew Nationalism teaches the black Jesus and that the Hebrews are black people and that just as reformed theology teaches Israel is the true church. This denies the distinction which exists in Scripture between Israel and the Church and therefore the kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven are synonymous according to both Hebrew nationalism and reformed theology. Both teach a singular ‘people of God’ and also both teach the preference of God toward Israel rather than the grace believer in Christ body of Christ as the new creation.
This is one of 12 revealed mysteries in Scripture. This mystery is “the mystery of the Christ body Church as a new (in time and quality) creation. New not old. God’s chosen race, God’s royal priesthood, God’s holy nation, and the people for God’s own possession in 1Peter 2:9 are only the New Testament grace believing in Christ body ‘church’.
We didn’t exist before the day of pentecost Acts 2:1. Thats why we are the new creation. The Christ body Church is the new in time and quality creation.
