Discussion for Luke 9

  • A disciple
    Joseph made himself known to his brethren the second time they saw him. Jesus will make Himself known to His brethren the whole house of Israel and it will cause their everlasting repentance and conversion, when He comes the second time. The saved of the Nations, the Strangers who join themselves to God's people for the Lord's sake, are still OF THE NATIONS, and ISRAEL IS STILL ISRAEL!

    Alex; I don't want you to think I'm picking on you; but rather that I speak to you as a brother who understands maybe better than you think. Learning the Scriptures and feeding on the Word is wonderful, and much to be praised. But it actually does take time and trial to bring forth a vessel fit for the Master's use. Consider what I'm trying to tell you as good advice from the Lord: stay teachable!
  • A disciple
    Wayne, Thank you. That's simply false! "I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid..God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew." Just now He hides His face from them because they have deeply revolted from Him. Christians are GRAFTED INTO the Commonwealth of Israel and are permitted and welcomed because of Jesus' shed blood on the cross. The gifts and calling of God are eternal!
  • Wayne
    There are those, as Alex has stated, that believe christians, and Christianity, have replaced and disposed the Jews as Gods chosen people. That the Promises given to the Jews are no longer in effect. That the Lord has turned his back on Israel. That parts of the book of Revelation will not be fulfilled because the Jews are not now "in the picture", so to speak.
