Bulletin: Have You Heard the Straight of the New God’s People of Jews and Gentiles?

 New King, the Lord Jesus Christ, of a New People of Jews and Gentiles.  (New King of the New Israel # 2)

 

“’Behold, the days are coming,’ says the LORD, that I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness, a King shall reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.  In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell safely.”  (Jeremiah 23:5,6)

It took a lot more Prophesy and Bible, alias a gradual revelations of God and truth through the ages of the Bible, and especially the later explanations of this Prophet Messiah/King, the Lord Jesus Christ during His ministry on earth, to explain:  (1) that this kingdom of the King would be set up in the hearts and minds of men during the life of Christ and grow from generation to generation as believers were written in the book of life of heaven as members of the church, the body of Christ; and (2) the fulfillment of the reign of this King and the Kingdom would fully take place only at the Second Coming of Christ as the new Jerusalem, new heavens, and new earth took the place of the old.

  1. First God’s people of Israel and Judah would be brought back to the Palestine of the first century for the birth of Christ; and during that period of history they would no longer be talking about the rescue from Egyptian bondage, but rather be talking about the rescue from Captivity in Babylon, Persia, and Assyria, even Egypt where Jeremiah and some of the people went. (Jeremiah 23:7,8)

  2. After verses and a chapter on how bad all the official prophets and priests were of that day, then comes the guarantee again of an edification at a later {after the 70 years} in the land of Palestine and up to the time of Christ.

     (1).  Recall that with the destruction of Jerusalem and Judah, the really bad ones of God’s own people were killed; and “for their own good” (Jeremiah 24:5), like “good figs”, God sent captive into the land of the Chaldeans.

    (2).  Edification and Comfort.  These good figs will be returned to the land, for edification and building up right up until 70 A.D.

“For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land.  I will build them up {edification} and not pull them down, and I will plant them {comfort} and not pluck them up.”  (Jeremiah 24:6)

     (3).  A New Heart of regeneration to know God, more comfort.

“Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD; and they be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.”

Of course, this started with the teachings and death of Christ on the cross and then the Coming of the Holy Spirit with the new heart capability on the first day of Pentecost after the Ascension.
