The LORD bless thee

 Who are the children of Israel?

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

Who are the children of Israel?

According to my friends the Karaite Jewsanyone who

  1. Is circumcised (males only),
  2. Accepts the God of Israel (YHWH) as their own God, and
  3. Accepts the People of Israel as their own people

is a full-fledged Jew or Israelite.

According to my friends at the Biblical Foundation Academychildren of Israel are

  1. Children of the stranger that join themselves to the LORD
  2. Who love the name of the Lord
  3. To be his servants
  4. Who keep his Sabbath
  5. Take hold of His covenant

  

Part of GOD’s posse

The above descriptions of children of Israel is according to biblical principles. Scripture does not tell us that in order to be considered part of GOD’s posse one needs to be of Jewish heritage, be signed up with a church, synagogue or denomination.

GOD says; Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him … Mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.

Jesus, who is of Jewish heritage, says where two or three are gathered in his name, there am I in the midst of them.

And whosoever will let him take the water of life freely.

  1. Very True Mimi, there is only one way to The Father and that is through Jesus Christ, all other ways are a dead end it is not who we know in this world or even who we call friends and family it’s who we believe in as our Lord and Saviour.

    We are the Children of the Promise (see below) and we who are known by God as His will all be saved.

    Romans 2:28-29 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

    Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the Promise.

    Yes we are Spiritual Jews in Christ Jesus … How good is that!

    The Scriptures also tell us (see below) that there will be no True understanding unless we read God’s inspired words both New and Old Testament, which are His thoughts not mans, we are to do this by the empowering of The Holy Spirit and with God’s wisdom, both of which we are to ask for in Christ Jesus (James1:5-6) and He will also show us Translation error, it is Jesus who leads us into all Truth and we don’t have to fear error when we Trust Him to do so.

    1 Corinthians 2:9-16 The things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with Spiritual.

    1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is Truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

    1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is True, and we are in Him that is True, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God, and eternal life.

    Psalm 32:8I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go. I will guide you with Mine eye.

      Hi Anne, thank you, you’re awesome. There’s a story about the Samaritan in the pipeline where Jesus sums it up nicely I think. You sure know your scripture. It always amuses me that many people don’t seem to realise that Jesus heritage is Jewish. It is wonderful to meet people such as yourself who do not only read their bible but apply it also.
      God bless – Mimi

      • Thank you Mimi for your kind words, there was a time I was very confused about Scripture meaning God’s Truth but then He opened my eyes I Posted about it just recently, it is called my battle with confusion.

        Mimi do you have anything you don’t understand about the Scriptures and what has impacted you the most in your journey with Jesus?

        And what State do you live in?

        Blessings – Anne

    Hi Anne, I read your battle with confusion and it is a wonderful post accompanied by great scripture.

    I live in the state which is called ‘Beautiful one day and perfect the next,’ just like you and the man with the dinosaurs. I wouldn’t be surprised if we live in the same town.

    I’ll get back to you on your other questions because my lift arrived for me to go and see the dentist.
