 The "apple of his eye"

 Re: The "apple of his eye"

Then Disciple what exactly is the bride of Christ as Paul exxpunds in Ephesians. Ephesians 2 Paul describes God building a new temple. A new man consisting of both Jew and Gentile. The church, the body, is the bride of Christ. Not the land of Israel.

The New Covenant supercedes the Old Covenant. Hebrews and other books of the the New Testament establish this. We are part of the Jersualen above that is free. She is our mother. We are looking at a spiritual Jersulem not a literal Jersulem.

The apple of God's eye is the bride of Christ. Those saints who are joined in relationship to Jesus. That bride that consist if both Jew and Gentile.

Disciple the church is not God's Plan B because the Jews rejected Jesus as their Messiah. But God's plan has always been to redeem a people from every nation who fear him and do what is right. God does not show favoritism.

My thoughts.

Ephesians 2:11-22 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

This leaves the old testament Israel still depending on the earthly promises of God for those that are not "One new man", which is both Jew and Gentile one in Christ, one body, one Spirit by the birthing in both, "the incorruptible Seed", of the Father, which is the living Word of God Himself, being "Christ in you the hope of Glory". John 1: 1-4.

1 Peter 1:22-25 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

This, "one new man", is both Jew and Gentile, "born again" making both one new man in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior, Brother and God Himself in the one new man, which is now the Temple of God, holding the Incorruptible Seed of the Father, in both, and making them one new man, both son's of God, by the Son Himself making us fellow heirs with Christ to the New Body of Christ, His Church, leaving the old testament separated Jews, to the promises still left to come to all Israel, not the Body of Christ, which is the New Covenant Body of Christ, His Church, called Christians first in Antioch.

"Of two, one new man", "In Christ by the Christ in you".
No favoritism, just the old and the new, which are still working to accomplish God's perfect Plan for all the ages, which helps understand Revelations much better and how to separate God's perfect plan for all the ages to come.

In Christ: Phillip

 Re: Tbe Redemotive Work of Christ

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Acts 10:34-35
I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.

Rom. 4:29-30
Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too. Yes, of Gentiles, too.

Gal. 3:28
There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Servant there are not two plans of God. One for Israel and one for the church. Since eternity there has always been one plan of God. That plan is the cross of Christ. That plan has been to redeem a people of God. A people consisting of both Jew and Gentile. A people who are united by faith in Jesus Christ. A people who are believing in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

We are not Zionist but believers in Jesus Christ. The redemptive activity of God is for the whole world and not for Israel only. The Old Testament land promises to Israel were superceded by the spiritual reality of the Kingdom of Christ in the New Testament. Those Old Testament land promises were declared null and void by the work if Christ on the cross and the bringing in of the New Covenant.

God will bring a remnant out of Israel to faith in Jesus. Rom. 9-11 reach this. But there will be no restoration of land. God is restoring souls. Not real estate.

The focus of our walk is the person and finished work of Jesus on the cross. This is our message to the nations.
