For my Evangelical Friends:
I wonder how many Evangelicals understand this scripture?
"Galatians 3:15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. 16 Now to Abraham and his seed (singular) were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, (plural) as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ."
Once you grasp that, then God's promise to Abraham has context:
"Gen 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed (singular) all these countries; and in thy seed (singular) shall all the nations of the earth be blessed"
Only by understanding what is above can the following words make sense:
"Gal 3:26-29 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
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."
The Judaizers call this, "replacement theology" as if Christians are claiming they have "replaced" God's chosen people, the Jews. But no Jew is replaced, or rejected except those who reject their own heritage and cling instead to the false and anti-Christ teachings of the Talmud, which is more anti-Christ than the Koran.
The Globalists, with their new religion, have harped on the idea that the modern Pagan State of Israel, is the Israel of the Bible and that secularist, atheist, pagan, and Talmudic Jews, that is, the religious and non-religious Jews are "spiritual first cousins," and that we as Americans and Christians have a "religious" responsibility to "protect Israel." And that is a LIE. We have a MORAL responsibility to treat all good people well, and our nation has FAILED this moral imperative miserably by our blind support of the Modern Pagan State of Israel, and by our creation of Al Qaeda and ISIS, supporting and funding the Jihadist movement that is decimating the CHRISTIAN and Muslim populations of the Middle East. We are a genocidal nation, with a great many of our Christian people caught in the FALSE religions of Ecumenicism, and Judaized Evangelicalism.
