> Understanding Jesus’ Holy Nation< In contrast to the best governments of this world, the kingdom of God is based on the highest moral standard- unfailing love! The one to act is me. The time to act is now. The place to act is here. The way to act is with love, truth, hope, and joy of Christ Jesus, Yeshua!
It is written: “For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.” – 1 Corinthians 1:25 “Jesus called them (disciples) together and said, ‘You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.'” -Mark10:42-45
“…Then you will know that the LORD makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel.” -Exodus 11:7b
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;” -1 Peter 2:9 “And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.” –Exodus 19:6
The Coming of the Kingdom of God
“Asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come, He [Jesus] replied to them by saying, ‘The kingdom of God does not come with signs to be observed or with visible display. Nor will people say, Look! Here it is!, or See, it is there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you (in your hearts) and among you (surrounding you). -Luke 17:20 Amplified Bible
Please be wiser than a fool- do not reject Christ Jesus, Yeshua because of the poor examples you may see who profess to be “Christian” …some are plainly not Christian while others are a work in progress under grace; they may be battling evil spirits in their minds causing them to be weak in the flesh, and, as a result, fall into temptation in unacceptable behavior. True Christians will humble themselves and ask for forgiveness under such circumstances. Jesus makes clear, even so, to learn from Him and to keep your eyes fixed on Him! Jesus makes people holy through repentance of sin.
Consider carefully what is written:
“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.” -Luke 6:43-45
“Then Peter began to speak: ‘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. You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of the peace through Christ Jesus [Yeshua] who is Lord of all.'” -Acts 10:34-36
“And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it. No lion will be there, nor will any ferocious beast get up on it; they will not be found there. But only the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the Lord will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.” -Isaiah 35:8-10
“For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; it is He who will save us.” -Isaiah 33:22
“One only is the Lawgiver and Judge- [the One] Who has the absolute power of life and death- Who is able to save and destroy.” -James 4:12 Amplified Bible
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” –1 Corinthians 13:4-8
“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.” -Romans 13:8
Jews, Gentiles/Heathens, Christians, Muslims, Infidels, and all others, can become One in Christ Jesus!
What makes Holy Nation different from all other nations? In Exodus 33:14 “The Lord replied [to Moses], ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’” The Judeo-Christian Holy Nation is entered voluntarily through belief and faith in Christ Jesus/Yeshua. It is NOT a political nation, but, rather, a spiritual nation that stands alone on the Holy Word of God. Its foundation and function is love. The very measure of greatness of a persons life in Christ is love. Neither money, wealth of possessions, title, rank, nor the external fashion of clothes empowers a person to give God’s love. Love comes out of a pure heart and clear conscience towards God by Serving others beyond own self interests. Man can add nothing to the Kingdom of Heaven; rather, he must align himself with what is already established and true!
Jesus builds strong and happy families and community!
Jesus: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” -Luke18:16, 17
