The importance of Jesus to the salvation of all mankind is topic, today, along with more on how an exorcism is used to further challenge, fulfill and transform the Jews as the “lost sheep” of the Good Shepherd. A “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “Muthusamy” (Level 1 with zero points, a member since March 12, 2013) posted the following:

If Jesus is a Jew then why should I be a Christian?

From now call me Jewthusamy.

THE BATTLE AXE: The Children, not the Dogs (03/17/2013)—As Messiah, Jesus uses Israel to demonstrate the work of resurrection in the completion of Creation, judgment, and divine revelation. Israel, dead in sins, is “raised from the dead,” washed in atoning blood, then established in new covenant and eternal life with GOD. The “history” of Israel contained in the Scriptures is not always one of favor and special privilege that others should envy, or feel condemned by. Those who left Egypt with Moses included a “mixed multitude” (i.e., non-Hebrews and those not of the 12 tribes of Jacob) who wandered for some forty years in the wilderness. At no time were they “lost”, for they were being led by GOD through a pillar of cloud and fire. The very human responses these made to the workings of GOD among us, resulted in only two men from the more than one-half million souls that comprised the armies of Israel actually surviving to enter the Promised Land (Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephuneh). Even the Prophet Moses and Aaron the High Priest were denied through the righteous judgment of GOD.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. (Acts 3: 18-24, King James Version)

Dear Jewthusamy:

For mature Christian believers—and those everywhere who are above cultural arrogance, ethnic bias, and racial hatred—the fact that Jesus was born among the Jews is a further display of divine righteousness, not human wisdom, cleverness and perfection. For those playing the games of judgment against GOD, the evidence for divine righteousness by the priesthood, promises, prophesies and salvation granted to Adam are not enough. The destruction brought against those of Noah’s day is not convincing; and the extended history of divine presence, proclamations, and judgments through covenant with the Jews are only an empty gesture.

The revelation of GOD to all the created beings and living creatures of the universe require that Jesus must be a Jew. At question is the integrity of the divine word. The Word of GOD was published as a judgment against the serpent, and became a cornerstone of hope for Adam and Eve. The priestly inheritance that was then established as a seed continued bearing fruit in Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, and David (and through them to all Israel, and to all mankind); and must yield its harvest in such sacred plantings as eternal life, repentance, redemption, rest, salvation and sanctification. Saying this another way: Jesus must be a Jew to further assist those in spiritual confusion and darkness to see that GOD is not without power against sin, and GOD is not a liar.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, the more correct question, for many of us, is not why should we be a Christian? Rather, what is the complete and correct understanding one must have of divine truth? The doctrines, teachings and opinions of men easily establish a comfort zone for our ignorance and pride. That a man would dare meddle in the things of GOD does not result from his containing the increase of divine substance that is provided through the ministry of Jesus Christ. Christian believers are to be focused upon GOD (not Judaism, Islam, atheism, communism, etc.) through Christ and the operation of the imparted indwelling Spirit (called the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Holy Spirit). Sinners may choose to have a new name through Jesus; however, only after being “born again” are sinners given new reputations (names), and become known as “believers”, “saints” and “children of GOD.”) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
