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.

The mission of Christ to recover the “lost sheep” of Israel is topic today, with more on whether atheists are increased by reading the Bible. A “Yahoo! Answers” writer using the ID “Ibrahim” (Level 4 with 2,922 points, a member since June 12, 2012) posted the following:


Those who believe in the Christ as their God, please come?

Hi my dear Christians ..
Here is a quotation from the Holy Bible, Matthew , verses 22-27,
It says,
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.
27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table .

——————-

Jesus Christ ( peace be upon him ) says that he was sent unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel ..

Now the question is,

Has anyone of you heard that verse before?

If you do, please explain to me,

If Jesus the Christ is God, why he was sent only unto the lost sheep ( lost people ) of the Jews ?

And sorry, my dear Christians, now I got another question,

What can you understand when you read these 2 verses,
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.

————

NOTE, these questions are expected to be answered by the Christians ..

If you aren’t a Christian & want to participate, please respect the Christianity & the Christians ..

Additional Details

My brother,

Our dear Christians are grown up in Christians’ environments ..

By God, many of them are poor ..

I don’t abuse them when I say that they are poor ..
I feel sorry toward them ..

Ranchmom1,
Ok, let us examine your answer in details ..

You wrote, (( 1. Jesus is the Messiah promised to the Jewish people. The Jewish people were to be a light to the Gentiles He (God) says (to Israel): “I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.” Isaiah 49:6. ))

If Jews were the light of the God almighty, why did Jesus say, in the Gospel of Matthew 5:20,

(( “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” ))

Jesus Christ is telling you that if you want to enter the paradise, you must be better than the Jews ..


THE BATTLE AXE: On Producing Atheists (03/16/2013)—Both believers and non-believers who lack the Holy Spirit are impotent, un-teachable and useless as instruments of GOD for ministry, revelation, and worship. As lovers of argument, debate and friction, no atheist may effectively demonstrate the sacred dimensions of human reality, or carry out divine operations that make visible the divine presence. Grounded in “self-righteousness” and insisting upon a “religious liberty” whereby they may continue as childish regarding their own beliefs, many attack the practices and values of those around them. Such persons do not edify (i.e., unselfishly build up the understanding of others), provide no spiritual comfort, and proclaim no “good news” from GOD. No man imprisoned by self-centeredness, self-importance and self-justification can ever know the freedom believers achieve through the correct reading of Scripture, and a right knowledge of the living GOD.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. (Colossians 3: 9-15, King James Version)

Dear Ibrahim, it requires more than the few verses from Scripture that I might share with you here to correctly detail the action of GOD among mankind through Jesus. Even so, please consider the following:

1. A promised Messiah and anointed one (Christ) was to reign as a divine agent over Israel, and by extension, all mankind. An aspect of his mission would be to re-unify the scattered peoples. The tribes are spoken of as “lost”, yet, the areas where they were to be found, and their physical location was very well known.

2. Jesus appeared to reject the woman who pleaded for her daughter’s exorcism because he was portraying, and challenging, the historical attitude and response of the Jews to other Hebrews and Gentiles. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, from the lineage of David (and therefore entitled to be called “a Jew”, one from Judea). However, he was raised in Galilee, and was hated as if from one of the ten tribes that made up the Northern Kingdom.

3. The Unified Kingdom of David was lost through his grandson, Rehoboam. Ten tribes rejected rule by the house of David, and became the Northern Kingdom. Under Jeroboam son of Nebat, Samaria (Israel) rejected the Temple at Jerusalem, and chose idol worship and the Golden Calf from Egypt. Conquests by Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Medes, Greeks, and Romans did not fully destroy the covenant people. They were divided, and in spiritual confusion; yet, GOD continued to observe the divine promises, and sacred purposes established among the Jews.

4. The Scriptures use the phrase “the Jews” referring broadly to the Temple community consisting of beggars, elders, factions (e.g., Herodians (royalists), Pharisees, Sadducees), guards (security personnel), lawyers, Levites, livestock merchants, money changers (currency exchangers), petitioners, prophets, priests, repairmen (such as carpenters, roofers, stone cutters), scribes, and teachers. The Sanhedrin Council of seventy, and the various cliques and mobs that specifically opposed Jesus and his followers who continued as the early church, also are repeatedly called “the Jews.”

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, Israel was never to be regarded as a chosen people on the basis of their own righteousness. They were to be a device to demonstrate and display the steadfastness and righteousness of GOD to all mankind (called “the Gentiles”). The Scriptures are not to be regarded as a record of Jewish achievements, or their failures, so much as a chronicle of divine interventions, eternal and ongoing judgment, and divine wrath against sin. Because a balanced and full revelation of GOD is being documented, there are detailed presentations regarding atonement, compassion, forgiveness, healing, incarnation, love, mercy, and sanctification as well.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
