GOD'S GRACE NULLIFIES FAVORITISM


Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith that it may be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure, steadfast and firm to all the seed, not only to those of the law, but also to those of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all,

In these last days (even more so because we are in the last days), I feel there is still so much misconception and purposeful deception over how God views His people, and who His people really are! It seems this is a huge topic of debate, and it really needn't be. Scripture is clear as to the mind and intent of God.
What IS a huge undertaking, however, is pulling the weeds from hearts and veils from their eyes (which is the Job of the Holy Spirit)!
People who lead the charge of this Jewish holiness movement, do so because of race-ism and economics! They want to keep true salvation at it's core with a Euro-centric Israel. Even the Messianic Jew doctrine at it's core, will still have people worship God through a legal system that is no longer in place (Romans 3:19-21;Romans 4:13-14) , and bow down to an Israel (and Jews) that doesn't exist nor is it scriptural to do so!
It's ALL about the sin of PRIDE and GREED!
Leviticus 19:33-34 
And if a stranger dwells with you in your land, you shall not mistreat, oppress or do violence to him.  (34)  But the stranger that dwells with you shall be just as one born among you, and you will love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Exodus 12:48-49 
And when a stranger shall dwell with you, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.  49  One law shall be to him that is home born, and unto the stranger that dwells among you.
Isaiah 56:3 
Neither let the son of the stranger, that has joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.
Isaiah 56:6-7 
Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;  7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
Romans 2:28-29
For he is not a Jew that is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that outwardly in flesh;  29  but he is a Jew that is one inwardly, and circumcision is of heart, in spirit, not in letter; of whom the praise is not from men, but from God.

THEN, there are those who use a John Hagee doctrine to worship the Jew as if they themselves were the Messiah of the human race, and as if they themselves did not need Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior! REMEMBER: The promise of a Savior (which they still look for) was given to them in our Old Testament because they needed a Savior, not because of their clean, pure hearts and actions!
Matthew 15:7-9 
Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,  8  This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.  9  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

There is NOTHING inherently holy about the Jewish people! They are not genetically predisposed to holiness, which it seems they, Messianic Jews and Evangelical Christians would like you to believe! Matthew 3:7-9

But when he [John the Baptist] saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?  8  Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance9  And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
John 5:38-40 

And you have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.  39  Search the scriptures; for in them you think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.  40  And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
You have to see and understand, if you accept this doctrine of them being inherently holy, then you have to accept everyone else is inherently evil simply based on the fact we are different than. The whole Nationalist movement is based on the European and their descendants are the real Jew, and therefore they are the true holy ones by default!
If this lie were true, the contrary must also be true: anyone not of Euro descent is evil and full of sin, hence the darker you are the more prone you are to sin!
This would undermine the need for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the Universal Savior on a whole and the need for a Savior of the Jewish people in particular. THIS lie is exactly what John Hagee and his disciples purport as gospel!
If this were the case, we could dismiss most of the gospel from the Bible, which were penned by Jews for Jews initially, with the exception of Luke. We would also be able to dismiss the dialogue recorded in scripture between Christ and the Jews of His time whose leaders taught they were holy simply because of who they were. All of this dismissal of scripture, even on a subconscious level, then makes scripture on a whole suspect and cause of much doubt.
God wants all to come to Him equally!
2 Peter 3:9 
The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some men count slowness; but is patient to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
1 Timothy 2:4-5 
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.  5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

And His grace, His unmerited favor than can never be earned by anyone, anywhere, regardless of who you are or your station in life, allows just that! We must dismiss any doctrine or person who promotes any doctrine of separatism! We must say it for what it is: false doctrine and anti Christ!
