ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

Father Abraham
 
Some teachers have taught a replacement theology
Where the church has replaced Israel
But God has never rejected His people
And His promise is not temporal.
 
A God proclaimed covenant is always enduring
 And His promises always prove true.
“I will bless those who bless you, “the Almighty promised
“And curse those who dare to curse you!”
 
 While it may be recorded that Israel blundered
And did not acknowledge her King…
 A period’s predicted… somewhere in the future…
Where His coming will change everything.
 
The root of our faith is planted in Israel…
 Remember we are grafted in.
If we cut down the root then I beg to question
Where and how does our own faith begin?
 
Where does the seed of salvation come from?
Did Jesus not say from The Jew?
It has been channeled through God’s chosen people
 And the birth of the Christ proved it true.
 
The Word tells us that we are the branches…
That we are held up by the root.
Together with Israel we have formed one new man
And may our branches be loaded with fruit.
 
The father of our faith is Father Abraham…
And his seed is the Lord Jesus Christ.
We’ve been adopted…are heirs to the promise
Through the Cross and the Lord’s sacrifice.
 
But we are no longer a Jew OR a Gentile…
We are One in the Savior of souls.
Separated no longer by ethnicity or gender…
For together we make up a whole.

~~AUTHOR'S NOTE~~
This dedication is to my favorite and the most wonderful
Jewish lady on PoetryPoem with lots of Jesus Huggs.



 Your descendants will take
 possession of the cities of their enemies,  
and through your offspring[a] all nations on earth
 will be blessed,[b] because you have obeyed me.”

 

Acts 28:20
For this reason I have asked to see you
 and talk with you. It is because of the
 hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain.”

 
John 4:22
You Samaritans worship
 what you do not know;
we worship what we do know,
 for salvation is from the Jews

 
Galatians 3:16
Now to Abraham and his Seed
 were the promises made.
 He does not say, “And to seeds,”
 as of many, but as of one,
“And to your Seed,”[a] who is Christ.

 
Galatians 3: 27-29
For all of you who were baptized
 into Christ have clothed yourselves
 with Christ.  There is neither
Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free,
 neither male nor female, for you are all one
 in Christ Jesus.  If you belong to Christ,
 then you are Abraham’s seed,
and heirs according to the promise.

 
Ephesians 2:12-15
Remember that at that time you were
separate from Christ, excluded from
 citizenship in Israel and foreigners
 to the covenants of the promise,
 without hope and without God in the world.
  But now in Christ Jesus you who once were
 far away have been brought near
 by the blood of Christ.
 
 For he himself is our peace, who has
 made the two one and has destroyed the barrier,
 the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside
 in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations.
 His purpose was to create in himself
 one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace,
