“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade– kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.” -1 Peter 1:3-5
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.’” Because the One True God of Israel is unfailing love, civilization built with Jesus will stand forever!
What did you inherit when you were born? A nurturing family? Or an abusive one? A broken family? Or one that met your needs? A family steeped in nobility? Or one stricken with poverty? Were you born into peace and prosperity? Or into war, pestilence and famine? Perhaps you were born into loving arms, but surrounded by a society of thieves or bigots.
No matter what kind of family you were born into, you inherited an amazingly complex and dynamic web of histories and relationships of the many personages dating back millennia to the beginnings of man—all of which led to you.
“May we shout for joy at your victory and raise a banner in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your petitions.” -Psalm 20:5 Come ALIVE Church!
Messianic Jews and grafted in Christians identify themselves not just as a religious faith, but as a people living Kingdom lives for God’s Son Yeshua, Christ Jesus, the long-awaited Messiah. Archeological and historical record in the Scriptures undeniably prove a unique heritage of religious faith, God-given laws, language, and theocratic government deeply rooted in Jerusalem, Israel for more than 3.5 millennia.
Message from the Colson Center: “Christians are called to be agents of restoration (2 Corinthians 5), but in an age so divided and hostile to truth, this calling can seem futile. Thankfully, God has proven Himself faithful to His people in every era of history.” Every Christian can live like one!
“Admission to the kingdom of God is never by the proud prerogative of race, status, nation, class, or gender. It is certainly not by heredity! All who enter the kingdom of God must be born into it by the Spirit. This spiritual birth is an act of God.” –James W. Tharp, Christian Renewal, Winter 2014
“So, trade your despair about politics and your disappointment with life as usual for the joy of belonging to an emerging nation that is unstoppable and eternal. As Joe Stowell explains in Jesus Nation, when you realize that you belong to the greatest nation ever, your new sense of identity will revolutionize your life and your world.”
“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
Holy Nation People are not unequally yoked with unbelievers. Unbelievers = Secular: denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis. Contrasted with sacred. It is written: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” -Romans 12:2
Warning: Do not try to get into Jesus’ Church some other way than going directly through Christ Jesus himself… read Matthew 22:11-13
“A highway shall be there, and a road, and it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool, shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it; it shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk there, and the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” -Isaiah 35:8-10
“Come to me [Jesus], all who are weary and heavy–laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and You shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My load is light.”-Matthew 11:28-30
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Then you will live in the land I gave your ancestors; you will be my people, and I will be your God. -Ezekiel 36:26-28
It is written: “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” -2 Timothy 1:7
The Words of Life you need for your soul are found in the Holy Bible, and relationship to Creator God is done through prayer in Jesus name! How wonderful is our Lord that He calls us by name and that He calls us His children. “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” -Mark 10:15
