Did God come down from heaven for the Jews?
Republished From http://www.godtoday.org
One web site visitor questioned: Whether it is true that God came down from heaven for the Jews .......?

 

 

God came down from heaven to this world as a human being to save His selected people, the Jews, not the Gentiles (see Matthew 15:24, 10:5-6, Acts 10:36). 

 

God wants the descendants of Jacob to go to His Own Resting Place through the ladder (see John 1:51, 1:1-3) as being stated in Genesis 28:10-15.  Paul wrote about the urge and importance for man to perform their best in order to go to God's Resting Place (Hebrews 4:1-11).  God’s Resting Place is on top of the Ladder.  Those successful ones must climb up the ladder, no other way. 

 

In John 14:6, Jesus said that "no one will COME to the Father except through me."  Jesus did not say: “go to the Father”.  In fact, the resurrected Jesus is the same God before He came down to the world and was born as a man (Revelation 1:17-18).  He is also the Father (Isaiah 9:6, John 10:30, 14:7-11, 3:13, Revelation 1:7-8, 17-18, 22:12) and the Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17)ONE GOD (who can act either singly or plurally), the same God of Abraham, God of Isaac and the God of Jacob (Exodus 3:14-15).

 

In the past two thousand years, most Jews believe Jesus (Yeshua) was merely the son of a carpenter - Joseph.  He could be a good man, a prophet but not God. 

 

While most of the Jews want to obey God and to worship Him only, they do not want to hear about Jesus.  Instead, many of them believe Jesus, being a man - blasphemied God by saying He was the Son of God; and He also said : “Before Abraham was, I AM.” (John 8:58 NKJV)

 

In the minds of most Jews, their Messiah should be physically strong and capable to lead them to defeat their enemies (human beings) in this world as King David did. 

 

Because most of the Jews ignore to read the New Testaments, most of the them still have not found the New and Everlasting Covenant from their God yet (prophesied in Jeremiah 31:31-34, Isaiah 55:3 and confirmed in Luke 22:20).  That is why most of them are still waiting for the arrival of their Messiah.   Meantime, they still believe that the Promised Land God gives to them is today's country of Israel (old days Canaan, as God gave to them in the Old Covenant) - in this world, not in heaven (the New Jerusalem or God’s Resting Place). 

 

In fact, God had already told them to go to Babylon (Jeremiah 24) long before HE came down from heaven (John 6:38) and was born in this world as a man in flesh and blood.  Babylon is this world where we all live today (Revelation 18).  God did tell them the ‘Real Promised Land’ they should look for (prophesied in Isaiah 65:17-18, 66:22, John 14:2-4, 2 Peter 3:10-13, Revelation 21).

 

Through the New Covenant, Jesus disclosed that the real enemy of His disciples, His selected people and His believers - is Satan, the Devil or the Evil Spirit, not human beings in this world (John 17:15-21, John 15:19, John 13:34).

 

Only in the last generation (Isaiah 10:20-22, Isaiah 17:7, Matthew 24:32-34), ALL the remnant descendants of Jacob will find out that Jesus (Yeshua) is indeed their Messiah and their God (Elohim) who came down from heaven and was born as a human being (John 6:38) to save them (Zechariah 12:10-14, Revelation 1:7)

 

Only when the Jews refused to accept the New Covenant (The Words of God or Jesus), the Resurrected Jesus appointed Paul to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles (Acts 13:46-47). 

 

However, as soon as the Gentile numbers are met, ALL the Jews will be saved (Romans 11:25-27, Isaiah 10:20-22).  This is to fulfill what God said that it would be His responsibility to send His People to their own land…… not a single one will be missing (Ezekiel 39:28, John 6:37-40). 

 

The Ultimate Promised Land is not in this world.   This world will be cremated completely (2 Peter 3:10-13).  The Ultimate Promised Land  is the New Heaven and New Earth, God’s Resting Place, the Father’s House, the New Jerusalem (Genesis 28:10-15, Isaiah 65:17-18, Isaiah 66:22, John 14:2-4, 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21).

 

Only in the last generation that the fig trees will sprout (Matthew 24:32-34).  Only in the last generation that ALL the Jews will SEEK their God and their Messiah, ASK about the WAY and then to find out and to acknowledge that Jesus (Yeshua) indeed is their Messiah who came down from heaven (Jeremiah 29:13-14, Proverb 8:17,35, Isaiah 65:1, Matthew 7:7, Luke 11:9-10 and John 6:38), suffered and died for them (Isaiah 53), created the WAY (John:14:6) for them to go to the Father’s House (John 14:2-4), on top of Jacob’s ladder (Genesis 28:10-15) as He, Himself did about 1975 years ago (John 3:13).

 

And, He will only come again when the Jews admit that “Bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord. (Matthew 23:37-39).

 

 

Who is the real Jew?

 

For the real Jew is not merely Jewish outwardly: true circumcision is not only external and physical.  On the contrary, the real Jew is one inwardly; and true circumcision is of the heart, spiritual not literal; so that his praise comes not from other people but from God.”  (Romans 2:28-29 The Complete Jewish Bible)
 
 
 
Another translation of Romans 2:28-29:
 
"For you are not a true Jew just because you were born of Jewish parents or because you have gone through the Jewish Ceremony of circumcision.  No, a true Jew is one whose heart is right with God.  And true circumcision is not a cutting of the body but a change of heart produced by God's Spirit." (NLT)
 
 

  

 

Everyone who seeks, finds  (Jeremiah 29:13-14, Proverbs 8:17-35, Isaiah 17:7, Matthew 7:8 )
