Heirs By Faith
Yahweh’s promise was not given by, or through the law, nor was it strictly to one race of people. Even though Israel considered herself superior because of her nationality, it was never so. “Know ye therefore that they that be of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture forseeing that Yahweh would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel to Abraham saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham,” Galatians. 3:7-9.
Confusion concerning nationality and the purpose of the ages has bankrupted the faith of many. Israel’s attitude toward racism led to her downfall. “Then said Yasha to those Jews which believed on him, if you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed: and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered Him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man. How saith thou, You shall be made free? Yasha said, whoso committed sin is the servant of sin…. I know you are Abraham’s (natural) seed; but you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you…. If you were Abraham’s children (spiritually) you would do the works of Yahweh….You are of your father, the devil, and the lust of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning,” John 8: 31-34,39,42,44.
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of Yahweh, they are the sons of Yahweh.” Romans 8:14.
We create images from word meanings, example: when we read the word “Israel” we think of a nationality of people. The Israel of Yahweh was never accepted by race alone. To be a true Israelite they had to be obedient and exercise faith in Yahweh.
Yasha was the promised seed, and all nationalities became Abraham’s seed through faith in Christ, so there is now no Jew nor Greek. “For you are all the children of Yasha through faith in Christ Yasha. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free. There is neither male nor female: For you are all one in the Anointed Yasha, and if you be Christ’ then are you Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise,” Galatians 3:26-29.
