Hello T.O and Doves
This is a question I have dealt with my studies in the past.
We all know the scripture which states " many are called ,
few are chosen. "
Jesus said to the deciples " I' have chosen you, you
have Not chosen me ." ( the deciples were Jews)
We know also that Jesus came FIRST unto the Jew , and then
In Jeremiah 12:9-17
God said: Mine [heritage] is unto ME as a " speckled bird "
the birds round about are against her:
10: Many Pastors have destroyed MY vineyard, they have
trodden MY portion under foot, they have made MY [pleasent
portion] a desolate wilderness. note:
here God is including the gentile and the Jew. The
Pleasent portion is Israel. ( Pastors; denote the
believers of the gospel of Christ) Speckled = of
many nations and peoples and tongues , not just Israel. We
are Adopted into the heritage of God through the completed
work of Jesus. Also Abraham had many children counted
amoung the gentiles. It is possible that many of us are
children of Abraham, but FEW are of the line of David. Let
us not forget in our studies, at ONE point in
the history of the Jews, God cursed the Royal line.
The interesting thing in this is that Satan thought at
that point , AH HAH' I have him now ! But God in His
greatness, delivered the Promised Saviour " Jesus "
through the UNCURSED LINE in Mary. Joseph was of the
Royal line [ read Luke 3:21 -38 ] for the line of Joseph .
We know the FATHER ( God) was the FATHER of Jesus,
and NOT Joseph, and even though the line of Joseph
was cursed , the line of Mary was not. God used Mary
fulfilling [Gen 3:15.]
With this in mind, we need not
be concerned if we are of the line of David, because we
being Adopted can never be dis-owned.
The Law even of Today.....allows for an adopted child that
they can never be left without an inheritance; where as a
Natural born child CAN be disowned.
