God’s Grace, Mercy and Love, chapter 2

March 14, 2,020. God’s 12th Month, Adar 18, year 5,789

To: To “God’s in Resident Churches” people called to be ‘atOne’ with Him.

Family of Jacob “Israelites” are physical and spiritual heirs with

Abraham. Abraham’s believing Faith made God’s law a part

of his inner being. Physical resurrections and deliverance to former

borders promised. The world will know “Israel is God’s chosen.”

Babylon and Assyria represents the nations Satan inspires to

use and trample on God’s people.

(Isaiah 14:1-5; “The Lord will certainly have compassion on Jacob; He will again choose Israel as His special people and restore them to their land. Resident foreigners will join them and unite with the family of Jacob. Nations will take them and bring them back to their own place. Then the family of Jacob will make foreigners their servants as they settle in the Lord’s land. They will make their captors captives and rule over the ones who oppressed them. When the Lord gives you relief from your suffering and anxiety, and from the hard labor which you were made to perform, you will taunt the king of Babylon with these words: “Look how the oppressor has met his end! Hostility has ceased. The Lord has broken the club of the wicked, the scepter of rulers. It furiously struck down nations”)

(Isaiah 14:6-6; “It ‘the club/scepter/oppressor/Babylon/Satan’ of the preceding line in verse 7, furiously struck down nations with unceasing blows.” It ‘Babylon’ angrily ruled over nations, oppressing them without restraint.

(Isa 14:7-8; The whole earth rests and is quiet; they break into song. The evergreens also rejoice over your ’Babylon’s’ demise, as do the cedars of Lebanon, singing, ‘Since you fell asleep, no woodsman comes up to chop us down!’”

(Isa 14:9-11; Sheol (a subterranean word, meaning home of the dead) below is stirred up about you, ‘Satan’ ready to meet you when you arrive.”)

(Sheol is sometimes translated “hell” in the New Testament.)

It “the ruling Scepter” rouses the spirits of the dead for you, ‘all the former leaders of the earth,’ it makes all the former kings of the nations rise from their thrones. All of them respond to you, saying: ‘You too have become weak like us! You have become just like us! Your splendor has been brought down to Sheol, as well as the sound of your stringed instruments. You lie on a bed of maggots, with a blanket of worms over you.”)

Remember: (Jesus said to His apostles, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Luke 10:18.) And Jesus had Isaiah prophecy about Satan and his followers demise.)

(Isa 14:12-21; “Look how you have fallen from the sky, O shining one, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground, O conqueror of the nations! You said to yourself, “I will climb up to the sky. Above the stars of El. I will set up my throne. I will rule on the mountain of assembly on the remote slopes of Zaphon. I will climb up to the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High!” (15) But you were brought down to Sheol, to the remote slopes of the pit. Those who see you stare at you, they look at you carefully, thinking: “Is this the man who shook the earth, the one who made kingdoms tremble? (17) Is this the one who made the world like a desert, who ruined its cities, and refused to free his prisoners so they could return home?” As for all the kings of the nations, all of them lie down in splendor, each in his own tomb. But you have been thrown out of your grave like a shoot that is thrown away. You lie among the slain, among those who have been slashed by the sword, among those headed for the stones of the pit, as if you were a mangled corpse. You will not be buried with them, because you destroyed your land and killed your people. The offspring of the wicked will never be mentioned again. Prepare to execute his sons for the sins their ancestors have committed. They must not rise up and take possession of the earth, or fill the surface of the world with cities.”)

Persecutors of God’s people will be swept away. From olden times,

Babylon/Satan influenced certain people groups to hate God’s

people, but God has already planned their demise.

(Isa 14:22-27; “I will rise up against them,” says the Lord who commands armies. “I will blot out all remembrance of Babylon and destroy all her people, including the offspring she produces,” says the Lord. “I will turn her into a place that is overrun with wild animals and covered with pools of stagnant water. I will get rid of her, just as one sweeps away dirt with a broom,” says the Lord who commands armies. The Lord who commands armies makes this solemn vow: “Be sure of this: Just as I have intended, so it will be; just as I have planned, it will happen. (25) I will break Assyria in My land, I will trample them underfoot on My hills. Their yoke will be removed from My people, the burden will be lifted from their shoulders. (26) This is the plan I have devised for the whole earth; My hand is ready to strike all the nations.” Indeed the Lord who commands armies has a plan, and who can possibly frustrate it? His hand is ready to strike, and who can possibly stop it?”)

By promised love, “Israel’s next deliverance, ‘greater than one from Egypt.”

(Isaiah 46:3-4; “Listen to Me, O family of Jacob, all you who are left from the family of Israel, you who have been carried from birth, you who have been supported from the time you left the womb. Even when you are old, I will take care of you, even when you have gray hair, I will carry you. I made you and I will support you; I will carry you and rescue you.”

(Isa 46:5-7; “To whom can you compare and liken Me? Tell Me whom you think I resemble, so we can be compared! Those who empty out gold from a purse and weigh out silver on the scale hire a metal smith, who makes it into a god. They then bow down and worship it. They put it on their shoulder and carry it; they put it in its place and it just stands there; it does not move from its place. Even when someone cries out to it, it does not reply; it does not deliver him from his distress.”)

But the world and its denominations prefer worshiping the imaginary, attempting to make God fit their particular view as rationalized from their fleshly minds.

Remember if the God of Noah, Abraham and Jesus’ apostles is described accurately by Paul at Colossians 1:15-20; “Jesus chose Jacob ’Israel’ for His purpose and has the prerogative to continue choosing. (People rationalize “a fair God would design a method by which if one followed they’d be saved.”)

Jesus inspired Jeremiah to write; “The ’false’ prophets prophesy lies. Priests exercise power by their own authority. And My people love to have it this way. But they will not be able to help you when the time of judgment comes!” Jer 5:31)

God’s promise to Jacob’s descendents.

(Isa 46:8; “Remember this, so you can be brave! Think about it, you rebels! Remember what I accomplished in antiquity!) (Think about the miracles done through Moses before your deliverance from Egypt. Think of Jesus’ miracles “making aged wine from water, recreating fish and bread to  feed thousands and His miracles of resurrecting to physical life through His apostles.)

(Isa 45:5-13’ Truly I am God, I have no peer; I am God, and there is none like Me, who announces the end from the beginning and reveals beforehand what has not yet occurred, who says, ‘My plan will be realized, I will accomplish what I desire,’ who summons an eagle from the east, from a distant land, one who carries out My plan. Yes, I have decreed, yes, I will bring it to pass; I have formulated a plan, yes, I will carry it out. Listen to Me, you stubborn people, you who distance yourself from doing what is right. I am bringing My deliverance near, it is not far away; I am bringing My salvation near, it does not wait. I will save Zion; I will adorn Israel with My splendor.”)

Jesus’ apostle Paul was privileged to know and share God

the Father and God the Son’s grace, mercy, love and promises.

(1Cor 1:3-9; “Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! I always thank my God for you because of the grace of God that was given to you in Christ Jesus. For you ‘followers of Jesus’ were made rich in every way in Him, in all your speech and in every kind of knowledge – just as the testimony about Christ has been confirmed among you – so that you do not lack any spiritual gift as you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”)

(Waiting on revelations isn’t the way of those who think methodology.)

Abraham’s justification was by believing faith, no method.

(Romans 4:1-5; What can we say that Abraham, our ancestor according to the flesh, has discovered regarding this matter? For if Abraham was declared righteous by the works of the law, he has something to boast about — but not before God. For what does the scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” What has our ancestor according to the flesh discovered regarding this matter? For if Abraham was declared righteous by the works of the law, he has something to boast about — but not before God. Now to the one who works, his pay is not credited due to grace but due to obligation. (5) But to the one who does not work, but believes in the One who declares the ungodly righteous, his faith is credited as righteousness.”

Rom 4:6-9; So even David himself speaks regarding the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the one against whom the Lord will never count sin.” Is this blessedness then for the circumcision or also for the un-circumcision? For we say, “faith was credited to Abraham as righteousness.”

(Rom 4:10-12; How then was it credited to him? Was he circumcised at the time, or not? No, he was not circumcised but uncircumcised! And he received the sign of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised, so that he would become the father of all those who believe but have never been circumcised, that they too could have righteousness credited to them.)

(Abraham is the faith father of the circumcises and uncircumcised.)

(Rom 4:12; And he is also the father of the circumcised, who are not only circumcised, but who also walk in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham possessed when he was still uncircumcised.)

People called to believe IN Jesus’ faith, mimic His life

and obey His commands have eternal life.
