Followers of Jesus were called ‘His Way people’ before they were called Christian. Most professing Christians aren’t followers of Christ nor His way people, but traditionalist following denominations of choice. Since Babel and God confusing languages to spread people, ‘God’s way people have been a people of faith with perpetual promises.’ Beginning with faithful Abraham. It’s revealed to His Way people.

(Gal 3:27-29; For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female — for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. (29) And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.”)

It was through ‘Terah’ (Abraham and brother Nahor’s father) that the heir by promise “Descendant ‘Jesus” “Son of God” came to redeem sinners to God the Father and Himself. (See the historical beginning at Gen 11:28-18:16.) Afterward the Lord and two angels visited Abraham, pronounced the birth of Isaac and revealed His intent to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.

(Gen 18:17-19; Then the LORD said, “Should I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? After all, Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all the nations on the earth will pronounce blessings on one another using his name. I have chosen him so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just. Then the LORD will give to Abraham what He promised him.”)

The Lord said to Abraham, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so blatant that I must go down and see if they are as wicked as the outcry suggests. If not, I want to know.” Abraham began interceding for Sodom and particularly his nephew Lot. Read the account at Gen 18:22-32.) (Verse 33; The LORD went on His way when He had finished speaking to Abraham. Then Abraham returned home.”)

The promises to save and give eternal life through Jesus’ faith and by promise was always for ‘Jesus’ Way People.’ Continuing primarily through Abraham’s grandson ‘Jacob’ and his twelve sons, ’Israel.’ Revealed through Paul and others.

(Rom 3:1-4; “Therefore what advantage does the Jew have, or what is the value of circumcision? Actually, there are many advantages. First of all, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What then? If some did not believe, does their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? Absolutely not! Let God be proven true, and every human being shown up as a liar, just as it is written: “so that you will be justified in your words and will prevail when you are judged.”) (Oracles included care of the land, the poor, His calendar and attributes to live by.)

(Rom 3:5-8; “But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? The God who inflicts wrath is not unrighteous, is He? (I am speaking in human terms.) Absolutely not! For otherwise how could God judge the world? For if by my lie the truth of God enhances His glory, why am I still actually being judged as a sinner? And why not say, “Let us do evil so that good may come of it”? — as some who slander us allege that we say. (Their condemnation is deserved!)

NOT FLESHLY RIGHTEOUSNESS BUT BY FAITH

(Rom 3:9-20; “What then? Are we better off? Certainly not, for we have already charged that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin, just as it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one, there is no one who understands, there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, together they have become worthless; there is no one who shows kindness, not even one.” “Their throats are open graves, they deceive with their tongues, the poison of asps is under their lips.” (14) “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and misery are in their paths, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world may be held accountable to God. (20) For no one is declared righteous before Him by the works of the law, for through the law comes the knowledge of sin.) (What God views as sin is defined by His law.)

The Righteousness of God IS Through JESUS’ Faith.

(Rom 3:21-25; But now apart from the law the righteousness of God (which is attested by the law and the prophets) has been disclosed-   namely, the righteousness of God through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Now we can see why salvation must be through Jesus’ gifted faith and promise.) (24) But they are justified freely by His ‘Jesus’’ grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God publicly displayed Him at His death as the mercy seat accessible through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because God in His forbearance had passed over the sins previously committed. (It’s what the Passover kept in Egypt always looked forward to.)

Rom 3:26-31; “This was also to demonstrate His righteousness in the present time, so that He would be just and the Justifier of the one who lives because of Jesus’ faithfulness. (27) Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded! By what principle? Of works? No, but by the principle of faith! For we consider that a person is declared righteous by faith apart from the works of the law. (29) Or is God the God of the Jews only? Is He not the God of the Gentiles too? Yes, of the Gentiles too! Since God is One, He will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. Do we then nullify the law through faith? Absolutely not! Instead we uphold the law.”)

The Lord God Jesus, ‘the Descendent’ began prophesying peace on earth through His chosen, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the prophets and completed them through His apostles.

Jesus’ apostle Paul understanding prophecies referred to Jesus as “the Descendent.” Revelations were given to Abraham, Moses and David prior to Jesus’ apostles and we Believers IN. Keep in mind, “When Jesus returns it’s a new beginning, a new age and all Israel will be saved.” Paul was gifted to understand God’s covenant promises.

Gal 3:15; “Brothers and sisters, I offer an example from everyday life: When a covenant has been ratified, even though it is only a human contract, no one can set it aside or add anything to it. Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his Descendent . Scripture does not say, “and to the descendents” referring to many, but “and to your, Descendent referring to One, who is Christ.

Gen 12:7; “The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants ’Seed’ I will give this land. So Abram built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.” (Read the account of Abraham rescuing Lot.)

Gen 13:14-16; “After Lot had departed, the Lord said to Abram, “Look from the place where you stand to the north, south, east, and west. I will give all the land that you see to you and your descendants ’Seed’ forever. And I will make your descendants like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone is able to count the dust of the earth, then your descendants also can be counted.”

The Israelites through Moses, Joshua, the Judges, “Samuel being the last” and king David, never controlled to all the borders promised Abraham. Its obvious, “saving His Way People revolved around God’s planning through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob’s descendents and particularly David’s Descendent “Jesus.” Jesus’ followers are spiritual Israelites. (Review Galatians 3:29; “And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.””

The promises to Abraham follow through to Jacob’s son Joseph and his two sons, “Ephraim and Manasseh.”

Genesis 48:17-21; “When Joseph saw that his father placed his right hand on Ephraim’s head, it displeased him. So he took his father’s hand to move it from Ephraim’s head to Manasseh’s head. Joseph said to his father, “Not so, my father, for this is the firstborn. Put your right hand on his head.” But his father ’Jacob’ refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He too will become a nation and he too will become great. In spite of this, his younger brother ‘Ephraim’ will be even greater and his descendents will become a multitude of nations.” So he ’Joseph’ blessed them that day, saying, “By you will Israel “Jacob” bless, saying, ‘May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh.’” So he put Ephraim before Manasseh. (21) Then Israel ’Jacob’ said to Joseph, “I am about to die, but God will be with you and will bring you back to the land of your fathers. As one who is above your brothers, I give to you the mountain slope, which I took from the Amorites with my sword and my bow.”)

The Lord God “Jesus” continued this line of prophesying through His prophet Moses.

(Deut 18:15-19; “The Lord your God will raise up for you ’Israelites’ a prophet like me from among you – from your fellow Israelites; you must listen to Him. This accords with what happened at Horeb in the day of the assembly. You “Israelites” asked the Lord your God: “Please do not make us hear the voice of the Lord our God any more or see this great fire any more lest we die.” (17) The Lord then said to me “Moses” “What they have said is good. I will raise up a prophet like you for them from among their fellow Israelites. I will put My words in His mouth and He will speak to them whatever I command. I will personally hold responsible anyone who then pays no attention to the words that prophet speaks in My name.”)

(We know that prophet to be the Lord Jesus who spoke the words of His Father.) Deut 18:20; “But if any prophet ’teacher’ presumes to speak anything in My name that I have not authorized him to speak, or speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die.”

A future deliverance of all Israel to the borders promised Abraham is an absolute.
