Angela Doreen thought for today: The promises of Abraham
I wonder how many times I have heard certain people who in wanting to disregard portion of Scriptures or wanting to separate the Scriptures claim that the promises of Abraham is just for the Jews. But thank God for the scripture below I just love it, because it is the inspired word of God and it speaks and in these words it tells me that in Christ there really is no longer Jew and gentiles because we are now one. You see when we come to Christ we have been fused together become one just like you have a horse on its own it is a horse and a donkey on its own is a donkey but when the horse and the donkey get together and mate they produce an offspring which is call a mule because that off spring is now no longer a horse neither is it a donkey because the two has been fused together to make one so now the byproduct of that fusion has created a new creature that is no longer a donkey or a horse it is quite simply a mule. It is really the same thing when we are in Christ we do not have Jew or Gentile because we have become one so that the promises that were made before time past belongs to me and to anyone else who is in Christ.
Now I know someone is bound to say that is not truth but hey guess what it is written and if it is written then it is so because the words that is written below is the inspired word of God and it tells me that I am no longer an alien, a stranger without I am and you too if you are in Christ have been made one with the Jews and as such you and I we are entitle to a share in the inheritance. Yes we stand to inherit all that have been promise to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David because we are joint heirs, joint inheritors and folks all these people going around saying they are the truth Israel or the true Jew guess listen up if you are in Christ none of that matters because we are one, we have become one new creature where there is neither Jew, or Gentile, just believers, disciples fused into the image of Christ.
Don’t you just love when God words have spoken because the only qualifier for inheriting the promises of old is to be a new creature in Christ.
Recommended reading for today: Ephesian 2:11-14
Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us.
