Who Is A True Israelite?

Any understanding of Israel apart from the Messiah Jesus Christ is flawed. Only by possessing the faith of Abraham and being transformed into a new creation in Christ–that is, becoming one with Christ–can a person be considered a member of Israel. Regardless of racial or ethnic background, no one can rightly claim citizenship in/of Israel […]

“ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, JERUSALEM OUR MOTHER” Conclusion

This will be concluded with Alan Morrison’s closing thoughts. This has been a lengthy essay, one I’ve only shared a portion of. Because I omitted entire sections, I encourage you, if time permits, to read it all. What I personally found of interest was the fact this was originally written in 1998. I can honestly […]

“ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, JERUSALEM OUR MOTHER” (5)

Want to take a moment to thank those who have sent me private feed-back concerning this essay. May God bless you. Part (5) tackles what I believe is a vital issue: that of chosen-ness.

By this we do not mean that its adherents should be treated with disparagement, but we […]

“ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, JERUSALEM OUR MOTHER” (2)

Continuing with our second point concerning what biblically constitutes a “true Jew” 2. A TRUE JEW IS A PERSON WHO HAS BEEN INWARDLY TRANSFORMED BY THE POWER OF GOD –  The great covenant sign of the Old Testament era was circumcision. All male natural descendants of Abraham would be physically circumcised, but only those who […]

“ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, JERUSALEM OUR MOTHER” (1)

I’d like to thank those at Messianic Good News (an excellent ministry) for granting permission to share portions of this message. A Biblical Analysis of Judaism & the Modern State of Israel in Relation to the Church of Jesus Christ   There are certain Bible phrases which easily cause controversy and disagreement. For example, “…and […]
