Error of Denominations Part 7
To have the Jew as God’s Chosen, today, what would have to still be true that is not now in existence? First, Christ would not have come into the world. The reason God EVER chose the Jewish nation was to bring Christ into the world be a PURE ancestry. Every “pure blood” has to have a history of 10 generations. Check the laws of pedigree and you will find this still exist. When Christ came into the world He had 40 generations by which to claim “purity”. The reason for the ancestry given in Matthew and Luke is to PROVE the generations of purity substantiated. This is the reason Ezra had the Jew to divorce all the women from Babylon when Jerusalem was rebuilt; the seed line had to be pure!! Conclusion: if the Jew is still God’s chosen, Christ has not come in the flesh.
To still be the “chosen” of God, the sacrifices of the Old Testament MUST still be offered. What established the nation, qualified the law-giver, also established the priesthood! “For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change of the law.” Hebrews 7:12 If the Jew is still the “chosen”, the priesthood of Christ is in jeopardy. He could not be priest as qualified by the Law of Moses. He did not generate from Levi, so under the Law which established the nation of Israel Christ COULD not be a priest AT ALL!! If Christ is NOT our high priest and He cannot enter the throne room of the Ancient of Days in our behalf, how could sin ever be forgiven of sin?? “For it not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore, when He cometh into the world, He saith, ‘Sacrifice and offering Thou wouldest not, but a body hast Thou prepared Me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin Thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of Me) to do Thy will, O God.” Hebrews 10:4-7 The blood of bulls and goats, as you remember, was the offering for sin of the Old Testament Law, NOT THE LAW OF CHRIST!!!
To still be the “chosen” of God, we would STILL have to “keep the Sabbath day holy”. Moses, when he was decreeing the Ten Commandments wrote:”The Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb (see Deut. 4:12-13). The Lord made NOT (EMPHASIS MINE) THIS COVENANT WITH OUR FATHERS, BUT WITH US, EVEN US, WHO ARE ALL OF US HERE ALIVE THIS DAY.” Deuteronomy 5:2-3 It would take sheer dishonesty to think any of us were alive THAT DAY Moses “handed down” that covenant. Since that covenant was with “all of who are alive this day”, none of us in the 21st century keep the Sabbath, holy!! “Let no man therefore judge (recognize, know, describe) you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.” Colossians 2:16-17 The Seventh Day Adventist denomination thinks themselves over 2,000 years old!!
If the Jew is still the “chosen”, God will have to explain all the confusion He caused in the 1st century AD. Why, the apostles, miracles, signs and wonders, raisings from the dead, walking on water, healing the blind, and raising of the dead?? Why all the confusion? If God did not intend to bring salvation through His Son, establish the TRUE ancestry of Christ, and preach the gospel to ALL the world-why all the confusion?? What would be the purpose? If the same Law, same people, same priesthood, same sacrifices, same days of worship, and same day of remembrance still exist; WHAT WAS ALL THE FUSS ABOUT?? If it be true as some say that God did not fulfill ALL His promises to Israel (therefore she still exist) how can we be sure about any of the promises He has made to US?? I know, God lied and the Jew still is His chosen—right!!
