Christ in his discourse to the disciples about the transition of Ages said to them “wherever the carcass is there the Eagles will be gathered”.
The dead carcass is Israel of old having been fulfilled expired condemned and put out of business to Institute the New Covenant. Israel ceased to be in existence and was called Palistine untill 1948. The eagles are those who know the carcass of Israel of old contains images and likenesses in shadows and contrasts of Gods “Heavenly Kingdom at hand” but is void of the essence. The two are alike only in contrasts. We can know the infinite by the finite. They are opposites and on this we feast. The Israel of today is none of these.
So what then is the true Israel?From Exodus 4.22 the Lord called the Israel His only son. Was it Jacob who’s name was changed to Israel, was he Gods Son? Was it the 12 tribes who took on the name Israel as a people, was that Gods Son? Maybe it was later the land called Israel that is Gods Son, the chosen of God. The answer is none of those are Gods Son. They just portrayed in parables things of Gods Son, but they were not bone of His bone nor flesh of His flesh.
There is only one of whom the Father said “this is My only begotten Son in whom I am well pleased”. The true Israel of God is made from the same fabric as the Father of spirit and truth and put on flesh momentarily only for a cause. For us the elect to clearly see through contrasts our glorious estate. To understand the inheritance given to us in the Son for us to be found “in Christ”. In this way we are the body of Christ and heirs of the things of God by faith.
Israel and all its components served just this cause. They were contrasts depicting invisible, concurring realities of invisible things Eternal in the heavens.
And of Romans 9 that “all Israel will be saved being all of those who make up the Son of God of those who are in Christ. That Christ came superseding those visible things and providing for us and the invisible fulfillment that Israel is God’s firstborn meaning not the old Israel but Jesus Christ himself is the Israel of God, the only begotten in whom He is well pleased and no other. And as the tribes of Israel came from Israel, not a place but a person being Jacobs new name and identity, so too we are in Christ the true Israel and Son of God. The image and copy on earth has been fulfilled. Israel’s fullness had come. But “in the fullness of time God sent forth His Son to redeem those of the old system and old covenant.
God has never had an interest in a silly plot of land on planet Earth except to use for explanation purposes only for goodness sakes.
So Israel of old has been sown corruptible to be raised Incorruptible in the rescripted mind. Wherever the dead body and carcass is there shall also be the Eagles. We then are the Eagles that eat of those things. Sown corruptible, raised incorruptible in the spirit of our minds and expire the scripture that says “when that which is perfect has come, that which in part will be done away with”. And so we do.
That which was in part took on a written form and is now only written history called the “Old Testament”. The New Covenant gives no power for those stuck in the old patterns. Even as it says in the book of Hebrews that the way into the New is not possible while the old is still standing. And “He took away the first to establish the second”. Get it? He took it away. Why? Because it became an idolatrous notion, for they thought it was holy but it was only designed to represent what is Holy.
This was the stumbling stone of the Jews. So by retaining any carnal, physically touchable feature of of God keeps you out of His Kingdom. Even as Christ said ” where I go you cannot come now, but you shall follow me after”. And “if I do not depart from you, you cannot have The Spirit.
Paul said “we once knew Christ in the flesh, but from now on we know Him that way no more”. Any carnal expectation of seeing Gods things in a physical way is the veil that keeps you out. But “we with unveiled faces beholding as in a mirror the Glory of the Lord are being transfigured into the self same image”. Meaning, are Transfiguration is now.
It is the God of this age with the regurgitation of old expired scriptures, to believe that they need to be re-refilled in our day that is the lie. “While we look on to the things that are unseen for the things that are seen are temporary but the things that are unseen are eternal”. Another city in another Israel on Earth is still a temporary. Any attempt to remake and to re-hash the things that are seen of the culture of the law and the prophets again is to go against the will of God would cause us to reflect upwards.“So even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose Minds the God of this age has blinded”. And they have been blinded because they have been presented another kingdom that’s visible and they refuse to look on to the things that are eternal. And in this way they condemn themselves and remain unchanged behind the veil of ignorance. But we are those of the Transfiguration. Of the changed. Who go on to receive their inheritance. We are the elect.
That which is perfect is perfect in understanding. Even as Paul said the purpose of the Gospel was to bring this to a perfect man, perfect in understanding.
Galatians 6.15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.
16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.”
Differentiating from the Israel on Earth.
So the true Israel is not the land, it is not the people of the 12 tribes of Israel, it is not the modern Jew, but the risen Christ. And we are His body that fills all in all. We are “The Israel of God” as just quotrd from scripture. And ee are the natural fulfillment of the promises that are thr “unseen” as just quoted. The other Israel has stolen the things of God and called them their own. Run from that lie!
The kingdom of God is at hand
