The Family of G-d

These United States of America are made up of 50 separate States, all living under the same Federal Law.

I chose to focus on Colorado because it is almost in the center of the land and because it is my home state. All people who live in Colorado are called Coloradians.

All Coloradians are also Americans. But not all Americans are Coloradians.

The Nation of Israel, like America, is made up of different “States” – or tribes. There are 12 of them. All the tribes lived under the same Law of G-d. The tribe of Judah is in the central part of Israel. The people of Judah lived in an area called Judea. They were called Jews. All Jews are Israelis but not all Israelis are Jews.

By the time the New Testament was written, eleven of the tribes were scattered over all the earth and had lost their identity. The only people left living in the Land of Israel were the Jews, and a few others that had trickled in from the other tribes. So all Israelites were referred to as Jews thereafter.

Technically Believers are actually Israelis, no matter what country they live in. The Family of G-d is made up of redeemed people who have chosen to follow the Lord. They have accepted Y’shua as their Saviour, asked forgiveness and strive to live in obedience to His Word.

G-d has one Family (the Church), one set of instructions for all of them (the Bible), and one land for them (the Commonwealth of Israel).

G-d has one book (set of instructions) for all His family. The Bible was written by Israelis – to Israelis – for Israelis and those who chose to be adopted in.

G-d has one Holy Land for His family. This is the Land of Israel. Technically Believers are actually Israelis, no matter what country they live in. (You can agree with this or not.)

The Family of G-d is made up of redeemed people who have chosen to follow the Lord. They have accepted Y’shua as their Saviour, asked forgiveness and strive to live in obedience to His Word.

The Family of G-d is made up of the seed of Abraham, according to the New Testament, and that includes all Believers. I trust that you have made the decision to become part of the Family of G-d. Ask the Lord to show you His truth and be sure to check out everything I say. G-d bless you!

See you next time!                                                                                                                                                                               Shalom, Sharaka
