Promises to Israel

Most of the Promises listed below are ‘Conditional,’ requiring that the recipient to ‘perform.’ Just Notice the little word IF … You do this, or don’t do that” – then you get the promised blessing.

  • The promises listed below are Biblically Applicable only to “the Circumcision (Israel)” under “the Law.”
  • The promises listed below are NOT Biblically Applicable to Bible believing Christians, who are seen by God as Gentiles who are Not under the Law.”

Romans 6:14 below is written by Paul, asthe Apostle to the Gentiles” (Rom. 11:13)

14 … for ye are NOT under the law, but under grace. (Romans 6:14 (KJV)

In Bible study, Always be careful to note ‘to whom’ the Bible Letter is written; e.g., The book of ‘James’ is addressed to the ‘twelve tribes’ of Israel, ‘Scattered abroad.’

1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. (James 1:1 (KJV)

We should never take to heart ‘other people’s Bible mail.’ All the Bible is for our learning (2Tim. 3:16) but only Paul’s epistles are to us and about us as Gentiles.

Promises in the Hebrew Epistles are the books of the Bible listed in order from ‘Hebrews to Revelation.’ Recall that  Jesus’ Apostles were sent to Israel. Thus, James John, and Peter were told to go to “the lost sheep of the house of Israel,” NOT the Gentiles.

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Matthew 10:5-6 (KJV)

From this we can suppose that they are writing these promises to their constituents only, Israel.

This is a lesson in rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2Tim. 2:15)
