Therefore, Yeshua had to not only die to free Israel, but had to also rise from the dead so that she could remarry her former husband, who was in reality a New Husband. All of the lawlessness her adultery of the first marriage was literally buried with Yeshua the Husband, Yahweh in the flesh.
Now he was free to remarry his former wife without breaking his own instructions. Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles [scattered Israel, out of covenant] in the flesh…that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise , having no hope and without God in the world But now in Christ Yeshua you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
Therefore, the New Covenant is not a new dispensation where Yahweh suddenly starts operating on the basis of grace with all of humanity. Yahweh has always been gracious and that quality of grace and mercy is the very thing that Yahweh declared about himself on Mt. The New Covenant, rather, is not a new basis of grace, but is rather a gracious, renewed marriage covenant between Yahweh and His divorced wife who had been scattered to the nations, just as Yahweh had promised would happen:.
Yahweh will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, gods of wood and stone. Deut ; see also Lev Jer , , , Ezek , , , , Does she get a new marriage covenant? Let there be no doubt, Judah most certainly deserved to be divorced because of her adulterous heart and wandering eyes which deeply hurt Yahweh Ezek , but Yahweh never did divorce Judah because of the promise that he made to King David:.
Ps They have turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers who refused to hear My words, and they have gone after other gods to serve them; the House of Israel and the House of Judah have broken My covenant which I made with their fathers. Furthermore, the two sister nations needed to be reunited into one nation: one wife.
Yahweh declared that He would in fact make a new marriage contract with both houses:. Yahweh also promised that he would join the two houses back together as depicted in the imagery of a stick, broken in two, which becomes one again:. Judah could have a new relationship with Yahweh and so too Israel could come back into fellowship with her husband.
For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

A Study in Biblical Interpretation By Martin Sicker The focus in The Convocation at Sinai is on what the biblical text is telling us, explicitly as well as implicitly.
Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, Eph As a result their joint status as adulterers was wiped away. Furthermore, the House of Judah and the House of Israel have become one again and the wall of separation between them has been removed. The situation has now been rectified, though not in full. For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
So what is the New Covenant? His death released his unfaithful wife both Judah and Israel from the curses of the broken marriage contract, and allowed northern Israel to remarry him, and for Israel and Judah to become one nation again.
Yeshua did all that was necessary to restore his bride, Israel, just as he promised in Hosea to Israel, whom he divorced:. Hos However, what is even more amazing is that through the dispersion of the House of Israel to the nations, the entire world is being blessed because the House of Israel was assimilated into the nations and became one with them. Indeed, Yahweh said that it was not enough for Yeshua to just restore the tribes of Jacob, but he would be salvation for the nations all over the planet:. Yahweh reiterates this promise by saying that He would bring in the outcasts of Israel and also others:.
And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd. John Paul could say that with enthusiasm because, as an expert of the Scriptures, he knew that he was seeing the fulfillment of prophecy before his very eyes — the two houses were reunited as Yahweh said in Ezekiel:.
Ezek Hi Doug. Paul is the apostle to the gentiles after all. I fail to see how this applies to Israel at all. I invite you to watch my video on this matter.
The old testament speaks of two in-gatherings of the Jews whom God has dispersed among the nations. The first in gathering is in disbelief and is destined for Gods wrath the present state of Israel the second in gathering is in faith and will result in eternal blessing the Messianic Kingdom.
And why is James then written to the tribes scattered abroad? The way has been made but it has not been fulfilled. We are waiting for our saviour.
God Bless. When predefining the quotes that can be used, additionally your messaging and tone of voice might be garanteed. I believe Paul you are troubled. Yahsuswah i believe means ,when he say,s he will gather frim all corners. The people who reside there today , I doo not believe they are all following GOD.
S WORD. I used to be a pretribulationist and a Zionist, but now I am neither, since I cannot support either from Scripture. Firstly, let me say that though I am no longer a Zionist, that does not mean I am a supercessionist i. I do not accept the ideas of replacement theology : it is very clear from Scripture that God does indeed have a special future purpose for ethnic Israel.
Neither am I no longer a Zionist because I am pro-Palestinian or because I am a Leftist — I am neither, and I am also very skeptical of the bulk of the anti-Israeli propaganda in the mainstream media. I am no longer a Zionist, simply because Zionism cannot be supported from the Bible and reeks of the Enemy and deception. The condition for being returned to the land is Christian Zionists support a nation which is secular, almost entirely Christ-rejecting to the point that Messianic Jews are even persecuted by their own people , and which trusts not in YHWH but in the arm of its own strength.
Israel was told that YHWH was their strength, their defender, and that they should trust in Him alone and so their kings were told never to multiply horses , for example. Modern Israel has completely ignored this, amassing the most formidable standing military in the region. Zionism is totally tied up with the global conspiracy NWO, Illuminati, call it what you want , and its roots are with the likes of the Rothschilds, who are the money behind it.
The founders of modern Israel were not godly men who turned in repentance to Yeshua their Messiah, but Christ-despising Talmudists, atheists and Communists. They rejected Christ and were proud of it. Modern Israel is a deception Satan has prepared for evangelical Christians. Why evangelicals?
In , Charles Beke proposed that Sinai was the Jabal al-Nour meaning mountain of light , a volcanic mountain at the northern end of the Gulf of Aqaba, and which has great significance in Islam for other reasons;  Beke died the following year, but his writings published posthumously retracted this identification four years later in favour of Jebel Baggir , with Horeb being argued to be a different mountain - the nearby Jebel Ertowa.
The possibility of an alternate site located in Saudi Arabia has also drawn attention due to the Apostle Paul's assertion in the first century that Mount Sinai was located in Arabia, although in Paul's time, the region of Arabia Petraea would have included both the modern Sinai peninsula and northwestern Saudi Arabia. A possible candidate within the Arabia theory has been that of Jabal al-Lawz meaning 'mountain of almonds'.
Joseph's University believes that the archaeological evidence is too tenuous to draw conclusions but has stated that "Jabal al Lawz may also be the most convincing option for identifying the Mt. Sinai of biblical tradition" and should be researched. Staff from the Foundation traveled to the site multiple times and included video and photographic evidence in the project. Jabal al-Lawz has been rejected by scholars such as James K.
While equating Sinai with Petra would indicate that the Israelites journeyed in roughly a straight line from Egypt via Kadesh Barnea , and locating Sinai in Saudi Arabia would suggest Kadesh Barnea was skirted to the south, some scholars have wondered whether Sinai was much closer to the vicinity of Kadesh Barnea itself. Halfway between Kadesh Barnea and Petra, in the southwest Negev desert in Israel, is Har Karkom , which Emmanuel Anati excavated, and discovered to have been a major Paleolithic cult centre, with the surrounding plateau covered with shrines, altars, stone circles, stone pillars, and over 40, rock engravings; although the peak of religious activity at the site dates to — BCE, the exodus is dated 15 Nisan Hebrew calendar ; BCE ,  and the mountain appears to have been abandoned between — BCE, Anati proposed that Jabal Ideid was equatable with biblical Sinai.
