The Israel of God

BIBLE SCRIPTURE VERSES

THE ISRAEL OF GOD

THE ISRAEL OF GOD

“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision avails any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.”  – Galatians 6:15-17

Romans 11:1-36 tells us that “The Good Olive Tree” is comprised of both Jewish and Gentile believers in Jesus the Messiah. The Jews are the natural branches, and the Gentiles have been grafted-in to become a part of the same tree. Together, they have become the true Israel of God today.

Metaphorically, we also bear upon our bodies the marks of the Lord Jesus (i.e. the stripes on His back from being whipped, the nail-scarred hands and feet from His crucifixion, and the stab wound on His side).

Under the New Covenant, the new Israel of God is the church of Jesus Christ. Regardless of race or nationality, every follower of Jesus who walks according to this principle has become a “new creation” and joint heir with the people of God. All New Covenant believers are blessed with peace and mercy as God’s true Israel.

Immanuel – God with us

The Prophet Isaiah

Messianic Prophecies in the Book of Isaiah fulfilled by Jesus.

Recognize that Jesus is God’s sign to us. He was born of a virgin in Bethlehem Judah, of the royal lineage of King David. He is Immanuel, God with us. “So the Lord himself will give you this sign: A virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and she will name him Immanuel [God Is With Us].” – Isaiah 7:14

In this series, we are taking a look at the Messianic prophecies in the Book of Isaiah that were fulfilled by Jesus of Nazareth who came to save, redeem, and reconcile both Jews and Gentiles to God.
