Introductory Study: Mid-East Peace, How? (5)
Nation of Israel (4)
From Ishmael, to Cyrus, to Nebuchadnezzar, to the Gentile Holy Candlestick, Philadelphia, the twelve tribes Kingdom of Gentile Christians. (For there shall be one king to them all).
…For from this mention and promise by God to Ishmael, who was Hebrew and Egyptian mixed, is His intention taught for the latter to be born. The ‘Twelve Tribes’ has always been the term God and Jesus have used to describe Israel. God in establishing them through Jacob, Jesus in appointing the twelve Apostles as the twelve princes of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, and in the Power – Holiness – and Strength of God and His Holy Spirit in remembering His Promise written in Revealations C.11, v.4… These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. C.7…. (and the twelve tribes of the Nation of Israel were sealed by God).
The establishment and promise of the Gentile Kingdom of God then passed from Ishmael to Cyrus, to Nebudchadnezzar, and finally to the Church of Philadelphia. The previous lessons show the actual verses/sayings of God concerning His Intent through Ishmael. The pedigree of this Kingdom is thus continued to Cyrus.
King Cyrus… Isaiah C.45, v.1…. Thus saith the Lord to his annointed, to Cyrus, whose righth hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: (v.4)… For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:… (v.13)… I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price or reward, saith the Lord of hosts. (v.16)… They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols. But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
(v.18)… For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. (v.22)… Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in rightheousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
[NOTE: And here is the defining declaration of the deposed last King of Israel ~ the Prophet of Israel. In the east of the Nation of Israel were these spoken to King Cyrus of the end of the world that shall come upon all the inhabitants. As well is seen here the words by Jesus to Israel, that they would be desolate until Christians are blessed in them. For they have refused God as all in like times. Although forsaken unto that time, being approxiamately 2,000 years from year – 0 A.D., the hope of their salvation and token on the earth are the very promise of a Prophet and King to whom God himself shall direct to the annointing of Messiah to bring in everlasting salvation. For on this wise spake Jesus, (Luke C.12, v.50)… ‘But I [Jesus] have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straightened till it be accomplished! ‘ . ] .
NEXT, Lesson 5 …shall list the remaining scriptures of exact National Boundaries of the Nation of Israel, and the Summation Lesson 6 for this study for Bible Students, as we are to the end.
