Okay, I see what you’re saying, John; the passage cited doesn’t specifically mention Gentiles. However, Israel still isn’t the church, and the church still isn’t Israel. I highly recommend that everyone listen to a You Tube video called THE HERESY OF REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY....by David Hocking. If you do listen and still insist that Israel is the church and the church is Israel, you obviously care more for your cultic position than for the Word of God.
Doc, if I do a search on YouTube for "THE HERESY OF REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY", will I come to it? If so, and it is not too lengthy, I will watch it and get back to you. I still have the Christmas lecture to watch, which Sister B posted up some time ago, and two other SA sermons to listen to called "Is Christmas Christian" parts 1 and 2.

I'm not sure that I believe in replacement therapy, as I see the church and Israel intertwined and never to be separated, as is seen in the New Jerusalem in heaven, so I don't personally leave Israel behind and say, "Bye Bye" to them, as if that is the end of their place in history. Anyway, that might come out in the video, so chocks away, and tally ho.

We can second that; it's just a matter of frugality and self-discipline, encouraged by hardly anyone these days.
Thank you Neil. In mine own experience of life in this world, "it's just a matter of" was not part of my thinking as a non-Christian, and I got into debt like anyone else. It was a case of wanting something (coveting) which I had not the funds for.

But praise be to God, through conversion and the indwelling Holy Ghost, my wisdom increased, and I began seeing things in a totally new light. For one thing, I never needed anything to bring me joy, because as David experienced, "my cup runneth over". I never needed the booze any more because as Paul said, "be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit" [which brings much joy unspeakable into the heart].

JAG, absolutely. Yea and amen.

The only reason people on SA know me so well is because I never change monikers, believing that to be always changing moniker is a deception and unbecoming for a Christian.

If anyone in the shadows, behaving like some thought police, would care to convo with me about any subject, please do so with your one, known moniker.

Many folks have been so shamed in the past, that they change their moniker, hoping to get away with it, and start afresh; but their writing DNA is all over the page, and soon recognised.

Brethren will often strive with me, and that is fine. I used to strive with older Christians when I was a babe in Christ, and I found that I learnt a lot by arguing my case. It was a case of learning by one's mistakes.

Every Christian has a biblical duty to separate from certain churches.

What a great encouragement you are. Sure, God loves you. He loves you enough to send his Son into the world by incarnation, that he might live and die in your place, so that you may be washed in the blood of the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Wickedness. I remember being taken to task about preaching on this sort of thing going on in schools way back in 2007, in Sidmouth town centre (open air) in England. Such vehemency against me. Devilish. And the general public kept walking on by, unconcerned. Oh, just another cranky open air preacher.

Sure I might have appeared cranky, but it would have helped if just a few from the church had joined me instead of leaving it all to me. They all got holy huddle syndrome. Didn't want to get tainted by the world. Didn't want to hear any swear words or get spat upon by devil-inspired worldlings. Well I don't want to hear swear words or get spat upon, but there is a price to pay if you want to see souls get saved. This is where the love of Christ is more powerful than the hatred of the devil.

Doc, no problem. Be at peace.

Read the scripture I put up, and tell me where it mentions Gentiles as well as Jews are part of the new covenant.

I agree, JAG.

It is a very simple matter to live debt-free. Totally debt-free.

Read the scriptures. Israel: one entity. The Gentiles: a second entity. The church: a third entity composed of saved Gentiles and saved Jews. The church is not Israel. Israel is not the church. Read the scriptures.
Dr Tim, what strange teaching is this?

Are you saying that the new covenant is only for Jews?

Hebrews 8:8-10 KJV
(8)  For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
(9)  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
(10)  For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

The way you phrased your statement, it seems as though the Gentiles are not partakers of the new covenant.

Unless the church IS Israel, of course.

Just a word in support of JohnUk as some have given their words of rebuke against him, I give my words of support for him. He doesn’t agree with me on things I believe at times not me on his however we both see each other as blood washed sister and brother in the body of Christ each given special gifts from God to be used for the kingdom of God. You have yours, I have mine. I give account for how I lived my life, you give account for yours. Actually I have enjoyed reading the different ways we each carry on with our ministries and the encouragement that I’ve been given and hopefully given back. Things can get heated when we get on our differences, but we still have that deep Agape love because of who we are in Christ.
How nicely put, Dolores. Thank you. This is what it is all about, this Christianity. It focuses on the love of God and love for God and his creation. It is a big mistake to love only those we agree with. Jesus taught about doing that, and it being no different from the heathen. Christians have a better thing to do, to love even their enemies; but especially to love those of the household of faith. It is by this, that we know we have passed from death unto life.

James, I ran out of space - OOS.

Some of the problems you will have with the texts are these.

1. We can be sure that Isaiah 49:1-7 is about the coming Messiah. (Just for Lurker's benefit who asked a good question, how about when the second Person asked the first Person, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me.")

2. If in Acts 13:47, Paul takes the prophecy to himself, so that he is the light to bring the Gentiles to faith, there are two possibles:

a). Because he is an ambassador of Christ, the prophecy can relate to both Christ and to Paul, because Christ is speaking forgiveness to the world through his chosen vessel to the Gentiles.

b). The RCC has been right all along, and the pope truly is the vicar of Christ, that is, instead of Christ. But that would make Paul the first pope.

Personally, because I believe that Isaiah 49:1-7 refers to the coming Messiah, and I believe that Bro US has correctly interpreted the use of "thee" and "you", I believe you to be in the wrong.

However, if you wish to continue and make the final point, I will also have a look at that, and we can go from there.

Now we're going on real nice and friendly, keep it up, brethren.

James Thomas wrote:
Not at all, I had to take care of some obligations.
I understand your POV, but
Doesn't it beg the question as to why Paul claimed that particular prophecy as his?
It is a good question, James.

Acts 13:46-47 KJV
(46)  Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
(47)  For so hath the Lord commanded us, [saying,] I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

The word "saying" is not in the greek. If it was, then you have such a strong point as to be agreed by all of us. But.

Paul has been preaching to Jews in various syngagogues since setting off from Antioch in Syria. Now he is in Antioch in Pisidia, and the whole city is coming to hear Paul preach. But the Jews are getting mad with Paul, and contradict what he is saying.

It is at this point that Paul is reminded of the great commission, that the whole world is to hear this good news, having been commanded after the resurrection. So he then quotes Jehovah from the OT.

Ah, the departing insult to all my brethren and sisters here on SA, vainly imagining them to be so simple as to be taken in by anything anyone writes, especially me.

I have always said, if anyone wants to learn something, there is over a million sermons here on SA from a variety of sources, some of them even going back centuries. Go there if you want to learn, not the forums where there is nothing but debate and people hurling insults.

Once again, the christmass cheer only lasted five minutes.

Whenever some people turn up after a time away, you can be sure there will be evidence of old, nasty and reformed comments, which is not unusual, along with attempts to discredit others by telling lies or half-truths. Another thing you can be sure of is that threads will close down because of the abuse being hurled at certain ones, without good cause, and which is certainly not biblical.

The Reason TMC's advice goes unheeded is because certain ones are vainly imagining that they are "all right, have their doctrine perfect, their church is perfect, never changes from year to year, just keep it going, keep listening, keep attending, do as we say, don't argue with the LEADER."

Oh, I never argue with my LEADER. Thank you.

James, sorry if I caused you to cease the discussion prematurely, on account of what I said below. Of course I can understand that, if the passage is referring to the Messiah as I believe it is, then your thoughts are sort of knocked around a bit.
___________

James, there is little doubt in my mind that Isaiah 49:1-7 is referring specifically to the Lord Jesus Christ. He is called here ISRAEL in verse 3 in the OT and is the antitype in the NT, the HEAD of his church.

So, although verse 6 of 49 may appear to be meant the apostle Paul in Acts 13:47, I believe it refers to Christ:

John, it was you who was making the assertion that we could only do things that were found during NT times. I am obviously saying that cannot be true and that your church proves my point.
Fair enough bro. If I said that, I retract it.

But I don't have a church. Well, I don't think I do.

BO is a great representative of the reformed churches - that is exactly what most of them are like. And that is why it is doubtful if I will ever attend another one for the rest of my life. I've said it before, that if churches keep shooting their members, they will eventually close down, cause there is only the pastor and two elders left, and no-one to hearken to their demands. And still they will say, I am fine, our church is fine, we do everything well, where did the people go?"

Frank, excellent points.

I doubt if there is but a few women left in Wales who would accept that sort of headship. That is how far away from God the country is. And I'm just talking about women in the church. The rest, of course, do not accept it, especially with the TV set promoting how women are to be; it's like a daily injection of "this is how you are to live your life, girls".

Here’s a few things they would find at your church that weren’t part of the early New Testament Church. They would find people with the entirety of Scripture in a small book put together and manufactured by things that were non-existant in their day. They would find a building made up of things that were not part of first century existence with electricity and indoor plumbing. The language spoken certainly would be foreign to them and the currency also. You see to say we should only have what is found in Scripture for all areas of our church ministry is not what the New Testament demands
Bro US, are you saying that these things are wrong, because they are not to be found in scripture? Or are you saying that they are right, even though they are not found in scripture?

This is where discernment is required. The apostle Paul didn't have a Class AB public address amplifier and system, therefore we should not use one?

Sliced bread could not be bought in Palestine. Or could it?

No-one wore a tie in Palestine; why should we?

Christian women never ever wore trousers in Israel; do we adopt that?

Are we better off with printed hymnbooks? Or better off learning the psalms from birth?

Of course it would have impossible for Paul to have evangelised the whole world, but that is precisely what Jesus has done.

James, I have been looking at your question, and find that I do not understand it. "How did Paul open the door of faith?"

John, I know I am speaking to a brother in you who is very familiar with the Word. I can think of at least 2 occasions where Apostles are referred to as the foundation of the church. Are you saying that nearly 2000 years later our Lord is still laying the foundation?
Bro, just off the top of my head, I think we ought to say that "the church" is not an institution nor an organisation, but a living organism. It is one holy, catholic, and apostolic church.

Unfortunately, instead of preparing saints for the ongoing work of the ministry in a local setting, we have developed a clergy/laity system, where you have professional Christians ministering, and the church members look on as spectators. And so the biblical norm is lost, requiring a fundamental return to start from scratch again.

This is something I am doing myself. I am looking at scripture and finding:-

1. Things that are missing in the church which ought to be there.

2. Things that are in the church which ought to be missing.

Indeed, I would go so far as to say that if either Paul or Peter were to visit a dozen different churches, they would not recognise our practices.

Chris, no, I meant, mighty fine bro!
