A COVENANT FOR ALL PEOPLES
13 - FINALLY, TO BECOME PART OF
GOD'S INVISIBLE ELECT
-YOU MUST BECOME PART OF ISRAEL'S OLIVE TREE-
“I say then, did Israel stumble that they might fall? God forbid! But by their fall, salvation has come unto the Gentiles to provoke them to jealousy.
Now if their fall is the riches of the world, and their loss the riches of the Nations, how much more their fullness? For if the casting away of them is the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
aaron—These first passages are explaining some of the intricate details concerning the future hope that awaits God’s first peoples Israel. It is a picture of the end and their life expectation in the Resurrection on the Last Day. Speaking first about “their fullness” that is promised them as an institutional peoples, and second, the resultant of their finally being resurrected as “life from the dead” in the resurrection of the last day. Rev.20:5, Jn.5:28-29
“And if the First—fruit is holy, so is the lump. And if the Root is holy, so are the branches. But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being wild olive (branches) were grafted in among them, and did become partakers with them of the Root and the fatness of the Olive Tree.” (Rom.11:11, 12, and 15—17)
aaron—Here, we see only one preexistent Olive Tree in view—the Natural Tree—Israel's Olive Tree. Then we also see the Gentiles being described as wild olive branches that are grafted in among the existing natural branches. The picture that we have here clearly represents the make—up of the invisible Israel that is to consists of Jews and non—Jews alike. This is the true congregation of God who are always identified as Jews, the Circumcision, and Israel: the hidden Israel of God.
“You will say then, the branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. Well, because of their unbelief they were broken off, and you are standing by faith. Be not high-minded, but fear. For if God spared not the natural branches, neither will He spare you."
aaron—As this passage is speaking specifically about God's invisible dispositions, the warning here "For if God spared not the natural branches, neither will He spare you" is fully applicable for all of God's followers of today:
"Behold then the goodness and severity of God. Toward them that fell severity, but toward you, God's goodness, if you continue in His goodness, otherwise you also shall be cut out. And they (physical Israel—the natural branches) also, if they continue not in unbelief, shall be grafted in. For God is able to graft them in again. Into the Natural Olive Tree.” (Rom.11:19—24)
aaron—It is only by the Creator's intricate design that we have come to understand these complexities that are involved in God’s universal reconciliation: As well as coming to understand God’s invisible dispositions that have always been hidden within His established visible institutions of Israel and the Christian Church.Consequently, we must come to an in—depth understand of God’s universal reconciliation through our observation of His first institutional peoples Israel, combined with the New Testament revelation of His invisible ELECT priesthood; The Israel of God; The invisible Congregation of God. Which is partially represented today by what we have mistakenly called "The Invisible Church of God". But in all actuality, this so called "invisible Church of God" is in fact an engrafted participating segment within the hidden Israel of God that is always being secretly selected out from God's visible institutional corporate elect Jews and non—Jews alike. And these selected ELECT ones must be called by their royal name—Israel; the Israel of God. Amen.
