In Romans 8:17, the Bible says through the spirit of adoption believers are the children of God so heirs of God and joint – heirs with Christ. So call God Almighty ABBA Father because now joint-heirs with Christ Jesus, the First Born Son of God. As adopted believer children of God we take on Yahweh God Elohim’s Family Surname. So become fully grafted into God’s family to enjoy God’s love, mercy, grace, forgiveness, blessings with same privileges as the natural siblings. In most families where adoption is successful, adopted child is integrated and well treated one cannot tell a person is adopted unless told so.
Similarly, God adopts His Christian Children believers into His Kingdom. Although, a grafted person has same privileges, a father does not displace or disregard the natural child in favour of the adopted child. Both are entitled to a fair share of inheritance of an adopted father’s wealth and assets according to his will. So can rest assured that both are loved equally because the father has room enough in his heart to embrace both equally without fear of losing love or affection of their father.
God loves those grafted in as He Loves the first – born. It is the deep love for the first born to gain siblings grafted in that caused God to use the last desperate measure of cruxifiction. In fact God loves them so much He Gave His First Born to die to save those grafted in. In appreciation and gratitude, God expects those grated in to learn from first – born Son, Who Lives since beginning of time. To respect and honour God’s Chosen Heir to the throne of David as entrusted Throne of God. God has given all power and authority in heaven and earth to Jesus Christ by the power of attorney so hear and obey Christ.
God chose Jesus among His Jewish siblings to accomplish His Plans and Purpose for mankind. An adopted child cannot assume superiority above a first born to discredit, blackmail, to destroy to perpetuate himself in his place. The adopted person has to submit to God’s chosen way to yield to God. In addition the other natural siblings must accept the adopted child although they may feel they have exclusive right of control over their father. Yet must adapt to love those grafted in to please their father. It may not be relationship of their choice but they have to obey father’s decision for their own good and peace of mind.
They cannot refuse to interact with new adopted sibling for they are joined together forever into eternity. Like any modern family understands, members are not identical clones. Each has own unique personality or annoying habits to put up with or different things to contend with. Yet still part of same family for life so the relationship is not negotiable. God knows many people may not like their siblings, brothers and sisters, family or extended relatives and in-laws but are stuck together forever for life. So must network with people of different traits whether one likes them or not in Jesus Name as God ordained.
One cannot tell God to keep the siblings you prefer and love then ask God to get rid of family members you hate or cannot stand. This is the Gospel truth of the Kingdom of God based on the multitudes of people from all various nations, tribes and tongues. One may not see things from God’s point view or agree with God’s choice but must value, respect and trust God Knows Best. This will help resolve many issues that face all God’s Children in His Kingdom today. Although it is true God’s Favour during the time of Gentiles enables non -Jews to become part of God’s Kingdom, yet nobody will ever replace God’s Jewish covenant. So replacement theology is not a sound Biblical doctrine. Jesus gave His Life first for the Jews to fulfil the new covenant so God wants all people saved. God is not a respecter of persons exclusively preferring a group above others. God treats believers as joint – heirs with His Son Jesus Christ to reign in life. God Embraces Jews and Gentiles equally in redemption blood of Jesus Christ so love another.
