FIRST TO JEWS THEN ALL

image
God-Given Gospel Mission is to Jews first then all Gentiles in the whole world through Jesus and His 12 disciples. So ensured they achieved good success by making the world largely Christian. This group multiplied including 120 disciples in the upper room. Leading onto events of large scale increase of 5000 during Pentecost. Prior to this Bible says many Jewish believers followed Jesus in His ministry. So loyal people on the original gospel team core evangelists growing into world’s largest salvation project. In Mount Olives discourse Jesus taught living history events going to take place in Jerusalem. Jesus trained disciples to spread into various towns with Gospel in Israel first for 3 years. So many Jews and Gentile people became Christians. This teaching tells all people the Gospel Message is not exclusively only for the Jews though it starts with Jews. Jesus as Seed of King David a Jew paid hectic price Sacrificing His Life as Ransom for many. This is the reason why Romans 1:16 says the Gospel is to go to Jews first. Paul writes in passage “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to the Jew first and to the Gentile.”

God’s Divine Mandate reveals the order of evangelism as defined. The Gospel is first to go to Jew because the Jewish people are chosen specifically reasons. God chose Israel nation as His people through Messiah and God preprepared salvation plan for all to be saved. This Covenant is in Scripture on Messianic prophecies and so fulfilled in Yeshua Messiah. For thousands of years God prepared Jews for Temple in Jerusalem with sacrifices. Romans 15:8-9 reveals God’s Divine evangelism planned here confirmed. Jesus came to save first Jews because as a Jew charity begins at home first to offer salvation and Messianic Kingdom to Israel. When a Gentile woman asked Jesus for His Help, He said in Matthew 15:24: “I am sent first to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” Paul and other Apostles followed this divine order in the book of Acts by going to the Jews in the synagogues first to preach the Gospel. So salvation and the Messiah comes directly first to Jewish people.

Jesus told the Samaritan woman by the well in John 4:22: Salvation is first to Jews but saves Gentiles along the way. The Church is to follow same order of evangelism in Romans 1:16 practised by Jesus and the Apostles to witness to Jews first. Jesus taught them in turn to preach in Jerusalem, Judea then to all uttermost parts of the world. This is why Jesus said Gospel is first to Jews then gentiles in all parts of world. Many Jewish believers sponsor the Gospel message to all nations. Gospel in all the nations for salvation or witness against those who reject it to have no excuse to say they never heard it. God Loves all and wants all to be saved. Great commission says all must go in the world to preach. Some think Jesus means Gospel only for the Jews in His generation. So say it has nothing to do with Christians in modern generation. Private conversations on Mount Olive by Jesus tell people Gospel statement not Authentic God commands Moses received on Mount Sinai. Gospel includes all nations by Messianic Jews.

Jesus trained His disciples to go to the uttermost parts of the earth. Disciples responded to their calling with personal sacrifices like Jesus gave up day jobs and earnings. To reassure the disciples their sacrificesnot in vain Jesus promised them great reward in heaven with him for a loyal dedicated service. To sit on 12 thrones in heaven next to Jesus before God’s Throne. Established truth misconstrued to say 12 tribes of Israel, Jacob’s son’s are rulers of Jesus Kingdom already established on earth. So suggest Jesus already established God’s Kingdom on earth without need for Second Coming on earth. Some further distort the Gospel saying Jesus is too Glorified to live in the flesh and blood among humans so operates only in the spirit through His angels. So Jesus proves in the transfiguration that flesh and blood can be on earth from heaven at anytime. Nation of Israel is a ruling of God’s Kingdom established before Jesus was on earth. But the 12 tribes leaders are not same 12 Apostles now forming the 24 elders in heaven before God’s Throne. Jesus was born long after God’s tribes settled in Israel as God commanded them to do. Jesus also predicted Jerusalem and Temple will go under siege so they must flee from town to town to preach Gospel.

So spread Gospel along the way while they try to avoid capture. Escaping into the various towns in Israel means the Gospel received freely spreads freely to all other parts of Israel. Then spreads further afield to whole world as a result. Spreading out to the whole world by the discipled fulfills the great commission. The Great Commission was given from Jerusalem because the preaching of the Gospel began there. The holy city Jerusalem is mentioned 811 times in Scripture. God Chose this city as His Eternal City where He places His Name there forever in 2 Chronicles 6:6. Jesus Returns Physically in Flesh to Reign in Israel over all the world from Jerusalem for a thousand years. Ezekiel 5:5 says God placed Jerusalem at the centre of the earth. There Jesus died for the sins of the world and was raised again. He will Return there when He Comes again. Jerusalem and Jews are dear to God significant in Second Coming of Jesus. In Acts 1:8 Christ has commanded the disciples to take the Gospel in whole world starting in Jerusalem. This is important to lay a sound foundation for the Gospel. God’s Favour graft gentiles in great commission includes all world.

Ezekiel 5:5 says God placed Jerusalem at the centre of the earth. There Jesus died for the sins of the world and was raised again. He will Return there when He Comes again. Jerusalem and Jews are dear to God’s significant Second Coming of Jesus. In Acts 1:8 Christ commanded the disciples to take the Gospel to the whole world starting in Jerusalem. This is important to lay a sound foundation for the Gospel. The Favour of God grafts in Gentiles in the great commission also includes world. The Gentiles are not to replace Jews working together as siblings in one family in covenant as joint heirs of God in Christ. History has gone full circle because Jews purposely spread the Gospel did the world a great favour. As one good turn deserves another the seeds planted in the Gentile is bearing great fruit and multiplying. The Jews in turn are continuing to receive Gospel as Romans 1:16 commands believers not to be ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for SALVATION. God’s power is at work for the salvation of every one who believes. In Romans 1:16 is commitment to proclaim Gospel to the Jewish people in Israel to build a bridge of love by conducting the Gospel outreaches in Israel. Jewish people are open, appreciative and interested in the good news of Jesus the Messiah. Many continue to accept Yeshua as their Lord and Saviour since the time of Jesus. So Jews born anew in Messiah love God and are helping to take Gospel to more Jews for all Israel shall be saved. Israel is not an option or choice for Christians it is God’s Command in Bible Scriptures. So Bible provides 7 reasons why present age must prepare for return of Christ soon to earth. God Gives reasons for preaching Gospel to Jews in Israel in these details.

1. Romans 1:16 says the Gospel must go to Jews first. Paul writes in passage, I am not ashamed of Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation to the Jew first and also to Gentiles.” This divine mandate of evangelism defines Gospel is to go to Jews first. God chose the Israel nation and people through Messiah to Come to prepare them by Covenants, the Hebrew Scriptures so Jesus came to save the Jews as a Jew. Jesus came first to offer salvation and Messianic kingdom to Israel. 2. The Great Commission given in Jerusalem so preaching of Gospel began there. Jesus will Reign overworld from Jerusalem for 1000 years. Ezekiel 5:5 says God placed Jerusalem at the centre of the earth so Jesus died for the sins of the world and raised again. So Return when He comes to Jerusalem His Jewish capital for 3,000 years so logically strategically placed by God’s Wisdom. To preach Gospel to Jews in place they hold highest above all on earth Jerusalem is Elohim Adonai’s GOD’S Dwelling Place.

3.The Gospel to Jews fulfills prophecy to hasten Return of Jesus Christ. This prophecy in Matthew 10: 23 from Jesus says, ‘when they persecute you in this city flee to another. I assure you that you will not go through all the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.” Jesus predicted in this prophecy that the evangelization of the cities of Israel will not be complete before He Returns. This prophecy will be fulfilled during the time of tribulation period Jewish Christians persecuted for Gospel witness in Israel. Since 2,000 years the present Church age Gospel is more actively preaching to the Jews in Israel because they were once scattered throughout the nations of the world since 70 A.D. This changed in 1948 when Israel’s rebirth as a nation again means Jews returned en masse to their ancient homeland. Messianic movement in Israel growing since the days of Jesus and Apostles evangelism Gospel preaching to Jews in their own homeland again. Continues to Second Coming of Yeshua confirmed in Old Testament in Isaiah 62:10-12 and in Isaiah 62:10-12. Is amazing prophecy says God will send Gentile believers to Jerusalem “from the ends of the earth” to proclaim to the Jewish inhabitants of Jerusalem the Saviour is Coming to redeem and rescue them. The Hebrew “salvation” in Isaiah 62:11 is the same word for the name of Jesus in Hebrew Yeshua, Y’shua or Yeshuach. Yeshua or Jesus in means “salvation.” “God’s Son, Jesus Yeshua born in Matthew 1:21 Saves His people from their sins.”

God wants Jews to say to Jerusalem Yeshua Messiah or Jesus is Coming! Gentile ambassadors of Christ prepare the way for Return of Yeshua Messiah Saviour like John the Baptist prepared Israel, Messiah’s first Coming predicted in Isaiah 40:3. And Isaiah 63 opens with Second Coming of the Messiah in glory. After His way is prepared His Gentile ambassadors of chapter 62 come to share the Gospel of salvation to Israel and Jerusalem. The Christian church is not replacing Jews. Prophecy is being fulfilled as Christ’s Coming Strategies of GOD’S PLAN. All believers says 1 John 2:28 who abide in Christ when He Appears are confident so will not shrink from the Messiah in shame at His Second Coming on earth. 4.Gospel preaching to Israel pays back the debt gentile believers owe to Jewish people. Paul said in Romans 15:27 believers are indebted to Israel because of Spiritual blessings they bring into the world. These blessings come through Jewish Bible, Messiah, and Judeo-Christian ethic of Western civilisation. The New Testament Church is obligated out of Christ’s love to share Gospel to Jews as Messiah’s ethnic people. Gives back to God to pay spiritual debt of gratitude to share with them the great riches of salvation given through Jesus Christ.KJV_Romans_1-16.jpg5. To prepare Jewish hearts for a great Tribulation Jesus talked about as signs of the Lord’s Return. An understanding of Bible prophecy prepares the people to know what is going on. Witnessing to Israeli Jews plants Gospel seeds to save lives after Rapture so the 144,000 Jewish evangelists in Revelation 7 can be saved and sealed. God’s Word does not return void so the Jews witnessed not saved, can after Rapture of Church be saved. So tribulation period touches many shaken to follow Messiah more than saved in all history of Christianity. So 6.Salvation of Israel is at the heart of God and Jesus who wept over the lost conditions of Jerusalem by saying, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing” in Matthew 23:37. Jesus laments over their rejection to be saved as their Lord Saviour suffer eternal loss and ruin. Christ Forgives Jews as Spirit of Christ spoke through Paul in Romans 10:1 of ardent desire and prayer to God Israel must be saved. Jesus weeps over lost condition of Israel whole world.

Messiah Purchased salvation for Jews through His death on the cross. Jews who believe receive Yeshua Messiah are saved. Christian love with compassion, understanding and patience, humility, empathy, give freely same opportunity Jews shared Gospel with them. This is in obedience of Gospel of the True Messiah Yeshua. The church has understand the plan of God as part of the Bigger Purpose of God. Christ is Head of the Church so all members are part of His Body to help propagate Gospel fulfil God’s Kingdom Agenda to help usher in the transitional change whole world is longing for. The Church alone cannot accomplish God’s Plan because they are too big for humans to achieve on their own. God teams up with mankind through Messiah Jesus and Messianic Jews to save whole world. It is those who Obey God to Prioritise for His Mission on earth enable Kingdom of God to expand into many territories. This can be best achieved when united with GOD’S Chosen people on earth.

7. The Gospel to Jews of Jerusalem as God commands is preaching Gospel in Jerusalem, Israel. The world directly is connected to Jews and Bible as God Ordained for believing Christians. This command by God in Isaiah 40:9-10 is to bring good news salvation to Israel with boldness and strength. Believers must by faith take this seriously to financially support Christians who love Jews and bless Israel. God opens doors with the opportunity for Jews to be saved by the hearing and believing word of God the Gospel. Jewish people are open and willing to listen to Jesus Messiah of Israel and the world. The Gospel has outreach to Israel so all must obey the Holy Spirit’s leading to give to ministry. For “How shall they call on Him whom they have not believed. And how shall they believe in Him if they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent in Romans 10:14. Greater blessing come in giving to the Jews because God says all those who bless Israel are blessed. God promises a special blessing on all who bless the Chosen People. In Genesis 12:3, God Says, “I will bless those who bless you.” God blesses and causes His Prosperity to abound, so the fruit abounds to your account” in Philippians 4:17. So Favour with God is recorded for all done in the name of the Gospel for God’s people in Nehemiah 5:8. Helping God’s Vision to flourish to thrive by Christian believers for salvation is GOD’S Command to all.
