Q: What does the phrase Israel of God mean?

Israel of God refers to Jewish people who received Christ as their Savior and consequently belong to the church. It does not refer to the entire church. The phrase appears in Galatians 6: “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision...

  1. To David M Levy,
    re: the berean box, Israel my Glory, Mar-Apr 2018 issue
    Subj: What did Jesus mean “This generation …. (Mt 24:34)

    Keeping it simple, it would appear that the general use of a generation refers to a span of time i.e.: a nominal lifetime period, perhaps 70 or 80 years excluding exceptions
    (Psalms 90:10: The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they be eighty years, yet is their labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.).

    And considering the rebirth of the fig tree (Israel) on 14 May 1948 a generation would reasonably lead us to a period 2018 thru 2028 …. for significant things to take place!

    Furthermore, the biblical calendar of 7000 years, considering Christ’s triumphal return at 6 April 0033 would place His return in 2033, and thus seven year earlier brings us to the year 2025, right in the midst of the period 2018 thru 2028 ….

    The lesson my friend is that the Bible tells us that time is short, so strive for that narrow gate without delay, Amen.

    1. How can you give dates to these events considering the clear teaching of the Lord?.
      Where do you get the seven thousand years thing from?.

Upside Down

Surveying the current geopolitical landscape can give me a headache. The world is embroiled in a spiritual battle. Right is made to look wrong; wrong is made to look right; security threats loom large; and if we don’t keep our eyes on the Lord...

The Rapture

When the word Rapture is mentioned, responses differ. Some people know it refers to Christ coming to take the church to heaven. Others incorrectly associate the rapture with Christ’s Second Coming. Still others have no idea...

Gone?

Rapture, Antichrist, and Tribulation are words Josiah Hesse associates with his apocalyptic upbringing—an upbringing he says was built on “the urgency of avoiding hell.” In his article “Apocalyptic upbringing: how I recovered from...

When Is It?

Christ’s premillennial Second Coming to Earth is evident even from a casual reading of the Scriptures. The Bible, taken at face value, clearly states the Messiah will return to establish His worldwide, earthly Kingdom, headquartered in Jerusalem .

What We’re Spared

Think of the worst disasters in history. They’re nothing compared to what lies ahead—but not for the bride of Christ. “Husband Charged With Domestic Violence.” It’s an all-too-familiar headline. Sometimes the offender is a celebrity...
