Christians, The Forgotten Israelites
This study written by Maurice Wright

In this study of Christians the forgotten Israelites, you will become a witness unto yourself how many Christians have allowed their true identity as New Testament Israel, to be literally stolen from them by some in the faith, who in spite of the text, continue to separate Godís people doctrinally. Yes, itís true, in time past the Gentile people without Christ were aliens from true citizenship in the nation of Israel (Ephesians 2:11-22). But now we have the cross of Christ sacrifice, that expresses Godís redemptive power to unite both the Hebrew and Gentile peoples under one family name ĎChristianí (Ephesians 3:14-15 & Acts 11:25-27). This family reunion was prophesied in the Old Testament when Jacobís name was changed to Israel. God made this change because Jacobís name represented the old covenant of the law, Israelís name represents the everlasting covenant of faith (Psalms 105:8-10 & 1 Chronicles 16:13-17).

Whenever prophecy is given in the scripture concerning Jacob by name, itís referring to Abrahamís natural seed (Deuteronomy 34:1-4 & Deuteronomy 9:24-29). Whenever prophecy is given in the scripture concerning Israel by name, itís referring to Christians Abrahamís spiritual seed (Exodus 32:13 - Joel 2:25-32 - Isaiah 49:7-8 - 2 Corinthians 6:1-2). Why is this information important for us to know? If you fail to realize your kingdomís status as New Testament Israelites, then you rob yourself of the rich blessing that God spoke over Abraham and his spiritual seed in Galatians 3:6-9 & Galatians 3:13-16. Havenít you always wondered that there was more to Godís word them you have been taught? Well, lets go the scripture to see if thatís true.

Genesis 32:27-28-And He said unto him, "What is thy name?" And he said, "Jacob." And He said, "Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed."

Jacob is the natural seed of Abraham according to the flesh:, Israel is the Spiritual Seed of Abraham in Jesus Christ. The patriarchís name was changed from Jacob to Israel because God looked past the natural seed line of the law and death unto the spiritual Seed line of faith and life. By making this name change from Jacob to Israel, God has fulfilled the promise which He spoke to Jeremiah concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah under the Old Covenant of the law becoming Christians under the New Covenant of faith in Jesus Christ (Hebrews 10:16-23).

Jeremiah 31:31-33-Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the days that I took them by the hand to bring them out of Egypt; which My covenant brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD. But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put My law in their inwards parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be My People.

The scripture above is quoted by the apostle Paul also verbatim in the book of Hebrews.
