Nowhere does it state in the Authorised King James Bible that if Israel (in times to come, under the New Testament Dispensation), if she believes how that Christ died for their sins, was buried and rose again in addition to doing/practising good works/keeping the law/commandments she WILL BE SAVED. In other words, Israel doesn’t have to believe that Christ died for their sins, was buried and rose again on the third day for her SALVATION.
Nowhere. If you believe it is so, please supply the Chapter and verse. Believers in times to come will confirm that their Messiah died on the cross and rose again on the 3rd day, but it is not what they need to believe for their SALVATION.
Much the same can be said concerning mainline denominationalism today, they believe that Christ died for their sins, was buried and rose again on the third day – and their celebration of Easter confirms this, BUT they don’t solely believe it in order to be saved, instead they also believe Israel’s doctrine and believe in Christ, believe on His name, they even profess to be “born-again”, do good works, change their lifestyles, etc, etc. Yes, mainline denominationalists believe in Christ – but they aren’t saved because they don’t believe the God-given doctrine/good news for their salvation that is in effect during this current dispensation
What New Testatment doctrine/Hebrew doctrine however does state for salvation in times to come is as follows :
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
In times to come, a person will have to believe that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, This is in line with 1 John 4:3 where it states that if one does not believe that Jesus is the Son of God, one is antichrist.
1 John 4:3 – And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
1 John 5:2 goes onto to state that believing that Christ is born of God is what will make people children of God, because when one states this and believes it, one loves God, in addition to keeping His commandments – look it up for yourself.
In 2 John chapter 1 it states that Israel will have to abide in the doctrine of Christ, and if they do not, they simply will not have God. Christ is the way to God, without Him they cannot be saved.
It is clear that in Matthew, Mark, Luke & John that the majority of Israel did not believe that Jesus was the Christ, the son of God. Hence the reason why the Apostle Paul had to first convince the Jews that Jesus was the son of God before he could preach the gospel of grace to them in order for them to be saved.
John 1:12 says as many RECEIVED HIM, to them He gave power to BECOME THE SONS OF GOD, even to them that believe ON HIS NAME.
John 3:15 – ……. that whosoever BELIEVETH IN HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Believeth in him.
Today, if we believeth in Him are we saved? No. Our good news is solely dependent in belief in His death (for our sins), burial and resurrection which justifies us in the eyes of God. His finished work on Calvary’s cross.
Israel’s Kingdom doctrine is different.
James 2:24 clearly states that a man is justified not only by faith alone, but by works too. Verse 25 corroborates this by giving Rahab as an example. Compare this to Romans 4 which is our doctrine for today. Justified by faith alone in Christ’s finished work on the cross alone.
Revelation 14:12 confirms that the faith of Christ (during the Millennium dispensation, of which the tribulation is a part of) + keeping God’s commands is what will save a person in the Millennium dispensation when the New Testament will come into effect.
Jesus said in John 3:3 that one needs to be born again to see the Kingdom of God, and He was speaking to the nation of Israel. Since Israel was rendered lo-ammi when she rejected and crucified her Messiah (lo-ammi : not God’s people), she as a nation needs to be born again – born of God by believing that Jesus is the son of God, the one sent by God to be her Messiah (King).
I used to be amongst the ignorant who believed that the Kingdom Gospel was belief in Christ’s death for sins, His burial and resurrection plus good works/keeping the law/God’s commands
The sheep/goats judgment at the end of the Tribulation is proof that unsaved people (nations) will enter the Millennial Kingdom. Not everyone who enters the Millennium dispensation (alive, in the flesh) will be saved, the same applies to those born into the Millennium dispensation, hence the reason why Israel will be the light world once again – bring salvation to the Gentile nations – which was God’s initial goal and purpose for the nation of Israel. The sheep nations are those that blessed Israel (the true Israel) during the tribulation.
The New Testament speaks of taking one’s sins to Christ and placing them on Him, the perfect sacrifice, confessing one’s sins to one another (1 John 1:9 & James 5:16), thus enduring to the end in order to be saved, that is, not giving up on one’s faith, unlike this current dispensation where we are already purified by belief in Christ’s death for our sins, His burial and resurrection and the only thing we need to endure is sound doctrine. (2 Timothy 4:3).
In this current dispensation we are saved the moment we have faith in Christ’s finished work on the cross, whereas in times to come, Israel will be saved if she endures to the end as she has to be refined like gold in the fire (tribulation) and be born-AGAIN. Again. It means she was initially born of God, chosen as His peculiar people, but she was set-aside along with her prophetic programme due to her unbelief/apostasy and thus needs to be : born again.
1 John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
(Author’s note : Those who profess to be born-again today have great difficulty in overcoming the world – one needs to ask oneself why).
5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
1 John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
So anyone who states that Israel’s Kingdom Gospel for their salvation incorporates believing how that Christ died for one’s sins, was buried and rose again on the third day is simply ignorant.
Israel’s Kingdom Gospel – good news –
It’s believing on the name of the Son of God.
It’s blessing the true Israel during the tribulation (as Rahab had done in times past).
It’s being justified not only by one’s faith, but also by one’s works.
It’s being born again.
It’s confessing one’s sins.
It’s confessing with one’s mouth that Jesus is the son of God, that He is Lord.
That’s quite different from what we have to believe to today in order to be saved, wouldn’t you agree?
Don’t always believe what you are told – not even me. Check it out for yourself.
What confuses people today, especially those who call themselves Right Dividers is how that mainline denominationalism believes in Christ’s death for their sins, His burial and resurrection on the 3rd day, yet they (denominationalists) aren’t saved – why? Simply because they don’t believe it solely for their salvation – instead they believe it + they believe on the name of the son of God (Hebrew doctrine) for their salvation, and they also believe that if they love God/Christ – they are saved, nto to mention repenting (of their sins) and being water baptised – which is not the good news for this current dispensation.
Like some ignorant Right Dividers deny the Gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, which is unique to this current dispensation, because they wrongly believe it’s also part of the Kingdom Gospel, which of course it isn’t. They make God the author of confusion because of their blatant ignorance. Christ is Israel’s perfect sacrifice, He replaced lambs, bulls and goats – one only has to read the book of Hebrews to realise this. Christ died for ALL men – but not ALL men have the same good news to believe in order to be saved. God will pick up with Israel at a future time, where He left off with them in the past – He will fulfill the promises He made to them, thus He could not give their doctrine or promises to Gentiles who weren’t part of Israel’s promises or covenants as that would mean He would be breaking His promises, hence the reason He gave us a whole new set of doctrine, as well as a new/different gospel in this current dispensation. Once God starts bringing Israel back into the fold (during the tribulation) a dispensational change will take place. *Welcome to the tribulation*.
Furthermore, I haven’t discussed the good works that need to be practised as a part of Israel’s Kingdom Gospel. One only needs to read the epistles of Peter to confirm these which need to be practised as per James 2:25.
