He Loves All People – the Jew and the Gentile
Published by Deborah Negron – Child fo God.
For from the rising of the sun, even to its going down, My name shall be great among the Gentiles; In every place incense shall be offered to My name, And a pure offering; For My name shall be great among the nations” Says the Lord of hosts.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
He had chosen a people. Israel were the ones. But they did not dee His worth. They did not understand his purpose and his visitation. They had expected a warrior king. They wanted to overthrow Rome. They wanted to have rheir heads lifged high and their reproach gone.
Yet the Father had bigger plans. The Creator of the Universe had eternal plans. His plans were not exclusive. No their were far reaching and all inclusive.
The Father’s intention… the Father’s decision was not to cast away the work of his own hands. You see The Father sent the Son to liberate not only Israel, but all of thise who would choose to believe in His Only Begotten Son Jesus. Yeshua Hamashiah. Yes, Israel’s long awaited Messiah had come. But He did not come only for Israel. God sent his own Son Jesus to save humanity from the guilt and shame. God came and met us at our point of need. Israel was used to be the conduit of God’s Amazing Grace. Through that seed of Abraham, yes, that seed of David came the Messiah. Jesus came to reach bith the jew and the gentile. He came not only for the sons of Jacob but also for the sons of Esau.
God understood the waywardness of the heart. Yet He made a way to reach those far from him.
Today, He tells us, Repent. Turn away from sin and come to me all that are tired and weary and broken and undone. Come all you who have been let down and abandoned. Those who have been hurt or discarded. Those who have been ignored and rejected.
Come rich and come poor. Come those who are great and those who are small.
Come he says, Let us reason together…
Let me wipe away your tears and restore you to my Father’s heart.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
Matthew 7:7-8, 11
Jesus is the Father’s best gift for all. Jesus is the Saviour and the Lord of lords and King of kings.
He is giving you access to his mercy and his love. Won’t you come and meet Him today.
Won’t you come and be made anew.
He gave himself for us. Today is the day of salvation. Jesus will restire you and me to a right relationship with the Father.
His original plan was to save all people.
We read it clearly in Genesis 22
And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together. Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” So he said, “Here I am.” And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.” Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of the place, The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.” Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son— blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
For us God did provide the Lamb to take the punishment of our sin.
Jesus became the Lamb of God tbat takes the sin of those who come and accept his eternal gift.
Father Abraham was goven that promise.
In Jesus all the nations fo the world are blessed.
Salvation is of the jews and of the gentiles.
All people are precious to God. Regardless of ethnicity or race. All of us are called by God to accept the forgiveness of sin through the blood of Jesus His Son.
We can all come and be blessed.
Ask and you shall receive mercy and God’s love.
