A Demonstration by Default
Although Israel did not remain true to GOD in obedience, she has still been instructional providing Emblematic Scenarios for our learning purposes by;

– demonstrating how GOD arranges reward and blessings for obedience – how HE Loves and readily delivers on all Promises that brings Joy, Happiness, and Prosperity;

– and on the other hand, the penalty for disobedience by removing HIS hand of protection; in the case if Israel on these occasions various countries enslaved Israel and carried her away captive over the periods of her history for the time GOD ordained for her chastisement, after countless warnings. During the periods of chastisement, GOD always retained a Remnant of Israel to carry the distinct blood line for the Messiah to keep HIS promise to Abraham and to carry out HIS future plans for HIS people.
2Ch 30:6  So the posts went with the letters from the king and his princes throughout all Israel and Judah, and according to the commandment of the king, saying, Ye children of Israel, turn again unto the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and he will return to the remnant of you, that are escaped out of the hand of the kings of Assyria.

As an Emblem, Israel resembles the World behavior; our own self Will, our desire to go our own way instead of following GOD’S Will in our lives, on HIS Planet, and in HIS World. Captivity in Egypt was slavery and so is being in bondage to sin. When a person sins (disobeying GOD’S Commandments) a person serves sin and when a person serves sin they serve Satan and his Kingdom. See – Which Kingdom Do You Serve? and You Must Choose in other segments of the Kingdom of Light Series on this Blog. Israel is to the World what the World is to the Angels in Heaven.

Isa_53:6  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
1Pe 1:12  Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

When we look at Israel, its history and interaction with the Living GOD, we may learn how GOD manages Love and obedience, how HE truly rewards HIS Children not just as a merit or demerit system but as a natural execution of HIS Will. When we study GOD’S WILL, a Exposition in this Blog, we shall see how Good and Holy are natural and when Good and Holy are the norm, all benefit from the perceived “highest to the lowest”.

When we consider the WAYS of GOD, without the intervening or rather disruption of Mankind we see perfect balance. Titles and labels are unnecessary except for those individuals that prefer such a system where they could have more and more is supposed to be better and better means most and best. But as you read you can see how this is turning to imbalance. For someone to have more the Laws of economy dictate someone must have less. Of course this is carnal thnking which have no place in the Kingdom of Light, which is evident in the teaching of CHRIST, which delivers us from corruption, vain selfish thinking, acting, and Being.

The Promised Seed Incarnated
As we have read in Genesis 3:15, in the Garden of Eden, the message of the “promised seed” was ordained to come forth at the beginning of the World. After Mankind fell out of the Will of GOD, the Grand Design emerged from the Divine Plan of GOD and the Grand Design of Separation was announced.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

The Divine Plan and the Grand Design will be discussed in a series in the Blog – GOD’S DIVINE COSMIC LAW C 6 coming soon. If you have not registered before but would like to receive notification by e-mail when the series goes to press, follow this link and select REGISTER ME on the side panel.

This separation is between the two Kingdoms (seed) on Earth. See the HUMAN SEED in the Resurrection Blog. GOD promised to send a Savior into the World to save it from the Spiritual Darkness which has engulfed the minds and hearts of Mankind, stemming from the disobedience of the progenitors of Mankind (Adam & Eve). The complete Biblical narrative may be read in the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament. An exposition may be found at the Blog YOUR SPIRIT/ADAM & EVE.

Prophecy Fulfilled
Luk 4:18  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

GOD sent HIS Son, JESUS CHRIST to Earth to give Israel (and all those who heard HIS message) an opportunity to repent and return to GOD in the person of the promised Messiah, CHRIST JESUS. HE did not speak only to the aristocratic class of the Rabbi, Priest, Scribe, or Ruler of the people, although HE did not neglect delivery of the message to them either.

HE often accepted invitations to speak to them. HE spoke to everyone who would listen; the rich, the poor; on the mountainside, on the hills, and on the lake, sharing the message of the Gospel of GOD and the Gospel of Heaven, proclaiming that HE was sent by HIS FATHER to do HIS Will. Gentiles who heard of HIM also sought HIM for Mercy and HE ministered to them as well.

Joh 12:49  For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

The Curse of the Fig Tree depicts the period of the Ministry of CHRIST and Israel’s fatal rejection of her Messiah. Another segment in this series, CHRIST – Ruler of the Kingdom of Light – The Church, depicts the beginning of the Church Age which began with the Jews who are of the remnant of Israel.

CHRIST has risen to HIS Exaltation and HIS Throne on the right side of GOD, a position of Authority and Power. HE has gone to prepare a place for HIS people.
