You speak for the rebellious house of Israel, the circumcised in flesh but not in heart. You speak for them and say to the Ishmaelites “We are both the sons of Abraham. My people call him Avraham. Your people call him Ibrahim. We share the same patriarch. Our destinies are intertwined.”
Woe to you arrogant stick-necked people! To this very day you foolishly put your faith in flesh and blood just as your forefather did! Do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God is able to raise up children of Abraham from stones! And indeed he has and continues to fulfill this mystery. For those who have faith in the Anointed Son are made into living stones, being built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through His Son; the Messiah, Jesus, Yeshua, Emmanuel. He came to His own, and His own people did not receive Him. But to all who do receive Him, who believed in His name, He gives them the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see the day of the Anointed Son. He saw it and was glad. You say “Abraham is our father.” But if you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did. What you are doing is not what Abraham did. You are not doing the works of the Father but the works of the father of lies. You stubborn people, uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so do you.
You are right in that the destines of you and your wild ass of a brother Ishmael are intertwined for you both rebel against the King of Zion anointed by God Himself. Behold, even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees of both brothers. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance. For the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel of God’s favor(grace) in the Anointed Son.
The flesh counts for nothing, NOTHING! For by the flesh you try to keep the law but break it. He that breaks one law breaks them all. Or do you think because you are Jews you are any better off than the people of the nations? No, not at all. For we…ALL are under sin, as it is written:
"None is righteous, no, not one;
no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one."
"Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive."
"The venom of asps is under their lips."
"Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness."
"Their feet are swift to shed blood;
in their paths are ruin and misery,
and the way of peace they have not known."
"There is no fear of God before their eyes."
Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, for no man is able to keep the entire law by his own flesh and works. For by the law comes the knowledge of sin and no man is able to abstain entirely from sin in thought and action by his own will.
The good news, the gospel is this; now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for ALL who believe! For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, yet because of God steadfast love, He offers to all justification by His favor as a GIFT, through the redemption that is in His Anointed Son, Jesus/Yeshua, whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith. Through His blood, all sin is ransomed. He is the chosen Lamb of God who takes away all the sins of the world. Therefore it is by faith in the Anointed that the just are to live, neither by sight nor by flesh and works of the flesh, but by faith. This is to show God’s righteousness because in His divine forbearance He had passed over former sins of all those who where under the law. For the one who works, his wages are not reckoned as a gift but as his due yet men in their works to keep the entire law fail and are owned nothing but death. For the wages of sin is death. And the soul who sins shall die. But to the one who does not work, he who does not try to earn, merit or deserve God's gift but instead trusts in Him who justifies the ungodly, such a person’s faith is reckoned as righteousness. The good news is that there is free acquittal for the guilty that stop trying to work for their salvation and stop attempting to impress God and men but instead rest in the Anointed Son who conquers sin and death and imparts righteousness. God’s work through His Son reveals His righteousness in this present time, showing that in His desire that ALL be saved, He is just, showing no partiality or favoritism for He is the justifier of anyone who has faith in His Beloved Son. For it is by the sovereign favor of God that we are saved through faith. And this is not our own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. What boast is there in Abraham being your father when you disobey the Laws of His God and sin against His throne?
Is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of the Nations of the world also? Is the not the God of all the countries in North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and all the Island nations? Yes, of all peoples and all tongues, since God is one—who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. For by and through faith we all, Jews and the Nations, upload the law. The law is not abolished by faith but fulfilled.
Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by God’s favor and not the works of men to keep the written law, to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all.
Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham.
And if you are the Messiah’s, then you are Abraham's offspring,
heirs according to promise.
“If you, Israel, will return,
then return to me,”
declares the LORD.
“If you put your detestable idols out of my sight
and no longer go astray,
and if in a truthful, just and righteous way
you swear, ‘As surely as the LORD lives,’
then the nations will invoke blessings by him
and in him they will boast.”
This is what the LORD says to the people of Judah and to Jerusalem:
“Break up your unplowed ground
and do not sow among thorns.
Circumcise yourselves to the LORD,
circumcise your hearts,
you people of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem,
or my wrath will flare up and burn like fire
because of the evil you have done—
burn with no one to quench it.
‘Sound the trumpet throughout the land!’
Cry aloud and say:
Let us flee to the fortified cities!’
Raise the signal to go to Zion!
Flee for safety without delay!
For I am bringing disaster from the north,
even terrible destruction.”
