Welcoming the Angel of Truth
A 2-part dissertation by Milo (full name known to me) on May 22, 2008,
in answer to my e-mail letter of that same day,
“Eye opening Obama video.”[c]
Milo is a brother in the Lord whose beliefs are representative of most Christians, whether born-again and Spirit-filled, or traditional denominational. These beliefs are based on almost 2 Millennia of Gentile Christianity teaching, increasingly removed from the original teachings of the Jewish apostles and ever more misinterpreted, just as the apostles Peter and Paul had warned 
In 1982 the Lord spoke to me by Isaiah 41:15-16, saying that I would be like a threshing instrument and a winnowing fork in His hands by which He would “thresh” the mountains of erroneous teachings accumulated throughout the centuries, and crush the hills of man’s religious traditions, turning them into “chaff”. The proud, arrogant, haughty and conceited would “winnow” themselves. He was going to set my heart on fire for G-d’s Truth with love that would not tolerate the least digression. At last, His Spirit would carry away these falsehoods and religious traditions invented by man and scatter them irretrievably with the hurricane of His judgment.
Thus, He used me to teach on the converted Gentiles relationship to literal, restored Israel; the role this nation plays in His plan of salvation; and what had to be ready on earth before the Lord Yeshua’s Return.
The teachings and prophecies He gave me proved all too challenging for a doctrine established through almost two Millennia. Invariably I and the teachings were eventually dismissed as “false,” although having been first recognized as speaking the Truth from G-d, and sent by Him. Since people dislike being taken out of their comfort zone by teachings demanding change, people ceased to invite me to speak.
For many years I taught these specific truths in obedience to the Lord who desires to spare His saints the profound deception Satan has woven across the globe like a spider his net. Yeshua Himself had warned that the nature of the charade would be such that if possible, even the elect would be deceived .
“I want you to teach again on who and what Israel is in my ultimate plan of salvation,” the Lord would frequently say to me. “Explain again the difference between restoration and recreation; how the Gentile, by nature a wild olive tree is by faith in Yeshua engrafted among My people into their tree to partake of both the rich Abrahamic root and their destiny. Remind them, therefore, not to be arrogant toward the Jewish people, for it is the Jewish root that supports him (and not the converted Gentile who supports the root). Most have still not grasped these truths and are in danger of losing their place and their crown if swept off the path of life by the coming deception.”
Far be it for me to suggest that my brother Milo is lost, that He does not believe in Yeshua being the Savior, the Son of G-d for he undoubtedly holds these truths in accordance with the Gospel. However, he simultaneously embraces certain misunderstandings and misinterpretations delivered down through the centuries. Clinging to them may cause him to miss the mark.

What Christians Believe
[Milo writing:] Hi,
About God’s judgment of the USA… God is looking for the increase of Christ in a people. [My comment: TRUE]. His church is not made up of nations but of people [My comment: partially true + false. His redeeemed are from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues – Rev.7:9]. 2000+ years ago, His punishment of the nation of Israel, and other nations who disobeyed Him had to do with drawing a people unto Himself inside the covenant with Israel [My comment: True].
God’s judgment of the entire Adamic race happened at the cross [My comment: False]. Once that was done, there was no more 1st Covenant [My comment: False. Jews who do not believe in Yeshua are still under the Old Covenant. Furthermore, Yeshua did not abolish the other covenants nor the Tenach, meaning Torah, the Prophets and the Writings. All of this is still in force – Matt. 5:1719 – until ALL has been accomplished, which will be with the new heaven and earth]. It was fulfilled in the Second Covenant which was placed in the hearts of those who would believe. Death had been judged and put away [My comment: True]. Judgment does not mean punishment, it means separating the old from the new, the 1st covenant from the second… [My comment: True] separating all that is of Christ from all that is not of Christ, since Christ is “all and in all” and everything that means anything was settled at the cross – in Christ [My comment: True].
God dealt with governments during the Old Testament times in a different fashion than He does now [My comment: False. G-d has not changed, nor have His laws]. Everything was type and shadow pointing to the Day the day that Christ would come on the scene [My comment: True] and the cross would free mankind of the law [My comment: Would free the Jew, NOT mankind, as the Gentiles never received the Law and hence were not under its rule] and of the fallen-ness that Adam could not escape [My comment: True]. “For I (my old Adam nature – ) have been crucified with Christ, and I live, yet it is not I who live, but Christ who lives in me…” [My comment: True. However, all of the “Goyim/Gentiles” are NOT of the “Adamic” race but of the one called “Enosh” – Ps 9:19-20. G-d separated the race of Adam of whom Abraham was the last from the rest of mankind when Lot separated from Abraham. G-d chose Abraham to be the father of a new race of “Adam,” the House of Israel, and of every Gentile who through faith in the Messiah of Israel has been engrafted into that race, that “goodly, cultivated olive tree” – Ro 11:24. Ultimately there will be the final and true Adamic race, raised up through Messiah, the Last “Adam” – 1 Cor. 15:45-49].
We (the entire human race) have already been judged [My comment: False]. People, individually, either belong to Christ, or they do not [My comment: True]. The Cross is the sword unlike no other! [My comment: True] Any further judgment in addition to the cross would be anticlimactic and would diminish what Christ did [My comment: False] to bring about the end of the old race and the beginning of the new race where there is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female…. [My comment: True]
Milo (full name given)
Sometime I’d love to talk about the “Land of Israel” with you.
God said “Israel is my son.” The people were chosen by God — but the geography was only a place for them to live [My comment: False]. Anything it had that connected to the sacred relationship that Jews had with God changed at the cross when all the prophesies were fulfilled [My comment: False. Not ALL of the prophecies have been as yet fulfilled].
Geography was included in things of the covenant of Moses that gets fulfilled through the cross [My comment: False; strange idea that G-d relinquished the Land He calls His OWN at the cross. It would not matter then, if the Land gets divided up, and given away. And Yeshua could always return to Kimbuktu, couldn’t He? Even though there won’t be his people as a sovereign nation, nor Jerusalem, nor the throne of David. Yeshua does not remain in heaven but will return to earth to rule from Jerusalem over the nations with an iron rod. Hence the “geography” concerning the Land of Israel has not been abolished by the cross] and in the new covenant there is not Jew and Greek separation [My comment: True]. I know that I am saying something you already know… but there is no longer a separate old covenant with the Jews [My comment: as I already said, for the Jew outside of Messiah Yeshua the Old covenant is still in force; he is stil UNDER the Law and will be judged by it] and also a new covenant with Christians [My comment: True, except that the New Covenant was also made only with and for the House of Israel; yet believing Gentiles through faith are joined into that New Covenant and become simultaneously fellow-citizens and co-heirs with Israel, for by means of this New Covenant both believing Jew and Gentile have become ONE NEW man in Messiah]. The old was never to be anything beyond that which would point to Messiah [My comment: True +False].
The only covenant that exists is the new covenant [My comment: False]. You remember that the Jews got upset when Jesus himself said that He was the only way to the Father. That is still true [My comment: for one who would be a CHILD of G-d].
Milo (full name given)
Although much of what Milo says is true, fallacies of the early Gentile church which are accepted as truth even to this day darken his understanding. And because such a vast multitude believe these doctrines, the truth is regarded as error.
In the epistle to the Romans, Paul wrote this concerning the Jews: “They are Israelites, and to THEM belong the sonship, the glory, THE COVENANTS, the giving of Torah, the worship, and the PROMISES; to THEM belong the patriarchs and of THEIR race, according to the flesh, is the Messiah. G-d Who is over ALL be blessed forever. Amen.”
In the epistle to the Ephesians he wrote: “… REMEMBER that YOU were at that time, formerly, separated from Messiah, alienated from the Commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the COVENANTS OF PROMISE, having no hope and without G-d in the world.”
What is widely overlooked by most Christians is that G-d made MORE than one Covenant with His people Israel. The OLD covenant was a BLOOD covenant, as is the NEW covenant: a BLOOD covenant our Lord Yeshua instituted by the shedding of His blood!
The FIRST, or OLD blood covenant is recorded in Exodus 24:7-8:
“And he [Moses] took the book of the covenant [Torah], and read in the audience of the people: and they said, ‘All that the L-RD has said will we do, and be obedient.’
“And Moses took the blood and sprinkled it ON THE PEOPLE and said, ‘Behold, the BLOOD OF THE COVENANT, which the L-RD has made with you concerning all these words.”
THIS is what the Scriptures refer to as the “Old” covenant.
Most Christians, however, understand this to mean that all of the Mosaic dispensation is obsolete, no longer valid and no longer in force.
This is false!
The First blood covenant was based on keeping the Law (which is called “Torah – The Teachings of the Commandments of G-d”), and ratified with the sprinkling of animal blood which could neither redeem from the power of sin and death nor cleanse one’s conscience.
The Second and New blood Covenant is based on FAITH in MESSIAH YESHUA’S blood which obliterates the foundation of the first and old Blood Covenant and thereby changes everything. For what the First blood covenant could not achieve with animal blood, the Second covenant fully achieves with Yeshua’s blood:
• It atones for sin;
• redeems from the first sin in the Garden, and from Satan’s control held over mankind ever since;
• it delivers the believer from the power of sin and death;
• it cleanses the conscience of the former sinner, as he repents;
• it is the source of recreation by which G-d transforms the sinner into a new man, a child of G-d, the
former, sinful nature being “circumcised” by the circumcision of Messiah in baptism.
Whereas the Old Covenant was founded upon WORKS – the keeping of the Law or Torah to perfection, the New covenant is founded upon FAITH – faith in Yeshua’s atoning death, in His resurrection and ascension. Hence, FAITH in YESHUA’S BLOOD redeems us from TRANSGRESSIONS of the Law of Torah.
It is the FOUNDATION and the BLOOD of the Old covenant that have changed – but NOT the standard of righteousness, justice and holiness as embodied in Torah according to which we are meant to conduct our daily affairs.
Torah has never been abolished!!! Isaiah and Micah the prophets declare that in the Messianic Reign
“… out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the Word of the L-RD from Jerusalem.” The word for “Law” is Torah. Are they wrong?.
5 Ro 9:4-5 6 Eph. 2:12 7 Col. 2:11-12; Heb. 2:14-15; 2 Cor. 5:17 8 Isa. 2:2-3; Mic 4:1-2
Messiah Yeshua abolished neither Torah nor the Prophets
Yeshua Himself taught in the Sermon on the Mount that He came not to abolish the Law/Torah and the prophets but rather fulfill them. He stated that it was easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for a single vowel sign (the dots and tittles of the Hebrew vowels) from the Law/Torah until ALL is accomplished.
And ALL will be accomplished only once the new heaven and new earth come into existence. Until then “the love of G-d is to keep His commandments” as specified in the Ten commandments and expounded/expanded on in Torah stands. Yeshua cautioned that anyone who relaxes one of the least of these commandments [of G-d] and teaches [Jewish] men so, shall be called least in the Kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the Kingdom of heaven.”
Note that Yeshua addressed the Jews in this sermon, NOT the Gentiles, for this first blood covenant of the keeping of the Law pertained only to the House of Israel and not the Gentiles.
When some Jewish believers demanded that the new Gentile converts be circumcised and keep all of the Law, the Jerusalem conference was called to address this issue. The decisions taken were as follows:
“….it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, the Jerusalem assembly and the apostles to lay no greater burden upon the Gentile converts than these necessary things:
• To abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols;
• To abstain from drinking or eating blood;
• To abstain from what is strangled [i.e. put to death in a way that causes the creature to suffer and
to release a secretion into the bloodstream harmful to human consumption; furthermore, Adam became a living soul when G-d breathed into his nostrils; ever since the life is in the blood, it may not be strangled]
• To abstain from fornication.
Just as those Jewish legalistic believers misinterpreted the changes of the New Covenant, so did the early Gentile Christian church fathers likewise misunderstand. They failed to see the change in the FOUNDATION of the blood covenant; that the FOUNDATION was no longer works of the law but FAITH IN YESHUA for, “…no other foundation can any man lay than the one which is laid, which is Yeshua HaMashiach.”
The early Gentile church fathers wrongly taught that Yeshua had abolished all of the Mosaic Law in the New Covenant. Hence, any convert, whether Jewish or Gentile, who delighted in G-d’s commandments and endeavored to observe them was accused of being “under the Law”.
Eventually, the early church went so far as to make the keeping of Torah, i.e. the Law of Moses, punishable by death and in later years, beginning with the Crusaders, forced the Jews to convert to their Gentile Christianity and constrained them, in writing, to relinquish any relationship to the Jewish people and Torah.
In other words, the Church did all in its power to cut the Jew off from his own, cultivated olive tree and graft him into its wild olive tree – precisely opposite to G-d’s plan of salvation. Satan was doing all he could to foil G-d’s plan.
The above gross misinterpretation shows that the Church had failed and still fails to understand the connection between Torah, the Jews and Yeshua; that Torah applied to the Jew alone, the Gentile having no business with it, and that Yeshua HAD NEVER ANNULLED the laws of Torah which pertained only to the Jew.
Apart from the Noahic covenant, G-d had never covenanted with the Gentiles. Therefore the Gentiles never did suffer the consequences of transgression as did the Jews.
Orthodox Jews outside of Yeshua still base their righteousness on keeping Torah along with additional regulations added by Jewish sages throughout the centuries. The orthodox Jews still have a “merit” system of works by which they may gain G-d’s favor, blessings, prosperity, healing, etc.
The Gentile outside of Yeshua, on the other hand, is without hope and G-d in the world. Therefore he is commanded to REMEMBER from whence he was brought and from what he was delivered.
Indeed, Gentiles may join Israel but Israel may never join the Gentiles.
Yeshua Himself said that HIS yoke is easy in contrast to the Law whose yoke is hard. It was the House of Israel who accepted the heavy yoke of the Law, not a Gentile nation. Yeshua came to free the House of Israel from that heavy yoke.
But G-d did not abolish His good commandments (extolled in Psalm 119); they are His standard of righteousness by which we are to conduct our daily lives while NO LONGER UNDER THE CURSE OF THE LAW!! The curse was part of the foundation of the Old, First blood covenant.
G-d’s Kingdom is not a Kingdom of lawlessness. Rather, Torah and the Word of G-d remain in effect as standard of righteousness, justice and holiness.
9 Matt. 5:17-19 10 1 Jn 2:3-4; 3:22; 5:2-4 11 Matt. 5:19 12 1 Cor. 3:11 13 Acts 15:28-29 14 Eph. 2:12 15 Isa. 2:4; Mic. 4:2
God’s First Covenant was with Abraham to Separate a People unto Himself
Moreover, what is generally overlooked by many Christian teachers is the fact that there are SEVERAL covenants!
1. The first covenant is G-d’s covenant with Abraham in order to create a people unto Himself, of
which circumcision is the SIGN.
2. The second covenant is the inheritance of a land, a literal geographical area, made irrevocable by a
3. The third covenant is the one known as the “old testament” and is based on Torah. This is the first
blood covenant for it was ratified by Moses with the sprinkling of animal blood on the people.
4. The fourth covenant is with King David, irrevocably established with G-d’s oath by His own holiness,
that David’s throne shall endure forever, with a Son of His loins sitting on it, and that David’s line,
house, children would continue before the L-RD.
5. The fifth covenant is the one known as the “new testament”. This new, second blood covenant was
instituted by Yeshua in His own blood. The blood of Messiah effectively annulled the “animal blood”
foundation of the first covenant as well as the lordship of Torah.
G-d’s plan with the first covenant was to call forth a people who would be His own people. They would be His people and He would be their G-d. Through this people and by this covenant, G-d created a “root” – called “Sion”[ Y ] – which would give rise to a new, cultivated olive tree whose purpose was to conceive a new race of man, immortal, no longer subject to the law of sin and death.
This first covenant in effect created “a womb”, Israel, for the Promised Seed of salvation, G-d’s own Son, Yeshua the Messiah. At the appointed time, G-d sent His Promised Seed into this “womb” prepared within the righteous parameters of Torah.
G-d’s Seed appeared within this “womb” as the Anointed One, the awaited Savior of G-d’s people. The Body of this Seed would likewise grow inside this womb as believing Jews and Gentiles were grafted into it. Like an embryo grows in its mother’s womb so does the Body of Messiah grow inside Israel until full “gestation” or growth has been reached. When the time of birth comes, the womb will begin to contract.
It is obvious to all that the womb – Israel – has entered into her birth pangs.
The “sign” of this covenant signals the immortal, eternal nature of Abraham’s ultimate descendants who will walk in the “circumcision of Messiah” as a new creation through faith and baptism, the former nature of mortal, sinful flesh having been “circumcised”.
The circumcision of this covenant is on that body organ which emits the “seed” and furthermore takes place on the 8th day, which points to a new beginning – Bereshit/Genesis III – of a new heaven and earth, to be inhabited by a new race of immortal men who are neither Jew nor Gentile but the true seed of Abraham still called “Israel.”
After Abraham “sowed” the promised “seed”, his son Isaac of supernatural birth, into G-d’s promise of making him the father of a multitude, G-d confirmed the covenant concerning Abraham’s descendants with an oath, which altered the covenant made in the flesh into an ETERNAL one. The fulfillment of this covenant is Messiah, that Promised Seed of supernatural birth, in Whom the sinful nature is discarded through baptism as is the foreskin in circumcision. For the “old” man shall not inherit in the Kingdom of G-d.
The second covenant G-d made with Abraham, also called through Isaac and Jacob, was the promise of Land inheritance upon entrance into Canaan. This covenant was confirmed with G-d’s OATH. While the first covenant was conditional upon Abraham’s performance, this second one had no such terms.
This covenant of promised land G-d sealed with heavenly fire and a pot of glowing, smoking coals from G-d’s heavenly altar. This “geographical” area termed “My Own Land” by G-d stretches from the great river Euphrates to the Egyptian river, the Nile.
The cross has not abolished this covenant. Scripture labels this “geographical” area also “the pastures of G-d” Who has not by any means relinquished them: Judea is His “Sceptre,” and Samaria alias Ephraim His “helmet.” Furthermore, G-d has spoken by His holiness that “with exultation He will divide up Shechem,” which is known today as the “Palestinian” town of Nablus; “and portion out the Vale of Succoth,” which is the large valley surrounding and running from Shechem and the hills where Jacob and all his household had encamped, and from where one could see the Tabernacle at Shiloh.
G-d caused His Land to have a Sabbatical of almost two millennia, with the rightful heirs of the Land scattered abroad among the nations. But He also promised in numerous Scriptures that He would bring the literal, natural descendants of Jacob, the offspring of Israel BACK into their OWN Land.
This Land is like a “tithe” from the whole earth, which G-d separated unto Himself to be His own possession. He repeatedly refers to it as “My” Land, “My OWN” Land, and that He has given it to Jacob and his descendants after him as an everlasting possession. Hence, it is THEIR OWN LAND.
The salvation of G-d is more than stated by Milo, for whom all comes to a climax at the cross. For while the cross obliterates the Old blood covenant based on the works of the Law; brings to an end the system of atonement through animal sacrifice and the power of the devil over sin and death, it signals the BEGINNING – Bereshit/Genesis II – of G-d’s new creation.
Yeshua’s shout from the cross, “IT IS FINISHED!”, indicated that the first phase of what G-d the Father was raising up was accomplished. The completion of the second phase is announced with another “It is finished!” following the 7th bowl of divine judgment of this present age and the Babylonic system. A third “It is done!” is uttered after the second resurrection and the great white throne judgment when the new heaven, i.e. another galaxy with a new earth will have materialized, the old Milky Way spiral having rolled up with a terribly loud noise and gigantic flames into an extremely dense, immeasurably heavy, mere “spot”.
This will be the time when ALL shall have been accomplished.
G-d judged sin on the cross, nailed the lordship of the old blood bond with its legal demands and curses to it, and by it stripped the devil of his power, which is death. By the cross G-d disarmed the principalties and powers, making a public spectacle of them and triumphing over them. On the cross Yeshua atoned for sin and died unto sin, delivering whosoever believes on Him from the power of sin. The Son of G-d came to destroy all the works of the evil one and this He accomplished on the cross for whosoever receives Him.
Those who believe not remain in the power of the devil, subject to sin and death and the judgment of the Great White Throne. The victory of the cross does not benefit them.
Y The word for root is always written as “Sion.” Mt. Zion is spelled as Mt. Sion as well, depending on the language. Zion usually refers to Jerusalem alone because Mt. Zion is part of her; but in some Scriptures it refers to all of Israel and her 12 tribes. For the root of the olive tree to have the same name as the city G-d has chosen for Himself would seem to be more than mere coincidence. 16 Genesis 17:1-14, 19-21 17 Romans 11:24 – “engrafted” by faith and baptism INTO Yeshua, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (for G-d is ONE united G-d and not 3 gods – Eph. 4:4-6) which is total submersion into a body of crystal-clear, “living”, that is moving water, either in a mikve, a creek or river, or swimming pool. The stagnant water of a “baptismal” only stand for death, without the resurrection. 18 Genesis 22:16-18; Hebrews 6:13-18 19 1 Corinthians 15:50; Colossians 2:11-12 20 Gen. 12:7; 13:14-17; 15:7, 18-21; 35:12 21 Gen. 15:17-21; Ps 105:8-11 22 Psalm 83:12 23 Ecstasy, joy, delight, euphoria, jubilation, excitement 24 Ps 60:(6)7-8; 108:(7)8-9; Gen. 3:18-19 (Josh. 18:1) 25 John 19:30; Revelation 16:17; 21:6 26 Isaiah 34:4; 2 Peter 3:10-13; Rev. 6:14 27 Heb. 2:14-15 28 Col.2:14-15 29 Romans 6:1-11 30 1 John 3:8 31Correct water baptism is not the mere sprinkling with water; it is a BURIAL! One does not bury a corpse by merely sprinkling it with a few handful of earth. We bury the dead 6 feet under the earth. Water baptism into Messiah is a participation in His DEATH, BURIAL, a BURIAL of the Old , sinful man, as well as a participation in Messiah’s RESURRECTION, as a new creation, a child of G-d. Hence the required in and outlet in the mikve/baptismal. 32 1 John 5:8 32 x U John 14:6
Salvation is of the Jews
However, neither the judgment of the nations nor the judgment of mankind was accomplished on the cross. Milo fails to understand the words that Yeshua was sent “only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel;” and that “salvation is of the Jews.” [a]
All who are NOT in Messiah are “…separated from Him, alienated from the Commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without G-d in the world.” 
They remain branches of the “wild olive tree” and are not members of the “Adamic race,” as Milo believes. The Psalmist pleads with G-d in Psalm 9 about the plotting of the nations, crying, “Arise, O L-RD! Let not ENOSH – or man – prevail; let the nations – or Gentiles/goyim – be judged before you! Put them in fear, O L-RD! Let the nations – Gentiles – know that they are but ENOSH!”[b]
The Abrahamic covenant separating him and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob from the Enosh-mankind unto G-d; the covenant regarding the inheritance of the Land; the covenant of the Promised Land; the First blood covenant based on the keeping of the Law abolished by the New blood covenant based on faith; and the covenant with King David that was established with an oath, are ALL covenants made with Israel, who is still of the Adamic race. The Gentiles have no part in any of these unless they are brought near by the blood of Messiah, cut off from the wild olive tree “Enosh” and grafted into the cultivated olive tree of “Adamic” race, Israel, the root – Sion – of which is the Abrahamic covenant.
Milo writes, “Any further judgment in addition to the cross would be anticlimactic and would diminish what Christ did to bring about the end of the old race and the beginning of the new race where there is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female……..”
Although in Messiah there is indeed no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female when standing in the Presence of G-d, certain rules still apply as long as the believer lives here on earth in an unredeemed mortal body of sinful flesh.
The judgment on the nations is separate from the cross. It pertains to having divided up G-d’s OWN land , displaced many of its Jewish citizens, and wanting to make Jerusalem the capital of an alien people. G-d’s purpose is to gather these nations into the valley of Yehosaphat to bring down on their heads their own schemes, as is written: “The nations have sunk in the pit which they made [for Israel]; in the net which they hid [to catch G-d’s nation] has their own foot been caught.”
“… God said ‘Israel is my son.’ The people were chosen by God — but the geography was only a place for them to live. Anything it had that connected to the sacred relationship that Jews had with God changed at the cross when all the prophesies were fulfilled.”
“Geography was included in things of the covenant of Moses that gets fulfilled through the cross and in the new covenant there is not Jew and Greek separation. I know that I am saying something you already know… but there is no longer a separate old covenant with the Jews and also a new covenant with Christians. The old was never to be anything beyond that which would point to Messiah.”
“The only covenant that exists is the new covenant.”
Furthermore, “The L-RD has made Himself known, He has executed judgment; the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands.” Wherefore the Lord counsels the kings and rulers of the earth who conspire against Him and His Anointed (both Messiah and nation) to be wise and heed the warning, lest His wrath is quickly kindled and they perish in the way.
Hence, if the geography where about 5.5 million Jews live today in the sovereign State of Israel, has no longer any significance because it was “only a shadow and type” that was fulfilled at the cross, then where would Milo say that the Lord Yeshua will return to?
The L-RD declared already 3,000 years ago, “I have set My King on Zion, My holy hill.”
Will Yeshua return to an unspecified geographical area bereft of the throne of David? Not according to G-d’s promises. His foot shall touch down on the Mt. of Olives, causing it to split apart with the underground water gushing forth toward the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean.
The covenant regarding the Land and the covenant with King David have yet to be fulfilled: Israel’s borders must extend to the Euphrates and the Nile; the literal descendants of the House of David must be presented to the Jewish people and the world; and David’s son, King Yeshua, must sit upon the Throne of David.
G-d promises in Jeremiah that “Fields shall be bought in this land of which you are saying, It is a desolation, without man or beast… Fields shall be bought for money, and deeds shall be signed and sealed and witnessed… for I will RESTORE their fortunes, says the L-RD.”
And so it is: fields, orchards, vineyards, parks and forests grace the Land of Israel, new settlements, towns and cities, a modern, sophisticated infrastructure. What’s more, fairy-tale like weddings, joyful Bar-Mitzvahs, children playing in the streets and old people enjoying their retirement are all prophecies of Jeremiah come true.
33 Mt 15:24; Jn 4:22 34 Eph. 2:1-12 35 Joel 3:1-3, 9-16 36 Ps 9:15-16 37 Psalm 2:10-11 38 Zechariah 14:4, 8 39Jer. 32:43-44; 33:7-13
Israel Continues to be a Nation Before God Forever
The Jews have NOT ceased to be G-d’s own Covenant people, for He says:
“… the L-RD Who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and stars for light by night, Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar – the L-RD of hosts is His Name: if this fixed order departs from before Me, says the L-RD, then shall the descendants of Israel cease from being a nation before me for ever.”
“Thus says the L-RD: ‘If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be explored, THEN I will cast off all the descendants of Israel for all that they have done…”
Again the Lord speaks by Jeremiah, “Thus says the L-RD: If you can break my covenant with the day and my covenant with the night, so that day and night will not come at their appointed time, THEN also my covenant with David my servant may be broken, so that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne, and my covenant with the Levitical priests my ministers…”
“Have you not observed what these people are saying (mostly Gentile Christianity throughout nearly two millennia: the Roman Cath. Church and many Protestant denominations): ‘The L-RD has rejected the two families which He chose’? Thus they have despised MY people so that they are no longer a nation in their sight.”
However, “Thus says the L-RD: If I have not established My covenant with day and night, and the ordinances of heaven and earth, THEN I will reject the descendants of Jacob and David My servant and will not choose one of his descendants to rule over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. For I WILL RESTORE their fortunes, and will have mercy upon them.”
We all can avow that day and night still come at their appointed time and that the fixed order of the sun, the moon and the stars has not ceased and therefore Israel continues to be a nation before God forever.
In the day of Jacob’s calamity, in the time of his final punishment, when the children of Israel became living sacrifices and burnt offerings in the Nazi death camps, their bleached bones scattered in the ground while the churches stood passively by, in that day and at that time G-d saved Jacob out of it and performed the words He commanded His servant Ezekiel to speak to those bones. The nation of Israel was reborn in one day, when on Friday, Sabbath evening, May 14, 1948, Ben Gurion declared the sovereign State of Israel to be an independent Jewish homeland immediately upon the end of the British Mandate.
“For G-d will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah; and His servants shall dwell there and possess it; the children of His servants shall inherit it, and those who love His Name shall dwell in it.”
“What will one answer the envoys/messengers/reporters of the Gentile nation[s]? That it was [not mere men but] the L-RD Who founded Zion, for the afflicted of His people (in Russian Pogroms, European and Arab anti-Semitism and the Nazi Holocaust) to find refuge there.”
Hence we see G-d regathering the Jewish people, Israel, into their own Land in accordance with His promise to gather His people from the east and from the west, from all the countries to which they were driven, and bring them back to their own land.
Moreover, the Word of salvation is now returning to the Jewish people, to Israel, and will bring forth a great harvest from among them into the Kingdom. From them evangelists, prophets and apostles will go out to all the nations, peoples, tribes and tongues among whom they had lived, and proclaim the full Gospel with signs, wonders and miracles following, making disciples of yet millions of Gentiles.
The Covenant with David is likewise of too great importance to be merely a “type” and “shadow”, done away with at the cross. Who needs this covenant, you may ask?
The Lord Himself does as does the Father Who prepares His Son’s throne in the restored Tent – “ohel” – of David. The Word says that God raises up the “sukkah” of David, repairing its breaches and closing up its gaps which turns it into an “ohel”.
The Davidic leadership, unspoiled by political machinations, will be much needed in the days of the final war about Jerusalem. The royal lineage shall lead the people of Israel LIKE G-d, LIKE the Angel of the Lord. Yeshua, Who IS G-d and Who IS the Angel of the Lord has not as yet returned. The word “like” seems to indicate that this royal lineage of the House of David (there are many families of David for he had many wives and children, and they have descendants until this day) consists of believers in Yeshua.
The blood of the nations’ combined armies will flow for nearly 200 miles (approx. 300 km) down the descent from Jerusalem, at some areas to the depth of 4.5 ft (1.3 m). Their eyes will rot in their sockets and their tongues in their mouths from the chemical and/or biological weapons the nations will use in this war to wrest Jerusalem from Israel.
No judgment on nations? All was done on the cross? There is now only one covenant?

There are Two Books of Life and Two Resurrections
My beloved brother Milo,
not ALL prophecies have been fulfilled at the cross, and not ALL has been accomplished as yet; certain former covenants remain in effect. Neither has Torah been abolished.
What has changed is that the Law no longer lords over the believing Jew. Yeshua has taken its place, and HIS yoke is light. Over the Gentile the law never exercised this lordship in the first place.
What so many Christians fail to realize is that all this “political” fuss over Israel is a satanic attempt to prevent Yeshua’s return. According to Christians, “politics” have nothing whatsoever to do with Messiah, the cross, salvation, G-d’s Kingdom, or any geographical area. If that were so, there would be no Messianic Reign.
G-d established governments, thrones and authorities. A King without a sovereign people and land, without a royal house and throne functions not as a king. As long as the Jews were scattered, Yeshua’s Return seemed far off. But now the Jewish people are back as a sovereign people, in their own land, no longer nameless. Yeshua’s Return is imminent.
“Church” is not a name; it is the transliteration of Kehila and means “assembly,” community,” “congregation,” as well as “called out ones.” The true name of G-d’s people and heirs of G-d’s promises, both natural and spiritual, is Israel. Yeshua shall reign over this natural and spiritual seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob from JERUSALEM – the literal, geographical capital of that people. There He shall take His seat on the throne that was established for Him in the Tent / ohel of David.
And everyone whose name is recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life and who shares in the First Resurrection and the Wedding supper of the Lamb shall return with Him, shining brightly like the stars, all of them sons and daughters and priests of G-d, neither Jew nor Gentile, master nor slave, superior male nor inferior female, the only difference being the measure of their glory according to their measure of Christ-likeness.
Indeed, there is no separate blood covenant for believing Jews and believing Gentiles, for in Messiah both are created as one new man, both being joined together into a dwelling place of G-d in the Spirit.
But there is still a NATURAL people descended from the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and G-d’s covenants still stand with them who have not come to faith in Yeshua. If they live under the Law they will be judged by the Law, and their names may get recorded in the Book of Life, but not in the Book of Life of the Lamb. They may live (else the patriarchs and matriarchs, even Moses and all the prophets would not have eternal life?) but their nature and glory will be as much inferior as the first Adam is to the Last Adam, as the earthen glory is to the heavenly. Wherefore also Paul, blameless as to righteousness under the Law, considered his blamelessness as filthy rags when compared to the surpassing worth of knowing Yeshua the Messiah and being found IN HIM.
There are two books of life and two resurrections. Two kinds of people will live on the new earth: those of heavenly origin and glory will be as innumerable as the stars, and those of earthen glory will be as innumerable as the dust of the earth and the sand on the seashore The latter will form the nations who will bring their glory into the city of G-d come out of heaven, and partake of the leaves of the tree of life for healing. Those of heavenly origin and glory will need no healing, for as partakers of the divine nature they will be like Yeshua Himself, true sons and daughters of G-d, serving in His city as His ministers, His priests.
What more can I say? The teachings on this subject are many.
If you can see, recognize, accept and love the Truth, G-d will protect you from the great delusion that has already begun to engulf the earth. The knowledge and love of Truth will shield you from the terrible deception by which G-d separates the wheat from the chaff as He gathers people upon His threshing floor.
Let us turn from the lie that 1800 years of Gentile Christianity has taught and start afresh, searching out G-d’s Word, carefully dissecting it to KNOW the Truth, to embrace it and love it and fill ourselves with it, to have abundant light even at night should our Bridegroom tarry.
May this teaching bless you, the reader and student of the Word, even if you are taken out of your “comfort zone.” I pray that none take offense, refusing to check it out, but that all be enriched and blessed and prepared for the time to come. Amen and amen.

The Jews are an Adamic race, the goyim-Gentiles are of the race of Enosh
[a] Joseph, son of Jacob, is the perfect foreshadowing of this truth: He explained to his brethren who during the 7 years of famine came to him in Egypt that “G-d send me before you to preserve for YOU a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for YOU – i.e. ISRAEL – many survivors. So it was not you who sent me here but G-d…” – Gen. 45:7-8. Israel at the time were but 70 souls – Gen. 46:27. Yet alongside those mere 70 souls all the Egyptians were saved – Gen. 47:25, and “all the earth” came to Joseph as well to escape the death of famine – Gen. 41:57
[b] The separation of Abraham from Ur of Chaldea and from Lot did not suffice. Another, invisible separation occurred at the time of Abram and Lot’s parting — that of separating Abram and his future seed from the rest of mankind.
The race of man up until the flood was a race of “Adam” descended from the “first” Adam. This race was totally wiped out by the flood except for Noah and his sons [Gen. 7:21-23]. They were the only Adam men who crossed from the era before the flood into the post-deluvian age. Abram, through the lineage of Shem, became the last seed of the former Adam race when G-d singled him out as such at the time of Lot’s disjoining. Henceforth the human race in general is called Enosh – – (human) Flesh, in accordance with G-d’s words in Genesis 6:3, “My spirit shall not abide in Man – Adam for ever, for he is flesh, but his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.”
In order to fully understand the significance of the difference between Adam and Enosh, we need to look at their first occurrence in the Scriptures. Adam (male and female), we know, was made in the Image and after the Likeness of G-d. After the trespass, which resulted in the gradual corruption of this race, they had children. The mentioning of the third child, Seth, follows the sentence: “This is the book of the GENERATIONS of Adam.” This is for a reason, for now we shall be given a genealogy of this race, as well as its ensuing history.
Immediately after this sentence, which states one more time that G-d originally created Adam in His own Image and after His Likenes, we are informed that Adam’s third child, Seth, is now in the image and after the likeness of his fallen parents (Gen. 5:1-3). I.e., he genetically inherited their henceforth corrupt nature (Romans 5:12, 14-19, 21) and, in order that there be absolutely no doubt about it, we are given the name of Seth’s firstborn: Enosh. This name symbolizes the fallen nature of the once sinless Adamic race, having become a “sinful” race, which eventually would degenerate to mere “human flesh”, void of the Spirit of G-d.
However, Abram was still of the Adamic race, although the degeneration of the race is shown in the rapid decline in age. Whereas Noah and his sons still reached an age of several hundred years (Gen. 9:29; 11:10-11), Abram died at the age of 175 (Gen. 25:7).
Enosh indicates a feeble, sickly and woeful race of mortal men void of the Spirit of G-d, which hardly bears any resemblance with the former race of Adam. The words ish [male human], and ishah [female human] merely refer to gender and are also used in the plural [anashim and nashim], whereas Adam and Enosh are used only in the singular, indicative of the type [race] of humanity.
G-d chose this last one of the former Adamic race to become the father of the new Adamic race, recreated through G-d’s grace by faith in Messiah. Yeshua’s two genealogies of Matthew and Luke also attest to Yeshua being a BEN ADAM [and Ben Abraham, Ben David], who, in Luke 3:38, is referred to as “Son of G-d.” Alluding to this fact Yeshua never referred to Himself – when speaking in the third person – as “ben enosh” but only as Ben Adam, the Son of Man [Matt. 11:19; 12:8, etc.] of the more dignified humanity of Adam.
Paul established this factor even further by referring to Yeshua as the Last Adam [1 Cor. 15:45], and by speaking in Romans 11 of branches cut off from their wild olive tree and engrafted into the cultivated olive tree, through faith in Yeshua. Being joined into the cultivated olive tree causes these branches to be filled with and converted to the kind and nature of the cultivated tree. The wild tree is the Enosh-mankind, the cultivated one the Adam-mankind.
G-d separated Abraham from general humanity – Enosh – by means of a covenant. Hence, the “Root – Sion” of the cultivated olive tree is the Abrahamic covenant. All who are branches of that tree – whether natural branches or engrafted ones – partake of that root and tree.
G-d placed yet a further “chasm” between the wild olive tree of general humanity – Enosh – and the cultivated one – Adam – raised up through Abraham, by means of Torah and His specific prohibition of intermarriage. The creative law that undergirds these progressive steps of separation is found in Genesis 1:11-12, 24-25: “Let the earth put forth vegetation… each according to its kind… So G-d created …each according to their kinds…” Just as a thornbush does not bring forth figs, so does the race of Enosh not produce a race of Adam.
Satan has tried with all his might to thwart G-d’s purpose by having the Jews, all of whom are “B’nei Adam,” engrafted into the wild olive tree in order to change their nature into that of Enosh. Nevertheless many millions of Jews rather preferred death than being joined to the race of Enosh. The Spanish Inquisition even created the infamous “certificado di sangue” – “Blood Certificate,” which was to attest to a former Jew’s “pure Christian blood” by him being the 7th generation of intermarriage with Gentile “Catholic Christians.” Since the Church of Rome rejected the Jews as G-d’s chosen people and instead labeled Israel as the “seed of the serpent” while calling itself the “New Israel of G-d,” Jews who converted were forced into abandoning their own, cultivated olive tree. Indeed, many Jews were lost to the House of Israel, while others, through their genuine faith in and baptism into Yeshua remained yet part of the cultivated tree, albeit hidden.
An engrafted branch takes on the nature of the tree into which it is engrafted and of its root. Hence, we can clearly perceive Satan’s scheme of turning things upside down, “converting” the Adamic humanity of the Jews into that of Enosh. Were it not for the Jewish resistance to forced conversion and G-d’s separation of His people from general humanity, the Abrahamic covenant people of Adamic descent would long have ceased to exist. The period of “Enlightenment” — “to the man – enosh all rights, to the Jew – ben adam none,” almost succeeded in swallowing up the Jewish people had it not been for something as horrible as the Nazi Holocaust. G-d apparently preferred His people to become a living sacrifice whom He would raise up in the Resurrection rather than having them cut off from Israel forever. (At least that is the only explanation for the Holocaust I ever could find to make any sense at all.)
And now, in these last days, we see a people descended from the lineage of Ham (see Gen. 10:6, 13-14 – Egypt, father of the Caphtorim from whom the Philistines originate, who came from Caphtor, that is Crete), who call themselves “Palestinians,” contending for the promised Land, challenging G-d’s covenant, oath and promise, intent on utterly destroying Israel as is written in Ps 83: 3-4: “They lay crafty plans against G-d’s people; they consult together against His protected ones. They say, ‘Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!”
Therefore, let every engrafted saint understand, know and realize the importance of the tree into which he was engrafted and thank G-d for having been made a fellow citizen and co-heir of its covenants, heritage and inheritance.

Eye Opening Obama Video
[c] Subject: Eye opening Obama video
Shalom shalom, dear friends:
This letter is to you, my American and Israeli friends, fellow citizens nd brethren in Yeshua/Jesus.
I believe the next elections will be more decisive for American’s future than the Bush/Gore elections were. If the American people vote Barack Hussein Obama into Office they will have voted Anti- Americanism, black liberation theology, anti-Israel and Islam into power. Hearing Obama’s pastor rail against America, shouting “God damn America!”, and saying that he supports Iraq’s fight of liberation against the rich, white people who invented the HIV virus to use against the colored people, my hair stood up in horror, so-to-speak. Obama’s hands are down and folded during the singing of America’s national anthem, and he refuses to rebuff Rev. Wright and his outragous sermons and accusations. Having been for 20 years under the influence of such anti-America, anti-white, black liberation theology, and furthermore exposed to radical Islam would make this man, if voted to be the next President, the #1 enemy of the American people.
Worth 10,000 words!
NOTE the ACLU logo and what it says under it!
(Anti-Christian Lawyers Union – “Jihad with a Law Degree”)
I know, and have warned many times, that judgment has been decreed upon the nation if it will be the United States of America leading in the dividing up of G-d’s own land. Although this is not America’s only sin, the many other sins would not lead to the downfall of America and the disassembling of her Union. G-d would judge, yes, He would discipline, yes, but He would not bring the nation to the brink of ruin. If Israel will be divided up by the American administration, then it may just be that judgment will come by the very man the American people will vote into office — Barack Hussein Obama.
I am an American/Israeli citizen myself, by choice and not by birth, and I love both nations. After having learned these things about Obama, and heard his pastor of 20 years rail like this against America and make such outrageous, ridiculous accusations against “rich, white people”, with theologican James Hal Cone, founder of the black liberation theology, personifying Obama’s beliefs, and Cuban Marxist guerilla fighter Che Guevara being one of his heros, his poster hanging in Obama’s campaign offices, I KNOW whom NOT to vote for!.
I believe ALL of America, regardless of race and creed, as well as all of Israel, needs to listen to this video – A Video Portrait Of Barack Hussein Obama – and be warned whom NOT to vote into Office.
May the Holy One of Israel prevent the present American President from dividing up G-d’s own Land, turning Judea (G-d’s sceptre) and Samaria (G-d’s helmet) over to the entity that seeks the destruction of the whole nation of Israel, and dividing up the city of the Great King, Jerusalem. If a Palestinian State will be created upon G-d’s sceptre and helmet, with the land of Israel getting divided by connecting Judea and Samaria with the Gaza strip, and East Jerusalem made the capital of the alien entity with whom G-d has made no covenant, THEN judgment is inevitable.
I urge all American and Israeli believers in the Messiah of Israel, Yeshua/Jesus of Nazareth, to join in a nation wide fast, with faces on the ground, even in sackcloth and with ashes, pleading G-d for saving them from this man and from being used to divide up G-d’s own Land. And this should not be merely a 1-day fast and prayer, it should be a cry that goes up to G-d from the very bottom of our hearts, not giving ourselves rest until G-d has diverted the disaster from befalling Israel and therefore America.
Israel and America are in VERY GRAVE DANGER!!! Let us not take our freedom, our prosperity, our homes, our lives, for granted! Let us pray to the G-d of all the earth, the Father of our Lord Yeshua/ Jesus, OUR Father, and beseech Him to save our nations from disaster. Of course, what is written will come to pass, for Scripture cannot be broken, but let it not be our beloved America that will cause our beloved Israel, G-d’s land, to be divided.
