Gentile believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have been brought into covenant relationship with the God of Israel, and with Jewish believers in the Son of God. The Church — the Body of Christ/Messiah, the one new man, the Bride of the Lamb — is comprised of both these redeemed and born-again believers called out from every people group and nation. We all have a significant role to play through to the end of the age towards YHVH God’s salvation of His chosen people Israel, by which the whole world and creation will be blessed.
Is 62:6-7 intercession by watchmen until YHVH makes Jerusalem a praise in the Earth
Lk 21:24 Jerusalem trampled underfoot by Gentiles until time of Gentiles fulfilled (has not yet). “Stand With Israel” for GOD’s purposes, which cannot fail!
Is 40:1-5 comfort God’s people (He is speaking to believers); prepare the way of the LORD;
God has not forsaken His people or His covenants; the fig tree is blossoming again, but still lacks fruit for GOD; the mouth of YHVH has spoken
Dan 11:32-35; 12:10; Eph 5:27 be strong, do exploits, instruct many, be refined, purified, made white; the Bride of the Lamb will be glorious, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without blemish
Mt 25:34-40; Rev 19:8 show mercy to least of Jesus’ brethren (although this applies to the sheep nations, the Righteous Gentiles, but should be expected of born-again believers); risking one’s life to provide food, water, shelter, clothing, medical attention; the Bride clothed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints
We will be tested, proving our faith in the fear of YHVH, like Abraham was (we are sons of Abraham in the faith).
