"because of Jesus", Stimulated this post.I do not call myself a Jew because of Jesus. I, a Gentile, have been grafted into the tree which is the people of God, the Body of Christ. Jews were branches of that tree, not the tree itself, not the root. I, like any Jew that believes in Christ, am a branch. The tree, the root does not see me as either Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female. It sees no distinction. I am now part of the body of Christ, an heir to the promise made to Abraham. That promise, that covenant was unconditional, unlike the Sinaitic Covenant between God and the Children of Israel, which was conditional upon their behavior.
AV Re 12:1-2 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
AV Re 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and [to] his throne.
AV Re 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
So if "the dragon" knows who to have war with, does GOD commit adultery on "the woman" ???
Yours in Christ, Michael
