The Seed Of Abraham

s Christian leaders, to say nothing of average
believers, continue to preach a theology that is inconsistent with the
scriptures, it is no wonder that few believers understand who they
are in Jesus Christ. In recent historical periods, anyone that
believed outside the paradigm of the Rapture Cult and its myriad of
dispensational tentacles, was largely thought to be amillennial.
Such do not believe in the futurist school of prophecy in that they
erroneously turn vast amounts of literal prophecy into symbolic
statements.

However, the emerging system usually dubbed as
Remnant,
believes the Christians are the Remnant of Israel, yet
sees the future fulfillment of end times prophecy. Because the promises
relative to preservation of the believer are tied to their
identity
in Christ, one might think that most would see this as a
crucial issue. Unfortunately, under the gospel of Antichrist presently
being taught in most churches today under the guise of
"Judaeo-Christianity," the believers are believers in a Jesus that doesn't
exist. This fictional entity cannot, therefore, save the millions of
people that believe in him, for he is "another Jesus," and not the one
taught in the Word of God.

Those that teach this "other gospel" (Galatians 1:8)
are, in effect, saying "come let us go after other gods" (Deuteronomy
13:2), and they are thus manifesting the role defined as that of a false
prophet. While the Rapture Cult battles the post-millennialists and the
amillennialists for pre-eminence, they are both standing in a burning
building.

The Scriptures plainly teach the promises of a
chosen people are to Abraham and his seed (Genesis 12).
That promise runs through the line of Isaac, Israel, and others directly
through the house of David, where the LORD says

"I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed
out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an
house for my name, and I wilI stablish the throne of his kingdom forever.
I will be his father, and he shall be my son." (II Samuel 7:12-14).

Saint Matthew tells us Jesus Christ is this "son
of David, the son of Abraham" (Matthew 1:1) who will build an "house" for
the LORD. Jesus told us "destroy this [house] and in three days, I will
raise it up" (John 2:19). Since Solomon, as the physical son
of David sought to build the LORD an "house" -- using witchcraft and pagan
deities as his guide (I Kings 11:7), he was seeking to do in the flesh
what Christ accomplished in the Spirit. The Rapture Cult is
the group that would rebuild Solomon's physical temple in Jerusalem -- an
act that, when accompanied by the resumption of animal sacrifice is "the
abomination of desolation."

The Apostle Paul says Jesus is the "seed" of Abraham,
which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh" (Romans 1:3).
When Christ encountered the Pharisees and they said they didn't need Him
because "we have Abraham to our father" (Luke 3:8), they were telling him
they were the seed of Abraham, and therefore the recipients of the
promise of a chosen people.

Jesus told them flatly "ye are of your father the
devil" (John 8:44) because their works demonstrated whose "seed" they
were. Paul says the "seed" of Abraham is Christ -- "He saith not,
And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is
Christ" (Galatians 3:16). This means, if you're not in Christ, you cannot
possibly be "the seed of Abraham."

Thus, the Christians are the children of the promise (Romans 9:8), and
those that teach the Jews are the chosen people are preaching the exact
opposite: the gospel of the Antichrist.
