I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, 2. That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
3. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my BRETHREN, my KINSMEN according to the FLESH:
4. Who are ISRAELITES; to whom pertaineth the 1.adoption, and the 2.glory, and the 3.covenants, and the 4.giving of the law, and 5.the service of God, and 6.the promises; 5. Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
So Christ came for Israel, Romans 9:1-5 makes it clear and Romans 9:13-15 Is the seal for those unbelievers that think the Most High loves everyone.
13. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. 14. What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid (NO). 15. For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
The Most High Has chosen to have mercy on Israel not the other nations.
So the question is ask; "If salvation is only for Israel what is the purpose for the other nations on the face of the Earth and What is salvation?"
I know for the Christian salvation is repenting from sin that Christ nailed to the cross and giving your heart to Jesus. What does the scriptures really say?
I also looked up the word "Salvation", and this was what I came up with:
1. In the Christian doctrine of salvation, we are saved from “wrath,” that is, from God’s judgment of sin. In the Christian doctrine of salvation, God has rescued Christians through Christ.
2. deliverance from danger or difficulty.
3. The act of saving; preservation or deliverance from destruction, danger, or great calamity.
The last two definitions are what salvation really is. To be saved from danger, destruction and great calamity.
Can we find a New Testament scripture that shows us that example? Yes.
Luke 68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, 69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; 70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: 71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; 72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
So Salvation is to be saved from our enemies. Israel has many enemies an they need a savior to deliver them out of trouble. Christ is that savoir for Israel.
So what about everyone else? What happens to everyone else? Why did the Most High create the other nations.
Here are a few scriptures that prove this to be true:
Numbers 24:17-19 17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth . 18 And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies ; and Israel shall do valiantly. 19 Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion , and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.
Isaiah 14:1-3 1 For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob. 2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives , whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors . 3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve ,
Isaiah 45:12-16 12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded . 13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts. 14 Thus saith the LORD, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over , and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God. 15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour . 16 They shall be ashamed , and also confounded , all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.
Isaiah 49:22-26 22 Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders. 23 And kings shall be thy nursing fathers , and their queens thy nursing mothers : they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me. 24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered ? 25 But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away , and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered : for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. 26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer , the mighty One of Jacob.
As you can tell the other nations are to serve Israel. In fact if they do not serve Israel they will be put to destruction.
Isaiah 60:10-15 10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee. 11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought . 12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish ; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted . 13 The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious . 14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel. 15 Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated , so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.
This is the Most High's plan for His people so that they will rule the world and posses the nations
