We know enough to know, that no matter how much you care for A TREE and water it and feed it etc. that if THE ROOT is NOT healthy, then THE BRANCHES are NOT GOING TO BE HEALTHY EITHER. Let’s examine some of these Scriptures! The serpent’s pulpit was THE TREE of THE KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL. Our Savior’s pulpit is THE TREE of THE CROSS. These are the words of Jesus, Himself! Matt. 12:33-EITHER MAKE THE TREE GOOD and ITS FRUIT GOOD, or else MAKE THE TREE BAD and ITS FRUIT BAD; for A TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT.
Pro. 13:12-Hope deferred makes the HEART SICK, but WHEN THE DESIRE COMES it IS A TREE of LIFE. Ps. 21:1-the king shall have joy in YOUR STRENGTH, O Lord: and in YOUR SALVATION how greatly shall he rejoice! (2) You have given him HIS HEART’S DESIRE, and have not withheld the request of his lips. (3) For You meet him WITH THE BLESSINGS of GOODNESS; You have set a crown of pure gold upon his head. (4) HE ASKED LIFE FROM YOU, and YOU GAVE IT TO HIM---LENGTH OF DAYS FOREVER and EVER. (5) HIS GLORY is GREAT in YOUR SALVATION; honor and majesty You have placed upon him. (6) for You have made him MOST BLESSED FOREVER.
Deut. 30:15-SEE, I have set before you today LIFE and GOOD, DEATH and EVIL. (19) I call heaven and earth as witness today against you, that I have set before you LIFE and DEATH, BLESSING and CURSING; therefore CHOOSE LIFE that BOTH YOU and YOUR DESCENDANTS MAY LIVE. James 3:5-Even so THE TONGUE is a little member and boasts great things. See how great A FIRE a forest a little fire kindles! (6) and THE TONGUE is A FIRE, A WORLD of INIQUITY. The TONGUE is so set among our members that IT defiles THE WHOLE BODY, and SETS ON FIRE the COURSE OF NATURE; and IT is set on fire BY HELL. (9) With IT we BLESS our GOD and Father, and with IT WE CURSE MEN, who have been made in the similitude of God. (10) Out of the same mouth proceed BLESSING and CURSING. My brethren THESE THINGS OUGHT NOT TO BE SO.
1 Peter 3:9-not returning EVIL for EVIL or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary BLESSING, knowing that you WERE CALLED to THIS, that YOU MAY INHERIT A BLESSING.
So then, we might say in one sense that the tongue is the little devil which gets us in SO much TROUBLE! (smile) Pro. 18:21-DEATH and LIFE are IN THE POWER of THE TONGUE, and THOSE who love IT will EAT ITS FRUIT. Pro. 16:25-There is A WAY that SEEMS RIGHT to a man, but ITS END is THE WAY of DEATH.
Pro. 24:11-Deliver those WHO ARE DRAWN TOWARD DEATH, and HOLD BACK those stumbling to THE SLAUGHTER. Jere. 11:19-But I was like a DOCILE LAMB brought TO THE SLAUGHTER, and I DID NOT KNOW that they had devised schemes against me, SAYING, “LET US DESTROY THE TREE WITH ITS FRUIT, and LET US CUT HIM OFF FROM THE LAND OF THE LIVING, THAT HIS NAME MAY BE REMEMBERED NO MORE. Mal. 4:2-But to you who FEAR MY NAME THE SUN of RIGHTEOUSNESS shall ARISE WITH HEALING IN HIS WINGS; (4) Remember the Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded him IN HOREB for ALL ISRAEL, with the statutes and judgments. (5) Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet BEFORE the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. (6) And HE WILL TURN the hearts of THE FATHERS to THE CHILDREN and hearts of THE CHILDREN to THEIR FATHERS lest I come and strike the earth with a curse. Jere. 10:6-Inasmuch as there is NONE like YOU, O Lord You are great, and YOUR NAME is GREAT in MIGHT, (7) who would NOT FEAR You, O KING of THE NATIONS? For THIS is YOUR RIGHTFUL DUE. (10) But the Lord IS THE TRUE GOD; HE IS THE LIVING GOD AND THE EVERLASTING KING.
Pro. 16:14-As MESSENGERS of DEATH is THE KING’S WRATH, (1 Thess. 5:9-For God did NOT appoint us TO WRATH, but TO OBTAIN SALVATION through our Lord Jesus Christ.) (Rom. 4:15-Because THE LAW brings about WRATH; for where there is NO law there is NO transgression.) (Rom. 10:4-For CHRIST is THE END OF THE LAW for RIGHTEOUSNESS to everyone who BELIEVES.) (Pro. 12:28-In THE WAY of RIGHTEOUSNESS is LIFE, and in ITS pathway there is NO DEATH.) )Pro. 11:30-THE FRUIT of THE RIGHTEOUS is A TREE OF LIFE, and he who wins souls is WISE.) but a wise man WILL APPEASE IT. (15) In THE LIGHT of the KING’S FACE is LIFE, and HIS FAVOR is like a cloud of THE LATTER RAIN. Is. 45:8-RAIN DOWN, you heavens, from above and let the skies pour down RIGHTEOUSNESS; let the earth open, LET THEM BRING FORTH SALVATION, and LET RIGHTEOUSNESS SPRING UP TOGETHER. I, the Lord have created it.
John 6:32-Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses DID NOT give you THE BREAD FROM HEAVEN, but MY FATHER gives you THE TRUE BREAD from HEAVEN. (33) For THE BREAD OF GOD is HE who COMES DOWN from HEAVEN and GIVES LIFE TO THE WORLD.”
Now, let’s examine the TWO OLIVE TREES!
Rom.11:11-I say then, have they (The Jews) stumbled that they should fall? Certainly NOT! (Ps. 145:14-The Lord upholds ALL who FALL, and RAISES UP those who are bowed down.) But through THEIR FALL, to provoke them to jealousy, SALVATION has come TO THE GENTILES. (12) Now if their fall IS RICHES FOR THE WORLD, and THEIR FAILURE RICHES for THE GENTILES, how MUCH MORE THEIR FULLNESS! (James 2:8-If you really fulfill the ROYAL LAW according to the Scripture. "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF," you do well; (9) But if you SHOW PARTIALITY, you commit sin AND ARE CONVICTED BY THE LAW as TRANSGRESSORS. (10) For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet STUMBLE in ONE POINT, he is guilty OF ALL.
This is the main point that they stumbled in, and we are NO different, we have stumbled in this point regarding them. Rom. 15:1-We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and NOT to please OURSELVES. (2) Let each of us PLEASE his NEIGHBOR for HIS GOOD, leading to EDIFICATION. Rom. 12:14-BLESS those who persecute you; BLESS and DO NOT CURSE.
Now, look at this! Rom.11:15-For if their being cast away IS THE RECONCILING OF THE WORLD, WHAT WILL THEIR ACCEPTANCE BE BUT LIFE FROM THE DEAD? (16) For if THE FIRSTFRUIT is HOLY, THE LUMP is ALSO HOLY; and if THE ROOT is HOLY, SO ARE THE BRANCHES. (17) And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being A WILD OLIVE TREE, were GRAFTED in AMONG THEM, and WITH THEM became A PARTAKER of THE ROOT and FATNESS of THE OLIVE TREE, (18) do not boast against the branches. But if you boast, REMEMBER that YOU DO NOT SUPPORT THE ROOT, but THE ROOT SUPPORTS YOU.
(They are OUR ROOT, and so we had better take care of them, IF we want to be HEALTHY!)
(19) You will say then, "Branches were broken off THAT I MAY BE GRAFTED IN. (20) Well said, BECAUSE of UNBELIEF they were BROKEN OFF, and you STAND by FAITH. Heb. 3:12-Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you AN EVIL HEART of UNBELIEF, in DEPARTING FROM THE LIVING GOD; Jere. 17:13-O Lord, THE HOPE of ISRAEL, all who FORSAKE YOU shall be ashamed. Those who DEPART from ME shall be written in the earth, BECAUSE they have FORSAKEN the LORD, THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS. (16) As for me, I have not hurried away from being A SHEPHERD who FOLLOWS YOU, NOR HAVE I DESIRED THE WOEFUL DAY; Job 36:20-DO NOT DESIRE THE NIGHT, when people ARE CUT OFF IN THEIR PLACE.)
Returning to Rom 11:20- Do not be haughty, but FEAR. (21) For if God did not spare THE NATURAL BRANCHES, HE MAY NOT SPARE YOU EITHER. (22) Therefore consider THE GOODNESS and THE SEVERITY of GOD: on those who fell, severity; but toward you goodness, IF YOU CONTINUE IN HIS GOODNESS. OTHERWISE YOU ALSO WILL BE CUT OFF. (23) And they also, if they DO NOT CONTINUE in UNBELIEF, WILL BE GRAFTED IN, FOR GOD IS ABLE TO GRAFT THEM IN AGAIN. (24) for if you were cut out of the OLIVE TREE which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into A GOOD OLIVE TREE, how much MORE will THESE, who are THE NATURAL branches, BE GRAFTED INTO THEIR OWN OLIVE TREE? (25) For I do not desire, brethren, that YOU SHOULD BE IGNORANT of THIS MYSTERY, lest you should be wise IN YOUR OWN OPINION, that HARDENING IN PART has HAPPENED to ISRAEL UNTIL THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES has COME IN. (26) And so ALL Israel WILL BE SAVED as IT IS WRITTEN: The Deliverer will COME OUT OF ZION, and HE WILL TURN away UNGODLINESS from JACOB; For this is MY COVENANT wirh them, when I take away their sins.
(Ps.2:6-Yet I have set My King on my holy hill of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, You are My Son, today I have begotten You. (8) Ask of Me and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. (We are asking for the nation of Israel, to be given to YOUR SON, for THIS is HIS INHERITANCE! ) Eph. 1:9-having made known to us THE MYSTERY of HIS will according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, (10) THAT IN THE DESPENSATION of THE FULLNESS of THE TIMES HE MIGHT GATHER TOGETHER in ONE ALL THINGS in CHRIST, both which are IN HEAVEN and WHICH ARE ON EARTH—IN HIM.
Heb. 9:15-And FOR THIS REASON He is THE MEDIATOR of THE NEW COVENANT, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions UNDER THE FIRST COVENANT, that those who are called may receive THE PROMISE of the eternal inheritance.) (28) Concerning THE GOSPEL they are ENEMIES for YOUR SAKE, but concerning THE ELECTION they are BELOVED for THE SAKE OF THE FATHERS. (29) For the gifts and the calling of God are IRREVOCABLE.
Is. 41:6-I, the Lord HAVE CALLED You in RIGHTEOUSNESS, and will hold Your hand: I WILL KEEP YOU and GIVE YOU as A COVENANT to the people, AS A LIGHT to THE GENTILES, (7) To open BLIND EYES, (The Jewish nation have been declared LEGALLY BLIND by THE LAW:
2 Corin. 3:14-But THEIR MINDS were HARDENED, for UNTIL THIS DAY the SAME VEIL remains UNLIFTED IN THE READING OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, because THE VEIL IS TAKEN AWAY IN CHRIST. (15) But EVEN TO THIS DAY, when Moses is read A VEIL LIES OVER THEIR HEARTS. (16) Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, THE VEIL IS TAKEN AWAY. (17) Now the Lord is THE SPIRIT and WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS, THERE IS LIBERTY.
Gal. 4:23-But he who was born of THE BONDWOMAN was born according to THE FLESH, and he of THE FREEWOMAN through PROMISE. (24) Which things are symbolic. For THESE are THE TWO COVENANTS: the one from Mount Sinai which is GIVES BIRTH TO BONDAGE, which is HAGAR--(25) For THIS HAGAR IS Mount Sinai in ARABIA, and CORRESPONDS to JERUSALEM which NOW IS, and IS IN BONDAGE with HER CHILDREN---BUT THE JERUSALEM ABOVE IS FREE, (Which would have to be SARA) which is THE MOTHER of US ALL. 2 Tim. 26-And THAT THEY may COME to THEIR SENSES and ESCAPE the SNARE of THE DEVIL, having been TAKEN CAPTIVE by him to DO HIS WILL.
(Just as God works all things together for GOOD, the devil takes good and works it for BAD. Just like taking the law and always standing there as judge reading them their rights through the law and always keeping them in bondage! 1 Corin. 15:56-THE STING of DEATH is SIN, and THE STRENGTH of SIN IS THE LAW. Rom. 3:19-Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who ARE UNDER THE LAW, that EVERY MOUTH may be stopped, AND ALL THE WORLD MAY BECOME GUILTY before GOD. (20) Therefore by THE DEEDS of THE LAW NO FLESH will BE JUSTIFIED in His sight, FOR BY THE LAW IS THE KNOWLEDGE of SIN. (21) But now THE RIGHTEOUSNESS of GOD apart from the law is REVEALED, being witnesses by THE LAW and THE PROPHETS, (22) even the righteousness of God which is through FAITH in Jesus Christ TO ALL, and ON ALL who believe. For there is no difference; (23) for ALL have SINNED and FALL SHORT of THE GLORY of GOD.
But NOT ANY MORE! Rom. 6:4-Christ WAS RAISED from the dead BY THE GLORY of THE FATHER, even so we also should walk IN NEWNESS of LIFE. 1 John 4:9-IN THIS the LOVE of GOD was MANIFESTED toward us, that God has SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON into the world that WE MIGHT LIVE through Him. Acts 13:32-And we declare to you GLAD TIDINGS--THAT PROMISE which was made to the fathers. (33) God has fulfilled THIS for US their children, IN THAT He HAS RAISED UP JESUS. As it is also written in the second Psalm: You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance and the ends of the earth for Your possession. John 15:8-By THIS My Father is GLORIFIED that you BEAR MUCH FRUIT; so you will be MY DISCIPLES. (Well I don't know of anymore fruit then we can bear than that!) (Remember, all we have TO DO IS ASK, He will do THE GIVING! (SMILE)
Now coming back to Romans and our ALL-LlVE TREE! Rom. 11:29-For the GIFTS and THE CALLING of GOD is IRREVOCABLE. Is. 49:1-Listen, O coastlands, to Me, and take heed, you peoples from afar! THE LORD HAS CALLED ME FROM THE WOMB; (It is in these very next verses that go on to say (8) I will preserve You and GIVE YOU as A COVENANT to the people TO RESTORE THE EARTH and verse six says, I will also GIVE YOU as A LIGHT TO THE GENTILES, that YOU SHOULD BE MY SALVATION TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.
Now back to Romans again 11:30-For AS YOU were ONCE DISOBEDIENT to GOD, yet HAVE NOW OBTAINED MERCY THROUGH THEIR (The Jews) DISOBEDIENCE, (31) even so THESE ALSO HAVE NOW BEEN DISOBEDIENT, that THROUGH THE MERCY shown YOU THEY ALSO MAY OBTAIN MERCY. (32) For GOD has COMMITTED THEM ALL to DISOBEDIENCE, that HE MIGHT HAVE MERCY on ALL.
Rom. 9:15-For He says to Moses, I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHOMEVER I will HAVE MERCY, and I WILL HAVE COMPASSION on WHOMEVER I WILL HAVE COMPASSION. (16) So then IT IS NOT of him WHO WILLS, NOR of HIM WHO RUNS, but OF GOD WHO SHOWS MERCY. (So then it is NOT of US at ALL, but it is TOTALLY of HIM! (smile) Eph. 2:8-For BY GRACE you have been saved through FAITH, and THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES; IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD. (9) not of works, lest anyone should boast (10) For WE are HIS WORKMANSHIP, created for GOOD WORKS, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk IN THEM. John 15:16-YOU DID NOT CHOOSE ME, but I CHOSE YOU and APPOINTED you that you should go and BEAR FRUIT, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the father in My name He may GIVE you.
Luke 21:20-"BUT when you see ISRAEL SURROUNDED BY ARMIES, then KNOW THAT ITS DESOLATION IS NEAR. Ps. 74:1-O God, why have You cast us off forever? Why does YOUR ANGER smoke AGAINST THE SHEEP of YOUR PASTURE? (2) Remember YOUR CONGREGATION, which You have purchased of old, THE TRIBE of YOUR INHERITANCE which You have REDEEMED-THIS MOUNT ZION where YOU HAVE DWELT. (3) Lift up Your feet TO THE PERPETUAL DESOLATIONS. THE ENEMY has DESTROYED EVERYTHING in THE SANCTUARY. (4) Your enemies are in the MIDST of YOUR MEETING PLACE; They set up there banners for signs. (5) They seem like men who lift up axes among the thick trees. (12) For GOD IS MY KING from of OLD, WORKING SALVATION IN THE MIDST OF THE EARTH.
Mark 13:5-Take heed that no one DECEIVES you. (6) For many will come in My name, saying, I am He, and will DECEIVE many. (7) And when you HEAR OF WARS and RUMORS of WARS, DO NOT BE TROUBLED; for such things must happen, BUT THE END IS NOT YET. Matt. 24:14-And THIS GOSPEL of THE KINGDOM will BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD as A WITNESS to ALL THE NATIONS, and THEN the END WILL COME. Gal. 3:8-And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would JUSTIFY the nations BY FAITH, PREACHED THE GOSPEL to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you ALL the nations shall be BLESSED. (That includes the nation of ISRAEL!)
Mark 1:1-THE BEGINNING of THE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST, the Son of God. (2) As it is written in the Prophets. “Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You. (3) The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. Is. 40:3-THE VOICE of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; Make His paths straight in the desert a highway for our God. (4) Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; The crooked places shall be made straight, and the rough places smooth; (5) THE GLORY of the LORD shall be REVEALED, and ALL flesh shall see it together; FOR THE MOUTH OF THE LORD HAS SPOKEN. (6) The voice said, ‘Cry out!” And he said, “WHAT shall I CRY?” (9) O ZION You who bring GOOD TIDINGS, Get up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem; You who bring GOOD TIDINGS, lift up your voice with strength, lift it up, be not afraid; Say to the cities of Judah, “BEHOLD YOUR GOD!” (10) Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him AND HIS WORK BEFORE HIM, (11) He will feed HIS FLOCK like A SHEPHERD; He will gather HIS LAMBS with His arm, and carry them in HIS BOSOM.
Jere. 31:10-Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘HE WHO HAS SCATTERED ISRAEL WILL GATHER HIM, and KEEP HIM as A SHEPHERD DOES A FLOCK. (11) for the Lord has redeemed Jacob and ransomed him from the hand of one stronger than he. (12) Therefore THEY SHALL COME AND SING IN THE HEIGHT of ZION, STREAMING TO THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD—Eze.34:6-My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and on every high hill; yes MY FLOCK was SCATTERED OVER THE WHOLE FACE OF THE EARTH, and NO ONE WAS SEEKING or SEARCHING FOR THEM. (11) for thus says the Lord God: Indeed I MYSELF will SEARCH FOR MY SHEEP and SEEK THEM OUT. (12) As A SHEPHERD SEEKS OUT HIS FLOCK ON THE DAY HE IS AMONG THE SCATTERED SHEEP and DELIVER THEM from ALL THE PLACES WHERE THEY WERE SCATTERED ON A CLOUDY AND DARK DAY. (22) Therefore I WILL SAVE MY FLOCK, and they shall no longer be a prey; and I will judge between sheep and sheep. (23) I will establish one shepherd over them, and HE SHALL FEED THEM-MY SERVANT DAVID. HE SHALL FEED THEM AND BE THEIR SHEPHERD.
(24) And I, THE LORD WILL BE THEIR GOD, and MY SERVANT DAVID a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken. (25) I will MAKE A COVENANT OF PEACE with THEM, and cause wild beasts to cease from the land; and they shall DWELL SAFELY in the wilderness and sleep in the woods. (26) I will make THEM and the places all around MY HILL A BLESSING; and I WILL CAUSE SHOWERS TO COME DOWN IN THEIR SEASON; there SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING.
James 5:7-Therefore be patient, brethren, UNTIL THE COMING OF THE LORD. See how the farmer WAITS for THE PRECIOUS FRUIT OF THE EARTH, waiting patiently for it UNTIL IT RECEIVES THE EARLY AND LATTER RAIN. Is. 45:8-RAIN down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down RIGHTEOUSNESS; Let the earth open, LET THEM BRING FORTH SALVATION, and let RIGHTEOUSNESS SPRING up TOGETHER. I, the Lord have created it. Heb. 9:28-To those who eagerly WAIT for Him HE WILL APPEAR A SECOND TIME apart from sin, FOR SALVATION.
Is. 10:22-For though your people, O Israel, be as the sand of the sea, Yet a remant of them WILL RETURN; THE DESTRUCTION DECREED shall OVERFLOW with RIGHTEOUSNESS. (23) For the Lord God of hosts WILL MAKE A DETERMINED END in the midst of the land.
Ps. 22:27-ALL THE ENDS OF THE WORLD SHALL REMEMBER and TURN TO THE LORD, and all the families OF THE NATIONS shall worship before you. (28) FOR THE KINGDOM is THE LORD'S and HE RULES OVER THE NATIONS. Matt. 28:18-Then Jesus came and spoke to them saying, "ALL AUTHORITY has BEEN GIVEN to Me in HEAVEN and ON EARTH. (19) GO therefore and make DISCIPLES of ALL THE NATIONS baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (20) teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; AND LO I AM WITH YOU ALWAY, EVEN TO THE END OF THE WORLD. (KJV)
1 Sam. 2:10-The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken in pieces; FROM HEAVEN He will thunder against them. THE LORD WILL JUDGE THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.
O Most Glorious and Holy Father, We joyfully bring all of this word into Your Presence and ask that it be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. As You have set forth in Your word as Your eternal purpose. “To the intent that now THE MANIFOLD WISDOM of GOD might BE MADE KNOWN to THE PRINCIPALITIES and POWERS in the HEAVENLY PLACES.”
You have redeemed Your people Israel, for we repent of our wicked ways, of not caring about our Jewish brothers. Father by faith we bring them as One man, as the Body of Christ and by faith we seat them on THE MERCY SEAT. By faith we sprinkle them with the BLOOD of the LAMB which takes away THE SIN (Unbelief) of the world. We loose them through Him from this veil which lies over their heart in the reading of the Old Testament. We loose them from the bondage, the curse, and the letter of the law, and we bind them to the GLORIOUS LIBERTY of THE SPIRIT.
We also loose them from THE CONTENTION! As we read in Jude 9-Yet Michael the archangel in CONTENDING with THE DEVIL, when he DISPUTED ABOUT THE BODYOF MOSES. We contend that now THE BODY of MOSES is PART OF THE BODY OF CHRIST. Making us WHOLE! For there is ONLY ONE BODY! For Christ took the body of the Law and nailed it to the tree, thereby disarming all principalities and powers, and thereby loosing their hold on them. TRIUMPHING OVER THEM IN IT, for MERCY TRIUMPHS over JUDGMENT.
Father we ask that NOW You will bring them out of DARKNESS into YOUR MARVELOUS LIGHT, That the enemy will NO longer be able to hold them AS BONDSERVANTS by THE LAW.
May You open THE DOOR of FAITH to our Jewish brothers and sisters that THEY TOO may STEP INTO YOUR MARVELOUS GRACE. For no man is justified by the law, and yet we have stumbled too, by not taking them to heart. May they be loosed from the Old Covenant and brought into the New, by the blood of Christ. For we are told in the Book of Hebrews, "For THIS REASON HE IS THE MEDIATOR of THE NEW COVENANT by means of death, FOR THE REDEMPTIONS of THE TRANSGRESSIONS UNDER THE FIRST COVENANT, that those WHO ARE CALLED may receive THE PROMISE of the ETERNAL INHERITANCE.
We are asking You to make THE ROOT HOLY and then THE WHOLE TREE CAN BE HOLY. Your word tells us in Matt. 12:33-EITHER MAKE THE TREE GOOD and ITS FRUIT GOOD, or else MAKE THE TREE BAD and ITS FRUIT BAD; for A TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT.
Father in His name and through His blood we MAKE THE WHOLE TREE GOOD, and ALL of ITS FRUIT GOOD!!! FOR ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED. Now, Father bring us in together into that GOOD LAND that You have been waiting to give us as we join hands with our Jewish brothers and sisters and keep on extending our hands all across the land.....
All victory is to You, FOR NOW THE DOOR OF FAITH is OPENED TO YOU, TO COME and BRING US THIS SALVATION that we have been WAITING FOR! As stated in Is. 30:18-Therefore the LORD WILL WAIT, that He may be GRACIOUS to you; And therefore HE WILL BE EXALTED that HE MAY HAVE MERCY on YOU. (19) for the people SHALL DWELL IN ZION at JERUSALEM. Victory and honor and glory and power belong unto You, for You are AWESOME, and we have been waiting for YOU!! In Jesus name who has gained THE VICTORY!! For by HIS BLOOD HE HAS MADE THE WHOLE TREE GOOD! AMEN and AMEN
