9.0<O.T: "NOT ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED" 1a. A LOST, CHRIST REJECTING, JEWS’ ONLY HOPE is: "NOT GIVING HEED TO JEWISH FABLES and commandments of men, that turn from the Truth."

“The Hope of

(‘National’)

Israel:
What Is It?”

(1922)

By  Philip Mauro

God’s Plain-Spoken Warning

against “Jewish fables.”

Answer:

“Natural Israel”

is made up of “Jews”

and

“The Jewish People”,

as a Nation, were once,

“God’s Chosen People”,

in that The Eternal Triune Godhead

Choose The Nation of Israel,

generally speaking,

to BE GOD’S WITNESS

and

CARRY GOD’S MESSAGE

of ETERNAL SALVATION

THROUGH The PROMISED

“MESSIAH”,

The LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Specifically,

there were

PARTICULAR INDIVIDUALS,

within “The Jewish Nation”

who WERE SAVED,

by The BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST,

as  

GOD “Used” 

“The Jewish Nation”

AS HIS WITNESS,

at that Time,

in The OLD TESTAMENT,

to

CARRY GOD’S MESSAGE

of ETERNAL SALVATION

TO BE OBTAINED ONLY

THROUGH

The PROMISED “MESSIAH”,

The LORD JESUS CHRIST.

In “The Nation of Israel”,

in The Old Testament:

NOT ALL of “THE JEWS”

were Saved

and

“Came to Know The Lord,

by Being SPIRITUALLY RE-BORN”

MANY “JEWS” WERE SAVED

in The Old Testament.

Some “Gentiles”

WERE SAVED

in The Old Testament.

There are and will be Many “Jews”

SAVED

in The New Testament Age;

from

Jesus The Messiah Coming to Earth

and Ascending Back to Heaven,

Until Jesus Comes Again, a Second Time,

to Judge The World

and

Bring God’s Plans for The World

TO AN END.

And, of course,

in The New Testament Age,

after

Jesus Came in The Flesh Preached

with His Disciples

to “The House of Israel”/ “The Jews”,

not only were

Many of The Jews Saved,

but

Many Jews

REJECTED

Jesus’ Message of Eternal Salvation.

ACTS 13:46 a;

WE TURN TO THE GENTILES

13:46 b;

but seeing you

( The Jews )

put it from you,

( Reject The Word of God )

and

judge yourselves

unworthy of Everlasting Life,

see,

we turn to the Gentiles.”

That is the situation.

SPIRITUALLY LOST,

CHRIST REJECTING

GOD The Father REJECTING

and

God’s Word

REJECTING JEWS’

ONLY HOPE is:

“NOT GIVING HEED

TO JEWISH FABLES

and

commandments of men,

that turn from the Truth.

( Titus 1:14 )”

In The New Testament

Bible Days,

God’s Word Says that

“The Jews”

TURNED from THE TRUTH”,

“put it from” themselves,

and

“REJECTED GOD’S TRUTH”

( by Rejecting GOD’S WORD )

and

judged themselves

“unworthy of Everlasting Life”.

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,

GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE,

“THE JEWS”,

WERE GIVEN GOD’S WORD

( “the Oracles of God”)

to PRESENT to THE WORLD,

seen in Romans 3:2;

“Much every way: chiefly,

because that to them”

( The Jewish Nation )

“were Committed

the Oracles of God.”

NONE of THE SUPPOSED

“PROMISES of GOD to ‘ISRAEL’

PERTAIN or APPLY to

“The NATURAL, NATIONAL

JEWISH NATION of ISRAEL”,

after

GOD GAVE THEM UP

and

CHOSE to COMMIT

The Oracles of God

to

The Lord’s New Testament

churches, containing

SAVED GENTILE

&

SAVED and CONVERTED JEWS,

with The Great Commission

to Preach God’s Words

TO ALL NATIONS. 

ALL NATURALLY BORN

JEWS AND GENTILES

ARE BORN SPIRITUALLY DEAD

and SPIRITUALLY LOST.

There is No One Righteous

( see also: Psalm 14:1-7)

Romans 3:9;

“What then? are we”

( Paul, a Jew was speaking here

of “The Jews”

being Better than The Gentiles ? )

“better than they ?”

( The Gentiles )

No, in no way:

because we have proved before

that both Jews and Gentiles,

  are all under sin;

10 As it is written,

( in Psalm 14:1-7)

There is none Righteous,

no, not one:

11 There is none that understands

( “SPIRITUALLY, because they/ we,

as members of The Human Race,

ARE ALL BORN SPIRITUALLY DEAD

and LOST FROM GOD ) ,

there is none that seeks after God.

12They are all gone out of the way,

they are together become unprofitable;

there is none that does good, no, not one.

13Their throat is an open sepulcher;

with their tongues they have used deceit;

the poison of asps is under their lips:

14Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

15Their feet are swift to shed blood:

16Destruction and misery are in their ways:

17And the way of peace have they not known:

18There is no fear of God before their eyes.

That Description is of

ALL HUMAN BEINGS.

ALL HUMAN BEINGS,

JEWS and GENTILES,

ARE NATURALLY BORN

SPIRITUALLY DEAD to GOD,

WHO IS AN ETERNAL SPIRIT.

The PROMISES

in The Old Testament

and

The New Testament to:

The Israel of God

are to

“GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE”,

CHOSEN to SALVATION,

Through The Blood of Jesus Christ

and

His Death, Burial

and

Resurrection from The Dead,

whether they are Jew or Gentile,

as God’s Sovereign Choice:

Romans 9:6;

“Not as though

The Word of God

has taken none effect.

Because they are not all Israel,

which are of Israel”.

MEANING ?

NOT ALL NATURAL BORN JEWS,

of THE NATION of ISRAEL,

ARE TO BE

SPIRITUALLY BORN AGAIN,

AS THE ETERNALLY CHOSEN

SPIRITUAL SEED of ABRAHAM,

WHICH IS:

“THE ( SPIRITUAL ) ISRAEL of GOD,

or as Paul said,

“they are not all Israel”,

meaning:

THE ETERNALLY CHOSEN

SPIRITUAL SEED of ABRAHAM,

WHO ARE:

“THE ( SPIRITUAL ) ISRAEL of GOD

as God’s Sovereign Choice:

THEN THE OTHERS:

“which are of Israel”

are

The NATURALLY BORN JEWS,

of THE NATION of ISRAEL,

who are Born as Sinners

and Left as Sinners,

ALSO:

as God’s Sovereign Choice.

God’s Sovereign Choice

is Illustrated in

Genesis 25:19-28 & Malachi 1:1-5;

where we see:

The Lord’s Love for Israel is to:

GOD’S SOVEREIGNLY CHOSEN

SPIRITUAL SEED;

GENESIS 25:19;

“And these are the generations of Isaac,

Abraham’s son: Abraham begat Isaac:

20 And Isaac was forty years old

when he took Rebekah to wife,

the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram,

the sister to Laban the Syrian.

21 And Isaac entreated the LORD for his wife,

because she was barren:

and the LORD was Entreated of him,

and Rebekah his wife conceived.

22 And the children struggled together within her;

and she said,

If it be so, why am I thus?

And she went to inquire of the LORD.

23 And the LORD Said to her,

Two nations are in your womb,

and

two manner of people

will be separated from your bowels;

and the one people will be stronger

than the other people;

and

the elder shall serve the younger.

24 And when her days to be delivered

were fulfilled,

behold,

there were twins in her womb.

25 And the first came out red,

all over like an hairy garment;

and they called his name Esau.

26 And after that came his brother out,

and his hand took hold on Esau’s heel;

and his name was called Jacob:

and

Isaac was three score years old

when she bore them.

27 And the boys grew:

and Esau was a cunning hunter,

a man of the field;

and

Jacob was a plain man,

dwelling in tents.

28 And Isaac loved Esau,

because he did eat of his venison:

but Rebekah loved Jacob.”

Malachi 1:1-5;

( see also: Romans 9:6-18)

1 ‘The burden of the Word of the LORD

to Israel by Malachi.

2 I have loved you, said the LORD.

Yet you say, Wherein have you loved us?

Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? said the LORD:

yet I loved Jacob,

3 And I hated Esau,

and laid his mountains and his heritage waste

for the dragons of the wilderness.

4 Whereas Edom said,

We are impoverished,

but we will return and build the desolate places;

thus said the LORD of Hosts,

They will build, but I Will Throw Down;

and they will call them,

The border of wickedness,

and,

The people against whom

the LORD has Indignation Forever.

5 And your eyes shall see, and you will say,

The LORD will be Magnified

from the border of Israel.”

AND YET, FOR THOSE

WHO ARE GOD’S CHOSEN

SPIRITUAL PEOPLE,

“ISRAEL”,

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN

“SPIRITUALLY

BORN AGAIN JEWS”

and

“SPIRITUALLY

BORN AGAIN GENTILES”:

“There is neither Jew nor Greek,

there is neither bond nor free,

there is neither male nor female:

for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Galatians 3:28

“Where there is

neither Greek nor Jew,

circumcision nor uncircumcision,

Barbarian, Scythian,

bond nor free:

but Christ is All, and in all.”

Colossians 3:11.

I understand the concern for

“The Natural Nation of Israel”

and

would suggest our Brothers and Sisters

who Know The Lord:

PREACH JESUS TO THEM ! 

They are Spiritually Lost

and Dead in their Sins

AND IF YOU BELIEVE and TEACH

THAT

“JESUS CHRIST

WILL COME TO EARTH

AND TALK THEM INTO

BELIEVING THE GOSPEL HIMSELF,

PERSONALLY”,

The Following Sober,

God-Honoring, Study,

EXPLAINING THE BIBLE’S OWN

METHODS of INTERPRETING,

“ISRAEL”

MAY DELIVER YOU

FROM SERVING SATAN

when you

STOP PREACHING

SATAN’S FALSE GOSPEL.

“NOT GIVING HEED

TO JEWISH FABLES”

(Titus 1:13, 14).

1:13 “This Witness is True.

Therefore rebuke them sharply,

that they may be Sound in the Faith;

1:14 “Not giving heed to Jewish fables,

and

commandments of men,

that turn from the Truth.”


 

     Jewish fables (literally, myths)

are no new thing.

Paul has plainly warned the Household of Faith

not to give heed to Jewish fables

( and saying literally, Jewish myths).

Paul has not given us a list

of those grievous heresies;

but it is well known that the one

that was most fondly cherished,

and

that constituted the gravest menace

to the Truth of the Gospel,

was the notion that the Leading Purpose

of the Mission of the Coming Messiah,

WHEN JESUS CAME to EARTH the First Time,

would be

the “reconstitution of the Jewish nation”

and “the elevation of the Jewish nation”

to the highest pinnacle

of earthly dominion and glory;

for that fatuous doctrine

was the cornerstone of orthodox Judaism

in Paul’s day;

and

because of Paul’s sturdy opposition to it

he was persecuted,

his enemies plotted to take his life,

and

he was sent a prisoner to Rome.

No wonder that,

during the term of his imprisonment there,

Paul wrote to Titus

God’s Plain-Spoken Warning

against “Jewish fables.”

    …

Such being the case,

we question if there be anything

in all the long history of Christianity

that is more difficult to account for

than the fact that that particular fable,

concerning this supposed

Purpose of Christ’s mission to the Jewish people,

has become the central feature

of a system of doctrine which,

in the 20th and 21st century of our era,

has found numerous and zealous advocates

amongst “orthodox Christians”.

In view of this extraordinary phenomenon,

it is surely suitable and appropriate for those

who take the Holy Scriptures for their Guide

and Instructor in

All Matters of Faith and Doctrine,

to search them with the utmost care

“whether these things be so.”

This volume

“The Hope of

(‘National’)

Israel:
What Is It?”

(1922)

By  Philip Mauro

and

God’s Plain-Spoken Warning

against “Jewish fables”

is the result of a painstaking investigation

of that important question.

     …

The investigation of that question

leads inevitably to the subject of the Millennium;

and it is believed the reader will find,

in the last chapter of the present volume,

something fresh

upon that subject of perennial interest.

*****

“This Witness is True.

Therefore rebuke them sharply,

that they may be Sound in the Faith”

“This Witness is true”,

….

The apostle confirms what the poet had said;

he knew it to be fact from his own experience,

and by the observation he had made

when in the island:

he does not say,

that all that Epimenides had said,

in the poem referred to, was true;

but this character,

which he had given of the Cretians,

and which he cites, and uses to a good purpose;

from whence it may be observed,

that the writings of the Heathen poets

may be read with profit,

and be used to advantage,

if carefully and prudently attended to;

for what is truth, let it come from whom,

or by what means it will, ought to be received.

“Therefore rebuke them sharply”,

Not merely upon the testimony of the poet,

but upon the confirmation of it

by the Apostle;

and

not because of these general

and national characters,

but because these things personally

and

particularly belonged

to the persons before described;

whom the apostle would have rebuked,

both for their bad principles,

teaching things that they ought not;

and

for their immoralities,

their lying and deceit,

their intemperance, luxury, and idleness,

things very unbecoming the Christian Name;

And therefore

since their offenses

were of an heinous nature,

and they lived in them,

and were hardened and obstinate,

and were likely to have

a bad influence on others,

they must be rebuked

“sharply”:

Rebukes ought to be given

according to the nature of offenses,

and

the circumstances of them,

and the offenders;

some are to be given privately,

others publicly;

some should be reproved

with gentleness and meekness,

and

be used in a tender and compassionate way;

others more roughly,

though never in a wrathful

and passionate manner,

yet with some degree of severity,

at least with great plainness and faithfulness;

laying open the nature of the evils guilty of

in all their aggravated circumstances,

without sparing them in the least;

doing, as surgeons do by wounds,

though they take the knife, and use it gently,

yet cut deep, to the quick,

and

go to the bottom of the wound,

and lay it open:

and so the phrase may be rendered here,

“rebuke them cuttingly”;

cut them to the quick, and spare them not;

deal not with them as Eli with his sons, 1 Samuel 2:23

but speak out, and expose their crimes,

severely reprove them, that others may fear:

and

“that they may be

Sound in the Faith”

That they may be recovered from their errors,

to the Acknowledgment of the Truth;

that they may receive

the Sound Doctrine of Faith,

the Wholesome Words of Jesus Christ,

and

speak the things which become them,

and

use sound speech,

which cannot be condemned;

and

that they may be

turned from their evil practices,

and appear to be Sound, as in the Doctrine,

so in the Grace of Faith;

or that that by their works

may appear to be Genuine,

True, and Unfeigned;

and

that they may be Strong and Robust,

  and SPIRITUALLY Healthy,

and not weak and sickly

in the Profession of their Faith.

Rebukes being to persons

infected with bad principles and practices,

like physic to sickly constitutions,

a means of removing the causes of disorder;

and in rebukes, admonitions, and censures,

this always ought to be the end proposed,

the good of the persons rebuked,

admonished, and censured.

Titus 1:14

“Not giving heed to Jewish fables,

and commandments of men,

that turn from the Truth.”

“Not giving heed to Jewish fables”,

….

Concerning:

God Himself, the Angels,

and the Creation of man;

Concerning:

 the Giving of the Law at Mount Sinai;

 …

Concerning:

the Messiah and His Earthly Kingdom,

and

Concerning:

the Feast that Will be Made

for the Righteous in His Days,

which will consist of flesh, fish, and fowl,

Behemoth, Leviathan, and Zuz,

and of wine kept in the grape

from the Foundation of the World;

and

Concerning:

 the rolling of the dead

through the caverns of the Earth

at the Resurrection,

with a multitude of other things

which were traditionally received.

“And commandments of men:”

The traditions of the elders,

with which the Jews

had charged the Disciples of Christ with

regarding

“the transgression of

The traditions of the elders;

and

JESUS CHRIST,

on the other hand,

Very Justly Reproached the Jews

with breaking the Commands of God,

when The Jews were attending to the

“The traditions of the JEWISH elders”,

RATHER THAN

“The Commands of God”,

in Matthew 15:1 & 2

WHERE JESUS TELLS THEM in

Matthew 15:3:

“But He”

( JESUS )

“Answered and Said to them”

( The Jews ),

“Why do you also

transgress

the Commandment of God

by your tradition ?”

These were the laws

and traditions of the fathers,

which the Apostle Paul was brought up in,

and was zealous of, before his conversion,

Acts 22:3

and which these judaizing preachers

and professors,

he here has respect to, were fond of,

though they were made by men,

that turn from the Truth;

or “hate it”, as the Syriac version renders it;

who were enemies unto it,

as Hillell and Shammai,

the heads of the traditional doctors,

and as the Jews,

and their Rabbins in general were;

and

therefore their commandments, of all men,

should not be given heed to,

by those that bear the Christian name.
