ISHRAEL?

There are some inconsistencies I see in the world. So many people, say one thing and do the opposite.

I have been part of the Jewish world since the 1984, and have been watching as the world and people have changed. There are some things that bother me, but it was not until a few days ago, that I realized this issue.

“Children of Jacob” does not Equal “Jews”(Judah the Tribe) which does not equal “Judaism”(Religion), and none of these Equal ISRAEL(Chosen not the land). Strange but true!

Jacob is a Family Group that includes Judah(Jews), yet it seems that the Jews do not want to be included in Jacob, and few of Jacob or Judah are included in ISRAEL.

So you are Jewish, but are you of Israel? Ishrael?

This question is Not A Joke, and you should be concerned about your status.

Know that the GOD Of Our Fathers, did choose them and they CHOSE HIM. In the same way we are to choose HIM. Moses tried to let us this many times. Here is an example:

Deuteronomy 9:
4 Speak not thou in thy heart, after that the LORD thy God hath thrust them out from before thee, saying: ‘For my righteousness the LORD hath brought me in to possess this land’; whereas for the wickedness of these nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee.
5 Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thy heart, dost thou go in to possess their land; but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that He may establish the word which the LORD swore unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
6 Know therefore that it is not for thy righteousness that the LORD thy God giveth thee this good land to possess it; for thou art a stiffnecked people.
7 Remember, forget thou not, how thou didst make the LORD thy God wroth in the wilderness; from the day that thou didst go forth out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD.”

In this example there are four times we are told that it is not our Righteousness or uprightness of heart, that is the cause of us receiving the Promised Land. It is because of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and The LORD’S WORD, that we are here.

Deuteronomy 4 is filled with commands to Keep/DO/Obey the LAWS of OUR GOD, do not forget but always do HIS LAW. This Chapter starts out with “1 And now, O Israel, hearken unto the statutes and unto the ordinances,”

Moses at the command of The LORD, strives to get through to us that we have been given many gifts because of the actions of our fathers(Abraham, Isaac and Jacob). For Example again in “Deuteronomy 4:
33 Did ever a people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?
34 Or hath God assayed to go and take Him a nation from the midst of another nation, by trials, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before thine eyes?
35 Unto thee it was shown, that thou mightest know that the LORD, He is God; there is none else beside Him.
36 Out of heaven He made thee to hear His voice, that He might instruct thee; and upon earth He made thee to see His great fire; and thou didst hear His words out of the midst of the fire.
37 And because He loved thy fathers, and chose their seed after them, and brought thee out with His presence, with His great power, out of Egypt, . . . . “

So what is the problem?, you may ask. We are blessed because of our fathers. So?

The “SO” is that because of them you have greater evidence that The LORD OUR GOD is GOD, which is to help you KNOW that we are to act righteously by keeping HIS LAWS, HIS COVENANTS, HIS TEACHINGS. But, we refuse. We want to do everything BUT what HE COMMANDS.

The down side of all of this is: We don’t get out(disappear) from the face of the earth. We are still here, while many peoples do not exist anymore. We are a sign to the world, as powerful as everything that our Fathers witnessed even unto THIS VERY DAY. Yet, it seems that we think we can mouth some words and bow at times and things will continue as they have. We will still be “CHOSEN”.

That is where the problem really comes to your door. CHOSEN? ISRAEL? ISHAEL? IN or OUT?

Chosen has a few meanings I am going to use here: 1) You are the ones that were chosen. 2) You are the one that Has chosen. 3) Both sides did chose then other side. In that You chose GOD and HE chose You. The last one is demonstrated in “Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine; 6 and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.’” [In the TORAH between the two sticks(scroll) the word is ישראל which is commonly written Israel, but it also read ISHRAEL or ISHRA EL(Governed of GOD or GOD GOVERNS)] This example requires you to chose to do something and then do it. THEN you are HIS treasured people from among ALL of the peoples.

While we are descendants from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we are ONLY ISHRAEL when we have Chosen THE LORD OUR GOD.

So what is the chance of this getting through to anyone? What I am presenting here is not new, for the LORD via HIS prophets, including Moses has been telling Us. We have not been listening or not even wanting to hear. We need to understand this now.
The Odds of someone listening?

One of a city and two of a family?

Those are terrible odds. One of a city and two of a family!

There is a separation between ISHRAEL and Jacob! Example:
Isaiah 10:
20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and they that are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
והיה ביום ההוא, לא-יוסיף עוד שאר ישראל
ופליטת בית-יעקב, להשען, על-מכהו; ונשען,
על-יהוה קדוש ישראל–באמת.

In verse 20 I see a separation of Ishrael and Jacob very clearly. For here ISRAEL is included in Jacob and Jacob is included in ISHRAEL but NOT ALL. There is a big difference between Ishrael and Jacob. Yes it is shown throughout the Tanakh, this difference. So what does it mean?

You must chose, but chose wisely. If you do not know enough to chose, seek, get help, but don’t wait. Time is all but gone. The Last Day is within the life times of those alive now.

My prayer is that The LORD grant you eyes that see, ears that hear and an understanding heart, then you return unto HIM soon!(Isaiah 6: 9 And He said: ‘Go, and tell this people: hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they, seeing with their eyes, and hearing with their ears, and understanding with their heart, return, and be healed.’)

One can choose or reject GOD as in

18 And he said unto the children of Israel:
‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all the kingdoms that oppressed you.
19 But ye have this day rejected your God, who Himself saveth you out of all your calamities and your distresses; and ye have said unto Him: Nay, but set a king over us. Now therefore present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes, and by your thousands.’

Israel/Ishrael == Chosen, Land, Alternate Name of Jacob, the State of Israel, A People being or having Chosen, The Children of Israel/Ishrael. The (GOD)King Of Israel and the LIVING GOD Of ISRAEL.(ISHRAEL)
