CHRISTIAN MEDIA RESEARCH - Exposing apostacy and more within the Christian church


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.
