There are examples in scripture which show how complex our Bible can be. We will use Peter and Paul as examples starting with Paul's writing in Galatians. "But when Peter was come to Antioch I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation." (Gal.2:11-13)  A clear example of how hard it was for even the apostles to break the religious bondage of Judaism.  It was so bad that Peter could not break bread with his own Gentile converts in the presence of Jews insomuch that he was afraid of confrontation. God was making a change, but Judaism would not give up without a fight! 

     The change God was making involved the dissolving of NATURAL ISRAEL and the birthing of a SPIRITUAL ISRAEL. "And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God".(Gal.6:16)  It goes on even today, preachers putting focus on natural Israel instead of God's real people; The Spiritual Israel Of God !
Here's the revelation: scripture says God made promises to Abraham and to one seed only that being Isaac .We know Isaac's birth was supernatural and is the beginning of the SEED that cannot be stopped! Isaac gives birth to Jacob who overcomes the flesh and is awarded a brand new name ISRAEL. The Hebrew meaning of Israel is; "he who is a Prince and Prevails with God". Now we have the fulfillment of the unstoppable seed; JESUS the true Prince and Great Prevailing One he is the Head of Israel and the Remnant who sprang from the same original seed, we are the body of The Israel of God!  Thank You Jesus!! 

     In another place Peter is writing concerning Paul's epistles. "As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures unto their own destruction". (IIPet. 3:16)  We are in a great time period in the things of God. To the hungry God is offering ABSOLUTE TRUTH. We have had in times past "some truth" some of us progressed on to another level "more truth" but now to the passionate truth lover God is freely giving ABSOLUTE TRUTH with nothing being held back. This truth is explained in St. Jn. fifteen; if we are faithful in the vine we bring forth "fruit". If we allow pruning we bring forth "more fruit". For the Remnant ( free from the systems of men) "...He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth "much fruit" ..." (St. Jn. 15:5)  Can you see 3-levels of growth?

     Modern Bible teachers fail both the Holy Ghost (who is our Spirit Teacher) and their students. It is our responsibility as Paul taught Timothy to "rightly divide". Only God knows how many scriptures are taught out of context and written to a specific people who may or may not be us!  I'll close with this; "For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself "(Heb. 9:26)  If this statement is literal and Jesus came at the end of the world you and I have no hope. Here's the revelation: the world he was bringing to an end was the Jews world which revolved around temple worship and sacrifices. Yes Judaism came to an abrupt end, however, most other translations say Jesus came at the end of the AGE. I agree; the age of the Law of Moses is now History, and the new age of the Messianic Kingdom of God began when Jesus said "It is Finished"!  Praise His Name !
