Characteristics of a Bastard

Updated: Jul 5, 2021


Since the beginning, it is crystal clear that the LORD of hosts made a covenant with Abraham's seed to be a holy nation unto himself. This initiation with God was established with Abraham, confirmed through His son Isaac, and reaffirmed through Isaac’s son Jacob (renamed Israel) and his seed forever. During our earliest captivity in Egypt our forefather Moses made a declarative statement to Pharoah. Saying, Israel is my son, even my firstborn; therefore, let my people go. This is absolutely clear, plain and direct. Moses never said this to the Jebusites, Amorites, Hittites, Moabites, Edomites, Hivites, Perizzites, Ishmaelites, Canaanites or the dusty Zidonians. The bewitching of pagan Christianity needs to stop the foolishness. GOD reaffirmed with Moses what was already established with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob NOT the whole world. Reading on. Other scriptural references to support the separatist nature of God's covenant with Israel are as follows:

God's Faithfulness to Israel

In the book of Hosea the first chapter, GOD used the life and marriage of Hosea to deliver a powerful and noteworthy message to the Northern Kingdom of Israel regarding their unfaithfulness. Whereas, GOD told Hosea to take a wife of whoredoms. Let's pause here for a moment, my goodness; I mean Hosea was a Prophet. For certain Hosea foreknew that a whore is a deep ditch. Nevertheless, did Hosea complain, asked questions or argued with GOD? NO! He obeyed and took to wife Gomer; a whore, who had three children unto him: Jezreel, Loruhamah and Loammi. For the Northern Kingdom of Israel went off into idolatry to serve other gods after the spilt under King Solomon.

Hosea's wife Gomer was symbolic to the unfaithfulness and betrayal God felt by Israel's infidelity. Did the LORD cast away his people due to their infidelity? NO! Unlike you other nations whose gods are idols, we have the Holy One of Israel who's merciful and longsuffering to usward. This, however, isn't the end of the story or relationship. In these last days, God promised that if His people would return to Him and seek his face. He would be faithful to always forgive them and welcome them back into His loving arms. Let's get some witnesses.

So even though Jesus Christ, the Black Messiah, had not yet come to redeem Israel from those that hate us. The heavenly Father was already using the symbolism of a broken marriage and relationship to communicate with His people, who He loved.

To his Holy Ones, it's obvious throughout the scriptural narrative, God has pursued His people with a relentless passion for He had made an everlasting covenant with their forefathers. Sin may have ruined any chance of intimacy with the Father, but God had a plan for redemption and a means to restore a broken relationship.

Enter Christ - the BLACK MESSIAH

The Bride of CHRIST

Christ lived a perfect life when he walked this earth. As he lived, he spoke openly to the world, taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, where the Jews frequently visited. A Lamb of God, perfect and unblemished lay down his life for a specific group of people he called friends and those friends where of the nation of Israel. NOT all nations. After his resurrection, Christ became the living embodiment of the bridegroom and a faithful husband who willing gave His life for the people, nation and world He so loved. A sacrifice of a sweet-smelling savour in the nostrils of the heavenly Father.


THE APOSTLE PAUL

  • This church is the Bride of Christ and it's not one specific church building or denomination but the entire body of believers throughout the ages. Who are they? The Israelites for they have received the oracles of God in the wilderness by the hand of Moses.

  • There are several analogies that Paul used when he gave instructions to the saints that lived in Rome, Corinth and Ephesus about marriage, saying:


Ephesians 5:22-25

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Christ the BRIDEGROOM

What is a bridegroom?

  • A bridegroom is a man who has just married or is about to be married.

The woman is the church and Christ is the bridegroom. Just as there was a betrothal period practiced by our forefathers during which the bride and groom were separated until the wedding. The bride of Christ is separated from her Bridegroom during this period of GRACE. Her responsibility during the betrothal period is to be faithful to Him. How? By keep the commandments.

The MARRIAGE

John, a friend and a disciple of Christ saw the New Jerusalem as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. In that day, the church shall be caught up to be united with the Bridegroom in a dramatic, eye-opening and spectacular series of events like never before. Other scriptural evidences to support this is the parable of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. Together at last and one with Christ. Whereas, the nations are going to be angry. A good reason why they were never invited to begin with. Can you imagine Christians, Apologetics and Theologians at his glorious appearing? They've hollered, profaned, screame
