“Master Of The Universe!”

August 14, 2008
   KEY SCRIPTURE

Rom. 2:10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is no respect of persons with God. 12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; 13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

Rom. 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: 30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. 31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

Why did Jesus sayye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews (Jhn. 4:22).” Let’s begin with God’s prophecy – Gen. 3:15: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Some interpret this passage to suggest that Eve is carrying two seeds, Cain for the Serpent and Abel for Adam, by a process called heteropaternal superfecundation! Well, let’s examine Gen. 4:1, where it reads “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. 2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.”

So, what do the “seeds” represent? Seeds are produced by the “trees”, the one of life (Jesus – Php. 1:11; Prv. 11:30) and the one of knowledge of good and evil (Serpent – Rev. 12:9; Jhn. 8:44), and represents the “Christ (Gal. 3:16)” vs. the “viper’s brood (Mat. 3:7)”. Tts. 1:15 reads “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. 16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny Him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”

Next, let’s go to Noah’s prophecy – Gen. 9:26-27: “And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servantGod shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.” That blessing is the salvation that Jesus is speaking of in (Jhn. 4:22)! History (Gen. 10) has shown that the Canaanite civilization “served” as the forerunner/template for the Shemites’ (Gen. 12:1-4), which was enlarged by Japheth (Isa. 45; King James Bible). Imagine the talents of African-Americans being “discovered” by Jewish agents, who then delivers the talent to Gentile managers. Obviously this scenario is NOT the only one imaginable; it’s only used to illuminate the prophecy!

The greater point to be made is that each of the three sons of Noah still play a seminal role in The Master’s promise to insure “all families of the earth be blessed (Gen. 12:4).” In the KEY SCRIPTURE, Paul details how “there is no respect of persons with God”, and that “a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law” The Apostle also stated that “it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.” Peter adds, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (II Pet. 3:9).” Since the Flood of Noah, we all are to: “seek the Kingdom(Mat. 6:33); “be saved(Rom. 10:9); “study(II Tim. 2:15); “baptize(Mat. 28:19); and “enter the gates(Rev. 22:14) where the Master of the Universe resides!
