Who are the Children of Yisrael?

Many people have a hard time coming to grips with straight-forward scripture as they wrongly believe that there is some separation between Yisrael - YaHuWaH's people, and believers who were once Gentiles
Most Christians even refer to themselves as Gentile believers (yet Scripture does not support this line of thinking) and they subsequently ignore all scripture referring to Yisrael as 'only for the Jews.' Scripture makes it clear that there is ONE TORAH (Law) for the Israelite and the same for the one joining themselves with His people.

Isaiah Chapter 56 Verses 6 - 8 states:

"Also the sons of the foreigner, who join themselves to YaHuWaH, to serve Him, and to love the Name of YaHuWaH, to be His servants, all who guard the Sabbath, and not profane it, and hold fast to My Covenant - them I shall bring up to my set-apart mountain, and let them rejoice in My house of prayer."

The 'Renewed Covenant' confirms this prophecy that those who join to YaHuWaH are called His children: the Children of Yisrael.

Because of the lack of understanding of the fact that YaHuWaH's commandments are for ALL His people and that there is no distinction between Jew or Gentile, Christianity has excluded itself from being called the Children of YaHuWaH through disobedience to His Torah.

The 'Children of Yisrael' are any beings who observe the Torah of YaHuWaH no matter where they live. It is not so much a religion, but rather a relationship and a society or community.

If we go back further and look at the name 'Israel' or 'Yisrael' in paleo pictograph Hebrew we can see a much clearer picture

The Hebrew letters for Yisrael (from right to left) are as follows:

Y - Yod S - Sin R - Resh A - Aleph L - Lamed

In Hebrew Pictograph they look like this below. Each picture has a meaning.

 Yod - Right arm

 Sin - Thorn, authority, shield, protect

 Resh - Man, head, top, beginning, family, first, raise

Aleph - Ox - All Powerful One, strong powerful leader

 Lamed - Shepherd, staff, teach, yoke, bind to

So it could read:

The Right Arm (Yahushua) protects man through the strength of the All Powerful One and teaches and guides them to go the Right Way.

Or we could say that the 'Children of Yisrael' are:

Those who choose to believe in (be faithful to) the Right Arm (Yahushua) and are protected and brought into the family of the All Powerful One (YaHuWaH) and who bind / yoke themselves to Him by walking in His Ways / directions (His Commands) in the Torah (Instructions).

Revelation confirms this:

Revelation Chapter  14 Verse 12

"Here is the endurance of the set-apart ones, here are those guarding the Commands of YaHuWaH and the belief of Yahushua."

So you see it is not about being Jewish or Gentile its about a relationship with the Most High - The Almighty YaHuWaH. Those who love Him keep His Commands (John 14 v 15) as laid down in Torah (the first 5 books of Scripture)

~ Yahushua kept Torah as did the disciples and the early believers ~

Are you a child of Yisrael?
