"The Two Becomes One"

“The Two Becomes One”

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is the law of commandments contained in ordinances so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Ephesians 2:14-18

The Apostle Paul emphasizes four ways in which the Jewish and Gentile believers are brought together in PEACE to form one body. 1. The two are brought together by Jesus Christ. 2. They then are made ONE, though they are Jew and Gentile. 3. In this one body, both become reconciled, and the middle wall of separation, the enmity, is abolished. And 4. Both Jew and Gentile brought together as one body, through the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE of Jesus Christ on the cross, has been provided access by one Spirit to Father God.

That ONE BODY makes-up the Church, the body of Christ. The Gentiles who were once afar off and the Jews who were near, those Gentiles and Jews who are TRUE BELIEVERS in the Lord Jesus Christ, are the CHURCH or the BODY of Christ, who being a Jew, gave His life for ALL mankind, Jew and Gentile.

A Gentile is anyone who is NOT a Jew. The Jewish people are a special people, they are the nationality that God CHOSE to bring the SAVIOR, the Lord Jesus Christ, into this world, and they were CHOSEN to spread the GOOD NEWS of SALVATION throughout the world. There are some Jews who have ACCEPTED Jesus Christ as their SAVIOR and Lord, they are known as Messianic Jews. They are part of the TRUE BELIEVERS, and then ALL the rest of the different nationalities, the Gentiles, who have accepted Jesus Christ as their SAVIOR and Lord, are the other part of the TRUE BELIEVERS, and they come together through Christ, to make up the BODY of Jesus Christ, the CHURCH. They are able to be partakers in fellowship with the Father and the Son, because of their SHARED relationship with God, which was made possible through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, on the cross. If you, whether, you are Jew or Gentile, have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, through the blood of Jesus Christ, you are NOT a part of the BODY of Christ, nor a part of the Church, and you do not possess the ACCESS to God that you need to be able to have ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven. You must come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a part of the BODY of Jesus Christ, the Church, and receive the HOPE of Heaven. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
