The God of All Flesh
Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and His redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God – Isaiah 44:6
Israel is the alternate name of the patriarch Jacob, given to him after he wrestled with the angel at Bethel. It was also used as the name of the Hebrew nation. In Old Testament times constituted the “people of God”. Because of Jesus, the gentiles have been grafted in as the “people of God” or the “sons of God”.
God is the God of all humans, it started when He created Adam and Eve and their procreation of life to mankind. After the fall of Adam and Eve they were thrown out of the Garden of Eden and a Cherubim, and a flaming sword was placed in the Garden of Eden to keep the tree of life. A Cherub is an angel who takes on a particular form, like all angels they are spirit beings, but they can take on physical bodies. After they were thrown from the Garden, Adam and Eve had two sons, Abel and Cain. Cain murdered Abel because of jealousy; God accepted Abel’s offering and not Cain’s.
Originally God created man after His image, but after the fall of man, man reproduced man after his image. Adam reproduced a son by the name of Seth which produced the characteristic of his human father, and not the Spiritual father, God. From Adam to Noah were ten generations; as man begin to reproduce their hearts became wicked and it repented God that He had made man. Noah was a godly man and prior to destroying the earth, God instructed Noah to build an ark for him and his family, certain animals and fowls. Because of Noah’s obedience, he and his family was saved from the water that destroyed the earth and everything that was in the earth including mankind and animals.
The first blood sacrifice is when God made tunics for Adam and Eve to cover their nakedness. The second sacrifice is when Noah and his family left the ark after the water was abated from the earth. Prior to going into the ark, God instructed Noah to take seven of clean beast, male and female. Every unclean beast two of each, male and female, this is how he was able to make the sacrifice after the water destroyed everything. God didn’t have two of the same kind, but different gender to procreate different species of animals and fowls on earth, male and female (Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by seven, the male and female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and female ( Genesis 7:2).
Noah reproduced sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth and they too reproduced, by their generation and the nations were divided after the flood. The language was one dialect until they tried to build a tower to heaven and God changed their language (Go to, let us go down, and therefore confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech – Genesis 11:7). As their language were different they left and went into different countries (Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there counfounded the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth – Genesis 11:9). As they went into different countries they also served other gods.
Abram who was later called Abraham was a man whom God considered his faith as righteousness was called to leave his father and family (Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee- Genesis 12:1) Adam’s family practiced idolatry, so God had him to leave his family in order to make him a father of righteousness. Adam reproduced Isaac, Isaac married Rebekah and different nations were born (And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb,and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger – Genesis 25:23).
As the nations grew each nation served different gods and were separated from the God that created them (Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt – 2nd Kings 17:29). It’s one God that created all mankind, and its man who created the god they wanted to serve. There is one God that created all nations and have been instructed to serve Him according to His written word.
Originally salvation came to the Jews, through Jesus, the Son of God which was the third blood sacrifice, but because they rejected the Son of God, those that have accepted salvation along with the regeneration of the heart are the spiritual Jews (But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God – Romans 2:29). A spiritual Jew is for every nation that is willing to submit themselves to the written Word of God, no other way can one enter into heaven, but through the submission to God’s written Word.
