Every believer must keep God’s law and act according to His will.
As we know in the history of God, the law was given to Adam, the first person, to be free to eat the fruit from the tree of life but not the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gn 2:16-17). Later at the time of Noah, Noah’s second son was cursed because he sinned by revealing his father’s nakedness, just as Adam hid after eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and realized his own nakedness (Gn 9:20-27).
Until Moses, the descendant of Abraham, received the law from God (Law of Moses), the previous eras of Adam, Noah, and Abraham did not have any appointed rules to abide by. The law was first set through the Law of Moses. Imagine the time when there was no law – I imagine people were living like wild animals in the mountains and rivers.
However, as seen in Hebrews 9 ~ 10, even the Law of Moses was not perfect. Jesus came later and declared the Free Law. This Free Law was the truth, and this truth was the word of God, the holy scriptures. That is why Jesus said in John 1 that regardless of physical descent, those who are born of God become children of God. Furthermore, to the Jews in John 8, Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
It is written in James 2:12 that all are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, and in Revelation 20:12 that people are judged according to what they have done as recorded in the books (Bible) (Jn 12:48).
In His 6,000 years of history, God made a covenant in every era and that very covenant was the law. Heaven was taken away from Physical Israel because they did not keep the Law of Moses or the Old Testament during the first coming of Jesus (Refer to Mt 21). After this, Spiritual Israel was created through Jesus. However, because Spiritual Israel failed to keep the New Testament that was passed down for 2,000 years, it comes to an end at the time of Revelation’s fulfillment, the Second Coming, and the promised New Spiritual Israel begins (Rv 6, 7).
The beginning of this New Spiritual Israel has been prophesied from the time of the Old Testament (Jer 31:27). According to the prophecy, Jesus sowed God’s seed during the First Coming (Mt 13). This is the nation that has been created by harvesting and sealing the ripe fruits of the seed that was sown at the proper time (Rv 7, 14). They are the children born of God’s seed, the people purchased by the blood of Jesus and set free from sin (Rv 1:5-6, 5:9-10, 7:14), the 12 tribes of God’s new nation, and new people, created after the end of Spiritual Israel.
Therefore the 12 tribes are a promised people created through the word. The purpose of God in Revelation, which is the new covenant Jesus made with his blood, is the new nation of the 12 tribes born of God’s seed. Because this was the promise of the new covenant, this nation is the promised new nation.
This work has been God’s work and purpose. This is the place where God, the heavens, and Jesus come to dwell, as recorded in Revelation 3 (Rv 3:12). Anyone who is outside of this new nation of the 12 tribes is merely a person of the world, not a person of heaven or God.
※ In the actual events that took place by era, Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses all had family genealogies. However, the family genealogies of Jesus and the disciples of Spiritual Israel are not made known. The family of New Spiritual Israel must keep this in mind as they work.
