Israel Order:

Israel Order God the Father started this order. Abraham was called and his name was changed. Jacob was chosen to form a nation and his name was changed to Israel. Israel was shadow of Kingdom of God. Judges came and kings ruled the nation. David was anointed and chosen to establish the Kingdom. Jesus was born from David line. Salvation for mankind came through Jews. This order came up to John the Baptist. It ended on the Cross. Jew or Gentile Jesus is the only way to kingdom of God and to Heaven. About Abraham: Father: Terah (Gen. 11:26) Spouses : Sarah, Hagar, and Keturah (Gen. 11:29; 16:3; 25:1) Sons : From Hagar: Ishmael. From Sarah: Isaac. From Keturah : Zimran , Jokshan , Medan, Midian , Ishbak , and Shuah (Gen. 25:2) Brothers : Nahor and Haran (Gen. 11:26) Sisters : Half sister was Sarah (Gen. 20:12) Meaning of his name : Abram, meaning “exalted father,” to that of Abraham, meaning “father of a multitude” (Gen. 17:5-6). Frequency of his name : Referred to 307 times Occupation : Patriarch Place of birth : Ur of the Chaldees (Gen. 11:31) Place of death : Near Hebron in Canaan (Gen. 23:19; 25:9) Age at death : 175 (Gen. 25:7) Important fact about his life : He was the father of the Hebrew nation and the ultimate role model for faith “Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away”. 2 Corinthians 3:15-16 1 October 2011 5 Israel Order

Abraham’s Calvary (Gen. 22:1-19):

The order — Abraham was tested by God, who ordered him to offer up Isaac as a burnt sacrifice on Mt. Moriah . The obedience – Displaying great obedience, Abraham prepared to carry out this command. The ordeal - Taking two servants and Isaac, he started for Mt. Moriah . Upon arriving, he instructed the servants to remain at the base of the mountain. The optimism - In spite of his pain, Abraham showed great faith in his final words to the servants: “Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you” (Gen. 22:5). By these words the servants understood that both he and his son would return from the mountain. Abraham’s Calvary (Gen. 22:1-19) Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied. “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.” Genesis 22:10-12 Now I know, “I have to send my Son Jesus” – God the Father Do I have to? 1 October 2011 6 Israel Order

Abraham's Entrance into Canaan:

Abraham's Entrance into Canaan Each stage describes a particular and unique period of time in God’s progressive revelation to man. Abraham had set out from Ur in search of a land where he could build a nation free from idolatry, not knowing where he would end up (Hebrews 11:8). Haran, about 600 miles northwest of Ur and 400 miles northeast of Canaan, was Abraham's first stopping place. 1 October 2011 8 Israel Order

Creation to Present time:

Abraham is more important to God than the universe. It is being only fair to an author to place the emphasis where he places it. The first 11 chapters cover a minimum of 2000 years. From chapter 12 to chapter 50 (39 chapters) the time is 350 years. Creation to Present time 1 October 2011 9 Israel Order

Slide 10:

The important men who appear during this stage are Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and Job. Abraham is considered to be the second of the seven greatest men who ever lived. These are: Adam, Abraham, Moses, David, John the Baptist, Peter, and Paul. This stage spans a period of some 350 years. Here a city is destroyed on the plains (Sodom) and a boy is spared on a mountain (Isaac) (Gen. 19, 22). Here a son (Jacob) deceives his father (Isaac) and is later himself deceived by his sons (brothers of Joseph). Jerusalem (a type of the heavenly) and Egypt (a type of the worldly) are first mentioned in this stage (Gen. 13-14). Here the first of three great biblical covenants is introduced. The Abrahamic Covenant, promising a goodly land (Gen.15 ). The Davidic Covenant, promising a glorious king (2 Sam.7 ). The new covenant, promising a godly people (Jer. 31). The Patriarchal Stage (Genesis 12-50; Job)

Slide 11:

The four most important men during this stage are: Moses, Aaron, Caleb, and Joshua. The Exodus Stage covers a period of some 325 years. It includes the following key events: The captivity and deliverance of Israel from Egypt by Moses. The failure of Israel to enter the Promised Land because of unbelief. The appearance of the manna, the institution of the Sabbath (Ex. 16:23-30), and the giving of the Ten Commandments. The building of the tabernacle. The aimless wandering in the wilderness. The sin and death of Moses. The choice of Joshua as Israel’s new leader. We are told of a golden calf, a talking ass, and a bronze snake. Here Moses ascends to the pleasures of heaven (Ex. 33) while Korah descends to the pits of hell (Num. 16). The Exodus Stage Books covered: Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy

Slide 12:

The three most important individuals in this stage are Joshua, Caleb, and Rahab . It covers a period of about twenty-five years. The book describes the invasion, conquest, and settlement of Palestine by the nation Israel. The book of Joshua is the counterpart of Exodus. Exodus records how God led his people out of the land of bondage, while Joshua tells us how he led his people into the land of blessing. Moses summarizes both books in Deuteronomy 6:23: “And he brought us out from there, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he swore to give unto our fathers.” In Exodus God had parted the waters of the Red Sea to bring his people out of Egypt. Now in Joshua he will part the waters of the Jordan River to bring his people into Canaan. God performs whatever is necessary to assure both the exit and entrance of his people . In this stage we see the salvation of a harlot from the town of Jericho ( Rahab ) and the condemnation of a Hebrew from the tribe of Judah ( Achan ). Joshua records the twin miracles of the falling walls and a standing sun. The Conquest Stage (Joshua)

Slide 13:

This stage records the saddest and most sordid period in the entire history of Israel. It is the dark ages of that nation. The book spans a period of some 300 years . Important names in this period would include Gideon, Samson, Naomi, Ruth, Boaz, Eli, and Samuel. The following two outlines have been suggested which summarize the Judges Stage. Rebellion, retribution, repentance, and restoration (or) Sin, servitude, supplication, and salvation. Counting Eli and Samuel, there were fifteen judges in all. One was a woman, Deborah. These judges were not so much legal experts, as military reformers. The root of Israel’s problem was that when Joshua died, God could find no man to take his place as he did when Moses died. The statement, “ In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes,” is repeated on four separate occasions in the book of Judges. The fruit of Israel’s problems could be seen in her: Compromise—not doing what God told her to do, that is, to drive out the enemy. Apostasy—doing what God told her not to do, that is, to worship the gods of her enemies. In spite of all this God still loved Israel. In the Old Testament the angel of the Lord is mentioned eighty times. The Judges Stage (Judges; Ruth; 1 Samuel 1-7)

Slide 14:

This stage, covering a period of approximately 120 years , records the history of Israel’s first three kings. Each ruled for forty years. The kings are Saul, David, and Solomon. Most of Israel’s beautiful songs and words of wisdom were composed during this period. These would include: Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, and Ecclesiastes. The period begins with the selection of a ruler (Saul, 1 Sam. 9) and ends with the rejection of another ruler ( Rehoboam , 1 Ki . 12). It describes a fearless prophet (Nathan, 2 Sam. 12), and a faithful priest ( Zadok , 2 Sam. 15). The Ark of God on two occasions is carried to Jerusalem, once during a celebration (2 Sam. 6), and again during a revolution (2 Sam. 15). A heathen city becomes the Holy City (2 Sam. 5). Solomon is instructed (1 Ki . 2) and the Temple is constructed (1 Ki . 6). The United Kingdom Stage

Slide 15:

Divided Kingdom Stage 931- 605 B.C. This stage covers a period of around 325 years , from 930 b.c . to 605 b.c . The key events take place in Jerusalem and Samaria. The period begins with a tragic civil war which splits the nation Israel into two opposing kingdoms. The period ends with the capture of both these kingdoms by two enemy Gentile nations The chaotic stage would feature the following: One king (Josiah) discovering God’s Word in the Temple and another king ( Jehoiakim ) attempting to destroy it in the fire . The writing of at least twelve Old Testament books by eleven human authors. The second of two men who went to heaven without first dying (2 Ki . 2).

Slide 16:

Captivity stage Psalm 137 describes the beginning of this period, while Psalm 126 describes the end. Israel is cured of the sin of idolatry while in the city of idolatry. This historical period includes: Three men who wouldn’t bend or burn (Dan. 3). A review of Babylon’s greatest king (Nebuchadnezzar, Dan. 1-4) and a preview of Greece’s greatest king (Alexander the Great, Dan. 7:6; 8:5-8, 21, 22; 11:3, 4). A fight between a Persian ram and a Greek goat An aimless hand (of God) that wrote and a lifeless band (of men) that walked (Dan. 5; Ezek. 37). The only description of God the Father in the Bible (Dan. 7:9-14). Great prophecies revealed through the falling of a stone (Dan. 2) and the felling of a tree (Dan. 4). The second of three attempts to consolidate religion around an image (1) Genesis 11 (2) Daniel 3 (3) Revelation 13. The real story of when the Bear comes over the mountain (Ezek. 38-39). The future and final earthly temple (Ezek. 40-48). This era has more to say about the ministry of the heavenly cherubim than any other period (Ezek. 1, 10). This era has more to say about the ministry of the hellish antichrist than any other period (Dan. 7, 8, 9). Ezekiel denounces the materialistic city of Tyre ( ch . 26) and describes the millennial city of God ( ch . 48). Ezekiel begins by describing the removal of God’s glory cloud (Ezek. 10:18), and concludes by predicting the return of this glory cloud (Ezek. 43:2).

Slide 17:

The Return Stage This period describes Satan’s attempts to harass the Jews in Palestine (the book of Nehemiah) and hang them in Persia (the book of Esther). It covers the construction of the second Old Testament Temple, and the completion of the Old Testament canon. Its duration is approximately 140 years. It begins with the historical ministry of Ezra the scribe (Ezra 7:6-10), and ends with the prophetical ministry of Elijah the prophet (Mal. 4:5, 6). We read of the spirit-induced midnight mission of Nehemiah (Neh. 2) and the satanic-induced midnight mission of Haman (Est. 6). We are told of a plot against a pagan king (Est. 2:21-23) and one against the King of kings (Zech. 11:12, 13). This era includes the restoration of the feast of tabernacles (Neh. 8:13-18) and the institution of the feast of Purim (Est. 9:20-32). God had also promised that, after judgment, restoration would follow. And in 539 BC the Persian king Cyrus issued a decree that any Jews who wished to do so could return to Judah and rebuild their temple.

The 400 Years Between the Testaments :

The world of the New Testament is very different from that of the Old Testament. The changes that took place over four centuries affected every area of life. Many of these changes are interrelated. The 400 Years Between the Testaments Political and Cultural Changes The Romans, instead of the Persians, now control Palestine. Greek thought and culture (Hellenism), rather than the gods of the Canaanites such as Baal and Molech, now threaten to derail God's people. Geographical Changes Palestine is divided into Judea, Galilee, Samaria; on the east side of the Jordan River are Perea and the Decapolis. Language and Writings The common language in Palestine is no longer Hebrew but Aramaic. The language of commerce and communications throughout the Roman Empire is Greek. Religious Changes Religious parties: The parties of the Pharisees and Sadducees (as well as the political parties of the Zealots and Herodians) did not exist in the Old Testament. Religious functionaries: Teachers of the Law (“scribes”) and rabbis (teachers) play a prominent role. The chief priests as a group with its own identity is not found in the Old Testament. Religious institutions: The temple and the temple area have been transformed from the modest structure built by the Jews who returned from the Babylonian exile into a magnificent complex. In addition, each town now has a synagogue, a place for worship and study of the Word of God. 1 October 2011 18 Israel Order

Until John the Baptist:

John’s love for Christ —The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. He must become greater; I must become less. John 3:29-30 Jesus said, “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it. For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John”. Matthew 11:12-13 Father: Zacharias Mother: Elisabeth First mention: Matthew 3:1 Final mention: Acts 19:4 Meaning of his name: “Grace of God” Frequency of his name: Referred to 90 times Occupation: Prophet and Nazirite evangelist Place of birth: Hill country of Judaea Place of death: In a dungeon near the Dead Sea Circumstances of death: He was beheaded by the sword. Age at death: Approximately 35 Important fact about his life: He was the forerunner of Christ; he both introduced and baptized the Messiah. Until John the Baptist 1 October 2011 19 Israel Order

Salvation is from the Jews, but Jesus is the way now.:

Salvation is from the Jews, but Jesus is the way now. The tearing of the curtain in the temple (Matthew 27: 51) was God's own proclamation that in the death of Christ the barrier between God and man disappeared (Hebrews 9:1–14 ; 10:14–22). Jesus said in John 4: 20-23, You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Paul wrote Romans 10:1. Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. Though the Nation Israel still exist but the Israel order is finished. We don’t have to follow Judaism anymore. No sacrifice needed anymore because Jesus is our Sacrifice. 1 Corinthians 12:13 “For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body — whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free — and we were all given the one Spirit to drink”. 1 October 2011 20 Israel Order
