Messiah’s Mutual Mandate – Part 2 Jack Jacobs
What is Messiah’s Mutual Mandate? In Part One I used the term “Messiah’s Mutual Mandate” to describe the biblical mandate God has given Israel to be a blessing to the nations (Genesis 12:3). Likewise, God has provided the Gentile church a biblical calling to bless Israel and the Jewish people (Romans 11:11, Romans 15:27). I refer to this dyad of interconnecting biblical instructions as “Messiah’s Mutual Mandate.”
As Jewish and Gentile believers in Yeshua learn to cooperate in these mandates, God’s glory is manifested through the unity in His Body by the power of the Spirit (John 17:22). Yeshua specifically prays to the Father for all His followers in John 10:23, “that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.”
Part one focused on God’s specific calling for us who are in Messianic congregations. The biblical pathway was examined in how strong, godly relationships with our brothers and sisters in the Church are being established. Now, in Part Two, we turn our attention to that which God has instructed His Gentile believers in the Church to pursue. In this regard, I will be referencing my book “Hear O Nations,” which highlights the biblical commands which God has directly given to the Nations.
