between TTGM and a Friend on same topic:
All the nations will be gathered
(Zech 12:3 [KJV])
And in that day will I make
Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with
it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered
together against it.

in the last days?
TTGM: The Jews are the descendants of
Judah (the southern Israeli tribe). This is the tribe that God has brought
back to the land in the Middle East. Whereas the other tribes of Israel are
still dispersed in the nations – some may have returned already. This is our

We have... the text speaks of the heart (inward). Let us quantify it. These
men were born in the line (descendants) of Abraham to Jacob. They were
circumcised according to the covenant etc. However, they are being
disobedient to the law and they are also not of Christ (inwardly), our Lord
at one point called their father, the devil. These "Jews" are men with
uncircumcised hearts. In other words, they are Jews in the carnal, but
spiritually in God they have no part.
Consider John 8:38 - Christ
questions if they were Abraham's children. Not because of birth but rather
of their works.
Considers John 8:44 - Christ calls these people no
children of Abraham, but rather their father is of the devil.
are they, who is Christ talking to? The BOOK calls them Jews - see john 8:48
; then answered the Jews...
In short, by blood they are descendants of Abraham - Judah and others,
however by the spirit (inward heart), they are not.
The Greatest Love of all (John 3:16)
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"
