olive treeHeb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

By faith Abel was faithful and pronounced righteous. By faith Enoch pleased God and did not see death. By faith Noah became the heir of righteousness. By faith Abraham looked for a city not built by human hands and became the father of faith. By faith Sarah conceived a child into a dead womb. By faith Issac and Jacob and Joseph obeyed God. By faith Moses choose to enter into the sufferings of Jesus rather than enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. By faith David and Samuel and Isaiah and Jeremiah and Gideon and countless others found favor in the eyes of the Lord. By faith Peter pronounced that Jesus was the Son of God. By faith Stephen glorified God as he was stoned to death. By faith the Apostles gladly died for Christ. By faith Polycarp refused to burn incense to the Roman emperor and was burned alive. By faith Wycliffe translated the scriptures. By faith John Huss stood upon the truth and was killed. By faith Dietrich Bonhoeffer incurred the wrath and hatred of Hitler and was hung by piano wire. By faith Jim Elliot did not defend himself and was speared to death for the cause of Christ.

Saints, I want you to see the wonderful beautiful thread right from the beginning of Gods people. They had one heart and one mind and one Spirit. They are all part of the Olive tree of God. This means the illuminated ones. They are not several groups as some teach today. There is one tree and one is either part of that tree or  one is not. There is not Jewish  believers and Gentile believers, there is only the people of faith. You can be cut out or be grafted in, or be grafted back in, but the tree remains constant. The roots and the foundations are Christ Himself , the Apostles and the Prophets through the Holy Spirit.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Gal 3:28-29)

What God has joined together, let no man try to separate. There is one glorious Church, there is not Jewish and Gentile believers, there is only believers who are a part of the Olive tree. This was the great mystery revealed to Paul by God, not from men, by God. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner-stone; (Eph 2:19-20)
