Galatians 6:16 (KJV) True Israel
Galatians 6:16 (KJV) And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
The Book of Galatians not only speaks of the flesh and the Spirit but also of an Israel after the flesh and an Israel of God. Gill says of the Israel of God, “Israel his elect; who are redeemed by him, out of every kindred, tongue, people, and nation; who are called by his grace, and are styled Israel his called”
There is an Israel who is not Israel at all. They have
the blood of the Jews and
the traditions of the Jews but not
the heart of the Jews
because their heart is not after God.
Then there is an Israel who is true though not Israel after the flesh.
They do not possess the blood of the Jews.
They do not keep the traditions of the Jews
but they are Israel indeed because they possess a heart after God’s own heart.
