    House of Jacob?

    Luke 1:31-33
    31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign over the HOUSE OF JACOB forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
    This is very interesting the way the angel of the Lord spoke this. He refers to the House of Jacob. Not the house of Abraham or the house of Isaac but specifically the HOUSE OF JACOB. He also did not mention it this way, “House of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob”.

    This seems to be a bit of a mystery, at least on the surface. We could state that this represents the entire house of Israel but a cursory search in the scriptures using the phrase “house of Jacob,” we find numerous references where a distinction is made from Israel and the house of Jacob.

    In Isaiah 58, for those who honor the Sabbath by not seeking their own ways or their own pleasure or speaking their own words, just as Jesus did, they are to be FED with the HERITAGE of Jacob.

    I know the heritage of Abraham was passed down through his son Isaac and then to Jacob but what does this really mean. Consider this for a moment, Abraham, Isaac & Jacob are representatives of the Godhead, “Father, Son & Holy Spirit”. Abraham-Father, Isaac-Son, Jacob or Israel-Holy Spirit.
    Romans 8:14
    For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
    This verse IMPLIES that if we are NOT being led by the Spirit of God, THEN we are NOT sons.

    NOW, Luke 1:33 makes more sense. The angel of the Lord is declaring and prophesying that Jesus will reign over the HOUSE OF JACOB, those led of Holy Spirit, forever. No others will qualify. Although Jesus is King of all kings and Lord of all lords and He has been given authority in heaven, earth and under the earth, the kingdom of God will not consist of the ungodly nor those who have not allowed Him to be Lord over their lives by letting Holy Spirit lead and guide them into all truth.

    The church cannot qualify for heaven unless they allow Holy Spirit to lead them. He is the ONLY One given by Jesus and the Father, to prepare those who believe. How can we even THINK that we can follow Jesus WITHOUT the One that was sent to do this?

    Just as in the story of Esther, she was being prepared by a certain eunuch in the house of the king. Only this eunuch knew what was needed to be acceptable before the king as he lived in that house and had intimate knowledge that Esther did not have. Imagine what would have happened if Esther felt she needed no special preparation and presented herself before the king WITHOUT proper preparation?

    Jesus spoke of this when He spoke of that man not dressed in wedding garments:
    Matthew 22:11-14
    11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. 12 So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and[a] cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
    14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”
    Holy Spirit is the ONLY ONE tasked with preparing the Body of Christ for the marriage supper of the Lamb. If we refuse His leading and guidance, how then can we be prepared properly? How can we come into intimacy with the Father unless we are trained and tested in obedience to the Spirit of God? How then can we KNOW the Father and become His sons and daughters if we refuse Him whom He sent?

    Those who refuse, will not inherit the kingdom of God. This is such a stark reality for those who think that they are okay because either others have told them they are and they based their choices on the approval of men or have made their own determination using their own “wisdom” as the basis for their choices. All these will most certainly cast one into that place they are not expecting.

    God is the ONLY One who has APPROVAL POWER. Let us seek Him and follow Him by His Spirit. Let us learn to HEAR His voice and OBEY His voice. These are the two most critical things we need. This is what it means to LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR MIND, HEART AND STRENGTH.

    If you do not yet hear the voice of the Lord as you should, then I highly recommend you read and do what Proverbs chapter 2 says to do.

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.
