August 2012 Theme Summation

Our theme for August, Victory over death, is something all Israel is in hopes of. Titus 1:2 reads, ďIn hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the world began. In order to gain the victory over death, we must be able to look at this theme in two different perspectives, what we know and what we believe.

In The Spiritual Israel Church and its Army we teach that if we live true to the teachings of Israel and die from living in the flesh (Galatians 5:19) , we can live and not die. In Israel we believe that death is a punishment from God for being disobedient to what the God of Israel has commanded us to do. If we believe the Bible we find that death was instituted as punishment for disobedience, (Genesis 3rd chapter) and death is not a part of Godís divine will. When Adam made the choice to be disobedient to the commandment of the God of Israel, death was activated. This is what we believe. We also believe since the God of Israel has redeemed us (Isaiah 43:1) and if we would cast way all of our transgressions and turn from them we can live because the God of Israel has no pleasure in the death of them that die(Ezekiel 18:31-32). The God of Israel has promised life to those who keep his commandments. This is what we believe.

What we know is that mostly all people die. Young, old, sinners and the righteous still die. Some die, I believe, for their sin, others die for the sins of others. Romans 6:23 reads the wages of sin is death. What is really sad is that most people die because they do not believe that they can live. They have not been shown the way of life (Acts 2:28) therefore they concede to dying because their consciousness is not aware of anything else. Instead of trying to get off punishment by living righteously (Proverbs 12:28), they accept that this is the way it is supposed to be. It is very important that we all be taught the truth about the word of God.

It is also important that we develop an environment that is free from sin. We as true Israelites must do this. As long as sin is reigning in the world we all will be subject to it. Sin is the reason for death. The word of God gives no other explanation for it.

No one can really tell us what happens during and after death because no one has died and then came back and talked about what it was like to be dead. We may all have some idea of what some spiritually enlightening book may theorize death to be like but truthfully no one really knows.

In getting the victory over death there is another perspective we can look at and speak what we know. Death, in and of itself, does not always relate to physical death. There are many people alive who have died inside long ago. Some have no conscious; some have no expectations in this life, some no goals, no love to give and no one to love them. In reality they are already dead. They only go to the grave to be a testament to those who do not understand the true meaning of life that they are dead. In getting the true victory over death, we must live our life in a way that our own life has true meaning. We must take full advantage of our eternal life that we possess at this very moment. Whatever our challenge or situation we must continue to believe in the God of Israel and live as if we have already gained the victory. We cannot obtain the victory over death with a defeated attitude. We must enjoy life everyday and be content with where the God of Israel has placed us at this very moment. Things that bring us down and bring unnecessary stress in our life we must avoid. We must gain knowledge and put forth effort to take care of our physical temples. We must love for love is as strong as death (Song of Solomon 8:6). We must forgive, so we can live. In short, we must live the victory. This is Israelís reality and if we stay true to the God of Israel and keep his commandments we can live the Victory over death.

Peace

Bishop Harvey Beavers Jr.




May the God of Israel continue to bless us and give us the desire to seek true understanding of His Word.
