As a Christian do you know your Family History?

When it comes to family and the history of that family it is safe to say that we have done our research. Today I want to talk about another family history.
When a person reads the bible, they will have questions. You read a verse and it is like immediately your thinking, “how is that to be.” For example, Hebrews chapter 11 is known as the Hall of Faith. Do you know why it is called, “Hall of Faith?”

As Christians we have a history we need to know where and when did we come into this Salvation plan.
Are you aware that God’s design for Salvation was for the Jews, not the Gentiles? We know this to be true for in the scriptures reveals how the Jews decided that they were not going to be obedient to God.
God said that he will have salvation for the Gentiles which is us. Did you know that the Jews considered the Gentiles to be DOGS? Remember the story of the woman who came to Jesus and said, “I know you came for the Jews but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the master’s table? “
This Gentile woman knew Jesus was not for her, but she wanted life. To her it did not matter what she had to do she was willing to take the crumbs, which is leftovers for a dog to eat.
As Christians we really need to know our history. I always have questions when I read God’s word. When I cross reference on scriptures it takes me back to another verse or verses.
What would happen if I never asked any questions? I never would have found out why Hebrews chapter 11 is called the “hall of faith.” Or why Salvation was for the Jews, and why we are the Gentiles.
You and I cannot afford to miss knowing about our family history as Christians. We will always have questions the only way we are going to get answered is to read the entire bible. AMEN
Have a blessed day.

  1. I don’t know if I agree that salvation was not originally for the Gentiles. When God rescued Isaac from the sacrificial altar in Gen. 22 He said to Abraham “and through your seed shall all nations be blessed”. Speaking through the prophet Isaiah God says of the Messiah, “I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.” (Isa. 49) And Jesus Himself said, “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.” John 16.
