Shalom. This video is, more or less, the second part of the "Mysteries of the Kingdom" message. Taken from the same conference in 2004, this message has, perhaps, received more response and positive reaction than any other message I've given. Like Mysteries of the Kingdom, we decided to retire this video to the Vault and so, from now on, this is the only place you'll be able to find it. Hope you enjoy. Approximately 60 minutes.

P.S. An audio version is available below.

      I want every Christian in the world to hear this message, like so many of the messages that Abba brings through you, Bill. I thank YAH for your gift and obedience!

    Bill,

    Despite the age of this message, this video shows the eternal nature of the Truth with a little pentecostal flair thrown in. I can see why this is one of your most popular videos. It’s “Rockstar” teaching my friend. May the Messiah turn this into a multi-platinum seller!

    Shalom Bill,

    Can you help me out in reference to Gen 12:3 as I am not seeing it or understanding it as you have taught here. In studying the Hebrew, my understanding is the Hebrew word that is translated as ‘families/nations’ is the key reference. That Hebrew word ‘mishpachah’ does not just mean joined together with blood, it includes the entire household which includes those of Gen 17:27. Therefore, the grafting into the family of Abraham through Messiah would be the same as when a bride and groom become man and wife. They are not of the same father in the flesh, but when they come together, their flesh becomes as one. So understanding this, how is it that the word ‘barak’ is that which grafts in? What is the connection between ‘barak’ and ‘faith’ as by faith (mishpachah of (joining together with) Abraham) we enter and then from that comes the blessings? I have been hearing the view that the word for bless is that which brings us in for 5 yrs now and it still makes no sense to me.

    Shalom, Linda

      Linda; If you don’t mind, I’ll try and answer your question by quoting from my own book, Enmity Between the Seeds. I hope this helps some.

      The Scripture teaches that the non-Jewish believers are to become one with natural born Israel. Paul highlighted this when he noted in Galatians that the Scripture foresaw God would justify the Gentile nations by faith and, in fact, revealed this beforehand to Abraham when He said:

      “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” – Galatians. 3:8

      The passage Paul refers to is in Genesis:

      “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” – Genesis 12:3

      Most of us are very familiar with this passage and the theology derived from it, but I ask you – exactly how does this Scripture reveal that God intended to justify the Gentiles by faith? The answer, I believe, evades us until we take a look at the Hebrew text. When we look at what Moses wrote, the answer to my question seems to center on the Hebrew phrase “shall be blessed” which in Hebrew is v’nivrakhu. To truly understand the nuances of this phrase, I wish to quote a work by D. Thomas Lancaster.

      “The Artscroll Tanach Series Bereishis commentary cites an opinion regarding the words, ‘And all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.’ The opinion states that the verb v’nivracu, which means “will be blessed,” is related to the Mishnaic Hebrew term mavrik, which means “to intermingle, to graft.” This opinion is based on a grammatical anomaly in Genesis 12:3. The verb “bless” (barak) is rarely found in the form (niphal) that it appears in Genesis 12:3. The same verbal root, however, is continually found in this form in regard to “grafting” of plants. Thus, one might translate the verse as “All peoples on earth will be grafted into you.”
      – The Mystery of the Gospel, p. 32

      This information, ladies and gentlemen, is ballistic for a couple of reasons. First of all, if this is a correct interpretation of Genesis 12:3, then Torah scholars understood from the beginning that Gentiles were to come to faith in God and be brought into the family tree, one that Paul describes in Romans 11 as an olive tree. Paul writes that we, the Gentiles, are a wild branch that is “grafted” into the main tree. Interestingly, the technical term used to describe the branch being grafted into the root stock is scion and means “heir.”

      Please notice that the branch Paul describes as being grafted into the cultivated olive tree is also an olive branch, albeit a wild one (Rom. 11:24). Nevertheless, it is not a fig branch or a myrtle branch. It is an olive branch, which means it originated from the same species of seed as did the cultivated tree! Why is that important? Because the Torah teaches there can be no mingling of species of seed, or else the field (Lev. 19:19), the vineyard (Deut. 22:9), or in this case, the tree is defiled.

      Based on this law, Rabbinic commentary argues, logically, that the taboo against mingling seeds should be extended to include the grafting of trees and plants. In other words, it is unlawful to graft a different species onto a plant or tree. That is why it is a wild olive branch that is grafted into the cultivated olive tree. This being understood, for the nations to be “grafted” into Abraham, as Mr. Lancaster suggests, implies that they must be the same type of seed as Abraham. That they are of the same “seed” but are also from the nations strongly indicates that Abraham’s seed is comprised of those who are of faith and not necessarily those of blood. This is a point Paul strives to make throughout his ministry in most, if not all, of his epistles.

      In the end, there is only one tree, not two, in Romans 11. In Galatians 3 Paul notes that there is neither Jew nor Greek. In his letter to the Ephesians he writes:

      “For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation … so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity . . . Now therefore, you (Gentiles) are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.” – Ephesians 2:13-16, 19

      There is one body and one Spirit, . . . one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”- Ephesians 4:4-6

      In short, there is only one Good Seed, identified by Paul as the Messiah and those who have trusted in Him.

      “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He does not say, ‘And to seeds,’ as of many, but as of one. ‘And to your Seed,’ who is Messiah … You are all one in Messiah Y’shua. And if you are Messiah’s, then YOU ARE Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.” – Galatians 3:16, 28-29

    • Bill says:

      Joe; The latter part of August and throughout September, I will be traveling with my family in our RV, mostly out west. It just depends on when, specifically, you will be here and where I happen to be at the time. Just keep me posted about your schedule and we’ll see how things shape up. If its possible, we will try to work out a time for a meeting. Shalom.
