The Native Born Man And The Stranger

Ger, Ezrach, stranger, native born, born in the land, exodus 12 48-49, one lawIsrael is composed of only two kinds of men; the native born man [Ezrach] and the stranger [Ger]. There are no Gentiles in Israel, only men who were Gentiles at one time.

Only The Native Born man and the Strange Are Yehovah’s People

One law shall be for the native born (Ezrach) and for the stranger [Ger] who dwells among you.” (Exo 12:49)

You shall have one law for him who sins unintentionally, for him who is native born (Ezrach), Israel’s seed (perversely known as “the children of Israel”) and for the stranger [Ger] who dwells among them. ‘But the person who does anything presumptuously, whether he is native born (Ezrach) or a stranger [Ger], that one brings reproach on Yehovah, and he shall be cut off from among his people. (Num 15:29-30)

The stranger [Ger] who dwells among you shall be to you as native born man (Ezrach), and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers [Gerim, plural of Ger] in the land of Egypt: I am Yehovah, your Elohim [your lawmaker and judge]. (Lev 19:34)

It Is All About the The Ezrach and the Ger!

Few people understand that the native born man (Ezrach)is Yehovah’s son and heir, Israel, His first-born, His spiritual seed.

“Then Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying; ‘Again, you shall say to Israel’s seed [beni Israel]: Whoever of Israel’s seed, or of the strangers [Gerim] who dwell in Israel … (Lev 20:1-2)

You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native born [Ezrach] to Israel shall dwell in booths, that your generations may know that I made Israel’s seed [beni Israel] dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am Yehovah, your Elohim. So Moses declared to Israel’s seed [beni Israel] the feasts of Yehovah. (Lev 23:42-44)

“Whatever man of Israel’s seed [beni Israel], or of the strangers [Gerim] who dwell among you, who hunts and catches any animal or bird that may be eaten, he shall pour out its blood and cover it with dust; for it is the life of all flesh. Its blood sustains its life. Therefore I said to Israel’s seed [beni Israel], ‘You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off.’ “And every person who eats what died naturally or what was torn by beasts, whether he is a native born [Ezrach] or a stranger [Ger], he shall both wash his clothes and bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Then he shall be clean. (Lev 17:13-15)

Only The Native Born Man and the Stranger Who Dwells With Him, Are Yehovah’s People

If we, men, are not either a Ger or an Ezrach, we are not Yehovah’s people! The goal of the faith, that Yeshua and all the righteous men since Adam taught, is to become the Ezrach, Israel’s seed; to be reconciled back into the spiritual men that Yehovah created us to be.  This is why Yeshua told Nicodemus, “You (Nicodemus) must be born again.”

A Gentile becomes a Ger by leaving the kingdom and elohim (lawmakers and judges) of his birth and then joining himself (and his family) to a Yehovah and His spiritually born men, His Ezrach. The Ger become the “who dwells with the Ezrach.” This is why the covenants that we have with the world are so critical. We can not serve two masters! Did we have any covenants with Pharaoh after we left Egypt? Of course not!

“I am Yehovah, your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. “You shall have no other elohim [lawmakers or judges] existing before my face. (Exo 20:2-3)

Then Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to Israel’s seed, and say to them: ‘I am Yehovah, your Elohim. According to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, YOU SHALL NOT DO; and according to the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, YOU SHALL NOT DO; nor shall you walk in their ordinances. You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am Yehovah, your Elohim. You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man [ha·a·dam] does, he shall live by them: I am Yehovah. (Lev 18:2-5)

Abraham did not have sword permit, a sheep herder’s or cart driver’s license from the kings of Canaan while he dwelt there. And he did not have a covenant with any kings or kingdoms on the earth? He served only Yehovah!

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is Elohim [THE lawmaker and judge]. (Heb 11:8-10)

These all died in faith [faithfully keeping Yehovah’s ways], not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they came out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore Elohim is not ashamed to be called their Elohim, for He has prepared a city for them. (Heb 11:13-16)

Only The Ezrach and the Ger Serve Yehovah

We can not keep our covenants with Egypt and still call ourselves Yehovah’s people. This is why I put together my writings on how a man becomes a Ger. The Gentile becomes a Ger

Ger, Ezrach, stranger, native-born, born in the land, exodus 12 48-49, one law, native bornBut becoming a Ger is just the beginning. At Passover we, men, have both the opportunity and the responsibility to bring to Yehovah the offering he requires and become as one born in the land, an Ezrach, a son of the Most High. Passover was originally called the “Time of Life“; it is the time that a man enters into covenant with Yehovah or renews his covenant with him each year. It is at this time that our sins are forgiven and we begin our year fresh with Him.

And if we become sons of Yehovah, our women (who are bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh) become His daughters.

And when a stranger [Ger] dwells with you (the Ezrach) and wants to keep the Passover to Yehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall become as the native born [an Ezrach]” (Exo 12:48)

They shall leave none of it until morning, nor break one of its bones. According to all the ordinances of the Passover they shall keep it. But the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and ceases to keep the Passover, that same person shall be cut off from among his people, because he did not bring the offering of Yehovah at its appointed time; that man [eesh] shall bear His sin. (Num 9:12-13)

“Gather My saints together to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by slaughter [zabech].” (Psa 50:5)

This is what my 4 writings on the “Process of becoming as one born in the land” is all about. Helping men learn how they can become first a Ger and then at Passover,  Yehovah’s spiritually born seed.

So the life or death question we must all answer for ourselves is this.

Does Yehovah change? And, will His word endure forever?

I say, “He does NOT change, and that His word, given through Moses, WILL endure forever” and I will and have staked my life on it. Will you?
