According to the Bible, who really is the “Israel of God” (Galatians 6:16)? The name Israel was first mentioned in Genesis 32 when Jacob wrestled with the Lord and the Lord said to Jacob, “Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed” (Genesis 32:28). Jacob had a character change. He went from a deceiver, supplanter, and trickster to a prince with God and a champion of God. Therefore, Israel is a spiritual term that lies deep in the heart of God that defines His changed people. They are God’s holy people made up of every tribe, tongue, and nation who have been washed in the blood of Jesus and now have been transformed into the sons of the Living God. This revelation is a must for all believers because this is God’s promise for His people. This is His emphasis in the last days. He died to deliver us from the Law which envelops all of Jewish tradition, customs, and ordinances, which “gendereth to bondage” (Galatians 4:24). For through Jesus “there is neither Jew nor Greek” and we now are all God’s new creation created in Christ Jesus. This is the Israel of God!
