You don’t say

I Was reading my Facebook page and came across this picture and I pondered what meant it and what I was seeing and reading. It was a picture of a wannabe Jesus with the caption Jesus goes back to washington. There is a a Dominican word (same as English) that I picked up from my wife,her family and friends conversations I had over the the years. The word is pique which means annoying,exasperating. That is exactly what this picture created in my heart and mind:

What it meant:

Jesus at one time was represented and ruled in the American government as if this was a Christian nation. It never was-though it may be influenced by Christian principles,God’s mercies and Christians who are the salt of the earth preserving,sustaining and nurturing culture and society only as far as they are faithful to God and His word.(see the history of o.t. Israel which God solely and specifically set up as a “Christian nation”,)

What I was seeing:

A wannabe  Jesus we like to make jesus in our sinful image rather than see the real Jesus in his word:(bbv Isa 53:1,golden calf

What I was reading: Jesus goes back to washington as if He had his throne their at one time

Theocratic rule only at his 2nd coming
The second Israel the real Christian nation not America,not modern day Israel but the church. Romans 11:

Gentiles Grafted In

11 So I ask, did they stumble in order that they might fall? By no means! Rather, through their trespass <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(N)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28205N” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>salvation has come to the Gentiles, so as to make Israel jealous. 12 Now if their trespass means riches for the world, and if their failure means riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full inclusion<sup data-fn=”#fen-ESV-28206b” class=”footnote” data-link=”[b]” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>[b] mean!

13 Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch then as <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(O)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28207O” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry 14 in order somehow to make my fellow Jews jealous, and <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(P)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28208P” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>thus save some of them. 15 For if their rejection means <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(Q)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28209Q” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead? 16 <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(R)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28210R” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>If the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, so is the whole lump, and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

17 But if <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(S)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28211S” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>some of the branches were broken off, and you, <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(T)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28211T” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root<sup data-fn=”#fen-ESV-28211c” class=”footnote” data-link=”[c]” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>[c] of the olive tree, 18 do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you. 19 Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” 20 That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(U)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28214U” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>stand fast through faith. So <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(V)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28214V” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>do not become proud, but <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(W)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28214W” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. 22 Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you, <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(X)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28216X” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(Y)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28216Y” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>you too will be cut off. 23 And <sup class=”crossreference” data-link=”(Z)” data-cr=”#cen-ESV-28217Z” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px”>even they, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, the natural branches, be grafted back into their own olive tree.
