The Israel of God!!
Only ONE ISRAEL today and that is the true CONGREGATION of Christ!!
“And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the ISRAEL OF GOD.” (Galatians 6:16).
The Fake “Jews” were called Samaritans!!
At the time of Christ there were plenty of phony “Jews” around. They were called Samaritans and lived north of Jerusalem. These Sam-Jews should be more aptly called SCAM-Jews because they SUPPLANTED the real Jews in the centuries after Christ!!
Jesus actually had an interview with a Samaritan woman when he journeyed through Samaria:
“Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, asketh drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealing with the Samaritans” (John 4:9).
Then she went on to claim that she was descended from Jacob the great Jewish patriarch:
“Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle” (John 4:12).
But Jesus said unto her:
“Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews”(John 4:22).
Jesus rejected the Samaritans claim of descent from Abraham. He refused to call them Jews:
“Go not unto the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel“ (Matt. 10:5).
One of these Samaritans named Simon had a confrontation with the Apostle Peter in Acts chapter 8 when he tried to buy the gift of God with money. St. Peter literally told him to go to hell:
“But Peter said unto him (Simon Magus), Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money” (Acts 8:20).
This Simon the Sorcerer went to Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius and was honored as a god with a statue being erected in his honor. This is the SIMON that founded the church of Rome . . . and not the apostle Peter!!
