We love Israel
At International Christian Fellowship Marbella (ICFM), we love, support covenant with, and pray for the land the people of Israel. We passionately intercede for the peace of Jerusalem.
“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)
In the fourth century, during the Councils of Elvira and Nicaea, church elders established many rules and regulations to separate the Church from the Jewish roots of Her faith. Subsequently, many religious leaders tried to erase the memory of any connection between a Jewish Jesus and the faith of Christianity. These decisions were not God’s highest and best for either Israel or the Church—they simply resulted in separating us from the blessings of our heritage.
As A Result, Many Modern-Day Christians Do Not Have A Full Grasp Of The Jewish Roots Of Their Faith, And Are Therefore Missing Out On The Blessing Of A Deeper Understanding Of What Is Rightfully Theirs.
Because many Christians are unaware of their heritage, they are unable to fully claim the blessings of that inheritance. Your inheritance must be claimed in order to have full value in your life! Our experiences mold us, and our heritage shapes us. In the same way, Christianity was birthed out of the Jewish faith, and yet we have long-since strayed from where we came.
At ICFM, we understand that this separation was never God’s desire for us, and that we are empowered to be who we are called to be, with a greater understanding of our Father, and ultimately of ourselves. The message of The One New Man takes us deep into the Hebrew roots of Christianity and provides us with a clearer understanding of the foundations of our faith, thus allowing us to better know our God. The message of The One New Man helps us to walk in covenant revelation!
Why Does the Church Need To Know About covenant Revelation?
The unity between Jew and Gentile will give birth to miraculous signs and wonders. The manifestation of this union of Jewish and Gentile Believers demonstrates the power of God and His manifold wisdom [see Ephesians 3]. Believers uniting as The One New Man is that manifestation. It has substance — it is real! It is a sign and a wonder and a demonstration that God did not break His covenant with the Jews or the Gentiles.
The scriptures teach us that the Jewish people have been given a double portion — a double blessing [see Isaiah 40: 2]. The Gentiles, by grace, have also been given a portion of this blessing. When the two come together in unity this creates a powerful threefold cord, which makes us much stronger than when we stand on our own. When the first covenant is united with the second covenant, there is a completion that is lacking when the two are separated.
This covenant revelation creates an abiding place for our God within the Body of Christ. In Ephesians 2:22 Paul exhorts us that we are “… being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His spirit.” When both Jews and Gentiles come together, as stated in the scripture, we truly do create an abiding place for His Spirit. As the Jewish people bring forth the ancient covenants, the Gentile Believers bring forth the new covenant, and together it creates this threefold cord that Ecclesiastes 4:12 reminds us “is not easily broken.”
Joy begins with Jesus!
Life in Jesus the Messiah IS JOY!! It is abundant, fulfilling, renewing, full, and all-encompassing. Worshipping the Lord is an ever-flowing river of life that flows out of our spirit and changes everything about our lives. It is not a set of rules that slavishly need to be obeyed … it is an all-consuming love that brings light and joy to every fibre of our being. Come, join us, and step into the joy of your destiny!
