Anointed Flock...the Truth

RESPONSE TO A LETTER:

I would be happy to discuss the ideas in your "great crowd" article, most notably the conclusions about "every tribe and tongue and people and nation”.
You may want to re-consider Rev.5:9,10;
as well as the thought that after the first century,
the rest of the anointed are derived from this larger flock of physical Gentiles....
the larger flock than the "little flock" of anointed physical descendants of Abraham (physical Jews).
Since the first century, the anointed have been chosen from among physical Gentiles ("every tribe and tongue and people and nation")
to become spiritual Jews, along with the original physical Jews (Matt.15:24; 10:6; Rom.1:16; 2:9,10,11) who also became spiritual Jews,
so that both physical Jew and physical Gentile,
all become "one flock" of anointed spiritual "Jews". (Rom.2:28,29; John10:16,27; Isa.56:8; Eze.34:23; Rev.7:17)

The last of the anointed priests and kings (the great crowd "capstone" Zech.4:7,9; Rev.7:9,17),
MUST be all physical Gentiles (Rev.5:9,10). 
There is no longer any record of physical Jews,
nor any preferential consideration toward them, since the time of their rejection of God's Son and subsequent hardening of their hearts in unrepentance (Heb.8:13; Rom.11:25); and since the opening of the kingdom hope toward Gentiles (Acts13:46; 10:15; Eph.2:14,15,16; Acts10:34,35,44,45; Gal.3:28). 

In the first century...Jews who repented were accepted (Acts2:36,37,38; Rom.9:27). After this opportunity, it was made equally opened to physical Gentiles to be in God's New Covenant, which replaced the Old Covenant toward physical Jews.
These anointed (since the first century) are from all "tribes and nations". Whether Jew or Gentile --it matters not, since the end of the Law Covenant abolished any favoritism. "Jew" is just one of the many nations included in the New Covenant of Christ's anointed sheep.

Compare the total flock of anointed to an apple pie.
Some apples are of one sort, some of another sort.



Physical Jews are one sort. Yet Gentiles are of many sorts.
Yet they are all mixed together to become one pie. (Gal3:28,29; John10:16; Eph.3:6)


This fits the "one flock" as consisting of both physical Jew and a variety of physical Gentiles.
They join to become one anointed flock/ one "pie".

Now after most of that "pie" has come and gone (eaten),
there is a final slice that is left. 



No one can say how large or small it is (Rev.7:9)
We can be certain though, that just like the pie from which it came,
it consists of a variety of apples (Rev.7:9) (Perhaps including physical Jews, without special distinction)
This is the remnant... the great crowd/last capstone of the anointed "Temple" (1Pet.2:5; Eph.2:20,21), 
which comes through the time of the end and it's final great Satanic test, the "Great Tribulation". (Rev.7:14; Zech.4:7,9,11,14; Rev.11:3,4).

The "one pie"/flock, is not designated as being of one sort of apple or another sort.
That last slice is also considered "of every tribe tongue people and nation"...including any physical Jews.
Why?
There is no longer any distinction, nor favoritism among the anointed (Acts10:34; Gal.3:28,29).
For, God's chosen are from all nations (including physical Jews), selected to become the new "Israel of God".
 (Gal.6:15,16; Rev.3:12; 21:2; 2Pet.3:13).
