Who are the Israelites?

(Kahuku HI)

Some people say that Jesus will return for His people, from what I hear. Were the chosen people the dark skinned people? Is this true or false?

AMEN and a great question it was. I've pondered this question many times before the word of God says those called by God were chosen before the foundations of the earth. As our creator I believe his spirit that dwells with us and in us will guide us to all truths. Who and what we are will come to fruition that is the will of our Father who art in heaven.

To GOD be the glory!!!!!!!!!!!

Israelites called Jews
by: Tom

Israelites, ... Called Jews 11 times, and Israel 12 times in the book of Romans, proving both terms refer to the same people. "Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the ADOPTION, and the GLORY, and the COVENANTS, and the GIVING OF THE LAW, and the SERVICE OF GOD, and the PROMISES; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen". Romans 9:4-5. Now to be a true Jew one must be of the seed of Abraham, and have circumcision of the heart, and be a child of promise Rom. 2:28-29; 9:6-7

Chosen and Elect
by: Anonymous

On a day of Pentecost Through out the history of mankind God's first fruit harvest, chosen 144.000 will go to heaven as it says in Revelation 14. This is the last trumpet mentioned in 1 Cor 15.52, Please read 1 Thes. 4.16 & 17.

They will become Spiritual beings at the blowing of the last trumpet.1/4th of the population the Elect will be in Zion at this time, these elect will come to Zion after the great tribulation.

Entire chapter 7 of Revelation mentioned these elect. You see 144,000 Israel from each tribes remain in Kingdom of God as physical beings and Dan will added to the them from the great multitude

Yes. Jesus will return for His people. The Jews are His chosen people, but not the only ones Christ will return for. And no, not all of God's chosen have dark skin.

As for "Who are the Israelites?" title - I consider them the Jewish people in general, but am sure some of the 12 tribes descendants live all over the world and the bloodline may not necessarily only mean those of Jewish faith.
