The Calling of the Nations
What is Messiah ’ s Mutual Mandate ? In Part One I used the term “ Messiah ’ s Mutual Mandate ” to describe the biblical mandate God has given Israel to be a blessing to the nations ( Genesis 12:3 ). Likewise , God has provided the Gentile church a biblical calling to bless Israel and the Jewish people ( Romans 11:11 , Romans 15:27 ). I refer to this dyad of interconnecting biblical instructions as “ Messiah ’ s Mutual
Mandate .”
As Jewish and Gentile believers in Yeshua learn to cooperate in these mandates , God ’ s glory is manifested through the unity in His Body by the power of the Spirit ( John 17:22 ). Yeshua specifically prays to the Father for all His followers in John
10:23 , “ that they may be perfected in unity , so that the world may know that You sent Me , and loved them , even as You have loved Me .”
