Continued from the OP...
This law is for all the generations for ever, and there is no circumcision of the days, and no omission of one day out of the eight days; for it is
an eternal ordinance, ordained 26 and written on the heavenly tablets. And every one that is born, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised
on the eighth day, belongs not to the children of the covenant which the Lord made with Abraham, but to the children of destruction; nor is there,
moreover, any sign on him that he is the Lord's, but (he is destined) to be destroyed and slain from the earth, and to be rooted out of 27 the
earth, for he has broken the covenant of the Lord our God.
---This passage looks forward to the time, 1000 years form our day and age, when Satan is once again released to deceive the nations. How do we
circumcise our hearts? We cut away the desire to serve self. It is clear so far that the thread of truth that runs through Rumi, Enoch and the Bible
is the same thread that runs through all of religion. We must rise instead of fall while we are baptized in the waters of life. We are here to
repent of sin. No our own sin, but the choice to make it by free will. Love is the law. If we refuse it, we perish. Selfishness is the mark of the
beast. I'll get to that later. Will works save us? No. It takes the Atonement of Christ to bring us back to unity with the Father. We cannot save
For all the angels of the presence and all the angels of sanctification (being set apart) have been so created from the day of their creation,
and before the angels of the presence and the angels of sanctification He hath sanctified Israel, that they should 28 be with Him and with His holy
angels. And do thou command the children of Israel and let them observe the sign of this covenant for their generations as an eternal ordinance,
and they will not be 29 rooted out of the land. For the command is ordained for a covenant, that they should observe it 30 for ever among all the
children of Israel.
----Pay attention to the next part. Rumi was Islamic and from the tribe of Ishmael. The Arabs who are Muslim are outlined here.
For Ishmael and his sons and his brothers and Esau, the Lord did not cause to approach Him, and he chose them not because they are the children of
31 Abraham, because He knew them, but He chose Israel to be His people. And He sanctified it, and gathered it from amongst all the children of men;
for there are many nations and many peoples, and all are His, and over all hath He placed spirits in authority to lead them astray from Him.
----Here we find that many spirits lead men astray from Him. Why? Why is Israel blinded for a time? The whole of the world is God's possession.
God leads His people as we read below, but other Angels lead the other nations.
32 But over Israel He did not appoint any angel or spirit, for He alone is their ruler, and He will preserve
them and require them at the hand of His angels and His spirits, and at the hand of all His powers in order
that He may preserve them and bless them, and that they may be His and He 33 may be theirs from henceforth for ever. And now I announce unto thee
that the children of Israel will not keep true to this ordinance, and they will not circumcise their sons according to all this law; for in the
flesh of their circumcision they will omit this circumcision of their sons, and all of them, 34 sons of Beliar, will leave their sons uncircumcised
as they were born. And there will be great wrath from the Lord against the children of Israel. because they have forsaken His covenant and turned
aside from His word, and provoked and blasphemed, inasmuch as they do not observe the ordinance of this law; for they have treated their members
like the Gentiles, so that they may be removed and rooted out of the land. And
there will no more be pardon or forgiveness unto them [so that there should be forgiveness and pardon] for all
the sin of this eternal error.
As we can read above, this may be a good thing for the other nations. God is using Israel as an example to all of us. Form the, the light of mercy
and judgment are seen clearly. Is Jesus (Son of God) accepted by Christians? yes. How is Jesus seen by Islam? As a messenger, yet they do not
follow the message of love. As for Israel, they do not believe. They have been blinded to it until the 2nd year of tribulation. I believe that we
will soon witness Israel waking up to Jesus. Joseph told the 12 brothers who he was in the 2nd year of the famine. I think this foreshadows what is
coming in the tribulation. This will be a time of Jacob's trouble and all of the world will witness it.

3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,
disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4
treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do
with such people.
