True Yisrael is physical descendants and gar toshav!!!
First off, Yisrael/Israel was the name given to Yaaqob/Jacob by a Mysterious Man, but more than just a Man, if you READ in CONTEXT!!! Yaaqob was a direct descendant of Avraham/Abraham.
Here read for yourself, I am NOT making this up:
Bereshith/Genesis 32:24 And Yaaqob was left alone. And a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day.
Gen 32:25 And when He saw that He did not overcome him, He touched the socket of his hip. And the socket of Yaaqob's hip was dislocated as He wrestled with him.
Gen 32:26 And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he said, “I am not letting You go until You have blessed me!”
Gen 32:27 So He asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Yaaqob.”
Gen 32:28 And He said, “Your name is no longer called Yaaqob' but Yisrael(1), because you have striven with Elohim/G-d and with men, and have overcome.” Footnote: (1)Yisrael means “to strive with El/G-d, to overcome with El, (then) to rule with El”
Gen 32:29 And Yaaqob asked Him, saying, “Please let me know Your Name.” And He said, “Why do you ask about My Name?” And He blessed him there.
Gen 32:30 And Yaaqob called the name of the place Peniel, “For I have seen Elohim/G-d face to face, and my life is preserved.”
Seems that Yaaqob believed the Man he struggled with was Elohim/G-d! Apparently there are MANY in Torah that believe that YHVH/YaHWeH can manifest Himself in a central location in the form of a Man, yet still not be contained by the universe itself. For those that wish to explore this Torah teaching, you can click here: http://www.calledoutservants.com/html/yhvh_in_human_form___.html
Gen 32:31 And the sun rose on him as he passed over Penuel, and he limped on his hip.
Gen 32:32 That is why the children of Yisrael to this day do not eat the sinew of the hip, which is on the socket of the thigh, because He touched the socket of the thigh of Yaaqob, in the sinew of the hip.
The verse above also shows that their are children of Yisrael. These children consist of physical and non-physical, adopted if you will, descendants of Yisrael.Yisrael are a people that choose to FEAR YHVH/YaHWeH, believe in His Mashiyach, and walk in His Torah!
Who am I? My Hebrew/Yisraelite name is Eliyah Ben Yisrael. I simply might just be a graphed in gar toshav/non physical descendant convert through faith in the Seed of Avraham, Yeshua, or a graphed back in physical descendant through faith in the Seed of Avraham, Yeshua.The reason the last can be true is because my mother's maiden name was Lazar/Elazar??? I really do not know, but either way, Mashiyach, brought me back! :)
I am a follower of the Mashiyach/Messiah based on the CONTEXT of His Words and Teachings, and NOT man's teachings or the ways and days of babylon which have infiltrated the Good News from the very beginning, and I am talking about the FIRST mention of Mashiyach, the SEED of the woman in Bereshith/Genesis!!!
True Yisrael has always been comprised of people from ALL nations, languages, and tribes.
Even when the ancient Yisraelites left Mitsrayim/Egypt, it was comprised of a MIXED multitude:
Shemoth/Exodus 12:36 And YHVH/YaHWeH gave the people favour in the eyes of the Mitsrites, so that they gave them what they asked, and they plundered the Mitsrites.
Exo 12:37 And the children of Yisrael set out from Rameses to Sukkoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides the little ones.
Exo 12:38 And a mixed multitude went up with them too, also flocks and herds, very much livestock.
Plus, many believed in YHVH and walked in the Covenants of our forefathers and lived in Shalom/Peace within the Land divided up between the 12 Tribes.
Those were to be considered as NATIVE BORN, and NOT second class!!!
Yehezkel/Ezekiel 47:21 “And you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Yisrael.
Eze 47:22 “And it shall be that you divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who sojourn in your midst and who bear children among you. And they shall be to you as native-born among the children of Yisrael – with you they have an inheritance in the midst of the tribes of Yisrael(1). Footnote: 1Isa. 14:1, Isa. 56:6-8, Rom. 11:17-26, Eph. 2:19, Eph. 3:6, Rev. 21:12.
Eze 47:23 “And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger sojourns, there you give him his inheritance,” declares the Master YHVH.
Let alone the FACT, that in Mashiyach/Messiah we become ONE people!!!
ONE YHVH/YAHWEH, ONE MASHIYACH/MESSIAH, ONE TORAH, ONE PEOPLE!
Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah Yeshua unto good works, which Elohim prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Eph 2:11 Therefore remember that you, once gentiles(1) in the flesh, who are called ‘the uncircumcision’ by what is called ‘the circumcision’ made in the flesh by hands, Footnote: (1)1 Cor. 12:2.
Eph 2:12 that at that time you were without Messiah, excluded from the citizenship of Yisrael and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no expectation and without Elohim in the world.
Eph 2:13 But now in Messiah Yeshua you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah.
OUT OF EVERY TRIBE AND TONGUE/LANGUAGE AND PEOPLE AND NATION!!!
Revelation 5:9 And they sang a renewed song, saying, “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals, because You were slain, and have redeemed us to Elohim by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
Rev 5:10 and made us sovereigns and priests to our Elohim, and we shall reign upon the earth.”(1) Footnote: 1Dan. 7:18-27.
Rev 5:11 And I looked, and I heard the voice of many messengers around the throne, and the living creatures, and the elders.
And the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands,
Rev 5:12 saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb having been slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and respect and esteem and blessing!”
Rev 5:13 And every creature which is in the heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying, “To Him sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb, be the blessing and the respect and the esteem and the might, forever and ever!”
Rev 5:14 And the four living creatures said, “Amein!” And the twenty-four elders fell down and bowed before Him who lives forever and ever.
Shalom/Peace human beings created in the image of Elohim/G-d!
Eliyah Ben Yisrael
