And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

Who are the children of Israel?

According to my friends the Karaite Jewsanyone who

  1. Is circumcised (males only),
  2. Accepts the God of Israel (YHWH) as their own God, and
  3. Accepts the People of Israel as their own people

is a full-fledged Jew or Israelite.

According to my friends at the Biblical Foundation Academychildren of Israel are

  1. Children of the stranger that join themselves to the LORD
  2. Who love the name of the Lord
  3. To be his servants
  4. Who keep his Sabbath
  5. Take hold of His covenant


Part of GOD’s posse

The above descriptions of children of Israel is according to biblical principles. Scripture does not tell us that in order to be considered part of GOD’s posse one needs to be of Jewish heritage, be signed up with a church, synagogue or denomination.

GOD says; Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him … Mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.

Jesus, who is of Jewish heritage, says where two or three are gathered in his name, there am I in the midst of them.

And whosoever will let him take the water of life freely.
