Before Jesus Christ there were two races on the earth: the Jew – God’s chosen people, and the Gentile – everyone else. However, through the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of the Lord Jesus a new race was birthed. The third race. An eternal race.
Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God. (1 Cor. 10:32)
This race is marked by it’s full dependence on and identity in Jesus Christ. It is made of humans who have recognized and accepted their death with Christ and are living a resurrected life by the Spirit of God dwelling in them. In this race there is no more the separation of Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female, rich or poor. All are one with Christ, one in Christ, one for Christ, one by Christ.
For He Himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that He might create in Himself one new man in place of the two… (Ephesians 2:14-15)
In the 3rd race Jesus is the All in All. By the 3rd race the world will come to know Jesus as the All in All.
The 3rd race is the Body of Jesus Christ.
The 3rd race is the Bride of Jesus Christ.
The 3rd race is the House of God.
The 3rd race is the Family of God.
The 3rd race is the Temple of the Holy Spirit.
The 3rd race is the Church.
