Through Christ, it is now possible for divorced Ephraim (the entire Northern Kingdom) to become the prophesied multitude of nations – the fullness of Gentiles – and not just be scattered among them. That’s right! The fullness of Gentiles refers to the House of Israel (Ephraim) that was scattered and completely absorbed by the world’s Gentile nations and, thus, became Gentiles themselves.
The biblical definition of faith, and by extension the definition of belief, is NOT: knowing and affirming truth, with the exception of being obedient to God’s Divine Truth. However, the definition of intellectual assent IS: knowing and affirming truth, with the exception of being obedient to God’s Divine Truth. Intellectual assent also is defined as: a decision made in our minds that lacks the full commitment of our hearts (human spirits).
