Normally, discussions about One New Man focus on Jew and Gentile needing to reconcile. Usually, this conversation breaks down over the place of Israel in the Kingdom and end times. People rarely think, much less act, on the purpose behind the Lord calling us to be the One New Man. The fundamental issue of identity has been overlooked.

Normally, discussions about One New Man focus on Jew and Gentile needing to reconcile. Usually, this conversation breaks down over the place of Israel in the Kingdom and end times. People rarely think, much less act, on the purpose behind the Lord calling us to be the One New Man. The fundamental issue of identity has been overlooked. When people recognize that their true identity is their Messiah, they will be drawn into a closer relationship with God. They have been born into a time where biblical prophecy is confirming that the unity between Jew and Gentile is ushering in a new season of outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord is calling them to join in. There is a call in this season, as confirmed in Ephesians 2 and 3, for Jew and Gentile to come together as One New Man and to walk as joint heirs in the commonwealth of Israel. When Jew and Gentile come together as One, the Lord has stored up a release of blessing and power that will forever change humanity’s destiny.

God's Plan for Peace and Reconciliation between the Jew and the Gentile Robert F. Wolff has collaborated with a broad spectrum of the worlds leading Messianic and Gentiles promoting reconciliation among believers in this compilation of essays "Awakening the One New Man," A unique feature in the discussions of these authors and theologians is that they go beyond talking about the place of Israel in end times. They describe God's purpose and plan for His Kingdom as a message of peace and reconciliation between the Jew and the Gentile. God is calling us (Christian and Messianic Jew) to be the "One New Man" described in Ephesians 2:14 - 16: To identity with the Messiah that opens a relationship with God and to walk as joint heirs with Him, Jew and Gentile. I was fascinated with Peter Tsukarhir's contribution as an Asian American Israeli. He concludes with formula for prayer for the peace of Jerusalem as one that calls for the Prince of Peace to rule in the hearts of Jerusalem's people and that He will bring Jews and Gentiles together as One New Man His beloved body, the end-time Bride. Sandra Teplinsky uses the story of Ruth and Naomi from the Old Testament as the "Model of Reconciliation and Redemption." Jane Hansen Hoyt describes the Master Plan for "One New Man" as the reconciled, reunified body of Messiah. The biographical sketches of the twelve contributing authors read like a "Who's Who" among Christian and Messianic leadership in a crusade to promote a World Peace Team through reconciliation. Other contributors include: Ray Gannon, Mitch Glaser, Craig Keener, Daniel Juster, Michael brown Jonathan Bernis, These writers are all articulate, passionate in their conviction, and convincing in their presentation. Raleigh Washington and Bill McCartney well known for their active involvement in the Promise Keepers movement are recognized for their efforts in reconciling diversities among Christians and ethnic groups. Washington draws on the emphasis found in the prayer of Jesus found in John 17 calling for oneness. McCartney sums up the heartbeat on one new man as meaning Jew and Gentile believers accepting god's providence and Jewish believers awakening to the call to walk together.
