Must Needs Be Circumcised

Must Needs Be Circumcised

There are plenty of opinions in this matter, and people feel rather strongly in their positions towards if someone (especially an infant) should be or should not be circumcised, mainly pertaining to males.

This posting, as all postings on this site is based on scripture and not our opinions.

The bottom-line is that God made a covenant with Abraham to keep. This is the covenant; every male child of Abraham’s house, physical and spiritual, needs to be circumcised. There may be a sigh of relief because some people presume they are not part of the household of Abraham.

Must Needs Be Circumcised

Oh contrary, if one wants to take part of Jesus, one is taking part in the household of Abraham. Please read the entire book of Galatians for clarification on this.

The original command from God was for men and women to have their sons circumcised on the eighth day (another spiritual meaning and implication), in all generations. This included those born from the mother and father, and those adopted and brought into the family (Genesis 17:12).

Must Needs Be Circumcised to Take Part of God

It does not matter if they are not of your physical seed, once they are brought into the family, or the commonwealth of Israel, they are yours and must needs be circumcised physically.

See verse 13 in Genesis 17

13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

If you’re born in the house, or bought with money, a male must needs be circumcised, and God’s covenant will be a signature or token of the everlasting covenant. Let’s say someone decides to go with just the spiritual circumcision, that is circumcision of the heart (mind), that is like agreeing to purchase a house, but never signing the paperwork.

Male Childs Must Needs Be Circumcised

The signature is the physical circumcision.

People who choose not to have this uncomfortable, yet simple procedure done will have to face verse 14 of the same chapter, which says:

14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

That soul will be cut off from God’s people because they have broken God’s covenant. Mothers and fathers who do not circumcised their males sons, but wait to let them do it or ignore it all together, may have to stand judgement for being an accomplice to the breaking of the covenant.

The circumcision is a prerequisite for anyone to enter into Jesus’ temple in His Kingdom when He returns to the earth in the future. We can read in Ezekiel for that.

Avoid your own thoughts on this, maintain what the scriptures says, and the scriptures utters two strongly urgent words in the english language. Male child must needs be circumcised to enter into God’s covenant.

    This is not the right pate to post this but I am at my wits end trying to help someone fulfill what he believes his work for God is in this world. So I use all avenues available to me.

    I have met someone I have known for quite sometime now through a pen pal service for inmates in prison. I am a Christian and read my Bible regularly and the 2 Scripture passages that inspired me to do this are:

    Matthew 25:36 (NIV)
    36 ‘I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

    Hebrews 13:3 (NIV)
    3 “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners.”

    I did some serious thinking and prayed for God’s direction and when I felt it in my heart I knew it was God directing me to do this. So, I felt this was a service to God I must fulfill. I even had to think twice about writing to someone who had committed murder, but then God brought Moses and King David to my mind. David’s was even premeditated. So I felt again God brought these 2 people to my mind to show me He forgives all and these were very prominent people in Scripture.

    I then began my quest.

    One of the inmates I write to has proven t me to be honest and trustworthy, and honest; taking full responsibility for his actions and admits he deserved his punishment.

    Since he has been incarcerated for 20 years he has given his life to Jesus Christ and I have told him that means his sin is forgiven. Sin is sin to God, it doesn’t matter the size of it.

    He has worked hard at Bible study courses and self-help courses. What he would really love to do when he is released is to work with today’s youth and help them from making the same destructive mistake he did with gangs when he was a very young teenager.

    My inquiry: First of all he is indigent. Does anyone know of free Christian counseling courses he could take via U.S. Mail? He does not have access to a computer.

    I firmly believe in him or I would not be trying to help him find a pro bono lawyer; which we have 2 very good leads on, and I would not spend so much time trying to help him further his education. I know these things are out there, it’s just a matter of finding them and that sometimes depends upon what you put in the search engine.

    Again, I apologize if I have way out of bounds writing this here, but I am desperate and look wherever I can. I would deeply appreciate anyone who could give me any info. they may know of.

    Thank you all for your time and consideration in this matter. May God bless you all.

    Most Sincerely,

  2. Judy Judy

    I meant to leave my email address in my first post. It is

    Please email me if you even think you may know of a place. Ronald and I would be very grateful.

    If I have imposed upon you, please feel free to delete this and my first post. I will not be offended. I am only trying to do God’s work for me in anyway I can.
