Blood Ties Forever explores the church’s need for reconciliation with the Jewish nation and encourages a rebirth of meaningful respect worldwide for different ethnic groups. Dr. Royce Woods, senior pastor of Holy Trinity Worship Center International in Washington, D.C., introduces the truth and offers purpose and direction as he promotes the resurrection of the original Jerusalem Council, once removed forcibly by those who opposed it. Woods begins by detailing his own spiritual journey as the seventeenth of eighteen children who grew up on the streets of Washington, D.C. and transitions into a discussion about why, out of all the ethnic groups of the world, none have exemplified the idea of blood ties like the Nation of Israel—descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the primary targets of dark forces bent on destroying their bloodline. Woods includes applicable scripture as he encourages the removal of the center and head of the church in spirit and in practice from Rome back to the heart of Jerusalem. Blood Ties Forever transports others on an amazing journey into the mind of God, ultimately illustrating that God’s promises will indeed be a blessing to all people as His gift to the world.
It is imperative that we understand that for the first time in our generation, every prayer set before God has an exceptional possibility of being answered. We are definitely living in a season of recovery, and the re-establishment of the Jerusalem Council in Jerusalem is part of that recovery process. For years we have grappled with the question; why have we not shared the abundant blessings, and miracles of the first church as many of our Judeo-Christian leaders have promised? The answer is now before us, we must first return to God’s pattern and design to recreate the “blessing zone”. Our God is a God of atmosphere, who dwells in the midst of His people and their praises. We have learned that atmosphere fosters or advances attitudes, and attitudes have much to say about how we conduct business. “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;” Romans 12:10-11 KJV
