Luke does not say that the Kingdom of God is made up of the house of Jacob. Also, what the angel decalared to Mary has happened. While I understand Mormons are still waiting for Jesus to reign, all of mainstream Christianity know that He reigns now.

That is why it is so important to understand the Abrahamic covenant and the covenant Jesus made with Jacob. (read Genesis 28:20-22) And why it is important for the "sons of Jacob" to return to the ordinaces of the Lord and to pay tithing to prepare for the Lord's second coming. (see Malachi 3:6-10) Here are the verses from the New Testament:
Some kind of grand leap you have going there.

"And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shll be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever." (Luke 1:31-33) emphasis added
Jesus is the fulfillment of Jewish prophecy. Gentiles do not become Jewish, Jesus Christ is the Word of God, and God's Word, in the new and everlasting covenant, is for ALL.
The violence we preach is not the violence of the sword, the violence of hatred. It is the violence of love, of brotherhood, the violence that wills to beat weapons into sickles for work. óBlessed Archbishop ”scar Romero

Like this one?

Constituion were inspired of God.

Yet Joseph was continually violating the US Constitution. You do not see the conundrum?
