Is God all through with Israel?
There is a false teaching that because we are Abraham's seed that God
is all through with Israel, as a nation. This is not true. The church
is not Israel. Some Jews, as individual, and some Gentiles compose the
church which is, not Israel remade, but a new man. Eph 2:14,15, "For
he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the
middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the
enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to
make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;"
The key verse of the Bible is, "Give none offence, neither to
the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:"
1 Cor. 10:32, We must never interweave these, the one is not the
other. We have these in Noah's three sons. "And
he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of
servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be
the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall
enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan
shall be his servant." Gen. 9:25-27
1-Shem--The Jews and nation of Israel
2-Japheth--The Church, comes into the tents
(covenants) of Israel Eph 2:12
3-Ham--The Gentiles--Great mass of people that will
be saved in Rev
7:9 These are called the sheep nations in Matt. 25:33,34 "And
he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed
of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation
of the world:" These are mentioned again in Rev 21:24
In Gen 12:2,3, we have the same three, "And I will make of thee a
great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou
shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse
him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be
Great nation --Israel
Bless them that bless thee--The church. Those that accept the true
Jewish Messiah, that Israel rejected, during this age.
Families of the earth--The rest of the Gentile world. Rev. 7:9
Whether Jews, Gentiles or the Church, all blessing flow to mankind from
God through Abraham.
The Church does not replace Israel.
Here are some verses about the future nation of Israel;
Isa 45:17 But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting
salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without
V.25 In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and
shall glory.Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it
is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn
away ungodliness from Jacob:
Isaiah 54:8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment;
but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD
Isaiah 60:19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day;
neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the
LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
