19 Sep Is Israel Forever?
Before the foundation of the world, God chose each one of us …
Ephesians 1:4, “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world.”
If God Almighty chose each one of us, He chose every leader of every nation from the beginning until now, including Israel for His sovereign, divine purposes.
Daniel 2:20-21, “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His, and He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings.”
When God formed the world, the earth was formed in the center of the universe, and geographically, Israel is the center of the world and universe.
Zechariah 2:8, “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ” He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.”
God has always had a plan for the nation of Israel. Unfortunately, from the early church unto this day, antisemitism has caused hatred and doubt in the minds of a lot of christian believers as well as non-believers. Replacement theology has taken some of our institutions and churches over, leaving christian believers the grave impression that the Lord is finished with Israel. Replacement theology believes God is finished with Israel, the Jewish people, and it teaches that the promises of God in the Holy Bible are for the church and not Israel. This theology also states that the church gets the blessings and Israel gets the curses. Replacement theology believes the Jewish people have no future in God’s prophecies in the Holy Bible. Furthermore, it teaches that the covenants God made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were forfeited when Israel rejected Jesus Christ at his first coming. None of these things could be further from the truth.
Colossians 2:8-9, “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (All of God was in Christ’s body). And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”
Replacement theology is not biblical, an abomination, blasphemous, and it is a delusion from Satan. From Genesis to Revelation, the Holy Bible is very clear of Israel’s past, its future, and God’s eternal promise to bless Israel forever.
Revelation 22:18-19, “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Amen
Make no mistake about it, God has chosen the Jewish people, Israel, and Jerusalem for His majestic name to be glorified and exalted above every other name. The Lord ordained the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel) to spread the message of salvation to the world.
Genesis 12:2-3, the Lord states to Abraham, ” I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curse you; And in you ALL the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
In the Abrahamic covenant, God promised Abraham this vow. Almighty God never breaks His promises; He cannot, as He is holy and righteous. This covenant was confirmed again by the Lord to Abraham.
Genesis 21:12, “But God said to Abraham, Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of Ishmael or Hagar. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.”
The Lord confirms the covenant with Isaac in Genesis.
Genesis 26:2-5, “Do not go to Egypt; live in the land which I shall tell you. Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for you and your descendants I give ALL these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants ALL of these lands; and in your seed ALL nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statues, and My laws.”
God confirmed the covenant with Isaac’s son Jacob (Israel) in Genesis.
Genesis 28:13-15, “I am the Lord God of Abraham and the God of Isaac your father; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed ALL the families of the earth shall be blessed. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”
Jacob (Israel) told Joseph his son that the Lord spoke to him.
Genesis 48:4, “Behold, I will make you fruitful and multiply you, an I will make of you a multitude of people, and give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession.”
When God Almighty says everlasting, it is everlasting, forever and ever. He has promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel) and their descendants the Promised Land forever. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ stated in Matthew.
Matthew 10:5, “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles (non-Jews), and do not enter the city of Samaria. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
Why did Messiah tell the disciples that? Because of the covenant God made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Israel (Jewish people) was chosen by our Lord to spread the gospel of salvation, first to the Jews, and then equally to the Gentiles. Why did God choose Israel and the Jewish people?
Deuteronomy 7:6-11, “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above ALL the people on the face of the earth. The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all people; but because the Lord loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you. Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenants and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; and He repays those who hate Him to their face, to destroy them.”
Are the Jewish people better than the Gentiles?
Deuteronomy 9:6, “Therefore understand that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stiff necked people.”
God chose the Jewish people to carry out the message of salvation for HIM to be glorified, first to the Jewish people, and then equally to the Gentiles.
Acts 2:1-4, “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
Acts 2:41, “Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.“
Romans 1:16. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, since it is God’s powerful means of bringing salvation to everyone who believes, for the Jew first but equally for the Gentile.”
God chose Israel and the Jewish people to spread the message of the Lord’s salvation to all of the nations of the earth. He told the 12 apostles (all Jewish) to spread the “good news” to all parts of the world.
Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
The Future of Israel
Throughout the Holy Bible, God judges Israel for their sin and rebellion to Him. Replacement Theology and other antisemitic people have taken the Scriptures out of context when the Lord has judged them, especially when He allowed them to be destroyed in 586 BC and 70 AD. However, in ALL of these cases of judgement, He clearly states that He will leave a “remnant” of the people because of His promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel). For example: (Isaiah 2,4,11,27,31,35,43,48,49,51,52,54,62,66; Jeremiah 16,30,31,33,46; Ezekiel 11,14,16,20,34,36,37). There are many more examples one could refer to as well. In Jeremiah, He prophesies about Messiah’s second coming in which Israel will be saved forever.
Jeremiah 23:5-6, “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness (Messiah Jesus); A King shall reign and prosper, And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. In His days Judah (Jerusalem) will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”
It is very clear that Messiah will come and redeem Israel and the remnant that He has kept safe throughout the generations to fulfill His promises to the Patriarchs.
Jeremiah 23:7-8, “Therefore, behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that they shall no longer say, ‘As the Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘As the Lord lives who brought up and led the descendants of the house of Israel from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them.’ And they shall dwell in their own land.”
In Joel 3, the Lord judges the nations who turn against Israel.
Joel 3:1-17, “For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. They have cast lots for My people, have given a boy as payment for a harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they may drink. “Indeed, what have you to do with Me, O Tyre and Sidon, and all the coasts of Philistia? Will you retaliate against Me? But if you retaliate against Me, swiftly and speedily I will return your retaliation upon your own head; Because you have taken My silver and My gold, and have carried into your temples My prized possessions. Also the people of Judah and the people of Jerusalem, You have sold to the Greeks, that you may remove them far from their borders. “Behold, I will raise them out of the place to which you have sold them, and will return your retaliation upon your own head. I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off; For the Lord has spoken.” Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near, Let them come up. Beat your plowshares into sword. And your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’”Assemble and come, all you nations, And gather together all around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O Lord. “Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; For the winepress is full, The vats overflow, For their wickedness is great.” Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and moon will grow dark, And the stars will diminish their brightness. The Lord also will roar from Zion, And utter His voice from Jerusalem; The heavens and earth will shake; But the Lord will be a shelter for His people, And the strength of the children of Israel. “So you shall know that I am the Lord your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. Then Jerusalem shall be holy, And no aliens shall ever pass through her again.”
All of the nations will be judged by how they treat Israel, including America. Also, we as individuals will be judged, as well.
Genesis 12:2-3, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curse you.”
Ezekiel tells us which nations God judges in the end because of their treatment of Israel. (Ezekiel chapters 25-32). Also, He promised them land forever. To this day, the Jewish people have not controlled and inhabited all of the Promised Land which the Lord gave them. The Holy Bible clearly states the area and the boundaries that God promised the Jewish people would inherit one day.
Genesis 13:14, “And the Lord said to Abraham, “Lift up your eyes now and look from the place where you are; northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”
Abraham was standing in the West Bank when the Lord spoke to him.
Genesis 15:18-21, “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt (the nile river, modern day Egypt and Sudan) to the great river, the river Euphrates (modern day Iraq); the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Grirgashites, and the Jebusites (the land from the Kenites to the Jebusites is Egypt, Sudan, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, part of Asian Turkey, and of course all of Israel, including Gaza and the West Bank.”
Israel has never had complete control over all of this land. The Lord doesn’t say when this will happen, but He does say they will inherit ALL of this land based on His timing.
Joel 3:18-21, “And it will come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drip with new wine, the hills shall flow with milk, and all the brooks of Israel shall be flooded with water; A fountain shall flow from the house of the Lord and water the Valley of Acacias. Egypt shall be desolate, and Edom (Jordan) a desolate wilderness, because of the violence against the people of Israel, for they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Israel shall abide forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. For I will acquit them of the guilt of bloodshed, whom I had not acquitted. For the Lord dwells in Zion (Jerusalem)!”
The Lord confirms He will dwell in Zion (Jerusalem), the holy city, forever! Again, this rebukes the theory of Replacement Theology. Furthermore, Messiah told the Jewish people that He would not see them again until they said, “Baruch Haba Beshem Adonai, (Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord).”
Matthew 23:39, “For I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.”
When Jesus spoke these words, He was standing on the Mount of Olives. According to Zechariah, the Mount of Olives is the exact location where He will return.
Zechariah 14:4, “And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.”
Obviously, the Almighty is not finished with the Jewish people and the land of Israel if they will be in Jerusalem for Messiah’s second coming, rebuking Replacement Theology. Also, the Almighty promises to make Jerusalem a mighty force to all surrounding nations.
Zechariah 12:2, “Behold! I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Jerusalem has been destroyed twice (586 BC & 70AD). After the Roman destruction in 70AD, the Jewish people were exiled and scattered from Israel until 1948 (became a nation) & 1967 (captured Jerusalem). All of the nations of the earth have never been against it at one time. However, in the future, ALL nations will be against it. We see in Joel 3:1-7 (above) what happens to those nations who come against Israel.
The Eternal Promise
Jeremiah 23:3-4, “But I will gather the remnant of My flock (Israelis) out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds (Israel); and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking,” says the Lord.”
The first part of this prophecy was fulfilled in 1948 & 1967, “gather the remnant out of all countries back to Israel,” and this prophecy is still being fulfilled today as many Jewish people are going “home” to Israel (Aliyah). There will be one more “troubled time,” called “The Time of Jacob’s (Israel’s) trouble,” which is the 7 year tribulation period of the Antichrist. When Messiah comes back for His second coming, and destroys Antichrist, then “Israel “shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall be lacking.” During the seven year tribulation, God will protect His remnant of Israel (The Sealed of Israel).
Revelation 7: 1-8, “After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads. And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: 12,000 times 12= 144,000
of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.”
Revelation 14:1-5, “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.” Amen
The Almighty’s promises are forever. God has promised Israel there will always be a covenant between them, as they are and always will be His chosen people. His everlasting and unconditional covenants will be fulfilled forever. Israel has broken God’s conditional promises, and have paid a devastating penalty. They have been destroyed twice (586 BC & AD70), exiled many times from their land, and scattered across the world. However, the Lord always remembers His promises and covenants with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Almighty has always kept a remnant of Israel and the Jewish people from all of its catastrophes, just as He promised the Patriarchs He would do.
Psalms 105:7-12, “He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all of the earth, He remembers His covenants forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, The covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac, and confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, saying, ‘To you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance.”
The true and eternal promise, which the Almighty vows to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles, is stated in Romans.
Romans 11: “I say then, has God rejected Israel and the Jewish people? Heaven forbid! For I myself am a son of Israel, from the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God has not rejected His people, whom He chose in advance. Or don’t you know what the scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel saying, ‘Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your alters, and I alone am left, and they seek my life?’ But what does the divine Lord say to him? “I have kept for myself seven thousand men who have not knelt down to Ba’al (idols).” It is the same way in the present age: there is a remnant, chosen by the grace of God. Israel’s rejection is not final. “In that case, I say, isn’t it that they have stumbled with the result that they have permanently fallen away? Heaven forbid! Quite the contrary, it is by means of their stumbling that the deliverance has come to the Gentiles, in order to provoke them to jealousy. Moreover, if their stumbling is bringing riches to the world, that is, if Israel’s being placed temporarily in a condition less favored than that of the Gentiles is bringing riches to the latter – how much greater riches will Israel in its fullness bring them! However, to those of you who are Gentiles I say this: since I myself am an apostle sent to the Gentiles, I make known the importance of my work in the hope that somehow I may provoke some of my own people to jealousy and save some of them! For if their casting Jesus aside means reconciliation for the world, what will their accepting him mean? It will be life from the dead! For if the firstfruit (Jesus) is holy, the lump is also holy. And if the root is holy, so are the branches. But if some of the branches were broken off, and you – a wild olive – were grafted in among them and have become equal sharers in the rich root of the olive tree, then don’t boast as if you were better than the branches! However, if you do boast, remember that you are not supporting the root, the root is supporting you. So you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” True, but so what? They were broken off because of their lack of trust. However, you keep your place only because of your trust. So don’t be arrogant; on the contrary, be terrified! For if God did not spare the natural branches, he certainly won’t spare you! So take a good look at God’s kindness and his severity: on the one hand, severity toward those who fell off; but, on the other hand, God’s kindness toward you – provided you maintain yourself in that kindness! Otherwise, you too will be cut off! Moreover, the others, if they do not persist in their lack of trust, will be grafted in; because God is able to graft them back in. For if you were cut out of what is by nature a wild olive tree and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree (Israel), how much more will these natural branches be grafted back into their own olive tree! For, brothers, I want you to understand this truth which God formerly concealed but has now revealed, so that you won’t imagine you know more than you actually do. It is that stoniness, to a degree, has come upon Israel, until the Gentile world enters in its fullness; and that it is in this way that all Israel will be saved. As it is written, “Out of Zion (Jerusalem) will come the Redeemer; he will turn away ungodliness from Jacob and this will be My covenant with them, . . . when I take away their sins.” But with respect to being chosen they are loved for the Patriarchs’ sake (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), for God’s free gifts and his calling are irrevocable. Just as you yourselves were disobedient to God before but have received mercy now because of Israel’s disobedience; so also Israel has been disobedient now, so that by your showing them the same mercy that God has shown you, they too may now receive God’s mercy. For God has shut up all mankind together in disobedience, in order that he might show mercy to all. O the depth of the riches and the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments! How unsearchable are His ways! For, ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord? Who has been his counselor?’ Or, ‘Who has given him anything and made him pay it back?’ For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever!”
What did Jesus say about the Prophets and the Law of the Torah (First five books of the Holy Bible)? Were they to be forgotten or replaced with new theology?
Matthew 5:17-18, “Do not think I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For assuredly I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till ALL is fulfilled.”
Without question, this includes the nation of Israel and the prophecies for Israel.
Jeremiah 31:35-36, “Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun as light for the day, who ordained the laws for the moon and stars to provide light for the night, who stirs up the sea until its waves roar (The Lord of Hosts is His name), if those things depart from before Me, says the Lord, then the seed of Israel shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.”
Obviously, the Almighty controls these things, so it is impossible for them to cease without His authority, just as it is impossible for Israel and the Jewish people to cease without His authority.
Jeremiah 31:37, “If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done.”
As we know, no one can measure heaven or the foundations of the earth beneath. When the Lord comes back to tabernacle among His people (Feast of Tabernacles/1,000 year reign), the earth and the first heaven pass away. And the new heaven and the new earth will come. This is called the “New Jerusalem.”
Revelation 21:1-6, “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.”
– Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is Jewish, and He is the “King of the Jews,” literally.
-All of the Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob (Israel) were Jewish. Remember God changed Jacob’s name to Israel.
-All of the Major Prophets, Judges, and Kings of the Old Testament were Jewish.
-All 12 Tribes of Israel were Jewish; (Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, & Benjamin)
-All 12 Disciples/Apostles were Jewish; John, Peter, James (brother of John and son of Zebedee), Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, James (son of Alpheus), Thaddaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot. After Judas Iscariot hung himself after betraying Messiah, Matthias was added.
-The Apostle Paul was Jewish
Past Historical Events
Aligning biblical prophecy with world history gives even more concrete proof of God’s plan for Israel. Let’s look at a few of these events. In 1492, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain kicked the Jewish people out of Spain. (The Spanish Inquisition). The Jewish people had to leave Spain or be killed. Shortly after, Christopher Columbus (Jewish) set sail for the new world with mostly Jewish people on the ships. America would not have been founded at that particular time if the King and Queen of Spain had not exiled the Jewish people from Spain. In 1948, Israel became a nation.
Isaiah 66:8 prophesies Israel becoming a nation in 1948; “Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once?”
Israel became a nation in one day, on May 14,1948. Even the non-believers and the critics cannot deny this act of God! Although they may challenge the dates the prophets wrote the books, they would have to agree that Isaiah was written before 1948! Britain, America, the United Nations, and others can take credit, but it was God Almighty’s influence among men (Daniel 2:20-21) that enabled Israel to become a nation. This is totally amazing how the Jewish people could become a nation in one day! God prophesied they would become a nation again after they were destroyed for disobedience, and it was fulfilled to the exact year.*
In 1967, the Six-Day War between the Arabs and the Israeli people, Israel, being a very young nation of only 19 years, defeated Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon to regain the holy city of Jerusalem. These five countries had the support of Algeria, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Pakistan, PLO, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Tunisia. This is incredible! How can you build a dominant military in 19 years? You cannot without the blessing of the Lord. With God Almighty’s hand, Israel won the war in six days and rested on the Sabbath. Nothing short of spectacular!
The Word of God, the Holy Bible, is very clear about the Almighty’s plans for Israel’s future and eternal glory. From Genesis to Revelation, it precisely states His intentions for Israel. The Almighty has stamped His name on Israel, claiming Jerusalem, forever! Satan and all of humanity cannot change His will or change His Holy Bible to fit their blasphemous ideas of how the church replaces Israel and claims their blessings.
James 2:19, “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe, and tremble!”
Replacement theology is a false theology, and a blasphemous abomination, that does not hold any value whatsoever, when compared to the Holy Bible. Israel, Jerusalem, and the Jewish people will always be “the apple of God’s eye,” and as Gentile Christians and Jewish Christians, we should embrace the salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ and be thankful we are grafted (Gentile) or re-grafted (Jew) in the olive tree (Israel). (Romans 11). I pray and hope that we will acknowledge the truth of God’s Holy Bible, His Living Word, and embrace the heritage of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen, Amen, Amen
