The Church is Not Israel & Has Not Replaced Israel
Because of Replacement Theology, Gentiles since the Reformation have been taught that the Gentile Church has replaced Israel in the promises of God.
This is biblically and patently false!
God did not make a covenant with the Gentile church. The Church is NOT even Gentile in it’s very nature. Christ Jesus is the very root of the natural olive tree that is Israel, with believing Jews as the natural branches and believing Gentiles as the wild branches grafted in. Grafted in to Israel by God’s New Covenant with Israel that he promised in Jeremiah 31:31 to ISRAEL!
The Church was birthed by God the Father through Jesus Messiah as a result of the New Covenant promised by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Christ Jesus’ death, resurrection, ascension, and sending of the Holy Spirit is the institution of that New Covenant and the recipients were first and foremeost, believing Israel (Jews!). The last recipients will also be Jews! In fact, many Jews are coming to faith in Yeshua the Messiah even now in spite of being mostly neglected by Gentiles in the Church because of Replacement Theology.
In these last days, the fulness of the Gentiles is coming to it’s foretold end and God the Father is turning again to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, the natural branches.
Just as the unfaithful natural olive branches that rejected Jesus as Messiah were broken off and cast into the fire 🔥to make room for the faithful wild olive branches…. So the unfaithful wild olive branches will be broken off (because of apostasy) and cast into the fire 🔥 to make room for the natural olive branches that are faithfully turning to Jesus as Messiah in these last days before His return to establish His kingdom on earth in Jerusalem, and sit on the throne of David.
