Replacement Theology

Has God Rejected Israel?


Replacement theology

Only faith in Jesus has the power to save us.
Jesus Himself said that He is the only way to salvation (John 14:16). To leave out that fact is to weaken the concept of faith by implying that whatever you believe in is OK just as long as you have faith and act on it.
“Finally, without David, there would be no future Messiah, for it is through the line of David that a Messiah is promised (Jer. 23:5, 6; Rev. 22:16). Israelite history would need to be completely rewritten. Yet, that history, as it reads in Scripture, is precisely what gives Israel and the church its unique role and mission.”

This statement illustrates a profound confusion over the difference between the role of Israel and that of the Church. They each have their own unique role, and they are in no way the same thing. This confusion is actually a statement that comes out of the misguided idea called Replacement Theology—the idea that God has rejected Israel and transferred everything, at least the blessings of the old covenant, to the Church.

But a quick reading of Romans chapters 9–11 firmly shoots down that absurd idea. And an understanding of end times, along with understanding the purpose of the coming Tribulation, shows how the future of each is vastly different in God’s plans.

    The history behind Replacement Theology. Great information!
    Part 1
    Part 2
    The true apostasy of the early Church! It began early. I think it is understandable. The Apostles were all Jews, but after their death the majority of Church leaders were Gentile. In their love for Christ and human weakness they began to take on an air of superiority and a human tendency to place blame. Thus they began blaming the Jews for killing Christ. Early on they were persecuted and expelled from the Jewish
    Synagogues by Jewish leaders. This attitude progressed to a hatred of the Jewish people who had no part of the Crucifixion of Christ. Remember, Christ himself condemned the Jewish leaders, he did not condemn the rank and file! Plain Scripture tells us that the Jewish people will accept Christ!
    Satan hates the Jewish people! He expounds this hatred throughout the world! He promotes that antisemitism by inspiring this idea that the Jews killed Christ! Is that true?
    Acts 4:27 27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.
    No not just Jews! Plain Scripture tells us it was Herod, Pontius Pilate together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel represented by the Jewish religious leaders!
    Please watch these two videos. It fully addresses this topic!

    This is a concept that was adopted in the early part of the 20th century I never knew about it but I was taught that Jehovah’s witnesses were the Jews spoken of in the Bible when good things were said.
    When bad things were said it was “Christendom” referring to other Christian religions outside of the witnesses.

    It is a blessing to have learned this fact and corrected my thinking on this.
