There is a whole theological system of thought today that is called ‘replacement theology’ that suggests that Israel failed in their mission to evangelize the world and so God replaced Israel with the Church. They believe this to the point that anywhere they see Israel in scripture, they substitute ‘the church’. Consequently, they do not pay any attention to prophetic scripture because the signs of the end that show Israel being restored and Jerusalem being a bowl of contention is past and has no relevance to our day or the end time.
Very briefly, I want to suggest, ISRAEL DID NOT FAIL!
- ISRAEL FULFILLED GOD’S PLAN AND BIRTHED THE MESSIAH, the savior of mankind. Revelation 12:5 says, “She bore a male child who was to rule all nations…” This was Israel who gave birth to the Messiah.
- ISRAEL FULFILLED GOD’S PLAN AND BIRTHED THE CHURCH. Acts 2:5ff “And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.” In the synagogue ten were needed to have a prayer meeting. On the day of Pentecost, at least symbolically there were 10 from each of the twelve tribes of Israel; 120 present for the birth of the Church.
- ISRAEL WILL FULFILL GOD’S PLAN AND BRING FORTH THE GREATEST REVIVAL EARTH HAS KNOWN! (Right after the Groom has come for His Bride)
GOD IS NOT FINISHED WITH ISRAEL!
