Readers Question / Comment - Are Christians the new 'spiritual
I really need to ask you about the content below that I read
on a website:
"DUAL COVENANT THEOLOGY DEBUNKED
12: 3 is THE verse that modern day Judaizers wrench from its context-
Satan's oldest trade. When reading any Scripture, the principles of exegesis
must apply. Those unskilled in these principles, are easy pickings for
Satan's DOCTRINALLY seducing demons (1 Timothy 4: 1-2). Genesis 12: 3 was a
promise made to Abraham THEN. Also, the first time "Israel" is
mentioned in Scripture is in Genesis 32: 28. Today we have a New Covenant
ratified in Christ's Blood. The modern physical/national Israel of today has
been hijacked by the Saturnalian Brotherhood, who call themselves jews but are
not (Revelation 3: 9) They are the synagogue of Satan, the inner 13 Illuminatus
bloodline. The true Israel of today is a SPIRITUAL one. You'd be doing
violence to Romans 2: 28-29 among many others by defying that. You will agree
that each man has to be born again INDIVIDUALLY, be he jew or gentile, in order
to see/enter the Kingdom of God. Israel as a nation is not and can never be, born
again, at least not corporately.
Romans 2: 28-29 28 For he is not a Jew,
which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the
flesh: 29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the
heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of
1 Corinthians 10: 18 Behold Israel after the FLESH.
3-4 "..my kinsmen according to the FLESH: Who are Israelites.
6: 16 ...the Israel of God.
Romans 9: 6. ...For they are not all Israel [of
God], which are of Israel [after the FLESH]. 7 Neither because they are the seed
of Abraham, are they all children: but in Isaac shall thy seed be called. (see
vs. 8 as well).
That is, not all who are literal Israelites are part of
"the Israel of God." There is an election of GRACE which constitutes
SPIRITUAL Israel, and it is comprised of both jews AND gentiles (which is not the
Compare Romans 9: 1-3 to Galatians 6: 14-16. What is the
difference between the two Israels?
Only those who are born again are
God's spiritual children (John 1: 11-13). God is not a respecter of Nations
or persons, only individual faith. National Israel was the elect of God in the
Old Testament. The New Man Paul refers to, is the spiritual Israel which has no
partition between jews and gentiles after the flesh. They are both ONE NEW MAN IN
...Thus, the "Judaicization" of believers today via
the Hebrew roots cult, as well as the undue exaltation of national Israel, are
interlinked aspects of Antichrist's end time deceptions.
only reason Satan wants the nation of "Israel" obliterated, is because
that's where his Nemesis, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is returning to
destroy his Antichrist/Maitreya/False Prophet/Sananda Esua Immanuel aka Yeshua,
charade, and NOT because "Israel" the nation is God's
"chosen" one- as proven above, it's not!"
do not support the political system of Zionism. The Israeli's are doing
unjust things that I can only reconcile with Zionism, I'd appreciate your
inputs on this
I have read your responses to the question of supporting
Israel and I am working through it. At this stage I cannot with good a good
conscience support Israel.
Looking forward to your response.
thanks for the email. The article is just 'replacement
theology'. ie that the Church has replaced the nation of Israel and the
nation of Israel doesn't have any special place in the plan of God today or
in the future. In short, it is rubbish.... IMHO : )
It leads to a
'spiritualizing' of the scriptures where the promises of God given to
the nation of Israel are now taken by the church and made to mean something that
they were never intended to mean. Interestingly, these people never take the
curses for the church... we'll leave them with the nation of Israel!
the article below, even the initial title is misleading. The Bible has quite a
few covenants that God has made.
Some were conditional and some, like the Abrahamic covenant were unconditional.
Just quoting one scripture about the Abrahamic covenant below and saying it was
just for Abraham then is again misleading and wrong. The Abrahamic covenant
isn't just in one verse, it is in Genesis 12:1-3, 6-7; 13:14-17; 15;
17:1-14; 22:15-18 as the article above points out and it is specifically said to
not just to be for Abraham but unto his descendants. The terms used below like
'spiritual Israel' are not even Biblical. The Bible doesn't talk
about the church being 'spiritual Israel' It uses and keeps the terms
Israel and the Church quite separate and distinct. The verses quoted below like
Rom 2:28-29 and Romans 9:6 are LIMITING the the terms Jew and Israel to the
Jewish believer, not extending them to include Gentile believers.
these people don't see is that God has a plan for the church but this
doesn't negate Him fulfilling the promises that he has made for to the
nation of Israel either. He won't do this because of their goodness He tells
us in Ezekiel. But so that He can prove Himself true to His word! The nation of
Israel, after nearly 2000 years of being scattered amongst the nations, as God
said He would do in His word, is a miracle. I have written more about this here:
In terms of whether you support them, all I would say is you would do well to go
by what the Bible says and not just what you hear in the 6 o'clock news.
There is an irrational and demonic twisting of the thoughts of the world against
the nation of Israel. I'm not saying everything they do is right. But the
response of the world against them shows there is something spiritual behind it.
For example, in the last week there is was a conference on women's rights
held by the UN. Now women are getting raped, murdered, subjected to slavery and
abuse in many horrible nations. This UN panel condemned 1 nation and 1 nation
only. Guess who? It was Israel! That, to me, is absolutely disgusting and again
shows the incredible bias in these world organizations. Of course it is just as
God prophesied it to be where He said in the last days all nations will come
against the nation of Israel. But guess what? He also said HE WILL FIGHT FOR HER!
So no Lea... don't believe much so what the media gives you concerning
Israel. Is is just about always skewed against her. Believe God's word.
All the best.
