1) God’s covenant with
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) is an
everlasting covenant that will never be cancelled.
I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in
their generations for an everlasting
covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And
I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a
stranger, all the land
of Canaan, for an
everlasting possession; and I
will be their God” (Gen. 17:7-8).
2) God delivered the Jews from Egypt because He loves them and He
will keep the covenant He made
with their ancestors.
“The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye
were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all
people: But because the LORD loved you,
and because he would keep the oath
which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a
mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of
Pharaoh king of Egypt” (Deut. 7:7-8).
3) God said
would disobey Him, but He said He will still
remember the covenant for the sake of Abraham, Isaac and
“And yet for all that [Israel’s
disobedience], when they be in the land of their enemies,
I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to
destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the
LORD their God. But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their
ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the
heathen, that I might be their God: I am the LORD” (Lev. 26:44-45).
4) God’s covenant with
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob extends to all the earth and He is a faithful God who will never forget
that the Land of Canaan is Israel’s
the LORD our God: his judgments are in
all the earth.
He hath remembered his
covenant for ever, the word which
he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant
he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and
to Israel for an
Saying, Unto thee will I give the
of Canaan, the lot of your
inheritance” (Psalm 105:7-11).
has not cast away Israel, her blindness is temporary, and
God will never change His mind about Israel’s gifts and calling.
say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite,
of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God
hath not cast away his people which he foreknew” (Rom.
I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye
should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to
Israel, UNTIL the fulness of the Gentiles be come in” (Rom. 11:25).
the gifts (land, etc.) and
calling of God are without
repentance [they cannot be changed, taken back or
revoked]” (Rom. 11:29).
6) God clearly says the Jews will be
my people after the nation is re-established.
In the Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones which is widely recognized
as a prophecy about the restoration of Israel at the end-of-the-age, God said,
“Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say,
Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore
prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O
my people, I will open your
graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and
bring you into the land of Israel. And
ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O
my people, and brought you up
out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye
shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that
I the LORD have spoken it,
and performed it, saith the LORD” (Ezek. 37:11-14).
7) God clearly says the Jews will be
my people in the latter days and latter years.
many days thou shalt be visited: in
the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought
back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the
mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out
of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them” (Ezek. 38:8).
“And thou shalt come up
against my people of Israel,
as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in
the latter days, and I will
bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be
sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes” (Ezek. 38:16).
8) God clearly says some of the Jews will be
servants of our God during the Tribulation Period.
Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the
servants of our God in their foreheads. And I
heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an
hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the
children of Israel. Of
the tribe of Judah were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve
thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of
the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve
thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were
sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve
thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the
tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand” (Rev. 7:3-8).
9) God clearly said the Jews are enemies of the Gospel for the sake
of the Church, but He also clearly said all Israel
will be saved because He will remove their ungodliness and remove their
sins in response to the covenant
with the Jews and His love for them as descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
This will happen at the Second Coming of Jesus (Zech. 11, 12, 13).
so all Israel
shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the
Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For
this is my covenant
unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the
gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they
are beloved for the fathers’ sakes” (Rom. 11:26-28).
10) God clearly said the Jews will be
my people when the Battle of Armageddon takes place at the
Second Coming at the end of the Tribulation Period.
“I will also gather all nations, and will bring
them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for
my people and for my heritage
Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land”
In conclusion, from the above Scriptures and many more like them,
we therefore understand that God is not through with
Israel, and the teaching that the Church has permanently
replaced Israel as God’s
people is a false doctrine. The New Covenant has as much to do with Israel (Jer.
31:31-37; Heb. 8:8) as it does the Church (Matt. 26:28).
