(WHY REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY IS A FALSE
1) God’s covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel)
is an everlasting covenant
that will never be cancelled.
“And 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
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
“He is 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).
5) God has not cast away Israel,
her blindness is temporary, and God will never change His mind about Israel’s
gifts and calling.
“I 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. 11:1-2b).
“For 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).
gifts (land, etc.) and calling
of God are without repentance [cannot be changed, taken
back or revoked]” (Rom. 11:29).
6) God clearly says the Jews will
be my people after the nation
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.
“After 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.
“Saying, 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).
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).
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).
