Devarim 14:2 – “…Adonai your God has chosen you…” – CJB (Deuteronomy 14:2)
Tehillim 135:4 – “…the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself,and Israel for his peculiar treasure.” – KJV (Psalm 135:4)
Amos 3:1-2 ** – “…You only have I known (chosen, sympathized with, and loved) of all the families of the earth; therefore I will visit upon you all your wickedness and punish…” – AMP
Yochanan 4:22 – “…because salvation comes from the Jews.” – CJB (John 4:22)
Note even in Amos 3, where it is vividly clear that God (Christ) is indeed very angry with the Jews and the nation of Israel, does He ever say – “you have ceased to be MY chosen people”. So what about the Jews in the 20th and 21st centuries, is there / are there sound biblical reasons to believe that God (Christ) is finished with them? Any reason(s) to conclude that God (Christ) no longer deems the Jew – “His Chosen”? How about dwelling where the Jews dwell today, in the ancient land of the Chosen people, promised to the Jews way back in Bereshis 12 (Genesis 12), do the modern day Jews have a right to dwell in their land?
Let’s deal with the first two (2) questions first, Is God (Christ) is finished with the Jews? And Are the Jews no longer “His Chosen”? Let us consider some common misconceptions, shall we. And begin by turning to the New Testament.
There you have it, right? Even Peter the Apostle very clearly stated, of Israel and the Jews, that they by their wicked hands crucified Jesus Christ / Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Rabbi bar Yosef). Or is it really just that simple? Throughout the past 2,000 years, wicked anti-Semitic men and women calling themselves ‘christian’ have used this passage, along with a few others, to call the Jews Christ-killers and to persecute the Jewish people. SHAME ON YOU!
The Apostles said: – “24 When they heard it, they raised their voices to God with singleness of heart. “Master,” they prayed, “You made heaven, earth, the sea and everything in them. 25 By the Ruach HaKodesh, through the mouth of our father David, your servant, you said,
So why then are so many ‘christians’ ready to dismiss Israel, worse condemn Israel even, as evil today?
Next, let’s address the third question from above - Do the modern day Jews have a right to dwell in Yisrael (Israel)?
Let’s consider again Kehillah in Rome 3:1 & 2, 3 & 4 (Romans 3:1 & 2, 3 & 4) – “…what advantage has the Jew? What is the value of being circumcised? 2 Much in every way! In the first place, the Jews were entrusted with the very words of God… …Does their faithlessness cancel God’s faithfulness? 4 Heaven forbid! God would be true even if everyone were a liar!..” – CJB
what advantage has the Jew MUCH IN EVERY WAY, did you get that? Much in every way! Who is Paul speaking of? The Jews!
And - DOES THEIR FAITHLESSNESS CANCEL GOD’S FAITHFULNESS? 4 HEAVEN FORBID! What’s that O’ spirit of Anti-Christ, Anti-God, Anti-Semitic ‘christian’ and your rants about ‘God being *done* with the Jews, because they broke ranks’? - Heaven forbid!
The one, the very same evil, spiteful, lying, hateful spirit behind Eve’s temptation is the one and the very same spirit behind all this Anti-Christ / Anti-Semitic “Replacement Theology” garbage. So what covenant might it be that Paul is speaking of, as being unbroken? Well as this piece was opened with - John 14:6 -, and as that is the central theme of Christianity that – there is NO Salvation, NONE, NOT for anyone, outside of one placing one’s life into the loving, caring, nurturing hands of Jesus Christ; and as this is a Blood covenant for Salvation made with Christ’s own Blood, well then it should seem obvious that this unbroken covenant is not about salvation or being saved. So what is it about then?
It would seem clear that this unbroken promise, is in fact about the people of Yisrael remaining God’s (Christ’s) chosen, and their promised right to dwell very land of Israel itself. Look up Romans 9:4 “…Israelites, to whom belongs …” - NASB or “…they are Israelites, and to them belong God’s …” AMP. It is interesting that Paul does not write, “belonged” (past tense), but that these promises & covenants belong (present tense) to… To whom? To Israel and the Jews. See also Romans 11:1 and 11:11, Paul here very clearly asks: “…I ask then, has God rejected and deserted his people the Jews? Oh no, not at all…” - Romans 11:1 – TLB, and “…So I ask, Have they stumbled so as to fall [to their utter spiritual ruin, irretrievably]? By no means!..” – AMP – Romans 11:11. According to Romans 11:29 “…the matnat Hashem and the kri’at Hashem are irrevocable.” OJB (“…the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” – KJV or “…God’s free gifts and his calling are irrevocable.” – CJB)
Consider this, oh yee “Replacement Theology” Anti-Semites, in Acts 1:6 the Disciples asked God (Christ) – “… “Lord, are you at this time going to restore self-rule to Isra’el?”…” – CJB, and Christ answered them by saying – “…It is not for you to become acquainted with and know what time brings [the things and events of time and their definite periods] or fixed years and seasons (their critical niche in time), which the Father has appointed (fixed and reserved) by His own choice and authority…” – AMP again, “…It Is Not For You To Become Acquainted With And Know … The Father Has Appointed (Fixed And Reserved) By His Own Choice And Authority…” Seems pretty clear that God (Christ) did not say, “nah, done with them!” No, He replied when asked about Christ setting up the new Kingdom and other promises of TaNaKh (the Old Testament), the Father’s *promises* STAND!
