Replacement Theology Is A False Doctrine

By David J. Stewart | November 2012

Genesis 12:3, “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

“Replacement Theology” is the false teaching that Old Testament Israel was cut-off because of unbelief and replaced by the Church instead in New Testament era. Although it is 100% true that God cut-off Israel because of unbelief (Romans 11:20, “because of unbelief they were broken off”), God never completely forsook His chosen people. Israel is Israel and the Church is the Church. We are now living in the Times Of The Gentiles (Luke 21:24), which will end at the Rapture.

Then following the Rapture, God will once again deal with Israel during the 7 year Tribulation period. But for now, both Jew and Gentile are God's People ONLY by faith in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. All others are going to Hell forever. No unsaved Jew today can claim to be God's Chosen People. If you believe otherwise, then you need to start studying the Bible for yourself and stop listening to lying Zionist heretics like John Hagee. Here's what I believe.

Although God chose Israel out of all the nations (Amos 3:2) to be a people of Himself, a witness to the nations, the conduit for His revelation, and through whom the Messiah would come, the whole nation of Israel never was “God’s Chosen People.” It was only the faithful remnant (Romans 9:27; 11:5; Isaiah 10:20-22) of that time. That’s why today neither the modern-day nation of Israel, nor all the ethnic Jews worldwide comprise of “God’s Chosen People.”

Who counts as the true Israel (i.e., the children of the promise) was never determined by a blood-line nor a race-line, but by a faith-line (Galatians 3:6-9). In Old Covenant times, only the righteous remnant of Israel were considered “God’s Chosen People” and the true Israel of God. Today, Abraham’s real descendants (“seed”) are believers in Jesus Christ whether they are racially Jews or Gentiles. It’s a level playing field, the ultimate in fulfilled bible prophecy—one common denominator, one road to redemption for all mankind . . . Jesus Christ.

I have been praying and studying much, asking God to teach me the truth concerning the Jews today. I have read many websites that refute Replacement Theology, but none of them provide much detail. They're all just blindly pro-Israel.

The key to understanding Israel today is the Biblical teaching that only SOME OF THE BRANCHES were broken off. Not all of Israel was cut-off. The Bible teaches that SOME of the branches were broken off because of unbelief...

Romans 11:17, “And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree.”

There has always been a remnant, just as there still is today. The remnant are the saved (Christian) Jews, true Israel...

Romans 9:27-28,“Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.”

Paul makes clear that he himself was part of the remnant of believing Jews (Romans 11:1). The Bible likens Israel to the time of Elijah in Romans 11:2-4, when Elijah cried out to God, saying that he was the only righteous man left. God told Elijah that he had a remnant of 7,000 righteous men (no doubt that meant there were also about 14,000 women in addition). The Bible teaches that there was a remnant in Paul's time, and you can rest assure that there is also a remnant in 2012, but this remnant today now also includes Gentiles as well as Jews who are born-again in Christ Jesus. Romans 11:5, “Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.” Amen. The election of grace is salvation by grace through faith plus or minus nothing. There is a group of born-again Jews and Gentiles in the world today who are God's chosen people.

Please understand that there are true Jews, and then there are false Jews (Communists, Freemasons, Marxists and Zionists). The apostle Paul says in Romans 9:6, “Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel.” Clearly, there were false Jews in New Testament times, just as their are false Jews today. Again we read in Revelation 2:9, “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”

Who can deny that some Jews are liars and are not truly God's chosen. Some are, but some AREN'T! It's important for every Christian to understand this truth!!! This is why most people are utterly confused today concerning Israel and the Jews. Most people fail to understand that there are two different, separate, groups of Jews. There are the non-believing Communist, Freemasonry, Marxist, Zionist Jews (all synonymous and supportive of each other) and then there are the believing, true, remnant scattered around the world today. It is the unbelieving Communist Jews (Zionists) who control the nation of Israel today. Please understand that there are no promises that any saved Jew today can claim that a saved Gentile cannot ALSO claim. God is no respecter of persons (Romans 2:11) and is rich unto all who call upon Jesus Christ by faith (Romans 10:12).

I think one of the best explanations is by Pastor Ted Pike of the National Prayer Network (please note that I DO NOT agree with all of Ted Pike's teachings). Also, here's an excellent online video by Pastor Ted Pike exposing the Communist, Federal Reserve, Zionist, Jews. Pastor Pike does NOT deny that there is a remnant of Jews who are God's people today.

In sharp contrast, false prophet John Hagee glamorizes atheist, Communist, Marxist, unbelieving, Zionist Jews as being true Israel. Televangelist John Hagee is so corrupt that he even teaches that Jews don't need to be born-again to get to Heaven. Hagee is the author of at least 10 books, including his latest reprobate book titled, IN DEFENSE OF ISRAEL, in which he boldly claims that the Jews never rejected their Messiah because Jesus never claimed to be the Messiah. John Hagee is just plain wrong and a liar who needs to get saved himself before it's too late. John Hagee is ignorant of the Scriptures, for Jesus plainly claimed to be the Messiah in John 4:25-26, “The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.” Jesus is the Messiah!!! By the way, Pastor John Hagee lives in a 5,275 square foot Greek revival mansion on a $2.1 million dollar 8,000 acre ranch. Clearly, Hagee has been paid off by Zionist Jews!!!

Jews are no better than anyone else. In fact, the Bible condemns being a respecter of persons. James 2:9, “But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.”

Do you ever wonder why Zionists hate so much? It is because of a massive guilt complex they have because they crucified their Messiah. They know they are under judgment, and they are mad. The Bible teaches that God turned to the Gentiles to make the Jews JEALOUS (Romans 10:19; 11:11), and they certainly are, to the point of killing Gentiles! They cried regarding the murder of Jesus Christ in Matthew 27:25, “His blood be on us, and on our children,” and thus it is. Someone must take the brunt of Zionist rage, and the Arabs are simply handy and worthy by reason of proximity. Sadly, many prejudiced Christians like Jack Chick rally and cheer for Israel, while demonizing the Arabs. James 2:9 says it is a sin to have respect of persons. We ought to love both Jews and Arabs equally.

Why Did God Choose Abraham?

As seen in our text verse above, God promised to bless the nation's of the earth through Abraham. Israel is that great nation. We learn the reason why God chose Abraham in Genesis 22:17, that is, because Abraham OBEYED God...

Genesis 22:17, “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies. And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”

Carefully notice that God didn't promise to bless Abraham's descendants merely because they were biologically related to him. But rather, God promised to bless those who bless ABRAHAM, and to curse those who curse ABRAHAM. God never blesses wickedness. We confirm this truth in the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy...

Deuteronomy 28:15, “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.”

Deuteronomy 28:15-68 mentions numerous CURSES which would come upon the Jews who disobeyed God. In fact, the Jews did disobey God, repeatedly, and all these curses did come upon God's people. God finally cut off Israel in 586 BC, giving the Jews into the hands of the Babylonians.

Wicked Hollywood (the movie empire) is owned by the Jews. This is public knowledge, but carefully suppressed for obvious reasons (i.e., the world doesn't like Jews). The Jews are hated for numerous reasons. One reason is because many are extremely arrogant. A second reason is because many are extremely wealthy and control government and the newsmedia. A third reason is because God gave the world His Law through the Jews, that is, God gave the world a guilty conscience (the Bible) through the Jews. And fourthly, and most of all, because the Jews are God's chosen people. So Hollywood hides the names of hundreds of Jewish actors by giving them Gentile names. Search the internet for a list of names.

It is very important that Christians are made aware that elite wealthy Jews have infiltrated America's churches through Freemasonry. Research Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Science, Oral Roberts, Southern Baptists, Seventh-Day Adventists, Roman Catholics and other mainstream religious groups and you'll find they've all been infiltrated (if not founded altogether) by Freemasons. Hundreds-of-thousands of Southern Baptists are Freemasons, which explains why so much heresy and apostasy has overtaken the convention. No Christian should join anything which involves Freemasonry, a demonic cult whose purpose is world government (the Beast system of the Antichrist).

Did you know that real Jews lived at peace with their Arab neighbors for 300 years before 1948. Zionist Jews not only hate the Arabs and Gentiles, but also true Jews.

The Gifts And Callings Of God Are Without Repentance

Many believers today have been woefully deceived because of a misunderstanding of Romans 11:29, which says that “the gifts and callings of God are without repentance.” Many people falsely think that this verse means all Jews are God's people, even if they reject Christ and refuse to get saved. Tony Garland, Joseph Farrah, Jerry Falwell, Sean Hannity, John Hagee and many others teach or support Zionism. The truth is that Romans 11:29 refers to God and not man. It is God Who has never repented (changed His mind) about the promises that He made to Abraham and his seed. The word repentance has nothing to do with man. This is the biggest mistake that Bible students make, that is, wrongfully interpreting this Scripture verse.

Again, the apostle Paul says in Romans 9:6, “Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel.” Clearly, there were false Jews in New Testament times, just as their are false Jews today. Again we read in Revelation 2:9, “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” Who can deny that some Jews are liars and are not truly God's chosen. Some are, but some AREN'T! It's important for every Christian to understand this truth, which is why I am mentioning it twice!!!

The very idea is insane that Christ-rejecting, blaspheming, hateful Zionist Jews (most of whom are Communists, Marxists, Atheists and Freemasons) are God's chosen people. THEY ARE NOT!!! Zionist Jews teach that a Roman Soldier raped Mary in the Talmud, and that's how Jesus was born (as a bastard child). The Jewish Talmud teaches that Jesus is boiling in urine and excrement forever. This is the holy book of Judaism. These are the Jews who foolish Believers have been duped to believe are God's chosen people. May I remind you again that the Bible says, “FOR THEY ARE NOT ALL ISRAEL, WHICH ARE OF ISRAEL.” You cannot show me one single verse in the Bible which says that all biological Jews are God's chosen people. In sharp contrast, the Bible does say in Romans...

Romans 11:28-32, “As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.”

The Word of God teaches that the Jews are God's people by His sovereign will, and that this calling is without repentance. The word “repentance” here refers to GOD and not to MAN. This is important to understand. The Bible is NOT saying that God chose all Jews, including Christ-rejecting and wicked Jews, even without them repenting to believe the Gospel. This is the false doctrine which many people think from ignorance of the Scriptures. What the verse truly means is that God has never changed His mind concerning His promises to make of Abraham a great nation, and to bless the nations of the earth through Abraham's seed. These prophecies have, and are still, being fulfilled today.

God will also keep His promises to defend the nation of Israel during the Tribulation, and to regather Israel at the Second Coming of Christ to the earth. But the believing Gentiles are now also included. Jesus will literally reign upon the throne of David. Jews and Gentiles alike who are saved are ALL ONE IN CHRIST (Galatians 3:28).

Here are some helpful words from Dr. Harry Ironside, from his sermon titled, “Not Wrath, But Rapture” ...

A careful consideration of many scriptures, particularly in the Old Testament prophets, would how us that when the Lord thus returns, He will smite apostate Israel and the rebellious gentile world with judgment. They will be destroyed at His presence. On the other hand, a remnant of Israel will not only be spared from judgment, but will welcome Him as their long-looked-for King and Messiah. A great multitude of gentiles will be saved from the wrath that will fall on the worshippers of the beast and will form the nucleus of our Lord's kingdom on this earth for a thousand years. This is the predicted program for the coming of the Son of man.

The following eye-opening Bible commentary is by William Kelly...

Hence the apostle goes on to affirm what is wholly different from the gospel and church state. "According to the gospel, [they are] enemies on your account; but according to the election, beloved on account of the fathers.* For the gifts and the calling of God [are] irrevocable." (Ver. 28, 29.) The meaning is that, after the Jews proved their hostility to the gospel instead of being saved by it, which God turns, as we have seen, to His gracious call of the Gentiles meanwhile, election love will still prove faithful in the latter day to the sons for the sake of the fathers. This is not the principle on which souls are blessed now whether from Gentiles or from Jews. There is no difference. All are alike guilty and lost through their sins; all alike forgiven and saved through faith. But after the actual unbelief of the Jews, sovereign mercy will interpose at the end of the age. For the gifts and the calling of God admit of no regret on His part. He may repent of creation (Gen. 6), never of what grace gave in promise to Abraham and to his seed, never of His call which was first illustrated publicly in the father of the faithful. According to that "election" He will yet break their stony heart and put a new spirit within them.

SOURCE: Romans 8 - 16 - by William Kelly

Again, because this is such an important topic of discussion, here is further helpful commentary by Albert Barnes...

Romans 11:28-29, “As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”

Verse 28. As concerning the Gospel. So far as the gospel is concerned; or, in order to promote its extension and spread through the earth.

They are enemies. The word enemies here stands opposed to "beloved;" and as in one respect, to wit, on account of" election," they were still beloved, i.e. beloved by God; so in another respect they were his enemies, i.e. opposed to him, or cast off from him. The enemies of God denote all who are not his true friends, Colossians 1:21; Romans 5:10, comp. Romans 11:8. The word here is applied to the Jews because they had rejected the Messiah; had become opposed to God; and were therefore rejected by him.

For your sakes. For your advantage. Their rejection has become the occasion by which the gospel has been preached to you. Comp. Romans 11:11,19,20.

As touching the election. So far as the purpose of election is concerned. That is, the election of their fathers and of the nation to be the peculiar people of God.

They are beloved. God still regards them with interest; has purposes of mercy towards them; intends still to do them good. This does not mean that he approved of their conduct or character, or that he had for them the same kind of affection which he would have had if they had been obedient. God does not love a sinful character; but he may have still purposes of mercy, and regard men with deep interest on whom he intends yet to bestow mercy.

For the fathers' sakes. Comp. Deuteronomy 10:15. He had chosen their fathers to be his peculiar people. He had made many promises to Abraham respecting his seed, and extended these promises to his remotest posterity. Though salvation is by grace, and not from human merit, yet God has respect to his covenant made with the fathers, and will not forget his promises. It is not on account of any merit of the fathers or of ancient saints, but solely because God had made a covenant with them; and this purpose of election would be manifest to their children in the latest times. As those contemplated in the covenant made with Abraham, God retained for them feelings of peculiar interest; and designed their recovery to himself. It is clear here that the word election does not refer to external privileges; for Paul is not teaching the doctrine that they shall be restored to the external privileges of Jews, but that they shall be truly converted to God. Yet this should not be abused by others to lead them to security in sin. No man has any security of happiness, and of the favour of God, but he who complies with the terms of his mercy. His commands are explicit to repent and believe, nor can there be safety except in entire compliance with the terms on which he is willing to bestow eternal life.

{b} "for the father's sakes" Deuteronomy 10:15

Verse 29. For the gifts. The favours or benefits which God bestows on men. The word (\~carisma\~) properly denotes any benefit which is conferred on another as a mere matter of favour, and not of reward. See Romans 5:15,10; 6:23. Such are all the favours which God bestows on sinners, including pardon, peace, joy, sanctification, and eternal life.

And calling of God. The word calling (\~klhsiv\~) here denotes that act of God by which he extends an invitation to men to come and partake of his favours, whether it be by a personal revelation as to the patriarchs, Or by the promises of the gospel, or by the influences of his Spirit. All such invitations or callings imply a pledge that he will bestow the favour, and will not repent, or turn from it. God never draws or invites sinners to himself without being willing to bestow pardon and eternal life. The word calling here, therefore, has not respect to external privileges, but to that choosing of a sinner, and influencing him to come to God, which is connected with eternal life.

Without repentance. This does not refer to man, but to God. It does not mean that God confers his favours on man without his exercising repentance, but that God does not repent, or change, in his purposes of bestowing his gifts on man. What he promises he will fulfil; what he purposes to do, he will not change from or repent of. As he made promises to the fathers, he will not repent of them, and will not depart from them; they shall all be fulfilled; and thus it was certain that the ancient people of God, though many of them had become rebellious, and had been cast off, should not be forgotten and abandoned. This is a general proposition respecting God, and one repeatedly made of him in the Scriptures. See Numbers 23:19, "God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he not said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?" Ezekiel 24:14; 1 Samuel 15:29; Psalms 89:35,36; Titus 1:2; Hebrews 6:18; James 1:17. It follows from this,

(1.) that all the promises made to the people of God shall be fulfilled.

(2.) That his people need not be discouraged or desponding in times of persecution and trial.

(3.) That none who become his true friends will be forsaken, or cast off. God does not bestow the gift of repentance and faith, of pardon and peace, on men, for a temporary purpose; nor does he capriciously withdraw them, and leave the soul to ruin. When he renews a soul, it is with reference to his own glory; and to withdraw those favours, and leave such a soul once renewed to go down to hell, would be as much a violation of all the principles of his nature as it would be to all the promises of the Scripture.

(4.) For God to forsake such a soul, and leave it to ruin, would imply that he did repent. It would suppose a change of purpose and of feeling. It would be the character of a capricious being, with no settled plan or principles of action; no confidence could be reposed in him, and his government would be unworthy the affections and trust of his intelligent creation.

Thus, even unsaved Jews are still God's people, BUT they have clearly been cut off by God for their unbelief...

Romans 11:20, “Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear.”

The Bible teaches the Gentiles not to become arrogant.

Romans 11:22, “Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?”

The great lesson of this passage is certainly that just as the Jews of the Old Testament became proud (assuming that they alone knew God), so also could the same thing happen to Gentiles in the New Testament era. There is a danger of either looking down on the Jews, or looking up to the Jews. Both are sinful, for God is no respecter of persons (Romans 2:11). Zionist Jews (who are all Freemasons) have infiltrated the churches, teaching people (even naive believers) that God wants them to look up to the Jews and financially support them. Nothing could be further from the truth.

If it had not been for the grace of God, Gentiles would never have been grafted into the life of God (salvation) which the Jews enjoyed. The new life which enables Gentiles to produce fruit, grows from the same root that the old stock of Israel grows. Thus, Gentiles should have a humble attitude, not toward the Jews, but toward God who saves men by His love, mercy and grace through faith in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Neither Jews nor Gentiles can claim stake to God. Romans 10:12, “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.”

The Mystery Of “The Fulness Of The Gentiles”

The Bible speaks of “the fulness of the Gentiles,” which was a mystery to Old Testament saints, now being revealed in the New Testament...

Romans 11:25, “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.”

God doesn't want us to remain ignorant concerning this matter of the Jews and the Gentiles, lest we as Gentiles should look down upon the Jews for the calamity that has come upon them. Lest we should become high-minded that God has turned to us Gentiles with the Gospel...

Romans 11:18-20, “Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear.”

The natural branches are the Jews of Israel. The following excellent Bible commentary by Albert Barnes explains what is meant by the fall of Israel and the salvation of the Gentiles...

Romans 11:11, “I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.”

But rather through their fall. By means of their fall. The word fall here refers to all their conduct and doom at the coming of the Messiah, and in the breaking up of their establishment as a nation. Their rejection of the Messiah; the destruction of their city and temple; the ceasing of their ceremonial rites; and the rejection and dispersion of their nation by the Romans, all enter into the meaning of the word fall here, and were all the occasion of introducing salvation to the Gentiles.

Salvation. The Christian religion, with all its saving benefits. It does not mean that all the Gentiles were to be saved, but that the way was open; they might have access to God, and obtain his favour through the Messiah.

The Gentiles. All the world that were not Jews. The rejection and fall of the Jews contributed to the introduction of the Gentiles in the following manner:

(1.) It broke down the barrier which had long subsisted between them.

(2.) It made it consistent and proper, as they had rejected the Messiah, to send the knowledge of him to others.

(3.) It was connected with the destruction of the temple: and the rites of the Mosaic law; and taught them, and all others, that the worship of God was not to be confined to any single place.

(4.) The calamities that came upon the Jewish nation scattered the inhabitants of Judea, and with the Jews also those who had become Christians, and thus the gospel was carried to other lands.

(5.) These calamities, and the conduct of the Jews, and the close of the Jewish economy, were the means of giving to apostles, and other Christians, right views of the true design of the Mosaic institutions. If the temple had remained; if the nation had continued to flourish, it would have been long before they would have been effectually detached from those rites. Experience showed, even as it was, that they were slow in learning that the Jewish ceremonies were to cease. Some of the most agitating questions in the early church pertained to this; and if the temple had not been destroyed, the contest would have been much longer and more difficult.

SOURCE: Romans - Chapter 11 - Barnes' Notes on the New Testament on

God warns the Gentiles that they may be next along with the Jews in judgment, so be humble in the matter. If God speared not Israel (His people), then He won't spare the Gentiles either.

The Jews were cut-off by God for their unbelief. God turned to the Gentiles instead with the gospel. All of the promises made to the Jews are now offered to the Gentiles too. God did this to provoke the Jews to jealousy, which is why Jews vehemently hate Jesus Christ. We read in Romans...

Romans 11:11, “I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.”

The Jews wanted to live in gross immorality and still have God's blessings. God refused and cut-off Israel for her continued rebellion and sin of unbelief. So God turned to the Gentiles instead, and now Christ-rejecting Jews are jealous.

Paul says the Jewish nation has not availed themselves of the righteousness of God. Because they are so determined to establish their own righteousness, they cannot accept the righteousness that comes by faith in Christ. That is their problem still today. Judaism strongly rejects Jesus as the Messiah.

So the mystery is no longer a mystery. The Jews are still God's people, but they have been cut-off because of unbelief. The Jews dropped the ball. So the Gentiles have the ball now and will until the pretribulation Rapture. Immediately after the Rapture, a remnant of Jews will repent and believe the Gospel.

And So All Israel Shall Be Saved

When the Bible says that ALL ISRAEL shall be saved in Romans 11:26-27, it refers to a remnant...

Romans 11:26-27, And 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.”

The mighty Bible scholar, J. Vernon McGee (1904-1988) comments concerning Romans 11:26-27...

When Paul says “all Israel shall be saved,” he does not mean every individual Israelite will be saved. It is the nation he has before us in this chapter. In every age, only a remnant is saved. The quotation Paul uses is from Isaiah 59:20 in the Old Testament: “And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.” The message to the individual is that he or she will have to “turn from transgression” to the Lord. There will be a remnant that will turn to him. All of them will be saved. He speaks of the saved remnant as the nation Israel.

SOURCE: THRU-THE-BIBLE, by J. Vernon McGee; Vol. IV, Pg. 725 (1983)

All of the promises made to Israel in the Old Testament apply to the REMNANT of born-again Jews. To teach otherwise is to claim that God has a special plan of salvation just for the Jews, which is NOT the truth. There has always and only will be, one plan of salvation. Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” Acts 10:43 plainly teaches that people in the Old Testament were saved the same way as New Testament saints, which is, by grace through faith plus or minus nothing. Salvation is only found in the precious name of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:10-12).

All of the Old Testament promises of enjoying the Promised Land DO NOT apply to unsaved Jews. If we look at Biblical principles and NO MORE, then we can only come to the conclusion that no unsaved person who dies in their sins will ever enjoy the blessings of God. To teach otherwise is to claim that there are two plans of salvation, one for Jews and another for Gentiles. John Hagee foolishly teaches that garbage. Jesus told Nicodemus (a Jewish ruler) that except a man is born again he cannot enter into the kingdom of God (John 3:5-7). Clearly all people must be born anew by the Spirit of God to be a part of the kingdom of God.

The true remnant of Jews today are scattered around the world. They will be caught up and removed from the world at the Rapture. However, a large group of unbelieving Jews will repent and turn to the Lord to be saved following the Rapture. The Times Of The Gentiles will have been fulfilled and God will once again deal directly with Israel (the new remnant of Jews saved during the Tribulation).

God won't defend a Godless nation today, nor did He in the Old Testament. One of the purposes of the Tribulation will be to purge Israel to prepare to meet her King, Who will reign from the throne of David in Jerusalem during the Millennium.

Jews And Gentiles Alike Have Been Grafted Into The Tree

Only believing Jews are the remnant. Believing Gentiles are new to the tree, but are and not part of the remnant. Believing Gentiles have been grafted into the tree...

Romans 11:19-23, “Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.”

Only those Jews who abide not in unbelief will be grafted back into the branches. Otherwise Romans 11:23 says they are forever cut-off from the blessings and goodness of God. No unsaved Jew will ever enter into the Promised Land. You must be born-again by faith in the Messiah. Christ died, was buried and resurrected for our sins. This is the gospel (good news) according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. If we receive the gospel as payment for our sins, then we are saved. This applies to Jews and Gentiles alike.

Ro:11:5: Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
Ro:11:6: And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Conclusion Of The Matter

God's chosen people are only those Jews who have believed the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. This promise has also been extended to all Gentiles who believe as well. There is a remnant of physical Jews who are saved and are God's chosen people. They are the natural branches who've been grafted back into the tree. And every Gentile who believes is also grafted into the tree of God's family. There's no difference between the saved Jew or the saved Gentile, for all are equal and one in Jesus Christ. It is idolatry to worship the Jews, Israel or the so-called "Holy Land." The Bible in Revelation 11:8 calls Jerusalem Sodom and Egypt, both wicked places. Tel Aviv, Israel is the number one homosexual tourist destination in the world today in 2012. Go check it out on the internet for yourself. Holy Land? I think not!

All Gentiles (pictured by the wild olive tree in Romans 11:17,24) who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ have been grafted into the tree. So BOTH believing Jews and Gentiles have been grafted into the tree.

Those false prophets and Zionists today who claim that wicked, unbelieving, blaspheming Jews are God's chosen people, are totally ignoring the Scriptures. Again, Paul plainly stated in Romans 9:6, “FOR THEY ARE NOT ALL ISRAEL, WHO ARE OF ISRAEL.” To say that all Jews, believing and unbelieving alike, are God's chosen people completely goes against the plain teaching of Romans 9:6. In closing, we learn in Galatians 3:26-29 a fascinating truth...

Galatians 3:26-29, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Did you read that? The Bible says that IF YE BE CHRIST'S, THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM'S SEED, AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE. So what about Christ-rejecting, filthy Hollywood movie producing, Zionist Jews, who blaspheme the name of Jesus in all that they do? They are certainly NOT in Christ, for they deny that Jesus is even the Messiah! Clearly, Galatians 3:26-29 states that they are NOT Abraham's spiritual seed, nor are they heirs of the promises of God made to the Jews in the Bible. The Bible is very plain on this subject that only born-again Jews (and Gentiles) are heirs according to promise. And if you now understand that Romans 11:29 (concerning the gifts and callings of God being without repentance) refers to God and not man, then you ought to be fully convinced in this matter as I am as a Christian.

One final note on how awesome and fair God is toward all men...

Romans 11:22-23, “Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.”

Isn't that precious? God sends out the invitation to all unbelieving Jews that He will gladly take them back, forgiving their sins and grafting them right back into the tree if they'll simply repent of their unbelief in Christ Jesus the Messiah. Even if you're the meanest, most blasphemous, hateful Zionist Jew on the planet, the Lord will forgive and pardon all your iniquities if you'll simply believe on the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus DIED, was BURIED and RESURRECTED three days later.

Push away your pride my friend, and come to Jesus as your Savior and He will abundantly pardon. God wants unbelieving Jews to be saved, which is why He has deliberately provoked them to jealousy. God wants all men to repent the Bible says in 2nd Peter 3:9 and to be saved. The choice is yours alone to make!
