A Sincere Word From My Heart
Modern Jews And The Holy Land
By David J. Stewart | November 2012 | Updated May 2015
There's not a more heated debate and controversial subject today than the argument over who are God's Chosen People? Are all Jews today (including Christ-rejecting Jews) God's Chosen People, or are they comprised of only born-again Jews who have faith in Jesus as the Messiah?
I am only a man and don't claim perfection in my teachings. You must decide for yourself if what I am teaching is Biblical and historically accurate. That's why I try to document everything, so you can go research it yourself. I read the Bible and pray for God to teach me, and then I share with others what I am compelled by God's Holy Spirit to believe.
It doesn't matter what I think concerning Israel; but rather, what God says in His inspired Word concerning Israel. The matter of Israel is the most debated doctrine in churches today next to the true meaning of repentance. I realize that many people are influenced by my writings, and I don't take this matter lightly. I believe what I am teaching to be 100% true to the Scriptures!
Before I type another word, may I say, I LOVE JEWISH PEOPLE. And I love Arabs and all Gentiles equally. You're not right with God if you love Jews more than Arabs, or Arabs more than Jews. As God's children (that is, born again Christians) we are commanded to love everybody, and I do!
I heard a bigoted Caucasian man say that the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim. That's pure hatred. I get upset as a Christian when Jack Chick publishes a tract titled, “Love The Jewish People,” but then he portrays Arabs as mad-bombers in his religious literature. Why doesn't Jack Chick expose the Jewish Talmud, which teaches that Jesus was conceived as the bastard child of Mary being raped by a Roman soldier? I've never heard one Christian pastor preach against the Talmud except Pastor Texe Marrs, Pastor Steven Anderson and myself. The Talmud is Satanic!!!
As a preacher I am obligated to preach against all false teachings. My teachings online in recent years have stirred a hornet's nest, some in agreement and other enraged. This shows the intensity by which Zionists have pushed their unbiblical propaganda in support of the counterfeit state of Israel today. Fake Israel is awaiting their fake Christ, the Antichrist. True Israel will embrace the true Messiah, Jesus Christ, when He returns.
I would like to share my heartfelt opinion on this matter and then you can decide for yourself. Although the subject of the Jews is not an essential doctrine to salvation, it is nevertheless an important matter, because those who view present-day Israel as being of God completely fail to see the evils of the New World Order. Revelation 17:18 plainly identifies “THE GREAT WHORE” from Revelation 17:1 and 5 as the city of Jerusalem. This makes sense when you understand that the Illuminati reestablished Israel as a secular Democratic nation in May of 1948.
The “Illuminati” refer to a group of Lucifer-worshipping people who control the world through blackmail, war, bloodshed, trade agreements, political pressure, terrorism and money. The Bible says they “fornicate” with the kings (nation leaders) of the world (Revelation 17:2). This is the truth behind modern Israel.
Who is a Jew today? If a Jew marries an Italian, their children will be half Jewish and half Italian. What percentage of biological Jewish blood-line qualifies a person to be considered Jewish? What if a Jew marries an Italian and then their child marries a Chinese person? Theoretically the grandchild is only one-fourth Jewish. I'm just stating a point.
Zionism is a false doctrine. By “Zionism” I mean the political/religious teaching that Jews are superior to Gentiles, and that God is restoring the Jews presently to their homeland. Clearly, nothing can happen without God's blessing and permission. The Bible plainly teaches that Jesus would REGATHER Israel to her homeland when He comes to reign from Jerusalem. The Bible plainly teaches in Jeremiah 23:5-8 that the Jews will be regathered to their Promised Land when Christ reigns from the throne of David. This has not happened yet and won't until the Second Coming (after the 7 year Tribulation period).
As much as it may offend you, historical evidence shows that the Rothschilds (heads of the international banking cabal) and Masonic Khazarian Jews were behind the creation of modern Israel. Please read Satan: Prince Of This World (.pdf book) by prolific author, Commander William Guy Carr (1895-1959). World Wars I and II were started by the bankers, from which they became filthy rich. I think Alex Jones does the best job exposing all this in his fantastic video ENDGAME (a 2:19 hour documentary on the history of the New World Order). Please watch it again and again.
John Hagee is a Zionist paid-off false prophet who teaches that Jews don't even need to be born-again to get to Heaven, and also that Jesus is not their Messiah. John MacArthur also teaches this false Dual Covenant Theology. Acts 10:43 teaches that Old Testament Jews (and Jews today) were saved the exact same way that Gentiles are, that is, by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ! Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” It is a lie of Satan that Jews have their own private plan of salvation. Jesus said to Nicodemus (a Jew)... “Ye must be born again” (John 3:5).
I don't believe that Israel replaces the Church, not at all. But I also don't believe that Israel as God's chosen nation includes blaspheming, Christ-rejecting, Jews who are going to Hell in their unbelief. God's promises to the Jews were CONDITIONAL, that is, conditioned upon obedient faith (see Exodus 19:5 and Deuteronomy 28:15-68). God's gifts and callings to Abraham are without repentance (Romans 11:29). Many people misunderstand this Scripture. It refers to God not changing His mind. It doesn't mean that unbelieving Jews are included as heirs of the promises.
Many Christians misunderstand Romans 11:28, “As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.” This doesn't mean that God gives special preference to Christ-rejecting, wicked, blaspheming, physical Jews. John 3:16 teaches that God loves “the world,” but this doesn't mean everybody goes to Heaven. God's unconditional love sent Christ to the cross to pay for everyone's sins, but the choice to receive Christ as Savior is conditional upon each individual's faith. Likewise, God unconditionally promised Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to make a great nation of their seed, which will be entirely fulfilled when Christ returns in power and glory at the close of the 7-year Tribulation period; but the promise to be included in that great day is still conditional upon individual faith. No unsaved Jew will ever see the New Jerusalem.
Genesis 17:19, “And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.” The unlearned Bible student can easily misinterpret this Scripture to includes every Jew, but it does not. Romans 9:7-8, “Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”
God's promise in Genesis 12:1-3 to bless those who bless, and curse those who curse, only applied to Abraham (because he was a righteous man), and not to his descendants who rebelled against God. It is sinful to say that God expects Christians to support Christless Israel today, as they murder innocent Palestinians, provide a gay-Mecca for queers on vacation, outlaw soul-winning in Jerusalem and openly blaspheme Jesus Christ in the Judaic Talmud.
Romans 11:28 doesn't mean that God favors such people and so should we as believers (God forbid); but rather, that He will still keep His promise to Abraham to one day make of his seed a great nation. Israel is an enemy for the Gospel's sake, but beloved by God for the patriarch's sake. This doesn't mean that individual wicked biological Jews are given preferential privileges or treatment by God; but rather, that Israel is still the apple of God's eyes, that is, the nation of Israel, to whom pertain all the promises of God. Romans 9:4, “Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises.”
Again, God unconditionally loved the world enough to give His only begotten Son, but the promise of salvation only applies conditionally to them that believe the Gospel. Likewise, God unconditionally promised Abraham to make of his seed a great nation, but to be included in that promise is conditional upon each individual Jew's faith in the Gospel. And God has extended that invitation also to the Gentiles, to be grafted into the olive tree (Romans 11:23-24).
Only a REMNANT will be saved, that is, them that believe. Galatians 2:29, “And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Romans 9:27-29, “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. And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.” I do not find any passages of Scriptures where Jesus healed anyone just because they were physically Jewish. Instead, it was always their faith in Christ that made them whole.
Romans 2:11 teaches that God is NO RESPECTER of persons. Jews are no better than anyone else, nor does God love Jews more than Arabs. Israel had a special calling, a purpose from God, that is, to be God's ambassadors to the world. Israel rebelled and so God turned to the Gentiles to provoke Israel to jealousy. That's why many Jews absolutely hate Jesus today. Also, I agree with radio host Michael Savage (a Jew) that many people hate the Jews because God gave the world a conscience through Israel, that is, the Law. Israel is God's chosen nation. Isaiah 44:1, “Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen.”
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.
For anyone to teach that believers today ought to support and defend the Marxist-Communist nation of Israel and unbelieving Jews is very naive. Search the internet and you'll find quickly that Hollywood is predominantly Jewish. Hundreds of Hollywood actors have changed their real names to hide their Jewish identity. So if Christians are obligated Biblically to support a wicked, unbelieving, homosexualized, secular, state of Israel, then so must we also support Jewish Hollywood. What's the difference? In fact, percentage wise, Hollywood is more Jewish than Israel. Check and see! The violence in Hollywood is fake, but the violence in Israel is real. Israeli-controlled U.S. military forces murdered 1,455,590 Iraqis during the Iraqi War!!! Churches across America were brainwashed into believing that Iraq got what they deserved, when in reality Iraq had absolutely nothing to do with the 911 attacks. This shows the horrifying power of the Zionist-controlled American mainstream newsmedia. Most of the churches have been deceived!!!
We are now living in the Times Of The Gentiles. Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Yet, it is The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) who are trodding down the Gentiles through Israel, which is unbiblical. In other words, God is not a part of any of this wickedness, war and bloodshed. True Israel doesn't exist today as a nation. Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles! That's what Titus from Rome did in 70 AD. That's what Wall Street's Hitler did in World War II. I hear false preachers today saying that Israel will never be defeated again. My friend, two-thirds of the Jews in Israel will die during the Tribulation. The times of the Gentiles will not end until Christ returns.
144,000 Jews will be saved after the Rapture and will preach the gospel to the world. Many people will be saved. At the end of the Tribulation, Israel will be attacked by Russia, China and other nations. God will defend His chosen nation. Israel is the apple of God's eye (Zechariah 2:8), but this does NOT mean that Jews are loved by God over the Gentiles. Christ died for the world. There is only ONE plan of salvation, that is, the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ that He died, was buried and rose again.
Unsaved Jews today are NOT God's Chosen People. Saved Jews ARE, and so are saved Gentiles. Caleb was a Gentile, yet he was included as one of God's people. The determining factor was never biological; but rather, by association and faith in the Lord. The apostle Paul teaches in Galatians 3:28-29 that there is NEITHER JEW nor Greek in Christ...
Galatians 3:28-29, “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.”
Thus, it is idolatry to worship Israel, the Jews or the so-called “Holy Land” (a misnomer) today when the Bible plainly states as you've just read that Greeks and Jews are all ONE IN CHRIST.
The notion that biological Jews are special today and deserve preferential treatment presents many problems. One of the main issues is the fact that there are no pure ethnic Jews today. Through much intermarriage and interracial mixing, any pure Jewish lines have been diluted into the Gentile world . . .
The idea that the so called Israelite peoples are a distinct ethnic group differing radically from others seems to me to be flawed by the simple fact that there are virtually no ethnically pure groups on earth today. When Yair Davidiy claims [without any serious evidence] that "the Danes" are Israelite because of the verbal similarity with the tribe of "Dan", this implies that actually the "Danes" aren't ethnically Scandinavian but Semitic. That proposition is ridiculous. Further, the implication seems to be that whoever lives in Denmark is also a "Dane" and therefore also Semitic—because so many tribes moved around and came to live in Denmark over the past few millennia. But these theories presuppose that the original Jewish or Israelite tribes who supposedly moved to Denmark and Anglo-Saxon countries were themselves pure. A brief review of their history shows this is far from the case:
- Abraham, father of the Israelite peoples, was not an inhabitant of the land we now know as Israel. He was from far away, in modern day Iraq.
- Isaac and Jacob both took wives from tribes who were the forefathers of the Arabs. God reminds Israel of this later: "Your father was an Amorite, and your mother a Hittite" (Ez. 16:3,45)—as if to say 'Listen Israel, ethnically you're really no different from the surrounding Arabic tribes'. It is following the faith of Abraham which makes people his children, rather than fleshly descent (Rom. 4:12-16; Gal. 3:7-9). Hence Paul's comment: "They are not all Israel who are of Israel" (Rom. 9:6).
— Some of the children of Jacob were by his servant girls, who were also ethnically 'Arabic' rather than 'Israelite'
— Joseph married an Egyptian, Asenath-Ephraim and Manasseh his sons were half Egyptian.
— The community which left Egypt and journeyed to Canaan included a very large "mixed multitude" (Ex. 12:38, Heb. 'a mongrel people'). However there was no ethnic distinction made between them and the descendants of Jacob, neither in the Law of Moses nor in any social legislation. They were assimilated.
— Repeatedly, Biblical history laments how the children of Jacob intermarried with the local Canaanite tribes and surrounding nations.
— Solomon's mother was an Ammonites. Yet he was in the royal line. Other kings also had Gentile mothers.
— In captivity in Babylon, the Jews quickly assimilated, adopting paganic Babylonian names. Only a minority of them returned to the land under Ezra and Nehemiah, and even these were characterized by marriage with non-Jews, to the point that their children couldn't speak Hebrew (Ezra 10 etc.).
— Much research has been done to investigate why despite the small number who returned from Babylon, by the time of Christ a few centuries later, the population of Palestine had increased so many fold. It's apparent that there was large scale immigration into Palestine of various groups who assimilated with the Jews.
— Throughout the past 2000 years, the 'Jewish' people have continued to follow a pattern of assimilation and intermarriage, persecution, separation, acceptance, assimilation...
This brief summary shows that the Jewish people are far from ethnically pure—in fact they have experienced far more dilution of their ethnicity than most other races! What is clear is that being 'Jewish', being the children of faithful Abraham, is a matter of faith and spiritual culture rather than genetics or blood ethnicity. That's why modern Israel includes black Africans, Chinese, Filipinos, Americans, pale skinned, blonde, blue eyed Scandinavians... all wearing skull caps and claiming to be Jews. That simple fact shows that the Jews simply aren't ethnically pure, and to claim that all those nations of origin are somehow legitimately 'Israelite' is therefore a genetical and ethnological fallacy.
It follows from all this that God counts people as His Israel on bases other than genetic purity. At the time of the exile, the few Jews left in the land complained that because Abraham had possession of the land, therefore they too should have such possession (Ez. 33:23,24)—and God said that this was wrong reasoning. They did not follow the steps of their father Abraham, therefore they could not claim to be His seed. The New Testament comment that "they are not all Israel who are of Israel" (Rom. 9:6) was true in Old Testament times too. This theme of being counted as Israel without being genetically pure is witnessed many times in the genealogies of 1 Chron. 1-9.
The context of those records was perhaps to comfort the returned exiles who couldn't prove their ancestry- they were still "Israel" even if there had been inter-marriage in Babylon. And there are other examples of this kind of thing. Take Caleb as an example. He was a Gentile (Num. 32:13; Josh. 15:17; Jud. 1:13; Gen. 36:11); and yet in Num. 13:6; 34:19 his descendants are incorporated into the tribe of Judah. Or reflect upon Samuel, an Ephraimite (1 Sam. 1:1), counted as a Levite (1 Chron. 6:16-28). Indeed it would appear that 'genealogies' in the Bible very often reflect themes of associations rather than being literal accounts of blood descent.
The fact many Jewish rabbis assume Jewish genetic roots are pure doesn't mean that they are. An often quoted Rabbinic maxim is that "When the Holy One, blessed be He, causes His Shekinah to rest, it is only upon the families of pure birth in Israel"(1). Yet the Hebrew scriptures are clear enough that no Israelite is "of pure birth". Frequently the Mishnah and later Rabbinic writings have warned against marriage of Jews to non-Jews, lest ethnic and genetic purity be lost. Yet the fact is, Jews have already intermarried hopelessly. The Biblical warnings against marriage out of the faith are in order that the Jew would not go and serve other gods—there is no interest in preserving cultural or genetic purity. And our own position against Christians marrying unbelievers should be likewise motivated.

SOURCE: Are The Jewish People Ethnically Pure?
Having said that, I DON'T believe that the Church replaces Israel. When the Times Of The Gentiles are fulfilled, at the Rapture, then God will once again turn to the nation of Israel. The Jews will be purged during the Tribulation and prepared to receive their coming King, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Battle Of Armageddon will be fought in Palestine. The Beast and the False Prophet and all the wicked nations of the earth shall be defeated by the Spirit of the Lord. Christ will establish a literal reign from Jerusalem over the whole earth for 1,000 years.
Read what the Bible teaches concerning who is a true Jew...
Romans 2:28-29, “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 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 God.”
So neither national, cultural nor biological Jews are God's people UNLESS they are spiritually Abraham's seed, that is, a born-again Christian. That is the plain and simple teaching of the Scriptures. The false idea that Jews are superior to Gentiles is of the Devil. It is idolatry. Israel is the unholy land. They crucified their Messiah. Never call Israel the "holy land." The Bible calls Jerusalem Sodom and Egypt in Revelation 11:8.
Are today’s Jews really God’s chosen people? Not unless they are saved! In fact, not all of Abraham’s physical descendants were children of the Old Testament Abrahamic covenant. Nor were all of them children of the promise. God made his covenant with a person “Abraham” and not a nation, and it was by faith that he and his descendants were justified by God, not national origin (Genesis 15:6, Romans 4:3-22, Jas. 2:23).
Moreover, it was Isaac, his second-born, supernaturally selected by the Spirit, and not Ishmael who was born of the flesh by his bondservant Hagar, through whom God’s blessings would flow (Genesis 21:12).
Then through Isaac’s twin sons, by His sovereign right and election, God chose Jacob and rejected Esau to carry forth the Abrahamic seed promise of God. Covenants were always ratified by faith not by flesh. This is important to understand. Esau was a physical Jew, but he was not God's chosen people. God chose Jacob. Hence, the promise is by FAITH and not by BLOOD.
Four hundred years later God made a conditional covenant with Moses and the Jewish people. It was faith again and not physical lineage that would determine inclusion or exclusion for those “called” as “God’s Chosen People.”
Read the plain and simple teaching of the Scriptures...
Romans 4:13-14, “For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect...”
Clearly, unbelieving national, cultural and biological Jews are NOT HEIRS OF THE PROMISE!!! There are more Jews living in Brooklyn, New York than there are living in Israel today. Less than 2.5% of the citizens living in Israel today profess to be Christians.
If you REJECT Jesus Christ, then you are NOT Abrahams descendant. John the Baptist made that clear to the religious Jews...
Matthew 3:9, “And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.”
John was NOT impressed with their Jewish heritage. Being ethnic descendants of Abraham meant NOTHING in God’s sight. Millions have made an IDOL out of Israel and the Land of Palestine.
The Scofield Bible, J.N. Darby and many others had a GREAT influence in millions of lives. People are mystified by their FALSE teachings much today.
The Jewish apostle Paul was CONVERTED to FAITH in Jesus Christ. Paul makes it clear that spiritual regeneration is all that matters. It is pure IDOLATRY to worship any ETHNIC group, including Israel.
Galatians 6:14-16, “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.”
If you want to be part of God’s TRUE Israel, then YOU must be born again! That is what Jesus Christ declared in John 3:5-7.
He created ALL things (John 1:1-3). Do YOU believe Him?
John 3:6-7, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”
Your PHYSICAL birth will NOT get you into Heaven!
1st Corinthians 15:50, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”
