Is the modern day state of Israel created in 1948 ‘the Israel of God’? Simply answer, no it is not. It was created by the Rothchild banking system and the United Nations, not God. It is just that simple, God destroyed Biblical Israel in 70 A.D.
Am I saying that Israel is not a state or country, no I am not, it is recognized by the world as such, however that does not mean it is Biblical Israel. Does God love the Jews? Yes He does and He wants to see them repent and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The minute you question this you will be accused of being anti-semitic, however nothing could be further from the truth. I want to see the Jews saved and call upon Jesus. The destruction of Jerusalem happened in 70 A.D. in the same generation Jesus was crucified on the cross. Jesus rose from the dead and shortly after His new Church was born, the Holy Ghost was given on Pentecost, and you know the rest of the story detailed in the book of Acts. This was the ushering in of the New Covenant, what was old and no more had vanished away. Israel had a long past of rebellion against God and that is well documented in the Old Testament. God needed to do something new, because no one was capable of following the law and all would be lost. So He sent His Son to redeem mankind from their sins by offering Himself as a sacrifice for our sins. We are under a new covenant, please read Hebrews Ch 8, Jeremiah Ch 31, and the complete book of Romans.
In, 1 Thessalonians 2:15-16 Paul says this in reference to the Jews of that time ‘Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.’ Not sure what you understand as the meaning of ‘uttermost’, however there is no coming back from that. It was not a temporary judgement that God would later resend as He did in the past, it was done, finished.
Jesus even foretold His disciples about the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in Matthew Ch 24:1-2 ‘And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.’ That comment caught their attention so they asked more. Please read Chapters, Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21 you will find the complete accounts of this in there. They are not talking about the future here, at the time Jesus said it, yes it was in reference to the future but these passages have long been fullfed in 70 A.D. He is not talking about a future event that will happen in our time period, only in the sense that it would happen before His second coming. If you look through history you will find that all He said in those chapters was fulfilled in that time period, the false christ’s, the wars and rumors of war, earthquakes, famines, even the signs, etc. Please read the chapters. I cannot get into all the false teaching about this, it is way to vast to cover, I will simply tell you what they mean, and let you decide for yourself. You have to read about history to understand this and comprehend it, a good book to start is ‘The Destruction Of Jerusalem, Written in 1805, By George Peter Holford’. If you search it you will likely find a PDF copy of it. It will change the way you think about these chapters and you will not be fooled by these false teachings.
John 14:6 ‘Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ If anyone can explain the Words of Jesus and still define the modern day state of Israel as the ‘Israel of God’ mentioned in Galatians you will understand it takes a lot of twisting and false teachings to make that happen. Galatians 6:16 ‘And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.’
Who is Abraham seed? In Galatians Ch 3:16 ‘Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.’. It is not what you think or have been told is it? Jesus was the fulfillment of Abraham’s seed and all who trust in faith in Jesus are the son’s of Abraham. You are a son and daughter of God through the promised seed: thus, For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Please read Galatians the whole book, especially chapter 3, many times and than some, it is one of the most important chapters you need to understand. I will paste it below this post.
If you do not understand the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in 70 A.D. you cannot understand Bible prophecy, you will be all over the place. Once you do comprehend this, you than understand that anyone who claims the ‘State of Israel’ with regards to future prophecies is a ‘false teacher/doctrine’. This post is just a general overview to help you, it is not meant to be an deep dive, the rest is up to you. Seek the Truth and God bless, call upon Jesus to show you, ask the Holy Ghost to help you understand.
The hardest part about understanding this, will not be the reading of Bible, Prayer, or history. It will be unlearning of what you have already learned. That will take some time.
After reading and studying the passages I suggested in this post you will understand who, ‘The Israel of God’ is. You will also notice and learn that the State of Israel is not even mentioned in modern day prophecies in the Bible (they are all past).
I will also be doing more short post as this opens up a host of questions. However you must first figure this one out before anything else will make sense.
Galatians Chapter 3 KJV
3 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 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.
29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
