GRAFTED IN, NOT A REPLACEMENT!!

A Dangerous PhilosophyReplacement Theology, or Amillennialism, or ‘Kingdom Now’ or ‘Dominion Theologies’

Basically these teach that God has replaced Israel (the Jews) as recipients of the promises, with the Church because of the majority of Jews’ not believing that Jesus Christ was their expected Messiah. That is why in many churches you never hear about the Rapture, the coming seven year Tribulation, the Antichrist, the coming Messianic Kingdom – the Millennium – the literal 1000 year reign of peace on earth with Messiah Jesus as King, the Old Testament prophecies about the return of the Jews to their own land, the end of the church age and the continuation of God’s ultimate plan for his original Chosen People Israel. Their underlying philosophy is that all the scriptures about Israel should replace the word ‘Israel’ with ‘the Church’.

But this is an allegorization or spiritualization of the hundreds of prophecies in the Old and New Testaments about the end times events! Scripture should be taken LITERALLY whenever it is reasonable to do so. Jesus took them literally! Please take a few moments to read Romans Chapter 11 in the Bible. It states clearly that we are not replacing Israel, but instead we who are gentiles from the ‘wild olive tree’ are ‘grafted in’  to the ‘cultivated olive tree’ Israel when we believe in Christ. God has blinded their eyes to Messiah for OUR SAKE, so that gentiles would have access to salvation. But this is temporary; the church age will end (70th week of years in Daniel) when all who are predestined to believe have been gathered in. At that time God will resume His plan and promises to the Jews!

There is too much information about this subject for a blog post but I recommend going online and looking up the terms listed above. There is much written about this subject. Many well known and reputable Christian teachers DO teach the true eschatology of the Bible, such as Billy Graham, Ann Graham Lotz, Charles Stanley, Chuck Pierce, Chuck Smith, David Jeremiah, Dick Eastman, Elwood McQuaid, Jack Hayford, Jack Van Impe, James & Shirley Dobson, Jay Sekulow (ACLJ), Jerry Falwell (late), Jimmy DeYoung, John Hagee, John Walvrood (late), Derek Prince (late), Joyce Meyer, Kay Arthur, Michael W. Smith, Myles Munroe, Pat Robertson, Paul Cedar, Perry Rockwood, Renald Showers, Ravi Zacharias, Sid Roth, T.D. Jakes, Tim LaHaye and many more. In fact, most Baptist and Assembly of God doctrines include the correct interpretation of end times scriptures.

The dangerous teachings of Replacement Theology, in denying God’s plan to restore His Chosen Jewish people, are promoting anti-semitism – a hatred of Jews. This has resulted over the centuries in countless atrocities against Jews in the ‘name of God’.

Not for their holiness or goodness, but for God’s own Name’s sake, the Jewish people will be Restored and Redeemed – NOT Replaced! Consider the re-establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, the current ingathering to Israel from the nations to which they were exiled, the rebirth of the Hebrew language, the flourishing of formerly barren wastelands. God’s covenants to Israel are irrevocable and eternal.  What else can explain the PERPETUITY of the Jewish people? “I the Lord do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed” (Malachi 3:6). There is simply no other ethnic group in the history of man that has faced such odds and yet survived to flourish again. God continues to be faithful to His Covenant people Israel, and He will also be faithful to those who have been grafted into the commonwealth of Israel by faith. History disproves Replacement Theology. Please do some investigation on your own – there are so many prophecies already fulfilled and being fulfilled today! Become a blesser of Israel and you will be blessed. Read the Word! Spread the word!

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee” (Psalms 122:6)

  1. Thank you, Elena, for sharing so much on this site. Reading all the names of those who do speak the truth brings to mind so many whom I have listened to and studied with and believe. In my Christian Library I have many of their books! You are helping me to have a better understanding of the Jewish community and I thank you for posting all you do!

  2. Thank you Elena for ALL you do for the Kingdom.
    We need this knowledge.
    It is important to God and important for us.
    May God richly bless you as you serve Him who is faithful.
    Praise God! We have been grafted in.

  3. Mt 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!

    Mt 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

    Mt 23:39 For I say unto you, you shall not see me again, till you shall say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

    It seems clear to me that God has future dealings with national and ethnic Israel.

    Ro 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in.

    Ro 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

    Ro 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

    Ro 11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but concerning the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.

    Ro 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are unchangeable.

    It seems clear to me that God has future dealings with national and ethnic Israel.
