February 12: God’s unique relationship with Israel

The second reason that was given to explain why God allowed the destruction of the Temple was “Replacement Theology.”  Replacement Theology believes that God has rejected the Jewish people and has taken away all His promises from Israel.  It also says that God has replaced Israel with the Church.The thinking is  that the Church is God’s chosen people, and gives to the church all the promises He took away from Israel.

Many of the early Church Fathers taught both Deicide and Replacement Theology.  Sadly, a growing number of churches are still teaching these lies. These lies do not tell the truth about  God’s character and His Word and they must be rejected and replaced  with the truth of God’s Word.

 

Jeremiah 31:35-37

The Lord speaks.

He makes the sun shine by day.

He orders the moon and stars
    to shine at night.
He stirs up the ocean.
    He makes its waves roar.
    His name is the Lord Who Rules Over All.
36 “Suppose my orders for creation disappear from my sight,”
    announces the Lord.
“Only then will the people of Israel stop being
    a nation in my sight.”

“Suppose the sky above could be measured.

 Suppose the foundations of the earth below could be completely discovered. Only then would I turn away from Israel.

Even though they have committed many sins,
    I will still accept them,”
    announces the Lord.
