WHAT ABOUT NATURAL ISRAEL
IN OUR FUTURE?



The Jews are indeed a loved people by believers due to the Lord's fleshly heritage as a man. It is precious that the Lord came through them to be in the earthy through incarnation. God used that nation and kept them from idolatry as an incubator to later come through them and give us salvation.

I handle the issue the way Paul did. Watch:

Paul said they had the oracles of God.

Romans 3:1-2 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?  Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.
However, that makes them none the less in need of faith just as we have it.

And Paul later says, after the above verses...

Romans 3:9-10 What then? are we (PAUL WAS A JEW, SAYING "WE" AS SPEAKING OF "WE JEWS") better than they (GENTILES)? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
They are sinners as well as we were without Christ.

Paul stressed that sin makes a Jew a sinner just like a Gentile is a sinner.

Romans 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
Being a Jew by nature does not give one any more leverage with God than being a gentile. God is no respecter of persons.

Ask yourself why you believe God will work with natural Israel as a whole in our future. What scriptures teach that? I think you will learn that Romans 11 is where that idea comes from. I simply propose that Romans 11 is not saying that, though.

Jews can be saved today as much as any nationality can be saved. Its those of every nation and tribe and tongue and language. But their fleshly heritage is of no spiritual consequence in God's eyes since the cross, except that God chose a remnant in Paul's day to be saved. In Paul's day, I stress.

The idea of God having a special work with them in the future is, in my opinion, derived from a distortion of Romans 11. As indicated in my previous posts, I believe Romans 11 does not teach a future working with that nation as a whole. They will come in as any people will come in. Same opportunity and same chance. No preferences in our future for any nation. When Romans 11 speaks of Israel coming in, it is referring to a remnant that counts as the entire nation. remnants always counted .

In the kingdom of God there is neither Jew nor Gentile. We lose all carnal distinctions of this world when we are baptized into Christ.

Galatians 3:28 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.
