“We Christians cannot speak of the ‘promised land’ as an exclusive right for a privileged Jewish people. This promise was nullified by Christ. There is no longer a chosen people – all men and women of all countries have become the chosen people."Oh, really? Not according to the great Jewish Apostle Paul from the tribe of Benjamin, commissioned by the risen Lord Jesus Christ Himself who wrote to the Romans in Chapter 11:
25For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, then shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27For this is my covenant unto them, when I take away their sins.
28As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes.
29For the gifts and the calling of God are without repentance.
30For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
32For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
The Land of Israelwas the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here there spiritual, religious and national identity was formed. Here they achieved independence and created a culture of national and universal significance. Here they wrote and gave the Bible to the world.
May 14, 1948, David Ben-GurionThe disgraced Roman Catholic cult is up to its nasty lies again. They taught it before in the past, and now are pushing it again…. I’m talking about “Replacement Theology”, or the lie that the “church” has replaced Israel, and that Christ has nullified God’s everlasting promises given to the Jews in the Old Testament.
Jesus said to the unbelieving chief priests and Pharisees of Israel that the kingdom of God would be taken from them and given to a nation that would bring forth fruits in Matthew's Gospel Chapter 21; however, this would only continue and Jerusalem would be trodden down until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. This is no way nullified God's prophetic word and promises to the Jewish people of restoration to their ancient homeland of Israel in the latter days, which occurred in 1948 when Israel became a state in one day, or the Abraham land covenant written and guaranteed by God in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament.
“The Holy Scriptures cannot be used to justify the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of the Palestinians, to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestinian lands,” Monsignor Cyril Salim Bustros, Greek Melkite archbishop of Our Lady of the Annunciation in Boston, Massachusetts, and president of the “Commission for the Message,” said at Saturday’s Vatican press conference.According to the words of this false prophet, the Holy Scriptures pertaining to the restoration of the Jewish people to their ancient homeland of Israel by God are irrelevant. Ezekiel 36, Amos 9
There was never any displacement of the fabricated “palestinians” when Israel became a nation in 1948. The arabs tried to displace the Jews by attacking them and lost, while the arabs of the area fled the fighting, thinking they would return later as the winners.
Some things never change. It was the Romans, after sacking Jerusalem in 70AD, who changed the name of the land of Israel to Palestine, hoping to wipe out everything connected to the Jews, as they and their collaborators are attempting to do again today; but the Jewish people, while the majority were scattered throughout the nations, have always had a presence in the Holy Land.
At the same time, there has never been in all of history a Palestinian language or people, or culture, and there has never ever been a land known as Palestine ruled by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs from Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq. The only ones "occupying" Israel who should not be are the arabs.
Romans Chapter 11 would be a good place for the Roman Catholic cult to begin reading the Bible and see what God's Word declares about the Jewish people.
