All Israel Shall Be Saved

 

But, in Abraham shall all nations be blessed, for he is the father of many nations. The ‘terms’ of this Abramic Covenant made with Abraham and his seed are plainly stated in Gen.17:1 “…walk before me, and be thou perfect.”    Perfect defined as follows: entire (literally, figuratively or morally); also (as noun) integrity, truth. (Strong’s Concordance # H8549.)

 

You see, “they are not all Israel, who are of Israel,” and “he is not a Jew, who is one outwardly, rather, he who is one in the heart.”  “And so, all Israel shall be saved.”  Remember, the inheritance is not of law. Therefore, not to those to whom the Law was given, except of course, in Christ!  In Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek, but both have been made one!

 

It should be noted here that all this is very injurious to Dispensational Theology! Dispensationalism stands on three pillars, all of which retain (physical) Israel as God’s chosen people. The center pillar being Covenant! The first pillar is ‘the kingdom reverting back to Israel’; and the third pillar is ‘a Millennial Reign of Christ in physical Israel’. (Jerusalem to be exact).

Dispensationalism teaches that the Nation of Israel will be re-established - it has; and that Christ will sit on the literal throne of David for a thousand years – He will not. Neither will animal sacrifices be reinstituted or the literal Temple be rebuilt, signs that the Mosaic Covenant, and thereby the Jews, are God’s plan, while the Church is only parenthetical to them!  Not so, as we have seen above.

 

 

The (Gentile) Galatians are the Children of Promise,  the True Children

 

Gal 4:24-28 This is being said as an allegory, for these women represent two covenants. The one woman, Hagar, is from Mount Sinai, and her children are born into slavery. 25Now Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to present-day Jerusalem, because she is in slavery along with her children. 26 But the heavenly Jerusalem is the free woman, and she is our mother. 27 For it is written, "Rejoice, you childless woman, who cannot give birth to any children! Break into song and shout, you who feel no pains of childbirth! For the children of the deserted woman are more numerous than the children of the woman who has a husband." 28 So you, brothers, are children of the promise, like Isaac. (ISV)   So we too, along with them, are the children of promise.  Just like Isaac.

 

 

Now Consider

 

And after sixty-two weeks, Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself. And the people of a coming ruler shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end shall be with the flood, and ruins are determined, and war shall be until the end. Dan 9:26  (LITV)

 

I used the Literal Translation of the Bible here because it reads closest to the Septuagint. The KJV is the Moseratic Text and, as you know Jesus, quoted the LXX. 

 

It is a deception that physical Israel remains God's chosen people.  The 70 weeks of Daniel "determined for his people" were completed in 70 A.D.  [Please look up the words ‘determined’ and ‘finish’ in Strong’s Concordance; (numbers 2852 and 3607 respectively.)]

 

Did you know that Julian the Apostate, the Roman Emperor who turned away from Christ, tried to prove the (then held) Christian doctrine wrong, by attempting to rebuild the Jewish Temple? Daniel 9:26 determines the destruction of their Sanctuary, and the early church taught it would never be rebuilt because Jesus said, “your house (sanctuary) is left unto you desolate” , (Mat 23:38), and that Jerusalem would be trodden down under the Gentiles till the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled.” (Luke 21:2)  (This corresponds to the end of the age, which is equivalent to ‘the last day’, for this reason: Jesus also said the kingdom would be taken from you – meaning Israel – and given to the Gentiles. Jesus made no statements concerning it being given back later and there is no other biblical possibility of it reverting back to Israel. Jesus’ statement that follows will prove that the Jews time and their sanctuary has been complete since 70 A.D.: And he said unto them, These are the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. (Luke 24:44)   End of Jewish myth!
