It is a sad thing to witness the problem of Antisemitism that exists within some Christian circles today. Ignorance breeds hatred. As I have mentioned in a previous post, only one of the three Abrahamic faiths does not belong. Jesus said in John 4:22 that “salvation is from the Jews.” Christians and Jews are intertwined because in the end, God’s promise to His chosen people endures. It is written that the Jews will come to know their Messiah.
As Gentile believers in Jesus, we are likened unto the Magi who came from foreign lands and followed the sign in the heavens proclaiming the coming of Jesus Christ. In the same manner, we gentile believers are paying close attention to the signs of His soon return.
“And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.
19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
27 For this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins.”
28 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, 31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. 32 For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all.
“He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.”
1 John 2:9
Any person who claims to be a Christian and is an anti-Zionist and holds to Replacement theology is still in darkness.
