The true Israel is spiritual and composed of all those who have put all their trust, all their faith, in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is we — the true body of Christ — who are joint-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17) of the promises given by God to Abraham and which flow not through the children of the flesh (Ishmael) but through the children of faith by way of the child of promise, Isaac, in whom shall thy seed be called (Genesis 21:12, Romans 9:7, Hebrews 11:18).
Jesus shows us in John 8 that not all who are of the physical seed of Abraham are of God. He calls these self-righteous “Jews” the children of the devil (John 8:44). He calls these same folk the synagogue of Satan, twice — in Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9. In Romans 9, Paul says the same thing that Jesus emphasized in John 8:
Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son. (Romans 9:6-9)
Zionists have made an idol of the modern State of Israel
Zionists have made an idol of the modern State of Israel, and are gravely mistaking Israel of the flesh (reread that passage above) — which is full of abominations — for the true spiritual Israel, who are the children of the promise, not “them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan” (Revelation 2:9).
But the likewise wicked mainline churches, worldwide, have (alongside the wicked worldwide media) thoroughly indoctrinated their worldly and largely Bible-illiterate parishioners with a monstrous lie of the devil that the wicked State of Israel and its proponents are God’s “chosen people”, the “apple of His eye”, etc. When God’s true Word is irrefutably clear that the true children of the promise are all who have been saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9), whom the synagogue of Satan, by definition, have rejected for two millennia.
Not surprisingly, the latter are God’s enemies, as are all who reject the Son:
Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. (1 John 2:23)
And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. (Ephesians 2:1-3)
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. (Ephesians 5:6)
Let me also be clear that a growing number of those who are of the physical seed have come to Christ in faith and in truth, as did Saul/Paul and the other apostles. All who come to Jesus Christ in faith are saved thereby. But not all who are of the physical seed of Abraham are going to come to Christ, as we can see in Revelation 3:
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. (Revelation 3:9)
There is only one gospel
Furthermore, there is only one gospel — not one for “the church [age]” and another “dispensation” for “the Jews”, as is clear throughout Scripture, but is nailed perfectly in Revelation 14:
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. (Revelation 14:6)
This one everlasting gospel will be preached to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. That very much includes those who call themselves Jews. Indeed, it is the very gospel which Jesus himself, and later Paul, preached to the physical seed and to the gentiles (cf, John 4) alike.
It’s likewise important to note that the Israeli flag that Zionist “Christians” love to “stand with” is a satanic symbol. The star of Remphan (Acts 7:43) emblazoned in the center of the flag is an ungodly hexagram. As Paul wrote in his epistles to the Corinthians:
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. (1 Corinthians 10:21)
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14)
Let us do as Jesus commanded of all His disciples — that is, to preach the true faith-based gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15), for there is no other means for anyone to escape eternal torment in hellfire:
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. (1 John 5:12)
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:17-18)
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8)
On the other hand, all who come to Christ in faith are the true spiritual Israel and are thereby made heirs of the promises given by God to Abraham and his seed:
And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:29)
