What is GOD's eternal purpose for Israel?
Who is Israel today?
Does Israel still matter to GOD today? Are Jews still GOD's special people? Why hasn't the Jerusalem temple been rebuilt?
What should be the Christian's attitude towards the modern country of Israel? Should Christians support Israel for religious reasons?
Are there yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecies for physical Israel?
It's time for us to re-think what Scripture reveals about Israel. Will you join me? Let's do it!
Part #1: Re-Thinking GOD's Promises to Abraham
In order to understand Israel's future, we must first understand the past. What did GOD actually promise Abraham, the grandfather of Israel? How and when are those promises realized?
In this video, we take a fresh look at these questions and more.
Part #2: Re-Thinking Israel: Covenant and Failure
GOD made ancient Israel a covenant: Obey me and I will be your God and you will be my people.
Israel accepted but broke the covenant repeatedly, chasing other gods. So GOD rejected them.
In this video, we look at how that unfolded and the promises GOD made to ancient Israel about the future—curses for the wicked and blessings for the righteous remnant. Understanding this important truth is foundational to a proper perception of Jesus' church.
Part #3: Re-Thinking Israel: Heirs of the Promise
The majority of ancient Israel was wicked and got destroyed. The covenant with those people was eliminated, superseded by a better new covenant.
Thankfully, the New Testament writers explained these things in great detail.
And that is the focus of this video. We look at who Scripture says are the heirs of GOD’s promises to Abraham—the true Israelites.
