Replacement, or Fulfillment…?

cross_temple“Replacement theology”. This is a charge leveled by proponents of Christian Zionism towards those who would dare question the dispensationalist teaching which asserts that Israel is “God’s chosen nation”, and that the most important aspect of this chosen status is the fact that “God promised them the Land”.

The New Testament of the Bible, from beginning to end, endeavors to explain how the mission of Jesus Christ was for God to take on human form, and die in the place of fallen sinful humanity, and rise again, in order that we might have the ability to experience new, resurrected Life ourselves, along with Christ in His Kingdom, if we put our faith in Him. This applies to every man, woman and child on the face of the earth, regardless of race, gender, nationality or age. However, this amazing and profound proclamation is rendered insufficient, and irrelevant, by those who still prefer to cling to concepts of “redemption”, “Messiah”, “kingdom” and “inheritance” which are earthly, and not eternal. This is what “Zionism” is all about, and the reason that “Dual-Covenant theology” was invented.

In the Bible, “Mount Zion” is the mountain of God, the “New Jerusalem”, a city “built not by human hands. (Heb 12:22/23, Heb 11:10, Acts 7:48/49, 2 Cor 5:1)

In this light, “Political Zionism” can really be seen as nothing short of trying to create “heaven on earth”.  This is the theology of “Dominionism”, the aim of bringing into being the occult axiom of “As Above, So Below“.

But getting back to “Replacement Theology”, the accusation which alleges that Christians who deny the existence of any “dual-covenant” are guilty of a most hideous and offensive error, because they are supposedly saying that the Church “replaced” Israel. This is simply a straw man argument, an attempt to discredit the opposing side by means of reframing the entire topic in a way that the Bible itself does not do. It is not a question of “replacing or not replacing”, it is a matter of “fulfilling or not fulfilling”…

The Old Testament is full of things which the New Testament declares to have been “shadows” of realities that are in fact eternal in nature, various forms of prophetic symbolism which in every single case were fulfilled by the Christ and His victory over death. (Hebrews 10)

Did the cross “replace” the sacrifices made on the altar of the Temple, or did it fulfill what was prophesied by the fact of what the sacrifices could never achieve themselves?

Did Christ’s teachings “replace” the Law, or did they fulfill the Law?

Did Jesus “replace” the Sacrifice God called Abraham to make of his son Isaac, or did He fulfill what was prophesied by the ram caught in the thicket?

Did John the Baptist “replace” the prophet Elijah, or did he fulfill what was prophesied about the “Elijah that is to come”?

Did Jesus “replace” Melchizedek, or did he fulfill what was prophesied through the person of Melchizedek and the type of priesthood he held?

Did Jesus’ resurrection “replace” Jonah being spat out of the whale, or Joseph being brought out of the Egyptian prison cell, or did it fulfill what was prophesied through their lives?

Did Jesus “replace” the Ark which saved Noah and his family from the Flood, or did He fulfill what was prophesied and portrayed, as the only way to be saved from eternal death and separation from God…?

The Law. The Prophets. The Patriarchs. The Temple. The Sacrifices. The Priesthood. The festivals. The Sabbaths. The food regulations. The New Moon celebrations. The rite of circumcision. The judges. The Israelite monarchy.

Practically everything which combines into all that can be considered that which constitutes “Israel”, serves a single, profound purpose. “These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” (Col. 2:17)

This was the teaching which infuriated the scribes and Pharisees to the point of screaming and gnashing their teeth in rage, and prompted the Pharisees to hunt down and kill the followers of Jesus for decades after His resurrection and ascension. This is the teaching which still flies in the face of modern Judaism (i.e. the Talmudic Rabbinic tradition, the ancestor of Pharisaical Judaism) to this very day. The whole notion of “dual covenant theology” is contradictory to the teachings of Jesus, the content of everything the N.T. writers said, and contrary to very heart of God. The only way Christians can swayed by the false teachings of modern prophecy “scholars” who cite singular, out-of-context verses like “Israel is the apple of His eye” is if they do not bother to stop and read the scriptures, in their entirety, for themselves. This is what false teaching has always relied upon, from the very beginning, and so it is now.

God of course is still in control. The things going on today in the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are still part and parcel to God’s prophetic master plan. 1948 was not necessarily the glorious recreation of the “Promised Kingdom” as Zionists claim it to be, but it didn’t catch God off guard either! The point is that through it all, we must never allow ourselves to get fooled by people who would seek to confuse the “copies and shadows of what it is heaven” with the realities themselves. (Heb 8:5)

The Church is not a “replacement” for Israel, because “Israel”, in the temporal, earthly sense, was a “shadow of what was to come”, the Kingdom of Heaven.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I’m sure many people think about this everyday like me. I understand there are false Jews who worship Satan like Jesus says. There are those that are true Jews that fell away from god in false god worship. Still some real Jews that believe in the true God but but don’t believe Jesus is God (if that makes sense) and I’ve met Jews that have found Christ!
    In the story of Abraham I believe that was God making a true covenant and foreshadowing Christ sacrifice. Do you think the angel placed the baby in Sarah’s womb ? Isaac? I’ve always wondered that!

    1. Oh yea its very clear that Gods promises are not based on genetics for sure. DNA is very interesting re the blood lines of cain though. In these end times dna plays a significant part of the mark of the beast. Amazingly Christ died for all no matter what dna if they turn to the true God! Will the purebreads of cain ever turn? I dont know if thats possible? Its all in Gods hands ..its astonishing how Gods timing is perfect in everything He plans. One thing is true.. He did make a covenent with the Jews for a reason and died for all for the same reason.

  2. The very definition of Zionism is man’s attempt to make the Kingdom of GOD into a kingdom FOR the Jews.

    First of all, most Zionists reject Jesus Christ. To them, He was NOT the Messiah, and prophecy was NOT fulfilled by Him. So the problem with most Jews today is the SAME problem in Jesus’ day.

    The Zionists believe that THEY ARE THEIR OWN MESSIAH, and they are trying, and HAVE BEEN TRYING since 1948 to set up a “Jewish Utopia”, which they CLAIM IS the kingdom of god. (Notice the little “g”) Jesus said “My Kingdom IS NOT of this world”.

    Christian Zionists condone killing of innocent people, taking their homes and land, which their ancestors have had for centuries, and WHATEVER other atrocities Israel dishes out to their neighbors – ALL IN THE NAME OF GOD!!!

    Many evangelicals see 1948 as the SUPER SIGN – the birth of the kingdom of god. As you said, the Kingdom of God came into being when Jesus came, died and rose again, and IT IS A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM, and those who except Jesus for WHO HE IS……ARE TRUE ISRAEL, and WE ARE TRUE JEWS!!! Those who are making a claim to the plot of dirt in the Middle East are NOT TRUE JEWS, they are the “SynaGOGue of Satan. (Rev 2:9 / 3:9 – They “SAY they are Jews, but are NOT, but do LIE”)

    I don’t believe 1948 is the super sign that many think it is. They look at it as a GOOD thing, ALTHOUGH, IT IS PROPHETIC! Jesus told the Jews of His day that “your house is left to you DESOLATE”, and in 70 AD, Jesus prophetic words happened. Jerusalem AND the temple were DESTROYED. I believe THAT was the “deadly wound” of Rev.13. But in 1948, that “deadly wound” was HEALED, and although IT IS prophetic, it is NOT a good thing, because it is talking about ‘the beast’…….NOT the kingdom of god. So you can see the significance of Zionist Christians having this mindset. They are being set up to worship the beast!!! (Thank you John Darby and CI Scofield!)

    The MAJORITY (there’s that word again) of evangelicals embrace all of this, and will flog you with a quickness if you say ANYTHING negative about Israel. This idea is embedded very deeply within their beliefs, and it is SO WRONG!! The sheep have been lied to for a very long time. This is the ONLY teaching that some of them know, and they will defend Israel before they will their OWN COUNTRY!!
    Many who think 911 was an inside job have NO PROBLEM thinking their own country would do such a thing, but if you say that Israel had a BIG hand in it, they will thrash you to NO END!!. Israel does NO WRONG……in their eyes!!! How very blind they are. They UNKNOWINGLY defend THE BEAST!! How far will they go? Time will tell.

    1. Another passage of scripture comes to mind, and we see and hear it ALL THE TIME from Zionist Christians, when they talk about Israel. The passage says that people will say: ” Who is like unto the beast and who can make war with him”? And they MARVEL after the beast. Isn’t this TRUE of Christian Zionists? They say; “mess with Israel and GOD will mess with YOU”! And; “God is fighting for Israel and no one will defeat them”!! Ever heard that?? I’m SURE you have. Is that NOT fulfillment of this very prophecy?! Indeed they DO “marvel” after the beast……THINKING they are “blessing the “CHOSEN ONE’S”!!! How sad it is!!
