Danger!

Danger!” the dispensationalist pundits are shouting. “Watch out for replacement theology!” This specter of “replacement theology,” also masquerading under the pseudo-academic moniker “supersessionism,” looms ominously over Christendom. One blogger blogs, “One of the most dangerous and subversive doctrines held by adherents of Preterism, is the view that in A.D. 70, at the destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman armies, God’s covenant nation of Israel was superseded by the Christian church.”[1] A website adds, “There is a demonic cancer coursing through the life blood of the Church of Jesus Christ and its name is REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY.”[

  1. The “wailing” of Revelation 1:7 echoes the context of the “piercing” prophecy in Zechariah 12:10. The immediate result of Israel’s looking to Jesus as He returns to deliver them is that the Jewish people will mourn and wail throughout their society. The verse concludes “and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn”(12:10).

    This deep and thorough mourning in repentance will extend to all levels of Jewish society. (See verses 11-14.) Zechariah 13:1 clearly shows that the mourning will lead to a cleansing from sin: “In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.”

    This repentance and cleansing describe what other passages also affirm, namely, Israel will undergo a national cleansing. This salvation is mentioned not only by the Hebrew prophets but also by the apostle Paul in Romans 11:26-27: “And so all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”

    Zechariah 12:10-14 describes Israel’s repentance in terms of sorrow and mourning. The language recalls another amazing Messianic prophecy, that of Isaiah’s Suffering Servant in Isaiah 52:13-53:12. This “penitential dirge” may perhaps become the words repentant Israel will say as it mourns in sorrow over its rejected and crucified Messiah. On that day, Zechariah 12:10-14 will find its fulfillment:

    “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
    Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all”.

    The book of Zechariah teaches that the Jewish people must go through a dark period before the light breaks forth and all Israel will be saved. Israel’s long night of exile from her land and also from her Lord will end someday. Oh Lord, hasten that day!

    Supersession is Heresy… The Catholic like to use that word… Heresy.. and they are Up to their Eye Balls on this one!

  3. Eph 2:14-15 NKJV ” For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,”
    I do not think Scripture supports replacement theology,if anything it seems to combine the physical and the spiritual truths that are expressed in Israel and the Church. It doesn’t do away with the physical,literal,Israel though.God has made covenants with Israel,and God is NOT a man that He should lie.

    P.S.Where was this written,and by whom was it written?
    This Is A True Christian Forum, Not A Judeo Christian Forum. There Is Nothing Judeo About True Christians, Or This True Christian Forum.

    Seems like I’ve read this before.

    On the Jews and Their Lies
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On the Jews and Their Lies (German: Von den Jüden und jren Lügen; in modern spelling Von den Juden und ihren Lügen) is a 65,000-word antisemitic treatise written in 1543 by the German Reformation leader Martin Luther.

    In the treatise, Luther describes Jews as a “base, whoring people, that is, no people of God, and their boast of lineage, circumcision, and law must be accounted as filth.”[1] Luther wrote that they are “full of the devil’s feces … which they wallow in like swine,”[2] and the synagogue is an “incorrigible whore and an evil slut”.[3]

    In the first ten sections of the treatise, Luther expounds, at considerable length, upon his views concerning Jews and Judaism and how these compare against Christians and Christianity. Following this exposition, Section XI of the treatise advises Christians to carry out seven remedial actions. These are (1) for Jewish synagogues and schools to be burned to the ground, and the remnants buried out of sight; (2) for houses owned by Jews to be likewise razed, and the owners made to live in agricultural outbuildings; (3) for their religious writings to be taken away; (4) for rabbis to be forbidden to preach, and to be executed if they do; (5) for safe conduct on the roads to be abolished for Jews; (6) for usury to be prohibited, and for all silver and gold to be removed and “put aside for safekeeping”; and (7) for the Jewish population to be put to work as agricultural slave labor.[4]

    THIS IS HOW SOME CHRISTIANS THINK!
