In Jerusalem, a group of Orthodox Jewish scholars have gathered together and their conclusion as they look at the philosophy of Replacement Theology is that it is dangerous and it is anti-Semitic as well. I asked Christian Theologian Dr. John Whitcomb is Replacement Theology dangerous?
Dr. John Whitcomb: It is very, very dangerous, in fact you read in Psalm 83 someday all Israel's enemies surrounding them will say come let us wipe them out as a nation, let the name of Israel be remembered no more, let us possess for ourselves the pastures of God. Well friends, God knew about this thousands of years ago obviously what His plan was for Israel, but read in Ezekiel 37, He's going to bring those dry dead bones as I could never have believed as a soldier in WWII as I saw the results of the Holocaust and concentration camps, six million Jews dead in Europe. I never believed in 1945 I would live to see six million Jews back in their promised land. What a miracle! Not a supernatural miracle, but a providential miracle of God to prepare for the real miracle which is the conversion of the nation.
Jimmy: These Orthodox Jews say that the very existence of a Jewish state is actual evidence which disproves Replacement Theology.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Israel as a nation today disproves the anti-Semitic Replacement Theology that is a part of some church doctrine in our world today and is actually setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Replacement Theology is incorrect from a logical prospective, a Biblical prospective, and a prophetic prospective as well. Logically, the fact that there is a Jewish state in the Middle East today 65 years of age is indicative of the fact that God does have a plan for the Jewish people which would disprove Replacement Theology.
Biblically, Replacement Theology is disproved when you think about the covenants God gave the Jewish people. Prophetically, Ezekiel 37 says the Jews will be gathered from all over the world, come back into the land of their forefathers, and be a state once again. Ezekiel 38 talks about an Alignment of Nations that will try to destroy the Jewish people and Ezekiel 40-46 talks about a temple that will be on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. All of these are indicative of the fact that God does have a plan for the Jewish people.
Replacement Theology is an anti-Semitic, dangerous theology which is actually setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
