What of Israel? That is a subject for another time. What can be said now is that based on Jesus’ words, they are no longer the ekklesia of God. They are one of the “other nations” who do not recognize the kingship of Jesus. They are one of the ethne, or if you prefer the way most Bibles translate the word, Israel is now Gentile!
I pray I have not offended you by sharing what I see as an important but obscured truth found throughout the New Testament. I welcome questions and comments so please feel free to offer them below. In my next post, Lord willing, I will share on the “Myth of the Gentile Church.” I hope you will return to read it
If this blog encourages you in your walk with our king, please help spread the word by sharing, liking, plusing, or just telling folks about it. And please keep us in your prayers.
PS While there was no winner to the contest I offered last week, I am offering a consolation prize of the PDF of book The Problem with Christ, to everyone who commented on that last post prior to today.
