Jesus called the Pharisees hypocrites because they
were able to discern the signs of the seasons, but not the signs of His coming as proclaimed in Scripture. This is the real
issue that I'm trying to draw attention to: The King is Coming!
Granted it is hard it is to believe God's Word as being completed
in our day. The simple profoundness of it all I think is overwhelming to many, and they would just rather not think about
it, as an escape from facing such issues.
But Abraham walked by faith, believing in the God Who would complete what He initiated.
This is also why I have come to realize that the faithful remnant Israel (144,000) are indeed a small remnant who believe
in the fulfillment of God's prophetic Word.
God’s chosen people. First the Jewish nation and then those who were grafted into the vine, are God’s instrument to
show mankind the spiritual reasoning and purposes for mankind. God’s covenant with the nation of Israel is everlasting. The church was grafted into the vine, not replacing the vine.
144,000 (of Israel) are protected from the wrath of God to come during the "Day
of the Lord” & His wrath.
See: Rev. 7:3-4, 9:4, 18:4, Ezek. 39:29, Isa. 26:20-21, John 19:37
Rev. 7:3-4 speaks of the faithful 144,000 of Israel protected from the wrath about to be unleashed by a seal of protection.
also Rev. 9:4 (those sealed not hurt)

Ezekiel 37 prophesied that
Israel would no longer be two nations but one in the latter days. This prophecy was fulfilled in 1948. Likewise Jesus stated that Jerusalem would be trodden down by the Gentiles until the time of the Gentiles
would be fulfilled. This promise was
completed in 1967 when Jerusalem was recaptured by Israel.
A good example of Israel still being God’s
chosen people is Daniel’s 70-week prophecy (Dan. 9:24-27) where God clearly states “I (God) have determined 70 periods of seven with the people
(Israel) and the holy city (Jerusalem)”.
in verse 25 Daniel states a prophecy of God’s promised deliverance of a Messiah when he states: “Know therefore
and understand, from the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the coming of Messiah the Prince shall be 69 periods
of seven.” This prophecy was
ultimately fulfilled with Jesus’ first coming; the fulfillment having been initiated when Artexerxes gave the order
to Nehemiah (Neh 2:1,8). This prophetical
fulfillment gives us confidence that God will complete His covenant of 70 periods of seven with the people (Israel) and with
the holy city (Jerusalem) for one period of seven (Dan. 9:24-27).
John Darby in the 1850s started Dispensational theology, which is the foundation for Replacement
Theology. His position was then heretically
expanded by the Scofield Bible, which is today the New American Standard and other variations of NASB, which actually changes
the Hebrew word for “confirm” to be translated as “make”
in Dan. 9:27. The consequences of this ‘one-word-change’
are huge; it virtually eliminates the two major prophecies of Jesus’ Second Coming
for one period of seven as God had so covenanted with Israel and Jerusalem.
By this simple one-word change, they used the word “make” to justify their interpretation
that it is the antichrist “making” a covenant (contract) with Israel in the latter days. The fact is, the word is “confirm” infers confirming a covenant of one period of seven, God’s
covenant which only God can “confirm”. This gave rise not only to Replacement theology, but to Pre-Tribulation Rapture theology, held by the majority of the
It is God’s covenant with Israel and the people of Jerusalem. Consequently in 1948 when Israel became a nation after the Diaspora of nearly 2000 years, it fulfilled
the first part of the prophecy in Daniel 9:24,27 where God says He has determined 70 periods of seven upon the people (Israel);
….. and verse 27 “and He shall confirm His covenant with Israel for that one period of seven”. So you see that, a) God’s covenant with His
chosen people has not been replaced by the church and b) Replacement Theology is heretical.
Likewise, the second part
of verse 27 speaks of God confirming His covenant with the holy city (Jerusalem).
This prophecy was fulfilled in 1967 when Jerusalem was recaptured by Israel (the people).
Obviously, God cannot confirm His covenant with the people and the holy city of Jerusalem unless the people (Israel) and the holy city (Jerusalem) exist.
Do you see the profound importance of the one word change???
the following references on Israel being the chosen Remnant who will be protected as they go through the complete “Tribulation
Period”. From what I can see,
they are the only ones left to rule and reign with Jesus for His 1000-year reign who survive the complete ordeal.
While the entire website revolves around the completion of God’s
covenant with Israel through the 2nd Coming of the Lord, the most related website pages to this topic are the following
