The Prodigals (Israel) Return Home.

In the midst of the chaos that is going on in Israel today there is a segment of the Church who is bringing forth an old teaching that has been filled with error. This teaching involves the Gentile Church replacing the Children of Israel as God's favorites. This teaching is commonly called “Replacement Theology”. It is based off of a misinterpretation of Romans 11.


Romans 11: 28 - 32 (NKJV)

"28 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, 31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. 32 For God has [h]committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all."


This misinterpretation came from an honest mistake but the devil has taken it and twisted it and made it his own version of a lie. In order to combat what the enemy is doing we must always seek the Holy Spirit for guidance when it concerns the Word of God.


When you understand the full history of the relationship between God and Jacob who is now called Israel. You will see that relationship was born out of God's relationship with Abraham. God made a promise to Abraham that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky and the sands in the sea. God never lied. For over 6000 years the Nation of Israel has been in an on again, off again relationship with the Most High God. Israel would sin, God would cut them off. Israel would repent, God would bring them back. This went on numerous times. No matter what, It is His good pleasure to honor His word to Abraham and bring them back into the fold in a complete way.


The Bible is filled with many different stories and representations of God's love. One of the most common stories that we use in the modern Church is that of the relationship of the father with the prodigal son. When you look at this relationship on the surface level it gives us a clear representation of the kind of love that God has for us. This love is replicated in many different ways. When you look at God's love through the eyes of a father, even when the son goes off and does his own thing it is always in the father's heart to bring the son back into the fold, to bring him back home. It has always been God’s plan to bring Israel back home.


The ability for some of the Church to misinterpret the relationship between God and Israel is completely understandable. Unfortunately, we live in a time where speculation and error cloud the true meaning of the words that are found in the Bible. When you look at the prodigal son story found in the Bible (Luke 15: 11 – 32), yous should look at it from the perspective of the Jewish people. Look at it from the perspective of God once again demonstrating how much He loves, cares for, and adores His people, Israel. Yes they went through a period of turmoil, rejection, and even chastisement from God. However, if you put the whole story together you can see that God is speaking today to His prodigals, the Nation of Israel and beckoning them to come home to Him.


We are going to see a dramatic shift in world events in the short days ahead. One of those is going to be a renewing of the relationship between God and His people. This is one of the greatest fulfillments of Bible prophecy that we will ever witness in our day. We are in the Hanukkah and Christmas season where miracles and gifts are being provided. As you think about the story of the prodigal remember the great length’s that God went to to restore His people back unto Himself. Know that there truly is nothing that can separate Israel or us from His love. (Romans 8: 35 – 39).


Romans 8: 35 - 39 (NKJV)

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
