Israel: Past, Present, and Future #11

As we consider objections to Israel being restored to her land of old, let me emphasize again that though I believe the Scripture teaches Israel will yet be converted to Christ and become a Christian nation, will at that time be brought into the Church of Jesus Christ, and will dwell in her land in peace and safety among the nations of the world, nevertheless, I do not believe the Scripture teaches that this future converted Israel will re-build the temple, re-institute the priesthood, the sacrifices, and the ceremonies of the Old Covenant Church which were abolished in Christ at His death on the cross (Colossians 2:14).
For many Christians, the promise of the land to Israel and the re-institution of the Old Covenant ceremonies are bound together in God's future purpose for Israel. That I vigorously oppose and deny. The promise of the land to Israel is a national promise to be realized when Israel turns in faith to Jesus Christ; whereas the Old Covenant ceremonies have been nailed to the cross of Christ (the Church of the Old Testament was a Church underage but is now realized in the full-grown Church of the New Testament). Thus, Israel and all of the nations will in the future be united in the same olive tree (Visible Church), and profess and practice the same doctrine, worship, and church government. Israel as a nation has a future purpose in God's plan. Israel as an Old Testament Church has no future purpose in God's plan—but is realized in the New Testament Church and
New Covenant in Christ's blood.
