Replacement Theology

False Teaching:

Replacement Theology states that Israel has no further place in God's plans, and that when Israel came into judgment for rejecting the Messiah, they were cut off forever and the promises that had been made to her then came to belong to the Church.

From this position, Dominionists teach that the church has replaced Israel, indeed has become "spiritual Israel." They teach that the church is to be governed by the same laws, is subject to the same curses, and is promised the same blessings as Israel once was.


God is surely not through with Israel. They have been under parental discipline, but never to be cast off.

The restoration of the nation of Israel speaks for itself:

In spite of being dispersed throughout the earth for 2,000 years, not assimilated but preserved as a people throughout that world-wide diaspora, and after living through nearly constant persecutions, pograms, crusades, and even the Holocaust in which Satan tried to prevent the possibility of the nation of Israel even being born, the fact that Israel survived all that and today is a reborn nation in the very place from which they were driven two millenia ago, is a miracle in our day as great as any miracle ever performed.

God’s preservation of Israel throughout the time of her dispersion is nothing less than the demonstration of his faithfulness. When was the last time you saw an “Amalekite,” or a “Girgashite,” or a “Hivite” or any of the other “ites” contemporary with ancient Israel? They’re all gone. But the children of Israel remain, awaiting their redemption which will most certainly will take place, as the prophecies of their restoration to their land have taken place.

Since the nation of Israel was created in 1948, she has been attacked several times by the combined forces of Muslim nations surrounding her, yet Israel remains. There is no word other than “miraculous” that can describe the survival of Israel.

Genesis 15 shows God making an unconditional covenant with Abraham, and later confirmed to his son Isaac and later again to Isaac's son Jacob as an everlasting covenant.

"Then God said: 'No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him."
Genesis 17:19

"He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. Remember His covenant always, the word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, the covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac, and confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, 'To you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance...'"
Genesis 16:14-18
