(Main Scripture Ephesians 2:11-19)
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe Arizona, and this is the first in a series of short videos on Israel, that are going to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that the Jews are not God’s chosen people in the New Testament. But that rather we as believers, we as Christians are God’s chosen people. And it doesn’t matter what nationality we’re of. We’re God’s people if we believe in Jesus Christ.
In the course of these videos we will also prove that the modern day nation of Israel over in the Middle East, is a complete fraud. Frankly, the physical nation of Israel has been replaced in the New Testament by a spiritual nation that is made up of all believers. Now, I could put all this into one long video that would be several hours long, and have hundreds of scriptures that we are going to use from the Bible to teach this, but rather I am going to put out just a series of short videos, that just give you one digestible truth at a time, line upon line, precept upon precept.
Today we are going to focus on Ephesians Chapter 2. We will just do one scripture per video that proves these truths. Let’s start in (Ephesians chapter 2, verse 11). The Bible reads “Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ." So right there the Bible is speaking unto the gentiles saying that when they were without Christ, he says “you are aliens unto Israel, you are strangers of the commonwealth of Israel, or the nation of Israel”. But he says “now you have been made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Listen to verse 19. It says "Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God”. So according to this scripture, we as believers are fellowcitizens of Israel. He says that we were in time past foreigners, we used to be aliens and strangers of the nation of Israel. But now we have been made nigh unto Israel by the blood of Christ. And he says we are no longer strangers. We are no longer foreigners, but that we are fellow citizens of Israel.
According to this scripture, I am a citizen of Israel. You are a citizen of Israel if you are a saved, born again child of God. This alone is a powerful scripture that teaches that we in the New Testament are the chosen people of God.
Stick around for the rest of these videos; there are so many more powerful scriptures that teach this. This is just one among many. If you watch all these videos, I guarantee that it will be proven to you over and over again that the
unbelieving Jews today are under the wrath of God. They are NOT God’s chosen people whatsoever, but that we as believers have replaced them as the people of God, as the Holy Nation.
