Some teachers have taught a replacement theology
Where the church has replaced Israel
But God has never rejected His people
And His promise is not temporal.
A God proclaimed covenant is always enduring
And His promises always prove true.
“I will bless those who bless you, “the Almighty promised
“And curse those who dare to curse you!”
While it may be recorded that Israel blundered
And did not acknowledge her King…
A period’s predicted… somewhere in the future…
Where His coming will change everything.
The root of our faith is planted in Israel…
Remember we are grafted in.
If we cut down the root then I beg to question
Where and how does our own faith begin?
Where does the seed of salvation come from?
Did Jesus not say from The Jew?
It has been channeled through God’s chosen people
And the birth of the Christ proved it true.
The Word tells us that we are the branches…
That we are held up by the root.
Together with Israel we have formed one new man
And may our branches be loaded with fruit.
The father of our faith is Father Abraham…
And his seed is the Lord Jesus Christ.
We’ve been adopted…are heirs to the promise
Through the Cross and the Lord’s sacrifice.
But we are no longer a Jew OR a Gentile…
We are One in the Savior of souls.
Separated no longer by ethnicity or gender…
For together we make up a whole.

This dedication is to my favorite and the most wonderful
Jewish lady on PoetryPoem with lots of Jesus Huggs.
Your descendants will take
possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring[a] all nations on earth
will be blessed,[b] because you have obeyed me.”
For this reason I have asked to see you
and talk with you. It is because of the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain.”
You Samaritans worship
what you do not know;
we worship what we do know,
for salvation is from the Jews
Now to Abraham and his Seed
were the promises made.
He does not say, “And to seeds,”
as of many, but as of one,
“And to your Seed,”[a] who is Christ.
Galatians 3: 27-29
For all of you who were baptized
into Christ have clothed yourselves
with Christ. There is neither
Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free,
neither male nor female, for you are all one
in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ,
then you are Abraham’s seed,
and heirs according to the promise.
Remember that at that time you were
separate from Christ, excluded from
citizenship in Israel and foreigners
to the covenants of the promise,
without hope and without God in the world.
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were
far away have been brought near
by the blood of Christ.
For he himself is our peace, who has
made the two one and has destroyed the barrier,
the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside
in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations.
His purpose was to create in himself
one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace,
