Is the Everlasting Gospel Related to Replacement Theology?
"The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: "All nations will be blessed through you" (Galatians 3:8).
If the Gospel and the prophecies related to it consist of the genetic offspring of Abraham blessing those who are not the offspring of Abraham, there ought to be passages to help us to further define what this means. From my observations, the Gentiles (which I will call the House of Noah) renounced the Torah at Babel. YHWH had previously made an everlasting covenant with the House of Noah. He promised that his family line (which consists of all nations) would never be corrupted to the point that he would wipe them out as He did at the time of the great flood. So to insure that the House of Noah maintains their covenant with YHWH, He enlisted the services of Abraham’s family line. He promised to uniquely fashion these people into a community equipped to bless the world and guide the House of Noah back into the original faith. These Israelites would influence the world by centering their time and attention on fulfilling the instructions given to Moses. Through their influence at the end of time, the nations who embrace these teaching will never stray from YHWH’s instructions forever. This is the Everlasting Gospel of the Kingdom.
But today we hear of something called “replacement theology.” This doctrine teaches that the Christian church replaced the ministry given to Israel when the Messiah died 2000 years ago. All believers who become Christians become Israel. But I have another term for this doctrine which I think is much simpler to understand and more meaningful to the minds of obedient believers. The doctrine called “Replacement Theology” is nothing more than the “Doctrine of Coveting” (Thou shall not covet is the 10th commandment) When someone sees something that belongs to another and desires it for themselves; that action is defined as coveting. Coveting was the first sin practiced in heaven by Lucifer when he desired a position that did not belong to him. So you could say that "Replacement Theology" is Lucifarian in nature. If YHWH has stated that the descendants of Israel are His Holy people, it would be a sin for those who are not descendants of Israel to find loopholes to circumvent His word. Could the sin of covetousness be one of the central themes of the great controversy at the end of time?
When the Gospel of the Kingdom is proclaimed with Divine power, this doctrine (Replacement theology) will backfire on those who have been led to believe it. Those embracing this doctrine will become confused as they see faithful Torah keeping Israelites sound the final warning to the world and bless all nations. Yet because the standards of Israelites will differ so drastically from the modern churches, many will rise up against the Holy People. Let’s look at what Moses was commanded by YHWH to write about the chosen people. “He (YHWH) has declared that He will set you (Israel) in praise, fame and honor high above all the nations He has made and that you will be a people holy to YHWH Elohiym, as he promised" (Deuteronomy 26:19). The word “nations” in this verse is translated from the Hebrew “goyim” which is another word for “gentiles”. Notice in this verse that Moses says YHWH formed the “goyim”. So the term gentiles is not a Hebrew slang word for an unsaved dirty sinner. (if that were the case, who would want to be an Gentile) YHWH formed the Gentiles through one man named Noah just as He formed Israel through Abraham. The Bible has never implied that it was ever shameful to be a gentile. This being the case, Moses reveals the unique position which He has chosen for Israel in relation to the Gentiles. Note the following:
“He will set you (Israel) in praise, fame and honor high above all the nations (goyim) He has made and that you will be a people holy to YHWH Elohiym, as he promised” (Deuteronomy 26:19). Take note in this verse that Moses says “He will set you” (future tense) rather than “He has set you” (present tense). Moses had been given prophetic wisdom to understand that the children of Israel were a work in process in his day. Earlier in the book of Deuteronomy Moses prophesied that the children of Israel would become corrupt after they crossed the Jordan. “You will not live there long but will certainly be destroyed. YHWH will scatter you among the peoples, and only a few of you will survive among the nations to which YHWH will drive you. There you will worship man-made gods of wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or eat or smell. But if from there you seek YHWH Eloyiym, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the YHWH Elohiym and obey Him" (Deuteronomy 4:26-30).
With these things in mind, let’s go back to Jacob's dream and look at the connections between the details in it and what Moses writes next. “Your (Jacob's) descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you."(Genesis 28:12-15) These two passages begin to build a profile of the children of Israel in the last days. They are not blessing the nations from within the land of Israel, they are out among the nations blessing the nations. This was the condition Yeshua spoke of when he mentioned the end of the world “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations (goyim), and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14).
