Even Sir Isaac Newton thought Israel would be restored as a nation because of Bible prohecy. He said the manner of how it happens, I know not, let time be the interpreter. This was back in the 1700s.
Jaime~actually it was a a very common
teachings even in the days of the Reformers~read Calvin and Luther (who rejected the teaching, yet he speaks of it) But, the teaching then and now has evolved to include many heresies that are connected with such a belief. It comes mostly I believe through Catholicism that teaches:
“That the Jews are participants in God’s salvation is theologically unquestionable, but how that can be possible without confessing Christ explicitly, is and remains an unfathomable divine mystery.”
They have a rat hole to climb into with every heresy that flows from their mouths!
That is NOT the mystery
that Paul spoke of in Romans 11! The blinded in part was in THAT GENERATION (for the most part, yet still remain with many in our days) during the time of the true biblical reformation of going from the OT worship of the Jews to The Religion of JESUS CHRIST~there were many regenerate natural branches
yet UNCONVERTED to the religion of Jesus Christ, who LIKE PAUL could have been converted BY THE GOSPEL if they would believe such men like Paul~much easier to converted regenerate unconverted Jews than regenerate unconverted Gentiles! Nevertheless, all of ISRAEL (both elect
Jews and Gentiles even if unconverted will be saved at the coming of Jesus Christ, for the gifts and calling of God are without repentance! THIS IS THE MYSTERY
that Paul was laboring to teach them at Rome and US. By the very fact few see and understand this truth even proves more so to me that it is INDEED a mystery concealed in the holy scriptures!
Brother, the Mystery is not future salvation for natural Israel as though salvation is through the bloodline which we know 100% that that is NOT SO~Per John 1:13.
God was FOREVER finished with the Jewish nation at the DEATH and RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ, they were NO LONGER needed, and had served their purpose of the antitype of the TRUE ISRAEL OF GOD. Everything under the OT worship were types and shadows of the TRUTH yet to be revealed. Once Christ came, we know what those things under the old represented~do I need to show this? The temple, the veil, etc., etc. and, YES, even the NATION~
1st Peter 2:4-9~"To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:"
Everything about Israel of old typified the ISRAEL OF GOD the true holy nation that ONLY offers up spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable and pleasing in God's sight. God ENDURED all those sacrifices under the OT and never took pleasure in them as he does from the TRUE Israel of God, be they living in the OT or NT, but the new is much better seeing we have the GREAT HIGH PRIEST sitting on God's right hand making intercession for us. All the types and shadows under the first Covenant are clearly seen under the New Covenant sealed and ratified by the blood of God's holy Son.
