What is often missed is the fact that there are two Israels in the Bible. There is Israel who is free from sin and seeks the heavenly Jerusalem which is from above and there is the earthly Jerusalem which seeks to live under the Law. To understand eschatology one must understand this difference.
Great Sermon! If end times folk would read the historical interpretations of Genesis from Ancient Orthodox and Catholic sources, this confusion about Revelation would not be nearly as confusing. People reinvent the wheel.

Great Sermon! This is truly an insightful, encouraging, and much needed message for Christians who think that they are not viewed as being anti-semitic and who believe that our government will keep them safe.

True Jews Thank you for your kind comments. The true Jews are just that, JEWS. This gets lost in the replacement theology crowd. However, it is also lost in the Israel NOW crowd who see this nation as the renewed Israel of End Times. Both extremists are incorrect, in my view. If God does not keep faith with Jews then how can we expect He will keep faith with us? This means that He is not faithful and therefore is not God! The current Israel was founded, and still governed, by atheists, socialists, terrorists who will attack everyone who disagrees with them. They attacked the USS Liberty to protect their surprise attack 1967. The upshot is: follow the Scriptures and not tradition or current desires. Anyway, this is a minority view rejected by most since it violates their particular orthodoxy views.
JUDAISM AND ESCHATOLOGY A brief look at role of Judaism in the world and end-time events. Who the true spiritual Jews are, and no, we're not talking replacement theology.
