Paul calls the church the true circumcision. He calls the church the true Israel.

He calls Christ the "seed" to whom the promise was fulfilled, not Abraham's biological descendents.

It is not temporal land which is the fulfillment of the promise, but the eternal new Heavens and Earth which CHRIST has inheritd (and by adoption believers from all nations who are in Him).

You are quite wrong.

I suggest you spend a little more time with brother Paul.

There is a natural body, and a spiritual body. This applies to fleshly bodies, bodies terrestrial, bodies celestial and to bodies of people in the form of nations.

There is a natural Israel and there is a spiritual Israel. Belonging to one does not necessarily mean belonging to the other, just as the corrupt cannot put on incorruption.
