No it doesn't.
I thought what was particularly interesting in this article is the sequence of events. Jesus tells those in the temple (mat. 23:39) "...you shall see Me no more till you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!'
Jesus then leaves the temple and begins teaching his disciples about the Tribulation. I believe if we are going to understand the words in Scripture we need to know where they were spoken, when they were spoken and who they were spoken to. In the temple Jesus said "till you say". If I understand this correctly it seems to me that He is telling them at one point they will say the words and when they do they will truly understand who He is. IOW, God is not done with Israel and if God is not done with Israel the church did not become a nation and replace it.
Thank you, wmfights, for your perseverance in getting Biblical truth to those who will read it and accept it. And when the non-Christians come on the thread to deny Christ and His word, know that you are doing something right or Satan would not be trying to silence you.
Thank you for the kind sentiment.
I suspect this topic is not understood by most Christians. A keyword search of Supersessionism, or Replacement Theology, will provide a lot of threads on the topic for those who wish to study it. I wish we could get more of our Reformed Brothers and Sisters to examine exactly where Supersessionism/Replacement Theology emerged from and what those theologians thought of Jews and Israel. I think they would be repulsed by what they find.
I would like to think that is true, but unfortunately once a person has denied and rejected Scripture so many times, his heart becomes hardened to the point where he simply is incapable of seeing the truth and understanding it.
There has been more than enough evidence presented on this forum to show that replacement theology is a demonic, evil, doctrine that has no validation in Scripture and for which God promises a curse. There has been more than enough evidence to prove that replacement theology has been the source of "Christian" persecution of the Jews since the early days of the church, and evidence has been provided that proves that the Nazis embraced replacement theology and used it as justification for their slaughter of six million of the Jewish people.
Scripture is the final authority on any subject in it, and the fact that four-fifths of the Bible is about Israel, not the Church, and the fact that Scripture is the supreme and last and only authority anyone needs to determine what is truth, and the fact that the Scripture gives minute detail of God's promises to the Jews and His future plans for them, leaves men with no excuse to hold onto the godless doctrine of replacement theology.
The fact that replacement theologists continue to deny and reject the Bible, even after having been proven wrong and even after having been made aware that Jesus Christ is the living Word of God, tells us what we need to know. No one who truly knows Christ as Savior will ever deny Him, and since God tells us that we will know people "by their fruits", we have to face the ugly, evil truth about replacement theology and those who continue to espouse it even after they know what the truth is.
