John,

You make a lot of statements about what America does, has done, or hasn't done: I don't have the time to verify all of them. But I know a little of what the Word of God says and I also know that, according to statistics, there are more Jews living in the US than anywhere else on earth; even Israel. They have been allowed to live here, largely unmolested, and to prosper greatly. That should say something about how SOME of us treat the Jews. I can't speak for everyone, but as for myself and most of the Christians I rub shoulders with, we believe in that mindset.

Replacement theology has nothing to do with Obama's handling of matters in the Middle East or with his policies regarding Muslim terrorists.

 

Prior to Obama, most American presidents since the modern inception of Israel have held to beliefs which included the idea Israel is the land of the Jews, and most held to a view that more Jews would fill Israel, America should support Israel, and end-time events would revolve around Israel. That's not replacement theology.

No, but it has something to do with some of the attitudes, about Israel, expressed by some in this thread entitled: "Former President Jimmy Carter Blames Israel......."

 

I personally believe that one of the reasons (if not the main reason) the US is a "superpower", and the "UK" isn't is because of how our country has treated Israel. The reason being that they are still God''s people and He has not somehow "replaced" them with the church. . We, who are saved are indeed "children of Abraham" spiritually, but those Jews are still the "seed" of Abraham and that land over there is still promised to them "for ever" by the Creator. Those Arabs can launch all the rockets they want, but they ain't getting it and they're not going to "push them into the sea" either. They can blow themselves up in the name of God, murdering the innocent, expecting Paradise, but all those who do will continue to open their eyes in Hell. By contrast, the "IDF" could have already wiped out the "Palestinians" in Gaza and the West Bank and destroyed that "Dome of the Rock" if they were the thugs people want to make them out to be. Yes, Israelis are sinners in need of a savior, just like you and I and some have committed atrocities no doubt, but they are not "God's people" by their own merits; it's all according to the grace, providence and promises of God. He keeps His promises.

 

One day, the King of Glory is going to stand upon the Mount of Olives and He's going to walk through the Eastern Gate of the physical city of Jerusalem in victory and somewhere during the process, that ungodly mosque is going to be gone. He's not coming to "Mecca", or to the the Vatican': He's coming to Zion. Replacement theology can have a lot to do with whether we condone or condemn Obama's actions toward Israel. I, for one, will condemn any actions He might take against, or is in the least unfavorable to God's people.
