John UK...

Different analogy. Gentiles weren’t even a part of the picture yet either.

It really doesn’t matter what I wish because God has grafted Gentiles into the olive tree regardless of how I would feel about it. Now if you ask me, I thank God for it!

“As regards the gospel, they are enemies for your sake. But as regards election, they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:28-29‬

Please understand, this is not talking about the church but Israel who is beloved for the sake of their forefathers. Why?! Because the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable. Capeesh?

Gentiles being grafted into the cultivated olive tree tells you that they are different than the cultivated olive tree! They are just grafted into the cultivated olive tree being part of a wild olive tree. They receive the same nourishment, while remaining different. The promises of God that the Gentiles may receive are dependent on God offering them to Israel.

Yes, we are all one in Christ. However:

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:16‬

The gospel is to the Jews first.

“There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭2:9-10‬

The Jewish people are prioritized over Gentlis. The reason Gentiles are saved is because they have been grafted into the cultivated Jewish olive tree.

“And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:2‬

To answer your question, the new Jerusalem.

It is God’s covenant with Abraham and not with John UK.

If God is through with the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, maybe you could let Satan know so he doesn’t have them surrounded by the armies of the world in the Battle of Armageddon. Maybe you should tell Jesus so He doesn’t waste His time coming again to save them because they are not His people!

You do realize that Galatians 4 is symbolic?!

“which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar—”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭4:24‬

Furthermore, it says in Hebrews that Abraham didn’t receive the promise...yet. He will though!

“And God gave him no inheritance in it, not even enough to set his foot on. But even when Abraham had no child, He promised to give it to him for a possession, and to his descendants after him.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭7:5‬

God has promised to do so.

“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.

These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:8, 13‬

The promise is to Abraham and his seed. Anyone who believes is an heir to the promises of God. To the Jew first and then to the Gentiles because we have all been grafted into the promises of Israel.

1) Everlasting covenant?

“The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac, And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel for an everlasting covenant, Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan As the allotment of your inheritance,”

And say, “Save us, O God of our salvation; Gather us together, and deliver us from the Gentiles, To give thanks to Your holy name, To triumph in Your praise.””
‭‭I Chronicles‬ ‭16:16-18, 35‬

The land is a promised inheritance to Israel and will be received fully when the remenant of Israel calls out to Jesus to save them physically from the armies of the Gentiles which will surround her and be in process of destroying her people. Then Jesus will return!

2) Retire it?

Hardly, it will be fulfilled!

3) New Covenant?

“In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭8:13‬

However, God’s promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is everlasting. It is not the old covenant with Israel whereby they practice the sacrificial Mosaic Law.

In particular to the Abrahamic Covenant, God has made a promise that Israel will receive a portion of land. Not all of Abraham’s descendants but only through the lineage of Jacob. Not because they are special, but because of His covenant with Abraham and it I was done this way as a means to bring the offer of salvation to the whole world. There will always only be only one way to be saved and that is through faith in Jesus Christ, as long as that offer stands.

In verse 13 Jesus is talking to the Pharisees. Then He says something to those who believe Him, not the Pharisees.

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.””
‭‭John‬ ‭8:31-32‬

Then, I believe, the Pharisees chime back in.

“They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?””
‭‭John‬ ‭8:33‬

Then Jesus acknowledges that they are Abraham’s descendants. Although, that does not make them physically the children of the promise. Ishmael was a descendant, but the promise came through Isaac.

So there is no reason to “see” a contradiction.

It’s not good to tell Jews that the only way for them to be saved is through faith in Jesus Christ?

It says they believed, so I don’t know if Jesus then turns and addresses a different group of Jews or if a different set of Jews inserted themselves into the conversation. At any rate, I believe that some descendants of Abraham have been cut off from the cultivated olive tree, just like the Gentiles will be in the future. However, in the end all Israel will be saved and that will result in the resurrection from the dead for all who believed.

Also, they could have been offspring but not through the child of promise who was Isaac. At any rate, it doesn’t show that God is finished with His everlasting covenant to Israel.

Are you talking about those Jews there who believed?

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.”
‭‭John‬ ‭8:31‬

You never finished your point.

It’s all a variation of replacement theology. You are of the ilk that God didn’t actually replace Israel because Israel was always the church. Same difference! God didn’t bring the children of the church out of Israel. He didn’t let the church cross over into the Promosed Land. The church consist of those who are now part of the one body through baptism into Christ. That wasn’t even possible before Pentecost, but I don’t suppose that will stop you!

Dr. Tim...

Fact: Jesus did not have offspring. End of story. Jesus is the Son of God. Those in Christ are also heirs with Him. Your proof-text says:

“Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:14‬

Those aren’t the Son’s children. Rather the Son becomes like the children so that He might save them. Therefore, Jesus has no physical or spiritual offspring. Only brethren.

John UK...

The Abrahamic Covenant is nonconditional for all Israel will be saved. Though they are unfaithful, God remains faithful! You don’t support the cultivated olive tree, it supports you. So if God is finished with Israel, then even the church has no hope. The promises were not made to the Gentiles, correct? Yes!

Your quickening is preticated off of you being in Christ. It is when one believes that they are then placed in Christ and not before they believe, so they can’t be quickened prior to faith. You can’t make yourself born again, yet there is something you can do to become born again. That is believe!

All of that stuff about God having to magically make Abram spiritually alive, so that Abram could hear God’s voice and respond to it is extra biblical, made-up nonsense.

Yes, God has not forgotten Hos everlasting covenant. God has not forgotten it. The covenant wasn’t about mutilating his wee wee! Although Abraham followed through with that as a sign. The covenant was what God was going to do for Abraham.

“Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him.”
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭12:7‬

It’s about what God will do for Abraham and his descendants. Abraham didn’t make the covenant and neither could he break it. Just like how there is nothing you can do to earn your salvation, there is nothing you can do to lose your salvation. That is because it is all about what God does and has promised.

Ah, thanks. FYI, the children in verse 13 are NOT Jesus’ children. He didn’t have any offspring. Although, He is the firstborn among many brethren.

Lurker and John UK...

“do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:18‬

The promises given to the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel are not in affect because of the church. The promises were not given to the church and passed on to Israel, but rather they were given to Abraham and passed onto the church

“And again: “I will put My trust in Him.” And again: “Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.” Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:13-14‬

There! Are you happy? What do you think that means?! I don’t know if I am to stupid to understand doctor speak or if you are the type of doctor who would amputate my left foot when all I needed was a cast on my right one?

Lurker and John UK...

Gentiles have been grafted into the promises that God made to Israel, so if God has forgotten His everlasting covenant that He made to them, we are in big trouble! The text you gave me, Lurker, reminds me of the part of Israel which was cut off from the cultivated olive tree. That doesn’t mean that God is through with Israel because He has promised to once again graft them back in! You two remind me of those who boast against Israel:

“do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you. You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand

Dr Tim...

No, but Hebrews 2:9-13 does! So why would you be quoting that to me? I said Jesus didn’t have any offspring and you quote me this?

“For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying: “I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.””
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:11-12‬

Which is really beside the point, isn’t it? I said “offspring” which is understood to be physical descendants which Jesus Christ obviously never had! He does have physical and spiritual brethren, but offspring and brethren as said per Hebrews 2 are two different things. I’m afraid you are confused.

Jesus didn’t have any physical descendants, did He? No! Are you messing with me? Also, there is a difference between the word “offspring” and “siblings” or brothers.

Thanks and I would like to recommend to you to learn the difference between the different covenants.

“He remembers his covenant forever, the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations, the covenant that he made with Abraham, his sworn promise to Isaac, which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant,”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭105:8-10‬

His covenant to Abraham is a everlasting covenant and in case you forget because God has not:

“I ask, then, has God rejected his people? By no means! For I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin. God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew....”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:1-2‬

Now the covenant obviously hasn’t been forgotten by God, so what gives?

“For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead?”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:15‬

It’s just a matter of them all believing.

“for the Lord will carry out his sentence upon the earth fully and without delay."”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭9:28‬

“And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.”
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭17:7‬

Notice the word “their”? That is a plural term. It isn’t talking about One person. Did Jesus have any offspring? Of course not! I never said God took a break and forgot His covenant with Israel. It has always been everlasting from the day God made His covenant with Abraham. It’s called the Abrahamic Covenant but it is actually God’s covenant to Abraham, Isaac, and Israel.
