Faith in Prophecy as Written

Post by angelaglass » Fri Sep 09, 2016 8:38 pm

Christendom began teaching that Israel was irrelevant to the fulfillment of prophecy, and that the promises would be fulfilled 'in the church' instead.

I believe Christendom came to this doctrine out of necessity from the human perspective: "Without a nation of Israel how could prophecies be fulfilled?"
Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor she brought forth her children. — Isaiah 66:8
Then in 1948 Israel was reborn as a nation. But this didn't seem to change Christendom's perspective of the fulfillment of prophecy.

It seems the end result of Christendom's doctrine that 'the church' is Israel comes down to no one believing the 144,000 are literal Israelites.

I'm curious if there are Christian's out there who, like me, believe Israel is still the fulfillment of prophecy.
