A Reminder for Believers: The Church is Not Israel

Since the beginning of the recent war started by Hamas against Israel, I have been blessed to see so many believers in Yeshua (Jesus) rise up to pray for and encourage Israel as she fights against her adversaries.

However, I also saw many people who proclaim to believe in Yeshua repeating the anti-Semitic tropes of replacement theology.

Some “believers” said and wrote somewhat hidden anti-Semitic things, such as, “While I pray for the people of the State of Israel during this conflict, I know that the real Israel is the church.” Others openly proclaimed that the church is the real Israel, or new Israel, while the nation Israel and the Jewish people today are the “synagogue of Satan.”

Under Fire in Israel, Rabbi Kirt Schneider Still Walking in Peace

During his time as a believer, Rabbi Kirt Schneider has learned to walk in the peace of God, regardless of his circumstances. Now that he’s in Israel—where there is mortal danger all around him—he says it’s a principle he needs to apply now more than ever.

Schneider and his wife, Cynthia, arrived in Israel three weeks ago. Like many others, they awoke to the sounds of sirens Saturday morning when the terrorist group, Hamas, unleashed an attack on Israel the likes of which hasn’t been seen in 50 years.

More than 700 Israelis have died since Saturday, and the attacks from Hamas and other terrorist groups are still taking place as of Monday morning.
