The Replacement Theology Deception

Updated on July 23, 2017

Disclaimer

This article is in no way affiliated with racial groups who have claimed the identity of Yashar'al, such as Black Hebrew Israelites, British/White Israelis, etc. There will be links on them towards the end. This is also not to imply that bloodline is the only thing that saves you, and it is not to say that anyone of any skin color, race, etc are cut off from scriptural truth and salvation (which I cover here). This is just to give a better examination on the relationship with the Almighty and his chosen people.

  • "Replacement theology (also known as supersessionism) essentially teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Adherents of replacement theology believe the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel."

A further examination of scripture will expound on the idea of his chosen people still being important, and how replacement theology it is a false doctrine.

Did the Jews Reject the Messiah?

The general idea and popular belief is that they did reject him. But the actual answer to that question is more complex then that, It is a yes and no answer. When someone claims the Jews rejected him, it is a very broad and ambiguous statement with no specifics given. How many Jews rejected him? Did all of the Jews reject him? Was there a few that rejected him? It leaves an assumption for people to believe that all of the Jews rejected him. Based on scripture alone these questions will be answered; which sect of Jews rejected him, and why they rejected him.


John 1 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

A majority of Christians will say that this verse proves replacement theology right. This is also taught in Islam and the doctrine of Tahrif. But if the reader will go to verse 12, it is made clear that some of his people did receive him and were given power to become the sons of the Most High and given power.

In John 8 31 we see Mashiach speaking directly to the Jews that believe in him, telling them, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed." His disciples were from his own people. His primary goal was for his own people to step out of the traditions of the Pharisees who taught against the law with their hypocritical ways and to set up the coming restoration of his people.

John 11 43-35 shows a group of Jews that believed in Yahusha after they saw him raising Lazarus from the dead. Throughout the book of John there are many instances of the Jews professing to believe in him. With that being said, what Jews rejected the Messiah?


John 20 1-18
John 20 1-18

In Luke 9 20-22, Mashiach asks Peter who he thinks he is. When he answers and calls him the Messiah, Yahushua tells him not to tell anyone and that he must suffer and be REJECTED by the elders, chief priests, and scribes. The Jews who rejected him are these sect of Jews. It was not every Jew, but some of them.

John 11 47-48 tells us that the chief priests and Pharisees were conspiring against him because he brought miracles that are against their agenda. If they did not stop him then the Romans would take their place and nation. The Romans already had them set up. If the people start believing in the Messiah, the Romans would not need them as leaders and would think that the Pharisees are not doing their job as they appointed them.

Matthew 27 11-26. Even the governor knew that Yahushua was innocent and did not teach anything against the Law. But the chief priests and elders accused him because of envy and asked for Barabbas to be released instead. Pilate knew that he was innocent, but he obeyed the constant cries of the elders and crucified him.

The Gentiles

I will say this again; This article is in no way affiliated with racial groups who have claimed the identity of Yashar'al, such as Black Hebrew Israelites, British/White Israelis, etc. There will be links on them towards the end. This is also not to imply that bloodline is the only thing that saves you, and it is not to say that anyone of any skin color, race, etc are cut off from scriptural truth and salvation (which I cover here). This is just to give a better examination on the relationship with the Almighty and his chosen people.

The word "gentile" is not used in any of the ancient manuscripts, simply because there was no such word in the Hebrew or Greek languages. It is in place of the Hebrew word "goy" (singular) and goyim (plural). Read the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible; "goy or goyim (singular or plural)", a foreign nation hence gentile ; heathen, nation, and people, or another.

The English word gentile stems from the Greek word "ethnos," or on a very few occasions "Hellen." Ethnos, which is the most frequent word used means: "race, i.e., tribe, specifically a non-Judean (notice not non-Jew, but non-Judean) tribe, by implication a heathen. Also translated gentile, heathen, nation, or people. It was never used to specify someone who did not come from the 12 Tribes.

Let's look at an example of how the word Hellen was translated to Gentile in John 7:35. ". ..will He (Yahushua) go to the dispersed among the Gentiles (the word Hellen was used here), and teach the Gentiles (again Hellen?)

Since the word Hellen refers to Greeks, you see how translators by changing the original meaning of the word, bring confusion. Many of our fundamental preachers teach only three classes of people on this earth: (1) Jews, (2) Gentiles, (3) Believers. This understanding comes from their interpretation of 1 Cor. 10:32, which says: "Give none offense, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, (here the word was Hellen nor to the church of YHWH." Who was Paul writing to? It was obviously the church at Corinth. Corinth was in Greece and three major classes of people lived there - Jews, Greeks, and believers. If he had been writing to the church at Rome, he would have said: "Give no offense, either to the Judeans, or to the Romans, or to the Christians." We cannot translate Hellen here as Gentile.

The Ten Lost Tribes had been joined by the majority of the House of Judah, since only the inhabitants of Jerusalem had stood against the Assyrians, and they were later taken into captivity in Babylon. When He had given His disciples the Great Commission found in Acts 1:6, they went to the "lost tribes of Yashar'al." Here is more clarification on how the words Greek and Gentile do not automatically mean someone who is not from the 12 Tribes.

  • Greek 1675. Hellénistés
  • Strong's Concordance
  • Hellénistés: a Hellenist (Greek-speaking Jew)Original Word: Ἑλληνιστής, ου, ὁ
  • Part of Speech: Noun, Masculine
  • Transliteration: Hellénistés
  • Phonetic Spelling: (hel-lay-nis-tace')
  • Short Definition: a Hellenist, Grecian Jew
  • Definition: a Hellenist, Grecian Jew, a Greek-speaking Jew, that is one who can speak Greek only and not Hebrew (or Aramaic).

So as we can see here, a whole new light is shed on the situation. Read here for more information on the split between the two kingdoms. (http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/the-two-kingdoms-of-israel). In case you are still not convinced, here is a scriptural example. Go to John 4. This is one of the accounts of the Messiah going to a "gentile" in the New Testament. She is indeed a Samaritan, but does she come from one of the 12 Tribes?

John 4 12

  • "Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?"

The context in this passage is referring to how the Jews (the Southern Kingdom) did not want to deal with their brethren. That is what the Messiah came to do. He came to fix this problem. The 12 Tribes were against one another, and he broke down the wall between them. Saying that he started going to other people and neglected his own for the most part is nothing short of anti-Semetism and a perversion of prophecy as Jeremiah 31 31-33 says this new covenant is for them. Now this does not mean that every instance of these words mean a Yashar'alite of another nation. But when you see it you must rightly divide the word and get the proper context.

Yahushua told Peter he would be a fisher of men. He said that in reference to the regathering of the 12 Tribes - check it out:

  • ‘“but, ‘Elohim lives who brought up the children of Yashar'al from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. (Jer 16:15)
  • “Behold, I will send for many fishermen,” says Elohim, “and they shall fish them and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. (Jer 16:16)
  • “For My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, nor is their iniquity hidden from My eyes. (Jer 16:17)
  • O Elohim, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction, The Gentiles shall come to You From the ends of the earth and say, “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, Worthlessness and unprofitable things.” (Jer 16:19)"

So when applied in proper context, the New Testament is about the gathering of the Northern and Southern Kingdoms back together. Such is the case for the Canaanite/Greek woman, the centurion and his servant, and Cornelius.

Jeremiah 31 31

  • "Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Yashar'al, and with the house of Judah:"

Hebrews 8 8

  • "For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Yashar'al and with the house of Judah:"

James 1 1

  • "James, a servant of Elohim and of the Lord Yahushua Ha Mashiach, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting."

Revelation 7 4-9

  • "And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Yashar'al."
  • "Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand."
  • "Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand."
  • "Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand."
  • "Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand."
  • "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;"


Many Early Christian commentators taught that the Old Covenant was fulfilled and replaced (superseded) by the New Covenant in the Messiah. For instance:

  • Justin Martyr (about 100 to 165): "For the true spiritual Israel ... are we who have been led to God through this crucified Christ."
  • Hippolytus of Rome (martyred 13 August 235): "[The Jews] have been darkened in the eyes of your soul with a darkness utter and everlasting."
  • Tertullian (c. 155 – c. 240 AD): “Who else, therefore, are understood but we, who, fully taught by the new law, observe these practices,—the old law being obliterated, the coming of whose abolition the action itself demonstrates ... Therefore, as we have shown above that the coming cessation of the old law and of the carnal circumcision was declared, so, too, the observance of the new law and the spiritual circumcision has shone out into the voluntary observances of peace.”

As we can see, the ones to blame for this erroneous doctrine is none other than the Roman Catholic Church, which has already been discussed as being abominable in a previous article.

The Most High has not forgotten his people. Their heritage, livelihood, and more importantly their identity still matter to this day. With that being said, there are some who are trying to deny the identity of his people. I will leave links at the end to expose them.

The children of Jacob have not been discarded. They are still his people. So all of you Christians out there who think replacement theology is true, you are digging your own grave. He didn't replace Israel with Gentiles.

Peace and blessings, and all praises to the Most High.

      Why should I support Christianity? It doesn't support the Bible.

      It's exactly the same in principle.

      "What's good for the goose is good for the gander" etc. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

      Me condemning something for being false is not persecution like others have done. All I am doing is denouncing Christianity for what it is: a pagan facade that covers up the real message of OT and NT.

      It's pointless to persecute either Jews or Christians. To do so is equally silly. Only tolerance wins the debate.

      Why make the same mistake you can see others making?

      Christianity has disrespected Mosaic ethics and has twisted the words of both the OT and NT prophets.

      What happened 2,000 years ago has very little at all to do with now.

      Jews can't be persecuted just as a convenient excuse by politically corrupt persons. Racist fools have been using such idiotic persecution for two millenniums.

      Jesus was first and foremost a Jew himself.

      Historically Rome executed Jesus then blamed the Jews. A few corrupt or jealous ancient Jewish leaders do not represent all Jews.

      Christianity could be seen as a Jewish sect and should be respected.
