The SATANIC Teaching of Replacement Theology: Does Your Church Teach This?

Most of us have heard of the false teaching called Replacement Theology. This article is for those who either have never heard of it, or have had this preached to them Sunday after Sunday and just figured that it was biblical.

I’m here to tell you – It’s a lie from the pit of hell.  This teaching has caused more Anti Semitism than any other false teaching regarding the Word of God!

Replacement Theology (RT), has been around for centuries. The term used by theologians is supersessionism. The church supersedes Israel. Theologians have cited the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD as proof that God was finished with the Jewish people.

It has always amazed me that churches who teach RT completely ignore some critically important words by the apostle Paul in Romans 11. I would HIGHLY recommend that you read all of Romans 11 (9 and 10 as well) but Romans 11 truly expresses why the Jews did not receive their Savior, and clearly shows that God is not done with His Chosen people.

For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:

“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
 For this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins.”

 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers.  For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.  For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience,  even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy.  For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all”  (Romans 11: 25-32 NKJV).

How could this be any clearer? God ordained that a blindness in part would happen to Israel, until all of the Gentiles who were to be saved would come into His Kingdom. It also states the gifts of and the calling of God are irrevocable.

God’s plan from the beginning was to offer salvation to the entire world. He used the Jewish people to bring His law to show His Holiness, and then through their lineage He would ultimately bring His Son to pay for all sin. What a merciful and loving God we serve!

There are two main schools of thought regarding RT:

Israel’s role as God’s Chosen was completed once Jesus came to earth (economic supersessionism).

Because of her disobedience, Israel forfeited her role as Chosen of God because of her rejection of Jesus as Messiah (punitive supersessionism).

Punitive supersessionism was clearly articulated by Martin Luther in his sermon: “On the Jews and Their Lies.”

“For such ruthless wrath of God is sufficient evidence that they [i.e., the Jewish people] assuredly have erred and gone astray. Even a child can comprehend this. For one dare not regard God as so cruel that he would punish his own people so long, so terrible, so unmercifully … Therefore this work of wrath is proof that the Jews, surely rejected by God, are no longer his people, and neither is he any longer their God. (“On the Jews and Their Lies,” Trans. Martin H. Bertram, in Luther’s Works [Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1971], p. 265).

How could a man used of God as was Martin Luther come to such a conclusion about the Jews? It is written that later in his life, Luther was convinced that he was called of God to save the Jews. When his efforts failed, he became enraged. In one night, in response to his anti-Semitic sermon, synagogues were burned to the ground and over 2000 Jews were slaughtered. Martin Luther was used by God in a mighty way in the Great Reformation, but alas he was merely a man. His teachings about Jews had a dramatic impact on the church in Germany for many years to come. Hitler was a great fan of Luther. He carried the sermon: “On the Jews and Their Lies” to every SS meeting.

RT is closely related to Reformed or Covenant Theology, which is associated with John Calvin. If you’ve noticed that your pastor does not speak or teach on eschatology (the study of End Times) it’s most likely that the leadership of your church adhere to amillennialism. A view of eschatology which views End Times prophecy as “spiritual” instead of literal. It’s a convenient way of avoiding the promises made to Israel in the Word. Since the proponents of RT believe that the church inherited the promises made to Israel, there is no need to teach that End Times prophecy is literal. The prophecies are viewed more as allegorical.

Satan is determined to lie and deceive mankind. He uses just a little bit of truth (Scripture) and then twists it for his purposes. He knows the Word better than any one of us. His motivation for memorizing God’s Word is to seek and destroy God’s people. He started in the Garden of Eden with Eve. He tried it against Jesus in the wilderness. Jesus always fought him (and shut him down) with pure Scripture.

God made a Covenant with Israel. I’ve read articles by Bible teachers who claim that Israel relinquished the promises made by God because of their rebellion. God cannot lie. He made the promises. It has nothing to do with how good or bad Israel is. It has everything to do with God and His faithfulness.

As a student in the synagogue I attended when I was a child, the history of my people saddened me. I learned of the persecution by the Catholic Church. I learned that no matter where we went, ultimately we were placed in ghettos with locked gates. We were HATED. I would ponder in my mind why—what did we do to warrant such hatred and oppression? It wasn’t until I was born- again that I realized why. It was Satan all along. He placed hatred in the hearts of men and women for the Jews.

But I never thought that it would be this extreme. I’m shocked as I read the news and see the world flying the swastika flag all across the globe. It literally makes me sick. But I know that all things must happen according to His plan. It took the extermination of 6 million of my people to bring about the establishment of the Jewish State of Israel in 1948 – a prophecy that many proponents of RT did not expect.

Israel is Israel. The church is the church. In the Old Testament, Israel was under the Law. Jesus brought us the Covenant of Grace. We are FREE in Him.

“For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17).

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.  For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.  Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:8-11).

Jesus was sent to earth for one reason—to die. It was His precious blood which cleansed the repentant sinner, and made him/her righteous in the eyes of the Father. Every Jew needs to come to the Father through Jesus Christ. There is no special arrangement between the Jewish people and God.

So, if you are in a church that believes that God has cast away His people—the Jews, please understand that what is being taught is not truth. Have you noticed that most of the RT denominations are vehemently anti-Israel? Are you starting to see that Satan’s plan to destroy God’s children has worked in most of the mainline churches? Here is a list of churches who believe the RT lie:

The Roman Catholic Church     (Actually is a Cult)

Southern Baptist Convention – (depends on leadership)

The United Methodist Church

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

National Baptist Convention of America, Inc

Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod

African Methodist Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church

Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America

African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church

United Church of Christ

Christian Churches and Churches of Christ, Joplin, Mo

Many non-denominational mega-churches

Please understand that in each of these denominations, it is possible to have a pastor who is a true shepherd under the Great Shepherd Jesus. But these denominations are known to adhere to the RT lie.

These churches have declared their hatred for Israel and are supporting Hamas. This is exactly what the devil wants to happen. But our Lord, being omniscient, is using all of this to fulfill His prophetic Word concerning Israel.

“And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it” (Zechariah 12:3).

From Arutz Sheva from Israel:

“These very liberal churches include Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians, Lutherans, and the United Church of Christ. They presently number about 16 million. Their membership and influence in the United States continue to decline. These churches’ rhetoric is usually outdone by an even harsher one of a small group of so-called ‘peace churches,’ including the Mennonites and Quakers.”

“Mainline churches claim many members from Congress. They represent America’s heartland and have adopted a range of resolutions hostile to Israel. They include calls for boycotts plus divestment and sanctions (BDS). Some are aimed at Israel, others focus on the ‘settlements.’ Several churches supported the hateful Kairos Palestine Document published in 2009 by some Palestinian Christians. There is also tourism to Israel under Palestinian auspices.

“BDS started with the passage of a resolution in 2004 at the Presbyterian Church (USA) calling for selective divestment of shares of American companies doing business in Israel. Long before that, the World Council of Churches (WCC) founded in 1948, aligned itself with ‘third world’ countries and thinking. This is an international umbrella group of mainline churches which claims denominational membership of 590 million people. It has frequently condemned Israel, yet never protested attempts by Israel’s neighbors and by terrorists to erase it from the map.

“Several of these churches also publish extremely anti-Israel educational materials. These are often the only ones members will view. The Methodists produced a study guide a few years ago authored by an apostate Jewish pastor. He admitted to hating Judaism. It featured illustrations of Israeli soldiers reminiscent of Nazi guards at a concentration camp.

“Theology is playing an increasing role in mainline churches’ anti-Israel activity. It began with the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center and its head, Dr. Naim Ateek. Many liberal churches have partnered with Sabeel. Ateek used crucifixion imagery in his Easter message of 2001: ‘It seems to many of us that Jesus is on the cross again with thousands of crucified Palestinians around him.’

” This reintroduces the ancient murderous Christian charge of deicide against the Jews. Ateek and others deny that the Bible speaks of any covenant of land with the Jews. This is a renewal of the replacement theology and supersessionism, and is extremely dangerous for Jews around the world, especially at a time of rising anti-Semitism.

“Palestinian influences in anti-Israel hate mongering is huge. They have sent teams of Palestinian Christians around the U.S for a decade, tugging at Christian heartstrings with emotional tales of woe. They are more effective than Palestinian Muslims, who don’t come as ‘brothers.’

“Still, there are surprises. In 2012, several denominations substituted positive investment resolutions in place of divestment. In some cases, votes that looked like they were heading in the anti-Israel direction were saved by impassioned speeches by pastors who spoke about the impact such a resolution would have on Jewish-Christian friendships and partnerships in their churches.

“The actions of these mainline churches have poisoned the well of Christian-Jewish dialogue. Jews entered the dialogue, which has been fruitful at times, on the basis of assurances that Christian partners left contempt for Jews and Judaism behind, and had made serious attempts to understand what was important to Jews. The way in which these churches treat Israel shows that neither is true.”  – source

I ask you this: Even if you have been in one church for years, if they are teaching a lie, would it not be the right thing to do to leave and attempt to find a gathering of brothers and sisters in Christ who believe the whole Word of God?

 “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you  And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing” (Genesis 12:3).

And a word to those seeking a place to worship:

ASK QUESTIONS. You have a right to know how leadership feels about very important issues – whether they believe the whole Word of God or choose to add or take away from God’s Holy Word.

How Can I Be Saved?

Shalom b’Yeshua

  1. My Friend in Christ: I am a KJV translation only believer and never had a problem believing that the Jews are NOT replaced by the church. Please don’t be angry. When you read the other translations, please compare to KJV. You will see many leave out or add to the scriptures. I Love U in Christ.

      1. You need to stand on something, the KJV, or one other . You cannot use them all. because Our God’s word is not divided. Choose one as your rock, that is your Right . The KJV is 400year old english translation that is tried and true. Please be careful which rock you choose. Love in Jesus Christ.

    1. Actually, the Geneva Bible of 1560 is the first English translation, a good fifty years before King James authorized a new one, we use today. The only reason the King had another one made was to get rid of the notes at the bottom of each page, critical of the Catholic Church, as the Geneva bible was from protestants (meaning protesters of the Catholic faith).
      Thus, very few differences between them, aside from spelling. The Geneva bible was considered the best, and thus the one our ancestors brought here from England, when landing at Plymouth Rock.
      The Geneva folks were the first to put scripture in chapter and verse! Considered the Cadillac of bibles!

    I hold to the KJV it is the true word of God you have to watch some other translations leave out portions and some change the meaning don’t think you really had to say we need to get over ourselves, that didn’t come from Christ, but enjoy reading your articles

    1. I want to apologize and ask forgiveness for my snarky comment about KJV only people. I have deleted that from the article. Thank you for your honesty! May God bless you.

  5. The apostasy in the church has, in the last 10 years become very overt…sad to say. Yet, this is what our Lord said will happen as it gets closer to the end times…
    Notice, true apostasy occurs in the hearts of leaders who once knew the Truth, and then because of money, recognition,…evil entered into their hearts they deliberately turn away from the Truth. Sad, because they then lead many into believing the satanic lies they teach.
    Every few weeks I re-read through the entire Bible. There are not many pages in my Bible(s) where I have not written “More Proof – No Replacement Theology.” I do this, thinking, hoping, that when I die someone will find my Bible(s) and begin to read and study them. Surely, the Day of The Lord is not far off. But, then, it will be too late for most people to come to The Lord. So, I pray that there is more time for people to come to faith in the Lord, and for 1000’s × 1000’s to be given dreams and visions of Jesus and to hunger to know Him.
    Did y’all know that Iran is the fastest growing church in the world now? Awesome. In the midst of great persecution comes great and strong church growth. Blessings

  6. Good word, as Jesus “first” came to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Matthew 15:21-24 , yet they rejected him “Nationally”, he then went to the Gentile. Yet not exclusively to the Gentile, but to both Jew and Gentile as, Peter went to the Jews and Paul to the Gentile, as apostle of Gentiles, Romans 12:13.
    One must remember that only to the Jews were given the “oracles of God”, not to anyone else! They were chosen to bring forth salvation to the world. “For God so loved the (world) that he sent his son….” John 3:16 and “he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole (world).”1 John 2:2
    This means God came for all, Jews are not only part of all, but a very important part, “For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the (world), what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?” Romans 11:15. This means they will turn to Christ and “so all Israel shall be saved” Romans 11:26.
    “So” here meaning “in this way”as it also is used in John 3:16. For God “in this way” loved the world (both Jew and Gentile) that whosoever believes in Christ (the anointed) shall be saved. There is no other way but “in this way”, ”by grace, through faith”, Ephesians 2:8.
    How can it be a “Replacement Theology”, the order is in this wise; “salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16. As the Jew is first, all others second! In other words; “salvation is of the Jews” John 4:22, and always will be, according to Jesus own words!
    But thanks be to God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, “For through him we both (Jew and Gentile) have access in one Spirit to the Father.”Ephesians 2:18.
    Is God through with Israel? Hardly!

  7. I understand your frustrations, I do not follow the churches anymore but walk on my own. I teach the Spirit of the Word I do not preach to the flesh. I am understand your frustration with over who reads what Bible me I prefer the KJV, no matter. We are to be adopted into the olive tree of the Jewish people in the land of Judea. I understand all that and more. Look forward to your other posts a brother that found his way back to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Amen.

  8. God did make a covenant with Israel. The Jews spent centuries breaking this covenant in every way imaginable. He came to his own. His own received him not. Jesus said he that believeth not will be damned. To think God is going to spare the nation of the fake Jews of Revelation, the children of Satan…well that is delusional. God is no respector of persons and can raise up children of Abraham from rocks.

    Satan deceiveth the whole world. Israel are murderers. Zionists denying Christ. The Christian Church has become the filthy whore of Babylon catering to pedophiles. This is all laid out in NT scripture.

    1. What Paul is actually saying is that the disobedient Jews were broken off of Abraham and the faithful gentiles are grafted into Abraham. But here is the rest of the story;

      6 just as David also speaks of the blessing on the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
      9 Is this blessing then on the circumcised, or on the uncircumcised also? For we say, “FAITH WAS CREDITED TO ABRAHAM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.” 10 How then was it credited? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised; 11 and he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while uncircumcised, so that he might be the father of all who believe without being circumcised, that righteousness might be credited to them, 12 and the father of circumcision to those who not only are of the circumcision, but who also follow in the steps of the (faith) of our father Abraham which he had while uncircumcised.
      13 For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if those who are of the Law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise is nullified; 15 for the Law brings about wrath, but where there is no law, there also is no violation.
      16 For this reason it is by faith, in order that it may be in accordance with grace (Ephesians 2:8,9), so that the promise will be guaranteed to (all) the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us (all), ….” Romans 4:6-16 NASB.
      Thus, “For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they (potentially all Israel) also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.” Romans 11:21-23.
      This is speaking of even the true natural branches (Israel), yet they (And so all Israel shall be saved) can be “grafted back in” if they come to this faith, for true, without faith it is impossible to please God, as Abraham did through faith! For true, God does not respect personalities, only the faith of such!
      True, the Devil deceives the whole world, Rev. 12:9, but remember that Christ death on the cross (yes, the death the Jews caused, Acts 2:36, 3:13, 5:52,7:52 but remember since it was for the whole world he died for, it was in reality, the whole world that killed him ) it was through this death that Christ “.. destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;” Hebrews 2:14. Thus potentially not only all Israel shall be saved, but potentially, the whole world, 1 John 2:2.
      Do you really know who is a murderer, anyone not in Christ, do you know who is a pedophile, anyone not born again, in Christ, Romans 5:12. Affiliation, membership, has nothing to do with it (Matthew 13:25-30), but being a new creature in Christ does, 1 Corinthians 5:17.This is laid out in the word.

      1. Well, Thomas…that certainly was a jumbled mess to read. Excellent cut & paste. Yes. I know droves of heretics parading as Christians under steeples every Sunday who live secret lives of vampiric pedophiles.

        I will have to say I also know droves of ignorant Xtian sheep who will issue false care bear rebukes on a true Hebrew disciple of Messiah. Just drop a twenty in the plate and have another pork sandwich. Things will be ok.

  9. And as for the black robed long haired orthodox Jews controlling Israel…they are the children of the devil Jesus rebuked in the Gospel of John. The fake Jews described in Revelation. Yall keep on that Christian-Judeo train. You wont like it’s final destination.
