Exposing the Flaws in Replacement Theology
Most of the "prophets" critiqued on Endtime Prophets teach various forms of Replacement Theology, i.e., God is done with Israel and is now focused on the Church and the Church will receive all the promises originally meant for Isreal. This betrays a very serious misunderstanding of the whole plan of God for mankind from Genesis to Revelation.
If you will notice when you read their "thus sayeth the Lords" they often take Scriptures from the O.T. specifically meant for Israel and apply them to the Church rather than use Scriptures from the N.T. Why? Because the scriptures in the N.T. don't fit their theory and in fact speak against it (too much focus on Grace). Also Scriptures in the O.T. are often Works oriented---which is what these false prophets and false teachers are usually teaching to begin with.
The articles on this page will show that God's plan for Israel is still in force and how this theory can only lead to anit-semitism.
Following is a video that lists pastors that are teaching Replacement Theology (Christian Palestinism), i.e. Bill Hybel, Rick Warren, John Stott, Steven Anderson (Marching to Zion), Texe Marrs, Martin Luther, John Calvin, those teaching Covenant Theology like Hank Hanegraaff, R.C. Sproul Jr., and many others. It also lists church fathers (most of whom were Pro-Roman Catholics) that were teaching that the Church had replaced Israel. Hitler got his anti-semitic Theology from the Roman Catholic Church.
God will never give up on Israel
"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy."
"And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth" (Zechariah 14:12).
