Identity Theft

Many of us today are worried about someone stealing our identity.  Whether it is through online purchases, insurance, or some other manner in which someone would want to use your information to obtain something illegally.  There are companies who promise to secure your identity because we are too busy to take care of things ourselves.  However, there are many today who are stealing the identity of a group of people and they are doing it to obtain something illegally as well, yet they do not know they are doing so.

The Church, the Body of Christ, is a particular group of people who have decided that they are lost and in need of a savior.  They have chosen to accept the cross work of Christ as the payment of the penalty of their sins by grace through faith alone.  This is a small group of people throughout the world.  There are many "Christians" today who claim to saved but they are not because they have stolen the identity of the Nation of Israel.  They have decided to claim things that were only promised to the Nation of Israel, claiming to be "spiritual Israel" which is never a doctrine taught in scripture.

The truth remains, we are NOT Spiritual Israel.  Replacement Theology is false.

God is interested in us preaching about His grace that He put on display in the form of the death of Christ on the cross.  Today, God is forming the Church, the Body of Christ, to rule and reign in the heavenlies with Christ.  We are not to live on the earth but we are part of His plan to subdue the places of governmental authority in the heavenly places with Christ.  We are a completely different group of people.  God is not finished with Israel, they are part of His plan to subdue the places of governmental authority in the earthly places.  God's overall plan is to be the Most High God, the possessor of heaven and earth.  He is going to use two different groups of people to accomplish this.

Grace and Peace
