Yes, the Bible verses I posted show that 2/3 of Israel will be cut off, but if you're trying to say that we shouldn't try to support Israel because
we don't know who the remaining 1/3 will be that's worthy of saving, I disagree.
We don't know who the wheat and the tares are so, in that respect to back you up:
First we will establish why Jesus spoke in parables. It was to confound the pharisees, and any other people who are not worthy.
10 And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?”
11 He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been
given. 12 For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from
him. 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14 And in them
the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says:
‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand,
And seeing you will see and not perceive;
15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have closed,
Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them.’
Now we come to the parable of the wheat and the tares.
24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his
enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27
So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to
them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while
you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to
the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
So, since we do not know what is tare and what is wheat we let them both grow together and the Master will decide at the harvest what is kept and what
is destroyed. So in regards to the 2/3 jews who are cut off and die and the remaining 1/3 we do not know and so we have to keep trying to reach them
until the harvest comes.
