The OP is correct. The physical nation of Israel is not the fulfillment of prophecy, and the Jewish people have not been the chosen people of God for
a loooong time. You cannot claim to be the chosen people of God while openly denying His Son at the same time.
6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: 7 neither, because they are the seed of
Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the
children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from
you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
Even Jesus, Himself, told them that they would eventually lose their status as the chosen people:
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
Most Christians nowadays are tricked into believing that they need to support the actual physical nation of Israel, when in fact, they are modern-day
Israel. Anybody who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Anybody who accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour are Israel. This is one
of the main reasons people need to open their Bibles and read them for themselves instead of trusting somebody else's opinion wholeheartedly.
There are some people who are totally, honestly sincere, and God does accept their sincerity and He winks at their ignorance. However, when they learn
the truth, they need to repent of what they used to think was true.
Listening to somebody who preaches with the intention of getting as much tax-free money as they can from their flock is not the way God intended for
us to learn about Him and His Son. We are to read for ourselves, to study and meditate upon His Word. It's sad to see so many people are so gung-ho
about defending the nation of Israel, all because they have no idea what their Bibles say. Satan is laughing in their faces, and they are clueless.
While true prophecy is being fulfilled left and right around the world, millions and millions of people are watching the Middle East, waiting for
those same prophecies to be fulfilled.
