Has God divorced Israel, cutting the nation off from His former promises?
Author, filmmaker and teacher Joel Richardson tackles the question in a sermon at Grace Church.
"The debate, the question concerns whether or not He has, in fact, divorced Israel and stopped working with Israel and shifted to a new plan or if His original plans and promises that surround Israel, that surround the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob," Richardson says. "Are they still ongoing? ... Half the church says yes. Half the church says no. What we believe about this issue has profound implications in terms of how we relate to one of the most significant unfolding controversies in the earth right now."
Richardson points out the dangerous—and sometimes deadly—ramifications of false theology regarding this topic. And it will only get worse.
"Before Jesus returns, this issue will come to a crescendo," he says.
