New Covenant Israel is no longer physical (nor literal)!

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 11th October 2015 in Israel | Israel,New creation,born again,New Covenant
If you've read my previous two articles on Israel, then this will probably seem familiar. This is a combination of the previous two combined into one study, focussing more on who Israel is under the New Covenant rather than the geopolitical/war situation of the Middle East. So Who is Israel? No doubt what I'm about to say will cause some knee-jerk reactions, but to properly understand the New Covenant, we need to address the issue of who is Israel, Biblically speaking? Yes, there is a modern nation known as "Israel" now since 1948, but is that the same Israel of the Bible? The same Israel to whom God made his promises? If so, does that mean...
 

Support Israel? OK, which Israel?

...d. The New Covenant, under Jesus, presents an interesting tension of non-violence and justice. A tension which Paul continues in Romans 12 in the context of governing authorities and their role in the world, but I think this quote from John Stott sums it up quite well: “If my house is burglarized one night and I catch the thief, it may well be my duty to sit him down and give him something to eat and drink, while at the same time telephoning the police.” Then you have the Church Fathers, who for the first few centuries, had some things to say on violence and joining the military in general. They weren't all in total agreement; some were complete pac...
 

The Coming of Jesus: The Olivet Discourse – Part 2

...m and the New Covenant; to purify his people and bring judgement on those who refused him: the great and terrible day of the Lord!   "All the prophets and the law prophesied until John came" Tweet This! Not only is John the final prophet of the Old Covenant bringing the message that God was coming, as Malachi and other prophets of old wrote about, but this also signified that judgement was upon the people of Israel. The book of 2 Peter also makes a link to Malachi 3:2 where God is spoken of as being like a refiner’s fire when he comes during this time. This fits Peter’s theme when he writes about the Day of the Lord in 1 Peter 1:6-7 and 2 Peter 3:10. Yo...
 

Lent: Day 9 - Ignatius to the Philadelphians

...rned, the New Covenant was in full effect which is why his letters often remind the churches not to fall back into the old ways of Judaism. That is something that I think many Christians today still need reminding of as well. We have been set free in Christ (Acts 13:39; Rom 8:2; Rom 10:4; Gal 5:1), taken out from under the power of the old and are now under a New Law: the Law of Love/Christ (Rom 13:10; Gal 5:14; Gal 6:2). Go, therefore, in freedom.  ...
 

The Coming of Jesus: Coming on the clouds

...er in the New Covenant in its fullness along with a New age of Grace through and by the life, death, resurrection and forgiveness of Christ! Jesus's coming which he spoke of here was never to do with a physical return, but was always a prophetic reference to him visiting Jerusalem in judgement, just like God had done in previous generations, when he spoke to the people through prophets using this type of figurative language. When we can clearly see that all of these visitations by God in the Old Testament, using the same phrases and language that Jesus used, were prophetic and symbolic references to God using armies and other nations to bring war and destruc...
 

The Coming of Jesus: Daniel's 70 Weeks

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 16th June 2014 in Second Coming Series | Second Coming,Return of Christ,Return of Jesus,Preterism,Prophecy,Last Days,Left Behind,Part 1,Part one,Daniel,70 weeks
...Daniel's 70 Weeks   To fully understand Jesus's first, and indeed what is commonly called his "Second Coming," we need to understand the book of Daniel. This prophetic books give many details and glimpses into the future about coming kingdoms, rulers and above all, the Messiah. I'm going to be focussing on just one part of the book, chapter nine, often referred to as "Daniel's 70 Weeks". But just what is "Daniel's 70 Weeks" you might be asking as you read this. For those unfamiliar with Old Testament prophecy, it is a prophetic vision that Daniel was given from God, and interpreted by the angel Gabriel. You can read the prophecy in fu...
