MembersRedemption – Between theory and practice

Redemption in the sense of salvation history is not always what we imagine.

The redemption from slavery in Egypt was brought about by genuine miracles of God and led by the greatest leader Israel ever had. Still, it took time.

We also must have patience. The Christian world wants to interpret everything prophetically. And prophecy is expected to be fulfilled immediately.

I wonder whether it has always been this way. Did the people in biblical times also seek to understand everything prophetically? What the Bible predicts will definitely come to pass. But if I wait for my interpretations and they don’t come true, then I’m disappointed. And as always, no one takes responsibility for false prophecies (see: Corona). Even Moses here and there misunderstood God’s plan for the redemption of the children of Israel. As is so often the case, theory and practice do not always coincide.

 

Messianic Jews

All Jews in the Promised Land are, in a sense, Messianic Jews. By this I mean that whether a Jew lives in the liberal coastal area around Tel Aviv or in the biblical heartland (ie. Judea and Samaria),...

  1. Disciple 1978 says:

    Being an Israeli apologist is understandable, and Israel does experience a national salvation that none of the nations do, but salvation is still only through the Jewish Messiah. (Acts 4:12) Israel’s restoration is a prophetic event, she was born in a day, (Is 66:8) and she will be saved in a day. (Zech 12:10)
    Commentators compare the rise of Assyria to the rise of Antichrist. It didn’t matter what alliances Israel made with world powers (superpowers?) they were going to be overwhelmed. Of course in the end times it’s not just Israel but all nations.
    The gospel being preached to every nation is an end-time marker. (Matt 24:14) The Lausanne conference expected this to happen by 2000. We, in the nations, are noticing whether our rulers are heeding the relevance of Israel, and God’s historic witness through her regarding holiness, morality and justice. By your definition the world is messianic and must decide whether to follow him.
