Dr. Tony Evans talks about how the chosen people fail to recognize the Messiah what the Lord plans to do about Israel celebrating 40 years of faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Abbott, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the urban alternative when Israel rejected Jesus to God on choose his chosen people will find out today as Dr. Evans talks about the relationship between Israel and the church. Let's join them. You cannot stand this story is story without the back story just to give a quick brief summary God created angels. Angel Lucifer rebelled one third of the angels with him, he was found of cosmic treason was prepared for Satan and his angels. But God decided rather than carry out the site right away. He would use the rebellion of Satan for his greater glory of God decided to do in the garden was placed. A lesser creature constitutionally inferior if he can work out. This left creature right it would overcome the creature that rebelled against the problem occurred when Satan tricked Adam producing the angelic conflict or the battle of the sea because Genesis 315 says that it will be the seed of the woman who would destroy the head of the serpent. While the seed of the serpent within the ratio of the woman balancing some of the Bible talks about offspring today. This battle of offsprings, which is why Cain killed Abel.

Satan wanted to get rid of the divine seed into nations. In Genesis chapter 11. All the nations of the world gathered together in rebellion against God at the Tower of Babel and the seed of the serpent was multiplying rapidly. That's when God went to the Chaldees and found a man named Abraham and he did something awesome. He made a covenant with Abraham.

The covenant is recorded in Genesis 12 Genesis 15 in Genesis 17. A covenant is a divinely created agreement. God told Abraham leave Chaldees and he is not going to do, make of you a great nation it already split up the nations of the world at the Tower of Babel by confusing the ability to communicate and now he was establishing a nation that would be called Israel. You cannot understand world history from God's point of view without understanding Israel and so today I want you to understand the relationship of Israel to the church if you want to understand what's happening in the world that you are reading about in the newspaper world in which you are living in today. Even your own personal what is all this God created a nation be called Israel and he gave them a job. He says throw you all the nations of the earth will be blessed through you, that will redeem humanity job Israel is to be a light to the nations. Your job is to send the word out about your great God is coming back to you as a nation represent it.

Maybe I will make you the greatest nation on earth, if you so maybe I will scatter you around. And so if you want to read the history of Israel. You read the history of gathering and scattering. Also, why is the son of the world. That's also why God deposited the belief that explains the rise of Iran which is Persia. The conflict in Iraq which is Babylon together. This is spoken up in the Scripture because it only walls around Israel. Read the Bible and all of this is continuing and finally Messiah comes the seed of the woman because there is no mandible, no human person, one of a virgin Jesus Christ not see the first thing Jesus said at 30 years old when he begins his preaching ministry is the kingdom of God is his first message. Once he got baptized by John and he stepped out of the podium. He says the kingdom of God has arrived on the king and bringing the king and on what you've been waiting for praying for looking for expecting. Matthew 21 he tells them in verse 42 Jesus said to them, you never read the Scriptures, the stone which the builders rejected this stone became the chief cornerstone. This came about from the Lord and it is that will save you the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing the fruit of God's kingdom is not working. The Basilica means rule so you can remove the kingdom from Israel, and on one hand it over to somebody else.

So Israel was rich in God's program, so to speak, because you said the kingdom of God and I'm ready to handle through you to everybody else besides me, all you gotta do is accept me as your Messiah. Now because of your rejection, the kingdom of God is removed and it will be transfer in Matthew 16, verses 18 and 19 Jesus is asked who do men say that I am Jesus says to you, verse 16.

I also say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of Hades will not all the power and I will give you the keys of the kingdom of the church. Whatever you bind on earth shall be a bit down in heaven. Whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven densely gave the church the keys to the kingdom that was give up his kingdom plan just because the original plated work. He just transferred the plan to the church. Stay with me that right?

Come back to church a is God no longer going to worry about Israel because they blew it. Romans chapter 11, he says, verse 25 I do not what you probably need to be uninformed of this mystery, I want to unfold this mystery. He goes on to say, so that you will not be wise in your own understanding so you'll make up stuff on your own.

Let me help you understand this mystery. What's this that a partial name has happened to Israel back to Israel in the New Testament is a partial hardening is when God shut you down, but it's partial not go they still believe in God, the God of the Old Testament, a partial piping. Israel wants his next word until this is a killer word. It's for a time, Israel has been because of the rejection that continues today. But there's coming a day when change when physical change when the fullness of the Gentiles has come in to watch this Israel is hard to me right now, but there is coming a time when they will no longer be hardened to make any says in the next bars and all Israel shall be saved.

The whole nation is will become crystal will be talking about that comes up in the tribulation.

But for right now. He says I'm tell the Gentiles all finished everybody who's not Jewish is agenda you may be a black Gentile of my Gentile Hispanic Gentiles in Indian Gentile, not Jewish or Gentile. He says Israel will be hardened until the final Gentile insane. What when the last Gentile becomes a Christian, God is going to reestablish his program would Israel, the rancher is when he removes Christians so we can get back to the original play went well the last Gentile debt say when the number Gentiles equals the number of angels that rebelled because it's all about the rebellion of angels, all about the rebellion of angels, so God is matching on. That's why we God created he named the place where Adam lived a well whether that name came from the Bible says the place that Lucifer used to live in God's replicating in history what was happening with the Angels, which is why we don't wrestle against flesh and blood, but we will forget how to follow the workforces in heavenly places. Angels are Angel driven over 1C when the last Gentile comes in. This is why the book so fascinating.

This is summarized in Daniel chapter 2.

The king had a nightmare on Elm Street dream and the king is terrified that this research because the six was extremely Daniel says okay what God wants to tell all the nations that woo woo Israel during the times of the Gentiles, and he walks through what secular history knows to be true before it, he walks through Babylon will be first. The Medo Persian Empire will be second Greece will be third, and role with 10 tolls will be for that's Wonnacott going to tick tock tick tock tick tock's. This is coming together in God's prophetic plan.

He says the kingdom Jesus will come when the 10 tolls that come together and then we'll hear more from Dr. Evans in a moment on what happens when the clock of history winds down. First I want to tell you, you can receive our current double resource offer.

Let's get back to today's lesson here is Dr. Evans had a question in Daniel 24, 27, Daniel says, when will these things be in a timing question because he was here all the stuff get all the stuff given headache with what is all the stuff can be.

Then God tells him about the 70 weeks of years.

The 70 weeks of years tells Daniel in the 70 weeks of years must sign you will be cut off now without getting into all the mathematical equations. If you break those down to the years it will bring you Jesus Christ. God is precise on the dates but God does something very interesting. He says that will be a break between the 69th and 70th week of years there will be a +66 and 70, 77 years of tribulation, but there's a gap. He stopped at six not before we get the 70 gap because God and to completed the blitz having anticipated. The blitz even though it was a mystery that will be a bit better know anything about the church but God anticipated the blitz so we split the week after 60 kn creating a gap before God begins with Israel's 70th week. The week of tribulation. God knew that that would be a parenthesis call the charge because the blood supply. I would be killed in the implementation of you today (we are the gap between week 69th and week 70.

I will take you I will give it to another, but I'm coming back to you. Tell the Gentile time is less than the become site you and I are not waiting for the tribulation were waiting for the rapture. I will build my church was involved. The church me up about Fellowship Church Is to operate the kingdom to remember. I give you the keys to the kingdom that was with Israel's jobless bum pause would Israel and I can look good and right now the project makes the group that is accepted me as the church, but the job of the church is the same job that I'm giving to the church, the kingdom that I'm taking away from Israel. So the church is not supposed to be about the church told me about the kingdom and variance is the problem of the church. The church is more concerned with the child in the kingdom.

So the problem is we can go to church and skip.not looking for church members looking for kingdom people in church. America has embassies all around the world, wherever every country in the world has American embassies, the recognized nation and in the sea is a little bit of America a long way from home.

Embassies are sovereign territory. They do not belong to the country there in the bones of the country that Stillwell using American Embassy in America, even though it is located in when you get in trouble if you oversee, you want to get across the enterprise, and investigate an American is no longer in the country in which the compound will Embassy is located. That's what an American Embassy, the laws of American not the laws of the country in which the embassy is located is headed by an American because all embassies bound to the homeland. They don't belong to the country.

There is what you are supposed to be visually and collectively is the representation of the kingdom. That's why Jesus prayer was thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Guess what they do and whatever God says you are not kingdom person unless you whatever God says that if you have the final decision-making power over your life and you want to understand that will contradict the land in which you are located commitment as to the laws of America, not the laws of the culture in which it is located in the church is that we let the world into the church.

We have taken them in while we praise God that's a contradiction has lots of problem when churches are endorsing same-sex marriage. That's why it's a problem with charges on abortion why it's a problem when churches are endorsing things that are clearly stated that the will of God because now you have a country you're in the country. The tragedy of the tragedy of it is when we stop being kingdom citizens in our lives and corporately average when we start being kingdom citizens lose the support of the King, Israel also supported God because of their rejection and where people worshiping God. Every Sunday we have no king support because there worshiping God in worldliness, not disciples that not kingdom citizens may wonder why prayers are being answered where there is no power because you are operating from the laws of the homeland logically got a two hour visit on Sunday.

That's why God says another service we get to the judgment seat of Christ to stand before the Lord and he's going to show you your take, and the tape will reveal whether you are a kingdom citizen churchgoer so you see Humana's wife says the job of Christians is to be like to just register a bike as a God representative the bindings of the bankruptcy is what God looks like God is the bank, or a bank loan officer you not just the teacher who God representative in the educational field education feels he's a God look like when God teaches a lesson for not just the Lord is God's representative in the Bar Association of the apostles is God look like God tries a case not just talking about total medical feces with God and God help you not just a homemaker who got represented in the home. The home sees what God looks like God raises the next generation representative of the kingdom your teams.

Dr. Evans will take an in-depth look at what the Bible has to say about this event, which may not be as far off as we think right now though is back with these final comments.

So in closing, Jesus in John 13 verse 33 Gaza got a go white male go away you can come with me to come in John 14 verses 1 to 3 weeks I go to prepare a place for you if I can prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am, you will be also.
