What are the Promises that seem to show a Glorious future for National Israel i.e Ezk 37:21-28 Is that really National Israel, the physical descendants of Abraham in view here ? We shall now observe this promise to Israel in Ezk 37:21-28 1.Its promised that God will gather the children of Israel from among the nations and bring them into their own land vs 21 2. God shall make them one nation vs 22 3. There will be one King over them, that is one Shepherd, David vs 22,24 4. They shall be cleansed from their transgressions vs 23 see Heb 8:12 5. They shall be the people of God, and God will be their God vs 23 see Heb 8:10 6. They shall have the Land given to Jacob forever vs 25 see Heb 11:8-9; Gen 17:8; 28:14; Lk 1:32-33 7. God will be in the midst of them forever vs 28 see Rev 21:22; 22:3 Now there is no doubt that these things are yet to be fulfilled, but again, to which Israel do they pertain ? We, have National Israel, the physical seed of Abraham, We Have Jesus Christ, The Seed of Abraham who is Called Israel, and we have all believers in Christ who are the seed of Abraham[Israel] spiritually Gal 3:29 ! Is National Israel in view here in Ezk 37: 21ff ? No, its not National Israel the Physical seed of Abraham because they were not the children of God and Promise according to Rom 9:8 8That 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. They are in fact contrasted to the Children of promise ! Also Matt 8:10-12 applies to them : 10When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 12But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Now, who are these Children of the kingdom that will be cast out and not partake of the Kingdom with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob [remember Ezk 37:25] The Children or sons of the kingdom is a Semitic term for National Israel, and Jesus is saying they lost their claim to this eternal kingdom, much like what is said here Matt 21:43 43Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. So when we combine these two together, we see no promise of National Israel being restored, but the Gentiles, the Spiritual seed of Abraham , those from the east and the west shall inherit the eternal kingdom with The Patriarchs instead.. Lets Comp Matt 8:11 with Ezk 37:21 Ezk 37:21 21And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: Matt 8:11 11And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. The Kingdom of Heaven is that Eternal land of Promise.. Also, God is no respecter of Persons Acts 10:34-35 34Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. This means God will not show any special favor to anyone because of the national origin, but to those who fear Him in every nation. National Israel is not a Holy Nation, they despised the Messiah, and the believers in Christ are the Holy Nation 1 Pet 2:9-10 9But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; 10Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. God has indicated that He will not show special favor to any nation by ethnicity Acts 10:34, and He is not going to change His Mind..
