    Know that those of the reformed/Covenant theology persuasion see that essentially all of the promises made in OT to national israel became grafted to Church today, as being "Spiritual Israel"...

    What verses support this, that God ONLY has the Church in His plans for today, and that the jewish people/nation forfeited all of their promised blessings for the future from the Lord?

    Eph. 2:14+ "For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one, and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, (15) by abolishing in His flesh the eminity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances that in Himself, He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace (16) and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross,.....(18) for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father..."

    For there to be a future for Jews separate from the Church, the reconcilation and peace must be undone. The "one new man" must be undone. The Law, which was abolished "in His flesh" must be restored.

    In short, for there to be a separate future for Jews and the church, the work of Jesus on the cross must be undone.

    That cannot happen.

    peace to you:praying:
