Are The Jews Extinct?

God's covenant with Abraham was one of a promised seed. That from his multiplying fruit there would be generations for an everlasting covenant and He would be their God. Through Moses He promised this people, the Jews, a prophet shall I raise up unto you "of your brothers", a direct descendant of their seed, a deliverer, the Messiah, him shall you hear and believe or be destroyed from among the people. (Jews). God kept his promise but the Jews did not and rejected God, his word, the prophets, and finally the Christ. Now we, who have received Christ, are the heirs according to the promise for there is no more Jew! Now we are The Seed, the sacred spiritual seed of Abraham the Jews rejected. We are the new Israel and for a greater glory! For Christ is the end of the law, the Jew, from an everlasting covenant to eternal life! For if that which was done away, the law and the Jewish earthly seed, was glorious, how much more glorious the spiritual seed! We are God's children by birth, not adoption, and are His seed forever! We are the chosen ones and holy ones who are now the called out by God because of the Jews final rejection of Jesus Christ and their ultimate destruction from the face of the earth. Now they rest in the valley of bones, dead, vanished, no more in the land of the living, awaiting the last day when God promised the resurrection, when he breathes life into the dead bones of the of the Jews and their souls shall live. Then and only then shall God, not man, restore the Jews to their promised land of Israel and remain forever in Paradise on Earth. 

The first question is "What is a Jew?" * Technically it is short term for Judean, a tribe separated from Israel earlier on. For teaching purposes, a Jew is a lineal descendant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Offspring and heritage passed on from the male side, seed, with little or no inter marrying of other female descendents. A hybrid if you will, for the distinct purpose and foreknowledge of God to conceive and bear the coming Messiah, the Christ child, that would crush Satan and bring salvation unto the entire world. Gen 3;15. For you see, the Bible is about seed. From Genesis to Revelation. It represents life, the word and the genealogy of mankind and it's significance. 

The Hoax Of The Late Great Planet Earth

However today, the world view of what is a Jew is a hoax. When I hear a major evangelist or commentator emphasize the importance and significance of the Jews of today's Nation of Israel pertaining to Biblical prophecy and our  Christian heritage I have to cringe, knowing that they're ignorant of the Scriptures and basically selling a lie for profit and prestige. The books and movies that sell Israel fulfilling prophecy according to the latest fad or world event is a million dollar business. Just take John Haage for instance and how he sells the Christian world a bill of goods every week which the Nation of Jews has become his strongest theme of every teaching. His latest book of this fairytale religion he promoted as gospel truth, " Four Blood Moons: Something Is About To Change." ** was even news worthy among sectarian broadcasts. Who started this trend of a continued Christian-Jewish covenant now termed the Judeo- Christian Religion or ethic standard? The origin that I source that drove this widespread cultural phenomena into public awareness and as equivalent scientific truth as man made climate change was a book written in the late 60's by Hal Lindsay called "The Late Great Planet Earth." It sold millions of copies and Armageddon became a household word. He connected the dots or events between the 1947 man-made restoration of the "Jews" moving from all parts of the world to gather together and return to "their" original homeland of Israel and making the bold claim that this historic event was The Sign of the coming return of Christ. He claimed, with weak, giant leaps of assumptions and Biblical private interpretations that the Great Tribulation and end of the world would take place within that same generation that witnessed this event of the Jews returning and restoring the Nation of Israel. He is constantly changing his misrepresentation of what country or religion is going to conquer Israel to who the anti-christ is. He has since had to move the "illusional date line" several times to accommodate his theory. No matter to his devotees, this is now gospel and the Jews, God's chosen people, are well and alive in Israel and all the events of the world are revolved around what happens to them. Just ask Jack Van Empe, Hal Lindsay, John Haage, and every Sunday preacher and television evangelist. Watch Israel is their mantra. Their basic ignorance of what a Jew is perpetuates this myth. 

What Does The Bible Say 

The Jew of today is of man's making. It is an erroneous belief system that they have all come from a common source. There is no bloodline, lineage, offspring of any record written or verbal that will show any such connection. *** . There's no connection between Woody Allen and Benjamin Netanyahu or Barbara Streisand to Golda Meier. Nor is there any DNA evidence that differentiates them from any other human. As a matter of fact, the revelation heralded by the infamous Genome Project declared in 2000 there is no such thing as race. There's no such thing as a Semite. So how can you be anti-semitic? There's nothing in the blood that can enable to see under a microscope the difference between one human of color or distinction with the exception of male and female.**** 

I believe at one time there was a DNA distinction of a Jew as a hybrid race to impregnate Mary, bring the Son of God into the world by way of his miraculous birth, and distinguish him as a man without sin. Remember, he only took part of flesh and blood. Heb 2:14.  He took the flesh part of Mary but the soul life of the flesh is in the blood ( Lev 17:14) which comes from the seed of the male which in Jesus' case was from his father God (Holy Spirit). Therefore he was without sin. He did not have to be God to be without sin if you understand soul life and genetics. Today there is no purpose for a hybrid race and no purpose for the existence of the Jew for over 2000 years.  Therefore, after the Christ came, the Jews became extinct. 

Now let's look at some convincing Scriptures. Peter stood up and boldly confronted the persecuting Jews after healing the lame man at the gate of temple Beautiful. 

Acts 3:12-26

 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. But ye ( The Jews) denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from among the dead; whereof we are witnesses. And now, brethren... Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out,  ...until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear (to the point of believing) that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. (the Jews and their progeny)  Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, "And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed." Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
What a glorious last summation Peter witnessed to his fellow Jews knowing that this was that generation of Jews, even given the first opportunity that should've been received with such joy, actually became the last generation the prophets spoke of regarding their final destruction. And with many words did he witness and exhort saying " Save yourselves from this doomed generation!" Acts 2:20. This was it. It was nearing the final showdown before their destruction. Fortunately some believed. Most didn't. See The Second Entry of Jesus warning.
Heb 8:13
 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which will decay and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.  The Jews will now vanish away. This entire chapter is about the suspension of the old covenant and beginning of the new starting with Christ as the new high priest  in chapter 7.  Some commentators refer to this and chapter 7 as also the elimination of the Levitical priesthood line because of the current eternal priesthood of Christ. 
Acts 13:41
 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you. 
The following scripture adds to the condemnation and the final demise of the Jews.
1 Thess 2:14-16
For you brethren ( converted Jews) in Judea have become followers unlike your own countrymen (fellow unbelieving Jews) who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets and have persecuted us and they please not God and are contrary to all men, forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, their sins a piling up For the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost!!
How could God be any clearer? Jews destroyed, vanish, perish and the ultimate wrath, extinction! Yet we're expected to believe today's man-made myth rather than the word that the Jews still exist today and are occupying the land of Israel and other parts of the world as if they are still a chosen people. It's a lie! They're dead and gone. 

See the contrast and distinction in God's eyes:
1 Peter 2:9
But you ( believers in Christ)  are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of the darkness into his marvelous light...which in time past were not a distinct people but now you are the people of God. 

For a complete synopsis of the utter failure and condemnation Israel, read Stephen's last witness discourse to the Jews, before his martyrdom, (Acts 7) and God's continuation through Paul (Acts 13:16-41) where Paul picks up where Stephen was cut off. (A perfect illustration that it was God speaking through these men from obvious continuity of the narrative story). Paul concluding that "all who believe are justified from all things, from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses! " From that point on Paul witnessed the word to the Gentiles leaving the Jews to their foretold fate : " you judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, we turn to the gentile."  The Gentiles were filled with joy and glorified God. The Jews were filled with envy,  jealousy and losing their power became their strongest fear and driving force.

Acts 13:35; 17:
But when the Jews saw the multitudes they were filled with envy...but the Jews who believed not moved with envy and sought violence.

Romans 11.11
 ...through their fall salvation is come to the gentiles provoking them to jealousy.

The religious leaders were confounded and losing their power and control.

Acts 4:16-18; 5:17; ;26; 5:33; 8;1
What shall we do to these men...that it spread no further among the people let us threaten them; then the high priest rose up and the sect of the sadducees and were filled with indignation; then went the captain of the officers brought them without violence because they feared the people; they were cut to the heart and took counsel to kill them; at that time there was great persecution against the church: Saul breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went into the high priests and desired letters approving imprisoning them.

Even the converted Jews were so religious they sought to contain and use their power over the disciples.

Acts 11:1-2
And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him. ( After Peter witnessed the conversion of the house of Cornelius the Lord's revelation of the word over the world had begun). 
So why does the world and the Christian religious community not recognize the demise of the Jews 2000 years ago and believe the word regarding their extinction? Besides historical rewriting and confusion, it's basically from a misinterpretation from the book of Romans 10 and 11 ( written to the church only) where Paul states's "My heart's desire and prayer for Israel is that they might be saved." Yet he states in Thessalonians "the wrath of God has come unto them to the uttermost." Paul goes on to explain in Romans 10:
For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
So far doesn't sound like any inclusion.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
This is the most convincing conclusion that Christ was the end of the Jew. 
For Moses described the righteousness which is of the law, (for the Jew only) That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. (The old covenant no one could keep or obey). 
Here's the new formula, new covenant, for being "saved" as Paul stated was his heart for Israel.  
9. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Yet he reminds them of God's losing patients. But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
If they didn't obey Romans 10:9-10 they were not savable. No salvation would come to them period. Yet here is an unclear verse they hang their hat on:
Romans 11
I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Know you not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,  Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
So far it sounds like there is a way the Jews can survive by way of an intercession, or an intercessor. So here is the main verse all current theologians and pulpit pundits use to validate there is still a Jewish trace to the original Biblical source.
Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
They teach there was a remnant of Jews that survived. Somehow, through all of history there was a group that never intermarried or mixed their male seed and the offspring and lineage remained faithful to genealogy, God's law, had continued the line of priests and sacrifices and there was a prophet for each generation. No matter there was no written records or common ancestry. Remember, Paul said "an Israelite according to the seed of Abraham." So they completely mixed with other groups of all human backgrounds around the world for centuries yet were still Jews by seed?  Not only is that ridiculous but it is impossible! And then miraculously they all survived and multiplied to grow into millions of worldwide Jews ( under some false sense of persecution because of this deception) and managed to all come together and return to the land of Israel in 1947? 
So just who is the remnant Paul is speaking of in Romans? It's the saved among the Jews. The believers, those who became Christians from among the disbelieving Jews. That's the remnant. It's obvious because of the fact it was grace!
And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for;
Israel didn't obtain salvation and there's no Jewish remnant by seed, religion, or by keeping the law.   
 ...but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
Who is the election? We are! The Christians! Those who believed Romans 10;9-10! We are the remnant. Not the Jews. That's the whole point of salvation. To separate the physical from the spiritual, the law from grace, the truth from error or tradition! Just listen to what he goes on to say about the blind, ignorant Jews:
(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. You can say 'Unto this day" especially now! They remained blind and not hearing. So they vanished. There is no Jew today. It's impossible according to God's word. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompence unto them: 

In other words it's payback time. They lose their promise to the gentiles. The new race of spiritual beings called Christians. Followers of The Way. 
10Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? 

No, he gave them an out. A way. Jesus Christ! 

God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles,  for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. 

How might he save his fellow Jews by the flesh? Through Jesus Christ and believing in him! 

For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? 

Not only could they have gained righteousness by grace but eternal life! 

Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not high minded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.    

This does not mean lose your salvation. 
And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
Again, if they believe, they become a part of the results of salvation, that's the remnant. 
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
This fulness will culminate in the rapture, the gathering together. Not a resurrection which is for the Jews at a later time.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: 
When? He's talking about those Jews who will be at the resurrection. Ezekiel 37. Matt 24. In the last day John 11:24.  In a resurrection all are dead. At the rapture for Christians, (not the resurrection) some will be alive. It is then the Jews receive their promise and are restored by inheriting the Earth and living in a restored Paradise. A just reward for those who followed God's calling before Christ, in times past, but the ultimate promise was meant for us! A greater glory in a heavenly spiritual kingdom, to fully reign between heaven and Paradise on Earth. 

But for now it's the New Age of Grace under a different administration. In the meantime:
30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their ( the Jews) unbelief:  Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? ***** or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
Does being ignorant of God's righteousness and knowledge; being blinded with eyes that can't see; ears that cannot hear; diminishing; the fall of them; casting away from and broken off because of remaining in unbelief sound like a remnant you would want to be a part of? Why should there be any such remnant exist like this? They don't! We are the remnant, God's chosen and elect having grace, the righteousness of God, the sanctification, the redemption and the seed of Christ in us, the gift of holy spirit, inseparable and powerful unto eternal life. What a God and what a savior. We are the body and remnant of Christ!

This brings us finally to the book of Revelation which is established concretely in another teaching that those events do not even begin to take place until after the rapture or the quickening as I call it. This is the revelation not to the church but for the church;  most events pertain to those who endure through the tribulation and are resurrected in the end. They are not spiritual beings as we. But before then, it mentions early on The Synagogue of the Jews.

Revelation 2:9
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Unfortunately today's scholars have no clue what these verses refer to. Especially as they view these written to "churches of the past." That's impossible. There's no grace in these messages to them. These are future references. There certainly is a future of a people who will be rewarded for their "enduring." This is the sustainable called out to endure and resist the coming great tribulation of evil. In the context of this teaching, in reality, there are counterfeit Jews who are referred to as the synagogue of Satan in the future. They will continue to resist Christ, his followers and one can only imagine how evil and deceptive they must become in order for God to call them this. I didn't write the book. They killed the Lord Jesus Christ and these counterfeits will continue steal, kill and destroy.

In conclusion, this is not to negate all that God's called prophets, kings and common people did and suffered during the course and history that led up to obtaining the birth and salvation works of Christ. This is well magnified  throughout the word. The acts and writings of David. The heroics of Ruth and Rahab. Prophets like Jeremiah put in human dung. The heroes during Babylon captivity. The line of faith and immense suffering in Hebrews 11.  As it was said with Moses, Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt.  And all of these, though they gained [divine] approval through their faith, did not receive [the fulfillment of] what was promised, because God had us in mind and had something better for us, so that they [these men and women of authentic faith] would not be made perfect [that is, completed in Him] apart from us. Heb 11 AMP Version. 

We are the prefect, the initiated ones, called out to be the One body of Christ. For there is neither Jew, nor Greek, nor male or female, bond or free, for all are made One in Christ Jesus. 

*** In the Hebrew and Greek original Scriptures there are numerous records of detailed generations on the male side putting into concretion their exact heritage, source and consistency without error. Today, there exists no such records written or otherwise. Therefore, no such thing as a Jew by seed which is what a Jew is. See Gen 5; Luke 3.

***** We do because we have Christ, the spirit of the Lord, in us. 1st Corinthians 2:16 

The Jews will now vanish away.  Some commentators refer to this chapter as also the elimination of the Levitical priesthood line because of the current eternal priesthood of Christ. The word is full of the Jews envy, anger and fear of losing their power.
