Dear Ami Isseroff

Replacement theology, my no, there are so many of these now days, I prefer what the Bible teaches. Replacement theology would have God dumping a chosen people, those chosen to bring all peoples to an understanding and relationship with God. No, my theology is Bible, both Old and New Covenant, and the promises today fulfilled and answered by God throught a new Covenant. It is certain the Christian community at one time believed that the Jews killed Christ, but as scripture now makes obvious, Christ said He died (instead) for the sins of all men, to say otherwise is to deny the grace by which sin is forgiven of the repentant.

As a Christian, I have a special place in my heart for a people said by God, because of their obedience there would be peoples of many nations who would come to Him. However I stand by my statement regarding the Talmud, as we both are aware the majority of religious in America today are Protestant Christian, and these would be unlikely to have studied the Talmud. Also as we both know, within the Talmud the saga's wrote their interpretation of Law and the Prophets, rumor having it some wrote their own opinion's on matters perhaps more an emotional reaction. Since the Talmud is a composite of interpretation from the Torah, I prefer the original (oral/written) Torah.

Restoration, reconstructionism, dominionism, dual covenant theology, these I find more an emotional responce of an individuals wants, and have very little to do with Gods plan and purposes. What I believe of the New heavens and New earth, also the New Jerusalem, is that indeed the remnant elect called the redeemed and chosen will all fit with quite comfortably and with ample room. I am confident of this because of the White Throne decree and the Lord saying "I am making everything new." Perhaps there is more elasticity in the New Promised Land, I know the trees are not like those I stole apples off as a kid.

Concerning the Sanctuary or Temple of the Lord, Old and New Testament both describe this Temple or Sanctuary, the first, second and third temples (the 3rd actually rebuilt) on earth are called but a shadow of the Sanctuary God created, and the original is in heaven. This is the Temple John said he did not see, because God and the Lamb are the Temple. God saying He would establish this Sanctuary that will be His residence where He will gather the elect to reside with Him forever.

The true Torah Jew refers to those who have not rejected the Torah (written/oral) of the Jew, as had the secular Zionists who promoted through Western Empires to establish a State of Israel. These than using religion and antisemitism as a political weapon for their own schemes and purposes. Of these the True Torah Jewish Rabbi accurately foretold that man cannot re-establish Israel, only God. Saying also that this action by man would only cause added suffering of the Jew, today proven prophetic in that no where else on earth does the Jew suffer more, than in the State of Israel.

Yes, the True Torah Jew (religious) traveled to Iran, to a meeting that questioned the accuracy of history regarding the Holocaust as being used by Zionists, and beforehand saying that so much proof exists documenting the Holocaust, their only purpose was to keep the Zionist's from further using this Jewish tragedy for political advantage. Also needing correction regarding what the Iran President is (documented) as saying, that he agreed with the Ayotollah Khomeini saying "The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time." Only liars and slanderer's quote "He wants to wipe Israel off the face of the map"...hi Hagee.

Last comment, since Christ ministered among the Jews, chose Jew's as disciples, sent the disciples (first) among the Jews, the Jews being the first Martyrs, the Jew's having been used to (splice) the Gentile into the Family of God, whose religion would you say Christianity belongs. Considering Abraham was neither Jew or Israeli, and is loosely called Hebrew, who are we all who believe in the one true God. This is all word games, and I haven't much use for it. My suggestion is for those who question, there are many book available that say they have answers, the (only) one I trust is the inspired word of God.
