Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
The nation of Israel had ceased to make the Lord known. Jesus tells His disciples that the Jews, Israel, would lose the opportunity to be the channel that God used to get His gospel to the world. There would be a new nation.
That new nation was the church of Jesus Christ. The nation of Israel has been set aside for a brief period, a parenthesis in world history. God will once again use the Israelite nation. He will give the kingdom of God back to them but for the moment He is using the church.
The church is made up of born again people, both Jewish and Gentile. The middle wall of partition has been broken down. We are one people in the church and in Jesus.
Soon He will take us from this earth and the Tribulation period will begin. When it does He will restore the nation of Israel and use them.
Let’s not take lightly the privilege of being His servants to get the gospel to the world. We must do all in our power to fulfill His purpose for us and to bring honor and glory to Him!
