Israel Moments 1-10
By Pastor Steven L Anderson
Israel Moment #1- Christians are citizens of Israel
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe Arizona, and this is the first in a series of short videos on Israel, that are going to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that the Jews are not God’s chosen people in the New Testament. But that rather we as believers, we as Christians are God’s chosen people. And it doesn’t matter what nationality we’re of. We’re God’s people if we believe in Jesus Christ.
In the course of these videos we will also prove that the modern day nation of Israel over in the Middle East, is a complete fraud. Frankly, the physical nation of Israel has been replaced in the New Testament by a spiritual nation that is made up of all believers. Now, I could put all this into one long video that would be several hours long, and have hundreds of scriptures that we are going to use from the Bible to teach this, but rather I am going to put out just a series of short videos, that just give you one digestible truth at a time, line upon line, precept upon precept.
Today we are going to focus on Ephesians Chapter 2. We will just do one scripture per video that proves these truths. Let’s start in Ephesians chapter 2, verse 11. The Bible reads “Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
So right there the Bible is speaking unto the gentiles saying that when they were without Christ, he says “you are aliens unto Israel, you are strangers of the commonwealth of Israel, or the nation of Israel”. But he says “now you have been made nigh by the blood of Christ. Listen to verse 19. It says Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God”. So according to this scripture, we as believers are fellowcitizens of Israel. He says that we were in time past foreigners, we used to be aliens and strangers of the nation of Israel. But now we have been made nigh unto Israel by the blood of Christ. And he says we are no longer strangers. We are no longer foreigners, but that we are fellow citizens of Israel.
According to this scripture, I am a citizen of Israel. You are a citizen of Israel if you are a saved, born again child of God. This alone is a powerful scripture that teaches that we in the New Testament are the chosen people of God.
Stick around for the rest of these videos; there are so many more powerful scriptures that teach this. This is just one among many. If you watch all these videos, I guarantee that it will be proven to you over and over again that the unbelieving Jews today are under the wrath of God. They are NOT God’s chosen people whatsoever, but that we as believers have replaced them as the people of God, as the Holy Nation.

Israel Moment #2- So called “Jews” are not real Jews
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe Arizona. A lot of people today will tell you that the Christ-rejecting “Jews” are God’s chosen people. Now I am going to prove to you from scripture that God does not even recognise them as Jews. Listen to Romans 2:28. The Bible reads “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” So this scripture tells us clearly that he is not a Jew which is one outwardly. So we look at people today that OUTWARDLY look like a Jew, or identify themselves as Jews. We look at them and say “oh, that person is Jewish, that person is a Jew.” God says that he is NOT a Jew, which one outwardly. You say “Well, he is circumcised.” No, the Bible says “Neither is circumcision that outward circumcision in the flesh”. It says “he is a Jew which is one inwardly.”
Now what does that mean? Well the Apostle Paul wrote unto the Philippians in chapter 3 verse 3, “For WE are the circumcision which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.” So according to Romans 2:28 and 29, these OUTWARD Jews, people who call themselves Jews, people that are circumcised in the flesh... He said “they’re not Jews, God does not regard them as Jews.” He says “WE ARE the circumcision who worship God in the spirit and”- watch this- “and rejoice in Christ Jesus.”
Let me ask you something today. Do the so-called Jews living over in Israel or living in New York today, do they rejoice in Christ Jesus? Because if not, then they’re not the circumcision in God’s eyes. They’re not the Jews in God’s eyes. The Bible says “we’re the circumcision who worship God in the spirit and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have NO confidence in the flesh.” They have all their confidence in the flesh today. They believe that they are God’s people because they are descended from Abraham in the flesh, or because they are doing a lot of works in the flesh, the works of the law. But the Bible says that we as Christians today are the circumcision. We’re God’s chosen people. And we rejoice in Christ Jesus.

Israel Moment #3 Jewish Synagogue = Synagogue of Satan
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe Arizona. Today I want to talk about Revelation 2:9. In the last video we showed in Romans 2:28 and 29 that he is not a Jew which one outwardly, the Bible told us. Neither is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh, but he is a Jew which is one inwardly. Keep that in mind as we read Revelation 2:9. The Bible reads “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.” Now in Romans 2:28, he said “he is not a Jew which is one outwardly.” That means that when God looks today at the people that call themselves Jews, he said if they don’t believe in Jesus Christ- Philippians 3:3- then they’re not circumcised in the heart, they’re not a Jew of the heart. They are a Jew outwardly, but God does not regard them as such.
So that’s why in Revelation chapter 2 verse 9 He talks about people who SAY they are Jews, and are NOT, but are the synagogue of Satan. So when the Jews today say “we’re Jews”, God says they are lying. Because He says “he is not a Jew which is one outwardly, neither is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh, but he is a Jew which is one inwardly.” Now there have been a lot of people over the years who have talked about who “the synagogue of Satan” represents, as if there is any question about it, as if there is any mystery about it. There is only one religion in the world that uses synagogues. That would be Judaism.
So when God talks about the “synagogue of Satan”, that’s clearly who he is talking about. By the way, they’re the only people who go around saying “we’re Jews”, when really God says they’re not, because they don’t believe in Christ. So it’s a pretty clear fit, especially when you get the context of the next verse, because right after He says “they say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan, he says in verse 10, “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer. Behold, the DEVIL shall cast some of you into prison that ye may be tried, and ye shall have tribulation ten days, be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of life.”
Why would God go directly from talking about the blasphemy of the synagogue of Satan, straight into a verse about Christians being persecuted? That’s because if you read the book of Acts, the Jews are always the ones persecuting the Christians. In fact, as you read the entire book of Acts, you will never find the Romans persecuting the Christians one time in that book. But over and over again, it is always the Jews who persecute the Christians in almost every single chapter, that’s why he associates the synagogue of Satan, those who say they are Jews and are not, with persecution of believers. Because they were the ones who were doing it at that time. There is no doubt about it, Judaism today IS the synagogue of Satan.

Israel Moment #4 Revelation 3:9 On the Synagogue of Satan
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist church in Tempe Arizona, and today we are going to continue talking about the synagogue of Satan. Now let me start out by saying this right away... When we talk about the “synagogue of Satan”, we’re not talking about a race of people or an ethnicity; we are talking about a religion. A synagogue is a place of worship, okay? So when the Bible talks about “the synagogue of Satan”, He is referring to the wicked religion of Judaism. It’s a blasphemous religion, and God says those who practice it say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
We know that those who practice Judaism say they are Jews, (but) according to Romans 2:28 and 29, they’re not Jews. According to Philippians 3:3, they’re not of the circumcision, because they don’t believe in Jesus Christ. Now in this passage, Revelation 3:9, listen to this. “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.” Now why would God have to make those of the synagogue of Satan to know that He hath loved the church at Philadelphia? He is speaking to gentile church at Philadelphia in Asia, and He says “I am going to make the synagogue of Satan to know that I have loved thee.” So whoever these people are in the synagogue of Satan, they somehow believe that God didn’t love the church at Philadelphia. That God only loved them. You know, “God loves the Jews, but the rest of you, well.... Sorry, you’re just not of the chosen ones, so, you know, God doesn’t love you, God doesn’t care as much about you.” That’s a lie.
And so the irony is, that whenever you speak out against the synagogue of Satan, which is every Jewish synagogue... Whenever you speak out against Judaism as a false religion, and whenever you speak out against ideologies like Zionism, you will often be called a racist, or anti-Semitic. But the irony is that those who are Zionist, or those who follow Judaism, are the racists, because they are the ones who believe that somehow because of their ethnicity, they are just automatically God’s chosen people, because they are physically of Abraham. And that we that are of a different ethnicity are somehow lower on the totem pole in God’s eyes.
So, those of us who believe the truth about this, we are just teaching that God is not a respecter of persons. We are just teaching that we are all equal in God’s sight when it comes to our ethnicity. Red and yellow, black and white, God isn’t really interested in what colour we are, we are all the same in God’s eyes in that sense. So the one who is really the racist is the Zionist. The one who is teaching Judaism that somehow your ethnicity makes you special in God’s eyes... Not in the New Testament. We are all of God’s people in the New Testament. We are all of one blood, and it is our belief in Jesus Christ that makes us God’s chosen people and you know what? God loves us just as much as he loves the so-called Jews today.

Israel Moment #5 Christians Inherit the Promises of Abraham
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe Arizona. Today we are going to talk about Genesis 12, 1 through 3. Now a lot of people today who support the modern nation of Israel, over in the Middle East today, they will use this scripture to tell you that you must support Israel, and you have to be pro Israel, because “if you bless Israel, God is going to bless you, but if you curse them, God is going to curse you.” Let me read for you the scripture where they are getting this, Genesis 12:1-3. The Bible reads “Now the Lord had said unto Abram, get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee and make thy name great; And thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
And they will say “see right there! If we bless Israel, God is going to bless us!” But notice, this promise is not made to the modern day nation of Israel. This promise is made unto Abraham and to his seed. Now listen to this from Galatians chapter number 3. The Bible says in Galatians 3:16, “Now to Abraham and his SEED were the promises made. He saith not and to SEEDS as of many; but as of one, and to thy SEED, which is Christ.” Jump down to verse 28. It says “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” So right there in Galatians 3 the Bible says the promise was made- yes, unto Abraham, and also to his seed... But the Bible says that “seed” was Christ, and that if we’re in Christ, we are that seed, WE’RE of Abraham, and we inherit that promise made to Abraham.
Now in the next video, I am going to really break down verse 3 where he says “in thee shall nations of the earth be blessed.” That is tied in with Galatians 3 also. So Galatians 3 quotes that exact scripture from Genesis chapter 12. This promise in Genesis 12, 1 through 3, cannot be claimed by the modern day nation of so-called Israel, because they are not in Christ. Therefore they are not of the seed of Abraham. He didn’t say “seeds”, plural, as of EVERY descendant that Abraham would have. No, He said to thee and “thy seed, which is Christ.”

Israel Moment #6 All Nations Blessed Through Abraham
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe Arizona. Today we are going to
continue talking about Genesis 12:1 through 3. I am going to start reading in verse 2. The Bible reads “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great, and thou shalt be a blessing. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee, and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Now of course people will try to apply these promises unto the modern day, Jesus Christ-rejecting nation of Israel, and say that if we bless them, God will bless us, and if we curse them, God will curse us.
Of course this promise was not made unto them. This promise was made unto Abraham using the words “thee” and “thou”, which are singular, speaking to Abraham saying “I am going to bless him that blesses YOU”- singular, Abraham, “and curse him that curses you.” Now, according to Galatians 3:16, we as believers in Jesus Christ inherit the promises of Abraham whether we be Jew or Gentile. That’s what we talked about in the last video.
Today I want to focus on verse 3. In verse 3 He said “I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee, and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Now what a lot of people will say is that “well, when the Bible says that in all nations.... In Abraham, all nations of the earth will be blessed, that’s because if they help Israel, they will be blessed. So all nations can be blessed by being pro-Israel, and by helping Israel militarily and financially. We can all be blessed.” Now this comes from a note in the Scofield reference Bible under Genesis 12, that says “yep, all nations will be blessed if they just support Israel. But listen to what Galatians chapter 3 says about that verse.
In Galatians chapter 3, verse 8, the Bible reads “And the scripture, forseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached the Gospel unto Abraham saying in thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of FAITH are blessed with faithful Abraham.” So according to Galatians chapter 3, the reason all nations of the earth are going to be blessed through Abraham, is through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And that by believing in Jesus Christ, we are blessed with faithful Abraham. He said in verse number 7, “Know ye therefore, that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.” Now look, I’m of faith. I believe in Jesus Christ. Therefore according to the Bible, I’m of the children of Abraham. If you believe in Jesus Christ, you’re a child of Abraham. And when God said unto Abraham “in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed”, He is referring to the fact that people of all nations will believe on Jesus Christ, who is the seed of Abraham. And so through Abraham and his seed Jesus, the whole world could be blessed, because anyone who believes in Jesus Christ will be blessed.
And the Bible is really clear in Revelation, that there will be people in Heaven out of every nation. All nations are blessed through Abraham. Please, if you still actually believe that the “Jews” today, so-called, are God’s chosen people, and that the modern day nation of Israel are the children of Abraham, please just read Galatians 3. Read the entire chapter! It goes on and on about this. It makes it clear. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. And even in this chapter, he quoted Genesis 12:3.

Israel Moment #7 Christ-rejecting Jews are Children of the Devil
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. In the last two videos, I showed you from Galatians chapter 3 that if we believe in Jesus Christ, we are the children of Abraham, we are the seed of Abraham. Now in John chapter 8, verse 39, Jesus is going back and forth with the unbelieving Jews, okay? Those that are not saved. “And they answered and said unto him”, in verse 39, “Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, IF YE WERE Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of YOUR FATHER. Then said they to him, we be not born of fornication; we have one father, even God! Jesus said unto them, if God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father THE DEVIL”.
Now in this scripture, they’re saying “Abraham’s our father!” Jesus turns around and says “No. Abraham’s not your father, because if Abraham were your father, ye would do the works of Abraham.” He said “If God were your Father, ye would love me.” So he is very clearly telling them in this passage, “Abraham is not your father, God is not your Father”, and he says “you are of your father the devil.” And who is he talking to? Unbelieving “Jews” who are following the religion of the Pharisees. Now, today’s religion of Judaism, Rabbinical Judaism, is the religion of the Pharisees. It’s a Christ-rejecting religion. And God says unto them, “you are not of Abraham.” And yet people today, Christians today, will say that the Jews are the children of Abraham, and they’re blessed because of Abraham.
And they will apply Genesis 12, 1 through 3, which is promises that were made to Abraham, and they will say, you know “that applies unto the Jews today, because they’re the seed of Abraham.” Jesus told them that Abraham is not their father, but that the devil is their father. So those promises do not apply to them. They do not inherit those promises. They inherit the devil. I mean, they don’t inherit the promises made to Abraham because Jesus said “you’re not of the seed of Abraham, if you were, you would believe in me.”

Israel Moment #8 Abraham is not the Father of the Jews
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, and today I want to talk about Mathew chapter 3, verse 9. Because those that are pro-Israel, or teach that we have to support the modern day nation of Israel, or that the Jews are still God’s chosen people today- even if they don’t believe in Jesus Christ- they will often point to Genesis 12, 1 through 3, and the promises made to Abraham. Where God says to Abraham that He is going to bless him, and that He is going to make his seed great, and He is going to make into a great nation and bless those that bless him and curse those that curse him. And they will try to apply those promises to unbelieving Israel.
Well Jesus told them in John chapter 8, that Abraham is not their father, but that they are of their father the devil. Galatians 3 tells us that those that are of faith are the real children of Abraham. But listen to Mathew 3:9. The Bible says in Mathew 3:9 “And think not to say within yourselves, we have Abraham to our father, for I say unto you that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees, therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire.” This scripture is crystal clear, that having Abraham be your physical father means nothing to God. He said, “don’t even THINK about saying we have Abraham to our father.” And that’s what the Jews are saying today. And John the Baptist is preaching to them that they need to believe on him that would come after him, which is Christ, and they are rejecting of Jesus Christ unto this day. He says “don’t even THINK about saying that Abraham is your father”. He said in verse 8 that they are a generation of vipers. And he said unto them that God is going to hew them down and cast them into the fire, they are not of Abraham, “don’t even think about saying that”, he said.
So again, we need to get off this thing of recognising the PHYSICAL descendents of Abraham as being God’s chosen people, and we need to realise that it’s the SPIRITUAL descendents of Abraham that are God’s chosen people. And that would be every believer in Jesus Christ, whether they be Jew or gentile, Galatians 3:28.

Israel Moment #9 The Holy Nation is Made up of All True Christians
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe Arizona, and today I want to talk about 1st Peter 2:9 and 10. The Bible reads “But 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: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: Which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.” So according to this scripture, we as believers are a chosen generation, we are a royal priesthood, we are a holy nation, and we are a peculiar people.
And what I really want to focus on in that, is that we as believers today are a holy nation. Now in the Old Testament, God said that of the nation of Israel, that they were to be unto Him an holy nation. But he says in the New Testament, that we as believers are a holy nation. Listen to verse 10. “Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God.” You see in the OId Testament, the holy nation of all believers didn’t exist, you know, it was the physical nation of Israel. But now in the New Testament, the Bible says that we in time past which were not a people, are now the people of God, “which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”
Let me just prove it to you further, because this scripture is a quote from Hosea chapter 1, verse 9. If we go to Romans chapter 9, which also quotes Hosea 1, listen to what the Bible says in Romans 9:24. “Even us whom he hath called, NOT OF THE JEWS ONLY, but also of the gentiles, as he saith also in Hosea, I will call them my people which were not my people, and her beloved which was not beloved.” So in the Old Testament, the gentiles were not God’s chosen people. The nation of Israel represented God’s chosen people. But in the New Testament he says, you know, those that in time past were not my people, have now become the people of God.
Look, we as gentiles in the New Testament today, are a holy nation. We are the chosen people of God. And of course, any (ethnic) Jews who believe in Jesus Christ, which there are some (ethnic) Jews who believe in Jesus Christ, they are also part of that holy nation. They are also part of the people of God. Because he says that he has called us, not of the Jews only, but also of the gentiles. In time past, meaning under the old covenant, we were not the people of God, as gentiles. But now, we are the people of God. We are the holy nation, we’re the peculiar people, and it’s not unbelieving “Jews”, that are God’s chosen people, according to 1st Peter 2:9 and 10, and according to Romans 9:24 and 25, and according to the teachings of Hosea chapters 1 and 2, we as believers in Christ are today the people... we have replaced the physical nation of Israel as being the holy nation. We have replaced the Old Testament nation of Israel, as being the people of God.

Israel Moment #10 Israel is no Longer the Holy Nation
Hello this is Pastor Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist church in Tempe, Arizona. Today I want to talk more about 1st Peter chapter 2, verses 9 and 10. Now to understand this passage it will help if we go back to the Old Testament scripture that 1st Peter 2 is referring to. Let me just start by reading 1st Peter 2:9 and 10. It says “But 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. Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
In the last video, I proved that that scripture is referring to both Jews and gentiles, by going back to Hosea, going to Romans 9 etc. but also he makes it clear in that passage that whoever he is talking to were not a people in time past. Of course we know that the children of Israel have always been a people. The nation of Israel has always been a people. So this is not referring to the nation of Israel, it’s referring to believers of both Jew and Gentile (origin), and I proved that in the last video.
But let’s go back to the source of this quote in Exodus chapter 19, beginning in verse 5, the bible reads “Now therefore IF ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me, above all people, for all the earth is mine. And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” So back in the Old Testament, God told the nation of Israel that IF they would keep his covenant, they would be a peculiar people, they would be a holy nation, and they would be a nation of priests, or a kingdom of priests. In 1st Peter 2, that’s exactly what he says unto believers, that we are. We ARE a peculiar people, we are a holy nation, we’re a royal priesthood, or a kingdom of priests.
So, it’s clear that 1st Peter 2 is quoting from Exodus chapter 19. And notice that Exodus 19 makes it clear that these promises only apply unto the children of Israel IF they keep his covenant. Well we know that they did not keep his covenant, because in Hebrews chapter 8, the Bible tells us “they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.” So in the Old Testament, God had a covenant, or an agreement, or promises unto the nation of Israel that had some IF’s associated with them. IF you continue in the covenant, IF you obey my voice. We know from Hebrews, we know from reading the Old Testament that the children of Israel broke that covenant, did not hear His voice, did not obey Him, and because of that, the Bible told them that the kingdom of God would be taken from them and be given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And in 1st Peter chapter 2, He tells us who that holy nation is, that peculiar people. It’s those who in times past were not a people. It’s just a nation made up of all believers that now comprise the people of God in the New Testament.
The nation of Israel is no longer regarded as God’s chosen people. They no longer are that holy nation. They are not the peculiar people, they are not a kingdom of priests. Show me the priests today. They don’t have priests offering sacrifices today. They’re a synagogue of Satan that’s run by Rabbis and so forth. And so to say that the children of Israel are STILL a chosen people, or a set-apart holy nation, is to deny scripture, because in order to be called the holy nation, they had to continue in the covenant. They broke the covenant, they are no longer God’s chosen people.
