If it wasn’t for Gentiles then it isn’t for Gentiles Today
Just a cursory read of Exodus 19 leaves no possibility for an interpretation that God is dealing with any other people or nation but Israel, the Jews.
To inject a message of salvation or doctrine for the Gentile world at this moment in time (Exodus 19; 1500 BC) is a grave error. The promise of a King and a kingdom is explicitly for the Jewish people. To say that the Church today was the ecclesia in the wilderness is hogwash and a lie from hell. That is a clear attempt to usurp Scripture to get what you want from God.
NOTE: The apostle Paul makes it clear that all Scripture is for our learning (Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:16). But Paul also makes it crystal clear that we are to rightly divide the Word of God (2 Timothy 2:15; Ephesians 3:1-11, Titus 1:9).
Exodus 19:1-6, like ALL the Old Testament, are foundational to the Christian faith and building blocks to the revealing of the mystery (secret) of the gospel of grace (Romans 16:25-26).

It’s perhaps the most significant question one can ask today regarding biblical prophecy. The inquiry draws a line in the sand with each group holding fast to what they believe. The question is this: Will the Lord restore a glorious kingdom to Israel during Jesus’ thousand-year reign upon the earth? Most pastors today would answer “no” to that question. They believe God rejected the nation of Israel after the Hebrew people crucified His Son. As a result, the Father transferred his physical kingdom promises for Israel to the church, albeit in a spiritual sense. This is replacement theology. Because these pastors believe that the church has replaced Israel in God’s prophetic program, they see no scriptural significance in the reemergence of Israel as a nation. As a result, they do not believe we live in the last days, nor do they recognize the signs of the […]
