The Church Is Spiritual Israel Or Is It?

The Definition of Natural Israel and Spiritual Israel



The question of whether the church is spiritual Israel is easily answered in the Christian Bible as scripture defines the real essence of what it means to be a Jew--according to the flesh and according to the Spirit. Natural Israel is composed of the descendants of Jacob whose name was changed to Israel (Genesis 35:10). We see the apostle Paul in scripture speaking of natural Israel when he said, "...Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin." Although Christians can claim that they also are of the seed of Abraham, how many can say that they are of any specific tribe of natural Israel?

Spiritual Israel is composed of both natural and spiritual Jews. A spiritual Jew is anyone who has received the Son of God, Jesus, as Lord and Savior because that individual has had his or her heart circumcised in the Spirit. Romans 2:28-29 teaches, "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 (law), whose praise is not of men, but of God."

The apostle Paul further teaches that under the New Testament in grace, the true members of spiritual Israel are Jews according to the flesh who have believed on Christ as well as those who are not Jews according to the flesh who have believed on Christ. He also stresses that a person can be of natural Israel and not of Spiritual Israel because of his or her spiritual condition. In Romans 9:6-7, Paul explained, "Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel; neither because they are the seed of Abraham are they all children; but, in Isaac shall they seed be called." He goes on to explain the significance of Isaac being the promised child as opposed to Ishmael who was born according to man's will. Study of the book of Romans is imperative for those who would like a more in-depth knowledge of this subject.

Even in the Old Testament, the Gentiles were free at any time to become a part of the congregation of God by becomming a Jew--a part of Spiritual Israel even back in those days. We see this in the book of Exodus, chapter 12, verse 38 where we read that a "mixed multitude" left Egypt with the Jews. We also learn in the Old Testament book of Esther that Gentiles became Jews or God's people (Esther 8:17).

"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" (Galatians 3:28). Yes, the church is spiritual Israel; but, it is not composed strictly of Gentiles who have been redeemed by Christ. It is composed of many members of natural Israel as well.
