Romans 11:25 do the Jewish people still play a part in God's plans or have they been replaced by Spiritual Israel?

Was Paul foretelling an eleventh hour mass conversion of the Jews to Christianity? Clearly, no such conversion has taken place.
By the expression all Israel, Paul meant all of spiritual Israel Christians who have been selected by holy spirit.
He was saying that the failure of the natural Jews to accept the Messiah would not thwart God’s purpose.
To arrive at a correct understanding of what is recorded at Romans 11:25, 26.
We should also take into account these earlier statements in Romans: “He is not a Jew who is one on the outside, nor is circumcision that which is on the outside upon the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and his circumcision is that of the heart by spirit, and not by a written code.”
Not all who spring from Israel are really Israel.

Yes, they do. The Lord is going to keep all his promises to Israel. But God favors those who actually try to keep his current commandments.

Yes, of course they are a part of God's plans.
Jesus is the good Olive Tree. Israel is the natural branches. Thou they were cut off, they can be grafted back in again....
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

The purpose of Judaism was to be the people through whom the Messiah, the Savior of humanity, would come into the world. Their part in God's plan was fulfilled when Jesus was born.

BARJONA is the CHURCH/NATION Christ built on Simon Peter Barjona and Peter's descendants as CONTINUATION of Jacob and ISRAEL. Peter's DESCENDANTS(NOT the popes) are his successors. All who are saved enters the Kingdom, not the Church. The Kingdom is more important.

"Replacement theology" is a lie, so there is your answer. The church doesn't replace Israel. The church is grafted into and added to Israel. Jewish people must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved. Jewish people still get the land of Israel and all the promises.

Israel hasn't existed for a long time, God himself scattered it long agoSource(s): The old testament literally describes this
