"Jew" or " Jewish people '' should be interpreted to mean Yahovah's chosen people. WHO He desires as His people, and WHAT their standard of morals, holiness and faith should and shouldn't be.
However, we have been conditioned to ignore the NEW testament, Holy Spirit written and discerned definition of WHO IS a Jew from our Creator’s perspective. Discernment that was purposefully given to Paul, a Jew.
How is it, that those of us who claim we are UNDER the New Covenant, systematically resort to the old. The Bible tells us that the flesh (old Covenant) cannot understand the things of the Spirit (the New) because they are Spiritually discerned.
The New Testament/New Covenant, brings SPIRITUALLY discerned understanding OF the Old Testament/Covenant:
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29 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.
THIS is who YAHOVAH says is His intended people.
This is not so called "Replacement Theology".
This is The Spirit of Yahovah giving us spiritual understanding (to those who will accept it) of WHO His people are. WHAT Israel really is.
A spiritual people and a land created by HIM, for HIS people. A People who are called by HIS name.
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place
6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: 7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that shows mercy.
- In other words, it's not Israel because of man's desire. No one can will themselves to be righteous Israel. It's not by man's will (by birth) or because they've been following the religion for a millennia ("him that runneth"). It's by who Yahovah says are His people, NOT genetics, or DNA.
But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.
