Some question the salvific condition of the Jewish people; others argue greatly that the Jews are not saved. The fact of the matter is that the Bible is quite clear on the matter as to whether or the Jewish people are saved. If we were to search the Scriptures, we would soon discover a plethora of verses throughout the entire Old Testament that stipulates that the Heavenly Father has saved and continued to manifest this salvation upon the Israeli people.
“How blessed you are, O Israel! Who else is like you, a people saved by the L-RD? He is your protecting shield and your triumphant sword! Your enemies will cringe before you, and you will stomp on their backs!” (Deuteronomy 33:29)
11 I, yes I, am Hashem, and there is no other Savior. 12 First I predicted your rescue, then I saved you and proclaimed it to the world. No foreign deity has ever done this. You are witnesses that I am the only Elohim,” says Hashem. 13 “From eternity to eternity I am Elohim. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done” (Isaiah 43:12-3). Who is it that declares that we, the people of Israel, are saved? The Creator Himself and no other: “It is I, Hashem, announcing your salvation! It is I, Hashem, who has the power to save!” (Reference Isaiah 63:1).
As we have previously read in Isaiah 43:12, it is the Heavenly Father who makes this proclamation concerning Israel’s salvation. The Brit Chadasha (i.e., The New Testament) adds, “16 To those who are perishing, we (i.e., the children of Israel) are a dreadful smell of death and doom. But to those who are being saved, we (i.e., the children of Israel) are a life-giving perfume. And who is adequate for such a task as this? 17 You see, we are not like the many hucksters who preach for personal profit. We preach the word of Elohim with sincerity and with Messiah’s authority, knowing that Elohim is watching us” (2 Corinthians 2:16-7).
Those who reject the Heavenly Father’s message of Israel’s salvation are the result of their own demise, not being part of a saved group of people. Instead of entertaining the idea that our salvation is dependent upon a religious affiliation, the Bible leads us to understand that “Only in the L-RD our G-d will Israel ever find salvation” (reference Jeremiah 23:3). Our Elohim has saved us and declared such a marvelous act to all the nations of the earth; thus, we are an incomparable people. Just as much as He has saved us, we also believe that all Israel will be saved (reference Jeremiah 30:7, Romans 11:26-7).
So, do we (i.e., the people of Israel) believe that Jews are saved? Well, we don’t believe that the Jews are saved; we KNOW that the Jews are saved because the Heavenly Father says so. “In that day the people will proclaim, ‘This is our Elohim! We trusted in him, and he saved us! This is Hashem, in whom we trusted. Let us rejoice in the salvation he brings!’” (Isaiah 25:9)
