Israel or the Church

Father God raised up a nation called the children of Israel [People who came from the linage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob] to be a witness to the world of what happens when they listened to His voice and were obedient to what they were told. The end result after many generations was a nation that lost the relationship, lived by laws they had made and became full of pride saying they were the chosen ones and every one else was dammed. After Jesus came, died on the Cross, buried, rose after 3 days and returned to heaven, the nation of Israel was replaced as a nation to be the witness to the world. Father God created a body on earth called the Church to be that witness until the time the church age ends. Sad to say the church has gone the way the nation of Israel went, full of pride proclaiming to be God's chosen and locked away unto themselves especially in western nations. There are nations in the world right now where professing Christians are dying for their faith. How would those in western nations respond to being persecuted even to death as they are? Would the response be as Stephens was as recorded in Acts 7: 59-“ 60 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. The church age is about to come to an end, then Father God will return to the nation of Israel, as recorded in Romans 11:25-27 “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 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: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”
