The Called

The word Called when applied to people is defined by scripture as Israel.

Isaiah 48:12 “Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.”

The word church is from the Greek ekklesia a calling out. The church is made up of those who are called. Notice Romans 1:6 and 8:28 say “The Called”. It is a noun, not a verb.

Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are THE called according to his purpose.”

Using the scripture’s own definition for the noun Called means that it must always refer to true Israel only.

The modern day Jews are not Israel.
