This topic is primarily aimed at refuting replacement theology:
Many Christians hold to the theory that God has replaced Israel with the Church and we are now the "spiritual Israel".
What does the Bible say about this?
Does Israel still have a role in God's redemption plan and if so what is their role?
About the Speaker
Gilbert Carthigasu received Jesus as his Lord and Saviour in 1985. Married to Almena, whom he met at Youth With A Mission in 1987, they have 3 adult children .

They received a revelation of God’s heart for Israel in 1999 through a Passover celebration led by Rev. Joel Baker. In 2003 God began to open doors for Gilbert to speak to groups of pastors on the subject of the Hebraic roots of our faith. In 2006 to better equip himself for this new ministry Gilbert attended the School of Jewish Studies conducted by Youth With a Mission in Richmond, Virginia, USA.
In 2007 they founded One New Man Asia, a ministry dedicated to helping Christians understand our roots in Israel and to connect the church with Israel. Over the years he has conducted seminars and teaching sessions in Singapore and other parts in Asia.
One New Man Asia is the National co-ordinator for the Day to Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, an annual event aimed at getting Christians from all parts of the body of Christ to gather on the first Sunday of October every year to pray for Israel and the Jewish people. It is part of the Asia Messianic Forum, a fellowship of believers who stand with and support the work of the Messianic body in Israel.
