Since I’m not a Jew or under Old Testament law, I’m not expecting to inherit any of the Davidic physical kingdom promises given to Israel in the Old Testament.
We’re in the church age now and eternal life is available freely by the grace of God (“not of works”). Read Paul’s Epistles for clarification and refutation of some of Catholicism’s (and many others) heresies regarding salvation.
After the church age, God will deal with the Jews as a nation again and the inheritance that was promised to the 12 tribes in the Old Testament. Catholicism, as well as most other assorted heresies, says that the promises (inheritance) to Israel are for NOW and for the church since we are “spiritual Jews,” bla, bla, bla... In Romans, Paul calls this CONCEITED and IGNORANT.
So, Vatican history is one of wars, murder, and politics, as they try to spread the physical “kingdom of Heaven,” which isn’t even here yet, and won’t be here until the King of the Kingdom of Heaven is here at the Second Coming.
However, the spiritual “kingdom of GOD” is here and you enter it SPIRITUALLY only and freely by the grace of God-- “NOT OF WORKS”; or, you don’t enter it at all (fancy statues, cathedrals, and fake “miracles,” fables, notwithstanding).
Of course, when Jesus was on earth, both kingdoms were presented, the physical and the spiritual. But, the Jews rejected their Messiah for the second time and officially in Acts 7 (along with the physical kingdom promises). The Gospel that Paul preached was revealed afterwards and way after Acts 2 where all the different heretics like to base all kinds of false teachings for the current church.
Like all Cults and humanists, they are trying to spread the WRONG kingdom (physical), instead of becoming part of the SPIRITUAL kingdom by being born-again by accepting Christ as their Savior.
The kingdom of HEAVEN will get here in the FUTURE at the Second Coming, and not before, and without the help of the United Nations, Catholic dictators (Hitler, Mussolini, Castro, et.al), Catholic mob bosses, counterfeit apostles in Rome, counterfeit apostles in Pentecostalism, counterfeit apostolic “gifts” in “‘Full Gospel” churches (so-called “charismatic” churches), Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh-Day Adventists, ecumenicalism, humanists, or Captain Kangaroo.
