The church is the church. Israel is Israel. The church will never replace Israel either in location nor in the heart of God. Israel is the natural Olive Tree. The church is the grafted-on branch.

They can only ever be the spiritually dead wild olive branches, grafted on to God’s chosen Olive Tree for spiritual life and sustenance. (Romans 11:16 to 27).
