A Spiritual Jew
A Christian becomes a Spiritual Jew by virtue of accepting Christ. In the New Testament, the covenant was written with the Blood of Jesus. The Lord promised all the believers that, “I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people” (Hebrew 8:10). Therefore, all the promises that God made to the literal Jews in the Old Testaments are, today, for those that accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior (Jews or Gentiles). The following Bible verses will help shed light on who is a Spiritual Jew:
Paul confirmed, “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God” (Romans 2:28, 29).
“And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29).
A spiritual Jew is he who possesses the spirit and character that fulfills God’s purpose in calling him to be His chosen child. God separated him, not merely to perform certain external rites, but to be a person holy in heart and life (Deuteronomy 6:5; 10:12; 30:14; Psalm 51:16, 17; Isaiah 1:11–20; Micah 6:8). The fact that one is listed as a member of the church, or that he was born of godly ancestors, does not guarantee his salvation. The real is he who is one inwardly, for true religion is a matter of the heart.
