Q. I have heard people say: “All the Jews will be saved.” Is that true? If all the Jews will go to heaven, what about those that die today and tomorrow, before the rapture or before proving their faith in the tribulation period? Will they go to heaven or not? Isn’t Jesus the only “ticket” to the Father and Heaven?
A. Yes, Jesus Himself said, “No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Jews who die without Jesus are lost, in the same way that Gentiles who die without Jesus are lost. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
In Romans 11:26 Paul states that “All Israel will be saved.” By this he meant that each of the 12 tribes will be represented in the Kingdom Age and all will believe in Jesus. He didn’t mean that every Jew will be saved.
It’s my personal view that most of the Jews alive during the re-gathering following the Battle of Ezekiel 38 will come to faith in Jesus during the Great Tribulation and be saved. Zechariah 12:10 reveals that once the blinders come off and their hearts are softened, they will find the evidence from their own Scriptures too compelling to ignore.
