Conditional prophecy - to many people this is a foreign idea. Doesn't God keep all His promises no matter what I do? Is that what the Bible teaches or can God change His mind?
Jer 18:8-10 "if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it. And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it."
This text is clear, God can say He will do something for a nation but if that nation does not fulfill it's part--obedience, God tells us He is no longer bound to fulfill His part. This is vital to understand when dealing with end time prophecy concerning Israel. Watch this video and see how God has worked to fulfill prophecy and how He had led in the past - this tells us how He will lead in the future.
All of His promises to individuals and nations are in the category of conditional prophecies. An omniscient God has not entered into agreements with finite man that are not subject to conditions being met. If those conditions are not met God is not bound to keep His promise. Yes, He will have an Israel in the time of the end and they will receive the promises but who makes up the number? This is not replacement theology. "He who is a Jew is one inwardly" Rom. 2:29. Israel will receive the promises, all of them and all "Israel will be saved." How will this be played out is the question?
Why was Yahshua crucified? Did Yahshua have to be crucified? Was there an unfulfilled prophecy that was God's first choice in the death of His Son. This video answers this and many other questions. Please watch this video, it will answer many questions you might have about conditional prophecy.
