Ancient Israel observed Baal worship, took part in it, and even brought its practices into the camp. What will be the tendency for antitypical Israel? As ancient Israel needed to be purged of its Baal worship, so modern Israel will have to undergo a similar experience. God did not reject ancient Israel but cleansed it. The antitype will also not be rejected but rather cleansed of those who worship both Yahweh and Baal.
