Summary: We better look close at what the scripture says about the Jewish nation.
GOD STILL Loves THE JEWS
They play a vital part in God’s future plans.
For many years there have been many try destroy the Jewish race.
God has his hand on them that why it has not been done and never will.
(1) A review of the Jews in the scripture. VV.1—10
Rejection v-1 Has God rejected them.
They rejected him . John 1: 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
He has not and never will reject them.
Elijah felt all alone.
There were 7000 serving God.
1st Kings 19: 10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:
12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
15 And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
17 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
Not all have forgotten God.
There is a remnant Note v.6
Saved by Grace.
Eph 2: 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Some were saved
(2) Rejection of the Jews in the scripture vv.11—12
Salvation was there for them they rejected it.
Did God forget them he sure did not.
They stumbled over Salvation others were blessed with it.
John 1: 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Reasoning to the Gentiles in the Scripture. Vv.13—16
Paul’s special call to the gentiles did not exclude the Jews.
Romans 1: 1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
Paul has a desire that all men would come to know Christ.
When the Jews came to Christ it was like dead coming to life.
Romans 1: 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
If loaf one is Holy all the bread is Holy.
If the root is Holy then so are the branches.
Reception by the Jews in Jews vv.17—24
The branches that were broken we were put in their place.
We now share in that rich rooted olive tree.
We are not more favored just grafted in
God spared not the natural will he spare the Gentiles who reject him
2nd Peter 2: 4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
If they will only trust Christ he will reinstate them in the family.
Romans 10: 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
