Romans 11

This 11th Chapter is showing how Paul reconciled the truth that the Jews rejected the promise made to them, and is showing the harshness of it to show the need of seeing the Divine goodness in general; has God then cast away His people? He shows how His mercy is mixed with His wrath. He infers thence the infinite wisdom and sovereignty of God, with the adoration of which he concludes this Chapter and Subject Romans 11:33-36 33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! 34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord?

Or who has become His counselor?”
35 “Or who has first given to Him
And it shall be repaid to him?”
To this very day.” David quotes from Ps 69:22 and 23

36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen

 

Israel’s Rejection Not Total Thank the Lord God is in control all are not cast off; now the Gentiles are taken in. Soon the Jews cast off will be taken into the Church again. It is imperative we abide In Him so we bear fruit.

11 I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God has a chosen remnant that He predestinated, or called the election, God loved one no all. Paul one of these, was a Israelite. He was the least and Youngest like Benjamin was.   God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying, Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life”Paul was as human as one can get and he knows the Christians were not wanted, as even he was much early, having christians killed but God, rescued and saved him and left him blind for three days, How long do we remain blind not seeing the truth of God’s word.  But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” God is a rewarder of those who abide with Him and the stronger the night the less light is needed and Just as Elijah was feeling down God had a way of lifting him up. As Gods people we will never be crushed for God loves His own and as a Church we are called of the Lord. Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. Thank the Lord He is in charge and loves people and loves the Church that is people that follow Him and serve Him. We, will never know how many people have been called and accepted the call until we get to heaven. And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. [a]But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. What a statement Grace is not works and works is not grace. Grace is free, faith is free, salvation is free when we ask God to come and abide in us. Election is a freedom of our will, I will to have faith and receive the grace and mercy of the Lord, so I can do the works of a Christian. I have said many times people try too hard to be a Christian and it needs to be accepted by Faith, so Gods grace is present to empower us to continue to breath and get stronger. 

What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect 

have obtained it, and the rest were blinded. Some are blind and can’t see for they do not want to believe God, they enjoy the old nature doing whatever they want, and do not want anyone to tell them what to do, or how to do it! We are blind for we do not want to see the way, truth and life the Lord has in His store house. It is each to be harden to the touch of the Spirit of God, from the touch of the gospel of peace, goodwill and love. People shut their eyes to evil and lust for sin, and we see the consequence of being punished for many do not care. Loss of family, identity, job, marriage, and other good relations are hurting,which are all sign of being blind to realties vividness of imagination. Israel seems to be asleep of what is going on, even yet today as people are out to destroy them, They have eyes, but can see, ears but can hear. They saw Christ but did not accept Him and still to this day with enemies surrounding them are out to destroy them. What a reason to believe and trust the Lord for protection knowing they are protecting themselves with their intelligence to believe in gods way. The Bible says His blood be upon us and upon our children and how true that really is to anyone that does not accept the Blood of the Lamb of God to cleanse and heal our bodies, souls and spirits. 

 Just as it is written: “God has given them a spirit of stupor, Eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear,

Psalm 69:22 New King James Version (NKJV)

22 Let their table become a snare before them,
And their well-being a trap.

23 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see;
And make their loins shake continually.

9. And David says: “Let their table become a snare and a trap,
A stumbling block and a recompense to them. Here it is repeated as if they never learned, just like today, How many times do we forget and have to get back to the basic. For God has nothing but good in store for us if we can only abide in Him. Let their table become a snare to them as they fall into their own trap, the curse of God is like poisoned meat of the word that we interpret from ourselves. God will curse our blessing Mal. 2:2 The very food that should nourish us can choke us. Notice verse
10 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see,
And bow down their back always.” When the Jews rejected the Lord and had Him killed on a cross in Jerusalem they did not see what they had done and could not see the truth in what happened. They have been trampled down by carnality and worldly mindedness. There is no a more worldly, willful, blind people in the world even yet today. Divine curses will work a long time.  Now we see History of God’s grace is beginning.

Israel’s Rejection Not Final

11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their [b]fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. The gentiles because of the fall are now taken in and they need to understand it is by faith they can become grafted into the Jewish race. So now the poor Gentiles are able to feast at the table of God’s love, mercy and grace. Matthew 22:8 & 9 Those that were bidden where not worthy-Go ye therefore into the Highways and compel them to come in. Luke 14:21 

21 So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the [a]maimed and the lame and the blind.’

12 Now if their [c]fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! The Gospel is the riches of the place where it is; it is better than silver or gold, for we are Gods Jewels. Let’s make sure we are accountable for the price the Lord paid that we might have life abundantly and free. 

13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. 15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

I am sorry for not writing on my web site as I had trouble with my computer. This is a message I feel is very timely and am putting it on so everyone can agree we need to pray the we will be revived again so the fire of the Holy Spirit can burn out all the sin that wants to destroy our relationship with the Lord.

Pastors: It's Time to Break the Silence on American Culture

Pastors: It's Time to Break the Silence on American Culture
 
A paraphrase that is often attributed to Alexis De Tocqueville—a Frenchman who authored Democracy in America in the early 1800s, helps to open this letter: “I looked throughout America to find where her greatness originated. I looked for it in her harbors and on her shorelines, in her fertile fields and boundless prairies, and in her gold mines and vast world commerce, but it was not there.”
“It was not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her success. America is great because she is good, and if America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”
Over the last few decades, Americans have seen the destruction of the institution of marriage between a man and a woman, the removal of God’s Word in several areas, and the blatant murdering of millions of babies. This is an indictment against America and the pulpit is partially responsible – our silence speaks volumes.
The pulpit regulates the spiritual condition of God’s people which affects the nation. A lukewarm, sex-saturated culture (and church) simply reflects the lack of conviction in the pulpit as well as the pew.
Sadly, many pastors are exchanging truth for passivity, boldness for cowardliness, and conviction for comfort…they are not aflame with righteousness. We aim to be motivational speakers rather than preachers of righteousness.
Pastors (and Christian leaders alike) must take responsibility for the spiritual health of today’s church, and the nation. We don’t need more marketing plans, demographic studies, or giving campaigns; we need men filled with the Spirit of God.
Pastors, we are not just cheerleaders, we are game changers. We are called to stir and to convict so that change takes place. Granted, there are many wonderful pastors and churches—I appreciate their ministry, but, as a whole, the church has drifted off course. They have lost the compass of truth. Here are four ways to re-set the compass.

Romans 10 Continued

12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. What a powerful thought for God created us all and we all matter to the Lord as He wants us to accept His love, mercy and, grace regardless of tradition, race or color of skin. God gave us all air, water and, food so we can work and live with a healthy body yet look at what many are doing as they do not care about what God is doing and going to do?  Lord help us to call upon you, that is praying to God that we can be full of the Holy Spirit so we are empowered to resist sins. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” This is not a secret it is well known, but very hard to accept for it is too good to be true, many have called and received the blessing of the beatitudes. Prayer is the life of a Christian for it is the lifeline that gives fresh air that is pure and holy. The area of the Lord where persecution in the greatest is where the Lord is manifested the most for He lifts the pain and burden of the circumstance and gives hope and faith that does not forget who we worship and who we reverence and pray to for help.
Israel Rejects the Gospel
14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? This made the Jews angry for the Gentiles were despised, but God loves the world and all within it. That is the reason we have preachers, evangelist, prophets and teacher that are approved by God to minister around the world to those that are lost, so they can be found of the Spirit of the Lord. Someone has to tell us the good news Jesus saves anyone that calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who [b]preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” I remember applying for the ministry and being asked the reason. I said the Lord called me from logging to working as a logger to farming and now becoming a minister of the Gospel. Minister are appointed by God to bring good news to others, it is a commitment to witness the forgiveness of sin and becoming alive for Christ. God is the Lord of the harvest and we need to pray that we can bring hope of becoming what God created us, so we can all achieve our potential as we abide in the vine Jesus. Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of Him that brength good tiding, that publish peace; that bringeth good tiding of good, that publishes salvation, that saith unto Zion, thy God reigneth. Then Nahum 1:15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that. bringeth good tiding, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep the solemn feast, perform the vows; for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off. We preach the gospel of peace being reconciled to God, becoming more and more like Him. To bring glad tiding to evangelize or spread the Gospel to all who have not heard is what minsters are in the Kingdom of God for. 
e inclined to be jealous and envies and see bitterness come and destroy all that is good. Sin is always death that punishes us by not accepting life. Lord Help us to see what God has promised to those that believe. 
20 But Isaiah is very bold and says:
“I was found by those who did not seek Me;
I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.” We are asked to seek so we can find, knock so it will be opened. Yet God is in control not as a ruler but as a friend giving good gifts that will always bless us. That’s the reason Jesus came as the Light of the World, the Bread of Heaven, the vine, so we can be productive in bearing goodwill and peace to all
 
21 But to Israel he says: “All day long I have stretched out My hands To a disobedient and contrary people.”
God never forgot Israel He has always stretched out His hands in love and forgiveness to all. God’s Hands are outstretched still for us all, black, yellow, tan or white, to come to the fountain and drink the water of life that is in Jesus alone. Gods hands are outstretched now, today! Let’s be careful we are not disobedient but want to obey Him as we adore Him.
