Sermons on Israel
20220403 Romans Review Pt 5 Salvation Is Come Unto The Gentiles “Hath God cast Away His People?” Romans 11:11 11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. The focus of the sermon this morning is based on Romans 11:11 to which I believe can be employed as a summary of no less than three chapters in the book…
Israel is our God’s Time Clock, this seems evident as we consider the Bible and all that it teaches concerning the future, especially in the light of Israel’s future. Watching Israel is watching the Bible being fulfilled in these last days.
We are living in the most incredible time in history. A time that is filled with confusion for many, but a time that’s well understood by some. To many, these days seem like everything is falling apart, but to some there is the clear recognition that everything is coming together. The Bible speaks of the last days with such clarity that it is shocking for many, and these days demonstrate the most incredible convergence of events ever seen, demonstrating with all certainty that we are living in the Times of The Signs spoken of by Jesus and the balance of the Bible. Please join me as I go through a number of those signs, and discern for yourself where we are on the prophetic timetable.
The fall of Israel made way for the salvation of the Gentiles, how much more blessing will come with their fullness? This is the argument given by Paul, Israel were always set by the Lord to be a blessing to all the families of the Earth
We have all knowns what it is like to miss out on something very important, but we have also known what it is like when an opportunity has opened up that we might be able to take advantage of. It might be a job opportunity that was made available through an individual stepping down, or a position on a team or a play etc, when someone else has, for one reason or another, decided to step aside and left an opportunity for another to step in. In just such a way does the passage before us speech respecting what has occurred with Israel and his fall respecting his rejection of the long-awaited messiah. Israel made a way for the gentile, “through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles”. (Rom 11:11)
Well, it’s one of the biggest questions in theology, Has God cast away his people Israel? It’s not questioned because there is any lack of clarity on the answer, the answer is presented with ALL clarity even in the very next two words in the text, “God forbid…”. It is a big question because the preference of many church denominations is that Israel had been done away with and the blessings conferred upon them by God in the Old Testament should now pass onto the Church, but this is not the biblical case. Satan, and all others who HATE Gods people Israel, desire them done away with, they hate whom God loves and have denied the very plain statement that “God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew” (Rom 11:2).
God had made a unilateral promise to Israel for the land they are in today. His promise was made evident in his word and through this incredible people, his promise is sure and we have all the evidence we need to know he keeps his promises. Israel are the ‘Children of the promise’, each person who has believed on the Lord Jesus Christ is a ‘Child of the promise’, his promises to us are also sure.
God’s People will always be the nation of Israel. Though all Israel is not of Israel (Rom 9:6) does not take away that the Jew’s are they who are referred to in Romans 11, and God certainly has not cast away his people, yet through their fall salvation has come to the world (Rom 11:11) Listen to why this is so important as we deal with the issue of the Rapture of the Church, The Blessed Hope.

Everything fits, everything comes together to create…
An incredible book that again demonstrates to all that the Lords ultimate desire is that for which man was created, a relationship with him. In each book we have studied so far we can’t help notice that together with the many judgments pronounced, God’s heart is for a relationship with each one of us.
