JUNE 26, 2024 ~ A WALK THROUGH THE NEW TESTAMENT




JUNE 26 READING…ROMANS 11


Has God rejected Israel and has He cast them away? The Apostle Paul makes it clear that the Lord has not abandoned Israel. Israel is that people that did not even exist and in one day God birthed them as a nation. They were established as a theocracy where God would be their King. Sadly, they said to God, “We want to be like the other nations” …what a terrible rejection of God. Yet, God still called out to His chosen people…He sent them prophets to call them back. Rather than listen to the Lord’s prophets they rejected them, killed them, and replaced them with false prophets who would tell them what they wanted to hear. Israel is no different than we are today…people hate and reject anyone who speaks truth, they seek those who will tickle their itchy ears, and they replace truth with false teaching and apostate doctrine. Finally, when God’s time came, He sent His Son, the Messiah, to redeem His people…but Israel rejected their own Messiah. This is not to say all those who were ethnic Jews rejected Messiah, for in the first century the church was made up of a large majority of Jewish believers. But as a whole the nation of Israel, as they rejected God in the Old Testament, rejected Jesus as Messiah. Therefore, God took the message of Messiah Jesus to the Gentiles. This was not God’s secondary plan for He had always intended to graph the Gentiles in, but the intention was to use Israel…that would not happen now. But, God is not through with the Jewish people…for it is God’s plan is to reach all people both Jew and Gentile. The Lord’s church is made up of both Jew and Gentile believers, and in Christ there is no difference. That being said God still has a plan for the nation of Israel…they are not following God’s plan today…but the day is coming when they will see Jesus again, and then they will receive their Messiah. Pray that day comes soon. Maranatha!
