1/21/17 Israel Will Return

“I want you to understand this mystery that God has revealed to us, so that you don’t grow too proud because you have been granted admission into the family of God through your faith while Israel has been excluded because of their rejection of the Messiah.  It is not all of the Jews who have hardened their hearts against Jesus, and this hardening of hearts is only temporary, until all of the Gentiles who are to be included in God’s family have come.  When the right time comes, God will open their eyes to the truth so that all of Israel will be saved from the death penalty that their sins hold.  As Isaiah wrote, ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; for this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.’  Regarding Jesus and His message, Israel is your enemy right now.  But even if it is only for the sake of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their love for and obedience to God, the people of Israel are still and will always be God’s chosen people.  When He calls someone, when He chooses someone and bestows His gifts upon him, it is a permanent calling and a permanent gifting, and it cannot be taken away.”
