Romans 11:16-18, 25-27
Paul speaking to the Gentiles says, “For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you… For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘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.”
God loves His covenant people, the Jews, and He has not forgotten them. We should be wise to remember that, no matter where our forefathers came from, if we are part of God’s covenant plan through Jesus Christ, our spiritual roots are tied in with His covenant people, the Israelites. God is shaking the Church into a level of reality. One key for the church in days ahead will be understanding the concept of “One New Man.” The church must understand and remain faithful to the purposes e of a sovereign God whose firstfruit land and people is still in the forefront of His heart.
