May 28: Romans 9-11

-Redemption and salvation

The natural mind cannot understand God’s unique relationship with Israel. We often see only Israel’s rebellion and God’s discipline upon her. Over and over Paul warns the Gentiles to see Israel with God’s love. God gave the Jews a spiritual blindness only for a season and for a purpose. Because of His faithful, covenant-keeping love, He has an appointed time when He will remove the veil.

Romans 11:25

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.

When Paul says, “all Israel” he is not saying that every single Jewish person will accept Yeshua as his Lord and Savior. Paul statement agrees with the prophets in the Tenach; there will be exceptions within the nation of Israel.

And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:

Romans 11:26-27

“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.”
