12/10/2023 Romans 11:25-36 Salvation Begins, Continues and Ends in God to His Glory
Finally reaching the end of Romans 11 and the completion of the section that started with Paul asking the question in Romans 9, "What about my kinsmen Israel? Is there a future for them?" And the answer is a resounding, "Yes!" God has kept (and is keeping) a chosen remnant within ethnic Israel to be a part of the Church so that it will always be made up of both ethnic Jew and ethnic Gentiles. But one day, before Christ returns, there will be a mass conversion of ethnic Jews who come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah that will flood into the Church. All of this is due to God's mercy to rescue both Jew and Gentile. Which brings Paul to proclaim and praise at the end of the chapter, "IT IS ALL ABOUT GOD AND HIS GLORY! FOREVER AND EVER. AMEN."
