The Gentile and the Jew United

April 17, 2010

“And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins.'” – Romans 11:26-27

God has told us over and over again of His passionate love for the Jewish people. He explains to us there is an irrational hardness of heart among so many Jewish people to the name of Christ, the person of Christ, the gospel of Christ. Accept it! Don’t get mad or arrogant about it! Whatever you do, don’t listen to the mindset of the evil one and buy into anti-Semitism. Recognize that God loves the people of Israel and has not given up on them. In fact, He has great plans for the salvation of Israel!

When Christ comes again and Israel receives salvation, Christ will reign from the throne of David in Jerusalem for a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4-6) Then, Christ will ultimately bring about the new Jerusalem, the new heaven, and the new earth. (Revelation 21 & 22) And in that day, there will be no more sickness. There will be no more death. There will be no more sin. There will be no more evil. It will all be done away with as we celebrate the glory of the Lord for all of eternity. Jews and Gentiles, alike, will be a part of the kingdom of God. What a wonderful day that will be!
