The Gentile and the Jew – United

April 17, 2009

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments! How unfathomable His ways! For who has known the mind of the Lord? Who has become His counselor? Or who has first given to Him that it might be paid back to him? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.” – Romans 11:33

God has told us over and over again of His passionate love for the Jewish people. He explains to us there is a 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! (Romans 11:26)

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 a part of the kingdom of God. What a wonderful day that will be!
