July 4: Israel’s redemption and salvation, Messianic prophesy

Despite Paul’s desire that the Gentiles would understand the “mystery” of God, sadly many people today are ignorant.  The great mystery, is that God brought together Jews and Gentiles in Yeshua, creating the One New Man.  The Gentiles were thus partakers of the promises of the commonwealth of Israel. 

While the Gentiles were blessed with salvation, Paul reminded them that their blessings came at the expense of Israel’s blindness.  Therefore, rather than hating the Jews, which so many did, they were to repay the debt by sharing the Gospel with them. 

Romans 11:25-27

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.”

PRAY FOR GOD TO PROVIDE YOU OPPORTUNITIES TO SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH JEWISH PEOPLE.
