The Future and Fate of Israel - Part 3

Sun, Mar 03, 2019
Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written, “The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob” - Romans 11:25–26 (ESV) Do you love a good mystery? Maybe when you think about mysteries your favorite detective character comes to mind. Maybe when you think of mystery you think of some event or place that has secrets like the pyramids. When we think of mystery in the Biblical text, it's not about a secret or 'who done it', but about a truth or idea that was once hidden but now has been revealed. God doesn't tell us everything all at once. He progressively reveals truth including Christ. As we close out Romans 9-11, Paul talks about a mystery that involves the fate and future of ethnic Israel. He has a heart to see his brothers come to faith and mystery involves their future and salvation. Take a few minutes to read through the text to prepare your heart and mind to worship together.
