Teaching: What Happens To Israel When We Preach
Romans 10:11-17 (GNT)
11 The scripture says, “Whoever believes in him will not be disappointed.” 12 This includes everyone, because there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles; God is the same Lord of all and richly blesses all who call to him. 13 As the scripture says, “Everyone who calls out to the Lord for help will be saved.”
14 But how can they call to him for help if they have not believed? And how can they believe if they have not heard the message? And how can they hear if the message is not proclaimed? 15 And how can the message be proclaimed if the messengers are not sent out? As the scripture says, “How wonderful is the coming of messengers who bring good news!”
16 But not all have accepted the Good News. Isaiah himself said, “Lord, who believed our message?” 17 So then, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message comes through preaching Christ.
18 But I ask: Is it true that they did not hear the message? Of course they did—for as the scripture says:
“The sound of their voice went out to all the world;
their words reached the ends of the earth.”
19 Again I ask: Did the people of Israel not understand? Moses himself is the first one to answer:
“I will use a so-called nation
to make my people jealous;
and by means of a nation of fools
I will make my people angry.”
20 And Isaiah is even bolder when he says,
“I was found by those who were not looking for me;
I appeared to those who were not asking for me.”
21 But concerning Israel he says, “All day long I held out my hands to welcome a disobedient and rebellious people.”
We are that nation Moses and Isaiah prophesied about. We provoke Israel to jealousy when we preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. When Israel sees the mighty signs we do in the name of Jesus Christ they become Jealous.
Because once we where people who went after and served pagan gods, some of us full of idolatry , we worshiped what was God.
But now by faith in we are saved and by the Messiah they denied.
God has hardened a part of Israel. So that us the gentiles could come in to the kingdom of God and be saved.
Romans 11:25 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
25 Lest you be self-opinionated (wise in your own conceits), I do not want you to miss this hidden truth and mystery, brethren: a hardening (insensibility) has [temporarily] befallen a part of Israel [to last] until the [a]full number of the in gathering of the Gentiles has come in,
We have a great privilege as gentile believers of Christ. Once all the full number of gentiles has come in to the kingdom of God. Than God will remove the hardness that has be fallen Israel.
Glory Be To God!! Lets keep on preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in its entirety.
