Do I mean that the people of Israel fell, never to get up again? Certainly not! Their failure made it possible for the Gentiles to be saved, and this will make the people of Israel jealous. But if the rest of the world's people were helped so much by their sin and loss, they will be helped even more by their full return.
Romans 11:11-12 (CEV)
Jesus was a Jew and He was subject to the law of Moses! No one before or since Jesus ever kept the law of God perfectly, but Jesus did. Jesus never needed to ask God for forgiveness. He never sinned! But in spite of Jesus doing everything that God required of a Jew His fellow Israelites rejected Him. But God worked, even through that for the ultimate salvation of those who would accept Jesus!
Many believe that these verses in Romans 11 are saying that there will be a time when the Jews will accept Jesus as the Messiah and turn their hearts to Him. It is well documented that hundreds of thousands of Muslims are accepting Christ, can the Jews be far behind?
Sometimes it is hard to see the true greatness of a man if you know him very well. Many Jews are still looking for the Messiah to come! Pray that God will open the eyes of the people of Israel to see that Jesus is the Messiah for whom they have been looking!
When Muslims and Jews both turn their hearts to Jesus there will be no more need for war! Pray for and trust God for the "PRINCE OF PEACE AGREEMENT" in the Middle East! Jesus brings peace to all our hearts!
"Lord Jesus, where there is war, bring peace. Where there is hatred bring love. Where there is sin bring righteousness and where there is despair bring hope! Come quickly Lord Jesus! Amen."
