Has God Cast Away Israel

(Rom. 11:7-8) “What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.”  There are some that believe that Israel as a people have been cursed and rejected by God, and that they have no hope of  restoration; but is that what the Bible teaches?  Israel as a nation has been set aside temporarily because of their unbelief of Christ as a nation, but individually they can be saved if they place their faith in Jesus Christ, just like anyone else. The only difference between a Gentile and a Jew is that God has placed upon Israel a judgment of spiritual blindness. The word “blindness” means: ”to render insensitive to or to be not interested in.” Why did this happen, because they have chose to trust in their religion more than in God’s Word, causing a blindness of heart.

America, A Government After God's Own Heart

(Rom. 13:1)  “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” In the above verse the words “powers that be” refer to the gift of government to mankind. God’s intention for government officials are to rule for Him. Unfortunately, in this world all governments are not the same, and that’s precisely why we as American’s should be thankful for our form of government that is patterned after God’s ideology and not this world’s. Our Constitution, Amendments, and Declaration of Independence were all written by our founding fathers with the will of our Bible’s God in mind, as well as a personal dream of having a free country where every man has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as he sees fit. As Americans we have a tremendous heritage to remember and never forget. A heritage not only patterned after God’s Word, but a heritage that has been handed down to us by faithful men to protect and defend…

It's Man That Chooses His Eternity Not God

(Rom. 9:11,13) “For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth; As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” Because of the above verses, many a scholar have concluded falsely that God choses some men to be saved and others to be damned; Just as He chose Jacob in the above verse over Esau in the book of Genesis, and Israel over Egypt. What a sad commentary to believe that we are nothing more than pawns in the chess game of God, where we have no choice of salvation, nor any choice in changing or determining our future and eternity.  Oh listen, the above verses teach us that God is sovereign and that He can do what He wants, but He is also bound by His Word. God would not teach here that the fate of some is set by God’s unchanging will and then tease man later in scripture and say we do have a choice or freewill in the matter. No, His Word teaches…
