PAULS BURDEN FOR ISRAEL

GODS WORD HAS NOT FAILED

Not all Israel are of Israel

Logical Conjunctions

National Israel is not God’s Israel

The Israel within Israel

The Israel within Israel

Descendents of Abraham are not God’s children

Sons of Abraham are not all Children

Children of the flesh

In other words, God has never limited himself to the “blood line theology” For even after God promised Abraham a seed, later he chose the seed he will.

No Person is Born a Child of God

The Word of Promise

What was Gods Promise?
Isaac vs Ishmael
Jacob vs Esau
The Bible Exposition Commentary Chapter Eight: Did God Make a Mistake? (Romans 9)

Election is always totally a matter of grace. If God acted only on the basis of righteousness, nobody would ever be saved. Paul quoted Exodus 33:19 to show that God’s mercy and compassion are extended according to God’s will and not man’s will. All of us deserve condemnation—not mercy.

Gods choosing of Jacob over Esau was not a decision based on what was right or even what was wrong for that matter. God’s Justice
You know I thought about this… You know God would be just if He saved the entire world. Why? Well Christ’s death was sufficient for all. But God has mercy on whom he chooses to have mercy and HE CHOOSES TO HAVE MERCY ON THOSE WHO BELIEVE.
Consider the parable of the slaves and the penny… ONE WORKED FOR TWELVE HOURS
Now here both were rewarded, while in only one party is rewarded mercy. But the concept is the same. One was upset because he worked in the heat of the day so he thus deserved more. In Romans the party who doesn't receive crys out because another received something he did not. Still God is the accused in both.

GOD IS SOVEREIGN

Moses

If anyone should have been chosen, or offered mercy because of running, or willing through HIs works, it would have been Moses. If you would pick one person in the OT aside form Abraham that you believed had earned Mercy, He would be it!
PAUL IS BRINGING UP A THEME THAT HE WILL CARRY THROUGHOUT THESE CHAPTERS

No Nation has a Claim on the Mercy of God

Pharaoh

Paul's point here is very clear. Paul could have mentioned the reality that Pharaoh hardened his own heart. I mean the Bible is very clear. But Paul is silent about this. Why? It really doesn't serve his point. His purpose here is to demonstrate that God has the right to do what He wants!
Pauls point centered around God’s Soveriengty, nt on Human responsibility. But Clearly man does have responsibility. We all know that Pharaoh indeed hardened his own heart first. Paul could have easily have said the same of Israel. Their hardening has been continual and God has finished it. It will continue
Now we all know that Pharaoh indeed hardened his own heart first. Paul could have easily have said the same of Israel. Their hardening has been continual and God has finished it. It will continue
;;11
These Jews had basically decided for GOd that it was going to be by flesh, it wwas going to be by LAW!!
BUT “It is not of him that willeth or rtunneth” They do not get to deicide
STILL IT IS UNFARE NOT TO MENTION THAT

THE POTTER AND THE CLAY

Israel, national Israel is of the vessels here fitted to destruction…
Romans 11:23 KJV 1900
And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
If the vessel is marred He can make it again
Now the reason He endures vessels, whom He knows will never Trust or turn to Him, why did He endure Pharaoh? So that His name might be declared throughout all the Earth.
How can His name be declared? Through the riches of His glory, i.e. His mercy,

No man can Question the Decisions of God

IS it right for me to wonder why I came from a lost home and someone in here may have grown up in a Christian home? God why was I born in the middle east while these children here were allowed to grow up in a place like New Zealand?
2 CORINTHIANS 4
FITTED TO DESTRUCTION
Israel, national Israel is of the vessels here fitted to destruction…
Romans 11:23 KJV 1900
And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.

Hosea

Now the reason He endures vessels, whom He knows will never Trust or turn to Him, why did He endure Pharaoh? So that His name might be declared throughout all the Earth.

Isaiah

Everyone is offered Grace from God

How can His name be declared? Through the riches of His glory, i.e. His mercy,
