GOD's PLAN of SALVATION

 

Romans 11:33

King James Version

33 O the depth of the riches 

both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! 

how unsearchable are his judgments, 

and his ways past finding out!


If you're a student of SPIRIT like me, you'd marvel at GOD's mind.

You'd marvel at the heart, and intricacy of His plans.

Such as His plan for our SALVATION.

For both Jew, and Gentile alike.

For this cause, GOD causes Israel to "slumber", temporarily:

Romans 11:8

King James Version

8 (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.


Romans 11:15

King James Version

15 For if the casting away of them be 

the reconciling of the world, 

what shall the receiving of them be, 

but life from the dead?


Romans 11:32

King James Version

32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, 

that he might have mercy upon all.


So that Gentiles can have a chance at salvation, too.

The following verses are addressed to Gentiles:

Romans 11:11

King James Version

11 I say then, 

Have they stumbled that they should fall? 

God forbid: 

but rather through their fall 

salvation is come unto the Gentiles, 

for to provoke them to jealousy.


Romans 11:17

King James Version

17 And if some of the branches be broken off, 

and thou, 

being a wild olive tree, 

wert grafted in among them, 

and with them partakest of the root 

and fatness of the olive tree;


Romans 11:19

King James Version

19 Thou wilt say then, 

The branches were broken off, 

that I might be grafted in.


Romans 11:25

King James Version

25 For I would not, 

brethren, 

that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, 

lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; 

that blindness in part is happened to Israel, 

until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.


Romans 11:28

King James Version

28 As concerning the gospel, 

they are enemies for your sakes: 

but as touching the election, 

they are beloved for the father's sakes.


Romans 11:30

King James Version

30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, 

yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:


Romans 11:31

King James Version

31 Even so have these also now not believed, 

that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.


GOD's plan of temporarily keeping the Jews "asleep", gives us Gentiles, a fair chance at salvation, too.

Just shows how much love, grace, and mercy GOD has, for all of us -- Jews, and Gentiles, alike.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.


Of course, apostle Paul cautions Gentiles against boasting:

Romans 11:20

King James Version

20 Well; 

because of unbelief they were broken off, 

and thou standest by faith. 

Be not highminded, but fear:


Romans 11:21

King James Version

21 For if God spared not the natural branches, 

take heed lest he also spare not thee.


Romans 11:22

King James Version

22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: 

on them which fell, severity; 

but toward thee, goodness, 

if thou continue in his goodness: 

otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.


Romans 11:24

King James Version

24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree 

which is wild by nature, 

and wert grafted contrary to nature 

into a good olive tree: 

how much more shall these, 

which be the natural branches, 

be grafted into their own olive tree?


GOD's objective?

Romans 11:26

King James Version

26 And so all Israel shall be saved: 

as it is written, 

There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, 

and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:


Romans 11:23

King James Version

23 And they also, 

if they abide not still in unbelief, 

shall be grafted in: 

for God is able to graft them in again.


2 Peter 3:9

King James Version

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.
