GAL 6:5 For each one shall bear his own load.
PSA 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for Thou art with me;
Pain, suffering, death are three tests for your perception of Bible doctrine.
But when these things occur and when the United States is suffering, and when we are possibly going to live long enough to see the beginning of sorrows, in MAT 24:8, you must remember the principles of doctrine you have learned.
When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ass, it always comes back to bite you.
Romans 9, 10, and 11 are a parenthesis.
1 - Israel in part is selected, Romans 9.
2 - Israel at present is rejected, Romans 10.
3 - Israel in the future is accepted, Romans 11.
We are going to call Romans 9, The Jewish Problem.
Israel’s present discipline does not hinder Israel’s glorious future.
The postponement of the dispensation of Israel, the insertion of the Church-age, by intercalation, does not prevent the conclusion of the dispensation of Israel, nor their glorious future in the Millennium as well as in eternity. Intercalation means insertion. The Jewish dispensation was interrupted by the insertion of a new dispensation.
1. The racial uniqueness of the Jew. All four post-diluvian (after the flood) races began with those persons who had adjusted to the justice of God at salvation.All four post-diluvian races began with born-again persons, Shem, Ham, Japheth, and Abraham.
Shem, Ham, Japheth and Abraham are all the sources of all Gentiles on the face of the earth.
Abraham is the source of both Gentiles and Jews. Shem, Ham, Japheth, these are the source of all Gentile peoples. But from Shem comes also the Jews, from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
While Abraham had a brother named Nahor, who is a Gentile, Abraham became the first Jew at the moment of salvation adjustment to the justice of God and maturity adjustment to the justice of God in ultra super-grace.
EXO 14:13 Do not fear! Stand by and see the deliverance of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today;
PSA 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
When Abraham became a Jew at the moment of his circumcision, he was a mature believer.
His brother Nahor was an unbeliever and remained a Gentile.
Abraham had seven sons, the first two are in focus; the eldest son was Ishmael who was a Gentile, but the youngest son was Isaac.
Ishmael is Semitic, and Arabic, but he is not Jewish.
So to prove that, we go down to the next generation where you have twins, from Rebecca: Isaac’s twins Jacob and Esau
