Has God abandoned His kingdom program for Israel? Of course not! Israel is merely set aside
until the time comes for God’s plans for Israel to be fulfilled.
Today the saved Gentiles provoke Israel “to jealousy” because of the spiritual riches they have in
Christ. Israel today is spiritually bankrupt, while Christians have “all spiritual blessings” in
Christ. (But if an unsaved Jewish person visited the average church service, would he be
provoked to jealousy and wish he had what we have—or would he just be provoked?)
There is a future for Israel. Today Israel is fallen spiritually, but when Christ returns, the nation
will rise again. Today, Israel is cast away from God, but one day when Christ establishes His
kingdom on earth, Israel shall be received again. God will never break His covenant with His
people, and he has promised to restore them.
God says: “Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has
come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The deliverer will come from Zion; he
will turn godlessness away from Jacob. And this is My covenant with them when I take away
their sins” (Romans 11:25-27, NIV).
Other Scripture: Jeremiah 31:31-34; Romans 10.
Action assignment: Ask God to help you get a clear understanding of God’s dealing with the
nation Israel and to give you opportunity to tell a Jewish person about Christ, the Messiah.
