The Mystery of God’s Divine Plan Fulfilled

Passage: Romans 11:11-12

  1. Why does the failure of Israel lead to salvation of the Gentiles?
    • Gen 12:3 – I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
    • Ps 22:27 – All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you.
    • Zech. 2:11 – And many nations shall join themselves to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people. And I will dwell in your midst, and you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you.
    • Rom 6:1-5 – What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.
  2. Why does God arouse jealousy to bring about repentance of His people?
    • Ex 20:5 – You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God
    • Zech. 1:14 – I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion.
    • 2 Cor 11:2 – I feel a divine jealousy for you, for I betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.
    • Deut. 32:21 – They have made me jealous with what is no god; they have provoked me to anger with their idols. So I will make them jealous with those who are no people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
