Romans 9:1-33

Israel's Past, Present & Future

  • Paul is dismayed over Israel's missing its Messiah.
  • His heart is filled with bitter sorrow & unending grief.
  • He said that he would be willing to be cut off from Christ if it would save the people of Israel.
  • Israel had had God's Shekinah glory, the covenants, the services of God and the promises & yet were still living under the law.
  • This was all part of God's sovereign plan.
  • Had God failed Israel? Certainly not!!
  • Paul tells that no one is truly Israel unless he is governed by God.
  • Our greatest mistake when thinking of the choices of God is that God choices are arbitrary, as if He is just randomly choosing. We cannot fathom God's reasoning. God's choices are not moody or illogical. He has a plan and a reason for everything.
  • He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.
  • As He says in Hosea, "I will call them My people, who were not My people, and her beloved, who was not beloved."
  • In Isaiah 10:23 7 1:9, it declares God's right to choose a remnant among Israel for salvation.
  • Why is Israel in its present state? Israel missed the Messiah because they refused to come by faith.
  • Faith is the key which is why God turned to the Gentiles.
  • Paul has shown that the only possible way to be saved is through faith, not the works of the law. And that this salvation comes only through the work of a crucified Savior which was a stumbling block to Israel - 1 Corinthians 1:22-23.
Proverbs 29:18 - Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Subject: "From Bad News to Break-through!"

  • God is the only one who can bring something good out of something bad.
  • Just hold onto God's unchanging hand.
  • God has a bigger plan for us.
  • For we walk by faith not by sight.
  • Nehemiah asked the question, "How are things really?"
  • Genesis is the beginning to a break through or a comeback.
  • From difficulty to determination; from pain to purpose; from tragedy to empowerment.
  • Be ye transformed
  • Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die like everyone else, will live again. They are given eternal life for believing in me and will never perish. John 11:25-26
  • Our break-through - faith; relationship with God through Jesus, & belief in the resurrection.
  • God is with us even in our tragedy.
  • For His anger endures but a moment; in His favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalms 30:5
