What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded. Romans 11:7

The previous verses were speaking of grace being grace – unmerited favor apart from works. This is the state of the remnant Jews who are a part of God’s election.… Read the rest

And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. Romans 11:6

Paul has just stated that a remnant of Jews had been reserved “according to the election of grace.” The conclusion, because this is written by Paul who is the apostle to the gentiles, is that this must be something that wasn’t unique to his time alone, but for the entire time to which his letters apply – meaning the church age.… Read the rest

But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” Romans 11:4

In response to Elijah concerning his plea against Israel, God returns an answer – not through the strong wind, the earthquake, or the fire, but through a still small voice.… Read the rest

“Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life”? Romans 11:3

This quote is taken from 1 Kings 19:10. However, Paul amends it somewhat to meet his purposes for our instruction. Here is the exact quote of that verse –

“So he said, ‘I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword.… Read the rest
