THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE ROMANS

CHAPTER 11


GRAFTING OLIVE TREE

GRAFTING OLIVE TREE STUDY ON GRAFTING OLIVE TREE MEANING WITH GRAFTING OLIVE TREE MESSAGE

          Happy to have you back again to share more Daily Bread. In the last chapter of Paulís letter, he was expressing his hope for the people of Israel to see the light of Jesus. He explained how they were very passionate for God, but that those who fail to recognize Jesus as the Son of God, would lose the promise.

          There are many religions that teach that Jesus is not the Son of God, that donít believe in the Holy Trinity, or that say that Jesus was just a prophet, yet they claim they believe in God. Friends, Jesus is part of God, so if you donít believe in Jesus, youíre denying part of God. How do you think your Father feels about that? Add to that, the part about how He sent Jesus to suffer so that we could be forgiven for our sins and live forever with Him for the simple price of having Faith in Him, and that should make it easy to understand how denying Jesus would be a righteous reason for God to deny anyone who didnít believe in His precious Son.

          This is a rather lengthy chapter, so Iíll try and make it as clear as possible within the text itself, and not so much adlibbing so that you can complete it in a reasonable amount of time. Now letís continue with what Paul was saying.


I ask you then, Has God cast away His people (Israelites)? God forbid.
For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
God has not cast away His people which He knew before.
Donít you know what Elijah said in the scripture?
How he makes intercession to God against Israel saying,

1 Kings 19:10
And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

But what was Godís answer to him?

1 Kings 19:18
Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

Even now there is a remnant (small amount remaining)*
according to the election of Grace (who God has chosen).
And if by Grace, then is it no longer of works, otherwise Grace is no longer Grace.
But if it be of works, then it is no longer Grace, otherwise work is no longer work.
 

           *Remember we talked about this earlier in Paulís letter, that God didnít leave Israel such a countless amount of people, because of what might happen? We used the Tower of Babel as an example. So, you just found out now, that the remnant was once as little as seven thousand people.

GRAFTING OLIVE TREE LESSON WITH GRAFTING OLIVE TREE EXPLANATION
 

So, what does that mean?
Israel hasnít obtained the kingdom of God, which it searches for,
but Godís chosen (seven thousand) had obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
(Just as it is written, God has given them the spirit of slumber,
eyes that they should not see,
and ears that they should not hear) until this day.
 

Isaiah 29:10
For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.

And David said:

Psalms 69:22-23
 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.


I ask then, Is salvation hopeless for them because of their stumbling?
God forbid.
But rather because of their fall,
salvation is available to the Gentiles,
in order to provoke them to jealousy.
Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world,
and the failure of them the riches of the Gentiles;
how much more their fullness?
 

What does this mean? Well, if the Jewish people see that the Gentiles are inheriting what was once promised to them, it will make them jealous, and hopefully cause them to accept Jesus as their Savior in order to regain the promise.


For I speak to you Gentiles, since
I am the Apostle of the Gentiles,
if by any means I may provoke to jealousy them which are my flesh,
and might save some of them, I am a credit to my ministry.
For if the rejection of them, causes the reconciling of the world,
what shall the acceptance of them be, but life for the dead?
 

          Letís take a little intermission from Paulís letter for a moment, to have a little Daily Bread Crumb. Do you know what grafting is? To graft is to connect something that wasnít originally connected. Letís talk about a tree for example, because Paul is going to be using a tree in his analogy in a moment, of how the Gentiles have become connected to the Lord. If a branch is broken from a tree, you can make a clean cut at the break, then another branch can be cut off a different tree, at the same angle, and fitted onto the broken spot, then attached together. Sap will then flow through to the new branch, and it will become part of the tree. In Paulís example, the Gentiles are wild olive trees, and the Israelites are good olive trees.


For if the first fruits are holy,
(Godís first fruits are the Israelites, or the olive trees)
the entire tree is also holy:
and if the root be holy,
so are the branches.
And if some of the branches are broken off,
and you, being a wild olive tree,
be grafted in among them,
and with them partake of the root and strength of the olive tree;
donít boast (brag) against the branches.
Because if you boast, remember, you donít sustain the root,
but the root sustains you.
You will say then,
The branches were cut off (rejected),
that I might be grafted (fitted) in.
Well, because of unbelief they were broken off,
and you stand by Faith.
Donít be proud, but be humble.
Because if God didnít spare the natural branches
(the Jewish people),
be careful, He may also not spare you.
Notice the goodness and the severity of God:
on those who fell, severity,
but toward you, goodness,
if you continue in His goodness,
otherwise you also shall be cut off.
And if they donít remain unbelieving,
they shall be grafted in, because God is able to graft them in again.
For if you were cut out of an olive tree which is wild by nature,
and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree,
how much more easily shall these, which are the natural branches,
be grafted into their own olive tree?
I want you to understand this mystery,
so you wonít be wise in your own proud ideas.
Blindness (hardness, stubbornness) in part has happened to Israel,
until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in
(until the time of the Gentiles is completed)
.
 

THE TIME OF THE GENTILES BEGAN AT THE TIME OF JESUS
AND WILL CONTINUE UNTIL HIS RETURN.
 

In this way, all Israel shall be saved: as it is written,
There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer,
and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 

Psalms 14:7
Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
Isaiah 59:20-21
And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.
Isaiah 27:9
By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up.

 As concerning the Gospel, they are enemies for your sakes:
but concerning the election (the chosen people of God),
they are beloved for the father's sakes.
 

Deuteronomy 7:8
But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

GRAFTING OLIVE TREE INFORMATION WITH GRAFTING OLIVE TREE DISCUSSION

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
For as you in times past have not believed God,
(during the Time of the Jewish people)
yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief (in Jesus):
In the same way, have these also now not believed,
that through the mercy shown to you,
they also may obtain mercy.
For God has concluded (confined) them all in unbelief,
that He might have mercy upon all.
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!
For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been His counselor?
(Who has given Him advice?)
Or who has first given something to Him, that it shall be repaid to him again?
 

Job 41:11
Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.

 For of Him, and through Him, and to Him,
are all things:
to whom be glory for ever.
Amen.
 

          Unsearchable is a perfect word that Paul used to describe Godís judgments. Heís fair and just, to everyone. Even though He says, I choose who I want, and I donít choose who I donít want, youíll always find that Heís righteous and true. How many times has He been gracious to you? Be sure and thank Him.

          You know, a lot of times there are scripture passages given that verify whatís being discussed in Daily Bread. It might be a great idea, if you only have a certain amount of time each day to devote to Daily Bread, you could keep some sticky notes by your computer and jot down the scripture passages, then later on, look them up. Itís a good refresher for what you read earlier in the day and it will enhance your understanding too.  These studies are so helpful and enriching and the more you learn, the more interesting the Bible becomes. Try it!

          When we come back, weíll have more of Paulís letter to the Romans, so hurry back, and weíll share more Daily Bread.
