SPIRIT OF PROMISE


THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE ROMANS

CHAPTER 9


THE
WORD OF PROMISE
BIBLE EXPLAINED

THE WORD OF PROMISE BIBLE STUDY ON THE WORD OF PROMISE BIBLE MEANING WITH THE WORD OF PROMISE BIBLE MESSAGE

          Welcome back! Itís a pleasure having you here for more Daily Bread. Well, weíre halfway through Paulís letter to the Romans already! In this part of Paulís letter, weíve got sort of a little lesson of Whoís Who. Paul tells us that just because someone is born an Israelite, that doesnít guarantee them anything.

          He begins by saying how sad he is for his kinsmen (the Israelites) that believe they automatically get privileges because of their heritage.


God chose them for the adoption
(becoming the chosen people of God, or Godís children),
the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, the promises.
 They are the family that the fathers were from (the descendants of Abraham),
And of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came,
who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
Not as though the Word of God hath taken none effect.
For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel
(they donít all have the Faith that Israel had, just because they were born of Israel).
Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children,
but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
Genesis 21:12
That means, they which are the children of the flesh
are not the children of God,
but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

THE PROMISE

For this is the Word of promise,
At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son.
Genesis 18:10
And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by our father Isaac
(For the children being not yet born,
neither having done any good or evil,
that the purpose of God according to His choosing might remain,
not of works, but of Him that calls),
it was said to her, The elder shall serve the younger.
Genesis 25:23
As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Malachi 1:2-3
What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God?
God forbid. For he said to Moses,
I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy,
and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
Exodus 33:19


So then it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs
(it doesnít matter if a person wishes or pursues for Godís calling),
but of God that shows mercy.
For the scripture said to Pharaoh,
For this same purpose have I raised you up
(put you in a high position),
that I might show my power in you,
and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
Exodus 9:16
Therefore He has mercy on whom He will have mercy,
and whom He will, He makes stubborn.

THE WORD OF PROMISE BIBLE LESSON WITH THE WORD OF PROMISE BIBLE EXPLANATION

          So, whatís the message weíre supposed to derive from this? Like Paul said from the beginning, it doesnít matter who you are, what matters is if God chooses you. Shucks, you could be Isaacís son and not be chosen, as youíve seen, or, you could be someone who persecutes Christians, and be chosen, as Paul was. It doesnít matter who you are. Paul goes on:


Youíll say to me then, Why does the Lord still find fault?
For who has resisted his will?
No but, O man, who are you that talks back to God?
Shall the thing formed say to Him that formed it,
Why have you made me this way?
Doesnít the potter have power over the clay,
of the same lump to make one vessel to honor, and another to dishonor?
Proverbs 16:4
What if God, wanting to demonstrate His wrath,
and to make His power known,
put up with much longsuffering from the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
And that He might make known the riches of His glory to the vessels of mercy,
 which He had before prepared for glory,
Which is us, whom He has called,
not of the Jewish only, but also of the Gentiles?
As He also said in Hosea, I will call them my people, which were not my people;
and her beloved, which was not beloved.
Hosea 1:10
And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said to them,
You are not my people;
there shall they be called the children of the living God.
Isaiah also cried concerning Israel,
Though the number of the children of Israel are as the sand of the sea,
a remnant shall be saved, For He will finish the work,
and cut it short in righteousness,
because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
Isaiah 10:22-23
And as Isaiah said before,
If the Lord hadnít made us a small remnant,
we would have been as Sodom,
and would have been made like Gomorrah.
Isaiah 1:9
Isaiah 13:19
 

          What does this mean? Perhaps that if God had left the children of Israel such a massive people, they might have been totally destroyed if God hadnít reduced them to just a small number, when He scattered them during the carrying away into Babylon.

           Funny, this is similar to what happened in Babylon at the very beginning of itís existence. The people grew to thinking that they could reach heaven and make a name for themselves (become famous)(Genesis 11:4).  But God saw that they were up to no good, so he confused their language and scattered them throughout the earth. Maybe the children of Israel were getting a little too close to this manner of thinking, so God took care of business.

THE WORD OF PROMISE BIBLE INFORMATION WITH THE WORD OF PROMISE BIBLE DISCUSSION


What shall we say then?
That the Gentiles, who didnít follow after righteousness,
have attained to righteousness, the righteousness which is of Faith.
But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness,
has not attained to the law of righteousness.
Why?
Because they sought it not by Faith,
but as if it were by the works of the law.
For they stumbled at that stumbling stone;
As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offence:
and whosoever believeth in Him shall not be ashamed.
Isaiah 8:14
Isaiah 28:16
 

          So you see, the Lord, just as He has throughout the ages, judges us by our decisions. He doesnít want a bunch of angels that will choose anything but Him and fall. He doesnít want a bunch of angels that decide they want to be Him, and build a tower that reaches to heaven. He just wants us to be righteous CHILDREN.

          To the Jewish people, Jesus (the stumbling stone) was totally the opposite of law, so you can see why the term stumbling stone is used. The Jewish people who couldnít see the Truth in Him and accept Faith over law, tripped over the stone, they were offended by Him, even though He patiently answered their questions about His doctrine, over and over again, they couldnít see that the things they studied in scripture so diligently, and their long awaited Messiah, was right before their eyes, and they stumbled over Him.

          It looks like God has His own version of Who Is Who, and itís up to us to decide if Jesus is who the Messiah is, or if we choose law instead. Whoís who? Depending on what we choose, will determine whether He will choose us in the end.

          More interesting writing from Paul ahead, so come on back soon, and donít miss it, right here at Daily Bread.
