– One New Man
As we praise God for His unique creation of the One New Man, we also remember the Apostle Paul’s admonition and exhortation to the Gentiles.
Romans 11: 11; 16-22
I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles.
16-22: For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.
You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.
Sadly there are too many God-fearing, Israel loving Christians who are silent, preferring to “show” Israel love rather than proclaiming the greatest love of all – the Gospel of Yeshua. But the witness of love never brought anyone to salvation, only the powerful word of God.
I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
PROCLAIM THAT THE CHURCH WILL PROVOKE ISRAEL TO JEALOUSY AND PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL OF YESHUA TO HER.
