DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
All Israel Will Be Saved
The rejection of Israel is neither total nor final. All Jews who turn to accept Jesus as Saviour are easily grafted into the salvation program. The time the Jews rejected Jesus was a window of opportunity for Gentiles to partake in the salvation program. The phrase “until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” is interpreted by some Bible scholars to mean that there will come a time when the window of opportunity will be closed for Gentiles. This would imply that a non-Jew should not take it for granted that he can procrastinate giving his life to Christ, since no man knows when that window will close. After that, the window will fully be opened for the Jews to clearly see that God had actually sent the Messiah, Jesus, whom they have so far rejected. The spirit of stupor that has so far covered their eyes will then be taken away and they will turn to Jesus for salvation.
Point of Emphasis: And so all Israel will be saved.
Prayer Point: Father, open the eyes of our loved ones who are still afflicted by the spirit of stupor.
