Romans 11:25, For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
Why has blindness in part happened to Israel? It says it in verses 20, 23, 30, and 32; because of unbelief.
I think that many times when we think of time we picture a clock with the hands going around. When we read things like, “the fullness of the gentiles be come in” we tend to think of a TIME when that will happen and again we picture that clock and I think we expect it to happen when the big hand hits a certain number and it all happens suddenly. In other words, I think we are waiting on some “event” to take place.
I don’t believe it works that way. I believe it is like the frog in boiling water, it happens over time and we may not recognize it for what it is.
America, which has been the leading gentile supporting nation of Israel for many years, is headed a different Before we were even an official nation, the Holy Bible was taught in the colonies, it was taught in early America, it was even taught up through the 1940s and 50s in our schools. In fact in the early history of our country, the King James Bible was the school book children used to learn history, to learn to read, and of course to learn right form wrong.
Here is what I am seeing; Israel’s eyes are being opened and America is being blinded. Why, because of unbelief. I have been in many churches over the past few years and when I share with them some of the revelations God has given, there are those that get so excited they just about can’t contain themselves, they are hungry and they want more. Then there are those who have that “dear in the headlights” look.
Blindness in part has come to Israel until the fullness of the gentiles be come in. What I’m saying is the fullness of the gentiles is coming in now folks, it is happening right in front of our eyes. Jews are being saved and the world and even half the church is blind. The fullness of the gentiles is happening now and time will be up before very long.
Oh but just as only part of Israel was blinded and God saved a remnant, only part of the gentiles will be blinded and there is a remnant of the church. These are the ones God is calling to higher purpose, a higher level. It is those who are going to leave the traditional Church setting and join with groups of believers who are hungry for God, hungry for His Word, hungry and thirsty for righteousness, hungry for real prayer, real worship, real love.
How will a New Testament fellowship work today? We are all different, we have different like and dislikes, we have different hobbies and interests. So how do we love each other and get along? We don’t have to have anything else in common but if we have Jesus in our hearts, if He is our joy, if He is our delight then we are going to have all we need in common.
