ISRAEL - GOD'S MIRACLE NATION star97.jpg

CHAPTER TEN

Israel's Coming Salvation

Israel is God's miracle nation because of its coming salvation.

Zechariah prophesied concerning the final salvation of Israel:
And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son (Zechariah 12:10 NIV).

On that day a fountain will be opened to the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity (Zechariah 13:1 NIV).

In the book of Romans, Paul explains to us the role of Israel in God's plan of salvation:
I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. God did not reject his people whom he foreknew (Romans 11:1, 2 NIV).
He tells us that the unbelief of Israel is partial and for a season:
Again I ask, Did they stumble so as to fail beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring! (Romans 11:11,12 NIV).
Then he continued:
I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies on your account; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable (Romans 11:25-29 NIV).
This is the time of Jesus Christ's second coming, when the Israelites will look at him and recognize that He is the One whom they have pierced. At that time, all Israel shall be saved.

We must realize that these words simply cannot be applied to a "spiritual" Israel. They can only be applied to physical Israel.
