The Gentiles are the wild olive tree, and Israel is the natural olive tree. The church does not replace Israel. What benefit do the Gentiles in the church receive since they do not replace Israel? The best blessing they receive is salvation. This is achieved by them being grafted into the same spiritual Olive Tree. But, the Gentile Christians will not bring in the Messiah’s kingdom with their peace talks! King Jesus will bring about the final solution to the Israeli and Palestinian conflict, by His own power!
Romans 11:1 “I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.” Romans 11:11-26 “I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. 12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? 13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: 14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. 15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? 16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. 17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. 20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. 24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree? 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. 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:”
Paul told these Roman Gentiles that he was a seed from Abraham. He was an Israelite according to the flesh. He was living proof that God was not through with Israel, Romans 11:1. The liberals want to make it look like the church is doing Israel a favor. But, in truth, Israel has made salvation possible for those Gentiles who are in the church, Romans 11:11. Gentiles have had great opportunities to be saved during this Time of the Gentiles. The riches of Heaven that the Jews could have had are being heaped up for the Gentile believers. The Time of the Gentiles appears to be fast coming to its fullness. At the beginning of the seven-year Tribulation, prophesied by Daniel, Israel will be grafted into the Olive Tree again so that it can complete its fullness, Romans 11:12. Paul continued to persuade Jews to be saved, Romans 11:14. Israel was cast aside for awhile as a nation, but they will sprout to life from the dead again, Romans 11:15. Jesus is the root that makes both Jews and Gentiles holy, Isaiah 11:10. The firstfruits came at Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came to regenerate believers. The Jews are the branches that first grew from the root of the Olive Tree, Romans 11:16. The branches of Israel were broken off so that the wild olive tree branches could be grafted in. The wild olive tree branches represent Gentile believers. The Gentiles get to benefit from being on the root with Israel, Romans 11:17. The root, Jesus, saves the Gentiles and allows them to be saved, just like Israel was saved. Gentiles are not doing Israel a favor. The Word of God was provided to Gentiles by Jewish prophets. The Jews did Gentiles the favor! Don’t get puffed up, Romans 11:18! Some of Israel was broken off because of unbelief. Gentiles need to be thankful for salvation and love the Jews. Be carful of pride. It comes before a fall, Romans 11:19, 20. One day, God will end the Time of the Gentiles. Everyday, Gentiles die without knowing Jesus as their personal Saviour. These dead, lost Gentiles are cast into the fires of Hell, Romans 11:21. Right now, the Gentiles are seeing the goodness of God, but one day, they will see the severity of God, Romans 11:22. Jews have made a lot of mistakes, but the Gentile nations have made even more. They serve many different gods around the world. At the beginning of the seven-year Tribulation, Israel will be grafted back into the Olive Tree, as stated earlier. They are the natural branch, not the Gentiles. The Time of the Gentiles will end, and God will once again work more directly with Israel, Romans 11:23-25. When Jesus comes back, near the end of the seven-year Tribulation, the remaining remnant of Israel will be saved, Romans 11:26.
Ezekiel 47:21-23 “So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes of Israel. 22 And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. 23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.”
Is it possible that the Gentile believers will get to share some of the land with Israel? At least, God told Israel to share the land with believers who joined them in the past. But, Israel will still be in charge of the land. The Promised Land is the inheritance of the Jews, not the Gentiles!
Isaiah 56:3 “Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.”
God told the Jews to share and fellowship with a stranger, Gentile, who became a believer in the coming Saviour. Even though Jesus had not come yet, they trusted that He would. But, unbelieving Gentiles were never permitted by God to share the land with Israel. God did not want them to have unbelieving Gentiles in Israel because they would corrupt Israel. In the future, most Palestinians will not be allowed to live on the land in Israel because they do not believe in the God of Israel. Gentile believers, from the church, may be allowed to live on the land of Israel, but that will be a privilege, not a requirement.
It is not like the Gentile believers will be cheated by God. Gentiles will get to reap many of the benefits of salvation. The land of Israel will only be a small portion of the land in the world. Most of the land in the world during the Messiah’s thousand-year reign will be like Paradise. In eternity, the whole world will be like Paradise. When time turns into eternity, it is possible that many of the planets will be turned into Paradise. They may all be a part of God’s eternal kingdom. The wild Olive Tree, the Gentiles of the church, will be planted in an eternal Paradise! The Palestinian Christians have no reason to lust after the land promised to Israel. King Jesus will provide Paradise for the church in eternity! As mentioned at the end of the last article, the Gentiles in the church can support God’s final solution to the Israeli and Palestinian conflict in several ways. Again, the Gentiles in the church can do their part by: winning Jews to Jesus, praying for them, supporting them financially, and by standing up for them instead of against them. The Gentiles in the church will reap many benefits from God’s final solution to the conflict. Of course, the greatest benefit for Gentiles is to receive salvation, as proclaimed by Jewish prophets of the Old Testament!
