Romans 11:1-5 Joshua 22

1 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. 2 God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah–how he appealed to God against Israel: 3 “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”? 4 And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace.

  1. I love how Paul uses the OT as an example and teaches the people in this book. REmember that the Jews are intimately familiar with the Old Testament and the history of the Jews.

    We need to be deeply familiar with the Word so that we can speak truth into people’s lives. If we try to rely on our own wisdom and logic, we will fail.

    The issue here is that the Jews are still confused as to why so many of the Gentiles are responding to the Gospel and the Jews do not seem to be accepting the Messiah. There are several reasons why this could be: (1) God’s sovereign plan (2) Satan is attacking the Jews harder with deception because he knows they are his chosen people

    Either way, Paul reminds us that God will always have a remnant who knows truth and seeks after God.

    Who is the REMNANT in COFY?????????????

  2. I think it is talking to me about faith in a since. Not to give up even when it seems like there is no one there, but God had told Jesus there was 7,000 people out there that haven’t bowed to Baal, that he isn’t the only one out there. Just like in our battles it seems were all alone and we are out there in the desert,but we turn to people that won’t help us in our battle the spritual way but the worldly way. Truth of the matter is that we need to pray and seek God. Not just to get over our battles and put him away in our “box” and take him out when we need him, but to actually use him in everything we do. It might seem like the little things that we use him for but that is what helps us get closer to God and to bulid your relationship with him in our day to day walk with him.

  3. i look at Elijahs response to the killing of prophets and he gets a bit selfish–God what about my life, I am gonna die too—But God always has a plan and course of action…And He always uses people, individuals who love Him and are living According to Him…the key is putting away selfish ambitions, desires and wills…Letting God be God and following Him…Those are the remnants…Question posed by Rick still stands—Who is the Remnant in COFY?
