Straightforward Alfred: Did all Natural Israel (as you say) enter into heaven? Your answer must be some. If some entered heaven - how? They believed God. Is there more than one way of salvation? No, it is all of grace through Christ. The way and faith of Abraham ALWAYS represented true spiritual Israel and it is the faith that Christians should hold today. Anything else, demeans Christ.
Great Sermon! Mr. Casey please explain, Are you saying that the church (Jew and Gentile) has replaced the natural Israel? That he Church is now spiritual Israel? That the church has or will become ALL Israel? If this true, then why would the natural branches (Israel) be regraffed in to the natural olive tree? Any way you interpret Romans 11, there are two separate branches that will be graffed into the same olive tree, one wild and one natural with the same root. And that root which is Abraham.
Great Sermon! Dear Jim,
We are rejoicing in the Gospel that you are preaching from Romans 12. This is the one True Gospel, we know of no other.
We rejoice in the Righteousness of our Lord and Savior and we never fail to hear it here. Thanks
Great Sermon! A very good word. The word imputated/Imputation became precious to me when I was brought to grasp the invaluable implication to my eternal soul. I cannot comprehend why anyone would reject this precious doctrine in truth. Thank you.
Great Sermon! What a blessing to my soul. Opening my understanding of what it really means to put on the new man!
Bearing fruit, not growing the fruit, but bearing, because without Christ we can do nothing! Amen, Amen!
