SORT BY Relevancy
Romans Chapter 11~
Paul says. God most definitely has not rejected the Jews. After all, they're his peeps. His main squeeze. His chosen crew. Paul should know. He's one of them, after all. He tells us the story of Elijah to demonstrate. When Elijah's whole community had turned against him and started worshipping other gods, God told him that it was cool. See, God still saved a few of those people for himself. A few that hadn't totally gone over to the dark side. The same is true now, Paul says. Some Jews have been chosen for salvation because God is just oh-so-nice like that. It's true. As a whole, the Jews have stumbled a bit when it comes to believing in Jesus. But Paul is careful to note that doesn't mean they've fallen flat on their faces. No sireee. Sure, they did trip over their own feet while they were supposed to be running the ball in for the touchdown. But God hasn't permanently benched them. He's just brought in the second team. Jesus came to bring God's message to the Jews. Now, because the Jews don't all believe in him, God has decided to spread his message out to non-Jews. After all, the Jews are like a tree with holy roots. Each individual person is a branch on that tree. But some of the branches have died and fallen off. In their place, God grafted on some wild olive branches that didn't belong on the tree (the Gentiles) They're growing and fitting in nicely though so it's all good.The one problem is that sometimes these new branches can get a bit cocky. But Paul reminds them not to get too full of themselves. After all, they're not the ones supporting the tree. That's a job for the Jewish roots. Anyway, they only got a spot on the tree because some of the branches fell off. They should be grateful they're even on there. God didn't go easy on the original branches. Thank you www.shmoot.com

Good morning church! Join us as we have our weekly Bible study! Romans Chapter 7.
Paul goes on to talk more about the role of Jewish law. He says that the law only applies to people who are alive, but that Christians are dead to the world and dead to the law. Thus, they don't have to obey all those fussy rules anymore. Sweet! It's kind of like when a man and woman get married—they have to stay faithful to each other. But if the husband dies, all bets are off. Now the wife can remarry and it's a-okay with everyone. Plus, she gets double wedding presents. Basically, Paul's saying that because of Jesus, Jewish law is dead. Christians have remarried and belong with God now. He's their dream guy. Before all that, we were slaves to the law and sin, but now we're free to run barefoot in a meadow with the Holy Spirit. How exhilarating. Now, wait just a second, Paul… it sounds like you're saying Jewish law is sinful. Oh no, Paul explains. You're misunderstanding! The law isn't sinful, but it does point out all kinds of sin to us… making that sin look oh-so delicious. See, if no one had ever said, "Don't steal stuff," would we have even thought of stealing? Um, Paul, you're losing us. Look, the law is good, Paul says. Don't get him wrong. It's doing its best, but really it can't hold a candle to the power of sin. Ooooh, what's the power of sin? Well, it just means that sin has major pull over people. We may try to follow the law and do good things, but we just keep getting drawn back towards doing bad things. Blame it on the sin. See, we're just weak, sad little mortal beings who can't help but do bad things. And sin usually looks pretty good to us. But the good news is, there's someone who can get us off this crazy merry-go-round of sin. You guessed it—it's Jesus! It's always Jesus. Thanks to Shmoop.com

We continue our study on Orthodox Holiness, seeking biblical revelation to God's will. Jesus said "The tree is known by his fruit" What did He really mean? What are the fruit? and How holy is a believer supposed to be? [Mat 12:33 KJV] 33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by [his] fruit.

Good morning church! Today we are reading Romans Chapter #10. Yes, we started at the begining of the Gospels and made it this far. Don't give up now, let's keep going!!!
Hey, don't get Paul wrong. He really wants all the non-Christ loving Jews to be saved. He knows that they really love God, they're just a tiny bit mixed up about a couple important things. For example, Jews mainly focus on the saving power of Jewish law. They think living by the rules of the Torah is going to get them in good with God. Wrong, Paul says. All that is over with. Christ is the law's end all be all. He's the fulfillment of everything it says, in fact. Game. Set. Match. Now, all you have to do is say you believe in Jesus and then actually believe those words in your heart and you're golden. It's that simple. See? There isn't really any difference between Jews and Gentiles. God will save them both… if they only call on him. Okay, but the big problem is that you can't call on someone you don't believe in. We're guessing it's because you keep dialing the wrong number. And why don't the Jews believe? Paul's glad you asked. And now, because the Jewish people have turned their back on the good news, God is giving salvation away to the Gentiles. Meanwhile, the non-believing Jews are being totally disobedient and rude. Come on, guys. Get with the program already. Thanks to www.shmoop.com

If you ask the average Christian to make a distinction between Jesus, Christ and the Holy Spirit, you will probably here "Crickets" (absolute silence)!
Today on P2T, we are going to dissect each person and spirit and tell you why it is critical to the survival of the modern day Christian to ABSOLUTELY know the difference.
Good morning church!!! Today we are reading Romans Chapter 9.
So, everything is good and happy now, right? See, Paul is a Jew who believes in Jesus, but, unfortunately, not all Jews are like him. Even though Jesus and his original followers were Jewish and their message was first given to the Jewish people, Christianity is increasingly becoming a Gentile religion. Jews are just not getting the message. He thinks everyone needs to believe in Jesus—both Jews and Gentiles—so what's going to happen to all the Jews who don't believe? Let's see…First, the Jewish people are obviously very special to God. He gave them the patriarchs and the law and his promises. Tons of good things have come from them. BagelsBut, Paul concludes, the ones who haven't accepted Jesus aren't truly God's people then. This means that being born Jewish isn't enough to get in good with God. You can't just follow God's law; you have to believe in his promise. Paul goes back to Abraham again. Abraham believed God when he promised that he would have a son. And that son, Isaac, was the second born, but God liked him better. Way to play favorites, Lord. The same goes for Rebecca, who had twins, Jacob and Esau. Even though Esau was the first-born, God took a shining to Jacob. He created the world and he can do what he wants with it. When a potter makes a clay bowl, does the bowl start complaining? No. So if God lets evil people be evil in order to show off his wrath, what's it to you? And maybe God smiles on certain people sometimes. He can totally do that if he wants to. Even the Bible says that God loves non-Jews and that not all Jews are going be saved. We're sure that's in there somewhere. Some Gentiles, who weren't trying to do right by God, have now ended up believing. Some Jews, who are supposed to be doing what God asks, have rejected him. A special thanks to www.shmoop.com
