24 For if thou wert cut out of the Oliue tree which is wilde by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good Oliue tree: how much more shall these which be the naturall branches, bee graffed into their owne Oliue tree?
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should bee ignorant of this mysterie (least yee should bee wise in your owne conceits) that blindnesse in part is happened to Israel, vntill the fulnes of the Gentiles be come in.

God is too great for us to understand with the human mind. We will never be able to understand his actions and so by faith we live, breath and have our being. Through Him we move through this earth doing what is that perfect and acceptable will of God. To him I give all glory, honor and praise.
Prophet TGordon's Romans Chapter 11 comment on 8/24/2012, 7:39pm...
I believe some of Paul's writings is dealing with Israel under the old covenant, while it was still active. However, when the New Better Covenant was established Israel was placed under a new agreement. In the new agreement those who are chosen according to election embrace Jesus as LORD and Savior. Remember, in the new covenant there are no Jews or Gentiles; only saints. Eph. 2:1- The covenant Paul speaks of is the new covenant and it is within that covenant the nation of Israel is covered. Also, the wild olive branch [other nations]are grafted into the new covenant through the blood of Jesus Christ, according to the promise made to Abraham. 'In thy seed shall the nations of the earth be blessed. (Gen 22:18)Finally, I believe Paul is speaking to two different kinds of people 1 natural Israel and spiritual Israel. Natural Israel must believe and once they believe they are pulled into the new better covenant becoming citizens of heaven. Remember, the body of Christ is totally different from the world.

ROMANS 11:1-6 COMMENTARY
TCHINDA FABRICE MBUNA
Saint Paulís writing to the Romans present us with another challenging theology to deal with. The whole concept which is conveyed throughout this passage can be classified under REMNANT THEOLOGY. Yes, I strongly believe that God is a God of dispensation who works in TIME and SEASON. See Galatians 4:4, Ephesians 1:10. The time line of the history of divine providence from the day of the fall of the First Adam has been that of restoration and the preservation of the remnant of the children of Israel. Despite the providential struggle for restoration and preservation of the remnant of Israel, God has been working through CONVENANT THEOLOGY. In each historical age of the dispensation of restoration, God had always made himself manifest to his children through what I called COVENANT. That is why we cannot really disassociate DISPENSATIONAL THEOLOGY, CONVENANT THEOLOGY, and REMNANT THEOLOGY:
Saint Paul in Romans 11:5 is trying to convey a transcendent Truth about God which is through the GRACE of God, a remnant will always be preserved in all generations, irrespective of the circumstances. The word remnant itself should not only be understood within the light of all those who are being saved or the kept aside by the LORD, but the word remnant should be understood with the mindset of those whom God has chosen as an instrument to save the lost. The word remnant does not necessarily mean that they are those whom has chosen through his Unconditional Election to go to heaven. For example, in the days of Joseph, he was chosen as a remnant to preserve his brothers from the great famine which was to later befall the land. See Genesis 42. In the case of Joseph, we can see that he was unconditionally chosen by Godís election of Grace, and by means of this divine election of grace, his salvation was assured by God himself but his being chosen was for the preservation for the remnant that was to go through moments of hardship.
This again takes us to another argument in the book of Revelation 7:4-8 where in every twelve tribe in Israel God had or God has preserved at least twelve thousand people to be saved. If we have to make a multiplication of the twelve thousand people by the twelve tribes of Israel, that God had or has preserved in history, then we will come to the conclusion of having 144,000 remnant preserved as it is described in the book of Revelation 14:1- Does it mean that only 144,000 people are going to heaven? I say no. why? This is how I explicate myself. This 144,000 people stands for the remnant which God has kept for himself which he will use to work out the salvation of those who have not yet been saved so that through them others will be saved and come to the complete knowledge of the saving grace of God. If we can logically agree with Genesis 42 that Joseph was sent into Egypt because God in his master plan wanted to use him to preserve the remnant that was going to survive the famine, then it is obvious that the 144,000 people have the same providential role to play like Joseph.
In conclusion, the theology of Unconditional Election has never really meant to mean God has chosen others to be saved while he has predestined others for perdition. It does not suffice quoting the story of Esau and Jacob, but one thing remains certain that anybody who has been uncondionally set apart by Godís Unconditional Grace is only a bridge through whom the unsaved are saved. E.g, Esther.
Maria Concepcion Alvarez-Alcantara's Romans Chapter 11 comment about verse 29 on 5/02/2012, 2:16am...
The word "without repentance"(KJV) or irrevocable "(NIV)would direct to the only purpose why the Lord Jesus Christ was sent by His father and that is to REDEEM those who were under the law (the Jews)Gal.4:4-5...Redemption of a thing is unconditional if the owner is committed to buy back the thing he loves, be it defective or not as long as he loves it. The gentiles do not fall on this verse..John 3:16 applies to all people who believes in Jesus Christ so that by faith in Jesus Christ they could be grafted on the branches of the olive tree.In Ezekiel 36..God said it is not for the sake of His People but for the sake of His name which was profaned by His chosen people, God will sprinkle water on their faces to cleanse them, that is why even "without repentance" God would still redeem His people.
Memeshay's Romans Chapter 11 comment on 7/01/2011, 11:59am...
When we fully understand how much God loves His creation to have sent his only begotten Son to bring salvation to us all - then we must understand that He would indeed leave a "remnant" (vs 5) until His Son,Jesus, returns again! Amen. He will not abandon His love - that would be us - even though the nations defy His existance - religions discredit Him - and people mock Him in their belief (not His) of who He really is and what He really wants from His children. Simply put - we must serve Him in His fullness, in His Glory, and in His love. Be Blessed!!
Constance Matthews's Romans Chapter 11 comment on 6/30/2011, 9:46am...
Looking at people as they are today; sometimes it looks like GOD has cast us away. GOD has not cast us away. People have fell from their first love which is to be GOD. We have the spirit of slumber, eyes that cannot see, ears that cannot hear that the Spirit of the LORD is trying to reveal himself to us. Riches and power, tangible things have become our GOD'S. They cause us to fall from the grace of GOD. He does not want us to be cast away, he wants us to look up and live. We should boast not in ourselves, but in the LORD; who shed his blood on the cross to save us from our sins. Jesus is come that we might be saved from ungodliness, but men have gone about to establish their own rightousness. GOD is yet having mercy on the unbelievers. We must seek his face and (turn from our wicked ways) then he will hear from heaven and thus heal the land. We do not know the debth of his love for us and we will never understand his ways. If we give of ourselves and our first fruits (being tithes and offerings) to the church he will again give back to us. We were created for his Glory. We need to realize that all that we are and all that we have is already his. TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE THINGS HE HAS DONE, IS DOING AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO; GOD REIGNS FOREVER; AMEN

33O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable [are] his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
This reminds me of analysing poetry in english class. There are so many layers to God's word. I am amazed that even if there is a verse that I have heard for the millionth time I can still take something out of it.
David E. Pitts's Romans Chapter 11 comment about verse 6 on 12/01/2010, 7:20pm...
If you base your salvation on anything that man can change by a vote of your church denomination, then your professed salvation is not of God. Only Godís grace and what Jesus did at the Cross (the Gospel) can save a manís soul.
