ISRAEL & THE NATIONS
ROMANS 11:7, 11-26
7, What, then, Israel has not obtained what he craves, but the election has obtained [spiritual experiences through the Spirit of God], and the rest were blinded.
11, I am saying, then, [that] it is absolutely not true [that Israel] failed to overcome [their pride so that Christ] could come into existence [within] themselves. On the contrary, [Leviathan], their other self, side-stepped [preaching] salvation to the Gentiles [because it] would have stirred up [the spirit of] the [Gentiles, who would, then], compete [with] them.
12a, Now, if [Leviathan], their other self, moved them to side-step [preaching salvation to the Gentiles about] the abundance of the world [of the one who rose from the dead], and the deterioration of the abundance [of the existing world of] the Gentiles,R how much more . . .
15, . . . (If itís true [that Leviathan, their] other self, [caused] them to reject exchanging [their spiritual] world [for the world of the one] who rose from the dead, [and is, thus, able] to admit [them to] life) . . .
12b, . . . Will [Leviathan], their other self, [move them] R-1 to side-step preaching to the Gentiles about] their completion? R-2
13, Nevertheless, I am telling you [that Israel doesnít have to be concerned about the spiritual strength of] the Gentiles, [because Israelís spiritual strength] is much greater; and that is why I AM [and] Adonay [have made me] their ambassador, to render my services to the Gentiles [as a preacher of the message of Goodness by the Destruction of the Sin Nature, so that I AM and Adonay may be] increased [in mortal humanity],
14, If, somehow, coming near to [Christ Jesus], the flesh [of the spiritual male organ of the Lord Jesus within me], might stir up the spirit of the Gentiles, so that I might save some of them.16, Moreover, if [Elijah],R the root of the Holy [One which is in Jesus], the first [man] to sacrifice [Leviathan to] the Holy [One, sanctifies] the whole [earthen] mass of humanity, then, [that same root] also [sanctifies] the branches that are broken off [because the branches that broke off fell into and were swallowed up by Adamís earthen part],
15, Because [Christ Jesus], the one new man made from [Abel and Elijah], who is at peace [with Jehovah], the wall [of salvation], has pierced through [Cain], the enmity in our flesh that surrounds [Abel] and hedges [him in].
17, Also, if some of your branches are broken off, and [the branches of] a wild olive tree are grafted in amongst yourselves, and [both the wild and the cultivated branches] become co-partakers of [Elijah], the root and [Jesus, the fruit]/oiliness of the olive tree that came into existence [in the Garden of Eden],
18, Then, the branches that are broken off should not exalt themselves against [the branches which are to be grafted in]; but, if [they are so inclined] to exalt themselves, [they should remember that the branches] do not support the root [of the worlds below it], but, [on the contrary], the root [that formed the worlds] is the source of their [existence].
19, So, the branches that are broken off will appear again because I AM will [rescue them from their earthen grave and] graft them in.
20, But, honestly, [the branches] were broken off [because] they did not believe [the truth about their sin nature, and] they did not highly esteem the mind [of God which reveals that truth]; but you are standing [because] you exercise the high mind [of God, which] disposes you to revere and to be in awe of [God, and His] moral conviction of the truth [about your sin nature],
22, You should know, therefore, [about] the kindness and the severity of God: [His] severity towards them which descend [from the mind of God because they do not believe the truth about their sin nature, and do not highly esteem the mind of God which reveals that truth], but the kindness of God towards [those who exercise the high mind of God, which disposes you to revere and to be in awe of God and His moral conviction of the truth about your sin nature], if you continue [to abide] in His morally excellent mind, or you will be cut off also,
23, So, [the Israelites] who continue in disbelief will be grafted in also, unless they continue to [deny the truth about their sin nature and disesteem the mind of God which reveals that truth], because God is able to graft them in again,
24, Because, if you who were cut out of the nature of an uncultivated olive tree and, contrary to nature, were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more [should] these branches [whose sin] nature was cast downR [by the Law, hope] to be grafted into their own olive tree?
25, And this is why I donít want you to be in denial of this mystery, brethren, [that] the hearts of the [female] side of Israel [who are still under the Law] were blinded because [they were not convicted by the moral excellence of the mind of God, but, rather, chose to believe] the wisdom of their own [mind; nevertheless], they shall be satisfied in the end time [also, when the man, Christ Jesus], enters into the multitude,
26, And this is how all Israel shall be saved according to the way it is written [in prophecy]: A Deliverer shall come out of Zion, [and] He shall turn Jacob away from [the wisdom of his own mind, and from disesteeming the mind of God which reveals the truth about his sin nature].
