5. Deeper Understanding of the Remnant

ROMAN 11:1-5- I ASK, THEN, HAS GOD REJECTED HIS PEOPLE?  BY NO MEANS!  FOR I MYSELF AM AN ISRAELITE, A DESCENDANT OF ABRAHAM, A MEMBER OF THE TRIBE OF BENJAMIN.  GOD HAS NOT REJECTED HIS PEOPLE WHOM HE FOREKNEW.  DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS OF ELIJAH, HOW HE APPEALS TO GOD AGAINST ISRAEL?  LORD, THEY HAVE KILLED YOUR PROPHETS, THEY HAVE DEMOLISHED YOUR ALTARS, AND I ALONE AM LEFT, AND THEY SEEK MY LIFE.  BUT WHAT IS GOD’S REPLY TO HIM?  I HAVE KEPT FOR MYSELF SEVEN THOUSAND MEN WHO HAVE NOT BOWED THE KNEE TO BAAL.  SO TOO AT THE PRESENT TIME THERE IS A REMNANT, CHOSEN BY GRACE. 

 

1 KINGS 19:9-18

 

ROMANS 9:27-28- AND ISAIAH CRIES OUT CONCERNING ISRAEL: THROUGH THE NUMBER OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL BE AS THE SAND OF THE SEA, ONLY A REMNANT OF THEM WILL BE SAVED, FOR THE LORD WILL CARRY OUT HIS SENTENCE UPON THE EARTH FULLY AND WITHOUT DELAY.  

 

ISAIAH 10:20-23- IN THAT DAY THE REMNANT OF ISRAEL AND THE SURVIVORS OF THE HOUSE OF JACOB WILL NO MORE LEAN ON HIM WHO STRUCK THEM, BUT WILL LEAN ON THE LORD, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, IN TRUTH.  A REMNANT WILL RETURN, THE REMNANT OF JACOB, TO THE MIGHTY GOD.  FOR THOUGH YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL BE AS THE SAND OF THE SEA, ONLY A REMNANT OF THEM WILL RETURN.  DESTRUCTION IS DECREED, OVERFLOWING WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS.  FOR THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS WILL MAKE A FULL END, AS DECREED, IN THE MIDST OF ALL THE EARTH.  

 

MICAH 7:18- WHO IS A GOD LIKE YOU, PARDONING INIQUITY AND PASSING OVER TRANSGRESSION FOR THE REMNANT OF HIS INHERITANCE?
