13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I take pride in my ministry 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. 15 For if their rejection brought reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? 16 If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.
17 If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, 18 do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
You explained this to me so many years ago…. Most Christians don,t believe this, I have even been told By my “so called Christian family” that we no longer “need the JEW. I am stunned when I hear this, because this is not what the GOSPLE says!
You took me under your wing and showed and taught me the TRUTH, and the HOLY SPIRIT confirmed this to me. My time up here is winding to an end….I would very much like to come back to work for you,that is if you need my help(and you know me) I can do anything that is put in front of me. Time is short and I want to be useful in the work that you are doing. I feel so out of place up here, I once again want to belong to people who tell the truth, and LOVE the LORD as much as I do.I hope and pray that I will hear from you…I send my love to you and your family.

Well said JIM. Sadly, too many PASTORS and MINISTERS say they are well versed in the SCRIPTURES, but fail to understand ROMANS 9-11, either through ignorance or that they would prefer to deliberately pass it over. ROMANS 9, ISRAEL past; ROMANS 10, ISRAEL present; ROMANS 11, ISRAEL future. May YAHWEH bless ISRAEL and keep her safe. Thank you JIM, and GOD bless you.
