God Has a Grand Plan!
We must not be wise in our own estimation when it comes to Israel or be uninformed of this mystery. Rom. 11:25 says that, "A partial hardening has happened to Israel until..."
Until what? Maybe you have read this verse many times. Have you realized that the word until is the key word in this passage? "A partial hardening has happened to Israel until..." That means there is a point in time when the hardening will be removed. That time is when "the fullness of the Gentiles has come in"(Rom. 11:25).
What does the fullness of the Gentiles look like? Perhaps it deals in part with the day Jerusalem was released from Gentile control and restored to Israeli rule in 1967. But knowing the God that we serve, this probably does not deal only with land but with hearts as well. Oh yes, He has the hearts of the people of the Middle East in His heart and plan!
What Gentile people group would, in the minds of most people, be the most unlikely to come to faith in the Jewish Messiah? Would it not be the Islamic people? What if the Holy Spirit moved powerfully upon a remnant of the Islamic people and they turned away from their false god to serve the Jewish Messiah? What if a movement of God fell upon them with the signs and wonders of an apostolic dimension, and they were grafted in as wild olive shoots to the Master's tree? Talk about pricking the Jewish heart to jealousy!
What I do know is God has a Road Map, and it is different from the international Quartet's Road Map or other political agendas. God has a grand plan and ultimately His will shall be done!
