“God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel: “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”? And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace.”

 

Key Points:

This passage points to Israel and that there is a future in God’s plan for the Jews. Paul calls five witnesses to demonstrate this

  • Paul Himself
  • The Prophet Elijah
  • The Gentiles
  • The Patriarchs
  • God Himself

We can learn from Israel, we can grow in our faithfulness, trust and response to God.
