God's Gifts and Call Will Not Be Taken Away    

In the Old Testament there were many Jews who had faith and trusted God, not the Law, for salvation. Sometimes large portions of a generation believed.

Abraham: “Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.” – Genesis 15:6

Jacob: “The Lord will be my God.” – Genesis 28:21

Joseph: “God will surely come to your aid and take you up out of this land to the land he promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” – Genesis 50:24

Joshua: “Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is given you for your own.” – Joshua 1:11

Samuel: “Speak, for your servant is listening.” – First Samuel 3:10

David: “Create in me a pure heart, O God…You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it…The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” – Psalm 51:10, 16-17

Solomon: “The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this.” – First Kings 3:10

At the same time there were many Jews in the Old Testament who did not believe, such as King Ahaz who was warned by Isaiah:

“If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.” - Isaiah 7:9

And, in Jesus day an entire generation followed their rebellious leaders and rejected the Lord:

Jewish crowd: “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!”…We have no king but Caesar.” – John 19:15

Paul faced the same rejection from large groups of Jews when he presented the Word of God:

“Some were convinced by what he said, but others would not believe. They disagreed among themselves and began to leave…” – Acts 28:24

Paul writes in Romans 11:28-29 that the Jews are enemies of the gospel, because they as a culture oppose the gospel message. They showed contempt for the promise, and, instead, chose the Law. Yet, the Gentiles did not stumble over the concept of salvation by faith.

But, because of the promise given to the patriarchs such as Abraham, Jacob, (and, the promises that were believed by Joseph, Joshua, David and many more) Israel is still elected by God. Israel was chosen for a purpose and Israel was given a mission. As a people group Israel cannot be forgotten by God and neither will God’s plans be changed, because God gave Israel their mission and God called them to action. It will be done. Israel will accomplish God’s call and his plan will prosper because:

“God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.”

  Christian Quote from Church History

"The true follower of Christ
will not ask, 'If I embrace this truth, what will it cost me?' Rather he will say, 'This is truth. God help me to walk in it, let come what may!' "
- A.W. Tozer







Something to Ponder??

Council of Constantinople II (680) - rejected Monothelitism a belief that Jesus had both a human will and a divine will.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information


Talah (Hb) - Hang (Eng) - the Hebrew talah comes from a Hebrew root
word that means "to let dangle." This word is found most frequently in
the book of Esther. It can be used in a figurative sense to indentify
something that is depnedable and can be trusted. Talah is used to
describe the act of hanging an object or hanging a person to death.


Archaeologist Bryant Wood identifies Bab edh-Dhra on the east side of the Dead Sea shoreline as the site of Sodom. Excavation revealed that when this culture was destroyed the people at that time were burying their dead
in little round or rectangular buildings on the surface of
the ground built of mud bricks in a large cemetary. All of these tomb-houses had been burned from the inside out. Archaeologist wondered if burning the dead in these little mud houses was part of the burial practice to prevent the spread of disease. But, it was discovered that the fire did
not begin inside the little buildings, but instead started on the roof, which then collapsed into the interior where the fire then burned from the inside out on every one of the little mud houses. This fact confirms with the destruction of Sodom whem the Lord rained burning sulfur down on top of this city. (Genesis 19:24)

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I feel I have made to many mistakes? Do I think that I have wasted God's call and gifts in my life?
I will understand, believe and act on the promise that God's gifts and callings are irrevocable.
I will keep moving towards God's plan and serve him with the gifts he has given me.
  "He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies
will have his fill of poverty."
- Proverbs 28:19

View of Jerusalem from a Kidron Tomb



Archaeological details of the excavation at Sepphoris.

Marilyn looks at the southeast corner of the Temple Mount over the Kidron Valley from a tomb on the side of the Mount of Olives belonging to a family of priests named Bene Hezir (or, sons of Hezir). An inscription says the "sons of Hezir." 1 Chronicles 34:1 and 15 mention a priest named Hezir from the line of Aaron serving in the days of David. An inscription written in Hebrew found on the tomb says: This is the tomb and the monument of Alexander, Hanniah, Yo’ezer, Judah, Simon, Johanan, the sons of Joseph son of Oved. Joseph and Eliezer sons of Hanniah – priests of the Hezir family. The inscription mentions a monument that may have been located to the left of the tomb entrance on the wall.
