I once in my boyhood heard a Danish missionary to Israel make this statement:  “The Bible is the national history of the Jews!” Fascinating, indeed.  History wasn´t really my choice in school, but his words made me riveted. (Today history is a passion of mine).

As I got more into the Bible it struck me that the Jews are the only people whose history is recorded in the past, in the present and in the future.  The chapters 9, 10 and 11 in the Romans are one of the keys to that truth.  The history of my people is written down all right, but certainly not its exact future.

So whenever I talk to a Jew I would with rapture witness to this fact.  But today it touched me that God´s real “trump card” concerning Israel is not its history, legacy, religion, temple, holy ordinances, etc. – no, none of that, it is Jesus Christ!  It went right in when I anew read the words,

“… of whom (the Jews) are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God. Amen!”  Rom. 9:5

The Jews rejected the Christ, but He has not – prophetically - rejected the Jews!  “Has God cast away His people?  Certainly not!”  (Rom. 11:1).  They have a future with Him!  It´s not possible for me now to go into all the wonderful Bible references that speak of that, but they are many.  Start for yourself with Romans 9, 10, 11.

Notice how He is presented in the above doxology, “Christ…over all, the eternally blessed God!” I´m aware that Jehovah´s Witnesses (and others) twist this word and its grammatical order to avoid the deity of Christ – “the eternally blessed God” – equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit as part of the blessed Trinity – but we´d better let the word stand as it is.

Israel will some day, deeply humiliated and deserted by the whole world, turn to that eternal Messiah and His love once exhibited at Calvary (see Zech. 12:10-14).  Oh yes, Christ is the key of a lasting solution for the Jewish people.

Is He also, right now, the powerful key of solution for your lost soul, my friend?
