QUESTION: Romans chapter ten, Brethren my hearts desire and prayer of Israel is that they might be saved?
ANSWER: Remember that Salvation to Israel is being brought back to the sheepfold, so that they may hear the Sheep Call, grafted back on their own Olive Tree. Then at a promised time all Israel will act right, do right, and never be ashamed anymore. ‘For I bear them record that they have a zeal of YAHWEH, but not according to the knowledge (of the kingdom). For being ignorant of YAHWEH’S program of the kingdom they go about trying to establish their own program for reaching him. But YAHSHUA is the end of the law of righteousness to everyone that believes. (vs 4)
O.K., so what were the Israelites to believe? That YAHWEH himself came as YAHSHUA‑Messiah to redeem His people, to graft them all back on to their own Olive Tree, so as to bring them back to the Sheep Fold as they hear the Sheep Call. If you confess with our mouth that YAHWEH came embodied as YAHSHUA‑Saviour and believe in your heart that HE raised His physical body from the tomb by the power of His Spirit, this is Salvation for Israel. This is not being ‘born again’. this sets Israel apart, brings them to the recognition of the ‘Sheep Call’.
The word ashamed in verse eleven means you will not be opposed or in opposition to the program of the kingdom. There is thus no difference in a Judean or a Greek if they are both of Israel for the same YAHSHUA, is YAHWEH in the flesh, and HE is over all. And whosoever shall call upon YAHSHUA shall be saved. (Brought back to the sheep fold) But who are they to believe in HIM is they haven’t heard? And how shall they hear unless someone comes to tell them? And how can someone come to preach or to teach them unless they are sent? (vs 15) How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of Understanding (kingdom), and bring these glad tidings of all good things. But they have not all obeyed the Gospel. Even Isaiah complained: ‘YAHWEH who has believed our report?’ Yet Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the WORD of YAHWEH. The WORD, the living WORD is YAHSHUA, and again you must look past the printed word unto the Living Word. (vs 17)
