“…and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written,
‘The Deliverer will come from Zion,
He will remove ungodliness from Jacob.’” – Romans 11:26
So why is a large part of Israel not Christian at the posting of this brief article?
The answer is written in the verse that precedes the verse above. Romans 11:25 states:
“For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery—so that you will not be wise in your own estimation—that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in”
Darrell Mansfield tells the Jews that “Your King is this Man from Galilee” in this song.
I enjoyed Darrell’s walk through the streets of Jerusalem in this 30 year old music video.
Darrell Mansfield was once a young man in search of meaning in life. His search ended at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ after some difficult times in his youth. This early music video was Filmed on location in Jerusalem, September 1986.
I agree with Dr. J. Vernon McGee that these verses are talking about literal Jews (Israelites). I also agree on his commentary involving these verses:

(Click on #8 if you wish to hear Dr. McGee’s commentary on Romans 11:26…It wouldn’t take long to listen to the commentary on the rest of the chapter, too!)
I am watching the tiny little country of Israel become more isolated from the rest of the world. Many former friends have and are leaving them. I will always be a friend to the nation of Israel because of an everlasting covenant that God make with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I believe that the Bible teaches that God will eventually intervene on their behalf. How He does that remains to be seen. One thing I am not concerned about is the destruction of the Israelites. It will not happen.
Darrell Mansfield’s first appearance on an album with the group Gentile Faith. “Jerusalem” is my favorite song on this album.
Looking forward to one day literal and physical Jerusalem to turn to Jesus!
Amen, pastor Jim.
The Bible is clear about the “New Jerusalem.” I am also looking forward to that day!
