“…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:
Romans 11 ‘Thru the Bible’ with Dr. J. Vernon McGee
(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.

Jerusalem…Entering the Old City

warning shots were fired twice by an Israeli tank at Assad regime troops inside
Syria who were attempting to fortify positions in a buffer zone on Israel’s border.
The Palestinian Authority (PA) continues inciting school children through their
curriculum. The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus sponsored the Jerusalem Chairman’s
Conference where one of the speakers was Itimar Marcus of the Palestinian Media
Watch. While leaders from many countries including the United States were in
attendance, Marcus shared the actual material being read and studied by ‘Palestinian’
students even those in East Jerusalem. The curriculum is paid for by the UN and
some of that money comes from American Tax Payers. The picture was a
program on a PA children’s show, which aired May 23rd, 2017. How can the PA want
peace, when they teach their children to hate their ‘peace partner’?
In a draft resolution, the Arab League accused Iran and Hezbollah, which it considers
to be a terror organization, of supplying weapons and missiles to various terrorist
militias. “We are not declaring war on Iran at this stage,” announced Arab League
Secretary-General, but we are alerting the Security Council to possible future steps.”
A Jerusalem court ruled that the Palestinian Authority is liable for the 2001 shooting
attack in which three Israelis were murdered. The court ordered the PA and the
terrorists to pay a total of 62 million shekels (around 20 million dollars) to the
victims’ Israeli family.

Israeli-Palestinian peace deal being put together by the Trump administration,
or resign. (IND Weekly)
Washington tells Palestinian Authority to join Israel in Peace Negotiations or the
office of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) will not be recertified
I believe that Israel is God’s prophetic timepiece. The Middle East appears more stressed than ever. Are we nearing fulfillment of Biblical prophecies that we presently don’t understand completely? I continue to watch the tiny nation surrounded by enemies.
