God's Election of Israel
1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience bearing me witness in the holy Ghost,
2 That I have great heaviness, and continual sorrow in my heart.
3 For I would wish myself to be separate from Christ, for my brethren that are my kinsmen according to the flesh,
4 Which are the Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the Covenants, and the giving of the Law, and the service of God, and the promises.
5 Of whom are the fathers, and of whom concerning the flesh, Christ came, who is God over all, blessed forever, Amen.
6 Notwithstanding it cannot be that the word of God should take none effect. For all they are not Israel, which are of Israel;
7 Neither are they all children, because they are the seed of Abraham; but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called;
8 That is, they which are the children of the flesh, are not the children of God, but the children of the promise, are counted for the seed.
9 For this is a word of promise, In this same time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son.
10 Neither he only felt this, but also Rebecca, when she had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac.
11 For before the children were born, and when they had neither done good, nor evil (that the purpose of God might remain according to election, not by works, but by him that calleth.)
12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
13 As it is written, I have loved Jacob, and have hated Esau.
14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on him, to whom I will shew mercy, and will have compassion on him, on whom I will have compassion.
16 So then it is not in him that willeth, nor in him that runneth, but in God that sheweth mercy.
17 For the Scripture saith unto Pharaoh, For this same purpose have I stirred thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my Name might be declared throughout all the earth.
18 Therefore he hath mercy on whom he will, and whom he will he hardeneth.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
