God's Wrath and Mercy
19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doeth he yet complain? For who hath resisted his will?
20 But, O man, who art thou which pleadest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
21 Hath not the potter power of the clay to make of the same lump one vessel to honor, and another unto dishonor?
22 What and if God would, to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, suffer with long patience the vessels of wrath, prepared to destruction?
23 And that he might declare the riches of his glory upon the vessels of mercy, which he hath prepared unto glory?
24 Even us whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles,
25 As he saith also in Hosea, I will call them, My people, which were not my people, and her, Beloved, which was not beloved.
26 And it shall be in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, that there they shall be called, The children of the living God.
27 Also Isaiah crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel were as the sand of the sea, yet shall but a remnant be saved.
28 For he will make his account, and gather it into a short sum with righteousness, for the Lord will make a short count in the earth.
29 And as Isaiah said before, Except the Lord of hosts had left us a seed, we had been made as Sodom, and had been like to Gomorrha.
30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles which followed not righteousness, have attained unto righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.
31 But Israel which followed the Law of righteousness, could not attain unto the Law of righteousness.
32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the Law. For they have stumbled at the stumbling stone,
33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumbling stone, and a rock to make men fall, and every one that believeth in him, shall not be ashamed.
10:1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have the zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3 For they, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and going about to stablish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the Law for righteousness unto every one that believeth.
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
