[QTVOTD] Grafted in…

“I have stretched out My hands all day long to a rebellious people, Who walk in a way that is not good, According to their own thoughts; A people who provoke Me to anger continually to My face; Who sacrifice in gardens, And burn incense on altars of brick; Who sit among the graves, And spend the night in the tombs; Who eat swine’s flesh, And the broth of abominable things is in their vessels; Who say, ‘Keep to yourself, Do not come near me, For I am holier than you!’ These are smoke in My nostrils, A fire that burns all the day.” Isaiah 65:2-5 ->me: This is God talking about His frustration with His chosen people. In the verse before this (vs 1) God is talking about opening Himself up to the Gentiles and that they would come to Him even though He does not call…yet the people whom He not only called but rescued from Egypt and revealed many miracles to in the wilderness would not heed Him. Now I better understand Paul’s passage in Romans 11:11-24 talking about being grafted into the vine because the children of Israel transgressed…I am sure that the letter to the Romans was a well researched sermon taken right out of Isaiah 65. Thank you again God for allowing me a place at your family table; being made an heir through the cleansing blood of Your Son.
