Not All From Israel Belong To Israel – Part 1 – Romans 9:6-13

They which are the descendants of the patriarch Jacob, whose name was Israel are not all the “Israel of God” whom Jehovah the Father has chosen for a peculiar people; which Christ has redeemed from all their iniquities; which the Spirit of God calls with an holy calling, by special grace, to special privileges; the seed of Israel who are justified in Christ, whose iniquities are so pardoned and done away, that when they are sought for they shall not be found, and who are saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: or in other words, though they are “Israel after the flesh” yet not after the Spirit; though they are by nation Israelites, they are not Israelites “indeed”, as Nathanael was; they are Jews outwardly, not inwardly; they have not all principles of grace, uprightness, and sincerity in them. To the spiritual Israelites, were the word of God concerning spiritual and eternal things made, and upon these they had their effect; and therefore it could not be said that the word of God had taken none effect. – John Gill
