Romans 11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
In the time of Paul there was a remnant, and there is a remnant today who know the truth. They
understand God’s overall plan and pass that knowledge down from generation to generation.
Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it beof works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
Now we are getting somewhere in answering the first question I posed to you. Many seeds that you
plant don’t germinate, because many of the people have been blinded.
(According as it is written, “God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they
see, and ears that they should not hear”), unto this day.
There is something special about this. The word “slumber” is “katanuxis” (kat
-oox- is), and itmeans a prickling sensation, as of the limbs asleep. That is the spirit God has given the minds of some.
This is the reason that sometimes your precious seeds of truth fall on deaf ears. Don’t give up, butdon’t be too disappointed, when others can’t hear with understanding. Their minds are asleep. Those
sleeping limbs will awaken, when the Holy Spirit speaks through you as you are delivered up beforeantichrist. Why would God pour a stupor on some? I believe it is for their own protection. If one of them was to see the truth, and then worship antichirst, it would be the unforgiveable sin.
forget we have the millennium, as well.
And David saith, “Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and
a recompense unto them:
Spiritually speaking, the food they receive from many tables becomes a snare because of falseteaching.
