Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.”   1 Thessalonians 2.14-16

    1. Hello Jerry.
      My answer to you is this…

      Yes, all of Israel will be saved prior to Christ’s return.
      But very importantly…one must distinguish the Israel of God, from national Israel.

      In Romans 11, Paul was speaking to the possibility of those at that time who were of national Israel that would be graffed back in if they abided not still in unbelief. Go read these verses, and take note of the wording…”at this present time” and the word “if.”
      Romans 11.5, 11.14, 11.23.

      Consider also that just 2 chapters earlier, in verse 9.8, Paul said “That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”
      (Correlating to Galatians chapters 3 and 4). See also Romans 2.28,29.

      With the summary of Galatians 6.15,16
      giving us the take away about who the Israel of God actually is…
      “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.”

      1. Ok, I understand where you are coming from, so what is your take on Jesus statements in Matt. 23:39; and Hosea 5:15 “I will go away and return to My place Until they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me”?

        And then there is :Micah 5:3 Therefore He will give them up until the time When she who is in labor has borne a child. Then the remainder of His brethren Will return to the sons of Israel.

        1. Good mornin Jerry,
          What is your answer to the first comment-question you presented to me?

          And to Matthew 23.39, I believe that Matthew 23.37, 38 tells the story of national Israel in general, their relationship with God
          “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings,
          and ye would not!
          Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.”

          1. I guess my question was more for discussion. I believe that we may agree that we are now Israel, but we may disagree what that means. I for example do not believe that we have replaced Israel, but that we have been adopted into Israel, one with the saints, and that we will see before Jesus returns — a return to Israel (true Israel) those from Present day Israel who have been refined as pure gold as prophesied in Zechariah
