Them That Are No People
| In Romans ten Paul
refers to those identified as "them that are no people" (verse
19). These are the same ones called "those who sought me
not" in verse 20. It refers to Gentiles of whom Isaiah had prophesied
would find the Lord. This they did by hearing and obeying the gospel.
But the case with Israel was different. God stretched forth His invitation to Israel and to all nations (Isaiah 2: 2), but the Jewish people turned their back even though they needed salvation as much as did the Gentiles.
This is the sad and deplorable state, not only of the Jews as a people even yet, but the state and lost spiritual condition of all who reject the gospel, God's plan for the salvation of man.
There is one way to heaven, God's way, who is Christ (John 14: 6).
