Oh boy, where to begin? To start off. No doubt, a lot of Paul’s letters was referencing the lost tribes, but it is all based on context. Cornelius was NOT an Israelite/Jew, yet the Holy Spirit fell on him and his household. That alone is sufficient to blow this argument into pieces.
I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles (ETHNOS 1484).
In fact, all of chapter 11 is about how Israel’s disobedience paved the way for salvation to come to the gentiles, and how the gentiles should not boast against the Israelites.
In your seed ALL the nations (GOYIM 1471) of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.
So all nations are blessed through Abraham’s covenant. Lets stop cherry-picking verses here. I know the nations have been cruel to us, but that is no reason to act like them. Lets not cancel out hate with hate.
