Every Word – Wild and Good Olives

A lot has been written and even movies made showing the importance of every word and that there can be hidden meaning in every word in the Bible. At the same time many things that are not hidden are not understood or ignored. Many have been taught to ignore the Bible’s own definition for terms.

In Romans 11:16-27, Paul talks about Wild and Good Olive Trees and grafting of branches from one to the other. Major doctrines have been created with the incorrect use of these words trying to substitute other people for Israel. This is partly the fault of the translators for putting a Latin word, Gentiles, in an English translation, thus hiding the true meaning of scripture to protect their position and possibly lives from the church of England. The Hebrew and Greek words translated Gentile mean only Nation. The context of the passage determines the who of the word nation. Many times it is the divorced House of Israel.

Romans 11:25-27 “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Nations be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”

There were two houses of Israel, the House of Judah who had the election. The House of Israel who had lost the right to be called Israel and were then called Nations (Gentiles) in the scripture. There is no other covenant, but the one made with the two houses. The Wild Olive tree is the House of Israel. The Good Olive tree is the House of Judah. Pauls conclusion was not that all Israel and non-Israel would be saved. Paul said,

“And so all Israel shall be saved”.

The modern day Jews are not God’s Israel people.
