The Olive Tree Defined


The olive tree of Rom11 is the commonwealth of Israel of which Apostle Paul speaks of in Eph2:12 having made both ((jew and gentile)) into One new man …The Apostle also says that this was brought about By Christ “Abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is THE LAW OF COMMANDMENTS CONTAINED IN ORDINANCES”…..Eph2:15 

The Olive Tree is not Israel in the flesh, But it is the descendants of Abraham’s faith. Apostle fully explains this in detail Gal3:16 and He further says in Gal3:18 “That the inheritance of Jews and gentiles is based on the promise made to Abraham and not the Law. 
It was foretold way back in Genesis that the Bond woman and her son (Israel in the flesh) were to be cast out and not be heir with the free woman (The Israel of God) Gen21:10 Gal4:30
We must understand the Grace of God as the scripture says and not our preconceived theologies. 
God “has shut up all men Jew/Gentile under sin that the promise by Faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe” Gal3:22 Rom11:32
It all has to do with God’s mercy and nothing to do with the Law or being a Jew or a Gentile. 
For it is Christ who is the “seed” of the promise and it is Faith; the same Faith of Abraham which is the Holy Root that is supportive of the Tree with its branches, that is why Apostle says that Jews can be grafted back into the Tree “if they do not continue in their unbelief” Rom11:23 The Law is obsolete it is only faith.

The New covenant was made with the remnant of Israel and Judah; Only with the remnant of the people, The rest were hardened Jn12:40 Isaiah6:10
From the time of the return from the Babylonian captivity, God only concerned Himself with “The Remnant of the people” Hag1:14 and so it is today....
 “The all Israel" of Rom11 that will be saved is that Olive tree consisting of the remnant of the people Jew & Gentile, a people of Faith and that is the work of Grace. By Grace through Faith are Ye saved.
