And the confusion about GRAFFED IN GENTILES


The KJV inserted the English word 'adoption' in the place of the original Greek word uihothesia.

Uihothesia does not mean adoption.


It has to do with our passing this life's test. As children of the Most High we are examples of our family. Our duty is to obey Yahweh and to love our brethren. If we can endure this mortal life, striving to walk in The Way, with true knowledge and understanding, we can hope for (expect) what Yahweh promised us. Christ showed us the model, and He was placed into position of son. All we have to do is imitate His example, and we will join Him.



G5206  uihothesia   hwee-oth-es-ee'-ah

From a presumed compound of G5207 uihos – son, child, of kinship and a derivative of G5087 thithemi – to place ; the placing as a son, that is, adoption (figuratively Christian sonship in respect to God): - adoption (of children, of sons).

Also G5087 is compared with G2476 and G2749, each containing definitions of: abide, appoint, bring, continue, covenant, establish, hold up, lay, present, set (up), stanch, stand (by, forth, still, up).

All of which describe the anointed seed of Isaac through Jacob.


The actual meaning of uihothesia is "placement," not redemption.  It's literal meaning is "to become an heir," a status Israel lost because of disobedience.  This meaning makes it clear that it is an exclusive reference to Israel only, for no other people were "lost" (put away in punishment). Christ's death reconciled both houses of Israel and the gospel is the message to these Israelites, then and today, that we have a lot of learning, studying, practicing and work to do in order to be even eligible to reclaim our position of sons. (see 'Houses of Israel and Judah' in Who's Who menu)


The English word 'adoption' comes from the Latin word - adoptia - no relationship to the Greek word uihothesia, which never implies taking someone else's child and making it your own.


No one can choose to accept Jesus and get “adopted”. It is the Father that chooses us, and draws us near.


John 6:44  No man can come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

 6:65  And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto Me, except it were given unto him of My Father.


Uiothesia - is when an adolescent becomes an adult, the coming of age, and grows into perfected adulthood.

Ephesians 1:5  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children (placement of son) by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,


Let's observe chapter 1 in full to understand just what is this word 'adoption'.


Ephesians 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Prince Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us (of the 12 tribes) with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

The Greek: 3 Blessed be Yahweh, even the Father of our Prince, Yahshua Christ, who has blessed us among the Anointed (the group) with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places.

'Christ' does not always refer to the Prince. It quite often refers to the Anointed people, or group. Israelites.

 1:4  According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love (obeying the law- John 14:15):

'holy', the same word as 'saint'. We are to be righteous, blameless, set apart from unrighteousness.

The word 'should', implies that since we are of the chosen seed of Abraham, and therefore have a 'called out' purpose, the test is that we 'should' act accordingly. “Just believing” does not make one holy.

 1:5  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

As explained in Romans and Galatians (see in Scriptures menu), the word 'adoption', used only 5 times, is an incorrect translation. The Greek word 'uiothesia' means 'placement of son' or 'position of son'. Adopting someone who is not an Israelite is NOT what this word means.

As children of Israel mature into learned and obedient servants of “faith”, which really means allegiance, to the Kingdom, we are placed into the position of sons/daughters. Only those of this family, seed, race, are eligible.

The “churches” teach that anybody can be “adopted” if they “believe”. If you have eyes to see, scripture will reveal otherwise.

John 1:11  He (Christ) came unto His own (Us), and His own (We) received Him not.

12  But as many (of Us)  as received Him, to them (Us) gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:

Verse 12 in the Greek: But as many who received Him, He gave to them the authority which the children of Yahweh are to attain, to those believing in His Name.

His name represents the seed of Abraham. Christ came only unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel. Jacob's 12 sons and their descendants. Abraham was not going to sacrifice Isaac for everybody in the world. He was offering him to Yahweh and because of it, Yahweh made promises and covenants with Abraham's seed, posterity, race. Christ, who is of this race, died for this race. We are to be the light of the Adamic nations and set the example that Christ showed us.

 1:6  To the praise of the glory (honor) of His grace (favor), wherein He hath made us accepted in (among) the beloved.

 1:7  In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins (falling away), according to the riches of His grace (favor);

 1:8  Wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence (understanding);

 1:9  Having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in (within) Himself:

Romans 16:25  Now to Him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

2Timothy 1:9  Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace (favor), which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

 1:10  That in the dispensation (stewardship) of the fulness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him:

As the seed of Abraham, Christ was the only perfect man, He set the example. We are of this same seed ('called') and therefore stewards of His purpose. To strive to be like Christ.

If your stewardship is supporting the “churches” idea of a Jewish Jesus, you might not be gathered with the stewards that understand their true Prince.

Colossians 1:20  And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things (2 houses, Judah-circumcised and Israel-uncircumcised) unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

 1:11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will:

Only Abraham's seed was preordained for Yahweh's purpose.

 1:12  That we should be to the praise of His glory (honor), who first trusted in Christ.

Those who were aware and had a part in it, meaning walking with Christ. The apostles.

The Greek reveals more:

12 For which we are to be in praise of His honor, who before had expectation in the Christ,

 1:13  In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed (understood), ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

John 1:17  For the law was given through Moses, but favor and truth came through Jesus Christ.

2Corinthians 1:22  Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

 1:14  Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory.  

In verse 13, 'trusted'- is in italic text, which means it was added

In verse 14, earnest- Down payment of the Spirit (2 Cor 5:5, Rom 8:23)

The purchased possession is the seed of Abraham. Not anybody and everybody.

The Greek:

12 For which we are to be in praise of His honor, who before had expectation in the Christ,

13  in whom you also, having heard the word of the truth – the good message of deliverance – in which also having believed, you have been sealed with the Holy Spirit of the promise,

14  which is a deposit of our inheritance, in regard to redemption of the possession, in praise of His honor.

The “churches” say 'everyone' is redeemed. But the scriptures say only Israelites.

Isaiah 43:1  But now thus saith Yahweh that created thee, O Jacobl, and He that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine.

 1:15  Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Prince Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

Only Israelites are saints, set apart, called out, chosen, holy.

 1:16  Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

 1:17  That the God of our Prince Jesus Christ, the Father of glory (honor), may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

Greek reads: 'in His knowledge'

It's more than, “just believing” in or of Him.

 1:18  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory (honor) of His inheritance in the saints (seed of the called),

 1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power,

 1:20  Which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places,

Acts 2:24  Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that He should be holden of it.

 1:21  Far above all principality (realm), and power, and might (authority), and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world (age), but also in that which is to come:

Philippians 2:9-10

9  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name:

10  That at the name of Yahshua every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

 1:22  And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church (assembly, congregation, group of the Anointed),

 1:23  Which is His body, the fulness of Him that filleth all in all.

23  Which is His body, 'the fulfillment of that which all things in all are being fulfilled.'



Galatians 4:4  But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

 4:5  To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

Christ was born an Israelite. Only Israel was given the law (on Mt Sinai). Only Israel could be redeemed because only Israel was under the law. There were no other races or peoples included in the law, promises and covenants at Mt Sinai.

'Adoption' is a deliberate mistranslation. The Greek word 'uiothesia' means 'the placement of son'. It has nothing to do with adopting someone from another race and including them in the will.

The “churches” teach that God is a foster parent for anyone who “believes”. Why would you need to be “adopted” if you are already a child of God's? Oh yeah, because they teach that you are a non-Israelite gentile who by “just believing” you become the seed of Abraham and are by your own declaration are “saved”. That's just CRAZY!!!

The scriptures teach that Israelites are children of Yahweh that when they come of age (mature Spiritually) they are placed into position of son, and are heir to the inheritance promised to Abraham's seed.

 4:6  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Romans 5:5  And the expectation does not disgrace; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us.

 4:7  Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

'through Christ' is not in the original manuscripts.

With this addition, it supports the universal doctrine that anybody who “believes” can become a son. Scripture teaches exclusivity to the children of Israel, the race of Adam.

 4:8  Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.

The Greek: 8 But while at that time not knowing Yahweh, you had been enslaved to those who are not gods by nature; (rebellious pagans)



The confusion is because of the word 'Gentile'. Which is also an incorrect and deceptive word. It does not mean non-Israelite. (Please see 'Gentile' in Word Studies menu.)

When our ancestors, as well as us today, stray from Yahweh, we are preferring other gods, images, idols, lusts and desires instead of Him. This causes us to despise our birthright and inheritance. Why would we be placed into position of son/daughter if we are not educated with knowledge and understanding and also act AS a son/daughter of Yahweh?

The above verses show that any sort of “adoption” can only be received if you were born under the law, meaning of the sons of Jacob.



Paul talks about the law. That we should seek to establish the law.

To mind things of the Spirit, not the flesh. Righteousness and the law.

Romans 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

1Corinthians 15:45  And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam (Christ) was made a quickening spirit.

 8:3  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

The original Greek is a little clearer:

3 The law is powerless, in that it has been weak over the flesh, Yahweh sending His own Son in the likeness of errant flesh, and amidst guilt, condemned guilt in the flesh,

Christ was Yahweh come as a man, living in a sinful society, and Himself never sinning. His sacrifice was for our sins, if He had sinned, He would not have been able to bear ours.

 8:4  That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Part of the definition of righteousness is judgment. We will be judged.

 8:5  For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

John 3:6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Galatians 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

 8:6  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

The Greek:

6  For the purpose of flesh is death; but the purpose of the spirit, life and peace.

 8:7  Because the carnal mind is enmity (hostile) against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

7  Because the purpose of flesh is hostility to Yahweh, then to the law of Yahweh it is not obedient; neither is it able to be;

James 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

 8:8  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

 8:9  But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Galatians 4:6  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Verse 9, 'the' is not in the older manuscripts, it should read 'but in Spirit'

Genesis 2:7 – Yahweh personally breathed the 'breath of life' (H5397) into Adam.

Only Adamkind has this Spirit. Yahweh never did so with any other peoples. This book is about the generations of Adam.

Spirit, quite simply can be described as DNA. A genetic make up, or code. Yahweh created “kind after kind”. When He breathed His Spirit into Adam, Adam now carried the specific DNA of the Spirit, which kind after kind, generation after generation, is handed down throughout his descendants. That is why Yahweh wants us to remain separate. Separate from what? Those not of our own race. Those who do not have the Spirit.

 8:10  And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

 8:11  But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.

These if's are part of the deal. Deuteronomy 23:2

Deuteronomy 23:2  A bastard (child of race mixing) shall not enter into the congregation of Yahweh; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of Yahweh.

 8:12  Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

 8:13  For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

Galatians 6:8  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Ephesians 4:22  That ye put off concerning the former conversation (conduct) the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Of the family, DNA, of Yahweh.

 8:15  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

The KJV translators put the word 'adoption', where the Greek word uiothesia (G5206) is.



In the parable of the wheat and tares, Matt 13:24-30 37-43 Christ does not insinuate that Yahweh will adopt the tares and make wheat out of them.

In the Prodigal Son, Luke 15:11-32 the boy does not change fathers, but returns to the same father he left. And the father did not adopt a wayward boy of the devil and make him his own.



We are children of Yahweh. If we seek righteousness and strive to walk in Christ's example, when we are tried through the fire, and our works remain, then we receive the 'placement of sons”, we inherit our place by His side in the Kingdom.

Romans 8:16  The Spirit (DNA) itself beareth witness with our spirit (DNA), that we are the children of God:

 8:17  And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified together.

 8:18  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

2Corinthians 4:7  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels (Adamic bodies), that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

1Peter 1:6  Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

 8:19  For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

2Peter 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

 8:20  For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who hath subjected the same in hope (expectation),

 8:21  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

 8:22  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

In verses 19-21 'creature' should be creation, just like in verse 22. It's the same word, and it's meaning is the creation or formation or original of the things God created. Those things he did not create (hybrids) will be destroyed. Example: God created a horse and a donkey, but not the mule. God created our vegetables, but not the genetically modified ones (GMO). God created Adam, but not the mix of Adam and another race.

 8:23  And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Paul is saying that 'they', who are the dispersed tribes (10 northern), and 'ourselves' who are the Judaeans (2 southern tribes), wait for the placement or position of sons, the redemption of our body.

The verses containing 'adoption' so far have plainly stated who it pertains to.

 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

 8:29  For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

The purpose is to imitate His example.

Christ is our literal brother. A descendant of the sons of Jacob. Of the race of Adam. As are we.



Romans 9:1  I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit,

While Christ means anointed, as in the Anointed One of Israel, the KJV translators should have rendered this 'I speak the truth among the Anointed,' referring to the group, the called out, or anointed seed of Abraham. Israelites (of the 12 tribes). Paul is in his letter to the Romans, speaking to the Israelites, both of the circumcised (Judaeans) and the uncircumcised (Greeks, who are just some of the dispersed 10 tribes). He is the apostle to the Nations (of the 12 tribes). The other apostles mostly brought the gospel to the Judaeans. Paul brought the gospel to the dispersed nations, descendants of those who were not part of the Exodus and missed the experiences that the Judaeans went through. He is “graffing” the dispersed Israelite Nations back in.

 9:2  That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.

 9:3  For I could wish that myself were accursed (banned) from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:

Again Christ here should have been 'anointed'. Paul was banned from groups and assemblies of his brethren by the Edomite scribes and Pharisees, who wanted to keep their “traditions of men” (Mark 7:8, Col 2:8). Their version of the Law of Moses. The truth and the gospel was threatening their control and position.

 9:3 kinsmen according to the flesh: (DNA)  (Deut 32:32)

 9:4  Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption (position of sons), and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;

An important note, and proof of deliberate false teaching by today's “churches”: in verse 4 Paul is addressing Israelites. If the “adoption” is for “Gentiles”, why is he stating that the adoption pertains to Israel?

 9:5  Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

The translators either deliberately or ignorantly botched this verse up.

Let's look at the original Greek:

Continuing from verse 4....5 whose are the fathers; and of whom are the Anointed (the group) in regards to the flesh, being over all blessed of Yahweh for the ages. Truly.



The 'adoption' is not an invitation to the rest of the world.

Scripture is plainly stating who the 'position of sons' pertains to.



Hebrews 2:10  For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory (honor), to make the captain (Originator) of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Acts 5:31  Him hath God exalted with His right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. (Luke 24:46, Rom 11:36)

To the world, or to all men? No, it says 'Israel'. Christ came only unto the lost sheep of Israel.

 2:11  For both He that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of (sprung from) one: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Christ is our brother. We are related.

Christ came in the flesh of Adam, through the seed of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and in the lineage of Jacob's son Judah. Literal brethren, kin.

 2:12  Saying, I will declare your name unto My brethren, in the midst of the church (assembly) will I sing praise unto you.  (Psa 22:22)

 2:13  And again, I will put my trust in Him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.  

Psalm 18:2  The Prince is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Isaiah 8:18  Behold, I and the children whom Yahweh hath given Me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from Yahweh of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion (the people).

Deuteronomy 14:1  Ye are the children of  Yahweh your God: you shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.

 2:14  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil (False Accuser);  (1 Cor 15:54)

 2:15  And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Luke 1:74  That He would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear,

2Timothy 1:7  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (discretion).

Fear causes bondage. If we love Yahweh and keep His commands, we have nothing to fear.

 2:16  For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham.

The offspring of Abraham. Fleshly posterity.

The “churches” teach that you can become “spiritual Israel”. This is a lie.

The word 'seed' in Greek is 'sperma'. Sperm cannot be “spiritual”. Sperm produces “kind after kind”.

 2:17  Wherefore in all things it behoved (obliged) Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful (compassionate) and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation (propitiation) for the sins (failures) of the people.

Hebrews 4:15  For we have not an high priest having no ability to sympathize with our weakness, but who being tested by all things in like manner, is without failure.

 2:18  For in that He Himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour (help) them that are tempted.

Our Prince came and showed us how it's done. Perfectly. He is the model. We are to imitate His example. This is the path to being placed into 'position of sons' (wrongly 'adopted').

Romans 11:16  For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

Jacob was holy, his seed was called out, holy (set apart). The branches here are the descendants of Judah namely Zarah. Zarah was the twin of Pharez through Tamar. Zarah's descendants left Egypt before the Exodus and settled Troy and later Rome. These are the wild olives whose branches were broken off.

 11:17  And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree (of the same tree), wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Jeremiah 11:16  Yahweh called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult He hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.

Acts 2:39  For the promise is unto you (Judaean Israelites- near), and to your children, and to all that are afar off (dispersed Israelites- far), even as many as the Prince our God shall call.

Ephesians 2:12  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

The captivities were because of disobedience, it was a divorce, Israel was cast off and they forgot their heritage. But they were still Israel. Christ reconciled the children of Israel, both near and far.

 11:18  Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.  

 11:19  Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.

 11:20  Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

The Greek: 19  Now you will say, Those branches have been broken off, in order that I would be grafted in?

20  Correct, in disbelief they were broken off, and you in faith stand. Be not proud, but reverent.

 11:21  For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest He also spare not thee.

Paul was telling the Judaeans and the dispersed Nations that they were of the same tree, not to boast because they had the law and the others didn't. They were all of the same lump.

 11:22  Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in His goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

1Corinthians 15:2  By which also ye are saved (preserved), if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

John 15:2  Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth (cleanse) it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

 11:23  And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.

Notice the word 'again'. Only something that was broken off can be grafted back to it's original. Remember, kind after kind.

 11:24  For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

 11:25  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 Gentiles (dispersed Nations) be come in.  (2 Cor 3:14)

To know the mystery you have to know the history.


Paul clearly states that the Romans are a branch that was broken off from the main tree.  ("If some of the branches be broken off...")  Only a branch of the same race can be grafted in.  Verses 17-19 clearly talk about the branches that were broken off (in Egypt)(this would also include those Israelites that did not return to Judaea after the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities, and forgot who they were and their God.)
