26 And so ALL Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; 27 For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins."
The Deliverer, their Messiah Jesus Christ, will return to Zion (Jerusalem) at His Second Coming and start the glorious Millennial Age. He will then take away all ungodliness and sins from Jacob (Israel).
Please notice that Jesus Christ returns to earth to fulfill God's Covenant with Israel, which is the Abrahamic Covenant whereby ALL Israel will be blessed with salvation. 'All Israel' means ALL ISRAEL without exception. Why don't we take the Word of God at face value and believe what God says that ALL ISRAEL actually does mean ALL ISRAEL?
God has a time and order in which to save ALL ISRAEL.
God first saves His Elect from the nation of Israel, together with His Elect Gentiles, when they rise in the First Resurrection. God will then save all the surviving Jews who enter Christ's Millennial Kingdom and all of their descendants, when they rise in the Second Resurrection at the end of the thousand-year Millennial Age.
But what about the multiple millions of Jews who have lived and died as unbelievers before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ who will miss out on being in the First Resurrection and Christ's Millennial Kingdom? Let us now go on to see that God has not forgotten them or condemned them to eternal torment in hell.
