    IV. OTHER REMARKS ON THE CONVERSION OF THE JEWS

    The idea that either Jew or Gentile will obtain mercy after Christ appears, is most preposterous. It would violate some of the most plain declarations of God’s word. We have already learned, from the 6th of Isaiah, that the blindness of the Jews is to continue until the Lord have removed men far away, and the earth is desolated. This will not be until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. Then the saints will be removed, and the wicked destroyed; a new heavens and earth be made, and the holy seed return and possess it.PREX1 75.1

    The Lord Jesus, in the 13th of Luke, taught the Jews, that when once the master of the house has risen up and shut too the door, that they, the Jews, the children of the kingdom, they who were the natural heirs to it through their relation to Abraham, should be cast out into outer darkness, where will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, and see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God. More; they shall come from the east and from the west, from the north and south, and sit down with patriarchs and prophets in the kingdom of God, while themselves are thrust out. They will then seek to enter in, but shall not be able. They will plead, but find no admission.PREX1 76.1

    Again; Paul teaches the same thing in Romans 2nd chapter, where he declares that God will render to every man who doeth good, glory, honor and peace, to the Jew first, and then also to the Gentile; but to every soul of man that doeth evil, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile; “in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Christ Jesus, according to my gospel.” Keep in, remembrance, reader, that the doom of blindness is on them until the day of judgment. And then indignation and wrath is their portion.PREX1 76.2
