Romans 9

Romans 9: The Law of Election

                Paul expresses his sorrow over the stubbornness of the Jews. Paul then explains  how the Law of Election, or predestination works. We learn that God chose Jacob over Esau before either of them was born. This shows that it is possible for someone to be pre-destined to accomplish a goal for the Lord. God deals with individuals in either mercy or judgment, and no one can find fault with His dealings. God also foreordained Israel for adoption of the covenants, the promises, and the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This Salvation comes to both Jew and Gentile and is obtained through Faith in Jesus Christ and His teachings.
