Do you bear the Root, or is the Root bearing you? What Yahuwah planted one Israel that became two nations through division and eventually both nations were laid bare before all the nations, as branches both natural and unnatural or cultivated and uncultivated were cut off. Regardless of what type of branch we are, if we are not connected to the root of that tree which is Messiah, we wither and die.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective
– Chapter 11 • Part 2 –
Romans 11:17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you,being a wild olive eytz, were grafted in among them, and with them you partake of the Root and fatness of the olive eytz.
The origin of grafting in the bible:
Genesis 12:3 and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed/mingled.
Commentary on Genesis 12.3 by R. Eleazer: “what is the meaning of this verse in Scripture? I have two good shoots to graft onto you: Ruth of Moab and Naamah of Ammon. (b. Yevamot 63.a).
Rabbi Judah (an unregenerate Rabbi commenting on Genesis 12.3) “all grafting that does not take root within three days will not take root.”
Romans 11:18 Boast not against the cultivated branches. But if you boast, you better remember that you do not bear the Root, but the Root bears you.
Romans 11:19 You will say then, The cultivated branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
The Church triumphant has become indistinguishable from the nations – trodden down and soiled within the culture where it lays bare.

Romans 11:20 True; because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by emunah. Be not arrogant, but fear:
Romans 11:21 For if vuvh spared not the cultivated branches, shomer, He may not spare you either.
Romans 11:22 See therefore the chesed and severity of vuvh: on those who fell, severity; but towards you, chesed, if you continue in His chesed: otherwise you also shall be cut off.
Three distinct sub groups at present that are included amongst YHWH’s one people Israel – there’s only one Israel!
- Enlightened-regenerated Jews – a trans-racial grouping of both Regal Negro’s and the Fellahin, farmers.
- Dispersed Ephraim-Israel – often found mixed within the Anglo Saxon nations – the wild olive branches which have been grafted into the cultivated olive tree.
- Unregenerate Jews – both the Negro and the Palestinian fellahin, the natural branches which have been broken off the cultivated olive tree and trampled by Mohammed – laid waste to Islam – a bare tree – unable to produce fruit.
The Ashkenazi are NOT natural branches of the olive tree as is commonly taught; but an invasive species from the Caucasian Alder (Alnus subcordata) a broken Turkic branch; and the Negro Mohammedan’s are but another invasive species; fallen branches from the Black Alder (Alnus glutinosa). All originating in the Caspian Hyrcanian forest.
Note: this is an exercise in horticultural analogy and anthropology, don’t let the low minded make this into a Zio-socialist cause celebre.
Romans 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in their unbelief, shall be grafted in: for vuvh is able to graft them in again.
Romans 11:24 For if you were cut out of the olive eytz which is uncultivated, and were grafted contrary to nature into a tov olive eytz: how much more shall these, who are the cultivated branches, be grafted into their own olive eytz as well?
Romans 11:25 For I would not, Yisraelite brothers, that you should be ignorant of this mysterious secret, lest you should be wise in your own pride and conceit; that partial blindness/hardneing has happened to Yisrael, until the fullness of the nations–the melo hagoyim–comes in.
Beware of the translators value judgement of V.25.
A) ‘a partial hardening has happened to Israel.’ Or…..
B) ‘hardening has come upon part of Israel.’
“Meros” “part/partial.’ Should it be approached as an adverb? (a) or a noun? (b)
a) an adverbial approach is correct because it gets Paul’s point across; that he’s concerned with the whole lump, NOT just a few individuals; or crumbs here and there.
The unified whole (unified by Yahusha) is partially blind; NOT that only a part is blind.
Until the fullness of the nations–the melo hagoyim–comes in.
Romans 11:26 And so kol Yisrael shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Tzion the Deliverer, and shall turn away wickedness from Yaakov:
Romans 11:27 For this is My brit with them, when I shall take away their sins.
The tree budded, blossomed and grew into Israel, yes,
but it was planted in Genesis 12.3!
Romans 11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as far as being the chosen people, they are beloved for the sake of the fathers.
Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of vuvh are without repentance.
Romans 11:30 For as you in times past have not believed vuvh, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
Romans 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may re-obtain mercy/rachamim.
Romans 11:32 For vuvh has put all Yisrael in various forms of unbelief, that He might have mercy/rachamim upon kol Yisrael.
Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of vuvh! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!
Romans 11:34 For who has really known the mind of the Master vuvh? Or, who has been His advisor?
Romans 11:35 Or, who has first given anything to Him, in order to receive something back from Him?
Romans 11:36 For from Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory le-olam-va-ed. Amein.
Error: an olive tree with natural branches of the Jewish people, a Jewish olive tree. To teach that the olive tree of Romans chapter 11 is Jewish and that the branches that are grafted in are gentiles, is false!
The two olive trees of Zechariah 4. The unsolved mystery contained in Chapter 4 of Zechariah.
Zechariah 4:3 two olive-trees are by it, one on the right of the bowl, and one on its left…..what are these? …..V.11 And I answer and say unto him, ‘What are these two olive-trees, on the right of the candlestick, and on its left?’And I answer a second time, and say unto him, ‘What are the two branches of the olive trees that, by means of the two golden pipes, are emptying out of themselves the oil?’And he speaketh unto me, saying, ‘Do you not know what these are?’ And I say, ‘No, my lord.’And he saith, ‘These are my two anointed ones, who are standing by the Master of the whole earth.’
Leviticus 7:36 Who’s YHWH’s anointed one that turned into two – two houses: Which יהוה commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever throughout their generations. The anointing is always over Israel.
The blind leading the blind. Asked what are the these, in regard to the two houses of Israel, most answer, ‘I don’t know’.
The heavenly vision never having been revealed to him.
The two olive trees are the Two Houses of Israel (Isaiah 8:14, Jeremiah 31:31, Jeremiah 11:16-17), Two Nations (Ezekiel 35:10), Two Chosen Families (Jeremiah 33:24), Two Backslidden Sisters (Ezekiel 23:2-4), Two Olive Branches (Zechariah 4:11-14, Jeremiah 11:16-17), Two Sticks (Ezekiel 37:15-28), Two Witnesses (Revelation 11:3-4), Two Lamp Stands (Revelation 11:3),Two Spies from Efrayim and Judah (Numbers 13:6), Two Congregations (Revelation 1:20).
Jeremiah 11:16 An olive, green, fair, of goodly fruit,’ Hath יהוה called thy name, At the noise of a great tumult He hath kindled fire against it, And broken have been its thin branches. And יהוה of Hosts, who is planting thee, Hath spoken evil concerning thee, For the evil of the house of Israel, and of the house of Judah, That they have done to themselves, To provoke Me to anger, to make perfume to Baal.
In Jeremiah 11 verse 16, יהוה named the olive tree of His planting.
The olive tree consists of all Israel (Efrayim and Judah). The non-Israelites are
strangers dwelling in Israel through the redemptive work of Messiah, they’ve received a
reprieve and a new life in the one olive tree, One New Man!
Branches from both houses were cut off to make room for the strangers to graft in. YHWH discovered evil in both houses and decided to cut off branches from both
houses, with great tumult and fire.
After their division into two houses, Yahuwah would further the discipline by cutting off all the branches of both trees via fire.
Yahuwah planted one Israel that became two nations through division and eventually both nations were laid bare before all the nations, as branches both natural and unnatural or cultivated and uncultivated were cut off.
Israel, which since 921 BCE includes two divided houses.l.
Jeremiah 2:18-21 18 And now why have you taken the road to Egypt, to drink the mayim of Sihor? Or why do you take the road of Ashshur, to drink the water of the river? 19 Your own wickedness shall correct you, and your backslidings shall reprove you: know therefore and see that it is an evil and bitter thing, in that you have forsaken vuvh your Elohim, and that My fear is not in you, says the Master vuvh tzevaoth. 20 For from old times I have broken your yoke, and cut your cords; and you said, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green eytz you wandered off, playing the harlot. 21 Yet I had planted you as a noble vine, a fully right zera: how then are you turned into the foreign plant of a strange vine before Me?
In Hebrew today the term ‘nokri’ literally means a Gentile. The olive tree of Ephraim had become so degenerate, that it took on the ways and customs of the non-Israelite Gentile nations even going so far as erecting a Christmas tree (Jeremiah 10.3).
Ephraim is returning to the one tree, all the while Jewish Israel at the time of this letter was leaving that same tree, broken off from unbelief. (Poor farmers stayed in the land; converting to Islam in the 7th-10th Century, the wealthy merchant class migrated to W. Africa – establishing the Kingdom Of Juda – the Regal nomadic Negro – both shoots of true Judah became subjects to Islam one through conversion the other through slaving.
Isaiah 8:14, And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the houses of Israel
Genesis 48:19, the patriarch Israel (Jacob), laid his crossed over right hand on the head of his grandson Ephraim and prophesied “and his seed will become melo hagoyim”, or a fullness of gentiles. The zera-seed of Ephraim/Israel, will one day become a “fullness of gentiles”, or a “multitude of gentiles”.
One New Man.
It’s always been about One New Man – a restored house of Israel:
Matthew 19:28 the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Luke 2:25 Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
Luke 24:21 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel.
John 11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of Elohim that were scattered abroad. (Reading the Book of Exodus it becomes obvious the children of Elohim can be no other than the children of Israel)
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 7
How can an adulteress bride return to her husband? Shaul/Paul uses his intimate knowledge of Torah to help the audience awaken to the reality of redemption through Yahusha. If we interpret the verses without a proper knowledge of Torah, we run the risk of creating a false dichotomy between law and grace.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 13 • Part 3
Who is the True Lawgiver, man or Yahuwah? Yahuwah’s government looks nothing like the corrupt government of men. We have responsibilities and requirements for stewarding the life that Yahuwah has blessed us with, and we will be required to answer for our decisions. The only true liberty we can ever find is in walking in Royal Covenant Torah.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 13 • Part 1
Does Shaul/Paul advocate for blind submission to government authority? The first seven verses of Romans 13 have been used and abused by the Institutional Church to establish religio-political authoritarian positions. Scripture advocates for behavior that is lawful to Yahuwah, refuting tyranny that is a terror to good works.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 12 • Part 1
Are you performing your act of reasonable temple service? Shaul/Paul understood that this concept not only started prior to the construction of the tabernacle or temple, but would be vital to Daniel’s prophetic vision of our future. Discover how a willful mistranslation, a Daniel deception, can reshape your eschatological views and harmonize with the whole of Scripture.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 10
Does your zealousness for the Father and His Torah cause you to lose discernment when it comes to the Son? On its own, Torah will not lead us to total righteousness. Only covenant relationship through Yahusha will allow us to enter into forensic righteousness before Yahuwah.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – “All about the Ruach/Spirit”
The Holy Spirit herself doth testify? We take a pause in our study of Romans to reflect on verses 16 and 17 in the eighth chapter to focus specifically on the Ruach Ha Kodesh/Holy Spirit. Join us as we test the traditional understandings of the nature of the Ruach/Spirit against the whole of Scripture and the truth of the text.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 15
Who has been elevated to the priesthood? Shaul/Paul harkens back to language and themes used in Yeshayahu/Isaiah to show that establish the completion of prophecy through Yahusha. Shaul/Paul not only demonstrates that through Messianic Reformation, the Melchizedek Priesthood was established and the fullness of the Gentiles has come in to serve Yahuwah.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 14
Do you cause fellow believers to stumble by your eating? Many have used this passage to establish unbiblical precedents. Shaul/Paul is not doing away with the dietary instructions, but rather establishes standards of building a community and whats causes harm to that community. We are command to exhibit faithfulness with our approach to our food, so not as to condemn ourselves with what we allow.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 9 – Part 1
How should we define biblical Israel? Shaul/Paul draws some distinctions between a physical and spiritual Israel, in order to demonstrate the necessity of an individual to belong to both, to be a fully regenerated Israelite.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 13 • Part 2
Can we follow the instruction of Yahuwah and obey the government? All established government is based upon a theocracy, but the elohim being served is not always Yahuwah. As believers in a world that does not value righteousness, we must remain true to Yah, but we must walk a path of maturity, temperance, and self-control, empowered by the Ruach ha’Kodesh/Holy Spirit.
