"Until, until, until " is not a quotation of Scripture. And, there is NO mention of "alyhah," the return to the land, in Romans. I don't need to read page after page til I'm bamboozled about what my original question was. Quote it if the statement exists. It only requires a phrase, only just one in the Authors own Words.
until until until
For the gifts and calling of God are IRREVOCABLE.
38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
"For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, 'BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!'"
Paul tells us when that 'until' happens--after we reach the fulness of the Gentiles [at the end of the age].
Jesus did not mean they would not "see" him in a physical way, observing his flesh, because many of the Jews saw him after he said this, as he made his way to the cross. He must have meant to "see" him in the sense of understanding with their hearts and realizing who he was, their Saviour. He said to his disciples:
22 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.
23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
God has to open our minds, in order that we can see
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
How did those disciples see the Father? Not with eyes of flesh. The same applies to his words in Matthew 23:39, "Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."
On Pentecost, when many thousands of Jews believed, they said, "Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord," about the apostles who preached the gospel.
Jesus illustrated this same principle when he said,
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
