Rightly Dividing The Word

I just saw this

Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God - 1Corinthians 10:32


When God looks at us, He sees only 3 groups of people - the Jews, the non-Jews (Gentiles) and the church.

If God sees 3 groups of people, I suspect that he has 3 quite different endings for each one of them. I think it would be useful if we review our end-time view of each of these three and see if we have inadvertently merged any of these groups together thus not rightly dividing the Word of God.

This "rightly divide" is literally "to make a straight cut". As a tentmaker, Paul would have understood the importance of that. You have to cut the right pieces in order to assemble the whole.
