Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, proclaimed the gospel to Abraham ahead of time, saying, "All the nations will be blessed in you."
For what does the scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness."
God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew! Do you not know what the scripture says about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel?
Or do you think the scripture means nothing when it says, "The spirit that God caused to live within us has an envious yearning"?
