    Who are of the remnant according to the Election of Grace ?

    Rom 11:5

    Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

    In this scripture Paul is specifically referring to some of his kinsmen according to the flesh. Now however that said, its a mistake to limit the remnant according to the election of grace to just ethnic jews or Pauls kinsmen according to the flesh. Thats as foolish as saying Salvation by Grace is limited to Pauls kinsmen according to the flesh, ethnic jews. Its written of the Gentiles Acts 15:11

    11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we[jews] shall be saved, even as they[gentiles].

    Acts 15:14,17-18

    14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.

    17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

    18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

    This sacred passage speaks to a remnant according to the election of Grace taken out of the gentiles.

    The jews were just as fortunate as the gentiles that God had also reserved in them a remnant according to the election of Grace !
    "... I have my own private opinion that there is no such a thing as
    preaching Christ and him crucified, unless you preach what now-a-days is
    called Calvinism. I have my own ideas, and those I always state boldly. It is
    a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else."

    Charles Spurgeon !

    Amen ! The Remnant according to the Election of Grace Rom. 11:5 are those which consist of only a residue Acts 15:17 KJV of all humanity that Sovereign God Created and reserved for Himself; a discriminate Special People to Him above all people of the earth Deut. 7:6, comprised of both jew and gentile.

    Romans 9-11 deals with ethnic Jews
    In the Body of Christ there is a small number of Jews (ie: remnant)
