Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 11:36

_ _ For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom — “to Him”

_ _ be glory for ever. Amen — Thus worthily — with a brevity only equaled by its sublimity — does the apostle here sum up this whole matter. “OF Him are all things,” as their eternal Source: “THROUGH HIM are all things,” inasmuch as He brings all to pass which in His eternal counsels He purposed: “To Him are all things,” as being His own last End; the manifestation of the glory of His own perfections being the ultimate, because the highest possible, design of all His procedure from first to last.

_ _ On this rich chapter, Note,

_ _ (1) It is an unspeakable consolation to know that in times of deepest religious declension and most extensive defection from the truth, the lamp of God has never been permitted to go out, and that a faithful remnant has ever existed — a remnant larger than their own drooping spirits could easily believe (Romans 11:1-5).

_ _ (2) The preservation of this remnant, even as their separation at the first, is all of mere grace (Romans 11:5, Romans 11:6).

_ _ (3) When individuals and communities, after many fruitless warnings, are abandoned of God, they go from bad to worse (Romans 11:7-10).

_ _ (4) God has so ordered His dealings with the great divisions of mankind, “that no flesh should glory in His presence.” Gentile and Jew have each in turn been “shut up to unbelief,” that each in turn may experience the “mercy” which saves the chief of sinners (Romans 11:11-32).

_ _ (5) As we are “justified by faith,” so are we “kept by the power of God through faith” — faith alone — unto salvation (Romans 11:20-32).

_ _ (6) God’s covenant with Abraham and his natural seed is a perpetual covenant, in equal force under the Gospel as before it. Therefore it is, that the Jews as a nation still survive, in spite of all the laws which, in similar circumstances, have either extinguished or destroyed the identity of other nations. And therefore it is that the Jews as a nation will yet be restored to the family of God, through the subjection of their proud hearts to Him whom they have pierced. And as believing Gentiles will be honored to be the instruments of this stupendous change, so shall the vast Gentile world reap such benefit from it, that it shall be like the communication of life to them from the dead.

_ _ (7) Thus has the Christian Church the highest motive to the establishment and vigorous prosecution of missions to the Jews; God having not only promised that there shall be a remnant of them gathered in every age, but pledged Himself to the final ingathering of the whole nation assigned the honor of that ingathering to the Gentile Church, and assured them that the event, when it does arrive, shall have a life-giving effect upon the whole world (Romans 11:12-16, Romans 11:26-31).

_ _ (8) Those who think that in all the evangelical prophecies of the Old Testament the terms “Jacob,” “Israel,” etc., are to be understood solely of the Christian Church, would appear to read the Old Testament differently from the apostle, who, from the use of those very terms in Old Testament prophecy, draws arguments to prove that God has mercy in store for the natural Israel (Romans 11:26, Romans 11:27).

_ _ (9) Mere intellectual investigations into divine truth in general, and the sense of the living oracles in particular, as they have a hardening effect, so they are a great contrast to the spirit of our apostle, whose lengthened sketch of God’s majestic procedure towards men in Christ Jesus ends here in a burst of admiration, which loses itself in the still loftier frame of adoration (Romans 11:33-36).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 11:36

Of him — As the Creator. Through him — As the Preserver. To him — As the ultimate end, are all things. To him be the glory of his riches, wisdom, knowledge. Amen — A concluding word, in which the affection of the apostle, when it is come to the height, shuts up all.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 11:36

For of him, and through him, and to (k) him, [are] all things: to whom [be] glory for ever. Amen.

(k) That is, for God, to whose glory all things are ascribed, not only things that were made, but especially his new works which he works in his elect.
