Does not the potter have power over the clay?

Does not the potter have power over the clay?
From the same lump to make one vessel for honour and one vessel for dishonour?
What if God wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known endured with much long suffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction.
And that he might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy which he had prepared beforehand for glory.
Even as whom he called; not of the Jews only but also of the Gentiles?
As he says also in Hosea, I will call them my people who were not my people and her beloved who was not beloved.
And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, “you are not my people,” there they shall be called sons of God.

Romans 9; 21-27

Unless the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed

Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel,
Children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, the remnant will be saved
For he will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness,
for the Lord shall make a short work upon the earth.
“Unless the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we would have become like Sodom and we would have been made like Gommorrah.”

Romans 9: 28-29

Righteousness of faith

What shall we say then, that Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith;
But Israel, pursuing righteousness have not attained to the law of righteousness,

Romans 9: 30.

With the heart one believes

For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10: 10

Jew and Greek
There is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon him.
Romans 10 12

Unless they are sent?
But how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things.

Romans 10: 15
