Today let's consider...There Is NO respect of persons with God....What does this mean?

Do you know why the kings in Israel's history were, (and were meant to be), so rich? This was so that they might rule with true justice, beholden ONLY to God. The rich could not bribe the king, nor could the powerful intimidate him, for he was far richer and more powerful than they. There was only one person over the king, spiritually: the prophet...who kept reminding him of the Word and the claims of God.
Well, God is infinitely richer than all the wealthy rulers, barons, bankers, elites, and money magnates of this world put together, thus there is "no respect of persons with Him." Also, justice is one of His divine attributes, hence it is unthinkable that He should show favoritism.
But now a question: If God is no respecter of persons, why did He favor one nation, Israel, above all the rest and, for many centuries, bless them above all others? The answer: God made a difference to show that "there is NO difference" (Romans 3:22-23). He made an artificial difference, a Dispensational difference, to show that there was no essential difference, no moral difference. He erected a "middle wall of partition" between us to show that that wall must be broken down (Ephesians 2:14-16).
And thus it is that the same God who once said to Israel, "Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant...Unto you first..." (Acts 3:25-26), this same God now says...
"There is NO difference between the Jew and the Greek [Gentile], for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him. For WHOSOEVER shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:12-13).
So There you have it!
