Gifts and caling of God are irrevocable

Romans 11:28 From the standpoint of the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but from the standpoint of God’s choice they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; 29 for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so these also now have been disobedient, that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy. 32 For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.

The "they" is Israel   What is being highlighted is a time when
seemingly they have forfeited their calling, their disobedience is front
and center and seemingly they have been cast aside, 
it is over, 
but MERCY,
 bulldozes through.  
MERCY is exalted, 
MERCY triumphs.  
God's promises
are fulfilled through the most circuitous route possible,
 but they are true, 
because
HE is true.
