Here's Robert Jewett on Romans 11:26:

It seems most likely that Paul’s “mystery” was believed to include all members of the house of Israel, who, without exception, would be saved ... To whittle back the details of Paul’s vision to more “reasonable” levels, reflecting the fact of their nonfulfillment in the twenty centuries past, undercuts the magnificent scope of the “mystery” that Paul believed he had been given.

As a charismatic, I use arguments of that form - “we mustn’t lower Scripture to our level of experience, but raise our expectation to the level of Scripture” - all the time. I never thought it would come back to bite me on this, though.
