Are you and Gentile?

Ephesians 2:11, Gentiles. Paul says in a number of places that those who come to Yeshua are no longer Gentiles but are the children or seed (literally “sperm,” which is the meaning of the Greek word) of Abraham (Eph 2:11–19; Rom 4:16; 9:8–11; Gal 3:7,9,14,28–29). The word Gentiles as used in the Scriptures (both in the Hebrew and the Greek languages) simply means “ethnic groups or nations.” There are many places in the Scriptures where Jews and Israelites are referred to as “Gentiles.” However, there is no class of people called Gentiles in the spiritual body of Yeshua. Scripture uses the following terms for the redeemed of YHVH: the saints, the called out ones (or church), the body of Yeshua (1 Cor 10:16; 12:27; Eph 4:12) the one new man (Eph 2:15), sons of Elohim (Rom 8:14, 19; Phil 2:15; 1 John 3:1, 2), children of Elohim (Rom 8:16, 21; Gal 3:26; 1 John 3:10), or Abraham’s offspring (Gal 3:29), the bride (Rev 18:23; 21:2, 9; 22:17) for example.

Are you a Gentile without Elohim and without hope?

Are you a Gentile without Elohim and without hope?

Any attempt by anyone to keep the Jew—Gentile division alive within the body of Yeshua is in effect keeping up the middle wall of partition that the Apostle Paul gave his ministry life and eventually his physical life to tearing down (see Eph 2:11–19). It is also going against the clear teaching of the Scriptures, which say that within the spiritual body of Yeshua, there is no longer Jew or Gentile/Greek (Rom 10:12; Gal 3:28; Col 3:11).

The Scriptures reveal that there are only two classifications of people: Israelites and non-Israelites or Gentiles. The former has eternal life because of their relationship with the Elohim of Israel through the Messiah of Israel. The latter group, unless they repent of their sin (i.e., lawlessness or Torahlessness, see 1 John 3:4), will burn in the lake of fire because their names weren’t written in the book of life (Rev 20:11–15).

Whenever Paul uses the term Gentiles, he is either referring to ethnicity, and not using the term as a spiritual designation, or he is using the term Gentile to mean “worldly.” In the latter case, it is a moniker referring to those who are carnal in that they act like gentiles (heathens) who are “without God and without hope” (Eph 2:12).

Throughout the Epistle to the Ephesians (and elsewhere) Paul, when speaking to the believers in that congregation, uses terms like saints, we, us, sons, the church, his body, one new man, one body, fellow citizens, members of the household of Elohim, the whole building, a holy temple, body of Messiah, a perfect man, the whole body, children of light, her, she, and members of his [Yeshua’s] body. In Ephesians, Paul uses the term Gentiles only five times (Eph 23:11; 3:1, 6, 8; 4:17), and this not as the ultimate spiritual designation for redeemed believers who had come from a non-Jewish background. Rather, Paul uses the term Gentiles as he was either referring to their past spiritual history (Eph 2:11; 4:17), to his mission to evangelize non-Jewish people (Eph 3:1, 8), or in stating that Gentiles should take their place as fellow spiritual heirs along with the Jews within the spiritual body of Yeshua (Eph 3:6).

The term Gentile is not a spiritual designation for a redeemed believer, for they have been called out of the Gentile world and have become a member of a special group the Testimony of Yeshuas labels as “the called out ones” or “church” (Gr. ecclesia). Scripture also calls called out ones or redeemed believers saints meaning “set-apart” (Gr. hagios) from the Gentile world that is without Elohim and without hope. Scripture teaches that those who are redeemed or who are “in Messiah” are no longer Gentiles, for they have been grafted into and become part of the nation of Israel (Rom 11:13–24 and Eph 2:11–19). They have become the one new man about which Paul speaks in Ephesians 2:15.

Now that we know that we are really part of a people group called “Redeemed Israel” what does one do with this information? That is up to you. Pray and ask your Father in heaven to help you to live out your new identity as an Israelite.

Many people upon finding out that Scripture actually defines them as Israelites (through the blood of Yeshua, Eph 2:11–16) and not Gentiles, begin to sense a need to begin acting more like Israelites in their lifestyle and beliefs. They become interested in the biblical feasts and Sabbaths of Israel and their life takes on a more Hebraic or Jewish flavor as they see themselves more in the light of the Book of Acts believers. This is a path that you will need to begin to explore. As you go down this journey, please keep in mind the words of Yeshua in Matthew 5:17–19; John 15:15 and the words of the apostles in 1 Corinthians 11:1 and 1 John 2:3–6 along with Romans 7:12,14 and 3:31.

We must also keep in mind that there are only twelve gates through which one can enter the New Jerusalem, and these gates are named after the twelve tribes of Israel (Rev 21:12). There is no Gentile gate! The only way that one will be able to enter the New Jerusalem will be through spiritually identifying with the tribes of Israel. So which tribe are you?

Finally, YHVH, the God of the Bible, never made any covenants with non-Israelite nations—only with the nation of Israel. To be in covenantal relationship with YHVH, one has to accept the Jewish Messiah, and be grafted into the Israelite olive tree through the Messiah and become an Israelite—PERIOD! For example, the writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews clearly states that the New Covenant is made with the two houses of Israel—not the Gentile nations (see Heb 8:8 and Jer 31:31, 33). This may come as a shock to some people reading this, but this is the truth of Scripture.

  1. If you admitted and stated that there are SERVERAL scriptures, called precepts, defining “Gentiles” as an Israelite (specifically one of the Northern Kingdom that has been given a bill of divorce and stripped of the title “Yah’s chosen people” and now called a “Gentile”, written of in Hosea 1 and Ezekiel 37 of a few places), then what precepts do you have that tell you that the Gentiles are some other people of some other nation? The scriptures and prophecies do not support that all-inclusive theory that the world is strongly deluded with. You have already answered your question but since it doesn’t benefit you or your people, you found a way to lie to try and fit yourself in. Isreal is an ethnicity of people. Please read Exodus 2, Isaiah 40 and Isaiah 14 of a few places. Dueteronomy 26:19, among hundreds of other precepts, states that Yah set Israel apart and sanctified us with His law. We are a Holy people to Him, for Him, and a person cannot become a spiritual Israelite just the same as they cannot become a spiritual Phillipino or a spiritual Rothschild (although I bet many people wish they could lol). You are either born one or you are not. You are either of the seed of promise (Issac) or you are of the seed of flesh (Abraham’s othe children). We all come from Adam, but only the seed of Promise (Isaac) bored His Chosen People, Jacob and his offspring. Gentiles mentioned in the old and new covenant are Northern Kingdom Israelites (His chosen people who He sacrificed His son to restore) who were sent into captivity or slavery by our God, YHWH, because of our spiritual harlotry and cut off from being His people until the Horn of our salvation (Christ) is born and raised up to be a Prince and a Priest and to bring repentance and salvation to the lost sheep of the House of ISRAEL. The scriptures must harmonize, and precept must be upon precept. ISsaiah 28:10. If it does not flow with all other scripture, then it is a deception. Whether intentional or not, it is a deception. And if you want to begin using Peter’s work and gospel as justification, although it doesn’t flow, please remember that the 12 were sent to preach the gospel to the Gentiles (the lost sheep of the house of Israel) of which Cornelius was born. There were non-white people in seats of power in the Roman government, so perhaps you need an in-depth archaelogical as well. The adoption (grafting in), the glory, the old and new covenants, the giving of the law, repentance and the Kingdom are only and all for Israel. That fact is supported with the volume of scripture and your theory is not. Remember Romans 9:13? Yah has ordered and issue judgement and destruction on unrepentant Israel and all the other 17 nations of people He created. Read Isaiah, Obadiah, Jeremiah, and Revelation, just a few books of the prophets who do not have anything good to say about the future outcome of these other nations. All of these nations have hurt the TRUE ISRAELITES in some way and Yah is going to avenge His people against these dogs. Even speaking badly or false against an Israelite will kill you. The Elect 144,000 are ALL Israelites. The 1/3, a great multitude in white raiment spoken of in Revelations 7 are ALL Israelites from countries all over the world who speak different languages and may look a little different but all share the same genetic marker of an Israelite. You have been told. Now you have to do some reading without your bias, so that you can know the truth you cannot accept. Bye.
