An examination of this word, and how it came into the English language from the Bible, shows that it was evidently coined by the translators of the Authorized Version to their individualistic understanding that excluded the main national theme of Israel from the New Testament. Ignorant of the whereabouts of dispersed Israel and the Nation building in the Isles of the West, they considered "Israel" and "Jew" as interchangeable terms as denoting the same people mostly resident in the Holy Land and nearby districts. In other words, the translators had no clue that the tribes of Jacob Israel had migrated away from the Promised Land before, during, and after the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities. They went out and settled Europe and eventually America. Only the southern tribes of the House of Judah (and some of the northern House of Israel) returned to Jerusalem after Babylonian captivity. These rebuilt the temple, re instituted the law, and brought in the Messiah.
The translators used the word "Gentile" to describe all peoples other than those termed "Israel" or "Jew." They took great liberties in the New Testament, in translating the Greek word ethnos in a variety of ways - Gentiles 93 times, heathen 5 times, nation 64 times, people twice with the greatest inconsistency including the Greek word hellen, which they also indiscriminately rendered "Gentile."
Church leaders erroneously read the Pauline Epistles as addressed to alien peoples of non-Israel race - termed "Gentiles."
In doing so they introduce doctrine so full of contradictions as to subvert the Gospel of the Kingdom as taught by Christ and the message the Apostles were commanded by HIM to expound to the lost sheep of Israel and not alien "Gentiles".
The lost sheep are the Israelites that left the area after the Assyrian captivity (745 BC) and Babylonian captivity (538 BC) and did not return to Jerusalem. They are referred to as the dispersion or the dispersed of Israel. It was these non returnees that went on to settle the white nations of the world. Since they left, they lost and forgot their heritage, laws, and God (Yahweh). They adopted the traditions and lifestyles of the other nations (races). In other words, they became pagans.
When Yahshua Christ came, it was only the House of Judah (and some of the House of Israel) that was still living in Jerusalem. Christ revealed Himself and His works to Judah, it was His apostles and Paul that He sent to the dispersed of the House of Israel to preach the gospel. Not to alien races and other peoples that were not Israelites or of the race of Adam.
The phrase “save the tents of Judah first”, are a reference of Christ's ministry. The House of Judah were the Israelites of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin that returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity. Christ walked with these kinsmen, the apostles. Paul continued the message to the “lost” or dispersed Israelites of the House of Israel, which were scattered across the empire, and settling Europe.
The “churches” teach that these Israelites disappeared and the “church” took their place. Find that in scripture. You won't because it is a doctrine of man.
The true Kingdom Gospel - covered by the Mystery of the Kingdom -, was revealed only to HIS Disciples and those who had ears to hear. Matthew 13:10-11
Blind Israel was not immediately receptive to the message and those of the early centuries A.D. - lost in a maze of Christian dogmas - had relegated God's Servant Nation to the limbo of forgotten legend.
In the light of new knowledge the old mistakes can be accounted for. It can now be seen that the Bible contains a "cover story" implanted for the very purpose of concealing Israel from the world at large.
Instead of following the unchanging purpose of Yahweh in the Israel race and the political base of the Gospel of the Kingdom, Christians were carried away with the individual aspects of personal salvation and substituted a gospel that excluded the national theme.
Undoubtedly the translators of the A.V., biased by this attitude, misapplied the meaning of the original word for nation and substituted religious connotations to it - such as "Jews" and "Christians." In proof of this corruption see our modern English dictionaries, which continued to perpetuate the error, an example - according to "The New Hamlyn Encyclopedic World Dictionary":
"Gentile = of or pertaining to any people not Jewish."
The absurdity of such an error is profound, and that it should have been handed down to this day and age without correction, shows to what an extent tradition may lead astray. The muddle can only be solved by accurate definitions:
"Jewish" denotes a person professing - "the Jews' religion" - (Gal. 1:13) and is not applicable to a race.
Directly opposed to the above, gens, the root stem of Gentile, appertains to people belonging to the same family, clan or nation - and NOT to a heterogeneous collection of many different races of people.
Paul persecuted the assemblies, the gathered groups of 'called out' Israelites. There were no “churches” in that time. There was the Temple, and there were places where they gathered, like in an assembly hall, theater, homes and riversides. The “churches” today are a clerical order which is not scriptural, and is a brainwashing factory that fools God's people into thinking that they are gentile, adopted, grafted in non-Israelites that are “saved” by their own declaration.
The Jew's religion is referring to Judaism. The law of Moses perverted, rewritten into the 'traditions of men' to suit their own agendas.
The religious sect, controlled by Edomite Jews, profited by controlling the people with their 'doctrines of men, or traditions of the elders', which is Judaism, Communism, Talmudism.
Paul is proving that he, being an Israelite of the tribe of Benjamin, profited by this anti-Christ religion as a Pharisee, over his own nation, kinsmen, race, and that the Edomite Jews were the controlling sect.
Now the word gentile is a translation of the Hebrew word goi (singular) and goyim (plural) and the Greek word ethnos (singular) and ethne (plural). Using the word gentile to translate these words is often misleading because it is a misapplication of the Hebrew and Greek words as used in the Bible. The modern use of the word has come to mean non-Jew or non-Israel, but that meaning cannot be maintained in the face of the evidence presented in this study.
One important thing to always keep in mind is that goi and ethnos are collective nouns and cannot properly be translated to mean an individual person. They always refer to a group. There is no such thing as A GENTILE; it is always plural.
Attention should also be called to another Greek word erroneously translated gentiles. The word is Hellen and means Greeks or speaking people.
By using the same method of reasoning we could quote Galatians 3:28 and prove that God does not recognize any distinction in the human race; then we could go to the other extreme and quote Colossians 3:11 to prove that God recognizes eight divisions of mankind. In both cases we would be taking the verses out of their context just as these translators have done. But all the confusion over this text would have been avoided if the word Greeks had been used instead of gentiles.
Baptized means immersion. The immersion in knowledge and understanding. Water baptism was only done by John the Baptist and exclusively for Christ. John was a Levitical priest and his purpose was to cleanse the priesthood and prepare Christ, by water baptism, for His coming sacrifice. Water does nothing for us, but being immersed in knowledge and understanding does.
The word Jew is an incorrect translation of the word Judaean. Referring to those of the House of Judah. The Jews are NOT Israel, they are descendants of Cain and of Esau.
Christ was a descendant of Adam, through the line of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Judah, David, and Mary. Queen Elizabeth II is also of the line of Judah. Christ came only for His people (race). He Himself states this in Matthew 15:24
The apostate, lost Israelite man, the old man who walked corruptly.
Shed your “church” knowledge and renew your Spirit knowledge. These corrections and restorations of scripture are presented to show how opposite the teachings of the “churches” are compared to what scripture says.
The last part should read: 'but altogether and in all ways Anointed.' Christ does not always refer to the man, it often refers to the people, the people of Abraham's seed.
And Jew should be Judaean.
Who are the 'elect'? The “believers”? No. Who was dedicated on the alter to Yahweh? The seed of Abraham. Isaac. The Anointed, called out, set apart, holy and sanctified children of Israel.
Beside these two examples, there are four other places where Hellen has been translated gentiles where it should have been translated Greeks. These are found in Romans 2:9,10; 3:9; and I Corinthians 12:13.
The Judaeans first because they had the law and should have known better, and of the Hellen (Greeks), meaning the dispersed 10 tribes of Israel, because they were children of the covenant as well. The Greeks were also part of the dispersed tribes.
The law was given only to the children of Israel on Mount Sinai. Those who broke the law were under sin. Many of the Greeks (Hellen) were dispersed Israelites and part of the body of the Anointed.
Judaeans (of the House of Judah) or Greeks (of the dispersed House of Israel). The promises and covenants made to the children of Israel included both Houses.
The so called “churches” in this country, as elsewhere in the world, are corrupted with the trappings of Jewish fables and false doctrines detrimental to the true Israel people of scripture; that is, the Anglo Saxon, Celtic, Scandinavian, Germanic and kindred peoples that comprise the twelve tribes, to whom the Holy Bible is exclusively about.
Regrettably, the White race has an unwarranted legacy of being in the middle of a secular and religious expression that has authored a great deal of confusion. It has created a false identity with just one word: Gentiles.
The intent of God's Word, before it was translated into English, revolved around a physical seedline of people. The word 'gentile' has created so much misunderstanding, that the wrong people are identified as to whom God has chosen to do His will upon the earth.
The Latin adjective also meant "of or belonging to the same nation," hence, as a noun, gentiles (plural) might mean "men of family; persons belonging to the same family; fellow countrymen, kinsmen,
The term "gentiles" is derived from Latin, used for contextual translation, and not an original Hebrew or Greek word from the Bible. The original words goy and ethnos refer to "peoples" or "nations" and is applied to both Israelites and non-Israelites in the Bible.
It should also be pointed out that if the word 'gentile' means a non-Jew or non-Israel, it should not appear in Scripture at this point in history, because Jacob-Israel is several generations away from being born. As Jacob is the father of the Israelites.
It is safe to say that all of Israel is of Adam, but not all Adamites are of Israel. Both are of the White race and the New Testament addresses both Adamites and the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Because there are over 600 times that the word nations is used we will not list every one of them but only the ones that show how incorrect the KJV translators recorded them.
The Word of Yahweh given to the prophets were truly inspired, but it must be understood that the translators were not necessarily inspired.
H1471 is the Hebrew word goy.
It does NOT mean non-Jew. The word means a nation, or race of people. Sometimes it refers to the nations of Israel, sometimes the nations of the Canaanites. The context always refers to a certain group of the same peoples.
The translators used the words Gentiles, nations, heathen and people for this word.
It will be demonstrated with a few verses that the misuse of the word Gentiles is not only incorrect, but used to deceive us.
Both Gentiles and nations come from H1471.
Why did the translators use 2 different words?
They also reveal the first deception of the word Gentile. Here in verse 5, the context is showing the generations of the sons of Japheth and their lands.
Speaking to Abram. Nation is from H1471. Is Yahweh going to make of Abram's seed a great Gentile? I thought Abram was a Jew, according to the “churches”. How is Abram's seed going to be non-Jew?
The nations that came from Abraham are the nations of Jacob Israel. Jacob's 12 sons are the fathers of the white nations of the world today.
It would make no sense to use Gentiles in place of nations.
Ishmael was the son of Hagar and Abraham. Ishmael was the father of the original Arabs, which were white. Today they are a mixed dark race, as the word Arab means to grow dark, or mix.
If the word Gentile was accurate, this verse would state that two Gentiles are in Rebekah's womb. If Rebekah was a Jew, how could two Jews be in her belly?
The two nations are Jacob and Esau. Jacob is the father of the Israelites. Esau is the father of the Edomite Jews. Esau was a pure white man, but he married Canaanites and as a result, his descendants were the race mixed seed of Jews. A different race than that of Jacob. Canaanites were descendants of Cain and others that they mixed with. Jacob's children are the pure seed and only Anointed seed chosen by Yahweh. The Jews hate us and want to destroy us, hence Genesis 3:15, the enmity.
Here Yahweh's covenant is with our ancestors. He distinguishes our race from the other races.
He goes on to say He will drive out the Canaanite nations.
Heathen is referring to other nations of people. It also can refer to our people that act and live as the heathen.
In verse 43, with and and are italicized. These words were added by the translators, and is a deception implying that others outside the covenants and promises He made with Israel are for everyone too. His nations, land, and people are all the same, Israelites. The other races are not included, as the mistranslation and deception implies.
The translators recorded people here from H1471. These are Israelites, so Gentiles would not have made sense. Just another proof that Gentiles is incorrect.
People is also used in verses 5:6,8 and 10:13, all referring to Israelites.
Both people and nations are from H1471. Verse 20 is referring to the nations of Israel and verse 21 refers to the nations of the Canaanites.
Solomon race mixed with other nations (races).
If heathen is H1471, the same as Gentile H1471, and we are Gentiles, I guess we will be destroyed for ever and ever.
Thank Yahweh that we are not Gentiles. If the Jews and the “church” definition of Gentiles was accurate, we don't have a chance.
If we are all Gentiles, I guess we will all be laughed at and in derision.
Fortunately this verse is referring to the other nations (races) and those of us that follow them.
If you believe the “church” meaning of Gentiles, then you defile the temple and Yahweh's inheritance.
These nations are the nations of Israel. Israel was scattered and peeled for their disobedience. The rivers that spoiled are the other races that feed off the blessings of Yahweh. Today, we in America, and the other white nations of the world, are trodden down by the other races.
This is a good one. Four times H1471 is used. If Gentiles was the correct word, it would read:
Lo, I will bring a Gentiles upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith Yahweh: it is a mighty Gentiles, it is an ancient Gentiles, a Gentiles whose language you knowest not, neither understandest what they say.
Well, the nation referred to here are the Babylonians.
If the Jews are Israel, how can they cease from being a Gentiles?
The other races are forbidden to enter the congregation (sanctuary) of the children of Israel.
If we were Gentiles, we would not even be able to enter into the sanctuaries and congregations of Yahweh's house.
The context is the children of Israel. Israel was a rebellious nation of people, not a rebellious Gentiles.
Prophecy against Seir, the mountain of the Edomite Jews.
The name Seir is also a metaphor to describe the children of Esau wherever they go.
They still do this today. Observe our politicians, leaders, directors, law makers, company heads. All sectors of our society. Medical, agricultural, educational, Hollywood, everywhere. Most all are Jews and the rest are working for the Jews. They are the impostors of our heritage and this deception will not go unnoticed.
These are the Canaanite and Edomite Jews.
These two nations would be Israel and Judah.
The Edomites moved in when Judah was taken into Babylonian captivity.
This is how they later infiltrated and overtook the priesthood of Israel by the time of Christ. The Sadducees were all Edomites and the Pharisees were mostly all Edomite, save Nicodemus and a few others.
The Jew's Bible the Talmud says that even God asks the advise of a Jew (Rabbi) before making a decision.
So in verse 10, Yahweh is not talking about two Gentiles, He is talking about the two houses of Judah and Israel.
Now the New Testament
The Greek word for nations is G1484, ethnos.
It is incorrect to use Gentiles. Gentiles is a Latin word.
Ethnos means the same as the Hebrew word goy (H1471). A nation or race of people.
G1484 is uses 164 times as Gentiles, nation and people.
The New Testament is a continuation of the same people of the Old Testament. The children of Israel.
The “churches” teach that the OT is the Jews and the NT is for the “church”. This is another lie.
A few key verses will demonstrate the inaccuracy and deception of the word Gentiles.
If the “churches” say that the NT is about the “church” and for the Gentiles, then why is Christ commanding the twelve to NOT go to the Gentiles?
Christ is telling His apostles to go to the children of Israel. The white nations.
Occupancy, opportunity, and people.
Noteworthy: 'nation' is G1484, the same word that “Gentile” is used for. So by Jewish and “church” definition, the Jews are Gentiles.
Their position of authority was in jeopardy because Christ was exposing them.
Caiaphas was talking about his own nation, the Edomite Jews.
Christ's message threatened the position of the Jews, Caiaphas said that Christ must die for His people instead of what would happen to Caiaphas' kindred if Christ lived.
Caiaphas knew that Christ came for His people who were among the Judaeans, and that those scattered abroad were also His people, the “lost”, or dispersed Nations of Israel.
Now the Edomites are full aware of the real threat.
Verse 35 would make no sense if nation was Gentiles.
Out of every Gentiles under heaven would make no sense.
The original Greek reads: 15 But the Prince said to him “Go! For he is a vessel chosen by Me who is to bear My Name before both the Nations and kings of the sons of Israel.
Verse 15 is not referring to three different groups. They are all of the same nation (race). Paul was sent by Christ to teach the nations, kings, and children of Israel of the gospel, which is exclusively for the kinsmen of Christ. The lost sheep.
The circumcision is the House of Judah, those that came back from Babylonian captivity to Jerusalem.
The Gentiles, which should read nations, meaning the Israelites that did not return to Jerusalem, also received the Holy Spirit. This was because both houses are Israelites.
Not Gentiles, it should be nations. Meaning the dispersed house of Israel.
The houses of Judah and Israel forgot that they were brethren after captivity. Judah kept the laws and traditions and Israel lost and forgot them and became pagan. The gospel is what brought them back together.
Yahweh destroyed seven Gentiles? No, seven nations, Canaanite nations.
Remember Zechariah 12:7. It was necessary for Paul to bring the word to the true Israelite Judaeans first, because they were the tribes that returned to Jerusalem to preserve the law and bring in the Messiah, according to the flesh. He was born of the line of Judah and Levi, hence Christ is our King and High Priest.
Gentiles in verse 46 should be nations, meaning dispersed Israel.
Christ's death reconciled both houses of Judah and Israel. Both were parties of the covenants and promises made to Abraham by Yahweh. No other people, race or nation was part of this inheritance.
Conversion of the nations, the dispersed nations of Israel. If it were Gentiles, then they would not have called them brethren. Brethren are of the same race.
Only the children of Israel are called by Yahweh's name.
When the gospel came to the dispersed nations of Israel, they turned from paganism and returned to Yahweh.
'blood' is not supposed to be there. It was added to support universalism.
The original Greek reads: 26
The context is still and always the generations of Adam. Adam's blood. The race of Adam.
The “churches” teach that anyone can become God's offspring, even spiritually.
The scriptures teach that offspring are literal descendants, literal seed, literally His family.
Verse 26 is correct, in that the context is always the children of Israel. The nations of Israel.
'nation' is G1484 and by perversion should be 'gentile'. And if Paul is a Jew, how can his nation be non-Jew? Search the scriptures, for the truth IS in them.
The promise of this seed can be traced from Gen 3:15, 22:18, and 26:4.
In verse 4, Paul's own nation, not Paul's own Gentiles.
Paul's nation was not Gentiles.
Salvation is for the race that Yahweh planted in the earth. The race of Adam. This salvation was made known through the gospel to the nations of Israel that were scattered.
If Yahweh gives salvation to any and everybody, then why have a chosen, peculiar, called out, exclusive nation of people and make promises and covenants with them?
He is a jealous God, in that we not worship any other gods. We should be a jealous people, in that He should not include other races in our heritage and inheritance. And He doesn't. He is exclusive to us, and we should be to Him.
This is a lineal statement of ancestry, the same race, kin, and nation as David.
The KJV does not have 'the' in this verse in front of nations.
The Bible is written by, to, for and about the generations, or race, of Adam (Gen 5:1).To add other races and peoples into the context of the scriptures is to go against God's word. Adam comes from the Hebrew word 'awdawm' which means ruddy, show blood in the face. This describes the caucasian, anglo saxon race.
The older manuscripts have the word 'the' nations. Which nations? The nations of Jacob/Israel.
Paul is stating that they, are also of the same seed line of David.
'to be' is italicized, which means it was added by the translators.
Only the children of Israel are defined by scripture to be 'saints'. Israel is 'called'.
In verses 14-15, the Nations (the dispersed of the 10 Northern tribes of Israel) did things contained in the law by nature, it was because of the law written on our hearts.
One who follows the law by nature shall judge those who have the law and transgress.
Verses 17-27 are about hypocrisy.
The Judaeans who had and practiced the law were no better than the uncircumcised (dispersed Nations) who did not have the law, but practiced the law by nature.
Paul has been contrasting the Judaeans who kept the letter of the law while making sacrifices for atonement, and then hypocritically return to sin, and comparing them with the dispersed who did not have the law, but knew the difference between right and wrong in their hearts.
I know it is confusing, all the lingo.
The Judaeans are referred to as the circumcised. They are basically the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi.
The nations, (wrongly Gentiles), are referred to as the uncircumcised. They are the 10 northern tribes of Israel, Simeon, Issachar, Dan, Ephraim, Manasseh, Gad, Naphtali, Reuben, Asher and Zebulun. They are called the uncircumcision because the were scattered and lost and forgot their heritage, some of which was circumcision. They were still Israelites, but became pagan.
Faith does not void the law, it establishes it.
The Judaeans will be justified by the law. The dispersed nations through the law, because they did not have it, they forgot it.
Notice in verses 17-18 'many', it does not say all nations. This is an exclusive reference to Abraham's seed. Not every nation. Every Israelite nation.
The race of Adam, anglo-saxon, are the Nations of Israel today. We are an innumerable number, just like Yahweh promised Abraham. The Jews do not fit the seed of this promise, there are less than 15 million in the world today.
It wouldn't make much sense to read that Abraham was a father of many Gentiles.
Christ called for His sheep, His sheep were the Judahites in Judaea, which kept the law and traditions, and His sheep were also the nations, which were the Israelites that were scattered and forgot the law and traditions.
The rituals were a stumbling stone, it created a wrong attitude toward the ritual sacrifices of just going through the motions. As if completing or performing an atoning ritual can save you.
The Judaeans used it as a 'get out of jail free card'. They were basically jealous that Christ came for the scattered house of Israel as well. The Judaeans also forgot that the dispersed nations were their brethren. They called them common and uncircumcised.
It would be like us hating Russians or Germans, but we are of the same race and are brothers.
Being found or preached to by Paul. See how Paul did not go preach to the “gentiles', but to the 10 tribes that did not experience the Exodus and were without guidance.
said, Behold Me, behold Me, unto a nation that was not called by My name.
The Israelites that were scattered and dispersed fell deep into paganism, they forgot Yahweh and His name and laws.
Romans is a letter to the Judahites that lived in Rome. One of Jacob's 12 sons was Judah. Judah had Pharez and Zarah. Christ is from the line of Pharez. The Zarahites left Egypt before the Exodus and went on to settle Troy and eventually Rome. Some even settled Spain. These are some of the dispersed that lost and forgot their roots. These are the 'wild olives' whose branches were broken off.
Paul is saying for Judaeans who had the law, to not be jealous of the dispersed nations who did not have the law but are Israelites as well and receive the same grace (favor).
There is a resurrection for cast off Israel (dispersed 10) as well.
The captivities were because of disobedience, it was a divorce, Israel was cast off and forgot their heritage. But they were still Israel. Christ reconciled the children of Israel, both near and far.
To know the mystery you have to know the history.
Paul emphasizes that the dispersed 10 are Israelites as well, so don't be jealous, they are your brethren.
The dispersed nations were known for this, why?, they forgot their laws.
This is an Israelite law.
Paul refers to the Corinthians as brethren, the same kin or race, the only race with Yahweh's Spirit.
As explained earlier, 'Gentile' does NOT mean non-Jew, it means a race, nation or tribe. In most every case it should be translated Nations, as in the dispersed nations of the 10 northern tribes of Jacob/Israel. Here though, it should say, 'a people'. These 'people' are the dispersed Israelites. They were carried away in the captivities and became pagan.
'heathen' is a deliberate mistranslation. The Greek word is ethnos (G1484) which means nation, race or people of the same tribe. The 'Nations' that Paul was to preach to was the dispersed nations of the 10 northern tribe kingdom of Israel.
Even Jesus knows who the Nations are, they are 'lost' Israelites of the dispersion. Why would He include Gentiles (non-Israelites) in with kings, and children of Israel? Because 'gentiles' are the 10 northern tribes of Israel that migrated away from the land of Canaan. They forgot who they were and whose they were, Paul was their guide. The “churches” teach that “Gentile” means non-Jew. Gentile is a Latin word meaning, a nation, tribe or people of the same race. It does not belong in the Bible. The word is 'ethnos' in Greek and just describes a certain nation of people, any nation. Most of the time the context is the Nations of Israel. Sometimes it refers to the other nations of people outside of the seed of Jacob.
Peter was the apostle to the circumcision, which is the House of Judah, Israelite Judaeans of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi. These are the people that Christ demonstrated the example to.
Paul was the apostle to the uncircumcision, which is the House of Israel, Israelites of the other 10 tribes, the Nations (wrongly and deliberately translated as “gentiles”).
The circumcised experienced the Exodus and giving of the law. The uncircumcised dispersed before the Exodus. Later on in the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities, these tribes also dispersed and went on to settle Europe.
Only a remnant of the House of Judah returned to Jerusalem.
The “churches” teach that the “gentiles” are non-Israelites and/or heathen. The word 'gentile' is a Latin word that means: nation, kin, or tribe of the same race. Period. You can't add 'non-Israelite' as part of the definition.
The KJV added heathen, where the original texts reveal 'Nations', as in 'of Israel'.
The Nations are the uncircumcised, dispersed Israelites that forgot who they were. They were Israelites outside of Judaea, such as most of the Greeks and peoples of the Roman Empire which stretched into Europe.
When Peter was entertaining the uncircumcised, and the circumcised came around, he pretended not to know the uncircumcised.
Peter was shown in a vision in Acts 10 that the Nations (uncircumcised) were his kinsman and not considered by Yahweh unclean. They were Israelites of the dispersion and under the same promises and redemption as the Judaean Israelites (circumcised). Acts 10 is not about eating pork!
Don't be a hypocrite.
Works of the law is not the 10 commandments. They are ordinances. They are referring to the sacrificial rituals. Before Christ died, the Israelite priesthood performed sacrifice for the atonement of sin. When Christ died, He was the last sacrifice, and the reigning high priest. These rituals were to cease. Many Israelites did not understand this and wanted to continue the rituals. The Judaizers were agitating the people and saying that Paul was doing away with the law (rituals) and these people were upset about it. See Acts 21:18-26
The rituals themselves cannot justify. They are just a schoolmaster for us to learn from.
The allegiance with our Prince is our salvation (preservation).
The Pharisees wanted to keep the rituals because they could control the people.
Notice in verse 16
We are still not to sin.
(Deut 27:26, Jer 11:3)
Doing the law. Righteousness comes from obedience. Lev 18:5, Rom 10:5
No man can change the covenants. But the “churches” do. They include everyone else into the covenants made to Abraham's seed.
The Greek is much clearer:
'Christ' is not always referring to Jesus. Christ means 'anointed'. Called out, set apart.
Some examples are: 1 Sam 2:10,35, 1 Chron 16:22, Psalms 2:2,9, Heb 11:24-26, Lam 4:20, Hab 3:13.
Seed is defined as offspring, posterity. Kind after kind. Sperm, as the “churches” teach, cannot be spiritualized. Those NOT of the race of Abraham can't become the seed of Abraham.
The written law of Moses was given 430 years after the promises were given to Abraham.
The covenant (promise) has nothing to do with the law. Our free gift of salvation is because of the promise, but we can be 'blotted out' if we do not practice and strive for the faith OF Christ.
The Greek: 10
This verse is an idiomatic play on words. Circumcision of the heart is what matters. (Col 2:11) The distinctions of circumcision have become false under a multi racial ungodly government of Judaea. After 150 BC, when John Hyrcanus started circumcising Edomite Jews, the distinctions weren't so obvious.
The KJV translators took a past tense verb, 'alienated' and changed it to a noun 'aliens'. This changes the whole message.
Our ancestors were alienated, put away in punishment, from the Anointed (the group) and were “lost”. Hence, dispersed Israel.
Paul is the apostle to the dispersed Nations of Israel (not “gentiles”).
This is the two sticks prophecy. The middle wall is the hostility of the flesh. The 2 houses united. Judah (the circumcised) and Israel (the uncircumcised).
The 2 Houses of Judah and Israel forgot who they were and had hostility between themselves. Judaeans had the law and the dispersed did not. Judaeans viewed the dispersed Nations as 'common' or profane. Christ's death covered both houses, because they are kinsmen.
The “churches” try to teach that the “Gentiles” are non-Israelites. That the “Gentiles” can claim someone else's inheritance by “believing”.
Both houses are no more strangers to each other, both are Abraham's seed, both are saints (called). Nobody else is included in this inheritance, nor can be added.
The Greek: 26
The word 'generations' comes from 'genos' which means races.
The mystery was 'who the Israelites were'. Because of the dispersion of the House of Israel (the 10 northern tribes), both houses (Israel and Judah) forgot or lost their heritage and kinship to each other.
Christ comes from 'christos', it means anointed. It does not always refer to Christ, but the children of Israel, the group.
The “churches” teach that this is talking about the “church”, or the “Gentiles”.
9 Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not My people, and I will not be your God.
Scripture reveals that our ancestors disobeyed Yahweh. As a result, Yahweh 'put them away in punishment', or 'cast them off', divorced them. This is what the word 'lost' means. Christ came only unto the lost (put away in punishment) sheep of the House of Israel.
Hosea 1:10 is a prophecy, 'it shall come to pass...'. Well, for a few hundred years now, the Jews have successfully deceived us into thinking that they are Israel and we are “Gentiles”.
God does not dwell in a house built with hands, but He dwells in us, and therefore temple of Yahweh is an allegory for His people in the world.
WHO ARE THE GENTILES?
by Bertrand L. Comparet
Taken From Your Heritage
It is unfortunate that most people have so many mistaken ideas about their religion. This is due largely to the many mistranslations of words in the commonly used King James Bible. One of these mistaken ideas is that most of the people of the United States and western Europe, in fact nearly all the Christians in the world, are Gentiles. You hear many of them, even clergymen that should know better say, I’m just a Gentile, saved by grace. I think it is high time that we learned something about one of the most misused words, Gentile.
You may be surprised to know that there is no such word in the Bible, in its original language. Oh yes, I know that you are now riffling through the pages of your King James Bible, looking for some of the many places you will find Gentile in it. However, I said that there was no such word in the original languages. The word was put into it by translators, who changed the wording of the Bible centuries after the last book of the Bible was written.
If you are a good Christian, you will surely agree with me that what the prophets originally wrote, in the books that make up our Bible, was inspired by Yahweh. It was correct as the prophets wrote it. But not one of them wrote in English, because no such language existed until many centuries after the prophets lived.
The Old Testament was written in Hebrew and the New Testament was originally written in the language that Yahshua spoke, Aramaic. This is a Semitic dialect somewhat similar to, but not the same as Hebrew. Aramaic was not generally understood outside of western Asia. So, when Christianity began to spread into southern and southwestern Europe, the New Testament had to be translated into a language which was widely used in Europe.
Greek served this purpose nicely as it was understood by well educated men, over nearly all of Europe, therefore the New Testament was first translated into Greek. Protestant English language translations of the Bible of today, are nearly all translated from the Hebrew manuscripts of the Old Testament and Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. Let’s start at the beginning with the Old Testament.
The word Gentile is not once used in any Hebrew manuscript of the Old Testament. There is a very good reason for this, there is no such word in Hebrew, nor any word that corresponds to it. Everywhere you find the word Gentile used in the Old Testament, it is a mistranslation of the Hebrew word goi, which means nation, the plural form of it is goyim. Since it means nation, why didn’t they translate it correctly? Sometimes they did, but for the most part they translated it to fit the official doctrines of the church of their day. It didn’t matter what violence that did to the true meaning of the word.
The church hierarchy had long since determined what its doctrines should be. If the Bible didn’t agree with them, so much the worse for the Bible. Men were still being burned at the stake, in those days, for heresy. Heresy meant any religious idea which differed from the official doctrines proclaimed by the bishops. The translators did the best the church would allow them to, let’s examine some examples.
In Genesis 12:2 Yahweh said to Abram, “I will make of thee a great nation.” In Hebrew Yahweh said, “I will make of thee a great goi.” It would have been too silly to translate this, “I will make a Gentile of you”, so they correctly translated it nation. In Genesis 25:23 Rebekah was pregnant with the twins Esau and Jacob, while still in her womb, the unborn children were struggling against each other. Rebekah wondered at this, and asked Yahweh what was the meaning of this? Yahweh said to her, “Two goyim are in thy womb.”
Certainly Yahweh was not telling her, you are an adulteress, pregnant with two Gentile children, when your husband is not a Gentile. Yahweh said, “Two nations are in thy womb”, and that is the way it is translated. It is the same word goyim, which elsewhere they generally translate as Gentiles.
Now let’s take some examples from the New Testament. Here the word mistranslated Gentile, is nearly always the Greek word ethnos. This means just exactly nation, the same as the Hebrew word goy.
Luke 7 begins with the incident of a Roman centurion who appealed to Yahshua to heal his servant who was sick and close to dying. The elders of the Jews praised him to Yahshua saying, “He loveth our ethnos and hath built us a synagogue.” These Jews would never praise anyone for loving the Gentiles. The centurion would not have built a synagogue for Gentiles. So, to avoid the absurdity, the translators were forced to translate ethnos correctly as nation.
In John 11:50 we find that the Jewish high priest Caiaphas, was plotting with the chief priests and Pharisees, to murder Yahshua. Caiaphas told them, “it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people, and that the whole ethnos perish not.” Nothing could have pleased this evil [bad-fig]-Jew more than for all the Gentiles to perish, using the word Gentile as we do today. Therefore the translators had to translate ethnos correctly as nation, yet in many places, they mistranslate it Gentile.
The Greek word ethnos simply means nation, it has no pagan, non Israel, or even non Greek connotation. The Greeks distinguished between Greeks and all non Greek people, the non Greeks were called Barbarians. All well educated men of that day knew this. The apostle Paul was a very well educated man, who was quite familiar with the Greek language and its idioms. He recognized this distinction between Greek and Barbarian in Romans 1:14 where he said, “I am debtor both to the Greeks and to the Barbarians.” Therefore Paul never wrote the word Gentile in any of his epistles.
What does this word Gentile mean and from what is it derived? It is derived from the Latin word gentilis, which means one who is not a Roman citizen. If you use the word correctly, then you would have to say that Yahshua and His twelve disciples were all Gentiles. None of them were Roman citizens by birth.
How then is it used at present, when the speaker means to say that someone is non Jewish? About the fourth century A.D., its use was loosely extended to cover more than its original meaning. It was especially applied to those who were heathen or pagan. It became a term for those who were neither Christian nor Jewish. Christians and Jews were generally called just that, Christian or Jew. This was centuries after the last book in the New Testament had been written. The word Gentile was never used by the writer of any book of the Old Testament, because none of them had ever heard of it, as they had never come in contact with Rome.
It was not used by the writer of any book in the New Testament, for there is no such word in the Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek languages. They [the writers of the New Testament books] did not borrow the word from the Latin. If you will look up every place where it is used in the King James Bible, you will see that it is never used in the correct sense, to say that someone is not a Roman citizen. This is the only meaning it had, the only way anybody used it in those days. It was put in by the translators, in an effort to make the Bible say what the translators thought it should have said, therefore it has no authority at all.
Wherever you see the word Gentile in the Bible, remember the correct word is nation, race or people. Sometimes it is used when speaking of Israel nations or the Israelite race, as we have seen in the examples I have given you.
In other instances, the context will show that it is being used for a nation which is non Israelite. Only the context in which it is used will show you which meaning to give it. When used of non Israelite people, perhaps Gentile is as good a word as any, for we seem to have no other in general use. Never be deceived by reading the word Gentile in your Bible, for its only correct meaning is nation or race.
