There is definitely a difference when communicating with fellow Christians, fellow Jews, fellow Muslims, and Buddhists. This is just my personal opinion based on my own personal experience and is not meant for a “larger picture.” I am relating stories based on my interaction in conversations.
First of all I want to be clear that the term “gentile” used in this article is not a derogatory term. Clearly the word is used to connotate a negative aspect on most of the forums I read when making my rounds through social media (the good, the bad, and the ugly).
Gentile in this context simply means a person who does not believe in God. The term is generally used to separate cultures: Jews vs Gentiles through propaganda.
If you believe in God, (Muslim, Jewish, Christian) then the word “gentile” does not refer to you. The word only refers to atheist or those who do not believe in a creator God, or the antonym polytheism, a person who believes in multiple gods or worships statues.
Now one can mean the word gentile in a different manner but in general this refers to goyim or nations outside of Israel. These nations do not necessarily believe in YHWH, which make them goyim.
However, the confusion that a Bible believing person is a gentile because you live in a different nation is simply opinion. The real answer is that if you follow Jesus or believe in God and read the bible then you are no longer a gentile, regardless of whatever confusion principles are advertised to you.
Just want to make that clear.
In talking to a Christian, who finds out that I’m Jewish, is usually curious in what I believe. The person most oftentimes will straight out ask me “what do you guys believe?” The perception is that what I believe as religion must somehow be vastly different to what others believe.
This is true in regards to eschatology or Buddhism (I did my thesis on such) and many traditions found within Judaism.
Under examination of my faith and belief in YHWH, I am generally told that “we are not under obligation to the law (mitzvot), but live in faith by grace through Jesus Christ.”
One must first understand that Paul was communicating with goyim (cultures outside of Israel) who are not raised or believe in following Torah. Jesus followed every mitzvot of Torah and communicated such as we are obligated to do under the covenant. Now let me make this clear – THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO GOYIM.
An example of this is the gentile woman who came to Jesus,
Yes we are to live by grace through faith. That means we believe that korbanot is continually met through HaMashiach and we who believe this are confirmed through Ruach HaKodesh as Jesus stated would confirm to those sealed by YHWH.
The statement above opens up many questions for Muslim, Christians, Jews, and Buddhists. Adonai confirms that the whole earth will be filled with His wisdom and Torah and this is so. The #1 book printed is the Bible.
IN THE first century common sense tells you that adult pagan men serving false sophos, sage gods (Greek) and sabatean gods (Roman) that you are not going to educate these men with hundreds of mitzvot when there is no longer a Temple for korbanot.
Thus, the argument that early Christians started a new religion with the Greeks and Romans, a child like misconception either from modern propaganda or simply due to lack of education on the subject.
At any rate, Peter was given a vision of this,
Now many will want to argue and say Peter was having a false vision and so forth. Who cares.
The only end result we care about is whether Ruach HaKodesh comes upon the clean and unclean alike and the answer is yes. For YHWH decides who to make clean or unclean and this is not done by the human hand or mind following mitzvot.
The mitzvot does not make you tamiym (unblemished) only YHWH can do that as the flesh is not clean.
What I talk of here is difficult to understand by many and rightfully so as Eloheinu decided that not all will be able to understand His mysteries freely granted upon mankind through HaMashiach.
Acts 10:28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is of Judah to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
For Jews this is a tough one to accept based on all the ideology brain washed into our heads from our youth. The fact remains that there is no Beis HaMikdash and no korbanot. Every rabbi on the planet has a different opinion on this subject when talking alone concerning sacrificial observance and Kohanim.
I am here to tell you, as many others throughout history, that YHWH has taken away korbanot due to our rebellion and sin.
When the Temple was destroyed by Titus of Rome sacrificial observance was terminated. YHWH made sure of it so that the nations would come into Israel through HaMashiach as a blessing. Rebellious factions, atheists, and some of those who claim to be of YHWH covenant reject this reality as if it didn’t occur over the last 2,000 years by millions, possibly billions of people.
The mere fact of Ruach HaKodesh upon those who claim korbanot through Mashiach is the very reason why many try to build “god helmets” for recreating the feeling of a “god experience” in an attempt to falsely prove that the human mind is causing the experience and not the actual Spirit of Elohim.
Those who do such things will find eternal destruction before YHWH and the host of heaven. Those who do so for the benefit of Science I cannot say nor judge what will become of them for that is up to YHWH to judge.
Many live in an absolute fiction dictating the lives of millions of souls who will listen to their rebellion against YHWH, the same as what caused diaspora.
Gentiles were not obligated to follow/teach mitzvot for one simple reason – that’s our job.
We are instructed to teach the nations mitzvot as we have done so since the beginning.
As Jesus said,
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
It has always been our job and we are not going to pass the buck to the Greeks, the Romans, America, England, Russia, Europe, or organizations who pretend to serve YHWH.
The light of Torah to the world comes through mitzvot, the commandments of God, the creator of the universe, to mankind.
HaMashiach Jesus reinforced this knowledge to a bunch of stuck up, “I’m better than you” lawyers under Roman occupation and they didn’t like that. No one likes to be told their wrong when they OWN the authority and the rule making.
This was verified not one generation later by the destruction of Beit HaMikdash as Jesus foretold would occur.
How do we exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees as Jesus said when back then they had the Temple, the Kohanim, korbanot, the red heifer and everything that we don’t have?
The answer you receive is “we’re waiting for the next Temple but in the mean time Yom Kippur grants you exemption.” Naturally this line of reasoning is anti-mitzvot and anyone who believes this is living in disobedience and is not tamiym. But how can you perform chatat?
HaMashiach Jesus is perpetual chatat, but many have not attained this knowledge yet because they are held back with propaganda reinforced to repress their mind and soul.
The Christian fellow I spoke with believes what Paul stated and he should,
And this is probably one of the most misinterpreted texts out there.
This is simply reiterating what we already know. It is YHWH alone (Ekhad) who saves and can raise up rocks as children if He deems fit to do so. Torah is God’s light of good and evil before humanity. Foundational words translated into all languages of the earth to have as a witness to our conscience in which the light of YHWH instills in man with the culmination of Ruach HaKodesh.
HaMashiach Jesus provided an understanding to the world of entry through that door mentally through language, which if you entered into would receive the mystery of Ruach Hakodesh.
But one can only do so by receiving the knowledge from YHWH that Jesus is the anointed. That’s the difficult part – you must actually know in your mind (or heart if you prefer) that Jesus is of YHWH to receive His spirit. This does 2 things:
- Mental recognition unlocks your souls ability to receive Ruach Hakodesh – an update from YHWH downloading His Spirit into you.
- Verifies the truth of Torah and YHWH word through Ruach Hakodesh download which verifies the truth of Jesus as HaMashiach.
Due to Isaiah prophesy and navi, many have a difficult time understanding these things as they are blocked mentally from this knowledge by YHWH for a reason.
Those who are barred from entry through confusion is based on Navi according to Elohim plan. It is written that when YHWH deems fit all Jews or gentiles who are redeemed will have this mental block or spiritual knowledge unlocked and shackles removed from their rebellion as YHWH promised.
That is why a Jewish person such as myself whose descendants survived shoah with belief in YHWH can receive mercy with the removal of this block only by YHWH to receive Ruach HaKodesh through recognition that Jesus or Yeshua, whichever you choose to call is Mashiach. It’s that simple and yet so very difficult as Jesus stated,
“The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and you receive not our witness.
If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
That whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” John 3:2-21
Know this that Torah is the light and the word and Jesus the anointed of YHWH made that light understood by communicating this to those who lived under a globalist Roman government.
BOTH gentiles and Israelites heard the words of Jesus which opened Torah and Ruach HaKodesh to them.
DON’T BE FOOLED by the charlatans who will not enter into this knowledge according to Navi and will work all the days of their life to keep you from entering in as this leaves them destitue in darkness.
These are the goyim, the gentiles, and apostates who try to block entry of YHWH Ruach Hakodesh to you through HaMashiach Jesus, because they refuse to receive for themselves so they must try to stop you from receiving – simple base jealousy as we know in psychology.
Torah is the light of the world and the more people who enter in through HaMashiach the more darkness fades. Nevi’im tell us, shout to us from the grave, that a YOM YHWH will not be avoided. That this darkness will consume the world after Torah and HaMashiach is made known to all tongues, languages, and people of the earth.
When Peter witnessed the Holy Spirit land on gentiles he finally understood that God was cleansing all who come to Him through faith like Abraham and that korbanot was an instruction of how good and obedient we were required to be for the spirit of Elohim to walk amidst Israel.
The Lord showed us that we utterly failed in this obedience – miserably failed. Not only did we fail but we chose to worship false gods, chose to serve Kings and nations over serving YHWH, and that humanity would manipulate and twist the words of Ekhad for their own diabolical purpose rather than understand Torah or Mashiach.
Moreover, the lawyers rejected HaMashiach for proof that their ancestors killed the Nevi’im as prophecy states and sealed their fate. This is why factions this day fight in rebellion to YHWH manipulating everything with confusion as the prophecy is clear on the divided, scattered seed of Simeon and Levi and the blessing of the seed of Judah,
YHWH has made this true then and today. Obviously the covenant of God, His mitzvot are displayed to the world through the seed of Jacob which is now Israel as a legally defined nation since 1948.
As gentiles who have been led to the light of Torah through HaMashiach you become family saved not by works of your hands, or your obedience by will. For we have already proven that this is impossible a thousand years before YHWH redeemed us through HaMashiach Jesus.
Gentiles cannot know the mysteries of korbanot, nor can you perform them. You are not allowed to serve in the Temple nor are you allowed to display Temple copy cats like “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” One can do so and you will eventually have to meet your maker and explain yourself.
This is for Levite and Kohanim service for all generations and yet YHWH removed this for 2,000 years and many of you still do not understand why and rebel at the answer you are given!
So yes gentiles are to come into Torah light through Mashiach, all nations. Not everyone will understand this as Isaiah foretold. Those who do not understand this still look for Mashiach to arrive which will be Epiphanes reborn as Tzadik to usher in the last YOM YHWH of the age. Even the Buddhists like George Lucas know this.
Who can understand such things let alone the difficulty of korbanot by those who cannot perform such?
In this age we live, vast technological enterprise where medical science is the god of the nations intent on duplicating humanity in their own image. Doomed to fail and to be laid waste upon YOM YHWH to come.
Rejoice gentiles for receiving HaMashiach and deliverance. Rejoice those who have received Ruach HaKodesh, for you have received that which many over all eternity will never receive. Rejoice those who serve YHWH in both mitzvot and through HaMashiach Jesus as you can only do so by being sealed of Eloheinu the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
May YHWH grant us the grace to serve Him and have mercy upon our sin in which Jesus paid our toll as the everlasting lamb of YHWH redeeming all who He has reserved unto Himself. Amen.
