From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: those made nigh by the blood of Jesus
The word GENTILE means PAGAN.
Ephesians 2 tells us: REMEMBER that at one time you WERE GENTILES. REMEMBER that at THAT time (when you were gentiles), you were separated from Messiah. excluded from all part in Him. aliens from the commonwealth (citizenry) of Israel. utterly estranged and outlawed from the rights of Israel as a nation. strangers. with no share in the Messianic covenant. no right or knowledge in God’s covenant.
BUT THROUGH and BY and IN the BLOOD OF JESUS WE HAVE BEEN MADE NIGH! WE HAVE BEEN BROUGHT NEAR!,
If all distinctions are vanished. if there is no jew nor greek. if we are BORN AGAIN. if we are Abraham’s seed. if we are NO LONGER aliens from the commonwealth (citizenry) of Israel, but CITIZENS. with all of the knowledge and rights of God’s covenant. if we are IN Messiah. if we are His seed. born of His blood. called by His name. if we are the children of the God of Israel. if He is our Lord. if He is our Saviour. if He is our Redeemer. if we are His body. His chosen. His called. if there is only ONE BODY. ONE SPIRIT. ONE LORD. ONE FAITH. ONE BAPTISM. ONE EKKLESIA and ONE HEAD of that EKKLESIA!,
Then we are NO LONGER PAGANS.
Then we are NO LONGER GENTILES.
We are Israel.
