5-23-2013- GENTILE RULES ARE SIMPLE


ACTS 15: 19-21 =

(19) WHEREFORE MY SENTENCE IS THAT WE TROUBLE NOT THEM, WHICH FROM AMONG THE GENTILES, ARE TURNED TO GOD:

(20) BUT THAT WE WRITE UNTO THE GENTILES, THAT THEY ABSTAIN FROM POLLUTION'S OF IDOLS AND FROM FORNICATION, AND FROM THINGS STRANGLED AND FROM BLOOD.

(21) FOR MOSES OF OLD TIME, HAS IN EVERY CITY THEM THAT PREACH HIM, BEING READ IN THE SYNAGOGUES EVERY SABBATH DAY.


"REMARKS"

HERE IN THESE VERSES ON THE SURFACE, SEEMS TO RELEASE THE GENTILES FROM A SABBATH DAY OBSERVANCE, SINCE THEY WERE INTEGRATED INTO JEWISH CHRISTIAN UNITS ALL OVER THE MIDDLE EAST. THOUGH THIS WOULD NOT BE THE CASE AS IS STATED IN THE VERSES ABOVE, IT ACTUALLY CONFERS THAT GENTILES UNDER THE TUTORSHIP OF MOSES AND THE LAW, SINCE MOSES IS THE WRITER OF THE TORAH, THE LAW, GIVES GENTILES A BASIS ON WHICH TO HAVE THEIR LIVES GOVERNED BY THE TEACHINGS OF THE LAW, THE TORAH.

THE ISSUE BURNING IN THIS PORTION OF SCRIPTURE WAS THAT, SOME WERE TRYING TO HAVE GENTILES CIRCUMCISED IN THEIR FLESH AND NOT THEIR HEARTS, BY THE FIRE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. THIS ISSUE OF CIRCUMCISION WAS AGAINST ALL THAT THE JEWISH COMMUNITY WAS TEACHING, UNDER WHICH THE GENTILE PROSELYTES WERE ADHERING TO THE DOCTRINE OF THE APOSTLES, GRACE THROUGH FAITH, WITH THE TORAH, THE LAW, LEADING US TO JESUS, YAH'SHUA.

THE TORAH, THE LAW, WAS CERTAINLY IMPORTANT TO OUTLINE EVERY MANS LOVE FOR GOD, YAH'WEH, AND HIS FELLOW MAN, BUT BEING CIRCUMCISED WAS NOT TO BE A PART OF THIS RITUAL OF THE PAST.

GENTILES ARE RELIEVED OF A LOT OF WHAT OUR JEWISH BROTHERS ARE REQUIRED TO DO, SINCE THEY WERE GIVEN THE ORACLES OF GOD, YAH'WEH.

GENTILES WERE NEVER COMMANDED TO OBSERVE FEASTS DAYS AND OTHER CEREMONIAL DAYS AS THE JEWS WERE BECAUSE, IT WAS LEFT UP TO THEM ON A CHOICE, NOT A COMMAND.

GENTILES ARE A PRIVILEGED LOT, CONCERNING OUR INCLUSION INTO THE CHOSEN NATION OF ISRAEL, NOT BY OUR CHOOSING, BUT BY GODS, YAH'WEHS, GRACE AND HIS MERCY. FOR WITHOUT ISRAELS GOD, YAH'WEH, WE WOULD HAVE NO GOD, LIKE THE GOD OF THE HEBREWS, YAH'WEH.

THE ADOPTION OF GENTILES INTO JEWISH LIFE HAS CERTAINLY TURNED THE CHRISTIAN WORLD UPSIDE DOWN AND LEFT THE CHRISTIAN WORLD IN TRADITIONS OF MAN AND THE CATHOLIC REGIMENT AND NOT GOD, YAH'WEH.

OUR DUTY IS TO FEAR GOD, YAH'WEH, AND TO OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS.
