Gentile On My Mind

I am not talking about that old song “Gentle on my mind”, I'm talking about the word “Gentile” in the bible, and how its true meaning has been overlooked or intentionally misinterpreted by Christendom. So, what exactly does the word Gentile or Gentiles mean.

The word “Gentiles” in the Strong's Concordance Hebrew dictionary is #1471 and has several different meanings including, a foreign nation, heathen or a people. In the Strong's Concordance Greek dictionary, which covers the new testament the word “Gentiles” is #1484 and also has several different meanings including, a race (as of the same habit), i.e., a tribe, a foreign nation (non-Jewish), pagan, heathen or a people.

In the Webster's dictionary the word “Gentiles”, which comes from the Latin word “Gentilis”, is describes as: One not of the Jewish faith, one of a non-Jewish nation, a Christian, a pagan, a heathen, of or pertaining to a tribe.

I know you have heard the old expression “one size fits all”, well that's exactly what the translators did in using the word “Gentiles” in the bible. Since the word “Gentiles” has different meanings it leaves the reader no choice but to study the scriptures in order to determine the true meaning of the word and put it in its correct context according to the subject.

Now that we know that the word “Gentiles” has several different meanings, I have found that one of the greatest mistaken ideas that most Christians believe is that if they are not a Jew/tribe of Judah, they are simply “Gentiles”, and completely ignore the fact that there was originally twelve tribes of Israel not just the tribe of Judah. Christ came for all of his people/Israel.

We have already talked about the fact that the lost tribes of Israel were not lost in the woods or at sea, but rather had lost their identity and had forgotten their racial heritage as being a part of God’s chosen people Israel.

Today's Christian preachers go so far as to say, “I'm just a Gentile, saved by grace”. They completely ignore Jesus Christ when he states in Matthew chapter 15 verse 24 that he has come only for the lost tribes of Israel.

Verse 24: “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Christ also tells his disciples who to preach to in Matthew chapter 10 verse 6.

Verse 6: “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

You must understand that when reading the scriptures, the word “Gentiles”, which has several different meanings, must be translated in the context in which it is being used. Only the context in which it is used will show you which meaning applies.

An example of what I mean can be found in Matthew chapter 4 verse 15 where we are given the location where Jesus begins his ministry.

Verse 15: “The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles.”

Matthew chapter 4 verse 18 tells us where Jesus begins his call for disciples.

Verse 18: “And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.”

In Matthew chapter 4 verse 23 we are told where Jesus starts his teachings.

Verse 23: “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.”

Jesus begins his ministry in “Galilee of the Gentiles”, Jesus starts his call for disciples in “Galilee of the Gentiles”, and Jesus starts his teaching in “Galilee of the Gentiles”. The context in which the word “Gentiles” is being used in verse 4 can only be interpreted as nation, people, or tribe of Israel.

Remember, the nation of Israel, the people of Israel or the tribes of Israel are exactly who Jesus Christ said he came for as stated in Matthew chapter 15 verse 24.

Verse 24: “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Another example to help understand the correct context in which the word “Gentiles” is being used can be found in Matthew chapter 10 verses 5-6.

Verse 5: “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not.”

Verse 6: “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

In these two verses the word “Gentiles” has a totally different meaning compared to the word “Gentiles” used in Matthew chapter 4 verse 15 which we just covered. In verses 5&6 the meaning of the word “Gentiles” would mean either a foreign nation, pagan or heathen people, in other words non-Israelites.

Is this subject simply too complicated for Christian ministers to comprehend. Are these Christian ministers just too lazy to do the book work to get to the truth? Could it be that they have simply compromised true biblical doctrine in hope of appeasing the seed of Satan the Jew impostors.

For years Christians, and I mean “the true followers of Christ”, have been told that they are “Gentiles”, that they are not of Judah, nor any of the tribes of Israel, this is a lie.

I am not going to go on and on about this subject. Let me just say this, when in doubt I always take the word of Jesus Christ. He clearly told us who He came for, and He clearly told his disciples who to preach to, and that would be the “lost sheep of the house of Israel” that had migrated around the world and had fallen away from their identity and their responsibilities to God.

Now, if anyone were to be under “grace” it would be the lost tribes of Israel, the white Caucasian Adamites. From Adam to Jesus Christ, which includes Israel, all of the same bloodline, the same people.

It is time to wake up to the truth and throw off these lies and deceptions. Finally let us read from the book of Ephesians chapter 4 verses 14, 17&18.

Verse 14: “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.”

Verse 17: “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind.”

Verse 18: “Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.”
