Are the Gentiles in the New Testament Israelites?


The prophecies concerning the Gospel being preached to the Gentiles was ordained to be preached by Paul, the Benjamite from the days of Benjamin, the Patriarch, to confirm that the Apostle Paul was sent to preach unto the Gentile nations, not only the Hebrews.

 

Testament of Benjamin 11:2

2 And there shall rise up from my seed in the latter times one] beloved of AHAYAH, [hearing upon the earth His voice] and a doer of the good pleasure of His will, [enlightening with new knowledge all the Gentiles, even the light of knowledge, bursting in upon Israel for salvation and tearing away from them like a wolf, and giving to the synagogue of the Gentiles. 3 Until the consummation of the age shall he be in the synagogues of the Gentiles, and among their 4 rulers, as a strain of music in the mouth of all. And he shall be inscribed in the holy books, both 5 his work and his word, and he shall be a chosen one of Alahayim for ever. And through them he shall go to and fro as Jacob my father, saying: He shall fill up that which lacketh of thy tribe].

 

  • This prophecy given by Benjamin was speaking of none other than his posterity, Paul the Apostle.

Rom 11:1 

 I say then, Hath Alahayim cast away his people? Alahayim forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 

 

  • As was prophesied concerning Paul, he was ordained a preacher and a teacher of the Gentiles to “enlighten with new knowledge all the Gentiles, even the light of Knowledge,… and giving to the synagogues of the Gentiles..”

1Ti 2:7 

Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. 

 

  • Paul was ordained a preacher unto the Gentiles by Adono Yache himself, "when he heard His voice from the earth" as the prophecy of Benjamin said he would do.

 

Act 9:1 

 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, 

Act 9:2 

 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. 

Act 9:3 

 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: 

Act 9:4 

 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 

Act 9:5 

And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Yache whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 

Act 9:6 

 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. 

Act 26:16 

 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; 

Act 26:17 

Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, (The People are the Hebrews and the Gentiles are those 70 nations and those reckoned among them.)

Act 26:18 

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto Alahayim, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. 

Act 9:7 

And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. 

Act 9:8 

And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. 

Act 9:9 

And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink. 

Act 9:10 

And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. 

Act 9:11 

 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, 

Act 9:12 

 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. 

Act 9:13 

Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: 

Act 9:14 

And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. 

Act 9:15 

But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: (The scriptures confirm that Paul was sent to the Gentiles and the Children of Israel {12 tribes}, not just the Israelites alone.)

Act 9:16 

 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake. 

Act 22:9 

And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me. 

Act 22:10 

 And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do. (One will see that Paul was appointed to preach to the Gentiles, not just the 12 tribes.)

Act 22:11 

And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus. 

Act 22:12

  And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, 

Act 22:13 

Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him. 

Act 22:14 

And he said, The Alahayim of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. 

Act 22:15  For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard. (Paul was appointed as a witness to all men, not just Israel and Judah, hence he is the Apostle of the Gentiles.)

Act 22:16 

And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. 

Act 22:17 

And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance; 

Act 22:18 

 And saw him saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me. 

Act 22:19 

 And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee: 

Act 22:20 

 And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him. 

Act 22:21 

 And he said unto me, Depart: for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles. (Yache himself, sent Paul unto the Gentiles, not just among the Gentiles, so one can be assured that he preached to the Gentile nations too.)

 

  • Paul labored much in his ministry to the Gentiles and went to preach among and unto them before he had went to meet the Apostles.

 

Gal 1:15 

 But when it pleased Alahayim, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, 

Gal 1:16 

To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: 

Gal 1:17 

Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. 

 

  •  After some years, he finally went up to the Apostles at Jerusalem. On one of those occasions he and Barnabas received the right hand of fellowship from James, Cephas (Peter), and John that he should preach unto the heathen, which are Gentiles, and also called the Uncircumcision, while the other Apostles, James Peter and John, went unto the Circumcision, which are the Hebrews (the 12 tribes)

 

 

Gal 2:7 

But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter

Gal 2:8 

(For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) (Scripture confirms that the Uncircumcision is the Gentiles.)

Gal 2:9 

And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision. 

 

  • It is confirmed that Paul was teaching actual Gentiles, not only Israelites, by his letters as well

Rom 11:13 

For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: (He even spake directly to the Gentiles at certain points in his letters.)

Rom 11:14 

If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. (by precept, those which are his flesh, are the 12 tribes of Israel, so that one can know that the Gentiles are actual Gentiles according to the flesh, not the Northern kingdom or unbelieving Israelites)

Rom 9:3 

For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh

Rom 9:4 

Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of Alahayim, and the promises; (By precept, "them which are my flesh" in Rom 11:14 are "my kinsmen according to the flesh: who are Israelites" so we can know that Paul was speaking to "you Gentiles" to "provoke them which are his flesh" of the House of Israel.)

 

  • In Paul’s letters, it is also confirmed that when he says “gentiles” he is literally referring to Gentiles in the flesh, which are non-Hebrew people from among the 70 gentile nations.

 

Eph 2:11 

Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 

Eph 4:17 

  • This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 

Eph 4:18 

Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of Alahayim through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 

Eph 4:19 

 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 

Eph 4:20 

But ye have not so learned Christ; 

 

  • Paul taught the Gentiles to separate from lust of the flesh in faith and verity, hence he commanded them not to walk as OTHER Gentiles because he was speaking to Gentiles nations, called the Uncircumcision by the Hebrews known as the Circumcision. The mystery of the prophecy that was spoken in the testament of Benjamin was revealed in Paul’s time seeing as though he was the one ordained to preach to synagogue of the Gentiles the light of knowledge. So it was him that led the Gentiles to learn of Christ.

 

Eph 3:1 

For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Yache Christ for you Gentiles

Eph 3:2  If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of Alahayim which is given me to you-ward: 

Eph 3:3 

How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 

Eph 3:4 

Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 

Eph 3:5 

Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 

Eph 3:6 

 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 

Eph 3:7 

 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of Alahayim given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 

Eph 3:8 

Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 

Eph 3:9 

And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in Alahayim, who created all things by Yache Christ: 

Eph 3:10 

To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of Alahayim, 

Eph 3:11 

 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Yache our Lord: 

Eph 3:12 

 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. 

Eph 3:13 

 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. (Paul faced much tribulations for the Gentiles even at the hands of the Jews because the unbelievers of the Jews didn't want the Gentiles to be saved.)

1Th 2:14  

For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of Alahayim which in Judaea are in Christ Yache: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: 
1Th 2:15  Who both killed the Lord Yache, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not Alahayim, and are contrary to all men: 
1Th 2:16  
Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost. 

Any teaching that Paul was ONLY preaching to the House of Israel or 12 tribes or the Northern Kingdom is contrary to the prophecy concerning him by his own father Benjamin, Paul’s own account of who he was speaking to, and truth of the Gospel in sound doctrine. In fact, the precepts in 1Thess 2:16 show that the Jews had been seeking to forbid speaking of the Gospel unto the Gentiles that they may not be saved of old time so that we may know today that it is the same error in heart through the lust of the flesh that is causing these seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

 

Yache was clear when he sent out his apostles that he wanted them to preach to all nations so any doctrine contrary to that is from false prophets and against Christ's commands and what he appointed his disciples to do. The other Apostles spoke unto the Gentiles as well by evidence of their letter to the brethren of the Gentiles (Acts 15:22-23),  Peter went unto Cornelius (Acts 10:24-48), Phillip preaching to the Ethiopian (Acts 8:26-39), and Thomas went to India to convert the Indians. (Acts of Thomas). All their acts show that they were fulfilling the commands of Adono Yache.
Luke 24:46-47
[46]And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
[47]And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Matthew 28:18-20
[18]And Yache came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
[19]Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:
[20]Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

 

 

In the New Testament the Hebrews who were speaking with Yache when he was on earth didn't refer to the Israelites or the Northern Kingdom that were scattered as gentiles to help understand that the Hebrews were not referred to as Gentiles in the New Testament.
 

John 7:35
[35]Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto 
the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?


• The Jews referred to the Hebrews abroad as "the dispersedamong the gentiles, not "of the gentiles." because they were not gentiles. It is also evident that the Jews were wondering if he would teach the Gentiles too, so one can see the separation of the Hebrews as oppose to Gentiles in their speech; they said "the dispersed" which is the Hebrew nation among the gentiles, and then they said "teach the gentiles" which is the 70 gentile nations and those reckoned among them. The Southern Kingdom was aware that the Northern Kingdom was predominantly in Arsareth since the days of Baruch during the Babylonian captivity, so "the dispersed" included the Northern Kingdom. The People that remained in Jerusalem during the Babylonian captivity asked Baruch to send a letter to the brethren in Babylon and he agreed by sending letters to Babylon and he also sent to the Northern kingdom in "the New World" because they are our brethren too.


II Baruch 77:11-16
11 And the whole people answered and said unto me: ’So far as we can recall the good things which the Mighty One has done unto us, we do recall them; and those things which we do not remember He in His mercy knows.

12 Nevertheless, do this for us thy people: write also to our brethren in Babylon an epistle of doctrine and a scroll of hope, that you may confirm them also before you do depart from us. 
13 For the shepherds of Israel have perished, And the lamps which gave light are extinguished, And the fountains have withheld their stream whence we used to drink.

14 And we are left in the darkness, And amid the trees of the forest, And the thirst of the wilderness.’

15 And I answered and said unto them ’Shepherds and lamps and fountains come from the law: And though we depart, yet the law abides.

16 If therefore you have respect to the law, And are intent upon wisdom, A lamp will not be wanting, And a shepherd will not fail, And a fountain will not dry up. 


• Baruch agreed with them and he sent to the Babylonian captivity (southern kingdom) by men because they were near and he sent to the 9.5 tribes, (Northern kingdom) by a bird because there was a long journey to reach them since they were abroad across the Indian and Pacific Ocean in the Americas.

 

II Baruch 77:17-22
17 Nevertheless, as you said unto me,
I will write also unto thy brethren in Babylon, and I will send by means of men, and I will write in like manner to the nine tribes and a half, and send by means of a bird.’ 18 And it came to pass on the one and twentieth day in the eighth month that I, Baruch, came and sat down under the oak under the shadow of the branches, and no man was with me, but I was alone. 19 And I wrote these two epistles: one I sent by an eagle to the nine and a half tribes; and the other I sent to those that were at Babylon by means of three men. 20 And I called the eagle and spoke these words unto it: 21 ’The Most High hath made you that you should be higher than all birds. 22 And now go and tarry not in (any) place, nor enter a nest, nor settle upon any tree, till you have passed over the breadth of the many waters of the river Euphrates, and have gone to the people that dwell there, and cast down to them this epistle. 


• "The many waters" is from Euphrates thru the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean all the way to the islands and lands where the Northern tribes went. They were not in the land of Assyria anymore because Assyria is next to Babylon, even walking distance, so it didn’t take a bird to get to Assyria which confirms that they had left to the land of Arsareth when they agreed to leave from dwelling amongst the heathen.{II Esdras 13:39-45} 

 

II Baruch   78:1-3
78 1 These are the words of that epistle which Baruch the son of Neriah
sent to the nine and a half tribes, which were across the river Euphrates, in which these things were written. 2 Thus says Baruch the son of Neriah to the brethren carried into captivity: ’Mercy and peace.’ I bear in mind, my brethren, the love of Him who created us, who loved us from of old, and never hated us, but above all educated us. 3 And truly I know that behold all we the twelve tribes are bound by one bond, inasmuch as we are born from one father. 


According to the Holy Books, we are one nation from Jacob the Hebrew even when we are sent into captivity or other lands. The bond we are bound by is the covenant to obey Ahayah's voice, the blood sprinkled on us and the books at Sinai, and the circumcision for the seed of Abraham our father. Hence we are referred to as a nation in the New Testament as the Circumcision.

 

II Baruch 78:4-7
4 Wherefore I have been the more careful to leave you the words of this epistle before I die, that you may be comforted regarding the evils which have come upon you, and that you may be grieved also regarding the evil that has befallen thy brethren; and again, also, that you may justify His judgment which 5 He has decreed against you that you should be carried away captive-for what you have suffered is disproportioned to what you have done-in order that, at the last times, you may be found worthy of thy fathers. 6 Therefore, if you consider that ye have now suffered those things for thy good, that you may not finally be condemned and tormented, then you will receive eternal hope; if above all you destroy from thy heart vain error, on account of which you departed hence. 7 For if you so do these things, He will continually remember you, He who always promised on our behalf to those who were more excellent than we, that
He will never forget or forsake us, but with much mercy will gather together again those who were dispersed


This helps understand in the book of John, "the dispersed" was indeed in reference to the nation of the Hebrews which includes the Northern kingdom.




The False Doctrine that Salvation is for the Jews only

 

The false doctrine of the Israelite groups try to make salvation for Israel only but its not according to scripture. Yache said “salvation OF the Jews” which was referring to Him, the salvation of Alahayim, {Luke 2:27-32} OF the Israelites according to the flesh,{Rom 9:5} specifically springing out of Judah. {Heb 7:14} Hence Salvation is OF the Jews because Judah is the tribe  and land that Yache, the Savior, came from.

 

Luk 2:27 

And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Yache, to do for him after the custom of the law, 

Luk 2:28 

 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed Alahayim, and said, 

Luk 2:29 

Ahayah, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: 

Luk 2:30 

 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, (the child Yache in his arms is the Salvation that he seen)

Luk 2:31 

Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; (all people is all nations by evidence of the next verse)

Luk 2:32 

A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. (His people Israel is the 12 tribes and the Gentiles are the rest of the nations of the world to ensure that all people receive an opportunity to be saved.)

Joh 4:22 

Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews

Rom 9:5 

Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, Alahayim blessed for ever. Amen. 

Heb 7:14 

For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.

 

 

The False doctrine that the Northern Kingdom are the Gentiles


One can confirm the Northern Kingdom could not be the Gentiles because of the Promise given to Abraham from Ahayah Alahayim. If the Gentiles are the Northern kingdom, Abraham could not have been a father of MANY nations as he was promised, because the belief that the Northern Kingdom were the Gentiles would make Abraham the father of the Hebrew nation only, not "many nations" as he prophesied to be. The contradiction to the promise given to Abraham confirms that the doctrine that the Gentiles of the New Testament are the Northern Kingdom or other Israelties is false.
Romans 4:17-18
[17](As it is written, 
I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even Alahayim, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
[18]Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

 

  • The only way to be a father of many nations is to be a father of not only the Hebrews, but also them that are called of the other nations that are in the earth. The promise to Abraham debunks the Gentiles being the Northern kingdom the Gentiles are literally many nations, even 70 and the 3 reckoned among them.
    The words of the apostle Paul in Galatians 2:7-9 and Ephesians 2:11 contradict those false teaching as well. Those scriptures make clear distinction of which Apostles were sent to the Hebrew nation and which was sent to the Gentile nations. Peter, James, and John were sent unto the Circumcision, which by their letters, it is evident that “the Circumcision” refers to the 12 tribes. Thus showing that the Uncircumcision is the Gentile nations. Paul said himself, that's who "they would go unto", but not that he would go unto the Circumcision.

Galatians 2:7-9
[7]But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of 
the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
[8](For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward 
the Gentiles:) (its sitting right here that uncircumcision is the gentiles)
[9]And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

• Who is the Circumcision that "they" went to? Their letters give us understanding that it was the 12 tribes scattered abroad.
James 1:1
[1]James, a servant of Alahayim and of the Adono Yache Christ, 
to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad,G1290 greeting.

• The Circumcision is the 12 tribes scattered, which means they were not dwelling in their own land anymore due to being "the Dispersed." They were strangers and foreigners because they were dwelling in a strange land hence Peter referred to them as “strangers” not "gentiles."

Strong's Definition: From G3844and the base of G1927; an alien alongside, that is, a resident foreigner: - pilgrim, stranger

  • The word, stranger, in Peter's letter simply means “stranger, pilgrim” not gentile, so the 12 tribes were not the Gentiles of the New Testament. Thus by precept, the scriptures affirm that the Circumcision to which Peter, James, and John were sent, were the 12 tribes. On the other hand, Paul was sent unto “the heathen" which is the Uncircumcision.

Galatians 2:9

6. the extinction of passions and the removal of spiritual impurity
Strong's Definition: From G4059; 
circumcision (the rite, the condition or the people, literally or figuratively): - X circumcised, circumcision

  • This is referring to the Hebrew nation because all 12 tribes were committed the covenant of circumcision which is the bond that all 12 tribes are under.all we the twelve tribes are bound by one bond, inasmuch as we are born from one father. 

II Baruch 78:3
3 And truly I know that behold 

 

  • Paul himself attested that "we are the circumcision" and his reference was to the stock of Israel (our one father of the 12 tribes), which are the Hebrews and included the whole nation not just the Southern kingdom.

Philippians 3:3-5
[3]For 
we are the circumcision, which worship Alahayim in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Yache, and have no confidence in the flesh(The flesh us our bloodline and being circumcised by evidence of Paul’s explanation.)
[4]Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
[5]
Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

 

  •  “The Circumcision” not only refers to being circumcised but it refers to our whole nation, the stock of Israel the Hebrew.

 

  • Now touching back on Gal 2:7-9, The Uncircumcision that Paul was committed unto are the heathen, which are Gentiles in the flesh. This fact is confirmed by what we just read in Philippians that the Circumcision are the Hebrews and stock of Israel after the flesh.

by implication an uncircumcised (that is, gentile, figuratively unregenerate) state or person: - not circumcised, uncircumcised [with G2192], uncircumcision

Paul himself said the Uncircumcision was committed unto him, not the Circumcision. He confirmed the Uncircumcision is the heathen, which are the Gentiles.
Galatians 2:9
[9]And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto
the heathen, G1484 and they unto the circumcision.
Definition:

G1484
Original: ἔθνος
Transliteration: ethnos
Phonetic: eth'-nos
Thayer Definition:
1. a multitude (whether of men or of beasts) associated or living together
2. a company, troop, swarm
3. a multitude of individuals of the same nature or genus
4. the human family
5. a tribe, nation, people group

6. in the OT, foreign nations not worshipping the true Alahayim, pagans, Gentiles. 
7. Paul uses the term for Gentile Christians


 #6 shows that "heathen/gentile"" was a term in the OT for Foreign nations that didn't worship Alahayim, not the Hebrew nation that didn't worship Alahayim. This is because the scriptures do not use the word Gentile/heathen to refer to Hebrews even if they are "not worshipping the true Alahayim." It is only when they die in their sins are they reckoned among the 70 gentile nations.{Jubilee 44:34}


Strong's Definition: Probably from G1486; a race (as of the same habit), that is, a tribe ; specifically a foreign (non-Jewish) one (usually by implication pagan): - Gentile, heathen, nation, people.


The Circumcision, which are the Hebrews, call Gentiles in the flesh, "the Uncircumcision" which confirms that Paul was sent unto Gentiles in the flesh, not the 12 tribes of Israel only.
Ephesians 2:11
[11]Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

Now in truth, Paul was writing unto the Hebrew Nation (letter of Hebrews and those among the nations) and the Gentiles in the flesh called "the Uncircumcision"  because that is how the promise to Abraham will be fulfilled to be a father of many nations by having the many nations (the uncircumcision) hear the gospel of faith and believe it to be justified even as the Hebrew nation (the circumcision) have to hear the preaching of faith to be justified.
Romans 3:29-30
[29]Is he the Alahayim of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:
[30]Seeing it is one Alahayim, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
 


Paul taught the Hebrews too, even writing a letter unto them, but his focus was on the Gentiles, while Peter's focus was on the Hebrews even though Peter preached to anyone that the opportunity provided for by evidence of his preaching to the Gentile Cornelius. Paul attests that they all preach to both Jew and Greek, so whether Hebrew following the custom of the Jews or Greeks, or a Gentile following the customs of the Jews or Greeks, the Cross is preached unto them.
1 Corinthians 1:18,22-24
[18]For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of Alahayim.
[22]For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
[23]But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
[24]But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of Alahayim, and the wisdom of Alahayim.

 


Christ came only for the Lost sheep of the House of Israel doctrine.


It has been said that “Christ came only for the lost sheep of the House of Israel” [Matt 15:24] Fret not dear brothers and sisters, only remember the truth of the Gospel. Christ did not only come for the lost Sheep of the House of Israel. Christ himself said in John 10:16 "other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold , and one shepherd." By precept, the other sheep that are not of the fold of the lost sheep of the house of Israel are the heathen, who have been exhorted to look for Yache, their Shepherd, and ours.

2Es 2:33  

I Esdras received a charge of Ahayah upon the mount Oreb, that I should go unto Israel; but when I came unto them, they set me at nought, and despised the commandment of Ahayah. 
2Es 2:34 

 And therefore I say unto you, O ye heathen, that hear and understand, look for your Shepherd, he shall give you everlasting rest; for he is nigh at hand, that shall come in the end of the world. 
2Es 2:35  

Be ready to the reward of the kingdom, for the everlasting light shall shine upon you for evermore. 
2Es 2:36  

Flee the shadow of this world, receive the joyfulness of your glory: I testify my Saviour openly. 

 

So in truth, Christ was sent unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel {Matt 15:24} to confirm the promises to the fathers {Romans 15:8} and they believed him not, but as many as believed he gave power to be sons of Alahayim. [John 1:12] and made them new creatures that they may be the Israel of Alahayim. {Galatians 6:15-16} Yache, after he fulfilled the scripture of dying on the cross for remission of former sins as it behooved him, {Luke 24:46-47} received all authority in heaven and earth and sent his disciples unto all nations [Matt 28:18-20] to fulfill the promise to Abraham that he should be "a father of many nations" {Rom 4:11-12,16-17} and gather the "other sheep" that were not of the fold of Israel unto himself that we, Hebrew and Gentile, may have one Shepherd and be one fold by his breaking down of the middle wall of partition between us. {Eph 2:11-19}

 Rom 15:8  

Now I say that Yache Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of Alahayim, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: 
Rom 15:9  

And that the Gentiles might glorify Alahayim for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name. 
Rom 15:10  

And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. 
Rom 15:11  

And again, Praise Ahayah, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people. 
Rom 15:12  

And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust. 
 

 

Hence it is not according to Yache's words or Ahayah's will for the Apostles to only preach to the Hebrew race because that would cause Yache's command to teach all nations to be null and void and make the promise to Abraham ineffective and take away salvation from the world. So Yache was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Hebrew nation), he had to be a covenant for them, yet he had to fulfill the prophecy of being “a light to Gentiles” too. 
Isaiah 42:6
[6]I Ahayah have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;



• the Hebrew nation is "the people" and the Gentiles are all the gentiles nations. The gospel is not all about Israel dear family, rather it's all about Yache, The salvation of Alahayim. It is him we glory in [php 3:3] and he is and shall be the light of the world as he said and was prophesied to be. [John 8:12] The gentiles have to come receive his light too for him to be the light of the world [Isa 60:3], for Alahayim gave his son because of his love for the world, not just Israel [John 3:16]. He lightens every man, not just the Hebrew race [john 1:4,9], hence we Preach Christ Crucified and have not confidence in the flesh that we're Israel, lest we stumble at the stumbling stone of not seeking our salvation by faith in humility.
Romans 9:27-33
[27]Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea,
a remnant shall be saved: (that remnant is the 144k of Rev 7:1-8)
[28]For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will Ahayah make upon the earth.
[29]And as Esaias said before, Except Ahayah of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.
[30]What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.
[31]But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.
[32]Wherefore?
Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;
[33]As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Rom 3:30  

Seeing it is one Alahayim, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. 
Rom 3:31  

Do we then make void the law through faith? Alahayim forbid: yea, we establish the law. 
Gal 3:27  

For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 
Gal 3:28  

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Yache. 
Gal 3:29  

And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. 


Please refer to the lesson on Yache the covenant to understand how he had to die for Israel and lighten the gentiles.

Also refer to the promises given to Abraham to understand that the preaching of repentance for the remission of former sins had to go unto the gentiles too.
