The church as gentiles?

Do you call yourself a gentile? Well, if you do, you have a serious problem, my friend. Gentiles walk according to the flesh.

Eph 4:
17 So this I say, and witness in the Master, that you should no longer walk as the gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind,
18 having been darkened in their understanding, having been estranged from the life of Elohim, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart,
19 who, having become callous, have given themselves up to indecency, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

No, you see, we ARE deceived if we think we are gentile believers…

Eph 2:
11 Therefore remember that you, once gentiles in the flesh, who are called ‘the uncircumcision’ by what is called ‘the circumcision’ made in the flesh by hands,
12 that at that time you were without Messiah, excluded from the citizenship of Yisra’ĕl and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no expectation and without Elohim in the world.
13 But now in Messiah יהושע you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah.

19 So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the set-apart ones and members of the household of Elohim,

We were once gentiles, but now, we are fellow citizens of the commonwealth of Israel, being brought near by the blood of Messiah.

Now, we are one body of Messiah Yeshua.

Eph 2:
4 one body and one Spirit, as you also were called in one expectation of your calling,
5 one Master, one belief, one immersion,
6 one Elohim and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Ultimately, we are now, one new man:

Eph 2:
14 For He is our peace, who has made both one, and having broken down the partition of the barrier,
15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity – the Torah of the commands in dogma – so as to create in Himself one renewed man from the two, thus making peace,
16 and to completely restore to favour both of them unto Elohim in one body through the stake, having destroyed the enmity by it.
17 And having come, He brought as Good News peace to you who were far off, and peace to those near.

This is talking about the two houses. Israel and Judah.

We are now one (re)new(ed) man, joined together as per Eze 37, into one body of Messiah. Jew and ex-gentile (Isreal).

Wake up to your heritage in Israel, friends!
