this study put together by R. J. Coover - 07/22/02 to 07/24/02
(Note: In order to fully grasp the truth of this study, you ought to have your Scriptures here with you.)
Read Acts 17:26-28. "We are also His offspring." Read John 2:9-11. Hence, we are to love one another. Read Genesis 1:26-27. We were created in Yahweh's Image; (Romans 8:29) and though man has strayed far from that Image, we may be re-made and re-formed into It. This means EVERYONE who is sincere, from the lowliest Indian girl to the noblest Roman. We are all one. See Galatians 3:27-28. Yahweh Judges the heart (1 Samuel 16:7), withOUT partiality. (Acts 10:34-35) Read James 2:1,8-9.
Read Joshua 2:1-15; 6:22-25. Rahab, a Canannite was saved alive.
Read Numbers 15:14-16,29; 19:10. There is ONE LAW for sincere Israelis and sincere "strangers". Read Exodus 12:48-49. The "strangers" could even PARTAKE OF THE PASSOVER.
Read Numbers 12:1-11 and the beautiful account of Ruth. Israelis married Moabitesses and Ethiopians. Ruth, a Moabitess, was an ancestor of our Yahshua. When Yahweh told the Israelis not to marry the heathen, He obviously did not mean that they could not marry people of other nationalities. They were not to marry WICKED PEOPLE (or, unbelievers;. people of different religions).
Read Acts 2:5-11,41-42. Many people of many nations received Messiah into their hearts.
Read Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 8:25. The disciples are commanded to preach to all nations, and they do so. The Samaritans are preached to.
Read Acts 8:26-39. An Ethiopian eunuch finds Messiah as his Saviour.
Read Luke 10:25-27. A Samaritan does good. Yahshua uses a Samaritan as an example for us.
Read John 4:1-30,39-42. Yahshua took the time to preach to the Samaritans. They were looking for a Saviour, and believed on Him.
Read Acts 10:1-11:18. Gentiles are ONE with the Jews. How can this be argued. It cannot be, except by those who are withstanding Yahweh. (verse 17)
Read Romans 11. Gentiles CAN be graffed into the Israeli tree! Praise Yahweh's Holy Name! Read 1 Peter 2:9-10.
"PRAISE YAHWEH, ALL YE NATIONS: PRAISE HIM, ALL YE PEOPLE. FOR HIS MERCIFUL KINDNESS IS GREAT TOWARD US: AND THE TRUTH OF YAHWEH ENDURETH FOREVER. PRAISE YE YAHWEH." Psalm 117
