Fellow Heirs

     What is a Gentile ??  I always heard within religion that a Gentile is a non-Jew.  Basically anyone who is not a Jew is a Gentile according to religious teachings.  Not a good enough teaching for me.

     I had this question in my mind for years.  Only God Almighty actually opened my eyes as to the real truth on a few specifics.

     Lets take a look at the following verse written in the book of Ephesians, Chapter 3 - verses 3 through 6 which also stuck in my head as a question for some time.

     " How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ); 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; that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel."

     A mystery is revealed.  So what is the mystery ??  From the four gospels most of us know what has been said about The Messiah's ministry and his purpose so that should solve it and end of story right ?  Wrong.  Obviously something else is amiss according to what is written within the above verse in the book of Ephesians.

     So where do we look concerning this verse ??  To the Old Testament concerning Gentiles.  Obviously to crack this mystery in modern day we have to do a word study on Gentiles.  Now I'm not going into great detail here concerning the usage of the word but what God has put upon me to find the answer to my question is quite extraordinary and down right amazing.

     The word Gentile only appears once in the book of Genesis; chapter 10 verse 5.  The word "nations" should be in place of the word Gentiles within this verse.  The word "nations" also appears at the end of the verse and is of the same Hebrew word "gowy".  How did nations and Gentiles, two different words coming from the same word "gowy" came about I couldn't tell you other than someone goofed or intended it on purpose.

     The next place that the word Gentile appears is in the book of Judges.  It appears three times in Chapter 4 verses 2, 13 and 16 respectively.  Now we are onto something.  For it is here that one will find the clue in relation to the mystery written in the book of Ephesians.

     So what is the clue ??  Let me give you the verses first.

     4:2     "And Yahweh sold them into the hand of Jabin, king of Canaan, that reigned in Hazor; the captain of whose host [was] Sisera, which dwelt in Harosheth of the Gentiles."

     4:13 "And Sisera gathered together all his chariots, [even] nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people that [were] with him, from Harosheth of the Gentiles unto the river of Kishon."

     4:16 "But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Harosheth of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisera fell upon the edge of the sword; [and] there was not a man left."

     Now we have all three verses and the clue to go on is Harosheth of the Gentiles.  Big deal you say ??   It is a big deal and hear is why.  Harosheth according to the outline of biblical usage means "woodland" and is a city in the north of the land of Canaan on the west coast of the lake Merom and according to Gesenius' Lexicon it is of a town in the North of Palestine !!

     Do you realize the implications and what wonderful news this is ?!  The Palestinians (former Canaanites) will be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of the promise with the Jews !!

     This is about the people of the land as stated within the Old Testament up to the present day.  Religious institutions and organizations will not be heirs of the promise.

     The Islamic Dome of the Rock and the Islamic Religion (false prophet) will be destroyed right along with The Harlot (Roman Catholic Church and her daughters) as so stated within the Book of Revelation in order to make way for the Kingdom of the Messiah and a Rebuilt Temple.
