  1. Shabbat Shalom.
    I am so glad I found your site! The Father has been leading me to the knowledge that there is a entire half of the gospel that is being misrepresented. Reading Scripture has convicted me that G-d’s law has NOT been abolished! Trying to show others that the “grace only” doctrine is not only deceptive, but dangerous is frustrating. It is my prayer that your material will be of help. Thank you sir. May Abba bless you.

  2. I just found your site and was wondering if all the letters of Paul were written to the Jewish believers from the House of Israel and not Gentiles as we have thought? Thank You

    1. The one thing that is never taught in mainstream theology is that there isn’t a ‘congregation or assembly’ somewhere called ‘the gentiles’. “Gentile” is an English transliteration of the Latin word ‘gentilis’ which means ‘belonging to the same people/nation’, from the Latin word ‘gens’ which means ‘tribe or clan’. The English word ‘Gentile’ is found nowhere in the Greek; the Greek word in every single New Testament usage is always “Ethnos”; Strong’s G1484, ἔθνος/ethnos. Strong’s Definition is: “a race, a nation, the nations.” The English word ‘gentiles’ should not be used in the Word of God, the only word that should be translated from ‘ethnos’ is ‘nations’.

      According to the Scriptures there are only two groups of people on earth: the chosen elect of God and everybody else; the children of Israel are His chosen people, and the nations, are everyone else. The chosen elect of God are those in covenant with Him, these are obedient and faithful, the citizens of the common-wealth of Israel. The rest are all of the other nations on earth.

      The apostle Paul was sent to those ‘nations’ outside of Israel to deliver the message-of-Messiah to the lost ten tribes that were divorced and exiled for their disobedience. These exiles were most certainly considered “ethnos/of the nations” by those living in Israel, as they were divorced from the Almighty and kicked out of the promised land. Paul was sent to give the message of salvation/deliverance from the bondage of sin that can lead to repentance, then forgiveness, and finally reconciliation with the Almighty.
      What does the text say?

      Acts 9:15 And the Lord said unto him, `Be going on, because a choice vessel to Me is this one , to bear My name before nations and kings–the sons also of Israel;

      Romans 9:22-29 What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory— even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles? As indeed he says in Hosea,
      “Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people,’
      and her who was not beloved I will call ‘beloved.’”
      “And in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’
      there they will be called sons of the living God.’”
      And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will be saved, for the Lord will carry out his sentence upon the earth fully and without delay.” And as Isaiah predicted,
      “If the Lord of hosts had not left us offspring,
      we would have been like Sodom
      and become like Gomorrah.”

      Since this ‘good news of Romans 9 above’ had to go out to the “nations” where the exiles were scattered like grain through a sieve (Amos 9:9), it has had the Divinely-Inspired additional benefit that, those who are not of the lost tribes would hear it also and then have the choice to covenant with the Creator! Yeshua said that this good news would not have gone to all the towns of Israel before He comes back (Matthew 10:23), so His intent was for the Message to forth to “all the towns where Israelites lived”. Since, at the time He spoke this, the state of Judea/Israel was pretty small and verses 16 through 23 of Matthew chapter 10 describe the disciples going out “among the nations”, it’s not difficult to surmise that this was their calling; to reach the exiled ten tribes “among the nations”.

      Again, the beauty of the Father’s plan is that anyone can “graft into” the Olive Tree (Israel), if they agree to the terms of the covenant; faithfully trust in the work of the Messiah, dying to self (burying the old man), ceasing from our sin (defined by God) and turn back to obeying God, serving Him in righteousness (again, defined by Him).

      All that being said, as a ‘sent-one’ (apostle), Paul wrote personal letters of admonition, encouragement or advice to specific congregations or to his disciples “among-the-Nations”. All of his teachings and doctrines were based on his unequaled knowledge of “the Scriptures” (the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings). His teachings never contradicted “the Scriptures”, ALL of his doctrines had to agree with and harmonize with ALL of “the Scriptures”.
      I recommend reading ‘Examining the Scriptures’ and ‘Are You Grafted Into Israel? Part 4: No Longer Gentile’ and please share.

      Thank you for your comment, and May Yah bless your time in His Word.

      1. Mr. Wheeler, Thank you for your response. I did read the articles you recommended. I can see how God has been faithful to His covenant with is Bride Israel and even in her unfaithfulness,He has pursued her to win her back to Himself. This is truly a love story. I wonder if the way the Gospel has been preached is wrong? It seems as if It’s not so much trying to escape the fires of Hell, as it is an invitation to the Nations to the Great Wedding Feast, by entering into a covenant of marriage with Israel’s Bride-Groom through faith in Him as Israel’s Messiah and Lord. If you have any insight into this I would appreciate your thoughts.
        Thank You, Steve

      2. Steve,

        Your summation certainly is true; the ‘gospel’ has been taught only in partial truths, and in some cases no truth at all, for centuries. Besides all of the false man-made dogmas (Dispensationalism, Replacement Theology, Once-Saved, Always-Saved, Pre-tribulation Rapture, Hyper-Grace, Ecumenicalism, Bilateral-Ecclesiology) that have been added to the core belief system of mainstream Christian theology, critical doctrines and precepts have been thrown in the garbage.

        The main problem however, with the “system” of mainstream Christian theology is the false premise that the good news (gospel) is solely ‘belief in Jesus’; that only “academic belief” in His life, death and resurrection is needed to ‘enter the Kingdom of God’.

        Don’t misunderstand me, the fact that Jesus died, rose and is sitting at the right hand of the Father is definitely ‘Good News’! But that’s only the ‘Headline’, the greater context of the Creator’s ‘Gospel’ design has been completely ignored, or just tossed in the bin as no longer valid.

        Belief alone is useless and a deception of Satan; James 2:19 “even the demons believe”, and where has that gotten them? Thinking you’re “saved” by professing “I believe in Jesus” while continuing to walk in the sins that required His death is no ‘gospel’ at all; it’s pure delusion.

        Jesus came to preach the ‘good news’, “REPENT, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand… proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom” | Matthew 4:17, 23

        Almost everyone skips over the word ‘Repent’, they think they can just slide right by on ‘greasy grace’ straight to the Kingdom. “Repent” in the Hebrew is always H7725 שׁוּב/shuv, which is a “verb” and means ‘to turn back, return’. What was the will of God before Jesus arrived on the scene? It was His Instructions, Commandments, and Right Rulings. Jesus is telling them (and us) to return to the Father’s Instructions and Ways, and not to do what is right in our own eyes. Jesus came to show us the Father, His doctrines, His will ~ So Jesus answered them, “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. If anyone’s will is to do God’s will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority.” | John 7:16-17

        The most critical error in mainstream Christian theology is that they teach, ‘because you claim belief, you are guaranteed eternal life’; that is pure delusion.

        John 5:28-29 28Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice 29and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.

        Here is Paul quoting the Master, ‘post-resurrection’ ~

        Romans 2:6-9 6He will render to each one according to his works: 7to those who by patience in good work seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; 8but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, 9there will be wrath and fury.

        Again, Steve your comment is correct, the main thrust of the studies I recommended that you read do reveal that truth about Paul’s mission to the Nations; but the critical ‘gospel error’ in today’s mainstream theological doctrine is that they teach, “Jesus did it all for me, so I’m saved and good to go, there’s nothing I need to do for my part”… this is Pure Delusion!

        STRIVE for peace with everyone, “AND for the holiness” without which NO ONE will see the Lord. | Hebrews 12:14

        Put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness | Ephesians 4:24

        you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness | Romans 6:16

        The Bride that you mentioned in your comment ‘will make herself ready’, and because of it she is ‘clothed in fine linen, bright and pure’, and that “fine linen” is the ‘righteous deeds of the saints’… | Revelation 19:7-8

        If you haven’t already, I highly recommend that you read ‘Justification vs. Righteousness’ to understand how Paul defines the difference between the two.

        The ‘mainstream gospel error’ and the Romans chapter 2 verses above is actually the topic of the study I am currently working on, and should be ready to post soon; the Scriptural difference between salvation and eternal life.

        Thanks for your comment, feel free to contact me any time.

        May God bless your time in His Word.

  3. Mr. Wheeler,Thank you for your response. I look forward to reading your next post on the “mainstream gospel error.” Have you written much about the Bride of Messiah? From a Hebrew perspective,what is your understanding of 2 Cor. 11:2-3, about being espoused or betrothed to Yeshua now, but may not be presented to Him as a pure virgin when He returns? Will the Bride of Messiah (Israel) be made up of individual virgin brides who have remained faithful to Him during their betrothal? Also, does this mean that some believers who are betrothed to Yeshua will not be part of the Bride of Messiah because of their unfaithfulness and lose their salvation?
    Thank you, Steve

    1. Steve,

      I would recommend reading, ‘Why the Messiah Had to Die… and Rise Again!’, for an in-depth study on Yeshua as the Bridegroom/Husband of Israel.

      As far as your inquiry regarding 2 Corinthians 11:2, I read it as Paul warning his congregation in Corinth that he’s concerned that they might be led astray, and thereby corrupt themselves by some false doctrine or false prophet. Paul is telling them that his desire is for them (and by extension, us) is to maintain their ‘purity’. The word ‘pure’ in the Greek is ‘hagnos’, a cognate of ‘hagios’, which is almost exclusively translated as “Holy/Set-Apart”.

      ‘Hagnos’ in 2 Corinthians 11:2 has the definition of – “Sacred”, or set-apart; “Reverent”, fearful of and esteeming God; “Pure”, free from defilement.

      Paul is telling them (and us) to stay diligent, to always be mindful of the ‘Sacredness’, ‘Reverence’, and ‘Purity’ that we are to demonstrate now that we’re in Christ (v.3). The context of chapters 10-13 has Paul expressing his concern and fear that they are straying back to their old ways of sin and debauchery. This is not how the ‘betrothed’ of Messiah should behave.

      2 Corinthians 12:20-21 For I fear that perhaps when I come I may find you not as I wish, and that you may find me not as you wish—that perhaps there may be quarreling, jealousy, anger, hostility, slander, gossip, conceit, and disorder. I fear that when I come again my God may humble me before you, and I may have to mourn over many of those who sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual immorality, and sensuality that they have practiced.

      He’s advising them (and us) to ‘examine ourselves in the faith’ lest we should fail the test ~

      2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!

      Read 10:1 through 13:10 for the entire context of the dialogue.

      The Bride of Messiah/יהוה is the body-of-saints as a whole assembly. That is the type of relationship He is going to have with His ‘elect’ once they have ‘made their selves ready’ ~

      Revelation 19:7-8 the marriage of the Lamb has come, and ‘his Bride has made herself ready’; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and “pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

      As you can see, the text states ‘the bride’s righteous deeds’ is her “Pure” fine linen that she is clothed in for the wedding feast.

      As I see it, the Assembly/Bride of Messiah isn’t ready yet. We need to ‘examine ourselves and test’ whether we are walking out faith/belief in truth and righteousness, lest we fail to meet the test. I will be expounding on this in greater detail in the next study that I’m posting soon.

      May Yah bless you,

      Rich Wheeler
