If you believe John 3:16 is the good news that saves men’s souls in this current dispensation, namely :
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Then what do you do with John 4:22? Do you conveniently sweep it under the carpet?
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
Matthew 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Were the nations, i.e., pagan Gentiles part of the lost sheep of the house of Israel?
Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
Something that has just begun, that is new cannot be added to, which means this church was already in existence. So was the ONE NEW MAN in existence at this time in Acts 2:41? (Another term for the One New Man is the Body of Christ).
If you can find scripture that confirms that God made a covenant with pagan Gentiles in times past and in this current dispensation, please feel free to message said scripture to me.
The only time Jesus ever heeded a pagan Gentile’s call for help was when they blessed Israel or admitted that they had to go through Israel in order to be blessed in return. Matthew 15 confirms this :
27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.
So does John 4 :
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
And today along comes mainline denominationalism and they try and “patch” their way through the Bible by taking all Israel’s doctrine and promises for themselves, and so it becomes a “hit and miss smorgasbord” which amounts to nothing other than the mystery of iniquity – with millions sitting in churches, calling themselves Christians and yet are effectively on their way to hell.
2 Corinthians 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
Today we do not follow or believe Christ according to His earthly ministry. It’s pre-crucifixion. Today we know and preach Christ according to the revelation of the mystery that was given to the Apostle Paul, i.e., the risen, ascended Christ :
Romans 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
