The Land of God is part of the “worm countries” and there is a special set of regulation written as requirements, same for any people who come to settle on the land or is cut of. According Leviticus 25:23-24 the Assembly of Israel (the children of Israel) are not natives of the Land but they are settlers, the Land belong to God, and according Exodus 12:48 there is same law for a stranger who sojourns as for a native of the land. So there is same law for all who settle to become a natural branch, and same law for a stranger who sojourns as for a native branch.According Leviticus 25:23-24 the Assembly of Israel (the children of Israel) are not natives of the Land but they are settlers, the Land belong to God, and according Exodus 12:48 there is same law for a stranger who sojourns as for a native of the land. So there is same law for all who settle to become a natural branch, and same law for a stranger who sojourns as for a native branch. Circumcision: In The Warm Countries

7 Genesis 17:9-14;17:24-27;21:4-5 --Genesis 17:9-14;17:24-27;21:4-5 -- God said to Abraham, "As for you, you are to keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you, generation after generation. Here is my covenant, which you are to keep, between me and you, along with your descendants after you: every male among you is to be circumcised. You are to be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin; this will be the sign of the covenant between me and you. Generation after generation, every male among you who is eight days old is to be circumcised, including slaves born within your household and those bought from a foreigner not descended from you. The slave born in your house and the person bought with your money must be circumcised; thus my covenant will be in your flesh as an everlasting covenant. Any uncircumcised male who will not let himself be circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin -that person will be cut off from his people, because he has broken my covenant." -- Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, and Ishmael his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. Abraham and Ishmael his son were circumcised on the same day; and all the men in his household, both slaves born in his house and those bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him.Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, and Ishmael his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. Abraham and Ishmael his son were circumcised on the same day; and all the men in his household, both slaves born in his house and those bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him. Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had ordered him to do. Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac [laughter] was born to him. Circumcision: Abrahamic

8 According the words of our GOD when the glad is lubricated the semination is considered uncleanness, according to Leviticus 15:1-17, 15:1-5a: “And Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying:According the words of our GOD when the glad is lubricated the semination is considered uncleanness, according to Leviticus 15:1-17, 15:1-5a: “And Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying: “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, ‘When any man has a discharge from his flesh, his discharge is unclean. And this shall be [the law concerning] his uncleanness in his discharge: whether his body runs with his discharge or has stopped [running], it is uncleanness in him. ‘Any bed becomes unclean on which he who has the discharge lies, and any object on which he sits becomes unclean. And anyone who touches his bed [...] has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. [...] Circumcision & Uncleanness : Biblically

9 Leviticus 12:1-8:Leviticus 12:1-8: And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘When a woman has conceived, and has given birth to a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days, as in the days of her monthly separation she is unclean. ‘And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin is circumcised. ‘And she remains in the blood of her cleansing thirty-three days. She does not touch whatever is set-apart, and she does not come into the set-apart place until the days of her cleansing are completed. ‘But if she gives birth to a female child, then she shall be unclean for two weeks, as in her monthly separation, and she remains in the blood of her cleansing for sixty-six days. ‘And when the days of her cleansing are completed, for a son or for a daughter, she brings to the priest a lamb a year old, as a burnt offering, and a young pigeon or a turtledove as a sin offering, to the door of the Tent of Meeting. ‘And he shall bring it before Yahweh, and make atonement for her, and she shall be cleansed from the flow of her blood. This are the requirements for her who has given birth to a male or a female. ‘And if she is not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons, one as a burnt offering and the other as a sin offering. And the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean. ”Luke 2:22 ‘And if she is not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons, one as a burnt offering and the other as a sin offering. And the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean. ” (Luke 2:22); Circumcision in Scriptures

10 Joshua 5:2-10; --Joshua 5:2-10; -- At that time Yahweh said to Joshua: "Make flint knives and circumcise the Israelites again." So Joshua made flint knives and circumcised the Israelites at Gibeath Haaraloth. Now this is why he did so: All those who came out of Egypt--all the men of military age--died in the desert on the way after leaving Egypt. All the people that came out had been circumcised, but all the people born in the desert during the journey from Egypt had not. The Israelites had moved about in the desert forty years until all the men who were of military age when they left Egypt had died, since they had not obeyed Yahweh. For Yahweh had sworn to them that they would not see the land that he had solemnly promised their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey. So he raised up their sons in their place, and these were the ones Joshua circumcised. They were still uncircumcised because they had not been circumcised on the way. And after the whole nation had been circumcised, they remained where they were in camp until they were healed. Then Yahweh said to Joshua, "Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you." This is why the place has been called Gilgal [rolling] ever since. On the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, while camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, the Israelites celebrated the Passover. Circumcision in Scriptures

11 There are two Lamb sacrifices in homes when are the Passover feasts. The first Lamb is sacrificed in the day of preparation for Passover when in the eve is The Feast of First-Born. – Exodus 12:18; and 13:1-13;The first Lamb is sacrificed in the day of preparation for Passover when in the eve is The Feast of First-Born. – Exodus 12:18; and 13:1-13; Note that in verse 5 is written that this is required in the Land which He promised and swore to our fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, were we shall keep this service (at the beginning of summer in the biblical month Nissan or Aviv, ‘first’ in Hebrew that starts in the 14 day when is full moon). Note that in verse 5 is written that this is required in the Land which He promised and swore to our fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, were we shall keep this service (at the beginning of summer in the biblical month Nissan or Aviv, ‘first’ in Hebrew that starts in the 14 day when is full moon). The last Lamb is sacrificed Sunday when in the morrow after Saturday is –The last Lamb is sacrificed Sunday when in the morrow after Saturday is – The Feast of First-Fruit. – Leviticus 23:9-15; Note that in verse 10 is written “into the land which I give you” and in verse 14 is written that this is “a law forever” throughout our generations in all our dwellings. Lambs are still sacrificed in Christian-Orthodox counties... We can see that the 1st Lamb sacrifice started in Egypt and the last in Canaan. Circumcision: The requirements for Passover

12 Leviticus 23:9-15, And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,Leviticus 23:9-15, And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and you shall say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its Harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the First-Fruits of your Harvest to the priest.‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its Harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the First-Fruits of your Harvest to the priest. ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before Yahweh, for your acceptance.‘And he shall wave the sheaf before Yahweh, for your acceptance. On the morrow after the Saturday the priest waves it. ‘And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male Lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to Yahweh, and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to Yahweh, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering: one-fourth of a hin of wine.‘And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male Lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to Yahweh, and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to Yahweh, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering: one-fourth of a hin of wine. ‘And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your GOD – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.‘And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your GOD – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. ‘And from the morrow after the Saturday, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths (rest days)...”‘And from the morrow after the Saturday, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths (rest days)...” Circumcision: Who can eat the Passover ?

13 According Leviticus 25:23-24 the children of Jacob that form the Assembly of Israel are not natives of the Land but they are settlers:According Leviticus 25:23-24 the children of Jacob that form the Assembly of Israel are not natives of the Land but they are settlers: ‘And the land is not to be sold beyond reclaim, for the land is Mine, for you are sojourners and settlers with Me. Therefore, when you sell your property, you must include the right of redemption. Circumcision: Who can eat the Passover ? According Exodus 12:48:According Exodus 12:48: “And when a stranger sojourns with you and shall perform the Passover to Yahweh, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and perform it, and he shall be as a native of the land. But let no uncircumcised eat of it.”

14 Numbers 9:9-10: And The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘When any male of you or your generations is unclean for a being, or is far away on a journey, he shall still perform the Passover of the LORD’” Numbers 9:14: ‘And when a stranger sojourns among you, then he shall perform the Passover of LORD. He shall do so according to The Law of the Passover and according to its right-ruling.Numbers 9:14: ‘And when a stranger sojourns among you, then he shall perform the Passover of LORD. He shall do so according to The Law of the Passover and according to its right-ruling. You have one law, both for the stranger and the native of the land.” So there is only one law for the stranger as for the native of the land when attends to keep the requirements of the Land of God. We have one example when the inhabitants are cut of literary, according 2 Kings chapter 17, when at the Babylonian Exile the North tribes that come to live in Shomeron and form the Samaritan people, are eaten by lions until priests are send to teach them what the God of the land requirements are.We have one example when the inhabitants are cut of literary, according 2 Kings chapter 17, when at the Babylonian Exile the North tribes that come to live in Shomeron and form the Samaritan people, are eaten by lions until priests are send to teach them what the God of the land requirements are. Circumcision: Who can eat the Passover ?

15 Same Law of Passover applies, in any place, to Lord’s Supper so, someone who is unclean by reason of a dead body, in Messiah, is forgiven so, that can eat the Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:20).Same Law of Passover applies, in any place, to Lord’s Supper so, someone who is unclean by reason of a dead body, in Messiah, is forgiven so, that can eat the Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:20). In Messiah circumcision is not a requirement anymore for a stranger who joins the assembly, he should be only circumcised by the heart by receiving the circumcised (1 Corinthians 7:18-19; Romans 2:25-29; Colossians 3:11). This means also not to judge those who circumcise their infants so that they can grow as a natural branch or native/grafted.In Messiah circumcision is not a requirement anymore for a stranger who joins the assembly, he should be only circumcised by the heart by receiving the circumcised (1 Corinthians 7:18-19; Romans 2:25-29; Colossians 3:11). This means also not to judge those who circumcise their infants so that they can grow as a natural branch or native/grafted. But, it is required, as addition, not to eat strangled animals, for one who enters in the Tent of Lord in our case in the Lord’s Assembly.But, it is required, as addition, not to eat strangled animals, for one who enters in the Tent of Lord in our case in the Lord’s Assembly. In Philippians chapter 3, the teacher Saul, known to us as Paul the apostle of nations, says he is more qualified according law and might have trust in the flesh, but he trust in the righteousness that is through belief in Messiah so that he might attain to the resurrection from the dead, for he says, our City (or employment, citizenship) is in Heaven.In Philippians chapter 3, the teacher Saul, known to us as Paul the apostle of nations, says he is more qualified according law and might have trust in the flesh, but he trust in the righteousness that is through belief in Messiah so that he might attain to the resurrection from the dead, for he says, our City (or employment, citizenship) is in Heaven. Circumcision: Who can eat the Passover ?

16 As is related in the second book of dr. Luke named “Acts of Apostles”, in chapter 21, that Paul was accused that he teaches the Hebrews from diasporas not to keep the law, and this was not true: "You see, brother, how many thousands there are among the Judeans of those who have believed, and they are all zealous for the Torah; "and they have been told by word of mouth about you, that you are teaching all the Judeans (of Judah) who are among the nations to apostatize from Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the ethic. "What then is it? They will certainly hear that you have come. "This, therefore, do what we tell you: There are four men who have a vow on themselves; "take them alongside and purify yourself together with them, and pay their expenses so that they may shave their heads; and all will know that there is nothing to the things which they have been instructed concerning you, but that you yourself also walk orderly, keeping the Torah. "Now concerning those of the nations who have believed, we wrote, judging that they should abstain from what was offered to idols, and from blood, and from meats strangled, and from fornication." – Acts 21:20 b -25; (see 15:13-21) "Now concerning those of the nations who have believed, we wrote, judging that they should abstain from what was offered to idols, and from blood, and from meats strangled, and from fornication." – Acts 21:20 b -25; (see 15:13-21 ) Circumcision: Who can eat the Passover ?

17 Another Passover feast is the Festival of Unleavened Bread (Matza) as is commanded in Exodus 12:17-20:Another Passover feast is the Festival of Unleavened Bread (Matza) as is commanded in Exodus 12:17-20: “...‘And you shall guard the Festival of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I brought your divisions out of the land of Egypt (Mitzrayim). And you shall guard this day throughout your generations, an everlasting law. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, you shall eat unleavened bread until the twenty-first day of the month in the evening. For seven days no leaven is to be found in your houses, for if anyone eats what is leavened, that same being shall be cut off from the Assembly of Israel, whether sojourner or native of the land. Do not eat that which is leavened – in all your dwellings you are to eat unleavened bread.” Circumcision: Who can eat the Passover ? In 1Corintheans 5:6-8 Paul writes: “Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the entire lump? Therefore cleanse out the old leaven, so that you are a new lump, as you are unleavened.In 1Corintheans 5:6-8 Paul writes: “Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the entire lump? Therefore cleanse out the old leaven, so that you are a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Messiah our Passover was offered for us. So then let us observe the festival, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of evil and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”

18 1. Believe that Messiah our Passover (Lamb) was offered for us, so through belief in Messiah, those of the nations who have believed can observe the festival, not with old leaven, with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth, and those from the Assembly of Israel for seven days no leaven is to be found in your houses. As is written in Mark 16:15, Messiah spoke about the signs of them that believe: “And He said to them: ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the Good News to every creature. He who has believed and has been immersed, shall be saved, but he who has not believed shall be condemned...” “Therefore let all the House of Israel know for certain that God has made this Jesus (Yeshua), whom you impaled, both Master and Messiah.” And having heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Kepha and the rest of the emissaries, “Men, brothers, what shall we do?” And Kepha said to them: “Repent, and let each one of you be immersed, in the Name of Jesus (Yeshua) Messiah, for the forgiveness of sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit. For this promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are far off, as many as Yahweh our God shall call.” – Acts 2:36-39;

19 2. Circumcised by the heart, by receiving (not rejecting) the circumcised, and those from the Assembly of Israel by receiving the uncircumcised by flesh, as the prophet writes, in Jeremiah 9:25-26, how God declares: “See, the days are coming,” declares Yahweh, “when I shall punish all circumcised with the uncircumcised – “Egypt (Mitsrayim), and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab ̱, and all those trimmed on the edges, who dwell in the wilderness. For all the gentiles are uncircumcised, and all the House of Israel are uncircumcised in heart!”

20 3. From the commitments of Assembly of Israel are required to all believers to guard from the things of spirits (Leviticus 26:1), from the fortification (Leviticus 19:29,21:9; Matthew 19:9), not to eat animal blood and stifle (Leviticus 17:14-16) and to forbid the bloodshed (Genesis 9:3-6; Deuteronomy 21:1-9, 1 Samuel 25:26). “Wherefore I consider that we do not trouble them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions (or offerings) of idols,abstain from pollutions (or offerings) of idols, and from fornication,and from fornication, and from things strangled,and from things strangled, and from blood”.and from blood”. For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath (rest) day.” – Acts 15:13-21; 21:21-25;For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath (rest) day.” – Acts 15:13-21; 21:21-25;

21 1.Believe that Messiah the Passover Lamb was offered; by immersion, in the Name of Messiah that certify the believe. This makes any other ordinary lamb symbolic, as the unleavened bread that is the spiritual symbol of sincerity and truth and a special diet that prepares the believer for the summer and new harvest season. 2. Circumcision by the heart; “And you shall circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and harden your neck no more. For Yahweh your God is GOD of mighty ones and Master of masters, the great GOD, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe”.Deuteronomy 10:16-17; 2. Circumcision by the heart; “And you shall circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and harden your neck no more. For Yahweh your God is GOD of mighty ones and Master of masters, the great GOD, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe”. - Deuteronomy 10:16-17; 3. The commitments from the Apostolic Council of Jerusalem. Conclusion: Who can eat the Passover ?

22 As is related in “Acts of Apostles”, Paul was accused that he teaches the Hebrews from diasporas not to keep the law, and this was not true. After he waited for all 4 Nazarenes to finish they cleansing days, captured was accused by Tertullus to be a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes (Acts 24:5,14), also that he also tried to profane the Set-apart Place introducing one non circumcised Ephesian (Acts 24:6,12).As is related in “Acts of Apostles”, Paul was accused that he teaches the Hebrews from diasporas not to keep the law, and this was not true. After he waited for all 4 Nazarenes to finish they cleansing days, captured was accused by Tertullus to be a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes (Acts 24:5,14), also that he also tried to profane the Set-apart Place introducing one non circumcised Ephesian (Acts 24:6,12). Verse 18 shown that the apostle was cleansed: “... at which time certain (Jews) Yehud ̱ im from Asia found me cleansed in the Set-apart Place, neither with a crowd nor with disturbance”.Verse 18 shown that the apostle was cleansed: “... at which time certain (Jews) Yehud ̱ im from Asia found me cleansed in the Set-apart Place, neither with a crowd nor with disturbance”. In Galatians 2:7-8 Paul shows he is entrusted to evangelize the uncircumcised, outside the Land of God, were there was no law given until the Jerusalem Council:In Galatians 2:7-8 Paul shows he is entrusted to evangelize the uncircumcised, outside the Land of God, were there was no law given until the Jerusalem Council: “But on the contrary, when they saw that the Good News to the uncircumcised had been entrusted to me, even as Peter to the circumcised – for He who worked in Peter to make him an apostle for the circumcised also worked in me for the uncircumcised.” Pauline Epistles -- Note that:

23 Ephesians 2:11-20:Ephesians 2:11-20: Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without the Messiah, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in the Messiah Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of the Messiah. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto Yahweh in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of Yahweh; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus the Messiah himself being the chief corner stone; Pauline Epistles

24 Romans 2:23-29:Romans 2:23-29: You who make your boast in the Torah, through the transgression of the Torah do you disrespect GOD? For “The Name of GOD is blasphemed among the gentiles because of you,” as it has been written. For circumcision indeed profits if you practice the Torah, but if you are a transgressor of the Torah, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. So, if an uncircumcised one watches over the righteousnesses of the Torah, shall not his uncircumcision be reckoned as circumcision? And the uncircumcised by nature, who perfects the Torah, shall judge you who notwithstanding letter and circumcision are a transgressor of the Torah! For he is not a Yehud ̱ ite (Judean or Yeh’s Worshiper) who is so outwardly, neither is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But a Yehud ̱ ite is he who is so inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart,1 in Spirit, not literally, whose praise is not from men but from Elohim. Footnote: 11 Cor. 7:19, Ex. 19:5, Dt. 10:12-16, Dt. 30:6-8, Rev. 2:9; 3:9. Rom 3, What value is there in circumcision? First of all they have been entrusted with the very words of God. Pauline Epistles

25 "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart; you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up" -- Deuteronomy 6:5-7."You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart; you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up" -- Deuteronomy 6:5-7. "You shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul" -- Deuteronomy 11:18. (see Deuteronomy 10:2) "You shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul" -- Deuteronomy 11:18. (see Deuteronomy 10:2) "For this commandment which I command you today, it is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, 'Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?' Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, 'Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?' But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it" -- Deuteronomy 30:11-14. (see Psalm 37:30,31; 119:11)."For this commandment which I command you today, it is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, 'Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?'

But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it" -- Deuteronomy 30:11-14. (see Psalm 37:30,31; 119:11). Circumcision by Heart

26 2Corintheans 3:1-4:2Corintheans 3:1-4: “Are we to begin to recommend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some, letters of recommendation to you, or from you? You are our letter, having been written in our hearts, known and read by all men, making it obvious that you are a letter of Messiah, served by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living GOD, not on tablets of stone but on fleshly tablets of the heart. (Deuteronomy 10:2; 11:18) And such trust we have toward GOD, through the Messiah. Circumcision by Heart

27 Galatians 2:7-8:Galatians 2:7-8: “But on the contrary, when they saw that the Good News to the uncircumcised had been entrusted to me, even as Peter (Kĕpha) to the circumcised – for He who worked in Peter (Kĕpha) to make him an apostle for the circumcised also worked in me for the.” “But on the contrary, when they saw that the Good News to the uncircumcised had been entrusted to me, even as Peter (Kĕpha) to the circumcised – for He who worked in Peter (Kĕpha) to make him an apostle for the circumcised also worked in me for the uncircumcised.” Circumcision: is not mutilation! Apostle of circumcised ≠ Apostle of mutilated

Jesus said: " Don’t think that I have come to abolish the (Law) Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete. Yes indeed! I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or a stroke will pass from the Torah—not until everything that must happen has happened. So whoever disobeys the least of these (mitzvoth) requirements and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them and so teaches will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.“ - Matthew 5:17-19;Jesus said: " Don’t think that I have come to abolish the (Law) Torah or the Prophets.

No longer a distinction between Hebrews and Gentiles (Eph 2:11-20) but we are all one in Christ (Gal 3:28). For through him we (strangers to Israel or natives, and natural breach) both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but fellow- citizens with the saints.No longer a distinction between Hebrews and Gentiles (Eph 2:11-20) but we are all one in Christ (Gal 3:28).

In Mark 9:36-44: “And whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it is better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea. It is written in Apocalypse 2:14 for the angel of the assembly from Pergamos: “But I hold a few matters against you, because you have there those who adhere to the teaching of Bilam, who taught Balach to put a stumbling-block before the children of Israel, to eat food offered to idols, and to commit whoring.” -- Numbers 24:14; It is written in Apocalypse 18:21(NASV) how is judged the big city of earth nations: “Then a strong angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will not be found any longer. The message of Babylonian Exodus first written by the prophet Jeremiah then by the apostle in 2Co 6:14-18 is shouted this time by an angel from heaven at the fulfilling of Apocalypse chapter 18: “Then I heard another voice from heaven say: "Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes”.
