The Righteous Gentiles and How To Reach Them

The Rigtheous Gentiles of Today and How to Reach Them (The Good Hearted But Out of Covenant)
Yesterday at 11:07pm | Edit Note | Delete
In my life I have known many “Righteous Gentiles”. A righteous Gentile is someone that may not know the Written law, but they have the Law written on their hearts. They may not know or keep the lesser things of the Law, but they practice the heavier things of Law. Many love G-d but fear and distrust and are often disgusted by the people and institutions that claim to represent Him. As it is written “My Name is Dishonored amongst the Gentiles because of you.” Romans 2:22

The keeping of the lesser things of the Law, without the keeping of the heavier things, is what has driven countless millions from the doors of the Churches.

Matthew 23:23
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.

The mass of organizations that calls themselves the “Church” have murdered more Christians than all of the world’s governments in history combined, more than the Nazi’s, the Communists, the Romans, the Muslims, and the Jews, all combined. This is not counting the Jews and Arab Christians murdered by the Crusaders, and the countless Native Americans, Polynesians, and other peoples murdered by Protestant groups. G-d’s Name has truly been dishonored amongst the Gentiles, for all many have known of G-d is that He is represented by the organizations who are burning each other alive for not kissing the rear end of this pope or that pastor,and then go enslave everyone else.

Somewhere along the way, the people in the Church placed more value on everyone believing what they thought was right, than with being right with G-d. Hence it was okay to kill people by the millions, just as long as it wasn’t done on any Holidays that pretended to be about Jesus.
Matthew 27:6
But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is blood money.”

Revelation 3:9
Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews (followers of G-d) and are not, but lie—behold,I will make them come and bow down before your feet and they will learn that I have loved you.

Many have been “witnessed to” and rejected the missionary, or person handing out a tract. This rejection of the person with the tract, the organization that printed it, or the building that they were invited too, does not always equal a rejection of G-d. They simply rejected a people, an organization, and a building that has historically been contrary to much of the character and Words of G-d.
They did not reject G-d, but simply rejected religion. Now, if religion becomes a god in itself, then one would find those the rejection of one to be the rejection of the other.

The organization calling itself the “Church” is known by its fruits, anybody with good sense knows things by their fruits. 3-4 decades of being super-nice to people after several centuries of mass murder, inventing most of the torture devices used in the world today, and enslavement, seems like white-wash on a tomb, or worse yet, a death trap. Many individuals who were genuinely the Ekklesia, the Kehelet, the Church of G-d, have produced wonderful fruits on the individual level on a person to person basis, but something strange and sad happens when they quit representing G-d as individuals whose lives have been changed and begin to be salesmen or recruiters for religion.

The difference is made apparent in Isaiah 58:

Isaiah 58
1″Cry aloud; do not hold back;
lift up your voice like a trumpet;
declare to my people their transgression,
to the house of Jacob their sins.
Yet they seek me daily
and delight to know my ways,
as if they were a nation that did righteousness
and did not forsake the judgment of their God;
they ask of me righteous judgments;
they delight to draw near to God.
3’Why have we fasted, and you see it not?
Why have we humbled ourselves, and you take no knowledge of it?’
Behold, in the day of your fast you seek your own pleasure,
and oppress all your workers.
4Behold, you fast only to quarrel and to fight
and to hit with a wicked fist.
Fasting like yours this day
will not make your voice to be heard on high.
5 Is such the fast that I choose,
a day for a person to humble himself?
Is it to bow down his head like a reed,
and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him?
Will you call this a fast,
and a day acceptable to the LORD?

6″Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of wickedness,
to undo the straps of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to break every yoke?
7Is it not to share your bread with the hungry
and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover him,
and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
8Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you;
the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
9Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer;
you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’
If you take away the yoke from your midst,
the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
10 if you pour yourself out for the hungry
and satisfy the desire of the afflicted,
then shall your light rise in the darkness
and your gloom be as the noonday.
11And the LORD will guide you continually
and satisfy your desire in scorched places
and make your bones strong;
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water,
whose waters do not fail.
12 And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt;
you shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
you shall be called the repairer of the breach,
the restorer of streets to dwell in.

13 “If you turn back your foot from the Sabbath,
from doing your pleasure on my holy day,
and call the Sabbath a delight
and the holy day of the LORD honorable;
if you honor it, not going your own ways,
or seekingyour own pleasure,or talking idly;
14then you shall take delight in the LORD,
and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth;
I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father,
for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

It is the value for the weightier things of the Law, the Love of G-d as the Righteous Gentiles understood Him, that have often kept the from the Churches. Many have understood G-d better than the “Churched” in that they understand the meaning of words in ink they have never read, while others who call themselves the “Church” have read the words in ink but did not understand.

Revelation 2:9
“‘I know your tribulation and your poverty but you are rich, and the slander of those who say that they are Jews (followers of G-d)and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Romans 2:25 For circumcision indeed is of value if you obey the law, but if you break the law, your circumcision becomes uncircumcision. 26 So, if a man who is uncircumcised keeps the precepts of the law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision? 27Then he who is physically uncircumcised but keeps the law will condemn you who have the written code and circumcision but break the law. 28For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. 29But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter.His praise is not from man but from God.


It is true that their is only ONE WAY to G-d, and that is Yeshua. Being a righteous Gentile is not the same as being in Covenant. The conundrum is that many who are convinced they are in the Covenant are much closer to Gehenna than the Righteous Gentiles. The Righteous Gentiles realize they need to change, and could find their way to the Covenant if the Church didn’t pretend that the Church itself was G-d.
Many of the “Churched’ have a covenant with religion, a covenant with a building, a pastor, or a denomination, but no Covenant with G-d. Since the Church is confused with G-d, they think they have all they need.

1st Corinthians 1:10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. 11For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers. 12What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ.” 13Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15so that no one may say that you were baptized in my name. 16(I did baptize also the household of Stephanas. Beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized anyone else.) 17For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.

The Righteous Gentiles, reject the Covenant with the Church, with Religion, with Pastors and Popes and denominations. They are in no Covenant at all, but once they realize that one is needed, they will come into the real-deal, the authentic relationship with the authentic G-d.

Romans 2:12For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. 13For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. 14For when Gentiles, who do not have the law,by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them 16 on that day when,according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.

17But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast in God 18and know his will and approve what is excellent, because you are instructed from the law; 19and if you are sure that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, 20an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of children, having in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— 21 you then who teach others, do you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal? 22You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23You who boast in the law dishonor God by breaking the law. 24For, as it is written, “The name of God is blasphemedamong the Gentiles because of you.”

Those who have the Law will perish within the Law if they try to be saved by their tradition, their “good deeds”according to Churchiantiy, their church membership, being a “Churched” enough person. Those who do not have the Law will perish if they try to be saved by being a “good enough” person.

Both the Churched and unChurched can find themselves in Gehenna despite their best efforts. There is more hope however for the Righteous Gentiles, if the Church would simply step down from being a god, and start allowing individuals who have their life changed by G-D to lead others to G-d, instead of leading them to CHURCH in order to worship the steeple, instead of worshiping G-d under the steeple.

Luke 11:52
Woe to you teachers of the Law (Torah or Church Traditions) For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering.”


In order to reach the Righteous Gentiles, we cannot come as representatives of buildings, non-profit corporations with steeples, political campaigns for those who sport crosses when it gets votes, or pop-culture icons that quote scripture. We must simply come as those who are called by G-d to reveal His character to those who have been authentically seeking Him-the Good, Righteous, Just and Merciful Father, and not the fluff, agendas, campaigns, rituals, emotional pop song hype and marketing that surround Him.

We must be like and about the work of Christ, not like and about the work of Christianity.

Mark 12:14
And they came and said to him, “Teacher, we know that you are true and do not care about anyone’s opinion. For you are not swayed by appearances, but truly teach the way of God.

We must come as the much forgiven that love much. We must come as the blind that can now see the light. The Lame that can walk the straight path. And maybe more importantly, the hearts of stone sent to reveal their new hearts of flesh. We must come as reformed sinners and not as natural born saints.

When the hungry are fed, the sorrowful are comforted, the fatherless are fathered, the widowed are provided for, the victims are granted justice, and the weak are protected, simply out of the Love of G-d within, and NOT out of a shallow attempt at getting someone to say a prayer, attend a service, bow to a preacher or pope, or take out their nose rings and remove their tattoos, then we will be more than white-washed tombs, inviting those seeking the light of life to view simply more dead man’s bones.

Without the Heavier Things of the Law, done out of simple and authentic Love without Strings, everything we do or say is just bait to bring them into the white-washed tombs of Houses of Religion, instead of the House and Family of G-d where they can find the Light of Life.

Hebrews 8:10
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord:I will put my laws into their minds,and write them on their hearts,and I will be their God,and they shall be my people.

Strange Fire
by the Indigo Girls

I come to you with strange fire
I make an offering of love
the incense of my soul is burned
by the fire in my blood
I come with a softer answer
to the questions that lie in your path
I want to harbor you from the anger
find a refuge from the wrath
this is a message
a message of love
love that moves from the inside out
love that never grows tired
I come to you with strange fire
mercenaries of the shrine
now who are you to speak for G-d
with haughty eyes and lying tongues
and hands that shed innocent blood
now who delivered you the power
to interpret calvary
you gamble away our freedom
to gain your own authority
find another state of mind
you know it’s time we all learned
to grab hold
strange fire burns
with the motion of love
when you learn to love yourself
you will dissolve all the stones that are cast
now you will learn to burn the icing sky
to melt the waxen mask
i said to have the gift of true release
this is a peace that will take you higher
oh i come to you with my offering
i bring you strange fire
this is a message
a message of love
love that moves from the inside out
love that never grows tired
i come to you with strange fire
i come to you with strange fire
