Below is a poem from listeners Pat & Jayne burns
We share this with you. Also we have included the study Guide from the Watchman & Friends-‘Gentiles in the Flesh’,
The “dispensation of the Grace of God, until the fulness of the Gentiles come in”.
My voice cries in the wilderness,o help my way.
LORD behold my affliction,for i am lost this day.
from above HE has sent fire into my bones,my way is turned.
hush o my soul,i am in distress,for peace have i yearned.
so many tears i feel,from the light i flee,
dark places have i wandered,oh woe is me.
the chains are heavy,no escape,no way out.
bitterness my bread,rebellion i shout.
dark clouds cover my mind,enemies abound.
fear is my friend,hatred and destruction surround.
from my eyes rivers of water continually play.
LORD if your there help me i pray.
“FEAR NOT MY SON,WITHOLD YOUR CRY.
I HAVE PLEADED YOUR SOUL,YOU SHALL NOT DIE.
MY ANGER IS GREAT,BUT LOVE IS MY GIFT.
I SEND THE EAGLES OF HEAVEN,YOU TO LIFT”.
as a blind man,have i wandered,far and wide.
not seeking for knowledge,not knowing the divide.
for the LORD giveth wisdom,which fools despise.
thank you dear JESUS for opening my eyes.
-Pat & Jayne Burns
“Gentiles in the Flesh”
The “dispensation of the Grace of God, until the fulness of the Gentiles come in”
We were the goy, goyim or goiim is rendered in the AV as nations, heathen, Gentiles:
Under O.T. regulations, the Gentiles were simply non-Israelites, not from the sotck of Abraham, but they were not hated or despised for that reason, and were to be treated almost on a plane of equality, except certain tribes in Canaan with regard to whom there were special regulations of non-intercourse. ISBE p 1215;
In the O.T. Gentiles were part of Jewish life!
Gentile strangers enjoyed the hospitality of Israelites who were commanded to love them!
