I know it says in new testament, teh Lord is God of the Gentiles also. But i was reading When Christ was intructing the apostles, he said ''do not eneter the way of the gentiles, for Christ came only for the lost sheep of the house of Israel. We are living in babylon, the land of the gentiles! How do InI conduct ourselves with these Gentiles. Do not invite them into our homes? Do not associate with them? I was thinking about serving the gentiles, but i was thinking I must go back to Zion gates and serve there, where i am welcomed. Any advice? Constructive criticism is appreciated

Jah Bless

Young Lion, when you remember a scripture you read, the I should find that scripture again so the I can get an accurate representation of it. There are many websites where you can search for words in the bible to find a scripture if you don't remember where it is, there is also a bible search on this website. The I is mixing two different scriptures together, and if the I read both the scriptures the I is referring to, the I would sight the mercy of God.

When Christ first sent out his disciples, he said,
Matthew 10
[1] And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
[2] Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
[3] Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
[4] Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
[5] These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
[6] But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Later on in the scriptures a woman of Canaan came to Christ
Matthew 15
[22] And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
[23] But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
[24] But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
[25] Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
[26] But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
[27] And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
[28] Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

He initially didn't want to help her because he came for the lost sheep of Israelites, but because of Christ's great Mercy, he healed her daughter anyway.

Then after Christ rose, he told the lost sheep that he had found to teach all nations.
Matthew 28
[18] And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
[19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
[20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

This doesn't mean that every one must teach the Gentiles or other nations outside of Israel, but Christ came so that all would Learn and return to God.

There is a time and season for everything. When Christ first sent his disciples, it was the time and season for only the lost sheep of Israel. Then afterwards, Christ gave the order to Teach all nations in the new season. And then that season finished and in the current season we are in, it is said, "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still."
