Which Commandments Were NOT for Gentiles?

Old Covenant Ordinances

– Animal Sacrifices for Sin

– Circumcision

– Feast Days and the Order of the Jerusalem Temple Priesthood

– Customs of PARTITION and SEPARATION between Jew and Gentile

– Curses and Levitical Laws Added for Israel’s Transgressions

These are the laws and ordinances that were NOT for Gentiles while the Temple in Jerusalem was still in operational order. Most of them expired when Jesus died and the veil was ripped.

After the temple was destroyed, all of these commandments also expired for ALL believers both Jew AND Gentile (Hosea 2:11).

The 10 Commandments Have Never Been Cancelled for Gentiles!

Acts 21:18-25
[18]And the day following Paul went in with us unto James; and all the elders were present.
[19]And when he had saluted them, he declared particularly what things God had wrought among the Gentiles by his ministry.
[20]And when they heard it, they glorified the Lord, and said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and they are all zealous of the law:
[21]And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to CIRCUMCISE THEIR CHILDREN, neither to WALK AFTER THE CUSTOMS.
[22]What is it therefore? the multitude must needs come together: for they will hear that thou art come.
[23]Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men which have a vow on them;
[24]Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but that thou thyself also WALKEST ORDERLY, and keepest the law.
[25]As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they OBSERVE NO SUCH THING, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.

Ephesians 2:14-16
[14]For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of PARTITION BETWEEN US;
[15]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;
[16]And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Hebrews 8:13
[13]In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Hosea 2:11
[11]I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.
