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.
Matthew 15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
Matthew 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Matthew 15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
Matthew 15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
Matthew 15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
Matthew 15:28 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.
DID JESUS INSULT THE WOMAN calling her a DOG? NO!
Who are THE CHILDREN to whom the BREAD ( HEALING) was RESERVED TO? .......what about the fact that because she BLESSED ISRAEL (Genesis 12:3King James Version (KJB)
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.) she received her petition even though she was a GENTILE DOG?
What does PAUL teach here:
Ephesians 2:11 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;
Ephesians 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
..............Fact is the 4 Gospels,also called RED LETTERS are OLD TESTAMENT BOOKS.....
Hebrews 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
Hebrews 9:17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth...
CHRIST DIES at the end of the 4 Gospels...
Paul tells us:Romans 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:..
Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,...
PROPHECY and MYSTERY are MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE...
It is TRAGIC that MILLIONS MISS THE GOSPEL OF GRACE and RELY on their "REPENTANCE,CONFESSION OF SINS,WATER BAPTISM,TITHING etc etc " and MISS THE GOSPEL OF GRACE that ONLY PAUL PREACHES and TEACHES.....think about it..... Matthew 10:6
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. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
But he answered and said,
I am not sent but unto
the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
