(Lyrics) The Gentiles Are God's People Spoken Version
Words by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©
(Expanded Lyrics Version)

(Please note that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9)

CHORUS:
The Gentiles are God’s people, and they are loved
And they will be called Sons of the Living God
The Gentiles are God’s people, and they are loved
And they will be called Sons of the Living God
The Gentiles are God’s people, and they are loved
And they will be called Sons and Daughters of the Living God
Fathers and Mothers, Sons and Daughters
Of the Living God, who is God Almighty

VERSES:
Through the Gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel
Members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise of Jesus Christ
And the Gentiles will no longer be foreigners and aliens
But fellow citizens with God’s people
And the Gentiles will be members of God’s household
Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets
With Jesus Christ as the chief cornerstone
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid
That by the power of the Holy Spirit Jesus is the Lord and the Christ
For the Holy Spirit is the Lord of lords, King of kings, and God of Gods
And where the Spirit of the Lord is, we have our freedom
For there is but one God, the Father
From whom all things came, and for whom we live
And there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ
Through whom all things came, and through whom we live
So do not boast about work done in another man’s territory
Do not rob the church of Macedonia boasting as a fool out of his mind
When you are not servants of Christ or righteousness
But evil dogs and mutilators of the flesh
Who call themselves benefactors of an eighth king lord of the sabbath
Who is really the devil that fell like lightning from heaven
Who is going to his destruction because he belongs to the seven
And those Jews, who claim to be Jews, though they are not
Who are really liars from the synagogue of Satan
Masquerade as angels of light and servants of righteousness
Yet their end will be what their actions deserve
They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done to the Lambs
They slay James, behead John, strike down Paul and violate the law
They crucify the Lord of Glory to demons which are not God Almighty
They worship detestable idols and kill the prophets
They try to prevent the Gentiles from being saved
And they are an accursed brood heaping up their sins to the limit
And the wrath of God will come upon them at last
They will no longer in the name of Jannes and Jambres
Oppose Moses and reject the truth
For their folly will be clear to everyone
That they are men of depraved minds whose consciences are corrupted
And we will pay no attention to their Jewish myths
Old wives tales and endless genealogies
They will no longer seduce the unstable and weak-willed woman
Making them slaves to their depravity and destructive heresies
For the Lord God Almighty’s armies and the Spirit of Truth
The very Holy Spirit that the devils and devil angels lied to
When they sold Joseph’s land and kept the money for their dishonest gain
These Lucifer worshiping oppressors and captors will now be held captive
Bound in everlasting chains on the Great Day of Judgment
For they will no longer be called noble, they shall be called scoundrels and fools
For they are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good
And they will no longer masquerade with false humility
With their worship of devil angels and heads filled with idol notions
Claiming to be devote observers of the law, yet violating it all
Who study the law only to entrap innocent Lambs in webs of deceit
With made up stories of dos and dos, rules upon rules, a little here, a little there
Who bring the way of truth into disrepute
The entire law is summed up in a single command
To simply love your neighbor as yourself
And these scoffers, grumblers, faultfinders, and flatters of each other
Are mockers of celestial beings for their dishonest gain
They have agreed to lie to the Holy Spirit and test the Spirit of the Lord
When they know God’s righteous decree to those who do such things deserve death
They not only continue to do these very things, but approve of those who practice them
Therefore, hear the word of the Lord you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem
You boast we have entered into a covenant with death
With the grave we have made an agreement
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by us, it cannot touch us
For we have made a lie our refuge, and falsehood our hiding place
So this is what the Sovereign Lord says
See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone
A precious cornerstone for a sure foundation
The one who trusts will never be dismayed
I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line
Hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie
And water will overflow your hiding place
Your covenant will death will be annulled
And your agreement with the grave will not stand
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it
As often as it comes it will carry you away
Morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through
The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror
The bed is too short for you to stretch out on
The blanket too narrow to wrap around you
The Lord will rise up as he did Mount at Perazim
He will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon
To do his work, his strange work
And perform his task, his alien task
Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier
The Lord, the Lord Almighty, has told me
Of the destruction decreed against the whole land

So do not crucify the Lord of Glory to demons, which are not God Almighty
Do not slay James, behead John, strike down Paul and violate the law
Do not claim to be Jews, though you are not
But are liars from the synagogue of Satan
By claiming to be benefactors of an eighth king lord of the sabbath
Who is really the devil that fell like lightning from heaven
Who is going to his destruction because he belongs to the seven
For there is but one God, the Father
From whom all things came, and for whom we live
And there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ
Through whom all things came, and through whom we live
So do not boast about work done in another man’s territory
Do not rob the church of Macedonia boasting as a fool out of his mind
When you are not servants of Christ or righteousness
But evil dogs and mutilators of the flesh
For there are Jews, who claim to be Jews, though they are not
Who are really liars from the synagogue of Satan
They masquerade as angels of light and servants of righteousness
Yet their end will be what their actions deserve
They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done to the Lambs
They slay James, behead John, strike down Paul and violate the law
They crucify the Lord of Glory to demons which are not God Almighty
They worship detestable idols and kill the prophets
They try to prevent the Gentiles from being saved
And they are an accursed brood heaping up their sins to the limit
And the wrath of God will come upon them at last
For the Gentiles are loved, and they are God’s people
And they will be called Sons of the Living God
And the Gentiles will be heirs of the righteousness that comes by faith
And not by the works of jealous idols who do not submit to God’s righteousness
The entire law is summed up in a single command
To simple love your neighbor as yourself
And that law will be written in our hearts and minds
Not engraved on letters of stone
And we will be ministers of a New Covenant
Not of the letter, but of the Spirit
For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom
So we will serve in the new way of the Spirit
And not in the old way of the written code
And circumcision will be circumcision of the heart by the Spirit
And not by the written code
For our praise will come from God Almighty
And not from son of man images of God’s word
For it is Jesus who is the Lord, and it is Jesus who is the Christ
And the water of life is given without price
No longer will we purchase our people as gold refined by fire
From man-made temple foreign gogs
For there will be no temple in the city
For the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb will be its temple
And our people will no longer wear white robes
To keep their supposed shameful nakedness from being seen
For on no day will the gates of the city be shut
And there will be no night there
And light will shine on the Gentiles in the darkness of Galilee
The Gentiles will be obedient to their faith
And it will be grace that sets them free
For now that faith has come we are no longer under the supervision
Of laws that are simply rules taught by men
For the law is merely a shadow of the good things coming
Not the realities themselves
The entire law is summed up in a single command
To simply love your neighbor as yourself
And that perfect law will be written in our hearts and in our minds
Jesus Christ is the end of the law of regulations that are merely rules taught by men
So that there may be a righteousness for everyone who believes
And it is Jesus Christ who has been raised
Not an accusing image of the beast out of a cave
And the deposit will be reclaimed and redeemed as God’s possession
Therefore, in honor of James who demon Herodians had slain
What is guaranteed to come will be God’s faith combined with a deed
And that deed will be called the wrath of God
It will no longer be put aside, but will come upon devils at last
With the Spirit’s sword and the iron rod
There will be a Supper of God
On images of the beast, false prophets, dragons, demons and detestable idols
Which are not God Almighty

So Awake, awake! Clothe yourself with strength O arm of the Lord
Awake, as in days gone by, as in generations of old
Was it not you who cut Rehab to pieces, who pierced that monster through?
Was it not you who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep?
Who made a road in the depths of the sea so that the redeemed might cross over?
The ransomed of the Lord will return, they will enter Zion with singing
Everlasting joy will crown their heads, gladness and joy will overtake them
And sorrow and sighing will be far away
I, even I, am he who comforts you, who are you that you fear mortal man
The sons of man, who are but grass, that you forget the Lord, your maker
Who stretched out the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth
That you live in constant terror every day, because of the wrath of the oppressor
Who is bent on destruction, for where is the wrath of the oppressor
The cowering prisoners will soon be set free, they will not die in their dungeon
Nor will they lack bread, for I am the Lord your God
Who churns up the sea so that its waves roar, the Lord Almighty is his name
I have put my words in your mouth, and covered you with the shadow of my hand
I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth
And who say to Zion you are my people
So hear me, you who know what is right, you people who have my law in their hearts
To love your neighbor as yourself, written in your hearts and in your minds
Not in a written code of do and do, rule upon rule, a little here, a little there
That are ceremonial washings, external regulations, and simply rules taught by men
Do not fear the reproach of these foreign stranger idol worshipping gog men
Or be terrified by their insults, for the moth will eat them up like a garment
And the worm will devour them like wool
But my righteousness will last forever, and my salvation through all generations
For I will take away the chariots from Ephraim
And I will take away the signet rings, gold chains, and fine robes from Joseph
For the Holy Spirit who is the Lord will reject the tents of Joseph
And not choose the tribe of Ephraim
But instead the Spirit of the Lord will choose the tribe of Judah
Mount Zion which he loves
For from Judah will come the cornerstone, from him the tent peg
From him the battle bow, and from him every ruler
Together they will be like mighty men, trampling the muddy streets in battle
Because the Lord God Almighty is with them
And together they will fight and overthrow the horsemen who scatter our sheep
And judge the devil and the devil angels who ransom our Lambs
For Jacob says that Simeon and Levi have swords that are weapons of violence
And that he will not enter their council or join in their assembly
For they have killed men in their anger, and hamstrung oxen as they pleased
Therefore cursed be their anger so fierce, and their fury so cruel
And Jacob says he will scatter them in Jacob, and disperse them in Israel
And in Ezekiel the Sovereign Lord says the Levites went far away from the Lord
And they must bear the consequences of their sin
For they served in the presence of their idols
And they made the House of Israel go astray
After their detestable idols they sacrificed to demons
Which are not God Almighty
And the Levites are not to come near to serve the Sovereign Lord as priests
And the Levites are not to come near any of the Sovereign Lord’s Holy Things
Or any of the Sovereign Lord’s Holy Offerings
And that the Levites must bear the shame of their detestable practices
And they will confess before the priests from the order of Melchizedek
That they are not the Christ
That it is Jesus who is the Christ, and that it is Jesus who is the Lord
And Revelation says there will be no temple in the city for their man-made gog
And man-made gogs will longer set themselves up in God Almighty’s temple
Proclaiming themselves to be God, when they are really devils

And there will no longer be Issachar raw boned talking donkey bits
Who claim their superior lifestyle is the law
Setting themselves up as aliens at the gates of the blind Lambs
For to those of the Issachar tribe who follow Lucifer it will be stated again
The entire law is summed up in simply love your neighbor as yourself
And by agreeing with devils to test the Spirit of the Lord you become angels of Lucifer
And Lucifer lies to the Holy Spirit and robs Joseph’s land
Keeping the money for the devil and the devil’s angel’s dishonest gain
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid
That by the power of the Holy Spirit Jesus is the Lord and the Christ
For the Holy Spirit is the Lord of lords, King of kings, and God of Gods
And where the Spirit of the Lord is, we have our freedom
For there is but one God, the Father
From whom all things came, and for whom we live
And there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ
Through whom all things came, and through whom we live
So do not boast about work done in another man’s territory
Do not rob the church of Macedonia boasting as a fool out of his mind
When you are not servants of Christ or righteousness
But evil dogs and mutilators of the flesh
Who call themselves benefactors of an eighth king lord of the sabbath
Who is really the devil that fell like lightning from heaven
Who is going to his destruction because he belongs to the seven
For there are Jews, who claim to be Jews, though they are not
Who are really liars from the synagogue of Satan
They masquerade as angels of light and servants of righteousness
Yet their end will be what their actions deserve
They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done to the Lambs
They slay James, behead John, strike down Paul and violate the law
They crucify the Lord of Glory to demons which are not God Almighty
They worship detestable idols and kill the prophets
They try to prevent the Gentiles from being saved
And they are an accursed brood heaping up their sins to the limit
And the wrath of God will come upon them at last
They will no longer in the name of Jannes and Jambres
Oppose Moses and reject the truth
For their folly will be clear to everyone
That they are men of depraved minds whose consciences are corrupted
And we will pay no attention to their Jewish myths
Old wives tales and endless genealogies
They will no longer seduce the unstable and weak-willed woman
Making them slaves to their depravity and destructive heresies
For the Lord God Almighty’s armies and the Spirit of Truth
The very Holy Spirit that the devils and devil angels lied to
When they sold Joseph’s land and kept the money for their dishonest gain
These Lucifer worshiping oppressors and captors will now be held captive
Bound in everlasting chains on the Great Day of Judgment
For they will no longer be called noble, they shall be called scoundrels and fools
For they are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good
And they will no longer masquerade with false humility
With their worship of devil angels and heads filled with idol notions
Claiming to be devote observers of the law, yet violating it all
Who study the law only to entrap innocent Lambs in webs of deceit
With made up stories of dos and dos, rules upon rules, a little here, a little there
Who bring the way of truth into disrepute
The entire law is summed up in a single command
To simply love your neighbor as yourself
And these scoffers, grumblers, faultfinders, and flatters of each other
Are mockers of celestial beings for their dishonest gain
They have agreed to lie to the Holy Spirit and test the Spirit of the Lord
When they know God’s righteous decree to those who do such things deserve death
They not only continue to do these very things, but approve of those who practice them

Therefore again, hear the word of the Lord you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem
You boast we have entered into a covenant with death
With the grave we have made an agreement
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by us, it cannot touch us
For we have made a lie our refuge, and falsehood our hiding place
So this is what the Sovereign Lord says
See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone
A precious cornerstone for a sure foundation
The one who trusts will never be dismayed
I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line
Hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie
And water will overflow your hiding place
Your covenant will death will be annulled
And your agreement with the grave will not stand
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it
As often as it comes it will carry you away
Morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through
The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror
The bed is too short for you to stretch out on
The blanket too narrow to wrap around you
The Lord will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim
He will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon
To do his work, his strange work
And perform his task, his alien task
Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier
The Lord, the Lord Almighty, has told me
Of the destruction decreed against the whole land
So do not crucify the Lord of Glory to demons, which are not God Almighty
For the ravenous wolf Saul’s kingdom is going to be removed
When the Holy Spirit reclaims the Lord, and where the Spirit of the Lord is
We will have our freedom
And through the Gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel
Members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise of Jesus Christ
And the Gentiles will no longer be foreigners and aliens
But fellow citizens with God’s people
And the Gentiles will be members of God’s household
Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets
With Jesus Christ as the chief cornerstone
For Jesus Christ is our peace, for he has made the two one
And has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility
By abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations
His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two
Thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile
Both of them to God through the cross
By which he put to death their hostility
He came and preached peace to you who were far away
And peace to those who were near
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit
In him the whole building is joined together
And rises to become a holy temple in the Lord
And in him you too are being built together
To become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit
And the sticks of Judah and Joseph will be joined onto one
He did this to demonstrate his justice
Because in his forbearance he had left the supposed sins unpunished
Because he was without sin
And he did this to demonstrate his justice at the present time
So as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus
For a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law
And the entire law is summed up in a single command
To simply love your neighbor as yourself
And the law is not rules taught by men who consider themselves superior Jews
And there will be trouble and distress for every unbelieving Jew who does evil
Who denies that Jesus is Lord and Christ and has been raised
And the Gentiles will have peace from these supposed superior Jews
When they are obedient to their faith
For God Almighty is King of both the Jews and Gentiles
The human ancestry of Christ was created in the image of God
And God is the head of Christ, Abraham and Christ are mediators, and God is one
Therefore the Gentiles are God’s people, and they are loved
And they will be called Sons of the Living God
