Can you tell from the above that requirements for gentiles are different?
The Jerusalem Council
Acts 15:1 And some men came down from Judea and* began teaching* the brothers, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom prescribed by Moses, you cannot be saved.” 2 And after* there was no little strife and debate by Paul and Barnabas against them, they appointed Paul and Barnabas and some others from among them to go up to the apostles and elders in Jerusalem concerning this issue.
We should remember that the circumcision requirement Acts 15:1
is on this side of the first century reformation, as a false zeal. Its has never ben a requirement to be saved. But did point to the unseen substance the Holy Spirit of Christ. The "one" and only Holy Spirit of God.
The shadow found in ceremonial laws became sight or the substance. Circumcision represented "Christ our bloody husband". When Christ said it was finished the veil representing flesh was rent signaling the time of reformation had come . The Old testament saints who had the Spirit of Christ, the Spirit of Grace were transferred for their temporal place the "Bosom of Abraham" as the Holy unseen place of God to the new heavenly Jerusalem as the city prepared as the bride of Christ, our husband.
They received the end of their faith from the beginning just as us today. We look back to that glory the renting of the veil .They looked forward. All of the ceremonial laws had the same connection the suffering before hand of our bloody husband and savor.To include the furniture, candles, the veil. the water containers, silver and gold as part of presenting the gospel beforehand
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace
that should come
unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time (the time of reformation)
the Spirit of Christ
which was in them
did signify, when it
the sufferings of Christ,
and the glory that should follow.
1 Peter 1 :9-11
Circumcision is a sign that pointed ahead to our suffering savoir and the glory that did appear... the opening of the graves as the beginning of the first resurrection had taken place.
Circumcision the temporal seen again is used as a shadow to represent the unseen eternal our bloody husband, Christ.
In Exous 4:24 -26 The Holy Spirit defines circumcision as a work of the gospel in respect to our bloody husband Christ. warned by the work of His gentile
wife Zipporah . God is not served by human hands as a will . Neither Jew not gentile.
And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the Lord
met him, and sought to kill him.
Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a "bloody husband"
art thou to me.So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband
thou art, because of the circumcision.
Circumcision is a shadow of Christ our bloody husband.
