Who Are The Strangers We Are To Love? How Do We Love? | Deuteronomy 10:19


Deuteronomy 10:19 | Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

We, the Israelites, are the strangers referenced in Deuteronomy 10:19. We have been scattered throughout the four corners of the earth, sojourning among foreign nations and lands, without our heritage and strangers to our own covenant with Yahawah through Yahawashi.

Deuteronomy 28:64 | And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone. 65And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

Since the writing of Deuteronomy by Moses, we slowly lost more and more of our heritage as we became corrupted by sin. We became detached from our identify, stopped following the laws statues and commandments and stopped calling on the Most High; up to today where we are, essentially, fully intermingled with the heathen, sometimes indistinguishable physically (through marriage with their women), and worship their false gods. We are lost as a nation and weak.

Regarding the word “stranger” in Deu 19:10–and the scriptures in general–,it is critical to look up the Hebrew word it was originally translated from (or Greek). Depending on the Hebrew word it was  translated from, the same English word can have vastly different meanings, especially when you consider that 1611 old English has different definitions from modern day English. In Deu 19:10, “stranger” in the Hebrew is “gar” meaning sojourner: a temporary inhabitant, a newcomer lacking inherited rights or of foreigners in Israel, though conceded rights.

Now, as the Most High through Yahawashi opens our eyes to the truth and we come back to our heritage, we go from being strangers to the covenant, gentiles in the flesh (but not of the spirit as the heathen nations are) to being newcomers in the faith.

At the time of Yahawashi’s return, the wicked scribes and pharisees hated and sought to cast out the Israelites who were gentiles of the flesh yet earnestly seeking to return to their Israelite heritage.

Those wicked scribes and pharasee of our nation insisted on keeping the laws yet failed to keep the laws themselves, in particular Deuteronomy 10:19.

Matthew 22:40 | 37(Yahawashi) said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment. 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Mindset of the wicked of our nation, circumcised of the flesh but not of the spirit.

Luke 10:29 | But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

Today we are still strangers to a degree, being newcomers to the truth, not born & raised into our heritage, always knowing we are Israelites, neither yet fully matured into the wisdom and obedience or our covenant with Yahawah & Yahawashi. And still, we continue to live, scattered in foreign lands from America to Venezuela, the United Kingdom to Thailand etc.

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; 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:

When the Lord gathers us together again, writes the laws, statues & commandments in our hearts, and places us back in our Holy land we will no longer be sojourners. But, until then, towards other Israelites, who are newcomers to the truth, we are to love them.

Love is to honor, respect and serve one another, as described below in the scriptures.

Romans 13:10 | Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

This love is to welcome these strangers, the lost sheep of the house of Israel, serve them, be fond of them, be merciful towards them, be content with their company, treat them with kindness, generosity and compassion.
