    Yahweh's? Salvation is for: All that are Called(John 6:44) Called Not Only Jews But Gentiles Also---I Will Call Them My People(Romans 9:24-33, 10: 1-21) Being of The Blood line Does not Guarantee Salvation(Romans 2:28-29) Through their Fall Salvation is Come Unto The Gentiles to Provoke Them to Jealousy(Romans 11:11) All Nations, Kindreds, People and Tongues, Stood Before The Throne(Revelation 7:9

    The covenant was only given to the Israelites. No one else. Moses said hear ol Israel not everybody. The whole Bible is for the Israelites only the seed of Jacob which his name was changed to Israel. It's very clear. Salvation is only for Israelites. No one else period

    In response to Irene123, I would say this: God is indeed a single being, namely, God the Father. As the Divine Father, he has an only begotten Son. I too have a son. Is my son less than human because he is my son? Of course not! Moreover, my son, a finite being like me, had a beginning. Likewise, God's Son, being infinite, as God his Father is infinite, had no beginning.
