    John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

    Israel had to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God to be justified unto eternal life (John 20:31). Israel had to believe on Jesus and his name (John 1:12 1 John 3:23).

    In John 8:31 it was to believing Jews that Jesus was speaking; Jesus told the Jews that to be his disciple they had to continue in his word.

    The believing Jews had to continue to abide in Christ, the vine, or be cast forth as an unfruitful branch (John 15:6).

    If they continued in his word they would endure to the end (Matthew 24:13 Mark 13:13) and be granted entrance into the promised kingdom on earth and would reign with Christ over the nations (Daniel 7:14 Revelation 5:10 Revelation 20:4).

    And according to you all this had (has) no application to Gentiles?

    The Kingdom of God could only be established in hearts at the first coming of Christ. However, at His Second Coming it will actually be established as a literal visible Kingdom on earth.

    Hello
    I do not see passage as dealing with Gentiles.
    Of course God would reveal that by Paul.
    Gentiles could always come to God through Israel at that time.
    The Gentile nations will be blessed in the kingdom.
