GOI = GENTILE?

B”H
Does the Hebrew word GOI (GOJ) only stand for GENTILE?
The plural of GOI is GOJIM and is the only meaning of the word Gentile or Gentiles? ?
As a matter of fact, the Hebrew word GOI (Plural: GOJIM) means NATION. A GOI is a NATION but not necessarily a Gentile nations. 
In Parashat VA’ETCHANAN in Sefer Devarim (Deuteronomy) 4:7, G – d calls the Jews a GOI GADOL (Great Nation). Many times, the Jews are also being referred to as GOI KADOSH (Holy Nation / People).
Every nation is a GOI. Those of you who think that the word GOI only refers to Gentiles, are very much mistaken.
