“Son of Man” is a title that Jesus used of himself

Son of Man” is a title that Jesus used of himself. It is found in the Hebrew Scriptures in Daniel 7, where it refers to a heavenly messianic figure.

A too common approach those interested in dismissing the gospel message of Jesus Christ is falsely trying to discredit personally  the gospel messenger and do reflect more eagerness to find supposed faults than to find the truth..

apostle-paul-

Apostle Paul was able to meet and speak to all people as equals no matter what their position. He always actually was what he appeared to be-on the level with the person to whom he was speaking. 

Here is what Apostle Paul himself had to say about being once Jewish. : “Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the He-brews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.” (Philippians 3:5-6) What did it mean to be “a Hebrew of the Hebrews”? Hebrews was a specialized term that referred to Jews who spoke Aramaic and worshiped at Hebrew-speaking congregations, as opposed to Hellenists who spoke and worshiped in Greek?  The phrase “Hebrew of the Hebrews” can be taken in several ways.  This phrase may mean that Paul was born of true Jewish blood, that there is no Gentile in his linage. It is sometimes suggested that Paul is referring to his ability to speak and read Hebrew. Not all Jews spoke the language, especially in the home.  If there is an increasing specificity in the list of descriptions, and Paul is saying that he is from an extremely Jewish family, one that still speaks the language at home.  Paul also wrote: “I am indeed a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but brought up in this city [Jerusalem] at the feet of Gamaliel, taught according to the strictness of our fathers’ law, and was zealous toward God as you all are today.” (Acts 22:3)

.

Paul is a pure-bred true Jew!  But  in Philippians 3 Paul is clear that this Jewish heritage is of no value now that he is “in Christ,” but it seems that Paul’s Jewish heritage is one of the major factors behind his successful Jewish evangelism.

.

The false mostly Jewish assertion that Paul invented a role that Jesus never took for himself is insupportable, but anyone can easily lie to the contrary.

Paul was educated at the feet of one of the most eminent Pharisaic rabbis of his time. In those days, leading rabbis headed schools in which they taught their perspectives and views to disciples.

Too many Jews falsely that Jesus was a good teacher who never claimed to be the Messiah or the Son of God. They also do lie and claim that Paul imported pagan ideas into the Jewish teaching of Jesus in order to appeal to the Gentiles and to create a new religion. Paul, they lie and say, was the false”inventor” of Christianity and a false detractor of Judaism since he had taught that the Torah was of no value. Many Jews since then too falsely too have hated Apostle Paul from the start and no surprise here they tried to kill him many times..

Now one cannot claim Jesus’ teachings were distorted without first knowing what Jesus taught and few of Apostle Paul’s false detractors do even. All those who claim distortion demonstrate a lack of knowledge of Jesus’ real teachings. One need only read the first four books of the New Testament (not written by Paul) to see the invalidity of their false claims.. None of their false  claims about Apostle hold up under real inquiry, and they are all unsupported by the New Testament, Real Christianity. These false Detractors most commonly ascribe Apostolic doctrines such as the deity of Jesus, the resurrection, sacramental meals and baptism to pagan origins. But if you’ll investigate the New testament , you’ll see each of these doctrines or events as being even recorded in the first four books of the New Testament, all not written by Apostle Paul. Two of the four writers there were some of Jesus’ closest associates. John the Baptist, Jesus’ forerunner, practiced baptism long before Paul was on the scene

Paul described his anguish over the disbelief of many fellow Jews: I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh.” (Romans 9:2,3)

When Paul left earth at the end of his earthly life he not only left over 14 local church plants, he followed Jesus Christ’s movement that would eventually spread to the extent that even the Roman Empire itself would surrender to Christianity . History was changed in dramatic fashion through this one man’s obedience. as well.

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:3-5

PS

I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9).

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee (Revelation 3:9).

St. Paul gave the following definition of a Jew:

For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God (Romans 2:28-29).

Most people who call themselves “Jews” today still do  not meet the Bible criterion of being a Jew including the Samaritans and the fake “Jews.

After the end of the Babylonian Captivity, the decree to reestablish the state of Israel and rebuild the Temple was given by king Cyrus in 457 B.C. Many years later, Nehemiah was sent to REPAIR the Temple and he was mightily opposed by Sanballat–Samaritan governor of Samaria:

But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth, And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it. (Nehemiah 4:7-8).

For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie (Revelation 22:15).

The historically  fake Jews changed Psalm 110 to hide the divinity of Christ in the  distorted the Jewish Tanakh version of the Bible, but  they also had changed VIRGIN to YOUNG WOMAN in the prophecy in Isaiah about the VIRGIN birth of the Messiah.  (Isaiah 7:11-14).
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23).

Mistranslation, distortion  of the Scripture, Bible  is the  common approach of liars, impostors,  and cults.

 

Don’t  just quote  just the part of the Bible you want and neglect the rest..  From Scripture, we find that Jesus Christ did unequivocally proclaim himself to be God, and  there are plenty of examples of Jesus identifying Himself as equal to GOD. One very good instance of this is John 10:30, where Jesus said “I and the Father are one.” Jewish religious leaders were so enraged by His words “I and the Father are one” that they were ready to stone Him, saying “… you, a mere man, claim to be God” (John 10:33 NIV). Jesus  tells them again in John 8:58, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”  He was using the name and nature of God to describe Himself (Exodus 3:14) so we can see that Jesus was clearly claiming deity.  John, Jesus’ disciple also claims Jesus’ deity when in his Gospel he says “the Word was God” and “the Word became flesh” (John 1:1, 14). The Word is another name for Jesus. John makes this clear John 1:14-15.  Because of the trinity, Jesus did not claim to be “the Father” but that He was equal to the Father in essence and nature.. Acts 20:28 (NIV) tells us, “Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.” We know who bought the church—the church of God—with His own blood. It was Jesus Christ.  Thomas,   addressed Jesus as “my Lord and my God” in John 20:28. From the book of Titus, which exhorts believers to wait patiently for the coming of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13).  Hebrews 1:8, “But of the Son he says, ‘Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.'” In this passage, the Father refers to Jesus as “O God” indicating that Jesus is indeed God, and that they are equal. Jesus Christ is indeed God. .

JEWS IN REALITY ARE NO LONGER GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE

Jesus-Cross-passion4

The Apostle Paul wrote concerning the Jews, “You who brag about the Law, do you dishonor God by breaking the Law? As it is written: ‘God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you'” (Rom. 2:23-24).

No wonder the Lord GOD said: Wherefore the Lord said, For as much as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, BUT HAVE REMOVED THEIR HEART FAR FROM ME, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men… (Isaiah 29:13)
Isaiah 1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: THEY HAVE FORSAKEN THE LORD, THEY HAVE PROVOKED THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL UNTO ANGER, they are gone away backward.;   Isaiah 1:9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a VERY SMALL REMNANT, WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN AS SODOM, AND WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE UNTO GOMORRAH…[10:20] And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. [21] The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. [22] For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.;

Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, said the greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. He also said that anyone who rejects Him rejects the One (the Father) who sent Him. This means that since all unsaved Jews reject Jesus they do not receive or worship God the Father, either.
NOTICE: This writer does not advocate illegal discrimination or racism or violation of civil rights of Jews or any other ethnic group but merely sates the truth, the fact even that .  Christians should love everyone and even pray for the Jews salvation.now in Jesus Christ as well

It is a lie from Satan that Jews are still God’s chosen people and manypeople falsely still do embrace and teach this also Satan’s lie that Christians should support the State of Israel (Zionism). Also, another lie from Satan is the teaching that God blesses those who bless Israel and He curses those who curse them. (That has not been true for more than 1900 years.) While the Jews may still claim to be God’s chosen people, but they were His chosen people. Only the elect of the Jews (which is an extremely small minority) will be saved.

Jesus Christ, who is God incarnate, pronounced judgment on the Jews for rejecting Him: The Jews generally rejected Jesus, the true Messiah, therefore Jesus cursed the fig tree, which represents Israel, saying, “May you never bear fruit again!” (Mat. 21:18).

When the Jewish chief priests and elders questioned Jesus’ authority He said to them, “I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people [Gentiles] who will produce its fruit” (Mat. 21:43).

When Jesus told a parable to the Jewish chief priests, scribes, and elders (Lk. 20:19), they knew He was talking about them when He said that the vine-growers, to whom the owner had sent his son, killed his son. Then in the parable Jesus asked what will the owner of the vineyard do to those who killed his son, to which He said, “He will come and destroy these vine-growers [Jews] and will give the vineyard to others [Gentiles].”

After hearing this and knowing that Jesus was talking about them, those Jews “tried to lay hands on Him that very hour…and they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, in order that they might catch Him in some statement, so as to deliver Him up to the rule and the authority of the governor” (Lk. 20:9-20).A loving, longsuffering and merciful God sent Jesus to “His own [the Jews], and His own received Him not” (John 1:11). The reason that the Jewish prophet John (the Baptizer) came baptizing with water was to reveal Jesus to Israel (John 1:31). And Jesus said that He was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel (Mat. 15:24).

Near the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry Jesus said, ‘O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. (Mat. 23:37-38).

Paul quoted Isaiah in his epistle to the Christians in Rome, “Concerning Israel he [Isaiah] says, ‘All day long I [God] have held out My hands to a disobedient and obstinate people [the Jews]'” (Rom. 10:21).

After the apostle Paul had preached the Gospel to Jews in cities throughout Asia and was, for the most part, rejected by them, he turned to the Gentiles and ministered to them.Thus the arlyt church was composed now mainly of Gentiles and not of Jews as the Messianic Jews would lie and say otherwise too.

Near the end of Paul’s ministry, when he was in Rome under house arrest, he spoke to a large gathering of Jews. Paul explained and declared to them the kingdom of God and tried to convince them about Jesus from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets.The great apostle concluded his sermon by saying, “The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your [Jewish] forefathers when He said through Isaiah the prophet: ‘Go to this people and say, ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn and I would heal [save] them.’ Therefore I want you to know that God’s salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen” (Acts 28:17-28).

When the Jews cried out over and over to crucify Jesus, and Pilate wanted to release Him, all the Jews said, “Let His blood be on us and on our children!” (Mat. 27:25).

Jesus prophesied God’s destruction of Jerusalem that would take place in 70 A.D. at the hands of the Roman general Titus (Mat. 24:1-2; Lk. 19:41-44). According to Josephus, the first-century Jewish historian, more than 1,000,000 Jews died when Jerusalem was laid siege to and destroyed as Jesus had prophesied 40 years earlier.

This was because of the general rejection of Christ by the Jews, and until this day they still reject Jesus Christ as the Messiah and Savior and the only way to heaven.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man [including Jews] cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (Jn. 14:6). There are very few Jews today who will repent of their sins and be born again and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and only way to God to Father.

In 614 A.D. the Persians captured Jerusalem and massacred the inhabitants. The so-called “Christian” Crusaders captured Jerusalem in 1099. Several times since then Jerusalem has fallen into the hands of Moslems and “Christians.” There is no reason to believe that the Crusaders were truly born-again Christians, anymore than the vast majority of Roman Catholics.

Paul in Romans 9:27 referred to Isaiah when he wrote, “Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, [only] a remnant shall be saved.”

The apostle Paul (a born-again Jew) said that the minds of the Jews have been made dull and to this day a “veil” covers their hearts when the Old Covenant is read, and only in Christ is it taken away (2 Cor. 3:14-16).

Aren’t Jews, including Jews who reject Jesus as Lord, nevertheless still Abraham’s seed and heirs to the promise given Abraham? The scriptures clearly tell us that Jesus is the seed (Galatians 3:16), and all who have faith in Him are “of Abraham’s seed.” It is not by race but through faith that God’s elect are called and chosen. God makes no distinction between races. All men, Jew and Gentile alike, are called to serve Him: 

“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek…for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:27-29)

What a revelation! God pays no mind to a person’s race or national origin. Faith in Jesus is what truly counts. Flesh and blood cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven, “Ye must be born again in spirit and in truth.” (John 3:3)

The false Zionist teachers are bigots who claim that only people of a certain race, Jews, are Abraham’s seed and heirs to the promise. But what does God’s Word say? “If ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.” So who are you going to believe? the still Jewish fables of the still lying and deceitful men, or the inspirational, life-giving truth found in God’s Word?;  God is a loving God, no doubt about that. But what a horrible thing to accuse God of loving one set of people, one race, more than all others. Abraham, we are told in Romans 4:3-25, was chosen of God for one reason and one reason only: He believed! Abraham was a man of faith! It wasn’t Abraham’s blood or race that brought him favor with God. It was his faith. God does not choose men and women for his kingdom based on their race or blood, but by whether or not they have faith in Jesus Christ. In fact, the Bible says that everyone on earth has come from only one blood! God… …hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth…(Acts 17:26); There was never any  no room in God’s great plan for the Jewish doctrine that the Jewish  race was or is a Master Race.;the poisonous teachings—so prevalent today among the Judaizers and Zionists;

Justin Martyr, in 116 A.D. wrote, “The Jews were behind all the persecutions of the Christians. They wandered through the country everywhere hating and undermining the Christian faith.” Albert Einstein, a Jew, and an atheist said in a letter to philosopher Eric Gutkind dated 1/3/1954 that Jews were not God’s chosen people. The renowned physicist wrote, “For me the Jewish religion like all others is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions.” Einstein said, “And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people.” He wrote, “The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.”;

Concerning the Jews Einstein wrote, “As far as my experience goes, they are no better than other human groups…I cannot see anything ‘chosen’ about them.” President Harry S. Truman wrote in his diary on 7/21/1947, “The Jews, I find, are very, very selfish…[W]hen they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment of the underdog.” Remember also  that Hitler and his close advisors were Jews. So was Lenin and his  family, close advisors now too.  Now  in 1977 Israel passed a law that prohibits anyone, including Christians, from leading the Jews to change their religion. So this shows what they really are still.. an Ungodly nation..

What should be the attitude of Christians toward Christ-rejecting Jews? Christians should love the Jews as well as any other nation  just as we should love the heathen in North America or in Africa. Paul wrote that “all Israel shall be saved” (Rom. 11:26), but the apostle also wrote that “though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, [only] a remnant shall be saved” (Rom. 9:27). All true Israel is only a remnant. During the Great Tribulation 144,000 likley Jews will be saved, but this is only a small remnant compared to the millions of Jews living today. The Christ-rejecting Jews are no different than anyone else who has not repented of their sins and been born again. Pray for the Jews, love them, ask God to have mercy on them, and share the true Gospel with those who will listen.

Matthew 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward..
