ABOUT THE IGNORANT ONES

10 1_n

 

IT SEEMS SADLY MANY PERSONS STILL DO FALL INTO THE SAME DEVIL’S TRAP CAUSE THEY ARE JESUS, GOD, HOLY SPIRIT, BIBLE IGNORANT STILL

.

1 Peter 5: 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

.

2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

.

Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

.

Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

.

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. .

Who really are the Judaizers?

jesus_o

.
Who really are the Judaizers? “Judaizers” Those who attempt to make Jews out of the Christians.
.

Why do real Christians refer solely  to the Messiah Greek name  as “Jesus” when the Messianic  Jews falsely call him by his Hebrew name only … Most  Jews are devil followers and they do basically they still hate Jesus the name  above all names
.
”  Judaizers Those who adopted Jewish religious practices or sought to influence others to do so. TheGreek verbioudaizo [Ioudai?zw] (“to judaize”) appears only once in theSeptuagint ( Esther8:17 ) and once in the New Testament ( Gal 2:14 ). In theSeptuagint this verb is used in relation to the Gentiles in Persia who adopted Jewishpractices in order to avoid the consequences of Esther’s decree ( Esther 8:13 ), whichpermitted Jews to avenge the wrongs committed against them. The Septuagint not only usesioudaizo[Ioudai?zw]to translate the Hebrew mityahadim (“to become a Jew”), but addsthatthese Gentiles were circumcised.In Galatians 2:14 it means to “live like Jews” (RSV, neb, NASB, Phillips),”follow Jewish customs” (NIV), or “live by the Jewish law”(Barclay). The context for this reference is the episode in Antioch when Paul condemnsPeter’s withdrawal from table fellowship with Gentile Christians. Peter’s actions areviewed by Paul as a serious compromise of the gospel of salvation by grace through faithalone, lending support to the position that sought to impose Jewish ceremonial law on theGentiles. Thus, Paul interprets Peter’s withdrawal in terms of its effect in compellingGentile Christians to live like Jews.

.

The term “Judaizer” has come to be used in theological parlance to describethe opponents of Paul and Barnabas at the Jerusalem Council (Acts 15) and those who soughtto preach “another gospel” in the churches of Galatia ( Galatians 2:4 Galatians 2:12 ; 6:12 ; cf. Php 3:2 ). In thissense, “Judaizers” refers to Jewish Christians who sought to induce Gentiles toobserve Jewish religious customs: to “judaize.” It appears that theseindividuals agreed with much of the apostolic kerygma but sought to regulate the admissionof Gentiles into the covenant people of God through circumcision and the keeping of theceremonial law. Insisting that “Unless you are circumcised … you cannot besaved” (Acts15:1 ), these “believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees” ( Acts 15:5 ) posed aserious threat to the gospel of grace and the uNIVersality of the Christian mission.

.

Paul’s Galatian epistle portrays the Judaizers as having come from the Jerusalem churchto his churches in Galatia, stressing the need for Gentiles to be circumcised and keep thelaw, both for full acceptance by God (legalism) and as the basis for Christian living (nomism[novmisma]).They understood keeping the law not only as the means by which the blessings of theAbrahamic covenant could be appropriated, but also as the regulative guide for Christianlife within that covenant relationship. Although the Judaizers appear to be concerned withbringing the Galatian Christians to perfection through the observance of the law, Paulcharges them with being motivated by a desire to avoid persecution ( Gal 6:12-13 ).Amidst the rising pressures of Jewish nationalism in Palestine during the mid-firstcentury, and increased Zealot animosity against any Jew who had Gentile sympathies, itwould appear that these Jewish Christians embarked on a judaizing mission among Paul’sconverts in order to prevent Zealot persecution of the Palestinian church. ”

.
There have always been those who balk at the idea of God’s salvation being offered freely to those who believe. They falsely want to offer personally some kind of payment for it. .They falsely view Christ’s death as being insufficient without the active and continued cooperation of the one being saved. but there is nothing we as sinners can do to pay off the debt we owe to God.In the early church, those who taught a combination of God’s grace and human effort were called “Judaizers.” The word Judaizer comes from a Greek verb meaning “to live according to Jewish customs.” The word appears in Galatians 2:14 where Paul describes how he confronted Peter for forcing Gentile Christians to “Judaize.” Paul says, “If by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace” (Romans 11:6). Praise the Lord, “Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1).
.
The doctrine of the Judaizers was a mixture of grace (through Christ) and works (through the keeping of the Law). This false doctrine was dealt with in Acts 15 and strongly condemned in the book of Galatians.  At the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15, a group of Judaizers opposed Paul and Barnabas. Some men who belonged to the party of the Pharisees insisted that Gentiles could not be saved unless they were first circumcised and obeyed the Law of Moses. Paul made the case that, in Christ, there was no longer any distinction between Jew and Gentile, for God had purified the hearts of the Gentiles by faith (Acts 15:8–9). He said it plainly in Galatians 2:16: “A man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified.” To add anything to the work that Christ did for salvation is to negate God’s grace. We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, not by returning to the Law. “I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing” (Galatians 2:21).
.
There are many groups today with beliefs/practices very similar to the Judaizers of the New Testament. One of  most prominent would be the Hebrew Roots Movement and the Sacred Name Movement  The teachings of the Hebrew Roots Movement are virtually identical to those of the Judaizers whom Paul rebuked in Galatians. A primary focus of the Hebrew Roots Movement is to put followers of Christ back under the bondage of the Old Testament Law. As opposed to what the Hebrew Roots movement claims, the New Testament teachings of the Apostle Paul are perfectly clear and self-explanatory. Colossians 2:16,17 says, “Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day – things which are a shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.” Romans 14:5 states, “One person regards one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind.” Scripture clearly indicates that these issues are a matter of personal choice. These verses and many others give clear evidence that the Mosaic Covenant laws and ordinances have ended. Continuing to teach that the Old Covenant is still in effect in spite of what the New Testament teaches, or twisting the New Testament to agree with the Hebrew Roots beliefs, is false teaching.
.
The Sacred Name Movement developed from the Church of God (Seventh Day) in the 1930s. The Sacred Name Movement falsely teaches that only “Yahweh” is to be used as the name for God and only “Yahshua” is to be used as the name for Jesus. According to the Sacred Name Movement, the use of any other name is blasphemy. In addition to a strong emphasis on the use of the original Hebrew names for God and Jesus, the Sacred Name Movement also teaches that followers of Yeshua must obey the Old Testament Law, especially the commands regarding the seventh-day Sabbath, the kosher food laws, and the Jewish festivals.   The Sacred Name Movement fails to understand that the Savior did not come to expand Judaism or the Old Covenant. The Savior came to fulfill the Old Covenant and establish the New Covenant. Messiah’s death and resurrection fulfilled the requirements of the Law and freed us from its demands (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:15). The Old Covenant was but a shadow (Hebrews 8). The New Covenant, established by our Savior/Messiah, is a fulfillment, not a continuation.  Our salvation is not dependent on our ability to properly pronounce God’s name in Hebrew. Our relationship with God is not based on our obedience to the Old Covenant that our Messiah perfectly fulfilled.
.
According to the Messianic Jews Jesus  was a Torah observant, tallit wearing, synagogue attending, Sabbath and feast-keeping, kosher Jew who observed the 7 holy days too.. and yet this was never substantiated in the New Testament and why?
.
God told the Jews only  to celebrate the Biblical feasts FOREVER (Leviticus 23:21, 31, 41, Exodus 12:14),  yet this too next  was never substantiated in the New Testament and why?
.
Where in new Testament Scripture does Jesus or the Apostles  tell any Christians to observe the original, seventh day Sabbath (Gen 2:1-2) It does not and why not? They clearly did not observe it..
.
Messianic Jews do lie and  state that all of the Jewish believers in Jesus regulatory continued meeting at synagogue (or the Temple) for the  Sabbath. when clearly the Jews had  kicked them out of them…. so all of the Christians met on Sundays instead..  The Old Testament law was never intended by God to be the universal law for all people for all of time but only for the Jews till Jesus came..
.
Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.Hebrews 7:16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
.
Christians insist that “the law” was abolished. You won’t find anything in new testament Scripture to show that Torah was not abolished.  None of the Old Testament law is binding on Christians today. When Jesus died on the cross, He put an end to the Old Testament law (Romans 10:4;Galatians 3:23–25; Ephesians 2:15). In place of the Old Testament law, Christians are under the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2), which is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…and to love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39). If we obey those two commands, we will be fulfilling all that Christ requires of us: “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Matthew 22:40).
.
Does Scripture command us to celebrate the birth or resurrection of the Messiah via Christmas and Easter? Does it  command us not to do so? It does not. It is quite easy to spot a Judaizers as they strongly and falsely object to celebrating the birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ
.
The Bible in several places states that God’s Word is FOREVER. “Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89). Does that mean all of God’s commandments and Covenants never change are forever? God himself never changes only. Jesus Christ the Word is  same, yesterday, today and forever.
 .
I am persuaded that the “accursed gospel” (Galatians 1) of the Judaizers is the number one problem plaguing the weakened, apostate Christian Church. If a man or woman buys this lie, he will be sucked into believing every lie! This is the leaven that spoils the whole. The Judaizer Lie is the very Lie and Abomination that the Antichrist, the Son of Perdition, will someday soon declare from the pulpit of a rebuilt, unholy, last days Temple of the Jews in Jerusalem (see II Thes. 2).

Jewish settlers attack US officials visiting West Bank

In an incident likely to further chill US-Israeli relations, Jewish settlers threw rocks at American officials visiting the West Bank Friday to look into Palestinian claims that settlers had uprooted scores of their olive trees.

Now  all this Jewish Israel problem could have been avoided a long time ago.. Many prominent Jewish figures over the past century — from Albert Einstein to -Sigmund Freud:- have opposed the idea of an ethnically exclusive Israeli state and it is still not supported by Jesus, any of the Apostles, the New Testament ..

Sigmund Freud:  “I concede with sorrow that the baseless fanaticism of our people is in part to be blamed for the awakening of Arab distrust. I can raise no sympathy at all for the misdirected piety which transforms a piece of a Herodian wall into a national relic, thereby offending the feelings of the natives.”

Albert Einstein:  “The (Israeli) state idea is not according to my heart. I cannot understand why it is needed. It is connected with many difficulties and a narrow-mindedness. I believe it is bad.”

.

Dispensationalists believe that the Jews are God’s special Chosen People who do NOT need to believe in Jesus Christ in order to be saved, but instead will be saved purely by their race. They also support the slaughter of the Palestinians by the Jews so the land can be confiscated completely by Israel making way for the Jews to rebuild the Third Temple on the Temple mount in Jerusalem, facilitating, or so they incorrectly believe, the hastening of the Second Coming of Christ. They also endorse the destruction of all enemies of the Jews, including the Iraqis, the Iranians, the Lebanese, the Syrians, etc., because they have been deceived into believing that God will bless those who bless the Jews, no matter how murderous, wicked, and Anti-Christ is the behavior of Israel and the Jews. But the fact is, it is impossible to be a true Christian while supporting the murderous acts of Israel and the Jewish leaders. Those who claim to be “Christian” while supporting Israeli and Jewish Anti-Christ policies have naively given their allegiance to Satan. God is not interested in ethnicity, gender, or whether a person is a slave or free. He is “no respecter of persons.” He has no caste system. He is only interested in whether we have learned to trust Him or not. Are we a Believer in the One True God, or are we an Unbeliever?

.

Galatians, Chapter 3, tells us clearly that the “seed (offspring) of Abraham” is Christ – and also HIS followers.
6 Even as Abraham believed (had faith in) God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness7 Know ye therefore that they that are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen (nations) through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying In thee shall all nations be blessed9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that continues not in all things that are written in the book of the law to do them.11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith (by believing that God WILL do ALL He has promised to do).12 And the law is not of faith: but, the man that doeth them shall live in them.13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the “Gentiles” (heathen – nations – Unbelievers) through Jesus Christ that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (belief).15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s testament (covenant), yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one,And to thy seed, which is Christ.17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law that was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.19 What therefore is the purpose of the law? It was ADDED because of transgressions, till the seed (Jesus Christ) should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given that could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.22 But the scripture has concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.26 For ye are all children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. (This is eonian life!)28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.29 And if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

.
The “seed” of Abraham is CHRIST and His followers – the true Christians – the true “Israel” – NOT the Jews!

.

The religion of the Israelites in the Old Testament was/is Christianity! Jesus, Himself, said so. “You search the Scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal (eonian) life; but they are they which testify of Me. John 5:39
The Old Testament is about Christ – NOT about Israel! Therefore, the religion of the Old Testament is/was – – – Christianity!

.

The rejection of truth by the leaders of the Israelites had thrown them into such profound darkness that they could no longer even discern truth. Instead, they rejected truth and “believed a lie” and murdered God/Jesus Christ.
“Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2 Thessalonians 2:10,11And the Pharisees, Sadducees and their followers in the Organized Church of the day, committed a cosmic crime by murdering God! Jesus Christ is/was God – in human form.

.
“And they shall call His (Jesus’) name Emmanuel, meaning GOD with us.” (Matthew 1:23)   The Old Testament is about Christ – NOT about Israel! Therefore, the religion of the Old Testament is/was – – – Christianity!

WHERE did Judaism come from and WHEN did it begin? The true Christianity of the Israelites was slowly subverted by an underground current of the spiritual ancestors of the Pharisees. This covert corruption began with the worship of the golden calf in the wilderness, then continued with the worship of the pagan god Baal, and then grew to include child sacrifice through the fire to the pagan god Molech. The growth of this undercurrent of evil among the Israelites can be documented throughout the entire Old Testament. Moses chastised the Israelites when they turned their back on God. Joshua also warned them. During Samuel’s time, the Israelites demanded a king to rule them “as the other nations” had rather than allowing God to be their King. The prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah were later sent to warn the Israelites of their apostasy. God showed Ezekiel the abominations secretly going on in Israel. (Ezekiel 8:5-17) Then said He (God) unto me (Ezekiel), Son of man, lift up your eyes, and look toward the north. So I lifted up my eyes toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar is the image of jealousy in the entrance.He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, do you see what they do? Even the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, that I should go far off from My sanctuary? But turn again, and you shall see greater abominations.And He brought me to the door of the court (of the temple): and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.Then He said unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged I the wall, behold a doorAnd He said unto me, Go in and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.So I went in and saw: and behold every form of creeping things (insects) and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, carved on the walls round about.And there stood before them seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. (The leaders of Israel were secretly worshipping beasts and creeping things as did the pagan Egyptians.)Then said He unto me, Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, The Lord does not see us; the Lord has forsaken the land.He said also unto me, Turn yet again, and you shall see greater abominations that they do.Then He brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and behold, there sat womenweeping for Tammuz (A Sumerian fertility god)Then said He unto me, Have you seen this, O son of man? Turn yet again and you shall see greater abominations than these.And He brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house, and behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.Then He said unto me, Have you seen this, O son of man? Is it a trivial thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? For they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke Me to anger . . . Here Ezekiel documents this evil undercurrent that was corrupting the true Christianity of the Israelites. The leaders of the Temple were worshiping idols, beasts and creeping things, the Sumerian fertility god, Tammuz, and they were worshiping the pagan sun godin secret! When God raised up prophets to rebuke Israel for their waywardness, the prophets were ignored, imprisoned or stoned to death.  Eventually, the Israelites were taken captive by Babylon because of their apostasy. Finally, Jesus, the Messiah, came but this wicked undercurrent had taken hold in such a strong way that the Pharisees and the Sadducees had become so arrogant and self-righteous that they accused Jesus of being a demon-controlled imposter. Jesus rebuked the leaders for bringing false doctrines into the beliefs of the Christian Israelites by promoting traditions that “made the commandments of God of none effect.” “Thus you have made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Matthew 15:6And He (Jesus) said unto them (the Pharisees), Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your owntradition. Mark 7:9

.

Once they had rejected and killed the Messiah, Jesus Christ, they fell into even deeper darkness. In A.D. 70, Jerusalem and the temple in it were destroyed. Many of the Pharisees ended up in Babylon where these abominable oral “traditions of the elders” were committed to writing and became known as the Babylonian Talmud, the “holiest” book of Judaism. This evil undercurrent that had been smoldering for hundreds of years had now taken over completely, and a new occult religion was born – the religion of Judaism. THESE were the originators of Judaism – the religion of Anti-Christ!

.
Then what does the term “Judeo-Christian” mean? The term “Judeo-Christian” is an oxymoron, the combining of two words defining two diametrically opposing systems of belief. It’s similar to using the term “blackish-white” or cloning a human being combined with a beast. The authors of Judaism were the Pharisees – the murderers of Christ!
The values of Judaism are violently opposed to the values of Christianity as will be shown by quotes from their “holiest” book, the Talmud, including the Talmudic quotes that calls for theft from, lying to, and murdering of Christians – by the Jews.

,
The term “Judeo-Christian” is a farce, total nonsense, and an abominable lie. It has been foisted on, and embraced by, almost all who refer to themselves as “Christians.” But how can they call themselves Christians when they are essentially worshiping the followers of Judaism who ridicule, curse and denounce Jesus Christ?

THE JEWISH TEMPLE UNDER KING DAVID AND KING SOLOMON WAS A GLORY IN ITS TIME. TWO TERRIBLE DESTRUCTIONS IN 586 B.C. 70 A.D HAVE LEFT THE TEMPLE MOUNT WHAT IT IS TODAY, AN EMPTY DESOLATION.

.

Jerusalem has seen two temples built on the Temple Mount. The first was built by King Solomon close to 3,000 years ago. It was destroyed by the armies of Nebuchadnezzar in 586 B.C.

The second temple was built under Zerubbabel during the years 520-516 B.C. This was destroyed in 70 A.D.

.

 Since the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D. there has been a   desire among many observant Jews  to rebuild the Jewish Temple. The rebuilding of the temple is not sanctioned by God.  Jesus, the Holy Spirit nor promised directly as such too.. there is  no need for a third temple as Jesus is the temple now.

John 8: 23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

.

John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

 The recent return of the Jews to Israel  in 1948 was not the first attempt since God himself now had kicked them out for the third time out of Israel in 70 AD.. as there was also an attempt in 361 AD
.

c.324–325: Emperor Constantine wins the Civil Wars of the Tetrarchy (306–324) and reunites the empire.  A significant wave of Christian immigration to Jersualem begins. This is the date on which the city is generally taken to have been renamed Jerusalem.

c.325: The ban on Jews entering the city remains in force, but they are allowed to enter once a year to pray at the Western Wall on Tisha B’Av.

c.361: Neoplatonist Julian the Apostate becomes Roman Emperor and  Alypius of Antioch is commissioned to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem and Jews are allowed to return to the city 

.

c.363: The Galilee earthquake of 363 together with the re-establishment of Christianity‘s dominance following the death of Julian the Apostate at the Battle of Samarra ends attempts to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.

.

636–7: Siege of Jerusalem (637)  Caliph Umar the Great conquers Jerusalem and enters the city on foot, following the decisive defeat of the Byzantine Empire at the Battle of Yarmouk a few months earlier.[3] Patriarch Sophronius and Umar are reported to have agreed the Covenant of Umar I, which guaranteed Christians freedom of religion but prohibited Jews from living in the city according to Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari. Jerusalem becomes part of the Jund Filastin province of the Arab Caliphate.

  The state of Israel in 1948 came into being through acts of terror, murder of unarmed Palestinians and the expulsion of 750,000 from their homes, creating the largest and longest refugee  problem in history.  Arnold J. Toynbee said, “The treatment of the Palestinian Arabs in 1947 and 1948 was as morally indefensible as the slaughter of six million Jews by the Nazis…though not comparable in quantity to the crimes of the Nazis, it was comparable in quality.”
.

  Majority of th Jews worldwide  refuse to go back to Israel still   At Rosh Hashanah 2014, Israel’s population stood at 8,252,500.  75% percent of them are Jewish (about 6,102,900 individuals),

.

  Jews are no longer God’s chosen, people, race rather the real Christians now are. Christians alone now are the chosen people of God

.
 .
 Jesus and the Apostles did not speak Hebrew or Aramaic but more likely Greek as the new Testament was written in Greek by the apostles. 

 .
Why do real Christians refer solely  to the Messiah Greek name  as “Jesus” when the Messianic  Jews falsely call him by his Hebrew name only … Most  Jews are devil followers and they do basically they still hate Jesus the name  above all names
.

Who really  are the Judaizers? “Judaizers” whose who attempt to make Jews out of  the Christians.

.
”  Judaizers Those who adopted Jewish religious practices or sought to influence others to do so. TheGreek verbioudaizo [Ioudai?zw] (“to judaize”) appears only once in theSeptuagint ( Esther8:17 ) and once in the New Testament ( Gal 2:14 ). In theSeptuagint this verb is used in relation to the Gentiles in Persia who adopted Jewishpractices in order to avoid the consequences of Esther’s decree ( Esther 8:13 ), whichpermitted Jews to avenge the wrongs committed against them. The Septuagint not only usesioudaizo[Ioudai?zw]to translate the Hebrew mityahadim (“to become a Jew”), but addsthatthese Gentiles were circumcised.In Galatians 2:14 it means to “live like Jews” (RSV, neb, NASB, Phillips),”follow Jewish customs” (NIV), or “live by the Jewish law”(Barclay). The context for this reference is the episode in Antioch when PaulcondemnsPeter’s withdrawal from table fellowship with Gentile Christians. Peter’s actionsareviewed by Paul as a serious compromise of the gospel of salvation by grace throughfaithalone, lending support to the position that sought to impose Jewish ceremonial law ontheGentiles. Thus, Paul interprets Peter’s withdrawal in terms of its effect incompellingGentile Christians to live like Jews.The term “Judaizer” has come to be used in theological parlance to describethe opponents of Paul and Barnabas at the Jerusalem Council (Acts 15) and those who soughtto preach “another gospel” in the churches of Galatia ( Galatians 2:4 Galatians 2:12 ; 6:12 ; cf. Php 3:2 ). In thissense, “Judaizers” refers to Jewish Christians who sought to induce Gentiles toobserve Jewish religious customs: to “judaize.” It appears that theseindividuals agreed with much of the apostolic kerygma but sought to regulate the admissionof Gentiles into the covenant people of God through circumcision and the keeping of theceremonial law. Insisting that “Unless you are circumcised … you cannot besaved” (Acts15:1 ), these “believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees” ( Acts 15:5 ) posedaserious threat to the gospel of grace and the uNIVersality of the Christian mission.Paul’s Galatian epistle portrays the Judaizers as having come from the Jerusalem churchto his churches in Galatia, stressing the need for Gentiles to be circumcised and keep thelaw, both for full acceptance by God (legalism) and as the basis for Christian living (nomism[novmisma]).They understood keeping the law not only as the means by which the blessings of theAbrahamic covenant could be appropriated, but also as the regulative guide for Christianlife within that covenant relationship. Although the Judaizers appear to be concerned withbringing the Galatian Christians to perfection through the observance of the law, Paulcharges them with being motivated by a desire to avoid persecution ( Gal 6:12-13 ).Amidst the rising pressures of Jewish nationalism in Palestine during the mid-firstcentury, and increased Zealot animosity against any Jew who had Gentile sympathies, itwould appear that these Jewish Christians embarked on a judaizing mission among Paul’sconverts in order to prevent Zealot persecution of the Palestinian church. “
.
There have always been those who balk at the idea of God’s salvation being offered freely to those who believe. They falsely want to offer personally some kind of payment for it. .They falsely view Christ’s death as being insufficient without the active and continued cooperation of the one being saved. but there is nothing we as sinners can do to pay off the debt we owe to God.In the early church, those who taught a combination of God’s grace and human effort were called “Judiazers.” The word Judaizer comes from a Greek verb meaning “to live according to Jewish customs.” The word appears in Galatians 2:14 where Paul describes how he confronted Peter for forcing Gentile Christians to “Judaize.” Paul says, “If by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace” (Romans 11:6). Praise the Lord, “Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1).
.
The doctrine of the Judiazers was a mixture of grace (through Christ) and works (through the keeping of the Law). This false doctrine was dealt with in Acts 15 and strongly condemned in the book of Galatians.  At the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15, a group of Judaizers opposed Paul and Barnabas. Some men who belonged to the party of the Pharisees insisted that Gentiles could not be saved unless they were first circumcised and obeyed the Law of Moses. Paul made the case that, in Christ, there was no longer any distinction between Jew and Gentile, for God had purified the hearts of the Gentiles by faith (Acts 15:8–9). He said it plainly in Galatians 2:16: “A man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified.” To add anything to the work that Christ did for salvation is to negate God’s grace. We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, not by returning to the Law. “I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing” (Galatians 2:21).
.
There are many groups today with beliefs/practices very similar to the Judaizers of the New Testament. One of  most prominent would be the Hebrew Roots Movement and the Sacred Name Movement  The teachings of the Hebrew Roots Movement are virtually identical to those of the Judaizers whom Paul rebuked in Galatians. A primary focus of the Hebrew Roots Movement is to put followers of Christ back under the bondage of the Old Testament Law. As opposed to what the Hebrew Roots movement claims, the New Testament teachings of the Apostle Paul are perfectly clear and self-explanatory. Colossians 2:16,17 says, “Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day – things which are a shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.” Romans 14:5 states, “One person regards one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind.” Scripture clearly indicates that these issues are a matter of personal choice. These verses and many others give clear evidence that the Mosaic Covenant laws and ordinances have ended. Continuing to teach that the Old Covenant is still in effect in spite of what the New Testament teaches, or twisting the New Testament to agree with the Hebrew Roots beliefs, is false teaching.
.
The Sacred Name Movement developed from the Church of God (Seventh Day) in the 1930s. The Sacred Name Movement falsely teaches that only “Yahweh” is to be used as the name for God and only “Yahshua” is to be used as the name for Jesus. According to the Sacred Name Movement, the use of any other name is blasphemy. In addition to a strong emphasis on the use of the original Hebrew names for God and Jesus, the Sacred Name Movement also teaches that followers of Yeshua must obey the Old Testament Law, especially the commands regarding the seventh-day Sabbath, the kosher food laws, and the Jewish festivals.   The Sacred Name Movement fails to understand that the Savior did not come to expand Judaism or the Old Covenant. The Savior came to fulfill the Old Covenant and establish the New Covenant. Messiah’s death and resurrection fulfilled the requirements of the Law and freed us from its demands (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:15). The Old Covenant was but a shadow (Hebrews 8). The New Covenant, established by our Savior/Messiah, is a fulfillment, not a continuation.  Our salvation is not dependent on our ability to properly pronounce God’s name in Hebrew. Our relationship with God is not based on our obedience to the Old Covenant that our Messiah perfectly fulfilled.
.
According to the Messianic Jews Jesus  was a Torah observant, tallit wearing, synagogue attending, Sabbath and feast-keeping, kosher Jew who observed the 7 holy days too.. and yet this was never substantiated in the New Testament and why?
.
God told the Jews only  to celebrate the Biblical feasts FOREVER (Leviticus 23:21, 31, 41, Exodus 12:14),  yet this too next  was never substantiated in the New Testament and why?
.
Where in new Testament Scripture does Jesus or the Apostles  tell any Christians to observe the original, seventh day Sabbath (Gen 2:1-2) It does not and why not? They clearly did not observe it..
.
Messianic Jews do lie and  state that all of the Jewish believers in Jesus regulatory continued meeting at synagogue (or the Temple) for the  Sabbath. when clearly the Jews had  kicked them out of them…. so all of the Christians met on Sundays instead..  The Old Testament law was never intended by God to be the universal law for all people for all of time but only for the Jews till Jesus came..
Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.Hebrews 7:16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
.
Christians insist that “the law” was abolished. You won’t find anything in new testament Scripture to show that Torah was not abolished.  None of the Old Testament law is binding on Christians today. When Jesus died on the cross, He put an end to the Old Testament law (Romans 10:4;Galatians 3:23–25; Ephesians 2:15). In place of the Old Testament law, Christians are under the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2), which is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…and to love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39). If we obey those two commands, we will be fulfilling all that Christ requires of us: “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Matthew 22:40).
.
Does Scripture command us to celebrate the birth or resurrection of the Messiah via Christmas and Easter? Does it  command us not do do so? It does not. It is quite easy to spot a Judaizers as they strongly and falsely object to celebrating the birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ
.
Why is it that even the Messianic Jews rarely talk about Jesus directly? Most Jews are still not at all open to even consider any of the claims of Jesus Christ. One was defeated before he even began The truth has noting to do with it.. .The Jews hate Jesus Christ because they do not like being in a position of “weakness.” For one to come to Jesus Christ he has to admit that he has sinned and in need of a Saviour and therefore must repent and correct his conduct. The Jews find this absolutely abhorrent. The Chosen Jews do not want a Saviour. They do not believe they have ever sinned. They do not see any need to repent of anything. The Jews simply abhor the idea of getting down on their knees. Indeed every Jew who persists in his hatred of Jesus Christ, even the “new enemies” of the Cross: The Jews . “They are all the enemies of the Cross.” (Philippians 3) even because of their false pride , ” when push comes to shove the Jews will finally say, “I was born a Jew and I will die a Jew.” And so we see the Jews moving their negation of Jesus Christ into an outright warfare against Him. Their wishes will be answered in Hell.. as well as for all Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists etc., too..” “You have found yourselves unworthy of the Kingdom of Heaven” Those amongst them, that is, the rabbis & their admirers, are looking for a “messiah,” as they want him to be the conqueror of the all of the nations and also next to put them in charge of the world. There is no such thing as repentance in this their “messianic hope.” And this rabbinic “messianic hope” of conquering the Goyim, funnels down even to the secular Jews who give tacit submission to the rabbis, Bible” The most common reasons the Jews will not accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah is the same bad reasons Apostle Judas did not.. They falsely want a Judaic Messiah that will make Jews the center of the Universe on earth, ii is due to a false pride and the false idolistic Jewish culture worship For a Jew Moses is credited with writing the Torah and is the law giver and for them falsely Paul cannot trump that, which could be one reason why many a Jewish or Muslim person may not appreciate the Christians view of influential Paul.. Those Jews who too often also are only partially aware of the details of Christian teachings and the teachings of Paul falsely tend to see Paul as being at a main fault for creating the opposition to main Judaism.
.
They are not what they pretend to be.. Why did so many Jews, Messianic Jews still do hate Jesus Christ , the Church and persecute the Christians? They will not go to a Christian church falsely too. Some people have the impression that Jewish hostility for Christianity began only after Jews experienced persecution by Christians. Actually, Jewish hostility toward Jesus Christ and His church has been ongoing for the last 2000 years still. The main problem still is that the Jews hate the New Testament and the New People of God , the Christians, Apostle Paul too.. even Jesus in reality.. Jews today still have the mindset of Jesus’ enemies in the first century, The problem even with the Messianic Jews and most JEWS is that they are color blind.. they can only see things through a Jewish perspective.. not the reality.. I’ve never felt so HATED for being a real Christian in all my life like I have been by the false Jewish only lovers and Messianic Jews ! The early Christians were stoned and persecuted by Jews basically it was because of the Jews unbelief and fear their religion/tradition would be undermined, and that is still true today. But also Paul still said there is neither Greek nor Jew, slave nor free, male or female but all one on Christ Jesus.
.
Messianic Judaism is not just Christianity for Jews or even Christianity in a Jewish context. It is the modern equivalent of the “Judaizers” who plagued the New Testament in the time of the apostles. Today, as then, they attempt to bring both Gentile “proselytes” and Jews into bondage to law. Paul told Peter he “stood condemned” for allowing such Judaizers to again impose the bondage of circumcision. (Galatians 2) But many of today’s Messianic Judaizers want to do much more: impose not just mandatory circumcision on their followers but the entirety of the Old Testament law! http://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2013/12/15/they-are-not-what-they-pretend-to-be/
.
The false Jewish stumbling block is too often still Jesus Christ.. .. Messianic Jews who falsely claim that “I want to help the Christians in churches but my spirit cannot take it there much longer. And I’ll not have my daughter identifying with those who hate our Judaic heritage.” “You are NOT meant to stay in a Christian church on a permanent basis”. is STILL a false diversion.
.
To be fair, every Messianic Jew tends to falsely says they love Yeshua, Jews and they love Israel only and they falsely are still mimicking Jewish religious and identity behaviors, so very typically the Christians rightfully people accuse these Jewish people of error, racism and false partiality exclusionism and other unpleasant things, As it is typically like having your Jewish neighbor burst through your Christian Home front door, raid your fridge for food even , say that they’re moving in, and you have to “share” your stuff too the food, bed, clothes, toothbrush) with them forever…and you don’t have a say in the matter: Dream on.. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/…/4180i-also-do-know-them/
.
The Messianic Jews are the “wolves in the sheep’s clothing” (Mat 7:15) in a truer sense. And, they are the “Judaizers” Apostle Paul spoke of in Galatians 2:14. They were revived and came back with vengeance for the purpose of Zionism . Notice how they both encourage and guilt Christians into pouring money on Israel and promote trips to Israel, on top of billions of dollars of the U.S. tax money already being poured into her every year, while close to 90% of the people in that country are not even the true children of Israel
.
Zionist Israeli Messianic Jews even are still an abomination to God,.. Yeshua is NOT a Jew… Therefore, a “Jewish” messiah is a false messiah. Our true Messiah is a Judahite, from the Tribe of Judah, an Israelite, a Son of Shem, according to the flesh. But, He was not a Judean when He walked on earth; He did not live in Judea, where Jerusalem was located. He was born in Bethlehem, lived in Nazareth, and later Capernaum, Galilee. He was called the “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus did NOT practice Judaism, and When He returns, our Messiah will NOT look like a Jewish rabbi. Jews are part of the “Tares”; they look like us, but they are not like us. If you are a Messianic Jew or Israeli Arab Christian, any Israeli Christian who supports the government of Israel, which is inherently Zionist by its very history and nature, you are on the wrong side..
.
There are No Bible Verse Tells Us Messiah’s Name Is Yeshua I like to ask the Yeshua people the following: Would you please give us a Bible verse from the Hebrew Scriptures that tells us Messiah’s name is Yeshua? None have ever done so or ever will since Yeshua is never found in the OT or NT in reference to Messiah. Messiah is never identified by name in the Hebrew Old Testament Scriptures.
.
Regarding the Jewish Messianic ministries, we have learned that some of them emphasize the word “Yeshua” to such a degree that they say this is the name in which salvation is found and not Jesus. (Furthermore, many of them also believe in the heresy of eternal security!)
.
In an article entitled, We Call Him Yeshua it was written: One of the aspects of Messianic Judaism that stands out the most is the fact we usually refer to the Messiah as Yeshua instead of Jesus. Here is why.
.
Messianic Jews tend to refer to Messiah as Yeshua. Why do we do this? To put it simply, in calling Him Yeshua we are restoring to Him His Jewish identity. Yeshua was and is the name He was called when He walked on this Earth.
.
.
But what does Jesus’ Jewish identity have to do with anything? This is never magnified in the New Testament. Jesus is the Savior of all who will repent and submissively trust in him. Rev. 7 states there will be people in God’s kingdom from every tribe, people, language and nation all redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. Of what nationality Messiah was as He walked the earth is totally irrelevant. http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/yeshua.htm#yeshua or jesus
.
I too now have detailed on many places for the whole world to see how unchristlike, immoral too often the Messianic Jews behave . . yes those unacceptable persons, of bullies, abusers, control freaks, liars, slanderers so they will not get away with it.. and the New Covenant is not a continuation of the old TESTAMENT.. These Jews are next again going to repeat the history of ancient Israel, which by and large was a history of apostasy. The apostle Paul expressed his justified fear in this ominous prediction when he addressed the church elders of Ephesus:I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Acts 20:29-31

As to the book of Revelations most decent Bible scholars say the symbols in Revelation refer to events and places familiar to its intended audience – Firstly to the first century Christians in Asia Minor. The book, itself, states that its message is directed at the first century Christians in Asia Minor, and that the events it describes would happen “soon” (Revelation 1: 1-4, 1:9-11, 22:10)The city Babylon described in Revelation is called “Mystery Babylon.” The prophecy of Mystery Babylon is found in Revelation 17:3-5. “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
.
Verse 18 of the chapter tells us that the woman is a city. “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” In verse 1, we are told that the woman sits on many waters. Verse 15 explains the meaning of the waters. “And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Not only is this woman a city, but the city is apparently the headquarters over a vast international commerce, financial, political system. The Angel’s warning was that God’s people might hear His voice saying: “Come out of her, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Rev. 18:4. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/babylon-the-great-the-mother-of-harlots/

The Bible in several places states that God’s Word is FOREVER. “Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89). Does that mean all of God’s commandments and Covenants never change are forever? God himself never changes only. Jesus Christ the Word is  same, yesterday, today and forever.

Did you also know these truths

Concerning the basics of Christianity..
.
Now the Holy Spirit is gentle  but he will still tell you the truth..
.
How do you recognize if a person is a true Christian, or what is a Christian? “
.
IT SHOULD BE CLEARLY EVIDENT THAT MANY JEWS, EVEN MESSIANIC JEWS LIE ABOUT CHRISTIANITY, APOSTLE PAUL AND THE REASON IS THEIR FALSE DEMAND THAT CHRISTIANS KEEP ALL OF THE LAWS FOUND IN THE TORAH.  
.
A too common approach those interested in dismissing the gospel message of Jesus Christ is falsely trying to discredit personally the gospel messenger and his content and reflects their more eagerness to find supposed faults than to find the truth.. 
.
Exodus II  In what is considered by many to be the second major Jewish exodus (following the story of Passover),  more than 2 million Jews  have left the countries of the former Soviet Union shortly before and after its collapse, mainly for the United States, Germany,  Canada and Israel and all mainly for economic reasons, hoping to get richer. There are fewer than 200,000 self-identified Jews in Russia today.

JERUSALEM IS BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS .

ABOUT THE PERSONS WHO CANNOT SEE THE TRUTH

inspiring (3)
.
John 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
.
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
.
1 John 2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
.
SADLY WE MEET OFTEN IN REAL LIFE THE SERIOUSLY DEMON CONTROLLED PERSON WHO CANNOT SEE THE TRUTH, THEY CANNOT FACE IT, BUT CAN ONLY SEE AND HEAR WHAT THE DEVIL ALLOWS THEM..
.
Too many persons now they are trying to change others when they firstly do need to be changed.. While in reality God has made us all equal, and GAVE US ALL MOUTHS WE CAN SPEAK WITH, EARS TO LISTEN, it seems some people, in churches, on the net, elsewhere, they still wrongfully do think they are better than others, or want to dominate others, do try to give orders to others, do try to make rules for others that they too often themselves do not follow too, they are in fact still bullies.. and now why is that? and who do they think they are now that they are so special? Mere fools. They mostly have a hidden agenda, they are falsely seeking fame, power, control, a position of prestige, for they are immoral slave drivers trying to walk on the back of others . Many people have their own false images, scenarios, and refuse to see the truth of what is going on and in denial to the truth, these people they next even do falsely say anything, lies, slander included.. these people are the ones who need help. It is a COMMON fact of life, particularly among the young, inexperienced, really bad persons who really hate the truth or they cannot handle serious , heavy negative realities that false denial, ostrich approach is a serious part of their make up, and their related defense protection when they now cannot discredit the facts, the make a false personal attack on the writer, persons instead. A   person who makes a personal attack instead of dealing with the facts shows to all they are brain dead.
.
The Bible tells us that we RATHER do need to be led by the Holy Spirit
.
see for example Romans 8:
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
,
and Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Therefore, it must be possible for every one of us to discern the promptings and guidance of the Holy Spirit IF WE BECOME HOLY SPIRIT FILLED CHRISTIANS  https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/03/anointed/

A review of the  Four Voices ALL PEOPLE CAN Hear
.
“ There are actually four types of “voices” which we hear speaking to us, and it is important that we learn to distinguish each one so that we are able to discern the true voice of God:
.

The voice that is perhaps the most obvious is our own voice. In addition to our speaking voice, we also talk to ourselves inside our heads, we see images and pictures inside our heads, we have emotions and feelings and desires, and so on. Our minds tell us what we think, our wills tell us what we want, and our emotions tell us how we feel. The Bible refers to our minds, wills, and emotions as our “flesh nature ” . 

.
Another type of voice which often clamours for our false attention is the “voice” of other people. Sometimes people say things which are true, noble, and good, and sometimes people say things which are just the opposite. If you  listen and do  everything people tell you will next go crazy.

.

The third type of voice we often do encounter  is the “voice” of the devil. The devil has crafty ways of speaking to us which he has perfected over the millennia. He does not appear before us in a red, cloven-hoofed suit and speak out loud to us, he is much more subtle than that. What he does is to throw thoughts into our minds like flaming arrows, and he speaks to us through the worldly ideas and viewpoints that he has injected into other people. We must “extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one”

.

(Ephesians 6: 0 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;).

;

 If the devil cannot talk to you directly he will often use another persons to do so, even a false Christian,

.

The fourth and final type of voice we need to listen and to follow is the most important . It is the voice of God. God does  speak to us , He speaks to us  also in our spirits because that is where the Holy Spirit lives. Unfortunately, we tend to spend most of our thought life in our heads, in other words in “the mind of the flesh” (Romans 8:7, AMP), focused on the sensory world around us where our physical senses and our thoughts, feelings, desires, and emotions are constantly being bombarded and stimulated in worldly, carnal, fleshly ways. We tend to live on the shallow surface, so to speak, rarely venturing deeper where the Spirit of God lives within us. The result is that many of us do not know where our spirits are nor how to hear and be led by our Holy Spirit. Because of this we mostly do leave ourselves wide open to fall for the many deceptions of the devil.”

.

DIE TO SELF, LIVE FOR JESUS AND YOU CAN NEXT HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD CONTINUALLY.
.
“And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying, also].” (Luke 9:23, AMP)
.

Jesus was saying that we must follow His example  by denying ourselves and our own agendas, by disowning  ourselves, by forgetting ourselves and our own agendas, by losing sight of ourselves and our own agendas, by refusing ourselves and our own agendas, and by giving up ourselves and our own agendas! This is what it means to “take up [our] cross daily.” This is because our natural interests are contrary to the will of God, our natural feelings are contrary to the will of God, and our natural reasonings are contrary to the will of God. The cross is a place of death, which means that we should daily lose sight of ourselves (as in the verse above) in order to hear and obey God.

.

1  Corinthians 3: 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

.

Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

.

2 Corinthians 10: 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

.

Most Christians even are not even aware that one can in Jesus name command the devil to stop talking to you so you can next hear God’s own voice more clearly.

.

REMEMBER

  • the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it cannot submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot. So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, orbe acceptable to Him.” (Romans 8:7-8, AMP) The apostle Paul said that the mind of the flesh has carnal (worldly, sinful) thoughts and purposes, and that it is hostile to God and  cannot submit to God! Paul went on to say that if we are living according to our “flesh nature” then we cannot please God.
  • “The Lord knows the thoughts and reasonings of the [humanly] wise and recognizes how futile they are.” (1 Corinthians 3:20, AMP) God says that our human thoughts and reasonings are futile!
  • walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh [of human nature without God]. For the desires of the flesh are opposed to the [Holy] Spirit, and the[desires of the] Spirit are opposed to the flesh (godless human nature); for these are antagonistic to each other [continually withstanding and in conflict with each other]” (Galatians 5:16-17, AMP) The apostle Paul tells us that our “flesh” is our Godless human nature, and that our natural desires are opposed to the things of the Spirit and are continually in conflict with the Spirit. The solution, Paul says, is to walk and live habitually in the Spirit, always being responsive to and controlled by and guided by the Spirit within us. When we are busy analyzing things in our minds and trying to figure out the solutions to our problems and so on, it hinders us from hearing the Lord clearly.Now, obviously we need to use our minds and reasoning abilities throughout the day in order to do many of the things that we need to do, but the problem is that we tend to SOLELY use our reasoning abilities almost exclusively and never bother to consult God on any of the decisions that we make.
.
 OR DO YOU SAY “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.” (Galatians 2:20)
.

“Those who belong to Christ Jesus, the Messiah, have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires.” (Galatians 5:24, AMP)

.

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. … But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” (Colossians 3:5-10)

.

“Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.” (Galatians 5:24, NIV)

.

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)

.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” (Galatians 5:22-25)

.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

.

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you.” (James 4:7-8)

.
John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
.

Sadly too many Christians too are so busy working and also so worrying about how to change the others, but are they themselves firstly now even walking in the right path? 95 percent of Christians do not read the Bible or pray more than 5 minutes a day shows the basic Christian problem here  also. Many persons lie and say God basically was no longer involved in the things of this world, and/or that there was no’s such things as God personally speaking to us where we can hear his voice, where have a direct conversation what him, and there were no miracles of healing, no baptism of the Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit, no holy spirit gifts . Boy where they really wrong here too. Imagine now instead that you too even can actually hear God’s voice and his specific instructions to you instead of hearing your own voice and the lusts of the flesh or the Devil’s voice It is amazing that when want an immediate confirmation of God’s will in anywhere, I pick  up the phone (the Holy Bible) and next I Talk to him and Listen to Him as well while I am reading the Bible and he specially replies.

.

TOO  MANY PEOPLE FALSELY LIE AND SAY, CLAIM THEY HAVE FAITH IN GOD, BUT THE REALITY OF THAT CLAIM LIES IN THE ACTUAL DEGREE OF PERSONAL FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST ALONE NOW. https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/tag/god-speaks-hearing-gods-voice/

.

Many persons have a godly desire to serve the lord to become Apostles, Prophets pastors-teachers, evangelism, elders. The best way they can prepare themselves for this is firstly giving themselves all unto God and learning to hear God speaking to them.. Surprising ring how many professing Christian people do not still hear God personally speaking to them. Tragic that most so called Christians don’t hear the voice of God and are not really led by him at all. As they definitely don’t wait upon the Lord including Pentecostals.

.

(1 Sam 3:10 KJV) And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant hearth. 

http://sacredtruths.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/god-can-speak-directly-to-you/

.

Personal Humbleness is one of the basic prerequisite to allow God to personally speak to us. I know that many persons now tend to limit, cripple how God can speak to them, as only being through the Mind, through the Bible, only through others,  or through circumstances.. well I also know that the devil can speak to you and me that way now too.. or he devil can send you a supposedly wise person telling you what you should do , what to do. and  often rather making it a lot worse.  http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/01/21/god-speaks/
.

“I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.”” (John 5:19)

.

By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.” (John 5:30)

.

“So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am the one I claim to be and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me.”” (John 8:28)

.

“Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.” (John 14:10)

.
Can a Christian believer be demonized; i.e., possessed by a demon?  “Yes.” So a high percentage of sin among Christians is caused by demons. Note a person can be a believer in Jesus Christ, experience once the fullness of salvation, and still become next in bondage to Satan and demons.  It is quite simple even clean water can be contaminated when mixed with contaminated items.

UNDENIABLY IT SEEMS THAT MOST PEOPLE CAN SEE OTHER PEOPLE’s FAULTS, SINS, SHORTCOMINGS BUT FIRSTLY NOT THEIR OWN AND ON TOP OF THAT IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT THE FAULTS THEY SEE IN OTHERS IS THEIR OWN THAT THEY HAVE AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE SO CONSCIOUS OF THEM.

Let me be very clear that the devil and his demon followers will try to seduce you in your mind, in your sleep and if he here does not succeed he will send a person to you, one of his clear followers, another false angel of light now too, and to try to do this as well now they will do this by phone, email, personal visit and they also will ask you to do something wrong on their behalf and/or falsely ask you to take sides in a fight or a dispute

.

Too many persons here too are wrongfully these days adding or taking away from the word of God, the Bible and that is why there is so much disputes, different contradictory wrings in the Churches also these days.. of course this happens cause there will be always the wolves  now  amongst us as well, those followers of the devil who want to destroy the word of God too

Trying to be Jewish and a Christian is both absurd and demonic still

jesus-christs-309
While a Jew lover is a racist a Judaic Christian is an absurdity, an    oxymoron, (plural oxymora or oxymorons) is a figure of speech that juxtaposes elements that appear to be contradictory. Oxymora appear in a variety of contexts, including inadvertent errors (such as “ground pilot”) and literary oxymorons crafted to reveal a paradox. A  Judaic Christian, there is no such thing according to Jesus, the Apostle, the New Testament.
.
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the  doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus  Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the  simple.” -Romans 16:17-18 KJV  
 .
“Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it  necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all  delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out  for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the  only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” -Jude 1:3-4

.

One Trying to be Jewish and a Christian is both absurd and demonic still..

Now we see many professing Jews professing also to be Christians who falsely do not want to give up their Jewish religion, Nationalism even for Jesus Christ who advocate and look forward to a Jewish  dispensational era.

.

Apostle Paul, however, only speaks of two  dispensations. He speaks of the present dispensation that he saw as being given to him to present to us. The Age of Grace.  Ephesians 1:10 speaks of a future “dispensation of the fullness of times,” which is Christ’s millennial reign on earth.  This is Jesus and the Church which is  the end of the  foretold Davidic covenant and not rather the nation of Israel ruling the world, for Jesus will reign not as a King solely of Israel, but  a king of Kings, of all nations, of all of the world, this is the Messianic kingdom, emanating from the line of David with the Messiah Jesus  Christ as the Son of David . Like it or not, admit it or not.,

.

Carnal People not led., or filled with the holy spirit do not understand that the Word of God promises that it is Jesus’s throne, house, and kingdom that will be everlasting. There will be no end of His rule as there is no end of God. The throne on which Christ is now seated at the right hand of the Father has become already the “throne” of the Davidic covenant. The Old Testament readers would have understood the Davidic covenant to be fulfilled literally, in an earthly kingdom. But in reality the traditional covenant reformation theology says the Davidic covenant is completely fulfilled now in Christ, with his heavenly reign.

.

Dispensationalism falsely allows for a literal interpretation of the Davidic covenant by making a false future distinction between Israel and the Church, lying by saying that the Davidic covenant is to be fulfilled literally, during the millennium, in Israel only. Prior to 1830, even Darby himself now had believed in the traditional covenant reformation theology and historic interpretation of Revelation held by the Reformation. The Church is now the Israel. Prior to 1830, no one believed in a future Millennium Jewish Kingdom . The related false doctrine of a Jewish dispensationalisms by the demonic preacher John Nelson Darby and his followers are still from the pits of hell.. The core belief of dispensationalism is to distinguish “two purposes of God.” Where , the heavenly purpose is the Church, and the earthly purpose is Israel. This  false distinction of God’s different purposes between Israel and the Church is what makes one a false dispensationalist.

.

It’s important to remember that Scripture never mentions the two  contradictory  supposed  purposes of God.

,

God says that Israel is a “people called by My Name” (2nd Chronicles 7:14, 6:5-6, 1st Kings 8:16, Nehemiah 1:9, Isaiah 43:7, Jeremiah 7:12, 7:30, Acts 9:15). That name above all other names is still Jesus Christ. ” Genesis 32:22-32 tells us the story about Jacob receiving his new name Israel. Jacob wrestled with a man who is God. The man, of course, is Christ. He said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome.”

.

In each of the seven letters to the seven churches, Jesus says that those who overcome are given salvation. We overcome as we “work out [our] salvation with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12) “For it is God who works in [us] to will and to act according to his good purpose.”  (Philippians 2:12)  God does this only with those whom God chooses. God’s chosen people are the people who overcome. The people in the true Israel are only the chosen people. The people in the true Israel, the Church are the chosen people. Now. “There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called — one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all” (NIV Ephesians 4:4-“ If there is one body, one faith, and one baptism, there cannot be two purposes!

.

Christ works in us real Christians to will and to act according to his good purpose. Christ is our mediator. He struggles along side us. He is our advocate. Christ is our High King, and He is our High Priest. As King, he is the Anointed One (Messiah). The High King and the High Priest are our representatives to God. Christ is Israel. Christ is the head (or root) of Israel. The Church is the Bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:22-33). Israel is the Bride of Christ (Ezekiel 16). Thus the Church is Israel. Hosea 2:16 tells us about the future time when Israel will no longer call Christ ‘Master’, but will call him “Husband.” Revelation 21:2,9 tells us about the time after the millennium, after the new heaven and the new earth, when all who have overcome sin will be the Wife of Christ. This must include redeemed Jews and Gentiles from every age, and from every nation, tribe, people, and language.

.

The true Bride of Christ is Israel. Christ gives His Name to his Bride. We are a people called by His Name. We are Israel.Jesus said, “I am the vine and you are the branches” (John 15:1-5). This had to infuriate the Pharisees because in the Old Testament, the olive tree, the fig tree, and the grape vine are all symbolic of Israel (Judges 9:7-15, Habakkuk 3:17, Haggai 2:18-19). So those who abide in the vine are Israel.

.

If Christ’s words abide in you, then you are Israel. Paul used the symbolism of the vine in Romans 11:13:24. Those who are in the vine are in Israel. Those who are in the vine are in Christ. Christ is the root (or the head) of Israel. Romans 9:8 speaks of the “natural ( Jewish) children” as specifically not being God’s children. So they are not Israel. Paul refers to “natural branches” as apposed to branches from a “tree that is wild by nature.” In this context, Paul is comparing Jews with Gentiles with respect to the fact that the Promise of Christ came though the Jews, and that the Jews had been trained in God’s word from birth. The Gentiles were simply chosen by God’s Grace (favor) alone. But Paul points out that not all Israel are Israel (Romans 9:6). In other words, not all Jews, or professing Christians are truly born from above, saved, only the true Christians.

.

The Jews now were Israel only by their physical bloodline. Apostle Paul next is saying that their bloodline did not make them Israel. If they were not Israel, then they were not the recipients of the covenants, of the law, of the temple worship, and of the promises. On the contrary, it is all who are in Christ who are “adopted as sons” (Ephesians 1:5).

.

Note the term Evangelical or Dispensationalists are words never found in the Bible.. anointed is the word rather that should be placed here..
.
(Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. ..
.
The Evangelical Dispensationalists do also still tend to be trying to earn a great spot in heaven by their own good works, saving others, following the teaching of men, an evil spirit, and not the Holy Spirit rather..

 DISPENSATIONALISM IS ANOTHER FALSE  GOSPEL. 

.

(Isa 30:1 KJV) Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

.

I am aware of the fact John Darby and Cyrus Scofield have led many saints into such a mess, that it’s become the tool for a Brethren cult too! Some persons do preach, write out of their guilty, to compensate for the related emptiness they are feeling, while others write because they are ambitious, they write out of seeking fame, their seeking a place of prominence.. many are just lead by the devil too.

.

Too many persons here too are wrongfully these days adding or taking away from the word of God, the Bible and that is why there is so much disputes, different contradictory wrings in the Churches also these days.. of course this happens cause there will be always the wolves now amongst us as well, those followers of the devil who want to destroy the word of God too. It is not a coincident that too many Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the THE HOLY SPIRIT today as well, HIS Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO.   http://pbulow.tripod.com/good.html

.

I find it so absurd that these people still tend to not know what the Bible teaches, they believe their churches false teachings on healing, Zionism, Dispensationalism,  tithing etc.
.
 Dispensationalism is a system of theology that was first popularized by John Nelson Darby, 19th century British evangelist and forerunner of modern Christian fundamentalism.   The false  Scofield Reference Bible, written by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, popularized dispensationalism in the United States.  The world’s Jews must return to Israel for a dispensational interpretation of prophecy to be fulfilled. To facilitate that process, dispensationalists have been leading groups of pilgrims to Israel since Falwell’s first visit in order to win financial and political support for settlement activity.
.
John Nelson Darby (18 November 1800 – 29 April 1882) was an Anglo-Irish extremist Bible teacher, one of the influential figures among the original Plymouth Brethren and the founder of the Exclusive Brethren. He is considered to be the father of modern Dispensationalism and Futurism in the English vernacular. He produced a false translation of the Bible based on the Hebrew and Greek texts called The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby.

THE MAJOR ERRORS OF CHRISTIAN ZIONISM

The false interpretation of biblical literalism of Christian Zionism leads them to falsely to demonise Arabs and Palestinians as permanent Satanic enemies of the Jewish people… Christian Zionism a false teaching that focuses on the Jews in the land rather than an inclusive theology that centres on Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world consequently provides a theological endorsement for racial segregation, apartheid and war. This is diametrically opposed to the inclusive theology of justice, peace and reconciliation which lie at the heart of the new covenant, the New Testament, the teachings of Jesus Christ and his Apostles too.

BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS

1new-jerusalem-old_city

THE PEOPLE WHO HATE THE CHRISTIANS, CATHOLICS, AND AMERICANS FALSELY SUCH  AS THE JUDAIZERS FALSELY USE THIS BOOK, THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS FOR THEIR FALSE INTERPRETATIONS.

.

Now as to the book of Revelations most decent Bible scholars say the symbols in Revelation refer to events and places familiar to its intended audience – Firstly to the first century Christians in Asia Minor. The book, itself, states that its message is directed at the first century Christians in Asia Minor, and that the events it describes would happen “soon” (Revelation 1: 1-4, 1:9-11, 22:10). Face it  next even now there is much disagreement as to the actual interpretation of this book.

.

The Old testament prophecy of Jeremiah clearly stated that the original Babylon would be destroyed, never to be inhabited again. The physical city of Babylon was originally built by Nimrod after the flood. It was located on the Euphrates River, about 55 miles south of where Baghdad, Iraq stands today. The name Babylon came from the Tower of Babel that was constructed there. Babylon became a large city of global prominence around 1728 BC during the reign of Hammurabi. The glory years of Babylon were achieved under Nebuchadnezzar II (604-562 BC). The city declined during the reign of Belshazzar, and came to ruin when Xerxes, the Persian king, destroyed it in 478 BC. Thus, Jeremiah’s prophesied destruction of Babylon was accomplished, and, just as the prophecy said, it has never been inhabited to this day

.

The city Babylon described in Revelation is Jerusalem which is called   “Mystery Babylon.”  The prophecy of Mystery Babylon is found in Revelation 17:3-5.  “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

.

Verse 18 of the chapter tells us that the woman is a city. “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” In verse 1, we are told that the woman sits on many waters. Verse 15 explains the meaning of the waters. “And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Not only is this woman a city, but the city is apparently the headquarters over a vast international commerce, financial, political system. The Angel’s warning was that God’s people might hear His voice saying: “Come out of her, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Rev. 18:4. 

.

In Revelation 17:18, John sadly makes it clear that the “whore of Babylon” was the ancient capital city of Israel,Jerusalem. The Romans destroyed the city entirely in 70 AD An angel announces that the fall of Babylon is imminent, and warns the faithful to depart the city to escape the destruction. Those who have profited from their relationship with Babylon lament her passing. Do see Jesus own parallel words

.

Matthew 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Matthew 10: 23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

Matthew 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Luke 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Luke 21: 21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there into.

.

The  Bible is very clear in telling us that when the anitchist is finally revealed to the Jews and the world for what he really is, it will be in the future Jerusalem . The harlot is Jerusalem, and their international bankers and the people who represent the rulers of the city, the Pharisees, religious leaders, money changers, and modern day equivalents who rule the kings of the earth.

.

Rev. 12:3     And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

Rev. 17:3     So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Rev. 13:1     And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

.

Yes it  is important to note that both the Old and New Testaments speak of a “MYSTERIOUS  AND  TERRIBLE PERSONAGE” who shall be revealed in the “Last Times.” He is called by various names.

In The Old Testament

The Assyrian.”–Isaiah 10:5-6; 30:27-33.
King of Babylon.”–Isaiah 14:4.
Lucifer.”–Isaiah 14:12.
The Little Horn.”–Daniel 7:8; 8:9-12.
A King Of Fierce Countenance.”–Dan. 8:23.
The Prince That Shall Come.”–Dan. 9:26.
The Wilful King.”–Dan. 11:36.

In The New Testament  APOSTLE PAUL’S FOREVIEW.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for ‘that Day‘ (the Day of the Lord) shall not come except there come a ‘falling away first,’ and that ‘MAN OF SIN‘ be revealed. The

SON OF PERDITION,’

who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he As God sitteth in the Temple of God (the rebuilt Temple at Jerusalem), showing himself that he is God . . . For the

MYSTERY OF INIQUITY

doth already work (in Paul’s day); only He (the Holy Spirit) who now letteth (restraineth R. V.) will let (restrain), until He be taken out of the way. And then shall

THAT WICKED

be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit (breath) of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness (manifestation R. V.) of His Coming. Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signsand lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth (Christ) that they might be saved.” 2. Thess. 2:3-10.

The Man Of Sin.”–2. Thess. 2:3-8.
Son Of Perdition.”–2. Thess. 2:3-8.
That Wicked.”–2. Thess. 2:3-8.

ALSO
Antichrist.”–1. John 2:18.
The Beast.”–Rev. 13:1-2.

Jesus also made a prophetic reference to him. “I am come in my Father’s Name, and ye receive me not; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” John 5:43.

.

BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. The harlot is Jerusalem, with their international bankers and the people who represent the rulers of the city, the Pharisees, religious leaders, money changers, and modern day equivalents who rule the kings of the earth.  The Dragon is a symbol of the Money Power, nations under it’s influence..There undeniably still now are many Jewish  financial groups that hold very much power over certain nations and their population. So what groups, nations are these… what Vatican Bankers are also Jewish?

.

Index of  the proofs:
1. Jerusalem rules the nations through lending money.
2. Jerusalem kills the prophets and saints.
3. Jerusalem is the “great city” where Jesus was killed.
4. Jerusalem sits on 7 mountains.
5. Jerusalem is described as a whore in the Bible.
6. Jerusalem’s priests wore purple, red, precious stones, and gold.
7. Jerusalem drinks the cup of wrath.
8. Jerusalem’s lovers, the kings of the earth, turn on her to destroy her.
9. Jerusalem is called “Babylon” by Peter in 1 Peter 5:13

.

Ezekiel 16:33 describes how Jerusalem plays the harlot, oddly enough, by giving money to her lovers, which is “contrary” to how other women commit whoredoms:


Eze 16:31 In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;


Eze 16:32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!


Eze 16:33 They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.


Eze 16:34 And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.


Does the fact that the woman lends money to the nations prove that she rules them? Yes! Deuteronomy 15:6 clearly shows that by lending money, she rules the nations. Further proof that the lender rules over the borrower.


Proverbs 22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

.

Babylon, as a name for Jerusalem, is not unlike the comparison to other cities, such as as Sodom, Egypt, and Gomorrah; “spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt” Rev 11:8. (Isaiah 1:10; Jer. 23:14, Ezek. 16:44-56 all compare Jerusalem to Sodom. (also, Jesus in various NT scriptures, compared various Isralite cities to Sodom and Gomorrah by comparing judgment), Luke 10:12, Mark 6:11, Matthew 11:23-24, Matthew 10:15.)

.

Babylon also is described as being the fountain of rebellion against God and God’s Word which has spread throughout the whole world. Babylon also represents the Israel today that despises, rejects, and mocks Jesus and His Words.

.

On a Bible doctrinal basis, both the Jews and Arabs have one more thing in common (besides eschewing pork,  PRACTICING  AN  EYE  FOR  AN  EYE ): Both their religions also do deny that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he  God came in the flesh in the person of the Lord Jesus. Israel claims Jerusalem as its eternal capital. The Palestinians and the Arab world also do claim Jerusalem too. So did the Catholics.

.

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” (1 John 4:3 KJV)

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” (2 John 1:7 KJV)

And based on the authority of the Scriptures, both the mainline Jewish and Islamic faiths of today (and all other world religions and apostate “Christian” cults and sects who deny the physical resurrection of Jesus and His Deity) are all under that spirit of antichrist.

.

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

.
Israel is described as a harlot in many texts of the Hebrew Scriptures: Isa. 1:21, Ezek 16, 23, Isaiah 57, Jeremiah 2-3 and Hosea 2

.

Isaiah 47 is a striking parallel passage, with 3 key elements repeated: She calls herself a queen, not a widow, and will see her destruction in one day.

Isaiah 47:7 You said, ‘I will continue forever— the eternal queen! ‘ But you did not consider these things or reflect on what might happen. 8 “Now then, listen, you wanton creature, lounging in your security and saying to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me. I will never be a widow or suffer the loss of children.’ 9 Both of these will overtake you in a moment, on a single day: loss of children and widowhood. They will come upon you in full measure, in spite of your many sorceries and all your potent spells.

Revelation 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

.

In that day Jerusalem will be a “great city” in this present evil world and a global center of religious worship, commerce and political power. It will be a corrupt place where religious authorities (much like the Pharisees and Sanhedrin of olden days) rule over and suppress the poor and persecute the truly righteous.

.

The woman is wearing red and purple, with a cup of gold in hand. The Israelite priests wear red and purple, and used cups of gold in the temple worship.

.

Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Rev 18:16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

God commanded that the priests’ vestments be made with purple and scarlet yarn (Ex. 28:4-8, 15, 33, 39:1-8, 24, 29).


Exodus 25:29 And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.


Dan 5:2 Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein.

Dan 5:3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them

.

And once again the sins of Jerusalem and the world will cause the Lord God to rise up and send prophets to Jerusalem, preaching repentance and that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand; the very same message of John the Baptist and Elijah (see Matthew 17:10-11 & Mark 9:11-12). Two of those coming prophets are killed by the rulers of the city:

.

“And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” (Revelation 11:8 KJV)

.

The Jerusalem of the future, in this present evil world system, is likened unto Sodom and Egypt, which tells you of the level of depravity and hardship being endured in the great city at that future time.

.

In Old Testament prophecy, cities like Jerusalem are spoken of as women, and usually in less than flattering terms when the Lord God is angry with them:

.

“Zion spreadeth forth her hands, and there is none to comfort her: the LORD hath commanded concerning Jacob, that his adversaries should be round about him: Jerusalem is as a menstruous woman among them.” (Lamentations 1:17 KJV)

.

Yes, Rome is a city that sits on seven hills, but so does the cities of Istanbul, Turkey (formerly Constantinople) and Jerusalem (and for that matter, so does Cincinnati, Ohio). HOWEVER, Jerusalem is specifically referred to as the “great city” in the book of Revelation, not Rome..

.

“And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” (Revelation 11:8 KJV)

…and is proclaimed by the Scriptures to be the true whore of Babylon:

“And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.” (Revelation 16:19 KJV)

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” (Revelation 17:5 KJV)

.

The Bible tells us that Jerusalem, not Rome, is the true “whore” of Revelation. In the future Jerusalem, the City of Peace will be the city of a great false peace. It will be a center of power much like ancient Babylon and will once again go a whoring as she did so many times in Old Testament days. At this future time Israel will have abandoned its current democratic form of government and will once again be a theocratic monarchy, ruled by kings and ruling with the kings of the earth. Now, I know that you may find this to be shocking and hard to believe. After all, we all think of Jerusalem as the heart of the holy land and the place where the Lord Jesus Christ will someday reign (and He will), but not before He avenges Himself on the city that rejected the Lamb of God and nailed Him to a tree outside the city walls.

.

How do we know for sure that Jerusalem is the “woman” spoken of? Consider this undeniable truth: In the Bible God says that Babylon, the mother of harlots, is responsible for shedding specific holy blood:

.

“And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.” (Revelation 18:24 KJV)

And the only city on the face of the Earth that meets those criteria, according to the Bible, is the city of Jerusalem:

“Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.” (Luke 13:33 KJV)

.

And that is the verse of Scripture that nails the woman’s identity. Jesus Himself said this. And Jesus, who was also a prophet, was slain at Jerusalem. In fact, search your Bible and you will find that EVERY true prophet of the Lord God who perished did so at Jerusalem.

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! (Luke 13:34 KJV)

.

The Pharisees of Jerusalem killed Stephen who was the first of “the martyrs of Jesus”. Any other interpretation of who the woman is, if it does not include the Jewish religious leaders in the time of Jesus, including the Jewish religious leaders who killed the Old Testament prophets (Rev 18:24), is therefore incorrect.

Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.


Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Stephen, the first Christian martyr, fingers the council at Jerusalem as the murderers of the prophets, and they were so angry they killed Stephen, too:


Act 7:52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:


Jesus speaks harsh words to the leaders of Jerusalem, saying they are worse than harlots, and also says that “Jeursalem kills the prophets”:


Mat 21:31 “…Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.


Mat 21:32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.


Mat 23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,


Mat 23:30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.


Mat 23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.


Mat 23:32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.


Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?


Mat 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:


Mat 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.


Mat 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.


Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!


Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.


Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Luk 13:31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.


Luk 13:32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.


Luk 13:33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.


Luk 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!


Luk 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

The woman also drinks the cup of wrath.

Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.


Isai 51:17 Rouse yourself! Rouse yourself! Arise, O Jerusalem, You who have drunk from the Lord’s hand the cup of His anger; The chalice of reeling you have drained to the dregs.

Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.


Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,


Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

The kings of the earth (the horns of the beast) (Rev 17:12), who the woman rules (Rev 17:18), will turn on the woman and destroy her. Ezekiel, in chapter 16, and Jeremiah chapter 4, say the same thing about Jerusalem and Israel.

Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.


Eze 16:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,


Eze 16:2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, …


Eze 16:37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.


Eze 16:38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.


Eze 16:39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.


Eze 16:40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.


Eze 16:41 And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.

Jer 4:1 If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove. …


Jer 4:30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.


Jer 4:31 For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.

.

Apostle Peter uses the word “Babylon” to describe Jerusalem, where he lived, in a greeting at the end of his first epistle.

1 Peter 5:13 The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son.

.
Peter was in Jerusalem, writing from Jerusalem, living with his son Marcus in Jerusalem, not Babylon.

.
Galatians 1:18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.


Acts 8:14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

At the time Peter wrote 1 Peter, the literal city of Old Babylon was in ruins, and uninhabited. Therefore, “babylon” was a name for Jerusalem.

.

The desolation of the harlot:
When will the ten kings of the earth (the horns of the beast) turn on the woman and destroy her? (Rev 17:16). These ten kings are of the eighth beast which is destroyed by Jesus. This eighth beast reigns for the final half of the 7 year tribulation; 42 months, or 3.5 years, or “time, times and half a time.”

.

Rev 17:13 These [ten kings] have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.


Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

.

Thus, the ten kings will turn on the woman at the time they come to power to give their power to the beast, right at the middle of the tribulation, to set up that kingdom of the antiichrist.

,
Also, as is indicated in Daniel 9:27, the antichrist breaks the covenant (with Israel), leaving her desolate, in the middle of the tribulation.

.

Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.


Matt 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

.

Isaiah describes the covenant with the antiichrist as a covenant with “death” or “hell”, and identifies who makes this covenant, which is Israel, or the Jewish leaders who make the treaty in the time of the end, who are the great harlot.


Isaiah 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

.
The antichrist, or beast, in the last 3.5 years of the tribulation, goes about setting up his own religious system of worship, the worship of himself as God.

.
2 Thess 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Many commentaries take great pains to say that the woman of Rev 12 is not the same as the woman of Rev 17-18. Yet, both are identified with Israel. The woman in Revelation 12 is the faithful Christians, of the New Israel. The Whore of Babylon is not Rome, which persecuted the Catholic Church, but instead is the apostate, worldly Jerusalem which has still rejected the Messiah and persecutes the early and present Christians.

.

A false, mostly Jewish view is that the whore is “Apostate Christianity” in general, including the Catholic Church. That’s a very large number of people considering that there are over 1 Billion professing Christians on the planet. Now this view is wrong because Apostate Christianity does not meet all the stated criteria in the Book of Revelation, Book of Daniel, and it does not at all control the kings of the earth; and certainly not through lending money to them but the Jews undeniably do.

.

Is America Mystery Babylon the Great? Is America, the present most dominant and influential nation of the end times, is really not found in Bible prophecy and does not meet all the stated criteria in the Book of Revelation, Book of Daniel, and it does not at all control the kings of the earth; and certainly not through lending money to them but the Jews undeniably do.  https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2014/01/02/in-end-time-prophecies-america-is-not-specifically-named/

.

It is also my prayer that you will prayerfully under the direction, teaching of the Holy Spirit search the Scriptures, and rightly-divide them, to see all of what things are true and honest.

.

The New Heaven and the New Earth John sees a new heaven and earth; the old order is no more. A new holy city, the new Jerusalem, comes down from heaven. God will now dwell among people. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.” (NRSV)

.
With evil destroyed and the earth purified, God will now dwell among the faithful whose names are written in the book of life.

.

The New Jerusalem The new holy city is described in all its splendor. There is no need for a temple because God and Christ will be there. All the effects of sin have been erased from earth. The new state of the earth is a paradise like the Garden of Eden, and God will dwell among the people.

The Kingdom of Heaven is God’s True Israel

walk-in-faith-now-3

“The Apostle Peter taught that Christians, the entire body of Christ, are now God’s chosen people. “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once you were no people but now you are God’s people; once you have not received mercy but now you have received mercy.”

(1 Peter 2:9, RSV.)

Many devoted Christians hope the end of these “last days” is near. Seeking signs to prove Jesus’ physical return is imminent, their attention has been fixed upon the Republic of Israel since its founding on May 14, 1948, when this new Israeli state brought to an end nearly 2,000 years of Jewish statelessness. A new look at Old Testament prophecy has resulted.

The hasty conclusion that twentieth century Israel is a restoration of Old Testament covenanted Israel is causing many Christians to watch Middle Eastern political events and speculate on their end-time meanings. Too many quickly forget the major Old Testament prophets foresaw a “New Covenant” and not the restoration of the “Old Covenant” (Jeremiah 31:31 ff.)

Renewed emphasis on the Old Testament and some of its prophetic books has resulted in large scale neglect of New Covenant theology. Old Testament study about the vanished covenanted Israel has replaced New Testament teachings about God’s true Israel. Incorrectly equating the new Israeli republic with the Old Testament Israel is the result.

This has brought a return of the Jewish heresy which plagued Paul’s ministry and the early church. That heresy teaches that Jews are, in some way, more important to God than any other people. The idea of Jewish “chosen-ness” even after Jesus implies that the Old Covenant, or parts of it, is still in effect.  Strange new teachings abound that belittle the Gospel by contemptuously calling it “Replacement Theology.”   

Emphasizing Old Testament teachings of the Jew’s spiritual exclusiveness and superiority in God’s eyes misses how the New Covenant, reported in the New Testament, changed that doctrine. The natural byproduct of BC doctrines is that today’s Israeli state is felt to be the same as BC Israel. Articulate teachers press this belief from every direction by every media. 

Strong emotions stemming from end-time hopes can numb theological logic which should be warning that something is amiss. Everyone should be asking: “If Jews are so special to God, and Israel, because of the Jews, is the most important place on earth, what’s with being a Christian? What happened to the Christian’s first place with God?”

Clear reasoning should tell us that current Jewish/Israel/Zionist teachings relegate Christians to second class citizenship in God’s plan of action! 

Logic shows that such Zionist theories yield two covenants, with the old one of the Jews having priority to the New Covenant of Jesus.  That implies the New Testament is a fraud – which is what Jews assert. Two covenants can’t be if we are to read and believe the New Testament.

The Christian message is about only one covenant, the one Jesus brought with His blood on the cross. If Jesus’ Covenant is the one and only, then any teaching contrary to that is heretical. Christians do not accept two covenants, one of faith and the other of race.  Jews do not accept Jesus’ Covenant of freely given faith and grace.  Jews, in our times, insist non-Jews, are outside of God’s favor and are “Goyim “- heretics – who can never be “chosen” people of God for lacking a Jewish mother.

This is a real problem in our times – too many people teaching too many end-time theories, all starting from the existence of the Israeli state. Using the prophetic books of the Old Testament, while ignoring the New Testament message, yields incorrect conclusions.

From this overabundance of speculative prophecy, soothsaying and much pure fiction, comes many contradictions. Resulting confusion, debate, and division within the body of Christ dampens our love for one another. Because of these differences, we experience an erosion of our peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. In short, we are arguing about unproven nonessentials when we should be sharing love and agreeing on New Covenant essentials. Our calling is to be peacemakers, not debaters.

Being an imitator of Christ is different than being a commentator on the implications of international political and economic events. Christians are required to be experts on the words of Jesus rather than those of some soon-to-pass prognosticator who promotes peculiar prophecies.

Too often we are found studying the latest paperback book’s opinions on the meaning of the most recent event in the Middle East, instead of using our time to study the words of Jesus, the “red letters” of the New Testament.

Granting the importance of Jesus’ return, how do we study about it? How do we find the truth about our continuing hope for his final coming? We must commit ourselves to finding the truth, in spite of our fondest hopes and most pleasing opinions. Truth, regardless of its comfort, or lack of it, must be our primary goal. God requires truthfulness from us. This requirement directs us in a single-minded search for it, regardless of the consequences.  We cannot be guilty of passing on hear-say opinions obtained from unknown people.

To satisfy ourselves, we need to do our own search for the end-time truth. We need to know we have found the truth, and not simply blindly followed another’s untested opinions.

The primary trustworthy source of information is Jesus’ actual words. These are the red letter sayings of Jesus in the New Testament. Because He is our Teacher and Master, we always look to Him first. Before accepting any spiritual teaching or opinion, we must find His words,

We must test each idea by asking, “What did Jesus say?” When we look to His words we usually find the answer we need with little difficulty.

Measuring all ideas against Jesus’ words gives us a foundation of understanding to which we can add more information from history. So, the source of historical records, for a Christian, is first the Bible and then secular records.

In studying the Bible, Christians place primary importance on the New Testament, so we study it in an orderly way: Jesus’ words first, then the balance of the New Testament in the order in which it is preserved, and finally the Old Testament in its preserved order. This prevents our taking scripture out of context with resulting invented doctrines, too often contrary to God’s order of thought and transmission.

Last, we look to reliable secular historical records about our religion. These records are important because they give information on events which occurred after the Bible was completed. Studying all such available records, after the Bible, usually reveals full historical truth.

To find the truth about God’s true Israel and its relation to the end-time, we must apply this test and search all these sources.

History’s record testifies that before the formation of the twentieth century Israeli state, all Christian theology taught that God’s new Israel was the spiritual Kingdom of God, neither worldly nor political.  History also proves that all end time prophecies during the past 2,000 years have been wrong – except Jesus’ predictions of the fall of Jerusalem and the Temple, his resurrection, his spiritual return to Earth, and the coming of the Holy Spirit to make Christians “temples” to replace the destroyed Temple in Jerusalem.

Before the cross, Israel was both a political and a spiritual kingdom in a geographical location. After the cross it became God’s spiritual kingdom, not a worldly place or power (John 18:36), with all believers in Christ as citizens. Simply, it was not a place but a spiritual condition. It was the condition of being born again through belief in Jesus.

Martin Luther explained this traditional view in his classic commentary on Paul’s letter to the Galatians. Discussing Galatians 6:16, Luther wrote the following passage.

“When Paul adds: ‘And upon the Israel of God,’ he touches the false apostles and the Jews who gloried and bragged that they were the people of God, that they had the law and the promises. So it is as if Paul said: ‘They are the Israel of God, those with faithful Abraham who believe in the promises of God offered in Christ, whether they be Jews or Gentiles, and not they which are the begotten of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob after the flesh.’ But this entire matter was handled before in the third chapter.” (See Galatians 3:7 ff, especially 3:26-29.)

Without question, Jesus said His kingdom of the New Covenant was not a worldly or political entity. In the red letters of John 18:36 (RSV) Jesus explained, “My kingship is not of this world; if my kingship was of this world, my servants would fight, that I might not be handed over to the Jews.”

Next, it is clear that entry into God’s kingdom does not come through a blood relationship to Abraham, but through faith in Jesus. Checking Jesus’ words again, we see He said the Jews were satanic and not children of Abraham.

The record of this is Jesus’ statement, “If you were Abraham’s children you would do what Abraham did, but now you seek to kill me… You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires.” (John 8:31-57, esp. 39-44 RSV.)

Paul, himself a Jew, fully knew the Jewish misunderstanding about salvation through race rather than through faith. He gave us the famous Galatians chapter three explanation, secured by verses 26-29. (RSV.)

“For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one n Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.”

This shows that the Old Covenant, with Jews the covenanted people, was replaced by the New Covenant of faith through Jesus Christ. The new holy nation (Kingdom of God; Kingdom of Heaven) is made up of all who are one in Christ. Spiritual Israel has replaced the earlier worldly Israel since the cross and Jesus’ resurrection.  When Jesus died on the cross, the old Covenant died with him (Matthew 27:50,51). When he arose, the new covenant arose with him.

The theology of this change is more formally explained in Hebrews, chapters seven through ten, (especially 8:6,7,13 and 10:9,10). Replacement of the Old Covenant means that with Jesus, God abolishes the first covenant to establish the second or New Covenant.  (Hebrews 8:7 & 13.)

Clearly, there is only one covenant, the New Covenant of Jesus Christ. Since the Old Covenant is gone, vanished away, there are no covenantalpromises or prophesies remaining in it for the Jews and a Jewish Israel. These now belong to the new Israel of God by faith.

The impossibility of two covenants, one Christian and one for Jews, is obvious. Jesus said He is the way, and no one can come to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). This excluded a Jewish covenant given through race with promises and prophecies that substitutes for Jesus’ covenant.

To do an overkill on this point, we may review the fourth chapter of Romans and the second chapter of Peter’s first letter.

In the Roman letter Paul assures us, in the promise to Abraham and all his descendants, that they should inherit the world, did not come through the law but through the “righteousness of faith.” (Romans 4:13, RSV.)

The Apostle Peter taught the True Israel truth in another way. Christians, the entire body of Christ, are now God’s chosen people. “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once you were no people but now you are God’s people; once you have not received mercy but now you have received mercy.” (I Peter 2:9, RSV.)

The conclusion is that Christians, the Body of Christ, are now God’s holy nation, the true Israel under the Gospel, since Jesus’ salvation. Christians are the inheritors of Abraham’s promises through faith in Christ The old Israel and the Old Covenant to the Jews ceased and vanished. That covenant ended when Jesus died on the cross. Promises and prophesies to BC Israel now belong totally to those under the New Covenant. Those closed for Israel of the Jews on the first Easter Sunday.

Christian faith is in the shed blood of Jesus purchasing our New Covenant with God at his cross. By grace, both Jew and non-Jew can come into the new Israel of God through faith, not by race or by works.

Heresy is to teach that a Jew, by virtue of his race (flesh), is still a chosen one of God through the Old Covenant. The same heresy claims that a collection of Jews (even agnostics, atheists, and secularists) who inhabit the political Israeli state is still a chosen people under the Old Covenant, receiving the promises and prophesies of that covenant just because they are born Jews and live in a nation calling itself “Israel.” 

Also countering this heresy is the historical disproof of claims about the Israeli republic. Contemporary Israel is NOT the first Jewish state since the Old Testament prophecies were written, it is the third.

All end-time prophecies arising out of the Israeli state in relation to events in the Middle East rest on a common mistake. That mistake is the belief that the 1948 restoration of Israel is the first and only restoration since the Old Testament times. This is taught by all speculative end-time prophets, who believed restoration has not occurred before and that it signifies something very unique.

History contradicts this belief. The fact is that there were two independent Israeli monarchies, with temples, in the inter-testament period between the Old and New Testament writings. Contemporary Israel is outside the Torah because is not a monarchy and does not have the necessary Temple.

The first kingdom was reestablished after the Maccabean revolt occurring about 152 BC.  Israel won its independence from the Seleucids, a “tribe” (nation) from the north (Syria) in that year after a long and bloody struggle.

Jewish patriots recaptured and cleansed the temple, an event commemorated by the ‘Festival of Lights’. The restored monarchy, known as the Hasmonaean Dynasty, gave a period of peace and prosperity from 152-65 BC It had a fully restored priesthood, and temple worship, according to the law. The monarchy ended in civil war, with two Hasmonaean heirs struggling for the throne.

Roman interest in the area began about 65 BC Herod the Great neutralized Roman influence through diplomacy and entered the conflict as a third contender for the throne. He won the civil war in 37 BC and became king.  This was the second kingdom.

Herod’s reign began with independence from Rome, even though Israel later became a puppet state by his death in 4 AD. That later servitude of Israel obscures the fact that Herod was first independent. Thus, in the beginning under Herod’s rule, Israel was allied with, but not subject to, Roman rule.Therefore, Herod’s independent monarchy was the second time Israel was an independent nation between the close of the Old Testament and 1948.

Lacking the Temple, the ark, a priestly hierarchy, regular blood sacrifices, and the annual Day of Atonement, modern Israel lacks what the Torah requires. Israel lost all of these religious necessities in 70 AD, when Titus’ Roman troops sacked Jerusalem. Modern Israel can not become Old Testament, covenanted, Israel unless the religious requirements of the law are met. Since it has not, and cannot,  met those requirements, it is not Biblical Israel and is not a beneficiary of Old Testament prophecies and promises.  In fact, Old Covenant (Torah) Judaism does not exist.  It has vanished and is replaced by the New Covenant as Jeremiah prophesied. (Jeremiah 31:31-34)

Any restoration of covenanted Israel would subvert Jesus’ exclusive New Covenant. Israel can never be in a Torah relationship with God, and under His anointment, without blood atonement. It cannot have atonement without blood sacrifices. It cannot have blood sacrifices without its temple and priests, using the prescribed religious artifacts which remain lost and unrecoverable.

A restoration of ancient Israel’s Torah religion would necessarily be a competitor religion to Christianity in the same way Islam, Hinduism, and other Pagan religions based on works contradict Jesus’ New Covenant that is based on faith. and freely  given grace.  It would deny and replace Jesus and his Gospel.

The new Israel, God’s true Israel, a holy nation, is in fact the fellowship of true followers of Jesus, where ever they are. This body of Christ, the whole collection of Christians, received atonement through the one final sacrifice of Jesus’ shed blood on the cross. Jesus remains the high priest, the only mediator between man and God.

Through Jesus’ final work, anyone can become a temple by receiving the Holy Spirit. Our body, not a building, becomes the temple of the Holy Spirit through the baptism given by Jesus’ sacrificial blood and free grace. This is the New Covenant which replaces that vanished Old Covenant.  It is the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Heaven.

Consequently, all claims that the Republic of Israel is a restoration of Old Testament Israel fail. Israel is not Torah Israel since it is neither a monarchy nor does it have a functioning temple. It is not spiritual Israel because the body of Christ is God’s true spiritual Israel. Finally, it is the third restoration, and not the first as is mistakenly asserted.

Since the Israeli state is not Biblical Israel, all speculations and conclusions from Middle East events have no end-time significance. Any concept which starts in error also ends in error. A bad tree cannot yield good fruit, according to Jesus. (Matthew 7:18.)

Knowing we cannot rest our end-time hopes on the Israeli state and the political events of the Middle East, we must find a surer barometer. In our hope for the “soon” coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, we want to know the signs to be inspected.

The directions which we can follow are simple and easy to find in the New Testament. We need only search the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles on this subject. We do not search the Old Covenant prophets.

First, we look to Jesus. What did He say? He never bothered to speak on His second coming until directly questioned about it. When asked, He answered fully in the twenty-fourth chapter of Matthew. He said there must be catastrophic climatic and political tribulations before He comes. But,even before that, all nations must be made disciples of Jesus by the preaching and teaching of His Gospel. (Matthew 28:18-20, esp. 28:19; also Mark 13:3-36, and Luke 21:7:36.)

Paul helped to clarify end-time signs by writing to the Thessalonians. There he said Jesus would not come again until the “son of perdition . . . takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God”. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12, esp. 3 & 4, RSV.) Since there is no temple in Jerusalem, this event is not in sight.

A more complete list of “the things which shall be” is written in John’s Revelation 4:1-22:5. Few can agree on the exact meanings of these complex allegories. More debate is expended on Revelation than any other scripture. Debate and divisiveness are unnecessary regardless of interpretations. The meaning of Revelation is unknown and no two people have ever agreed on it.  Its purpose is totally misunderstood.  (See http://www.revelation-101.org/)

We can always go back to the basic Source for understanding. What did Jesus say? What did He command us to do for Him before the end can come?

“Go therefore and make disciples (matheteuo) of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and Lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.” (Matthew 28:19 RSV, and NKJV, Strong, Vines, Dakes, etc.)

We have our work cut out for us if we want to see Jesus come in the flesh anytime soon. At least half of the world’s population has not even heard Jesus’ name, much less been converted and discipled. We will never fulfill this commandment while debating and speculating on Middle East events.

What shall we do? What is our next move? What would Jesus have us do? More speculation and debate or more Jesus? 

We might start by thinking how we might convince 1.2 billion Muslims, 1 billion Hindus, 1+ billion Pagans following other spiritual concepts, the innumerable agnostics, Jews, and lost “System Christians”  to God’s True Israel.   What ideas can you offer?

It appears that in the 2,000 years since Jesus sacrifice, of the 6.4 inhabitants of Earth only 400, 000,000 are in God’s True Israel.  The score is 6 billion out of the Kingdom, 400 million in it. What can be done to change that?

Then pray to be entered into the Kingdom of Heaven.

“Father, help me trust you with my life, and receive Jesus’ Holy Spirit baptism.   I ask you take over my life, be my guide and protector.  Help me totally trust you for all my needs.  Put into my mind and heart your Holy Spirit.  Rebuild me so I can walk with you and be a blameless member of your Kingdom of Heaven, your True Israel.  Amen””

John 6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.

The Jewish power grab.. every one of the Jews, Judas the Betrayer especially had falsely expected of the coming restoration of Kingdom f Israel by Jesus Christ but it never happened and never will ……. Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power .

Jesus made obsolete the Old testament, Old Covenant, old Israel and introduced the New Covenant, the new Church, the New Israel. Speaking of Christians the now chosen only.. John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

1 Corinthians 1
27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

Ephesians 1
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

2 Thessalonians 2
13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

2 Timothy 2
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.:

1 Peter 2
4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Revelation 17
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.t:

Revelation 3
12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Revelation 21
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband .( Christians)

Acts 26:
1 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself:
2 I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before thee touching all the things whereof I am accused of the Jews:
3 Especially because I know thee to be expert in all customs and questions which are among the Jews: wherefore I beseech thee to hear me patiently.
4 My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews;
5 Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
6 And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:
7 Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope’s sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.
8 Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?
9 I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
10 Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.
11 And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.
12 Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,
13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
20 But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
21 For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me.
22 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
23 That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.

.

Acts 3:12 When Peter saw this, he said to them: “Men of Israel, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? Acts 5:11-13 Great fear seized the whole church and all who heard about these events.

.

Note the term Church is consistently used in the New Testament to describe the Assembly of Christians followers, believers…

.

Specific Words used for the Church in the New Testament

1 The Greek term ἐκκλησία, which is transliterated as “ecclesia”,  generally meant an “assembly”, but in most English translations of the New Testament is usually translated as “church”. This word is the Greek words kaleo (to call), with the prefix ek (out). Thus, the word means “the called out ones.” This term appears in two verses of the Gospel of Matthew, twenty-four verses of the Acts of the Apostles, fifty-eight verses of the Pauline Epistles (including the earliest instances of its use in relation to a Christian body), two verses of the Letter to the Hebrews, one verse of the Epistle of James, three verses of the Third Epistle of John, and nineteen verses of the Book of Revelation. In total, ἐκκλησία appears in the New Testament text 114 times, although not every instance is a technical reference to the church. In the New Testament, the term ἐκκλησία is used for local communities as well as in a universal sense to mean all believers. The Christian Church is a term solely used to refer to the whole group of people belonging to the Christian religion throughout history. And the “Church” capitalized does not refer to a building. Now the exact English word “church” does not come from ekklesia but from the word kuriakon, which means “dedicated to the Lord.” This word was commonly used to refer to a holy place or temple. Since believers have been united with Christ through spiritual baptism, they are sometimes corporately referred to as the body of Christ. (Rom. l2:4-5; 1 Cor. l2:11,13,l8,27; Col. l:l8; Eph. 5:30) The idea seems to be that the group of Christians in the world constitute the physical representation of Christ on earth. It is also a metaphor which demonstrates the interdependence of members in the church, while at the same time demonstrating their diversity from one another. (Rom. 12:4; 1 Cor. 12:14-17)

2 The Temple of God (1 Cor. 3:l6; Eph. 2:2l,22; 1 Pet. 2:5).

3 The Jerusalem From Above or The Heavenly Jerusalem (Gal. 4:26; Heb. l2:22). Both of these terms (as well as “temple”) illustrate how the Old Testament notions of outward sanctuary have been replaced with the literal dwelling of God in his people.

4 Bride of Christ or Christ’s Betrothed (Eph. 5:25-32; 2 Cor. 11:2). These titles refer to the love and loyalty existing between Christ and believers.

.
What constitutes the local church? where “. . . two or three have gathered together in my name (Jesus Christ) . . . ” (Mt. l8:20) This is Christ’s version of what is necessary to have a local church.

.

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

.

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. http://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/son-of-man-is-a-title-that-jesus-used-of-himself/

God’s has preserved the Old Testament scriptures that they might never be lost. He did do this  also for the Jews’ sake ,  as the Jewish scriptures are able to make the Jewish people“wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus”(1Tm 3:15-17).

.

Psalms 48:1-2 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

.

  Hebrews 11:8-10 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Tithing

Tithing- Definition
The Tithe-  A Jewish only commandment- A tenth part of one’s annual income contributed voluntarily or due as an obligatory  tax, partially  for the support of the poor = clergy = synagogue
.
TOO MANY CHRISTIAN CHURCHES, DENOMINATIONS NOW do now differ very significantly from EACH OTHER  including the Mennonites, Brethren, Baptists, Catholics, Anglican, Presbyterian.  Some even   preach the whole or full Gospel of Jesus Christ; Jesus as Savior, Healer, Deliverer, Provider, coming King, Baptizer of the Holy Ghosts, Sanctifier, Giver of gifts too… and yet most churches still are not more spiritual over the others, mainly because the leadership has watered down the requirements of what it takes to be a Christian, a church member .. apparently you can often buy a membership by tithing, giving ten percent of your income to the local church.. https://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/11/02/for-without-me-ye-can-do-nothing/
 .

God does not need your money, he wants all of you rather.  Apostle Paul clearly made the decision to follow Jesus alone in all that he did, living by faith now too. Paul did not preach tithing at all.  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/01/09/and-who-do-you-follow-jesus-or/

.

Now my God has already promised to supply all your needs by Jesus Christ already so why do you want to even tithe firstly? what are your real motives in doing so?

.

IT IS NOT YOUR TITHING THAT WILL BLESS YOU FIRSTLY BUT IT IS GOD HIMSELF.. (Prov 10:22 KJV) The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

.

(Neh 10:38 KJV) And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house.
.
The Biblical reality also now that only 10 percent of the collected tithe in the Old testament every three years went directly to the storehouse?
.
Also, every third year, the Israelite was required to store his tithe in his own town to feed the fatherless, aliens, and widows as required by the Lord. This was the tithe of the poor. (ma’aser ani)(Deuteronomy 14:22-29, 26:12-15) (Amos 4:4-5)
.
The tithe was also paid directly to the storehouse only every 3rd year? and the other two years the thither himself enjoyed the tithes himself by now also personally feasting on it? Did you ever hear your PAOC preacher tell you that and why not? Obviously he wanted your share of the tithe.
.
And why now have any of the today’s   pastors not even mentioned ALL OF these Biblical verses, truths too in all honesty? rather they like you to believe that then and not all of the tithes was to be given to the local church for them wrongfully to do as they want.. which was not so at all AND NOT in the Old or New Testament. Even the Apostles were accountable, transparent to the church elders in all they did.

.

Generally, mostly it is the insecure people in God, because of their still unresolved guilt,  who falsely have an emphasis on forced evangelism, and they falsely do support enforced, forced tithing, keeping the ten commandments  because they do not have enough of a relationship with God for HIM to supply all of their needs for their ministry. It should be noted that Jesus himself and  the Original apostles had never  requested tithing, and clearly they had not relied on tithing for all of their missionary endeavours. They trusted God for their leading and their needs to be met  Jesus himself and  the Original apostles financial request lay solely in helping the poor Christians. These same people generally are falsely trying to find God’s favour not by faith in Jesus Christ but falsely by their religious good efforts as they clearly still do not know what faith in God means..
.

 Romans 3 : 3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
.
Hebrews 11.6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

.

 Pastors do you have one, one New Testament verse that confirms Tithing has been mandated for the New Testament Church by God?  I am not aware of one, If you do which one is it?

 .
Malachi 3:8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
 .
3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
tithe
Genesis 14
20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
 .
Leviticus 27
30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.
 .
31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
 .
Note:
    • The request for Tithe  money by almost all churches, denominations is merely a theft of God’s money, misuse of it, as it is not EVEN Collected or Dispensed in the Biblical Manner too
    • Malachi  itself was written to the Old Testament Priests who were stealing the tithe.
    • 1/7 of the tithe was to be given to the local poor people as well something generally not done today too.
    • Tithing to the Jerusalem Temple directly was done only once every three years   Amos 4:4 Come to Bethel, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years:
    • Tithing is not compulsory but Voluntary   2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
Also
    •  Tithing is only  an Old Testament concept, specifically the Mosaic law applicable only to Jews required that the Israelites give one-tenth of the produce of their land and livestock, the tithe, to support the Levitical priesthood (Leviticus 27:30-33)as well as the poor persons.
    • It is the Levites who were  to do the work at the tent of meeting and bear the responsibility for any offenses they commit against it. This was a long ordinance for the generations to come till the temple was destroyed by God. They received no inheritance among the Israelites. Instead, I gave to the Levites as their inheritance the tithes that the Israelites present as an offering to the Lord.Numbers 18:21-24
    • Note specficially the people who collected a tithe were not allowed to own any real estate, tangible property too.
    • There is no doubt that these commands of the various tithes were solely directed to the Israelites – God’s past chosen people in the ancient world. Contrary to popular opinion, the offerings were not solely used to support the Levites, who were a tribe of priests and temple workers, but they were also used to provide feasting for one’s own family and to help the poor .. 
    • Note the book of Malachi in the Old Testament was written specially to the Jewish priests to stop stealing the tithe money.
    • Only a fool would not know that almost all of the false Bible verses given for the justifications for the applications of tithing today are taken out of context as well.
    • Tithing in most churches is being used as a false excuse to appropriate falsely God’s money, and to abuse it, steal it, as it is so often the case .
    • Do Christians Have to Tithe? No!  none of the Christians in the  Church are  required to tithe. 
    • Tithing has never been obligatory for any non Jewish person and has never been mandated in the New Testament..
    • Jesus’ work initiated a “new covenant” — a new relationship with God that effectively replaced (or fulfilled) the sacrificial system practiced by the Israelites in the Old Testament. As Christians, we no longer use priests and other religious systems as a way to access the power of God. Instead, Jesus has become our Great High Priest (Hebrews 4:14). He has granted us access to God through His own work and sacrifice, and through His Holy Spirit.  Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.  Romans 5:1-2
    • One of the most obvious, clear evidence of a carnal, unspiritual church today is one that demands the tithing, and this is true of any evangelical , Baptist, Pentecostal churches or any of the cults, Mormons now as well.
    •  Most pastors who  do ask people to give money obviously do not just have a lack of financial transparency but also they  do not give any 1/7, any portion it to the poor people.
    • Giving is an expression of worship which is why we are told that it must be done willingly and without any enforcement, bragging, record keeping, compulsion (2 Corinthians 9:7).  
    • Today, many Christians falsely donate a tithe, or ten percent of their income, to support the tangible property,maintenance  of the church, building and the pastoral support and his family needs and it is rarely used to help any local poor persons even or for  direct evangelicalism. The tithe in the Old  Testament was never used to pay for the maintenance of the temple.
    • Now it is true that  “tithing” existed and was practiced in the Old Testament  and  a  set portion of these tithes  were also to be given to the local poor persons  too. In fact at least 19 % of these Biblical commanded tithes were to be given  directly to the local poor persons.
    • Christian tithing is a misnomer because Christians are under no obligation to fulfill the command to tithe as given to the Israelites  as part of the Mosaic Law .  
    • The New Testament nowhere commands, or even recommends, that Christians submit to a legalistic tithe system. Paul states that believers should set aside a portion of their income as an offering, but this is not a tithe (1 Corinthians 16:1-2), to help the local poor persons and to support the Christian workers, work.
    • Now it is true that tithing existed for the Jews only  and was practiced in the Old Testament and a set portion of these tithes were also to be given to the local poor persons too. In fact at least 19 % of these Biblical commanded tithes were to be given directly to the local poor persons. Too Many Churches today falsely do rob God by asking for just the tithe giving and next also wrongfully use it to pay the mortgage, building expenses.
    • Ministering to the saints does not mean solely religious empire building, paying of building funds, and the physical maintenance costs. You do not need a church building to practice tithing and ministering to the saints.(Deu 16:17 KJV) Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.
    • God has designed the churches also should help the poor, help one another, other churches, and that can next also include any other ministries that God will, will lead you to give to now as well.. a real ministry is where someone actually looks after the good physical and spiritual welfare of the flock of God, not just in words, but with real visible , good deeds.  (Mat 7:20 KJV) Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Mat 7:21 KJV) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

.

Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do. Galatians 2:10  

.

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

.

Read the Bible and stop listening to the lies, distortions of mere men still.  Most people still have personally never even firstly had studied, read what the Bible actually says on Tithing nor have they been taught by the Holy Spirit firstly, not even many preachers.. They are mere parrots reciting what others have told them too often rather.. Desiring to be teachers they know nothing about what they still write even.. Anyone obviously can preach but obviously are  not even led by the Holy Spirit.. most are pretenders, imposters it seems.. and since when is a Jewish commandment applicable now for any Christians, and what other Jewish commandments do you falsely also follow.  https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/what-the-bible-actually-says-on-tithing/

How would the churches, pastors and their families sustain themselves if it weren’t for the tithing ? Start to live by faith in God to provide and get Love offerings.. as a pastor of a small church I never once took an offering or asked for donations..“The Bible clearly says we are to help the local poor people in our own churches, neighborhood willingly. 1 Tim 5:8 “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” 2 Cor 9:7 “Every man according as he purposed in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver.” (Rom 15:26 KJV) For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.Our responsibility is mainly two fold we donate freely as we want firstly to the local poor Christian persons in our own local churches… and secondly we need to insure that the donations is entrusted for distribution directly to the reliable persons, so that it actually reaches the poor persons.. (1 Cor 4:2 KJV) “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. “ Since we all do know the temptation to steal abounds even in the Church, religious organizations.It still seems most of the donated money never reaches the destinations still.There is still the obligation of all poor persons to pray in faith to directly for their needs and to expect God to meet their needs and not man.  It was interesting that Rev George Mueller was able to raise millions of dollars by donation, without once sharing the need publicly too.

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the  doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus  Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the  simple.” -Romans 16:17-18 KJV    “But in vain do they worship me, teaching as their teachings commandments of men. For, leaving the commandment of God, ye hold what is delivered by men to keep”, Mark 7: 7-8. Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. (1 Tim 1:7 KJV)  For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. (Heb 5:12 KJV)

The false Brethren wresting of Holy Scriptures to support a line of teaching contrary to the actual written word of God is still also unacceptable. The Brethren oft repeated assertion that the present voice of the Holy Spirit is located in the utterance of men is an affront to the Holy Spirit http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/09/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus-2/

.

I have absolutely no doubt that many Canadian, American evangelical pastors included now steal, are falsely lying, unacceptably misrepresenting the Biblical truth, EVEN FALSELY STILL pressurizing, twisting the arms of members and adherents to regularly tithe to their storehouse, to the Pastor’s benefit, so the pastor can live high on the hog now.

(1 Thess 2:2 KJV) But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention. 3 For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile: 4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 5 For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloak of covetousness; God is witness: 6 Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ. 7 But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:

Romans 2
17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,

23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?

Romans 3
27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

.

Psalm 1:1  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.4  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.6  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.   https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/the-not-so-secret/

Me I am an old Christian and now I know my Bible personally better so I do not accept these much too many lies being spread from the pulpit.. Too many preachers too are (1 Tim 4:2 KJV) Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

.

Just cause a person tithes, does not mean he is spiritual, more likely he is still even coming tax evasion, cheating, steal, abusing in my personal witness and experiences even in the PAOC churches now. (Psa 112:9 KJV) He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

.

50% of Sermons Are Not Biblical “Preaching the Gospel is not acceptable to living it. All pastors still do need to read the Bible for one hour a day at least, and pray for one hour a day at least. Almost 80 % of them do not. At least 50 percent of Church and TV, Internet sermons thus are unbiblical because most pastors do not use or read the Bible itself. Great, big Church pastors even steal their sermons from others as I have witnessed firsthand too. I interviewed personally 45 evangelical pastors in one city, Calgary Alberta, and none of them even used the Bible in their counseling ministry with their members and adherents. We have too many impostors, hirelings in the Ministry, bad persons not directly called by God to minister and that is why they also do cheat, lie, steal, commit adultery, tax evasions and abuse others, slander as well.  http://thenonconformer.blogspot.ca/2006/08/truths_08.html

.

(Jer 6:27 KJV) I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way. 28 They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters. 29 The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away. 30 Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath rejected them.

.

SO IF YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE IN TITHING THEN YOU MUST BELIEVE IN HELPING THE LOCAL POOR PEOPLE WITH IT. AND WE CAN ALL SEE THE EVIDENCE IF IT TOO.

.

Do note also that like today in social aid, the people receiving social  aid they now cannot own major tangible property, real estate, so any of   the people, priests  receiving the old testament tithes they also could not own any major tangible, real estate  properties.. but today the false priest, pastors who are demanding on receiving tithes they falsely also do want to still own a home… to enjoy the monetary rewards of both.. they are still equivalent of welfare cheats!!!!
