True facts about the FALSE Dispensationalists

,

Now when one becomes a Zionist, a cult, he thus undeniably leaves behind whatever God-driven faith he may have had before. Angry Evangelicals the churchgoers who become Zionists, tend to be all hostile too hostile. The many self-identified Messianic Jews tend to be even more vociferous in their outrage. As many are exposing the unchristian nature of their war making for Israel. But not all Jews support Israel’s war making, endorsement of the theft of Palestinian land, and the occupation of 4 million people.. Evangelicals need to reexamine their behavior as they never use Jesus ‘s words in their arguments not surprisingly.. Zionism is a political movement and a business for the Israelis. And when they hear that Zionism is being exposed and discredited, it results in massive hostility toward the others. Christian Zionism is a mental disease. A full blown case leaves almost no room for debate with logic or facts. Christian Zionists act in a very un-Christ like way in their treatment of people who do not go along with them. Most Christian Zionist pastors usually put Israel ahead of Jesus. Real Christians rightfully do challenge all the false claims of a historical connection between the tribe of Abraham 3000 years ago and the political state of Israel today. Israel’s land rights claim to the promised land , the Land of the Philistines results only from Christian Zionism’s alterations of the Old Testament books, by which they have cast God into the role of a real estate agent passing out perpetual title to the Middle East The traditional Protestant churches are plenty large and influential enough to constitute a fatal threat to Christian Zionism. If the churches founded on the teaching of Reformers reawaken and expose it to their members, all will be over for Israel’s broad grass roots support in the USA. Now the only verses referenced or quoted are from the Old Testament. This is no surprise for the New Testament has much to say in direct response to the many false doctrines of Christian Zionism. Christian Zionist is not Christianity, because Jesus is left outside. It is time to expose Christian Zionism as a war cult, and explain to the entire Christian community that there is not a grain of Christ-following At the very root of the war problem are churches that will not stand for peace.

The Evangelicals biggest errors, faults are-
1: They tend to falsely make man, Jews as the center of the Universe and not Jesus Christ
2: They are Holy Spirit ignorant clearly, do not understand the work, person of the Holy Spirit
3: They support the false Dispensation theology, Zionism, are a cult
4: they are New Testament ignorant

One of their biggest errors ever when dealing with the future of Israel is this idea that Gog and Magog is Russia and Germany from Ezekiel 38-39. On the contrary it has nothing whatsoever to do with either, nor does it have anything to do with Israel either past, present or future all due to an unbelievable error of biblical interpretation!!! They needs to seriously wake up and gets its interpretation of scripture correct.
.

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 2:10,11 And 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  the wall, behold a door And 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 women weeping 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 god in 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 own tradition. 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? .

I am surprised, rather shocked as to how many people even Christian ones do think we should be nice, and kind to the bad persons and still.. nothing doing!

PS:

Now to me it only makes sense that the New Testament was written in Greek. Think of who Paul was: the “Apostle to the Gentiles”. Obviously he was writing to Greek speaking people, so he would write to them in Greek. There are more reasons, but this is an obvious one. I have run into a new reason why some people dispute the notion that Jesus spoke Aramaic. It has to do with the passion among some Muslims for an Aramaic-speaking Jesus. Aramaic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew, Arabic, and similar languages. Only during the time of the Assyrian Empire (8th century BC), Aramaic became used throughout the Ancient Near East as the language of diplomacy not at the time of Jesus here on earth During and before the time of Jesus, there wasn’t just one version of Aramaic being used in Judea and beyond. Even many grave inscriptions around Jerusalem at the time of Jesus are not in Aramaic, not in Hebrew but in Greek.. Muslims falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Aramaic as a support for the truth of Islam.
.
Jews falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Hebrew as a support for the truth of Judaism A few scholars believe that people in Nazareth spoke Hebrew as their primary language. This is possible, but unlikely. Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) So what evidence do we have that Jesus spoke Hebrew? We do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew As one who believes about Jesus all the things orthodox Christians do, it would not impact my faith one jot or tittle if Jesus spoke Hebrew rather than Aramaic, or Greek rather than Hebrew.but the truth is Jesus spoke Greek still..Now, you don’t have to spend the next several years learning ancient languages because English KJV translation of the biblical text is very much reliable it was based on the Tyndale translation of the Greek too..The question of Jesus’ primary language is settled if weknewwhat people in Nazareth in the first decades of the first century A.D. were speaking and the Romans made it clear.. Greek or Latin only.. and we have no evidence for the common use of Hebrew in Nazareth and the surrounding region of Galilee.it is worth nothing that Greek was commonly used in certain strata of Galilean society. This began when Alexander the Great conquered the region in 332 B.C. Under his rule, and under the rule of those who followed him (the Ptolemies and the Seleucids), Greek was the language of government and commerce. The Romans used Latin for official communication, but Greek was the common language of the Empire. In fact, Nazareth was a short walk fromSepphoris, one of the major cities of Galilee, where Greek would have been the everyday language of the marketplace.The earliest manuscripts of the New Testament Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – are written in Greek.
.
Yes there is overwhelming evidence, both historical and linguistic that shows that the New testament texts were never originally written in Hebrew, as some Jews claim but they are known liars.. Show us this original Hebrew transcript of Matthew.. none exists..None.. all is in Greek.. and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek Not one.. The New Testament, however, was written in Greek. This seems strange, since you might think it would be either Hebrew or Aramaic. However, Greek was the language of scholarship during the years of the composition of the New Testament from 50 to 100 AD. The fact is that many Jews could not even read Hebrew anymore, and this disturbed the Jewish leaders a lot! So, around 300 BC a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Greek was undertaken, and it was completed around 200 BC.
.
Gradually this Greek translation of the Old Testament, called the Septuagint, was widely accepted and was even used in many synagogues. It also became a wonderful missionary tool for the early Christians, for now the Greeks could read God’s Word in their own tongue. So again the New Testament authors wrote in Greek. They did not, however, use really high-class or classical Greek, but a very common and everyday type of Greek. For many years some scholars ridiculed the Greek of the New Testament because many of its words were strange to those who read the writings of the great Greek classical authors such as Plato and Aristotle. But later many records were uncovered of ordinary people, and amazingly there were the same common terms used in everyday speech! The ridicule dried up accordingly. The prominent first century Roman historian Josephus was a Jew himself who wrote in Greek.. it should be understood that there is a long history of “Hellenism” (Greek culture/influence) among the Jewish people, both in ancient Alexandria as well as in the Promised Land itself.Ossuariesdating from the Second Temple period indicate Greek artwork and Greek versions of Hebrew names In Biblical Archaeological Review , Pieter W. Van Der Horst writes, “One of the most surprising facts about funerary inscriptions [extant from ancient Palestine dating from 300 B.C. to 500 A.D] is that most of them are in Greek – approximately 70 percent; about 12 percent are in Latin; and only 18 percent are in Hebrew or Aramaic.” Furthermore, since the time of Alexander the Great (c. 330 B.C), many of the Jewish High Priests had become Hellenists ; which led to the rejection of the Temple by theEsseneCommunity and eventually to the later Maccabean revolts.
.
Even the Dead Sea Scrolls include Greek texts among the Hebrew and Aramaic. ; So it’s clear that Hellenistic culture and Greek language were pervasive influences in Israel both before, during, and after the time when Jesus lived in ancient Israel and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek all of the ancient textual evidence for the New Testament is in Koine Greek, and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek.

The New Testament is by far the best-attested (and best preserved) literature of antiquity, with manuscript evidence dating back to the first century. ; For example, the Magdalen Fragments are written in a style of Koine Greek that was current in the 1st Century A.D. during the very lives of the apostles. Indeed, ancient papyrus expertCarstenThiedeand other scholars regard certain fragments from the Gospel of Matthew to be an eyewitness account. We have some anecdotal evidence of a gospel that underlies the others gospel accounts, but it is clear — both from history and from the textual evidence we have – that the Holy Spirit chose to use Koine (i.e., “common”) Greek as the language to reach out to the world. This is true, incidentally, of the Torah andNakh, which were also translated into Koine Greek (i.e., the Septuagint, or LXX). Many of the oldest Biblical fragments among the Dead Sea Scrolls correspond more closely with the LXX than with the (later) Masoretic text, and indeed we have evidence of Koine Greek manuscripts that were discovered in the Qumran caves themselves…
.
Now when Jesus went into the synagogue and was handed the scroll of Isaiahthat thatscroll was written in Greek?and the the New Testament Gospels do include non-Greek words in the text (spelled with Greek letters). And some of these words are Aramaic ?So, while Jesus’ use of them may reflect his Aramaic speech, we can’t even be 100% sure of this. And we do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew ..
.
Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) The so-called “biblical case” for the Hebrew speaking Jesus rests mainly on one verse in, not in the Gospels, but in Acts of the Apostles. You absurdilycannot make a major statement with one fact, one verse.. when you have a whole Greek New testament.. one cannot use this as proof that he always spoke Hebrew, or mainly spoke Hebrew, or even spoke Hebrew in any other circumstance. In no other place does the New Testament tell us that Jesus spoke Hebrew. The fact that the Gospels are written in Greek shows that most of the earliest Christians, including some who followed Jesus during his earthly ministry, knew Greek and used it often, perhaps as their first language. Many Jewish writings from the era of Jesus were written in Greek, including works such as 2 Maccabees and 1 Esdras. Other Hebrew writings were being translated into Greek in Jerusalem (the book of Esther, for example, in 114 B.C.). Speaking of Jerusalem, scholars have found some ninety Greek inscriptions onossuaries(boxes for bones) that date to around the time of Jesus and were found in or around Jerusalem.
.
Ever since Alexander the Great conquered Judea in 332 B.C., Greek had been the language of government and, increasingly, commerce and scholarship. Though Aramaic continued to be spoken by many, Greek grew in its popularity and influence. In the time of Jesus, well-educated Jews, mainly those of the upper classes, would have known and used Greek. So would those who were involved in trade or government Get wise and learn the truth. Jesus was not handed the dead sea scrolls.. he read from the Greek Scroll Bible. The presence and pervasiveness of Greek in Judea is demonstrated by a discovery in theNahalHever region of the Judean Desert near the Dead Sea. In a cave, a scroll was found that contains substantial portions of the minor prophets in Greek. The so-calledNahalHever Minor Prophets Scroll, dated around the time of Jesus, shows the influence and popularity of Greek, even among highly religious Jew..
.
In Matthew 8:5-13, for example, Jesus entered into dialogue with a Roman centurion. The centurion almost certainly spoke in Greek. And, as Matthew tells the story, he and Jesus spoke directly, without a translator. The same could be said about Jesus’ conversation with Pontius Pilate prior to his crucifixion (Matthew 27:11-14; John 18:33-38). If Jesus knew enough Greek to converse with a Roman centurion and a Roman governor, where did he learn it? at Home and in school.. Jesus’ hometown was a short walk fromSepphoris, which was a major city and one in which Greek was spoken.
.
Christianity is a new Religion that is not an updated Judaism, or a revised Judaism.. Most Messianic Jews too now are also still going to hell.. and they are firstly not willing to give up all to follow Jesus . For some Jesus must have spoken Hebrew to some people, otherwise somehow his mission as the Messiah would have been deficient. Some were worried that if Jesus spoke Greek he did not care for the Jews basically.. No one even knows what the Jewish Culture was like at the time of Jesus since the Romans burned all the Jewish books and Library and none exist today thus.. People who are hung up on a Jewish scripture still need the Holy Spirit to explain it anyway and most people do not have him, Jews especially.. .Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify your perversions of the reality.. There is no existing evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been . Why are they falsely so argumentative and hung up on a Hebrew Jesus? when most of the Jews have rejected him anyway and are mostly going to hell..
.
Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify your perversions of the reality.. There is no existing evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been and anyone has yet had failed to prove it too.. The fact that Jesus may have spoken Greek may help us to think differently about him and his ministry. For many years it was common to envision Jesus as growing up in the countryside of Galilee, far removed from multi-cultural hodge-podge of the Roman Empire. But this idealized view of the rustic Jesus is far from the truth. Though he grew up in a small town, he was not at all cut off from the broader Roman world. In fact Jesus grew up with ample exposure to Greco-Roman language, culture, commerce, politics, religion, and philosophy. When he eventually entered Jerusalem to confront the Roman and Jewish authorities there – and to give his life in the process – Jesus was no naive country bumpkin making his first trip to the big city. Rather he was well aware of powers and perils he faced, and he faced these knowing, as he ultimately said to Pontius Pilate (in Greek, I believe), “My kingdom is not from this world” (John 18:36). Given the Holy Spirit, not just excellence of English translations of the Bible by translators who have mastered all of the relevant languages, it’s not necessary for the ordinary Christian to learn Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic in order to understand the teaching of Jesus .and his teachings.. In fact too many Hebrew , Aramaic and Greek speaking persons are still very ungodly persons

JEWS IN REALITY ARE NO LONGER GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE

Jesus-Cross-passion4

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So what is the future hope of the nation of Israel today?

israel

  So what is the future hope of the nation of  Israel today? Only Jesus..
.
Christians are the future in God’s time tables, and they today are solely God’s people. Galatians 3:28-29 says there are no Jews in Christ…

Galatians 3:28-29, “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. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”  
.
Many even first-century Jews could identify with the phrase “kingdom of God.” made by Jesus Christ.. They the Jews In this cultural longing for national restoration, eagerly wanted God to send them a leader who would throw off Roman rule and make Judea an independent nation again—a chosen, superior nation of righteousness, glory and blessings, a nation everyone would be attracted to. There was a variety of speculations about how this would be done. The concept was attractive, although it was not Biblical… mere human expectation… But Jesus’ in his earthly ministry,   He told his disciples to preach “The kingdom of heaven has come near” and to heal the sick (Matt. 10:7; cf. Luke 10:9, 11). Not what the Jews wanted to hear..  But the kingdom most Jewish people hoped for did not happen. The Jewish nation was not restored. Even worse, the temple was rather even destroyed with all it’s records too, and the Jews were scattered. dispersed, exiled rather but why? . Even now, 2000 years later, these past  Jewish hopes are still unfulfilled. Was Jesus even still predicting a national Jewish   kingdom? Rather, the popular hopes and speculations were wrong. Jesus’ kingdom was not like the popular expectation—as we might guess from the fact that many Jews wanted to kill him. His kingdom was “not of this world” (John 18:36).
.
“Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand.” John the Baptist and Jesus proclaimed the nearness of God’s kingdom (Matthew 3:2; 4:17; Mark 1:15). A literal translation is “has come near.” The long-awaited rule of God was near.
.
When he talked about the “kingdom of God,” Jesus used a phrase the people knew, but he was giving it a different meaning. He told Nicodemus that God’s kingdom was invisible to most people (John 3:3)—to understand it or experience it, a person must be renewed by God’s Spirit (verse 6). The kingdom of God was a spiritual kingdom, not a civil and physical organization. Jesus rather indicated that  His kingdom was. is already functioning. After casting out demons, Jesus said, “If I cast out demons by the Spirit of God [and he did], then the kingdom of heaven has come to you” (Matt. 12:28; Luke 11:20). “ Jesus told a parable about a man who went to a foreign country to receive a kingdom (Luke 19:12). He went not to receive the territory and bring it back with him. Rather, he went to receive the authority to rule. He then returned to the territory and had to exert that authority. The Jews were well acquainted with a historical example: Herod had gone to Rome, seeking to be appointed king. He was so appointed, but when he returned to Judea he had to raise an army and conquer the territory. What he was given in Rome was not the territory, but the permission to be its king. The Greek word basileia is focused on authority, not on territory. “
.
When Jesus talked about the kingdom, he didn’t emphasize its physical blessings or clarify its chronology. He focused instead on how people get in that kingdom, and how they live. We enter the kingdom when we respond to God with faith and allegiance, when we come under his authority; we then seek to live in way that is reflective of that kingdom. The kingdom is here, he said, and the proof is in the exorcisms. The power of God is invading the domain of evil, expelling the powers of evil. This proof continues in the church today, because the church is doing even greater works than Jesus did (John 14:12). We can also say, “If we cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is working here.” The kingdom of God, by the power of the Holy Spirit, is continuing to demonstrate its power over the kingdom of Satan – and that power is shown not just in expelling evil spirits, but in many other activities that undo what the devil has done.Satan still exerts some influence, but he has been defeated, and “the prince of this world now stands condemned” (John 16:11). He has been partially restrained — tied up (Mark 3:27).
.
Jesus overcame Satan’s world (John 16:33), and with God’s help we are overcoming it, too (1 John 5:4). But not everyone does. In this age, the kingdom contains both good and bad, both wheat and tares (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43, 47-50; 24:45-51; 25:1-12, 14-30). Satan still has influence; we still look forward to a world and a time in which God’s will is done perfectly rather than partially. In Mark 10:15, Jesus indicates that the kingdom is something we must receive in some way, apparently in this life:  “Anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Jesus Christ is in the church today, too, and just as the kingdom was present in the ministry of Jesus, it is present in the ministry of his church.
In Mark 10, a man wanted to inherit eternal life, and Jesus said he should keep the commandments (verses 17-19). This was apparently just a teaser of an answer, because Jesus soon added another command: He told him to give up all his possessions for the heavenly treasure (verse 21). Jesus commented to the disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” (verse 23). The disciples asked, “Who then can be saved?” (verse 26).
.
In this passage, and in its parallel (Luke 18:18-30), we see several phrases used to indicate the same thing: receive the kingdom, inherit eternal life, have treasure in heaven, enter the kingdom, be saved. When Jesus said, “follow me” (v. 21), he was using another phrase to indicate the same thing: We enter the kingdom by orienting our life to Jesus – and it is not possible for us to do it – but it is possible with God. He makes the impossible possible.
.
In Luke 12:31-34, Jesus also indicates that several concepts are similar: seeking the kingdom, being given the kingdom, having a heavenly treasure, giving up trust in physical possessions. We seek God’s kingdom by responding to what Jesus taught, and that is also the way that we enter the kingdom. (We are talking about a metaphor of allegiance here, rather than physical movement to a new territory.) God’s kingdom is the realm in which God’s will is done. In Luke 21:28, 30, the kingdom is parallel to redemption. In Acts 20:21, 24-25, 32, we learn that Paul preached the gospel of the kingdom, and he preached the gospel of God’s grace, repentance and faith.
.
The kingdom is closely connected with eternal life—the kingdom would not be worth preaching if we couldn’t be part of it, and it wouldn’t make sense to risk our lives for it in this age unless we were promised life in an eternal age. We can enter the kingdom only through faith, repentance and grace, so those are part of any message about God’s kingdom. Salvation is a present-tense reality as well as a promise of future blessings. Acts 28:23, 29, 31 tells us that Paul preached not only the kingdom but also about Jesus and salvation.
.
The King is among us; his spiritual power is in us, even though the kingdom is not yet operating in its full power. We have already been brought into God’s kingdom (Colossians 1:13). We are already receiving a kingdom, and our proper response is reverence and awe (Hebrews 12:28). Christ “has made us [past tense] to be a kingdom” (Revelation 1:6). We are a holy nation (1 Peter 2:9)—already and currently a holy kingdom—but it does not yet appear what we shall be. God has rescued us from the dominion of sin and transferred us into his kingdom, under his ruling authority.  Eternal life with the triune God will be good primarily because of the relationships of love that will be in eternity – honesty and kindness will prevail. That sort of behavior has good results – not just in the future, but in the present age as well. So God invites us into this way of life.
.
The kingdom is not just a future reality – people are even now entering God’s kingdom by responding to what he offers. He offers not an artificial world in which our enjoyment has no connection with the way we treat other people, but a world or kingdom in which joy is the natural result of love, of treating others the way we wish to be treated.
.
Jesus  is already ruling, and we should be living his way now. We Christians do have now a small foretaste of what we will have in the future. We don’t yet possess a territory, but we do come under the reign of God. The kingdom of God is here now, as  Jesus said  Not by any means what many Jews still want to or expect to happen sadly.. At the end of the age, the Messiah Jesus Christ will return in his full power and glory, the weeds and tares, Satan now too will  be removed, and the kingdom of God will again be transformed in appearance. There will be no separate Jewish Kingdom here too.. The final form of the kingdom in Heaven now too , in which everyone is perfect and spiritual, will be dramatically different from the millennial one. The Holy Spirit himself now  is our guarantee of greater blessings (2 Corinthians 5:5, Ephesians 1:14).
.

Today the  church is the true Israel and Christians are God’s true “Jews” today.

.

Jesus taught that God would take his blessings away from fleshly Israel who rejected him as Christ and give it to the Gentiles. Jesus clearly taught the Gentile believers would replace Jewish non-believers.

a.      “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it. ” (Matthew 21:43)

b.      The Jews who heard this understood what Rapture false teachers today refuse to see: “When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they understood that He was speaking about them. ” (Matthew 21:45)

.

 The Bible clearly teaches that God’s true Jews today are Christians:

a.      “For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God. ” (Romans 2:28-29)

b.      “Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation. Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God [Christians]. ” (Galatians 6:15-16)

c.       “for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh, ” (Philippians 3:3)

.

 Even the apostolic fathers of the first and second century  believed and taught “replacement theology”:

a.      “Christians are the True Israel” (Justin Martyr, Dialogues, Chapter CXXIII, 130 AD)

b.      “As therefore from the one man Jacob, who was surnamed Israel, all your nation has been called Jacob and Israel; so we from Christ, who begat us unto God, (like Jacob, and Israel, and Judah, and Joseph, and David,) are called and are the true sons of God, and keep the commandments of Christ” (Justin Martyr, Dialogues, Chapter CXXIII, 130 AD)

c.       “Christ is King of Israel, and Christians are the Israelitic Race. (Justin Martyr, Dialogues, Chapter CXXXV, 130 AD)

d.      “As, therefore, Christ is the Israel and the Jacob, even so we, who have been quarried out from the bowels of Christ, are the true Israelitic race.” (Justin Martyr, Dialogues, Chapter CXXXV, 130 AD)

e.      “For all the nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in their hearts.’ … But though a man be a Scythian or a Persian, if he has the knowledge of God and of His Christ, and keeps the everlasting righteous decrees, he is circumcised with the good and useful circumcision, and is a friend of God, and God rejoices in his gifts and offerings.” (Justin Martyr, Dialogues, Chapter XXVIII, 130 AD)

The Parable of the Landowner: Israel replaced by Church/Christians

 Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who PLANTED A VINEYARD AND PUT A WALL AROUND IT AND DUG A WINE PRESS IN IT, AND BUILT A TOWER, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey. “When the harvest time approached, he sent his slaves to the vine-growers to receive his produce. “The vine-growers took his slaves and beat one, and killed another, and stoned a third. “Again he sent another group of slaves larger than the first; and they did the same thing to them. “But afterward he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ “But when the vine-growers saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir; come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.’ “They took him, and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. “Therefore when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vine-growers?” They said to Him, “He will bring those wretches to a wretched end, and will rent out the vineyard to other vine-growers who will pay him the proceeds at the proper seasons.” Jesus said to them, “Did you never read in the Scriptures, ‘THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone; THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD, AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES’? “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it. “And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.” When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they understood that He was speaking about them. When they sought to seize Him, they feared the people, because they considered Him to be a prophet. ” (Matthew 21:33-46)

.

In a parable so crystal clear only a premillennialist could get it wrong, the Jews, as a nation, were going to be replaced by something new, the church.

.

 “He will bring those wretches to a wretched end” happened in 70 AD.

.

  Now clearly the entire leadership of the apostolic church and most of the Elders in the churches were Jewish. But they had become Christians who stopped keeping the Sabbath and abandoned the Mosaic system of Judaism. They began immediately worshipping god on the first day of the week, the Lord’s day.

.

Jesus went to the Jews first but they rejected Him as the Messiah. The church, (the kingdom) is now open to both Jew and Gentile equally. Both must believe, repent, confess Jesus as Lord and be baptized for the remission of their sins. There is only one way to get saved! Jews have no special route to heaven that gentiles do not have. They all must believe and do the same things to be saved.

.

Paul always began his evangelism in a new city by preaching in the Jewish synagogues. When the Jews rejected the gospel, he turned to the gentiles: “But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and began contradicting the things spoken by Paul, and were blaspheming. Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you first; since you repudiate it and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles. ” (Acts 13:45-46)

.

 “This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve, [Israel] “THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE VERY CORNER stone,” and, “A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE”; for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, and to this doom they were also appointed. But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY. ” (1 Peter 2:7-10)

.

a.      Notice that the “you are a chosen, holy nation of priests”, which was originally applied to fleshly Israel at the foot of Mt. Sinai is now applied to Christians to the exclusion of physical Israel unless they believe.

 i.      “and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel.” ” (Exodus 19:6)

.

  ii.      “”For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. ” (Deuteronomy 7:6)

.

b.      Notice that the text applies these special blessings of being “you are a chosen, holy nation of priests” to the gentiles and that fleshly Israel was “appointed to doom”

.

National Identities are destroyed in Christ:

1.      Passages:

a.      “For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. ” (Ephesians 2:14-16)

b.      “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise. ” (Galatians 3:26-29)

2.      Notice that in fulfilling Isa 2:2-4, Christ brought about peace between all the nations that were at war.

3.      When a Jew becomes a Christian, he ceases to be a Jew and becomes a new creature.

4.      In Christ there are no national competing identities like there were under the Old Testament.

5.      National Jews have no advantage over Americans, Canadians, Egyptians or Iranians.

6.      Today Christians are God’s “chosen race” and they can be from any nation on earth.

.

Summary

1.      “Replacement Theology” or “Fulfillment Theology”, also known as “Supersessionism” is the true Bible doctrine that Christians and the Church of Christ replaced the Jews and the nation of Israel.

2.      Jesus taught Replacement Theology.

3.      The apostles taught Replacement Theology.

4.      The apostolic fathers like Justin Martyr taught Replacement Theology.

5.      There is no special plan of salvation today for the Jews. There is one gospel and Jews and Gentiles must obey the same gospel and be saved exactly the same way.

6.      There is nothing in the bible that teaches that at the end of time, God will bring Israel back to Canaan and offer them alone a special salvation merely because they are blood descendants of Abraham.

7.      There is no distinction in God’s eyes today between Jews and Gentiles. Jews who reject Jesus Christ as their messiah are in exactly the same spiritual state as Hindus, Muslims or atheistic evolutionists.

8.      There is not a Jew alive that can prove his Jewish heritage through genealogy. Most Jews in Israel today are Russian proselytes.
.

Also The signs of Matthew 24 prophecies the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD not the second coming and certainly not some “Rapture” theology that was invented in 1830 AD by John Darby. When Christians saw the signs, they fled the city and were saved.

ABOUT THOSE IN FALSE DENIAL

Under the New Covenant, the New Testament does God still show partiality? to the Christians? or to the Jews? Arabs?
.
The reality is that because of the death of Jesus Christ on the cross the New Covenant next replaces the Mosaic Covenant, which is commonly referred to as the “Old Covenant”.
.
Christians have now replaced the National Jews, Israel as God’s chosen people too, in Inheriting now rather all of God’s promises too. . All of the The early Christian CHURCH theologians saw the New Covenant in Christ as a NEW replacement for the Mosaic Covenant for most of the last hundreds of years.
,
(Matthew 21:33-45), addressed Israel, the Jews of that time, “the chief priests and the Pharisees”, “‘When therefore the lord of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those farmers?’ They told him, ‘He will miserably destroy those miserable men, and will lease out the vineyard to other farmers, who will give him the fruit in its season.” 
.
Only Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6) and that  there is no other salvation but through him.
.
The saints are described in Revelation as those who “hold to the testimony of Jesus.” ((Rev 12:17 KJV)  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.) 
.
Mat 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 
.
Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house (Israel)  is left unto you desolate. Luke 13:35 Behold, your house (Israel)  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.
.
Acts 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
.
Some correctly suggest that both Islam and Christianity have Abrahamic roots and that both religions teach morals, ethics and monotheism, the similarities quickly disintegrate with a careful study of either the Bible or the Qur’an.
.
An examination of the deities worshiped by the two religions immediately brings into question how any thoughtful, biblically-minded Christian could ascertain Islam’s chief edict – that we all worship the same God. 
* Allah is NOT Jehovah
* The Jesus of Islam is NOT the Jesus of the Bible
* The Bible does NOT harmonize with the Qur’an
* Salvation by faith is NOT available through Islam
* Chrislam is neither Christian nor Muslim
.
The sole basis of the Christian faith today, which is why it is also called the New Testament as well, is not at all the Old Testament Judaism but the New Testament Jesus.
.
The true Christians since Jesus Christ next always left their old Jewish Synagogues all together… and all Christian Jews, Messianic Jews too need to do this today as well, also they are supposed to give up their Jewish roots, Jewish culture, Jewish religion when they accept Jesus Christ as their master, lord and savior . Some clerics, theologians, and scholars have worked hard to recover the supposedly historical Jewish Jesus. why? Ironically this rather was aided also by the Jews, Judiazers, even the false Christians themselves who falsely wanted it seems to promote their own self importance, the false value of the now rather false, obsolete old Judaic religion, and it’s also still the false observation of the Old testament letter of the law over the New Testament spirit of the law approach. It is an ungodly act still too.
.
THE LYING Messianic Jews, and the Seventh day Adventists, Judiazers WHO PREACH PARTIALS TRUTHS AND NEW TESTAMENT BIBLICAL DISTORTIONS ARE NOT THE REAL CHRISTIANS WHO WILL GO TO HEAVEN, BUT ARE THE NON CHRISTIANS WHO WILL GO TO HELL EVEN WITH THE UNSAVED JEWS WHO REJECTED JESUS  CHRIST THE MESSIAH;
.
Less any one gets lost, there are Good Jews, Good Arabs, good Americans, good Canadians and bad ones too.   I still am too often asked to take sides in false disputes such as the religious wars between the non Pentecostals and the Pentecostals, or the ongoing wars between the Jews and Arabs, or between the Liberals or Conservatives.. or the too often wars  between spouses  and/or the  relatives   –  for they  too often for me both sides are now still extremes, in the wrong.. I rightfully do still prefer to choose the road of peace and thus support none of these bad guys still. It all now still reminds me of the little children and their immature behavior where one says to another play only with  me and not with the other person.
.
ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE  WHO CANNOT ADMIT EVEN ANY CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM OR JEWISH  WRONG DOINGS, SINS NOW THEY ARE IN A FALSE DENIAL STILL TOO
.
Both the Old and New Testaments indicate that God does not show partiality among people, since He is the Creator of all.16 Because of this principle, the Jews were commanded to be impartial. .”So I also have made you despised and abased before all the people, just as you are not keeping My ways but are showing partiality in the instruction. “Do we not all have one father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously each against his brother so as to profane the covenant of our fathers? (Malachi 2:9-10) “Now then let the fear of the LORD be upon you; be very careful what you do, for the LORD our God will have no part in unrighteousness or partiality or the taking of a bribe.” (2 Chronicles 19:7) Being chosen did not always bring great blessings, since the Jews were held to a higher level of accountability, and were judged for their failures. The Bible makes it clear that God does not show partiality, since He created all people. He commands His people to behave likewise.
.
God and I love Arabs, Palestinians, Russians, Jews , Chinese, Koreans, American, Germans, etc., yes everyone and do you or do you like to show false partialities? or favoritism?
.
But it seems both Jews and Arabs are equally guilty of hate, unforgiveness, revenge, theft, murder, an eye for an eye approach  so we can really not support either side as being mainly in the right.  I do believe some persons are wrongfully deliberate racists and they should be punished for it. Many persons are unintentionally racists and often they see the false racist act of others and become accomplices rather in the matter by not speaking out against it. Some persecution in life is unavailable it seems. But nevertheless it is also true that if a person wants to have friend, they must work at it, they must show themselves friendly, and personal friendship costs some sacrifices too, friendship and respect are generally not automatic, they have to be earned it seems as well. But we must all have enforced human rights, the right to education, to live, to work, freedom to speak and to be heard, freedom of religion as well.. 
.
(Jer 34:17 KJV) Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ye have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother, and every man to his neighbour: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
.
The true Biblical scholar can note all of the major, essential Christian doctrines have been repeated by Jesus or the apostles in the New Testament. Zionism, the reestablishment of the nation of Israel, with Jerusalem as it’s capital is not one of them.  When Christianity became a formal, legal religion in the fourth century,  Churches throughout the world  agreed on which books should form the New Testament, and they agreed on several basic statements of faith. One of the doctrinal lists created was the Apostles’ Creed, the Creed was  an accurate summary of what the apostles taught. It too does not mention Zionism. Nor does the Nicene creed. Nor many others. So  the present support of Zionism by many Christians is not a true, valid  Christian teaching . PROVE ME WRONG FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT THEN.. Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’(Mt. 4:4,7,10 );
.
NOW IF THE JEWS RIGHTFULLY  LEFT ISRAEL WE WOULD NOT HAVE ALL THIS BLOODSHED.. NOTE  JESUS DID NOT SANCTION THIS RETURN TO ISRAEL.. JEWS HAVE RETURNED ON THEIR OWN AND THUS ALL THE PROBLEMS ARE AS A RESULT OF THEIR OWN RETURN.
.
Too many fundamentals, professing Christians now falsely do that the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was prophesied in Scripture while there is no direct support of this in the New Testament Bible even still. Zionism, on the other hand, “is a secularist, largely atheistic ideology” that emerged in the late 19th century. God still does not require the human input to fulfill his own prophecies.;
.
Now too many Christian Zionists, extremists do falsely do now believe that in order to fulfill all of the Biblical prophecy, Israel must next conquer most of the Middle East. And anyone watched the mostly self centered, get richer TV evangelists such as a Pat Robertson or John Hagee and their distorted sermons scenarios involving the future “Rapture,” Jesus Christ and also Israel, should also quickly firstly now realize that these false prophets are not only fleecing, scaring their flock to give more money but falsely are into worshipping the false idol of Israel. . John Hagee pays himself over a million dollars a year in TAX FREE money while having several palaces to live in, like the $2.1 million 7,969-acre ranch outside Brackettville, Texas , with five lodges, including a “main lodge” and a gun locker.; Once considered a small marginal doctrine among evangelicals, the false dispensationalist theology of Christian Zionism has greatly escalated, ironically falsely with the help of jess, Messianic Jews, Judaizers and many others too.;
.
The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard (Matt 21:  33    Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: 34    And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. 35    And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. 36    Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. 37    But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. 38    But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. 39    And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.  40    When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41    They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42    Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? 43    Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. 44    And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 45    And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.;
.
This parable clearly shows that the Christian Church totally now rather succumbs all of the past promises made to Israel. Be careful about accepting anyone’s word about Christian Zionism do first read the Bible, New Testament for yourself and know the truth rather.
.
  In the eyes of God, who shows no partiality, both Israel and Palestinians are both equally guilty of murder… never mind the false justifications. Eye for an eye too Israel never satisfied till it has falsely possessed, stole back all of the once promised land.  Israel clearly does not want to negotiate peace, it prefers more land conquest by wars…;
 .
 Thus says the Lord God of Israel: You shed blood, yet you would keep possession on the land? You rely on your sword, you do abominable things… yet you would keep possession of the land?… I will make the land a desolate waste, and her proud strength will come to an end. (Ezekiel 33:25-29) On the basis of such sober warnings is it not more likely that Israel will experience an imminent exile rather than restoration? The tension between Christians who call for the implementation of international law and Zionists is no where more clearly polarized than on the issue of the status of Jerusalem
.
And the spin doctors in Israel, Jewish supporters are hard at work  justifying all of their actions, the good and the bad ones. Some they even falsely manage  to paint supporters of Israel as moderates and all others as being anti-Semites, and many Jews  still are often are deflecting attention away from Israeli injustices against the Palestinians    but still the Criticism of Israel is not an anti-Semitic act
.
shed

.

Now natural Israel has no longer any standing before God, or any part in His future purposes. The New Testament Scriptures makes it now  certain that the national restoration of Israel after the flesh is not a part of the revealed will of God, but that the reverse is true. God regards natural Israel  earthly kingdom with utter detestation, and He will never restore it, Next when John the Baptist preached to the Jewish people, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” he was not announcing the setting up again of the earthly throne of David for Israel as many Jews, some professing Christians  falsely hoped, believe it would happen again.

.

Even Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God, Jesus Christ, and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND BUT TO THE NEW HEAVENLY Jerusalem.. (Rev 3:12 KJV)  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.
.
We need to show our love to Israel firstly and be praying that  the Lord to place that hedge of protection around His Chosen ones the Jewish? PEOPLE? DREAM ON..  
.
THE WAY I SEE IT NOW Is that we all should not show false partiality to the Jews, even now wrongfully overlook all of the Jews wrong doings, even the  fact that the Jews have been killing Christians even in Lebanon,  no partiality even  because once in the past they the Jews were God’s chosen people.  We do need to be Praying for Israel  to live peacefully with others. 
WE ALSO DO STILL NEED TO FIRSTLY ASK THE JEWS TO REPENT OF ALL THEIR WRONG DOINGS, OF NOW TRYING TO RECONQUEST THE PROMISED LAND, EVEN STILL NOW, IN THE FLESH., RATHER THEY ARE  STILL RETURN TO JESUS CAUSE THEY THE JEWS ARE ALL STILL ALL GOING TO HELL EVEN IF THEY NOW ARE LIVING IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL  FOR WITHOUT JESUS TODAY AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR EVERYONE, THE JEWS INCLUDED THEY GOES TO HELL.. BY THE WAY THE TERM CHOSEN ONE REFERS TO THE CHRISTIANS ONLY IN THE NEW TESTAMENT NOW AND NOT TO THE JEWS.
.
So where then is the Promised Land finally? It is being prepared for you in heaven if you accept Jesus Christ as your own  Lord and Savior now firstly. For a Christian, to dwell in the land of promise is also a figure, or shadow, of the blessings of living by faith in Christ, in peace, and leaving the wilderness behind. The “wilderness” pictures the progressive journey of a believer to a mature faith. Thus, the land is compared to Eden, where the saints have access to the tree of life, and the promise of immortality. [Ezekiel 36:35; Joel 2:3]
.
Albert Einstein sent to the New York Times in 1948, and t is clear when reading this personal view of Einstein’s, written at the time of Israel’s formation, that his remarks about Jewish Zionist Terrorists are more harsh and pointed than anything written by today’s journalists. After seeing the world emerge from the Holocaust, Einstein was sickened by the exact same politics that continue to violate the rights of all non-Jews in the Holy Land.   
.
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not her plagues. For her sins have reached up to heaven and God hath remembered her iniquities. (Rev. 18:4-5);
.
(2 Cor 13:11 KJV)  Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you;
.
John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.;
.
Replacement theology is the teaching that the Christian church has replaced national Israel regarding the plan, purpose, and promises of God.

Therefore, many of the promises that God made to Israel must be spiritualized.  For example, when it speaks of Israel being restored to the land, this really means that the Christian church will be blessed.  Also, covenants made with Israel are fulfilled in the Christian church so, for example,

  1. The Jewish people are no longer God’s chosen people.  Instead, the Christian church now makes up God’s chosen people.
  2. In the New Testament after Pentecost, the term “Israel” refers to the church.
  3. The Mosaic covenant (Exodus 20) is replaced by the new covenant (Luke 22:20). 
  4. Actual circumcision is replaced by a circumcision of the heart (Rom. 2:29). 

So, in replacement theology the church has replaced Israel as the primary means by which the world is blessed by God’s work. Though it is true that the church does replace Israel in some areas such as properly representing God on earth, acknowledging the promise of the Messiah,

God is not completely done with Israel as  the Christian church is its complete replacement.

“For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery, lest you be wise in your own estimation, that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; 26 and thus all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, ‘The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will remove ungodliness from Jacob,’” (Rom. 11:25-26)..

Replacement theology is also known as supersessionism which means that the Christian church has superceded Israel in God’s plan.

In Christianity, cessationism is the doctrine that spiritual gifts such as speaking in tongues, prophecy and healing ceased with the original twelve apostles and the completion of the canon of Scripture. . This is generally opposed to continuationism, which teaches that the Holy Spirit may bestow the spiritual gifts on persons other than the original twelve apostles at any time. Cessation theology, so-called, is, astonishingly enough, exactly what it denounces: completely nonbiblical. There is absolutely no clear biblical statement that any of the gifts of the Spirit have gone anywhere, especially away. How could they go away? What could that possibly even mean? The Holy Spirit has not taken the last train for the coast. The gifts are His gifts. They were not the possession of the apostles nor of the church in any time or location. Where the Spirit is, the gifts are.

How does he know what God has decided? He assumed he knows what God has decided because surely God would not use someone else, somewhere else. Surely. If that writer has not seen a train for a while, then surely the trains don’t run anymore, anywhere.Just because trains don’t run past your house doesn’t mean there’s no such thing as trains. Furthermore, if there are no trains where you are, why not check out other, more active train stations? Trainspotting for cave dwellers is dismally disappointing business, and train denial is absurdly arrogant Because I have never seen a train, there are no trains. It also smacks of an incredible conceit. “If God were going to manifest His gifts anywhere in any time among any group, it would surely be now among me.” How can any  person be an expert on something he has never experienced?

If the gift of apostleship, prophet  has not  ended, then other gifts   have not as this foundation has been laid by the apostles and prophets (Eph. 2:20).

Some people are too ready to believe in the cessation of the gifts of the Holy spirit but they are not read to accept the cessation of the importance of  Jews, Israel in the New Testament

 .

Truth is undeniable and cannot be suppressed

faith

Psalms 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

1 John 2:7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.

8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.

2 John 1:5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

Matthew 5:43    Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Luke 6: 27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28    Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29    And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. 30    Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31    And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32    For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33    And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34    And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35    But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. 36    Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

The Jewish Zionists’ biggest error is their man centered gospel, that seeks an earthly kingdom and not a heavenly one rather, and it pursues it with violence falsely to obtain it.

Zionism is essentially the Jewish nationalism plus the  false Christian Zionism  both maintained by violence.  And the British Balfour Declaration  had  promised Zionists a ‘homeland’ in Palestine in exchange for certain services to the British Empire also had contained the  condition  that the Jewish homeland was not to be at the expense of the majority Arab population of Palestine.

Many Palestinians since then were falsely driven out of their homes, farms and businesses into refugee status. Their properties were seized without compensation to this day by a variety of devious mean. The physical eradication of Palestinian villages within Israel by bulldozer; occupation of territory beyond its internationally mandated borders by violence; and the planting of its citizens in occupied territory is even still a  violation of international law. 

The Palestinians  refugees, most of whom trace back their history in the land thousands of years, are even falsely denied the right of return to their homes while any Jew, however remote his connection with Palestine, is entitled to enter Israel, usually with significant financial subsidies.

This Zionist state is being created on the back of a huge historic injustice to Palestinian Arabs both Muslim and Christian ones now too.

United Nations resolutions critical of Israeli action over the years have been regularly blocked by the United States or are opposed by the U.S. in the General Assembly in often ludicrous 120 to 2 or 3 votes, with the 2 or 3 being the U.S. and Israel.

And any negative criticism of Israel carries with it the false,  dishonest  charge ‘anti-semitism’. This false Jewish reign of terror frightens away most  from admitting and uttering the truth. Israel is a ‘democracy’ only for Jews to maintain a xenophobic, racist state.  False Legal discrimination of various kinds against non-Jews and Palestinian Arabs too.

These truth are undeniable and cannot be suppressed nevertheless. . .

And this is life eternal, that they might know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent (John 17:3).

He came to His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, He gave to them authority to become the children of God, to those who believe on His name. (John 1:11-12).

But God commends His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. (Romans 5:8-10)

… Jesus Christ the faithful Witness, the First-born from the dead and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and made us kings and priests to God and His Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (Revelation 1:5-6)

And, brothers, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you have received, and in which you stand; by which you also are being kept safe, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

Then Jesus said again to them [the scribes and the Pharisees, v. 3], I go away, and you shall seek Me and shall die in your sins. Where I go, you cannot come…. And He said to them, You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. Therefore I said to you that you shall die in your sins, for if you do not believe that I AM, you shall die in your sins. (John 8:21, 23-24)

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you compass sea and the dry land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. (Matthew 23:15)

The Son of Man goes, as it has been written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born. (Matthew 26:24)

Christianity began as a revision of Judaism. 

There have been severe  religious   differences between Christianity and the traditional,  Rabbinical Judaism since the founding of Christianity both by Jesus Christ and the Apostles. Early  Christianity may have been considered a sect of Judaism, but the messianic claims by Jesus alienated many of the Jews and sharply deepened the schism.

The rightful  Christian religious opposition to Judaism is well known now,  as well as the ongoing Jewish hostility toward Christians,  even the continual hostility among the traditional Jews to Christians  that the Jewish people now have pursued even  from the early years of Christianity, with the resulting persecution of Christians in the early days too of Christianity in the New Testament. A false  persecution  that has persisted over the ensuing centuries, even today, driven by numerous factors including their significant religious,  theological differences, and the clear competition between and Synagogue and the Christian Church.  Yes Judaism even today  resents the encroachment of Christianity not just in Israel, but also throughout the world. American Jewry tends to reflects Israeli attitudes, it is not surprising that official Jewish groups even in the United States should oppose the public advancement of Christianity. This is nothing new. The New Testament church began amid withering harassment from the Jewish establishment.  The Jews themselves even now have falsely portrayed,  labeled any of the rightful  Christian opposition to Judaism as being even now  the Modern Jewish Anti-Semitism  and many Messianic Jews also falsely claim that Christian anti-Semitism still exists towards the Jews, their cultural, religious practices.  In Israel, it is easy to enact and enforce anti-missionary legislation. In America, it is necessary for Jewish groups to veil their true motivation as they work to establish an American equivalent of Israel’s anti-missionary law. Rather than give the impression that they oppose Christianity, they say it is “racism,” “prejudice,” “intolerance,” which they are against. Yet, they have one target, as they have in Israel: Christianity. To weaken its influence over Jews, Jewish leadership continues an aggressive, many-faceted program to discourage its outward expression, especially in public places.

Once gentiles had been converted to Christianity, the question arose whether and how far these gentile Christians were obliged to follow Jewish law in order to follow Jesus (Book of the Galatians). At the Council of Jerusalem, [Acts 15] it was decided that new gentile converts did not need to be circumcised (the Apostolic Decree of Acts 15:19-21), and the Apostle  Paul rightfully  questioned the validity of Jewish Christians’ adherence to the Jewish law in relation to faith in Christ. The Hatred of  Paul of Tarsus  by the Jews practicing   Judaism  still exists today.

Jewish Christians,  Judaizers falsely have argued that Christians were bound to observe Mosaic law.The issue was argued especially in the context of whether Gentile converts were obligated to undergo circumcision, which was a requirement for Jewish boys. The issue was  settled at the Council of Jerusalem, in which Paul and Barnabas participated as representatives of the church at Antioch. The Council had clearly  decided that Gentile converts were not subject to most Mosaic Law, including circumcision, but required them to stay away from eating meat with blood still on it, eating the meat of strangled animals, eating food offered to idols, and sexual immorality.

 The early Church Fathers also had   emphasized that the Church is the new “spiritual” Israel, completing or replacing the earthly Israel which was but its prototype. Today this view would come to be called “Supersessionism”. Historically the Jews have not only rejected Christianity, Jesus Christ as their Messiah but they also led  several revolts even against Roman government  and faced severe persecutions by Rome as punishment. 

A number of passages in the New Testament clearly state the  rightful rejection of Judaism . Among them are:

2 Corinthians 11:26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

Jn 8:37    I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.38    I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.39    They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.40    But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.41    Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.42    Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.43    Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.44    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

John 8: 1    Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.2    And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. .. .13    The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.14    Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.15    Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.16    And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.17    It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.18    I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.19    Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.20    These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.21    Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.22    Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.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.24    I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.25    Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.26    I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.27    They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.28    Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.29    And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.30    As he spake these words, many believed on him.31    Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;32    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.33    They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?34    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.35    And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.36    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.37    I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.38    I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.39    They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.40    But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.41    Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.42    Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.43    Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.44    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.45    And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.46    Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?47    He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.48    Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?49    Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.50    And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.51    Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.52    Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.53    Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?54    Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:55    Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.56    Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.57    Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?58    Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.59    Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

1 Thessalonians 2: 1    For yourselves, brethren, know our entrance in unto you, that it was not in vain:2    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 cloke 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:8    So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.9    For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.10    Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:11    As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children,12    That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.13    For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.14    For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:15    Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:16    Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.17    But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.18    Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.19    For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?20    For ye are our glory and joy.

And not all of  Jewish people, then, will be saved on the basis of God’s covenants with Israel or on any other basis.   Apostle Paul points out that only a minority of Jewish people will be saved.God has not rejected his people whom he chose long ago. Don’t you know what the Scripture says in the story about Elijah, when he pleads with God against Israel? “Lord, they have killed your prophets and demolished your altars. I am the only one left, and they are trying to take my life.” But what was the divine reply to him? “I have reserved for myself 7,000 people who have not knelt to worship Baal.” So it is at the present time: there is a remnant, chosen by grace. – Romans 11:2-5

And so all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, “There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob. For this is My covenant with them, when I have taken away their sins.” (Romans 11:26-27)

This declaration will be fulfilled at a time yet future to our day, at the very end of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7), the Great Tribulation; but even then, two-thirds of Israel’s population will die unsaved: And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant. And I will purge out from among you the rebels and those who sin against Me (Ezekiel 20:37-38). And it shall be in all the land, says Jehovah, two parts in it shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left in it. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, It is My people; and they shall say, Jehovah is my God (Zechariah 13:8-9).

God will first purge out Israel’s rebels and sinners, two-thirds of the nation, by means of death. They will obviously die unsaved, and only the remaining one-third will God bring into the bond of the New Covenant and call them, My people. It is at this point in history – and at no previous point – that all Israel ( Including the Gentiles) will be saved (Romans 11:26).;

In order for any persons to be saved from Hell, Jews included, they  must personally believe and accept that  that Jesus Christ  died for theirs sins, that He was buried, and that He rose bodily from the dead and they must be water Baptized, and be  filled, as well as personally now also Baptized with the Holy Spirit.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16);

 and Jesus Himself said, Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes on Me has everlasting life (John 6:47).

 By grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).

For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek: for the same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich unto all that call upon him: for, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? and how shall they preach, except they be sent? even as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things! (Romans 10:12-15) Messianic Judaism is a syncretic religious movement that combines Jewish practices with Christian beliefs. Both Jews and Christians normally regard it as as Christian sect or cult. Some persons  in the Messianic Jewish community falsely believe that faith in  Jesus  plus the keeping of the Law are necessary for salvation. The Scriptures are very clear in this matter.

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness for everyone who believes (Romans 10:4).

[He] abolished in His flesh the enmity, the Law of commandments contained in ordinances (Ephesians 2:15).

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He [God the Father] has made alive together with Him [Jesus], having forgiven you all trespasses, blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and has taken it out of the way, nailing it to the cross (Colossians 2:13-14).

For truly there is a putting away of the commandment which went before, because of the weakness and unprofitableness of it. (Hebrews 7:18)

Then He said, “Lo, I come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first so that He may establish the second. (Hebrews 10:9)

When Jesus died on the cross, the Law of Moses was nailed to the cross, brought to an end, abolished, blotted out, taken out of the way, put away.

The Law of Moses is no longer operative today. Even if the Law were operative, by the works of the Law none of all flesh will be justified in His sight (Romans 3:20). The Law of Moses has been surpassed and replaced by the finished work of Messiah, and the Law never did justify anyone. It suffices nothing for salvation. By grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Isaiah 25:1,9 O LORD, You are my God. I will exalt You. I will praise Your name, for you have done wonderful things. And it will be said in that day: “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.

(Eph 4:11 KJV)  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

Notice the   continual Greek verse tense here  in the passage, stating thus God himself   keeps on giving these anointed persons, offices.. 

“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues” (I Cor 12:  27-28).

All these Elders, Church offices do exist today and there is a visible and undeniable Church office ranking here though but it is also not one directional, but bi directional, the ranking is also all voluntary and based on mutual submission, unenforceable. A truly holy spirit led church would have all of these offices now too.

(Titus 1:5 KJV)  For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:

The true structure of government in the Church is  still  what we can all a “Christ-archy,” “christocracy,” or simply a “Theocracy” — “Theos” of course being the Greek word for God. In God’s true Church, He God, Jesus Christ  is always the Head. When men let Christ lead, we don’t end up with confusion and anarchy. Christ is capable of leading his Church by his Holy Spirit by any believer  now too, and the book of Acts gives ample testimony to this fact. (Prov 9:9 KJV)  Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

Some persons still do  teach a false and an extreme doctrine here. They say the word of God alone is the only, sole authority for all. Each member of the Church must prove everything from the Word of God himself, then each member now needs only to follow the Word of God and nothing, no one else.  The Word of God, the Bible  becomes the Head of the Church. We thus now don’t  follow any men. Well Jesus is the head of the church, but he also speaks now by his Holy Spirit. the gifts of the Holy Spirit, even by Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Teachers, Evangelists, Bishops- Elders..  and not just by the Bible now to. Men can guide us to the words of Christ. Men may have gifts that enable them to see things others may not of themselves clearly see. Nonetheless, such men must not strive to be the main authority themselves. Their role is simply to help people see the expressed will of God. Every member of the Church must be following God finally, initially. God can and does still use the Holy Spirit, and not just men, dreams and  angels too  to confirm his words, even  from the Bible to us.

 In Matthew 20:20-26 we read of an incident where the mother of James and John, along with her sons, lobbied for the “top” two positions in the Kingdom under Christ. (Mat 20:23 KJV)  And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father. Jesus also has promised, “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” (Rev. 3:21). Everyone who enters God’s kingdom will share in the rulership of the world. We will lead the nations as a family, as a Kingdom of priests. All who sit with Christ on His throne will be given “power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father” (Rev. 2:26-27). The only one over us is Christ. Jesus is our Master. Everyone else is on the same level. There are no inferior ranks in the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11.  Paul reminds us that “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;” (v. 4).

“”But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them [the Greek term translated “exercise dominion” is “katakurieuo”, which means “downward lordship” or “hierarchical control”] and they that are great exercise authority [Greek “katexousiazo” meaning “downward control”] upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many” (Mat. 20:25-28).  “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will” (vv. 4-11). ” 

Paul in these verses made it clear that these gifts do not elevate one man over another. He stressed that regardless of who had which gift, it was God doing the work through His Spirit. Paul also stressed here that God gave the gifts to whomever He willed. Since any member could receive any gift, we realize that God was not in any way validating an inferior hierarchical structure.   A house divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:25)  applies to  Churches, and our homes, and our marriages too.

Generally the people who have to use titles to promote themselves are false..  they should be firstly now still  promoting Jesus Christ and not themselves.. Let us all stop here and remember that anyone   not being Baptized and led now by the Holy Spirit is still a real waste of time. And without the real application of love any    approach will still fail too.  Also voluntary, unenforceable, mutual, reversible accountability and submission is an integral part of the New Testament church structure rather still and of all true churches today as well . Even Apostle Paul does not always pull rank. Acts 15: 4 we see, “they were received of the church and of the apostles and elders, and they declared all things that God had done with them.”

Jeremiah 17:5. “Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.”

(Galatians 1:10). “do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ”

1Corinthians 11:3. “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; 

God “hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all” (Eph. 1:22-23). The Father “hath committed all judgment unto the Son: … And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man” (John 5:22-27).

“Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:[this proves that Philip acted without seeking approval from men, for they heard about it after the fact] Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost” (Acts 8:14-17).  Also do note that in Acts 2, where we read about the birth of the New Testament Church through the outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit. The Holy spirit was given directly by God to every single member present initially but next it was done by the laying on by the  hands of the elders on every single person?  evidenced by the person also speaking in tongues initially by every single person baptized with the Holy Spirit. I know it happened to me. In the Book of Acts  everyone  there got Baptized with the Holy Spirit and also got the gift of toungues.   God here also revealed that he planned to speak through all of the saints, not just to a special few

“JUST AS APOSTLES PAUL ASKED THOSE BELIEVERS AT EPHESUS, I ALSO ASK YOU: HAVE YE RECEIVED THE HOLY GHOST? YES, YOU ARE REDEEMED, YET YE NEED TO BE BAPTISED IN THE HOLY GHOST – FOR UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THAT BAPTISM YOU WILL CONTINUE TO STRUGGLE TO LIVE A RIGHTEOUS LIFE, REAL STRUGGLE. SAD ENOUGH, YOU MAY NOT HAVE ANY PERSON TO LAY HANDS ON YOU AS APOSTLE PAUL DID HERE, FOR OBVIOUS REASONS. BUT YOU CAN PRAY THROUGH. JUST BE SINCERE ABOUT IT. GO TO GOD IN PRAYERS, AND FASTING IF NEED BE – EARNESTLY DESERING TO BE SO BAPTISED- AND YOU WILL RECEIVE, EVEN BY FAITH.”

 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples. He said unto them, have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, we have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost……and when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them: and they spake with tongues, and prophesied… ACTS OF THE APOSTLES 19:1-2, 6.

The people who falsely exalt themselves are following Satan’s path

 (2Corinthains 11:13-14-15) Such people are false apostles; dishonest workers who are masquerading as apostles of Christ. 

(2Cor 11:14) And no wonder, since Satan himself; masquerades as an ‘angel’ of light.

(2Cor 11:15) So it is not surprising; if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their ‘damnation’ will match their deeds!

*** (Revelation 2:1-2) To the angel of the church of Ephesus write: He who holds the seven stars in His right hand; Who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, says these things.

(Rev 2:2) I know your works and your labor and your patience; and how you cannot bear those who are evil. And you tried those ‘pretending’ to be apostles; and are ‘Not’, and have found them ‘LIARS.’

 (Gal 6:3) For if anyone thinks he is something; when he is ‘Really Nothing’; he is ‘only’ fooling himself.

2 Peter 3: 2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: 3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

 (Heb 3:1 KJV)  Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Jesus Christ

Dan 2:44 4 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Acts 1: 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Micah 4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.

Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

John 15:  1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.    Habakkuk 3: 17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: 18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. 19 The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.

Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Hidden agendas,

Matthew 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

(Acts 5:42 KJV) And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

Acts 3:6 KJV) Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see.

2 Tim 3:5 KJV Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas. some not too well hidden even. Sadly some people they tend present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness for they tend to falsely have a hidden agenda, one of which is that often they want to get rich, and ?or live in the kingdom off self, to be falsely personally worshipped and still live in sin too.

Is 2:22 Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?

(Gal 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Jer 17:5 Thus says the Lord: Cursed [with great evil] is the strong man who trusts in {and} relies on frail man, making weak [human] flesh his arm, and whose mind {and} heart turn aside from the Lord. :6 For he shall be like a shrub {or} a person naked and destitute in the desert; and he shall not see any good come, but shall dwell in the parched places in the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.:7 [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, {and} relies on the Lord, and whose hope {and} confidence the Lord is. 8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see {and} fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious {and} full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit. 9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly perverse {and} corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it [perceive, understand, be acquainted with his own heart and mind]? 10 I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. 11 Like the partridge that gathers a brood which she did not hatch {and} sits on eggs which she has not laid, so is he who gets riches by unjust means {and} not by right. He will leave them, {or} they will leave him, in the midst of his days, and at his end he will be a fool.

Now many Jews today are struggling for all of the Land of Israel that no longer has been Biblically Promised to them.. Very clearly and simply too there is not one verse in the New Testament that states now even after the Roman destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, and their scattering of the Nation of Israel worldwide, of a promise of the Jews restoration of the land of Israel, or even the city of Jerusalem being freed, and Jerusalem itself will only will be free after the Second Coming, the return of Jesus Christ for his bride, the Church, the true Christians.

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

(Rev 21:1 KJV) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 3 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

So if any Jewish or gentile person wants to be in the new Jerusalem they have to accept Jesus Christ as their lord and personal savior rather still too. For there is no other name given unto men by which they can escape from eternal separation from God, Hell.

Time also more Christians read their Bible instead of the fictional books, bad commentaries now too.As I also daily do read the Bible, it often surprises me how many so called Christians hold theological views that are in direct conflict of the Bible, are unproved in the Bible even in regard to so many topics now too.. They occasionally even rather do prefer to listen to the too often out of context, distorted verses out of the Bible quoted by the bad preachers.

Less any one gets lost, there are Good Jews, Good Arabs, good Americans, good Canadians and bad ones too. But it seems both Jews and Arabs are equally guilty of hate, unforgiveness, revenge, theft, murder, an eye for an eye approach so we can realy not support either side as being mainly in the right

Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. (Romans 10:1-2)

(Rom 16:17 KJV) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 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.

NOW THE NEWS MEDIA ITSELF HAS BEEN TOO OFTEN ACCUSED OF MAKING SENSATIONALIZED, EXAGGERATED PRESENTATIONS TO INCREASE THEIR VIEWER, READERS RATING. Sensationalism in the media is nothing new. .Sensationalism can be defined as arousing or intended to arouse strong curiosity, interest, to cast and present in a manner material intended to arouse strong interest,or reaction, especially by exaggerated or lurid details instead of concentrating on important issues, media is focusing on trivial ones. Sensationalism is also the type of editorial bias in mass media in which events and topics in news stories and pieces are over-hyped to increase viewership or readership numbers. The decision to EVEN print the rumors without much regard for the factual accuracy instead of merely reporting that rumors were floating around is evidence of the further alarming trend in the news media:

Sadly the same thing can be said of some of the self scented, selfish immature internet posters, who do not fully check the fact, truthful content of the material they do psts or they still do deliberately post the hype to try to get personal attention, increased reactions.. and we all do have to watch out now for them as well..

The False Dispensationalists, Dispensationalism

 
Note this firstly that 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.. http://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2008/11/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus/
.
Now about the Evangelicals, Plymouth Brethren,  Baptists  rather still ignorant so called Christians 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. 
.
Now had most fundamentals evangelicals actually read their Bibles, known the Bible instead of wrongfully listening to the so called Bible teachers, false preachers, bad teachers they would not have easily deceived to neglect the present full empowerment available of all believers by the Holy Spirit…

.

Read the scriptures for you think that doing so you will gain eternal life, but many people now do read the Bible and never got eternal life, cause they omitted the spirit of Jesus Christ actual teachings and the Bible”s as well
.
,,
(Mat 5:9 KJV) Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

(Psa 133:1 KJV) Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; 3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
,
(Psa 134:1 KJV) . Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD.2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. 3 The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.

.
.
The sole one verse that is falsely often referred too Luke 21:24 as a supposed proof of the restoration of the Jews, Israel clearly still has nothing to do with the restoration of Israel. Do now Read the Bible for yourself now in the actual context, even in the context of the the future New Heaven and New Earth, New Jerusalem solely forthcoming to all of the true Christian believers now as well
.
Luke 21:20 But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know {and} understand that its desolation has come near. Luke 21:21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside [the city] get out of it, and let not those who are out in the country come into it; Luke 21:22 For those are days of vengeance [of rendering full justice or satisfaction], that all things that are written may be fulfilled. Luke 21:23 Alas for those who are pregnant and for those who have babies which they are nursing in those days! For great misery {and} anguish {and} distress shall be upon the land and indignation {and} punishment {and} retribution upon this people. Luke 21:24 They will fall by the mouth {and} the edge of the sword and will be led away as captives to {and} among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (completed). Luke 21:25 And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth [there will be] distress (trouble and anguish) of nations in bewilderment {and} perplexity [without resources, left wanting, embarrassed, in doubt, not knowing which way to turn] at the roaring (the echo) of the tossing of the sea, Luke 21:26 Men swooning away {or} expiring with fear {and} dread {and} apprehension and expectation of the things that are coming on the world; for the [very] powers of the heavens will be shaken {and} caused to totter. Luke 21:27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with great (transcendent and overwhelming) power and [all His kingly] glory (majesty and splendor). Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to occur, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption (deliverance) is drawing near. Luke 21:29 And He told them a parable: Look at the fig tree and all the trees; Luke 21:30 When they put forth their buds {and} come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and perceive {and} know that summer is already near. Luke 21:31 Even so, when you see these things taking place, understand {and} know that the kingdom of God is at hand. Luke 21:32 Truly I tell you, this generation (those living at that definite period of time) will not perish {and} pass away until all has taken place. Luke 21:33 The sky and the earth (the universe, the world) will pass away, but My words will not pass away.
.
 
(Rev 21:1 KJV) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 3 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
.

So if any Jewish or gentile person wants to be in the new Jerusalem they have to accept Jesus Christ as their lord and personal savior rather still too. For there is no other name given unto men by which they can escape from eternal separation from God, Hell.

.

This is not the only place of much too many that Dispensationalists are wrong in now too..

.

It is because of such False supposedly Christian  people as You will find that the 19th century leader of the evangelical, Britain-based Plymouth Brethren was the most important figure in the development of the false “premillennial dispensationalism” – or, if you like choices, “dispensational premillennialism.”  and also   C.I.  Scofield that we now have withing only the last 300 years the new terms “Dispensationalism,” “Messianic Judaism”,  “Judaeo-Christianity,” and “Christian-Zionism.” But, more importantly, there now exists the false, heretical theological conditions necessary to allow Christians who are predisposed to do so, to support the outrages of World Jewry and Zionism. Thus, the Ahrimanic-inspired constructs of Pharisaism (Judaism) and its political arm, Zionism (by their rehabilitation and treatment by such men as Scofield) have corrupted Christianity. In other words, they are part of the terrible movement to Judaise Christianity; part of the deception that has it that Western Christian Civilisation has a “Judaeo-Christian Heritage” and that Christendom was, in fact, Judaeo-Christianity. A position most of the early Church Fathers and all of the Apostles would contest just as surely Christ Himself would contest. What is the message of the Christian Zionist? Simply stated it is this Every act taken by Israel is orchestrated by God, and should be condoned, supported, and even praised by the rest of us.

“Never mind what Israel does,” say the Christian Zionists. “God wants this to happen.” This includes the invasion of Lebanon, which killed or injured an estimated 100,000 Lebanese and Palestinians, most of them civilians; the bombing of sovereign nations such as Iraq; the deliberate, methodical brutalizing of the Palestinians-breaking bones, shooting children, and demolishing homes; and the expulsion of Palestinian Christians and Muslims from a land they have occupied for over 2,000 years.

Christian Zionism is a dangerous and a false growing segment of Christianity, which was popularized by the 19th-century American Cyrus Scofield when he wrote into a Bible his interpretation of events in history. These events all centered around Israel-past, present, and future. His Scofield Bible is today the most popular of the reference Bibles. Scofield said that Christ cannot return to earth until certain events occur. The Jews must return to Palestine, gain control of Jerusalem and rebuild a temple, and then we all must engage in the final, great battle called Armageddon. Millions of Americans falsely do believe that Palestine is God’s chosen land for the Jews.  The Scofield teaching is concerned with a literal Jewish kingdom to last for a millennium.  It was first brought into the early church by some Jews who still could not give up the hope taught to them by the scribes and Pharisees.  The Bible does not teach it, and the disciples who had been taught it, rejected it after Pentecost.  Jesus warned about it in Matthew 16:6-12. We must ask ourselves if Jesus ever offered or announced himself as an earthly King or claimed David’s throne?  Had he ever in any way suggested he was going to set up an earthly kingdom?  He said to Pilate, “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 (John 18:36).  They could not prove him guilty before Pilate of any offense against Rome….The most reasonable interpretation of the work of Scofield is that it is neither honest nor valid.  As such, it should have the whistle blown, for it is properly outside the line of valid Christianity. The Scofield Reference Bible did, and is doing, a great disservice to the Kingdom of God.  And as for this second  biggest proponnent of the false rapture…  C.I. Scofield deserted his first wife, Leontine Carr Scofield, and his two young daughters, Abigale and Helene. The stern reality of the 1880’s was that an abandoned woman had neither welfare nor access to a well paying job. This is just our first insight into the pitiless heart of C.I. Scofield. At this time, Scofield was making overtures to two other women-an unnamed young woman from the St. Louis Flower Mission, and Hettie Van Wark whom he later married. Leontine, a devout Catholic, obtained a divorce on December 8, 1883 in Scofield’s hometown of Atcheson, Kansas. From her meager earnings as a librarian she properly educated her two daughters. The abandoned Leontine never remarried and was laid to rest in the Atcheson cemetery in 1936. Three months after the divorce, on March 11, 1884, C.I. Scofield married Hettie Van Wark. Apart from deserting his young wife and children, he was a liar, cheat, thief, self-promoter, philanderer, fraud and fantasist who was allowed to conceal his personal sins from view because of the support of his powerful handlers, both Freemason and Zionist.  Scofield was also into the Occult as well as pornography and was a drunk… He died of liver failure due to has alchohol problem and opium drug us. He had his wife work as a street girl in order to finance his drug habit. He was also indited on tax evasion.  by their own fruits you can tell what they really are said Jesus.. http://www.heart-talks.com/truth30.html

Selling the Gospel for Money too

 

 (Luke 19:45 KJV)  And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought; 46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Most preachers today who sell the gospel for money tend to be still false themselves too. Neither Jesus Christ, His apostles, nor any early Church Christians  sold any portion of the Gospel to others, rather they clearly gave freely to all others in need..
 

(Acts 4:10 KJV)  Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 
  
 Luke 6:46 Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?             

 God still judges you not just by what you profess to believe but also by what you do
 
(Mat 10:8 KJV)  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.   

The free Gospel is a Biblical fact!

(Rom 3:24 KJV)  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
 
(Rom 8:32 KJV)  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
 
(1 Cor 2:12 KJV)  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
 
(Rev 21:6 KJV)  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
 
(Rev 22:17 KJV)  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
 

(1 Tim 6:10 KJV)  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  

 The sin of Baal worship includes the false love of money and the things money buys. 

New American Standard Bible (©1995)  “I will punish her for the days of the Baals When she used to offer sacrifices to them And adorn herself with her earrings and jewelry, And follow her lovers, so that she forgot Me,” declares the LORD.

 

(2 Ki 5:20 KJV)  But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Behold, my master hath spared Naaman this Syrian, in not receiving at his hands that which he brought: but, as the LORD liveth, I will run after him, and take somewhat of him. 21  So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw him running after him, he lighted down from the chariot to meet him, and said, Is all well? 22  And he said, All is well. My master hath sent me, saying, Behold, even now there be come to me from mount Ephraim two young men of the sons of the prophets: give them, I pray thee, a talent of silver, and two changes of garments. 23  And Naaman said, Be content, take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and laid them upon two of his servants; and they bare them before him. 24  And when he came to the tower, he took them from their hand, and bestowed them in the house: and he let the men go, and they departed. 25  But he went in, and stood before his master. And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither. 26  And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants? 27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.                    

It is also true that one can test the real spirituality of a preacher as to how he treats the salvation of the Jews and also the poor people now too!
 
(Gal 2:10 KJV)  Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.
 

False prophets are too common and they also will get what they deserve  too.   

 

(Acts 13:6 KJV)  And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:
 
(Rev 19:20 KJV)  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
 
(Rev 20:10 KJV)  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. 

(Judg 2:11 KJV)  And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:
  

(Jer 9:14 KJV)  But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:
 
(Hosea 2:17 KJV)  For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.
 
 (Heb 10:38 KJV)  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Pass it on.. Don’t believe anything you read unless you also check it out with the Bible too..

Comparative religion’s values

While there are some common, rare similarity amongst some of the major religions in this world, The aspect of polygamy, the rigths of divorce is clearly one that contrasts them all.. for a True Christian divorce is not permitted at all.. even if many Christians falsely practice it.
Too Many  persons do practice their own version of Christianity, and Islam it seems thus, based on what others have said it says too..
 
It is true that there are many Muslims, men as well as women, who fully do not live up to the teachings of Islam,and the other religions  now just as there are too many Christian men and women who do not live up to the teachings of Jesus, the Apostles, the Bible undeniably.
Muslims women themselves now often complain to news editors how they are abused by Muslim men. Muslim Relgion and do not have equal rights to the men, for example the right to go to school in many Muslim countries now too.. Muslims have equal rights to the other citizens in the English speaking countries.. In fact non Muslims do not have the same rights as Muslims in many Muslim countries now too and all of these facts are undeniable, and undisputable.
  
You must always still judge any person  now by what they say, but  by what they do. Bad people do bad things, no matter what their religion is now too.
  
Also real Reform from within Muslim societies is still even needed, first by even education, knowing that over half of Muslims today,  are illiterate, only 15 percent do even know  Arabic, which is the language of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam. 
 
Note: Sikhism now also like Mormons, Hindus, Jehovah Witnesses, Islam , Buddhism, and many others  too are  a cult, sect  that bears no genuine relationship to Christianity too. It does not follow the Christian Bible too.
  
One cannot help but notice how so many of these religions differ but now they still do claim to be originated with God. A true God is certainly not so confused that he has started all these various, different and false religions.
 

Afghani journalism student Parwiz Kambakhsh has been sentenced to death for blaspheming because he not only downloaded articles regarding woman’s right’s under Islam, but also exposing the brutality against women and children by the local warlords in his community. He is being sentenced to death for “disseminating defamatory comments about Islam.”Say it isn’t soooo? Sounds like another mo-ham-med teddy bear moment to me! A three judge panel decided that his articles were blasphemous and sentenced him to die. That’s Shari’ah Law for you. The issue for this writer is the Islamic concept of blasphemy

For any religion to survive in the modern world, it needs to adapt to its reality, especially when it comes to equality between men and women concerning religious practices. As men and women should worship God in the same way, women should also have the same rights as women in assuming religious responsibilities.
Some persons try to say that Islam has freed them, but did your brothers, father, government free you yet too? or are they still killng, murdering you ?

Seven reasons why I believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the basis of Christianity. The Apostle Paul stated that if Christ had not been raised from the dead, than all preaching and all teaching of God’s Word would be useless and so would the Christian faith. For this reason, I would like to review seven reasons why I fully believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.1. The historical reality of Jesus Christ is true.
The historicity of Jesus Christ is airtight. We have over 5,000 first century documents pointing to Jesus. The secular Roman historian Josephus mentions Jesus in his first century writings. There is archaeological confirmation, especially in the last 30 years, that verify the historical figures mentioned in the New Testament.

2. The character of Jesus Christ is unquestioned.
Jesus questions the authorities by asking, “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?” (John 8:46) None of them could prove him guilty – even after painstakingly questioning and investigating him.

3. The works of Jesus Christ went unchallenged.
The works of Christ, especially his miracles, were never disputed by his foes. The religious authorities acknowledged the miracles of Jesus and even made claims that Jesus powers came from the devil.

4. The identity of Jesus was confirmed.
Jesus claimed who he was by saying, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” (John 14:6) God, the Father proclaimed, “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!” (Mark 9:7) The Apostle Peter said, “You are the Christ”. Even the authorities knew of Jesus’ claim to be God. Granted, these all came from the Bible. However, the most compelling proof is that Jesus the Messiah fulfilled over 700 prophecies of the Old Testament.

5. The death of Jesus was undisputed.
He did not pretend to be dead. The grisly details are recorded of his resurrection, including the fact that a spear was thrust into his side and the Romans did not have to break his legs.

6. The burial of Jesus was public and secure.
He was placed in the tomb of a prominent Jew. The huge stone was set in place and sealed. Roman guards were posted and if they had truly “slept” through the stealing of Jesus’ body, they would have been executed. Besides, would this fearful band of disciples have the nerve to overcome the guards or sneak in to steal the body?

7. The evidence for Jesus’ resurrection is convincing.
The resurrection was predicted by Old Testament prophets. Jesus predicted his death and resurrection several times to his disciples. He appeared over twelve times to over 500 people over a period of forty days. He appeared to Saul, the great persecutor of the early Christians, and his life was transformed. The transformation of Peter from cowering in front of the accusations of a little girl to boldly proclaiming Christ in public and in front of the religious authorities is amazing.

The fact remains that Christians don’t have to throw their brains in the trash can to say that Jesus died and rose again. When you put the evidence in court and the witnesses on the stand, the truth points very solidly in favor of Jesus. What is proclaimed in the Bible is true.

So, what does this mean for us today?

1. The resurrection of Jesus Christ validates the claim that he is the way, the truth and the life.

2. It gives absolute hope for the future. Jesus tells us, “Because I live, you also will live.” (John 14:19) He also says, “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:2-3)

3. It offers spiritual life right now. By faith, we receive Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. Our lives our transformed and we are given peace.

You are the jury. You are given the opportunity to accept or reject the evidence. Your response will determine your destiny.

There are certainly skeptics in the world whose goal is to refute the resurrection itself or even the existence of Christ. Even though there is enough evidence strong enough for a truly objective person to consider the truth as stated in God’s Word. So, then why do people still stubbornly reject Jesus’ claim?

We are given a clue in John 3:19. “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because there deeds were evil.” People reject the truths of the gospel because they love the darkness. The Light of Christ exposes our life. It reveals the fact that we are full of pride and self-centeredness. Our sinful nature exalts our self over a God. The Light tells us to turn from darkness (our self, our pride) and turn to Christ. We turn because we realize that we have a need we can’t possibly fill on our own – not because Christians don’t have good answers to difficult questions.

For all those who are reading this post and have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, I ask you to come to the Light and receive Christ. For those who already believe, stay strong and do not be afraid or timid to share the truth. Remember, Jesus told us, “I am with you to the very end of the age.”

These thoughts were taken from an excellent series entitled, “Why I Believe” by Chip Ingram.
