Many tend to have a false, selective view of Christian History

OLD
Amongst another one of those big false,  lies  is“ If in the past many supposed that any substantial attachment by Christians to the observance of Jewish customs essentially vanished after the first generation of Jewish followers of Jesus passed away, it is now conceivable that many Christians remained open and even committed to observing the Torah after 70 CE—the year when the Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans.” 
.
For as far as Judaism, Israel, this is what is said in the New Testament.

Matthew 23

38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

Luke 13

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

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.

Galatians 4

27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband

Lies and distortions, taking isolated Bible verses out of context, are major part of the Jewish interpretation of Christianity,  and of Jesus ,  Apostle Paul, and all Christian teachings.. even by the Messianic Jews and most Jews, Muslims even, they do not worship the same God as the Christians do cause they had rejected Jesus Christ as their God.
.
Many  Jews  do view Gentiles, Christians still as morally impure because they  engage  in the other practices, teachings that were deemed immoral by Jewish standards.
.
The Gospel of  Matthew by the Jews  is referred to as  the “most Jewish” gospel of the New Testament, while Luke-Acts, Apostle Paul’s  writings are  viewed as merely a Gentile Christian text, or very much less Jewish in other words.
 .
No Jews or non Jews never the less should still continue to observe the Torah after embracing Jesus as their Messiah.
 .
 The Christian Church is not defined solely by the 4 Gospel of Matthew, Luke and John but is also clearly  more defined by the Book of Acts and Apostle Paul’s writings.
.
Matthew 28:19–20, which appears only in Matthew: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”  Does not include the Torah , or the Noahide laws. Noahide Laws. This  false rabbinic teaching posits that Gentiles need not observe the 613 commandments of the Torah but only abide by seven universal, ethical laws.
 .
Jesus was responsible for the cessation of the Jewish religious practices. Jesus was the first “Christian,” who had come to announce the end of the Torah and Judaism, of Israel as well.  Jesus simply came to fulfill Messianic prophecies contained in the Jewish scriptures, and not to Continue his once Jewishness.
.
Still the  Apostle Paul is  falsely accused of Draining Jesus of his Jewishness  and the false “Blame” for the Christian distancing from Jewish practice has centered around  Paul, the apostle of the Gentiles traditionally. Paul by the Jews  is viewed as an “apostate” from Judaism who rather had founded a new religion, Christianity. In  reality the observance of Jewish customs essentially vanished after the first generation of Jewish,  Gentile Christian  followers of Jesus passed away, especially after 70 CE—the year when the Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed by the  God and Romans.
 .
The Jewishness of Jesus has been gradually resurfacing mainly  in North America mainly  and is contrasted  by the Views held by European Christians. American Christians  tend  to conceive of their faith in Jewish terms and even falsely identify themselves with the Jewish people and story significantly  a lot more over  the  Europeans Christians.. 
 .
“For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 5:20).  And elsewhere, Matthew stresses Jesus statements on the the importance of the Jews in keeping firstly the “moral” or “ethical” requirements of the Torah over their merely keeping the “ritual” commandments of the Jewish Law. The moral or ethical laws dictate how humans should relate to one another. Ritual commandments, on the other hand, refer to those laws that are meant to set the Jews aside as the  chosen people to serve their God which  had  in he past included such things as the observance of the Sabbath, festivals, circumcision, as well as certain purity and dietary laws and all of which still are  not binding on any Christians. Matthew’s Jewish Jesus accuses the Pharisees for neglecting the practice of ethics by focusing on the ritual: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. It is these you ought to have practiced without neglecting the others” (23:23).  Matthew uses the term “weightier matters of the law” to describe the moral commandments of keeping justice, mercy, and faith. The Pharisees  focused  more   on fulfilling “lighter,” ritual commandments such as tithing herbs It is clear in Luke-Acts that Gentile Christians are not expected to observe the Torah in its entirety.  Acts makes this point clear by decreeing that Gentile (male) followers of Jesus do not need to be circumcised but need to “abstain only from things polluted by idols and from fornication and from whatever has been strangled and from blood” (15:20).
.
While there are no statements in the gospel of Luke  any more than in  Matthew that abrogate the observance of dietary laws for Jews all real Christians next, now  are free to eat pork, lobster, or any other animal forbidden for Jewish consumption by the Mosaic Torah (Leviticus 11/Deuteronomy 14).
.
Acts chs. 10–11, rather,  many readers of Luke-Acts did all gather  rightfully to proclaim the end of Jewish dietary laws. Apostle Peter, one of the main disciples of Jesus  in Acts, learns this lesson through a vision in which he sees all kinds of “four-footed creatures and reptiles and birds of the air” lowered from the sky on a sheet (10:11–12). Three times a heavenly voice commands him to slaughter and eat the animals in front of him, but Peter adamantly refuses, claiming that he has “never eaten anything that is profane or unclean” (10:14). The heavenly voice responds that “what God has made clean, you must not call profane” (10:15). Now this  statement literally   announces   the obvious application of the vision, namely, that all animals are now kosher and permissible for consumption.
 .
Luke 16:16: “The law and the prophets were in effect until John came; since then the good news of the kingdom of God is proclaimed, and everyone tries to enter it by force.” Thus the proclamation of the good news of the kingdom of God marks  a new phase in  Jewish history, which is Christianity. The kingdom of God is  proclaimed in Luke-Acts at the expense of the  Jews, Jewish Torah.
 .
No Jewish person in Acts embraces more the past perpetuation of Torah observance like Apostle Paul. Paul had attended  the synagogue on the Sabbath (13:14–15; 14:1, etc.), kept the Jewish festivals such as Shavuot/Pentecost (20:16) and Yom Kippur (27:9), went  to the temple in Jerusalem and had partaken  in its rituals (21:24), affirms his past  fidelity to the Torah and Jewish customs (28:17), and even circumcises Timothy (16:3)! And yet he too  next had gave it all up to be a follower solely of Jesus Christ .
.
Personal Salvation, for all by Jesus Christ  is  achieved without observing the precepts of the Torah that had exclusively applied  only to the Jewish people and which laws they were never able to keep in full  as well. So why would they want to put Christians under these false bondages?
 .
Even these days Jews and Messianic Jews  tend to have a false, selective view of Christianity, History 
Jews, Messianic Jews blame Christians, Gentiles  for their hardships, sufferings. “It is an aggressive , war like stance in the debate over  the Jewish history,”  where both  groups  have been distorting the past of their history. “History is a victim of the current crisis in relations between Jews and and Christianity . The whole question is how much hard evidence does anyone really have to support their too often one sided  presentations  is asked. No one knows what Jewish life was even at the time of Christ even cause the Romans had destroyed the Jewish books and Libraries.. “ The Jews do want everyone to think that everyone else wise is in the wrong, abusive,  corrupt,  influenced.” Selective memory, false Biblical studies,  “wars of historical memory” are being waged by the Jews with the Christians, Gentiles  where History is increasingly being interpreted in different ways to suit their own personal Jewish views . Any negative  statements that comes about  as to the Jews is now still being  falsely viewed as being anti Semitic,  as Gentile Genocide  with the “intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or the whole Jewish  religious group,” and not necessarily by killing them, but also by  any opposition of the  PAST Jewish acts, writing, history.
 .
Luke-Acts still remind us that the ex Jewish and Gentile  followers of Jesus  both had played a prominent role in early Christian history, even after the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE, when  all Christians,  now non Jewish ones too were  becoming the dominant force and voice within   Christianity.
 .
In reality  many of the early  History of  Christian works, those the church fathers wrote or preached from the pulpit  have been preserved and they were  mostly  opposed to Judaism and the observance of Jewish custom. . As late as the fourth century of the Common Era, John Chrysostom, was vociferously   convincing  his Christian parishioners in Antioch not to attend services at synagogues and not to observe Jewish festivals .
.
No Jews or non Jews should continue to observe the Torah especially after embracing Jesus as their Messiah.
.
 Today’s   Apostolic leaders bring another challenge of the false Christian Zionists  who have made a “deal with the devil” in accepting  Messianic Christian Zionism..

Desolate

Destruction of Jerusalem by Ercole de' Roberti

Of all the words of Jesus recorded in the Bible, about twenty-five percent of his teaching was devoted to prophecy concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, the scattering of the Jewish people worldwide, and the end of the world. Instead of listening to the lies of mere men and demons do read Jesus’ words in their entirety, in the Bible itself firstly. Not one Bible Prophecies Endorses Israel’s present Behavior, land conquests. The nation of Israel was blessed when it obeyed God’s instructions, and it was next cursed when it disobeyed. The context of Jesus’ Olivet Discourse was about the pending desolation of Jerusalem and the Jews, and NOT about even the Gentile end times.

In Matthew chapter 23 Jesus was addressing the Pharisees. He called down “woes” upon them: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” because they shut up the kingdom of heaven (vs. 13), because they devour widows’ houses (vs. 14), because they make disciples for hell (vs. 15), because they elevate gold above the temple (vss. 16-22), because they engage in nit picking while neglecting the weightier matters of the law (vss. 23-24), and because they appear outwardly clean but are inwardly corrupt (vss. 25-33). He then reminded the Pharisees that they are “the sons of them who killed the prophets” and called them “ye generation of vipers.” (vs. 31, 33) After foretelling that they would persecute and kill his disciples the same way their fathers killed the prophets, “that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zechariah, son of Barachiah,” Jesus concluded with the sentence above: “Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.” Clearly this was the generation that stood there in Jesus’ presence, the generation he was addressing in person. The punishment for their hypocrisy and their wickedness would come upon that very generation. Note Jesus’ pronouncement to the same Jewish religious leaders that “your house is left unto you desolate” (Matt. 23:38 KJV)

In Matthew 23, Jesus condemned the Scribes and Pharisees and told them that all of the righteous blood that they had shed would come on them.

“Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?

Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.

Luke 19:41-44, Jesus and His disciples approached Jerusalem and He told them that the Jews enemies would surround them, and level them and the temple. “Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

Matthew 22:1-7 says, “And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.” ‘ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.”

Because of the Jews abominations against God, He made them desolate. Because of all of the Jews abominations, including delivering Jesus up to be killed, and then killing His disciples, Jesus poured out His wrath on the Jews, through the Roman army. A total of 1.1 million Jews died, and 97,000 Jews were taken captive and sold as slaves.

Too many demon led Christian evangelicals, led by their false Zionist theology still falsely are helping the Jews conquer the Middle East.and falsely view it as their Christian duty to assist the Israelis to kill and subjugate the Arab and Palestinian peoples.. They lie that “God needs an earthly temple in Jerusalem,” say Jewish Zionist and Gentile Judaizers; he requires a “house” and a throne here on this planet. The Zionists and Judaizers claim that Christians also need a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, a holy place where Christians can celebrate Jewish feast days, sacrifice animals, and carry out Old Covenant Jewish rituals and ceremonies. Jews and Christian evangelicals (Judaizers) are eager to establish their own worldly version of the “Kingdom of God.” They are scheming and plotting to rebuild the ancient Jewish temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. And anyone who dares suggest they are going in the wrong direction, is falsely labelled by them as an anti-Semitic Jew-hater. Corrupted Jews, with all their excess human pride. They fancy themselves God’s Chosen People and imagine that their earthly city, Jerusalem, and their earthly kingdom, Israel, is where God seeks to dwell forever. They really think falsely that the Messiah will inhabit a Jewish flesh-and-blood body and sit on a throne built by human hands. But Jesus prophesied that earthly Jerusalem would be destroyed and the temple thrown down stone by stone. And so it was, in 70 AD. Revelation 11:7-8 says that Jerusalem, the Great City, wherein our Lord was crucified, is spiritually “Sodom and Egypt.” Think of it! Christian Zionists, Jews disregarding everything that God said and did, are still obsessed and consumed as they vainly pull out all stops to build here on earth a modern-day Jewish version of “Sodom and Egypt.” but still God hates their pride, Idolatry, divorce so God’s judgement against Israel remains so “Jesus has taken the Kingdom of God from you and given it to another nation bringing forth fruits?” Matthew 21:43

23:37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. 38″Behold, your house is being left to you desolate! 39″For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!'”

See, the day of the LORD is coming –a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger– to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.

Malachi 4:1
“Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the LORD Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them.

Isaiah 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be on every one that is proud …

1 Kings 9:7
then I will cut off Israel from the land I have given them and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. Israel will then become a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples.

“I have destroyed nations; their strongholds are demolished. I have left their streets deserted, with no one passing through. Their cities are laid waste; they are deserted and empty.

Jeremiah 7:8″Behold, you are trusting in deceptive words to no avail. 9″Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery and swear falsely, and offer sacrifices to Baal and walk after other gods that you have not known, 10then come and stand before Me in this house, which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered!’– that you may do all these abominations?…

Isaiah 1:13
Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations– I cannot bear your worthless assemblies.

Jeremiah 1:16
I will pronounce my judgments on my people because of their wickedness in forsaking me, in burning incense to other gods and in worshiping what their hands have made.

Jeremiah 11:17T he LORD Almighty, who planted you, has decreed disaster for you, because the people of both Israel and Judah have done evil and aroused my anger by burning incense to Baal.

Jeremiah 19:4
For they have forsaken me and made this a place of foreign gods; they have burned incense in it to gods that neither they nor their ancestors nor the kings of Judah ever knew, and they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent.

Ezekiel 5:11 Therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, because you have defiled my sanctuary with all your vile images and detestable practices, I myself will shave you; I will not look on you with pity or spare you.

Malachi 3:5 “So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty.

Jesus, in the Synoptic Gospels, went to a fig tree looking for food to eat (Matthew 21:18-22; Mark 11:12-14, 20-21). When he saw that there were no figs on the tree he cursed it. There is a very reasonable explanation why Jesus cursed the fig tree .  Jesus  cursing of the fig tree is a played or acted out parable, one which warned the nation of Israel of it’s impending  final judgment. ‘The time of the fig is not yet,’ says Mark, for it was just before Passover, about six weeks before the fully-formed fig appears. The fact that Mark adds these words shows that he knew what he was talking about. When the fig leaves appear about the end of March, they are accompanied by a crop of small knobs, called taqsh by the Arabs, a sort of fore-runner of the real figs. These taqsh are eaten by peasants and others when hungry. They drop off before the real fig is formed. But if the leaves appear unaccompanied by taqsh, there will be no figs that year. So it was evident to our Lord, when He turned aside to see if there were any of these taqsh on the fig-tree to assuage His hunger for the time being, that the absence of the taqsh meant that there would be no figs when the time of figs came. For all its fair foliage, it was a fruitless and a hopeless tree.”

figtree

Jesus   discovered that the fig tree had no fruit on it and cursed the tree saying, “May no fruit ever come from you again!”  Undeniably a fig tree is  used symbolically to represent Israel in the Scriptures. Jesus was effectively denouncing Israel’s worship of God. With the cursing of the fig tree, He was symbolically denouncing Israel as a nation and,  even denouncing  all unfruitful “Jews ” (that is, people who profess to be godly but have no evidence of a relationship with Christ). The presence of a fruitful fig tree was considered to be a symbol of blessing and prosperity for the nation of Israel. Likewise, the absence or death of a fig tree symbolizes God’s  judgment and rejection.

Micah 6:16You have observed the statutes of Omri and all the practices of Ahab’s house; you have followed their traditions. Therefore I will give you over to ruin and your people to derision; you will bear the scorn of the nations.

Jeremiah 26:6 then I will make this house like Shiloh and this city a curse among all the nations of the earth

2 Chronicles 29:8 Therefore, the anger of the LORD has fallen on Judah and Jerusalem; he has made them an object of dread and horror and scorn, as you can see with your own eyes.

Isaiah 65:15: You will leave your name for my chosen ones to use in their curses; the Sovereign LORD will put you to death, but to his servants he will give another name.

Jeremiah 44:  21″As for the smoking sacrifices that you burned in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, you and your forefathers, your kings and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them and did not all this come into His mind? 22″So the LORD was no longer able to endure it, because of the evil of your deeds, because of the abominations which you have committed; thus your land has become a ruin, an object of horror and a curse, without an inhabitant, as it is this day. 23″Because you have burned sacrifices and have sinned against the LORD and not obeyed the voice of the LORD or walked in His law, His statutes or His testimonies, therefore this calamity has befallen you, as it has this day.”…

“I will take away their harvest, declares the LORD. There will be no grapes on the vine. There will be no figs on the tree, AND THEIR LEAVES WILL WITHER. What I have given them will be taken from them.’” Jeremiah 8:13

Acts 7:48-49, “Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, HEAVEN IS MY THRONE, AND EARTH IS MY FOOTSTOOL: WHAT HOUSE WILL YE BUILD ME? SAITH THE LORD: OR WHAT IS THE PLACE OF MY REST?”

The Sin Of Worshiping The Land Of Israel Instead is Idolatry,  as idolizing and worshiping of Jerusalem, Israel and the Jews is evil in the sight of God.  Especially since Israel today is a shameful nation that has abandoned the sole God of the Bible, Jesus Christ. It  is demonism  that are  inspiring people to idolize Israel and the Jews. You are now  also God, Bible IGNORANT if you do still think that God blesses any Christians who support a wicked, Christ-rejecting people, Nation of Israel. The land of Israel itself and the nation still  has nothing to do with our salvation from death and sin.!  Jesus alone now died, was buried and rose up three days later for our justification. Defending Israel is NOT even a man’s job. Defending Israel is NOT a function of the New Testament Church. In fact, this may come as a shock to you, but the Bible says that Jerusalem and the Jews will be attacked and defeated, continually  as we often hear about it too, until the Lord returns to earth, thus ending “the times of the Gentiles.” Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Israel today is not the fulfillment of any New Testament Biblical prophecy. as well.Only a total jackass, fool would believe otherwise.. Don’t be fooled  as God is not concerned with restoring Israel to the Holy Land anymore . Jesus told the Jewish rabbis of His time that the kingdom of God had been taken away from them forever. Zionism  itself now still has no need, purpose, nor concern for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Salvation is of the Lord. Salvation came through the Jews, not by the Jews. A Jew must be born-again or he or she cannot go to Heaven. Nicodemus was a Jewish leader, a Pharisee. Jesus warned Nicodemus that he needed to be born again or else he couldn’t enter into the kingdom of God (John 3:5-7). Hebrews 13:5 promises that God never forsakes His own. If you are unsaved,  do refuse to accept Jesus Christ as th Lord of your life, it is you alone that have already forsaken God and rather  now next Hell, the Lake of Fire will be your eternal home.  https://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/hell-is-real/

Christians alone are God’s Chosen People, and Christians are His Holy Nation. Now all who are Christ’s Chosen are the “people of God” and are “precious” in His sight, whether they be Jew or Gentile, German, African, Asian, Latino, Arab, English, or Italian. The Apostle Peter wisely addressed these matters. In I Peter 2: 4-6, we read that Christians—not Jews as a race—are “chosen of God and precious.” Peter instructed Christians:

“…ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people… Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God.”

“Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: for our God is a consuming fire.”; (Hebrews 12:28-29);

“‘All power in heaven and on earth is given to me. So go and make followers of all people in the world. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey everything that I have taught you, and I will be with you always, even until the end of this age.’” —Matthew 28:18-20 NCV

Who lied and told you that Jesus himself had spoken Hebrew mainly, firstly?

peace

The Jewish Messiah’s given name  at Birth also was Jesus Christ, a Greek name and not a Hebrew name. 

.

The old Testament used in the JERSUALEM Jewish temple  at the time of Jesus Christ was  in Greek – Ever hear of the Greek translation of the Old testament, the Septuagint –  Septuagint (sometimes abbreviated LXX) is the name given to the Greek translation of the Jewish Scriptures. The Septuagint has its …”The earliest version of the Old Testament Scriptures which is extant, or of which we possess any certain knowledge, is the translation executed at Alexandria in the third century before the Christian era: this version has been so habitually known by the name of the SEPTUAGINT “The Septuagint (from the Latin septuaginta, meaning “seventy,” and frequently referred to by the roman numerals LXX) is the Greek translation of the Old Testament. The name derives from the tradition that it was made by seventy (or seventy-two) Jewish scholars at Alexandria, Egypt during the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus (285-247 B.C.). it is not surprising that the Apostles should have used it more often than not in making citations from the Old Testament. The Jews upheld the Septuagint very strongly for the first 300 years as the Word of God, our blessed Lord and the apostles habitually quoted from it,

.

WHY IS IT THAT SOME PEOPLE FALSELY DENY THE TRUTH THAT JESUS DID NOT SPEAK HEBREW  BUT GREEK AND WHAT IS THEIR ACTUAL AGENDA FOR DOING SO NOW TOO

.

AND WHO HAD FIRSTLY TOLD YOU that Jesus himself had spoken Hebrew? Where is that found in the whole New testament? Do give us all the verse.. .

.

Jesus, His own father spoke Greek . . You might say didn’t he speak Hebrew, the primary language of the Old testament Hebrew Scriptures? But what is the language of the New testament as the New Testament Gospels are preserved in Greek manuscripts, as Jesus himself solely spoke Greek.

.

THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN GREEK It is vital to understand that the New Testament was written in Koiné Greek, which was the common spoken and written language for hundreds of years in Palestine and the Roman Empire before the days of Jesus and His apostles. Greek was the universal language of commerce and trade.This is the language that Jesus, the apostles and early New Testament Church used. .

.

Some erroneously teach that the New Testament was originally written in the Hebrew language and was later translated into Greek. Because they have not studied the history of Palestine, they fail to realize that Hebrew had ceased to be spoken by the Jews many centuries before the New Testament era.

.

Under the Babylonian and Medo-Persian empires, 640-333 BC, Aramaic exerted the greatest influence. The writings of Daniel, who lived and worked during the time of the Chaldean and Persian Empires, show the extensive influence of Syriac and Chaldee, which were dialects of Aramaic. The Persians ruled Palestine from the time of Daniel and Ezra until its invasion by Alexander the Great in 333 BC. From that time, the influence of Aramaic was overshadowed by the influence of Greek. Samuel G. Green, a renowned Biblical scholar, described this significant change as follows: “… as a direct result of the conquests of Alexander the Great and his successors, the Greek tongue had been carried into almost all the countries of the civilized world, and had become the medium of commercial intercourse, the language of the courts, and, in fact, the universal literary tongue of the provinces afterwards absorbed in the Roman Empire. The natives of Alexandria and of Jerusalem , of Ephesus, and even of Rome, alike adopted it; everywhere with characteristic modifications, but substantially the same. Hence it had become a necessity to translate the Old Testament Scriptures into Greek….This translation, or the Septuagint, naturally became the basis of all subsequent Jewish Greek literature, and in particular of the New Testament ” (Green, Handbook to the Grammar of the Greek New Testament , pp. 155-156, emphasis added). . The Influence of Greek in Jewish Literature As Green stated, the Greek translation of the Old Testament was followed by other Jewish Greek literature. Rabbi B. Z. Wacholder is one of the leading scholars in Jewish Greek literature of the period from Alexander to Christ. Martin Hengel, a Biblical scholar of modern Germany, wrote of Wacholder’s opinions of this era: “Around the middle of the second century BCE [nearly two hundred years before the New Testament was written] the Jewish Palestinian priest Eupolemus , son of John, whom Judas [Maccabaeus] had probably sent to Rome with a delegation in 161 BCE, composed in Greek a Jewish history with the title ‘About the Kings of Judah’… B.Z. Wacholder, who analyses this work, goes very thoroughly in the last chapter of his book into further Jewish-Palestinian literature in Greek and traces it down to Justus of Tiberias and Josephus. In his view, its origin lies in the priestly aristocracy , the leading representatives of which had always also had a certain degree of Greek education from the second or even third century BCE” (Hengel, The “Hellenization” of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , p. 23, ). Greek was the language of Jerusalem in New Testament times—the language not only of the priestly aristocracy but also of business and commerce. Its influence was most noticeable in the city of Jerusalem. We again have a good deal of epigraphical evidence from historical inscriptions] to support this ( Ibid. , p. 9). . The importance of Greek in Jewish life is evidenced by the fact that the temple had a fully staffed Greek secretariat. Such offices were vital to the diplomatic, commercial and banking interest s of the nation. Hengel believed that an institution like the temple must have had a well-staffed Greek secretariat for more than two centuries (Ibid., p. 17, emphasis added). It was not difficult to find Greek-speaking Jews to serve as members of the temple secretariat. Many Levitical and priestly families had contact with Greek-speaking areas outside Palestine, and some families lived in these areas. The most aristocratic of the priestly families”the old Zadok ite family of the Oniads”lived in Egypt. The high priests that Herod appointed came from this and other Greek-speaking families. Herods selection of these high priests illustrates the active communication and freedom of movement that was taking place between Palestine and other lands: There was a constant and lively interchange with all the centres of the Diaspora [the lands where the Jews were dispersed]. Thus Herod first brought the priest Ananel (Josephus, Antiquities 15.22, 34, 39ff., 51) from Babylonia and later the priest Simon, son of Boethus, from Alexandria to Jerusalem, both presumably from the old Zadokite family of the Oniads, in order to appoint them high priests. Boethus could have been a descendant of Onias IV of Leontopolis who fl ed to Egypt in 164 BCE: that would explain the later status of his family in Jerusalem. The successful Simon, son of Boethus, who married a daughter, Mariam, to Herod, succ eeded in founding the richest high priestly family after the clan of Annas and at the same time a particular group among the Sadducees, the Boethusians, who were evidently close to the Herodian rulers (Hengel, The Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , p. 14). The high priests who returned to Jerusalem from Alexandria were Greek- speaking. The city of Alexandria, named fo r Alexander the Great, was renowned as a center of Greek culture and learning. It was the Jews of Alexandria who in earlier times had translated the Hebrew text into Greek for the Septuagint. When the families of the high priests returned to Jerusalem, they c ontinued to speak Greek. As Hengel wrote, these influential upper-cla ss families were not the only Greek-speaking Jews in Jerusalem: Be this as it may, we can assume th at Greek was spoken among the families of these aristocrats who had returned. It will also be the case that Greek was no less established among the leading families of Jerusalem than in the scriptoria and the bazaars of the city or at the tables of the money changers in the temple forecourt  (Ibid., p. 14, emphasis added). . In New Testament times, Greek was spoke n not only by the elite of Jerusalem but also by those who copied manuscripts in the scriptoria, by the middle-class businessmen who ran the bazaars, and by the bankers who served as money changers in the temple. The monetary exchange that was centered at the temple and all business transactions in Jerusalem required the speaking of Greek. This was the language of business and commerce in every province of the Roman Empire, including Palestine. , Greek Was Spoken in Galilee in New Testament Times While Jerusalem was the commercial, cultural and banking center of Palestine, the region of Galilee did not fall far behind. Galilee was perfectly positioned at the crossroads of trade entering and exiting Palestine. The entire region was bustling with 3 commerce, and the language of that trade and commerce was Greek. Hengel relates that by the time of Christ, the cities of Sepphoris and Tiberias in Galilee had Greek schools of renown. As carpenters, Joseph and Jesus might have worked in Sepphoris, which was only four or five miles from Jesus home. The Greek- speaking city of Tiberias, center of a thriving fishing industry, was near their home. These two cities of Galilee were both prominent in the Palestine of Jesus day. As centers of commerce and trade, they depended on merchants and tradesmen who could speak fluent Greek. Their schools ranked among the best. As Hengel related, the training received in these schools of Galilee was on a par with the great institutions of higher learning in Antioch and Alexandria: Wacholder believes that the rhetorical training which Justus received in the Tiberias of Herod Antipas and Agrippa II was on a par with the ˜cosmopolitan Greek of Antioch or Alexandria, whereas Jerusalem could not offer Josephus educational possibilities of the same high quality (Ibid., p. 24). The historian Josephus, who belonged to one of the leading priestly families of Jerusalem, spoke Greek; but his Greek was far from the quality of the Greek spoken and written by Justus, who had studied Greek at Tiberias. As the following quote relates, the linguistic and rhetorical education of Justus of Tiberias was far superior to that of Josephus of Jerusalem: Therefore Josephus stresses at the end of his Antiquities that his Jewish education was more perfect than his Greek, and that he still found difficulties in speaking impeccable Greek ( Antt . 20.262-4)….Presumably he also refers to this deficiency because his rival and opponent Justus of Tiberias had had a better linguistic and rhetorical education….The patriarch Photius of Constantinople (c . 820-886) still praised the stylistic precision and evocative character of Justus history of the Jewish kings, which extended from Moses to the death of Agrippa II , the last Jewish king (Ibid., p. 24). . Like Josephus, all members of the priestly families were trained in both Hebrew and Greek. Hebrew continued to be spoken by the priests in the temple and the Scribes in the synagogues for religious events and discussions only. When at home with their families or conducting business in the market, they spoke Greek. The common people, who had long before lost their knowledge of Hebrew, spoke Aramaic in general, but those who dealt in commerce and trade also spoke Greek. According to Hengel, Judaea, Samaria and Galilee were bilingual (or better, trilingual) areas. While Aramaic was the vernacular of ordinary people, and Hebrew the … language of religious worship and of scribal discussion, Greek had largely be come established as the linguistic medium for trade, commerce and administration (Ibid., p. 8). . Historical inscriptions attest to the fact that Galilee in the early Christian era was a bilingual society. Hengel states: In economic terms Galilee was to a large extent dependent on the completely Hellenized Phoenician cities, especially Acco/Ptolemais and Tyre. The great cemetery in Beth-shearim between Nazareth and Haifa, which comes from between the second and fourth centuries CE, contains predominantly Greek inscriptions. Some of those buried there come from the Phoenician metropolises. After the death of R. Jehuda han-Nasi (after 200 ) the tombs of Beth-shearim took on a more than regional significance, like the Holy City before 70 CE. The marked increase in Greek inscriptions compared to those in Hebrew and Aramaic (218 to 28) is bound up with the further development of the process of Hellenization in the second to the fourth centuries CE … (Ibid., pp. 15-16) . Hengel points out the significance of these inscriptions, which supports the earlier findings of Schlatter and contradicts the opinion of the History of Religions school: In the meantime we also have two bilingual inscriptions from Judaea and Galilee, quite apart from the large number of testimonies to use of the Greek language. Almost ninety years ago Schlatter had a completely correct view of the linguistic situation, a clearer one 4 than the representatives of the History of Religions school. The constant discovery of new inscriptions conf irms this picture of a fundamentally multilingual society. Schlatter already drew atte ntion to this situation in his famous study on ˜The Language and Homeland of the Fourth Evangelist (which is in no way taken seriously enough): ˜Here too the inscriptions are the decisive authority for assessing the linguistic question (of a bilingual situation, M.H.)  (Ibid., p. 9). . Evidence That Greek Was Spoken by Jesus and the Apostles In addition to the above evidence, the scholar Samuel G. Green wrote concerning the language spoken by Jesus and the apostles: It was in the Greek of the Septuagint thus modified that, in all probability, our Lord and His apostles generally spoke. The dialect of Galilee (Matt. xxvi. 73) was not a corrupt Hebrew, but a provincial Greek (Green, Handbook to the Grammar of the Greek Testament , p. 156). The Gospel accounts verify that Jesus and His disciples, who were Galileans, spoke the Greek dialect of Galilee and not a corrupted Hebrew; hence Jesus words to the scribes and Pharisees at the temple: Therefore, Jesus said to them, ˜If God were your Father, you would love Me, because I proceeded forth and came from God. For I have not come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why don’t you understand My speech ? Because you cannot bear to hear My words  (John 8:42-43, emphasis added). In recording Jesus words, John shows that the scribes and Pharisees had difficulty understanding His Galilean dialect. . The Pharisees had a problem with the Greek dialect of Jesus and His apostles throughout their ministries. As further evidence of this, Matthew comments that it was Peters Galilean Greek that gave him away during Jesus trial: Now Peter was sitting outside in the court; and a maid came to him, saying, ˜You also were with Jesus the Galilean. But he denied it before everyone, saying, ˜I dont know what you are talking about. And after he went out into the porch, another maid saw him and said to those there, ˜This man was also with Jesus the Nazarean. Then again he denied it with an oath, saying , ˜I do not know the man. After a little while , those who were standing by came to Peter and said, ˜Truly, you also are one of them, for even your speech shows that you are  (Matt. 26:69-73, emphasis added). As the Greek in Peters epistles testifies, he was speaking and writing a better Greek than those at Jerusalem. The Greek they spoke would be the Greek that would carry the gospel message to the world and would be recorded for all time in the New Testament. The very names of Jesus apostles are Greek: Among the twelve disciples of Jesus, two, Andrew and Philip, bear purely Gr eek names, and in the case of two others the original Greek name has been Aramaized. Thaddaeus ( tadda’j ) is probably a short form of Theodotus (or somethi ng similar), and Bartholomew ( Bartholomaios = bar- talmaj ) derives from (bar) Ptolemaios. The blind beggar Bartimaeus (Bar-Timaios) in Jericho, who becomes a follower of Jesus, can also be mentioned in this connection (Hengel, The ˜Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , p. 16). Even the areas that Jesus disciples came from bear witness to their speaking Greek: The information that Simon Peter, Andrew and Philip came from Bethsaida (John 1.44) could perhaps have hi storical value, since Her ods son Philip refounded this place soon after his accession as the polis Julias (before 2 BCE) in honour of Augustus daughter Julia, and it was ther efore more markedly ˜Hellenized than the surrounding villages…. . At all events, Simon Peter must have been bilingual, since otherwise he could not have engaged so successfully in missionary work outside JudaeaAs we find in historical records and in Scripture, those who responded to the preaching of the gospel were primarily Greek-speaking people. It is logical, therefore, to conclude that Jesus also spoke to them in Greek. Scripture attests to the fact that many early converts were Greek speaking: There are many references to what were in all probability bilingual members of the [early Christian] community from the upper and middle classes: mention should be made of Johanna, the wife of Chuza, of Herod Antipas, i.e., his steward; the tax farmers, like Zacchaeus in Jericho; then men like Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathaea. The mysterious Manaen (Menachem) in Antioch, whose mother is perhaps mentioned by Papias, the boyhood friend of Herod Antipas, Mary and her son John Mark, the relations of Barnabas, Silas-Silvanus, Barsabbas Justus, who similarly emerges again in Papias, the prophet Agabus and others may similarly belong to this milieu. Their circle is enlarged by Disapora Jews resident in Jerusalem like Barnabas from Cyprus and Simon of Cyrene with his sons Alexander and Rufus. Simons sons and his mother were perhaps known later in the Christian community in Rome, and Jason of Cyprus, Paul’s host (Act s 21:16), whose mother tongue was already Greek, even if they still understood Aramaic or had relearned it (Ibid., pp. 17-18). 5 with Cornelius (Ibid., p. 16). . The Followers of Jesus as  we find in historical records and in Scripture, those who responded to the preaching of the gospel were primarily Greek-speaking people. It is logical, therefore, to conclude that Jesus also spoke to them in Greek. Scripture attests to the fact that many early converts were Greek speaking: . Early Christians in Jerusalem Spoke Greek.  Luke records that some of the earliest members of the church at Jerusalem were Greek-speaking Jews. Hengels statement concerning the rapid growth of Christianity in this community follows: What was decisive for the subsequent course of primitive Christianity, however, was the amazingly rapid and intensive effect of the new message on the Greek-speaking Hellenists in Jerusalem….Here we have that social stratum in Jerusalem the significance of which … has so far been neglected. The circle of Christians who came from it cannot have been all that small, otherwise their missionary activity in Jerusalem would not have provoked so much of a stir and caused such offense  (Hengel, The ˜Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , pp. 43-44). In the book of Acts, Luke gives us insight into this early community of Greek- speaking Jews from which the first evangelists were chosen and from which the gospel spread to all Judea. Luke wrote: Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a complaint by the Greeks [ KJV ˜Grecians refers to Greek- speaking Jews] against the Hebrews [Jews whose native tongue was Aramaic], because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. And after calling the multitude of disciples to them , the twelve said, ˜It is not proper for us to leave the Word of God in order to wait on tables. Therefore, brethren, search out from among yourselves seven men of good repute, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the Word. And this declaration was pleasing to all the multitude; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit; and Philip; and Prochorus; and Nicanor; and Timon; and Parmenas; and Nicolas, who was a proselyte of Antioch. And they set them before the apostles; and after praying, they laid their hands on them. And the Word of God spread, and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem was multiplied exceedingly, and a great multitude of the priests were obedient to the faith (Acts 6:1-7). All seven of those chosen in Lukes account bear Greek names. These Hellenized Jews spoke Greek as their native language as attested to by Hengel, who gives us 6 linguistic evidence: In contrast to the use of ˜Hellenizing and ˜Hellenism stamped by culture and intellectual history which is customary among theologians, and which ultimately goes back to Droysen, in antiquity the verb and the rare noun­– referred almost exclusively to language . Only rarely did these words have a comprehensive meaning relating to culture and civilization”with one significant exception to which we shall have to return”and there is evidence of this only in the post- Christian period. In Christian literature fro m the third-fourth century CE the term and the other terms associated with it then generally came to mean ˜pagan. Before that, both terms primarily and in the first instance denoted an impeccable command of the Greek language. This also gives us a fairly clear criterion for distinction in this investigation : ˜Hellenistic Jews and Jewish Christians are (in the real, original meaning of the word) those w hose mother tongue was Greek, in contrast to the Jews in Palestine and in the Babylonian Diaspora who originally spoke Aramaic. It is in this way, in terms of mother tongue, that Luke understands the distinction between´ and … in Acts 6.1 (cf. 9.29). The mother- (or main) language of the´ is Greek and that of the …Aramaic. However, we meet these two groups in Jerusalem itself, in the Jewish metropolis of the Holy Land”and that goes against the usual dividing line. It is too easily forgotten that in the time of Jesus, Greek had already been established as a language for more than three hundred years and already had a long and varied history behind it. . As early as the third century [BC] in different parts of Palestine, we have a whole series of testimonies to Greek as a language, and they are slowly but steadily continuing to in crease in number. The Greek language had already long been accepted not only in the former Philistine or Phoenician areas on the coast and (in the third century BCE) in the ˜G raeco-Macedonian cities in the interior, but also (though not so intensively) in areas settled by Jews and Sa maritans (Hengel, The ˜Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , pp. 7-8). Hengel believes that because Greek wa s spoken almost exclusively among this group of Hellenist Jews in Jerusalem, Jesus and Hi s apostles must have evangelized them in Greek: During the lifetime of Jesus, the message of Jesus also reached Diaspora Jews in Jerusalem who almost only spoke Greek or spoke it exclusively ; it was from among them that that group of Hellenists was recruited which separated because of its worship in Greek and as a special group in the community became significant in Jerusalem with such amazing rapidity. John 12.20f. could be a later reflection of this transition. Perhaps John 4.38 is a reference to their mission in Samaria (Acts 8.4ff.). outside Palestine in Antioch or elsewhere. In other words, the roots of the ˜Jewish- Christian/Hellenistic or more precisely Greek-speaking Jewish Christian community in which the message of Jesus was formulated in Greek for the first time clearly extend back to the very earliest community in Jerusalem , and accordingly the first linguistic development of its kerygma [p reaching of the gospel] and its Christology [the study of Christ] must have already take n place there (Ibid., p. 18, emphasis added). 7 certainly and Ashdod probably they outnumbered the Hellenized Gentile population. Philip, who came from the group around Stephen, may have preached primarily in Greek in the coastal plain and particularly in Caesarea. That Greek was the principal language in these cities is again confirmed by Jewish epitaphs and synagogue inscriptions (Ibid., p. 14). It is evident that Paul, whom God select ed to preach to the Gentiles, also spoke Greek. Luke recorded that shortly after Saul’s conversion, he became involved in a dispute with the Greek-speaking Jews of Jerusalem (Acts 9:26-31). In his epistle to the Philippians, Paul described himself as a Hebrew of Hebrews (Phil. 3:5). Paul had been trained at the feet of Gamaliel, the leading rabbi of that period in Jewish history, and Paul was fully capable of speaking Hebrew to the Pharisaic Jews of Jerusalem (Acts 21:40). However, Paul did not customarily speak Hebrew. He was equally knowledgeable in the Greek language, as the same passage in the book of Acts shows (Acts 21:37-39). Paul could not have preached throughout Asia without this ability to speak Greek. Thus the records of the New Testament demonstrate that the preaching of the gospel was carried out almost exclusively in Greek. . The Gospel Was Recorded in Greek .The books of the New Testament were written between 26 and 96 AD, a period of almost seventy years. As internal evidence reveals, Jesus disciples recorded His message and began to circulate these writings throughout Palestine and the Empire at a very early date. These documents were later collected into the Gospel accounts” Matthews account may have appeared as early as 35 AD; Mark wrote his account shortly after, in 42 AD, and Luke wrote his account around 59 AD. The Gospel of John also was written about 42 AD. In 50 AD Paul wrote the first of his epistle s that would appear in Scripture. The rest of Paul’s epistles were written between 51 and 67 AD. The epistle of James was written around 40-41 AD. The epistles of Pe ter were written between 63 and 66 AD. Jude was written sometime around 67 AD. The letters of I, II and III John were written about 63-64 AD. The book of Hebrews was written from Rome about 61 AD. Thus the basic canon of the New Testament was completed by the time the Jewish Wars began” that is, about 66 AD. The book of Revelation, the final book of the New Testament, was written by the aged apostle John about 95-96 AD. The early New Testament text was copied and preserved by the brethren in Asia Minor. It was this text that was generally adopted by Christians in the 4th century as the text of the New Testament. From that time forward, it has been known as the Byzantine text. The Byzantine text, of which the King James Version is a translation, is the most authoritative Greek text of the New Testament. Its role as the leading Greek text dates back to the beginning of the Byzantine period, for which the text is named: The Byzantine text is found in the vast majority of the Greek New Testament manuscripts. It is called Byzantine because it was the Greek New Testament text in general use throughout the greater part of the Byzantine Period (312-1453). . For many centuries before the Protestant Reformation this Byzantine text was the text of the entire Greek Church, and for more than three centuries after the Reformation it was the text of the entire Protestant Church. Even today it is the text which most Protestants know best, since the King James Version and other early Protestant translations were made from it (Hills, The King James Version Defended , p. 40). As Hills explains, the authenticity of the Byzantine text is supported by a history dating back to the apostolic era: This general trend in the Greek Church toward the Byzantine (true) text first evidenced itself in Antioch and Asia Minor.. . Some claim that the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew and then translated into Greek. However, the record s of early church history do not support this assertion. Tatian, Papias , Tertullian and Irenaeus, to name but a few writers of the early church, describe the original writings a nd quote from them. Yet not a single quote is taken from a Hebrew text”all ar e taken from Greek texts. Although Papias asserts that Matthew compiled his early reports in Hebrew, no evidence is given. Early translations of the New Testament are all based on Greek texts. The Harmony of Tatian , translated in 170 AD, is based on a Greek original, as is The Muratorian Canon . The Old Latin version translated in 180 AD is based on a Greek original. Early Gothic, Egyptian, Ethiopian, Armenian and Palestinian versions are all based on Greek originals. Even the Aramaic versions of the New Testament are translations from the Greek (see The Books and the Parchments , by F. F. Bruce, p. 189). . No evidence of a Hebrew original has been found in all the centuries that have followed the writing of the New Testament. . Matthews and Lukes use of terms known to the Greek-speaking community of Jesus day contradicts the claim that their Gospels were not written until later generations and verifies that they wrote in Greek to an audience that understood Greek. From the beginning of Mathews Gospel, it is evident that he was not writing to a Hebrew- speaking people. The following passage from Matthew illustrates this: And the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: Now His moth er Mary had been betrothed to Joseph; but before they came together, she was found to be with child of the Holy Spirit. And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man , and not willing to expose her publicly, was planning to divorce her secretly. But as he pondered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, ˜Joseph, so n of David, do not be afraid to take Mary to be your wife, because that which ha s been begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she shall give birth to a son, and you shall call His name Jesus; for He shall save His people from their sins. Now all this came to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, ˜Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall give birth to a son, and they sh all call His name Emmanuel; which is, being interpreted, ˜God with us  (Matt. 1:18-23). The name Emmanuel is a transliteration of the Greek which is a transliteration of the Hebrew . The fact that Matthew had to interpret the meaning of this Hebrew name illustrates that he was writing in Greek to a Greek- speaking audience. Further evidence that Matthew wrote in Greek to a people who spoke Greek, and not in Hebrew, is furnished by two grammatical structures unique to the Greek: the articular infinitive and the genitive absolute. Neither of these grammatical structures has a comparable structure in Hebrew. Matthews use of the articular infinitive offers absolute evidence that his Gospel was written in Greek. In English, the word to is always used with the infinitive form of the verb, as in to be, to come, and to speak. The Greek infinitive is similar to the English infinitive unless it is preceded by the de finite article the. When the definite article the is used, the infinitive is known as an articular infinitive . In New Testament Greek, when the articular infinitive is combined with a preposition, it limits the infinitive to a specific time period. Dana and Mantey stated the following: Nothing distinguishes the noun force of the infinitive more than its use with the [definite] article…. This item is one of the proofs of the general good quality of New Testament Greek  ( A Manual Grammar of the Greek New Testament , p. 211). . Within the text of Acts 6:1-7, it is quite evident that Greek was the mother tongue of the original evangelists who spread the gospel far and wide. As Hengel pointed out, their names support this conclusion. The cities in which these men evangelized were Greek-speaking communities. Hengel wrote, Mention should of course be made here of the ˜Seven as the spokesmen of the Hellenist community (Acts 6.5), who all have Greek names, and naturally”above all others as far as his effect on the Christian church and world history is concerned”of Sha’ul/Paul, who studied the Torah in Jerusalem and persecuted the community of Christian ˜Hellenists  (Hengel, The ˜Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , p. 18). Furthermore, shortly after Saul’s conversion, he became involved in a dispute with the Grecians of Jerusalem (Acts 9:26-31). The word Grecians in this passage does not refer to Gentile Greeks but to Greek-speaking Jews. Here is Scriptural evidence that Paul used the Greek language, not Hebrew. There is no question that Paul spoke Greek, and all of his epistles were written in Greek. Hebrew was not the language of Palestine during the days of Jesus ministry; neither was it the language of the apostles. Therefore, it can be concluded that Jesus and all of the apostles spoke Greek, and the entire New Testament was originally written in Koine Greek. God inspired men to preserve the New Testament in Koine Greek. This text, as noted earlier in this chapter, is commonly known today as the Byzantine Text. http://www.cbcg.org/franklin/SA/SA_NT_Originally_Written_in_Greek.pdf . Several sects, Messianc Jews and  and even fundamentalist churches falsely claim that Jesus Christ and the apostles only spoke Hebrew, and that the original monographs of the New Testament were all written in Hebrew, and later translated into Greek. They firstly consider Greek to be a pagan language. and secondly if that was so it is clearly an insult to the Jews.  They maintain  and teach , that ancient Judea was a “backwater” area of the Roman Empire, and the people were ignorant as a whole of the Greek language, although it is admitted that Greek was the “lingua franca” and “language of commerce” throughout the Roman Empire. But  however, new archaeological discoveries have undermined the  false speculations of  the falsehood scholars and brought into clear light the fact that Greek was well known among the Jews, especially the priesthood, leadership class, and the merchant class. In particular, Greek was well understood in “Galilee of the Gentiles,” the region where Jesus Christ of Nazareth was raised, and grew up as a young lad. There is no doubt, therefore, that Jesus and the original apostles all spoke Greek – Jerusalem Jews or Jewish Christians who habitually spoke only Greek commonly. “All four Gospels depict Jesus conversing with Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect of Judea, at the time of his trial (Mark 15;2-5; Matthew 27:11-14; Luke 23:3; John 18:33- 38). Even if we allow for obvious literary embellishment of these accounts, there can be little doubt that Jesus and Pilate did engage in some kind of conversation . . . In what language did Jesus and Pilate converse? There is no mention of an interpreter. Since there is little likelihood that Pilate, a Roman, would have been able to speak either Aramaic or Hebrew, the obvious answer is that JESUS SPOKE GREEK at his trial before Pilate”  Similarly, when Jesus conversed with the Roman centurion, a commander of a troop of Roman soldiers, the centurion most likely did not speak Aramaic or Hebrew. It is most likely that Jesus conversed with him in Greek, the common language of the time throughout the Roman empire (see Matt.8:5-13; Luke 7:2-10; John 4:46-53). A royal official of Rome, in the service of Herod Antipas, a Gentile, would most likely spoken with Jesus in Greek. In John 12, where we are told: “And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus” (John 12:20-21). These men were Greeks, and most likely spoke Greek, which Philip evidently understood, having grown up in the region of “Galilee of the Gentiles” (Matt.4:15) — a place of commerce and international trade, where Greek would have been the normal language of business. , Jesus, the ‘carpenter’ (tekon, Mark 6:3), like Joseph, his foster- father (Matthew 13:55), would have had to deal with them in GREEK. . Most of the Jewish Funerary Inscriptions in  the “Galilee of the Gentiles,”  were GREEK ,  no less than 1,600 Jewish epitaphs — funerary inscriptions — are extant from ancient Palestine dating from 300 B.C. to 500 A.D. “One of the most surprising facts about these funerary inscriptions 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.”  “The Jewish people, because of their widespread dispersion in the Empire, for business and commercial purposes, mainly, spoke Greek rather fluently — and this knowledge and usage of Greek was also common throughout Judea, as this new “funerary inscription” evidence attests! This really should not be surprising at all. The Greek influence in Judea had grown very significantly since the days of Alexander the Great, circa 330 B.C. By the time of Antiochus Epiphanes, circa 168-165 B.C., Hellenism had become very strong, and many of the high priests had become “Hellenists,” leading to the Maccabean revolt. In successive generations, the Greek influence never abated, particularly among the business, commercial and priestly crowd. Many of the priests, being Sadducees, were greatly influenced by Greek culture and contact.” “The great rabbi Judah ha-Nasi, the compiler of the Mishnah (a collection of Jewish oral law) in about 200 C.E., was buried in Beth She-arim; the majority of pious Jews who wanted to be buried with him at Beth She-arim had their funerary inscriptions written in Greek.” . “Greek, of course, was in widespread use in the Roman empire at this time. Even the Romans spoke Greek, as inscriptions in Rome and elsewhere attest. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that THAT GREEK WAS ALSO IN COMMON USE AMONG THE JEWS OF PALESTINE. The Hellenization of Palestine began even before the fourth-century B.C. conquest by Alexander the Great. Hellenistic culture among the Jews of Palestine spread more quickly after Alexander’s conquest, especially when the country was ruled by the Seleucid monarch Antiochus IV Epiphanes (second century B.C.), and later under certain Jewish Hasmonean and Herodian kings” .

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 we knew what 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 from Sepphoris, 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 was 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. Ossuaries dating 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 the Essene Community 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 expert Carsten Thiede and 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 and Nakh, 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 Isaiah that that scroll 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  absurdily cannot 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 on ossuaries (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 the Nahal Hever 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-called Nahal Hever 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 from Sepphoris, which was a major city and one in which Greek was spoken.     
.
The impact of Alexander the Great’s conquests in the fourth century B.C. resulted in the Mediterranean’s being a ‘Greek sea’ in Jesus’ day. In the third century Jews in Egypt could no longer read the Scriptures in Hebrew, so they began to translated them into Greek. This famous translation became known as the Septuagint (LXX). Jesus, who was reared in ‘Galilee, of the Gentiles,’ lived only three or four miles from the thriving Greek city of Sepphoris. There may even have been times when he and his father worked in this rapidly grow- ing metropolitan city, which served as the capital city of Herod Antipas until A.D. 26, when he moved the capital to Tiberias”  “Two of Jesus’ disciples were even known by their Greek names: Andrew and Philip. In addition, there are several incidents in Jesus’ ministry when he spoke to people who knew neither Aramaic nor Hebrew. Thus unless a translator was present (though none is ever mentioned), their conversations probably took place in the Greek language. Probably Jesus spoke Greek during the following occasions: the visit to Tyre, Sidon and the Decapolis (Mark 7:31ff), the conversation with the Syro-Phoenician woman (Mark 7:24-30; compare especially 7?26) and the trial before Pontius Pilate (Mark 15:2-15; compare also Jesus’ conversation with the ‘Greeks’ in John 12:20-36)”  (Jesus the Messiah: A Survey of the Life of Christ, Robert H. Stein, InterVarsity Press,, 1996, p.87). . Greek was undoubtedly the language of the New Testament.  New Bible Dictionary: “The language in which the New Testament documents have been preserved is the ‘common Greek’ (koine),which was the lingua franca of the Near Eastern and Mediterranean lands in Roman times” (p.713).There is no evidence at all to suppose that the New Testament was originally written in anything but ancient Greek! Concludes the New Bible Dictionary.  It is a spurious, specious argument and a big lie  to claim that the New Testament had to have been written in Hebrew, and had to contain only the Hebrew names for God. All the evidence of the manuscripts points otherwise.  Those who claim the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew, utilizing the Hebrew names for God, have no evidence or proof whatsoever to back up their claims. Should we believe them at all when they have no evidence, but only a belief.. Should we take thus their speculations as “fact”? Of course not! Absurd, ridiculous, unscholarly and dishonest. . “God is not prejudiced against the Greek language, or Russian, Italian, German, Chinese, Spanish, French, or English. But, as Peter declared: “Of a truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him” (Acts 10:34-35). Amen to that! “ Why was the New Testament originally written in GREEK? The basic reason why this language was chosen instead of Aramaic or Hebrew was that the writers wished to reach a broad, Gentile (non-Israelite) audience, not just a Jewish audience. .  What difference does it make, anyway, what language Jesus and His disciples spoke? The answer becomes clear when we realize that there are churches, sects and cults today which make a great issue over the subject of “holy names.” These churches will not use ANY name for God or Christ in ANY language except what they call the original “Hebrew” names for God and the Messiah.  “Christ” is merely the English form of the Greek word Christos, which merely means “Anointed” one.  The fact that God preserved the entirely of the New Testament in the Greek language and Jesus preached, spoke gives these these brain dead  people  of the cults a really big”fitt.” or “panic”. God Almighty have the power to preserve His name in whatever language He chooses? Of course He does! And it is patently obvious that He choose to preserve the New Testament Scriptures in Greek — not Hebrew! The fact that Jesus and the apostles undeniably all spoke Greek is another nail in the coffin of these “language-worshippers” and  Hebrew  addicts. And clearly as they are wrong here they are also wrong in so many areas, doctrines then. Wouldn’t it seem awfully perverse that if God He Himself divided all mankind into many language groups at the tower of Babel nut next  intended all mankind to use only the Hebrew names of God and the Messiah.  The fact is, there is no honest Biblical evidence that God must be called only by His Hebrew names and titles. There is no Biblical or linguistic evidence that prohibits the use of English names and titles for God. Furthermore, as some suggest  some parts of the New Testament were written in Hebrew  such as the gospel of Matthew ,  now isn’t it amazing that God did not preserve those manuscripts — instead He chose to preserve His New Testament Scriptures in the GREEK LANGUAGE, with the Greek forms of His name and titles! Not one single book of the New Testament has been preserved in Hebrew — only in Greek and thousands of  supporting documents too. Since Almighty God has preserved the New Testament Scriptures almost solely in the Greek language,  all of them were originally written in Greek, it is obvious that God Himself teaches that Greek forms of God’s names and titles are perfectly all right for us to use, and translations of those forms and names into other languages, including English. Jesus the Name above all names for example.
.
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 the 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
.
Undoubtedly, one of the most remarkable acts of Israel was to have taken a language that has been dead for 2,000 years, even during and after the time of Christ, Greek and next Aramaic and not Hebrew was the language spoken in the land of Israel, and to have transformed it into a living national language, in 1948. Many East European Jews spoke Yiddish. Many Sephardi Jews spoke Ladino. Many other Jews spoke only the language of their country of origin. Hebrew was also the first language of the Old Testament Bible  but not of the New Testament. . Jesus, in Hebrew-his own language, means “YAHWEH IS SALVATION” or “YAHWEH SAVES” ?   God, The Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ  they did not come to earth primarily for the Jews but rather to save all of mankind . https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/the-purpose-of-jesus-christs-mission-on-earth/ .

THE MAJOR ERRORS OF CHRISTIAN ZIONISM

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

Acts 17:10 Now the brethren at once sent Paul and Silas away by night to Beroea; and when they arrived, they entered the synagogue of the Jews. 11 Now these [Jews] were better disposed {and} more noble than those in Thessalonica, for they were entirely ready {and} accepted {and} welcomed the message [concerning the attainment through Christ of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God] with inclination of mind {and} eagerness, searching {and} examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.  Many of them therefore became believers, together with not a few prominent Greeks, women as well as men.

Psalms 109: Plea for Judgment of False Accusers
.
1    Do not keep silent, O God of my praise! 2    For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful Have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. 3    They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause. 4    In return for my love they are my accusers, But I give myself to prayer. 5    Thus they have rewarded me evil for good, And hatred for my love. 6    Set a wicked man over him, And let an accuser stand at his right hand. 7    When he is judged, let him be found guilty, And let his prayer become sin. 8    Let his days be few, And let another take his office. 9    Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow. 10    Let his children continually be vagabonds, and beg; Let them seek their bread also from their desolate places. 11    Let the creditor seize all that he has, And let strangers plunder his labor. 12    Let there be none to extend mercy to him, Nor let there be any to favor his fatherless children. 13    Let his posterity be cut off, And in the generation following let their name be blotted out. 14    Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD, And let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. 15    Let them be continually before the LORD, That He may cut off the memory of them from the earth; 16    Because he did not remember to show mercy, But persecuted the poor and needy man, That he might even slay the broken in heart. 17    As he loved cursing, so let it come to him; As he did not delight in blessing, so let it be far from him. 18    As he clothed himself with cursing as with his garment, So let it enter his body like water, And like oil into his bones. 19    Let it be to him like the garment which covers him, And for a belt with which he girds himself continually. 20    Let this be the LORD’s reward to my accusers, And to those who speak evil against my person. 21    But You, O GOD the Lord, Deal with me for Your name’s sake; Because Your mercy is good, deliver me. 22    For I am poor and needy, And my heart is wounded within me. 23    I am gone like a shadow when it lengthens; I am shaken off like a locust. 24    My knees are weak through fasting, And my flesh is feeble from lack of fatness. 25    I also have become a reproach to them; When they look at me, they shake their heads. 26    Help me, O LORD my God! Oh, save me according to Your mercy, 27    That they may know that this is Your hand — That You, LORD, have done it! 28    Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, let them be ashamed, But let Your servant rejoice. 29    Let my accusers be clothed with shame, And let them cover themselves with their own disgrace as with a mantle. 30    I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; Yes, I will praise Him among the multitude. 31    For He shall stand at the right hand of the poor, To save him from those who condemn him.

Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his namebefore my Father, and before his angels.

.

It is undeniable that most even professing Christians do not take the time or the prayers to let the Holy Spirit teach them fully, personally the truths from the Bible. so they are all mostly in errors cause they believe the lies of the devil, the lies of mere men, and believe their own false human reasons, conclusions. If a man is to understand the word, he cannot rely on human wisdom, human wisdom is insufficient for understanding God. Thus it is still critical, essential important that each  believer studies even the Bible  with the aid of the Holy Spirit as when the flesh interprets all of scriptures. the result tends to be still mostly dead wrong,

.

It should be evident to many people that too many even Jewish persons, Messianic Jews included now too,  still do cut and paste, chose Bible verse they like and cut out , they falsely do reject the ones they do not like, misunderstand and/or try to rewrite the Bible to suit their own liking, they have re-interpret Bible verses for their own purposes, as they now are false revisionists. The supreme New Testament has replaced the Old Testament and the New Testament clarifies what is no longer applicable in the old Testament, all Judaism included.

Tithing

Tithing- Definition
The Tithe- A tenth part of one’s annual income contributed voluntarily or due as an obligatory  tax, partially  for the support of the clergy or church, synagogue
.
TOO MANY CHRISTIAN CHURCHES, DENOMINATIONS NOW do now differ very significantly from EACH OTHER  including the Mennonites, Brethren, Baptists, Catholics, Anglican, Presbyterian.  Some even   preach the whole or full Gospel of Jesus Christ; Jesus as Savior, Healer, Deliverer, Provider, coming King, Baptizer of the Holy Ghosts, Sanctifier, Giver of gifts too… and yet most churches still are not more spiritual over the others, mainly because the leadership has watered down the requirements of what it takes to be a Christian, a church member .. apparently you can often buy a membership by tithing, giving ten percent of your income to the local church.. https://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/11/02/for-without-me-ye-can-do-nothing/
 .
Generally, mostly it is the insecure people in God, because of their still unresolved guilt,  who falsely have an emphasis on forced evangelism, and they falsely do support enforced, forced tithing, keeping the ten commandments  because they do not have enough of a relationship with God for HIM to supply all of their needs for their ministry. It should be noted that Jesus himself and  the Original apostles had never  requested tithing, and clearly they had not relied on tithing for all of their missionary endeavours. They trusted God for their leading and their needs to be met  Jesus himself and  the Original apostles financial request lay solely in helping the poor Christians. These same people generally are falsely trying to find God’s favour not by faith in Jesus Christ but falsely by their religious good efforts as they clearly still do not know what faith in God means..
.

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

28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
.
Hebrews 11
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

.

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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

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

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

.

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

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

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

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

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

.

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

The old is not the same as the New

thenew

Face it most Jews and many others still do lie about Christianity cause they are falsely pushing their own  false or obsoleted religion

.

Real Christianity and truth now  is based on the teaching of Jesus and the Apostles as found in the New Testament, and not on the old Testament, note the term old, solely.. The Church today has replaced Old  Israel in God’s prophetic tapestry too.

.

Now one of God’s attributes is that He is “not a man, that He should lie” (Nu 23:19), and as Paul declares He “cannot lie” (Titus 1:2-note). So it is only the devil and his followers who do all the lying and the false twisting of God’s words in the Bible too,   and sadly even most humans.. and so do beware of men.. Matthew 10:17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

.

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

.

Does the new Testament support the  Jewish idea of a literal 1000 year reign of the Jews with the Messiah  on the earth? No and why not???

.

The False  Christians and  Jewish non-Christians, most Messianic Jews,  who  interpret all of The Book of Revelation  solely in a literal sense, do also falsely  view God’s kingdom  as next  being a materialistic,   Jewish type kingdom lasting 1000 years or more with Jerusalem as the world’s capital of worship, and a center for a restored Jewish temple and related worship. The same liars also do  say that on the Messiah’s coming, His feet will stand upon the mount of Olives. Gathering  all of  His Jewish people with Him, the Messiah  will come to the eastern gate of Jerusalem. The Messiah  will then open the gate which has been sealed for centuries and enter a building. In the building, the Jewish Messiah  will sit on a throne, and will rule over all the Jews. everyone too, and be crowned king of the world.

.

Presently over 2 Billion of Christians do not agree with this.. why? The undeniable difficulty of defining which allegorical, spiritualized, symbolic, mystical, etc, Jewish interpretation is the “right” interpretation is one of the major reasons there is a veritable cornucopia of chaotic, conflicting and confusing interpretations on even the book of the Revelation, and other books of the Bible now too.

.

For example- Now when Jesus declared “I am the door, if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture” (Jn 10:9) He was clearly using a figure of speech, and with the symbol of a door He beautifully illustrated that He was still  literally the Way through one must pass to come into the “room” of salvation.

.

In short, we readily recognize the use of symbolic language in Scripture exists .

.

Clearly, the Bible  also uses symbolic language and figures of speech to convey literal truth not just Literal approach.To be sure, there are times when one cannot be absolutely certain of the literal meaning of a symbol, as for example the locusts in Re 9:7

.

Still “God is not a God of confusion”! (1Co 14:33).

.

The People who have their own predefined Jewish views and agenda wail twist Revelations to suit their own views.

.

We need everything to be clearly, rightfully, honestly  established and not on isolated verses too.. and not by your carnal mind of mere men as  the Holy Spirit alone “will teach you all things” (John 14:26) and  He will “guide you into all the truth…and… He will disclose to you what is to come. (John 16:13). The anointing (which alludes to the ministry of the  Holy Spirit) which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. (1John 2:27).  

.

John is not saying youdo now  need a human teacher, for as a true believer already have access to best Teacher you will ever need, God, and you have   One Who will help you to discern whether others are speaking truth or error (cp Heb 5:14-note, 1Th 5:21,22).

.

So it is first always a good practice when studying the Bible is to “pray without ceasing” (1Th 5:17-note) seeking the Holy Spirit’s ministry of illumination and not your won, the devil’s or men’s.

.

Revelation 1 :1  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. 9    I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation,( not in rapture)  and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

.

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no one could count from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues,   standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands…13 And one of the elders answered, saying to me, “These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and from where have they come?” 14 And I said to him, “My lord, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the Great Tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (See  Revelation 7:9, 13; 14) Note these are Christians who had been killed during the great tribulation proving there is no rapture.

.

Next  the term Millennium is a term derived from the Latin mille meaning “a thousand”. The term “Millennium” per se is not found in the Scriptures but is used by many evangelicals to identify supposedly  the period of “one thousand years”. Other common synonyms for “Millennium” include “Millennial Kingdom”, “Messianic Kingdom”, “1000 Year Reign of Christ”, “Messianic Age”

.

Zechariah 14:16 states and I quote, “And it shall come to pass that every one that is left of all nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship…and to keep the feast of tabernacles,” and in Isaiah 66:20-23 we read, “It shall come to pass that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.”

.

Jewish oriented perverts  can only used old testament verses to support their Judaic Kingdom lies.. as the New Testament, nor Jesus Christ nor do any of the Apostle now they  do  not speak about it or confirm it still. If it is not plainly seen, proclaimed then do not believe the liars add ons.. especially those people who try to explain everything or explain it away.. like the false Dispensationalist.

.

 The Jews will not rule and reign with the Messiah  in Jerusalem, which will become the capital of the world. The nations will quit fighting, and will drop all weapons. They will not come to Jerusalem to keep the feast days, new moons, and Sabbaths. An elaborate temple will not be built in which a Levitical priesthood will offer animal sacrifices and carry out the rituals of the Mosaic system. His kingdom is not an earthly and political kingdom which was postponed during His first coming,  as  they falsely claim will all be set up.

.

Here is a brief look at Scriptures to see whether or not it teaches a Jewish-type Millennium.

.

To reinstitute the Jewish temple worship in a literal sense, would mean a return to Old Testament doctrine.. For example, animal sacrifices would be offered for sin. Priests would slay a burnt offering, the sin offering, and trespass offering (Ez. 40:38,39) and sprinkle the blood on the altar (Ezekiel 43:18).

.

This doctrine firstly clearly denies Jesus Christ’s first coming. As the New Testament teaches, when Jesus Christ shed His blood, He became the perfect sacrifice for the sins of His people forever. He offered it once not many times as those priests offered sacrifices in both in the Old Testament.

.

It’s quite clear, according to New Testament teachings there will be not a mixture of Old Testament doctrine with New Testament doctrine.. When Jesus Christ comes back a second time, it’s to gather His Christian  people, and destroy both the wicked, and the world, as it states, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that therein shall be burned up (2Peter 3:10).

.

Jesus Christ the true Messiah is not coming back to set up a Jewish political kingdom  nor was it His objective at His first Coming, in John 18:36 He clearly says it. If  Jesus Christ was coming back to set up a political Kingdom He wouldn’t have denied it to Pilate.

.

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

.

The Scriptures clearly teach that the old covenant had been replaced by a new and better covenant (Hebrews 8:6-13). The old covenant “is done away” and Christ blood is an everlasting covenant (Hebrews 12:24).

.

No where , now absolutely no where, in the New Testament do we see the command of believers to go back to Old Testament doctrine.

.

Even back during the Apostles time, those who did mix Old Testament doctrine with New Testament doctrine were considered “false brethren” who will bring the people into “bondage” instead of liberty of Christ (Gal. 2:3-5).

.

If the Old Testament system cannot make people righteous now, then it is certain that it cannot make people righteous in an age to come! One most damaging claims, which makes this doctrine contrary to Scripture is the claiming the Old Testament doctrine will be reinstituted for all believers, as the Scriptures teach, “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come”, Colossians 2:16,17.

.

When Christ came, all those Old Testament practices which reflected Christ, were longer needed as prophecy about Christ’s first coming was fulfilled.

.

To go back to these Old Testament practices would be denying Jesus the Christ as a Savior who came and fulfilled that which He commanded to be done. Do you know what I mean? 

.

Let me repeat my point again. The only purpose for those practices to be done in the Old Testament was because as Scripture puts it, “are a shadow of things to come.” Christ has fulfilled the Scriptures that pointed to His first coming, He is no longer a shadow of things to come on earth..

.

The true meaning of the Jerusalem temple was a reflection of what was going to happen in the future, God raised people up who themselves became a temple of God, having been born again by the Spirit of God..

.

As the Scriptures saith, “Ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them” (2 Cor. 6:16). Christians are the house of God (1 Peter 4:17). It’s impossible to go backwards to a carnal temple and practice Old Testament rituals such as animal sacrifices..

.

It is also  still very clear that the passage .. And I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them (this appears to describe a time in eternity future when there is no heaven and no earth, old or new, which correlates with 2 Pe 3:10-  And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. And death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. (see  Revelation 20:11; 12; 13; 14; 15)

.

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be among them (see  Revelation 21:1; 21:2; 21:3)

.

Now how stupid do the Jews  really thing the rest of us are? that we would accept their  unbiblical  lies, deceptions, distortions

Preach the full Gospel to all

shepherd

Let us be clear that all of the  Apostles preached the very  same Full Gospel to both to the Jews and the Gentiles even all of their need of their personal salvation from Hell by Jesus Christ. While Apostle Peter preached mainly  to the Jews,  Apostle Paul Preached this to both the Jews and gentiles. This is the same Full Gospel and not a partial Gospel that we are to preach today to both the Jews and Gentiles

Eph 3:1-9  For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.

Gal 2:7  But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision [Gentiles]  was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision [Jews] was unto Peter;

Rom 10:9-13  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

[Rom. 2:16]: “In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to MY GOSPEL.”

[Rom. 16:25]: “Now to Him that is of power to stablish you according to MY GOSPEL, and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began.”

[2 Tim. 2:7-8]: “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to MY GOSPEL.”

[Gal. 1:11]: “But I certify you, brethren, that THE GOSPEL which WAS PREACHED OF ME is not after man.”

[Gal. 2:2]: “And I went up (to Jerusalem) by revelation, and communicated unto them THAT GOSPEL WHICH I PREACH AMONG THE GENTILES,

[1 Cor. 15:1]: “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you THE GOSPEL WHICH I PREACHED UNTO YOU, which .also ye have received, and wherein ye stand.”

Saul or Paul was  apostle. He was personally  called by Jesus. He had a definite  encounter an encounter with Jesus. And the path that God led him on was to be an apostle, which is what all Christians are, a missionary of the Gospel. Still he was just another man called and used by God  and each man in the Bible besides Jesus failed and had sin in there life. That’s including Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Peter, and Paul. For all have fallen short of the glory of God. So when Jesus died on the cross it was because it became our sin and became the payment for it. Him rising again on the third day is significant because that meant that he defeated death/sin, which something we can’t do on our own  as we don’t have to Holy Spirit power to do so originally. So we need Jesus  Christ to be able to defeat death even. Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Jesus said “I’m the way the truth and the life. No one gets to the Father but by me”. For being  “just a prophet”  (according to the Jews)  that’s a huge statement and a huge act of love (dying on the cross) if that was all in vain.

For a Jew Moses is credited with writing the Torah and is the law giver and for them falsely  Paul can trump that, which could be one reason why many  a Jewish or Muslim person may not appreciate the Christians view of influential Paul.. Those Jews who too often also are only partially aware of the details of Christian teachings and the teachings of Paul falsely tend to see Paul as being at a main fault for creating the opposition  to main Judaism.

Many atheist, evolutionists, college and university professors, New Agers, Satanists and Wiccans, Christ deniers, New Testament deniers, Jews,  Church haters, Preacher haters, and sinners who could care less what religion rules over them will  laugh and drink themselves drunk with lies . Paul they hate, and the Jesus of the Gospels they deny. He did not die on the Cross. He was not resurrected. He was not the Son of God. He was not God. The entire Gospel accounts are false. And they too want Paul now to be dissected and quartered and dragged through the streets by destroying his epistles. So what else is new The Apostle Paul himself once one of those by the prayers of the faithful Christians converted him next. Jesus could have ignored Paul. After all he was a hired Pharisee bounty-hunter. He had authority from the Temple cult to arrest, put in jail, try, and put to death Christians. He did this until one day on the road out of Israel into Syria. Paul was on his way to Damascus the capitol of Syria. On this Gentile road in a Gentile land, Paul got a visitation from the Jewish Jesus. He was on a Gentile road in a Gentile country chasing fleeing Jews to arrest and bring back to Israel for trial and their deaths. But the Jewish Jesus who could have smitten him down dead instead smote him with blindness and rebuked him. Paul was bold when he had Jewish backing and Temple soldiers with him to protect him. But they could not put up a shield thick enough to keep God’s light from hitting him in the face. There, the enemy of Calvary, the Pharisee hypocrite, the bounty-hunter, trembled. He felt a fear he had never encountered before. He knew he was a dead man if he did not the voice with respect who said “Saul, Saul.” “Who art thou Lord” he cried in fear. And the Lord from heaven said: “I AM JESUS WHOM THOU PERSECUTETH.” Jesus  selection of Paul as the Apostle to the Gentiles is befitting the fact Jesus converted him in a Gentile country chasing down Jews to put to death. He would still next too reap what he was sowing.   Jesus had plans for Paul. Paul’s first journey after his encounter with the Jewish Jesus was to go into Arabia. What was there that would cause him to seek some answer from God? He sure did not go to Mecca which was then the center of paganism and many idol gods. He did not go to worship at the Kabba stone. He likely  went to Mt Sinai in Arabia, to seek God even  about his future. Paul  came back a changed man.   No Apostle doubted him. No not even Peter on his trips to Antioch. Not any of the Apostles in the Jerusalem meetings in Acts 15 doubted him. Not even James the brother of Jesus did. In fact, Paul was next held in high esteem. He clearly was the most, educated,  intelligent Jewish scholar of that time of the Apostles now (not counting Jesus). Paul was the greatest Pharisee scholar of his time. And   his teachings and writings now even excel the Book of Mormons, the Koran , the Torah, Talmud too.  It is still falsely a death penalty for any Muslim to believe Jesus or Paul and become a Christian. The Muslim who converts must die and the person who converts them must die. Apostle Paul  was greater than Mohammed and any other Iman Islam has ever produced. All Christians must believe this or they are not real Holy Spirit led Christians. In democratic countries the others can have  their liberty and freedom of speech, but likewise we also still can have our liberty to speak what we believe about Jesus and the Apostle Paul. Jesus and Paul still stand as mountains over all other religious leaders of the world and this include those within Islam, etc.,. Saint Paul was the most influential biblical figure (Old and New Testament) other than Jesus himself?  And not one real Christian could ever say Lord Mohammed like we say Lord Jesus.  All hail King Jesus, All hail Emmanuel,  All hail God.

Most Jews falsely  hate Apostle Paul, many Liberal Christians hate Paul, many Muslims hate Paul, it seems  everyone who defends sin hates Paul. Especially those who falsely defend homosexuality even.

Most  Jews  are  still not at all open to even consider any of  the claims of Jesus Christ. One was defeated before he even began  The truth has noting to do with it.. .The Jews hate Jesus Christ because they do not like being in a position of “weakness.” For one to come to Jesus Christ he has to admit that he has sinned and in need of a Saviour and therefore must repent and correct his conduct.   The Jews find this absolutely abhorrent. The Chosen Jews do not want a Saviour. They do not believe they have ever sinned. They do not see any need to repent of anything. The Jews simply abhor the idea of getting down on their knees. Indeed every Jew who persists in his hatred of Jesus Christ, even  the “new enemies” of the Cross: The Jews of the ACLU; the Jews of the Neoconservative movement; the Jews who run the Media and Madison Avenue; the Jews who run Hollywood with their filth, their vile promotion of fornication, homosexuality, and lesbianism.  “They are all the enemies of the Cross.” (Philippians 3) even because of their false pride , in their pig-headedness  Jews will say, “Jesus Christ was an imposter.” The best amongst the Jews will tell you, “Jesus Christ was a great teacher but not the Messiah.” Or the worst amongst the Jews will tell you, “Jesus Christ was demon.” But when push comes to shove the Jews will finally say, “I was born a Jew and I will die a Jew.” And so we see the Jews moving their negation of Jesus Christ into an outright warfare against Him.  Their wishes will be answered in Hell.. as well as for all Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists etc., too..” “You have found yourselves unworthy of the Kingdom of Heaven” Those amongst them, that is, the rabbis & their admirers,   are looking for a “messiah,”as they   want him to be the conqueror of the all of the nations and also next to  put them in charge of the world. There is no such thing as repentance in this their “messianic hope.” And this rabbinic “messianic hope” of conquering the Goyim, funnels down even to the secular Jews who give tacit submission to the rabbis, Bible.. NOW THAT THE SAME JEWS WHO HAVE DECIDED that they will “render unto Caesar the things that are of the Jews,” they demand  now to have God render back unto them the things that are God’s. Including His holy retribution upon all those who are now anti-Semites.

Hate speech today often  means anything the Jews firstly  hate to hear, especially the truth about themselves… Make no mistake about it: almost all of the Jews hate the Lord Jesus Christ God had once  chosen Jews to fulfill a role, but the perverted it  is the complete opposite of what they purportedly represent which today is an antichrist nature in the world. Judaism is a dead end for this planet now too. Jewish life was regulated by the Pharisees; the whole history of Judaism was reconstructed from the Pharisaic point of view. …  Jesus Himself charged the Jewish Pharisees   with having an inherent spirit of guilt for having the elements which defined Satan, or the devil.  “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do” John 8:44. This was a metaphor of sin and lawlessness. Thus have ye [Jews] made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition” (Mt. 15:6).

Now those things we are still vehemently opposed to God that many Jews also still undeniably do,.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ

grace
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, HE has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (1 Peter 1:3)
.
1 John 3:10 Here is how you can tell the difference between the children of God and the children of the devil. Those who don’t do what is right do not belong to God. Those who don’t love their brothers and sisters do not belong to him either.
.
Mat 5:43-45 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor. Hate your enemy.’ But here is what I tell you. Love your enemies. Pray for those who hurt you. THEN you will be sons of your Father who is in heaven.
.

Galatians 4:28-31 Now YOU, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise. At that time the son born in the ordinary way persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now. But what does the Scripture say? “Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son.” Therefore, brothers, WE ARE NOT children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

.

Jesus himself had  taught his disciples that God would take his blessings away from fleshly Israel because they had  rejected him as Christ and give it now to the Gentiles.
.
Jesus clearly taught the Gentile believers would replace the Jewish non-believers as the new chosen ones in God’s favor, Kingdom, Promises..  
.
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.
.
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.
.
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.
.
“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)
.
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! It is through the Lord Jesus Christ. Jews have no special route to heaven that gentiles do not have. They all must believe and do the same things to be saved.; There is only one plan of salvation for all mankind: for Jews and Gentiles too. Believe, repent, confess the Lord Jesus Christ and be immersed in water for the remission of your sins. Be filled and be Baptized with  the Holy Spirit. (Mk 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16; 1 Peter 3:21
.
“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)
.
“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);
.
While clearly the entire leadership of the first Christian, apostolic church and most of the Elders in the Christian churches originally  were Jewish they next had become Christians who stopped keeping the Sabbath and abandoned the Mosaic system, Laws  of Judaism. They also rather began immediately worshipping God together on the first day of the week, the Lord’s day, Sunday
.
The Kingdom of God was now fully established on Pentecost as per the book of Acts “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.” (Daniel 2:44)
.
While Apostle 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)
.
1 Peter 2:  1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3    If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. 4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, 5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.  7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8    And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. 9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul
.
“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);
.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:16-17)
.
“For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:12-13)
.
“I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God has not rejected His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? “Lord, they have killed Your prophets, they have torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they are seeking my life.” But what is the divine response to him? “I have kept for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time a remnant according to God’s gracious choice. But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace. ” (Romans 11:1-6)
.
“But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas in the presence of all, “If you, being a Jew, live like the Gentiles and not like the Jews, how is it that you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews? “We are Jews by nature and not sinners from among the Gentiles; nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified. ” (Galatians 2:14-16);
.
AS PER THE NEW TESTAMENT NOW the church is the true Israel and Christians are God’s true “Jews” today. “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)    “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)
.
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 the dispensationalist  John Darby. When Christians then saw the signs Jesus had sated , they fled the city and were saved.;
.
ZIONISTS AND MESSIANIC JEWS ARE are carnal at their foundational core. They literalize all the clearly spiritual passages that are applied to the church and instead apply them 2000 years later to modern Israel. “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);
.
“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.; Jesus taught Replacement Theology. The apostles taught Replacement Theology.;  We rightfully do also teach replacement theology
.
1948 Israeli statehood is irrelevant.  Fleshly Israel is still  lost and going to Hell without Christ.   Any restoring of a temple sacrifices in Jerusalem is a heretical denial of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Also Israeli statehood 1948 AD was not pre prophesied by Jesus or the Apostles, and it  is not a sign of a soon to happen second coming, Restoration of Israel,  or whatever!
 .

John 6:32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you NOT that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

.
John 8:37, “I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.”
 .

John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] you.

 .

Rom 2:28 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.

 .
For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.” (Mat 12:49-50)
.
 
1 Corinthians 2: 1    And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.2    For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.3    And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.4    And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:5    That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.6    Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:7    But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:8    Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.9    But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.10    But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.11    For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.12    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.13    Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.14    But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.15    But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.16    For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
.

This scripture, The Bible, the Words of God,  says of all persons who are Born again in the Lord Jesus Jesus Christ:

1) We have received the initial gift of God’s Holy Spirit
2) The Spirit was given to teach us to “compare spiritual things with spiritual” 
3) This is called “spiritual discernment”
4) Natural minded people cannot accept “spiritual discernment” because it is foolishness to him
5) By spiritual discernment we can “know the things which are freely given to us” by God;
.

And all this still applies only if we are spirit led, and listen to the teaching of the Holy Spirit and not rather the lies of the devil and mere men and women.as .the flesh profits nothing,

.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
.
Romans 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
.
Romans 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
.

The natural man prefers earthy discernment because they still  are sinful, also earthy, sensual, demonic and without the Holy Spirit’s spiritual discernment, one cannot know what they can inherited. as Born from above Holy Spirit filled Christians.

.

The World of God the Bible or Jesus Christ is spiritual. To understand what God’s Word says, the Holy Spirit himself has to  teach us even to “spiritually discern” by comparing Spiritual (words) with Spiritual (meaning) found elsewhere in the Bible now too..

Why do you suppose the Jewish people – who believed Jesus was the Messiah – were ultimately disillusioned, and betrayed him? Because according to “man’s wisdom,” they expected Jesus to fulfill their “royal land grant” by defeating Rome. often did Jesus Christ and  the apostles admonish the church to protect the land for the Jewish people? NEVER. Not once. Jesus Christ and all of the apostles simply weren’t interested in championing the quest for land, so they never encouraged it. Jesus Christ and the apostles always pointed to “the promise of the Holy Spirit.”

.

Galatians 3:1 (God) redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, SO THAT by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. Search the Old Testament. You still will not see “the promise of the Spirit” literally pledged to Abraham even once.. Do you not know that the Holy Spirit comes ONLY by faith in Jesus Christ and his words? This is why no inheritance exists outside of the Lord Jesus Christ, and why any of  the blessing to Abraham comes THROUGH Jesus Christ.

.

Hebrews 3:7-11 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, where your fathers put me to the test and saw my works for forty years. Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart; they have not known my ways.’ As I swore in my wrath, ‘They shall not enter my rest.'”
.
Hebrews 3:16-18 For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those who left Egypt led by Moses? And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient?
.

God swore: “they shall not enter into my rest.” The rest of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ.

.

Hebrews 12:22: But YOU have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect.
 .

Revelation 21:2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.

 .
Mat 11:28-29 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Any personal Good works and the supposedly performance of all 613 precepts of the Jewish Law will still not suffice, as they cannot remake the inner man, or wash the soul of sins, thus will still cause the same person t go to hell only! God has not promised any race of people, any nation nor any person great prosperity in spite of their disobedience. 
.

Obedient to whom the false Torah, the  now redundant old testament or obedience  to the New testament and the holy Spirit.. being filled and Baptized with the holy spirit now. Any personal Good works and the supposedly performance of all 613 precepts of the Jewish Law will still not suffice, as they cannot remake the inner man, or wash the soul of sins, thus will still cause the same person t go to hell only! God has not promised any race of people, any nation nor any person great prosperity in spite of their disobedience to the revealed will of God for them. But he God does demand still full obedience by faith to his son the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Messiah and God too.

.
Acts 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
.
But nevertheless righteousness does not come mainly by our good works but by our faith in Jesus Christ
.
Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. thee.
.
Romans 3: 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
.
22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
.
26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
.
Romans 4: 3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
.
5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
.
6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
.
9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.
.
11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:
.
13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
.
22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
.
Romans 5:17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
.
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
.
Romans 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
.
10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
.
Romans 9 :30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.
.
31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.
.
Romans 10: 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
.
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
.
6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
.
Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
.
1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

2 Corinthians 9:9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
.
10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
.
Galatians 5:5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
.
Ephesians 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
.
Ephesians 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
.
Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
.
Philippians 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
.
Philippians 3:6 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
.
1 Timothy 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
.
2 Timothy 2:22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
.
2 Timothy 3”16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
.
Hebrews 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
.
The following Scripture evidences that Old Testament saints were saved the EXACT SAME WAY that New Testament saints are saved, that is, by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
.
Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.”
.
But still only a remnant of Jews will repent and believe the Gospel. 
.
God’s people are are all of the saved born-again believers in Jesus Christ still. Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
.
 “Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.” (Isaiah 51:11)
.
It is VERY IMPORTANT for Jews to understand that no unsaved Jew will be allowed into God’s kingdom. Jesus taught Nicodemus, a Jew and leader over the Jews, that unless a man is born-again he cannot enter into Heaven (John 3:1-7). 1st Peter 1:23 teaches that we are born-again by the Seed of God’s Word, by faith in Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God (John 20:31). There some who foolishly believed that unsaved Jews will inherit the Promised Land. Sorry, it won’t happen! John  Only through faith alone in Jesus Christ as your personal Savior can you go to Heaven (Acts 16:31; John 20:31; Ephesians 2:8-9).
.
And the New Testament written by God and his Jewish servants now too was not written in Hebrew, but in Greek.
.
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage … and I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from Grace.” Galatians 5:1-4
.
Christians worship on Sunday and not the Saturday Sabbath too.. “Now on the first day of the week, when the Disciples came together to break bread …” Acts 20:7
.
The Scriptures also now further teach: “Let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon, or Sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.” Colossians 2:16-17
.
Judaism is a Satanic false religion, because they deny that Jesus is the Messiah. They claim that their Messiah has not come yet. Sadly, they will embrace the man of sin, the Antichrist, when he appears. Most Jews deny that Jesus is the Messiah. They are NOT God’s children. You see friend, you can be a physical Jew and not be a spiritual Jew.
.
As true Christians, we know that Jesus, the Messiah, came 2,000 years ago to take away the sins of the world as the Lamb of God (John 3:16). Amen and amen!
.
The Books of Galatians, Colossians and Hebrews were particularly written to oppose the false teachings and legalism of the Judaizers. “I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different gospel, which is not another, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the Gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from Heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:6-9
.
Now in Acts 15. The Judaizers were insisting that you could not be saved without adhering to the Jewish law.
.
Apostle Paul struggled to keep believers from falling back under the Old Testament laws. Judaizers, legalists of the day, tried to make the Gentile believers keep the Jewish commandments of circumcision, the law (Ten Commandments), dietary commandments, and the observance of special days; but the Apostle Paul taught that we are no longer under the law but under grace. Churches, pastors, and “Torah Keepers” who preach justification by keeping the law are blaspheming God. Their false  justification by legalism and works is a statement to God that Jesus Christ died in vain.
.
Galatians 2:21 “I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness [comes] through the law, then Christ died in vain.”
.
Galatians 3:1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? 2 This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?
.
Galatians 5:2 Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. 3 And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law.
.
Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
.
Scripture clearly tells us to live our lives by the leading of the indwelling Holy Spirit, not by keeping our eyes on the law (Ten Commandments) or on a list of rules. We are to walk in the Spirit, not in the flesh.
.
Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
.
The Apostle Peter opposed the Judaizers by reporting on how God poured out His Holy Spirit on the gentiles: “So God, who knows the heart, acknowledged them by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He did to us, and made no distinction between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. Now, therefore, why do you test God by putting a yolk on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?” Acts 15:8-10
.
The Apostle Paul and Barnabas testified to the miraculous works of God among the Gentiles. James pointed out how this was the fulfillment of many prophecies and he declared: “Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the Gentiles who are turning to God, but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality and from things strangled and from blood.” Acts 15:19-20
.
The conclusion of the Jerusalem Conference is recorded in Acts 15:22-29. In it the Apostles, elders and brethren of the Church in Jerusalem dissociated themselves from the Judaizers who were “unsettling your souls” by requiring observance to Jewish ceremonial law “to whom we gave no such commandment.”
.
The council decreed: “For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things:” to abstain from idolatry, immorality and blood. There is no mention here of the Jewish Sabbath or any of the many distinctives being insisted by modern Judaizers.
.
The Judaizers hate the New Testament, because it teaches that God loves and respects Gentiles as much as Jews (Romans 2:11; 10:12). Jesus rebuked the self-righteous and religious Pharisees and Sadducees. Jesus said they weren’t going to Heaven (Matthew 5:20). Self-righteousness is a road to Hell, fire and damnation (Romans 10:3-4; Romans 3:20)!There still is no amount of “good” that you can do that will pay for the sins that you have … YOU NEED FAITH IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS TO GET INTO HEAVEN. … The Lord Jesus Christ SHED HIS BLOOD for your sins. Righteousness does NOT come by the law,  and good works and rituals prescribed by false religions like Judaism, Seventh Day Adventists, Mormonism, Hinduism, etc.,
.
Apostle  Paul rebuked those who “were not straightforward about the Truth of the Gospel… knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by Faith in Jesus Christ… that we might be justified by Faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; and by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.” Galatians 2:14-16
.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
.
Galatians 5:4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who [attempt] [to] be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. 5 For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love. 7 You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? 8 This persuasion does not [come] from Him who calls you.
.
Colossians 2:20 Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as [though] living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations– 21 “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” 22 which all concern things which perish with the using–according to the commandments and doctrines of men?
.
Matthew 23:14 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
.
Matthew 23: 23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24 “Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
.
Colossians 2:20 Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as [though] living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations– 21 “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” 22 which all concern things which perish with the using–according to the commandments and doctrines of men?
.
Titus 1:13 This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, 14 not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth. 15 To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. 16 They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.
.
Luke 6:42 “Or how can you say to your brother, `Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye.
.
Matthew 23:13 13 “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
Matthew 23:35 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. 26 “Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
.
John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” 33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can you say, `You will be made free’?” 34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 “And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
.
Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
.
Philippians 1:8 For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ. 9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, 10 that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, 11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
.
1 Thessalonians 1:6 And you became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit
.
“The Gospel is not a call to repentance, or to amendment of our ways, to make restitution for past sins, or to promise to do better in the future. These things are proper in their place, but they do not constitute the Gospel; for the Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed. Do not make the mistake then of thinking that the Gospel is a call to duty or a call to reformation, a call to better your condition, to behave yourself in a more perfect way than you have been doing in the past …
.
Nor is the Gospel a demand that you give up the world, that you give up your sins, that you break off bad habits, and try to cultivate good ones. You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all.”;
.
And all  who today are seeking to reject our Christian calendar,  heritage and try to bring us back under Jewish culture and law they now really do need to read the words of the Apostle Paul: “O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of Faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?” Galatians 3:1-3
“But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.” (Romans 9:31)
.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3)
.
You need to become also a man or women  full of faith and the Holy Spirit too..
.
Matthew 21:12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13 And He said to them, “It is written, `My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a `den of thieves.’ ” 14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
.
Matthew 9:22 But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that hour.
.
Mark 10:52 Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.
.
Luke 17:6 So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, `Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.
.
Romans 8:1 [There] [is] therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
.
Acts 6:5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch, 6 whom they set before the apostles; and when they had prayed, they laid hands on them. 7 Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith.
.
1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you–unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
.
Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. 11 But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.
.
Romans 4:25 (Jesus Christ) Who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification.
.
Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life (resurrection).
.
Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
.
1 Peter 1:3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
.
 1 Corinthians 3:12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. 16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
.
Jesus said, Matthew 7:13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide [is] the gate and broad [is] the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” 14 “Because narrow [is] the gate and difficult [is] the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
.
Jesus also said,  Matthew 7:22 “Many will say to Me in that day, `Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 “And then I will declare to them, `I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'”
.
2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 4:1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. 5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
.
Galatians 2:4 And this occurred because of false brethren secretly brought in (who came in by stealth to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage), 5 to whom we did not yield submission even for an hour, that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
.
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
.
1 Corinthians 7:23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.
.
Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”.

CORRUPTIONS, ABORTION, SINS, adultery, divorce, fraud, ETC

NAME OF JESUS

The Person who is overly concerned with security, locking his doors tightly,  as he or she is too often is afraid to get robbed,  cause God does not protect him or his resources, likely himself is a thief, robber, embezzler, con artist, fraudster,  liar, etc, while  the honest person tends not to be  worried about   his doors being unlocked cause God is his protector, security.

.

READ THE BIBLE AND GET YOUR MORALITY STRAIGHT FROM GOD AND NOT FROM THE DEMONS FROM THE PITS OF HELL and THUS walk straight TOO NEXT..

.

God still does hates even Cheating, lying, stealing, Abortion, Adultery, Homosexuality, Divorce and such sins still get punished too  ..

.

Why the ONGOING  obsesses ions with SINS,  political CORRUPTIONS, ABORTION, adultery, divorce,  fraud, ETC.?

.

Jesus himself will not let it go…. he exposes and punishes still too.. Matthew 10: 27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

Luke 12: 3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

“And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, ‘If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it’” (Mark 8: 34-35).

“Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace” (Rom. 6:12-14).

“And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires” (Gal. 5:24).

1 John 2:15 KJV) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

.

Sharing what God’s Word says about morality and immorality is a loving act.

.

Also now determining what constitutes a loving act depends on first knowing what is true. The Bible is the sole truth we can rely on still too..

.

Now about the Lying, thieving, alcoholic, abusive persons, priests, pastors, Ministers, Leaders, Presidents, premiers, prime Ministers, Police who cannot even change themselves for the good are of no use to anyone as well. I too do rightfully do not have to accept any of those lying hypocrites, false teachers and false prophets .

.

People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.

.

Many Christians believe that abortion is wrong, because of their belief that the act of abortion is murdering an unborn baby. While people argue the point of conception and the viability of a fetus, there is no doubt that the Bible does condemn the taking of another person’s life see Genesis 9:5 – “Murder is forbidden.” (NLT) AND the people who are pro-choice because they believe that they have the ultimate say over what happens to their bodies. However, the Bible says that God has the ultimate say. He is in control of your body, because your body is God’s temple. Others argue that God gave us free will, thus allowing us to make a choice with our bodies. However, free will does not always mean we are free from sin. Whether you believe abortion is a sin or not, it is still biblical to care for our bodies. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 – “Don’t you realize that all of you together are the Temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in You. God will bring ruin to anyone who ruins this temple. For God’s temple is holy, and you Christians are that temple.” (NLT)

1 Corinthians 6:12-13 – “You may say ‘I am allowed to do anything.’ But I reply, ‘Not everything is good for you.’ And even though ‘I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything…But our bodies were not made for sexual immorality. They were made for the Lord, and the Lord cares about our bodies.” (NLT)

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (NIV).
Leviticus 18:22 – “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.” (NIV) Leviticus 20:13 – “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” (NIV)

 

Rom. 1:26-28, “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.”
 .
Homosexuality is clearly condemned in the Bible.  But, it also goes against the created order of God who made Adam, a man, and Eve, a woman — not two men, not two women — to carry out his command to fill and subdue the earth (Gen. 1:28).
 .
Unlike other sins, homosexuality has a heavy judgment administered by God Himself upon those who commit it – and support it. This judgment is simple in that those who practice it are given over to their passions – which means that their hearts are allowed to be hardened by their sins.
“For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error,” (Rom. 1:26-27).
 .
As a result, they can no longer see the error of what they are doing.  They will not seek forgiveness.  They will die in their sins.  They will face God’s holy condemnation.  But, that isn’t all.  In addition to the judgment of being given over to their sin, those involved in it also promote it and condemn others who don’t approve of their behavior.
 .
Sin is sin and the forgiveness of our sins is found in Christ alone and not in the false approval of any others.. . Homosexuality, Adultery, Divorce too now are not a special practice that is exempt from God’s righteous judgment simply because they claim they are born that way, or just want to be free to love, or say that it is normal. People are born with a tendency to lie. Does that make it okay? People want to love each other, but since when is “love” the determiner of what is right and wrong? If homosexuality is normal, then why is it practiced by so few? The great majority of people are heterosexual. The only hope for the homosexual, and all people who break God’s laws, is to realize that God is holy and he will rightfully judge all who have sinned against him by breaking his law (1 Kings 8:32; Ps. 9:8; 1 John 3:4). If he did not do this, then he would be approving of wrong doing. However, God is loving (1 John 4:8) patient (Rom. 2:4), wanting people to repent (Acts 17:30) and come a saving knowledge of him so they might be redeemed. What this means is that the sinner must turn to Christ, who is God the Son in flesh (John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9), who bore our sins in his body on the cross (1 Pet. 2:24), died and rose from the dead (1 Cor. 15:1-4), and made it possible for sinners to be saved from the righteous judgment of God by faith in what Jesus did on our behalf (2 Cor. 5:21) and be forgiven of their sins (Eph. 2:8). This is done receiving Christ (John 1:12), by believing in him and his sacrifice that is a payment for our sins to God the Father. Like any sinner, the homosexual needs to repent, receive Christ by faith, and be saved from God’s righteous judgment by trusting in Christ and the judgment that fell upon him on the cross. They need to pray and ask the Lord Jesus to save them. Don’t compromise your witness for a socially acceptable opinion that is void of rationality, godliness, and biblical truth. Instead, stand firm in the word that God has revealed

Christians are often asked by gay activists why they oppose same-sex “marriage.” “How does our marriage hurt you?” they ask. And one significant way it will hurt us: It will destroy religious freedom and free speech rights. Gays wrongfully do not like the Biblical truth about them to be openly shared.. It means that those hostile to our beliefs will attempt to bend us to their will to force us to not only accept gay “marriage,” but to condone it as well.Unacceptable.. You and I must demonstrate love to our gay neighbors, of course, remembering that we are ultimately engaged in spiritual warfare. But we should boldly stand up when our rights as citizens and the demands of our conscience are threatened. Furthere more his year we’ve seen Obama Care attack the autonomy of Catholic churches by attempting to force them, in violation of Catholic teaching, to pay for contraceptives and abortifacients for church employees. And a lesbian employee of a Catholic hospital in New York wrongfully had sued the hospital for denying her partner spousal health benefits. The Economic benefits is what most gays want not just the false approval of the others.
.

There is only one true theology regarding homosexuality. Orthodox theologians throughout the history of the church and today hold one singular view on what Scripture teaches on homosexuality. God hates it, opposes it, punishes it.. Everyone should be welcome in our churches, but welcoming sinners—which all of us are—must never involve affirming sins. Those committed to defending God’s wonderful design of male-female human sexuality and offering the hope of the Gospel to homosexual strugglers must not grow weary in their well-doing.

The normalization of homosexuality, which God calls an abomination, is one of the most immoral acts of our age. Many Christians RIGHTFULLY DO share a concern that false prophets are coming into our churches in sheep’s clothing supporting gays, immoralities, drug usage too..We all come to Christ as sinners in need of God’s grace and mercy, but the church has no business affirming or even appearing to affirm even the supposedly gay believers in their embrace of sin as central to their identities. And no Christian has the right when directly asked what the Bible teaches about homosexuality to answer ambiguously or equivocally, the Bible condemns  gays. It also equally condemns divorce and adultery too…

n

No one likes to be confronted with his or her error, and if we cannot judge the others how would Christians be alerted to the false prophets or heresies in the church? Should any Christian be prohibited from critiquing the bad acts, bad works of others .No!

.

Do we even have to filly “earn the right” by personal experience to identify porn use, adultery, fornication, incest, drunkenness, homosexuality or gossip as sins? Of Course Not. The Bible defines them as undeniable sins. It is, indeed, the Holy Spirit’s job to convict, but it is the job of Christians, particularly Christian leaders, to teach what God’s Word says in its entirety, which includes teaching about what constitutes sinful behavior. Articulating what the Bible teaches about homosexuality no more constitutes unscriptural judging than does articulating what the Bible teaches about lying, stealing, idolatry, blasphemy, or adultery.

“And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, ‘If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it’” (Mark 8: 34-35).

“Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace” (Rom. 6:12-14).

“And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires” (Gal. 5:24).

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” (II Cor. 5:17).

.

For 2 thousands of years the Christian Church undeniably consistently has not supported, gays, Lesbians.. Read what the Bible says for yourself firsthand  and now what others tell you what the Bible says..
.
Now Even US president Obama lies when he says he is a real Christian.. He is not, he is a Muslim supporter rather, a pervert, a false  gay supporter too.. and undeniable too.. I guess some of  this really troubles some of you and you you cannot sleep over it, well denial will not make it better for anyone now too

Hollywood values are characterized by decadence, narcissism, rampant drug use, extramarital sex leading to the spread of sexually-transmitted disease, abortion, lawlessness and the promotion of the homosexual agenda. Such values have a very negative influence on the life of individuals, and very often lead to death.  A 2006 poll by MSNBC said that 60% of Americans agree that “Hollywood’s values are not in line with the rest of America and that the quality of movies has diminished in recent years.” The lack of morals and values in Hollywood culture has been destroying the fabric of American culture, particularly the family. Hollywood values are deadly. Tourists in Hollywood can visit over 30 sites of typically self-inflicted Hollywood celebrity deaths.http://www.conservapedia.com/Hollywood_values
