BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

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

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

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

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

.

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

.

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

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

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

.

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

In The Old Testament

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

In The New Testament  APOSTLE PAUL’S FOREVIEW.

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

SON OF PERDITION,’

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

MYSTERY OF INIQUITY

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

THAT WICKED

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

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

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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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


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


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


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


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


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


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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

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

.

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

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

.

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

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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

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


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


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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

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

.

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

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

.

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

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


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

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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

The woman also drinks the cup of wrath.

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


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

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


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


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

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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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


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

.

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

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

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

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


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

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

.

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

.

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


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

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

.

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

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

.

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


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

.

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


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

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

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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

.

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

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.

John 15:19 (King James Version) If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you

Romans 10:1   Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.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:)7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;9 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.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.12 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.13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.    Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.  
.
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.

The New Israel is the CHRISTIAN Church.. which is now MADE UP with the old Israel BELIEVERS IN JESUS..  Galatians 3:28,29 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.
.
 It may surprise you to discover that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. It is only used of those who follow Jesus. Jesus and the apostles repudiated the notion that the Jews continued to enjoy a special status or relationship apart from faith in Jesus as their Messiah. And now ‘chosenness’ is the gift of God’s grace in Jesus Christ to all who trust in Him, irrespective of their racial origins. In the New Testament and the term is never used exclusively of the Jewish people, apart from as members of the Church. Jesus Christ is the ‘chosen’ one. Indeed in the New Testament the term is always used to refer to the Church, the Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:11).Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12) But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10) It is therefore no longer appropriate to designate the Jews as God’s ‘chosen people’. The term has been redefined to describe all those who trust in Jesus Christ.

(Mat 27:51 KJV) And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
.
(Luke 23:45 KJV) And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
.
(2 Cor 3:14 KJV) But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ.

NO NEW TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM WILL BE BUILT ANYMORE BY GOD FOR JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF IS THE NEW REBUILT TEMPLE
.
(Rev 21:1 KJV)  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
 3  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
 4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
 5  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
 6  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
 7  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
 8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
 9  And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
 10  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
 11  Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
 12  And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
 13  On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
 14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
 15  And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
 16  And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
 17  And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
 18  And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
 19  And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
 20  The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
 21  And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
 22  And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
 23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
 24  And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
 25  And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
 26  And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
 27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
 22:1  And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
 2  In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
 3  And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
 4  And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
 5  And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
 6  And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
 7  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
 8  And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things.
 9  Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
 10  And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
 11  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
 12  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
 13  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
 14  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
 15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
 16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
 17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
 18  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
 19  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
 20  He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
 21  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you

2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Mark 11:17 – 19:And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. And when even was come, he went out of the city.

.

Mat 21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!

.

 Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.  

.

Luke 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel

.

Here is what everyone has to know, admit, Pentecostals and Baptists, Jews, Messianic Jews, all ye Bible lovers now  included,  Jesus own actual reply to the Question he was asked Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? and his reply was Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. and 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.  Now Jesus and the New testament does not talk about a partial, eventual restoration of the Nation of Israel or earthly  Jersualem as God’s center.. but a total dispertion next of the Jews.. Luke 23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

I have studied the subject of end times prophecy for 50 years, talked to some of the greatest preachers on the subject even face to face.. and there is nothing really to support most of these prophecy nuts.. It is mostly dispensationalist lies where most of the expositors cannot agree even with each other.. last week a friend told me he could have bough a car on those past useless, false prophecy books, tapes, videos, conferences he had wasted money for 122 years.. Look at what the angel said to Daniel on this subject
Dan 12: 1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. 5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Many people seem to forget this.. while they try to force their views , interpretations without the holy Spirit..

,

Since God is sovereign and the New Testament was written in Greek and Aramaic according to his will and not in Hebrew. Could not have God writtten the New Testament rather in Hebrew and why did he not.? Why? it is cause He got rid of the old covenant and made a new covenant that wasn’t not Jewish anymore.. that included now the gentiles..

.

It may surprise you to discover that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. It is only used of those who follow Jesus.

Because of their rejection of Jesus Christ as their savior, Lord Messiah all of the Jews stopped being God’s chosen people, their temple was destroyed permanently, and no new temple will be rebuilt with God’s approval  anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God, https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/are-you-a-real-christian-or-a-pretender-imposter-still/

.

nor does God approve of the Jews as having have any rights to the promised land anymore as well..  they the Jews like Cain are trying to reestablish their own false reilgion now instead..

.

 (Heb 11:4 KJV)  By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

.

(1 John 3:12 KJV)  Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

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).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Christianity began as a revision of Judaism. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

John 8: 1    Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.2    And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. .. .13    The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.14    Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.15    Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.16    And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.17    It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.18    I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.19    Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.20    These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.21    Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.22    Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.23    And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.24    I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.25    Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.26    I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.27    They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.28    Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.29    And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.30    As he spake these words, many believed on him.31    Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;32    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.33    They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?34    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.35    And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.36    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.37    I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.38    I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.39    They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.40    But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.41    Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.42    Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.43    Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.44    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.45    And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.46    Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?47    He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.48    Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?49    Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.50    And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.51    Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.52    Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.53    Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?54    Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:55    Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.56    Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.57    Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?58    Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.59    Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

1 Thessalonians 2: 1    For yourselves, brethren, know our entrance in unto you, that it was not in vain:2    But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention.3    For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:4    But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.5    For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:6    Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.7    But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:8    So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.9    For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.10    Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:11    As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children,12    That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.13    For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.14    For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:15    Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:16    Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.17    But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.18    Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.19    For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?20    For ye are our glory and joy.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE IN EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN

 

 

crucifixionTHY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE IN EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN!  (Mt.6:10.)

IT WAS IN REVELATION, CHAPTER 19, THAT WE READ JOHN’S MAGNIFICENT, MARVELLOUS DESCRIPTION OF JESUS CHRIST’S COMING WITH THE HOSTS OF HEAVEN to defeat & destroy the Antichrist & his fiendish forces at the awesome Battle of Armageddon.

Well, it’s obvious that many of the unsaved are going to survive the Wrath of God & the Battle of Armageddon & live on into the Millennium! Granted, as the Lord must be extra merciful to them to allow them to live through all that!

Revelation 20:
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The thousand years appears nowhere in the sixty-six books, 1,189 chapters, 31,173 verses of the Bible except in this one passage where it occurs six times in six consecutive verses.

NOW MANY PEOPLE SPECULATE WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON EARTH AND WHO WILL DWELL THERE.. WE NEED TO STILL DWELL ONLY WHAT THE SCRIPTURES SPECIFCALY DO TELL US.

God has already fulfilled the personal aspects of the Abrahamic covenant; Abraham did go to the Promised Land, he did have many descendants, and he is the forefather of many nations. Several hundred years after Abraham, Joshua led the Israelites to claim ownership of the Promised Land.

Still some promises of God are still not fulfilled.. AND SUPPOSEDLY THEY NEXT WILL BE FULLFILED DURING THE MILLENNIUM?

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they ( alone) lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

GOD IS GOING TO GIVE THEM, THOSE WHO DESERVE IT & ARE WORTHY, ANOTHER CHANCE? The Lord will set up His Kingdom here on Earth for a thousand years to try to salvage what He can & who He can & give them another chance, or perhaps their first chance, to see the actual Kingdom of God & hear His voice & His laws & His rules & His Words & repent!–To believe & receive & repent & accept Him as their King!

Isaiah 65:20-25 says, “There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.”

Isaiah 11:
1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.
15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod.
16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree, the myrtle and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine and the box tree together, that they may see and know, and consider and understand together, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it. Isaiah 41:18-20

For the LORD will comfort Zion, he will comfort all her waste places; he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. Isaiah 51:3

Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. Isaiah 55:13

As you can see from these words of GOD, the Old Testament scriptures speak in no uncertain terms about the future glorious and literal reign of Messiah on Earth. The Christian and some Jewish people were, and still are, anticipating it.

Following the battle of Armageddon, Christ will literally set foot on the Mount of Olives, THAT IS VERY SIGNIFICANT, IT PROCLAIMS CHRIST ACTUAL PHYISCAL OWNERSHIP CLAIM NOW OF THE LAND OF ISRAEL, AND EARTH HE HAS PURCAHSED WITH HIS OWN BLOOD, LIFE .. . And, as he touches down there, he will cause huge topographical changes to the entire area. Then, he will proceed on into Jerusalem through the Eastern Gate and proceed on up to the temple. There, he will remain to govern and reign over all the Earth for one thousand years. As you have it in Zechariah 14:3­4,Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and the half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. (KJV) ,

Second Thessalonians 1:7-9, And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God [battle of Armageddon], and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: [after the preaching of the 144,000, the two witnesses and God’s angel who circumvented the globe] who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power…

Matthew 25:31-46,When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And he will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in; I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and take you in, or naked and clothe you? Or when did we see you sick, or in prison, and come to you? And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me. Then he will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: ‘for I was hungry and you gave me no food; I was thirsty and you gave me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take me in, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ Then they also will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you? Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.

Therefore I will save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it. Ezekiel 34:22-24

For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: and though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God; whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me [i.e. … frightened out of his wits]. Job 19:25-27

Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us. He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the LORD shall hold them in derision. Then he shall speak to them in his wrath, and distress them in his deep displeasure: yet I have set my King on my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the LORD has said to me, ‘You are my Son, today I have begotten you. Ask of me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in him. PS 2

First Corinthians 15:25-26,For he must reign till he has put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

At that time Jerusalem shall be called The Throne of the LORD, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem. No more shall they follow the dictates of their evil hearts. Jeremiah 3:17

And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, on them there will be no rain. If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the LORD strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. Zechariah 14:17-18

Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? First Corinthians 6:2

If we endure, we shall also reign with him. If we deny him, he also will deny us. Second Timothy 2:12

And he who overcomes, and keeps my works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations; ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’; as I also have received from my Father… Revelation 2:26-27

So Jesus said to them, ‘Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of his glory, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.’ Matthew 19:28

It shall come to pass in that day that the LORD will punish on high the host of exalted ones, and on the earth the kings of the earth. They will be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and will be shut up in the prison; after many days they will be punished. Then the moon will be disgraced and the sun ashamed; for the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem and before his elders, gloriously. Isaiah 24:21-23 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. …

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Second Peter 3:7, 10-12

John 3:36, He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. Second Corinthians 5:21 says, For he made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in him. 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.

For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. Second Peter 3:5-7

And he said to me, ’It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be my son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
Rev. 21:6-8

Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to me. Hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you; the sure mercies of David. Isaiah 55:1­3,

…who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. First Peter1:5:

about the “The New Covenant”

Now about the law..

Keep all the commandements of God in the old testament? but that was the old testament.. have you yet rightfully rather made the transition to the New Testament? no circumcission or tithing required too.. only Love God, love others, be not drunk with wine, be filled with the Holy Spirit? It is all very simple Jesus said that now basically only two laws apply to all persons even.. 1 love God, and 2 love others, BUT NOW as well as 3 be filled with the Holy Spirit and all else will fall into place.
.
Tell me also if there is one Gospel, one Jesus Christ, one Holy Spirit now how come  come there are thousands of so called Christian denominations disagreeing with  each other these days still.. it is cause they are still clearly Bible ignorant, worshipping false and following the teaching of MERE MEN  over the what the Bible says for a start and personaly do not read the Bible or even know Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit still.. 95 percent of Christians do not read the Bible or pray  more than 5 minutes a day shows the basic Christian problem.. http://sacredtruths.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/god-can-speak-directly-to-you/
.
“I NEVER hear Him, God, PROPHETICALLY tell anybody to WITNESS for Jesus MORE, TESTIFY of Jesus to the SINNER more, or GET OUT and EVANGELIZE the LOST with the Gospel of Jesus Christ MORE?”  because  the Gospel basic is Love God, Love others, be filled with the Holy Spirit and then all else will follow. Iroincally most of the evangelicals I encounter do not  realy have love for others or the Holy S…pirit so how are they loving God too now?  The falsely do preach their partial  Gospel to others  out of guiilt then..  1 John 2:7  Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8  Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. :9  He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. 10  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. 11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth,

Jean-Louis Laflamme ~~~”The Biblical Explanation of…”The New Covenant”~~~

…”Early Christians may have been surprised that any biblical command including the sacrifices and rituals “could become unnecessary”. If God had given these laws, who could say that they were done away? Only one authority could do away with God-given commands: God. So let’s look to the New Testament to see the authority for doing away with any of God’s laws…

“The New Testament does not itemize all the valid Old Testament laws, nor all the obsolete ones. Some laws unclean meats, sin sacrifices, washings are mentioned; others tassels on garments, grain offerings are not. The New Testament quotes some Old Testament commands with approval; others are quoted as being old and inadequate or in need of replacement…Matthew 5:31-37…Commands from Leviticus and Deuteronomy are quoted as valid, for example, while other commands from the same sections are treated as obsolete. Some are moral and eternal; others are not…

…”Although the New Testament cites many individual Old Testament laws as valid, it does not specify a general category as permanently valid…”However”, when it declares laws “obsolete” it uses large categories. In Acts 15, it is “the Law of Moses.” In 1 Corinthians 9:20, it is “the law.” In Galatians 3:17, it is “the law” that came 430 years after Abraham, that is, at the time of Moses. In Ephesians 2:15 it is “the law with its commandments and ordinances,” the law that separated Jews from Gentiles”

“In Hebrews 8:13 it is the Sinai covenant. Although various terms are used, there is a consistency in what is meant. A large category of law is being declared obsolete. That does not mean that every command within the category is obsolete, but the package itself is…Let’s not forget that before Jesus came the old law was kept…but after Jesus came…the New Covenant was introduce by Jesus Himself…the old covenant was not in force any longer…Matthew 11:13, Galatians 3:19 and 24, Romans 10:4…Jesus became the newer law of the covenant…

…”What is the New Testament explanation for this significant change in divinely given laws?…It is a change in covenants, or the agreements between God and humanity…from the “Old Covenant” to the “New Covenant”…He became the “New Testament”…

“Why should the death of Jesus-Christ cause God-given laws to become outdated?… The Bible gives a simple explanation: Christ brought a new covenant. The book of Hebrews makes this clear in chapters 7 to 10. Although the focus in Hebrews is on the ceremonial laws relevant to the priesthood, the conclusion is more broadly stated, it is the covenant itself that is obsolete 8:13 A new covenant has replaced the Sinai-Moses covenant. The new covenant has some similarities to the old, but it is a new covenant…

…”Hebrews uses strong terms: laws are set aside, changed, abrogated, abolished, because one covenant has ended and another has begun. Of course, since the old and the new covenants were given by the same God, we should expect some similarities. We should expect moral laws to be found in both covenants. It should be no surprise that laws against adultery, which existed before Abraham, should also be included in the Sinai covenant, a later and larger package of laws. But we accept those laws as valid today not because they were given to Moses the fact that a law was given to Moses does not automatically make it valid, but for other reasons”…

“Paul tells us that the Law of Moses was a temporary addition to the Abrahamic promises…Galatians 3:16-25…The Sinai covenant, which includes civil laws and ceremonial laws, was designed to come to an end when Christ came. The Scriptures are not annulled, of course, but the laws there are no longer binding…

…”This is brought out especially clearly in the book of Galatians, chapters 3 and 4. Let’s go through these chapters verse by verse, to “make sure” that we are getting each verse in its context…

~~Galatians 3: the law and the Spirit~~
Paul, who had seen many things in his ministry, was flabbergasted with the Galatian Christians. He was aghast that they were being persuaded by a foolish idea. He wrote a strongly worded letter to stop this nonsense. In Galatians 3:1 Paul wrote: “You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus-Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.”

…”Here’s the starting point, Paul says: Jesus-Christ has been “crucified”. That is the foundation on which we build. His crucifixion changes everything, as Paul will explain…let’s keep on reading the bible…

“I would like to learn just one thing from you,” Paul writes…..”Did you receive the Holy-Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard?” Galatians 3:2… Obviously, they received the Spirit through faith, by accepting what they heard. This is another foundational point. Paul was astounded that the Galatians did not see the consequences of their experience with the Holy-Spirit. But apparently someone was telling them that they were saved only if they observed “the law”…

…”Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Holy-Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?” Galatians 3:3…The Galatian Christians were apparently being taught that they needed to add the law to their faith. Many “False teachers” were saying that they needed to progress further in the faith by observing the Torah. They were teaching circumcision and the entire Law of Moses…Galatians 5:2-3; Acts 15:5…

“Paul says this is a ridiculous idea, if a person is given the Holy-Spirit on the basis of faith, without deserving this gift, then Christianity is based on faith, and there is no place for works as far as salvation is concerned. Paul will later comment on how Christians should behave in response to Christ’s work, but here he makes it clear that salvation is on the foundation of faith in what Jesus-Christ has done. Our goal “cannot be attained by human effort”, and that is “why Jesus died on the cross”… Whatever work had to be done, “He did on the cross”. That is our foundation!”…

…”Paul asks, “Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard?”…Galatians 3:5…The people had seen miracles in their midst. And it came on the basis of faith, not of works of the Law…

“Paul then supports his argument from the Torah itself. “Consider Abraham,” he said, quoting from Genesis 15:6: “He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Paul concludes, “Understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham”…Galatians 3:6-7…

…”Paul’s point is that even in the Old Testament, a right relationship with God came through faith. Abraham was accounted righteous on the basis of faith, not because of his obedience. If we have faith, then we are accepted just as Abraham was!

“Can non-Jewish people really have a relationship with God on that kind of basis? Yes, says Paul, and he again quotes the Torah: “The Scripture foresaw that God would left the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: ‘All nations will be blessed through you’” Galatians 3:8…The Torah says that non-Jews will be blessed through Abraham, and that blessing is by faith, not by the law. Abraham did not need to be given the Law of Moses, and his spiritual followers do not need it, either…..

…”Paul concludes, “Those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith” Galatians 3:9…”God’s blessing is by faith”…

~~~”The Law vs. faith”~~~
“The law brings penalties,not blessing. “All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law’” Galatians 3:10…The law is not a way to earn favor with God. It functions in the reverse way, since we all fall short of its demands. If we think we have to observe the Torah, if we want to be under the law, we will be under its condemnation…

…”No one is justified before God by the law, because, ‘The righteous will live by faith.’ The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, ‘The man who does these things will live by them’”…Galatians 3:11-12…Paul is contrasting “faith and law”… Righteous people should live by faith…Habakkuk 2:4…but the law is based on performance…Leviticus 18:5…The law emphasizes human effort, but salvation is given by grace through faith in what Jesus-Christ has done…

“Law-keeping cannot earn us God’s favor. If we look to it, it can bring only a “curse” since we all fall short. But even in the curse, there is good news in the crucifixion of Christ: “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree’”…Galatians 3:13… quoting Deuteronomy 21:23…The law demanded a penalty for law-breaking, and Jesus-Christ experienced the worst penalty of the law…….

…”Paul is using several lines of reasoning to show that Christians are not under the authority of the Law of Moses; we are not obligated to obey it. Not only is the law ineffective, bringing a curse rather than a blessing, “Jesus has also paid” its worst penalty…”His crucifixion”…gives Paul the basis for saying that Christians are not under the law…why can people understand that?…

“He 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 Holy-Spirit”…Galatians 3:14…The blessing is by faith as opposed to the law…

“God’s promise not changed by the Law”
Paul then argues from another angle, using the example of a contract. “Let me take an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or add to a human covenant that has been duly established, so it is in this case”…Galatians 3:15…

…”Paul is talking about God’s promise to Abraham, which includes being accounted righteous by faith. He writes, “The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say ‘and to seeds,’ meaning many people, but ‘and to your seed,’ meaning one person, who is Christ”…Galatians 3:16…

“Here Paul notes that the word seed is singular. Although the singular word can be used for many seeds, Paul is saying that this scripture finds its fulfillment most perfectly in one Seed, Jesus-Christ. It is through him that Gentiles can become part of Abraham’s descendants…Galatians 3:29…

…”The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise” Galatians 3:17…What law is Paul talking about? The law given 430 years after Abraham, the Law of Moses. The laws that came through Moses cannot change the fact that God accepts people as righteous on the basis of faith, not by human efforts”…

“Paul then reasons, “For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on a promise; but God in his grace gave it to Abraham through a promise” …Galatians 3:18…Either it is one way or the other, either by laws and works, or by faith and gift. Paul does not try to combine the two. Rather, he is saying they cannot be combined…

~~~”Purpose of the Law”~~~
“Why did God give the law? Paul answers: “It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come”…Galatians 3:19…Were laws added because the people were already breaking them? Or were they added so that people could see more clearly that they were sinners? Either way, the Law of Moses was added for only a certain length of time until Christ came. After that, the Law of Moses became obsolete. The law added 430 years after Abraham became obsolete!”

…”Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law” Galatians 3:21…The law did not nullify the promise of salvation by faith, for it was not designed as another means of salvation. If there was any way possible for laws to bring us right standing with God, then God would have given us those laws. But the Law of Moses is not designed to give us eternal life…

“People who think they can improve their standing with God through the law are misunderstanding its purpose and are not accepting the biblical evidence that salvation is simply by faith, without any role for human efforts. We receive the Spirit by faith and are counted righteous by faith, without any need to add the Law of Moses…

…”The law cannot give life!”…because we all fall short of what it requires. “The Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe”…Galatians 3:22…Instead of giving life, the law prescribes penalties, and the result is that the promise of salvation can come only through God’s grace. The law makes it clear that we all fall short and need the salvation that Jesus offers by faith.

“But before faith in Christ came, “we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed”…Galatians 3:23…The Jews were under the restrictions of the law, under its temporary jurisdiction or custody…

…”So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith” Galatians 3:24…The law had authority from Moses until Christ. It showed that humans are prisoners of sin, unable to save themselves through human effort. It showed that salvation can be received only through faith, not by law…

“Now that the Law of Moses has fulfilled its purpose, however, it has become obsolete: “Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law”…Galatians 3:25…The Torah does not have authority over us. It is not a way to get right with God. It is not a way to enter his kingdom nor a way to stay in his kingdom nor a way to improve our standing with God…

…”Because of Jesus’ crucifixion, our relationship with God depends entirely on faith. “You are all children of God through faith in Christ-Jesus”…Galatians 3:26…

“Since Christ is the descendant of Abraham, and we belong to Christ, then we are also descendants of Abraham and inheritors of the promise of salvation…Galatians 3:29…Through faith in Christ, we inherit the promise given to Abraham by faith!

…”When it comes to inheriting Abraham’s promise, there is neither Jew nor Greek all ethnic groups may inherit. In Christ, even slaves can receive an inheritance from Abraham. In salvation, there is likewise no difference between male and female all have equal rights to inherit the promise…Galatians 3:28…

~~~”Gentiles no longer slaves”~~~
“Gentiles, who were not under the Law of Moses, also become inheritors through Christ, so at this point Paul begins to use the word you again: “Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, ‘Abba, Father.’ So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir”…Galatians 4:6-7…

…”Since God had given the Holy-Spirit to these Gentile Christians, that was proof that they were his children, with the right to inherit the promise. They were no longer slaves under a restrictive authority. But what kind of slavery had Jesus redeemed them from?…

“Paul explains: “Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods”…Galatians 4:9…They had been enslaved by pagan religions…

…”But now that you know God or rather are known by God how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable principles? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again?” The Gentile Christians, having been rescued from slavery, were thinking of returning to bondage. They wouldn’t have put it in those words, of course, but Paul is pointing out that this is what it amounts to…

“Paul uses the uncommon Greek word stoicheia here for principles of the Galatian heresy, the same word he used in Galatians 4:3…for the slavery “we” had under the old covenant “basic principles.” The context of the letter makes it clear that the slavery the Galatians were falling back into was an obligation to old covenant customs…

…”Paul then mentions one way they were falling back into servitude: “You are observing special days and months and seasons and years!”…Galatians 4:10…In a heresy that involved circumcision and the Law of Moses, it is not difficult to guess what sort of days, months, seasons and years were being advocated. The old covenant said a lot about special times…

“Hagar is here associated with the old covenant, the covenant made at Mount Sinai and in Paul’s day centered in Jerusalem. This covenant produces slave children, and all who are under the old covenant are in slavery. Paul was flabbergasted as to why the Galatians were being tempted to fall into this slavery, an old covenant slavery that included the observance of special days and months and seasons and years…Galatians 4:9-10…

…”But Christians are not under the old covenant. “The Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother…. Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise”…Galatians 4:26, 28…Christians are children of Abraham’s promise, and are free, which means, in this context, free of old covenant restrictions…

~~~”Eliminate slavery”~~~
Paul then points out another useful application of the analogy: “The son born in the ordinary way..Ishmael..persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit..Isaac.. It is the same now”…Galatians 4:29…That is, the Jewish children of the old covenant were persecuting the children of the new covenant. The Judaizers were pressuring the Gentile Christians to conform to the old covenant…

…”Paul then makes his point, again from the Scriptures that the people respected: “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’” Genesis 21:10…The application is clear: Get rid of all those who teach the old covenant. Do not listen to them, for they will not inherit the promises of Abraham …Galatians 5:2…

“Paul is struggling for the spiritual survival of the Galatian Christians. He does not mince his words or beat around the bush. Rather, he makes it clear: The old covenant is slavery and you must get rid of it. Christian life is not found in the old covenant…

…”Therefore, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman”…Galatians 4:31…We are children of the new covenant, not the old. We cannot have both we must choose the new…

~Scripture says that a large category of law is obsolete~
~Paul says that salvation is by faith, not law~
~Law can only declare us guilty, not rescue us~
~The law cannot affect the promise of salvation by faith~
~The law of Moses was designed to be temporary~
~Being obligated to the law of Moses is like slavery~

Some   Christians today interpret Romans 11:26 as applying to the end of the seven-year tribulation when Jesus appears in the clouds at His Second Coming. In other words, they don’t apply the verse to all Jews throughout history, but only to “all Jews” who are alive at the end. Supposedly, at the end of the tribulation, all remaining Jews in Israel will look up, see Christ coming in the clouds, realize He is the true Messiah, believe in Him, and thus “All Israel will be saved.”This is a false teaching, Rather the immediate context of Romans 11:26 is vs. 25. When “the fullness of the Gentiles has come in,” then “all Israel will be saved.” Or, to be exact, “And so all Israel will be saved.” In other words, the coming in of the fullness or total number of the Gentiles results in “all Israel” …being saved. Paul’s idea seems to be that when all Gentiles (totally, throughout history) have come in, that is, have been grafted into the Vine, they, uniting with all Jews who have become believers, will form the total number of the saved.The Israel of God is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who believe in Jesus Christ (Gal. 3:29). The “all Israel that is saved” does not apply to all Jews throughout history, nor can it apply to a select favored group who become instant believers when Jesus Christ comes crashing down through the sky. By that time, it is too late to believe.  https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/07/24/jews-and-their-own-need-of-salvation-by-jesus-christ-still-too/
Now we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be heard now as well.. I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well, and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. Clearly some bad people falsely still DO DISALLOW THIS RIGHT… the realy bad persons especially as even I know this for sure as they falsely refuse the whole to be shared even as as to who they are firstly. They respond with a personal attack, inquisition, censorship, lies, slanders, diversions, distortions, instead of facing, dealing with the facts, truths being presented. Confirming to many what they still are really like, immoral, abusive bullies. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/now-about-the-abusers-bullies-thugs-proud-oppressors-war-mongers/

The fall of Jerusalem

The Fall of Jerusalem

James 4:4 (King James Version) Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
.
1 John 2:15-17 (King James Version) 15 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.
.
John 15:19 (King James Version) If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you
.
Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
.
Romans 10:1   Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.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:)7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;9 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.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.12 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.13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.    Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.  
.
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.

The New Israel is the CHRISTIAN Church.. which is now MADE UP with the old Israel BELIEVERS IN JESUS..  Galatians 3:28,29 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.
.
 It may surprise you to discover that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. It is only used of those who follow Jesus. Jesus and the apostles repudiated the notion that the Jews continued to enjoy a special status or relationship apart from faith in Jesus as their Messiah. And now ‘chosenness’ is the gift of God’s grace in Jesus Christ to all who trust in Him, irrespective of their racial origins. In the New Testament and the term is never used exclusively of the Jewish people, apart from as members of the Church. Jesus Christ is the ‘chosen’ one. Indeed in the New Testament the term is always used to refer to the Church, the Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:11).Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12) But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10) It is therefore no longer appropriate to designate the Jews as God’s ‘chosen people’. The term has been redefined to describe all those who trust in Jesus Christ.
.
(Mat 27:51 KJV) And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
.
(Luke 23:45 KJV) And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
.
(2 Cor 3:14 KJV) But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ.

NO NEW TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM WILL BE BUILT ANYMORE BY GOD FOR JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF IS THE NEW REBUILT TEMPLE
.
(Rev 21:1 KJV)  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
 3  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
 4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
 5  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
 6  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
 7  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
 8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
 9  And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
 10  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
 11  Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
 12  And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
 13  On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
 14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
 15  And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
 16  And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
 17  And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
 18  And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
 19  And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
 20  The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
 21  And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
 22  And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
 23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
 24  And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
 25  And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
 26  And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
 27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
 22:1  And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
 2  In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
 3  And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
 4  And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
 5  And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
 6  And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
 7  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
 8  And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things.
 9  Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
 10  And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
 11  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
 12  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
 13  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
 14  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
 15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
 16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
 17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
 18  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
 19  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
 20  He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
 21  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you

Luke 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel

.

Here is what everyone has to know, admit, Pentecostals and Baptists, Jews, Messianic Jews, all ye Bible lovers now  included,  Jesus own actual reply to the Question he was asked Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? and his reply was Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. and 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.  Now Jesus and the New testament does not talk about a partial, eventual restoration of the Nation of Israel or earthly  Jersualem as God’s center.. but a total dispertion next of the Jews.. Luke 23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

.

Since God is sovereign and the New Testament was written in Greek and Aramaic according to his will and not in Hebrew. Could not have God writtten the New Testament rather in Hebrew and why did he not.? Why? it is cause He got rid of the old covenant and made a new covenant that wasn’t not Jewish anymore.. that included now the gentiles..

.

It may surprise you to discover that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. It is only used of those who follow Jesus.

Because of their rejection of Jesus Christ as their savior, Lord Messiah all of the Jews stopped being God’s chosen people, their temple was destroyed permanently, and no new temple will be rebuilt with God’s approval  anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God, https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/are-you-a-real-christian-or-a-pretender-imposter-still/

.

nor does God approve of the Jews as having have any rights to the promised land anymore as well..  they the Jews like Cain are trying to reestablish their own false religion now instead..

.

 (Heb 11:4 KJV)  By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

(1 John 3:12 KJV)  Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

(Jude 1:11 KJV)  Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

.

A relationship with God is not like watching the TV.. you do not choose and pick what Channels to watch, or to follow.. the relationship is more like using a phone, a 2 way conversation.. you talk and listen. I too once was praying for a house, car, job, money but God rather was trying to tell me to go to the Hospital cause I seriously needed medical care.. in fact I needed heart surgery, and I often get prayer requests, demands even from people for money, etc., and seems the only time they contact me and God is when they need or want something.. that is not real Christianity.. God says His ways are not our ways.. Seek God and get His will, help and not man’s help..

.

IF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS YOUR TEACHER HELPER AND GUIDE YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO ASK QUESTIONS FROM ANY MAN?

The false Christian Zionism Movement. The Christian Zionist movement IS PART OF THE GREAT DECEPTION where we falsely are being falsely lectured by them for hour upon hour as to why we should be supporting the state of Israel unconditionally, that the ethical traditions of Judaism are an inspiration to all who seek God, justice and equality in our world, that the survival of the Jewish people is dependent upon the existence of the Zionist state of Israel. and lectured with more distortions, lies even over us even being honestly even concerned , troubled when injustice is committed. We are especially troubled when it is perpetuated through the appropriation of Christian theology for ideological purposes. Such unacceptable Biblical misappropriation is Christian Zionism. We all need to be concerned with any of the Palestinian calls for justice and human rights in also their land of their birth.
 .
The strategy of these losers, the false Hirelings, false Prophets, is still their false pursuit of power, fame, money and not glory to Jesus Christ. They also are so busy trying to enter into heaven by their own good works so they thus worrying about how to change the others, but are they themselves firstly now even walking in the right path?  
 .
And  notice these truths
 
1 Prophetic dispensationalists sell their material over giving it away freely, since they clearly do not live by faith in God to provide their needs.
 
2 Prophetic dispensationalists rarely even agree amongst themselves.
 
3: Prophetic dispensationalists tend falsely to deny the Holy Spiritual gifts of tongues and healings even the Baptism of the Holy Spirit cause they are not led by God but by mere men.
 
4 The Wishful thinking Rapture was proposed by the false Plymouth Brethren Darby preacher only in the 1800’s to falsely deny the reality of Christians being persecuted here one Earth during the tribulation. In fact most present Christians are facing severe tribulation in one form or another here on earth and ironically the Plymouth Brethren, dispensationalists in their false denial do a lot of the persecution of real Christians.   John 17:15 (JESUS praying to The Father) “I pray NOT that thou shouldest TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, but that thou should keep them from evil.”  
 
.
 
John 2:15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. 8 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign showest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? 19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 1 But he spake of the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. 
 .
Note this also now  where in the New Testament does it now say, “Want to be a better Christian? Become a Jew, Observe Old Testament laws, Study the Old Testament, Help the Jews get back their once promised land.. or that the Jews should return to Israel after God had kicked them out the second time.. rather the New Testament does says follow after Jesus Christ, and be now filled with the Holy Spirit
 .
SALVATION still is only by the finished work of the lord Jesus Christ!!
 
(Mat 27:51 KJV) And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
 
(Luke 23:45 KJV) And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
 
(2 Cor 3:14 KJV) But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ.
 
 
“…repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
.
The typological true   hermeneutic of taking the  Old Covenant promises previously made to Israel and applying them to the Church can be traced systematically through the writings of the post-Apostolic Fathers, The post-Apostolic Church Fathers believed that the Jews ceased to be God’s ‘chosen people’ when they rejected Jesus Christ. Instead they understood the church to be the new Israel. This view finds is basis within the New Testament. Speaking to the Jews shortly before his crucifixion, Jesus pronounced, “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.” (Matthew 21:43).
.
It is not surprising that among the Middle East churches generally, Christian Zionism is regarded as a devious heresy and an unwelcome and alien intrusion into their culture, which advocates an ethnocentric and nationalist political agenda running counter to their work of reconciliation, and patient witness among both Jews and Muslims
.
ZIONISM IS  NON CHRISTIAN, AND HERE IS WHAT MANY OTHERS ALSO DO SAY ABOUT IT.
.
The Pharisees Jesus denounced have not gone away, but have established an even more formidable control mechanism in our society than ever existed in Christ’s mortal lifetime. “Fundamentalist Christians” or Evangelical Zionists are, characteristically, Zionist, not Christian.  In practice, they reject the teaching of Jesus in the New Testament: that each of us is equally precious in the eyes of the Lord.   They  staunchly support Israel’s right to defend itself, whether from Iran’s nuclear program, Gaza missile attacks, or another Palestinian intifada in the West Bank. They are also becoming increasingly vocal supporters of Israel’s claim to Jerusalem as its undivided and eternal capital, and thus its right to build up Jewish neighborhoods – even in Palestinian areas that Israel took over during the 1967 war with its Arab neighbors. Christian Zionists tend to believe that God promised the whole land of Israel to the Jews, including the West Bank, and have expressed skepticism of the viability of land-for-peace formulas;
.
The false Christian Zionism Movement.  Increasingly, as we all can readily see on Facebook too Israel is not only cultivating the need for the  love of the Holy Land but it is also courting  political support by tapping into the shared religious heritage of Judaism and Christianity to boost everything from profitable  tourism to Israel’s standing on the world stage.Christian Zionism, the belief that the current Zionist state of Israel is an unambiguous portent of the imminent return of Christ, is said to be the largest growing cult in America. The Christian Zionist movement IS PART OF THE GREAT DECEPTION where we falsely are being falsely lectured by them for hour upon hour as to why we should be supporting the state of Israel unconditionally, that the ethical traditions of Judaism are an inspiration to all who seek God, justice and equality in our world, that the survival of the Jewish people is dependent upon the existence of the Zionist state of Israel. and lectured with more distortions, lies even over us even being honestly even concerned , troubled when injustice is committed. We are especially troubled when it is perpetuated through the appropriation of Christian theology for ideological purposes. Such unacceptable Biblical misappropriation is Christian Zionism. We all need to be concerned with any of the Palestinian calls for justice and human rights in also their land of their birth.

About these false Future prophecy Sensationalists.. is it not funny how so  many of the future prophecy dispensationalists still cannot agree on the specifics.. and how they differ so much about it now too.. very few agree.. there specifics are even inapplicable..
 .
If Future Prophecy is so viable now then why did not God tell Daniel the specifics.. but rather the Angel said to Daniel forget about it.. cause God is in control ..Dan 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. 8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. 11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the 13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
 .
Imagine this the teachings of Jesus recorded in this especially Matthew 24, are commonly misapplied by these false people looking for future signs and understanding about the of the end of the world. Whereas the passage refers to the prophetic shortly to the Jewish end of the world occurring by the Roman dispersions of the Jews. “After numerous charges against the scribes and Pharisees for their mistreatment of God’s Law, Jesus concludes his condemnation by prophesying the consequences of their sins. The Jews had killed God’s prophets in the past. Though this current generation thought they were above such misdeeds, Jesus stated that they would continue to kill righteous people. They were not above the misdeeds of their forefathers, they were just as guilty. The punishment for killing God’s people would fall upon this very generation.” http://www.lavistachurchofchrist.org/LVstudies/GospelAccounts/a47FallOfJerusalem.html
 .
Jesus has not revealed to us too much about the prophetic future.. but too many people seem too readily to expound on the subject.. and they now do too often too misquote inapplicable old and new testament verses.. especially the dispensationalists or sensationalists.. and I find it ironic that any person would like to talk about 666 over talking about Jesus, and they rarely even talk about the Holy Spirit.
 .
Reality is that many of these still Fools take one verse and try to build a whole lying doctrine out of it.. they preach more about the end times over Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, cause clearly they do not know them yet..
.

(2 Cor 3:15 KJV) But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.

.

In the Bible, the New testament book of Galatians, we see that Apostle Paul expressed a full concern about a group of people who were attempting to pull the Galatian Christians back into legalism and the Law. These people were Judaizers.

.

In Galatians 1:6-10, Paul said: 6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned! 10 Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.

.

If All of the Apostles now l came out from under the Law, who do we think we are to go back under it? as Aposltel Paul said in Galatians:

.

1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort (Galatians 3:1-3)

.

Beware of those eveil people who say, think you have to go back under the Law to find a deeper place in Christ. Let’s not replace the Presence of God with ritual and ceremony. It’s not what He wants for us. Beware.

.

First do notice how quickly the Jewish lovers next do go into a rage and threathen you with judgement cause you do not agree with them and use your right of free speech to do so.

.

Today’s Jews are are too quick to associate with the Promised Land of Joshua’s time. However, as per the conditions of the Bible , the New Testament and even the establishment of the State of Israel by the United Nations in 1948 it now raises many valid questions about that relationship validity.

.

Still the state of Israel is big enough for both the Jews and Muslims to live together in peace too. So do all grow up and smarten up up. (Psa 133:1 KJV) Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity

.

I really get sick every time I hear preachers such as John Hagee and Jerry Falwell demonize the Arab people, while glorifying the Jews. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/07/28/john-hagee%e2%80%99s-israel-heresy/

.

Too many fundamentals, professing Christians now falsely do that the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was prophesied in Scripture while there is no direct support of this in the New Testament Bible even still. Zionism, on the other hand, “is a secularist, largely atheistic ideology” that emerged in the late 19th century. God still does not require the human input to fulfill his own prophecies.

.

Now too many Christian Zionists, extremists do falsely do now believe that in order to fulfill all of the Biblical prophecy, Israel must next conquer most of the Middle East.

.

And anyone watched the mostly self centered, get richer TV evangelists such as a Pat Robertson or John Hagee and their distorted sermons scenarios involving the future “Rapture,” Jesus Christ and also Israel, should also quickly firstly now realize that these false prophets are not only fleecing, scaring their flock to give more money but falsely are into worshipping the false idol of Israel.

.

.John Hagee pays himself over a million dollars a year in TAX FREE money while having several palaces to live in, like the $2.1 million 7,969-acre ranch outside Brackettville, Texas , with five lodges, including a “main lodge” and a gun locker.;

.

After numerous charges against the scribes and Pharisees for their mistreatment of God’s Law, Jesus concludes his condemnation by prophesying the consequences of their sins. The Jews had killed God’s prophets in the past. Though this current generation thought they were above such misdeeds, Jesus stated that they would continue to kill righteous people. They were not above the misdeeds of their forefathers, they were just as guilty. The punishment for killing God’s people would fall upon this very generation. http://www.lavistachurchofchrist.org/LVstudies/GospelAccounts/a47FallOfJerusalem.html

.

Once considered a small marginal doctrine among evangelicals, the false dispensationalist theology of Christian Zionism has greatly escalated, ironically falsely with the help of jess, Messianic Jews, Judaizers and many others too.

.

The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard (Matt 21:33-43) clearly shows that the Christian Church totally now rather succumbs all of the past promises made to Israel. Be careful about accepting anyone’s word about Christian Zionism do first read the Bible, New Testament for yourself and know the truth rather. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/07/29/the-2-promised-returns/

.

” Those who question the legitimacy of Israel’s actions are immediately labelled anti-Semitic by some quarters, effectively undermining the turn of phrase by using it in this context.

.

We are right to question the state of Israel’s actions and I am not anti-Semitic for doing so. I think the religious fundamentalism exhibited by certain Zionist and Orthodox Jewish groups needs to be dealt with in a similar manner to Islamic fundamentalism, I don’t see the distinction between the two, both are equally repulsive. ” http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/even-as-to-the-promised-land/

.

THE JEWS AND ARABS FALSELY DO PREACH THEIR VERSION OF THE LETTER OF THE LAW OVER LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR TOO!

.

Jews will always be far from any right to the the promise land because of all their own unrepentant SINS, ACTS, even the blood shed of many others that they have killed from generations to generation even the shed blood of Jesus. (Mat 23:38 KJV) Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

.

Firstly any one who looks at the subject of prophecy, a real genuine Bible student knows that too many Jews ,who can only use the old testament, and there is almost no new testament substantiation for it, still the Jews, and many others have wrongfully now Distorted Biblical Prophecy Interpretation after the time of Jesus Christ to suit their false Jewish’s ends, a Jewish purpose, for they like Judas they betray Jesus Christ by these acts for Jesus next made it clear the second Jewish Kingdom of God was not in this world.. (John 18:36 KJV) 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.

.

And the false Jewish supporters can solely refer to the Old Testament verses now such as Jeremiah Chapter 31, Joel 3:2, Amos 9:15 and Psalm 83: for they undeniably have no New Testament substantiations, support for Israel’s return or possession now of the past promised land.

.

And as we all do know the main temple in Jerusalem was fully destroyed to the ground in 70 AD by the Romans, as well as all of the temple records there in, so no one any longer can validate his Jewish ancestry or birth rights even.

.

The chief identifying mark of the false Judiazers is their full or partial observance of sthe Jewish laws such as the celebration of festivals and the Sabbath, studying heavily the Jewish Scriptures, and keeping certain Jewish feasts. Note these people aresome of the most divisive, legalistic, demonic led. Thesre are here also the so called believers in Yeshua who rant and rave about the church being pagan, and Pentecostals being demonic, and the Christians are not keeping the Sabbath and not following the Torah. They don’t want to be called Christians, they don’t believe in our Jesus . Real Christian do not keep the sabbath any more and they do not follow the Torah

.

The Judiazers are the ones still headed to hell, for they do not believe that Christ alone saves, but they believe that they do like Cain, do need to play a role in their own salvation. Some they are Like the Christian Jews in the Book of Hebrews who received the truth but falsely continued to make sacrifices, trusting in their own sacrifices for their personal salvation, the judiazers basically do still count Christ’s blood as an “unholy thing,” – for they do not believe is is mighty enough to save them itself. Judaizers they are slap to the face to Christ our Lord and Saviour.We are initially saved through the finished work of Jesus Christ and not by our own works, but through God’s GRACE but we are kept as Christians by our own free will!

.

We are not talking about Jewish people who sccept Jesus Christ also as their lord and Savior and become true Christians.

.

There are generally are 4 false groups among the false Judaizers:

1 Jewish Christians 2 Gentile Judaizing Christians 3 Confused God-fearers 4 Messianic Judaizers

-The Jewish Christians were Jews who believed in Jesus, yet continued to observe Jewish law.

-The Judaizing Christians group consisted of Gentile Christians who have faalsely adopted certain aspects of Jewish law; some of them had observed certain Jewish practices prior to their conversion (to Christianity) because of their false attraction to these customs.

– Others had not kept any Jewish rites before becoming Christian

*** The reason for their errors is clear, they have not yet fully turbed to the Lord Jesus Christ

(2 Cor 3:16 KJV) Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.

(Heb 10:20 KJV) By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

Rev 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Rev 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

.

For all of the Jewish believers in the shed blood of the Messiah Jesus Christ, a normative Judaism is nothing short of spiritual adultery. In Romans we are told that we were made to die to the Law in order to be joined to (married to) the Messiah Jesus Christ. “Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, that we might bear fruit for God.” Romans 7:4 And the context is that of a woman who is married, i.e. she cannot (legitimately) be joined to two different husbands, except that one be dead. We are NOT our own savior, so let’s allow Jesus to be our sole Savior and let’s leave the false religions, even Judaism to the world. “Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses. “Take heed therefore, so that the thing spoken of in the Prophets may not come upon you… ‘Behold, you scoffers, and marvel, and perish; For I am accomplishing a work in your days, A work which you will never believe, though someone should describe it to you.’” Acts 13:38, 41

.

“For many walk of whom I often told you and now tell you even weeping that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction whose god is their appetite and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things.” Philippians 3:18,19

.

It is a really sad fact, in spite of the fact they may use some of the same words other real Christians do now, that too many professing Christians who claim they love God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, in reality they are still not filled with the Holy Spirit even cause they have rejected the fullness of the Holy Spirit, and his gifts being applicable today, they now falsely have limited the Gospel as being Jesus the Savior only and they wrongfully do not teach the full Gospel of Jesus the Christ now as well…. and they falsely emphasize the usage of Greek and the teaching of men, such as Darby, Scofield, over the Holy Spirit teaching us directly.. and those amongst them who do this they all basically do not have the Holy Spirit, are actually deceived, are now none of His.. They realy are still unsaved thus.

.

“YOU CANNOT PRAISE HIM IN FALSE DOCTRINE ..YOU COMMIT FORNICATION WHEN YOU ARE IN FALSE DOCTRINE …..WHEN YOU DO NOT HAVE THE HOLY GHOST YOU CANNOT WORSHIP HIM…..HE SAID THIS IN ACTS BEFORE HE LEFT UP Mat 16:12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. THESE ARE THE ONES THAT BRING THE DEMONIC DOCTRINE INTO THE CHURCH …SAYING YAHWAH KEEPING THE PASSOVER THE SABBATH”

.

Now the Law of Moses was great while it lasted. But it had a failing; it couldn’t make any of us free from all things. It is ONLY through Jesus Himself the Person, the God/man Christ Jesus and His work on the cross that we can be set free. Observing the Law itself now cannot do it for us. “For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them.’ ” Galatians 3:10 “And I said to their children in the wilderness, ‘Do not walk in the statutes of your fathers, or keep their ordinances, or defile yourselves with their idols.” (Ezekiel 20:18) And again in verse 25, “And I gave them statutes that were not good and ordinances by which they could not live.”

.

There are major unacceptable New testament, Biblical. theological differences between Messianic Jews and the true Christians, the true believers.. Forwe need to recognize that God doesn’t favor one culture above another. “Jewish culture” is not only foreign to most Jews, it is also foreign to God. in Reality Judaism (and all cultural religions for that matter) looks to be like serving God, but they are not for they do robs us of the opportunity to bond with God, to speak to Him, to know Him, to love Him, to serve on God’s own terms. The teaching of the Pharisees (Judaism) itself is poisonous for all believers. Either we have Jesus and His life, or we have something else and we die. “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8 http://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2009/11/08/in-the-last-days-perilous-times-shall-come/

.

Messianic Jews they have not made the necessary step to cross over to worship Jesus as their Lord amd Savior directly yet as well ,even because they have not taken up their cross, forsaken all to follow after Jesus as well, for being a Christian believer in Israel isn’t easy for you always feel that the rest of Jewish society isn’t accepting you. It should be understood by all that all Jews still need to be saved from their sins, Hell itself by accepting Jesus Christ as their Personal lord, Savior, and any of their Jewish cultural roots will not save them.

.

NOW WE VALID CHRISTIANS DO BASE THE VALID DOCTRINES ON THE NEW TESTAMENT SUBSTANTIATION BY JESUS OR THE APOSTLES, NOT JUST ON THE OLD TESTAMENT REFERENCES.. http://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/about-those-jews-persons-who-still-falsely-refuse-to-acknowledge-openly-jesus-christ-as-their-lord-and-savior/

.

BY THE WAY IF YOU CHECK OUT THE GOSPEL YOU WILL SEE THAT JESUS DROVE OUT THE MONEY CHANGERS TWICE AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF HIS MINISTRY WHICH HAS GREAT SIGNIFICANCE..

.

“Did Jesus pray for the people He upended and scourged as He walked through the temple? No. How come Jesus didn’t pray for and bless His enemies?

. HE DIDN’T HE CURSED THEM WITH WOE TO YOU. AND AS A RESULT WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS ENEMIES?

.

Jesus as the Chief Apostle and Prophet, judged the false ones of His day and He publicly did not say nice things about them but told them that their end would be worse than their beginning. He told them they were hypocrites, blind guides, serpents, brood of vipers, and lawless ones, who would not escape the condemnation of hell and there would be a day of judgment for them. He told them,”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. (Matthew 23:34) And because God was with Him, God would honor His words and they would not fall to the ground. The Jewish religious and political leaders of Jesus day along with their followers would not escape the condemnation of hell in the speedy ensuring judgments that followed in 70 AD for whatsoever a man sows so shall He reap! Flavius Josephus in writing about “The Siege of Jerusalem, AD 70” testified: Throughout the city people were dying of hunger in large numbers, and enduring unspeakable sufferings. In every house the merest hint of food sparked violence, and close relatives fell to blows, snatching from one another the pitiful supports of life. No respect was paid even to the dying; the ruffians [anti-Roman zealots] searched them, in case they were concealing food somewhere in their clothes, or just pretending to be near death. Gaping with hunger, like mad dogs, lawless gangs went staggering and reeling through the streets, battering upon the doors like drunkards, and so bewildered that they broke into the same house two or three times in an hour. Need drove the starving to gnaw at anything. Refuse which even animals would reject was collected and turned into food. In the end they were eating belts and shoes, and the leather stripped off their shields. Tufts of withered grass were devoured, and sold in little bundles for four drachmas.

.

There is a real price to be paid for rejecting truth and doing injustice, even in the current time of life, as the people of Jerusalem who murdered Jesus could testify. By 66 AD Life in Jerusalem had become a nightmare, it was so full of violence and misery. Famine and food shortages become an everyday problem.

.   Then in 70 AD Titus marched against the city with four legions of the Roman army. They laid siege to Jerusalem and using their battering rams they breached the walls of the city. Fleeing citizens of Jerusalem were caught by the Romans and were tortured and crucified. Later the whole city was destroyed and the people of Jerusalem paid the price for ignoring Jesus warning about what would happen to them. These kinds of things do happen even in the current time of life!

.

TITUS now promised that the Temple should be spared if the defenders would come forth and fight in any other place, but John and the Zealots refused to surrender it. For several days the outer cloisters and outer court were attacked with rams, but the immense and compact stones resisted the blows. As many soldiers were slain in seeking to storm the cloisters, Titus ordered the gates to be set on fire. Through that night and the next day the flames raged through the cloisters. Then, in order to save the Temple itself, he ordered the fire to be quenched. On the tenth of August, the same day of the year on which Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Temple built by Solomon, the cry was heard that the Temple was on fire. The Jews, with cries of grief and rage, grasped their swords and rushed to take revenge on their enemies or perish in the ruins. The slaughter was continued while the fire raged. Soon no part was left but a small portion of the outer cloisters, where 6,000 people had taken refuge, led by a false prophet who had there promised that God would deliver His people in His Temple. The soldiers set the building on fire and all perished. Titus next spent eighteen days in preparations for the attack on the upper city, which was then speedily captured. And now the Romans were not disposed to display any mercy, night alone putting an end to the carnage. During the whole of this siege of Jerusalem, 1,100,000 were slain, and the prisoners numbered 97,000. ” http://www.publicbookshelf.com/public_html/Outline_of_Great_Books_Volume_I/templejer_cg.html

I too am a Gentile grafted into the branches of the fig tree that was symbol of the Jewish People.. the Jews were once God’s chosen people…

.

But you do not put old wine into new basket Jesus said.. but you put the new wine into containers too.. so the Old has been superseded by the New Testament.

.

Only those who believe in the Son of man…there can be Good Arabs, good Americans…etc… No one goes to the Father except through me…Jesus said. He is the sole and ultimate Sacrifice.. the only way to God for everyone..

.

but there is no promised return of Israel by Jesus 

.

Christian Zionists fail to recognize how Jesus universalizes the land promise made in Psalm 37. “But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace.”

.

NOTE THIS UNDENIABLE FACT THAT there is no New Testament verse substantiating thaw present Jewish  return to the land of Israel. and if you do believe otherwise it rather shows how little you know of Jesus and the whole Bible too.. go and study it rightfully too..

.

The true Biblical scholar can note all of the major, essential Christian doctrines have been repeated by Jesus or the apostles in the New Testament.  Zionism, the reestablishment of the nation of Israel, with Jerusalem as it’s capital is not one of them. When Christianity became a formal, legal religion in the fourth century, Churches throughout the world agreed on which books should form the New Testament, and they agreed on several basic statements of faith. One of the doctrinal lists created was the Apostles’ Creed, the Creed was an accurate summary of what the apostles taught. It too does not mention Zionism. Nor does the Nicene creed. Nor many others. So the present support of Zionism by many Christians is not a true, valid Christian teaching. Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’ (Mt. 4:4,7,10 ) not your own gospel now too..    .

Christian Zionists falsely now contrary to the New Testament do support the rebuilding of the nation of Israel, Jerusalem as the center of Worship, and the rebuilding of the Temple. Since the Christian Zionism error is because they follow a literal and futurist reading of the Old Testament, which plus their false refusal to acknowledge how Jesus and the Apostles reinterpreted the Old Testament, with a false assumption that Old and New Testament run at times parallel into the future, the former speaking of Israel and the latter of the Church. This is at variance with the way the New Testament interprets, fulfills, annuls and completes the Old. For example, “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.” (Acts 10:34-35). If God does not show favoritism, the Jews cannot an longer presume to enjoy a favored or exclusive status. By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear. (Hebrews 8:13). The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming– not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship (Hebrews 10:1) It is fundamental that all persons, Zionist and Christians, do read the Scriptures solely with Christian eyes, and that they interpret the Old Covenant in the light of the New Covenant, not the other way round. Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. (Colossians. 2:16-17) This is the most basic hermeneutical error which Christian Zionists consistently repeat is illustrated in the way Christian Zionists continue to regard the Jews as God’s ‘chosen people’ and clearly which is no longer true.

.

The Jews Remain God’s ‘Chosen People’ was falsely first propounded by the Plymouth Brethren dispensationalist preacher Darby, his implicit assumption is that the Jews continue to enjoy a special covenant relationship with God apart from through Jesus Christ. This contradicts John the Baptist and Jesus own clear and unambiguous statements to the contrary. “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, `We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” (Luke 3:8-9) “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do the things Abraham did… You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire.” (John 8:39, 44) “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) ‘Anyone who does not listen to him (Christ) will be completely cut off from among his people.’ (Acts 3:23)

.

Jesus and the apostles repudiated the notion that the Jews continued to enjoy a special status or relationship apart from faith in Jesus as their Messiah. And now ‘chosenness’ is the gift of God’s grace in Jesus Christ to all who trust in Him, irrespective of their racial origins. In the New Testament and the term is never used exclusively of the Jewish people, apart from as members of the Church. Jesus Christ is the ‘chosen’ one. Indeed in the New Testament the term is always used to refer to the Church, the Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:11).Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12) But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10) It is therefore no longer appropriate to designate the Jews as God’s ‘chosen people’. The term has been redefined to describe all those who trust in Jesus Christ.

.

(Song 2:16 KJV) My beloved ( JESUS) is mine, and I am his:

(Song 2:8 KJV) The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.

2 Chr 15:2 The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

.

The People with an empty, imposturous Christian spiritual life generally still turn to a simplified Old Testament version gospel, practice and not a real New Testament based Gospel for they even turn to idolatry to wrongfully try to compensate for their definite void, guilt feelings, their failure to reach, acquire a deeper Holy Sprit led, filled, spiritual life in Christ…. They practice idolatry instead and now falsely promote, do encourage the worship of men, prophecy, creeds, denominations, history, doctrines, things, places, books, videos, rather most anyhting over solely worshipping now God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus. The devil leads them into this. Truly Jesus Christ does not talk to ythem and they never were fully baptized with the holy spirit as many of us here were..

Luk 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

MK 4:22 “For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.

Cor 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: :2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. :4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

HEAVEN IS OUR HOME AND NOT THE WORLD

 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; My opinion- (If you love Him and doing what He expects of us you don’t half to worry,because when you turn the word hate to love this verse is not mean for you)

Deuteronomy 5:8-9 (King James Version) 8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate him.

Some   Christians today interpret Romans 11:26 as applying to the end of the seven-year tribulation when Jesus appears in the clouds at His Second Coming. In other words, they don’t apply the verse to all Jews throughout history, but only to “all Jews” who are alive at the end. Supposedly, at the end of the tribulation, all remaining Jews in Israel will look up, see Christ coming in the clouds, realize He is the true Messiah, believe in Him, and thus “All Israel will be saved.”This is a false teaching, Rather the immediate context of Romans 11:26 is vs. 25. When “the fullness of the Gentiles has come in,” then “all Israel will be saved.” Or, to be exact, “And so all Israel will be saved.” In other words, the coming in of the fullness or total number of the Gentiles results in “all Israel” …being saved. Paul’s idea seems to be that when all Gentiles (totally, throughout history) have come in, that is, have been grafted into the Vine, they, uniting with all Jews who have become believers, will form the total number of the saved.The Israel of God is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who believe in Jesus Christ (Gal. 3:29). The “all Israel that is saved” does not apply to all Jews throughout history, nor can it apply to a select favored group who become instant believers when Jesus Christ comes crashing down through the sky. By that time, it is too late to believe.  https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/07/24/jews-and-their-own-need-of-salvation-by-jesus-christ-still-too/
Now are we real Christians or still just a Jew? 
          Even the  false group Christians united for Israel sponsored by many Jews too,  is unknown to the majority of true, real Christians and is rightfully  also still not supported by them too.  True Christians are very vulnerable, easily deceived here because of their God-given love for all people and falsely now love Israel and Jerusalem, the City God had once chosen as his own. God will  not restore the nation of  Isra…el, and  God will not restore the old Judaic Religious System, because Christ came to fulfill what that system could never do. The Laws, ordinances, feasts and festivals all pointed to Jesus Christ, but they were only a shadow of the true. The Lamb of God who even was slain from the foundation of the world brought to man in completion what was only a promise to those who lived under the Old Covenant. Those who really do know Christ in His fullness will not and cannot hold onto or return to the old religious system under the Law. For when they receive Christ they are set free from the law of sin and death, which is what the OT law was. Jesus Christ is NOT a religious system and he denounced the Religious Jews who followed the Law with studious and practiced devotion, because he knew it could not save them. Christ Jesus is unique and His ministry was unique in that he showed us the only way to the Father. Now Judaism is undeniably all  dead to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit
Today’s Jews, Messianic ones now included all whose central teachings depart radically from the BASIC, TRUE Christians, New testament. Even  the  premise of the  FALSE  Hebrew Roots movement is the belief that the Church has veered far from the true teachings and Hebrew concepts of the Bible, it is CLEARLY AGAIN  the Jewish haters of Jesus trying to take you to hell with them AS THEY FALSELY TRY TO CONTINUE THE Mosaic Covenant, but JUDAISM  IS NOW DEAD TO GOD, JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, AS IT DIED ON THE CROSS WITH JESUS CHRIST. JUDAISM IS NOW ONLY A GHOST,  THE JUDAISM  GROUP IS A CULT –  Religious groups/systems which promote or add teachings which are contrary to the Word of God. “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Gal. 1:8 This includes any adding to the Word of God. Rev. 22:18  This ALL IS ANOTHER FALSE,  subtle attack on the reliability of the text of our Bible. If the Greek text is MADE unreliable and has been corrupted, as is FALSELY charged by some, the Church no longer has the  standard of truth.  Again this is just another stream of false teachings that we need to keep our eyes and ears open for, it leads people into error and a false legalistic type religion.   Many Jews who have supposedly  accepted Christ as Messiah, are falsely attempting as the once partially  Jewish Christians in the early church, to mesh Grace with Judaism under the Old Covenant, making all inclusive with one another the Works of the Law, as well as the ordinances, such as the Sabbath and other holy days and combining them with
Again Judaism today this is just another stream of false teachings that we need to keep our eyes and ears open for, it leads people into error and a false legalistic type religion.
.
Read the book of Galatians where Paul addresses this heresy and warns the early church that if they follow this teaching, they have fallen from grace and are going to hell.
.
Galatians 3:28,29 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.
.
Romans 2:17-21 But if you bear the name “Jew” and rely upon the Law and boast in God, and know His will and approve the things that are essential, being instructed out of the Law, and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of the immature, having in the Law the embodiment of knowledge and of the truth, you, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself?
.
1 Timothy 1:3, 6-10 As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines…For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion, wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions. But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching
.
2 Peter 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves…….
.
CAN ANYONE REALLY IMAGINE JESUS CHRIST BEING A HYPOCRITE, LYING, STEALING, CHEATING, COMMITTING ADULTERY, GETTING DRUNK, TAKING POT, DRUGS.. NEVER! YET MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOADS OF SIN TO HIDE LIE WHEN THEY SAY YOU CANNOT JUDGE THEM OR OTHERS, THERE IS NO ONE WHO STILL CANNOT BE JUDGED FOR WHAT THEY DO OR SAY NOW..
Now we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be heard now as well.. I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well, and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. Clearly some bad people falsely still DO DISALLOW THIS RIGHT… the realy bad persons especially as even I know this for sure as they falsely refuse the whole to be shared even as as to who they are firstly. They respond with a personal attack, inquisition, censorship, lies, slanders, diversions, distortions, instead of facing, dealing with the facts, truths being presented. Confirming to many what they still are really like, immoral, abusive bullies   https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/now-about-the-abusers-bullies-thugs-proud-oppressors-war-mongers/”>https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/now-about-the-abusers-bullies-thugs-proud-oppressors-war-mongers/

“False brethren – While the flesh wants to bring us into bondage to sin, false brethren want to bring us into bondage into legalism, according to Paul (Galatians 2:1-5). They know nothing of the liberty that we have in Christ Jesus. They know nothing of grace and are angry with it. False brethren look for ways to exclude others from the kingdom of God, based on race, social standing, denominational affiliation, education, or being followers of a particular man. They create a sense of second class citizenship among the people of God. False brethren don’t care if you are following Jesus or not as not as you are following their own variant of truth, then you will be accepted by them.”   http://dailymedit.wordpress.com/2013/09/05/cutting-off-foreign-influences/

Thinking about God reduces distress,

 
One of the funny things I find about real  life for me is that it is too often  still is periods of either feast or famine, of one having an abundance or one faces poverty, having an absolute minimum essentials.. one has too much work or not enough.. one has too little time or too much free time, or one can’t find the time to be alone, to rest, versus one has  too much solitude and the same thing applies to one’s friends..  one has loads of superficial friends, or a bare minimum of good, trustworthy friends.
.
(Eccl 5:19 KJV)  Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
(Eccl 6:2 KJV)  A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
(Eccl 7:14 KJV)  In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
(Eccl 7:15 KJV)  All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.
(Eccl 7:16 KJV)  Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
(Eccl 7:17 KJV)  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
(Eccl 7:18 KJV)  It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not thine hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all.
(Eccl 7:19 KJV)  Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the city.
(Amos 3:10 KJV)  For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces. 11   Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled.

 Thinking about God reduces distress, study finds

If you want to reduce your stress level and feel less upset, perhaps you should think about God. Investigators at the University of Toronto Scarborough found that when people think about God and religion, their brains respond in ways that allows them to react with less distress.

Stress, Religion and God

The physiological and psychological impacts of stress are well known and range from depression and anxiety disorders to gastrointestinal problems, high blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, hair loss, obesity, and diabetes, among others. Findings effective ways to help people cope with or manage stress, therefore, is an important goal.

Given that 85 percent of people in the world have some type of religious belief system, Michael Inzlicht, assistant psychology professor, and Alexa Tullet of the University of Toronto Scarborough decided to uncover what functions such beliefs might serve.

(1 John 1:10 KJV) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

YOU DO REALIZE THAT DEPRESSION IS A BIG PERSONAL PROBLEM IN MANY PEOPLE’S LIFE EVEN CAUSE THEY DO NOT FACE THE ROOT, OTHER CAUSES OF IT BUT THEY INSTEAD TOO OFTEN RATHER TRY TO MASK IT WITH DRUGS, MEDICATIONS, BOOZE, ACTIVITIES..
.
Sadly very few persons still do care about taking positive steps to insure a healthy body, or dealing with depression, those who do tend to do the absolute minimum.. most people do not know what to do or do not care to do anything until it is almost too late. Few people seriously read about these topics now too..

and I saw a new heaven and a new earth

 

(Rev 20:10 KJV)  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

11  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

In the “Life of William Tennent,” that zealous, devoted minister, and friend and fellow-laborer of Whitefield, the author of his memoirs gives an account of Tennent being three days in a trance. He became prostrated with a fever, and by degrees sunk under it, until, to appearances, he died. In laying him out, one felt a slight tremor under the left arm, though the body was cold and stiff. The time for the funeral arrived, and the people were assembled. But a physician, Tennent’s friend, plead that the funeral might be delayed.

Tennent’s brother remarked: “What! A man not dead who is cold and stiff as a stake?” The doctor, however, prevailed; another day was appointed for the funeral. During the interval, various efforts were made to discover signs of life, but none appeared save the slight tremor. For three days and nights his friend, the physician, never left him. Again the people met to bury him, but could not even then obtain the physician’s consent. For one hour more he pled; when that was gone, he craved half an hour more. That being expired, he implored a stay of fifteen minutes, at the expiration of which Tennent opened his eyes.

The following brief account is given in Mr. Tennent’s own language, and was related to a brother minister: “As to dying, I found my fever increase, and I became weaker and weaker, until all at once, I found myself in heaven, as I thought. I saw no shape as to the Deity, but glory all unutterable. I can say as Paul did, I heard and saw things unutterable. I saw a great multitude before His glory, apparently in the height of bliss, singing most melodiously. I was transported with my of situation, viewing all my troubles ended, and my rest and glory begun, and was about to join the great and happy multitude, when one came to me looked me full in the face, laid his hand upon my shoulder, and said: “You must go back.”

“These words went through me; nothing could have shocked me more. I cried out: “Lord, must I go back?” With this shock, I opened my eyes in this world, I fainted, then came to, and fainted again several times, as one probably would naturally have done in so weak a situation.

For three years the sense of the Divine things continued so great, and everything else appeared so completely vain, when compared to heaven, that could I have had the world for stooping down for it, I believe I should not have thought of doing it.”

To the writer of his memoirs, Mr. Tennent, concerning this experience, once said: “I found myself, in an instant, in another state of existence, under the direction of a superior being, who offered me to follow him. I was accordingly wafted along, I know not how, till I beheld, at a distance, an ineffable glory, the impression of which on my mind, it is impossible to communicate to mortal man.

Such was the effect on my mind of what I had seen and heard, that if it be possible for a human being to live entirely above the world, and the things of it, for some time afterward I was that person. The ravishing sounds of the songs and hallelujahs that I heard, and the very words that were uttered, were not out of my ears, when awake, for at least three years. All the kingdoms of the earth were in my sight as nothing and vanity. So great were my ideas of heavenly glory, that nothing which did not in some measure relate to it, could command my serious attention.

Mr. Tennent lived a number of years after this event, and died in the triumphs of a living faith, March 8, 1777, aged 71 years; his mortal remains being interred at his chapel, in Freehold, N. J. He was an able, faithful preacher; and the Divine presence with him was frequently manifested in his public and private ministrations. In personal appearance, he was tall, erect, and of spare visage, with bright, piercing eyes, and grave, solemn countenance.

The following was related and vouched for by the late Robert Young, the missionary. We quote his account of the trance as given in a tract entitled, “A Vision of Hell,” issued by the Evangelical Publishing Company, Chicago:

While residing in a British colony as a Christian missionary, I was called one evening to visit Miss D—-, who was said to be dying. Mrs. Young, by whom she was met weekly for religious instruction, feeling a deep interest in her spiritual welfare, accompanied me to her residence. We found her in the chamber of a neat little cottage, exceedingly ill, but confiding in the merits of Jesus; and after spending some time with her in conversation and prayer, we commended her to God, and took our departure, without the least hope of seeing her again in this life. Soon after we left she seemed to die; but as the usual signs of death, which so rapidly develop themselves in that country, did not appear, her friends anxiously waited to see the end.

She was watched with great interest, both night and day; and after having been in this state for nearly a week, opened her eyes and said: “Mr. C—- is dead.” Her attendants, thinking that she was under the influence of delirium, replied that she was mistaken, as he was not only alive but well. “Oh, no!” said she, “he is dead; for a short time ago, as I passed the gates of hell, I saw him descend into the pit, and the blue flame cover him. Mr. B—- is also dead, for he arrived at heaven just as I was leaving that happy place, and I saw its beautiful gates thrown wide open to receive him, and beard the host of heaven shout: “Welcome, weary pilgrim!”

Mr. C—- was a neighbor, but a very wicked person, and Mr. B—-, who lived at no great distance, many years had been a member of the Church of God. The parties who heard Miss  D—-’s startling and confident statements immediately sent to make inquiries about the two individuals alluded to, and found, to their utter astonishment, that the former had dropped down dead about half an hour before, whilst in the act of tying his shoe; and that about the same time the latter had suddenly passed into the eternal world. For the truth of these facts I do solemnly vouch. She then went on to tell them where she had been, and what she had seen and heard.

VISIT TO HEAVEN.

After being sufficiently recovering to leave the house, she paid us a visit, and Mrs. Young, as well as myself, heard from her own lips the following account of what she had passed through. She informed us that at the time she was supposed to die, a celestial being conducted her into the invisible world, and mysteriously unveiled to her the realities of eternity. He took her first to heaven, but she was told that, as she yet belonged to time, she could not be permitted to enter into that glorious place, but only to behold it; which she represented as infinitely exceeding in beauty and splendor the most elevated conceptions of mortals, and whose glories no language could describe.

She told us that she beheld the Savior upon a throne of light and glory, surrounded by the four-and-twenty elders, and a great multitude which no man could number; among whom she recognized patriarchs, prophets, apostles, martyrs, and all the missionaries who had died in that colony, besides many others whom she mentioned; and although those parties were not named by the angel that attended her, yet she said that seeing them was to know them.

She described these celestial spirits as being variously employed; and, although she felt herself inadequate to convey any definite idea of the nature of that employment, yet it appeared to be adapted to their respective mental tastes and spiritual attainments. She also informed us that she heard sweet and most enrapturing music, such as she had never heard before, and made several attempts to give us some idea of its melodious character, but found her notes too earthly for that purpose.

While thus favored, the missionaries already referred to, and other happy spirits, as they glided past her, sweetly smiled, and said they knew whence she came, and, if faithful to the grace of God, she would, in a-short time, be admitted into their delightful society. All the orders of heaven were in perfect and blessed harmony, and appeared to be directed in all their movements by mysterious influence, proceeding from the throne of God.

She was next conducted to a place whence she had

A VIEW OF HELL.

 

 

 “This she described in the most terrific language, and declared that the horrid shrieks of lost spirits still seemed to sound in her ears. As she approached the burning pit, a tremendous effort was made to draw her into it; but she felt herself safe under the protection of her guardian angel. She recognized many in the place of torment whom she had known on earth, and even some who had been thought to be Christians.

 

 “There were princes and peasants, learned and un-learned, writhing together in one unquenchable fire, where all earthly distinctions and titles were forever at an end. Among them she beheld a Miss W—-, who had occupied a prominent station in society, but had died during the illness of this young woman. She said that when Miss W saw her approach, her shrieks were appalling, beyond the power of language to describe, and that she made a desperate but unsuccessful effort to escape. 

 “The punishment of lost souls she represented as symbolizing the respective sins which had occasioned their condemnation. Miss W—-, for instance, was condemned for the love of money, which I had every reason to believe was her besetting sin; and she seemed robed in a garment of gold, all on fire. Mr. O—-, whom she saw, was lost through intemperance; and he appeared to be punished by devils administering to him some boiling liquid.

 

 “She said there was no sympathy among these unhappy spirits, but that unmixed hatred, in all its frightful forms, prevailed in every part of the fiery regions. She beheld parents and children, husbands and wives, and those who had been companions in sin, exhibiting every mark of deep hatred to each other’s society; and heard them in fiendish accents upbraiding and bitterly cursing each other. She saw nothing in hell but misery and despair, and heard nothing there but the most discordant sounds, accompanied with weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth.

 

 “While she gazed upon this revolting scene, many souls arrived from earth, and were greedily seized by innumerable devils of monstrous shape, amid horrid shouts of hellish triumph, and tortured according to their crimes.” 

 ************* 

 John Wesley, in his Journal of August, 1746, vol. 1, pages 374-375-376, concerning one he styles “S.T.,” says:

 “About six in the morning she was rising, and inwardly praying to God; when on a sudden, she was seized with a violent trembling. Quickly after she lost her speech in a few minutes her hearing; then her sight, and, at the same time, all sense and motion.

 “Her mother immediately sent for Mrs. Designe, to whom she then went to school. At the same time her father sent for Mr. Smith, apothecary, who lived near. At first he proposed bleeding her immediately, and applying a large blister; but upon examining her further, he said ‘It signifies nothing, for the child is dead.’ About twelve o’clock she began to stir; then opened her eyes, and gave the following account

 “As soon as I lost my senses, I was in a dismal place, full of briers, and pits, and ditches; stumbling up and down, and not knowing where to turn, or which way to get either forward or backward; and it was almost quite dark, there being but a little faint twilight, so that I could scarce see before me. I was crying, ready to break my heart; and a man came to me, and said: ‘Child, where are you going?’ I said: ‘I could not tell.’ He said: ‘ What do you want?’ I answered: ‘I want Christ to be my refuge.’ He said: ‘You are the child for whom I am sent; you are to go with me.’ I saw it grew lighter as he spoke. I observed his clothes; they reached down to his feet, and were shining and white as snow.

 

  He brought me through a narrow lane, into a vast, broad road, and told me: ‘This leads to hell; but be not afraid; you are not to stay there.’ At the end of that road a man stood, clothed like the other, in white, shining clothes. Turning to the left hand, we went down a very high, steep hill. I could scarce bear the stench and smoke of brimstone. I saw a vast many people that seemed to be chained down, crying and gnashing their teeth. The man told me, the sins they delighted in once they are tormented with now. I saw a vast number who stood up, cursing and blaspheming God, and spitting at each other; and many were making balls of fire, and throwing them at one another. I saw many others, who had cups of fire, out of which they were drinking down flames; and others, who held cards of fire in their hands, and seemed to be playing with them.

We stayed here, I thought, about half an hour. Then my guide said: ‘Come; I will now show you a glorious place.’ I saw the gate of heaven, which stood wide open; but it was so bright I could not look at it long. We went straight in, and walked through a large place, where I saw saints and angels; and another large place, where were abundance more. They were all of one height and stature; and when one prayed, they all prayed; when one sung, they all sung. And they all sung alike, with a smooth, even voice, not one higher or lower than another.

We went through this into a third place. There I saw God, sitting upon His throne. It was a throne of light, brighter than the sun. I could not fix my eyes upon it. I saw three, but all as one. Our Savior had a pen in His hand. A great book lay at His right side; another at His left; and a third partly behind Him. In the first He set down the prayers and good works of His people; in the second He set down all the curses, and all the evil works of the wicked. I saw that He discerns the whole earth at a glance.

Then our Lord took the first book in His hand, and went and said: ‘Father, behold the prayers and the works of my people.’ And he held up His hands and prayed, and interceded to His Father for us. I never heard any voice like that; but I cannot tell how to explain it. And His Father said: ‘Son, I forgive Thy people; not for their sake, but Thine.’ Then our Lord wrote it down in the third book, and returned to His throne, rejoicing with the hosts of heaven.

It seemed to me as if I stayed here several months but I never slept all the while. And there was no night; and I saw no sky or sun, but clear light everywhere. Then we went back to a large door, which my guide opened; and we walked into pleasant gardens, by brooks and fountains. As we walked, I said: ‘I did not see my brother here’ (who died sometime before). He said: ‘Child, thou canst not know thy brother yet. Thy spirit is to return to the earth. Thou must watch and pray. Thou shalt come again hither, and be joined to these, and know everyone as before.’ I said: ‘When is that to be?’ He said ‘I know not, nor any angel in heaven; but God alone.’

 

  While we were walking, he said: ‘Sing.’ I said ‘What shall I sing?’ And he said: ‘Sing praises unto the King of the place.’ I sung several verses. Then he said: ‘I must go.’ I would have fain gone with him; but he said ‘Your time is not yet; you have more work to do on earth.’ Immediately he was gone; and I came to myself, and began to speak.

She received remission of sins when she was nine years old, and was very watchful from that time. Since this trance she has continued in faith and love.”

God’s promises to his own

 
(Isa 35:1 KJV)  The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2  It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
3  Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4  Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.
5  Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6  Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7  And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
8  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9  No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
10  And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
