Keep your eyes on Jesus Christ not the Jewish Antichrist Yeshua . The Jewish Yesuha is another Jesus and not the same as the Christian Jesus Christ
The Jewish Messiah’s given name at Birth also was Jesus Christ, a Greek name and not a Hebrew name.
Yeshua is a Messianic Jewish invention where the Jews are falsely waiting for Yeshua to come to earth to re establish the kingdom of Israel and to rebuild the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.. It will never happen, these are false hopes for Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God for all Christians.
Most Jews have rejected their own Jewish Messiah, Jesus Christ, He came to his own and they did not receive him. They did not receive him because he was not going to re establish the nation of Israel and a major world power so they are now waiting for an imposter Yeshua, the antichrist will will do that for them .Are you looking forward to a war next where millions of Jews may wind up dead? https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2014/01/01/are-you-looking-foward-to-a-war-next-where-millions-of-jews-may-wind-up-dead/
1 John 2
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.
1 John 4
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
1 John 3
1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
There basically is nothing good in man or in the world still .
I cannot understand how anyone, an English speaking person, holy spirit filled can now even use a Hebrew name for God even Yahwah, Yeshua, in an English Christian church instead of using God’ s revealed, real name which is Jesus Christ, the sole name above all other name.. this is very ungodly of them and there is no place in the Bible that says Jesus is to be called by any other name; YAHWAH is JESUS ! SO SAY SO TOO!
JESUS ONLY Phillipians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
2 Thessalonians 3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
“Do not be deceived” Three times during the Olivet Discourse (Mat 24), Jesus He had warned His Disciples.
He did not command them to do anything else, but not to be deceived in the Last Days. And, immediately after that He said . . Matthew 24:13 (13) “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
Matthew 24:13 “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
and anyone with any real spiritual discernment knows that the Hebrew name movement is false.. THEY UNDENIABLY ARE also spreading gross error, and preaching a “different gospel.” They do misinterpret scripture deliberately, or apply scripture in a way that distorts its real Christian meaning.
And one of their blatant misapplications pertains to the vision the Apostle Peter received from God in Acts 10 and 11.
As we know, Peter’s vision was of many animals that had been classified as “unclean” for the Jews to eat under the ceremonial laws, and, in the vision, God specifically told Peter to kill and eat. Peter protested, explaining that he had never eaten anything that the law called unclean, but God told him not to call unclean that which He had made clean. In fact, because of Peter’s disbelief, God showed him the vision three times!
Of course, Peter later recounted the vision for others and stated that it meant that, even though he was a Jew, he was no longer to regard Gentiles as “off limits,” which is what the ceremonial laws had previously forced him to do. Those in the HRM perform some incredible mental gymnastics with this one by contending that, after Peter realized the full meaning of the vision, he then somehow understood that God was only kidding about His command to “kill and eat.” They state that the vision was only used as a metaphor, and that Peter knew that God didn’t mean for him to do what he was told to do. The most amazing aspect of their teaching on this is that there are people who actually believe their nonsense. The message of the vision was clear to Peter—that the laws that had kept Jews and Gentiles separate had been removed. If there were no longer any legal prohibition against Jews mingling with Gentiles, then the laws forcing their separation could no longer be applied. The ceremonial laws, or that which determined clean vs. unclean, were spiritual in nature. That the law made certain foods “unclean” for Jews to eat didn’t mean that the food was not fit for human consumption, but that disobedience defiled a person (or made him “unclean”).
Once those laws were no longer, there was no such thing as “unclean” food. Those laws being abolished through Christ is the subject of Ephesians 2. To further demonstrate that being unclean (defiled) had nothing to do with the food itself, read Ezra 2:62, where “unclean” applied to a priest’s lack of genealogical records. If “unclean, meant “unhealthy,” then that verse would be absurd. It was wholly a spiritual construct. Furthermore, their teaching in this is easily shown to be false by Paul’s rebuke of Peter in Galatians 2:11-21, for Peter had acted on the message of his vision, and had started eating with Gentiles in their homes (which was previously forbidden by the ceremonial laws) until some Jews, who had not yet properly apportioned Christ’s work on Calvary, started condemning Peter’s actions, and he withdrew from the Gentiles. Paul said that Peter had condemned himself because of his hypocrisy. That alone (even if there weren’t other New Testament passages teaching this truth) thoroughly debunks this HRM tenet to be heresy, for if those laws had still applied, Paul would not have rebuked Peter for his hypocrisy, but for his breaking of the ceremonial laws.;
Judaism also still is a false religion (Satanism) and NOT even PART OF the origin of Christianity. It is the same religion that the Pharisees practiced.
Note the very cunning techniques Judiazers, Hebrew Roots enthusiasts such as Mark Biltz, deceive us and their followers. Modern day Jews and Judaism is all about worshipping the Anti Christ and not the real Jesus Christ, because they are BEWITCHED (Gal 3:1). This movement is called Hebrew Roots, and while it uses words and phrases from the bible and Jewish culture, there is nothing either Jewish or Christian about this group as you will see. The movement usually hides their beliefs and presents itself as simply seeking to educate Christians concerning their Jewish heritage. As they become acclimated to the Jewish orientation the more aberrant doctrines are slowly introduced. Hebrew Roots enthusiasts belief system seems to be very well “rationalized,” and their false peer pressure is blinding upon them all as well clearly a cult..
They affirm the existence of an original Hebrew-language New Testament and, in some cases, denigrate the existing New Testament text written in Greek. This becomes a subtle attack on the reliability of the text of our Bible. If the Greek text is unreliable and has been corrupted, as is charged by some, the Church no longer has a standard of truth. Their assumption is that the Church has lost its Jewish roots and is unaware that Jesus and His disciples were Jews living in obedience to the Torah. For the most part, those involved advocate the need for every believer to walk a Torah-observant life. This means that the ordinances of the Mosaic Covenant must be a central focus in the lifestyle of believers today as it was with the Old Testament Jews of Israel. Keeping the Torah includes keeping the Sabbath on the seventh day of the week (Saturday), celebrating the Jewish feasts and festivals, keeping the dietary laws, avoiding the “paganism” of Christianity (Christmas, Easter, etc.), and learning to understand the Scriptures from a Hebrew mindset. They teach that Gentile Christians have been grafted into Israel, and this is one reason every born-again believer in Jesus the Messiah is to participate in these observances. It is expressed that doing this is not required out of legalistic bondage, but out of a heart of love and obedience. However, they teach that to live a life that pleases God, this Torah-observant walk must be part of that life.
The movement maintains that Christianity has been indoctrinated with the culture and beliefs of Greek and Roman philosophy and that ultimately biblical Christianity, taught in churches today, has been corrupted with a pagan imitation of the New Testament gospels. “Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, [Ye must] be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no [such] commandment: It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who shall also tell [you] the same things by mouth. For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.” Acts 15:24-29
For them to suggest that any Gentile believer who follows Jesus must be placed under Old Testament law, Hebrew names is nothing but bondage, and it’s a bondage that the Bible speaks against not only in the verses quoted here, but in many other places as well. Regarding the freedom we have in Christ, let me leave you with this verse from the Master himself:
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36;
THESE JEWISH FALSE PROPHETS REALLY ARE STILL THE SONS OF THE SERPENT, THE DEVIL
If the Judaizers are such pious “Torah keepers” as they say they are, they must know better than adding their own meanings or words to the Word of God, and even than teaching them. Torah, and also other Books in the Bible, are more than clear on this, strictly prohibiting such abominable practices, as following:
Deuteronomy 4:2 “You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
Deuteronomy 12:32 “Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.
Proverbs 30:5-6 Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. (6) Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; (19) and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Need I list more?
Judaism is a false religion that follows an extremely large set of “law” as a way of living. And, this “Jewish law” spoken here is not Torah, but “Halakha,” a collection of orally transmitted interpretations of “Mitzvot” (613 biblical laws), “Talmudic laws,” and later including the rabbinical laws. Talmud consists of “Gemura” (“learning by tradition”), Mishna (“oral” Torah), and Torah. The actual Torah is the smallest part of the whole teaching, and it is mainly about the laws and the gematria (Kabbalistic numerology). Except actual Torah, they are all compilations of orally transmitted “teachings” of so-called “sages” and rabbis, which originated around the time of the Babylonian exile between 597 and 538 BC (2 Ki 24-25; 2 Ch 36; and Ezr – Neh).
“Judaism is not just a set of Jewish beliefs about God, man and the universe. Judaism is a comprehensive way of life, filled with rules and practices that affect every aspect of life: what you do when you wake up in the morning, what you can and cannot eat, what you can and cannot wear, how to groom yourself, how to conduct business, who you can marry, how to observe the holidays and Shabbat, and perhaps most important, how to treat God, other people, and animals. This set of rules and practices is known as halakhah.”
This “Halakha” was “the law” against which our Lord and Apostle Paul spoke so strongly; they were the “tradition of elders,” and “the law” we should not be “under” (Romans 1-8).
Matthew 15:(1) Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, (2) “Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.” (3) He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? (4) “For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ (5) “But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God”– (6) ‘then he need not honor his father or mother.’ Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. (7) “Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: (8) ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. (9) And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ “
Believing to be following the teaching of Moses, most of Israelites were probably “Judaized” by the time our Lord Jesus Christ began His ministry, which was over 400 years after the Pharisees began forming during the time of the Babylonian exile and had taken over the Judeans by their way, elevating themselves as the spiritual authority of the Israelites, against which Jesus Christ our Messiah spoke. Even the Apostle Peter was actually “Judaized,” as he followed the tradition of Judaism until he was rightfully rebuked by the Apostle Paul for doing so and he Peter repented of it.
Please make no mistake that the “false” movement of God, Hebraic Roots Awakening and the Messianic Jewish Movement are still a lie, the big “deception.” As this confusion is misleading some believers to practice legalism and empty traditions of Judaism. They the present Jews now today are not the “House of Judah.” The core group and the majority of the Zionist are false Jews. They, as a group, are neither true descendants of Judah nor Jacob, and not even of Abraham. Christians alone now are.. They are falsely trying to make Christians to look back and follow the Mosaic Laws and not too look forward to following Jesus Christ
Of a Jewish Heritage Apostle Paul had said on Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
Judaism, which “the Jews” practice today, and traditions that are appearing to be biblical have been all distorted and usurped by the occult meanings. There are many secular Jewish people, some may be actually Christians, but the Illuminati Zionist Jews, many Orthodox Jews, and most of the Ultra-Orthodox Jews do practice Satanism based on Kabbalah. The biblical sacred objects, such as menorah, and “Tree of life,” and even the name of YHVH (Tetragramaton, יהוה “yod-hey-vav-hey”), have become mystical satanic symbols to them. Their lives are full of Kabbalistic symbols, amulets, magical prayers that take away your sin, and highly satanic rituals.Zionism is a way, or a trap, to “draw” everyone to Israel for their final annihilation
Galatians 2:14 But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, “If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews?
So, according to the translation by the NKJV, “Judaizing” means “to live as Jews.” It is not just about circumcision, but to live according to the customs and traditions of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
If you follow the traditions of Judaism, you are in error, a Judaizer by definition. It does not matter either you believe that “you are saved by grace alone through faith” (Eph 2:8-9) and the circumcision is not required for the salvation, or not. If you do things what the Jews say to do, all most which are not applicable even if they were in the Bible, that is all “Judaizing,” which means, “conforming to the practices and customs of false Judaism.”
And, did you know that most of the practices and customs of the Messianic Jews are based on Judaism? And, Judaism, old or modern, is not based on the biblical teaching . . . not at all?
Christianity is made up of people from “every tribe, tongue, people, and nation” (Rev 5:9; 13:7; 14:6), and not just “the Jews.” Yes “the Jews,” are not the same as the House of Judah any longer.
And, the Judaizers are those who “live as the Jews,” and who influence non-Jews to live as the Jews, following the teaching of Halakha, wearing what they wear (tallit, tzitzi, and kippah, etc.), talking like they talk with jargon Hebrew terminologies, calling YHVH, “HaShem,” meaning “the name,” spelling “God” with a dash in the middle (“G-d”), praying the prescribed prayers at the prescribed time, keeping the Sabbath and the Feasts religiously, eating the Kosher Food, and even getting circumcised. But, when they do them, they do with fear of breaking the law and feel the guilt when they do not do what they are “supposed to” do. Judaism is a false religion originates in the ancient Babylon. Judaism is of Satan. It only has an outward appearance that they the Jews do follow Torah and worship God according to the Old Covenant. Judaism was and is NOT of God , but of Satan, and 2) IS NOT the origin of Christianity.
It is a fact that the Judaizers often first falsely tell you the truth that the Christianity is revised Judaism. Then, they invariably lie and say that their Judaized way is the true way to worship God, Jesus, and that Christians do not know “Torah” the way the Jews do and that is CORRECT also! Of course, we all mostly do not know it, and that is a good thing, BECAUSE the Jews’ way of knowing Torah is Judaism, which is through Talmud (Mishnah ‘Oral Torah,’ Gemaria, Halakha) and NOT the original Five Books of Moses even intented for the past Jews. Before you know it if you falsely listen to them , then, you would be observing the feasts and Sabbath in Judaic ways. This is the very definition of Judaization. Doing so is as empty observation even of Easters and Christmas … From one big lie to another, and you are being this still still deceived.
The fallacy that Christianity originated in Judaism is the BIGGEST LIE of this Age. The term, “Judeo-Christian” must be eliminated from your vocabulary and be replaced by the term, “Anointed Christianity.” For anyone to teach “Torah” to Christians, which he tells us to love and know God better in the same statement is still a great big lie, a demonic undertaken.. Judaism is the past, Christianity is the future. why are they doing these things to deceive us? Because … Messianic and Hebraic Roots Movements are the new Judaization plot of the false Zionists, who have been working in order to lead you astray into the trap of the Satanistic and Kabbalistic Judaism. This is a major part of the preparation for the “Great Deception,” and that is the false Jewish Yeshua messiah to come to Israel yet.. It is no minor mistake or confusion now, but it this delusion will lead you into the great deception, then you will find yourself trapped in the midst of the Great Deception. And, then, it will be too late for you too. You will go to Hell and not to the New Heavenly Jerusalem, in Heaven..
Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.”
Ephesians 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
One thing is certain … that when THIS FALSE end time prophecy is widely promoted by a card-carrying Zionist, such as John Hagee (the founder of Christians United For Israel) with bells and whistles, it is not true prophecy. Simple, and that easy. The problem is, however, that too many people are mindlessly listening to him and following him, not even knowing what “Zionism” is AND WHAT THE BIBLE REALY SAYS ABOUT IT TOO. John Hagee clearly “predicts” that the rapture will occur sometime during the four blood moon eclipses, and somewhat vaguely implies that the Messiah is returning after that. But, more importantly, he has always been a strong advocate for the unbiblical “Armageddon,” by which he means the Middle Eastern War in which Israel attacks the Arabic nations. He wants war and wants Israel to nuke Iran. This is false Zionism: the projection of the supremacy of the Illuminati-controlled current political State of Israel. It is the way our Father chooses to fulfill His plan to eliminate the evil on earth, but we are never to conform to the false way the current State of Israel is and her political agenda are at all.
– a false international movement originally for the establishment of a Jewish national or religious community in Palestine and later for the support of modern Israel
– a false Jewish movement that arose in the late 19th century in response to growing anti-Semitism and sought to re-establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Modern Zionism is concerned with the support and development of the state of Israel.
It was first conceptualized by a Jewish German, Theodor Herzl, in his book, “Der Judenstat” (“The Jewish State,” 1896), and later became a strong and forceful movement among the Jews.
As you can see already from the definitions above, this “movement” has nothing to do with the true biblical and genetic Israelite. And, this is a “political movement,” falsely claiming the biblical entitlement of the Land of Israel based on the “false” identity as the Children of Abraham (Gen 12-17), claiming the right to live in the Land of Israel according to the Abrahamic Covenant, and also, based on the false prophecy that “the Jews” are still now the “Chosen People” of God to rule the world as Christians alone now are the chosen people of God.
The current State of Israel has been created with political manipulations and the military force by a small group of international banker elites for their rebellious ambitions. The illuminati, the agent of Satan (Lucifer, they prefer to call), has been working tirelessly for hundreds of years to mimic and “counterfeit” the true Restoration through his last and the greatest plot called, the “New World Order (NWO).” They are trying to establish a police-state centralized one-world government with one-world religion, which is the Satanism (includes Freemasonry, Judaism, Paganism, New Age, Jehovah Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, Church of God, Mormonism, etc. all false religions combined), placing their own “false messiah” on the throne, and rule from Jerusalem. They are even trying to build their own so-called the “third temple” to forcefully fulfill their diabolical understanding of the biblical prophecies (Temple Institute). I kid you not.
That is the Satan’s grand scheme to take over the process of the Restoration and subvert it, just as he has been plotting and relentlessly working at it from the beginning.
God, Jesus Christ never intended to re establish a Jewish nation in the Land of Israel even “by force” or by the hand of man.The New Jerusalem is the Bride of the Messiah Jesus , and that rather still will be the City of God where His remnant who will have been regenerated and perfected spiritually will dwell with their God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit
The Abrahamic Covenant was fulfilled as the Messiah Jesus the Christ, his Seed (Gen 22:18; Gal 3:16), came, died for us, and was resurrected. Now, those who believe in Him of any race, nationality, or tongue can inherit the heavenly Jerusalem in Him in the Age to come (Gal 3:13; et al.). The biblical Zion is not meant to be on earth or consisted of any particular race or people group
Heb 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.
The problem even with the Messianic Jews and most JEWS is that they are color blind.. they can only see things through a Jewish perspective.. not the reality.
JESUS HAD WARNED THE JEWS IN JERUSALEM ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM AND IT’S TEMPLE AND WHY AS WELL.
Matthew 23:37,38:O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent to you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!
Luke 19:41-44 And when he (Jesus) was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
Now most of the Jews of their day (especially the Essenes and the Pharisees) even most Jews today were looking falsely for a Jewish Messiah to come who would restore national Israel, set up an earthly kingdom,and were surprised Jesus was talking about the destruction of the temple and the desolation of Israel next instead, Jesus rather indicated the desolation next of the Jews, Israel * and he relatedly prophesied both the destruction of the temple and Jerusalem; and they of course had expected falsely that anyway next the temple in Jerusalem would be rebuilt,and the nation of Israel would be restored which will never happen again in God ‘s plan…. Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. so they had asked , 1 “When will this happen, and 2 what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
The meaning of the term desolate is very clear, The nation of Israel , Jews next will be replaced as God’s chosen ones.. .. 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 bishopric let another take.
Chosen is never again used by God to indicate the Jews but rather only of the Christian church.
John 6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
John 13:18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
1 Corinthians 2: 14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.
1 Corinthians 1: 2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours:
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
10 Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment.
23 but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,
24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
The God of the Old Testament was never a Jew, God called the Jews to be His “chosen people” through whom He would accomplish His master plan for history (Deuteronomy 7:6).
It was through the Jewish people that God gave the world His Word. And it was through the Jews that He sent the Messiah.The Hebrew Scriptures say that the Jews were also chosen to be witnesses of God — of what it means to have a relationship with Him (Isaiah 43:10-12).
The history of Israel attests to the fact that when one is faithful to God, He blesses; when one is unfaithful, He disciplines; and when one repents, God forgives and forgets and begins to bless once again. Today the Jews are under God’s curse, Negative discipline.
Jesus himself told His disciples that a day would come when the Jews would be dispersed among all the nations of the world and Jerusalem would be trampled down by the Gentiles, the disobedience of the Jews has invalidated God’s promises to them. God had already given the descendants of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob the title deed to the land of Canaan (Genesis 12:1-3; 17:1-8; 26:1-5; and 28:13-14).
Now,Moses proclaimed that if the people were obedient to God, He would shower them with blessings (Deuteronomy 28:1-14). Their children, their crops and their animals would be blessed (28:4). Their enemies would be defeated and they would “abound in prosperity” and be established as “a holy people whom the rest of the world would fear (28:7-11).
Moses proceeded to sternly warn them that if they were disobedient to God, He would place curses on them. Their children would rebel, their crops would fail and their animals would not reproduce (Deuteronomy 28:16-19). They would also suffer from diseases, drought, and foreign domination (28:21,24,33).
“Moreover, the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; and there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone, which you or your fathers have not known” (Deuteronomy 28:64). After listing many possible remedial judgments (Leviticus 26:14-31), just as in Deuteronomy, Moses warned that God’s ultimate judgment would be their “scattering among the nations” (26:33).
Hadrian, the Roman Emperor,according to Roman historian Cassius Dio (c. 150-235 AD), had 580,000 Jews killed, and 50 fortified towns and 985 villages were razed to the ground. Those who were not killed were sold into slavery. Additionally, Hadrian ordered Jews to be banned from Jerusalem, except on the day of Tisha B’Av (the day of mourning over the destruction of the first two temples)
According to Roman records, there were about 8 to 10 million Jews in the First Century. Now there are only about 4 million more today than 2,000 years ago. This fact is the fulfillment of this prophecy is found in Deuteronomy 4:27— “And the LORD will scatter you among the peoples, and you shall be left few in number among the nations, where the LORD shall drive you.”
The Christian view concerning the Jews today is that “God has washed His hands of all of them”
Romans 15:8 For I say that Christ has become a servant to the circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the promises given to the fathers,
Romans 12:5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Now Jesus was truly a Jew or not? Is Jesus still a Jew and his followers as well? NO.
The NT described as “believers”, as those who “believe in (on) the Lord Jesus”, as “Christians” .
Then were all those who are referred to as “Jews” in the NT Scriptures followers of the Lord Jesus Christ or rather adherents to an OT based (and, at least in part, an apostate) religion?
Were those who are referred to as “Gentiles” followers and believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, the non Jewish folks who who were not natural descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel? No.
And then were those who are referred to as members of the “church of God” believers in and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ who then were also called by the term “Christian”? Yes
Now what definition or descriptive term one should use today for those who are believers in and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ in the biblical sense … since the lying Messianic Jews say that ‘Christian” would then not be fitting for the biblical followers of Christ?
Now those of a Gentile background who repented and believed in and became followers of the Lord Jesus Christ biblically speaking still “Gentiles” or honestly had they become members of the “church of God” and thus were now “Christians” rather than “Gentiles”?
And were also not those of a Jew background who repented and believed in and became followers of the Lord Jesus Christ biblically speaking are not still “Jews” but rather had they become members of the “church of God” and thus truly were now “Christians” rather than “Jews”? Yes.
Even though thousands of Jewish people embraced Jesus in the early days of the Christian church (three thousand in Acts 2:41; at least another two thousand in Acts 4:4). Nevertheless, one of the first and greatest Christian missionary, an ex Jew himself and former Pharisee, the apostle Paul, protested that he was “saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come to pass: that the Messiah must suffer and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to our people and to the Gentiles” (Acts 26:22–23).
Most Jewish people still turn away from Jesus as the one who fulfills the promises of God in the Jewish Scriptures. They Reject Jesus, Reject God.
Neither Jesus nor his apostles taught that Israel would be rescued from judgment in spite of turning away from Jesus. Jesus did not come as one among many ways to God. He came as the true and only Jewish Messiah and Mediator between God and man. “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
And he Jesus taught plainly that to reject him was to reject God
“You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also.” (John 8:19)
“Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.” (John 5:23)
“I know that you do not have the love of God within you. I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me.” (John 5:42–43)
“If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here.” (John 8:42)
“No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.” (1 John 2:23)
Why do many of the Jews believe that Jesus did not exist until he was conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary? Has that not been historically been a part of their doctrine? Is it because God is not Jewish? At least since the sixth century before Christ, the bedrock of Judaism has been monotheism, belief in one God which excludes Jesus..
However many Jews at the time of Jesus believed he was the Messiah and became Christians. The New covenant is for Everyone and not a sole Jewish Nation.
The Mosaic Covenant and Torah was given only to the Jewish people that were present at Mt. Sinai. If the Mosaic covenant were for the whole world: Why is this not stated anywhere in the bible?
Also, how do we explain why after 3300 years the very people who it has been given to (the Jews) haven’t figured this out and insist it is Noah’s laws for the rest of the world?
Yeshua, a replacement Messiah, is a bold faced liar and not the real Jesus Christ . So why do they write “G-d” and use Hebraic terminology for the Greek New Testament original Jesus. Because it is only Jesus what his mother and brothers , disciples, apostles, others have called him. Jesus was the Christ. He was born Jewish and died a Christian.
Was Jesus a Jew? Of course, Jesus was a Jew. He was born of a Jewish mother, in Galilee, a Jewish part of the world. He’s not a Sadducee. He’s not a Pharisee. Jesus Christ,” the Anointed One (John 1:41, 4:25); was not only a Rabbi but Prophet (Matt. 7:28-8:1). Jesus next in retrospect is seen not as a Jew, but as something else, as a founder of Christianity.
Jesus’ followers were first called Christians in Antioch (Acts 11:26)
“Now some of the scribes were sitting there asking themselves, ‘Why does this man speak that way? Who but God alone can forgive sins?’ Jesus immediately knew in his mind what they were thinking to themselves, so he said, ‘Why are you thinking such things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, Your sins are forgiven, or to say, Rise, pick up your mat and walk? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority for sins on earth—he said to the paralytic, ‘I say to you, rise, pick up your mat, and go home’” (Mark 2:8-11).
After Caiaphas, the high priest, commanded Jesus, “I order you to tell us under oath before the living God whether you are the Messiah, the Son of God,” Jesus said, “You have said so. But I tell you: From now on you will see ‘the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power’ and ‘coming on the clouds of heaven.’ Then the high priest tore his robes and said, ‘He has blasphemed! What further need have we of witnesses? You [members of the Sanhedrin] have now heard the blasphemy; what is your opinion?’ They said in reply, ‘He deserves to die!’” (Matthew 26:63-66, with a similar passage in Mark 14:61-64).
Now do we really want to become “Jewish”, seeing what the NT scriptures tell us about “the sins of the Jews” at the time of Christ and their false beliefs ? No.
Was not the Jewish understanding of the coming kingdom with Christ as a political leader and deliverer and re-establisher of a “earthly nation” false? Yes.
In light of the fact that in the NT scriptures any “Jewishness” seems mostly used for the beliefs / actions of “unbelieving Jews”, one ought perhaps to notice more emphatically the difference between “divine truth” and “Jewish teaching” ?
Jews at the time of Christ and in the past had too many things wrong concerning Christ, NT Christianity, the religion of Jesus, and what he commands us to believe and do, it now has been corrupted by the world religion known as Judaism.
NT Christianity is not just a copy of biblical Judaism, and even the Apostle Paul fought constantly the tendency of the Moses party to drag Christians back under the Old Covenant. Apostle Paul truly waged a relentless war against those who wanted Christians to be circumcised and observe food laws and Sabbath, holy days and new moons.
The words of Paul are just as much scripture as the OT, in fact they are the final word to us in the New Covenant. There is a big vast unacceptable difference between Christians and Jewish, Hebrew Christians.
Jews today need to separate the 2 covenants and 2 separate callings instead of them trying to take the land of promise by force(pressing into it).
According to Gal 3.29 only “in Christ” do people of all nations, bloods, and creeds become the new commonwealth [Israel] of God [Gal 6.16].
2 Corinthians 9:5 So I thought it necessary to urge the brethren that they would go on ahead to you and arrange beforehand your previously promised bountiful gift, so that the same would be ready as a bountiful gift and not affected by covetousness.
16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as referring to many, but rather to one, “And to your seed,” that is, Christ.
18 For if the inheritance is based on law, it is no longer based on a promise; but God has granted it to Abraham by means of a promise.
22 But the Scripture has shut up everyone under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise
Rom 10:1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.
Romans 10: 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
5 For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is based on law shall live by that righteousness.
6 But the righteousness based on faith speaks as follows: ” Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ (that is, to bring Christ down),
7 or ‘ Who will descend into the abyss?’ (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).”
8 But what does it say? ” The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart“–that is, the word of faith which we are preaching,
9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
11 For the Scripture says, ” Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.”
12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him;
13 for ” Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?
15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, ” How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!”
16 However, they did not all heed the good news; for Isaiah says, ” Lord, who has believed our report?”
17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
18 But I say, surely they have never heard, have they? Indeed they have; ” Their voice has gone out into all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.”
19 But I say, surely Israel did not know, did they? First Moses says, ” I will make you jealous by that which is not a nation, By a nation without understanding will I anger you.”
20 And Isaiah is very bold and says, ” I was found by those who did not seek Me, I became manifest to those who did not ask for Me.”
21 But as for Israel He says, ” All the day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and obstinate people.
Jews and Christians both claim to have God’s Word, but they basically do not have the same religion. Judaism does not accept the central Christian teaching that Jesus Christ is the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament.
Jews who have become supposedly Christians may refer to themselves as “completed Jews.” but they are certainly not Christians. Faith in Yeshua is a false faith , only a clear affirmation of Jews identity as still being Jews not Christians.
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Gal 3.28
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God. 2 The Word was with God in the beginning. 3 All things were created by him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of mankind. 5 And the light shines on in the darkness, but the darkness has not mastered it. 6 A man came, sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that everyone might believe through him. 8 He himself was not the light, but he came to testify about the light. 9 The true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was created by him, but the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to what was his own, but his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who have received him – those who believe in his name – he has given the right to become God’s children 13
– children not born by human parents or by human desire or a husband’s decision, but by God.
14 Now the Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We saw his glory – the glory of the one and only, full of grace and truth, who came from the Father. 15 John testified about him and shouted out, “This one was the one about whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is greater than I am, because he existed before me.’” 16 For we have all received from his fullness one gracious gift after another. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God. The only one, himself God, who is in closest fellowship with the Father, has made God known.
The Mosaic law was temporarily established for a certain purpose to keep a people separate so a seed could come in the line of David,Jacob,Isaac,Abraham, Shem, Seth and Adam. The Mosaic Law is not required for any Salvation because it was just a requirement of a nation who truly rejected next their Messiah, the future promises as as promised to Abraham
2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
In his well known prophecy about the end of the age recorded by Matthew and Luke, Jesus predicted the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem which came to pass 40 years after his death and resurrection. The Meaning of The Number 40, this number 40 symbolizes a period of warning . The prophet Jonah powerfully warned ancient Nineveh, for forty days, that its destruction would come because of its many sins.
