Anti-Semitism: Here is one definition of Anti-Semitism from the lips of a Jew: “Anti-Semitism does NOT signify opposition to Semitism.  THERE IS NO SUCH THING.  It is an expression we use effectively as a SMEARWORD, used to brand anyone who brings criticism against us.”  Harold W. Rosenthal (Jewish)

.

Today Sweden’s third-largest city  Malmo has   high levels of anti-Semitism,    serial harassment of the city’s Rabbi and other Jews and Jewish institutions. .. The demonization of the Jewish state — is rampant in most countries other than the U.S., Canada and Australia, although even there, it now is  emerging  as a force.. In most of Europe,   opinion polls indicate that almost half the population regard Israel as a greater threat to world peace than Iran and North Korea, equate Jews with Nazis, and believe that Israelis are seeking to commit genocide against the Palestinians.  Most Zionists no longer claim that God gave the Holy Land to the Jews; instead they contend that the Jewish state is necessary as a haven for world Jewry. According to  the Jews  they are in no way responsible for their own unpopularity from ancient times. What then is the source of such persistent hostility to this supposedly innocent people? Can it be the Jews themselves? The state of Israel is based on an ethnic supremacism that would be rightfully  condemned as anti-Semitic if it were enforced   by the gentiles. Too many Jews hate Christian morality teachings.  Most Jews  still do regard conversion to Christianity as the ultimate treason to Jewry and resent Christian attempts to convert them; never mind that for Christians, concern for the salvation of souls is the highest charity next to the adoration of God. 

.

The Ongoing false Jewish Assault on Christianity
.
The wolves have already entered the sheep-fold, and most of the sheep are unaware that the intent of the wolves is to DEVOUR them! 
.
Most  Jewish scholar, leaders    who  falsely even do not address the Jewish attitudes towards the Christians  do falsely hate the Gospels of Matthew and John,  the Book of Acts,  Apostle’s Paul’s epistles,  places where the Jews are  clearly depicted as engineering the  false Crucifixion, of Jesus Christ with the assistance of Romans who “know not what they do.”  So many  Jews have absurdly  even demanded that all of the offending passages be deleted from the  New testament Scriptures, not   caring that all Christians regard their Holy Books as off-limits to  any human censorships.
.
Furthermore  the Talmudic imprecations against Christ and Christians have helped form the Bolshevik Jews’ anti-Christian animus? As well as the persecution of Christians, and  the  attempted eradication of Christian culture in America today? So will Jews make an effort to expunge the offending passages from the Talmud?  No.
.
 What the Cause of Christ has endured at the hands of Jews, through the centuries, far surpasses ANYTHING the Jewish people have suffered .  The TRUTH is that throughout history, the Jews have been persecuting Christians, and  it is the Christians, and NOT the Jew who are the big REAL VICTIMS!
.
Jewish based  leaders   and not just Muslims are part of those groups who want  to destroy  all Christians and their nations so so they could control ALL of   the world even today. In the US the agenda of major Jewish groups is the de-Christianization of America, using a debased interpretation of the “living Constitution” as their instrument. 
.
The goal of the Jews in Jesus’ time was as it is today the extermination of Christ, Christians AND Christianity.
 .
 History is replete with the lesson that a country in which the Jews get the upper hand is in danger.
.
In the first twelve chapters of the book of Acts, of the New Testament,  five specific persecutions, sponsored by Jews against the group of new Christian believers, are recorded.
First persecution:  Acts 4:1-22. 
Second persecution:  Acts 5:17-41. 
Third persecution:  Acts 7:54-60 
The Fourth persecution:  Acts 8:1-3.
Fifth persecution:  Acts 12:1-19. 
The Acts of the Apostles tells how the early Church was forced to take various precautions “for fear of the Jews.”
.

St. Justin said in the middle of the second century:  “The Jews were behind all the persecutions of the Christians.  They wandered through the country, everywhere hating and undermining the Christian faith.”

.

Tertullion said about the same time, “The Jews formed the breeding ground of all anti-Christian action.”

.

The Jews had invaded, and took over,  even the Catholic Church over time even  since the Inquisition,the  international Jewry told the rank and file Jews to pretend to convert, then get inside the Catholic church and   take it over.   They had influenced  and changed it’s theology as well adding the mosaic priesthood system, décor.

.

The Jews had invaded, and  changed   even the evangelical  Church to produce  the false dispensational teachings, doctrines.

.
Such was the experience of Europe during Jewish-led Communist revolutions in Russia, Hungary, Romania, and Germany after World War I.   The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia was Jewish!  Lenin was a Jew.  Stalin was a Jew.  Karl Marx (author of the Communist Manifesto) was a Jew.  Leon Trotsky (real name – Bronstein) the head of the Red Army was a Jew, as were close to 80% of ALL the Bolshevists who murdered the Czar and his family and took over Russia by force.   No informed person who is knowledgeable and truthful denies the Jewish character of Communism.  Out of the 545 members of the bureaucracy of Russian Revolutionary Bolshevism, 454 were Jews and there were only 23 Russians in the group  The Russian Empire was destroyed by the Red Jewish supporters in the early 1900s because Russian Christians did not possess sufficient spiritual vitality to resist the onslaught. Its gorgeous temples were turned into museums, brothels, and centers of entertainment and vice.  Its wealth was confiscated.  Its priests and other leaders were put to death.  Its members were slaughtered by the millions. While the atheistic Soviet regime made war on Christians, murdering tens of thousands of Orthodox priests, it also showed its true colors by making anti-Semitism a capital crime.
 .
“Why should we believe in God?  We hate Christianity and Christians.  Even the best of them must be regarded as our worst enemies.  They preach love of one’s neighbor, and pity, which is contrary to our principles.  Christian love is a hindrance to the revolution.  Down with love of one’s neighbor; what we want is hatred.  We must know how to hate, for only at this price, can we conquer the universe.  We have done with the kings of the earth; let us now deal with the kings of the skies.  The anti-religious campaign must not be restricted to Soviet Russia: it should be carried on throughout the entire world.  The fight should also be developed in the Moslem and Catholic countries, with the same ends in view and by the same means.”  Lunatcharski
 .
in the 1900 Germans were industrious, clean, organized, intelligent, and a strong Christian nation.  For all those reasons – the Jews HATED the Germans!  Germany went into Russia  in  WORLD WAR II  to try to save the millions of Germans who had been living in the Ukraine for several hundreds of years, having been invited there by the Czar to farm the land.  When the Communist, Jewish Bolshevists took over, they started killing and starving these Germans in the Ukraine.  Germany went into Russia as a Rescue Mission. The same thing happened in Poland.  As the Jews running Poland, started killing the Germans who were now under their control.  The Danzig corridor, the life-line between Germany and Poland, was closed off, prohibiting Germans from getting back to Germany.  So the German Nation went on a Rescue Mission into Poland in an attempt to SAVE the Germans living there.

.

U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and the leader of the U.S.S.R., Joseph Stalin, WERE ALSO  ALL JEWISH!

.

U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower, was ALSO a Jew, Explains why he hated the Russians so much too.

.

“Even a casual reading of the Old and New Testaments will show that the Jews are a disobedient and rebellious people.  Nowhere in Scripture are Christians required to excuse and condone their evil deed simply because of their culture or a perceived “nationality.”   ‘Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! … “who  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.  Wherefore you are witnesses unto yourselves, that you are the children of them that killed the prophets.  Fill up then the measure of your fathers.  You serpents, you veneration of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?”

.

Matthew 23
13 “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
14 [Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation.]
15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
16 “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, that is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple is obligated.’
23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.
25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence.
27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous,
.

Nothing has changed here.. Nothing is different today. 

.

Virtually all Jewish leaders  disdain “Gentiles” as unclean. And undeniably too  the Jew is a “Christ hater.”  The spirit of Judaism is one of direct antagonism Jesus Christ, Christianity.

.

“Behold I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them you will kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city; 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 you slew between the temple and the altar.”  Matthew 23:35

.

“When Jesus accused them of killing Abel, He was seeing beyond their particular nationality.  He was seeing beyond the garb of flesh that they were wearing.  He was looking deep into their souls.  He was seeing the demonic poison that was stored up in their life stream.  He knew that the same Satanic hatred for the program of God that took the life of Abel was to reach its climax in the murder of the Messiah and His apostles. 

.

“In the twenty-third chapter of Matthew, we find Christ charging the Jews with the same sin that was laid against Cain – namely, that they had become the instruments of Satan for the destruction of the plan of human redemption.  The poison of the serpent had been handed down until that hour; it was flowing in their vein; the blood of the righteous Abel was upon them; they were cooperating with Satan; they had permitted themselves to become a party to the same crime of which Cain was guilty: they were trying to destroy the Saviour of the world even as Cain tried to destroy the line (through Abel) from which the Redeemer was to be born.”

.

The Talmud even teaches that the Jewish nation is the only nation selected by God, while all the remaining ones are contemptible and hateful.  That all property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which consequently is entitled to seize upon it without scruples.  Than an orthodox Jew is not bound to observe principles of morality towards people of other nations, and on the contrary, he even ought to act against morality, if it is profitable for himself or for the interest of the Jews in general. 

.

History also PROVES conclusively that for OVER 2,000 years,   the JEWS   have been still persecuting and KILLING  the Christians!

Eternal security

jesus1
Eternal security – is it biblical?”
 .
It is amazing how many ungodly professing Christians  still do think and falsely preach that just cause they had once received Jesus Christ as their LORD and saviour, they can now even  live a self centered life, or cheat, lie, steal, sin deliberately and they next now will face no personal negative repercussions, they will not even lose their salvation..
 .
 Philippians 3: 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
.
1 Timothy 4: 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
.
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.  .

ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE DOCTRINE OF ETERNAL SECURITY  IS FALSE and  also STILL false is the Rapture doctrine, which was generally the invention of the Plymouth Brethren led by John Nelson Darby (1800-1882), the idea that Jesus Christ will return for His true Church just before the beginning of the Great Tribulation in a secret gathering or “catching away” was an important part of Darby’s teaching and by 1860 the “rapture” had made its way to the United States

https://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2015/08/20/why-is-dispensationalist-theology-false/

.

Scriptures that refute “Eternal Security”

1 Parable of sower

  • Mark 4:16 (Luke 8:13) “And in a similar way these are the ones on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy; (they believe for a while) and they have no firm root in themselves, but are only temporary; then, when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they fall away.

2 Fallen from grace passage:

  • Galatians 5:4 “You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.”

3 Pruning passages:

  • John 15:5-6 “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch, and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.”
  • Romans 11:19-23 “You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear; for if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you. Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in; for God is able to graft them in again.”

4 Hebrews Passages:

  • Hebrews 6:4-6 For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God, and put Him to open shame.
  • Hebrews 10:26-27 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain terrifying expectation of judgment, and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries.”
  • Hebrews 10:38-39 “But My righteous one shall live by faith; And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him. But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.”

5 Doctrinal Apostasy passages:

  • Acts 20:17,28-30 “And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called to him the elders of the church.” … “I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.”
  • 1 Timothy 1:18-21 “fight the good fight, keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith. Among these are HYMENAEUS and Alexander”
  • 2 Timothy 2:16-18 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are HYMENAEUS and Philetus, men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and thus they upset the faith of some.
  • 1 Timothy 4:1 “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons”
  • 1 Timothy 6:20-21 “O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”-which some have professed and thus gone astray from the faith.”
  • 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.”
  • 2 Peter 3:17 “You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest, being carried away by the error of unprincipled men, you fall from your own steadfastness”
  • 2 John 8-9 “Watch yourselves, that you might not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.”

6 Moral Apostasy passages:

  • 1 Timothy 6:9-10 “But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith, and pierced themselves with many a pang.”
  • 2 Peter 2:20-22 “For if after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment delivered to them. It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.””
  • James 5:19-20 “My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth, and one turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death, and will cover a multitude of sins.”

7 Revelation passages:

  • Revelation 2:4-5 “‘But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. ‘Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you, and will remove your lampstand out of its place-unless you repent.”
  • Revelation 3:5 “‘He who overcomes shall thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father, and before His angels.
  • Revelation 3:16-17 ‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. ‘Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked”

8 Old Testament passages

  • Ezekiel 18:24-26 “But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that a wicked man does, will he live? All his righteous deeds which he has done will not be remembered for his treachery which he has committed and his sin which he has committed; for them he will die. “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not right.’ Hear now, O house of Israel! Is My way not right? Is it not your ways that are not right? “When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies because of it, for his iniquity which he has committed he will die.”

.

The fact the Bible exhorts to faithfulness proves one can be lost

1.be steadfast immovable: 1 Cor 15:58

2.If these qualities are yours…2 Pe 1:5-11

3.we will reap if we do not grow weary: Gal 6:9

4.be faithful unto death and I will give crown of life: Rev 2:10

5.practice these things and God will be with you: Phil 4:9

.

Eternal salvation is only given to the obedient –

.

Once made perfect, he [Jesus] became the source of eternal salvation for all who OBEY him (Heb. 5:9). All , people need to get saved and stay saved, which often doesn’t happen! The Christian life is a fight against sin (Heb. 12:4). Sin not only defiles, it can bring a righteous person to his spiritual death. To be worthy of Jesus, you must place him first in your life (even before your family), take up your cross and follow Jesus (Mt. 10:37,38). Only the continual followers of Jesus possess eternal life. Multitudes in our day, who profess to be Christians, only have the faith of demons. They profess Jesus as the Son of God, but live in sin. They do NOT have eternal salvation.

.

It was Christ who said, “You will know them by their fruits.” And Christ went on to say, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord.” shall even enter the kingdom of heaven next.”” Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father who is in heaven.” Which includes manifesting the fruit of the holy Spirit.

.

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, … In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, {constantly} nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following (1 Tim. 4:1,6).

While it is true that  
Jude 24 declares, “To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy.” God’s power is able to keep the believer from falling and to present us before His glorious presence. But our eternal security is not just a result of God keeping us,  maintaining our own salvation as we have our role, responsibilities as well.
.
The Lord Jesus Christ proclaimed, “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand” (
John 10:28-29b).
.
Ephesians 4:30 tells us that believers are “sealed for the day of redemption.”
 .
 Romans 8:38-39, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
.
Matthew 6: 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

15  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses

 .
It is also true that we have a free will still, we are not puppets and we can next chose, will to leave God on pour own, choose to go to Hell rather too.
 .
Romans 8: 1    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
 .
Galatians 6: 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
 .
Matthew 10: 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
 .
Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Matthew 21:

3 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

 

The Sin Of Worshiping The Land Of Israel Instead is Idolatry,  as idolizing and worshiping of Jerusalem, Israel and the Jews is evil in the sight of God.  Especially since Israel today is a shameful nation that has abandoned the sole God of the Bible, Jesus Christ. It  is demonism  that are  inspiring people to idolize Israel and the Jews. You are now  also God, Bible IGNORANT if you do still think that God blesses any Christians who support a wicked, Christ-rejecting people, Nation of Israel. The land of Israel itself and the nation still  has nothing to do with our salvation from death and sin.!  Jesus alone now died, was buried and rose up three days later for our justification. Defending Israel is NOT even a man’s job. Defending Israel is NOT a function of the New Testament Church. In fact, this may come as a shock to you, but the Bible says that Jerusalem and the Jews will be attacked and defeated, continually  as we often hear about it too, until the Lord returns to earth, thus ending “the times of the Gentiles.” Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Israel today is not the fulfillment of any New Testament Biblical prophecy. as well. Only a total jackass, fool would believe otherwise..

.

Don’t be fooled  as God is not concerned with restoring Israel to the Holy Land anymore . Jesus told the Jewish rabbis of His time that the kingdom of God had been taken away from them forever. Zionism  itself now still has no need, purpose, nor concern for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Salvation is of the Lord. Salvation came through the Jews, not by the Jews. A Jew must be born-again or he or she cannot go to Heaven. Nicodemus was a Jewish leader, a Pharisee. Jesus warned Nicodemus that he needed to be born again or else he couldn’t enter into the kingdom of God (John 3:5-7). Hebrews 13:5 promises that God never forsakes His own. If you are unsaved,  do refuse to accept Jesus Christ as th Lord of your life, it is you alone that have already forsaken God and rather  now next Hell, the Lake of Fire will be your eternal home. https://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/hell-is-real/

Of all the words of Jesus recorded in the Bible, about twenty-five percent of his teaching was devoted to prophecy concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, the scattering of the Jewish people worldwide, and the end of the world. Instead of listening to the lies of mere men and demons do read Jesus’ words in their entirety, in the Bible itself firstly. Not one Bible Prophecies Endorses Israel’s present Behavior, land conquests. The nation of Israel was blessed when it obeyed God’s instructions, and it was next cursed when it disobeyed. The context of Jesus’ Olivet Discourse was about the pending desolation of Jerusalem and the Jews, and NOT about even the Gentile end times.   https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/desolate/

.

Isaiah 62:4…“…for the LORD delighteth in thee…” . The Lord delighteth in those Jews who obey Him. Zionists would have us to believe that God supports all Biological Jews, regardless of how they live, even accepting Christ-rejecters who blaspheme the name of the Lord continually in their hatred for God. Read these Scriptures that Jews won’t quote to you… .  It is also hypocritical for Christian Zionists to threaten the wrath of God against those who express disagreement with any policy of the Israeli government when they have done the same thing themselves.

.

And who is really “blessing Israel;” those who are working for peace in the Middle East, or those who are agitating for a war designed to get two-thirds of all Jews wiped out? Gershom Gorenberg, in his book “The End of Days: Fundamentalism and the Struggle for the Temple Mount,” says, “I’ve listened to…

American evangelical ministers who insist on their deep love for Israel and nevertheless eagerly await apocalyptic battles on Israel’s soil so terrible that the dry river bed will, they predict, fill with rivers of blood . Jeremiah 15:5-6, “For who shall have pity upon thee, O Jerusalem? or who shall bemoan thee? or who shall go aside to ask how thou doest? Thou hast forsaken me, saith the LORD, thou art gone backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee, and destroy thee; I am weary with repenting.” . 2nd Kings 18:11-12, “And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes: Because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them.”

1st John 2:22-23, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”

.

Anyone who denied that Jesus is the Messiah is a liar and antichrist. There are many antichrists; but only one ANTICHRIST (the Beast who is coming). The whole Judaic religion is of antichrist. Besides being of the “spirit of anti-Christ,” Judaism is based on the false Talmud which looks upon the Gentiles as cattle whose purpose is to serve the Jews. “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world, only to serve the People of Israel. “

.

After all that God did for the Jews, despite their lack of faith and gratitude, they next falsely selfishly take credit for everything and boast lying that it was by their own might that they became a mighty nation…

.

Deuteronomy 8:14-20, “Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end; And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.”

.

The Bible also plainly teaches that God is NO respecter of nations, persons (Romans 2:11). Romans 1:16 proclaims, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” . Zionism is based on a total misunderstanding of what the Bible teaches. It is true that God gave Palestine to Hebrews in ancient times. But the Bible teaches that their possession of the land was under a conditional covenant with Jehovah. If the Hebrews disobeyed their God, they would lose the land. This is clearly taught in Genesis 17:9-14, Exodus 19:4-5, Leviticus 26:40-45, Deuteronomy 7:12, Joshua 23:15-16, 1 Kings 9:6-9, 2 Chronicles 7:19-22, Jeremiah 34:12-22, Ezekiel 33:23-29, Matthew 21:43, etc. When the Jews rejected their Messiah, God sent the Romans to dispossess the Jews from their land in 70 AD. This was God’s complete punishment on the Jews for crucifying Christ – therefore, the Jews today should not be persecuted for something that happened 2000 years ago. However, their former title deed on the land of Palestine is not abrogated. The New Testament teaches that Christians are to focus on the heavenly Jerusalem, not the earthly one, John 4:21, Galatians 4:24-28, Hebrews 12:18-24. We are told in Hebrews 11:13-16 that even Abraham has no further interest in a restored Jewish state on earth, because he is in a much better place in heaven. Do they thank God for restoring their nation after 1,878 years of exile? (the year 1948 A.D. minus 1,978 = A.D. 70, the year Rome destroyed Jerusalem). The Jews were forced into exile.

.

The notion that unsaved, Christ-rejecting, Jews have been restored to their homeland is totally false and unbiblical. . Just as Abraham and Sarah took matters into their own hands, doubting God’s promise to give Sarah a son, trying to force God instead to bless Ishmael, which He refused; likewise, Communist-Marxist false Khazar Jews put Israel back on the map in 1948 through military brutality, indoctrinating U.S. churches to believe that God was behind their manmade restoration of the secular state of Israel, demanding for God to bless it. It doesn’t work that way. The Bible plainly teaches in Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” You just read it for yourself, Israel shall be trodden down by the Gentiles until the Lord Jesus Christ returns at the Rapture (which is when the Times of the Gentiles will end). We are now living in the Church age. https://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2015/03/04/so-what-reasons-do-you-have-to-support-the-jews-and-the-state-of-israel/

One of the most Common complaints one hears from the Jewish people is that they are being falsely persecuted, well in reality they are no so innocent.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/08/01/invaded/

THE  BIBLICAL CAUTION AGAINST JUDAISTIC PARTIALITY, AGAINST FAVOURING THE RICH (THE JUDAIZING CHRISTIAN) AND DEPRECIATING THE POOR (THE GENTILE CHRISTIAN) IN THEIR CHURCH-LIFE. CONSISTENT PROOF OF FAITH DEMANDED IN THE WORK OF CHRISTIAN BROTHERLY LOVE AND IN THE ACKNOWLEDGING OF UNITY OF FAITH IN THE FAITH-WORK OF ABRAHAB THE PATRIARCH AND IN THE FAITH-WORK OF RAHAB, THE GENTILE HARLOT. DEAD AND LIVING FAITH .

.

JAMES CHAPTER 2 : 1 MY brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.  For if there come unto your assembly1 a man with a gold ring,  in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment:   And ye have  respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him,   Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here   under my footstool:  Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?  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?  But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you  before the judgment seats?  Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?  If ye fulfil the royal law according to the Scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:  But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 1 For whosoever shall  keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.  For he that said, Do not commit adultery,  said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.  For he shall have judgment without mercy,  that 1 hath shewed no mercy; and13 mercy rejoiceth against judgment. What doth it profit,  my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute  of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?  Even so faith,  if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.  Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without   thy  works, and I will shew thee  my faith by my  works. Thou believest  that  there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our  father justified by works, when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?  And the Scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.  Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.  Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers,  and had sent them out another way?  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without  works is dead also.

.

It is all about Judaism  and not about personally hating any people and certainly not about hating the Jews in general.

.

Acts 15:10  Now then, why do you try to test God by putting on the necks of the disciples a yoke that neither we nor our fathers have been able to bear? . And by declaring, “The purpose of the Jewish state is to secure the Jewish future,” Benjamin Netanyahu,’s goal  is that waging wars for Israel will make the world safe—NOT for ‘democracy’—BUT for Jews, and for JEWS alone,  common characteristic of Jewry’s conduct and the modus operandi of its spokesmen. And  “Why is the future of Jews more important than the future of Gentiles?” .

The Abundant life

Jesus Christ should be the most important item daily in your life, Him and his Holy Spirit now as well.
vine
 Galatians 5:22-23 tells us, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” The fruit of the Holy Spirit is the direct result of the Holy Spirit’s presence in the life of a Christian.
 .
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
 .
John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
 .
John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
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.
.

Most Christians even are  living in spiritual defeat – powerless and fruitless,even  wondering if there is any validity to the Christian life – because they are living their own life, not God’s are still mostly self centered.

.

For those who fully accepted Jesus Christ as the lord of their life  Christ  has offered a greater promise  to the Christian   the assurance that he too can walk daily in the power of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, and thus experience an abundant and fruitful life of purpose and adventure?

.

Here again is His promise:

I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.

You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

.

The moment you invite Jesus  Christ into your life as Savior and Lord, you experience a  great spiritual birth. You are reunited with God.  You became not only again  a child of God but  can be  filled with the Holy Spirit. God forgave your sins – past, present and future – making you now  righteous, holy and acceptable in His sight because of Christ’s sacrifice for you on the cross. You are also  given the power to live a holy life and to also be a fruitful witness for God. You do not have to do this in your own strength, in the limitation of the carnal flesh .

.

John 1
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

.

If you do even sin by committing a deliberate act of disobedience, reedem yourself by confession. God’s Word even  His promises in John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” In the Greek, the original language of the New Testament, the word “confess” (homologeo) means to “agree with” of to “say along with.” Such agreement involves at least three considerations.

.

First, you acknowledge that your sin or sins – which should be named to God specifically – are wrong and are therefore grievous to Him.

Second, you acknowledge that God has already forgiven you through Christ’s death on the cross for your sins.

Third, you repent, which means that you change your attitude toward your sin. The power of the Holy Spirit will enable you to change both your attitude and conduct. Instead of doing what your old sinful nature – your flesh – wants to do, you can do what God wants you to do.

.

Note and be aware.. Mark 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
.
Luke 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.  9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
.
Luke 13
24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
.
Romans 15
20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation:
.1 Corinthians 9
25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

Luke 4

14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee:

.

Acts 1
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

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.

.

Acts 3
12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

.

Acts 4

33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

.

Luke 10
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

.

Mark 6
7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

Mark 9
1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

Keep your eyes on Jesus not the Jewish Antichrist Yeshua

2 Corinthians 11;4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

00SJ(1)

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

.

Why do most Jews, Messianic  Jews  reject Jesus?”  The Answer: What   do they do with Jesus Christ?   These Jews rejected Jesus Christ  because He failed, in their eyes, to do what they expected their version of the Messiah to do—destroy evil and all their enemies and establish an eternal kingdom with Israel as the preeminent nation of  the world. Dream on..     https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2016/04/07/yesshua-is-jewish-crap/

.

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..

.

Would you please give us a Bible verse from the Old Testament Hebrew Scriptures or from the Greek New Testament that tells us Messiah’s name is Yeshua?
.

None have ever done so or ever will since Yeshua is never found in the OT or NT in reference to Messiah. Messiah is never identified by name in the Hebrew Old Testament Scriptures. The Messiah’s  name Jesus is usually transliterated as either Yeshua or Yahshua by Jews   the  name solely corresponds to the Greek spelling Iesous, from which comes the English spelling Jesus. .

.

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.. and any of 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; God is JESUS ! SO SAY SO TOO!
.
Now anyone with any real spiritual discernment knows that the Hebrew name movement is false.The Sacred Name, Yeshua, Messianic Jew and Hebraic Root Movement are not only lacking, but often spiritually wrong and dangerous. This movement seeks to destroy and blot out the name of Jesus and are falsely working hard in moving away us away from Jesus Christ falsely aiming to conform Christianity to its roots in Judaism in practice, … is false teaching.
.
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. You should not lie and call Jesus solely now by a Hebrew name but by his real title which was, Greek and it is JESUS CHRIST.. note this at the time of Jesus Christ on earth he was not even called by his Hebrew translated name

Also the  evidence for Greek as the original language of the New Testament is substantial, extensive, even overwhelming ” The New Testament was originally written in Greek. JESUS CHRIST said the Holy Spirit alone will guide and lead you into all truth, not some persons.  

Again those who use Hebrew substitutions they are the one’s who not only are truly guilty of adding their false substitutions to the word of God and thus falsely try to and destroy any confidence in the genuine, authentic Greek New Testament.. they are guilty of adding the Hebrew Divine name into the New Testament where it is never found and this is all deliberate really demonic still on their parts too..    Many  falsely want a Judaic Messiah that will make Jews the center of the Universe on earth, ii is due to a false pride and the false idolistic Jewish culture worshi[.  Yes all these crooked, perverted, false people trying to appear more spiritual by using today a Hebrew title are obviously foolish , disturbed, deceived.

Rev. 7 states there will be people in God’s kingdom from every tribe, people, language and nation all redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. Of what nationality Messiah was as He walked the earth is totally irrelevant.              

2 Corinthians 11;4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.   https://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2015/05/16/messianic-judaism-beliefs-differ-from-the-christian-church/

.

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

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/

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.

“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 one of the blatant Jewish 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.;

.

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
(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
(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
(5) 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
(18) 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 15:1-9
(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.

.

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
(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
(4) And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.”

Ephesians 5:6
(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.

“Zionism,“

– 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 Israelites. 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:
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.

How to be Inexpressibly Happy

How to be Inexpressibly Happy

by R A TORREY—

Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: — 1 Peter 1:8

I have here a beautiful text, a text that you all know, but I wonder how many of you have ever pondered it enough to take in all its wonderful wealth of meaning.

A young woman in England many years ago always wore a golden locket that she would not allow anyone to open or look into, and everyone thought there must be some romance connected with that locket and that in that locket must be the picture of the one she loved. The young woman died at an early age, and after her death the locket was opened, everyone wondering whose face he would find within. And in the locket was found simply a little slip of paper with these words written upon it, “Though I have not seen Him, I love.” Her Lord Jesus was the only lover she knew and the only lover she longed for, and she had gone to be with Him, the one object of her whole heart’s devotion, the unseen but beloved Savior.

But it is to the last part of the verse that I wish to call your particular attention tonight, “Even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.”

This text informs us (and many of us do not need to be informed of it, for we know it by blessed experience) that one who really believes on Jesus Christ, our unseen, but ever living Lord and Savior, rejoices with “inexpressible and glorious joy.” The Greek word translated “joy” is a very strong word, describing extreme joy or jubilant joy. The word “inexpressible” declares that this jubilant joy is of such a character that we cannot, by any possibility, explain it adequately to others. Everyone who really believes on the Lord Jesus does rejoice with an jubilant joy that is beyond all description. And those who do truly believe on the Lord Jesus Christ are the only ones who rejoice this way. Others may have a certain amount of joy, a certain measure of gladness, but the only people who really know “inexpressible and glorious joy” are those who really believe on Jesus Christ.

Who is there among us who does not wish to be happy? Happiness is the one thing all men are seeking. One man seeks it in one way, and another man seeks it in another way, but all men are in pursuit of it. Even the man who is “happy only when he is miserable” is seeking happiness in this strange way of cultivating a delightful melancholy by always looking on the dark side of things. One man seeks money because he thinks that money will make a man happy. Another man seeks worldly pleasure because he thinks that worldly pleasure will make a man happy. Still another seeks learning, the knowledge of science, or philosophy, or history, or literature, because he thinks that learning brings the true joy; but they are all in pursuit of the one thing, happiness.

The vast majority of men who seek happiness do not find it. You may say what you please, but for the majority of men this is an unhappy world. I go down into the houses of the poor, I do not find many happy people there. I go into the homes of the rich, I do not find many happy people even there. Study the faces of the people you meet on the street, at places of entertainment, or anywhere else, how many really radiant faces do you see? When you do see one it is so exceptional that you note it at once. But there is a way, and a very simple way, a very sure way, and a way that is open to all, not only to find happiness, but to be unspeakably happy. Our text tells us what that way is. Listen, “Even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.”

This statement of Peter’s is true. How do I know it is true? In the first place, I know it is true because the Word of God says so. Whatever this book says is true. In the second place, I know it is true because I have put the matter to the test of personal experience, and found it true. A good many people say, “I do not believe the Bible.” Well, I do. I believe the Bible for a good many sufficient reasons; but there is this one reason why I believe the Bible that I wish to mention tonight: I believe the Bible because I have personally tested scores and scores of its most astonishing and apparently most incredible statements and found every one of them true in my own experience. Don’t you think that if I knew a man who made very many statements that I could test for myself, some of them apparently incredible, and I tested these statements one after another through a long period of years, and found every one of them true, and never one single statement failed, don’t you think that I would believe that man after a while? Well, that is just my experience with the Bible, and I believe it. I would be a fool if I did not. The statement of the text is one of those that I have tested, and I have found it true.

I was not always happy. Indeed, I was once unspeakably miserable. I had sought happiness very earnestly. I had sought happiness in amusement and sin, and found, not joy, but wretchedness. In my pursuit of happiness I had tried study, the study of languages, science, philosophy and literature, but I did not find happiness in these things. At last I turned to Jesus Christ and believed on Him, and I found not merely happiness, but something better, joy, “inexpressible and glorious joy.” Whatever heaven may be or may not be, I know that on this earth he who really believes on Jesus Christ, who puts himself in Christ’s hands, to be led, and taught, and guided, and strengthened, puts himself in the hands of Jesus Christ for Jesus Christ to do all He will with him, I know that such a person finds “inexpressible and glorious joy.”

Why Those Who Believe in Jesus Christ Have Inexpressible and Glorious Joy

First of all, those who believe on Jesus Christ have “inexpressible and glorious joy” because they know that their sins are all forgiven. It is a wonderful thing to know that your sins are all forgiven, to know that there is not one single, slightest cloud between you and God, to know that no matter how many, or how great your sins may have been, that they are all blotted out; to know that God has put them all behind His back, where no one can ever get at them; to know that God has sunk all your sins in the depths of the sea, from which they can never be raised; that they are all gone. A little boy once asked his mother, “Mother, where are our sins after they are blotted out?” His mother replied, “My boy, where are those figures that you erased from your paper yesterday?” He answered, “I rubbed them out.” Then she asked, “Where are they now?” he replied, “They are nowhere.” “Well,” she said, “that is just the same with your sins when God has blotted them out. They are nowhere. They have ceased to be.”

Oh, friends, what a joy it is to know that there is not one single tiny cloud between you and the Holy God whom we call Father and who rules this universe. Suppose that you had offended the laws of the nation and had been sent to prison on a life sentence, and a pardon were brought to you, do you not think you would be happy? But that is nothing compared with the joy of knowing that your every sin is blotted out. Some years ago Governor Stuart of Pennsylvania determined to pardon one of the prisoners in the Pennsylvania State prison, so he sent for Mr. Moody and said to him, “I have determined to pardon one of the prisoners in our state’s prison, and I want you to go and take the pardon to him. You can preach to the prisoners if you want to while you are doing it.” So Mr. Moody went, carrying the pardon with him, and before he began to preach he said, “I have a pardon for one of you men that the Governor has sent by me.” He did not intend to tell who it was who was pardoned until the sermon was over, but as he looked around on his audience and saw how anxious they all were, how eager they were, how a very agony of suspense was in their faces, Mr. Moody thought, “This will never do, I can’t keep these men in this suspense,” so he said, “I will tell you now who the man is,” and he read his name from the pardon. Do you not think that, that was a glad moment for that one man out of those hundreds of prisoners, a glad moment for the one man who had the Governor’s pardon, and who could walk out of prison a free man? Yes, but that is nothing to knowing that the eternal God has eternally pardoned your sins. Every true Christian knows that, he knows that every one of0 his sins is forgiven. How does he know it? Because the Bible says so in many places.

For example, it says in Acts 13:39, “And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.”so we know it because God says so. But no one but the believer in Jesus Christ knows that his sins are all forgiven. If anyone who is not a believer in Jesus Christ says, “I know my sins are all forgiven,” he says what is not true; for he does not know it, and cannot know it, for it is not a fact; but a Christian knows it because the Word of God says so.

The Christian knows his sins are all forgiven for another reason, that is, because the Holy Spirit bears witness in his own heart to the fact. One day, when the Apostle Peter was preaching to Cornelius, the Roman officer, and to his household, he said, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.”(Acts 10:43), and everyone in his audience believed it. The Spirit of God descended right then and there and filled their hearts with the knowledge of sins forgiven, and they “began to magnify God” with jubilant hearts and jubilant voices. I tell you that was a joyful meeting.

A king, a great king, once wrote one of the greatest songs that ever was written. That song has lasted through the ages. It has been sung and is still being sung by thousands. It has been sung by millions, and though it was written many centuries ago, it is just as sweet today as the day the king wrote it. The man who wrote this song was a great king, the greatest king of his day, he was also one of the greatest generals of his day, one of the greatest generals of any day. He had great armies, the all-conquering armies of the day. He had a magnificent palace. I do not suppose that any other earthly king was ever so beloved as he was. His song was about joy and about happiness. He does not say in that song, “How happy is the man who is a great king,” or, “How happy is the man who is a great general.” What does he say? “Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered” (Psalm 32:1, translated literally from the Hebrew): “There is no happiness like the joy of knowing your sins are all forgiven.” Oh, what a joy thrills the heart when a man knows that his sins are fully, freely, and forever forgiven. That is one reason why he who believes on Jesus Christ is inexpressibly happy, and you can have that inexpressible happiness today. I do not care how black your life may have been in the past; I do not care how far you may have wandered from God; I do not care how old you may have grown in sin; if you take Jesus Christ today for your Savior and your Lord, and believe on Him, your every sin will be blotted out, and it will be your privilege to know it.

In the second place, those who believe on Jesus Christ rejoice with “inexpressible and glorious joy” because they are free from the most grinding and crushing of all forms of slavery, the slavery of sin. There is many a slave in this audience tonight. Some of you are slaves of strong drink. Some of you men and some of you women are slaves of drink. You know you are slaves of drink. Some of you are slaves of drugs. Some of you are slaves of an uncontrollable temper. Some of you are slaves of acts of impurity or impurity of thought. Some of you are slaves of other sins. The grossest, vilest, most degrading slavery in the universe is the slavery of sin. Yes, many of you here tonight are slaves. But the Lord Jesus says in John 8:31, 32, ” If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” He says again in the thirty-sixth verse, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” There is not a slave in this building tonight who cannot have his chains snapped in a moment, yes, in a moment, by the mighty Son of God, if only he will believe on Jesus and trust Him to do it. How many a man and how many a woman I have known who once were slaves of sin in its most degrading and hopeless forms, who now are free.

One of the dearest and most honored and most useful friends I ever had was Sam Hadley of New York City. Sam Hadley was once hopelessly enslaved by sin. Strong drink had utterly mastered him and undermined his character. He had committed 138 forgeries, and was being sought for by the police. One night, after having spent the night before in a New York jail with the “shakes,” in a mission meeting a few blocks away from the jail he cried to Jesus to save him, and Jesus saved him right then and there; and I have often heard him say that never from that night had he ever had the slightest desire for that which had enslaved him more than anything else, intoxicating drink. My, what a happy man he became! All who knew him testified that he had “inexpressible and glorious joy.” I wish you could have looked in Sam Hadley’s face and seen the joy in that redeemed and radiant countenance. But we do not need to call Sam Hadley back from heaven to testify, for there are hundreds of people right here in this building tonight who once were complete slaves, who now are God’s free men and free women, and who could testify to the fact. That is one reason why we are inexpressibly happy, because we are free. How the Southern Blacks rejoiced when they came to understand they were set free. They shouted and sang, “Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!” Why? Because once they were slaves, but now were free. No wonder, then, that we rejoice with “inexpressible and glorious joy” because we know that we are free, and free forever.

In the third place, those who believe on Jesus Christ rejoice with “inexpressible and glorious joy,” because they are delivered from all fear. There is nothing that darkens the human heart more and robs it of all joy and fills it with gloom than fear in some of its many forms.

Those who truly believe on Jesus Christ are saved from all fear. They are delivered from all fear of misfortune; they are delivered from all fear of man; they are delivered from all fear of death; they are delivered from all fear of eternity. Do you know, friends, that to a true believer in Jesus Christ “eternity” is one of the sweetest words in the English language? Oh, how it makes our hearts swell, that word, “eternity.” But “eternity” is not a sweet word to the unsaved. Write these words, “Where will you spend eternity?” on a card and hand it to a man who is not a Christian, and they will make him mad; write these same words, “Where will you spend eternity?” on a card and hand it to a Christian, and they will make him glad. Why is it? Simply because a true believer on Jesus Christ is not afraid of but delights in thoughts of eternity. Why, to him who believes on Jesus Christ eternity is glory.

In the fourth place, he who believes on Jesus Christ rejoices with “inexpressible and glorious joy” because he knows he will live forever. Is not that something to rejoice over? Is it not wonderful? We read in 1 John 2:17, “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. We all know that it is true that “the world passes away.” We certainly ought to know it by this time; but it is equally true that “he who does the will of God lives forever.”

Sometimes as we ride along our beautiful roads we see the stately mansions of our multimillionaires, and one will think, “It must be very pleasant to live there.” Well, I suppose it must be, but think a moment. How long will these people live there? Perhaps the father of the household may live there ten years, possibly twenty years. Then where does he live? Some of the children may live there twenty, thirty, possibly, forty years, then what? The grave. I tell you it is not worth much after all. But the Christian looks on, and on, and on, to a life that has no end, to a life that is eternal. Glory!

In the fifth place, those who truly believe on Jesus Christ rejoice greatly with “inexpressible and glorious joy” because they know they are children of God. It is a great thing to know that you are a child of God. How does the Christian know it? He knows it because God says so in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” A child of God, think of it! Sometimes as I have traveled around the world someone would point out to me some man, and say, “That man is the son of such and such a man, naming some king. Would you not like to be the son of a great king? Just look at that young man. He is the son of a king.” In one country many years ago, when the king business was better than it is today, I was taken up and introduced to the son of one of the reigning monarchs of Europe, and the man who introduced me whispered to me, “He is the son of So-and-So” (naming the king). Well, what of it? He was a fine man in himself, but what if he was the son of a king? I am a son of God, and that is far greater, and every believer in Jesus Christ in this building tonight is a child of God, the child of “the King of kings.” And any one of you here tonight, if you are not already a child of God, can become one in an instant by receiving the Lord Jesus.

In the sixth place, and very closely connected with the last, true believers in Jesus Christ rejoice with “inexpressible and glorious joy” because they are heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. Is that not wonderful? We are so familiar with it we do not stop to take in the meaning of it. One of England’s dukes lay dying. He called his brother to him, the one who would succeed to the title, and said, “Brother, in a few hours now you will be a duke and—and I will be a king.” He was already a child of the King and in a few hours he himself would be a king. I, too, will be a king in a few days. You may say, “It may be many years.” Well, many years are only a few days on the scale of eternity. And, if you really are a believer in Christ Jesus, if you have a real living faith in Him, you, too, will be a king in a few days.

There was never a royal pageant sweeping through the streets of London at any coronation comparable in glory to the glory that awaits you and me just over yonder. “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. (Colossians 3:4). We may be poor today. That does not matter. This life will be over in a moment and the other life begun, and that life is eternal.

In the seventh place, those who truly believe on Jesus Christ, those who throw their hearts wide open to Him, is those who surrender absolutely to Him, rejoice with “inexpressible and glorious joy” because God gives them the Holy Spirit, and there is no other joy in the present life like the joy of the Holy Spirit. One Monday morning, in Chicago, my front doorbell rang. I kept Monday in those days for my rest day, and had a notice above the doorbell, “Mr. Torrey does not see anyone on Monday.” The maid went to the door, and there stood a poor woman. The maid said, “Mr. Torrey does not see anyone on Monday. Did you not see the notice over the doorbell?” She said, “I knew that, but I have got to see him and you just go and tell him a member of his church must see him.” So the maid brought her into the reception room. She was a washerwoman. The maid showed the washerwoman a seat and came upstairs and said to me, “There is a woman downstairs who is a member of your church and says she has got to see you.” So down I went.

As I entered the room she arose and hurried toward me, and said, “Mr. Torrey, I knew you did not see anybody on Monday, but I had to see you. Last night after I went to bed I was filled with the Holy Spirit right there in my bed, and I was so happy I could not sleep all night, and this morning I had to come and tell somebody. I could not afford to give up a day’s work to come around and tell you about it, but I knew I must tell somebody and I did not know anybody I would so like to tell as you. I know you won’t be angry.” Indeed, I was not angry. I was glad she had come, and rejoiced with her, that old washerwoman filled with the Holy Spirit and so full of joy that, poor as she was, she had to give up a day’s work to go and tell somebody she loved all about it.

Before I came to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ I was one of the bluest men who ever lived. I would sit down by the hour and brood. I have never known what the blues mean since the day I really became a Christian, absolutely surrendered to God. I have had troubles. I have had losses. There have been times in my life when I have lost pretty much everything the world holds dear. I know what it is to have a wife and four children, and to lose everything of a financial kind I had in the world, and not know from meal to meal where the next meal was coming from. I was absolutely without resources, living from hand to mouth —from God’s hand to my mouth. I have known what it is to be with a wife and child in a foreign country where they spoke a strange language, and for some reason or other supplies did not come, and I did not know anyone in the city well enough to turn to for help; but I did not worry. I knew it was all in God’s hands, that it would all come out right somehow, and of course it did come out right.

The first time I ever visited London, thirty-nine years ago last September, I was planning to spend two weeks in England, and then start for America. I expected to find money waiting for me I when I reached London, and I reached London with a wife and child, and not a letter and no money. But I said, “The letter and the money will come tomorrow or the next day.” My wife made some purchases, taking it for granted we would have money when the purchases came home; but the money did not come. Day after day passed, and the dresses came home and it was about time for the landlady to come with her board bill. It came to be the very last day before our boat started, and not a penny in sight. I went down to the bank. I did not know a soul in London. There were three or four million people there then—a stranger amid three or four millions of people, money absolutely gone, three thousand miles from friends. I did not worry. I knew the money would come. I did not know how it would come, for the source I expected to receive it from seemed utterly cut off; but yet I was happy. Why? Because I was a child of God; I had the promises of the Bible; I knew they were absolutely certain. I never lost an hour’s sleep. I never worried. I just trusted. It seemed as though I would have to be fed somewhat as Elijah was, but I knew I would be fed. I knew my wife and child would be provided for. The money came, and I sailed on the steamer I expected to sail on, with every penny due paid, and money in my pocket. Friends, a Christian is happy at all times and under all circumstances. We rejoice with “inexpressible and glorious joy” every one of the twenty-four hours of the day that we are awake, and sometimes in our sleep. You, too, can have that joy.

    II.            How to Get This Inexpressible and Glorious Joy

Now arises the question, “What must anyone here tonight who does not have this inexpressible and glorious joy do to get it?” I have really answered that question several times in what I have already said, but to be sure that we all really understand it, let me answer it again, or rather let my text answer it, “Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.” The text tells us that the way to obtain this “inexpressible and glorious joy,” the way to be inexpressibly happy at all times and under all circumstances, is just by believing on the unseen Christ Jesus. What does it mean to believe on Jesus Christ? There is no mystery at all about that. It simply means to put confidence in Jesus Christ to be what He claims to be and what He offers Himself to be to us, to put confidence in Him as the One who died in our place, the One who bore our sins in His own body on the cross, and to trust God to forgive us all our sins because Jesus Christ died in our place; to put confidence in Him as the One who was raised from the dead and who now has “all power in heaven and on earth,” and therefore is able to keep us day by day, and give us victory over sin, and to trust this risen Christ to give us victory over sin day by day; and to put confidence in Him as our absolute Lord and Master, and therefore to surrender our thoughts and wills and lives entirely to His control, believing everything He says, even though every scholar on earth denies it, obeying everything He commands, whatever it may cost; and to put confidence in Him as our Divine Lord, and confess Him as Lord before the world, and worship and adore Him. It is wonderful the joy that comes to him who thus believes on Jesus Christ. But one must really believe on Jesus Christ to have this joy.

Merely being a member of a church is not enough. Merely being baptized is not enough. Merely reading your Bible is not enough. Merely praying is not enough. Merely going to church is not enough. Merely going to the Lord’s table and partaking of the Lord’s Supper is not enough. But if you are a real believer on Jesus Christ, if you have put all your trust in the Lord Jesus as your atoning Savior and your risen Savior, and your risen Lord and Master, and surrendered your thoughts and life to Him utterly as your Lord and Master, and are confessing Him as such before the world, if you have thrown your heart’s door wide open for the Lord Jesus to come in, and live, and rule, and reign there, you will have “inexpressible and glorious joy” at all times and under all circumstances.

All anyone has to do, then, to be inexpressibly happy at all times and under all circumstances, is to believe on Jesus Christ. It does not make any difference what his circumstances may be: he may be rich or he may be poor; he may be highly educated, or he may be ignorant; he may be in good health or he may be a hopeless invalid; he may have been a moral, clean, upright man, or he may have been the vilest of sinners, it matters not. Everyone who believes on the unseen but living Christ will find “inexpressible and glorious joy.” I can bring scores, hundreds, thousands of witnesses to prove that. You cannot bring a single witness on the other side. Col. Robert Ingersoll delighted to say, “It doesn’t make one happy to be a Christian.” How did he know? He never tried it. You can search the earth through and you cannot find me one single man or woman who was ever an out-and-out believer in Jesus Christ, a real wholehearted believer in Jesus Christ, one who had surrendered all to Jesus Christ; I say you cannot find me even one such man or woman who will deny that Jesus Christ gives “inexpressible and glorious joy” to those who thus believe on Him. Here, then, is the way the case stands: Every single competent witness, that is, every witness who has ever tried it, testifies that believing in Jesus Christ does bring “inexpressible and glorious joy,” and these witnesses number thousands, tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands, people from every rank of society and culture, and not one witness on the other side. Is it demonstrated or not? It certainly is.

I take it that I am speaking tonight to reasonable men and women. You desire “inexpressible and glorious joy.” I have told you how to get it. There can be no doubt about it. The evidence is overwhelmingly convincing. There is, then, but one rational thing for you to do, believe on Jesus Christ tonight. Will you do it?

Once a man who was utterly miserable came to me. He was a rarely gifted man, a brilliant scholar, but utterly miserable. If ever I saw a man in hell he was the man. He had attempted suicide at least four times. He had been so near succeeding in his attempts that on two occasions it had been necessary to pump out of him the poison he had taken and thus bring him back to life. I urged him to believe on Jesus Christ. He replied, “I cannot, I have sinned away the Day of Grace.” Day after day I talked with the man and always I had but one message, and that was, “Come to Jesus Christ. Believe on Jesus Christ.” At last, one day the man did come to Jesus Christ. He found “inexpressible and glorious joy.” Sometimes I have seen that man when his face was radiant. Out of hell into heaven by just believing on Jesus Christ! Will you take that same step now?

True facts about the FALSE Dispensationalists

,

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

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

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

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

.

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

.

The religion of the Israelites in the Old Testament was/is Christianity! Jesus, Himself, said so. “You search the Scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal (eonian) life; but they are they which testify of Me. John 5:39 The Old Testament is about Christ – NOT about Israel! Therefore, the religion of the Old Testament is/was – – – Christianity! . The rejection of truth by the leaders of the Israelites had thrown them into such profound darkness that they could no longer even discern truth. Instead, they rejected truth and “believed a lie” and murdered God/Jesus Christ. “Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2 Thessalonians 2:10,11 And the Pharisees, Sadducees and their followers in the Organized Church of the day, committed a cosmic crime by murdering God! Jesus Christ is/was God – in human form. “And they shall call His (Jesus’) name Emmanuel, meaning GOD with us.” (Matthew 1:23) The Old Testament is about Christ – NOT about Israel! Therefore, the religion of the Old Testament is/was – – – Christianity! .

.

WHERE did Judaism come from and WHEN did it begin? The true Christianity of the Israelites was slowly subverted by an underground current of the spiritual ancestors of the Pharisees. This covert corruption began with the worship of the golden calf in the wilderness, then continued with the worship of the pagan god Baal, and then grew to include child sacrifice through the fire to the pagan god Molech. . The growth of this undercurrent of evil among the Israelites can be documented throughout the entire Old Testament. Moses chastised the Israelites when they turned their back on God. Joshua also warned them. During Samuel’s time, the Israelites demanded a king to rule them “as the other nations” had rather than allowing God to be their King. The prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah were later sent to warn the Israelites of their apostasy. . God showed Ezekiel the abominations secretly going on in Israel. (Ezekiel 8:5-17) Then said He (God) unto me (Ezekiel), Son of man, lift up your eyes, and look toward the north. So I lifted up my eyes toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar is the image of jealousy in the entrance.He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, do you see what they do? Even the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, that I should go far off from My sanctuary? But turn again, and you shall see greater abominations.And He brought me to the door of the court (of the temple): and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.Then He said unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged I the wall, behold a door And He said unto me, Go in and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.So I went in and saw: and behold every form of creeping things (insects) and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, carved on the walls round about.And there stood before them seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. (The leaders of Israel were secretly worshipping beasts and creeping things as did the pagan Egyptians.)Then said He unto me, Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, The Lord does not see us; the Lord has forsaken the land.He said also unto me, Turn yet again, and you shall see greater abominations that they do.Then He brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz (A Sumerian fertility god)Then said He unto me, Have you seen this, O son of man? Turn yet again and you shall see greater abominations than these.And He brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house, and behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.Then He said unto me, Have you seen this, O son of man? Is it a trivial thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? For they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke Me to anger . . .

.

Here Ezekiel documents this evil undercurrent that was corrupting the true Christianity of the Israelites. The leaders of the Temple were worshiping idols, beasts and creeping things, the Sumerian fertility god, Tammuz, and they were worshiping the pagan sun god in secret! . When God raised up prophets to rebuke Israel for their waywardness, the prophets were ignored, imprisoned or stoned to death. Eventually, the Israelites were taken captive by Babylon because of their apostasy. . Finally, Jesus, the Messiah, came but this wicked undercurrent had taken hold in such a strong way that the Pharisees and the Sadducees had become so arrogant and self-righteous that they accused Jesus of being a demon-controlled imposter. Jesus rebuked the leaders for bringing false doctrines into the beliefs of the Christian Israelites by promoting traditions that “made the commandments of God of none effect.” “Thus you have made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Matthew 15:6And He (Jesus) said unto them (the Pharisees), Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition. Mark 7:9 . Once they had rejected and killed the Messiah, Jesus Christ, they fell into even deeper darkness. In A.D. 70, Jerusalem and the temple in it were destroyed. Many of the Pharisees ended up in Babylon where these abominable oral “traditions of the elders” were committed to writing and became known as the Babylonian Talmud, the “holiest” book of Judaism. This evil undercurrent that had been smoldering for hundreds of years had now taken over completely, and a new occult religion was born – the religion of Judaism. . THESE were the originators of Judaism – the religion of Anti-Christ! . Then what does the term “Judeo-Christian” mean? .

.

The term “Judeo-Christian” is an oxymoron, the combining of two words defining two diametrically opposing systems of belief. It’s similar to using the term “blackish-white” or cloning a human being combined with a beast. The authors of Judaism were the Pharisees – the murderers of Christ! The values of Judaism are violently opposed to the values of Christianity as will be shown by quotes from their “holiest” book, the Talmud, including the Talmudic quotes that calls for theft from, lying to, and murdering of Christians – by the Jews. The term “Judeo-Christian” is a farce, total nonsense, and an abominable lie. It has been foisted on, and embraced by, almost all who refer to themselves as “Christians.” But how can they call themselves Christians when they are essentially worshiping the followers of Judaism who ridicule, curse and denounce Jesus Christ? .

A WORD TO THE WISE

.

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools Eccl 7:5
.
Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.
.
Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

.
(Prov 27:6 KJV) Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

.
I am surprised, rather shocked as to how many people even Christian ones do think we should be nice, and kind to the bad persons and still.. nothing doing! Especially to the bad TV evangelists, bad preachers who get drunk, commit adultery, steal, and any bad preacher. They in love should be rebuked rather
.
.
All really bad people in love even should be in jail rather.. otherwise they will never learn to do good.. such is real life.. if people do not experience real negative consequences they tend not to change for the better
.

(Prov 24:25 KJV) But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them
.
Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. :12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou thatsleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; :19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

PS:

Now to me it only makes sense that the New Testament was written in Greek. Think of who Paul was: the “Apostle to the Gentiles”. Obviously he was writing to Greek speaking people, so he would write to them in Greek. There are more reasons, but this is an obvious one. I have run into a new reason why some people dispute the notion that Jesus spoke Aramaic. It has to do with the passion among some Muslims for an Aramaic-speaking Jesus. Aramaic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew, Arabic, and similar languages. Only during the time of the Assyrian Empire (8th century BC), Aramaic became used throughout the Ancient Near East as the language of diplomacy not at the time of Jesus here on earth During and before the time of Jesus, there wasn’t just one version of Aramaic being used in Judea and beyond. Even many grave inscriptions around Jerusalem at the time of Jesus are not in Aramaic, not in Hebrew but in Greek.. Muslims falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Aramaic as a support for the truth of Islam.
.
Jews falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Hebrew as a support for the truth of Judaism A few scholars believe that people in Nazareth spoke Hebrew as their primary language. This is possible, but unlikely. Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) So what evidence do we have that Jesus spoke Hebrew? We do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew As one who believes about Jesus all the things orthodox Christians do, it would not impact my faith one jot or tittle if Jesus spoke Hebrew rather than Aramaic, or Greek rather than Hebrew.but the truth is Jesus spoke Greek still..Now, you don’t have to spend the next several years learning ancient languages because English KJV translation of the biblical text is very much reliable it was based on the Tyndale translation of the Greek too..The question of Jesus’ primary language is settled if weknewwhat people in Nazareth in the first decades of the first century A.D. were speaking and the Romans made it clear.. Greek or Latin only.. and we have no evidence for the common use of Hebrew in Nazareth and the surrounding region of Galilee.it is worth nothing that Greek was commonly used in certain strata of Galilean society. This began when Alexander the Great conquered the region in 332 B.C. Under his rule, and under the rule of those who followed him (the Ptolemies and the Seleucids), Greek was the language of government and commerce. The Romans used Latin for official communication, but Greek was the common language of the Empire. In fact, Nazareth was a short walk fromSepphoris, one of the major cities of Galilee, where Greek would have been the everyday language of the marketplace.The earliest manuscripts of the New Testament Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – are written in Greek.
.
Yes there is overwhelming evidence, both historical and linguistic that shows that the New testament texts were never originally written in Hebrew, as some Jews claim but they are known liars.. Show us this original Hebrew transcript of Matthew.. none exists..None.. all is in Greek.. and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek Not one.. The New Testament, however, was written in Greek. This seems strange, since you might think it would be either Hebrew or Aramaic. However, Greek was the language of scholarship during the years of the composition of the New Testament from 50 to 100 AD. The fact is that many Jews could not even read Hebrew anymore, and this disturbed the Jewish leaders a lot! So, around 300 BC a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Greek was undertaken, and it was completed around 200 BC.
.
Gradually this Greek translation of the Old Testament, called the Septuagint, was widely accepted and was even used in many synagogues. It also became a wonderful missionary tool for the early Christians, for now the Greeks could read God’s Word in their own tongue. So again the New Testament authors wrote in Greek. They did not, however, use really high-class or classical Greek, but a very common and everyday type of Greek. For many years some scholars ridiculed the Greek of the New Testament because many of its words were strange to those who read the writings of the great Greek classical authors such as Plato and Aristotle. But later many records were uncovered of ordinary people, and amazingly there were the same common terms used in everyday speech! The ridicule dried up accordingly. The prominent first century Roman historian Josephus was a Jew himself who wrote in Greek.. it should be understood that there is a long history of “Hellenism” (Greek culture/influence) among the Jewish people, both in ancient Alexandria as well as in the Promised Land itself.Ossuariesdating from the Second Temple period indicate Greek artwork and Greek versions of Hebrew names In Biblical Archaeological Review , Pieter W. Van Der Horst writes, “One of the most surprising facts about funerary inscriptions [extant from ancient Palestine dating from 300 B.C. to 500 A.D] is that most of them are in Greek – approximately 70 percent; about 12 percent are in Latin; and only 18 percent are in Hebrew or Aramaic.” Furthermore, since the time of Alexander the Great (c. 330 B.C), many of the Jewish High Priests had become Hellenists ; which led to the rejection of the Temple by theEsseneCommunity and eventually to the later Maccabean revolts.
.
Even the Dead Sea Scrolls include Greek texts among the Hebrew and Aramaic. ; So it’s clear that Hellenistic culture and Greek language were pervasive influences in Israel both before, during, and after the time when Jesus lived in ancient Israel and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek all of the ancient textual evidence for the New Testament is in Koine Greek, and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek.
.
The New Testament is by far the best-attested (and best preserved) literature of antiquity, with manuscript evidence dating back to the first century. ; For example, the Magdalen Fragments are written in a style of Koine Greek that was current in the 1st Century A.D. during the very lives of the apostles. Indeed, ancient papyrus expertCarstenThiedeand other scholars regard certain fragments from the Gospel of Matthew to be an eyewitness account. We have some anecdotal evidence of a gospel that underlies the others gospel accounts, but it is clear — both from history and from the textual evidence we have – that the Holy Spirit chose to use Koine (i.e., “common”) Greek as the language to reach out to the world. This is true, incidentally, of the Torah andNakh, which were also translated into Koine Greek (i.e., the Septuagint, or LXX). Many of the oldest Biblical fragments among the Dead Sea Scrolls correspond more closely with the LXX than with the (later) Masoretic text, and indeed we have evidence of Koine Greek manuscripts that were discovered in the Qumran caves themselves…
.
Now when Jesus went into the synagogue and was handed the scroll of Isaiahthat thatscroll was written in Greek?and the the New Testament Gospels do include non-Greek words in the text (spelled with Greek letters). And some of these words are Aramaic ?So, while Jesus’ use of them may reflect his Aramaic speech, we can’t even be 100% sure of this. And we do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew ..
.
Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) The so-called “biblical case” for the Hebrew speaking Jesus rests mainly on one verse in, not in the Gospels, but in Acts of the Apostles. You absurdilycannot make a major statement with one fact, one verse.. when you have a whole Greek New testament.. one cannot use this as proof that he always spoke Hebrew, or mainly spoke Hebrew, or even spoke Hebrew in any other circumstance. In no other place does the New Testament tell us that Jesus spoke Hebrew. The fact that the Gospels are written in Greek shows that most of the earliest Christians, including some who followed Jesus during his earthly ministry, knew Greek and used it often, perhaps as their first language. Many Jewish writings from the era of Jesus were written in Greek, including works such as 2 Maccabees and 1 Esdras. Other Hebrew writings were being translated into Greek in Jerusalem (the book of Esther, for example, in 114 B.C.). Speaking of Jerusalem, scholars have found some ninety Greek inscriptions onossuaries(boxes for bones) that date to around the time of Jesus and were found in or around Jerusalem.
.
Ever since Alexander the Great conquered Judea in 332 B.C., Greek had been the language of government and, increasingly, commerce and scholarship. Though Aramaic continued to be spoken by many, Greek grew in its popularity and influence. In the time of Jesus, well-educated Jews, mainly those of the upper classes, would have known and used Greek. So would those who were involved in trade or government Get wise and learn the truth. Jesus was not handed the dead sea scrolls.. he read from the Greek Scroll Bible. The presence and pervasiveness of Greek in Judea is demonstrated by a discovery in theNahalHever region of the Judean Desert near the Dead Sea. In a cave, a scroll was found that contains substantial portions of the minor prophets in Greek. The so-calledNahalHever Minor Prophets Scroll, dated around the time of Jesus, shows the influence and popularity of Greek, even among highly religious Jew..
.
In Matthew 8:5-13, for example, Jesus entered into dialogue with a Roman centurion. The centurion almost certainly spoke in Greek. And, as Matthew tells the story, he and Jesus spoke directly, without a translator. The same could be said about Jesus’ conversation with Pontius Pilate prior to his crucifixion (Matthew 27:11-14; John 18:33-38). If Jesus knew enough Greek to converse with a Roman centurion and a Roman governor, where did he learn it? at Home and in school.. Jesus’ hometown was a short walk fromSepphoris, which was a major city and one in which Greek was spoken.
.
Christianity is a new Religion that is not an updated Judaism, or a revised Judaism.. Most Messianic Jews too now are also still going to hell.. and they are firstly not willing to give up all to follow Jesus . For some Jesus must have spoken Hebrew to some people, otherwise somehow his mission as the Messiah would have been deficient. Some were worried that if Jesus spoke Greek he did not care for the Jews basically.. No one even knows what the Jewish Culture was like at the time of Jesus since the Romans burned all the Jewish books and Library and none exist today thus.. People who are hung up on a Jewish scripture still need the Holy Spirit to explain it anyway and most people do not have him, Jews especially.. .Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify your perversions of the reality.. There is no existing evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been . Why are they falsely so argumentative and hung up on a Hebrew Jesus? when most of the Jews have rejected him anyway and are mostly going to hell..
.
Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify your perversions of the reality.. There is no existing evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been and anyone has yet had failed to prove it too.. The fact that Jesus may have spoken Greek may help us to think differently about him and his ministry. For many years it was common to envision Jesus as growing up in the countryside of Galilee, far removed from multi-cultural hodge-podge of the Roman Empire. But this idealized view of the rustic Jesus is far from the truth. Though he grew up in a small town, he was not at all cut off from the broader Roman world. In fact Jesus grew up with ample exposure to Greco-Roman language, culture, commerce, politics, religion, and philosophy. When he eventually entered Jerusalem to confront the Roman and Jewish authorities there – and to give his life in the process – Jesus was no naive country bumpkin making his first trip to the big city. Rather he was well aware of powers and perils he faced, and he faced these knowing, as he ultimately said to Pontius Pilate (in Greek, I believe), “My kingdom is not from this world” (John 18:36). Given the Holy Spirit, not just excellence of English translations of the Bible by translators who have mastered all of the relevant languages, it’s not necessary for the ordinary Christian to learn Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic in order to understand the teaching of Jesus .and his teachings.. In fact too many Hebrew , Aramaic and Greek speaking persons are still very ungodly persons
