True facts about the FALSE Dispensationalists

,

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.

.
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
.
Revelation 2 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place

2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, :18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord
.
(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.
.
(Luke 17:3 KJV) Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

.
(Titus 1:13 KJV) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

(Titus 2:15 KJV) These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
.
(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
.
(1 Chr 12:17 KJV) And David went out to meet them, and answered and said unto them, If ye be come peaceably unto me to help me, mine heart shall be knit unto you: but if ye be come to betray me to mine enemies, seeing there is no wrong in mine hands, the God of our fathers look thereon, and rebuke it.
.
(Isa 30:17 KJV) One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign onan hill.
.
“Who is a liar but he thatdenieththat Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, thatdenieththe Father and the Son.” – I John 2:22
.
Zionism and Judaism is still from the pits of hell, Judaism it is an obsolete religion replaced by Christianity
.
(Psa76:6 KJV) At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
.
(Psa80:16 KJV) It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
.
(Psa104:7 KJV) At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

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

In the New Testament the emphasis is now solely on the heavenly Jerusalem..

In the New Testament the emphasis is now undeniably solely on the heavenly Jerusalem not the past, present one
.
Colossians 3:2  Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
..

2 Peter 3

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

Revelation 3

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Revelation 21

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

.
 AS PER THE OLD TESTAMENT “Zion”- (Hebrew: ציון‎), also transliterated Sion, Tzion or Tsion, is a place name often used as a synonym for THE CITY OF Jerusalem. 
.
Zion  is commonly referred to a specific mountain near Jerusalem (Mount Zion), on which stood a Jebusite fortress of the same name that was conquered by David and was named the City of David.   The term Tzion came to designate the area of Jerusalem where the fortress stood, and later became a metonym for Solomon‘s Temple in Jerusalem, the city of Jerusalem and generally, for the Jews the World to Come.
.
The word is first found in Samuel II, 5:7 dating to c.630–540 BCE 
Zion is the Hebrew name for the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and was the seat of the first and second Holy Temple.
.
It is the most holy place in the world for Jews, AND MUSLIMS NEXT TOO seen as the connection between God and humanity.
.
Observant Jews still falsely recite the Amidah three times a day facing Zion in Jerusalem,  falsely praying for the rebuilding of the Holy Temple, the restoration of the Temple service, the redemption of the world, and for the coming of the false anitchrist  Messiah
.
The form Tzion (Hebrew: ציון‎; Tiberian vocalization: Ṣiyyôn) appears 108 times in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible),
.
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Tzion.” (Psalms 137:1) The form Tzion (Hebrew: ציון‎; Tiberian vocalization: Ṣiyyôn) appears 108 times in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible), 
.
Zechariah 9:9   Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from river even to the ends of the earth.11 As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
12    Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;13 When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man.14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the LORD GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.15 The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, and as the corners of the altar.16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.17 For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids.

.

Mentioned 26 times in the Tanakh, the Biblical phrase “Daughter of Tzion” (Hebrew “bat Tzion”) is a also reference to Mount Moriah (the Temple Mount) in Jerusalem.

.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of  Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem ! Behold, your King is coming to you; he is just and endowed with salvation, humble, and mounted on a donkey, even on a colt , the foal of a donkey.

.

The Daughter of Tzion. The daughter of Zion in the old Testament is also  clearly the  bad religious  advisors.. as mentioned in the Song of Solomon.

.

Despite the   rebellion of the daughter of Zion even against her God, He God  promises to restore her and present her with a Deliverer, the King in the form of Jesus Christ. 

.

Matthew 21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
.
John 12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.
.
Romans 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
.
Romans 11 :26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
.
In the New Testament the Daughter of Zion is the bride of Christ, also known as the Church, according to the writer of the book of Hebrews.  Hebrews12:2 1 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) 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.
.

In the New Testament the Zion emphasis is now solely on the heavenly Jerusalem.. not the old corrupted  Jerusalem

.
Hebrews 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
.
Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
.
Hebrews 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,
.
Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
.
Rev 14: 1    And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.
.
The Earthly Zionism today is rightfully  typically thought of as man’s idea, a political movement, a religious ideology, a human effort based on the Jewish intellect, power, and influence.
.
Most Jews still even some Christian people take isolated verse and twist them to suit what they want others to believe still especially the false Dispensationalists
.

(Isa 30:1 KJV) Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

.

Jerusalem also was the birthplace of the Christian Church: Jesus had instructed His disciples to wait in the city until they received the Holy Spirit, which was sent to them on the Day of Pentecost, some 50 days after they had witnessed the betrayal and death of their leader.

.

Eventually the mission which the 12 apostles undertook carried them beyond Jerusalem, but the city always served as a focal point for the early Church. They returned there for a key conference, as recorded in the book of Acts, and it was to Jerusalem that the apostle Paul traveled with famine relief collected in Asia Minor. Acts also records that Paul was in Jerusalem when he was arrested and began his journey to appeal to Caesar in Rome.

.

The destruction of the holy city Jerusalem  by Roman forces in 70 C.E. brought a fundamental change  forever  however.

.

The Church itself had beforehand fled the city before its destruction, relocating to a place east of the Jordan River called Pella.

.

After the Roman war, Jerusalem would never be quite the same again. The temple, the focus of the Jewish religion, and all if it’s records  had been destroyed.

.

The true worship of God, Jesus had said, was not to be limited to an edifice such as the temple. True worship was to be in a temple, or in Jerusalem  but “in spirit and truth” (John 4: 21–24). While the temple stood, it had served as a house of prayer for all people but not as a Christian holy place. There were no holy places for the Christian—no churches, no temples, no basilicas. Instead, Christianity had to be lived on a daily basis, irrespective of where a person was.

The body and mind of the individual were to be the holy space. The individual was now the true temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16). While the temple stood, it had served as a house of prayer for all people but not as a Christian holy place.

.

There were, are no holy places for the Christian—no churches, no temples, no basilicas. Instead, Christianity had to be lived on a daily basis, irrespective of where a person was. The body and mind of the individual were to be the holy space. The individual was now the true temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16). 

As in the New Testament the emphasis is now solely on the heavenly Jerusalem.. 

.

Romans 4:13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 

.

Note this the promises are  not to a Genetic  seed of Jews or of Abraham only   even..  Galatians 3:16 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.  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob,…. Not over the Jews, the posterity of Jacob, in a literal sense; but over the whole Israel of God, consisting of true Jews – the true Israel of God- the church of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit filled Christians he Jesus Christ  shall reign in the hearts of his Christian  people here unto the end of the world; and with his the Holy Spirit filled Christians  a thousand years in the new heavens and new earth; and with them to all eternity, in the ultimate glory.

.

Jesus had said His Kingdom is not off this World  and of his kingdom there shall be no end.  

.

Yes Jesus Christ  he will rule over all the Christians in Heaven,  all the unsaved Jews are in Hell. Note all of the unsaved Jews are in Hell.. You are either a Jew or a Christian too you cannot be both,,“

.

“And to him was given dominion and glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed” (Dan 7:14).   This is the glorious Kingdom that was prophesied.  At last it has come.  The King of this everlasting and universal Kingdom of heavenly peace on earth is the son of Mary, who is the only Son of God, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit (Lk 1:35; Mt 1:18,20).  This King will reign forever, and will be called “Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Is 9:6 KJV).  And “Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever” (Is 9:7 KJV).

.

We Christians do now live in this Kingdom of universal peace if we live in Jesus Christ.  He brings heavenly peace to our hearts.  He remakes us.  He rejuvenates the human race, making it a new creation (2 Cor 5:17; Gal 6:15; Rev 21:5).  He makes us new men (Eph 4:22-24) by forgiving our sins and filling us with the splendor of his own righteousness.  He clothes us with glory as with a robe of righteousness (Is 61:10).  We are clothed with Jesus Christ himself (Gal 3:27; Rom 13:14) through our faith in him.

.

This is the sole everlasting Kingdom that we now celebrate in the birth of Christ.  He has a throne that is established forever, in a Kingdom of heavenly peace over the whole earth, in which we can now live through our faith in him.  It is a Kingdom in which he cleanses us and rejoices us, renews us, and fills us with his own peace.

.

Christ is the promised descendent, prefigured by Solomon.  He is an everlasting King, not just an everlasting dynasty.  Thus the fulfillment is greater than the prophecy that David would have an everlasting dynasty and an everlasting throne. 

.

In Jesus Christ, the dynasty and throne of David are everlasting; and Christ fulfills the prophecy of the psalmist, who prophesied, “I will establish your descendents forever, and build your throne for all generations” (Ps 88:4).  And “I will establish his line forever and his throne as the days of the heavens” (Ps 88:29).  In Jesus Christ this is fulfilled.

.

I am aware of the fact the dispensationalists Rev John Darby and Cyrus Scofield have led many saints into such a mess, that it’s become the tool for a Brethren cult too!

.

Some persons do preach, write out of their guilty, to compensate for the related emptiness they are feeling, while others write because they are ambitious, they write out of seeking fame, their seeking a place of prominence.. many are just lead by the devil too.

.

Too many persons here too are wrongfully these days adding or taking away from the word of God, the Bible and that is why there is so much disputes, different contradictory wrings in the Churches also these days.. of course this happens cause there will be always the wolves now amongst us as well, those followers of the devil who want to destroy the word of God too. It is not a coincident that too many Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the HOLY SPIRIT today as well, his Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO.

.

Dispensationalism is basically false and it is the method of interpreting the scriptures that sees two distinct peoples of God, with two distinct destinies of Israel and the Church. It also unacceptably tries falsely to explain away the relevance of the gifts of the holy spirit today. It is not a coincident that too many Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the   HOLY SPIRIT today as well, HIS Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO.

.

Note: This list represents a wide segment of popular Dispensational teachings; however, Dispensationalism  is by no means a monolithic entity, and many self-professed Dispensationalists, particularly in the Progressive school, would not adhere to many of its points.

.

 Dispensationalism is basically the method of interpreting the scriptures that sees two distinct peoples of God, with two distinct destinies  Israel and the Church. Some of the false  tenets that all or most contemporary mainstream Dispensationalists would falsely hold to do include the following:

1.The Church is not the continuation of God’s Old Testament people, but a distinct body born on the Day of Pentecost.

2.The Church is never equated with Israel in the New Testament, and Christians are not Jews, true Israel, etc.

3.The prophecies made to Israel in the Old Testament are not being fulfilled in the Church, nor will they ever be.

4.The Church does not participate in the New Covenant prophesied in the Old Testament; it is for ethnic Israel, and will be established in a future millennial kingdom.

5.The Old Testament saints were saved by faith alone, on the basis of the Calvary-work of Christ alone; however, the object of their faith was not Christ, but rather the revelation peculiar to their dispensation.

6.The Old Testament saints did not know of the coming Church Age, of the resurrection of Christ, or basically, of what we today call the gospel.

7.When Jesus came to earth, he offered the Jews a physical kingdom, but they rejected him.

8.When Jesus proclaimed the gospel of the Kingdom, it was the news about how ethnic Jews might enter and find rewards in this physical kingdom, and is to be distinguished from the gospel as defined in I Corinthians 15:3-4, which the apostles later proclaimed to the church.

9.After the Jews rejected Jesus’ kingdom offer, he inaugurated a parenthetical ‘Church Age’, which will be concluded immediately before God again takes up his dealings with his national people, ethnic Israel.

10.During the ‘Church Age,’ Jesus is not reigning from the throne of David; he is engaged instead in his priestly work, and his kingly work will take place in the future millennial kingdom.

11.At some unspecified but imminent time, Jesus will return (but not all the way to earth, just to the air) and rapture his Church, also called his Bride; for the following seven years, they will feast with him at the marriage supper of the Lamb; meanwhile, on earth, he will begin to deal with his national people, ethnic Israel, again, calling them to himself and preserving them in the midst of seven years of great tribulation; at the midpoint of which, the Antichrist will set himself up as god in the rebuilt Jewish temple, and demand worship from the world.

12.After these seven years, Christ will return, this time all the way to earth. He will defeat the forces of evil, bind Satan and cast him into a pit, and inaugurate the physical Jewish Kingdom that he had offered during his life on earth. The Jews who survived the tribulation will populate the earth during this blessed golden era, and the Christians will reign spiritually, in glorified bodies.

13.After these thousand years, Satan will be released and will gather an army from the offspring of the Jews who survived the tribulation. He will be finally defeated and cast into hell. At this time, the wicked dead will be resurrected and judged, whereas the righteous dead had already been resurrected one-thousand-seven years previously, at the rapture. Christ will then usher in the New Heavens and New Earth, and the destinies of all mankind will be finalized. Dispensationalists are divided as to whether or not there will remain a distinction between Christians and Jews in the New Earth.

.”

The real New Testament Church is the real continuation of   Abraham’s seed. and not the Jews…

.

Act 15:12-17 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them. And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me: Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

.

Rom 9:23-26 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

.

Rom 11:11-32 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?… For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. [Whether or not one sees a future for ethnic Israel in this passage is beside the point: in any case, there is only one people of God, represented by the one olive tree. Believing Gentiles have been grafted into this one tree, and unbelieving Jews broken off; but when they are grafted back in, it will be the same tree into which the Gentiles were grafted, God’s people, true Israel.]

Gal 3:7-8 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

.

Gal 3:13-14 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

.

Eph 2:11-22 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

.

Eph 3:5-6 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

.

Hence, New Testament believers are called the true Jews, Abraham’s seed, etc.

.

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

.

Rom 4:11-12 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

.

Rom 9:6-8 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

.

Gal 3:6-7 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

.

Gal 3:26-29 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

.

Gal 4:21-31 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband. Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

.

Phi 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

.

Heb 12:22-24 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, 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, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

.

1Pe 2:9-12 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

Some have falsely said that these Jewish terms are applied to the Church by way of analogy, not identification. However, when Peter goes on to speak of these ethnic Gentiles in contrast with the  “Gentiles “he makes it clear that he actually is intending to refer to them as Jews.

.

Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

.

Of great significance that John Hagee and his scantly veiled two-covenant theology has overlooked in pursuit of a personal political agenda (in the name of Christianity) called “Christian Zionism ” and what appears to be a strong bid to hijack Biblical Christianity and replace it with Judaism are the powerful words and teachings of Paul written in Romans Chapter 9 and Galatians Chapter 4 and 5

.

In God’s schema of things there are two masters in the Great Controversy–Christ and Satan. Each has a kingdom. Christ’s Kingdom  is represented by the city now called the New Jerusalem.

.

Satan’s kingdom is the Synagogue of Satan, and this is represented by the city earthly Zion,  Jerusalem, called Babylon or confusion.

.

Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

.

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

.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

.

Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

.

Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

.

Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

.

“The goal of the leftist Jewish   elite is to establish a Universal dictatorial Illuministic Communism and to enslave all of mankind under the thumb of a Jewish master race led by a world messiah who is to rule from Jerusalem. 

.

An essential element in this grandiose  plot to blow up and destroy Islam’s golden-domed monument now sitting on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, despised by Orthodox Jewish rabbis and the secularist Masonic Illuminists alike.

.

The Jews are beset with an unbridled ambition—a consuming desire to acquire global power and establish once and for all their long-delayed Zionist Kingdom on planet earth. The religion of Judaism, based on the Babylonian Talmud, and the Jewish Cabala (or, Kabala), an alchemical system of magic and deviltry, is despicable” 

.

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.

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/

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 8 :32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me

Will you even make it to heaven?

H44-10454564

Many Will Seek to Enter Heaven, But Few Will Enter? Do I Have to Give  Up all of My Sins to be Saved? Don’t  Christians Have a License to commit some  Sins? Does God really  Not Approve of Any Believer Who habitually Sins?
 .
Deceived, many are being deceived and are deceived.. Mankind has a sinful tendency to rationalize evil into good. And there are many more “professing” Christians than true Christians
.
Did you know that not all “Christians” are going to heaven?  No, it’s true.  Not everyone who professes to be a Christian is actually going to be counted among those who will spend eternity in paradise with God the Father.  I’m not the one who came up with this idea; this idea originated with Jesus Christ. All Christians should be educating themselves daily with God’s Word, so that they will be further influenced by its miraculous power.
.

We are all bad and sinful and a disgrace in God’s eyes. He is Holy and pure and He isn’t going to contaminate heaven by allowing sin enter it. Sadly, many or most  people even in the churches still  still do  have churchianity without Christianity. False religion is everywhere these days. 1st John 4:1 teaches for believers to try (test) the spirits, to see whether they are of God or not

.

The Bible now still also instructs us as believers to judge everyone, even all professing Christians  with “righteous judgment” (John 7:24). We are also clearly now  to separate from carnal believers who indulge in sinful living, and from those who attempt to justify sin (1st Corinthians 5:11). Romans 16:17 reads, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” Biblically, we are also still supposed to expose all of these false persons, false teacher,s  false prophets and to contend for the original Christian faith. Certainly, we are not wrong to question the actual future salvation of those who falsely do live contrary to the Scriptures. In 2nd Corinthians 13:5 the Apostle Paul questioned the salvation of certain members of the church at Corinth. 

.

Jesus foretold of the time when the saved and the  unsaved will murder the  real Christians, thinking they are doing God a favor (John 16:2). We are living in the still  apostate times, when some pastors are falsely saying it’s ok to be gay or to get divorced..Most churches are filled mostly with unsaved religious hypocrites who even still do know not the Lord Jesus Christ. They’ve have joined churches and many claim to have prayed the salvation prayer; but they are as lost as the Devil himself.  A real Repentance is supposed to bring forth evidence of a personally changed life But they still they’ve never made commitments to serve God,  not just seen their need come to God as a dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinner in need of the Savior, Jesus Christ, admit their need of calling  upon the name of Jesus, the Lord Christ, to forgive their sins. Yes  they still have failed to die to self and life filly, solely for the Lord Jesus Christ in reality.
.
Luke 13:23-24 and 28, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able … There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.”

Matthew 7:22-23“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? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

.

 Many who claim the name of Christ show little or no evidence of salvation by the way they live their lives. Often it is almost impossible to distinguish Christians from non Christians. Many who say they are saved are outwardly sinners showing little or no concern for spiritual things. For them Christianity is like putting on or taking off a piece of clothing. They put on their Christian appearance when it suits them, but leave it off most time. The question that naturally arises is: “Are all who call themselves Christians now even truly saved are going to heaven when they die, are they not guaranteed eternal security?” The answer is  “No” because God is not being mocked,. Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man swath, that shall he also reap.

.

Jesus addressed this matter saying, “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. 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? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:21-23).  “You that still do iniquity”  and  there is the root cause..

.

Do ask Him now as to what groups of religious people today that are doing wonderful things in Jesus’ name, and are speaking in Jesus’ name; but are still lost and on their way to Hell? Namely: is it the  Lutherans, Catholics, Church of Christ, Messianic Jews, Greek Orthodox, United Church of Christ, Russian Orthodox,   Episcopal, Presbyterians,  Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Baptists,  Plymouth Brethren and many more. What not just the Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Scientology, Christian Science, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Unitarian Universalist, Judaism Moonies, New Agers?

.

.

Or maybe  the most deadliest of all these groups are those very loud professing Christians, the really big talkers,  who even had  propagated to all  even  the need  of accepting the Lordship of Jesus Christ Salvation, who even go around saying, “Lord, Lord,” but they themselves now have never practiced what they had preached to others. Jesus plainly tells us why they were not allowed into Heaven, and if you have ears to hear and eyes to see, then please listen to Him and the holy Scriptures.  These sincere  PEOPLE rather still going to  Hell will be shocked and dumbfounded when the Lord rejected them and why? They had spent their lives teaching in Jesus’ name and doing many charitable deeds in Jesus’ name but so what? How could this really then happen to them? What went wrong? They were so honest and sincere too and now they’re are being told they cannot enter into Heaven after all that? Notice this they do not listened to God too well, they never have as  even now evidenced by the fact that Despite it is God who is talking they are even falsely trying to blame the Lord as being in error, so they will be even for this  cast into the Lake of Fire forever..

.

Matthew 7:21, “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.”

.

John 3:19-21, And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

.

2 Corinthians 5:17, says “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

.

The genuine child of God is no longer the sinner that he was before he was truly saved. He is now next made different  because he has been changed, by being  born again, indwelled by the Holy Spirit and he lives  the new spiritual nature. Clearly no one can honestly say that the Bible supports the idea of a person being saved and still remain as they once even were before. Nowhere does the Bible teach that a child of God remains comfortably living their past  worldly life of sin that now falsely  ignores all of the presence of the Lord and his claims on their lives. The truth that Jesus himself now teaches is falsely, conveniently ignored by too many. This new Christian life is one of “walking in the light” which means living a life that recognizes the destructiveness of sin. It means the new Christian wants to bring honor and glory to Christ by living a life now that is pleasing to God.  “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.” (Matthew 6:24)  God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” (Romans 6:2)   “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit” (Romans 8:5). “. . . the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be” (Romans 8:7). “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” (Romans 3:18) “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? (Romans 6:16) “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble” (James 2:19). “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8).   If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9).  “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13) “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4). “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.” (Romans 6:6-7)  “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:18-20). “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16)

.

The Bible even also clearly warns all believers in Hebrews 12:5 that God WILL chastise even His own children.  So no one is going to get away with anything. “But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons” (Hebrews 12:8). “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world” (1 Corinthians 11:29-32). Romans 12:19 also clearly teaches that God will “repay” (Greek: punish) those who defraud and hurt others. This includes believers (2nd Corinthians 5:10). 1st Thessalonians 4:6 is a warning even to all believers not to defraud each other because God will “avenge.”; So don’t think that any Christians have permission to continue sin. On the contrary, all believers, especially Pastors or Evangelists now, they  will be held more accountable to God if they are deliberately sinning in the knowledge of the truth. They have been enlightened. They know better. No one has God’s permission to live in unrepentant sin; so let them depart from all iniquity now.

.

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and no sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave then reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live: For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, the we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yietheth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby” (Hebrews 12:1-12).

.

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16)

.

” And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God be merciful to me a sinner’ (Luke 8:13).”

.

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

.

“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)

.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Roman 6:23)

Have you really died to self? and where does it show?

Ramsau, Bavaria 177
Luke 9:23 says, “Take up his cross daily”;
“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, who is in heaven” (Matt. 7:21).;
Matthew 16:24-27 “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”;
Matthew 10:37-39–“He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”
2. Mark 10:21–“Jesus, beholding him [the rich young ruler], loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest; go thy way, sell whatever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow me.”
3. Luke 14:25-27–“There went great multitudes with him [Christ]; and he turned, and said unto them, If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.”
4. John 12:24-25–Jesus said, “Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.”
Matthew 16:24-27 is an oft-repeated principle. Even the apostle Paul said, “We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22). You will never understand what it means to be a disciple of Christ until you grasp the principle of winning by losing.;
Colossians 3:9-10 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.;
Romans 6:1-23 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.;
Habakkuk 2:18 What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols?
Gatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Matthew 8:20 Jesus tells a would-be disciple that “foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man has not where to lay his head.” How really different is this from the lifestyle of the rich and famous TV preachers, evangelists..
THE REALITY IS THAT TOO MANY CHRISTIANS ARE STILL LIVING IN THE KINGDOM OF SELF, HAVE NOT DIED TO SELF.. THEY ARE STILL NARCISSUS. There is still the false current trend in much of contemporary Christianity toward self-centered consumption.
“ Common Traits of the self-centered life:
A secret spirit of pride – an exalted feeling because of our success, position, training, appearance, natural gifts or abilities; an important, independent spirit; stiffness and preciseness.
Carnal fear – being afraid of what others may think of us; shrinking from our duty (especially by those of wealth or position); reasoning around our cross; fearfulness that someone will offend and drive away some prominent person; compromising our principles to stay on someone’s good side.
A jealous disposition – a secret spirit of envy; an unpleasant sensation when another is prosperous or successful; a disposition to speak of the faults and failings of those more talented and appreciated than ourselves, instead of their gifts and virtues, in order to make ourselves look better, more discerning, or sophisticated.
Love of human praise – a secret desire to be noticed or given credit; enjoyment of praise or flattery; feeling badly when we weren’t thanked; drawing attention to ourselves and our accomplishments in conversation; liking to be at the head of things.
 
A dishonest, deceitful disposition – evading the truth; covering up our real faults; leaving a better impression of ourselves than is strictly true; false humility; exaggeration; straining the truth.
Anger or impatience – (which we justify by calling it righteous indignation or nervousness); a touchy, sensitive spirit; resentment or retaliation when disapproved of or contradicted; a desire to throw sharp, heated, or barbed comments; becoming provoked over people, animals, or objects that will not co-operate with our desires; losing our temper when we’ve run out of arguments, so that our opponent will back off and we’ll still win; unexpressed stirrings of envy, jealousy, revenge, bitterness, or anger.
Self-will – a stubborn, unteachable spirit; an arguing, talkative spirit; harsh, sarcastic expressions; an unyielding, headstrong disposition; a driving, commanding spirit; criticizing and picking flaws when set aside and not noticed; a peevish, fretful spirit; loving to be coaxed and humoured; becoming miffed when we cannot have our own way, when others do better than us, when taken to task by someone in authority, when not put first, when not appreciated, or when others are advanced over us; sulking when slighted, imposed upon, insulted.
Stinginess – falling out with others over trifles; giving as little as possible; taking the best and leaving the rest for others; seeking the easiest tasks; love of money; love of ease.
Self-justification – desiring always to be right, and finding it painful to be proven wrong; feeling sore at losing a contest, game, argument, or election; being embarrassed when others point out our mistakes; being unable to say “I was wrong, please forgive me”; immediately blaming another when we are accused; excusing our own erroneous actions while magnifying the faults of others; rationalizing our failures by pointing to unfavourable circumstances when it was really our fault; believing that no-one can do it as well as we can; desiring the last word.”
Coming to Jesus Christ to get the material things is  prostitution. It is true that when you come to Christ you receive and continue to receive blessings from Him. But there must be a cross before a crown, suffering before glory, and sacrifice before reward. That is what our Lord teaches in Matthew 16:24-27. We are called to win by losing all, note all!.
Many people falsely still today wish to identify themselves with Christianity only for what they can get out of it for themselves and not what they can contribute to it. They view Jesus as a utilitarian genie, fulfilling every whim.. lusts, false desires of theirs.  So many here also do day say that Jesus wants to make them firstly  healthy, wealthy, prosperous and happy. If you are not all those things, then it is falsely  supposed that they  don’t have enough faith to appropriate what’s theirs. They here falsely claim Christianity is designed so you can get everything you speak, everything you do need and want.. They falsely do promote the get without the give, and the free gain without the pain. They will even char, lies, steal to get it and falsely justify. Self-esteem promoters tell us Jesus came to boost our self-image. But they have fallen victim to narcissism–the pervasive self-love of contemporary society.;
In Matthew 8:; verse 21 Jesus tells the disciples He would have to go to Jerusalem and be killed. The disciples never listened to the rest of what Jesus said after that; they heard only the shocking prophecy of His death. Verses 22-23 say, “Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord; this shall not be unto thee. But [Jesus] turned and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan.” Jesus recognized the real attacker. Peter was merely a tool: Satan had been trying to divert Christ from the cross ever since he first tempted Him in the wilderness (Matt. 4:1-11).; How different is this the Peter,  Judas as well reaction  today of  the many who falsely justify the prosperity Gospel? Not at all.. In verse 23 Christ categorizes Peter’s attitude: “Thou art an offense unto me; for thou savorest not the things that are of God, but those that are of men.” Peter offended Christ because he was following a worldly train of thought. Men of the world want gain without pain, a crown without the cross, glory without suffering, and a reward without sacrifice. But according to God the opposite is true. Whether incarnate in the Son or alive in the hearts of His people, God cannot exist in the midst of an anti-God society without generating some hostility. That’s why 2 Timothy 3:12 says, “All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” Peter still did not understand that holiness in the midst of an unholy society will always still create a negative reaction.;
Matthew 16:24 says, “Let him deny himself.” The Greek word translated “deny” means “to disown.” Verse 24 could be translated, “Let him refuse any association or companionship with himself.” Jesus is not referring to your conscious self. You must reach the point where you are willing to deny that you have the capacity to save yourself, or to be what God wants you to be. To come to Christ you must affirm that no good thing dwells in your flesh (Rom. 7:18), acknowledging you contribute nothing to your redemption.” The self-esteem cults that propagate love of self take people away from the message of the Bible. The more you love yourself, the less likely you are to sense your need for a Savior. To disown yourself is the first essential in the Christian life. That’s the way you come to Christ, and that’s the way you continue to live.; Paul also said, “We … worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh” (Phil. 3:3). When you come to Christ, you must do so on His terms: self-denial.;
The disciple is not above his teacher, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be like his teacher, and the servant like his lord. He warned His disciples that they would be persecuted (v. 23) .Count the costs beforehand.. Matthew 10:24-25–Jesus said;The disciple is not above his teacher, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be like his teacher, and the servant like his lord. He warned His disciples that they would be persecuted (v. 23) Matthew 10:34-36–Jesus continued, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth; I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.”;
Matthew 20: 27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
Narcissism  is used to describe a person characterized by harshness, egotism, vanity, pride, or selfishness.
Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a serious personal personality disorder in  which the individual is   excessively preoccupied with issues of personal needs, wants, desires, adequacy, power, prestige and even  vanity..
Persons diagnosed with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder are characterized by unwarranted, false  feelings of self-importance. They are aggressors who have  an abnormal sense of entitlement and demonstrate grandiosity in their beliefs and behavior. They have a over inflated strong need for admiration of others, but meanwhile lack feelings of love, care, concerns empathy for others. Like the case of a father who buys a nice new car for himself while his own son suffers in poverty. These negative  qualities are usually defenses against a deep feeling of inferiority and of being in the past rejected, unloved. Example- Rebuked in a marriage proposal.
The concept of Narcissus, excessive selfishness has been recognized negative through the Bible  throughout history. Narcissism is usually considered a major problem in a person or group’s relationships with self and others.
These  people who are pathologically narcissistic, are very much controlling, blaming, self-absorbed, intolerant of others’ views, unaware of others’ needs as well.,  obvious self-focused in interpersonal exchanges, problems in sustaining, satisfying relationships. lack of love to others, no emotional attachments, difficulty with empathy, clear problems distinguishing the self from others, manifest a hypersensitivity to any insults  real or imagined insults, criticism and manifests often rage and objects to narcissistic injury, napoleon complex,  use contempt to minimize the other person, can resort to physical abuse of others quite easily, inability to process shame in healthy ways.; gentleness only to those who admire and affirm them , detesting those who do not admire them , use other people without considering the cost of doing so, imposters, hypocrites, pretending to be more important even to all others over what they really are, self promoter, mostly, takes advantage of others to reach own imposed goals, always expects to be recognized as superior and special, without any real even  superior accomplishments, falsely expects constant attention, admiration and positive reinforcement of their goodness  from others; arrogant in attitudes and behavior, expectations of special treatment that are unrealistic, often lying, ragging  and exaggerate of their achievements, values, effects., claiming to be a genius,  “expert” at all things, clearly cold, unloving, fruitless, inability to view the world from the perspective of other people, clear denial of any wrong doings,  guilt, remorse and evident no  gratitude.
Narcissists hold unreasonable and false expectations of particularly favorable treatment form all others and the related automatic compliance because they consider falsely do themselves special above all others. Failure to comply to praising them is considered a personal  attack on  them, their superiority, and the unacceptable perpetrator is  immediately considered an “enemy” or “crazy” person, censured, not to associate with anymore. Any  Defiance of their will is a narcissistic injury that can trigger narcissistic even violent rage. All others are always to be placed in a  subservient position. All  Others either exist to meet their needs or may as well not exist at all.
Narcissistic persons  see themselves as perfect, using distortion and their false illusion known , self  projection to dump shame falsely unto onto others.
A narcissistic person  may secure a sense of superiority in the face of another person’s ability by using contempt to minimize the other person.
The  narcissistic person  who is feeling deflated does often  re-inflate by diminishing, debasing, or degrading somebody else. In other words a Slave driver, a control freak and  Bully as well.
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 Spurt.
2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Ephesians 5″:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood, as to understand;
The Word of God also tells us, “There are none good, no not one.” There are none inherently or presently totally good. “All always are sinners and all fall short of the glory of God.”
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 14 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
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.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. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
Zephaniah 2:3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
1 Corinthians 4:21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
Galatians 6;1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Ephesians 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
1 Timothy 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
2 Timothy 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
Titus 3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
James 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
James 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
1 John 1:5    This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Romans 12:1 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”
God created us to live our lives focused on Him. His purpose from the very beginning was that we should be “God-conscious,” not “self-conscious.”  Self-consciousness is just another way of saying self-centeredness, and self-centeredness really is the root of all grief, sin.
Self denial is not to deny one’s personality, it is instead the turning away from the idolatry of self centeredness and every attempt to orient one’s life by the dictates of self interest, Narcissism. “Denying ro oneself” is a consequence of true Christian faith, as it is not done not by ones works or legalistic obedience to the law,and the act leads one forward into the full life “in Christ.”
Galatians 2:  16    Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 17    But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. 18    For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19    For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20    I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21    I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. 
Matthew 10:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 25  “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26  “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27) “For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS.
Luke 9:22    Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. 23    And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24    For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25    For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
Matt 10:38 38 “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.; 39) “He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.;
Luke 14 :27 “Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. 28  “For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? 29) “Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him, 30  saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’ 31) “Or what king, when he sets out to meet another king in battle, will not first sit down and consider whether he is strong enough with ten thousand men to encounter the one coming against him with twenty thousand? 32) “Or else, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace. 33  “So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions.
In the Roman cultural context, “carrying the cross” was tacit admission that the criminal was wrong and that the death sentence was just. Death by crucifixion is what God still demands of you as well.
The first concern in the full, victorious,  Holy Spirit filled  life Christian life is dealing with the sin-controlled life as  trying to conquer all the many sins in our lives is hopeless without dealing with the root of sin — SELF.We may confess our sin all we like, but if we fail to die to self, that self will continue to produce sin. As our self centered life, unconfessed, continual  sin breaks our fellowship with God. Isaiah 59:2 tells us, “your iniquities have separated you from your God… that He will not hear”. God utterly hates sin in any form. To deal with sin, we need to agree with God about it, see it as He sees it, hate it as He hates it, and turn our back on it, Self is no longer to reign. “Reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin” (Romans 6:11). Surrender your entire self-life for God to put to death, to  crucify it with Jesus, and let the empowerment of the Holy Spirit now rather control it..  Jesus Himself uses the symbol of cross to represent the need of dying to self  five times (Matt 10:38; 16:24-26; Mark 8:34-35; Luke 9:23-24; 14:27).    It’s as hopeless as trying to kill a weed by cutting off its leaves. As long as even a part of the root is left in the ground, it will produce more leaves. Self is the root and sin is the leaves. Sinful character traits and attitudes are only leaves on the weed root of self.  Dying to self is commanded in several Scriptures: “reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin” (Romans 6:11); “put to death your members” (Colossians 3:5); “put off the old man” (Ephesians 4:22 and Colossians 3:9); “they have crucified the flesh” (Galatians 5:24 and 2:20). The uniform message is: “you are dead in Christ; therefore die.” Dying to self does not destroy the real person, but rather it does deals with what pollutes and destroys you  the real person in Christ. That selfish, sinful nature contaminates us and prevents Christ’s victorious, Holy Spirit filled  life to be evidenced in us, until it is reckoned (counted) as dead. .Thank God for delivering you now  from self-centeredness, as an ongoing step of faith. We already do know this deliverance is His will, and “if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us (and) we have the petitions that we have asked of Him” (1 John 5:14-15).
Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?;

NOW ABOUT THOSE DEMONIC LED PEOPLE WHO FALSELY STILL TRY TO MAKE YOU WORSHIP ON THE SEVENTH DAY, THE SABBATH, AND THAT IS NOT THE ONLY FALSE BONDAGE THEY DO TRY TO PUT ON YOU FOR SURE..  AFTER ALL THE DEVIL IS LEADING THEM TO DO ALL THIS AND NOT GOD.  http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2014/01/01/holy-spirit-ignorant-persons-do-teach-lies-rather-too-often/

Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

.

Most people take isolated verse and twist them to suit what they want others to believe still

.

Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

2 Corinthians 6:1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

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

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” -Romans 16:17-18 KJV

“Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I  found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” -Jude 1:3-4

(Isa 30:1 KJV) Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

(Gal 2:3 KJV) 4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: 5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.

.

Let me be very clear that the devil and his demon followers will try to seduce you in your mind, in your sleep and if he here does not succeed he will send a person to you, one of his clear followers, another false angel of light now too, and to try to do this as well now they will do this by phone, email, personal visit and they also will ask you to do something wrong on their behalf and/or falsely ask you to take sides in a fight or a dispute

Is the Sabbath Day Still Valid Today?  No. The Sabbath was a ceremonial law given only to a specific people (the Jews), during a specific time period (the Old Testament), in a specific region (Palestine). The Sabbath was an object lesson for the Jews, picturing the coming Messiah in Whom believers rest for salvation. When men cease from their self-righteous labors, and rest upon the redeeming blood sacrifice of the Son of God, they are saved (1st Peter 1:18,19). Colossians 2:14-17 plainly teach that the Old Testament ceremonial laws are no longer applicable concerning Christians or Jews… “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17 — Note: All Scriptures are quoted from the trustworthy King James Bible).

.

Jesus is our Sabbath today, in Whom we completely rest for salvation. God required the death penalty in the Old Testament for a man who  merely picked up some sticks on the sabbath Day (likely to make a fire). Why did God require the man’s death? It is because picking up sticks represents Human Effort in salvation, which is a road to Hell. The Sabbath represents resting solely in Christ Jesus for salvation. Adding even one work negates, corrupts and cancels God’s free gift of grace. Romans 3:20 warns that no flesh can be justified by the keeping of the Law of God. Salvation is by faith alone!
.
Today we honor the “Lord’s Day” on Sunday, the first day of the week, when Jesus rose from the dead; but this is voluntary and not obligatory. It is grace and not law. It was a much better time in America when stores and shops all drew down their shades on Sunday to prevent window shopping. People used to honor the Lord. We’ve lost our nation today because we have forsaken the God of the Bible.;

.

Charles Taze Russell was the founder of Zion’s Watch  Tower magazine in 1879, which evolved into the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Russell  started out as a Seventh Day Adventist, a cult which observes the Jewish  Sabbath, and was an anti-Trinitarian of the Arian school. According to the Watchtower  Observer, “Russell taught that the Jewish people and nation have a leading  role in the Divine Plan for man, and accordingly during the year 1910 he spoke  to vast Jewish audiences, comforting them according to the Scripture, Isa. 40:2…  He encouraged them not to join the various churches of today but to wait  for the fulfilment of the many Old Testament promises that they would be blessed  as a nation. While they were yet a scattered and dispersed people, he said, upon  the basis of these promises, that they would be regathered to Palestine and  established as an independent nation.” Russell was regarded as a “Christian  Zionist, often invited to speak before orthodox Jewish groups… In addition, his  views on Zionism have been hailed by the likes of former Israeli Prime Minister,  Benjamin Netanyahu, and former United Nations Ambassador, Jeane Kirkpatrick.”  (CTR: The Truth)

Too many persons here too are wrongfully these days adding or taking away from the word of God, the Bible and that is why there is so much disputes, different contradictory wrings in the Churches also these days.. of course this happens cause there will be always the wolves now amongst us as well, those followers of the devil who want to destroy the word of God too

“But in vain do they worship me, teaching as their teachings commandments of men. For, leaving the commandment of God, ye hold what is delivered by men to keep”, Mark 7: 7-8.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together unto him, that you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, that the day of Christ is at hand.” — 2 Thess. 2:1,2.Apostle Peter tells us in his second letter (1.16,19-2.3): For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty …. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place …. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that brought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you

(1 Tim 1:7 KJV) Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.(Heb 5:12 KJV) For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

.

Still our best personal help basically comes not by listening to other people but personally, daily abiding in God’s word alone.. our help is still not in people, their mere books, sermons, tapes, videos, but dwelling in the Bible alone .. really!!! And all of our Salvation, Deliverance Healing still comes to us by Jesus Christ, not by the OBSERVING THE REDUNDANT NOW LAWS,  LISTENING  TO AND WORSHIPING THE Jews or   anything else….

.

(John 1:1 KJV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

(John 1:10 KJV) He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 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: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

(1 John 1:1 KJV) That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

.

Many many persons do even today, these days misinterpret the Bible, it’s passages even firstly cause of their own real ignorance of what specifically the whole Bible says, and they as a result also do falsely rely on what others tell them.. which too often is still mere falsehood and lies.

.

One still personally cannot try thus to study the Bible, Old or New Testament in the flesh, without the spirit of God’s HELP who helped to write it now as well.

.

(Rom 8:2 KJV) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

(Rom 8:5 KJV) For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

(1 Cor 2:14 KJV) But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

(2 Cor 3:6 KJV) Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

(Gal 3:14 KJV) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

(Gal 5:18 KJV) But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

(Gal 6:8 KJV) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

(2 Tim 2:15 KJV) Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

(2 Tim 2:16 KJV) But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

(2 Tim 2:19 KJV) Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity

(2 Cor 11:4 KJV) 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.

You  are using still their corrupted, unregenerated, human spirit to try to understand God and his truths and not by the Holy Spirit so they clearly here will fail at it still too. I also know some people have their minds falsely made up about a lot of things based even on the false teaching of their denomination and it would be a great shock to their system to admit it may be wrong..

.

Christians met regularly on the first day of the week (our Sunday), not the Sabbath day (our Saturday) (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2). In honor of Christ’s resurrection on Sunday, a day to especially worship Jesus Christ. It is not recorded anywhere in God’s Word that He imposed Sabbath-keeping on any holy men of God (or anyone else), nor how to keep the Sabbath before the Law of Moses was given about 1425 B.C., more than 2,500 years after Creation! Adam, Noah, Enoch , Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (Israel), Joseph all did not observe the Sabbath and many others.True Christians, whether born-again Jews or Gentiles, have entered the Sabbath Rest which is Jesus Christ. Jesus, himself, did not keep the Sabbath. On the Sabbath, “Jesus said to them [the Jews], ‘My Father is always at His work to this very day, and I, too, am working.’ For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill Him; not only was He breaking the Sabbath, but He was even calling God His own Father, making himself equal with God” (John 5:17-18). Some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, for He does not keep the Sabbath” (John 9:16).Jesus did not sin, by not keeping the Sabbath, because He was, and is, sinless. Indeed, Jesus is The Sabbath, in whom Christians (saved Jews and Gentiles) rest. All those who have not been born again, whether Jews or Gentiles, have not entered into The Sabbath rest. The Messianic Jews, Seventh Day Adventists and some other Sabbatarians are still so deceived and so hung up on the Sabbath (which none really keep) that they go to the absurd extreme of claiming that worshipping on the Lord’s Day is taking the mark of the beast!

 .
 
Messianic Jews, Judaizer , Seventh day Adventist what do they have in common? well they follow the old testament laws for a start, those laws that God has given for the Jewish people alone to observe and not to the Christian Persons.. Christian persons follow solely the laws of the New Testament..
 .
 
Now about the Judaizers
v. Ju·da·ized, Ju·da·iz·ing, Ju·da·iz·es. v.tr. To bring into conformity with Judaism. v.intr. To adopt Jewish customs and beliefs. ( Not the Christian ones)
 .
 
Now if I eat meat, can I still claim to be a vegetarian? No, of course not!
 
 .
Could you be Christian and DENY Jesus and his finished work on the cross as well? NO
 
 .
SO WITH THE Same logic. You can’t be Jewish, a Jew, a Judiazer and also now EMBRACE Jesus.
 
Almost a Christian is not the same thing as being a real Christian.
 
 
What a really mess this all is with many people following their own religion version basically and not the true religion of Jesus Christ found in the New Testament. Do they even rightfully firstly understand that Christianity teaches that Judaism is the ‘old’ covenant which Christianity has replaced? As nobody today can follow both religions; for they are mutually exclusive.
 
 .
I agree that once you accept Jesus, you’re a Christian and no longer a Jew or a messianic Jew nor a Seventh Day Adventist…
 
 .
Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
 
1 Corinthians 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
 
 .
We already know that Colossians 2:6-17 says God abolished the Sabbath..
 
 .
Colossians 2:6-17 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

And Constantine was what 300 years later AFTER JESUS…. The first Pope did not exist until 606 AD! (over 500 years too late) This is far too late because Christians were meeting on Sundays from the earliest record of history. Now neither the Pope or Emperor Constantine still did not change the Sabbath to Sunday. do you really know what you are even talking about now? in GOD’s name Judiazer do Now for the GRACE of GOD DO NOW stop your lies.. “

The apostle Paul cautions the Philippians against Judaizing false teachers, apostle Paul  SPECIFICALLY calls them evil-workers..  as they work hard at trying to falsely destroy the Christian faith..   Messianic Judaism is not just Christianity for Jews or even Christianity in a Jewish context. It is the modern equivalent of the “Judaizers” who plagued the New Testament in the time of the apostles.   Because of a false infatuation still with Judaism and Israel, Messianic Jews,  Zionists Christians evangelicals, and others falsely do   encourage the establishment of what Revelation calls “ Babylon the Great,” a rising system of anti-Christ Jewish control and oppression centering in Jerusalem.  They falsely do glorify an apostate religious system of which Christ said He would never be seen in again until they say, “Blessed is He (Jesus) that comes in the name of the Lord.” (Matthew 23:39)   Jesus called this rejected system the “synagogue of Satan” for a good reason. Talmudic Judaism masterminded our Lord’s crucifixion. It went on to become the foundation of the modern world revolutionary movement, spawning communism, liberalism, and Jewish financial and media control.  This modern, Christ-rejecting Judaism is now nothing of which to be proud. Christ and the New Testament command us to beware of it (Matthew 16:6, Philippians 3:2, etc.) and flee from “ Babylon” on penalty of loss of our souls. Paul told Peter he “stood condemned” for allowing such Judaizers to again impose the bondage of circumcision. (Galatians 2) But many of today’s Messianic Judaizers want to do much more: impose not just mandatory circumcision on their followers but the entirety of the Old Testament law! What is real Christian spiritual? It is submission  Jesus. Just as He gave up everything in death for our redemption, so we must give ourselves completely to Him as His bride. “Any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.” (Luke 14:33) Complete repentance and surrender of self is all Jesus truly wants from us. Messianic Jews falsely do not do this.
 .
Wake up Christians!! There is a concerted demonic,  Jewish effort to destroy you. Will you continue to sleep through it all while the antichrist teachings  brainwashes you even more? They are busy changing the religion of Christ into a lawless “Judeo” religion that will bring nothing but your demise.and despair.
 .
2 Cor 11:1  Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.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. 5 For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles.6 But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.7 Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?8 I robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service.9 And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself. 10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth.12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works
 
1 Cor 11:1, 1    Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
 
Colossians 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
 
Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

The Bible states directly that God will break the bond of brotherhood between Judah and Israel in the LAS DAYS (Zech. 11:10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people. 11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD. 12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. 13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD. 14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel. 15 And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd. 16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces. 17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened. ).

.

This rupture is symbolized by a staff that God names “bands.” Most PEOPLE today would say that Judah is Israel. But it is not! This passage in Zechariah is one of many that proves Israel and Judah are not one and the same. JESUS CHRIST IS FROM THE TRIBE OF Judah, AND THE RUPTURE HAS ALREADY OCCURRED..

.

Jesus himself now had replaced Judaism,  had made obsolete Judaism..had destroyed  their Temple now too as it was no longer needed   .

http://www.lavistachurchofchrist.org/LVstudies/GospelAccounts/a47FallOfJerusalem.html

.

Many people know and read the Bible, preach it too so what? many of them are still going to hell cause they are on the wrong track of following  self over God..

.

There is a need to still  hear continually,  personally, directly from the Holy Spirit and his words to you at all times.. and not from mere men.. 

.

The Holy Spirit will still then lead you to Jesus Christ solely and his words, all those even  found in the New testament..  and we all do  also need to be leading all people to Jesus Christ  too..  1 Corinthians 2″2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. God uses his Word to do this.  Rom 10:17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing from the Word of Christ.” Faith comes from hearing, hearing what?; hearing from the mouth, the Word of Christ.

.

There are many false alternative revelations that are not from God  still,  many things you can preach or hear  today, even those items from your lusts, your schooling, philosophies, trends, fads of thinking, what your parents told  you, your pastors- teachers told l you, your friends tell you, what society tells you, what professors and so-called thinkers. leaders do  tells you. All what the devil tells you too.. and still  all claiming  to be the truth, in God’s will .

.

 But if it contradicts the world of God, the Bible, the Holy Spirit. and you have to known them all three now  well too,  or it makes you get your eyes of Jesus  and His Words, it is still now only all from the devil. 1 Corinthians 1: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

.

If you do not even know firstly also the Holy Spirit, as you are not even yet walking with Him then really are re you not still mostly putting your faith in things that are all false?

.

Are you really honestly  listening then now  to the Word of Christ or the word of the devil? 1 Jn 3:2 “Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when He appears we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is. 1 Jn 3:3 And everyone who thus hopes in Him purifies himself as He is pure.” Purity can come only when the personal Word of God to us still has not been corrupted with man’s thinking and philosophies, even though they are deep and the revelations of demons.

.

Only believing in the pure undiluted Holy Spirit taught Word of God  can it  bring one the real faith. Anything else is of the devil and will bring you next death and destruction. Rom 14:23 “But the one who doubts is condemned if he partakes, because he does not do so from faith, and everything that is not from faith is sin.” Your time is now, your opportunity is now, the choices you make will take you deeper into corruption or deeper into the real faith. Unconfessed Sin will keep you away from the truth.

.

 If you listen to, obey  the personal  undiluted Word of God you get and have the real faith, but if you choose instead  the  false philosophical revelations of the devil, you get deceived  with corruption and you are building your house on the sand. The devil speaks the truth too like the young woman who had an evil spirit that spoke the truth about Paul and his associates.

.

There is only one Truth and that is the person of Jesus of the Bible, not even  the Jesus of your own making. If that offends you, if you’re offended by the Truth, then you have a very chilling fate awaiting you in Hell  Even if you claim to be a preacher,  Pastor now too..

.

Now I know specifically the truths that God has taught me personally even the last 30 years as a Pastor  so I can more easily now spot the much too many wolves in sheep clothing rather too.. so should we all…. the Holy Spirit still confirms it all to me too.. that is the reality..

Islam, Muslims, the reality

z islam

 A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up outside a 130-year-old church in Pakistan after Sunday Mass, killing at least 81 people in the deadliest attack on Christians in the predominantly Muslim South Asian country. Sadly this is an unacceptable  common event now and world wide too.. Evidently too many Islamists even now are  using falsely God and Islam to justify their murderous rampage they must be widely condemned by all Muslims around the world but that is not the case…  Not enough is even  being done in Islamic countries to protect their Christian minorities and the other targets of these Islamic murderers,  killers.

.

The New York Police Department has  labeled entire mosques as terrorism organizations, a designation that allows police to use informants to record sermons and spy on imams,   without specific evidence of criminal wrongdoing.  

Islam is  murder, bloodshed, pedophilia and the quest for global domination . Islam is glorious  ONLY if you’re a Muslim  male because you can do almost anything you want, as all the negative human characteristics are permissible. The woman is completely subjected to men under Islamic law. Women in Muslim countries have absolutely no rights at all and are second-class citizens to the men. Non-Muslims in Muslim lands have to pay a tax called the jiza just so they can live in safety and can be taken as a slave at any moment by Muslim masters. In Saudi Arabia if a non-Muslim enters certain areas off limits to them, the punishment is death. The atrocities against humanity under the guise of Islam are horrendous and show any civilized person that Islam is the wrong way, so is a false religion meaning it is a creation of the devil. Muslims  are on the wrong path; their  path leads you to the pit of hell for believing and supporting the murder of Gods creation, the innocent men, women and children they too often do delight in killing because Allah tells them to do it. My God tells me to enjoy life that He has given to me as a gift and theirs s tells you to enjoy death, come on wake up and smell the death..

.

Either you are Muslim, and there is no middle ground on that question (all Muslims are from the same tree) on the side of barbarism and Islam’s war of conquest or you can  live in a loving peaceful environment of God- Jesus Christ who loves you. All of you Muslims living in Western countries should look to Afghanistan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and if this is the type of regime you desire to live under then you should leave our Christian land and go and live with the oppressor under the doom and gloom of Islam. If your fellow Muslims get there way they will turn this country into another Islamic state just like the murderous, suppressive countries we see around the world.In Muslim countries Muslims who convert from Islam to any other religion are murdered as apostates, so Muslims throughout the world living in Islamic communities know that turning away from Islam is punishable by death. As a Christian in a Christian land our community offers protection and security for any one who rejects Islam, death for apostasy is not tolerated in our Christian country and we offer protection and sanctuary to anyone in fear for their lives from Islamic butchers. It is one more oppressive feature of Islam, making people live with the knowledge of punishment of death for rejecting the hate, murder and oppression of Islam.

. ISLAM IS FROM THE PITS OF HELL.. WE CAN READ EVERYDAY IN THE NEWS THE FRUIT OF ISLAM.. WHAT ISLAMIC PEACE IS LIKE.. IT IS MURDER, DEATH, VIOLENCE

.

Informed people know that Allah was an Arab moon god whose name Mohammed elevated to be the name of Islam’s highest power. That is why the crescent moon and a star are on the Islamic flag and on Islamic houses of worship. Informed people know that fundamentalist Muslim clerics have loudly and clearly declared jihad, or holy war, against all infidels ― that is, all non-Muslims of the world.

.
And informed people know that the Koran says that by killing an infidel, a Muslim is assured of a place in heaven.  We must stand against the evil spirit of Islam which says all who love the God of Abraham,  must be eliminated. This is extremely problematic and a real stumbling block when it comes to forming friendships or cooperative relationships with those of the Islamic faith.    http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/should-we-deport-all-muslims-from-canada/

.

Any intelligent person  CAN know that Islam is a creation of the devil because of the darkness it contains, and its agenda of complete world domination. A world governed by Allah, with the false prophet Mohamed and his actions, as its role model for all Muslims around the world. What worse thought can there be than having a world full of people seeking to emulate Mohamed? The very worst thing about Mohamed is that he married and had sex with a 9-year-old girl. In our civilized Christian world we lock people up as sexual predators and pedophiles for that type of behavior, yet Mohamed did it and Muslims around the world continue to do it to this day, Mohamed conducted many military campaigns, conquering lands and people so as to be able to enforce Islam upon them, thus Islam was birthed and grew through war and conquest. Islam is conducting a global war to conquer the world for Allah, because Mohamed is their example and this was how he achieved his aims. Mohamed taught there is no greater thing than to die fighting Jihad and killing the non-Muslim; this is why certain human beings are killing themselves to achieve Islam’s aims, the Koran teaches it. They believe that God will give them 72 sweet young Virgins for killing another human being, how delusional is that and again shows us the dark driving forces contained in Islam twisting peoples minds to achieve hate and murder against other human beings. How can any sane civilized person want to be a part of this false religion when these are the things it teaches human beings to do. How can anyone in their sane mind believe these things are right, those people who are in the Muslim kingdom are delusional, blinded by the darkness and need to wake up and see the light before it is to late for them.

.

Islam is not a religion, nor a cult, but a total and complete 100% system of life. Like Judaism It has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. In all of the 27 countries ruled by Islam, Islam is the state! No other religion will be tolerated. “Islam presents a monstrous worldview, birthed in the pit of hell, which brings untold misery and murder upon precious people created in the image of God. Religion is its cover (its beard) by which it gains entrance into nations where the ‘freedom of religion’ is sacrosanct. It then takes this freedom afforded to it, and begins its insidious takeover.”

.

The governmental protests have been now also spreading rapidly through the Middle East and North Africa. A major slogan of the demonstrators in the Arab world has been Ash-sha`b yurid isqat an-nizam (“The people want to bring down the regime”) This Arab Spring also known as the Arabic Rebellions or the Arab Revolutions) is a revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests occurring in the Arab world. Since 18 December 2010 there have been revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt; a civil war in Libya resulting in the fall of its regime; civil uprisings in Bahrain, Syria, and Yemen, Algeria,[Iraq, Jordan, Morocco,and Oman, and minor protests in Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan,[ and Western Sahara. The protests have shared techniques of civil resistance in sustained campaigns involving strikes, demonstrations, marches and rallies, as well as the use of social media to organize, communicate, and raise the revolutionary campaign.

.

The fact that the the largest, most organized demonstrations have often occurred on a “day of rage”, usually the Muslim Friday after noon prayers indicates who is realy behind these uprisings. The reintroduction of Sharia is a longstanding goal for Islamist movements in Muslim countries. Sharia deals with many topics addressed by secular law, including crime, politics and economics, as well as personal matters such as sexuality, hygiene, diet, prayer, and fasting. Where it enjoys official status, Sharia is applied by Islamic judges, or qadis. Sharia law would also next ban democracy and the personal freedoms we all in America do now take for granted.

.

In the countries where the ‘Arab Spring’ began, Islamists supporters are now supposedly set to win big, to have a bigger say in the Governments acts. Many persons now rightfully worry about the future of all  person’s civil liberties – and the ongoing  likelihood of extreme  Islamist victories in many other countries.
.
“Islamonausea is a normal and natural reaction to something abnormal, not vice versa.  There is nothing phobic or racist in feeling nausea when hearing about the Islamic massacres performed by Muhammad and his many devout copycats through history and all over the world even today. The same goes for Muhammad’s sexual relationship with a nine-year old girl, and the cutting off of limbs and stonings in the name of Allah and his Sharia laws. And the Muslims’ epidemic practice of forced inbreeding (which damages intelligence and increases the risk of psychiatric diseases) — often many generations in a row — one may also experience unpleasant feelings . There is also no shame in feeling nausea when hearing about the extreme social control, violence and murderous examples made to keep and scare hundreds of millions of their women from enjoying their human rights to chose on their own their sexual partners, clothing and lifestyle. The many calls for hatred, violence and killing of non-Muslims commanded by the  Koran are outright disgusting.” Imagining an Islamic  takeover  may also make all females, or any one to lose one’s appetite even   http://www.siotw.org/modules/news_english/item.php?itemid=1150
.

The Muslim religion has a long history of atrocities,oppressions, injustices that are reason enough to abolish these notions of any divinity pronto. The laws should treat people of all faiths equally, while protecting Muslims and non-Muslims alike from the religious extremists attempts to use the legal instrument of shari‘ah (also known as Islamic jurisprudence, or fiqh) to incubate, “Islamism,” or “radical Islam.”

.

The kettle says the pot is black but it next does the same bad things. These Muslim rebels or terrorists, in the Middle East, North Africa Muslim countries misrepresent themselves these days often to all, and even by the news media , even the Canadian news media tends to spread their lies , sadly even even the Canadian government, that these citizen protests are valid now, but while they the rebels or terrorists, do claim they are now overthrowing the central, political government and it’s leader cause it has been cruel, despotic, undemocratic government, evident in the face of the state attempts at repression, and internet censorship, but the basic truth is that they the rebels or terrorists, are all now calling for the overthrow or are overthrowing these bad governments because they are or were mostly secular governments, and and the rebels or terrorists, really do want to establish a religious Muslim state governed by sharia laws where they too themselves next will even become dictatorial, undemocratic, and yes they will oppress others, the Jews and the Christians now included.

.

Convert to Islam and get killed by another Islamist seems the world wide Norm in Muslim  countries too..

‘Half of Europeans say Islam is a religion of intolerance.. MUSLIMS RIOTING AGAIN and again in many places in many places in Europe show how they cannot live in peace.. Muslims do often  become a growing threat peace, and to the native populations of Europe. Many Europeans fear their Muslim populations. In Switzerland, 25% consider Muslims a threat to their country. In Italy, half the population believes a “clash of civilizations” between Islam and the West is underway and that Islam is “a religion more fanatical than any other.”  In most of the countries a majority believe Islam to be a religion of intolerance, with agreement just below 50 percent only in Great Britain and the Netherlands.Muslims also insist that Europeans stop using their right of free speech on pain of death, European tolerance comes to an end. Europeans today still revel in their liberty.. so they evict the Muslims now, a world wide event too. Wilders says, “Deporting millions of Muslims may be necessary” Muslims worldwide are reaping what they have sowed..

.

The ten obvious reasons why Islam is not a religion of peace.
http://www.siotw.org/modules/news_english/item.php?itemid=925

.

In a recent survey by Léger Marketing for the Association of Canadian Studies in Montreal, Canadians were asked how positive they feel about different groups. Muslims received the lowest ranking. The results echoed the findings of a previous survey for the association, this one marking 10 years since 9/11, which found that a majority of Canadians believe that conflicts between Western nations and the Muslim world are “irreconcilable.”  Why does the Canadian government try to sleep with the murderers, because of the oil still?

.

We are against multiculturalism,”Most Canadians and Quebecers are still  blaming the heathen multiculturalism of the Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Jews for the continual social unrest, and bombs, as  even the  news daily indicates, confirms and thus they want not any affiliations with any of these groups now too.70 percent of Quebecers would not allow their sons or daughters to marry a Jew or a Muslim.

.

Now the majority of Canadians view non-Christian religions with uncertainty and dislike.  What’s more surprising is that Canadians’ opinions of religions like Islam, Sikhism, and Hinduism have actually worsened since the last time Angus Reid conducted this survey in 2009. ‘s interesting to compare these numbers to similar polls conducted in the United States. In 2010, CBS Polling found that 53 per cent of Americans had an unfavourable view of Islam. A 2009 Gallup survey indicated that 35 per cent of Americans had an unfavourable opinion of Buddhism while 56 per cent were uncertain of Judaism  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/pqs-proposed-charter-of-quebec-value/

IT WAS SUPPOSEDLY ILLEGAL FOR THE US TO KILL HIM? BUT WHAT  NOW BIN LADEN DID MANY TIMES SUCH AS KILL OTHERS WAS UNDENIABLY ILLEGAL FIRSTLY. HE WAS JUDGED ACCORDING TO HIS OWN STANDARDS.

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/killing-one-more-major-terrorist-is-it-adequate-or-enough-true-or-false/

.

There is no doubt that Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Jews are now even terrified about the  proposed revisions to the Quebec Charter of human rights and freedoms  and the lack of multiculturalism support  in Quebec. This handwriting on the wall is frightening to them as History repeats itself.  But if they do not like it let them go back to their old countries where they came from.   While 75% of respondents agreed that immigration made the province “strong,” half of Quebecers disagreed with the concept of multiculturalism, calling for new immigrants in the province to abandon their native custom and dress in an attempt to become “more like Quebecers.” The majority of the respondents shared the belief that multiculturalism breeds strife… 

.
World wide Muslims are continually finding themselves these days now forced to leave the intelligent countries, Europe, Russia, Canada, USA, etc where theynmow do lose their good jobs, cannot find work and have to go back to their own Muslims world where they likely will be killed, jailed etc..No fun being a Muslim for sure.. “Muslim Badia Senouci told: ‘change your religion’.. Woman alleges she and family were verbally assaulted and spit on while shopping” Senouci was shopping two weeks ago in Ste-Foy with her son and husband when an older woman approached them and began insulting their religion. The woman insisted that Senouci remove her hijab, and then told her the government would soon be forcing her to remove her headscarf anyway. Senouci says that when her 18-year-old son Ahmed intervened and asked the woman to stop harassing his mother, she spit in his face. The son pushed the older woman in reaction. She in turn hit Senouci’s son, and then the husband when he acted to separate them, with her bag. Senouci and her family are originally from Algeria 14 years ago.. She says this incident, and another one from earlier in the day where she was insulted while her car stopped at a light, are recent events where she has been a target while living here. The family says the Quebec charter has already radically changed Quebecers. She feels the charter and the controversy it has caused has made it socially acceptable to single out people like her.” Not really Muslims were never welcomed in Canada..

Mormons, the still lost souls

`deEVILhttp://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2008/11/01/the-true-church-of-jesus-christ-2/

.

A true Christian believers set of beliefs, doctrines is based on what the Holy Spirit himself who also is God himself now teaches you and me and his teachings they  will not contradict the Bible..  and it is not rather based solely on what an angel or other men may teach us too.  http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2008/11/01/the-true-church-of-jesus-christ-2/

.

Like all cults, Mormons do tend to  get really upset when you question their own beliefs, Most Mormons think they are Christians. They use Christian words. They say they believe in Jesus and the Bible. They say they pray to God through Jesus. And they try to live good lives. But does God now speak to them even?  for they really are not Christians.   http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/10/09/like-all-cults-mormons-do-tend-to-get-really-upset-when-you-question-their-own-beliefs/

.

The truth is that Mormons are not Christians. They use Christian words but the words have non-Christian definitions. They believe in a Jesus, but the Jesus they believe in is not the Jesus of the Bible.   The Jesus of Mormonism differs from the Jesus of the Bible .The Jesus of the Mormonism Bible  is not the real Jesus of the real Bible.   http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/09/07/mormonism-vs-biblical-teachings-about-jesus/

.

Like all cults, Mormons do tend to  get really upset when you question their own beliefs, and MORMONS WON’T TELL YOU initially
– that they believe your Church is wrong, that your Christian creeds are abomination to God, and that all of your pastors or Priest are a hireling of Satan.
–  that there is salvation only in their church  and that all others are wrong.
– that those who have been through their temples are wearing secret underwear to protect themselves from “evil”. This “evil” includes all non- Mormons like you.
–  about their secret temple rites at all. If they did, you for sure would spot them as non-Christians immediately.
–  that they think “familiar spirits” are good, and that their Book of Mormon has a “familiar spirit”. The Bible, Leviticus 19;31 says familiar spirits defile one, and are to be avoided at all costs.
– that women receive salvation only through their Mormon husbands, and must remain pregnant for all eternity. Men and women are not equal in God.
–  that they intend to be gods themselves some day, and are helping to earn their exaltation to godhood by talking to you.
–  that they intend to have many wives in heaven, carrying on multiple sex relations throughout eternity, until they have enough children to populate their own earth, so they can be “Heavenly Father” over their own planet!
–  that you were once a spirit-child of their heavenly father, and one of his numerous wives before you were born on earth.
–  that the Virgin Mary really wasn’t a virgin at all but had sex relations with their heavenly father to produce the Mormon version of Jesus Christ
–  that they believe the lie that Jesus had at least three wives and children while he was on this earth.
–  that the “heavenly father” they ask you to pray to with them, is really an exalted man that lives on a planet near the star base Kolob, and is not the Heavenly Father of the Bible at all. More Mormon lies.
–  that Jesus was really Lucifer’s brother in the spirit world, and it was only due to a “heavenly council” vote that Jesus became our redeemer instead of Satan!!
–  that there are over one hundred divisions in Mormonism. They conveniently “forget” this even while criticizing the many denominations within the body of Christ
–  that all their so- called scriptures such as the Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, Doctrine and Covenants, and even their official “Mormon Doctrine” statements do often contradict each other on MAJOR doctrinal points. They claom the  King James Bible is likewise contradicted.
–  that the reason the Book of Mormon has no maps is because there is not one scrap of archaeological evidence to support it!
–  that the state of Utah, which is predominately Mormon, has a higher than the national average of wife-beating, child abuse, and teenage suicide.
 – that their prophet Joseph Smith was heavily involved in the occult when he founded Mormonism.
 – that that they encourage visitations from dead relatives from the “spirit world”, a practice forbidden in the Bible. (Deuteronomy 18:10- 12.)
– that there are many accounts of Joseph Smith’s first vision besides he one they present to you, and all are different
– that their secret temple oaths are based on the Scottish Rite Masons.
– that for years they considered the Negro race inferior, and even one drop of Negro blood prevented a person from entering their temple.
– that they expect Christ to return to their temple in Missouri, but they haven’t built the temple He’s supposed to return to, because they don’t own the property. (It is owned by the “Temple Lot Mormons” who have plans  of their own forr it’s use, and won’t let the Salt Lake City group buy it).
– that they consider your Bible to be untrustworthy and full of errors.
– that Jesus’ death on the cross only partially saves the believer.
– that now  according to Anton Lavey’s Satanic Bible, the demon god of the living dead is called “Mormo”. Is it just a coincidence that the Mormons are so concerned with the dead?
– that on their Salt Lake City Temple they prominently display an upside-down star which is a Satanic symbol known as the Goat’s head.. Why?
– that they believe the Archangel Michael came down to earth with several of his celestial wives, and became Adam in the garden of Eden.
– that that they believe the angel Gabriel came down to earth and became Noah in the days of the flood.
– that their Prophet Joseph Smith prophesied falsely many times. For example, he foretold the second coming of Christ for 1891. The Bible teaches that one false prophecy puts a prophet under death sentence. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22).
– that their Prophet Joseph Smith did not die as a martyr as they claim, but was killed during a gun battle with an angry mob  in which he himself killed two men and wounded a third. The Mob  was upset he had abused their wives and money too. Joseph Smith was no saint at all.
– about the Mountain Meadows Massacre in which they brutally murdered an innocent wagon train of settlers, of over one hundred men, women, and most of the children, traveling through Utah.
– that Joseph Smith taught that there were inhabitants on the moon, and Brigham Young taught there were inhabitants on the sun as well!
 
WHY WON’T MORMONS TELL YOU THESE THINGS?

The False critics of real Christianity resist still having now the Lord Jesus Christ  as part of their lives. “When they look at the Old Testament (OT) and compare it to the New Testament (NT), they fail to see how the two interconnect. They deny that all three persons of the godhead (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) were active in the Old Testament and claim that the Trinity is nothing more than an idea conjured up in the New Testament. Mankind in his sinfulness is more comfortable serving gods who are created in their  image, but the God of true Christianity expects us to be like Jesus Christ  because everything he does is done in truth and righteousness.

.

This is aa  variance with the way the New Testament interprets, fulfills, annuls and completes the Old Testament. For example,  “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.” (Acts 10:34-35). If God does not show favoritism, the Jews cannot an longer presume to enjoy a favored or exclusive status. By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear. (Hebrews 8:13). The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming– not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship (Hebrews 10:1) It is fundamental that all persons, Zionist and Christians,  do read the Scriptures solely with Christian eyes, and that they interpret the Old Covenant in the light of the New Covenant, not the other way round.  Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.  These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.  (Colossians. 2:16-17) This is the most basic hermeneutical error which Christian Zionists consistently repeat is illustrated in the way Christian Zionists continue to regard the Jews as God’s ‘chosen people’ and clearly which is no longer true.  Jesus and the apostles repudiated the notion that the Jews continued to enjoy a special status or relationship apart from faith in Jesus as their Messiah. And now ‘chosenness’ is the gift of God’s grace in Jesus Christ to all who trust in Him, irrespective of their racial origins. In the New Testament and the term is  never used exclusively of the Jewish people, apart from as members of the Church. Jesus Christ is the ‘chosen’ one. Indeed in the New Testament the term is always used to refer to the Church, the Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:11).Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12) But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10) It is therefore no longer appropriate to designate the Jews as God’s ‘chosen people’. The term has been redefined to describe all those who trust in Jesus Christ.

.

Tithing is not a Christian requirement now as well.. In fact the whole New testament Christian church was helping the Poor Christian persons firstly not just apostle Paul, for they will know we are Christians by how we love one another, not our mere words still too– he Paul was just a delivery boy on behalf of the Christian Church, And all pastors need to help the poor people in their church, all churches too.. Jesus Christ cared for the poor people! yes he fed them, healed them, delivered them too. and all very much unlike these days where the evangelical leaders live high on the hog, and their churches especially seems to be too self centered, have falsely abdicated their duties, roles falsely in helping the poor people.. but seem too readily even these days to steal the tithe..   Undeniably 1/7 of the tithe was to be given directly to the local poor people, can any local evangelical, catholic church ,can  even the cult Mormon prove in fact prove  that they do this? http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/secret-tithing/

.

Even Polygamy is wrong because it necessarily involves adultery. That is why it is not specifically banned anywhere in the New testament Bible – because it is covered by the laws that deal with adultery.   If you have sex with someone other than your wife then it is adultery, and simply going through a ceremony, even if it is legally valid, cannot make that second woman into a wife in the eyes of God.   Jesus said looking at a women, (who is not your sole wife,) is still adultery too.     Adultery is stealing the sex that does not belong to you, it belongs to another man or women.  99.9 percent of the Christians have never practiced polygamy for centuries now too and that alone should have been quite explicit the clear condemnation of polygamy.   http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2008/05/23/polygamy/

.

Messianic Jews, Judiazers, Seventh day Adventists, Mormons , Jehovah Witnesses  they all do now still have more in common with the Jews over the true Christians as Christians are NOT nor ever will be the restored Jews’ YOU CANNOT BE STILL JUDAIC AND EMBRACE JESUS. It is as simple as that. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2011/11/26/messianic-jews-judaizers-seventh-day-adventist/

You are a Messianic Jew?

messianc-yeshua 2

 You are a Messianic Jew? But there really is no such thing in the whole New testament.. all the Jews became Christians.. https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2012/08/04/the-dangers-of-the-hebrew-roots-messianic-movement/

.

It is a fact that if you base even your Christian theology on the Old Testament alone you will be in serious error. Major, major error. 

https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2013/03/18/left-out-of-the-kingdom-of-god-jews-included/

.

Can you be a practicing Jew and also believe that Jesus is the messiah? The   answer is no.
.
Though Christianity began as a Jewish sect, it quickly became an all-gentile affair. Indeed, Christians came to understand themselves as people who by definition were not Jewish and who believed that Christianity had “superseded” Judaism — that is, “taken its seat” of favor before God
.
The word “Jew” next rather came to mean those who had denied Christ, even murdered him, having been unable to see their own scripture’s clear prediction of his coming
.
The false need of the Jewish Christian to keep their Jewish identity is a direct result, proof that they have not given up  all to Jesus, as Jesus Christ is not the sole lord of their life still.
.
And just as many people convert to Judaism, and become Jews, those who convert out of Judaism are no longer Jews
.
Many people, Messianc Jews  included erroneously believe that, just as one can be black and Christian, just as one can be oriental and Christian, one can also be Jewish and Christian. This misconception has no  truth to it.This is total nonsense because God’s  covenant with Abraham was a religious covenant, not racial. 
.
 
“Daniel Rufeisen was born Jewish, of two Jewish parents. Because of the nazi persecutions, his parents hid him with a couple who were Catholic. But, they raised him as a Catholic, and he became a Catholic priest. Father Daniel, aware of his parents’ heritage, went to Israel and applied to become a citizen of Israel under the Law of Return. The Israeli Supreme Court denied his application, stating that, since he converted, he was no longer a Jew. He had to wait the customary time for any other non-Jew to become a naturalized Israeli citizen, just as in the United States, one has to wait 6 years in order to become a naturalized United States citizen. “
.
 .
“ Another instance of a born-Jew being denied his/her rights is shown in the case of Malvern Jacobs, a prominent Messianic minister and a certified minister of the United Church, who died in late June, 1998. His family and followers attempted to bury him in Toronto’s Pardes Shalom Cemetery. However, just before the body was brought to the cemetery, the Toronto Council of Orthodox Rabbis ruled that Jacobs was not a Jew because of his conversion to Christianity and ordered the gate to the cemetery chained and locked to prevent the body from being buried there. That led to a four hour stand-off between the mourners and cemetery officials, and the eventual return of the body to the funeral home.  The body was buried the next day in a non-sectarian cemetery. According to the Toronto Sun, Jacobs was an ordained Christian minister and was dean of the Canada Christian College in Toronto. The Sun quoted family members saying that Jacobs believed in Jesus since age 9. Yet, his family claimed he never converted. “My father was born a Jew, lived as a Jew, was involved in the Jewish community, and wanted to die with dignity and pride as a Jew,” said Leslie Jacobs, 48. “He never converted.”  The Sun also noted that Jacobs started what was the largest Messianic congregation, Melech Yisrael, in North York, more than 25 years ago. According to Scott Hillman, Education Director of Jews for Judaism, Jacobs was personally responsible for the establishment of 12 messianic congregations in Canada. These stories are show the solid instances of why Jews who accept Christianity are no longer considered Jewish.”
..
There are so called Christian Jews  that call themselves ‘Messianic Jews’ whose faith is totally alien to the Jewish faith, or Christian faith and members of these groups who were born to Jewish parents have a status of apostates who removed themselves from the Jewish Nation.
.
That ‘Messianics’  are considered and accepted as Jews is unheard of. A Jew who believes in Jesus as his/her “Lord and Savior” has become a Christian and is no longer a Jew.
.
So long as one remains a Christian, one is no longer a Jew. But if one wishes to return to Judaism, then one is no longer a Christian. So long as one believes that Jesus was anything more than a human being who lived and died around 2,000 years ago, that person cannot convert to Judaism, and become a Jew.
.
The two faiths of Judaism and Christianity are simply mutually exclusive, and they are not compatible.
.
You were born Jewish, but believe in another religion, and want to be recognized as a Jew? That is simple! Simply reject your other belief system, and go back to the dead Judaism.
.
Christianity and rabbinic Judaism emerged as rival claimants to continuity with Israel after the destruction of the Jewish temple in 70 AD.
 .
Especially troubling to Jews is that Christian missionary efforts like Avodat Yisrael seem duplicitous. Messianic Jews use altered English or Hebrew words for traditionally Christian terms in an effort to display a Jewish form of Christianity. The baptismal process is called a mikveh. for example, and the New Testament is the New Covenant or the B’rit Chadashah. Christian symbols like the cross are removed or put to the side. Some Messianic Jews lie and say they are not Christians, but Jewish followers of “Rabbi Yeshua.”
 .
Yet the question still too often arises: Can a practicing Jew also believe in Jesus?  Never.
.
The question arises in a forceful way especially with the presence of “Messianic Jews,” who claim that their profession of Jesus as messiah and Lord does not invalidate their Jewish identity and practice.
.
The worship practices of Messianic Jews resemble those of the synagogue, but their false theology is partial to that of evangelical Christians — who often fund missions to the Jews.
.
No Jews or non Jews never the less should still continue to observe the Torah after embracing Jesus as their Messiah. 
.
Many Messianic Jews call themselves “completed” or “fulfilled” Jews, indicating not only that one can be Jewish and believe in Jesus, but that every Jew ought to.
.
The existence of Messianic Jews makes both Jews and mainline Protestants uneasy, if not angry, betrayed as they tend to be really an antichrist, unkind, offensive, full of hatred, bitterness.
.
As per the Words of Jesus.. no man can serve two masters so you cannot serve Jesus and the devil, the Jewish Antichrist Yeshua.. if you do so  you are clearly double minded,  confused, demonic..
.
The English  Bible still only uses Jesus and not Yeshua.. or what ever. The false need of the Jewish Christian to keep their Jewish identity is a direct result, proof that they have not given up  all to Jesus, as Jesus Christ is not the sole lord of their life still.
.  
.
It seems on many Christians supposedly sites you will find a Jewish Messianic Devil trying to sneak in claiming falsely to be a Christian still today.. and why are they false?
.
They are repeating Messianic Jewish lies only, as there is no such thing as a true Messianic Jew even only Real Christians .
.
Their Yahshua is the Jewish demonic antichrist. Any “Jew” or “Noahide”  (Luciferian, in reality) who claims to be Saved without Jesus commits Blasphemy against Jesus the Christ and against God who sent Him. The claim of being Saved without Christ is Blasphemy because it slanders Christ as a liar by claiming His words in John 14:6 to have been a lie “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  
 .
“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://asposed.wordpress.com/2015/11/08/why-do-most-jews-messianic-jews-reject-jesus-choose-yeshua-instead/
.
“An Antichrist according to John is anyone who denies that Jesus Messiah has come in the flesh (1John 4:3). An antichrist is also anyone who denies the Father and the Son (1John 2:22). The term “Father” means God and the term “Son” means Jesus Messiah. John says that who ever denies the Son (Jesus Messiah) has denied the Father also, but who ever acknowledges (confesses) the Son has the Father also (1John 2:23).
 .
The test of antichrist must be given to the Jews first since the Gospel is to them first. Then the test is given to the Gentiles. The offer of salvation through the New Covenant is a test to see if the soul receiving the testimony will be an antichrist or a Messianic believer. There are many who are antichrist who do not know it. There are many who are antichrist who know it and do not care. These are those out in the world still denying that Jesus is the Messiah and are the ones everywhere trying to blot out his name from the earth. The blot out plot is to either deny his name altogether or to claim it is false and his real name is Yahshua or some other claimed Jewish spelling. One test of antichrist is that if they try to blot out the name of Jesus by any means, they are identified with the beast system even before it is revealed.
.
. As per the Yahwist who do believe the Father’s name is Yahweh and the Son’s name is Yahshua. They falsely believe anyone preaching the name of Jesus is lost and should be regarded as a devil. They side with Talmudic Jews against the Jesus Name people. They agree with the different Messianic Jews groups regarding the alleged restoration of future of bloodline antichrist Jews who keep the Torah. They teach Jewish eschatology and believe their prophecy views teaching that there must be a revival to the Jews but do not see these Jews correctly as antichrist Jews, etc. They teach that if indeed in foreign countries people speak in tongues and say the name of Jesus, that it is not the Holy Ghost but a demon spirit. They use several arguments to try to prove the name of Jesus is pagan or false, which is hypocritical because they accept the name of Yahweh which has a pagan origin itself. The name of God which was revealed to Moses was “ehyeh asher ehyeh” which is said to mean I AM that I AM. When studying the name of Jesus, you can find that it came from that same name as EHYEH.
.
One of the most notorious of the Yahwist’ organizations is the Truth Restoration Ministry headed by Darren Holliday. Mr. Holliday is affiliated with the Assemblies of Yahweh in Bethel, Pennsylvania, where Jacob O’Meyer is the leading prophet. He is no longer with his wife Amanda because his antics and hatred against the name of Jesus appears to have filtered over into his marriage relationship. Mr. Holliday projects the Yahweh attitude exactly, displaying a haughty spirit, is heady and high-minded, is a blasphemer, and who will stop at nothing to join with Talmudic Jews to blot out the name of Jesus from the earth”
.
”The trouble with the Messianic Jews is that most of them falsely still reject the name of Jesus and therefore refer to Him by several names, mostly Yahshua. Many claim that Jews whether they believe Jesus is the Messiah or not, are still God’s people and therefore saved under the Old Covenant that God made with Abraham. They claim the New Covenant is the Old Covenant exactly except one new addition, Messiah Jesus. They believe the Laws of the Old Covenant should be observed today exactly as they were back in the days of Moses and David. They believe in kosher eating habits, keeping the feast days in the book of Leviticus including the Sabbath which they aggressively state is Saturday. They hold to the Old Testament levitical priesthood being still in force and many advocate animal sacrifices (some believe animal sacrifices should wait until the third temple is built). They consistently argue and fight on the side of Talmudic Jew’s for reclaiming all of Jerusalem back so the third temple can be built and God’s Spirit will dwell there again. They are adamantly opposed to replacement theology which teaches that Christ’s Church (Matt. 16:18) replaced the Temple and converts to the Kingdom of God replaced unbelieving Jews as God’s only people. They reject that all Jews must enter Christ’s Church to be accepted by God. The 1948 reinstatement of the nation of Israel to be ordained by God and thus believe this proves Jews are still God’s people whether they believe in Jesus is the Messiah or not. I don’t follow this persuasion because God promise in the Old Covenant to NEVER allow curses to come upon them if they stayed true to Him (which the Holocaust was no blessing). Curses have come upon the Jews because they apostated and refused to return to God the way God prescribed.
.
The Jews as a whole have never repented and turned to God according to the Scriptures, therefore they can only be under the curse until they do. The 1948 establishment of Israel as a nation was based upon rejecting Jesus as the Messiah and accepting the Gospel. They have tried to pass laws for make it illegal to speak and witness the name of Jesus in Jerusalem. So there was no heavenly reason for their restitution in 1948. Basically, the revival of the state of Israel and the soon third temple will be making a path for the antichrist and the book of Revelation says all the world will wonder after the beast. The New Testament clearly makes it evident that we do not need a third temple in Jerusalem for God does not dwell in places made of brick any longer and especially since Revelation states that the New Jerusalem will have no temple. Jesus replaced the temple and He is the only vessel (which includes the Church) in which God’s Spirit dwells . Most Messianic Jews teach that the third temple will be built and the Old Testament Levitical priesthood will be reinstated and this will be ordained by God. They use Old Testament prophetic scriptures, which actually apply to Jerusalem’s second restoration from Babylon shortly before the coming of Jesus Messiah. The claim that when their messiah comes He will rule from a third temple and everyone will eternally keep the Old Testament Laws (all 613 which must include death penalty laws), including animal sacrifices, feast days, kosher eating habits, a Levitical and Aaronic high priesthood. Some Gentile dispensationalist believe animal sacrifices will be offered up to Jesus! These claim that bloodline Jews will have all the high positions of authority over the nations while those in Christ’s Church will just be included in as people with good behavior (Noahides). Messianic Jews are still headed to hell..
.
Jerusalem is the city which rests on seven mountains in the book of Revelation and is therefore the Whore of Babylon. Jerusalem follows the paganism of Talmudism and the Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism. a revival . The Jewish temple and Torah keeping will be reinstated and the Jews will crown an earthly Jewish messiah who will be the antichrist and be supported by a supposedly Jewish False Prophet. .
 .
The Battle of Armageddon will not be a war against Jews but against the Messiah’s Kingdom and against His Saints. Notice Revelation states nothing of the battle being against Jews, it is they who make war with the Lamb, Jesus, but He destroys them all with the brightness of His coming.
.
Actually the New Testament, like a newspaper, merely reflects the true condition of Judaism at that time. If someone could prove that damaging descriptions of Jews never appeared before the New Testament, that would be one thing. But during many centuries prior to Jesus or any Christians, Jews were saying and doing the same things that we find them still saying and doing during New Testament days!   They falsely still do claim that the  Jews were not responsible for the death of Messiah the world. They lie when they say Messianic Jews is actually the first church as the Church was neither Jew nor Greek, but Christian. 
.
  Messianic Jews lie a lot too, they are bullies, brain dead ostriches in denial, racists, slanderers and can’t seem to have a decent discussion with them without their resorting to name calling.. they say ‘ This article is offensive and antisemitic’
 .
 If the New Testament record of their words and works is “anti-Semitic,” is the Old Testament record of the same rebelliousness just as “anti-Semitic”?  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/08/anti-jewish/
.
In the future when “hate” laws are passed, will the undeniably  hate-filled Talmud and some Jewish hate-promoting film studios still    be swept under the rug?
.
  They also still  lie when they  say  ‘ the Catholic church changed the Sabbath and introduced paganism into Christianity ‘ even the observance of Christmas and Easter cause they still do hate Jesus Christ.

.

The false loathing of Christianity is one reason why many especialy jews, Messianc Jews continue to repeat the claim that Christmas is a repurposing of a pagan Roman holiday. The celebration of Saturnalia, which honored the Roman god Saturn, or the Dies Natalis of Sol Invictus, that is the “Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun.” Both of these celebrations were held in the second half of December, making them somewhat close to Christmas. If Christmas was create to supplant Saturnalia, the Christians would have chosen December 17th. Add to that the references I noted yesterday about the December 25th date stretching all the way back to A.D. 200 and you have a very real dating problem with Saturnalia being the origin date for Christmas. Christmas is not a response to a pagan celebration such as Saturnalia but it has Christian roots. 202 to 211 AD mark where Hippolytus ties December 25 to Jesus’s birth

..

A feast to Sol Invictus (the Unconquered Sun) did occur on December 25, but the earliest evidence for it dates from the mid to late 4th century. which is mychafter the Christian practice of Christmas

.

In reality December 25 first became associated with the Nativity, which is how the early church would have referred to the day of Christ’s birth.

.

Much of the thrust of the “pagan Christmas” theory rests on the idea of a Christianized Rome trying to convert a populace that wouldn’t want to give up its secular feast traditions

.

But in reality the marking of December 25 goes much earlier, before this period in Christian history.

.

The ‘ Commentary on Daniel, written just after AD 200, notes that five of the seven manuscripts contain December 25 as the date

.

Hippolytus in 202-211 AD set the date for the birth of Jesus on December 25, because he thought Jesus was conceived 9 months earlier on the Passover, the day in which he also thought the world was created (5500 years earlier), the Vernal Equinox March 25.

.

Clement of Alexandria (193-215 AD) quoted various anonymous sources about the birth of Jesus and roughly agrees with Hippolytus, claiming that Jesus was born in late fall to early winter. Clement’s sources clearly seem to believe that Jesus was conceived on the Passover and was born roughly 9 months later;

.

Augustine wrote ” He was born, according to tradition, upon December the 25th.”

.

The idea of the church randomly choosing a pagan date is a big stretch. If Christians were recognizing the birth of Christ by the beginning of the third century, does it make sense to think that this was rather a fourth century invention to sway the Roman populous over to Christianity?

THE DESTRUCTIVE LIES OF THE HEBREW ROOTS MOVEMENT

Titus 1:10-11
10 For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially THOSE OF THE CIRCUMCISION, 11 whose MOUTHS MUST BE STOPPED, who SUBVERT WHOLE HOUSEHOLDS, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain.

.

The phrase “those of the circumcision” refers to Judaizers – and that is what the Hebrew Roots Movement (HRM) is – a bunch of Judaizers. They don’t like to admit that, but that’s really what they are. And much of the New Testament is devoted to warning Christians about Judaizers. In the past there were groups like the Seventh Day Adventists and the Worldwide Church of God which embraced Judaizing doctrine. But the modern-day manifestation of this heresy, the Hebrew Roots Movement, is particularly destructive. They are particularly aggressive and they spread on the Internet like a cancer

.

h “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her, -how often I wanted to gather your children, the way a hen gathers her chicks together under her wings! But you people did not want it. Look! Your house is abandoned to you.” – Matthew 23:37,38

“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..

.

Christmas marks Christ’s birthday and it honors Him

.

While many falsely legalists, unloving and non Holy Spirit filled persons, still are  also falsely preaching the exact observation of the laws over honouring the spirit of the law.. this is why they do falsely want to insert the old testament falsely into the New Testament to.

.

And if obeying Religion  a Judaic one included can save one from then why was Jesus death required for us to be saved from Hell?

.

The New Testament also does not prohibit pictures of Jesus nor our observing Christmas, Easter..

.
I found out that some of the past leaders of my people lied when it came to science, women, children, non-Jews, and Christianity and its leader. I found out that Jesus is the only Messiah and Saviour for everyone on earth. I found out a lot when I prayed to Jesus and said “If you really are who you say you are in the New Testament, please reveal yourself to me and I will follow and trust you forever.”
.
Guess what. He did and I have been. Sure there are cheap imitations of the real thing (anything of value is counterfeited), but once you really connect with Jesus, you’ll know everything you need to know about salvation—your own salvation! . Not only is genuine salvation free, it makes a person free!”
.

The blessing given to Abraham comes to the non-Jews (Gentiles or Greeks) through faith in Christ Jesus. Natural ancestry doesn’t help or hinder. It is by faith in Messiah Jesus that we receive the promise of the Spirit and become God’s children. Do not be deceived by those that magnify Jewish feast days, ancestry, customs, the Saturday Sabbath and try to get you to observe the law of Moses. They might claim they are just like the early Christians but they are not as has already been proven.

.

We are called to be Christians and not reformed Jews.. Most people have never even firstly had studied, read what the Bible actually says nor have they been taught by the Holy Spirit firstly, not even many preachers. They are mostly parrots repeating what they heard others say. We all do need to study the Bible more seriously.. to be Holy Spirit filled now too

The greatest problem facing the Jew today, whether Rich or Poor, Is that they will not recognize that when the Scepter was removed from Judah, Gen. 49:10, that Shiloh {or Christ} would replace the physical Covenant made with Israel with the Spiritual Covenant; that God mentions in Jer. 31:27-37, it is clear that they are a nation no more, yet the acceptance of Christ and His Gospel will produce Spiritual Israel; And then they can read Isaiah chapters 2, 9, 11, 51, 52, 53, and understand; that it was Christ they Murdered in Cold Blood, and that Judaism is dead. The Jews has never accepted the Gentiles, even though Abraham was a Gentile. Plainly it is a show of ignorance on the part of the Jew; for the Holy Spirit commanded in Eph. 2:8-16 that the Blood of Jesus Christ made them into one nation with the Gentiles. Yet that hatred remains.

.

Messianic Judaism is not just Christianity for Jews or even Christianity in a Jewish context. It is the modern equivalent of the “Judaizers” who plagued the New Testament in the time of the apostles. Today, as then, they attempt to bring both Gentile “proselytes” and Jews into bondage to law. Paul told Peter he “stood condemned” for allowing such Judaizers to again impose the bondage of circumcision. (Galatians 2) But many of today’s Messianic Judaizers want to do much more: impose not just mandatory circumcision on their followers but the entirety of the Old Testament law!

Furthermore God whose Name is Yahweh in Hebrew who became flesh and made Himself known TODAY  by His Greek Name which is Jesus AND is solely  used and applicable,  the Greek Name even meaning Christos, the anointed one who anoints one with the Holy Spirit and not any of the Hebrew names..  No Jews personal  praise   of God is now even accepted by God especially in their   even their unredeemed and  sinful state,  sins now. Their praise do not reach God  as their uncovered  sins  suffocate them. Nor does God approve of the Jews as even  having have any further rights to the promised land anymore as well.. 

.

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”  Even the Messianic Jews are falsely as antagonistic to Christianity as traditional Jews are. For Messianic Jews to respond with such a level of disdain brings to mind the words of Paul, “You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans?” And, “If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.”
.
The Messianic Judaism  is now falsely  obsessed with taking over from both religions, especially Christianity. Messianic Judaism is no longer  a proper conduit especially suitable for spreading spiritual  Christian truth precisely because it has not obtained the status of either Non-Messianic Judaism or real Christianity. Judaism and Messianic Judaism are both embroiled in religious politics and the insatiable desire for wealth and power. Messianic Jews seem to want to wrest power and resources away from Christianity and be corrupted by the same influences that have so greatly hindered Christianity’s effectiveness.
.
If Messianic Jews truly believe in what they practice, what does it matter if Christians, Jews, atheists, or anyone else criticizes them?  Instead of worrying about Jewish acceptance, Messianic Jews should occupy themselves with knowing God and being accepted by Him. Instead of falsely  battling Christians, Messianic Jews should seek to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”[3] and “Love your neighbor as yourself,” for “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Messianic Jews should work on growing spiritually and building each other up, that they may glorify the Lord. “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Instead of their falsely focusing on proving to Christians that the Torah is still in effect.. “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.” Become real Christians not merely still  pretenders, imposters, wolves in sheep clothing.
.
AND WHEN YOU DO NOT DO WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO THESE SAME RATHER LITTLE BAD CHILDREN INSULT YOU, SLANDER YOU, DIVORCE YOU, OSTRACIZE YOU, BAD MOUTH YOU.  And does  God still show false partiality? to the Christians? or to the Jews? Arabs? NO.. they all will reap what they sow, had sowed on this earth as well as here after. Reality

.

Why did so many Jews, Messianic Jews hate Jesus Christ , the Church and persecute the Christians? They will not go to a Christian church falsely too.  Some people have the impression that Jewish hostility for Christianity began only after Jews experienced persecution by Christians. Actually, Jewish hostility toward Jesus Christ and His church has been ongoing for the last 2000 years still. The main problem still is that the Jews hate the  New Testament and the New People of God , the Christians, Apostle Paul too..  even Jesus in reality..  Jews today still have the mindset of Jesus’ enemies in the first century, 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.. I’ve never felt so HATED for being a real  Christian in all my life like I have been by the false Jewish only lovers and Messianic Jews !.

.

Jesus taught that Jewish nationalism and commitment to the “oral law” (“traditions of men”) distorted the purpose of the written law (Torah) (Mark 7:1-20). He declared that Israel’s dominant religious leaders were not in the tradition of Moses, David, and the prophets, but were servants of Satan (John 8:37-44). Their “Judaism” depended on legal righteousness based in “oral law” (the “traditions of men”; see Mark 7:1-23) and “works” that artificially distinguished them from the Gentiles whom they regarded as ritualistically unclean. Adherents of this perspective believed that their legal righteousness would assure them of the future Messiah’s approval when he appeared on the scene to cast off the Roman yoke and institute worldwide Jewish rule.
 .
John the Baptist proclaimed the worthlessness of legalistic righteousness (Matthew 3:1-12), and Jesus declared that the legalistic righteousness of the Pharisees was pitted against the genuine law of God He had come to uphold.
 .
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:17-20 NIV).
 .
Instead of leading them toward fulfillment of the promises God had given Israel, their legalistically based self-righteousness motivated them to reject and kill the Messiah and His followers (Matthew 21:23-46; John 8:42-59; Acts 4-5; 7-9; 12:1f; 13:42-51; 14:2-5; 14:19; 17-18; 24:5; 26:9-11; Galatians 1:11-16; 4:29; Philippians 3:5-7; 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16).
 .
Jesus himself and the Apostles also called into question the meaning of the primary Jewish symbols—Sabbath, food taboos, ethnic identity, ancestral lands, and ultimately the Temple itself..  Jesus was claiming to be speaking for Israel’s God, her scriptures, and her true vocation. Israel was trusting in her ancestral religious symbols; Jesus was claiming to speak for the reality to which those symbols pointed, and to show that, by her concentration on them, Israel had turned inwards upon herself and was being not only disobedient, but dangerously disobedient, to her God’s vision for her, his vocation that she should be the exemplary light of the world. Jesus’ Jewish contemporaries, however, could not but regard someone doing and saying these things as a deceiver. His agenda clashed at every point with theirs. In symbol, as in praxis and story, his way of what being Israel meant, his way of loyalty to Israel’s God, was rightfully radically different from what  theirs.had falsely become. The clash between Jesus and his Jewish contemporaries, especially the Pharisees, must be seen in terms of their false alternative political agendas generated by their false alternative eschatological beliefs and expectations. Earthly Zionism now included. Jesus had definitely announced His kingdom in a way which did not reinforce but rather called into question, the agenda of revolutionary zeal which dominated the horizon of the Jews, especially, the dominant group within Pharisaism. It is not to be wondered at, therefore, that he Jesus had rightfully called into question the great emphases on those symbols which had become the focal points of that zeal: Sabbath, food taboos, ethnic identity, ancestral lands, and ultimately the Temple itself.  The symbols had become enacted codes for the aspirations of his contemporaries. Their Judaic  religion had become a false one. Jesus, thus  in challenging the Jews to His Way , was ‘speaking against the Torah’ per se. He was even  ‘speaking against’ the idea of Israel as the still only chosen people of the one true God.  .

.

Messianic Jews and Christians tend to still even differ as to how they see the forming of  the Christian church. For the Messianic Jews the Church was composed  originally of mainly Jewish speaking Apostles , Jews and is a reformed version Judaism..the New testament was supposedly originally written in Hebrew  even if there is absolutely no sub satiating go it anywhere,  and the  Apostle Paul is disliked cause he betrays Judaism,  But for the Christians the church is composed of Greek speaking apostles and Gentiles ,,and the Apostle Paul is liked cause he helps to bring Salvation to the gentiles..the New Testament was written originally in Greek and there is loads of evidence of this.  Many people fail to realize the significant effect the Greeks and Romans by their conquests had on the language usages in the middle east, the areas of the Greek and Roman Empire, even at the time of Jesus Christ . Now the historical Jesus primarily spoke Greek and Aramaic  perhaps along with some Hebrew  although there is some debate as to the degree? The towns of Nazareth and Capernaum, where Jesus lived, were primarily both Greek and Aramaic-speaking communities? although Greek solely was widely spoken especially in the major cities of the Eastern Mediterranean such as Antioch and Alexandria. Aramaic remained an alternative  common language of Palestine in the 1st century AD, despite the subsequent Macedonian-Greek (331 BC) and Roman (63 BC) invasions?  Indeed, in spite of the increasing importance of Greek, the use of Aramaic was supposedly also expanding, and it would  remain so until the Arab conquest in the 7th century.   Most of the apostles from the Galilee region also spoke Greek, Aramaic. The message of Christianity spread (primarily among Greek  Aramaic-speaking enclaves) throughout Judaea, Syria and Mesopotamia, and even to Kerala, India even in Greek.. as the New testament was written in Greek Forget the Messianic Jews spin doctors,  Messianic Jews  still tend to be liars who tend to hate Christians, the Church..  Look it should be very clear to anyone who reads the Bible honestly the Greek language and a majority of Greek speaking gentiles  was a norm in the early church..

.

The problem with Messianic Jews is..
.
(1 Tim 1:7 KJV) Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
.

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

.

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

.

Acts 1″ 20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.

.
Now as per the lies of the false Zionism, Christian Zionism Movement;  who is really “blessing Israel;” those persons  who are working for peace in the Middle East, or those false persons with a hidden agenda who are agitating for a war designed next to get two-thirds of all Jews wiped out
.
 
ZIONISM IS STILL THE REAL ENEMY OF ALL JEWS AND ALL CHRISTIANS

.

Zionism is a movement that claims to be based on the Bible, but  it is actually contrary to what the Bible teaches. All Christians should repudiate Zionism and should work for a peace settlement in the Middle East that will be of mutual benefit to Abraham’s Jewish and Arab children in Palestine.

It is amazing how new testament Bible ignorant persons falsely dispute the facts about Jews, Israel and Messianic Jews.. The New Covenant, the New testament, has replaced the Old Covenant, the old Testament.. the New Covenant is not a continuation of the old but it’s substitute.  Judaism, plus JEWS   are now dead to God and is Satanic! “…I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” —Revelation 2:9  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/11/12/the-inheritance-of-abraham-a-report-on-the-promised-land/
.

It is ALSO a documented fact that when the Ten Tribes of Joseph, known as “Israel or Ephraim,” were taken into “captivity” in c.800 BCE by Assyria, they ceased to exist as a separate people because they lost their use of their Aramaic/Hebrew language and their sense of Israelite tribal identity. Their Conquests by the Greeks, Romans had helped to further this..   http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2012/02/07/jews-israel-arabs-and-jesus-christ-the-bible/

.

Now after King  Solomon’s death they split into two completely separate and independent kingdoms – the southern kingdom of ‘Judah,’ consisting of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, with part of Levi since the Levites were distributed among the other tribes (1 Kings 12:23) with their capital at Jerusalem, and the northern kingdom of ‘Israel,’ consisting of the other ten tribes (Reuben, Simeon, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Ephraim and Manasseh (Joseph was divided into Ephraim and Manasseh), with part of Levi since the Levites were distributed among the other tribes), with their capital up in Samaria.
     “Israel and Judah were never united again… Surprisingly, they even fought wars against each other from time to time… A very important fact that many do not realize is that Judah, that is, the Jewish people of today, are only one of the tribes of Israel – while all Jews are Israelites, not all Israelites are Jews.
     “Because of their forsaking of Him, God permitted the two kingdoms to be destroyed. First, the northern kingdom of Israel was gradually conquered by the Assyrians,… and by 721 B.C. they had practically all been taken into exile to Assyria (2 Kings 17:1-23). The vast majority of them never returned, and have become known as the ‘Lost Ten Tribes of Israel.’
    “Then, about 135 years later, by 586 B.C., the southern kingdom of Judah was completely conquered by the Babylonians,… and the people of Judah were taken into captivity to Babylon. The original Temple of God in Jerusalem was destroyed at that time… The people of the southern kingdom of Judah however did return after the Babylonians fell to the Persians…, and their descendants have become the Jewish people of today – but that return in the time of Nehemiah, or the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948, were not the fulfillment of the many prophecies dealing with the future (as the context of the prophecies clearly show) gathering of all of Israel, Israel and Judah.”
The designation “Jew” belonged exclusively to the southern kingdom of Judah, the very word “Jew” having been derived from “Judah.”  And so technically, only the kingdom of Judah was “Jewish” and the other tribes of Israel have no right to call themselves Jews. That this distinction was understood in the Old Testament is seen in II Kings 16:5-6 (KJV) where the people of Israel and the King of Syria fought against the “Jews” of the southern kingdom.
In the New Testament, in His message to the Church at Smyrna, the Lord Jesus Christ referred to a “synagogue of Satan” as “them which say they are Jews, and are not.” In other words, there was a synagogue of Israel that was not Jewish:
“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” (Rev. 2:9-10)
The present “Synagogue of Satan” which is Israel must not be confused with the “Remnant” of Jews, who will receive the Lord Jesus Christ at His Second Coming and be saved by Him. The Synagogue of Satan are an occult power elite which, the Zionists driven Jews having rejected Jesus Christ as the Messiah of Israel, conspire to substitute another messiah made in the image of their master, Satan, and to establish a world kingdom under Satan. The Synagogue of Satan claims Jewish descent, but does not fit God’s definition of a Jew, either in the Old Testament or the New: “But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” (Romans 2:29)  the Synagogue of Satan have conspired to eliminate all people, whether Jew or Gentile, who stand in the way of their world kingdom. Through the centuries, the Synagogue of Satan have, by means of false identities, infiltrated Gentile institutions where they act as agents provocateurs—undercover agents who provoke violence and beget scandals, which are used to bring reproach upon Jesus Christ and His Church.   About the Jewish Babylom  “Early in the 19th century the Pope came to the Rothschilds to borrow money. The Rothschilds were very friendly with the Pope, causing one journalist to sarcastically say ‘Rothschild has kissed the hand of the Pope… Order has been reestablished.’ The Rothschilds in fact over time were entrusted with the bulk of the Vatican’s wealth. The Jewish Ency., vol. 2, p. 497 states, ‘It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time (1905) the latter are guardians of the papal treasure.’ Researcher Eustace Mullins writes that the Rothschilds took over all the financial operations of the worldwide Catholic Church in 1823.  Today the large banking and financial business of the Catholic Church is an extensive system interlocked with the Rothschilds and the rest of the International Banking system.” (Top 13 Illuminati Bloodlines, p.154)” During the Middle Ages, the infiltration and conquest of Christendom was achieved by two methods. The Inquisition, which started in Spain in 1478, forced multitudes of Jews to renounce Judaism and to embrace Catholicism; these “converts” were called Conversos. Conversos typically went through the motions of the Roman Catholic religion, but remained Jews inwardly and practiced their Jewish rites in the privacy of their homes. Other Jews, called Marranos (swine), feigned conversion to Christianity and practiced Roman Catholicism outwardly, while practicing Judaism, or Cabalism, privately. A number of Marranos took positions in the clergy. The motive of Conversos was self-preservation; the Marranos, destruction of the Church and all things Christian. The result of these parallel operations was the Jewish occupation of the Roman Catholic Church and the false Jewish Zionist transformation into “MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

JW are not the sheep belonging to Jesus,

jesus (7)

 

Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, persons, civil and public servants, politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc.,
.
Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over

.

It is undeniable that JW is anew religion.. unlike Christianity for the sect known as Jehovah’s Witnesses (JWs) began with Charles Taze Russell in the 1870’s. Russell was raised a Presbyterian, then joined the Congregational church, and was finally influenced by Adventist teachings. By his own admission, he had a hard time accepting the existence of hell. He sought out the Bible, and as his “studies” continued, he systematically began to reject the major doctrines of historic Christianity. He ultimately established his own belief system, and in 1879 he started publishing a magazine to promote his beliefs. This magazine was the precursor to today’s Watchtower (WT) magazine, by which Jehovah’s Witnesses are typically known. The New World Translation (NWT), the JWs’ own Bible version, was created between 1950-61 in several parts, beginning with New Testament (NT). The translation was made by an “anonymous” committee, which transliterated and altered passages that were problematic for earlier JWs. Nathan Knorr, Fred Franz, Albert Schroeder, George Gangas, and Milton Henschel were later identified as the men that created the text, which is used by no other sect. Franz studied non-biblical Greek for two years, and taught himself Hebrew. The rest had no formal training in any biblical language. The text of the NWT is more of a transliteration to fit theological presumptions than it is a true translation. This can be seen in key verses that the WTS changed in order to fit its doctrines.

.

The doctrine that most clearly sets the WTS apart from Christianity is its denial of the divinity of Christ. JWs maintain that Jesus is actually a creature—a highly exalted one at that—but not God himself. Scripturally, the evidence is not in their favor.

.
John 1:1 states unequivocally, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” This verse gave the JWs tremendous difficulty, and so in their own NWT they render the end of this verse as, “And the word was a god.” One great difficulty with this translation is how it contradicts passages such as Deuteronomy 32:39, which says, “I alone, am God and there are no gods together with me.” Further contradictions can be seen in Exodus 20:3, “Have no other gods besides me,” and Isaiah 43:10, “Before me no god was formed nor shall there be any after me.” When a particular translation so clearly opposes other verses in Scripture, one can know immediately that it is inaccurate.
In John 20:28 Thomas says to Jesus, “My Lord and my God.” In the original Greek it literally reads, “The Lord of me and the God of me.” It would be nothing short of blasphemy for Jesus not to rebuke Thomas if he was wrong. Jesus does nothing of the sort, but instead accepts Thomas’ profession of his identity as God.

.

Jesus Christ is God, a part of the Trinity, is the same Jesus Christ to whom every knee should bow to him and every tongue confess that he is Lord ( Php 2:9-11 ; cf. Isa 45:20-23 ). Jesus the Christ and not the Jews is the central focus both in old and New testament , Jesus of Nazareth, who in solemn testimony to the Jews declared Himself the I Am or Jehovah, who was God before Abraham lived on earth, was the same Being who is repeatedly proclaimed as the God who made covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the God who led Israel from the bondage of Egypt to the freedom of the promised land, the one and only God known by direct and personal revelation to the Hebrew prophets in general.; and The divinity of Jesus Christ is indicated by the specific names and titles authoritatively applied to Him; Now there are many names of Jesus Christ and titles of Jesus Christ recorded in the scriptures.

.
The Bible indicates that God alone created the universe (Is. 44:24), and “he that constructed all things is God” (Heb. 3:4). However, Jesus created the heavens and the earth (Heb. 1:10). This passage by itself proves that Jesus is God, since an Old Testament reference to God (Ps. 102:26-28) is now given to him.

.
In John 8:58, Jesus takes the name of God, “I AM” (Ex. 3:15-18), and applies it to himself. Only God may use this title without b.aspheming (Ex. 20:7, Deut. 5:11), and the punishment for someone other than God to use the sacred “I AM” is stoning (Lev. 24:16). Thus in verse 59, Jesus’ audience picked up stones to kill him, because they correctly understood his use of “I AM” as his claim to being God and hence thought he was guilty of blasphemy. This verse also proved to be difficult for the JWs to combat, and so they changed “I AM” to “I have been.” The Greek here isego eimi, which any first-semester Greek student can tell you means “I am.” It should also be noted that it would be rather strange for people to stone Jesus for saying that he “had been.”

.

(Eph 4:14 KJV) That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

.

The following are just some of the names and tiles of Jesus Christ found in the holy scriptures, New Testament in particular :

 
JESUS – The Hebrew yeshua’ or yehoshua’, meaning “Jehovah saves,” is transliterated into English as the name Joshua. In Greek, it became Iesous, thence Iesus in Latin and Jesus in English. Since Jesus was actually Jehovah performing saving work, his name yeshua’, “Jehovah saves,” coincides precisely.

 


MESSIAH – This title comes from the Hebrew meshiach, “anointed one.” Among the Israelites, prophets, priests and kings were anointed, designating them as rightful successors. Commonly, “messiah” referred to a figure awaited by Israel to be her king. Applied to Jesus, the title retains its full sense of “anointed” prophet, priest, and king.

 


SON OF DAVID – Jews expected the Messiah to belong to David’s lineage. Prophets had foretold that a son (descendant) of David would restore Israel’s kingdom to its former zenith (see Isa. 11:1-9; Jer. 23:5-6). According to Matthew 1:1-16, Jesus was descended from David. To the Jews the “Son of David” refers particularly to Messiah’s political aspect as Davidic king.

 


CHRIST – the anointed one- Greek for Messiah (anointed one) is Christos, Christ in English. Thus, “Jesus Christ” joins a name and a title, and means Jesus the Messiah. Christ, Messiah, Anointed One. The title “Christ” or “Anointed One” Gk. Christos “Cristov” occurs about 350 times in the New Testament.. The word christos means a person HOLY SPIRIT anointed . The Greek name for an individual “Christos” rendered “Christ” in Scripture, the basic of the term Christian now as well, comes from the Greek word “chrio” means to anoint with oil, the symbol of the Holy Spirit, one can tell if any person is a Christian cause they also can see the evidence of the holy spirit’s anointing.. so now we all can be anointed one inspectors of all Christians now too. Luke 4:18-19 (Wey) [Jesus:] “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim Good News to the poor; He has sent me to announce release to the prisoners of war and recovery of sight to the blind: to send away free those whom tyranny has crushed, to proclaim the year of acceptance with the Lord.”But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. . . . As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:20, 27; The word christos means a person so anointed and the word chrisma refers to that by which a person is anointed. John uses chrisma in these two verses, not speaking of the object being anointed but of the instrument of anointing. Additionally, we find a word christianos in Acts 11:26, which means “one belonging to the Anointed One,” just as Herodianos would mean “one who belongs to Herod.” As the ultimate Prophet, King and Priest, Jesus Christ was anointed when he began his earthly ministry. This anointing was predicted by Isaiah in Isaiah 61:1 when he said that the Spirit of the Lord would come upon the Messiah. In God’s time, when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, we are told the Holy Spirit came upon him when he came up out of the water. In other words, he was anointed by the Holy Spirit, and that without measure. When Jesus quoted Isaiah 61:1,2 in the synagogue of Nazareth, saying, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,” he was announcing to the people that he was the Messiah prophesied by Isaiah long ago and that the anointing of the Holy Spirit was now resting upon him. Not only is Jesus Christ anointed, but the Bible tells us that every believer in Jesus Christ is also anointed. We are kings, priests, and prophets under the Priest, Prophet and King, the Lord Jesus Christ. We find references to this in many places. John the Baptist said there was another person coming after him, mightier than himself, who would baptize people in the Holy Spirit and fire. In Acts 1:5 the Lord Jesus Christ himself speaks of this, saying, “For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” This was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost, as we read in Acts 2:4: “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” The Greek word for anointing is chrisma, from which we have the word chrism. Chrisma appears several times in 1 John 2:20 and 27. It comes from the root word, chriô, which means to rub something or someone lightly with a substance like oil or lotion. Thus, when John writes in 1 John 2:20, “But you have a chrisma, an anointing,” he was referring to the coming of the Holy Spirit upon every believer.;

 


The Chosen One.- Jesus is referred to as God’s chosen in Luke’s account of the transfiguration ( 9:35 )and by Matthew ( 12:18 ) as he applies Isaiah 42:1 to Jesus. In 1 Peter he is designated as the one “chosen before the creation of the world … revealed in these last times” ( 1:20 ) and as the”living stone—rejected by men but chosen by God” ( 2:4 ). Like his fellow brothers, the Jews he was a chosen one, but now not only a chosen one, but The Chosen One.. He embodies all that Old Testament chosen ones were to have been. .But Jesus refers to his apostles as those whom he has chosen ( John 6:70 ; 13:18 ; 15:19 ), and church is also called God’s “chosen” ( Eph 1:11 ; Col 3:12 ; James 2:5 ; 1 Peter 1:2 ; 2:9 ), by virtue of now also being Christ’s body. The Church, Christian Believers “in Christ” are now rather “chosen” ones and not the Jews. The church is the object of Christ’s love and redemption, called to have fellowship with him and to continue on his anointed work.

 


Jesus is Lord – and he shares with the Father qualities like deity ( Rom 9:5 ),preexistence ( John8:58 ), holiness ( Heb4:15 ), and compassion ( 1 John 4:9 ), to name just a few. He is co-creator ( Col 1:16 ) and co-regent, presiding in power at the Father’s right hand ( Acts 2:33 ; Eph 1:20 ; Heb 1:3 ), where he intercedes for God’s people ( Rom 8:34 ) and from whence, as the Creed states, he will return to judge the living and dead ( 2 Thess 1:7-8 ).Just as it is impossible to overstate the power, grandeur, and goodness and the the glory ascribed in Scripture to the the Son. Therefore Peter tellingly restates “sanctify Christ as Lord” ( 1 Peter 3:15 ; NASB). THE LORD – Since Jews uttered ‘adonai (Lord) instead of the divine name, the Greek Bible (c. 200 B.C.) usually translated yhwh as ho kurios, “the Lord.” Thus, “the Lord,” whether ‘adonai or kurios, equaled “Jehovah.” Not surprisingly, “the Lord” is Jesus’ most common title in the New Testament.

.

Lord Jesus Christ is the sole and all-sufficient Savior of mankind and much more. No other savior is needed besides Him or with Him. That and much more is reflected in the various Jesus’ tiles, names and offices and including but not limited too to his list as well.

GOD – Jesus was not the son of any mortal man. His biological father was God, the Father. As Son of God, Jesus represents the Father and acts as his agent in all things.The phrase”Son of God” (huios theou) is a title used of Jesus to indicate that he is divine in nature, just as the title “Son of Man, The title “Son of God” is used twenty-six times in the Gospels referring to Jesus. He is called Son of God by Satan ( Matthew 4:3 Matthew 4:6 ; Luke 4:3 Luke 4:9 ), by demons ( Matt 8:29 ; Mark 3:11 ; Luke 4:41 ), by John the Baptist ( John1:34 ), by his followers ( Matt 14:23 ; John 1:49 ; 11:27 ; 20:31 ), by angels( Luke 1:35 ), and by a Roman centurion ( Matt 27:54 ; Mark 15:39 ). Jesus on occasion referred to himself with this title ( John 3:18 ; 5:25 ; 10:36 ; 11:4 ) and on other occasions acknowledged its validity ( Luke 22:70 ). After his conversion and call to apostleship, Paul immediately began to declare in the synagogues that Jesus was indeed the Son of God ( Acts 9:22 ). In his letters Paul used the phrase in reference to Jesus, saying he was “designated Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead” ( Rom 1:4 ; cf. 2 Col 1:19 ; Gal 2:20 ). The only other letter in the Pauline corpus to use this title is Ephesians (4:13). It is used in Hebrews ( 4:14 ; 6:6 ; 10:29 ), in the letters of John ( 1 John 3:8 ; 4:15 ; 1 John 5:5 1 John 5:10-13 1 John 5:20 ), and once in the Book of Revelation ( 2:18 ).Jesus Christ is God John 1:1 clearly equates “the word” with God; in 1:14 it becomes clear that “the word” is Jesus. Arguments by Jehovah’s Witnesses and others proposing different renderings of John 1:1 are untenable.

.
SON OF MAN – From his mother Jesus inherited mortality. as a “a son of Adam,” that is, as any mortal man (Dan. 8:17). In the Synoptics references to the Son of Man may be loosely grouped into three categories: those which speak of him as: (1) present with authority and power ( Mark 2:10 Mark 2:27 );(2) suffering rejection and death by crucifixion at the hands of humans as a ransom fo many ( Mark 8:31 ; Mark 9:12 Mark 9:31 ; 10:45 ; 14:41 ); and (3)returning at some future time in glory to judge, and bring the consummation of all things( Mark 8:38 ; 13:26 ; 14:62 ). Son of Man references in John fall roughly into the same categories but with some special emphases.John 3:13 and 6:27, 62 allude to the eternal existence of the Son of Man; 1:51 and 8:28 imply an invisible continuing relation with God not found in the Synoptics; 12:23 and 13:31 speak of his glorification during his earthly life; and 3:13-16 and 6:53 make plain that the Son of Man’s work brings eternal life. Elsewhere in the New Testament the phrase “Son of Man” occurs in Hebrews 2:6,a quotation from Psalm 8:4 which is clearly applied to Jesus. In Revelation 1:13 the Son of Man is in the midst of the (the churches); in 14:14 he sits on a cloud, wearing a golden crown and holding a sharp sickle. Ninety-three of the 106 occurrences of the term “Son of Man” in the Old Testament are in the Book of Ezekiel where it is God’s standard way of addressing the prophet.
Holy One of God. In the Old Testament, “the Holy One of God” is a divine epithet common in the prophets and poetic literature used to communicate the separateness of the Lord. The New Testament applies this name to Jesus on two occasions in the Gospels ( Mark1:24 ; = Luke 4:34 ; John 6:69 ), once in Acts (3:14) and possibly on two other occasions ( 1 John 2:20 ; Rev 3:7 ).

.
The Wisdom of God (1 Cor. 1:24; 2:7,8) Christ is the incarnation of the pre-existent Wisdom of God.
EL – ‘El is not a name, but is the common noun for God in Hebrew (plural, ‘elohim). False Latter-day Saints often use Elohim for the Father, allowing a distinction between members of the Godhead. Nevertheless, in the Old Testament, El and its cognates, such as Elohim and El Shaddai (God Almighty), usually refer to the premortal Jesus, the God (‘el) of the Old Testament.

.
EMMANUEL – Since Jesus was the ancient El, the angel (Matt. 1:23) correctly called his name Emmanuel (Hebrew, ‘immanu’el), meaning El (god) with us.

.
I AM – In Exodus 3:14, Jehovah (Jesus Christ) identified himself as “I AM,” perhaps affirming Jesus as the creator who exists independently of his creation. Scholars see connections between this Old Testament title and Jesus’ many “I Am” statements in the New Testament, for example, “I Am the good Shepherd” (John 10:11, 14), or “Before Abraham was I Am” (John 8:58).

.
SAVIOR – The most sublime of titles, Savior underscores Jesus’ role in the divine plan. Both Old and New Testaments specify that the Savior Jesus Christ is also God (Isa. 45:21-23; Luke 1:47; etc.). Through agony and death suffered for others, Jesus is able to erase imperfections and bestow worthiness, on condition of repentance. Since imperfect beings cannot reside in God’s presence (D&C 1:31), Jesus saves believers from their imperfection, their sins, and their worst selves. (See also, above, the definition of his name, “Jesus.”)

.
THE WORD – (John 1:1-3) . Christ is both the messenger and the message.

.
ALPHA AND OMEGA – Equivalent to the Old Testament term “the first and the last” (e.g., Isa. 44:6), alpha and omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. Just as no letters stand before alpha or after omega, so there are no other gods in this creation other than that represented in Jesus Christ. He encompasses all, from beginning to end; he extends beyond all extremities and categories.

.
Author-Prince. Jesus is called “Author” in Acts 3:15 and Hebrews 2:10;12:2 and “Prince” in Acts 5:31

.

 

.
JWs maintain that only Jehovah God may be prayed to. But Stephen prayed to Jesus in Acts 7:59, and so one must conclude that Jesus is God. Otherwise, Stephen blasphemed while filled with the Holy Spirit (7:55). Now the JWs will assert that Stephen was praying as a result of the vision he originally beheld, where he saw God and Jesus in heaven (verse 55). However, verse 58 says that Stephen was dragged out of the city to be stoned, so clearly the vision had ended, for his stoning took place in a different location and at a later time. It is in the context of this later setting when Stephen clearly prays to Jesus that he might “receive [Stephen’s] spirit.”

.
The WTS would have their followers believe that Jehovah and Jesus are necessarily different beings, though the Bible tells another story. Jesus is called Mighty God in Isaiah 9:6, and in the very next chapter the same title is given to Jehovah in verse 21. Other shared titles include: King of Kings (compare with Rev. 17:14), Lord of Lords (Deut. 10:17; Rev. 17:14), the only Savior (Is. 43:10-11; Acts 4:12), the First and the Last (Is. 44:6; Rev. 22:13), the Alpha and the Omega (Rev. 1:8; Rev. 22:13-16), Rock (Is. 8:14; 1 Pet. 2:7-8), and Shepherd (Ps. 23:1; Heb. 13:20-21).

.
Jesus and Jehovah have much more in common than titles, though. They are both worshipped by angels (Heb. 1:6, Neh. 9:6). They are both unchanging (Heb. 13:8, Mal. 3:6). They both created the heavens and the earth (Heb. 1:10, Neh. 9:6) and are all-knowing (John 21:17, 1 John 3:20). Both give eternal life (John 10:28, 1 John 5:11), and judge the world (John 5:22, Ps. 96:13). To them every knee will bend and every tongue confess (Phil. 2:9-11, Is. 45:23).

.

Consider the question, “Is Jesus Christ really an angel?” He is God not a mere angel.. Angels bow down to Him and worship him.. put the JW on the spot and ask them to show you “the Scriptures” that say Jesus is Michael. There are none.  Ask the Jehovah’s Witness which verses say that Michael is Jesus Christ since there are none they cannot do so too.  Apostle Paul the author of Hebrews states, “To which of the angels did God ever say, ‘You are my son? . . . Let all the angels of God worship him. . . . Your throne, O God, stands firm forever. . . . O Lord, you established the earth, and the heavens are the works of your hands’ . . . to which of the angels has he ever said ‘Sit at my right hand . . . ’” (Heb. 1). Here, the author of Hebrews separates Jesus from angels, and commands the angels to worship him (cf. Rev. 5:13-14,14:6-7). The obvious problem is this: Archangels are creatures, but the Bible forbids any creature to worship another creature. Thus, either the Bible is in error by commanding the angels to worship an archangel, or Jesus is uncreated and cannot be an archangel. Since this gave the JWs a tremendous problem, they even had to change their own Bible translation, called the New World Translation (NWT), to eliminate the references to worshipping Christ. (The 1950, 1961, and 1970 editions of the NWT read “worship” in Hebrews 1:6.) Beyond this, Jesus has the power to forgive sins and give eternal life, but no angel has this capacity.

.

Jesus Christ is “Lord of lords and King of kings” (Rev. 17:14, NWT) and is “far above every government and authority and power and lordship and every name named, not only in this system of things, but also in that to come” (Ephesians 1:21, NWT). Jesus Christ displayed His authority over the devil when He freely commanded him, “Go away, Satan!” (Matthew 4:10, NWT).  Note that the angels consistently refuse worship (“Be careful! Do not do that! …Worship God,” Revelation 22:8,9, NWT), but the Fathers command concerning the Son is, “Let all Gods angels worship him” (Hebrews 1:6). Because Jesus is God

The New Testament Greek always uses the word “Lord,” and never “Jehovah,” even in quotes from the Old Testament (OT). Encyclopedia Judaica, Webster’s Encyclopedia, Jewish Encyclopedia,Encyclopedia Britannica, Universal Jewish Encyclopedia and countless others agree that the title “Jehovah” is erroneous, grammatically impossible, and was never used by the Jews.

.

The WTS teaches that only the anointed 144,000 seen in Revelation 7 will enter heaven (the “anointed class”), while the remainder that are not annihilated (the “other sheep”) will live forever on earth in paradise. However, the Bible poses some irreconcilable difficulties with this idea. If Revelation 7 is to be taken literally, there would only be 144,000 Jewish male virgins taken from a square shaped earth that are now in heaven worshipping a sheep. This would mean that Peter (not a virgin), the Blessed Mother (not a male), and Charles Taze Russell (not a Jew) could not be in heaven. Reading one number literally while taking the rest of a book symbolically is not sound exegesis. Beyond this, we see in Revelation 14 that the 144,000 stand before the 24 elders from Revelation 4:4. This at least brings the grand total to 144,024 people. But, the Scriptures indicate that there are still more to come. Revelation 7:9 speaks of a countless multitude before the throne, which is in heaven (Rev. 14:2-3). Still in the book of Revelation, we read that all those with their name in the book of life are in heaven (Rev. 21:27), while all whose names are not in the book of life are thrown into the pool of fire (Rev. 20:15). There is no third “earthly” class. Jesus reiterates this, and never speaks of two flocks. He has one bride, whose “reward is great in heaven” (Luke 6:23). Paul even exhorts the Christian community, calling them to remember, “As for us, our citizenship exists in the heavens” (Phil. 3:20). The JWs attempt to use verses such as Psalms 37:29 as evidence that the just are to inherit the land forever, which is earth. In context, this refers to inheriting the promised land as a sign of God’s blessing in the Old Testament. But, Hebrews 11:8-16 indicates that there is a homeland better than the promised land on earth, and this is the heavenly one for those who die in faith. The Old Testament patriarchs “publicly declared that they were strangers and temporary residents in the land . . . they are earnestly seeking a place of their own. . . . But now they are reaching out for a better [place], that is, one belonging to heaven. . . . God . . . has made a city ready for them. . . .These [OT men and women] did not get the [fulfillment of the] promise . . . as God foresaw something better for us” (Heb. 11:13-16,39-40). Even the footnote of the NWT makes clear that the “city” spoken of in these verses is the heavenly Jerusalem mentioned in Hebrews 12:22 and Revelation 21:2. But, the Watchtower still maintains that no one that lived before Christ will ever enter heaven. “The apostle Paul in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews names a long list of faithful men who died before the crucifixion of the Lord. . . . These can never be a part of the heavenly class” (Millions Now Living, p. 89). Only the 144,000 elite that all lived after the death of Christ will supposedly go to heaven. Matthew 8:11-12 provides severe difficulties for this idea, since Jesus proclaims, “many from eastern parts and western parts will come and recline at the table with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens; whereas the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the darkness outside. There is where [their] weeping and the gnashing of [their] teeth will be.” No verse could be clearer in declaring that the patriarchs are in heaven. The following verses all demonstrate that Christians go to heaven, and do not remain on earth: 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 3:1; Ephesians 2:6; Colossians 1:4-5; 1 Peter 1:4.

.

According to the WTS, “The man Jesus is dead, forever dead . . . ” (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 5, 454). “We deny that he was raised in the flesh, and challenge any statement to that effect as being unscriptural” (Studies, Vol. 7, 57). Jesus’ fleshly body “was disposed of by Jehovah God, dissolved into its constitutive elements or atoms” (The Watchtower, 9-1-1953, 518). “In order to convince Thomas of who he was, he used a body with wound holes” (You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth, 145). He was raised as an invisible spirit creature, with no physical body (Reasoning From the Scriptures, 214-215).
However, according to Scripture, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is in vain, and you are still in your sins” (1 Cor. 15:17). Jesus makes clear, even before death, that it is his body that will be raised up. He promises to raise up the temple once it is destroyed. “He was speaking about the temple of his body” (John 2:21). After he had risen, he gives the same testimony, “See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; feel me and see, because a spirit does not have flesh and bones just as you behold that I have. . . . Do you have something there to eat?” (Luke 24:39, 41). Jesus insists that Thomas place his finger into his wounded side, so as to prove that he had indeed risen from the dead (John 20:27). There is no question that Jesus had truly risen from the dead. No Christian was under the impression that he was invisibly raised as Michael the Archangel, while God the Father dissolved his natural body. Such a presumption is without historical or scriptural warrant, and the “proof is in the pudding”: Ask the JW to show you a Scripture verse which backs up the WTS’s assertion about God disposing of Jesus’ body. He can’t, because there isn’t one.

.

In contrast to the valid Christian Trinitarian concept of one God in three Persons–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit– the JWs have been lied to, taught to believe that God the Father alone is “Jehovah,” the only true God; that Jesus Christ is Michael the archangel, the first angelic being created by God; and that the Holy Spirit is neither God nor a person, but rather God’s impersonal “active force. Christians now are worshiper of the true God of the Bible, while JWs are lost souls who have been misled by the devil

.

WTS insists that the Trinity is unbiblical and false, they relegate the Holy Spirit to the role of God’s impersonal active force which compels believers to do his will. In fact, they compare the Holy Spirit (which they render as “holy spirit”) to electricity. The Bible begs to differ, though. There are numerous verses in the New Testament which clearly demonstrate both the personality and divinity of the Holy Spirit. For example, in Acts 13:2, the Holy Spirit says, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” In Acts 10:19-20, this “impersonal force” considers himself to be a person. John 16 supports this idea by referring to the Holy Spirit as a “he” 10 times in the same chapter. First Corinthians 12:11 states that the Holy Spirit “wills,” which is an irrefutable attribute of personhood, as is the capacity to love we see demonstrated by the Spirit in Romans 15:30. Scripture also states that the Holy Spirit can: be lied to (Acts 5:3), speak (Acts 10:19-20), hear (John 16:13-15), know the future (Acts 21:11), testify (John 15:26), teach (John 14:26), reprove (John 16:8-11), pray and intercede (Rom. 8:26), guide (John 16:13), call (Acts 13:2), be grieved (Eph. 4:30), feel hurt (Is. 63:10), be outraged (Heb. 10:29), desire (Gal. 5:17) and be b.asphemed (Mark 3:29). Only a person is capable of these.  These examples demonstrate sufficiently that the Holy Spirit is a personal being, and so now one must demonstrate that he is God. Acts 5:1-4 teaches that a lie to the Holy Spirit is a lie to God himself. Isaiah 44:24 insists that God alone created the heavens and the earth, but Job 33:4 and Psalms 104:30 explains that the Holy Spirit created them. Only God is everlasting, and this is likewise an attribute Scripture gives the Holy Spirit (Heb. 9:14). The Jews put Jehovah to the test (Ex. 17:2), and the Holy Spirit takes the words of God, and claims they “tested and tried me” (Heb. 3:9). Unless the Holy Spirit is God, then he is an impostor. Again, in Hebrews 10:16, he claims to have placed his law in man’s hearts, though this was God’s work in Jeremiah 31:33. There is but one Lord (Eph. 4:5), and one Creator (Mal. 2:10), yet both the Father and the Spirit claim they are him (Matt. 11:25 and 2 Cor. 3:17; 1 Cor. 8:6 and Ps. 104:30). Only the Catholic understanding of the Trinity reconciles these passages.
.
JWs falsely deny the immortality of the soul.  Perhaps the strongest contradiction of the WTS doctrine is seen in Christ’s descent to Hades. In 1 Peter 3:19, the apostle tells his audience how Jesus “preached to the spirits in prison.” If the dead were aware of nothing, then his preaching would have been futile. In the OT, the prophet Isaiah speaks of the condition of the dead, “Sheol underneath has become agitated at you in order to meet you on coming in . . . all of them speak up and say. . . . Those seeing you will gaze even at you, saying . . . ” (Is. 14:9-11). These verses indicate clearly that the dead are conscious, and the NT tells the same story. To be absent from the body is not to be unconscious, but rather it enables one to be home with the Lord, according to Paul (2 Cor. 5:8, Phil. 1:23). The body is just a tent, or tabernacle that does not last (2 Cor. 5:1-4; 2 Pet. 1:13), while man cannot kill the soul (Matt. 10:28). In fact, the souls live past the death of the bodies, since John “saw . . . the souls of those slaughtered . . . and they cried with a loud voice, saying . . . and they were told . . . ” (Rev. 6:9-11). Because the soul does not die with the flesh, those in heaven are able to offer our prayers to God (Rev. 5:8), and live in happiness (Rev. 14:13).
.
JW’s falsely also maintains that everlasting punishment is a myth and a lie invented by Satan. Hell is merely mankind’s common grave, and is definitely not a fiery torture, according to them. According to Scripture, if one is in hell, “he shall be tormented with fire and sulfur . . . the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and day and night they have no rest” (Rev. 14:11). This is an “everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matt. 25:41). Jesus tells his listeners of Lazarus and the rich man, where the rich man dies, and is “existing in torment . . . he sees . . . calls out . . . ‘I am in anguish in this blazing fire’” (Luke 16:19-31). As a further illustration, Jesus stated that hell is likened to Gehenna. This “Valley of Hinnom” was located southeast of Jerusalem, and was used as a garbage dump where trash and waste were continuously burned day and night in a large fire. Jesus informs the listeners that hell is like this, “where the maggot does not die, and fire is not put out” (Mark 9:42-48). It is the place where the wicked are sent, and from this “everlasting fire” (Matt. 18:8) will come “weeping and the gnashing of teeth” (Matt. 8:12). Now if hell were “a place of rest in hope” as the WTS teaches, then it is odd that Jesus would choose such contradictory illustrations to convey this. Lastly, Revelation 20 calls hell a “pool of fire . . . [where] they will be tormented day and night, forever and ever”—all who are not in the book of life. So, if one’s name is in the book of life, one enters heaven (Rev. 21:27). If it not in the book, then a literal hell awaits.

and most of Christianity would agree here with me, 2 billions of them too..

JW do alter biblical texts falsely according to their doctrinal bias, cult teachings . The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (WTBTS) has inserted numerous changes into a proper translation of the Bible in an effort to validate the non-Christian doctrines of the Jehovah’s Witnesses (JWs). Consequently, they claim that their New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures(NWT) is superior to all others. Such as Genesis 1:2
“Spirit of God” changed to “God’s active force.”
The revision modifies the original noun with a more impersonal form as the JWs reject the orthodox Christian belief in the personality of the Holy Spirit.
Exodus 3:14
“I am” changed to “I shall prove to be.”
The revision clouds the connection between God’s self proclaimed title and Jesus’ proclamation of being the same in John 8:58, as the JW rejects the deity of Jesus.
Numbers 1:52
“Under his own standard” changed to “by his [three-tribe] division.”
The Hebrew word degal translated as “standard” literally means flag or banner. Since the JWs regard saluting a flag as an act of idolatry, the text has been altered according to their doctrinal bias. (Same revision found in Num. 2:2, 3, 10, 18, 25; 10: 14, 18, 22, 25.)
Isaiah 43:10
“Nor will there be one after me” changed to “after me there continued to be none.”
The original future tense of the verb indicates that there will never be another being sharing in God’s divinity. The altered tense suggests credibility to the JW doctrine of Jesus’ becoming a “mighty god” while still being less than Jehovah in nature.
Matthew 2:11
“Bowed down and worshipped him” changed to “did obeisance to it”
The JWs evade recognizing Jesus as worthy of worship as a divine being by altering the form of honor that he receives from men and angels. The Greek word proskuneo literally means “worship.” The use of “obeisance” is a NWT adaptation. (Same revision found in Matt. 8:2; 9:18, 14:33; 15:25; 28:9, 17; Mark 5:6; 15:19; Luke 24:52; John 9:38; Heb. 1:6.)

.

Examples of JW lies

I Timothy 4:1
“The Spirit” changed to “the inspired utterance.”
This revision attempts to obscure the reality and activity of the Holy Spirit by representing it as a message instead of an entity. (Similar revisions found in 1 John 4:1, 3, 6 with “expression” being utilized in place of “utterance.”)
Titus 2:13
“Our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” changed to “the great God and of [the] Savior of us, Christ Jesus.”
Similar to the Rom. 9:5 revision shown above, a distinct proclamation of Jesus as God is obscured by the altered text. (Similar rewording also found in 2 Peter 1:1.)
Hebrews 1:8
“Your throne, 0 God” changed to “God is your throne.”
The revision avoids addressing the Son, Jesus, as God to validate the JWs’ rejection of his divine nature.
Hebrews 9:14
“The eternal Spirit” changed to “an everlasting spirit.”
Similar to the Rom. 2:29 revision above, the switching of the article before the adjective represents the work of the Holy Spirit in a more indirect/ impersonal manner.
Hebrews 12:9
“Father of our spirits” changed to “Father of our spiritual life.”
Similar to the I Cor. 14 revision shown above, this one tries to obscure the distinctive reality of human spirits by replacing them with a more abstract noun.
Hebrews 12:23
“The spirits of righteous men” changed to “the spiritual lives of righteous ones.”
This revision represents the same noun-switching as described in Heb. 12:9 above.

plus
1 Corinthians 12:11
“As he determines” changed to “as it wills.”
The NWT finds many ways to disguise the personality of the Holy Spirit. In this case the third person pronoun exercising individual conscience and will is replaced with an impersonal pronoun.
1 Corinthians 14:14-16
“Spirit” changed to “[gift of the] spirit.”
Like several other Biblical passages, this one indicates the distinctive presence of the human spirit as distinguished from the mind and body. The JWs evade these distinctions and try to disguise them with related revisions.
1 Corinthians 15:2
“By this gospel you are saved” changed to “through which YOU are also being saved.”
Similar to the Acts 16:30 revision above, this one again obscures the completeness of salvation by grace. The JW’s salvation exists as an extended process (“being saved”) with the outcome being uncertain until final judgment before Jehovah.
Galatians 6:18
“Your spirit” changed to “the spirit YOU [show].”
Similar to the I Cor. 14 revision above, this one attempts to obscure the reality of the individual human spirit by presenting it more as an attitude of action than an entity.
Philippians 1:23
“To depart and be with Christ” changed to “the releasing and the being with Christ.”
Paul’s eagerness indicates that the believer’s spirit goes immediately into Christ’s presence at death. The revision suggests that death and being with Christ are two separate steps in an extended process, as the JWs believe in soul sleep (i.e., the unconscious state of the human spirit awaiting the resurrection).

plus
Romans 8:29
“Those God foreknew” changed to “those whom he gave his first recognition.”
The revision obscures the nature of God’s knowledge and power as a first recognition may or may not be foreknowledge.
Romans 9:5
“Christ, who is God over all, forever praised!” changed to “Christ, [sprang] according to the flesh: God who is over all, [be] blessed forever.”
The direction proclamation that Christ is God is obscured by the altered text.
Romans 10:13
“Lord” changed to “Jehovah.”
This revision obscures the fact that the Lord referred to in verse 13 is the same Lord called Jesus in verse 9. Since the JWs reject the deity of Jesus, the revision is made accordingly.
The Greek word, kurios, translated “Lord” has been revised to “Jehovah” over 200 times in the NWT. The JWs insist that this is the only valid title for God, even though Greek-speaking Jews used “Lord” and “God” in place of “Yahweh” (the source of “Jehovah”) throughout their Septuagint translation of the Old Testament. Furthermore, the Bible contains dozens of names for God other than Lord, Yahweh, or Jehovah.
Romans 13:1
“Authorities that exist have been established by God” changed to “authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God.”
Since the JW regard saluting a flag, military service and similar forms of submission to government as idolatry, they have added words to the text to weaken the proclaimed authority of government.
1 Corinthians 6:19
“Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit” changed to “the body of YOU people is [the] temple of the holy spirit.”
To avoid recognition of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the individual believer, the revision modifies “body” to a more collective form in harmony with the opposing JW doctrine.
1 Corinthians 10:4
“The Rock was Christ” changed to “that rock-mass meant the Christ.”
The passage depicts the preincarnate Jesus exhibiting his divine nature by being present many centuries earlier. This revision tries to conceal his eternal nature with a more figurative interpretation of “the Rock.”

and
Acts 4:12
“Be saved” changed to “get saved.” The revision avoids recognizing that an individual commitment to Jesus provides immediate and complete salvation, as the JWs believe in an alternative salvation as prescribed by their organization. (Same revision found in Acts 16:30-31.)
Acts 10:36
“Lord of all” changed to “Lord of all [others].”
The revision suggests that even though Jesus is highly honored, he is still one among many of God’s created beings. (Similar revisions found in Rom. 8:32; Phil. 2:9; Col. 1: 16-17.)
Romans 2:29
“By the Spirit” changed to “by spirit.”
Although the definite article ‘the” does not literally appear in the Greek, it is implied by the form that (pneuma) appears in. The revision, however, translates pneuma in a more abstract form to evade the reality of the Holy Spirit. (Same revision found in Rom. 15:19; Eph. 2:22; 3:5; Titus 3:5; James 2:26; 2 Peter 1:21.)
Romans 8:23a
“Have the firstfruits of the Spirit” changed to “have the firstfruits, namely the spirit.”
This represents another form of disguising the separate personality of the Holy Spirit as in Rom. 2:29 above. The original text refers to the derivatives of the Spirit, but the revision identifies the spirit as a derivative.
Romans 8:23b
“The redemption of our bodies” changed to “the release from our bodies by ransom.”
This revision avoids the suggestion that there is continuity of either body or soul after death. Their teaching that the soul ceases to exist at the death of the body precludes the ownership of, or relationship to, a body that must be redeemed.
Romans 8:28
“All things” changed to “all his works.” The revision undermines the sovereignty of God by suggesting that He controls only the things He is directly involved in doing.

Plus
ohn 6:56
“Remains in me” changed to “remains in union with me.”
The mystical union between the individual human spirit and the Spirit of Jesus is obscured by restructuring “in” with a compound form. The substitution implies more separation between a Christian and Jesus. (Same revision found in John 14:20; Rom. 8:1, 2, 10; 12:5; 2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 3:28; Eph. 1:13*; 2:10, 13, 15, 21, 22; 3:6;Col. 1:14*, 16*, 27; 2:6, 10*, 11, 12*; 3:3; 1 Thes. 4:16; 5:18; 1 John 3:24; 4:4; 5:20. Verses with an asterisk (*) indicate where the revision uses “by means of” or “in relationship to” rather than “in union with.”)
John 8:58
“I am” changed to “I have been.”
Same intent as described in Exodus 3:14 above.
John 14:17
“Beholds him or knows him” changed to “beholds it or knows it.”
The revision ignores the context of the pronoun with the Comforter role in the preceding verse to deny the personality of the Holy Spirit.
John 17:5
“Glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you” changed to “glorify me alongside yourself with the glory that I had alongside you.”
The original text reflects the shared deity of God the Father and Jesus before the creation of the world, but the revision suggests different natures as implied by different states of glory.
John 17:21
“Are in me” changed to “are in union with me.”
The original statement by Jesus indicates his shared deity with the Father. The revision undermines this by suggesting a greater separation between them.
Acts 2:17
“Pour out my Spirit” changed to “pour out some of my spirit.”
The revision evades recognition of the Holy Spirit and His activity at Pentecost by suggesting an impersonal force activated to a more limited degree by God.
Acts 2:42
“Breaking of bread” changed to “taking of meals.”
The passage demonstrates the frequency of the communion sacrament among the earliest Christians. The revision is an attempt to disguise this practice as the JWs teach that communion is reserved for only the 144,000 special saints. (Same revision found in Acts 20:7.)

and
Matthew 5:19
“Least in the kingdom of heaven” changed to “least in relation to the kingdom of the heaven.”
The passage indicates that a disobedient believer who sins can still find forgiveness and eternal life. The JWs believe heaven is reserved for only 144,000 specially designated servants of God. The revision suggests more separation between these groups through a status hierarchy.
Matthew 25:46
“Eternal punishment” changed to “everlasting cutting-off.”
The Greek word kolasis translated “punishment” indicates continuous torment, but the NWT revision suggests “termination,” as the JWs promote the doctrine of annihilationism regarding condemned souls.
Mark 1:4
“Baptism of repentance” changed to “baptism [in symbol] of repentance. ”
Nothing in the original Greek text justifies the insertion of “in symbol.” The revision undermines the significance of John the Baptist’s ministry, the Jewish meaning of baptism and the Christian sacrament of baptism in contrast to the more regimented JW baptism requirements.
Luke 12:8
“Acknowledges me” changed to “confesses union with me.”
The addition of “union” suggest something more than what the original Greek actually states and adds further credibility to the NWT distortion presented in John 6:56 below.
Luke 23:43
‘Today you will be with me” changed to “I tell you today, You will be with me.”
Jesus assured the thief on the cross that their spirits would soon enter the spiritual/heavenly realm together. As the JWs reject the belief in the conscious survival of the human spirit after death, their revision suggests that “today” deals with the time of the statement rather than the relocation of their spirits.
John 1:1
“Word was God” changed to “Word was a god.”
The JWs reject the orthodox Christian belief in the deity of Jesus. The revision asserts that Jesus was someone other than God Himself.
John 1:12
“Believe” changed to “exercise faith.”
The orthodox Christian doctrine of spiritual justification and rebirth before God by belief in Jesus is in conflict with the JW doctrine of salvation by works (i.e., obedience to their organization). The revision attempts to describe salvation as a continuous process rather than a radical encounter and transition (Same revision found in John 3:16, 18; 6:29; Rom. 4:3, 10:4, 9, 10.)

Following the Bible, the teaching of Christ and following the Holy Spirit are not necessarily the same.. as one can be a carnal Christians in contrast to to a Holy Spirit anointed Christian. As a Christian you can be surrounded by Bibles and even other Christians, be in a church even, and still be not filled with the Holy Spirit. Or you can even be alone, but still be Spirit-filled. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/the-bible-and-the-greek-language/

.

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.

To be spiritual must I know Greek or Hebrew?

.

Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be dishonestly motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) The name Jesus, as found in several modern languages, is derived from the Latin Iesus, a transliteration of the Greek Ἰησοῦς (Iesous).[Jesus (/ˈdʒiːzəs/; Greek: Ἰησοῦς Iesous; 7–2 BC to 30–33 AD), also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth, is the central figure of Christianity (the world’s largest religion),[ whom the teachings of most Christian denominations hold to be the Son of God. Christianity holds Jesus to be the awaited Messiah of the Old Testament and refers to him as Jesus Christ, a name that is also used in non-Christian contexts.Since early Christianity, Christians have commonly referred to Jesus as “Jesus Christ The word Christ is derived from the Greek Χριστός (Christos ] meaning the “anointed”
.
Of the three languages that Jesus might have spoken: Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic now the Hebrew for sure is the least likely..Aramaic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew, Arabic, and other similar languages and so some people still do claim this was Jesus main language but they cannot prove this.. Even if some grave inscriptions around Jerusalem are in Aramaic, not Hebrew. The widespread use of Greek or Aramaic among even the Jews is a fact, but Aramaic was one of language of the people, though many people at the Time of Jesus would get along in Greek mainly. Not in Hebrew.
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. Greek was the common language of the Roman Empire.
.
Would people in Nazareth have spoken Greek? Yes many of them would have been familiar with Greek and used it in their businesses. In fact, Nazareth was a short walk from Sepphoris, one of the major cities of Galilee, where Greek would have been the everyday language of the marketplace. As a craftsman living near Sepphoris, Jesus had to know Greek to do business with the people there. It is difficult to the extreme to interpret from the fragmentary evidence available and draw conclusions for the use of any Hebrew language in late second-temple Galilee.
.
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 story suggests more immediate communication, which would have been in Greek. The same could be said about Jesus’ conversation with Pontius Pilate prior to his crucifixion (Matthew 27:11-14; John 18:33-38). Now the telling of the story points to a Greek-speaking Jesus. (Pilate would have used Greek, not Latin, as it’s unlikely that he would have known or used Aramaic. Pilate for sure was not the sort of man who would stoop to use an other language .
.
Yes it very reasonable to assume that Jesus did speak Greek and The earliest manuscripts of the New Testament Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – are written in Greek .
Many Jewish writings from the era of Jesus were written in Greek, including works such as 2 Maccabees and 1 Esdras. Other Hebrew writings were being translated into Greek in Jerusalem (the book of Esther, for example, in 114 B.C.). Speaking of Jerusalem, scholars have found some ninety Greek inscriptions on ossuaries (boxes for bones) that date to around the time of Jesus and were found in or around Jerusalem.
.
Ever since Alexander the Great conquered Judea in 332 B.C., Greek had been the language of government and, increasingly, commerce and scholarship. Greek was undeniable as the main 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. in their business and travels to the other cities of the Roman empire too.
.
The presence and pervasiveness of Greek in Judea is demonstrated by a discovery in the Nahal Hever region of the Judean Desert near the Dead Sea. In a cave, a scroll was found that contains substantial portions of the minor prophets in Greek. The so-called Nahal Hever Minor Prophets Scroll, dated around the time of Jesus, shows the influence and popularity of Greek, even among highly religious Jews.
.
One can uphold the inerrancy of Scripture and also still believe that Jesus spoke Greek.
.
For those of you who have become fascinated by — or perhaps deceived would be a better word for it — the idea of trying to discover if you have any Jewish or Hebrew roots of Jesus, the New testament.. no one can prove what it is.. there are less than 3 books from the time of Christ available about Jesus, and the JW plus the Jewish Messianic Parrots are still some of the Biggest liars .
.
There is really no need for anyone to try to impress me with how pro-Israel Jesus once was.. He is no longer pro Jewish, Pro Israel..he became an ex Jew like all the Apostles. So now even I really don’t care about the subject of Jews.. and their Hebrew language… because I am not Jewish. I am a New Testament Christian who strives to follow the pattern of the First Century Church.
.
It can be generally agreed that the historical Jesus primarily spoke Greek perhaps along with some Hebrew and Aramaic (although there is some debate as to the degree). The towns of Nazareth and Capernaum, where Jesus lived, Greek was widely spoken as in the major cities of the Eastern Mediterranean such as Antioch and Alexandria. Jesus may have also known enough Hebrew to discuss the Hebrew Bible, and he may have known Koine Greek a common language of the Eastern Mediterranean after the Macedonian-Greek (331 BC) and Roman (63 BC) invasions. Indeed, Most of the apostles from the Galilee region also spoke Greek . SO THE HEBREW LANGUAGE AT THE TIME OF JESUS FOR ALL PURPOSES DIDN’T EXIST?
.
Jews falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Hebrew as a support for the truth of Judaism A few scholars believe that people in Nazareth spoke Hebrew as their primary language. This is possible, but unlikely. Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) So what evidence do we have that Jesus spoke Hebrew? We do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew As one who believes about Jesus all the things orthodox Christians do, it would not impact my faith one jot or tittle if Jesus spoke Hebrew rather than Aramaic, or Greek rather than Hebrew but the truth is Jesus spoke Greek still..
.
Now, you don’t have to spend the next several years learning ancient languages because English KJV translation of the biblical text is very much reliable it was based on the Tyndale translation of the Greek too..The question of Jesus’ primary language is settled if we knew what people in Nazareth in the first decades of the first century A.D. were speaking and the Romans made it clear.. Greek or Latin only.. and we have no evidence for the common use of Hebrew in Nazareth and the surrounding region of Galilee.it is worth nothing that Greek was commonly used in certain strata of Galilean society. This began when Alexander the Great conquered the region in 332 B.C. Under his rule, and under the rule of those who followed him (the Ptolemies and the Seleucids), Greek was the language of government and commerce. The Romans used Latin for official communication, but Greek was the common language of the Empire. In fact, Nazareth was a short walk from Sepphoris, one of the major cities of Galilee, where Greek would have been the everyday language of the marketplace.The earliest manuscripts of the New Testament Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – are written in Greek. Yes there is overwhelming evidence, both historical and linguistic that shows that the New testament 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 first solely in Greek.

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas. some not too well hidden even. Sadly some people they tend present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness for they tend to falsely have a hidden agenda, one of which is that often they want to get rich, and /or live in the kingdom of self, to be falsely personally worshipped and still live in sin too.
Jehovah’s witnesses are very strongly cultic in both doctrine and behaviour, thus fitting both categories of false doctrine and mind control. They believe that all true Christian churches are of the devil.
 .
They believe Jesus is not God, but is the Archangel Michael – the first being created by God.
They deny that God is a Trinity.
They believe Jesus died on a stake, rather than a cross.
They deny that Jesus rose bodily from the dead.
They believe that ony 144,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses will go to heaven. The rest will live forever in a paradise on Earth, never meeting the person who died for them – Jesus Christ.
They believe that salvation is impossible outside of the Watchtower.
They are not allowed to question the Watchtower leadership or teaching.
They claim you need to read the Watchtower’s magazines and other material in order to understand the Bible correctly. If you don’t read the Watchtower’s books, you will “fall into darkness” – what they call reverting to normal Christianity.
They have falsely predicted the end of the world five times.
They have just changed a major Watchtower prediction that the end of the world would come before the generation of Witnesses born before 1914 died. They are encouraged to visit homes for at least 10 hours per month distributing Watchtower materials.
They use their own special translation of the Bible which mistranslates the original texts.
They are well known to disown, shun, and ignore any friends and family leaving the cult.
They discourage tertiary education.
They are not allowed to be in the army or wear crosses.
They are not allowed to celebrate birthdays.
They are not allowed to celebrate Christmas – the date we celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ. http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Cults/jw.htm

The internet is full of people with false, hidden agendas, liars,,, who have all kind of false motives for their false teachings.. JW Yeah your topic.. is sucker bait to reach people.. you are not a real Christian so what are you teaching…
A) you say that “I profess my faith in the living God” – who? Jesus Christ.. who was God form the foundation of the world, a part of the trinity?
B ) or the Jesus who became a god?
C) and there is no trinity?
D) Do you also now believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit still exists even today?
E) that the Holy Spirit is God, a person, is part of the trinity? Like real Christians do…
F) and do you believe this John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe .8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.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:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. ( Jesus was not a god but the God)..

Are you a false Watchtower slave?

.

JW do not  follow the real Jesus It is always evident that the semostly still liars, people claiming to be good persons, who try to enforce the one way rules on others, those even they do not practice, are still just liars and hypocrites.. and of course they do not want you to judge them, to know and expose this to any others.. But a person is known by the company they keep.. One having bad company leads to one going to hell too.. tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are now.. a person is also know by what he does, and the values he or she have.. some people have bad values, some people falsely go extreme with good values..

.

Falsely inserting Jehovah into the New Testament is an unacceptable Bible manipulation The effect is an inaccurate understanding of what Jesus taught. How did Jesus instruct the disciples to refer to God? Jesus repeatedly instructed his followers to address God as our Lord or our Heavenly Father (Mt 6:8-18, 7:21, Mk 14:36) and this is the way Jesus followers refer to God if they wish to follow Jesus example. In the Lord’s Prayer Jesus said to pray “Our Father in the heavens”. http://jwfacts.com/pdf/the-tetragrammaton-and-the-christian-greek-scriptures.pdf

.

There is much evidence that YHWH never appeared in the New Testament. Most obvious is the absence of YHWH in any of the 5,000 discovered Greek New Testament manuscripts. When adding the word Jehovah to the New Testament the Watchtower lies . This is a serious misrepresentation of scripture. Doctrine should be formed by scripture; scripture should not be changed to support doctrine. Inaccurately inserting the word Jehovah into the New Testament changes the meaning of Jesus message to his followers in a number of ways.

One important affect is that the Watchtower attempts to use the word Jehovah to falsely prove that only Jehovah’s Witnesses will be saved. it is very clear that;
-Jesus is the name borne witness to.
Acts 9:15 “But the Lord said to him: “Be on your way, because this man is a chosen vessel to me to bear my name to the nations as well as to kings and the sons of Israel.”
Acts 1:8 “YOU will be witnesses of me (Jesus) both in Jerusalem and in all Ju·de´a and Sa·mar´i·a and to the most distant part of the earth.”
-Jesus is the name used to expel demons.
Mark 9:38-39 “John said to him: “Teacher, we saw a certain man expelling demons by the use of your name and we tried to prevent him, because he was not accompanying us.” But Jesus said: “Do not try to prevent him, for there is no one that will do a powerful work on the basis of my name that will quickly be able to revile me;”
-Jesus is the subject of the kingdom good news.
Galatians 1:7 “But it is not another; only there are certain ones who are causing YOU trouble and wanting to pervert the good news about the Christ.”
-Jesus name invokes persecution, yet Jehovah’s Witnesses claim their persecution in the Name of Jehovah fulfills prophecy.
Matthew 24:9 “Then people will deliver YOU up to tribulation and will kill YOU, and YOU will be objects of hatred by all the nations on account of my name.”
-Jesus name alone is the means of salvation.
Acts 4:10-12 “… let it be known to all of YOU and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ the Naz‧a‧rene′, whom YOU impaled but whom God raised up from the dead, by this one does this man stand here sound in front of YOU. This is ‘the stone that was treated by YOU builders as of no account that has become the head of the corner.’Furthermore, there is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved.””

As their name implies, Jehovah’s Witnesses predominant focus is on preaching about Jehovah whilst the message of the New Testament was to be witnesses of Jesus.
The false huge emphasis of the Watchtower on the name Jehovah detracts from the constant New Testament message of the Christ. Even when quoting scriptures such as Acts 4 the Watchtower manages to deflect attention from Jesus to Jehovah.

.
Now real Biblical repentance evident and it includes s admitting one sins to God, stopping and consciously turning away from them, turning back toward God, and personally accepting Jesus Christ finished work, forgiveness for them. True repentance is confession, contrition, change; replacement and it involves the whole person, Our Body, Soul, Spirit. It is also a personal, ongoing event. It is visible to all now too..

.
(Rev 18:4 KJV) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Rev 18:5 KJV) For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

.
Mat 7:16 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..

Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. “

The following is a list of twenty-two cult characteristics that will enable anyone to determine in five minutes what is and isn’t a cult.
•If the leader or leaders write their own material and claim that it is from God or “inspired by God” or “from the mouth of God” then they are a cult.
•If the leadership tells you that you can’t read anything written by any other church or religion and only can read what they write then it is a cult.
•If you are forbidden to speak to or read anything written by someone who has left the group for reasons of conscience or belief then it is most definitely a cult.
•If the leadership has to write its own version of the Bible and call it “improved” or “more accurate” and the use of that “translation” is unique to that religion then it is most definitely a cult.
•If personal choice and independent thought is considered to be “evil” then it is most definitely a cult.
•If asking difficult questions is discouraged then it is most definitely a cult.
•If, when finding a particular question difficult or impossible to answer you are told to just “have faith” or “wait on the Lord” then you are probably in a cult.
•If it is forbidden to disagree either privately or openly with the leadership on any point then it is most definitely a cult.
•If you are encouraged to sever ties with anyone not affiliated with your religion then it is most definitely a cult.
•If the group actively solicits membership it is probably a cult.
•If an interested person is only given enough information to pique their interest but not enough information to scare them away then it is most definitely a cult.
•If you are told to teach just “the good stuff” during the initial phase of a person “studying” with you then you are most definitely in a cult.
•If there are aspects of your teaching that are purposely kept hidden until the student is very far along in the indoctrination process then you are most definitely in a cult.
•If the members are instructed to be especially nice to new visitors then it is probably a cult.
•If the leadership teaches that they are the only ones with “the truth” and that everyone else is deceived then you are in a cult.
•If the members are encouraged to turn other members in for infractions then it is 100% most definitely a cult.
•If you are given a litany of rules and regulations to follow then you are most definitely in a cult.
•If your schedule is booked with group activities to the point that you have little or no time to yourself then you are most definitely in a cult.
•If you are told to have little or nothing to do with anyone, including close friends and family members, who choose to leave the group, then you are most definitely in a cult.
•If your leadership is nameless, mysterious, aloof, unapproachable, unaccountable or otherwise “nebulous” then you are most definitely in a cult.
•If your leadership doesn’t have to report their income to you or the government then you are most definitely in a cult.
•If higher education is considered evil and strongly discouraged by the leadership then you are most definitely in a cult.
How many of the above characteristics hit your religion? If it was more than five then you are probably in danger of being in a cult.
If you answered yes to ten or more than you are most definitely in a mind control cult.

Face it one now being any kind of a Control freak is a big, bad unacceptable disease.. and it must be treated as such.. Control freaks do often have a terrible personal, social life too and they do often make all life terrible for those they live with, marry, work with, come in contact with. Everyone needs to set boundaries on what is acceptable behavior. No verbal abuses, no bullying, no lying, no foul languages, no slandering by the clearly control freaks too

.

The clear signs of the Control freaks for your -diagnosing pleasure.
1 They try to “help them” change by pointing it out, usually over and over.
2 They try micromanage others to make them fit their often unrealistic expectations. They can’t accept others imperfection they don’t think anyone else should either.
3 They continually judge others’ behavior as right or wrong and without love, passive-aggressively withhold attention, contact until they fall in line with their demands, expectations. Sitting in silent judgment an other form of control.
4 They offer “constructive criticism” as a veiled attempt to advance their own agenda.
5 Instead of just being themselves , they attempt to deceive others by projection of their false impression of them selves
6 Fear mongers, threateners and manipulators.
7 Know it all.
8 They intervene on behalf of others by trying to explain or dismiss their negative behaviors to others.
.
“Arguing with the control freak seldom works. Why? Because they are an expert at justifying to themselves and everyone else why they are right. They are world authorities in being “right”. They have spent whole lifetimes practicing “being right”. So trying to out-argue them can be nigh on impossible.”
.
Simply walk away – let them try rather to control others

.

Most of these people with their negative personality disorders specifically the immoral persons, liars, control freaks may even not perceive that there is anything wrong with their behavior and thus they are not motivated to change it. It is important to note that these personality disorders are considered to have their onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and they alone are responsible for it too.
.
Again false Denial, it is very very common when many an individual are openly confronted with the truth they do not like so that they resort to a false denial. When confronted with the truth the denier they often respond with a similar personal counter attack remark as ”you are crazy”. “I reject your reality… and substitute my own.” Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about themselves still though. Sadly it is a negative natural human tendency to devolve into denial.” It’s not just a moral compass that’s lacking, but the ability to honest, or to stand apart. Denial often comes out of a false pride, a fear of being openly exposed as being wrong. Denial is a false convenient escape, excuse for inaction for persons now facing a situation that requires a decision or action that conflicts with his or her established past policy. Denial too often can be further disastrous upon themselves and others.. for denial is not seeing data at all or seeing it and coming to an erroneous conclusion within oneself. One’s false denial is often based on their own severe personal failure next due to a personal disconnect with real life. Illustrated fully by the story of the Emperor with new clothes.

.

Too many persons now they are trying to change others when they firstly do need to be changed.. While in reality God has made us all equal, and GAVE US ALL MOUTHS WE CAN SPEAK WITH, EARS TO LISTEN, it seems some people, in churches, on the net, elsewhere, they still wrongfully do think they are better than others, or want to dominate others, do try to give orders to others, do try to make rules for others that they too often themselves do not follow too, they are in fact still bullies.. and now why is that? and who do they think they are now that they are so special? Mere fools. They mostly have a hidden agenda, they are falsely seeking fame, power, control, a position of prestige, for they are immoral slave drivers trying to walk on the back of others . Many people have their own false images, scenarios, and refuse to see the truth of what is going on and in denial to the truth, these people they next even do falsely say anything, lies, slander included.. these people are the ones who need help. It is a COMMON fact of life, particularly among the young, inexperienced, really bad persons who really hate the truth or they cannot handle serious , heavy negative realities that false denial, ostrich approach is a serious part of their make up, and their related defense protection when they now cannot discredit the facts, the make a false personal attack on the writer, persons instead.  A   person who makes a personal attack instead of dealing with the facts shows to all they are brain dead.

https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2014/11/21/about-the-persons-who-cannot-see-the-truth/

.

Note the bad persons especially as even I know this for sure. They respond with a personal attack, inquisition, censorship, lies, slanders, diversions, distortions, instead of facing, dealing with the facts, truths being presented. Confirming to many what they still are really like, immoral, abusive bullies. When you oppose, criticize openly some of these very the bad persons one tends to get a false denial, They still really cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable acts. These People in the state of false denials, clearly also who lie often, they do now also tend to have severe personal, mental disorders next even cause one tends to eventually believe next ones own lies as being the truth, and they can no no longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth. By their false denials Who is fooling whom? You cannot fool all the people all the time and now matter how smart you are there is still someone more wiser who can see the truth still too..
.
These are the people in Denial who really do delude themselves too THAT THEY ARE NOT LIARS, as they lie and say I am not guilty, the facts are untrue, this is absurd, crazy nuts, as too often they still cannot deny the reality especially after they are exposed
.
Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
.
.
False Denial (also called abnegation) is a often defense mechanism in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence, a mechanism of the immature mind that conflicts with the ability to learn from and cope with reality. The subject may now deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether (simple denial), admit the fact but deny its seriousness (minimization) or admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility (transference). The concept of denial is particularly related to the denial of one’s addiction to alcohol for example, or to one slandering others, abusing them stealing, lying.. their denial or their minimization of their own wrong doings is the essential part of what enables them next to to continue his or her behavior in the face of evidence that, to an outsider, that is overwhelming. “The American Heart Association cites denial as a principal reason that treatment of a heart attack is delayed. Because the symptoms are so varied, and often have other potential explanations, the opportunity exists for the patient to deny the emergency, often with fatal consequences. It is common for patients to delay mammograms or other tests because of a fear of cancer, even though this is clearly maladaptive.”

JW are not the sheep belonging to Jesus, they follow another Jesus as they  listen to the voice of the devil, JW is a cult and they  do not listen to the voice of the holy spirit.. JW wake  up before you got to Hell.

Liars – we find the Watchtower practicing its belief that it is proper to deceive people. But, they say this really isn’t lying. Did you know that the Watchtower has a different definition of “lying” than most of us? In their book, AID TO BIBLE UNDERSTANDING, under the word “Lie”, we read, “Lying generally involves saying something false to a person who isentitled to know the truth….- (AID TO BIBLE UNDERSTANDING 1971, p. 1060.)
Of course, it is the Watchtower leaders that decide who deserves to know the truth http://www.letusreason.org/JW8.htm

Watchtower Error Check List:
They don’t worship the Jehovah of the Bible
They deny the Deity of Christ
They deny the physical Resurrection of Jesus
They deny the physical return of Christ
They deny the Mediation of Jesus Christ
They deny the Person of the Holy Spirit
 .
Watchtower Teaching:
Jesus is a created being: “Thus, Jesus had an existence in heaven before coming to the earth. But was it as one of the persons in an almighty, eternal triune Godhead? No, for the Bible plainly states that in his prehuman existence, Jesus was a created spirit being, just as angels were spirit beings created by God. Neither the angels nor Jesus had existed before their creation.” (Trinity Brochure page 14)
Jesus is Michael the Archangel: “Reasonably, then, the archangel Michael is Jesus Christ” (Reasoning from the Scriptures page 218)
.
The JW “bible” states: “In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.” (Jn1:1) Notice the article “a” and lower-case “god”. With this wording they proclaim that Jesus was -one- of ‘many’ gods.
Biblical Teaching:
.
Biblical teaching
.
Jesus created all things that were created, therefore it is impossible that he is a created being, unless he created himself. John1:3; Col1:16
Jesus is King of the kingdom. If Heb2:5 is true then it is impossible that Jesus is an angel, even an archangel. “..His Son…by Whom also He made the worlds…Who being…the express image of His essence..having made purification of our sins, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high, being made so much better than the angels…for to which of the angels did He say at any time, ‘You are My Son, this day I have begotten Thee?’ … “You, Lord, have laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the works of Your hands…but to which of the angels did He say at any time, ‘Sit on My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool?’ Are they [the angels] not all ministering spirits…?” (~Heb-ch1)
.
“Hear, O, Israel. Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.” (Deu6:4) “I and the Father are One.” (Jn10:30) “You shall have no other gods before Me.” (Ex20:3)
.

As per the Person of the Holy Spirit:

Watchtower Teaching:
A comparison of Bible texts that refer to the holy spirit shows that it is spoken of as ‘filling’ people; they can be ‘baptized’ with it; and they can be “anointed” with it. (Luke1:41; Mt3:11; Acts10:38) None of these expressions would be appropriate if the holy spirit were a person…..
The correct identification of the holy spirit must fit all the scriptures that refer to that spirit. With this viewpoint, it is logical to conclude that the holy spirit is the active force of God. It is not a person but is a powerful force that God causes to emanate from himself to accomplish his holy will.-Ps104:30; 2Pt1:21; Acts4:31. (Reasoning from the Scriptures page 381)
.
Biblical Teaching:”However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all Truth. For He shall not speak of Himself, but whatever He hears, He shall speak.” (Jn16:13) Notice all the personal pronouns, “He”.
The fact that they don’t acknowledge the ‘Person’ of the Holy Spirit means they are not of God. For them to speak of Him in such an abstract sense means they have not received the “witness” which He bears. (Rom8:16) They do not -know- Him. And anyone who does not have the Holy Spirit “dwelling” in them “is not of [Christ].” (Rom8:9)

.

JW deny the physical resurrection of Jesus:
Watchtower Teaching:
“Having given up his flesh for the life of the world, Christ could never take it again and become a man once more.” (Live forever page 143)
“Illustration: If a man pays a debt for a friend but then promptly takes back the payment, obviously the debt continues. Likewise, if, when he was resurrected, Jesus had taken back his human body of flesh and blood, which had been given in sacrifice to pay the ransom price, what effect would that have had on the provision he was making to relieve faithful persons of the debt of sin?” (Reasoning from the Scriptures page 217)
.
Biblical Teaching:Jesus would lay down the “temple of his body” and raise it up on the third day. Jn2:19-21
The word resurrection means that what died was raised up. If Jesus’s body was not raised after it died then there was no resurrection. If there was no resurrection then our faith is in vain. 1Cor15:14 “But now Christ has risen from the dead” (vs20)
.
They deny the physical return of Christ:
Watchtower Teaching:
If Christ was not raised physically then his return is invisible. They must reinterpret all references to Christ physical second advent. Biblical Teaching:Christ return to be physical and will be seen by all. Mt24:30; Mk14:62; Lk17:24; Rev 1:7; Tit2:13; 1Th4:16; Zech14:5
.
John 3:16 tells who are saved,(‘justified as righteous’) Rom.10: 4. These are adopted into the family of God,(Gal. 3:26). ho ever accepts His grace, are His remnant ‘of each generation.’ Only these out of all the earth,(John 1:12) are sons of God, his elect.
– Jn. 1:12,’13,’ Rom.11: 5, Gal 2:16, ; 3:6. The righteous are, saved,(Romans 3:22-28, Romans 11:5-10. Anyone not found in Jn. 1:12 is found in vs. 10,( above)
We should never allow ‘books’ to tell us other wise as Jw’s books do falsely  Note JW -1 Jn.3:7.‘Books’ have you boasting, in someone other than Jesus Christ.
.
How can you say you are not sure you are not saved as of this moment???’ If your ‘book’ studies don’t have this line of reasoning, then your JW ‘books are not biblical.
.
God knew I would do good works works.“That’s why He saved me.” But you tell me I am not doing enough to be saved and yet can’t even tell me that you are saved?’ How does your JW ‘books’ explain that? How many doors must one knock on before being saved?- Titus 3:5. Eph. 2:7-(vs. 9,‘walk in him’ as in col. 2:6). All those passages prove that the JW books are not of God. Christians ‘are saved!
.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses organization is extremist and does not respect fundamental human rights. Something that cult never admits to. This is the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization also known as “Watchtower Bible & Tract Society of N.Y. inc.”
This cult is a model that does not like to be contested or questioned. The Jehovah’s Witnesses organization uses a variety of techniques in its publications and pre written discourses, such as fallacies to mentally manipulate its members to keep them loyal to the Middle Age times. They prefer to only show one side of the coin. For example, since the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization imposes extremist values, they prohibit pre-marital sex. The Jehovah’s Witnesses organization discourse states that people who live in sin are miserable people that are prone to sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies. What the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization neglects to say is that some people use condoms and are free from the above mentioned problems! But using a condom is never presented as an option meaning/leading people to believe that they don’t exist. The same thing goes for creationism and evolution theories. The Jehovah’s Witnesses organization argues in favor of creationism and against evolutionism. They ignore proven fact by never showing pictures of fossils that have been discovered that may support evolution theories. The Jehovah’s Witnesses leaders are hypocrites at their best! https://www.watchtowerlies.com/jehovahs_witnesses.html

Misquotes, Deception and Lies by the JW.

External research is not recommended, as the Watchtower supplies all the information required.

Lying 1914 Quotes

The devil like the JW  misquotes the Bible, uses the Bible to spread his lies..     The Watchtower has regularly lied about what it said prior to 1914, claiming it correctly predicted the occurrences of 1914, and has held to consistent teachings regarding that date.

Until the 1930’s, the Watchtower taught that:

  • The time of the end commenced 1799
  • Jesus presence commenced 1874
  • Jesus’ heavenly rule in 1878

“There are two important here that we must not confuse, but clearly differentiate, namely, the beginning of “the time of the end” and of “the presence of the Lord”. “The time of the end” embraces a period from A.D. 1799, as above indicated, to the time of the complete overthrow of Satan’s empire and the establishment of the kingdom of the Messiah. The time of the Lord’s presence dates from 1874, as above stated. The latter period is within the first named, of course, and at the latter part of the period known as “the time of the end”.” The Harp of God (1921) p.231

“The year A.D. 1878 … clearly marks the time for the actual assuming of power as King of kings, by our present, spiritual, invisible Lord …” Studies in the Scriptures – The Time is At Hand (1911 ed) p.239

Yet it is now stated that the Watchtower “anticipated” Jesus would receive power in 1914.

“By linking the “seven times” of Daniel 4:25 with “the times of the Gentiles”, they anticipated that Christ would receive Kingdom power in 1914.”Watchtower 1998 Sep 15 p.15

“For over thirty years before that date and for half a century since, Jehovah’s witnesses have pointed to the year 1914 as the time for the end of “the appointed times of the nations” and the time in which Christ would begin his Kingdom rule. (Luke 21:24)” Watchtower 1966 Feb 15 p.103

Likewise, it was originally predicted that the end was to occur in 1914, yet now it is wrongfully stated that 1914 was the “start” of the end.

“But bear in mind that the end of 1914 is not the date for the beginning, but forthe end of the time of trouble.” Zion’s Watch Tower 1894 Jul 15 p.226

“Jehovah’s witnesses pointed to the year 1914, decades in advance, as markingthe start of “the conclusion of the system of things.” Awake! 1973 Jan 22 p.8

1914 was to be the start of the earthly resurrection.

“The beginning of the earthly phase of the Kingdom in the end of A.D. 1914 will, we understand, consist wholly of the resurrected holy ones of olden time-from John the Baptizer back to Abel;-“Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and all the holy prophets.”” Studies In the Scriptures – The Day of Vengeance (1897) p.625

Now they claim their calculations were true.

“He had correctly linked the Gentile Times with the “seven times” mentioned in the book of Daniel. (Dan. 4:16, 23, 25, 32) True to such calculations, 1914 did mark the end of those times and the birth of God’s kingdom in heaven with Christ Jesus as king. Just think of it! Jehovah granted his people that knowledge nearly four decades before those times expired.” Yearbook 1975 p.37

“Decades before 1914, Jehovah’s worshippers declared to the nations that the end of “the appointed times of the nations” would come in that year and that the world would enter into an unequaled period of trouble.” Watchtower 2013 Feb 15 p.18

It was not declared that the world would enter the time of trouble in 1914, as the time of trouble was said to have started in 1874.

“…, and the time of trouble, or “day of wrath” which began October 1874 and will end October 1914;… “ Studies in the Scriptures – The Day of Vengeancep.604

Whilst, it is strictly correct that Russell declared the Gentile Times, or “appointed times of the nations”, would end in 1914, these statements hide that nothing expected for the end of the Gentile Times came to pass.

For more information see Failed 1914 Predictions.

.
Many of the Jehovah’s witnesses are so indoctrinated and their lives are so wrapped up with their religion that they refuse to consider the evidence which any Christian may offer, even if it comes from their own literature! They know they would lose it all if they became a Bible-defined Christian since those who leave the organization are considered apostates and shunned by others, even their own natural family members. Hence, the price seems too great for many, but not all of them. Some Jehovah’s witnesses do come to salvation. Christians must try to win their souls, for they desperately need eternal life. [Eternal life is ONLY in the Lord Jesus Christ (1 John 5:12,13) and NOT any organization or denomination. Eternal life is also spiritual life, which Christians have now this side of the grave before their physical death. These are true Christian beliefs.]

So why do some people falsely push the Secret Rapture?

`TREASURE

The  false secret  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. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/12/22/the-plymouth-brethren/

.

So why do some people falsely push the secret Rapture?

.

Real Bible ignorance firstly.. They have not studied the New Testament prayerfully for themselves but mostly listen to the lies, distortions of others.

.

There are many people, pastors, so called leaders, who because of various reasons have never received the fullness of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the second blessings , and thus they do not even know that they are out of touch with God and the holy Spirit.They are still carnal, use their own human reasons, understandings, or listen to other carnal persons to obtain their often still false, corrupted spiritual understandings True spiritual understanding is a direct revelation from the Holy Spirit, with whom they have no contact even. https://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/
.
It is ludicrous,. really absurd that some people will still falsely claim they are Experts  on the Holy Spirit, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, praying, speaking in toungues too, a personal  experience they still  have never even had..
.
The Baptism with the Holy Spirit is also referred to as, “the second blessing.”  where the baptism with the Holy Spirit is an additional experience that we must seek after we are saved, rather than the initial  one most people we receive with salvation. So in that case, the baptism with the Holy Spirit would be a SECOND BLESSING. Most real Pentecostal and Charismatic people do believe that the baptism with the Holy Spirit is a second blessing – one received in addition to salvation. They believe that you can be saved, and be indwelt by Christ — but that this is not ALL that God has for most us. You thus must go on to receive POWER, gifts, and an overflow. This, to them, is the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the so-called, “second blessing.” The reasons most people did not receive the Baptism with the Holy Spirit at Salvation was they were ignorant of it, they did not accept Jesus Christ fully as the sole Lord of their life at salvation. Their salvation  is more of an intellectual salvation not a fully experiential salvation.. If you still personally must receive a second blessing to receive ALL that God wants to give us, then you do NOT receive all when you receive Christ. Thus, this means that it is entirely possible to be saved but LACK everything that goes with this, “second blessing.”  Which most often is the case. https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2013/12/23/disspensationalists-are-false-christians/

.

It seems strange to me that the Lord would not reveal, by the Holy Spirit, a teaching which the end-time prophets of today preach as a foundational dogma and a forgone conclusion. Not until 1831 was this “new truth” revealed and not until the 20th century was it popularized. How is it that the Apostles and the Early Fathers overlooked such an important eschatological event? Why is it not clearly spelled out in the Scriptures? The obvious answer is this: THE DOCTRINE KNOWN AS THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH DOES NOT EXIST! Like all other heresies it was and is the invention of men, not the teaching of the Church. Rather than listen to the doctrines of men, let us pay extremely close attention to our Lord’s own words in the Gospels.  When Jesus taught His Apostles about His glorious 2nd coming, these are the words He used: “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall the coming of the Son of Man be (Matthew 24:27)”. In the book of Acts, St. Luke tells us that when Jesus ascended into heaven, and the Apostles were gazing upward as the Lord rose among the clouds, two men in white apparel (presumed to be angels) said these words: “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven (Acts 1:11)”. We are told here in Holy Scripture that exactly in the same way Jesus ascended into heaven He will return to earth. In other words, He will return in the clouds in the sky. That description doesn’t sound like a “secret catching away” but rather a dynamic 2nd coming!  To be sure, there will be a catching away of the saints on earth but this happens at the last trumpet sound (Revelation 11:15). Writing to the Christians in Thessalonica, St. Paul tells us what the 2nd coming (Greek- parousia) is like. “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore, comfort one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)”. The same words are used here to describe the catching up of Christians as is used to describe the 2nd coming of the Lord. Both occur in the clouds, in the air, and everyone on earth sees it happen. In other words, the so-called Rapture and the 2nd coming of Christ will happen at the same time.
.
Perhaps the most vivid picture of our Lord’s 2nd coming to earth is found in the words of St. John the Apostle. In the book of Revelation he writes: “Behold, He cometh with clouds and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, amen (Revelation 1:7)”. Far from believing that the Lord will return “secretly” to rapture the Church 7 years before His 2nd coming, St. John says that every human being on earth will see the Lord descend from the clouds. Once again, here are the words of the Nicene Creed, the symbol and statement of faith for all Christians: “He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and His kindgom shall have no end.” The 2nd coming of our Lord Jesus Christ shall be in glory, not in secret. Then the Prince of Peace shall establish true peace, joy, and righteousness on the earth; “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14)”.

Most dispensationalists still do   take isolated verse and twist them to suit what they want others to believe still especially the false Dispensationalists http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/most-people-do-take-isolated-verse-and-twist-them/

.

Dispensationalism is basically false and it is the  method of interpreting the scriptures that sees two distinct peoples of God, with two distinct destinies of  Israel and the Church. It also unacceptably tries falsely to explain away  the relevance of the gifts of the holy spirit today.  It is not a coincident that too many  Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the   HOLY SPIRIT today as well, HIS Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO.  Evangelical Dispensationalists do also still tend to be trying to earn a great spot in heaven by their own good works, saving others, following the teaching of men, an evil spirit, and not the Holy Spirit rather.. http://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2008/11/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus/

(Isa 30:1 KJV) Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

I am   aware of the fact John Darby and Cyrus Scofield have led many saints into such a mess, that it’s become the tool for a Brethren cult too! Some persons do preach, write out of their guilty, to compensate for the related emptiness they are feeling, while others write because they are ambitious, they write out of seeking fame, their seeking a place of prominence.. many are just lead by the devil too.

The Second Advent of our Messiah Jesus Christ is in fact Biblically sound Doctrine, it will happen!  However, the Rapture theory fabricates a pre-Second Advent advent, which is not in the Bible. In essence, what they have done is that they have made three advents out of the true two Advents of Jesus Christ as found in among other places, {Zech 9:9+10}.  It is a falsehood created by man and added to God’s Word.  In this Bible study we will thoroughly debunk the Rapture lie and explain not only it’s dubious origins, but also it’s cause and effect, and the extreme danger that such a false doctrine poses for God’s children. The rapture, often called “the blessed hope,” is sadly more hoax than hope,  For such a seemingly major doctrine, one might expect a weighty argument, but this is what is offered in The Scofield Bible’s Reference Notes (1917 Edition): “…’caught up’—Not church saints only, but all bodies of the saved [that is, not only the living, but also the dead], of whatever dispensation, are included in the first resurrection… [It] is peculiarly the ‘blessed hope’ of the Church (cf)  This offers surprisingly little information, considering how many accept the rapture doctrine based upon these notes. Additionally, all of the references he cited are about Christ’s return and the believer’s need to be ready for that event. None of them speak of a “near return” by Christ to snatch away believers.

.

Some rapturists today cite Acts 8:39And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.   saying it uses the same Greek word that is translated “caught up” in 1 Thessalonians 4:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.   They say that the fact the Spirit of God “caught [Philip] away” shows that 1 Thessalonians 4:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. means that the saints are caught away to heaven. Yet the Spirit did not transport Philip to heaven, but rather from one place on the earth to another.

.

The Rapture ‘doctors’ (those who create, fabricate, and perpetuate the many different Rapture theories) have searched the Bible over and have found a finite number of Scriptures that they were able to pull violently out of context, twist and mould, reshape and join unnaturally one to the other until they have formed a new product, a new doctrine, seemingly supported by Biblical Scripture, but in reality nothing more than satan’s ‘house of cards,’ built on a foundation of sand, a perversion of God’s true end-time plan.   Any claim of any verse verses  being  about snatched away to heaven takes incredible license, distortions  with the Bible.

.

The Rapture doctrine is dangerous because it teaches Christians that they will be spared all tribulation, wrath, and danger in the last days. The need for urgent preparation of one’s heart and soul is diminished because Christians will be secretly taken away from all that pain. No need to worry, we’ll just fly away. Unlike the Early Christians, most of whom were murdered by this world’s authorities, the end-time Christians have a get-out-of-tribulation free card called the Rapture. Remember the words of St. Paul, “All those who live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution (2 Timothy 2:12).” And lastly, the words of the Lord in John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Hal Lindsey the typical evangelical hireling, a self-proclaimed “Father of the Modern Day False Prophecy Movement,” popularized the false eschatology doctrines of most dispensationalists. His books have influenced thousands of preachers, teachers and laymen leading them astray in the subject of eschatology. Hal has also been a leader in coercing believers into supporting a false religion (Babylonian Talmudic Judaism), and a nation (Israel) that oppresses nearly half of its citizens (Palestinians). Like most men who have acquired great wealth, prestige and influence he has spent a good deal of time chasing women. His third wife and church gave him the boot for his sexcapades.  For detailed proof of his false prophecies and teachings go to — haLUNACY

All they care about is inspiring people to idolize Israel and the almighty Jews. Is your church stupid? It is if you support Israel. You are IGNORANT of the Scriptures my friend if you think God blesses Christians who support a wicked, Christ-rejecting people. The idolizing and worshipping of Jerusalem, Israel and the Jews is evil in the sight of God.   http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Doctrines/Zionism/israel_idolatry.htm

If you still do have a God shaped vacuum that is unfilled, then no other things, no relationships or careers, goals, next will satisfy you, not even any personal, social, community relationships, acts. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/even-heaven-awaits-jewish-return-to-god-jesus-christ-and-rather-not-to-the-promised-earthly-land/
