The critical Christian issues

Evangelicals who like to bash abortionists, gays, Catholics, Pentecostals, they need to see their own faults  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2018/01/16/divorce-abortions-polygamy-adultery-are-immoral-as-being-gay/

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, some not too well hidden even.

.

Ephesians 4-25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

2 Thessalonians 2 -9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2 Peter 2 -1 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 bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

1 John 4 -1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Revelation 16 -13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

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 off self, to be falsely personally worshiped and still live in sin too. Undeniably Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, Bible ignorant persons often lie and preach their own false agendas. false doctrines in churches, even on the net.. and the main reason for that still is that MOST of them have not been called directly to preach , or to teach by God and they are doing so mostly for money, power, personal fame, recognition, slave hood and demonic influence even.   https://dispensatiionalism.wordpress.com/2015/09/23/proclaiming-the-empowerment-of-the-holy-spirit/

Most people are like dumb sheep being told what to do. They are Bible ignorant, know almost nothing personally about  what Jesus and the Apostles have said still too. There really is no true light in them. They are religious but have a god shaped void still.. Sadly it seems to apply to 70 percent of the  professing Christians and their poor pastors, And many of them have false, misleading internet sites just to show off, try to falsely be popular. They are mostly empty wells and it easy too  to spot them  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/10/10/on-how-i-see-the-too-often-pretentious-christians/

Many of you are deceived because you have chosen to become servants of mere men instead of becoming the real sons and daughters of GOD! Many of you are deceived because you just love to be deceived, you trust in man more than you trust in GOD, and you love the praises of men more than you love the praise of GOD!
.
Many of you professing Christians, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Hebrew Israelite’s are deceived, because you believe more in your man made religions, your many different divisions of denominations, your religious lies, your false leaders, false teachers, false prophets, false apostles, and false teachers, more than you believe in the absolute truth of GOD’S word in CHRIST JESUS!
.
Is 2:22 Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?
.
Many of you are deceived because you lack the revelation knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS, and you have not become GOD’S true chosen anointed. If you do not know GOD, Jesus Christ personally through the revelation knowledge of JESUS CHRIST and his Holy Spirit for yourselves, then you’re already deceived, and if your already deceived, then deception shall be your reward, because we all reap what we sow!.
.
The vast majority of preaching and Christian living done in the name of the Lord today is still really without the power of the Holy Spirit manifest through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This was, is not the way the Lord Jesus Christ had intended it to be.for sure..No one can have an effective life or ministry without the power of God’s Holy Spirit working in him or her. This fact can’t be argued by anyone who truly believes the Bible is God’s Word. The Scriptures are replete with proof that it is “not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zech. 4:6).  If a Christian’s life isn’t full of the personal supernatural, it’s a pretentious one rather.

The  mostly immoral,  lying now people, pastors too often too, spouses, politicians,  lawyers, judges tend to first need decent, real, pastoral counseling themselves.

 All Christian Lies, Divorce And/or  Christian Divorce  Remarriage as well as adultery, fornication , Alcoholism, drugs, smoking, gays , Dispensationalism, Hebrew Roots Movement,  in the Christian Church are ALL still unacceptable.

While evangelicals mostly concentrate on tithing, abortions gays they too often do  neglect preaching on-
 .
The Holy Spirit   Many persons do not really know much about what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit. If you personally do want to have an increase of people in your church, or more love, joy, faith, in your own life, and to be able to resist the continual onslaughts of the enemy the devil you need to be now anointed with the Holy Spirit and you need to get to know him and his works better too. Generally the works of the Holy spirit have an initial beginning but they are also continual works, evolving ones. https://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2008/11/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus/
.
Divorce  -The Old Testament approved of only the husband right to divorce a wife that he was displeased with. Even though lately it is generally 70 percent of the women filling for divorce there still is no Biblical approval of such acts in the Old or New Testament. In the New Testament there is no provision for married Christians to divorce at all generally without committing an act of adultery next..
 .

 The only thing in the Bible I rightfully do follow related to the Laws and Prophets. (old Testament) is Jesus, a  summary as per  Matthew 2:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Now beyond that I do not follow the doctrine of the Old covenant from God only to the Jews, Israel. I follow the New Covenant between God and the world and more precisely , the whole New Testament. Jesus the Word, the Holy Spirit.

 .
Dispensationalism-What does the Bible say as opposed to man about Dispensationalism? Dispensationalism  is false, not biblical. Covenant theology   is the opposite of dispensationalism. The Father God’s agreement – promised to the Son: 1) all the Son’s needs to be met; 2) Holy Spirit given to the Church; 3) salvation to all believers; 4) exaltation of the son.
.
False Hebrew Roots movements The Hebrew Roots organizations have become the modern equivalent of the Judaisers who followed the Apostle Paul from city to city, spying on the NT believers’ liberty in Christ and striving to pervert the Gospel and cause confusion among the Early Christians. – https://asposed.wordpress.com/2015/09/19/hebrew-roots-messianic-movement/
.
Instead of Christ alone, the HRM and Messianic Jewish Movement over-balance into the religion that they have never really left! They cannot grasp that ALL is fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ. Not only that, but they want the Christians to embrace the O.T. Jewish religious beliefs, ordinances, and traditions that were necessary under the Law as well!
 .
False Messianic JewsMessianic-jews-are-not-christian. Messianic Judaism” is a counterfeit form of Christianity that follows the rabbinic Judaism. There are radical differences between Judaism and Christianity.

We all are told to come to Jesus directly and always not to mere man…..

Alcohol 

 No man should adduce in favour of drinking wine unless he can prove that the wine Jesus made in the” water-pots” of Cana was just like the wine which he proposes to drink. There are ample Greek literary texts which negate the narrow definition of oinos as denoting only fermented wine as it did not have the taste or the intoxicating effect of ordinary wine, God did not make fermented juice.. New wine would be grape juice (or a grapeade) mode from grape syrup while old wine would be 2 to 3 years old Suffice it to say, the “better” wine of course does not in any way imply or demand a more alcoholic, or even an alcoholic, wine at all, there is not the slightest evidence that the word so used would have conveyed any idea but that of the pure juice of the grape,

 

John the Baptist did not drink wine or any other form of alcohol because Scripture prophesied that he wouldn’t (Luke 1:15). Most people don’t know where to draw the line between temperance and excess. Such people better abstain totally until they know they can “be temperate in all things.”

 

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

 

And the word used twice  for “good” wine is a Greek word which refers to something or someone morally excellent or intrinsically good, rather It was Christ who in the Old Testament gave the warning to Israel, that “Wine is a mocker,” so why would he make fermented grape juice? by creating alcoholic wine, Jesus would have been promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.

 

Next you will say Jesus would have also distributed Playboy magazines.

 

If Jesus made fermented wine, then the fact that the guests had become”well drunk” would have meant that Jesus endorsed excessive drinking. Therefore,either Jesus endorsed excessive drinking of alcohol or the wine was unfermented grape juice! Obviously, then, the wine that Jesus made was unfermented grape juice.

 

Too many have assumed that the Hebrew and Greek words translated as “wine” must have the same meaning that the modern usage meaning of the English word “wine” does. In the English language, the word “wine” originally was used to denote the juice of grapes, whether in a fermented or unfermented state. Long ago, of course, that word has taken on the usage meaning of only grape juice in its fermented state. That’s why today we distinguish the two drinks by using the terms “wine” and “grape juice.”

 

Exodus 12:15 and 13:7 forbid the very presence of “leaven” anywhere in the homes during Passover. The New Testament–in Matthew 16:12 and I Corinthians 5:7-8–provide the explanation by declaring that leaven is a symbol of evil. Leaven is a yeast, so the leavening process is parallel to the process of fermentation. In the light of these facts,plus Jesus’ statement in the disputed passages that the “fruit of the vine”represented His own saving blood, we must surely conclude that the communion cup did, and should always, contain unfermented (ie., uncorrupted) grape juice. The following Old Testament texts show God’s disapproval of wine, as “yayin:” Genesis 9:21; 19:32; Leviticus10:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:33; Psalm 60:3; Proverbs 4:17; 20:1; 23:20, 29-35;31:4-5; Isaiah 5:11-12; 28:7; Ezekiel 44:21; and Hosea 7:5. Proverbs 23:31-35–Again, the very nature of fermented wine is categorically condemned as a “serpent” and an “adder” that bites and stings.

 

The Bible condemns the use itself of all alcoholic beverages and highly recommends unfermented grape juice!  The only exception to this consistent rule in Scripture is Proverbs 31: 6-7, which commands that alcoholic beverages be given to those who are dying or cowards.

 

The assumption made by proponents of the moderate use of alcoholic beverages that the ancient peoples did not know how to preserve the juice of the grape in an unfermented state, and that therefore, virtually every instance of wine mentioned in the Bible must be to fermented wine.This assumption is totally false as the ancient historical records are abundantly clear that there were several major methods of preserving grape juice in its natural, unfermented state.

 

Scriptures clearly teach that the very nature of alcoholic beverages is that which brings spiritual apostasy and otherwise affects the mind (and body too) of whomever drinks it. In other words, it is not excessive drinking only that the Bible condemns,but the beverage itself and its consumption in any amount. Since most people and Christians do not know or study the Bible today they are easily deceived.

 

As it is abundantly clear that the Bible condemns the use of alcohol in any amounts, Persons that are simply rationalizing what they want to do regardless of the facts or the consequences to their spiritual, or physical, natures are led to do so by the demons.

Why Are So Many Christians Obsessed With Predicting the Future ? Obsessed with the End Times? And the latest Christian publishing Obsession is a seven-volume post-Rapture, dispensational soap opera. Most people are like dumb sheep being told what to do. They are Bible ignorant, know almost nothing personally about what Jesus and the Apostles have said still too.

There are real dangers to end-times obsessions: a disinclination to work toward long-term solutions, a propensity to focus on prophetic fulfillment at the expense of ethical concerns (something Israel’s prophets were never accused of), and a perverse satisfaction in cultural decay. This perversity of an ongoing cultural fascination with End Times and a willingness to help usher them in by proclaiming how rotten things are in the world right now — a key tenet in the false Rapture theology, as in life, is that things usually get worse before they get better. Rapture oriented and Judgmental Christians are demonic induced. Where did Jesus and the Apostles say help to support the rebuilding of the nation of Israel, or Judaism?“

There is to much false date-setting now as there has been in the past,” A false Math and a false religion. Many so called Christian groups have tried to use the Bible to predict when the world will end, using a (hardly clear-cut) combination of events mentioned in the apocalyptic Book of Revelation. There is centuries-long tradition of false Christians who have made false predictions of coming judgments, end times. The public having been played for fools. Stop making fools of yourselves

As predicted by Jesus in 70 AD: The Roman Army destroyed Jerusalem, killed over 1 million Jews, took about 100,000 into slavery and captivity, and scattered all the Jews from Palestine to other locations in the Roman Empire. and in 200 AS: Roman Emperor Severus forbade religious conversions to Judaism, In 306 AD: The church Synod of Elvira banned marriages, sexual intercourse and community contacts between Christians and Jews. . In 315 AD: Constantine published the Edict of Milan which extended religious tolerance to Christians. Jews lost many rights with this edict. They were no longer permitted to live in Jerusalem, or to proselytize. 528 AD: Emperor Justinian (527-564) passed the Justinian Code. It prohibited Jews from building synagogues, reading the Bible in Hebrew, assemble in public, celebrate Passover before Easter, and testify against Christians in court. 535 AD : The “Synod of Claremont decreed that Jews could not hold public office or have authority over Christians.” Augustine wrote “The true image of the Hebrew is Judas Iscariot, who sells the Lord for silver. The Jew can never understand the Scriptures and forever will bear the guilt for the death of Jesus.” The New Zealand Church censored of all references to Zion and Jerusalem in the new Psalter and liturgy.

Jesus has removed Israel from God’s plan, rejecting the past rights and destiny of natural Israel. The opposition to Zionism, Judaism is still Biblical. And the Persecution of the Jews can only cease if they converted to Christianity. The simple truth that none of us know with absolute certainty what will happen shortly in the world.

Too many false prophets had foretold the end of the world but not their own death. It is clear from ancient prophesies that the Messiah will come to save his people from their enemies in the end times. And Jesus did that he saved his people those who put their trust in Him. He cannot save the Jews, if they reject Him. To try rather to destroy Jesus, the Church, Christians is to support the work of Satan. Jesus the Messiah has come to destroy the works of Satan, ungodly Jews.

( Mat 7:16 KJV) 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. 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. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

.

Many people think that the end times biblical prophecies about the antichrist, 666, the end of the world , Israel, Zionism, the Battle of Armageddon are still for the weirdoes, religious fanatics , oddballs, extremists, those persons who afraid to face life today, ahead of them and falsely now do look for an escape from it.

The Basic problem here also is not the Bible detailed Prophecies themselves but rather how many people misinterpret them, add their views, and it seems few of them even agree with each others still. In reality even these days many Christians SADLY themselves have never studied what the Bible actually says and because of this they often wrongfully leave it to others to read the Bible for them too they thus are too easily deceived by the imposters, cults, sects, wolves in sheep clothing, false teachers, false prophets, false elders too.

.

Undeniably Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, Bible ignorant persons often lie and preach their own false agendas. false doctrines in churches, on the net.. and the main reason for that still is that MOST of them have not been called directly to preach , or to teach by God and they are doing so mostly for money, power, personal fame, recognition, slave hood and demonic influence even..

.

Many of you professing Christians, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Hebrew Israelite’s are deceived, because you believe more in your man made religions, your many different divisions of denominations, your religious lies, your false leaders, false teachers, false prophets, false apostles, and false teachers, more than you believe in the absolute truth of GOD’S word in CHRIST JESUS!

Many of you are deceived by your own religious leaders because you will not seek after JESUS for yourselves, like JESUS commanded you to do so! Many of you are deceived because you do not seek after JESUS with your whole heart, mind, and soul, that you might know GOD for yourself through the revelation knowledge of JESUS CHRIST for yourself!

.

Many of you are deceived because you just love to be deceived, you trust in man more than you trust in GOD, and you love the praises of men more than you love the praise of GOD! Many of you are deceived because you have chosen to become servants of mere men instead of becoming the real sons and daughters of GOD!

.

Many of you are deceived because you lack the revelation knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS, and you have not become GOD’S true chosen anointed prophets, priests, kings, queens, and his present day anointing in the earth, because you allowed men to deceive you! Many of you are deceived simply because you are followers of men, and not true followers of JESUS CHRIST!”

.

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Matthew 24:4-8, 10-14

Jesus came to save all Jews as well

messianc-3

Dual Covenant Theology teaches that the Jewish People have a separate path to God through the Mosaic and Abrahamic Covenants. This is false.
 .
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16,
 .
Besides the annual holidays, there are various distinctive lifestyle events that characterize the lives of most Jewish people. Including…
Circumcision of sons on the eighth day. The accompanying ceremony is called brit milah.
Bar mitzvah (for boys) and bat mitzvah (for girls—not traditional). The coming of age ceremony at age 13. Generally consists of a synagogue service followed by an extended and elaborate reception with full meal.
Jewish weddings are typically characterized by the ceremony under a canopy (the chuppah, rhymes with “look, a wedding!” and the “ch” is pronounced gutterally as in German) and the smashing of a glass wrapped in a cloth to symbolize the destruction of the Temple.
 .
Whether or not a Jewish person adheres to some form of Judaism, his or her Jewishness is a way of life to be lived out in varying degrees. Jews do not speak of “salvation,” for there is nothing to be saved from. If there is a God, then Jewish people already have a relationship with Him. Jesus is superfluous for Jews.
 .
Jesus is the Messiah that the Jews had been anticipating for centuries ( Luke 2:25; 3:15) The Messiah was to be a “light for the Gentiles” (Isaiah 42:6). The Jews were acquainted with many of the prophecies about the Messiah, Christ, the chosen or “anointed one” as the word means in Greek. In the Greek language in which the New Testament was written, Christos ( Christ in English) has the same meaning as the Hebrew word Mashiach ( Messiah in English) — “anointed one,” signifying one who was specially chosen by God
 .
.“And many of the people ( Jews ) believed in Him, and said, ‘When the Christ [Messiah] comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?’” (John 7:31).
 .
Jesus came to save everybody (1 John 2:2). Jesus Christ is God Himself (John 1:1). Jesus died on the cross as the payment for all our sins, and He rose from death in resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:3–4). Jesus said He was the Good Shepherd, and He predicted that His flock would be greatly expanded: “I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd” (John 10:16).
 .
The Jews had a priority for Salvation over Gentiles as the past chosen people of God. All salvation is salvation through God’s covenant with Abraham!
 .
In Genesis 12, God chooses Abraham and his descendants freely from all the peoples of the world to bless with his covenant and promise. Nehemiah 9:7 says, “God . . . chose Abram, and brought him out from Ur of the Chaldees.” Then Deuteronomy 14:2 says about the whole Jewish people, “The LORD has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.” And Amos 3:2 says, “You only have I chosen among all the families of the earth.” And here in Romans 11:28-29, Paul says, “From the standpoint of the gospel they [the Jews] are enemies for your sake [you Gentiles], but from the standpoint of [election, or] God’s choice, they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”
 .
“There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek, but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 2:9-10
 .
“From everyone who has been given much, much will be required” (Luke 12:48).
 .
Jews do not have priority in righteousness or merit Nor do Gentiles. We are on the same footing, all have sinned. “There is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:22-23,
 .
“What then? Are we [Jews] better than they [Gentiles]? Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin; as it is written, ‘THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE.'” Romans 3:9-10
 .
“Is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also . . . God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.” Romans 3: 29-30,
 .
“There is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; (13) for ‘WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.'” Romans 10:12,
.
“If you search for Him, He will let you find Him, but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.” 1 Chronicles 28:9
 .
We should pray for the Jewish people today that they might individually come to Jesus. This is all consistent with God’s instructions to Israel. “But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them: then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people: And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house?” I Kings 9:6-8. I
 .
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.” Colossians 3:11. In Christ Old and New Testaments are bound together and all the promises are now to be fulfilled in Spiritual Israel, the Church.
 .
Isaiah, tell us that “in the latter days … the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it” (Isaiah 2:2).
 .
In Bible prophecy, mountains and hills are used to represent governments or nations. This prophecy foretells a time when the future Kingdom of the Messiah will be established and will reign over all earthly governments and nations. The prophetic understanding of this divine Kingdom was at the heart of Jesus Christ’s message as well as the ultimate role of the Messiah. When Jesus announced the Kingdom of God is at hand (Mark 1:15), He was simply saying that the Kingdom of God that would come to earth. Jesus said all the people of the earth “will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:30). At Jesus’ second coming He is pictured as One who “judges and makes war” (Revelation 19:11). He will “strike the nations” with a sword and tread “the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God” (Revelation 19:15).
 .
The Idea of Messianic Judaism, or what some call Jewish Christianity, is false, they too need to be saved still. Jesus Christ is the God of Christianity. Jesus Began a New Religion Called Christianity. The Church is almost completely severed from its Jewish roots.
 .
How Were the Jews Saved Before Jesus Came in the Flesh?
.
What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness . . . . Does this blessedness then come upon the circumcised only, or upon the uncircumcised also? For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness. How then was it accounted? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised. . . . Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all (Romans 4:1–5, 9–10, 16)
 .
Salvation has always been and will always be by God’s grace and received through faith alone, and not be nationality, ancestry, lineage. “Judaism” to refer to the religion of the rabbis that developed from about 200 B.C. onwards and crystallized following the destruction of the Temple in A.D 70. Christianity is not described as a daughter religion of Judaism. In short Jesus didn’t come to establish Judaism for all to follow, he came as the Christ (that is the long expected and anticipated King from the Old Testament) to establish Christianity not as a set of laws to follow but as a life of following the Holy Spirit.

Jewish expectation, and kingdom expectation in Jesus’ time

Israel

I’m not surprised that many don’t believe in religion, god. I don’t believe in them either . “I believe in the God I see revealed in Jesus of Nazareth.” What most people mean by “god” simply is not the mainstream Christian meaning. Nor can we look to the Jewish scholars for help since they, by and large, have not been interested in this topic.

The central feature of Jewish expectation, and kingdom expectation even in Jesus’ time was the hope that God would return in person to Zion. The question of “Jesus and God” is a huge and difficult Jewish matter. Judaism has at its heart what we can and must call several incarnational symbols, not least the Torah, but particularly the Jerusalem empire, temple. Jesus in terms of past Torah and Temple defined his mission and hint at his own self understanding. The fact that God chose the Jewish people to form a kingdom of priests and gave promised them the land of Israel, has now been switched to the Christians, the replacement theology. Something the Jews and  Dispensationalists  still falsely deny. The true inheritors of Israel are not the Jews but the Christians. . Zionism is is an aggressive Jewish colonial false hope..

A key central Christological passages of the NT is essential to all.. A serious and disciplined theological thought on the part of even the very earliest Christians. Refusing to contemplate any god other than the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, they found themselves drawn by the Spirit to Jesus. The NT writers, are expressing a Trinitarian theology without needing to use any of the technical terms.. Also early Christians all regarded Jesus as the Messiah of Israel, the one in whom Israel’s destiny had been summed up. A theological DE legitimization of Israel. one “new man” made of both Jew and Christian did not warrant a Jewish state, the literal truth of New Testament scripture.

Classic Jews believe that there is one God, who created heaven and earth and who remained in close and dynamic relation with his creation; and that this God had called Israel to be his special people. The chosen people were also the rescued people, liberated from slavery in Egypt, marked out by the gift of Torah, established in their land, exiled because of disobedience, but promised a glorious return and final settlement. Jews believe falsely in the covenant of Exodus and Return, and this God is also utterly different from the Christian God, Jesus.

“To suggest therefore that the Jewish people continue to have a special relationship with God, apart from faith in Jesus or have exclusive rights to land, a city, and temple is, in the words of John Stott [a leading British evangelical], ‘biblically anathema.’”

Today’s State of Israel wishes only to be the superior nation in the family of nations. Jesus opposed first century Judaism, broke out of its constraining shackles, and was at liberty to think and say what he liked, and the same went for his followers. in this eagerness we forget what the NT writers and above all Jesus himself about Judaism. God chose Abraham and said “in your seed all the families of the earth will he blessed.” Galatians 3:29, where Paul says, “If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring.” It is precisely because Jesus of Nazareth is the fulfillment of this promise that he is relevant in all times and places. Jesus the light and salvation of the whole world, Jews included. This belief does not imply anti-Semitism .

When you try to build a bridge from biblical Israel to modern Israel, there is an enormous gap in New Testament history and theology. A continuing Jewish setting and meaning was rightfully forgotten within the early Church. Those Christians and Jews citing the Bible to support their Zionistic policy positions are thinking politically and not Biblically. The question today is whether the modern state of Israel is that nation that was imagined back in the Bible. Leo Tolstoy, pondered the survival of the Jews, but also sensed that their existence had to do with a unique purpose, Salvation by Jesus. Jews once chosen to be a “light unto nations.

It was, is possible for all Jews to conceive of a first century Jew, and all Jews credibly coming to believe that Jesus,a Christian was called to die for the sins of Israel, even of the world. Jesus is love poured out and love received. God’s Spirit brooded over the waters, and God’s Word Jesus goes forth to produce new life, God’s Law guides his people, God’s Presence or Glory, Jesus dwells with them, in the fiery cloud, in the tabernacle and in the temple. Paul, like other NT writers, uses the phrase “son of God” to denote Jesus.

“For us there is one God—the Father, from whom are all things and we to him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and we through him.” “At the name of Jesus”, he declares, “every knee shall bow.” It became another way of speaking about the one God present, personal, active, saving, and rescuing, while still being able to speak of the one God sovereign, creating, sustaining, sending, and remaining beyond. Jesus’ conviction that it was his task and role, his vocation, not only to speak of this kingdom but also to enact and embody The positive reason for studying Jesus within his historical context and using all the tools at our disposal to do so has to do with that still-neglected factor, the true meaning of Jesus within Israel, the purpose of God.

The creation of an exclusively Jewish state of Israel , Jewish supremionism, goes directly against God’s plan for the Jewish people and the World. Jewish statelessness was a necessary precursor to the salvation of humanity. Jesus brings the story of Israel to its climax by the destruction of the Jewish temple in 70 AD, and the furthering of the “kingdom of God” Jesus believed himself called to do and be what in the scriptures only Israel’s God did and was. What happened in 1948 and 1967 was not moral, and don’t believe it had any divine significance. here doesn’t necessarily need to be a “state” of Israel for the Messaiaship, a new Israel to be fulfilled .

The Church has inherited the promises of Israel. The message of Christianity is a universal one that is not interested in ethnicity or territory. The Church is actually the new Israel.” We don’t think of ourselves as anti-Israel, because to be “anti-” is not very loving. We are instead pro-Palestinian, pro-peace, and pro-love.The Church has inherited the promises of Israel.

WE don’t recognize that the Christian faith comes from Judaism,’ but instead of the children of Abraham, the Church, Christianity has superseded Judaism. Jesus had not promoted a type of Jewish supremacy.Those Jews and evangelical Christians who say an undivided Jerusalem should be the eternal capital of Israel are in great error. If you go back to the times of the Romans, even legally, Jerusalem was never belonging solely to the Jewish people.

Jesus’ resurrection led the early Church to speak of the way pointed to Israel’s Messiah, messiahship, messiahship to the task performed on the cross, and that task to the God who had promised to accomplish it himself and had done so. Israel could unilaterally bring an end to the Arab–Israeli conflict but chooses not to because of flaws in its national character. The onus for ending the Arab–Israeli conflict is on Israel. The Jews are still special to God… But so are all people.

on how I see the too often pretentious Christians

  

The only thing in the Bible I rightfully do follow related to the Laws and Prophets. (old Testament) is Jesus, a  summary as per  Matthew 2:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Now beyond that I do not follow the doctrine of the Old covenant from God only to the Jews, Israel. I follow the New Covenant between God and the world and more precisely , the whole New Testament. Jesus the Word, the Holy Spirit.

Most people are like dumb sheep being told what to do. They are Bible ignorant, know almost nothing personally about  what Jesus and the Apostles have said still too. There really is no true light in them. They are religious but have a God shaped void still.. Sadly it seems to apply to 70 percent of the  professing Evangelical Christians and their poor pastors, And many of them have false, misleading internet sites just to show off, try to falsely be popular. They are mostly empty wells and it easy too  to spot them

(Isa 8:21 KJV)  And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.

(1 Cor 3:21 KJV)  Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

Why Are So Many Evangelical  Christians Obsessed With Predicting the Future ? Obsessed with the End Times? And the latest Christian publishing Obsession is a seven-volume post-Rapture, dispensational soap opera. Most people are like dumb sheep being told what to do. They are Bible ignorant, know almost nothing personally about what Jesus and the Apostles have said still too.

There are real dangers to end-times obsessions: a disinclination to work toward long-term solutions, a propensity to focus on prophetic fulfillment at the expense of ethical concerns (something Israel’s prophets were never accused of), and a perverse satisfaction in cultural decay. This perversity of an ongoing cultural fascination with End Times and a willingness to help usher them in by proclaiming how rotten things are in the world right now — a key tenet in the false Rapture theology, as in life, is that things usually get worse before they get better. Rapture oriented and Judgmental Christians are demonic induced. Where did Jesus and the Apostles say help to support the rebuilding of the nation of Israel, or Judaism?“

There is to much false date-setting now as there has been in the past,” A false Math and a false religion. Many so called Christian groups have tried to use the Bible to predict when the world will end, using a (hardly clear-cut) combination of events mentioned in the apocalyptic Book of Revelation. There is centuries-long tradition of false Christians who have made false predictions of coming judgments, end times. The public having been played for fools. Stop making fools of yourselves

As predicted by Jesus in 70 AD: The Roman Army destroyed Jerusalem, killed over 1 million Jews, took about 100,000 into slavery and captivity, and scattered all the Jews from Palestine to other locations in the Roman Empire. and in 200 AS: Roman Emperor Severus forbade religious conversions to Judaism, In 306 AD: The church Synod of Elvira banned marriages, sexual intercourse and community contacts between Christians and Jews. . In 315 AD: Constantine published the Edict of Milan which extended religious tolerance to Christians. Jews lost many rights with this edict. They were no longer permitted to live in Jerusalem, or to proselytize. 528 AD: Emperor Justinian (527-564) passed the Justinian Code. It prohibited Jews from building synagogues, reading the Bible in Hebrew, assemble in public, celebrate Passover before Easter, and testify against Christians in court. 535 AD : The “Synod of Claremont decreed that Jews could not hold public office or have authority over Christians.” Augustine wrote “The true image of the Hebrew is Judas Iscariot, who sells the Lord for silver. The Jew can never understand the Scriptures and forever will bear the guilt for the death of Jesus.” The New Zealand Church censored of all references to Zion and Jerusalem in the new Psalter and liturgy.

Jesus has removed Israel from God’s plan, rejecting the past rights and destiny of natural Israel. The opposition to Zionism, Judaism is still Biblical. And the Persecution of the Jews can only cease if they converted to Christianity. The simple truth that none of us know with absolute certainty what will happen shortly in the world.

Too many false prophets had foretold the end of the world but not their own death. It is clear from ancient prophesies that the Messiah will come to save his people from their enemies in the end times. And Jesus did that he saved his people those who put their trust in Him. He cannot save the Jews, if they reject Him. To try rather to destroy Jesus, the Church, Christians is to support the work of Satan. Jesus the Messiah has come to destroy the works of Satan, ungodly Jews.

( Mat 7:16 KJV) 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. 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. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Many people think that the end times biblical prophecies about the antichrist, 666, the end of the world , Israel, Zionism, the Battle of Armageddon are still for the weirdoes, religious fanatics , oddballs, extremists, those persons who afraid to face life today, ahead of them and falsely now do look for an escape from it. The Basic problem here also is not the Bible detailed Prophecies themselves but rather how many people misinterpret them, add their views, and it seems few of them even agree with each others still. In reality even these days many Christians SADLY themselves have never studied what the Bible actually says and because of this they often wrongfully leave it to others to read the Bible for them too they thus are too easily deceived by the imposters, cults, sects, wolves in sheep clothing, false teachers, false prophets, false elders too.

.

Undeniably Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, Bible ignorant persons often lie and preach their own false agendas. false doctrines in churches, on the net.. and the main reason for that still is that MOST of them have not been called directly to preach , or to teach by God and they are doing so mostly for money, power, personal fame, recognition, slave hood and demonic influence even..

.

Many of you professing Christians, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Hebrew Israelite’s are deceived, because you believe more in your man made religions, your many different divisions of denominations, your religious lies, your false leaders, false teachers, false prophets, false apostles, and false teachers, more than you believe in the absolute truth of GOD’S word in CHRIST JESUS!

Many of you are deceived by your own religious leaders because you will not seek after JESUS for yourselves, like JESUS commanded you to do so! Many of you are deceived because you do not seek after JESUS with your whole heart, mind, and soul, that you might know GOD for yourself through the revelation knowledge of JESUS CHRIST for yourself!

.

Many of you are deceived because you just love to be deceived, you trust in man more than you trust in GOD, and you love the praises of men more than you love the praise of GOD! Many of you are deceived because you have chosen to become servants of mere men instead of becoming the real sons and daughters of GOD!

.

Many of you are deceived because you lack the revelation knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS, and you have not become GOD’S true chosen anointed prophets, priests, kings, queens, and his present day anointing in the earth, because you allowed men to deceive you! Many of you are deceived simply because you are followers of men, and not true followers of JESUS CHRIST!”

.

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Matthew 24:4-8, 10-14
