“The business of religion for some can be a very profitable profession to enter. Most people think of that sentence in the spiritual sense, but this article is about the physical worldly dollar.

.
It might be argued that the reason why ministers are more likely to make money today is because they utilize more money making opportunities such as writing books, producing movies and speaking engagements.
.
Some of which make enough to have private planes (Eddie Long)  refurbished arenas as churches (Joel Osteen) and flourishing press houses (Rick Warren).
.
There will be many who will say that these pastors shouldn’t be making this much money. Before you judge, keep in mind that the average yearly household salary in The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is $422, so they could be saying the same about you!

So what there no is inconsistency in allowing Muslim prayers in the classroom, work while upholding the banning of a Christian praying?

“Muslim refugees do “bully, persecute and harass” Christians, who came to German refugee camps from the Middle East in search of a better life . Christian asylum seekers from Syria, Eritrea and elsewhere suffer bullying, persecution and harassment at the hands of their Muslim neighbors in refugee camps.  Sometimes, bullying ends in injuries and death threats,”  Muslims, who converted to Christianity, as the group that runs the highest risk of being abused. “They should fear for their life,” he warned, “since Muslim radicals treat ‘apostates’ as if they have no right to live.””

“Too many Muslim clerics  also do  preach violence and terrorism. The local mosques and clerics thus will continue to produce people who will be attracted to the message of radicals. And as long as the governments of Muslim countries do not stand against radical factors and principles prevalent in their own societies, and the clerics who preach it, such as Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey,  etc.,  ISIS  and other Muslim terrorist  groups will continue to find a  breeding ground for their recruits.”

Arab countries should take in the  Muslim migrants but won’t. “And they’re going to try to convince us in the West that they’re peace-loving?”  “And they won’t even take their own people. Are you kidding me?”

Muslim cleric iTarik Chadlioui n Belgium incited Paris jihad murderer to kill unbelievers. Anjem Choudary Charged With Supporting Islamic State and Incitement in UK . Mustafa Kamel Mustafa or simply Abu Hamza, is an Egyptian cleric who was the imam of Finsbury Park Mosque in London, England, where he preached Islamic fundamentalism and militant Islamism. .Sheik Terra.with a Koran in one hand and pistol in the other, calls for the murder of non-Muslims, including several world leaders, on a videotape., he preaches Violence in England… Australian Muslim cleric Feiz Muhammad.has called for the beheading of Dutch anti-Islamic politician .. Bakri Sunni hadiths portray prophet Mohammad as as a violent torturer .. Egyptian cleric Fadel Soliman allows violence as he tours British universities . Another Islamic Hate Cleric uses UK as base to incite to violence and preach support for jihad savagery – See more at: http://pamelageller.com/…/islamic-hate-cleric-uses-uk…/ 

Poll: Half of British Muslims Support Muslim Clerics Preaching Violence – 

Pew Research recently showed that a tiny minority in many of  the  Muslim  majority  countries do now hold a favourable view of ISIS, and all of them turn out to be alarmingly high numbers  that even  provides a breeding ground for Muslim terrorism.  A ban on saying prayers in the street, a practice by French Muslims  has come into effect in the capital, Paris.  Far right protests at the “Islamisation” of the Goutte d’Or district began last year and in December the leader of the French National Front, Marine Le Pen, accused Muslim fundamentalists of using prayers for political ends.

Islam is not primarily a religion but a political control system for economic and territorial domination. It is fascism exactly like Hitler or Stalin that seeks to take over the world. A Muslim proverb says: “First we will wipe out the Saturday people and then we will eliminate the Sunday people. What is the Islamists’ highest goal? It is without doubt to be martyred in a physical battle for Allah in extending his sovereignty or the rule of his law on the Earth. and to have more sex. The highest and greatest reward for Muslim men is to go to heaven where he will have 72 bashful dark eyed virgins (houris) at his sexual disposal and whim.  The description of heaven is exactly what a 7th century Arab male would find appealing in the physical sense only: 80,000 servants, 72 beautiful sex slaves, wine and booze, fruit, shade, fine clothing and jewelry, carpets made of silk, music etc. .The systematic rapes of women  by Muslim men could be yet another consequence of the  mass Muslim migration.

0000 ISIS

Still Islam is not a religion of peace. We all can see that daily world wide.

The Imam of a Salafist Cologne mosque has said the victims of the New Year’s Eve attacks in that city were themselves responsible for their sex assault, by dressing inappropriately and wearing perfume so it is not surprising the men wanted to attack them. [Dressing like that] is like adding fuel to the fire. Absurd defense of Muslim rape.

“A female Islamic professor has claimed that Allah has allowed Muslim men to rape non-Muslim women in order to ‘humiliate’ them,   This degradation of non-Muslims is the essence of Islamic religious practice., When Muslims cry, Allahu Akbar, they proclaim their supremacy to non-Muslims because Allah has allowed them to degrade the non-Muslims. When ISIS fighters shout Allahu Akbar and rape Yazidi women, this is what it means. – Suad Saleh  a professor from  Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt.  Islam hasn’t been hijacked. Even in its moderate form, it is a theology of degrading non-Muslims.  Suad Saleh’s statements are disheartening as they come from a professor at a prestigious institute that is over 1,000 years old. Al-Azhar University is a renowned institute in Cairo, Egypt, that is the oldest degree-granting institute in all of Egypt. The university is touted as “Sunni Islam’s most prestigious university.” Therefore, the statements made by the female professor are of great concerns.”

60% Germans Think their  Country Can’t Manage the Muslim Refugee Influx, 70% Say Crime Will Go Up. The dramatic change in the numbers is attributed to the Muslim rapes, sexual attacks in Cologne and other German cities on New Years Eve. The total number of complaints filed with Cologne police now stands is 653, with 331 of those involving sexual assault, and several of those assaults reported as rape. Germany’s current leaders, led by Chancellor Angela Merkel, stand accused of “betraying their own people to a future of bloodshed and committing national suicide” after they tacitly conspired to hide the rape jihad being waged by Muslim migrants on their women folk. Blaming the Non Muslims, the women for these crimes, rapes is absurdity too..

“In Egypt, victims of sexual harassment have been repeatedly denounced and blamed for the actions of their attackers.. A prominent member of another Salafist party, al-Asala, said something similar, claiming that women “sometimes cause rape upon themselves through putting themselves in a position which makes them subject to rape.” In fact, women around the world face brutal punishment — often sexualized — for having been victims of sexual violence. In Saudi Arabia, victims of gang rape face hundreds of lashes. In India, gang rape has been used to punish women for the crimes of men. All of this fits a pattern, whereby those in power use sexual violence as a political tool to control the movements of those whom they falsely see as the true source of chaos in society: women. Blaming victims of sexual assault sends  false  acceptability around the abusers’ actions by implying that the responsibility lies with the victim rather than the attacker.”

“Mass recent Immigration is bringing Islamic norms, and Islamic attitudes towards women, to the West, and it is making all free women less free, and safe women less safe. ” Now mobs of Arab, African  men descending on a European cathedral to rape Christian women , rape a common Muslim  punishment, was too much now. German police are hunting a group of up to 1,000 men after hundreds of women reported vile sex attacks in the German city of Cologne on New Year’s Eve . The majority of those arrested so far are indeed Muslim refugees, asylum seekers. When these Muslim refugees arrive in Western countries, they bring with them violent and sexist  Muslim cultural attitudes that contributed in part to the mess they fled. Most Muslims tend yo have a deep-seated hatred of all things Western .Thus there is a Rising Anti-Muslim Backlash In  America and Europe today.”

The Messianic Jewish victim of the California attack Nicholas Thalasinos pictured on his Facebook page wearing a scarf-style tallit prayer shawl, before being murdered had argued profusley with the California  shooter Syed Rizwan Farook  about Islam . Nicholas Thalasinos  posts included several that compared Muslims to Nazis.  Nicholas Thalasinos, had became furious with Syed Rizwan Farook. The family of San Bernardino gunman Syed Farook have claimed that he had been teased by colleagues about his long Islamic beard hours after it emerged that he had also clashed with a Jewish co-worker over religion weeks before he and his wife killed 14 at a holiday party.
.
Nicholas Thalasinos, 52, one of 14 fatalities, had heated debate with co-worker Syed Rizwan Farook  Only two weeks ago, Thalasinos was having a heated on-the-job discussion about the nature of Islam with Syed Rizwan Farook, his fellow restaurant inspector and the man police identified as the  Californis Muslim office shooter  loudly declaring that Farook “doesn’t agree that Islam is not a peaceful religion, The details came to light as investigators tried to determine whether the rampage that left 14 people dead was terrorism, a workplace grudge or some combination.  Nicholas Thalasinos, 52, often  defended Israel, and actively debated religion in online forums and in person,.  While Thalasinos’ argument may have triggered the attack at their office party, it is quite clear that the Farook family had been planning to do something big.
 .
“How dare that infidel say Islam is not a religion of peace! I will make him pay for such blasphemy with his life!” Syed Rizwan Farook  A media outlet in California has reported that he told his would-be victim “You will not see Israel”. The County knew he was a problem. Why didn’t they terminate his employment? The attack was triggered (incited) by a Jew.  The Muslim was simply defending his non peaceful religion.
 .
Farook, a 28-year-old US citizen, and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, 27, a Pakistani national who was in the United States on a K1 (fiancee) visa carried out Wednesday’s rampage at a holiday party at the California center. They were killed in a shootout with police hours after the attack. Farook and Malik had a six-month-old baby that they left with Farook’s mother before the shooting, according to a relative.
 .
There is a misconception in the Jewish world: the mistaken belief that all Messianic Jews are Jews for Jesus . In reality, Jews for Jesus and Messianic Jews are not at all the same thing.  Jews for Jesus are advocating Jewish conversion and assimilation to Christianity, while Messianic Jews are advocating a new sect of Judaism built around Jesus, Torah observant lifestyles, and preservation of Jewish identity. The beliefs of Jews for Jesus and Messianic Jews produce two vastly different worldviews, sharing perhaps only the Messianic claims of Jesus. The adherents to each live different lives, eat different foods, worship differently and with different congregations, and pass on different values to their children.
 .
Jews for Jesus is a Christian missionary organization whose goal is to convert Jews to Christianity, with the end result of Jews assimilating into the Christian gentile church. This organization does not generally believe the Torah is applicable any longer. Most Jews for Jesus converts are not observant, and hold the usual Christian beliefs about Israel, the Torah, and Jesus: Israel has been replaced by the Christian Church, the Torah is no longer applicable, and that Jesus came to start a new religion. They see themselves as outsider missionaries and evangelists sent to get people saved by accepting Jesus into their hearts. Jews for Jesus the Christian missionary organization, most certainly see themselves as Christian! As “Judaism never saved anybody”; they absolutely see themselves as Christians and Definitely-Not-Judaism.
 .
Messianic Jews – that is, the people of Messianic Judaism, believe the Torah remains relevant and applicable. Instead of gentile Christian churches that often result in assimilation, Messianic Jews have their own congregations, modeled loosely after conservative Judaism’s services and halakha. They believe Jews remain God’s chosen people. They see themselves within Israel, rather than as outsiders. And they believe Yeshua was the Jewish Messiah who came not to start a new religion but to fulfill the role of Messiah, which included bringing salvation to the nations and ultimately delivering Israel, bringing final peace. These people don’t understand that, what has been “nailed to the cross” is our past SINS, and God’s Torah/Divine Instructions in Righteousness!
.
 .
The “messianic Jew” is   a Jew. They are not Christians Christianity is not Judaism and never will be
 .
Titus 1: 14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
 .
The Bible does not teach us to be partial to Israel or to the Palestinians, or any nation firstly. ” Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one. He will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith” (Romans 3:29-30). Messianic Jews and most Jews, Muslims even, they do not worship the same God as the Christians do cause they had rejected Jesus Christ as their God.  The ethnic Israel and it’s the people are always at enmity with God in rejecting the gospel of Jesus Christ, their Messiah (Romans 11:28).
.
Now natural Israel has no longer any standing before God, or any part in His future purposes. The New Testament Scriptures makes it now certain that the national restoration of Israel after the flesh is not a part of the revealed will of God, but that the reverse is true. God regards natural Israel earthly kingdom with utter detestation, and He will never restore it, Next when John the Baptist preached to the Jewish people, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” he was not announcing the setting up again of the earthly throne of David for Israel as many Jews, some professing Christians falsely hoped, believe it would happen again. Even Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God, Jesus Christ, and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND BUT TO THE NEW HEAVENLY Jerusalem.. (Rev 3:12 KJV) 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.
 .
No Jews or non Jews never the less should still continue to observe the Torah after embracing Jesus as their Messiah.
.
Christian and Jewish Zionism is a false movement that seeks a spiritual and national restoration of Israel, the land of the Jewish people. Specifically, these Zionists falsely still do believe that the Jews have a divine right to the real estate it formerly possessed during the reign of King Solomon, based on the promises that God made to Abraham
 .
Christian Zionists falsely also believe that, once Israel’s land is restored and its ancient borders are secured, Christ will come again to rule with the Jews in Israel for a millennium.
 .
Zionists now have no documented legal legitimate heritage or inheritance after the destruction of all records in the Jerusalem temple in 70 ad . None can prove of whom he is the son, so Zionists even now have no legitimate lineage. Even the common Scripture used by heretics to justify a “Jewish home” is Genesis 12:26 “I will bless those who bless thee, and curse those who curse thee.” This scripture refers however now solely to the justification of the heathen (Gentiles) in Christ, those who are called by the name Christians. Zionism is based on the faulty assumption that God still owes the Jews the land He promised to give to Abraham’s descendants.
 .
“…For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel… That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God” (Romans 9:6,8).
“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.” —Romans 2:28,29
“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.” —Galatians 3:28
Galatians 3:1 (God) redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, SO THAT by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
 .
Jude 1:3 Beloved, my whole concern was to write to you in regard to our common salvation. [But] I found it necessary {and} was impelled to write you and urgently appeal to {and} exhort [you] to contend for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints [the faith which is that sum of Christian belief which was delivered verbally to the holy people of God.
.
Matthew 21: 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to.. It is clear from this declaration by Jesus that the Jews are no longer being blessed by God, no longer the chosen ones, even if they do falsely deny this.. Jews who reject Jesus as the Jewish Messiah are consequently condemned by God, forfeiting the promises otherwise due to them under the covenants.; have forfeited any covenantal status. The Christian Church is the sole the inheritor of the promises made with the children of Israel.;
.
Messianic Jews with their false Judaism have clearly falsely diverted from being merely Jewish followers of solely Jesus Christ, It can be said to be now an undeniable cesspit of Jews hating Christians, the church and Jesus Christ still and they are still wrongfully following Judaism.. They never once do they like to mention the blatant judgment that God will pour out on Israel for its idolatry ,
 .
Cessation, Supersessionism and replacement theology or fulfillment theology are the true Christian interpretations of New Testament Covenant and viewing God’ . The Christian Church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel. As the Christian the church is a continuation of Israel (replacement/covenant theology), Also, covenants made with Israel are fulfilled in the Christian church. Christianity is not reformed Judaism..
 .
“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..
 .
There are no Biblical remaining prophecies concerning Israel to be fulfilled before Jesus returns. The New Testament Bible does not contain any prophecy concerning Israel today, except that she will continue to “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” (Luke 21:24).
 .
No Christians should be focusing upon the Middle East today; but rather, upon preaching the Full Gospel to the world (Matthew 28:19,20). We are also now to love all people, of all nations, of all races
 .
Real Christians lead their lives by being led by the Spirit of God not by the obsolete, redundant laws of Moses .
.
Read Gal 5 :1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
.
What does Jesus’ Jewish identity have to do with anything? This is never magnified in the New Testament. Jesus is the Savior of all who will repent and submissively trust in him. Rev. 7 states there will be people in God’s kingdom from every tribe, people, language and nation all redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. Of what nationality Messiah was as He walked the earth is totally irrelevant

The “female Christ” states that Jesus was God’s first incarnation, but that He did not complete His work;

Demon masquerade.  Five members of the cult went on trial in August accused of the public murder of a woman in the fast food restaurant in May. The group beat her to death in Shandong province after she turned down their request to convert. One of her killers reportedly told police: “she was a demon, we had to destroy her”.

The sect is illegal in China and officials have called it a “social cancer and a plague on humankind”, a violent, evangelical group

And there are physical threats for those church  members who think of quitting.” Its members have been accused of shocking murders and mutilations of people who have refused to convert. They often approach housewives and the most vulnerable in society and have been accused of using aggressive conversion tactics including intimidation, brainwashing, kidnapping and even seduction.

15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.John 10: 27-30

Acts 17:10 Now the brethren at once sent Paul and Silas away by night to Beroea; and when they arrived, they entered the synagogue of the Jews. 11 Now these [Jews] were better disposed {and} more noble than those in Thessalonica, for they were entirely ready {and} accepted {and} welcomed the message [concerning the attainment through Christ of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God] with inclination of mind {and} eagerness, searching {and} examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.  Many of them therefore became believers, together with not a few prominent Greeks, women as well as men.

(Mat 23:37 KJV)  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38  Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39  For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.  24:1  And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple. 2  And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

Psa 118:22-24  “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. 23 This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. 24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

.

Matt 21:42-44 “Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone [Jesus Christ] which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you [Nation of Israel], and given to a nation [New Testament Church] bringing forth the fruits thereof. 44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.”

.

Acts 4:10-12 “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

Psalms 109: Plea for Judgment of False Accusers
.
1    Do not keep silent, O God of my praise! 2    For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful Have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. 3    They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause. 4    In return for my love they are my accusers, But I give myself to prayer. 5    Thus they have rewarded me evil for good, And hatred for my love. 6    Set a wicked man over him, And let an accuser stand at his right hand. 7    When he is judged, let him be found guilty, And let his prayer become sin. 8    Let his days be few, And let another take his office. 9    Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow. 10    Let his children continually be vagabonds, and beg; Let them seek their bread also from their desolate places. 11    Let the creditor seize all that he has, And let strangers plunder his labor. 12    Let there be none to extend mercy to him, Nor let there be any to favor his fatherless children. 13    Let his posterity be cut off, And in the generation following let their name be blotted out. 14    Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD, And let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. 15    Let them be continually before the LORD, That He may cut off the memory of them from the earth; 16    Because he did not remember to show mercy, But persecuted the poor and needy man, That he might even slay the broken in heart. 17    As he loved cursing, so let it come to him; As he did not delight in blessing, so let it be far from him. 18    As he clothed himself with cursing as with his garment, So let it enter his body like water, And like oil into his bones. 19    Let it be to him like the garment which covers him, And for a belt with which he girds himself continually. 20    Let this be the LORD’s reward to my accusers, And to those who speak evil against my person. 21    But You, O GOD the Lord, Deal with me for Your name’s sake; Because Your mercy is good, deliver me. 22    For I am poor and needy, And my heart is wounded within me. 23    I am gone like a shadow when it lengthens; I am shaken off like a locust. 24    My knees are weak through fasting, And my flesh is feeble from lack of fatness. 25    I also have become a reproach to them; When they look at me, they shake their heads. 26    Help me, O LORD my God! Oh, save me according to Your mercy, 27    That they may know that this is Your hand — That You, LORD, have done it! 28    Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, let them be ashamed, But let Your servant rejoice. 29    Let my accusers be clothed with shame, And let them cover themselves with their own disgrace as with a mantle. 30    I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; Yes, I will praise Him among the multitude. 31    For He shall stand at the right hand of the poor, To save him from those who condemn him.

YES GOD ANSWERED JESUS PRAYER AND DESTROYED THE MURDERERS OF JESUS AND AS A RESULT THE TEMPLE WAS DESTROYED AND WILL NEVER AGAIN BE REBUILT

Look at the New Testament fulfillment..

ANYBODY WHO DOESN’T USE THE NAME OF JESUS BUT ANY OTHER NAME IS ASHAMED OF JESUS AND IS GOING TO HELL

Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before myFather which is in heaven.

.

Luke 15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

.

John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

.

Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his namebefore my Father, and before his angels.

.

It is undeniable that most even professing Christians do not take the time or the prayers to let the Holy Spirit teach them fully, personally the truths from the Bible. so they are all mostly in errors cause they believe the lies of the devil, the lies of mere men, and believe their own false human reasons, conclusions. If a man is to understand the word, he cannot rely on human wisdom, human wisdom is insufficient for understanding God. Thus it is still critical, essential important that each  believer studies even the Bible  with the aid of the Holy Spirit as when the flesh interprets all of scriptures. the result tends to be still mostly dead wrong,

.

It should be evident to many people that too many even Jewish persons, Messianic Jews included now too,  still do cut and paste, chose Bible verse they like and cut out , they falsely do reject the ones they do not like, misunderstand and/or try to rewrite the Bible to suit their own liking, they have re-interpret Bible verses for their own purposes, as they now are false revisionists. The supreme New Testament has replaced the Old Testament and the New Testament clarifies what is no longer applicable in the old Testament, all Judaism included.

.

AND NOW WHAT ABOUT THE JEWS, MESSIANC JEWS, ZIONISM, THE PROMISED LAND, THE MILLENNIUM,THE REBUILDING OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE IN JERSUALEM, THE JEWISH RETURN TO ISRAEL?

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

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

.

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

.

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