2 Timothy 2: 1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: 12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.19 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.20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
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,
Where is Zion?How should Christians deal with this situation?
“The believer is admonished by scripture to beware false prophets, perhaps appearing as born again ‘angels of light,’ teaching demonic theories intended to hinder the work of the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ [2 Cor 11.13]. Peter also warns that unspiritual people can falsely interpret the word of God. [2 Pet 1.20] Therefore, it is important that the believer, with the aid of the Spirit, examine the basis for various apocalyptic theories and timetables that are popular these days, rightly and diligently dividing scripture [2 Tim 2.15] Because there now are too many false professing Christians many of those who adhere to UnBiblical still theories are known as Christian Zionists, it is appropriate for us to always to examine the concept of Zionism from the point of view of gospel-centered, born-again Christianity, in accord with the Christian precepts that anything can be tested and must against the Bible, specifically the New testament teachings,
As Paul wrote: ‘All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.’ [2 Tim 3.16,17].
However, when the flesh interprets scripture, the result is dead wrong, as we know from Satan’s temptation of Jesus.
Also Peter, in his struggle against false prophets, said that ‘no prophecy of scripture is a matter of personal opinion,’ not being an act of human will but rather of the Holy Spirit motivating the speaker [2 Pet 1.20,21].
THE ORIGIN OF THE EARLY IDEAS OF ‘ZION’
“The first biblical mention of ‘Zion’ is Deut. 4.48 and is another name for Mount Hermon in Lebanon. This ‘Zion’ derives from ‘Sirion,’ a name given to the mountain by the Sidonians. This Zion is referred to again in Psalm 133.3 when the poet compares brotherly love to ‘the dew of Hermon coming down on the mountains of Zion.’
‘Zion’ is next cited in 2 Sam 5.7, where it is reported that ‘David took the stronghold of Zion (that is, the City of David).’ This was a fortified enclave held by the Jebusites on a site later known as Jerusalem. David built his palaces in this fort and laid the groundwork for the first temple, which was built by his son Solomon, on a nearby hill. The term ‘Zion’ then came to refer to the entire palace and temple compound. It was often used specifically for the temple or the temple and its hill. Scholars think ‘zion’ was originally a word for ‘hill.’
‘Zion’ was often extended in the Bible to mean the entire city of Jerusalem, where the general populace lived adjacent to the palace-temple compound. In fact, sometimes the Old Testament Bible extends the definition of ‘Zion’ to include the people of Israel or a remnant of that people.
Of a prophecy given to Habbakkuk, God said, ‘For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal and will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay'[Hab 2.3]. “
We all also may say that the launch of Jesus’ salvation mission was CLEARLY NOW the end times PROPHECY FULFILLMENT now too..
“Jesus, obeying the Spirit, told his hearers that a scripture from Isaiah that he had just read had been ‘fulfilled in your hearing.’ [Luke 4.21] Jesus halted his reading at ‘to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord,’ leaving unread the other part of the couplet ‘and the day of vengeance of our God.’ [Is 61.1-2] Note that the appointed time may seem, to human observers, to be close at hand or even overdue.”
Such as “the Return of Jesus Christ” or as per others the coming false “Rapture:.the supposed escape from the future great tribulation on earth even while most Christians are already undergoing great tribulation.
“So we can see that if the prophecy isn’t fulfilled at the expected time, then it must be fulfilled in an unexpected way.
So then, if the Bible itself demonstrates the impossibility of drawing up a superficially logically consistent timeline of events of old, what makes us think we can use biblical references to map a ‘logically consistent’ history of the future? “
And this is why so many people are wrong when they try to predict future, present events, supposedly ongoing prophecy fulfillments..They are still not being led by God to understand the realities, truths..
“Even the atheists who seek the truth in modern physics have found that time is supple and relative, and not at all like the typical person’s view of it. At extremely short intervals, time can be said not to exist. On larger scales, as Einstein proved, time is relative to the observer. Here’s an idea of what that means: If you left earth on a starship traveling near the speed of light and traveled deep into space and then back, you would find that your twin brother was substantially older than you upon your return. In fact, you could conceivably return to an earth where centuries had elapsed, though for you only months had elapsed.
When Martha was grieving for Lazarus, dead for four days, she told Jesus she believed Jesus could get any favor from God. Jesus then told her that her brother would rise again. ‘I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the Last Day,’ she answered. ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never perish. Do you believe this?’ You see, Martha had the traditional Jewish understanding of the Old Testament prophecies, but she was hoping Jesus would find a way to revive her brother anyway! Her faith was honored when Jesus said, in effect: Don’t stand on tradition! Just BELIEVE! This is GOD talking! [John 11.22-26] The great and awesome day of the Lord had arrived for Lazarus and was witnessed by Martha. It wasn’t the sidereal day that counted, but rather belief when the word came. The awesome day of the Lord is on a spiritual (which does not mean ‘unreal’) plane: ‘SEE IT NOW! ETERNAL LIFE!’ Also the commonplace idea of linear time may not suffice for all prophecy.
Most Earthbound people can be misled by a spirit of deception that puts falsehoods into the mouths of wicked prophets [1 Kings 22.22] and thus blinded by a ‘strong delusion’ [2 Thes 2.11].
While it is true that the born-again believer is fit to understand scripture, as illuminated by God’s Spirit, it is still possible for the believer to be influenced by the delusive nature of this world.
As Christians, we are strongly advised to study scripture [2 Tim 2.15]. We cannot however understand what we read without the help of the Holy Spirit. Though scripture is written in Hebrew and Greek, its origin is divine, and divine language is beyond human ken [Rom 8.26]. Scripture means what God says it means.
Who has plumbed the mind of God? Who has exhausted the deep well of the wisdom of God? [Rom 11.33,34]
God’s thoughts are far above our thoughts [Is 55.9]. We must beware assuming that we can know on our own, or with the help of mere others, by education, studying, understand the full meaning of a scriptural passage or group of scriptural passages. Many people have already read the Bible and still know noting, professing Christians included. They did it without the holy Spirit;s involvement
Dead literalism is effectively refuted by Jesus in a number of places, such as when he healed on the Sabbath day and when he upbraided the scribes and Pharisees for focusing on specific technicalities rather than on the point of God’s teachings: love of God and one another. “
The Bible shows that, without inspired interpretation, we have the dead letter of the law. Ironically that is what most false Christians preach still,
“The word of God is ‘alive and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart,’ says the writer of Hebrews [Heb 4.12], after quoting several Old Testament passages.
So if a man is to understand the word, he cannot rely on human wisdom [1 Cor 1-9]. Just as the spirit within a man knows his thoughts, the Spirit of God knows God’s thoughts [1 Cor 2.11]. In fact, the Spirit reveals scriptural meaning to believers ‘for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.’ [1 Cor 2.10]
Or, as Paul wrote elsewhere, the new arrangement for Christians is ‘not of the letter but of the spirit; for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.’ [2 Cor 3.6]. So the assertion that ‘the Bible is literally true’ should perhaps be changed to read that ‘the Bible contains no error.’ Since God ‘makes all things work together for the good’ for his chosen [Rom 8.28], he is able to make human missteps into truth. We know this from Caiaphas, who, as high priest, spoke a truth, though he had no idea of the divine profoundness of his words [Jn 18.14].
An example of literalness is the Mosaic command for Jews to put symbols of God’s word on their foreheads and hands [Deut 6.8]. Some Jews to this day observe this custom. But, isn’t it plain that the real point of this thought is that the Jews were to think about God’s word and practice it? Why would God want people to honor this custom but not honor God’s will in the more important area of behaving in love, honesty with one’s neighbors? He would not.
Many modern Bible texts identify words attributed to Jesus with red type or quotation marks. However, the Greek texts have no such graphical devices. This means that there are some passages sometimes attributed directly to Jesus that might actually be divinely inspired editorial comments. Also, there are variant literal versions of some of the words attributed to Jesus, though they are close in substance. With the aid of the Spirit, it is possible for the contemporary mind to understand the meaning of these words.
And the sayings of Jesus clearly were compiled early on and later woven into the synoptic gospel accounts. Does this make the gospel accounts wrong? Only if one insists on literally precise chronological narratives. Otherwise, they are rather like the modern newspaper report that lays out the relevant details in a way that ‘tells a story.’
If a newspaper reporter extracts a couple of relevant sentences from some document and includes a one-sentence paraphrase in his story, he could not fairly be accused of improperly quoting the document. We should give Bible writers the same leeway. To wit, Paul, whose eyesight was poor and who probably relied on memory, in several places conflates scriptural passages in order to make a point. For example, Rom 9.33 apparently splices Is 28.16 and Is 8.14. This splice is easily defended as summarizing later prophetic fulfillments. So Paul is not in error, but we would be foolish to be excessively literal: there is no single such passage in the Septuagint (the Greek-language Bible in use at the time). :
“In Rom 11.26, Paul quotes scripture thus: ‘The deliverer will come from Zion, he will remove ungodliness from Jacob. This is my covenant with them, when I take away their sins.’
The quotation is more a paraphrase than an exact quote. In fact, some might argue that the paraphrase misquotes Is 59.20,21 to give it a meaning it does not have. However, the import of the paraphrase is justified elsewhere, such as Psalm 14.7 and Psalm 15.
Jesus had is assuring believers of his steadfastness, asked rhetorically whether a mother could forsake her child. It turns out that the relevant verse is Is 49.14, where I hear the voice of the Messiah.
Consider Mt. 21.5, which tells of Jesus’ triumphal donkey ride into Jerusalem. Two old testament scriptures, Is 62.11 and Zech 9.9, are spliced together here, illustrating that different prophetic utterances can be fulfilled in one action.
Or consider John 12.15 which quotes Zech 9.9 but omits ‘shout, O daughter of Jerusalem.’ Yet, the omission is inconsequential. The meaning of Zech 9.9 is faithfully preserved. Writers of the period did not follow rules of quotation used today. So we cannot easily ascribe error here. “
As Paul said, human wisdom is insufficient for understanding God. So we can appreciate that when God speaks to man through prophetic scripture, he is infusing man’s tribal viewpoint and his local legends with the Spirit in order to lift the hearer into an expanded consciousness. He is using man’s language and man’s way of thinking to reflect God’s thoughts.
Because of this, the word of God may seem to some to be ambiguous or inconsistent. Also, linear history seems to matter to modern humans far more than it does to God, who is focused on spiritual growth.
Our ability, even with the Spirit, to comprehend prophecy ‘through a glass darkly’ [1 Cor 13.12] (as a dim reflection) has a counterpart in modern astronomy. Before powerful telescopes made most of the physical cosmos observable, one could only make educated guesses as to most of what was out there, even though scientists had Einstein’s highly accurate general theory of relativity as their ‘bible.’
It takes the Holy Spirit to interpret the whole Bible now, both the old and new Testament and posting one line verses, even about Zion is not telling the whole truth now still too, Nor is it falsely acceptable to refer solely to the Old Testament and neglect the no New Testament people. But yet that is what unacceptably happens in most pasting about I love Israel, Jews, Zion and Zionism now too
The Bible itself has already has confirmed that a new order replaces the old order, as Heb. 8.8-13 says, quoting prophecy [Jer 31.31]:
‘”Behold, days are coming, says the Lord, when I will effect a new covenant with the House of Israel and with the House of Judah; not like the covenant which I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; for they did not continue in my covenant, and I did not care for them, says the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the House of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. And I will be their God. And they shall be my people…” When he said, “a new covenant,” he has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear.’
And when does the new covenant appear? It is made evident at the Feast of Pentecost, when, as Peter said, quoting from Zechariah, Jerusalem became ‘the city of truth.’ That passage [Zech 8.2-17] also says that the Lord is ‘exceedingly jealous for Zion.’ The covenant dawned at Pentecost and is still in process of fulfillment.
Or, as Heb 12.22-24 points out, the terrifying experience of Mount Sinai is no more, but rather, ‘you have come to Mount Zion and the City of the Living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant…’ Plainly, Zion here is a spiritual place, the realm of salvation. The old world of the old covenant will be shaken and only what is unshakeable will remain, but ‘we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken’ [Heb 12.27,28].
‘For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks [Gentiles], whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one spirit.’ [1 Cor 12.13].
So then the new Zion is filled with the new Israel, the redeemed Jews and Gentiles. Under the new covenant, ‘the virgin daughter of Zion’ [2 Kings 19.21] has become the bride of Christ [2 Cor 11.2, Rev 21.9,24]. ‘For out of Jerusalem will go forth a remnant, and out of Mount Zion, survivors’ [2 Kings 19.31]. This prophecy was fulfilled by the fact that the Jewish identity survived Nebuchadnezzar’s destruction of Jerusalem, but that prophecy is fulfilled in an expanded sense by the fact that born-gain Jewish Christians, the ultimate survivors, fanned out from Jerusalem… “
Clearly we all need to again seriously review actually what the New Testament and the Holy Spirit says about the Jews, Israel, the Promised land, Zion, Jerusalem, new Jerusalem, etc.,. and see how right we really were in our own past conclusions, summations now too.
The Christian population is still dropping in Israel, Palestinian territories.. Christians make up only 1% of the population in the Palestinian territories today, down from 2% in 2000, and that is what Israel wants.. the disappearance of the Christian population is a “social disaster.” The steady emigration of Christians in Israel and the Palestinian territories is Not God’s will..
“ Christians are to be troubled when injustice is committed. We are especially troubled when it is perpetuated through the appropriation of Christian theology for ideological purposes.” Especially if it is the Christian Zionism now as it leads to the dehumanization of Israelis and Palestinians., is not based on traditional teaching or doctrines of the Church., fosters fear and hatred of Muslims and non-western Christians, it is a movement with negative consequences for Middle East peace and the world. Many Christians even the evangelicals ones do not want to be identified as ideological Christian Zionists as it contradicts the central commitments of Christianity to justice and peace-making. Many rightfully do question its false theological assumptions.
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
“An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power; And my people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?” (Jeremiah 5:30-31).
“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16).
Rev John Hagee ’s web site tells us that his “vision is for world evangelism. The burning passion of his heart is to win the lost to Jesus Christ in America and around the world.” That statement is not altogether true since he will not evangelize Jews and teaches salvation on another basis than the Gospel for the Jewish people. Interesting that the Apostles of Jesus did not preach this falsehood. Paul said that the wrath of God had come on Israel to the uttermost because they had rejected Jesus and the complete gospel of salvation (1 Thes 2:16).
Rev John Hagee who is the Pastor who left his wife and two small children and and married a women in his congregation on top of all that has no problem with Supporting solely the Jews to Live in Israel and Palestine.. He did this while was preaching to others that “Christians don’t steal or lie, they don’t get divorced or have abortions.” John Hagee was once the leader of the charismatic Trinity Church in 1975 and was the father of two children. John Hagee had an adulterous affair with a woman and admitted to immorality in front of his church. Pastor John Hagee then divorced the mother of his two children and married a younger woman (Diana Castro, now Diana Hagee) from that same congregation. Pastor John Hagee abused his position of trust and power to take to cheat on his wife. John Hagee married the woman he cheated on his wife with and immediately became the pastor of another congregation- the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio Texas. Rev John Hagee was kicked out as a minister with the Assembly of God organization for his admitted adultery. Needless to say his false supporters can find their own false justifications for this..
The same John Hagee who had said “All hurricanes are acts of God because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God and they were recipients of the judgment of God for that.” But do first note that Jesus Christ who is God had himself had rebuked the winds and the waves.. Matthew 8:27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him! Luke 8: 25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
“I’m delighted to present my latest book, In Defense Of Israel. This book will expose the sins of the fathers and the vicious abuse of the Jewish people. In Defense Of Israel will shake Christian Theology. It scripturally proves that the Jewish people as a whole did not reject Jesus as Messiah. It will also prove that Jesus did not come to earth to be the Messiah. It will prove that there was a Calvary Conspiracy between Rome, the High Priest and Herod to execute Jesus as an insurrectionist too dangerous to live. Since Jesus refused by word and deed to claim to be the Messiah, how can the Jews be blamed for rejecting what was never offered?” Rev John Hagee. Any New Testament Bible literate persons knows this is falsehoods, rubbish . Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Messiah (Christ)? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son (1 John 2:22).
The same Rev John Hagee dumps all Christians into one great anti-Semitic slop-jar and accuses them all falsely of being Jew haters. He falsely claims the origin of anti-Semitism was begun by early Christians and we assume by this he means by Jesus, the Apostles, and early Believers. The same John Hagee that had created and distributed a commercial featuring him attacking the Catholic Church for helping plan the murder of Jesus but don’t ask me how this happened, considering that the Catholic Church wasn’t founded till much later after the Jews undeniably killed Jesus Christ. He falsely preaches that by giving large sums of money to the Jews and falsely even denying Jesus is the Messiah, any Gentile can find salvation and greater favor with God and modern Israelites. For him falsely Calvary plus friendship with the still antichrist Jews = salvation.
How could any true Christian now who confesses that the lord Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, belong to this Messiah rejecting organization, say that Jesus was not the Messiah of Israel or that Jesus was a Messiah but not the one for the Jewish people. He was a Messiah only for non-Jews.? They cannot. “Every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ (Messiah) is come in the flesh is not of God” (1John 4:3a).
“This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ (Messiah); not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1John 5:6).
John Hagee is not of God, never was of God, is not a true man of God, is not a real Minister of the Gospel of Christ (Messiah).
The same John Hagee gets now in return for his heretical ministry a $2.1 million dollar 7,969 acre ranch with not one, but FIVE lodges, a managers house, a gun locker, a smoke house, a skeet range and three barns. In the year 2001, John Hagee received $842,000 in salary and $414,485 in benefits making him one of the best paid Pastor. He certainly is trying to get all the rewards on earth very much unlike Jesus Christ and the Apostles too.
There is still no New Testament substantiation, or predict diction, prophecy that Israel would have their promised land returned after the Jews being evicted by the Romans from Israel. in the whole new Testament.. yet Rev Pat Robertson was telling John Kerry that pursuing peace strategies in the Middle East is “asking for the wrath of Almighty God to fall on this nation” because “any deal that includes territorial concessions to the Palestinians, including Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem, will lead to divine retribution and ‘catastrophic’ consequences” and yet there is absolutely no such Biblical references in the whole New testament.. If you think he is smart by saying so, please indicate the verse to us all..
The term “Jewish People” is a political construct, an invention. for most Jews are still not even not religious or Zionists.Very few Jews are Zionists Besides the majority of Jews, including many Zionists, have not the slightest intention of going “back” to the Holy Land, much preferring, to stay put in the USA, north London, or Brooklyn or wherever.. The “Land of Israel” is barely mentioned in the Old Testament: the more common expression is the Land of Canaan. When it is mentioned, it does not include Jerusalem, Hebron, or Bethlehem. Biblical “Israel” is only northern Israel (Samaria) and there never was a united kingdom including both ancient Judea and Samaria. Even In traditional Judaism there is no injunction to “return” to the “land of Israel”. The ritual “next year in Jerusalem” that is part of the Passover Seder prayer was never a call to action, or to reconstitute a state
The New Testament of Jesus Christ has superseded the Old testament for the Jews. We all as should take issue with any idea that we will reap some sort of damnation from God if we help a war-torn area achieve peace. A two-state solution would save thousands of lives and bring peace to an area wrought with suffering — it’s time to waive the true interpretation of the Bible around, as it’s always time to save lives.
Most Americans also still do not go along with Pat Robertson’s views, Or John Hagee’s according to the Public Religion Research Institute, a majority (53%) of American Jews say that, generally speaking, they would support the establishment of a Palestinian state, overcoming out the 42% who say they would be opposed. Additionally, a poll by the U.S. State Department indicates that 74% of Israelis believe a peace agreement that leads to both states “living side by side as good neighbors” to be “essential or desirable.”;
Recent Opinion polls of Israelis, Palestinians and Americans still have rightfully found a majority support for a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Even most Jewish Americans continue to support “assertive American leadership to achieve a two-state solution.” as 72 percent of American Jews agree that a two-state solution is an important national security interest for the United States. Even the Jewish “attitudes toward settlements are highly negative,” and “by a 60 to 40 percent margin, American Jews oppose the expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.” Peace everywhere is what everyone rightfully desires rather. and not more Jewish or Muslim wars..
Rom 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
(Rom 7:21 KJV) I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
(Rom 3:20 KJV) Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: Rom 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The new Israel, the Christian Church, composed of personally saved by Jesus Christ Jews and gentiles replaces the old Israel in Heaven and on earth.. for the reality is that the new Israel is only the Church, the body of Christ which looks forward to the new Jerusalem too (Rom 9:6 KJV) Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel 7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 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.
Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: 11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. 13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away
Rom 2:17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God, 18 And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law; 19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, 20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. 21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? 22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? 23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?
Rom 3:9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (Rom 5:8 KJV) But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Rom 5:20 KJV) Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound.
And the more you know and try to keep the old Testament laws the more of a sinner you make yourself out to be rather.
So how do you explain to those falsely proud, self centered, soulish Bible ignorant seducers, deceivers , not Holy Spirit led professing believers that their false desire to keep all of the 10 commandments as a part of the mosaic law that these false, rather still non Christian boastful people are now trying to make a mere big show in the flesh to others as to how supposedly great, good they now are, when these big liars now in reality really now are rather trying to boast to others of something also they can never even all do anyway.. and never without being led by the spirit of God, even that leading, help of the Holy Spirit is by faith, for neither you and they cannot ever keep all of those commandments, not even close.. and no one even comes close, not even Apostle Paul.. Only one person ever kept those commandments, Jesus Christ only ,, Rom 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. :5 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. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And are we now also the false CHRISTIANS who try to to keep the Sabbath cause the devil and his followers demand that we do so and why do they falsely insist on it? there are actually many false reasons bad people, even bad pastors insist on it.. they want to put you under their bondage to the law and tithing, to steal your money by demanding tithes too, they want to lead you away from Jesus Christ so you can go to hell with them too.
I also do often could not help it but too many false persons are afraid to be known as Christians, do not want to be associated with Jesus Christ, so they use his name in vain, they use another name for Jesus even. and they often falsely do not want to be associated with Apostle Paul because he had left his Jewish heritage even.. (2 Cor 11:13 KJV) 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.
(Rom 1:16 KJV) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
SINCE THE TIME OF CHRIST ON THE BIGGEST DEMONIC THREATS TO CHRISTIANITY HAVE BEEN UNDENIABLY THE JEWS, THE MESSIANIC JEWS ALL WHO TRYING TO SLIP IN BY THE BACK DOOR ARE PUSHING THEIR OBSOLETE, NO GOOD, FALSE RELIGION OF SALVATION BY THEIR OWN WORKS..
The ‘Messianic Jews’ are just another sect within Judaism. They are not CHRISTIAN.
Do you understand that Christianity teaches that Judaism is the ‘old’ covenant which Christianity has replaced?
Thus nobody can follow both religions; they are mutually exclusive.
If I eat meat, can I still claim to be a vegetarian? No, of course not! What a realy mess this all is.
Messianic Jews are still just as much Jews as anything and not the real Christians of Jesus Christ. Seventh day Adventism, Judaizers, Messianic Jew want to have one foot in Hell, Judaism, and one foot in Heaven, Christianity,. Impossible.
I respect Christians but I don’t respect ‘messianic Jews’ because they lie claiming they are both jews and Christians.. give it up, you are one or the other.
All Jewish people, Messianic ones too can only be saved the same way as Gentiles can, by grace through faith in Jesus without the works of the law OF MOSES WHICH WAS DONE AWAY AFTER JESUS CHRIST CAME AND DIES ON THE CROSS
I agree that once you accept Jesus, you’re a Christian and no longer a Jew or a messianic Jew.
Messianic Jews, Judaizers Seventh day Adventists do now still have more in common with the Jews than the true Christians
Christians are NOT ‘or ever will be the restored Jews’
YOU CANNOT BE JEWISH AND EMBRACE JESUS. It is as simple as that.
Sadly still many persons like the false Baptists, Plymouth Brethren, Catholics, Fundamentalists, Evangelicals, Jews, Seventh Day Adventists, Judaizers too, etc., they all still do want to live by their own Gospel, a simplified one that is still basically based on the Old Testament where you do not have to seriously repent of your sins, or be filled with the Holy Spirit for that unlike the New Testament only was for the select few
Could you be Christian and DENY Jesus? Same logic. You can’t be Jewish, a Jew and also now EMBRACE Jesus. if you observe the Jewish Saturday Sabbath you realy are not observing the Sunday Christian day of worship now too.
If someone born to a Jewish mother THEN embraces Jesus and practices Christianity, then that person is NOT a ‘Jew for Jesus’. They are either a New Testament Christian, or an Old testament Jew..
The Influence of the Hebrew Roots movement (HRM) has grown by leaps and bounds over the last century in America. It’s impact in this end time is being felt in all areas of Christendom of those who call Jesus Lord. For those who are Born of the Spirit, if they are Bereans and study the scriptures comparing this movement with the Gospel given to the NT church, they would see bright flashing danger signs. Sad to say, many are being deceived.
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT ALMOST ALL THE JEWS ARE STILL SOME OF THE BIGGEST LIARS EVEN CLAIMING FALSELY THEY BELONG TO GOD ARE HIS CHOSEN ONES STILL THE TRUTH IS THAT THEY ARE STILL BIG BAD WOLVES IN SHEEP CLOTHING COMING TO YOUR SITE TO STEAL YOUR UNSUSPECTING FLOCK, SHEEP..
The Hebrew Roots Movement which encompasses Messianic Judaism and both in fact are one and the same, just packaged differently in order to deceive more people, is gaining momentum in these last days. While Messianic Judaism is more Christ oriented, it is really just a stepping stone to the HRM. Many Jews who have accepted Christ as Messiah, are attempting as the Jewish Christians in the early church, to mesh Grace with Judaism under the Old Covenant, making all inclusive with one another the Works of the Law, as well as the ordinances, such as the Sabbath and other holy days and combining them with Christianity. The great Apostle Paul had much to say about this in his letters to the early church. Read the book of Galatians where Paul addresses this heresy and warns the early church that if they follow this teaching, they have fallen from grace.http://www.angelfire.com/la/jlush/dangersHRM.html

-WHO IS JESUS CHRIST – IS HE A JEW, GENTILE OR NEITHER NOW?
-What does the word chosen mean in the Bible?
-About those Jews, persons who still falsely refuse to acknowledge openly Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior
– Even Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God, Jesus Christ, and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/even-heaven-awaits-jewish-return-to-god-jesus-christ-and-rather-not-to-the-promised-earthly-land/

-Falsely “Torah-observant” -Jewish and Gentile Messianic Judaism
Zionism, Zionists, Jews, Israel
(James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
Isa 58:13 ¶ If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, [from] doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking [thine own] words: Isa 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, a…nd feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].
It may feel more spiritual to keep the Jewish Saturday Sabbath requirements, but really it only shows you do not read the whole Bible, that you are really still ignorant of it, even of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit too who is not leading you still.. if you observe the Sabbath laws then you have to observe also now all the over 550 other Jewish Bible commandments perfectly as well but even then you still will go to Hell cause you are no longer saved by God’s grace, or by the finished work of Jesus Christ but are falsely trying to be saved now your own false works, like Cain tried.. Jesus had come and he had abolished the Jewish and Sabbath requirements.
Ellen White was a false prophet and we can do this by proving that the Pope (Catholic church) DID NOT change the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. If the Pope indeed changed the Sabbath to Sunday, history should tell us the name of this Pope. She never named the Pope that made the change. Where is the SDA Church support from history that the Pope changed the Sabbath to Sunday? The Church was begun by Christ and led by the Apostles after Pentecost. We do, however, also hold to the idea that Sunday observance is biblical, and the origins are referenced in the New Testament (texts like Heb 4, Col 2, Rom 14, Gal 4, Acts 20, 1 Cor 16 and others,
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 the christian Church history. Colossians 2:16-17 says God abolished the Sabbath, and Constantine also did not change the Sabbath to Sunday, he merely created the first “Sunday closure law” because Christians had been worshiping on the first day of the week since the first apostolic times. “Christians in Rome” had not changed the Sabbath to Sunday since we already do know that the first Church in Jerusalem worshiped on Sunday. The Apostles in 33 AD introduced Sunday worship. So stop all those lies as to who actually changed the Sabbath
The Historical Record!
- Christians always worshipped on the first day (Sunday)
- They state that they stopped keeping the Sabbath to worship on Sunday started with the apostles. None of say they kept the seventh day Sabbath. The only mention of Sabbath keeping was by Eusebius in 300 AD by a cult-sect known as the Ebionites, who Eusebius says also worshipped on the first day. (Ebionites were a cult of Judaizers who enforced circumcision, rejected Apostle Paul’s teachings, denied Jesus’ virgin birth and his deity.)
- They partook of the Lord’s Supper (communion) every first day.
- They called the first day (Sunday) the Lord’s day.
- They called the day Jesus rose from the dead, the Lord’s Day.
- They said the reason they worshipped on the first day, was because it was a weekly memorial of the day Jesus rose from the dead!
- They outright state that no one prior to Moses (Adam, Noah, Abraham etc) ever kept the Sabbath because it was Moses who first gave the Sabbath law and the ten commandments to man!
- Augustine actually stated that Christians are bound to keep 9 of the ten Commandments [because the New Testament repeats and re-introduces them in a different form] but are free to break the Sabbath!
- The earliest Christians never considered Sunday to be a rest day or the Sabbath. You will observe that the first mention of Sunday being a day of rest was in 220AD by Origen. This is the beginning of the current false doctrine, that Sunday is the Christian Sabbath, as taught by most churches today.
- While Sabbatarians will quote 20th century authors who guess about what happened 1900 years earlier, we quote Christians whose writings are 1900 years old and spoke what they saw!
The record of history, from the Resurrection of Christ, Christians have always worshipped on the first day of the week (Sunday) and never on the Sabbath (7th day). Sunday is not a Christian Sabbath or a day of rest, or a holy day to be kept. It is the day God requires all Christians to gather together to worship and eat the Lord’s Supper (communion, break bread) Acts 20:7. Christians do not keep the ten commandment law of Moses. This is not to say that Christians are free to steal, murder and commit adultery, just because the 10 commandments have been abolished. No! Christians are under a new law, a better Law, the law of Christ, (Gal 6:2) a better covenant (Heb 8:6-7).
The 10 commandment law including the requirement to keep the Sabbath day were abolished at the cross along with all the rest of the law of Moses. God gave a covenant at Mt. Sinai through Moses to the Jews. It is called the first/old covenant/testament. The ten commandments are the foremost visible representation of this first/old covenant was replaced by a new covenant called, among other things “the law of Christ”. 100% of the old covenant was abolished. No part of the Old Covenant remains in force. No one prior to Moses (Abraham or Adam) ever heard of the Sabbath law much less kept it. The very first time that anyone was commanded to keep the Sabbath was in Exodus 16. The word “Sabbath” is not even found in the book of Genesis. Gen 2:2-3 was written by Moses to tell Jews at Sinai the meaning behind WHY they were to keep the Sabbath, NOT WHEN the Sabbath was instituted.
We can quote Christians whose writings are 1900 years old indicating the Sabbath change http://www.bible.ca/H-sunday.htm
THIS DOES GOD KEEP THE SABBATH OR DOES HE STILL DO HIS WORKS EVERYDAY?
In Colossians 2:16-17, the apostle Paul declares, “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.” Similarly, Romans 14:5 states, “One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.” These Scriptures make it clear that, for the Christian, Sabbath-keeping is a matter of spiritual freedom, not a command from God. Sabbath-keeping is an issue on which God’s Word instructs us not to judge each other.
Sabbath-keeping is a matter about which each Christian FIRST needs to be fully convinced in his/her own mind.
The Sabbath requirement TO THE JEWS ONLY command was to do no work on the Sabbath day (Exodus 20:8-11).
Acts 2:46-47 “Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” If there was a day that Christians met regularly, it was the first day of the week, Sunday, not the Sabbath day (our Saturday) (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2).
Since the time of Jesus, the STILL GOING TO HELL Jewish community has FALSELY its observance of the seventh-day Sabbath, from sunset Friday through sunset Saturday.
Jesus BEFORE HIS DEATH was speaking of the Ten Commandments keeping only to the Jews, as well.
The Ten Commandments and the Sabbath, did not exist from the Garden of Eden.
Sabbath day and the Ten Commandments are for the Jews, till Jesus Christ by his death came to change Sabbath observance to Sunday worship and to issue new Commandments
The Ten Commandments did not exist as a formal code of law until Moses Sabbatarians haven’t comprehended the fact that the word “Sabbath” is never found in the book of Genesis.
The first case of Sabbath keeping was in Exodus 16 at Mt. Sinai. Here Jehovah gave Moses the “Ten Commandments”, for the first time in world history. If the Ten commandments did not exist before Moses, then neither did the 4th commandment unless we find some command or example before Moses.
The truth is that Adam never kept the Sabbath, nor did Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph or anyone in while in Egyptian bondage. Moreover, all those righteous men already mentioned [after mentioning Adam. Abel, Enoch, Lot, Noah, Melchizedek, and Abraham], though they kept no Sabbaths, were pleasing to God; and after them Abraham with all his descendants until Moses
God originated Adam uncircumcised, and inobservant of the Sabbath, consequently his offspring also, Abel, offering Him sacrifices, uncircumcised and inobservant of the Sabbath, was by Him commended… Noah also, uncircumcised – yes, and inobservant of the Sabbath – God freed from the deluge. For Enoch, too, most righteous man, uncircumcised and inobservant of the Sabbath, He translated from this world… Melchizedek also, “the priest of most high God,” uncircumcised and inobservant of the Sabbath, was chosen to the priesthood of God.
Sabbath was not part of God’s eternal law in heaven prior to creation!
Sabbath Jews also do lie when they say “my commandments” and they assume it is the ten commandments. And now Jew fully even keeps the ten commandments or the Sabbath
Christ, is equal with God, then you know that God works continually, yes, he rested on the seventh day or creation, but he still continues to work on the Sabbath, in fact, the Sabbath was when God’s work shows is most evident. in the few cases that Christ was accused of breaking the Sabbath, one of which was when he and his disciples were picking corn to eat immediately, and there was another incident when Jesus healed a woman who had an infirmity lasting eighteen years, but Jesus healed her, and the Pharisees said of him he was breaking the Sabbath, saying he could heal on other days, instead of praising God for the woman’s healing. Jesus replied that they were hypocrites, saying that they take their ox or donkey and lead it to water, on the Sabbath, making that comparison.
Jesus , God works miracles every day, and even on the Sabbath .God works day and night, endlessly. So does everyone in reality anyway.
Jesus left no doubt whatsoever that all the Law and the Prophets are based on love. Notice: ” ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment; and the second one is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS” (Matt. 22:37-40).
In his first epistle, the apostle John amplified Jesus’ statement even more. He wrote, “The one who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. On the other hand, if anyone is keeping His Word, truly in this one the love of God is being perfected [made complete]. By this means we know that we are in Him. Anyone who claims to dwell in Him is obligating himself also to walk even as He Himself walked” (I John 2:4-6).
These inspired scriptures make it abundantly clear that anyone who is claiming to know and to love Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, but does not keep His commandments, is a liar! His commandments refer to the laws of Jesus and not the Mosaic laws that have been done way with.
The new Israel, the Christian Church, composed of personally saved by Jesus Christ Jews and gentiles replaces the old Israel in Heaven and on earth.. for the reality is that the new Israel is only the Church, the body of Christ which looks forward to the new too (Rom 9:6 KJV) Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel 7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 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.
Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: 11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. 13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
(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.
(Rev 21:2 KJV) And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Judiazers, a deliberate demonic activity, Judiazers have falsely existed from the first century, and are still one of the biggest oppponents to Jesus Christ in the Church today..
“Within the early church even there was an ongoing conflict between two groups who both claimed to be followers of Jesus Christ. One group held to the teachings of Jesus as taught by the apostles regarding salvation in Christ alone. The other group also held to the teachings of Jesus but added certain Jewish religious practices, particularly circumcision. As the New American Commentary explains, “…Paul waged a steady campaign against a group of false teachers, commonly known as Judiazers, who had sown great confusion among the apostle’s recent converts by teaching that becoming Jewish was necessary for salvation.”
It is interesting to note the many beliefs held in common by both the original followers of Christ and the zealous Judiazers. Apparently, both of these groups claimed Christ as savior, both held to the authority of Scriptures, both acknowledged the presence of the Holy Spirit, both were “evangelistic,” and at one time or another both groups were accepted as genuine followers of Christ by many first-century Christian congregations. Certainly, both groups claimed to love Jesus and His Gospel.
Paul was particularly forceful in his instructions regarding the Judiazers and their gospel+religious works. The apostle charged, “Evidently, some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.” Paul’s solution to this problem was that “even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” The gospel of the Judiazers “is really no gospel at all.” (Galatians1:6-9)
The apostles instructed believers to give no ground when it came to preserving the purity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. John pointedly stated, “Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God.” (2John 9) The writer of Hebrews warned, “We must pay more careful attention therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.” (Hebrews 2:1) “
Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God…. Jude 1:3-
“if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. …such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:4,13)
I do not believe you will go to hell for observing the Sabbath on Sunday, but there are no Sabbath rituals, requirements now.. but that is the right day to go to church, but if you observe the Saturday Sabbath you are still only a Judiazers, and a person under bondage to sins, laws.. you are still unforgiven even if you are relgious though and you are doing your own thing here still which is a major sin .. in Reality Jesus Christ is not your Savior or the sole Lord of your life.. Saturday worshippers do not understand all this cause as they are not Holy Spirit led, filled clearly even.. see http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/03/25/about-the-the-new-covenant/
The word of God teaches that Christians must also be “exposers” in Ephesians 5: 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them. 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. 14 Therefore He says: ” Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
1 Timothy 5:20 Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.
2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
Titus 1:13 This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith,
Titus 2:15 Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.
Rev 2:9 KJV) 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.
Christians pretenders who hold to the Saturday Sabbath are still falsely listening to the false teaching of men over the teachings of the new testament, and they clearly reveal how ignorant they are Jesus, the Holy Spirit and of the teachings of the Apostles now too. they are imposters pretenders Christians! who have forsaken the right path, deliberately or ignorantly, there is still no excuse of it too, forsaken the new covenant, now of God’s sole way of Salvation and now are also trying to add to Jesus Finished work on the cross…. But, why so much rightful anger and condemnation of Sabbath keepers, ARE THEY NOT SINCERE? AND NOT JUST DECEIVED, it real does not matter they are going to hell for doing so..for already they have missed the narrow path of Jesus Christ! Salvation by, through the lordship of Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven FOR ANYONE, THE JEWS INLUDED NOW..
Acts 4:10 KJV 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.
(Acts 17:31 KJV) Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
Like the Jews at the time of Jesus Christ here on earth too most people do not understand, do not want to admit the truth as to what really happens to anyone after they do die here on earth.
The only truth for now and forever is that Jesus Christ is the sole way of salvation, there is no other way, name by which any man, Jew or gentile can be now or in the future saved by. No other way to escape Hell..
Now why does any person still falsely think or teach that 144,000 horsemen will come back for the Chosen race (the Jews) before the 2nd coming of Christ? Firstly they fail wrongfully to admit that Jews are no longer the chosen race, they the Jews in God’s will, kingdom, reign have all now been replaced by the Christians, the Christians now are the chosen ones.
(Heb 9:27 KJV) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
The Bible says it is appointed for all men once to die and after that an immediate, final judgement, they all next only go to heaven or hell immediately upon death based on what they, anyone did with Jesus Christ here on earth, accepted or rejected him, and there is no other path for one’s personal salvation, there no purgatory as well for any Jew or non Jew too. And now there is nothing Biblical in what anyone can as about the Jews positive future. Jesus is the only way of salvation for all. And these false Jewish oriented hopers, dreamers, teachers have still a a complete false assumption that the Bible next says that God will save all of the Jews or reestablish the Jewish nation for this will never occur. Theirs is even the the same error that Apostle Judas had made That is why so many Jews next here on earth will be deceived by the antichrist, he will tell them the lies they want to hear.
Any persons falsely expecting a resurrected nation of Israel, a continuation of the Jewish religion, a totally Jewish controlled, dominated world next will be disappointed for in reality any and all of the Jews positive present, future are now all actually dead as far as the Bible,and God are now concerned, and now and forever too. They the Jews will never be resurrected again to be a nation, a group or what ever under God’s will.
It is tragic, sad that too many people still cannot accept that truth, undeniable fact, that the Jews already had their chance to become Christians, they all had mostly rejected it, and so next it is the end of them as being anything of value, purpose in God’s sight, end..
But some people do still still try to grasp at non existent straws to bring back and save all or most of the Jews even at a later date.. These sad people their hope, views, beliefs are just as wrong, a false expectation as anyone expecting another chance for anyone, someone to get saved in Heaven next for a persons who has already died unsaved.
Look it at it’s simplicity, once there were the Jews as God’s chosen, now, next there are only the Christians, they are the chosen ones, and not the Jews In the future some more Jewish person will be saved and become Christians, but only a small remnant.. And then it is the end of the world. Jesus comes for all people, Christians included and not Christians and they will get what they had personally sowed and immediately. Heaven to be with Jesus, hell to be away from Jesus….
(1 Pet 4:17 KJV) For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
(Heb 9:28 KJV) So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Very little can be known about the reality of the culture, surroundings at the time of Jesus Christ here on earth because there are almost no written records, writings at that period available today, less than a hand full.. Now also “Who real cares what the Hebrew or Torah now says/”.. I prefer the Greek Christos, Jesus the Christ, the one anointed with the Holy Spirit and who can baptize you with the Holy Spirit. There are too many professing Christians persons now also lying to the Jews, trying to get their favor, by claiming they accept the inapplicable to the Christian the old Jewish traditions, cultures, even many Evangelical persons thus who are trying to convert the Jews to Christianity, etc., rather. God will not bless this approach because it is based on lies.. All Jewish religious practices still are contrary to teaching of the New Testament, contrary to Christianity, which clearly states that God does not accept the Jewish religion as a valid religion anymore. All Jews have to give up Judaism and to accept solely Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal savior and they become Christians now only, not Christian/jews. The Bible says there are no longer no Jews or Gentiles in Heaven but only Christians, as they are one in Jesus Christ
“Acts 2:1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 2:3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. 2:15 “For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 2:16 “But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 2:17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 2:18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. 2:19 I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. 2:21 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.’
JESUS THE CHRIST MEANS JESUS THE ONE ANOINTED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO BAPTIZES YOU ALSO WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AS WELL AS BEING THE LORD JESUS THE SAVIOR ..
Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 1:9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
Bless the name of Jesus! Come out of this name battle nonsense… The WORD OF GOD SAYS “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21.
The Hebrew equivalent is, “Yeshua”…. so what is all of this Yahushua religious junk plastered all over youtube? I don’t see it in my Bible!
Whoever tells you that Jesus won’t hear you unless you call Him “Yahushua”, by the authority of the Word of God they are a viper and do not listen to them. Jesus will always answer to Jesus!
When anyone needs GOD intervention in their life, when their lowest depraved point in sin, convicted of the Holy Spirit, they all cry out to JESUS, and He answers them alone! and they do not call out to a false Jesus.
Faith in the Son of God, Jesus Christ, is what saves you dear sinner. Place your faith in Him, and He will give you His Spirit and also miracles, signs and wonders will follower. You are born and sealed into the family of God! Just reach out and take the free gift because you can’t earn it.
Acts 10:44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. 10:45 And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. 10:46 For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, 10:47 “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.”

So Jesus died on Good Friday, rested in the tomb during the following day, Saturday, which was the Sabbath, and then rose early on Sunday morning, the day we call Easter Sunday. Sunday is the day that the Lord Jesus rose from the dead. The Jewish people who had rejected Jesus continued to worship on Saturday, the Sabbath. But it was the Christians who celebrated Jesus’ resurrection, and the driving force to gather on the first day of the week.
The OT system of Law required keeping the Sabbath as part of the overall moral, legal, and sacrificial system by which the Jewish people satisfied God’s requirements for behavior, government, and forgiveness of sins. The Sabbath was part of the Law in that sense. In order to “remain” in favor with God, you had to also keep the Sabbath. If it was not kept, then the person was in sin and would often be punished (Ezek. 18:4; Rom. 6:23; Deut. 13:1-9; Num. 35:31; Lev. 20:2, etc.).
Again with Jesus’ atonement, we no longer are required to keep the Law as a means for our justification. The requirements of the Law were fulfilled in Christ. We now have rest from the Law. We now have “Sabbath,” continually.
“Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I directed the churches of Galatia, so do you also. 2On the first day of every week let each one of you put aside and save, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come,” (1 Cor. 16:1-2).
Notice here that Paul is directing the churches to meet on the first day of each week and put money aside. But this is not tithing, it is giving to the poor.. tithing today is not giving to the poor as it is stolen by the Pastors to build religious empires, Church buildings
Firstly if you NOW have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord then you must also now die to self, die to all your own goals, desires, will, culture, etc., and NOW ONLY serve God alone, follow solely after God’s will.. and this is not an option too.
Now the sole and the only, true Israel today is the Church, the bride of Christ.. so the church alone can claim these promises of God IN THE BIBLE, today..
“And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel” (Ex. 19.6).
This simply means God will usher in the Messiah through Israel, and he has already done that as well.. Jesus Christ.
Jews, Judaism, and are exalting themselves divisively and Messianic Jews have given their lives to a false Christ, one that accuses falsely the Church and Christ our Creator. Jesus did not say to create a denomination called Messianic Judaism, saying “I of Cephas” (denom 1) or “I of Apollos” (denom 2, etc.) or “I of Christ ” (congregationalist). We are not even to say “I of Christ” the Bible says since a church is not a congregation but a locality of believers. And the Bible makes a distinction between the false Church or false tares that try to look like the saved wheat and the true Christians.
If the Messianic Jews are born-again, saved in Christ by His precious blood, then why are they so hostile to Christians the Church-body of Christ. It seems to me too that it all comes back to a racism. a false pride by Jews, falsely exalting themselves as Jews even in matters of Christian fellowship and Church gatherings.
Messianic Judaism is a cult of Jews (and non-Jews) who even still falsely now accuse the Church of persecuting the Jews. And these rather false Messianic Jews are not our real brothers and sisters in Christ otherwise they would not attack the Church (Messianic Judaism itself is not nor ever will be the Church) for we real Christians are the Church and we love even the Jews though sadly only a remnant will remain be saved still.
And Messianic Judaism is a contradiction in terms because Judaism clearly rejects THE Messiah Jesus Christ. There is only one right Messiah who already came in His first coming. Judaism still falsely claims it has its own Messiah but it is not the Christ. Christians always do reject Judaism and Pharisees, so it is wrong for a Christian to call himself a Messianic Jew or any derivative thereof. If you are a Messianic Judaism Jew you still really do worship a false Christ. The Messiah already came. We do not wait for His first coming but His second coming. Therefore, now you should be a Christian. Period!
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” (Rev. 20.4)
The “true Israel” of God, which in the OT was comprised of all ethnic Jews who were circumcised in heart, finds its NT expression in the Church, now comprised of all believing ethnic Jews and all believing ethnic Gentiles. Or, to use Paul’s imagery from Romans 11, the one Olive Tree = True Israel = the Church in which are both natural (Jewish) branches and unnatural (Gentile) branches, but in all cases “believing branches Jesus taught that his resurrection was the raising of the True Temple of Israel. He has replaced the priesthood, sacrifices, and sanctuary of Israel by fulfilling them in his own glorious priestly ministry and by offering, once and for all, his sacrifice for the world, that is, for both Jew and Gentile. Believers from all nations are now being built up through him into this Third Temple, the church that Jesus promised to build.
Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God, Jesus Christ, and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND BUT TO THE NEW HEAVENLY Jerusalem.. In reality the first God promised restoration of the remnant of Israel had been met.. The aspiration of returning to their homeland was first held by Jews exiled to Babylon some 2,500 years ago – a hope which subsequently became the reality. (”By the water of Babylon, there we sat down and wept when we remembered Zion.” Psalms 137:1). And the full promised by God restoration of the remnant of Israel and of the Gentile has been already priory fulfilled, the latter one fulfilled by God in Jesus Christ on Pentecost , in Jerusalem, as witnessed, as stated in the books of Acts before the 70 AD dispersion.. which most of the Jews wrongfully reject even till today and next wanted to have their own Jewish only state.. In Acts 15:14-18, James confirms, interprets the prophecy of Amos 9 that describes the rebuilding of David’s tabernacle as finding its fulfillment in the calling out of Gentiles and the progressive formation of the Christian Church Zionism, on the other hand, “is a secularist, largely atheistic ideology” that emerged in the late 19th century. It is unbelievable, undeniable that the professing Christian people who do not know the Bible can be so easily deceived, led astray too by many others, pastors and Jewish persons, Zionists included.. And had most people most Christians read the Bible for themselves they would have known the whole truth and would not have been so easily misled by others. The 2 Jewish dispersions by the gentiles were both predicted beforehand. One was predicted by the prophet Jeremiah in the Old Testament, and one by Jesus Christ himself in the New Testament.
It is important to note that in the first prediction about the dispersions of Israel from their promised land there was a God given promise of their return. It is important to note that in the second prediction about the dispersions of Israel from their promised land there was no God given promise of their return. There actually is no Biblical promised prophecy, promised second return of the Jews to Israel in the Old Testament or in the whole Bible now too. after their second dispersion from Israel by the Romans in 70 ad.. . Not even one Bible verse even for the Jewish return in 1948.. Do try prove me wrong..
Jesus, who is God clearly said to all persons now.. JN 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much …fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 15:6 “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. (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. (Heb 1:2 KJV) Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; (Acts 2:36 KJV) Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
Christian Zionists falsely now contrary to the New Testament do support the rebuilding of the nation of Israel, Jerusalem as the center of Worship, and the rebuilding of the Temple and are in error because of their false refusal to acknowledge Jesus Cjrist as Lord and how Jesus and the Apostles reinterpreted the Old Testament, with a false assumption that Old and New Testament run at times parallel into the future, the former speaking of Israel and the latter of the Church.
(Mat 7:21 KJV) 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. (Rom 2:9 KJV) Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
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. 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.
(Jer 2:13 KJV) For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. (Jer 2:32 KJV) Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride… her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number. (Jer 7:23 KJV) But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. (Rom 9:7 KJV) Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called 8 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. (Rom 9:32 KJV) Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone; (Rom 16:18 KJV) 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. (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.As per the next full supposed re-gathering of the twelve tribes of Israel note this had occurred in Pentecost, in the book of Acts where all of the tribes of Israel were represented, present thus. (Acts 2:2 KJV) And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. (Acts 2:36 KJV) Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. (Acts 16:31 KJV) And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Reality also now is that Apostle Paul was once a Jew but he rightfully gave up his Jewish religion, and followed solely after Jesus Christ so did all of the Apostles, and that was why the Jews hated them, and still do.. There is no Jews or gentiles now in Heaven only born again Christians, all those persons anointed with the holy spirit.
(Isa 58:11 KJV) And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. (Isa 58:12 KJV) And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
(Neh 8:10 KJV) Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
Some people 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. http://www.twitlonger.com/show/l6d28p

Isa 49:1 Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. Isa 49:2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me; Isa 49:3 And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

Isa 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
(Song 2:10 KJV) My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. (Song 2:11 KJV) For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; (Song 2:12 KJV) The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; (Song 2:13 KJV) The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away
Now still even from the first century, there are many, many false persons, Judiazers, pushing falsely Judaism and it’s value on Christians, even the cults and not just the Jewish persons now too.. and do note this that none of them are from God.. they are all demonic rather or in fact sadly they are still just LIARS, bullies, some even immoral agressive jungle fighters, control freaks . https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/07/07/control-freaks/
(1 Tim 1:8 KJV) But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; (Rom 5:20 KJV) Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: (Rom 5:21 KJV) That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
When it comes to the demands of the Old Testament Laws still too many persons do not understand it’s requirements and they should not be preaching about it to others.. God’s grace supercedes the Laws demands.
Jews are almost all going to Hell for God is no longer on their side.. they the Jews had left Him, Jesus Christ.. there will be a remnant come out of Israel saved but they will be Christians now and no longer Jews.. The sole basis of the Christian faith today, which is why it is also called the New Testament as well, is not at all the Old Testament Judaism but the New Testament Jesus. The true Christians since Jesus Christ next always left their old Jewish Synagogues all together… and all Christian Jews, Messianic Jews too need to do this today as well, also they are supposed to give up their Jewish roots, Jewish culture, Jewish religion when they accept Jesus Christ as their master, lord and savior .The only main portion of the Bible that you really need to read, to follow is the New Testament because we are no longer under Old Testament covenant, law – essentially the the New Testament replaces the basic requirements of the Law and the Prophets of the Old Testament. Worshipping the Jews over any other nation is still a great sin.. Thomas I suggest that you quote the whole new Testament honestly.. there are no Jews or Gentile in Jesus Christ, the church, Heaven but only Christians… the fact that the Apostles were Jews, does not mean they wrote the new testament.. the Holt Spirit wrote the New testament..the same Holy Spirit you clearly do not still have, who does not lead you into all truth it seems.. otherwise you would not be stuck on the past, but would be in the New testament. Now still even from the first centuary, there are many, many false persons, Judiazers, pushing falsely Judaism and it’s value on Christians, even the cults and not just the Jewish persons now too.. and do note this that none of them are from God..
There are almost no historical documents, writings available world wide or only a handful at the most at the time of Christ.. so who even realy does knows what the Jews or Jesus did, wore, ate, dressed like, besides what is stated in the New Testament.. .. no one .. so forget these false Judiazers, false brethren now too and their false cultural teachings, bondages..
Christian Zionists falsely now contrary to the New Testament do support the rebuilding of the nation of Israel, Jerusalem as the center of Worship, and the rebuilding of the Temple and are in error because of their false refusal to acknowledge Jesus Cjrist as Lord and how Jesus and the Apostles reinterpreted the Old Testament, with a false assumption that Old and New Testament run at times parallel into the future, the former speaking of Israel and the latter of the Church.
WE NEED TO FIRSTLY ASK THE JEWS TO REPENT OF ALL THEIR WRONG DOINGS, OF NOW TRYING TO Reconquer THE PROMISED LAND, EVEN STILL NOW, IN THE FLESH., RATHER THEY ARE STILL RETURN TO JESUS CAUSE THEY THE JEWS ARE ALL STILL ALL GOING TO HELL EVEN IF THEY NOW ARE LIVING IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL FOR WITHOUT JESUS TODAY AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR EVERYONE, THE JEWS INCLUDED THEY GOES TO HELL.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/even-heaven-awaits-jewish-return-to-god-jesus-christ-and-rather-not-to-the-promised-earthly-land/
ALSO NOW YOU CANNOT CONTINUE IN DELIBERATE SIN, REJECTING JESUS CHRIST’S AND THE NEW TESTAMENT TEACHING EVEN AND STILL CLAIM YOU ARE EVEN ANY KIND OF A CHRISTIAN.. YOU ARE NOT ANY KIND OF REAL CHRISTIAN IF YOU REJECT ANY PART OF THE NEW TESTAMENT.
The curse on this one barren fig-tree speaks of the character of God as righteous and sin-hating. The curse that fell on Christ speaks of the character of God as merciful, one who loves his own people with a love that is determined to bring them to glory. None of us is fruitful, no not one, but God made his Son, the only fruitful one, a curse, that God might be just in pardoning us, and that the fruit of righteousness might be found in us by the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Confess your barrenness to God, and then pray “Make me truly fruitful O Lord!” That will mean that you’ll need to be changed. A bad tree bears bad fruit. A bad tree cannot bear good fruit. So cry to God that you might be changed, made a new creation. Cry today, “Change me O Lord!” Begin to pray that prayer in your own words now, and don’t stop until you know that God has heard you and the beginnings of new fruit are seen in your life. Then work with the Spirit so that the fruit increases thirty-fold, sixty-fold and a hundred-fold. Why not?
And the spin doctors in Israel, Jewish supporters are hard at work justifying all of their actions, the good and the bad ones. Some they even falsely manage to paint supporters of Israel as moderates and all others as being anti-Semites, and many Jews still are often are deflecting attention away from Israeli injustices against the Palestinians but still the Criticism of Israel is not an anti-Semitic act
Catholic Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga compares the Jewish controlled media with “Hitler,” because they undeniably are “protagonists of what he does not hesitate to define as “a persecution against The Church.” Catholics rightfully do not accept that Jerusalem should be the indivisible capital of the State of Israel, but that it should be the capital of the three great monotheistic religions Christianity included.. This does not make him or anyone else who agrees with him now an out and out Jew-hater or a Virulent anti-Semite. Anti-Semite is too often a slanderous, false label made by Jews to bash those who do not agree with their acts, views.
According to the common hegemonic narrative in Israel today there are two malicious forces at work. The first is the old familiar false anti-Semitic impulse of the world at large, an infectious bug that supposedly affects everyone who comes into contact with Jews. and the malicious Palestinians who are seen as being solely bent on destroying Israel through some atavistic impulse, the only conceivable way of confronting Palestinians is through military might. Jews tend to fail to see their own negative acts and personal contributions that has historically caused them to be despised and twice removed from their own land by the prevalent governments. Israel here again is in a state of denial. Sadly even most of the Israeli Jews are still fed daily by the Jewish controlled media that hides from them the realities of their occupation, stagnation or discrimination. The general price in Israel for any honest intellectual dissidence is foretold: slandering, exaggeration, condemnation and excommunication..
It should be evident to any Bible reader that everything the Jews do or did is, was not God sanctioned even as once bing the chosen ones not even the Wars between the Jews and the Babylonians, Romans. http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/even-as-to-the-promised-land/
Prime Minister Golda Meir lying had said ‘This country now exists as the fulfillment of a promise made by God Himself. It would be ridiculous to ask it to account for its legitimacy.’ That was the past as for the present yet still there is no such New Testament approval, prediction.. And the false Jewish supporters can solely refer to the Old Testament verses now such as Jeremiah Chapter 31, Joel 3:2, Amos 9:15 and Psalm 83: for they undeniably have no New Testament substantiations, support for Israel’s return or possession now of the past promised land. They now take the land in their own strength and not God’s or by his approval http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/08/anti-jewish/
Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, falsely had said: ‘Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial.’ No one? Even God has already and many times!
Israel’s many too many present Human rights violations, one sided resolutions, acts, and their lack of diplomatic acts, lack of political negotiations even these days is ludicrous and they all falsely tend to be masked by: their claims of their own security interests, plus the GROSS DISTORTIONS THAT Israel over all is under attack, that Israel is acting for the good of the country, the Problems also always lie with the international Communities and not Israel, that any criticism is a threat to Israel is anti-Semitic, that any “emotional blockade”, an economic, cultural and political boycott of Israel, is a collapse of Israel’s status in the world, that any criticism of the Jews is anti-Israel, or the too often false statement that Israel really only wants PEACE and not more land, that Israel presently is not empire building NOR FORCING THEIR RELIGION ON OTHERS . Now Israel undeniably, clearly they do for SURE seem to use a HEAVY, UNDERHANDED ways TO GET their PEACE, in using their supposedly natural right to defend themselves AS MANY OF US TOO OFTEN CAN still rightfully see. The often immoral, murderous persons of Israel who kill innocent citizens included they too must understand that the ends never do justify the means they use to get there.. and that their eye for an eye approach which too often now goes to extreme is also idiotic..
Many evangelicals do now support a two-state solution and creation of a new Palestinian state that includes the vast majority of the West Bank. They support justice for both Israelis and Palestinians. If all of the learned men are going to be truly historically honest, surely they must admit that the Jews have every right to inhabit the land of their fathers, the covenant land given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by none other than God himself and do next admit that right was the same God who took the right next away from them, from that land now twice too… THE NEW TESTAMENT DOES NOT talk about the Jews return next their third return to it too. But God still wants the Jews and Palestinians brothers to live in peace together. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/07/15/israel-and-palestine/
The stranglehold that a small minority of ultra-Orthodox rabbis has achieved over the courts, governments in Israel is a great unacceptable travesty too. A Jewish rabbi has issued a book giving Jews permission to murder non-Jews, including babies and children, who may pose an actual or potential threat to Jews or Israel. “It is permissible to kill the Righteous among non-Jews even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation,” Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, who heads the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in the Yitzhar settlement in the occupied West Bank, wrote in his book “The King’s Torah.”
Israel as we all can know still tends to use Disproportionate force to deal with any aggressor, wrongs. Israel’s air strikes, savagery, Targeting civilians, aimed directly at civilian areas in the Middle East has been one of their most immoral, cruelest, unjustifiable acts too now. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/what-the-canadian-conservatives-do-not-say-about-israel/
Jews falsely have only one goal in mind in regard to the Palestenions, to kick out all Palestinians out. As the world often sees it, many see it, clearly selfish, self centered Israel generally is a bully. This Bully country Israel has been often seen as the plague in the Middle East. Israel propagandists are falsely Making the Bully Israel the Victim. Israel has never done everything in its power to avoid civilian deaths in Gaza or elsewhere. When this Bully Israel is on a war, revenge rampage, nobody can stop him. The world is sick and tired of this bully Israel and it’s bad acts. Enough is enough. The self centered, despotic “Neighborhood Bully” Israel too often still cannot see it’s own faults, falsely tries to paint the picture as everyone else rather being the aggressor, abuser, bully. These shameful approaches by this Bully Israel who has a clear arrogance of all others personal rights falsely cannot tolerate any dissension, anti-Israel protestors, possible loss of any domination power. Israel falsely, too often sees the world as being itself all wrong. Israel and Israel’s systematic bullying must be dealt with as one would deal with any other bully. The neighborhood bully Israel has almost already been driven out of every land it had. Israel seriously continually needs to overcome being a Bully, needs to lose most of its drunken power swagger, and Israel needs now to recover the desperately needed personal, real humanity and compassion. Serious negative repercussions need to be carried out on Israel. Or once again the Bully Israel must be taught a hard lesson and removed from it’s land as in the past. The World hostility toward Israel is largely an expression of international exasperation that continued conflict with the Palestinians rightful land claims
” Those who question the legitimacy of Israel’s actions are immediately labeled anti-Semitic by some quarters, effectively undermining the turn of phrase by using it in this context. We are right to question the state of Israel’s actions and I am not anti-Semitic for doing so. I think the religious fundamentalism exhibited by certain Zionist and Orthodox Jewish groups needs to be dealt with in a similar manner to Islamic fundamentalism, I don’t see the distinction between the two, both are equally repulsive. ”https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/08/02/zionism-zionists/.
(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.
There are many major unacceptable lies I too do encounter on the net.. no lie is still really acceptable too.
One lie of which is that we all should still pray for the peace of Jerusalem supposedly? As Jerusalem is so important to God now? Really? But that was not at all what Jesus taught us all to pray in the Lord’s prayer firstly too. Right or wrong?
No…w Zionism as it presently being presented is from the pits of hell.. Now do try to prove me wrong..
One here really would do better to focus on what God really says over what the Jews and other false preachers would tell you. Now what is so wrong about asking the Lord to place that hedge of protection around His Chosen ones? the Jewish PEOPLE?
DREAM ON.. THE JEWS ARE NO LONGER GOD’S CHOSEN ONES.. THE LOST THAT STATUS WHEN THEY OPENLY HAD REJECTED JESUS CHRIST THE MESSIAH. TO BE MORE ACCURATE THE TERM CHOSEN ONE REFERS TO THE CHRISTIANS ONLY IN THE NEW TESTAMENT NOW AND NOT TO THE JEWS.
NOW WE VALID CHRISTIANS DO ALWAYS STILL FIRSTLY BASE THE VALID DOCTRINES SOLELY ON THE NEW TESTAMENT, EVEN THE SUBSTANTIATION BY JESUS OR THE APOSTLES, NOT JUST ON SOLELY ON ANY OF THE OLD TESTAMENT REFERENCES..
BY THE WAY THERE ALSO IS NO NEW TESTAMENT REFERENCE, THAT SUBSTANTIATED THE 3RD JEWISH RETURN TO THE HOLY LAND, THE PROMISE LAND. THE WAY I SEE IT NOW
And we all should not show false partiality to the Jews, even now wrongfully overlook all of the Jews wrong doings, even the fact that the Jews have been killing Christians even in Lebanon, no partiality even because once in the past they the Jews were God’s chosen people.
Today’s Jews and many others now are too quick to associate with the Promised Land of Joshua’s time. However, as per the conditions of the Bible , the New Testament and even the establishment of the State of Israel by the United Nations in 1948 it now raises many valid questions about that relationship validity. ” Those who question the legitimacy of Israel’s actions are immediately labelled anti-Semitic by some quarters, effectively undermining the turn of phrase by using it in this context. Now what right can Israel today use to claim again their God promised land when they have as in time pasts also openly, undeniably rejected God, even Jesus Christ as their God, Messiah, King, Savior, Healer, Lord, and the same Jesus who clearly predicted the expulsion of the Jews from Israel under the Romans next did not spell out the date of their return
It’s true, that some supporters of Israel occasionally use “anti-Semitism” to shield Israel from criticism.Anti-Semitic to criticize Israeli construction in Jerusalem?; one man’s anti-Semitism is another’s freedom to criticize Israel.“Let it be clear: Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic, and saying so is wrong, But singling Israel out for selective condemnation and opprobrium — let alone denying its right to exist or seeking is destruction — is discriminatory and hateful, and not saying so is dishonest.” Ottawa Protocol
Less any one gets lost, there are Good Jews, Good Arabs, good Americans, good Canadians and bad ones too. But is seems both Jews and Arabs are equally guilty of hate, unforgiveness, revenge, theft, murder, an eye for an eye approach so we can realy not support either side as being mainly in the right http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/jews-arabs-none-of-them-politically-correct/
