1. To see or understand the difference; to make distinction; as, to discern between good and evil, truth and falsehood.
2. To have judicial cognizance.
If we do not have knowledge and understanding of our history, heritage and God, then we do not have discernment.
It is a matter of life and death if we are lacking true knowledge and understanding.
Genesis 1:4 And God saw (H7200- beheld) the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
As a metaphorical separation, enlightenment from ignorance.
Genesis 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew (H3045- discerned) that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
Their eyes were opened (knowledge acquired), and they knew they were naked. Shame. If their sins were mental, why cover their genitals? If their sin was of eating an apple, why didn't they cover their mouths?
3:8 And they heard (H8085- perceived) the voice (calling) of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife (woman) hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God amongst the trees of the garden.
Genesis 6:12 And God looked upon (H7200- observed) the earth (land), and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth (land).
Way is derek, meaning road, course of life or mode of action. All flesh had corrupted/ruined Yahweh's course of life.
Genesis 11:6 And Yahweh said, Behold, the people is one (of one purpose), and they have all one language; and this (profane thing) they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined (made evil plans) to do.
11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language (H8085- understanding), that they may not understand (H8085- discern) one another's speech.
Go down should be descend to bring down, which is much more emphatic.
Genesis 18:1 And Yahweh appeared (H7200- caused Himself to be seen) unto him (Abraham) in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;
Genesis 22:18 And in your seed shall all the (Adamic) nations of the earth (land) be blessed; because you hast obeyed(H8085- listened to, discerned) My voice.
The Jews have never blessed anyone or done anything good.
The white race (true Israel) has brought civilization, cultivation, industry and inventions, sanitation, and the gospel to the world.
Acts 3:25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in your seed shall all the kindreds of the earth (land) be blessed.
Kindreds of Abraham. All the tribes of the race of Adam.
4Maccabees 13:12 And another, Remember of what stock ye are; and by the hand of our father Isaac endured to be slain for the sake of piety.
When you can discern who is Israel and who is Jew, scripture will make sense.
Genesis 25:27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning (H3045- knowing) hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain (wholesome, perfect) man, dwelling in tents.
Esau's children (the Jews) are cunning and know who they are. We children of Jacob are easily fooled by the Jew's deceptions because we lack discernment. Our people are blind and in the dark because we believe what our pastors and “churches” teach and do not study and examine what we are being taught. Judeo-Christianity is NOT Christianity.
Genesis 26:4 And I will make your (Isaac's) seed to multiply as the stars of heaven (the sky), and will give unto your seed all these countries; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth (land) be blessed;
26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed (H8085- listened to) My voice, and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws (torah).
Genesis 30:22 And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened (H8085- gave heed) to her, and opened her womb.
Genesis 41:32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.
41:33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet (H995- prudent, discerning) and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.
Yahweh blessed Joseph with understanding and wisdom.
Exodus 2:11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown (18 years old), that he went out unto his brethren (kinsmen), and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.
2:12 And he (Moses) looked this way and that way, and when he saw (H7200- observed) that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
2:23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage. (Deut 26:7)
2:24 And God heard (H8085- with attention) their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. (Gen 15:13-14)
Psalm 105:8 He hath remembered His covenant for ever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations.
105:42 For He remembered His holy promise, and Abraham His servant.
2:25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect (H3045) unto them.
The Septuagint ends as: “... and was made known to them.”
Exodus 9:13 And Yahweh said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith Yahweh God of the Hebrews, Let My people go, that they may serve Me.
9:14 For I will at this time send all My plagues upon your heart, and upon your servants, and upon your people; that you mayest know (H3045- understand, discern) that there is none like Me in all the earth (land).
3Maccabees 2:6 You didst make known Thy power when You causedst the bold Pharaoh, the enslaver of Thy people, to pass through the ordeal of many and diverse inflictions.
Romans 9:17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised you up, that I might shew My power in you, and that My name might be declared throughout all the earth (land).
Yahweh made Himself known among the children of Israel, that they would discern who their God was.
Exodus 19:4 Ye have seen (H7200- observed) what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto Myself.
All these from H7200 have to do with seeing, looking, appearing, etc. All are a form of discernment.
Exodus 20:18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed (moved away), and stood afar off.
20:19 And they said unto Moses, Speak you with us, and we will hear (H8085- listen): but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
20:20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that His fear (reverence) may be before your faces, that you sin not.
H2398 sin, means (miss the mark of duty and responsibility to observe these commandments).
Leviticus 5:17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of Yahweh; though he wist (H3045- understand, discern) it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.
Even committing sin in ignorance, one is guilty. That is why we must have discernment.
Leviticus 26:21 And if ye walk contrary unto Me, and will not hearken (H8085- obey, listen) unto Me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
Numbers 16:28 And Moses said, Hereby you shall know (H3045- understand, discern) that Yahweh hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind (heart).
Deuteronomy 1:13 Take you wise men, and understanding (H995- discerning), and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.
Deuteronomy 4:39 Know (H3045- Understand, discern) therefore this day, and consider it in your heart, that Yahweh He is God in heaven (the sky) above, and upon the earth (land) beneath: there is none else.
He wants us to discern who He is. God is a title, we must address Him specifically by name. When you use a title, such as Lord or God, you are not distinguishing who.
Deuteronomy 5:1 And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear (H8085- listen, obey, discern), O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that you may learn them, and keep, and do them.
The Hebrew has “study them”, as part of learn them. And “guard them” (keep them).
Deuteronomy 9:6 Understand (H3045- discern) therefore, that Yahweh your God giveth you not this good land to possess it for your righteousness; for you are a stiffnecked people.
Exodus 32:9 And Yahweh said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
Yahweh did not give us His promises and covenants because we are righteous. The promises come from Abraham's allegiance (faith). He promised these things to Abraham's seed. His seed through Isaac are the anointed, dedicated, called, chosen, and special people. Only through obedience can we claim these promises and covenants. That is why we must have discernment.
Deuteronomy 32:7 Remember the days of old, consider (H995- regard) the years of many generations: ask your father, and he will shew you; your elders, and they will tell you.
Exodus 13:14 And it shall be when your son asketh you in time to come, saying, What is this? that you shalt say unto him, By strength of hand Yahweh brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:
32:8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
32:9 For Yahweh's portion is His people; Jacob is the lot of His inheritance.
Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if you will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then you shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: for all the earth is Mine:
32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; He led him about, He instructed (H995) him, He kept him as the apple (pupil) of His eye.
Understand, consider, instruct. We must remember our history and heritage. This is only done with knowledge and understanding. If we don't know and teach our history to our children, we will be forgotten history. The “churches” don't teach this history and heritage, and as a result, our people have forgotten who they are. Instead, they have been taught that it is the Jews history and that we are “Gentiles”. When lies and false doctrine are taught generation after generation, true knowledge and understanding are lost. Look at America today, history is being erased. Our people lack discernment because of decades of Jewish propaganda.
Deuteronomy 32:28 For they (we) are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them (us).
32:29 O that they (we) were wise, that they (we) understood this, that they (we) would consider (H995) their latter end!
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shalt be no priest to Me: seeing you hast forgotten the law of your God (and your heritage), I will also forget your children.
Joshua 3:7 And Yahweh said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know (H3045- understand, discern) that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.
There will be no doubt that Yahweh chose Joshua to lead.
Judges 3:4 And they were to prove Israel by them, to know (H3045) whether they would hearken unto the commandments of Yahweh, which He commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.
Yahweh tests the children of Israel's obedience and allegiance to Him by using the Canaanites, Hivites and other cursed seed tribes as a stumblingblock. As throughout history, we fail miserably by accepting and adopting their pagan lifestyle and race mixing. Those that do not partake are His elect, they have discernment and obedience, and will be rewarded and preserved.
1Samuel 3:8 And Yahweh called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for you didst call me. And Eli perceived (H995) that Yahweh had called the child.
When Samuel was young and sleeping, Yahweh called him. Samuel thought it was Eli calling him. After the third time, Eli understood that Yahweh was calling Samuel.
1Samuel 16:18 Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent (H995) in matters, and a comely person, and Yahweh is with him.
David had understanding and wisdom. Yahweh gave him discernment.
2Samuel 5:12 And David perceived (H3045- discerned) that Yahweh had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for His people Israel's sake.
1Kings 3:9 Give therefore Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern (H995) between good and bad: for who is able to judge this Your so great a people?
Solomon prayed for discernment between good and bad.
Nehemiah 8:2 And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding (H995- discernment), upon the first day of the seventh month.
This would be the Feast of Trumpets.
11 When all Israel is come to appear before Yahweh your God in the place which He shall choose, you shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing.
12 Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and your stranger (sojourning kinsmen) that is within your gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear Yahweh your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
We have to hear, learn, and know with understanding in order to observe and do His commands.
Nehemiah 8:12 And all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to send portions, and to make great mirth, because they had understood the words that were declared (H3045- made known) unto them.
Because they understood the words of the law and Yahweh's Ways.
Nehemiah 13:3 Now it came to pass, when they had heard (H8085- perceived, discerned) the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude (non-Israelites).
When we can discern Yahweh's laws we can follow them. When we do we are distinguished from those that cannot discern. Obedient sheep on the right, disobedient goats on the left.
Job 6:24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand (H995) wherein I have erred.
Without understanding, there is no discernment.
Job 19:25 For I know (H3045) that my redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
Job 24:13 They are of those that rebel against the light; they know (H5234- revere, discern) not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.
Job 35:13 Surely God will not hear (H8085- listen to) vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
Psalm 9:10 And they that know (H3045- understand, discern) Your name will put their trust in You: for You, Yahweh, hast not forsaken them that seek you.
The knowledge of His name is power and preservation. Jesus, Lord, God, Jehovah, these are NOT His name.
Psalm 25:4 Shew (H3045- Make to know) me Your ways, O Yahweh; teach me Your paths.
So that we may discern Your path from all the other paths that are not Yours.
Psalm 28:5 Because they regard (H995- heed, discern) not the works of Yahweh, nor the operation of His hands, He shall destroy them, and not build them up.
Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged (H3045) my sin unto You, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto Yahweh; and You forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
We must have knowledge and understanding of who we are confessing to and why.
Psalm 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, Yahweh will not hear (H8085- listen to) me:
Psalm 81:13 Oh that My people had hearkened (H8085- listened) unto Me, and Israel had walked in My ways!
Psalm 94:11 Yahweh knoweth (H3045) the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
If we are believing in a Jewish Jesus, all our thoughts and deeds towards that Jewish Jesus are vanity, because Jesus is NOT a Jew. The Jews are descendants of Cain and of Esau and the doctrines that we are taught in the “churches” are based on the Jews religion, Judaism, which is NOT Christianity.
Psalm 119:34 Give me understanding (H995- discernment), and I shall keep Your law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
Proverbs 8:33 Hear (H8085- Take heed, discern) instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
Proverbs 10:32 The lips of the righteous know (H3045- discern) what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.
Proverbs 14:15 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well (H995- watches, discerns) to his going.
Proverbs 15:14 The heart of him that hath understanding (H995- discretion) seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
Proverbs 15:29 Yahweh is far from the wicked: but He heareth (H8085- listens to) the prayer of the righteous.
Proverbs 20:11 Even a child is known (H5234- discerned) by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
Proverbs 26:24 He that hateth dissembleth (H5234- pretends) with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;
Isaiah 1:3 The ox knoweth (H3045) his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know (H3045- discern), My people doth not consider.
The ox and the ass know their owner, they are not deceived. We Israelites that do not know our owner because we have been deceived, just as scripture warns us. This is why true knowledge and understanding are important. The people that go to “church” are deceived and they don't even consider that they are being fooled. “Church” doctrine is opposite of scriptural doctrine.
Isaiah 6:9 And He said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand (H995- discernment) not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
They had no discernment.
Isaiah 7:15 Butter and honey shall He (Christ) eat, that He may know (H3045) to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
7:16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that you abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.
This could be talking about the Assyrian and Babylonians, which happened before Christ. It may also be a reference to the end of the kings of Israel and of Judah, which also happened before Christ.
Isaiah 29:24 They also that erred in spirit shall come (H3045- acknowledge) to understanding (H998- discernment), and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
Isaiah 30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear (H8085- obey, listen to, discern) the law of Yahweh:
Isaiah 42:18 Hear (H8085- Listen, discern), ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.
Jeremiah 2:8 The priests said not, Where is Yahweh? and they that handle the law knew (H3045- recognised) Me not: the pastors also transgressed against Me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.
Romans 2:20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.
This describes today's “churches”. They teach the false doctrines of the Jews, they call Yahshua Christ by the title of LORD, which is Baal, and their doctrines of “just believe”, “once saved, always saved”, “the rapture”, “the law was done away with”, “Jesus is a Jew”, and most everything else they teach do not profit our people. They are lies and deception and lead to death. None of it is scriptural.
Jeremiah 3:13 Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you hast transgressed against Yahweh your God, and hast scattered your ways to the strangers (other races) under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed (H8085- listened to) My voice, saith Yahweh.
Jeremiah 4:22 For My people is foolish, they have not known Me; they are sottish (unwise) children, and they have none understanding (H995- discernment): they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.
Without knowledge, there is no understanding, with no understanding, there is no discernment.
Jeremiah 5:1 Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
5:2 And though they say, Yahweh liveth; surely they swear falsely.
Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny Him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
5:3 O Yahweh, are not thine eyes upon the truth? you hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; you hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.
2Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of Yahweh run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him. Herein you hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth you shalt have wars.
5:4 Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know (H3045- discern) not the way of Yahweh, nor the judgment of their God.
The poor in understanding and knowledge no not the Way of Yahweh.
Jeremiah 19:4 Because they have forsaken Me, and have estranged (H5234- profaned) this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;
The Septuagint starts as: “Because they forsook Me, and profaned this place...”
Deuteronomy 28:20 Yahweh shall send upon you cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that you settest thine hand unto for to do, until you be destroyed, and until you perish quickly; because of the wickedness of your doings, whereby you hast forsaken Me.
19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal (Lord), to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into My mind:
19:6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.
Ezekiel 2:5 And they, whether they will hear (H8085- listen, obey, discern), or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
All these verses have to do with hearing and obeying. All are a form of discernment.
Ezekiel 5:13 Thus shall Mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause My fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know (H3045- acknowledge, discern) that I Yahweh have spoken it in My zeal, when I have accomplished My fury in them.
Lamentations 4:11 Yahweh hath accomplished His fury; He hath poured out His fierce anger, and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof.
Yahweh will devour the false foundations of their pagan beliefs and false doctrines of the “churches”.
Ezekiel 7:9 And Mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense you according to your ways and your abominations that are in the midst of you; and ye shall know (H3045- discern) that I am Yahweh that smiteth.
Those that cannot discern false doctrine with His Truth will know, and many will know after it's too late.
Daniel 10:14 Now I am come to make you understand (H995- discern) what shall befall your people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.
Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know (H3045- acknowledge, discern) their God shall be strong, and do exploits (valiantly).
Traditionalists verses Hellenists.
The Septuagint: 32 And the transgressors shall bring about a covenant by deceitful ways: but a people knowing their God shall prevail, and do valiantly.
Hosea 4:12 My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.
Jeremiah 2:27 Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto Me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.
Isaiah 44:20 He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?
Our people today look for answers in all the wrong places. So rather than read the plain words of the Bible, and absorb the more austere moral lessons which it contains, they would rather seek for truth in places where they shall never find it: in the false gods of the Jews and the vain mysticism of the non-White races. If Confucius (and an apt play on that name is “confuse-us”) had ever done the Chinese any good, they would have developed a civil and efficient society apart from acquiring the technology and organization of the White man. If animism had done the African any good, they would not be living in dung-huts and using urine for bug repellant. If the idols of the Hindus and Buddhists and their vile yoga practices had done the Near East any good, they would not be living in total squalor in New Delhi and in Bangladesh. If Mohammed ever had the truth, then his followers would not be the backwards, uncivil and maniacal animals that they are today. When we go whoring after these idols, we become like the people who espouse them. According to Genesis 1:26-28, it can be argued that we should be the zookeepers, and instead we end up in bed with the monkeys.
4:13 They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.
Isaiah 1:29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. (Pagan groves and high places)
4:14 I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand (H995- discern) shall fall.
They won't be punished because by this time there was no way to avoid their fate. They were separated with whores, the fate of whores is death.
Hosea 6:3 Then shall we know (H3045- understand), if we follow on to know (H3045- discern) Yahweh: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
This latter and former rain, or early and latter rain in the Septuagint, is symbolic of the two promised Messianic advents, and since we have seen the first, we should know with certainty that there shall be a second. This is also illustrated at Joel 2:23, which says: “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in Yahweh your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.” Hosea is also relating the latter and former rain to the awakening of the children of Israel mentioned in the previous verse. In the second chapter of Acts, Peter quoted from that same prophecy of Joel in relation to the coming of the New Covenant gospel. If therefore the spread of the gospel is the early or former rain, we must examine what that latter rain is going to be.
Talking with His disciples, we see the following exchange between them and Christ, at Matthew 17:10-13: “10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elijah must first come? 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12 But I say unto you, That Elijah is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 13 Then the disciples understood that He spake unto them of John the Baptist.”
Luke 1:17 says of John the Baptist, who is yet about to be born: “And he shall go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Prince.”
So Elijah shall come, and has come already, speaking of the spirit and power of Elijah – not necessarily of Elijah personally. The disciples understood that the Elijah that had come was represented by John the Baptist. But Christ also said that Elijah shall come, meaning at some future point. Therefore we see that the early rain, and the latter rain, are both precipitated by the spirit and power of Elijah – who is used as an allegory.
In Malachi chapter 4 we see the following: “1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith Yahweh of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith Yahweh of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses My servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”
Malachi chapter 3 talks about the first coming of Christ, and the promises and prophecies made there have been fulfilled in Christianity. However these things described in Malachi chapter 4 were never fulfilled with the early rain, in the first century or unto this day. This is the latter rain, that the hearts of the children are turned to the fathers, and the hearts of the fathers to the children. This describes a racial awakening. It describes a realization of the knowledge that we are indeed the children of the ancient Israelites, and that the covenants of God belong to us - to our race - and that we therefore have an obligation to safeguard them so that they may be passed on to our children, who must be children of that same race according to the Mosaic laws. The early rain is the spread of the Gospel, and the latter rain is our National awakening – the raising up of the people of Israel described in Hosea 6:2.
Some also see the former and latter rain as the Old and New Testaments.
Hosea 6:3 Then shall we know (H3045), if we follow on to know (H3045) Yahweh: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
Isaiah 54:13 And all your children shall be taught of Yahweh; and great shall be the peace of your children.
2Samuel 23:4 And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.
Joel 3:17 So shall ye know (H3045) that I am Yahweh your God dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
Zion is a reference to Judah, the kingly tribe. Holy mountain is the kingdom of Israel, and Jerusalem is the people.
Once the land is cleansed, as Joel says, strangers will never pass through again. And the land is cleansed only in the complete destruction of all of our enemies. All of those non-White aliens who have infiltrated among us and who have come against us.
Amos 3:2 You only have I known (H3045- distinguished) of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
We Israelites are the chosen line of the generations of Adam. Isaac was dedicated to Yahweh on the altar, and his seed is Yahweh's special people. Only Israel was given the law and is punished by the law. Only Israel was given the promises and covenants. It is only Israel that is promised redemption and salvation. Christ came for only the descendants of Jacob.
Matthew 15:24 But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Jonah 4:11 And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern (H3045- distinguish) between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?
There were in Nineveh 120,000 people who knew not the difference between what was good and what was evil.
Assyria is indeed the gourd that sheltered Jonah, and then withered. Likewise, Yahweh caused the Assyrians to deport nearly all of Israel and Judah, settling them in the lands to the north, and for their own good. Not long after Assyria accomplished this, just like the gourd itself, they also withered! It was the Scythian descendants of those same deported Israelites who in league with the Japhethite Medes and the Shemite Chaldaeans of Babylon, themselves a tribe of Aram, had in 612 BC destroyed Nineveh and the other notable cities of the Assyrians.
Why the Assyrians Believed Jonah
The Bible tells us that Jonah, a man, was caught in the belly of a great fish and was delivered, where later he went to Nineveh, where, he preached repentance to the Assyrians and they believed him, and they repented of their sin in sackcloth. This was just a short time before Nineveh was to be destroyed, according to the Book of Jonah itself. What the Bible does not tell us, however, is why the Ninevites should have believed Jonah, or even whether witnesses had seen him ejected from the fish. But why else would the Assyrians believe this man? Maybe here we will see just how much the Bible can come to life once we gain an understanding of ancient history.
The following paragraph is from Diodorus Siculus' Library of History, 2.4.2-4, from the Loeb Classical Library edition, Volume 1 pages 359-361.
"Now there is in Syria a city known as Ascalon, and not far from it a large and deep lake, full of fish. On its shore is a precinct of a famous goddess whom the Syrians call Derceto; and this goddess has the head of a woman but all the rest of her body is that of a fish, the reason being something like this. The story as given by the most learned of the inhabitants of the region is as follows: Aphrodite, being offended with this goddess, inspired in her a violent passion for a certain handsome youth among her votaries; and Derceto gave herself to the Syrian and bore a daughter, but then, filled with shame of her sinful deed, she killed the youth and exposed the child in a rocky desert region, while as for herself, from shame and grief she threw herself into the lake and was changed as to the form of her body into a fish; and it is for this reason that the Syrians to this day abstain from this animal and honour their fish as gods. But about the region where the babe was exposed a great multitude of doves had their nests, and by them the child was nurtured in an astounding and miraculous manner; for some of the doves kept the body of the babe warm on all sides by covering it with their wings, while others, when they observed that the cowherds and the other keepers were absent from the nearby steadings, brought milk therefrom in their beaks and fed the babe by putting it drop by drop between its lips. And when the child was a year old and in need of more solid nourishment, the doves, pecking off bits from the cheeses, supplied it with sufficient nourishment. Now when the keepers returned and saw that the cheeses had been nibbled about the edges, they were astonished at the strange happening; they accordingly kept a look-out, and on discovering the cause found the infant, which was of surpassing beauty. At once, then, bringing it to their steadings they turned it over to the keeper of the royal herds, whose name was Simmas; and Simmas, being childless, gave every care to the rearing of the girl, as his own daughter, and called her Semiramis, a name slightly altered from the word which, in the language of the Syrians, means "doves," birds which since that time all the inhabitants of Syria have continued to honour as goddesses."
Semiramis basically came out of a fish, her mother Derceto, and was then nurtured by doves. Dove in Hebrew is Strong's number 3123, or 3124, the word which is also the name Jonah. So Jonah means dove in Hebrew, and the Assyrians spoke a very close Semitic language. Therefore Jonah was a dove that came out of a fish, and that is why they believed the prophet! So here we see that even in our folly, God speaks to men on their own terms, and sort of makes fun of us in the process. Who thinks that Yahweh our God has no sense of humor?
Micah 3:1 And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know (H3045- discern) judgment?
Jeremiah 5:4 Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of Yahweh, nor the judgment of their God.
5:5 I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of Yahweh, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.
We must have knowledge and understanding to discern our judgment. The “churches” lack this knowledge because they all believe they are already “saved” and wait for a “rapture”. They believe they will escape tribulation and judgment. But scripture clearly teaches that we will be judged and that being “saved” really means being preserved. This only happens when we walk in His laws and Ways. Preservation is an ongoing thing. This life is an ongoing test. Judgment Day is graduation day, or destruction to those lacking knowledge and understanding.
Micah 4:11 Now also many nations are gathered against you, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.
4:12 But they know (H3045- perceive) not the thoughts of Yahweh, neither understand (H995- discern) they His counsel: for He shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
It is apparent that the enemies of Israel will certainly fail, and that they themselves will be gathered “as sheaves to the floor”, which is a description reminiscent of the fate of the tares in the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares in Matthew chapter 13. It is the threshing-floor where the wheat is separated from the tares and the chaff. The tares are bundled and burned, taken away for ever. The wheat remains and the kingdom of righteousness (heaven) will be here on earth.
Matthew 6:26 Behold (G1689- Observe, consider, discern) the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Matthew 9:30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See (G3708- take heed) that no man know it.
He did not want it to be broadcasted. He didn't come to put on a show, as that is scorned in scripture, He came to fulfill the law and the prophecies and to show us the example that is expected of us.
Matthew 16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired Him that He would shew them a sign from heaven.
16:2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern (G1252- make a distinction) the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
Matthew 16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed (G3708- Discern) and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
Discern, and beware of the lies and deceit of the Jews.
Matthew 19:20 The young man saith unto Him, All these things (10 C's) have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
19:21 Jesus said unto him, If you wilt be perfect, go and sell that you hast, and give to the poor, and you shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow Me.
19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
19:23 Then said Jesus unto His disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
19:25 When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
19:26 But Jesus beheld (G1689- looked intently upon) them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Mark 10:27
We must discern between riches and knowledge, between stuff and the kingdom of Yahweh.
Mark 3:11 And unclean spirits, when they saw (G2334- perceived) Him, fell down before Him, and cried, saying, You art the Son of God.
Even the unclean spirits can discern Yahshua.
Mark 8:25 After that He put His hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw (G1689) every man clearly.
Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding (G1689- looking at) him loved him, and said unto him, One thing you lackest: go your way, sell whatsoever you hast, and give to the poor, and you shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.
10:22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
If we are wealthy, but there are good brethren known to us who are needy, if we do not assist them then how do we have a valid claim in our profession of faith? James shows that a profession of faith is nothing without a practice of faith. Does your brother have a necessity? Don't merely wish him well, but act to assist his need and you shall be rewarded for that work, that is a true practice of faith. We must discern between the “just believe”, personal salvation, Jewish doctrine of the “churches” and the true doctrine of scripture.
Mark 14:67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon (G1689- observed) him, and said, And you also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
Mark 16:4 And when they looked, they saw (G2334- perceived) that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Prince, even the devils are subject unto us through Your name.
10:18 And He said unto them, I beheld (G2334- saw) Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
When we have righteous discernment we have the power of Yahweh.
Luke 12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern (G1381) the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern (G1381) this time?
12:57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge (H2919- distinguish) ye not what is right?
Our people can discern if it's goint to rain when they see clouds yet they can't discern false pastors and false doctrine.
Luke 20:17 And He beheld (G1689- looked upon) them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
Psalm 118:22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
Isaiah 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of Yahweh, ye scornful men (Edomites), that rule this people (Israel) which is in Jerusalem.
15 Because ye (Edomites) have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
The Jews have deceived the whole world into believing that they are Israel. They have taught our people confusion, hence, they have no discernment.
Yahshua is not the head of the corner, He is the head cornerstone.
Luke 21:5 And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, He said,
21:6 As for these things which ye behold (G2334- look upon, consider), the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
The Jews' wailing wall is shown to date after the time when the temple was completed. All claims to it's having been a part of any of the Jerusalem temples are Jewish propaganda. If there were parts remaining, then that would make Christ a liar.
The wall they make a 'show' in front of is a section of Herod's temple!
Luke 22:61 And the Prince turned, and looked upon (G1689) Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Prince, how He had said unto him, Before the cock crow, you shalt deny Me thrice.
Luke 23:14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined (G350) Him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse Him:
Herod evidently sent Christ back to Pilate without charges, and Pilate attempted to use that as a reason to free Him. Pilate was able to discern that Christ was innocent.
The “churches” teach that the Romans killed Christ, but it was the Jews. The children of Satan.
Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted His raiment, and cast lots.
In verse 34, Christ is talking about those Israelites (Judaeans, Romans, Greeks) that were deceived by the Edomite Jew priesthood and had no understanding (discernment) of what they were doing.
23:35 And the people stood beholding (G2334- gazing, being spectators of). And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let Him save Himself, if He be Christ, the chosen of God.
Luke 24:39 Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I myself: handle Me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see (G2334- perceive) Me have.
24:44 And He said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning Me.
24:45 Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
What things we perceive in this life are within the provenance of God, and unless God guides a man, the man will remain in blindness. We must consider these things when relating those things which we see as Truth to our brethren who are blinded with the things of the world. Repentance and recognition of God comes before a restoration of vision in every case where Christ healed the blind. We must pray for discernment.
John 1:35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
1:36 And looking upon (G1689- discerned) Jesus as He walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
John 1:42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld (G1689- looked upon) him, He said, You art Simon the son of Jona: you shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
John 3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto you, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen (G3708- by experience); and ye receive not our witness.
The Greek: 11 Truly, truly I say to you, that which we know we speak and that which we have seen we attest to, and you do not receive our testimony!
Even Nicodemus lacked discernment, because he was brainwashed by the doctrine of the Jew Pharisees, Judaism. Paul also was once a deceived Pharisee.
John 4:19 The woman saith unto Him, Sir, I perceive (G2334- see, discern) that you art a prophet.
This woman, being an Israelite, would be familiar with her heritage and the prophecies. The Israelites were expecting Christ.
John 6:2 And a great multitude followed Him, because they saw (G3708- by experience, with their eyes) His miracles which He did on them that were diseased.
John 6:40 And this is the will of Him that sent Me, that every one which seeth (G2334- discerns, ascertains) the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Is this verse stating that if you simply “see” and “believe” on Him that you will be raised at the last day? No. The word means acknowledge and experience. This can only be done by obedience and practice, living and doing, imitating and following. Discerning what is required of with this belief.
John 8:38 I speak that which I have seen (G3708- being acquainted) with My Father: and ye do that which ye have seen (G3708- heard, attended to) with your father.
Christ Himself distinguishes between His Father Yahweh God and the Edomite Pharisee Jews father Satan.
John 8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep My saying, he shall never see (G2334- experience) death.
He wants us to practice and perform His sayings, not just “believe” them.
Obey the Word. If you love Him, keep His commandments. Seek Him and you will not see eternal death.
John 8:57 Then said the Jews unto Him, You art not yet fifty years old, and hast you seen (G3708) Abraham?
8:58 Jesus said unto them (the Jews), Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
The Jews never have nor ever will understand and accept Him. They cannot discern things of the spirit because they are not of the spirit.
John 10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth (G2334) the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
False shepherds and preachers scatter the sheep with false doctrine, even if they are doing it in ignorance, as most all the “churches” do. They also have 501-C3 status which is a tax exemption which allows the government to dictate what they can teach. Like the “churches”, the government is also controlled by the Jews. The pastors are the hireling and the 501-C3 can be viewed as the wolf.
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth (G2334- discerns, perceives) Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
The world and society cannot discern the Spirit of truth, because they don't have the Spirit. Only the children of Adam (the white race) has this Spirit (DNA) and can know Him. That is why this life it a test. The Spirit race in an unrighteous society filled with the race of the Devil, only obedience and allegiance will preserve us.
John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because you hast seen (G3708- become acquainted with by experience) Me, you hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen (G1492- perceived with the eyes), and yet have believed.
Thomas had seen clearly Christ. The other people had not even seen Him, and believed.
Acts 1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward the sky as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; (Matt 28:3, Mark 16:5, Luke 24:4)
1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up (G1689- looking up) into heaven (the sky)? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven (the sky), shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven (the sky).
Acts 4:9 If we this day be examined (G350- called to account) of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Yahshua Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole.
So Peter was having a very powerful sermon, healing the lame man, etc. and the Edomite Jew rulers were getting jealous. Now Peter is addressing two groups, group one, the rulers and those deceived Israelites following the rulers, and group two, the Israelites who kept the true faith.
Acts 4:13 Now when they (the Edomite Jew rulers) saw (G2334) the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they (Edomite rulers) were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them (the apostles), that they had been with Jesus.
Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank You, O Father, Sovereign of the sky and the land, because You hast hid these things from the wise (conceited) and prudent (pious), and hast revealed them unto babes (disciples).
Those who follow Christ will have righteous discernment.
Acts 9:7 And the men which journeyed with him (Paul) stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing (G2334- perceiving) no man.
Daniel 10:7 And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves.
The men with them in both instances did not see or hear with understanding.
Acts 11:2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended (G1252- disputed) with him,
The Judaeans of the House of Judah contended with Peter because they did not understand that the uncircumcised were their long lost kinsmen of the dispersed Nations of the 10 northern tribes.
Acts 11:12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting (G1252- contending, opposing). Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house:
Peter thought that this vision was about food, when it was about people, meaning the 10 “lost” and dispersed tribes of Israel. This group did not return to Jerusalem after captivity. That's why the two houses don't know each other as kinsmen.
The “churches” use this chapter to teach you to eat pork.
11:9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not you common.
Christ's death cleansed both houses, not animals that are still unclean (garbage disposers), He was teaching Peter that they (the uncircumcision) were under the same covenant.
Acts 15:9 And put no difference (G1252- distinction) between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
Romans 10:12 For there is no difference between the Judaean (circumcision, of the House of Judah) and the Greek (uncircumcision, of the House of Israel): for the same Prince over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.
Acts 17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue (assembly hall) of the Judaeans.
17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched (G350- examined, discerned) the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Talking about the Bereans. If only we would imitate their searching and scrutinization.
Isaiah 34:16 Seek ye out of the book of Yahweh, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for My mouth it hath commanded, and His spirit it hath gathered them.
John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me.
2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
17:13 But when the Judaeans of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.
The Edomite Judaean Jew agitators at it again.
17:14 And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still.
Matthew 10:23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
17:15 And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed, they departed.
17:16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw (G2334- ascertained, discerned) the city wholly given to idolatry.
Imagine how stirred Paul would be if he saw what the Judeo-Christian “churches” today teach!
Acts 22:15 For you (Paul) shalt be His witness unto all men (of Israel) of what you hast seen (G3708- become acquainted by experience) and heard.
Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like (G1381- deem worthwhile) to retain God in their knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment), God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient (fitting);
Paul is speaking to the Israelite Judaeans who had the laws, had the knowledge of the experiences of the Exodus, and seen and heard of the power and glory of Yahweh God. They have no excuse for turning from The Way. They chose to disobey.
1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication (race mixing), wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
1:31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection (love less), implacable, unmerciful:
1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 2:17 Behold, you art called a Judaean, and rest in the law, and makest your boast of God,
2:18 And knowest His will, and approvest (G1381- discerns) the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
2:19 And art confident that you yourself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,
2:20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.
2:21 You therefore which teachest another, teachest you not yourself? you that preachest a man should not steal, dost you steal?
Psalm 50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast you to do to declare My statutes, or that you shouldest take My covenant in your mouth?
2:22 You that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost you commit adultery? you that abhorrest idols, dost you commit sacrilege?
2:23 You that makest your boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest you God?
2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Nations through you, as it is written.
Isaiah 52:5 Now therefore, what have I here, saith Yahweh, that My people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith Yahweh; and My name continually every day is blasphemed.
If you are going to talk the talk, then walk the walk.
Teaching that Jesus is a Jew is blasphemy, calling God and Christ 'Lord' is blasphemy. Race mixing is blasphemy. Blasphemy is serious business, you better get educated. You better discern truth from falsehood.
2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if you keep the law: but if you be a breaker of the law, your circumcision is made uncircumcision.
You can't just go through the motion of the law. You can't “just believe”.
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law (sacrificial rituals) there shall no flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of sin.
The rituals of sacrifice alone will not save you. Discernment gives you a chance.
Romans 4:20 He (Abraham) staggered (G1252- doubted) not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith (moral conviction, allegiance), giving glory to God;
4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform.
Romans 10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment).
10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Verses 1-3 describes the churches today. Don't get mad, get educated. The scriptures do not teach the doctrines that the “churches” teach. “Just believe”, (the arrogant self declaration of) “I'm saved”, “personal salvation”, “the rapture”, “once saved, always saved”, “the Bible is for everybody (other races)”, “Jesus is a Jew”, the law was “done away with”. They don't teach the history of our race, or that we are True Israel and not “Gentiles”. Like in the days of Christ, the Jews have corrupted our laws and heritage and deceived us into believing their doctrine and version. Christ warned us about this, but everyone still likes to sit in their own 'pew'. Hence, “My People love to have it so”, and “for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie”. This life is a test, and if we don't use the brain and heart He gave us, and choose a lie, even ignorantly, then shame on us. It's time to learn true understanding and discernment.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove (G1381- discern) what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans 14:1 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations (G1253- criticizing thoughts).
Romans 14:22 Hast you faith? have it to yourself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth (G1381- approves).
The Greek is a little clearer: 22 Do you have faith? Have it concerning yourself in the presence of Yahweh. Blessed is he who does not condemn that in which he himself approves.
Don't be a hypocrite.
14:23 And he that doubteth (G1252- is at variance) is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
Paul is proclaiming that we all do things differently. We should not judge each other's methods in life and worship, as long as it is in accordance with The Way.
In those days, unless you owned or lived on a farm, you got your meat from the market in the city. This meat was considered “common”, thought of as defiled or profaned, by the Judaeans, those that knew and practiced the law. The Romans were “wild olives” who did not have the law, and were pagan to boot. Most of this meat was sacrificed to gods, hence “common”.
1Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (G350).
Paul states that there is a difference within those of the spirit race and those of the earth.
The scriptures do not teach that the other races received the spirit or even can. It was breathed personally by Yahweh into the race of Adam.
2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth (G350- discerns) all things, yet he himself is judged (G350- discerned) of no man.
The Greek ending reads: “and it by no one is examined (judged)”. No man can judge the spiritual man.
Outsiders (other races) cannot, or have no ability to tell us how to interpret our scriptures. Would you let someone outside your family handle your affairs?
1Corinthians 3:13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try (G1381- prove) every man's work of what sort it is.
Yahshua will be able to discern who's work is of what sort.
1Corinthians 4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged (G350) of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge (G350) not mine own self.
4:4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but He that judgeth (G350) me is the Prince.
Paul doesn't care what men say about him, he will preach the gospel anyway.
4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time (prematurely), until the Prince come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
'figure transferred...' What Paul is saying is he has changed the illustration of the message so they may comprehend it. Hence the term 'milk and meat'. He wasn't changing the message.
4:7 For who maketh you to differ (G1252- distinguish) from another? and what hast you that you didst not receive? now if you didst receive it, why dost you glory, as if you hadst not received it.
1Corinthians 6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge (G1252- discern, distinguish) between his brethren?
'your shame' is not in the manuscripts. It should read: 'I speak from respect to you.'
6:6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
Talking about bringing each other to court, and the corrupt courts to settle disputes.
6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
You can get in an even worse situation by relying on the court system. Use discernment and Yahweh's laws and settle your disputes.
1Corinthians 9:1 Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen (G3708- become acquainted by experience) Jesus Christ our Prince? are not ye my work in the Prince?
9:2 If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship (message) are ye in the Prince.
Paul was a messenger of the gospel, chosen by Christ, to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. No one else. Only those whom the gospel is for can discern what the gospel is.
1Corinthians 10:25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles (the market), that eat, asking no question (G350) for conscience sake:
10:26 For the earth is the Prince's, and the fulness thereof.
Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Prince's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
10:27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question (G350) for conscience sake.
Verses 27-31 are more verses taken out of the context of foods sacrificed unto idols that the “churches” use to teach you to eat pork. In verse 27, if you are invited to a feast, don't worry if the meat was bought at the pagan markets, for what is meat, what is an idol? Nothing. Unless you are participating in the pagan temple rituals. These are not teaching us that we can now eat pork, which is still an unclean and forbidden animal. Yahweh does not change His laws. Only the sacrificial rituals and ordinances of the Levitical priesthood were “done away with”, or expired.
Back then, unless you owned a farm, the people got their meat from the temple, where the markets were attached to. At the time, the society was pagan and also run by the Jew Pharisees and Sadducees. When they sacrificed the animals, it wasn't to Yahweh and some of the Israelites had a conscience about eating meat sacrificed to other gods.
1Corinthians 11:28 But let a man examine (G1381- scrutinize) himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
2Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith (allegiance); prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? (unapproved)
11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning (G1252) the Prince's body.
'unworthily' means unfit. You have to know what you are doing and why it is done. Not just going through the motions, but understand the purpose, meaning, and reason to partake in communion. Those approved are those that are of the race of Adam. Those with the Spirit (DNA) given by Yahweh, and act accordingly.
11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
He promises us health if we obey.
Everyone is on pills, or has health issues, do you think this is just by chance? Or maybe there is something to this obeying thing, and also to knowledge and understanding.
11:31 For if we would judge (G1252- examine) ourselves, we should not be judged.
1Corinthians 12:10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning (G1253) of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues (languages); to another the interpretation of tongues (languages):
1Corinthians 14:24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged (G350) of all:
The Greek ends as: “...he is brought convincing proof by all, he is examined by all;”
14:25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.
The quality of our worship will influence any new comer, your behavior should edify.
1Corinthians 14:29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge (G1252- discern).
1Corinthians 16:3 And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve (G1381- deem worthy) by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality (contributions) unto Jerusalem.
The Corinthians were wealthy and Paul had them approve someone to bring the contributions to the poor Israelites in Jerusalem.
2Corinthians 8:8 I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove (G1381- testing) the sincerity of your love.
Paul didn't command them to give.
2Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith (allegiance); prove (G1381) your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates (unapproved, spurious)?
13:6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates (unapproved, rejected).
Paul is referring to Edomite Jews, the other races, and mixed peoples.
Galatians 6:4 But let every man prove (G1381- examine, scrutinize) his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Prince Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of Him:
Greek reads: '...in His knowledge'
It's more than, “just believing” in or of Him.
1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory (honor) of His inheritance in the saints (seed of the called),
The “churches” have no clue who God is. God is a title, so which God? Jesus is not a Jew. They don't even realize that He is our brother of the flesh, meaning the same race. The Jews are of Cain and Esau. The children of Jacob are the white nations of the world. The only people that can be called saints. The “churches” know nothing of our history, heritage and Way. They think they are “Gentiles” and that they can add themselves and anyone to the promises and covenants made to Abraham and his seed.
Ephesians 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
The Greek: 13 until we all would attain to the unity of the faith and of the acknowledgment of the Son of Yahweh, at man perfected, at the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Anointed (group);
Colossians 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Systemized deception. You may not get it yet, but this is speaking of today's “churches”.
Isaiah 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
Pulled away from the milk of the word.
Obviously we are still being deceived. Millions in “church”, learning about every wind of doctrine of men. All the denominations are corrupt. Get back to the original Way.
Ephesians 5:10 Proving (G1381- Distinguishing) what is acceptable unto the Prince.
5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
The “churches” teach tolerance, don't rock the boat or be controversial. Here, scripture demands that we rebuke unrighteousness. Does your “church” allow homosexuals, mixed races and marriages? Teaching of a Jewish Jesus? Eating pork?
Political correctness is public cowardice. If we don't rebuke sin, we are just as guilty.
Romans 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
1Timothy 5:20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
Philippians 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) and in all judgment (G144- discernment, understanding);
1:10 That ye may approve (G1381- examine, discern) things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
The Greek teaches clearly: 10 For you to examine those things that differ, in order that you would be pure and not stumbling unto the day of Christ.
1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory (honor) and praise of God.
When we can discern knowledge and understanding between true and false doctrine, we will be pure and not stumbling, and our fruits will be of righteousness.
Colossians 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge (G1922- discernment) of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
What is His will?...
1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Prince unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of God;
Colossians 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Verse 2 and 3 in the Greek reads:
2 That they may be encouraged in their hearts, being brought together in love, and to all riches of the certainty of understanding in the knowledge of the mystery of the Anointed of Yahweh,
3 in which are all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge concealed.
Paul is telling us to be certain that we understand who we are. We are the Anointed seed of Yahweh, descendants of Abraham. The houses of Israel and Judah were the Anointed seed of Abraham through Isaac, who was the very man dedicated to Yahweh. The Jews are teaching our “churches” to teach you that they are God's people. Paul warns of deceit.
2:4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
Colossians 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) after the image of Him that created him:
Shed your “church” knowledge and renew your Spirit knowledge. These corrections and restorations of scripture are presented to show how opposite the teachings of the “churches” are compared to what scripture says. O brethren of Israel, I pray your eyes are opening.
1Thessalonians 2:4 But as we were allowed (G1381- approved) of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth (G1381- examines) our hearts.
Yahweh discerns between what is in our hearts and and what is in our worldy desires.
1Thessalonians 5:15 See (G3708- Take heed) that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
1Thessalonians 5:21 Prove (G1381- scrutinize, test, examine, discern) all things; hold fast that which is good (right).
We must also understand that most of the preachers in the “churches” today, though well meaning, are deceived by the education in the seminary schools which are controlled by the enemies of our God. Remember Saul before he was Paul? He was an Israelite who was brought up as a Pharisee, they were teaching the 'doctrines of men' (Judaism).
1Timothy 2:4 Who will have (desires) all men to be saved (preserved), and to come unto the (full) knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of the truth.
This is a conditional verse. Yahweh wants us to be preserved in this life by coming to and living in the truth. The truth that we are the descendants of Jacob and have a duty to be the light in this corrupt society.
1Timothy 3:10 And let these (ministers) also first be proved (G1381- scrutinized); then let them use the office of a deacon (minister), being found blameless.
Bishops and deacons are the same thing, they are servants, ministers of truth. The different words used in the KJV for ministers is to give validity to the layers of authority. We are not to rule over each other. Women and children answer to men, and men to Yahweh.
2Timothy 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of the truth;
It's up to Yahweh to open their eyes. All we can do is put ourselves in position to be worthy of understanding by repentance and acknowledgment.
2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil (adversary), who are taken captive by him at his will.
It is the Devil's children (the Jews) and their doctrines that captivate us. They have society running the way they want. As Christ states, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.”
2Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of the truth.
Always learning the wrong stuff, and it happens every Sungod day in “church”.
Titus 1:1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of the truth which is after godliness;
God's 'elect' (chosen ones) are the children of the seed of Abraham through Jacob.
Philemon 1:6 That the communication (partnership) of your faith (allegiance) may become effectual by the acknowledging (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
Hebrews 2:8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under His feet. For in that He put all in subjection under Him, He left nothing that is not put under Him. But now we see (G3708) not yet all things put under Him.
Verse 8 is a prophecy (1 Cor 15:26-27) that is yet to come.
Hebrews 3:9 When your fathers tempted Me, proved (G1381) Me, and saw My works forty years.
Even as first count witnesses, our fathers still disobeyed and just didn't get it.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick (living), and powerful (active), and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner (G2924) of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Jeremiah 23:29 Is not My word like as a fire? saith Yahweh; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
Sounds like a wake up call.
Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern (G1253) both good and evil.
Hebrews 7:4 Now consider (G2334) how great this man (Melchisedec) was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
From Adam to Abraham, the oldest living patriarch was the high priest. The high preacher of righteousness. Nahor, Abraham's older brother was Melchisedec here. When Levi was born, his descendants became the priestly tribe, the priesthood. When Christ died, the priesthood expired and Christ became our high priest, He became Melchizedec. The preacher of righteousness.
Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
Numbers 15:30 But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously (arrogantly, defiantly), whether he be born in the land, or a stranger (sojourning kinsmen), the same reproacheth Yahweh; and that soul shall be cut off from among His people.
2Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world (society) through the knowledge of the Prince and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
Why don't the “churches” see that by these scriptures we are not “once saved, always saved”?
Don't believe the lies of the adversaries that have deceived the “churches”. Believe the scriptures.
10:27 But a certain fearful looking for (expectation) of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries (opposition).
If you are not practicing the law, you are an adversary and breaking the law voluntarily.
James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering (G1252- doubting). For he that wavereth (G1252- doubts) is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
James 2:4 Are ye not then partial (G1252- discriminated) in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
James 2:24 Ye see (G3708- perceive, discern) then how that by works a man is justified (deemed righteous), and not by faith only.
2:25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot (inn keeper) justified (deemed righteous) by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
So we can see by experience and discern by perception, that works of righteousness are needed in addition to belief in righteousness.
1Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith (allegiance), being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried (G1381- proven) with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
If you “just believe” you might not be found praiseworthy. Yahweh wants doers, not just “believers”. A belief is not tried through fire, but actions and works are.
1:8 Whom having not seen (G1492- perceived with the eyes), ye love; in whom, though now ye see (G3708- with the eyes) him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable (indescribable) and full of glory:
1John 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
2Peter 1:2 Grace (favor) and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of God, and of Jesus our Prince,
1:3 According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Knowledge and understanding of our Prince, our heritage, our duty. Not just “believing on Him”, but understanding, supporting and following what He represents.
2Peter 1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of our Prince Jesus Christ.
John 15:2 Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth (cleanse) it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Titus 3:14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
“Just believing” does not bear fruit. With knowledge and understanding we have a source for the growth of good fruit.
1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. (Heb 9:14)
No such thing as “once saved, always saved”. Repentance and preservation is an ongoing thing in this life. Old sins are past sins, how can you be “saved” if the Kingdom has not arrived yet and sin still exists?
2Peter 2:20 For if after they (we) have escaped the pollutions of the world (society) through the knowledge (G1922- precise and correct discernment) of the Prince and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shalt be no priest to Me: seeing you hast forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.
Luke 12:47 And that servant, which knew his master's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
Kinda blows apart this “once saved, always saved” theory.
1John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen (G3708- become acquainted by experience) with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
1:2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen (G3708- become acquainted by experience) it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
1:3 That which we have seen (G3708- become acquainted by experience) and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Yahshua Christ.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the most beloved of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to shew unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John:
2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
1John 3:17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth (G2334- perceive) his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
1John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try (G1381- prove, discern) the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
This goes for those closest to you as well, your preacher, your parents, friends. Anyone can be deceived and repeat that deception ignorantly. Today's “churches” are a perfect example.
3John 1:11 Beloved, follow (imitate) not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen (G3708- known) God.
Psalm 37:27 Depart from evil, and do (practice) good; and dwell for evermore.
If you do evil, you do not show yourself to be of God.
Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up in sanctity in your faith (allegiance), praying in the Holy Spirit.
Colossians 2:7 Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Prince Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference (G1252- are at variance):
22 And indeed have mercy upon those who are hesitating.
1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
23 Now some you save snatching them from the fire, but some have mercy upon in fear, hating even garments having been defiled by the flesh.
Sounds like 'hate the sinner and the sin'.
Revelation 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
With a victory of Catholicism over the Reformation, “those dwelling upon the earth rejoice[d] over” the subjection of the Children of Israel to the earthly power of the Pope.
11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw (G2334- perceived) them.
Ezekiel 37:5 Thus saith Yahweh GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
May 5, 1514 there were no witness to the word of Yahweh. Silenced.
Oct 31, 1517 (3 ½ yrs later) Martin Luther nailed up his 95 thesis. Then Protestantism took off.
11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld (G2334- saw) them.
Isaiah 14:13 For you hast said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
-The papacy of the Catholic church “the man of sin” (Anti-christ) had become established and for a few centuries the corruption was unrecognizable. The identity of the Anti-Christ (“man of sin”) was not preached until the 1100's. But there are many anti-christ among us, anyone who is not with Christ is anti-christ.
Revelation 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Only the children of Israel have ever been invited to this feast.
The children of Israel are the bride, and none other: for Yahweh only prophesied these things concerning Israel.
19:10 And I fell at his (the messenger's) feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See (G3708- take heed) you do it not: I am your fellowservant, and of your brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
So in this study on discernment, it is evident that we must have proper and true knowledge and understanding to correctly and purely follow our Saviour.
He warns us of false preachers and doctrines and wants us to discern between them.
He gave us the tools and ability to scrutinize and examine any information we receive and determine what is truth and what is lie.
Even if we follow lies and deception in ignorance, we are held accountable. It is up to those of us that hear and see His Word to share and make known His Ways to those of us that are lacking, unlearned or ignorant.
Discernment cannot be made without true knowledge and understanding.
