Pharisees

PHARISEES     SCRIBES     SADDUCEES     CHIEF PRIESTS

 

Who are these scribes, chief priests, Pharisees and Sadducees?

 

This study contains all the verses that have to do with said 'religious leaders'.

 

 

Let's take a brief look at the origin and eventual establishment of who these are and how they came to be:

When Satan beguiled Eve in the garden, Cain was the result. He was not Adam's son.

The scriptures are very clear about who begat who, and Cain is never mentioned as Adam's son or in any lineage and genealogy.

Cain went east to walk the earth. The Bible says he built a city and had children. These children grew in number and later on mingled with the children of Canaan, who was Noah's grandson from Ham. Ham's son, Canaan, and his descendants, were cursed because Canaan was the result of incest between Ham and his mother, Noah's wife.

Genesis 9:22  And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

So now we have a mix of  Cain and Canaan's children populating the land.

These people became known as the Canaanites. Many nations of Canaanites came from this.

Time went by and we come to Jacob and Esau.

Esau despised his birthright and married at least 2 Canaanite women.

As Jacob followed Yahweh God's laws, his name was changed to Israel (Gen 32:28) and his children (12 + 1 daughter, Dinah) were known as the Israelites.

Esau's name became Edom (Gen 25:30) and his children were known as the Edomites.

The Edomites mingled with the Canaanites.

So now we have in those days, Canaanites and Edomites against the Israelites.

This is the enmity of Genesis 3:15.

 

Who are the Nethinims?

The Nethinim were those "whom David and the princes appointed (Heb. gave) for the service of the Levites."

Servants of the priests and Levites in the menial services about the tabernacle and temple.

The tradition is that the Gibeonites (Joshua 9:27) were the original caste, afterwards called Nethinim. The Gibeonites were not Israelites (2Sa 21:2), rather of the Canaanite family (Hittites/Hivites), they also are recorded to have fallen angel Amorite blood.

Of the history of the Nethinim in earlier times there are but few and uncertain traces. When Joshua discovered that he had been beguiled by the Gibeonites into a covenant to let them live, he reduced their tribe to servitude, and declared, "Now therefore you are cursed, and there shall never fail to be of you bondsmen, both hewers of wood and drawers of water for the house of my God".  

 

If indeed they are Canaanites/Edomites, it would make sense that they eventually would have risen slowly as “leaven” until it was to late, overtaking the priesthood by Christ's time. Kinda like the frog in water that is brought to a slow boil. Unnoticed until to late.

At the time of the return from the exile (Babylonian captivity) the Nethinim had come to be regarded as important. Their number was considerable: 392 accompanied Zerubbabel at the first Return in 538 BC.

When Ezra, some 80 years later, organized the second Return, he secured a contingent of Nethinim numbering 220.

In Jerusalem they enjoyed the same privileges and immunities as the other religious orders, being included by Artaxerxes' letter to Ezra among those who should be exempt from toll, custom and tribute.

A part of the city in Ophel, opposite the Water-gate, was assigned them as an official residence (Neh 3:26,31), and the situation is certainly appropriate if their duties at all resembled those of the Gibeonites.

 

God repeatedly told the Israelites to remain separate from these children of the Evil One, Satan.

Since the Israelites disobeyed God, He divorced them and for punishment, Assyria took them out of the promised land and relocated them.

See 2 Kings 17:24, 27-28, 31, 34   Ezra 3:3

Kings 17:24 And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.

 

The Assyrian king brought Canaanites into the promised land in place of the Israelites.

This happened around 741BC. This was the beginning of Judaism, and the perversion of the religion and laws of Moses.

The Gibeonites were not with the children of Israel during the Exodus. They were crafty in lying to Joshua, impersonating themselves as distant Israelite relatives from afar. Joshua and the children of Israel were tricked, swore unto them by Yahweh, and had to honor their oath. But this was all part of Yahweh's plan.

 

Samaria was the northern kingdom of Israel. There were lions attacking these people (Jews) that the Assyrians placed there. The Assyrian king sent a Levitical priest (from captivity) to instruct them in the law of God. This Israelite priest that was brought to teach “the people of those countries” was not a righteous priest, obviously. Don't forget that the northern kingdom of Israel was much more pagan at the time than Judah. Also, a true Israelite knows that our faith and heritage is for our people only.

This event (mid 700's BC) was the beginnings of Judaism. The notable group here are the Sepharvaim(ites). These are a branch of Edomite Jews. Descendants of Esau. This is where they started to distort the laws of Moses and claim it for their own. These are who later became known as the Pharisees and Sadducees.

It is not a stretch to see that these Sepharvaim and others, along with the already embedded Nethinims, which were likely Edomites or Canaanites as well, aligned and eventually overtook the priesthood over time.

2Kings 17:31 And the Avites made Nibhaz and Tartak, and the Sepharvites burnt their children in fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech (Molech), the gods of Sepharvaim.

34 Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not Yahweh, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which Yahweh commanded the children of Jacob, whom He named Israel;

The Jews still sacrifice today, they even circumcise children by biting off the flesh and then sucking the blood. That's why they want to rebuild the temple. To continue sacrifice. This is denying that Christ is the Messiah, nothing strange to them. Wake up, the Jews are not Israel.

 

Less than 200 years later (after the Assyrian captivity), because of failure of the Israelites to cast out the Canaanites and their corrupted religion, the Israelites were carried off to Babylon to be punished.

The same thing happened and more Canaanites moved in and took an even deeper root in the promised land.

When the children of Israel returned, Ezra and Nehemiah did the best they could to cast out and clean up the land and religion. For a while it worked, but the root of evil was never fully removed.

Since the Canaanites and Edomites remained there, 3 sects were resulted by the time of Christ.

The Sadducees, Pharisees, and Essenes.

The Essenes were Judahites, true Israelites from the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi.

The Pharisees, which started out with Israelites, became corrupted (like our government), with these Edomite/Canaanites. Pharisee means 'separatist'.

Some believe that the Sadducees never had Israelites as members.

Now Nicodemus was a Pharisee, but he was not a Canaanite. He was an Israelite of the house of Judah. Joseph (of Arimathea), Mary's uncle was also a member of the Sanhedrin, the council of these sects, and was a Judahite.

The Sanhedrin by this time was corrupt and run by Edomites.

 

So here at the time of Christ, we can see that the religious leaders of the original Israelite order, were corrupted by these Edomite/Canaanites.  These enemies of Christianity distorted the Torah (books of Moses), and rewrote God's laws to suit their own desires, into the traditions of men. And Jesus called them out on it. That's why He repeatedly said, “Ye are of your father the devil...” John 8:44.   This is very literal.

 

The Jews admit that they are not the descendants of the Ancient Israelites in their own writings. Under the heading of "A brief History of the Terms for Jew" in the 1980 Jewish Almanac is the following:

"Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew."
(1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).

1943 Jewish Encyclopedia (pg 474)

The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without a break, through all the centuries, from the Pharisees.

Their leading ideas and methods found expression in a literature of enormous extent, of which a very great deal is still in existence. The Talmud is the largest and most important single member of that literature. The Talmud is the Jews bible.

 

The Jewish Encyclopedia identifies themselves as Edom.

– Rabbi Maggal, President, quoted in the National Jewish Information Service, August 21, 1961

"Judaism: The religious system, doctrines, and rites of the Jews. Judaism is, specifically, the religion of a Jewish community living among nation peoples and is to be distinguished from the religion of ancient Israel." – Standard Encyclopedia, Vol. 14, "Judaism."

 

Universal Jewish Encyclopedia  1942  Vol 8  pg 474

Jewish religion today, Judaism, has not changed since the religion of the Pharisees.

 

There are basically 2 branches of Jews:

Ashkenazim or Khazar Jews.

Sepharvaim or Sephardic Jews.

 

The Ashkenzim are those Jews who descended from the nation of the Khazars, an entirely non-Semitic people. No Hebrew blood, no Shemitic (Shem) blood.

Descended from 3 peoples: They are not a pure blood race, they are a mixed race.

Japethites (descendants of Noah's son Japeth)

Mongrels (Orient)

Hittites (Canaanite Turks)

 

95% of the Jewish population are these Ashkenazim.

 

About the year 150 A.D. the Khazars, an Asiatic people related to the Turks, migrated westward from central Asia and established a great empire. This empire covered what is today southwestern Russia, north of the Aral Sea, Caspian Sea, and the Black Sea, including the Don and Dnieper valleys and the Crimea.

About 740 A.D. Bulan the Kagan, or king of the Khazars, was converted to the religion of Judaism, together with some 4,000 of the most powerful nobility of the kingdom.

During the great invasion by the Mongols under Genghis Khan, many of the Judaized Khazars were dispersed into what is now Poland and Lithuania. These Khazars constitute the Slavic Jews of today, those with names such as Minsky, Baranov and Moscowitz, the latter often shortened to Mosk.

Since much of the western part of this area has been at one time or another ruled by Austrian or Germanic people who brought in their own language, these Khazars also took Germanic names such as Gold or Goldberg, Rosenberg, Eisler and so forth.

 

Historical documents written at the time of the Khazar empire, which was at its greatest height, refer to their tradition that their ancestors originally came from the region of Mount Seir which is Edom, the home of the Edomite Jews. Esau's children.

If you wish to look up further details, you will find brief articles on the Khazars in various encyclopedias such as the Britannica, the Jewish encyclopedia has six pages on this subject.

The Khazar kingdom accepted the religion of Judaism under king Bulan in 740 A.D. Upon doing so, they brought in Sephardic Rabbis from Babylon and the race-mixing began between the Cain-Satanic-Jews and the Khazars infusing them with the Satanic bloodline, which they probably already previously had. In 960 A.D. the Khazar Jews made contact with the Sephardic Jews in Spain and more race-mixing between the two branches of Jewry ensued, further spreading the Satanic bloodline. From 720 A.D. until today has given the “Jews” of Ashkenazim and Sephardim 1,270 plus years to completely mix the Cain Satanic blood among them.

For documentation we will consult the Concise Bible Commentary by W. K. Lowther Clarke who has some insight on the Hittite connection with the Jews on pages 24-25:

“HITTITES. – A people which by 1600 [B.C.] formed a powerful State centered in eastern Asia Minor. Representations on the monuments show them to have been of a strongly ‘Armenoid’ type; the Jew of today resembles the ancient Hittites ...

Also we may suppose that pockets of genuine Hittites created by the great expansion of their empire remained where they were when it collapsed and were eventually absorbed into the population of Syria and Palestine. Cp. Ezek. 16:3, ‘your mother was an Hittite’ (of Jerusalem). It is permissible to hold that the sturdy Anatolian stock from Asia Minor contributed to the formation of the tenacious Jewish race.”

 

While these Ashkenazim Jews who were becoming the multitude they are now were expanding in the Far East, the Sephardic Jews in Judaea were running the show.

SEPHARDIC JEWS

EDOMITE JEWS

 

-Descendants of Esau

-Idumea (when the land of Judah was merged with Idumea, it became Judaea)

-Bozrah is a city within the territorial boundaries of the ancient kingdom of Edom.

-Edom in mount Seir

-Esau moved out of Palestine, down southeast of the Dead Sea into Mount Seir and he and his descendants married for 18 centuries with Canaanites and others.

-Edomites were run out of Palestine by the Romans (who are Israelites-Zarah Judah) in 70 AD, the bulk of them moved up into the ancient city of Byzantium, later named Constantinople. There they settled until about 300 AD their consistent rascality had again become so intolerable that they were run out.

They went east and northeast into this Khazar kingdom (from north of Aral, Caspian and Black seas, through Don and Dnieper river valleys into the Balkans)

When Mohammedanism began it’s rise in 622 AD, the Jews, (in 640 AD) convinced the Khazar king, Bulan, to choose their religion over Mohammedan and Christian.

-Those Jews who come down through any of the branches of Cain, or who are of Adam-Noah-Shem—Abraham-Issac-Esau-Moab & Ammon, are of the Serpent's Race and the scripture is clear as to their destiny (See Obadiah).

The Sepharvaim are those Jews who descended from Cain (who slew Abel) and Esau (who tried to kill Jacob).

Genesis 10:30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as you goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.

Sephar- west of Babylon, origin of Babylonian Sepharvaim that migrated to Judaea, at the time the land of Judah, and took their place while the house of Judah was in captivity.

Sepharvaim-The name the dispersed Jews went by after the expulsion from Judaea by the Romans.

-When the 10 Northern tribes of Israel were taken by the Assyrians (745 -701 BC) they partook in pagan rituals just like their neighbors, the Sepharvaim

-The Sepharvaim practiced the bastardized version of Israel’s Torah (law of Moses), when they inhabited the land of Judaea when Israel was in captivity elsewhere.

The Jews that remained, pretended to be Judahites.

The prophets, apostles, and Christ warned us that the whole world would be deceived by this lie, and it has. Just about every “church” teaches that Jesus is a Jew.

Christ is an Israelite of the seed of David, of the tribe of Judah, of Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham. Of the generations of Adam. An Anglo-Saxon brother, a kinsmen of ours. Our Kinsmen Redeemer.

-The Sephardic Jews arrived in Spain in 800 AD with the Moors.

Edomite Jews are Non-Shemitic (Semitic).

Shemitic comes from Noah's son Shem. A Shemite is white. A Jew is a mixed race.

 

Here are the historical facts: The Pharisees are the originators of the religion known as Judaism. As usurpers later empowered by King Herod, who was an Idumean/Edomite put in place by the Roman authorities over the people of Judah, who were NOT HIS RACIAL KIN, the Pharisees began to infiltrate the priesthood of Judah at all levels. (Just like they have today in our own government) The historian, Josephus (who was not a Jew but a Judahite whose family was of the first of the 24 courses), tells us that, with regard to the ruling priesthood, Herod had all of the racial Judahites murdered and replaced with Edomites! Now do you see how the transition from Hebrewism to Judaism really took place? It all started shortly before the time of Christ.

 

JUDAISMS BEGININGS

2 Kings 17:24, 27-28, 31, 34   

24 And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.

27 Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carry thither one of the priests whom you brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God of the land.

28 Then one of the priests whom they had carried away from Samaria came and dwelt in Bethel, and taught them how they should fear the Yahweh.

31 And the Avites made Nibhaz and Tartak, and the Sepharvites burnt their children in fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech, the gods of Sepharvaim.

34 Unto this day they (Sepharvaim Jews) do after the former manners (their own version): they fear not Yahweh, neither do they after their (the children of Israel's) statutes, or after their (the children of Israel's) ordinances, or after the law and commandment which Yahweh commanded the children of Jacob, whom He named Israel;

Wow! So after this priest from the captive children of Israel came and showed these Sephardic Jews our laws and heritage, they go and pervert it to fit their own doctrine (Judaism), and steal our identity.

 

Ezra 3:3  And they (the children of Israel) set the altar upon his bases; for fear was upon them because of the people (Sepharvaim Jews) of those countries: and they offered burnt offerings thereon unto Yahweh, even burnt offerings morning and evening.

The children of Israel were realizing how bad this situation was getting.

Ezra 4:1-2

4 Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto Yahweh God of Israel;

2 Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us (Sephardic Edomite Jews)  build with you: for we seek your God, as you do; and we do sacrifice unto Him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.

Referring to when the Sepharvaim was placed in the land of Judah and started learning our ways. Now 2500 years later, our people have learned their ways and love to have it so.

 

 

SADDUCEES

Strictly Edomites

Deny afterlife, Spirits

Took from the traditions of Zadok the priest, a Levite of Israel

The Sadducees sided with Greeks, materialistic, wealthy, obeyed more Greek philosophy than scripture.

 

The word 'Jew' in the bible should always read 'Judaean', or 'Judahite'.

Israelites lived in Judaea, but so did Canaanites and Edomites.

 

The Septuagint is the OT in Greek from about 300 BC. The apostles and Christ quoted from the Septuagint.

Unfortunately, the Septuagint (scriptures at that time), were overshadowed by the Massoretes (which are the perversion of the scriptures, by the children of the devil the Sepharvaim). And many, and most of the scriptures today are based on these perversions, including the KJV. That is why our Father says to search the scriptures (John 5:39) and study to show yourself approved unto God (2 Tim 2:15).

He gave us a brain to seek the truth, and not to just take some preacher’s word for it. You must understand that a good, well meaning preacher could have been taught in error and is just repeating those errors.

We have the law written on our hearts and If we tune into our Spirit, the truth shall be revealed.

This battle is about Israel versus Edom. The children of Jacob versus the children of Esau.

 

The conspiracy against the Christ.

In the Revelation at 12:4 we see “And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, in order that when she should give birth he may devour her child.“

The dragon here is represented by the historical Herod the Great, for only he attempted to murder the Christ child as soon as He was born, as we find recorded in Matthew. The fact that Herod represents the dragon is quite profound once we discover that he was not an Israelite, but an Edomite Jew by race. That Herod was indeed of the seed of Esau is fully apparent in the pages of the Judaean historian, Flavius Josephus, where it is attested to directly or indirectly at least five times, and those instances shall be cited here:

 

Josephus, Antiquities, 14:8: But there was a certain friend of Hyrcanus, an Idumean, called Antipater (Father of Herod), who was very rich, and in his nature an active and a seditious man; who was at enmity with Aristobulus, and had differences with him on account of his goodwill to Hyrcanus.

 

Josephus, Antiquities, 14:403: but Antigonus, by way of reply to what Herod had caused to be proclaimed, and this before the Romans, and before Silo also, said that they would not do justly if they gave the kingdom to Herod, who was no more than a private man, and an Idumean, i.e. a half Jew, whereas they ought to bestow it on one of the royal family, as their custom was...

 

Josephus, Wars, 1:123: Now, those other people which were at variance with Aristobulus were afraid, upon his unexpectedly obtaining the government; and especially this concerned Antipater, whom Aristobulus hated of old. He was by birth an Idumean, and one of the principal of that nation, on account of his ancestors and riches, and other authority to him belonging...

 

Josephus, Wars, 1:312-313: 312 And here a certain old man, the father of seven children, whose children, together with their mother, desired him to give them permission to go out, upon the assurance and right hand that was offered them, slew them after the following manner: he ordered everyone of them to go out, while he stood himself at the cave's mouth, and slew each son of his as went out. Herod was near enough to see this sight, and his bowels of compassion were moved at it, and he stretched out his right hand to the old man, and besought him to spare his children; 313 yet did not he relent at all upon what he said, but over and above reproached Herod on the lowness of his descent, and slew his wife as well as his children; and when he had thrown their dead bodies down the precipice, he at last threw himself down after them.

 

Now at Antiquities, 14:403 we see that Josephus called Herod a “half Jew”, but by that he did not mean that his mother was an Israelite, since here where Josephus is speaking of Antipater we shall see that Herod's mother was indeed an Idumean, at Antiquities, 14:120-121: 120 and as he came back to Tyre, he went up into Judea also, and attacked Taricheae, and presently took it, and carried about thirty thousand Jews captives; and slew Pitholaus, who succeeded Aristobulus in his seditious practices, and that by the persuasion of Antipater, 121 who proved to have great interest in him, and was at that time in great repute with the Idumeans also: out of which nation he married a wife, who was the daughter of one of their eminent men, and her name was Cypros, {a} by whom he had four sons, Phasael, and Herod, who was afterward made king, and Joseph, and Pheroras; and a daughter, named Salome.

 

When Herod secured power in Judaea, he put all of the principle men of the land to death, who were connected to the Hasamoneans (the Maccabees). Later, he murdered his own wife and several of his own sons. Not long before his own death, after a failed sedition against him, he again had all of the principle men of Judaea gathered into the Hippodrome, and had them all slain. This would have been right around the time of the birth of Christ, and surely would have been a distraction from any of his other misdeeds. Herod died in 1 B.C., only a little over a year or so after Christ was born.

Matthew 2:3  When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

 2:4  And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

 

John the Baptist

 

Matthew 3:7  But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation (race) of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Luke 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation (offspring) of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

John was identifying the children of Cain and Esau. The race of vipers.

The Pharisees did not come to John because they believed him. They really came in order to see what he was doing. John was sent “to cleanse the sons of Levi”, as it is evident at Malachi chapter 3. John's having called certain of the Judaeans a “race of vipers” by itself indicates that they are certainly not Levites.

John knew from the scriptures of Obadiah the fate of the Edomites.

 

 

Testimony of John the Baptist to the committee of the Sanhedrin

 

John 1:19  And this is the record of John, when the Judaeans sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art you?

The Levites were the priesthood for the children of Israel. At the time of Christ, the Edomite Jews had taken control of the religious sects of Judaea.

 1:20  And he confessed (admitted), and denied not; but confessed (admitted), I am not the Christ.

 1:21  And they asked him, What then? Art you Elijah? And he saith, I am not. Art you that prophet? And he answered, No.  (Mal 4:5, Deut 18:15)

 1:22  Then said they unto him, Who art you? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest you of yourself?

 1:23  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Prince, as said the prophet Isaiah.  (Is 40:3)

 1:24  And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.

 1:25  And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest you then, if you be not that (the) Christ, nor Elijah, neither that (a) prophet?

 1:26  John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom you know not;

 1:27  He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

 1:28  These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

John, a Levite, was sent to cleanse the Levitical priesthood and prepare the final sacrifice.

 

 

Interview of Nicodemus with Yahshua

 

John 3:1  There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Judaeans:

 3:2  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, Rabbi, we know that you art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that you doest, except God be with Him.

Nicodemus was an Israelite Judaean and a member of the sect of Pharisees. The religious sects were under the control of the Edomites at this time. Very similar to our government.

 3:3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

The Greek: 3  Yahshua replied and said to him: “Truly, truly I say to you, unless a man should be born from above, he is not able to see the Kingdom of Yahweh.”

Born (G1080) means by definition, to bring forth or be delivered of.

Again (G509) means by definition, from above, or from the beginning.

 3:4  Nicodemus saith unto Him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

Note: Nicodemus said a “second time, or again.”

Jesus said “from above.”

 

Jesus did not use this word 'deuteros'; Jesus used the word 'anothen':

Strong G509  anothen- “from above”, or “from the first”.

 

Nicodemus used the word “deuteros”

Strong G1208  deuteros- “again”, or “a second time”

 

The “churches” are like Nicodemus, and focus on what Nicodemus said.

The scriptures teach the true meaning, which is born from above. Which is what Christ said.

 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born of water (birth sac) and of the Spirit (race, DNA), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

 3:6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

 3:7  Marvel not that I said unto you, Ye must be born again.

The Greek: 7  You should not wonder that I said to you that it is necessary for you to be born from above.

Same thing, born (G1080) and again (G509)   Bring forth from above.

Here's a few more examples:

John 19:11  Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against Me, except it were given you from above (G509): therefore he that delivered Me unto you hath the greater sin.

Why does it say “from above” when the same word is G509 which is incorrectly translated “again”, in John 3:7?  The word “again” would not make sense in John 19:11 would it?

 

James 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above (G509), and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Once more, why did the KJV keep “from above” here? Every good gift and every perfect gift is “again”. Doesn't make sense.

 

James 3:15  This wisdom descendeth not from above (G509), but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

And here, This wisdom descendeth not “again”? No

 

James 3:17  But the wisdom that is from above (G509) is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

But the wisdom that is “again”?

Born again is a deliberate mistranslation that is used to support universalism of Yahweh's promises to the seed of Abraham, to everybody in the world.

 3:8  The wind bloweth where it listeth, and you hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Those born of the Spirit have the law in their hearts. It's in our DNA.

 3:9  Nicodemus answered and said unto Him, How can these things be?

 3:10  Jesus answered and said unto him, Art you a master of Israel (teacher), and knowest not these things?

Nicodemus should know these things, but when evil infiltrates, they subtly distort truth. The Pharisees and religious sects of the time were overrun with Edomites, teaching for doctrine the 'commandments of men', Judaism. The same problem exists in our “churches” today.

 3:11  Verily, verily, I say unto you, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and you 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!

 3:12  If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

 3:13  And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

In verse 13, 'even' does not belong, and 'which is in heaven' is not in the oldest manuscripts.

13  Now no one ascends into the heaven except He who has descended from heaven: the Son of Man.

Proverbs 30:4  Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is His name, and what is His son's name, if you canst tell?

 3:14  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

Numbers 21:9  And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

Christ compared His own crucifixion to Moses lifting up the serpent in the wilderness.

For reason that the serpent race, by crucifying Christ, would be ensuring it's own destruction.

Verse 14 is a prophecy and sign that the serpents would crucify Christ.

The serpent facilitated the fall of our race intentionally, and also unwittingly facilitated our restoration.

Christ redeemed us, and indicted them. Just as the serpent deceived Eve and indicted Adam.

 3:15  That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

The Greek word is 'pas', meaning 'each'. Each of those who He came for. (Matt 10:6, 15:24, Luke 15:4, 6)

 3:16  For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 5:8  But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

1John 4:9  In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His best loved Son into the society, that we might live through Him.

In verse 16, the 'world' is 'kosmos', meaning the society, the decoration of the dwelling place.

 

'only begotten' comes from 'monogenes', meaning only born, meaning fulfilled, resulting in 'best loved'.

We are loved, Christ was 'best loved' because He fulfilled His position of Son, we have yet to do this.

Other examples are found in Hebrews 11:17  By faith (allegiance) Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Abraham had other sons, Isaac was his most beloved. (See also Josephus Ant. 20:2:1)

 

'whosoever' comes from 'pas', meaning 'each', each of a group. In the context of the Bible, whosoever, every, and all, refers to the group of the race of Adam, specifically the children of Israel.

Now John 3:16 properly translated from the original Greek:

16  For Yahweh so loved the Society, that He gave the most-beloved Son, in order that each who believes in Him would not be lost but would have eternal life.

Some say that verse 16 is not in the older manuscripts and was added later. It is evident by the oldest manuscripts that verse 16 is indeed there, and indeed different than the newer translations.

 3:17  For God sent not His Son into the world (society) to condemn the world (society); but that the world (society) through Him might be saved.

 3:18  He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten (most beloved) Son of God.

Most people do not know His name, and most put their trust in what the “churches” teach.

 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world (society), and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

People love what the 'churches” teach.

Friends, the “churches” are just repeating and supporting the perversion that has been pulled over their eyes. The perversion which is the result of the Jews perverting our laws and heritage.

 3:20  For every one that doeth (practices) evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (exposed).

 3:21  But he that doeth (practices) truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought (engaged in) in God.

Yahshua's reasons for leaving Judea

 

John 4:1  When therefore the Prince knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,

(Though Jesus Himself baptized not, but His disciples,)

He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.

And He must needs go through Samaria.

And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God : and there went out a fame of Him through all the region round about.

But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by John for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,

Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.

 

 

The paralytic lowered through the roof to Christ

 

Luke 5:17  And it came to pass on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Prince was present to heal them.

And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and He preached (spoke) the word unto them.

And, behold, they brought to Him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before Him.

And when they could not come nigh unto Him for the press (crowd) of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, uncovered the roof where He was: and when they had broken it up, they let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.

And Jesus seeing their faith (conviction) said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; your sins be forgiven you.  

Mark 2:6  But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,

Matthew 9:3  And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.

Luke 5:21  And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?

After the Prince forgives the paralytic man, the Edomite scribes don't take Him for the Messiah.

And immediately when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they so reasoned within themselves,

He said unto them, Why reason you these things in your hearts?

For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven you; or to say, Arise, and walk?

The Edomite Jew should have seen the truth of the power of God and praised it. Rather, when they saw Yahshua heal the paralytic, their hearts were even more hardened because then their own authority was challenged.

But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith He to the sick of the palsy,) I say unto you, Arise, take up your bed, and go your way unto your house.

And he arose, and departed to his house.

And immediately he arose, took up the bed whereon he lay, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and were filled with fear, and they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

Matthew invites Christ to dinner

 

Matthew 9:11  And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto His disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

Mark 2:16  And when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto His disciples, How is it that He eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

Luke 5:30  But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against His disciples, saying, Why do you eat and drink with publicans and sinners?  

But when Jesus heard that, He said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick:

But go you and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

These Edomite Pharisees did not understand mercy and repentance.

Christ defends His disciples

Mattthew 9:14  Then came to Him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but your disciples fast not?

Mark 2:18  And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto Him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples fast not?

Luke 5:33  And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but your eat and drink?

And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn (fast, hunger), as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

Calling the apostles sons of the bridechamber is a clear reference to those Old Testament prophecies where Yahweh promises to betroth the children of Israel once again, after having put them off in divorce in the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities.

 

 

Sabbath controversy

The Prince and His disciples were hungry and plucked corn while going through a field

 

Matthew 12:2  But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto Him, Behold, your disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.

Mark 2:24  And the Pharisees said unto Him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?

Luke 6:2  And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do you that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?

Deuteronomy 23:25  When you comest into the standing corn of your neighbour, then you mayest pluck the ears with your hand; but you shalt not move a sickle unto your neighbour's standing corn.

And He said unto them, Have you never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?  

How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

1Samuel 21:6  So the priest gave him hallowed bread: for there was no bread there but the shewbread, that was taken from before Yahweh, to put hot bread in the day when it was taken away.

But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.

Speaking of Himself.

But if you had known what this meaneth, I will have (desire) mercy, and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless.

Hosea 6:6  For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

Mercy versus the letter of the law. David and his men were hungry.

If you got pulled over for speeding trying to get your pregnant wife to the hospital, is it not mercy if the cop let's you go? By law he should give you a ticket.

And He said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

Therefore the Son of man is Prince also of the sabbath.

Sabbath controversy

Healing of a man with a withered hand

And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that He entered into the synagogue (assembly hall) and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.

Luke 6:7  And the scribes and Pharisees watched Him, whether He would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against Him.

And the scribes and Pharisees watched Him, whether He would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse Him.

But He knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.

Then said Jesus unto them (Pharisees), I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it? But they held their peace.

And when He had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, He saith unto the man, Stretch forth your hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

There are situations that require mercy over the law.

And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.

And He said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

Exodus 23:4  If you meet your enemy's ox or his ass going astray, you shalt surely bring it back to him again.

5  If you see the ass of him that hateth you lying under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, you shalt surely help with him.  (Deut 22:4)

How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

Matthew 12:14  Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against Him, how they might destroy Him.

Mark 3:6  And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.     

The Pharisees as well as the Herodians were Edomites, Jews, enemies of Christ. Here Christ directly challenged the primary basis for the Pharisees' control over the lives of the people of Judaea: which was a regulatory control very much like the control that bureaucrats have over us in our own nations today. It is obvious that they hated Him for it.

There is no law against doing good or having mercy on a Sabbath day. The Edomite Jews are not the Israelites of the Bible.

 

 

Standard of righteousness

 

Matthew 5:20  For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Christ is stating that these Edomite scribes and Pharisees have NO righteousness.

If you follow their doctrines and practices, your righteousness is the same as theirs, none.

Take heed that you do not your alms (deeds) before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 6:2  Therefore when you doest your alms (deeds), do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Christ takes a stab at the Jews who display this hypocrisy at the 'wailing wall'.

But when you doest alms (deeds), let not your left hand know what your right hand doeth:

That your alms (deeds) may be in secret: and your Father which seeth in secret Himself shall reward you openly.

Alms-giving in the ancient world was with all certainty seen as a way of asking forgiveness from God for one's sins. However the alms-giving had to be without fanfare. If alms-giving was accompanied with fanfare, it was for the benefit of the giver, and not truly for the recipient, and therefore God will not reward it.

Septuagint, Sirach 40:24: Brethren and help are against time of trouble: but alms shall deliver more than them both.

 

Septuagint, Tobit 4:5-11: 5 My son, be mindful of Yahweh our God all your days, and let not your will be set to sin, or to transgress His commandments: do uprightly all your life long, and follow not the ways of unrighteousness. 6 For if you deal truly, your doings shall prosperously succeed to you, and to all them that live justly. 7 Give alms of your substance; and when you givest alms, let not your eye be envious, neither turn your face from any poor, and the face of God shall not be turned away from you. 8 If you hast abundance give alms accordingly: if you have but a little, be not afraid to give according to that little: 9 For you layest up a good treasure for yourself against the day of necessity. 10 Because that alms do deliver from death, and suffereth not to come into darkness. 11 For alms is a good gift unto all that give it in the sight of the most High.

 

Septuagint, Tobit 4:16-17: 16 Give of your bread to the hungry, and of your garments to them that are naked; and according to your abundance give alms: and let not your eye be envious, when you givest alms. 17 Pour out your bread on the burial of the just, but give nothing to the wicked.

 

Proverbs 21:13-14: 13 Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. 14 A gift in secret pacifieth anger: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath.

 

Matthew 6:5  And when you prayest, you shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues (assembly halls) and in the corners of the streets (Jews at the wailing wall), that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Another stab.

But you, when you prayest, enter into your closet, and when you hast shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which seeth in secret shall reward you openly.

Matthew 6:16  Moreover when you fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But you, when you fastest, anoint your head, and wash your face;

Ruth 3:3  Wash yourself therefore, and anoint you, and put your raiment upon you, and get you down to the floor: but make not yourself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking.

That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father which is in secret: and your Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward you openly.

Again, we see that outward displays of piety are scorned.

This is the end of the Sermon on the Mount (only parts of sermon are in this study)

And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine:

Matthew 7:29  For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Because He is the authority. He knows His own Word.

The Edomite scribes taught under their own doctrine, a distortion of the laws of Moses.

Why do you think the Jew Pharisees rejected everything Christ did? Because the Jews are not Israel.

 

 

Message from the Baptist and eulogy of Jesus

 

And when the messengers of John were departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went you out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

Ephesians 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;

A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts.

But what went you out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.

This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send My messenger before your face, which shall prepare your way before you.

Yahshua appeals to Malachi 3:1, and in that manner He again proclaims Himself to be that coming one – the Messiah. Here He also tells people who John is, and what the purpose of his ministry was. To cleanse the Levitical priesthood and prepare Christ for sacrifice.

Verily I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there hath not risen a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

This verse demonstrates that those of us appointed by Yahweh for a special purpose are not any better than any of our brethren who are given no such gifts or office. Therefore no matter our purpose in life, we must always be humble – or indeed we shall be humbled.

No matter how great a prophet John was, once the Kingdom of Yahweh is attained all those who do attain it shall have even greater capabilities than John had while he was on earth.

And all the people that heard Him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.

Luke 7:30  But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.

And the Prince said, Whereunto then shall I liken (compare) the men of this generation (race)? and to what are they like?

They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and you have not danced; we have mourned unto to you, and you have not wept or lamented.

For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and you say, He hath a devil.

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

Here we are warned that “the kingdom of the heavens suffers violence, and the violent ones plunder it”. In Luke at chapter 16 a similar statement, made to a different audience, reads a little differently: “The law and the prophets were until John. From then the Kingdom of Yahweh is proclaimed and all force their way into it.” Look at America, founded under God by us, children of the tribes of Israel. We allowed our enemy to infiltrate our Christian way of life, and as a result, they opened the gates to aliens and they plunder it.

For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

And if you will receive it, this is Elijah, which was for to come.

Malachi 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh:

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of all her children.

Wisdom is justified by her children: the Pharisees sought worldly wisdom, and because of that Wisdom herself was indicted, because God operates by His Word which defies worldly wisdom.

This saying demonstrates the general apathy of the people under any and all circumstances. And today we see that whether we pronounce the doom and gloom of inevitable judgment, or a coming prosperity at the return of Christ, it does not matter, the people do not want to hear the truth: they prefer the world and the status quo.

Anointing of Christ's feet in house of Simon a Pharisee

Luke 7:36  And one of the Pharisees desired Him that He would eat with him. And He went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.

 7:37  And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

 7:38  And stood at His feet behind Him weeping, and began to wash His feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed His feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

 7:39  Now when the Pharisee which had bidden (invited) Him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if He were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.

 7:40  And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto you. And he saith, Master, say on.

 7:41  There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.

 7:42  And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell Me therefore, which of them will love him most?

 7:43  Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And He said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

 7:44  And He turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest you this woman? I entered into your house, you gavest Me no water for My feet: but she hath washed My feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.

 7:45  Thou gavest Me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss My feet.

 7:46  My head with oil you didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed My feet with ointment.

Psalm 23:5  Thou preparest a table before Me in the presence of Mine enemies: you anointest My head with oil; My cup runneth over.

 7:47  Wherefore I say unto you, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

1Timothy 1:14  And the grace (favor) of our Prince was exceeding abundant with faith (allegiance) and love which is in Christ Jesus.

 7:48  And He said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

 7:49  And they that sat at meat with Him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?

 7:50  And He said to the woman, Thy faith (conviction) hath saved (preserved) you; go in peace.

 

 

Blasphemous accusation of league with Beelzebub

 

Then was brought unto Him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and He healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?  (Isa 9:6-7, 11:1-4)

Matthew 12:24  But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

Mark 3:22  And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth He out devils.

And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself cannot not stand:

And He called them unto Him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?

And if Satan rise up against himself, And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

But if by the Spirit of Yahweh I cast out demons, then the Kingdom of Yahweh has overtaken you!

Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

In this context, the  strong man here represents the Jews and is a continuation of the previous verse.

THE BINDING OF THE STRONG MAN

Satan is the “strong man”. The best passage on this subject is found at Luke 11:21-23: “21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: 22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 He that is not with Me is against Me: and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth.”

While there were still a few pure-blooded Judahites and Benjaminites, and a smattering from the other tribes in Judaea at the time of Yahshua Christ, by-and-large the Edomite-Canaanite element had taken over the government and Temple offices, and had Rome inclining to their whims. On the other hand, Yahshua Christ is the “stronger than he” to “overcome him” (Satan). And because the Romans were Israelites of the house of Zarah-Judah, the twin brother of Christ’s own household of Pharez-Judah, the Romans became, in essence, Christ’s feet to tread on Satan as Paul had predicted at Romans 16:20. The Romans even allowed a short period for the Christians to leave Judaea before the treading took place, leaving only the satanic Canaanite-Jews to receive the iron feet of Rome. So Rome represented Christ as the “stronger than he” to bind the strong man (Satan), which Josephus describes in such great detail! Rome was not out-of-place by playing this part, as a near relative is needed as a revenger of blood (Numbers 35:16-19). How many are there that know the founding families, including the Julian clan of the Caesars of Rome, descended from the Trojans, who in turn descend from Zarah-Judah?

This also applies to the 2nd Advent of Christ, when He will overcome and rid the evil once and for all.

He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad.

Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world (age), neither in the world (age) to come.

Blasphemy is promotion of race mixing. The Spirit is the DNA of Yahweh. Adamites have this Spirit. This pure Spirit must be holy, sacred, and set apart from those not having the Spirit. The family tree of Adam must remain pure.

Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

Produce good fruit by making it with one's own race. Kind after kind.

Matthew 12:34  O generation (offspring) of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Christ is calling His enemies “offspring of vipers”. The word is 'gennema' and according to Liddel & Scott it primarily means that which is produced or born, a child. This is only true of they who were of the seed of the serpent, and not of the seed of the woman, of Genesis 3:15.

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

For by your words you shalt be justified, and by your words you shalt be condemned.

Scribes and Pharisees demand a sign

 

Matthew 12:38  Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from you.

 12:39  But He answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation (race) seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah:

 12:40  For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.  (Jonah 1:17)

 12:41  The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation (race), and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonah is here.

The men of Nineveh, who were Adamites, Assyrians from of the sons of Asshur (Gen 10:11) will condemn the race spoken of in verse 39, the Edomite Pharisees.

 12:42  The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation (race), and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

This reference is certainly to the Queen of Sheba, who visited Solomon in Jerusalem as related in 1 Kings chapter 10 and 2 Chronicles chapter 9.

The Queen of Sheba was also a white Adamic woman.

 12:43  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

 12:44  Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

 12:45  Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation (race).    

Job 1:7  And Yahweh said unto Satan, Whence comest you? Then Satan answered Yahweh, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

1Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

When bad fruit tries to do good, the end result is always worse. Bad trees cannot produce good fruit.

There is a lot of controversy concerning interpretations of this parable. On one hand it could represent those who received the Word and turned away, his situation would be worse. Regarding the enemy, those who deny Christ, even if there are times when they seem to do good, setting their house in order, yet they shall in the end do eight times more wickedly than at the first. If a bad tree cannot produce good fruit, then there is no such thing as a good Edomite – a good Jew is an oxymoron since there cannot be a good anti-Christ.

 

 

After Yahshua heals two blind men and a dumb demoniac

 

Mat 9:34  But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.

After witnessing something only God can do, the Edomite Pharisees accuse Him of blasphemy.

 

Pharisees reproach Yahshua regarding disciples washing hands

 

And when the  scribes and Pharisees saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.

Matthew 15:1  Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,

Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

Mark 7:1  Then came together unto Him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.

 7:3  For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

 7:5  Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, Why walk not your disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?

For the Pharisees, and all the Jews (Judaeans), except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.

But He answered and said unto them, Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

For God commanded, saying, Honour your father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.  (Ex 20:12, Lev 19:3)

But you say 'Whoever should say to father or mother: 'Whatever you may benefit from me is a gift',

Shall by no means honor his father', and you have made void the Word of Yahweh by your tradition, which you have delivered: and many such like things do you.

Their (the Jews) tradition was saying that if the children payed the treasury, they would not have to honor their parents. Does this sound like Christianity? No, it's the religion of the children of darkness.

Their (the Jews) tradition can be found today in Judaism, and in their bible the 'Talmud'.

He answered and said unto them,

Matthew 15:7  Mark 7:6  Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, as it is written, this people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.  (Is 29:13, Col 2:18-22)

Titus 1:14  Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Also called the 'traditions of men'.

For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things you do.

And He said unto them, Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition.

And He called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.

This verse is not about pork. Yahweh did not change His mind about unclean animals for food.

The context is about washing hands, as is stated in verse 20 in Matthew.

The food laws are for the benefit of man, and not man for the benefit of the law. It is not a sin to eat a speck of dust or a mite or a little dirt on our hands. Rather, it is the things which we do that can more readily harm us. The context is not about eating pork, which is not even considered food. The context as verse 2 in Mark states, is eating with unwashed hands.

Matthew 15:12  Then came His disciples, and said unto Him, Knowest you that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

 15:13  But He answered and said, Every plant, which My heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

 15:14  Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Isaiah 9:16  For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

And when He was entered into the house from the people, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable.

And Jesus said, Are you also yet without understanding?

Do not you yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught, purging all meats?

But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, pride, foolishness, blasphemies:  (Gen 6:5, Prov 6:14, Jer 17:9)

These are  evil things come from within which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for He would not walk in Jewry (Judaea), because the Jews sought to kill Him.

Brief visit in Dalmanutha in Galilee

Matthew 16:1  The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired Him that He would shew them a sign from heaven.

Mark 8:11  And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with Him, seeking of Him a sign from heaven, tempting Him.

He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

Matthew 16:3  And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but can you not discern the signs of the times?

And He sighed deeply in His spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation (race) seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation (race), but the sign of the prophet Jonah. And He left them, and departed.  

Christ had nothing to prove to his enemies. Christ did not try to convert the serpent seed Pharisees and Sadducees. But He did give them a chance to repent, after all they did have Abraham for a father, through Esau. But Esau race mixed and none of them are purebloods.

 

 

Sharp rebuke of dullness of disciples

 

Now when His disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.

Matthew 16:6  Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Mark 8:15  And He charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.

Which when Jesus perceived, He said unto them, O you of little faith (lacking confidence), why reason you among yourselves, because you have brought no bread? Perceive you not yet, neither understand? Have you your heart yet hardened? Having eyes, see you not? and having ears, hear you not? Neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up?

When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took you up? They say unto Him, Twelve.

And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took you up? And they said, Seven.

The leaven of the Pharisees, or course, represents the alien ideas which are sown in among whatever truths that they also upheld. It is evil unnoticed until it's there.

Matthew 16:11  How is it that you do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

 16:12  Then understood they how that He bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Which is the 'traditions of men', Judaism, Communism, Socialism, Catholicism. Judeo-Christianity.

 

 

Christ foretells that He will be rejected, killed, and raise on the third day

 

Matthew 16:21  From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto His disciples, how that He must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

Mark 8:31  And He began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

Luke 9:22  Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

 

 

The puzzle of the resurrection and about Elijah

 

Matthew 17:10  And His disciples asked Him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elijah must first come?

Mark 9:11  And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elijah must first come?

Malachi 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh:

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah shall truly cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that He must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

Psalm 22:6  But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

Isaiah 53:2  For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.

But I say unto you, That Elijah is indeed come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

Then the disciples understood that He spake unto them of John the Baptist.  

Elijah here is used as an allegory. Christ is talking of John the Baptist, who came in the spirit of Elijah. But John the Baptist was not Elijah himself.

 

Demoniac boy, whom disciples could not heal

 

Mark 9:14  And when He came to His disciples, He saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.

 9:16  And He asked the scribes, What question you with them?

And there came to Him a certain man, kneeling down to Him, and saying, Master, I have brought unto you my only son, which hath a dumb spirit;

And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I brought him to your disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.

Prince, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the waters, to destroy him: but if you canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

This seems to be a description befitting our entire race today, dumb and wallowing in the mud while awaiting their redemption!

And He asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.

Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation (race), how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to Me.

Even Christ's own kin were unbelieving.

The phrase in verse 17, “faithless and perverted race” is a remark about Israel. The children of Israel were faithless and perverted because of the alien element among them, which having usurped authority in the kingdom had led them away from true instruction, from true education in the Word, into a  host of errors and misconceptions.

That Yahshua called these Judaeans a faithless and perverted race does not necessarily mean that every individual within the race is perverted.

Jesus said unto him, If you canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Prince, I believe; help you mine unbelief.

And as they brought him unto Him: and when he saw Him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.

And Jesus rebuked the devil, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge you, come out of him, and enter no more into him; And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.

But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose, and was delivered unto the father.

And when He was come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

And He said unto them, Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.    

Likewise, only God can heal our national idiocy today. This represents the state of our people before their own awakening. Most of them worshiping Jews and the trends of society are blathering idiots indeed!

 

 

The coming of Christ to the Feast of Tabernacles creates intense excitement

 

Then the Judaeans sought Him at the feast, and said, Where is He?

And there was much murmuring among the people concerning Him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but He deceiveth the people.

Howbeit no man spake openly of Him for fear of the Jews (Edomite Judaeans).

When people are afraid to speak in public, you know Satan is in control.

Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

And the Judahites marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not Mine, but His that sent Me.

If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine (teacher), whether it be of God, or whether I speak of Myself.

He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh His glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness (injustice) is in him.

Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go you about to kill Me.

Exodus 24:3  And Moses came and told the people all the words of Yahweh, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which Yahweh hath said will we do.

The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil (demon): who goeth about to kill you?

Who's trying to kill you? Referring back to healing the lame at the pool on the Sabbath. The Edomite Pharisees were trying to kill Christ. He was upsetting their religious authority.

Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and you all marvel.

Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and you on the sabbath day circumcise a man.  (Lev 12:3, Gen 17:10)

If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are you angry at Me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

Deuteronomy 1:16  And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger (sojourning kinsman) that is with him.

Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this He, whom they seek to kill?

But, lo, He speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto Him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?

Some people in the crowds were aware of the Pharisees intentions.

Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence He is.

This was a Pharisaic (Jewish) doctrine that was taught. That no man will know Him when He comes and from where.

Verse 42 of John reads, 'Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?'  David was of the seed of Judah, who was of Jacob, Isaac, Abraham, Noah, down to Adam.

The Pharisees taught the opposite of the scriptures, just like today's “churches”.

1Kings 8:19  Nevertheless you (David) shalt not build the house; but your son (Solomon) that shall come forth out of your loins, he shall build the house unto My name.

Solomon built the physical Temple of Yahweh. Christ was the bodily temple of Yahweh.

Luke 2:4  And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

11  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Prince.

Practicing Israelites knew where Christ would come from, and were expecting Him, and knew Him.

Then cried Jesus in the temple as He taught, saying, Ye both know Me, and you know whence I am: and I am not come of Myself, but He that sent Me is true (truthful), whom you know not.

The Edomites did not know Him because they were not His people, they were not His race. Christ was of the children of Light. The Edomites of the children of Darkness.

But I know Him: for I am from Him, and He hath sent Me.

Then they sought to take Him: but no man laid hands on Him, because His hour was not yet come.

And many of the people believed on Him, and said, When Christ cometh, will He do more miracles than these which this man hath done?

The True Israelites among the Judaeans accepted that He was Him.

 

John 7:32  The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning Him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take Him.

These were not Romans, they were the priests officers.

 7:33  Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto Him that sent Me.

 7:34  Ye shall seek Me, and shall not find Me: and where I am, thither you cannot come.

He is still talking with the Pharisees.

 7:35  Then said the Judaeans among themselves, Whither will He go, that we shall not find Him? will He go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles (Greeks), and teach the Gentiles (Greeks)?

The 'dispersed' is correctly translated here, as it refers to the dispersed Nations of the tribes of Israel. Those that did not come back to Judaea after captivity and forgot their heritage.

“Gentiles”, which should not be in the Bible, is a Latin word that only means a nation, race, or people. Most of the time it refers to the dispersed Nations of Israel, sometimes it refers to the other nations of peoples.

Here in verse 35 in John, the KJV translators took the Greek word 'Hellen', which means a Greek speaking person, and put 'Gentile'. This is a deliberate error used to support universalism.

The original Greek: 35  Therefore the Judaeans said to themselves “Where is He about to go that we shall not find Him? Is He about to go to the dispersion of the Greeks and teach the Greeks?

 7:36  What manner of saying is this that He said, Ye shall seek Me, and shall not find Me: and where I am, thither you cannot come?

 7:37  In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink.  (Isa 55:1)

 7:38  He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Deuteronomy 18:15  Yahweh your God will raise up unto you a Prophet from the midst of you, of your brethren, like unto me; unto Him you shall hearken;

Proverbs 18:4  The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

Isaiah 43:19-20

19  Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

20  The beast of the field shall honour Me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen.

 7:39  (But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Spirit was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Isaiah 44:3  For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour My spirit upon your seed, and My blessing upon your offspring:  (Joel 2:28)

 7:40  Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.

 7:41  Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?

 7:42  Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

Psalm 132:11  Yahweh hath sworn in truth unto David; He will not turn from it; Of the fruit of your body will I set upon your throne.

Jeremiah 23:5  Behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

 7:43  So there was a division among the people because of Him.

Yes, Israelites that agreed, and Israelites that didn't yet. Edomites who didn't and those Israelites that followed the Edomites.

 7:44  And some of them would have taken Him; but no man laid hands on Him.

 7:45  Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have you not brought Him? The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.

These were not Roman soldiers.

 7:46  The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.

 7:47  Then answered them the Pharisees, Are you also deceived?

 7:48  Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on Him?

No, because they are of the devil.

Acts 6:7  And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

These would be the Israelite priests such as Nicodemus and others that saw through the deception of the Edomite Pharisees.

1Corinthians 1:20, 26

20  Where is the cunning? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this age? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this society?

26  For you see your calling, brethren, since not many are wise in accordance with the flesh, not many powerful, not many are noble.

(The Pharisees saying) But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

This crowd not knowing the law are accursed because they didn't know the law like the Pharisees did. Typical authoritarian arrogance. Looking down on the people.

 7:50  Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)

 7:51  Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?  (Deut 1:17)

 7:52  They answered and said unto him, Art you also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

Story of adulterous woman brought to Yahshua for judgment

 

John  7:53  And every man went unto his own house.

 8:1  Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

 8:2  And early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came unto Him; and He sat down, and taught them.

 8:3  And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

 8:4  They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

 8:5  Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest you?

 8:6  This they said, tempting Him, that they might have to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down, and with His finger wrote on the ground, as though He heard them not.

 8:7  So when they continued asking Him, He lifted up Himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

 8:8  And again He stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

 8:9  And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

 8:10  When Jesus had lifted up Himself, and saw none but the woman, He said unto her, Woman, where are those your accusers? hath no man condemned you?

 8:11  She said, No man, Prince. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn you: go, and sin no more.   

Verses 7:53 – 8:11 are not in the oldest manuscripts. It is found in only one, the Codex Bezae.

The only positive thing is that it does not contradict scripture.

 

 

Yahshua angers the Pharisees by claiming to be the Light of the Society

 

Christ is talking to the Edomite Pharisees for the benefit of True Israel. Those Israelites in the crowd that hear His voice with understanding.

John 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world (society): he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

 8:13  The Pharisees therefore said unto Him, Thou bearest record of yourself; your record is not true.

 8:14  Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of Myself, yet My record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but you cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

 8:15  Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

 8:16  And yet if I judge, My judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent Me.

 8:17  It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

Deuteronomy 17:6  At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Deuteronomy 19:15  One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

 8:18  I am one that bear witness of Myself, and the Father that sent Me beareth witness of Me.

 8:19  Then said they (Edomite Pharisees) unto Him, Where is your Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know Me, nor My Father: if you had known Me, you should have known My Father also.

If you are not of Him, you will not know Him.

Christ is stating that these Edomite Jews, who are not from of God, do not know Christ or the Father.

 8:20  These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as He taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on Him; for His hour was not yet come.    

Pharisees attempt to stone Yahshua when He exposes their sinfulness

 

John 8:21  Then said Jesus again unto them, I go My way, and you shall seek Me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, you cannot come.

He is still talking directly to the Pharisees.

 8:22  Then said the Jews (the Edomite Judaeans), Will He kill Himself? because He saith, Whither I go, you cannot come.

 8:23  And He said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above (G507): you are of this world (society); I am not of this world (society).

 8:24  I said therefore unto you, that you shall die in your sins: for if you believe not that I am He, you shall die in your sins.

Origin is being stated here in verse 23 of John. (Gen 3:15)

In verse 23, 'above' is the same word from chapter 3, describing 'you must be born from above'. Born again is not what happens. You must be born of water (child birth) and born of the Spirit (DNA) ('from above').

The Edomites and Canaanites are from of this world. They came from beneath. They are the children of the serpent. Only Yahweh's children, the race of Adam, came from above. We have the Spirit.

 8:25  Then said they unto Him, Who art you? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

The beginning of the conversation at verse 12 of John.

 8:26  I have many things to say and to judge of you: but He that sent Me is true; and I speak to the world (society) those things which I have heard of him.

 8:27  They understood not that He spake to them of the Father.

Because the Jews do not know Him. Because their father is the Devil.

 8:28  Then said Jesus unto them, When you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall you know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father hath taught Me, I speak these things.

The Edomite Pharisee Jews were the ones that were going to crucify Him. Not the Romans, as the “churches” teach. Christ is in dialogue with the Devil's children. He is calling them out.

 8:29  And He that sent Me is with Me: the Father hath not left Me alone; for I do always those things that please Him.

 8:30  As He spake these words, many believed on Him.

The True Israelites in the crowd believed because of the prophets and the prophecies, they knew their heritage and were expecting Him, these Judaeans were starting to realize that their Prince has come.

 8:31  Then said Jesus to those Judaeans which believed on Him, If you continue in My word, then are you My disciples indeed;

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

Romans 6:14,18,22

14  For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under law, but under favor.

18  Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.

22  But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

James 1:25  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.

The law still exists and we are to follow it, but if we 'practice' righteousness, then we are not under the law, we are blessed and highly favored.

 8:33  The Pharisees answered Him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest You, Ye shall be made free?

Here, the Edomite Jews unwittingly gave themselves up. Because they are not Israelites.

The children of Israel were in bondage in Egypt, in bondage to the Assyrians, and to the Babylonians.  

 8:34  Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

Commit also means to practice, as in continually.

Romans 6:16  Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

 8:35  And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

 8:36  If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.

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

Galatians 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

 8:37  I know that you are Abraham's seed; but you seek to kill Me, because My word hath no place in you.

Christ knows that the Edomites are Abraham's seed through Esau. But Esau was a race traitor and sold his birthright. He took Canaanite wives and his, as well as Cain's, seed was a mixed seed. A mixed seed is a broken cistern that cannot hold water. They had no part in the covenants and promises made to Jacob's seed. Neither does anyone else.

 8:38  I speak that which I have seen with My Father: and you do that which you have seen with your father.

 8:39  They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham.

Even though they are a mixed breed they still cling to Abraham as if it gives them any validity.

A mule can't claim that it is a pure bred, or GMO corn, natural.

Romans 2:28  For he is not a Judaean (Israelite), which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

29  But he is a Judaean (Israelite), which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

 8:40  But now you seek to kill Me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

 8:41  Ye do the deeds of your father (the Devil). Then said they to Him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

The Jews, and the “churches” claim we are all God's children. Scripture tells a different story.

The Edomites are most certainly born of race mixing.

 8:42  Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, you would love Me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of Myself, but He sent Me.

1John 5:1  Each believing that Yahshua is the Christ has been born from of Yahweh, and each loving He who engendered loves he having been engendered by Him.

 8:43  Why do you not understand My speech? even because you cannot (are not able to) hear My word.

 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own (devices): for he is a liar, and the father of it.

 8:45  And because I tell you the truth, you believe Me not.

 8:46  Which of you convinceth (censures) Me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not believe Me?

 8:47  He that is from of God heareth God's words: you therefore hear them not, because you are not from of God.

1John 4:6  We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

This was not a name calling event. Christ set the record straight. The religious ruling sects of the Edomites were identified as the children of the Devil. When you realize that we, the anglo-saxon race of Adam, are the descendants of the ancient Israelites, and that the Jews are of Cain and Esau's descendants, the scriptures fit perfectly and understanding is broadened.

 8:48  Then answered the Jews, and said unto Him, Say we not well that you art a Samaritan, and hast a devil (evil spirit, demon)?

 8:49  Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour My Father, and you do dishonour Me.

 8:50  And I seek not Mine own glory (credit): there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

 8:51  Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep My saying, he shall never see death.

Obey the Word. If you love Him, keep His commandments. Seek Him. And live.

 8:52  Then said the Jews unto Him, Now we know that you hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

These Edomites just don't get it.

Hebrews 11:13  These all died in faith (allegiance), not having received the promises, but having seen them from afar, and welcoming and professing that they are strangers and sojourners on the earth.

They (Israelites) that have died, believed and trusted in the promises, and await them.

 8:53  Art you greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest you yourself?

 8:54  Jesus answered, If I honour Myself, My honour is nothing: it is My Father that honoureth Me; of whom you say, that He is your God:

 8:55  Yet you have not known Him; but I know Him: and if I should say, I know Him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know Him, and keep His saying.

 8:56  Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it, and was glad.

 8:57  Then said the Jews unto Him, You art not yet fifty years old, and hast You seen Abraham?

 8:58  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

 8:59  Then took they up stones to cast at Him: but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

So in chapter 8, Christ identifies the children of the Devil. The Edomite Jew Pharisees.

In chapter 9, Christ opens the eyes of a man blind from birth. This would represent those born into an apostate religion and society, and the Truth is revealed.

In chapter 10, Christ will state who His sheep are.

 

 

Yahshua heals born blind man who outwits Pharisees

 

Chapter 9 of John is symbolic of the blindness of the children of Israel to the gospel. Their heritage, the covenants and promises made to our father Abraham.

John 9:1  And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind from his birth.

 9:2  And His disciples asked Him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

 9:3  Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in (by) him.

We are for His purpose.

2Corinthians 4:17  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (honor);

Yahweh works through some of us to show the rest of us His purpose.

 9:4  I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

 9:5  As long as I am in the world (society), I am the light of the world (society).

 9:6  When He had thus spoken, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

 9:7  And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.  (Neh 3:15)

 9:8  The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

 9:9  Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

 9:10  Therefore said they unto him, How were your eyes opened?

 9:11  He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

 9:12  Then said they unto him, Where is He? He said, I know not.

 9:13  They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.

 9:14  And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.

 9:15  Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.

 9:16  Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.

Don't forget, these Edomite Pharisees had their own version of Moses' Law. They forbade doing good on the Sabbath. This is not a scriptural teaching.

 9:17  They say unto the blind man again, What sayest you of Him, that He hath opened your eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

 9:18  But the Jews (the Edomite Pharisees of Judaea) did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.

 9:19  And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind? how then doth he now see?

 9:20  His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:

 9:21  But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.

 9:22  These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess (profess) that He was (the) Christ, he (those professing) should be put out of the synagogue (assembly hall).

So evidently, the Edomite priesthood had agreed that anyone who supported that the Prince was the Christ, they would be excommunicated. The Jews will not accept Him. Not then, not now, not ever.

 9:23  Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

 9:24  Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man (Christ) is a sinner.

They just couldn't believe, because they have not the truth (DNA) in them. They wanted him to deny Christ.

 9:25  He answered and said, Whether He (Christ) be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

 9:26  Then said they to him again, What did He to you? how opened He your eyes?

They keep beating a dead horse. Total blindness, the children of darkness abide in darkness.

 9:27  He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear: wherefore would you hear it again? will you also be His disciples?

This really pissed the Jews off!

 9:28  Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art His disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.

The Edomites adopted the Laws of Moses, they distorted it and twisted it into their own interpretation, and used it as a 'form of piety', to rule over the people. Their doctrine is called the 'traditions of the elders', Judaism, Communism, Talmudism. It is their doctrine that is being taught to our people in the “churches” today. They are usurpers, impostors, vampires, leeches, a parasitic organism.

 9:29  We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence He is.

 9:30  The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that you know not from whence He is, and yet He hath opened mine eyes.

The Jews just can't accept Christ.

 9:31  Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth His will, him He heareth.

Job 27:9  Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him?

Job 35:12  There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.

Psalm 18:41  They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto Yahweh, but He answered them not.

 9:32  Since the world began (from of old) was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.

 9:33  If this man were not of God, He could do nothing.

Yahweh in the flesh, doing wonderous works in the open, yet darkness cannot comprehend the Light.

This guy gets it, not only was his vision restored, but his understanding of who he is and whose he is. He didn't “just believe,” as verse 31 of John states, he was awakened by the Spirit.

 9:34  They (the Jews) answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost you teach us? And they cast him out.

The blind man who received sight, and understanding, just gave the Pharisees a lesson and their pride was slammed.

 9:35  Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said unto him, Dost you believe on (entrust, have allegiance with) the Son of God?

 9:36  He answered and said, Who is He, Master, that I might believe on (entrust, join with) Him?

 9:37  And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen Him, and it is He that talketh with you.

 9:38  And he said, Teacher, I believe. And he worshipped Him.

 9:39  And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world (society), that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

They which see not were His sheep, His people, the children of Israel.

The Pharisees claimed to know the law. But they were really blind. They claimed to see, but were not His sheep. They were the children of Cain and Esau.

 9:40  And some of the Pharisees which were with Him heard these words, and said unto Him, Are we blind also?

 9:41  Jesus said unto them, If you were blind, you should have no sin: but now you say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.     

If the Edomites were blind, they would have been “put away” (lost sheep) who didn't know the law and the prophets, didn't make a claim to, and their sins wouldn't be accounted to, they would have been innocent because of ignorance.

The dispersed tribes of Israel lost and/or forgot their heritage because of their captivities.

He's telling the Edomites that they know they are doing wrong, and still pretend to be good, “but now you say you see, therefore your sins remain. Liars, hypocrites.”

Parable of the Good Shepard

 

Christ identifies His sheep and distinguishes the enemy by their tactics.

The 'lost sheep' are the children of Israel. Because of disobedience, they were cast off, put away in punishment, alienated from Yahweh because they went after their own gods.

The 'thief and robber' are the Edomites and Canaanites. The children of darkness. The Jews.

Christ is still talking to the Pharisees. Of course there are Israelite Judaeans among the crowds, and this discourse is for their benefit.

John 10:1  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

 10:2  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

 10:3  To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

 10:4  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

 10:5  And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

 10:6  This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they (the Pharisees) understood not what things they were which He spake unto them.

 10:7  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

 10:8  All that ever came before Me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

 10:9  I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved (preserved), and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

 10:10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

The Jews have been kicked out of 109 countries over time because of their destructive and parasitic habits. Now they are those in our own government passing their regulations, opening the doors to every race to consume our substance, and scattering the sheep by their Judaism which is taught in our “churches”.

 10:11  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Isaiah 40:11  He shall feed His flock like a shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

 10:12  But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

Zechariah 11:15  And Yahweh said unto me, Take unto you yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.

16  For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off (cast off), neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken (faith, allegiance), nor feed that that standeth still (the ignorant, the unlearned): but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

17  Woe to the idol (vain, no value) shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

 10:13  The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

 10:14  I am the good shepherd, and know My sheep, and am known of Mine.

2Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Prince knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ Yahshua depart from iniquity (lawlessness).

Isaiah 56:8  Yahweh GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather to Him, beside those that are gathered unto Him.

Christ came for the Israelites in Judaea and those of the dispersed tribes that are still “lost”.

 10:15  As the Father knoweth Me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down My life for the sheep.

 10:16  And other sheep I have (House of dispersed Israel), which are not of this fold (House of Judah): them also I must bring, and they shall hear My voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

This is all about one race, one flock, one people. The seed of Jacob.

Christ came for both Houses, the house of Judah (Israelites in Judaea, the circumcised), and the house of Israel (the rest of the children of Israel who were dispersed since their captivities, they were the uncircumcised, they/we forgot their/our history and the laws).

Ezekiel 37:22  And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

Both Houses are reconciled. Other races are not added to the flock.

Just a note: According to the Jews and the “churches”, the word 'nations' should be “Gentiles”, but that can't work according to the altered definition of the word 'nations'.

Reread Ezekiel 37:22 and insert Gentiles where nations is. It doesn't fit.

 10:17  Therefore doth My Father love Me, because I lay down My life, that I might take it again.

 10:18  No man taketh it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of My Father.

Isaiah 53:7  He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth.

Hebrews 2:9  But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that He by the favor of God should taste death for every man.

 10:19  There was a division therefore again among the Judaeans for these sayings.

 10:20  And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear you Him?

 10:21  Others said, These are not the words of Him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?      

Exodus 4:11  And Yahweh said unto him (Moses, who was slow of speech), Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I Yahweh?

 

 

While at breakfast with a Pharisee, Yahshua severely denounces the Pharisees and excites their enmity

Luke 11:37  And as He spake, a certain Pharisee besought Him to dine with him: and He went in, and sat down to meat.

 11:38  And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that He had not first washed before dinner.

 11:39  And the Prince said unto him, Now do you Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

 11:40  Ye fools, did not He that made that which is without make that which is within also?

 11:41  But rather give alms of such things as you have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.

 11:42  But woe unto you, Pharisees! for you tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

 11:43  Woe unto you, Pharisees! for you love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

 11:44  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.

Psalm 5:9  For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

 11:45  Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto Him, Master, thus saying you reproachest us also.

 11:46  And He said, Woe unto you also, you lawyers! for you lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and you yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

 11:47  Woe unto you! for you build the sepulchres (monuments) of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

 11:48  Truly you bear witness that you allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and you build their sepulchres.

 11:49  Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

 11:50  That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation (race);

 11:51  From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation (race).

 11:52  Woe unto you, lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge: you entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in you hindered.

  11:53  And as He said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge Him vehemently, and to provoke Him to speak of many things:

 11:54  Laying wait for Him, and seeking to catch something out of His mouth, that they might accuse Him.

Hypocrisy, covetousness, worldly anxieties, and watchfulness

 

In Chapter 12 of Luke there is no break in the narrative from Luke chapter 11.

Luke 12:1  In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, He began to say unto His disciples first of all, Beware you of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

The leaven is the doctrine of both the Pharisees and Sadducees. It has risen and now sold in today's “churches”.

 12:2  For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

The identity of True Israel is being brought to light. The identity of the Jews will not remain in darkness.

 12:3  Therefore whatsoever you have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which you have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

 12:4  And I say unto you My friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

Isaiah 51:7  Hearken unto Me, you that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My law; fear you not the reproach of men, neither be you afraid of their revilings.

8  For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but My righteousness shall be for ever, and My salvation (preservation) from generation to generation.

12  I, even I, am He that comforteth you: who art you, that you shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;

13  And forgettest Yahweh your maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor?

Jeremiah 1:8  Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with you to deliver you, saith Yahweh.

 12:5  But I will forewarn you whom you shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him.

 12:6  Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

 12:7  But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows.

 12:8  Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess (agree with) Me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess (agree with) before the angels of God:

 12:9  But he that denieth Me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.

 12:10  And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Spirit it shall not be forgiven.

Teaching that Christ is a Jew is blasphemy. The Jews are the descendants of Cain and Esau.

This blasphemy also includes race mixing, because Adamites carry the Spirit (DNA) of Yahweh, and He demands we remain holy and separate.

 12:11  And when they bring you unto the synagogues (assembly halls), and unto magistrates, and powers, take you no thought how or what thing you shall answer, or what you shall say:

 12:12  For the Holy Spirit shall teach you in the same hour what you ought to say.

 12:54  And He said also to the people, When you see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway you say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.

 12:55  And when you see the south wind blow, you say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

 12:56  Ye hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that you do not discern this time?

 12:57  Yea, and why even of yourselves judge you not what is right?

 12:58  When you goest with your adversary to the magistrate, as you art in the way, give diligence that you mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale (arrest) you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and the officer cast you into prison.

Proverbs 25:8  Go not forth hastily to strive, lest you know not what to do in the end thereof, when your neighbour hath put you to shame.

 12:59  I tell you, you shalt not depart thence, till you hast paid the very last mite.   

If you are at fault, don't fight it, you will pay.

Teaching in Perea, on journey toward Jerusalem- Warned against Herod Antipas

Luke 13:31  The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto Him, Get you out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill you.

 13:32  And He said unto them, Go you, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

Hebrews 2:10  For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory (honor), to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

 13:33  Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

 13:34  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto you; how often would I have gathered your children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and you would not!

Jerusalem often represents the children of Israel, and in their ignorance they are just as guilty in killing Yahweh's messengers as the Edomites were.

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

Leviticus 26:31  And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.

32  And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.

Psalm 69:25  Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.

Isaiah 1:7  Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

The same thing is happening today in America, the strangers are taking over. We have strayed from The Way and are being punished by Yahweh with the other races. Read the book of Joel.

Dining with chief Pharisee, Yahshua again heals on Sabbath

 

Luke 14:1  And it came to pass, as He went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched Him.

 14:2  And, behold, there was a certain man before Him which had the dropsy (virtigo).

 14:3  And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?

 14:4  And they held their peace. And He took him, and healed him, and let him go;

 14:5  And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?

Exodus 23:5  If you see the ass of him that hateth you lying under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, you shalt surely help with him.

Deuteronomy 22:4  Thou shalt not see your brother's ass or his ox fall down by the way, and hide yourself from them: you shalt surely help him to lift them up again.

Not only are we required to assist our brethren at odds, we must honor the sabbath by doing good.

 14:6  And they could not answer Him again to these things.

 14:7  And He put forth a parable to those which were bidden (invited), when He marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,

 14:8  When you art bidden (invited) of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than you be bidden (called) of him;

 14:9  And he that bade (invited) you and him come and say to you, Give this man place; and you begin with shame to take the lowest room.

 14:10  But when you art bidden (invited), go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade (invited) you cometh, he may say unto you, Friend, go up higher: then shalt you have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with you.

Proverbs 25:6  Put not forth yourself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:

7  For better it is that it be said unto you, Come up hither; than that you shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom your eyes have seen.

Be humble.

 14:11  For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Job 22:29  When men are cast down, then you shalt say, There is lifting up; and He shall save the humble person.

Psalm 18:27  For you wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

 14:12  Then said He also to him that bade (called) Him, When you makest a dinner or a supper, call not your friends, nor your brethren, neither your kinsmen, nor your rich neighbours; lest they also bid you again, and a recompence be made you.

 14:13  But when you makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:

 14:14  And you shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense you: for you shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

Proverbs 16:18  Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

19  Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Psalm 138:6  Though Yahweh be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly: but the proud He knoweth afar off.

 14:15  And when one of them that sat at meat with Him heard these things, he said unto Him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.

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.

The children of Israel are the bride. The seed of Jacob are the 'called'. Christ will not break His own laws and marry those of another race.

 14:16  Then said He unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade (called) many:

 14:17  And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden (called), Come; for all things are now ready.

 14:18  And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray you have me excused.

 14:19  And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray you have me excused.

 14:20  And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.

 14:21  So that servant came, and shewed his master these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.

 14:22  And the servant said, Master, it is done as you hast commanded, and yet there is room.

 14:23  And the master said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

 14:24  For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden (called) shall taste of my supper.    

The men who were invited to the feast must represent those who were learned in the Scriptures, for they would have been familiar with the invitation in the calling of the Scriptures, and therefore they represent the clerical class in Judaea. Christ is making an example of the priests and lawyers whom He is together with at the dinner. We have read earlier in the chapter in verse 11 that “everyone who is exalting himself shall be humbled, and he humbling himself shall be exalted”. When those who should have known of the invitation were too involved in their own affairs to come to the feast, the feast was filled with the common and humble people taken from the streets, the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame. The calling of God is not according to man, marked by who is successful in the world. Friendship with the world is enmity with God. The lesson is the same as that related in the verses before the parable was given, that Yahweh chooses the humble, the meek, the unlearned, in order to confound the wisdom of the world, and set at naught those who have elevated themselves into positions in society.

Acts 13:46  Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you (Judaeans): but seeing you put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles (dispersed of Israel).

The house of Judah was to receive the Word first, because they were the remnant that came back from captivity to Judaea to establish the law and bring in the Messiah according to the flesh.

The house of Israel, who were the 10 northern tribes, did not return after the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities and migrated abroad, forgetting their heritage. These are the “Gentiles” (correctly, the Nations) of Israel that Paul was sent to. The lost sheep.

Yahshua receives sinners- 3 Parables (lost sheep, coin, and son)

 

Luke 15:1  Then drew near unto Him all the publicans and sinners for to hear Him.

 15:2  And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

 15:3  And He spake this parable unto them, saying,

 15:4  What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

 15:5  And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

 15:6  And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

1Peter 2:10  Which in time past were not a people (divorced), but are now the people of God (reconciled): which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

25  For you were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop (overseer) of your souls.

Yahweh made a covenant with the children of Israel. Our ancestors disobeyed. Yahweh divorced us, and by His own law, had to die to remarry us.

The “churches” have been taught to teach that the “church” takes the place of Israel in the New Testament.

Nowhere can this be backed up by scripture. Israel then is Israel now. Yahweh chose Israel, gave them the law, covenants, and promises, and Israel alone is exclusive to His Word.

 15:7  I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

 15:8  Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

 15:9  And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.

 15:10  Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

 15:11  And He said, A certain man had two sons:

 15:12  And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

 15:13  And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

 15:14  And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

 15:15  And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

 15:16  And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

 15:17  And when he came to himself (came to his senses), he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

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

 15:19  And am no more worthy to be called your son: make me as one of your hired servants.

 15:20  And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

Acts 2:39  For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off (dispersed), even as many as the Prince our God shall call.

 15:21  And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight, and am no more worthy to be called your son.

Psalm 51:4  Against you, you only, have I sinned, and done this evil in your sight: that you mightest be justified when you speakest, and be clear when you judgest.

 15:22  But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

 15:23  And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it (offer sacrifice); and let us eat, and be merry:

 15:24  For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

 15:25  Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing.

 15:26  And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

 15:27  And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and your father hath killed the fatted calf (sacrificed), because he hath received him safe and sound.

 15:28  And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.

 15:29  And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve you, neither transgressed I at any time your commandment: and yet you never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

 15:30  But as soon as this your son was come, which hath devoured your living with harlots, you hast killed for him the fatted calf.

 15:31  And he said unto him, Son, you art ever with me, and all that I have is your.

 15:32  It was necessary that we should make merry, and be glad: for this your brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

Not only was the elder son envious and self-righteous, but even worse, he was envious of his own brother, to the point of despising him and even referring to him as “that son of yours” before his father. Christians should never despise their brethren, no matter how well the brethren are rewarded and even if it is perceived that they do not deserve any reward. Christians should never despise their brethren, no matter how great sinners they are, so long as they are willing to repent.

Christ teaches his disciples the parable about the unjust steward

Luke 16:14  And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided Him.

 16:15  And He said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

Psalm 7:9  Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

 16:16  The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

 16:17  And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

 16:18  Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.

The next verse starts a parable.

 16:19  There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously  (luxuriously) every day:

 16:20  And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

The Greek verb, meaning of 'sores' is akin to drag. As if he or someone dragged him their.

 16:21  And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

 16:22  And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

 16:23  And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

 16:24  And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

 16:25  But Abraham said, Son, remember that you in your lifetime receivedst your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and you art tormented.

 16:26  And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

 16:27  Then he said, I pray you therefore, father, that you wouldest send him to my father's house:

 16:28  For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

 16:29  Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

 16:30  And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

 16:31  And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

This parable is about the children of Jacob and the children of Esau, as both have Abraham for a father. Yahweh is the potter that made (chose) Jacob as a vessel of mercy, and Esau a vessel of destruction. Verse 19 describes the priesthood and/or the rich at the time, Edomites.

The gulf, in verse 26 is the difference between where the children of light go and where children of darkness go.

Christ goes on to teach His disciples that offences, scandals, and traps will come, but woe unto him through whom they come. Jews are masters at entrapment.

Effects of raising of Lazarus

 

John 11:45  Then many of the Judaeans which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on Him.

 11:46  But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

While some of these Judaeans may have been spies, some, out of ignorance of the situation, reported to the Pharisees to prove that this is the Christ.

 11:47  Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

Psalm 2:2  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Prince, and against His anointed (the group, the children of Israel)

 11:48  If we let Him thus alone, all men will believe on Him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

Occupancy, opportunity, and people.

Noteworthy: 'nation' is G1484, the same word that “Gentile” is used for. So by Jewish and “church” definition, the Jews are Gentiles. Bam! Another lie exposed.

Their position of authority was in jeopardy because Christ was exposing them.

 11:49  And one of them (a chief priest), named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

 11:50  Nor consider that it is expedient (advantageous) for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

Caiaphas was talking about his own nation, the Edomite Jews.

Israelite high priests were until death, the Jews high priests played musical chairs. Kaplow! Another lie exposed.

Acts 4:6  And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

Acts 5:17  Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,

John 18:13-14

13  And led Him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

14  Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was advantageous that one man should die for the people.

 11:51  And this spake he (Caiaphas) not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

Christ's message threatened the position of the Jews, Caiaphas said that Christ must die for His people instead of what would happen to Caiaphas' kindred if Christ lived.

 11:52  And not for that nation only, but that also He should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.  (Is 49:6)

Caiaphas knew that Christ came for His people who were among the Judaeans, and that those scattered abroad were also His people, the “lost”, or dispersed Nations of Israel.

 11:53  Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put Him to death.

Now the Edomites are full aware of the real threat.

 11:54  Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with His disciples.

Last journey to Jerusalem by way of Samaria and Galilee

Luke 17:20  And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

 17:21  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

The Greek has, '...the Kingdom of Yahweh is among you.'

We see the kingdom, but we do not see it coming, because we – or at least, those of us who are children of Israel – we are the Kingdom. Christ told the larger group that “the Kingdom of God is among you” because it was, for the Kingdom of God is Christ as King of His people who were right there among the greater population of Judaea. When Christ rules over the earth populated by His people, then the Kingdom of Yahweh shall be established.

Romans 14:17  For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Parables on prayer

 

Luke 18:1  And He spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint (falter);

 18:2  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:

 18:3  And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.

 18:4  And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

 18:5  Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary (annoys) me.

 18:6  And Jesus said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

 18:7  And shall not God avenge His own elect, which cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them?

Revelation 6:10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Prince, holy and true, dost you not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

'Our' would be our race, Adam. 'Them' would be the serpent race, Cain/Esau.

 18:8  I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?

Hebrews 10:37  For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

2Peter 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Prince as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9  The Prince is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

 18:9  And He spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

 18:10  Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

 18:11  The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank you, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

 18:12  I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

 18:13  And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

 18:14  I tell you, this man (the publican) went down to his house justified rather than the other (the Pharisee): for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Job 22:29  When men are cast down, then you shalt say, There is lifting up; and He shall save the humble person.

The Pharisee boasted that he was not a sinner, and proclaimed his own righteousness through his fulfillment of tithes and his fasting, which are in that manner no better than rituals – things which men perform merely to display their own justification, as if they could save themselves through that display.

This also goes for those who, by their own declaration, claim they are “saved”. Salvation means preservation, which means that it is 'ongoing', if you 'practice' His example. Scripture does not teach “once saved, always saved”.

Going from Galilee through Perea

 

Matthew 19:3  The Pharisees also came unto Him, tempting Him, and saying unto Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

Mark 10:2  And the Pharisees came to Him, and asked Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting Him.

 10:3  And He answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?

 10:4  And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.

And He answered and said unto them, Have you not read, that from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?  

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (separate).

They (Pharisees) say unto Him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?  (Deut 24:1)

He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.  

His disciples say unto Him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

Proverbs 21:19  It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

But He said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.

1Corinthians 7:2  Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

7  For I (Paul) would that all men were even as I myself (single). But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

9  But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn (desire).

For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Christ again foretells death and resurrection to His desicples

Matthew 20:18  Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death,

Mark 10:33  Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles (heathens):

He will be betrayed unto the Edomite Jew chief priests and scribes by a Jew (Judas).

 

 

Yahshua arrives at Bethany, near Jerusalem- Triumphant entry into Jerusalem

 

John 11:55  And the Judaeans' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

This is the 4th of 4 Passovers in Christ's ministry.

 11:56  Then sought they (Edomites) for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think you, that He will not come to the feast?

 11:57  Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where He were, he should shew it, that they might take (seize) Him.

The Edomite Jews had an all points bulletin out on the Prince.

 12:1  Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom He raised from the dead.

 12:9  Much people of Judaea therefore knew that He was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom He had raised from the dead.

 12:10  But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;

The Jews want to kill Christ AND dispose of the evidence (Lazarus)!

 12:11  Because that by reason of him many of the Judaeans went away, and believed on Jesus.

The true Israelites were leaving the brainwashing of the Pharisees and Sadducees and turning to Christ. More proof that the religious sects at the time were infiltrated by the enemy. Why can't people see this today?!

Triumphant entry into Jerusalem

Luke 19:35  And they brought him (colt) to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.  

Zechariah 9:9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King cometh unto you: He is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

And as He went, many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

And when He was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;

And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is He that cometh in the name of Yahweh; Hosanna in the highest, peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.  

Psalm 118:26  Blessed be He that cometh in the name of Yahweh: we have blessed you out of the house of Yahweh.

These things understood not His disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things unto Him.

Now the true Israelites were starting to remember.

The people therefore that was with Him when He called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

For this cause the people also met Him, for that they heard that He had done this miracle.

John 12:19  The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive you how you prevail nothing? behold, the world (society) is gone after Him.

And when He was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

Luke 19:39  And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto Him, Master, rebuke your disciples.

 19:40  And He answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

By no means would the testimony be prevented.

The idea of rocks crying out in testimony may have been something of an adage among the Greeks. The classics, Euripides, in his Hippolytus, put these words into the mouth of the hero Theseus: “For if I am to be bested by you when you have done this to me, Isthmian Sinis shall no longer attest that I killed him but say it was an idle boast, and the Skironian rocks near the sea shall deny that I am a scourge to evildoers!”

 19:41  And when He was come near, He beheld the city, and wept over it,

 19:42  Saying, If you hadst known, even you, at least in this your day, the things which belong unto your peace! but now they are hid from your eyes.

 19:43  For the days shall come upon you, that your enemies shall cast a trench about you, and compass you round, and keep you in on every side,

 19:44  And shall lay you even with the ground, and your children within you; and they shall not leave in you one stone upon another; because you knewest not the time of your visitation.

1Kings 9:7  Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for My name, will I cast out of My sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:

8  And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath Yahweh done thus unto this land, and to this house?

Micah 3:12  Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.

This certainly happened, the children of Israel migrated and went on to settle Europe and America. Our people have not lived or come out of Palestine for centuries.

The 'high places of the forest' were usually the groves, where the gods were worshiped. That viper den called Israel surely is worshiping other gods, Satan to be exact.

And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when He had looked round about upon all things, and the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple; and He healed them.

Matthew 21:15  And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased,

The Edomite Jew chief priests and scribes were 'sore displeased' with the Israelite Son of David because of His wonderful works.

 21:16  And said unto Him, Hearest you what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you hast perfected praise?

Psalm 8:2  Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast you ordained (established) strength because of your enemies, that you mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

And now the eventide was come, He went out of the city unto Bethany with the twelve, and He lodged there.

 

 

Barren fig tree cursed- Second cleansing of Temple

 

And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany into the city, He was hungry:

And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, He came, if haply He might find any thing thereon: and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

And Jesus answered and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on you henceforward for ever. And His disciples heard it. And presently the fig tree withered away.

And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple of God, and began to cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

And said unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.

The Greek has this part, '...a house of prayer for all the Nations..

All nations would be a deviation of scripture. As only Israelites are allowed to enter the temple.

All the nations. What nations? The Nations of the tribes of Jacob Israel. The chosen seed.

Isaiah 56:7  Even them (dispersed Israel) will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

The Hebrew word for people here is 'am' and it pertains to a specific tribe, nation or flock. More specifically, all the people of the children of Israel.

Jeremiah 7:11  Is this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith Yahweh.

If you still don't get that only Israelites were allowed in the temple, there are museums that today have the ancient signs that warned non-Israelites not to enter or the penalty is death. The temple is sacred, as well as the body. No foreign objects or people allowed.

This was enforced until the Edomite priesthood gained control and turned it into a flea market.

Mark 11:18  And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy Him: for they feared Him, because all the people was astonished at His doctrine.

Luke 19:47  And He taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy Him,

Of course, Christ was putting the fear of Yahweh back in their minds. They have gotten used to the 'doctrines of men', which is Judaism, and forgot their own heritage. Just like today.

Judaea in the time of Christ was much like America is today. Wherever the devils infiltrate, they work in collusion to take over the government and all of the high positions and offices of the land. If Christians would only believe their Bibles, that we should have nothing to do with any of the enemies of Christ our God, we would not get ourselves into the predicaments which lead to the very mess which all of our White nations are in today.

 

 

Israelite Greeks came up to worship at the feast

Christ explains how He will be lifted up

 

The people answered Him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest you, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

Ephesians 5:8  For you were sometimes darkness, but now light in the Prince: walk as children of light:

The children of light walk in a world of darkness, filled with darkness. Walk as the child of light you are, which has the Spirit (DNA) of Christ, and you will find your way.

While you have light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide Himself from them.

But though He had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on Him:

That the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Yahweh, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of Yahweh been revealed?  (Is 53:1)

Therefore they could not believe, because that Isaiah said again,

He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

Isaiah 6:9  And He said, Go, and tell this people, Hear you indeed, but understand not; and see you indeed, but perceive not.

10  Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

The Israelite Judaeans (Judahites) were the ones that came back from Babylonian captivity to re-establish the law and bring in the Messiah. Yet the Edomites slithered in and distorted the law and The Way, and as a result, the children of light became numb, and many did not hear the Shepherd's voice.  Just like those in today's “churches”.

John 12:41  These things said Isaiah, when he saw His glory (honor), and spake of Him.

Isaiah 6:1  In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Prince sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train (hem, skirt) filled the temple.

 12:42  Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on Him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

It is evident that some of the few true Israelites among the chief rulers understood that this was Him, but did not make it known, 'for fear of the Jews'. Joseph of Arimathea was also a disciple of his nephew, secretly.

 12:43  For they (Edomites) loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

 12:44  Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on Me, believeth not on Me, but on Him that sent Me.

 12:45  And he that seeth Me seeth Him that sent Me.  (1 Pet 1:21)

 12:46  I am come a light into the world (society), that whosoever believeth on Me should not abide in darkness.

 12:47  And if any man hear My words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world (society), but to save (preserve) the world (society).

 12:48  He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Deuteronomy 18:19  And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto My words which he shall speak in My name, I will require it of him.

Why do the “churches” and everyone call Him by a title? (Lord, God, Father, etc.)

The name of our God is YAHWEH (I am). The name of our Savior is YAHSHUA.

Who do you think you are calling when we say HalleluYAH! Praise Yah. There was no J until the 1600's AD!

 12:49  For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father which sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

 12:50  And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto Me, so I speak.

The Sanhedrin formally challenge Christ's authority as an accredited teacher

 

Mark 11:27  And they come again to Jerusalem: and as He was walking in the temple, there come to Him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,

Luke 20:1  And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as He taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon Him with the elders,

Matthew 21:23  And when He was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto Him as He was teaching, and said, By what authority doest you these things? and who gave you this authority?

 21:24  And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one question, which if you tell Me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.

 21:25  The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men?

The Pharisees had not gone to John because they thought of being baptized by him. They really went to see what he was doing, and why he thought he had such license to baptize.

And they (Edomites) reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; He will say unto us, Why then did you not believe him?

 21:26  But and if we shall say, Of men; all the people will stone us, for they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.  

 21:27  And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And He said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.

Here we see Yahshua Christ publicly exposing the Edomite priests and rulers for their folly, the “stripping the sovereigns and authorities”.

 21:28  But what think you? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.

 21:29  He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.

 21:30  And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.

 21:31  Which of the two did the will of his father? They say unto Him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

These Edomite priests say, but do not do.

 21:32  For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and you believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and you, when you had seen it, repented not afterward, that you might believe him.

Then began He to speak to the people this parable; There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

These servants represent the prophets of Israel.

And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.

Prophets, martyrs. John the Baptist.

Then said the master of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.

But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.

The heir would be Christ.

So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the master of the vineyard when he cometh, do unto those husbandmen?

They say unto Him, He will  destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.

The husbandmen received control of the vineyard but never paid the vineyard owner for its use. We then see in verse 14 that the husbandmen also have no share in the inheritance of the vineyard owner, unless they kill the rightful heir and usurp the vineyard. It is clear, therefore, that the husbandmen are not from among the children of Israel, but that they are outsiders having no part in the inheritance of Israel. This would accurately describe those Edomite Jews of Esau who had usurped the Kingdom of Judaea and all of its stations and offices during the decades leading up to and during the time of the earthly life of Christ. Just like today!

Jesus saith unto them, Did you never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is Yahweh's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Isaiah 28:16  Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. (Psa 118:22)

Isaiah 28:14  Wherefore hear the word of Yahweh, you scornful men (Edomites), that rule this people (Israel) which is in Jerusalem.

15  Because you (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.

Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

Christ is still talking to the chief priests, the Edomite Pharisees.

And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Daniel 2:34  Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35  Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

The stone that smote the image were the Germanic tribes, descendants of dispersed Israel. These were called “barbarians” and aided in the fall of Rome. These tribes were Adamic peoples and went on to be a great people that filled the earth, obviously. These are some of our ancestors. The seed of Abraham became many white nations.

Isaiah 28:17-19

17  Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet (a weight): and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

18  And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.

19  From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

No matter what, the vessels of destruction will be destroyed. The vessels of destruction are the descendants of Esau and Cain. (Rom 9:13, 21-22)

Matthew 21:45  And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard His parables, they perceived that He spake of them.

Luke 20:19  And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on Him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that He had spoken this parable against them.

And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden (invited) to the wedding: and they would not come.

The servants would be the prophets and disciples, those invited would be the children of Israel.

Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

But they (those invited) made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

And the remnant took his (the king's) servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

Go you therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, bid (invite) to the marriage.

So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

Since Israel (the 12 tribes) is the bride, and Christ came only for the lost sheep of Israel, and Yahweh demands a pure seed, by law, Christ can only marry His own kin. The wedding garment is a reference to skin color, race, posterity. This would be the Anglo-Saxon bride.

And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest you in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

This would be one of the tares of the parable in Matthew chapter 13 . Speechless because they have NO claim to that of the wheat.

Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

For many are called, but few are chosen.

The Pharisees and Herodians try to ensnare Christ about paying tribute

 

Matthew 22:15  Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle Him in His talk.

Mark 12:13  And they send unto Him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch Him in His words.

Isaiah 29:20  For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:

21  That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.

Matthew 22:16  And they sent out unto Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that you art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest you for any man: for you regardest not the person (stature, perception) of men.  (2 Chr 19:7, Prov 24:23, 1 Sam 16:7)

 22:17  Tell us therefore, What thinkest you? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

Shall we give, or shall we not give? But He, knowing their hypocrisy, and perceived their craftiness and wickedness, said unto them,

Matthew 22:18  But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt you Me, you hypocrites?  bring Me a penny, that I may see it. And they brought unto Him a penny.

And He saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

And they answered and said unto Him, Caesar's.

And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.

And they could not take hold of His words before the people: and they marvelled at His answer, and held their peace, and left Him, and went their way.

The Sadducees ask Yahshua a question about the resurrection

 

Matthew 22:23  The same day came to Him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked Him,

Mark 12:18  Then come unto Him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked Him,

Luke 20:27  Then came to Him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked Him,

Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.  (Deut 25:5-9)

There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children, leaving no seed.

And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.

And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.

Therefore in the resurrection, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all seven had her to wife.

Deuteronomy 25:5  If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her.

Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

The children of this world (age) marry, and are given in marriage:

But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain (light upon, make ready) that world (age), and the resurrection, when they shall rise from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

But as touching the resurrection of the dead, that they rise: have you not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying,

I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living: you therefore do greatly err.

Luke 20:39  Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, you hast well said.

 20:40  And after that they durst not ask Him any question at all.

Enoch 15:1-9 talks about marriage in heaven.

And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at His doctrine.

Matthew 22:34  But when the Pharisees had heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

 22:35  Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked Him a question, tempting Him, and saying,

 22:36  Master, which is the great commandment of all in the law?

Mark 12:28  And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He had answered them (Sadducees) well, asked Him, Which is the first commandment of all?

 12:29  And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; Yahweh our God is one Master:

12:30  And you shalt love Yahweh your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first and great  commandment.

Deuteronomy 6:5  And you shalt love Yahweh your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.

Deuteronomy 10:12  And now, Israel, what doth Yahweh your God require of you, but to fear Yahweh your God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul,

Deuteronomy 30:6  And Yahweh your God will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love Yahweh your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you mayest live.

 12:31  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love your neighbour as yourself.

Leviticus 19:18  Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shalt love your neighbour (kinsmen) as yourself: I am Yahweh.

There is none other commandment greater than these.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

1Timothy 1:5  Now the end of the commandment is charity (love) out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith (allegiance) unfeigned:

And the scribe said unto Him, Well, Master, you hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but He:

Deuteronomy 4:39  Know therefore this day, and consider it in your heart, that Yahweh He is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

Isaiah 45:6  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside Me. I am Yahweh, and there is none else.

Isaiah 46:9  Remember the former things of old: for I am Yahweh, and there is none else; I am Yahweh, and there is none like Me,

 12:33  And to love Him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

1Samuel 15:22  And Samuel said, Hath Yahweh as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of Yahweh? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

Hosea 6:6  For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of Yahweh more than burnt offerings.

 12:34  And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, He said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask Him any question.

Teaching in the temple

Messiah's descent from David and Lordship over David

Matthew 22:41  While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

Mark 12:35  And Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?

Matthew 22:42  Saying, What think you of Christ? whose son is He? They say unto Him, The Son of David.

For in the book of Psalms (110:1), How then doth David in spirit call him Master, saying, Yahweh said to my Master, Sit you on My right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool.

David therefore himself calleth him Master, how is He then his son? And the common people heard Him gladly.

 22:46  And no man was able to answer Him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask Him any more questions.  

Yahshua just stated and confirmed that He is an Israelite of the tribe of Judah, and the common people understood.

Heritage of the Anglo-Saxon Race

Adam and Eve begat Seth  

(Abel was murdered by Cain, who was Eve and the serpent-Devil's- son) Gen 3:15

Seth on up through Noah, Noah's son Shem on up through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

Jacob (Israel) and his 12 sons, one being Judah.

Judah's son Pharez on up through Jesse, father of David.

(See again, Matt 1:1-17 and Luke 3:23-38) This is Joseph and Mary's line up to Jesus.

Now the Kings of Ireland and Scotland are also in the line of David. These are the descendants of Zedekiah's daughters who left during the Babylonian captivity and went from the land of Canaan, to Egypt, then to Spain, then to Ireland and Scotland, and eventually England. This line leads up to Queen Elizabeth II. The stone, called “Jacob's Pillar” is the stone he laid his head upon and had a dream. Gen 28:10-22. This stone was carried from Haran and ultimately resides under the coronation chair in England. All these kings and queens were crowned over it.

Have you yet noticed that the ancient Israelites are not Jews?

To clarify: Cain's descendants mixed with Esau's descendants. These later became known as Canaanites and Edomites, and went on to take over the sects of the Sadducees and Pharisees, which Jesus rebuked and scorned, and ultimately to today's time, the  House of Rothschild and others. Bankers and merchants. Those who own and run everything now. Media, financial institutions, schools, medicine, religion (yes, our churches have been polluted with the doctrines of men), government, etc.  Time to wake up.

Last public discourses

Christ denounces the scribes and Pharisees

Then in the audience of all the people He said unto His disciples,

Matthew 23:2  Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

Malachi 2:7  For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they (priests) should seek the law at his (own) mouth: for he (priests) is the messenger of Yahweh of hosts.

The seat of Moses is the seat of authority in Judaea. Christ is warning his flock about the children of darkness who have infiltrated the priesthood.

 23:3  All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not you after their works: for they say, and do not.

 23:4  For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

What we see in government today is modern Pharisaism, endless and burdensome regulations. And the government lifts not one finger in order to assist men attempting to comply with those regulations.

 23:5  But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

Mark 12:38  And He said unto them in His doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

Luke 20:46  Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues (assembly halls),

But be not you called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all you are brethren.

James 3:1  My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

2Corinthians 1:24  Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith you stand.

And call no man your father upon the earth (Catholics!): for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Malachi 1:6  A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is Mine honour? and if I be a master, where is My fear? saith Yahweh of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise My name. And you say, Wherein have we despised Your name?

Neither be you called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased (humbled); and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Job 22:29  When men are cast down, then you shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

The example of the Christ is that if we would humble ourselves and instead seek to serve our brethren, then we shall have a greater reward in the Kingdom of heaven. Servants do not typically wear crowns, magnificent robes, or titles of grandeur.

 

Matthew 23:13  But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for you neither go in yourselves, neither suffer you them that are entering to go in.

 23:14  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore you shall receive the greater damnation.

They have all the status of an office and a name, but in reality they are consuming the Kingdom of God, rather than building it. Today we have that same thing, in the Catholic and all of the other mainstream so-called “church” organizations. Professional priests who live off of the fat of the people, and do nothing in return but decorate themselves with pomp and majesty. Joel Osteen.

 23:15  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

 23:16  Woe unto you, you blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

 23:17  Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?   (Ex 30:29)

 23:18  And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

 23:19  Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

Exodus 29:37  Seven days you shalt make an atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.

 23:20  Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.

 23:21  And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.

1Kings 8:13  I (Solomon) have surely built you an house to dwell in, a settled place for you to abide in for ever.

Solomon built a holy temple for Yahweh to dwell in.

Yahweh built a holy temple, us, our bodies, that through Christ He may dwell in forever.

Psalm 26:8  Yahweh, I have loved the habitation of your house, and the place where your honour dwelleth.

 23:22  And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by Him that sitteth thereon.

 23:23  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

1Samuel 15:22  And Samuel said, Hath Yahweh as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of Yahweh? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

 23:24  Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

 23:25  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

 23:26  Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

  23:27  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

 23:28  Even so you also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

 23:29  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

 23:30  And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

 23:31  Wherefore you be witnesses unto yourselves, that you are the children of them which killed the prophets.

 23:32  Fill you up then the measure of your fathers.

 23:33  Ye serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?

 23:34  Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

 23:35  That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias (John the Baptist's father) son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar.

Revelation 18:24  And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

1John 3:12  (Love one another) Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

 23:36  Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation (race).

From verse 1-36 Christ was exhorting the scribes and Pharisees, who were Edomite Jew infiltrators that sat in authority in Judaea. Moses' seat.

Christ will avenge all the righteous blood they shed, and utter destruction will come upon that serpent race.

 

 

On Mount Olive, Christ speaks to His disciples about His second coming

 

And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Matthew 24:47  Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

 24:48  But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My master delayeth his coming;

 24:49  And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

 24:50  The master of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

 24:51  And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

We should all be doing whatever we can for the edification of Yahweh's kingdom and His people. If we are found so doing, we shall have all the more reward.

 

 

Yahshua predicts His crucifixion

 

Matthew 26:3  Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,

Psalm 2:2  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yahweh, and against His anointed, saying,

 26:4  And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill Him.

Luke 22:2  And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill Him; for they feared the people.

The “churches” teach that the Romans killed Christ. But once again, scripture reveals otherwise. Caiaphas and the priesthood were Edomites. The religious authority, then just as today, has been taken control of by Esau/Edom.

Mark 14:1  After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him by craft, and put Him to death.

 14:2  But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.

Judas, stung by the rebuke of Christ, bargains with his kin to betray Him

Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, and he went unto the chief priests,

Matthew 26:14  Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,

Mark 14:10  And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray Him unto them.

Luke 22:4  And he (Judas) went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him unto them.

And said unto them, What will you give me, and I will deliver Him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.

Many people want to imagine a spiritual Satan entering into the body of Judas at this point, but the text does not demand such an interpretation. The Hebrew form of satan means adversary when it is used as a noun. The Greek word translated as approached here is a form of the verb. The KJV is notorious for changing nouns into verbs and vice versa. The Adversary here may have been any one of those men (Edomites) in Judaea who were opposed to Christ and had long been plotting against Him.

And when they (Edomites) heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money.

Zechariah 11:12  And I said unto them, If you think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

And from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

Christ is betrayed, arrested and forsaken

And Judas also, which betrayed Him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with His disciples.

Matthew 26:47  And while He yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.

Mark 14:43  And immediately, while He yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.

John 18:3  Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.

These were not Roman soldiers, they were the priest's officers.

 18:4  Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon Him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek you?

 18:5  They answered Him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am He. And Judas also, which betrayed Him, stood with them.

 18:6  As soon then as He had said unto them, I am He, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

 18:7  Then asked He them again, Whom seek you? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.

 18:8  Jesus answered, I have told you that I am He: if therefore you seek Me, let these (disciples) go their way:

 18:9  That the saying might be fulfilled, which He spake, Of them which you gavest Me have I lost none.

Now he that betrayed Him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is He: hold Him fast.

A kiss before death was an act of betrayal.

2Samuel 20:9  And Joab said to Amasa, Art you in health, my brother? And Joab took Amasa by the beard with the right hand to kiss him.

10  But Amasa took no heed to the sword that was in Joab's hand: so he smote him therewith in the fifth rib, and shed out his bowels to the ground, and struck him not again; and he died.

And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed Him.

But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest you the Son of man with a kiss?

Psalm 41:9  Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

If this Jew, Judas, who walked along Christ for three years, could not be converted by the Prince Himself, they NEVER WILL. Stop trying to convert the enemy and go find some of our own.

And they laid their hands on Him, and took Him.

When they which were about Him saw what would follow, they said unto Him, Master, shall we smite with the sword?

And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his right ear.

And Jesus answered and said, Suffer you thus far. And He touched his ear, and healed him. The      servant's name was Malchus.

Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up your sword into the sheath,for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword: the cup which My Father hath given Me, shall I not drink it?

Genesis 9:6  Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

Thinkest you that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He shall presently give Me more than twelve legions of angels?  (2 Kings 6:17, Dan 7:10)

But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Isaiah 53:7  He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth.

Psalm 22:6  But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

Luke 22:52  Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to Him, Be you come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and you laid no hold on Me: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

Then all the disciples forsook Him, and fled.

Psalm 88:8  Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from Me; you hast made Me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.

Lamentations 4:20  The breath of our nostrils, the anointed of Yahweh, was taken in their pits (pitfall), of whom we said, Under his shadow we shall live among the heathen.

And there followed Him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:

And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

Some believe that this was Mark himself, who, in that humility often exhibited by other apostles, purposely neglected to mention his own name.

Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound Him,

 

 

Yahshua first examined by Annas, retired High Priest

John 18:12  Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound Him,

 18:13  And led Him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

The true high priests of Israel did not play musical chairs, a high priest was for life. This is more evidence of the Edomite authority in the priesthood then.

 18:14  Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Judaeans, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.  (John 11:50)

 18:19  The high priest then asked Jesus of His disciples, and of His doctrine.

 18:20  Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world (society); I ever taught in the synagogue (assembly hall), and in the temple, whither the Judaeans always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

 18:21  Why askest you Me? ask them which heard Me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.

 18:22  And when He had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest you the high priest so?

 18:23  Jesus answered Him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest you Me?   

Speedy trial and condemnation by Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin

 

Matthew 26:57  And they that had laid hold on Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.

Mark 14:53  And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

Matthew 26:59  Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put Him to death;

Mark 14:55  And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put Him to death; and found none.

For many bare false witness against Him, but their witness agreed not together.

Psalm 27:12  Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

And there arose certain, and bare false witness against Him, saying,

We heard Him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

But Christ was referring to His body. The enemy not having truth in them, thought he was threatening the temple and their authority.

But neither so did their witness agree together.

And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest you nothing? what is it which these witness against you?  (Is 53:7)

But Jesus held His peace, and answered nothing. And the high priest answered and said unto Him, I adjure you by the living God, that you tell us whether you be the Christ, the Son of God.

And Jesus said, I am: and you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.  (Dan 7:13)

Matthew 26:65  Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now you have heard His blasphemy.

What think you? And they all condemned Him to be guilty of death.

This is why the seed of the serpent is considered to be the devil, which means in Greek the false accuser.  The children of Esau are always falsely accusing the children of Jacob.

Leviticus 24:16  And he that blasphemeth the name of Yahweh, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger (sojourning kinsman), as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of Yahweh, shall be put to death.

This goes for everybody. Not only is speaking against Yahweh blasphemy, so is race mixing.

And the men that held Jesus mocked Him,

And some began to spit on Him, and to buffet Him, and had blindfolded Him, and to say unto Him, Prophesy unto us, you Christ, Who is he that smote you?: and the servants did strike Him with the palms of their hands.

Isaiah 50:6  I gave My back to the smiters, and My cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not My face from shame and spitting.

And many other things blasphemously spake they against Him.

Day Trial and Crucifixion

Yahshua Christ formally condemned by the Sanhedrin

Matthew 27:1  When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put Him to death:

Luke 22:66  And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led Him into their council, saying,

 22:67  Art you the Christ? tell us. And He said unto them, If I tell you, you will not believe:

 22:68  And if I also ask you, you will not answer Me, nor let Me go.

 22:69  Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

 22:70  Then said they all, Art you then the Son of God? And He said unto them, Ye say that I am.

And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of His own mouth: and bound Jesus, and carried Him away, and delivered Him to Pilate.

Mark 15:1  And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried Him away, and delivered Him to Pilate.

Matthew 27:3  Then Judas, which had betrayed Him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

 27:4  Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see you to that.

We are told that Judas was a devil by Christ Himself, at John 6:70 where it says “70 Yahshua replied to them: “Have I not chosen you twelve? Yet one from among you is a false accuser!”

 27:5  And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

 27:6  And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

 27:7  And they took counsel, and bought with it the potter's field, to bury strangers in.

 27:8  Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

Acts 1:19  And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.

 27:9  Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of Him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

 27:10  And gave them for the potter's field, as Yahweh appointed me.

Yahshua before Pilate

 

Then when they had bound Him, they led Jesus from Caiaphas, and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.

Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring you against this man?

They answered and said unto him, If He were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered Him up unto you.

And they began to accuse Him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ a King.

The Greek has, '...and saying of Himself to be the anointed king.'

The word 'Christ' comes from 'christos', meaning 'anointed'. Only the seed of Jacob is anointed. 'Christos' often refers to the group, the anointed children of Israel.

Luke 23:3  And Pilate asked Him, saying, Art you the King of the Judaeans? And He answered him and said, Thou sayest it.

 23:4  Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.

 23:5  And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry (Judaea), beginning from Galilee to this place.

'Jewry' is a deliberate deviation from the Greek word for the region of Judah, 'Ioudaia' (Judaea).

John 18:31  Then said Pilate unto them, Take you Him, and judge Him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:

 18:32  That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which He spake, signifying what death He should die.  (John 3:14, 8:28, 12:34, 13:18)

The Romans did not kill Christ, as the “churches” teach.

The Jews killed Christ. They wanted the Romans to carry it out so the Jews were not to blame.

If the Romans were not there, the Jews would have stoned Christ. Crucifixion was a Roman punishment. The Jews facilitated His death, thus fulfilling prophecy.

 18:33  Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto Him, Art you the King of the Judaeans?

 18:34  Jesus answered him, Sayest you this thing of yourself, or did others tell it you of Me?

 18:35  Pilate answered, Am I a Judaean? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered you unto me: what hast you done?

 18:36  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world (society): if My kingdom were of this world (society), then would My servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is My kingdom not from hence.  (now- not yet, but upon the 2nd Advent)

Daniel 2:44  And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

 18:37  Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art you a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world (society), that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth My voice.

Matthew 27:12  And when He was accused of the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing.

Mark 15:3  And the chief priests accused Him of many things: but He answered nothing.

Then said Pilate unto Him, Hearest you not how many things they witness against you?

And Pilate asked Him again, saying, Answerest you nothing? behold how many things they witness against you.

And He answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.   (Isa 53:7)

Pilate saith unto Him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in Him no fault at all.

Yahshua before Herod Antipas the Tetrarch

Luke 23:6  When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.

 23:7  And as soon as he knew that He belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.

 23:8  And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see Him of a long season, because he had heard many things of Him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by Him.

 23:9  Then he questioned with Him in many words; but He answered him nothing.

 23:10  And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused Him.

 23:11  And Herod with his men of war set Him at nought, and mocked Him, and arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him again to Pilate.

Isaiah 53:3  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from Him; He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.

 23:12  And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.     

Herod, an Edomite Jew, surprisingly finds no fault.

There was much contention between Pilate and the Judaeans, first over his plan to place the effigies (statues) of Caesar in the temple at Jerusalem, and then over the construction of an aqueduct into the city, where many Judaeans protested its being built and they were killed. While there is not much other evidence to provide a reason, many attribute these things as the cause of the enmity between Pilate and Herod the tetrarch.

Yahshua the second time before Pilate

The Roman soldiers mock Yahshua

Luke 23:13  And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,

 23:14  Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined Him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof you accuse Him:

Acts 3:13  The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified His Son Jesus; whom you delivered up, and denied Him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go.

 23:15  No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto Him.

 23:16  I will therefore chastise Him, and release Him.  

Herod evidently sent Christ back to Pilate without charges, and Pilate attempted to use that as a reason to free Him.

Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged Him.

Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, called Praetorium; and gathered unto Him the whole band of soldiers.

And they stripped Him, and put on Him a scarlet robe.

And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon His head, and a reed in His right hand: and they bowed the knee before Him, and mocked Him, saying, Hail, King of the Judaeans!

And they spit upon Him, and took the reed, and smote Him on the head.

Matthew 27:19  When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have you nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of Him.

 27:20  But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

Mark 15:11  But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.

Acts 3:14  But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;

 15:10  For he (Pilate) knew that the chief priests had delivered Him for envy.

The Greek: 10  For he knew that on account of envy the high priests handed Him over.

(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)

Explained fully in John 18:39, that on account of a custom in Judaea, one criminal each year at this time was granted by the governor a release and a stay of execution.

The governor answered and said unto them,

But you have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will you therefore that I release unto you the King of the Judaeans?

And there was one named Barabbas, a murderer and robber, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection (controversy) with Him, who had committed murder in the insurrection (uprising).

Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will you that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas.

Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?

And they cried out again, Crucify Him.

The Greek ends this verse with '...He must be crucified!'.

Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath He done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify Him.

And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when He had scourged Him, to be crucified.

Luke 23:24  And Pilatos decided to meet their demands.

Pilate did not give the sentence, he found Christ guiltless. It was the agitation from the Edomite priests that stirred the people.

Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that you may know that I find no fault in Him.  

Luke 23:21  But they cried, saying, Crucify Him, crucify Him.

 23:22  And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath He done? I have found no cause of death in Him: I will therefore chastise Him, and let Him go.

 23:23  And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that He might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.

When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see you to it.

Pilate found no crime. He told the Edomite priests “you see to it.”

Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.

And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.

John 19:5  Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

 19:6  When the chief priests therefore and officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, Crucify Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Take you Him, and crucify Him: for I find no fault in Him.

 19:7  The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God.

 19:8  When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;

Pilate did not want to be a part of an unrighteous murder.

The Jews could stir up trouble for Pilate against the Caesar. Blackmail.

 19:9  And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art you? But Jesus gave him no answer.

 19:10  Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest you not unto me? knowest you not that I have power to crucify you, and have power to release you?

 19:11  Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against Me, except it were given you from above: therefore he that delivered Me unto you hath the greater sin.

 19:12  And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release Him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If you let this man go, you art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.

The Jews are experts at blackmailing, entrapping and agitation.

 19:13  When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.

 19:14  And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

 19:15  But they cried out, Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

More evidence that the Jews are not Israel.

Genesis 49:10  The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be.

The Jews never gathered unto Him. But His people did, the Adamic race, the anglo-saxon peoples of Europe and America, New Zealand, Canada, and Australia.

 19:16  Then delivered he Him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led Him away.

First 3 hours on the cross

And Pilate wrote a superscription and put it on the cross  over His head, THIS IS JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JUDAEANS.

John 19:20  This title then read many of the Judaeans: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

 19:21  Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Judaeans; but that He said, I am King of the Judaeans.

 19:22  Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

INRI

Ieus Nazarenus Rex Iudeorum

Those competent to pass on the correct translation of these four Latin words insist that they mean: Jesus the Nazarene Leader of the Judeans.

It is not properly translated to write it, as found in the King James Bible, “This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.”

Latin was Pontius Pilate's native tongue, and he certainly knew how to express himself properly.

Iudeorum means Judeans, not Jews

Likewise, rex is from the Latin verb rexi meaning only “to rule or to lead.”

“King” was used later on in history as a meaning for the word rex.

The Greek equivalent of Iudeorum is Ioudaios, and it still means Judeans.

And they that passed by railed on Him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, you that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save yourself. If you be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

Psalm 109:25  I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon Me they shaked their heads.

Psalm 22:7  All they that see Me laugh Me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

8  He trusted on Yahweh that He would deliver him: let Him deliver Him, seeing He delighted in Him.

Matthew 27:41  Likewise also the chief priests mocking Him, with the scribes and elders, said,

Mark 15:31  Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; Himself He cannot save.

He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He be the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him.

He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him: for He said, I am the Son of God.

Watch of the tomb

 

Matthew 27:62  Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,

 27:63  Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while He was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

 27:64  Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night, and steal Him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.

 27:65  Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch (guards): go your way, make it as sure as you can.

Pilate still demanded that the evil priesthood handle their own business.

 27:66  So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

Some of the guard report to the Edomite rulers

Matthew 28:11  Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.

 28:12  And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money (bribes) unto the soldiers,

 28:13  Saying, Say you, His disciples came by night, and stole Him away while we slept.

 28:14  And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.

The priesthood, if needed, could give the governor trouble with Ceasar. These devil bastards influenced the authorities then just as they do today.

 28:15  So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Judaeans until this day.

Appearance of two disciples (Cleophas and another, possibly Peter) on the way to Emmaus

Luke 24:13  And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.

 24:14  And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

 24:15  And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus Himself drew near, appearing in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. and went with them.

Luke 24:13-32 records the journey to Galilee. Cleopas is a version of Cephas, who is Simon Peter. The other may have been Luke.

 24:16  But their eyes were holden (restrained, blinded) that they should not know Him.

 24:17  And He said unto them, What manner of communications are these that you have one to another, as you walk, and are sad?

 24:18  And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto Him, Art you only a stranger in (dwell near) Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

 24:19  And He said unto them, What things? And they said unto Him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

 24:20  And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and have crucified Him.

Not the Romans, the Jews.

 24:21  But we trusted that it had been He which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, today is the third day since these things were done.

Notice it does NOT say 'redeemed the whole world'.

Another note: Even the apostles thought the kingdom would come right away.

 24:22  Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;

 24:23  And when they found not His body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that He was alive.

 24:24  And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but Him they saw not.

 24:25  Then He said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

 24:26  Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory?  (Acts 17:3)

 24:27  And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself.

The reference takes us to verse 45 “Then opened He their understanding...” and also references Genesis 3:15, which states “And I (Yahweh) will put enmity between you (Satan) and the woman (Eve), and between your (Satan's) seed and her seed; it (Eve's seed, Adamites/Israelites) shall bruise your (Satan's) head, and you (Satan) shalt bruise his ( Adamites/Israelites) heel.”

Christ was revealing the enmity between the children of light and the children of darkness from the beginning, and about the prophecies and fulfilling of them.  The age old battle between Israel and the Canaanite/Edomite Jews. Now we are in the 2,000 year grace period (Hos 6:2  After two days will He revive-restore- us: in the third day He will raise-establish- us up, and we shall live in His sight.). We must 'practice' our allegiance to Christ in order that we are preserved until His 2nd Advent, and He ends this enmity for good.

 24:28  And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and He made as though He would have gone further.

 24:29  But they constrained Him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And He went in to tarry with them.

 24:30  And it came to pass, as He sat at meat with them, He took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

 24:31  And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him; and He vanished out of their sight.

 24:32  And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened (explained) to us the scriptures?

Acts 4:1  And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,

 4:2  Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.

Why did the religious sects grieve about the apostles teaching truth? Because they were of the serpent seed. John 8:44

 4:3  And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.

 4:4  Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

Wow, 5000. They sure were hurting the business of the Sadducees.

The “churches” like to use verses like this and others to push their “just believe” doctrine. It is evident throughout scripture that He wants us to obey as well. And our actions are proof.

 4:5  And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,

 4:6  And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

These kindred are defined by Christ Himself as the seed of the wicked one. He is referring to Satan's children. These priests (Edomites/Canaanites) infiltrated the religious sects of Judaea when the children of Israel were in Babylonian captivity, outside of Judaea. When they came back, after the Medes and Persians defeated the Babylonians, they had to clean house (see Ezra and Nehemiah). But obviously the “thorns” were always in our sides. Our government and leadership today has been infiltrated just like back then with these Edomite/Canaanites. 75% of our politicians and lawmakers are Jews! Ruling over us like back then.

 4:7  And when they (Edomite priests)  had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have you done this?

Luke 12:11  And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take you no thought how or what thing you shall answer, or what you shall say:

12  For the Holy Spirit shall teach you in the same hour what you ought to say.

 4:8  Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,

 4:9  If we this day be examined 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 Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you 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 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.

 4:11  This is the stone (Christ) which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.  (Psa 118:22, Isa 28:16)

 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.  (Matt 1:21)

The original Greek: 11 He is the stone, who was set at naught by your builders, who has become the head cornerstone.

12 And there is no deliverance in any other, for there is not another name under the heaven which has been given among men by which it is necessary for us to be preserved.

 4:13  Now when they (Edomite rulers) saw 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 heaven and earth, because You hast hid these things from the wise (conceited) and prudent (pious), and hast revealed them unto babes (disciples).

 4:14  And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they (Edomite rulers) could say nothing against it.

 4:15  But when they (Edomite rulers) had commanded them (apostles) to go aside out of the council, they (Edomite rulers) conferred among themselves,

 4:16  Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them (Israelites) that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.

 4:17  But that it spread no further among the people (Israelites), let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name (Prince Yahshua).

 4:18  And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.

 4:19  But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge you (you decide).

 4:20  For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.

 4:21  So when they (Edomite rulers) had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.

 4:22  For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.

 4:23  And being let go, they (the apostles) went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.

The apostles left the company of the Edomite priestly rulers and 'went to their own company', Israelites.

 4:24  And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Master, you art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:  (2 Ki 19:15)

 4:25  Who by the mouth of your servant David hast said, Why did the heathen (nations) rage, and the people imagine vain things?

 4:26  The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the God, and against His Christ.

The Greek: 26 The kings of the earth made a stand, and the rulers gathered into one place against Yahweh and against His Anointed.

Christ does not always refer to Him. It often is a reference to the group, the 'called out' seed of Jacob/Israel.

 

Acts 5:14  And believers (followers, doers) were the more added to the Prince, multitudes both of men and women.)

 5:15  Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.

 5:16  There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

 5:17  Then the high priest (Annas, an Edomite)rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, (jealousy),

 5:18  And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.  (Luke 21:12)

 5:19  But the angel of the Prince by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,

 5:20  Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.  (John 6:68, 17:3)

 5:21  And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the  high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.

 5:22  But when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned, and told,

 5:23  Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened, we found no man within.

 5:24  Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow.

 5:25  Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom you put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.

 5:26  Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned.

 5:27  And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,

 5:28  Saying, Did not we straitly command you that you should not teach in this name (Christ Yahshua)? and, behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.

The Edomite Sadducees were accusing the apostles of the doctrine of Christ!?! This alone proves that the Sadducees and Pharisees doctrine was NOT the doctrine of Christ. And the Sadducees and Pharisees WERE responsible for Christ's death.  Did they not cry Matthew 27:25  Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.  They agitated the people and instigated these riots.

 5:29  Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

 5:30  The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you slew and hanged on a tree.

 5:31  Him hath God exalted with His right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

Forgiveness to repentant Israel. Specific. Only. His people. A certain seed.

 5:32  And we are His witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Spirit, whom God hath given to them that obey Him.  (John 15:26-27)

The 'we' and the 'them' are Israelites. The 'so is' is in italics, meaning added by the translators. We are Christ's and the Holy Spirit's witnesses.

 5:33  When they (Sadducees) heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them (apostles).

 5:34  Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;

Gamaliel was likely one of the few Israelites left on the council, along with Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus.

 5:35  And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what you intend to do as touching (what you are about to do to) these men.

According to the “churches” the NT replaces the OT Israelites with the “church”. Why is Israel still addressed, specifically,  in the NT, 75 times? Because the OT and NT are about the same people.

 5:36  (Gamaliel still speaking) For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.

 5:37  After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.

 5:38  And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:

Proverbs 21:30  There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against Yahweh.

Gamaliel basically was telling them that by their fruits you shall know them. The examples of verses 36-37 were of bad fruit.

 5:39  But if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it; lest haply you be found even to fight against God.

Luke 21:15  For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

1Corinthians 1:25  Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

 5:40  And to him (Gamaliel) they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.

 5:41  And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name.  (Matt 5:12)

 5:42  And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

 

Acts 6:7  And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

Faith is a noun, belief and trust, which are verbs, are components of faith, but faith is simply 'allegiance'. Allegiance is more than trust and belief, it requires action, practice, and loyalty.

 6:8  And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

 6:9  Then there arose certain (Jews) of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.

 6:10  And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.

 6:11  Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.  (1 Ki 21:10,13)

 6:12  And they (religious rulers) stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council,

 6:13  And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:

1Kings 21:13  And there came in two men, children of Belial, and sat before him (Naboth): and the men of Belial witnessed against him, even against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king. Then they carried him forth out of the city, and stoned him with stones, that he died.

Naboth owned a vineyard and it was usurped by Edomites. Even a 1000 years before Christ, these children of Satan infiltrated our society and practiced the same evil against the children of Israel.

 6:14  For we (Edomite priests) have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.

 6:15  And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his (Stephen's)  face as it had been the face of an angel.

 

Acts 9:10  And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Prince in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Prince.

 9:11  And the Prince said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,

 9:12  And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.

 9:13  Then Ananias answered, Prince, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to your saints at Jerusalem:

 9:14  And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on your name.

 9:15  But the Prince said unto him, Go your way: for he is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear My name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:

The Greek: 15 But the Prince said to him “Go! For he is a vessel chosen by Me who is to bear My Name before both the Nations and kings of the sons of Israel.

I pray by now you are starting to understand that 'Gentiles' is a stumbling block for the unlearned. “Gentile” is a Latin word that means nation, kin or race. It can be any nation of peoples of the same posterity. By definition it can refer to a black nation, or a Chinese nation, etc. But of the same race. The Jews (today's Pharisees) changed the meaning, forced, and added the 'non-Israelite' meaning. Therefore fooling you into thinking that you are of another race other than your true identity, which is an anglo-saxon Israelite of the seed of Abraham. And that we are the children of the light, of the promises made to Our father Abraham. The Jews are imposters. Wake up. By their fruits you shall know them.

 

 9:16  For I will shew him (Paul) how great things he must suffer for My name's sake.

Romans 1:1  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, an called ambassador, set apart for the gospel of God,

 9:17  And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Prince, even Jesus, that appeared unto you in the way as you camest, hath sent me, that you mightest receive your sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

 9:18  And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

 9:19  And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.

 9:20  And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues (assembly halls), that He is the Son of God.

 9:21  But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?

 9:22  But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Judaeans which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this Man is the very Christ.

 9:23  And after that many days were fulfilled, the Judaeans (scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees) took counsel to kill him:

 9:24  But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.

2Corinthians 11:32  In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me:

 9:25  Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.

 9:26  And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.

 9:27  But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Prince in the way, and that He had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus (Yahshua).

 

Acts 15:1  And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except you be circumcised after the manner of Moses, you cannot be saved.

These 'certain men' were the Judaizers. Spreading their religion of apostasy.

 15:2  When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question (debate).

 15:3  And being brought on their way by the church (assembly), they passed through Phenice and Samaria, declaring the conversion of the Gentiles (dispersed Nations): and they caused great joy unto all the brethren.

 15:4  And when they were come to Jerusalem, they were received of the church (assembly), and of the apostles and elders, and they declared all things that God had done with them.

 15:5  But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.

These are those Israelite members of the sects that did not understand, or were fooled by the Edomite members.

 15:6  And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.

 

 15:13  Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Prince Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

Vagabond (Gen 4:12,14, Cain's descendants). Jews try proclaiming Christ to adjure demons and were overcome by the demons.

Acts 19:14  And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.

 19:15  And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?

 19:16  And the man in whom the evil spirit was, leaped on them (the 7 vagabonds), and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

 19:17  And this was known to all the Judaeans and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Prince Jesus was magnified.

 19:18  And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.

For all the verses that the “church” uses that say “just believe”, here is one that teaches that there is more. “Just believing” gets you NOTHING.

 19:19  Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

 19:20  So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

People burned their pagan items. When will we do the same?

 

 

The chief captain realizes Paul is a Roman

Note: A Jew cannot be a Roman citizen. Just another proof that Paul was not a Jew.

 

Acts 22:30  On the morrow, because he would have known the certainty wherefore he was accused of the Jews, he loosed him from his bands, and commanded the chief priests and all their council to appear, and brought Paul down, and set him before them.

Acts 23:1  And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men, brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.

 23:2  And the high priest Ananias (Edomite Sadducee) commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.  (1 Ki 22:24, Jer 20:2)

 23:3  Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite you, you whited wall: for sittest you to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law?

Leviticus 19:35  Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

 23:4  And they that stood by said, Revilest you God's high priest?

 23:5  Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of your people.

Exodus 22:28  Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of your people.

 23:6  But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.  (Phil 3:5)

Paul was smart, he pitted the Pharisees against the Sadducees about resurrection. This took the attention off of him. Beating them at their own game.

 23:7  And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided.  

 23:8  For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.

 23:9  And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees' part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.

 23:10  And when there arose a great dissension, the chief captain, fearing lest Paul should have been pulled in pieces of them, commanded the soldiers to go down, and to take him by force from among them, and to bring him into the castle.

 23:11  And the night following the Prince stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as you hast testified of Me in Jerusalem, so must you bear witness also at Rome.

 23:12  And when it was day, certain of the Judaeans banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.

 23:13  And they were more than forty which had made this conspiracy.

 23:14  And they came to the chief priests and elders, and said, We have bound ourselves under a great curse, that we will eat nothing until we have slain Paul.

 23:15  Now therefore you with the council signify to the chief captain that he bring him down unto you to morrow, as though you would enquire something more perfectly concerning him: and we, or ever he come near, are ready to kill him.

 23:16  And when Paul's sister's son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.

 23:17  Then Paul called one of the centurions unto him, and said, Bring this young man unto the chief captain: for he hath a certain thing to tell him.

 23:18  So he took him, and brought him to the chief captain, and said, Paul the prisoner called me unto him, and prayed me to bring this young man unto you, who hath something to say unto you.

 23:19  Then the chief captain took him by the hand, and went with him aside privately, and asked him, What is that you hast to tell me?

 23:20  And he (Paul's nephew) said, The Jews have agreed to desire you that you wouldest bring down Paul to morrow into the council, as though they would enquire somewhat of him more perfectly.

 23:21  But do not you yield unto them: for there lie in wait for him of them more than forty men, which have bound themselves with an oath, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him: and now are they ready, looking for a promise from you.

 23:22  So the chief captain then let the young man depart, and charged (instructed)  him, See you tell no man that you hast shewed these things to me.

 23:23  And he called unto him two centurions, saying, Make ready two hundred soldiers to go to Caesarea, and horsemen threescore and ten, and spearmen two hundred, at the third hour of the night;

 23:24  And provide them beasts, that they may set Paul on, and bring him safe unto Felix the governor.

 23:25  And he wrote a letter after this manner:

 23:26  Claudius Lysias unto the most excellent governor Felix sendeth greeting.

 23:27  This man was taken of the Jews, and should have been killed of them: then came I with an army, and rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman.

 23:28  And when I would have known the cause wherefore they accused him, I brought him forth into their council:

 23:29  Whom I perceived to be accused of questions of their law, but to have nothing laid to his charge worthy of death or of bonds.

 23:30  And when it was told me how that the Jews laid wait for the man, I sent straightway to you, and gave commandment to his accusers also to say before you what they had against him. Farewell.

 23:31  Then the soldiers, as it was commanded them, took Paul, and brought him by night to Antipatris.

 23:32  On the morrow they left the horsemen to go with him, and returned to the castle:

 23:33  Who, when they came to Caesarea, and delivered the epistle to the governor, presented Paul also before him.

 23:34  And when the governor had read the letter, he asked of what province he was. And when he understood that he was of Cilicia;

 23:35  I will hear you, said he, when your accusers are also come. And he commanded him to be kept in Herod's judgment hall.

In Acts chapter 23, after a plot against Paul's life was revealed to the Roman military tribune, Paul is sent under arms and cloak of night to the residence of the Roman procurator in Caesarea. Upon his arrival there the procurator accepted Paul as his prisoner, when he declared that he would hear his case. This is in spite of the fact that Paul had not violated any Roman laws, but as the Roman commander had written to the governor, he found the Judaeans (Jews) “accusing him concerning inquires of their law, and having not one accusation worthy of death or of bonds.

 

 

Paul stands before Festus

 

Acts 25:7  And when he was come, the Judaeans which came down from Jerusalem stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove.

 25:8  While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Judaeans (Sadducees), neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.

 25:9  But Festus, willing to do the Judaeans (Sadducees) a pleasure, answered Paul, and said, Wilt you go up to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me?

 25:10  Then said Paul, I stand at Caesar's judgment seat, where I ought to be judged: to the Judaeans have I done no wrong, as you very well knowest.

 25:11  For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar.

 25:12  Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council, answered, Hast you appealed unto Caesar? unto Caesar shalt you go.

 25:13  And after certain days king Agrippa and Bernice came unto Caesarea to salute Festus.

 25:14  And when they had been there many days, Festus declared Paul's cause unto the king, saying, There is a certain man left in bonds by Felix:

 25:15  About whom, when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Judaeans (Sadducees) informed me, desiring to have judgment against him.

 25:16  To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him.

 

Acts 26:1  Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for yourself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself:

 26:2  I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before you touching (concerning) all the things whereof I am accused of the Judaeans (Sadducees):

 26:3  Especially because I know you to be expert in all customs and questions which are among the Judaeans: wherefore I beseech you to hear me patiently.

 26:4  My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Judaeans;

Again, why not 'gentile'? It's the same word (G1484). Gentile does not mean non-Jew, it simply means a nation, a people, or a tribe.

 26:5  Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.

 26:6  And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:

The promise of this seed can be traced from Gen 3:15, 22:18, and 26:4.

 26:7  Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope's sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Judaeans.

 26:8  Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?

 26:9  I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.

 26:10  Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.

'Saints' are those of the children of Israel.

The “churches” teach that anyone who “believes” becomes a saint.

 26:11  And I punished them oft in every synagogue (assembly hall), and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.  

 26:12  Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,

 26:13  At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.

 26:14  And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest you Me? it is hard for you to kick against the pricks.

 

Philippans 3:1  Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Prince. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous (troublesome), but for you it is safe (assuring).

 3:2  Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision (opposition).

Christ and scripture refer to Canaanites as dogs. Which are a branch of Jews.

In some instances, an Israelite that imitates the enemy is considered a dog.

Psalm 22:16  For dogs have compassed Me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed Me: they pierced My hands and My feet.

Isaiah 56:10  His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

11  Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

Matthew 7:6  Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast you your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Matthew 15:26  But He answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

Revelation 22:15  For without (outside) are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Galatians 5:15  But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that you be not consumed one of another.  Don't act as the heathen do.

Note the end of Philippians 3:2  ... beware of the concision.

Romans 2:28  For he is not a Judaean, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

Circumcision had a purpose from Abraham until about 150 BC. When everybody does it, you really can't tell by just the physical distinction. Paul is warning us to beware, to discern by their works.

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

Deuteronomy 30:6  And Yahweh your God will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love Yahweh your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you mayest live.

Jeremiah 4:4  Circumcise yourselves to Yahweh, and take away the foreskins of your heart, you men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest My fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.

The House of Judah (Judah, Benjamin and Levi) are the circumcision. This is a reference to the tribes that returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity. They had and kept the law that was given to their ancestors in the Exodus. They had no excuse for falling away.

 3:4  Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

Paul was raised a Pharisee. He followed the letter of the law as it was understood at that time, under the influence of the Edomite scribes and Pharisees. They boasted that they followed the law, or what was then the perverted 'the traditions of men'. The law of Moses, altered.

 3:5  Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

To Noble Tiberius Caesar, Emperor of Rome.

Noble Sovereign, Greeting: The events of the last few days in my province have been of such a character that I will give the details in full as they occurred, as I should not be surprised if, in the course of time, they may change the destiny of our nation, for it seems of late that all the gods have ceased to be propitious (favorable). I am almost ready to say, Cursed be the day that I succeeded Vallerius Flaceus in the government of Judea; for since then my life has been one of continual uneasiness and distress.

On my arrival at Jerusalem I took possession of the praetorium, and ordered a splendid feast to be prepared, to which I invited the tetrarch (Herod Antipater) of Galilee, with the high priest and his officers. At the appointed hour no guests appeared. This I considered an insult offered to my dignity, and to the whole government which I represent. A few days after, the high priest deigned to pay me a visit. His deportment was grave and deceitful. He pretended that his religion forbade him and his attendants to sit at the table with the Romans, and eat and offer libations with them, but this was only a sanctimonious seeming, for his very countenance betrayed his hypocrisy. Although I thought it expedient to accept his excuse, from that moment I was convinced that the conquered had declared themselves the enemy of the conquerors; and I would warn the Romans to beware of the high priests (Pharisees) of this country. They would betray their own mother to gain office and a luxurious living.

It seems to me that, of conquered cities, Jerusalem is the most difficult to govern. So turbulent are the people that I live in momentary dread of an insurrection. I have not soldiers sufficient to suppress it. I had only one centurion and a hundred men at my command. I requested a reinforcement from the prefect of Syria, who informed me that he had scarcely enough troops sufficient to defend his own province. An insatiate thirst for conquest to extend our empire beyond the means of defending it, I fear, will be the cause of the final overthrow of our whole government. I lived secluded from the masses, for I did not know what those priests (Pharisees) might influence the rabble to do; yet I endeavored to ascertain, as far as I could, the mind and standing of the people.

Among the various rumors that came to my ears, there was one in particular that attracted my attention. A young man, it was said, had appeared in Galilee, preaching with a noble unction a new law in the name of the God that had sent him. At first I was apprehensive that his design was to stir up the people against the Romans, but my fears were soon dispelled. Jesus of Nazareth spoke rather as friend of the Romans than of the Jews.


One day in passing by the place of Siloe, where there was a great concourse of people, I observed in the midst of the group a young man who was leaning against a tree, calmly addressing the multitude. I was told it was Jesus. This I could easily have suspected, so great was the difference between him and those listening to him. His golden-colored hair and beard gave to his appearance a celestial aspect. He appeared to be about thirty years of age. Never have I seen a sweeter or more serene countenance. What a contrast between him and his hearers, with their black beards and tawny complexions!


Unwilling to interrupt him by my presence, I continued my walk, but signified to my secretary to join the group and listen. My secretary's name is Manlius. He is the grandson of the chief of the conspirators who encamped in Etruria waiting for Cataline. Manlius had been for a long time an inhabitant of Judea, and is well acquainted with the Hebrew language. He was devoted to me, and worthy of my confidence. On entering the praetorium I found Manlius, who related to me the words Jesus had pronounced at Siloe. Never have I read in the works of the philosophers anything that can compare to the maxims of Jesus. One of the rebellious Jews (Pharisees), so numerous in Jerusalem, having asked Jesus if it was lawful to give tribute to Caesar, he replied, "Render to Caesar the things that belong to Caesar, and to God the things that are God's."

It was on account of the wisdom of his sayings that I granted so much liberty to the Nazarene; for it was in my power to have had him arrested, and exiled to Pontus; but that would have been contrary to the justice which has always characterized the Roman government in all its dealings with men; this man was neither seditious nor rebellious; I extended to him my protection, unknown perhaps to Himself. He was at liberty to act, to speak, to assemble and address the people, and to choose disciples, unrestrained by any praetorian mandate. Should it ever happen (may the gods avert the omen!), should it ever happen, I say, that the religion of our forefathers will be supplanted by the religion of Jesus, it will be to this noble toleration that Rome shall owe her premature death, while I, miserable wretch, will have been the instrument of what the Jews call Providence, and we call destiny.


This unlimited freedom granted to Jesus provoked the Jews (Pharisees)--not the poor, but the rich and powerful. It is true, Jesus was severe on the latter, and this was a political reason, in my opinion, for not restraining the liberty of the Nazarene. "Scribes and Pharisees," he would say to them, "you are a race of vipers; you resemble painted sepulchres; you appear well to men, but you have death within you." At other times he would sneer at the alms of the rich and proud, telling them that the mite of the poor was more precious in the sight of God. Complaints were daily made at the praetorium against the insolence of Jesus.


I was informed that some misfortune would befall him; that it would not be the first time that Jerusalem had stoned those who called themselves prophets; an appeal would be made to Caesar. However, my conduct was approved by the Senate, and I was promised a reinforcement after the termination of the Parthian war.


Being too weak to suppress an insurrection, I resolved upon adopting a measure that promised to restore the tranquility of the city without subjecting the praetorium to humiliating concession. I wrote to Jesus, requesting an interview with him at the praetorium. He came. You know that in my veins flows the Spanish mixed with Roman blood--as incapable of fear as it is of weak emotion. When the Nazarene made his appearance, I was walking in my basilic (anciently, a public hall or court of judicature), and my feet seemed fastened with an iron hand to the marble pavement, and I trembled in every limb as does a guilty culprit, though the Nazarene was as calm as innocence itself.

When he came up to me, he stopped, and by a signal sign he seemed to say to me, "I am here," though he spoke not a word. For some time I contemplated with admiration and awe this extraordinary type of man--a type of man unknown to our numerous painters, who have given form and figure to all the gods and the heroes. There was nothing about him that was repelling in its character, yet I felt too awed and tremulous to approach him.


"Jesus," said I to him at last--and my tongue faltered--"Jesus of Nazareth, for the last three years I have granted you ample freedom of speech; nor do I regret it. Your words are those of a sage. I know not whether you have read Socrates or Plato, but this I know, there is in your discourses a majestic simplicity that elevates you far above those philosophers. The Emperor is informed of it, and I, his humble representative in this country, am glad of having allowed you that liberty of which you are so worthy. However, I must not conceal from you that your discourses have raised up against you powerful and inveterate enemies.


"Nor is this surprising. Socrates had his enemies, and he fell a victim to their hatred. Yours are doubly incensed--against you on account of your discourses being so severe upon their (Pharisees) conduct; against me on account of the liberty I have afforded you. They (Pharisees) even accuse me of being indirectly leagued with you for the purpose of depriving the Hebrews of the little civil power, which Rome has left them (Pharisees). My request--I do not say my order--is, that you be more circumspect and moderate in your discourses in the future, and more considerate of them (Pharisees), lest you arouse the pride of your enemies, and they raise against you the stupid populace, and compel me to employ the instruments of law."


The Nazarene calmly replied,
"Prince of the earth, your words proceed not from true wisdom. Say to the torrent to stop in the midst of the mountain-gorge; it will uproot the trees of the valley. The torrent will answer you that it obeys the laws of nature and the creator. God alone knows where flow the waters of the torrent. Verily I say to you, before the rose of Sharon blossoms, the blood of the Just shall be spilt."


"Your blood shall not be spilt," said I with deep emotion; "you are more precious in my estimation on account of your wisdom than all the turbulent and proud Pharisees who abuse the freedom granted them by the Romans. They conspire against Caesar, and convert his bounty into fear, impressing the unlearned that Caesar is a tyrant and seeks their ruin. Insolent wretches! They are not aware that the wolf of the Tiber sometimes clothes himself with the skin of the sheep to accomplish his wicked designs. I will protect you against them. My praetorium shall be an asylum, sacred both day and night."

Jesus carelessly shook His head, and said with a grave and divine smile:
"When the day shall have come, there will be no asylums for the son of man, neither in the earth nor under the earth. The asylum of the just is there," pointing to the heavens. "That which is written in the books of the prophets must be accomplished."


"Young man," I answered mildly, "you will oblige me to convert my request into an order. The safety of the province, which has been confided to my care, requires it. You must observe more moderation in your discourses. Do not infringe my order. You know the consequences. May happiness attend you; farewell."


"Prince of the earth," replied Jesus, "I come not to bring war into the world (Society), but peace, love, and charity. I was born the same day on which Augustus gave peace to the Roman world (Society). Persecutions proceed not from Me. I expect it from others, and will meet it in obedience to the will of My Father, who has shown Me the way. Restrain, therefore, your worldly prudence. It is not in your power to arrest the victim at the foot of the tabernacle of expiation."


So saying, He disappeared like a bright shadow behind the curtain of the basilic (court)--to my great relief, for I felt a heavy burden on me, of which I could not relieve myself while in his presence.


To Herod, who then reigned in Galilee, the enemies of Jesus addressed themselves, to wreak their vengeance on the Nazarene. Had Herod consulted his own inclinations, he would have ordered Jesus immediately to be put to death; but, though proud of his royal dignity, yet he hesitated to commit an act that might lessen his influence with the Senate, or, like me, was afraid of Jesus. But it would never do for a Roman officer to be scared by a Jew. Previously to this, Herod called on me at the praetorium, and, on rising to take leave, after some trifling conversation, asked me what was my opinion concerning the Nazarene. I replied that Jesus appeared to me to be one of those great philosophers that great nations sometimes produced; that his doctrines were by no means sacrilegious, and that the intentions of Rome were to leave him to that freedom of speech which was justified by his actions. Herod smiled maliciously, and, saluting me with ironical respect, departed.


The great feast of the Judaeans was approaching, and the intention was to avail themselves of the popular exultation which always manifests itself at the solemnities of a Passover. The city was overflowing with a tumultuous populace, clamoring for the death of the Nazarene. My emissaries informed me that the treasure of the temple had been employed in bribing the people. The danger was pressing. A Roman centurion had been insulted. I wrote to the Prefect of Syria for a hundred foot-soldiers and as many cavalry. He declined. I saw myself alone with a handful of veterans in the midst of a rebellious city, too weak to suppress an uprising, and having no choice left but to tolerate it. They had seized upon Jesus, and the seditious rabble, although they had nothing to fear from the praetorium, believing, as their leaders had told them, that I winked at their sedition--continued vociferating: "Crucify Him! Crucify Him!"


Three powerful parties had combined together at the time against Jesus: First, the Herodians and the Sadducees, whose seditious conduct seemed to have proceeded from double motives: they hated the Nazarene and were impatient of the Roman yoke. They never forgave me for having entered the holy city with banners that bore the image of the Roman emperor; and although in this instance I had committed a fatal error, yet the sacrilege did not appear less heinous in their eyes. Another grievance also rankled in their bosoms. I had proposed to employ a part of the treasure of the temple in erecting edifices for public use. My proposal was scorned.


The Pharisees were the avowed enemies of Jesus. They cared not for the government. They bore with bitterness the severe reprimands which the Nazarene for three years had been continually giving them wherever He went. Timid and too weak to act by themselves, they had embraced the quarrels of the Herodians and the Sadducees. Besides these three parties, I had to contend against the reckless and profligate populace, always ready to join a sedition, and to profit by the disorder and confusion that resulted therefrom.


Jesus was dragged before the High Priest and condemned to death. It was then that the High Priest, Caiaphas, performed a divisory act of submission. He sent his prisoner to me to confirm His condemnation and secure His execution. I answered him that, as Jesus was a Galilean, the affair came under Herod's jurisdiction, and ordered Him to be sent thither. The wily tetrarch professed humility, and, protesting his deference to the lieutenant of Caesar, he committed the fate of the man to my hands. Soon my palace assumed the aspect of a besieged citadel. Every moment increased the number of the malcontents. Jerusalem was inundated with crowds from the mountains of Nazareth. All Judea appeared to be pouring into the city.


I had taken a wife from among the Gauls, who pretended to see into futurity. Weeping and throwing herself at my feet, she said to me: "Beware, beware, and touch not that man; for He is holy. Last night I saw Him in a vision. He was walking on the waters; He was flying on the wings of the wind. He spoke to the tempest and to the fishes of the lake; all were obedient to Him. Behold, the torrent in Mount Kedron flows with blood, the statues of Caesar are filled with gemonide; the columns of the interium have given way; and the sun is veiled in mourning like a vestal in the tomb. Ah! Pilate, evil awaits you. If you will not listen to the vows of your wife, dread the curse of a Roman Senate; dread the frowns of Caesar."


By this time the marble stair groaned under the weight of the multitude. The Nazarene was brought back to me. I proceeded to the halls of justice, followed by my guard, and asked the people in a severe tone what they demanded.


"The death of the Nazarene," was the reply.


"For what crime?"


"He has blasphemed; He has prophesied the ruin of the temple; He calls Himself the Son of God, the Messiah, the King of the Judaeans."


"Roman justice," said I, "punishes not such offences with death."


"Crucify him! Crucify him!" cried the relentless rabble. The vociferations of the infuriated mob shook the palace to its foundations.


There was but one who appeared to be calm in the midst of the vast multitude; it was the Nazarene. After many fruitless attempts to protect Him from the fury of His merciless persecutors, I adopted a measure which at the moment appeared to me to be the only one that could save His life. I proposed, as it was their custom to deliver a prisoner on such occasions, to release Jesus and let Him go free, that He might be the scapegoat, as they called it; but they said Jesus must be crucified.


I then spoke to them of the inconsistency of their course as being incompatible with their laws, showing that no criminal judge could pass sentence on a criminal unless he had fasted one whole day; and that the sentence must have the consent of the Sanhedrin, and the signature of the president of that court; that no criminal could be executed on the same day his sentence was fixed, and the next day, on the day of his execution, the Sanhedrin was required to review the whole proceeding; also, according to their law, a man was stationed a short way off on horseback to cry the name of the criminal and his crime, and the names of his witnesses, and to know if any one could testify in his favor; and the prisoner on his way to execution had the right to turn back three times and to plead any new thing in his favor. I urged all these pleas, hoping they might awe them into subjection; but they still cried, "Crucify him! Crucify him!"


I then ordered Jesus to be scourged, hoping this might satisfy them; but it only increased their fury. I then called for a basin, and washed my hands in the presence of the clamorous multitude, thus testifying that in my judgment Jesus of Nazareth had done nothing deserving of death; but in vain. It was His life these wretches thirsted for.


Often in our civil commotions have I witnessed the furious anger of the multitude, but nothing could be compared to what I witnessed on this occasion. It might have been truly said that all the phantoms of the infernal regions had assembled at Jerusalem. The crowd appeared not to walk, but to be borne off and whirled as a vortex, rolling along in living waves from the portals of the praetorium even to Mount Zion, with howling screams, shrieks, and vociferations such as were never heard in the seditions of the Pannonia, or in the tumults of the forum.


By degrees the day darkened like a winter's twilight, such as had been at the death of the great Julius Caesar. It was likewise the Ides of March. I, the continued governor of a rebellious province, was leaning against a column of my basilic (court), contemplating athwart (across) the dreary gloom these fiends of Tartarus dragging to execution the innocent Nazarene. All around me was deserted. Jerusalem had vomited forth her indwellers through the funeral gate that leads to Gemonica.


An air of desolation and sadness enveloped me. My guards had joined the cavalry, and the centurion, with a display of power, was endeavoring to keep order. I was left alone, and my breaking heart admonished me that what was passing at that moment appertained rather to the history of the gods than that of men. A loud clamor was heard proceeding from Golgotha, which, borne on the winds, seemed to announce an agony such as was never heard by mortal ears. Dark clouds lowered over the pinnacle of the temple, and setting over the city covered it as with a veil. So dreadful were the signs that men saw both in the heavens and on the earth that Dionysius the Aeropagite is reported to have exclaimed, 'Either the author of nature is suffering or the universe is falling apart.'


Whilst these appalling scenes of nature were transpiring, there was a dreadful earthquake in lower Egypt, which filled everybody with fear, and scared the superstitious Jews almost to death. It is said Balthasar, an aged and learned Judaean of Antioch, was found dead after the excitement was over. Whether he died from alarm or grief is not known. He was a strong friend of the Nazarene.


Near the first hour of the night, I threw my mantle around me and went down into the city toward the gates of Golgotha. The sacrifice was consummated. The crowd was returning home, still agitated, it is true, but gloomy, taciturn (silence), and desperate. What they had witnessed had stricken them with terror and remorse. I also saw my little Roman cohort pass by mournfully, the standard-bearer having veiled his eagle in token of grief; and I overheard some of the Jewish soldiers murmuring strange words, which I did not understand. Others were recounting miracles very like those which have so often smitten the Romans by the will of the gods. Sometimes, groups of men and women would halt, then, looking back toward Mount Calvary, would remain motionless in expectation of witnessing some new prodigy.


I returned to the praetorium, sad and pensive. On ascending the stairs, the steps of which were still stained with the blood of the Nazarene, I perceived an old man in a suppliant posture, and behind him several Romans in tears. He threw himself at my feet and wept most bitterly. It is painful to see an old man weep, and my heart being already overcharged with grief, we, though strangers, wept together. And in truth it seemed that the tears lay very shallow that day with many whom I perceived in the vast concourse of people. I never witnessed such an extreme revulsion of feeling. Those who betrayed and sold him, those who testified against him, those who cried, "Crucify him, we have his blood," all slunk off like cowardly curs, and washed their teeth with vinegar. As I am told that Jesus taught a resurrection after death, if such should be the fact, I am sure it commenced in this vast crowd.


"Father," said I to him, after gaining control of my feelings, "who are you, and what is your request?"


"I am Joseph of Arimathea," replied he, "and am come to beg of you upon my knees the permission to bury Jesus of Nazareth."


"Your prayer is granted," said I to him; and at the same time I ordered Manlius to take some soldiers with him to superintend the interment, lest it should be profaned.


A few days after, the sepulchre was found empty. His disciples proclaimed all over the country that Jesus had risen from the dead, as He had foretold. This created more excitement even than the crucifixion. As to its truth, I cannot say for certain, but I have made some investigation of the matter; so you can examine for yourself, and see if I am in fault, as Herod represents.


Joseph buried Jesus in his own tomb. Whether he contemplated his resurrection or calculated to cut him another, I cannot tell. The day after He was buried one of the priests came to the praetorium and said they were apprehensive that His disciples intended to steal the body of Jesus and hide it, and then make it appear that He had risen from the dead, as He had foretold, and of which they were perfectly convinced. I sent him to the captain of the royal guard (Malcus) to tell him to take the Jewish soldiers, place as many around the sepulchre as were needed; then if anything should happen, they could blame themselves, and not the Romans.


When the great excitement arose about the sepulchre being found empty, I felt a deeper solicitude than ever. I sent for Malcus, who told he had placed his lieutenant, Ben Isham, with one hundred soldiers, around the sepulchre. He told me that Isham and the soldiers were very much alarmed at what had occurred there that morning. I sent for this man, Isham, who related to me, as near as I can recollect the following circumstances: He said that
at about the beginning of the fourth watch they saw a soft and beautiful light over the sepulchre. He at first thought that the women had come to embalm the body of Jesus, as was their custom, but he could not see how they had gotten through the guards. While these thoughts were passing through his mind, behold, the whole place was lighted up, and there seemed to be crowds of the dead in their grave-clothes. All seemed to be shouting and filled with ecstasy, while all around and above was the most beautiful music he had ever heard; and the whole air seemed to be full of voices praising God. At this time there seemed to be a reeling and swimming of the earth, so that he turned so sick and faint that he could not stand on his feet. He said the earth seemed to swim from under him, and his senses left him, so that he knew not what did occur. I asked him in what condition he was when he came to himself. He said he was lying on the ground with his face down. I asked him if he could not have been mistaken as to the light. Was it not day that was coming in the East? He said at first he thought of that, but at a stone's cast it was exceedingly dark; and then he remembered it was too early for day


I asked him if his dizziness might not have come from being wakened up and getting up too suddenly, as it sometimes had that effect. He said he was not, and had not been asleep all night, as the penalty was death for him to sleep on duty. He said he had let some of the soldiers sleep at a time. Some were asleep then. I asked him how long the scene lasted. He said he did not know, but he thought nearly an hour. He said it was hid by the light of day. I asked him if he went to the sepulchre after he had come to himself. He said no, because he was afraid; that just as soon as relief came, they all went to their quarters.


I asked him if he had been questioned by the priests. He said they had. They wanted him to say it was an earthquake, and that they were asleep, and offered him money to say that the disciples came and stole Jesus; but he saw no disciples; he did not know that the body was gone until he was told. I asked him what was the private opinion of those priests he had conversed with. He said that some of them thought that Jesus was no man; that he was not a human being; that he was not the son of Mary; that he was not the same that was said to be born of the virgin in Bethlehem; that the same persons had been on the earth before with Abraham and Lot, and at many times and places.

It seems to me that, if the Judaean theory be true, these conclusions are correct, for they are in accord with this man's life, as is known and testified by both friends and foes, for the elements were no more in his hands than the clay in the hands of the potter. He could convert water into wine; He could change death into life, disease into health; He could calm the seas, still the storms, call up fish with a silver coin in its mouth. Now, I say, if He could do all these things, which He did, and many more, as the Judaeans all testify, and it was doing these things that created this enmity against Him--He was not charged with criminal offenses, nor was He charged with violating any law, nor of wronging any individual in person, and all these facts are known to thousands, as well by His foes as by His enemies--I am almost ready to say, as did Manlius at the cross, "Truly, this was the Son of God."


Now, noble Sovereign, this is as near the facts in the case as I can arrive at, and I have taken pains to make the statement very full, so that you may judge of my conduct upon the whole, as I hear that Herod Antipater has said many hard things of me in this matter. With the promise of faithfulness and good wishes to my noble Sovereign,


I am your most obedient servant,

 

Pontius Pilate
