IMPORTANT: BIBLICAL PROOF THAT JEWS NEED JESUS:

There seems to be this popular false teaching floating around today which states, “The Jews don’t NEED to be saved in the name of Jesus, since their Torah-observance and/or their already being born as Jewish ALREADY makes them righteous before God!” That would imply that a person being ethnically and/or spiritually Jewish is “enough”, in God’s eyes.

But let us go back in the bible during the times of the Old Testament. Abraham had TWO sons (Ishmael — by his bondwoman Hagar and Isaac — by his wife Sarah). Many Jews of today claim they are saved by being the “physical descendants of Abraham”, ALONE! However, God’s everlasting covenant in the Old Testament was with ISAAC, not Ishmael! So what does that mean in plain English, you might ask?

It means that God’s everlasting covenant is a SPIRITUAL COVENANT, not so much a physical one! And the spiritual covenant is brought about by FAITH! Faith in what, you might ask? Faith in the one and only true Messiah! Who is the Messiah? Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty! The bible is VERY CLEAR that Salvation only comes by grace through FAITH + obedience.

 

We’re further told in Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus”

“So what does THAT mean, then?”, some may ask. It means that IN the true spiritual kingdom of God/Jesus and also IN the future Millennial Kingdom, there are absolutely NO distinctions between male and female, rich and poor, Jew nor Greek, for ALL obedient servants of Jesus Christ ARE HIS SPIRITUAL CHILDREN and are ALL considered CHILDREN OF GOD!

In fact, John 14:6 expressidly states: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.

Translation? Jesus is saying there in that passage that he’s the ONLY way to Salvation, the ONLY way for forgiveness of sins, the ONLY way to receive eternal life, and the ONLY way to ESCAPE God’s ETERNAL WRATH! In other words, outside of HIM and him alone, there IS no “Salvation!”

In a previous post, I stated that the Hebrews/Jews were God’s chosen people and that to say otherwise was “demonic”. But I should’ve EXPANDED on what I meant by that. The Hebrews were God’s chosen people back in ancient biblical times, (pre-flesh appearing Jesus), YES! BUT…..in a world that became flesh-appearing Jesus, followed later by post-human flesh-appearing Jesus, (soon to be replaced once again by the PHYSICAL/FLESH-APPEARING AND FULLY SPIRITUALLY GLORIFIED JESUS), the “chosen people” of God will then became ALL souls that had/have faith AND obedience in Jesus Christ Almighty (rather Hebrew or Gentile!) as the following passage illustrates:

Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus”.

While it’s true to say that the Hebrews were the “firstborn” or original “first-fruits” of God, it’s NEVER ok to say that “today’s Jews” don’t need Jesus Christ to be “Saved”! For ALL souls (INCLUDING “Jewish ones”) NEED Jesus Christ to be saved! ALL!

For like I stated, outside of Jesus Christ, there IS no Salvation! The VEIL to the Jewish temple was BROKEN by Jesus during his crucifixion! Meaning, the OLD COVENANT (the “Jewish Temple”) no longer applied, ONLY the NEW COVENANT (Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection & consequent ascension back up to heaven) applied/applies! For ONLY the blood of Jesus on the cross gave a way for all present-at-the-time-of-Jesus and future mankind a way to be “eternally redeemed in God’s site!”

Many Christians out there today REFUSE to tell Jews about Jesus, thinking that the Jews are already saved by “the Torah”. But those Christians are DECEIVED and sadly DELUDING THEMSELVES! For remember that Satan’s goal is to KILL, STEAL & DESTROY! The Hebrews (back in ancient biblical times) were the Lord’s chosen people! Satan’s been trying to DESTROY THEM and/or their way of life ever since (Haman, Pharaoh, Nero, Nimrod, Hitler, antisemitism in & of itself (*especially* among many of today’s “Christians”), Palestinian Authority, etc.)

In fact, during the time of Constantine, “anti-Jewish sentiment” was at an all time high. Pro-Jesus Jews wanted nothing to do with the “Orthodox Jews” since they considered them responsible for the “execution/crucifixion” of Jesus. Romans (for the most part) ALSO wanted nothing to do with the Orthodox Jews OR “Pro-Jesus Jews” since they considered their way of life to be “foreign” and “too restrictive”.

And so just like many “politicians” do today, Constantine knew he must fully maintain these “sentiments” by law in order to maintain complete and utter control over the entire Roman Empire populace. So what better way for him to do that, than to create a religion that “did away with biblical precepts” and that had “equal rights for ALL”? Sound familiar?

When Constantine (with the help of “Catholic bishops”) CHANGED the Sabbath day from the 7th-day biblically-mandated Saturday Sabbath to Sun-day (venerable worship day of the Sun), he not only turned “Christianity” into a LIE but he ALSO proved which god he worshiped (and it was NOT the God of the bible!!!!!!!)

Sadly, one of the most devastating IMPACTS this had was on the “Jewish people” THEMSELVES (as a whole)! Instead of being spiritually seen “as one” with the “believing” Gentiles (meaning, those Gentiles that believed in AND obeyed Yeshua/Jesus Christ) like they SHOULD’VE BEEN, they were then “set apart” for what would then become their own spiritual demise! Because at THAT point in time, you then had many “Orthodox Jews” who thought that NO Jews need Jesus in order to be saved” and unfortunately, this viewpoint spread like CANCER to the non-Jewish world as well!

BEFORE Yeshua (the BIBLICAL Jesus) physically arrived on the Earth, ONLY the Hebrews were “God’s chosen people”. But DURING and AFTER the time that Yeshua (the BIBLICAL Jesus) physically arrived on Earth, ANY person (rather Hebrew or not) received the right to become “a child of God”/PART of “God’s chosen people”. Because whoever DENIES Yeshua is THE Messiah (rather Jewish or not) is essentially calling God (the same one that saved Daniel in the Lions Den, brought the Hebrews out of Egypt, appeared to Moses in a burning bush and parted the Red Sea, etc.) a LIAR! Please remember that Yeshua is the same yesterday, today and evermore! He hails from EVERLASTING! 

Jerusalem (both Earthly Jerusalem AND Heavenly Jerusalem) is God’s foothold. The bible says so. In fact, even after all this time, the physical city of Jerusalem (miraculously) still stands! However, many “Arabs” (modern-day physical and/or spiritual descendants of Ishmael) now live in Jerusalem, too! To ME, that’s very prophetic…..

In my opinion, that means that God is reigning “judgement” upon “Earthly Jerusalem” for the following two reasons: A) for becoming so “worldly” and “politically correct” and B) for the Jews having turned their back on their one and only true Messiah (which is Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty)…..

The fact that “Earthly Jerusalem” now has many Israel-hating “foreigners” living among them (and has had so for SEVERAL years now) *and* that it’s also now a “political hotbed” for the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD (in addition to all the “pro-sodomite/LGBT celebrations” in Tel Aviv/etc……….SPEAKS VOLUMES! (That’s bible prophecy right there in the making, folks!) 

Also, there’s NO more need for an “Earthly Temple” anymore, as THE VEIL TO THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN AT THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS! Jesus Christ himself even says in John 5:46 “For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.”  

And the bible also says Jesus/Almighty God will create a NEW heavens and a NEW EARTH! In fact, the city that Almighty God will build and bring down from heaven will be called “NEW JERUSALEM”. Why is that, do you think? Because clearly, if God’s foothold on the city of Jerusalem were only physical, there would be no need for him to build a “NEW JERUSALEM”, now, would there? That’s how we know that Almighty God’s hold on Earthly Jerusalem is both physical AND spiritual……

However, ironically enough, even WITH the foreign enemy living among them, Israel is STILL prosperous! That to ME would suggest that Jesus still loves the Jews and desperately wants them to come back to Him before it’s too late and their fate is sealed for all eternity! 

Our commission in these last days is to NOT ONLY bring the gospel to non-believers and those of other religions (in general) but to SPECIFICALLY bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Jews themselves! Because remember that there is NO SALVATION outside of Jesus Christ! NONE! Over 330+ Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament were FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in the New Testament, biblically PROVING that Jesus Christ IS the Messiah!

Also: think about all the Jews out there today that do horrible, abominable things, like own porno companies or abortion clinics or movie studios, etc for instance! Or Jews that were born Jews but deny the faith of Jesus? Are they all now “Saved” JUST BECAUSE they were “born Jewish”? HA! Or perhaps you have a Jew that DOES follow the Torah to the letter (and while I personally commend that Jew/those Jews for doing so – especially in today’s world where things have become so evil), that STILL won’t “Save Them” from God’s Eternal Wrath since THE VEIL OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN at the crucifixion of Jesus!

“He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me” – Luke 10:16 [Those that hate Yeshua/Jesus HATE God Almighty since God Almighty is the one that SENT Yeshua/Jesus to Earth to be born of a virgin birth!

“Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust” – John 5:45 [Moses will directly or co-directly accuse Jews who rejected Jesus to Almighty God, since THE VEIL TO THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN AT THE PRECISE MOMENT OF JESUS’S DEATH ON THE CROSS!

“I and my Father are one” – John 10:30 [Yeshua/Jesus IS the Messiah!!!!!! He is God Almighty in the flesh! He and the Heavenly Father/God Almighty ARE ONE!

Not to mention that most of the Jewish genealogical records were carried away and BURNED! Why? Because it was God’s sign to mankind that the genealogical records NO LONGER APPLIED, since THE MESSIAH (Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty) HAD ALREADY ARRIVED ON EARTH! 

[However, Yeshua/Jesus’s genealogy has been preserved to a T! Why is that, do you think? Answer: His genealogy is the ONLY spiritual/physical genealogy that MATTERS!]   

So, people: IF you see, know or hear of a Jewish person, PREACH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST & SALVATION TO THEM! The bible says that during the End Times, 144,000 Jews will be sealed in the name of God! Translation? DURING these here End Times, many Jews will come to know and realize that Jesus Christ WAS their Messiah and is the ONLY way to Salvation! In fact, many Jews today are ALREADY starting to wake up to this fact! They are known today as “Messianic Jews”.

And for those “Christians” who defied Constantine by KEEPING the biblically-mandated “Jewish precepts” of the gospel such as the BIBLICAL FEASTS and the biblically-mandated 7th day Sabbath? They became known as “Messianic Jews” or “the Lord’s people”. So no, not ALL Jews refused to recognize Jesus as their Messiah. Some were wise enough back then to realize Jesus was the Messiah. But still. Many more Jews will wisen up TODAY and realize that Jesus Christ IS the Messiah!

But folks, be forewarned: amidst world chaous, a “one-world-government-leader” will SOON emerge. He will appear to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. He might even possibly call himself “Jesus” or “Messiah”. But he will NOT be the “Jesus Christ of the bible”. He will be an IMPOSTER! He is the BIBLICAL ANTICHRIST! He will pretend to come in the name of peace and FOOL MANY! And he will eventually require ALL flesh (both young and old, rich and poor, free and bond) to take a mark on their right hand or their forehead in order to be able to buy or sell. But Almighty God warns that WHOEVER takes this “mark” will end up in the eternal LAKE OF FIRE:

“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” – Revelation 14:11

“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” – Revelation 20:15

Sadly, many “Jews” (and non-Jews, alike) will see the soon-coming one-world-government-leader (the Antichrist) AS their “Messiah” and will GLADLY take his “mark” to buy and sell, before later realizing that NOT ONLY is he not THE BIBLICAL MESSIAH but is in fact, no “Messiah” at all but came from the PITS OF HELL! However, by then, it’ll be too late for them, for ONCE they take “the mark”, their fate is SEALED for ALL ETERNITY!

In fact, Messiah Jesus warned us in Matthew 7: 13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”. 

Translation? VERY FEW will make it into the gates of “heavenly Jerusalem”, someday. VERY. FEW. Yet, MANY billions of people will end up in the LAKE OF FIRE, someday. Why? Because Almighty God sent them there? Answer: No. Because these people will have ended up sending THEMSELVES there…..by REJECTING Jesus Christ as the one and only true Messiah, by ALLOWING themselves to be deceived by the one world government leader, and by ALLOWING themselves to get “THE MARK” (in order to buy or sell), the mark that Almighty God warned them in the bible NOT to get!

Therefore, in conclusion, ALL souls (INCLUDING Jewish ones) need Jesus Christ in order to be “Saved”! For apart from Jesus Christ, there IS no Eternal Salvation!

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – Acts 4:12

And for those of you Jewish people or skeptics that have any doubt about Jesus being the one and ONLY true Messiah, PLEASE PLEASE check out my page entitled “Long List of 333+ Messianic Prophecies from Old Testament FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in New Testament”. 

Thanks and have a wonderful evening! 😉 

“I pray that all Jewish AND non-Jewish souls that read this become saved in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ. May He speak to you in your dreams, may He give you visions of Him and HIS words in the bible, may He take the spiritual blinders off your eyes and SET YOU FREE from the demonic LIES of this world and may He also grant your soul a refreshening that only He himself can provide! May He bless & keep you for all eternity! Amen”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The “REAL WAR” on Christ: it’s NOT Christmas!!!!!

After doing some MAJOR research and coming to know what the TRUE ORIGINS of “Christmas” are, I am just ASTOUNDED at the number of misguided Christians out there who still think:

A). there’s a “war on Christmas”

B). that the “war on Christmas” IS a WAR ON CHRIST!

C). that “Christ” needs to be put back INTO the word “Christmas”!

(And had I not done my proper research into the matter, I myself would sadly still BE one of those poor, misguided folks!)

The truth is, “Christmas” is a purely CATHOLIC/PAGAN INSTITUTION. The word “Christmas” comes from the words “Christ MASS”. And quite incidentally, the Roman Catholic Church created *modern-day Christianity* OUT of PAGANISM! The Christmas festival is actually based off of the Pagan Festival called “Saturnalia”. And it was during the festival of “Saturnalia” that grostesque things were done to Biblical-roots Christians

https://thetruthandlight.wordpress.com/2008/12/25/saturnalia-the-real-roots-of-christmas/

==============================================

According to the following page:

http://www.simpletoremember.com/vitals/Christmas_TheRealStory.htm

How Did Christmas Come to Be Celebrated on December 25?

  1. Roman pagans first introduced the holiday of Saturnalia, a week long period of lawlessness celebrated between December 17-25.  During this period, Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the weeklong celebration.  The festival began when Roman authorities chose “an enemy of the Roman people” to represent the “Lord of Misrule.”  Each Roman community selected a victim whom they forced to indulge in food and other physical pleasures throughout the week.  At the festival’s conclusion, December 25th, Roman authorities believed they were destroying the forces of darkness by brutally murdering this innocent man or woman.
  2. The ancient Greek writer poet and historian Lucian (in his dialogue entitled Saturnalia) describes the festival’s observance in his time.  In addition to human sacrifice, he mentions these customs: widespread intoxication; going from house to house while singing naked; rape and other sexual license; and consuming human-shaped biscuits (still produced in some English and most German bakeries during the Christmas season).
  3. In the 4th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it.  Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians.[2]
  4. The problem was that there was nothing intrinsically Christian about Saturnalia. To remedy this, these Christian leaders named Saturnalia’s concluding day, December 25th, to be Jesus’ birthday.
  5. Christians had little success, however, refining the practices of Saturnalia.  As Stephen Nissenbaum, professor history at the University of Massachussetts, Amherst, writes, “In return for ensuring massive observance of the anniversary of the Savior’s birth by assigning it to this resonant date, the Church for its part tacitly agreed to allow the holiday to be celebrated more or less the way it had always been.”  The earliest Christmas holidays were celebrated by drinking, sexual indulgence, singing naked in the streets (a precursor of modern caroling), etc.
  6. The Reverend Increase Mather of Boston observed in 1687 that “the early Christians who  first observed the Nativity on December 25 did not do so thinking that Christ was born in that Month, but because the Heathens’ Saturnalia was at that time kept in Rome, and they were willing to have those Pagan Holidays metamorphosed into Christian ones.”[3] Because of its known pagan origin, Christmas was banned by the Puritans and its observance was illegal in Massachusetts between 1659 and 1681.[4]  However, Christmas was and still is celebrated by most Christians.
  7. Some of the most depraved customs of the Saturnalia carnival were intentionally revived by the Catholic Church in 1466 when Pope Paul II, for the amusement of his Roman citizens, forced Jews to race naked through the streets of the city.  An eyewitness account reports, “Before they were to run, the Jews were richly fed, so as to make the race more difficult for them and at the same time more amusing for spectators.  They ran… amid Rome’s taunting shrieks and peals of laughter, while the Holy Father stood upon a richly ornamented balcony and laughed heartily.”[5]
  8. As part of the Saturnalia carnival throughout the 18th and 19th centuries CE, rabbis of the ghetto in Rome were forced to wear clownish outfits and march through the city streets to the jeers of the crowd, pelted by a variety of projectiles. When the Jewish community of Rome sent a petition in 1836 to Pope Gregory XVI begging him to stop the annual Saturnalia abuse of the Jewish community, he responded, “It is not opportune to make any innovation.”[6] On December 25, 1881, Christian leaders whipped the Polish masses into Antisemitic frenzies that led to riots across the country.  In Warsaw 12 Jews were brutally murdered, huge numbers maimed, and many Jewish women were raped.  Two million rubles worth of property was destroyed.

III.     The Origins of Christmas Customs

  1. The Origin of Christmas Tree
    Just as early Christians recruited Roman pagans by associating Christmas with the Saturnalia, so too worshippers of the Asheira cult and its offshoots were recruited by the Church sanctioning “Christmas Trees”.[7] Pagans had long worshipped trees in the forest, or brought them into their homes and decorated them, and this observance was adopted and painted with a Christian veneer by the Church.
  2. The Origin of Mistletoe
    Norse mythology recounts how the god Balder was killed using a mistletoe arrow by his rival god Hoder while fighting for the female Nanna.  Druid rituals use mistletoe to poison their human sacrificial victim.[8] The Christian custom of “kissing under the mistletoe” is a later synthesis of the sexual license of Saturnalia with the Druidic sacrificial cult.[9]
  3. The Origin of Christmas Presents
    In pre-Christian Rome, the emperors compelled their most despised citizens to bring offerings and gifts during the Saturnalia (in December) and Kalends (in January).  Later, this ritual expanded to include gift-giving among the general populace.  The Catholic Church gave this custom a Christian flavor by re-rooting it in the supposed gift-giving of Saint Nicholas (see below).[10]
  4. The Origin of Santa Claus
  5. Nicholas was born in Parara, Turkey in 270 CE and later became Bishop of Myra.  He died in 345 CE on December 6th.  He was only named a saint in the 19th century.
  6. Nicholas was among the most senior bishops who convened the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE and created the New Testament.  The text they produced portrayed Jews as “the children of the devil”[11] who sentenced Jesus to death.
  7. In 1087, a group of sailors who idolized Nicholas moved his bones from Turkey to a sanctuary in Bari, Italy.  There Nicholas supplanted a female boon-giving deity called The Grandmother, or Pasqua Epiphania, who used to fill the children’s stockings with her gifts.  The Grandmother was ousted from her shrine at Bari, which became the center of the Nicholas cult.  Members of this group gave each other gifts during a pageant they conducted annually on the anniversary of Nicholas’ death, December 6.
  8. The Nicholas cult spread north until it was adopted by German and Celtic pagans.  These groups worshipped a pantheon led by Woden –their chief god and the father of Thor, Balder, and Tiw.  Woden had a long, white beard and rode a horse through the heavens one evening each Autumn.  When Nicholas merged with Woden, he shed his Mediterranean appearance, grew a beard, mounted a flying horse, rescheduled his flight for December, and donned heavy winter clothing.
  9. In a bid for pagan adherents in Northern Europe, the Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas cult and taught that he did (and they should) distribute gifts on December 25th instead of December 6th.
  10. In 1809, the novelist Washington Irving (most famous his The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle) wrote a satire of Dutch culture entitled Knickerbocker History.  The satire refers several times to the white bearded, flying-horse riding Saint Nicholas using his Dutch name, Santa Claus.
  11. Dr. Clement Moore, a professor at Union Seminary, read Knickerbocker History, and in 1822 he published a poem based on the character Santa Claus: “Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.  The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in the hope that Saint Nicholas soon would be there…”  Moore innovated by portraying a Santa with eight reindeer who descended through chimneys.
  12. The Bavarian illustrator Thomas Nast almost completed the modern picture of Santa Claus.  From 1862 through 1886, based on Moore’s poem, Nast drew more than 2,200 cartoon images of Santa for Harper’s Weekly.  Before Nast, Saint Nicholas had been pictured as everything from a stern looking bishop to a gnome-like figure in a frock.  Nast also gave Santa a home at the North Pole, his workshop filled with elves, and his list of the good and bad children of the world.  All Santa was missing was his red outfit.
  13. In 1931, the Coca Cola Corporation contracted the Swedish commercial artist Haddon Sundblom to create a coke-drinking Santa.  Sundblom modeled his Santa on his friend Lou Prentice, chosen for his cheerful, chubby face.  The corporation insisted that Santa’s fur-trimmed suit be bright, Coca Cola red.  And Santa was born – a blend of Christian crusader, pagan god, and commercial idol.

 

  1. The Christmas Challenge
  • Christmas has always been a holiday celebrated carelessly.  For millennia, pagans, Christians, and even Jews have been swept away in the season’s festivities, and very few people ever pause to consider the celebration’s intrinsic meaning, history, or origins.
  • Christmas celebrates the birth of the Christian god who came to rescue mankind from the “curse of the Torah.”  It is a 24-hour declaration that Judaism is no longer valid.
  • Christmas is a lie.  There is no Christian church with a tradition that Jesus was really born on December 25th.
  • December 25 is a day on which “BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS” have been shamed, tortured, and murdered.
  • Many of the most popular Christmas customs – including Christmas trees, mistletoe, Christmas presents, and Santa Claus – are modern incarnations of the most depraved pagan rituals ever practiced on earth.

Many who are excitedly preparing for their Christmas celebrations would prefer not knowing about the holiday’s real significance.  If they do know the history, they often object that their celebration has nothing to do with the holiday’s monstrous history and meaning.  “We are just having fun.”

Imagine that between 1933-45, the Nazi regime celebrated Adolf Hitler’s birthday – April 20 – as a holiday.  Imagine that they named the day, “Hitlerday,” and observed the day with feasting, drunkenness, gift-giving, and various pagan practices.  Imagine that on that day, biblical-roots Christians were historically subject to perverse tortures and abuse, and that this continued for centuries.

Now, imagine that your great-great-great-grandchildren were about to celebrate Hitlerday.  April 20th arrived. They had long forgotten about Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen.  They had never heard of gas chambers or death marches.  They had purchased champagne and caviar, and were about to begin the party, when someone reminded them of the day’s real history and their ancestors’ agony.  Imagine that they initially objected, “We aren’t celebrating the Holocaust; we’re just having a little Hitlerday party.”  If you could travel forward in time and meet them; if you could say a few words to them, what would you advise them to do on Hitlerday?

On December 25, 1941, Julius Streicher, one of the most vicious of Hitler’s assistants, celebrated Christmas by penning the following editorial in his rabidly Antisemitic newspaper, Der Stuermer:

If one really wants to put an end to the continued prospering of this curse from heaven that is the Jewish blood, there is only one way to do it: to eradicate this people, this Satan’s son, root and branch.

It was an appropriate thought for the day.  This Christmas, how will we celebrate?

===================================================

Truth be told, the REAL WAR on Jesus Christ/Christ began around 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea. That is when the TRUE, BIBLICALLY-MANDATED 7TH DAY SABBATH, was CHANGED from Saturday to SUN-DAY, venerable worship day of the SUN!

And then, at the 365A.D. Council of Laodicea, things ONLY got worse! That is when it was FORBIDDEN to rest on the TRUE Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) and when “Christians” and “Jews” were FORCED BY LAW to WORK on the Sabbath and REST on Sun-Day, venerable worship day of the Sun (practices CLEARLY forbidden by the bible!)

But no, it doesn’t even stop THERE! It gets EVEN worse! It was also FORBIDDEN for Christians and Jews living in the Roman Empire at that time to eat UNLEAVENED BREAD/fast/pray (a biblical command) and to celebrate the TRUE “Holy Days” of the Lord, including the following:

  • Passover

  • Feast of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast of Tabernacles

  • Day of Atonement

  • Feast of Trumpets

So quite honestly, the time between 325A.D. and 365A.D. is when the TRUE WAR on “Christ” (atleast in the modern day time) began! So don’t be fooled! The Roman Catholic Church is one of THE MOST evilest organizations in history! It pretty much turned all Christianity into a LIE! It took the Jewish religion and turned it INTO *ANCIENT BABYLONIAN SUN WORSHIP, REPACKAGED*! Don’t believe me? DO THE RESEARCH AND SEE FOR YOURSELVES BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!!!!!!!!!

Constantine: Satan’s Homeboy [CHURCH BUILDINGS ARE UNBIBLICAL!!!!!!]

Many well-meaning “Christians” today dress up in their Sunday-best, file into church every Sunday morning, sit down at the pews trying ever-so-hard to look dignified, and then stare straight ahead to “listen to” the choir and/or the priest/pastor.  And every so often in church, they take part of the “communion table”, answer an “altar call”, “put money into the offering plate”, etc.

And they feel perfectly comfortable while doing so, because hey, it’s “tradition”, right?

Now think about that word for awhile: tradition. Let it sink in. Meditate on it for awhile. The Miriam-Webster dictionary defines “tradition” as: “a way of thinking, behaving, or doing something that has been used by the people in a particular group, family, society, etc., for a long time; Cultural continuity in social attitudes, customs, and institutions, etc.”

Okay, now lets turn to the bible to see what Jesus Christ Almighty had to say about the word tradition:

And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition – Mark 7:9

But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?“- Mark 15:3

Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Mark 15:6b-9

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” – Luke 6:46

So in other words, ALL modern-day church buildings (ALL OF THEM, NO EXCEPTIONS) have “transgressed the law of God” to follow man’s OWN TRADITION!!! Because the bible actually CONDEMNS “church buildings”.

Please remember that in Matthew 27:51 “And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent”. Translation? THE TEMPLE WAS NO LONGER NEEDED AS JESUS CHRIST *HIMSELF* BECAME THE TEMPLE, ALONG WITH THE *BODY OF BELIEVERS*!

So BECAUSE of this, 1st century Christians were smart and HAD no “buildings” to meet in but rather, met in private homes of about the small size of 5-35 people or so. And several “house gatherings” were had throughout the city of Jerusalem. But they did NOT consider themselves “separate groups/denominations” like you see today. Rather, they were ONE group, ONE believing body. EVERY single person was treated equally and given the “ability” to “minister” onto all the others. That way, they each brought their OWN insights from the Lord TO the meeting and EVERYONE maintained eye contact with one another and benefited. They were all equal in the eyes of Jesus Christ Almighty and Jesus Christ Almighty HIMSELF was the “head of the church, the *chief cornerstone* and the head of the *gathering*!

{And please note: Many people think that Constantine made it so that “Christians” weren’t persecuted anymore, PERIOD. But that’s just simple not true, folks! What Constantine did — along with the help of “Catholic bishops” — is PERSECUTE the *TRUE CHRISTIANS* (those who held to the BIBLICAL “Jewish precepts” of their religion! So YES……..TRUE/BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS were STILL persecuted under the “rule” of Constantine, unfortunately……}

However, the start of the “church building” (where the “priest/pastor” was considered ABOVE the “laity” and where the “laity” were SILENCED and NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK, etc.) began with Constantine. Sadly, many Christians and historians today tout Constantine as the “great hero” and “spreader of Christianity all throughout the Roman Empire” but what they DON’T realize is THIS: the TYPE of “Christianity” that Constantine “spread all throughout the Roman Empire” was a FALSE RELIGIOUS SYSTEM based on PAGAN PRECEPTS!

The truth is, Constantine no doubt “admired” many of the “Pagan temples” he saw around the Roman Empire and came up with the MORTAL IDEA that “hey, Christians should have THEIR own building to worship in, as well”, even going so far as to MODEL these “basilicas” AFTER the “Pagan temples” of his day. He also saw Jesus AS the Sun god, Helios, and inserted sun god symbols all throughout the basilicas and even went so far (during the 325AD or so Council of Nicea) to CHANGE GOD’S HOLY, SANCTIFIED 7TH DAY SABBATH to SUN-DAY (venerable worship day of the SUN), so he could CONTINUE to worship the “sun god, Helios” in the IMAGE of Jesus Christ! (BLASHPHEMY!!!!)

And not only THAT, but it gets much worse, historical wise. At the 365AD Council of Laodicea, it even BECAME A CRIME to worship on the Lord’s TRUE *biblically-mandated* 7th-Day Sabbath and ALSO to celebrate in the Lord’s (once again) *biblically-mandated* 7 Annual Feasts (such as Passover, Pentecost, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) In addition to fasting, praying or eating of “unleavened bread”. On the other hand, “Christians/Jews” of that that time were COMMANDED by Constantine/Catholic bishop/other Roman imperial leaders to eat UNCLEAN FOODS (such as pork), to worship on PAGAN holidays (such as Christmas, Easter, etc.) and to WORK on the 7th Day Sabbath and REST on Sun-Day, which was all CLEARLY CONDEMNED IN THE BIBLE!

And IF a Christian/Jewish person refused to comply with Constantine’s demands, they were PUNISHED (most times, imprisoned/executed). So tell me. Is Constantine “such a great hero” in your mind, NOW? HE, along with the Catholic Church, PERSECUTED THE LORD’S TRUE PEOPLE!

And one of the REASONS Constantine was so successful to get people AWAY from true biblical, Jewish-roots Christianity is because Anti-Jewish sentiment was HIGH at that time. Why? Because the “Christians” blamed the JEWS for the execution of Jesus Christ! So they saw all Jews as “evil” and wanted to have nothing to do with “all things Jewish”. Constantine, in retrospect, took high advantage of this and decided that the Lord’s commands in the bible were “Jewish only” and NO LONGER APPLIED TO THE LORD’S PEOPLE (that is, to say, “Christians”).

However, a few “Christians” out there were wise enough to defy the attack on the Lord’s people and the Lord’s commandments and REFUSED to obey Constantine and/or the Roman Catholic Church (and many payed with their very own LIVES for it!) Today, those people are known as Jewish-roots Christians, Messianic Christians, Jewish Christians, Christian Jews, or Judeo-Christians, respectively.

Truth be told, Constantine, like the Roman Catholic Church, HATED the real, true, biblical Jesus Christ, and the Lord’s law and the Lord’s people. Almost as much as Hitler did, if not more so!

Basically, the made the “Christianity” of today nothing more than BABYLONIAN/PAGAN SUN WORSHIP, REPACKAGED.

So people: I beg of you! GET OUT OF THE CHURCHES AND THE “CHURCH SYSTEM” WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Your eternal salvation depends on it, MARK MY WORDS!!!!!

And remember that, during the time of the White Throne Judgement, Jesus Christ is going to say to/about MANY, MANY, MANY people in Matthew 7:21-13:

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heavenMany will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”

Plus remember that Matthew 7:21 is a FOLLOW-UP to Luke 6:46 which states: “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”

[Now, is that to say that a true body of believers/assembly in Christ CAN’T meet in a church building every week? No. Not necessarily…….It just means that they can’t CALL the “church building” the “house of God”, and they also can’t SAY they are “going TO church” (if they want to be TRULY biblically accurate) for each believer in Christ IS “the church”.

Also as well: if EACH person gets to say their own individual input into what the Lord has taught them that week, that’s considered a biblical model of worship. Some might say that sermons are okay because “each person” gets to speak individually during bible study.

But “sermons” (as a whole) are still biblically inaccurate since a) it sets the “laity” above the churchgoers, and the bible says ALL believers are considered “equal”, in importance and are called “ministers unto God/Jesus Christ” and b) the institutionalized church service is a solemn assembly when the bible says “church gatherings” are supposed to be a JOYOUS assembly, REJOICING in Jesus Christ’s resurrection & ascension, while ALSO talking about the important of repentance of sins! and c) “the church”, that is, the body of believers in Christ — as a whole — are supposed to go out INTO the world to preach the gospel and not “hide” behind 4 walls every week!]

If you’ve EVER sat through a church service and wondered why it is you don’t seem to be growing at all in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ or why you feel like you’re just going through the motions, etc., then the following book is for YOU!

As Christians, we can either CONTINUE with “tradition” as is and be led on the path to eternal darkness, keep going to church every SUN-DAY and following “Pagan traditions of men”, thus taking the “blue pill”.

OR……..we (as Christians) can choose to be enlightened, shown what the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ is, have a TRUE life-changing spiritual relationship with him, and DEFY all things Pagan, and read (and APPLY) the following 2 books……..thus taking the “red pill” [realizing the “reality” of modern-day church traditions].

[Note: The “blue pill” and “red pill” are a reference to the movie called “The Matrix”. In the movie, the character Neo is more or less told: “take the blue pill and you can go back to your life, believing whatever you want to believe, and follow in your own tradition – but take the red pill, and you will see just how far down the rabbit hole [of reality] goes”].

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY and it’s SEQUEL…. PAGAN CHRISTIANITY2

The Path To Darkness: WIDE IS THE GATE

There is SO much wrong going on in the world today that it’s just mind-boggling……BEYOND mind-boggling, actually……

But what REALLY gets me the most is modern-day Christianity…….NOT ONLY are there SEVERAL apostate churches popping up all over the U.S. and around the world, but even HUNDREDS of the ones who call themselves “non-apostate churches” are actually in and of themselves apostate (ironic, isn’t it?)

“Really? Which ones?”, you may ask. Well, let me explain, here.

LONG BEFORE the MODERN day apostasy (i.e. Ecumenicalism — modern-day Churches aligning themselves with the Roman Catholic Church in Rome — and/or the Emergent Movement — bringing “New Age” themes into the Christian church, such as meditation, labyrinths, etc.), there was ALREADY an apostasy going on within the “Christian church”, as it were. And it started around the time of Constantine. Many people (specifically, Catholics and many Christian people today) want to PRAISE Constantine, thinking he did so much to ADVANCE CHRISTIANITY within the Roman Empire and perhaps the world, even.

But they are sadly overlooking ONE thing: In wanting to “appease” the Pagans within the Roman Empire who worshiped the Sun on SUN-DAY, he CHANGED the Sabbath day from the BIBLICALLY-MANDATED SATURDAY (7th day of the week) to SUN-DAY (the first day of the week!)

“Yeah, so what! What’s the big deal?”, you may be asking or saying to yourself. Well, I’ll TELL YOU what the “big deal” is! You can NOT change the holy, divine law of God and still call yourself “Christian”, that’s what!

Anyways, the Catholic Church followed suit in further promoting SUN-DAY as the Sabbath, instead of the BIBLICALLY-MANDATED SATURDAY (7th day of the week). Also please remember that around the time of Constantine in the Roman Empire, anti-Jewish sentiments were high among Gentile Christians, who accused the Jews of crucifying Jesus. Therefore, those ancient Christians didn’t want anything to DO with Jews or what they considered to be “Jewish law”. That’s why they HAPPILY submitted to the SUN-DAY Sabbath, instead of the biblically-mandated Saturday (7th day) one!

However, when Constantine changed the Sabbath from Saturday TO Sunday, he sadly turned Christianity into a LIE [and only managed to further advance an APOSTATE FORM of Christianity, nothing  more]. That’s almost like the Jews of Moses’s time worshiping the golden calf while still believing in their hearts that they were somehow doing a “true service” to God! You can NOT put a “Christian stamp” on something that’s PAGAN in nature or origin (such as worship of the Sun day) and then expect God to approve of it, for God CAN NOT and WILL NOT approve of such blasphemies!

Okay, now fast forward to the modern times. The Catholic Church has observed a SUN-DAY Sabbath for YEARS and pretty much ALL OTHER CHRISTIAN CHURCHES (save for a very small few) have followed suit!

Have you ever wondered about WHY Jesus was the JEWISH MESSIAH, yet, most modern-day churches/Christians don’t give a DARN about the Old Testament or even do so much as care to read it? Or have you ever wondered WHY the modern-day church doesn’t celebrate the 7 annual feasts of the Lord and writes them off as “Jewish holidays, ONLY”? Or have you ever wondered why the church no longer celebrates the “7th Day-biblically-mandated Sabbath” but instead celebrates the Sabbath on the FIRST day of the week (Sun-day)?

Ironically enough, many modern-day churches/Christians completely and totally REJECT Jesus’s “Jewishness”.

And sadly, that’s the one aspect of Jesus Christ that simply can NOT be denied if one is to accept the FULL 100% TRUTH of God!

Modern-day Christians can NOT deny the “Jewishness” of Jesus since it’s written ALL OVER THE SCRIPTURES, OLD **AND** NEW TESTAMENTS, not to mention that over 360+ Messianic Prophecies about the coming Jewish Messiah in the Old Testament were FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in the New Testament!

Sadly, many modern-day Christians today have this unbridled spiritual/emotional animosity for the Jews. But ironically, that is exactly what Satan wants because remember that Satan’s goal is to take people AWAY from the Word of God and to divide and conquer among the Lord’s people (Gentile and Jew, alike!) And the people that decide to follow the Jewish roots of Christianity, believing it to be the Lord’s 100% truth, are not only few and far between but are facing an UPHILL BATTLE, as far as acceptance goes. But ya know what? Jesus had THIS to say in John 15:18-27 :

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me;

If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning”

But anyways, the point I was wanting to make is that modern-day Christianity has STRAYED from its Jewish roots and if there’s to be any REAL biblical truth behind it, it needs to GO BACK to its Jewish roots, in form, in prayers, in reading and in practice!

“But HOW?”, you may ask. Answer: By reading and following the Old AND New Testaments!

“But wait a minute!”, you may think. “Weren’t the Old Testament laws done away by Jesus in the New Testament?”

Answer: No, NOT AT ALL! In fact, they were EXPANDED ON, and even ADDED ONTO in the New Testament!

Don’t believe me? Check out Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount (Matthew chapter 5-7). Not only did he reference the 10 commandments from Moses in the Old Testament but he EXPANDED on them.

And concerning the Old Testament law(s), he had THIS to say:

Think NOT that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” [Matthew 5:17-18]

The new heaven and new Earth don’t happen until Revelation 21:1 [book of Revelation, chapter 21, verse 1] in the bible. And from my understanding, at the start of Revelation chapter 22, heaven and earth have already passed and a new heaven and new Earth has been created. The law was done away with at the beginning of chapter 21 of Revelation DURING the creation of the new heaven and new Earth and by the start of Revelation chapter 22, there is no longer any “law” because “law” is simply not needed anymore, for there is NO MORE CHAOS, DISORDER AND DESTRUCTION, at this very point in time, for there is only PEACE, LOVE, SERVITUDE TO GOD/JESUS CHRIST AND PERFECT HARMONY. In other words, Paradise Eternal.

And ya want to know WHY the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts aren’t JUST “Jewish holidays” for the Jews to observe, only? Jesus AND his apostles AND their followers celebrated all 7 of the Lord’s Annual Feasts, including 2 additional “minor” Jewish feasts and ESPECIALLY the Saturday (Jewish) Sabbath. And the book of Revelation in the New Testament references the people of the Lord partaking in THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES (one of the Lord’s required/ordained 7 annual feasts talked about in the OLD TESTAMENT!) So what does THAT tell you, folks? Yup. You guessed it. The Lord’s 7 annual feasts are STILL required for us to celebrate today! And not only that, but celebrating the feasts of the Lord that Jesus fulfilled can actually help bring one CLOSER to Jesus Christ, not farther away from him!

You may’ve gone to a Sunday-worshiping church your whole life and been led to believe by your pastor that the “Jewish days” were no longer required of us, as Christians and/or that it was “good” and “okay” to celebrate Christmas and Easter (Pagan originated holidays) by putting a “Christian stamp” on it or might’ve even been led to believe by “popular teachings” that Christians somehow replace Jews as God’s Chosen People. But my friends……you’ve been deceived. Not only by your church and your pastor but by the world. Remember that Satan is  VERY ANGRY and knows his time on Earth is short and he’s out to deceive as MANY PEOPLE AS HE CAN, while he still gots time. He gots the Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witness, Christian “cults” and all those who hate and deny Jesus, in his pocket. He also gots the Satanists/Wiccans/Pagans/New Agers, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, Shintoists, Kabbalists, Scientologists, Agnostics, Sunday-sabbath-worshiping Christians, etc. in his pocket.

But what Satan DOESN’T have in his pocket are true, bible-believing Christians who adhere to/follow the bible, front to back, Old Testament to New Testament, in life, in prayer, in reading and in practice. And it’s THOSE souls who shall inherit Eternal Paradise with Jesus Christ someday and of whom Satan hates the absolute most!

Plus let us ALSO remember what Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it

I pray that all that read this will open up their eyes to the GREAT DECEPTION that happened in the Christian church under Constantine long ago and that they will not only have an interest in the Jewish roots of Christianity but that they will search their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to discover the 100% truth of God, not just the “partial truth” spoken about in most modern-day Christian churches today! I also want to say a prayer for Israel and for all those who deny or mock Jesus Christ. May they open up their minds, hearts and spirits to the Lord’s full 100% spiritual truth before it’s too late. Amen.
