IMPORTANT: The Torah Still Applies!!! (Part ONE)

Many people TODAY – both Christian AND non-Christian alike – take such a “liberal” view when it comes to God’s law in the Old Testament! They try telling themselves that they no longer have to follow the 10 commandments since “Jesus already payed for the law on the cross” and that The Old Testament “was for the Jews, ONLY!” But what does Jesus HIMSELF teach on the matter? Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

Many people don’t know this (and even I MYSELF didn’t know this until a couple years ago) but Jesus actually made SEVERAL appearances in the OLD TESTAMENT as a pre-incarnate. He was ALL THE FOLLOWING:

  • The “tree of life” in the Garden of Eden
  • The “pillar of cloud” by day and the “pillar of fire” by night that led Moses & the Israelites out of Egypt
  • The “mighty wind” that parted the Red Sea
  • The “burning bush not consumed” that spoke with Moses
  • The “foreign visitor” that talked to Abraham outside his tent as well as the “King of Salem” that BLESSED Abraham
  • The one that “fought with Jacob” all throughout the night
  • The “Son of Man” in the fiery furnace of Nebuchadnezzar with Daniel’s 3 friends
  • The one who “closed the mouths of lions” in the Lion’s Den with Daniel
  • The “angel of the Lord” besides Joshua at the battle of Jericho
  • The “Hand on the Wall” writing a decree of “Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin” against Belshazzar during Belshazzar’s “Babylonian-style” feast that used the golden & silver vessels from the TEMPLE in Jerusalem around 539B.C. or so?
  • Etc.?

Next, I’d like to examine SEVERAL bible passages concerning the ETERNAL NATURE OF JESUS/GOD:

Psalm 90:2

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

Isaiah 40:28

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.

Hebrews 13:18

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

1 Timothy 1:17

To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 8:58

Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.

2 Peter 3:8

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Titus 1:2

In hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised BEFORE the ages began.

1 Corinthians 2:7

But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.

Hebrews 1:8

But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Hebrews 1:2

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the world;

Okay, now that we’ve established that God/Jesus is ETERNAL, what about his WORDS? His LAW? Are THEY eternal? Once again, let us examine the evidence:

Matthew 24:35

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words SHALL NOT pass away

Matthew 5:17-18

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to FULFILL. 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

John 14:15

“If ye love me, keep my commandments

[*NOT TO MENTION THAT MATTHEW, CHAPTERS 5 TO 7, ALSO KNOWN AS THE “SERMON ON THE MOUNT” OR “THE OLIVIET DISCOURSE” EXPOUNDS ON THE 10 COMMANDMENTS AND TALKS ABOUT THEIR ORIGINAL *INTENT!*]

In Matthew 24:35, Jesus is telling us that his WORDS will LAST FOREVER! In Matthew 5:17-18, Jesus is telling us that he DID NOT come to destroy the law! And in John 14:15, Jesus is quoted as saying that IF we love him, to KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS! Therefore, that certainly doesn’t SEEM in any way, shape or form that Jesus wants us to NEGLECT the 10 commandments (or their original “intent”) under ANY circumstances!!!!! But rather, he seemed to want us to OBEY them!

Acts 10: 34-35Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him”.

Ephesians 6:9 “And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him”

Romans 2:11 “For there is no respect of persons with God”

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”

Acts 10:34, Ephesians 6:9, Romans 2:11, and Galatians 3:28 etc. all show us that Jesus is not a God of “partiality!” In other words, EVERYONE that believes in Him and OBEYS Him is EQUAL! And EVERYONE that sins against Him is JUDGED by Him for he is a FAIR and CONSISTENT God and a FAIR and CONSISTENT Judge! So in other words, there IS no such thing in Jesus’s eyes as “Jew” or “Gentile”, those are MAN-MADE CONSTRUCTS!!!!!!

So THAT being said, does it REALLY make any sense that God/Jesus would tell the Jewish people ONE thing/ONE set of commandments and then turn around and tell the Christians ANOTHER thing/ANOTHER set of commandments or NO commandments? OFCOURSE NOT! He’s NOT gonna tell one set of people: “No pork! It’s an abomination unto you!” and then turn around and tell ANOTHER set of people in the future that they COULD have pork….IT JUST DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!!!!! Think about it. If ONE set of people could ever say to Him: “Hey! That’s not fair! How come THEY get this but WE don’t?”, then he wouldn’t be God as he is a FAIR and CONSISTENT judge AND law-giver! 

God/Jesus did NOT go to the Jews of Old Testament and tell them that THEY had to follow the 7th day Sabbath, the 7-8 Biblical Holidays and the BIBLICAL dietary laws and then turn around during the times of the New Testament and say to the Christians that they were free to do, celebrate and eat WHATEVER THEY WANTED! For if he did, A) He wouldn’t be God, and B) That wouldn’t be fair! And we KNOW from the scriptures that Jesus is a FAIR and CONSISTENT God and a FAIR and CONSISTENT JUDGE! Because if he wasn’t, he’d be a liar and JESUS CAN NOT LIE!

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

Therefore, if Jesus Christ is ETERNAL, and DOES NOT CHANGE, and said HIMSELF that he DID NOT come to destroy the law, we can safely conclude that neither has Jesus’s LAW ever changed, either! In fact, the Sermon on the Mount (talked about in Matthew chapters 5-7 in the New Testament) seemed to ENHANCE the biblical law!

From my best spiritual understanding, we are saved by grace through faith PLUS obedience! (John 14:15, Matthew 7:21-23, etc.) For if you have obedience WITHOUT faith, the obedience is in vain! And if you have faith WITHOUT obedience onto the Lord’s commandments, that’s also vain, too! But if you have FAITH + OBEDIENCE, then you have been truly “born again” by the spirit of God/Jesus Christ through GRACE!

However, there are still those who claim that Jesus’s quote in Matthew 26:26-28 during the last supper about “making a new covenant” means that we no longer have to REPENT (that means to “make amends” for/pray for forgiveness OF) sin! But if we go to the King James version, we have the word TESTAMENT instead of COVENANT. Every version from NEW King James Version and on translates the word as COVENANT. And both the words have slightly different meanings! A “covenant” is like a “marriage contract” for instance. But a “testament” is something that lasts forever!

The Authorized King James Version and King James Version are the most closest bible translations, as it pertains to the Hebrew and the Greek. The NEW King James Version and on distort MANY, MANY words and phrases [http://www.av1611.org/nkjv.html] And in fact, THE APOCRYPHA wasn’t even taken out of the King James Bible until the late 1800’s or so! [https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Apocrypha-Books/]

[IMPORTANT: As a side note, I have found these GREAT publications of the KJV that also INCLUDE the Apocrypha:

https://www.amazon.com/Holy-Bible-James-Version-Apocrypha/dp/1480007889/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=KJV+bible+%2B+apocrypha&qid=1578787315&sr=8-3

https://www.amazon.com/Cepher-3rd-2018-Revision-C3R1/dp/0692998047/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+cepher&qid=1578787888&sr=8-1

Many Christians today seem to want to “pick the best bible version that WORKS FOR THEM, the “best church that WORKS for them“, the “best denomination that WORKS FOR THEM“. In other words, they seem to asking the question: “What works BEST for ME?”, instead of asking the fateful question: “What does GOD/Jesus WANT/EXPECT from ME and FOR me, as it pertains to obedience and worship?” In other words, they’re not asking the fateful question: “Where does GOD/JESUS want ME right now?” 

But regardless, even when a person is in/currently attending the INCORRECT church, reading the TAINTED bible version(s), and in the WRONG DENOMINATION(S), Jesus can still use that experience to TEACH a person (by means of the Holy Spirit) what IS and what IS NOT the true gospel (provided that person has a TRUE HEART to want to know what is of God and what is NOT of God!)

Note: Jesus did that with ME, with both the Catholic and Mormon churches in the past and he can most certainly do that with OTHERS, as well! In other words, he might sometimes purposely PLACE a person in the WRONG CHURCH in order to teach them what the TRUE CHURCH *is*, if that makes any sense? Let me elaborate. When I was a “baby Christian” (after I had started reading the gospel for myself ALL THE WAY THROUGH around the ages of 19-21 or so), I still had NO IDEA what alot of the gospel meant by the ages of 23 and on. So I was “easy fodder” for both the Catholic and Mormon churches to “deceive me” at that time.

However, AFTER I prayed to the Lord Jesus for SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING and SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT, I once again read the King James Bible straight through, cover to cover and then gained a “newfound understanding” about what IS and what is NOT the gospel. And it wasn’t until about the age of 30 or so that I FINALLY began to see just how EVIL and WRONG and INACCURATE the Roman Catholic Church and “institutionalized Christianity” REALLY IS! And sadly, it wasn’t until the age of about 33 or so that I gained the FULL KNOWLEDGE that I have now that the “Judeo-Christian” path is the ONLY fully CORRECT bible interpretation and way of life!

From the outside looking in, it seems “harsh” or “narrow-minded” to say (in retrospect): “This is the ONLY fully correct bible interpretation and way of life”. But it’s true. I have not been able to find ONE error in the Judeo-Christian path so far, NOT ONE! And I am a MOST DILIGENT seeker of God’s Word (Jesus) and God’s Written Word (The Bible). The several scriptures that I’ve shared with you are to PROVE that we still need to honor the BIBLICAL SABBATH (the 7th Day) and the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, First-fruits, etc.!)

Also….please remember: The Roman Catholic Church and today’s “institutionalized church” write them off as “Jewish holidays, ONLY”. But they are NOT “Jewish holidays” only, they are BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS. And not only that, but they weren’t only for Jewish people and “biblical times”, they were meant for ALL of the Lord’s people, for ALL time! (Note: Did you know for example that Jesus will STILL have people celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles etc. during the New Millennium? It’s true! Read your bibles!)

That now being said, there’s a couple verses that I want us to now take a closer look at….

Colossians 2:16-17

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ

Acts 10:28

“And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any MAN common or unclean

Matthew 15:16-20

And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? 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, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man”

Many Christians today want to interpret Peter’s vision of the animals on a sheet in Acts 10 as a sign that ALL FOOD IS CLEAN and OK to eat. HOWEVER…..Peter later understands the ANIMALS in the vision were used to represent PEOPLE (as in, different groups of PEOPLE). Therefore, that’s when Jesus showed Peter in a vision that ALL PEOPLE were meant to receive the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ and NOT JUST the Jews!!!!!

And in Matthew 15:16-20, the Pharisees were asking Jesus why he and his 12 disciples did not “ritually wash” their hands before eating, so Jesus was explaining to them WHY He and his disciples DID NOT have to ritually wash their hands before eating! In other words, He was emphasizing to the Pharisees that THE WORDS that come out of a man are what DEFILES a man and not HIS UNWASHED HANDS! Jesus never said diet wasn’t important, He just emphasized that more emphasis is placed on the WORDS of man, rather than his “ritual practices” before eating.

As for Colossians 2:16-17, Jesus is telling US (the Messianic Jews/Judeo-Christians) to not let ANY Christian/NON-Christian/NON-Judeo-Christian/NON-Messianic Jew judge US (the Judeo-Christian/Messianic Jew) *FOR* following the BIBLICAL 7th Day Sabbath (Saturday), the 7 BIBLICAL holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) and the BIBLICAL dietary laws (NO PORK, SHELLFISH, ETC.) Make sense?

One does not have to go far to see all the “adversity” towards “Judeo-Christians/Messianic Jews” today. You’ll often hear things such as the following:

  • “We’re under a new covenant now, we no longer need to follow the Old Testament!”
  • “Well, those holidays are for Jews, only. What, you gonna convert to Judaism now or something?”
  • “But Peter was shown that ALL animals are clean for eating! I can eat pork and shellfish if I want to!”
  • “Uh! Quit telling me not to celebrate the Pagan Christian holidays! Who are YOU to judge ME? Tradition is tradition and so what! It doesn’t harm a person to follow Pagan Christian traditions! You’re splitting hairs on this, you’re such a Judaizer!” 
  • “Jesus has one set of laws for the Jews and one set of laws for the Christians. He judges each group by their OWN set of laws!”
  • “If you want to follow the “Jewish” laws and feasts, you should go to a synagogue!”
  • “You can’t be both “Jewish” AND Christian! You either need to be one or the other!”

Those are some of the most common arguments against “Messianic Judaism/Judeo-Christianity”. However, I’d like to examine a few more bible passages that explain how and why Jesus works on a “continuum”. He doesn’t start something without finishing it.

Philippians 1:6 states: “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

Here, the “day of Jesus Christ”, in my humble opinion, is talking about the 2nd arrival of Jesus upon the Earth in his holy, fully-glorified form. So in other words, the law and the work that was done in ancient Israel by Jesus Christ will be FULLY COMPLETED in the “New Israel”, if that makes any sense? Everything works on a “continuum” in the Kingdom of God. This is a passage that has a two-fold meaning.

On the one hand, it’s talking about the SPIRITUAL nation of Israel (as a WHOLE) ALL THROUGHOUT TIME and on another hand, it’s talking about each INDIVIDUAL person that comprises the SPIRITUAL NATION OF ISRAEL (if that makes any sense?) Because remember that not ALL physical Jews living in Israel at the time of Jesus embraced God’s Laws and God’s Messiah (Jesus).

Those ones were considered “children of Israel” in name ONLY but NOT in SPIRIT! (Remember the various Old Testament passages where it said “the children of Israel once again turned to idols/idolatry”, etc.?) And I want to be VERY CLEAR on this as well: a Jewish person themselves IS/WAS a part of the SPIRITUAL nation of Israel if and when they fully accept(ed) Jesus as Messiah and obeyed/obey his commands!

Now, let us examine a few more bible passages concerning the “continuation” of Jesus’s law:

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” – Matthew 24:35

Okay, so what can we gather from that? We know from several other scriptures (Isaiah 65:17, Revelation 21:1, Revelation 21:23) that the CURRENT heaven and Earth will BE DESTROYED and/or FOLDED UP LIKE A SCROLL, while a NEW HEAVEN and a NEW EARTH will be CREATED and BROUGHT DOWN TO EARTH. However, the WORDS OF GOD shall EXIST FOREVER! Therefore, it stands to reason: if his WORDS last forever, then that must also mean that his LAW lasts the ENTIRE BIBLE (beginning to End) – minus the animal sacrifices from Old Testament as soon as Jesus came to Earth the first time! 

Matthew 5:17-18 has something to say about the matter: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 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.”

Therefore we know that there’s still PLENTY of stuff to be fulfilled: The Mark of the Beast, The Antichrist, The War of Armageddon, The New Heaven and New Earth, The Great White Throne Judgement, etc.] So what that passage is saying is that UNTIL everything is fulfilled and I mean, E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G., the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS and BIBLICAL LAW **STILL APPLY!**

The only reason the biblical LAW will be done away with at the very END of Revelation 22 is because it will NO LONGER BE NEEDED for ALL who live in New Jerusalem at that time will be considered righteous, holy and untainted/WITHOUT SIN!

But a couple other passages that REALLY speak to my spirit concerning the matter are the following:

Please note that this first passage is said in FOUR different ways: Mark 7:7-9 and verse 13, respectively:

  • “HOWBEIT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN
  • “For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do”.
  • And he said unto them, ‘Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition”
  • “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye”

Mark 7:7 IMMEDIATELY makes me think of all the “traditions” floating around today, that “the church” has taught over the years (Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, LGBT infiltration of schools/churches, “the law has been done away with” movement, “church entertainment”, etc). And think about it for a minute. WHAT or WHO has created all those “traditions?” They most certainly didn’t come from Jesus or his RIGHTEOUS ANGELS!

Jesus and the disciples never ONCE celebrated Christmas or Easter! Jesus and his disciples never ONCE welcomed practicing sodomites into the synagogues or made services all about the music and “entertainment”, rather than the MESSAGE! If John the Baptist or Paul were walking around today, observing how FAR all the modern-day churches have STRAYED from Jesus and his gospel, they’d be one of two things: RIGHTEOUSLY ANGRY, CRYING BITTER, BITTER TEARS or BOTH!

But two of the things they’d likely be MOST TROUBLED ABOUT is Paganized, masonic churches meeting on Sunday, the FALSE man-made gospel, rather than the TRUE biblical gospel (Saturday, the 7th day) and OPEN SODOMITES in the church and the “embracing” of OPEN SODOMY! They’d probably quickly run outside to throw up, their righteous spirits would be SO disturbed by what they saw! Therefore, it stands to reason: if Jesus and his disciples would be “disturbed” or “confused” by what they saw going on in modern-day churches today, then should mankind BE doing those abominable things? It begs of question!

In Matthew 7:13-14, JESUS HIMSELF said the following: 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 STRAIGHT is the gate, and NARROW is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW there be that find it”.

 

This isn’t unlike another passage in Luke 16:15 which states: “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 abomination in the sight of God“. 

So lets unpack these two bible passages a bit. In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus is telling us that VERY FEW people find the STRAIGHT and NARROW gate (i.e. SPIRITUAL DOORWAY) which leads to LIFE! What is LIFE? It is JESUS HIMSELF! Jesus says in John 14:6:“…….I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by ME”. Put differently, Jesus is more or less telling us in that bible verse that he’s the ONLY way to Eternal Salvation/Eternal Life/Eternal Life with Him in “New Jerusalem” someday.

However, in telling us that the spiritual doorway/pathway to HIM and his ETERNAL TRUTH is NARROW, STRAIGHT and HARD TO FIND, He is ALSO telling us that the spiritual doorway/pathway to ETERNAL DESTRUCTION is VERY BROAD, WIDE, and VERY EASY to find! That’s why MOST PEOPLE will take THAT (i.e. the “easy”) way in life, instead of the STRAIGHT and NARROW way. Therefore, the NUMBER of people who will TRULY be saved by Jesus is very, very SMALL….a SMALL REMNANT:

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” – Luke 12:32

In other words, it is God the Heavenly’s Father GOOD PLEASURE to give the eternal kingdom of God to the SMALL REMNANT who TRULY believed in Jesus, obeyed him and called upon His name, instead of taking the more “popular” way in life! Meaning, they were willing to suffer persecution for Jesus’s name and for righteousness’s sake!

They were WILLING to suffer persecutions at home, in the workplace, abroad, online. They were WILLING to be mocked, laughed at, scorned, arrested on false “hate” charges, etc. They were WILLING to be imprisoned, killed, tortured and/or maimed for Jesus’s sake! They were WILLING to keep preaching the gospel in spite of low number of subscribers, low number of listeners and/or watchers and/or low number of congregants!

On the other hand, Jesus is letting us know right there in those passages that many, many, MANY people are on their way to hell/the lake of fire (even many whom call themselves “Christians”:

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” – 2 Timothy 3:5

(Note: does the above passage remind anyone of famous televangelist preachers and/or the Pope? Or the “holier than thou Christians” seen in many churches and Christian online communities today? I sure hope so!)

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many 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” – Matthew 7:21-23

In other words, just because you “call” yourself a Christian DOES NOT MEAN that you are truly born again per say, in JESUS’S EYES! Just “calling” yourself Christian or a believer in Jesus isn’t enough! You have to do the “talk” AND walk the “walk!” Meaning, you MUST obey Jesus’s commandments, and NOT just merely “believe” in him! Luke 21:36 states: “Watch therefore, and pray ALWAYS that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

And moseying on over to Luke 16:15, that passage is letting us know that what’s POPULAR among mankind in today’s world (i.e. think the “worship” of celebrities, vlogs, TicToc, Instagram, Facebook, LGBT “rights” and “propaganda”, “abortion”, “sodomy”, “pre-marital sex”, Youtube, videogames, “eating pork/shellfish/unkosher foods”, reality shows, secular movies/music/books, “socialistic ideals”, “trends”, etc.) is abomination in the sight of God. Jesus doesn’t like us worshiping celebrities etc. because it has the potential to damn our souls to eternal condemnation if we don’t REPENT (that means, to give up) such “worldly things” and “worldly behavior”. 

Therefore, whenever you see a “popular trend” among mankind, or see people just ranting and raving about how good this show is, how good these chips are, how good this movie is or how good that book is, you can almost be certain that that very “thing” is an abomination in the sight of God. However, interestingly enough, I DO NOT think the same criteria of Luke 16:15 applies to good CHRISTIAN things/music/materials. Because if something TRULY glorifies Jesus, why would Jesus NOT glory in it? Ya know? 

========

Yet another passage I’d like to share is Isaiah 29:13 which states: “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid”

So here, we can see from this passage that many “Christians” and “Jews” and even many “Judeo-Christians” THEMSELVES, honor Jesus with their LIPS (going around saying “Praise God”, “Praise Jesus, etc.) but yet, their SPIRITUAL *HEART* is far FROM him!

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” – Matthew 6:21

Therefore, BECAUSE their spiritual HEART is far from him, he’s gonna CONFOUND (that means CONFUSE or LEAD ASTRAY/INTO CIRCLES) those who consider themselves “wise” or of whom others consider to be “wise” and he’s gonna HIDE the true gospel and TRUE biblical teachings from those who refuse or desire NOT to see them (i.e. mockers/scoffers, lukewarm Christians, the prideful/arrogant, the staunch atheists, the apathetic, etc.)

We see alot of that in the modern-day churches (and even modern-day Christian music industry, today). People substitute the word “God” for “Jesus” in alot of places, and try to make that “god” an all-encompassing god (i.e. claiming the God of the bible is the same as “Allah”, etc.) Well folks, the God of the bible is NOT in any way, shape or form the same god as “Allah” or any OTHER lower-case g god! The God of the bible is the ONLY true God! This is expressly spoken all throughout scripture! 

There’s also alot of people that “go to church” once a week, but then NEGLECT Jesus and his gospel the rest of the week. These are the people who “praise Jesus” in church but then revert back to their OWN lives the rest of the week! These are the people who say: “Sure, I believe in Jesus, he was a great moral teacher” or “Yeah, I believe in Jesus so I’ll automatically go to heaven just for believing in Jesus, ALONE”. Their LIPS praise Jesus but their HEARTS are far from Him! 

Let us examine Matthew 6:21 in a bit more detail: Where is your TREASURE? What are you MOST FOCUSED ON in life? What do you spend your MONEY on? (Most biblical scholars agree that your “treasure” is biblically and spiritually defined as what you most spend your MONEY on!)

In fact, there is SO much pressure in today’s society to “fit in” that people will buy things just to PROVE they have money and just to PROVE they’re not poor! And that’s where you get the concept of people “treasuring” material things/wealth MORE than they “treasure” Jesus/the gospel!

So in conclusion, in order to FULLY obey God/Jesus Christ, one must follow and obey the COMPLETE bible, not just HALF the bible! And to follow ALL the bible, we must have a true spiritual HEART for the bible! (Meaning, we must consider God’s Law above ALL other worldly things in our lives!) For HALF the bible is only HALF the truth! Please remember that Jesus is revealed IN the law and IN the biblical Sabbaths and IN the biblical feasts! Jesus is TRUTH! Only following HALF of the bible or HALF of the law is SPIRITUALLY HALF-HEARTED!

Think about it, folks! If we only obeyed the laws of the New Testament and not the Old, we’ve done ourselves a SERIOUS disservice! Same if we ONLY followed the laws of the Old Testament but not the New! We can’t just use the bible as a cafeteria line and pick which parts we want to follow and which parts not, it doesn’t work that way! Scripture determines scripture, FEELINGS don’t determine scripture!

BLASPHEMOUS Amazon Documentary Paints Jesus As Nothing More Than “GREEK Philosopher”

An Amazon Prime documentary has made claim that Jesus Christ was not a Jew from Nazareth, but rather a Greek philosopher named Apollonius, born in the Anatolia region of Turkey.

The above false, biblical theory about Jesus is being put out by the group known as “Bible Conspiracies”, who also claim such unbiblical whoppers as “an alien race known as the Annunaki destroyed the tower of Babel” and also that “Sodom & Gomorrah were actually taken out by a nuclear explosion!”

Not withstanding, it only got a 2 STAR RATING, with many viewers on Amazon voicing their displeasure with the highly blasphemous film:

“The writers of this film not only have NO actual Biblical knowledge, they quote many myths that have been not only been disproved, but are laughed at in theological circles. In this video, there are no experts, no theologians, only many rhetorical lies that are often spewed by evolutionists and atheists.”

Yet another viewer said the following:

“Does not live up to its name – doesn’t reveal any Bible ‘conspiracies’ only tries to cast doubt on the Bible with no historical evidence or interviews with trustworthy experts, just pure conjecture.”

Apollonius of Perga was BORN 262BC in Perga, Turkey and DIED around 190BC in Alexandria, Egypt. So already right there, we can KNOW beyond 100% fact that Apollonius didn’t even LIVE around the same time as Jesus/Yeshua!!!!! (Although if ya want to claim that he invented mathemtical “conic sections”, you might possibly be on to something there, but I digress…..)

Sadly, this “blasphemous documentary” on Jesus is just one of MANY! Several of these “bible conspiracy” documentaries try to shed light on HOW God/Jesus did the things He did……such as HOW He performed his divine miracles and their “secular reasoning” is WAY, WAY OFF!

There’s also false claims (in general) from “skeptics” about HOW Jesus was able to walk on the sea or make wine from water, etc. And UNLESS a person has KNOWLEDGE of the bible, they’re gonna fall victim to many of these false and blasphemous “documentaries”. And these “documentaries” ALL have ONE goal in common: to BLASPHEME JESUS/YESHUA……..either by saying he “never existed” or that the “Jesus of the bible is NOT the actual Jesus”, etc.

Now, I don’t write about this false, blasphemous Amazon Prime documentary to deceive or confuse you but rather to INFORM you about the works of the enemy! Now…..true, most of you will probably be smart enough to see past the Devil’s lies on that one! But an “unsaved person” probably would NOT be able to tell the difference between the biblical Jesus and the false “Jesus” that this documentary promotes! Therefore, I pray that ALL who read this post will simply KNOW that the Amazon prime documentary claiming that Jesus was actually a Greek philosopher is FALSE, FALSE, FALSE!

And P.S.: After this “false documentary” coming to light, I’m now thinking on rather or not I should boycott or severely limit my Amazon usage from now on. For by LETTING this blasphemous documentary on Jesus come to Amazon Prime TO BEGIN WITH, Amazon has now made it abundantly clear to me that they do NOT represent the TRUE, JEWISH, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible in any way, shape or form! Nor do they any longer truly represent ME, a born-again Christian customer!

So perhaps from now on, I should just start using Barnes & Noble or think of another alternative UNTIL Amazon REMOVES that blasphemous “false Jesus” documentary. And then, once and if they DO, I will once again resume shopping at Amazon since I admit that I love shopping there. But seriously. What’s the point of my shopping there on Amazon anymore if they no longer want to truly represent me as a born-again Christian customer? Am I over-reacting? Taking it a bit too far, perhaps?

I don’t think so. Because after having met Jesus personally during an N.D.E., I do NOT take any “blasphemous” things about him too lightly! It feels like a personal punch in the gut to me whenever somebody and/or some “corporation” is trying to say false or bad things about Jesus and so I can’t stand that!

Lets face it folks, it would really be no different than if some random stranger (a business owner) came up to you and boldly declared a bald-faced lie about one of your loved ones. If you just KNEW that what they were saying about your loved one was BLATANTLY FALSE and had NO MERIT whatsoever, you’d be pretty put off, too! (I’m actually not sure if I’m more hurt or ANGRY whenever I see someone or something blaspheming Jesus, the one and only true Messiah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

However, sometimes I DO believe that Jesus ALLOWS us to experience OTHERS blaspheming him in OUR presense in order to remind US of who HE is! Let me explain. I saw Jesus during an N.D.E., therefore, I KNOW beyond 100% FACT that he’s the one and only true Messiah! However, sometimes I believe he allows us to come across knowledge of things such as the “blasphemous documentary about him” on Amazon, etc., in order to RE-AFFIRM who he is!

In other words, by ALLOWING that false documentary about him on Amazon, he’s letting us know that he WASN’T a “Greek philosopher”. If that makes any sense? Plus I also think he allows such things in order to test the HEARTS of people. Let me elaborate. Okay, so lets say average Joe Schmoe or Sally Jane sees the documentary claiming Jesus was nothing more than a Greek philosopher.

Perhaps Jesus then wants to test the HEARTS of “Joe Schmoe” and/or “Sally Jane” in order to see if “Joe” and/or “Sally” just take the documentary’s word for it……OR if “Joe” and/or “Sally” decide to look into it a bit more and do the actual research for themselves as in, “Is THAT true? Is that REALLY what happened? What is the EVIDENCE for THAT claim?”

But yet, here’s the clincher: Even if “Joe” or “Sally” DO just take the documentary’s word for it (and soon publicly declare the documentary’s “theory” among family, friends, coworkers and strangers), they’ll soon likely come across someone (rather Christian or not) that tells them: “Actually, there’s NO historical basis for the documentary’s claims…..the Greek philosopher lived long before Jesus was supposedly born, so….?”

And THAT will then get the “Joe” and “Sally” people searching on a DIFFERENT quest of sorts: “Wait, WHAT? What do you MEAN it’s not true? How IS the evidence lacking?” They will then be FORCED to look into the LACK of evidence from the documentary and come to realize that the makers of the documentary were just out to mock God and make a cheap buck. And then ofcourse, that will send them on another “quest for truth”, altogether……perhaps a quest for JESUS’S TRUE BIBLICAL TRUTH, even (which could never be a BAD thing……)

But that reasoning aside, I DO think that Jesus tests our knowledge of him and his gospel from time to time in order to keep us on our spiritual toes. I call it “spiritual discernment training”. Because lets face it, if Jesus doesn’t fine-tune our spiritual knowledge of him and his gospel from time to time, we will become suspectible to spiritual deception and Jesus and the Holy Spirit don’t want that, which is WHY we oftentimes come across blasphemous things about Jesus that make us stop, take a step back, and say to ourselves: “Wait a minute…..THAT can’t be true…….it contradicts the bible here, here and here…..that’s BLASPHEMY!”

And when we get to the point where we ARE able to recognize something as “blasphemous” or “biblically false”, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are never more proud of us! It’s like they’re saying in unison, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – [John 10:27-28]

However, the people that willingly BELIEVE the “blasphemy?” Especially in the current End Times in which we’re now living in? Jesus has THIS to say:

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” – 2 Timothy 3:4

Can we say OUCH? But to put it in a deeper context, I want to quote another bible passage that I think reiterates the point:

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12]

So in other words, in the FIRST passage up above (in 2 Timothy 3:4), people are believing what they “think” or what they “feel” should be biblically true (i.e. “I believe that ALL people should go to heaven unless they were like, Hitler or something”). And BECAUSE of the total “hardness” of their hearts, and their “stubborness” IN believing in what THEY “think” or “feel” should be the gospel truth, instead of the ACTUAL gospel truth, Jesus then in turn ALLOWS them to believe and feel whatever they want (EVEN IF what they “believe” and “feel” should be the gospel truth isn’t the true gospel truth AT ALL!)

And through the time and over the years, Jesus tries INNUMERABLE ways to try to “chip away” at their stubborn, cold hearts. But IF they don’t repent (and then later go on to to take the Mark of the Beast – thus believing in the “strong delusion” of the Antichrist’s lies – and lets face it, Mark of the Beast is the ULTIMATE STRONG DELUSION OF DELUSIONS), Jesus has NO CHOICE but to DAMN THAT PERSON’S SOUL FOR ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! OUCH! ;-(

There’s many mockers and scoffers out there in these last days, making “mockumentaries galore” (rather it’s movies, tv shows, magazine covers, album covers, social media posts, newspaper articles, books, SNL – Saturday Night Live, or whatever have you). And my oh my how I just PRAY for all those lost souls. For they just have NO IDEA what all they’re up against if they die without the saving grace of Jesus Christ! Many think that “hell won’t be that bad”.

Well, the fires of hell aren’t even eternal. Why? Because they’re gonna be MERGED WITH the fire in the LAKE OF FIRE! And the fires of hell are 10,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter (I know……because an angel told me during a near-suicide experience several years ago…….And I was even somewhat skeptical of the angel’s words, until I did the “research” for myself by reading the Revelation passages where it’s mentioned the fires of hell will merge with the lake of fire). And the lake of fire is 100,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell and 1,000,000,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter! So YOU do the math, folks!

Some think: “Hey! No problem! People’ll just burn till they’re consumed, then they’ll cease to exist”. Well, I post THIS in response to their “false, lukewarm assumptions”:

“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]

“Oh but certainly that couldn’t be mean FOREVER & EVER”, some panicked atheist or lukewarm Christian often says. But that’s NOT what the bible says, my friends! It says FOREVER and EVER! For ETERNITY! It also says they have NO REST day or night! Translation? They WILL be tormented for eternity! Why? Because they CHOSE to be tormented for eternity by REJECTING Jesus’s sacrifice for them (and for all of mankind) on the cross of Calvary!

“Oh but certainly a LOVING GOD wouldn’t DO such a thing”, some panicked person somewhere still argues in their heart, in response. Think of it THIS way: If a parent sends off their hateful, cold-hearted, ungrateful, spiteful, vengeful, angry child off to “boot camp” or “military school” to try to straighten them out and they come back even WORSE than before or just AS worse as they were before they went there, then the parent SADLY has no choice but to PERMANETLY DISOWN their child!

But imagine this slightly differently: Imagine the loving parent warning the child: “If you come back from military school just as bad or worse than before, and don’t repent of your hateful behavior towards me, then I will have no choice but to eternally disown you and throw you into an eternal burning heap of torment“, and the child then CHOOSES to not repent after that time of “boot camp” or “military school”, then the parent, sadly, has NO CHOICE but to follow through with their ultimatum.

Why? Because they KNOW, they just simply KNOW, that if they let their hateful, spiteful, UNREPETANT kid back into their house again, that the kid will just hate them 10 TIMES MORE than before! And not only THAT but they ALSO chose ANOTHER “parental figure”, one who LIES to them and only wants to DESTROY THEM! You, as the loving parent, and through all your OBEDIENT children, try so desperately to tell your “wayward child” THE TRUTH about THE ENEMY, but they just simply won’t listen…..

THE ENEMY is now their “god” and YOU, the loving parent, are now spiritually left in the dust in their life! And so NOW, when this “wayward child” demands to come home but hurts you again and again and again, you have NO CHOICE but to follow up with your ultimatem………..and leave THEM in the dust, eternally perishing in fire………which is sadly what your “wayward child” had secretly wanted all along by NOT listening to you, the loving parent!

So it is with God! He is like the “loving parent” and “creator” that desperately loves us and wants us to love him back and obey him! But IF we choose NOT to obey him and NOT to accept his eternal gift of Salvation through Jesus, then he has NO CHOICE but to throw us into the lake of fire for all eternity! And he takes NO PLEASURE in that! Absolutely NONE!

In fact, 2 Peter 3:9 states: “The Lord 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

Translation? Jesus does not want anyone to “perish”. But IF a person chooses (by their own actions) to REJECT CHRIST and his commandments, then Jesus has no choice but to ALLOW that unfortunate soul to “perish”. Jesus can’t undo what he SAYS he will do, cause otherwise, he wouldn’t be God! Think about it, folks! 

Plus John 3:16 boldly declares: “For God [The Heavenly Father] so loved the world [mankind], that he [The Heavenly Father] gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whoever believeth in him [Jesus Christ] shall not perish [go to the lake of fire for eternity] but have eternal life” [Eternal Life with Jesus Christ in “Paradise”] 

We MUST Have A “Spiritual Relationship” with Jesus Christ!!!!!

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many 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”[Matthew 7:21-23]

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes” [Matthew 7:24-29]

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 thereatbecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW there be that find it[Matthew 7:13-14]

His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” [Matthew 25:21]

“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34]

So what can we gather from this? Well, we know that Matthew chapter 7, verses 13-14 means that ALOT of people will go to eternal destruction in the flames of fire! We also know that VERY FEW people will make it to eternal paradise with Jesus Christ someday in his new heavenly city entitled “New Jerusalem”. It will be built by God the Heavenly Father himself and his angels and descend down out of heaven onto the new Earth.

Lets go back and read Matthew 7:13-14 once more:“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: 14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it”.

The key words here are “narrow is the way”. That means that ALL those who follow the path of LIFE (eternal truth in Jesus Christ Almighty) will be FEW in number. Why? Because they will be seen as “narrow-minded” by many others who follow the “broad path” [that is to mean, the way of destruction]. The road to eternal destruction will have MANY people on it because it is the EASY path. For it is far more easier for every human to sin than not sin, correct?

[It takes ALOT of strength, courage and discipline to “go against the mold” and stand up for own’s Judeo-Christian beliefs in today’s “fallen world”]. And “hating Jesus Christ” today, in our current global world and “culture”, is seen as “cool/hip/popular/EVERYBODY’S-DOING-IT-SO-WHY-SHOULDN’T-WE?” type of thing.

And all the people out there who TRY to adhere to biblical principles (“homosexuality/homosexual marriage is WRONG”) are seen as “hateful” and “narrow-minded”. [Note: While I agree that homosexual marriage and homosexual behavior is 100% WRONG in the eyes of Jesus Christ and the bible, I do NOT fully agree with the *hateful* way that that particular message was/is preached by the Westboro Baptist Church: and I just had to get that out there].

However, I DO want to make the point that Satan and his demons are 100% behind homosexuality. Luciean Greaves calls gay marriage a sacrament within the Church of Satan. Plus also look at the following photos and then try to tell me that Satan’s not somehow personally involved with the homosexual behaviors/agenda of LGBT people!

   SAME SEX COUPLES MAKE OUT ON GRAVE2  SAME SEX COUPLES, BLASPHEMOUS  SAME SEX COUPLES, BLASHPHEME    

Also, un-natural perversion/sodomy is NOT LOVE, it’s PURE LUST! Don’t believe me? Examine the following photos:

GAY PRIDE  GAY PRIDE5   butch lesbiansGAY PRIDE10 GAY PRIDE8 GAY PRIDE11   LESBIAN LUST

Gay marriage and lust is like the “cancer” that’s taking over America right now (especially in the churches) and it’s ONLY gonna get worse, people! But one thing’s for sure. The Lord God Heavenly Father created marriage to be between ONE man and ONE woman…….and children were supposed to be a NATURAL BLESSING to a good, NATURAL marriage, created by and ordained by God. There is absolutely NOTHING ordained by God in today’s current “lust/sodomy” movement. Lets get real, here!

Anyways, moving on. Many of the Pagan churches out there today that call themselves “Christian” don’t teach you about the TRUE aspects of Jesus Christ Almighty! In fact, they only teach to you a VERY watered-down, even Pagan version of Him! Which is so, so heartbreaking! IF ONLY many Christians today knew the TRUE HISTORY of the “church” and of the Pagan practices running rampant in it, today! Today’s Christianity “model” is about AS FAR FROM THE BIBLE AS IT CAN GET! SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!! Do your research people, then you’ll know what I mean!!!!!!!

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY   PAGAN CHRISTIANITY2

But anyways, many churches today preach a “sermon” about this or that, and about how we need to have “faith”, etc. And while it’s true that we need to have faith due to Hebrews 11:6 saying “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”, it’s also true that we need to REPENT of our sins and have a TRUE spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ!

In other words, we can’t just READ the bible, we must APPLY the bible to our very lives! For example, the bible says we are to forgive someone who asks for forgiveness 70 times 7! Are you forgiving the people around you who’ve hurt you? Just like the bible ALSO says when you loan something to someone, don’t expect to get it back. Give it to the one in need FREELY. And on the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ said in Matthew 5:40: “And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also“.

We must also spend time with Jesus Christ every single day in prayer! This is HUGE! Because lets face it, ANY person can “go to church every week” or “quote scripture”, but that doesn’t mean they’re right with God/Jesus Christ Almighty. It only means they’re “religious”. And the truth is, Jesus Christ HATES “religion” since RELIGION, in and of itself, is based on mankind’s TRADITIONS, while the actual written bible itself, is based on God’s laws and God’s heavenly decrees and history.

Not only did he create you in your mother’s womb before you were born but he loves you! And he wants to get to know you! Each and every single one of you humans walking the Earth today! But he can’t do that if you won’t let him! That’s what he means when he says in Matthew 7:23 “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity“.

In the above passage, he’s talking about all the people who “went through the motions” of “religion” but that never actually took the time to get to know him personally and spiritually! These folks also never took the time to get to know his history, his TRUE history in the Old AND New Testaments, COMBINED. Because remember that the New Testament is a CONTINUATION of the OLD Testament. Jesus Christ appeared in times of the Old Testament during what’s called a “Cristophany” (pre-New Testament appearance of Jesus Christ in SPIRITUAL FORM, instead of FLESHLY FORM!) He was in the Lions Den at the time of Daniel the Prophet, just like he was also the “solider” that helped Joshua overtake Jericho!

Because during the Day of Judgement, when Jesus Christ says to those poor unfortunate souls who chased after all the wrong things/people in life: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”, MANY of those folks are going to be “CHRISTIANS!” Yes, CHRISTIANS! And even Jesus-rejecting Jews! As well as ALL other Jesus-rejecters (be they Satanists, Wiccans, Atheists, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.)

But HOW? WHY?, you may ask. And I’m going tell you why! These were the “Christian” folks who never bothered to do their research about the true origins of the Christian religion. Like sheep being led to the slaughter, they just followed along with “church traditions” without ever really bothering to research them and to see rather or not what the church taught was actually in the bible or not.

[They’re also the Satanic/Wiccan folks that thought they were “too good” for God/Jesus Christ or those who followed a false religion (Catholics, Mormons, Hindus, Muslims, etc.) or those Atheists that proudly and openly rejected God/Jesus Christ to try to appear “cool” and “hip” to others!] 

The VERY first clue comes near the beginning of Genesis:

“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made” [Genesis 2:2-3]

And the Lord God CREATED the Sabbath and his 7 Annual Feasts/Holidays to serve as a “sign” between he and ALL his people for ALL generations! (Even NOW!)

“Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them” [Ezekial 20:12]

“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you” [Exodus 31:13]

So WHY then does your “Christian church” worship on the 1ST DAY of the week (Sunday) and NOT the true “7th Day” of the week? Have you EVER asked yourself that?

Well, quite frankly, HERE’S WHY:

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923): The [Catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact”

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894: 
”We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary: The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920: “If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108: “But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify

Jesus Christ is going to say to MANY, MANY people in that great and dreadful day of Judgement: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” [Matthew 7:23]

And the REASON he’s going to say that to many people is because they can “go to church every week on Sunday”, they can “quote scripture”, they can follow other false gods and religions but yet, MANY of them can’t tell you how Jesus Christ truly feels about tatoos, or dyed hair, or Disney shows that promote cleavage, etc. They can’t name off any prophets from the Old Testament (save for Noah, thanks to the blasphemous movie of the same name), or even seem to know that Jesus was “Jewish”.

They (9 times out of 10) don’t know and realize that the TRUE Sabbath is on SATURDAY (and if they do, they don’t care). Even among the Christian churches and several different bible translations out there today, someone once said to me of one of them: “I like the NEW King James Bible, it’s goes along with what “I” believe in!”. And this seems to be the spiritual attitude of many Christians out there in today’s world.

And well, I say this with love, but the bible is NOT like a “custom-made hamburger, that one can customize to their tastes”, it’s either all true or it isn’t, theoretically speaking, right folks? [And I submit to you today that it’s 100% beyond a doubt true and they – the Luciferian establishment – have YET to prove it wrong- and will NEVER be able to prove it wrong for all eternity and that’s WHY they’re so angry with the Lord’s people, TODAY!]

There’s NO need to “miss and match” with God’s written word in the bible because quite frankly, if one is going to do THAT, why even try to be a “Christian” AT ALL? What would be the point? Because if you take out ONE part from the bible, you’d have to take out ALL parts of it.

Christians: You can’t do away with the Old Testament or Old Testament Law since that would INVALIDATE the New Testament if you did so.

Jesus-rejecting Jews: (note: not ALL Jews reject Jesus but most do): You CAN’T take away the New Testament from God’s written word in the bible since that would INVALIDATE the Old Testament. The New Testament is a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament and the Old and New Testaments are ONE complete story/history of God Almighty and ONE complete “Testament” of him.

Which brings me to another point: The Talmud. For those of you not in the know, the Talmud is a set of “oral tradition writings/commentary” that are supposedly from the time of Moses. However, we know from the testimony of God’s written word (God’s COMPLETE written word) that the ONLY thing that God gave to Moses was the first five books of the bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy – which ofcourse includes the 10 commandments and Sabbath ordinances/7 holy annual feasts of the Lord).

So I most kindly and humbly say to Jews and Christians ALIKE: “Don’t drink the Kool-aide! DO YOUR RESEARCH!” Don’t follow traditions of man (the Talmud). Follow instead the TRUE traditions of God Almighty (the Old and New Testaments!) There’s over 330+ Messianic Prophecies from the Old Testament 100% FULFILLED beyond a doubt in Jesus Christ in the New Testament! But the Talmud won’t tell you that. The Talmud was written by those who HATE Jesus Christ and were jealous of his divinity and power!

Just like ALL modern day “Christian bible” translations were ALSO written up by people who HATE Jesus Christ Almighty and everything he stands for! Don’t believe me? Check it out!!!!

And if you’re a Jew who’s wondering if it’s okay rather or not you become a believer in Yeshua Mashiach, please read the following:

http://www.gotquestions.org/Jewish-Christian.html

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: to both Jews and Christians ALIKE…….Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation! And you’re not gonna find the truth of Salvation in today’s average “church” or “synagogue” (sorry to say).

Jeremiah 29:13 says: “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart”

The Power Of Starting Over On A Fresh, Clean Slate….

We’ve all said and done things in our lives that we regret and that we possibly hate ourselves for, looking back…..things in our lives that we wish we NEVER would’ve said or done or that we should’ve done DIFFERENTLY.

Well, with Jesus Christ, we CAN start all over and we CAN have our slate wiped clean and start a new life.

But first, we must have an INTERNAL change within our mind, heart, body and spirit. We have to regret all our misdeeds/”sins” in our life SO MUCH that we’re willing to do almost anything to change them.

What’s sin? Sin is transgression of the law (of God). Ever stolen anything? Ever lusted after a woman (men) or a man (ladies) that you weren’t married to? Ever told a lie? Said the Lord’s name in vain? That makes you a thief, an adulterer, a liar and a blasphemer and that’s just FOUR of the 10 commandments!

But that is where Jesus Christ comes in. The prophesied Jewish Messiah talked about in the Old Testament and the only true begotten Son of God, HE gave his very own LIFE during the crucifixion & shed his very own holy blood, just SO mankind could be FORGIVEN for their sins AND assured a spot in Eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday! And there is NO greater love than that, people!

Jesus Christ loves us all SO MUCH, that he was more than willing to DIE for us on the cross, just so WE could be forgiven of our sins and just so WE could have a way to spend ETERNITY WITH GOD IN NEW JERUSALEM someday. And so again, there is NO greater love than that!

3 days later after Jesus Christ was crucified, he rose from the dead (just like he told his disciples he would). [Google the “Shroud of Turin”] And 40 days after that, Jesus Christ (in front of the apostles and others) ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God, the heavenly Father. But don’t just take MY word for it. See for yourselves!

Jesus Christ was God in the flesh and he proved it…..not only in the bible and to his disciples and various non-Christian crowds after he rose from the dead just 3 days later after he died on the cross, but to myself as well (during a near-death experience).

The thing about Jesus Christ is that he doesn’t care WHO you are or WHAT you’ve done so far in your life. You CAN be forgiven for all your sins, just like you CAN start over a brand new life in him!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper, bank robber, homeless, a drug addicted person, a practicing homosexual. No sin is too bad to be forgiven of, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit: (many bible scholars believe that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is to claim that Jesus Christ got his power from Satan but it can also likely mean several other things, too, such as not believing that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and DYING in that sin of unbelief, etc.)

Jesus Christ can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and turn it around and make that person CLEAN by teaching that person how to OVERCOME their unrighteousness and become a righteous person in his heavenly site! Jesus Christ can set a person FREE from their sins and their failures and their addictions.

Whatever you’re going through in life, Jesus Christ has a solution and an answer. But you got to TRUST JESUS CHRIST to change your life. But you must TRUST HIM. Meaning that you must first of all BELIEVE that Jesus Christ IS the only begotten Son of God AND that he died for your sins AND that he has the power to change you from within. And once you believe in the power of the Lord and pray for the Lord Jesus Christ to change you, he will change you. He will also give you the gift of the Holy Spirit (the spirit of truth/spirit of spiritual discernment that will let you know what things are truly of God and what things are NOT of God).

And as soon as you fully believe in the Lord Jesus Christ beyond ALL reasonable doubt, you must get immediately baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the ceremonial “washing away of sins”. You don’t have to do it publicly or by a priest. You can do it in a swimming pool, river, lake or your very own bathtub filled with water (because remember that it must be a FULL IMMERSION baptism, according to the bible and NOT a “sprinkling”).

You must then also (to the very best of your ability) obey all of Jesus’s commandments in the bible (including the 10 commandments, the 7th-Day biblical Sabbath (because remember that the “Sunday Sabbath” seen today is NOT biblical at all), the 7 holy feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.), Sermon on the Mount, etc.) and preach the gospel to others to everyone/anyone who’ll listen.

Many Christians today think that the 7th-Day Sabbath was done away with and also that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts were done away with the New Testament as well. But did you know that Jesus Christ and his disciples NOT ONLY participated in the 7th-Day Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) but also in the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) as well? [Some bible scholars even suggest he ALSO participated in the 2 “Minor” Jewish Feasts (Purim & Festival of Lights/Hanukah).

Yeshua/Jesus Christ Himself even said in Matthew 5:17-18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law & the prophets. For I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. 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”. And we know this won’t happen (the first heaven and Earth passing away, that is) until Revelation, chapter 21:1-2! 

But upon believing in and getting baptized in the name of Yeshua/Jesus Christ, you will become a new creature in the Lord and start a NEW LIFE in him! Everything you’ve done in your life so far will not matter, anymore. The only thing that’ll matter from the MOMENT you become saved in Yeshua/Jesus Christ to the moment you die in this life is where you stand with Yeshua/Jesus Christ. And where you stand with Jesus Christ is determined by how you LIVE for Jesus Christ….

For example, do you believe in Jesus Christ? Have you accepted him as Lord & Savior? Have you prayed for forgiveness of your sins? Have you given up your sins and stopped doing them? Have you become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ? Do you witness about Jesus Christ and Salvation to others? Do you do all the things that the Lord Jesus Christ tells you to do (such as obey the 10 commandments and Sermon on the Mount teachings in Matthew5-7 as well as several OTHER New Testament commands? Some possible examples (depending on what the Lord needs from you at the time) might be things like “write a letter of apology to this person, go witness to that person, give the coat off your back to that homeless person over there, donate your leftover food to the food bin”, etc.

Are you in that place in your life where, if you were to die today or tonight, you’d know for 100% sure beyond all reasonable doubt that you’d go to eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday and not the fires of hell? If you are NOT 100% sure, then it’s time for you to examine yourself and your life and pray to the Lord Jesus Christ to reveal to you about anything that’s holding you back from him. Cause lets face it…..5 minutes of sin is not worth eternal condemnation in the fire (“flames of torment”).

One of these days, the Earth and everything in it is gonna pass away someday (including all the material things and wealth). The Lord said in Isaiah 65:17 “Behold, I create a new heavens and a new Earth”.

And all of mankind will be judged for their actions (rather good or bad) by Jesus Christ. Will YOU stand before the Lord Jesus Christ someday on the Day of Judgment upon the Earth and say to him “I’m sorry Lord…during my Earthly life,  my sin was MUCH more important to me than YOU, I don’t want to go to eternal punishment in the “fire that never quenches” now, please forgive me?”

That won’t fly with the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Lord Jesus Christ gives people many, many, MANY chances throughout their lifetimes to change their lives around and to hear the message of the gospel/be saved from their sins! And so IF by the end of a person’s life, a person hasn’t accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior/asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sins with a “righteous repentance” in their mind, heart, body and spirit, that is NOT God’s fault!

Now that begs of question. If people know AHEAD OF TIME that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to New Jerusalem, the ONLY one true God, and the ONLY way to have forgiveness of sins and the ONLY way to be spared from God’s eternal wrath in the fire, why do they still choose to reject him? Why do they STILL choose to go to “eternal condemnation” even when they know that the place of eternal condemnation is going to be an awful, torturous, gruesome place FOR ETERNITY? Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ will spare THEM just because they donated to charity, or never killed anyone and that sort’ve thing?

Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ is a “unrepentant-sin-accepting” type of God? And/or that he’s the type of God to be “sweet-talked” to or to let sin go UNPUNISHED? THINK AGAIN, PEOPLE! Jesus Christ is a righteous, holy, and PURE God! And he lets NO sin into NEW JERUSALEM/the eternal kingdom. None. A person’s “good deeds” or money or good looks will NOT save them from the holy, divine wrath of God!

Yet, many people out there think: “well, Jesus Christ is such a holy, righteous God, there’s NO WAY he’d accept me!” Again, wrong….Jesus Christ will save and accept ANYONE who truly calls upon his name, prays for forgiveness of their sins, repents of their sins, gets baptized in his heavenly name, preaches the gospel to others, obey his commandments in the bible, trusts him & truly abides in him by the way they LIVE for him.

I got a short parable for you. Luke 18:9-14: And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 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. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted”. 

The tax collector was justified before God/Jesus and NOT the Pharisee. Why? Because not only did the tax collector have the faith and desire for Jesus in his life, but he TRUSTED Jesus Christ to change him from within and cleanse his spirit and his ways. The Pharisee just basically bragged about how “holy” he was and lacked a true spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. The Pharisee became one of those in the group of people which Jesus says: “Many 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” – [Matthew 7:22-23]

But to the tax collector and all repentant sinners, Jesus Christ will say: “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” – [Matthew 25:21]

But basically, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done so far in your life. It doesn’t matter if you’ve robbed 5 banks or 75. It doesn’t matter if you’re currently addicted to drugs or alcohol. It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper or a drug lord. Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for ALL of mankind’s sins! And no sin is too great for the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit! He can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and help change them into a RIGHTEOUS PERSON! 

Jesus Christ will save ANYONE who truly calls upon his name from the depths of their being. No prayer will go unanswered for those who really, truly pray to get to know Jesus Christ and that means the prayer from the depths of their spirit!

But if you want to get to know Jesus Christ and have him save you FROM YOUR SINS and help you overcome your sins and your addictions, you must pray for Jesus Christ to save you and you must do so, NOW! (And believe the prayer with your whole entire mind, heart, and spirit). Every SECOND of your life spent without Jesus Christ leads you one step closer to hell and/or eternal condemnation. And like I said, death comes to us all. We NEVER know when we’re gonna die. All those who die without Jesus Christ in their lives go to eternal condemnation in the flames for eternity. So please don’t be one of those people, folks!

If you’re an atheist/agnostic that’s having trouble believing in Jesus Christ or God or the concept of a God, then I would ask you to PRAY to believe (but mean the prayer 100% in your heart) and also check out the following website that lists SEVERAL ancient historical non-Christian sources which confirm Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection and consequent ascension to heaven.

And again, I pray that each and every soul who reads this will become saved from their sins in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ before it’s too late. Amen.
