Question: In your article The Ashkenzazim, you explain that Ashklenazi Jews are descendants of Ashkenazic Khazarians. Have you seen the video by David Duke that dispels this theory. He cited 12 studies, and said there were 100’s of studies that refute it. He stated that he once believed in the Khazar theory too, but it was a theory that was meant to convince people the Jews of today were not a race. He made a convincing argument and had references to back it up. Thought that if anyone would know about Jewish history, David Duke would as he has clearly spent a lifetime studying the Jews, and of course he is a favorite target of the media. Your thoughts, please.
Answer: All lies and fabrications.
1) Jews today are NOT a race, even though they are pretending to be Hebrews. See The Hebrew Disease. How David Duke (and others) can have the intellectual courage to utter such nonsense is beyond comprehension, especially as a cursory look perusing the web can show anyone the diverse “looks” or “ethnicities” amongst those who call themselves “Jews.”
Their racial make up is not homogeneous. There are Ashkenazic, Sephardic, Samaritan, African, European, Chinese, and Indian Jews, who adhere to the Pharisaism religion, which today is known as Judaism.
2) Saying with a straight face that there are HUNDREDS of studies that position Judaism as indicative of a race adds insult to injury. Besides, none of the studies David Duke pointed at mentioned a) the Bible b) Jesus’s prophecies concerning the destruction of the Hebrews, and c) the historical records of Josephus and Tacitus in reference to the annihilation of the Hebrew race in 70 A.D.
No accurate study on the Hebrews can be deemed complete without referring to these aforementioned documents. It doesn’t matter who those people are that did those “hundreds of studies,” and it doesn’t matter that David Duke spent an eternity studying the Jews. The absence of biblical documents alone is enough to raise the red flag of suspicion. Besides, doing a study on Jews is totally different than doing a study on Hebrews.
3) There are many books by Jewish authors that confirm and agree with the Khazar reality. Two stand out: The Invention of the Jewish People by Shlomo Sand and The Thirteenth Tribe by Arthur Koestler. See a more inclusive list in our Resources section.
In other words, many Jews are telling us they’re Ashkenazic Khazarians, while some non-Jews like David Duke are telling us differently. Silly, isn’t it?
4) It would not be farfetched to consider David Duke as controlled opposition supported by Zionist Jews, not unlike Israel with its backing of MidEast terrorists or the FBI when it wagged the Klu Klux Klan via informants.
As a matter of fact, because of his history in confronting Jews in the media, what better person to posit such theory than David Duke? He would appear “beyond reproach” in his lies.
Keep in mind that, in this day and age, Zionist Jews control the flow of information via publishing and media. Thus they have the means and power to distort the bible, manipulate history, fabricate any study or studies, and buy anyone in order to spread their fake Hebrewness, which allows them to hold on to stolen Palestinian land and not appear as impostors, liars, and criminals. They have a lot at stake.
Question #1: In your opinion what is the single, most dangerous thing plaguing America today?
Answer #1: American politicians. They’re nothing but political whores who have sold out their country to special interests.
Today, the most pernicious of all the special interests is the Jewish-Israeli lobby AIPAC, which continuously bribes all American politicians, Republicans and Democrats alike, in order to keep Israel’s faulty foundation from crumbling, and to maintain a Jewish stranglehold on the Federal Reserve.
In other words, US politicians are being wagged to strengthen the twin linchpins of Jewish control of America: Israel and the Federal Reserve.
The Fed dominates all American financial institutions through their unconstitutional power to issue money; while Israel’s spy agency, the Mossad, spies on American politicians, blackmailing them with their dirty laundry at the same time that AIPAC bribes them, thereby securing Jewish dominance over the US Dollar, the world’s current reserve currency.
Question #2: Should we allow the falsely named ‘Jews’ of this world to run our financial institutions?
Answer #2: Like Jesus we say, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” Money is controlled by the principalities of Hell, so they gave control of these financial institutions to the ones who look like them.
When God thinks true Christians, with no vanity and selfishness in their hearts, are ready to take control of these financial institutions and turn them around, He will kick out the money changers and their demons like He did in the Jerusalem Temple. All in good time.
Question: Your VIEWS OF NEWS section is full of conspiracy theories. Why?
Answer: Why not? Somebody needs to unmask those who are conspiring. Oh, so you don’t believe there are people conspiring? Well, let’s see.
What does a conspiracy need? Two or more people or groups, plus an agenda.
Are there two or more people or groups conspiring somewhere to take political and economical advantage of many important issues?
One would be a fool not to believe so.
The problem is that you’ve been brainwashed to see “conspiracy” as the work of lone nuts outside the government. That way those within government, who are being wagged by special interest groups, can go on conspiring to make specific agendas a reality, while pointing their fingers at “lone nuts” and their “conspiracy theories.”
Wake up! because even though we can only theorize by analyzing and linking facts and events, conspiracies are quite real.
Question: Do you think the lottery winnings are controlled by God or Satan, or is it just chance? Is it okay for a Christian once in a while to play the lottery in a non-addictive way?
Answer: a) Gambling is never a good proposition because its twin sibling is called addiction, and all addicts are blind to their own addiction.
b) It is NOT a question of whether the Lottery is controlled by God or Satan – and by the way Jesus is in control of everything, even if the dark forces sub-manage or sub-control certain aspects of life, their sub-control ultimately fits God’s purpose. The REAL question is: what is YOUR motivation for playing the lottery?
Is it Greed? Do you want to be a Millionaire?
90% of the time, the motivation is always the love of Money or people trying to avoid work, the anti-theses of everything the word of God teaches – for example: “you have to work to eat,” “the love of money is the root of all evil,” etc.
Are you free to play as a Christian? Sure.
But is it beneficial?
“ ‘I have the right to do anything,’ you say–but not everything is beneficial. ‘I have the right to do anything’ – but not everything is constructive.” 1 Corinthians 10:23
“Better is a little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and turmoil with it.” Proverbs 15:16
However, if you are going through a rough time, and somehow, some way God whispers in your ear to drop a buck on a ticket and you end up winning, then all power to you! Still, the flip side is addiction through which you may end up losing a lot more.
Question: Luke 21:24 clearly states that “Jerusalem would be trodden down of the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Jerusalem fell in 70 A.D. and was in the hands of the Gentiles for 1897 years until Israel, the modern state, took control of it, thereby fulfilling the prophecy in the Scripture. So how come you don’t acknowledge that while ignoring the true biblical context of its occurrence?
Answer: The reason we don’t acknowledge it is because we don’t acknowledge lies from the pit of hell.
1. Jerusalem was NEVER the capital of the ancient kingdom of Israel, but of Judah. And Jews today are not of the tribe of Judah.
2. Jerusalem was trodden down by the Gentiles (i.e., by the Romans) in 70 A.D. However, when the Gentiles or the Romans were done trodden it down (i.e., until their time was fulfilled), they left it be. That verse has nothing to do with modern-day Israel. See Bad Translation #15.
3. Biblically, Jews today are classified as Gentiles or Goyim, because they’re NOT Hebrews – all Hebrews are irrevocably dead. A Gentile is a non-Hebrew person, just like Jews today. So on that point alone you have built your belief on a fallacy.
The Ashkenazim misappropriated the name Jews in the 18th Century in order to appear Hebrews and steal Palestine with a view to turning the Arab country into their new homeland, following the loss of their country Khazaria.
“The LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight… And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.” 2 Kings 17:18,20
Unfortunately, these deceivers have on payroll many preachers, who spew out their demonic bile to brainwash folks like you.
4. It’s time to renew your mind and unwash your brain – unless you’re basking in ignorance’s bliss and prefer to stay blind to the truth by providing your own context to the word of God, or by blindly swallowing context that was provided for you by deceivers and mammonists.
Question #1: Why is fornication a sin against one’s own body?
Answer #1: Once you become a Christian, it is not just your soul that is given to God but your body as well.
God intended sex for husband and wife to produce children, itself a great spiritual act whereby God is working with mankind to fill the earth. However, fornication is sex outside these God-given parameters.
By fornicating, itself a selfish pleasure, the body is thus defiled, because the commandment of God regarding sex is made of no effect and DEBASED (or defiled), which in turn defiles the body that commits it.
There’s no other circumstance where one uses his whole body to sin thus.
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind…” Romans 12:1-2
Question #2: Does the Greek word porneia really translate as fornication? Because some sources do translate it as prostitution, as in sex for money.
If so, isn’t Matthew 19:9 wrong when it says, “Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.”
Shouldn’t it be “except it be for prostitution“?
Answer #2: The Greek word porneia derives from porneno, which has a literal meaning of “indulging lust,” and which is also the root word for the English word porno. So it’s not just sex for money, though it is translated as both “fornication” and “harlotry.”
Fornication (i.e., playing the harlot) is the indulgence of unlawful lust for selfish pleasure, whereas harlotry or prostitution is the indulgence of unlawful lust for money. Their common core is the indulgence of lust. See Of Fornication, Divorce, And Adultery.
Consequently, Matthew 19:9 is perfectly translated as is. See some real Bad Translation.
Question #3: Matthew 5:32 says that, “Whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery.”
Shouldn’t we construe that the cause of fornication in that passage is the same as the cause of fornication in this Deuteronomy 22 passage:
23 If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and he sleeps with her, 24 you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death—the young woman because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the man because he violated another man’s wife. You must purge the evil from among you.
In other words, the only time a man can put away his woman is when she’s betrothed and commits sexual immorality or fornication, and not when she’s actually married. Besides, that would help stem the tide in our divorce-obsessed culture.
Answer #3: You’re wrong. It’s NOT the only time.
First, Jesus said, “except for fornication.” Period. He didn’t say, “except for fornication during betrothal.”
“Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.” Proverbs 30:6
You’re the one who added “betrothal” by making strange connections with unrelated biblical circumstances.
Second, that Deuteronomy passage is very well defined with a specific situation, as opposed to the passage in Matthew which doesn’t confirm a Deuteronomy-type circumstance.
Third, you are insinuating that the Deuteronomy passage is the only instance of fornication within a “marriage” context that can happen. Wrong.
“It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife.” 1 Corinthians 5:1
Paul was very explicit in that verse, and just because the Matthew verse you quoted is not as categorical doesn’t automatically make it Deuteronomy-like. If it were, Jesus would have made it very clear.
And finally fourth, you totally neglected this other passage from Deuteronomy 22: 13-21:
“If a man takes a wife and, after sleeping with her, dislikes her and slanders her and gives her a bad name, saying, “I married this woman, but when I approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity,” then the young woman’s father and mother shall bring to the town elders at the gate proof that she was a virgin…
“If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the young woman’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done an outrageous thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil from among you.”
That woman, who committed fornication while betrothed, ended up fully married when she was discovered, and the law demanded that she be executed.
However, Jesus removed the death penalty from that law when He told the accusers of the adulteress: “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7)
Still, He commanded the adulteress in John 8:11 to “go and sin no more (i.e., go and cut off the unlawful relationship).” And in the case of a married woman who fornicates, instead of death He said “to put her away, for the cause of fornication (Matthew 5:32).”
Consequently, now, instead of the death penalty, they get a chance to repent, sin no more, and cut off their unlawful relationships as the new way of purging evil, because evil still needs to be expurgated before facing God on judgment day.
“If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.” Matthew 5:30
Question #1: Weren’t the moral laws that today come close to being part of the conscience of educated men and women everywhere in part spread by Socrates who was sentenced to the hemlock nearly 2,500 years ago?
Answer #1: In actuality, the true moral law that governs today’s societies is Jesus Christ’s new commandment to Love One Another, a decree that is a summary of the 10 Moral Laws or Commandments God gave us thousands of years before Socrates.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34
Prior to Christ, it was extremely difficult for anyone to love one another. With Jesus’s sacrifice on the Cross, His resurrection, and the Advent of the Holy Spirit, applying such moral law became much easier.
Every religion or philosophy, which espouses loving one another and good will towards man, whether aware of it or not, has benefited from Jesus’s new commandment, which is the foundation of Christian enlightenment.
“And when everything is subject to Christ, then the Son Himself will also be subject to the One who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all. ” 1 Corinthians 15:28
Question #2: Just read The 11 Commandments article. Your 11th commandment has replaced the 10. The 10 were abolished. See Hebrews 8:13 for details.
Answer #2: It wasn’t the commandments that were abolished, but the covenant that God made with the Houses of Israel and Judah.
“‘Behold, days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them,’ declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 31:31,32
The Hebrews did not follow God’s commandments, and thus broke their covenant with God. So God chose a new people (Christians) who would obey His commandments and made a NEW covenant with them.
“When He said, ‘A new covenant,’ He has made the first obsolete.” Hebrews 8:13
However, the new covenant still contains all of God’s enduring commandments.
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15
Careful, you sound like you don’t love God. See The Heart Adjustment.
Question: Where did the Christian clergy get their fancy ecclesiastical titles from? Obviously not from the bible.
Answer: Correct. They did not get them from the bible.
Contrary to the Lord’s command, so-called “church leaders” have given themselves fancy titles like Reverend, Monsignor, Pope, and Pastor.
Reverend comes from the word Revere, meaning Worship; Monsignor is from the Italian word Monsignore, meaning My Lord; Pope is from the Greek word Pappas, meaning Father; and finally Pastor comes from the Latin Pastor, meaning Shepherd.
“The Lord is my Shepherd.” Psalm 23:1
Pride and arrogance could not be any clearer. Jesus called His disciples to be servants. Period.
“Whoever would be great among you must be your servant.” Matthew 20:26
Question #1: Just wondering if the term Jew was translated correctly from the Koran, and if Saudi Arabia was really founded by Jews.
Answer #1: We’re not experts on the Koran, but we believe Muhammad actually wrote Judahites/Jehudites, or in Arabic Yahoodi which is close to the Hebrew Yehuwdiy – wrongfully translated as Jews, same error as in the translated bible.
There’s also a lot of propaganda about Saudi Arabians being Jews, don’t fall for it.
It’s all to muddy the water and redirect the so-called hatred Jews “think” people have towards them unto the Arabs – hatred, if it truly exists, was caused by Jews themselves: their theft of Palestine, their horrendous treatment of the Palestinians, their Apartheid regime in Israel, their misappropriation of the word Jew to appear Hebrews when they’re not, their unconstitutional control of the Federal Reserve to enrich and empower themselves, their countless crimes throughout history, etc.
Remember, the brainwashing has been quite extensive, so it might take a bit of time to see clearly.
Question #2: I want to understand why the Koran mentions the Jews or Judahites, yet we are led to believe that they were wiped out in 70 AD, 600ish years earlier. I suspect that the so called self-styled Jews want us to believe that there was no break in transmission from 70 AD onward. Could you please elaborate?
Your site has opened my eyes and I am eternally grateful. Thanks and keep up the good work.
Answer #2: Thanks for your encouragement. As to your inquiry,
1) Jews are NOT Judahites.
2) Here’s what we plucked out of Wikipedia: “The Quran assumes familiarity with major narratives recounted in the Biblical scriptures. It summarizes some, dwells at length on others and, in some cases, presents alternative accounts and interpretations of events.”
Basically, when Muhammad wrote about the Judahites, centuries after their existence, he was recounting and commenting on biblical occurrences, just like the Apostles did, in writing, decades after Jesus went up to heaven.
Remember, Muslims believe in Jesus, albeit not as fully as we Christians do, but belief it is nonetheless. As a matter of fact, every year the world’s biggest decorated Christmas tree is not found in “Christian” America but in Muslim Dubai.
Consequently, we don’t think the use of the word Judahite in the Quran has anything to do with today’s self-styled Jews.
Question #3: Why don’t you have anything extensive about Islam? Like you do about Judaism?
Answer #3: For the same reason we don’t have anything about Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. We preach the ONLY truth: pure Christianity. That’s enough to get all those of different faiths to ponder on what they should adhere to.
“They shall raise their voices against the serpents (or malicious ones)…” Mark 16:17
Therefore, we must be obedient to God and raise our voices to warn of the destruction that follows in the wake of Zionist Jews:
- They were the Bolsheviks that destroyed Russia.
- They fomented 2 World Wars and destroyed Europe.
- They stole Palestine and destroyed the Middle East.
- They are the neocons who are destroying the Republican Party.
- They took over the Democratic Party and destroyed it.
- They took over the Federal Reserve and destroyed the US Dollar.
- They took over Hollywood and the media and destroyed American culture.
- They took over the US Congress and are destroying America.
Question #1: I like your website very much. I am trying to understand your position that there are no longer any Semitic Jews, but am struggling with what I have been taught: that the majority of Jews who did not return to Judah, but remained in Babylon and lived there for many generations before being removed in the 1930s by the Iraqi government (or whatever Iraq was called at that time). The descendants of these people would be Semitic, yes? I do agree that the vast majority of people who call themselves Jews today are descendants of proselytized peoples into Judaism. How to reconcile this issue please?
Answer #1: Thank you. Now to your inquiry.
a) In Separda of the Babylonian Empire, where the Judahites were captives, very few stayed behind as the vast majority went back home as commanded by God, and with the earthly edict issued by King Cyrus of Babylon himself.
Those few who stayed behind intermarried with Persians and Medes. So they were no longer Hebrews as the Hebraic blood had become extremely diluted, especially if one takes into consideration thousands of years of marrying non-Hebrews. Anyway, would you call a Mulatto a White person? Nope, you wouldn’t. So, nope, they’re NOT Judahites.
Many people from Separda converted to the faith of the Judahites, and, along with the few mixed-bloods, are known today as Sephardic Jews.
b) The Jews of Iraq are descendants of the Ninevites who converted through the prophet Jonah. They became known as Karaites or Karaite Jews. Nineveh is now part of Iraq. These Jews were NOT deported. The Zionists ran a fearmongering campaign to drive them out of Iraq so they could have more Jews in Palestine, where there were 95% more Palestinians than Jews. The Zionists needed Jewish bodies there in order to steal the country and create the abomination called modern-day Israel.
c) If there are Semitic Jews today, they would be Arabs and would constitute a very tiny minority.
Question #2: Could you elaborate on the passage where it says “to the Judahite first and then to the Gentile”? The way a lot of pastors and commentaries explain it sounds wrong. Is it because Jesus came from them and was speaking particularly to those alive at that time?
Answer #2: Correct. Because there are no more Judahites, and Jews today are not Judahite Hebrews. A Gentile is a non-Hebrew, just like Jews. In fact, Ashkenazic and Sephardic Jews are the original, classified biblical Gentiles.
In addition, if not most importantly, Jesus wanted to make sure the Judahites were reached as soon as possible, so He could shut down the Old Covenant, bring about the end of the age of Satan’s dominion upon the earth, and allow free rein to the New Covenant. That admonition from Romans 1:16 wasn’t a matter of favoritism, but of urgency.
“God does not show favoritism.” Romans 2:11
See Where Is Satan Now? for the Sequence Of Events.
Question: If Jews are not Hebrews, how come Israelis speak Hebrew? Doesn’t that prove their Hebraic heritage?
Answer: No, it doesn’t prove their Hebraic heritage.
1) Non-Hebraic Rabbinists (followers of the Babylonian Talmud) have been using the “Jew” appellation since the late 18th Century in order to appear to be Judahite Hebrews – see How The Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West.
That way people could see them as the Chosen People, while they endeavored to steal Palestine and create modern-day Israel without the objection of the Christian world, especially since they were Eastern-European Nomads seeking a new country following the loss of their homeland Khazaria.
Then they – who originally spoke Yiddish – resurrected the dead Hebrew tongue after thousands of years in the dustbin of oblivion to make it Israel’s official language. In so doing, they consolidated in the world’s mind the impression that they were Hebrews rightfully returning home, when in fact they were not.
However, in their lust to deceive the world they got blindsided and completely overlooked the fact that, following the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel in 721 B.C., not even the Hebrews spoke Hebrew. They spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus.
That’s why Mel Gibson made the movie The Passion of The Christ in that dialect. In turn, the Jews became furious – still on a vendetta against him – because Mel made them look ridiculous, especially as they wanted to be seen as “kinsmen” of Jesus, which they’re absolutely not. See Are Jews the Israelites of the Bible?
Further, as Jewish land thieves disembarked in Palestine in the 1940s to seize Palestinian lands and homes that Zionist terrorist groups – such as the Irgun, the Stern gang, and Haganah – had stolen in order to turn the country into Israel, they adopted Hebrew names to complete their “Hebraization” process – not unlike what they did when they scattered throughout Europe and America and assumed European surnames. See Israel: Land of Impostors
2) Are all people in countries where English is spoken of English descent? No. Were all Catholics who celebrated mass in Latin Romans? No. A spoken language is not indicative of a person’s ancestry.
Question: Why don’t you tell us just one thing that religion has revealed about the universe? Just one.
Answer: We don’t know about religions, we know about our God who is the Maker of heaven and earth (Psalm 115:15), or the Universe as you call it. That’s the first revelation.
Second, the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah and the Advent of the Holy Spirit drastically changed the world. From that point in history nothing has been the same.
The Holy Spirit of Christ has been inspiring the world forward through dazzling innovations and technological achievements, not to mention the fact that the backward thinking of pagan civilizations has been wiped out by Christian mores.
Where were all these achievements before Christ? Nowhere. The civilization you’re living in is known as Christian Western Civilization, which has impacted the entire globe.
Is that revealing enough for you?
Question #1: What is the Bible’s definition of marriage?
Answer #1: Biblical Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman, who join as one for the purpose of making children, with God-assigned authorities, the parents on both sides, agreeing to the union of their offspring.
Question #2: Does sex between two virgins living together create a marriage?
Answer #2: Did you enter into a marriage covenant with each other? Unless it’s marriage, it’s a sin. And did you get her and your fathers’ blessings?
“Thus says the Lord of hosts: Because you have obeyed the command of Jonadab your father and kept all his precepts and done all that he commanded you, therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: Jonadab the son of Rechab shall never lack a man to stand before me.” Jeremiah 35:18,19
Besides, would you like it if a boy shacked up with your daughter for his personal pleasure as if she were a whore? See The Biblical Marriage Blueprint.
Question #3: Numbers 36:6, “This is the thing which the LORD doth command concerning the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them marry to whom they think best; only to the family of the tribe of their father shall they marry.”
This verse directly tells fathers to let their daughters marry who they think best. But you can’t add that to the article The Biblical Marriage Blueprint because it destroys most of the arguments you are trying to make.
Answer #3: It must feel good taking verses out of context.
Unless ANYONE is the daughter of Zelophehad, which is impossible since they no longer exist, that verse is being misappropriated.
In addition, Zelophehad was dead and had no son, so there were no close male family members to give his girls in marriage as per biblical customs; therefore, God allowed his daughters to make the decision themselves when suitors would come asking for their hands in marriage.
That’s why we have that “rare situation” clause in the article’s conclusion. Today, the Holy Spirit has been given to us as the Helper who guides in these types of decisions, because each one of those “rare situations” will be different.
Further, having a male family member green light a woman’s potential husband is for her own protection. The biblical authority structure is an umbrella that covers and protects those who seek its shelter.
Christians have a bad habit of taking these kinds of “targeted” verses and applying them to themselves or to other circumstances. WRONG!
In the bible, when God uses commands that are directed to particular individuals or circumstances, especially when they digress from the norm, He also provides the grace and covering for them to be valid ONLY to said individuals and circumstances.
And when these particular commands are misappropriated, a mess is sure to ensue – like in the Middle East, as converted Jews, having falsely crowned themselves God’s chosen people, stole Palestine under the pretense of being the Hebrews of the bible and created more than just chaos in the region.
Question #4: In the article Can A Man Have Many Wives?, you write that a woman has to simply accept her lot if her husband does not want a child.
What about Tamar in Genesis, who posed as a prostitute and slept with her father-in-law Judah in order to have a child?
The Bible does not record any disapproval of Tamar and she thereby became part of the ancestry of Jesus Christ himself.
Judah blamed himself, and well he should have. Tamar’s desperate act was Judah’s fault, for failing to give her his third son in marriage.
Answer #4: At that time a certain Old Testament law was in Tamar’s favor. It demanded that the brother of a deceased husband give the deceased brother an heir if the deceased did not have one, which Tamar’s late husband did not.
“If brothers dwell together, and one of them dies, and has no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry outside unto a stranger: her husband’s brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him as wife, and perform the duty of a husband’s brother unto her.” Deuteronomy 25:5
So, to conform to that particular law God Himself required, and only after being rejected by her late husband’s family to fulfill that law, she guilefully, though justly, labored to obtain justice as you so aptly described.
Consequently, she got herself pregnant by her father-in-law and thus provided an heir for her late husband. Her action was NOT to satiate her own yearning, but to fulfill God’s law. In turn, her selflessness earned her a place in Jesus’s genealogy.
Is your argument within the context of that law? Obviously not.
Then don’t compare apples with oranges.
Too many Christians have that bad habit: taking something out of a targeted and directed circumstance, and arbitrarily repackaging it for another circumstance that has nothing to do with the original intent.
Question #5: Can one marry one’s cousin?
Answer #5: There’s nowhere in the bible where God forbids it. Forbidden marital/sexual relationships are very well delineated in Leviticus chapter 18:
7 “‘Do not dishonor your father by having sexual relations with your mother. She is your mother; do not have relations with her.
8 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your father’s wife; that would dishonor your father.
9 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your sister, either your father’s daughter or your mother’s daughter, whether she was born in the same home or elsewhere.
10 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter; that would dishonor you.
11 “‘Do not have sexual relations with the daughter of your father’s wife, born to your father; she is your sister.
12 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your father’s sister; she is your father’s close relative.
13 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your mother’s sister, because she is your mother’s close relative.
14 “‘Do not dishonor your father’s brother by approaching his wife to have sexual relations; she is your aunt.
15 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your daughter-in-law. She is your son’s wife; do not have relations with her.
16 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your brother’s wife; that would dishonor your brother.
17 “‘Do not have sexual relations with both a woman and her daughter. Do not have sexual relations with either her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter; they are her close relatives. That is wickedness.
18 “‘Do not take your wife’s sister as a rival wife and have sexual relations with her while your wife is living.
19 “‘Do not approach a woman to have sexual relations during the uncleanness of her monthly period.
20 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife and defile yourself with her.
21 “‘Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.
22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.
Question: I know your article Can A Man Have Many Wives? is all true, but as a woman it makes me feel a little icky. Mostly because of the underlying feeling that men just want to have lots of sex with many women, which isn’t of God but of the world. So I remember, “For your Maker is your husband– the LORD Almighty is his name.” The spiritual ecstasy we will know in heaven will far surpass the sensual gratification we get here. Plus, the idea of many wives probably doesn’t work nowadays in our sex-obsessed culture, but it does make for entertaining reality t.v.
Answer: Ironically, in biblical times when man could have many wives there was no sex-obsessed culture. The western sex-obsessed culture has selfishness at its root: “Me, me, me. Pleasure, pleasure, pleasure.”
Maybe if man could have many wives in the West, it’d help get rid of that obsession, because having several wives with various children is hard work. Consequently, the selfishness of pleasure for pleasure’s sake would be far from his mind, since he’d be too busy providing for so many individuals within his household. So why belittle such a God-appointed possibility just because you don’t like the idea?
In addition, if the thought of a potential husband having sex with his many wives makes a woman feel icky, she likewise has selfishness at the root of her disposition: “I want my man all to myself. Tough luck, if I can’t give him the children he wants.”
It’s a shame that in one breath you praise God, and in another you curse a system He’s put in place by a) saying that a man having sex with his many wives is not from God, when you already affirmed that everything in the article is true, and b) debasing God’s allowance for man to have many wives to the level of reality TV.
“A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:8
Question: In your article Is Christmas Pagan? you seem to purposefully overlook bible verses that specifically command us that we not bring a tree into our homes and affix it with silver and gold.
Answer: Here’s the passage you mentioned but was afraid to quote because it has nothing to do with Christmas trees. IN CONTEXT from Jeremiah 10:
³ For the customs of the peoples are delusion; Because it is wood cut from the forest, The work of the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool. 4 ″They decorate it with silver and with gold; They fasten it with nails and with hammers So that it will not totter. 5 ″Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field are they, And they cannot speak; They must be carried, Because they cannot walk! Do not fear them, For they can do no harm, Nor can they do any good.”
God is talking about GODS that the nations made out of wood, as in STATUES, as in “work of the hands of a CRAFTSMAN with a CUTTING TOOL,” that they fell down to and worshiped.
They decorated them with gold and silver, like Buddhists do with the statue of Buddha or Hindus with the statues of their gods?
No wonder you didn’t quote the verse but alluded to it, because, in your prejudicial spirit, you wanted to misuse the word of God for your own propagandist agenda.
Here’s Jeremiah concluding in chapter 10 verses 8-10:
“But they are altogether stupid and foolish In their discipline of delusion– their idol is wood! Beaten silver is brought from Tarshish, And gold from Uphaz, The work of a craftsman and of the hands of a goldsmith; Violet and purple are their clothing; They are all the work of skilled men. But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King.”
Shame on you for taking God’s word and twisting it!
Question: Does God forbid race mixing? Miscegenation?
Answer: No, God does not.
He forbade the Hebrews to do so, only because the other nations did not follow Jehovah.
“Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, For they will turn your sons away from following Me to serve other gods; then the anger of the LORD will be kindled against you and He will quickly destroy you.” Deuteronomy 7:3
With the New Covenant, the same concern still holds.
“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers.” 2 Corinthians 6:14
Thus, it’s a matter of FAITH, not of race.
“There is neither Judahite nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28
Still, when it comes to marriage, fathers are the ones God put in charge. They decide what’s best for their children.
“Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged and that it may go well with you.” Deuteronomy 5:16
“Thus says the Lord of hosts: Because you have obeyed the command of Jonadab your father and kept all his precepts and done all that he commanded you, therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: Jonadab the son of Rechab shall never lack a man to stand before me.” Jeremiah 35:18,19
Question #1: Why do Zionist Jews (or Israel) want JUST Palestine? Why not Jordan or Syria?
Question #2: What do you say to Zionists who affirm that Palestine never existed?
Answer #2: We say the following:
a. they’re liars who take other people for idiots;
c. they themselves call the people they’re enslaving through Apartheid, Palestinians (Duh!);
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.” – Jesus in John 10:10
Nothing describes the Zionists better.
Question #1: Why do many Christians fall on their knees to Israel in respect for the so called “God’s Chosen”? Correct me if I am wrong. Those who believe in Jesus as the son of God are now “God’s Chosen.” I can’t understand why Christians are not taught this.
Answer #1: Figuratively, many “Christians” do fall on their knees in respect to converted Jews and Israel, even though they are taught that Christians are the new chosen people – chosen to love, to do good, and to spread peace.
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood.” 1 Peter 2:9
At the same time, they are also taught by unscrupulous preachers that God has two covenants simultaneously at play, one for Christians and another one for Jews, never quoting the truth of the bible that says quite the opposite.
“By calling this covenant new, he has made the first one obsolete and what is obsolete is outdated.” Hebrews 8:13
In addition, those preachers don’t teach their congregations that Jews today are not the Hebrews of the Bible, that the Old Covenant was never for those who converted but for those of Hebraic blood only, that all Hebrews are irrevocably dead, and that the word Jew is not even in the bible.
Question #2: Are you claiming that the Old Covenant was only with the chosen ethnic Hebrews, while the non-ethnics stood by and watched in exclusion?
God’s covenants have never had ethnic dependencies. From the very beginning, faith and obedience have been the sole covenant requisites.
Answer #2: The purpose of the Old Covenant with the ancient Hebrews (mind you) was to bring forth the Messiah, who Himself was a pure Hebrew of the tribe of Judah. Therefore, the Old Covenant was purely ethnic-centered.
“The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, ‘These are the regulations for the Passover meal: No foreigner may eat it.’ ” Exodus 12:43
However, proselytism within the Old Covenant was allowed and was different from the Covenant itself. That’s why Jesus told the converted Samaritans, who also worshiped Jehovah just like the Hebrews:
“You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from Judah.” John 4:22
What Jesus meant was that Salvation would come about and bear fruit out of the Old Covenant, with Jesus Himself, a pure Judahite Hebrew, being the Salvation.
Now with the New Covenant things are totally different. It’s no longer ethnic-centered.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES: first to the Judahite, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16
The purpose of the New Covenant is to prepare and deliver a new chosen people throughout all the nations of the earth, who will become a spiritual bride for the Messiah.
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood.” 1 Peter 2:9
“And in your seed [Jesus] all the families of the earth shall be blessed…” Genesis 26: 4
“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready.” Revelation 19:7-9
In other words, the Old Covenant brought forth the Groom, while the New will bring forth the Bride.
Question #1: From a Christian perspective, how should we view the religion of Islam?
Answer #1: First, Christians must understand what Islam stands for. Muslims believe in Jehovah, and accept that Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, was only a prophet to the ancient Israelites, was not crucified to death, went to heaven without dying, and is expected to return soon.
Second, Christians must pray for and reach out to Muslims IN LOVE in order to correct the misconception they currently have about Jesus, especially about His godship, death, and resurrection. And more importantly, they should dispel any hatred of Muslims Zionist-compromised “preachers” have been teaching.
The Christian mandate is LOVE. “Love one another.” “Love your neighbor.” “Love your enemy.”
That’s the view.
Question #2: Some churches preach “one ocean, many boats,” an attitude towards the gift of salvation made possible by Jesus that it denies that people even must accept His way of life before their death, that indeed such people think that Jesus will gladly welcome Muslims into heaven. Where do you stand?
Answer #2: True Christians, who follow God’s commandments, will make it into heaven right after death. In addition, many non-Christians, including Muslims, whose moral lives resemble those of true Christians, will also make it; though they’ll have to wait Judgment Day to find out.
However, many so-called Christians, who don’t follow God’s commandments, won’t attain it; because salvation is not a robotically regurgitated prayer that pays lip service to the Lord. It is obedience to His commandments.
“For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified.” Romans 2:13
Jesus came to be the Savior of the whole world (i.e., He came to spur all men, without exception, into duplicating His way and His life by following His commandments).
“We have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.” 1 Timothy 4:10
For a more thorough understanding of what salvation in Christ really is, go there.
And the actual process of salvation is clearly explained there.
Question: Isn’t religion the bane of human existence?
Answer: Religion, as some interpret and use it, may be. However, a personal relationship with God through Christ Jesus is not. It’s the salvation and redemption of man’s soul.
Religion is man-made with earthly rules and agendas. A relationship with Christ is not. They are two different concepts.
Besides, imagine a world without Christian love and compassion. That would be the bane of human existence.
Question #1: There are 56 Nations with Islamic majorities, 49 with Catholic majorities, 20 with Protestant majorities, 12 with Orthodox majorities, and 4 with Hindu majorities. Shouldn’t there be 1 with a Jewish majority? In other words, shouldn’t Israel exist?
Answer #1: No.
a. When you take the entire land of Palestine, which the Jews have stolen to create Israel, the Palestinians (Christians and Muslims) constitute a majority, not Jews. That’s why it’s an Apartheid state.
Besides, very few countries, if any, impose religious conformity within their borders or turn the religion of the majority into a mandatory state religion which everyone must follow.
In the US, it’s forbidden by the constitution to have a state religion. If tomorrow the US decides to become a Christian-only country, the Jews would be the first to cry foul, while they hypocritically do the same with Pharisaism in Apartheid Israel.
b. Being part of a religious group does not entitle one to a country. The following religions (just to name a few) have none:
c. Judaism is Pharisaism, not an Abrahamic religion. Today’s Jews are NOT Hebrews (all HEBREWS are irrevocably DEAD), hence they have no right to the land of Palestine. Those who believe otherwise suffer from the Chosen People Syndrome.
d. No country has a “right to exist.” People have that right, and people can exist anywhere. Cases in point: when the Soviet Union was dissolved, its people continued to exist without the “Soviet” moniker, while the US is inhabited by people who gave up their countries of origin in order to make a fresh start in a new land.
Question #2: Wasn’t Israel created as an act of reparation for what the Jews went through during World War 2?
Answer #2: No.
Israel has been in the planning since the late 18th century, way before World War 2 – a war that was orchestrated by Zionist Jews in order to 1) favor their fellow Jewish bankers who stood to make a “killing” loaning money to Western Governments to wage war, and 2) finally give birth to Israel.
And what’s with this “act of reparation” business? Stealing another people’s country in the Middle East, which had nothing to do with what was going on in Europe at that time, is what you call act of reparation? Is that your sense of justice?
Besides, who’s going to pay acts of reparation to the Palestinians for what they have suffered at the hands of the Jews? Who?
Question #3: Wasn’t Israel as a country sanctioned by the United Nations? And doesn’t that make it legitimate?
Answer #3: No and no.
Most countries of the world were bribed and bullied by Britain and the US to shamelessly recommend the partition of Palestine at the United Nations in 1947, though the resolution of said recommendation was non-binding and never implemented by the Security Council.
Question #4: First, Israel won their lands by right of conquest, the oldest and most salient form of land acquisition; therefore yours is an infantile argument. Second, Palestine was a creation of the Roman Emperor Hadrian. But you don’t know that because you obviously don’t know history.
Answer #4: First, as per your argument, it’s okay for China today, for instance, to invade the US in order to acquire more land and expand its Empire, since the right of conquest is the most salient form of land acquisition. And then when Chinese folks begin to take over your home and the homes of other Americans, no one should utter a word. Yours is the argument of a THIEF!
“You shall not steal.” Exodus 20:15
Second, every nation on earth was started at some point by some entity. But you wouldn’t know since you’re having fun picking and twisting the history that suits you. Still, according to you, because the Roman Empire created Palestine, it’s quite just for it to be erased from the map, while Israel maintains Palestinians segregated in the ugliest form of apartheid.
Again, yours is the argument of a THIEF who wishes to appease his conscience by wrangling with false contentions that make no sense. There’s a better way to appease your conscience, since obviously you’re a Zionist Jew leaving on stolen Palestinian land: follow God’s commandments instead.
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” Exodus 20:17
Question #5: One of the things Israelis love to say is that there’s no such thing as a Palestinian people. How do you respond?
Answer #5: That there’s no such thing either as:
– a Jewish/Israeli people – because Talmudic Judaism is Pharisaism, a non-Abrahamic religion that follows an evil book called the Babylonian Talmud, full of satanic superstitions, hence not a race;
– or an American people – because America is comprised of different races from all over the world that make up a community of inhabitants seeking a better life in a new land, hence not a race either.
The Israelis love to muddy the water in order to take the focus away from the fact that they’re not Hebrews (all Hebrews are irrevocably dead) and have no right to the land of Palestine, a country they’ve stolen and destroyed.
They hoodwink the uninformed into believing that the Palestinians – whether a race or not (like Americans) – do not exist, when said Palestinians have inhabited Palestine for about 2000 years, roughly 1600 more years than Americans have inhabited America.
They also impose on the world their psychotic Islamophobia and unabashed Hebraic pretense, as well as creating all sorts of malicious lies and satanic-inspired false flag terrorism, in order to choke the truth and lure the weak-minded into looking over there (Palestinians???) and not over here (Jewish impostors and terrorists!!!).
Unfortunately, a large number of people, especially brainwashed Christians, swallow the bait hook, line, and sinker, and consequently fail to see the following:
a) modern Israel is not comprised of the 10 Hebrew tribes like in scriptures; b) the country’s current geographical demarcation is not as delineated by God in the book of Joshua; c) the nation would be called Judah instead of Israel, with the Levites sheltered therein, if Jews today were of the tribe of David; and d) the modern impostor state of Israel is made up of Jewish converts who are not Semitic descendants of Abraham.
“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18
However, Palestinian Arabs are Semites, descendants of Abraham; and therefore rightful inheritors of the land, not converted Jews. To obfuscate that reality, Israel engineered a hate-mongering and demonization campaign against Arabs and Muslims, which metastasized worldwide and seduced many Christians into sanctioning Israel’s foul anti-Christ spirit of “Hate Thy Neighbor.”
Question #1: Scholars who have had the rare privilege of studying the Bible have identified a whopping 14,800 mistakes and discrepancies. Although yes the bible is coherent, its history is an extremely convoluted one. I spent some time researching the subject a couple years ago and I must admit it’s quite the rabbit hole. How do you respond?
Answer #1: a) It is not a “rare” privilege to study the Christian bible. Everybody can and should and must. It’s the ONLY book with the truth.
b) The discrepancies are usually in translating words correctly. See BAD TRANSLATION. And it’s quite doubtful that there are 14,000 mistakes in the bible. Seriously, why didn’t they make it 140,000 or 1 million while they were at it? Scholars are usually full of it, especially those who hate God.
c) The word of God is not a rabbit hole. If it feels like that, it’s because it’s on purpose. It’s God’s way of nudging us to investigate and connect His thoughts on whatever subject is being explored, and which are scattered throughout the bible. The Good Book may appear truncated and cryptic, that’s also because it’s a spiritual book that can only be fully understood with the help of its author, God. See The Word of God.
Question #2: I read several threads here and was astounded that someone speaking with ‘authority’ stated that the bible was historical fact! The bible is allegorical.
In fact, the garden of Eden, the great flood, etc. – all those stories were stolen from other middle eastern cultures. The idea that there are people in the 21st century who take these anecdotes literally is mind-boggling.
Biblical legend doesn’t equal historical fact.
Answer #2: We, on the other hand, are not astounded at all by your foolishness.
“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.'” Psalm 14:1
That’s the only way to classify the ‘authority’ behind such an idiotic theory.
You wrongfully assume God’s word to be false – as if God isn’t capable of choosing a few men to write His story, when mere mortals rely on historians to do the same.
Consequently, using your mind-boggling logic, Christopher Columbus, Johannes Gutenberg, plus every other important figure in human history are nothing but concocted characters, whose allegorical stories are meant to inspire stupid people.
Further, the bible didn’t steal anything from other cultures. THEY DID. They acted out God’s prophetic pronouncements. Read When Prophecies Echo.
Illogical argument of a prejudicial mind does not equal truth nor historical fact.
Question #3: In the article Life, Death, And The Afterlife, you quote Jesus on the cross to the repentant thief.
There is a controversy about a possible discrepancy and where the comma should have been placed in His words. The meaning changes accordingly from “this day you will be in Paradise” to “I tell you this day.”
I don’t know if you agree with the new interpretation, but thought you might consider including it in one of your examples of Biblical mistranslations.
Paradise, so I read, was not a Hebrew but a pagan Greek concept. What is your thinking and research on that passage?
Answer #3: There’s no discrepancy at all, and paradise is not a pagan concept.
a) Whether the repentant thief would be in paradise “today” or “some other day” is not really an issue that deserves to be made a federal case out of. The fact of the matter still remains that the repentant thief would be in paradise – that day or the next, especially when…
“With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” 2 Peter 3:8
However, our position is:
“Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” Luke 23:43
Because why would Jesus say, “I tell you today, you’ll be…?” Didn’t Jesus know that what He was saying He was saying “that day” which was “today?” Was there some “other day” He was supposed to say it? It doesn’t make any sense.
So we’re quite sure that “today” was the appointed time Jesus meant when He promised the repentant thief paradise.
b) The Christian paradise is NOT a pagan notion.
Where Jesus is, everlasting life is as well: thus paradise is in the bosom of the Lord. In addition, there are many other verses that point to the Christian paradise reality, both in the Old and the New Testaments.
“To him who overcomes I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.” Revelation 2:7
“And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.” Daniel 12:2
Pagan cultures were the ones that mimicked and enacted biblical prophecies, never the other way around.
Question #4: Why wasn’t the New Testament written in Aramaic or Hebrew? Many believe that the fact that it was written in Greek is a glaring discrepancy when one considers the spoken languages of the time.
Answer #4: The original non-translated bible is in Hebrew (Old Testament) and in Greek (New Testament). In Jesus’s time no one spoke Hebrew but Aramaic, as Jesus demonstrated on the cross: “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (Matthew 27:46)
Why then wasn’t the New Testament written in Aramaic? Simply because Greek was the language of scholarship during the years of the composition of the New Testament from 50 to 66 AD.
“So the New Testament authors wrote in Greek. They did not, however, use really high-class or classical Greek, but a very common and everyday type of Greek. For many years some scholars ridiculed the Greek of the New Testament because many of its words were strange to those who read the writings of the great Greek classical authors such as Plato and Aristotle. But later many records were uncovered of ordinary people, and amazingly there were the same common terms used in everyday speech! The ridicule dried up accordingly,” explains The International Bible Society.
Question #5: The discrepancies you’ve discovered in the bible, which make up your Bad Translation section, prompt one to question even following the bible, especially since God has apparently not brought man to make a faithful interpretation?
Answer #5: Why follow the bible? Because you should.
And yes, God has brought man to a faithful interpretation of it, even if you erroneously think He has not. As you yourself already attested, whatever inaccurate transliterations that currently exist in the many versions have been discovered and fixed in our Bad Translation section.
That alone should tell you that God is still watching over His word, even if those corrections have not yet been added to all published versions: that’s why you need to make a mental note of them for when you’re studying the word.
Besides, the entirety of the bible has 2 main purposes:
Those are coherently and faithfully interpreted and translated throughout the bible, no matter the version.
Question #6: Could there be manipulation at the root of some discrepancies in published bibles?
Answer #6: Yes, though it’s limited to the word Jew.
In all currently published bibles the word Jew is what is printed, instead of Judahite or Judean as it should be. However, in the 1985 New King James version, published by Thomas Nelson, Inc., there’s a glaring discrepancy:
“…the Judeans, who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they do not please God and are contrary to all men.” 1 Thessalonians 2:15
That’s the only place in that version where the word Ioudaios is rightly translated as Judean instead of the conspicuous word Jew.
Which prompts the following questions:
Did Jews bribe Thomas Nelson, Inc. to do it? If so, what did they stand to gain? And do the editors at Thomas Nelson, Inc. actually know that the word Jew is NOT in the bible?
All in all, it simply is deliberate manipulation. Because, simply put, the same Greek word Ioudaios is oddly translated two different ways in that version.
And the only place where it’s different is in that very uncomfortable and crucial verse where we are being led, like sheep to the slaughter, to envisage “Jews” (of today, of course) as not contrary to all men and not the killers of our Lord; while the “Judeans,” of the tribe of Judah, were the actual contrary ones who crucified the Lord and persecuted Christians.
Still, in other verses where the word Jew is maintained throughout, the Talmudic Rabbinists (aka Fake Hebrews or Jews) get to be seen as the Hebrews of old – a misappropriated appellation that is full of benefits for them, including the theft of Palestine to create modern-day Israel.
Consequently, yes, the editors at Thomas Nelson, Inc. do know that the Word Jew is NOT in the Bible, and yet they keep using it.
Question: Since you say in your articles that Jews today are the descendants of Japheth, what does the following verse mean: “May God extend the territory of Japheth, may Japheth live in the tents of Shem (Genesis 9:27)?” Does it not refer to the Japhetites – today’s Jews – inhabiting the land of the Arab Semites?
Answer: No, and we just absolutely abhor when people pluck a single verse out of context to either make or infer a false point.
You totally ignored Genesis 9:26: “Praise be to the LORD, the God of Shem!”
Notice that Noah didn’t say the God of Japheth. The implication is that the tents of Shem would be blessed by God Himself, and that God would dwell there. Noah blessed Shem and cursed Canaan, but gave Japhteth secondary blessings which would drip out of the tents of Shem and onto Japheth’s. Hence, “May Japheth live in the tents of Shem.”
The extension here is that of SPIRITUAL blessings, and by implication means “if only Japheth dwelt in the tent of Jehovah (Shem’s tents where He lived), God would prosper him or enlarge his territory.”
“Whoever dwells in the tent of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalm 91:1
The branches of Japheth are many. Today, a few of them (Talmudic Ashkenazim and Sephardim) are dwelling in the tents of Satan, not Jehovah’s, because Talmudic Judaism is Pharisaism, not an Abrahamic religion.
However, with the New Covenant everything has changed. Only those who dwell in the tent of Jesus are saved and placed in an “enlarged” or “blessed” position, which on Judgment Day will translate into Everlasting Life and into Inheriting the Earth (territorial blessing).
“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5
Get with the program. The OLD has passed! Behold, the NEW!
Question: Isn’t the Talmud in essence the same as the Torah? Simply read Deuteronomy – the master race kleptocracy stuff is spelled out fully.
Answer: The Torah or the Pentateuch is comprised of the first 5 books of the Christian Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Whereas the Talmud is a Babylonian book full of superstitions and lies.
Most of Deuteronomy is now obsolete as it is part of the Old Covenant.
“By calling this covenant ‘new,’ he has made the first one obsolete.” Hebrews 8:13
However, the supremacist idea you thought you saw in Deuteronomy is actually God’s election of the 12 Ancient Hebrew Tribes, which was for a singular purpose: it was God’s way of nurturing for Himself an earthly home and family for when He decided to visit in the person of Jesus, the Savior of the world.
From the very beginning, God’s plan was to always include all the nations of the earth within His family once the Messiah had arrived.
“And through your [Abraham’s] offspring [Jesus] all the families of the earth shall be blessed…” Genesis 26: 4
Irrespective of what Jews believe, they’re in denial of the truth.
“No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.” 1 John 2:23
Worse still, Talmudic Jews follow Pharisaism, not an Abrahamic faith, and adhere to the Babylonian Talmud, the real Satanic Verses, a book full of lies and superstitions. In addition, they consider themselves to be gods, and see Jesus as a sorcerer and a demon-possessed liar who is now boiling in excrement in hell, and whose mother Mary was a whore.
“We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement,” vomited Menahem Begin, the 6th Prime Minister of Israel.
As for such demented, master-race, supremacist belief, it’ll go the way of all supremacist beliefs. Down in flames.
Question: Is patriotism incompatible with the Christian life?
Answer: First of all, patriotism is a fallacy, since it revolves around countries with imaginary borders that God did not biblically delineate.
If true patriotism exists in this world, it is connected to one’s local area where one makes a living.
“Money is the answer for everything.” Ecclesiastes 10:19
It manifests itself through one’s hard work, which in turn provides one with a healthy financial condition that affords one true freedom: one not reliant upon a falsely revered piece of cloth (flag) nor on some archaic music notes (national anthem) as waved and manipulated by a fascist government that is wagged by a small elite or the 1%.
However, because God has established governing authorities, Christians are commanded to obey the laws of the countries in which they live.
“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.” Romans 13:1,2
Still, Christian obedience to man-made laws of governing authorities is not intended to be absolute, since there will be instances of these laws that violate scriptures. Therefore, if such laws from Governing Authorities are contrary to God’s laws, the following principle applies:
“We must obey God rather than human beings!” Acts 5:9
In addition, attachment to anything on earth is a form of vanity, a type of seduction that elevates things on earth above things of the spirit.
“For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world.” 1 John 2:16
True Christians are ambassadors of Christ on earth and thus unequivocally under the jurisdiction of Christ’s government and Biblical Laws – hence they are only foreigners on this earth.
“All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.” Hebrews 11:13
Said detachment in no way invalidates our God-assigned mission or business, which is to change the world through love, peace, and biblical morality.
“Engage in business until I come.” Luke 19:13
Question: Are the descendants of Edom still around? Because some people sure think so.
Answer: Edom (or Esau) was the brother of Jacob (or Israel). Jacob went and stole his brother Esau’s blessings from their father Isaac, which in turn created a deep hatred in Esau’s (or Edom’s) heart.
“And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.” Genesis 27: 41
Knowing of Esau’s plan to kill him, Jacob fled. However, the blood feud never ceased and went on for generations.
“Because of what Edom did against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and has greatly offended by avenging itself on them, therefore thus says the Lord GOD: ‘I will also stretch out My hand against Edom, cut off man and beast from it, and make it desolate from Teman; Dedan shall fall by the sword. I will lay My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel, that they may do in Edom according to My anger and according to My fury; and they shall know My vengeance,’ says the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 25:12-14
“Because you have had an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore, as I live,” says the Lord GOD, “I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you… Because you have said, ‘These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess them,’ although the LORD was there, therefore, as I live,” says the Lord GOD, “I will do according to your anger and according to the envy which you showed in your hatred against them… The whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate… you shall be desolate, O Mount Seir, as well as all of Edom—all of it! Then they shall know that I am the LORD.” Ezekiel 35: 5-6,10-11, 14-15
The Edomites never repented of their hatred and suffered the consequences. They were totally wiped out.
“Esau I have hated, and I have turned his hill country into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals.” Malachi 1:3
By Esau’s inheritance God meant his descendants.
“Children are an inheritance of the LORD.” Psalm 127:3
So, to answer your question, no. There are no more Edomites roaming about. They’re all DEAD. D-E-A-D. Dead like all the Hebrews.
Question #1: Not a day goes by in which a drunken, brutish man does not beat his wife to the point of, and even to death. There is NO legal protection to keep this from happening, certainly not restraining orders that seem to be enforced after the fact. Is it Scriptural for a woman to “stand by her man” even in the certain knowledge that the next time he beats her, or their children, they will die? How could this possibly be the existence that God has set forth for a woman?
Answer #1: a) God didn’t set forth that woman’s predicament. SHE chose her man, not God. It’s called consequences.
b) There might not be legal protection to prevent something like that from happening, however God did set out how one goes about getting married to help foil as much as possible such things from occurring. See The Biblical Marriage Blueprint.
c) If these things do transpire, the wife can separate herself from her husband temporarily until the husband gets some help and changes for the better. Family members are key in such an instance. The husband needs to know that his wife is surrounded by people who can protect her and provide for her. See The Family Is God’s Plan.
d) As a last resort, the wife can divorce her husband, even though God hates divorce. The only consequence of such an action is that she would never be able to marry again. That’s all. However, if she decides to marry after divorcing her husband, she would become an adulteress. Hence, she won’t see the kingdom of God. Now, that’s bad. Really bad. See Of Fornication, Divorce, and Adultery.
Question #2: I eloped as a youngster, with no familial consent. My parents were completely against the marriage, my dad called it a sham from the start. God was not part of the picture back then. I divorced this man five years ago. I have one child from this marriage. I have since been trying to be a good Christian. I have not dated, even though I’m urged to, even at church… Therefore I need strong advice right now.
So my question is this: my marriage was never quite bona fide, but in my gut I think the rules still apply; I cannot remarry unless the ex dies. Or I have to reconcile with him. Which won’t happen because he’s had a traumatic brain injury and is now unable to care even for himself. But mostly because I’d rather be alone for the rest of my life than deal with a sociopath and abuser again.
Does my conclusion sound right?
I respect this website and your advice. I know it comes across harsh, but the truth hurts. Thanks for any reply.
Answer #2: Thank you.
Excellent question, and even though we are not in the business of meting out personal advice, there are a couple of points we can elaborate on. However, as a rule, when God’s laws are echoing in your conscience, pay heed to them – which you seem to be doing.
In any case, you went ahead and married that individual without parental consent.
On one hand, there are consequences for disobedience. God’s rule for getting married is to obey your parents by obtaining their blessing, which you failed to secure. The purpose of said blessing is to cause everything to go well with you and to protect you from this very situation you are now experiencing. See The Biblical Marriage Blueprint.
“Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged and that it may go well with you.” Deuteronomy 5:16
Your parents’ disagreement with the union cannot be used as an excuse to nullify a marriage that already occurred. Besides, there are no laws in the bible to confirm such a possibility. Ultimately, the marriage covenant is between a man and his wife – meaning, you must now carry your cross for the Lord.
“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife…” Ephesians 5: 31
On the other hand, you received from that union a gift from God, a child, the ultimate purpose of marriage, which is accomplished. Most everyone seems to forget said purpose, as they have bought into the fallacious fantasy of “falling in love” just for the sake of finding someone.
If truly you cannot reconcile with your husband, then there’s nothing wrong in being alone at this point in your life. You have produced a child who should now be your focus.
“She shall be saved in childbearing – if she continues in faith, love, and holiness with propriety.” 1 Timothy 2:15
So stand on God’s laws, and after you have done all to stand, stand – especially as an example to your child.
Question #3: Since Eve was not subjected to Adam until God pronounced judgment upon her, and if reconciliation restored us to that original communion with our Father (we are all ONE family with equal access to our Father), and the bible says, ‘There is neither Judahite nor Greek, MALE nor FEMALE, slave nor free’ (Galatians 3:28), then why is the woman still subjected to her husband if she is now married to Christ and no distinction exists to God?
Corinth was in Greece and they considered women with so little value they could kill them if they were displeased with them, thus Paul’s reference ‘as the LAW states.’
The old covenant made distinctions, the new does not. Freedom is freedom for ALL God’s children, not for some. Religion has lied in order to maintain their ‘power, dominion and authority’ over people who cannot discern their right hand from their left.
“We have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.” 1 Timothy 4:10
However, the New Covenant does make a distinction when it comes to spiritual structural authority.
“But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” 1 Corinthians 11:3
The head of woman is man, not Jesus and not God. Even before the fall, woman was created for man and not the other way around. She was “of man,” or woman, fashioned to be his helper.
“The LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’” Genesis 2:18
The freedom for all you mentioned is the feminism charade you are trying to morph into God’s law, since you do not wish to follow His authority paradigm. Hence you are the one who’s now equivocating and twisting God’s word, even though you’re right about religion lying concerning many other aspects of faith in order to maintain power and control.
Further, God’s structural authority is not to be construed as making a woman inferior or of no value to a man. It is to protect her from that very weakness which caused the first woman, Eve, to fall in the first place.
“Husbands, dwell with your wives with understanding, giving honor unto the wife as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers be not hindered.” 1 Peter 3:7
Question #1: I tried using the search box, but didn’t come across any titles that would match my question.
If a Jew is actually not a Judahite, what does it mean then that “a Judahite is not one outwardly but one inwardly?” Because that doesn’t even make sense, but neither does the typical one we always hear. I left messianic Judaism after seeing how stupid it is with all this Ashkenazi stuff. I’m really bent on telling others not to let the rabbi use them as a tool for furthering the Zionist agenda.
Answer #1: The reason we don’t have anything on your question is because the bible is pretty clear on the subject if you read the whole thing in context.
“The one who is physically uncircumcised yet keeps the Law will condemn you who, even though you have the written code and circumcision, are a lawbreaker. A person is not a Judahite who is one only outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. No, a man is a Judahite because he is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise does not come from men, but from God.” Romans 2:27,28,29
Paul was admonishing the Judahites who didn’t want to follow God’s laws, and who thought that just because they were born in the tribe of Judah, that was enough. Paul told them it wasn’t, and that following all of God’s enduring laws was the rule to show God’s election in one’s life.
A Judahite was supposed to follow God’s commandments since he was elected to do so as per the Old Covenant. Therefore, a Judahite was not one outwardly (through the flesh and the election of the tribe of Judah) but through the application of God’s laws, which is by the spirit (i.e. inwardly).
So when in the spirit a circumcised person (i.e., a Judahite Hebrew) – or even an uncircumcised (i.e., a non-Hebrew or Gentile) – followed said laws, he was applying the spirit of God. Consequently, having been born a Judahite (of the tribe of Judah) was not sufficient, hence “a Judahite was not one outwardly, but inwardly.”
Likewise, with the advent of Christ, the savior of the whole world, everyone who’s now saved, through the New Covenant in Christ’s blood, is thus elected to do the same as the Judahites of old (i.e., applying God’s laws). However, many Christians unfortunately have the same mistaken disposition; they think that being born again is enough, and that they don’t have to follow God’s laws, which is a fallacy as well. See Of Legalism and Christians
And yes, there’s something wrong with Messianic “Judaism.” See The Chosen People Syndrome
And yes, we must fight against the evil of Zionism.
Question #2: The true Hebrews/Israelites are white, Christian Europeans and their descendants around the world today, mainly America. Have you forgotten all the everlasting promises and blessings prophesied to the descendants of Jacob? That their seed would endure forever. We are Israel!!!!!
Answer #2: First, all Hebrews are DEAD. Besides, they were a Semitic people, like Arabs are. Do these Europeans and their descendants look like Arabs to you? Jeez. You have a SEVERE case of the Hebrew Disease.
Second, that SEED was JESUS.
“If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:29
Those descendants you mentioned encompass CHRISTIANS everywhere, regardless of race. We are all “spiritual” Israel. Hence, it’s NOT about bloodline, but about FAITH in Christ Jesus. That’s what makes a Christian a “descendant” of Abraham, or of Abraham’s “seed.”
If Christ is in us, then the SEED of Abraham, who is Christ, is in us. Thus we are of Abraham’s seed. It is because of JESUS we are of that “seed.” NOT because of bloodline, since we are not.
In any case, God couldn’t care less about bloodline. The flesh will rot, but the spirit will endure forever.
“There is neither Judahite nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28
Further, we will get a HEAVENLY BODY on resurrection day, a body that has nothing to do with “Hebraic” bloodline.
So pick another battle.
Question: Do you have a theory as to how the Races came to be?
Answer: A theory, sure.
In the beginning, there was just one race or nation which God scattered throughout the earth at the Tower of Babel.
“So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth.” Genesis 11:8
Obviously God had foreseen such an event, and most likely – because there are no bible verses to point to – embedded in man’s genetic make up something He allowed to develop, which changed man’s singular feature into various ones (not unlike the 35 human blood group systems). Said changes most likely occurred early in mankind’s history, following the scattering.
Question #1: What is the meaning of life?
Answer #1: To love and serve God by loving and serving one another.
“ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.‘ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40
When you buy a car, for instance, you buy something that was created to serve the one who buys it. Likewise, God created us to love and serve.
As to why we toil under the sun, please read To Infinity and Beyond.
Question #2: Has God changed his original plan for mankind?
Answer #2: From the very beginning God’s covenant was with man and his family. The plan was that they would obey Him and subdue the earth for His glory. Nothing has changed.
Question: Isn’t it about time we give up on the Jew Book and all this Christ-tard nonsense and take control of our own future?
Answer: We bet you thought you were being original.
First, the bible is not a Jew book. It’s God’s. The word JEW is not even in the bible (the original non-translated one).
Second, Christ is NOT nonsense. If you could take control of your future, you could also take control over death which is in your future. As it stands, you can’t control death, therefore you can’t control your future.
Jesus on the other hand rose from the dead, and thereby controlled his future and his death. Isn’t it better to follow His “nonsense” than your nonsense? 🙂
Get on board with the real truth and the real future, because not every individual can make up his own truth. That would be chaos. There can only be ONE TRUTH. Either white is white or it is not. Truth is truth, and Jesus is that truth.
“I am the way and the TRUTH and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Follow Him today.
Question: If the Holocaust didn’t happen, like you posit in your article Jews And History: Lies Galore, why did Germany pay reparations to Israel? And where are the German documents that prove what your article puts forward?
Answer: A. Why Germany paid “reparations” to Israel is beyond any comprehension.
1. Germany never did anything to Israel. Israel didn’t even exist during World War 2. On the contrary, Israel was created using World War 2 as an excuse, while demonizing Germany to no end. So Israel is the one that in reality should be paying “reparations” to Germany, just to thank them and apologize for maligning their nation throughout the last century.
2. Germany did not really pay “reparations.” What it did was pay taxes or tributes to the Jewish Empire, like the vassal states of old did to the empires of their time. America may be the current world empire to be reckoned with, but it’s on a tightly controlled Jewish leash.
Empires always squeeze their victims. For instance, Haiti just recently finished paying “reparations” to France, because the Haitians had the gall to kick out their French slave masters and declared independence in… wait for it… 1803. And what was the French reasoning for demanding reparations? Well, according to them, Haiti, the then richest colony in the world, was theirs, and the Haitians stole it. Go figure.
Now, we await the day when Jews will pay reparations to the Palestinians for having stolen their land, massacred their people, and kicked millions out of their homes. (We can dream, can’t we?)
3. Even today, Germany is an occupied country with many American military bases. Since it was on the losing side in World War 2, it was taken over by the US for the benefit of the Jews who control the Federal Reserve, a private firm that wags every other institution in America.
When General Patton finally understood that America was being wagged from within, he classified the war against Germany as, “The wrong war, at the wrong place, at the wrong time, and with the wrong enemy.” After uttering such wisdom, the Empire sidelined and relegated him to a desk job.
B. Now, to your “documents” question.
The Nazis were very meticulous and kept strict records of everything that went on. Following their defeat, the US Army took over their government and seized all “pertinent” documents. So waiting for the real truth about the “Holocaust” to come from a shackled Germany is like waiting for hell to freeze over.
Besides, the onus is on the Jews to prove their accusatory lies, not the other way around. In a court of law, the accuser or the District Attorney is the one that makes the case for guilt, not the accused. And for Germany to try to prove its innocence is to try to convince an Empire-controlled kangaroo court of the fact that it was framed by the Empire.
Like Winston Churchill said, “History is written by the victors.”
Question: In the Christian faith, which is more important, love or the law?
Answer: Let’s see.
1. The Christian faith has Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross at its core. And the cross is God’s fulfillment of the law.
“It is fulfilled.” John 19:30
2. Obedience to God’s commandments is Love.
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15
However, some will say that God is love (1 John 4:8) and therefore more important than the law. What they overlook is, God IS also the Law or the Word.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
So the Word or the Law is Love. And…
“Love is the fulfillment of the law.” Matthew 23:23
Consequently, because love originates from fulfilling the law, it has the LAW at its source.
3. Everything revolves around the law, even mercy and faith.
“You have neglected the more important matters of the law–justice, mercy, and faithfulness.” Matthew 23:23
Conclusion: LOVE = LAW = LOVE. No distinction.
Question: Is the biblical book Song of Songs a dedication to romance prior to marriage (i.e., a way of winning someone’s heart)? If it is, doesn’t that mean your article The Biblical Marriage Blueprint is off the mark?
Answer: No, Song of Songs is not a book about seduction western-style.
Even if it is about romance prior to marriage, it is directed towards a beloved who is betrothed, not towards an individual whom one is trying to seduce prior to betrothal.
Many in the Western world see it thus because they have modern goggles on, painted with the fantastic stroke of romance as a tool to win someone’s heart.
The entire biblical culture towards marriage is as explained in said article. Song of Songs is thus written within that context, which is different from today’s western tradition.
Does the bible have instances of individuals who stepped out of the norm? Of course.
The Word of God doesn’t fail to display the wrongdoings of those who go against the biblical grain. It also does show us the consequences of their actions.
Question: Is a Christian allowed to eat food deemed unclean by the bible?
Answer: If your conscience reproaches you, don’t eat them.
After the fall, God gave all live animals as food to man.
“Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.” Genesis 9:3-4
Later on, many of these animals were declared ceremonially unclean by God in Leviticus 11 and were not to be consumed by the ancient Hebrews.
“It is ceremonially unclean for you.” Leviticus 11:4
However, when Jesus walked the earth, He said the following:
“Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” Mark 7:18-19
Which prompted the author of the book of Mark to say this:
“(In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)” Mark 7:19
What the author meant was that all clean foods were still clean even after one ate “without the ceremonial washing of one’s hands,” which was the actual context.
“Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with defiled hands?” Mark 7:5
Some also use the Apostle Peter’s vision to declare the same, that all foods are clean. Acts 10:
9 About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. 13 Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.”
14 “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.”
15 The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”
16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.
Unfortunately, Peter’s vision, like all symbolic dreams and visions, was not literally about food. After meditating, Peter understood what God was trying to tell him.
“Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. He said to them: ‘You are well aware that it is against our law for a Judahite to associate with or visit a Gentile. God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean.'” Acts 10:27,28
In the beginning, God gave all animals as food to us. He then restricted many of them as “ceremonially unclean” in Leviticus. Subsequently, those Old Covenant “ceremonies” became defunct with the advent of Christ’s New Covenant. However, there’s nothing in the New Testament that specifically revokes the Old Testament ordinances on eating unclean food.
Yet, as Christ succinctly put it, it is not what one eats that defiles a man.
“’What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.’” Mark 7:20-23
Consequently, as to unclean food it truly becomes a question of necessity or of conscience.
“Holding faith, and a good conscience.” 1 Timothy 1:19
“‘All things are permissible for me, but not everything is beneficial. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, but God will destroy them both.” 1 Corinthians 6:12,13
Question: In various of your articles you wrongfully state that all Hebrews are dead. What you fail to grasp is that the word Hebrew means Black. Therefore, blacks today are the real Hebrews. And because they’re still around, you’re wrong. So deal with it.
Answer: The word Hebrew is from the Hebrew word Abarim, meaning Beyond. Its root is derived from Eber, who was the ancestor of Abraham. Eber also means “beyond” or “this side,” NOT Black. So you’re wrong, all Hebrews are dead. Therefore, you’re the one who has to deal with it, because you’ve got a bad case of The Hebrew Disease.
Question #1: Can you expand on the role of the anti-Christ? All nations being ruled from Jerusalem because of the Mount of Olives prophecy? Babylon being destroyed by fire in the book of Revelation? The 7 churches? Lambs and lions peacefully around each other during the millennial period? And the timeliness of Daniel?
Answer #1: a) As per the Apostle John, the Anti-Christ is not to be construed as a stand-alone entity, but it is to be understood as a diseased spirit that takes hold of individuals and makes them fight throughout the centuries against everything Christ represents (e.g., the Anti-Christ spirit of “Hate Thy Neighbor” that revs up the engine of the State of Israel).
“Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.” 1 John 2:18
The last hour was to be the year 70 A.D. when God annihilated all the non-believing Hebrews, and destroyed Jerusalem and the temple. See A Brief History Of The Kingdoms Of Israel And Judah.
Still, that particular “anti-Christ” depicted in the Book of Revelation was to be the Emperor of Rome, who thought himself god.
The Apostle John actually called the Emperor of Rome the beast.
“The beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.” Revelation 19:20
He also gave the beast the number 666.
“Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” Revelation 13:18
The significance of the number 6 rests in the fact that man was created on the 6th day. Therefore 6 is the number of man. And triple 6 or 666 is man puffing himself up from 6 to the third degree, 1 degree more than God’s duality of Father and Son: such was the Emperor of Rome’s hubris in positioning his might above God’s and above his created status.
That’s why the Caesar was nicknamed the Anti-Christ by Christians everywhere, because he was the agent of Satan the Dragon, placed himself above Jehovah and His anointed Jesus, and persecuted Christians throughout his empire.
“…every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…” 2 Corinthians 10:5
The animal sacrifices, performed daily by the Judahites in Jerusalem, were abolished by Rome, which then had the image or statue of its Emperor Caligula (Gaius) set up to be worshiped in the very temple which was later desolated by its army in 70 A.D., along with Jerusalem. Emperor Vespasian’s ruthless son, Titus, led the war that year, and for his achievement was awarded a triumph: the Arch of Titus.
“From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up...” Daniel 12:11
b) There’s no such thing as “all nations will be ruled from Jerusalem” in the bible, even with Zechariah’s prophecy. See Pray For The Peace Of Which Jerusalem?
“On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.” Zechariah 14:4
That prophetic and symbolic imagery of Jesus’s FEET, standing on the Mount of Olives in earthly Jerusalem and splitting it in two from east to west, meant that Jesus’s glory would WALK AWAY from Jerusalem, situated in the eastern part of the world, and would spread throughout the western part of it (thereby creating Christian Western Civilization), with the mountain itself moving north and south in two halves to cover the whole globe.
“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” Habbakuk 2:14
Consequently, Jesus abandoned once and for all the Babylonian abomination that earthly and wicked Jerusalem had become, and in 70 A.D. orchestrated its destruction which brought about a great valley of death.
“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:5
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…” Psalm 23:4
c) Babylon in Revelation was thus symbolic of earthly Jerusalem, which was destroyed by fire in 70 A.D.
d) The 7 churches/assemblies in Revelation were assemblies that existed in various regions (7) of the world, which God wanted perfect before shutting down the Old Covenant in 70 A.D. so He could rebuild the world on a new, solid foundation, that of the New Covenant.
e) We are currently within the thousand-year reign of Christ: obviously Christians (lambs) are living side by side with non-Christians (lions), as opposed to when the Hebrews used to live within their own Kingdoms (Israel and Judah), separate and away from non-believers.
f) Daniel’s prophecies in the Old Testament were confirmations of John’s prophecies in Revelation and also pertained to 70 A.D., as evidenced in section a) of the Anti-Christ. But you can read more here.
“Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.” 2 Corinthians 13:1
Question #2: 666, which is the number of a man, can also be construed as the man Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who first used the six pointed star as his corporate logo. Then later the Rothschilds also had it placed on the flag of Israel, the Palestinian land they swindled during WWI/II.
Answer #2: 666 does NOT point to Mayer A. Rothschild. It’s indicative of the Emperor of Rome, as explained above.
In addition, the star of “David,” which is not David’s at all, has been used by countless individuals in occult practices for millennia, way before the Rothschilds commandeered it for their own use.

Question #1: I have a close friend who is “knowledgeable” about the bible and I set forth to him about the tribulation described by Tacitus, Josephus, Eusebius, but he said that scripture should line up with scripture and not to use non biblical sources. He is pre-tribulation dispensationalist (i.e., he believes in rapture theology). Your thoughts.
Answer #1: When he says scriptures should line up with scriptures, he’s correct.
However, he and his fellow dispensationalists don’t follow their own advice. They keep pointing at world news, modern Israel – which is not comprised of biblical Hebrews – and the many other fallacies of rapture doctrine that either step out of the bible or totally misinterpret God’s word.
Our article on rapture uses scriptures to confirm scriptures. The exception is, we point to the fact that the prophecies of Jesus, the Prophets, and the Apostles all line up with what occurred in 70 AD, as compared to the dispensational view that they will take place in the future in an unprecedented, unbiblical momentary interruption of the course of history, along with Christian bodies being supernaturally snatched all over the place, contrary to scriptures.
Still, in either case one has to slightly step outside the bible to point out the fulfilled prophecies in world history. There’s no other way around it.
Except that in their case, their view is not only strange and preposterous, but wrong. See The EVIL of Rapture Theology.
Question #2: Isaiah 65:20 says, “There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.”
There are those that use Isaiah 65:20 as proof of a millennium (following the rapture) where children will live a hundred years. What does Isaiah 65:20 reveal to you?
Second, the word “hundred” in this instance is used in a similar fashion as the word “thousand” in the thousand-year reign of Christ. Therefore, that prophetic passage in Isaiah means that God’s people (or Christians, connected to the new Jerusalem above) during the “very, very long” reign of the Messiah, which is currently taking place, otherwise known as Christ’s millennium, would be bountifully blessed with “long” life.
“With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” Psalm 91:16
Long life is also conjoined to the fifth commandment.
“Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged and that it may go well with you.” Deuteronomy 5:16
Keep in mind that prophecies many times use “colorful imagery” to convey a simple message or idea; just the way Jesus used parables, and said things like “moving mountain” when He was not literally talking about “moving a mountain” but about resolving a difficulty of sort.
“All these things spoke Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spoke He not unto them.” Matthew 13:34
Question #1: If the Kingdom of God was on Earth right now, wouldn’t the King take care of so many atrocious people himself? Don’t the Scriptures say that He would rule them with an iron rod? Jesus himself told Pilate that if His Kingdom was of this world more than twelve legions of angels would be fighting for Him. So now that His Kingdom is finally established, nothing happens and sin and injustice run rampant?
Answer #1: Jesus left us Christians in charge. WE are the salt of the earth. WE are supposed to take care of these problems by doing what God commanded, and by inspiring and helping people everywhere to look up to God for solutions.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14
As to “Jesus ruling with an iron rod,” that verse is referring to how Jesus keeps His people in line, away from sins. Read When Bad Things Happen to see how He does it.
In reference to the Kingdom of God and Pilate question, here’s Jesus:
“When asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, ‘The kingdom of God will not come with observable signs. Nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.’ ” Luke 17:20,21
You are thinking like the Judahites of Old who wanted a military-style Kingdom. DON’T. God’s Kingdom is of the Spirit, which first and foremost changes the sinful nature of man and in turn allows positive change to take place.
Last, you say that sin is running rampant.
It is because:
1) many Christians have been poisoned with the heretical Rapture Doctrine, and consequently have given up on being the salt of the earth;
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Matthew 5:13
2) the church has been hijacked by unscrupulous men peddling false dogmas that are contrary to the Lord’s commands;
“There will be men who abandon the true faith and allow themselves to be spiritually seduced by teachings of the devil, teachings given by men who are lying hypocrites, whose consciences are as dead as seared flesh.” 1 Timothy 4:1,2
3) many refuse to go through the narrow door that leads to life;
“But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:14
4) the weed is growing with the wheat.
“Jesus said, ‘if you pull the weeds now, you might uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’” Matthew 13: 29,20
When is the harvest? Read Where Is Satan Now?
Question #2: When did the Kingdom of God on earth as stated by Jesus start?
Answer #2: It started with the birth of our Lord Jesus who was born King.
“Where is the one who has been born king of the Judahites? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2
His dominion throughout the earth began spreading “officially” or “widely” on Pentecost in 30 AD. However, Jesus waited 40 years for the disobedient Hebrews to accept Him. Then, in 70 AD, He shut down the Old Covenant and overthrew Satan as god of this world, thus solidifying Himself as sole potentate.
“To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 5:11
His dominion is currently in effect. See Where Is Satan Now?
Question #3: a. Jesus expressly said that His kingdom was not of this world.
b. When the Devil tempted Christ and told him to bow to him in order to rule the kingdoms of the world, Jesus refused the kingdoms. So why would Jesus want to establish his kingdom on earth when he refused to take it from the Devil?
c. This World is not fixable. All we have is faith and prayer. I do try to make myself perfect which is vain.
Answer #3: a. Jesus’s Kingdom may not be OF this world, but He came to establish it IN this world.
“From that time Jesus began to preach and say, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’” Matthew 4:17
b. Jesus did not come to get anything from Satan, he came to destroy his works.
“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8
So why would Jesus accept anything from him? After he defeated the devil, His Heavenly Father gave Him everything.
“For God ‘has put everything under his feet.’” 1 Corinthians 15:27
c. God’s desire for us in this world is to do His will, which is to do His business until He returns.
“Occupy until I come.” Luke 19:13
And if this world is not fixable, then Jesus died for nothing. Of what use are your faith and prayers then?
Jesus came to fix mankind, so the world can in turn be fixed. Are you fixed? You don’t think you’re perfect?
“Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5: 48
As perfection takes hold, each man’s world in turn becomes perfect through the workings of Christ in our lives. And without said PERFECTION, we will not inherit the truly new PERFECT earth that Jesus will bring forth, because only PERFECT beings can inhabit a PERFECT place.
“Without holiness no one will see the Lord.” Hebrews 12: 14
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away…” Revelation 21:1
“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5
Question #4: “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14
In light of what Jesus said, what are these greater works of the Kingdom?
Answer #4: Each individual must go to God and find out the works he must do for the kingdom. However, even a cursory look would show how Jesus’s disciples “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6), and how Christians afterwards greatly managed to change the world from the time Jesus was around to today.
Question #1: Isn’t God an unknowable essence?
Answer #1: No.
There may be things about God that are mysteries to us, just like there may be things about women that are plain mysteries to men; but that doesn’t prevent men from knowing their wives.
God Himself wants us to know Him.
“Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 9: 23-24
“This is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” John 17:3
God wants us so much to know Him that He became flesh and dwelt amongst us.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
You can know God. Click here. Then He’ll come and make His abode with you.
“My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” John 14:23
Question #2: To be consistent in your article The Trinity Doctrine Is Not In The Bible, if you conclude that the Trinity is not part of the Godhead, thus a lie, and that the Holy Spirit is not a person nor a sentient being, but is a thing, then you should change your own use of “he” to “it”, especially as said doctrine destroys the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Answer #2: First, the fact that mainstream Christianity does not adhere to the truth that the Holy Spirit is not God and does not form a Trinity with the Father and the Son in no way destroys the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is salvation in Christ alone – a totally separate disputation. You are simply forcing one onto the other in order to make a false point.
Second, we never concluded that the Holy Spirit was not sentient and that He was a Thing. Your argument of He or It is absurd. Why?
a. God is not a person either, in the sense that we understand a person to be a human. He is God. A Spirit. So which pronoun would you use for HIM?
“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24
b. Angels are not persons either. They’re spirits. Neither male nor female. So which pronoun would use to describe one? He, She, or It?
“At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.” Matthew 22:30
Consequently, we’ll stick with He for the Holy Ghost, because the Power that He carries is to be respected as Christ succinctly pointed out.
“And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him.” Luke 12:10
Since when can one blaspheme against an It or a Thing? The Holy Spirit is the one who guarantees our eternal inheritance, and a “Thing” is incapable of doing so.
“…the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.” Ephesians 1:14
“And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.” Ephesians 4:30
Therefore you better be careful AND respectful.
“‘Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit…’ And as he heard these words, Ananias fell down and breathed his last…” Acts 5:3-5
Question: In many of your articles you talk about hearing the voice of God, or that God would “show us” how to go about doing a certain thing. How do you hear God’s voice?
Answer: He tugs your heart gently and repeatedly until His will permeates your spirit – that is if you’re truly open to hearing Him. For His will to really permeate you, you have to be faithful in applying His commandments. After all, if you can’t be obedient to His written word, how will you be obedient to hearing His voice?
The more you study the bible, the more the Holy Spirit helps you cleave to the truth. The more you live out God’s commandments, the more sensitive you become to His guidance and His voice, the more cleansed your mind, the more attuned your soul, and the more fruitful your work.
Delve in our CHURCH REFORM series, which will get you on the right track to follow His ways, read the bible, spend time in prayer, and constantly apply what you learn. Then His voice will become as clear as a bell to your soul. We can confidently say, “We know!”
