Headline: Uncomfortable Truths

“The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge.Proverbs 18:15



Acknowledging the truth is the first step in changing the world. Those who obfuscate and manipulate it are those who wish to enslave humanity.

“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.” – Flannery O’Connor

Hopefully, you can stomach the following truths.



The New Apartheid Is Uglier Than The First

From our CHURCH REFORM series.

Israel is an apartheid country that is revved up by the anti-Christ spirit of “Hate Thy Neighbor.”

It has repudiated the Prince of Peace’s message of neighborly love and peace, and has embraced the genocidal spirit of conquest, terror, and subjugation, which has injected into the Middle East a cesspool of conflict and hate that has begun to metastasize worldwide.

However, if one truly believes the Jewish-dominated media, their fake news, and their constant barrage of “Holocaust” movies, one genuinely thinks that there’s only one group of people that everyone on earth hates: Jews. That’s how effective the brainwashing has been.

But when one wakes up from the media’s induced stupor, one realizes that Jews are themselves the victimizers who camouflage themselves as victims.

Said deception could not be more evident than with the new Apartheid in Israel, which is not only uglier than the one that took shape in South Africa, but also disgustingly more barbaric.

Social Reengineering

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series.

The family is God’s plan. It is comprised of father, mother, children, uncles, aunts, etc. It begins, endures, and persists throughout the ages via the marriage covenant.

However, many don’t like what God has designed, so they arbitrarily chopped it up and redesigned it to fit their own purposes.

1. Family Appellations are being ascribed to people who should not be addressed as such.

Father. One is only a father when those who call him thus come from his loins. Many use this appellation improperly by purposely putting aside its intrinsic definition.

Daughters-in-law call their fathers-in-law “dad”, adopted children call their male caretakers “dad”, and Catholics call their meeting overseer “father”.

In addition to one’s natural father, only God can be called Father (or Heavenly Father). After all, He’s our creator and the source of the spiritual part of our being, just like an earthly father is the source of one’s biological composition.

Mother. One is only a mother when those who call her thus come from her womb. Again, many use this parental title improperly by brushing aside its intrinsic definition.

Sons-in-law call their mothers-in-law “mom”, adopted children call their female caretakers “mom”, and Catholics call Mary, the biological mother of Jesus, “mother”.

Uncle and Aunt. Many parents force their kids to call friends of the family “Uncle” and “Auntie”, thus deceiving their children about the true nature of said designations.

The concept of family has been misleadingly redefined to include those who are not blood-related. A ridiculous notion that has no biblical ground.

People are given first names for a reason. Use them.

2. Marriage has also been fallaciously reformulated to include homosexual partners. Those behind said redefinition have absolutely no idea what the purpose of marriage is. Otherwise, they would have never proposed such idiocy.

From the very beginning, marriage has always been a covenant by which two families consent to have their offspring, one male and one female, joined together as one for the purpose of making children. Without it there would be no worthwhile continuation of society.

Homosexuals can’t produce children. Their inclination is a sexual deviancy that not even animals display. How they dare call their coupling “marriage” is ludicrous, to say the least.

Conclusion: “Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?” Galatians 4:16

” ‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD.” Isaiah 55:8


Mothers And Their Sons

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series.

Mothers, especially widows and single moms, have to walk a fine line when it comes to dealing with their sons. Otherwise, they will constantly butt heads.

The reason is because man was created to be the head of woman.

“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

Interestingly, in a relationship between mother and son where the father is deceased or never present, the elder son is the one who, in a spiritually and biblically authoritative sense, replaces the father. See Of Authority and Christians.

In said situations mothers usually end up being quite smothering and controlling. Even Jesus, in the only two intimate interactions with his biological mother that are biblically recorded, found Himself butting heads with her.

“His mother said to Him, ‘Son, why have You treated us this way? Behold, Your father and I have been anxiously looking for You.’ And He said to them, ‘Why is it that you were looking for Me? Did you not know that I had to be in My Father’s house?’ ” Luke 2:48-49

“On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.” “Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.” John 2:1-4

It’s quite telling when the God of the Universe, while a man, had to pry his authority from his human, biological mother. See Is Mary the Mother of God?

Mothers must allow their sons to spread their wings and not be overbearing. However, this in no way reneges a mother’s protective instinct and maternal duty, nor does it revoke the honor and respect a son must show his mother.

Consequently, mothers and their sons have to walk a fine line, using wisdom from above, to avoid butting heads.

“The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. James 3: 17


Parenthood

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series.

To be a parent is to hold the most important office in the world.

The traditional and biblical roles of parents are thus: 1) the father as the breadwinner, and 2) the mother as the homemaker and nurturer. Both functions carry equal weight, even though the husband is the head of the family.

Unfortunately, feminism has convinced many women that being a full-time mother is inferior to that of a breadwinner, and that man should not be the head of his family.

The sad result has been the emasculation of man along with children being unrighteously nurtured, which in turn has created instability in our society.

The same unrighteousness also materializes when the emasculated father, within a society that more and more favors woman above man in the workforce, fails to financially provide for his family, which then forces the mother to become the primary breadwinner as well as causing her nurturing duties to suffer.

Mothers can work or exercise their calling/talent/aptitude at some point, preferably on a part-time basis after the children have reached a certain maturity (and full time if they wish after the children have grown into adulthood), and as long as it doesn’t interfere with their maternal and wifely obligations. Indeed, mothers should decide what is truly important to them: the workforce or their family.

Proverbs 31: 10-31

If couples end up divorced, which God hates, or biological parents separated, they must not impede each other’s participation in their children’s upbringing (unless there’s proven criminality which could endanger the children). They must put aside their pettiness and not use their kids as pawns in a vindictive battle, elsewise it would be pure selfishness. Children need both of their parents.

When planning to get married 1) gentlemen, make sure you are financially ready with a good source of income, and 2) ladies, be willing to put all that you are and have into being wives and mothers. Otherwise your family, especially your children, will pay the consequences of your irresponsibility. Worse, you’ll have to answer to God for your failure as parents.

“Each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.” Romans 14:12


Karma

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series.

“Karma is closely associated with the idea of rebirth in many schools of Asian religions. In these schools, karma in the present affects one’s future in the current life, as well as the nature and quality of future lives – one’s saṃsāra.” – Wikipedia

Others also believe that the déjà vu phenomenon, experienced by millions of people, to be a quick, momentary throwback to a similar juncture in a previous life.

Now if past lives were real, why can’t we remember them with absolute clarity? Especially if we are dearly paying in this life for past life misdeeds.

What is the point in paying for some obscure mistake one is not aware of, or reliving our existence over and over if we can’t remember the previous ones and the reasons we keep coming back?

It doesn’t make any sense.

“It is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment.” Hebrews 9:27

As for the déjà vu phenomenon click here to know what it means.

“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


Muslims And Talmudic Jews

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series.

Muslims believe in Jehovah, and in Jesus whom they accept 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.

However, 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 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.

From Wikipedia, according to the Talmud:

“In Gittin 56b, 57a a story is mentioned in which Onkelos summons up the spirit of Yeshu [or Yeshua (Jesus)] who sought to harm Israel. He describes his punishment in the afterlife as boiling in excrement.”

“In addition, at the 1240 Disputation of Paris, Donin presented the allegation that the Talmud was blasphemous towards Mary, the mother of Jesus (“Miriam” in Hebrew) and this criticism has been repeated by many Christian sources. The texts cited by critics include Sanhedrin 67a, Sanhedrin 106a, and Shabbath 104b.”

Thus it appears that Muslims are much closer to Christ than are Jews.

“Whoever is not with me is against me.” Matthew 12:30

See Israel is the Problem.


Gentiles

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series.

In the bible the word Gentiles refers to non-Hebraic nations.

In the Old Testament the Hebrew word Goyim is used to point to it, whereas in the New Testament it is the Greek word Ethnos.

Its subtext is usually nations that do not believe in Jehovah, the true God in heaven. Today, they are no more Hebrews, they are all dead. Hence, the need for the word Gentiles is no longer of use in our faith, especially as Jesus Christ came to be the Savior of the whole world.

“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


Is The Pope Peter’s Successor?

From our CHURCH REFORM series.

Why do Catholics believe that?

What’s A Saint?

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series.

Biblically, a saint is a Christian who willingly separates himself from the ways of the world and is grafted unto Christ the Lord, living solely to please Him.

“Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.”  Revelation 14:12

A Saint is not a title that the Catholic Church decides to arbitrarily confer on some Christian.

“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” 1 Corinthians 14:33

Now whether a Christian is a true Saint or not can only be resolved by God and not by man.

“The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

Still, all true Christians are called to be Saints.

“To all… called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 1:7

To Infinity And Beyond

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

Infinity: Finite And Infinite
Thoughts on the eternal

Thoughts on the Eternal by Laisk Serg

To be finite is to be a small part of infinity.

We humans are finite or partial and possess only finite minds, therefore we cannot comprehend nor grasp the whole which is infinity, God’s domain. And because God Himself is infinite and not finite, He is thus whole and perfect, thereby not partial; ergo He’s uncreated in His infinity.

However, because we’re created (i.e., plucked out of infinity), thus limited, finite, and partial, we cannot fathom anything that is not created, just the way we cannot truly fathom God’s perfection because of our imperfection.

Consequently, we, finite, imperfect, and partial beings, know and understand only in part, but one day we will know and understand fully – when we are reattached to the Eternal Lord in His infinity (or eternity), from hence we came.

“For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial passes away… Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully…” 1 Corinthians 13: 9,10,12

Beyond: Our Mortality
antonio-de-pereda-allegory-of-vanity

Allegory of Vanity by Antonio De Pereda

It is quite strange that our mortality, especially during the stronger years of our lives, doesn’t much occupy our thoughts. It seems that the vigor of our younger selves always manages to steal away the reality of what awaits us at the end of the journey.

You would think, because death is only a breath away from spoiling our fleshly abode, that we would stop and think of the seemingly futility of it all; but no, we don’t.

As a matter of fact, in spite of the dreadful end which awaits us, we work without ceasing, generation after generation, to build as wonderful and magnificent a world as possible.

The result so far would not have been possible if we had stopped to seriously ponder on our guaranteed demise; and even though we know for a fact that we will die, we continually act as if we will not.

Which begs the question: why are we so disposed?

“He has also set eternity in the human heart.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

That’s why.

God has set eternity in our hearts, and no one can remove it.

“I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it.” Ecclesiastes 3:14

The eternal spark that burns deep within our souls powers up our productivity and causes our lives to be fruitful. It’s almost as if we “instinctively” know our endeavors have eternal strings attached.

Consequently, our work is anything but futile since whatever we do we do for God, who alone holds the master plan which contains the end result of our combined labor.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23

The account of our earthly toil will be settled in eternity by the great Lord Himself, with either a reward or a punishment.

“Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness… And throw the worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 25:21,30

Similar compensations will also be meted out for our obedience or disobedience to His commandments.

“Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.” John 5: 28-29

Turning Humans Into Pavlov Dogs

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

Classical conditioning (also known as Pavlovian or respondent conditioning) is a learning process in which an innate response to a potent stimulus comes to be elicited in response to a previously neutral stimulus.” From Wikipedia

“A bully pulpit is a position sufficiently conspicuous to provide an opportunity to speak out and be listened to. This term was coined by President Theodore Roosevelt…” From Wikipedia

Bully PulpitHave you ever wondered why politicians adopted and spread propaganda-style the expression Bully Pulpit, a term that reeks of religious connotation?

First, allow us to advance an explanation as to the true meaning of the term Bully Pulpit, not the “terrific platform” meme that was peddled by Theodore Roosevelt and his ilk.

When Christians go to church they are “bullied” to no end by a preacher who stands behind a “pulpit”. The reason it is qualified as bullying is because the preacher single-handedly commandeers Christ’s authority unto himself, as he disregards every gathering or assembly law stipulated by Christ and the Apostles in the bible. See Church Services Are NOT Biblical for an exposé.

Christians have been so “properly conditioned and programmed” by the Bully Pulpit practice that politicians salivated with envy, and could not resist the compulsion to appropriate it for their own end.

Who can blame them?

Let’s face it. Bully-Pulpitism is a very effective brainwashing method.

When believers attend church they are not allowed to speak or express their minds, even when the “preacher” spews out false dogmas. They are trained to passively sit in the pews and to robotically say “Amen”. They are thus perfectly molded to accept anything a mortal and fallible man says as long as he happens to stand behind a “pulpit”. Consequently, from a spiritual perspective, the Body of Christ suffers a debilitating paralysis. See Church Services Are NOT Biblical for an exposé.

However, for government leeches such a method is Nirvana or Elysium; Scoundrel Heaven, if you prefer.

The Pavlov Experiment

“Preachers do it and get away with it,” they properly deduced. “Why not use it for our benefit? Most of the work is already done. All we have to do is get the sheeple to associate us with the word ‘pulpit’ and… Abracadabra!”

Hence politicians have not only arrogated Bully-Pulpitism, they have perfected it to such a degree that Authoritarianism is becoming the norm almost everywhere.

That’s why Presidents, Congressmen, Politicians, and Public Servants of all stripes act all indignant whenever people question their actions or their stands on the issues.

“How dare the sheeple talk back to us? They’re supposed to stay quiet and acquiesce with just ‘Amen’,” they bark.

The political practice of Bully-Pulpitism has become so bad that the People’s Representatives even vote against the will of the people they supposedly represent, not feigning so much as a modicum of care for the wishes of their constituents. Said disposition has even trickled down to cops who have turned savagely wild on those they have sworn to protect and serve.

To further cement the process, these government rascals, in cahoots with  the Medical Community, have engineered a solution for those who dare think for themselves and question “Authority”. See Of Authority and Christians for an exposé.

They classify them as mentally ill.

In reality, such a dubious “scientific” diagnosis should have been expected. It wasn’t long ago that these whorish pseudo-scientists incisively concluded that two-year-olds who naturally act out suffer from Oppositional Defiant Disorder. It must be that behind their own “pulpit” of Make Believe or Make Disease, Anti-Authoritarianism – as a “sickness” – is a natural extension or progression of that invented kiddy disorder.

CONCLUSION

Bully-Pulpitism originated in the Church. It then extended to the political arena where savvy propagandists made sure it infiltrated every stratum of society. Unfortunately for all, it has turned fully cognitive humans into pitiful Pavlov dogs.

“We must obey God rather than human beings!” Acts 5:9

When Bad Things Happen

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

“When disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it?” Amos 3: 6

When bad things happen, it is because the Lord purposed it.

“And the Lord said to Satan, ‘Behold, all that Job has is in your hand…'” Job 1:11

In effect, God handed Job over to Satan. As a result, disaster struck his house.

“…another also came and said, ‘Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, and behold, a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people and they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you.’ ” Job 1: 18, 19

“Then Satan… smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head…” Job 2: 7

THE HANDING OVER

God doesn’t hand anyone over to the dark forces unless such a one has sinned. And all of us have sinned, so we’re all fair game.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” Romans 3: 23

“Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.” Psalm 51: 5

Many will say that Job was a righteous man and always made sure his sins and the sins of his family were covered.

“When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would make arrangements for them to be purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, ‘Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.’ This was Job’s regular custom.” Job 1: 5

Job's children killed by Satan

Job’s children killed by Satan.

Were Job’s children sinning? Of course. So why the use of Perhaps? It was Job thinking, fooling himself, like many parents do today.

So even though the bible doesn’t openly reveal it, deep down Job knew about the unrighteous ways of his children. Parents always know.

Otherwise, what was that obsession or custom Job had in offering a burnt sacrifice for each of them?

It’s also no surprise God allowed them all to be killed.

They were most likely spoiled beyond redemption, with hearts lifted up, souls that ignored their Maker (hence Job offering sacrifices for them instead of them for themselves), and a lifestyle that welcomed excess – causal effects of their father’s unfathomable success, not unlike the sons of the prophet Eli.

“His (Job’s) sons used to hold feasts in their homes…” Job 1:4

“Take care lest you forget the LORD your God by not keeping his commandments and his rules and his statutes, which I command you today, lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God…” Deuteronomy 8: 11 – 14

“Now the sons of Eli were corrupt and did not know the Lord… the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.” 1 Samuel 2:12, 4:11

Job might have been “blameless and upright” (Job 1:1), but he was also sinning in a way only God could see.

“The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16: 7

He was conceited and arrogant, a sin that finally surfaced during the handing over.

“Know then that God has wronged me…” Job 19: 6

Really? God wronged Job?

At that point, Job had lost sight of the fact that none of us is righteous on our own. Therefore we cannot be wronged by God. Our righteousness solely comes from God’s election of us as His children, and as such only said choice causes us to become righteous.

When we become Christians, we become righteous through Jesus’s doing, hence neither righteous nor good in our own right.

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5: 21

Even when we follow His commandments, we are not following our will but His, and therefore whatever good deed we end up doing becomes His since it was set in motion by His law.

“When you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have done only that which was our duty to do.'” Luke 17:10

So, to set Job the Aramean straight, in addition to handing him over to Satan, God sent a Buzite fellow, a non-Hebrew like Job, purposely named Elihu or “my God is He” – shade of Jesus – to point out Job’s flaw to him.

“Elihu’s wrath aroused because Job justified himself rather than God…” Job 32: 2

Elihu realized there was more than a hint of vanity in Job’s life.

“In this you are not righteous… for God is greater than man.” Job 33:12

Prosperity and success had caused Job to become prideful and self-righteous.

“He was the greatest of all the men of the east.” Job 1: 3

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16: 18

Job had become so full of himself that he thought he was on par with God, a Prince who could approach the Almighty on an equal footing.

“Behold, here is my signature; Let the Almighty answer me! And the indictment which my adversary has written, Surely I would carry it on my shoulder, I would bind it to myself like a crown. I would declare to Him the number of my steps; Like a prince I would approach Him.” Job 31: 35-37

He injected the poison of his conceit and self-righteousness in what was his true righteousness, the righteousness of God.

God appears to Job

God appears to Job.

But when Jehovah appeared to him, the Glory and Holiness of the Almighty made Job realize how small, insignificant, and wretched he really was.

“My ears had heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.” Job 45: 5,6

As sin takes control of us, it spoils the righteousness we have been handed. It’s the fly in the ointment, the leaven in the lump.

“Dead flies putrefy the perfumer’s ointment…” Ecclesiastes 10: 1

“A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” Galatians 5: 9

Even the Apostle Paul experienced the handing over. But in Paul’s case it was a preemptive strike.

“In order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.” 2 Corinthians 12: 7

That is why Paul was so strict with Christians of his time. He knew sin needed to be dealt with. And many times the only way to deal with it is for the sinner to be handed over to the dark forces.

“I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.” 1 Corinthians 5:5

When our flesh is destroyed, our sinful nature is henceforth dashed to pieces like pottery; and God’s iron scepter is made evident in our lives as he keeps us in line, away from sins.

“You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” Psalm 2:9

“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

THE MARK OF PERFECTION

When we sin, we basically tell God He’s not our Father.

Consequently, our sinful actions identify us as belonging to a different household, that of the dark forces. So, like the father of the prodigal son, God says, “You want it, you got it.”

Job and his wife

“Why don’t you curse God and die?” Job 2:9 Job’s wife curses him.

The handing over may seem harsh, but it is to help us get rid of sin, thus making us perfect.

“Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5: 48

To be perfect is to rule over sin. And how do we do that?

1) Constantly judge ourselves and recognize our sins.

“But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged by God in this way.” 1 Corinthians 11: 31

2) Wholeheartedly repent to God and other offended parties (not to a “catholic priest”). The prodigal son sinned against God and against his father, so he repented accordingly.

“The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'” Luke 15: 21

3) Follow God’s commandments.

“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.” John 14: 21

Unfortunately, sin is quite insidious. It is a disease that’s always at the door, always at the ready to entrap.

“But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4: 7

It sometimes hides itself so deep within our hearts that, like Job, we don’t even realize we’re neck-deep in it.

“The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” Jeremiah 17: 9

So God many times resorts to the handing over in order to remove it.

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” James 1: 2-3

The handing over is a mark of God’s love. He orchestrates it to help those who will learn from it turn their lives around for His glory.

“Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?” Hebrews 12: 7

CONCLUSION

Bad things don’t happen to good people.

“There is no one righteous, not even one.” Romans 3: 10

Bad things happen to sinners, all of us. But in their wake, if we truly repent, we let go of our unrighteousness or self-righteousness and become the righteousness of God.

“But if our unrighteousness brings out God’s righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? May it never be!” Romans 3: 5,6

Once we learn our lesson, and when we’re ready for it, God hands us the pot at the end of the rainbow, containing only the blessings we can handle.

“Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning.” Job 42: 12

It would do us no good for God to bestow upon us all the blessings in the world and in the process lose our soul.

“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” Matthew 16: 26


ADDENDUM: PREEMPTIVE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

The following questions will surely pop up.

1. Does this mean when someone is killed during an accident or a catastrophe that person was beyond redemption?

The answer is Yes and No.

“I will cut off from you the righteous and the wicked…” Ezekiel 21: 4

Yes, it could be. And No, it could also be this:

“No one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.” Isaiah 57: 1

When the righteous are taken away in such a fashion, it simply means that God was done with them, that their mission was accomplished, and that God no longer wanted them to endure the evil in this world. But in the case of Job’s children, it is quite doubtful that they were righteous.

So how can one know which is which?

No one can, except God. He purposely made it thus so there would be no formula to figure Him out.

“God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future.” Ecclesiastes 7:14

It’s one of the reasons those who preach church tithing are sinning, because what they’re saying is that tithing is the guaranteed formula to be financially blessed by God. In the end, even Job wasn’t blessed because he tithed. He didn’t tithe. He was blessed because God chose to bless him. And today God acts no differently, especially as the New Covenant changes everything. See Ministry Money and the Tithe Lie.

Even when we’re doing all that God wants us to do, there’s no telling what will transpire in our lives.

“For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.” 1 Peter 3:17

True faith is the understanding that God does whatever He wants, whenever He wants, however He wants.

“I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” Romans 9: 15

2. Why does the bible mention the righteous if none is righteous?

When God mentions the righteous, it is to be grasped as those who understand that their righteousness is of God and not of themselves.

Even in Job’s case God knew He could turn Job around, and that in the end he would become the righteousness of God. That’s why He told Satan not to take his life.

And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.” Job 2: 6

3. Who created the Devil and why does God use him?

God created the Devil and his demons. God uses them to bring about His ultimate plan and purpose, which is to challenge man’s free will and put through the fire unbelievers, atheists, and Christians alike in order to test their zeal for either the truth of God and Jesus whom He sent or the lies of the evil one and his minions.

4. Doesn’t God violate His own commandment of “Thou shall NOT kill”?

What kind of a stupid question is that? 🙂

That commandment is for us who are the Thou or YOU. He didn’t say You and I shall not kill. He said “YOU shall not kill”. Period. Many have a bad habit of either taking bible verses out of context or adding to God’s word.

From the very beginning God told us we would die if we ate of the forbidden fruit. See The Consequences of Sin.

“…for when you eat from it you will certainly die…” Genesis 2: 17

Man saw fit to disobey and chose death. No need to spin it otherwise. And whether we die of old age or in an accident or by any other means before old age is irrelevant. Death is death.

The “inconvenient” means and timing of our demise don’t make death any less a result of our wrongful choice. So don’t be like Job and say God wronged you by not following the Thou Shall NOT Kill command.

We will all die or be killed someday, it’s just a matter of time. Our death – whether we see it as God “killing” us or not, same difference – and its timing thereof are dictated by the Almighty who uses whatever method and schedule He sees fit to bring about our demise, a consequence of our sinful nature.

We were never given any assurance that we would live beyond the instant we emerged out of our mothers’ wombs. From the moment we came into the world, a death appointment has been scheduled. So every day is a gift. Count your blessings.

“For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.” Philippians 2: 13

Some point to the various killings in the Old Testament to somehow “prove” that God always had a blood lust, and that He often commanded the ancient Hebrews to kill in wars.

What they don’t understand is that the Hebrews then were an extension of God’s army on earth. God used them to remove the wicked from the face of the earth. So when they killed on God’s order in specific and directed circumstances – which cannot be transferred to today’s circumstances –  it was God’s doing, not theirs.

“The LORD your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you…” Deuteronomy 20:4

But, as the prophet Zechariah prophesied, with the advent of Christ everything would change.

” ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6

Now it’s no longer by the might of the sword nor by the power of one’s army, but by the Spirit of Christ that things truly change for the better.

“The wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” James 1:20

Ever since Jesus’s birth, death, and resurrection the world has not been the same.

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5: 17

Those who really know God understand how He operated then and how He operates now, just the way Jesus understood and did not fear those who could kill the body.

“Pilate said to Him, ‘You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I have authority to release You, and I have authority to crucify You?’ Jesus answered, ‘You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above.’ ” John 19: 10-11

“Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10: 28

The only ones who utter such nonsense about the 6th commandment are those who hate God and fail to see that physical death is nothing compared to the eternal death of the soul in hell.

Such a harmful disposition prompts them to spit on the Father’s authority to do as He purposes, and to ignore Jesus’s sacrifice which was offered for the renewal of the world through peace and for the salvation of man’s soul through the New Covenant in His blood.

“But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8: 36

Consequently, remember this:

“Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.” Ecclesiastes 12: 13

Speaking In Tongues

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels…” 1 Corinthians 13:1

There’s quite a polemic within the body of Christ regarding the gift of speaking in tongues.

VARIOUS TONGUES: OF MEN AND OF ANGELS

Biblically speaking, to speak or pray in tongues is to speak or pray in a celestial language. When said language or tongue is being spoken, each endowed individual strikes a unique cadence of sound and heavenly words – hence tongues, plural.

On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues” Acts 19: 4-7

Day of PentecostHowever, at the first Pentecost, speaking in tongues took on a different aspect as well.

Judahite Hebrews, who were born and lived abroad, like the Apostle Paul who was born in Tarsus, Cilicia, were visiting Jerusalem for the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Feast of Weeks, and heard the disciples speak in their various native dialects.

Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Judahites from every nation under heaven... Every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all this which speak Galileans? ” Acts 2: 5 -7

The speaking of foreign languages, as prompted at that time by the Holy Spirit, was for the benefit of these men who were part of the Hebrew House of Ancient Israel.

“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Acts 2: 36

It was also for the benefit of spreading the Gospel worldwide, especially as many foreigners from around the world constantly traveled to Jerusalem, a major trade center at the time.

“And how hear we every man in our own dialect wherein we were born? Parthians, Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and the parts of Lybia, about Cyrene, strangers of Rome, Judahites and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, We do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.Acts 2: 8-12

“Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.” Acts 8:4

The Holy Spirit saw the need at that particular junction to supernaturally prompt many of the disciples to speak in various foreign dialects.

The bestowal of said gift (i.e., to speak in a foreign dialect) still occurs today, albeit not supernaturally like at the first Pentecost but as a talent or an aptitude, since many individuals all over the world are now fluent in more than one language. It thus recalibrates the event at the Tower of Babel where God confounded man’s one universal language into various dialects, and caused them not to understand each other.

“Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Genesis 11: 7

Man’s hope at the Tower of Babel was to reach Heaven (Gen 11:4). Now Heaven reaches down to man in the person of Jesus, using not only the aforementioned gift but a new universal language as well, a heavenly tongue, which itself reaches to the once unreachable Heaven, even unto God Himself.

Christ - el Greco“For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God…” 1 Corinthians 14: 2

However, unlike the supernatural outpouring of common languages at the First Pentecost, the heavenly tongue has kept its supernatural endowment, as it is God’s umbilical cord whereby He supplies His children with divine mysteries.

“…one who speaks in a tongue… utters mysteries in the spirit.” 1 Corinthians 14: 2

As such it is mostly for the benefit of oneself in prayer.

“One who speaks in tongues edifies himself…” 1 Corinthians 14:4

“Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groans which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26

Praying in tongues is something many Christians don’t do for whatever reason, whether out of traditional bias, ignorance, or unbelief. However, it’s one of many spiritual tools or gifts available in the Christian arsenal – just like God created many kinds of fruits and vegetables for all those with different tastes and gustoes.

“Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another mighty works, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of languages, and to still another the interpretation of languages. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.” 1 Cor 12: 7-11

But the day one desires the gift of speaking in heavenly tongues, which increases wisdom in the things above, all one has to do is ask God who gives to all liberally.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all [men] liberally, and without reproach; and it shall be given him.” James 1:5

When one speaks in a heavenly tongue, something is birthed deep inside the spirit man and one is edified.

“For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the spirit.” 1 Corinthians 14: 2

Yet, when we congregate it is better to prophesy in a common language and not speak in tongues.

“But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself, but he that prophesieth edifieth the assembly.” 1 Corinthians 14: 4

The one who prophesies in a common language edifies the body of Christ. But that doesn’t mean he is forbidden to pray in tongues when he’s on his own.

“So, my brothers, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.” 1 Corinthians 14: 39

“I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you.” 1 Corinthians 14: 18

In a congregational setting speaking in heavenly tongues should only occur with the presence of a gifted someone who can interpret.

“The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the assembly may be built up.” 1 Corinthians 14: 5

Otherwise, it’d be a waste of the congregants’ time if someone is edifying himself at the expense of others who can’t be edified at that moment. See Church Services ARE NOT Biblical.

“Nevertheless, in the assembly I would rather speak five words with my mind in order to instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue.” 1 Corinthians 14: 19

CONCLUSION

Many harbor a bias towards speaking in tongues, and fight tooth and nail not to speak it.

They spin the fact that when one speaks to God in a tongue, one actually speaks in one’s native dialect, and therefore others who don’t speak said dialect do not understand what is uttered. But that’s not true. If one speaks one’s own dialect, one’s mind is fruitful, but if one prays in a heavenly tongue, one’s mind is not, but the spirit man is.

David Praying in the Night“For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful.” 1 Corinthians 14: 14

Besides, isn’t it silly to babble in one’s native dialect in a congregation where no one else speaks that language?

And if one suddenly starts speaking in a foreign dialect that he doesn’t understand, prompted by the Holy Spirit like at the first Pentecost, how does he edify himself? He doesn’t. He edifies others who speak that language. But if he speaks in God’s heavenly tongue, he is edified by God Himself as “he utters mysteries in the spirit “.

Speaking in tongues, as Christians came to describe it since its advent at Pentecost, is different in scope than speaking in common dialects or languages. It is of angels while the other is of men. It edifies oneself while its counterpart edifies others.

“The one who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but the one who prophesies builds up the assembly.” 1 Corinthians 14:4

To speak in a heavenly tongue is God-given to build us up individually. As with any gift anyone can choose to accept or reject it.

But why would anyone reject a gift from God?

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1: 17

Jesus And The Sword

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

Many are under the impression that Jesus Christ was a promoter of violence.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The reason they think so is because of certain passages in the bible, which they either misunderstand or take out of context.

SWORD # 1

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to this land. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law–a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ ” Matthew 10: 34-36

Jesus mocked by the soldiers

Mocking Jesus

The sword Jesus was talking about in those verses was not a physical sword to wage war willy-nilly. That sword was to be the conflict within the Hebrew house over who Jesus was. That’s why immediately after, Jesus said this:

“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” Matthew 10: 37

When a household is divided over who Jesus Christ is, it is a household that cannot stand.

“If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.” Mark 3: 25

Further, Jesus (or God) had a contract with the Hebrews. They were supposed to love Him and follow His commandments, which they never did.

However, there was a stipulation in the contract in Deuteronomy 28:

15 “But if you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and do not obey all the commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come and overwhelm you:

25 “The Lord will cause you to be defeated by your enemies…Your corpses will be food for all the scavenging birds and wild animals, and no one will be there to chase them away.”

So when Jesus brought up the subject of the sword, He was also telling the Hebrews that the curses of the contract were about to fall on them, because by rejecting Him and refusing to listen to Him they were not fulfilling their end of the bargain.

The curses did fall on them as God allowed Satan, their father, to unleash his war upon them using the Roman Army in 70 AD.

“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning…” John 8:44

In that sense God “brought the sword” in that specific situation, which was covered under biblical laws and contractual obligations of the Old Covenant.

“I have come to bring fire upon this land, and how I wish it were already kindled!” Luke 12:49

Jesus wanted the fire kindled so He could shut down the Old Covenant and allow free rein to the New.

“The ax lies ready at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” Matthew 3:9

He therefore removed His protection and allowed all the Hebrews to be killed – all who had rejected and crucified Him.

“For those blessed by Him will inherit the land, But those cursed by Him will be cut off.” Psalm 37:22

Consequently, the Hebrew house did not survive.

“Behold, your house is being left to you desolate!” Matthew 23:38

That desolation was the Apocalypse of 70 AD by the Roman Army that saw the end of the Old Covenant and the total annihilation of the Hebrew race – except for those who became Christians and fled beforehand.

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her desolation is near. Then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those who are in the midst of the city must leave, and those who are in the country must not enter the city.” Luke 21: 20,21

SWORD # 2

The following verses are strangely used to promote gun ownership, violence, and even war:

“And He said to them, ‘But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one…’ They said, ‘Lord, look, here are two swords.’ And He said to them, ‘It is enough.’ ” Luke 22: 36, 38

Obviously, those who misunderstand those verses would also misunderstand the modern expression “batten down the hatches”, which means “prepare for a difficult or dangerous situation”. When somebody uses that expression, does someone actually go and literally batten down the hatches? Of course, not.

In the same vein, Jesus was warning the disciples of dangerous times ahead (again, the Apocalypse of 70 AD). He wasn’t ordering them to literally go and buy a sword. It was just an expression like “batten down the hatches”.

Betrayal of Jesus

Betrayal of Jesus

Still, when the disciples showed Him the two swords, He said “It is enough” or “It is plenty”.

That answer was Jesus setting up the disciples in order to truly demonstrate how anti-violence He was. As it turned out, when one of the disciples struck the servant of the High Priest with one of the swords, Jesus without flinching commanded them to put the weapons away.

” ‘Put your sword back in its place,’ Jesus said to him, ‘for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.’ ” Matthew 26:52

He then helped the one who was struck by miraculously healing his ear, even though the wounded was an enemy who came to arrest Him.

Jesus was God who became flesh, and thus always knew what was about to transpire. He was wont to set things up in order to bring about an event or a discussion.

“He asked them, ‘Who do people say I am?’ ” Mark 8: 27

“Go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin.” Matthew 17: 27

” ‘How do you know me?’ Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, ‘I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.’ ” John 1: 48

Further, Jesus always spoke in parables. The “sword” metaphor of Luke 22:36 can be compared to the “leaven” metaphor, which the disciples also misunderstood.

“Now they had forgotten to bring bread, and they had only one loaf with them in the boat. And he cautioned them, saying, ‘Watch out; beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.’

“And they began discussing with one another the fact that they had no bread. And Jesus, aware of this, said to them, ‘Why are you discussing the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Having eyes do you not see, and having ears do you not hear? And do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?’ They said to him, ‘Twelve.’ ‘And the seven for the four thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?’ And they said to him, ‘Seven.’

“And he said to them, ‘Do you not yet understand?’ ” Mark 8:14-21

CONCLUSION

Do you not yet understand that Jesus is anti-violence?

” ‘No more of this!’ And he touched the man’s ear and healed him.” Luke 22:51

Jews And History: Lies Galore

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

“You are of your father the devil…Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8: 44

There are two historical events where Jews went all out with their lies and fabrications: the Bar Kokhba revolt and the Holocaust.

The Bar Kokhba revolt was a Hebrew rebellion against the Romans that supposedly took place between 131 and 135 AD in Judea and spearheaded by someone called Simeon Bar Kosevah. However, it is a spurious historical event that has been dredged up – and possibly invented out of whole cloth – in order to cast doubt on the annihilation of the Hebrew people in 70 AD.

As for the so-called World War 2 “Holocaust“, there’s not one person on earth that has not been exposed to its well-oiled propaganda machine.

Both of these events point to dubious crimes of apocalyptic proportions, while they immensely and unsurprisingly benefit modern-day Israel which was founded in 1948 on the stolen land of Palestine.

FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS

Bust of Josephus

Bust of Josephus

Historian Flavius Josephus is the foremost authority on the events that led to the destruction of the Hebrew people, Jerusalem, and the Hebrew Temple in 70 AD.

He himself was a Hebrew who converted to Christianity upon witnessing firsthand the materialization of Jesus’s prophecies in reference to the destruction of Jerusalem and the annihilation of the Judahite Hebrews who rejected the Messiah.

However, a campaign has been ongoing to discredit the fact that he became a Christian in order to somehow prove that not all non-Christian Hebrews were killed in 70 AD. Still, his writings tell his story:

“At about this time lived Jesus, a wise man. . . He was one who performed surprising deeds and was a teacher of such people as accept the truth with pleasure. He won over many Judahites and many of the Greeks. . .

“When Pilate, upon an indictment brought by the principal men among us, condemned him to the cross, those who had loved him from the very first did not cease to be attached to him. And the tribe of the Christians, so-called after him, has to this day still not disappeared…. He was the Messiah.”

Insulting JesusFirst, notice how he waxed all romantic describing Jesus. And second, why would a Hebrew historian call Jesus the Messiah and a wise man – when Talmudic Jews call Him son of a whore  – unless he was a believer?

Further, he was born Yosef ben Matityahu. The changing of one’s name can find its roots in the Christian tradition.

Many Orthodox Christians still do it upon baptism. Just like Saul became Paul and Simon Bar-Jona became Peter, Yosef ben Matityahu became Flavius Josephus.

THE REVOLT THAT WASN’T

In biblical times, Judahite Hebrews living abroad made the trip every year to Jerusalem for the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Feast of Weeks, which took place right after Passover.

“Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Judahites from every nation under heaven.” Acts 2: 5

However, in AD 70, as they all gathered in Jerusalem God had a surprise for them. They were all about to be slaughtered by the Roman Army. An event that is known as the Apocalypse and the End of the Age of the Hebrews and of Satan’s dominion upon the earth. Hence, the entire Hebrew race was wiped out, except for those who accepted Christ and fled beforehand, like Josephus.

So, if all Hebrews were killed, how was it possible that a Hebrew rebellion took place 60 years after their annihilation? Was it a Zombie apocalypse? 🙂

It either happened with converted Jews (different from Judahite Hebrews) or it didn’t happen at all.

1) If that revolt actually occurred,

a) it would have most likely involved converted Jews from different places that tried to establish themselves in Palestine;
b) it would have been sparked by the Samaritans who were themselves converted Jews and lived in Samaria, next to Judea – they were no strangers to insurrections as they had a series of them during the 5th and 6th centuries;
c) its recorded “occurrence” might in actuality be that of the Apocalypse of AD 70, spun to discredit the fact that all Hebrews were killed then.

2) It most likely didn’t happen at all.

Even recorded history cannot firmly place the origin of the author of the rebellion. Here’s Wikipedia:

“Documents discovered in the 20th century in the Cave of Letters give his original name, with variations: Simeon bar Kosevah (Hebrew: שמעון בר כוסבה‎), Bar Koseva (בר כוסבא) or Ben Koseva (בן כוסבא‎) This may indicate his father or his place of origin was named Kosevah…

“Rabbi Akiva indulged the possibility that Simon could be the Jewish messiah, and gave him the surname ‘Bar Kokhba’ meaning ‘Son of the Star’ in Aramaic. The name Bar Kokhba does not appear in the Talmud but in ecclesiastical sources.

“Rabbinical writers subsequent to Rabbi Akiva did not share Rabbi Akiva’s estimation of ben Kosiva. Akiva’s disciple, Yose ben Halaphta, in the Seder ‘Olam (chapter 30) called him ‘bar Koziba’ (Hebrew: בר כוזיבא‎), meaning, ‘son of the lie’.”

Not even converted Jews can agree on the existence of the leader of the rebellion or who he was or where he came from. Further, this so-called Bar Kokhba revolt is quite doubtful, given that there’s only one fragmented historical account of it. Here’s how Wikipedia views it:

“…based on the single source of the Historia Augusta, regarded as ‘unreliable and problematic’,… The revolt is shrouded in mystery, and only one brief historical account of the rebellion survives… According to Cassius Dio, who likely exaggerated his numbers, 580,000 Jews were killed in the overall operations, and 50 fortified towns and 985 villages were razed to the ground, with many more Jews dying of famine and disease… the writings of the Roman historian concerning the Bar Kokhba revolt survived only as fragments.”

Cave of Bar Kokhba

Cave of Letters? Or any cave will do?

There cannot exist an accurate historical account of an event with just ONE single source and only fragments surviving.

The Apocalypse of AD 70 was not just recorded by Flavius Jospehus but by others as well, including Tacitus and Eusebius. The Gospel accounts were written by four of the Apostles, not one.

This Bar Kokhba revolt sounds actually made up, especially because of the way historical blanks were filled in.

There were NOT 580,000 Judahite Hebrews, nor 50 towns and 985 villages (Jeez!) in Judea at that time, particularly when 60 years earlier 1.2 million Hebrews were slaughtered, and Jerusalem and the countryside were razed to the ground by the Roman Army.

Oh, the lies!

Note how documents about the author of the revolt were “discovered” in the occupied West Bank in the 20th century (1960-1961) in the Cave of Letters. Said “discovery” was quite fortuitous and convenient, especially as it occurred right in the midst of the establishment of a Jewish state on the stolen land of Palestine which they fraudulently claimed as their Abrahamic inheritance, when converted Jews of today are NOT even remotely bloodline descendants of Abraham.

These “documents” were to “prove” that the Hebrews were not wiped out in 70 AD, and that Jesus was a liar when He said:

“Behold, your house is being left to you desolate!” Matthew 23:38

Desolate means barren and lifeless. Or no more Hebrews walking about. All dead in the Apocalypse of 70 AD. D-E-A-D. DEAD. Their land inheritance buried with them. A truth Christians throughout the world knew until converted Jews began their well-financed campaign of lies.

Thus, such a “proof” of the Hebrew race or house not being desolate was important in order to silence the rumbling of those who were against the establishment of the State of Israel by the non-Israelite, non-Hebraic, Ashkenazic-Khazarian Zionists. These land thieves – who lost their homeland Khazaria and were in search of a new land – were markedly portraying themselves as Hebrews “rightfully” returning home when in fact they were not. See Jews are NOT the Hebrews of the Bible.

The “recorded history” of that so-called revolt has all the hallmarks of a made up event by people desperately trying to hide the fact that the Hebrews no longer exist as a people.

The Bar Kokhba revolt is therefore quite suspicious. And as far as we’re concerned it never actually happened, especially as it is interpreted to have been a Hebrew revolt.

THE SPURIOUS HOLOCAUST

Similar discrepancies can be found in the World War 2 Jewish “Holocaust” as well.

According to Red Cross records, apparently only 271,000+ Jews died during that war, as opposed to the 6 millions we’ve been told were systematically slaughtered in gas chambers and incinerated in ovens (hence the term HOLOCAUST or BURNT SACRIFICE), and as compared to the 80 million non-Jews who actually perished.

Most of the Jews on the Red Cross list succumbed to malnutrition, exhaustion, and sicknesses while others were definitely killed. A few of their corpses might have been incinerated to prevent the spread of diseases, while the majority were buried in mass graves.

The fabrication of 6,000,000 dead was just so the Zionists could have a disaster of such enormity that those who oppose the creation of the state of Israel on stolen Palestinian land, which materialized right after World War 2 in 1948, would shut their mouths when that bit of “history” is shoved down their throats.

So far it’s been a successful strategy. Every time critics of the Jewish state rightfully accuse Israel of land theft and genocide, the Zionists throw the Holocaust in their faces as if one evil could justify another.  Basically the Jews took a page from Adolph Hitler who said: “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” See How the Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West.

Let’s put 6 Million corpses in perspective – surmising half were killed and buried and the other half incinerated, just to make it easy on the Holocaust evangelists.

Naked Corpses in a Mass Grave

Naked Corpses in a Mass Grave

Try to bury 3,000,000 bodies in thousands upon thousands of mass graves and have no one discover all of them to this day, except for a handful few. Impossible.

Besides, how would anyone go about identifying millions of Jewish corpses from millions of non-Jewish corpses?

The Nazis had concentration camps for 5,000,000 non-Jews as well with a great number of them also exterminated: Roman Gypsies, twins, Poles and Slavic people, Catholic priests, people with mental illnesses and physical disabilities, Jehovah’s Witnesses, trade unionists, etc.

Could the Holocaust evangelists have been using pictures of non-Jewish corpses (and victims) to tell us they were Jews? How exactly did the propagandists identify these naked corpses? Did non-Jewish corpses smell like putrefying flesh, while Jewish corpses smelled like Chanel No 5? 🙂

Or how about trying to incinerate (Holocaust) 3 Million bodies and see what happens. An average body takes about three hours to burn completely and that’s with today’s technology. 3,000,000 bodies x 3 hours (with today’s cremation process) = 9,000,000 hours or 375,000 days or 1,027 years. In other words, the Germans would still be burning bodies of so-called Jewish victims, even if they were trying to incinerate just 500,000 of them, let alone 3,000,000.

Old Fashioned Incinerators

A few Nazi Old Fashioned World War 2 Incinerators that were mostly to burn clothes of dead prisoners, hence the naked corpses.

Now imagine the Holocaust (or incineration) of 6,000,000 corpses, as it is the only way to explain the absence of the thousands upon thousands of mass Jewish graves.

To incinerate all of these bodies in just a few years would have required an operation of such magnitude that hundreds upon hundreds – if not thousands upon thousands – of old-fashioned crematories, which required more than 3 hours (probably 6 or more)  to fully burn one body, would have had to be lined up on field after field after field after field, while leaving behind 15,000 tons of ashes.

Is there any proof of these fields of ovens and of their subsequent myriad dunes of ashes that would have resembled the desert of Abu Dhabi? We didn’t think so.

Steven Spielberg’s simplistic and propagandist movie Schindler’s List, with its scene of one makeshift, open-air crematorium (seriously?), where the stacked-up bodies would have never fully burned, thus exacerbating the problem, could use a good incineration. 🙂

Desert Dunes in Abu Dhabi

Further, what about the needed manpower and the sheer expense of it all, especially in the midst of a World War that required from the Reich every available man as well as an unfathomable amount of money?

Just to round up 6,000,000 people is no laughing matter and no easy task to accomplish. It’s like purposing to scour an entire continent in search of needles in scattered haystacks. In Germany alone, the Jews were a tiny minority which, according to a 1933 census, was approximately 505,000 people out of a total population of 67 million. Things get even more complicated when one takes into account all of Europe, which basically had the same slanted statistics.

If there were truly 6 million German and European Jews eliminated, the Nazis, with a reputation for efficiency, would have never gone through such a complex procedure to kill them. According to the Jewish propaganda machine, the masterly Germans did the following:

1) rounded up “millions” upon “millions” of Jews (they’d have needed thousands upon thousands upon thousands of trucks and soldiers, while simultaneously fighting a world war – Pft! Yeah, right!);

2) imprisoned them (they’d have needed entire city-like prisons);

3) fed them (let’s not even go there);

4) threw them in gas chambers (which never existed);

5) incinerated them (more lies);

6) got rid of the ashes (any picture of Nazi soldiers doing that?).

Such a deliberately dumb and complex procedure to kill humans, if it were real, would have nothing to envy a Rube Goldberg machine.

Shooting the Jews on sight would have been more effective, not to mention cheaper and with less manpower and infrastructure. That’s exactly what the Jewish Bolsheviks, who took over the Russian government in the 1910s, did when they massacred 66 million Christians, including 200,000 members of the Christian clergy, and destroyed 40,000 churches. Now, that was a REAL holocaust.

“An important objective study, which is suppressed, is the 1948 report by the International Red Cross, covering its activities during World War II (1942-1945) in the camps maintained by the German authorities. They were allowed to deliver over one million parcels of food, clothing and medicine to the inmates.

“It stated (that) their efforts were hindered not by the Germans but by the Allied blockade of Germany and (that) the dire situation in Germany during the final months of the war was due to ‘the barbarous aerial warfare of the Allies’ (carpet bombing). It also stated that large numbers of ‘the three million or so European Jews avoided internment altogether’.

“Did they say 3 million? (It seems there was a massive migration of Jews out of Europe in the 1930’s to America and in the 1940’s to [Palestine].) There is no mention whatsoever of genocide, gas chambers, death showers, poison gas, etc.; quite the contrary. In lengthy books about World War II written by Churchill and Eisenhower, there is not a single mention of Jews being genocided in Nazi ‘death camps’,” explained Michael Rivero of WRH.

In addition, concentration camps in World War 2 were not just for Jews. There existed many of them all over the world for other people as well, including for Japanese in the US, for German refugees and Swedish communists in Sweden, for German anti-Nazis/Austrians/Spaniards in France, for Brits/Americans/Australians/and others in China, and for the above-mentioned 5,000,000 non-Jews throughout Europe.

But, hey, only Jews are important. See The Chosen People Syndrome.

CONCLUSION

When it comes to Jews and their history, take it all with a bucket of salt, not just a grain, especially since Ashkenazi Jews have been hard at work fabricating “facts” since the 18th century.

Notice the Israeli sniper’s bullet right through the heart of the deceased Palestinian boy in the foreground.

All these fabrications and lies have one main purpose: to prop up the illegitimate and Apartheid State of Israel, a cancer on the earth and the very reason for all the problems in the Middle East today.

“Every time anyone says that Israel is our only friend in the Middle East, I can’t help but think that before Israel we had no enemies in the Middle East,” revealed John Sheehan, a Jesuit Priest.

The civilized world must bring to justice all avowed Zionists, along with their supporters and financiers, for their continuous Holocaust of the Palestinians and their incessant theft of Arab lands.

Shame on all those, especially the US Government and Zionist “Christians”, who are enabling and allowing this situation to persist! It is the greatest ongoing injustice of our lifetime and the single cause of instability in the world.
