Are Jews The Israelites Of The Bible? (Shorter Version)

The Awkward Moment When Jews Realize They’re The Goyim

The number one biblical verse used by Zionist Jews and Zionist Christians alike to justify dispossessing the Palestinians of their land is this one:

“On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, ‘To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates….'” Genesis 15:18

Abraham and Hagar

Abraham sends Hagar and Ishmael away

By descendants God definitely meant the same biological bloodline, the same DNA, actual grandchildren of Abram/Abraham. Not spiritual progeny. As even a cursory study would show, those today who are known as Jews are not remotely bloodline descendants of Abraham.

They are in fact the non-Semitic and non-Israelite Ashkenazim and Sephardim, who in later times joined small numbers of other races that converted to Judaism/Pharisaism: Polish, Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, etc. These latter ones form a minority known as European Jews who, when coupled with the Ashkenazim, constitute a majority against the darker-skinned Samaritan, Sephardic, and African Jews; and none of these groups can claim to be of Abraham’s bloodline.

However, it is very important to understand what the bible and history have to say about the majority of converted Jews, the people known as Ashkenazim and Sephardim, while bearing in mind that 1) Abraham was a descendant of Shem – hence the term Semite or Shemite; 2) his scion Jacob and his twelve sons were the true biblical Hebraic Israelite nation with whom God had the Old Covenant (not with converted Jews); 3) the true Israelite nation no longer exists, and their land inheritance expired with them.

“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

Passion Week: Truth And Fiction

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

By Biblicism Institute

Just like we celebrate Christmas in December instead of September (see Is Christmas Pagan?), we celebrate Passion Week on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, but Jesus did not die on a Friday and nor did He rise from the dead on a Sunday.

Still, those are celebratory and remembrance days chosen to commemorate what the Good Lord has done for us.

“Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord.” Romans 14:6

Crucifixion by Giulio Procaccini

THE TRUE TIMELINE

The word of God is quite revealing and never disappoints, especially if one takes the time to dig in.

As we delve into the timeline of Christ’s death and resurrection, keep in mind that in Jesus’s day and throughout the nations of the world, the day started at sunrise and ended before sunrise of the next day.

However, for the ancient Hebrews the day started at sunset and ended before sunset of the next day, which was to differentiate their practice from the rest of the world, as well as fitting said observance into how God created things in the beginning.

“God called the light ‘day,’ and the darkness he called ‘night. And there was evening, and there was morning–the first day.” Genesis 1:5

Using the non-Hebraic, old world system of tabulating the days, the Passion Week timeline is as follows:

Tuesday Night: Passover Night. Jesus ate the Passover Meal with His Disciples (Matthew 26:30, Mark 14:26).

Later on, Judas betrayed Him in the Garden of Gethsemane and He was taken prisoner by the Temple guards (Matthew 26:45-49, Mark 14:41-45, Luke 22:47-48, John 18:1-8).

That same night the Sanhedrin unanimously decided that Jesus deserved death (Matthew 26:59 – 68, Mark 14:55 – 65, Luke 22:63 – 65), while Peter denied Him three times (Matthew 26:69 – 75, Mark 14:66 – 72, Luke 22:56 – 62, John 18:17, 25 – 27).

Wednesday: Passover Day. Early morning, Pilate was unable to release Jesus because of the unruly crowd that was close to rebellion (Luke 23:13 – 15, John 18:31 – 38).

Jesus was scourged, then crucified at 9 a.m. or the third hour of the day (Mark 15:25), and finally expired at 3 p.m. or the ninth hour of the day (Matthew 27:46-47, Mark 15:34-35).

Just before sunset, He was entombed (Matthew 27:57-61, Mark 15:42-47, Luke 23:50-55, John 19:38-42). Passover was over.

At sunset began the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and no work was to be performed until next day sunset. It was called a “special Sabbath” by the Judahites.

“and the next day was to be a special Sabbath.” John 19:31

Thursday: Pilate gave the religious leaders authorization to station guards at the Tomb (Matthew 27:62-66).

At sunset, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices for Jesus’s body (Mark 16:1, Luke 23:56).

Friday Sunset: Start of the weekly Sabbath rest (Luke 23:56).

Resurrection by Carl Bloch

Saturday: In the afternoon, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary checked on Jesus’s tomb (Mark 16:1). Just before sunset, Jesus rose from the dead.

Sunday Morning: Christ’s disciples discovered the already empty tomb, as Mary Magdalene and the other women showed up with the spices (Matthew 28:2-8, Mark 16:2-8, Luke 24:1-12, John 20:1-10).

Just like Jesus prophesied, He spent 3 full days and 3 full nights entombed.

From Wednesday afternoon to Saturday afternoon. 72 hours. 3 days (Wednesday-Thursday, Thursday-Friday, Friday-Saturday) and 3 Nights (Wednesday Night, Thursday Night, Friday Night).

“For just as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights, in like manner the Son of man shall be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Matthew 12:40

THE ORIGIN OF THE CRUCIFIXION DAY CONFUSION

It started with a Bad Translation from the Greek in Mark 15:42 and snowballed from there.

Popular translation:

“And now when the evening was come, because it was preparation day, that is, the day before the Sabbath…”

Biblicism Institute Translation (in bold color):

“And now as the evening was approaching, because everyone had to get ready, that is to say, prior to the Sabbath…”

(Please see Bad Translation for a detailed word for word explanation of our version of the translation.)

By translating Mark 15:42 as the popular version does (i.e., by linking and hinting that preparation day was the day before the sabbath, when there is no word day in either Greek expression), people came to believe that the need for the disciples to prepare had to be fulfilled before the weekly Sabbath sunset which was supposedly at hand, with only a few hours left following Christ’s expiration on the cross. Not true.

The reason the disciples had to get ready for the Sabbath was because the day after Christ’s crucifixion, or Thursday, was the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread – which always took place after Passover, was to start in a few hours at sunset following Christ’s crucifixion, and went on for seven days, while no customary work was to be performed on that first day as it was called a “special Sabbath” by the Judahites.

Consequently, they had to prepare not only for the first day of the Feast (special Sabbath) but for the weekly Sabbath as well, which was just two days away. Add to that the need to get Jesus’s body down from the cross for a proper burial, and you had one group of people who were in a rush to make their necessary household arrangements.

In the end, the popular version of Mark 15:42 made people think that the crucifixion of Christ occurred on a Friday, when it actually happened on Passover Wednesday.

IS THE WORD EASTER OF PAGAN ORIGIN?

The enemies of Christ force themselves to believe that the word Easter is of Babylonian pagan origin and that it refers to the worship of the sun.

Nothing could be further from the truth, especially when one takes into account that the word pagan was created by Christians to refer to heathen superstitions.

How Easter, which celebrates Christ’s resurrection, can be deemed pagan is not only ludicrous but downright intellectually brutish.

First, the word Easter is of Saxon origin, not Babylonian; and of the same meaning with its German cognate Ostern.

“Because the English Anglo/Saxon language originally derived from the Germanic, there are many similarities between German and English,” writes author Nick Sayers. “Many English writers have referred to the German language as the ‘Mother Tongue!’ The English word Easter is of German/Saxon origin and not Babylonian as Alexander Hislop falsely claimed. The German equivalent is Oster. Oster (Ostern being the modern day equivalent) is related to Ost which means the rising of the sun, or simply in English, east. Oster comes from the old Teutonic form of auferstehen / auferstehung, which means resurrection, which in the older Teutonic form comes from two words, Ester meaning first, and stehen meaning to stand. These two words combine to form erstehen which is an old German form of auferstehen, the modern day German word for resurrection.

Second, if Easter were of pagan origin and really meant the worship of the sun, like the enemies of Christ believe, it would universally be known all around the world by the same supposedly “pagan” name.

For instance, in French Easter is called Pâques and in Spanish Pascua, both derived from the Greek Pascah meaning Passover. And Passover was the time when the resurrection took place.

Third, if Easter is really about worshiping the sun, how come Christians don’t worship the sun? That’s because it’s not and we don’t. The stupidity of the satanic enemies of Jesus who constantly attack our Christian faith knows no bounds. We Christians don’t worship the sun, we worship the Son.

Maybe they should focus on improving their spelling skills instead, because twisting Easter to mean sun worship is a pathetic and ridiculous ploy.

WHAT ABOUT EASTER EGGS?

Another way the enemies of Christ attack the Easter celebration is through the use of Easter Eggs in many cultures, a practice that is not at all universal. The world capital of Decorated Easter Eggs is Ukraine, with their Pysanky.

Pysanky

The most popular charge against the Easter festivities compares them to pagan customs:

“As in many ancient cultures, Ukrainians worshiped a sun god, Dazhboh. The sun was important – it warmed the earth and thus was a source of all life. Eggs decorated with nature symbols became an integral part of spring rituals, serving as benevolent talismans,” expounds Wikipedia.

Yet, when you go to the Wikipedia page of the “god” Dazhboh or Dadzbóg, this is what is written:

“Dadzbóg was one of the major gods of Slavic mythology, most likely a solar deity and possibly a cultural hero.”

Most likely, possibly, blah, blah, blah.  That’s not history, that’s speculation. To confuse matters even more, according to a Ukrainian source the legend was this one:

“The Hutzuls––Ukrainians who live in the Carpathian Mountains of Western Ukraine––believe that the fate of the world depends upon the pysanka. As long as the egg decorating custom continues, the world will exist.”

But that’s not all, there is more confusion ahead. Vox explains:

“The first historical references we have to an Easter Bunny date to the 16th-century German tale. According to this legend, a mysterious creature named Oschter Haws, or Easter Hare, visited children while they slept and rewarded them for their good behavior (similar to Santa). The children made nests for the hare, which would then lay colored eggs in them. The tale was then brought to America by German immigrants in the 18th century.

“According to another legend, an egg merchant named Simon of Cyrene was forced to put down his egg basket in order to help Jesus carry his cross to where he would be crucified. When Simon returned to his basket, he found that his eggs had been miraculously decorated.”

The truth is no one really knows for sure about these so-called legends and theories. In other words, the constant assaults on Easter (and on anything Christian, really) are based on pure speculations that no one can agree on, let alone be certain of.

Many cultures incorporate their own local traditions in Christian festivities, whereas others subjugate previous practices into their Christian holidays (see Is Christmas Pagan? to see how and why they subdued these customs).

Do these rituals somehow invalidate the reality of Christ’s birth, crucifixion, and resurrection, which occurred in Judah (Judea) about 2,000 years ago? No.

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

Are they necessary for the celebration? No. If you don’t want to use them, don’t. There’s no biblical directive that says you should.

“Holding faith and a good conscience.” 1 Timothy 1:19

Do they cause what Jesus did for us to become less impactful? No.

“Everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.” Ecclesiastes 3:14

Do they make the festivities more special? If those who employ them do so unto the Lord, Yes.

“And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.” Colossians 3:23

But what about these Easter Eggs? If those who use them believe that eggs relate to Easter symbolically, that the hard shell contains new life, similar to the tomb of Jesus which contained his resurrection body, then it’s being done unto the Lord.

“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

CONCLUSION

Entombment of Christ by Carl Bloch

Passion Week is about God’s greatest gift to mankind: salvation of the soul through Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection from the dead.

“The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

That’s why Christians set aside two days to celebrate such momentous, world-changing, and life-altering events.

Sunday was chosen as Resurrection Remembrance Day (or Resurrection Sunday or Easter Sunday) because Christ’s disciples discovered the empty tomb on a Sunday, that’s when they knew Jesus really rose from the dead.

Friday was chosen by Christians as Crucifixion Remembrance Day (or Good Friday) because it’s close to the weekend. That way the celebratory days of both crucifixion and resurrection could go on uninterrupted, as opposed to sticking Crucifixion Remembrance Day in the middle of the week on a Wednesday.

So, to all the satanic enemies of Christ who are peddling their fiction about Easter being the worship of the sun, or pagan (lol), we say: “My God beat your god, deal with it.”

And leave Passion Week’s Easter alone.

“…that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas (Peter), then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time…” 1 Corinthians 15:4-6

Life, Death, And The Afterlife

Life Leads To Death Leads To Eternal Life Or Eternal Death
C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

Are you afraid of death?

Don’t be.

LIFE AND DEATH

Think about this. You did not give Life to yourself. How you grew in the womb is a mystery, even to scientists. Sure, they can explain it in terms of biology, but can they replicate it in a lab without using the materials (DNA, sperm, eggs, etc.) that God provided?

Even if they could, would their creation have Life? That’s the crux. How on earth do Life and physical growth really occur together in the womb?

Only God knows.

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalms 139:13

FetusWhen you die Life leaves your body, but your body remains and immediately starts to decay. The body is there, but there’s no Life.

Whether big or small as a fetus, the body is distinct from Life. Life gives life to a body of any size. The One who puts Life in your body removes it upon the death of the body – whether that death is natural or induced.

Who puts Life there? God. Where does that Life go upon death? Back to God.

“…and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.” Ecclesiastes 12:7

Then God is the one you’ll be seeing after you die. Because the Life that leaves your body upon death is YOU. The real YOU. Complete with the good and the bad. All engraved in YOU.

“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8

THE AFTERLIFE

The Way To Eternal Life

Ask yourself these fundamental questions.

Can a sinful person stand in front of a sinless God? Can an imperfect man stand in the presence of a perfect Creator?

No and Yes.

On your own you can’t do it: a sure recipe for eternal death (aka Hell).

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

“He will say… ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’ ” Matthew 25:41

But with Christ you can. Yes, you can.

Suffer the Children“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

When you accept Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, His blood washes you clean.

” ‘Come now, let us settle the matter,’ says the LORD. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.’ ” Isaiah 1:18

“…wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” Psalm 51:7

“For this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matthew 26:28

And when you ask Christ to live in you, the two of you become one person, one Life. With Christ in you, the perfect God will see the perfect Son in you.

“If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.” Romans 8:10

Consequently, the process of salvation is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

“That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” Romans 10: 9-10

Judgment Day

Christians and non-Christians are not treated equally upon death.

1) True Christians, who follow God’s commandments, go to be with the Lord when they die.

“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8

“Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” Luke 23:43

They live and reign with Him in Heaven, because they are partakers of the first resurrection (i.e., salvation in the resurrected Christ, who self-performed the world’s first resurrection).

“Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection! The second death [or eternal hell] has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:6

The thousand-year period is not literal, just like the thousand in the following verse is not literal either:

“For every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills.” Psalms 50:10

The word thousand in these instances means many or a great amount. The cattle on the thousand and first and second and third hills do not belong to someone else, they still belong to God.

With that same understanding, Christ is now reigning over the earth through the New Order or the New Covenant, and no one but God knows when that unlimited period will end.

2) Those who are NOT Christians are dead in spirit.

“The Spirit [of Christ] gives life because of righteousness.” Romans 8:10

The dead in spirit are placed in a holding pattern after their physical death, not in purgatory. They await Judgment Day which will come about following the thousand-year reign of Christ and the end of the world.

“They [Christians] came to life [in heaven] and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead [non-Christians] did not come to life until the thousand years were completed…The dead [non-Christians] were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books… Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life [Jesus’s Book of Life] was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:4,5,12,15

“I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem [the Assembly of all Christians], coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her Husband [Jesus].  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.’ ” Revelation 21:2-3

“Then we [Christians] who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:17

Does that mean every non-Christian will be thrown in the eternal fires of hell? We don’t think so, otherwise God would not have planned to waste His time judging the incredibly vast multitude that will appear before Him.

a. Jesus died to be the Savior of the whole world.

“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

“In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” John 1:4

b. Because Christ is the light of all mankind, every non-Christian will have a chance to stand before Him and give an account of his life.

“No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Thus, Christ will judge all non-Christians according to their deeds and the opportunities given them to live for Him, and will punish those whom He decides deserve punishment.

“For he says to Moses, ‘I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.’ So it is God who decides to show mercy.” Romans 9:15,16

Those non-Christians, whom Jesus will show mercy to, would have displayed in their earthly lives – just like true Christians – the fruit of the Spirit.

“He will render to every man according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.” Romans 2:6-8

“For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified.  (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.) This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.” Romans 2:13-16

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

c. True Christians who follow Christ’s commandments will escape Judgment of Condemnation. That’s the beauty of being a true Christian. Forgiveness is asked by the Christian, and then granted by God while the Christian is still alive, repentant, and living for Christ; hence there’s no sweating before the Throne of God on Judgment Day, only a welcome hug from the Creator Himself.

“Well done, good and faithful servant!” Matthew 25:23

Still, the many so-called Christians who don’t really live the Christian life will not escape Judgment of Condemnation.

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.” 2 Corinthians 5:10

If you’re a non-Christian or a “marginal” one, don’t bet your eternal destiny on what you think you can get away with on that fateful Judgment Day. Frankly speaking, the odds are stacked against you.

“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” John 3:36

New Heaven, New Earth, And New Bodies

Following Judgment Day, Christ will start everything over.

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.” Revelation 21:1

No longer any sea is symbolic for no longer any abyss, the pit wherefrom came the demons.

“The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea.” Revelation 13:1

Therefore, there will be no more demonic and destructive forces in the new earth to contend with.

“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5

However, even now, subsequent to Satan’s crushing defeat, a certain manifestation of the new Heaven and the new Earth, in preparation for their prophesied upcoming transformation, is already being exhibited: the Earth is now under new management, with Jesus reigning over it in Heaven through his new chosen people, true Christians, who daily do His heavenly will on earth.

“To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 5:11

“Great and marvelous are Your works, O Lord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Your ways, King of the nations!” Revelation 14:3

“But you are a chosen people…” 1 Peter 2:9

Bringing His dominion to bear, Christ is at work, preparing and PERFECTING a special group of people, His chosen, a multitude from every generation and every nation under heaven that will inherit the New PERFECT Earth He will bring forth, along with their New PERFECT Heavenly Bodies.

“I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands.” Revelation 7:9

“There are also bodies in the heavens and bodies on the earth. The glory of the heavenly bodies is different from the glory of the earthly bodies… It is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever.” 1 Corinthians 15: 40,42

After Jesus rose from the dead, He was wearing a new body. Not even His disciples could recognize Him, unless He opened their eyes.

“At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.” John 20:14

“Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.” Luke 24:31

Consequently, the earthly biological side Mary passed to Jesus was immediately gone upon His resurrection. But given that Jesus was crafted from the very beginning with the Divine seed when He was born, He kept His paternal and heavenly side which bore the mark of His crucifixion.

“As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord!” John 20:20

After His resurrection Jesus was and is now fully clothed with a heavenly body that is wholly and solely crafted by the Father Himself. It is a body that is independent of mankind’s current nature, and no longer endures the weaknesses of the flesh.

All faithful Christians, along with those who pass muster on Judgment Day, will receive said heavenly bodies when God shuts the old world down and begins anew.

HellCONCLUSION

The real reason people fear their death is because of the second death (or eternal death/hell). They quite presciently feel that it is there and waiting.

Predestination And Free Will

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

By Biblicism Institute

Many have the wrong idea about predestination and free will.

They think that God only chooses to spiritually save a few, while the rest are destined to hell. In other words, man does not have free will, and only God predestines who gets to follow Him.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

the-burial-of-christ-caravaggio

Burial of Christ by Caravaggio

1) Jesus died for the whole world.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

He then sent His Helper, the Holy Spirit, to help everyone become like Him and produce the fruit of the Spirit.

“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.” John 16:7

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5: 22-23

2) Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Accepting the way, the truth, and the life of Jesus to reach the Father is not to be construed as an exercise of mental assent or a robotically regurgitated prayer of salvation.

What it actually means is, the way of Jesus, the truth of Jesus, and the life of Jesus (i.e., everything Christ is and represents, or the fruit of the Spirit) need to be lived out by all, Christians or not, in order to reach the Father.

“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

“In Him (Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” John 1:4

Those who, out of their free will, reject said spiritual enlightenment in their everyday lives will not see the Father.

“If you love me, keep my commands.” John 14:15

Those commands, which can be summed up as “love one another,” are known by all, Christians or not. Hence, it’s not a matter of predestination, but of willingness to obey and produce the fruit of the Spirit.

3) True Christians are set apart to inspire and help those who are not living out the fruit of the Spirit.

“You are the salt of the earth.” Matthew 5:13

Therefore, God predestines them by calling them to be his workmanship on the earth.

“For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.” Romans 8:29,30

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

To foreknow means to know in advance or to know the future, and God knows the future. And because He knows it, He prepares accordingly (i.e., He predestines). In other words, He knows in advance which of us will decide to live for Him, and thereupon predestines or prearranges or preassigns His work for each one, which then becomes our task to accomplish.

It does not mean that He blatantly ignores those He does not predestine to be conformed to the image of His son. What it entails is, He foreknows those who will reject the practices of His son, and therefore does not predestine them to be conformed to Him.

Even with those who, for the moment, reject the way, the truth, and the life of Christ, there is no telling what God has in store for them – for His love, through Christ our Lord, is unfathomable.

“Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?” Romans 2:4

If God did not care about them who are in darkness, He would not have a) asked His Son for the sacrifice on the cross, b) sent the Holy Spirit, and c) prearranged for true Christians to be His workmanship on the earth, in order to impart to all how much easier it is to live out the fruit of the Spirit by accepting Christ and his gift of the Holy Spirit, which in turn establishes God’s peace in one’s soul.

“This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:3,4

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

4) Man chooses to do whatever he wants, that’s free will. Yet, that does not mean everything man plans will succeed. God is the final arbiter of what He wants to take place on earth.

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.” Proverbs 16:9

Many will say, ha-ha!

Now, wait a minute!

Just because God does not allow all of man’s schemes to flourish does not mean that he doesn’t have free will. It only means that God is also free to either stir in him new ideas or throw a monkey wrench into his plans. Man’s still free to keep his course, while God’s also free to keep throwing that pesty wrench as well as insisting on a better course of action.

By the same token, God in His great mercy is also free to stimulate and help those who are living a life void of Christian enlightenment, by whispering in their hearts and inducing them to live out the fruit of the Spirit of His son.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3

Still, man is free to either reject or yield to His mercy.

CONCLUSION

We all have free will. Period. The only time we don’t is when we use said free will to freely reject and exchange our volition for God’s will in our lives.

“Not My will, but Yours be done.” Luke 22:42

Then we become slaves to God and His ultimate plan, because we come to realize that His will is better than ours.

“You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.” Romans 6:18

Ironically, when we keep our free will we are nothing but slaves to sin, but the instant we give it up we become truly free.

“If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for my sake, you will find it.” Matthew 10:39

Then God, who foreknew that moment when we do give up our lives for His sake, predestined us to be His heirs.

“So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.” Galatians 4:7.

Is America Cursed Because Of Israel?

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

By Biblicism Institute

“… a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils.” – George Washington, Farewell Address

Star-US Flag

The Satanic Hexagram used in occult practices

Modern-day Zionist Israel is NOT the Israel of the Bible because it is comprised of converted Jews and not of Hebrews with whom God had the Old Covenant.

Its very existence causes ramifications that negatively affect not only the Middle East but the West as well, especially the United States.

MODERN-DAY ISRAEL

Israel was founded in 1948 on the stolen land of Palestine by Ashkenazi Zionists, who had lost their homeland Khazaria and were in search of a new land.

They flooded into Palestine before, during, and after World War 2. Once on the ground, they created many terrorist groups such as the Irgun, the Stern gang, and Haganah, then terrorized, killed, and displaced the Palestinian population.

“Jewish forces in 1947-48 broke local treaties of peace, engaged in tactics of terror, intimidation and massacre, and systematically exploited opportunities to seize more territory as well as cleanse occupied regions of as many non-Jews as possible,” wrote Ian Lustick, American political scientist and Middle East historian.

Subsequently, these non-Semitic, non-Hebraic, non-Israelite, Ashkenazi Zionist Jews, who are not the descendants of Abraham, renamed the land Israel in order to reinvent themselves as Hebrews and hoodwink gullible Christians in the West.

“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18

Pacino QuoteHowever, untold numbers of Palestinians were massacred, with a great many more dispossessed of their land. It was known as the Nakba.

“A Jewish state would not have come into being without the uprooting of Palestinians. Therefore it was necessary to uproot them. There was no choice but to expel that population. It was necessary to cleanse the hinterland,” unequivocally stated Benny Morris, Zionist historian and supporter of mass murder and theft.

The majority of the Palestinians who still inhabit the country are segregated, while millions more are currently refugees in neighboring Arab countries, waiting to go back to their stolen homes.

“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.” Exodus 20:17

Through deceit and bribery Israel’s devilish minions exercise a malevolent, pernicious, and insidious influence on the Church and on the US Government in order to keep Israel’s faulty foundation from crumbling. See How the Ashkenazi Jews conquered the West.

“That stranglehold has got to be broken or this country is going down the drain,” explained Evangelist Billy Graham to President Nixon.

BLESSING ISRAEL, CURSING AMERICA

Unfortunately, a lot of misinformed Christians have been led to believe by crafty Zionists that if they bless Israel God will bless them because of this biblical passage:

The Lord said to Abram…  I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Genesis 12:2-3

Insulting Jesus

Jewish hatred of Jesus

That verse is clearly directed at Abram himself to whom God was talking and not at anyone else – not to mention that converted Jews of today are not remotely bloodline descendants of Abraham. In addition, the nation God was describing was the nation that would spring forth from Christ, Abraham’s seed. A Christian nation that would include all the families of the earth. A Nation that would span the globe.

“And in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed…” Genesis 26: 4

That nation could hardly be the racist state of Israel which can’t even coexist with its Palestinian neighbors, let alone all the families of the earth. Talk about Chutzpah!

Silverman and killing Jesus

Jewish hatred of Jesus

Compromised Zionist “Christian” teachers and preachers, such as John Hagee, love to pervert the meaning of the Bible in order to make a false point and brainwash the flock with their demonic bile.

They and their followers “encourage” the US Government to “bless” the Jewish State of Israel to the tunes of billions of dollars a year out of America’s coffers for Israel to wage war and oppress another people, while millions of Americans go hungry, jobless, and homeless.

Worse, they themselves organize fund raisers for Zionist “settlers” and Israeli Defense Forces murderers and oppressors. In so doing, they’re actually helping these land thieves steal another people’s land, while empowering them to kill the original inhabitants in the process.

They also lobby the US government to provide the Apartheid criminal state of Israel with diplomatic cover in the international community, even when Israel is indiscriminately bombing innocent men, women, and children.

Graphic2 Graphic
Strange! Where's the pro-life crowd?

Anyway, just for the heck of it, we figured we’d try to count the blessings that were supposed to come America’s way for having “blessed” Israel all these years with billions of American dollars. Here’s what we found.

Oh, the irony!

There are no blessings, just curses: jobs shipped overseas, dollar devaluation or inflation, hate across the globe, privacy destroyed, police state, wars, debt, deficit, economic depression, joblessness, homelessness, burdensome taxes and tariffs, crumbling infrastructures, rampant divorce, abortion, sexual perversion, out-of-control debt (personal, business, and governmental), pervasive sicknesses, suicide epidemic, dumbed down population, drug addiction, financial system controlled by thieves, corrupt politicians… Should we go on?

“For of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.” 2 Peter 2:19

Basically, America is now infected with all the symptoms of an Empire near collapse.

God will not be mocked, especially when you undermine His Son’s New Covenant by “reconstructing” the First Covenant on stolen Palestinian land, now called Israel.

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7

Look at what happened to Great Britain after they deeded the land of Palestine to the Zionists with the Balfour Declaration of 1917. England was totally destroyed in World War 2, lost its Empire, and became America’s poodle.

BIBLICAL ISRAEL NO LONGER EXISTS

What these Zionist Jews and the so-called “Christians” who support them conveniently forget is that the First (Old) Covenant was deemed obsolete by the Apostle Paul.

“By calling this covenant new, he has made the first one obsolete and what is obsolete is outdated.” Hebrews 8:13

So what did they think would happen when they helped rebuild and daily support something God was done with and wanted gone?

“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

In A.D. 70 God sent the Roman army to destroy the Hebrew Nation, Jerusalem, and the Temple.

Roman Catapulta

Roman Catapulta used during Siege of 70 AD

That famed destruction is known as the Apocalypse, the Armageddon, the Great Tribulation, the Desolation, and the End of the Age of the Old Covenant and of Satan’s dominion upon the earth, as prophesied by Christ Himself in the Gospels and by the Apostle John throughout the entire book of Revelation. It was recorded by historian Flavius Josephus in The Wars of the Judahites.

Said genocide wiped out the entire Hebrew race, except for those who accepted Christ and fled beforehand.

“Jesus turned and said to them, ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.'” Luke 23:28

“But he responded, ‘Do you see all these buildings? I tell you the truth, they will be completely demolished. Not one stone will be left on top of another!'” Matthew 24: 2

“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

“Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.” Matthew 24:34

“They will be killed by the sword when all of them are made captives by the Gentiles. And Jerusalem will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the period of the Gentiles is fulfilled.” Luke 21:24

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20

“And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.” Revelation 11:8

The Destruction of Jerusalem AD 70

The Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD

That is why the Hebrew Tribes are no longer around. And they can’t and won’t be “found” either, because they’re not lost, they’re all dead.

“Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets.” Micah 3:12

“And I will silence in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, for the land shall become a waste.” Jeremiah 7:34

“From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up…” Daniel 12:11

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

Consequently, the Christian Hebrews, who escaped those infernal LAST DAYS of the Old Covenant, did not have the mark of the beast and embodied “all Israel shall be saved”‘ of Romans 11:26. Their symbolic number in Revelation is 144,000 (12 tribes squared/Father & Son x 1000/many or 12² x 1000). Those with the mark of the beast were annihilated.

In other words, there are NO LOST TRIBES of Israel roaming about. They’re all DEAD. Besides, if they’re lost why don’t they pick up a cell phone and call someone. After all, this is the 21st century. 🙂

Stones - Western Wall

Stones thrown by Roman Soldiers with the Catapulta

That undoing took place because God wanted to indefinitely shut down the First (Old) Covenant and allow free rein to the New. God does not have both the Old and the New Covenants being enforced at the same time. He only has one. The New.

Contrary to what many would have you believe, God is not married to His bride, the Church Assembly, on the one hand, while having an affair with His mistress, the modern state of Israel, on the other.

Modern-day Israel is comprised of converted Jews and not of Hebrews – with whom God had the Old Covenant – and therefore it is a state that has nothing to do with God’s word in the Bible.

JEWS ARE NOT THE HEBREWS OF THE BIBLE

“It is certain that there is no ethnic or racial continuum between the Biblical Israelites and the (Ashkenazic) Khazarians who lead the Jewish state,” wrote Jewish writer and musician Gilad Atzmon.

Today, those who are known as Jews are in fact the non-Semitic and non-Israelite Ashkenazim, Sephardim, and Samaritans, who in later times joined small numbers of other races that converted to Judaism/Pharisaism: Polish, Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, etc. These latter ones form a minority known as European Jews who, when coupled with the Ashkenazim, constitute a majority against the darker-skinned Samaritan, Sephardic, and African Jews.

All the above groups are converts to Judaism, and none can claim to trace their ancestry to Abraham, Jacob, or Judah. In other words, they’re not the chosen Hebrews of the Bible, and therefore cannot claim Palestine as their Abrahamic inheritance. And resurrecting the dead Hebrew tongue after centuries in the dustbin of oblivion, in order to make it modern Israel’s official language, won’t change those facts, much like parking a Subaru in a Lamborghini dealership won’t turn it into a Veneno Roadster.

Besides, when was the last time you heard of a prophet whom God sent to anoint a King over modern Israel, as He used to do in the old days? What of the animal sacrifices? What of the lamb to be killed and eaten during Passover, like Jesus did when He established the new covenant with his disciples, a lamb that was killed and eaten in a private home? The sacrifice of the Passover Lamb in the Hebrew home was God’s very covenant with each individual ancient Hebrew, and that’s why Jesus repeated it with his disciples in order to introduce the new covenant.

Do Jews today kill a lamb for Passover in their own homes to keep the old covenant alive? Is modern Israel comprised of only Judea and Samaria, as it was in the Old Testament and divided into seven lots as God directed Joshua, with each tribe settling on its own parcel? Are the bloodline descendants of the Levites still around to restock a future Temple, because no other Hebrew tribe can?

The answer to all of these questions is resoundingly negative. And ironically, Judea and Samaria of the Bible (i.e., the Kingdoms of Judah and Israel) are today mostly inside the West Bank of Palestine (aptly named Judea and Samaria even by thieving Zionists – map of West Bank on your right) and not inside Modern Israel. See Jews and History: Lies Galore.

Palestine New Testament Times West Bank

CONCLUSION

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.

Indeed, it has become the nerve center of the War on Christianity, and has set itself against God and Jesus whom He sent. Therefore it is a burden and a curse on America, and on those in the Church who worship it.

Those who aid and abet it are none too pleasing to God.

“If you will not obey the voice of the Lord your God… then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you. Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the field. Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Cursed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Cursed shall you be when you come in, cursed shall you be when you come out…” Deuteronomy 28: 15-16

The Greatest Injustice Of The 20th Century

Is Still Ongoing
C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

It was the greatest theft, coupled with the most elaborate deception and highly-wrought intrigue, ever orchestrated in the history of mankind.

The ripple effects of its Machiavellian nature are still being felt to this day.

Palestine - 120 Years Ago - 2 Palestine - 120 Years Ago - 3
Palestine 1890-1900

ISRAEL: STOLEN LAND OF PALESTINE

In the 1900s, Ashkenazi and European Zionist Jews, under the same pretext as that used by the so called Zionist “Christian” Crusaders of the Middle Ages, flooded into Palestine, armed with terror and violence, and backed by the imperial might of Britain.

Many political analysts and historians of that time saw the Jewish invasion of Palestine as a British imperial project, this time using Zionist Jews as cannon fodder, much like Zionist “Christians” were used when the Crusaders’ goal was to plunder the area and control the Mediterranean for European powers.

Now the British empire wanted a beachhead to maintain the Middle East divided and in constant turmoil, so as to conquer and control the Arabs who control the oil, while keeping their own hands on the wells’ spigots.

It was a mutually beneficial arrangement.

The Empire got an outpost, and the Ashkenazim – who lost their country, Khazaria, and were searching for a new land – were handed Palestine, which in 1948 they renamed Israel in order to reinvent themselves as Hebrews and hoodwink gullible Christians in the West.

However, countless Palestinians were massacred, with a great many dispossessed of their land. The majority of those who still inhabit the country are segregated, while millions more are currently refugees in neighboring Arab countries, waiting to go back to their stolen homes.

“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.” Exodus 20:17

MODERN-DAY ISRAEL IS NOT THE ISRAEL OF THE BIBLE

“It is certain that there is no ethnic or racial continuum between the Biblical Israelites and the (Ashkenazic) Khazarians who lead the Jewish state.” – Gilad Atzmon, Jewish writer and musician.

Those who today are known as Jews – the converted Ashkenazim, SephardimSamaritans, Europeans, Africans, etc. – are not of the seed of Jacob/Israel, and evidently not of the Semitic lineage of the 12 Hebrew tribes with whom God had the Old Covenant.

Deception: Yids who faked their Hebrew names

Hence, they are not the Chosen People – especially when all Hebrews are irrevocably dead. They are just converts to Judaism/Pharisaism, and consequently neither the descendants of Abraham nor the inheritors of Old Testament promises.

“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18

Zionist Jews, who claim that Palestine belongs to them, are simply barefaced impostors and liars pretending to be Hebrews in order to steal Arab lands. They can’t possibly contend that Palestine, which they have stolen under biblical pretense, is their Abrahamic inheritance.

“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

In a just court of law their self-ascribed right to hold on to the land would be thrown out, even after 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.

To further mask their larceny, the Jews repudiated their Yiddish dialect and resurrected the dead Hebrew tongue after centuries in the dustbin of oblivion in order to make it modern Israel’s official language. Such barefaced deception did not, cannot, and will not change their non-Hebraic origin, much like parking a Subaru in a Lamborghini dealership won’t turn it into a Veneno Roadster.

In addition, most Jews follow the man-inspired Talmud, full of Babylonian superstitions, and not the God-inspired Old Testament where God’s promises and commandments are recorded. Even thus, many of them believe that Jews should not be occupying Palestine and recognize only the current Palestinian government.

True Torah Jews vs Israel

If one is dead set on applying ancestry and racial stock as to who should inherit the land of Palestine, then the Arabs clearly win – the Palestinian Arabs to be more precise. For Arabs,  including cultural Arabs such as Chaldeans, Assyrians, Aramaics, Phoenicians, and Syriacs, are the only living bloodline descendants of Abraham and the only true Semites, not converted Jews. And the Palestinian Arabs have inhabited the land for close to 2000 years.

Ironically, Judea and Samaria of the Bible (i.e., the Kingdoms of Judah and Israel) are today mostly inside the West Bank of Palestine (aptly named Judea and Samaria even by thieving, murdering Zionists) and not inside Modern Israel.

ISRAEL’S WAR CRIMES

Israel stops at nothing to hold on to a land they have no business holding on to. They bomb and kill and maim, while their shills in the western media lie, distort the truth, and at times invent wholesale “facts on the ground.”

   Apartheid Wall 2Israel burns baby

Israels War CrimesZionist Jews are nothing but shameless thieves, murderers, impostors, racist oppressors, and liars. But the greatest shame is that many so-called “Christians,” along with the great western powers, constantly side with them.

“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.” Proverbs 17: 15

To make matters worse, America itself has become the de facto patron of that genocidal Apartheid state to the tunes of billions of dollars a year. Money that is plundered out of America’s coffers in order for Israel to oppress another people, while millions of Americans go hungry, jobless, and homeless.

ISRAEL: SCOURGE OF THE WORLD

“We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever.” – Maurice Samuel

In stealing Palestine, the Zionists didn’t just hurt the Palestinian people, they scarred the world as well, are scarring it now, and will probably continue to do so until the world puts an end to it.

World War 1: Britain was losing the war against Germany. The Zionists stepped in and manipulated President Wilson to get the US into the war to help them. In return, the Jews asked the British Empire to deed them Palestine to create Israel. Their wish was granted in the form of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which cost the world 18 million dead.

During that same period, the Jewish Bolsheviks, who took over the Russian government in the 1910s, killed 66 million Christians, including 200,000 members of the Christian clergy, and destroyed 40,000 churches.

World War 2: The Zionists fomented that war (just like they’re doing today with Iran and other countries in the Middle East), so that European Jews could feel threatened. The deception worked as European Jews fled in droves to Palestine and took over the homes of Palestinians, who were evicted at gunpoint and then either massacred or driven out of their land into neighboring Arab countries. With enough Jews on the ground, Israel was created in 1948 at a cost of 80 million dead.

World War On Terror: Jewish neocons, in cahoots with their bought-and-paid-for politicians in the US government, perpetrated their act of terrorism on 9/11. Then they conveniently blamed it on Muslims so as to obtain a green light to destroy the Middle East using the armies of the US and NATO and the terrorist groups they finance, with the ultimate view to creating Greater Israel. So far, the death toll is 27 million, including Christians.

World War 3: With Russia protecting Syria and Iran from Israel’s Machiavellian design, will the Zionists succeed in bringing the world once again to the brink of disaster to create Greater Israel? If they do, will it instead bring about their downfall?

As befitting the deceivers and murderers that they are, the Zionist VICTIMIZERS of the world shamelessly camouflage themselves as VICTIMS, with Israel, their monstrous spawn, carrying on their blood-filled legacy. Indeed, apartheid Israel is a scourge, a cancer that needs to be dealt with.

CONCLUSION

We’ll let God Himself pen it:

“For I the LORD love justice, I hate robbery …” Isaiah 61:8

“Your tongue plots destruction, like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.” Psalm 52:2

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression.” Isaiah 1:17

Appeal: Every conscientious individual should implement a personal boycott of Israel and everything made there.

Is The Pope Peter’s Successor?

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

By Biblicism Institute

No, the Pope is NOT the Apostle Peter’s successor.

Peter by Bartolome E. Murillo

1. There are no more Apostles, and therefore no Pope can be Peter’s successor. Only the original 12 Apostles make up the foundation of Christ’s assembly of believers.

“And the wall of the city had twelve foundation stones, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.” Revelation 21:14

The Apostles could do signs and wonders. The Pope can’t.

“And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he gave them power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.” Matthew 10:1

For an in-depth look at what the Apostles could do and no one today can, please see Understanding the Duties of Ministry.

2. Peter was a poor fisherman who gave it all up to follow Jesus. Unlike the Pope he remained poor throughout his life and ministry.

However, not only does the Pope live a life of luxury, but when he travels he requires an additional boatload of money: private airplane, security guards, red carpets, hobnobbing with powerful politicians, etc.

Upside Down Crucifixion of Peter by Caravaggio

Contrast this with Peter who, with no security guards and no powerful politicians to rescue him, got crucified upside down for the Lord.

Unfortunately, this kind of high life is not exclusive to the Pope and others in the catholic church. It’s quite rampant on the protestant side as well. See Of Leaders and Servants in the Church.

3. There are no verses in the bible that bestow said title on anyone after Peter’s death, especially as Peter was not above or more important than the other Apostles.

The reason many erroneously believe that Peter was more special is because of this biblical passage:

“A third time he asked him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, ‘Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Then feed my sheep.'” John 21:17

a) Jesus asked Peter three times because Peter betrayed him three times, and that’s why Peter was hurt when Jesus insisted the third time. Peter got the hint.

” ‘Truly I tell you,’ Jesus answered, ‘this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.’ ” Matthew 26:34

b) When Jesus asked Peter to “Feed my sheep,” the sheep He was talking about was his Hebraic fellowmen.

“First to the Judahite, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16

And just like Jesus sent Paul to the Gentiles, or the non-Hebrews, to spiritually feed them…

“Then the Lord said to me, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.'” Acts 22:21

…He sent Peter primarily to the Hebrews.

c) In Jesus’s mind one group (Judahite Hebrews) was not above the other (Gentiles), as the Apostle Paul would later confirm.

“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

It’s just that Jesus wanted to make sure the Hebrews were reached so He could shut down the Old Covenant, as He had prophesied.

“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

In essence, from the time of Christ’s crucifixion in 30 AD to 70 AD, God gave the disobedient Hebrews 40 years to repent and accept Jesus as the Messiah.

“The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

But, in 70 AD, after waiting 40 years, God dropped the hammer on all those who did not repent. He dispatched the Roman Army to Jerusalem to wipe out all the Hebrews who had come up from all the country and the world to the feast of unleavened bread.

Just like during Ancient Israel’s 40-year wilderness wandering, God was not about to lead the unbelieving Hebrews into the promised land of the New Covenant. They all had to die so He could start anew. Discover the Sequence of Events here.

“Your sons shall be shepherds for forty years in the wilderness, and they will suffer for your unfaithfulness, until your corpses lie in the wilderness.” Exodus 14:33

The Denial of St Peter by Adam de Coster

4. That misunderstanding about the Pope being Peter’s successor really took wings with a Bad Translation from the Greek in Matthew 16:18.

Popular Translation:

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” KJV

Biblicism Institute Correction (in bold color):

“And I say also unto you, you are a piece of rock, but upon this mass of rock I will build my assembly; and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.”

In the popular translation, the Greek word that is translated as Peter is petros and it means a piece of rock. Besides, Jesus never called Simon Peter, He always called him Simon Bar-Jona (or Simon son of John).

“And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona…” Matthew 16:17

After this incident, Simon Bar-Jona either got stuck with the nickname Petros or Peter, or adopted it as his “Christian” name a la Saul-became-Paul. And even though verse 16 (amongst many others) says, “And Simon Peter said,” one must keep in mind that Matthew was narrating this after the fact.

Further, the Greek word that is translated as rock is petra. It means a mass of rock.

Jesus would have never thought of building His church or assembly solely on a sinful man like Peter. It would have been faulty construction.

The foundational cornerstone of the assembly is Jesus Himself, the great rock:

“Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” Ephesians 2:20

“Anyone who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.” Matthew 21:44

“The LORD is my rock…” Psalm 18:2

However, Peter and the other Apostles also make up the foundation of the assembly.

“(you are) built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” Ephesians 2:20

That’s why Jesus called Simon Bar-Jona a piece of that mass of rock, with the other Apostles being the remainder pieces.

When Jesus mentioned the mass of rock he was pointing toward a certain direction by using the word tautes  (translated as this in this rock). It actually means this hereof. It is a directional word with a particular slant. And that slant was not just toward Peter since Jesus used two different expressions for rock. It was directed at Jesus Himself and at the Apostles, as the word mass means aggregate or conglomeration or whole. Again, Peter was only a piece of this mass of rock or this mass quantity of rock.

Last, the Greek word that is translated as and is kai. It has a slew of meanings: and, but, also, then, even, etc. Therefore, context is key. Jesus was telling Simon (Peter) that he was not the only one he was relying on, and that He Himself and the other Apostles were part of the mass of rock upon which the foundation of the assembly would be laid. That’s why but is the appropriate translation.

By using and instead of but the translators of the popular version made a connection between the two types of rock as if they were both one and the same.

That fallacy led to the Papal system inside the Catholic church, or at the very least is being used to explain it, especially as Catholic scholars strangely and erroneously consider the Pope to be Peter’s successor – a bizarre understanding with no biblical verses to prove it.

In fact, immediately following verse 18 Jesus promised all of the Disciples/Apostles (or the mass of rock) that He would give them authority and power.

Palestine Before The Zionists Stole It

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

By Biblicism Institute

Palestinian Passport“Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Modern Jews – the Ashkenazim, SephardimSamaritans, Europeans, Africans, etc. – are not of the seed of Jacob/Israel, thus not of the Semitic lineage of the 12 Hebrew tribes with whom God had the Old Covenant. They are just converts to Judaism/Pharisaism, and therefore neither the Chosen People nor the descendants of Abraham – especially since all Hebrews are irrevocably dead.

“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18

In other words, Zionist Jews, who claim that Palestine belongs to them, are simply barefaced impostors and liars pretending to be Hebrews in order to steal the land. They can’t possibly contend that Palestine, which they have stolen under biblical pretense, is their Abrahamic inheritance.

“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

Consequently, Palestine does not belong to converted Jews. Not one inch of it.

STEALING PALESTINE AND BREAKING GOD’S COMMANDS

Palestine was not a land without a people for a people without a land, and it was not a state of sand, malaria, and flies as the Zionist Jews would have us believe. It was a fully functioning country with a sizable Arab population.

But all of that changed when non-Semitic, non-Hebraic, Zionist Ashkenazi Jews – who lost their homeland Khazaria and were in search of a new land – flooded into Palestine before, during, and after World War 2.

Once on the ground, they created many terrorist groups such as the Irgun, the Stern gang, and Haganah. They terrorized the Palestinian population, killed thousands upon thousands, and forced hundreds of thousands out of their homes and into neighboring Arab countries.

“We will expel the Arabs and take their place. In each attack a decisive blow should be struck resulting in the destruction of homes and the expulsion of the population,” explained fake-Hebrew Ashkenazi David Ben-Gurion, a Prime Minister Thief of Israel (1949-54, 1955-63), in a letter to his son (1937).

Evicted Palestinian Refugees 1948

As a result, the Ashkenazim stole Palestine in 1948 and renamed it Israel in order to reinvent themselves as Hebrews and hoodwink gullible Christians in the West. See How the Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West.

However, countless Palestinians were massacred, with a great many dispossessed of their land. The majority of those who still inhabit the country are segregated, while millions more are currently refugees in neighboring Arab countries, waiting to go back to their stolen homes.

By setting in motion such a course of action, the Zionist Jews, pretending to be the Hebrews of the Old Covenant, hypocritically broke half of said Covenant’s commandments.

“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.” Exodus 20: 7

“You shall not murder.” Exodus 20:13

“You shall not steal.” Exodus 20:15

“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.” Exodus 20:16

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is your neighbor’s.” Exodus 20:17

Zionist Jews are not settlers, they’re thieves, liars, impostors, and murderers. Palestine was stolen, pure and simple.

Since then there has not been peace in the Middle East, and there never will be as long as Israel continues to exist in its current configuration and gets away with manipulating the US Government.

And ironically, Judea and Samaria of the Bible (i.e., the Kingdoms of Judah and Israel) are today mostly inside the West Bank of Palestine (rightly called Judea and Samaria even by thieving Zionists – West Bank map on your right) and not inside Modern Israel.

HOW STEALING PALESTINE AFFECTS THE WORLD

“We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever.” – Maurice Samuel

Palestinians evicted out of their homes 1948

In stealing Palestine, the Zionists didn’t just hurt the Palestinian people, they scarred the world as well, are scarring it now, and will probably continue to do so until the world puts an end to it.

World War 1: Britain was losing the war against Germany. The Zionists stepped in and manipulated President Wilson to get the US into the war to help them. In return, the Jews asked the British Empire to deed them Palestine to create Israel. Their wish was granted in the form of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which cost the world 18 million dead.

During that same period, the Jewish Bolsheviks, who took over the Russian government in the 1910s, killed 66 million Christians, including 200,000 members of the Christian clergy, and destroyed 40,000 churches.

World War 2: The Zionists fomented that war (just like they’re doing today with Iran and other countries in the Middle East), so that European Jews could feel threatened. The deception worked as European Jews fled in droves to Palestine and took over the homes of Palestinians, who were evicted at gunpoint and then either massacred or driven out of their land into neighboring Arab countries. With enough Jews on the ground, Israel was created in 1948 at a cost of 80 million dead.

World War On Terror: Jewish neocons, in cahoots with their bought-and-paid-for politicians in the US government, perpetrated their act of terrorism on 9/11. Then they conveniently blamed it on Muslims so as to obtain a green light to destroy the Middle East using the armies of the US and NATO and the terrorist groups they finance, with the ultimate view to creating Greater Israel. So far, the death toll is 27 million, including Christians.

World War 3: With Russia protecting Syria and Iran from Israel’s Machiavellian design, will the Zionists succeed in bringing the world once again to the brink of disaster to create Greater Israel? If they do, will it instead bring about their downfall?

Apartheid Israel is indeed a scourge. A cancer that needs to be dealt with.

“You will destroy them that speak lies: Jehovah abhors blood-thirsty and deceitful men.”  Psalm 5:6

CONCLUSION

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.

However, when one wakes up from the media’s induced stupor, one realizes that Zionist Jews are themselves the victimizers of not only the Arab Palestinians but of the world as well. As befitting the deceivers that they are, they camouflage themselves as victims.

Unfortunately for them, the world’s consciousness is being stirred, and everyone will soon realize who they really are: impostors, liars, shameless thieves, and blood-thirsty barbarians.

Nevertheless, the greatest SHAME is the fact that many “Christians” (including the leaders of the “Christian” media who sold out Jesus and His Love-Thy-Neighbor command to Israel for 30 pieces of Jewish silver) and the great western powers justify Israel at every turn.

“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.” Proverbs 17: 15

Appeal: Every conscientious individual should implement a personal boycott of Israel and everything made there.

Israel’s Obsession With Hummus Is About More Than Stealing Palestine’s Food

By Ben White, The National

When Israel expelled hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their villages and homes in 1948, many left with little more than the clothes on their back. Food was left on the stove. Crops were left unharvested. But the land emptied of its inhabitants was soon occupied by new residents.

From 1948 to 1953, almost all new Jewish settlements were established on refugees’ property. The myth of making the desert bloom is belied by the facts: in mid-1949, two-thirds of all land sowed with grain in Israel was Palestinian land. In 1951, “abandoned” land accounted for nearly 95 per cent of all Israel’s olive groves and almost 10,000 acres of vineyards.

During these early years, many Palestinian refugees attempted to return to their lands. By 1956, as many as 5,000 so-called “infiltrators” had been killed by Israeli armed forces, the vast majority of them looking to return home, recover possessions, or search for loved ones. Palestinian women and children who crossed the frontier to gather crops were murdered.

The Nakba in 1948 was the settler colonial conquest of land and the displacement of its owners, a dual act of erasure and appropriation. Citing “reasons of state”, Israel’s first premier David Ben-Gurion appointed a Negev Names Committee to remove Arabic names from the map. By 1951, the Jewish National Fund’s “Naming Committee” had “assigned 200 new names”.

But it did not stop with dynamite and new maps. The Zionist colonisation of Palestine has also included culture, notably cuisine. This is the context for the so-called “hummus wars”: it is not about petty claims and counterclaims, rather, the story is one of colonial, cultural appropriation and resistance to those attempts.

In the decades since the establishment of the State of Israel on the ruins and ethnically cleansed lands of Palestine, various elements of the indigenous cuisine have been targeted for appropriation: falafel, knafeh, sahlab and, of course, hummus.

Hummus

Arabic Hummus

Though these dishes are common to a number of communities across the Mediterranean and Middle East, Israel claims them as its own: falafel is the “national snack”, while hummus, according to Israeli food writer Janna Gur, is “a religion”.

In a 2002 article on recipes, the Israeli embassy in Washington acknowledged that “Israel lacks a long-standing culinary heritage”, adding that “only a few years ago, Israelis even doubted the existence of their own authentic cuisine”.

Such an admission is hard to find these days, as appropriation has become propaganda.

Now we have “International Hummus Day”, launched by an Israeli, Ben Lang, who is explicit about the propaganda value of his project: “The idea was to connect people around hummus and get more people talking about it and hopefully get people to see the good things that are happening in Israel.”

“I just wanted to make sure that people saw that the initiative started in Israel.”

As everything from food to the keffiyeh is used to “rebrand” the state that colonised Palestine in the first place, Palestinians and their supporters have fought back.

When an Israeli choreographer included the dabke traditional dance in his company’s repertoire in 2013, a New York-based dabke troupe responded with a thoughtful critique that noted how, by “appropriating dabke, and labelling it Israeli”, the “power imbalance” is only furthered.

They added: “This makes us feel taken advantage of. Exploited. Commodified.”

In December 2014, after a campaign by Palestinian students and their allies, the student assembly at Wesleyan University in Connecticut agreed to remove Sabra hummus from campus dining facilities. The product symbolises Israeli appropriation and ongoing brutality; its parent company, the Strauss Group, donates to the Israeli military.

Accusations of cultural appropriation can produce some misleading responses. It’s not about who is “allowed” to eat what, or even about an objection to the natural cross-pollination that occurs in culture through language, cuisine and more.

That is not the point. It is about the claim of ownership in a context of historic and ongoing violent erasure and displacement.

It is about efforts to create an artificial history that justifies the establishment and continued existence of a settler colonial state.

Even a mainstream Israeli food writer like Gil Hovav has pointed to this reality. “Food is about memory and identity,” he told the Israeli media last year. “Claiming ownership over a food is a way to assert a nation’s narrative. Israeli Jews have made hummus their own.”

Cuisine is where efforts to both deny the existence of Palestine and appropriate its land and heritage meet. It is both an act of theft itself, and a way of justifying that theft.

Are Jews The Israelites Of The Bible?

The Awkward Moment When Jews Realize They’re The Goyim

[This is the in-depth version. For the shorter version, click here.]

Abraham, Hagar,and Ishmael

Abraham sends Hagar & Ishmael away

The number one biblical verse used by Zionist Jews and Zionist Christians alike to justify dispossessing the Palestinians of their land is this one:

“On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, ‘To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates….'” Genesis 15:18

By descendants God definitely meant the same biological bloodline, the same DNA, actual grandchildren of Abram/Abraham. Not spiritual progeny. As even a cursory study would show, those today who are known as Jews are not remotely bloodline descendants of Abraham. Continue reading
