The 11 Commandments

They’re No Longer 10
C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

MosesGod started His legal system when He gave Moses the 10 commandments.

From Exodus 20 – with our commentary:

Commandment 1:

“You shall have no other gods before me.”

This commandment comes into sharper focus when we understand that Jesus is God who became flesh and dwelt amongst us.

“I and the Father are one.” John 10:30

See The Trinity Doctrine is NOT in the Bible.

Commandment 2:

“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.”

Many Christians take this commandment as if God forbade the sculpture or painting of His likeness. That’s not the intent of the 2nd commandment at all. What God was saying was that we must not take the sculptures or paintings of things in heaven, like the sun many once revered, or the earth beneath, like the calf the ancient Hebrews worshiped in the wilderness, or in the waters below, like Dagon the fish-god the Amorites adored, and bow down to them.

By the same token, we must not take the painting or sculpture of the likeness of Jesus and bow down to it either, as if that sculpture or painting were Jesus Himself.

Still, God did not forbid the depictions of Himself or angels or things on earth or in the waters as art. God Himself asked for sculptures of cherubim to be placed not only on the ark of the covenant, but on the walls of the Temple (Old Testament) as well.

“You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark you shall put the testimony which I will give to you. There I will meet with you; and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak to you about all that I will give you in commandment for the sons of Israel.” Exodus 25: 21-22

“On the walls all around the temple, in both the inner and outer rooms, he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers.” 2 Chronicles 3:11

God is everything: a scientist, an engineer, a musician, an artist, etc.  He has freely distributed these gifts of His to all under heaven with the express purpose that we use them.

“In the hearts of all who are skillful I have put skill.” Exodus 31: 6

Commandment 3:

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

The way people take God’s name in vain or misuse it is by:

1) attributing to Him things He neither said nor commanded – like the erroneous tenets of church tithing and church services, and the mistaken belief that modern-day Israel is the fulfillment of God’s prophetic word in the bible;

“For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:37

2) swearing by God when mere mortals are generally skittish and fickle, not to mention sinful and definitely not omniscient or omnipotent; that’s why Jesus reiterated the 3rd commandment in the following manner:

“But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Nor shall you make an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes ‘ or ‘No, no’; anything beyond these is of evil.” Matthew 5: 34-37

See Pray for the Peace of which Jerusalem?

Commandment 4:

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”

The Sabbath is for man and not man for the Sabbath. In other words, God gave the Sabbath to man as a gift so he can rest. Jesus Himself had to put this in perspective.

“And Jesus said to them, ‘Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions became hungry; how he entered the house of God in the time of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the consecrated bread, which is not lawful for anyone to eat except the priests, and he also gave it to those who were with him?’ Jesus said to them, ‘The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.’ ” Mark 2: 25-27

The Sabbath might be a day of rest, but if there’s a need that we must take care of, the Sabbath is not to be worshiped to the point of ignoring that need.

However, employers are not gods and therefore must respect the fact that their employees have the God-given right to their day of rest, whenever that day may be following the six days of work.

In general – as a society, not necessarily as a biblical rule – we have come to establish that our 6 days of work are broken down thus: 5 days dedicated to satisfy the demands of our employers or our own businesses and 1 day to satiate the obligations of our households, or if in financial strait or seasonally busy that 6th day is instead geared towards our employers or our businesses.

Commandment 5:

12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.”

Commandments 1 to 3 focus on God. Commandment 4 focuses on the individual.  Commandment 5 focuses on fathers and mothers. Commandments 6 to 10 focus on others. That’s the order God chose. As can be clearly seen, government and religious “leaders” did not even make it.

In addition, God singled out the 5th Commandment by attaching a promise to it, thus emphasizing its importance.

“‘Honor your father and mother’ (this is the first commandment with a promise).” Ephesians 6:2

“Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged and that it may go well with you.” Deuteronomy 5:16

Commandment 6:

13 “You shall not murder.”

This is another commandment that is pretty straightforward, one that Jesus reiterated with a warning to all – Christians or not:

” ‘You shall not murder’ and ‘Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.’ ” Matthew 5:21

Murder is usually the result of a hatred so powerful it can’t be controlled.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?” Matthew 5: 43-46

See All Wars are evil. Period.

Commandment 7:

14 “You shall not commit adultery.”

Preachers” have messed up the meaning of adultery, and the catastrophic result has been that many Christians are now living in adulterous relationships.

See Of Fornication, Divorce, and Adultery.

Commandment 8:

15 “You shall not steal.”

And yet so many “Christians” are helping modern-day Israel steal land that does not belong to them, especially since Jews are not even the Israelites of the Bible.

“Do not trust in oppression and do not vainly hope in robbery…” Psalm 62:10

See How the Ashkenazi Jews conquered the West.

Commandment 9:

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

False testimony is not only forbidden in a court of law, but in gossips and rumors as well.

“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” Ephesians 4:29

See The Heart Adjustment.

Commandment 10:

17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

If you catch yourself noticing that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, beware.

“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4: 11-13

See Has God Planned BIG Things for our Lives?

ADDITIONALLY

The above 10 commandments were given to Moses by God, but when God became flesh and dwelt amongst us He added another one.

Commandment 11:

Jesus and the poor“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34

If we live our lives truly loving one another – Commandment 11 – we actually end up fulfilling commandments 4 to 10. Furthermore, by loving one another we actually love God Himself because in following His command to love one another we show that we love Him, the one true God, and thus fulfill Commandments 1 to 3. Consequently, we fulfill all 11 commandments when we genuinely love one another. That’s why Jesus summarized the laws thus:

“Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22: 34-40

The Apostle Paul understood how these two commandments fuse together as one and put it this way:

“For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” Galatians 5:14

The Apostle John summarized it thus:

“Whoever claims to love God yet hates his brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.” 1 John 4:20

It is so much more difficult to love our siblings and those within our family. It’s been thus from the very beginning since Cain killed his brother Abel. We expect them to conform to our disposition when God actually expects us to conform to theirs by making allowance for their faults.

“Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Up to seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.’ ” Matthew 18: 21,22

“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” Colossians 3:13

No genuine need in our family is to be rejected.

“If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?” 1 John 3:17

Let us make sure our hearts are conditioned to accept and not reject those who are in need.

“Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” Matthew 5: 42

Beware lest we camouflage our hardheartedness with excuses and unforgivingness. God will not be mocked.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” Galatians 6: 7

Love is not a goosebumpsy feeling or emotion. To love is to actually do the things we’ve been commanded to do, no matter how hard they may be.

See Who Should Christians Give their Money to?

CONCLUSION

All enduring biblical laws are now sub-laws to the 11th Commandment.

They delineate and detail its intrinsic content in order to help us succeed in applying the Greatest Commandment of all.

God gave them to us so we can obey them. Those who choose to ignore them do so to their own detriment. See Of Legalism and Christians.

Anti-Semitism Is A trick? Oh Dear!

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

By Biblicism Institute

Jews are NOT Semites.

“…it is impossible to change the genetic make-up from Caucasian to Semitic. Which automatically nullifies their claim to be returning to Israel, the land of their forebears, because their forebears were never in Biblical Israel,” explained Benjamin Disraeli, a former Jew who converted to Christianity and a Victorian Prime Minister of Great Britain, referring to the Ashkenazi Jews who were migrating from Russia and Eastern Europe to Palestine, with a view to turning the Arab country into Israel.

So why do they call themselves so?

THE REAL SEMITES

Arabs, including cultural Arabs such as Chaldeans, Akkadians, Assyrians, Aramaics, Phoenicians, and Syriacs,  are the only living bloodline descendants of Abraham and the only true Semites, not converted Ashkenazic, Sephardic, Samaritan, African, European, and Indian Jews.

Why non-Semitic Zionist Jews would use the term Semite to describe themselves is intriguing, to say the least. However, upon close scrutiny the truth reveals itself.

They must pretend to be the  Chosen Semitic Hebrews of the bible – the real Hebrews are all dead – in order to steal the land of Palestine and treat the Palestinians as Untermensch.

Miko Peled

Miko Peled, son of an Israeli General

When facing criticism and condemnation for their barbaric policies towards their Palestinian victims, their tactic is to hurl the cry-wolf accusation of antisemitism in order to cower their opposition into submission.

It doesn’t hurt that said accusation also camouflages their non-Hebraic, non-Semitic ancestry by making them appear to be Semites when they’re actually not.

“It’s a trick, we always use it,” admitted Israeli Minister Shulamit Olani.

THE TRICK AND ITS PURPOSE

The antisemitism trick is strengthened by the spurious “Holocaust” which converts it into a carte blanche for Jews to do whatever they want, while they effectively utilize it to scare away those who dare point out the following facts:

  1. Jews have no divine right to Palestine because they’re not Hebrews;
  2. Israel is an apartheid state;
  3. Jews privately control the unconstitutional Federal Reserve;
  4. Jews have committed more atrocities than any other group;
  5. the “Holocaust” is a dubious historical event full of holes.

Jews also use the antisemitism trick to remove the Jesus-killer stigma. They bribe compromised preachers, such as John Hagee, and compromised publishers, such as Thomas Nelson, Inc., to brainwash the Christian flock into believing that to say Jews killed Jesus is an antisemitic act, and that only humanity’s sins did Jesus in – when the bible is quite clear on who actually killed the Messiah.

“…the Judahites, who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets.” 1 Thessalonians 2:14.

Consequently, these impostors, who are pretending to be Judahite Hebrews, get to keep their “chosen people” status, while avoiding culpability in the killing of our Lord. In other words, they enjoy the benefit of being something they’re not without taking on the guilt (i.e., they have their cake and eat it too).

THE MEDIA AND JEWISH HATRED

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 Jews are themselves the victimizers of the world (see addendum below) who camouflage themselves as victims.

That’s how they a) keep control of the Federal Reserve and b) preserve the satanic state of Israel – the twin linchpins by which they control America, the world’s greatest superpower.

But are there those who hate Jews?

Of course.

Just like there are those who hate Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, etc. There will always be bigots as long as there are humans on this planet.

Racist Israeli Jew

A Racist Israeli Jew

The Jewish Marxist 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 according to famed Christian Russian writer Alexandr Solzhenitsyn.

Now that’s hate! And a real Holocaust!

Yet, compared with the spurious Jewish “Holocaust,” we don’t get brainwashed with it day in and day out. There’s no school curriculum about it, and there are no laws against those who deny its accuracy, like there are in Europe. No Christian Holocaust Memorial has been built in Washington DC for these victims, and Jews are not labeled Christian Haters.

So why don’t we Christians do like the Jews? Implement a similar Holocaust propaganda campaign and cry wolf every time we get a chance?

There are two reasons why we won’t do so.

1) The only death worth commemorating is the death of our Savior Jesus Christ who defeated death by rising from the dead. Actually by memorializing His death we are really celebrating His resurrection. Therefore, there’s no point in solemnizing or even worshiping death since it’s already vanquished.

2) The only way to eradicate bigotry is with love.

In His Amrs

In Jesus’s arms, only love.

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21

” ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22: 37-40

“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…” Matthew 5:44

“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.” Luke 6:32

CONCLUSION

Zionist Jews of all stripes – secular, religious, political – have no concept of God’s commandment to love thy neighbor. Instead, the anti-Christ spirit of hate thy neighbor permeates their souls with a sulfuric stench.

Unfortunately, many in the West – especially brainwashed Christians, poisoned by compromised preachers and their false teachings in reference to converted Jews being “God’s chosen people” – became infected with said diseased spirit as well. Their unabashed hatred of Arabs and Muslims to please the Jews is shamefully evident to all.

“The companion of fools will suffer harm.” Proverbs 13:20

Still, these infected Christians don’t even blush when they disgracefully call Jesus their Lord.

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7: 15, 22-23

To them we say, “Don’t be surprised on Judgment Day!”

“If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? 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

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

The Chosen People Syndrome

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

By Biblicism Institute

The Chosen People Syndrome is an offshoot of the Hebrew Disease. It is a spiritual ailment that afflicts many Jews who actually believe that they are Hebrews – the real Hebrews are all dead – and therefore superior to all other races, the Untermensch.

Holocaust IndustryThis false projection causes them to reject their various origins (i.e., Ashkenazic, Sephardic, Samaritan, African, European, etc.) and entrench themselves in the Rassenhygiene 2.0.

Stop Killing PalestiniansThe disease’s by-product is a kind of Stockholm Syndrome, courtesy of the incessant drumming of the Holocaust Industry: Jews are special and therefore can get away with what the Nazis couldn’t (i.e. racial superiority; invasion and occupation of other people’s lands; indiscriminate bombings of innocent men, women, and children; etc.). And if one dares to condemn their actions, one is slurred with the cry-wolf accusation of anti-semitism.

THE REAL CHOSEN ONES

Those afflicted with this syndrome fail to understand why God chose the Ancient Hebrewsnot converted Jews – in the first place.

1) He wanted a group of people to serve as Light unto the Nations (i.e., to make converts by propagating the news that there is only one God and His name is Jehovah). The Hebrews were a complete failure at that, though they did manage to make many disciples worldwide.

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15

2) The entire exercise or raison d’être of the 12 Hebrew Tribes was just God’s way of nurturing for Himself an earthly home and family for when He decided to visit in the person of Jesus, the Savior of the world.

“And thou, Bethlehem Ephrata, art a little one among the thousands of Judah: out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be the ruler in Israel: and his going forth is from the beginning, from the days of eternity.” Micah 5:2

Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem, Judah (and was crucified in Jerusalem, Judah). And only Jesus’s going forth could have been from the beginning, from the days of eternity because He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was Emmanuel, God with us (God made flesh).

“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us.” Matthew 1:23

From the very beginning, God’s plan was to always include all the nations of the earth within His family once the Messiah had arrived.

“And through your [Abraham’s] offspring [Jesus] all the families of the earth shall be blessed because Abraham obeyed me…” Genesis 26: 4

“The scepter shall not depart from Judah [Jesus was born in Bethlehem, Judah], Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh (Messiah) comes, And to him shall be the obedience of the nations.” Genesis 49:10

THE AFFLICTED ONES

The Chosen People Syndrome affects many.

1) Virulent Zionist Israeli Jews suffer the greater affliction. It’s like a drug to them.

Stockholm SyndromeWithout it they have no viable excuse as to why they stole Palestine, especially since all the real Hebrews irrevocably died in 70 AD, their land inheritance buried with them.

The end result of their addiction is a severe case of Stockholm Syndrome, whereby as recent victims turned oppressors they want to wipe out the ones who are now their victims, the Palestinians.

2) Brainwashed Jews and Christians are the ones who as they get wiser realize that they’ve been fed a bunch of hooey. Unfortunately, not all of them have woken up.

For instance, the Jewish creators of The Big Bang Theory TV series, who never depict Christians in a good light and never miss an opportunity to attack Christ through the eccentric Sheldon character and his hypocrite “Christian” mother, often have the show’s Rajesh (Hindu) and Wolowitz (Jewish) say idiotic things like “my Hebraic friend” and “my people wandered in the desert,” when in fact Ashkenazic Jews are not Hebrews and never got close to the desert until they stole Palestine.

However, the saddest creatures of all are the Brainwashed Christians of the CUFI variety, who in fact should know better. Unfortunately, they’ve been poisoned by the likes of John Hagee and their false teachings.

Hopefully, the whole lot will someday snap out of their miasmatic somnolence.

No Criticism Allowed

No Criticism & Truth Allowed

3) Politicians and Zionist “Christian Leaders” who are either symptomatic, or most likely are just faking it simply because they are wolves in sheep clothing.

In other words, those who are faking it smell money. What better way is there to bilk Afflicted Wealthy Zionist Jews than to side with them in order to gorge at the trough? A classic case of outfoxing the fox?

4) Some Former Jews who are now Christians still hang on to it because it makes them feel special. Apparently, Jesus is not enough for them. They want to be set apart. Unfortunately, that is totally  NOT biblical.

“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

They don’t want to assimilate with other Christians. Instead, they choose to separate themselves by pretending to be Judahites (i.e., by pretending to be more important than the rest of the Body of Christ). They are thus abiding in sin.

“…those liars who say they are Judahites but are not…” Rev 3:9

They even call themselves Jewish-Christians. They conveniently ignore the fact that being Jewish is being part of a religious group, and not part of the once chosen Hebrew race which no longer exists as a people.

Talmudic Judaism is an evil religion that used to be known as Pharisaism. A religion that rejects Christ. And how they figure they can be both Jewish and Christian is beyond comprehension. It’s like a Satanist who becomes a Christian and decides he’s now a Satanist-Christian. Jews For Jesus should be Former Jews For Jesus, just like it would be Former Satanists For Jesus. Can you imagine Satanists for Jesus? Ridiculous, right?

Unfortunately, that’s what the disease does. It removes all trace of logic, common sense, and compassion.

THE BIBLE

Another side effect of the disease is the lack of biblical or spiritual understanding. The afflicted ones cannot properly understand the Bible.

1) Brainwashed Biblical Scholars wrongly kept the English expression “Jew” in the Bible. The word Jew, as it is understood today, does not mean Judahite as the Hebrew/Greek word in the non-translated Bible indicates.

Its modern connotation points to someone who follows and adheres to a faith similar to that of the Pharisees of the tribe of Judah, but is not of the tribe and stock of Judah. In other words, Jews today are people from nations other than the 12 Hebrew tribes who practice a religion known as Judaism/Pharisaism.

2) The afflicted ones strangely forget that the Judahite Hebrews kept God’s covenant with Moses by slaughtering and eating a lamb for Passover. Jesus performed it with his disciples. The lamb was killed and eaten in a private home.

The sacrifice of the Passover Lamb in the Hebrew home was God’s very contract with each individual ancient Hebrew, and that’s why Jesus fulfilled it with his disciples in order to introduce the new covenant.

“Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household.” Exodus 12:3

Jews don’t kill a lamb for Passover in their homes to keep the old contract alive, and most of them follow the Talmud (the real Satanic Verses), a man-inspired book full of Babylonian superstitions.

Bible Book3) Brainwashed Christians do not realize that the Epistles and the Book of Revelation were letters written by the Apostles to their contemporaries – many addressed to their fellow Hebrews and not to the converted Jews of today – admonishing them, warning them, and urging them to prepare for what was to come.

And what was to come?

The Destruction or Genocide of the entire Hebrew race, otherwise known as the Apocalypse, the Tribulation, the Desolation, the Armageddon, and the End of the Age of the Old Covenant and of Satan’s dominion upon the earth.

“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

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

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

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 reason He patiently waited was because:

“…they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience, so these also now have been disobedient, that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy. For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.” Romans 11: 28-31

Basically, the Apostles were urging all disobedient Hebrews to accept Christ and to live accordingly. Their epistles were all written prior to 70 AD.

“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

Progress of Roman Army during Jerusalem Siege

Roman Army Progress. Jerusalem Siege 70 AD.

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 where all the Hebrews had come up from all the country and the world to the feast of unleavened bread.

The desolation or the end of the age of all the unbelieving and disobedient Hebrews finally materialized. However, those who accepted Christ  obeyed the Apostles’ warning and fled beforehand. Thus those Christian Hebrews who escaped embodied “all Israel shall be saved”‘ of Romans 11:26.

The reason God eliminated the entire Hebrew race was because His gifts and calling are irrevocable (Romans 11: 28-31). So He had to irrevocably kill all the remaining non-Christian Hebrews, otherwise he would have had to keep the Old Covenant alive, and thereby undercut and undermine His Son’s New Covenant.

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

“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

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

And 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

CONCLUSION

Fortunately, there are many Jewish groups along with many individual Jews who are not infected with the syndrome. They are trying their best to educate their coreligionists.

Of Authority And Christians

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

By Biblicism Institute

The word Authority comes from the Latin word Auctor which means Father, Producer, and Progenitor. Therefore, the very idea of Authority requires an Authority Figure who establishes his rule by producing and enforcing laws that ultimately fit his purpose.

God is the Father, Progenitor, and Producer of all seen and unseen things. He is the One to whom we must look in order to understand and apply the laws He has stipulated for us to follow.

Jesus on trial

Jesus facing the Sanhedrin authorities.

His laws touch every sphere of life: family, workplace, church (assembly), and earthly secular governments.

FAMILY AUTHORITY

The following two verses are the most important in the whole bible as pertained to the alignment of heavenly and earthly authority.

“But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” 1 Corinthians 11:3

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your Father and Mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth.” Ephesians 6: 1-3

1) The head of woman is man, not Jesus. The head of an unmarried woman is her father or the elder son if dad is deceased. The head of a married woman is her husband or whomever the husband puts in charge after his passing, usually the elder son who has the right of the firstborn.

“He shall acknowledge… the firstborn (male), by giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.” Deuteronomy 21:17

For example, Jesus, who was Mary‘s firstborn male son and was looking after her upon Joseph’s death, asked his disciple John to take care of her when he was dying on the cross.

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold, your son!’  Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.” John 19:26,27

2) When the Apostle Paul mentioned Children in Ephesians 6:1-3, he did not mean little kids only. The root of the Greek word for Children is Tikto which means to “produce,” as from a seed. Whether one is a kid or an adult, one is still the child or “product” of one’s parents.

“And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? Bless me, [even] me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.” Genesis 27: 38

To Honor and Obey one’s parents does not stop after the traditional and arbitrary age of eighteen. Therefore, given the seriousness of parental authority God admonishes parents thus:

“Fathers, do not anger your children, but rear them in the discipline and in the teaching of Our Lord.” Ephesians 6: 4

Many hardcore cult leaders, disguised as preachers, often tell young and unmarried adults in their congregations, that if their parents are not Christians (read: not attending “their” churches), they can ignore their authority.

That’s their way of isolating these folks from their families in order to control them and steal their money through the erroneous tenet of church tithing, much like a pack of wolves separate and hunt down the weakest prey from the herd.

God never said to obey and honor one’s parents only if they’re Christians. He said to obey and honor. Period. Just because the Apostle Paul said to “obey your parents in the Lord” (Ephesians 6:1) doesn’t mean that your parents are to be in the Lord. It means obey your parents because of the Lord, or because you are in the Lord, or because it is a command from the Lord.

“Honor your father and your mother.” Exodus 20: 12

“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15

These “preachers” are twisting God’s word to fit their own agenda.

WORKPLACE AUTHORITY

Christians should submit to their bosses and be the best workers in the workplace.

“Servants, [be] subject to [your] masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.” 1 Peter 2: 18

Christian bosses and workers should always go beyond that which is required.

“If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.” Matthew 5: 41

Slaves (Servants), be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ; not by way of eye service, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men,knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.” Ephesians 6: 5-9

The meaning of the word slave is the one which Christ used in the following verse:

“…but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave…” Matthew 20:27

In other words, a slave is a servant, or in today’s parlance an employee, who does all to please his master or boss. The Greek word Doulos which means slave is also translated as servant.

Neither a Christian employee nor a Christian boss should do anything that could be construed as being against biblical laws, especially if a Christian worker is asked to do something that is forbidden by God or that goes against his/her conscience.

“…their conscience also bearing witness…” Romans 2:15

“The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.” James 5: 4

CHURCH OR ASSEMBLY AUTHORITY

Biblically, the “church” is an assembly composed of Christians, hence not an institution. It is the Body of Christ.

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12: 27

Therefore, Christ is the head of His own body. No one else. The only Authority that exists in the church or assembly is Jesus Christ working though His Holy Spirit.

But you are not to be called ‘Teacher,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘Father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called Leaders (or Masters), for you have one Leader (or Master), the Messiah.” Matthew 23:8-10

Simply put, the head of every man is Christ.

However, there will be those who will point to the following verse in order to commandeer Christ’s authority unto themselves:

“Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that [is] unprofitable for you.” Hebrews 13: 17

Actually, the proper translation should be: “Obey them who esteem (care about) you…” And even if the above translation of “rule” were left intact, it would still need to match every other biblical verse that addresses the Authority paradigm, especially these:

“But Jesus called them to Himself and said, ‘You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Matthew 20: 25-28

Not that we have dominion over your faith…” 2 Corinthians 1: 24

[As a side note, please keep in mind that some verses concerning “Ecclesiastical Function” in the New Testament have been wrongly translated from the Greek using the English word “rule” or “authority” when it should be something else. Please exercise wisdom while using an appropriate Greek/English lexicon to guide you in your study.]

The only people who truly care and/or who can “rule” over anyone are the following:

1) God, head of Christ

“Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” John 5: 19

2) Christ, head of man

“If you love me, you (man) will obey what I command.” John 14: 15

“Cast all your care on Him, because He cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7

3) Man, head of woman

Wives, respect and obey your husbands…” 1 Peter 2: 1

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.” Ephesians 5: 22

4) Parents, heads of children

Children, obey your parents...” Ephesians 6: 1

5) Christ, head of the assembly

Christ is also the head of the assembly, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything.” Colossians 1: 18

Every ministry worker, including Prophets, Evangelists, Overseers, and Teachers, are only servants, and they themselves must learn to submit not only to Christ but also to the body of Christ. See Understanding the Duties of Ministry.

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” Ephesians 5: 21

“But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.” 1 Corinthians 12: 24-26

GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY

There is only one Government that controls everything on earth. It’s the Government of Christ.

“Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9: 7

True Christians are unequivocally under the jurisdiction of Christ’s government and thus under Biblical Laws.

However, because non-Christians do not follow Christ and His laws God has established sub-governments or governing authorities (i.e., federal, state, and local governments) in every country, with their own sets of laws to rule over these non-believers.

These governments or governing authorities are God-inspired institutions, which are also designed to better manage the people’s affairs, including meting out true and fair justice. Their existence is not meant to oppress a populace, even if they’re not Christians, or for unscrupulous individuals to take advantage of them for personal gains.

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.” Romans 13: 1-5

True Christians cannot be by any stretch of the imagination wrongdoers or evildoers; but, as Christ’s Ambassadors on earth, God has ordered His people to follow and obey the laws of the various countries in which they temporarily live.

Burned AngelHowever, Christian obedience to man-made laws of sub-governments or governing authorities is not intended to be absolute, since there will be instances of these laws that violate scriptures. Therefore, if such laws from Governing Authorities are contrary to God’s laws, the following principle applies:

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

For example, if a Christian is asked to go kill in the name of the State in some godforsaken war, this would obviously contradict God’s commands.

“Thou shall not kill.” Exodus 20:13

“They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.” Isaiah 2:4

Then Jesus said to him, ‘Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.’ ” Matthew 26: 52

Consequently, insofar as man-made laws of Governing Authorities do not violate God’s biblical laws, Christians comply.

CONCLUSION

Authority originates with God, and His laws establish His governance which is rooted in love for the protection of those under its umbrella.

“God is love.” 1 John 4: 8

Likewise, all earthly governing authorities must have love at their core and as their essence, otherwise they will descend into authoritarianism or dictatorship (i.e., authority excised from God’s parameters) and ruthlessness (i.e., absence of love).

However, love in and of itself is not void of discipline.

“Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.” Proverbs 12:1

“For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11

Cases in point: 1) if a parent commands his toddler not to stick his finger in an electric socket, it is for the well being of the child, even if the child doesn’t understand why his parent is being so “mean”; 2) if a father does not approve of the dating partner of his child (adult or not) for reasons his child is too blind to see, the child must yield to his father’s authority and wisdom. See The Biblical Marriage Blueprint.

After all, if one cannot obey one’s earthly father whom one can see, how will one obey one’s heavenly father whom one cannot see?

Unfortunately, where there’s earthly authority there will be conflict. Hence, keep in mind this succinct formula we call Conflict Resolution 101:

Marital ConflictStep 1

Love the other party as yourself.

Step 2

See step no 1.

Whether the scope of a conflict is personal, familial, marital, regional, or worldwide, there’s only the above two-step solution. It’s the easiest one in the world. Heed to it.

“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” Colossians 3:13

The purpose of the authoritative system is to bring glory to God, as our obedience to His laws proves our love for Him. Therefore, let us ensure that everyone, whether in authority or under authority, elevates every sphere of life with love for the glory of the One who died for us.

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22: 36-40

Who Should Christians Give Their Money To?

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

By Biblicism Institute

Money is the reward for your hard work, therefore be judicious how you spend it.

It is foremost to satisfy your needs and the needs of your family – today, in bad times, and in your later years – while not forgetting those less fortunate.

DON’T BE LIKE THE UNRIGHTEOUS STEWARD

“In a wise man’s dwelling, precious treasures and oils are stored.” Proverbs 21: 20

“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.” Proverbs 13:22

You are just a steward of the money you earn, therefore learn to control it before it controls you. In other words, get in the habit of using and bequeathing it properly:

a. meet your family’s needs (vacation included);

b. don’t waste money on frivolous things;

c. prepare for bad times (savings and insurance);

d. invest in your retirement;

e. lay away for your children’s future;

f. take eternity into account and apply Jesus’s parable of The Unrighteous Steward from Luke 16:

1 AND he said also to his disciples: There was a certain rich man who had a steward: and the same was accused unto him, that he had wasted his goods.

2 And he called him, and said to him: How is it that I hear this of you? Give an account of your stewardship: for now you can’t be steward no longer.

3And the steward said within himself: What shall I do, because my lord takes away from me the stewardship? To dig I am not able; to beg I am ashamed.

4 I know what I will do, that when I shall be removed from the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.

5 Therefore calling together every one of his lord’s debtors, he said to the first: How much dost thou owe my lord?

6 But he said: An hundred barrels of oil. And he said to him: Take your bill and sit down quickly, and write fifty.

7 Then he said to another: And how much do you owe? Who said: An hundred quarters of wheat. He said to him: Take your bill, and write eighty.

8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, for as much as he had done wisely: for the children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light.

9 And I say to you: Make unto you friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that when you die, they may receive you into everlasting dwellings.

10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?

With that parable, Jesus delineated a two-prong position.

1) Salvation. The unrighteous steward gave away commercial goods to those who could give back to him in return. Scratch my back, I scratch yours. That’s the way of the world, and for the world it is a smart way to deal. However, you, as a disciple of Christ, have something better to give. The Gospel of Salvation. And it is not to be exchanged for filthy lucre like many “preachers” do today. It is to be given to all, expecting nothing in return. That’s why Jesus said right after:

“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Luke 16: 13

Many will argue that “preachers” don’t preach the Gospel for money. But how come they always find a way to ask for that unrighteous mammon? And how come they draw a salary as compensation? See Understanding the Duties of Ministry.

Jesus never asked for money and neither did the Apostles. Whenever the Apostles picked up a collection, it was always to give to the poor.

2) Money. You must not only give the Gospel away for free, you must also bestow money on those who can’t give back to you. That way they can see Christ in you, as well as getting a taste of the goodness of the Lord through your giving.

“Taste and see that the LORD is good.” Psalm 34: 8

“If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.” Luke 6: 33

When you give it is as if God Himself is giving. Said gesture affords you the opportunity to share Christ. It is also a seed impregnated with Christian love that later on could yield the fruit of change in marginal “Christians,” or salvation in the souls of those who do not know ChristThat’s why Jesus said to “make friends using unrighteous mammon.”

Thereupon, those at the receiving end of your gift, once saved, will be able to partake with you of the everlasting life, which is the real dividend or the true riches that God Himself will assign to you as your own.

Unfortunately, many are in the habit of telling those who are in need that they’ll “pray” for them. But of what use are these prayers?

“If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,’ and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?” James 2: 15-17

If God brings someone in need to YOU, or you hear of someone in need, and YOU do nothing to actually help, how will his plight be mitigated? God is not going to “personally” alleviate his suffering. He commanded YOU – His steward – to do so.

Instead, many have no qualms writing big checks for “preachers” in “ministry” who use their hard-earned money to live the high life. See Of Leaders and Servants in the Church.

In so doing they set in motion the exact opposite of what Jesus talked about in the parable. They reward these “preachers” for teaching the word, and in return these “preachers” keep preaching to get more checks.

Consequently, the whole lot become unrighteous stewards, especially as Jesus never meant for his church assembly to be a 501c3 corporation nor for it to run on money.

THE GIFT OF GIVING

Before you give make sure you take care of your family first. Then whatever you purpose in your heart to donate, do so to:

1) those in your extended family or household who are in need, and

2) those outside your family who are poor, needy, or struggling, Christians firstly and others next. See The Family is God’s Plan.

“But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, whatever I have that would help you has been given to God, he is not to honor his father or his mother.’ And by this you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition.” Matthew 15:5,6

“But if someone doesn’t provide for their own family, and especially for a member of their household, they have denied the faith. They are worse than those who have no faith.” 1 Timothy 5:8

“Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry And bring the homeless poor into the house; When you see the naked, to cover him; And not to hide yourself from your own flesh?” Isaiah 58:7

” ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You? The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ ” Matthew 25: 37-40

“…let him labour, working with [his] hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.” Ephesians 4:28

That’s how God blessed the latter days of Job.  He multiplied – through Job’s hard work – the money his brothers, sisters, and friends gifted him in order to afford him a fresh new start.

“Then came there unto him all his brothers, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold. So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning…” Job 42:11,12

In other words, give to those you personally know and to those God puts in your path. If everyone did that, the world would be a better place.

GIVING ABOVE AND BEYOND

You’ll find that even after doing all of the above, the cacophony of those vying for your money is still unmistakably loud.

a) The local church. See Ministry Money and the Tithe Lie

b) Christian businesses and other businesses disguised as ministries.

A “Christian” business is no different than a “secular” business. Both provide valuable services in exchange for monetary compensation, and they’re both under the natural laws of commerce: make a profit or fail trying. So no one should gift them any money.

Examples of Christian businesses would be: stores that sell Christian paraphernalia, music, movies, and the like; touring Christian bands and singers; Christian radio stations; etc.

In general, God does not look upon these businesses as being different than secular ones, as long as their owners treat their customers and employees as they would themselves, and as long as the following is observed:

“Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8

Where many Christian businesses fudge the line is when they portray themselves as ministries. A Christian ministry, contrary to a Christian business, provides a service without any exchange of money, and when it receives any donation it is to give to those in need and not to enrich the service providers. See Understanding the Duties of Ministry.

The most notorious of those “businesses as ministries” are churches and media ministries whose “leaders” use money drives and peddle  books, CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and paraphernalia of all sorts, in order to enrich themselves through exorbitant salaries and perks, while many in the flock can’t even pay the electric bill.

c) Other actual ministries and secular charities.

When it comes to giving above and beyond what is required, especially if you have plenty to spare, let Jesus Himself tone down the noise.

“Jesus said unto him, If you will be perfect, go and sell all that you have, and give it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven: then come and follow me.” Matthew 19:21

First, let’s make it clear that what Jesus told that man was for that man. He told him to sell everything and give it all away. As for you, you must listen to what Jesus has to tell you. The scope of His order for you might be quite different. And how do you hear Him? He tugs your heart gently and repeatedly until His will permeates your spirit – that is if you’re truly open to hearing Him.

Second, when Jesus told the man to give all his money to the poor, He didn’t demand that the money be given to “His ministry” or “His organization.” He told the man to personally go and distribute it.

The idea is to bless others one on one. Again, that way they can see Jesus working through you, as it is an occasion to share the love of Christ – not to shove it down their throats.

“Let your gentleness be evident to all.” Philippians 4:5

Crying Boy

Crying Boy

However, for a tiny minority it might be logistically difficult to personally give away a large amount of money to a lot of different individuals. Still, nothing is impossible, and you’ll never know until you try.

Some alternative solutions might be to start your own foundation/ministry, or to give in-kind contributions instead of cash to existing ministries/organizations that cater to the needy.

In these instances, ministries that cater to the needy can 1) incorporate to help raise money and legally protect themselves, and 2) hire employees or contractors, if Christian volunteers cannot be found. See Understanding the Duties of Ministry.

Still, if you feel strongly inclined to financially help one or various of those outside organizations, Christian or secular, make sure you (or your accountant) personally examine how they’re handling (or mishandling) their finances, as well as keeping in mind that many of them are just fronts for unscrupulous individuals to draw hefty salaries. Again Please See Understanding the Duties of Ministry.

CONCLUSION

In God’s Kingdom on earth, we Christians don’t give to get back. We give freely just the way God gives because we want to emulate Him.

“Remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ “Acts 20:35

“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, freely give us all things?” Romans 8:32

Therefore, God doesn’t bless us because of what we give or do.

“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

He blesses us because of who He is.

“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” Psalm 23:1

Gifted money should almost always go to those who are in need, whether they’re in want for food, clothing, shelter, health care, education, bible, etc.

Consequently, follow the lead of the Holy Spirit and apply due diligence. In the end, you have to make the call.

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

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.

Palestine Post Palestine Currency Board

Jerusalem, Palestine 1900s

Jerusalem, Palestine 1900s

That all 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

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 bribed 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.

Palestinian Scouts, Jaffa, Palestine 1924

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 over 3 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.
