The False Messiah

 

(Edition 2.0 20100109-20100804)

 

We often come across some of the propaganda from the Rabbis regarding why Yahoshua (Jesus/Iesou or Joshua) the Christ did not fulfil the scriptures and hence could not be the Messiah. It is a good time to deal with this fiction and expose some of this rabbinical propaganda for the fallacy that it is and where it is directed.

The False Messiah




Preparing for the False Messiah

God is about to deal with the nation of Judah and their aspirations concerning the Temple and its reconstruction and their refusal to abandon their traditions and follow the laws of God free of their traditions. These traditions are what they call the so-called Oral Law as though God did not write it all down for us to clearly understand. Thus they make black white and white black through the Talmud.

 

The article by the Jewish Rabbi Shraga Simmons titled Why Don’t Jews Believe in Jesus is a good example of the confusion that exists in the Judaic mindset as to what the NT actually teaches and what Christianity actually is.

 

Let us be perfectly clear about one thing. Trinitarian Sunday-worshipping Christianity is not the faith of the being called Jesus Christ and the First Century Church of God. That false teaching and false interpretation of the Bible will never convince any sound thinking population, neither Jew, nor indeed Muslim, nor anyone of the true Christian faith. Its effect is merely piecemeal disintegration.

 

There is some common ground upon which we can agree; Shraga Simmons writes at http://www.simpletoremember.com/articles/a/jewsandjesus/

 

“What exactly is the Messiah?

The word “Messiah” is an English rendering of the Hebrew word “Mashiach”, which means ‘Anointed.’ It usually refers to a person initiated into God’s service by being anointed with oil. (Exodus 29:7, I Kings 1:39, II Kings 9:3)

 

Since every King and High Priest was anointed with oil, each may be referred to as ‘an anointed one”’ (a Mashiach or a Messiah). For example: ‘God forbid that I [David] should stretch out my hand against the Lord’s Messiah [Saul]...’ (I Samuel 26:11. Cf. II Samuel 23:1, Isaiah 45:1, Psalms 20:6)

 

Where does the Jewish concept of Messiah come from? One of the central themes of Biblical prophecy is the promise of a future age of perfection characterized by universal peace and recognition of God. (Isaiah 2:1-4; Zephaniah 3:9; Hosea 2:20-22; Amos 9:13-15; Isaiah 32:15-18, 60:15-18; Micah 4:1-4; Zechariah 8:23, 14:9; Jeremiah 31:33-34)

 

Many of these prophetic passages speak of a descendant of King David who will rule Israel during the age of perfection. (Isaiah 11:1-9; Jeremiah 23:5-6, 30:7-10, 33:14-16; Ezekiel 34:11-31, 37:21-28; Hosea 3:4-5)”

 

This man then seeks to isolate the above as the only description of the Messiah. He also ignores Zechariah 12:8 which states quite clearly that it will be a resurrected David himself that rules under the Angel of Yahovah himself that presides over Jerusalem and the house of David as elohim.

 

The failure to isolate the scripture of Daniel 9:25 to show the mistranslation by the Trinitarian scholars so they can isolate this scripture to Jesus Christ is obvious.  It would be a very good example to quote to show that this scripture had been wrested to incorrectly translate the text to apply it to Christ.

 

However, that could not be done by a Jew as it would identify the prophecy of the history of the Reconstruction of the Temple and that there were two anointed ones in this text. Moreover, they would have to place the history in its correct biblical context which would also have shown the prophecy in its correct time frame and why God was to destroy them. It would also have shown that one of the anointed ones, or messiahs, was Nehemiah who restored Jerusalem and the Temple with Ezra in the exact year prophesied in the reign of Artaxerxes II.  The second one had to be an anointed one that was cut off, but not for himself, as was prophesied in the text. However, that would have put the prophecy in perspective in relation to Jesus the Christ. The time frame made the year in question one week of years before the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple by the Romans in 70 CE; that was in 63/64 CE. 

 

This anointed one had to be an anointed one as described in this definition above. In that year there was only one person who could have qualified of the line of David and that person was of the tribe of Judah and of the line of David but a servant of God and the Christ. He was the brother of Jesus Christ and the bishop of Jerusalem, James son of Joseph and Mariam. 

 

To expose this translation error would have entailed the rabbis being faced with this serious issue which would have drawn attention to the fact that the text in Daniel was fulfilled and the people involved were of the Davidic lineage and the fate of the Temple stood in the hands of God. His judgment had fallen on Judah and Jerusalem because of their sin and error and they cannot face the fact that they were condemned because they sinned and were judged by the Christ. He was the man Yahoshua called Iesuo by the Greeks and Romans and Joshua in the English of his name. They do not mention the prophecy because they cannot explain it within their paradigm (see the paper Sign of Jonah and the History of the Reconstruction of the Temple (No. 013)).

 

In their quest for the Messiah and the Reconstruction of the Temple they are also partially dependent upon the prophecy of the Reconstruction of the Hurva Synagogue in Jerusalem. A modern Jewish prophecy ties it to the commencement of the Third Temple.

 

The Hurva Synagogue was built in the 18th century in Jerusalem.  Vilna Gaon, a respected rabbinical authority, prophesied that the Hurva would be destroyed and rebuilt twice, and that when the Hurva was completed for the third time, construction on the Third Temple would begin.


The Hurva Synagogue was first destroyed shortly after its initial construction when Muslims, demanding the return of loans, tore it down. The synagogue was rebuilt a hundred years later. It became the most important Jewish house of worship in the Holy Land. However, it was blown to pieces by Jordanian troops during Israel's 1948 War of Independence.

 

In 2001, Israel finally decided to rebuild the landmark, which today stands in the centre of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem's Old City. The building is scheduled to be completed and the Hurva Synagogue dedicated for the third time on 15 March 2010. The conjunction of the New Moon of Abib falls at 23:01 Jerusalem time on 15 March. That makes the dedication fall on the last day of Adar in the 32nd Year of the 120th Jubilee. The Temple is thus prophesied to begin construction from the 16th day of March, which is the New Moon of Abib of the 33rd year of the 120th Jubilee. The question is where do they build it?  If it is in the Holy Place they will have to remove the Mosques and start a war. If so then that will indeed be the abomination of desolation standing in the Holy Place. This synagogue with all its Rabbinical and Talmudic traditions will rest upon the Babylonian traditions. The Babylonian Calendar and its days of worship will be introduced to the Holy Place. If that occurs then the Bible is clear that you get out of Jerusalem (Mat. 24:15; Mk. 13:14).  The six pointed star of the god Remphan or Chiun will be there as its symbol of human sacrifice and desolation.

 

From Christ’s recorded statements the bleakest part of this time will be in the winter and on a Sabbath. The New Moon of the Tenth month in 2010 is on Monday 6 December and the Sabbaths fall on 4, 11, 18 and 25 December, or the day of the pagan festival called Christmas. If this is indeed the time spoken of by the Christ it would be perfect to destroy the entire system, commencing from Jerusalem, on the day of false worship of the Sun god’s system called Xmas.

 

The tribe of Judah will then commence to be dealt with in detail. However, we have a problem with these Jewish prophecies. What does this rabbi say about Christ? He says that Jesus Christ did not fulfil the Messianic prophecies.

 

He poses the questions:

 “What is the Messiah supposed to accomplish?

 

The Bible says that he will:

 

A.Build the Third Temple (Ezekiel 37:26-28).

 

B. Gather all Jews back to the Land of Israel (Isaiah 43:5-6).

 

C. Usher in an era of world peace, and end all hatred, oppression, suffering and disease. As it says: "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall man learn war anymore." (Isaiah 2:4)

 

D. Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel, which will unite humanity as one. As it says: "God will be King over all the world—on that day, God will be One and His Name will be One" (Zechariah 14:9).”

 

The Messiah on his return to Jerusalem will indeed, according to the Bible, have the Temple built. It is thus clear that the Jews, in order to claim prophecy and build the Temple, will have to assert a new and false Messiah.

 

Jews claim that Jesus fulfilled none of these messianic prophecies. The fact is that he could only, and was meant to only, commence the fulfilment of point D above. That is, the Holy Spirit was to be made available from his sacrifice to all nations. Thus the knowledge of God was made available from that time.

 

They acknowledge that Christian doctrine asserts that Christ will restore Jerusalem and rebuild the Temple on his return. However, they claim that Jewish sources show that the Messiah will fulfil the prophecies outright, and no concept of a second coming exists. This completely false statement ignores all the Bible texts some of which literally state and show that the Messiah was to sit at the Right Hand of God until He made his enemies his footstool.

 

The Yahovah of Israel states categorically that Yahovah of Hosts will send him to rescue Israel and then they will know that Yahovah of Hosts has sent him (Zech. 2:6-13). This shows that there are two Yahovahs involved and that this Yahovah is sent by Yahovah of Hosts. This is unexamined by the Trinitarians and the Jews find it too inconvenient to explain. This being was the Angel of the Presence that gave the Law to Moses and he was the subordinate elohim of Psalm 45:6-7. He is identified as Messiah in Hebrew 1:8-9. He was sent to restore Jerusalem and thus this final event had to be in the Last Days. We see in chapter 3 following it that it refers to the restoration of the High Priesthood under the Branch and this text follows the reference in chapter 2 of the prophecy of his despatch and the restoration.

 

The Oracle at chapter 12 shows that the period of the developments in Zechariah is from the First Resurrection of the dead and the reorganisation of Jerusalem, as David is alive and placed as their leader and they will be as elohim as the Angel of the Lord who is at the head of the elect. It is this text that shows that in those days the inhabitants will look on him whom they have pierced. This text refers to the cleansing of the nation under the Messiah who is of the house of David through Nathan and the House of Levi through Shimei. This cleansing is the mourning of Judah in its repentance through understanding that it killed its own Messiah in Jerusalem. In that day of the mourning the whole system will be changed and there will be no more prophets in the land of Israel.

 

Judaism claims also that Jesus did not embody the personal qualifications of the Messiah. The rabbis claim:

“Jesus was not a prophet. Prophecy can only exist in Israel when the land is inhabited by a majority of world Jewry. During the time of Ezra (circa 300 BCE), when the majority of Jews refused to move from Babylon to Israel, prophecy ended upon the death of the last prophets—Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.

 

Jesus appeared on the scene approximately 350 years after prophecy had ended.”

 

Thus God’s hands were tied by the fact that He allegedly decided not to deal with Judah through any further prophets. The fact was that He had dealt with these Jews and prophesied that they would be dispersed and their Temple destroyed in 70 CE exactly as it was destroyed. On this basis there will never be a prophet in Israel as the majority of Judaism is outside of the current physical Israel. God is not limited by the notions of men, and especially those who pervert His Laws.

 

The records of the existence of prophecy are contained in the NT and all of those prophecies stand as a witness against Judah and its corrupt system. The Angel of the Lord was sent to the High Priest of the division of Abijah and he was told he was to father a prophet and that his wife’s cousin was also to be the mother of the Messiah. That is recorded as fact in the gospels. His lineage is also recorded in the gospels and the rabbinical authorities admit the lineage in Luke 3 is that of Mariam the mother of Jesus Christ (see the paper Genealogy of the Messiah (No. 119)).

 

Christ was sent to Judah as Jonah was sent to Nineveh and he told Judah exactly that fact. There is a multitude of prophecy that condemns Judah and they will not acknowledge it because that would entail admitting the truth and repenting.

 

Firstly, the destruction of the lines of Judah was undertaken by Herod as a matter of history. It was undertaken for no other known reason than to eliminate a potential rival from the royal house of Judah. The royal line of Judah ceased to sit in Judah and Jerusalem as Exilarchs while Messiah was alive. It is a matter of historical and genealogical record (see the paper From David and the Exilarchs to the House of Windsor (No. 67)). His birth was recorded as being prophesied in the Temple by the prophets there. That should have told them something. However, they ignored it. Unfortunately, Herod did not ignore it and killed many people as history records.

 

Judah was then sent John the Baptist to prophesy of his coming. He commenced to preach in the year of the Jubilee and he baptised his cousin Yahoshua the Christ in the Jordan as is well recorded. He was imprisoned and killed by the Hasmoneans. Christ began his ministry, as is recorded, after the imprisonment of the Baptist, which occurred after the Passover of 28 CE. He told them that they were sinning by their traditions and he commenced the Church in replacement of the Levitical priesthood. The entire nation of Judah had the Bible texts and the prophecies that told them that the Temple was to be destroyed.

 

They were sent Christ as the greatest prophet they had ever known. He preached to them for two years as Jonah had preached to Nineveh for two days after walking in a day’s Journey into Nineveh and then commenced preaching. Jonah had been prepared and a great fish had been prepared for him and he was placed in its belly and taken to do his job at Nineveh. In like manner Christ had given up his pre-existence as the Great Angel of the Covenant that gave the Law to Moses at Sinai and was placed in the belly of a virgin and carried for nine months and then born in Bethlehem, which is the seat and family inheritance of David. Christ was born as a prince of Judah of the line of Jesse and David. His promised inheritance was to be the entire nation of Israel and the entire fullness of the Gentiles was to be inducted into them as prophesied by Jacob in the blessing of Ephraim and not Judah (Gen. 48:13-22, esp. v. 19). His inheritance as one of the sons of God was recorded in Deuteronomy 32:8 as recorded in the Septuagint (LXX) and the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) and that is why the rabbis had to alter the Masoretic Text (MT) to disguise the fact that the Yahovah of Israel had been given Israel as his inheritance by God. They also altered the MT in 132 places to disguise the relationship of Yahovah and Yahovih (see the paper Angel of YHVH (No. 24)). He was the angel mentioned by Jacob in the blessings at Genesis 48:16 that had protected him all his life. They will do anything rather than admit this relationship in the OT texts.

 

The Trinitarian Church responses to the Jewish claims merely further corrupt their understanding.

 

The Jewish claims are simply that:

“According to Jewish sources, the Messiah will be born of human parents and possess normal physical attributes like other people. He will not be a demi-god, (1) nor will he possess supernatural qualities.

 

The Messiah must be descended on his father’s side from King David (see Genesis 49:10 and Isaiah 11:1). According to the Christian claim that Jesus was the product of a virgin birth, he had no father—and thus could not have possibly fulfilled the messianic requirement of being descended on his father’s side from King David! (2)” (ibid.).

 

This is tied in to the desire to deny the supernatural aspect of the Messiah. Christ could not have held the kingship as a descendant of Jeconiah unless he had specific dispensation of God. He achieved that in his relationship with Joseph as his adoptive father. Joseph was a descendant of Coniah and thus his son could not have been king without direct dispensation from God.  The Messiah has to be of the lineage of Levi through Shimei also (see # 119 ibid).

 

Isaiah 11:1 says that the Messiah had to be of the root and stem of Jesse the father of David and a branch out of his roots. It is true that only a male can carry the YDNA of his father. Christ was dependent upon God for the creation of his YDNA to mirror that of the line of David, as was Adam dependent on God for his YDNA. Yet the Jews claim specifically that a person cannot be a Jew unless it is born from a Jewish mother, as it inherits its Jewishness from its mother. Messiah has to also have come from a Levite of Shimei. We know for a fact that Mariam had both Jewish lineage from her father and Levite lineage from her mother, as Mariam’s mother was the sister of Elisabeth the wife of the High Priest of the division of Abijah and the mother of John the Baptist. These lines of priests married only Levites. The fact is that Mariam covered these two requirements.

 

Messiah also has to be the Son of God and that is the crucial aspect. The Son of God meant he was the Yahovah of Israel, his inheritance. He was the subordinate deity and Son of God, which he claimed to be at his trial before the High Priesthood. The NT also records that the High Priest prophesied that year that a man had to die for the salvation of the nation. Job has stated many centuries before that one of the thousand had to redeem him and that he prophesied of the Resurrection and that he would see the Messiah with his own eyes and not another’s eyes and he will pray unto Eloah and He will be favourable to him and he will see Eloah’s face with joy. That means he has to become a spirit in order to see Eloah and live. No man can see Eloah and never has seen Him and never will be able to see Him (cf. Job 33:23-28). Eloah is the maker or creator (Job 35:10). The Sons of God and the Morning Stars existed before the creation of this earth (Job 38:4-7), being created by Eloah.

 

The piercing of the Messiah was declared in Psalm 22 and in Zechariah 12. Christ fulfilled this prophecy of Psalm 22. He quoted it on the stauros or stake and it was fulfilled. It deals with the necessary execution of the Messiah and the only way these wounds and death were inflicted in history was by the “unhappy tree” or stauros which was a barbaric method of death invented by the Phoenicians. The Romans added a cross bar to this stake long after the death of Christ. Christ could only have come in the time he did and suffer as he did. The Masoretes altered the name Yahovah (Jehovah) to Adonai in this psalm twice (in vv. 19 and 30) to disguise the intent further. The text records that God did not turn His face from him but did indeed deliver him and the declaration of his righteousness was indeed declared to a people that were yet to be born.

 

The assertion by Jews that Psalm 22:16 (17) “they have pierced my hands and feet” as being a mistranslation depends on the standard rabbinical translation of the text as: “Like a lion they are at my hands and my feet”. The word is ariy (SHD 738) which means a young lion, but the sense is taken from the margin of the texts which has the concept of piercing the hands and the feet which is what they did to Christ in nailing him to the stake. The word is derived from SHD 717 meaning to gather or pluck. The rabbinical use seems to be done to hide its other meaning. The use of the dogs and lion analogy refers to the people and their actions in the death of the Messiah and is quite consistent with its traditional rendering.

 

Psalm 82:6 was the reference text for which Christ was put to death. He declared himself the elohim that was to judge the earth and inherit all nations (Ps. 82:8). This elohim stood in the congregation of the elohim and judged among them. The fallen Host are judged by him and are sent to the pit just as any men. But this elohim was appointed as an elohim by The Most High, the Elyon, who is Eloah. This elohim is the elohim of Psalm 45:6-7 who is the God of David yet is his descendant. If he had no pre-existence and judges among the gods, how then is he just a man with no pre-existence? (See the paper The Pre-Existence of Jesus Christ (No. 243).)

 

If he is the son of David only, how then does David, in the Holy Spirit, call him Lord? viz. “The Lord said to my Lord” (Ps. 110:1). The Sanhedrin could not answer it then and they cannot answer it now. If he has no life in the Host how then can he confess us before the Council of the Elohim? It follows he must have lived and died when he did and as he did and have had life in the Host sitting on the Right Hand Side of God while the elect are being born in order to fulfil prophecy and the plan of God. If the Messiah were a man born in these last days then Scripture has been broken. The translators of the LXX understood that the Messiah had pre-existence as in Isaiah 9:5-6 they translated it to read Angel of Great Counsel (see the paper Isaiah 9:6 (No 224)).

 

Isaiah is clear in chapter 53 when he says that the Messiah had no form or comeliness and no beauty. He was to be despised and rejected of men. The Jews thought he was smitten by God in 30 CE and they still think he was smitten for his own doings and was not the Messiah of this prophecy. Yet Isaiah says specifically that he was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon him and with his stripes we are healed.  All of us have sinned and on Christ was laid the iniquity of us all (Isa. 53:3-6).

 

Isaiah shows quite clearly in chapter 53 that the Messiah had to die for our sins. He was to be imprisoned, flogged, tortured in silence, judged and sentenced, and be put to death, which as we know involved piercing of the hands and feet, and that could only have been by death on the stake. He was punished with the wicked then buried in the newly carved tomb of a rich man among other rich men’s tombs. Jesus the Christ did all of these things and it is quite impossible for any Jew today to fulfil these prophecies. If Jesus is not the Christ, as the rabbis admit, they have no idea as to who it might be. Christ was made to be an offering for sin in death and Eloah raised him from the grave and he was to see his seed, which was the elect of the church and the doctrines and prophecy he taught. He will live forever and thus prolong his days as prophesied. His doctrines justified many. He was appointed a portion with the great and divided the spoil with the strong because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors and bore the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors (cf. Isa. 53:7-12). This prophecy cannot cover the life of a normal man and involves resurrection from the dead.

 

To suggest that this text, in following on from chapter 52, refers to the Babylonian captivity and could not refer to Christ and his death is bizarre as the structure of chapter 52 develops into the restoration of Jerusalem and Zion and then refers to the Messiah as being marred beyond semblance and that through him the nations will understand that which was not told to them and they shall see and understand that which they have not heard (Isa. 52:14-15). Through him and his sacrifice the Holy Spirit would give them understanding. That set the scene for chapter 53. The matter is also covered in more detail in the paper The Significance of the Term Son of God (No. 211).

 

The Jews have continually made a burden of the Sabbath and made the Laws of God of no effect with their traditions. They do this to this day but even more so, and they sin continually in their traditions and perversion of the laws of God. They level the same charges today at Christ as they did when he was prophesying to them and judging them, as he was sent to do by God.

 

Simmons then follows on to suggest:

“From where did these mistranslations stem? St. Gregory, 4th century Bishop of Nazianzus, wrote: ‘A little jargon is all that is necessary to impose on the people. The less they comprehend, the more they admire.’"

What nonsense. The ravings of an original Trinitarian opportunist at the end of the fourth century is hardly surprising but to suggest that he influenced the four centuries of preceding Christianity is an insult to one’s intelligence. This sort of rabbinical nonsense was as much to blame for the rise of Islam as was the Trinitarianism that was established from 381-451 CE.

 

R. Shraga Simmons had this to say on Torah observance:

“The Messiah will lead the Jewish people to full Torah observance. The Torah states that all mitzvot (commandments) remain binding forever, and anyone coming to change the Torah is immediately identified as a false prophet. (Deut. 13:1-4)

 

Throughout the New Testament, Jesus contradicts the Torah and states that its commandments are no longer applicable. (see John 1:45 and 9:16, Acts 3:22 and 7:37)  For example, John 9:14 records that Jesus made a paste in violation of Shabbat, which caused the Pharisees to say (verse 16), ‘He does not observe Shabbat!’"

 

Now this man has either not read the statements of Christ and the apostles in the NT or he is deliberately misrepresenting the texts. He appears to be supporting the Gnostic assertions regarding the writings of Paul and the Law and using them because it suits him. The Messiah is to bring salvation to the Gentiles and the Jews want to hold him to Judah.

 

Christ stated clearly twice: “Till heaven and earth pass away not one jot or tittle (i.e. dot or comma) will pass from the law, until all is accomplished (cf. Mat. 5: 17,18; Lk. 16:17). He castigated the Pharisees for having the law given to Moses but they did not keep the law (Jn. 7:19:24). They are condemned by their traditions and there is no light in them (Isa. 8:20) (see the papers The Acts 15 Conference (No. 69)  and PAUL: Part I Paul and the Law (No. 271)).

 

Jews argue that the Hebrew texts must be read in the original and that many are mistranslated in referring to Christ.

 

Isaiah 7:14 is often given as an example. It refers to a virgin giving birth and the refutation is made as follows:

“The Christian idea of a virgin birth is derived from the verse in Isaiah 7:14 describing an ‘alma’ as giving birth. The word ‘alma’ has always meant a young woman, but Christian theologians came centuries later and translated it as ‘virgin.’ This accords Jesus’ birth with the first century pagan idea of mortals being impregnated by gods.” (Simmons, ibid.)

 

The problem is that there are two words used in relation to a virgin in the Hebrew texts. The first is bethuwlah (SHD 1330) meaning to separate meaning a virgin from her privacy, and sometimes a bride also figuratively a city or state; hence a maid or virgin.

 

This word (SHD 1330) is used in every case referring to a virgin in the Hebrew in the sense of maid or bride or virgin or virgins with the exception of four instances where the word (SHD 5959) “alma” (sic) is used. One of these is in Genesis 24:43 when it is referring to the instance of the revelation of Rebekah being revealed as the wife of Isaac to Abraham’s steward and the text is specific that she is a virgin. It has a spiritual meaning for the elect of God. The next references are in the Song of Songs at Song 1:3; and 6:8 which refer specifically to the spiritual virgins that love the Messiah (see the paper Song of Songs No. (145)). The text is recognised by many rabbis as a Messianic text. On both occasions it is in the plural and is applied to the love of the virgins in the texts.

 

The next text is in Isaiah 7:14. This refers to the mother of the Messiah. The symbolism in the first case refers to the virginity of the mother of the physical sons of Isaac as the inheritance of Messiah and the text in Isaiah refers to the Mother of the Messiah as listed in prophecy. The uses in the Song of Songs are in reference to the elect in relation to the Messiah. The word is also translated as “maid” in Exodus 2:8 where the term is applied to Miriam, sister of Moses who was a virgin but also a prophetess of Israel in Levi. In each case it has the import of setting the elect or consecrated of God apart for their task in the salvation of man by faith. There are a number of other words used for maiden/s etc. but this one word (SHD 5959) is rare. It is used 5 times in this context, and is only ever used to develop the concept of the spiritual aspect of virginity as well as its physical aspect. This depiction by the Jews is false and is in fact anti-Messianic to disguise its implications.

 

The people embracing Judaism make the assertion that Judaism is the only religion based on the direct revelation by God to the entire nation. Judaism is not based on the Laws of God and the direct revelation of God to the nation of Israel. It is in fact a direct perversion of virtually everything God told Israel to do.

 

The very being (Christ) that spoke to the patriarchs and gave Israel the law at Sinai was sent by God to assume human form. He returned to God and was placed in the womb of a selected Jewess of the House of David. He spoke with Judah and the Levites there as well as the Canaanites and Edomites and Phoenicians among them. The majority not only did not listen to him, they also killed him, and then after being given 40 years to the month to repent refused to do so. They killed his brother seven years before the Temple was destroyed, and they were finally sent in to captivity, as it was prophesied by Daniel and they did not understand what they did. However enough of them, Levites included, formed the Church of God, which will serve Him forever.

 

Judah and the remnant of Levi and other tribes among them were given two witnesses in John the Baptist and Christ.  The brother of Christ who was also of the same blood and was a direct descendant of David of Judah and of Levi remained at his post as witness to Judah and Jerusalem for 33 years. In accordance with Daniel 9:25, at the end of the 69th week of years, he was cut off but not for himself. Then the church, after the death of Clophas, husband of Maria, sister of Mariam, fled to Pella under Simeon, son of Clophas. He was the cousin of Christ.

 

Judah was then destroyed and the Temple levelled to the ground. From there the rabbis emerged in control and they developed from the Pharisees, who were their predecessors. Judaism emerged and became twice the child of the demons that the Pharisees had made it beforehand.

 

The assertion that Christianity contradicts Jewish theology is correct. Jewish theology contradicts the Law of God. However, for a Jew to assert that Trinitarianism or Binitarianism or Ditheism is Christianity is simply borne out of ignorance of the Bible and the Church of God. Trinitarian Antinomianism is not Christianity any more than Judaism was the religion practised under Moses and the Prophets.

 

Judaism is heresy because:

1.      It makes no admittance of the plurality and distinction between Eloah and the sons of God who are elohim.

 

2.      It has introduced the Babylonian calendar with its heretical intercalations and the postponements by tradition into the Calendar and misleads all people seeking genuinely to follow God. It virtually never keeps a feast or Holy Day on the correct days and most of the time not even in the correct month. It has abandoned the New Moons to achieve this false calendar.

 

3.      It renders the Law of God of no effect by its traditions.

 

The Jewish claims that Christians argue that man is God is a misunderstanding of the Bible texts.

 

Zechariah 12:8 clearly states that man shall become elohim. There is no doubt that the destiny of us all is to become elohim (see the paper The Elect as Elohim (No. 001)).

 

There is distinct plurality to the elohim but there is only one true God Eloah. The elohim are an extended being where the one true God Eloah is extending Himself to include all of the Host, both spiritual and physical, when they become spirits. He is Ha Elohim. They are all elohim as the plurality that Eloah has become as Ha Elohim with many sons of God from the beginning of the Spiritual creation. The rabbis simply do not understand their own Bible texts.

 

The fact is that God and Christ are one (Jn 10:30) as we all are one, and as elohim, on the resurrections. They did not understand it then and they do not understand it now. One day very soon the scales will be removed from their eyes and they will repent and be saved.

 

They do not understand that it was the elohim that was at Sinai and who appeared to Israel and gave them the law, who came to them in the form of Jesus Christ. He was the being that appeared and even wrestled with the patriarchs.

 

The Torah says: "God is not a mortal (man), neither the son of man that he should repent” (Num. 23:19a). The Jews use the first section of this half text to try to destroy the Trinitarian argument but ignore the reference to the Son of Man which shows that the Son of Man as identified in Christ is distinct from the One True God.  His repentance or regret was for the sins of the world and hence this was an early prophecy of the role of Messiah as outlined in Isaiah 53 and elsewhere.

 

Judaism says that the Messiah will be born of human parents, and possess normal physical attributes like other people. He will not be a demi-god, and will not possess supernatural qualities. In fact, an individual is alive in every generation with the capacity to step into the role of the Messiah (see Maimonides - Laws of Kings 11:3).

 

Judaism deliberately misconstrues Roman Catholic error over prayers to intermediaries, contrary to Christ’s specific instructions. Christ’s statement that no man comes to the Father except by him, meaning in baptism and mediation for sin through his death and resurrection, is ignored in its intent as are his specific instructions that prayer is to be to the Father in the name of Christ.

 

It is true that prayer is a private matter between the person and God. God is near to those who call unto Him (Ps. 145:18). The assertion that the First Commandment that states: “You shall have no other gods before me” means it is forbidden to set up a mediator between God and man misunderstands the notion of what a mediator means in the NT, and is directed at the heresy of the Roman Catholic Church which encourages prayer to intermediaries of various forms, which is specifically against Christ’s instruction regarding prayer.

 

The Roman Catholic aberrations of Mariolatry and celibacy are against the direct exhortations of the Bible, and it is superfluous to deal with their straw man arguments against Catholicism as representative of Christianity, which it is not.

 

The False Messiah in the Last Days

It is clear that two figures are mentioned in the Bible texts as appearing on the world scene at the Last Days. These two figures are the False Prophet that works with the Beast so that men should receive its mark (Rev. 19:20) and from his mouth, and the mouth of the Dragon and the mouth of the Beast three foul spirits like frogs go forth to deceive and assemble the kings of the earth to the great battle of Armageddon (Rev. 16:13-16). The being termed the man of lawlessness (sometimes referred to by some sections as the antichrist) is developed in 2Thessalonians chapter 2. The coming of Christ is preceded by the establishment of the man of lawlessness, who is termed the son of perdition. This being opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and every object of worship. He takes his seat in the Temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God (v. 4).

 

There are only two alternatives to this text. One is that a Physical Temple will be built; the other is that the man comes out of the Church of God.  The probability is that we will be looking at the false prophet operating from Jerusalem and also the head of the Beast power, which may or not be the same person. There will certainly be a spokesperson for the Beast power. The structure of the False Prophet with the world religion will attempt to classify the Church of God expanding in the Last Days before the Messiah as the Church of the Antichrist. That is based on the fact that the church holds to the Laws of God and does not deny the Christ. Christ will come to save these people.

 

The Beast power will at first use the Roman Catholic Church that is to attempt to ride it this one last time.  However, it will expand beyond it and destroy it as prophesied in Revelation chapter 18. The War of the Last Days will destroy Rome and finally the Last Pope, which they will claim as Peter the Roman and probably name him Pius XIII. He will leave Rome over the bodies of his priests. His rule will be over the complete demise and eradication of the consolidated Trinitarian Church (see also the paper The Last Pope (No. 288)).

 

All these things will happen over the time frame of these last days between 2010 and the final restoration of 2025, and the treble harvest for the Jubilee in 2027 and the Millennium in 2028. From this time onwards the Temple will be rebuilt by the true Messiah and the Laws of God will be enforced.

 

The False Prophet/Man of Sin will be opposed by two biblical figures known as the Two Witnesses (Rev. 11:2ff; see the paper The Witnesses (including the Two Witnesses) (No. 135)).

 

It is obvious that, to get the world to accept the New Temple, the False Messiah will have to deceive the larger part of Israel both Spiritual and Physical. This individual then sits in the Temple declaring himself to be God.

 

The False Messiah or False Prophet will work with the Red Dragon and the demons of the Beast system to bring all men down to Armageddon. This activity will occur between next Passover and the coming of the True Messiah. After the Euphrates is dried up and the power there is destroyed the Kings of the East will come down to Megiddo. That event, however, includes the Northern powers after they destroy the king of the South and then those of the North East. After the Northern powers are destroyed then the kings of the East are brought down to Meggido. We will explain the timing of that phase in a later work.

 

Selection of the Prince

The second step in the sequence was to select the Nasi or prince of Judah. This process was commenced after they commenced to rebuild the Hurva in 2001. The writer was informed by those involved that the Nasi would be selected at the meeting in 2005. One of the major contenders was to be the House of Dayan. Another house was that of Salathiel. A big problem occurred when the DNA testing was undertaken and it was found that the people tested from these houses were found not to be Jews. They were Hg. R Hittite/Celts (see the paper The Genetic Origin of the Nations (No. 265)). There is a major problem in that northern Hittite DNA is in the major clans of the royal house of Judah. This is examined in the paper titled Hittites in the House of David (No. 67C). The process of selection is underway and it will be announced soon and anytime after the New Year following on from the completion of the Hurva Synagogue Mk. III.

 

How is the matter made to occur?

How then do Jews intend to relate to the Gentiles and get them to accept their false Messiah and “convert” to the so-called basic tenets of the Bible?

 

The answer is simple and they have already made this assertion to the world in the form of the so-called “Seven Noahide Laws”. The so-called Noahide laws are a clear attempt to do away with the Laws of God in the nations. This is the underpinning of the mystery of Iniquity.

 

They hold that:

“Judaism does not demand that everyone convert to the religion. The Torah of Moses is a truth for all humanity, whether Jewish or not. King Solomon asked God to heed the prayers of non-Jews who come to the Holy Temple (Kings I 8:41-43). The prophet Isaiah refers to the Temple as a "House for all nations."

 

The Temple service during Sukkot featured 70 bull offerings, corresponding to the 70 nations of the world. The Talmud says that if the Romans would have realized how much benefit they were getting from the Temple, they’d never have destroyed it.

 

Jews have never actively sought converts to Judaism because the Torah prescribes a righteous path for gentiles to follow, known as the "Seven Laws of Noah." Maimonides explains that any human being who faithfully observes these basic moral laws earns a proper place in heaven.”  (Simmons, ibid.)

 

The Seven Laws of Noah

The so-called Seven Laws of Noah are:

1.      Sexual transgression; (including its many forms);

2.      Murder;

3.      Theft;

4.      Idolatry;

5.      Blasphemy (Cursing the Name);

6.      Eating the limb of a living animal;

7.      The requirement for just laws within a society.

 

These seven laws are spurious nonsense in that no such system was ever in place from Noah, and the Patriarchs were far more advanced and law abiding than this devious ruse of rabbinical Judaism would have us believe. Noah took on the ark seven pairs of every clean animal and one pair of unclean. The Foodlaws were in place from the Creation (see the paper The Foodlaws (No. 15) and also the paper Vegetarianism and the Bible (No. 183)). So also was the understanding of the creation and the calendar in its entirety. Josephus records that the two pillars of stone and brick explaining the calendar were erected by Seth, and the pillar of stone recording the erection of both pillars was still in place in Siriad (Syria) in his day (Josephus, A. of J.,  Bk. 1; 2.3).

 

The law of Idolatry is so obscure as to be designed to obscure the second commandment, as is the custom among Catholics, so as to appeal to the idea that it is acceptable to make idols to pray to as long as they are of “Mary” or called intermediary saints.

 

They then assert that the systems of Justice of the Gentile nations are up to them as long as they keep to the lines of the Seven Noachide or Noahide Laws. They are then assured of earning a “place in heaven” which is a pagan concept totally contrary to original Christianity and to the Bible.

 

God has said, through his servants the prophets, that the entire calendar – of Sabbaths, New Moons and Feasts – is to be kept by all nations in the Millennial Restoration of the Messiah and the nations will die if they do not keep it (Isa. 66:23; Zech. 14:16-19).

 

This Noahide Laws’ deception is then advanced as fact, and even the congress of the US has endorsed them because it suits the Trinitarians to do so thinking that they are on fairly safe grounds. Even the Irish parliament has passed a meaningless and unenforceable law on blasphemy. Their constitution is a Trinitarian document and requires the Trinity, being orchestrated by the Roman Catholics in 1937.

 

The Law stood from Adam and was observed by the Patriarchs and was reissued in full to Moses at Sinai by Jesus Christ who was with them in the wilderness (1Cor. 10:4).

 

See the following text.
The Seven Laws of Noah

 

The following is the Jewish common view on the coming of the Messiah:

 

They note that Maimonides held that Christianity and Islam are part of God’s plan to spread the ideals of Torah throughout the world, moving society to a perfected state. All of that is held to be in preparation for a Messianic Age which they hold is to come (as the Bible states), and they deny the return of a Messiah they hold has never come.

 

Simmons says:

“Indeed, the world is in desperate need of Messianic redemption. War and pollution threaten our planet; ego and confusion erode family life. To the extent we are aware of the problems of society, is the extent we will yearn for redemption. As the Talmud says, one of the first questions a Jew is asked on Judgment Day is: ‘Did you yearn for the arrival of the Messiah?’

 

How can we hasten the coming of the Messiah? The best way is to love all humanity generously, to keep the mitzvot of the Torah (as best we can), and to encourage others to do so as well.

 

Despite the gloom, the world does seem headed toward redemption. One apparent sign is that the Jewish people have returned to the Land of Israel and made it bloom again. Additionally, a major movement is afoot of young Jews returning to Torah tradition.

 

The Messiah can come at any moment, and it all depends on our actions. God is ready when we are. For as King David says: "Redemption will come today—if you hearken to His voice."

(cf. R. Shraga Simmons Largely adapted from Aish.com)

 

Note the comments are towards Torah tradition. From the 1st day of Abib this year in 2010, after the completion of the Hurva synagogue in Jerusalem, an attempt will be made to establish the Temple on the Mount in Zion. To do that a false Messiah will be announced in the near future. He will be a charismatic leader and false prophet that will interact with the New World Order.

 

From before December of 2010 a religious revival will occur and the situation will deteriorate. Within a short period of time we will see all-out war, and the occupation of Gaza from the sea going up to include Jerusalem by the forces of the King of the North under an “Antichrist” figure.

 

The Empire of the Beast will be established from the treaties established from the Copenhagen discussions on 2 December 2009. Agreements will be signed by July of 2010 leading up to the orchestrated financial collapse and the New World Order will assume world power. WWIII will now escalate and nearly destroy the world.

 

[Note: The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) convened the 3rd World Conference of Speakers of Parliament from 19 to 21 July. The broad theme for the 2010 Conference was Parliaments in a world of crisis: securing global democratic accountability for the common good. See full report at

This false system will deceive if it were possible even the very elect.

 

It will have a false messiah in Jerusalem that keeps a false calendar with the Babylonian intercalations and the oral traditions. It will deny the Christ that saved us all.

 

The Churches of God that were deceived under the Idol Shepherd and corrupted by Ditheism and the Hillel Calendar will be unable to stand. Only the Philadelphians as a group will withstand it. They will not deny his name (Rev. 3:8). Many of Sardis and Laodicea will be overcome because they have been corrupted already by these doctrines and that of Ditheism and many will fall.

 

Right now many are falling by the wayside and some are actually becoming Jews and deny the Christ that saved them. They are waiting, ready to be seduced by this false messiah. There are concentrations of them in the US where the cult of the personality has destroyed the Churches of God already.

 

Time is short. There is much work to do.

 

Come out of your holes you who are wounded and tired. There is a major last battle to be fought.
