The Truth is The True Gospel Message of the coming Kingdom of God and Salvation under His Glorious Grace and KNOWING The Duality Godhead of The Father and The Son – The ONLY Godhead. And always remember that The Truth (Yashua Messiah) is the enemy of The State. Below is the Lion of Judah (not the Jews). Please scroll down for the selected article.
OK, so here we go again with yet another controversial subject, well it’s controversial for some, but not for those well founded in Faith in Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ), because hopefully they will have entered into His Eternal Sabbath Rest.
So what makes it controversial for some? Easy, their continued desire for living under The Law and stubbornly refusing to live under Yashua Messiah’s Glorious Grace. They are like those Israelites who became embittered and fell in the wilderness. They began their rebellion when ten of the Israelite spies came back with a faithless negative spineless report to Moses, claiming that it was an impossible task for the Israelites to overcome in order for them to enter into the Promised Land and to defeat the Canaanite occupants = they hardened their hearts and THEY FAILED TO ENTER THROUGH UNBELIEF!!
Hebrews 3:15 (KJV) While it is said, To day if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
These rebellious Israelites hardened their hearts towards God and so, too, do these modern day GRACELESS Commandment obeying Pharisees and Judaisers, thinking that they can enter The Kingdom of God by striving to OBEY The Ten Commandments which, of course, includes regulated Sabbath keeping. If they slip up and fail here and there with their obedience endeavours, not to worry, ‘cos God knows how hard they’re struggling to OBEY, and He will always be merciful towards them – at least that’s what they erroneously think. (See link No.s 1 and 2 below). Moreover, this means, metaphorically, they want to remain in Egypt with their garlic, cucumbers and melons, whilst delusionally thinking that they will enter The Kingdom of God in the resurrection – the Eternal Promised Land.
Hebrews 3:16-19 (MCV) For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17 But with whom was He grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware He that they should not enter into His Rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
Now have YOU made the same catastrophic error by refusing to enter into His Eternal Sabbath Rest from YOUR WORKS!!?? Or do YOU continue in trying to EARN YOUR SALVATION through OBEDIENCE TO THE LAW – The Ten Commandments!? (See link No. 4 below).
Hebrews 4:1 (MCV) Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into His Eternal Rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
Have YOU come short of it by refusing to live FULLY under His Glorious SAVING Grace?
Hebrews 4:2 (MCV) For unto us was The Kingdom Gospel preached, as well as unto them: but The Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with Faith in them that heard it.
The Word preached DID NOT PROFIT THEM! Why did it not profit them? because they wanted to remain faithless under the curse of The Law:
Galatians 3:13 (KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of The Law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
So listen up all you regulated Sabbath keepers out there, whether it be Saturday or Sunday Sabbaths, (see link No. 1 below) and examine yourselves through the power of the Holy Spirit, and ask yourselves this question: Is this TRUTH registering deep within me, and are your hearts pricked? I do hope so, for any form of Commandment obeying is a trampling all over Yashua Messiah’s sacrifice. I jest not when I say that it is that serious and your eternal future RESTS upon it (pun intended). (See link No. 2 below)
Hebrews 4:3 (MCV) For we which have believed do enter into rest, as He said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
A better interpretation from The Living Bible:
Hebrews 4:3 (TLB) For only we who believe God can enter into HIS PLACE OF REST. He has said, “I have sworn in my anger that those who don’t believe me will never get in,” even though He has been ready and waiting for them since the world began.
Here we have explained to us that only through BELIEF and FAITH and TRUST in Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) FOR EVERYTHING! can we enter into His Eternal Sabbath Rest. So what the author is telling us is that once we’re Called and Chosen, Baptised and gifted with The Holy Spirit, THAT’S IT!!! we have entered into His Eternal Sabbath Rest, our names are written in The Book of Life and EVERY DAY IS NOW A SABBATH DAY! This means, in the modern vernacular, that if you want a day off from your labours or even a few days off, then take ‘em, and if you want to make one Holy to The Lord Yashua Messiah then do so, but DON’T make in binding on yourself, or on others.
Here on in from The Amplified Bible:
Hebrews 4:4-7 (TAB) For somewhere [in Scripture] He has said this about the seventh day: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; 5 and again in this, “They shall not enter My rest.” 6 Therefore, since the promise remains for some to enter His rest, and those who formerly had The Good News preached to them failed to [grasp it and did not] enter because of [their unbelief evidenced by] disobedience, 7 He again sets a definite day, [a new] “Today,” [providing another opportunity to enter that rest by] saying through David after so long a time, just as has been said before [in the words already quoted], “Today if you hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.”
But what do the 21st century Pharisees do? Answer: they do exactly that, they harden their hearts and crawl back under the bondage of The Law, and by doing so fail to enter into His Eternal Sabbath Rest, and at the same time kill His Glorious Saving Grace for themselves – hence I call ‘em Grace Killers – how wretched can that be?
Hebrews 4:8-9 (TAB) [This mention of a rest was not a reference to their entering into Canaan.] For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not speak about another day [of opportunity] after that. 9 So there remains a [full and complete] Sabbath rest for the people of God.
There it is folks: A FULL AND COMPLETE SABBATH REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD. How plain and simple is that? The wondrous simplicity that is in Christ – 2 Corinthians 11:3.
Hebrews 4:10 (TAB) For the one who has once entered His rest has also rested from [the weariness and pain of] his [human] labors, just as God rested from [those labors uniquely] His own. 11 Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], so that no one will fall by following the same example of disobedience [as those who died in the wilderness].
So there we have it dear regulated Sabbath keepers, for I know from personal experience that many of you are devout and sincere people, especially SDAs (Seventh Day Adventists) and the people of the Worldwide Church of God splinter groups, but repentance is the only way forward for you and to shake off that curse of The Law.
In Yashua Messiah’s Holy name
1. Should Christians Keep The Old Covenant Commandments?:
2. When Did The Biblical Word ‘KEEP’ Become ‘OBEY’?:
3. Saturday Sabbath or Sunday Sabbath – Which One Should We Be Observing?:
4. Do Born of God Christians Have to Obey or Learn Obedience?:
This article could and perhaps should have been entitled: When Christians Die, Do They Instantly “Go To Be With The Lord”? – Part 3, (see link below for parts 1 & 2), but that, to some degree, would be missing the point. The question of whether this passage of Holy Scripture proves or does not prove that we ‘go to be with The Lord’ when we die is really only a side issue. Yashua Messiah’s (The Lord Jesus Christ’s) intended theme and Spiritual thrust of this story has a different purpose altogether. Needless to say, this theme is totally missed or ignored by the Bible ‘experts’. Moreover, this parable is so well known, and so much discussed, it had to be used as the title of this article. You will therefore notice that I have deliberately referred to this passage of Holy Scripture as a Prophetic Parable, for that is what it is.
Now calling it a Prophetic Parable will upset many in the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion (mainstream Christianity), because it is one of their ‘golden nugget’ sections of the New Testament, which they misuse. This is because they use it to support their mythical ideas that they: 1) instantaneously ‘Go to be with the Lord’ when they die, that is, they go straight to heaven when they die (yet another lie) and 2) ‘sinners’ go straight to a fiery hell; otherwise known as Purgatory by deluded ignorant Papists.
However, unfortunately for them, the parable of Lazarus and the rich man is just that – a parable, and not a factual literal description of what happens when we die. It’s a Spiritual analogy, as are all of Yashua Messiah’s (the Lord Jesus Christ’s) parables.
The Parable of Lazarus and The Rich Man
The Prophetic Parable
Luke 16:19 (KJV) There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. 27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: 28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. (All emphasis mine)
Some interesting points before I move on. This parable can only be found in Luke’s Gospel and Lazarus is named, but the rich man remains anonymous. And don’t forget that it is mostly prophetic – for the future, that is, the near future, post Yashua Messiah’s death and resurrection and the distant future at Yashua Messiah’s second coming – both events are involved in this parable.
So how do we know this story is a parable? Easy, the opening verse tells us straight away, because Yashua Messiah makes special reference to the colour of the rich man’s robes – PURPLE. Now this may seem, at first glance, all very trivial and insignificant, but nothing could be further from The Truth. Purple raiment is always synonymous with God, royalty, the priesthood and the counterfeit priesthood of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion:
Two Fake Christians With One in Purple, and Wearing a Heathen Dagon Fish Hat
Exodus 26:1 (KJV) Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them.
Numbers 4:13 (KJV) And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple cloth thereon:
John 19:5 (KJV) Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
Revelation 17:4 (KJV) And the woman (the mother of harlots) was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.
In these four Scriptures we can see various connotations associated with purple cloth, but they have some things in common: God, Royalty, the Priesthood, and the counterfeit priesthood in Revelation 17. So, this rich man, dressed in fine purple linen, is symbolically a priest or a representative of the counterfeit priesthood and/or The Sanhedrin as it was known in the first century.
Now this parable is another of those parables that Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) frequently used in order to attack the hypocrisy of the Jewish Pharisee and Sadducee religious leaders. There they were, all dressed up for the part, but in reality they were “whited sepulchres” or “whited walls”, cold, ruthless and hollow and empty within – lacking any love or Spiritual substance. They were Spiritually dead with “throats like open graves”. Notice, too, this man lived it up everyday, well he was loaded with money and therefore a lover of filthy lucre, as were the Pharisee Jews, so why not eat, drink and be merry, eh?
Moving on, and as always, keeping it in the Spiritual dimension, we then have poor Lazarus who represents all those who are desirous and hungry, nay starving, for lack of Spiritual food, for lack of even just a few crumbs of Spiritual Truth and/or the Word of God. In the early first century that meant Moses and The Prophets, but in the prophetic future sense it is highlighting Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ) and His glorious message taught by His Messengers, that is, The Good News of Grace, Salvation and Eternal Life in the coming Kingdom of God.
On top of this poor Lazarus’ malnourished Spiritual condition is compounded by the trials of this life – his sores. As a Spiritual babe he is even tormented and spiritually attacked by dogs or spiritual prostitutes – or those of the circumcision, as described by Paul in Galatians – legalists and Grace killers.
Philippians 3:2 (MCV) Beware of Judaising mongrel dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the circumcision.
In Strong’s Concordance the Old Testament definition for ‘dogs’ is male prostitutes – sodomites:
Dog – H3611 – keleb – keh’-leb – From an unused root meaning to yelp, or else to attack; a dog; hence (by euphemism) a male prostitute: – dog.
Have you yet noticed the picture that is developing here? no man, unless he is being drawn to The Son by The Father, can be desirous for Spiritual food, so this means Lazarus represents those The Father is calling and has chosen! Notice, too, how we also have purplegarments and spiritual prostitution in association – one with the other – the the purple robed dogs of the meaningless, vain Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.
The next thing we must understand is that Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ), on numerous occasions said The Kingdom of God is at hand. What did He mean by that turn of phrase? Quite simply, He was referring to a time in the very near future or the time directly after His death and resurrection when Salvation would be made available to all those The Father would be calling and choosing through hearing the Messenger’s (apostles’) preaching.
Now keeping this Truth in mind we now continue with the parable, and next we have the death of Lazarus, here called a beggar, which means he is hungering and thirsting after mercy and righteousness plus justice and justification:
Matthew 5:6 (KJV) Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Notice here, too, that Lazarus is desirous to be fed the Spiritual scraps, not to mention the literal scraps of food, that fell from this selfish self-indulgent purple clothed minister’s table.
OK, so now we have Lazarus crying out for The Word of God – The Good News of The Kingdom, salvation and righteousness (justice and justification). However, what happens? he dies, but what kind of death is Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) really referring to here, apart from a physical death?
Lazarus’ death here is symbolic of the watery grave of Baptism – the old Lazarus dies and then what happens – he is lifted up by the angels into Abraham’s bosom and his name is written in the Book of Life. This means he is lifted up a new man – born of God (born again) into Abraham’s bosom. How does that work? Who and what does Abraham represent? Easy, he represents faith and the faithful – he is the elder of the faithful and the man that the men dressed in purple fine linen thought they were descended from, and were supposed to represent, that is, the Spirit of The Law, not the letter of The Law.
Don’t forget, too, this message is being delivered by Yashua Messiah under the Old Covenant and Abraham’s Bosom is a forerunner or type of the Kingdom of God to be ruled by Yashua Messiah. Please note, Lazarus’ physical death, as with all those who are born of God (born again), has no hold over him, as his place in the Kingdom of God at Yashua Messiah’s return is assured. Make sure you understand that there is no resurrection of the dead for ANYONE until Yashua Messiah returns, and that includes Enoch and Elijah. (Future articles on this pesky subject coming soon)
1 Corinthians 15:36 (KJV) Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
Colossians 2:12 (KJV) Buried with Him in Baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through the Faith (Abraham’s Bosom) of the operation of God, who hath raised Him from the dead.
Romans 6:4 (KJV) Therefore we are buried with Him by Baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by The Glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (All emphasis and brackets mine)
Now, notice, Lazarus is comforted in Abraham’s bosom and in the not too distant future, after The Lord’s death and resurrection, those called and chosen would also be comforted just like Lazarus. Comforted by whom? why, by Yashua Messiah of course. This proves that Yashua Messiah is using Abraham’s bosom here as a type for Himself in His Kingdom.
John 14:18 (KJV) I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
In part two I will explain the meanings of the tormented sufferings or ordeals of the rich man.
The Parable Of Lazarus And The Rich Man – Part 2.
The Explanation continued
Now what of the rich man? He dies and is buried and comes to a place called hell. How does this work? because we know that the dead are dead and know nothing? (Please see link below to my article “Are Christians going to heaven?”) Yet this rich man is conscious and can see Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom and Abraham, too, is alive and can see him. So what is this all about and at what point in time is all this taking place?
First of all, it’s all about mental and spiritual torment, not physical torment. Secondly, the time is just after that time when the rich man, (representative of the Jews and counterfeit religious priesthood), will have been resurrected with all those who were called and chosen. This is the time of the return of Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) to this earth and the First Resurrection. The rich man is like the five foolish virgins who ran out of oil. Here though, The Lord has taken the scenario one step further and placed the rich man in a metaphorical place of torment. This ‘hell’ is a point in time in the future where all the unrepentant men in purple robes will realise it’s too late, like the unwise virgins who discovered their purchased oil was useless. If we refer to the end of that parable, the unwise virgins are not allowed into the wedding feast and Yashua Messiah informs them that He does not know them even though they were given oil (Grace) in the first place. In this instance Yashua Messiah does not elaborate on their reaction to this horrendous news.
However, in this parable, we are told about the rich man’s ordeals and/or his reaction to the news that he has been excluded from the Kingdom of God – Abraham’s bosom – Salvation. He, like the unwise virgins at the beginning, was given oil – Grace or here referred to as the ‘good things’ – the Spiritual Law of Moses and the Prophets – The Gracious gifts of God to the priesthood. This rich man, like modern mainstream Christian ministers of The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, had all the benefits the knowledge of God can bestow upon a man. His, (the rich man) and their wickedness, has resulted in the Children of God, that is, those they were, and are, responsible for, and supposed to look after (shepherd) were/are starving through lack of Spiritual food. So here he is, as a result, in wretched mental torment for his just reward:
Matthew 8:11 (KJV) And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven (God). 12 But the children of the kingdomshall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Wretched fearful mental torment and/or emotional ordeals).
Luke 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all The Prophets, in the Kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. (Wretched fearful mental torment and/or emotional ordeals).
Make no mistake, this rich man represents a “child of the kingdom” as are all those who are called into the ministry, but many run out of oil – Grace, and turn to religious form and legalism as a blasphemous replacement. Turning or making The Word of God to none effect. This parable was given as a warning to them and, notice, they understood The Lord’s parables so were, without excuse.
Luke 16:14 (KJV) And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
Now in order to respond in this way, these men must have understood what Yashua Messiah was talking about. Only the Learners (disciples), after The Lord had explained to them the meaning, were privy to this understanding, that is, apart from these satanic men of religion.
Moreover, we now move on to where the rich man, in his ‘burning tormented’ condition catches sight of Abraham with Lazarus in his bosom and he cries out, but what is he crying out for? Just a drop of water from the tip of Lazarus’ finger. The thing is, if the rich man is in a real burning cauldron how is a drop of water on the end of Lazarus’ finger going to bring him any relief, how will it quench his thirst? Well, quite plainly it won’t, so what does this water represent? Again we return to the Spiritual Truth of Yashua Messiah:
Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life
John 4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
Wow!! I think this is one of the most emotional and uplifting passages of Holy Scripture in The Bible. Here we can see the amazing God given wisdom of the woman, by the well, who longed to have her thirst quenched, once and for all time, by The Lord’s metaphorical Holy Spiritual water. Indeed, we can now see the water the rich man was crying out and pleading for, in a new Light. He knew what kind of water would be on Lazarus’ finger tipand he also knew that just one single drop would be enough to rescue him from his mental anguish and torment – a well of water springing up into everlasting life and him, being comforted by Yashua Messiah (Abraham’s bosom) in The Kingdom of God.
Furthermore, we then learn that there is a gulf between the rich man and Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom, a gulf that cannot be bridged from either direction. This gulf is the same gulf that denied the five unwise virgins a share of the oil from the five wise virgin’s lamps. This is a ‘never the twain shall meet’ situation. This situation can be likened to the sheep and goats, with one; the sheep on God’s right hand and the other; the goats, on His left – the sheep inherit and the goats do not. (see link below)
This is the future point in time that the rich man has reached and he vainly requests that Abraham send Lazarus from the dead to his five brethren who, again, remind us of the five unwise virgins. It was too late for them and it’s too late for the rich man’s brethren, the Grace has gone out of their lives.
We then get the killer verse. Verse 31 And He said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. Here in this verse Yashua Messiah is referring to Himself as the “one rose from the dead” and look at what He is saying. This verse not only covers the Jewish religious leaders of the first century, but brings us loud and clear into the last days which commenced on the first Pentecost AD 31. We are talking about so called men of God here, now in this age – ‘teachers’ and ‘preachers’, not the unsaved. Even though Yashua Messiah came and died to take all of mankind’s sins, was resurrected to give us new lives in Him or in ‘Abraham’s bosom’ and give us His glorious Grace, there are still those rich men who stand in their pulpits each week and ‘teach’ the same Pharisaical message against it – those men dressed in their fine purple linen – both metaphorically and/or literally!
Finally, and to end on a more positive note, we must also understand that the rich man’s punishment is only for a season – albeit a thousand year season, but eventually he will be part of the second resurrection as described in Revelation 20. The Father God does not remain angry forever, but vengeance is always His, and all the Lazarus’s of this world must be avenged.
“No one who has been martyred by the Jews should remain unknown. And no one who has been martyred by the Jews will remain unavenged.”
For those of you who have never of Tim Farron he was, up until today, the 14th June 2017, the leader of the British Liberal Democrat Party (and an alleged Christian), otherwise known as the Lib-Dems, which only managed to secure 12 seats in the recent British General Election on the 8th June 2017. This was an increase of only three seats on their previous General Election performance. In contrast the Stalinist Labour Party won 262 seats and the Trotskyist Conservative Party 318. So as you can see this was a very poor show indeed.
Moreover, Tim Farron, although professing to be a liberal was, in reality, just another leftie Bolshevik Marxist in a yellow tie – yellow being the official colour of the spineless treacherous Lib-Dem Party. However, in truth, he was no more a liberal, as in the traditional liberal sense, e.g. as with Lloyd George, than Josef Stalin.
He also claimed that he was a Christian, but what kind of a Christian? A real Christian or a fake Christian? Here is a statement he made when questioned by a Channel 4 leftie, useless media jobsworth, Cathy Newman, with this question:
Farron was asked whether he believed, as a Christian, that the act of homosexual sex (sodomy) was a sin and replied: “To understand Christianity is to understand that we are all sinners.” (Brackets mine)
I will repeat that: “To understand Christianity is to understand that we are all sinners.”
OK, so what does this statement really mean? The word ‘understand’ in the language of legalese means to “stand under” so what he is really saying is this: To stand under the banner of Christianity is also to stand under the banner of “I am a sinner and don’t you forget it!”
Now is he right? IF we are Christians, are we still sinners? IF as Christians, we are still sinners, how will we enter the The Kingdom of God or IF as Christians we are still sinners how will we obtain or enter into Eternal Life? Do these people ever question their erroneous understanding or their own skewed reasoning?
Perhaps a better question would be, who teaches these wretched people and fills their heads with this satanic nonsense? And make no mistake, for it is satanic nonsense. So back to the first part of his statement: “To understand or stand under the banner of Christianity.” Well does he? Obviously not because he thinks that if one understands HIS idea of Christianity then we are all still sinners – DOH!!
So here’s a question: IF after having become a Christian we’re still sinners – WHAT’S CHANGED!!?? I’ll tell you – NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAS CHANGED!! In contrast, are the lost and unsaved majority, sinners? Yes, of course but this Tim Farron character has declared himself to be a sinner too, so what has his alleged Christian faith achieved for him? I’ll tell you again – NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
Let’s be clear about this folks – a sinner is a sinner is a sinner and that’s all there is to it, nothing more, nothing less and no matter what else he calls himself. A sinner will die in his or her sins – that’s it – fini – kaput – gone. They will then be dead in their graves until the Second Resurrection and The Great White Throne Tribunal at the end of The Millennium and with no part in the First Resurrection when Yashua Messiah returns to this earth, VERY SOON for His elect – REAL CHRISTIANS!
However, and here is the rub, someone who claims to be a Christian and a sinner as well, that is, people like our Mr Tim Farron, fall into a special group of people that will receive some special attention from Yashua Messiah when he returns to this earth very soon. This special attention is otherwise known as outer darkness.
Matthew 25:30 (KJV) And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
So are you saying that Tim Farron is an unprofitable servant? Yes of course and by his own admission. Ask yourself, how can a sinner ever be profitable to Yashua Messiah? So called Christians who are still sinners or who still see themselves as sinners are neither one thing or the other. Do you SEE THAT dear people? I do hope so for your Holy Spiritual future and welfare is totally dependent upon you SEEING IT, and the last thing I want to see is your being cast into outer darkness, that is, separation from Yashua Messiah and for I don’t know how long. That cannot be a very pleasant experience no matter what the duration.
OK so by now you must be wondering what it is that Tim Farron is missing and it’s quite simple. He is missing the miracle that occurs at Baptism (full immersion) into Yashua Messiah’s (Jesus Christ’s) name alone. Now this may be because he has never been taught or worse he has been taught and then poo pooed the teaching. Either way, he is not properly birthed into Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ), for if he had been he would KNOW that as a Baptised born of God Christian, gifted with The Holy Spirit he would no longer be a sinner – end of.
This is explained to us by Yashua Messiah through John:
1 John 3:8 (KJV) He that committeth sin is of The Devil; for The Devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose The Son of God was manifested (made known), that He might destroy the works of The Devil. (Brackets mine)
Here we can plainly see, if we have the EYES to see that is, that anyone that commits sin is of The Devil. That’s it – simple and no argument!! Yet John says: “For this purpose The Son of God was manifested (made known), that He might destroy the works of The Devil.”
Right, here’s another question: Has The Son of God (Yashus Messiah), who I presume was made made known to Tim Farron, destroyed the works of The Devil in Tim Farron’s life? Answer: No of course not, because he still sees himself as a sinner and, worse, applies that same wretched condition to all his fellow erroneous fake Christians.
In turn this means that Yashua Messiah did nothing for Tim Farron at the stake (cross). He died and rose again thereby destroying the works of The Devil (death and sin) and yet Tim Farron (and those like him) is oblivious to this stupendous Truth.
Furthermore, and again, let’s be clear for Tim Farron, unfortunately, is not alone, and I exaggerate not an atom when I say that the bulk of those embroiled in the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion think exactly the same way as Tim Farron thinks.
I will therefore quote John once more in order to explain how born of God sons and daughters of God, properly Baptised and gifted with The Holy Spirit cannot sin:
1 John 3:3 (KJV) And every man that hath his hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.
Every man that keeps his hope in Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) PURIFIES HIMSELF even as Yashua Messiah is pure.
1 John 3:6 (KJV) Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.
Whosoever abides in Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) SINS NOT!! Whosoever sins (Tim Farron and those like him) has not seen Yashua Messiah (experienced His presence via The Holy Spirit) and has never known Him!
1 John 3:9 (KJV) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His Seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
Whosoever is born of God does not sin because His Seed (His Holy Spirit) remains in him and he cannot sin and he cannot sin because he is born of God. He is NOW a NEW CREATION residing in a DEAD BODY of sin.
Paul also makes it plain – TWICE!:
Romans 7:17 (KJV) NOW THEN IT IS NO MORE I THAT DO IT, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Romans 7:20 (KJV) Now if I do that I would not, IT IS NO MORE I THAT DO IT, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Paul makes it clear that it is no longer him that sins but, rather, the dead sin that dwells within his dead body of sin which is no longer him.
I hope and pray that you all STAND UNDER (understand) this miraculous Father and Son gifted and given arrangement.
Now many of you, that is, you my regular readers, will be familiar with the above expression, for I use it regularly in my articles to describe fake mainstream Christianity, or Churchianity, or the Christian RELIGION, or what some might call Christendom.
For those of you new to my work for Yashua Messiah (The Yahavah Yashua Messiah – the Lord Jesus Christ) I use it as an umbrella term to cover all the branches of so-called Christianity – Roman Catholicism; Eastern Orthodoxy (Greek and Russian); Anglicanism (AngliCAINism); Episcopalianism (American AngliCAINism), plus ALL the myriad denominations (divisions = demon-inations) of PROTESTantism.
This umbrella title also covers all the so called cults who, I might add, do not have a monopoly in cultism and/or cult behaviour. Roman Catholicism is the biggest cult of all, that is, a money making, money laundering cult based upon Simony (Simon Magus), with over a billion deluded and deceived adherents, and now controlled by the Rothschild Jew Beast Money Power Empire of Revelation.
However, having said that, I will now list the principal cult culprits, here, for your information: Jehovah’s Witnesses; The Church of The Latter Day Saints (The Mormons); The Seventh Day Adventists (SDAs); The Christadelphians; The Worldwide Church of God, (now deviously and deceptively known as The Grace Communion International), with all its splinter or spin-off groups who broke away after Herbert W. Armstrong’s era ended – Armstrong was a Judaising mongrel dog and possibly a CIA Asset.
OK, so here are the names of some of these satanic Judaising splinter groups:
Midnight Ministries – Malcom B. Heap
The Trumpet – The Philadelphia Church Of God – Gerald Flurry The Restored Church Of God The Living Church Of God The Intercontinental Church Of God The United Church Of God, An International Association The Church Of God’s Faithful The Independent Church Of God The Church Of God, An International Community The Christian Biblical Church Of God
The Continuing Church of God
I have listed the names of all these groups (and please note this list is not exhaustive) because I was once a duped member of the original Worldwide Church of God under Armstrong’s original satanic teaching, so I have a particular interest in what these satanic groups are getting up to in these last days of the last days. Needless-to-say, they are all blasphemous Judaisers and Grace killers, banging there OBEDIENCE based drums, earning their own salvation and extorting money from their duped members via their Old Covenant tithing money grabbing systems, so don’t, whatever you do, get involved with any of them.
OK, I think I have covered the bulk of what purports to be so called Christianity on the face of this satanic earth in 2017 and I call it The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.
If you know of any other major groups that claim to be Christian Churches that you think should be added to my list please let me know in the comments section below. Please note, I am aware of the Pentecostal groups and have included them as an integral of PROTESTantism.
Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV) Enter ye in at the strait (narrow) gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, (Spiritual ruin) and MANY there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Moving on, I will now take each of the four words that make up my umbrella title, and expound on their relevance and my reasons for placing them within the title, starting with:
Right, why do I group all these varied and supposed Christian bodies together under the title The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion? And why in particular do I use the term ‘Cainite’ as the first part of their description? What has Cain got to do with modern, so called, Christianity or nominal fake mainstream Christianity? He and his offspring died in The Flood didn’t they? Yes they did, but his bloodline was rekindled post-flood by and through the birth of Canaan, whom Noah cursed. However, I will not expound on that story here as I deal with it in my articles elsewhere here on my blog (see link No. 1 below), but what I will do is look specifically at Cain’s behaviour which led up to his murdering his half-brother Abel. (Take note, Cain and Abel were NOT full brothers) (again, see link No. 1 below)
Now this event is as much Spiritual as it is physical and literal, and it is timeless in its importance. The spirit of this story carries forward through 6,000 years of our history to our days here in 21st century. So what ties the murder of Abel to the year 2017? Easy, sacrifices and offerings or, perhaps, what I should have said is, the RIGHT KIND of sacrifice and offering. So let’s post the story of Cain and Abel’s sacrifices and offerings:
Genesis 4:3-4 (MCV) And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto The Yahavah. 4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And The Yahavah had respect unto Abel and acknowledged (was pleased with) his offering:
So what’s going on here? because on the face of it, it looks like The Yahavah is being unjust toward Cain just because his offering was from his crops of the ground. We are then told that The Yahavah had respect for Abel’s offering rather than Cain’s, so what gives?
BLOOD is what gives, that is, in Abel’s sacrifice, the BLOOD of a LAMB which spills into the ground. In Cain’s offering there was NO BLOOD at all, making it a useless offering, and thereby definitely not pleasing in The Yahavah’s sight as a sacrifice.
Yashua Messiah was The Lamb slain from before the foundation of the world as it is written in the Book of Revelation:
Revelation 13:8 (MCV) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (The Adversary), whose names are NOT written in The Book of Life of The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
This means, that in the past under the Old Covenant, right and proper sacrifices to Yah should ALWAYS involve the blood of a Lamb (even before the original Passover in Egypt) with Yashua Messiah becoming the ultimate Lamb of Yah sacrifice to end ALL blood sacrifices. (Watch out for the evil blasphemous re-instatement of animal blood sacrifices in Jerusalem soon – The Abomination of Desolation.)
OK, so back to the thread. From this event we then get Cain’s jealousy of his half-brother for having found favour in The Yahavah’s sight. The half-brothers then argue with the end result of Cain killing Abel in a fit of jealous rage.
Now mark this event, for it is a type or forerunner or the first of multiple thousands of murders that will follow it, that is, down through the ages and even into the 21st century with real Christians (followers of Yashua Messiah – The Truth and The Way) being slain for their Faith being in Him, and Him alone, with no RELIGION (no crops of the ground). So to sum up this first part, what we have graphically displayed for us here is the first hu-man creature of RELIGION, that is, CAIN, (he was The Adversary’s offspring – his son – see link No. 2 below) slaying the first man – a son of Adam, a True believer, who was making his blood of The Lamb sacrifice to his Creator.
Now this is all correct I here you say, that’s if you are of The Truth. However, how are you making a connection from Cain and Abel to the 21st century? Again that’s easy, fake or counterfeit Christians – those of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion who believe in a fake Jesus, who never spilled his blood. This is because he doesn’t exist, and so he never died. This fake Jesus is like Cain’s offering of vegetables – there’s no blood. Ask yourself, how does a make-believe fictional character bleed and die? It doesn’t and it can’t – it would be impossible for it to do so (see link No. 3 below).
Let’s be clear about this, and get it firmly seated in our minds, only Yashua Messiah (The Yahavah Yashua Messiah) died and shed His blood for us, not their Cainite vegetable growing Jesus. So now you know why I use the word Cainite in my title the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.
OK, so why do I use the word ‘Judeo’ in my title? Well this should be more straight forward, and easier to understand, for Judaism is an all pervasive problem within the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, a VERY BIG pervasive problem. Now make no mistake, for nearly ALL the groups within the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion practice some form of Judaism, that is, salvation by works, and/or salvation through obedience to The Law and/or obedience to the Ten Commanments or even obeying Yashua Messiah. This means that Yashua Messiah’s Saving Grace along with His Faith are either blasphemed against, that is, abused, or are totally trampled on and snuffed out – killed. Which, in turn, means they trample all over Yashua Messiah’s sacrifice, that is, His death and His resurrection. They treat Him with utter contempt, and in many cases without even realising it.
‘Judeo’ also stands for monotheism, (see link No. 4 below) in one form or another, whether it be just ONE GOD as in Judaism and Islam, rendering Yashua Messiah a non-entity, and just a creation or what looks like an afterthought, if viewed from the Yahhead’s perspective. We then have their one god within a FICTIONAL TRINITY DEITY of ONE in three and three in ONE. That means whether it’s three in ONE or ONE in three, we still have a form of monotheism rattling around in there somewhere. This is a shell game conjuring trick of now you see ONE, or it could be now you see three depending on how many magic mushrooms you have eaten LOL.
Moreover, in all Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religious ‘churches’ some form of obedience will be in force, whether obedience to the Ten Commandments (The Law of Moses) or obedience to a Pope, Archbishop, cardinals, bishops, priests or some ministerial or pastor/elder hierarchy. This is the evil system of the Nicolaitans as described by Yashua Messiah in Revelation. To make things even worse, in many Protestant groups, women will be in the pulpits lording it over the men. Paul must be turning in his grave.
Furthermore, regulated Old Covenant Sabbath keeping will be the order of the day, whether seventh day or first day Sabbath keeping. There, also, will be annual pagan heathen fertility rite festivals like Christmas, Easter and Whitsun which have nothing to do with Yashua Messiah.
Within the Judeo religious Roman Cult there is actually an idolatrous ‘saint’s day’ for every single day of the year. Needless-to-say these fakes are not real saints, because in order to be a real saint you have to be called and chosen by The Father and then born of Yah (born again). No man has the power or the authority to make a man or woman a saint.
Moreover, having revealed the above deceptive points, here is what you will not find active and operational in these so called ‘churches’, that is, egalitarian Grace filled fellowships. And those with set apart Exclusive Spirit gifted teachers for new converts and beginners and overseers (shepherds) to keep a watchful eye out for spies and trouble makers (wolves) protecting the flocks in general, as was the case in the first century congregations.
OK, the third and most deceptive word of my title – The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion. Why the most deceptive I hear you say? Quite simply because it deceives billions, not just millions, but billions of people across the world. This is because when they hear the word Christian or Christianity they immediately link it, erroneously, to the organised satanic religions I have listed above who pose as followers of Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ).
I go head to head daily with hundreds of lost and unsaved people on social media who accuse supposed Christians and Christianity of all manner of wickedness, historical persecutions, tortures, evils, murders and genocides. The thing is, are they are correct to do so? Yes, for the people who did these vile deeds posed as Christians, and did their satanic evil deeds in the name of Christianity, thereby bringing shame and disgrace on Yashua Messiah’s (Jesus Christ’s) name – bringing His name into disrepute – and as wonderfully encapsulated by this famous heathen:
“I like your Christ; I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
— Muhatma Gandhi
Furthermore, these so called Christian groups follow their non-Scriptural hu-man made Creeds (see link No. 4 below) or their blasphemous Statements of Beliefs, not Yashua Messiah. These legalistic creeds and statements lay down the frameworks of their hu-man made organisations and have nothing to do with the Kingdom of God Gospel message that Yashua Messiah and His Messengers (apostles) taught in the first century.
This is because they want their lemming followers to 1) believe that salvation is within their particular ‘church’ only, or through being a member of their organisation or cult only and, 2) to give their hard earned dosh or tithes to these organisations. However, if they go outside of it and leave, they’re then deemed an apostate or they’re damned to fiery hell or they’re excommunicated as a heretic. Either way, they’re toast to these lying blasphemers as they chuck their satanic hierarchical weight around.
Now which ever way we cut this, none of it is Christian. To be a Christian is one who is called and chosen by The Father to His Son Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ) and who then follows Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ) – that’s it, apart from full immersion Baptism into Yashua Messiah’s (Jesus Christ’s) name alone, and the gifting of the set apart Exclusive Spirit. Once these things have occurred you are now born of Yah (born again) and you’re a Christian – a new creation, a member of The Elect (a saint) and a REAL CHRISTIAN!!
Oh dear what positive thing can be said about the meaningless vain pursuit of RELIGION!!?? Answer: Nothing!! (See link No. 5 below). Make sure you understand and never forget it – YAH HAS NO RELIGION. ALL religions are hu-man made on behalf of The Adversary himself. ALL religions worship The Adversary in one way or another and NONE of them worship Yashua Messiah and that includes??? Yes, you guessed it – The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion. Yes, hu-man beings and men dress their stupid religions up to make out they are worshipping Yashua Messiah, but the opposite is always The Truth – they ALL worship The Adversary!!
Now here’s a little test for you. Just search The Four Gospels in the KJV Bible for the word ‘religion’ and see if you can find it. OK, I jest, don’t worry yourselves, for I have already done so and I can assure you that it’s not there. However feel free to do your own research, as you should.
Furthermore, Yashua Messiah never uttered the word, RELIGION nor did He come to this earth in order to start a religion, nor did He instruct His Learners (disciples) in the ways of RELIGION. Religion = the vanity and egos of hu-man beings and wayward men. So there you have it – The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion!
Since writing part one of this short series of articles I have since learned an interesting fact or two and it looks like the term “Judeo-Christian” is not that old.
Here is a segment from a sermon given by Pastor Don Elmore and copied and recorded by “The Fellowship of God’s Covenant People” on their web page (I do not recommend Pastor Elmore or The Fellowship of God’s Covenant People as it looks like they, themselves, are Law invoking Judaisers). However, here is his piece:
“The term Judeo-Christianity did not originate with the name of a Jewish synagogue or a Christian Church or a merging of the two. It didn’t come from any views of any of their own theological rabbis or theologians. In fact, it originated from an English novelist who was born in the land where The Serpent was blown–India. The novelist lived in India till he was five years old and then went back to England to live, while his father remained in India. The Englishman then went back to India to work for about five years before he returned to England. His name: Eric Arthur Blair. You probably never heard of him by his birth name. But I would say that probably all of you know his pen name, George Orwell. He is famous for his books ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘1984’.
“Eric or George wrote this hyphenated word, “Judeo-Christian” as a linguistic attempt to fight against anti-Jewishness in the late 1930s. By using “Judeo-Christian,” Orwell meant to indicate tolerance and solidarity with a persecuted religious minority (i.e. the Jews). The National Conference of Christians and Jews (now called the National Conference for Community and Justice) subsequently adopted the term, and the Four Chaplains — a rabbi and three Christian ministers who in 1943 together gave their lives to rescue others aboard their sinking ship—became an icon of the postwar understanding of America’s religious pluralism.
“But one might think that Christianity and Judaism are theologically linked in a way that merits a special term to describe their shared history and belief system. But this notion fails to hold up under scrutiny. The Jewish theologian Eliezer Berkovitz perhaps put it most concisely when he wrote that: “Judaism is Judaism because it rejects Christianity, and Christianity is Christianity because it rejects Judaism.””
In the above Jewpedia article we can see lying propaganda galore about the Jew Marxist subversive Franklin Roosevelt and how he and his fellow Jews set about the task of politicising American mainstream Christianity with the Judeo-Marxist dogma. They also used this dogma as a tool and/or reason to wage a ‘righteous war’ against Germany and Japan whilst, in truth, Germany and Japan were far more righteous than the Jew tool nations Britain, France and The USA.
The above was graphically confirmed by the Polish ambassador of the day, Count Jerzy Potocki, to the US who reported back to Warsaw that President Roosevelt was working fanatically to develop a ‘war psychosis’ in the minds of the America people. As evidenced here:
Moreover, today we now have Cultural Jew Marxist liberals by the thousands who pose as Christians, but are, in reality, just Yahless politicised wretches who promote their fake Marxist ‘Jesus’. Not only that, but freely use their Cultural Jew Marxist slogans like ‘hate’, ‘hater’, ‘hate speech’, ‘bigot’, ‘Nazi’, ‘xenophobe’, ‘white supremacist’ etc. etc. with great regularity. You name ’em and they use ’em, delusionally and self-righteously thinking that they are doing The Yahavah’s work, when all the while they are doing Karl Marx’s work! (see link No. 6 below).
So there you have it – the rotten satanic Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion laid bare for all to see.
Revelation 18:4 (MCV) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

So how can anyone be a “Foolish Galatian” in the 21st century? They were just a first century phenomenon weren’t they? And only a serious problem for Paul and all the other Grace filled Assemblies in Galatia, surely? How can there be such a problem today? This must be nonsense, I hear you say. Well, it’s not as nonsensical as you might think and, in order to get a full understanding of what it’s all about, we need to take a look at Galatians to gain a better knowledge of what Paul was having to deal with.
We also need to know how the: “Justification through obedience to The Law” problem, for Grace filled and saved people, has never gone away. This vile evil concept is still with us today and do not err in your thinking, by making light of it:
Galatians 3:1 (KJV) O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not ‘obey’ (a corrupt translation – should read “you who have not been convinced of or persuaded by:-”) The Truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? (Brackets and italics mine)
Galatians 3:1 (Amplified Version) O you poor and silly and thoughtless and unreflecting and senseless Galatians! Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over you, unto whom—right before your very eyes—Jesus Christ (the Messiah) was openly and graphically set forth and portrayed as crucified?
From the Amplified Version we get a better insight into how dumb and stupid these people were and how dumb and stupid modern Galatian people are as well. Let’s look at verse 2 for our proof and evidence:
Galatians 3:2 (KJV) This only would I learn of you, Received ye The Spirit by the works of The Law, or by The Hearing of Faith?
Galatians 3:2 (Amplified Version) Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive The [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying The Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [The Message of The Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a Law of Rituals or from a Message of Faith?]
So here’s a question for all you blasphemers out there who think you can be saved by OBEDIENCE to The Commandments: Did you receive the gift of The Holy Spirit as a result of obeying The Commandments or by hearing The Message of Faith and BELIEVING it?
Let’s put this another way: Did you do anything or contribute anything by way of obedience to The Commandments in order to receive this free undeserved gift? If you did, let’s hear about it ‘cos I love a good laugh at the expense of vain puffed-up fools who think they can earn their own salvation by obedience to The Commandments.
Paul then begins to cement his case:
Galatians 3:3 (KJV) Are ye so foolish? having begun in The (Holy) Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? (Brackets mine)
Here again we can see how these stupid people had begun in The Holy Spirit which means that they were called by The Father to His Son by The Holy Spirit, but then said: “No thanks, we know a better way!!” And here is the first example of this evil mind set:
John 6:65-66 And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that many of His Learners (disciples) went back, and walked no more with Him.
These numb skull stiff necked people were just like The Galatians – they were precursors of those that Paul had to deal with later on. They thought they knew a better way, a way based upon their own initiative and motivation, their own efforts and their own vain imaginings of salvation under their own fuel and steam and not to mention their own terms and conditions. These bods had no use for The Holy Spirit, why would they, they were self-sufficient via their own righteousness through obedience to The Law – The Commandments.
Move forward a decade or so, to Paul’s time, and we then have these same kinds of vile wretched people who thought that The Holy Spirit’s saving Power was not enough i.e. NOT GOOD ENOUGH for them, can you believe that? So they re-invoked The Law – The Commandments, and obedience to same, in order to become ‘more righteous’ (chuckle, chuckle, chuckle) than their brothers and sisters living under Yashua Messiah’s Glorious Saving Grace being led by The Holy Spirit.
When we stop and think about this, it can only be summed up as gross mind-numbing blasphemous stupidity. What is even more mind-numbing and amazing is The Truth that these same types of stupid people are still with us today and yet, at the same time, profess to be Christians and/or followers of The Way – Yashua Messiah – how does that work!!??
Let’s be clear about this because elsewhere Paul makes it very plain:
Galatians 2:16 (KJV) Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of The Law, but by The Faith of Jesus Christ, even (so that) we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by The Faith of Christ, and not by the works of The Law: for by the works of The Law shall no flesh be justified. (Brackets and emphasis mine)
Now we must fully comprehend the points Yashua Messiah is explaining here, through Paul:
Point 1) No man is justified i.e. made righteous by the works of The Law. This includes obedience to The Ten Commandments. How do we know that? Easy, because Sabbath Day observance is no longer required under Grace. Everyday is now a Sabbath Day for those who have entered into Yashua Messiah’s Sabbath Rest = everyday is now a Sabbath Day for those who believe totally in Him for their salvation. See Hebrews Chapters 3 and 4 and then read it and internalise it.
Point 2) Mankind is justified only by Yashua Messiah’s Faith i.e. HIS FAITH, NOT OUR FAITH. Yashua Messiah gives us Faith, along with Grace, so that we can believe. Without the free gifts of His Faith and His Grace we would not be able to believe and then build our faith for rewards only upon that Foundation.
Point 3) We are then justified by His Faith and Paul makes that very clear with his statement: “That we might be justified by The Faith of Christ.”Get this clear in your minds, folks, and written on your hearts: YOUR FAITH does not feature in this arrangement, so YOUR FAITH does not feature at all in your salvation – period.
OK, let’s move on, because Paul now starts to lay it on the line:
Galatians 2:17 (KJV) But if seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves also were found to be sinners, is Christ then a minister of sin? Let it not be!
So, if we claim to be justified in, through, and by Yashua Messiah’s Sacrifice, His Faith and His Grace and are also found to be sinners, what is going on? Can sinners ever be justified? Can sinners enter The Kingdom of God? Can blemished and spotted bridal gowns attend The Wedding Feast? Nay, God forbid. Hence Paul asks can Yashua Messiah be a pastor of sin? Yet what points out our sin? What reveals our sin? What condemns us for our sins? The Law and The Commandments reveal and point out our sins and then condemns us. So is Yashua Messiah a Pastor of The Law and thereby condemning us or is He a Pastor of Truth, Love, Mercy, Redemption, Forgiveness, Faith and Grace?
Let’s remind ourselves:
Romans 8:1 (KJV) There is therefore now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus.
If there is now no condemnation for those IN Yashua Messiah where has The Law gone and what need is there for The Law and/or The Commanndments? The Law/Commandments or The Whole Law and the ensuing condemnation go hand in hand, as does The Law and obedience, so if there is now no more condemnation how can there be any Law over us? How can there be any need for obedience to The Law or The Commandments if they are no longer over us and condemning us?
Answers on the back of a postage stamp, thank you.
