I want to take a moment and talk about a subject that may not be the most popular message, but it will change your life if you take the time to read through it. In most cases when you speak to people about addictions the first thing they may think of is something generally shunned by society or the Church as morally questionable, such as addictions to drugs or illicit sex. However, there is an addiction that has the masses bound and they don’t even realize it. Even those who stand firm in some type of Bible-based religious faith are victims of this subtle bondage.
Years ago when I was attending ministry school I heard someone say something that intrigued me. They spoke about how Christians don’t drink, don’t use drugs, and so on, and that the only “vice” we have left is food. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word “vice” as:
• moral depravity or corruption
• a moral fault or failing
• a habitual and usually trivial defect or shortcoming
Addictions to food are a very real thing and many people are the victims of this tragedy of modern culture. However, in many, perhaps most, cases it is not an addiction to a food item itself so much as an addiction to things added to your food to make it addictive.
Remembering the Battle as we prepare for Passover
Today is Day 25 of Month 12 on the Creator’s calendar. Also known as March 18, 2023 on the Roman calendar.
I have had quite a week, and just made it back to Texas before Shabbat. I’m pretty tired so I’m going to keep this brief.
First, I want to remind you to keep looking up. The renewed moon is expected to be seen next week, after sunset on Wednesday, March 22, 2023.
That will mark the beginning of Month 1, of a renewed year and a renewed cycle of the Appointed Times.
The Creator gives us these “rehearsals” so we remember the past, which builds our faith for a future fulfillment. They are all still relevant, and we should continue rehearsing.
I know there are some who teach that Yahushua fulfilled “the Spring Feast” and we are now waiting for Him to fulfill “the Fall Feasts,” but it is not that simple.
It is important to understand that not all Appointed Times are Feasts, but all Feasts are Appointed Times. Only the Feasts require attendance at the House of Elohim, and there is still a future fulfillment for all of the Appointed Times, in my opinion.
For instance, during Passover we remember the Exodus from Egypt, and Yahushua’s fulfillment as the Passover Lamb.
But that’s not all. According to the Prophets, there is going to be another deliverance that will make the exodus from Egypt pale in comparison. (Jeremiah 16:14-15)
So, while Yahushua provided a fulfillment for the pattern of the Passover Lamb, we still expect Him to deliver the People of Elohim, like Moses.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have been talking about preparing for Passover while following Yahushua through the text of Luke.
As we have seen, the good news presented through the text is organized in such a way that it focuses the message upon Joseph – the House of Yisrael.
As we examine this amazing text, we find that Yahushua is repeatedly focusing on the foreigner, and the faith of the foreigner. He is doing this while teaching in the land allotted to the House of Yisrael, while the House of Yisrael is in exile, scattered among the Nations.
That is not all He does, but the author of the text is obviously trying to emphasize that point, which means it is important.
Many Christians have read the text their entire lives, and entirely missed the focus. This is because they fail to understand the history, the geography, and ultimately, the Covenant.
Last week, we left off examining Luke 7, but it didn’t stop there.
I suppose this study could become an entire book, although that was definitely not my original focus.
I want to move on to other issues as we approach Passover, but as I read on in Luke, I was amazed at the powerful message that Yahushua continued to send through His words and deeds. Again, the focus is on the foreigner, and the Nations.
The text of Luke continues in Chapter 8 by describing how Yahushua went about preaching the good news of the Kingdom and healing.
Sometimes, the message of the Kingdom gets lost in all of the activity.
Remember that this Creation is supposed to be part of the Kingdom of YHWH.
Currently, there are invaders and foreigners ruling over this planet, just like there were invaders and foreigners ruling over the Promised Land when Yahushua was teaching.
There is a battle raging between the Kingdom of YHWH, and the kingdom of darkness.
While you may have been born into darkness, YHWH invites you to join His Kingdom, if you are prepared to “Pledge Allegiance” to Him and obey His ways.
That is why both John and Yahushua began their messages with “Repent” followed by the Kingdom.
We all must turn from darkness and follow the Covenant path that leads us into the Kingdom.
While the battle certainly involves the physical realm, it is primarily occurring in the spiritual realm.
That battle was clearly demonstrated in Yahushua’s encounter in the region of the Gerasenes, on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee.
“26 Then they sailed to the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. 27 When Yahushua had stepped out on land, there met him a man from the city who had demons. For a long time he had worn no clothes, and he had not lived in a house but among the tombs. 28 When he saw Yahushua, he cried out and fell down before him and said with a loud voice, “What have you to do with me, Yahushua, Son of the Most High Elohim? I beg you, do not torment me.” 29 For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For many a time it had seized him. He was kept under guard and bound with chains and shackles, but he would break the bonds and be driven by the demon into the desert.) 30 Yahushua then asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion,” for many demons had entered him. 31 And they begged Him not to command them to depart into the abyss. 32 Now a large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside, and they begged him to let them enter these. So He gave them permission. 33 Then the demons came out of the man and entered the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and drowned. 34 When the herdsmen saw what had happened, they fled and told it in the city and in the country. 35 Then people went out to see what had happened, and they came to Yahushua and found the man from whom the demons had gone, sitting at the feet of Yahushua clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid. 36 And those who had seen it told them how the demon-possessed man had been healed. 37 Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Gerasenes asked him to depart from them, for they were seized with great fear. So He got into the boat and returned. 38 The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with Him, but Yahushua sent him away, saying, 39 “Return to your home, and declare how much Elohim has done for you.” And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Yahushua had done for him.” Luke 8:26-39
Most people who have read the Bible know this story, but fail to recognize its uniquely powerful message.
First of all, it is critical to understand that “the country of the Gerasenes” was foreign territory. It was not merged with the Galilee, like it is today. It was more Syrian.
Also, Legion is a military term. The Romans actually had two legions camped in the Covenant Land at that time. The Second Roman Legion was stationed at Megiddo, while the Tenth Roman Legion was stationed at Jerusalem.
So, Yahushua sailed straight into enemy territory, and went to battle against a Legion. It was like an amphibious assault on the Nations. It was the first D-Day invasion (i.e., Deliverance Day).
Notice that the text keeps referring to “the city.” What city?
The text of Mark actually gets us close to the answer.
“And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Yahushua had done for him, and everyone marveled.” Mark 5:20
So, what is the Decapolis you might ask?
“Deca” means “10” and “polis” means “city.” So, Decapolis literally means: “Ten Cities.”
Here is a typical description of the Decapolis. “The Decapolis was a group of ten Hellenistic cities on the eastern frontier of the Roman Empire in the Southern Levant in the first centuries BC and AD. They formed a group because of their language, culture, religion, location, and political status, with each functioning as an autonomous city-state dependent on Rome.”
So, which one of the ten was “the city” referred to in Luke? Well, we know from the geography and archaeology that it was Hippos. Hippos, also known as Susita, is located up the slopes of the Golan, overlooking the Kinnereth. It is also geographically located within the Gerasene territory.
I actually had the pleasure of working on an archaeological dig at the Hippos site almost two decades ago.
It was clearly a pagan city during Yahushua’s time. I excavated what they referred to as The Hellenistic Compound, and helped uncover the various wine vats used to store the wine they produced.
Why was the wine made in the temple complex? Because they worshipped Dionysus, a fertility god associated with wine and extasy.
And guess what they sacrificed to Dionysus? You guessed it. Pigs.
So, this was a spiritual stronghold focused on the worship of a son of Zeus – a Nephilim, also known as Bacchus by the Romans.
Yahushua was revealing that His mission went far beyond parables.
He came to literally take on the kingdom of darkness, ruled by the rebellious fallen ones. He was going to restore what Adam lost, and bring the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth.
In fact, much of what we classify as healing involved casting out demons. These were targeted attacks and military strikes upon the kingdom of darkness, and the deliverance of the man from “Legion” was purposeful.
Yahushua freed a prisoner of war, and then recruited him for the Kingdom of YHWH.
He sent the guy right back into the fray. He told him to go to the enemy headquarters in Hippos where a rival deity was deceiving people.
In fact, it appears that he was the first evangelist commissioned by the Messiah.
So, while Yahushua was still training disciples to go to the Nations, He wasn’t wasting any time. He sent this guy out right away, into a pagan city.
Can you grasp the impact of this event?
Zeus was the most high god in Hellenistic culture, and therefore Dionysus was considered to be “the son of the most high god.”
The amazing thing is that Yahushua essentially “nuked” the spiritual infrastructure in Hippos. By destroying those pigs, He effectively halted the blood sacrifices of Dionysus.
The blood is what gives power to these gods. Once the blood stopped flowing, their shields were down.
With the Legion army of Dionysus vanquished, it created the perfect opportunity for His new foot soldier to storm the gates and fill the void with his testimony regarding the true “Son of the most High Elohim.”
So, Yahushua was in enemy territory doing battle against the kingdom of darkness. He recruited an avatar from the enemy’s camp, and sent him back into battle, straight into the stronghold of Dionysus.
Of course, the Nations were placed under the Sons of Elohim after the Tower of Babel. (Deuteronomy 32:8)
YHWH claimed Abraham as His inheritance. Now that His Covenant people were scattered throughout the Nations, Yahushua was going to fight to get them back.
So, we see this theme continuing throughout Luke.
I suppose I will have to continue pointing these things out in future mailings, but since I try to write these messages on a weekly basis, I thought I should mention some recent events.
Which ones? You might ask.
There are so many. Is it the next pandemic, World War III, or food shortages? Is it the impending arrest of President Trump, or the arrest warrant issued against President Putin?
Well, much of what we are seeing is actually all connected as they try to bring down the current system, in order to initiate the Great Reset.
I hope that you all can see the setup that is taking place on the world, and national stage.
I’m not a fear-monger, there are plenty of them to go around. Nevertheless, we do need to consider our surroundings, and the plans of the evil ones.
Could it be that Yahushua was sending a message to us throughout the centuries, knowing His words would land on the ears of His sheep scattered in the Nations? To a flock of foreigners scattered as far as the four corners of the earth?
The Federal Reserve is in the process of raising interest rates, and that is forcing the collapse of some banks who’s marked to market assets must be liquidated at a loss.
This is a combination of negligence, corruption, and tyranny.
The Central Banks have the unique ability to print money out of thin air and then lend their currency.
They ultimately want to get rid of paper and competing assets, including crypto currencies, and they would like to roll out a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).
They are looking to take down, and take over, all the regional banks that are most vulnerable.
The FDIC is not capable of satisfying all of these bank losses and it could the perfect opportunity to quickly unveil and distribute the Feds new CBDC.
And guess what, all you will need is an app on your phone.
Most of the money supply in the United States is already digits on computers.
Only a fraction of the 21 Trillion dollar money supply is in physical bills and coins. In fact, there are only about 50 billion physical “dollars.”
So, the entire financial system is a sham. The Federal Reserve, and their Federal Reserve Notes, are one of the biggest scams in world history.
The Federal Reserve Bank is not owned by the government of the United States of America. It is a private bank with the appearance of being “Federal,” but it is owned by forces that want to own you.
Their ultimate control will be a programmable Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) that they can use to track and control you.
While I previously mentioned that vaccine passports would be a way to control people, so too are the CBDC’s. They can literally be turned on, turned off, or limited in countless ways to control the user at the whim of the Central Bank, and anyone else with access to the operating system.
As the evil ones seek to control you by refining their corrupted currency, YHWH will ultimately judge their evil system of enslavement.
This is all reminiscent of Joseph in Egypt.
Remember when Joseph was exiled from the Land, and found himself a prisoner in the most powerful Nation on Earth at the time – Egypt.
Pharaoh was given certain information concerning the future food supply. Pharaoh later shared that intel with Joseph.
Do you remember what Joseph helped Pharaoh do with the intel they had?
Pharaoh ended up owning everything because of the climate change that he saw coming, and the resulting food shortages and banking crisis.
Do you see history repeating itself?
Pharaoh stepped in like the Fed will step in. The people who were desperate and did not have enough ended up selling everything to Pharaoh, including themselves, in order to eat.
This set the stage for the future enslavement of the Yisraelites, and led to their miraculous deliverance.
We currently see a repeat of this pattern, only now it is on a global scale.
Joseph in Egypt was elevated to the viceroy of Egypt. Second only to Pharaoh.
Joseph in the current exile has multiplied, expanded and elevated to power in the farthest reaches through powerful world empires.
This is actually a fulfillment of the promise given to Abraham. “5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you.” Genesis 17:5-6
Joseph has been involved in the current situation that seems awful at first, but it is going to end in judgment upon the wicked and deliverance of the people of YHWH from the Nations.
Through it all, the Name of YHWH is going to be elevated and esteemed.
You aren’t going to track Joseph through a genetic test, because he has been mixed with the Nations. As a result, the future we are approaching does not involve finding out if you are Jewish.
It involves recognizing that you are among the lost sheep, and need a Good Shepherd to find you, deliver you, and guide you home.
He has a pasture, but if you don’t want to feed there, then you are not one of His sheep, and you may go hungry.
The people in Egypt were taken by surprise by the famine. While they all had an opportunity to prepare during the seven years of prosperity, they probably just enjoyed the abundance.
They didn’t have the intel, and apparently Pharaoh did not share it. We don’t know for sure.
The interesting thing is that people with land couldn’t grow food, even if they wanted to. People with land were giving up their land, their possessions and their freedom for food.
The only people not becoming slaves were the ones with stored food. And only because Jacob had silver could he buy food. Those who ran out of food, and silver ultimately became slaves. They had to take the mark of Pharaoh, if you catch my drift.
Of course, Pharaoh was considered to be a god. He represented the Sun.
Egyptian culture was a Sun worshipping culture and Joseph, a foreigner, ran it all. The elite with intel were prepared for the future, while the masses were caught off guard.
The good news is that the people of YHWH are not among the ignorant.
“For YHWH Elohim does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7
We are given information concerning the future, and are called to be wise.
We now see the current representative of the sun, the Pope, along with world religions and powers repeating history through a planet encompassing beast system. The forces of darkness have been empowered by the blood of countless human sacrifices through abortion.
Thankfully, the blood of One is able to overcome it all.
So, as we look around at the state of the Nations, we know this story and we know how it ends.
It may not be long before many banks fail, food gets too expensive or scarce, and people start to panic. Will you be prepared or hungry? Will you be looking to Pharaoh or YHWH?
This is all part of the Passover story that we should be remembering and rehearsing so that we make the right decision. And while we make our preparations for Passover the answer should be clear.
As we look to the blood of Yahushua for our protection, and follow the Good Shepherd, there is no reason to fear any of this. Our Elohim can provide water from a rock and bread from heaven.
All we need to do is be wise, trust, obey, and follow Him as we continue the fight.
I received some additional information from Christopher regarding the Oregon prison. I thought you would enjoy the update.
Hello, the prison is called “Two Rivers”. It’s in a small country town in Umatilla, Oregon. Yeauha is using your “walk in the light” series to bring enemies, gang members who hardly ever talk, to sitting at the same tables talking about the Father. It brought me close to a black man in there, who I would usually never associate with.
You have no idea, your famous in there haha. You messaging me back brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for your ministry and teachings. I would of been left in the dark and never known how to praise our Father appropriately.
One more thing, if it makes a difference. Two Rivers is the most violent prison in Oregon. You started a small movement in there. I left a while ago and don’t know how it is now but thank you again. Shalom brother
This was such a precious report that I wanted to share it. The world is becoming very dark, but there are people who need the Light and while we are still here, we are the conduit for that Light.
Maybe if you have the Walk in the Light series sitting on a shelf gathering dust, donate them to your local prison.
Shema Yisrael (Hear O Yisrael) are the words that Yahushua spoke when asked what was the First Command.
“The first of all the Commandments is:
Hear, O Yisrael,
YHWH our Elohim, YHWH is one.”
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
The great untaught Mystery about Yeshua as both the Son of God and the Son of Man!
This paper has been written to help everyone to better understand this great mystery about Yeshua, who was born from the virgin Miriam as both the Son of Man and the Son of God because of what Father God had contributed into the Seed of Eve in the womb of Miriam, to bring about Yeshua’s Conception in the virgin.
It was as the Son of Man that Yeshua would give His physical life to redeem mankind and also the earth from all of its sin.
To begin with the Child Yeshua had to be born through the virgin, as Emmanu El (God with us), prophesied in Isaiah 7:13, 14, because this Child would be without sin! Every human being that is born from their mother through human parents has the generational sins coming from their father.
For it is the sins of the father (and not the mother) that are passed to the children to the third and fourth generations. Read this in Exodus 20:5 and Exodus 34:7.
Yeshua was a true physically born son, the fulfillment of the two-family lines of the virgin Miriam. For Miriam, even though a virgin still had a father and a mother.
Yeshua’s lineage is both from the virgin Miriam’s father’s family, which was the family line from king David, of the tribe of Judah, and also from virgin Miriam’s mother’s family, which was the family of the Zadokite high priests of Aaron.
He was never an Aaronic priest for He had no biological earthly father. But He is always from the two families of His virgin mother.
Yeshua, born from the family of the Zadokite high priests is proven in 20 different Scriptural places in both the Tanakh (Old Covenant) and the Brit HaDashah (New Covenant). This is in my newest book called, ‘The Greatest Mystery of all Bible Mysteries is King Priest Yeshua’s full hidden secret identity born as a son from the two families of the virgin Miriam …’
Yeshua born from the family of king David had been prophesied in many different Scriptures. Here are just a few:
Isaiah 7:13, 14; “13 Then he said, Hear now, O house of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Emmanu El (God with us!).”
1st Chronicles 17:10-15; “10 … Furthermore I tell you that the LORD will build you (David) a house. 11 And it shall be, when your days are fulfilled, when you must go to be with your fathers, that I will set up your Seed after you, who will be of your sons; and I will establish His Kingdom. 12 He shall build Me a House, and I will establish His Throne forever! 13 I will be his Father, and He shall be My Son; and I will not take My mercy away from Him, as I took it from him who was before you. 14 And I will establish Him in My House and in My Kingdom forever; and His Throne shall be established forever. 15 According to all these words and according to all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.”
2nd Samuel 7:11-17; “11 … Also the LORD tells you that He will make you a house. 12 “When your days are fulfilled and you rest with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you, who will come from your body, and I will establish His Kingdom. 13 He shall build a House for My name, and I will establish the Throne of His Kingdom forever! 14 I will be his Father, and he shall be My son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the blows of the sons of men. 15 But My mercy shall not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 And your house and your Kingdom shall be established forever before you. Your throne shall be established forever. 17 According to all these words and according to all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.”
This prophesy will be fulfilled when Yeshua returns as the King and High Priest of Heaven, seen in Zechariah 6:11-13, “11 Take the silver and gold, make elaborate crowns, and set on the head of Joshua (Yehoshua) the son of Jeho zadok, the (Zadokite) high priest. 12 Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold, the Man whose name is the Branch (Tzemach)! From His place He shall branch out, and He shall build the Temple of the LORD; 13 Yes, He shall build the Temple of the LORD. He shall bear the Glory, and shall sit and rule on His Throne. So He shall be a Priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace shall be between them both (Messiah as both the King and High Priest).”
Yeshua was prophesied to be born from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron in four different places! The first of these is found in Luke 1:5, 6, and 36.
Luke 1:31 “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Yeshua.”
“32 He will be Great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His Kingdom there will be no end. 34 Then Mariam said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” 35 And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God! 36 Now indeed, Elisheva your relative (in Hebrew it says karov, which means close relative) has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.”
Who was Miriam’s relative Elisheva?
Luke 1:5-6 “5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zechariah, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisheva. 6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.”
Elisheva was from the daughters of Aaron, and her husband Zechariah was an Aaronic priest from the family of Aaron.
Only one family of Aaron could come before God (read Ezekiel 44:11-14, and 15, 16, where all the other Aaronic priest families were removed forever from coming before God’s presence), except only the sons of the high priest family of Zadok were allowed to come before God.
Zadok in Hebrew means “righteous.” The virgin Miriam was from this same family line as her close relative Elisheva and her husband priest Zechariah, the high priest family of the Zadokites, through Miriam’s mother, besides Miriam being from the family of king David through her father.
A Jewish person could only be from one tribe, the tribe of the father’s family, but every child was always from both of their parents’ families, the family of their father and the family of their mother. The same was also true for Miriam. And this would also be true for Miriam’s Son Yeshua, born from the virgin.
Hebrews 7:11-17 “11 Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another Priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron? 12 For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the Torah. 13 For He of whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no man has officiated at the altar. 14 For it is evident that our Lord arose from Judah, of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood. 15 And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchi Zedek, there arises another Priest 16 who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life. 17 For He testifies, “You are a Priest forever by My Word Melchi Zedek (My King of Righteousness).” ”
This is Yeshua’s Eternal title as the High Priest of Heaven.
Psalm 110:1, 4 “1 A Psalm of David. The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool.” 4 The LORD has sworn And will not relent, “You are a priest forever by My Word, Melchizedek.” ”
Yeshua had asked those around Him the following question …
Matthew 22:42-45: “42 saying, “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose Son is He?” They said to Him, “The Son of David.” 43 He said to them, “How then does David in the Spirit call Him ‘LORD,’ saying: 44 ‘The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies your footstool?” ’ 45 If David then calls Him ‘LORD,’ how is He his Son?”
Luke 20:41-44 “41 And He said to them, “How can they say that the Messiah is the Son of David? 42 Now David himself said in the Book of Psalms, ‘The LORD said to My Lord, Sit at My right hand, 43 until I make Your enemies Your footstool.’ ” 44 Therefore David calls Him ‘LORD’; how is He then his Son?”
The answer to this parable which nobody in Jerusalem could answer Him then is the following …
God had first prophesied in Genesis 3:15 to Adam and Eve, and to the serpent, that from the Seed in Eve that God would raise up a Savior, the Messiah, who would one day destroy the serpent, and also save God’s people. But that this Savior would also redeem the earth itself from the curse which God had spoken over the earth in Genesis 3:17.
This Seed from Eve would travel for over 2000 years, running through two Hebrew tribes and two Hebrew families, finally coming into the virgin Miriam through her father and her mother.
This Seed from Eve would run through Abraham and down through the families of the tribe of Judah, going to Amminadab, and then to his son Nachshon, and then on to king David, from Judah.
But this Seed of Eve would also travel into the tribe of Levi through Amminadab’s daughter Elisheva from Judah, who would marry Aaron, Moses’s brother from Levi, who later became the first high priest.
This Seed would travel through these two families of Israel, the family of kings from king David and also the family of high priest’s from Elisheva and Aaron’s first son Eliezar, going on to high priest Zadok. From Zadok this Seed would go to high priest Yehoshua, and finally to Miriam’s mother.
Hebrews 10:5 “Therefore, when He came into the world, He said, “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a Body You have prepared for Me.” ”
A Body would be needed for God’s Messiah, Yeshua, the King of Heaven and also High Priest of Heaven, to come to earth. Yeshua would be born from the virgin, who had received the Seed of Eve into her as a baby, coming from both her father and her mother. As a young virgin woman, the Holy Spirit came upon Miriam, and she conceived Yeshua, the Messiah, Savior of Israel.
Yeshua as the King of Heaven would be the perfect physical fulfillment of Miriam’s father’s family of kings from king David, from the tribe of Judah.
But also, Yeshua as the High Priest of Heaven, Melchi Zedek, would be born the perfect physical fulfillment through Miriam’s mother’s family, the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron, the only Aaronic priest family allowed to come before God. (Ezekiel 44:15, 16)
Yeshua was born as the physical fulfillment of these two Jewish family lines. But not until His baptism in the Jordan River around age 30 would He receive His anointing from the Holy Spirit to begin His earthly ministry.
Was Yeshua then an Aaronic priest?
No! Never! Why? Because the Aaronic priesthood was only passed from an earthly blood father to his son. And Yeshua, born from the virgin, had no biological earthly father.
God had prepared all this ahead of time, for all things were done absolutely perfectly by God for His Son Yeshua to be born to the earth through the virgin, prophesied in Isaiah 7:13, 14, and also in Jeremiah 23:5, 6, to be coming from the family of king David.
But it was also prophesied in Jeremiah 33:14-26, and in Zechariah 3:1-10 and Zechariah 6:11-13, that the Messiah would be born to earth coming through the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron.
Yeshua was physically born on earth as the Son of Man, coming from the two families of His virgin mother Miriam.
Miriam’s father was from the family of king David, and Miriam’s mother was from the family of high priest Zadok.
Yeshua born from the family of king David is well documented in Scripture.
But Yeshua coming from the high priest family of Zadok, though found in the Scriptures is not documented or being taught today. And yet this mystery Truth about Yeshua can be found in at least 20 different Scriptures in the Old and New Covenants.
Also, Yeshua came to the earth with what His Father contributed into the Seed of Eve at His human conception, through the Holy Spirit, in the womb of the virgin Miriam.
All this had been announced to Miriam, the young Jewish woman by the angel Gabriel, just prior to Miriam’s Child’s conception, Luke 1:32 – 36.
But it would not be until Yeshua was able to overcome every obstacle as the Son of Man that Yeshua would accomplish His life’s purpose, by living a perfect sinless earthly life, being always totally surrendered to the Holy Spirit.
Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, died as the only human being without sin, shedding His sinless Blood sacrifice on the Cross in order to redeem both mankind and also redeem the earth from the curse originally spoken by God (Genesis 3:17) against the earth, from all the sins committed upon the earth by mankind.
Leviticus 17:11, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make Atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes Atonement for the soul.”
Deuteronomy 32:43, “He will provide Atonement for His land and His people!” He did this through His sinless Blood.
Yeshua’s Blood as the Son of Man contained what His mother Miriam had given to Him through her two families, king David’s family and also high priest Zadok’s family. His Blood is Jewish blood, the fulfillment of Jewish kings from David and also Jewish high priest’s from Zadok of Aaron.
But Yeshua’s physical Blood also contains what He received at His conception from His Father in Heaven through the Holy Spirit, as both the King of Heaven and also the High Priest of Heaven.
Yeshua’s sinless human Jewish Blood is truly like no other human being’s blood, because it also contains His divinity from Heaven. This perfect sinless Blood was used by God to ratify the New Covenant with Israel and the nations.
His Blood made all true believers into God’s ‘New Creations,’ with God’s Spirit being connected into their dead spirit’s, changing their dead spirit instantly into a ‘born again’ Living Spirit.
When the Holy Spirit fell upon those first 120 disciples in that Upper Room on the Feast of Shavuot in Jerusalem fifty days after Yeshua had died and rose into Heaven, they were all instantly Saved, and became the One New Man!
Yeshua’s Jewish Blood forever destroyed the dividing wall between all saved Jews and Gentiles. And also, with God’s contribution into Yeshua’s Blood, this made all true believers into New Creations of God, the One New Man!
Yeshua’s Blood is never separated from the Holy Spirit of the Living God.
Hebrews 9:14 “how much more shall the Blood of the Messiah, who through the Eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
Only as the Son of Man could Yeshua provide Atonement for all the sins of mankind, and also for the sins committed into the earth, because the earth had been given to the first man Adam, and then was also cursed by God. Genesis 1:26; Genesis 3:17; and Deuteronomy 32:43
Only this sinless Man who was also born from the high priest family of Zadok of Aaron could redeem mankind from all sins and also break the curse originally spoken by God over the earth.
This Truth about Yeshua born from the Zadokite high priest family can be found in at least three different places in the Scriptures: Jeremiah 33:18; Zechariah 3:1-10; and Zechariah 6:11-13
And no Aaronic high priest could ever break this curse of God into the earth, (Genesis 3:17) or ever cleanse and redeem the earth from all of man’s sin. Only the Blood of a totally sinless Man, the Son of Man, our promised Messiah, Yeshua, could ever do that.
Genesis 3:17 “Cursed is the ground for your sake …”
Numbers 35:33-34 “33 ‘So you shall not pollute the land where you are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it. 34 Therefore do not defile the land which you inhabit, in the midst of which I dwell; for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel.’ ”
Yeshua was prophesied as God’s physical Righteous Servant who was to die for the sins of all people …
Isaiah 42:1, 3-4 “1 Behold! My Servant whom I uphold, My Elect One in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth Justice to the Gentiles. 3 A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench; He will bring forth Justice for Truth. 4 He will not fail nor be discouraged, till He has established Justice in the earth; and the coastlands shall wait for His Torah (instructions).”
Isaiah 49:3-6 “3 And He said to me, ‘You are My Servant, O Israel, in whom I will be Glorified.’ 4 Then I said, ‘I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and in vain. Yet surely my just reward is with the LORD, and my work with my God.’ 5 And now the LORD says, who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant, to bring Jacob back to Him, so that Israel is gathered to Him (for I shall be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and My God shall be My strength), 6 Indeed He says, ‘It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles, that You should be My Salvation to the ends of the earth!’ ”
Isaiah 52:13-15 “13 Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high. 14 Just as many were astonished at you, so His visage was marred more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men; 15 So shall He sprinkle many nations (through His sinless Blood). Kings shall shut their mouths at Him;”
Isaiah 53:4-6, 10-11 “4 Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. 10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. 11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My Righteous Servant shall justify many, for He shall bear their iniquities!”
Zechariah 3:8 “Hear, O Joshua, the high priest, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are a wondrous sign; for behold, I am bringing forth My Servant the Branch (Tzemach)!”
Luke 22:42 “saying, Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done!”
In the four Gospels, Yeshua is called both the Son of God and also the Son of Man. He called Himself the Son of God perhaps only 5 times, but Yeshua called Himself the Son of Man, His favorite title, perhaps 80 times or more.
Yeshua’s physical title as the Son of Man would be Yeshua’s greatest accomplishment and overcoming Triumph here on the earth, also when He died for us on the Cross, even more than His true title as the Son of God. Because to be the Son of Man was the whole reason that He had come to earth. His assignment from His Father was to totally lay down His soul (mind, will, and emotions), His total physical life in order to redeem mankind, and also to redeem the earth itself from all of its sins back to God.
John 1:29, 36 “29 The next day Yochanan saw Yeshua coming toward him, and said, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” 36 And looking at Yeshua as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!” ”
Revelation 13:8 “All who dwell on the earth will worship him (the anti Christ), whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world!”
Genesis 22:8 “And Abraham said, My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” (Also see Revelation 5:6)
Luke 1:35 “And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the Power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.”
Yeshua very rarely ever referred to Himself as the Son of God …
John 3:18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God!”
John 5:25 “Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.”
John 10:36 “… do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God?’ ”
John 11:4 “When Yeshua heard that, He said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the Glory of God, that the Son of God may be Glorified through it.”
Matthew 26:63-64 “63 But Yeshua kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, “I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Messiah, the Son of God!” 64 Yeshua said to him, “It is as you said! Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of Heaven.” ”
Luke 22:70 “Then they all said, “Are You then the Son of God?” So He said to them, “You rightly say that I am!” ”
The Son of Man!
Psalm 80:17 “Let Your hand be upon the Man of Your right hand, upon the Son of Man whom You made strong for Yourself.”
Daniel 7:13 “I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of Heaven!”
“He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. 14 Then to Him was given Dominion and Glory and a Kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His Dominion is an Everlasting Dominion, which shall not pass away, His Kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.”
There are many dozens of places, perhaps 80 places where Yeshua had referred to Himself as the Son of Man!
I will list only just a few …
Matthew 9:6 “But that you may know that the Son of Man has Power on earth to forgive sins, then He said to the paralytic, “Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” ”
Matthew 12:40 “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
Matthew 12:8 “For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”
Matthew 13:37 “He answered and said to them, He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man.”
Matthew 13:41 “The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness …”
Matthew 16:27 “For the Son of Man will come in the Glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.”
Matthew 16:28 “Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom.”
Matthew 17:9 “Now as they came down from the mountain, Yeshua commanded them, saying, “Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man is risen from the dead.” ”
Matthew 18:11 “The Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.”
Matthew 19:28 “So Yeshua said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His Glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” ”
Matthew 20:18 “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death …”
Matthew 20:28 “… just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
Matthew 24:27 “For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”
Matthew 24:30 “Then the Sign of the Son of Man will appear in Heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great Glory.”
Matthew 26:45 “Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.” ”
Mark 2:10 “But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins. He said to the paralytic …”
Luke 9:56 “For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.”
Luke 18:8 “I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
Luke 21:36 “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Luke 22:69 “Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the Power of God.”
John 3:13 “No one has ascended to Heaven but He who came down from Heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in Heaven.”
John 3:14 “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up …”
John 5:27 “… and has given Him authority to execute Judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.”
John 6:53 “Then Yeshua said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.” ”
John 8:28 “Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.” ”
John 12:23 “But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be Glorified!” ”
1 John 5:4-9 “4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world, our faith. 5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Yeshua is the Son of God? 6 This is He who came by water and blood, Yeshua the Messiah; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is Truth. 7 For there are three that bear witness in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. 9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son.”
John 19:33-35 “33 But when they came to Yeshua and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. 35 And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe.”
This Authors Conclusions
A while ago I met a friend in Jerusalem who believed that Yeshua is only God, and never a physical human being. That is one of the main reasons why Yeshua has had me to write this new paper.
If you do not believe Yeshua was a human being, a Man who physically died in your place for all of your sins, then you are not really Saved!
By God’s definition of what Salvation means, being ‘born again,’ means that you to believe that Yeshua, the Son of God and the Son of Man actually was physically born on earth. And around the age of 33, He actually physically died in your place on the Cross in Jerusalem, taking all of your sins upon Himself, so that you could have Eternal Life with both Himself and His Father.
There is a small community outside of Jerusalem who also share this same belief that Yeshua is only God, and was never a man. There is also a bigger community by the coast of Israel where this belief about Yeshua is also shared. God desires for all of these people to learn this Truth about Yeshua, so that they also will be able to come into true eternal Salvation with the God of Israel.
Philippians 2:6-8 “6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bond-servant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”
Even though Yeshua was always the Son of God, He mainly lived and walked on earth as a most humble man, as the Son of Man, in order to redeem each and every one of us from all of our sins, so that we would be able to live forever with Yeshua and with our Heavenly Father, the Creator of the Universe, the God of Israel, the God of Love. What great Love Yeshua and our Father have for all of us.
John 14:6 “Yeshua said to him, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” ”
John 17:3 “And this is Eternal Life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah whom You have sent.”

Yeshua said in John 12:32 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all peoples to Myself!”
John 17:3 “And this is Eternal Life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah whom You have sent.”
Salvation and Eternal Life are free gifts from God! But you must ask God for them just by accepting God’s Son Yeshua as your Lord and Savior. He paid the ultimate price, by dying in your place on the Cross for all of your sins, and by taking all of your sins upon Himself.
Whether you are one of the most religious Orthodox Jewish persons or simply a Jew who has never believed in the God of Israel, if you do not personally know Yeshua, the King and High Priest of Heaven, your Creator, as your own personal Savior then say the following prayer, meaning it with all of your heart. And you will be able to know Him and you will be saved, and also when you die, you can be assured that you will be going to Heaven. And you will experience the Love of God from Yeshua, the God of Love!
Dear Lord Yeshua, I ask You to be my Lord and Savior, my Messiah! I confess that I am a sinner, and that I have broken Your commandments and Your laws. That I need you as my Savior. I repent for all of my sins. Please forgive me of all my sins, and come and live in my heart. Fill me with Your love, and Your forgiveness, and with Your wonderful Holy Spirit! Amen.
I bless all those who curse me!
Please send this special teaching out to many of your family and friends to read.
I have written many other books and articles over the years which are all free to download from my website. My most important book is called, ‘Yeshua, my King of Righteousness, Heaven’s King and Great High Priest,’ which proves that Yeshua was born from two families, king David’s family through Miriam’s father, and the family of Zadokite high priests of Aaron through Miriam’s mother.
Also, the Truth about Yeshua’s Eternal Blood sacrifice is not being taught today. Father God never honored Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice because Yeshua was just from the family of king David. But Father God did honor Yeshua’s Eternal Blood Sacrifice, because Yeshua, as the High Priest of Heaven, Melchi Zedek (my King of Righteousness) was born the fulfillment of the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron!
Yeshua was never an Aaronic priest simply because He had no biological earthly father; but Yeshua is always from the two families of His virgin mother Miriam.

501c3: The Devil's Church
A 501(c)(3) corporation is a non-profit organization that gains a tax-exempt status under section 501(c) in the U.S. Internal Revenue (IRS) Code [26 U.S.C. §501(c)]. Many types of non-religious clubs and groups are eligible for 501c3 incorporated status, but part 3 in the tax code was developed for religious, educational, and charitable entities. There is a false assumption by many churchgoers today that in order to be an “official church,” one must obtain 501c3 status, but this could not be further from the truth. There is no law anywhere that requires any church to get 501c3 status, and as we will see later, it is most often done for financial benefit. In this book, we will learn about the dangers of 501c3, why so many pastors seek to get it, and why it causes so many problems for churchgoers.
In all fairness, that seems reasonable, so why would there be any harm in having a 501c3 corporation? It seems like they are just there to help people, and get government support while doing so. Indeed, there is nothing generally wrong with having a 501c3 corporate contract, UNLESS it is specifically for the born again church of the Lord Jesus Christ; then there are MANY offenses that most pastors and elders are completely unwilling to understand.
What is our Inheritance?
Many Christians have been taught that the earth is an evil place and that God has plans for us to vacate the earth and escape from evil by going to heaven where we will live forever. This is usually pictured as a great retirement home, where we sing praises to God for eternity and amuse ourselves by learning to play harps.
But God is a Creator by nature. I really cannot see Him being idle for so long, and because we were created in His image, we would soon find heaven to be quite boring as well.
The underlying doctrine behind the idea that the earth is evil and heaven is good is not found in biblical Hebrew thought but in the Greek view and in other non-biblical cultures. Unfortunately, the church adopted many Greek views when it evangelized the Greeks without teaching them the biblical viewpoint.
Greek religious culture was founded on the idea that spirit was good and matter was evil. In fact, matter, they said, was the creation of an evil god—a Satan figure—which they called the demiurge. They believed that the problem at the beginning of time was that spirit came down and intermixed with this evil matter. Hence, the solution was to separate the two into their respective spheres.
Dualism was thus built into the system. Light must be separated from Darkness, good from evil, spirit from matter. The Greek solution posited that good and evil were co-eternal and that the existence of either depended upon the other. Hence, after this great separation is completed, it would only be a matter of time before the two would again be comingled, and the entire process would occur again in a future age.
The Epistles of Paul - Romans Part 7: Israel and the Law
Before beginning Romans chapter 6, I would like to take a few minutes to discuss the word sin and why I avoided it in my translations, even though the word’s use is so ubiquitous in Christian dialogue that it is impossible to avoid in daily discussion. When I was a child in Catholic grade school, we were taught that sin was some sort of black stain on your soul, and if you collected enough of them, you were going to suffer in flames for eternity. That was the nearly indelible picture left on my childhood mind by the nuns who educated me through the 4th grade. [It was certainly not unusual to me that black and evil were directly associated.] The nuns taught us that sin was something which resulted from certain actions, and the nature of those actions were usually and popularly described by the extreme cases, such as murder or stealing. However to a young boy with no ill intents sin seemed to be something which existed outside of the everyday routine of life, because the concept of what constituted sin was mystical or ethereal, and therefore its consequences were imagined to be disconnected from everyday reality. This was even more so the case because my parents were neither churchgoers nor Bible readers, and although they both had Christian upbringings and they were hard workers and usually decent people, they themselves were basically apostates. Catholics generally did not read the Bible, and that was the one aspect of Catholicism to which they evidently adhered. For quite some time we had a Bible in our home, but it was certainly never opened.
From 5th through 8th grades (1971 through 1974) I went to a Catholic school without nuns, and the concept of sin became even more obscure. The new school taught a substitute for Christianity which was comprised mostly of pop-culture Dharma and 1960’s style hippie love which were totally disconnected from the associated parish church. During these years the Catholic religion itself was a schizophrenic institution, and by the time I got to 7th grade I too was an apostate. By the time I was a teenager, sin was not even thought of as a moral concept. Sin was a church word, and if there was no church, then there was no sin. Because sin was not connected to Yahweh’s law in my childhood, except for perhaps a brief acquaintance with the ten commandments which I was never really taught, government law and peer approval became the controlling moral authorities of life, and not necessarily in that order.
Paths of Old – Ancient Paths
Jeremiah 6:16; 18:15; Acts 15:21
“Thus said יהוה (Yahweh), “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves….” (Jeremiah 6:16)
“But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway.” (Jeremiah 18:15)
Regular public reading of the Torah was introduced by Ezra the Scribe after the return of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity (c. 537 BCE), as described in the Book of Nehemiah 8. In the modern era, adherents of Orthodox Judaism practice Torah reading according to a set procedure they believe has remained unchanged in the two thousand years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 CE).
“For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21)

Israel considering legislation to imprison those who share their faith in Jesus Christ
Two pivotal members of Israel’s majority coalition in the Knesset (parliament) have proposed legislation to punish anyone who shares their faith in Jesus Christ with significant prison time.
Moshe Gafni and Yaakov Asher from the United Torah Judaism party (UTJ) are sponsors of the legislation which penalizes anyone “who solicits a person, directly, digitally, by mail, or online in order to convert his religion” with “one year imprisonment” and if the person is under 18 years of age, “two years imprisonment,” according to a translation provided by All Israel News (AIN).
Though the legislation applies to anyone having a conversation about their faith with Israelis of a different religion, in their official explanation of the bill, Gafni and Asher emphasized their motivation to target Christians in particular.
“Recently, the attempts of missionary groups, mainly Christians, to solicit conversion of religion have increased,” the UTJ legislators warned. Such activities involve “many negative repercussions, including psychological damages, [which] warrant the intervention of the legislature.”
Jewish Evangelical Christian Joel Rosenberg writes, “[t]he bill’s primary objective, therefore, appears to be making it illegal for followers of Jesus (‘Yeshua’ in Hebrew) to explain why they believe that Jesus is both Messiah and God with the hope that Israelis might consider following Him.”
Rosenberg, who is the editor-in-chief of AIN, concludes that if the bill is passed, not only will face to face communications of this type be prohibited, but “producing and publishing online videos explaining the Gospel to Jewish or Muslim people in Israel – and to those of any other religious faiths – would suddenly become illegal.”
Knesset panel plows ahead with judicial appointments bill despite 5,400 reservations
The Knesset was moving closer to approving one of the coalition’s core bills in its effort to overhaul the judiciary on Wednesday, which will give the government control of most judicial appointments if passed in its current form — despite thousands of reservations submitted against the measure by the opposition.
The committee reviewing the bill is expected to advance the measure on Wednesday and the final Knesset votes for the bill to become law are expected to be held next week before the Knesset takes a monthlong break in April.
In voting that went to the early hours of Wednesday morning, and then resumed later Wednesday morning, the Knesset’s Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee chairman MK Simcha Rothman angered the opposition by switching from individual votes to voting on the 5,400 reservations in batches.
PART 11: ENOCH, THE WATCHERS, AND THE FORGOTTEN MISSION OF JESUS CHRIST—The Old Testament Law: Added Because of Whose Transgressions?
How does the idea that the sin of the Watchers as told in 1 Enoch matter for New Testament theology? The answer is found in something Paul says about the Old Testament Law.
In his scholarly paper on the “bastard spirits” (the Watchers) and Galatians 3–4, New Testament scholar Tyler Stewart introduces us to the connection:
Paul’s view of the Law has baffled scholars such that he has been accused of self-contradiction and inconsistency. While Paul praises the Law (Rom[ans] 7:12, 14) and recognizes its authority in his arguments (Rom[ans] 3:21, 31), he also makes startling claims that it is no longer relevant after the advent of Christ (Rom[ans] 10:4; 2 Cor[inthians] 3:6–9, 14–15). The difficulties of Paul’s view are perhaps nowhere more pronounced than in Galatians 3–4 where the law appears almost entirely negative.
After a dense argument for the superiority of faith in Christ against “works of law” (Gal[atians] 3:1–18) Paul raises a logical question, “Why then the law? (3:19a). If the works of law do not justify (Gal[atians] 2:16; 3:11), place humanity under a curse (Gal[atians] 3:10–11), and the Law itself only added after the Abrahamic promise (Gal[atians] 3:17), then why bother at all? …Paul claims that for the Galatian believers to observe “works of the law,” particularly circumcision (Gal[atians] 5:2–4; 6:12–13; also 1 Cor[inthians] 7:18) and calendar (Gal[atians] 4:10), is tantamount to rejecting Christ (Gal[atians] 5:2–4; 2:21). How can Paul make such a derogatory claim about the Torah?
Contemporary NT scholars find it nearly impossible to imagine a zealous Second Temple Jew, and a Pharisee no less (Phil[lippians] 3:5–6; Gal[atians] 1:13–14), thinking about the Law in this way. Nevertheless, subordination of Mosaic Law is not entirely unknown in Second Temple Judaism. In a rather unique parallel, subordination of Mosaic Law also appears in 1 Enoch. In fact, there are a number of striking parallels between 1 Enoch, particularly the Book of Watchers (BW 1 En[och] 1–36), Jubilees, and Paul’s argument in Galatians 3–4. First, both 1 Enoch and Galatians subordinate the Torah as the pinnacle of revelation in similar ways. Second, there is a shared emphasis on the cosmic significance of transgressions in each text. Third, all three works are concerned with angels and their relationship to the structure of the cosmos. Tracing these parallels indicates that Paul’s argument about the role of the Law in Gal[atians] 3:19–4:11 is influenced by an Enochic etiology of evil.[i]
Two items in this excerpt capture our attention: the “cosmic significance of transgressions” and how that relates to seeing how the Enochian view of evil being connected to the Watchers influenced Paul’s thinking.
PART 12: ENOCH, THE WATCHERS, AND THE FORGOTTEN MISSION OF JESUS CHRIST—The Sin of the Watchers and the Head Covering of 1 Corinthians 11
1 Corinthians 11:2–16 is one of the most enigmatic passages in Paul’s letters. Paul’s discussion of women and public worship presents a number of exegetical challenges. With respect to the present study, one specific puzzling element of Paul’s thought will draw our attention—that women should have their heads covered “because of the angels” (1 Corinthians 11:10). Several interpretations have been offered in the long history of scholarship on this phrase and the passage as a whole. This entry will demonstrate that the most sensible alternative is that Paul had the sin of the Watchers and its supernatural reading of Genesis 6:1–4 in view.
Flawed Interpretive Options
1 Corinthians 11:2–16 reads as follows:
2Now I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I delivered them to you. 3But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. 4Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head, 5but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven. 6For if a wife will not cover her head, then she should cut her hair short. But since it is disgraceful for a wife to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her head. 7For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man. 8For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. 9Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10That is why a wife ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 11Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman; 12for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God. 13Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a wife to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair it is a disgrace for him, 15but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering. 16If anyone is inclined to be contentious, we have no such practice, nor do the churches of God. (ESV)
There are three primary scholarly proposals for what Paul is thinking with respect to his angelic warning. Loren Stuckenbruck, a scholar whose work focuses on the angelology and demonology of the New Testament and Second Temple Judaism, summarizes the options:[i]
PART 13: ENOCH, THE WATCHERS, AND THE FORGOTTEN MISSION OF JESUS CHRIST—The Sin of the Watchers and Baptism
Baptism is one of the most familiar practices in the local church. It’s so familiar, in fact, that it’s routine. The early church, however, associated it with the epic struggle between the children of God and the forces of darkness. This is why early baptismal formulas included a renunciation of Satan and his angels.[i] For early believers, baptism was spiritual warfare. The backdrop for this notion is the story of the sin of the Watchers in 1 Enoch. Perhaps that’s the reason baptism isn’t taught with this ancient perspective in mind.
Our discussion begins with 1 Peter 3:14–22, one of the more puzzling passages in the New Testament.
14 But even if you might suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not be afraid of their intimidation or be disturbed, 15 but set Christ apart as Lord in your hearts, always ready to make a defense to anyone who asks you for an accounting concerning the hope that is in you. 16 But do so with courtesy and respect, having a good conscience, so that in the things in which you are slandered, the ones who malign your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if God wills it, than for doing evil.
18 For Christ also suffered once for sins,
the just for the unjust,
in order that he could bring you to God,
being put to death in the flesh,
but made alive in the spirit,
19 in which also he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison,
20 who were formerly disobedient, when the patience of God waited in the days of Noah, while an ark was being constructed, in which a few—that is, eight souls—were rescued through water. 21 And also, corresponding to this, baptism now saves you, not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22 who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, with angels and authorities and powers having been subjected to him.
The overall theme of 1 Peter is that Christians must withstand persecution and persevere in their faith. That much is clear, but almost everything else in the passage has been subjected to heated academic debate.
Understanding this passage depends on comprehending two interrelated trajectories: (1) the notion of spirits being imprisoned, and (2) the literary-theological phenomenon of typology. We’ll consider them in order.
The FBI has found a gateway to declare Christians as criminals: federal whistleblower
The FBI has found a new gateway to declare Christians as criminals, a federal whistleblower said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
An internal document from the bureau’s Richmond, Virginia, field office allegedly vowed to spy on “radical traditionalist Catholics and their ideology.”
“They have found a gateway in what they think is fringe Catholicism in order to move into Christians in general and declare them to be the actual criminals in this country or the potential terrorists,” federal whistleblower and former FBI agent Kyle Seraphin said.
Seraphin said the document is antithetical to Catholicism and was written by someone who believes abortion rights must be upheld and the LGBTQ agenda “has to be pushed down the American people’s throats.”
Alarming Proportion Of Young People Embracing The Occult
A substantial proportion of young people are engaging in herbs and crystals as part of routine spiritual practices, according to a research firm that specializes in surveying youths. Springtide Research Institute told CBN’s Faithwire it found 44% of young people between the ages of 13 and 25 “engage with herbs/crystals as a spiritual practice.” Shockingly, 21% do so on a weekly basis. These results were found in the polling firm’s “State of Religion & Young People 2022” report, underscoring the reality that young people are finding alternative sources of religion and spirituality in an era of rampant secularism and less attachment to Judeo-Christian values. With culture skewing away from the faith, a vacuum is in its place, and young people are desperately looking to fill the holes…
Report From Rome Confirms Dr. Thomas Horn’s Upcoming ONE WORLD RISING Conference Presentation, Claims Pope Benedict Never Abdicated To Pope Francis And REAL Petrus Romanus Is Yet To Be Enthroned
In a previous article we demonstrated to you in a scientific and incontrovertible way how Pope Benedict XVI never abdicated and remained the only pope until the end of his life: he renounced the ministerium, the exercise of power, just as Benedict VIII did – exactly 1000 years earlier in 1013 – with the difference that Ratzinger did it in full power. This happened not by his own desire, but because of the fact that the cardinals, not having understood the Declaratio, convened another conclave behind his back, even though he had not abdicated. In this way they dethroned him and sent him into a “totally impeded see” (see canon 412). This is the only canonical situation, in fact, in which the pope may lose his ministerium while retaining his munus. In an impeded see, the pope remains pope and, if a new “pope” is elected, this man is an antipope. And so, his resignation of the exercise of power became “effective,” that is, factual, on 28 February 2013. But in reality there is a detail of historical significance that has been drawn to our attention only now thanks to the contribution of professor of history and religion Luca Brunoni… At the next messed-up “conclave,” with 81 false Bergoglian cardinals, these intellectuals and prelates will thus give us another antipope. But it doesn’t matter: “The Emperor has no clothes.” By now, the anti-Catholic antipope Francis has been unmasked, and as Saint Augustine said…
