If asked to find his church from among the following, namely; A) Roman Catholicism B) Christianity C) Orthodox Church D) Islam E) Judaism F) Iglesia ni Cristo, what will be the answer of the returning messiah? Of course, he is compelled to answer ‘none of the above’, even if, there is no such choice, as an answer.
It is because, those claiming to be the ‘Church’ are merely ‘rock‘, upon which the returning messiah will set up his own church. Notice that human nature, especially in gentiles and pagans, really makes it hard for laws of the Father to be instilled in their hearts and minds, as what was experienced in Israelites.
As of date of writing, January 23, 2018 , magnitude 7.9 earthquake is noted in 280 km SE of Kodiak, Alaska, magnitude 6.00 earthquake noted in 49 km S of Binuangeun, Indonesia, Mayon Volcano in Albay, Philippines is erupting, including the other eight volcanoes, namely, Fuego volcano in Guatemala, Karymsky in Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia, Dukono in Halmahera, Turrialba in Costa Rica, Sinabung in Sumatra, Indonesia, Sabancaya in Peru, Kadovar in Papua New Guinea and Sakurajima in Japan. So far, one death was noted in Japan. The earthquake in Alaska is also coupled with tsunami threat. which was already cancelled. Conclusively, the Pacific Ring of Fire is now very active. (more…)
Byzantine Emperor Constantine the Great is nicely featured by some writers as the first Emperor, who was Christianized and the one who stopped Christian persecution, which was brutally done by his predecessor Roman Emperor Diocletian. However, if Daniel 7 is thoroughly reviewed by relating it to history, it will show that he was actually the little horn prophesied in Daniel 7:8.
In Daniel 7:6, the third beast, which looks like a leopard, is described as having four wings and four heads, which was given authority to rule. It states:
6 “After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.
If Sabbath law is taken into account, who is the real author of Catholicism in particular and the present Christianity in general? Many will say that Jesus Christ is the moving force behind or the author. Could it really be true? With all due respect to Catholics and Christians, this can not be true, at all, because there was no Jesus name that ever existed when the messiah was here on earth. That being so, even if everybody would shout that the force behind these belief systems is him, it would simply fail because Jesus Christ is a fictitious entity who was just created by the bible.
Who is Jesus Christ by the way?
All those defending the name Jesus justify the name to have originated from Yeshua, which is an Aramaic name. However, assuming that said name is in Hebrew, which others claim to be, the theory of those defending the name to have originated from Aramaic or Hebrew does not deserve any merit because in so far as name is concerned, what applies is transliteration and not translation, when converting it from one language to another.
Transliteration is defined as follows:
Assuming that Jesus Christ is not a fictitious person that was just created by the Christian bible, even his knees will bow to ‘Yahushua’ upon hearing his name. This proposition is based on Philippians 2:10-11, which psychologically caused political uproar of the Roman Empire, when it was in power, thus, the empire changed the name of the Son into Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous) in Greek. It was changed in order to alleviate the fear of kneeling down upon hearing his name.
Notice also that the name of the Father in the old testament was changed when the Hebrew scripture was translated to Koine Greek, which finally resulted to English Lord as noted in Isaiah 42:8. Although, there were various translations from Hebrew to Greek, Septuagint translation prevailed and, based (more…)
Firmly and faithfully believing on the name Jesus as ‘The Christ’ is a sure way to hell. This proposition is based on the fact that the Greek name Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous), which is pronounced as ‘Yah-Zeus’ and origin of English name Jesus, was merely created by ancient Greek writers in 321 AD, when Emperor Constantine of the Roman Empire decreed the formation of Christianity.
Notably, under Emperor Constantine, Christianity was formed based on the combination of Hebrew and pagans’ belief that also combined the name of their respective God-YHWH and Zeus, which was adopted as the name of the messiah.
In their report, the The Nazarean Way Internet Ministry and The Essene-Nazarean Church of Mount Carmel in Missouri found out that the intention of adopting the Greek name Iēsous, as the name of Christ, was to peacefully unite the YHWH and Zeus believers. This is quoted as follows:
In other words, no matter the language spoken – Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, Greek, et. al. – “He is always called by the name ‘Iēsous,’” pronounced YaH-Zeus; He was never called the common Jewish names “Joshua,” “Yeshua,” or “Yehoshua.” His name is “Iēsous” and it identifies the members of just one Royal Family prominent in Jewish history.
How were Philo of Alexandria and the ancient bible writers deceived Christians? More specifically, how were they able to arrive at a Greek name Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous), which is the Greek origin of Jesus, as the alleged name of the messiah?
In a search for historical Iēsous and Mary Magdalene, The Nazarean Way Internet Ministry and The Essene-Nazarean Church of Mount Carmel in Missouri reported:
“In 2002 we spotted a clue in Luke’s Gospel: a Pythagorean Sacred Number. A simple Internet search for “First Century Pythagoreans” led to Philo of Alexandria whom Clement called “The Pythagorean.” Philo taught a method of biblical interpretation that was known to and practiced by the Essenes.
Fifteen years of Following Philo–pulling threads from ancient texts, inscriptions, marble busts, and other artifacts – led to the history hidden in myths and fictions. “The Nazarean and the Magdalene” were not what we expected – in fact, they are much better (more…)
Are you an anti-Christ if you reject Jesus Christ in your belief system? Or are you, in fact, an anti-Christ if you accept Jesus in your belief system? This issue is worth discussing because it relates to a prophetic event described in Matthew 22:2-14 or the ‘Parable of the Great Wedding Feast’ .
In the parable, the Kingdom of Heaven is being illustrated as like a king who prepared a great wedding feast for his son, where those invited all refused to come, despite the notices from the servants as the banquet is already ready. Matthew 22:2-14 (New International Version) states as follows:
2“The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.
3He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
4“Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’
5“But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to his business. 6The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and (more…)
Up against the proposition alleging that ‘Jesus is a fictitious name and therefore, Jesus Christ is a false Christ’, pro-Jesus proponents may also defend the falsehood in addition to other deceptive opinions by submitting the contrary proposition that: ‘The true Hebrew name of Christ is not critically needed in salvation, as the “saving truth’ of God could pass through another ordained or chosen man in addition to Jesus, who was allegedly ordained by God as the first Christ’.
Jesus refers to the extraordinary man born immaculately and ordained by God to be the first Christ (or Messiah) to deliver God’s Truth (Word) to humanity. Therefore, while Jesus’ life and messages/teachings are divine and relevant to man’s salvation, as these are wholly from the Father, Jesus, being merely a Spirit-filled man who fully expressed the will, wisdom, word and authority of God, should never be the center of devotion. Christ is not an exclusive reference to Jesus, as it is the condition wherein any ordained or chosen man (even to the present time) is filled with God’s Spirit (Word) for the purpose of delivering God’s “Saving Truth” to humanity. Christ is the omnipotence and omnipresence of the ONENESS in God. If one is Christ (more…)
In the second article, The Living Bible (TLB) translation of 2 Corinthians 3:6 concerning the “old way of trying to be saved by keeping the Ten Commandments of God as the biblical way that ends in death” was noted to be erroneous. It was also held that TLB had in fact interpreted the verse instead of merely translating it from Greek to English version, which is an error in itself.
Further, in the third article, it was held that there is no significant difference in the translation of the same verse between the “letter killeth” in King James Version (KJV) and American Standard Version (ASV) and the “written text that brings death” in International Standard Version (ISV). It was concluded that they are substantially the same.
Now, we will proceed to the proposition on how this letter kills or the written text brings death by focusing first on the phrase ‘x x x ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit x x x‘ (2 Corinthians 3:6, KJV) and ‘x x x ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit x x x ‘ (2 Corinthians 3:6, ASV).
Notably, above phrase states the two categories of ministers such as: 1) ministers of the letter and 2) ministers of the spirit. Obviously, a spirit is an entity, so, therefore, the letter is likewise an entity, if you follow (more…)
