Personal Freedom

Personal Freedom

Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17
You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. 1 Corinthians 7:23
I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever, in religion, in philosophy, in politics or in anything else, where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent.. – Thomas Jefferson Letter To Francis Hopkinson, Paris Mar. 13, 1789i
"Under the law of nature, all men are born free, every one comes into the world with a right to his own person, which includes the liberty of moving and using it at his own will. This is what is called personal liberty, and is given him by the Author of nature, because necessary for his own sustenance." --Thomas Jefferson: Legal Argument, 1770.
"What is true of every member of the society, individually, is true of them all collectively; since the rights of the whole can be no more than the sum of the rights of the individuals." --Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 1789.
In my opinion there has been no one who has advocated personal freedom in world like Thomas Jefferson about whom Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia states :
Jefferson, Thomas (1743-1826), third president of the United States (1801-1809) and author of the Declaration of Independence. He was one of the most brilliant men in history. His interests were boundless, and his accomplishments were great and varied. He was a philosopher, educator, naturalist, politician, scientist, architect, inventor, pioneer in scientific farming, musician, and writer, and he was the foremost spokesman for democracy of his day.
Thomas Jefferson lived and fought for personal freedom and rights of each individual and so should we. Although Jesus Christ has made believers kings and priests to His God and Father, (Revelations 1:6, 5:10) many including leadership in the house of God have a demonic inspired idea that they were called to rule over the sheep. But we have no king or priest over us except Jesus Christ the LORD. He is our only LORD, King and Priest.
Unfortunately down through the years we have run into many pastors who had a hidden agenda of taking care for number one and didn‘t have the best interests of the sheep. Rather than being a servant like Jesus and laying down their lives for the sheep they actual took the lives of the sheep especially their hard earned money and talents and spent it all on themselves and their families.
Most of these kinds of pastors were very good talkers, knew more about the bible than their sheep, were friends of other pastors who did the same thing that they did and would not disclose their salaries and those of their family members. They believed they were only accountable to God and no other even though their money didn‘t come from God but from the sheep! As a result I don‘t trust most pastors be they on TV or in a local church! God‘s word is unchanging:
I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, does not receive us. Therefore, if I come, I will call to mind his deeds which he does, prating against us with malicious words. And not content with that, he himself does not receive the brethren, and forbids those who wish to, putting them out of the church. Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God. Demetrius has a good testimony from all, and from the truth itself. And we also bear witness, and you know that our testimony is true. 3 John 1:9-12
Spiritual abuse is very common in churches in North America and British Isles by those whose spiritual authority doesn‘t come from God but is their own invention. Due to insecurity the leader uses his religious position to control or dominate another person and uses negative words and actions to bring about submission both doctrinal and physical.
Many leaders spend a lot of time focusing on their own authority and reminding others of it because they cannot demonstrate authority, spiritual power, and credibility by their lives and message. They believe that the members are there to meet the needs of the leader and not the reverse! It‘s very stupid to simply receive and act upon a spiritual directive because you are ‗supposed to be submissive‘, or because someone is ‗in authority.‘ God alone is our Lord and to Him we give account and not to a mortal men who are here today and gone tomorrow. The clergy was not created to rule over the laity.
Any leadership that advocates a particular doctrine or view point to remain in good standing with the particular religious group is dangerous to our spiritual health and physical sanity. And when they restore to ‗scare tactics‘ or intimidation of any sort such as ― The Lord told me things about you or ―God will curse you if you leave our group they are deceived ones deceiving others. Any group that practices publicly shaming, exposing, or threatening to remove people from the group is already defeated and is part of Satan‘s army. Mind you I have known people who have ‗removed‘ for asking too many questions, for disobeying the unspoken rules, or for disagreeing with authority. Yes, people are made public examples in order to send a message to those who remain. But God‘s word is unchanging:
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom. Proverbs 10:21
In Burlington, Ontario, Canada, Park Bible Church was a very rich and large church of 1,000 members in a beautiful expense structure situated on the hill overlooking the city that could be seen by everybody. It was composed of bible-believing Christians who loved the Lord and were active in witnessing and helping their community. But the Pastor became abusive and totalitarian. Deacons and many others members were asked to leave when they confronted the pastor about his specific idiosyncrasies. As a result, many people were
deeply hurt; the church membership went down to 300 and the pastor moved back to the States.
In January 2004, the churches in the area were asked to meet and pray at Park Bible Church for reconciliation and healing as many people were scared and disillusioned in the church. The sad part was that it was one of the richest churches in the community with very educated and rich members in it and still it was not exempt from the abuses of a benevolent dictator, the senior pastor. The tragedy is that many abusive pastors don‘t see that they are abusive even though the ―Policy Manual of Carpenter‘s Home Church, Lakeland, Florida, written by the senior pastor stated:
A congregation must be a planting of the Lord not a secular military base with a benevolent dictator. All Contact with the Public or with employees must reflect the philosophy of the administrator or the Senior Pastor, as he understands the character of Jesus (Page 15, Summary)
Just because a pastor is well educated (Bob Jones University) and well versed in scriptures like Senior Pastor Karl Strader, who personally picked and fired his board of directors at will, was, doesn‘t mean he wasn‘t abusive or dictatorial. (Mind you the CHC which once had around five thousand members and was built for ten thousand now doesn't belong any more to Karl Strader.)
The religious and political leaders of Jesus day were quite educated but Jesus still called them fools and blind ones (Matthew 23:17,19). In other words just because a man is educated doesn‘t mean he is not a fool especially if he doesn‘t acknowledge that ―The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.
Unfortunately for them even many of God‘s people are fools because they despise wisdom and instruction from others. They feel their special position as pastor, preacher, church leader, choir member or church usher has made above reproach and they are accountable to no one but God. Dietrich Bonhoeffer put his finger on one of the greatest dangers to the modern society including the church.
Every personality cult that is concerned with important qualities, outstanding abilities, strengths, and the talents of someone else—even though these may be thoroughly spiritual in nature—is worldly and has no place in the Christian community. Indeed, it poisons that community. The demand one hears so often today for . . . ―powerful personalities springs too often from the spiritually sick need for the admiration of people, for the erection of visible structures of human authority, because the genuine authority of service seems too unimportant (Life Together, p. 108).
The Word of God encourages us to have the attitude in ourselves Christ Jesus had including that nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind we are each to esteem others better than ourselves. And we are to look out not only for our own interests, but also for the interests of others. God‘s word is unchanging:
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in
Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 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.
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:1-11
Many seek the ruler's favor, But justice for man comes from the LORD. Proverbs 29:26
Jesus wasn't predictable. He didn't ask His disciples to sacrifice their wages to build a bigger house for Himself, nor did He merely talk a good line. He healed blind eyes and withered limbs, and raised the dead. He walked on water and calmed stormy seas. Over and over, in so many ways, He showed Himself worthy of a following--not just by talking about faith and self-sacrifice and the endtimes, but by the miracles He did. He proved He was God's sacrifice for our sins when, after voluntarily allowing Himself to be nailed to an executioner's cross, He rose bodily from the dead to show that He was King of kings and Lord of lords. As part of His legacy, He left a band of disciples who were willing to live and die for their testimony that together they had seen Him alive after His resurrection. Together they bore witness to One whose teaching and example has become the measure of those who are dangerous and those who are not. ii
Spiritual abuse is quite common in many churches in America. When spiritual abuse takes place in any congregation it is time to go. No one should ever be spiritually abused. We all know of pastors who abuse and we know a lot of pastors who are emotionally and spiritually abused by congregations. And many righteous ones with the wisdom that God has given them have protested about spiritual abuse and the rights of the sheep such as Rev. Jack Cascione, The Voters' Assembly Is Invested With Authority from God, who stated:
'Thus writes St. Paul (1 Cor. 3:21-23): ‗Therefore let no one glory in men. For all things are yours: whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come-all are yours. And you are Christ's and Christ is God's.' From this [passage] we learn that all things that even Paul and Peter had were only treasures from the jewel room of the believing Christians or of the church." ("Church and Ministry" C.F.W. Walther, 1851, CPH 1982, page 50)
"However, this equality of believers is abrogated and the church is changed into a secular organization if a minister demands obedience not only to the Word of Christ, his one Lord and Head and that of all Christians, but also to what his own insight and experience regard as good and suitable. As soon, therefore, as adiaphora or things indifferent, that is things that are neither commanded nor forbidden in God's Word, come in question in the church, a minister may never demand absolute obedience to what merely appears to him to be best" ("Church and Ministry" C.F.W. Walther, 1851, CPH 1982, page 312)
"It follows from these statements of Scripture that the congregation of believers enjoys a sovereignty under Christ which are not to be restricted or limited in any way. Christians may not be made subject to a minister or a priest, because they are all ministers and priests in their own right who have the privilege of approaching God directly. " ("The Abiding Word", Alfred von Rohr Sauer, Volume III, CPH 1947 page 306)
"As such they (congregations) possessed all the gifts and rights of the Church which Christ has bestowed upon it. Specifically, the function of the Christian congregation is to
administer the means of grace in its midst and to serve in this world for the conversion of the sinner to God. This is nothing else than the administration of the keys of the Kingdom. (Matt. 18:17-20; "Tell it to the church"; Matt. 16:19, John 20:22-23, "Whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.")....The church, therefore functions as the administrator of the office of the keys of the Kingdom." ("The Abiding Word", Richard Klan, Volume III, CPH 1947 page 383)
Yes, Christians may not be made subject to a minister or a priest, because they are all ministers and priests in their own right who have the privilege of approaching God directly. Apostle Paul taught that ―there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. 1 Corinthians 12:25-27). In other words in the eyes of God and in the words of Jesus we are all brethren and no one except the Lord has the right to rule over another Christian. Chuck Swindoll, author, pastor, seminary president, once talked about the six traps in ministry including Authoritarianism, Exclusiveness, Greed, Rationalization, Sensuality and Unaccountability:
1)Authoritarianism is the lack of a servant‘s heart. This is when the leadership has gone wild with a tyrannical, oppressive pride. Don‘t suppress God‘s people. Respect them and encourage them to be all God wants them to be. Don‘t abuse God‘s people. Christ is Lord, not the pastor or anyone else in His church.
2) Exclusiveness is the ―I (or we) alone are all right. ―Only we have the truth, or the best program. It constantly stresses the idea that we are the only people God uses. No one else is as good, doctrinally correct, blessed of God, filled with the Spirit, etc. God has blessed me, or our group as the elite Christians. The emphasis is on our distinctiveness, denominational pride, selective doctrine, a special revelation or anointing from God, etc. The leader promotes a clannish, cultic following, clicks, etc. The truth is in God‘s grace there are no favorites. God does not play favorites with anyone. We are saved by grace alone. There are no second-class citizens in the Kingdom of God.
3) Greed is the money crazy theme. How much do you harp on money? What is your motive? Even building yourself a name for a church with a big budget falls prey to this abuse. As a pastor I don‘t handle money. Let someone else do it. The church assigns a group of people to count the money, the treasurer writes the checks and an audit committee checks the books. Don‘t even find out who gives the most or how frequently they give in your church. How do you handle money that people hand to you and say use it were the greatest need is? Do you continue asking for money after you know you have all the funds you need for a certain project?
4) Rationalization is the effort to justify wrong with a defensive spirit. Are you quick to gloss over personal sin, make excuses or lie about it? Are you over emphasizing or underemphasizing some area of purity? What areas and why?
5) Sensuality is how I handle sex. Treat all women in all purity. Stay away from any compromise or even the smell of smoke. Don‘t become too familiar with the opposite sex, or your own sex. Stay away from all appearance of evil. Live a pure life.
6) Unaccountability is the idea I answer only to God and no one else. As a pastor and a member of my church I am always accountability to someone. I am accountable to the deacons, the deacons are accountable to the church, and the church is accountable to one another. Beware of the secretive, ―I am accountable only to God and I answer to no one else. No one is above accountability. Receive the confrontation of friends and mentors and remind yourself that only observed behavior changes.
The apostle in Philippians 2:5-11 is stressed the remedy to spiritual abuse in modern society. His emphasis was on the character of God that is seen in selfless service and
obedience to Christ and others. Jesus Christ is our perfect example of obedient service. His attitude runs counter to the human tendency to dominate and control others for personal gain. ―Think in this way, Paul says, ―just as Jesus Christ thought in this way. That is the best safeguard we can have in the way we handle life. Follow the example of Christ‘s selflessness, humility and obedience. On various occasions Paul has used Christ‘s behavior as an example for believers‘ lifestyle (Rom. 15:3-9; 2 Cor. 8:9; Eph. 5:1-2; Col. 3:3ff; 1 Tim. 6:13-16). Paul normally puts the emphasis on living the Christian life in the believer‘s union with Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 6:1-14; 1 Cor.6:11-20; Col. 3:1-4; Rom. 8:1-17; Gal. 2:16-20; 5:16-26). But here he tells us not only to imitate the model of Christ. But ―Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. We need to yield and submit to Christ and the wonderful Holy Spirit daily so that the life of Christ might be lived out through us and not our life.
J. Hudson Taylor English missionary to China and founder of the China Inland Mission made the English term "exchanged life" popular through his testimony of how God made him a new man. (Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret, page 154.) The word "exchanged" is used to signify that God has made it possible for us to exchange our total insufficiency to live the Christian life for Christ's total sufficiency to live it through us. He did this by exchanging our old identity in Adam for our new identity in Christ and by uniting our newborn spirit with His (I Corinthians 6:17; Galatians 2:20). The term "exchanged life" is related to the believer's discovery of his identity in Christ: that is he is a new creation, one born of God, that he is not what he was before. It is time that we rediscover and practice the truth that ―I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Yes, we are to let Christ live His life in and through us and we will not be foolish ones who die for lack of wisdom. God‘s word is unchanging:
I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the Word of God, the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily. Colossians 1:24-29

The Fall of Jerusalem

The Fall of Jerusalem

Mark 11:17 - 19

And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. And when even was come, he went out of the city.
Mat 21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Luke 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel
Since God is sovereign and the New Testament was written in Greek and Aramaic according to his will and not in Hebrew. Could not have God writtten the New Testament rather in Hrebrew and why did he not.? Why? it is cause He got rid of the old covenant and made a new covenant that wasn't not Jewish anymore.. that included now the gentiles..
A relationship with God is not like watching the TV.. you do not choose and pick what Channels to watch, or to follow.. the relationship is more like using a phone, a 2 way conversation.. you talk and listen. I too once was praying for a house, car, job, money but God rather was trying to tell me to go to the Hospital cause I seriously needed medical care.. in fact I needed heart surgery, and I often get prayer requests, demands even from people for money, etc., and seems the only time they contact me and God is when they need or want something.. that is not real Christianity.. God says His ways are not our ways.. Seek God and get His will, help and not man’s help..
No where in the New Testament does it now say, "Want to be a better Christian? Become a Jew, Observe Old Testament laws, Study the Old Testament, Help the Jews get back their once promsied land.. or that the Jews should return to Israel afer God had kicked them out the second time.. rather the New Testament does says follow after Jesus Christ, and be now filled wiht the Holy Spirit
SALVATION still is only by the finsihed work of the lord Jesus Christ!!
(Mat 27:51 KJV) And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
(Luke 23:45 KJV) And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
(2 Cor 3:14 KJV) But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ.
(2 Cor 3:15 KJV) But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
In the Bible, the New testament book of Galatians, we see that Apostle Paul exprssed a full concern about a group of people who were attempting to pull the Galatian Christians back into legalism and the Law. These people were Judaizers.
In Galatians 1:6-10, Paul said: 6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned! 10 Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.
If All of the Aportles now l came out from under the Law, who do we think we are to go back under it? as Aposltel Paul said in Galatians:
1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort (Galatians 3:1-3)
Beware of those eveil people who say, think you have to go back under the Law to find a deeper place in Christ. Let's not replace the Presence of God with ritual and ceremony. It's not what He wants for us. Beware.
First do notice how quickly the Jewish lovers next do go into a rage and threathen you with judgement cause you do not agree with them and use your right of free speech to do so.
Today’s Jews are are too quick to associate with the Promised Land of Joshua’s time. However, as per the conditions of the Bible , the New Testament and even the establishment of the State of Israel by the United Nations in 1948 it now raises many valid questions about that relationship validity.
Still the state of Israel is big enough for both the Jews and Muslims to live together in peace too. So do all grow up and smarten up up. (Psa 133:1 KJV) Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity
I really get sick every time I hear preachers such as John Hagee and Jerry Falwell demonize the Arab people, while glorifying the Jews.
Too many fundamentals, professing Christians now falsely do that the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was prophesied in Scripture while there is no direct support of this in the New Testament Bible even still. Zionism, on the other hand, “is a secularist, largely atheistic ideology” that emerged in the late 19th century. God still does not require the human input to fulfill his own prophecies. Now too many Christian Zionists, extremists do falsely do now believe that in order to fulfill all of the Biblical prophecy, Israel must next conquer most of the Middle East.
And anyone watched the mostly self centered, get richer TV evangelists such as a Pat Robertson or John Hagee and their distorted sermons scenarios involving the future “Rapture,” Jesus Christ and also Israel, should also quickly firstly now realize that these false prophets are not only fleecing, scaring their flock to give more money but falsely are into worshipping the false idol of Israel.
.John Hagee pays himself over a million dollars a year in TAX FREE money while having several palaces to live in, like the $2.1 million 7,969-acre ranch outside Brackettville, Texas , with five lodges, including a “main lodge” and a gun locker.;
Once considered a small marginal doctrine among evangelicals, the false dispensationalist theology of Christian Zionism has greatly escalated, ironically falsely with the help of jess, Messianic Jews, Judaizers and many others too.
The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard (Matt 21:33-43) clearly shows that the Christian Church totally now rather succumbs all of the past promises made to Israel. Be careful about accepting anyone’s word about Christian Zionism do first read the Bible, New Testament for yourself and know the truth rather.
” Those who question the legitimacy of Israel’s actions are immediately labelled anti-Semitic by some quarters, effectively undermining the turn of phrase by using it in this context.
We are right to question the state of Israel’s actions and I am not anti-Semitic for doing so. I think the religious fundamentalism exhibited by certain Zionist and Orthodox Jewish groups needs to be dealt with in a similar manner to Islamic fundamentalism, I don’t see the distinction between the two, both are equally repulsive. ”
Jews will always be far from any right to the the promise land because of all their own unrepentant SINS, ACTS, even the blood shed of many others that they have killed from generations to generation even the shed blood of Jesus. (Mat 23:38 KJV) Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Firstly any one who looks at the subject of prophecy, a real genuine Bible student knows that too many Jews ,who can only use the old testament, and there is almost no new testament substantiation for it, still the Jews, and many others have wrongfully now Distorted Biblical Prophecy Interpretation after the time of Jesus Christ to suit their false Jewish’s ends, a Jewish purpose, for they like Judas they betray Jesus Christ by these acts for Jesus next made it clear the second Jewish Kingdom of God was not in this world.. (John 18:36 KJV) Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
And the false Jewish supporters can solely refer to the Old Testament verses now such as Jeremiah Chapter 31, Joel 3:2, Amos 9:15 and Psalm 83: for they undeniably have no New Testament substantiations, support for Israel’s return or possession now of the past promised land.
And as we all do know the main temple in Jerusalem was fully destroyed to the ground in 70 AD by the Romans, as well as all of the temple records there in, so no one any longer can validate his Jewish ancestry or birth rights even.
The chief identifying mark of the false Judiazers is their full or partial observance of sthe Jewish laws such as the celebration of festivals and the Sabbath, studying heavily the Jewish Scriptures, and keeping certain Jewish feasts. Note these people aresome of the most divisive, legalistic, demonic led. Thesre are here also the so called believers in Yeshua who rant and rave about the church being pagan, and Pentecostals being demonic, and the Christians are not keeping the Sabbath and not following the Torah. They don't want to be called Christians, they don't believe in our Jesus . Real Christian do not keep the sabbath any more and they do not follow the Torah
The Judiazers are the ones still headed to hell, for they do not believe that Christ alone saves, but they believe that they do like Cain, do need to play a role in their own salvation. Some they are Like the Christian Jews in the Book of Hebrews who received the truth but falsely continued to make sacrifices, trusting in their own sacrifices for their personal salvation, the judiazers basically do still count Christ's blood as an "unholy thing," - for they do not believe is is mighty enough to save them itself. Judaizers they are slap to the face to Christ our Lord and Saviour.We are initially saved through the finished work of Jesus Christ and not by our own works, but through God's GRACE but we are kept as Christians by our own free will!
We are not talking about Jewish people who sccept Jesus Christ also as their lord and Savior abd become true Christians.
There are generally are 4 false groups among the false Judaizers:
1 Jewish Christians
2 Gentile Judaizing Christians
3 Confused God-fearers
4 Messianic Judaizers

-The Jewish Christians were Jews who believed in Jesus, yet continued to observe Jewish law.
-The Judaizing Christians group consisted of Gentile Christians who have faalsely adopted certain aspects of Jewish law; some of them had observed certain Jewish practices prior to their conversion (to Christianity) because of their false attraction to these customs.
- Others had not kept any Jewish rites before becoming Christian
*** The reason for their errors is clear, they have not yet fully turbed to the Lord Jesus Christ
(2 Cor 3:16 KJV) Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
(Heb 10:20 KJV) By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Rev 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
Rev 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
For all of the Jewish believers in the shed blood of the Messiah Jesus Christ, a normative Judaism is nothing short of spiritual adultery. In Romans we are told that we were made to die to the Law in order to be joined to (married to) the Messiah Jesus Christ. “Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, that we might bear fruit for God.” Romans 7:4 And the context is that of a woman who is married, i.e. she cannot (legitimately) be joined to two different husbands, except that one be dead. We are NOT our own savior, so let’s allow Jesus to be our sole Savior and let’s leave the false religions, even Judaism to the world. “Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses. “Take heed therefore, so that the thing spoken of in the Prophets may not come upon you… ‘Behold, you scoffers, and marvel, and perish; For I am accomplishing a work in your days, A work which you will never believe, though someone should describe it to you.’” Acts 13:38, 41
“For many walk of whom I often told you and now tell you even weeping that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction whose god is their appetite and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things.” Philippians 3:18,19
It is a realy sad fact, in spite of the fact they may use some of the same words other real Christians do now, that too many professing Christians who claim they love God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, in reality they are still not filled with the Holy Spirit even cause they have rejected the fullness of the Holy Spirit, and his gifts being applicable today, they now falsely have limited the Gospel as being Jesus the Savior only and they wrongfully do not teach the full Gospel of Jesus the Christ now as well…. and they falsely emphasize the usage of Greek and the teaching of men, such as Darby, Scofield, over the Holy Spirit teaching us directly.. and those amongst them who do this they all basically do not have the Holy Spirit, are actually deceived, are now none of His.. They realy are still unsaved thus.
Now the Law of Moses was great while it lasted. But it had a failing; it couldn’t make any of us free from all things. It is ONLY through Jesus Himself the Person, the God/man Christ Jesus and His work on the cross that we can be set free. Observing the Law itself now cannot do it for us. “For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them.’ ” Galatians 3:10 “And I said to their children in the wilderness, ‘Do not walk in the statutes of your fathers, or keep their ordinances, or defile yourselves with their idols.” (Ezekiel 20:18) And again in verse 25, “And I gave them statutes that were not good and ordinances by which they could not live.”
There are major unacceptable New testament, Biblical. theological differences between Messianic Jews and the true Christians, the true believers.. Forwe need to recognize that God doesn’t favor one culture above another. “Jewish culture” is not only foreign to most Jews, it is also foreign to God. in Reality Judaism (and all cultural religions for that matter) looks to be like serving God, but they are not for they do robs us of the opportunity to bond with God, to speak to Him, to know Him, to love Him, to serve on God’s own terms. The teaching of the Pharisees (Judaism) itself is poisonous for all believers. Either we have Jesus and His life, or we have something else and we die. “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8
Messianic Jews they have not made the necessary step to cross over to worship Jesus as their Lord amd Savior directly yet as well ,even because they have not taken up their cross, forsaken all to follow after Jesus as well, for being a Christian believer in Israel isn’t easy for you always feel that the rest of Jewish society isn’t accepting you. It should be understood by all that all Jews still need to be saved from their sins, Hell itself by accepting Jesus Christ as their Personal lord, Savior, and any of their Jewish cultural roots will not save them.
(Mat 23:37 KJV) O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
The New Israel is the Church.. which is now MADE UP with the old Israel.. It may surprise you to discover that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. It is only used of those who follow Jesus.

"Did Jesus pray for the people He upended and scourged as He walked through the temple? No. How come Jesus didn't pray for and bless His enemies?

Jesus as the Chief Apostle and Prophet, judged the false ones of His day and He publicly did not say nice things about them but told them that their end would be worse than their beginning. He told them they were hypocrites, blind guides, serpents, brood of vipers, and lawless ones, who would not escape the condemnation of hell and there would be a day of judgment for them. He told them,"Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, "that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. (Matthew 23:34) And because God was with Him, God would honor His words and they would not fall to the ground. The Jewish religious and political leaders of Jesus day along with their followers would not escape the condemnation of hell in the speedy ensuring judgments that followed in 70 AD for whatsoever a man sows so shall He reap! Flavius Josephus in writing about “The Siege of Jerusalem, AD 70” testified:
Throughout the city people were dying of hunger in large numbers, and enduring unspeakable sufferings. In every house the merest hint of food sparked violence, and close relatives fell to blows, snatching from one another the pitiful supports of life. No respect was paid even to the dying; the ruffians [anti-Roman zealots] searched them, in case they were concealing food somewhere in their clothes, or just pretending to be near death. Gaping with hunger, like mad dogs, lawless gangs went staggering and reeling through the streets, battering upon the doors like drunkards, and so bewildered that they broke into the same house two or three times in an hour. Need drove the starving to gnaw at anything. Refuse which even animals would reject was collected and turned into food. In the end they were eating belts and shoes, and the leather stripped off their shields. Tufts of withered grass were devoured, and sold in little bundles for four drachmas.

There is a real price to be paid for rejecting truth and doing injustice, even in the current time of life, as the people of Jerusalem who murdered Jesus could testify. By 66 AD Life in Jerusalem had become a nightmare, it was so full of violence and misery. Famine and food shortages become an everyday problem.

Then in 70 AD Titus marched against the city with four legions of the Roman army. They laid siege to Jerusalem and using their battering rams they breached the walls of the city. Fleeing citizens of Jerusalem were caught by the Romans and were tortured and crucified. Later the whole city was destroyed and the people of Jerusalem paid the price for ignoring Jesus warning about what would happen to them. These kinds of things do happen even in the current time of life!

TITUS now promised that the Temple should be spared if the defenders would come forth and fight in any other place, but John and the Zealots refused to surrender it. For several days the outer cloisters and outer court were attacked with rams, but the immense and compact stones resisted the blows. As many soldiers were slain in seeking to storm the cloisters, Titus ordered the gates to be set on fire. Through that night and the next day the flames raged through the cloisters. Then, in order to save the Temple itself, he ordered the fire to be quenched. On the tenth of August, the same day of the year on which Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Temple built by Solomon, the cry was heard that the Temple was on fire. The Jews, with cries of grief and rage, grasped their swords and rushed to take revenge on their enemies or perish in the ruins.
The slaughter was continued while the fire raged. Soon no part was left but a small portion of the outer cloisters, where 6,000 people had taken refuge, led by a false prophet who had there promised that God would deliver His people in His Temple. The soldiers set the building on fire and all perished. Titus next spent eighteen days in preparations for the attack on the upper city, which was then speedily captured. And now the Romans were not disposed to display any mercy, night alone putting an end to the carnage. During the whole of this siege of Jerusalem, 1,100,000 were slain, and the prisoners numbered 97,000. "

too am a Gentile grafted into the branches of the fig tree that was symbol of the Jewish People.. the Jews were once God's chosen people...
But you do not put old wine into new basket Jesus said.. but you put the new wine into containers too.. so the Old has been superseded by the New Testament.
Only those who believe in the Son of man...there can be Good Arabs, good Americans...etc... No one goes to the Father except through me...Jesus said. He is the sole and ultimate Sacrifice.. the only way to God for everyone..
but there is no promised return of Israel by Jesus Christian Zionists fail to recognize how Jesus universalizes the land promise made in Psalm 37. “But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace.”
there is no new testament verse substantiating thaw present jewie return to the land of Israel. and if you do believe otherwise it rather shows how little you know of Jesus and the whole Bible too.. go and study it rightfully too..
The true Biblical scholar can note all of the major, essential Christian doctrines have been repeated by Jesus or the apostles in the New Testament. Zionism, the reestablishment of the nation of Israel, with Jerusalem as it’s capital is not one of them. When Christianity became a formal, legal religion in the fourth century, Churches throughout the world agreed on which books should form the New Testament, and they agreed on several basic statements of faith. One of the doctrinal lists created was the Apostles’ Creed, the Creed was an accurate summary of what the apostles taught. It too does not mention Zionism. Nor does the Nicene creed. Nor many others. So the present support of Zionism by many Christians is not a true, valid Christian teaching. Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’ (Mt. 4:4,7,10 ) not your own gospel now too..

Christian Zionists falsely now contrary to the New Testament do support the rebuilding of the nation of Israel, Jerusalem as the center of Worship, and the rebuilding of the Temple. Since the Christian Zionism error is because they follow a literal and futurist reading of the Old Testament, which plus their false refusal to acknowledge how Jesus and the Apostles reinterpreted the Old Testament, with a false assumption that Old and New Testament run at times parallel into the future, the former speaking of Israel and the latter of the Church. This is at variance with the way the New Testament interprets, fulfills, annuls and completes the Old. For example, “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.” (Acts 10:34-35). If God does not show favoritism, the Jews cannot an longer presume to enjoy a favored or exclusive status. By calling this covenant "new," he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear. (Hebrews 8:13). The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming-- not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship (Hebrews 10:1) It is fundamental that all persons, Zionist and Christians, do read the Scriptures solely with Christian eyes, and that they interpret the Old Covenant in the light of the New Covenant, not the other way round. Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. (Colossians. 2:16-17) This is the most basic hermeneutical error which Christian Zionists consistently repeat is illustrated in the way Christian Zionists continue to regard the Jews as God’s ‘chosen people’ and clearly which is no longer true.
The Jews Remain God’s ‘Chosen People’ was falsely first propounded by the Plymouth Brethren dispensationalist preacher Darby, his implicit assumption is that the Jews continue to enjoy a special covenant relationship with God apart from through Jesus Christ. This contradicts John the Baptist and Jesus own clear and unambiguous statements to the contrary. “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, `We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire." (Luke 3:8-9) "Abraham is our father," they answered. "If you were Abraham's children," said Jesus, "then you would do the things Abraham did... You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire.” (John 8:39, 44) "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) ‘Anyone who does not listen to him (Christ) will be completely cut off from among his people.’ (Acts 3:23)
Jesus and the apostles repudiated the notion that the Jews continued to enjoy a special status or relationship apart from faith in Jesus as their Messiah. And now 'chosenness' is the gift of God's grace in Jesus Christ to all who trust in Him, irrespective of their racial origins. In the New Testament and the term is never used exclusively of the Jewish people, apart from as members of the Church. Jesus Christ is the ‘chosen’ one. Indeed in the New Testament the term is always used to refer to the Church, the Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:11).Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12) But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10) It is therefore no longer appropriate to designate the Jews as God’s ‘chosen people’. The term has been redefined to describe all those who trust in Jesus Christ.
(Song 2:16 KJV) My beloved ( JESUS) is mine, and I am his:
(Song 2:8 KJV) The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
2 Chr 15:2 The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.
The People with an empty, imposturous Christian spiritual life generally still turn to a simplified Old Testament version gospel, practice and not a real New Testament based Gospel for they even turn to idolatry to wrongfully try to compensate for their definite void, guilt feelings, their failure to reach, acquire a deeper Holy Sprit led, filled, spiritual life in Christ…. They practice idolatry instead and now falsely promote, do encourage the worship of men, prophecy, creeds, denominations, history, doctrines, things, places, books, videos, rather most anyhting over solely worshipping now God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus. The devil leads them into this. Truly Jesus Christ does not talk to ythem and they never were fully baptized with the holy spirit as many of us here were..
Luk 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: :2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. :4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
