THE DEVIL USES MANY PEOPLE TO TRY TO CONFUSE US WITH HIS FALSE DOCTRINES
.
A person does not need to know Hebrew and Greek linguistics in order to be spiritual; And the lost going to hell Jews,  Messianic Jews, Seventh Day Adventists, Mormon and the Jehovah witnesses cults falsely they still do not recognize Jesus Christ fully as the sole Lord, Savior, God,   https://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2015/01/24/keep-your-eyes-on-jesus-not-the-jewish-antichrist-yeshua/
.
Jesus was responsible for the cessation of the Jewish religious practices. Jesus was the first “Christian,” who had come to announce the end of the Torah and Judaism, of Israel as well.  Jesus simply came to fulfill Messianic prophecies contained in the Jewish scriptures, and not to Continue his once Jewishness.
.
Luke 16:16: “The law and the prophets were in effect until John came; since then the good news of the kingdom of God is proclaimed, and everyone tries to enter it by force.” Thus the proclamation of the good news of the kingdom of God marks  a new phase in  Jewish history, which is Christianity. The kingdom of God is  proclaimed in Luke-Acts at the expense of the  Jews, Jewish Torah.
 .
No Jewish person in Acts embraces more the past perpetuation of Torah observance like Apostle Paul. Paul had attended  the synagogue on the Sabbath (13:14–15; 14:1, etc.), kept the Jewish festivals such as Shavuot/Pentecost (20:16) and Yom Kippur (27:9), went  to the temple in Jerusalem and had partaken  in its rituals (21:24), affirms his past  fidelity to the Torah and Jewish customs (28:17), and even circumcises Timothy (16:3)! And yet he too  next had gave it all up to be a follower solely of Jesus Christ .
.
Personal Salvation, for all by Jesus Christ  is  achieved without observing the precepts of the Torah that had exclusively applied  only to the Jewish people and which laws they were never able to keep in full  as well. So why would they want to put Christians under these false bondages?
.

Many people are not blessed by God cause they are part time Christians and not full time Christians.. as one cannot serve 2 masters.. Matthew 6: 24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.

.
  Now when the Lord Jesus Christ, El-Elyon does not hold the highest position in your life, as God, Who is Creator of us all, he understands when we fail him and when we turn or mind and heart from him to mere false things, we need to turn still again back to Him – when we confess the sin – He El-Elyon is ready to forgive your failing. When you return ‘the most high place’ to Jesus Christ, the El-Elyon , the Lord and Savior and who again sits on the throne of your life, your relationship with Him Jesus, God, returns to the perfect place it was meant to be. He Jesus Christ is the Lord Most High. He is the El-Elyon.
.
El-Elyon is only one of the names for God. Elyon is also used by some to refer to the creator God of the world they are referring to about without specifically saying “God” and why are they ashamed to mention the name God now?
.
It also means “the Lord Most High.” This name is found in the Bible in Genesis 14:1-20 and Isaiah 14:13-14
.
 El-Elyon is first used in Genesis 14. Two kings met Abraham as he was returning victoriously from battle. First, the king of Salem, named Melchizedek – meaning King of righteousness – blessed Abraham, saying “Blessed be Abram by the Lord Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And blessed be the Lord Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Abram gave Melchizedek one tenth of all his wealth but when Bera, king of Sodom, offered to let Abram keep all the goods belonging to Sodom, that he had retrieved in battle, Abram refused to take anything. Bera was an evil man, king of an evil city. Abram kept the Lord in the highest place in his life and he recognized His servant. However, he would not have anything to do with profit from an evil source.
.
 It is further clear from the new Testament that Abraham here had a direct encounter with God or Jesus Christ .. so if you really want to know the fullness of God you have to accept Jesus Christ as your lord, Savior, baptizer of the Holy Spirit too.   https://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2015/05/18/no-one-will-reach-heaven-but-through-jesus-christ/
.
 Hebrews 7:1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.4 Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:6 But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.7 And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.8 And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.9 And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest: 21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.
.
Now some people get hung up on an attribute of God and falsely make that name a God.. God’s roles are often mistakenly referred to as ‘names of God’, when really they are simply titles. See Psalms 83:18. Jesus is seen as taking on  various roles to accomplish his work while on earth (Isaiah 61:1-4).  
.
The common title of God in the Hebrew old Testament  Bible is Elohim (Hebrew: אלהים), as opposed to other titles of God in Judaism. The Hebrew name of God—El: The word El comes from a root word meaning—might, strength, power. Sometimes referring to God and sometimes the mighty when used to refer to the true god of Israel, El is almost always qualified by additional words that further define the meaning that distinguishes Him from false gods.; In Exodus 6:3, when Moses first spoke with God, God said, “I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as El Shaddai, but I did not make myself known to them by My Name YHWH.” Almost all Orthodox Jews avoid using either Yahweh or Jehovah altogether The resulting substitute made from semivowels and glottals, known as the tetragrammaton, is considered the proper name of God in Judaism, and is not ordinarily permitted to pronounce it aloud, even in prayer. The prohibition on misuse (not use) of this name is the primary subject of the command not to take the name of the Lord in vain.; It is  a the Jewish practice of substituting the spoken Hebrew word ‘Adonai’ (translated as ‘Lord’) for YHWH when read aloud.; 
 .
YHWH (pre-incarnate) and Yeshua (incarnate) are one and the same, the second Person, with the Father and Ruach haQodesh (the Holy Spirit) being the first and third Persons, respectively, of ha’Elohiym (the Godhead). YHWH is thus expressed as “haShem,” which means ‘the Name.’
.
Now the English name “Jesus” has absolutely no pagan connection is  Greek . The Messiah’s  name is usually transliterated as either Yeshua or Yahshua by Jews. Messiah Name is not found in the old Testament at all.
The proponents of the Yahshua form claim that the Messiah’s name was the same as Joshua’s, written [vwhy or [wvwhy (Strong’s #3091). The only problem is that neither of these Hebrew spellings of Joshua’s name can possibly be pronounced “Yahshua.” The third letter in Joshua’s name (reading from right to left) is the letter vav (w) and a vav cannot be silent. The letter vav must be pronounced as either a “v” or an “o” or an “u.” (In the case of Joshua, it takes an “o” sound, giving us “Ye-ho-SHU-a.” Strong’s confirms this pronunciation.) For a name to be pronounced “Yahshua,” it would have to be spelled [wv–hy, and no such name exists anywhere in the Hebrew Bible. Also the Greek Yesous is actually transliterated from this shortened Hebrew form, Yeshua, and not directly from the longer form Yehoshua. Why is the Yahshua form used by no one but Sacred Name believers and people who have been influenced by Sacred Name believers? Probably because no such name exists in the Hebrew Bible and, to my knowledge, no such name exists in any extra-Biblical Hebrew literature as people invented the name Yahshua to fit their theology.
 .
Jesus (Iesus, Yeshua, Joshua (Yahshua), the  name solely corresponds to the Greek spelling Iesous, from which comes the English spelling Jesus. Christ means “the anointed” in Greek (Greek text: Χριστός). Khristos is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word Messiah;If you Really Love YESHUA , Jesus Christ  you would not lie and call Jesus solely now  by the Hebrew name but by his real title which was, Greek and is  is Jesus Christ.. note this at the time of Jesus Christ on earth he was not even called by his Hebrew name as the Roman soldiers did not let the Jews speak in Hebrew, but they spoke Greek, in fact Hebrew was not used for the next 2000 years almost till 1948.. so all these crooked, perverted, false people trying to appear more spiritual by using today a Hebrew title are obviously mentally disturbed, deceived..; In the Mormon cult  Father God’s name is Elohim   and Jesus name in his preincarnate state was Jehovah while the  Jehovah’s Witnesses  cult use the name Jehovah for God the Father as this is a commonly used rendition of the personal name YHWH (Hebrew: יהוה) as per the Holy Bible. Psalm 83:18 (Exodus 6:3, Isaiah 12:2 & 26:4) King James Version; for them God has only one name, Jehovah; 
 .
TRUE HOLINESS FIRSTLY LIES THROUGH QUESTiONING EVERYTHING and comparing it firstly as to what the Bible, the Holy Spirit actually teach us… not mere man or the devil..
.
The Sacred Name, Yeshua, YAHWEH EL ELYON , Messianic Jew and Hebraic Root Movements still are not only lacking, but often spiritually wrong and dangerous. To be more precise, their emphasis on isolated Old Testament verses and practices has been detrimental to true Christians to the degree that certainly some have lost their salvation by trying to be justified by the law of Moses (Gal. 5:2-4) and moving away from Jesus Christ.
. 
If you try to keep part of the Law you are required to keep it all (Gal. 5:3).

“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are [trying to be] justified by the Law; ye are fallen from grace” (Gal. 5:4).

(Rom 10:1 KJV) Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
.
  (Rom 1:20 KJV) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

The name, El-Elyon is used   in Isaiah 14. The king of Babylon the devil now he did not worship the One True God whom we now also know as Jesus Christ and aspired wrongfully to raise his throne above that of God Most High. Isaiah prophesied his fall
.
 Isaiah 14. 1 For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,  4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.  24 The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.27 For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?28 In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.  29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.32 What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it.

The Sacred Name, Yeshua, Messianic Jew and Hebraic Root Movement are not only lacking, but often spiritually wrong and dangerous. This movement seeks to destroy and blot out the name of Jesus and are falsely working hard in moving away us away from Jesus Christ falsely aiming to conform Christianity to its roots in Judaism in practice, … is false teaching. … To be more precise, their emphasis on Old Testament practices has been detrimental to true Christians to the degree that certainly some have lost their salvation by trying to be justified by the law of Moses (Gal. 5:2-4).  https://lifebyjesus.wordpress.com/tag/yahweh-elyon-yeshua/
.
El-Elyon followers are all liars, a demonic group , professing and holding to a counterfeit JESUS CHRIST, really a demonic Jesus Christ and their  false hatred for other Christians now is also obvious,
.
As a Pastor I can easily spot pretend Christians, wolves in sheep clothing, people like you and I too can rightfully warn all the others too..JESUS CHRIST His real name is JESUS CHRIST, as the New Testament was written in Greek only , JESUS CHRIST a translation of his Greek name when he was born a Jew, and he only spoke Greek as the Romans forbid Aramaic and Hebrew.. burned all the Jewish AND ARAMIC books, libraries too and the only language spoken was Greek and Hebrew was not spoken for the next 2000 years even till 1948 ..and ALL UNSAVED GENTILES, ALL UNSAVED JEWS , EVEN Messianic Jews who express hatred of THE CHURCH, Christians, Christianity , and thus JESUS CHRIST too will also go to hell still .. Jews even Messianic Jews do clash with requirements of what Being a Christian, Christianity.. that is why almost all of the Jews TOO OFTEN DO hate Jesus Christ and Christians..
.
Again when the Lord JESUS CHRIST, who is El-Elyon does not hold the highest position in your life, as God, the Lord JESUS CHRIST. Who is Creator of us all, understands when we fail and when we turn or mind and heart from him , the Lord JESUS CHRIST to mere false things, we need to turn still again back to Him the Lord Jesus Christ- when we confess the sin – He the Lord JESUS CHRIST, El-Elyon is ready to forgive your failing. When you return ‘the most high place’ to JESUS CHRIST, the El-Elyon , the Lord and Savior and who again sits on the throne of your life, your relationship with Him Jesus, God, returns to the perfect place it was meant to be. He JESUS CHRIST is the Lord Most High. He is the El-Elyon.
.
Now some people think they are more spiritual by using Hebrew titles of God, the Lord JESUS CHRIST, others want to avoid being persecuted for mentioning directly the Lord JESUS CHRIST.. Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.: 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
.
Also the  evidence for Greek as the original language of the New Testament is substantial, extensive, even overwhelming ” The New Testament was originally written in Greek. JESUS CHRIST said the Holy Spirit alone will guide and lead you into all truth, not some persons..The names YHWH (pre-incarnate) and Yeshua (incarnate) JESUS CHRIST are one and the same, the second Person, with the Father and Ruach haQodesh (the Holy Spirit) being the first and third Persons, respectively, of ha’Elohiym (the Godhead). YHWH is thus expressed as “haShem,” which means ‘the Name” JESUS CHRIST. Now we have no textual manuscript evidence in the way of ancient fragments to support a Hebrew original of Matthew or any New testament books. None what so ever . The fact remains that there is.
.
Again those who use Hebrew substitutions they are the one’s who not only are truly guilty of adding their false substitutions to the word of God and thus falsely try to and destroy any confidence in the genuine, authentic Greek New Testament.. they are guilty of adding the Hebrew Divine name into the New Testament where it is never found and this is all deliberate really demonic still on their parts too.. No honest scholar who views the Bible as the unalterable and inspired word of God can or will ever believe in a Hebrew New Testament original.Now we have no textual manuscript evidence in the way of ancient fragments to support a Hebrew original of Matthew or any New testament books. None what so ever . The fact remains that there is absolutely no evidence of a Hebrew New Testament.. The only scholars today that maintain a Hebrew Original of even the book of Matthew instead of a Greek original, are the false Bible Skeptics and Bible trashers. A Hebrew Book of Matthew has undeniably been universally rejected because they are based upon speculation and guesses and no solid proof. Now also note this that at the time of Jesus Christ here on earth there is no evidence that the Jews under the Roman occupation spoke anything but Greek, thanks to alexander the great Conquests, and even the Hebrew Bible had been translated to Greek 300 years before..
.
If you Really Love YESHUA , JESUS CHRIST you would not lie and call Jesus solely now by the Hebrew name but by his real title which was, Greek and it is JESUS CHRIST.. note this at the time of Jesus Christ on earth he was not even called by his Hebrew name as the Roman soldiers did not let the Jews speak in Hebrew, but they spoke Greek, in fact Hebrew was not used for the next 2000 years almost till 1948.. The most common reasons the Jews will not accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah is the same bad reasons Apostle Judas did not.. They falsely want a Judaic Messiah that will make Jews the center of the Universe on earth, ii is due to a false pride and the false idolistic Jewish culture worshi Yes all these crooked, perverted, false people trying to appear more spiritual by using today a Hebrew title are obviously foolish , disturbed, deceived..;
.
Personal Salvation, for all by Jesus Christ  is  achieved without observing the precepts of the Torah that had exclusively applied  only to the Jewish people and which laws they were never able to keep in full  as well. So why would they want to put Christians under these false bondages?  https://asposed.wordpress.com/2018/08/19/the-torah-is-no-longer-fully-applicable/
.
Jews, Messianic Jews blame Christians, Gentiles  for their hardships, sufferings. “It is an aggressive , war like stance in the debate over  the Jewish history,”  where both  groups  have been distorting the past of their history. “History is a victim of the current crisis in relations between Jews and and Christianity . The whole question is how much hard evidence does anyone really have to support their too often one sided  presentations  is asked. No one knows what Jewish life was even at the time of Christ even cause the Romans had destroyed the Jewish books and Libraries.. “ The Jews do want everyone to think that everyone else wise is in the wrong, abusive,  corrupt,  influenced.” Selective memory, false Biblical studies,  “wars of historical memory” are being waged by the Jews with the Christians, Gentiles  where History is increasingly being interpreted in different ways to suit their own personal Jewish views . Any negative  statements that comes about  as to the Jews is now still being  falsely viewed as being anti Semitic,  as Gentile Genocide  with the “intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or the whole Jewish  religious group,” and not necessarily by killing them, but also by  any opposition of the  PAST Jewish acts, writing, history.
 .
Luke-Acts still remind us that the ex Jewish and Gentile  followers of Jesus  both had played a prominent role in early Christian history, even after the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE, when  all Christians,  now non Jewish ones too were  becoming the dominant force and voice within   Christianity.
 .
In reality  many of the early  History of  Christian works, those the church fathers wrote or preached from the pulpit  have been preserved and they were  mostly  opposed to Judaism and the observance of Jewish custom. . As late as the fourth century of the Common Era, John Chrysostom, was vociferously   convincing  his Christian parishioners in Antioch not to attend services at synagogues and not to observe Jewish festivals
.
The Jewishness of Jesus has been gradually resurfacing mainly  in North America mainly  and is contrasted  by the Views held by European Christians. American Christians  tend  to conceive of their faith in Jewish terms and even falsely identify themselves with the Jewish people and story significantly  a lot more over  the  Europeans Christians..

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

Ecclesiastes 5:17 All his days also he eateth in darkness, and he hath much sorrow and wrath with his sickness.

Revelation 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Proverbs 28:  18    Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.19    He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough. 20    A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.21    To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress. 22    He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

Proverbs 11:4    Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death. 5    The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness. 

Matt 6:33 24    No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25    Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26    Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27    Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28    And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29    And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30    Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31    Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32    (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34    Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

I heard a preacher say that he had discovered the secret of prosperity, wealth, strength, power  in the Bible..

.

I knew right away he was falsely  using this title as sucker’s bait to get people to his service. The bad preacher said the secret to success, prosperity is to obey god’s voice every time you hear it.. as if that now was even possible in our own strength.. as all you can do is first pray Lord, help me to obey you in all I do.. without this prayer and the help of God by his holy Spirit it cannot be done.. something the bad preacher had left out, did not mention.. yes  he who hastens to get rich will find, will be pierced with much sorrow, sadness

Christianity is not Judaism and never will be

Titus 1: 14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables. and commandments of men. that turn from the truth.

Jesus Christ is the God of Christianity. of all real Christians.  Jesus himself had began a New Religion Called Christianity

Jesus came to earth and began a new religion. separate from Judaism that he first introduced to the Jewish people. But the Jews have   rejected Jesus and his new religion. and anyone who wasn’t Jewish was a Christian or a Gentile. A Jewish identity meant one thing: Jews don’t believe in Jesus.  Jewish leaders. at the time of Jesus in Jerusalem.  in addition to the Jewish shouted . “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!  and thus had killed  Jesus. When Jewish People embrace Yeshua. they don’t convert to Christianity  or the real Jesus Christ. They remain Jews and do not become Christians. All. even the Jewish People do need to convert to Christianity;   Indeed. Christians came to understand themselves as people who by definition were not Jewish and who believed that Christianity had “superseded” Judaism — that is. “taken its seat” of favor before God.

The only thing in the Bible I rightfully do follow related to the Laws and Prophets. (old Testament) is Jesus, a  summary as per  Matthew 2:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Now beyond that I do not follow the doctrine of the Old covenant from God only to the Jews, Israel. I follow the New Covenant between God and the world and more precisely , the whole New Testament. Jesus the Word, the Holy Spirit.

It is interesting that racial Israel refuses even today to admit her abandonment by God and her sins. need of Jesus Christ. Israel was continuously unfaithful to her husband God from the beginning.   For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing. but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18).
.
 Jews may still be saved on an individual basis by coming to Jesus Christ. but the racial nation of Israel and the Jews as a people no longer have any part to play in God’s redemptive plan. On the day of Pentecost. the true Israel. Jewish believers in Jesus. was taken by the Holy Spirit and formed into the nucleus of the New Testament church (Acts 2)
.
 There is no single greater evidence or proof of the divine origin of Christianity. the great glory and power of the Lord Jesus Christ as King of the kingdom of God. and the accuracy and reliability of the Bible than the prophecies and their fulfillments regarding the destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman armies under Titus in 70 AD. It also shows that God punishes the wicked drastically.

Look at  the fruits Jews UNDER STALIN who were behind a  Jewish revolution  that put the Russian Orthodox  Church. Russian sovereignty  itself on the brink of extinction  which  was  a planned.   their designed program of destruction of Russia’s religion. national culture. national education. national production. and the national financial system.
.
I.t is undeniable  that today’s Israel treats Palestinians in a very similar way to how Jews were treated in Germany in the 1930s .>

You are a Messianic Jew? But there really is no such thing in the whole New Testament all the Jews became Christians.
.
  It is so typical unChristian even by the. Messianic Jews.> to falsely condemn all Christians for being non Jewish. Gentiles. dogs. and to blame the Christians for all the Jewish hardships. persecutions. .because most Jews still cannot. do not want to admit their own sins. personal negative acts.  contributions. .>
.
In John 8:58. Jesus Christ  actually declared not only His pre existence but also took upon Himself the name of God as revealed to Moses in the burning bush: “Amen. amen I tell you. before Abraham was born. I am.” Jesus nor his disciples  lived and died as   observant Jews in Israel.
.
The New Testament does not teach that the Gentiles have superseded the Jews; but neither does it teach a racial exclusivity that gives Jewish people preferential or an elevated status. According to Paul. God’s intention has always been to break down the “wall of partition” and create for Himself one new people. drawn from every race (Eph. 2:11–16).The new people chosen are called solely Christians too.
.
Is the Christian movement that goes by the name “Messianic Judaism” a form of Judaism? Cause it is certainly not Christianity.
.
The false need of the Jewish Christian to keep their Jewish identity is a direct result. proof that they have not given up  all to Jesus. as Jesus Christ is not the sole lord of their life still.
.
The Old Testament with all its hopes and promises finds its fulfillment in Jesus Christ.  Apostle Paul  declares that all the promises of God have found their fulfillment in Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 1:20).
.
The fact that the majority of Jews refused the gift and the way God fulfilled Old Testament hopes. makes no difference (Rom. 3:3). They are not all Israel who are of Israel (Rom. 9:6). Those who did accept Jesus as the hope of Israel were the prophesied remnant. the only true Israel of God. The blessings of God’s Messiah could not be contained in Jewry alone. for had not God said that in Abraham’s seed .all families.> of the earth would be blessed?   God’s Christ was not only the Servant of Israel as depicted in Isaiah. but the .second Adam.>. He was therefore not alone the hope of .Israel.>. but “the Desire of .all.> nations.” Hag. 2:7. It is on the basis of the gospel that we look for a new heaven in the age of the life to come. This is no vague hope. This new creation is .already a reality.> in Jesus Christ. The end of the world and the great consummation at the second coming of Christ will merely be the open .disclosure.> and empirical realization of what God has .already.> done in Jesus Christ.”

A person has to have a terrible bias  in assuming  that  the Jewish people the perpetual right to the Land of Israel  The Promised Land was never an unconditional right. but always a conditional gift. During the wilderness wanderings. God warned His people. “If you defile the land. it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you” (Lev. 18:28).“‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Since you…shed blood. should you then possess the land? You rely on your sword. you do detestable things…Should you then possess the land?…I will make the land a desolate waste. and her proud strength will come to an end” (Ezek. 33:25–29; see also Jer. 17:4).
.
It is essential that all Christians interpret the Old Testament in the light of the New Testament. and not the other way around
.
In essence. so called “Messianic Jewish” groups claim that they represent a “completed form of Judaism” or “completed form of Jewishness” or “Biblical Judaism.” In actuality. self styled “Messianic Judaism” is a counterfeit form of Christianity that follows the  rabbinic Judaism. There are radical differences between Judaism and Christianity. Traditional Christianity depicts  Judaism as an incomplete religion because it does not include a sole  belief in Jesus. Judaism is not and has never been an incomplete form of Christianity. Judaism   is a different religion from that of the Christian ones that have developed over the last two thousand years; including the Christian movement that goes by the name “Messianic Judaism.” Any attempt to artificially blend the two is deceitful. demonic. erroneous.
.
What makes Christianity Christian is its belief in “Jesus Christ: Son of God. God incarnate.” The early Christians replaced Torah with Jesus as the access to God; soon forgiveness of sin was said to be possible only through belief in Jesus. Theological reflection on the significance of Jesus ultimately led to the doctrine of the Trinity: Father. Son. and Holy Spirit.  The Jewish Identity of Jesus Is Meaningless to non Jews. Gentiles. Christians. Messianic Jewish movement” have often presented a confused and contradictory theology. All present day Christian denominations and sects are theological offshoots of the first century mostly ex gentile churches that had developed separate and distinct from first century Jewish groups . Since the first century. Christianity has been at odds with most of rabbinic interpretation. belief of the Gentile church for the  Torah is irrelevant to salvation has became the dominant doctrine in the New Testament all Christianity.  The Christian community was distinguished from Jewish Christians   by its lack of traditional Jewish practice.
.
Judaism and Christianity are entirely different and essentially unrelated religions.  Judaism and Christianity are entirely different and essentially unrelated religions. The two religions bear different messages and distinctive meanings. each for its own faithful. The Christian concept of God is not the Jewish concept of God; in essence. their God is not our God. One cannot replace Torah with Jesus and still have a reason for Judaism or truthfully call the new entity “a form of Judaism.” The respective adherents to Judaism and Christianity are part of distinct and separate faith communities.
.
Any self defined Christian today that claims Torah observance is incumbent upon Jewish born Christians would be considered as heretic by other Christians. Fabricating a counterfeit ritual and cultural milieu. this self styled “Messianic Jewish movement.” creates a false  illusion of adhering to a  false form of first century Jewish Christianity as practiced by the early Jewish followers of Jesus. The ritual and cultural milieu they depict never existed.
.
It is impossible to preserve the cultural aspects of the Jewish people while replacing the spiritual. the theological. and the salvific grounding and reason for that culture with a non Jewish faith system. Jewish religious life finds its theological and spiritual meaning through the life of Torah. not through the death and resurrection of Jesus. 

.

There is a common understanding among Jews of all denominations that Judaism. understood as the culture and religion of the Jewish people. contains all they need to achieve spiritual fulfillment. that is. salvation. Anyone who is not a real Christian still ends up in hell

Also still Worshiping Israel. Jerusalem. It’s and . it’s people. it’s leaders. Jews.  the Old Testament is still an unacceptable sin to God.

The Bible does not teach us to be partial to Israel or to the Palestinians. or any nation firstly. ” Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes. of Gentiles also. since God is one. He will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith” ( Romans 3:29 30 )

For as far as Judaism. Israel. this is what is said in the New Testament.

Matthew 23:38 Behold. your house is left unto you desolate
.
Luke 13:35 Behold. your house is left unto you desolate : and verily I say unto you. Ye shall not see me. until the time come when ye shall say. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord

Lies and distortions. taking isolated Bible verses out of context. are major part of the Jewish interpretation of Christianity. and of Jesus . Apostle Paul. and all Christian teachings even by the Messianic Jews and most Jews. Muslims even.  as they do not worship the same God as the Christians do cause they had rejected Jesus Christ as their God

Jesus was responsible for the cessation of the Jewish religious practices. Jesus was the first “Christian.” who had come to announce the end of the Torah and Judaism. of Israel as well. Jesus simply came to fulfill Messianic prophecies contained in the Jewish scriptures. and not to Continue his once Jewishness. Apostle Paul called his Jewish Heritage “Dung”
.
No Jews or non Jews never the less should still continue to observe the Torah after embracing Jesus as their Messiah.
.
The Christian Church is not defined solely by the 4 Gospel of Matthew. Luke and John but is also clearly more defined by the Book of Acts and Apostle Paul’s writings.

The non covenant keeping Israel does not have a divine right to hold the land of promise   .Both the blessed status of the people and the privileged right to the land are conditional on Israel’s keeping the covenant God made with her. Thus God said to Israel. “If you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant. you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples” (Exodus 19:5 ). Their own disobedience brings them the punishment.  

.
Israel as a whole today rejects her Messiah. Jesus Christ. God’s Son. This is the ultimate act of covenant breaking with God. God promised that to Israel “a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder. and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor. Mighty God. Everlasting Father. Prince of Peace” ( Isaiah 9:6 7 ). But with tears this Prince of Peace looked out over Jerusalem and said. “Would that you . . . had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. . . . You did not know the time of your visitation” ( Luke 19:42 44 )
.
When the builders rejected the beautiful Cornerstone. Jesus said. “The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits” ( Matthew 21:43 ). He explained. “Many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham. Isaac. and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness” ( Matthew 8:11 12 )

.

The ethnic Israel and it’s the people are always at enmity with God in rejecting the gospel of Jesus Christ. their Messiah ( Romans 11:28 )
.
Israel once before in the past had already been Refused a right to Enter the Promised Land ( Deuteronomy 1:19 45 )

Some Messianic Jews and false Christians try to define what the religious life was ay the time of Jesus Christ on earth outside of the New Testament Bible. that is impossible. Only half a dozen books are available about Jesus form that period and they were not even written in Hebrew

Now natural Israel has no longer any standing before God. or any part in His future purposes. The New Testament Scriptures makes it now certain that the national restoration of Israel after the flesh is not a part of the revealed will of God. but that the reverse is true. God regards natural Israel earthly kingdom with utter detestation. and He will never restore it. Next when John the Baptist preached to the Jewish people. saying. “Repent. for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” he was not announcing the setting up again of the earthly throne of David for Israel as many Jews. some professing Christians falsely hoped. believe it would happen again.

Even Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God. Jesus Christ. and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND BUT TO THE NEW HEAVENLY Jerusalem (Rev 3:12 KJV) Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God. and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God. and the name of the city of my God. which is new Jerusalem. which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name

The city Babylon described in Revelation is Jerusalem which is called “Mystery Babylon.” The prophecy of Mystery Babylon is found in Revelation 17:3 5. “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast. full of names of blasphemy. having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color. and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls. having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written. MYSTERY. BABYLON THE GREAT. THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
.
Verse 18 of the chapter tells us that the woman is a city. “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city. which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” In verse 1. we are told that the woman sits on many waters. Verse 15 explains the meaning of the waters. “And he saith unto me. The waters which thou sawest. where the whore sitteth. are peoples. and multitudes. and nations. and tongues.” Not only is this woman a city. but the city is apparently the headquarters over a vast international commerce. financial. political system. The Angel’s warning was that God’s people might hear His voice saying: “Come out of her. MY PEOPLE. that ye be not partakers of her sins. and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Rev. 18:4
.
In Revelation 17:18. John sadly makes it clear that the “whore of Babylon” was the ancient capital city of Israel.Jerusalem. The Romans destroyed the city entirely in 70 AD An angel announces that the fall of Babylon is imminent. and warns the faithful to depart the city to escape the destruction. Those who have profited from their relationship with Babylon lament her passing. Do see Jesus own parallel words

So what about the ten commandments?.>
.

John 13: 34 A new commandment I give unto you. That ye love one another; as I have loved you. that ye also love one another

Ephesians 2: 15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity. even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man. so making peace;

1 John 2: 7 Brethren. I write no new commandment unto you. but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning

28 Again. a new commandment I write unto you. which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past. and the true light now shineth

2 John 1: 5 And now I beseech thee. lady. not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee. but that which we had from the beginning. that we love one another

We see many people trying to make a great deal of our keeping the. the now OBSOLETED .>ten commandments. even today when clearly no one can. has even kept them all still…. besides Jesus

.

Was is mere men who taught you your theology or the ex Jewish Apostles of Jesus as per the New Testament. or the Holy Spirit

Generally. mostly it is the insecure people in God. because of their still unresolved guilt. who falsely have an emphasis on forced evangelism. and they falsely do support enforced. forced tithing. keeping the ten commandments because they do not have enough of a relationship with God for HIM to supply all of their needs for their ministry. It should be noted that Jesus himself and the Original apostles had never requested tithing. and clearly they had not relied on tithing for all of their missionary endeavours. They trusted God for their leading and their needs to be met Jesus himself and the Original apostles financial request lay solely in helping the poor Christians. These same people generally are falsely trying to find God’s favour not by faith in Jesus Christ but falsely by their religious good efforts as they clearly still do not know what faith in God means
.
Romans 3 : 3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

Revelation 21:22 clearly says now. teaches that there will be no Temple in the Millennium: “And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” Also in the New Testament we are told in Hebrews 7:11 18 that God has permanently set aside the priesthood of the descendants of Levi. in favor of the priesthood of Christ. a non Levite.
.
Also under the New Covenant. circumcision is not required. Galatians 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing. nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
.
Christian and Jewish Zionism is a false movement that seeks a spiritual and national restoration of Israel. the land of the Jewish people. Specifically. these Zionists falsely still do believe that the Jews have a divine right to the real estate it formerly possessed during the reign of King Solomon. based on the promises that God made to Abraham
.
Christian Zionists falsely also believe that. once Israel’s land is restored and its ancient borders are secured. Christ will come again to rule with the Jews in Israel for a millennium.
.
Zionists now have no documented legal legitimate heritage or inheritance after the destruction of all records in the Jerusalem temple in 70 ad . None can prove of whom he is the son. so Zionists even now have no legitimate lineage. Even the common Scripture used by heretics to justify a “Jewish home” is Genesis 12:26 “I will bless those who bless thee. and curse those who curse thee.” This scripture refers however now solely to the justification of the heathen (Gentiles) in Christ. those who are called by the name Christians. Zionism is based on the faulty assumption that God still owes the Jews the land He promised to give to Abraham’s descendants.
.
“…For they are not all Israel. which are of Israel… That is. They which are the children of the flesh. these are not the children of God” (Romans 9:6.8).
.
“For he is not a Jew. which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision. which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew. which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart. in the spirit. and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men. but of God.” —Romans 2:28.29
.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek. there is neither bond nor free. there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” —Galatians 3:28

Galatians 3:1 (God) redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus. SO THAT by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

Jude 1:3 Beloved. my whole concern was to write to you in regard to our common salvation. [But] I found it necessary {and} was impelled to write you and urgently appeal to {and} exhort [you] to contend for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints [the faith which is that sum of Christian belief which was delivered verbally to the holy people of God.

Matthew 21: 43 Therefore say I unto you. The kingdom of God shall be taken from you. and given to It is clear from this declaration by Jesus that the Jews are no longer being blessed by God. no longer the chosen ones. even if they do falsely deny this Jews who reject Jesus as the Jewish Messiah are consequently condemned by God. forfeiting the promises otherwise due to them under the covenants.; have forfeited any covenantal status. The Christian Church is the sole the inheritor of the promises made with the children of Israel.;

Cessation. Supersessionism and replacement theology or fulfillment theology are the true Christian interpretations of New Testament Covenant and viewing God’ . The Christian Church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel. As the Christian the church is a continuation of Israel (replacement/covenant theology). Also. covenants made with Israel are fulfilled in the Christian church

There are no Biblical remaining prophecies concerning Israel to be fulfilled before Jesus returns. The New Testament Bible does not contain any prophecy concerning Israel today. except that she will continue to “fall by the edge of the sword. and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles. until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled” (Luke 21:24).

No Christians should be focusing upon the Middle East today; but rather. upon preaching the Full Gospel to the world (Matthew 28:19.20). We are also now to love all people. of all nations. of all races

THESE FALSE JEWISH LOVERS CANNOT DEBATE THE FACTS WITH THE NEW TESTAMENT BIBLE. THEY CANNOT QUOTE APPROPRIATE NEW TESTAMENT VERSES TO DISPROVE ANYHING I HAVE SIAD ALL THEY CAN DO IS RESORT TO FALSE PERSONAL ATACKS TOO SO TYPICALLY JEWISH TOO. NOT SURPRISING THAT JEWISH LOVERS TURN TO HATRED WHEN YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THEM AND SHOW THE WHOLE WORLD WHAT THEY ARE REALY LIKE STILL DEMONIC

Yes “Some of the believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees stood up and said. ‘The Gentiles must be circumcised and required to obey the law of Moses’” (Acts 15:5)
.
What were these laws? Were they biblical laws. or the unbiblical traditions of the elders? In every other New Testament mention of the “laws of Moses.” the biblical books of Moses are meant (Luke 2:22; 24:44; John 7:22 23; Acts 28:23; 1 Cor. 9:9; Heb. 10:28). Luke could have said “traditions.” but he did not. Anyone who knew the teachings of Jesus would already know that unbiblical traditions were not required. They did not need to debate about Jewish traditions. Peter then began to scold the people who wanted the gentiles to obey the laws of Moses: “Now then. why do you try to test God by putting on the necks of the disciples a yoke that neither we nor our fathers have been able to bear? No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved. just as they are” (vs. 10 11). Some men said that gentiles should be circumcised and obey the laws of Moses or else they could not be saved. Not so. said the apostles. Gentiles are saved by grace and faith. God is pleased to dwell in people who aren’t circumcised and who don’t keep the rituals. But since Moses is widely preached. we need to give a decree that clearly distinguishes the Christian faith from the Law of Moses. This pleased the entire church. so they wrote it in a letter and sent it to Antioch. where they “were glad for its encouraging message”
.
“You are a letter from Christ. the result of our ministry. written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God. not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts…. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills. but the Spirit gives life” (2 Cor. 3:3 6)

.Real Christians lead their lives by being led by the Spirit of God not by the obsolete. redundant laws of Moses. 

Read Gal 5 :1 .Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free. and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage
https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/09/27/so what about the ten commandments/

The sole basis of the Christian faith today. which is why it is also called the New Testament as well. is not at all the Old Testament Judaism but the New Testament Jesus

The true Christians since Jesus Christ next always left their old Jewish Synagogues all together… and all Christian Jews. Messianic Jews too need to do this today as well. also they are supposed to give up their Jewish roots. Jewish culture. Jewish religion
.
The reality is that because of the death of Jesus Christ on the cross the New Covenant next replaces the Mosaic Covenant. which is commonly referred to as the “Old Covenant”

Christians have now replaced the National Jews. Israel as God’s chosen people too. in Inheriting now rather all of God’s promises too. . All of the The early Christian CHURCH theologians saw the New Covenant in Christ as a NEW replacement for the Mosaic Covenant for most of the last hundreds of years
..
(Matthew 21:33 45). addressed Israel. the Jews of that time. “the chief priests and the Pharisees”. “‘When therefore the lord of the vineyard comes. what will he do to those farmers?’ They told him. ‘He will miserably destroy those miserable men. and will lease out the vineyard to other farmers. who will give him the fruit in its season.”

Only Jesus is the way. the truth. and the life (John 14:6) and that there is no other salvation but through him Only Jesus is the way. the truth. and the life (John 14:6) and that there is no other salvation but through him

The saints are described in Revelation as those who “hold to the testimony of Jesus.” ((Rev 12:17 KJV) And the dragon was wroth with the woman. and went to make war with the remnant of her seed. which keep the commandments of God. and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.)

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate. and broad is the way. that leadeth to destruction. and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate. and narrow is the way. which leadeth unto life. and few there be that find it.15 Beware of false prophets. which come to you in sheep’s clothing. but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns. or figs of thistles?
.

Replacement theology is the teaching that the Christian church has replaced national Israel regarding the plan. purpose. and promises of God.
.
Therefore. many of the promises that God made to Israel must be spiritualized.  For example. when it speaks of Israel being restored to the land. this really means that the Christian church will be blessed.  Also. covenants made with Israel are fulfilled in the Christian church so. for example.

  • The Jewish people are no longer God’s chosen people.  Instead. the Christian church now makes up God’s chosen people.
  • In the New Testament after Pentecost. the term “Israel” refers to the church.
  • The Mosaic covenant (Exodus 20) is replaced by the new covenant ( Luke 22:20 ).
  • Actual circumcision is replaced by a circumcision of the heart ( Rom. 2:29 ).

So. in replacement theology the church has replaced Israel as the primary means by which the world is blessed by God’s work. Though it is true that the church does replace Israel in some areas such as properly representing God on earth. acknowledging the promise of the Messiah .

God is not completely done with Israel as  the Christian church is its complete replacement.

“For I do not want you. brethren. to be uninformed of this mystery. lest you be wise in your own estimation. that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; 26 and thus all Israel will be saved; just as it is written. ‘The Deliverer will come from Zion. he will remove ungodliness from Jacob.’” ( Rom. 11:25 26 )

Replacement theology is also known as supersessionism which means that the Christian church has superceded Israel in God’s plan.

In Christianity. cessationism is the doctrine that spiritual gifts such as speaking in tongues . prophecy and healing ceased with the original twelve apostles and the completion of the canon of Scripture. . This is generally opposed to continuationism . which teaches that the Holy Spirit may bestow the spiritual gifts on persons other than the original twelve apostles at any time. Cessation theology. so called. is. astonishingly enough. exactly what it denounces: completely nonbiblical. There is absolutely no clear biblical statement that any of the gifts of the Spirit have gone anywhere. especially away. How could they go away? What could that possibly even mean? The Holy Spirit has not taken the last train for the coast. The gifts are His gifts. They were not the possession of the apostles nor of the church in any time or location. Where the Spirit is. the gifts are.

How does he know what God has decided? He assumed he knows what God has decided because surely God would not use someone else. somewhere else. Surely. If that writer has not seen a train for a while. then surely the trains don’t run anymore. anywhere.Just because trains don’t run past your house doesn’t mean there’s no such thing as trains. Furthermore. if there are no trains where you are. why not check out other. more active train stations? Trainspotting for cave dwellers is dismally disappointing business. and train denial is absurdly arrogant Because I have never seen a train. there are no trains. It also smacks of an incredible conceit. “If God were going to manifest His gifts anywhere in any time among any group. it would surely be now among me.” How can any  person be an expert on something he has never experienced?

If the gift of apostleship. prophet  has not  ended. then other gifts   have not as this foundation has been laid by the apostles and prophets ( Eph. 2:20 )

.Some people are too ready to believe in the cessation of the gifts of the Holy spirit but they are not read to accept the cessation of the importance of  Jews. Israel in the New Testament.>

An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 Ukrainian Jews worshiped Jesus as Messiah. This makes Ukraine, a nation of 45 million, the region’s fulcrum of the Messianic Jewish movement, As Jews emigrate en masse from Ukraine, its Messianic believers are planting churches around the world. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/08/01/invaded/

“We … rejoice that many Jewish people are coming to faith in Messiah in places that witnessed some of the worst atrocities of the Holocaust period,” stated the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE). The group met in Kiev for its 10th European conference last April. More than 80 participants from 19 nations gathered largely “to affirm and encourage these Jewish followers of Jesus,” and to recognize “the enormous number of Jewish followers of Jesus who perished in the Holocaust.” No mention of the Christians though..

Jews for Jesus are advocating Jewish conversion and assimilation to Christianity, while Messianic Jews are advocating a new sect of Judaism built around Jesus, Torah observant lifestyles, and preservation of Jewish identity. Jews for Jesus is a repudiation of Judaism and a Christian missionary organization with the end goal of getting Jews converted and into the Christian church.  The beliefs of Jews for Jesus and Messianic Jews produce two vastly different worldviews, sharing perhaps only the Messianic claims of Jesus. The adherents to each live different lives, eat different foods, worship differently and with different congregations, and pass on different values to their children. Messianic Jews are Jewish people who do not follow Jesus as they  generally observe  the Torah and see their identities within Israel, rather than as Christians..

One of the saddest stories in the Bible is the story of the Jews rejecting their own Messiah. After spending millennia desperately waiting and anticipating His arrival, most Jews didn’t want   Him. They rejected what he taught, now stood for. While Jesus taught a  strict form of  partial Judaism, enforcing narrow divorce laws there were a few teachings, however, that devout Jews found hard to swallow.The first was that He could forgive sins. Jews believe the forgiveness of sins is a much more involved process than one man’s word. They also believe that if sins are forgiven so easily, it will only lead to more sin. Secondly, Jesus’ teaching to love our enemies and pray for them. This is anathema to the long-suffering Jews who have been persecuted so harshly by so many. It also sounds contradictory to laws in the Old Testament, such as Deuteronomy 17:7, which says to purge evil “from your midst.” The disconnect was that it is good and appropriate for a nation to have and enforce  good laws, and to go to war for just causes but Jesus taught that our own dealings should be filled with grace and mercy.

Jews also do not accept Jesus’ teaching that He is the only way to God. With a religious system based on restitution and sincere repentance, Jews have no need of an intermediary to reach God. They reject the need  of forgiveness and salvation since they have theory own religion and they also still do not believe mankind has a sin nature, they do not believe any reasonable, attentive person can sin so much that  they cannot find forgiveness through their own effort. Their pride in their strict adherence to the law of the Old Testament blinded them to Who Jesus is. Paul says in Romans 9:30-32: What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith; but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness did not succeed in reaching that law. Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone.

There are no New Testament promises of any future blessings  for Jerusalem, or Israel but only some of them they will come to accept Jesus as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10).

All real Christians differ in many ways  from Messianic Jews  including history, beliefs, dress, and practice.  Messianic Judaism itself  is a relatively new phenomenon. Jews falsely still do believe that an anti-Semitic view of the Messiah’s life and death is a main theology in Christian Europe for thousands of years. …  yet the New Testament teaches that there is no distinction between Jews and Gentiles:  26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28)

Messianic Jews Tend to Use false Jewish Symbols the Christian Does Not use.  And there is not evidence that any of the early Christians they attempted to look and dress like Jewish rabbis as many male Messianic Jews do. The New Testament demonstrates the apostles did not appear to look like Jewish rabbis or Levitical priests. When, for one example, the Apostle Paul was arrested, the authorities did not recognize him as a Jew, but thought he was an Egyptian (Acts 21:37-38). Paul had to tell the military commander he was a Jew (Acts 27:39). Thus, Paul did not look like a Jewish rabbi, nor was he apparently wearing distinguishing phylacteries or tzitzits as the Messianic Jews do.  Christian males are not to have their heads covered when the pray:  4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. . . 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. (1 Corinthians 11:4,7)  Many Messianic Jews do pray with their heads covered. Messianic Jews tend focus on improper aspects of outward appearances and traditions of Judaism.

MESSIANC (7)

Many Messianic Jews are implying since the Savior was Jewish they themselves are special people in God’s sight. In contrast consider what John the Baptist said to Jewish people in his day who thought they were special because of their nationality:

.
But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham” (Mt. 3:7-9).

.
And what does Jesus’ Jewish identity have to do with anything? This is never magnified in the New Testament. Jesus is the Savior of all who will repent and submissively trust in him. Rev. 7 states there will be people in God’s kingdom from every tribe, people, language and nation all redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. Of what nationality Messiah was as He walked the earth is totally irrelevant.

.

Messianic Judaism is still also a big Satanic lie and it’s followers tend to lie about Christians, the Christian Church, Christianity , Zionism for they are not real Christians but are all non Christians generally going to hell still, as they have rejected the real Jesus.. Sad.

.

Because all those of us in the Christian Church do follow the practices of the early Christians in the Book of Acts, the faith once for all delivered to the saints” we rightfully do now differ in many ways including history, beliefs, dress, and practice from the Jews or the Messianic Judaism Beliefs . We Christians as a faithful remnant of the faith once for all delivered to the saints” that is still not a part of the false Messianic Jewish movement
.
1 Corinthians 1: 2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours:
.
Philippians 11 Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons:
.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.
.
Would you be willing to“ contend earnestly for the faith once for all delivered t the saints” or would you prefer the counterfeits? the false Messianic Judaism ?
.
The Brief History of Messianic Judaism –
.
While the Messianic Jews falsely do claim historical ties to the original apostles, the Messianic Jews essentially also do teach that their movement went away and returned again in the 19th century. In the late 1800s, many Jews are claimed to have looked at the “Christian Bible,” or New Testament Scriptures, for themselves with a desire to return to the land of Israel and establish a permanent Jewish homeland there and found Jesus and Zionism. Though Messianic Judaism falsely claims to date back to Jewish Yeshua’s twelve apostles, this is not true, and its “resurrection” is a relatively new phenomenon. This all differs greatly from the position of the Church which believes that the true Church of God always existed from Acts 2 to the present
.
Matthew 16: 13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
.
In spite of the many opposition put upon Jewish Believers since the death of Jesus to give up their faith, it seems that Messianic Judaism continued into the seventh century AD. First, non-Messianic rabbis pressured Messianic Jews to relinquish their faith in Jewish Yeshua not the Christian Jesus Christ as the Messiah. Christianity pressured Messianic Jews to abandon their Jewishness rightfully . … there have always been individual Jewish Believers in a Jewish Yeshua. Beginning in the early 1800s increasing numbers of Jewish people began believing in a Jewish Yeshua.
.
We a Christian Church as Christians do believe that true the Church of God, Christianity continued throughout the ages and yes not any Jewish one too.
.
Messianic Judaism Considers their Churches as being Christian but still only those Churches who strive to hold to the original practices and teachings of the original Christian Church in the book of Acts can be called Christian (cf. Jude 3) which they are not. Simply claiming Christian association is not enough (cf. 1 John 2:18-19).
.
Now many, Messianic falsely place emphasis on living their lives according to the tradition they call the 613 laws, 613 commandments, or 613 mitzvot. But as many of these 613 are simply added Jewish traditions, they are not appropriate for Jews or Gentiles to advocate.
.
7 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ 8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men — the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.” 9 He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ 11 But you say, ‘If a man says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban” — ‘ (that is, a gift to God), 12 then you no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother, 13 making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.” (Mark 7:7-13)
.
Some Messianic Jews falsely do believe that all of the Jewish holidays, and indeed the entire Torah, intrinsically hint at the Messiah, and thus no study of the End Times is complete without understanding the major Jewish Festivals in their larger prophetic context. To certain believers, the feasts of Pesach and Shavuot were fulfilled in Jesus’s first coming, and Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot will be at his second. Some also believe in a literal 7000-year period for the human history of the world, with a Millennial Messianic kingdom prior to a final judgment.
.
Messianic Holidays – Holy days observed include those recognized by Judaism: Passover, Sukkot, Yom Kippur, and Rosh Hashanah. …
.
Sabbath – Like traditional Jews, Messianic Jews observe the Sabbath starting at sundown on Friday until sundown on Saturday.
.
Their elevation of non-biblical Jewish tradition to the status of a biblical law would violate the first commandment.
.
The use of symbols such as the Star of David would violate the second commandment.
.
Jesus also would consider that, despite outward appearances, that the Messianic Jews practice a form of lawlessness similar to that of the Pharisees of old.
.
A Messianic Position on Gentiles and the ‘613 Laws’ of the Torah’ the list of 613 comes from Jewish tradition is all also false. Thus, since all of those 613 mitzvots are NOT actually in the Bible, but are added Jewish traditions, not all need to be followed. Because various ones, Messianic Jews misunderstand many other parts of the Bible and God’s purpose.
.
1 And certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.” 2 Therefore, when Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and dispute with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas and certain others of them should go up to Jerusalem, to the apostles and elders, about this question. 3 So, being sent on their way by the Church, they passed through Phoenicia and Samaria, describing the conversion of the Gentiles; and they caused great joy to all the brethren. 4 And when they had come to Jerusalem, they were received by the Church and the apostles and the elders; and they reported all things that God had done with them. 5 But some of the sect of the Pharisees who believed rose up, saying, “It is necessary to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.” 6 Now the apostles and elders came together to consider this matter. (Acts 15:1-6).
.
Circumcision was not the only issue. Then the following was sent out:
.
24 Since we have heard that some who went out from us have troubled you with words, unsettling your souls, saying, “You must be circumcised and keep the law” — to whom we gave no such commandment — 25 it seemed good to us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, 26 men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 27 We a Christian Church have therefore sent Judas and Silas, who will also report the same things by word of mouth. 28 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: 29 that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. (Acts 15:24-29)
.
So, what happened was the apostles and elders concluded that this meant that Christians no longer needed to keep the seventh-day Sabbath etc.:
.
According to the binding, Holy Spirit-inspired decision issued by the Emissaries and Elders, apart from saving faith in Messiah Jewish Yeshua, only four essential practices are necessary for Christians: abstaining from food dirtied by idolatry, from sexual immorality, from eating blood and from the meat of animals that have been strangled (see Acts 15, especially verses 19-20, 28-29). In addition to these Four Essentials, obedience to the Moral Law (for example, not stealing, not murdering, not committing adultery and not bearing false witness) is required. The Creator has written these moral laws on everyone’s heart (see Romans 2:14-15). Apart from these Four Essential Practices and the Moral Law, everything else – including the Sabbath, holidays and dietary laws – is to be regarded as done away with, under the area of Christian freedom and liberty.
.
Anyone Trying to earn a way to heaven in any way is immoral .
.
3 Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, “So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.'” And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world. 4 For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “And on the seventh day God rested from all his work.” 5 And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.” 6 It still remains that some will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience…9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience (Hebrews 4:3-6,9-11, NIV).
.
The New Testament clearly shows that the command to keep the seventh day Sabbath is in the New Testament was not enforced., mandated
.
And the New Testament teaches that there is no distinction between Jews and Gentiles in Jesus.
.
26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28)
.
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, 9 and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. (Matthew 3:7-10).
.
20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:20)
.
1 Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, 2 “Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.” (Matthew 15:1-2)
.
Interestingly, the Pharisees were quite concerned about ‘the tradition of the elders’ even though there was no biblical requirement to wash hands before eating bread. Now the Pharisees, like the Messianic Jews, prided themselves on keeping the entire law. But none but Jesus did.
.
27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. (Matthew 23:27-28)
.
In addition to overly relying on tradition, the New Testament teaches that the Pharisees broke and/or did not have a proper understanding of every one of the Ten Commandments
.
The Pharisees complained that the disciples ate with tax collectors and sinners, which was also a violation of their tradition (Luke 5:30); they complained that Jesus did that too (Luke 15:1-2).
.
5 Now when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 6 Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”
7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have taken no bread.”
8 But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves because you have brought no bread? 9 Do you not yet understand, or remember the five loaves of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up? 10 Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand and how many large baskets you took up? 11 How is it you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? — but to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees. (Matthew 16:5-12)
.
30 What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith; 31 but Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness. 32 Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. 33 As it is written: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” (Romans 9:30-33)
.
Works without proper faith is dead (cf. James 2:26).
.
Messianic Judaism does holds onto its Talmudic doctrines, perpetrating falsely the “Judaizing” heresy that Paul had to fight and afflicting the Body with legalism. They say that Jews and Gentiles all have to keep the same rules “one law for all.”
.
The New Testament teaches that:
9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. (Colossians 3:9-11)
.
12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. (Romans 10:12)
.
Some taught falsely that there are two sets of rules: one for Gentiles and the other for Jews.
.
Messianic Jews Normally Do Not Use the Biblical Name Church for the Christian Church but use the term synagogues. Messianic Jews tend to give their congregations Hebrew or other names than ‘Church ‘
.
The predominant biblical name of the true Church in the New Testament is ‘Church of God’ (Acts 20:28; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 10:32; 11:16,22; 15:9; 2 Corinthians 1:1; Galatians 1:13; 1 Thessalonians 2:14; 2 Thessalonians 1:4; 1 Timothy 3:5,15). “Jesus Christ of Nazareth…for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:10,12). “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). This is God’s gift by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Titus 3:5; 2 Corinthians 2:15; Romans 5:10).God is merciful (Exodus 34:6; Luke 6:36) and wants all to be saved (1 Timothy 2:4), yet because of various difficulties, few will find salvation in this age (Matthew 7:14; Luke 13:23-24; Romans 11:6-7; 2 Corinthians 4:4). Upon repentance and baptism, God justifies repentant Christians from their past sins. Christians then begin an ongoing process of “being saved“ as we grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ (2 Peter 3:18) and having Christ live us (Galatians 2:20). Salvation for those Christians in this age will be complete at the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:50-54); “Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation” (Hebrews 9:28).
.
We a Christian Church are not saved by our own works.
According to the Messianic Jews they falsely say that Jesus was a Torah observant, tallit wearing, synagogue attending, Sabbath and feast-keeping, kosher Jew who observed the 7 holy days too.. and yet this was never substantiated in the New Testament and why?
.
With even the original Christians there is no evidence that they attempted to look and dress like Jewish rabbis as many male Messianic Jews do.
.
The New Testament demonstrates the apostles did not appear to look like Jewish rabbis or Levitical priests. When, for one example, the Apostle Paul was arrested, the authorities did not recognize him as a Jew, but thought he was an Egyptian (Acts 21:37-38). Paul had to tell the military commander he was a Jew (Acts 27:39). Thus, Paul did not look like a Jewish rabbi, nor was he apparently wearing distinguishing phylacteries or tzitzits as the Messianic Jews do.
Many Messianic Jewish men wear yarmulkes/yamikas
.
God told the Jews only not any Christians to celebrate the Biblical feasts FOREVER (Leviticus 23:21, 31, 41, Exodus 12:14), yet this too next was never substantiated in the New Testament and why?
.
Also where in new Testament Scripture does Jesus or the Apostles tell any Christians to observe the original, seventh day Sabbath (Gen 2:1-2) It does not and why not? They clearly did not observe it..
.
Messianic Jews do lie and state that all of the Jewish believers in Jesus continued meeting at synagogue (or the Temple) for the Sabbath when clearly the Jews had kicked them out of them so all of the Christians met next on Sundays instead..
.
The Old Testament law was never intended by God to be the universal law for all people for all of time but only for the Jews and only till Jesus came..
.
Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. Hebrews 7:16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
.
Christians rightfully insist that “the law” was abolished. You won’t find anything in new testament Scripture to show that Torah was not abolished. None of the Old Testament law is binding on Christians today. When Jesus died on the cross, He put an end to the Old Testament law (Romans 10:4;Galatians 3:23–25; Ephesians 2:15). In place of the Old Testament law, Christians are under the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2), which is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…and to love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39). If we obey those two commands, we will be fulfilling all that Christ requires of us: “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Matthew 22:40).
.
Messianic Jews have falsely adopted certain non-biblical symbols that they sometimes display and sometimes wear.The ‘Star of David’ is one such symbol that many Messianic use
.
In the 17th century, it became a popular practice to put Magen Davids on the outside of synagogues, to identify them as Jewish houses of worship in much the same way that a cross identified a Christian house of worship
.
The Star of David is basically a hexagram, which is similar to some of those used for paganism, including witchcraft, sorcery, and other occult practices:
.
The Star of David does not have biblical origins. The Bible warns against idols (Exodus 20:4-6; 1 John 5:21) and paganism (Jeremiah 10:2-11) as well as the various sins from Egypt (Deuteronomy 5:6-8; cf. Hosea 8:3; Revelation 11:8). But many of the Messianic Jews overlook this for their traditions (cf. Matthew 15:2-9).
.
The Messianic Jews will display crosses as a symbol of their ‘Christianity’
.
Messianic Jews do Have a Different Focus

.

Do not be deceived by those that magnify Jewish feast days, ancestry, customs, the Saturday Sabbath and try to get you to observe the law of Moses. They might claim they are just like the early Christians but they are not
.
While it is certainly true that a real Christian can lose his salvation, one will never find in the New Testament that it can occur because of failure to observe the Jewish Saturday Sabbath, any Jewish feast days, Jewish dietary law, etc
.

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 (Col. 2:16).

.

Jesus Himself Cancelled The Mosaic Dietary Law

.

The dietary clean and unclean food laws that Moses wrote of were first discarded by the Lord himself:Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a man can make him ‘unclean’ by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him ‘unclean.’” After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him ‘unclean’? For it doesn’t go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out of his body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods ‘clean.’) (Mark 7:14-19).

.

Also read 1 Corinthians 10 and Romans 14 to see that the early Christians were not under any Mosaic dietary law as some today want to place us back under.

.
Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonial foods, which are of no value to those who eat them (Heb. 13:9).
.
Messianic false Views on ISRAEL IN PROPHECY
.
We as a Christian Church believe in God’s end-time plan for the nation of Israel and for the world has been revealed as all being judged under Jesus Christ
.
There is no New Testament substantiation by God, Jesus, Apostles for Israel’s right to return to the promised land in 1948 after God himself made Israel, Jerusalem desolate and dispersed them world wide in 70 ad.
.
We a Christian Church do not believe that the “rebirth of the State of Israel” is the “greatest miracle of our day,” and we believe that Romans 11 is discussing something completely different, to cite one example–and that ‘all Israel’ is absolutely not limited to the nation called Israel or the people called Jews.
.
Too many fundamentals, professing Christians now falsely do claim 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 “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.
.
I do not deny that Israel was once, in the past chosen by God from all the peoples of the world to be the focus of special blessing in the history of redemption which climaxed in Jesus Christ, the Messiah. “The LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth” (Deuteronomy 7:6). But Christians now alone are the chosen People
..
Nor do I deny that God promised to Israel the presently disputed land from the time of Abraham onward. God said to Moses, “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, ‘I will give it to your offspring’” (Deuteronomy 34:4). But neither of these Biblical facts leads necessarily to the endorsement of present-day Israel as the rightful possessor of all the disputed land. Israel may have such a right but now she does not. As that decision is not based on divine privilege.
..
I also do not believe rightfully that Israel today is the fulfillment of Scriptural prophecy, because the Lord promised to restore Israel in righteousness (Hosea 10:12). Israel went into spiritual adultery, idolatry. God raised up Hosea to pronounce judgment on them. All we are seeing in the Middle East today is hatred, war killings and a deadlock concerning the location of the temple mount (whom Muslims now control). The Jews are at the Weeping Wall today; that’s as far as they’ve got. Jews today are still not looking for their Redeemer, the Messiah, Jesus Christ. Sadly, Judaism still denies Christ as do the Muslims and many others.
.
Israel today is based much on the stolen land from others.. When the Government of Israel committed human rights violations, the Old testament prophets openly condemned them, 2 Kings 6:21 –23, 2 Chronicles 28:9-11, Nehemiah 5:7-11, Jeremiah 34:11-17, Amos 2:6-7, etc.

A central part of Messianic Judaism is the false belief in the physical and spiritual restoration of Israel, is taught in the Scriptures. The greatest miracle of our day has been the re-establishment or rebirth of the State of Israel according to prophecy (Ezek. 34:11-31; 36-39; Hos. 3; Amos 9:11-15; Zech. 12-14; Isa. 11; 43; 54; 60-62; 66; Rom. 11:1-34)
.
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 . PROVE ME WRONG FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT THEN.. Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’(Mt. 4:4,7,10 )
.
Nor does God approve of the Jews as even having have any further rights to the promised land anymore as well.. And all of the blessing once reserved for the Jews have all now been replaced by blessings for Christians only.. too bad some persons they are are falsely stuck in the Old Testament.. as they do also even miss Heaven doing that too. Sadly even today they the Jews like Cain are trying to reestablish their own false, INAPPLICABLE, even the old Judaism, religion now…. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/even-heaven-awaits-jewish-return-to-god-jesus-christ-and-rather-not-to-the-promised-earthly-land/

The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard Matt 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.
.
This parable 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. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/07/29/the-2-promised-returns/

In April 2013, the Church of Scotland published a report entitled “The Inheritance of Abraham: A Report on the Promised Land,” which included a discussion of Israeli and Jewish claims to the Land of Israel. The report said “there has been a widespread assumption by many Christians as well as many Jewish people that the Bible supports an essentially Jewish state of Israel. This raises an increasing number of difficulties and current Israeli policies regarding the Palestinians have sharpened this questioning,” and that “promises about the Land of Israel were never intended to be taken literally.” The church responded to criticism by saying that “The Church has never and is not now denying Israel’s right to exist; on the contrary, it is questioning the policies that continue to keep peace a dream in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory. This report is against the injustices leveled against the Palestinian people and how land is shared. It is also a reflection of the use or misuse of scripture to claim divine right to land by any group. The Church of Scotland denies the Jewish right to the Biblical land of Israel and which urges British and European pressure upon Israel over Jewish residence in Judea and Samaria.
.
THERE IS NO NEW TESTAMENT REFERENCE, THAT SUBSTANTIATED THE 3RD JEWISH RETURN TO THE HOLY LAND, THE PROMISE LAND. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/12/09/what-the-bible-says-about-israel-and-the-church http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/08/01/israels-past-promised-land/
.
IT IS EVIDENT THAT MUCH OF ZIONIST FALSE THEOLOGY IS BASED ON ISOLATED VERSES OF SCRIPTURES SPECIFICALLY NEGLECTING ALL THE VERSES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
.
.
You can try to apply any Old Testament verse to Israel as you want too but it is not necessarily valid, applicable true anymore.. Because of their OWN CLEAR rejection of Jesus Christ even today as their savior, and as their Lord Messiah all of the Jews had since the time of Jesus Christ stopped being God’s chosen people, their Jerusalem temple was destroyed permanently, and next no new God Ordained temple will be even be rebuilt with God’s approval anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God. Do note again that because of their OWN CLEAR rejection of Jesus Christ even today as their savior, and as their Lord Messiah all of the Jews had since the time of Jesus Christ stopped being God’s chosen people, their Jerusalem temple was destroyed permanently, and next no new God Ordained temple will be even be rebuilt with God’s approval anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God.
.
We a Christian Church believe in the End of Days, Second Coming of Jesus as ruling Messiah, resurrections of the dead, and the Millennium. We a Christian Church do NOT believe that a third temple must be built in Jerusalem ( Jewish Temple in Jerusalem Not Required. ). GOD HAD DESTROYED THE JERUSALEM TEMPLE AS JESUS HAD STATED AND IT WOULD NEVER BE REBUILT BECAUSE HE JESUS CHRIST NOW WAS THE TEMPLE http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/jewishtemple.htm/
.
Now what right can Israel today use to claim again their God promised land when they have as in time pasts also openly, undeniably rejected God, even Jesus Christ as their their God, Messiah, King, Savior, Healer, Lord, and the same Jesus who clearly predicted the expulsion of the Jews from Israel under the Romans next did not spell out the date of their return
.
The author of Hebrews says that Abraham hoped for a “heavenly” country and not an earthly one.
.
Hebrews 11:15-20 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. 17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure. 20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come. http://tcc.customer.sentex.ca/JLP/JLPs.php
.
Abraham was not a Jew, neither was Noah, Jared, Methuselah, Enos, Enoch, Adam, Eve, Seth, Arphaxad, etc etc etc. No temple, no temple laws, no Hebrews, no Hebrew laws. In written record, most of the laws came into being at the time of Moses. Who now are Abrahams’s seed? Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
.
And as for the Jews? So, at what point do they become “Hebrew” or Jewish… you mean when did they start to follow the Judaism religion.. under Moses.. Jews, Judaism is a religion today and not a blood line since after 70 AD when the Romans destroyed the temple… records in Jerusalem.. no one can prove anymore he is a Jew by his blood line.. only by choice.. Judaism itself is dead to God after they had killed their Messiah Jesus Christ..
.
Thus says the Lord God of Israel: You shed blood, yet you would keep possession on the land? You rely on your sword, you do abominable things… yet you would keep possession of the land?… I will make the land a desolate waste, and her proud strength will come to an end. (Ezekiel 33:25-29) On the basis of such sober warnings is it not more likely that Israel will experience an imminent exile rather than restoration? The tension between Christians who call for the implementation of international law and Zionists is no where more clearly polarized than on the issue of the status of Jerusalem.
.
The reality is that because of the death of Jesus Christ on the cross the New Covenant next replaces the Mosaic Covenant, which is commonly referred to as the “Old Covenant”. All of the The early Christian theologians saw the New Covenant in Christ as a replacement for the Mosaic Covenant for most of the last hundreds of years. The New Israel includes the Jews and the Christian Church as one body. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2011/10/03/dispensationalists-plymouth-brethren/
.
VALID PERSONS GOING TO HEAVEN CHRISTIANS DO BASE ALL OF THEIR VALID BIBLICAL DOCTRINES SOLELY ON THE NEW TESTAMENT SUBSTANTIATION BY JESUS OR THE APOSTLES, NOT JUST ON THE OLD TESTAMENT REFERENCES .
.
Now also all the promises of God now still only belong to the Christians only as they solely now are true Israel.. When Christ had Jesus shouted, “It is finished!” the Old Jewish Covenant with God had ended and AND A COVENANT was made effective, even clearly in the Jerusalem Temple where the curtain, veil in the Temple was torn
..
Mk 15: 37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
.
Lk 23: 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. 44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
.
Because of their OWN CLEAR rejection of Jesus Christ even today as their savior, and as their Lord Messiah all of the Jews had since the time of Jesus Christ stopped being God’s chosen people, their Jerusalem temple was destroyed permanently, and next no new God Ordained temple will be even be rebuilt with God’s approval anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God. Nor does God approve of the Jews as even having have any further rights to the promised land anymore as well.. And all of the blessing once reserved for the Jews have all now been replaced by blessings for Christians only.. too bad some persons they are are falsely stuck in the Old Testament.. as they do also even miss Heaven doing that too. Sadly even today they the Jews like Cain are trying to reestablish their own false, INAPPLICABLE, even the old Judaism, religion now….
.
(Heb 11:4 KJV) By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
.
(1 John 3:12 KJV) Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.
.
(Jude 1:11 KJV) Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core..
.
In contrast to what some so-called Messianic Jews are teaching, our English translation of the New Testament did NOT come from the Hebrew or the Latin! The New Testament was translated directly from the Greek and the Old Testament directly from the Hebrew and Aramaic. Hence, our English NT translation is not a twice-removed translation of the name or anything else. The same source went on and wrote about what they call the evolution of the name of Jesus from Hebrew to Greek to Latin to English. Sometimes rubbish, like that statement, is found on the web, so beware dear reader. It seems that these present-day Yeshua people are similar to Paul before he became a Christian, who stated that at that time I too was convinced that I ought to do all that was possible to oppose the name of Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 26:9).
.
Messianic Jews generally prefer to use Hebrew terms for Jesus, etc. And while those terms of themselves are normally fine, since the New Testament was mainly (or entirely) written in Greek, and the name Jesus is transliterated from Greek characters to be Iesous (believed to be pronounced ee-ay-sooce), God had not intended that Christians would need to use Hebrew terms such as Ye’shua, as the Messianic Jews falsely tend to use.
.
Would they please give us a Bible verse from the Old Testament Hebrew Scriptures or from the Greek New Testament that tells us Messiah’s name is Yeshua?
.
None have ever done so or ever will since Yeshua is never found in the OT or NT in reference to Messiah. Messiah is never identified by name in the Hebrew Old Testament Scriptures.
.
When they say the God of the Old Testament and the heavenly Father is Yahweh they lie. The truth is Jesus is actually the God of the Old Testament. Jesus is not the Father, but is a separate person from the Father. ,
,
Furthermore God whose Name is Yahweh in Hebrew who became flesh and made Himself known TODAY by His Greek Name which is Jesus AND is solely used and applicable, the Greek Name even meaning Christos, the anointed one who anoints one with the Holy Spirit and not any of the Hebrew names.. No Jews personal praise of God is now even accepted by God especially in their even their unredeemed and sinful state, sins now. Their praise do not reach God as their uncovered sins suffocate them. Nor does God approve of the Jews as even having have any further rights to the promised land anymore as well..
.
The eternal record reveals the following about the name of Jesus. Ponder these Scriptures carefully please:
.

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins (Mat 1:21).Do not stop him, Jesus said. No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me (Mark 9:39).You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus (Luke 1:31).

On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he had been conceived (Luke 2:21).

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name (John 20:31).

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk” (Acts 3:6).

By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see (Acts 3:16).

Then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed (Acts 4:10).

Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus (Acts 4:18).

Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus (Acts 4:30).

His speech persuaded them. They called the apostles in and had them flogged. Then they ordered them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go (Acts 5:40).

But when they believed Philip as he preached the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women (Acts 8:12).

Because the Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them; they had simply been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus (Acts 8:16).

But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. He told them how Saul on his journey had seen the Lord and that the Lord had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had preached fearlessly in the name of Jesus (Acts 9:27).

So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked Peter to stay with them for a few days (Acts 10:48).

Men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 15:26).

She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so troubled that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her (Acts 16:18).

On hearing this, they were baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus (Acts 19:5).

When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor (Acts 19:17).

Then Paul answered, “Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus” (Acts 21:13).

To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ – their Lord and ours: (1 Cor 1:2).

I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought (1 Cor 1:10).

When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present (1 Cor 5:4).

And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God (1 Cor 6:11).

always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph 5:20).

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth (Phil 2:10).

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (Col 3:17).

We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Th 1:12).

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and does not live according to the teaching you received from us (2 Th 3:6).

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise – the fruit of lips that confess his name (Heb 13:15).

And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us (1 John 3:23).
.
To the millions of people that have been saved, healed and delivered from sin, sickness and demons because of the precious name of Jesus these aforementioned types of attacks on the Savior’s name are most disturbing.

.
Jews that did repent and place their faith in Jesus were no better than the Gentiles that did the same:

.

This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus (Eph. 3:6).

.

He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit (Gal. 3:14).

.

As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Rom. 10:11-13).

.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise (Gal. 3:28, 29).

.

Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all (Col. 3:11).

.

For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink (1 Cor. 12:13).

.
The Jew’s natural birth now means nothing to God regarding who are his children and heirs according to the promise. Jews will still go to hell unless they receive heart circumcision by turning to Jesus, the Lord and Savior.
.

At the very beginning of the New Testament the false concept that the sin-embracing Jews were special in God’s eyes, because they were descendants of Abraham, was fiercely opposed. John the Baptist was first to combat this faulty and deadly concept:

.

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ 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” (Matt. 3:7-10).

.

For you, brothers, became imitators of God’s churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own countrymen the same things those churches suffered from the Jews, who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to all men in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit. The wrath of God has come upon them at last (1 Thess. 2:14-16).

.

We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen (Acts 10:39,40).

.

It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. When he saw that this pleased the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Acts 12:1-3).

.

The unbelieving Jews during the early Christian church were God-hating, Christ-rejecting, Christian-persecuting enemies of the gospel as they still are today

.

Peter was also a Jew that lived like a Gentile and not like a Jew: When I saw that they were not acting in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all, “You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs?” (Gal 2:14)

.
Despite certain similarities, there are major differences in the beliefs and practices of the Messianic Jews and the Church has a completely different view of God’s plan that does not have the focus on various Jewish regulations that the Messianic Jews have.
.
We a Christian Church believe that God’s plan will result in all needing the acceptance of salvation through Jesus Christ and that we need to be diligent to preach Christ’s gospel of the kingdom to the world as a witness to all nations (Matthew 24:14). To the Jews, Messianic ones included,
.
Messianic Jews truly do not contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 3).
.
The people magnifying and practicing the Law of Moses are claiming to reestablish the early church, but the truth is they are dangerously deceived and deceiving others by their teachings . The Sacred Name, Yeshua, Messianic Jew and Hebraic Root Movement are not only lacking, but often spiritually wrong and dangerous. To be more precise, their emphasis on Old Testament practices has been detrimental to true Christians to the degree that certainly some have lost their salvation by trying to be justified by the law of Moses (Gal. 5:2-4). This same type of problem existed in first-century Christianity and is now present again with us.

The Jewish Messiah’s given name at Birth also was Jesus Christ, a Greek name and not a Hebrew name.

.

The old Testament used in the JERSUALEM Jewish temple at the time of Jesus Christ was in Greek – Ever hear of the Greek translation of the Old testament, the Septuagint – Septuagint (sometimes abbreviated LXX) is the name given to the Greek translation of the Jewish Scriptures. The Septuagint has its …”The earliest version of the Old Testament Scriptures which is extant, or of which we possess any certain knowledge, is the translation executed at Alexandria in the third century before the Christian era: this version has been so habitually known by the name of the SEPTUAGINT “The Septuagint (from the Latin septuaginta, meaning “seventy,” and frequently referred to by the roman numerals LXX) is the Greek translation of the Old Testament. The name derives from the tradition that it was made by seventy (or seventy-two) Jewish scholars at Alexandria, Egypt during the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus (285-247 B.C.). it is not surprising that the Apostles should have used it more often than not in making citations from the Old Testament. The Jews upheld the Septuagint very strongly for the first 300 years as the Word of God, our blessed Lord and the apostles habitually quoted from it,

WHY IS IT THAT SOME PEOPLE FALSELY DENY THE TRUTH THAT JESUS DID NOT SPEAK HEBREW BUT GREEK AND WHAT IS THEIR ACTUAL AGENDA FOR DOING SO NOW TOO

.

AND WHO HAD FIRSTLY TOLD YOU that Jesus himself had spoken Hebrew? Where is that found in the whole New testament? Do give us all the verse.. .

.

Jesus, His own father spoke Greek . . You might say didn’t he speak Hebrew, the primary language of the Old testament Hebrew Scriptures? But what is the language of the New testament as the New Testament Gospels are preserved in Greek manuscripts, as Jesus himself solely spoke Greek.

.

THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN GREEK It is vital to understand that the New Testament was written in Koiné Greek, which was the common spoken and written language for hundreds of years in Palestine and the Roman Empire before the days of Jesus and His apostles. Greek was the universal language of commerce and trade.This is the language that Jesus, the apostles and early New Testament Church used. .

.

Some erroneously teach that the New Testament was originally written in the Hebrew language and was later translated into Greek. Because they have not studied the history of Palestine, they fail to realize that Hebrew had ceased to be spoken by the Jews many centuries before the New Testament era.

.

Under the Babylonian and Medo-Persian empires, 640-333 BC, Aramaic exerted the greatest influence. The writings of Daniel, who lived and worked during the time of the Chaldean and Persian Empires, show the extensive influence of Syriac and Chaldee, which were dialects of Aramaic. The Persians ruled Palestine from the time of Daniel and Ezra until its invasion by Alexander the Great in 333 BC. From that time, the influence of Aramaic was overshadowed by the influence of Greek. Samuel G. Green, a renowned Biblical scholar, described this significant change as follows: “… as a direct result of the conquests of Alexander the Great and his successors, the Greek tongue had been carried into almost all the countries of the civilized world, and had become the medium of commercial intercourse, the language of the courts, and, in fact, the universal literary tongue of the provinces afterwards absorbed in the Roman Empire. The natives of Alexandria and of Jerusalem , of Ephesus, and even of Rome, alike adopted it; everywhere with characteristic modifications, but substantially the same. Hence it had become a necessity to translate the Old Testament Scriptures into Greek….This translation, or the Septuagint, naturally became the basis of all subsequent Jewish Greek literature, and in particular of the New Testament ” (Green, Handbook to the Grammar of the Greek New Testament , pp. 155-156, emphasis added). . The Influence of Greek in Jewish Literature As Green stated, the Greek translation of the Old Testament was followed by other Jewish Greek literature. Rabbi B. Z. Wacholder is one of the leading scholars in Jewish Greek literature of the period from Alexander to Christ. Martin Hengel, a Biblical scholar of modern Germany, wrote of Wacholder’s opinions of this era: “Around the middle of the second century BCE [nearly two hundred years before the New Testament was written] the Jewish Palestinian priest Eupolemus , son of John, whom Judas [Maccabaeus] had probably sent to Rome with a delegation in 161 BCE, composed in Greek a Jewish history with the title ‘About the Kings of Judah’… B.Z. Wacholder, who analyses this work, goes very thoroughly in the last chapter of his book into further Jewish-Palestinian literature in Greek and traces it down to Justus of Tiberias and Josephus. In his view, its origin lies in the priestly aristocracy , the leading representatives of which had always also had a certain degree of Greek education from the second or even third century BCE” (Hengel, The “Hellenization” of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , p. 23, ). Greek was the language of Jerusalem in New Testament times—the language not only of the priestly aristocracy but also of business and commerce. Its influence was most noticeable in the city of Jerusalem. We again have a good deal of epigraphical evidence from historical inscriptions] to support this ( Ibid. , p. 9). . The importance of Greek in Jewish life is evidenced by the fact that the temple had a fully staffed Greek secretariat. Such offices were vital to the diplomatic, commercial and banking interest s of the nation. Hengel believed that an institution like the temple must have had a well-staffed Greek secretariat for more than two centuries (Ibid., p. 17, emphasis added). It was not difficult to find Greek-speaking Jews to serve as members of the temple secretariat. Many Levitical and priestly families had contact with Greek-speaking areas outside Palestine, and some families lived in these areas. The most aristocratic of the priestly families”the old Zadok ite family of the Oniads”lived in Egypt. The high priests that Herod appointed came from this and other Greek-speaking families. Herods selection of these high priests illustrates the active communication and freedom of movement that was taking place between Palestine and other lands: There was a constant and lively interchange with all the centres of the Diaspora [the lands where the Jews were dispersed]. Thus Herod first brought the priest Ananel (Josephus, Antiquities 15.22, 34, 39ff., 51) from Babylonia and later the priest Simon, son of Boethus, from Alexandria to Jerusalem, both presumably from the old Zadokite family of the Oniads, in order to appoint them high priests. Boethus could have been a descendant of Onias IV of Leontopolis who fl ed to Egypt in 164 BCE: that would explain the later status of his family in Jerusalem. The successful Simon, son of Boethus, who married a daughter, Mariam, to Herod, succ eeded in founding the richest high priestly family after the clan of Annas and at the same time a particular group among the Sadducees, the Boethusians, who were evidently close to the Herodian rulers (Hengel, The Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , p. 14). The high priests who returned to Jerusalem from Alexandria were Greek- speaking. The city of Alexandria, named fo r Alexander the Great, was renowned as a center of Greek culture and learning. It was the Jews of Alexandria who in earlier times had translated the Hebrew text into Greek for the Septuagint. When the families of the high priests returned to Jerusalem, they c ontinued to speak Greek. As Hengel wrote, these influential upper-cla ss families were not the only Greek-speaking Jews in Jerusalem: Be this as it may, we can assume th at Greek was spoken among the families of these aristocrats who had returned. It will also be the case that Greek was no less established among the leading families of Jerusalem than in the scriptoria and the bazaars of the city or at the tables of the money changers in the temple forecourt  (Ibid., p. 14, emphasis added). . In New Testament times, Greek was spoke n not only by the elite of Jerusalem but also by those who copied manuscripts in the scriptoria, by the middle-class businessmen who ran the bazaars, and by the bankers who served as money changers in the temple. The monetary exchange that was centered at the temple and all business transactions in Jerusalem required the speaking of Greek. This was the language of business and commerce in every province of the Roman Empire, including Palestine. , Greek Was Spoken in Galilee in New Testament Times While Jerusalem was the commercial, cultural and banking center of Palestine, the region of Galilee did not fall far behind. Galilee was perfectly positioned at the crossroads of trade entering and exiting Palestine. The entire region was bustling with 3 commerce, and the language of that trade and commerce was Greek. Hengel relates that by the time of Christ, the cities of Sepphoris and Tiberias in Galilee had Greek schools of renown. As carpenters, Joseph and Jesus might have worked in Sepphoris, which was only four or five miles from Jesus home. The Greek- speaking city of Tiberias, center of a thriving fishing industry, was near their home. These two cities of Galilee were both prominent in the Palestine of Jesus day. As centers of commerce and trade, they depended on merchants and tradesmen who could speak fluent Greek. Their schools ranked among the best. As Hengel related, the training received in these schools of Galilee was on a par with the great institutions of higher learning in Antioch and Alexandria: Wacholder believes that the rhetorical training which Justus received in the Tiberias of Herod Antipas and Agrippa II was on a par with the ˜cosmopolitan Greek of Antioch or Alexandria, whereas Jerusalem could not offer Josephus educational possibilities of the same high quality (Ibid., p. 24). The historian Josephus, who belonged to one of the leading priestly families of Jerusalem, spoke Greek; but his Greek was far from the quality of the Greek spoken and written by Justus, who had studied Greek at Tiberias. As the following quote relates, the linguistic and rhetorical education of Justus of Tiberias was far superior to that of Josephus of Jerusalem: Therefore Josephus stresses at the end of his Antiquities that his Jewish education was more perfect than his Greek, and that he still found difficulties in speaking impeccable Greek ( Antt . 20.262-4)….Presumably he also refers to this deficiency because his rival and opponent Justus of Tiberias had had a better linguistic and rhetorical education….The patriarch Photius of Constantinople (c . 820-886) still praised the stylistic precision and evocative character of Justus history of the Jewish kings, which extended from Moses to the death of Agrippa II , the last Jewish king (Ibid., p. 24). . Like Josephus, all members of the priestly families were trained in both Hebrew and Greek. Hebrew continued to be spoken by the priests in the temple and the Scribes in the synagogues for religious events and discussions only. When at home with their families or conducting business in the market, they spoke Greek. The common people, who had long before lost their knowledge of Hebrew, spoke Aramaic in general, but those who dealt in commerce and trade also spoke Greek. According to Hengel, Judaea, Samaria and Galilee were bilingual (or better, trilingual) areas. While Aramaic was the vernacular of ordinary people, and Hebrew the … language of religious worship and of scribal discussion, Greek had largely be come established as the linguistic medium for trade, commerce and administration (Ibid., p. 8). . Historical inscriptions attest to the fact that Galilee in the early Christian era was a bilingual society. Hengel states: In economic terms Galilee was to a large extent dependent on the completely Hellenized Phoenician cities, especially Acco/Ptolemais and Tyre. The great cemetery in Beth-shearim between Nazareth and Haifa, which comes from between the second and fourth centuries CE, contains predominantly Greek inscriptions. Some of those buried there come from the Phoenician metropolises. After the death of R. Jehuda han-Nasi (after 200 ) the tombs of Beth-shearim took on a more than regional significance, like the Holy City before 70 CE. The marked increase in Greek inscriptions compared to those in Hebrew and Aramaic (218 to 28) is bound up with the further development of the process of Hellenization in the second to the fourth centuries CE … (Ibid., pp. 15-16) . Hengel points out the significance of these inscriptions, which supports the earlier findings of Schlatter and contradicts the opinion of the History of Religions school: In the meantime we also have two bilingual inscriptions from Judaea and Galilee, quite apart from the large number of testimonies to use of the Greek language. Almost ninety years ago Schlatter had a completely correct view of the linguistic situation, a clearer one 4 than the representatives of the History of Religions school. The constant discovery of new inscriptions conf irms this picture of a fundamentally multilingual society. Schlatter already drew atte ntion to this situation in his famous study on ˜The Language and Homeland of the Fourth Evangelist (which is in no way taken seriously enough): ˜Here too the inscriptions are the decisive authority for assessing the linguistic question (of a bilingual situation, M.H.)  (Ibid., p. 9). . Evidence That Greek Was Spoken by Jesus and the Apostles In addition to the above evidence, the scholar Samuel G. Green wrote concerning the language spoken by Jesus and the apostles: It was in the Greek of the Septuagint thus modified that, in all probability, our Lord and His apostles generally spoke. The dialect of Galilee (Matt. xxvi. 73) was not a corrupt Hebrew, but a provincial Greek (Green, Handbook to the Grammar of the Greek Testament , p. 156). The Gospel accounts verify that Jesus and His disciples, who were Galileans, spoke the Greek dialect of Galilee and not a corrupted Hebrew; hence Jesus words to the scribes and Pharisees at the temple: Therefore, Jesus said to them, ˜If God were your Father, you would love Me, because I proceeded forth and came from God. For I have not come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why don’t you understand My speech ? Because you cannot bear to hear My words  (John 8:42-43, emphasis added). In recording Jesus words, John shows that the scribes and Pharisees had difficulty understanding His Galilean dialect. . The Pharisees had a problem with the Greek dialect of Jesus and His apostles throughout their ministries. As further evidence of this, Matthew comments that it was Peters Galilean Greek that gave him away during Jesus trial: Now Peter was sitting outside in the court; and a maid came to him, saying, ˜You also were with Jesus the Galilean. But he denied it before everyone, saying, ˜I dont know what you are talking about. And after he went out into the porch, another maid saw him and said to those there, ˜This man was also with Jesus the Nazarean. Then again he denied it with an oath, saying , ˜I do not know the man. After a little while , those who were standing by came to Peter and said, ˜Truly, you also are one of them, for even your speech shows that you are  (Matt. 26:69-73, emphasis added). As the Greek in Peters epistles testifies, he was speaking and writing a better Greek than those at Jerusalem. The Greek they spoke would be the Greek that would carry the gospel message to the world and would be recorded for all time in the New Testament. The very names of Jesus apostles are Greek: Among the twelve disciples of Jesus, two, Andrew and Philip, bear purely Gr eek names, and in the case of two others the original Greek name has been Aramaized. Thaddaeus ( tadda’j ) is probably a short form of Theodotus (or somethi ng similar), and Bartholomew ( Bartholomaios = bar- talmaj ) derives from (bar) Ptolemaios. The blind beggar Bartimaeus (Bar-Timaios) in Jericho, who becomes a follower of Jesus, can also be mentioned in this connection (Hengel, The ˜Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , p. 16). Even the areas that Jesus disciples came from bear witness to their speaking Greek: The information that Simon Peter, Andrew and Philip came from Bethsaida (John 1.44) could perhaps have hi storical value, since Her ods son Philip refounded this place soon after his accession as the polis Julias (before 2 BCE) in honour of Augustus daughter Julia, and it was ther efore more markedly ˜Hellenized than the surrounding villages…. . At all events, Simon Peter must have been bilingual, since otherwise he could not have engaged so successfully in missionary work outside JudaeaAs we find in historical records and in Scripture, those who responded to the preaching of the gospel were primarily Greek-speaking people. It is logical, therefore, to conclude that Jesus also spoke to them in Greek. Scripture attests to the fact that many early converts were Greek speaking: There are many references to what were in all probability bilingual members of the [early Christian] community from the upper and middle classes: mention should be made of Johanna, the wife of Chuza, of Herod Antipas, i.e., his steward; the tax farmers, like Zacchaeus in Jericho; then men like Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathaea. The mysterious Manaen (Menachem) in Antioch, whose mother is perhaps mentioned by Papias, the boyhood friend of Herod Antipas, Mary and her son John Mark, the relations of Barnabas, Silas-Silvanus, Barsabbas Justus, who similarly emerges again in Papias, the prophet Agabus and others may similarly belong to this milieu. Their circle is enlarged by Disapora Jews resident in Jerusalem like Barnabas from Cyprus and Simon of Cyrene with his sons Alexander and Rufus. Simons sons and his mother were perhaps known later in the Christian community in Rome, and Jason of Cyprus, Paul’s host (Act s 21:16), whose mother tongue was already Greek, even if they still understood Aramaic or had relearned it (Ibid., pp. 17-18). 5 with Cornelius (Ibid., p. 16). . The Followers of Jesus as we find in historical records and in Scripture, those who responded to the preaching of the gospel were primarily Greek-speaking people. It is logical, therefore, to conclude that Jesus also spoke to them in Greek. Scripture attests to the fact that many early converts were Greek speaking: . Early Christians in Jerusalem Spoke Greek. Luke records that some of the earliest members of the church at Jerusalem were Greek-speaking Jews. Hengels statement concerning the rapid growth of Christianity in this community follows: What was decisive for the subsequent course of primitive Christianity, however, was the amazingly rapid and intensive effect of the new message on the Greek-speaking Hellenists in Jerusalem….Here we have that social stratum in Jerusalem the significance of which … has so far been neglected. The circle of Christians who came from it cannot have been all that small, otherwise their missionary activity in Jerusalem would not have provoked so much of a stir and caused such offense  (Hengel, The ˜Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , pp. 43-44). In the book of Acts, Luke gives us insight into this early community of Greek- speaking Jews from which the first evangelists were chosen and from which the gospel spread to all Judea. Luke wrote: Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a complaint by the Greeks [ KJV ˜Grecians refers to Greek- speaking Jews] against the Hebrews [Jews whose native tongue was Aramaic], because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. And after calling the multitude of disciples to them , the twelve said, ˜It is not proper for us to leave the Word of God in order to wait on tables. Therefore, brethren, search out from among yourselves seven men of good repute, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the Word. And this declaration was pleasing to all the multitude; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit; and Philip; and Prochorus; and Nicanor; and Timon; and Parmenas; and Nicolas, who was a proselyte of Antioch. And they set them before the apostles; and after praying, they laid their hands on them. And the Word of God spread, and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem was multiplied exceedingly, and a great multitude of the priests were obedient to the faith (Acts 6:1-7). All seven of those chosen in Lukes account bear Greek names. These Hellenized Jews spoke Greek as their native language as attested to by Hengel, who gives us 6 linguistic evidence: In contrast to the use of ˜Hellenizing and ˜Hellenism stamped by culture and intellectual history which is customary among theologians, and which ultimately goes back to Droysen, in antiquity the verb and the rare noun­– referred almost exclusively to language . Only rarely did these words have a comprehensive meaning relating to culture and civilization”with one significant exception to which we shall have to return”and there is evidence of this only in the post- Christian period. In Christian literature fro m the third-fourth century CE the term and the other terms associated with it then generally came to mean ˜pagan. Before that, both terms primarily and in the first instance denoted an impeccable command of the Greek language. This also gives us a fairly clear criterion for distinction in this investigation : ˜Hellenistic Jews and Jewish Christians are (in the real, original meaning of the word) those w hose mother tongue was Greek, in contrast to the Jews in Palestine and in the Babylonian Diaspora who originally spoke Aramaic. It is in this way, in terms of mother tongue, that Luke understands the distinction between´ and … in Acts 6.1 (cf. 9.29). The mother- (or main) language of the´ is Greek and that of the …Aramaic. However, we meet these two groups in Jerusalem itself, in the Jewish metropolis of the Holy Land”and that goes against the usual dividing line. It is too easily forgotten that in the time of Jesus, Greek had already been established as a language for more than three hundred years and already had a long and varied history behind it. . As early as the third century [BC] in different parts of Palestine, we have a whole series of testimonies to Greek as a language, and they are slowly but steadily continuing to in crease in number. The Greek language had already long been accepted not only in the former Philistine or Phoenician areas on the coast and (in the third century BCE) in the ˜G raeco-Macedonian cities in the interior, but also (though not so intensively) in areas settled by Jews and Sa maritans (Hengel, The ˜Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , pp. 7-8). Hengel believes that because Greek wa s spoken almost exclusively among this group of Hellenist Jews in Jerusalem, Jesus and Hi s apostles must have evangelized them in Greek: During the lifetime of Jesus, the message of Jesus also reached Diaspora Jews in Jerusalem who almost only spoke Greek or spoke it exclusively ; it was from among them that that group of Hellenists was recruited which separated because of its worship in Greek and as a special group in the community became significant in Jerusalem with such amazing rapidity. John 12.20f. could be a later reflection of this transition. Perhaps John 4.38 is a reference to their mission in Samaria (Acts 8.4ff.). outside Palestine in Antioch or elsewhere. In other words, the roots of the ˜Jewish- Christian/Hellenistic or more precisely Greek-speaking Jewish Christian community in which the message of Jesus was formulated in Greek for the first time clearly extend back to the very earliest community in Jerusalem , and accordingly the first linguistic development of its kerygma [p reaching of the gospel] and its Christology [the study of Christ] must have already take n place there (Ibid., p. 18, emphasis added). 7 certainly and Ashdod probably they outnumbered the Hellenized Gentile population. Philip, who came from the group around Stephen, may have preached primarily in Greek in the coastal plain and particularly in Caesarea. That Greek was the principal language in these cities is again confirmed by Jewish epitaphs and synagogue inscriptions (Ibid., p. 14). It is evident that Paul, whom God select ed to preach to the Gentiles, also spoke Greek. Luke recorded that shortly after Saul’s conversion, he became involved in a dispute with the Greek-speaking Jews of Jerusalem (Acts 9:26-31). In his epistle to the Philippians, Paul described himself as a Hebrew of Hebrews (Phil. 3:5). Paul had been trained at the feet of Gamaliel, the leading rabbi of that period in Jewish history, and Paul was fully capable of speaking Hebrew to the Pharisaic Jews of Jerusalem (Acts 21:40). However, Paul did not customarily speak Hebrew. He was equally knowledgeable in the Greek language, as the same passage in the book of Acts shows (Acts 21:37-39). Paul could not have preached throughout Asia without this ability to speak Greek. Thus the records of the New Testament demonstrate that the preaching of the gospel was carried out almost exclusively in Greek. . The Gospel Was Recorded in Greek .The books of the New Testament were written between 26 and 96 AD, a period of almost seventy years. As internal evidence reveals, Jesus disciples recorded His message and began to circulate these writings throughout Palestine and the Empire at a very early date. These documents were later collected into the Gospel accounts” Matthews account may have appeared as early as 35 AD; Mark wrote his account shortly after, in 42 AD, and Luke wrote his account around 59 AD. The Gospel of John also was written about 42 AD. In 50 AD Paul wrote the first of his epistle s that would appear in Scripture. The rest of Paul’s epistles were written between 51 and 67 AD. The epistle of James was written around 40-41 AD. The epistles of Pe ter were written between 63 and 66 AD. Jude was written sometime around 67 AD. The letters of I, II and III John were written about 63-64 AD. The book of Hebrews was written from Rome about 61 AD. Thus the basic canon of the New Testament was completed by the time the Jewish Wars began” that is, about 66 AD. The book of Revelation, the final book of the New Testament, was written by the aged apostle John about 95-96 AD. The early New Testament text was copied and preserved by the brethren in Asia Minor. It was this text that was generally adopted by Christians in the 4th century as the text of the New Testament. From that time forward, it has been known as the Byzantine text. The Byzantine text, of which the King James Version is a translation, is the most authoritative Greek text of the New Testament. Its role as the leading Greek text dates back to the beginning of the Byzantine period, for which the text is named: The Byzantine text is found in the vast majority of the Greek New Testament manuscripts. It is called Byzantine because it was the Greek New Testament text in general use throughout the greater part of the Byzantine Period (312-1453). . For many centuries before the Protestant Reformation this Byzantine text was the text of the entire Greek Church, and for more than three centuries after the Reformation it was the text of the entire Protestant Church. Even today it is the text which most Protestants know best, since the King James Version and other early Protestant translations were made from it (Hills, The King James Version Defended , p. 40). As Hills explains, the authenticity of the Byzantine text is supported by a history dating back to the apostolic era: This general trend in the Greek Church toward the Byzantine (true) text first evidenced itself in Antioch and Asia Minor.. . Some claim that the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew and then translated into Greek. However, the record s of early church history do not support this assertion. Tatian, Papias , Tertullian and Irenaeus, to name but a few writers of the early church, describe the original writings a nd quote from them. Yet not a single quote is taken from a Hebrew text”all ar e taken from Greek texts. Although Papias asserts that Matthew compiled his early reports in Hebrew, no evidence is given. Early translations of the New Testament are all based on Greek texts. The Harmony of Tatian , translated in 170 AD, is based on a Greek original, as is The Muratorian Canon . The Old Latin version translated in 180 AD is based on a Greek original. Early Gothic, Egyptian, Ethiopian, Armenian and Palestinian versions are all based on Greek originals. Even the Aramaic versions of the New Testament are translations from the Greek (see The Books and the Parchments , by F. F. Bruce, p. 189). . No evidence of a Hebrew original has been found in all the centuries that have followed the writing of the New Testament. . Matthews and Lukes use of terms known to the Greek-speaking community of Jesus day contradicts the claim that their Gospels were not written until later generations and verifies that they wrote in Greek to an audience that understood Greek. From the beginning of Mathews Gospel, it is evident that he was not writing to a Hebrew- speaking people. The following passage from Matthew illustrates this: And the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: Now His moth er Mary had been betrothed to Joseph; but before they came together, she was found to be with child of the Holy Spirit. And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man , and not willing to expose her publicly, was planning to divorce her secretly. But as he pondered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, ˜Joseph, so n of David, do not be afraid to take Mary to be your wife, because that which ha s been begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she shall give birth to a son, and you shall call His name Jesus; for He shall save His people from their sins. Now all this came to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, ˜Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall give birth to a son, and they sh all call His name Emmanuel; which is, being interpreted, ˜God with us  (Matt. 1:18-23). The name Emmanuel is a transliteration of the Greek which is a transliteration of the Hebrew . The fact that Matthew had to interpret the meaning of this Hebrew name illustrates that he was writing in Greek to a Greek- speaking audience. Further evidence that Matthew wrote in Greek to a people who spoke Greek, and not in Hebrew, is furnished by two grammatical structures unique to the Greek: the articular infinitive and the genitive absolute. Neither of these grammatical structures has a comparable structure in Hebrew. Matthews use of the articular infinitive offers absolute evidence that his Gospel was written in Greek. In English, the word to is always used with the infinitive form of the verb, as in to be, to come, and to speak. The Greek infinitive is similar to the English infinitive unless it is preceded by the de finite article the. When the definite article the is used, the infinitive is known as an articular infinitive . In New Testament Greek, when the articular infinitive is combined with a preposition, it limits the infinitive to a specific time period. Dana and Mantey stated the following: Nothing distinguishes the noun force of the infinitive more than its use with the [definite] article…. This item is one of the proofs of the general good quality of New Testament Greek  ( A Manual Grammar of the Greek New Testament , p. 211). . Within the text of Acts 6:1-7, it is quite evident that Greek was the mother tongue of the original evangelists who spread the gospel far and wide. As Hengel pointed out, their names support this conclusion. The cities in which these men evangelized were Greek-speaking communities. Hengel wrote, Mention should of course be made here of the ˜Seven as the spokesmen of the Hellenist community (Acts 6.5), who all have Greek names, and naturally”above all others as far as his effect on the Christian church and world history is concerned”of Sha’ul/Paul, who studied the Torah in Jerusalem and persecuted the community of Christian ˜Hellenists  (Hengel, The ˜Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ , p. 18). Furthermore, shortly after Saul’s conversion, he became involved in a dispute with the Grecians of Jerusalem (Acts 9:26-31). The word Grecians in this passage does not refer to Gentile Greeks but to Greek-speaking Jews. Here is Scriptural evidence that Paul used the Greek language, not Hebrew. There is no question that Paul spoke Greek, and all of his epistles were written in Greek. Hebrew was not the language of Palestine during the days of Jesus ministry; neither was it the language of the apostles. Therefore, it can be concluded that Jesus and all of the apostles spoke Greek, and the entire New Testament was originally written in Koine Greek. God inspired men to preserve the New Testament in Koine Greek. This text, as noted earlier in this chapter, is commonly known today as the Byzantine Text. http://www.cbcg.org/franklin/SA/SA_NT_Originally_Written_in_Greek.pdf . Several sects, Messianc Jews and and even fundamentalist churches falsely claim that Jesus Christ and the apostles only spoke Hebrew, and that the original monographs of the New Testament were all written in Hebrew, and later translated into Greek. They firstly consider Greek to be a pagan language. and secondly if that was so it is clearly an insult to the Jews. They maintain and teach , that ancient Judea was a “backwater” area of the Roman Empire, and the people were ignorant as a whole of the Greek language, although it is admitted that Greek was the “lingua franca” and “language of commerce” throughout the Roman Empire. But however, new archaeological discoveries have undermined the false speculations of the falsehood scholars and brought into clear light the fact that Greek was well known among the Jews, especially the priesthood, leadership class, and the merchant class. In particular, Greek was well understood in “Galilee of the Gentiles,” the region where Jesus Christ of Nazareth was raised, and grew up as a young lad. There is no doubt, therefore, that Jesus and the original apostles all spoke Greek – Jerusalem Jews or Jewish Christians who habitually spoke only Greek commonly. “All four Gospels depict Jesus conversing with Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect of Judea, at the time of his trial (Mark 15;2-5; Matthew 27:11-14; Luke 23:3; John 18:33- 38). Even if we allow for obvious literary embellishment of these accounts, there can be little doubt that Jesus and Pilate did engage in some kind of conversation . . . In what language did Jesus and Pilate converse? There is no mention of an interpreter. Since there is little likelihood that Pilate, a Roman, would have been able to speak either Aramaic or Hebrew, the obvious answer is that JESUS SPOKE GREEK at his trial before Pilate” Similarly, when Jesus conversed with the Roman centurion, a commander of a troop of Roman soldiers, the centurion most likely did not speak Aramaic or Hebrew. It is most likely that Jesus conversed with him in Greek, the common language of the time throughout the Roman empire (see Matt.8:5-13; Luke 7:2-10; John 4:46-53). A royal official of Rome, in the service of Herod Antipas, a Gentile, would most likely spoken with Jesus in Greek. In John 12, where we are told: “And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus” (John 12:20-21). These men were Greeks, and most likely spoke Greek, which Philip evidently understood, having grown up in the region of “Galilee of the Gentiles” (Matt.4:15) — a place of commerce and international trade, where Greek would have been the normal language of business. , Jesus, the ‘carpenter’ (tekon, Mark 6:3), like Joseph, his foster- father (Matthew 13:55), would have had to deal with them in GREEK. . Most of the Jewish Funerary Inscriptions in the “Galilee of the Gentiles,” were GREEK , no less than 1,600 Jewish epitaphs — funerary inscriptions — are extant from ancient Palestine dating from 300 B.C. to 500 A.D. “One of the most surprising facts about these funerary inscriptions is that most of them are IN GREEK — approximately 70 percent; about 12 percent are in Latin; and only 18 percent are in Hebrew or Aramaic.” “The Jewish people, because of their widespread dispersion in the Empire, for business and commercial purposes, mainly, spoke Greek rather fluently — and this knowledge and usage of Greek was also common throughout Judea, as this new “funerary inscription” evidence attests! This really should not be surprising at all. The Greek influence in Judea had grown very significantly since the days of Alexander the Great, circa 330 B.C. By the time of Antiochus Epiphanes, circa 168-165 B.C., Hellenism had become very strong, and many of the high priests had become “Hellenists,” leading to the Maccabean revolt. In successive generations, the Greek influence never abated, particularly among the business, commercial and priestly crowd. Many of the priests, being Sadducees, were greatly influenced by Greek culture and contact.” “The great rabbi Judah ha-Nasi, the compiler of the Mishnah (a collection of Jewish oral law) in about 200 C.E., was buried in Beth She-arim; the majority of pious Jews who wanted to be buried with him at Beth She-arim had their funerary inscriptions written in Greek.” . “Greek, of course, was in widespread use in the Roman empire at this time. Even the Romans spoke Greek, as inscriptions in Rome and elsewhere attest. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that THAT GREEK WAS ALSO IN COMMON USE AMONG THE JEWS OF PALESTINE. The Hellenization of Palestine began even before the fourth-century B.C. conquest by Alexander the Great. Hellenistic culture among the Jews of Palestine spread more quickly after Alexander’s conquest, especially when the country was ruled by the Seleucid monarch Antiochus IV Epiphanes (second century B.C.), and later under certain Jewish Hasmonean and Herodian kings” .

Now to me it only makes sense that the New Testament was written in Greek. Think of who Paul was: the “Apostle to the Gentiles”. Obviously he was writing to Greek speaking people, so he would write to them in Greek. There are more reasons, but this is an obvious one. I have run into a new reason why some people dispute the notion that Jesus spoke Aramaic. It has to do with the passion among some Muslims for an Aramaic-speaking Jesus. Aramaic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew, Arabic, and similar languages. Only during the time of the Assyrian Empire (8th century BC), Aramaic became used throughout the Ancient Near East as the language of diplomacy not at the time of Jesus here on earth During and before the time of Jesus, there wasn’t just one version of Aramaic being used in Judea and beyond. Even many grave inscriptions around Jerusalem at the time of Jesus are not in Aramaic, not in Hebrew but in Greek.. Muslims falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Aramaic as a support for the truth of Islam.
.
Jews falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Hebrew as a support for the truth of Judaism . A few scholars believe that people in Nazareth spoke Hebrew as their primary language. This is possible, but unlikely. Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) So what evidence do we have that Jesus spoke Hebrew? We do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew As one who believes about Jesus all the things orthodox Christians do, it would not impact my faith one jot or tittle if Jesus spoke Hebrew rather than Aramaic, or Greek rather than Hebrew.but the truth is Jesus spoke Greek still..Now, you don’t have to spend the next several years learning ancient languages because English KJV translation of the biblical text is very much reliable it was based on the Tyndale translation of the Greek too..The question of Jesus’ primary language is settled if we knew what people in Nazareth in the first decades of the first century A.D. were speaking and the Romans made it clear.. Greek or Latin only.. and we have no evidence for the common use of Hebrew in Nazareth and the surrounding region of Galilee.it is worth nothing that Greek was commonly used in certain strata of Galilean society. This began when Alexander the Great conquered the region in 332 B.C. Under his rule, and under the rule of those who followed him (the Ptolemies and the Seleucids), Greek was the language of government and commerce. The Romans used Latin for official communication, but Greek was the common language of the Empire. In fact, Nazareth was a short walk from Sepphoris, one of the major cities of Galilee, where Greek would have been the everyday language of the marketplace.The earliest manuscripts of the New Testament Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – are written in Greek.
.
Yes there is overwhelming evidence, both historical and linguistic that shows that the New Testament was never originally written in Hebrew, as some Jews claim but they are known liars.. Show us this original Hebrew transcript of Matthew.. none exists..None.. all is in Greek.. and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek Not one.. The New Testament, however, was written in Greek. This seems strange, since you might think it would be either Hebrew or Aramaic. However, Greek was the language of scholarship during the years of the composition of the New Testament from 50 to 100 AD. The fact is that many Jews could not even read Hebrew anymore, and this disturbed the Jewish leaders a lot! So, around 300 BC a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Greek was undertaken, and it was completed around 200 BC.
.
Gradually this Greek translation of the Old Testament, called the Septuagint, was widely accepted and was even used in many synagogues. It also became a wonderful missionary tool for the early Christians, for now the Greeks could read God’s Word in their own tongue. So again the New Testament authors wrote in Greek. They did not, however, use really high-class or classical Greek, but a very common and everyday type of Greek. For many years some scholars ridiculed the Greek of the New Testament because many of its words were strange to those who read the writings of the great Greek classical authors such as Plato and Aristotle. But later many records were uncovered of ordinary people, and amazingly there were the same common terms used in everyday speech! The ridicule dried up accordingly. The prominent first century Roman historian Josephus was a Jew himself who wrote in Greek.. it should be understood that there is a long history of “Hellenism” (Greek culture/influence) among the Jewish people, both in ancient Alexandria as well as in the Promised Land itself. Ossuaries dating from the Second Temple period indicate Greek artwork and Greek versions of Hebrew names In Biblical Archaeological Review , Pieter W. Van Der Horst writes, “One of the most surprising facts about funerary inscriptions [extant from ancient Palestine dating from 300 B.C. to 500 A.D] is that most of them are in Greek – approximately 70 percent; about 12 percent are in Latin; and only 18 percent are in Hebrew or Aramaic.” Furthermore, since the time of Alexander the Great (c. 330 B.C), many of the Jewish High Priests had become Hellenists ; which led to the rejection of the Temple by the Essene Community and eventually to the later Maccabean revolts.
.
Even the Dead Sea Scrolls include Greek texts among the Hebrew and Aramaic. ; So it’s clear that Hellenistic culture and Greek language were pervasive influences in Israel both before, during, and after the time when Jesus lived in ancient Israel and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek all of the ancient textual evidence for the New Testament is in Koine Greek, and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek.
.
The New Testament is by far the best-attested (and best preserved) literature of antiquity, with manuscript evidence dating back to the first century. For example, the Magdalen Fragments are written in a style of Koine Greek that was current in the 1st Century A.D. during the very lives of the apostles. Indeed, ancient papyrus expert Carsten Thiede and other scholars regard certain fragments from the Gospel of Matthew to be an eyewitness account. We have some anecdotal evidence of a gospel that underlies the others gospel accounts, but it is clear — both from history and from the textual evidence we have – that the Holy Spirit chose to use Koine (i.e., “common”) Greek as the language to reach out to the world. This is true, incidentally, of the Torah and Nakh, which were also translated into Koine Greek (i.e., the Septuagint, or LXX). Many of the oldest Biblical fragments among the Dead Sea Scrolls correspond more closely with the LXX than with the (later) Masoretic text, and indeed we have evidence of Koine Greek manuscripts that were discovered in the Qumran caves themselves…
.
Now when Jesus went into the synagogue and was handed the scroll of Isaiah that that scroll was written in Greek? and the the New Testament Gospels do include non-Greek words in the text (spelled with Greek letters). And some of these words are Aramaic ?So, while Jesus’ use of them may reflect his Aramaic speech, we can’t even be 100% sure of this. And we do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew ..
.
Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke. The so-called “biblical case” for the Hebrew speaking Jesus rests mainly on one verse in, not in the Gospels, but in Acts of the Apostles. You absurdily cannot make a major statement with one fact, one verse.. when you have a whole Greek New testament.. one cannot use this as proof that he always spoke Hebrew, or mainly spoke Hebrew, or even spoke Hebrew in any other circumstance. In no other place does the New Testament tell us that Jesus spoke Hebrew. The fact that the Gospels are written in Greek shows that most of the earliest Christians, including some who followed Jesus during his earthly ministry, knew Greek and used it often, perhaps as their first language. Many Jewish writings from the era of Jesus were written in Greek, including works such as 2 Maccabees and 1 Esdras. Other Hebrew writings were being translated into Greek in Jerusalem (the book of Esther, for example, in 114 B.C.). Speaking of Jerusalem, scholars have found some ninety Greek inscriptions on ossuaries (boxes for bones) that date to around the time of Jesus and were found in or around Jerusalem.
.
Ever since Alexander the Great conquered Judea in 332 B.C., Greek had been the language of government and, increasingly, commerce and scholarship. Though Aramaic continued to be spoken by many, Greek grew in its popularity and influence. In the time of Jesus, well-educated Jews, mainly those of the upper classes, would have known and used Greek. So would those who were involved in trade or government Get wise and learn the truth. Jesus was not handed the dead sea scrolls.. he read from the Greek Scroll Bible. The presence and pervasiveness of Greek in Judea is demonstrated by a discovery in the Nahal Hever region of the Judean Desert near the Dead Sea. In a cave, a scroll was found that contains substantial portions of the minor prophets in Greek. The so-called Nahal Hever Minor Prophets Scroll, dated around the time of Jesus, shows the influence and popularity of Greek, even among highly religious Jew..
.
In Matthew 8:5-13, for example, Jesus entered into dialogue with a Roman centurion. The centurion almost certainly spoke in Greek. And, as Matthew tells the story, he and Jesus spoke directly, without a translator. The same could be said about Jesus’ conversation with Pontius Pilate prior to his crucifixion (Matthew 27:11-14; John 18:33-38). If Jesus knew enough Greek to converse with a Roman centurion and a Roman governor, where did he learn it? at Home and in school.. Jesus’ hometown was a short walk from Sepphoris, which was a major city and one in which Greek was spoken.
.
The impact of Alexander the Great’s conquests in the fourth century B.C. resulted in the Mediterranean’s being a ‘Greek sea’ in Jesus’ day. In the third century Jews in Egypt could no longer read the Scriptures in Hebrew, so they began to translated them into Greek. This famous translation became known as the Septuagint (LXX). Jesus, who was reared in ‘Galilee, of the Gentiles,’ lived only three or four miles from the thriving Greek city of Sepphoris. There may even have been times when he and his father worked in this rapidly grow- ing metropolitan city, which served as the capital city of Herod Antipas until A.D. 26, when he moved the capital to Tiberias” “Two of Jesus’ disciples were even known by their Greek names: Andrew and Philip. In addition, there are several incidents in Jesus’ ministry when he spoke to people who knew neither Aramaic nor Hebrew. Thus unless a translator was present (though none is ever mentioned), their conversations probably took place in the Greek language. Probably Jesus spoke Greek during the following occasions: the visit to Tyre, Sidon and the Decapolis (Mark 7:31ff), the conversation with the Syro-Phoenician woman (Mark 7:24-30; compare especially 7?26) and the trial before Pontius Pilate (Mark 15:2-15; compare also Jesus’ conversation with the ‘Greeks’ in John 12:20-36)” (Jesus the Messiah: A Survey of the Life of Christ, Robert H. Stein, InterVarsity Press,, 1996, p.87). . Greek was undoubtedly the language of the New Testament. New Bible Dictionary: “The language in which the New Testament documents have been preserved is the ‘common Greek’ (koine),which was the lingua franca of the Near Eastern and Mediterranean lands in Roman times” (p.713).There is no evidence at all to suppose that the New Testament was originally written in anything but ancient Greek! Concludes the New Bible Dictionary. It is a spurious, specious argument and a big lie to claim that the New Testament had to have been written in Hebrew, and had to contain only the Hebrew names for God. All the evidence of the manuscripts points otherwise. Those who claim the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew, utilizing the Hebrew names for God, have no evidence or proof whatsoever to back up their claims. Should we believe them at all when they have no evidence, but only a belief.. Should we take thus their speculations as “fact”? Of course not! Absurd, ridiculous, unscholarly and dishonest. . “God is not prejudiced against the Greek language, or Russian, Italian, German, Chinese, Spanish, French, or English. But, as Peter declared: “Of a truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him” (Acts 10:34-35). Amen to that! “ Why was the New Testament originally written in GREEK? The basic reason why this language was chosen instead of Aramaic or Hebrew was that the writers wished to reach a broad, Gentile (non-Israelite) audience, not just a Jewish audience. . What difference does it make, anyway, what language Jesus and His disciples spoke? The answer becomes clear when we realize that there are churches, sects and cults today which make a great issue over the subject of “holy names.” These churches will not use ANY name for God or Christ in ANY language except what they call the original “Hebrew” names for God and the Messiah. “Christ” is merely the English form of the Greek word Christos, which merely means “Anointed” one. The fact that God preserved the entirely of the New Testament in the Greek language and Jesus preached, spoke gives these these brain dead people of the cults a really big”fitt.” or “panic”. God Almighty have the power to preserve His name in whatever language He chooses? Of course He does! And it is patently obvious that He choose to preserve the New Testament Scriptures in Greek — not Hebrew! The fact that Jesus and the apostles undeniably all spoke Greek is another nail in the coffin of these “language-worshippers” and Hebrew addicts. And clearly as they are wrong here they are also wrong in so many areas, doctrines then. Wouldn’t it seem awfully perverse that if God He Himself divided all mankind into many language groups at the tower of Babel nut next intended all mankind to use only the Hebrew names of God and the Messiah. The fact is, there is no honest Biblical evidence that God must be called only by His Hebrew names and titles. There is no Biblical or linguistic evidence that prohibits the use of English names and titles for God. Furthermore, as some suggest some parts of the New Testament were written in Hebrew such as the gospel of Matthew , now isn’t it amazing that God did not preserve those manuscripts — instead He chose to preserve His New Testament Scriptures in the GREEK LANGUAGE, with the Greek forms of His name and titles! Not one single book of the New Testament has been preserved in Hebrew — only in Greek and thousands of supporting documents too. Since Almighty God has preserved the New Testament Scriptures almost solely in the Greek language, all of them were originally written in Greek, it is obvious that God Himself teaches that Greek forms of God’s names and titles are perfectly all right for us to use, and translations of those forms and names into other languages, including English. Jesus the Name above all names for example.

Christianity is a new Religion that is not an updated Judaism, or a revised Judaism.. Most Messianic Jews too now are also still going to hell.. and they are firstly not willing to give up all to follow Jesus . For some Jesus must have spoken Hebrew to some people, otherwise somehow his mission as the Messiah would have been deficient. Some were worried that if Jesus spoke Greek he did not care for the Jews basically.. No one even knows what the Jewish Culture was like at the time of Jesus since the Romans burned all the Jewish books and Library and none exist today thus.. People who are hung up on a Jewish scripture still need the Holy Spirit to explain it anyway and most people do not have him, Jews especially.. .Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify your perversions of the reality.. There is no existing evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been . Why are they falsely so argumentative and hung up on a Hebrew Jesus? when most of the Jews have rejected him anyway and are mostly going to hell..
.
Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify the perversions of the reality.. There is no existing evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been and anyone has yet had failed to prove it too.. The fact that Jesus may have spoken Greek may help us to think differently about him and his ministry. For many years it was common to envision Jesus as growing up in the countryside of Galilee, far removed from multi-cultural hodge-podge of the Roman Empire. But this idealized view of the rustic Jesus is far from the truth. Though he grew up in a small town, he was not at all cut off from the broader Roman world. In fact Jesus grew up with ample exposure to Greco-Roman language, culture, commerce, politics, religion, and philosophy. When he eventually entered Jerusalem to confront the Roman and Jewish authorities there – and to give his life in the process – Jesus was no naive country bumpkin making his first trip to the big city. Rather he was well aware of powers and perils he faced, and he faced these knowing, as he ultimately said to Pontius Pilate (in Greek, I believe), “My kingdom is not from this world” (John 18:36). Given the Holy Spirit, not just excellence of English translations of the Bible by translators who have mastered all of the relevant languages, it’s not necessary for the ordinary Christian to learn Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic in order to understand the teaching of Jesus .and his teachings.. In fact too many Hebrew , Aramaic and Greek speaking persons are still very ungodly persons
.
Undoubtedly, one of the most remarkable acts of Israel was to have taken a language that has been dead for 2,000 years, even during and after the time of Christ, Greek and next Aramaic and not Hebrew was the language spoken in the land of Israel, and to have transformed it into a living national language, in 1948. Many East European Jews spoke Yiddish. Many Sephardi Jews spoke Ladino. Many other Jews spoke only the language of their country of origin. Hebrew was also the first language of the Old Testament Bible but not of the New Testament. . Jesus, in Hebrew-his own language, means “YAHWEH IS SALVATION” or “YAHWEH SAVES” ? God, The Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ they did not come to earth primarily for the Jews but rather to save all of mankind . https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/the-purpose-of-jesus-christs-mission-on-earth/ .

Tim Warner  Was the New Testament Written in Hebrew?

I have been concerned about certain forces within the Hebrew Roots movement and where this is leading. While understanding the Hebrew foundation of Christianity is something all Christians should pursue, there is something sinister going on below the surface. There seems to be an attempt to draw Christians away from the simplicity of the Gospel back under the Old Covenant (Law) into Judaism. Eventually, I believe the result for those who are absorbed into this movement will be forsaking the only begotton Son of God for another “Yeshua” who was just a Jewish sage. The destination seems to be the same as the Jesus Seminar, it is just arrived at via another route. I realize that this is a tough statement. But, after interaction with several who have been involved in this movement for some time, I am convinced it is accurate.

One of the subtle attacks on the Christian Faith comes from the notion that the New Testament was not written in Greek, but in “Hebrew.” This may seem benign at first, but it is not. It is an attack on the reliability of the text of your Bible. If the Greek text is unreliable and has been corrupted by Greeks, as is charged by some, there is no longer a standard of truth. The Protestant cry of “Sola Scriptura” is meaningless unless we have a historically stable and reliable text. Once the New Testament itself is discredited, the rope tying your boat to the dock has been severed, and you are bound to be “carried about with every wind of doctrine.” ”We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.” [Heb. 2:1].

No ancient Hebrew manuscript of the New Testament has ever been found from the early centuries of Christianity. The oldest are Greek. The oldest papyrus fragment [a portion of the Gospel of John] dates back to the late second century. So the manuscript evidence alone weighs heavily against the concept of Hebrew “originals.” The proponents of the Hebrew New Testament claim that internal evidence suggests the original language of the text was “Hebrew.” Actually, the “Hebrew” of the Torah was not widely spoken at the time of Christ. It was the language of the Jewish scholars, but not widely spoken by common Jewish folk. It was like the “Latin” of the day. It had long since gone out of common use since the Babylonian captivity. In Israel of the first century, Aramaic [or “Chaldee”] was fairly common, which is similar to Hebrew. But, this was the language picked up during the Babylonian captivity, which found its way into Jewish life. [There are a few parts of the Old Testament written in Aramaic, parts of Jeremiah, Daniel, and Ezra]. So, lets not begin with a false impression that true “Hebrew” of the Torah is even a possible candidate for the original documents of the New Testament. It is not. No one except a few Jewish scholars would have been able to read it. When the New Testament refers to the “Hebrew tongue” it is not referring to pure “Hebrew” of the Torah, but to “the common language of the Jews” ie., the common tongue spoken by Jews, Aramaic or “Chaldee,” adopted from the language of the “Chaldeans” [Babylonians].

Proponents of the “Hebrew” New Testament concept claim that the Greek New Testament is unreliable, due to “Hellenization” of the text. “Hellenized” simply means influenced by Greek culture and thought. This theory leads to the conclusion that the Greek New Testament, from which we get our English New Testament, is unreliable, and we are subject to errors of “Hellenism” when we read it. The real message of Jesus was allegedly lost in the “Hellenized” and “embellished” documents we call the four Gospels. My friends, this is NOT of God! It is EXACTLY the tactic of every major cult. They all claim that true Christianity was lost, and they have been chosen to “recover” the true message of Jesus and the Apostles. It is the same message Islam teaches, that Christians have corrupted the Scriptures over the centuries.

The Hebrew New Testament proponents would have us trust them to fix the faulty Scriptures, by relying on their supposed knowledge of Jewish customs and figures of speech. In short, we need to sit at the feet of rabbis in order to understand what was written. But, by editing the text of the New Testament to conform to so-called Jewish thought only leads AWAY from the message preserved by the providence of God. God promised to preserve His Word for every generation [Psalm 12:6,7 Matt. 24:35]. God kept His word! The Traditional Greek text of the New Testament is reliable. Any changing [regardless of motive] of what has been preserved by God is a blatant violation of the commandment found in the last chapter of Revelation. Those who remove words that God has preserved in His Word, will be removed from the “Book of Life,” and those who add to His words, to them God will add the plagues.

Limiting the words of Jesus and the Apostles to a Jewish culture and to Jewish thought is to limit the Son of God to human ideologies! It is to make Jesus out to be just another “radical rabbi.” The message of the New Testament transcends the Jewish and Greek cultures! Sure the writers of the New Testament were Jewish. But they used language and explanations understood by common folk, in the common language of the Roman Empire, Greek. Sure, there are uniquely “Jewish” expressions and ideas found in the words of Jesus. After all, He was Jewish, speaking to those of the Jewish culture. But, Aramaic was not the only language spoken in Israel. The common language of commerce was Greek, as it was all over the eastern Roman Empire. Jews spoke Greek in their daily trade. Being bilingual was very common all over the Roman Empire. And this is particularly true of the Jews.

The New Testament writers adapted the Gospel message to the thinking of the ones they were addressing! This is seen clearly by comparing two passages from Acts where Paul addressed two different groups from two different cultures.

First, when Paul was arrested at the Temple, because of false charges from a mob of Jews hurling accusations, he was immediately brought before the Roman guard.

Acts 21:36-22:3
36 For the multitude of the people followed after, crying, Away with him.
37 And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?
38 Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?
39 But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.
40 And when he had given him licence, Paul stood on the stairs, and beckoned with the hand unto the people. And when there was made a great silence, he spake unto them in the Hebrew tongue, saying,
22:1 Men, brethren, and fathers, hear ye my defence which I make now unto you.
2 (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he saith,)
3 I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.
(KJV)

Here we have recorded that Paul addressed the Jews on the Temple Mount in Aramaic. Why? Because He was being accused of bringing a Gentile into the Temple. He wanted to make an impression that He was indeed a Jew, as he clearly stated in his opening statement. He proceeded to give a long discourse in the language of the Jews.

Now, compare this to Acts 17.

Acts 17:22-24,28-29
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
(KJV)

Here, Paul addressed the men of Athens in their native tongue, Greek. He also quoted two excerpts from a Greek philosopher in support of His preaching! Now, talk about “Hellenism!” It is easy to see that Paul adapted the message of the Gospel to the language and culture of his hearers.

Based on these two quotes, what can we conclude about the language in which Acts was written? Acts contains no statement that Paul addressed the men of Athens in Greek, yet we know they spoke Greek. In Acts 21, when Paul addressed the Jews on the Temple Mount, a point is made by Luke of the fact that he spoke Aramaic. The logical conclusion is that Luke recorded Acts in Greek, and noted where he had to translate from Aramaic to Greek himself.

That Acts was originally written in Greek is further supported by the fact that it was addressed to a Greek man. Luke commented that his “former treatise,” ie. the Gospel of Luke, was also written to this same Greek man, Theophilus.

Acts 1:1-2
1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
(KJV)

We can conclude from this that both Luke and Acts were originally written in Greek.

Mark and John were both written to Greek speaking Gentiles. Mark makes it a point to explain some of the Jewish customs to His Greek speaking audience. This would have been gratuitous had they been Jewish. Note:

Mark 7:2-4
2 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
4 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
(KJV)

Mark was a companion of Paul and Barnabas on their missionary journey to the Gentiles. His Gospel was most likely recorded for the benefit and use of Paul and the Gentile churches founded by Paul. So, his explanation of the Jewish customs was considered necessary so that the Gentiles would understand why the Pharisees were so upset with Jesus. Mark was definitely not written to those who were well acquainted with Jewish customs.

The Gospel of John shows thoroughly Roman thinking by the Apostle himself. The Gospel of John was written much later than the others, after the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 During this time John had taken over the leadership of the churches of Asia Minor that Paul had founded, after Paul’s martyrdom at Rome. This is a fact of Church history, and it is also apparent in Revelation, where John was instructed by Jesus to send the seven letters to the local Gentile Greek-speaking churches of Asia Minor.

One piece of evidence from John indicates that by the time he wrote his Gospel, he had adopted Roman methods of time-keeping. That is, midnight to midnight, rather than sunset to sunset, as was the practice of the Jews. And he wrote his gospel in such a way that Gentiles would understand the hours correctly. Compare the following, where the synoptic Gospels use Jewish reckoning, but John used Roman reckoning.

Matt 27:45
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
(KJV)

Here, the crucifixion of Jesus is referred to using Jewish reckoning. The Jews reckoned the days from sunset to sunset [around 6:00PM]. And the daytime hours were counted beginning at sunrise. So, the sixth hour would be around noon, and the ninth hour was 3:00PM. Now, compare John’s Gospel.

John 19:14
14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
(KJV)

Here, we find Jesus before Pilate at the “sixth hour” prior to the crucifixion. Yet, Matthew has Jesus on the cross at the “sixth hour.” The apparent discrepancy is because John used Roman time. Hours were counted from midnight. So, the “sixth hour” was 6:00AM. Three hours later he was crucified at 9:00AM. And at noon the sun turned dark, until 3:00PM.

The question then arises; Why would John, a Jewish Apostle, use Gentile methods of reckoning time? Because he wrote to Gentiles after the destruction of Jerusalem. Since the Jews had been dispersed from Jerusalem, Jewish time-keeping was no longer being practiced on a large scale, even in Israel. And John’s Gentile audience might not understand the hours properly had he used Jewish reckoning. This illustrates a couple of important points. The intended audience of most of the New Testament books were Greek-speaking Gentiles, who not only could not possibly understand Aramaic, but did NOT fully understand the Jewish customs. The fact that the New Testament writers took this into consideration, making allowances through explanatory notes or by using time-keeping familiar to the Greeks, shows that the New Testament was not only written in the language of the Roman Empire, Greek, but was already adapted to Gentile thinking by the original writers. It needs no further tampering by the Hebrew Roots movement!

The Jews spoke Greek, not exclusively Aramaic. Greek was necessary for trade, and because the Roman Empire was governing Israel at the time. In order to interact with the authorities, primarily Greek and even Latin were necessary. The multilingual nature of the Jewish culture at the time of Christ is clearly seen in the inscription hung on the top of the cross.

Luke 23:38
38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
(KJV)

Jews of the Diaspora [Jews who were descendants of those who did not return to the land of Israel after the Babylonian captivity] had settled in little Hebrew communities all over the Roman Empire. Paul encountered them in his travels to many Gentile cities. These Jews spoke Greek in order to participate in commerce, and also spoke the languages unique to the local area. This is illustrated in Acts 2, where Jews of the Diaspora had traveled to Jerusalem for Passover and Pentecost.

Acts 2:5-11
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
(KJV)

Notice the Jews of the Diaspora were speaking among themselves, obviously in a common language. But what language? Notice they were from many different places, and their native languages were those of the areas in which they lived. Also, notice they EXPECTED the Apostles, who were “Galileans” [from Galilee – north of Judea], to be speaking in the language common to Galilee. Yet, to their surprise, the 120 brethren were speaking “the wonderful works of God” in the native languages of all these men. Now, pay particular attention to the fact that the language of Judea is listed among these languages in contrast to the language of the Galileans! The language of the Judeans was “Aramaic” [or what the New Testament calls “Hebrew.”] So, since this crowd was amazed that the Galilean believers were speaking the Hebrew [Aramaic] of Judea [as well as the other languages of Jews of the Diaspora], we must conclude that Aramaic was NOT the normally spoken language of Galilee! Jesus and the Disciples were from Galilee, with the exception of Judas Iscariot, who was from Judea. This is strong evidence that Jesus and the disciples normally spoke Greek, common to Galilee, rather than Aramaic or Hebrew, which was primarily spoken in Judea.

That Jesus was bilingual, and spoke both Greek and Aramaic, is indicated by Mark. He made special note of the fact that Jesus uttered some words in Aramaic. These special notations by Mark would indicate that Aramaic was not Jesus’ normally spoken language. In other words, Mark records these Aramaic comments of Jesus as unusual.

Mark 5:41
41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
(KJV)

Mark 15:34-35
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
(KJV)

Some might argue that Jesus always spoke in Aramaic, and the Gospel writers simply translated His words themselves into Greek. But, notice in the above passage, those standing around the cross did not understand these Aramaic words! They thought Jesus was calling Elijah! This is because the majority of Jews spoke Greek.

The late Alfred Edersheim is considered one of the greatest Messianic Jewish scholars of the 19th century. In his book, “The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah,” he wrote the following about the languages spoken in Israel during Jesus’ ministry.

Pg. 17. “When we turn from the Jewish ‘dispersion’ in the East to that in the West, we seem to breathe quite a different atmosphere. … These Jews of the West are known by the term “Hellenists” from ellhniqein, to conform to the language and manners of the Greeks.” Pg. 22 “Why, this sway extended even into Palistine itself, and was felt in the innermost circle of the most exclusive Rabbinism. We are not here referring to the fact that the very language spoken in Palestine came to be very largely charged with Greek, and even Latin, words Hebraised, since this is easily accounted for by the new circumstances, and the necessities of intercourse with the dominant or resident foreigners.”

There are also cases in the New Testament where Aramaic names are used, but are identified as “Hebrew” [Aramaic]. There would be no reason to make such distinctions had the original documents been written in Aramaic to begin with. If the Greek manuscripts had been translated from Aramaic originals, the translators would NOT have left these words in Aramaic, but would have used Greek equivalents as they do with all other words or names. Here are some examples;

John 5:2
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
(KJV)

John 19:13
13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
(KJV)

Acts 26:14
14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
(KJV)

Rev 16:16
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
(KJV)

In each of these cases, had the written Word been originally recorded in “Hebrew” [Aramaic], there would have been no reason to add the comment about the Aramaic pronunciation..

Actually, the idea that the entire New Testament was originally written in Hebrew is nearly absurd, because all, except Matthew, Hebrews, and James, were written primarily to Gentiles. And Gentiles did NOT speak Aramaic.

The fact that several uniquely Jewish expressions and figures of speech are used does NOT show that the original documents were written in Aramaic. This phenomenon can easily be explained by the fact that the writers of the New Testament were bilingual, even though they were mostly Jewish men. They conveyed some Jewish thinking in Greek words. Sure, their thinking was mostly influenced by Jewish culture and tradition. That simply means the authors were Jewish themselves. It does NOT say anything about the language in which they wrote, or even the language they usually spoke. In the same way the Apostles could speak the “wonderful works of God” to men from “every nation under heaven,” using all of the languages listed, so too did they write New Testament books to Gentiles conveying the necessary concepts in Greek.

Another fact that argues against a Hebrew New Testament is the Septuagint [commonly represented by the numerals LXX]. This is a translation of the Old Testament into Greek made by Jews some 200 years before Jesus. It was commonly used and quoted by the New Testament writers. And it was adopted by the early Church as their Old Testament. In fact, this is why many of the quotes of Old Testament passages found in the New Testament do not read exactly word for word from the Hebrew Old Testament. Yet, many are word for word from the Greek Septuagint [LXX]. The different spellings of names in the New Testament like “Esaias” instead of “Isaiah,” “Jesus” instead of “Joshua,” etc., are from the LXX. It was the Jews, who translated the LXX before Christ, that transliterated these names. By the time of Christ this was how these names were pronounced by Greek speaking Jews. Paul and the other New Testament writers had no problem using these Greek transliterated names. Not once is Jesus referred to as “Yeshua” in the New Testament. We saw earlier that in some cases writers would give Aramaic names of places, and make a comment about the Hebrew [Aramaic] pronunciation. Yet not once is this done with the name of Jesus, God, the names of the OT saints, etc. The common Greek pronunciation is always used. When Paul preached the Gospel, he preached “Iesous Christos” not “Yeshua Messiah.”

The idea that the OT Hebrew language was fixed and names remained the same is a myth. The Hebrew language underwent an evolution. The language of Moses and the Torah gave way to changes over time. This can best be illustrated by a comparison of the name of Joshua [which incidentally is exactly the same name as “Jesus”] in the Old Testament from the time of Moses, and the mention of the same name after the Babylonian captivity.

Exod 33:11
11 And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.
(KJV)

Here the name of Joshua in the Hebrew Text is “Yehowshua” [Strong’s #3091]. This is the “Torah” [Old Hebrew] pronunciation. But, at the time of the closing of the OT cannon, after the Babylonian captivity, the name “Joshua” [which is also the name of our Savior] had changed rather dramatically.

Neh 8:17
17 And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths: for since the days of Jeshua the son of Nun unto that day had not the children of Israel done so. And there was very great gladness.
(KJV)

Here the Hebrew text has “Yeshua” [Strong’s #3442]. Strangely enough, most Hebrew Roots folks use this post-Babylonian pronunciation of the name of our Lord rather than the Torah pronunciation.

Finally, I would like to propose the main reason for the New Testament being originally written in Greek rather than Hebrew or Aramaic. The Hebrew language is not a very precise language. It does not have all the intricacies of Greek. The Greek language is very precise, making all kinds of distinctions with subtle differences in verb tenses, etc. To translate the Bible accurately from Hebrew to any other languages is extremely difficult. The exact meaning of the text is very often unclear. This is compounded by the fact that the old Hebrew did not even use vowels. In later Hebrew, little marks above and below the consonants gave the vowel sounds. But, the early Old Testament manuscripts did not contain these, and many times the scribes had to guess which word was meant, since without vowels, sometimes completely different words were spelled the same in the text. This problem of the Hebrew text is overcome to some degree by modern translators using the Greek Septuagint translation to find out which Hebrew word was intended.

The Greek language was in place precisely at the right time for the Gospel to be proclaimed to all nations, because translation from Greek is far easier and much more precise. Perhaps that is one reason Paul wrote, “when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son…” The circumstances were such that the Gospel could travel along the Roman trade routes, and could be carried in a common tongue all over the known world, using the common language of trade, Greek.

In conclusion, all of the manuscript evidence supports a Greek New Testament. The internal evidence shows a Greek original as well. The uniquely Jewish expressions and figures of speech can easily be explained by bilingual authors who were Jewish, but conveyed their words in the Greek language. The fact that the New Testament makes a point of identifying unique Aramaic names as “Hebrew,” and tells us when someone spoke Aramaic, illustrates that the original documents were NOT Aramaic. The fact that the intended audience for the vast majority of the New Testament was Greek-speaking Gentiles, also argues against this theory. The only possible candidates for a Hebrew (Aramaic) original would be Matthew, Hebrews, and James, all of which had a Jewish intended audience. Of these, a few claims of Hebrew originals circulated in the early Church for Matthew and Hebrews. But, none of these claims provide any credible evidence to support them. Nor is there any examples of manuscripts or fragments of such hypothetical Hebrew originals. The practice of New Testament writers quoting from the Greek LXX is further evidence that the New Testament was given by God in the Greek tongue, the one language that was spoken nearly all over the known world at the time the Gospel was launched from Judea.

MANY JEWS, EVEN MESSIANIC JEWS LIE ABOUT CHRISTIANITY

http://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2014/11/18/many-jews-even-messianic-jews-lie-about-christianity/

Watch out for the liars

Most people do take isolated verse and twist them;

The reality about Messianic Jews

spring 2015 (6)

1st John 2:22-23, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”

.

The problem with Messianic Jews is..(1 Tim 1:7 KJV) Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

.

The Jewish Messiah’s given name at Birth also was Jesus Christ, a Greek name and not a Hebrew name. But many Messianic Jews still hate Christans, the Church, and even Jesus so they refuse to call him by his name Jesus  but use an artificial name of Yeshua

.One great problem facing Messianic Judaism is the desire for control, they are wrongfully control freaks..

Many in the Messianic Jewish community tend to spend falsely an inordinate amount of time arguing with the Christian community over doctrines, traditions, and ideas but they are not so quick to create such heated disputes with the unbelieving Jews .

In Messianic Jewish literature and many have noticed one consistent trend: authors intensely try to justify Messianic Judaism while heaping bitterly numerous criticisms on Christianity .

Now it comes as a surprise, again, that Messianic Jews criticize Christianity even more harshly than Judaism, which rejects Jesus as the Messiah and hates Him. It appears that Messianic Jews are as antagonistic to Christianity as the traditional Jews are. It brings to mind the words of Paul ,” You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarrelling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

Messianic Judaism has become so preoccupied with justifying its existence that it is now obsessed with taking over from both religions that of the Jews and the Christians, but especially Christianity. This is a dangerous road that removes the focus of Messianic Jews from their relationships with God and places their focus on worldly endeavors which is the reason they are going to hell still, Like Apostle Judas. .

Worshiping Israel, Jerusalem, It’s and , it’s people, it’s leaders, Jews,  the Old Testament is still an unacceptable sin to God.  The Sin Of Worshiping The Land Of Israel Instead of God is Idolatry The idolizing and worshiping of Jerusalem, Israel and the Jews is evil in the sight of God. Especially since Israel today is a shameful nation that has abandoned the sole God of the Bible, Jesus Christ. It is demons that are inspiring people to idolize Israel and the Jews. You are now also God, Bible IGNORANT if you do still think that God blesses any Christians who support a wicked, Christ-rejecting people, Nation of Israel. The land of Israel itself and the nation still has nothing to do with our salvation from death and sin.! Jesus alone now died, was buried and rose up three days later for our justification. Defending Israel is NOT even a man’s job. Defending Israel is NOT a function of the New Testament Church. In fact, this may come as a shock to you, but the Bible says that Jerusalem and the Jews will be attacked and defeated, continually as we often hear about it too, until the Lord returns to earth, thus ending “the times of the Gentiles.” Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Israel today is not the fulfillment of any New Testament Biblical prophecy. as well. Only a total jackass, fool would believe otherwise.. https://asposed.wordpress.com/2015/09/19/the-sin-of-worshipping-the-land-of-israel-jews/

The are many many major wrong approaches by the Messianic Jewish movement.

One of the dangers in the national and international scene is a feeling they are always right, superiors. When a group has the attitude of superiority, they quickly do alienate many others. We all have much to learn from one another. God can unify and blend us without any group or individual controlling and manipulating others.

Messianic Jews are liars, trouble makers, Christian haters, unchristian,   weird or “off the mark” as Messianic Judaism is a “doctrine of demons and Torah observance itself is a “doctrine of demons. And they misquote the Bible to justify their lies. Yahweh – God gave us a new Covenant through Jesus, and abandoned the Torah! The Law and also the Jewish temple was abolished for all. Christians no longer walk in Torah, they are not keeping the Biblical feasts, or the seventh day Sabbath thus. No matter who instituted Sunday worship, After Christs death both Christian Jews and Christian Gentiles alike, regularly attended church for worship on Sunday.

(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! 38 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. 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down

.

The apostle Peter, preaching after Pentecost, and citing Moses, similarly warned those who rejected Jesus, “Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from their people.” (Acts 3:23). Covenantalists believe there has only ever been one people of God – whether under the old or new covenant – and one way to God – by Jesus, grace alone and through faith alone.

.

Most of the Jews even today and the Judaizers have refused God plan through the ages , that of Jesus being the Messiah and they continue on with their own earthly, fleshly replacement, earthly goals, plans.

.

There actually is no Biblical promised prophecy, a promised second return of the Jews to Israel in the Old Testament or next in the whole Bible now too. after Israel’s, Jews second dispersion from Israel by the Romans in 70 ad.. . Not even one New testament Bible verse even for even the Jewish return in 1948..

.
Hatred the Jewish distortion of reality if you do not go along with them God whose Name is Yahweh in Hebrew who became flesh and made Himself known TODAY by His Greek Name which is Jesus AND is solely used and applicable, the Greek Name even meaning Christos, the anointed one who anoints one with the Holy Spirit and not any of the Hebrew names.. No Jews personal praise of God is now even accepted by God especially in their even their unredeemed and sinful state, sins now. Their praise do not reach God as their uncovered sins suffocate them. Because of their OWN CLEAR rejection of Jesus Christ even today as their savior, and as their Lord Messiah all of the Jews had since the time of Jesus Christ stopped being God’s chosen people, their Jerusalem temple was destroyed permanently, and next no new God Ordained temple will be even be rebuilt with God’s approval anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God. ” Those who question the legitimacy of Israel’s actions are immediately labelled as Bullies, racists. or 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 even Messianic ones tend to be self serving, control freaks, war mongers who can easily hate, ostracize, reject others cause they are not capable of love, as love is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, and they are undeniably Holy Spirit , Word, Jesus ignorant.. This is a very dangerous person that we should be aware of, and even not associate with, the one who is also mainly the devil’s follower, one that is the self centered, sarcastic, withdrawn silhouette , control freak.
Face it one now being any kind of a Control freak is a big, bad unacceptable disease.. and it must be treated as such.. Control freaks do often have a terrible personal, social life too and they do often make all life terrible for those they live with, marry, work with, come in contact with. Too often in life now to my own surprise I have been given orders, mandatory commandments by control freaks as to what I should do, like not make any negative internet posts too, by some of the bad relatives of mine, bad persons , even bad cops, bad politicians and it often now made me wonder why did they wrongfully still do think that God has made them a slave master over me.. boy they were in for a rude awakening next when I refused to do what they had said.
I have often too got letters from some persons telling me what I can and cannot write on their sites, they are rather wanting to write all of my posts themselves it seems. Being in control gives them the temporary illusion and sense of calmness, a false feeling of superiority. and what fools they are when in reality they are so far from it now too. Control freaks or Bullies, abusers, wrongfully do cause others stress so they can maintain a false sense of order. These people themselves firstly are   still riddled mostly with anxiety, fear, insecurity, and anger. They’re very critical of themselves their lover and their friends, but underneath all that still too that supposedly perfect outfit and great body is a mountain of real unhappiness, unresolved guilt, disturbed person.
Certainly, it’s natural to want to be in control of your life. But when you have to be in control of the people around you as well, well you have gone crazy, become a fool, a demonic controlled person who can’t rest until you get your way and you are headed down a very bumpy ride, it is easier to try to control yourself, and impossible to control all the others. https://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2015/03/04/so-what-reasons-do-you-have-to-support-the-jews-and-the-state-of-israel/

JEWS DO preach lies, distortions, crap cause they do serve the devil.. these hypocrites do want other people to read their material, writings when they tend to admit that they do not read the others who do not agree with them.. cause they are a brain dead Jewish Ostrich in denial going to Hell with most Jews too.. Jewish Liars also do not enter the kingdom of

Jews even Messianic ones are misreading the BIBLE TO PUSH their DEMONIC JUDAISM,

.

” Those who question the legitimacy of Israel’s actions are immediately labelled as Bullies, racists. or anti-Semitic by some quarters, effectively undermining the turn of phrase by using it in this context.

.

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ (Col. 2:8, NIV).

.

Many Messianic Jews are implying since the Savior was Jewish they themselves are special people in God’s sight. In contrast consider what John the Baptist said to Jewish people in his day who thought they were special because of their nationality:

.

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham” (Mt. 3:7-9).

And what does Jesus’ Jewish identity have to do with anything? This is never magnified in the New Testament. Jesus is the Savior of all who will repent and submissively trust in him. Rev. 7 states there will be people in God’s kingdom from every tribe, people, language and nation all redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. Of what nationality Messiah was as He walked the earth is totally irrelevant.

http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/yeshua.htm#yeshua or jesus

.

Jews and Messianic Jews in desperation are falsely trying to maintain their own Hebrew religious identity and to falsely reject a Christian version of it.. The New Testament itself now had castigated the Jewish people and Israel and has minimized their presence in the promised land, and has specifically said that they are no longer God’s Chosen People. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/desolate/
.
It is totally false that God wants any of the Jews to again practice full Mosaic Old Testament Temple worship, complete with animal sacrifices.

.

a. “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you. And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law. You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. ” (Galatians 5:1–4)

.

b. “But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion sought for a second. … When He said, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear.” (Hebrews 8:6-7,13)

.

c. “When He said, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear.” (Hebrews 8:13)

.

d. You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. ” (Galatians 5:4)

.

2. The whole idea of restoring temple worship, with a restored Aaronic priesthood, complete with ashes of the Red Heifer is to deny Christ as the true Passover lamb. It is absurd to try to restore the Old Testament law along with Temple sacrifices because it is a denial of the sacrifice of Christ’s blood once for all to end all animal sacrifices.

.

The signs of Matthew 24 prophecies the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD not the second coming and certainly not some “Rapture” theology that was invented in 1830 AD by John Darby. When Christians saw the signs, they fled the city and were saved.

.

It is false to expect God to give the Jews a second chance at accepting Jesus as their earthly king. In fact, Jesus was never intended to be their earthly king. Jesus was prophesied to be Israel’s spiritual king. Jesus plainly told Pilate that he was not an earthly king who would compete with him, but a spiritual king in heaven:

.

a. “Therefore Pilate entered again into the Praetorium, and summoned Jesus and said to Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?” … Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice

Zion (Hebrew: ציון‎), also transliterated Sion, Tzion or Tsion, is a place name often used as a synonym for Jerusalem. The word is first found in Samuel II, 5:7 dating to c.630–540 BCE

.
Note this

Zion is the Hebrew name for the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and was the seat of the first and second Holy Temple. It is the most holy place in the world for Jews, seen as the connection between God and humanity.

Observant Jews still falsely recite the Amidah three times a day facing Zion in Jerusalem, praying for the rebuilding of the Holy Temple, the restoration of the Temple service, the redemption of the world, and for the coming of the false anitchrist Messiah.

Zion is commonly referred to a specific mountain near Jerusalem (Mount Zion), on which stood a Jebusite fortress of the same name that was conquered by David and was named the City of David.


The term Tzion came to designate the area of Jerusalem where the fortress stood, and later became a metonym for Solomon‘s Temple in Jerusalem, the city of Jerusalem

The form Tzion (Hebrew: ציון‎; Tiberian vocalization: Ṣiyyôn) appears 108 times in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible),
The Daughter of Tzion

[The daughter of Zion in the old testament is clearly bad religious advisors.. as mentioned in the Song of Solomon.
.

In the New Testament the Daughter of Zion is the bride of Christ, also known as the Church, according to the writer of the book of Hebrews. Hebrews12:2 1 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
.

Matthew 21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

John 12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.


Romans 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Romans 11 :26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Hebrews 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev 14: 1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

All Jews are going to hell.. 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.

.

Do you have one, one New Testament verse that confirms Israel’s present return and possession of the Promised land. I am not aware of one, If you do which one is it? There is no New Testament substantiation by God, Jesus, Apostles for Israel’s right to return to the promised land in 1948 after God himself made Israel, Jerusalem desolate and dispersed them world wide in 70 ad. And any one who looks at the subject of Israel prophecy, the real genuine Bible student knows that too the Jews too can only use the Old Testament, and there is almost no New Testament substantiation for Israel’s existence. Now read the whole Bible, the New testament included, for yourself, do not even believe what others do say now the Bible says, for many have false, hidden agendas and do twist the truths now, Jews and false Christians included.

.

VALID PERSONS GOING TO HEAVEN CHRISTIANS DO BASE ALL OF THEIR VALID BIBLICAL DOCTRINES SOLELY ON THE NEW TESTAMENT SUBSTANTIATION BY JESUS OR THE APOSTLES, NOT JUST ON THE OLD TESTAMENT REFERENCES .

.

It should be of note, interest to all Bible students, that the Christian Church, the bride of Christ, the final Jew/fish seed, was not mentioned directly in the old testament but only in the new testament. All persons thus, Arab, Jewish, gentile can only go to heaven to be with God, can be saved from their sins thus too, by Jesus Christ alone.

.

It is unbelievable, undeniable that the professing Christian people who do not know the Bible can be so easily deceived, led astray too by many others, pastors and Jewish persons, Zionists included.. And had most people most Christians read the Bible for themselves they would have known the whole truth and would not have been so easily misled by others.

The entitlement of any one ethnic or religious group to territory in the Middle East called the “Holy Land” cannot be supported by the new testament or Old testament Scriptures. In fact, the land promises specific to Israel in the Old Testament were fulfilled under Joshua. The New Testament speaks clearly and prophetically about the destruction of the second temple in A.D. 70. No New Testament writer foresees a regathering of ethnic Israel in the land, as did the prophets of the Old Testament after the destruction of the first temple in 586 B.C. Moreover, the land promises of the Old Covenant are consistently and deliberately expanded in the New Testament to show the universal dominion of Jesus, who reigns from heaven upon the throne of David, inviting all the nations through the Gospel of Grace to partake of his universal and everlasting dominion. And why were the Jews dispelled from Israel the second Time? Because also due their false hope of having a Jewish state separate of Jesus Christ.

.

The Jews alone have by their return to Israel have usurped the authority of the Lord God of Hosts Himself, who alone has the right to give and take away the land of Israel as so far there is no New testament word confirming any of it’s return.. …the Land belongs now to Jesus Christ alone and his bride the Church… it is all his, he had undeniably bought it with his life and redeemed it alone!

.

God whose Name is Yahweh in Hebrew who became flesh and made Himself known TODAY by His Greek Name which is Jesus AND is solely used and applicable, the Greek Name even meaning Christos, the anointed one who anoints one with the Holy Spirit and not any of the Hebrew names.. No Jews personal praise of God is now even accepted by God especially in their even their unredeemed and sinful state, sins now. Their praise do not reach God as their uncovered sins suffocate them.

.

Because of their OWN CLEAR rejection of Jesus Christ even today as their savior, and as their Lord Messiah all of the Jews had since the time of Jesus Christ stopped being God’s chosen people, their Jerusalem temple was destroyed permanently, and next no new God Ordained temple will be even be rebuilt with God’s approval anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God.

Jews are no longer God’s chosen people but only the Christians are Gal 3:26-29 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

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. http://www.cc-vw.org/articles/zcs2.pdf

.

Reality is that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. Chosen now it is only used of those who follow Jesus.. reality!http://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/do-we-all-realy-now-need-to-support-the-jews-now-why/

Jesus is the Savior of all who will repent and submissively trust in him. Rev. 7 states there will be people in God’s kingdom from every tribe, people, language and nation all redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. Of what nationality Messiah was as He walked the earth is totally irrelevant. http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/yeshua.htm#yeshua or jesus

.

Jews and Messianic Jews in desperation are falsely trying to maintain their own Hebrew religious identity and to falsely reject a Christian version of it.. The New Testament itself now had castigated the Jewish people and Israel and has minimized their presence in the promised land, and has specifically said that they are no longer God’s Chosen People. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/desolate/
.

God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, but that does not mean that he required any people to rest on it. Also there is no evidence in the Bible that God commanded the Sabbath before the days of Moses and the rules for observations’ of the Sabbath were applicable only to the Jews and no one else. The New testament has no demand for Sabbath observations. So if God does not require the Sabbath, then it would be wrong for anyone to put this unnecessary burden on anyone. When the effect on our lives is so great, we all do even now need to make sure that we have a clear direct command from God, in the New testament not merely a questionable inference. Genesis itself does not command the Sabbath, never mentions the word, and never pictures anyone as keeping it. Col. 2:16-17. He says, “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.” Here, Paul groups the weekly Sabbath with the annual festivals, the monthly rituals, and eating and drinking restrictions of the now obsoleted Judaism. God accepts us solely on the basis of Christ, not on whether we keep a certain day of the week. The Sabbath keeping (or any other Judaic distinctive practice) will deceive a person and subtly reduce the importance of Jesus Christ. The Bible says that the only reason that we please God is because of Jesus Christ: God accepts us because of Jesus Christ, not because of anything that we do. It is by grace, not works. We are to trust in Christ alone for our salvation and not in any of our good acts, works-
.
All Jewish believers are now the same as Gentile believers in terms of what God requires of them. Both have to come under the New Covenant, The New testament. This is the covenant they both how have to operate under. Jesus said that all partake of the Lord’s Supper receive the sign of the “New Covenant in my blood which is poured out for you” (Luke 22:20) and that Paul was to the Corinthians a minister of the New Covenant to them, not of the letter that kills, but of the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:6). Both Jewish and Gentile believers in Messiah participate in the SAME NEW COVENANT, and are therefore bound by the SAME principles of conduct, the moral teachings of God’s Law, but not the ceremonial laws. Let’s make it crystal clear that “by observing the Law no one will be justified” and “if righteousness could be gained through the Law, Messiah died for nothing!” (Galatians 2:16 & 21). Just as Abraham was justified by faith, so also through faith in Jesus we can be justified. “But now a righteousness from God, apart from Law, has been made known, to which the Law and the prophets testify” (Romans 3:21). Observing the Law will save absolutely no one. But what about after salvation? We know we are saved apart from the Law, but don’t we follow the Law now out of obedience and love?
.

The New testament is clearly seen as Jesus instituting a new ethic at odds with that of the Old Testament Hebrew Bible. The New Testament, portrays Judaism as it’s best as a preparation for the full and final truth of the Christian Gospel. The New testament clearly however, is mot Judaism and it declares Judaism dead, obsolete, as well as their related laws The Jews, by killing their own messiah, had also now become the permanent enemies of God, and were to be punished accordingly throughout the generations by their own choice too. As the Jewish crowd cries to Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect, in the Gospel according to Matthew, “His blood be on us, and on our children.” In this Christian understanding, what was entailed for the Jews was not only the loss of God’s favour—and thus next we have rightfully the elevation of a new chosen people, represented by the Church—and also the full destruction of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem in 70 ad and the Jews full exile from their past promised land and they are to be “as wanderers they ought to remain upon the earth, until their countenance be filled with shame and repentance.” The conflict between the Jews and God also will not be settled until God , Jesus Christ comes back to earth as promised in Scripture.” As Paul insists in the New Testament, the Jews have not been utterly rejected by God but remain “beloved because of the patriarchs [Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob]. For the gift and the call of God are irrevocable.” “A hardening has come upon Israel,” the apostle Paul writes,“until the full number of the Gentiles comes in [to the truth of Christianity], and next thus all of the Spiritual Israel of both Jews and gentiles are saved. Contrary to the Jewish expectation the scope of Christ’s vicarious human life extends to all who have ever lived. Likewise, the Bible declares that Jesus died for everyone—and that his death applies to everyone now. https://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2015/01/24/keep-your-eyes-on-jesus-not-the-jewish-antichrist-yeshua/

Seventh day Adventists are not real Christians.. JEWS, MESSIANIC JEWS INCLUDED, JUDAIZERS, MORMONS, SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS, JEHOVAH WITNESSES, MUSLIMS, CHURCH OF GOD, ETC, ARE FALSELY STILL REWRITING THE BIBLE, WRITING A VERSION OF JESUS CHRIST THAT CONFLICTS WITH THE NEW TESTAMENT. THEY ARE PRODUCING A RELIGION BASED ON ONE GOOD’S WORKS, AND NOT A PERSONAL SALVATION BY FAITH BY THE GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST. ACCEPT NO FALSE SUBSTITUTES

.

Acts 4 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Abraham was not a Jew, neither was Noah, Jared, Methuselah, Enos, Enoch, Adam, Eve, Seth, Arphaxad, etc etc etc. No temple, no temple laws, no Hebrews, no Hebrew laws. In written record, most of the laws came into being at the time of Moses. Who now are Abrahams’s seed? Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

.

And as for the Jews? So, at what point do they become “Hebrew” or Jewish… you mean when did they start to follow the Judaism religion.. under Moses.. Jews, Judaism is a religion today and not a blood line since after 70 AD when the Romans destroyed the temple… records in Jerusalem.. no one can prove anymore he is a Jew by his blood line.. only by choice.. Judaism itself is dead to God after they had killed their Messiah Jesus Christ..

.

Thus says the Lord God of Israel: You shed blood, yet you would keep possession on the land? You rely on your sword, you do abominable things… yet you would keep possession of the land?… I will make the land a desolate waste, and her proud strength will come to an end. (Ezekiel 33:25-29) On the basis of such sober warnings is it not more likely that Israel will experience an imminent exile rather than restoration? The tension between Christians who call for the implementation of international law and Zionists is no where more clearly polarized than on the issue of the status of Jerusalem. http://www.cc-vw.org/articles/coloradotheology.htm

The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard Matt 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

.

This parable 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.http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/07/29/the-2-promised-returns/

.

Many people falsely quote non inapplicable old Testament verses and try to make them applicable today.. in particular to Israel. but Israel is no longer a Chosen people.. Our main attention is not on pray all Jews Go back to Israel, or rebuilding the city of Jerusalem or it’s obsolete temple but rather still praying all Jews become seabed.. and our main attention should be now on helping all Christians firstly, even those in Palestine, Lebanon, Pakistan, India, Syria Egypt etc.,

.

Luke 23:34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” And they divided His garments and cast lots. SO IF JESUS PRAYED AND ASK FORGIVENESS AND GOD FORGAVE THE BETRAYERS AND MURDERERS OF JESUS WHY DID GOD DESTROY JERUSALEM AND IT’S TEMPLE?

.

GOD NOT ONLY KICKED THE JEWS OUT OF ISRAEL IN 70 AD.. BUT BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST HE CHANGED THE WORLD’S CALENDAR, PROCLAIMING HIS NEW ERA AND TODAY IS 2013 AD, AFTER THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

.

The God of Abraham is Jesus Christ not the antichrist Jeshua Oh listen all you Jews today… “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Salvation may be of the Jews, but 95% of Jews today DON’T HAVE IT! This is the tragic truth

.

.THE MESSIANIC JEWISH MESSIAH DIFFERS FROM THE CHRISTIAN JESUS CHRIST Messianic Jews claim that the Jewish messiah is Jeshua not Jesus Christ..

.

Messianic parrots tend to repeat what theory false teachers taught them as they are clearly still mostly new testament ignorant..

.

They falsely do believe that when the Messiah is reigning as King of Israel, all of the Jews will be ingathered from their exile and will return to Israel, their homeland (Deut. 30:3; Isaiah 11:11-12; Jeremiah 30:3, 32:37; Ezekiel 11:17, 36:24). This has clearly not yet fully happened and never will .

.

They falsely do believe that in the Rebuilding of the Holy Temple The Temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt (Isaiah 2:2-3, 56:6-7, 60:7, 66:20; Ezekiel 37:26–27; Malachi 3:4; Zech. 14:20-21).. The Temple was still standing in Jesus’ day. It was destroyed 38 years after Jesus’ crucifixion and it has not yet been rebuilt. This has clearly not yet fully happened and never will

.

They falsely do believe in the Embracing of Torah Observance by All Jews The Messiah will reign as King at a time when all the Jewish people will observe God’s commandments (Ezekiel 37:24; Deut. 30:8,10; Jeremiah 31:32; Ezekiel 11:19-20, 36:26-27). This has clearly not yet fully happened and never will . Jesus never ruled as a a Jewish King, nor have all Jews embraced the commandments of God’s Torah. This has clearly not yet fully happened and never will

.

There are many rather still fools, even ignorant persons who think that they can merely obtain God’s favor by keeping any of the laws of the Old Testament.. these deceived persons all fail to realize that the Old Testament were written to the Jews only, not to any gentiles.. Now today all of these over 465 old testament inapplicable laws are redundant, obsolete even to all of the Jews.. Further more keeping any of these Mosaic laws does not insure any personal entrance into heaven..

Messianic Jews are really still lost persons going to hell. Messianic Jews have a completely different interpretation of the Kingdom of God, of Jesus Christ still.. they falsely see Jesus coming back to establish the kingdom of the Jews and not the kingdom of Heaven.. Messianic Jews do falsely want us all to believe that Jesus remains firmly connected to unsaved Jewish people . and that Jerusalem is still “that great city “ , but he has temporarily forsaken them because they forsook him . The Same attempt is made on when these deceivers say that Jewish people are still God’s chosen people . But an unbelieving Jew will go to the same hell that an unbelieving Gentile will go to . if you are a Christian, do you believe that the Jews go to Hell? the Christian answer will be “yes, anyone who doesn’t accept Jesus as their saviour goes to hell.” I think the more interesting question is, when did most of Jews stop worshipping God? Before or after Jesus was born?
.
Christianity is not about the support for Israel, the Jews RATHER IT IS ABOUT SERVING GOD THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND BEING IN HEAVEN WITH HIM
.

This movement to alter God’s name with absolutely nothing that resembles scriptural, textual, or linguistic support, has misled huge numbers of Christians into denying the Bible and accepting the work of Bible-scoffing atheists who have dominated the academic field of biblical studies since the mid-nineteenth century. I even hear people who claim to be King James Bible supporters use this perversion of the name of God. If they deny what the KJV says about the name of God, then they do not believe the KJV is God’s word. In fact, they do not believe that the Hebrew Old Testament is God’s word either, because it clearly says Yehovah, which becomes Jehovah in English pronunciation, and pronounced He’ova in Spanish. If one can change that word simply on a whim, which is all the Yahweh spelling is, then they can deny the spelling of absolutely any other word in the entire Hebrew Bible.

.

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 . PROVE ME WRONG FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT THEN.. Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’(Mt. 4:4,7,10 )
.

Jesus is a Greek name and Christ is a Greek word meaning the anointed one And the New Testament teaches that there is no distinction between Jews and Gentiles in Jesus.

.

26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28)

.

7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, 9 and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. (Matthew 3:7-10).

.

20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:20)

.

1 Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, 2 “Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.” (Matthew 15:1-2)

.

Interestingly, the Pharisees were quite concerned about ‘the tradition of the elders’ even though there was no biblical requirement to wash hands before eating bread. Now the Pharisees, like the Messianic Jews, prided themselves on keeping the entire law. But none but Jesus did.

.

27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. (Matthew 23:27-28)

.

In addition to overly relying on tradition, the New Testament teaches that the Pharisees broke and/or did not have a proper understanding of every one of the Ten Commandments

.

The Pharisees complained that the disciples ate with tax collectors and sinners, which was also a violation of their tradition (Luke 5:30); they complained that Jesus did that too (Luke 15:1-2).

.

5 Now when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 6 Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”

7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have taken no bread.”

8 But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves because you have brought no bread? 9 Do you not yet understand, or remember the five loaves of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up? 10 Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand and how many large baskets you took up? 11 How is it you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? — but to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees. (Matthew 16:5-12)

.

30 What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith; 31 but Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness. 32 Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. 33 As it is written: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” (Romans 9:30-33
