Speaking with his tongue which he does quite often.
For instance Franklin Graham representing BGEA:
5. Graham didn’t direct the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association to remove its website’s reference to Mormonism as a cult shortly before Election Day. But he agrees with the move. “I didn’t even know it was there. We have like 10,000 pages on our website,” Graham told us.
Graham said the reference isn’t coming back to the site. “I don’t want to be involved in calling people names,” he told us. “I want to reach people for Christ, and how can I do that if I’m calling them a name? I don’t even like the word cult; it sounds like dungeons and dragons or something.”
Give me a break….he didn’t even know it was there?
This guy is full of deceipt.
It’s okay to change your mind. It was a self-serving gesture for your ministry and an alliance to benefit you, and nothing more.
Talk about disingenuous!
“……The presentation of a false choice often reflects a deliberate attempt to eliminate the middle ground on an issue. Eldridge Cleaver used such a quotation during his 1968 presidential campaign: “You’re either part of the solution or part of the problem.” Another example would be the former US president George W. Bush stating that the world had a choice to make; “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.”……”
49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him,
because he followeth not with us.
50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
How about Benny Hinn?
Here is a you-tube of an example of Grace in the form of Benny Hinn a product of Billy Graham’s Evangelicals and Roman Catholicism
which I tried to transcribe a portion:
“Look at me. You’ve been oppressed by a devil. You’ve had demons literally try to kill you. You’ve had the devil himself try to kill you. I see when you were a child about three years of age. Someone put a curse on you. You remember that? “
(Woman shakes her head saying no.)
“You don’t because you were three years old.”
How does he know?
(Then Benny Hinn says something hard to translate and then says:)
“…….you are free in the name of Jesus From the top of her head to the soles of her feet she’s free.”
(Then Benny Hinn yells and pushes her: )
“She is free in Jesus name.”
(Then the crowd erupts in applause and he raises his hands in the air and says something I cannot translate:)
This is junk! Oh, it may be real, but it is still junk!
“4. Roman executions typically were considered a form of public spectacle. “
In the gospels and the following books the person who curses a person is Paul! And the other time a curse is mentioned by Peter in regards to Jesus becoming a curse and implicit in that assumption is Judas, the slaves that were hung in the south, and anyone who hangs on a tree which could have another meaning….such as.Christmas Tree Decorations/ decorators.
1 Corinthians 16:22
If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
In Roman Catholicism the only person allowed to curse an anathema marantha is the Pope and his Bishops.
Which of course you have to wonder: Was Saul/Paul a pope?
He sure traveled far and wide as do popes in our time.
Anyone who curses a three year old is sick.
What Bennie Hinn offers this woman is a false dilemma. A False Jesus. One that kills, maims, curses, possesses,
and ultimately destroys.
The devil posing as a healer.
What he offers her is Paul. Ba’al!
This is the way of Deception. However, Thank God we do have someone that loves us written about in the Gospel of John. And He is aware of what occurs in these arenas!
Here is a link with information From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia about Benny Hinn:
“Toufik Benedictus ”Benny” Hinn”
Soon after the 1967 Arab-Israeli War (a.k.a. “The Six-Day War)”, Hinn’s family emigrated to Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where he attended but later prematurely left the Georges Vanier Secondary School. In his books, Hinn states that his father was the mayor of Jaffa at the time of his birth, and that as a child, he was socially isolated and was handicapped by a severe stutter, but was nonetheless a first-class student. These claims, however, have been disputed by critics of Hinn. As a teenager in Toronto, Hinn converted from Greek Orthodoxy to Pentecostalism, eventually joining a singing troupe made up of young evangelicals. According to a 2004 CBC report on Hinn, his newfound religious devotion during this period became so intense that his family became concerned that he was turning into a religious fanatic. Hinn was taught the bible and mentored by Dr. Winston I. Nunes of Broadview Faith Temple in Toronto.“
Again speaking with his tongue
The Devil is tricky: Very interesting parable and very quaint except that the problem with it is the false dilemma such as what occurred recently in Japan. Please read:
Benny Hinn was raised Eastern Orthodox tradition which is another form of Catholicism, one of many. Then he became Pentacostal which is still another form of Catholicism, one of many!
They created it as another false choice!
Where do you think “All Roads Lead to Rome” originated?
Same choice offered for the “little ant parable of Billy Graham.”
They create a dilemma, and they offer solutions to makes you think you have overcome!
They interfere so that they may intervene! In legal terms it would be called “Entrapment.”
“In criminal law, entrapment is conduct by a law enforcement agent inducing a person to commit an offense that the person would otherwise have been unlikely to commit.”
In moral law it might be perhaps causing unwanted pregnancies by introducing drugs, propaganda and making abortion legal. Or causing joblessness through hate or prejudice causing a person to steal for food, deal drugs, prostitution etc.
While our troops fought in Vietnam drug use among youth definitely increased. Itis not by accident!
You are not given a fair choice!!!!!!
Like the nurses you hear about that create near death experiences in order to save you when in fact they are the enemy obviously. It gives them a false sense of power over others. Makes them think they are Gods angels or God himself.
Like Sophie’s Choice.
Billy Graham and Benny Hinn are products of Nazism…Facism…..Roman Catholicism!
(Above picture is a snapshot of Billy Graham posing as Jack Ready a Secret Service Agent at Love Field Airport in Dallas the day of the assassination of JFK. He is signaling someone after Jackie Kennedy received a Lamb chops puppet which she hid under the red roses, the same red roses that she mused about receiving in later interviews , and failing to mention the puppet! I would guess that is where she hid a weapon used to kill JFK and/or to create a diversion which Roy Kellerman did mention hearing a flurry of gun shots. Whatever was hidden inside the puppet was important enough for Billy Graham/Jack Ready to make a signal to someone….probably another agent/press/clergyman)
”Tyrannosaurus was a bipedal carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail. Relative to the large and powerful hindlimbs, Tyrannosaurus forelimbs were small, though unusually powerful for their size, and bore two clawed digits.“
Their massive skull is Golgotha:
The place of the skull where Jesus of Nazareth was nailed to the cross.
Their works are their veil!
They are evil.
They are Evangelicals: Evil Angels: Beasts
2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh,
that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
3And these things will they do unto you,
because they have not known the Father, nor me.
4But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
The pictures of Billy Graham are snapshots from Greta Van Susteren’s interview of him talking about the Bush family .
The last picture is of a man (who I think is none other than Billy Graham in disguise) at the airport with JFK in Dallas less than an hour before the assassination right before he enrages
because he is caught on camera signaling to someone with his two claws
as Jacky receives something at the fence line.
10And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness;
and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains (panis?=demons)
and their sores (roses?),
and repented not of their deeds.

13When 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.
27And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?28And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets
Why would Jesus Christ, the Son of God, ask
Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? or Whom do men say that I am?
If He is the Son of God, wouldn’t He know who he was?
Wouldn’t he know what they were saying about Him?
The true Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was well aware of what people
were thinking and saying who He was!
15He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17And 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.
29And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
And Peter answereth and saith unto him,
Thou art the Christ.
18And 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.19And 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.
This Synoptic Jesus tells Peter who he is……as if he did not know.
Peter just told Jesus who he was, but now Jesus is telling Peter who he is!
He had just miraculously fed 4000 people out of a pittance of food earlier
and he did not want his disciples to tell anyone who he was?
Why were those 4000 people hanging out with him fasting for 3 days
that he fed with a few fishes and a few loaves of bread?
Did the 4000 men not know who they were either?
This is utter nonsense!
What was in their fish?
This is an attempt to build a church on Peter’s name.
Then Jesus charges them to tell no man that he is Jesus the Christ after he goes through this strange conversation with Peter about who he is etc.
The True Messiah knows who he is
and what people were thinking
and even what would happen in the future!
If he didn’t know who he was then how in the world would he expect us to figure it out?
21From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.22Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.23But he turned, and said unto Peter,
Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me:
for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
30And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.31And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.32And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.33But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples,
he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan:
for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.
The Gospel of Matthew 6:17 above has Jesus BLESSING Peter and giving Peter the keys to the kingdom
and then tells him that he is the rock which the church will be built upon
and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it
and within a short time (like within the same conversation) Matthew 6:23
Jesus REBUKES Peter
and says that Peter is SATAN!
Not only does he say he is Satan, but also an offense to him!
What happened to the gates of hell not prevailing against the church?
It lasted a whole minute!
This is like a Japanese Monster movie dubbed in English
out of sync!
At the very least the Jesus that “charged them to tell no man” that he was the christ obviously was the anti-christ! The Gospel of Matthew’s Jesus was the antichrist by his own words as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew it seems. You can read the post called Tell No Man linked on Merangue’s Blog.
In the Gospel of John
At the Last Supper,
after Jesus and his apostles had eaten,
He talks to his disciples about who He is and explains Himself to them
and what is going to happen to Him and to them!
After he had risen from the grave and visited them
he gives them the HOLY GHOST!
21Then said Jesus to them again,
Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
22And when he had said this, he breathed on them,
and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
23Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them;
and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
NO CLOVEN TONGUES OF FIRE!
NO SPEAKING IN TONGUES!
NO MIGHTY WIND!
(Consistent with Genesis and the creation of the world and the creation of mankind.)
OBVIOUSLY, JESUS DID NOT GIVE THE KEYS of the KINGDOM TO PETER !!!
There are no keys!
THAT IS PROPAGANDA!
THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW AND MARK
HAVE TURNED THE TRUTH UPSIDE DOWN!
They have managed to make Jesus sound like a lunatic,
which is typical for the Synoptic Jesus!
You either believe in Jesus or you don’t. You believe in God or your don’t. Which God?
I BELIEVE in the Jesus who acted like a sane person which is in the Gospel of John and who he glorified, His Father.
I believe in the Jesus that knew who he was and didn’t need others to tell him.
I think the Synoptic Gospels are like actors/decoys
interacting with a hologram of what they want to have occurred
in order to change facts and twist the truth to replace the truth with fiction and to create confusion.
When doing the CBS transcriptions of the JFK assassination found on Merangue’s Blog I used their film and the reporters reporting and added my two cents of what I saw occurring that they didn’t notice such as the puppet being handed over the fence line at the airport in Dallas to Jackie Kennedy and her tucking the puppet in her roses. The people on the side of the fence line with the President….his entourage are also similar to people interacting with a hologram of the event that is filmed. Some of them act as if they know what is occurring or going to occur and are witnessing it and acting in it at the same time. some of those faces are recognizable. The gospel of Matthew other than the first few chapters does the same thing in a way without a documentary to back it up.
The genealogy is a different matter and is only found in the Gospel of Matthew. However in a few other posts I cover that subject and my inconclusive conclusions (because I am not a bible scholar and hold no degrees) with the help of a few other apologists who have researched it demonstrate the catch-22 of it’s proof.
The story that goes along with the genealogy account seems to indicate a pact or royal alliance between England and Germany/Rome.
I don’t recall many Jewish people with the name Elizabeth, though I could be wrong. The cousin of Mary and since there seem to be many Mary’s to add to the confusion. One in particular called Mary wife of Chuza which seems to be a BIG CLUE. And then we never hear about Joseph after a certain point. Not a hint. He just disappears. We do however hear about Joseph of Ari-mathea.
Kind of reminds me of Benghazi. Everyone more concerned with the IRS abuses (which by the way have a long history of abuses for the average middle class American) than figuring out about all the lies, the coverup of Benghazi, the UN speech by Barack Obama’s promise/pledge about Islam soon after Benghazi. Even Franklin Graham was insulted by the IRS, or so he says and I don’t recall that he was insulted nor alarmed by Barack Obama’s pledge at the UN,
nor anyone else that I know of.
What happened to the witnesses? Were they executed by executive order or was it a mandate?
The Tradition of Christmas
For those that defend Christmas the tradition such as O’reilly who staunchly and vehemently defends the holiday to honor Jesus why on earth would he laud a musician Herbie Hancock for his religion of Buddhism? Seemed odd to me. I know Herbie Hancock’s music is definitely laudable, but his religion? Course Roman Catholic Jesuits prefer Buddhism to delineating the differences in the gospels which are many. I guess it’s taboo. He just wrote a book called Killing Jesus because he thought or felt that God had prompted him to write it in his third installment of the trilogy about killing:
the first Killing Lincoln and the second Killing Kennedy
and the third of the trilogy and last but not least Killing Jesus.
And by the way I will include at the bottom of the page the flags of the Middle East and parts of North Africa and Italy and many of them are the colors of Christmas except a few. I wondered if since Jesus was Jewish why the colors of Christmas aren’t blue and white instead of green, red and white. Seems odd since the instructions in the Old Testament for certain housing and decor are blue and white and REAL GOLD (not credit!)
Seems to me in honor of Jesus
even though O’reilly admitted Jesus probably wasn’t born in December
we would celebrate his birth with the colors of his country and his ancestry
but then maybe Christmas really isn’t about Jesus.
18Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.19And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.20And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!21Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.22And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
This rendition of Jesus Christ in the gospel of Matthew ie the Synoptic Jesus
is having a hissy fit,
and not only that, he was talking to a fig tree
AND IF THAT ISN’T BAD ENOUGH
SUPPOSEDLY HE HAD A REASON
FOR THIS MADNESS
because it had not produced fruit for him to eat
as he expected because he was hungry that particular morning.
If Jesus can feed 5000 men with a few loaves of bread,
why could he not make the fig tree produce fruit for him presently?
IF Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
knows what happens 2000 years in advance,
you would think he would know that that fig tree did not have fruit on it
before he hoped to eat figs from it that morning.
Maybe he fasted for too long and lost his good senses. Sounds like Peter in the book of Acts on his rooftop praying and fasting.
WHY WOULD THE disciples marvel at the withering fig tree?
Like I said, if it were cursed by Jesus wouldn’t they expect it to die?
But, of course, this is rubbish!
Why would the disciples want to have faith enough to curse a fig tree?
It is stupid!
IT makes Jesus look insane and his followers look like stupid idiots,
but very Synoptic!
I’m surprised that this SYNOPTIC Jesus Christ didn’t
But he does eventually because he is Synoptic!
Please read about the Synoptic Source or rather the SS!
12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:13And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
He comes haply?
Sounds like he was skipping with flowers in his hair.
What did the Synoptic Jesus expect,
if the time of figs was not yet?
Obviously, the fig tree was not ready to bear its fruit!
IF only Simon of Cyrene had been there!
This is mocking Jesus in the gospel of John when he says his time is not yet!
6Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
Jesus Christ did not go around cursing trees!
Jesus Christ had just raised Lazarus who had been dead for four days.
The Jesus that is propagandized in the Synoptic gospels
cursing the fig tree is
and may I add…….
Why in the world would Jesus Christ, the Son of God, waste his time cursing a fig tree?
IN between these verses in the gospel of Mark, Jesus Christ overturns the tables of the money changers in the temple, but actuality Jesus overturned the tables at an earlier time in the Gospel of John soon after the wedding in Cana.
The Synoptics do not include the wedding in Cana, because the Synoptic authors were not there!
I suppose that is what the fig tree curse mock is all about….
the Synoptic Author was jealous that he was not chosen!
The Synoptic writers go to the extreme to make Jesus Christ look like a weirdo,
because He was upset with the money changers
and the degradation of the place of worship
The reason for their extreme ridicule is because
they were the money changers in the place of worship
and they had turned it into a marketplace!
The Synoptic gospels are trying to confuse events and add their inane teaching
to fill-in space because they are full of air
where the true teaching and true miracles are discarded
and replaced with their
19And when even was come, he went out of the city.20And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.21And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.23For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Here the author of the gospel of Mark is also mocking Peter “calling into remembrance“.
He calls into remembrance the fig tree that was cursed
moments before as in the gospel of Matthew
and a day later in the gospel of Mark.
Which is similar to the contradiction between the
Last Supper in the gospel of John and the Last Supper in the Synoptic Gospels
which are on two different days.
Then Jesus tells Peter to have faith in God because the tree that was cursed is withered away.
This is utterly ridiculous!
(I CERTAINLY WILL NOT HAVE FAITH BECAUSE OF A FIG TREE !!!!!)
and THIS INANE TEACHING OF THE SYNOPTIC AUTHOR OF THE SYNOPTIC JESUS
has a great deal to do with
NOT ONLY IS THIS RIDICULOUS
BUT AN INSULT TO
Here is a site on the internet I found explaining the fig tree curse/miracle. It is at Christian Courier.com, “a place for reasonable faith” and here is their explanation for what occurred,
but not really.
Why Did Jesus “Curse” the Fig Tree?
In this study he argues that the tree was probably not on someone’s property so therefore Jesus had the right to pronounce judgement upon a free fig tree. I guess that has been an objection to some, whether Jesus had the right to kill a tree. hmmmmmm. Then in number four of this study, he says that Jesus did not perceive that the tree only had leaves from afar even though Jesus is a deity and was expecting some fruit. His explanation for Jesus not being “on the ball” was that Jesus was not always in a deity-mode, sometimes Jesus was lazy and did not use his deity-ism. Because there was no fruit under the leaves that he did not see, he cursed the fig tree. By the way, this person is one of many that write and educate the masses justifying these non-events because they are not willing to discern and come to grips with the fact that some of the gospel is not true. They also hate Israel and this writer thinks God is done with Israel and he is so far off the track. They also have been trained since their birth to believe that the bible is INERRANT. Kind of like how they teach that the Pope is infallible. They have been trained not to question scripture, because they have been taught/brainwashed (as most of us have) and are just passing it on. It is deception and because someone tags the name of Jesus Christ to the insanity included in the bible and their own propaganda against Israel they will justify IT any witch way.
So, Jesus Christ used this curse of the fig tree as an object lesson for his disciples.
What in the world did they learn?
They learned that you can remove a mountain with your faith
somehow demonstrated through the cursing of a fig tree.
This is what is called “mocking a mountain out of a MOLE HILL.”
This is UNREASONABLE FAITH!
It is not in the Gospel of John, because it did not happen!
Jesus did not come to curse a fig tree!
Basically, the moral to this ridiculous non-event is to replace the fig tree
with the mustard tree
The deceiver came to curse, to ridicule, and to sow confusion, discord and deception.
IT IS A DUMB STORY!
I believe this dichotomy has to do with Nathanael under the fig tree
and that Jesus called Nathanael “a true Israelite
in whom there is no guile.”
However, Luke’s rendition of Jesus Christ does!
29For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
s30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
31For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
I DON’T KNOW……DO TELL!
Oh yea. Luke knows because he was there when they did it ……INDEED!
THEY PROBABLY ALL WILL JOIN WITH ROME TO FORM A UNIVERSAL RELIGION ….NOT TO OFFEND ANYONE….
AS LONG AS IT IS HEADED BY ROME!
THE MOTHER HEN
WHO WITH HER INFIL–TRAITORS MAKES MEN
Besides isn’t cursing a tree ….a spell? A trick. Cursing is Paul’s business! Paul does so in the books of the bible that promote him. In fact, it is Paul who catches men in their guile by being crafty:
2 Corinthians 12:16
But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.
Please view this you tube:
Jesus had just spoken to the multitude on the mountain where he delivered the Sermon on the Mount and came down the mountain and a man with leprosy asked to be clean and Jesus cleanses him and says the following:
1When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.
2And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
3And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
What happened to the multitudes that at that time were following him as stated in Matthew 8:1 just two verses preceeding? Since we are reading about it in Matthew obviously someone knew!
Are priests not men?
Or is there “another reason” for this strange request?
What are these strange requests about- to Tell No Man when obviously they did tell men and also purposefully recorded their strange “Tell No Man” statements in the bible?
Again in Matthew Jesus tells his disciples to tell no man,
but this time
that he was Jesus the Christ
Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
Could it be that he wasn’t the real Jesus the Christ,
but An imposter?
And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.
This does not make sense!
By the way, these Tell No Man requests are not in the Gospel of John!
And he charged them that they should tell no man:
but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;
Now come on,
if this is the Son of God don’t you think he would know that they would publish it?
This is an imposter—- a made up version of Jesus Christ!
The real Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy.
He would know that they would publish it!
Why the pretense?
This is a mock of the real Jesus Christ! A facade.
In other words, an image. A deceptive image!
And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.
And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.
21And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing; 22Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.23And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and and take his cross daily, and follow me.
Wait a minute, if you don’t tell them, how will they come?
This is nonsensical!
The Gospel of John
include this same antithesis, Tell No Man!
Nor does Jesus of the Gospel of John tell his followers to deny themselves, etc.
Here is a strange coincidence:
16And when Paul’s sister’s son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.17Then Paul called one of the centurions unto him, and said, Bring this young man unto the chief captain: for he hath a certain thing to tell him.18So he took him, and brought him to the chief captain, and said, Paul the prisoner called me unto him, and prayed me to bring this young man unto thee, who hath something to say unto thee.19Then the chief captain took him by the hand, and went with him aside privately, and asked him, What is that thou hast to tell me?20And he said, The Jews have agreed to desire thee that thou wouldest bring down Paul to morrow into the council, as though they would enquire somewhat of him more perfectly.21But do not thou yield unto them: for there lie in wait for him of them more than forty men, which have bound themselves with an oath, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him: and now are they ready, looking for a promise from thee.
22So the chief captain then let the young man depart,
and charged him,
See thou tell no man
that thou hast shewed these things to me.
Same Lingo: charged them / tell no man
as in the 3 Synoptic Gospels
(Matthew, Mark and Luke) but also in the book of Acts!
Now, who wrote the Synoptic gospels?
It is pretty obvious!
Sounds like the same person who wrote Acts
wrote quite a bit of the Synoptic gospels
of Matthew, Mark and Luke!
The writer of these Tell No Man phrases is mocking the Gospel of John when he said No Man in many verses. It is obvious that the authors of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, the Book of Acts and so forth
(in their deep hate and their evil insanity)
had the Gospel of John
to degrade in every way they could!
Remember when Peter escaped from prison went to another place after James was killed and Herod died. Then Saul turned into Paul after fulfilling their mission and both Paul and Barnabus took Mark? Per chance they meant the book of Mark and not the man or both. Maybe that was their mission. Because Mark would not work they added a few more gospels. Barnabus and Paul had problems so Barnabus took Mark to Cyprus.
Why do you suppose the real Jesus Christ threw out the money changers in the temple,
if he did not want people to know about him?
Why would he raise Lazarus from the dead if he did not want people to know about him?
Why would he enter Jerusalem on a colt of an ass and have people laying down palms and believing in him
if he did not want us to know about him?
Why would he feed the multitudes if he did not want anyone to know about him?
Why would he have disciples if he did not want people to know about him?
Why would he heal people of their infirmities if he did not want people to know about him?
Why would he raise himself from the dead if he did not want people to know about him?
Why would Jesus come
if he did not want people to know about him?
John 12:19 ……..
“behold, the world is gone after him.”
Obviously, he wanted the people to know about him!
And I believe he came to confront an imposter…
so that we would be able to recognize who He is!
Why do the Synoptic Gospels seem so confused and confusing ……
Maybe the intention of the authors of those gospels is to confuse.
23Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.24But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,25And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.
31He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.32And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth;
and no man receiveth his testimony.
33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal
that God is true.
The true Messiah Jesus Christ wanted people to know about Him!
(Even before he was raised from the dead)
How would people believe
if he did not have witnesses?
41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid.
And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
42And I knew that thou hearest me always:
but because of the people which stand by I said it,
that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
He wanted them to know and to be witnesses. It was important to him.
Again, the Synoptic gospels of Matthew and Mark do not have this event of the
raising of Lazarus in their gospels.
Only the gospel of John!
However the Gospel of Luke does tell another story of Lazarus.
.Jesus Christ did not go around telling everyone to
tell no man
He wanted us to know!
17The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead,
18For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.1
9The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing?
behold, the world is gone after him.
Who is ye?
1. To be greater in strength or influence; triumph: prevailed against the enemy.
I think that whoever the Pharisees were referring to (Ye) is the
in the above verse was so jealous of Jesus because he raised Lazarus from the dead and that the people believed in Him. Luke, Paul, and his friends ravaged the Gospel of John with the other gospels and Acts, and so forth. There are so many, many examples of the antithetical verses against the gospel of John and the truth about Jesus Christ.
Maybe that is why Paul says in the following verses:
1 Corinthians 16:21
The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand.
Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.
2 Thessalonians 3:17
The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.
I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.
Because Paul is lying to cover up the fact that Paul is also the writer of these antithetical scriptures against the Gospel of John and the truth and wants us to follow him instead of the true Jesus Christ as he attempts to do in his writings using the name of Jesus Christ for his own
Otherwise why would Paul say “in mine own hand“? He could just sign off as Paul but he adds “in mine own hand.”
22Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
DO NOT WORSHIP the Shroud of Turin, NOR the Pope, NOR any Institution, NOR the Bible, NOR the Torah, NOR the book of Catechism, NOR Mary, NOR the Temple, NOR any shrine, NOR any Bishop, or Priest, or apostle, NOR any book, man, religion or beast, NOR icon, NOR idol, NOR relic, NOR the Eucharist!
Why would Jesus Christ the true Messiah tell everyone he met to tell NO MAN?
He did not come to us to bewilder us or to hide who he was….
what would be the point?
He wanted us to know Him, perceive Him, hear Him, see Him, and to believe in Him. The TRUE Jesus Christ wanted us to know the Father through Him so that we might have life in His Name! He was not trying to hide like a criminal as the Synoptic gospels would have you believe. He didn’t come just so that the priests might know him. He did not come just so the upper class might have access to him. He did not come just for Kings and Queens or for a privileged few as in Luke 10:24 above would have you believe. He came for the world because:
16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
The reason that Jesus Christ came to Israel and not to another country is because it is the God of Israel that is His Father!
The Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
57Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself,
and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
But the Synoptic Jesus said:
And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
Get the drift?
This is the ANOTHER Reason!
Obviously, there are two different Jesus’s written about in the New Testament!
The Synoptic Jesus and the Jesus in the Gospel of John.
Since the Synoptic Gospel seems so dysfunctional, confusing and scattered in comparison to the Gospel of John, who should we believe?
Obviously, we should believe the Gospel of John which does not have Jesus going about telling the multitudes to tell no man about him knowing that they would tell about him.
In reference to this verse:
4And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
Jesus of the Gospel of John came to cut out the middle man so that we would not have to shew yourself to the priest or offer a gift that was commanded by Moses or pay an indulgence or cofess to a priest i a confession booth or say a bunch of hail marys with a bunch of beads and so that it would not be a testi-money unto them.
Soon after Jesus died the temple was destroyed,
that ought to tell you something, does it not?If Jesus of the Gospel of Matthew were the real Jesus wouldn’t he know prophetically that the temple would be destroyed? Why would he want someone to give a gift that Moses commanded if the temple was about to be destroyed….but Jesus of the Gospel of Matthew didn’t know, and preferred the middle man because he was a tax man and made a living off people sinning and probably laundering moneyand so he made a dumb error. An error that helps to distinguish the real from the imposter.Whose line is it anyway?Matthew the tax collector a supposed apostle written about in the Synoptic Gospels,but not in the Gospel of John.Sound familiar?
The second term Correspondent dinner President Barack Obama said :
“In my first term, I sang Al Green;
in my second term, I’m going with Young Jeezy.
In my first term, we ended the war in Iraq;
in my second term, I will win the war on Christmas.”
Today his limo broke down today in Israel. I wonder if that’s a sign?
Off to a rough start, eh?
Kind of fakey!
Of course, imposters are fakey.
I’m sure he has something up his sleeve and in his little warped mind.
Ynet is reporting that by order of the Agriculture Ministry, the magnolia tree brought from the US by the president and planted by Obama and Peres earlier this afternoon is being dug up. Really.
Plants cannot be brought in from abroad “without undergoing a check” by the ministry, the report quotes the bureaucrats as saying. If this were April 1, we’d assume this was a wind-up.
Trust but verify,
I would verify and never trust Obama under any circumstances,
because he billed it!
Beware of strangers bearing gifts!
Something happens to people when they get involved with Barack Obama or Michelle Obama
as if they become possessed such as Beyonce. I’m not a fan (although she is talented and beautiful) and especially now with her new image. Lately, she looks as if she is possessed, and sings like it too which is too bad. She had better fight it (the possession) if she wants to remain human and in her right mind. Her lyrics to the song mentioned in this article are sickening and it has nothing to do with getting married as Rush Limbaugh suggests, which is utterly insane as I think Rush also has become possessed. What a remarkably stupid conclusion he came up with for her lyrics.
The change in her seems to coincide with her relationship with the Obamas.
They are evil.
Another strange coincidence is Obama flew to Vegas to meet with Beyonce and Jay-Z to campaign for his reelection tight about the time these men were killed in Benghazi or shortly afterward. Was it the set of the movie Vegas or Las Vegas, Nevada? I don’t care if there is some deep meaning in the lyrics supposedly, I think they stink! It’s as if the killing of the men at Benghazi and his reelection and Bow Down are related somehow and I don’t think that is a good sign. Now he is in Israel and middle east spreading his wander lust with no guarantees, of course. IF you watch him talk about peace in the middle east and the possibility of peace and then say but there are no guarantees it is like you can almost spot something deviant in his demeanor in the last part of that statement. Like his other self peeks out and takes control. Quite revealing as if he has a multiple personality disorder. I think he is a psychopath. Here is the statement but looking for the video of that particular statement which definitely demonstrates this disorder in my opinion if you watch closely:
“There is an opportunity there, there’s a window,” Obama told his audience. “Peace is possible. … I’m not saying it’s guaranteed. I can’t even say that it is more likely than not. But it is possible.”
Kerry yangs him afterwards and says the window is closing. LOL
Of course a lot of american tax dollars being used to grease many peoples agendas such as Jordan, Syria,Egypt and the Palestinians. 300 million American tax dollars going to Palestinians who do this to people or who laugh when the towers of New York were obliterated with people in them:
Does that make sense?
Even though it is american money and the reason probably is because it isn’t really going for infrastructure it’s probably going to terrorism and an american company probably would find that out. This is insanity.
By the way I thought these arab countries had oil money why do they need ours.
Did Jordan contribute to the victims of the storm Sandy? Or the New Orleans hurricane victims? If Jordan can take in all of the Syrian refugees why not take in the Palestinians? But that isn’t their desire or purpose, is it?
Watch our for the queen of Jordan, Queen Rania of Jordan because Obama wants her and so does Michelle.
He buys his friends and his enemies:) In truth I think everyone is his enemy. He does not give a hoot about anyone but himself. (Notice his hand gestures look just like Bill Clintons hand gestures. OD!) I wonder if Billy Graham has the same kind of hand gestures. I kind of think he does. Obviously it is taught but it seems they are all in cahoots.
Painful to watch because it is obvious he is a very sick individual.
It’s his fee, his charge.
Wherever he goes he does stir it up BECAUSE he wants to escape the questions about Benghazi..
Definitely does avoid answering.
Two states, three states, or four states in Israel
will not help, but will eviscerate Israel.
That is why Obama is in Israel.
That is OBAMAS M.O.
Do Not ride with him in” the Beast’. Remember what happened to JFK. It was the limo that held him in place to be assassinated by JacQueline Kennedy. The injury that raised his arms and had only one entry wound came from the limousine that he rode in and was rigged to make her job easier.
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.2And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.3And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.
Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.4Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.5And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.
“Salute no man by the way”? What does that mean?
I looked up “salute” in the bible online and there sure is a lot of Saluting goin’ on.
Please click on this link:
So if they are supposed to salute no man by the way,
then why do they do so much saluting in this link?
This is absolute nonsense and deception by the way!
Does “no man” mean something else?
Who is no man?
Funny, because in the Synoptic Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says:
And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you.
Does he mean do not be deceived by any man or does he mean Let NO MAN deceive you,
or was it warning you that “no man” is deceiving you??????
That may sound crazy, but on the other hand we are talking about deception.
And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing?And they said, Nothing.36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
I thought they did not have a purse, scrip, and shoes above in verses Luke 9:1-3 at the top of this page and now they are supposed to have a purse. and take it and likewise their scrip, which they didn’t have but lacked nothing, and sell the only garment they have to buy a sword.
Is this nuts, or what?
Oh yea, and salute no man by the way! Weird!
11And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.12He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.13And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.14But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.15And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.16Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.17And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.18And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.19And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.20And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:21For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.22And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant.
Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:23Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
24And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.25(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)26For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.28And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.
Honestly, do you really think Jesus the Messiah would say verse 27:
27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me
SOUNDS MORE LIKE A MURDERING BANKER!
After reading these verses and the parable
I would have been a very confused disciple!
1. stern or severe in attitude or manner an austere schoolmaster
2. grave, sober, or serious an austere expression
3. self-disciplined, abstemious, or ascetic an austere life
4. severely simple or plain an austere design
Austerity programs can be controversial, as they tend to have an adverse impact on the poorest segments of the population. In many situations, austerity programs are implemented by countries that were previously under dictatorial regimes, leading to criticism that the citizens are forced to repay the debts of their oppressors.
So basically the Synoptic Jesus
is saying that he is an oppressor!
While on the subject of austerity here are some interesting articles from Rome of all places about Austerity cuts:
best part of the article is the comment by:
“So now living within your means is austere? This is just more spendthrift tripe.
If governments had been responsible in the first place and not given away more than they have taken in the economies around the world would be healthy and hearty. What were seeing is the result of irresponsible politicians on both sides of the aisle.”
As I recall it was those union workers that stood up for the Roman Catholic Entity last year in regards to the homosexual child abuse charges against the church
and it was the Mayor of Rome Gianni Alemanno who amassed and rallied support from those union workers in Rome to save that entity.
“Presentation of Sculpture is First Act of New Sister Cities Relationship; Mayor of Rome to Announce Dream of Rome Project….”
The Capitoline Venus
“The Capitoline Venus is a significant descendent of the first, revolutionary statue of this type, the renowned Aphrodite of Cnidos by Praxiteles. With the Cnidian Venus, Praxiteles introduced a new subject to the history of art: the large-scale, freestanding, fully nude female. This type of image became known in modern times as a “Modest Venus” (Venus pudica)
because the goddess attempts to cover her nakedness…..”
I just don’t envision in any way the true Jesus to be austere. To me He seems to be very patient and thoughtful, at least in the Gospel of John. He laid down his life for his friends and that does not sound like austerity. Nor did Jesus seem to be wishful to have his enemies slayed before him, at least not in the Gospel of John. IF he wanted to have them slayed before Him, then why didn’t he do that while he was being interrogated and beaten up. It wasn’t as if he didn’t have plenty of opportunities, but He did not do that. However, I do believe the imposter and the deceiver rendered in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke would slay their enemies, and I believe they did slay them.
Here is an article about slaying with another meaning, please read:
Think about this statement of the Synoptic Jesus:
Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow
So now he is not only a murdering banker,
but also a thief!
49I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.50And they all forsook him, and fled.51And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:52And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.53And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
Perhaps this young man took what Luke’s Jesus said in Luke 9:1-3 and Luke 10: 3-5 above literally?
I really don’t think Jesus said the stuff that Luke said that he said, and nor do I think this young man followed him, etc. I think it is malicious nonsense!
IF anything can be made of these verses in Mark is that there was another that the young men followed (or laid hold of) and it is not the real Jesus!
There is something very strange about the mention of this linen cloth since it is not mentioned in any other gospel.
Why would this incident be added? IF this had happened it would be in the Gospel of John, but it isn’t. John was there! If you read the Gospel of John it is very detailed in comparison to the mish-mash of incidents, parables, healings and ramblings of the other synoptic gospels.(Matthew, Mark and Luke)
Seems to me that the linen cloth left behind may be pointing to the Shroud of Turin and these verses (Mark 14:51-52) must have been added quite a bit later on.
A cruel joke of some kind!
Something to consider very seriously:
Is the young naked man that fled and left the linen cloth the same man that is on the Shroud of Turin?
In Acts, there is a contention between Barnabus and Saul after their mystery ‘ministry’ when James (brother of John Zebedee) is murdered by Herod and Peter is imprisoned by the same and then Peter goes to “another place” and then Herod mysteriously dies as told by Luke the writer of Acts and then Saul turns into Paul.
After these events Paul and Barnabus take John Mark with them.
I wonder if John Mark was Peter’s son? I wonder what the “another place” is referring to since the other two (possibly three) are murdered!
DID PETER SWITCH SIDES?
REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED AT THE SEA OF GALILLEE WHEN JESUS VISITED THE DISCIPLES THE THIRD TIME AFTER HE HAD RISEN
AND WARNED PETER TO FOLLOW HIM.
18Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands,
and another shall gird thee,
and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
19This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God.
And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him,
BEFORE PETER SEEMS TO END UP IN ROME, JAMES AND HEROD ARE KILLED AND PETER GOES TO ANOTHER PLACE (which obviously is Rome). PETER TELLS THE LADY AT THE DOOR TO TELL JAMES
( I thought James was already dead – killed by Herod)
THAT HE WAS RELEASED BY AN ANGEL FROM THE PRISON, YET HE GIRDS HIMSELF
WHICH IS OPPOSITE TO WHAT JESUS SAYS AT THE SEA OF GALILEE!
I FIND THAT INTERESTING!
THE BOOK OF ACTS WAS OBVIOUSLY WRITTEN AFTER THE GOSPEL OF JOHN AND AGAIN PURPOSEFULLY CONTRARY!
7And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
smote past tense of smite (Verb)
8And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.9And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
wist= knew / be aware of
So does the above mean that Peter lied or embellished his story of his escape from prison? Or was Peter deceived as I believe he was deceived when he fell into a trance and was offered unclean animals to kill and eat in the Book of Acts.
WHAT IS LUKE ALLUDING TO WHEN HE SAYS PETER DEPARTED AND WENT INTO ANOTHER PLACE IN :
17But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.
WAS THIS WHEN PETER WAS KILLED AND THE ABOVE STORY IS MERELY A COVER STORY?
OR DID HE TURN HIS ALLEGIANCE TO ANOTHER I.E. FOLLOWED ANOTHER!
Or is Luke lying about Peter and what Peter said about the angel telling him to GIRD THYSELF in opposition to what was written in the gospel of John at the Sea of Galilee?
Either way it is contrary to the Gospel of John….
Jesus also said (in the Gospel of John) that the PRINCE OF THIS WORLD WAS COMING AND HE HAS NOTHING IN ME.
30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
WHO IS JESUS TALKING ABOUT?
I THINK HE IS TALKING ABOUT THE “THE ANOTHER” THAT WAS GOING TO GIRD PETER WHEN HE GETS OLD! Or rather the one that would write about it in opposition to the gospel of John. It is no accident that just about everything written in the Synoptic Gospels opposes and mocks the Gospel of John. So I gather that the authors of those gospels are or represent the prince of this world!
25And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem,
when they had fulfilled their ministry,
and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.
WONDER WHAT THAT MINISTRY WAS?
JAMES THE BROTHER OF JOHN ZEBEDEE IS MURDERED (SUPPOSEDLY BY HEROD), HEROD IS KILLED (SUPPOSEDLY BY WORMS) AND PETER GOES TO ANOTHER PLACE and they take John surnamed Mark (man, book or both?)
Could the deaths of these men be the ministry that is fulfilled by Barnabus and Saul?
Then because John Mark does not “work” Paul doesn’t want to include John Mark in whatever it is he considered “work” in Acts 15:36-38. Very mysterious chronology of events!
36And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas, Let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the LORD, and see how they do.
37And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark.
38But Paul thought not good to take him with them, who departed from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work.
There is a “contention” between Paul and Barnabus. THEN Barnabus takes John Mark to Sicily. That is the last we hear about John Mark! However, we do hear about a person named Mark a verse later and I assume it is the same John surnamed Mark.
39And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus;
Who was John Mark? What happened to John Mark? He seems to disappear.
Some very strange things to consider in the Synoptic gospels that seem to cradle ACTS or visa-versa.
8Three shepherds also I cut off in one month;
and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.
ARE THE THREE ABOVE THAT ARE KILLED JAMES, HEROD AGRIPPA, AND POSSIBLY PETER, MAYBE JOHN MARK WHO THIS VERSE IN ZECHARIAH 11:8 IS REFERRING TO? IT SEEMS THEY HAPPENED VERY CLOSE TOGETHER in time! AND IT COINCIDES WITH THE MINISTRY COMPLETED BY SAUL AND BARNABUS WHEN SAUL MOLTS INTO PAUL.
HERE IS AN INTERESTING ARTICLE ABOUT THE WRITER OF MATTHEW AND THE WRITER OF ZECHARIAH:
“There are no dates given for chapters 9-14 and Zechariah’s name does not even appear in that section. Times have changed and there is no reference made to Darius or any other king. The temple is standing, instead of waiting to be built (cf. 9:8, 11:13-14, and 14:21). As a result, many scholars suggest that chapters 9-14 of Zechariah were not written by Zechariah at all.
There is very solid evidence to support this position.
Matthew 27:9-10:Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “They took the thirty silver coins, the price set on him by the people of Israel, and they used them to buy the potter’s field, as the Lord commanded me.”
Is this article suggesting that possibly Matthew or someone else wrote a part of the prophetic book of Zechariah! Or did he just misquote to mislead?
I think the author of the Gospel of Matthew did more than that!
1When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:
2And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
3Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
5And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
6And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
7And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.
8Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.
9Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;
10And gave them for the potter’s field,
as the Lord appointed me.
Who is the Lord in this last verse?
The problem I have with these verses in Matthew is that many people believed in Jesus (of the Gospel of John) because Jesus had raised Lazarus from the grave (in the Gospel of John) and it was the chief priests who were plotting to kill Lazarus and Jesus because they were losing their preeminence and fear of the Romans taking their nation and so forth.
48If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.
49And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,
50Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
14Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
Then there is Joseph of Arimathea who was a a rich man from Arimathea, waiting for the kingdom of God, a secret disciple who craved the body of Jesus and who was a prominent member of the Council.
By body does this also mean the followers of Jesus?
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
Please read about DECEIT:
Here is an interesting take on Joseph of Arimathea and Pilate:
What bewilders me is that Joseph of Arimathea is afraid of the Jews and is able to retrieve the body of Jesus from Pilate (a Roman).
Caiaphas and the chief priests are afraid that the Romans will take away their nation and all people would believe that Jesus is their Messiah if they allow Him to continue, so they plot to kill Him.
Another thing that bewilders me is that when Joseph of Arimathea goes to Pilate to take down the body of Jesus….why is Pilate surprised or shocked that Jesus was dead already? Supposedly IN THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS there was an earthquake, and darkness for three hours, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. Wouldn’t one of these events and even more, all of these events make a person aware or suspicious that something unique was happening? Unless PILATE was taking a very heavy nap! And Joseph of Arimethea wants to bury Jesus before the Passover feast and an earthquake has just occurred, the veil of the Temple is torn in half, and darkness over the land? Wouldn’t Joseph of Arimethea have been aware of this,
IF WHAT IS WRITTEN IN THE GOSPELS OF MATTHEW, MARK AND LUKE WERE TRUE ?
Or was Joseph of Arimethea in a hurry to hide the body of Jesus in a tomb with a big stone and get on with the Passover?
(Often people that commit a crime like to bury their crime quickly and there happened to be a grave nearby owned by Joseph of Arimethea.)
Why would Pilate give the body of Jesus to Joseph of Arimethea?
Who is Joseph of Arimethea?
Is he that “other disciple” written about in the gospel of John that let Peter in to where Jesus was being interrogated?
Seems to me Pilate was being awful lax just giving the body of Jesus to Joseph of Arimethea and did not seem nor need to confer with all the other chief priests and the Counsel who seemed to be in his ear before.
Maybe Joseph of Arimathea was the top man and Pontius was his servant!
Here is an article about Joseph of Arimathea with a comment about the burial of Jesus. The reason I add this article is not for the article itself, but for the comment by Anna Rosa M which I found to be thought provoking at the least. I included the article even though I think it is a bit contrived so you can see where the comment came from. Beneath the link for the article is the comment that seems appropriate to add to my post:
“Even stranger things…
For the record, the Jews have never, ever practiced any form of embalming. Don’t take my word for it, check Judaic Mishnaic Law from the first century for confirmation.
As such, what on earth where Joseph A. and Nicodemus doing at the tomb…after sundown…with 70 plus pounds of spices and oils?
To claim that the wrapping of Our Lord’s body in linens, spices and oils was “in accordance with Jewish custom” is absolutely wrong.
Either the author was completely unaware of Jewish custom…or the ritual being performed on Christ’s body was NOT Jewish in origin.”

So why would a Jewish Councilman of the Sanhedrin, a “goodman and a just” as Luke describes Joseph of Arimathea, bury Jesus in an unJewish way,
or was Joseph of Arimathea not Jewish
and was actually in charge of the whole business.
Usually you give the body to the family, but that is nowadays. I have no idea what they did back then and being under occupation of the Romans.
Seems that the tomb of Arimethea was pre-calculated as the sight for the body of Jesus.
Furthermore, if Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemas had already prepared the body of Jesus, why would the women come to the tomb to do the very same thing. I thought it was already done by these two secret disciples.
It does not make sense!
50And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just:
“and a just” a just what?
a just man? a just judge? a just counsellor?
A Just Prince?
I think there is something missing in that sentence!
51(The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
By the way, does God break his promises? If you read the prophecies in Zechariah, it seems that whoever wrote this part of Zechariah says that God does break His covenants:
10And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.
If Matthew wrote part of Zechariah…..Could it be that he is the prince that made the covenant that he breaks with all the people (the many)? The only covenant made in the gospel of Matthew and the Synoptic Gospels is at the “last supper” which is not written about in the gospel of John!
I don’t believe that God breaks His covenants that He makes,
but I do believe that a covenant was made by a deceiver, and it was broken, and this person thinks he is God.
He is the prince of this world, a liar, a murderer, and a thief!
IN essence what I mean is that the rendition of Jesus and the events described in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke (the Synoptic Gospels) seem to describe Jesus as a thief, murdering banker, austere, unforgiving, eager to watch men slayed before him, avenging such as threatening the daughters of Jerusalem, a lunatic such as cursing a fig tree and comparing faith to a mustard seed, telling everyone he met not to tell about him as the multitudes were following him and sends them to the temple to give them alms…
Give me a break!
Referring to the prophecy in Zechariah as the prophecy in Jeremiah which Matthew (or whoever wrote the gospel of Matthew) is deceptive and reminds me of what Peter said happened to Judas Iscariot in the Book of Acts, written by Luke (whoever he is) -who also refers to Jeremiah, and why Matthew should be the 12th apostle by drawing lots between two men, who I think were one and the same person…. which reminds me of Josephus and his stories. (Drawing Lots at Yodafat)
Talk about deception…..this is insanity!
So why should we not wrest with the scriptures
as Peter suggested?
I think it would be stupid not to wrest after reading the Synoptic Gospels, at least if you bother to compare them to the Gospel of John!!!!!!
As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.
But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
In the Garden of Gethsemane when Jesus Christ was arrested
Judas does not kiss Jesus Christ in the gospel of John!
Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.
All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.
Greet one another with an holy kiss.
Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
