Noah's Flood and The Bloody Clash of the Titans

Ecclesiastes 1:9
(CEV)  Everything that happens has happened before; nothing is new, nothing under the sun.
(ESV+)  R12What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.

Genesis 6:4

(ESV; Word-For-Word; Best) The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.

(GW; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat) The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, as well as later, when the sons of God slept with the daughters of other humans and had children by them. These children were famous long ago.

(KJV; Word-For-Word; Good) There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

(NKJV; Word-For-Word; Better) There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.


Clash of The Titans

 

 "They seek nothing but death and destruction in their path. They have committed abominations and corrupted everything around them from the knowledge they received from their fathers. They have made weapons to kill. They mixed and confused creatures of different kinds...lions and horses that can fly, men with heads of animals such as bull and birds...half-beast and half-man, mutants as they themselves...such corruption of the blood and abominations of the earth!



God had enough of the wickedness. Their fathers were forced to watch their children mutilate and kill each other, so that no angel will try to do what they had done. And the rest of them and all their corruption wiped-out from the face of the earth...except the wives who carried their genes even after the great flood. Thus the Canaanites, the Amorites, and such other remnants of corruption."


Leviticus 16:8
(CEV; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  where I will show you which goat will be sacrificed to me and which one will be sent into the desert to the demon Azazel.
(ESV+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  And Aaron shall cast lots over the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for R13Azazel.N1
(GW<; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  Then Aaron must throw lots for the two goats. One lot will be for the LORD and the other for Azazel. (KJVA; Word-For-Word; Good)  And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.
(NASB+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  "AaronH175 shall castH5414 lotsH1486 for the twoH8147 goatsH8163b, oneH259 lotH1486 for the LORDH3068 and the otherH259 lotH1486 for the N1scapegoatH5799.
(NKJV; Word-For-Word; Better)  Then Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats: one lot for the LORD and the other lot for the scapegoat.

The adversary will do its best to pollute the DNA of man again so that the Messiah can never come again to finally judge them on the Judgement Day. It mixed by confusing the truth (deception) that caused every man to his death. It tried to prevent our inheritance from being returned back to us by polluting our DNA before, and when that failed because the Messiah was born from a perfect (tamiym) lineage, even up to the desperate attempt to influence the Messiah. Have faith, for:

This article will focus on the validity of the flood.

First of all, let’s start with the science of it all. Have you ever wondered how on earth someone like Methuselah could live to be 969 years old, or Noah to 950, and how only the best of those living today barely break 100? The answer is simple. Noah's flood. The earth is currently tilted at 23.5 degrees and is still in a slight wobble, telling us that something large hit it in the past and knocked it off its axis. If Yahweh created the earth at a perfect 0° angle, then there would be virtually no seasons and the entire earth would feel more like the area around the equator. Also, at that time, the bible says that there were seven atmospheres. Today there are only six. Many scientists believe that that seventh atmosphere was some sort of a moisture layer, perhaps colloidal ice suspended above the earth. If this is accurate, then that seventh layer would have blocked out virtually all UV light and the deadly radiation that causes all of creation to age more quickly. This added layer would have almost doubled the atmospheric pressure on the earth causing the blood of all living things to have extreme levels of oxygen.


The air we breathe today has much lower oxygen content and at a much lower pressure.

Scientists say these elevated levels could allow a human to run 200 miles nonstop with ease and would explain how a Tyrannosaurus Rex could breathe with such small nostril capacity. At today's oxygen levels, a T-Rex would never be able to get enough oxygen through his nasal cavity to be able to breathe. This higher oxygen level coupled with the doubling of atmospheric pressure as well as other components would have allowed everything on earth to grow larger, even to Jurassic levels, and would have allowed the humans who were created then to live forever.

After the flood, we immediately see ages cut in half, and they continue to fall rapidly to where they are today due to the radical change in atmosphere and radiation exposures.

Putting all this together, one of the most prevalent theories out there is that there was a giant comet that broke through the suspended ice canopy, collapsing it and causing it to rain everywhere for the first time. The comet hit the earth with such force that it knocked it to its current axis and cracked the ground open, forcing the waters of the deep to shoot 20 miles into the atmosphere, adding to the drenching rain. The extra water on the surface of the earth created such weight over the thin parts of the crust that they collapsed five months in.

The bible records that it was 150 days before the water of Noah’s flood decreased and the water that had been supporting the crust from underneath was now on top. This collapse was what created the oceanic basins we see today.


That's why the "millions of years" theory doesn't add up.

The immediate formation of these large bowls would have sucked the water into them at such a high rate that we would have seen signs of water erosion at extreme levels all over the world. And that is, in fact, what happened. The Grand Canyon was not formed over millions of years.

With as much water as was running through the deserts it would have been formed in a matter of weeks. The Bad Lands, which was clearly formed by water, would have been formed in the same time period. The extreme water levels would explain virtually every natural phenomenon on earth.

They say stalactites and stalagmites take thousands or millions of years to create, but that’s based on current drip rates of calcium and mineral deposits. If there were thousands of feet of water over the earth, not only would the caverns themselves have been carved out in a short period of time, but the water pressure on the surface would have forced minerals through the earth and into the caverns at a much higher rate, creating incredible rock formations in less than a hundred years. We know for sure that this is possible as there has been documented evidence of large stalactites found in old basements of buildings less than a hundred years old.

Not only would the flood explain just about everything we find on this earth, it would also explain why we have such massive oil deposits in the Gulf of Mexico. The receding water would have caused all of this dead organic material to be floating around in massive quantities. It would have settled at one time into expansive piles and then all the mud and silt that was carved out of the land would have piled on top of it and created the necessary pressure to create some of the oil deposits we see today.

The evidence for a worldwide flood is so overwhelming it’s almost incredible that there are any people who deny it. Whether it be the fact that the oldest desert on earth just so happens to be about 4400 years old, the fact that there are fully fossilized trees that have been found going through almost all the rock strata due to the fact that they were buried alive, or the fact that almost every single culture and people group on every continent has a legend of a flood, the flood of 4400 years ago shows its mark no matter where you turn on this globe.


Even NASA has satellite pictures of the ark that is still resting on Mt. Ararat.

The truth of this global catastrophe is that it was not only a real historical marker that changed the course of the earth, it is also THE black eye on the theory of evolution.

Evolution demands millions and millions of years for things to be created and evolve. And if there was a global flood that destroyed everything and what we see today is only about 4400 years old, that lets the air out of that drastically over-inflated balloon.


Job 1:6
(CEV; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  One day, when the angels had gathered around the LORD, and Satan was there with them,
(ESV+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  Now there was a day when R11the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and R12SatanN1 also came among them.
(GW; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  One day when the sons of God came to stand in front of the LORD, Satan the Accuser came along with them.
(KJVA; Word-For-Word; Good)  Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
(NASB+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  R1Now there was a dayH3117 when the R2sonsH1121 of GodH430 cameH935 to presentH3320 themselves beforeH5921 the LORDH3068, and N1SatanH7854 alsoH1571 cameH935 amongH8432 them.
(NKJV; Word-For-Word; Better)  Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.

At the end of the day, Noah’s flood teaches us many lessons, but one major one: God has a standard of living that He requires all flesh to submit to. That standard of living brings blessings and curses: blessings if one keeps it and curses if one does not. In the days of Noah, the people of the earth were breaking God’s instructions and were living self-centered lives focused only on themselves and what pleased them. On the other hand, Noah “pleased God” by doing what pleased Him, and God chose to save him and his family because of it. There can be no wonder, then, why the apostle John said in 1 John 2:3, “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him.” And then in chapter 5, verses 2-3 say, “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments and His commandments are not burdensome.” Noah understood the same thing that John did: loving God was connected to obeying Him. James said it this way: “Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works” (James 2:18). Just like human relationships, loving God is and always has been a lifestyle of proving our love by what we do.

Unfortunately, because we humans do not learn from our past mistakes, the bible says in Mathew 24 that God will once again judge the earth just like he did in the days of Noah. Except this time it will not be by water, but by fire.


1 Thessalonians 5:2
(CEV; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  You surely know that the Lord's return will be as a thief coming at night.
(ESV+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  For you yourselves are fully aware that R25the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
(GW; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  You know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
(KJVA; Word-For-Word; Good)  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
(NASB+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  For you yourselvesG846 knowG3609a fullG199 wellG199 that R1the dayG2250 of the LordG2962 N1will comeG2064 R2justG5613 likeG5613 a thiefG2812 in the nightG3571.
(NKJV; Word-For-Word; Better)  For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.

It says that the Son of Man will come upon all mankind as suddenly as the flood did. People will be eating and drinking and carrying on and only those who are walking in the Light will see Him coming. For those who are walking in darkness, it will be as a thief in the night (1 Thessalonians 5).

Please bear in mind that these words are not my own. I am in no means a good man more so clean...most likely you are way better than I am. I too carry the chains of my sin, and is doing what I can to action the process of forgiving others, and thus to be forgiven myself. Truly, there are kind and selfless people in this world who painstakingly took most of their time and effort to learn and piece these together, in order to give sense and clarity to these topics that seemed impossible and illogical to do.

The "Parable of the Unjust Steward" and the perfect example of how others "add to and remove from" this teaching.

The problem is that when we read the Bible, we assume our own cultural perspectives onto the text, which will often cause serious problems with the interpretation of that text. If you want to interpret the text correctly, you must read it from the perspective of the peoples who lived there in that time.

"The problem is that when we read the Bible, we assume our own cultural perspectives onto the text, which will often cause serious problems with the interpretation of that text."

 
And he said also unto the disciples: "There was a certain rich man, who had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he was wasting his goods. And he called him, and said unto him: 'What is this that I hear of thee? Render the account of thy stewardship; for you can no longer be steward.' And the steward said within himself: 'What shall I do, seeing that my lord takes away the stewardship from me? I have no strength to dig; to beg I am ashamed. I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.' And calling to him each one of his lord's debtors, he said to the first: 'How much do you owe unto my lord?' And he said: 'A hundred measures of oil.' And he said unto him: 'Take thy bond, and sit down quickly and write fifty.' Then said he to another: 'And how much do you owe?' And he said: 'A hundred measures of wheat.' He said to him: 'Take your bond, and write fourscore.' And his lord commended the unrighteous steward because he had done wisely: for the sons of this world are for their own generation wiser than the sons of the light."

"At first glance we might conclude that the steward was cheating his master by reducing the money owed by his master's debtors. But if this were true, why would the master commend him?"


"In our culture, an employee, such as a manager, keeps track of the moneys owed to his employer by his customers and in return, the employer pays the manager a wage. If that manager reduced the bills that his employer's customers owed to his employer, and was caught, he would most likely be fired and may even find himself in jail. Is Jesus commending this behavior? Not at all."

"The problem is that when we read the Bible, we assume our own cultural perspectives onto the text, which will often cause serious problems with the interpretation of that text."


"In the first century, the master (the employer) did not pay the steward (the employee) a wage. Instead, a steward made his money by adding his fees onto the bills of his master's debtors (the customers). When the debtor receives the bill from the steward, he does not know what amount on the bill belongs to the master and what amount belonged to the steward, only the steward would know. When the debtors would pay their bill to the steward, the steward would pocket his portion of the bill and then forward the remaining money to his master."

"As this steward is called 'unrighteous,' we can assume that he was placing an extraordinary high amount on the bills for his fee, in order to make large amounts of money, at the expense of his master and his master's debtors. However, when he found out he was going to be fired, he took the debtors bills and reduced, or eliminated, the amount owed to him. Thereby currying favor with these debtors in the hopes that one of them may hire him due to his perceived 'generosity.'"

"The 'parable' of this parable is; if you want to interpret the text correctly, you must read it from the perspective of the peoples who lived there in that time."


If you check Wikipedia about the attempts to "add to and remove from" this teaching of Jesus, you will understand how context is everything in the Scriptures! LOL!

Please bear in mind that these words are not my own. I am in no means a good man more so clean...most likely you are way better than I am. I too carry the chains of my sin, and is doing what I can to action the process of forgiving others, and thus to be forgiven myself. Truly, there are kind and selfless people in this world who painstakingly took most of their time and effort to learn and piece these together, in order to give sense and clarity to these topics that seemed impossible and illogical to do.

How to Forgive? And How to be Forgiven by God? What is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8? Let the Scriptures Explain the Scriptures In Context. Receive the message with great eagerness and examine the Scriptures.



"Understand that people who deal with you in a negative way are only carrying their baggage...and they are more than willing to offload that baggage to anyone else.

People who have nothing but love in their family and within themselves can give nothing else but smile and positive emotions to others. Positive emotions are not burdensome. (1 John 5:1-3)

As one has said 'it is much less about you and much more about them, no matter how they make it otherwise'.

Always look at the fruit of their walk: it will show what kind of tree they are." (Matthew 7:15-20)

 

Why are you taught to "forgive and forget" by the doctrines and traditions of men (Matthew 15:1-9), yet you feel deep within you that you are only lying to yourself (James 1:19-27)?

 

Ever wonder why you are not able to sleep well, or you keep getting reminded of the emotion involved, or you feel an unquenchable hatred, or you even take the effort to forget or suppress the memories of someone who did something wrong to you? 

 

Here's why:


Forgiving is not forgetting nor letting go . Forgiving is hoping (Luke 17:3-4) [8].

Forgiving is "to give" the chance for the trespasser to pay (Galatians 6:1-10).

God Almighty says He is not going to forgive any man who does not repent (Proverbs 11:21). Jesus did not ask His Father to "forgive them for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34) and take the consequences away. We've all been taught by doctrines and traditions of men that forgiveness is removing the consequence, removing all of the debt. In your heart you know that can never be the case: imagine if you are commanded to forgive and forget someone who killed the person you most loved, by letting time pass and not giving any consequence to the killer.

This is mocking God Almighty because he never said to take the consequences away, to remove all the debt. God Almighty is not mocked (Galatians 6:7). We have misunderstood forgiveness in a way that mocks God Almighty's commandments. Because if we mock God Almighty, we will never accept and do what "love your enemy" (Matthew 5:44) means in it's true context.

The trespasser must repay to be forgiven. In the old economic times this is even defined as "four times" (Luke 19:8) or even "five times" (Exodus 22:1) in some cases. The repayment can be derived in accordance to the context [12] and with other laws of God.

Remember that the greatest essence of repayment is to "restore" from what has been trespassed…to put things where they were, in a state where they were, before the trespass (Galatians 6:1-10).

"Restore" means not to bring back what cannot be returned, but to bring back what can be returned, and to "bring back" the state of emotion: the lack of anger, the lack of sorrow, the lack of hatred that was being experienced before the trespass.

For murder, this is also the reason why the person must not be put to death (Exodus 20:13). He must live his remaining life in bondage and reflection of what he took from someone. Killing that person will not give him the chance to be forgiven. (Honestly, I disagreed with this because I know it is most "convenient" to take another life in exchange for the loved one you lost. Coming from a military family this is how I saw things needed to be set straight.)

But remember that you can make sure the person feels your pain...I am not talking about barbaric acts nor inflicting physical or psychological pain such as cursing, being the Accuser, or any hurtful words. I am talking about reaching into his heart. Every man has the spirit within himself, and helping the spirit to "turn his heart from stone back into flesh" (Ezekiel 36:26) is an act of love because you are saving him from himself (Deuteronomy 22:1-4).

Hurting his soul by physical or psychological pain will only breed hatred itself. Save his spirit and you save yours...you will both be healed of the pain.

Remember: no amount of physical nor psychological pain, essentially hurting his soul, will give you long-term satisfaction. You will be haunted by your works. You will never be forgiven [9].

This, contrary to social belief, is forgiving because he is repaying your pain with four times or five times to his pain (Exodus 22:1). Again, this is not physical nor psychological pain you caused, this is the pain caused by turning his heart back into flesh (Ezekiel 36:26). Lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:1-12), examine the scriptures (Acts 17:10-11), don't let others judge you by following the scriptures, and let the scriptures explain the scriptures in context [12].

Killing robs you and him of the process of forgiveness. Think about it. And this is why it's also the law not to kill (Exodus 20:13). Giving the hope, the opportunity, for your trespasser to be forgiven is to show love (Galatians 6:1-10). Giving hope requires the effort of the trespassed to demand repayment from the trespasser in order to be forgiven. Thus, the effort is obeying the law of loving your enemy.

Yes, it is the law, that unfortunately the rabbis of the first century misunderstood because of their context, their predicament during those times.

The law was never about "love your neighbor, hate your enemy"[1] that's why Jesus corrected them from the Law. Jesus even have to clarify what Exodus 21:24 means [2]. Jesus even made contrasts regarding different treatments of damages that are permanent [3] and non-permanent [4], because the rabbis took this out of context to their advantage. The rabbis impose man's thirst for revenge by "RETRIBUTION" instead of the original Biblical context seeking the restorative process of "RECONCILIATION". The rabbis promote revenge and barbarism, in effect implying that God is unkind, vengeful, and quick to anger, of which is so much remote from the truth! (Exodus 34:6)

There are people today who are no different from these rabbis who only loves self-righteousness [5], who loves to bully and show their shrewdness to condescend [6], who loves to maximize what they can get at the expense of their brother being left by the road [7]. There are people who quote the Bible out of context just to advance their motives for retribution. If you can only fathom the depth of kindness and patience of God!

If you don't forgive (give the chance to repay you and restore things), then you will also not be forgiven. Only when you forgive that you will be forgiven (Matthew 6:14-15). This is the true meaning of forgiving…because you are at peace deep within you, and you will not be visited with emotional memories of the trespass…because everything was put into balance and restored by love. (Proverbs 24:17-18)

If the trespasser does not take the chance to be forgiven, then he faces an even worse fate before the first death (curses) and after the first death (second death) [10].

The greatest curse you have in your life is the blessing you missed. (Proverbs 3:13-35)

If you do not forgive, you put the spirit of the man into a greater suffering in the afterlife, because his trespass has not been repaid in his lifetime. Because of this you will also not be forgiven in your lifetime (Matthew 6:14-15) if you never took the opportunity to start the process of forgiving, no matter how painful the effort is.

NO ONE can be saved by following the law (works without faith). Desiring to follow the law (faith shown in the works) is the result of being saved. Understand the difference. (James 2:14-26)

God seeks what's in your heart and will judge you accordingly. (Jeremiah 17:10)

In essence, the law is all about love, the ten commandments are all about love. In fact, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 is the direct essence of The Ten Commandments, the process of truly forgiving within your heart, and a glimpse of the end of times. Love your God (commandments 1 to 4) and love your "neighbor" [11] (commandments 5 to 10).


Notes:


[1] Matthew 5:43-48 about the Oral Law and the doctrines and traditions of men.

[2] Exodus 21:24: "eye for(תַּחַת; tachat; context: 'to serve') eye and tooth for tooth", correctly translated as "eye to serve/humble to another [blinded] eye and tooth to serve/humble to another [lost] tooth"...in essence: to reconcile.

[3] E.g., eye or tooth which requires reconciliation.

[4] E.g., slap on a cheek in Luke 6:29 which deserves nothing else but love.

[5] See comments about dividing topics and watch how the devil works to promote self-righteousness especially at the guise of anonymity and impersonality of the Internet.

[6] Watch the serious cases of bullying in offices that are being copied by their children and brought into schools.

[7] The current legal system is mostly about retribution and money-making.

[8] Luke 17:3-4 context: repentance is the process of "going back" to God's Laws. Thus, the seven times in a day is not a deception of the sinner, but rather his works to restore from his transgressions of the Law. By his works you will know that he has truly repented (see James 2:14-18 on the lack of works being dead). The Greek translation of the word "repentance" does not put emphasis on "works" but rather only on "meaningless words without action".

[9] Matthew 12:30-32. The Holy Spirit is the living Word of God Almighty...He literally mentioned to the rabbis that they will never be forgiven for attacking His works (אִמְרָה; memrah; context: helper, or personification of the Word)! The Spirit is the living man...He literally mentioned the rabbis lead men astray by adding and removing from the Laws and thus also for this reason they will never be forgiven! Understand the difference between the spiritual and the physical, which Jesus differentiates here if you carefully study the original Bible while setting aside our Graeco-Roman mindset.

It is amazing if you can understand the original Bible as everything makes perfect correlation, perfect logic, perfect context...the Law is perfect! (Psalm 19:7)

[10] Revelation 20:6 the eternal death (second death) differentiated to death by bloodline curse from Adam and Eve (first death).

[11] The Bible in context refers to "neighbor" or "brother" as "someone else other than yourself".

[12] "A major mistake that people make when interpreting the Bible is that they have no context. While pastors and teachers are often heard saying that you need to interpret the Bible based on context, what they are usually referring to is reading the passage in context with the passages before and after the passage in question. While this is important, it is only a small part of the meaning of "context." In order to properly interpret any passage in the Bible you have to understand its meaning based on the context of the authors culture and perspectives."

What Is The Fruit?

 

 


Fruits of their works in this world. Fruits of their thoughts and beliefs. Fruits of their families and bloodline.

They think they are doing good for others, but what is the real fruit? Is the fruit delightful to the eyes of God Almighty (obedience to His Laws), or is it a sacrificial offering to the gods of men (worship of MONEY, in pursuit of FAME, thirst for POWER)?



Who Am I?

  


We will worship the God of the twelve tribes. (Joshua 24:15)
Galatians 3:28
Romans 10:12-13
Romans 9:6
The story of Ruth the gentile and the lineage of Jesus.

I am from the Northern tribe, and unlike the Southern tribe (the tribe of Judah/Yehuda/Jews), we did not come back and became scattered in the four corners of the world (Gen 49:28-33). I am the worse of the sinners, yet you have made me found the true you, you have revealed yourself to me! Still I ask why you made me see the glory of your light (Exodus 16:10)? Am I worthy in spite of the deeds I have done and continue to do? In my heart of stone (Ezekiel 11:14-25) I do not deserve such grace!
I will observe your appointed times (מועד; Leviticus 23:1-44; Genesis 1:14) and obey all your commandments (Leviticus 26:1-13), not because I seek salvation from my sins, but because your grace seeks me to follow you (1 John 5:1-5). I understand that we are saved not by our obedience, but by grace we are caused to obey you (Ephesians 2:1-10). Help me release myself from the chains of my sins (Romans 8:18-30)! Help me to not be tempted anymore by the whore of this world (Deuteronomy 31:16-18)! I will let your children know the whore of this world, I will reveal to them the gods of men (Matthew 7:13). Please help me to do what I can, so that no more curse (Exodus 20:5-6) will be added to your children's children coming from me and my forefathers.



Israel - not only of nation of the tribe of Judah/Yehuda/Jews, but of the tribes of Israel.

One New Man - Northern and Southern tribes, once broken into two captivities, will be joined once again.










Is Israel the One Church?

Are the seven churches actually churches or an "assembly" within the one church separated by their acts and their accompanying judgements? What are the twelve tribes of Israel? Does the twelve tribes include gentiles at the foot of Mount Sinai? Was it ever about the bloodline, or is it all about coming back similar to the tribe of Judah?










Is It Burdensome?











FAITH (BELIEVING, LEARNING, PRAISING) WITHOUT WORKS (LOVE, MERCY, OBEDIENCE) IS DEAD. (James 2:14-26; Matthew 7:15-20)

Love

Restoring your neighbor from sin, covering his nakedness for him to heal (Galatians 6:1-10). This world ignore, gossip, and bully a man fallen by the road (Deuteronomy 22:1-4). Do not be a friend of this world (James 4:4).

Mercy

Healing your enemy's wound, blessing him, in spite of what he does to you (Luke 6:27-36). Saving him from self-righteousness (Mark 7:1-13), saving him from being a friend of this world (James 4:4), saving him from adultery (Jeremiah 3:6-10)…yet be careful not to be ensnared yourself (Deuteronomy 12:29-32).

Obedience

Loving God Almighty and loving your neighbor are the greatest commandments of all (Matthew 22:34–40 / Mark 12:28–34). Follow all the commandments and observe weightier matters (Matthew 23:1-36) of the Law. Observe the appointed times (Leviticus 23:1-44; Genesis 1:14) so He will not come to you like a thief in the night (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11).


Blessed are the ones who come to Him not only in times of struggles and hardships but most especially in times of blessings and abundance! (Proverbs 28:1-28, James 4:1-12, Psalm 66:18, Isaiah 59:1-13, John 9:31, Proverbs 1:20-33; Proverbs 6:20-35, Psalm 119:105, Proverbs 12:1-28, James 1:2-18, Psalm 1:1-6, Psalm 23:1-6, 1 John 5:18, 2 Corinthians 9:8)

For whatever you have asked He has already given to you (Mark 11:20-25), and your struggles and hardships are not of Him (Job 1:1 - Job 42:17). Blessed is the rich man who found God and turned his faith into works (Matthew 25:14-30; Matthew 5:8 and the pure rich man of Luke 19:1-27; the sad rich man of Luke 18:18-30).

Disclaimer: I am no holy man. In fact I am a worse sinner just like most. I'm just someone looking for forgiveness for my sins that will be accepted by God and in accordance with his laws. The matter for "just forgiving and forgetting" did not make sense to most of the afflicted because forgiveness is clearly defined as to undertake the process of "loving" in accordance with the laws of God.

If you don't really know Ishtar and Nimrod, then you don't know "confusion by mixing"...you don't know whose road you are walking. You don't know if you are wicked or not.






Did you know that the Golden Calf/Bull is NOT representing a false god? The Israelites thought that Moses had gone and died, and that they have no one who can shield them from the "glory" of God Almighty, and they feared they have lost their MEDIATOR to God Almighty.


Since God Almighty is represented as a BULL, they created a MEDIUM that they think (they learned from Egypt's idolatry practices being "medium" to the false gods themselves) will allow them to worship God Almighty, while not being destroyed by God Almighty's "presence". God Almighty hated this because they were commanded not to bring anything out of Egypt...and you know what happened next.

Do you have a MEDIUM (religious authority/authorities) that is covering in between you and God Almighty other than Moses, and thereafter Jesus the Messiah (1 Corinthians 11:3)? 

(Please study the context of Paul otherwise YOU WILL DEFINITELY MISUNDERSTAND these verses below on Head Coverings. Lean not on your own understanding.)

Sun God Worship: Romans 1:24-25


The Adversary has taken advantage of our biblical ignorance of love: Christians are persuaded that proclaiming and obeying God’s commands is not “love” at all but is instead “legalism.” Instead we are sometimes told we should focus on "grace" and His love for us. They are saying that we should not focus on loving God but instead, focus on being loved by God. If you are married, imagine how your spouse would react to that. (Romans 6:15-23)
 


Christianity started in the Middle East as a fellowship; it moved to Greece, and became a philosophy (our Bible was translated mostly from Greek as best as possible yet approximate, while missing most of the context...add to that the fact that many intentionally and unintentionally put it out of context); it moved to Italy, and became an institution; it moved to Europe, and became a culture; it came to America, and became an enterprise.

An enterprise. That's a business (collecting money generally to prosper the business and its businessmen). A business? But isn't it supposed to "constitute but one body"?

When a body becomes a business, isn't that a prostitute? Isn't that being a part of the "great whore that sits upon many waters"?
Matthew 24:5

THE ARK OF THE COVENANT MAY NOT BE REVEALED AGAIN FROM THE HANDS OF A BELIEVER (Hebrews 3:18-19)
When we believe in the Word of God (faith), then the result is that we DO what we believe. When we do not believe in the Word of God (or do not have faith), then the result is that we DISOBEY the Word of God.
 
The World Is Changing

Many will claim that Jesus is the savior, and will teach using His name, yet they are like the adversary who tells a thousand truths just to make their followers believe a single lie.

We need to understand the true context of Matthew 24:5 in line with the false prophets of Deuteronomy 13 and their blind, non-testing, euphoria-driven followers in 2 Timothy 4:3. Remember: if you think death of the soul (living body) is the worst, imagine losing your inheritance again and instead being destroyed by the flaming sword, the second death (your unique signature, your spirit…only the one who created it can destroy it.).

Many will donate their money to cover for their nakedness (Revelation 3:14-22). Many will donate their time to cover for their shame, to cover for what's happening within them, to cover what is happening in their family
(Psalm 83:1-18). All these works are not from the heart (Colossians 3:18-25).

Many will say on the day of judgement, "did we not prophesy in God's name and in Jesus name drive out demons and in Jesus name performed many miracles?" Jesus will tell them plainly, "I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers! [original meaning: 'workers who disobey the laws of God']".
 

2 Thessalonians 2:4
(CEV; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  He will brag and oppose everything that is holy or sacred. He will even sit in God's temple and claim to be God.
(ESV+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, R11proclaiming himself to be God.
(GW; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  He opposes every so-called god or anything that is worshiped and places himself above them, sitting in God's temple and claiming to be God.

(NKJV; Word-For-Word; Better)  who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

People will be deceived that they are following the Messiah because he speaks of the Bible and does miraculous acts and prophecies, when in fact they are following the beast, just because they didn't inspect its FRUIT (the effect of their works, both within them and among others). If the Elect could be deceived, if it were possible, how much more a self-righteous or a humble man? The "temple" will not necessarily be made of rocks.

Look at the FRUIT of their faith, and you will know if they are following the beast.


Many false prophets will say "look what God is doing through me" or "look what god is doing through this religion - that I lead by the way" all while being masters of false humility. They may never say these words but their actions shout it from the mountains. In the last days men will have a form of godliness but denying its power. (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

"As our gifts to God are meant to please Him not us, ask this: is your service to God pleasing you (euphoria), or Him? What actually please Him? Does he consider earthly things as gifts of any value to Him, when the man giving the earthly gift does not follow His laws? Nothing will please Him more than to be able to say to you 'well done, good and faithful servant!' because you follow His laws."



Mark 12:31
(CEV; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  The second most important commandment says: 'Love others as much as you love yourself.' No other commandment is more important than these."

(GW; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  The second most important commandment is this: 'Love your neighbor as you love yourself.' No other commandment is greater than these."
(KJVA; Word-For-Word; Good)  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

(NKJV; Word-For-Word; Better)  And the second, like it, is this: 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' There is no other commandment greater than these."

Don't say you love God when you despise your wife. Don't say you love God when you hate your neighbor.  Don't say you love God when you rebuke someone (πλησίον). Don't say you love God when you hate yourself. (Mark 12:28-34)





1 Corinthians 10:1-14. Sowing "confusion by mixing" the traditions of men. Proclaiming to have testimonies of Jesus while denying the Word of His Father.

You distance and separate yourselves, and wash your hands to make yourselves look clean (Matthew 15:1-9), while leaving your brother astray and suffering by the road (Deuteronomy 22:1-4). You yourselves even "judged and executed" your brother because they are unprofitable, yet you still have brought with you things from the whore of this world that God commanded you to leave. (Leviticus 18:1-30)

Putting the Law of God out of context to justify the seed of the serpent (anything that is not in the context of the Scriptures; serpent's seed is the anti-Christ as Christ is the Word of God...this is not a single being or a group of people, but the actions of men). Adding to and removing from the Word of God. (Genesis 3:1-24)

Why can't you just follow exactly what was written. Why do you put your own interpretations when the Scripture already interprets the Scripture. Why create a forged version of the Scriptures (a fake scripture that you claim is "another testament" of Jesus and "inspired" by God yet "add to and removes from" the true prophets and the Law), a book man designed for their own motivations, a religion-centered book for your own veneration towards your belief and representation, just to add the doctrines and traditions of your men? (Galatians 1:6-9; Deuteronomy 4:2; Deuteronomy 12:29-32; Revelation 22:18-19; Proverbs 30:5-6; Matthew 24:24; Deuteronomy 13:1-10; Matthew 5:18; 2 Corinthians 11:14; Galatians 3:1-3)
You bend the Scriptures to make God look like He is barbaric, easy to anger, intends to make you suffer and struggle, and does not promote the true meaning of love! (2 Peter 1:16-21)
American Mormons Buy Russian 'Dead Souls' for Afterlife Polygamy. "The Mormon elite, who get their own planets after death, constitute about 15% of the congregation. I mean, those who have gone through all the necessary ceremonies. So, the elite intends to solve the problem with polygamy somehow. They couldn't find any other way to do that but to marry the dead." "Every church member is obliged to conduct personal and community genealogical research."



You reject God Almighty by adding to and removing from His Laws. You add your own superstitious objects, doctrines, and traditions in order to worship the gods of men. You remove from His Laws and replace it with another testament that contradicts the teachings of Jesus.




The "then-known world" does not include Americas and other countries far beyond the Middle East, so Jesus would not even mind to go to Americas for the fact that there are no known easily accessible civilizations beyond the then-known world. This in addition to the fact that it will be nearly impossible to go to those places in reasonable time, plus the fact that those places are unfamiliar to many, and visiting them will most likely lead to suffering and savage death. The "then-known world" before are where civilizations and, for the purposes of Jesus's visit, groups of civilized people were known to exist, who are also able to understand his teachings. Jesus spoke in Hebrew and He references things of Hebrew origin, not of the Septuagint or of any other languages. Understand the timeline of Jesus and where Jesus actually walked. The disciples of Jesus are the ones tasked to then go to the "four corners of the earth" (ends of the world). There is no known evidence in the Bible that the direct disciples of Jesus were able to go far beyond the "then-known world" before they were persecuted. Yet, the true disciples followed the words of Jesus because from then on to today, true disciples are able to reach the four corners of the Earth...true disciples who followed Jesus in proclaiming that both the Old Testament (there is no New Testament during the time of Jesus) and New Testament (testaments after the time of Jesus which also references the Old Testament) are all contextually applicable today.

"One man and one woman". "One bridegroom and one bride". That is God's model as mentioned everywhere in the Bible. His model is always this: He is the bridegroom and we are his bride. The bride is always referred to as "one nation", not "many among nations" nor "many nations". He only has one single bride. The other woman as referred in the Bible is the whore of this world.

Man's model: One bridegroom and multiple brides (or partners). This is the doctrine and tradition of man, the model of man. THERE IS NOT ONE INSTANCE OF POLYGAMY IN THE SCRIPTURE THAT LED TO A FRUITFUL AND BLESSED RESULT.

While polygamy is mentioned as practiced in the Old Testament, it resulted to generations of family feuds between nations ([Twelve Tribes of] Israel and
[Twelve Tribes of] Ishmael). Both blessings and curses pass through many generations...don't even think that if you got away with it, that you are not the result of your forefather's curse, and that your curse will not pass through your children. Remember how you lost your immortality and will be cursed to the first death.

There is a biological issue that arises with polygamy, and having multiple partners, that affects women. This issue causes "corruption" of the woman's biology. God loves his people and never intends pain and suffering, mental nor physical. The Law of God is love. Breaking the Law causes mental and physical "corruption". Sin is breaking the Law of God.


Furthermore, anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.



Paul's Warning
(Be aware that there are contexts here that you need to study first so you won't lead yourselves into false assumptions, such as original meaning of "confess". Paul is addressing specific people with specific situations.)





"I am the Alpha (א ; Aleph) and the Omega (ת : Tav). Know me by Psalm 119."


How do we love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind? If you asked someone at any typical church if they love God, chances are they would say “yes.” Compare this with James 4:4.

James 4:4
(CEV; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  You people aren't faithful to God! Don't you know that if you love the world, you are God's enemies? And if you decide to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God.
(ESV+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  R1You adulterous people!N1 Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? R2Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
(GW; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  You unfaithful people! Don't you know that love for this evil world is hatred toward God? Whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God.
(KJVA; Word-For-Word; Good)  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

(NKJV; Word-For-Word; Better)  Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.


Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. Thus, by their fruit, you will recognize them. (Matthew 7:15-20)




"If you love Me, keep My commandments." - ALL commandments. He didn't say "cherry-pick my commandments that are suitable for you and your church."

What would you think if your husband or your wife told you and everyone else that they loved you, but always ignored you or did whatever they wanted to do day after day without considering your wishes? What if they simply did whatever was right in their own eyes based on how they decided they should love you. You’d know they were either lying or that they don’t really know what the word “love” means.
(1 Corinthians 13:1-13)





Matthew 5:17
(CEV; Thought-For-Thought; Caveat)  Don't suppose that I came to do away with the Law and the Prophets. I did not come to do away with them, but to give them their full meaning.
(ESV+; Interlinear; Word-For-Word; Best)  R16“Do not think that I have come to abolish R17the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but R18to fulfill them.

(KJVA; Word-For-Word; Good)  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

(NKJV; Word-For-Word; Better)  "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets ('the true Prophets have already prophesied in the Scriptures'); I have not come to abolish them ('tell that they are wrong and are not relevant anymore') but to fully preach ('πληρόω') them ('until Jesus came, nobody knows how to correctly keep/fulfill the Law, so the priests tried to keep them as best as they could, yet in vain, because of their doctrines and traditions that made the Law difficult to keep'). For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth is no more, not an iota, not a dot, will be removed from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes ('uphold that it does not apply anymore in our present day') one of the least ('even the smallest part of the Law') of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever DOES them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness ('practicing/following the Law') exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees ('knows the Law to the dot, but does not practice nor follow completely'; Mark 7:1-13), you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."

Some actually praise God in their belief that God abolished His law. In reality, God defines His character and His own heart through the law that He gave us, yet some praise Him for abolishing it.



"I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished." (Matthew 5:17-20)

Study the story of Jezebel in the two books of Kings. She is the perfect example of self-righteousness.

Study the story of Rebekah and her two sons Jacob and Esau. The story is a proof of the troubles man gets into when they force their will ahead of the will of God Almighty. EVEN TODAY we are witnessing the effects on the bloodlines of these two peoples...wars of two nations because of birthright, because of family feud that started with these twins. (Genesis 25:19-34 then Genesis 27:1-46)


Fear God and keep his commandments. (1 John 5:3)

Please bear in mind that these words are not my own. I am in no means a good man more so clean...most likely you are way better than I am. I too carry the chains of my sin, and is doing what I can to action the process of forgiving others, and thus to be forgiven myself. Truly, there are kind and selfless people in this world who painstakingly took most of their time and effort to learn and piece these together, in order to give sense and clarity to these topics that seemed impossible and illogical to do.
