  • Alexander in reply - in Reply on Matthew 26
    I very much wasn't being critical of Jesus, but of how people precieve him. This was very much rhetorical. My point being that he didn't do the thing people often claim, it goes against his character. The last supper couldn't have been the passover Seder. Jesus was the Passover, he would have died on the day before The Festival of Unleavened Bread. God often gives exception to rules. We're not a religion of legalism, but he does set things in place as guidelines. If you're looking for scripture on healing on the Sabbath, that's Leviticus 18:5 live by the law (meaning don't die by it). Ez 20 something as well. Preservation of life, even animal life (donkey in the ditch) is sacred. My point was also that in a Jewish city Judas couldn't buy if he wanted to, the rabbis we're ruthless on Sabbath breakers. There's also the issue of Deuteronomy 13, if a prophet says anything contrary to Moses they are not a prophet of God. Leviticus 18 covers healing on Sabbath, and the law isn't a legalistic barrier of absolutes, but if Jesus taught against certain things he would be suspect. I believe with every fiber of my being that he is Messiah, Lord, redeemer, restitution, and equal sacrefice. My point isn't to actually ask, but to get people to look into the word. The main reason I even responded to this is because you seemed strong in scripture and I didn't want you thinking less of me because of a misunderstanding. But unfortunately, I apparently am not as strong in teaching as I would like or Paul would require.

    Because these are the last days, we who love God are all being tested and burdened to the very limit. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. You have his life in you. That life will never fail you . it's not an easy fix. The days are evil. Always stay in the light, and be a light to others. Peace

    Judy May,

    Try to be not discouraged by people looking to keep you down.

    Go forward boldly with the Lord Jesus Christ as your covering.

    May God bless you in doing what God has called you to do.

    He will show you the way.

    He said, many ravenous wolves will come among you, even now. He also said even now there are many anti-Christs. Paul was concerned for his brothers and sisters, but more for God's sake. He knew things were going to get really bad. in 70, the siege of Jerusalem, 100-300 the age of martyrs. 330-600 the age of the emperor's control on the church. If you were a follower of anything deemed "Jewish like" that includes praying, tithing to your pastor and not the empire, keeping Sabbath on a day not set by the Romans, refusing to fight in expansionist wars, reading the old testament, etc... you could be put to death, and it happened often. Then came 600-700, the age of the schism. People know about Greece and Rome, orthodox vs catholic, but they don't know about Bulgaria and Maphyiastite. Bulgaria kept a 7th day sabbath and Kosher, Maphyiastite didn't believe in trinity or state control of the church. they were hunted as heretics. 700-900, the Muslim invasion of Europe and Rome, as well as the "heathen invasion of Rome proper". Then came 900-1000 vikings, then 1000-1400 Crusades, where the name of God was vilified even more. Then came the "renaissance" when they started saying, "well, God didn't mean that." Not to mention Dante's inferno and that heretical piece of garbage that was used to scare people away from hell and into "heaven". Then there was the age of discovery and the "evangelizing" of America. Again, God's name was vilified and tarnished by people claiming to love him. Then the reformation happened and a huge war that claimed a million Christians on both sides. Then the Cossacks eradicated the Jews and Gypsies from Russia in "God's name". Then WW1, then WW2. Christians have been through a lot, and a lot of it was because of wolves and anti-christs that rose up within the midst.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Jesus frequently healed people on Sabbath.

    He healed the Roman Centurions slave. He healed Gentiles & the Samaritan woman, plus everyone in her town.

    I don't think that we should be critical of anything Jesus did. He had his reasons.

    Now I have to go read all the center of the page (abc) reference columns again. All I am sure of, is that all of our questions will be answered when we get to Heaven.

    Let's not suffer loss of rewards at the Bema Seat Judgment of Christ; for teaching something that's contrary to what Jesus did.

    I'm thinking there's a scripture in the Old Testament that will shed some light. Must be Lamentations because I don't read that book enough.

    God puts stumbling blocks in our paths, so we will trip over them. This may be one of those. Let's keep studying.

    Andy you sure do like to promote Your website here in this forum along with blunt criticism to any who post within. Everything everyone says is wrong so why are you here? (Rhetoric) Why not put more focus on Your site and allow This forum to be what IT is. Maybe craigslist is a better marketing option. Your "36 year" spiel is over redundant. You are selling a book(skeptical in nature) and we understand what traffic to a website does.. For someone claiming so many website hits you sure are fishing awfully hard.

    Just allow this forum to be what it is and post your deception criticism within your site until your heart is content. All of your posts are clearly for self promotion. "We" "our" "us" over and over comment after comment.

    Those of us within this forum believe in using it with it's intended purpose. Okay

    You disagree, we understand. The only person who knows God's will is andy van den berg.

    Vincent Calvert,

    Do you know what God has in store for Judy May?

    Are you telling Judy May to keep silent concerning the word of God and not offer help or understanding to those that are confused or have never heard?

    Are you really that confident in your understanding of the word of God to be the judge of Judy?

    Why would it matter that Deborah was a Jew?

    Does a prophet not teach?

    Therefore, does a prophetess not have the same ability to teach?

    If a woman does not have a husband and lives alone, who is the head of her household?

    If you are only speaking "expressly of Christian matters," then what do you do with Acts 2:17 or Acts 21:8-9?

    How do you explain Luke 2:36 or 1 Corinthians 11:5?

    Do "sons AND daughters" not prophesy in the end times?
  • Alexander BarMikiel - in Reply on Matthew 28
    I'll give you one better, why don't people follow his commandment to "call none father except our father in heaven?" Or one better still, why was the martyr Antipas( Revelation 2) called that? his name literally means anti-pater, or father. But he was very obviously godly. So what father was he being "anti" to? Then, when did Pastors start being called Father's? We are called to be Judges, and that isn't only as in law judges, but like the book. In Judges they're called Deliverers of the people. But there's an issue with it, in Judges things get really bad really quick. Judges is summed up by the last verse, "in those days there was no king in Israel, every man did what was right in their own eyes." Many Christians have no king, so they do what is right in their own eyes. So, that is the answer to your question.
  • Alexander BarMikiel on Matthew 27:25
    So question to get people thinking. "My God, My God why have you forsaken me"? Did God actually forsake Jesus? If so, does that make God a liar? Because He says in Deuteronomy 31:6 "...the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." He even repeats it in Hebrews 13:5. So does that mean that God loves us more than Jesus? His perfect son? The son who delighted in him? Well Psalms 147:11 disagrees with that. "the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love." So why did he forsake him? Is God a liar? Did he change his mind? no and no! "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine..." 2 Tim 3:16 and Hebrews 13:8, "Same yesterday, today, and forever."

    So we have a problem, either the bible is wrong or we're wrong. The common argument to this is that, "God's wrath was so much, because sin was so bad." To which I reply, is God a god of wrath? or of Mercy? "The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love," Psalms 103:8. They say, well it was a long time, but time is nothing to God, "With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." 2 Pet 3:8. No, God wasn't so angry. There's something else here. When Jews memorized the bible, they didn't have verses, they memorized the first sentence in a chapter as it's name. And guess where that first sentence appears? Psalms 22, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Read the Psalm, whether Jesus said the whole psalm and it was recorded as just the title or not, doesn't matter, that is what he meant, and his disciples new it. This isn't a psalm of poor me, but of love, mercy and restitution! Jesus's last words were, "They will proclaim His righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!" HE IS PRAISING GOD! Not crying out! He just recited the prophesy of his death, bones out of joint, pierced hands, flogging to show bones! God didn't forsake Jesus, Jesus praised God!
    Even Old Testament people's married people of lighter or darker skin shades. Moses and Abraham did. Moses when he was soon to die, sent his wife back to her fathers home.

    Moses's sister Miriam, protested his wife's color. God gave her a dose of leprosy. He took it off later.

    I'm sure Joseph's wife, who was Egyptian may have had darker skin because of the brutal sun there.


    Be ye not unequally yoked together with UNBELIEVERS, for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light (GOD), with (SATAN) darkness?

    Comment: Clearly God does not want Believers to marry Unbelievers.

    All through the Old Testament (read in Joshua)... God told them to go in the Promised Land and run off or kill the idol worshippers. We see in Nehemiah, the Israelites sent their idol worshipping wives and the children away.

    What God cares about is Believers being prevented by the Unbelieving, to attend Church and Worship God; raise their children to believe in God too. Read through Deuteronomy: the blessings and the curses.

    NOTHING is said about race or color. You'd be wise to discover what prospective spouses believe. It is very difficult and naive to teach your kids: do as I say, not as you see me do. As soon as they're old enough, they'll do what they've learned in the home.

    God is only trying to save us from heartache and confused kids by going against that scripture.

    Unbelievers can be many things: mixed religions, mixed up morals, lax attitude about drugs, alcohol, yelling, physical or mental abuse to impose "obedience" on the Christian, refusal to pray at meals, etc.

    Our current culture has crossed over into something that is beyond God to fix. We know what is right; we just don't do it. He's going to let us reap the whirlwind.

    Repent means to change your mind and walk with God. Vote for chaos or vote for God. He'll get us through. I'm sure. Are you?

    Hope this clears it up? M.
  • Alexander BarMikiel - in Reply on Matthew 26
    (My rant is on what I meant, I apologize at its length) That is very much not what I was saying, I mean that the last supper couldn't have been Passover, Passover is at the beginning of the feast of unleavened bread, which is a Sabbath. Even if Judas could have gotten things on the Sabbath, what could they have prepared for if not the Seder. You're right about what you said, it's just not what I was implying was wrong. If Jesus was the Passover lamb he had to be killed at the same time all of the other lambs were being slaughtered for Passover. He arrived 10 days before slaughter, as was the law. He was without blemish as was the law. He was even the equal sacrifice, he was the only person in history born of God except Adam; Paul said that Jesus paid Adam's sin (ours as well) but he was, therefore, an equal sacrifice to Adam. He fulfilled hundreds of prophecies, came out of Egypt (salvation from Egypt), baptized at 30 (as was the law for priests), became the high priest (after Melchizedek), fulfilled all of Psalms 22 (no broke bone, pierced hands, out of joint, hanged on a tree, etc...), he restituted the gentiles to Israel, he hasn't wed the perfect virgin yet (that's Revelation 21 where he does that), but he has fulfilled every prophecy except a few to come. What I am saying is, if he did all of this, if he fulfilled all of these prophecies, fulfilled the festival of Sukkoth, fulfilled Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashana, EVEN Hanukkah! Why would he not die on the day when the Passover was supposed to die? It drives me crazy, he is a perfect God, why would he set up a festival literally about passing over sin (Egypt being bondage, bondage in sin specifically) and have him die on the WRONG DAY! I'm not even going to get into why people think it would be Sunday that he rose. I do apologize for the rant, it is completely not directed at you, but toward an idea that I believe has no basis in the bible but has its basis in a painter from the 1300's misinterpretation of it.
  • Prophesy on Judas Iscariot - in Reply on Matthew 26
    Jesus already knew what Judas Iscariot was going to do; but not his other disciples.

    There was an Old Testament prophesy about the event. Judas fulfilled it.

    Psalms 41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
  • Which Baptism Works on Matthew 24:9
    Even Jesus submitted to be baptized by John the Baptist. "So all righteousness would be fulfilled." It was the fulfillment of prophesy.

    Matthew Chapter 3

    13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

    14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

    15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

    16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

    17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

    In the book of Acts, people were still being baptized by the disciples in water to repentance.

    Even tho in John chapter 3, Jesus told Nicodemas he must be born again and baptized by the Holy Spirit.

    Water baptism was not forbidden by Jesus. I chose to be baptized publically, to show the cast out demons that I belonged to Jesus.

    Thank the Lord if you have never been oppressed by demons for meddling in the Occult: had one try to break your neck; restrain you so you cannot stand or speak; had one levitate your bed 6 ft off the floor; manifest to guests in other rooms , scaring them to pieces. Every single day, turn your paintings sideways. When you sit down in Church and the church prays corporately to cast the demons out of the building...the demons tell you that you "better get up and leave with them."

    I confessed my past to a whole Church and was set free from the oppression finally.

    If you don't know zip about spiritual warfare ; don't tell people it's heresy to be water baptized!! Few church's teach deliverance ministry. You sure don't teach it here. Be a disciple full bore.

    Don't email me either unless you need deliverance from Pharisee-ism. Thank you. Mishael

  • Alexander BarMikiel - in Reply on Matthew 27:63
    There's an issue with traditional teaching on this. Other than it doesn't hold up to the actual Koine Greek in some places, the traditional view is that he rose on Sunday, therefore we do sabbath Sunday. But first, that comes from Acts 2, "they gathered on the first day of the week" that is actually Sabbaton, they gathered on Sabbaton, or a "certain sabbath", not Sunday. Second, Jesus never says they are celebrating Passover, he is only telling them to prepare, if he was the Passover he had to die when the priests were killing the lambs for Passover, not after the feast. He died at Sunset what would be Wednesday night (for Jews, the next day starts at sunset), So he died Thursday (the same time they slaughter Passover lambs), was in the tomb at the same time as the Feast of Unleavened bread ( a sabbath), then Mary, Mary, and Martha went and got the oil and incense on Friday (when it wasn't a sabbath) and came to Jesus's tomb on Saturday, where they discovered him risen. This not only fits with Hebrew Scriptures, it also addresses the issue of if Jesus had sent Judas out on that night the disciples would have thought he was committing a sin by having him buy on the sabbath. There's no actual scriptural evidence he rose on Sunday, he would have arrived in Jerusalem the two weeks prior, as is custom. Also, the Passover lamb was supposed to be in the house 10 days, and that's 10 days before Wednesday, the day when Priests slay the lamb. If he had died Friday night, you're right, because it's Jewish, not Greek, night was the point of the new day, so he would have only been in the ground Saturday and Sunday, but he died Wednesday night, so that's Thursday, Friday, then Saturday.

    If it was the Passover Seder, why did they think Judas was on his way to buy for the feast? Also, how can Jesus be the Passover Seder if he was killed the day after the Seder. Meaning this has to be the day before. Food for thought.

    Regarding your views on Water Baptism it cannot save a person. Please read Hebrews 6:1,2. It was one of the rites of of the Jewish Religion (Numbers 19:7, Hebrews 9:10). Like circumcision, it was strictly an act of faith, and as Peter explains it is an a pledge of good conscience towards God.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    Repentance is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Revelation 12:9).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Revelation 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14; Luke 13:23).

    Comments about Isaiah 49, Isaiah 11 and Psalms 72 We see the Gransons The King is gonna have a Son which was Solomon but Solomon is symbolic of the H.G.Thats what Solomon means is Comforter H.G. and Solomon was the Granson. Symbolic of the H.G. THE COMFORTER. There is a great judge coming which is the H.G. THE COMFORTER Christ Offspring. He BREATH on them and they received the H.G YA gotta realize his breath was his word, his Seed thats is gonna impregnate this whole world with a spirit which is the H.G. ISAIAH describes the Davidic kingdom as Jesse, David and Solomon, Father son and granson, And Solomon was the great judge like no other in the O.T. Without this Father, Son, AND GRANSON SCENARIO THERE CANNOT BE AN ISRAEL OF GOD,God swore by his very self when he made this Promise of multiplication,Thats y he told Moses my name is abraham issac and jacob this is father son and granson that became the nation of Israel,but there is an ISRAEL OF GOD COMING WHICH IS ALSO FATHER SON AND GRANSON. Just as Solomon came out of the loins of David. the H.G comes out of the loins of Christ,HE BREATH ON THEM THAT WAS HIS SEED, his Word thus the H.G CAME OUT OF HIS LOINS, His seed etc. Thats y he refers to the H.G as the promise,Its his seed etc th gransons that are gonna be as the stars of heaven.Give the King thy judgements O God and thy righteounsness UNTO THE kINGS SON THAT WAS SOLOMON BUT IS PROPHETIC OF the H.G. the Kings Son ( Christ's Sons ) The GRANSON, tHE BEGINNING OF AN Israel of God that is gonna be born in US via that good seed his word etc The new covenant. The book in the Fathers righthand. Christ is not impotent, he has a seed to sow in humanity,Which is the word the Gransons. All nations are gonna call him blessed talking bout Solomon which is prophetic of the H.G. Christ which is IMMANUEL God with us.Blessed be his Holy name forever, let the whole earth be filled with his GLORY AMEN.We will sing a new song in that day,not this old churchanity song much longer.

  • George - in Reply on Numbers 12
    Hello, there's no law from God about races intermarrying so I don't know where this thought even comes from. Why assume it's wrong?

    Much of the hate and talk about racism in our world is from confirmation bias that the media amplifies to brainwash everyone about. There was slavery all over the world and the country that led to abolish it is still being demonized even though only a minority of wealthy people were the true owners of a certain political party and all of them are dead. But the other countries continue to have slavery even today are somehow ignored. Why? All races have been slaves and all races have been slave traders, unlike what the media tells people. People don't blame the today's Germans for WWII or the Japanese for WWII, because it wasn't them specifically who did it, yet, people continue to want to blame people alive today who have a certain skin pigment for all moral injustices of the past. If someone looks up the definition of racism it matches that last statement. So, people are incentivized to want to be oppressed to gain certain political capital- so much so that people even stage fake hate crimes. Some countries have many black billionaires and multimillionaires with them dominating professional sports and genras of music. Satan is alive and he wants everyone to feel divided and to think everything the media says is true and he wants you to blame others for things based on the color of their skin. That's evil.
