    what is "an hundred and seven and twenty" years old? The way they counted in those days.

    We have had no distribution for the book 'A World Deceived' since 2008, not 2018 as reported earlier. Perhaps, one of your book distributors would be interested? We would sell them for $3.00 each (plus shipping), which would cover our original cost. If they can't afford it, we will ship them for free. Please let us know.

    We also understand you fly around in an expensive private jet, paid for by the people you deceive, including the poor!

    Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

  • 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!

    The Godhead agreed this was the way to deal with sin once and for all.

    God looked away as Jesus took on himself all of Gods WRATH poured out for the sins of mankind.

    Jesus volunteered to be the propitiation for the sins of All Mankind. "For God so loved the world...."

    He didn't leave Jesus.

    You should know that in your heart? Google 'propitiation'
  • BATYAH on Matthew 27:63
    Yes, it is wrong to use the name jc. 2 Chronicles 7:14. If my people who are called by my name.........

    His name is YAH. YAH is the name of the true and living ELOHIM (God). He alone is the Creator of all.

    When we send the highest praise to our Father (Abba), we say "HalleluYAH." Hallelu = Praise to. His name =YAH

    John 5:43. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, you will receive him. J.C. is the other name that the world received Which is not the name of the Son of YAH. The

    Son's name is YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH. Do you see the YAH in His name. As He stated "I come in my Father's name." YAH!

    YAH'S name was taken out of the Bible because the wicked powers of this world do not want you to call Him or His Son by Their names. This is because there is truly power in Their names. Stop using the name J.C. If you look up the Latin definition for Jesus, it means " Earth Pig" Now think about this, would YAH give His son such a name with that definition?

    As the Bible saids in Revelation 22:18-19, we are not to add or take away from this book...... , The wicked powers spoken about in Ephesians 12:6 has taken out the true names. We have to start doing what scripture saids and call them by Their true names.

    Anywhere in the Bible that you read "the Lord," you should read "the Lord YAH." Therefore you identify Him by His name. Wherever you see "God," you should read as ELOHIM which in Hebrew language means God. The reason being is because there are so many false gods out there. Satan is also known as a god because some people worship him. As for the title Lord, that is what Sarah called Abraham, her lord. In ancient kingdoms there were people known as lord this and lord that. Lord is simply a title as to is God a title.

    Our Father YAH is Holy. He is in a category all by Himself. Only He knows the day His Son is coming back, not even is Son knows. Matthew 24:36 and Mark13:32. HalleuYAH!
  • George Pierson on Matthew 27:63
    Genesis 9:4 Only, you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.

    Exodus 24:8 Moses took the blood and dashed it on the people, and said, 'See the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words.'

    Leviticus 3:17 It shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations, in all your settlements: you must not eat any fat or any blood.

    Leviticus 7:26 - 27 You must not eat any blood whatever, either of bird or of animal, in any of your settlements. Any one of you who eats any blood shall be cut off from your kin.

    Leviticus 17:10 - 12 [ Eating Blood Prohibited ] If anyone of the house of Israel or of the aliens who reside among them eats any blood, I will set my face against that person who eats blood, and will cut that person off from the people. For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you for making atonement for your lives on the altar; for, as life, it is the blood that makes atonement. Therefore I have said to the people of Israel: No person among you shall eat blood, nor shall any alien who resides among you eat blood.

    Leviticus 17:14 For the life of every creature-its blood is its life; therefore I have said to the people of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any creature, for the life of every creature is its blood; whoever eats it shall be cut off.

    Matthew 26:28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

    Mark 14:24 He said to them, 'This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.

    Luke 22:20 And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, 'This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.

    John 6:54 - 56 Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them.
  • Apocrypha Reading on Matthew 27:63
    No offense intended. This the King James Bible Online Room.

    Most of us read the Old and New Testament that was canonized.

    Not the Apocrypha; which WAS NOT canonized.

    I use a Bible Dictionary, a Concordance and. KJV Commentary for study. I don't study Apocrypha. It's a different set of Books and, the Holy Spirit has never told me to read them.

    Guess I live a simple life: do, do not, when I get time :D

  • Lillie McCoy on Matthew 27:63
    Did Jesus rise in three days, would it be Monday?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 27:63
    He died on Friday, and rose on a Sunday. Friday and Sunday was not 24 hours, Saturday was. But 3 different days. He rose from the dead the third day after He died on the cross.
  • Kurt - in Reply on Matthew 27:63
    Ain't it interesting that our Creator, and Redeemer, who gave Adam and Eve the Sabbath at creation--rested in death on the Sabbath He created. Later in both the 1st and 2nd testaments, the LORD Jesus Christ made it clear that His commandments were not for everyone, but for those that love Him. I tried doing the substitution principle for years, and made a decision that there are too many promises in the written word of God to let any sinful man tell me that I'm not able to trust the LORD for all of His promises.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 27:63
    Jesus rose on the third day. He died on a Friday. ( what we call good Friday .) He rose on a Sunday on the third day. Now Friday and Sunday were not full days but Saturday was. Still 3 days. Not 24 hour days except for Saturday. This is why most christians worship on a Sunday.
  • 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.

    Who actually wrote Matthew, Mark, Luke and John?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 27:25
    Most Bibles have a short narrative before chapter 1. It starts the history Of what was going on.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 27:25

    Matthew was written by Matthew. Matthew was his Greek name. Matthew means gift of Yahweh. His Jewish name is Levi. And because his name is Levi, that tells us that he is from the tribe of Levi, and he is a priest of all people. Priests come from the tribe of Levi.

    In Acts Chapter 12 Verse 12, we are introduced to Mark. He's in Jerusalem. In fact, Acts 12:12 tells us that his name is John Mark. Many people in the scriptures that are presented in detail, they have two names. One is a Jewish name, and one is a sir name, or a Roman name. John is his Jewish name. It is Yochanan. And Marcus is his Roman name. His name is John Mark.

    Luke wrote both the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts. He is only mentioned three times in the New Testament. Luke is a Greek name, not Jewish. Many believe that he was a Gentile. I also believe that to be true. Luke was the only Gentile to be used to write a book of the Bible. The best evidence of him being a Gentile is in Colossians Chapter 4 Verses 11 through 14.

    John was written by the apostle John. He is a different John than John the Baptist who is introduced to us in John Chapter 1 Verse 6. This is the apostle John. John the Baptist, and the apostle John are two different people. John also wrote 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and the book of Revelation.

    No. You have to be born again before death or before the (rapture of the church).

    Go to the website open page and scroll down to the 'become a believer'. Link. You can read what is required.

    Don't procrastinate too long. Time is ticking faster these days.
  • Elsie Ekpenyong on Matthew 27
    Jesus because of what you went through for me and have done for me - I can fly through the air, I can walk on water, I can run faster than the wind, I can jump higher than Mount Everest. Oh my wonderful Jesus you have made me to walk upon the high places of the earth and I am feeding on the heritage of my father Jacob. There are no words to describe your greatness. I bless you LORD.

  • Joe - in Reply on Matthew 27:43
    Yes, 1 did believe & Jesus did say, today you will be in paradise (maybe not an exact quote, but near). Please read Luke chapter 23 vs 33 - 43 for more understanding.

    The veil was symbolic of the old covenant a levitical Priesthood. The new covenant REPLACES the old covenant. A Melchezedec Priesthood is now in effect via blood of Christ.No more temples made with hands NOW our high priest has to be born in us via the SEED of the sower, living WORDS of God,Abide in me and i in you.He always refers to himself as the SON OF MAN, MANKINDS FRUIT UNTO GOD TH MANCHILD
  • Rev. Dr. Moses Anyamwu on Matthew 27
    Matthew 27:50-54:
    A divine rearrangement took place after Jesus' last cry: Temple Veil open for new era, the earth responded to the call of Jehovah, the rocks splits and the grave opened up for believers forever and the centurion affirmed the ultimate genuineness of the Son of God who died on the cross.
    Now there is an open door for for those who will believe.
  • BSP on Matthew 27
    Verse 17~Pilate tried to release Jesus by contrasting him with a known criminal. The people showed how hard hearted they were in asking for Barabbas to be released instead of Jesus Christ.
  • Eutychus on Matthew 27
    "Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children." verse 25. The people pronounced a breath-taking curse upon themselves.

    And were reminded of it later, very strongly...

    "Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us." Acts 5:28.
  • A disciple on Matthew 27
    To this day the disobedient Jews continue in their obstinate refusal of any and all reference in Scriptures to the Anointed; and vainly hope in another kind to arise after their own imaginations. They say that Moshiach can be anybody; and they even go so far as to start appointing one by themselves, from among their own. Interestingly, EVERYONE ELSE knew that Jesus was Moshiach, but they refused!
  • A disciple on Matthew 27
    "And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews?...For he knew that for envy they had delivered him." Keywords which help us see this picture as it really was; that we have no need of putting flowerful unrealistic notions to the actual people and events, but that we may know the truth as God sees it; that EVERYONE knew but the blind haters!
  • A disciple on Matthew 27
    "And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing." Who among us would be able to exercise such self control and hold our peace in such an situation of outrageous cruelty and injustice? In the furnace of affliction would be an understatement! Yet the Lord endured all the insult and humiliation and utter contempt being COMPLETELY INNOCENT, and bore it quietly in faith!
  • Saint on Matthew 27
    In Matthew 27:52, these are those that died in faith - Abraham, Isaac Jacob, etc. The holy city is the early church - not natural Jerusalem which was not holy since they had just crucified Jesus... read Hebrews 11 about the faith these spiritual warriors had... but without receiving the holy ghost, they could not be made perfect...
