Synagogue of Satan
Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
The Synagogue of Satan - has a couple of main branches. There are zealous people being deceived by BOTH of the main branches. One branch of the Synagogue of Satan is the Jew haters. This branch thinks they have Replaced the Jews. Satan has deceived those in this branch to think they would be serving God by hating Jews. And the other Branch is the new Hebrew terminology version of the damnable heresy, that was referred to in Rev 2:9 and 3:9.
The Apostles earnestly contended against this damnable heresy, which was not to be officially named the Arian damnable heresy, until the 4th century. However, the fact that this was a main part of the Synagogue of Satan, with which the Apostles earnestly contended, is very clear from the scriptures. We will begin with that branch of the Synagogue of Satan, that later became known as the Arian heresy.
We should understand that BOTH branches are in great revival NOW. BOTH are spiritual cyanide, and something about which no child of God should be ignorant, in these last days of strong delusion. Let us begin with that damnable heresy which the Apostles battled, that in the 4th century, became known as the Arian heresy. Oddly enough both branches which seem so impossibly unlinked, are BOTH branches of the Synagogue of Satan. Oddly, often BOTH will have a common tip off.
One tip off that you are dealing with ministers of the Synagogue of Satan in these last days, is that they will have a special, unusual, almost secret or occultic way, to pronounce the name of God. VERY RELIGIOUS!!!
The Greek Version of this is well known, and easily spotted, with their special Jehovah name for God, of the Jehovah's Witnesses. The modern Hebrew Version of this, the revival of which is new, is MUCH more Subtle. Yet, this is the same one which the Apostles did so earnestly contend against. The new the Hebrew Version revival, is the MOST destructive form of this damnable Arian heresy EVER.
There are many Hebrew words for God, so it is much more difficult to pin down. However, the tag is still the same. Where the True Yeshua, Jesus, gives us the highest privilege to call His Father our Father in prayer and worship, the Hebrew spin version of the Synagogue of Satan, will have other unusual names for God. They may even tell you it is sinful to say God or Lord in prayer or worship.
Brethren, sadly, this religious spirit deception now-days, is leading away from THE Faith of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, some of the most zealous people. Called, chosen, and elect people are being overtaken and ensnared in this deadly destruction of their souls. It is another sure sign of the nearness of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The one who is God the Son, the Creator as well as Redeemer, told us all about it, in Mat 24:24-25 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.
Rev 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
Judg 13:18 And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret?
Those are TWO good Witnesses for the special name folk. Sadly, however, when you deal with religious spirits, that the people believe is the Holy Spirit, sometimes even the MORE SURE word of God, written in the KJV Holy Bible, can not get through to them. This is very sad, but true. Yet, all should KNOW that FAITH cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. The Holy Spirit always agrees with, and glorifies the Word of God. The Holy Spirit will NOT contradict the Word of God. Even if it does not FEEL good, the Holy Spirit will always lead to conformity to the MORE SURE, purified 7 times, written Word of God.
Psa 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and PRAISE THY NAME for thy lovingkindness and for thy TRUTH: for THOU HAST MAGINIFIED THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME.
Mat 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Mat 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Mat 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
John 17:6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
NO ONE OTHER THAN THE REAL YESHUA, JESUS, COULD MANIFEST THE HIGHEST MOST PRIVILEGED NAME OF GOD - FATHER
The living God is also Lord and Master. In English translations He is Lord in two ways. LORD spelled with all caps represents the Hebrew (YHVH) which no one on earth KNOWS how to pronounce, (Jud 13:18 and Rev 19:12). To be sure some think they know, and exalt their vain imagination, against the knowledge of God. Jehovah is a nonsense word, and some think YHVH could be pronounced as Yahweh, but the truth is that NO MAN KNOWS - I Cor. 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
YHVH, is the personal name of God, which He gave to Moses (Ex. 3:15; 6:3). Moses called Him, Who IS The I AM, (Hebrew - Hayah), "Lord" in Exo 4:10, Exo 4:13, Exo 5:22. There are 3 good witnesses in the MORE SURE written word of God, that Moses spoke to YHVH, calling Him "Lord." Everyone should know that Moses was not into Babylonian baal worship. Lord, as Moses referred to YHVH, in those 3 verses, with lowercase letters represents the Hebrew Adonai and/or the Greek Kurios. This refers to the master, the boss, the owner, the person with authority over another. As Lord, YHVH, Yeshua, Jesus, God the Son, is sovereign Ruler over all the earth. He is the Creator and Judge of all persons. Thus the Hebrew identifies God as "the Lord God, YHVH, the God of Israel" (Ex. 34:23). He is "Lord of lords" (Deut. 10:17). The New Testament proclaims, "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ." (Acts 2:36). Thus Jesus receives the same titles as the Father, leading to the biblical doctrine of the Trinity. And there are over 3000 clear witnesses supporting the biblical doctrine of the Trinity in the Old Testament.
The word synagogue simply means congregation. The "synagogue of Satan," then, is a congregation, made up of the individuals who "say they are Jews, and are not." The term "Jew" is used here in a spiritual sense according to the following scriptures:
Rom 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
Rom 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
That definition of a Jew, at the end of Romans chapter 2, is perhaps the BEST definition of a true, or spiritual, Jew ever written. In pure simplicity, a Jew is a God pleaser. According to that New Testament definition, a true Jew is not a people pleaser, or a self pleaser. The same great Jewish rabbi apostle to the Gentiles, also said in Gal 3:27-29 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
True Christians are spiritual Jews because Jesus says in John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. Those in the "synagogue of Satan" say they are spiritual Jews, but are NOT. They have Jewish or Hebrew terminology to promote the MOST DAMNABLE Heresy, the Hebrew spin Arian heresy. They may pretend to be real Jews, or real Christians; but like the Jehovah Witnesses, Greek spin Arian heresy, there are NOT Christians, and they are NOT Jews. They are the Synagogue of Satan. Any congregation that denies that Yeshua THE Messiah, Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh, is part of the Synagogue of Satan. That "IS" Come, present tense, means Jesus IS the I AM, (Hayah in Hebrew).
The most extreme violation of the 3rd Commandment would be to cause anyone to have a faith that denies that Yeshua is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. The Synagogue of Satan is best defined by those who with selfish, or malicious forethought, murder the souls of men. The soul of men is murdered by causing them NOT to KNOW the real Yeshua; because, real salvation is found in ONLY ONE Way. Any, I AM, in the Hebrew, Hayah, who is not God the Creator, as well as the Redeemer, is NOT True Yeshua, NOT true Salvation. The Synagogue of Satan will use ANY means to get anyone NOT to KNOW true Salvation, Whose Name is called the Word of God, and receive a false or counterfeit Yeshua, that is not true salvation.
The Real Yeshua IS the I AM. The Real Yeshua is the Mighty God, the Self Existent One, The Eternal Living Truth, The Living Torah, The Light of men, the Aleph Tav, the Alpha and Omega. The ONLY Way to KNOW or Approach Elohim, the Father, is through the Son, by the Holy Spirit. The real Yeshua THE Messiah, is Jesus Christ, who IS God the Son, who took upon Himself flesh, that He might provide Himself, as The Perfect Lamb, to take away the Sin of the World. Yeshua is the "I AM," (Hayah), who spoke to Moses from Mt. Sinai. The real Yeshua is Almighty, Self Existent, Eternal, Elohim with the Father and Holy Spirit. To know any other god, or to presume to know God by any other Way, is part of the Synagogue of Satan.
The Arian heresy part of the Synagogue of Satan was going strong in the days of the apostles. Peter, 2 Pet 2:1, wrote about that damnable heresy. The Synagogue of Satan was already operating in the days of the apostle John, masquerading as God's true church. It had congregations in the cities of Smyrna and Philadelphia in Asia Minor even at that early time. John's whole second epistle is about the damnable Arian heresy part of the Synagogue of Satan. Jude wrote about it. Paul wrote about it in Gal 1:8-9. They were first century Jewish synagogues which taught that Yeshua, was Messiah OK, but that He was LESS THAN GOD. That is what makes the Arian damnable heresy, the Synagogue of Satan.
The Arian heresy did not get an official name until Constantine's court theologian, Eusebius had firmly established it in the 4th century. It is necessary that you know something about Constantine's court theologian Eusebius. A little later in this discussion of the Synagogue of Satan you will get the essential details of the preeminent place that Eusebius has in the Synagogue of Satan. It was Eusebius, who had so firmly established the Arian heresy part of the Synagogue of Satan, that it took the best minds of the Church over 300 years to effectively contend with it, and overcome it.
The Arian heresy part of the Synagogue of Satan, survives to this day in the Greek, Jehovah, Jehovah Witnesses. And God only knows, how many hundreds of new modern Hebrew, YHVH, special pronunciation groups. This new Hebrew terminology version of the damnable Arian heresy is exceptionally seductive, to zealous religious people. The new Hebrew terminology versions of this same ANTICHRIST Arian heresy today are destroying the souls of people today that you would never think could be overtaken. There are more of these Hebrew Terminology Arian heresy groups popping up every day. In these last days the greatest attack of the Synagogue of Satan is being launched against some of the most zealous saints with this modern Hebrew spin of the damnable Arian heresy.
One of the hallmarks of Satan's activities is deception, particularly counterfeiting the things of God. 2 Cor 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
The real Yeshua said we will know such false ministers by their fruits -
Mat 7:15-20 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Brethren, in these last days of strong delusion, we should make sure that the church we attend, and its ministers, are following biblical doctrines, and producing the fruit of righteousness. Otherwise, it may well be a "synagogue of Satan."
Another main branch of the Synagogue of Satan, are those who would REPLACE the love heart motivator of Yeshua for racial hatred and blame shifting. One of the most sad and grievous things in the realm of religion, is how that some people have so perverted, and twisted, and wrested the scriptures, so as to justify Jew hatred and anti-Semitism. These sad, sorry, deceived, and deluded people are champions of Satan the devil. They compound their iniquity by doing their work for the devil, in the name of Jesus Christ. The bible says they are going to be cursed by God.
Christians should not hate anyone, and ESPECIALLY not the Jews. In the New Testament, over 20 times we are told that Yeshua, Jesus, is the King of the Jews. Yet this branch of the Synagogue of Satan does not want to obey THE KING. They seem to think their idea of replacing Israel, and destroying the Jews, will be pleasing to God. This branch of the Synagogue of Satan has more in common with the Muslims than they do with Christians or Jews.
They will say they have somehow replaced Israel. They will say that they are the true Jews. Nothing could be further from the truth. Yet they use the name of Jesus to justify their demonic hatred of Jews. Indeed there are those who say they are Jews, and are not. But it is much more sure that these Jew haters who call themselves Christians, are NOT Christians. Some estimate that perhaps only 2% of those who call themselves Christians really are, in this crooked and perverse generation which is on a collision course with the Judgment of God Almighty.
These hate groups, or Identity groups, by their perversion and wresting of the scriptures, serve the devil in the name of Jesus Christ. God has said He will bless those who bless the Jews and curse those who curse them. Somehow the devil has so twisted these racial identity groups to hate the people that God said we are to bless. Unless they repent, people like Pete Peters, just as surely as Vendyl Jones, are going to go to hell.
Racism and/or anti-Semitism is a work of iniquity. Heaven will be full of redeemed sinners, and there will be NO WORKERS of INIQUITY. Mat 7:22-23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work INIQUITY. The identity racial hatred groups will be CURSED BY GOD.
The truth is that Yeshua, Jesus, IS King of the Jews. Therefore, if anyone claims to love Jesus, we MUST love and identify with the Jewish people. Yes, we MUST love the Jews, the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or else we will stand the very real possibility of being CURSED by the God of Abraham.
I would recommend EVERY Christian, who seeks full understanding of the Synagogue of Satan in these Last Days, be encouraged to read the following related articles:

The book of Romans chapters 9 - 11 will clear up some of the confusion and put the light of the truth on BOTH of these branches of the Synagogue of Satan.
When we look at Romans chapter 9 we see how that Paul was so concerned because his Jewish countrymen were strangers and even enemies to the gospel. How blessed we are that we can believe that we will be the generation to see God removing the veil from the eyes of the Jews. The whole nation will be saved in one day SOON. Alleluia Yeshua.
Paul was so full of love for the Jews that he said he had great heaviness and continual sorrow in his heart. He almost could wish that he was accursed from Christ for his great love for his unsaved Jewish kinsmen according to the flesh. The Jews are God's chosen people whom God had adopted as the people with whom He would be identified to the world. The Jews were the chosen people through whom and to whom God manifested His power and glory by delivering the children of Israel from the bondage of slavery in Egypt. The Jews had a covenant with God, and God is a covenant KEEPING God. God IS God. God can NOT Lie. God does not Change. The Messiah was born in Bethlehem of the house and lineage of David. Jesus Christ was born as Jewish according to the flesh as one could possibly be Jewish.
God did not make the special promises to all of Abraham's children. The promises of God to Abraham were to be to Isaac. Only to Isaac, NOT Ishmael, or Zimran, or Jokshan, or Medan, or Midian, or Ishbak, or Shuah. Yes Abraham had eight sons (Gen 25:2) Yet only ONE son was CHOSEN to receive the covenant promises of God, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. When Jacob was born again he became Israel and never walked the same. Israelites are those who are born again by the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Adoption, the Spirit of Messiah. Alleluia Yeshua. Are you Born Again - then you are Israel - a prince who has power with God and man. Alleluia. Born again people are in the family of God called Israel. It is not a flesh thing, it is a spiritual thing. Before being born again, by the Spirit of God, we are born sinners and enemies of God. When we are born again we become part of the family of God called Israel.
The Jews had the covenants, and the law, and the only acceptable way of serving God. They had the promises of God. God the Son would take flesh upon Himself, the Jewish flesh of the Lineage of David. Yes, according to flesh and blood Jesus was as Jewish as could be.
We should understand that they are not all Israel, which are of Israel. This is what makes the Synagogue of Satan. People who claim to be Israel, who claim to be Jews, but are NOT. There are some who claim to be Christians who hate Jews. There are also some people who claim to be Messianic Jews who do NOT believe Jesus is God the Creator as well as Redeemer. Both are different branches of the same Synagogue of Satan.
Muslims have a hard time with the scripture in Romans 9:7 that says of Abraham, that in Isaac shall thy seed be called. The truth is that the children of the flesh, are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. Yes, the miracle power of God for whom NOTHING is impossible, was manifest in Sarah having a son, Isaac at age 99. God knows the end from the beginning and whatever God says will be, will be. God loves the good and hates the evil. When Rebecca had conceived Isaac's two sons, before they were born, neither having done any good or evil, Rebecca was told by God, Jacob the younger, was preferred over Esau the elder. In fact the Word of God says, before they were born that God said, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Is this unrighteous, or unfair? God forbid, not at all, God simply knows all of the choices we will make before that we make them, and He permits us to make the right choice leading to eternal life, or the wrong choices leading to destruction. God knows who will choose right and loves them. He also knows who will choose wrong and be damned for not making the right response to His great love in Christ Jesus. But we do NOT know. This compels us to preach the gospel to every creature as though all could be saved, though we know, in these wicked evil days, few will make the right response to the love of God in Yeshua. Let us each study the Word of God and seek Him diligently.
God told Moses that He will have mercy on whom He will have mercy, and He will have compassion on whom He will have compassion. We need to seek the Mercy of God in Yeshua, true salvation. It is not how well we run or the good we do, but it really is all about God who gives mercy, if we will seek His mercy, the ONLY acceptable way, in Yeshua, true salvation. We see clearly that Pharaoh was raised up, by God so that God could show His power, that the name of the God of Israel might be declared throughout all the earth. God has mercy on those who seek His mercy through Yeshua, true salvation, and the rest God hardens their heart, and finally turns them away from seeking His mercy through repentance.
Us puny men better not think to speak against a God who has shown such Almighty power and shown such great mercy and love through the Sacrifice of Yeshua, the Lamb of God. The simple duty of the creature is to obey his Creator.
God has endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction, but God, will soon show His wrath, and make His Almighty power, known. Some will know the riches and glory of His mercy and love in Yeshua, and others will know His Almighty power in hell. Some will enjoy the glory of His love and mercy. Those whom He has called, and choose to remain faithful to the END, not only Jews, but also the Gentiles.
Hosea spoke of God's sovereignty in dealing both with Jews and Gentiles. Through Hosea God told us "I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God." Alleluia. And Isaiah also said concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved. God is going to do a quick work and will finish the work, and cut it short, in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. And Except the Lord of Sabaoth had protected His FAITHFUL remnant all would perish like Sodom and Gomorrah.
The big problem of the Jews and most Gentiles is their seeking justification, not by faith, but by the works of the law. Many Gentiles have attained to righteousness, true righteousness which is of faith in Yeshua. But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, have not attained to the law of righteousness. Because they sought it not by faith, but by the works of the law. The problem for the Jews and most Gentiles is that they stumble at that stumblingstone; which is Yeshua. They want to do their own religious rationalizations, rather than to learn what God has said. For most people and Jews in particular, faith in Yeshua remains in Zion a stumblingstone and rock of offense. The ONLY saving truth is that by total Faith and Trust in the Sacrifice of Yeshua, whosoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed.
True Christians have a love for the Jews and have always earnestly desired to see the salvation of the Jews, and we are going to see God do this great saving work on the Jewish nation in one day when they will look upon Him whom we all have pierced through OUR sins. It was OUR SINS which made such a sacrifice of Yeshua necessary.
Brethren, is your heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel that they might be saved? It better be. That is the sort of Christian that Paul taught about himself and all true Christians MUST love the Jews. The Jews have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. They still have a veil over their eyes which will soon be removed. Today, they are ignorant of God's righteousness. Today, the Jews still go about trying to establish their own righteousness. Today, the Jews still have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God, which is by Faith in Yeshua, the ONLY acceptable Lamb of God. Christ is the destiny of the law for righteousness to every one that believes in Yeshua, for true salvation.
Moses described the righteousness which is of the law. The man which doeth those things shall live by doing those things which God says. The way of righteousness that Paul preached was exactly the SAME as what Moses preached. Justification by faith of Moses and that which Paul preached is seen to be exactly the same in:
Rom 10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Rom 10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
You will find that to be EXACTLY what Moses preached in Deut 30:10-15. Yes, Paul and Moses preached exactly the same thing. That if we will confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in our heart that God has raised Him from the dead, we shall be saved. It is with the heart man believes unto righteousness. It is with our mouth that we either confession or deny Yeshua, who is God's ONLY way of salvation. The scriptures say over and over that Whosoever believeth on Yeshua shall not be ashamed.
The Gentiles stand on exactly the same level with the Jews, in justification and salvation, in Messiah. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich to all that call upon Yeshua. The stumbling block for Jews and Gentiles both, is fully believing from the heart, that Jesus is God the Son, and that He made that ONLY acceptable sacrifice for sin, and is alive NOW at the right hand of the Majesty on high where He intercedes for His Saints. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? How shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? How shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
It is all about FAITH now. FAITH, it is all about NOW FAITH from NOW on. And look for NO OTHER way to get FAITH than the ONLY way God said we will get FAITH. Stop looking in the wrong places. We do not need extra biblical literature, we need Yeshua, true salvation, whose name is called the Word of God. See how it all fits together FAITH - the Just shall live by FAITH. And faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
The Jews should understand Yeshua, true salvation from the Old Testament prophecies. Yes they have heard. Moses said that God would provoke the Jews to jealousy by the FAITH of the Faithful Gentiles in Yeshua. The Jews have been provoked to anger that the Gentiles have found Yeshua, true salvation. Isaiah was very bold, and said, Yeshua was found of them that sought Him not that Yeshua was made manifest unto them that did not even ask after Yeshua. But to Israel Yeshua said, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
The rejection of the Jews is not universal. Do not ever join with that branch of the Synagogue of Satan that says God has cast away His people. God forbid. That would be asking for God's anger to say God is not a covenant keeping God. The Apostle Paul was a Jew, a son of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. Paul could say as well as any other Jew that God has not cast away his people. God is a covenant keeping God. Paul would say don't you know what the scripture says about Elijah? How Elijah said, against the Jewish nation, Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and thrown down God's altars, and I am the only faithful one left of the Jews and the apostates want to kill me. But God told Elijah that God had seven thousand men, who have not bowed to the idols of this world. And now more than ever there is a remnant among the Jews who have found God's grace in Yeshua.
Yeshua, is true salvation, by the greatest expression of the Grace of God and our works are of Absolutely NO COMPARISON.
So what is the deal with Israel and the Jewish people. Up to this time Israel and the Jewish people as a nation has not obtained Yeshua, but more and more Jews are turning away from dead works to Yeshua, just as more and more Gentiles are turning away from religious rationalizations of why we should not do what God said to do. More and more Jews are turning to Yeshua and to this day may not yet speak openly of their Yeshua. The majority of the Jews at this time still remain blinded to Yeshua.
God has given them the spirit of sleep and has kept a veil over their eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear until this day.
We Gentiles are blessed because God overruled the unbelief of the Jews to make us Gentiles partakers of grace of Yeshua.
Some in the Jew hating branch of the Synagogue of Satan say that the Jews have stumbled that they should fall and be destroyed. God forbid that any real Christian ever say such an insult to the integrity of God. That Jew hating branch of the Synagogue of Satan compounds the wrath they are storing up for themselves in their ignorant Satanic hatred of Jews, because they do this great insult to God's integrity and blaspheme the name of Jesus Christ at the same time. The truth is that the Gentiles have received Yeshua to provoke the Jews to jealousy.
It is so important for all real Christians to understand that the Jews rejection of their own glorious Messiah and King Yeshua, opened the floodgates of God's grace in Yeshua to us Gentiles. We we rejoice at that great Grace of God which us Gentiles have seen in Yeshua. Just think how great the rejoicing of both the Jews and real Christians will be when God removes the veil from the eyes of the Jewish nation of Judah. Yes soon we will see the name of the country of Israel be changed to the nation of Judah.
I know that the vast majority of those to whom the GJiGT reaches are Gentiles in Yeshua, and many Messianic believers, and a few Jews who know Yeshua. And it is a great joy in this great tribulation to think of these things we see now a the door. Our great joy in this great tribulation while we place all our hope and confidence in Yeshua does provoke more and more Jews all the time to turn to the Grace of God in Yeshua, even if they are not yet free to openly tell of their great joy.
We know the Resurrection, the Rapture, and the Lord's Return, is a SINGLE simultaneous event that happens at the SAME Time Immediately AFTER the tribulation. We Know its is NEAR because the Lord's return is LINKED to the Jews having the veil removed and coming to the grace of God in Yeshua. The Jews problem with Yeshua has meant a flood of grace to us Gentiles, but we know from many scriptures that the Lord's return is LINKED to the Jews embracing Yeshua.
Yeshua is the vine and we are the branches. Now we should know that just because some of the Jewish branches were broken off, so that us Gentiles could be grafted in to the family of God called Israel. It is ONE and the same God who IN Yeshua gives the grace of God to every branch solidly holding tight in faith in Yeshua.
We are not happy about anyone not IN Yeshua, especially the Jewish branches. Us branches are no big deal. Us branches do not support the vine but the vine supports and gives life to us branches.
Paul said it real well in Romans 11:17-21 that us Gentiles in Yeshua partake of the root and fatness of the Israel olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
All of us Gentiles need to be cautioned against pride and unbelief in these last days. The Jews are going to be called and find Yeshua as a nation. We will see them as a nation brought into God's visible covenant again. We need to be aware of BOTH the goodness and severity of God. Upon those who fall away there will be severity; but toward those who stay IN Yeshua there is the grace and goodness of God. IF IF IF we continue in His goodness. If we want to turn back to the things of this world which is soon to pass away we can and will be cut off. And the Jews if they stop rejecting Yeshua and turn from unbelief, shall be grafted in. God is well able to graft them in again.
All of us Gentiles were cut out of stock which is wild by nature, and were grafted into the family of God called Israel. How much more should we all rejoice in this great tribulation antichrist war on the saints when we see these Jewish natural branches coming to faith in Yeshua.
None of us Gentiles should be ignorant of this mystery. If we are ignorant of these things we could easily get sucked into either branch of the Synagogue of Satan in these last days of strong delusion. We do not want to be like the hell bound Jew haters of the Synagogue of Satan who are so blind in their own vanity and conceit. The blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. We need now to really be pressing in to Yeshua and faith in Him whose name is called the Word of God.
We do rejoice to know that soon all Israel shall be saved. Yeshua will soon be coming to reign from Mount Zion. Don't you love it when people ask about your Church. Our Church complex on Mount Zion is 3600 SQUARE MILES. That is the Biggest and Best Church, that Church of the Firstborn. You can read about our new Church complex there in Ezekiel Chapters 40-48. Yes it is 3600 SQUARE MILES. Yeshua is coming to Zion, to Deliver the nation of Judah, and turn away ungodliness from God's people.
God has a covenant with the Jewish people no matter what the hell bound Jew hating branch of the Synagogue of Satan has to say. It is God's covenant with God's covenant people, that He will take away their sin as they in one day as a nation look to Him whom we have ALL pierced by our own stupid sins. God still has a covenant with them and will take away their sin through the blood of Yeshua, the Perfect Lamb of God who is soon coming as the Deliverer, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Alleluia Yeshua.
Yes, we understand that even until this day as concerning the gospel that the Jews still are enemies of FOR OUR SAKE. That is why we do love those Jews who remain in simple ignorance of Yeshua. We do know God has not cast them off but will soon save that whole nation of Judah one day soon. We know that the Jews in Israel today are still part of God's elect and will some day soon be our brethren. We KNOW the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. They will come to faith in Yeshua, just like we have. They will receive the mercy of God through Yeshua just as we have by turning from unbelief to faith.
Our duty in this time is to Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We are watchmen who will do what we can to comfort and bless the people of Israel We will bless and bid God speed to all in Israel who are NOT part of the ANTICHRIST hostile Arian heresy branch of the Synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are NOT. We will NOT bid God speed to that Synagogue of Satan which says that Yeshua can be Messiah, OK but not fully God the Creator as well as Redeemer. Yeshua is NOT a lower level or second class god.
We are very excited even in this great tribulation knowing that soon those Jews in Israel who are not of the Arian heresy Synagogue of Satan, which is the vast majority though they do not now believe will soon find the mercy of God in Yeshua. All of Israel now except for that Arian heresy Synagogue of Satan will soon find Yeshua.
How much better than being joined to the Jew hating or Arian heresy branches of the Synagogue of Satan is it to be amazed by the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! God's way are higher than our way and apart from His word can not be seen or understood. His judgments are perfect. His ways are not to be rationalized away, but simply obeyed and done as the simple duty of the creature to His LOVING and Perfect Creator. We do not have to known the mind of the Lord. None of us are called to tell God how to do what He has said He will do. It is our duty to find out what He has said He will do by reading it with our own eyes in the 7th purification of His Word the KJV Holy Bible and simply do what He says. None of us have given to God so that He is in debt to us. All is to Yeshua the Great King and High priest. Everything is of Him, and through Him, and to Him. To Him belongs ALL glory for ever. Amen.
The Greatest of These is LOVE
The first four of the 10 Commandments, tell of our duty to God. They are the four instructions how to LOVE God. The instructions how to love God should be put first. We have a Creator to love, BEFORE we have a brother to love. There is no way we will be true to our brother, if we are not FIRST true to our God. The first commandment really is that God IS God. ONLY God should be worshipped. ONLY God IS God. Jesus Christ IS Come in the flesh. Alleluia!
The worship of creatures is forbidden, and that includes self-worship. Whatsoever we do, should be done to the glory of God. The third commandment concerns the manner of worship, that it be with all possible reverence and seriousness. All false oaths are forbidden. All approaching to God without serious reverence is a violation of the third commandment. All profane cursing, is a violation of the third commandment.
We take God's name in vain, by HYPOCRISY, making a profession of God's name, but NOT living up to that profession. Yeshua, who is the Word of God, who is the Living Torah, said BEWARE the Leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. The MOST SEVERE violation of the third commandment may easily be seen when we consider to whom Yeshua had the STRONGEST rebukes. Let us see just who gets the worst rebuke from Yeshua. Here are some of His enemies in chronological order.
Yeshua vs. Satan Matt. 4:3-11.
Yeshua vs Jews in the TEMPLE John 8:51-52 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. Then said the Jews unto him, now we know that you have a devil, John 8:58-59 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM. Then 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.
Yeshua vs. Scribes Matt 9:2-4 and Matt. 12:38-39.
Yeshua vs The Pharisees - Matt 23 This entire chapter is directed toward the scribes and Pharisees. Here are some excerpts:
Vs 2-7 The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do: but do not ye after their works: for they say and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders, but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments. And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues. And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
Vs 13 But woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for you neither go in yourselves, neither suffer you them that are entering to go in.
Vs 14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows' houses and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore you shall receive the greater damnation.
Vs 15 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
How could someone who spends his entire life studying and memorizing Torah end up being a child of hell? The key here is motive. David said, "Thy word have I hid in my heart that I may not sin against you, O Lord." The Pharisee says, "I will hide this word in my mind so that I will be considered an expert and use it to burden others with religious guilt." Someone with this mindset is nowhere near the heart of God. His motives are selfish, not like Yeshua.
This is exactly what the secret name special pronunciation folk are doing. Beware of this Leaven. It can puff up anyone with spiritual pride and cause anyone to perish in self-righteousness. Such leaven can shut anyone off from the grace of God to find repentance. Often this is a red flag that the special name people are trying to lead you to the most deadly Arian heresy like the Jehovah's Witness Watchtower with their JEHOVAH name for God. In these last days we are seeing Satan's great revival of this damnable heresy, when it is now-days being wrapped in Hebrew terminology. BEWARE.
All that is said about the scribes and Pharisees of Yeshua's day can also be said about a modern religious spirit driven people. They constantly burden other people with heavy religious burdens that have nothing to do with true faith. These priests have never entered the kingdom of God, and will not let anyone else enter. The effect of religious law has not changed in 3,000 years. The names of the lawgivers change, but the effect is always the same: slavery. Religious law will never lead to freedom. This is why Yeshua spoke out so loud and long against it. There is more:
Vs 16: Woe unto you ye blind guides... Vs 17 Ye fools and blind... Vs 19 Ye fools and blind...
Vs 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
Vs 24 Ye blind guides...
Vs 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
Vs 26 Ye blind Pharisee ....
Vs 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
Vs 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
Vs 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Vs 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
What kind of pattern do you see here? Was it the Mafia, or the prostitutes, or the drug dealers, or Satan, that Yeshua spoke most harshly to? No. It was the religious Jewish priesthood, that received His harshest words. He rebuked the religious folk worse than Satan himself. There is hardly a trace of emotion in Yeshua's words to Satan. Aside from the terse rebuke, "Get thee hence" Yeshua just quoted Scripture to Satan. Yeshua never once spoke harshly to someone in sin. By contrast, Matthew 23 records the most passionate, hateful and insulting words ever spoken by Yeshua.
These words are directed towards His own brethren, the religious experts of His day.
Yeshua hateful? I thought He was the Prince of Peace? He is, but according to Rev. 19:15, He also treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Rev 2:6 & 15 says Yeshua hates the deeds of the Nicolaitanes. This is the only time in Scripture that Yeshua said that He hated something. We should take careful note of what He was talking about. The word Nicolaitane comes from two Greek words which mean "conquer the people." Yeshua was talking about any priesthood other than His own. Anyone who claims to be a priest between God and man puts himself in the cross hairs of God's fiercest anger. The entire book of Hebrews makes the point that Yeshua is the ONLY true priest between God and man.
During Yeshua's day these legalistic priests were called scribes and Pharisees. Today the pre-eminent example would be the messianic Jewish spin special name pronunciation Pharisees. All have their own version of entrenched religious law. They will beat you to death with it, if you let them.
Looking at the behavior of the scribes and Pharisees shows us how these legalists think. They were angry with Yeshua because He healed on the Sabbath. Never mind that someone had been set free from years of bondage by the healing.
They were also quick to commit murder for theological reasons. If someone had offered one of these scribes a few coins to kill Yeshua, he would have recoiled in religious disgust from such a criminal proposition. However, this same religious person would have gladly stoned Him to death, simply because Yeshua had offended him, with His teaching.
It should be clear from these examples, that study and learning alone do not produce righteousness. Teaching must affect the heart more than the mind to bear fruit that is pleasing to God. Yeshua is not interested in students who have some way of spelling or pronouncing some Hebrew things, or even other special Hebrew words for His name instead of Jesus, God, or Lord. Moses addressed the I AM as Lord in Exo 4:10, Exo 4:13, Exo 5:22, and Moses was not into Babylonian baal worship. The Word of God should rather apply into every area of our lives. Such overly intellectual students are no more attractive to Yeshua than were the Scribes and Pharisees of His day.
To avoid the wrath of Yeshua, we must be doers of the Word and not just hearers. We must be doers of the Word and not just learners. We must be doers of the Word and not just memorizers. A simple-minded person who knows a few Scriptures and does his best to obey them is closer to Yeshua's heart than is a heady, high-minded hypocrite.
Yeshua wants people whose heart and will are submitted to Him. When He sees this in a person, He will draw near to him. He resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. James 4:6.
What does this mean to the average believer. It means that if you are teaching morality to others, but not practicing it yourself, you are inviting the strongest wrath of God. If you are teaching about sexual purity but have a secret habit of pornography, you are inviting the strongest wrath of God. If you are preaching to your kids about staying off drugs, but are addicted to Prozac, Valium, alcohol or tobacco, you are inviting the strongest wrath of God. Pastor, Teacher, Prophet, Priest or Poohbah, it means that if you are using the name and authority of Yeshua for selfish personal gain, you are inviting the strongest possible judgment from God. Remove the beam from our own eye before we tell someone else about the speck in his eye. Matt. 7:3-5.
If you want to avoid Yeshua's wrath, then avoid hypocrisy at all costs and allow only Yeshua to be your priest. Withdraw yourself from all merely human priestly authority and ignore all man made religious laws. Yeshua is our High Priest and He is Torah for us.
The scribes and Pharisees were enemies to Christ and His doctrine. Still there was something commendable in them. Religiously they fasted, and prayed, and gave alms. Religiously, they observed the ceremonial appointments. Religiously, they made it their business to teach others. However, the Lord Yeshua tells His disciples that THE religion He came to establish, did not only exclude the badness, but excels the goodness, of the religious Scribes and Pharisees. Mat 5:20
We are to do more than the religious folk. We are to do better than the religious folk, or we shall come short of the Kingdom of Heaven. The religious folk were partial in the law, and put the heavy emphasis on the ritual part of it, even how every word was spelled or pronounced. Brethren, we must be observant of the whole law, living and doing it from the heart. There is more than just to give the priest his tithe. We must give God our hearts.
The religious folk, by the very way they talked and wrote, commended themselves to all other religious folk, for their religious knowledge. The religious folk minded only the outside. Brethren, we must make the heart pure, and we do not know our own heart. We can not know our own heart with anything other than the Word of God. ONLY the Word of God can separate the soul and spirit, to enable us to see what God sees of our heart purity. Heb 4:12
The religious folk aimed at the praise of men. Brethren, we must seek to please God, and our aim is at acceptance with God. The religious folk were proud of what they did in religion, and trusted to their religious practices and knowledge of religious stuff as righteousness. Brethren, when we have done all, we must say, "we are unprofitable servants," and trust only to the righteousness of Christ.
The scribes were the great famous teachers of the law. You could tell they knew the letter of the Torah by how they pronounced their words. The Pharisees were the greatest professors of the law. The Pharisees, had such a reputation among the people that they were looked upon as super-conformed to the LETTER of Torah. The common folk did not think themselves obliged to be as good as the religious folk were. It was a great shock to those who heard Him, when Yeshua told them in Matt 5:20, that they must be better than the scribes and the Pharisees, or they would not be in His Kingdom.
We take His name in vain by covenant-breaking. God is a covenant-keeping God. If we make promises to God, we bind our souls to do good. If we do not perform those vows to the Lord, to do good, we take His name in vain. The oath maintained the obligation to speak honestly. Solemn oaths in the Bible were binding. Violation of an oath was serious and could not be disregarded (Ezek. 17:13,16,18-19). The making of covenants revealed the binding nature of the oath. Symbolic acts often accompanied an oath. Oath takers often raised their right hands or lifted both hands to heaven (Gen. 14:22; Dan. 12:7; Rev. 10:5-6).
Invoking the name of the King was another symbolic act common with oath taking. Using the Lord's name in an oath directly appeals to His involvement and establishes Him as the supreme Enforcer and Judge. To violate the Lord's name was to violate the Lord; therefore, oaths that used God's name carelessly are condemned (Ex. 20:7; Lev. 19:12).
The oath reinforced God's promises to His people (Ex. 33:1; Deut. 6:18; Deut. 7:8; Ps. 132:11). The oath established boundaries around human speech and set guidelines for human conduct (Num. 30; Deut. 23:21). The New Testament raised the oath to a new level of understanding. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus established a different standard of speech, one based not upon oaths, but upon simple integrity. A clear yes and no would be sufficient for communication (Matt. 5:33-37; compare Jas. 5:12). Jesus mocked and insulted oaths made by the Temple (Matt. 23:16-21). At His trial before Caiaphas, He was silent to the questions until a binding oath was placed upon Him (Matt. 26:63-65). Jesus did not condemn oaths, only the abuse of God's name in the taking of oaths. The apostle Paul frequently called upon God in the form of an oath to witness to his own sincerity (Rom. 1:9; 2 Cor. 1:23; Gal. 1:20). Hebrews establishes the superiority of Christ's priesthood over the Levitical priesthood because it was promised with an oath whereas the Levitical priesthood was not (7:20-22).
Throughout church history, some Christians have insisted that oath taking is a concession to the evil of this present age. Certain Christian groups have refused to take oaths under any conditions. Most Christians do not condemn oaths under any circumstance, but they condemn the abuse of God's name in oaths. The sinner may perhaps think himself without guilt. The Lord will NOT hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. This is SERIOUS, and means there will be a severe punishment. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.
Those who truly love God will be constantly aware to keep His commandments, particularly those that relate to His Worship. Those that love God, and keep His commandments, shall receive grace to keep His other commandments.
Psalms 139:19-20 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
Proverbs 30:7-9 Two things have I
required of thee; deny me them not before I die:
Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in Vain. We take God's name in vain by making a profession of God's name, but NOT living up to that profession. Yeshua, who is the Word of God, who is the Living Torah, said BEWARE the Leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. The MOST SEVERE violation of the third commandment may easily be seen when we consider to whom Yeshua had the STRONGEST rebukes. These were those who would strain at gnats, and swallowed camels. Like thinking the spelling, or pronunciation, or letters of God's name, were somehow more important than reading the KJV Holy Bible, to find out what God said, and clearly discern His Voice and leading of His Spirit.
Exo 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain
It is necessary in these days of Strong Delusion that you know something about a guy named Eusebius. Some will recall a GJiGT list article last June, which told you about another old timer of significance in these Last Days, a good guy, by the name of Erasmus. If you missed that one, you may click it up here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GJiGT/message/568
Eusebius was a bad guy. Talk about going from the sublime to the ridiculous, that is what we are doing when we speak of Erasmus and Eusebius in the same breath. It needs to be clear which Eusebius that we are talking about. The Eusebius we are talking about, is the one who is greatly loved by the antichrist world of apostates. The Eusebius we talk about is sometimes called "Father of Church History" or the "Father of Textual Criticism." Watch out for characters that this antichrist world embraces with such glowing terms.
When it comes to the theology of Eusebius it was PURE Arian damnable heresy. In all of the incredible huge volumes of the writings of Eusebius it is never ONCE to be found where Eusebius refers to Christ as God, or Theos, in the Greek in which he wrote. To Eusebius Jesus Christ is the lesser of 2 gods. The Jesus of Eusebius was the Arian heresy Jesus who was a creature of God. However Eusebius did allow that Jesus was created before time, and even allowed him to be the creator of life. However the way he protected his damnable Arian heresy beliefs was by condemning and exiling the Sabellians. In terms of today's theological belief systems that is like condemning the UPC and other oneness believers to protect the Jehovah's Witnesses.
In a single word, what to do, when someone speaks well of, or cites Eusebius as an esteemed expert - RUN, or at least crank up your spiritual antenna a couple extra notches.
In these days of the great falling away from THE faith, there is something being done by the religious deceivers that particularly angers me. There are many so called religious experts these days, who AT THE SAME time that they denounce the evil and corruption that Emperor Constantine wrought on the Church, - AT THE SAME TIME - these same people would dare to praise and hold up Eusebius, as some sort of highly esteemed church historical expert, and source of truth. James 3:11-12 Speaks clearly about such things. "Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh."
Eusebius not only enjoyed the special favor of Emperor Constantine but IN FACT was Constantine's court theologian. Brethren, we can not allow the religious deceivers, who lure people to their demonic camp with the truth about what the Emperor Constantine did to corrupt the Church, AND AT THE SAME TIME, ALLOW Constantine's court Theologian to be held up as an esteemed Church historian and source of truth. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
If Constantine was bad, then Eusebius had to be worse. Because he was Constantine's religious court theologian. In fact, Eusebius was probably the greatest promoter of the Arian heresy of all time. The Arian heresy is the spiritual cyanide, that denies the biblical doctrine of the Trinity, and teaches that Jesus was a lesser god, and IN FACT denies the deity of Messiah.
Eusebius so controlled Constantine's religious court, that whenever the heat was turned on Eusebius, he could very simply cool it, by having his opponents executed, or exiled, at his whim. Those who confronted Eusebius about his antichrist doctrines of Jesus being a lesser god, and denying that Jesus Christ IS come in the Flesh, were at least exiled, if not martyred. Eustathius reproached Eusebius for his promotion of the Arian heresy and Eusebius had him condemned and deposed. Athanasius reproached Eusebius for his Arian heresy denial of the biblical doctrines of the Trinity, and denial of the deity of Christ, and allegorizing Jesus into a lesser god, and Eusebius had him condemned and deposed, in Constantine's court, in 335. Marcellus of Ancyra confronted the Arian heresy denial of the deity of Christ and Eusebius had him deposed.
Eusebius has to be in the top 5 of Satan's all time deceivers, and destroyers of THE Faith. Eusebius is equal to, or worse, than Constantine. No one did more destructive work to attack the integrity of the Word of God. Eusebius may be the single handed reason that it took the best minds of the church a full 300 years to quell the Arian heresy. The Arian heresy still survives to this day as the Jehovah's Witnesses Watchtower, and Christadelphians. The Arian Heresy has always been spiritual cyanide. It is the Classic Denial of the Faith of Yeshua The Messiah. It is the classic failure of the "Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh," test of the spirit, and proof of antichrist demonic bondage. The Arian heresy is specifically why the Apostle John wrote:
2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
2 John 1:8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
2 John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
2 John 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
2 John 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
Brethren, this is why you need to be alert to EXIT anyone who would appeal to Eusebius as a credible authority regarding church history, truth, or faith.
Eusebius was a greater promoter of the Arian heresy, than Russell & Rutherford, of JW Watchtower fame. This Arian heresy is NOW exploding again. This time it is exploding in its most captivating and destructive form of its ANTICHRIST SUBTLETY EVER. Today, that Arian heresy, about which the Apostle John, by inspiration of the Holy Ghost, wrote 2 John 1:7-11, is now being wrapped in Messianic Jewish terminology. There are literally thousands of Messianic versions of the JW Watchtower springing up everywhere. People are being captivated by subtleties of this masterpiece of antichrist religious deception. Zealous, faithful, people are being seduced by these antichrist doctrines. It is spiritual cyanide, with instant strong antichrist demonic principality control.
When it comes to the theology of Eusebius it was PURE Arian damnable heresy. In all of the incredible huge volumes of the writings of Eusebius it is never ONCE to be found where he refers to Christ as God, or Theos in the Greek in which he wrote. To Eusebius Jesus Christ is the lesser of 2 gods. The Jesus of Eusebius was the Arian heresy Jesus who was a creature of God. However Eusebius did allow that Jesus was created before time, and even allowed him to be the creator of life. However the way he protected his damnable Arian heresy beliefs was by condemning and exiling the Sabellians. In terms of today's theological belief systems that is like condemning the UPC and other Oneness believers to protect the Jehovah's Witnesses.
That is why you need to know about Eusebius. If ever you hear someone claim or cite Eusebius as a source of anything but DECEPTION, you are in serious danger. To cite Eusebius as an expert in anything but antichrist deception, and assault on the integrity of the Word of God, is beyond the pale. That makes no more sense than when popes or presidents would say that Christians and Muslims have the same god. When that old Arian heresy, of the denial of the biblical doctrine of the Trinity, and that Jesus Christ is a lesser god, is accepted IN JEWISH, OR GREEK, OR ENGLISH TERMS - the messiah you end up with, will do you no more good than faith in Harvey the 6 foot Invisible rabbit. This may be the greatest masterpiece of Satanic deception and subtlety, held in abeyance for these last days of Strong Delusion. This messianic spin antichrist Arian heresy is EXPLODING now days. Your best defense is to Strongly AFFIRM the biblical doctrine of the Trinity. Know the difference between a KJV Holy Bible and the version perversions. Stick up your spiritual antenna a mile when you hear anyone mention Eusebius.
Back to Great Joy in Great Tribulation
