I Thessalonians 5:20, 21

Do not despise expounding of scripture, but scrutinize all things. Hold fast that which is right.

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

Are You Feeding on Milk or Solid Food?

One of the major reasons so many judeo-Christians are so easily deceived is they suck and swallow milk, skipping over the difficult and oftentimes controversial passages of Scripture, the meat. Given the meat of the word, they choke. Solid food is avoided at all cost. These solid food avoiding Christians thus remain babes in Christ.

Their judeo-Christian pastor feeds "his" lambs milk, week after week, by which they are never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Truth is the meat, the solid food of teachers.

"For everyone that uses milk is inexperienced in the word of righteousness; for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to them that are of full age, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." Hebrews 5:13-14

These spiritual children are "tossed and carried about with every wind of teaching by the deceitful unprincipled cunning of men, with a view to systematized error."
Instead, we are to hold the truth in love, we may grow up to Him in all things." Ephesians 4:14-15.

The number of immature Christians one encounters in the typical judeo-Christian congregation is astonishing. An entire meeting hall of immature sheep being sheared regularly to support their flat stone teacher-pastor, foreign missionaries casting the pearl of the Gospel to the dogs, and every third world charity that comes through town with their hand out.

Where are the mature Christians Paul wished for? (II Corinthians 13:9) Paul said he could do "nothing against the truth, but only for the truth." (verse 8) Maturity is tied to truth. Without truth there is no "completeness, " no maturing.
We have today in the world, an entire generation of baby Christians. They have never grown up. Darn near impossible to have an adult conversation with these baby judeo-Christians. Bring up a mature adult topic, anything dealing with the truth, the solid food of the word, and immediately hackles are raised and the bleating starts. "What you are telling me can't be the truth, as that's not what my pastor (and everyone else around me) believes.

As individual workmen we are to study the word for ourselves, so that we ourselves are workmen that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15. How ashamed most of the judeo-Christians I meet should be. They have been and are being deceived, and so easily, simply because they avoid the strong food of the word, the truth, and instead are being led astray by "jewish fables." Titus 1:14

Only those those who desire to remain immature avoid truth.

The remedy is simple: stop skipping over those passages of Scripture that disagree with your current paradigm, study the word beneath the surface, dig deep into the original languages, don't avoid those controversial topics and rightly divide, rightly discern the word of God.

Then, armed with the truth, live your life so that others desire what you possess. Be doers of the Word, not readers only.

Flat Stone Teaching

Have you noticed that most men who fancy themselves bible teachers are flat stone teachers? (FSTs)

By flat stone I mean they skip from one passage to another when they teach. They'll ask you to turn your bibles to such and such a verse, read the verse, expound on it for a few minutes, usually completely out of context, and then ask you to turn with them to another verse which may have the same word or theme as the verse they just left. Then for the next few minutes they'll explain to their listeners what they think that verse means, again completely out of context.

Flat stone teachers never get more than an inch below the surface. They never go deep.

Their bible knowledge, be what it is, is an inch deep and a mile wide.

Flat stone teaching, skipping from one passage to another, can avoid difficult and controversial passages by skipping right over them!

FSTs use this skimming and skipping over water - water is a symbol of the word of God - teaching week after week, month after month, skipping over difficult and controversial passages all the while.

I listened to a flat stone teacher expound on Matthew 8:5-13 recently. He read and "taught" his way from verse five to verse ten, skipping right over the two verses he appeared to not understand ( I watched with great interest as what cognitive dissonance looks like was being shown to me) and knew would not set well with his universalist itching ears listeners, to finish with verse 13; how great the Roman centurion's faith was and because of that faith his request was granted. Oh, if only we could have that kind of faith, right?

Too bad this flat stone teacher doesn't have faith in the Word of God to teach its truth, no matter how unpopular that truth may be.

Here is the two verses Matthew 8:11, 12, the FST skipped over:
11 I say to you that many will come from east and west, and [m]recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven; 12 but the sons (not of Jacob, but of Esau) of the kingdom will be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

This FST skipped to Matthew 8 from the passage in Matthew 15 dealing with the Syrophenican woman whom Yahshua "answered her not a word," and whom the disciples asked the Lord to "send her away, for she crieth (croak, like the cry of a raven) after us."

The FST's explanation for why Yahsua called her a "dog," was because of the "place she was at." What did "place" have to do with why he at first refused to even talk to her?


Her race, (Canaanite - see verse 22) not her place, is why Yahshua refused to talk to her and called her a dog. (In English, because she was female, we could call her a "bitch.") Her request was granted because she agreed she was a dog, and unworthy, not being a child of the Master. But her argument was, "even the little dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from the master's table."

Nothing is said of salvation, just that her daughter was healed. Magnanimous acts such as this are often granted to the undeserving by those in high positions.

Did the FST see the true reason the Roman centurion, obviously an Israelite, was accorded completely different treatment than the Canaanite woman? No, it went right over his head, the same way his teaching skims right over the water.

Consequently, all of those sitting under the feet of this teacher were once again fed milk, skimmed milk, pardon the pun, instead of the meat and truth of the Word of Yahweh.

Oh, how the truth of Yahweh would wake up His People to their rightful place as heirs of the promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!

"I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel."

Universalism and Pretzel Theology

Universalists have deceived themselves into believing that Yahweh has cast off His People, Israel, and is now dealing with non-Israelites, who have and are forming the "spiritual seed" of Abraham, Christ's "church," made up of all non-Adamic peoples (whom Yahweh did not breath the spirit of life into) who are not "born from above."

By creating this pretzel theology, they have to ignore numerous passages such as "I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel."

"I will seek that which was lost."

"I will seek out my sheep."

"He who scattered (James 1:1) Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd does his flock."

"I am the good shepherd, the good shepherd giveth his life for his sheep"

"The Son of Man is come to save that which was lost"

Would Yahshua come to seek a people that did not exist?

Hardly, as Paul assures us in Romans 15:8 Yahshua came to "confirm the promises made unto the fathers."

What are the promises? One of them was the Everlasting Covenant Yahweh made with Abraham and his (physical) seed after him.

That is, the House of Israel.

Asking, Seeking, Knocking

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? 12 Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.”
Matthew 7:7-12

The word “ask” (G154 Greek - aiteō) has several meanings: to ask, beg, call for, crave, desire. A synonym is deomai – to want, desire, long for.

“Seek” (G2212 Greek – zētēo) carries the meaning to seek [in order to find out] by thinking, meditating, reasoning; to enquire into.

Knock (G2925 Greek – krouō) is to knock with determination. Like the lord who returned and knocked for entrance into his house. (Luke 12:36) Or Peter when he continued knocking at the gate. (Acts 12:16) Confidently knocking, expecting the door to be opened. Not timidly, ready to turn away if the door is not opened as soon as we would like.

This promise is for “everyone.” Everyone who desires, everyone who reasons, thinks, meditates upon his desire and everyone who knocks confidently expecting the door to be opened, receives his desire. “It will be opened.”

The thing desired must be worthwhile; bread, a fish, “good gifts,” “good things,” not a selfish asking.

Everyone, in order to receive, must keep asking, keep seeking and keep knocking.

All too often, we give up to easily.

The woman – who the Lord called a “little dog” in Matthew 15 – had her desire for her daughter to be healed due to her persistence: she didn’t give up simply because the disciples didn’t help her, or the Lord answered her not a word, or when He called her a dog.

She had an answer: “Even the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their master’s table.” For this answer, this saying, this logos, she had her daughter healed.

That woman was determined not to take no for an answer. She was persistent.

She desired a worthwhile thing; the evil spirit to be cast out of her daughter; she thought about how that could be done, she then went to the one who could solve her problem and reasoned with Him. She did not give up until she received her desire. She persevered.

She is an example of "everyone."

How much more will Yahshua give to us, his sons, if we would only desire, reason with Him as to why we should be given our desire and then keep knocking expecting to receive our request?

What is it you desire? Are you willing to meditate on your desires, think about how to achieve those desires, seek those desires and then knock until you receive them?

"You have not, because ye ask not."

Lies of the Judeo-Zionist-Christendumbers

Let's look at some facts, rather than the lies we find everywhere in Judeo-Zionist-Christendom shall we?

1. The word "jew" was not even in the Hebrew or Greek - languages used to compose the Old and New Testaments, so how could either Jesus or Paul be a jew? when 'jew" didn't exist?

2. Yahshua was of the tribe of Judah. (Luke 3:33) It's now up to Judeo-Zionist-Christendumbers to show us the evidence, not just repeat their BS over and over again, that Jesus was a "jew."

3. Paul clearly states he was born of the tribe of Benjamin, (Phil. 3:8) not Judah. So again, the Judeo-Zionist-Christendumbers have the burden of proof to show us that descendants of Benjamin were "jews."

4. James wrote his epistle to the 12 tribes in the dispersion. The "lost" tribes.

1James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. KJV

1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,

To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: NIV

James wrote his epistle to Israelites scattered among the Greek nations, (see below) not to fellow "jews."

5. Paul, through Luke, authored the book of Hebrews. Hebrews were the 12 tribes of Israel, the Israelites, not "Gentiles."

Christendumbers like others to believe "Paul was the apostle to the Gentiles." Why don't the Judeo-Zionist-Christendumbers show us the book written specifically to the non-jews or who they like us to believe are the "Gentiles?"

6. Here is a perfect example from John 7 of how the deception keeps getting perpetrated:

32 The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering such things about him. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple guards to arrest him.

33 Jesus said, “I am with you for only a short time, and then I am going to the one who sent me. 34 You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.”

35 The Jews (sic - Judaeans) said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people (Judeans) live scattered among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?

Let's examine the orginal language from Blue Letter Bible

Then 3767 said 2036 the Jews 2453 among 4314 themselves 1438, Whither 4226 will 3195 he 3778 go 4198 , that 3754 we 2249 shall 2147 0 not 3756 find 2147 him 846? will 3361 3195 he go 4198 unto 1519 the dispersed 1290 among the Gentiles 1672, and 2532 teach 1321 the Gentiles 1672?

the Jews 2453
G2453 - Ioudaios
From Ἰούδα (G2448) (in the sense of Ἰούδας (G2455) as a country)

G2455 G2448 - Iouda
Judah = "he shall be praised"

1) the fourth son of the patriarch Jacob
2) the tribe that were the offspring of Judah
3) the region occupied by the tribe
4) a city of the tribe of Judah, conjectured to be Hebron, which was a city assigned to the priests and located in the hill country, and the native place of John the Baptist according to Jewish tradition

Nothing in the definition of G2448 Iouda from which G2453 Ioudaios is derived about "jews."

So, tell us, Christendumbers, how do we get jews from Judah? Not everyone who resided in Judah, was a "jew" just like not everyone who lives in (the United States of) America is German, or Italian or Roman Catholic. Saying that all the people who resided in Judah at this time period was jewish, is like saying everyone who lives in California is Roman Catholic.

Ioudaios should be translated Judaeans, not jews. Been over this a thousand times; just like American.

among the Gentiles 1672
G1672 - Hellēn

1) a Greek either by nationality, whether a native of the main land or of the Greek islands or colonies

the dispersed 1290
G1290 - diaspora
1) a scattering, dispersion
a) of Israelites dispersed among foreign nations

The Judaeans knew there were Israelites dispersed among the Greek nations surrounding their "world," their Society, at that time.

Notice the Judaeans didn't think that Yahshua (Jesus) would go preaching to the dispersed "jews" among the Greeks (Hellen)

No where in Scripture does it say that "Gentiles" are to be preached to, because no where in Scripture is the word Gentile to be found. Why in the world would a Latin word, gentilis, be found in a Hebrew or Greek manuscript?

It wasn't. Not until Jerome translated the original languages into Latin do we find the Latin word Gentile, which, btw does not mean "non-jew" as the Judeo-Zionist-Christendumbers would have others believe.

But it does mean people of the same race or gens. A related Latin word, genea, is where we get the word genealogy. You know what genealogy means, don't you?

And yet, everywhere one goes - we find this definition: "a Gentile is a "non-jew."

Even jewwikipedia gets it right if you put in the correct search words: "Latin Gentile meaning"

The term Gentile (from Latin gentilis, by the French "gentil", female: "gentille", meaning of or belonging to a clan or tribe) refers to non-Israelite peoples or nations in English translations of the Bible.

Latin and subsequently English translators selectively used the term gentiles when the context for the base term "peoples" or "nations", Hebrew, גוי (goy) and נכרי (nokhri) in the Hebrew Bible and the Greek word ἔθνη (éthnē) in the New Testament, indicated non-Israelite peoples or nations. The term gentiles is derived from Latin, used for contextual translation, and not an original Hebrew or Greek word from the Bible.

And yet we have Judeo-Zionist-Christendumbers repeating this lie over and over - which is what the jews have done for centuries - lie.

Their lies that get repeated ad naseum without being challenged is why most people including the Judeo-Zionist-Christendumbers believe the word Gentile means non-jewish.
