The Case for Christ

 

A case for Christ!

 

This entire world, proudly, understands many things about God, the Father;

and also Jesus, who walked this Earth.

But somehow, our ETERNAL "Christ" got lost in all of this!

***********************************************

Well, quite sadly, this world actually knows nearly nothing about God, the Father.

And this world knows only a bit more about Jesus, who walked this Earth.

Truly, these two cold and hard facts are the fuel for Satan's success in this world:

for he teaches (and lies) so much about both.

But now, do learn about this world's . . . Christ!

*******************************************************************

The first three Gospels of the Bible are about a man named Jesus, the Messiah.  Jesus lived and Jesus died.  The first three Gospels of the Bible are entirely about this man:  and the lessons this Messiah taught our world.  My friend, when you read the first three Gospels in your Bible, please do notice that this man named Jesus never, not even once, called himself the Son of God.  He only called himself the Son of man.  This is quite important.  Three full Gospels, and only "other people" called Jesus the Son of God.  But Jesus only called himself the Son of man:  69 times in these three Gospels.  Well, these other people were clearly wrong.  Jesus was the Son of man, just as these Gospels clearly indicate:  and just as his own words indicate.  Oh, this is quite important for this world.

Now, the Gospel of John is different for many, many reasons.  Only a few of these reasons shall be presented here for the sake and scope of this letter.  The Gospel of John is different because it was the last Gospel to be written.  In fact, it was not written until after John returned from Heaven (where he learned, and wrote, God's Book of Revelation).  Please do understand, that before the Gospel of John was written, the other Gospels were well-known and had spread across the region:  through at least two generations.  All of the deeds found in the Book of Acts were finished, all of Paul's letters were already sent to the various churches of that day, and in fact, when the Gospel of John was written, Paul had already been dead for over twenty years!  It would seem (to this author, at least), that it was the Will of God that mankind first learned about Jesus and his teachings:  before learning exactly WHO Christ was!  They were not the same!  The Book of Revelation was written in Heaven as John was observing all of the events, there in Heaven.  Only after John returned from Heaven with his Book of Revelation, was the Gospel of John finally written for this world.  Of all the New Testament writers, only John knew the Lamb (meaning Christ, the Messiah, our Savior), only John knew the Lamb's exact relationship to God, the Father, and only John understood the difference between Heaven and the Kingdom of Heaven:  solely because of the time John had spent in Heaven.  This author could provide countless proofs from the Gospel of John, but the scope of this letter does not allow for this.  Do notice, however, that no other Gospel teaches the details of Christ's exact relationship with God, the Father.  John learned of this relationship while he was in Heaven, learning and writing the Book of Revelation.  And John wrote very much regarding this relationship in his Gospel.  Please do use your common sense in this regard:  and know that your common sense will never fail you; God has seen to this.

Just the first ten verses of the Gospel of John are enough to prove everything above.  And in these ten verses (and a few more, later in John's Gospel), John teaches mankind everything that this world ought to understand about how Jesus relates to Christ, how Christ relates to God, the Father, and then how God, the Father gave Christ His permission to create this Earth, to create mankind, and to teach mankind in the Father's name.  Jesus was a man, here upon this Earth, for a little while.  Christ is ETERNAL.  Jesus, as a human body:  perspired, required food and water, needed a bath every so often, and had a beating heart.  Biblically, the Messiah was to be the most special messenger that God would ever send to this world.  Well, as it turned out, John proves that the Messiah was much more than a man who had the name, Jesus.  The verses quoted by John, below, will absolutely prove that the Messiah was actually, God Himself (who gave up all of His Godly power and glory!) to come live with us and show us that it is possible to live the life He asks us to do.  In the verses below, you will also learn that it was Christ who spoke to Abraham, it was Christ who created and then spoke to Adam and Eve, it was Christ who wrote the Ten Commandments for Moses, it was Christ who sent the plagues upon Egypt so that the Hebrews could leave.  It was not Jesus!  It was Christ!  There is a difference!

This author is going to give you a difficult task now.  As you read the verses below, remember that Jesus was born; and Jesus died:  Christ is/was an ETERNAL being who never did either of these things, here on this Earth; Paul teaches this lesson, separately.  If you can remember just that Jesus was born; and Jesus died:  then you will finally be able to understand how Christ, in Heaven, truly was the Son of God:  all of this being detailed in the Gospel of John.  Jesus, on Earth, truly was only the "Son of man." Jesus said so himself:  in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.  And please do note that all of this was by Design:  indeed, it was the Will of God, the Father.  Indeed, Christ knew all of this when He created this Earth and created Adam and Eve.  And indeed, Christ truly enjoyed fulfilling the Will of God, the Father:  in Heaven and on Earth.  Oh, he might have had a rough-time the night before WE, MANKIND, hung him on a cross, but his heart remained true to God, the Father, once he was placed on that cross!  (More on this, further below.)

So please . . . for a moment . . . forget about Jesus.  You know enough about Jesus!  Every Christian knows enough about Jesus.  But they know nearly nothing about Christ:  our ETERNAL Christ!

Did you notice those words . . . our ETERNAL Christ?  So here we go:

John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The original Greek word used for Word was Logos:  which means Spokesman, Spokesperson, or just Speaker.  This is the Spokesperson who spoke for God and actually was God.  In Genesis 1:26, God said "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness . . .”  God is made up of several parts.  The Jews have always known this.  The ancient Hebrew word for God is Elohim:  it is a plural used in the context of Us, We, or Our.  The Logos (of Elohim), or the Word of God, is the that part who spoke the words found in Genesis 1:26 above.

John 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God.

The Word has been there from the beginning as a part of God.

John 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

The Word is the one who actually made this world!  He was one of the parts of Elohim and was fully part of what made this world (God).  This includes mankind.

John 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

The Word was the giver of life in this world.  John goes on to explain how John the Baptist came to announce the coming of a "Light."

John 1:9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man (person) that cometh into the world.

This Light is that "Heavenly Being" who puts a "soul" into every person (meaning every baby!) which comes into this world.

John 1:10  He (the Light) was in the world, and the world was made by him and the world knew him not.

This Light made our world with its own hands.  The remainder of this conversation is starting to sound like Christ.

John 1:11  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

The Light made mankind (mankind is his).  This is now definitely starting to describe Christ.

John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Here, we finally have the truth of Christ from the Bible.  Christ clearly was always our God.  (Yes, there truly is a God, the Father, in Heaven, but obviously, this Father granted Christ the ability to create this world, and did not mind this world considering, and calling, the Word:  our God!)  And apparently, God, the Father, instructed the Word to come down to this world, using a fleshly body for a time, and then live amongst us without telling us who He was!  And the Word was to do this full of grace and truth!  Well now, the word "truth" strongly implies a teaching role.  And honestly, the word "grace" implies the same.  This!  This is what a man named Jesus was tasked with performing, while here.  Mankind expected our Messiah to be the greatest messenger God would ever send to this world.  (Except God did not just send a messenger:  God came here Himself (in John 1:14)!  God did not delegate the work:  God did the work Himself!  He disguised Himself as one of us and He did the work Himself while keeping His true identity hidden!)

My friend, the above verses truly were "cherry-picked" to illustrate this author's lesson.  While there were only fourteen verses and they were consecutive, this might have been the wrong way to present this conversation God is having with mankind here.  (As this author continually states:  God's "conversations" in His Bible are so important for our "understanding" of His Truths!)  So please, do read for yourself, all of the first 14 verses of John's Gospel and decide all of this for yourself.  (And please do realize that none of the other Gospels teach any of these Truths.  John learned ALL OF THESE TRUTHS while he was in Heaven, learning and writing the Book of Revelation):

John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

John 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

John 1:5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1:6  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

John 1:7  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

John 1:8  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

John 1:9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

John 1:10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

John 1:11  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

John 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

John 1:13  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Now, the lessons of John's Gospel (regarding God's Word) are not nearly complete.  There is much, much more!

Given that Christ made this world with His own hands (referring back to the first chapter of Genesis).  And given that Christ also made man and woman (referring back to the second chapter of Genesis).  The rest of John's Gospel shows many, many more works that Christ did in this world, with His Father's permission.  Always remember that God, the Father is completely in charge!  Christ was the Word of God (in Greek, this means Logos:  the Spokesman of God).  So it was only Christ who did all of the various speaking (for God, the Father) in this world!  All of this is what caused mankind to call Christ:  God, Elohim, Jehovah, Yahweh, and many other names.  And obviously, God, the True Father of Christ (who was the Word), does not really mind any of these actions on our Earthly part!  So we shall ignore this for now and let God's Will be done.

Now, in Chapter 8 of John's Gospel, John is actually preparing us for one of Christ's greatest teachings upon this world!

John 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:  he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Here, Christ says Himself that He was the light John was referring to back in the first chapter.  So again, Christ was the one who made this world, made mankind, and puts a "soul" into every person when they are born.  Oh, the religious leaders of that day did not like this teaching, but Christ continued:

John 8:56  Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day:  and he saw it, and was glad.

John 8:57  Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

John 8:58  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.

John 8:59  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.

Yes, this author capitalized the words I AM in verse 8:58:  and for a very good reason.  This lesson is to prove a Truth of God that mankind forgot approximately 2,000 years ago.  Oops, mankind did not forget this lesson:  only Christians fail to remember this lesson of God, the Father.  Every Jew upon this Earth, TODAY, knows this lesson.  Every Jew in that room, some 2,000 years ago, knew why they were attempting to stone Christ to death!  Jews know those two words:  because Moses commanded them to remember!  But barely a Christian who ever drew a breath, in the past 2,000 years, understands this lesson by Christ:  regarding who exactly He was, is, and always shall be!

So Christians, please do learn (again) that about 1,400 years before Jesus walked this earth, God (yes, that means Christ, the Word!) sent Moses to Egypt to free God's (yes, that means Christ's) people:  the Hebrew slaves.  Before going to Egypt, Moses asked God what His name was.  Surely the Hebrews would ask for the name of Moses' God:  so just what was God's name?

Exodus 3:13  And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name?  what shall I say unto them?

Exodus 3:14  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM:  and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

Exodus 3:15  And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you:  this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Exodus 3:16  Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:

So, the God who created this world instructed Moses to teach the children of Israel that His name was I AM.  Not only this, but the God who created this world also instructed this world to remember His name forever.  FOREVER!  The Jews have done quite well remembering this name:  even if they have no idea what to do about this name.  The Christians of this world have not done so well to remember this name and, until today, have been clueless as to the name that John quoted in John 8:58.  Apparently, the Jews of 2,000 years ago understood Christ's words SO WELL that they immediately attempted to stone Him to death in the very next verse!  Christians please take note of this lesson:  and learn from the Jews.  Because we are not finished here!

While Jesus was teaching those religious leaders of his day, please take note of what He said in John 8:56:

John 8:56  Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day:  and he saw it, and was glad.

John 8:57  Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

So, just how did Abraham see Christ's day, some 2,000 years before Jesus was born?  Never mind that Adam and Eve saw Christ's day:  every reader here understands this now.  But we are talking about Scriptures here and we are talking about the father of nearly all nations upon this Earth:  Abraham!  Well, it would take nearly an entire book to fully describe all of Christ's interactions with Abraham:  including the various promises that Christ made to Abraham.  It is beyond the scope of this letter to fully describe all of Christ's interactions with Abraham because they take up a huge part of the Book of Genesis in the Bible.  But let us briefly describe, here, a man named Melchizedek:  who lived in the days of Abraham.

************************************************************

Back in the days of Abraham, before any Hebrew, Jew, or any other faith existed, there was a city named Salem.  In the Hebrew words of the Book of Genesis, Salem means peace.  (As a side note:  in Hebrew, the term "jeru" means "city of.")  So in Hebrew, the term "jeru-salem" means City of Peace.  Not only this, but the Salem part means God's Peace!  (As a Christian note to all readers here, is it any wonder that when Christ returns to this world, His Book of Revelation states that He will be coming to the City of God's Peace:  meaning Jerusalem?)  Abraham knew Melchizedek quite well.  In fact, Melchizedek blessed Abraham for God, the Father.  What?

Genesis 14:18  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine:  and he was the priest of the most high God.

Genesis 14:19  And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

Genesis 14:20  And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.  And he gave him tithes of all.

Once one reads this entire story of Genesis, they will learn that Abraham had just returned from a great battle and was in possession of many "spoils" of his winning that war.  Verse 14:20 states that Abraham gave tithes of all to Melchizedek, the king and priest of Salem.

Now, hardly a Christian, today, has been taught that this Melchizedek is the ONLY person in God's entire Bible to ever be described as both a king and a priest of God.  Research this for yourself:  there are no others!  After you come to realize that Melchizedek was both the KING and the PRIEST of God, the Father's CITY OF PEACE, then you really ought to read what happened earlier in this 14th chapter of Genesis.  See what Abraham did that pleased Christ.  See what Abraham did to save his own family from destruction.

Oh . . . all of this is easy to read, here today . . . but would you?  Could you?  Do the same as Abraham did?  You can clearly see how Christ felt about all of this way back in our ancient history, when He was the friend of Abraham.

Christians today understand little regarding God's Old Testament.  This is not their fault.  Because Christians today have never been taught about Christ's place IN the Old Testament.  And who's fault is this?  Could it be the fault of all Christian faiths today?  Regardless, Christians today only understand the New Testament!  So, let's talk about that for a moment!

Hebrews 7:1  For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;

Hebrews 7:2  To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

Hebrews 7:3  Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

Hebrews 7:4  Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.

Oh, Paul wrote a LOT more than this about Melchizedek!  Every Christian should "re-study" Hebrews, but for the purpose of this letter, please do realize that Paul is teaching that this Melchizedek:

1.  Was the King of Salem (meaning the King of Peace).

2.  Was the only identified priest of God in the entire Old Testament.

3.  Was the only person, anywhere in the Bible identified as both, a king and a priest.

4.  Was a friend of Abraham.  (Multiple verses in Genesis regarding this friendship.)

5.  Received tithes from Abraham (and Abraham certainly knew to tithe only to God).

6.  Had no earthly father, no earthly mother (meaning, way back in Abraham's day - remember that we are talking about Christ here, not Jesus!), no children, no birth, no death, resembles a Son of God, and is a priest of God perpetually (meaning even after he leaves this Earth during Abraham's lifetime).

So . . . all of this is found in the New Testament?  YES - the Book of Hebrews!  Written long after Jesus died!  Now, all of this shows how Abraham had a friend named Melchizedek.  But did Melchizedek have any friends upon this earth?  Well, he had at least one:

James 2:23  And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness:  and he was called the Friend of God.

Now, there is just one more issue here that must be addressed before we move on.  Every Christian (and yes, every Jew) should take note that the above Truth of God, written by James, is the only Scripture upon this Earth that teaches of God having a "friend" upon this Earth:  and that Friend's name was Abraham.

************************************************************

Hopefully, we have shown enough Truths of God in the New Testament and the Gospels to convince every Christian (and many Jews) that Christ WAS the God of the Old Testament.  But if Christ truly was the God of the Old Testament, then we should be able to find ample proofs of Christ in the Old Testament Scriptures.  A few Old Testament Scriptures were shown above, but this was hardly even a glimpse, compared to that which Christ/God has provided throughout His earlier Scripture:  known here as the Old Testament.

************************************************************

THE OLD TESTAMENT PROOFS

 

THE BOOK OF PSALMS - WRITTEN 1,000 YEARS BC.

The Book of Psalms was written mostly by King David, but a few others did contribute.  Now, there are three particular Psalms of David, written in succession, that God sent to this earth for the sole purpose of Christians understanding that Christ was always the God, of the Old Testament.  Quite honestly, these three Psalms mean nothing to Jews!  (And quite honestly, this author sometimes wonders if Jews ever ask:  Why did God even put these three Psalms in His Scriptures, because they make no sense.) Oh, but the Jews should have seen all of this, way back in Jesus' day!

So many Christian preachers and ministers teach that Jesus momentarily doubted God, while up there on the cross:  with his impending death just moments away.  Not true at all.  Jesus was actually teaching this world all the way to his very last breath.  Psalm 22 is, arguably, the most important Psalm that David wrote.  Please read the verses below slowly:  and if they are in bold, try to not go past them until you have, in your own mind, the equivalent New Testament Scripture that matches.  Oh, not the exact book, chapter, and verse, but just the equivalent New Testament words, generally speaking, somewhere in the back of your mind.  Psalm 22 is the easiest (and most obvious) Old Testament Scripture which proves that Christ always was the God of the Old Testament because in this particular Psalm, the God of David actually addresses himself as "me, my, and I."

My friend, please read Psalm 22, below, in its entirety.  This is a critical Scripture from Christ, to this world.  In this Psalm of David, do realize that the God (of the Old Testament) is speaking to David, who wrote these words.  Once you realize that it was King David who wrote these words, do realize also that none of this ever happened to David.  In fact, you are about to learn that all of the Truths, detailed below, have ever only happened to just one single person upon this Earth:

Psalm 22:1  My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?  why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

Psalm 22:2  my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

Psalm 22:3  But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

Psalm 22:4  Our fathers trusted in thee:  they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

Psalm 22:5  They cried unto thee, and were delivered:  they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

Psalm 22:6  but I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

Psalm 22:7  All they that see me laugh me to scorn:  they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

Psalm 22:8  He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him:  let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

(Note by jpw:  the LORD is God, the Father of Christ!)

Psalm 22:9  But thou art he that took me out of the womb:  thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.

Psalm 22:10  I was cast upon thee from the womb:  thou art my God from my mother's belly.

Psalm 22:11  Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

Psalm 22:12  Many bulls have compassed me:  strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

Psalm 22:13  They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

Psalm 22:14  I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

Psalm 22:15  My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

Psalm 22:16  For dogs have compassed me:  the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me:  they pierced my hands and my feet.

Psalm 22:17  I may tell all my bones:  they look and stare upon me.

Psalm 22:18  They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

(Note by jpw:  when you read all of these words - my, I, and me - do realize that this is the God of the OLD TESTAMENT speaking about Himself!)

Psalm 22:19  But be not thou far from me, O LORD:  O my strength, haste thee to help me.

Psalm 22:20  Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.

Psalm 22:21  Save me from the lion's mouth:  for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

Psalm 22:22  I will declare thy name unto my brethren:  in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

Psalm 22:23  Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

Psalm 22:24  For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

Psalm 22:25  My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation:  I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

Psalm 22:26  The meek shall eat and be satisfied:  they shall praise the LORD that seek him:  your heart shall live for ever.

Psalm 22:27  All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD:  and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

Psalm 22:28  For the kingdom is the LORD's:  and he is the governor among the nations.

Psalm 22:29  All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship:  all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him:  and none can keep alive his own soul.

Psalm 22:30  A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

Psalm 22:31  They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

WHAT DO THE GOSPELS SAY ABOUT PSALM 22?

(Every bold Gospel reference, below, was placed in bold, above, for quicker referencing.)

Compare Psalm 22:1 to the Gospels:

Matthew 27:46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?  that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

(CRITICAL NOTE by jpw:  Contrary to popular opinion, Christ never doubted His Father (nor His Own duty) as He was dying here!  He was merely reciting an Old Testament prayer that He, Himself, dictated to King David, one-thousand years prior!  Indeed, He was directing all Christians, forever, to this very prayer!)

Compare Psalm 22:7-8 to the Gospels:

Matthew 27:41  Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,

Matthew 27:42  He saved others; himself he cannot save.  If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

Matthew 27:43  He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him:  for he said, I am the Son of God.

Compare Psalm 22:14 to the Gospels:

John 19:33  But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:

John 19:34  But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

Compare Psalm 22:16 to the Gospels:

John 20:25  The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD.  But he (Thomas) said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

John 20:27  Then saith he (Christ) to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

Compare Psalm 22:18 to the Gospels:

John 19:23  Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat:  now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

John 19:24  They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it.

My friend, we are not nearly finished here, but please do not EVER allow any church to DENY the above Truths of God to you.  In doing so, they are revealing their vanities and ignorance in one of three ways:

1.  God really did not mean this-or-that:  let me tell you what God really meant.

2.  God was just using this lesson as a symbol, or a "spiritual" representation of this-or-that:  so here is what God wants us to really learn from this story. 

3.  There is no number 3!  Any time you hear a minister, preacher, or priest use the above words:  here is what they are NOT WANTING TO SAY TO YOU:  We do not understand this Scripture of God because it violates every aspect of our church doctrine, creed, and/or the personal beliefs of our leaders.  So please allow us to present to you:  either lie number 1 above, or lie number 2 above.  Oh, how they love to use the phrase:  "Well, this is just a spiritual lesson," so they can then start any lie which comes to their minds.

 

NOW, PLEASE READ THE NEXT PSALM 23.

This Psalm 23 of David could very well be the dying thoughts of Jesus, while on the cross.  Also, they could quite easily teach this world about the thoughts of Christ, after he died here using the name of Jesus:  but before He ascended into Heaven to take His place next to God, the Father's Throne in the Kingdom of Heaven.  This is a Psalm that Christ told David to write:

Psalm 23:1  The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Psalm 23:2  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:  he leadeth me beside the still waters.

Psalm 23:3  He restoreth my soul:  he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Psalm 23:4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:  for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalm 23:5  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:  thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Psalm 23:6  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:  and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

 

NOW, PLEASE READ THE NEXT PSALM 24.

This Psalm 24 might very well be the first words that Christ heard in Heaven after He ascended back to Heaven (from His short time on Earth, using the name Jesus).  When you get near the end of this Psalm, think for yourself:  just who is the King of glory in this Psalm?  Who has ascended into the hill of the Lord?  Who had clean hands in this story:  meaning after Jesus died?

Psalm 24:1  The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Psalm 24:2  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Psalm 24:3  Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD?  or who shall stand in his holy place?

Psalm 24:4  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

Psalm 24:5  He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

Psalm 24:6  This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob.  Selah.

Psalm 24:7  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Psalm 24:8  Who is this King of glory?  The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

Psalm 24:9  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Psalm 24:10  Who is this King of glory?  The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.  Selah.

It is beyond the scope of this short letter, but this author has detailed everything above in his second book of Wisdom, here on this website.  The short-story of all of this is that Christ did not come to this Earth ONLY to die for our sins.  Oh, He did die for our sins, but that is not the full story.  Christ, by dying for our sins, graduated to a new level in the Kingdom of Heaven.  (Not Heaven, but the Kingdom of Heaven:  there is a difference!)  According to this Psalm, just who is Christ now?  He is now become the LORD of hosts.  (He has graduated to being both God, our Father, and also remains the King of glory:  our Christ.)  Not so hard to understand if you read the second book of Wisdom here.  And it shall fully explain how you shall begin "the journey of Christ" once you get to Heaven, some day.  Every Christian upon this Earth needs to understand that Christ was our "example" and was given to this Earth by God, the Father.

 

ALL OF THIS IS MADE CLEAR IN PSALM 110:

Psalm 110:1  The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

To clarify these words just a bit, know that "The LORD" is God, the Father of Christ; and "my Lord" was Christ, (meaning the God who spoke to King David!); and it is Christ who is being placed at the right hand of His Father's throne in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Psalm 110:2  The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion:  rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

Psalm 110:3  Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning:  thou hast the dew of thy youth.

Psalm 110:4  The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

(NOTE BY JPW:  Do you remember the Melchizedek we discussed above?  Well, here he is again!)

To clarify these words just a bit, "the LORD" is God, the Father of Christ:  and He just granted Christ some sort of "forever" level of being both King and Priest of "the LORD" just as Melchizedek was back in the day of Abraham.  Melchizedek came in Abraham's day and Melchizedek left in Abraham's day.  But here in this Psalm, God, the Father of Christ, is granting Christ this level FOREVER.  Apparently, Christ did not have this forever-position back in the days of Abraham.  But Christ somehow earned this forever-position after He used the body of Jesus for thirty-something years!

THIS . . . was Christ's reward in Heaven:  after He finished using the Earthly body of Jesus according to His Father's Will.

Psalm 110:5  The LORD at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

Psalm 110:6  He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

Psalm 110:7  He shall drink of the brook in the way:  therefore shall he lift up the head.

 

THE BOOK OF ISAIAH - WRITTEN 800 YEARS BC.

Isaiah 7:14  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Compare this to the life of Christ:

Matthew 1:18  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:  When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Matthew 1:19  Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

Matthew 1:20  But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife:  for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

Matthew 1:21  And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS:  for he shall save his people from their sins.

Matthew 1:22  Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Matthew 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Matthew 1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

Matthew 1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son:  and he called his name JESUS.

So, 800 years before Christ came to this world using the body of Jesus, this same Christ told Isaiah, the prophet, that all of this would happen and that His name was to be remembered as Immanuel (in Hebrew):  translating to Emmanuel (in Greek).  Back in Isaiah's day, every Hebrew understood this word to mean "God:  here with us.”  Back when Jesus was born, every Jew still remembered that this old Immanuel (in Hebrew) would mean "God:  here with us," when this event were to ever happen, later.  However, after it truly happened, and as soon as this Gospel was translated to Greek, all Christians failed to understand this Greek word of Emmanuel.  Well, to this day, this Greek word still means, "the God, who created this world, is with us, using this name Emmanuel."  Yes, that was a strong paraphrase (and a brave literary-license this writer took), but the point was made, right?

 

THE BOOK OF MICAH - WRITTEN 800 YEARS BC.

Micah 5:2  But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Micah 5:3  Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth:  then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

Compare this to the life of Christ:

Matthew 2:1  Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Matthew 2:2  Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews?  for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

The Old Testament ruler of Israel was always to be God, Himself.  No son, no representative, no prophet, but God, Himself.  This is what Micah was writing about.  All Jews understood this (from other prophets also).  Quite honestly, this was the main problem that the Jews had with Jesus.  They were not prepared, scripturally, for just "a man" to come:  indeed, the Apostles of Jesus felt the same!  They were all expecting something more similar to the Second Coming of Christ described in the Book of Revelation.  Oh, the Jews of that day failed . . . but only because they failed to understand their Scriptures.  Micah states, quite clearly above, that it would be the God who created this Earth, Adam and Eve, and the God who spoke to Abraham, Moses, and the prophets that would be coming to this world!

So . . . this author asks each reader now!

Are Christians, today, any different (regarding the understanding of their own Scriptures)?

 

JEWS!

THERE ARE LESSONS HERE FOR YOU TOO!

PLEASE CONTINUE . . . for a little bit.

 

THE BOOK OF SECOND KINGS - WRITTEN 600 YEARS BC.

2 Kings 2:11  And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

(What does this mean?  It means that Elijah never died!  And all Jews know this!)

Compare this to the very words of Christ:

Matthew 11:12  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

Matthew 11:13  For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John (the Baptist).

Matthew 11:14  And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.

My friend, the truth of life forces us to believe that the Second Book of Kings wrote about the past of John the Baptist some six-hundred years before it happened.

 

THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH - WRITTEN 600 YEARS BC.

Jeremiah 23:5  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Compare this to the life of Christ.

Luke 1:31  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Luke 1:32  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest:  and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

My friend, the truth of life forces us to believe that Jeremiah wrote about the kingly line of Christ (as God) some six-hundred years before it happened.

 

THE BOOK OF ZECHARIAH - WRITTEN 500 YEARS BC.

(This is the God of the Old Testament speaking,)

Zechariah 12:10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications:  and they shall look upon ME whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

(Did you see that word "ME" that God, the OLD TESTAMENT FATHER, just spoke to Zechariah?  Notice that they did not mourn for his only son, they mourned for HIM!  Read these words carefully!  They mourned for GOD, the Father:  as much as one might mourn for one's own son!)

John 19:33  But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:

John 19:34  But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

 

THE BOOK OF MALACHI - WRITTEN 400 YEARS BC.

Malachi 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

Malachi 4:6  And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Compare this to the times of Christ:

Luke 1:5  There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia:  and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

Luke 1:7  And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

Luke 1:9  According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

Luke 1:11  And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

Luke 1:12  And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

Luke 1:13  But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias:  for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

Luke 1:17  And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

To all Christians . . . you will fail God if you cannot remember just two simple lessons!

Jesus was Christ.  (For a little while!)

Christ was not just Jesus . . . He was a whole lot more than this!

To all Jews . . . forget about Jesus.  Jesus is dead.  He won't mind.  Yes he rose from the dead and completed a few more works, here on this Earth before he ascended to Heaven.  But once he got to Heaven, He returned to being the ETERNAL Christ, our Creator:  again!

Christ really was Jesus . . . for a little while.  But the rest of the while . . . when He was teaching Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David, and the rest of your forefathers, Christ was YOUR GOD!  He just did not explain this to you.  And later, when He did come here, using the earthly body of Jesus, He did indeed explain all of this to you.  But you failed this particular lesson.  So what!  Get over it!  Quite honestly, this entire Earth has failed God in so many ways, so please do re-learn about the Christ (God) of His Old Testament and then do learn about the Christ (God) of His New Testament:  this author has shown you all of this above.  DO NOT convert to Christianity.  Christ never demanded or even taught this.  In fact, know now that it was Christ who created your faith!  Christ does not make mistakes!  But do learn about His Works upon your Earth.  Oh, how Christ does indeed love the Jewish faith.  No, you say to this?

One sad lesson, that no Christian will ever understand, comes from their very own Book of Revelation.  This Book teaches that when Christ does return to this world, He will be coming to Jerusalem . . . to save the Jews!  The armies of Armageddon shall gather to defeat Jerusalem (and the Jews therein), but Christ will come to save Jerusalem:  thereby keeping the promises He made to Abraham, Moses, David, and all of His other Prophets of long-ago.

Jews!  Stay strong.  Keep your faith!  Live your faith!  But do learn about your God . . . Christ!  Because He left behind many Truths of God, that you have failed to learn.

************************************************************

So, once again:  To all Christians . . . now that you truly understand who Christ WAS and IS and WILL BE, do you honestly expect Him to FAIL in the promises that He made to Abraham, Moses, David, and the prophets?  Think about that for just a moment.  Now, think about the promises Christ has made to all Christians.  Will He fail?  WILL CHRIST FAIL?  And now, finally, think about your so-called Christian faith as opposed to the so-called Jewish faith.  We all have the same God!  There IS only one God!  In the Book of Malachi 3:6, God swore that He would never change.  (It was Christ who swore this promise to Malachi in the final book of God's Old Testament.)  And then Christians somehow believe that Jesus changed EVERYTHING in the very next Book of God of God's Bible:  that Book being the Gospel of Matthew?  It is only mankind who has divided this one God into smaller pieces!
