For those that don’t believe in Your own words, they can look at history and see that even though the world may not have been evil since the beginning of its creation, it has been ever since Adam and Eve.
“…Woe to the inhabitants for the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hat but a short time” (Rev 12:12).
This is the last chapter here, next is the Book of Philemon which in only once chapter. Then we go to Hebrews and then I will show…
Faith and Works
1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
1:1-2 – New Testament teaching is not confined to the area of personal salvation but includes much instruction about practical living.
Although believers are citizens of heaven (Phil 3:20), thy must also submit themselves to he earthly government (see Rom 13:1-7; 1 Pet 2:13-17) and help promote the well-being of the community.
2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
The Christian should no longer be any of the above, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have temptations of lust and pleasure and we can still get angry and throw fits. God knows this, but He expects us to maintain and deal with it because He helps us.
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as in common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Cor 10:13).
4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared,
5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
“According to his mercy he saved us” – salvation is not achieved by human effort or merit but comes through God’s mercy alone – see Eph 2:8-9.
“Washing of regeneration” – the Greek construction suggests that as we are renewed by the work of the Holy Ghost so we are washed by the work of regeneration.
“Renewing of the Holy Ghost” – reference to the new birth.
6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior;
7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
“About the law” – a reference to the situation described in 1:10-16. A similar problem existed in Ephesus (see 1 Tim 1:3-7).
10 A man that is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject;
“Heretic” – the Greek for this phrase became a technical tern in the early church for a type of heretic who promoted dissension by propagating extreme views of legitimate Christian truths.
11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
Stubborn refusal to listen to correction reveals inner perversion.
I had been like that for many years. It’s like when you are a child and stare at a page covered with text but you have no idea what it says. Then you go to school and learn how to read. The page you had seen at an earlier age hasn’t changed, accept now you can read it.
To understand God fully is, in my opinion, impossible. But, the ability to read His inner desires are not and when we have problems with it all we have to is ask.
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (Jas 1:5).
12 When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter.
“Tychicus” – Paul’s trusted co-worker, who on various occasions traveled with or for Paul.
“Nicopolis” – means “city of victory.” Several cities had this name, but the reference here apparently is to the city in Epirus on the western shore of Greece.
13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them.
“Zenas the lawyer” – if he was a Jewish convert, “lawyer” means that he was an expert in the Mosaic law; if he was a Gentile convert, than he was a Roman jurist.
“Apollos” – a native of Alexandrea and one of Paul’s well-known co-workers. The two travelers apparently brought the letter from Paul.
14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
15 All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
It was written to Titus, ordained the first bishop of the church of the Cretians, from Nicopolis of Macedonia.
Inventors of Evil Things
What Evil Cult Created Illuminism, Communism, Satanism, Witchcraft, and the New Age Movement?…And What They Are Up to Now.
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents” (Rom 1: 28-30).
Judaism is one of the oldest living esoteric traditions in the world. Virtually every form of Western mysticism and spiritualism known today draws upon Jewish mythic and occult teachings—magic, angelology, alchemy, numerology, astral projection, astrology, amulets, altered states of consciousness, alternate healing and rituals of power—all have roots in the Jewish occult.
Rabbi Geoffrey W. Dennis, Jewish Myth, Magic, and Mysticism (2007).
Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of Great Britain, once wrote that they are a “remarkable people” responsible for both the bloody crimes of the Illuminati in revolutionary France and the Communist genocide in Soviet Russia.
Jesus Christ said they were “serpents” and “vipers.” He accused them of serving their father the Devil, and said they are guilty of “all the righteous blood shed on the face of planet earth” since the day when Cain murdered his innocent brother, Abel (Matt 23: 31-35).
My own (Texe Marrs) files here at Power of Prophecy document that this same evil cult is responsible for murders and horrors unparalleled by any other group in the annals of history. I’m speaking, of course, of the Jews.
Throughout the centuries, this sinister, racist cult has massacred so many innocents and instigated so many pogroms, wars, tortures, and killings that it boggles the imagination.
How can such a small band of miscreants and misfits—totaling no more than nineteen million across the globe—wreak so much havoc, and be responsible for so much mayhem and terror?
(Note: Not every Jew is a member of this racial cult, but most Jews enthusiastically support its agenda, having been brainwashed into believing that they, the Jews, are “God’s Chosen” and superior to Gentiles.)
God’s chosen people are the Christians of the world.
“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” (Gal 3:28).
Anyway, Obama is a project of Britain’s Lord Rothschild, billionaire George Soros, and the Chicago Jewish Mafia. Here he speaks at the annual convention of the American Israel Political Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the most powerful lobby group in Washington, D.C.
The Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz (November 13, 2009) reported that Obama is being called “America’s first Jewish president” by influential Jews.
Rome’s Nero, a Jewish Convert, and Persecuted Christians
The Apostle Paul, in the New Testament, reported that it was the Jews who stirred up the Romans and incited such fierce animosity of nations against the Christian Church.
Historians record that Emperor Nero, after marrying a Jewess, converted to Judaism and swiftly became a persecutor of Christians.
Darkly inspired by his new found Jewish faith, the mad Nero fed many to the lions at the Coliseum, sawed others in half, and sentenced many others to be crucified.
Like the fanatical rabbis of the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem who demanded the crucifixion of Jesus, Nero was an “inventor of evil things,” a ruthless persecutor of the righteous.
But Nero and the Jews of his era were only imitating the deviltry carried out by leaders of this same cult since the founding of Judea.
Centuries before Nero’s crimes, the Jewish Queen Esther and her wicked, power grabbing cousin, Mordecai, persuaded the King of Persia to massacre 75,000 “enemies” of the Jews.
Esther, a whorish consort who influenced the monarch by her feminine wiles and physical beauty, even had the ten sons of Haman hung twice.
I usually agree with Texe Marrs, and the above paragraph is all true (Esther is the 17th book of the Old Testament), except for two things:
1) Even though some of the Jews were probably wicked, Esther and Mordecai, also Jews, were not. Haman was the wicked one and the king was informed of this.
2) Haman’s brothers were not hung, only Haman was, but the Jews did kill them all.
Haman’s hanging was ironic since he was hung on his own homemade gallows. Prior to that he had tricked the king into making a law that the people could kill the Jews, the king didn’t know at that time that Esther was a Jew (Est 3:8-9, 13).
Once a king signed a law it could not be removed, so even after Haman was hung the people could still execute the Jews.
The king then made an amendment to the law, that the Jews were allowed to be armed and defend themselves (Est 9:5), but they didn’t go around killing people, as Marrs says, the killed only in defense – Est 9:16.
How all this came about is because God was with Esther. God doesn’t care what nationality you are, He cares about where your heart is.
Marrs is usually correct on the Jews, most of them are disgusting , despicable thieves, but not in this case.
Tomás de Torquemada
According to encyclopedias, the ravages of the Catholic Inquisition, in which thousands of innocents were slain and tortured, suffering the most cruel of fates, being branded, painfully wracked by ghoulish devices and instruments, and finally burned at the stake, were overseen by a Jewish convert to the papacy—Tomás de Torquemada (1420-1498).
The Jewish-born Torquemada must have been filled with glee at the opportunity to so fiendishly torment true Christian believers. Among his victims were many women and children.
Weishaupt Was a Jew
Adam Weishaupt, who founded the Order of the Illuminati on May 1, 1776, was a Jew who became a Jesuit professor and, later, a Mason.
In more recent history, we find that the Jewish cult is responsible not only for the crimes of Illuminism and Communism, but also for such unholy political, social, and religious movements as Freemasonry, Witchcraft, Satanism, and the New Age heresy.
The founder of the Order of the Illuminati, Adam Weishaupt, proves to have been yet another Jew. His father and mother supposedly converted to Catholicism. Their son Adam, became a Jesuit professor and a Freemason.
The French Revolution, which he and his Illuminist cronies authored, focused on the destruction of the Christian Church.
Priests, pastors, and layman alike were guillotined, bayoneted, shot, drowned and otherwise slaughtered; churches were torched and ruined, and a religion of “Reason,” worshipping a sexual “Goddess of Liberty,” was celebrated.
Jesus was cursed everywhere by the Illuminist mobs who scathingly referred to Him as “The Wretch.”
By the time Napoleon seized the French crown and the Illuminati’s revolution had subsided, millions had perished.
But the bloodlust of the Jews and Freemasons behind the carnage was not yet satiated. History shows that the conspirators’ intent was to put to death a full three-fourths of the entire population.
The genocide was necessary, they reasoned, to bring humanity into “balance with nature.”
This is the same nonsensical “sustainable earth” theory that today motivates the bloodthirsty fiends who founded and manage the Environmental Movement. And once again, when we dig into the journals of history, we discover that Jews are its authors and drivers.
Marx’s unworkable doctrines were put into action in 1917 as the Russian Empire fell to Communist conspirators Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, two Jews who had the backing of Jewish bankers in Germany, Britain, and France.
Their Jewish bloodline was kept secret from the Russian and Soviet people, but is today admitted by historians. The Lenin Museum, in Moscow, Russia, now openly lists Lenin as a Jew.
Frank L. Britton, in the eye-opening book, Behind Communism, reports that virtually the entire leadership of the Communist U.S.S.R. were Jews.
Noted historian and Nobel Peace Prize winning writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, (Gulag Archipelago) reported that two-thirds of the commandants of Soviet Gulags (concentration camps) were Jews, and many of these monsters were Jewish rabbis.
It is, therefore, not an accident that most of the 66 million victims who perished in these dreadful camps were Christians.
Jews and Witchcraft
The Holy Bible demonstrates that witchcraft has long been prevalent among the Jews—a prime example being the witch of Endor, who was consulted by Israel’s King Saul and conjured up a dead prophet at his request (1 Sam 28:11–15).
Jewish historians and rabbinical authorities document the witchcraft of Jewish women—and even of rabbis—throughout history.
Today, perhaps the world’s best known witch is Miriam Starhawk, whose real surname is the Jewish “Simos.” Another Jewess, Margot Adler, is author of the bestselling witches’ classic, Drawing Down the Moon.
LaVey Was a Jew
The Church of Satan was founded in 1966 by a Jew, Anton Szandor LaVey. LaVey’s antics as a high priest of Satan earned him and his church the slavish devotion of singer Sammy Davis, Jr., buxom actress Jayne Mansfield, Beatle John Lennon, and rock star Marilyn Manson. Davis, a black man, even converted to Judaism.
Freemasonry is Jewish
There can be little doubt that Freemasonry is a satanic secret society begun by Jewish haters of Christ.
In Morals and Dogma, his classic guide to the 33 rituals of the Scottish Rite Lodge, Albert Pike, Sovereign Grand Commander, admitted that the Jewish Kabbalah (or Cabala) is the “true philosophy” and “the basis” on which Masonry was founded.
Eliphas Levi, Satanist, black magician, and fellow Mason, confirmed this Jewish connection as did Satanist Aleister Crowley (who bragged of being “the most wicked man on earth”) and Manly P. Hall, a 33rd degree Mason who was honored by the Scottish Rite Journal as the “20th Century’s greatest Masonic scholar.”
New Age Movement Inspired by Jews
The New Age Movement, which sprang on the scene in the last few decades, also is of Jewish origins. Take, for example, the New Age text, A Course in Miracles.
Authored by a Jewish university professor, Helen Schucman, this demonic textbook has been publicly embraced by Oprah Winfrey and such New Age luminaries as Marianne Williamson.
Dr. Helen Schucman, a Jewish psychologist and professor from New York, authored the popular New Age “bible,” A Course in Miracles. She claimed a spirit dictated the book to her. “It said it was Jesus,” Schucman related. In her book, Schucman says that Jesus and Lucifer are “brothers.”
Christian Heresies Spun by Jewish Converts
Many New Age cults and “Christian” heresies were founded by Jews, including the group Est, whose founder, Werner Erhard (a pseudonym), is actually “Jack Rosenberg.”
Moses Berg, who inspired his cult, The Family, to engage in prostitution and incest, was also a Jew, as is Tony Alamo, a “Christian” preacher convicted in 2009 of raping young girls. (Alamo’s real name is the Jewish “Bernard LaZar Hoffman”).
