There is one aspect of Matthew chapter 19, verses 27 and 28, which I did not discuss last week. That is where Peter says to Christ: “Look, we have left everything and have followed You! What then is there for us?” 28 And Yahshua said to them: “Truly I say to you that you are those who shall be following Me in the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit upon the throne of His honor, and you also shall sit upon twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel!” Note that there is never any mention in any of these eschatalogical sayings of Christ about “Israel and the beasts of the field” or “Israel and the Chinese” or “Israel and the Africans”. That is because it is simply not true, and whoever teaches such a thing deceives himself. Yahshua said in John chapter 3 that “unless a man should be born from above, he is not able to see the Kingdom of Yahweh.” Only the Adamic Man has that Spirit of Yahweh which makes him born from above, and in the image and likeness of God. In 1 John chapter 4 that same apostle tells us that we are born of God, as Adam our father also was, and the others are born of the world. We are from above, and all who are not of us are from below. Therefore none of the others shall ever see the Kingdom of Heaven when it is instituted on earth! How can one claim to be a Christian Israelite faithful in the Scriptures, and pronounce otherwise? He is a liar and a fraud!

 

XX “1 For the kingdom of the heavens is like a man, a master of a house, who has gone out while it is early [before sunrise, or before 6am] to hire workers for his vineyard. 2 And agreeing with the workers for a denarion a day he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And having gone out about the third hour [or 9am] he saw others standing idle in the market. 4 And he said to them: ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever would be just I shall give to you.’ 5 And they went out. Then again having gone out about the sixth and the ninth hour [or Noon and 3pm], he had done likewise. 6 Then about the eleventh [5pm, the traditional end of the day was 6pm], having gone out he found others standing and he says to them: ‘Why have you stood here idle all day?’ 7 They say to him: ‘Because no one has hired us!’ Ha says to them: ‘You also go into the vineyard!’ 8 And upon its becoming late the master of the vineyard says to his foreman: ‘Call the workers and pay the salary to them, beginning from the last unto the first.’ 9 And those having come about the eleventh hour each receive a denarion. 10 And those having come first supposed that they would receive more, and they also each received a denarion. 11 But receiving it they muttered against the master of the house, 12 saying ‘These last had done one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the burning heat of the day!’ 13 But responding he said to one of them: ‘Friend, I do not wrong you! Have you not agreed with me for a denarion? 14 Take that which is yours and go! Now I desire to give to this last man as also to you, 15 so is it not lawful for me to do that which I desire with mine own? Or is your eye evil because I am good?’ 16 Thusly the last shall be first and the first last!”

Christogenea on Talkshoe – Friday July 15th, 2011 - Matthew Chapters 18 and 19

 

Last week we discussed once more the Canaanite woman and why Yahshua healed her daughter. Then we discussed the sign of Jonah, the leaven of the Pharisees, the apostles' belief that Yahshua was the Christ as well as the expectation of the coming of the Messiah which was prevalent in Judaea at that time. We also touched upon the phrase “the gates of Hades” and the belief in life after death as it was held by all branches of our race, evident again in the event known as the Transfiguration on the Mount. We also saw the non-scriptural belief of Herod and others in Judaea in reincarnation and we discussed what was meant by John the Baptist's having come in the “spirit of Elijah”. Then we discussed at length what Christ meant when He said that “If one desires to come behind Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me!” We saw, as we presented for an example, how Germany's Christian government under Adolf Hitler actually built that precept into their political philosophy, that an individual should live for the sake of his nation, and devote his life to its well-being. If we all lived in such a manner, that we put the interests of our kinsmen ahead of our own, then we would have heaven indeed.

 

Very importantly, last week we also saw that the “restoration of all things” is in scripture the restoration of the children of Yahweh to the recognition of the covenants of their fathers, and in the context of Scripture it is nothing more than that. A lot of universalists in Christian identity somehow try to use this phrase, taken out of context, to promote their lies, but they cannot do so with any honesty and they may as well be Catholics. Christ said that the Elijah who is to come “shall restore all things” and when we read of the prophecy of him in Malachi, all we see is the restoration of Israel to their rightful place in the covenants and polity God.

 

XVIII 1 In that hour the students came forth to Yahshua saying “So who is greater in the kingdom of the heavens?” 2 And summoning a child He stood him in the midst of them 3 and said: “Truly I say to you, if you would not turn back and become as the children, you shall by no means enter the kingdom of the heavens!

Christogenea on Talkshoe – Friday July 8th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 16

Last week we talked about the Canaanite woman of Matthew chapter 15, which has long been a topic of controversy and a subject so often misinterpreted in Christian discourse. Here I have something further which I believe strengthens the arguments concerning the customs of the times and the traditional roles of the suppliant in relation to the man in authority. This is from the book, Clemency and Cruelty in the Roman World, by Melissa Barden Dowling, from the chapter entitled “Clemency and Cruelty Under the Julio-Claudians”, pages 169-170:

“Let them hate so long as they fear. Gaius Caligula’s policy toward those who offended him, and those who did not, was carried out in actions of open saevitia [brutality]. His use of fear as a tool of rulership, and his disinterest in even the appearance of mercy, stood in contrast to the averred principles of his predecessors and of most of his successors. For others, clementia [clemency] was the watchword, advertised by princeps. senators, and subjects alike. The reality of imperial crudelitas [cruelty] was inescapable, however, and the proclamations of imperial clemency were often loudest when an emperor's savagery was most sharply felt. Gaius departed from Augustus and Tiberius in discarding the careful assurances of clementia that softened their rule; Gaius's successors did not repeat his error. During the reigns of Claudius and Nero, the dialogue of clementia continued in both imperial and elite propaganda. In fact, the definition of clementia  developed further under the Julio-Claudians, surpassing the scope it had held under Augustus.

“It was under Nero that the first philosophy of clemency was described by Seneca. As part of his theory of mercy, Seneca constructed a parallel philosophy of cruelty, outlining the degrees of irrationality that underlie cruel actions and highlighting the contrasting benefits of clemency. From Gaius’s naked crudelitas: to a sophisticated philosophy of clemency, in the ]ulio-Claudian Age Romans experimented with the vocabulary of power and ultimately created a stronger ethic of mercy to offset the power of the emperor. The normalization of imperial advertisements of the clementia principis and the creation of a philosophy of virtus [manly virtue] incorporating clementia as an expression of a good man's success were the outstanding developments of the ideology and social history of the Early Empire. These developments and the emergence of a parallel philosophy of cruelty, in which the degradation of a man’s nature was expressed through his crudelitas [cruelty], are the focus of this chapter.... “

Christogenea on Talkshoe – Matthew Chapters 14 and 15, July 1st, 2011

XIV 1 At that time Herodas the Tetrarch had heard the report of Yahshua, 2 and he said to his servants: “This is Iohannes the Baptist! He has risen from the dead and for this reason works of power operate in him!”

 

This is the first time we have seen the name Herod since chapter 2, but this is not the same Herod. There are ten different men named Herod, all of the same family of Edomites, identified in the index to Whiston's Works of Josephus. That first Herod, whom the jews like to call “the great”, is better known as the usurping murderer of the Hasamoneans and the son of the Edomite Antipater. He died just a short time after the birth of Christ, about 1 or 2 BC. He was succeeded by his son, Herod Archelaus, who was so cruel that after only a few years the Romans took the kingdom from him and exiled him to Vienna in Gaul. From that point on Judaea was split into four pieces, and rulers called tetrarchs were set over them, a tetrarch being a ruler of a fourth. Rather, this is Herod Antipas, another son of the first Herod, and he and his brother Philip each received a tetrarchy from Rome.

 

Herod Antipas was tetrarch over Galilee and Peraea (which was just east of the Jordan). Philip was tetrarch of Gaulanitis, Trachonitis and Panaea, which were all north of Peraea and east of the Sea of Galilee. Some time after Philip's death, another Herod, named Agrippa, was by the emperor Caligula made a king of this tetrarchy, since Philip had left no sons. Herod Agrippa was a grandson of the first Herod by Aristobulus, a son whom Herod had put to death. It is Herod the tetrarch, however, Philip's brother, the Herod who had his brother's wife, who is the Herod so prominent in the Gospels during the ministry of Christ. When John the Baptist upbraided Herod for taking Philip's wife as his own, Philip was still alive – for which see Josephus, Antiquities, 18.5.4. This Herod the tetrarch was later banished to Spain by Caligula (who was emperor from 37-41 AD), and his tetrarchy was added to the kingdom of Herod Agrippa (Josephus, Wars, 2.9.6). It is Herod Agrippa whose death is described later, in Acts chapter 12.

Christogenea on Talkshoe – Matthew Chapter 13, June 24th, 2011

 

Discussing Matthew chapter 12 last week, I think the principle lesson was the difference between Christ's interpretation of the Law, and that of the Pharisees. The Pharisees would claim to uphold the minute letter of the law to the greatest extremes, and often to the detriment of the common people. The examples set by Christ show that we first must have care for the predicament and needs of our brethren when they are in distress, and then we care for the law. Our brethren are more important than the letter of the law. The law is our ideal, but since we all fail to live up to it, we are grateful to have mercy in Christ. We must treat our brethren with the same mercy which we ourselves expect from Him. Therefore Christ, quoting Hosea, exclaimed that “It is mercy I desire , and not sacrifice”. [I hope to treat of this topic at length, from Paul's epistles to the Romans and to the Galatians, at Christogenea.net on my Open Forum program on Monday.]

 

This leads to another point which we saw Yahshua make last week, and that is at Matthew 12:31 where He said that “For this reason I say to you, every error and blasphemy shall be remitted for men, but blasphemy of the Spirit shall not be remitted.“ Last week I said, and I will elaborate again here, that there are people who claim to be Christian Identists, who deny the words of Paul where he says that “all Israel shall be saved”, or of Isaiah where he wrote Yahweh's promise that “all the seed of Israel shall be justified, and shall glory”. These same Pharisees, while they want to throw their own Israelite brethren into the lake of fire, they themselves do such things as engage in usury, enrich themselves by trading jewish securities, sell snake oil or engage and enrich beasts in business. They are no better than Judaean Pharisees or Romish Catholics. They need to extract the beams from their own eyes. Here Christ says, and I will quote the King James Version, that “All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.” Salvation is not for “good boys and girls”, but rather for the race of Israel only and entirely. That is the foundation of understanding the promises in Christ, because it is the express purpose behind His ministry and every promise of salvation made by God through the prophets. Yahweh promised to cleanse all of the sin of Israel, and makes no exception. Advocating integration and mingling of Israel with non-Israelites, one blasphemes the Holy Spirit. There is much more to the gospel, and to the responsibilities of the true Israel of God as a people, but we cannot proceed without first having a firm foundation in the racial covenants of our God. All Israel shall indeed be saved, whether the Pharisees and the Catholics like it or not. There shall indeed be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Should men put their wives away sexually if they come to the realization that their marriage was wrongfully initiated according to the Old Covenant law? Well, contrary to the pharisaical opinions of some claiming to be Christian Identity, that is not the example set forth in Scripture.

Here is the podcast of the program criticizing our position, which instigated the reponse given here. It is from Dan Kersey's Truth or Consequences program on Talkshoe, this segment featuring Jeff Westover and Patricia Aiken (aka "mouthypatricia"): http://data.christogenea.org/audio/dankersey_2011-06-02.mp3
