Jonah 1:1 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,
2: Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.
3: But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, ...
Ok, so I'm not Jonah, but a time comes when one realizes that they have put off something long enough, especially when you have been working on a fun graphics page all morning and go to put it up and the password is incorrect. Oh well, don't figure it. I gave up long ago. It will miraculously work as soon as this page is on, this is all I know. I also know that I am not a Jew, at least as far as I know. So obviously I am not writing this paper to benefit myself in anyway except for my peace of mind.
Who is the King of the Jews? For that matter who are the Jews?
Well, if you are Gentile, Born Again, Saved, Church going, Christian, Buddhist, Hindus, or what ever else name you wish to call your self, We all know that He was a person who was born and died. (Well, except for a few who can't read history) For many the story goes a bit further. It can be found in the New Testament of the King James Bible, that He died and rose again.
Most of us know Who He is, and so why go into it? Because do we really know? Or do we just think we know?
He was there at the very beginning:
1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2: The same was in the beginning with God.
3: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4: In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Whether we want to comprehend that is up to us. Need more back up?
Revelation 19:11: And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12: His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13: And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Hmmmm.... So this must mean He will be around at the end to....
Then we have the lineage it starts here:
Genesis 3:15: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
And ends here:
Luke 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,...38: Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
(This is actually the liniage of Mary, because Joseph was like a step dad, If you live in the USA you should know what that means these days (Joseph was not Jesus Dad.) The begets in Mathew only show that Mary and Joseph were the only two who could have raised Jesus at the time.)
Mary was a Jew.
Jesus was a Jew.
Like it or not He was/is.
Okay. Now read the Old Testament. Now read it again. Read any Old Testament you wish. Who is the Old Testament about?
Dahh the Jews.
How many times did God get mad at them?
Too many to count!!! Just like you and me! LOL!!!
You think He just sits up there happy with every move we make? Get real He is about ready to do away with me everyday! Here is a great example:
Exodus 32:31 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.
32: Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
33: And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
hmm... Wrong example but I like that one. ahhh.. here it is:
Numbers 14:11: And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?
12: I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they.
God gets mad...
He got mad at the Jews, He gets mad at us. He never changes. Ok so where exactly in the Bible does it say He totally gave up on the Jews? Go ahead
me the verses. E-Mail me all you want. You won't find one. You might think you have but you won't. Why not? Because there are none.
Now that you have already e-mailed me go back get rid of all your bias gentile/Hitler brainwashed thinking and read it again. This time in context with the rest of the Old and New Testaments. Can't figure it out yet? Read the WHOLE BIBLE AGAIN.
Now for every one who has e-mailed me again because you still think you have it all figured out. And you think you know the whole Bible inside and out explain this:
Joel 3:1: For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
2: I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
3: And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
4: Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompence me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head;
5: Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things:
6: The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.
7: Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head:
8: And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.
9: Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
Mathew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
If you continue reading in Matthew it talks about being nice... So these verses here are talking about nations, not a religious sect. And the people are the Jews. Why in the world would God talk about pleading for the Gentiles in the Old Testament? He is talking about the Jews. Of course there are a few comforting verses in the Old Testament about us Gentiles. But it is future tense.
Isaiah 42:6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
7: To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
Now read that again. ...thee... who is thee? Whose hand is he holding? Who is he keeping? Sure it's about Jesus but read all of 42 and 43. It's about the Jews. ...Oh Israel... 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
Oh that I were Jew, Oh that I were of Israel, Jealousy tears at us gentiles like a raging lion, seeking whom we may destroy. Satan in disguise. Wake up. Wake up. Don't be deceived!
okie now I am crying, I feel like God is crying, or is He raging, at all the blind gentiles running around claiming to be Israel!
But you see we have no need to be jealous He loves us too. We are supposed to be smart and have the Light in us. Those of us who truly understand who Jesus the Son of God is.
Back on track.
Zechariah 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
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.
11: In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
Ok all the house of David are in Jerusalem now...
are you of David? Are you saved, born again, go to church what ever? Do you know that Jesus died and rose again? Well, then what are you mourning for?
it says you will morn if you are Jewish of the house of David.
Zechariah 13:6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
I won't be asking, I already know! I will be running straight into His arms! Because I can't wait to see Him.
Zechariah 8:23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
I find it interesting this verse says Jew. Sounds to me like someday to get to the new Jerusalem we will need to go there with a Jew! How exciting! They have the answers, they are who have and always will point towards and lead the Gentiles to God.
Why did Jesus say
Matthew 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
38: Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
39: For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Luke 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
35: Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
There are so many verses once your eyes are open. I have written enough to interest you. It is now between you and the Holy Spirit. I have done the job He led me to do. Now I can get back to my fun graphic page, my password will probably never work because I am such a smart allelic!
If by chance you have come across this page and are Jewish (really Jewish) Of the line of Israel and belong to an actual tribe (Revelation 7:4-8). Then I would like to apologize to you for the behavior of us rude blind Gentiles. For taking your land, making you give it away, Trying to save you, killing you in the holocaust (YES IT DID HAPPEN) and everything else we have done and will do to you. At least from one gentile nobody person who loves your God and knows who you are and what you mean to Him. I know it does not mean much but never the less it is very humble.
And hey while we are on the subject of the tribes of Israel let me bring up the 144,000 (revelation 14:1-6). I of a certainty will never be one of you. For I am married, not a virgin, I try hard to follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth, but I get lost all the time! LOL. To top it off I am not a man. And only because of Jesus, Yashwa, am I found before the throne of God without fault.
So all of you striving to reach that goal it is a pretty tall order, and only 144,000 people on this earth will fit the bill. And they will be Jewish not Gentile.
Lose your pride. Get real.
By the way if you did e-mail me already the only reply you will receive is that "God loves you". I did not write this to argue. It is between you and the Holy Spirit now. All I know is that whoever you are, Jew or Gentile, God loves you!
