THE WESTERN WARP

We were Western to the core… only slightly reformed and modified Catholics…

As Western Christians, our thinking has been warped. In spite of the Reformation, our churches, our thinking, and our doctrine are much more closely related to Rome than to Jerusalem. We have all but forgotten that Jesus was Jewish, all of the Disciples were Jewish, the first converts were Jewish, and the first churches were Jewish. The crucifixion, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, the ascension, the coming of the Spirit on Pentecost… It was all in Jerusalem and it was all Jewish.

As time went on, the Church became very much Western. The Roman Catholic Pagan Organization cut off the last of the connections to Judaism. Martin Luther was extremely Antisemitic and he passed that down to all who would follow him. None of the Reformers ever looked past Rome and back to Jerusalem… they were not intent on reestablishing Christianity and reconnecting it to its ancient roots, but only in reforming that which Rome had created. The churches that we grew up in were simply reformed versions of the Roman Church…

Our holidays were Roman, not Christian. Our meetings were on Sunday, not the Sabbath. We knew nothing of the Jewish Feasts or how very connected they were to Jesus Christ and our own faith… We were Western to the core… only slightly reformed and modified Catholics… Could we get people into Heaven? Yes, for the most part we got that right, but so much else was lost…

Did you know that the Passover Lamb was always tied to the altar at nine AM on the Day of Preparation and that Jesus was nailed to the cross at nine AM on the Day of Preparation? Did you know that the Lamb was slain at three PM and that Jesus died at three PM? You might know that now, but did you ever hear that in Sunday School or church when you were growing up? Everything in Christianity, including future events, is connected to the Feasts of Israel… But we were too westernized to care…

Yes, I still reject the idea that we, as gentile Christians, are obligated to become Jewish or speak God’s Name in Hebrew or abstain from pork… Paul fought those heresies in his day and Paul had been a Pharisee… But understanding our connection to Israel will help you understand what is happening in our world and what is about to happen…

I do not think that you need to run out and buy a prayer shawl, but I do think that you need to move past Rome and back towards Jerusalem. Everything is moving back and the Church is returning to its roots… If you miss that, you will miss everything.

Russia, Turkey, Iran and others are about to be destroyed… decimated in the mountains of Israel. Obadiah tells me that it will be so very thorough that Esau will be left with no descendants… The Arabs are the descendants of Esau. If I know that, I am not going to worry about those nations. Damascus will soon cease to be a city… Why should I worry about Syria? Israel will soon be restored to the full biblical limits of its territory and the AntiMessiah will rule from Jerusalem until the day Jesus returns…

Jesus was Jewish. The AntiMessiah is Jewish. Jesus died, rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven from Jerusalem and it is to Jerusalem He will return, and from Jerusalem that He will rule the Nations. It is from Jerusalem that Lucifer’s Messiah will rule… Everything centers in the Holy City. It is outside the Temple in Jerusalem that the two prophets will stand and prophecy truth during the first part of the Tribulation. It is in Jerusalem that they will die. It is on the streets of Jerusalem that they will lie for three days and it is from those streets that they will rise and ascend to their reward. It is from Israel that God will send 144,000 Evangelists to preach the Word…

It is misunderstanding this that will cause the Dominionists and the Seven Mountaineers to be deceived… This is going to look like victory… Israel wins big, a King rules in Jerusalem and he is enforcing the Noahide Laws on the world… Suddenly, marriage is in, extramarital sex and homosexuality are capital offenses, and liberals and atheists are swinging from gallows on every corner… This is victory and the King in Israel is doing it!!! Praise Yahweh! Meanwhile, they will still be looking for a Hollywood Antichrist and eagerly awaiting a PreTrib Rapture…

Stay clear of the Legalists and those who would have you going to Walmart in a Prayer Shawl… But do learn about your Jewish roots and how they make so very many interpretations of prophecy look so very foolish…

Think about it…

David…
