Jesus the High Priest

John 20:17
Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”

There is a lot more to this than it would appear on the surface.

Muslims would argue that Jesus is just a messenger [Prophet] and He did not really die on the cross. But that He only swooned and spent the time in the grave healing, or that it was someone else like Judas that somehow the crowd was made to believe was Jesus. They say that because He said My God it means He is not God Himself. But that ignores the trinity. Which is a separate issue. One man keeps insisting that somehow the remark Jesus made about Jonah being in the belly of the fish for 3 days proves He did not really die. Although the real similarity is that it was a 3 day period for each is the only significance.

The Lord not really dieing makes a kind of sense if you refuse to accept that the Lord was sacrificed for the world and that His sacrifice was the only acceptable payment. I am going to look at the passage above and show why it puts to sleep the notion that He did not really die.

In Biblical times when the blood sacrifices were being done by the priests of Israel, they did different kinds. from daily to once a year by the High Priest as an atonement for all of Israel. But on that one special day the High Priest was allowed to go into the Holy of Holies. They would tie a rope around one ankle with a bell attached. If the High Priest displeased God, he could be killed. They would know because the bell would stop making noise. Then the other priests would pull his body out by the rope. Because only the High Priest was allowed in the Holy of Holies. This does not mean that God would kill someone for no reason, the High Priest would have had to done something very seriously wrong.

The High Priest would bring in the special sacrifice and present it to God. The other part of this is that if it had been touched it would not be presentable to God because it would be defiled. And they would have to do another sacrifice. If Jesus’ blood had not been shed then it means the whole argument is over. But the fact that there were many witnesses to His death and over 500 to His resurrection, that argument is without merit.

Well here’s where the verse above comes in. Jesus was the Lamb of God, He became the final and ultimate sacrifice for the sins of mankind. When Mary came upon Him she naturally wanted to touch Him and be comforted. But Jesus said I have not yet ascended to My Father which means He had not yet presented the blood sacrifice in the true Holy of Holies.

This shows two things. First Jesus had to have actually died and also when He said it is finished, that was the end to all arguments and all sacrifices.

The other thing not covered is the part where He is called high priest in the order of Melchizedek. Melchizedek King of Salem.There is a Salem near Scythopolis in the tribe of Ephraim, near to which John baptized (John 3:23, where it is called Salim), and Jerome mentions that some local ruins there were said to be the remains of Melchizedek’s palace. The typical value of Melehizedek’s priesthood lies not merely in his being “king of righteousness and king of peace,” but even more in his priesthood being universal, limited by no external ordinances, and attached to no particular race or people. Moreover, he is a king-priest (Psalms 110), and by taking precedence of Abram. and blessing him, and receiving from him tithes, he became the representative of a higher priesthood more than any that could spring from Abram’s loins. Jesus was not a descendant of Aaron, and thus would not qualify for the Jewish priesthood under the Law of Moses. His priesthood is so much higher. Hebrews chapter 5, and then again at the end of chapter 6, telling us that Jesus “has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.

This does not take away from the fact that Jesus is also God. John was very clear that Jesus is also called the “Word of God” John 1:1-3. The phrase, “Word of God,” is used for both the Bible and the person of Jesus the Christ.

Sorcery

I think there are far to many “Christians” Making excuses for too many things.

I must start out by saying that there is a difference between using Pot or any other drug for medicine and using it for pleasure. There is a lot of evidence that pot has many medical uses. And yes I understand that it grows naturally, but that isn’t even part of the issue.

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Very important to know that many things can keep a person from God, not just our pet sins.

Revelation 21:8

But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

This is also covered in the Old testament.

The word Sorcery is from the root word for Pharmacy

It is in reference to those who were producers of mind altering drugs are known as Sorcerers. The drugs were used in worship to false gods. Although it is now referred to as being part of witchcraft and it is in a sense. The history goes back a long way past what people do today. But some “religions” still use drugs in their religious ceremonies.

God knows that anyone who takes too much alcohol, or anything that changes the state of a persons mind can change their relationship with Him.

If we are not in a sober state He is limited by our choice.This includes the use of Marijuana. Most people either don’t know or ignore that even though it is mild like maybe using alcohol, Marijuana alters your concept of reality. Although it can be just a little.

The meaning from the original word sorcerer. ‘sorcerers’ were persons able to prepare and dispense potions. But why did they dispense these potions? Was it in order to give relief from illness? Absolutely not! It was in order to stimulate hallucinations or visions! We must understand that it was long part of pagan religious practice to administer potions, or drugs, which would encourage hallucinations! There is, of course, a direct parallel here to modern illicit drug taking. But these original pharmacists’ were involved in the black arts and in demonology; the basic idea was that taking certain potions could bring one into contact with the spirit world, and that this was to be desired.

Much of those drugs were used in pagan idol worship, in the 60’s LSD was so powerful that a person had visions and no unlike Timothy Leary tried to tell us, LSD didn’t bring you closer to God. All it did like so many other drugs is confuse your mind and take you away from truth.

As a Christian if your going to take anything that changes your state of mind you are putting yourself at odds with God. Our relationship with Him is to be in reverence. Contrary to what some might think, you can’t be reverent if your stoned. Your mind isn’t working on the level He intended it to.

God wants all your best so you can understand His best and His true relationship with you.

Enoch

Chapter 8

1. Moreover Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and of all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered.
2. Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways.
3. Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and dividers of roots:
4. Armers taught the solution of sorcery;
5. Barkayal taught the observers of the stars;
6. Akibeel taught signs;
7. Tamiel taught astronomy;
8. And Asaradel taught the motion of the moon.
9. And men, being destroyed, cried out; and their voice reached to heaven.

Execrations: the act of execrating. 2. a curse or imprecation: The execrations of the prophet terrified the sinful multitude. 3. the object execrated; a thing held in …
As you can see, there is a very long history of the demonic influencing men.

Although these two articles go against societies ideas today, it’s something to think about.

Lukes Letters

The Books of Luke and Acts

Luke 1 Inasmuch as many have taken in hand to set in order a narrative of those things which have been fulfilled among us, 2 just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word delivered them to us, 3 it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent Theophilus, 4 that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed.

Acts 1 The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2 until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, 3 to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

The first thing you should notice is that they are both addressed to Theophilus. Paul was on trial in Rome and his coworker in the Lord was the Physician Luke. Theophilus was the lead investigator for the court of Cesar. Cesar was going to decide Paul’s fate and Theophilus brought in the evidence. The two books Luke wrote were written not only about the beginning Church but also how Paul played a role.

The letters were in essence affidavits; a written statement confirmed by oath or affirmation, for use as evidence in court. Luke had a first hand account of everything and was more than qualified to testify.

These two letters or books in the New Testament not only give solid evidence they are part of the Canon. Church fathers added them because they were also inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Semiramus

The Goddess Columbia warrior goddess. Liberty has existed in many cultures, including classical examples dating from the Roman Empire to those representing national symbols such as the American Columbia and its Statue of Liberty, All of it started in Babylon and is one of the many names used to worship Semiramis who was Nimrods wife and eventually known as the Queen of Heaven.

In Egypt, as the “queen of heaven” she was the greatest and most worshiped of all the divinities. During Egyptian bondage, the Israelites repeatedly departed from the one true invisible Elohim and worshiped the pagan mother. When the Israelites fell into apostasy under King Solomon, they worshiped this mother goddess as Ashtaroth (Asherah), a name by which the pagan Babylonian goddess was known to the Israelites:

Legend has it that after Semiramis died, she ascended into heaven and was returned to earth inside a large egg which fell into the Euphrates river. The egg was pushed ashore by a dove and she emerged from the egg as Astarte or Ishtar (in English, Easter). To show her gratitude to the dove, she turned it into an egg-laying rabbit, all signs of fertility.

Another sign or symbol found throughout Babylonia is the obelisk, a phallic symbol. These can also be seen in Egypt, Rome and Washington DC. The obelisk in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican was dragged up to Rome from Egypt.

Roman and Greek names:

Goddess of Hunting & Childbirth * Diana Artemis
Goddess of Crafts, War & Wisdom * Minerva Athena
Goddess of Growing Things * Ceres Demeter
Symbol of the Fertile Earth * Terra Gaea
Protector of Marriage & Women * Juno Hera
Goddess of the Hearth * Vesta Hestia
Wife and Sister of Kronos * Ops Rhea

Nike in ancient Greek religion, was a goddess who personified victory, also known as the Winged Goddess of Victory. The Roman equivalent was Victoria.

It’s extremly important for you to understand that no matter what her name is, she is still a false god. Exodus 20
3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Did Jesus say He was God?

Many times I have heard Muslims proclaim. Show me the verse where Jesus said I Am God. Or Jesus never claimed to be God. The problem is that many are afraid to look at the truth. But seriously I would like to see the verse where Jesus said don’t worship me, I’m just a prophet.

Exodus 3:13 Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?”
14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” 15 Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.

In the New Testament God said this. John 8:52 Then the Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You have a demon! Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word he shall never taste death.’ 53 Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Who do You make Yourself out to be?”
54 Jesus answered, “If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God. 55 Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”

58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

They picked up stones to kill Him because He claimed to be God.

“Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.” 1 Corinthians 10:1-4

In the passages above Paul is telling us that Christ was the one who spoke to Moses. The God of the Old Testament is Jesus in the New Testament!

Vacines

I copied this note. Very sad, but whats even sadder is it happens all the time. The writer is unknown to me but the story is not.
________________________________________________________________
Hi (friend)–“In reality, the sky did fall.”

First off I would like to say how truly sorry I am that I was upset with you and called you names. I could not help but get so angry with you every time you posted a stupid anti vaccine post. Being vaccinated military wife, mother of 5, grandmother of 5 all vaccinated I thought you had lost your marbles. I even unfriended you because of your ridiculous posts. Which sadden me because we were good friends and cared for each others families as our own.

Last summer I accompanied my grandchild’s well check up for school shots ( kindergarten). Everything was great that day we went shopping , out to lunch and Toys R Us.

*** While I was busy texting on my phone the Dr comes in says weight and everything looks good. The the nurse comes in with the routine shots and administers them. ***
I will never forget the screams that day He went into anaphalactic shock Immediately. The nurse yelled for the Dr and they called 911 and preformed CPR . It all happened so fast . I could not believe my eyes. After being flown to a children’s hospital and spent 2 weeks.

I never got the answers to my questions and was told some bull crap that he must had gotten bit my a bee earlier in the day. (Not true one bit)
After that my grandchild was never the same. Its like no one is there anymore. My grandchild was a happy and healthy child other than a cold here and there., teething and diaper rashes. All normal stuff.

One day it clicked that I had read something on your page that I thought was crazy about vaccines. So I begin the search of vaccine ingredients and was mortified. Words cannot express how sorry I am that I didn’t listen to your warnings and post. I really thought you were saying “The Sky is Falling”. In reality the Sky did fall.

Our grandchild is not the same. Never smiles , laughs , always fussy and just is not there any more. The school has been hell to deal with and said we need to consider special help classes.(another long story) That child was normal. We have hundreds of pictures and videos. Now when I mention this to Dr’s they act like I am crazy ( I now see how people might have treated you. . .um, including me, I guess).

I have been told if I mention vaccine injury at work I will be fired. Already my husband’s job is thin due to my inquires. Somehow I struck a nerve. But I know deep in my heart and soul that on Aug (date omitted), 2015 our normal grandchild died inside, but lives. Does that make sense to you (friend to whom I’m now apologizing)?

I would very much appreciate your friendship once again. But don’t blame you if you don’t want to converse with me. If you mention this to anyone , please don’t use my name. As is I hope I don’t lose my job or my husband after 30 years marriage we might divorce because of this. Being military and all of us being vaccinated and were okay is hard for them to believe vaccines are bad.

He won’t read anything I show him .. so it’s kinda hopeless. Everyone seems to be like zombies and believe what ever any Dr has to say. I know I am right even If I stand alone.
I hope that you can forgive me in your heart? If you have any information to help me I’d sure would be happy to read it.”

GOD exists And Is JESUS the Savior

So I’ve been hearing a lot about the teachings of Heathenism, Unitarianism, and Islam. Although there may be others as well; all these beliefs DENY that Jesus is God, they say that the Godhead (the Trinity) is a lie that was taken from pagan beliefs. Is this true?
What is the Trinity? Well if there’s one thing that must be made clear it’s the fact that the Biblical Trinity was NOT gotten from pagan religions. Why? Because all the apostles of Jesus taught and believed this! But why, why did they believe this, they were all Jews why did they believe all this? Well it’s obvious that they didn’t have a Bible so does that mean the Old Testament Scriptures taught this? Obviously YES!
In the gospel of John the apostle John identified Jesus before His birth as “the Word of God” which according to the Holy Ghost’s inspiration on him was the Word that became flesh. Now do you know that this Word is mentioned exceptionally various times in the Old Testament? Let’s read: “And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day…” Genesis 3:8: do voices WALK? No. But here it reads that God’s Voice was “walking” in the garden, why? Because this was the Word mentioned in John 1:1 that was made flesh as the Lord Jesus. There are also other places where the Word of God is said to have “come/came” to certain people, now understand that is a verb and speaks of action »» : Genesis 15:1 After these things the word of the LORD #came unto Abram…:
»» : 1 Samuel 15:10 Then #came the word of the LORD unto Samuel…:
»» : 2 Samuel 7:4 And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD #came unto Nathan…:
»» : 1 Kings 6:11 And the word of the LORD #came to Solomon…:
»» : 1 Kings 12:22 But the word of God #came unto Shemaiah the man of God…:
»» : 1 Kings 16:1 Then the word of the LORD #came to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha…:…
and there are a lot of other verses that speak of the Word of God coming to people. Yes you might say, but this is just speaking of things God said to people. Well if that was the case then you must understand that this Word of God is NOT the same as every other word of every other being. This Word possesses power, and this Word is God, this Word is why the men of old could know God. It was not just “sound” from the mouth of God but more than that it was God coming to His people. Whenever a prophet heard the Word of God to them it wasn’t just like hearing any news, rather it was as though they ENCOUNTERED God personally! Yes at times angels in representing God speak the Word of God to men but none the less they never speak the Word of God as their own but as the Word of the LORD GOD.
No matter the argument the fact remains clear that God’s Word is the most important topic discussed in the Old Testament! And also the Word of God could never come to anyone without the Holy Spirit of God working one in one with the Word. Read the Scriptures they prove this!
But what does all this mean? In all my years of study of the Bible I’ve had issues understanding the Trinity in the Old Testament but as you can read clearly in the Old Testament the Trinity has always been there. God (the Father), the Word of God (Jesus the Christ), and the Spirit of God (the Holy Ghost). It’s really funny the amount of people that do not notice this, and this is the truth. Right from the beginning God has always been triune, but until Jesus God was not triune in persons but triune in person. Only in the New Testament is God one in three “persons” but prior to this God was three in one, that is in personality.
John wrote: “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” 1 John 5:7: this is speaking of the Trinity of God in personality BEFORE the Word of God was made flesh at the birth of Christ. You see God is ONE and only ONE, but “God” is not a name it is a word (always remember that). Idols are called “God”, angels are called “God” as well, even humans in some cultures were believed to have been “God” too, so exactly how was the true Creator meant to differentiate Himself from all these false “God’s”? They were all beings of their own, who were acclaimed to be able to do exactly what God can do, they were even believed to have been the creator(s) of the whole universe.
So exactly what could God be that they (false gods) can not be that would draw all men unto Him?: “Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.” Acts 2:22-24: Now please I want you to note down the word “foreknowledge”, in the context here by virtue of that word it means God has ALWAYS had the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus in His knowledge, now understand that this doesn’t mean God was thinking about this but rather God KNEW this! In this sense we are therefore at the conclusion that the LORD God had KNOWN His Son right from before the beginning of the world and this my friend is the difference.
The only thing that made God different from those false gods, the only thing that made God true and they false was that He and His Word and His Spirit although one were all in harmony one WITH the other and in so doing the Voice of God walked and came and spoke to people, the Spirit of God anointed men that they would be holy and know the truth that they would be sons of God and be blessed. And by so doing love for God sprouted within the man so that he knew God as His personal Creator.
The same issue is here as well where you find God making His unique Word (His good news / Gospel) flesh (human) and in so doing personalized His Word as the man Jesus who is Himself God. A lot of people then might ask, but why then is the Spirit of God personalized when it was only the Word that was made flesh? Well the answer is simple, wherever the Word of God is the Spirit is with the Word so when the Word was personalized so was the Spirit within the Word (Jesus) because Jesus is the complete Word of God which is the gospel of salvation which testifies and declares the Father.
YOU are triune too with a spirit, soul, and body so live for Him, live for God our Saviour!****
