THE BRIDE IS THE NEW JERUSALEM

 

He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, THE NEW JERUSALEM, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name” (Revelation 3:12, NASB).

At this time it is obvious to all of our faithful brethren in the scattered churches of God that the alleged 42,000 members of the Worldwide Church of God also known today as Grace Communion International are unable to overcome the apostasy introduced by the wicked Tkaches. Besides our Sunday-keeping brethren now, there are also many erstwhile or former members of the Worldwide Church of God that have gone Laodiceans. They have become the prophesied remnant of the Church of the Laodiceans to whom Yeshua has addressed the seventh letter.

Only a very few of the members of the Worldwide Church of God, and some are not even members, have overcome and return to God and the Jewish faith of Yeshua. God will make anyone who shall overcome the false religion of Christianity to become a pillar in the Temple of God. When the members of the Worldwide Church of God have become scattered as a result of the apostasy and false doctrines introduced by the father and son tandem of the Tkach family, many of the faithful brethren have come and go from one Church group to another.

There is a congregation waiting for the people that are still seeking for the true remnant of the Church in Philadelphia. Yeshua may have referred to this particular group as the Temple since a Jewish synagogue is the known place where the unbelieving Jews are worshipping in many countries on earth. The Philadelphia remnant may be considered a temple in the sense that the Temple of God is the place where the Holy Spirit or the Shekinah is known to dwelling.

When the true Philadelphians find the so-called Temple of God among the scattered Churches of God from the Worldwide Church of God, they shall never go out of it. We are looking today for a Temple of God. Where is the place on earth that God had placed His name before, wherein the Temple had been built?

The place where God had appointed for His temple on earth to be built is none other than the city of Jerusalem. That is the place where we can find the group that bears the name of God and they would most likely have the name of the New Jerusalem. The fact is when you become Jewish in faith or when you convert in Judaism today you automatically become part of the holy nation of Israel. Jerusalem is the place where we are commanded to worship God. We somehow become a Jerusalamite in the true faith of Rabbi Yeshua, no matter what the unbelieving Jewish rabbis might say.

For what is worth, even those of us in Kahal Yerushalayim Hachadasha, are still waiting to see if we are truly the New Jerusalem in prophecy. There are many people on earth that have been deceived by the doctrinal beliefs of their Church organization. We are simply not like that for in Judaism all of us are one and the same even if there is a level of authority among us. We are all the kings and priests of God. Our destiny and purpose in this journey is to save many people on earth. We know we cannot save everyone on earth for there are many wicked idiots on earth.

Be careful on what you are reading in the Holy Bible for many people have thought what they are reading apply to them or to their church organization. The problem with this line of reasoning and mindset is God could really be talking to you or about you but you would not believe. You would most likely weaken your faith in God doing that at this time that we need to increase our faith in Him.

We can choose to play it safe for our own good and protection. But that is the way of the Laodiceans who are known for their tepidness or lukewarmness. Maybe God has spitted or rejected them for their noncommittal position in their religious and spiritual life. Do not trust in riches and wealth. Do not trust that all the true knowledge of God had already been taught in the Worldwide Church of God when Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong was still alive.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:13, KJV).

The last statement of Yeshua HaMashiach in His letter to the Church in Philadelphia could merely means that you should listen to the writer of this article. Perhaps I have the Holy Spirit of God dwelling in me or I could only be playing with you like many other corrupt religious leaders today. But it maybe the Holy Spirit of God that makes it possible for me to write and update this article again.

If that is not really true, know that I am already suffering at this time. Continue then to prove all things as Mr. Armstrong often wrote at the end of his writings.

Did you know that the true Passover Ceremony has not been practiced and taught in the Worldwide Church of God?

The established doctrine in the Church always has the tendency to become old and irrelevant overnight especially when it is not really true.

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:5-8, KJV).

THE HOUR OF TRIAL

 

A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father. Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father? They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.”

Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me? Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:16-24).

We can deduce from the preceding verses and the letter of Rabbi Yeshua to the true Philadelphians that He will come quickly when the trial of ‘those who dwell on earth’ (Revelation 3:10, NKJV) becomes hard and unbearable. The true Jewish followers of Yeshua HaMashiach in Judaism will be surprised of His sudden return. Rabbi Yeshua clearly states, “I am coming quickly! (Revelation 3:11).”  But before he comes back, the people on earth will experience sorrow and pain, trial and tribulation brought by coronavirus pandemic and other calamities like what are already happening on earth now.

The Jewish believers will experience complete joy when Yeshua comes again for the second time as the anointed King of Israel.

But before His second coming, Yeshua is telling us that we can overcome the trial that is already happening if our faith is strong.  All that we have to do is ask God for the things that we need right now. God shall respond positively to most of our prayers and petitions. That is the only way, Rabbi Yeshua can show to the rest of the remnant Churches how He loves us dearly.

The true Philadelphians will get what they are praying on account of their faithfulness in the observance and practice of the commandments of God. If we are not getting what we are asking from God there must be something that we are doing wrong. When our prayers go unanswered the problem could lie upon us. Holiness and perfection in the eyes of God are not easily acquired. This is the reason why we need to constantly and faithfully study the Law of God.

We have to continue going even when the going gets tough. We have to be patient and to endure the trials and purging of our soul. There are many things that Rabbi Yeshua had written in his letter to the Philadelphians that are being fulfilled today through the members of the New Jerusalem congregation. If you think you are suffering more than what your brethren in your church are going through, maybe that is one of the ways that God is telling you to take that leap of faith and become part of the New Jerusalem congregation.

Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown” (Revelation 3: 10-11, ESV).

What is the meaning of the prophetic testimony of Yeshua ‘my word about patient endurance?

Some other Bible translations rendered it as the ‘command to endure’ or ‘the command of patient endurance.’ Yeshua has instructed His kohanim or priests to be patient and to endure what they will be going through at this moment. Many people on earth are going through such tremendous trial they have not yet experience before. The ‘hour of trial,’ or can we refer to that as the Great Tribulation, may have come already upon the inhabitants of this world. We are already in the Great Tribulation and we are still enduring as if we are keeping the Feast of Tabernacles on a low budget. We are certainly not enjoying seeing our own people suffer and die.

We are almost there, wherever we are heading at this point. If we are travelling toward the Kingdom of God, the super powerful Kingdom of the Jews, maybe we are already standing at its gates at this time. But the sign is written in Hebrew and those that cannot understand Hebrew or the Jewish Holy Bible simply have no way of knowing that.

The members of the New Jerusalem congregation can also suffer economically like most of the people on earth. It is not easy believing you have been chosen when you are suffering in life. But quickly soon God could bring blessing to us who are destined to become part of Kahal Yerushalayim HaChadasha.  

It is now easy searching and looking for the New Jerusalem congregation for the New Jerusalem has become completely Jewish in its beliefs and practices. The New Jerusalem is no longer Christian and not even Messianic. It is not really similar to most of the churches that have gone out of the Worldwide Church of God.

The letter of Yeshua openly states that the ‘synagogue of Satan’ is going to come and worship before the Church in Philadelphia (Revelation 3:9). The only way that the unbelieving Jews can do that is when the remnant church in Philadelphia is Jewish like them. Do not bother with what the Jewish rabbis might say and declare against the believers in Rabbi Yeshua. They, too, shall follow the Jewish people in worship of God and Yeshua HaMashiach when all of the Jews have believed already.

The truth is there is a coming invasion of the land of Israel wherein half of the city of Jerusalem shall be taken. That is the time that Adonai Eloheinu and Rabbi Yeshua would take control of the Jewish people in Israel and all over the world. Armageddon is coming soon in the land of Israel.

It did not just happen naturally that the prophesied Church in Philadelphia has become Jewish in worship and belief. Any one on earth who will keep the commandments of God and follow the true teachings of Yeshua shall become like that. The New Jerusalem is destined to follow and keep all the commandments of God written in the Torah of Moses.

The Jewish people wear crown on their heads for God has made them His royal priesthood—priests and kings. We are wearing kippa, yarmulka or skull cap on our head for that is what Yeshua is referring to in verse 11 that we should not lose. We have to hold onto it. We are the priests of the Most High God and according to the Law of Moses, the priests of God must always have a covering on their head like a crown no matter what happens.

RABBINICAL JUDAISM

 

 

Unbelieving Orthodox Jews (pic courtesy of Dr. Eric Bernardo)

 

The religion of Judaism that the world knows today is not the religion of Judaism in our Holy Bible. God had chosen the Levites and the priests as the spiritual leaders of the people of Israel. But in the modern religion of Judaism called Rabbinical Judaism or Rabbinism, it is the Jewish rabbis that serve as the spiritual guides and leaders of the Jewish people. The Jewish rabbis, or shall we say, the Pharisees like the Sadducees Party, have rejected and denied Yeshua as their Promised Messiah. That is like denying God the Father that sent Rabbi Yeshua to save the Jews who are under the Law.

There is a reason why God had permitted the second Temple to be destroyed by the Romans. There is a rationale behind the continuous destruction that the Jewish people are going through for two thousand years now.

Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity. The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us. Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest” (Micah 3:9-12).  

The Jewish people of Rabbinical Judaism have denied God and His Son. It is just proper for Rabbi Yeshua to regard their worship as the worship in the synagogue belonging to Satan the Devil. Somehow the Jewish people have unintentionally become the adversaries of God today.

The Jewish people of Rabbinical Judaism though they are physically Jews are not really Jewish before the eyes of God spiritually. As I stated earlier Paul was referring to the unbelieving Jews, when he wrote, “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God” (Romans 2:28-29, KJV).

It is not a sin to be Jewish today. What is sinful is when you do not keep all the things written in the Law of Moses and you still think of yourself as a Jew. When a Jew sins before the eyes of God, he lost his holiness or his Jewishness. The unbelieving Jews are not really keeping the Torah utterly on account of their rejection of Jesus. But no Gentile or Christian today can enter the Kingdom of God without the guidance and help of the Jewish rabbis concerning the Torah of Moses.

Before God and Yeshua HaMashiach, Jewishness is not only by physical appearance, or by skin and clothing, but by the heart and mind. The Law of Moses must dwell within the mind and heart of a Jew and should be seen outside as well. Most important of all, a real Jew must follow and obey God. He should accept and not deny the Heavenly One that God the Father has sent to redeem the people of Israel from their sin.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zechariah son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar” (Matthew 23:27-35, KJV).

The Jewish rabbis today are the modern descendants of the Pharisees of the first century CE. Rabbinical Judaism continuously rejects Yeshua the Christ as their Promised Messiah for they believe what the Roman Catholic Church and the rest of the Christian people are claiming. They thought Yeshua was truly the founder of the false religion of Christianity. The Jewish rabbis teach and admonish the Jewish people to deny and reject the Jewishness of Yeshua HaMashiach. The Jews are instructed not to read the New Testament writings, for they erroneously assume that will make the Jewish people forsake the Law of Moses.

The sin of the Jewish father is clearly apparent when we consider the book titled ‘Kosher Jesus,’ written by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and released on February 1, 2012. Two Jewish rabbis, namely Rabbi Jacob Immanuel Schochet and Rabbi Rabbi Yitzchok Wolf, immediately condemned the book that shows Yeshua was a Torah observing Jews and even go as far as having Rabbi Boteach excommunicated. These are the kind of rabbis that get the Jewish people condemned by God for destruction.

They are disputing the fact that Yeshua had kept the Law of Moses faithfully as a Jewish rabbi and as a priest anointed by God.

So what does our Lord God think of the people or the Jewish rabbis doing that?

Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus (Yeshua) is the Christ (Messiah in Hebrew)? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father. He who confesses the Son has the Father also” (insertion in italics by the writer, 1 John 2:22-23, RSV).

Whosoever denies Yeshua as the Son of God, denies also the Father and that is exactly what the unbelieving Jews of Rabbinical Judaism are doing in their non-acceptance of Yeshua as our Promised Messiah. They are also denying our God the Father and if they do not have the Father, who are they with right now? Who is the God that they have right now?

Is it right for us to say that they are with Satan the Devil in spite of the fact that they are keeping the Torah and many traditions of Judaism?

They are wrong about Yeshua of Nazareth. They are wrong in the counting of the Omer that leads to Shavuot, the Day of Pentecost. They are wrong in their observance of some of the commandments of God. But, without them we will never know God and the Torah. Without the rabbis and sages of Rabbinical Judaism we will never know how to observe many of our Jewish traditions and other religious customs and practices. We cannot do without our unbelieving Jewish brethren and if they are, in fact, “the synagogue of Satan” then they are going to discover and accept Yeshua quickly soon.

Rabbi Yeshua loves the Jewish congregation of Philadelphia for they are keeping the Torah of Moses and also following the true teachings of Yeshua the Son of Yosef and Miryam.

Concerning the difference between the prophesied two synagogues of Satan, JFB Commentary says, “I will make--Greek present, "I make," literally, "I give" (see on Revelation 3:8). The promise to Philadelphia is larger than that to Smyrna. To Smyrna the promise was that "the synagogue of Satan" should not prevail against the faithful in her: to Philadelphia, that she should even win over some of "the synagogue of Satan" to fall on their faces and confess God is in her of a truth. Translate, "(some) of the synagogue." For until Christ shall come, and all Israel then be saved, there is but "a remnant" being gathered out of the Jews "according to the election of grace." This is an instance of how Christ set before her an "open door," some of her greatest adversaries, the Jews, being brought to the obedience of the faith. Their worshipping before her feet expresses the convert's willingness to take the very lowest place in the Church, doing servile honor to those whom once they persecuted, rather than dwell with the ungodly” (JFB Commentary on Revelation 3:9, e-sword software).

The Jewish people are going to see and believe that God is working in the New Jerusalem congregation. They will understand that God really love this particular religious group that returned to the true religion of Judaism. Whatever might come to pass, there will be a New Jerusalem congregation that shall fulfill the prophecy about the prophesied church in Philadelphia.

The synagogue of Satan or its members are converted and circumcised in contrast to the Christian people on earth for if they are not, why is it written that God will no longer allow the uncircumcised or those who are not really converted to become part of the Church in the wilderness (Acts 7:38).

We must not forget the fact that a satanic cult often claims their group are the only one that will be saved. The New Jerusalem belongs to all of the Jewish people and to all of the faithful and true believers in Yeshua HaMashiach. Yeshua is the head of the Church or Congregation and the body is composed of the true and faithful disciples of Yeshua the Christ. When the right arm of the body receives salvation, the rest of the body shall also be saved.

Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean” (Isaiah 52:1, KJV).

God has promised to protect the Church in Philadelphia from false brethren and from harm today. The members of the ‘synagogue of Satan’ that converted into the religion of Judaism through the New Testament Church during the Smyrna era were not really converted and they remained uncircumcised. They were the Gentile people that accepted and believed in Yeshua the Christ. During the eras of Ephesus and Smyrna the Body of Believers was Jewish and part of the religion of Judaism. The Gentile converts that did not keep the Law of Moses at that time became part of the Church that has started the Christian religion. They later became known as the Roman Catholic Church—the remnant of the Church of Ephesus.

During the era of Smyrna, it is very clear to the Romans that the so-called Christian Churches were Jewish, even if they were not worshipping God like the Jewish people. Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah and His apostles and disciples that were headquartered in Jerusalem were all Jewish. Consequently, that was how the Christians in Rome were perceived by the Romans as well. Thus, the synagogue of Satan in Rome whose members were calling their own selves as Christians, falsely declared themselves as Jews even though they were only pretending to be. They were uncircumcised and that is what God is telling us that He will prevent from coming into His Church in the wilderness in this end of time.

However, history shows that most of the Christians in Rome in the era of Smyrna were of different brand. They followed the wicked Bishops in Rome and were not part of the Jewish congregation based in Smyrna that were being led by Polycarp and Polycrates. The Christians in Rome had originated from the gnostic group of Simon the Sorcerer that Paul of Tarsus had struck blind.

God will even forbid from coming to the Holy Nation of Israel all of the Gentile and uncircumcised people on earth like what happened when the people of Israel had gone out of Egypt during Exodus time. The people of Israel had committed sin before God in the wilderness because of those uncircumcised and unclean Gentiles that had joined them when they came out of Egypt.

The members of the New Jerusalem congregation have a duty and responsibility to ward off and prevent the unconverted people on earth from being a part the Children of Israel unless they repent, live and worship God like the Torah-observant Jewish people on earth.

Being Jewish is one of the proofs that those that believe in God and Yeshua the Christ are truly Philadelphians for the simple reason that the people belonging to the Synagogue of Satan will not consider worshiping with the people on earth that are not really Jewish or even ‘wolves in sheep clothing.’

Most of the things that Yeshua HaMashiach had transmitted and conveyed in His letter to the Church in Philadelphia have already found their fulfillment on the New Jerusalem congregation. If you are interested in joining the New Jerusalem Congregation, you must keep and love all the laws, ordinances, judgments, statutes and commandments that are written in the Torah of Moses.

THE PROPHESIED ‘FATHERS’

 

 

The prophesied Jewish Fathers

 

And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers; lest I come and smite the land with utter destruction” (Malachi 4:6).

The prophetic ‘fathers’, as we can see from the verse above do not love the children for reason that is not stated. We can also see that the children of these prophetic ‘fathers’ are not showing their love and affection to their ‘fathers.’ Jewish traditions show us that there are many ways we can interpret biblical prophecy besides its dual fulfillment.

There are many religious people that look at the last verse in the book of Malachi in a very literal manner. They apply it to Elijah the prophet that is believe in many religious circle will appear again on earth to usher the appearance of the Promised Messiah of God to the people of Israel. The members and the ministers of the Worldwide Church of God that steadfastly follow the doctrines taught by Worldwide Church of God under the leadership of Herbert W. Armstrong claimed its founder is the end of time fulfillment of Elijah the prophet.

But that is being refuted by some people that claimed Mr. Armstrong did not fulfill the last prophetic verse in the book of Malachi. They said his children became estranged to him at the time of his death in January 16, 1986. Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong had no loved for Garner Ted Armstrong and Garner Ted was rebellious to his father, even to the point of maligning and destroying utterly the image of his father by spreading a rumor of incestuous affair between his father and his sister named Dorothy.

But what if the fathers and the children in the last verse of the book of Malachi have a very different meaning and interpretation?

Yeshua warns His faithful disciples in the gospel book of Matthew not to carry the title of ‘father’ or ‘fathers.’ In the Roman Catholic Church the Catholic bishops and priests are being regarded and called as fathers. Earlier in the history of Rabbinical Judaism, the Jewish spiritual leaders known today as rabbis were also referred to as ‘fathers.’

Can we consider that what Rabbi Yeshua had said in Matthew 23 has underlying relevance to the prophecy in Malachi 4:6?

But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven” (Matthew 23:8-9, RSV).

Simply put, Yeshua prophetically warned us in these verses not to consider our faith and religion as part of Rabbinical Judaism.

During the time of Rabbi Yeshua, the teachers of the Law like the Pharisees and the scribes were being called ‘rabbis’ and ‘fathers’ at the same time. Christianity had just adopted the title of ‘father’ or ‘papa’ from Judaism and some other pagan religions, and that is the reason why the Roman Catholic priests are being called ‘fathers’ today. The fact is, spiritually speaking, we can regard as our fathers too the leaders of our religion that are guiding us to the true knowledge of God and helping us to become perfect and holy. But we should not called them ‘fathers’ directly for we already have two fathers in heaven according to our Holy Bible.

In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes. And there was a young man out of Bethlehem-judah of the family of Judah, who was a Levite, and he sojourned there. And the man departed out of the city from Bethlehem-judah to sojourn where he could find a place: and he came to mount Ephraim to the house of Micah, as he journeyed. And Micah said unto him, Whence comest thou? And he said unto him, I am a Levite of Bethlehem-judah, and I go to sojourn where I may find a place. And Micah said unto him, Dwell with me, and be unto me a father and a priest, and I will give thee ten shekels of silver by the year, and a suit of apparel, and thy victuals. So the Levite went in” (Judges 17:6-10, KJV).

The Levitical priest is also being regarded as father in the days of the Judges of Israel. The Levites were the appointed priests of our God and that is the reason why they were being called as ‘father’ beside their legal title of priests or kohanim. The Levitical priests are the fathers and the children of Israel from the other tribes are the children, which is what Malachi 4:6 is prophesying about. If these two groups will not mend their ways and love one another God will smite the earth with a curse. And God is doing that already on earth for at this time (September, 2020) we are already in the Great Tribulation.

The Jewish rabbis, even though they are the spiritual guide of the Jewish people today in the modern religion of Judaism are not really the fathers or the priests appointed by God for the prophetic ‘children’ of Israel. Under the Torah they have no right in usurping the authority and position of the priests of the Most High God, which by the way have been given and transferred to the true disciples of Rabbi Yeshua. The members of The New Jerusalem congregation are now the divinely appointed priests of the Most High God if they are truly righteous in the eyes of God.

There is a war that occurred between the temple priests and the Pharisees during the time of Yeshua. When the temple of God in Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans the Kohanim and the Levites disappeared. On account of that the Pharisees and the scribes of the Law had won as the spiritual guides of Israel by default in that war. The true disciples of Rabbi Yeshua are supposed to be the replacement of the priests or Kohanim but many of them are being held captive in the religion of Christianity and could not do the commission that Rabbi Yeshua has given His disciples to do.

In Revelation 3:9, Yeshua said He will show to a group of people that He loves the members of true prophesied Church in Philadelphia. We could not really discern and interpret clearly how Yeshua will show His love to the members of The New Jerusalem congregation. But the Holy Bible does not hide from us how the true disciples of Yeshua can show their love to their Lord and Master, even to our Most High God.

How do you think God and Yeshua HaMashiach will show the world in general that they love the true Philadelphians?

Take a note what Yeshua had spoken to His true disciples.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.

If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you” (John 15:4-16, ESV).

The members of the prophesied remnant Church in Philadelphia are keeping all the commandments of God and the testimony of Rabbi Yeshua. They are fully aware that the true disciples of Yeshua HaMashiach are supposed to be Jewish, spiritually and physically. Any one on earth who starts keeping all the things written in the Law of Moses will soon realize that he or she will be living like the Jewish people. That is something that the Christian people on earth find distasteful and truly revolting.

If we abide with Yeshua we will bear much fruit. Whatever we ask of God we will get because Rabbi Yeshua loves all of us. What the Philadelphians do not have right now they will receive soon if they are the true Philadelphians for Rabbi Yeshua is going to show to all of the brethren that He indeed loves the remnant of the Church in Philadelphia.

That is one of the ways that true Philadelphians will know and realize that they are the true Philadelphians when it starts to happen that whatever they ask of God, God shall give it to them. In much the same way even if God or Adonai will give us anything we ask in the name of Rabbi Yeshua, we will not really know the true depth of the love of God for us when we do not really believe and ask.

God has given the true Philadelphians that power, or that blessing, but if they do not believe that they have the power and they do not use the power, there won’t be any opportunity for God and Yeshua HaMashiach to manifest their love.

"Before Yeshua HaMashiach incarnated into flesh, He first played the role of the God of Israel in the Old Testament. We learned of the existence of God the Father in the New Testament writings when Yeshua revealed that He has a father in heaven while he was on earth during His ministry.

THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN

 

In our deep examination of the letter of Rabbi Yeshua to the Church in Philadelphia, verse by verse, we learned the true interpretation of Revelation 3:9. Many bible commentators and Christian Church leaders have erroneously interpreted this verse without the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. They often spiritualize many literal and prophetic verses that simply state what is very obvious to those that can see and understand clearly.

It is written, “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee” (Revelation 3:9, KJV).

The wicked leaders and members of the Churches of God frequently label and slander the former members of their Church as belonging to the prophesied ‘synagogue of Satan.’ They do that to psyche out the members of their Church from fellowshipping with the brethren that are no longer with their Church. For instance, in the Philadelphia Church of God, Gerald Flurry taught the delusional members of his own Christian Church organization that all the members and ex-members of the defunct Worldwide Church of God that are not part of their Church belong to the prophesied ‘synagogue of Satan.’ He told them to avoid the ‘others’ at all cost for they are spiritually leprous. The truth is Gerald Flurry has transformed his Church organization into a satanic cult, which is the reason why many of its members have already left.

On the other hand, the born-again Christians believe the people that say they are Jews but are not physically born Jews are the ‘synagogue of Satan.’ Many religious people presumably thought all the Jewish people are white in the color of their skin. It was Paul that taught us a physically born Jew who is Jewish in his or her outward appearance does not have a birthright access to the Kingdom of God if their inner faith is not right.

Lots of Christian people have assumed today that Paul hated the Jews because of what he had written in his letter. Many wicked Christians believe a Gentile can become a Jew spiritually if he or she believes in Rabbi Yeshua.

For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God” (Romans 2:28-29, NKJV).

Consider this. If an unbelieving Jews who keeps Torah is being called by Paul as a non-Jew, how can a moronic Christian who despises the true teachings of God in the Torah can receive praise from God at all. There were many Jews in Rome during the days of Paul that rejected Yeshua as their Promised Messiah. Paul was involved in a controversy with the believing Jews that keep the Torah when he wrote the preceding verses.

No one should accept and take the letters of Paul as an established doctrine in the New Testament Church of God. Paul belonged to the Pharisees Party and his teachings and writings reflect the faith and doctrinal belief of the Pharisees, known today as the Orthodox Jewish rabbis.

You would not be able to find an Orthodox Jewish rabbi who would teach that God had given the Law of Moses for the Gentile people to keep. Paul said in his letters that the Gentile converts are not under the Law of Moses for that same reason. Paul had the mindset of the members of the Pharisees’ party.

Isn’t it Paul who taught us that women should keep quiet and not speak in the place of worship on Sabbath day?

Yeshua did not start the new religion known as Christianity today so the women and the homosexuals can serve as Church Ministers and Pastors, even as Jewish rabbis, before the members of the congregation. Yeshua ben-Yosef ve-Miryam remains a Jew up to this time, and so were Paul and the rest of the apostles and disciples of Rabbi Yeshua.

Who are the people on earth today that Yeshua is calling and regarding as the synagogue of Satan in Revelation?

Are they as evil as Satan the Devil or is the term ‘synagogue of Satan’ only a prophetic term or a means of identification?

Didn’t Yeshua call Peter His chief apostle, Satan, when Peter said something contrary to the purpose of God?

From that time on, Yeshua began making it clear to his talmidim that he had to go to Yerushalayim and endure much suffering at the hands of the elders, the head cohanim and the Torah-teachers; and that he had to be put to death; but that on the third day, he had to be raised to life. Kefa took him aside and began rebuk ing him, "Heaven be merciful, Lord! By no means will this happen to you!" But Yeshua turned his back on Kefa, saying, "Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle in my path, because your thinking is from a human perspective, not from God's perspective"” (Matthew 16:21-23, CJB)!

An idiot can use the verses above to show that Peter is Satan or an adversary of God. But that is not really the case here.

Peter was not really Satan the Adversary of God. But Peter had become an adversary of God when he tried at that time to hinder and stop Yeshua from fulfilling His mission on earth. In Matthew 16:23, the word ‘Satan’ is translated from the Greek word ‘satanas’, which is # 4567 in Strong’s Concordance. Though 4567 (also #4566) means the ‘accuser’ or the Devil, it is also defined as the adversary of both God and men (ISBE).

When men hinder and obstruct the great plan of salvation of God on the whole of mankind, not only on the people of Israel, they become little ‘satan’ or the human adversaries of God under the influence and possession of the biggest Satan the Devil, that old and ancient Serpent (Revelation 12:9).

John the beloved had shown us how some people can become the adversary of God like Satan the Devil who is the father of all the liars on earth. Men have the proclivity to act contrary to God’s plan.

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us: for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also” (1 John 2:18-23, KJV).

It is written that whoever does not accept today that Yeshua is the Promised Messiah of God has the spirit of an antichrist (1 John 4:3). Based on what John the Beloved had written, the Jewish people who say that Yeshua is not the Messiah of God are the children of Satan the Devil even if they are keeping the Law of Moses, even if they are Jews.

Moreover the religious but very wicked people on earth that are saying they are Jews, like the Messianic Jews, but they are not really Jewish in the religious sense of the word can also be considered as the ‘synagogue of Satan.’ The Messianic Jews are the prophesied ‘synagogue of Satan’ in Revelation 3:9 in contrast to the ‘synagogue of Satan’ in Revelation 2:9, which happens to be the ultra-orthodox Jews in Eretz Yisrael. Most of the congregations belonging to the Messianic Jewish movement worship the Trinitarian-concept of God just like the God of the Roman Catholic Church and majority of the Christian Churches all over the world.

The prophesied ‘synagogue of Satan’ in Revelation 3:9 has the name of Satan for they worship a different God than what the Holy Bible really describes as one God. God is one and He is not composed of three persons like the three hypostases of God known as the Trinity. The Messianic Jews worship God on Sabbath Day like the Jewish people but they are not keeping the commandments of God written in the Law of Moses. They also have mistaken the God of Israel as a Trinity. Most of them are formerly born-again Christians that worship Jesus Christ with a rock band on Sunday. When they adopted the Hebrew religion, the concept of the God of the Christian people known as Trinity remains well-integrated in their concept of the God of the Bible.

Trinity is one of the doctrinal teachings of Satan the Devil and most of the Messianic Jewish congregations on earth worship God as a Trinity. They called themselves Jews but they are also saying and claiming they are not really Jews but goyim or Gentiles. They have no sense of history when it comes to the Jewish people and the religion of Judaism.

The Messianic Jewish movement has gone Jewish or Hebrew only when it comes to language or words. Physically and spiritually speaking, their religion or faith is similar to the religion of ‘born-again’ Christianity. Messianic Jews also hate the word ‘church’ because that is how the Jews regard the word ‘church.’ Apparently they used the term synagogue when it comes to their place of worship. They use the word ‘assembly’ or ‘congregation’ when they refer to their group for that is what the Jewish people also believe.

But according to Smith’s Bible Dictionary the word ‘church’, ‘is generally said to be from the Greek kuriakon, "belonging to the Lord". But the derivation has been too hastily assumed. It is probably connected with kirk, the Latin circus, circulus, the Greek kuklos, (kuklos), because the congregations were gathered in circles’ (from the word ‘church’, Smith’s Bible Dictionary).

During New Testament times, the Jewish people were seated in the synagogues in a circular manner. There are still many Jewish synagogues today whose seats are arranged in a circular manner. The Messianic Jews before they changed the Greek word ‘Christian’ to the Hebrew word ‘messianic’ grew up worshiping in Christian Church buildings whose seats are arranged differently. Also most of the large Jewish synagogues today have a seating arrangement similar to that of the Christian Church buildings, which is the reason why Messianic Judaism has no idea of the origin of the word ‘church.’

The Messianic Jewish congregations are truly the prophesied ‘synagogue of Satan’ of Revelation 3:9 for most of the members of Messianic Jewish groups are non-Jews or goyim. Notice what Rabbi Yeshua said, “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee” (Revelation 3:9, KJV). In the letter of Yeshua HaMashiach to the Church in Philadelphia, He can only be referring to the Messianic Jews of Messianic Judaism, who are mostly goyim or Gentiles.

Now, consider and analyze well what Rabbi Yeshua had said to the ‘synagogue of Satan’ in his letter to the Church in Smyrna.

 “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan” (Revelation 2:9).

The two preceding verses that prophetically speak of the ‘synagogue of Satan’ are referring to two different groups. Notice that the first ‘synagogue of Satan’ is slandering and blaspheming the identity and personality of Yeshua Hamashich while the latter are not really physically Jews and do not blaspheme the personality of Yeshua. The Messianic Jews also worship the promised Messiah of Israel whose true name is Yeshua but their work is against God like the work of Satan the Devil. The Messianic Jews are subtlety converting the Jewish people to the religion of Christianity and turning them against the Torah of Moses. Messianic Judaism is like Christianity that comes in Jewish clothing and speaking in Hebrew language. As it is written, “they are Jews, and are not, but do lie …” (Revelation 3:9.).

If you would like to know clearly the identity of the first ‘synagogue of Satan’ you should read the true interpretation of the prophetic letter of Rabbi Yeshua to the prophesied Church in Sardis. That ‘synagogue of Satan’ is truly blaspheming the promised Messiah of Israel by accusing Yeshua with many false things they invented to malign Christianity or anyone who worship Jesus Christ whose true name is Yeshua HaMashiach.

Briefly, let me discuss here the first ‘synagogue of Satan’ for it refers to the Jewish people who continue to deny and reject Yeshua as their Promised Messiah. Definitely, this ‘synagogue’ are people that are claiming they are Jews but in the eyes of Adonai Eloheinu (Lord our God) they are not really Jews. Most of these Jews are ‘liars’ and they continue to slander Rabbi Yeshua with their many slanderous accusations. It is only the unbelieving Jews of Rabbinical Judaism that have a record to this present time of blasphemy and slander against Rabbi Yeshua.

Remember always that the Jewish people of Rabbinical Judaism are all liars. They erroneous thought they have the right to lie. They believe they can bear false witnesses to other people as long their intention is good. But what they are doing is striving against God for those Jewish rabbis are blind or leaders of the blind that lead the ordinary Jews to the road of perdition.

The people who are part of the synagogue of Satan in the letter to the Church in Smyrna are the unbelieving Jewish people of Rabbinical Judaism. They are still in a state of denial when it comes to Yeshua the Promised Messiah of God. They are the only part of the ‘synagogue of Satan’ that the members of the prophesied remnant of the Church in Smyrna are coming in contact directly now. The prophesied remnant Church of Smyrna is known today as Evangelical Christians or Evangelicals.

The Babylonian Talmud, which happens to be the unspoken Messiah of Rabbinical Judaism, has a content that tells the story of Jesus Christ or Rabbi Yeshua, according to the Jewish sages, in a very bad and negative way. Most of the unbelieving Jewish rabbis today continue to subscribe to the idea that Yeshua is the son of an immoral woman, if they are not claiming there is really no historical evidence that Yeshua HaMashiach exists. 

In his letter to the Philadelphians, Rabbi Yeshua had foretold that people who belong to ‘synagogue of Satan’ shall be worshipping with the New Jerusalem congregation when He returns on earth. Yeshua said, “’I will make them come and worship before’ the Philadelphians for the sin or error of the synagogue of Satan can easily be forgiven.” The ‘synagogue of Satan’ that the New Jerusalem congregation has come into contact can repent easily for they are almost Jewish. The synagogue of Satan in the letter of Rabbi Yeshua to the Church or Congregation in Philadelphia is known as the Messianic Jews of Messianic Judaism.

Do you know that it is so hard to worship God on Sabbath in the Jewish synagogues especially when you are clearly a non-Jew or a Gentile?

Revelation 3:9 is not saying at all that there is a group of people that call themselves Jewish, who will come and worship with the members of the true Church in Philadelphia during their worship. The members of the prophesied remnant of the Church in Philadelphia are going to be composed soon of firstborn children of Israel. The firstborn children of Israel, like the 144,000 first fruits of Mt. Zion, shall become the priests of our Lord God in the Temple of God when Yeshua HaMashiach comes again. So, Yeshua is merely informing us that the Philadelphians are going to serve as the priests of God in the Temple when it is built again.

God and Jesus love the remnant of the Church in Philadelphia, no matter who they are. God through Jesus has made the priests and kings in the Temple of God (Revelation 1:6). All the inhabitants on earth, not only the synagogue of Satan, shall come and worship before the feet of the Philadelphians once Jesus has returned. The possibility that the 144,000 firstfruits or firstborn sons of Mt. Zion is so great for the end-time work of God could suddenly focus upon the Jewish people in Israel.

We must understand the fact that the prophesied Church in Philadelphia is Jewish in faith and religion. That could merely be the reason why all the people that are claiming they are Jewish shall come and worship with them in the Temple. All the Jewish people on earth will become one people again and they will worship God together in the Temple of God as it is prophesied in our Holy Bible.

However there is another explanation to why Yeshua had mentioned the synagogue of Satan in his letter to the Philadelphians.

When the apostasy occurred in the Worldwide Church of God, there are members that sought out the Hebrew roots of our faith in Yeshua HaMashiach and they came in contact with Messianic Jewish groups. It appears to the story related by some people in the way that the followers of Herbert W. Armstrong were being treated disdainfully by the Messianic Jewish group in the diaspora that the ex-members of the Worldwide Church of God are not truly welcome there. They are not being received well by the Messianic Jews in worship especially when it becomes clear that they do not believe in the Trinity besides the other doctrinal beliefs that Herbert W. Armstrong had taught them.

Could that be the reason why Yeshua said in his letter to the Philadelphians that the Messianic Jews shall come in worship later on with the true remnant of the Church in Philadelphia?

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee” (emphasis mine, Revelation 3:9, KJV).

There are many religious groups today that welcome a Jew, a Messianic Jew or someone who thinks of himself as Jew, in their worship so they can consider and think of their group as the true remnant of Philadelphia era. In contrast, the members of the New Jerusalem congregation do not welcome the synagogue of Satan in their worship earlier in 2003, for the members of The New Jerusalem congregation were the one who came in worship with the synagogue of Satan.

Most of us live in isolation and there are many born-again Christian groups that are becoming Messianic in their beliefs. Giving a choice between the first and the latter group of synagogue of Satan, an ex-member of the Worldwide Church of God would opt for the Messianic Jewish group until he or she is told not to come back anymore.
