FATHER OF LIES
Gen. James Green
P OLITICAL ZIONISM and Orthodox Pharisaical Judaism are both Christophobic. They both will side with Christianity/Christians when it benefits them, but are intrinsically hostile towards Jesus and His followers. Judaism’s rabbis are Leftist liberals who act clandestinely, therefore deceiving the Church and nations. But they are the same offspring of the “Father of Lies” Jesus spoke about: “ye are of your father the devil” (Jn. 8:44).
Lying is specifically mentioned as a characteristic of the devil, i.e., Satan. We find this out in Genesis 3:1-6.
In another writing I showed that Jesus cut through their religious hype about God being their Father. Hosea the prophet sums it up well: “And I will not have mercy upon her (Israel’s) children; for they (Israel/Judah) be children of whoredoms” (Hosea 2:4). The whole book of Hosea deals with the unfaithfulness of God’s people. Chapter 14:1 is a plea: “Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.” The very last words of this Old Testament prophet were: “…for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them; BUT THE TRANSGRESSORS SHALL FALL THEREIN” (v. 9).
[Note: Albert Barnes’ notes say about this passage, “...They have stumbled, and still stumble at God the Son, becoming Man, and taking our flesh in the Virgin’s womb; they stumble at the humility of the Crucifixion; they stumble at His placing His Manhood at the Right Hand of God; they stumble at the simplicity, power and condescension, which He uses in the sacraments; they stumble at His giving us His Flesh to eat; they stumble at His forgiving sins freely, and again and again; they stumble at His making us members of Himself, without waiting for our own wills; they stumble at His condescension in using our own acts, to the attainment of our degree of everlasting glory.” I think that is a well-written description of what the Jews did, and currently are doing–“falling in the way,” MTW.]
This was the condition of the “Jews” when Jesus came as a man (God in flesh) to the LOST sheep of the house of Israel. We know that those “fake Jews,” claiming to know God, became extremely HOSTILE towards Jesus and the truth: they were children of the devil!
Why can’t today’s Churches see that the “Jewish” nation is still LOST, REBELLIOUS, PRIDEFUL and full of hostility towards the truth and (true) messengers of the Gospel? The “Jews” of Jesus’ day hurled insults at Him, claiming that they were not born of fornication! (Remember my lesson taken from the Babylonian Talmud—that Jesus’ mother had been a whore; that her paramour had been a Roman soldier called Panthera; and Jesus was the bastard child of this adultery [Found in “Theology For Israel’s Restoration, Pt. 2"]). The “Jews” still hold to this insult even today…and the Church still calls them “God’s Chosen People!” God is DONE with Israel as a race—only by repentance through faith in Jesus Christ can a “Jew” be saved. But today’s Church, and especially the Christian Zionists, are Biblically and intellectually stupid, as well as spiritually dull and deaf. THEY REFUSE TO HEAR AND UNDERSTAND—as did the “Jews” in Jesus’ day.
WAS JESUS RIGHT when He called the “Jews” children of the devil? He told them that their father was Satan/the devil. John 8:44 plainly says that the devil had two main characteristics: murder and lying, both of which we find in Judaism…even today!
Today’s Judaism/Zionism continues to LIE about their fallen state, and continues to murder the truth found in the New Testament.
Jesus’ indictment of the “Jews” as children of the devil was based upon truth: they lied about Him and murdered Him!!
Jesus Has A Devil
THESE “JEWS” whom Jesus showed up for the hypocrites they were, turned the argument around: “Then answered the Jews, and said unto Him, ‘Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?’” The “Jews” are masters at playing the “victim” role; here they accuse Jesus of being of the devil...not them.
According to Jesus, falsehood has a father, and that father has spiritual children [He was referring to the Jews there in John 8:44]. Of course there are exceptions to that, and it was the repentant Jews who became Jesus’ first disciples/converts.
WE NEED TO PRAY THAT “JEWS” IN THIS GENERATION WILL START A HOLY REVOLUTION AGAINST ZIONISM and Talmudic Judaism—leaving their ranks, and evangelizing their people.
Mystery of Iniquity
“LET NO MAN DECEIVE you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thes. 2:3-12).
Deception runs deep in the world today. We have both antichrists and the spirit of Anti-Christ to contend with. I’m not getting into all the teaching OUT THERE concerning “that day” (v. 3), for most of them are rooted and grounded in the false teachings of Premillennialism (discussed in other articles and also in our trilogy on the “Rapture” question). The “Jews” of Jesus’ day were under the Babylonian Talmud (BT) teachings of the elders (“Tradition of men” is what it is called in the Bible)—this is why Jesus called Israel, “the LOST sheep of the House of Israel.”
Second Thess. cpt. 2 discusses, “the day of Christ is at hand” (v. 2), and “that man of sin, the son of perdition” (v. 3), and “the mystery of iniquity” (v. 7). Paul says that this “mystery” is already at work. The “MYSTERY” is the work of Anti-Christ, which IS the NATURE OF THE RELIGION OF ORTHODOX JUDAISM since its inception in the first century AD—to personify Anti-Christ.
Throughout the entire Church age, a “mystery of iniquity” has been at work; evil has progressively grown worse. Just take the U.S. as an example of this iniquity, both physically and spiritually. The last 100 years has seen such abysmally satanic sinfulness that it is shocking! Scurrilities are totally out of control: lying and murder, besides gross indecency, is the order of the day. Life is cheap. Truth has practically been banned from this nation.
Apostasy in the Church reflects this “mystery of iniquity,” reaching new heights every decade. Paul declares that there will be a great FALLING AWAY, which, no doubt is taking place.
After the Working of Satan
I BELIEVE the apostate “Jews” will have a large part to play in all this, maybe even center stage. They have been working iniquity for centuries, especially in finances and wars. Some have taught that Paul was referring to the Roman Catholic Church, but Talmudic Judaism has been working iniquity longer than the RCC. I personally don’t care who Paul was referring to, iniquity will abound, along with “strong delusion” (v. 11). As I write, the majority of Churches still believe the LIE/DECEPTION that the “Jews” are God’s special people—even though they are pagans and haters of Christ...waiting for another Messiah to appear.
I ask, where did the “Jews” who perished in AD 70 go—to Heaven or Hell?
What about all the “Jews” who have lived and died over the centuries (2,000 years) in a state of UNBELIEF, where did they go at death: Heaven or Hell? If to Hell (as I believe!), then they were not/are not “special.”
Can we not accept the stark fact that Judaism has continued in its anti-goyimitic/anti-Christian hatred over the centuries? Why would God bless/honor such a people when He doesn’t do it for other pagan nations?
But who is “pagan?” The Talmudic “Jew” Rabbi MOSES MAIMONIDES, SAYS THAT EVERY GENTILE RELIGION IS ILLICIT, INCLUDING CHRISTIANITY (see “Epistle to Yemen,” 1952, pp. 12-15; and Hilchot Avodah Zara 9:4).
The 15th Century Spanish-Judaic Talmudist Isaac Abarbanel boldly wrote that God would wipe out Christians for their transgressions! HA! Seems like the “Jews” have been under God’s wrath for centuries—this is why they continue to elicit pity.
According to Maimonides’ Principles (the introduction), Maimonides spent 12 years extracting every decision and law from the (Satan-inspired) Talmud, in which he arranged into 14 systematic volumes (p. 5). Was this guy a special “Jew” unto God?
When this Christ-hater finished his antichrist work (completed in AD 1180), it was called the Mishnah Torah. He taught that Christians should be killed under certain and proper circumstances. Muhammad, prophet of Islam, did the same—death to pagans if they rejected the prophet or his message. The “people of the book” (“Jew”/Christians) were offered 2 choices: accept Islam and become one of them, or, reject Islam and pay taxes the rest of your life—being a second-class citizen forever. If the “Jew”/Christian rejected Islam altogether, death was their reward.
As I have studied the Islamic Quran/Hadith for years, I see that Islam has picked up many of the “Jewish” traits and laws. When Islam is in an inferior position, they are “nicer;” when in the dominant role, they are harsh, unloving, and murderous. The same goes for the “Jews.”
History Repeats Itself ?
IF ONE WOULD have any doubt of the Jews’ subversive activity involving the government of yesteryear or today, I would recommend a consideration of Alexandra, wife of Alexander “the Great.” Since the Jews were so conniving and manipulating to the authorities even centuries ago, why not today (keep in mind, even though the “Jews” today are not bloodline Jews, the spirit of antichrist is the same!)? JOSEPHUS RELATES THIS ACCOUNT OF THE PLOTTED AND EXECUTED DOMINATION OF THE JEWS PERFECTLY:
“Alexandra reigns nine years, during which time the Pharisees were the real rulers of the nation.
1. NOW Alexander left the kingdom to Alexandra his wife, and depended upon it that the Jews would now very readily submit to her, because she had been very averse to such cruelty as he had treated them with, and had opposed his violation of their laws, and had thereby got the good-will of the people. Nor was he mistaken as to his expectations.
...this woman kept the dominion, by the opinion that the people had of her piety...and cast those men out of the government that offended against their holy laws...
2. And now the Pharisees joined themselves to her, to assist her in the government...Alexandra hearkened to them to an extraordinary degree, as being herself a woman of great piety towards God. But these Pharisees artfully insinuated themselves into her favor by little and little, and became themselves the REAL ADMINISTRATORS of the public affairs: they banished and reduced whom they pleased; they bound and loosed [men] at their pleasure; and, to say all at once, they had the enjoyment of the royal authority, whilst the expenses and the difficulties of it belonged to Alexandra...while she governed other people, and the Pharisees governed her” (“The Wars of the Jews,” Flavius Josephus, Ch. 5, Secs. 1, 2).
The Dictionary (WordWeb 2007) says of Josephus, “Jewish general who led the revolt of the Jews against the Romans and then wrote a history of those events (AD 37-100).”
Seems to me like Josephus would have really good perspective of Jewish involvement! The Jews all throughout history have sought to undermine and control all monies and powers. We see the Jews usurping power today in the US government, as they have in numerous accounts in other nations in the past. When will it end? That depends upon when people will get tired of the Jewish shadow-dictatorship!
On judgment day, one will not be able to make the excuse to God, “I was serving you by serving the Jews!” Serving God is serving Jesus Christ, not Christ-haters! If we say we follow Jesus, LET’S WORSHIP HIM...and not respect the religions of those who reject Him as Messiah. ~MTW
