We have seen how our bible have come down to us in our own language and just how blessed we are to have such a wonderful heavenly father and lord Jesus whose guidance led to different ones to produce it for us.

In order to thank them for this wonderful gift we now need to read it and ask for guidance to understand it because not only does it give us our history but it contains information for our future.

When you first open its pages you might think, this is far too hard to read and understand, but if you step back and think of the events that, it refers to, it may help you to see it in a different light. For instance, Jesus taught in story form, illustrations, not because people were child-like in those days, but because it is a good way to teach. Not heavy or full of facts and details which would bog anyone down, but most people will remember stories.

So if you look upon the bible as a large story of events I am sure it will help you to understand it better. For instance: ~

In the beginning our lord made the earth to be inhabited by perfect human beings and all the wonderful different animals for them to enjoy and look after. But, amongst his father’s family there were sons who were jealous of this special relationship, and privileges our lord had with his father, one son in particular was so jealous he wanted to spoil things for him and he set himself up in opposition to him.

This spirit son became known as Satan, meaning “resistor”. He may have started out as one of the spirit sons to look after things on the earth to care for the first humans and was eaten up with envy at the praise our lord was receiving. So he put himself in opposition to our lord and this fight will continue until the end.

                                             Satan vss our lord Jesus. 
images (10)He fought in opposition to our lord from the very beginning and he is the father of lies. (John chapter 8v44) He has also been the god over the world since getting our first parents turned out of their paradise home by his evil influence over them. (2nd Corinthians chapter 4v4)

Under his authority things started to go wrong from the very beginning when some of God’s spirit sons came to the earth to join him, we have covered this in other articles of this journal so we shall continue with the outline of the bible.

Satan has caused us nothing but problems and grief ever since he turned Eve’s mind against her husband’s instructions about the tree they were not to eat from and he has influenced our minds in the same way as he did with Eve, as Jesus tells his apostles “Satan has demanded to sift them like wheat” and we know he “entered into Judas to betray Jesus” and also the apostle Peter, when he denied Jesus, this was all down to Satan’s influence. (Luke chapter 22v31-35, 54-62) We have never experienced peace on the earth where as under the kingdom of the Christ we have been promised we will not learn war any more (Isaiah chapter 2v2-4) because his kingdom will be a righteous rulership over the whole of the earth.

The earth became so bad because of the sons of God coming down and marrying the daughters of man producing giants, freaks of nature by mixing spirit souls and earthly souls together (Genesis chapter 6) and causing havoc that a great world-wide flood covered the earth to destroy them and only 8 souls, of our father’s choosing, survived to start the earth over again. Noah, his wife and three sons and their wives. But, not long after this great cleanup Satan started influencing humans yet again and in a short time contaminated the human family once more.

It shows us in Ephesians chapter 6v12.

“For we are not contending against flesh and blood but against the principalities, against the powers against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places”. This too, we have covered in this journal.

In order to preserve some righteous people on the earth, and not have everyone under Satan, our Father decided to preserve a people for his name and promised Abraham to use his seed to do this. He visited Abraham and his grandson Jacob and changed Jacob’s name to Israel instead so that his 12 sons became known as the 12 tribes of Israel. God’s chosen (5)When the time came for our Father to adopt them as his son on the earth they had been in slavery in Egypt for 430 years, so now he was going to show his power to set them free. From now on his people will be under his kingly guidance instead of under Satan. But, this will not stop Satan using his influence on them as we shall see later, after they had been set free.

They ended up in slavery in Egypt because one of Jacob’s sons called Joseph used to have dreams and this upset his brothers so one day while they were tending their fathers sheep the brothers took Joseph and placed him down a dry well, then when traders came by travelling to Egypt they sold Joseph to them who took him down to Egypt and left him (2)Then when a famine arose over the land the brothers were sent down to Egypt to buy food supplies and met up with Joseph once more. The whole family went to Egypt to stay because there was plenty of food for them and by this time Joseph was an important figure.  images (7)This was when Moses came on the scene, God was going to use him as his servant on the earth to visit the Israelite’s to let them know they were going to be set free.

We all know the story of Moses how he was found in the bulrushes as a baby by Pharaoh’s daughter and taken into the palace and brought up by her. He had been placed there and was watched over by Miriam, his sister because a law was issued to the midwives, that no baby boys from the Israelites were to live after their birth because there was too many of them and Miriam knew Pharaoh’s daughter always went there at a certain time of day so she lay in wait to see the event.

When Pharaoh’s daughter   saw him she fell in love with him and wanted to keep him and Miriam came out of hiding and told her that one of the Israelite women would take care of him until he was weaned, became a certain age. This took place so that Moses early days was with his own people before he was taken into the kings palace where he was brought as an Egyptian.

One day Moses saw an Egyptian mistreating an Israelite and he stepped in and killed the Egyptian and because of this act, he had to flee out of Egypt. But now years later he was instructed to go back to Egypt to speak to the Israelites under the direction of the holy spirit after seeing a bush that was burning with flames but was not on fire he went to see this great thing and was spoken to by God.imagesEventually after 10 plagues were brought upon pharaoh because of his reluctance in letting the Israelite’s go free, he eventually sent them away. They fled towards the red sea where they crossed on dry land when Moses opened up a path through the waters with the help of the holy spirit. But when Pharaoh realised all his slave workers were gone, he chased after them with his armies and while they were chasing them through the Red sea on the path of dry land that the holy spirit opened up, the sea came back and drowned them all.

images (5)images (6)                          The Israelites were a stiff-necked people just like the Egyptians and it did not take them long to forget this wonderful escape from Pharaoh’s armies that their complaining started. First they moaned about the food, then, it was the water that it was too bitter. Eventually God sent serpents amongst them which bit them and they would die, when they repented he provided a way out for them. He instructed Moses to make a copper serpent and hang it high on a tree so that when the people were bitten they were to look at the copper serpent and get saved. It was not long before their complaining became too hard for Moses and this eventually caused him to lose the right to enter the Promised Land. He was exhausted by their constant complaining.

moses from afar

They finally entered into the promised land after a trek through the wilderness for 40 years because of their rebellious nature, but their constant complaining continued. They now wanted a king they could see just like the nations around them had, so again, they were given a king, whose name was Saul. He became the first earthly king appointed by their God becoming the start of the “kingdom of Judah”.

But again they were not happy. Their second king was David and he made Jerusalem the capital for God’s people, but he was not allowed to build a temple there because he was a man of war so this privilege came down to his son Solomon.

Again, the people were not happy having a king of God’s choosing so this eventually divided the people into two groups, 2 tribes stayed and worshipped in Jerusalem and 10 tribes worshipped on the mountain in Samaria becoming the Samaritans in Jesus day and forming their own king. Both groups stayed under the laws of Moses but the 2 tribe group’s hatred towards the Samaritans were still strong even when Jesus came to the earth in the first century.

Their hostility and complaining towards their God eventually caused him to hand them over to the gentile nations.

And in 605 BCE they were handed over to serve the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar for 70 years as a punishment. They were told through the prophets that had been sent to them that if they did not subject themselves to the king of Babylon, he would send Nebuchadnezzar back to them and he will destroy their temple and their city and it shall lay desolate for a further 70 years.

It was in the first year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign that he took the city of Jerusalem in 605 BC and this was the year he took Daniel and his three other companions of his captive. They were young and handsome and they were to serve in the king’s palace. It was the order of the king that they should eat the rich fine food from the king’s table but Daniel requested they continued to eat their own food instead and this was granted them. It soon became known that Daniel had special gifts and was used by the king.

The Israelite’s really were a stiff-necked people and they refused to become subject to the king, so he did return and the temple and the city was totally destroyed. History tells us it was a long drawn out siege lasting a few years and the people were eventually starved into submission so that they ate their own children. (Jeremiah chapter 19v1-13) This happened in the kings 19th year after he first took the city and it this was 11th year of Zedekiah whom Nebuchadnezzar made king in the city. 586 BCE, and the city shall remain desolate until 516 BCE.

So even though Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians, Cyrus the king made a decree for the Israelites to return to Jerusalem in 538. In fact two other decrees were issued by king Artaxerxes,

The first one was for Ezra the scribe to go to Jerusalem in 454 BC (Ezra chapter 7v1-14) and the second decree was for Nehemiah to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the walls in 445 BC. (Nehemiah chapter 13v6-30)

When Ezra arrived in Jerusalem to read the laws of Moses he found that while Israel had been in Babylon they had broken the laws of their God and the written laws of Moses by marrying foreign women and had children by them, and even taking them all back to Jerusalem with them. He needed to reform them if they were to receive God’s blessing again. So he gathered them all together and told them they had to send their foreign woman and children back and cleanse the land of Jerusalem once again. Pure worship had to be restored ready for their Messiah who was prophesied to come otherwise the lineage records would have been contaminated and not accurate.

This they did but although they were now able to return to their land and their city of Jerusalem, they will remain under the gentile nations until God’s kingdom under out lord Jesus takes over the whole of the earth. The kingdom of Judah ended in 605 BC. It is interesting to note this was a question the apostles asked Jesus when he was here “are you going to restore the kingdom to us at this time”? (Acts chapter 1v6-9)

Showing how important it was to keep the lineage pure from King David to the Messiah is brought out in Matthew chapter 1v1-18 and Luke chapter 3v23-38 and this was why they had to send all their foreign wives and children away. Both Joseph and Mary were from the Royal lineage. This brings us to the time the messiah was to be revealed.

When Jesus was about 30 years of age he went to John the Baptist to get baptised by him in the river Jordan, and when he came up out of the water a voice from heaven declared “this is my beloved son with whom I am well pleased” (Matthew chapter 3v16,17) this is also backed up with John’s account in chapter 1v26-34.

Even though our heavenly father handed the rebellious nation of Israel over to be ruled by the gentile nations he kept his promise to send them a Messiah, one who would fulfil the laws and free them from the written laws of Moses. But true to form they rejected his son Jesus who rode into Jerusalem as their new king of Judah and had him killed. In fact when they were addressed by Pilate “behold your king” the chief priests actually declared to the Roman’s “we have no king but Caesar”. (John chapter 19v14-16

images (17)        Can you imagine just how hurt this rebellion made their God feel after sending his only son to the earth to help them get free of the written laws and restrictions for them to reject his son and well as himself. It is no wonder he cast them off.

The Jews were cast off as God’s nation of people at the death of his son, it shows when Jesus died the curtain dividing the inner sanction where the Holy spirit dwelt was torn in two showing it no longer contained God’s spirit. (Matthew chapter 27v51 – 55) The city remained in favour for the gathering of the first-fruits of the kingdom for a further 3 ½ years, then in 36 CE the gentiles were invited to inherit the kingdom through faith in our lord. Thus ending Jerusalem and its temple as the holy city of God.

From now on, the city of Jerusalem, the nations of Israel will become the “spiritual nation of Israel” they will make up a new city of Jerusalem. This spiritual city will be worldwide and its church inside the city will be those who make up the body of our lord. The apostles were told after Jesus resurrection not to leave Jerusalem until after their adoption by the Holy Spirit. Acts chapter 1v6, 2v1-21.

Just as the temple was the focal point of the ancient city of Jerusalem so too the church will be the focal point inside the spiritual city and although this will be a world-wide spiritual city and church, the bible indicates it will be ONE religious group that will make up the city where the church will be taken from. Just as the Jews were one religious group in ancient times.

We also know the temple or body of our Lord will be built up upon him as the chief corner stone and the apostles who make up the 12 foundation stones to the temple or church as it is known today. What exactly does this mean?

The answer is in fact given to us by Jesus himself in a prayer to his father relayed to us in John chapter 17v6, 20-24 where Jesus acknowledges that his apostles were given to him by his father for the beginning of the spiritual temple of his body. He shows in verse 20 “I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word”. Yes! Through the word of the apostles as the foundation stones to the temple “their teachings”.

 Ephesians chapter 2v13-22 says “But now in Christ Jesus you were once far off have been brought near in the blood of Christ. For he is our peace who has made us both one (the Jews and the gentiles) and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances (the written laws of Moses) that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross thereby bringing the hostility to an end….And through him we both have access to one spirit to the father….built upon the foundations of the apostles and prophets Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the lord in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place for God in the spirit”.

 This gives us guidance as to where the true body, or church, of our lord can be found today, it will be those who uphold the true teachings of Jesus and his apostles. Also it is only the church members that are inside the city that make up his body and not the city itself. Just as the temple was inside the city of Jerusalem.

So it would be useless looking at a religion on the earth today as a whole because just like ancient Jerusalem in the 1st century, it may over the years have become corrupt. Remember Jesus words “many are invited but few are chosen” so many are invited to be in the city and even worship in the temple but not all will be chosen only a few of them will be of the chosen. (Matthew chapter 22v14)

Again, Jesus said “by their fruits you will know them” he also said they would be hated by everyone because of their stand for the true teachings of Jesus and his apostles just as he and the apostle Paul had been. And here Jesus was not just referring to those INSIDE the city because the true church members of Christ’s body will not go along with false teachings in the city, they would be persecuted and kicked out. In fact the apostle Paul even chastised Peter on occasion when he was not keeping to Jesus words and straying off course due to his affliction, fear of man. (Galatians chapter 2v11-17. Matthew chapter 7v20. John chapter 17v14)

Those that make up the body of our lord today will stand out as being totally different from the world of religious teachings, their teachings are based entirely upon our lord Jesus and his apostles and they will NOT condone any teachings that are wrong. 

For instance these are just a few of the wrong thoughts and teachings today.

1st.   Religions that teach when we die we go to heaven!

This is not correct, Jesus says we are asleep and will wait for the resurrection during his kingdom reign of one thousand years. After all Jesus was in the grave for three days before his resurrection by his father and his friend Lazarus was in the grave four days before being raised up. John chapter 14v3 says “And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself and where I am you may be also”.

Yes! Jesus will return and take them to be with him, they will not go to him at death but he will come again and take them. So this puts paid to all spirit mediums that claim to speak to the dead. They cannot.

2nd.   Religions that teach the kings or wise men visited Jesus in the stable the night he was born!   The Christmas nativity.

This is wrong! The bible accounts show the shepherds were visited by the angels and they visited the stable but the men from the East travelled to Jerusalem by following a star they had seen whilst they were in the East and the report shows this was about two years after he was born and they entered into the “house” where the “young child was with his mother” that was why Herod killed all the baby boys from two years and under from the time he ascertained from the travellers from the East. No mention of how many travellers came from the East only that three different gifts were mentioned. Luke chapter 2v8-20. Matthew chapter 2v1-17. Especially vs 7, 11, 16. This too is covered in this journal under the birth of our lord.

3rd.   Any religion that teach we are under any of the Mosaic laws, for instance the Sabbath or Acts chapter 15v28 with restrictions of foods or blood!

All these teachings are wrong! Jesus fulfilled all the Mosaic laws on his death and freed the Jews completely but they have chosen to remain with them which has alienated them from God. When Peter was shown a vision of unclean food and told to eat, he refused and three times a voice from the heavens told Peter “do not call unclean what God has cleansed”. The three witness bearers were the Holy Spirit speaking these words that all food is now clean to eat and nothing is unclean. Romans chapter 7v6. Acts chapter 10v9-17. Luke chapter 13v1-6 and 16v16.

 4th.   What about religions that address their clergy as “Father”.

This is wrong! Jesus says, “Call no man your father because you have one father who is in heaven. Neither be called master for you have one master the Christ”. Matthew chapter 23v9.

Quite recently the president of the USA addressed the Pope as “Holy Father”. What would our lord think of this?

 5th.   And what about Lot’s wife? All religions today teach that she was killed just because she turned around to look back at Sodom. Did God really kill her as all religions say, especially after releasing her from Sodom?

No! He did not! Every religious group today teach and believe that just because the wife turned to look behind her she was turned into a pillar of salt.                   Read the true account set out underneath.

                                                         Genesis chapter 19.
images (2)
images (1)

Did it really happen like this? With the destruction to the city of Sodom going on whilst they were fleeing? What is interesting is, all the accounts and pictures show this destruction going on in the background while they were fleeing. So did it really happen this way? NO! It did not!

Lot’s wife was not destroyed because she disobeyed the angels telling them to flee and not look back as many claim. Not once do the angels tell them: – if you look back you will die!

 If you read the account from v15-24, it shows how Lot was delaying because he was a wealthy man and did not really want to leave everything behind, so eventually the angels had to take hold of his hand and take him to the outskirts of the city. He was told to flee and not look back in the sense, do not look back at what you will be leaving behind because that would make it harder for him to flee!

 This corresponds with Jesus instructions in Luke 17v29-34, “do not worry about your goods inside the house, do not go back for them” flee away and leave it all behind in order to get saved.

Lot asked to go to the near by town of Zoar and this was granted, and again the angels told him the destruction would not start until he reached Zoar and was safely inside that city. (v22) This was a direct promise. It was only after they reached Zoar did the destruction start.

So even if Lot’s wife did indeed glance back towards Sodom whilst fleeing there was nothing to see, so how could she possibly have been caught up in the destruction when they had been promised it would not start until they reached the safety of Zoar.

It does say in v26, “Lots wife from behind him looked back and she became a pillar of salt”. (RSV) But this was not whilst fleeing from Sodom, they were less than a day’s journey away and after reaching Zoar (22-23) it is more logical to assume, Lot’s wife decided to return to Sodom where her heart really was, without her husband knowing, hence behind his back.

She walked right into the storm, which killed her, and she had done exactly what Jesus was referring to in Luke she had already been saved but chose to go back for the goods in her house. She went back leaving the protection of Zoar.

To illustrate this: – it could be likened to walking through a heavy snow storm which sticks to you and covers you, disorientating you until you don’t know which way to go. This is more likely what happened to her, she started to be covered with the destructive storm of fire and brimstone (sulphur) upon the area and died there. Just like a snowman covered by snow, but a pillar of brimstone and ash.

The story everyone gives about Lot’s wife just looking back and being destroyed is just not true. In fact when God sent Moses to free the Israelites from Egypt, it wasn’t long before they started moaning, Ex 16v209 shows they were looking back in their hearts with a longing to being back in Egypt wishing they were still there in fact, but they were not destroyed for their longing, and showing great disrespect for Moses.

Some according to this account in Genesis blame God for her death, but why on earth send down angels to take them out of the area if God was going to destroy her anyway? Also if the destruction could not start until they reached safety how could it have destroyed her while she was fleeing? She was covered in Salt so where did it come from while they were fleeing and why was the rest of the family not affected? Do people really think Lot and his two grown up daughters would run off and leave her behind? I don’t think so!

No! Of course not! The angels just meant do not look back in your heart at what you are leaving behind your life is worth a lot more than possessions and if one was to keeping looking back in their heart, the heart would take over the person and they would go back. In fact if anyone said this to us ~ do not turn around and look now ~ it is only human nature to turn around and look.

Please read through Genesis 19 at these points and you will see the truth of that account but because everyone quotes v26 the rest of the details are lost and this verse stands out.

This is a very important issue involved here because of the blame involved. God did not kill Lot’s wife, she killed herself for leaving the safety of Zoar and actually going back to Sodom where her heart really was. If she had remained in that place of safety with her family she would have been saved. Also Rehab (Joshua chapter 2v1-21) was saved and everyone inside her house were saved but as verse 19 says, “if anyone goes out of the doors of your house into the street his blood shall be upon his head”, James chapter 2v25, Hebrews chapter 11v31. Luke 17v29-34.

There is a very important lesson here for everyone, never take one verse out of a chapter before reading the whole chapter of events. Yes, Lot’s wife did “look back from behind her husband” (v26) but this did not happen whilst they were fleeing the city, it happened because she decided to return to Sodom without telling her husband, which gives us a totally different meaning to v 26 just by using logic, which after all is just common sense.

6th.   What about the religions today who insist using “unleavened bread” for the memorial of our lord Jesus on the night he was betrayed.

Again, we are not Jews or under any of the laws of Moses so we are not under any command to use unleavened bread. We are a new people under the Christ, Jews and gentiles, a new people from 36 CE. Jesus shows in John chapter 6 he is “the living bread” that came down from heaven that we must eat of if we want eternal life. “Living bread” active, alive, not dead without life as without leaven.

7th.   The Last example I will show at this time is a very important issue and again it has been not been read correctly!

Read with me Exodus chapter 6v2,3, where I quote, “I am the lord. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God almighty but by my name Jehovah I was NOT known to them”.

Quite clearly our lord explains to Moses when he visited Abraham he went in the name of “Almighty God” and the covenant made with him was between Abraham and almighty God, and not our lord, then our lord explains “but by MY name Jehovah” I was NOT known to them. BUT all the Christian religions on the earth today are under a misconception that “Jehovah” is the name for almighty God. Is this correct?

No! It most certainly is not. The name Jehovah has been inserted instead of Lord in Exodus chapter 6v3 and as our lord tells Moses by MY name LORD, or Jehovah, I did not make myself known to Abraham. Our lord visited Abraham as representing his father Almighty God and the covenant made with him was with his father and not with our lord so he could rightly say to Moses he was not known by Jehovah, (lord) to him.

This brings us to the question, is Jehovah the God of the Israelite’s, the Jews? Again the answer is NO! not only have we just read in Exodus our lord was not known to them by this name but the name had not even been heard of before the 13th century CE.

 The facts are, the name Jehovah was “INVENTED” by a Spanish monk named Raymundus in the 13th century as a substitute Latin word for LORD. At that time all church services were spoken in Latin and as there was a Greek substitute word for lord and as all things were now preached in Latin, it seemed just at that time to have a Latin word for lord too. Hence the word “Jehovah” was founded created. Which proves the name could not possibly have been used as a name to the Jews.

So, you may wonder why the name has appeared in our bibles today? Quite simply to fulfil prophecies.

The apostle Paul tells us in his second letter to the Thessalonians chapter 2 that the “man of lawlessness” is sitting INSIDE the temple proclaiming to be God and will be worshipped as God by the people in the new symbolic city of Jerusalem. He will be placed inside the temple by the power of Satan.

 This name was not known because it did not exist before the 13th century and our God will not tolerate this deception to continue much longer. Already the POPE has been guided by our God to remove the name Yahweh or Jehovah from all their hymns and prayer books. The name has been added to God’s word and should now be removed. The first time this name appeared was by William Tyndale in his translation which has been covered in another article in this journal. In fact it has already been removed from newer translations.

Do Jehovah’s witnesses agree with this? That the name is wrong?

YES! They do.

 I quote,

Jehovah’s Witnesses, who was Raymundus Martini?

Update: C.E. Raymundus Martini, a Spanish monk of the Dominican Order, used it in his book Pugeo Fidei of the year 1270. Does this ring a bell?

Update 2: While the pronouncement may still not be known one thing we do know, its not Jehovah. Where does the name Jehovah come from? We can trace the name Jehovah to the first person to use it, a Roman Catholic monk from the 1200’s. “The first recorded use of this form dates from the thirteenth century C.E. Raymundus Martini, a Spanish monk of the Dominican Order, used it in his book “Pugeo Fidei” of the year 1270.” (from Jehovah’s Witnesses own book “Aid to Bible Understanding” p.884). Does this ring a bell?

Update 3: From page 18 of the Jehovah’s Witness book ‘Let Your Name Be Sanctified’ it says, “All available evidence is that a Roman Catholic clergyman introduce that pronunciation. “On page 25 in the Foreword of the 1950 New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures it says this about the Divine Name: “While inclining to view the pronunciation ‘Yah.weh’ as the more correct way, we have retained the form ‘Jehovah’ because of people’s familiarity with it since the 14th century


It is to be remembered our lord today is “OUR LORD JESUS” and certainly NOT our lord Jehovah. This is a complete insult to our lord Jesus who came to the earth and gave his life in order to provide us with a better future.

  bible-21        HOW OUR ENGLISH BIBLE BEGAN.

In the early 16th century Henry 8th was on the throne in the United Kingdom, and at that time the whole of the country was under the Church of Rome and all the church services were said in Latin which meant no one understood what was said or taught by the church fathers.

No one was able to have their own bible to read even if they could understand Latin. Also in the beginning of this 16th century there was a learned man who could speak and understand many languages including Latin and he felt that everyone should have access to the bible and to be able to read it in their own language. That man was William Tnydale.
images (2)
         I copied and pasted an article from the internet of his early life.

William Tyndale was born about 1495 at Slymbridge near the Welsh border. He received his degrees from Magdalen College, Oxford, and also studied at Cambridge. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1521, and soon began to speak of his desire, which eventually became his life’s obsession, to translate the Scriptures into English. It is reported that, in the course of a dispute with a promminent clergyman who disparaged this proposal, he said, “If God spare my life, ere many years I will cause a boy that driveth the plow to know more of the Scriptures than thou dost.” The remainder of his life was devoted to keeping that vow, or boast. Finding that the King, Henry VIII, was firmly set against any English version of the Scriptures, he fled to Germany (visiting Martin Luther in 1525), and there travelled from city to city, in exile, poverty, persecution, and constant danger. Tyndale understood the commonly received doctrine — the popular theology — of his time to imply that men earn their salvation by good behavior and by penance. He wrote eloquently in favor of the view that salvation is a gift of God, freely bestowed, and not a response to any good act on the part of the receiver. His views are expressed in numerous pamphlets, and in the introductions to and commentaries on various books of the Bible that accompanied his translations. He completed his translation of the New Testament in 1525, and it was printed at Worms and smuggled into England. Of 18,000 copies, only two survive. In 1534, he produced a revised version, and began work on the Old Testament. In the next two years he completed and published the Pentateuch and Jonah, and translated the books from Joshua through Second Chronicles, but then he was captured (betrayed by one he had befriended), tried for heresy, and put to death. He was burned at the stake, but, as was often done, the officer strangled him before lighting the fire. His last words were, “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes.”                       End of quote.

He went to the religious authorities to ask permission to translate the bible into the English language so that everyone could have access to it. He was denied this, so he had to travel abroad in order to fulfil his dream, and once his translation was finished (the new testament) it was smuggled into this country in 1526.

Henry heard of this translation through one of his many wives and wanted to know if he would get Tnydale’s approval for him to divorce one of his wives but Tyndale told him the bible teachings were the same as the Church of Rome on divorce.

Making his own rules.   This he did, by abdicating from the Church of Rome and forming his own Church of England and having a New English Bible inside the Church to be read in English. He was ex-communicated from the Church in Rome but this did not bother him now as the head of the new Church of England.

This is how the English bible came about which brings us to the question why did we need a bible in our own language anyway, and did it fit into God’s plans?

Yes! It certainly did.

We are told by the apostle Paul in 1st Thessalonians chapter 5v15-18 those who are alive at that time when Jesus returns who make up the temple of Jesus body, his true church, his bride, will be taken to meet up with him. So without a bible to guide us we would never know what the teachings of Jesus were or any mention of our Lord even returning to the earth. So guidance was needed. As this web page will help one to understand.

This was when William Tnydale came on the scene. His desire to provide everyone with their own bible in a language they could read and understand was a wonderful event. Having gone abroad to write it and smuggle it into this country was amazing. He completed the New Testament and smuggled it into the country in 1526. But because he would not sanction Henry’s divorce he became a wanted man an outlaw. His translations of the new testaments were burned but some did survive.

Image5He was finally betrayed and caught being sentenced to death; he was burned upon a stake. But it is said, his last words were, “please Lord open the king of England’s eyes”. This we know did indeed happen and the king, Henry 8th authorised an English bible to be used and read in the newly formed Church of England.

Later, in time he was succeeded to the throne by Elizabeth 1st in 1558 who was the last monarch of the house of Tudor.

220px-Elizabeth_I_in_coronation_robesShe had many advisors to help her. She authorised William Tnydale’s bible to be copied by the Bishops and it was called “The Bishops Bible” which would be read in all the Churches of England this was in 1568, ten years after she became the queen.

tyndale-bible-lgAt the death of William Tnydale his companion Miles Coverdale completed this very important work. He finished Tnydale’s work which became the basis for the “King James Bible” today an authorised version sanctioned by King James to be read in all the churches today in 1611.


                         This popular edition is still used today by many people.

Here we have a little of the history behind our English translation of God’s word the bible without which, we would have no knowledge of our lord Jesus and his teachings so it really was an act of love for our father to provide us with this very important book of books. When we see the hardships people went through in order to get us this bible in English, the least we can do is to read and study it.

It shows “no man has seen God at any time except his only son who came to the earth”. John chapter 1v18. Also it says, “ there is one God and father and one lord, Jesus Christ”. 1st Corinthians chapter 8v6. But, before Jesus came to the earth and was known as Jesus, he was called the lord just as all the references in the Old Testament agrees. But of course “Lord” is only a title not a name. We were not given a name for the Lord.

John speaks of our lord as the “word” in his account of events and who better to represent and speak for our heavenly father than his “word” as spokesman. (John chapter 1v2,3)

t was our lord that was used to create the earth and its heavens and all that lives in it and it was our lord that appeared to Abraham with two other angelic ones which then journeyed down to Sodom.

So the question is: ~ if our lord was not known to us in the old testament by name, was his father?

I ask this because the Church and other religious groups say God’s name is Yahweh or even Jehovah. Where in the bible does it say this? It certainly does not!

There is a reference to this name “Jehovah” in Exodus chapter 6v3 which was first translated by William Tnydale as “Iehouah” and translated in the King James Bible Version, as “Jehovah”

which has been widely known as “God’s name” but is it?

Please get your bible and follow the theme of events with me starting in Exodus chapter 3v13-17, Moses says “if I go to the people of Israel and say to them, the God of your fathers has sent me to you and they ask me, what is his name? What shall I say to them? I am who I am has sent you…This is my name forever”. The Lord is the name I am to be remembered by. So when Moses asked the Lord what name shall he give them he was not given a personal name at all but the lord.

Now if we follow this same theme through to chapter 6 of Exodus v2,3, we can continue in this same line of thought. Remembering it was the Lord that was appearing to Moses because as we have already seen “no man has seen God at any time”, Here, our Lord confirms he is not God, because he tells us in v2 “I am the Lord I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty but by my name the Lord I did not make myself known to them”. This is so clear and straightforward our Lord was not the Almighty God but that he appeared as him, his spokesman.

To quote from William Tnydale’s version: ~ Chapter 3v15 “ And God spake further vnto Moses: thus shalt thou saye vnto the children of Israell: the Lorde God of youre fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Iacob hath sent me vnto you: this is my name for euer, and this is my memoriall thorow out all generacyons. Chapter 6 says  “Then the Lorde sayde vnto Moses: Now shalt thou see what I will doo vnto Pharao, for with a myghtie hande shall he let them goo, and with a mightye hande shall he dryue them out of hys lande. 2 And God spake vnto Moses sayng vnto him: I am the Lorde, 3 and I appeared vnto Abraham, Isaac and Iacob an allmightie God: but in my name Iehouah was I not knowne vnto them”.

But, Myles Coverdale reverts back to LORD. CHAPTER 6V2,3  “The LORDE sayde vnto Moses: Now shalt thou se, what I will do vnto Pharao, for thorow a mightie hande must he let them go, thorow a mightie hande must he dryue them from him out of his londe. 2 And God spake vnto Moses, & sayde vnto him: I am ye LORDE, 3 & I appeared vnto Abraham, Isaac & Iacob, an Allmightie God: but my name, LORDE, haue I not shewed vnto them”:

Then again, when Elizabeth 1st came to the throne she sanctioned the “Bishop’s Bible”and reverted back to William Tnydale’s version using the name “Jehovah” for Lord.

THE BISHOP’S BIBLE 1568 “And God spake further vnto Moyses, Thus shalt thou say vnto the chyldren of Israel: The Lorde God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isahac, and the God of Iacob hath sent me vnto you: This is my name for euer, and this is my memoriall into generation and generation”.  CHAPTER 6V2,3 2 “And God spake vnto Moyses, and said vnto him: I am Iehouah. 3 I appeared vnto Abraham, Isahac, and Iacob as an almightie God: but in my name Iehouah was I not knowen vnto them”.

This was how the name Jehovah came into the King James version.

But we have translated in Exodus chapter 6v3 “By my name Jehovah I was not known to them”. (Abraham) Here it shows quite clearly the lord has been translated as Jehovah. NOT GOD but the lord. And our Lord makes it very clear he was NOT known to Abraham by this name Jehovah. KJV

defaultpox8n3jz1As many religions on the earth today know there is no “J” in the Hebrew or the Greek language so the church prefer to use the name Yahweh instead, but still refers this to “the name for God instead of Lord”. So how did this come about in the first place?

Logically speaking, our lord since the 1st century is called Jesus Christ, so how can he be lord Jehovah as well? This is an insult to our lord Jesus who gave his life for us. This must be of the “antichrist” to call our lord “Jehovah”.

It all came about in the 13th century CE, when a Spanish monk by the name Raymundas invented the name “Iehouah” as a Latin substitute word for Lord. At this time all church services were said in Latin and as William Tnydale was a scholar in all the bible languages he inserted the name for Lord in Exodus chapter 6v3. He was obviously guided to do this by the holy spirit for a purpose. (all this can be verified on the internet)

That purpose for the name has now been fulfilled and no longer needed so the name will be blotted out of existence. The POPE of the Church of Rome has already banned the name Yahweh from all the hymns and prayer books making the name obsolete. He did this in 2008, hopefully, no doubt all other religions will follow suit.

Logically speaking, as the name was not invented until the 13th century CE its name could not possibly have been found in Exodus chapter 6. It was a sprat to catch a mackerel and the purpose now has been met. It is now time for it to go down into the abyss where it belongs.

For those who will not accept the truth about this “invented Latin name” Jehovah for Lord, the apostle Paul tells us in his 2nd letter to the Thessalonians chapter 2v10 which in part says “because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion to make them believe what is false so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but has pleasure in unrighteousness”.

And what is the truth that Paul is telling us? The name Jehovah is not God! In the same chapter Paul tells us in verse 4, he is in fact “the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God proclaiming himself to be God”.

In fact Paul’s 2nd letter to the Thessalonians chapter 2 tells us so mush about this lawless one. In verses 8-13 it shows not only will this lawless one be revealed as false but it shows how his death comes about too.

“And then the lawless one will be revealed and the lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by his appearing and his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan will be with all power and pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved”. So this wicked lawless one Jehovah will be killed through the holy spirit when our lord Jesus returns.

Establishing this lawless one can only be “Jehovah” who is masquerading as God in the church today and proclaiming to be him, we have learned the name was indeed “invented” as a Latin substitute word for Lord,

In all Christian religions throughout the earth today there is no one who claims to be God by name even the POPE in Rome would never claim this. The only claim to be God other than our father is “Jehovah”. The man of lawlessness the apostle Paul warns us against.

So, why did our heavenly father use William Tnydale to insert the name in exodus chapter 6 when it had been added to God’s word? Because, it was to fulfil all the prophecies.

A sprat to catch a mackerel.

William Tnydale was the sprat and this was laid down as bait. It finally caught its pray the mackerel which was “the new world translation of the bible”.

images (5)images (6)

How can we say this was the intended catch? Because this translation is the only one that is “spurious” (meaning not genuine or authentic) and it is the only translation which has been added to include the name “Jehovah” throughout its pages which really alters God’s word completely.

The writers of this translation claims it has only replaced the name that was removed in the first place. Yes, this is true BUT when was the name removed? It was only added in the 16th century CE anyway.

The time had finally come to reel in the mackerel and in 1901 the Americans brought out a translation of the bible inserting the name “Jehovah” throughout its pages and this translation was deemed to be an “unauthorised” edition because they had added to God’s word.  So the name was removed and replaced with the Revised Standard Version, removing the name and reverting back to the King James edition. The writers of this edition “The New World Translation” replaced the name again with this spurious version of God’s word, which in fact making it, NOT GOD’S WORD.

By altering and adding   to God’s word it brings into question the truth of our lord’s statement in Exodus chapter 6v3 where our lord states “by my name Jehovah I was not known to them” (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob)   but, they have disregarded this completely and state in Genesis starting in chapter 12 that Jehovah visited Abram and he made an altar to Jehovah proving Abram knew “Jehovah”. This makes our Lords statement wrong.

Also, this apostate version have inserted in Romans chapter 10v13 “Everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will be saved”. Whereas it should read “Everyone who calls on the name of the lord will be saved” referring to our lord Jesus as verse 9 says “Because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is lord and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved”.

This is what happens when people meddle with God’s word and this is why this translation is spurious.

So now the mackerel has been reeled in and caught, it now needs to be hit on the head and killed off just like the “American Standard Version” of 1901 when it was deemed unauthorised and apostate for adding to God’s word and was replaced by the “American revised Version”.

This journal, understanding the bible, is not designed as a “placebo” it tells the truth as the bible teaches it. So if you are looking for an easy life of solace then don’t bother reading this journal. But, on the other hand if you are looking for the truth, the real teachings of Jesus then continue reading.

sacrifice 2

                                  JESUS IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR

nativity 24

                                     GOD’S WORD IS TRUTH! 

The truth will set you free from all the false teachings of the churches who only offers “placebo’s” which I quote means:~ A placebo  “I please” is a simulated or otherwise medically ineffectual treatment for a disease or other medical condition intended to deceive the recipient.

In this case issued by the church to pacify rather than speak the truth as it shows “I PLEASE”.

Some people would rather be lulled into a false sense of feelings than actually face the truth of Jesus words in the bible. The same happened in the first century when the apostle Paul taught the Jews and the Gentiles they were not under the laws of Moses but under undeserved kindness and faith in Jesus for salvation, he was persecuted and chased out of cities for teaching the truth instead of offering false hope.

In fact, the Jews still choose to be under the laws of Moses today, nearly two thousand year later, rather than listen to our Lord Jesus who came to the earth to free them.

It is no different today most people do not want to know the truth, they like the effects of a “placebo”. They are entitled to their thoughts  and this journal is not designed to enter into disputes with people’s beliefs, if they are happy but for others wanting the truth from the bible, then it brings us back to that old saying “the truth hurts”.

bible-21        WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE?

This is one of the most painful experiences of a persons life, to lose a loved one in death and as it is a part of our everyday life we need answers BUT not just answers that will pacify us BUT the true answers that will help us to recover the loss.

Many people visit the grave of a loved one in the hope of gaining solace and peace of mind to feel close to that one, because that is the last resting place of their loved ones.  

Many religious leaders today think that by giving someone a “placebo” which is an answer just to pacify a person and help them over their loss is the right thing to do BUT sadly this is just distorting the truth of God’s word.

The “placebo” they offer is, that their loved ones are now with God in heaven, or that God actually took their loved one to be with him. Although this might help the person to grieve it is NOT the truth of God’s word. In fact it can cause the opposite to happen. To be fair why on earth would God want to take anyone to be spirits in the heavens when he already has a great large family there already, we were created for the earth not for the heavens.

Let me tell you a little story that really happened to me personally and I expect it will be your experience too.

On the death of my father a clergyman came to the house to pray with us and I asked him “where is my father now?” His answer was “he is in heaven now with God and is now a spirit. So I asked him if he was a spirit now could he be in the room with us right now and his answer again was “Yes” he was with us.

This answer or placebo, made me turn my back on my heavenly father. My God, because this was the cruellest thing of all, to take a person from their loved ones and have them present in the same room and not be able to comfort their loved ones this was cruel. My mother was beside herself and so must my father have been seeing her in this sad agitated state and not be able to help her, so this answer from a church minister certainly did not help me at all. In fact it turned me against my heavenly father instead. This is what happens when the truth is not taught but is replaced by a fantasy in order to help one to grieve.

So what is the truth?  We can read of one account in God’s word, that of Lazarus, a close friend of Jesus, in John chapter 11v1-45. It shows Jesus had heard that Lazarus was ill but he also knew he was dying but he did not hurry to him because he wanted to show God’s glory by resurrecting him. So Jesus said to his disciples “our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep but I go to awaken him from sleep. (verse 12,13) but, Jesus had spoken of his death.

images (2)

We can see here that Jesus was teaching that when ones dies they are in fact just sleeping. On reading the whole account we can see that the sisters Martha and Mary were not at the graveside mourning their brother because they knew the true teachings of Jesus about a resurrection at a later time, the last day. (verse 24)

Also we can see that their brother had been in the tomb for four days at this time and most probably already started to decay because of the heat. (verse 38-44)


It is interesting too that Jesus called him out of the tomb because that is where he was, not in heaven, but asleep. Also what is interesting was the fact that Lazarus did not say, “why did you bring me back here when I was happy in heaven”? He came out wondering what all the fuss was about. He certainly did not know he had been dead for four days.

We also have the knowledge that Jesus was in the grave, tomb, for three days too and if he had gone straight to heaven he would not have needed a resurrection. Proving yet again one will need to have a resurrection to life after they have fallen asleep. Like Lazarus and Jesus.

Everyone today dies because we have inherited sin and death from Adam. But Jesus promised that under his kingdom set up on the last day, where he will be the lord of the Sabbath, everyone will have life instead of inherited death.

images (1)Adam lost the right to eat from the tree of life which would have sustained his life so when his body started to break down without that life giving food, he could not pass on to us perfect health. (Genesis chapter 3v22-24)

We cannot blame God for our loss of life he certainly would not want to take anyone from their loved ones, in fact he cared so much about this he sent his only beloved son to the earth to change our future inheritance from death to life.

The bible assures us that everyone will have a resurrection from their long deep sleep and return to life here on the earth where they belong.

This must be reassuring to everyone who has lost someone dear to them to have this knowledge that our loved ones are in a deep, deep, sleep and do not know anything at all. Yes! We are hurting and feeling their loss but to have the true knowledge that our loved ones do not know or feel anything is a great comfort. We do not need to visit their last resting place, their grave, to remember them all we need to do is to have a lovely photograph of them and to look at this in their loving memory instead. This will portray them “alive and happy” not dead and gone. Keep the happy memories of them instead of the sad end of them.

Knowing that they are in a deep sleep will help one to have peace of mind knowing they do not feel anything. This is the true teachings of our lord Jesus. If he had to wait three days in the grave to have a resurrection and Lazarus four days, then so will we wait for the kingdom of our lord for our resurrection. Both of these two examples show the need to have someone resurrect us, it is not automatic, this might seem completely different from what you have been taught by the church or imagined but it is the truth from God’s word the bible not just a placebo. This is truth!

Always have a photo of your loved ones at hand and look at it and remember the wonderful happy times you shared with them while you wait for their resurrection under God’s kingdom. Let your kingdom come, let your will take place as it is in the heavens and under God’s kingdom death will be no more what a wonderful promise. (Revelation chapter 21v3-5) Just remember they are not conscious of anything at all. (Ecclesiastes chapter 9v5) remember they are feeling nothing, not sad, pain, nothing at all just sleeping.

It is like when you go to sleep at night you wake up in the morning you look at the time and think wow is that the time? Also when people are in deep comas they do not know how long that have been in one they wake up as if it is morning.

The resurrection is divided into two parts, an early, or first resurrection followed by a general one and just like the two examples we have covered, the resurrection of both Jesus and Lazarus they can be a guide as to the two resurrections. One was a resurrection to the “spirit” and one was a resurrection back on the earth as man.

If we look at the first resurrection to the spirit Jesus shows this will take place all in one resurrection, not individual ones, but one full complete body resurrected all together.

When he was asked by the Jews what authority he had to remove and cleanse the temple from dealers it tells us in John chapter 2v18-23 “Jesus answered them destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up…But he spoke of the temple of his body”.

Note Jesus says “I will raise it up” we know he could not raise himself out of the deep sleep he was in back to the world of the spirit, so he meant as his body represented the temple, he was the “chief corner stone” of the spiritual temple and his apostles were the twelve pillars, or foundations stones of the spiritual temple and all the others that make up the spiritual temple will be built up upon these, the whole spiritual temple that make up the body of our lord will be “Raised up”, resurrected as “one” body, a bride chosen for him by his father in three days.

The apostle Paul tells us in Romans chapter 12v4, 5 “For as in one body we have many members and all the members do not have the same function so we though many are one body in Christ and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us let us use them.”

Just as the apostle Paul tells us here, there are many parts to the human body and they all have a different function.

For instance we have two feet and two hands which serve the body in different ways, we have toes and fingers and many different organs to serve us all with a different job to perform to make our bodies work for the best. They all function in a different way from each other so too those that makes up the body of our lord Jesus.

It shows in 1st Corinthians chapter 7 v7, and 12v4. “There are a varieties of gifts… and varieties of service…To one is given…the utterance of wisdom, to another the utterance of knowledge. to another faith…to another gifts of healing…to another the workings of miracles and to another prophecy…to another various tongues.. to another the interpretation of tongues… For just as the body is one and has many members so it is with Christ. For the body does not consist of one member but of many, if the foot should say because I am not a hand I do not belong to the body and if the ear should say because I am not an eye I do not belong to the body. If the whole body were an eye where would be the hearing? If the whole body were an ear where would the sense of smell be? God arranged the organs in the body as he chose, there are many parts but one body”. As verse 27-31 shows “Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it”.

When the apostle John was privileged to see into the future earth’s heavens by Jesus angel he saw the number of those sealed that will be with Jesus in his kingdom as recorded 144.000. (Revelation chapter 7v4) we have no reason to doubt this number as it was given through the angel directed by the Christ.

All these members will be given their own function to perform under the kingdom of the Christ and they will make up a perfect government over the earth which in turn will produce a “new earth”.

Also 1st Thessalonians chapter 4v13-18 shows “But we would not have you ignorant brothers concerning those who are asleep that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope for since we believe that Jesus died and rose again even so through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep…we who are alive who are left until the coming of the lord shall not precede those who have fallen asleep for the lord will descend from heaven with a cry of command with an archangels call…and the dead in the Christ will rise first, then we who are alive who are left shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the lord in the air”.

Note! They will all meet the lord as ONE body, ONE bride all together, having ONE resurrection. So the spiritual temple is built up complete in three days just as Jesus told the Jews.

Of course there are many references to the order of the resurrection, as in 1st Corinthians chapter 15v21-24 v51-53.

Also John chapter 14v3 Jesus shows he will go and prepare a place for his people and he tells them “I will come again and take you to myself”. This shows again that when one of the bride class dies, they are not resurrected at once but they will wait asleep in the grave until out lord returns then he will awaken them and take them to the place he had prepared for them. Just as he tells us in 1st Corinthians chapter 15v21-24 “but each in its own order Christ the first fruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ”. So the apostles and all those who make up the body of our lord will remain sleeping in the grave UNTIL he comes back. Returns.

Jesus tells us in John chapter 6 that he will raise these ones up on the “last day” which will be under his kingdom over the earth. In fact he tells them four times in all, verses 39,40,44 and 54. they will be resurrected on the last day, the day of the Sabbath when Jesus will be lord over the earth.

Now to the resurrection of Lazarus, he was raised up out of sleep by Jesus through the power of his father but he was raised back on the earth as flesh and blood. His body was still the same as it was, not perfect on his raising up so too will the general resurrection be. During the reign of our lord Jesus and his bride of helpers all will be raised back to the earth but they will not be perfect in mind and body. They will have the 1,000 year reign of our lord to gain health and perfection, then at the end of that time when they have attained that perfection they will be granted a full resurrection as perfect humans on the earth just as Revelation chapter 20v4, 5. The first to be resurrected “came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years”. “The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended”. Although they were resurrected during the 1000 years they did not fully receive eternal life until the end of the reign of the Christ.

These are the teachings of our lord Jesus but not the teachings of the churches on the earth today. Who insist ones go to heaven when they die, as we can see Jesus did not even apply this to his apostles but he told them, “when I return I will take you to myself”.

This must be reassuring for everyone wanting to know the truth about death. To know no one is suffering or in pain except us for our loss.

A well know poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye says, “do not stand at my grave and cry I am not there I did not die.”

Let our epitaph be: ~ I am asleep waiting to be resurrected back to you, so in the meantime look at my photo and remember the happy times we had together and not mourn at my grave.

bible-21 Read God’s word of truth!

The two principle seeds on the earth today!

Genesis 3v18. The seed of Satan and the seed of the woman started when the sons of God left the high heavens to come to the earth to view the daughters of man and whom they had relations with, and by mixing the two groups of flesh, the spirit with flesh and blood they produced a new creation called “Nephelim”. Who were freaks of nature producing giants.

nativity 16

After the flood came in the days of Noah to wipe out all the wickedness these half-breeds and the sons of God had caused, the flesh and blood side of their creation died which left their spirit side to take over, which caused a new creation yet again, but still called Nephelim. These became the “wicked spirits” that were on the earth which Jesus expelled according to the book of Enoch chapter 15 where it also states, “these demon spirits will rise up against the children of men and against the woman, because they have proceeded from them”.

These two seeds will grow side by side on the earth as TWO separate “earthly creations”, one of flesh and blood and one of the spirit, not fully spirit but confined to the earth.

This can also explain how people have seen “ghosts” or aliens on the earth. It is more probable they would have seen these spirit ones on occasions.

These make up the earthly seed of Satan and the woman. The flesh and blood creation from the woman and the spirit half-breed’s of the seed of Satan, but it also applies to the spirits of the high heavens too between the angelic ones who follow Satan and the righteous angels that make up the woman.

So, we have two earthly families now, one of flesh and blood, human, and one of spirit, Nephelim, living side by side on the earth and these too will have enmity amongst them which will divide them, also between God’s heavenly woman and Satan. Rivalry between the earthbound spirits and rivalry between the flesh and blood family.

Even if readers of this journal are not happy with the use of the prophetic book of Enoch which really expounds on these sons of God that came down and explains them in great details, then we still have the account in Geneses chapter 6 and we know the Nephelim were still on the earth when Jesus was here in the 1st century where he expelled some of them. So they are part of our history according to Moses and Luke chapter 8v29-34 shows just one of theses events where the unclean spirit said his name was “Legion” because there are many of them.

We also know that this book of Enoch was part of the Jewish books and was known even when Jesus was on the earth because Jude, the half-brother of Jesus quoted from it in his book   Jude chapter 1v5-17.

Also the earthly family of flesh and blood will have two seeds, rivals, and the spirit family will also have two seeds, rivals, according to the book of Enoch who was the seventh in line from Adam.

 The book of Enoch shows the angelic sons of God who left the high heavens and came to the earth to view the daughters of mankind and had relationships with them and produced the Nephelim. Genesis chapter 6v4 says “the Nephelim were on the earth in those days and also afterwards when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them, they were the might men of old the men of renown.

 Enoch shows in chapter 15, that as these spirit sons of God sinned they could not return to the high heavens again they would become earth-bound and in order to stop them from having more children by the earthly woman, producing Nephelim offspring God has given them women of their own to have offspring with. Which makes the spirit ones that are earthbound with two seeds, one from the Nephelim and one seed from the angelic sons with the women provided for them.

 Quote from chapter 15 from the book of Enoch. Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men and taken to yourselves wives, and done like the children 4 of earth, and begotten giants (as your) sons? And though ye were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with the blood of flesh, and, as the children of men, have lusted after flesh and blood as those also do who die 5 and perish. Therefore have I given them wives also that they might impregnate them, and beget 6 children by them, that thus nothing might be wanting to them on earth. But you were formerly 7 spiritual, living the eternal life, and immortal for all generations of the world. And therefore I have not appointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual ones of the heaven, in heaven is their dwelling. 8 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon 9 the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; 10 they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. [As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.] And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless 12 hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.

These two spirit seeds will be rivals, the Nephelim and the legitimate spirits born of the sons of God and the spirit wives given to them by God. The Nephelim will claim they are superior to their younger rivals. Just like the two seeds of earthly man.

The two seeds of earthly man made up of flesh and blood became manifest in the days of Abraham, who’s wife Sarah was barren and she gave her maidservant Hagar to her husband to have relations with her to produce offspring for her. Eventually Sarah gave birth to a son, Isaac.

Ishmael was about 14 years old when Isaac was born and as Isaac got older Sarah realised things were not going to work out in the household when she saw Ishmael poking fun of Isaac so she asked Abraham to send Hagar away with her son. Hagar was assured by the angel before her son was born that his descendants would be great (Genesis chapter 16v5-15) and that her son would become the head of nations. Genesis chapter 21v13 says “and I will make a nation of the son of the slave woman also, Genesis chapter 17v20 says to Abraham, “As for Ishmael, I will bless him and make him fruitful, and he shall be the father of twelve princes and I will make him a great nation” because he is your offspring” “I will make him a great nation” 21v18

These two seeds coming from Abraham in the latter days have been at logger- heads. Now since the 7th century, the one seed Ishmael, has become more prominent and has been deemed to be the real seed of Abraham by the Arabs and now by the Moslems today and they feel they should have received all the blessing from Abraham as the firstborn’s inheritance, but, Isaac, procured the promise of inheritance and Abraham’s grandson Jacob received an adoption by God as God’s nation leading to the Christ being born legitimately. Genesis chapter 12v7 says, “to your descendants I will give the land of Canaan”.

But we also know that Ishmael was blessed as being the head of a great nation too. This great nation has come to light now, with the nation of Islam. Descendants from the Arabs who were Ishmael’s descendants and produced the man Mohammed who has been classed as one of their prophets.   They believe the angel Gabriel guided Mohammed to hidden scrolls or books from Abraham. Thus becoming the great nation predicted by God that would come through Ishmael.

So today, we have the two great nations from Abraham, the seed of Ishmael, Arabs and Islam and the seed of Isaac the Jews and Christians, just as Islam descended from the Arabs so too Christians descended from the Jews who rejected the kingdom of God and had his son Jesus killed.

Already the rivalry has been evident, ancient Jerusalem today is divided into three religious nations. Judaism, Christian and Moslem and the dome of the rock stands proudly right in the middle of the city now dominated by the Moslems.


The Dome of the Rock is a 7th-century edifice located in Jerusalem.It enshrines the rock from which Muhammad is said to have ascended to heaven.

Jerusalem was the center for God’s people Israel but after Jesus death when the curtain inside the temple of the most holy was rent in two opening up the inner sanctuary which contained the holy spirit thus showing God had left the city and the Jews, ironically now to see Jerusalem the center for the antichrist the Moslems.

Israel bans vigilante group of Muslim women who stand at holy sites in Jerusalem abusing Jewish visitors

  • Group called Murabitat stand outside the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem
  • They claim they are preventing ‘sacrilege’ by Jews visiting the holy site

But the women have now been banned by the Israeli defence minister 2C26A6E000000578-3232004-image-m-18_1442072742837

Israel has been forced to ban a group of Muslim vigilantes who assemble at a mosque in Jerusalem every day to guard against ‘sacrilege’ by Jewish visitors.

Veiled women in black robes stand at the Al-Aqsa mosque, on Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s walled Old City, and closely monitor Jews who visit under police guard.

The women – known as the Murabitat – along with a similar men’s group often shout abuse and religious oaths at Jewish people who have come to see the site – the holiest place in Judaism. Between them stand Israeli police, some in riot gear, half-heartedly shoving at both sides in an effort to keep them apart and ignoring abuse from both directions.
 These two seeds were emphasised by Paul in his letter to the Galatians chapter 4v24-31 “Firstly, he shows this is an allegory, (allegory means a story with a meaning) these two women are two covenants, now we brethren like Isaac are children of promise but as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the spirit so it is now… cast out the slave and her son for the son of the slave shall not inherit with the son of the free woman”. So it was understood from the beginning about the two sons of Abraham.

As for Abraham’s life after the death of his wife Sarah he married again to “Keturah” and she bore him six children, but these were given gifts from Abraham before his death when he sent them away to the east, away from Isaac. Then when Abraham died both Ishmael and Isaac together buried their father. Genesis chapter 25v1-12.

This emphasises more fully the first prophecy in Genesis chapter 3v18 where there will be enmity between the seed of Satan and the seed of God’s woman. To explain this further we need to look at our history.

In the first century God sent his son to the earth to change our future from being governed by the angelic princes (Daniel chapter 10) to being ruled by his son Jesus Christ as our king. He was sent to the chosen nation that was adopted by God through Jacob, the grand-son of Abraham. But as they rejected him, he opened up the blessing for the gentiles too, just as the prophets foretold so that everyone putting faith in Jesus might have eternal life.

600 years passed for Jesus to establish his people on the earth, then, Satan the antichrist, full of jealousy when he saw the people flocking to Jesus, his rival formed his people Islam, descendents from Ishmael son of Abraham. He too used the angel Gabriel to announce them.

Gabriel announced to the shepherds the birth of our lord in the first century then later it is said Gabriel appeared to Mohammed an Arab and revealed to him hidden books from Abraham.

The hatred of these two seeds of flesh and blood will become manifest between the Jews and the Arabs and eventually leading to the Moslems and Christians on the earth.

According to   encyclopaedia, the descendants of Ishmael were the Arabs and later the Moslems both antichrist groups of people and the descendants of Isaac were the people of Israel the chosen nation leading to the Messiah, the Christ. These two main groups of descendants today from Abraham are the people of the promise “Christians” and the “Antichrists”.

1st John chapter 2v21-23 shows: ~ “I write to you not because you do not know the truth but because you know it, and know that no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ. This is the antichrist”. So Moslems today preach and believe that Jesus is not the messiah God’s son, but just a prophet. Proof they are of the “antichrist’s today” according to our Christian beliefs and God’s word the bible.
Christians know that Jesus could never have performed any of those miracles if he did not have his father’s holy spirit to do them, also he showed himself to many people after his resurrection proving he had been resurrected from the dead. Again proving himself more than just a prophet. He was God’s son on the earth today.

.The principle seed of the woman, the promised messiah was revealed in the 1st century forming a new covenant with people on the earth, that by putting faith in him they could have eternal life. This was fulfilling the old covenant with the Jews and the laws under Moses bringing them to a close. Romans chapter 7v6 says of the Jewish system “but now we are discharged from the law dead in that which held us captive so that we serve not under the old written code but in the new life of the spirit”.

Jesus told the Jews recorded in John chapter 7v9 “I have other sheep which are not of this fold (Jews) these too I must bring and they will be ONE flock, under one shepherd” one flock made up of both Jews and gentiles.

Christianity was established in the 1st century and in the 3rd century it was made a state religion by the Roman Empire, becoming the Church of Rome. Constantine wanted to unify all his people that were divided by religious beliefs so by forming a state religion, all believing the same things he had more control over them. He took the celebration of the “mid winter Solstice feast” and called it Christmas, the birth of Jesus. Which is still celebrated throughout the earth today.

It was now time to establish the seed of, the antichrist’s, so that both seeds will be on the earth together. Although the Arabs, the descendants of Ishmael were already here and thriving, it was time now to fully establish the antichrist’s to combat the Christians.

So, in the 7th century the seed of the antichrist formed a new world religion called “Islam, known today as Muslims” they worship Allah as their god and they will become a great nation just as the angel told Hagar, Ishmael’s mother. These two seeds will become rivals until the end, then the antichrist’s, the Moslems will make a spiritual war, and they will thrive and overtake the Christians in some countries and become the more prominent religion against the seed of the woman, Christians.

This is evident today for instance in Britain where Mosques are being erected in many of the main cities for worship also having their own schools for their children to be taught the Koran instead of Christianity. But, we should not worry about this little set up because we know God’s kingdom under our lord Jesus Christ will come soon and he will bring the victory to all his people on the earth, Christians everywhere. So we shall continue praying just as Jesus showed us, “Let your kingdom come, let your will be done on the earth as it is in the heavens”. Matthew chapter 6v9.

Although this battle is for the world’s supremacy, which will determine who will rule the world, the actual battle will be fought amongst the angelic spirit ones where they will all be gathered to the place called Armageddon for the final end. Just as Peter shows, “judgement starts with the house of God”.

The seed of Satan, the demon spirits, will engage the services of the human family to bring about a tribulation on the earth to establish a worldwide dominion of the human family, just like the demon spirits that possessed men in the first century when Jesus was on the earth and he expelled them, so too at this time of the end they will again enter into some of the human race to fulfil their purposes to take over the world which we can see right now in certain places on the earth today where extremist groups of Muslims are trying to take over the earth. The supremacy of the world is now at stake between the seed of the Christ and the seed of the Antichrist.

Of course. The demon spirits today are invisible to the human eye that is why they would have to enter into humans to fight but in the beginning the seed of Satan were the “Nephelim” who tried to take over the human creation with their size, strength and their violence and had to be dealt with before they could take over the earth. Their aim is the same today, to take over the world of mankind.

By this time too, according to the book of Enoch, the spirit sons of God that came down to the earth could not return to the heavens so they were given wives of their own creation to keep them from going again with the women of flesh and blood, so they will have by now produced a large population. (Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men and taken to yourselves wives, and done like the children 4 of earth, and begotten giants (as your) sons? And though ye were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with the blood of flesh, and, as the children of men, have lusted after flesh and blood as those also do who die 5 and perish. Therefore have I given them wives also that they might impregnate them, and beget 6 children by them, that thus nothing might be wanting to them on earth. Chapter 15)

What is interesting about this new creation is: ~ they do not need food to sustain their lives like the human creation because they are of the spirit. They do not have to live like us either in houses and sharing towns but they will have their own dwelling places. This too is born out for us in the book of Enoch chapter 10 where it states certain ones who had mislead the sons of God were cast into darkness ~ open the desert and place over him (one of the fallen angels) rough jagged rocks”. These spirit ones are placed in caverns deep under the ground in the desert places  

images (2)    images (3)

There are examples of these areas for instance in the desert rocky mountainous areas in Jordan there is a city called “Petra” which has been carved out of solid rock even scientists today do not fully understand how this was done. If you look at this close-up you will see it is an entrance to a city deep under the ground. It could even represent a temple area with a crown, a throne, which could represent a kingdom, and its name “Petra” reminds us of Jesus words to Peter that he Jesus was the rock-mass and “upon this stone, (Jesus) Petra, I will build my church”.  

Could this be a temple, church, built by the angelic seed leading to their city. Even the stone artefacts are of angels. It has been carved from the solid rock-face.

We know some of these spirit ones will be saved under the new kingdom of the Christ so it is possible this could be a temple of worship to our lord Jesus, but this is just supposition at this stage.

The great war at the time of judgement upon God’s sons prior to his kingdom being set up is brought out fully in Amos chapter 9v1-5 where it shows “not one of them will escape. Though they dig down into sheol from there shall my hand take them though they climb up to heaven from there I will bring them down and though they hide from my sight at the bottom of the sea there I will command the serpent and it shall bite them and though they go into captivity before their enemies there I will command the sword and it shall slay them”.

Angelic spirit ones can hide from God in these places when the judgement day comes but we are assured he will get all of them. You may think this is not reasonable? But yes” it is. During the last few years “SINK” holes have opened up all around the earth even under the sea bed where large caverns have been under the ground just as the book of Enoch shows. These spirit ones would not live on the earth but in their own habitat, under the earth and under the sea even on top of very high mountains.

What is interesting about these “sink” holes they are all round, circular like bore holes. Even in solid rock or under the sea bed.

.Again, their plans to take over the world will be thwarted by our Almighty God who takes control of the earth’s heavens. We are shown in Revelation chapter 11v15-19, where it says “We give thanks to thee, Lord God Almighty, who art and who was, that thou hast taken thy great power and begun to reign. The nations raged but thy wrath came and the time for the dead to be judged for rewarding thy servants the prophets and the saints and those who fear thy name both small and great and for destroying the destroyers of the earth”.

To conclude, the principle earthly seed of the antichrist are the Moslems today and the seed of the woman, are the Christians, and these two creations are the seeds of Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac.

But also, After Jesus had been resurrected by his father it says he went and preached to the spirits that had been confined in the prisons after they sinned before the flood so it is possible that some of those spirit created ones will be saved through the blood of Jesus. This will cause friction between the demon spirits and those putting faith in Jesus. 1st Peter chapter 3v19-21, 4v17, 2nd Peter 2v5-16.

We also know from Revelation chapter 7v1-17 there are two heavenly groups that will live in the earth’s heaven with Jesus. An earthly number sealed through the Christ, adopted as sons who will become Christ’s woman, no longer his bride but now betrothed, and a great crowd un- numbered, in size which have been explained in verse 13-16 they have come out of the great tribulation on the earth and they have washed their robes in the blood of the lamb. These are the spirit created ones who have been confined to the earth that Jesus preached to after his resurrection. They will be blessed by having life.

And the angelic spirit seed between Satan and the woman are the angelic spirit ones who survived the flood taking on a new form on the earth and the spirits that have ruled over the earth will make war upon the righteous angelic spirits in the high heavens. Gathered together at the place called Armageddon, which we know, is down on the earth somewhere. This is where they will fight over the supremacy of the earth. Revelation chapter 16v16.

To conclude: ~ Genesis 3v18 speaks of a “woman” which Satan will have enmity with. And the “seed of that woman”. So we need to understand who these two are? In order to make any sense of the prophecy.

The “woman” is God’s heavenly host of righteous spirit sons in the high heavens, of which Satan too belonged at one time.

The “seed of the woman” are the Israelites who were adopted by God as his earthly children and whom he called his son at times. Hosea chapter 11v1 shows “When Israel was a child, I loved him and out of Egypt I called my son”. So the Israelites are the seed of the woman whose principle seed was Jesus Christ whom Satan will bruise in the heel.

When the nation of Israel rebelled and destroyed God’s son, he made a new covenant through his son Jesus for a “spiritual Israel” adopted sons through his spirit, Romans chapter 9v25 these replaced the Jews and they became the new seed of the woman whom Satan will have enmity with. The Christian seed on the earth.

As for the seed of Satan, this started when the sons of God left their positions in the high heaven to come to the earth and had offspring with the women on the earth producing freaks of nature, by mixing two life forms together spirit and flesh and blood. As they were unable to return to the high heavens they were confined to the earth until their judgement day. According to Enoch, 7th in line from Adam, to stop them from being with the women of the earth they were given wives of their own to produce offspring, these too became the seed of Satan.

The order of things. The high heavens: ~ Almighty God with his woman, his righteous spirit sons who are in subjection and helpers to him.

The earth’s heavens: ~ Jesus Christ as Lord with his woman, his bride betrothed to him and given to him by his father. These will rule with him and be his helpers also in submission to him.

When the new city heavenly Jerusalem, Zion, comes down from the father to his son he will take his bride there to be with him. The city will also contain all those spirit ones who had been born on the earth by their spirit parents (Rev 7v9, 22v14) they will not need a resurrection to the spirit because they are spirits anyway, and will dwell in that new heavenly city of Zion which will be inhabited by spirit ones only.

 These will be the spirit ones which had been confined to the earth during the last 6,000 years. They will be the new inhabitants of the new Jerusalem and they will be the new 12 spiritual tribes of Israel worshipping inside the city, just as the ancient city where the Jews lived and worshipped in the temple.

Romans chapter 9v25 says “those not my people I will call my people and her who was not beloved I will call my beloved”. They will have access to the tree of life which shows those new inhabitants of the city that are not the Woman of the king, those having access to the tree of life will need life, they are not given eternal life at this time but they will be judged as the 12 tribes of Israel by our king and his woman.

Revelation chapter 22v14 says “blessed are those who wash their robes that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates”. The fact they have access to the tree of life indicates they do not have eternal life at this stage and their lives need to be topped up by the tree of life in order for them to continue living, just like Adam and Eve had until their sinning and being thrown out of the garden, the new spiritual nations of Israel will not be given eternal life until the thousand years have ended.

After the thousand year reign of our lord Jesus ends, Satan will be let loose from the abyss, he will gather all the remaining spirits he can muster and surround the new heavenly city of Jerusalem, Zion. But before he can cause any harm, fire from the heavens will come down upon them and destroy each and everyone of them. Revelation 20v4-11.

                                                    OUR LORD’S LAST SUPPER.

                  bible-21JESUS INSTRUCTS EVERYONE


John chapter 6v1-70 shows the need to listen and to share in this wonderful remembrance celebration of the “living bread” that came down to the earth, Jesus Christ.images (7)Jesus spoke of the manna which his father provided for the Israelite’s when they left Egypt and he pointed out that everyone was provided with the manna to eat including the many Egyptians who travelled with them and without the manna they would have died.

Showing how important it is to understand the difference between the manna in the wilderness and the manna that came down from the father today, the “living bread” through our lord Jesus. 

Again, Jesus tells them from v32, “my father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world”. “For this is the will of my father, that everyone who sees the son and believes in him should have eternal life”.

Jesus says, he is the “living bread” sent down by his father and everyone must eat if they want eternal life and a resurrection on the last day. This bread is for the life of the world and unless you eat the flesh and drink my blood, you have no life in you, so Jesus instructions are for everyone. (6v 52) “This is the bread which came down from heaven not like the bread their father’s ate but this bread they will live forever.

 Jesus is telling them that the bread, the manna, their fathers ate in the wilderness was food for the day only and they had to gather it up everyday  whereas the “living bread” that has come down now from heaven will give eternal life to everyone that eats of it.

 This chapter in John also gives us a greater insight as to the meaning of the bread and what the bread stands for. We need to look at this logically.

It is not the physical body of our lord that is the living bread but the spiritual qualities his body has as verse 63 shows, “it is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail, the words I have spoken to you are spirit and life”. Again, as Peter answered our lord, “you have the words of eternal life and we have believed and have come to know that you are the holy one of God”.

 Remember we are a new creation under the Christ and not under the law of Moses to eat unleavened bread. This law was given to Israel and not to the Gentiles so everyone that insist on eating unleavened bread to remember our lord Jesus will do well to examine whether this is correct, or is it really from the antichrist’s teachings today.

We know the Israelites were instructed to celebrate the “Passover” every year as a reminder of the saving of the first-born when the angel passed over their homes. They were instructed how to celebrate this special meal with only “unleavened bread”.

Again, only the Israelites were instructed to eat of this meal and no foreigners were allowed to eat of it unless they had been circumcised to show they were under the Law of Moses.

The old covenant under Moses and the new covenant under the Christ are two separate covenants.                 images (8)

The old covenant   “Unleavened bread”        The unleavened bread is made up of dead dough (no signs of living dough)

images (12)


The new covenant is the living bread and is made up of live dough, fermented dough. which is better represented by our lord.

Which brings us now to the gathering of the Gentiles and Jews in the new covenant under our lord Jesus as mediator instead of Moses. Under the old covenant through Moses, Gentiles were forbidden to celebrate the Passover by eating of that meal. But, not being under the old covenant means we are not instructed to use “unleavened bread” to remember our lord Jesus.

Paul tells is in 1st Cor 11v17-34 “I received from the lord what I also delivered to you, that the lord Jesus on the night he was betrayed took bread and when he had given thanks he broke it and said, this is my body which is for you do this in remembrance of me. In the same way also the cup, after supper saying this cup is the new covenant in my blood do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of me. For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup you proclaim the lord’s death until he comes”.sacrifice 2Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and the blood of the lord”. When you meet together to remember me wait for everyone. Unworthy manner means not waiting for everyone to join in but eating it is a haphazard way. Everyone should partake of the living bread from Jesus if they want eternal life.(11v33,34)

What is interesting here is: ~ Paul does not specify any particular bread to use because he is talking to the Gentiles so logically speaking, it would not be needed to specify what bread. If it were, Paul would certainly have specified this but the fact that he does not, means no restrictions on what bread to use.

Paul shows the cup represents the new covenant under the Christ not the old covenant under Moses.

Firstly Paul has addressed this letter to “the saints together with all those who call upon Jesus name. Instructions are for everyone. (1v2)

Paul is not pleased with the church in Corinth, he speaks of divisions, (11v18) and v20 Paul shows they are missing the point of the celebration to remember Jesus. He tells them ~ they are not doing it correctly; they were in actual fact belittling the whole event. (11v27-29)

Many had met together and had taken their own food to eat as to the old covenant of the Passover and they ended with the emblems, but Paul shows they were being distracted from the holiness of it and they should eat their food at home instead. They were doing it in an unworthy manner.(11v33, 50) By not waiting for each other they were doing it in a disrespectful way. Once again the point of interest is: – these words are addressed to everyone.

Also 11v23-26 shows both the bread and the wine are to be partaken of by all “in remembrance of me”. Again everyone is instructed to share and it is to be done in remembrance of Jesus, what he has done for us by giving his life, shed blood, for the forgiveness of sins.

Not once do the apostle Paul instruct us as to what bread is used so logic would dictate to us that as we are not Jews under law we do not need to follow their customs and use “unleavened bread” but good wholesome bread with nothing removed the full living bread to represent our lord. Not just a little of our lord as to the unleavened bread but the full bodied living bread of our lord

What about Judas was he present at this very important time? Yes! He was according to all the evidence from the bible. John chapter 13v1-30 v1 shows it was before the Passover and it is interesting here in this account because John makes the difference between the “feast” and the supper they were eating. During supper as Matt, Luke and even Mark showed ~ this supper was not the “feast of the Passover” meal. (v2) The events of that supper shows the apostles thought Jesus was telling Judas to buy food for the “feast” proving it was still future. (v21-31 and v26-29) As the account shows this supper took place a few days prior to the Passover feast and this was when Judas went to the chief priests in order to betray Jesus.

Mark 14v1-13 says the same except v 17 where it confirms Jesus with the 12 and v 20 also confirms there were 12 present. The blood poured out for many was the promise one would have eternal life through faith in him.

Luke 22v1-7 again shows the Passover was near ~ Judas went to the chief priests in order to betray him (v 3, 7) and v 19 says it should be done in “remembrance” of him ~ it is a reminder of what Jesus did for us that is why we partake in the eating of the bread, which symbolises Jesus Christ.

So in all these accounts Judas was present when Jesus passed the bread proving everyone should eat of this living bread if they have faith in Jesus and for the forgiveness of their sins on the basis of sacrifice.

 When should this memorial take place? When we lose someone very dear to us we remember the anniversary of their death so it would be right to remember our lord’s death in the same way.

Although we have not been given a specific date as the old covenant had under Moses to celebrate the Passover, the apostle Paul does say it was the night Jesus was betrayed.  

We also know he was the sacrificial lamb of God to take away our sins and he was put to death on “the day of preparation” the day before the Passover and his body had to be removed and placed in the tomb before the Passover started. John chapter 18v28, 19v31-38.

The day of preparation was the day the lambs were chosen and slaughtered ready for the Passover feast and as the lamb that takes away the sins of the world, Jesus, had to die on this day too.

Let us all remember our lord Jesus and what he has done for us and as we wait for him to return as our king let us remember him in this way just as he has instructed us.

                  DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME!

Our lord’s life, death and resurrection for the 3 ½ years he had been revealed, as the messiah was very eventful.

He did and said many things which are not all recorded in the bible but we have enough to show the sort of person Jesus really was. He was very loving towards his father and his God and he directed us all to honour his father. He also had a great deal of empathy for us on the earth and was moved to great sadness on occasions. Like the time he went to visit his friends Mary and Martha when their brother Lazarus died. (John chapter 11)

The 4 gospel accounts we have today contain different snippets of events but it is good to remember that John’s account was an “eyewitness” account of events. He records this in chapter 21v24-25. This John was also the apostle whom it is said Jesus loved very much.

John chapter 18v10 shows how Peter cut one of the guard’s ears and Jesus healed him but have you ever wondered why Peter would have had a sword with him and why he was not chastised by Jesus for having one while in the Garden with him, did Jesus know about this sword?

Again the account in Luke chapter 22v35-39 gives us the answer. It says “when I sent you out with no purse or bag or sandals, did you lack anything? They said nothing.. But now, let him who has a purse take it and likewise a bag. And let him who has no sword sell his mantle and buy one. And they said look lord here are two swords and he said it is enough”. So this account shows how Peter had a sword with him on that night. It was with Jesus knowledge.

It is of interest to know that some religious groups today feel one should be a conscientious objector where wars or fighting is concerned, who use the account in Matthew chapter 26v51-52 “for all who take the sword will perish by the sword” to show Jesus viewpoint on swords and weapons, but we have the account in Luke where Jesus instructed his apostles to carry a sword with them and condoned Peter having one with him that night in the garden. If this was not so, Jesus would certainly have chastised Peter for having a sword with him. Also, Peter used the sword but he did not die from the sword, but was crucified the same as Jesus so we have a slight difference of opinions here. We also know the Israelite’s went to war with other nations with God’s backing many times. But logic tells us, Jesus would certainly have seen Peter carrying the sword that night. 

This is how the different gospels can compliment each other and with Luke it states in chapter 1v1-5 that Luke had gathered together all the information from those who had been eyewitnesses and he was writing an orderly account for Theophilus so that he would be fully informed. Also Luke made the account of the “actions” of the apostles after Jesus death and resurrection. Acts chapter 1v1-12.

Our lord was willing to come to the earth to change our future even though he knew what he would have to face, a very humiliating and painful death by his own people, the very ones he came to help. But he was willing to come to change the angelic ruling parties over the earth and replace them with his kingdom of righteousness instead.

God’s people had been under the gentile nations since 605 BC when they were handed over to the Babylonians for their unfaithfulness. Now they were under the Romans who occupied their city of Jerusalem, and instead of being happy the messiah had arrived to free them, after being confronted with their new king of Judah, Jesus, they preferred to stay under the nations instead by declaring, “we have no king but Caesar”. (John 19v15) They were a very ungrateful people it’s no wonder the gentiles were invited to share in the worship of our lord Jesus and today, two thousand years later, you will find Christians around the earth still putting faith in him as their saviour and the Jews? They are still under the laws of Moses today instead of being a free people, they have chosen to remain under the gentile nations instead of being a free.

While on the earth Jesus taught by Parables which are stories with meanings. Twice he went to Jerusalem and found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, also money changers at their business, and making a whip of cords he drove them all with the sheep and oxen out of the temple, and he poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. And he said “take these things away you shall not make my father’s house a house of trade”. John chapter 2v13-18, John shows this was at the beginning of his ministry then later he did the same things again according to Luke chapter 19v28-47 after Jesus had entered into the city on a colt and was greeted by the crowds saying, “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest”. This took place when he knew his end was near but just before this he visited his friends where Mary anointed him with costly nard.

Six days before the Passover Jesus was with his disciples at the home of his friends Mary, Martha and their brother Lazarus, the one whom he resurrected from the dead, and while they were there Mary poured a pound of pure costly ointment of Nard and anointed the feet of Jesus. This was to prepare him for his death. (John chapter 12v1-9)

John chapter 12v12-20 shows Jesus going to Jerusalem for the feast of the Passover and when the crowds heard he was going they all wanted to see him and Lazarus, whom he resurrected.

images (10)

The crowds took palm branches and went out to meet him, crying, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the lord, even the King of Israel”.

“Fear not, daughter of Zion, your king is coming sitting on an ass’s colt” (v15) (This had been prophesied in Zech 9v9) Jesus went into the temple and found all the money changers there and selling goods inside too, he was very angry and turned over the tables changing money and said to them, “this is a house of prayer but you make it a den of robbers”. (Matthew chapter 21v12,13)

Then the time of the Passover drew near and Jesus performed a similar act to that of  Mary washing our lord’s feet now at this last meal he will share with his apostles he too washed the feet of his disciples. Chapter 13v1-33 shows the events of this last meal Jesus shared with his friends. Note, it was Satan that entered into Judas to betray him. (John 13v27, Luke 22v3)images (12)

It was now the “day of preparation” the day before the Passover, where the lambs were chosen and slaughtered ready for the feast of the Passover. Jesus had been chosen as the Lamb of God to be sacrificed for the world for the forgiveness of sins. John 1v29 tells us “Behold the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world” and John also confirms this was the day before the Passover in chapter 18v28 where those accusing Jesus waited outside because they did not want to be unclean for the coming Passover.  

Jesus went about the whole of the area of Judea publicly and openly preaching and teaching and now, after this last supper with his friends, his disciples, he went across the Kidron valley where he often went to the garden. Where Judas who had betrayed him took a band of soldiers and officers who had torches and weapons to arrest him.

They seized Jesus and bound him and took him to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas. All under the shadow of darkness and away from the city where they would not be seen for fear of the people.images (13)images (15)Jesus was handed over to Pilate for sentencing but he could find nothing wrong with him and wanted to release him but the Jews rose up and declared “if you release this man you are not Caesar’s friend” (John 19v12) when Pilate heard these words he had no choice than to sentence Jesus. Again Pilate tried to free Jesus by telling them, “behold your king” but they all replied, “we have no king but Caesar”.images (21)Then Pilate took Jesus and scourged him and the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe, they came up to him saying, “Hail, king of the Jews” and struck him with their hands. (John 19v1-4)images (16) Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe and again Pilot showed him to the Jews who wanted him dead, and he told them he could find no fault in him and they should crucify him themselves. But they wanted him crucified by Pilot.  

images (17)

Then they took Jesus out after sentencing him, bearing his own cross to the place called the place of the skull, in Hebrew, Golgotha. There they crucified him with two others. Pilate wrote a sign and placed it over him, “Jesus of Nazareth, king of the Jews”, and although the Jews complained, it was left. It was also written in Hebrew, Latin and in Greek. (John chapter 19v17-23)

Although the artists impression of Jesus bearing his own cross seems right, we are drawn to the fact that Jesus would have been clothed because the guards cast lots to have his robe which was without seems.

And again, after he had been crucified John shows in chapter 19v31, this took place on the day before the Passover. Also Mark’s account in 15v42, shows he was crucified on the third hour and remained on the cross until the ninth hour when he died so for those six hours he was suspended and humiliated and in pain. (Mark 15v25-35) Also Luke tells us in chapter 23v44-46, ““it was now about the sixth hour and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour while the sun’s light failed and the curtain of the temple was torn in two”. Thus signifying the temple in Jerusalem was no longer the spiritual house of God just as Jesus had said earlier, “destroy this temple and raise it up in three days”.

Do we really appreciate everything our lord did for us in coming to the earth in order to change our future?

John chapter 19v25-28, shows the depth of Jesus love. While he was in excruciating pain his thoughts were still for those whom he loved, his mother and the disciple he loved, John. It shows Mary standing near the cross with John and he tells John “behold your mother” and looking at his mother he said “woman behold your son”. And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home to care for her.

Why would you think Jesus would have done this? We know the sons of Mary, Jesus half-brothers, did not put faith in him as the messiah so they would not have provided spiritual help for her, whereas John would become her spiritual son to care for her spiritual needs. So even though Jesus was dying his thoughts and feeling were still on other people and not for himself.

          Are we not proud to have such a wonderful king over us?

We have seen artists impressions of Jesus bearing his own cross which look rather large and cumbersome but was this really so? It takes logic to really understand the situation from the bible’s viewpoint.

images (11)

There are many clues and this artists impression seems the most likely. The cross refers to a “cross-piece” of wood just like the picture shows above and to crucify someone means fixing someone to that piece of wood by nailing their out-stretched arms and hands. Jesus gave us a detailed account of this when he told Peter how he will die in the same way.

Recorded in John chapter 21v18-20 Jesus says, when you are old, you will stretch out your hands and another will gird you and carry you where you do not want to go” and according to history, Peter was crucified too. 2nd Peter 1v14 shows he understood Jesus words to him earlier.

If we go through these words step by step we can get a better understanding of them. “You will stretch out your hands and another will gird you”, the definition to gird someone is to bind them. Once the person stretches out their arms someone will tie them to the cross to steady them ready for nailing through the hands, the body would have to be firm in order to do this, possibly laying down. images (20)After all if you knew someone was going to hammer a nail through your hands you would not be able to keep still, so your arms would need to be tied down onto the crossbeam.

After the actual nailing takes place, the person is “lifted up” and as he had already been fixed to the tree with bounded arms and nailed down, he would have been raised up and placed on an upright support, which would support the weight of the body from falling down. (Acts 5v30 and 10v39 (lifted up upon a tree) With Jesus we know although he had been nailed to the cross-piece, the tree,  he was still alive for up to six hours.

Having a support to place, or suspend, the tree,or cross, would also explain why the legs of the two on either side of Jesus had their legs broken to hasten their death as the Sabbath was near. It seems logical that their feet were near the ground and they could raise themselves up to get relief from their chest feeling cramped. Again, artists impressions of Jesus on the cross shows him to be suspended high above the ground, but, we have Jesus speaking to his mother and John and by this time he would have been very weak and would need to be quite close to them to speak to them. 

This being lifted up also signified something more in his case which we shall cover later.

The nailing of the hands to the cross-piece lets the person die slowly by losing the lifeblood onto the ground. His heart would continue pumping the lifeblood through the body until the blood-loss was such, there would not be enough blood to pump.

Jesus was slaughtered and his blood poured out upon the ground just as the Lamb of God. Isa 53v12, Lev 17v11, Heb 9v14,22 and 1st John 1v7. Being “lifted up” upon the main support, is also very significant too as John 8v28 shows. This “lifting up” signifies far more, Jesus likens it to a “saving power”.

In John 3v14 it says “as Moses lifted up the copper serpent in the wilderness so must the son of man be lifted up that whoever believes in him might have eternal life”. We can read this account in Numbers 21v9 and 2nd Kings 18v4 where the Israelites were moaning about Moses so much their God sent them poisonous serpents to bite them and many died but when they again repented, Moses was instructed to make a copper serpent and to “lift it upon a tree” so that when they were bitten they had to look at the copper serpent put faith in God and they would live.images (18)

This was an act of faith. Later the copper serpent was used as a symbol of worship so it was later destroyed. Jesus likening himself to this copper serpent being lifted up shows it would remind people of what he did for us and by remembering him and the way he gave his shed blood for our sins, we will have eternal life. So being “lifted up” in this way today (as a copper serpent) we are reminded of his life and what he did for us.

Although the cross which has symbolised our lord’s death is a reminder today for us, we do not want to end up like unfaithful Israel and worship the cross instead of what it symbolises. Jesus being lifted up so that we can see him and put faith in him is placed high in all the churches today. download (6)

This is what Jesus meant by likening himself to that copper serpent that after his death he will be lifted up and people will look upon that cross even after two thousand years after his death we are still reminded of what he has done for us by seeing that cross raised up high in all our churches today.

We also need to remember that the copper serpent was only needed as a saving power while the people were in the wilderness and once they entered into the promised land it was not needed any more. So too, the cross today which is used to draw all people to put faith in Jesus will not be needed or used after our lord returns and we are in the “promised land” under his kingdom.

It is interesting too, that three of the gospel writers say someone (Simon of Cyre’ne) was brought to carry the cross-piece for Jesus whereas John says Jesus carried it himself. John was an eyewitness after all.

It is also of interest Ps 22v14 mentions Jesus feet being pierced too and Luke is the only writer to mention Jesus feet. All the others, even Jesus himself, only refers to his HANDS and his SIDE which was pierced. Luke 24v39, John 20v24-30, and as the custom was to wear open sandals it would have been easy to see his feet even so, Jesus does not mention them so again we are uncertain about this right now. What we do know is that his hands and side were pierced, and again, if his feet were pierced also HOW were they pierced? To what would they have been fixed to? He had been lifted up and suspended on a tree.

Also, Matthew 27v35-37 says:~ “when they had crucified him ~ and over his head they put the charge against him ~~ “this is Jesus of Nazareth the king of the Jews”. Matthew indicates the notice was placed OVER his head like a placard around his neck. John on the other hand says:~ and put it on the cross. Either way the sign would hang over his head like a necklace or medallion with the charge of his crime.

                 “Jesus of Nazareth the king of the Jews”.(John 19v19)

 After his death Joseph of Arimathe’a who was a disciple of Jesus but secretly for fear of the Jews asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus. He took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloths with spices as is the burial custom of the Jews.

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early and saw that the stone had been taken away, images (25)after running to tell Peter and John she said, they have taken the lord out of the tomb and we do not know where they have laid him.

Just as the bible shows, on the third day Jesus will be resurrected by his father, so that he will be able to return to his father after achieving his goal down on the earth.

It is of interest to note the stone had been removed because we know Jesus was to be resurrected as a spirit and not flesh and blood, so why remove the stone? Quite simply because the angels would need to remove the body of flesh and blood and hide it so that it could not be worshipped and they would have to remove the stone in order to do this.

Jesus resurrection is also in fulfillment of what he said to the Jews when they asked him for a sign of authority as to why he had turned the money-changers and dealers out of the temple. This was the sign they asked for, his resurrection on the third day. He told them “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up”. The Jews were slow to understand what Jesus meant but he meant the temple in Jerusalem was no longer the seat of faith for God’s people but it has been replaced by our lord as the temple in this body whom is the chief corner stone and the temple will be built up upon Jesus our lord. With the apostles as the twelve foundations stones. The temple of God will be built up upon the body of our lord and his apostles. So, a new temple was raised up in three days. (John 2v18-23)

After his resurrection Jesus appeared many times to different ones to prove he had been raised back to the spirit world. The acts of the apostles show he visited his apostles and told them not to leave Jerusalem until after they receive the holy spirit which is to be poured out upon them. He also told them “you will be witnesses of me to the ends of the earth.” (chapter 1v3-8)

It was also at this time the apostles wanted to know if Jesus was going to restore the kingdom back to them again. Thus confirming the kingdom was removed from Israel in 605BC.

With Jesus no longer with them it was time for them to have guidance through the “Councillor” that Jesus promised them. John chapter 14v25-30 shows,” But the Councillor, the holy spirit whom the father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you”. So they will have a spiritual tutor to help them from now on after they receive the Holy Spirit.

This came while they were gathered in the upper room and the Holy Spirit was poured out upon the apostles and they were all baptised with holy spirit and able to speak in different languages ready to preach to the different nations. They were so noisy that some people passing outside thought they were drunk. (chapter 2v1-19) But Peter standing with the eleven lifted up his voice and said, for these men are not drunk as you suppose” it says and in the last days it shall be God declares, “I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh”.

To conclude. These are the details given by John.The crucifixion is described this way in John 21v18-20. You will stretch out your hands, and someone else will “gird” you. The definition to GIRD is “put belt round, or encircle. Once the hands has been outstretched he would have been “girded” or tied with a belt or rope to secure the arms to the cross piece of wood ready for the nails to be hammered into the hands.

He would have been placed on the ground so that the nails could be hammered into place, the actual act of lifting him up off the ground, would be raising him up on the tree or cross, then the tree or cross would have been held in an upright position supporting the weight of his body. Peter fully understood this.   Some scriptures can help us understand it too. Peter was crucified according to history. John 21v18-20, John 8v28, 2nd Peter 2v14-19, 2nd Peter1v14.

Yes! Peter knew when his time was near when he said “Since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our lord Jesus showed me” 2nd Peter 1v14. He was fully aware of this fact that he was going to be crucified the same as our lord was.

To conclude then, when you see the cross of our lord placed high in all the places of worship today remember what he has done for us, by choosing to come down to the earth in order to change our future by ridding the earth’s heavens from all the angelic gentile rulers who make up “this system of things” which we have had from the time our forefather Adam was turned out of the garden.

We need a new heavens, a new ruling kingdom over us in order to produce a new earth, and only God’s kingdom will do this.

That is why Jesus taught: ~
