Jesus ‘Declared He’s God of Old Testament’

Author: Christ’s divinity clearly revealed in original Aramaic

Actor Jim Caviezel spoke Aramaic as he portrayed Jesus in “The Passion of the Christ.”

SOURCE

An American pastor and author who has produced his own translation of the New Testament based on the Aramaic text claims Jesus openly declared numerous times that He is the Creator God of the OLD Testament.

Aramaic is the ancient language believed by many scholars to be the language Jesus Himself mainly spoke in the first century, as depicted in Mel Gibson’s popular 2004 film, “The Passion of the Christ.”

“With all the Aramaic references to the name of the Deity,” says Rev. David Bauscher of Cambridge. N.Y., “the [Aramaic] New Testament not only teaches that Yeshua (Jesus) is divine, but it names Him as the Lord Jehovah of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who created Heaven and Earth, appeared to Abraham and appeared and gave the Law to Moses on Mount Sinai, and it so names Him over 80 times.”

His latest work is titled, “The Aramaic New Testament in Plain English,” with details provided at his website, AramaicNT.com.

Why Don’t Pastors Teach Bible Prophecy?!

Prophecy Fulfilled

By Gordon King

Hello folks, I pray that God is guiding you in spirit and truth!

I went to church today, as I do every Sunday.  The pastor led a great sermon and nine people were baptized in water today! 

Praise God!

However, there is one thing that really bothers me about most churches today,  I have never heard any teaching about bible prophecy!  I have a strong craving for biblical prophecy.  Prophecy is not only found in Revelation, but throughout the bible.  God even tells us that there is a special blessing for those that read, hear and believe his prophecy!

Revelation 1  New International Version

Prologue

1 The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

So what gives?  Why is prophecy not taught in the church?  It is part of God’s word.  In fact about 30% of the bible (according to sources on the internet) is prophecy.  So why is this not taught?!  This withholding of God’s Word from the church is, to me, a sin.  I am probably going to get many comments on what I just said, but, what else would you call it?  I don’t know, but, it can’t be a good thing.  Could it?

God gave us his prophecy for a reason, not just to fill the pages of a book!  He gave it to us so that we would know what is coming, to prepare and watch.  Bible prophecy not only tells us what is to come, but is a witness to the authenticity of God’s Word.  Bible prophecy therefore, is proof for the existence of God!

So why don’t most churches today teach about prophecy?  Well, this is why I think that they don’t:

  • 1)  Lack of knowledge and education.
  • 2)  Afraid to make people uncomfortable.
  • 3)  Believe that Revelation is allegorical.
  • 4)  Afraid to teach judgement and wrath.
  • 5)  Only want to teach love, peace and harmony.
  • 6)  Do not believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ.

I don’t know about you, but, I say “HogWash!”.  God wants us to read and study the entire bible, not just the parts that feel good.  We are not to pick and choose what to study and believe.  The entire bible is the truth and word of God Almighty!  If you do not believe that then why do you believe any of it?  What makes a pastor better than anyone else, that he can choose what he wants to preach about?  Nothing!  Not one darn thing!  Not that I don’t appreciate the work they do for the Lord or feel that they don’t have a special calling on their life.   They do, of course.  With that being said, I believe that this places a unique responsibility upon them.  They need to take serious the entire word of God.  They need to be teaching the church all of what God has to tell us and not just bits and pieces!!!  They will be held accountable before God.

I thank God for the pastors that we do have who are not afraid to speak the whole truth.  I also pray for all of the other pastors to grow a spiritual backbone and teach the whole bible!   We don’t have much time left, Jesus is returning soon for his bride. 

Many people believe as many pastors do: “Teach love and peace, but, just leave out all of the difficult stuff!  That’s not important!”  Baloney!  If you are one of them, then I pray for God to bless you and show you the whole truth, not just a part of it!  I say this out of love and compassion.

May God Bless you all!       Praise God!     Maranatha!      Come quickly Lord Jesus, we eagerly await your return!      🙂

God’s Love, Our Obedience to Him

John 3:16  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but, have everlasting life”.

The Return of the Prodigal Son   1773 vom Künstler erworben

By Gordon King

God loves his children much more than they can comprehend.  His love runs deep, deeper than any human love can truly understand.  He has given us his word to be steadfast and faithful to us.  To comfort us and guide us in our daily walk with him.  He has promised to supply us with all of our needs.  To be with us always and forever.  To never leave us.  To give us eternal life with him.

What does he ask for in return?  God wants our love in return.  He wants us as his children to obey him.  To be walking with him daily.  To have a close and personal relationship with him.  He wants our love and adoration of him and for him.  To recognize just how magnificent, awe inspiring and great that he is.  To ask him for help in everything that we do.  To give him thanks, praise and glory.  To follow his commands.  He wants us to be the grateful children that he originally created and intended for us to be.

Why do so many Christians now suffer?  Why do they grieve over the things that God said he would provide?  Where is God when they need him the most?  Why doesn’t he answer their prayers?  Is he still with them?  Has he left them like he said he never would?

I will answer these questions from my own perspective.  As a believer and follower of Jesus since I was seventeen years old, I have walked away from God many, many times.  I have sinned and not obeyed what God has commanded me to do.  Of how to behave as a Christian, of how to interact with God the way the he tells us to.  As a consequence of my actions I have suffered immensely for it.  God has let me suffer.  He has not answered many of my prayers in the past. 

Why has God let these terrible things happen to me?   Was I being punished?  I sure thought that I was.  God let these things happen to show me the error of my ways.  He was waiting for me to cry out to him.  Waiting with open arms for me to come running back to him.  As in the parable of the prodigal son, I came back to God several times only to walk away again.  When I say walk away, I don’t mean that I disowned God or stopped believing in him.  But, I was not living the life that he meant for me to live.  I did not have a close and personal relationship with him.  I was not doing as he commanded for me to do for him.

Over the past two years I have come home.  I ran to God as fast as I could run.  God was there waiting for me with open arms.  Just like he promised me he would.  He has held me close.  Closer than ever before in my life.  Do I still have tribulation?  Yes.  Do I still encounter persecution?  Oh yes!  Does it bother me?  Not so much anymore.  Why you may ask?  Well, God is with me!!!   He comforts me and gives me peace and joy in my times of troubles.  He is in the driver’s seat, he is in control of my life.  I love God now more than I ever have.  I am so very close to God right now, yet I want to be closer still.  I pray daily for God to keep me close to him and not let go, for my flesh is weak.

If only the Christians who have walked away from God would turn back to him.  If they would love and obey him.  Seek to be closer to him and be with him.  Walk with him daily.  Then more of their prayers would be answered.  Miracles in their lives would begin to manifest.  They would discover the gifts that God has given them as believers. 

God has been answering my prayers almost on a daily basis.  He has given me insight, vision and discernment along with other gifts.  My gifts are continuing to develop each and everyday.  I thank God for all that he has given me and will continue to give me.  I have recently been praying ( and prayers from a friend ) for the Holy Spirit to speak through me in tongues.  He answered my prayers a couple of weeks ago.  I awoke in the middle of the night speaking in tongues!  What a miracle.  Such a gift to treasure.  I love speaking in tongues.  I speak in tongues daily.  What a blessing!!!  I feel so much closer to God when I speak in tongues.  And a great benefit of speaking in tongues is that Satan and his demons do not know what I am saying.   Praise God!

Now is the time to return to God.  To seek the Spirit.  To strengthen our faith.  Time is of the essence.  We need to be doing God’s work.  We need to be praying for God to pour out his Spirit upon the world for revival.  For eyes to be opened and hearts to be softened.  For Souls to be saved.  Now is the time!

Praise God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit!  Amen
