The Last Supper III

Morning to the watchmen and women of the temple of the omnipresent Christ.  We started this series on the Last Supper of Christ.  This is a figurative expression depending on how it used in the Old Testament.  At the end of our busy day we sit down in the quiet of our house and commune with our Lord.  Our job as a watchman has come to an end for the day.  Time to relax and break bread with out saviour.

For those who follow we started our trek in the city of Babylon in the year of 538 AD.  King Cyrus has decreed that the exiled Jews in Babylon can return to Jerusalem. 

Historical reference

  1. King David declared Jerusalem the capital of the Jews, 1000 BC. and the kingdom was divided into two parts, The Kingdom of Israel and The Kingdom of Judea,[ The Kingdom of Israel was also known as Canaan,” the land of milk and honey”], King David started building the first Temple of the Jews.
  2. King Davids son, king Solomon finished building the Temple around 950 BC.
  3. King Nebuchadnezzar II laid siege to Jerusalem and destroyed the first Jewish temple around 586 BC.

That set the scene for us to return to Jerusalem our journey would take four months, 900 miles.  Crossing through the land of ” milk and honey” to our capital Jerusalem.  There was a sense of excitement when the day came that we finally got started on our journey.  The caravan was all in a line , at head of the line,  the priests carrying the Ark, behind them the elders and the rest of us.  We had the animals, camels and donkeys to pull our carts and everyone else walked.  King Cyrus gave us gold, silver and precious jewels to help rebuild the temple that was destroyed 48 yrs earlier by king Nebuchadnezzar II.  We were leaving the land of taxes and heathen deities, to travel to Canaan, where there was not a sliver of taxes in the” land of milk and honey” and worship in faith an unseen God and not a marble statue.

Reminds me of the time when the disgruntled goodmen and woman arrived on the shores of America in 1607.  Just like the Jewish people, to escape the taxation and worshipped of deities and heathen practices of the church.  To build a new temple unto the Lord and worship in faith to an unseen God and not a marble statue.

It is always an awesome thing when the Lord pulls you from exile because you did not listen to Him in the past. It is always our responsibility to reengage the Lord in your everyday activities.   Another thing that the Lord chose you to build a new temple unto Him. 

It was customery to start the journey everyday for the elders to present the prayers and concerns of the people to the priests to convey the concerns to our Lord. Once the days invocations concluded the command was give to move out.  The journey was finally underway.  It has been estimated that 50,000 Jewish people made the trek to back to the , Kingdom of Isreal and the Kingdom of Judea over the course of time.

900 Miles

We traveled north from Babylon along the river Euphrates to a city called Mari, from there we would travel south to the river Jordan and follow it down to Jerusalem.  With people walking and with the animals traveling along side of us, we averaged 3 miles per hour, 10 hours a day.  On a good day we might average 30 miles a day. 

When the command was given to set up camp for the night everyone pitched in.  The children that were old enough took care of the animals.  The women prepared the meal of the night; this would consist of dates, various dried fruits, bread and wine.  Men would put up the tents, fires were started to ward of the darkness and the watchmen were set to guard the people against hostile bands.

This was the greatest time of the night for me and my family.  We would gather around the fires to eat our meal and listen to the elders.  They told us stories that had been handed down from generation to generation and of the prophets and the sages.  “What was, what is and what was to come”.  How the second Temple that would be built, was going to be torn down and in three days it would be rebuilt in the hearts, not of stone or marble, of the predestined.  I know this story to be true because I witness it firsthand in my own heart a few years later.  All the while the smoke spiraled up into the starlit night to the heavens, reaching the nostrils of the Lord.  The sounds within of the camp died down and everyone went to sleep.

  Tomorrow we will continue our predestined journey to eternity in Jerusalem.

Look at Christ on the Cross and tell him, I am a sinner, I want to follow you, forgive me for my sins and the sins of those committed against me I believe at that point you are reborn and Christ will advocate for you in the Throne room.

Remember to dine in the Throne room with your Father, ask questions and say your prayers.  If you do not know Christ, ask Him into your life.

 

 

 

 

 

Christ has been Cruxified

Morning to the remnant of Christ. Today I am going to interject my thoughts on the recent shootings at an highschool here in America.  I normally don’t do that but today it calls for an explanation of events that led to this shooting.

America was founded upon the belief in an unseen God, the Hebrew God, Jehovah, people came from Europe to America, to escape the tyranny of the papacy and kings because of the  high rates of taxation on the poor. The papacy made it law around 1588 AD for the poor to give ten per-cent of their earnings to the church and the kings followed suit and did the same thing.  This was all done under the guise of Christianity.  This is also why the Judean Jews were returning to Jerusalem where there were no taxes, (Last Supper series) 538 BC. The Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judea lived by the Mosaic Law. The mosaic law required a tithe on the first year then the third year and then on the seventh year.  This was ten per-cent of your agriculture or animals that your land produced.  Money was forbidden only in migrating circumstances and then there was a penalty on top of that of five per-cent.

If you been following me on the series about the Great Whore.  A little clue the great whore is money. She sells her goods and you pay the price, then you want to drink more of her blood because she looks beautiful. Just like the apple in the Garden take a bite of her beauty and you are predestined to filthy clothes .

So for all you demons out there telling folks that tithing is legal and tie it to someones salvation. Your only telling a half-truth.  A lie from the Devil.

America in the 1800’s taught their children the Word Of God at an early age all the way into highschool. Somewhere in the 1900’s the families ( churches are culpable) strayed away from the teachings of Christ. Every time the Jewish people strayed away from the Lord there was a price to be had, a judgement.

In 1963 they took prayer out of the schools the final nail in Christ. America’s blood and life was flowing down her dress of righteousness.  The Roman centurion plunged a spear into her heart. It is only a matter of time till she falls. America was dressed in righteousness now it is turning to filthy rags.

The late mid 60’s the children decided to become anti-establishment, sex ,drugs,rock and roll was the new god. Burn your bras, defy your government and the list of new idols grew.  Parents could not discipline their children anymore. Social media took over the parental controls of the parents and the churches figured out new ways to fleece the flock preaching all the right pundits. When you go fishing in order to catch the right fish, you need the right bait.

America today, you have adults running around protesting something about rights, all the while they wear a pink hat on their head that resembles a vagina.  You have the anti-american youngsters that want to overthrow the spirit of America. You have the Black Lives Matter group advocating the killing of police officers. Many police officers have been killed since the first of the year. Then over the years the Government has been tearing down the Constitution of America.  California is going to release 10,000 sex offenders on the streets.  This is just a snippet of life in America.

The Churches let’s see.  A pastor in Arkansas gets a standing ovation for sexually assaulting a 17 yr old after apologizing to the congregation. A church in Texas spends 100k on an arching aquarium that cost six thousand dollars a month to maintain. A Catholic college in Ohio is going to build a dorm for transsexuals and have decided to take out the pronouns he and she from the Bible and make them gender neutral. A women Rabbi decided that our Father sexually assaulted Eve. A pastor in Florida sexually assaulted two seventeen year olds.

A 18-year-old kills 17 kids and the pundits can’t figure out what the cause is for children killing children.  What’s funny is that you do not see this in the Bible belt states like Texas.  Is Christ important, Yes.  Progressive socialism just like the Roman centurion  driving a spear into the heart of America.  She will only bleed so long and our Father will release the 4 horsemen for judgement.  Her death is only hours away won’t be long now.

I belong to Christ not a made up religion. I refuse to be dressed in filthy clothes or to bait children with gimmicks or half-truths of Christ.  tomorrow we will leave Babylon and travel to Jerusalem.  Last Supper II

Look at Christ on the Cross and tell himI am a sinner, I want to follow you, forgive me for my sins and the sins of those committed against me I believe at that point you are reborn and Christ will advocate for you in the Throne room.

Remember to dine in the Throne room with your Father, ask questions and say your prayers.  If you do not know Christ, ask Him into your life.

 

The Last Supper I

Morning to the elect Christians hope everyone is having a great day in Christ. Today my Lord has put in my spirit to take a journey to the Last Supper with Christ.  Before we get there we have to understand the history behind the Biblical narratives. This is one thing the churches fail to teach the Christian.  the social and economic strata that affected everyone from the times of the ancients.

It is one thing to speak or post scripture like; ” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth o in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

You can give an explanation of the verse but it is another thing to understand from history how we got to that statement.  You have to understand the times and social and economic conditions of the Jews  that led to that statement.

The last supper of Christ and His Disciples requires the same treatment. What was the social and economic conditions in 33 AD that affected everyday life for the Jewish people in Jerusalem ?  The intercourse between Roman power, Rabbinical teachings surrounding everyday life in Jerusalem. How did this affect the remnant that followed Christ?

We start our trek in Babylon 538 BC where the Jewish people were exiled to. What was life-like for the Jews?  We will take a look at the social strata.

There were several levels in the social hierarchy with the king at the top and the slaves at the bottom. In between, in descending order, were the nobles, the free citizens and those in military and civil service.

Taxes on the populace; they were taxed on grain, barley,wool,horses, live stock and at times silver. The man in charge of collecting the taxes was called the Grand Vizer.   The tax rate was 10 per cent of all taxable goods. This was to support military campaigns, infrastructure support and government buildings plus the building of temples to their gods.

The earliest form of taxation concerning money came from the Greeks. It is worthy to note that silver was sometimes used for taxation. The Mosaic Law forbade the taxation in the form of coinage only from the produce of the land.  Keep this in mind.

Babylon Law was called the Hammurabi’s Code which covered everything from theft, to murder, to adultery and abuse. Even though you had a variety of crimes the punishment was always the same, ” an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth”. If you killed another man you were put to death.  There are other nuisances to this code.  If the crime was committed between classes the higher the classes The more severe the punishment.

Mat.5:38, Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:  What you see here is an influence of Old Testament to the New Testament.

Housing;  the very poor,  lived in tiny townhouses, typically they had three levels of living space. The courtyard, or first floor, in each house was very important. Behind the front door, a visitor might find a tiny garden and domesticated animals such as chickens. In Babylon, people threw their trash out their front door. Now and then, the city covered the streets with a new layer of clay. This buried the trash, but that made the level of the street higher.  Sanitation was bad and the stench must have been something.  Human waste appears to have been done in open pits outside the city.  So the waste was keep in vessels in the house to be disposed of later.

Religion: In Babylonian religion, the ritual care and worship of the statues of deities was considered sacred; the gods resided simultaneously in their statues in temples and in the natural forces they embodied. An elaborate ceremony of washing the mouths of the statues appeared sometime in the Old Babylonian period. The pillaging or destruction of idols was considered to be loss of divine patronage; during the Neo-Babylonian period.

The elect Jews believed in faith an unseen God.

This is only a small silver of what life was like for the Jewish slaves in Babylon 538 AD. They were used to take care of the temples, statues and government buildings.  Life was harsh and the stench of death was everywhere. So when they sat down for the Last Supper of the night with their Lord.  The smells of the house and the city floated across the table.  It had to have been awful.  The elect never lost faith in the sight of death and broke bread with the Lord. The Last Supper.

Tomorrow we will meet in the streets of Babylon 538 AD.  Come with a thirst and hunger, Christ will feed you.

Look at Christ on the Cross and tell him, I am a sinner, I want to follow you, forgive me for my sins and the sins of those committed against me I believe at that point you are reborn and Christ will advocate for you in the Throne room.

Remember to dine in the Throne room with your Father, ask questions and say your prayers.  If you do not know Christ, ask Him into your life.
