Who Is The True Israel?
By Brother Nathanael Kapner
Who’s the true Israel, the “Israel of God?”
If you look at a map, you won’t find the “Israel of God.”
You’ll only see the genocidal state of Israel. What’s the capital? Tel Aviv or Jerusalem?
After sucking up to Sheldon Adelson, John Hagee says Jerusalem’s the capital. He’s just a useful goy.
[Clip: “I consider the Adelsons some of the greatest citizens in the United States of America for all the good they do for this nation and the Jewish people around the world. The fact is, Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years. That’s before Washington existed and before Barak Obama was a community organizer in Chicago.”]
You stupid ass. Jerusalem was not the sovereign capital of Israel for 3,000 years, it was mostly a tributary of surrounding empires.
And here’s your ‘holy’ Jerusalem, Mr Hagee…spiritually called, “Sodom and Gomorrah.”
That’s right. In the New Testament book of The Revelation, the Jewish Jerusalem is called Sodom and Gomorrah.
More to the point, it’s called “Sodom and Egypt,” citing the Old Testament enemies of the Israel of God.
The book of Revelation also shows Jewish Jerusalem to be the enemy of the Israel of God by identifying it as the place “where Christ was crucified.”
With no hope in sight, God soon destroyed the Jewish capital, described in The Revelation as the woman drunk with the blood of Old and New Testament saints.
There are two Jerusalems, the Bible says.
The earthly Jerusalem, where Christ was crucified, and the heavenly Jerusalem, the Church.
It was at the EARTHLY JERUSALEM that the Jews cried out, “His blood be upon us and on our children,” when demanding Pilate to crucify Christ.
Jerusalem became a river of blood…and the blood keeps on flowing.
The “Israel of God,” says St Paul in Galatians, is not made up of Jews who circumcise themselves and shed the blood of innocents.
It’s made up of angels, saints, and Christians–God’s “new creation”–who worship at the heavenly Jerusalem, “The Church.”
“You are come to the heavenly Jerusalem, to a company of angels, to the Church of the firstborn, to the spirits of just men made perfect,” says St Paul in the book of Hebrews.
The Church is the “Israel of God,” NOT Jews, who St Paul calls the “enemies of the Gospel.”
The first Christians, most of them former Jews, understood this.
But useful goys, like John Hagee, don’t have a clue.
How do you like Hagee sucking up to Adelson, the FAT CAT JEW who operates gambling and prostitution casinos in Vegas?
Just FOLLOW THE MONEY and ALL of Hagee’s ‘christianity” goes by the wayside while he OPENS HIS MOUTH WIDE for illicit bucks to fall down his throat and a little on the side to fund his ‘christians for IsraHELL lobby.

Those of us who are baptized into Christ and have put on Christ are the Israel of God (Galatians 3:27).
The Jews are a desolate people, devoid of any real life (life in Christ). Their culture is that of death, and their service is to their father the Devil (Saint John 8:44).
History also proves the heretic Hagee wrong, as you said Jerusalem was the tributary of previous empires (Macedonian under Alexander the Great, Ptolemaic Egyptian, Persian, and Roman).
This shows how evangelical heretics have neither a grasp of basic history or Scripture. The most damning thing to the Jews is that even their own prophets who they murdered, cry out against them, testifying to their sinful lust for power.
Those who hold to the heretical Scofield Reference Bible, definitely haven’t a clue.
I went to Hagee’s site and put in a prayer request that we pray for Pastor Hagee to come to the understanding that the modern day Jews and Israel are not “God’s chosen people,” and that God help him understand this through learning the truth from Brother Nathanael Kapner at realjewnews.com.
And I also referenced Jack Bernstein’s online books and Benjamin Freedman’s amazing 1961 speech.
I presume that Hagee himself doesn’t read these very often, but somebody there probably does, so perhaps God will make a convert from within.

Jesus warned us about the Synagogue of Satan. Paul warned us too.
So beware, not gullible. Question the authority of your preacher if he or any Bible teacher pushes false murderous, lying covetous fleshly man-made State of Israel that has slaughtered its neighbor for over 70 years and poisoned their wells with typhoid and cholera back in 1948.
1967 Sixty Minute (not Six Day War) by using LSD sprayed on unsuspecting enemy as aggressive acts of war.
Jews are not smarter than everyone else. They have no conscience or integrity, no feelings for others, like robotic worker ants programmed by Satan to cheat and lie, steal to the top of the worldy ant heap.
Plus they killed Jesus and are proud of it. Go figure how God could accept those who reject Him.
“Who Is the True Israel?” is truly a priceless masterpiece, Br. Nathanael, since it really exposes the false narrative of the Jews and their fake, Satanic state, as well as pointing to the Church as the True Israel.
The Jews rejected Jesus, simply because He didn’t fit their image of a Messiah or Savior. They lusted after power, even at the time of the Prophets, whom they had rejected and murdered - a real rebellious, vicious lot, I’d say.
They intimidated Pontius Pilate into having Jesus crucified and yelled, “Let His blood be upon us and upon our children!”
Was this fact ever written in the heretical Scofield Reference Bible, which John Hagee uses to instruct his Evangelical followers? It couldn’t have been; otherwise, he wouldn’t have been preaching heresy and leading his followers astray.
His, and their, grievous mistake is contradicting what the real Scriptures say about the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple in 70 AD and the total expulsion of the Jews from the Holy Land in 135 AD as God’s punishment on the Jews for their disobedience.
There was never to be another earthly Israel again; and, if it was ever re-established, it would eventually doom all Jews (save a small remnant who repent and accept Jesus as the Messiah) to extinction.
Hagee and his followers need to worship God, not the Jews, for the sake of their souls. In worshiping Jews, they violate the First Commandment, which tells all of us not to put false gods before Him.
You have written this Video brilliantly; and, that’s why I admire you and look forward to your Articles.
Christmas will be upon us very soon, and I pray that all will go well with you as you continue doing the Lord’s work.
Just applying common sense how can Jewish people have a right to Israel when:
1) O.T. book of Deuteronomy grants them the land of Israel in perpetuity on the basis of OBEDIENCE. Yet there has been nothing but DIS-obedience e.g. Hollywood, Bolshevism, Bank swindle, Frankfurt School of Cultural Marxism, Neocon etc. (just look at Citizen Fitz comment above which should be turned into a poster!).
Plus most important of all they murdered their Messiah
2) They are NOT “sons of Abraham” since the overwhelming majority (90%) are Ashkenazim and come from the 8th century conversion of the kingdom of Khazar as proven by DNA sampling and outlined in the book the “13th Tribe” by Jewish Marxist professor Koestler (a theory which has now gone mainstream).
This much is clear even before we get into the theological argument.
How much evil could have been avoided if Christians would just use their common sense and stand against evil instead of using some false interpretation of the bible to justify it.
John Hagee is just a modern SAVONAROLA (1452–1498) promising a “New Jerusalem,” promising a “New World Order” but very at the end he was just a deceiver, a fake prophet, just a man negotiating with the POWERS behind the powers of his time.
He could not walk on fire. John Hagee has been already done and his name is Savonarola, we just need to follow the history and literate ourselves for set us free. (Matthew 7:15 & Mark 4:9)
If the Israelis/Jews are so adept with their technological prowess, maybe they should establish their homeland in the middle of the Sahara Desert. They claim to have made Palestine “bloom” fruitfully, so why not make an effort elsewhere under harsher conditions?
There were exactly six Sabbath work years “between” (1) the beginning of the July 64 AD Christian Holocaust that was caused by the Roman Emperor Nero and (2) the beginning of the 70 AD Jewish Diaspora out of Israel.
In other words the 70 AD Jewish Diaspora began on God’s perfect miracle timing on a seventh Sabbath year.
All of the first original leaders of Christianity desired to live in and have their Christian Headquarters located in Israel, but they all stayed very far away from Israel because of their fear of a Christian Holocaust sponsored by the Jewish Leaders. The first original leaders of Christianity were all horribly murdered in 64 AD.
The 70 AD Jewish Diaspora out of Israel brought a Sabbath rest from God, of the hostilities from the Jewish leaders toward the Christians ( as Saint Paul was a former Jewish leader persecutor of the Christians, and that is before Saint Paul’s conversion ).
BN is a rare combination of intellectual acuity, courage and of course faith. We are a sad lot indeed as there is, yet again, only one Lot in our midst. I can think of no one else who is speaking this truth to such terrible earthly power.
The arithmetic of usury is unassailable. Soon, everything on earth will belong to one man, the Antichrist. We mustn’t underestimate the compounding of interest as a central tool in the Beast’s arsenal.
Honest students of the New Testament must surely say on numerous occasions, ‘This verse shows there is no restoration of Israel as taught. That other verse repudiates any idea of an earthly kingdom ruled by a Messiah.’
‘My kingdom is not of this world’ was Christ’s declaration to Pilate.
He is Jesus the Christ in English. The Apostle John wrote ‘These things are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ’, English from Latin from the original Greek. He was never given a Jewish name.
Jesus was not “a Jew”, but of the tribe of Judah and clan of David, but raised a Galilean.
Indeed, an Iraqi Moslem communicating with me said, ‘No Christian person here, or in the Middle East, would say Jesus was a Jew’.
Why do hundreds of millions of Christians, so named, say He was? Why are some of them joining in with ‘Messianic Jews’ who insist on using what they call Hebrew, to speak of Christ and of the Lord God of the Old Testament and ours?
The old Covenant finished when Jesus on the cross, said, ‘It is finished’.
Before He endured the cross, He announced that new Covenant with the words, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for many for the remission of sins’.
The old Covenant ceased. With the new, a heavenly rather than an earthly order was established forever. There is now the new people of God, that holy nation consisting of those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb of God.
The prophets of the old were no longer the vehicle through whom God spoke. He began to speak in a new way to the then Israel, through or in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. The eternal Word was there in the flesh. They hated Him, rejected Him and crucified Him, their Creator.
He died, rose again and ascended to the right hand of God the Father, as High Priest of a new priesthood, that of Melchizedek. The old Levitical priesthood ceased forever.
Christ, the Mediator of the new covenant, intercedes between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus, Who is there with the glory He had with the Father before the world began.
The new covenant, unlike the old that was not faultless, will never fail.
He did not enter a temple made with hands but into heaven itself. The old temple order ceased for all time in A.D.70 when that unholy city of Jerusalem and its earthly, worldly temple were destroyed by the Romans.
His priesthood, being new, is there in heaven on behalf of a heavenly people who have already come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, to tens of thousands of angels and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood.
This new and only Israel of God, does not require physical circumcision. Rather the mark of its people is circumcision of the heart. These are the only true Jews.
Those citizens in Palestine, called Israel today, are neither spiritual nor natural Jews. They have deceived not only the churches of the West but the whole world.
‘Come out of her, My people’ as called John the Revelator to the believers in that Jerusalem where our Lord was crucified, still applies today.
Any believer who is in the Jewish belief system, should come out and follow the truth of the true Gospel, instead of ‘another gospel’ as taught in the majority of pulpits.
To even consider the possibility of any people going back to an earthly priesthood (that ceased), to an earthly temple rebuilt, to descend with Christ to Jerusalem for a thousand year reign there, with Him sacrificing animals is heresy, blasphemy and ‘treading underfoot the blood of Christ’.
Shame, shame, shame!
Leave such evil and demonic teachings behind. Repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ who came and began to teach His ‘Kingdom at hand’. He came at the right time, being exactly as prophesied by Daniel, 9:24.
That kingdom will endure forever. We will also, if we are in it.
Brother Nathanael, what you wrote is so very precious. Thank you. I am sure it will bless many.
Hagee has a nice, but not extravagant, house in San Antonio.
However, he owns or controls numerous other properties too. One of these is an 8,000 acre ranch near Bracketville, Texas; as well as an expensive private jet.
Something tells me he does have an extravagant mansion somewhere - but it’s in the name of a private trust.
“Since Hagee and his wife, Diana Hagee, founded GETV 25 years ago, the organization has gone from a back-room operation broadcasting Sunday sermons to San Antonio area viewers to a 50,000-square-foot multimedia studio broadcasting to 127 television stations and 82 radio stations nationwide.
“According to the 990 forms for GETV, the organization in 2001 netted $12.3 million from donations, $4.8 million in profit from the sales of books and tapes, and an additional $1.1 million from various other sources, including rental income.
“As the nonprofit organization’s president, Hagee drew $540,000 in compensation, as well as an additional $302,005 in compensation for his position as president of Cornerstone Church, according to GETV’s tax statements.
“He also received $411,561 in benefits from GETV, including contributions to a retirement package for highly paid executives the IRS calls a “rabbi trust,” so named because the first beneficiary of such an irrevocable trust was a rabbi.
“The John Hagee Rabbi Trust includes a $2.1 million 7,969-acre ranch outside Brackettville, with five lodges, including a “main lodge” and a gun locker. It also includes a manager’s house, a smokehouse, a skeet range and three barns.
“Taken together, his payment package, $842,005 in compensation and $414,485 in benefits, was one of the highest, if not the highest, pay package for a nonprofit director in the San Antonio area in 2001.
”Hagee’s compensation was among the highest pay packages for television evangelists in 2001, according to IRS 990 filings”
In Addition Hagee’s wife “Diana Hagee received compensation of $67,907 as vice president of GETV and $58,813 as the special events director.”
There are a lot of people who simply don’t understand the Scriptures and the Biblical prophecies.
That is why they’re are dozens of Christian sects and denominations. None of them are completely wrong and none are completely right. It’s like the blind men examining an elephant and one feels it’s trunk and calls it a snake and one feels the ears and thinks it’s giant pizzas etc.
The Jews are not God’s people. They are the devil’s people and belong to a satanic cult known as Judaism that calls Mary a whore and Jesus a fraud and this satanic cult is constantly blaming Christians and Muslims for what it does in prodigious amounts.
But the one piece of gospel that Christians constantly stumble over is “Where is heaven?”
Heaven is right here on Earth and not way out in outer space somewhere. The Earth becomes the New Jerusalem according to Biblical prophecy. Read the Book of Revelation.
I have NO earthly possessions except for a computer but only to broadcast over the Internet my Videos and Articles.
I don’t own a car, a stereo, or a TV, and I rent a tiny studio apartment. (You’ve seen how tiny it is.)

I’m totally broke and have to continually borrow money to pay rent, to eat, and to stay online. (And rather than donations increasing as do the Views and Hits of my Videos and Articles, donations keep on decreasing. How very discouraging and worrisome this is!)

I got home from NYC yesterday with a very bad cold. I wanted nothing more than to take some Vitamin C and some aspirin and lie down.
INSTEAD, I got a Video ready (I spent most of the airplane ride home preparing it while dealing with a running nose) and then spent the next 12 hours preparing, filming, editing, and then posting the Video. (Just for the “posting” part there is MUCH to do. Whew.)
Why did I do all of this instead of taking care of my miserable cold?
BECAUSE, getting THE TRUTH out is MORE IMPORTANT than my health. I do EVERYTHING for Jesus Christ’s sake and NOT for my own.

Brother Nathanael, our Lord knows your needs. Don’t give up, He will be right on time! He cannot disappoint!
He Cannot Disappoint
If we look, with spiritual eyes, upon any situation in our lives, we can never be disappointed in God. His ways are infinitely above ours, and we must trust and hope in Him to work all things for our good. Eternity governs all of His dealings with His people. His eyes are on eternal redemption.
We must willingly and decidedly align our eyes with His, and realize that this life is but a breath. As we submit to His will, and His dealings with us, we begin to see more clearly His mind…and His wonderful, holy purpose for His children.
Any given situation we find ourselves involved in may look hopeless through our natural eyes, and all evidence may affirm such a verdict, yet if we choose by faith to see through His eyes, we can believe that His processes will work His good will in us regardless of all the outward appearances or evidences.
Eternity is at stake. If we will to trust, as a little child, that Father knows best, and has only good in mind for us, we can never be disappointed. It becomes more and more improbable for it to be otherwise if we are taking Him at His word!
We are called to a very high place that is not unattainable, as the natural man would have us to believe. We are called to always walk in the state of grace that reflects we are forgiven, cleansed from our sin, redeemed by the Lamb’s Blood, and free in Him to gladly welcome His wise work upon us…no matter the pain it causes to our natural man.
We are to ever reckon our natural man dead, and to walk by faith. By so doing, we are continually strengthened by the Holy Spirit to endure whatever our precious Lord chooses for us to “pass through.”
And it is to “pass through” that we are called! Through this world of misery and woe, on into His world of freedom for the sons and daughters of God. We needn’t fear any evil along the way. Jesus has overcome the evil one…and so shall we!
What is faith? Believing, though we can not see. Jesus overcame and so shall we! As we learn to appropriate (by faith) the victory that is ours through His finished work at Calvary, we become more and more restful in His ability to sustain us. He does not disappoint!
If we are walking in His light…the whole of our spiritual life will be spent with serious allegations against us. Such it was with Christ. Such it was with the multitude of chosen ones who have preceded us.
Why would it be any different for us? It cannot be different until the Father of Lies is banished. How do we fight these allegations? We are to stand firmly…grounded in the Father’s Word. His Word is Truth! And Truth shall prevail! He cannot disappoint!
Pain and suffering are part and parcel of our lives in Christ here on earth. It is simply the Father’s way of bringing us home. We mustn’t dwell upon trying to understand this mystery.
Rather, let us dwell upon attaining to the place of obedience, wherein we are continually walking in His presence. It is therein that we are not touched…therein we are not moved…and therein we are unshakeable!
We go through the fires and come out untouched! We are thrown into the den of lions and we emerge unscathed! What is the purpose for the pain and suffering? Simply put: It is the will of the Father. Eternity will answer that question more fully when we gaze upon His Son in all His glory! If we will submit to His way…we will not be disappointed!
“In quietness and confidence shall be our strength.” Patiently and confidently we wait before the One Who knows all our ways. “Be still, oh, my soul, and know that He is God.” He cannot disappoint!
Oh, Lord, You shall never disappoint.
It is Your will…Your children to anoint
With the power of Your life. Overcoming power…
Every minute of the day…every single hour.
Zechariah 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
We would all do well to remember God wants us to love even our enemies. To overcome evil with good. Those of us in the body of Christ should concentrate on developing the fruit of the Spirit, Gal. 5:22-23.
Take for a example Stephen when he was stoned by the Jews, with his last breath he implored the Lord to not lay that sin to their charge. Would we all be that forgiving.
President Vladimir Putin, leader of the Russian Federation. Insiders say he is the Ultimate Statesman and the new SuperHero of the Russian People.
Reputed to have nerves of steel, incredible courage and not prone to overreact or respond to political provocations. Many Insiders have said this is no man to trifle with or test. Most Americans long for an Elected Leader of this stature and prominence.
“But the one piece of gospel that Christians constantly stumble over is “Where is heaven?”
“Heaven is right here on Earth and not way out in outer space somewhere. The Earth becomes the New Jerusalem according to Biblical prophecy. Read the Book of Revelation.”
You are correct in saying “Heaven is right here on Earth…” But you are incorrect in saying “The [entire] Earth becomes the New Jerusalem…”
The Book of Revelation states that New Jerusalem has dimensional limitations and therefore in my opinion does not comprise the entire Earth:
Revelation 21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
This all translates to a three-dimensional cube that is approximately 1,400 miles X 1,400 miles X 1,400 miles. It is the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Heaven. It is also referred to as the holy city and the tabernacle of God in Rev 21:2,3. It is spiritual and not of this world. One cannot see it with ones eyes… the gold is so pure it is transparent.
If centered over “Old” Jerusalem its boundaries match those exactly of what was promised to Abraham and his Seed (which is Christ), a man of faith. From the Nile river in Egypt to the Euphrates river and from the land of the Hittites (Turkey)to the north…
Those who overcome this world (that is presently and practically owned and controlled by the “Jews”(I use the term loosely) by believing in and having faith in Jesus inherit New Jerusalem.
Those who do not overcome this world (by believing in and having faith in Jesus do not inherit New Jerusalem but are destined to the lake of fire.[ref. Rev 21:7,8]
You are a lot closer to reality than any Judeo/Zionist “Christian” preacher I’ve heard from the pulpits of the Judaized churches in America and elsewhere in this world owned by the “Jews”.
Concerning Apocalypse 21:15-21, the Orthodox Church teaches that the “cube” of the New Jerusalem is to be understood symbolically not literally, and in the context of the chapter and book concerning the Universal Judgment.
As in Ezekiel’s vision, the angel measures the city (Ezek 40-42). It is a colossal cube, recalling the shape of the Most Holy Place of the Jerusalem temple where God dwelt (1 King 6:19, 20; Ezek 41:4).
The dimensions of the city are symbolic of its perfection: the multiples of 12 symbolize the people of God; 1,000 shows its greatness. The precious stones (v 19) portray its glory. As the priests in the the Jerusalem temple walked on pavements of gold (1 King 6:30), so the new, royal priesthood will walk on a street of pure gold (v.21).
21:22 There is no material temple in the New Jerusalem (John 4:21). Since God is uncreated, infinite and eternal, the cube of the New Jerusalem must be understood symbolically as a spiritual reality — the Kingdom of God has no “limitations.”
It’s temple is the very presence of God in all of its inhabitants (1 Cor 15:28; 1 Pet 2:4-10) both in heaven and on earth. Christians are to be “in the world, but not of the world.” The Ekklesia (Church), the Israel of God, itself is the Temple of the Kingdom of God.
As to 21:23-27, the OT prophecies concerning the glorification of Jerusalem are fulfilled in the eternal Kingdom (see Is. 60). Created light is unnecessary, for the everlasting Uncreated Light (Is 60:19, 20) will illumine all (Psalm 36:9) with true and clear vision to see things as they really are.
The True Light, the Light of the World (John 8:12), was incarnate (John 1:9), and even while on earth He shone with Uncreated Light (Mark 9:2-8; 2 Pet. 1:16-18). As prophesied, all the earth will stream to honor it (Is. 55:5; Jer. 16:19-21; Tobit 13:11) — it has no enemies — but only the pure will live within it (Matt. 5:8).
The late Fr. Seraphim Rose wrote in a footnote concerning Christian Eschatology and the Universal Judgment in Chapters 21 and 22 of Revelation:
“By ’symbolical’ our contemporary, rationalistic language usually understands “not real, no more than an image” — a definition which would give a very misleading idea of the life of the future age.
“With regard to the images in which future blessedness and future torment are described, one might repeate the words of the angel to St. Macarious of Alexandria…”Accept earthly things here as the weaker kind of depiction of heavenly things”…. — Pomazansky, Fr. Michael; Orthodox Dogmatic Theology trans. Hieromonk Seraphim Rose, pp 347-348.
In our time, heaps of teachers (II Timothy 4:3) continue to assert that because the Jewish people are re-gathered into their ancient homeland, “the time draweth near” (Luke 21:8).
Such continually echo the Pharisees’ claim that the Jews are the seed of Abraham – the chosen people – and our fate as believers is dependent on how we treat them.
This was a lie when the Pharisees made the claim, and it’s the same lie being propagated in our time:
“They answered and said unto Him, ‘[we are chosen because] Abraham is our father…we have one Father, even God.’ Jesus saith unto them, ‘if God were your Father, ye would love Me…Ye are of your father the devil….’” (John 8:39, 41, 42, 44).
Whenever +BN posts a video that is a bit harder hitting such as this one, have you noticed the number of trolls increases substantially?
Go to the YT comment section for this and look. I realize there are paid trolls out there. There is one particular person calling himself “dontbeeignorant” (?) and he routinely trolls +BN’s videos and attacks followers of the Orthodox Church and Roman Church and calls us all “heathens.”
I have complained about this guy to YT to try to get him banned and there is nothing they can do. I once had a week long argument with this annoying troll and in the end deleted all my posts and put a stop to it.
We need to do something about this. I’ve even wrote +BN and suggested he disable comments on his YT channel. What do you guys think of this? I’ve noticed that the trolls don’t come on this board, or perhaps are filtered more.
I’ve also noticed how videos about the True Israel bring out large numbers of Catholic and Protestant trolls all claiming they are the true church and trying to discredit Orthodoxy.
One guy said Jesus didn’t mention Orthodoxy…does he even know the meaning of the word? Does he mean to say Jesus does not want us to have correct or upright belief?
Who is the ‘heathen’ now? When you look up the definition of heathen it mentions about Germanic paganism, the occult, etc. Does any of this sound like Orthodoxy? What is the aim of these guys? Why so hard to accept history?
Catholics always claim Peter was the first pope and claim they can ‘prove’ it…what are they basing these claims on? The ‘rock’ was Peter’s confession about who Jesus really was, not Peter himself.
How does this give him authority over the other 11? We are known as the Orthodox Catholic Church. Orthodox means correct belief and catholic means universal, so right-believing universal Church.
The Romans took out the word Orthodox and replaced it with Roman and left in the word catholic to become the Roman Catholic church and claim they were first…by that same argument where in Scriptures does Jesus talk about catholicism or the papacy?
To top it off they changed the Creed and brought in many heretical teachings that strayed from the True Faith. Even some old school Catholics didn’t accept the papal infallibility when it became a dogma of the Catholic church not until the late 1800’s!
Anyway this is my rant and +BN if you are reading this, how do we respond to these continued attacks from heterodox while not becoming worse than they are, with patience and love instead of malice and hate? This is what I struggle with and many others. God Bless you all !
I did not know much about Dispensationalism until I watched a youtube video (about 4 hrs long) called “The True Israel of God”.
Did not realize how weird it really is.
From their own writings they believe the Jews and not the Church are Gods Chosen. That God’s covenant with the Jews has not been done away. That the Jews are the ones who will inherit the Kingdom, after the Church is raptured.
That God’s covenant as the Law will be re-established on earth as the Jews’ Kingdom. And that Jews don’t need Christ’s Covenant as they alreadly have an eternal Covenant with God.
And many other weird nonsense.
Watching the Video made me think that it had to be Jews (or their agents) who were behind such a theological system. Sounds very much like what the Apostle Paul warned against.
At BN: What do you think about this Jew? The real deal like you, dear BN.
Jews for this, Jews for that, doesn’t it just make you sick. But wait, this one’s different. You’ve all heard of Jews for Justice for Palestinians (JFJFP) well, here’s Jews for Justice for Germans (JFJFG).
We call on representatives of Jewish communities worldwide to begin discussions about the role of Jews in the suffering inflicted on Germans since 1945 and, if appropriate, to make arrangements for apology, reparation and compensation.
Some units had taken part in the Normandy landings and helped liberate concentration camps so had great sympathy for Jews.
Unfortunately, because of the hated immigration controls and effective Zionist propaganda, they soon learnt to get used to, and not retaliate, when abused, spat upon and called Nazis by Jews in Palestine.
(Ironically, in the thirties incoming German Jews had also been abused as Nazis.)
So true, dear Brother Nathanael. The true Israel is the Kingdom of Christ, which is a Kingdom beyond this wicked world of Jews.
There is a wonderful old Swedish psalm “Prepare The Way, O Zion” where the seventh and last verse goes like this :
“Jerusalem is fallen,
And closed its temple door;
Its sacrifices ended;
Its scepter is no more.
Christ’s kingdom never ceaseth,
Its glory still increaseth.
O blest is He that came
In God the Father’s Name.”
There may be evidence that it was God who kicked the Jews out of Israel in the 70 AD Jewish Diaspora, and it was not actually the Romans, because there were “exactly” six Sabbath years of time “between” (1) the beginning of the July 64 AD Christian Holocaust that was caused by the lies of the Roman Emperor Nero and (2) the beginning of the 70 AD Jewish Diaspora out of Israel.
In other words the 70 AD Jewish Diaspora began on God’s perfect miracle timing on the beginning of a seventh Sabbath year, as counting from the beginning of the July 64 AD Christian Holocaust.
This ordering of the events of what happened seems to possibly represent a communication from God, and an explanation that is given to the whole world from God as to why the 70 AD Jewish Diaspora actually happened.
All of the first original leaders of Christianity desired to live in and to have their Christian Headquarters located in Israel, but all the Christians then ( that is Jews and Gentiles who followed Jesus Christ ) stayed very far away from Israel because of their fear of a Christian Holocaust sponsored by the Jewish Leaders.
And all of the first original leaders of Christianity were all horribly murdered in 64 AD.
The 70 AD Jewish Diaspora out of Israel brought from God a forced Sabbath seventh year rest of the hostilities from the Jewish leaders toward the Christians then ( as Saint Paul was a former Jewish leader persecutor of the Christians, and that is prior to Saint Paul’s conversion ).
In the 70 AD Jewish Diaspora the Jewish leaders then became too busy with their own efforts of trying to stay alive, to continue to persecute the Christians.
The Jewish Talmud mentions that Emperor Nero was a student of Judaism.
Fake occupiers of Israel, six million of them fulfill prophesy of Ezekiel 38-39.
These Khazarian “Snake People” are the true Gog Magog coiled like a snake through the land of Israel, ready to strike; and armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons, stolen laser weaponry, biological and chemical weaponry and iron dome.
Stupid Zio Christian preachers who should be preaching salvation through Christ alone, instead of siding with Satanic Fakes. These copy cat Dumb asses then further state that modern Putin’s Russia are Gog, when Russians are truly more Christian than is the United Socialist States of Jewmerica.
They discern not the truth nor do they rightly divide the word of truth. Pray and fast for Russia, Putin, Assad of Syria. With the Jewish invasion of Ukraine…(Thank you to poster of voltairenet.com)
Wow, so obvious the 2 airliners were punishment to Malaysia and the bloody fingerprints on the downing of the second plane.
