How Christians Lacking Spiritual Knowledge Hate God
Then the disciples came to Him and asked, “Why do you speak to the crowds in parables?” Jesus
replied to them, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but
to them it has not been granted. For whoever has [spiritual wisdom because he is receptive to
God’s word], to him more will be given, and he will be richly and abundantly supplied; but
whoever does not have [spiritual wisdom because he has devalued God’s word], even what he
has will be taken away from him. This is the reason I speak to the crowds in parables: because
while [having the power of] seeing they do not see, and while [having the power of] hearing they
do not hear, nor do they understand and grasp [spiritual things]. In them the prophecy of Isaiah is
being fulfilled, which says,
‘YOU WILL HEAR and KEEP ON HEARING, BUT NEVER UNDERSTAND;
AND YOU WILL LOOK and KEEP ON LOOKING, BUT NEVER COMPREHEND;
FOR THIS NATIONS HEART HAS GROWN HARD,
AND WITH THEIR EARS THEY HARDLY HEAR,
AND THEY HAVE [tightly] CLOSED THEIR EYES,
OTHERWISE THEY WOULD SEE WITH THEIR EYES,
AND HEAR WITH THEIR EARS,
AND UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART, AND TURN [to Me]
AND I WOULD HEAL THEM [spiritually].’ Matthew 13:10-15 (AMP)
Following are words this world of Christianity, through actions, really has no understanding of;
“If the world hates you [and it does], know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you
belonged to the world, the world would love [you as] its own and would treat you with affection.
But you are not of the world [you no longer belong to it], but I have chosen you out of the world.
And because of this the world hates you. Remember [and continue to remember] that I told you,
‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If
they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But they will do all these [hurtful] things to you
for My name’s sake [because you bear My name and are identified with Me], for they do not
know the One who sent Me. John 15:18-21

Meaning of how Christian’s Hate Yeshua Messiah and Yehovah God the
Father
This series of scriptures will highlight the world's danger to us. The apostle James writes:
"Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with
God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God"
Do not all worldly Christians look only to themselves through material wants and desires while
doing no deed for others, which our Father sees?
(James 4:4). This epistle is written to a Christian congregation. Even as the Old Testament shows
Israel to be a spiritual adulteress to God through the people's disobedience following the making
of the Old Covenant, so are Christians—as part of the bride of Christ, having made the New
Covenant—spiritual adulterers when they unfaithfully disobey.
James is not saying these people are lost. He is warning them that they are heading in that
direction because they were backsliding, having already been unfaithful. The unstated, yet clear
cause of their being drawn back is the world, as if it were the seductive temptress of Proverbs 7.
James' counsel is that we cannot straddle the fence between YHVH and the world. He is
expounding the "no man can serve two masters" principle. These two relationships—YHVH God
and the world—frame a black-and-white issue; this war has no neutral zone. A person cannot
pursue his self-centered, selfish worldly ambitions and still remain loyal to Yehovah.
The apostle uses the word philos, indicating something dear, which the New King James Version
translates as "friend." He is stressing an affectionate, emotional attachment. Interestingly, The
New Testament in Modern English by J.B. Phillips (1959) renders the warning as, "You are like
unfaithful wives, flirting with the glamour of this world, and never realizing that to be the
world's lover means becoming the enemy of God!" Seen this way, James describes them as silly,
immature children, thoughtlessly gambling away their futures in the Kingdom of God.
I John 2:15 adds a refinement to James' warning: "Do not love the world or the things in the
world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him." The Greek word translated
as "love" is agapao, which suggests a reasoned, determined love. Thus, John's counsel stresses
willfulness rather than mere affectionate attachment. In comparison, one could even describe
philos as an unbidden "puppy love," but agapao—never.
John is saying that we should not have intimate fellowship combined with loyal devotion to the
world. Our relationship to it must be a more distant, hands-off one. We certainly must live and
do business within it, but we have to fight to keep it from becoming the focus of our way of life.
The spiritual reality is that, as we might say today, "The world stands ready to eat us alive." It
chews Christians up and spits them out. If permitted, it can trash spiritual realities that may once
have been cherished hopes and dreams.
Galatians 6:14 provides another guiding principle to hold dear: "But God forbid that I should
boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me,
and I to the world." This is an example of Paul's spiritual outlook and maturity regarding his
relationship with the world. As far as any relationship between him and the world is concerned,
the world is dead and crucified, and so is he to it. It is vivid imagery. How much willful devotion
can a person have in a relationship going nowhere because both parties are "dead" to each other
with what follows adding more factual truth Christians seem to ignore.
Faith and Works
What is the benefit, my fellow believers, if someone claims to have faith but has no [good]
works [as evidence]? Can that [kind of] faith save him? [No, a mere claim of faith is not
sufficient—genuine faith produces good works.] If a brother or sister is without [adequate]
clothing and lacks [enough] food for each day, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace [with
my blessing], [keep] warm and feed yourselves,” but he does not give them the necessities for
the body, what good does that do? So too, faith, if it does not have works [to back it up], is by
itself dead [inoperative and ineffective].
But someone may say, “You [claim to] have faith and I have [good] works; show me your
[alleged] faith without the works [if you can], and I will show you my faith by my works [that is,
by what I do].” You believe that God is one; you do well [to believe that]. The demons also
believe [that], and shudder and bristle [in awe-filled terrorthey have seen His wrath]! But are
you willing to recognize, you foolish [spiritually shallow] person, that faith without [good]
works is useless? Was our father Abraham not [shown to be] justified by works [of obedience
which expressed his faith] when he offered Isaac his son on the altar [as a sacrifice to God]? You
see that [his] faith was working together with his works, and as a result of the works, his faith
was completed [reaching its maturity when he expressed his faith through obedience]. And the
Scripture was fulfilled which says, “ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND THIS [faith] WAS CREDITED
TO HIM
[by God] AS RIGHTEOUSNESS and AS CONFORMITY TO HIS WILL,” and he was called the
friend of God. You see that a man (believer) is justified by works and not by faith alone [that is,
by acts of obedience a born-again believer reveals his faith]. In the same way, was Rahab the
prostitute not justified by works too, when she received the [Hebrew] spies as guests and
protected them, and sent them away [to escape] by a different route? For just as the [human]
body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works [of obedience] is also dead. James 2:14-26
This is the fruit of the carnal mind's persistently disobedient attitude shown below in Romans
8:6-9 (AMP)
“Now the mind of the flesh is death [both now and forever—because it pursues sin]; but the
mind of the Spirit is life and peace [the spiritual well-being that comes from walking with God—
both now and forever]; the mind of the flesh [with its sinful pursuits] is actively hostile to God. It
does not submit itself to God’s law, since it cannot, and those who are in the flesh [living a life
that caters to sinful appetites and impulses] cannot please God.
However, you are not [living] in the flesh [controlled by the sinful nature] but in the Spirit, if in
fact the Spirit of God lives in you [directing and guiding you]. But if anyone does not have the
Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him [and is not a child of God].
. The whole worldly system is anti-God. Even though the Christian world patronizes Him, in
reality, it hates Jesus Christ, and therefore it hates those who truly follow Him just as I have been
experiencing through these past nine years. There is a simple reason why this continual reality
exists.
Paul had renounced the whole worldly system. It no longer had any appeal to him; he was, in
effect, dead in relation to it. [Disassociated] However, the world's pressure never ends, which
Paul notes in Romans 12:2, "Do not be conformed to this world." The Greek more correctly
reads, "Stop allowing yourself to be fashioned to the pattern of this age," or as the J.B. Phillips
translation puts it, "Don't let the world around you squeeze you into its own mold."
This is the danger we face when we allow the world to become too important. To be forewarned
is to be forearmed. The world subtly but inexorably manipulates us into conformity with its
thinking, its value systems, and therefore its attitudes and conduct. If we are alert and truly
guarding against an invasion of worldly attitudes and practices, we will soon be able to notice
when others relapse into following the course of the world; and who might that be?
“Behold, God puts no trust in His holy ones (angels);
Indeed, the heavens are not pure in His sight
How much less [pure and clean is] the one who is repulsive and corrupt,
Man, who drinks unrighteousness and injustice [worldly ways] like water! Job 15:15-16
“The LORD has looked down from heaven upon the children of men
To see if there are any who understand (act wisely),
Who [truly] seek after God, [longing for His wisdom and guidance].
They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt;
There is no one who does good, not even one. Psalms 14:2-3
The persistent influence of the world is a reality because Satan, the god of this world, is its
driving force (II Corinthians 4:4). The world is Satan's medium, through which he broadcasts his
propaganda and disinformation. By confusing people about what to believe, he intends to
manipulate humanity. Satan's pitch to mankind is aimed directly at exciting human nature's self-
indulgent cravings, and he is very good at all he does through being the father of lies all worldly
people believe, love, follow and worship in their own unknown ways.

Due to this Satanic effort, even though we are converted, we are apt to become misinformed,
lackadaisical, disinterested, and discouraged. We must be aware of it and absolutely resist it. The
apostles' advice about avoiding intimacy with the world is a form of the proverb, "Evil company
corrupts good habits" (I Corinthians 15:33). Friendship with the world corrupts, and sadly my
brothers and sisters worldwide, has not selfish ways made all friends with this world?

Unknown Fact Concerning Who Israel Is - Could you be an Israelite, and not
know it?
"Here's a paradox, a paradox, a most ingenious paradox: and anthropological [study of humans
and their societies in the past and present]
fact, many Christians may have much more Hebrew-
Israelite blood in their veins than most of their Jewish neighbors."
Could their possibly be any truth to this? If so, it would mean that the majority of Christendom
and the rest of society have misidentified, through spiritual deception, the people most prominent
in the Bible.
https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/Xjp9eY/israels-idenity-for-truth-seekers
If Israel has been misidentified there is no doubt that major errors in doctrinal interpretation and
application of Biblical prophecy have been made all through Christianity and this entire world
regardless of belief. There are a variety of stories regarding the Israelites and their modern-day
identity. It is not the purpose of this these words to relate another of these stories. Instead, it will
furnish you with the 'rest of the story,' the true story regarding Israel's modern identity, the one
found in the Scriptures and verified by archeology and history -- a story not usually told by most
preachers.
SPIRITUAL ISRAEL
A large segment of Christianity is being taught that YHVH God no longer has a plan for
'physical Israel' under the New Covenant, and that He is now working with only a 'spiritual
Israel.' For example, in the January/February 1991 issue of 'The Last Trump,' Dr. Ed Moore
claimed:"Hence, we can begin to see that being the children of Abraham (today under the New
Covenant) has nothing to do with race." (2)
In his book 'Clouds over America,' Leonard C. Lee concluded:"Since God rejected the Israelites
as a nation, we can look for the fulfillment of His purposes only in [a] spiritual Israel. . . The
[physical] Israelites have now passed off the stage of action. . ." (3)
In essence, these men and others like them, are proclaiming that God has no NEW COVENANT
(emphasis added, original in italics) plan for physical Israel. Yet, contrast these statements with
what the inspired writer of Hebrews wrote:
"Behold days are coming, says the LORD when I will effect a *New Covenant* WITH the
*House of Israel* and with the *House of Judah*. . ." (Hebrews 8:8).
While some people attempt to spiritualize this passage of Scripture to fit their preconceived ideas
or to harmonize it with their denomination's teachings, the Israelites cannot be spiritualized in
this verse, and for three reasons. FIRST, the context will not allow it. The very next verse
dictates as to whether the Israelites spoken of in verse eight are to be :"Not like the [Mosaic]
covenant which I made with THEIR [The House of Israel's and the House of Judah's] *fathers on
the day when I took them by the hand to lead them as being either physical or spiritual of the
land of Egypt*. . ." (Hebrews 8:9)
The people described in this passage, with whom the New Covenant was and is being made, are
clearly the physical descendants of the PHYSICAL PEOPLE (emp. add.) whom Moses led out of
Egypt. The SECOND reason Israel cannot be spiritualized is illustrated by the Old Testament
passage from which Hebrews 8:8-12 is quoted. The author of Hebrews quoted the Prophet
Jeremiah, and Jeremiah continued with the following:
"Thus says YHWH (the LORD), who gives the sun for light by day, and the fixed order of the
moon and the stars for light by day. . . *If this fixed order departs from before Me...then the
offspring of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before Me forever*. Thus says YHWH,
*If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out below,
then I will also cast off the offspring of Israel. . ." (Jeremiah 31:35-37)
Since the fixed order of the sun, moon and stars has not departed, and since the heavens have not
been measured, and the depths of the earth searched out below, then it is quite apparent that God
is still working with the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. If not, then God has
lied.
The THIRD reason the Israelites in Hebrews 8:8 cannot be spiritualized is because of the second
witness found in Romans where the Apostle Paul declared:"For I could wish that I myself were
accursed, separated from [the] Christ for the sake of my brethren, *my kinsmen according to the
flesh, who are Israelites, to whom belong. . . the covenants*. . ." (Romans9:3,4)
Not only do the previous three passages specifically declare that God made His New Covenant
with *Israelites*, but there are many more New Testament passages which reveal that God
continues to work with the *physical* nation of Israel to this day. (Matt. 1:21; 2:6; 10:6; 15:24;
Luke 1:16,33,54-55,68,72-73,77; 19:9,10; 22:30; Acts 1:6; 5:31; 13:23,24; Romans 4:1; 11:1,2;
James 1:1; Rev. 7:3-8; 21:10-12, etc.)
There can be no question that God, under the New Covenant, has a plan for physical Israel ( at
least with the remnant who have, and are being redeemed by the atoning sacrifice of Yeshua
[Yeshua, the Hebrew pronunciation of our Savior's name, is the preferred expression used in this
tract, as it is believed to be the more accurate rendition.] the Christ).
This being the case, it behooves Christianity to correctly identify the true descendants of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
TODAY'S JEWS
Nearly all of Christendom is being taught that today's "Jews" represent Israel. Yet, how many of
those same people have ever been taught that the Bible warns us of Israelite impostors? That's
right, *non-Israelites* who fallaciously claim to be *Israelites*:
"I know. . . The blasphemy by those who say they are Jews [i.e., Judahites, thus Israelites] and
are not, but are a synagogue of Satan." (Revelation 2:9)
Also, how many Christians have been told that there is actually a people who admit to being
these impostors? For example, 'The 1980 Jewish Almanac's' first chapter entitled "Identity
Crisis," begins with the following admission:
"Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a 'Jew' or to call a contemporary Jew
an 'Israelite' or a 'Hebrew.'" (4)This fact is confirmed by several other Jewish sources and
individual Jews. For example: The Jewish Encyclopedia (1905); The Standard Jewish
Encyclopedia (1966); Nathan M. Pollock, Professor of Medieval Jewish History of Tel Aviv;
Bernard Lazare; Robert Quillan; Dr. Benjamin Freedman; Arthur Koestler; James Yaffe; Paul
Meyer and many more. Dr. Oscar Levy went so far as to declare:
"And are not they [today's Jews] the inventors of the Chosen People myth?" (5)
Why hasn't Christendom and the American public been told that over 90 percent of the people
known as "Jews" are *not* descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? History reveals they are
actually descendants of the fierce Turkish, Mongolian Khazar tribes which roamed the steppes of
southern Russia and who adopted the religion of Judaism between the 7th and 9th Centuries.
Today, the Khazars are known as "Jews" not because of race, but because of religion. (6)
As stated, the Bible declares that there would be Israelite impostors,
these impostors have inadvertently or deliberately identified themselves by their own writings.
Therefore, if "they" are not true Israel, someone else must be!
TRUE ISRAEL
God provided Scriptural clues for Identifying Israel of old. There is no debate that ancient Israel
fulfilled most of these marks and was identified by them. But even more exciting is the fact that
these very same features help us to identify Israel today! Listed below are fifteen national,
geographical and spiritual aspects out of hundreds of Scriptural clues that positively identify
Israel. Ask yourself, what modern-day people do they identify?
5 NATIONAL ASPECTS
- Israel was to become a great and mighty nation.(Genesis 12:1-3)
- Israel was to become a vast multitude of people.(Genesis 22:17)
- Israel was to form a multitude of nations.(Genesis 17:4-6)
- Israel was to rule over other nations.(Deuteronomy 15;6)
- Israel was to be a blessing to all nations.(Genesis 22:18)
5 GEOGRAPHICAL ASPECTS
- Israel was to have a new home, other than Canaan Land.(2 Samuel 7:10)
- Israel's new land was to be inhabited by people gathered from many nations. (Ezekiel 38:8)
- Israel was to have a land of unwalled villages, without walls, bars or gates. (Ezekiel 38:11)
- Israel was to have a land of great agricultural wealth.(Deuteronomy 28:8-11)
- Israel's land was described as being the "camp of the saints." (Revelations 20:7-9)
5 SPIRITUAL ASPECTS
- Israel was to have a new religion and be saved by YHWH (the LORD).(Jeremiah 31:7,31-37).
- Israel was to carry the gospel to all the world. (Isaiah 49:3-6)
- Israel was to be the only nation given God's Law. (Psalm 147:19-20)
- Israel was to be blind for the most part to her identity. (Isaiah 42:16-19)
- Israel was to be called by a new name. (Isaiah 62:1,2)
If Israel exists today, as she must, there is only one people whom all these identifying marks fit --
and they certainly do not represent the modern-day "Jews." They do however, describe perfectly
the Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, Scandinavian, and kindred peoples; the multitude of nations
who became a great nation, with a new home, a new religion, and who have blessed the world
with the gospel of Yeshua and numerous other blessings.
Indeed, Alfred Lilienthal (a "Jew") understood what most Celto-Saxons do not: Many Christians
have much more Hebrew-Israelite blood in their veins than do their modern self-styled "Jewish"
neighbors.
The Prophet Isaiah spoke of a time in his future when "the eyes of those who see will not be
blinded, and the ears of those who hear will listen, and the mind of the hasty will discern truth."
(Isaiah 32:3,4) It is the purpose of this short tract to assist in the continual fulfillment of Isaiah's
prophecy in regard to the true identity of Israel. We have very briefly demonstrated and provided
evidence for the following three facts:
- God *has* a New Covenant plan for physical Israel today.
- Today's "Jews" *are not* Israelites, but instead impostors.
- The Celto-Saxon peoples *are* Israelites, the true descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
***
You now have the rest of the story, the true story concerning Israel's modern-day identity; it is up
to you what you do with it. It is our prayer that Isaiah's prophecy will be fulfilled in you, and that
you will do your part in awakening other Israelites to their identity, and to their responsibility to
God as His people.
However, this world of Christians walking in disobedience, having iniquity, and no love for
others through deed have become separated from Elohim just as scripture says – that over two
billion Christians have never been taught -- or just don’t believe Yehovah is speaking of them
being Israel.
There is no end to studies which reveal truth – only if we look only to our Father to direct our
daily paths in this life as written in Proverbs 3:5-6, because if we don’t, “There is a way which
seemeth right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 16:18
