In the last article, we learned about the events that led to the captivity of Israel before the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Later on, they went to another captivity following their rejection of Jesus Christ. That captivity has not ended till now.
37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.38 Look, your house is left to you desolate. 39 For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’[c]” Matt 23:37-39
The Desolation of the Jewish people happened in A.D 70 by the Romans. Click here to read the supernatural events that happened before the desolation. One important aspect of the desolation was the fulfilment of a prophecy by Jesus is the complete destruction of the Temple in such a way that not one stone will be left upon the other.
Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; everyone will be thrown down.” Matt 24:1-2
If there is ONE prophecy in the New Testament that every Rabbinic Jew hates to this day, it has to be this prophecy( Matt 23 37 – Matt:24:2). It comprehensively proved that God has rejected them and Jesus indeed was the Messiah who was sent to them.
Jewish History Just After the Messiah
The Cunning Pharisees had the same dragon working within them which we see in TPM Pastors. Even though their falsity was exposed, they would not leave their crooked ways. The brainwashed Jews played into their hands very much like the TPM Believers do now.
With the Ark of Covenant gone, the Temple and the City Destroyed, their religion was killed for all practical purposes. The Levites who were supposed to do the temple services were killed and exiled. Knowing this predicament which befell them, they thought of a new innovative way to rebuild their religion. This new Religion is called “Rabbinic Judaism“. Rabbinic Judaism is based on Talmuds written by Pharisees and Rabbis. It has no connection with the Priestly Judaism which we see in the Torah. According to them, the Oral Traditions were given to the 70 elders in the Foot of Sinai secretly without the knowledge of Moses. The Pharisees believed that these 70 elders received much more profound revelation than Moses and that is to be passed on Orally (not to be written down).
Do you know why they had to invent this new story? Of Course, the Law of Moses condemns them. They have to take support from a folk tale. Moreover, the same thing which they insisted to be passed down orally was Written and added to the Talmud. The Talmuds are a big library of 36 volumes. These oral traditions took precedence over the Written Torah (Genesis to Deuteronomy).
Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Mark 7:7
What is there in the Talmud?
Talmud is also called the constitution of Judaism. This is the go-to manual for all Jews. The ones that are popularly referred by the Rabbis are the Talmud Edition published in 1881. Apart from the oral traditions which Jesus condemned, it also had something which is very offensive. The Jews know very well that certain volumes in the Talmud were written to Curse Jesus and fool people that Jesus is Not the Messiah. Therefore, they conceal the blasphemous statements by saying that the Talmud is very complicated and they do not read it. Let us see some samples from the Talmud which was written to cover up their failure after the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the spread of Christianity. It was written hundreds of years into their exile. We can get these passages from the book called “Jesus in the Talmud” by Peter Schafer(Director of Judaic Studies at Princeton University). You need not scan the 36 volumes for it.
So now that you have seen the Talmudic contents, do you think these kinds of literature will ever get them to Christ so that they can be saved? They gloat about their actions in killing Jesus. See how they compare him to Balaam and claim it was God’s curse of Jesus.
By injecting such corrupt, blasphemous and hateful teachings and overriding the teachings of Tanakh (Torah, Navim, Ketuvim), they invented a new religion which is NOT AT ALL the one that was given to Moses. They say that you can only understand the Old Testament through the Talmuds. Their Only hope was Jesus and now that they have rejected him completely, what do you think should be happening to them?
In the book of Revelation Jesus says that he knows about these people who are deceiving others.
….. I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan Rev 2:9
9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Rev 3:9
On a different note, do you know why TPM spreads lies and hateful rumours about people who Challenge their Doctrines and their cult?
