the status of the different covenants

 

 

Sad to say, many who claim to read and believe the Bible are diabolically disoriented about the covenants, blessings, and curses, especially: “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee, and in thee shall all the kindred of the earth be blessed” Genesis 12:3

 

Four key points to correctly understand this verse:

 

  1. It is critical to distinguish among the different covenants: Adamic, Noachic, Abrahamic, Levitic, Mosaic, Davidic, and New Covenants.
  2. Zionists consistently misidentify the synagogue of Satan as “Israel.”
  3. Nobody has ever been saved by their DNA. Even in the times of the Prophets, obedience to God was necessary.
  4. God made His covenant with Abram when he was a Gentile and was a Covenant with him and his spiritual descendants.

 

There is neither Jew nor Greek: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you be Christ’s, then are you the seed of Abraham, heirs according to the promise.  Galatians 3:28-29

 

The synagogue of Satan feigns a carnal connection to Abraham, but Jesus damned that claim:

“And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I tell you that God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham.” Matthew 3:9 In Genesis 12:3 God was not speaking to or about Jewish people because there was no Jewish nation—Abram, not yet Abraham, was still a Gentile and God was speaking to Abram alone about Abram’s spiritual lineage. St. Paul affirms in Galatians 3:6-8 that God’s covenant with Abram, later Abraham, was made to him as a Gentile:

 

“As it is written: Abraham believed God, and it was reputed to him unto justice. Know ye therefore, that they who are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing, that God justifieth the Gentiles by faith, told unto Abraham before: In thee shall all nations be blessed.”

 

St. Paul further elaborates on the justification of and covenant with Abraham before there were any Jews in Romans chapter 4.  In fact, even under Moses the “Israelites” were not called “Jews.” The word “Jew” does not appear in the Bible until a thousand years or more after Moses.

 

A clear reading of St. Paul should leave no room for confusion about the “root” and the “branches broken off.” Jesus Christ is the root. Both Jews and Gentiles were “branches.” Read Romans 11:19-25 carefully:

 

“Thou [the Gentile Christians of Rome] wilt say then: The branches were broken off, that I [the Gentile Christians] might be grafted in.  Well: because of unbelief they [the Pharisees] were broken off. But thou standest by faith: be not highminded, but fear. For if God hath not spared the natural branches, fear lest perhaps he also spare not thee.  See then the goodness and the severity of God: towards them indeed that are fallen, the severity; but towards thee, the goodness of God, if thou abide in goodness, otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.  And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.  For if thou wert cut out of the wild olive tree, which is natural to thee; and, contrary to nature, were grafted into the good olive tree; how much more shall they that are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?  For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, of this mystery, (lest you should be wise in your own conceits), that blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles should come in.”

 

Why weren’t the Pharisees in the lineage of Abraham? (Matthew 3:9) Why did Moses “accuse” them? (John 5:45-47) Only faithful Israelites followed the law of God. Contrary to the claims of Judaizers, the Pharisees did not have “the moral law of God.” Instead, Jesus said that the Pharisees had voided the commandment of God for their own traditions. (Mark 7:9) The followers of the Pharisees (see Matthew 23:15) boast that theirs is not a biblical religion, but one of their own making:

 

“The complex of rabbinically ordained practices ... including most of the rules for the treatment of Scripture itself--do not derive from Scripture at all. Rabbinic Judaism’s initial concern was with the elaboration and refinement of it’s own system. Attaching the system to scripture was secondary. It therefore is misleading to depict rabbinic Judaism primarily as a consequence of an exegetical process or the organic unfolding of Scripture. Rather, rabbinic Judaism began as the work of a small, ambitious, and homogeneous group of pseudo-priests ...By the third century (A.D.) the rabbis expressed their self-conception in the ideology of “oral Torah” which held that a comprehensive body of teachings and practices (halachot) not included in Scripture had been given by God and through Moses only to the rabbinic establishment.”

Rabbi Jacob Nuesner, Rabbinic Judaism: Structure and System, pp. 31-34

 

 

The majority of both the Old and New Testaments tells of the defection of the Israelites and Pharisees. It is true Christians (faithful, practicing Catholics!) who are the true Jews, the true New Israel, the true lineage of Abraham and Moses, the New Chosen People (1 Peter 2:9-10), the ones who are “blessed” in Abraham’s lineage (Galatians 3:6-8 and Romans 4:13), the people of the New Covenant promised in Jeremias 31:31-32.  As St. Paul explains, the Abrahamic and Mosaic Covenants are fulfilled in those in the Faith, not by those who reject the Faith, who connived the judicial murder of their Redeemer, who called His Blood down on themselves and their generations (Matthew 27:25), who blaspheme Him today. DNA—whether real or phony— has nothing to do with God’s blessings today. Under the New Covenant, people are not blessed (or cursed) by their DNA, but by baptism, belief, and behavior. See Apocalypse 2:9 and 3:9 to understand who makes false claims to be God’s People. It is by their fruits of war, genocide, usury, fractional reserve banking, swindling, and other crimes against humanity that you know the ones God named in Apocalypse 3:9.

 

Semites or Khazars—Who cares?

 

Who cares? Notwithstanding the synagogue of Satan’s Master Race creed, there is no racial back door to Heaven and no racial chute to Hell. That said and as you would expect, the science and genealogy corroborate what Jesus said. The majority of “Jews” today are Askenazim whose origins were in European Khazaria (see the map below). That most “Jews” today are of European lineage, not semitic at all, makes the synagogue’s carnal “Abraham” claim even more laughable.

 

 

Here is an interesting paper studying mitochondrial DNA (mitochondrial DNA is inherited only from the mother, so its study is apropos their tribal obsession about who is and who is not “human” in their view). The researchers are mostly of the genocidal tribe:

 

Thomas MG, Weale ME, Jones AL, Richards M, Smith A, Redhead N, Torroni A, Scozzari R, Gratrix F, Tarekegn A, Wilson JF, Capelli C, Bradman N, Goldstein DB.

Founding mothers of Jewish communities: geographically separated Jewish groups were independently founded by very few female ancestors.

Am J Hum Genet. 2002 Jun;70(6):1411-20. Epub 2002 Apr 30.

 

Simplifying the distinctly technical language of their conclusion, the researchers found diversity of mitochondrial DNA slightly less than “host populations” (interesting choice of words on the researchers’ part, since “host” certainly suggests “parasite”), so they postulate several separate “founding events.” Then they note a special connection with the nation of Georgia (part of the former region of Khazaria). Hence, the Ashkenazis are not semitic, only slightly less diverse than “host” populations, and do have genetics suggesting a slight preponderance of “founding” mothers from the region of Khazaria.

The Abrahamic Covenant with all people is irrevocable

 

The spiritual promises of the Abrahamic Covenant continue to be fulfilled in God’s new Chosen People.

 

And I will establish my covenant between me and thee, and between thy seed after thee in their generations, by a perpetual covenant: to be a God to thee, and to thy seed after thee. Genesis 17:7

 

For God making promise to Abraham, because he had no one greater by whom he might swear, swore by himself, Saying: Unless blessing I shall bless thee, and multiplying I shall multiply thee. And so patiently enduring he obtained the promise. For men swear by one greater than themselves: and an oath for confirmation is the end of all their controversy. Wherein God, meaning more abundantly to shew to the heirs of the promise the immutability of his counsel, interposed an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have the strongest comfort, who have fled for refuge to hold fast the hope set before us. Hebrews 6:13-18

 

There is neither Jew nor Greek: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you be Christ’s, then are you the seed of Abraham, heirs according to the promise.  Galatians 3:28-29

 

The physical (land) promises of the Abrahamic Covenant have already been fulfilled.

 

“And the Lord God gave to Israel all the land that he had sworn to give to their fathers: and they possessed it and dwelt in it.... Not so much as one word, which he had promised to perform unto them, was made void, but all came to pass.” Josue 21:41-43

 

“Thou, O Lord God, art he who chosest Abram, and broughtest him forth out of the fire of the Chaldeans, and gavest him the name of Abraham. And thou didst find his heart faithful before thee: and thou madest a covenant with him, to give him the land of the Chanaanite, of the Hethite, and of the Amorrhite, and of the Pherezite, and of the Jebusite, and of the Gergezite, to give it to his seed: and thou hast fulfilled thy words, because thou art just.” 2 Esdras [Nehemiah] 9:7-8

 

The Mosaic Covenant was conditional and has been revoked

 

In Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26 God specified the conditions of the Mosaic Covenant. He specified the duties of the Israelites to obey Him, the rewards if they obeyed Him, and the penalties if they disobeyed Him. See also: Leviticus 18:28; Numbers 14:23; Deuteronomy 4:26-27; 6:18; 7:12; Deuteronomy 30; Ezekiel 13:9; Jeremias 7:15; 29:13-14.

 

 

God did not promise to reward disobedience with power, admiration, or a real estate deal in the Middle East; He promised dispersal and misery, even to vomit them out.

 

 

Keep ye my ordinances and my judgments, and do not any of these abominations: neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you. For all these detestable things the inhabitants of the land have done, that; were before you, and have defiled it. Beware then, lest in like manner, it vomit you also out, if you do the like things, as it vomited out the nation that was before you. Every soul that shall commit any of these abominations, shall perish from the midst of his people. Keep my commandments. Do not the things which they have done, that have been before you, and be not defiled therein. I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 18:26-30

 

God judged the nation of Israel (see the floating column at right of  this page)

 

So, for their disobedience as a nation, as a people, the Bible says the Mosaic Covenant/Law has been replaced, annulled: “made void,” “blotted out,” “set aside,” “taken away”:

 

 

What part of replaced, annulled, “made void,” “blotted out,” “set aside,” “taken away” don’t “Bible Believers” understand?

 

Through His Angels and Prophets Jeremias and Moses, God judged that Israel, not He, had voided the Mosaic Covenant and so He warned that He would replace the Mosaic covenant:

 

Behold the days shall come, saith the Lord, and I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Juda: Not according to the covenant which I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt: the covenant which they made void, and I had dominion over them, saith the Lord. Jeremias 31:31-32

 

They are returned to the former iniquities of their fathers, who refused to hear my words: so these likewise have gone after strange gods, to serve them: the house of Israel, and the house of Juda have made void my covenant, which I made with their fathers. Jeremias 11:10

 

And the Lord said to Moses: Behold thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, and this people rising up will go a fornicating after strange gods in the land, to which it goeth in to dwell: there will they forsake me, and will make void the covenant, which I have made with them. Deuteronomy 31:16

 

…and make void my covenant. Deuteronomy 31:20

 

And the wrath of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he said: Behold this nation hath made void my covenant, which I had made with their fathers, and hath despised to hearken to my voice: Judges 2:20

 

Who also hath made us fit ministers of the new testament, not in the letter, but in the spirit. For the letter killeth, but the spirit quickeneth. Now if the ministration of death, engraven with letters upon stones, was glorious; so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses, for the glory of his countenance, which is made void: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather in glory? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more the ministration of justice aboundeth in glory. For even that which was glorious in this part was not glorified, by reason of the glory that excelleth. For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is in glory. Having therefore such hope, we use much confidence: And not as Moses put a veil upon his face, that the children of Israel might not steadfastly look on the face of that which is made void. But their senses were made dull. For, until this present day, the selfsame veil, in the reading of the old testament, remaineth not taken away (because in Christ it is made void). But even until this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.

2 Corinthians 3:6-15

 

Blotting out the handwriting of the decree that was against us, which was contrary to us. And he hath taken the same out of the way, fastening it to the cross: And despoiling the principalities and powers, he hath exposed them confidently in open shew, triumphing over them in himself. Colossians 2:14-15

 

Making void the law of commandments contained in decrees; that he might make the two in himself into one new man, making peace… Ephesians 2:15

 

There is indeed a setting aside of the former commandment, because of the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. Hebrews 7:18

 

Now of the things which we have spoken, this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of majesty in the heavens, A minister of the holies, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord hath pitched, and not man. For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is necessary that he also should have some thing to offer. If then he were on earth, he would not be a priest: seeing that there would be others to offer gifts according to the law, Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things. As it was answered to Moses, when he was to finish the tabernacle: See (saith he) that thou make all things according to the pattern which was shewn thee on the mount. But now he hath obtained a better ministry, by how much also he is a mediator of a better testament, which is established on better promises. For if that former had been faultless, there should not indeed a place have been sought for a second. For finding fault with them, he saith: Behold, the days shall come, saith the Lord: and I will perfect unto the house of Israel, and unto the house of Juda, a new testament: Not according to the testament which I made to their fathers, on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt: because they continued not in my testament: and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the testament which I will make to the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord: I will give my laws into their mind, and in their heart will I write them: and I will be their God, and they shall be my people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me from the least to the greatest of them: Because I will be merciful to their iniquities, and their sins I will remember no more. Now in saying a new, he hath made the former old. And that which decayeth and groweth old, is near its end. Hebrews 8:1-13

 

Then said I: Behold, I come to do thy will, O God: he taketh away the first, that he may establish that which followeth. Hebrews 10:9

 

Therefore I say to you, that the kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and shall be given to a nation yielding the fruits thereof. Matthew 21:43

 

But you [speaking to the Christians] are a chosen generation, a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people: that you may declare his virtues, who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: Who in time past were not a people: but are now the people of God. Who had not obtained mercy; but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10

 

 

As for the synagogue’s supposed real estate deal in the Holy Land, the Bible says this:

 

When you shall have transgressed the covenant of the Lord your God, which he hath made with you, and shall have served strange gods, and adored them: then shall the indignation of the Lord rise up quickly and speedily against you, and you shall be taken away from this excellent land, which he hath delivered to you. Josue (Joshua) 23:16

 

 

Supersessionism, “replacement theology,” is God’s theology.

The Old Covenant: Revoked or Not Revoked?: “Jews and Christians: A Journey of Faith” by Robert A. Sungenis, Ph.D., Culture Wars, January 2008

The Old Covenant is Revoked: The USCCB Removes Heretical Sentence from its Catechism by Robert A. Sungenis, Ph.D., Culture Wars, October 2008

http://www.culturewars.com/2008/USCCCatechism.htm

 

Holy Writ is one line of evidence. Reason is another line of evidence.

 

If the Mosaic Covenant was sufficient to save, to open the gates of Heaven, if the insufficient animal sacrifices of the Mosaic Covenant did not need to be superseded by the New Covenant promised in Jeremias 31:31-32, there would never have been a need for the Incarnation, Ministry, Passion, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, True God and True Man, Messiah, Who can neither deceive nor be deceived.

 

The everlasting Covenant is fulfilled in the New Israel, the New Covenant, the One True Church that Jesus Christ Himself founded for His New Chosen People, the spiritual lineage of Abraham and Moses, the people who choose Him, who are baptized, believe, and behave as He taught.

 

God is no fool Who engages in useless works. Believe God or believe the rabbis—every person’s choice, every person’s eternal fate.

 

A third line of evidence for supersession is the Magisterium

 

Ҥ 712 It [the Holy Catholic Church] firmly believes, professes, and teaches that the matter pertaining to the law of the Old Testament, of the Mosaic law, which are divided into ceremonies, sacred rites, sacrifices, and sacraments, because they were established to signify something in the future, although they were suited to Divine worship at that time, after our Lord's coming had been signified by them, ceased, and the Sacraments of the New Testament began; and that whoever, even after the passion, placed hope in these matters of law and submitted himself to them as necessary for salvation, as if faith in Christ could not save without them, sinned mortally. Yet it does not deny that after the passion of Christ up to the promulgation of the Gospel they could have been observed until they were believed to be in no way necessary for salvation; but after the promulgation of the Gospel it asserts they cannot be observed without the loss of eternal salvation. All, therefore, who after that time observe circumcision and the Sabbath and the other requirements of the law, it declares alien to the Christian faith and not in the least fit to participate in eternal salvation, unless someday they recover from these errors....

 

“§714 The Most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews, and heretics, and schismatics, can ever be partakers of eternal life, but that they are to go into the eternal fire 'which was prepared for the devil, and his angels,' (Matthew 25:41) unless before death they are joined with Her; and that so important is the unity of this Ecclesiastical Body, that only those remaining within this unity can profit from the sacraments of the Church unto salvation, and that they alone can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, alms deeds, and other works of Christian piety and duties of a Christian soldier. No one, let his almsgiving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Christ, can be saved unless they abide within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

 

Cantate Domino, from the infallible ecumenical Council of Florence under His Holiness Pope Eugene IV defining the Solemn Doctrine: Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus (“Outside the Church, there is no salvation.”), promulgated by papal bull, February 4, 1444 [Florentine calendar] in Denziger, Enchiridion Symbolorum, The Sources of Catholic Dogma, § 712-714

 

“Hence, also, that understanding of its sacred dogmas must be perpetually retained, which Holy Mother Church has once declared; and there must never be recession from that meaning under the specious name of a deeper understanding.”

 

Dei Filius, from the infallible ecumenical First Vatican Council, Dogmatic Constitution , Ch. 4 [1870] in Denziger, Enchiridion Symbolorum, The Sources of Catholic Dogma, § 1800

 

 

Still “Chosen”?

 

The Israelites, specifically the House of David, were chosen (past tense) for the birth of their Messiah. The good Israelites accepted their Messiah and the New Covenant that was promised in Jeremias 31:31-32, a new covenant because the Israelites as a nation had voided the Mosaic Covenant (see also Mark 7:7-9). Those who chose their Messiah were the New Israel, the true Jews in the lineage of Abraham and Moses.

 

The wicked Israelites connived their Messiah’s judicial murder over the objection of the timid Roman governor.

 

Those who choose to reject and revile Him still are no longer “chosen.” They do not have a deed to the Holy Land. They are exactly what God Himself says in Apocalypse 3:9: “…the synagogue of Satan, those who say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie.” God’s Words—Does God “hate” them? Or do they hate Him?

 

God has been crystal clear about HIS JUDGEMENT and HIS PUNISHMENT for their free will behavior and genocidal Master Race creed (“The best of the Gentiles should all be killed.”):

 

 

What part of that is difficult to understand?

 

 

Who are the Chosen People Today?

 

But you [speaking to the Christians] are a chosen generation, a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people: that you may declare his virtues, who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: Who in time past were not a people: but are now the people of God. Who had not obtained mercy; but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10

 

“Christian” Zionism

 

an advanced “Christian” Zionist at Bible classEvangelicals consistently misidentify the synagogue of Satan as “Israel,” underscoring one of the most salient errors of Protestantism—that every dyslexic with a censored/abridged “bible” is his own little pope. The Hagee-ites and other Judaizers don’t understand—don’t want to understand—that the Old Law is dead and there is a New Chosen People.

 

The “synagogue of Satan” (Apocalypse 2:9; 3:9) was instrumental in the development of the Scofield Reference Bible that forms Zionist dispensationalism. The children of the Father of Lies and Murder want to trick today's Chosen People into believing that prophesies of return from the Captivity, prophesies of Antiochus and the Maccabees, and prophesies of Jesus Christ's First Coming instead apply to the End Times and the synagogue of Satan's project in the Middle East.

 

The synagogue of Satan instigated and abetted all the major heresies, including Protestantism and Islam.   Protestants returned the “favor” by instigating and abetting Zionism. In the 16th century, after Henry VIII’s break from the Church a lapsed Anglican clergyman Francis Kett encouraged his followers to go to Palestine because Jesus was “gathering his people in Jerusalem in his owne person.” Kett’s rabid anti-Catholicism remains one of the most enduring tenets of “Christian” Zionism. Protestant Elizabeth eventually burned Kett at the stake, but English Puritans continued to foster bizarre beliefs about the lost tribes of Israel, an obsession that they imported to the Netherlands and then to America. John Winthrop of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, then John Mather, his son Increase Mather, and grandson Cotton Mather proselytized a proto-Zionism. Cotton Mather promoted the 18th century “messiah” Zabbatai Zevi until Zevi apostatized into, of all things, Islam of the Ottoman Empire. Shocked in the recognition of his own gross errors, Cotton Mather recanted his Judaic obsessions shortly before his death, but others continued to run with the same exegetical errors.

 

The world recognized the humiliating failure of the proto-Zionist “messiah,” yet shameless Protestants still proselytized proto-Zionist rhetoric: British travel entrepreneur Thomas Cook, Jonathan Edwards, George Whitfield, and others. In 1793 a former British Royal Navy officer, Richard Brothers, proclaimed himself “Prince of the Hebrews.” In 1814, a 64-year-old “prophetess” Joanna Southcott announced that she was the woman of Apocalypse chapter 12 and that she was pregnant with the new “messiah.” She died without child a few weeks after the anticipated birth. One of Queen Victoria’s Prime Ministers, Lord Palmerston, became the first significant crusader for returning “Jews” to Palestine. In his 1853 letter to then-Prime Minister Aberdeen Shaftesbury, Palmerston wrote one of the most enduring deceits of Zionism. Against overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Palmerston penned that Greater Syria was “a country without a nation” in need of a “nation without a country.” The claim of “British Israel” fanned the flames of global British Imperialism by the “chosen” and led to the infamous Balfour Declaration.

 

In America, the Puritans were followed by a succession of Zionists, most known among them John Nelson Darby of “dispensationalism” and all its Zionism, “rapture,” and other heresies. What irony that Jewish-spawned Protestantism itself spawned Zionism long before any “Jews” adopted the heresy. Eventually, “Jews” like Theodor Herzl and Samuel Untermeyer adopted Zionism and they also adopted and financed the ex-convict Scofield who wrote his Scofield Reference Bible, a farce that has seduced a century of evangelicals and other maniacal “Christian” Zionists.

 

The children of the Father of Lies and Murder want to trick today's Chosen People into believing that prophesies of return from the Captivity, prophesies of Antiochus and the Maccabees, and prophesies of Jesus Christ's First Coming instead apply to the End Times and the synagogue of Satan's project in the Middle East.

 

“Upon his release from prison, Scofield deserted his first wife, Leonteen Carry Scofield, and his two daughters Abigail and Helen, and he took as his mistress a young girl from the St. Louis Flower Mission. He later abandoned her for Helen van Ward, whom he eventually married. Following his Illuminati connections to New York, he settled in at the Lotus Club, which he listed as his residence for the next twenty years.” http://www.sweetliberty.org/issues/hoax/scofield.htm

 

It was here that he presented his ideas for a new Judeo-Protestant “Bible” concordance, and was taken under the wing of Samuel Untermeyer, who later became chairman of the American Jewish Committee, president of the American League of Jewish Patriots, and chairman of the Non-sectarian Anti-Nazi League,the same Samuel Untermeyer who before any other nation declared World War 2 in his 1933 declaration of war on behalf of World Jewry against Germany.

 

 

Untermeyer introduced Scofield to numerous Zionist and socialist leaders, including Samuel Gompers, Fiorello LaGuardia, Abraham Straus, Bernard Baruch and Jacob Schiff. These were the people who financed Scofield’s research trips to Oxford and arranged the publication and distribution of his Concordance.

Shemitah

 

In 2015 many Judaizers pushed their shemitah superstitions, pretending that, despite Jesus’ clear statement that “no man knoweth” (Mark 13:32), that they know the time because of the dead letter of the shemitah.

 

Two key points for those who believe Jesus, not the rabbis:

 

  1. The New Covenant ended the legitimacy of the shemitah.
  2. Under the Old Law the shemitah included forgiveness of all debts.

 

Research “prozbul.” You will never see the Judaizers tell the embarrassing truth about the shemitah. The rabbis make a phony claim that Rabbi Hillel’s prozbul loophole was intended to protect the poor (a line of manure that Wikipedia parrots), but the prozbul transfer of private debts to the public ledger and then, after the shemitah year, transferring the debt back to the original creditors actually harmed poor debtors. As Jesus charged,  this is just one of many examples that the rabbis “voided the commandments of God for the traditions of men” (Mark 7:7-9) The prozbul is a phony loophole concocted by the rabbis to allow debts to be collected after the shemitah year and it was Hillel’s loophole that protected not poor people, but the banksters of his day.

 

evangelize and convert

 

Our Christian charity demands that we love and pray for our enemies and the enemies of God. Certainly the free will choices of those who remain in the synagogue damn them, but we owe it to them to evangelize their conversion and to sincerely pray for their conversion. The real Jew-haters are the ones who tell them everything is just fine, that they can be saved in their racial supremacism, crimes against humanity, looting, megalomania, paganism, perversion, and self-worship.  Anger against the perpetrators is just, but we cannot behave or believe like the vengeful synagogue of Satan.

 

“But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you…” Matthew 5:44

 

That does not mean that we evangelize them with smarmy flattery, but with plain truth:

 

  • “It is the greatest cruelty to use ointment where it is necessary to cut deep with steel and cauterize with fire” St. Teresa of Avila
  • “The declared enemies of God and His Church, heretics and schismatics, must be criticized as much as possible, as long as truth is not denied. It is a work of charity to shout: ‘Here is the wolf!’ when it enters the flock or anywhere else.” St. Francis de Sales
  • “For if you believe not that I am he [the Messiah], you shall die in your sin..” John 8:24
  • “Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son.  Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. He that confesseth the Son, hath the Father also.” 1 John 2:22-23

 

 

Doctors of the Church

 

St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori The Passion and Death of Jesus Christ, page 444: “Poor Jews! You invoked a dreadful curse upon your own heads in saying: ‘His blood be upon us and our children’; and that curse, miserable race, you carry upon you to this day, and to the End of Time you shall endure the chastisement of that innocent blood.”

 

St. Jerome, Epist. 151, ad Algasiam, question II: “The Jews, after having despised the truth in person, will receive lies in receiving the Antichrist.”

 

St. Ambrose, Sermo 37, The Two Ships: “The faithlessness of the Synagogue is an insult to the Savior. Therefore He chose the barque of Peter, and deserted that of Moses; that is, He rejected the faithless Synagogue, and adopts the believing Church.”

 

St. Ambrose, in The Great Commentary of Cornelius a  Lapide, Vol. 3, page 311: “O Jewish hearts, harder than rocks!”

 

St. Ambrose, Enarratio on Psalms XLIII: “This shows that the Jews, who did not want to believe in Jesus Christ, will believe in the Antichrist.”

 

St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Letter #363: “The Jews must not be persecuted or chased like beasts....They are living signs that remind us of the Passion of our Lord. Besides, they are scattered through the world so that, while they pay for such a crime, they can be the witnesses of our redemption.”

 

St. Cyril of Alexandria: “It has come to pass that the last state of Israel is worse than the first for, as the Savior's disciples says (II Peter 2:21, 22), it would be better for them not to have known the way of justice than, after they have known it, to turn back from that holy commandment which was delivered to them. For that of the true proverb has happened to them: the dog has returned to his vomit, and the sow that was washed has returned to wallowing in the mire (Proverbs 26:11). And from what they afterwards dared to do, it is plain to see that they have swallowed their vomit and have turned again to wallow in their ancient mire and have lapsed into the errors of Egypt, for the evil spirit has again entered into them, and their last state has become worse than their first.”

 

St. Ephrem: “What is your iniquity, O daughter of Jacob, that your chastisement is so severe? You have dishonored the King and the King's Son, you shameless one, you harlot!”

 

St. Gregory Nazianzen: “If anyone does not worship the Crucified One, let him be anathema and numbered among the deicides.”

 

St. John Chrysostom, Homily on Romans, 6:12: “Yet surely Paul’s object everywhere is to annul this Law… And with much reason; for it was through a fear and a horror of this that the Jews obstinately opposed grace.”

 

St. John Chrysostom, Homily on Galatians, Ch 3: “And so while no one annuls a man's covenant, the covenant of God after four hundred and thirty years is annulled; for if not that covenant but another instead of it bestows what is promised, then is it set aside, which is most unreasonable” … “How dare Christians have the slightest intercourse with Jews, those most miserable of all men who are lustful, rapacious, greedy, perfidious bandits, pests of the universe! Indeed, an entire day would not suffice to tell of all their huckstering. Are they not inveterate murderers, destroyers, men possessed by the devil? They are impure and impious, and their synagogue is a house of prostitution, a lair of beasts, a place of shame and ridicule, the domicile of the devil, as also the soul of the Jew. As a matter of fact, Jews worship the devil: their rites are criminal and impure; their religion a disease; their synagogue an assembly of crooks, a den of thieves, a cavern of devils, an abyss of perdition. Why are the Jews degenerated? Because of their hateful assassination of Christ. This supreme crime lies at the root of their degradation and their woes. The rejection and dispersion of the Jews was the work of God, not of emperors. It was done by the wrath of God and because of His absolute abandonment of the Jews. Thus the Jews will live under the yoke of slavery without end. God hates the Jews, and on Judgment Day He will say to those who sympathize with them: ‘Depart from Me, for you had intercourse with My murderers!’ Flee, then, from their assemblies, fly from their houses, and, far from venerating the synagogue, hold it in hatred and aversion.”

 

St. John Chrysostom, First Homily Adversus Judaeos: “Many, I know, respect the Jews and think that their present way of life is a venerable one. This is why I hasten to uproot and tear out this deadly opinion. I said that the synagogue is no better than a theater and I bring forward a prophet as my witness. Surely the Jews are not more deserving of belief than their prophets. ‘You had a harlot's brow; you became shameless before all.’ Where a harlot has set herself up, that place is a brothel. But the synagogue is not only a brothel and a theater; it also is a den of robbers and a lodging for wild beasts. Jeremiah said: ‘Your house has become for me the den of a hyena.’ He does not simply say ‘of wild beast,’ but ‘of a filthy wild beast,’ and again: ‘I have abandoned my house, I have cast off my inheritance.’ But when God forsakes a people, what hope of salvation is left? When God forsakes a place, that place becomes the dwelling of demons.”

 

St. John Chrysostom, Catena Aurea, Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 27: “Observe here the infatuation of the Jews; their headlong haste, and destructive passions will not let them see what they ought to see, and they curse themselves, saying, ‘His blood be upon us,’ and even entail the curse upon their children. Yet a merciful God did not ratify this sentence, but accepted such of them and of their children as repented; for Paul was of them, and many thousands of those who in Jerusalem believed.”

 

St. John Chrysostom, Homily II:

“…(6) I have spoken these words to you. You will speak them to those Judaizers, and they to their wives. ‘Fortify one another.’ If a catechumen is sick with this disease, let him be kept outside the church doors. If the sick one be a believer and already initiated, let him be driven from the holy table. For not all sins need exhortation and counsel; some sins, of their very nature, demand cure by a quick and sharp excision. The wounds we can tolerate respond to more gentle cures; those which have festered and cannot be cured, those which are feeding on the rest of the body, need cauterization with a point of steel. So is it with sins. Some need long exhortation; others need sharp rebuke.

“(7) This is why Paul did not enjoin us to exhort in every case but also to rebuke sharply: ‘Wherefore rebuke them sharply.’ Therefore, I will now rebuke them sharply, so that they may accuse themselves and feel shame for what they have done. Then they will never again be hurt by that sinful fast.

“(8) So I shall put aside exhortation henceforth as I testify and exclaim: ‘If any man does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let a curse be upon him.’ What greater evidence could there be that a man does not love our Lord than when he participates in the festival with those who slew Christ? It was not I who hurled the curse at them, but Paul. Rather, it was not Paul but Christ, who spoke through him and said earlier: ‘Those who are justified in the law have fallen away from grace.’

“(9) So speak these words to them, read aloud to them these texts. Show all your zeal in saving them. When you have snatched them from the devil’s jaws, bring them to me on the day of the Jewish fast. Then, after I have kept the rest of my promise to you, let us, with one accord and with one voice, join our brothers in giving glory to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for to Him is glory forever. Amen.”

 

St. Augustine, Letters, 74, 4: “Instead of the grace of the law which has passed away, we have received the grace of the gospel which is abiding; and instead of the shadows and types of the old dispensation, the truth has come by Jesus Christ. Jeremiah also prophesied thus in God’s name: ‘Behold, the days come, says the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah...’ Observe what the prophet says, not to Gentiles, who had not been partakers in any former covenant, but to the Jewish nation. He who has given them the law by Moses, promises in place of it the New Covenant of the gospel, that they might no longer live in the oldness of the letter, but in the newness of the spirit.”

 

St Augustine, in The Anguish of the Jews by Fr Edward Flannery, Macmillan, 1954 (cf), and in The Faith of the Early Fathers by Fr Jurgens, Collegeville, 1979: “Judaism, since Christ, is a corruption; indeed, Judas is the image of the Jewish people: their understanding of Scripture is carnal; they bear the guilt for the death of the Savior, for through their fathers they have killed Christ. The Jews held Him; the Jews insulted Him; the Jews bound Him; they crowned Him with thorns and dishonored Him by spitting upon Him; they scourged Him; they heaped abuses on Him; they hung Him upon a tree.”

 

St. Basil the Great: “If someone should kill the beloved son of a man, and then stretch forth their hands still stained with blood to the afflicted father, asking for fellowship, would not the blood of his son, visible on the hand of his murderer, provoke him to just anger instead? And such are the prayers of the Jews, for when they stretch forth their hands in prayer, they only remind God the Father of their sin against His Son. And at every stretching-forth of their hands, they only make it obvious that they are stained with the blood of Christ. For they who persevere in their blindness inherit the blood-guilt of their fathers; for they cried out: ‘His blood be upon us, and upon our children’ (Matthew xxvii.25).”

 

Saints

 

Pope St. Pius V, Hebraeorum gens: “The Jewish people fell from the heights because of their faithlessness and condemned their Redeemer to a shameful death. Their godlessness has assumed such forms that, for the salvation of our own people, it becomes necessary to prevent their disease. Besides usury, through which Jews everywhere have sucked dry the property of impoverished Christians, they are accomplices of thieves and robbers; and the most damaging aspect of the matter is that they allure the unsuspecting through magical incantations, superstition, and witchcraft to the Synagogue of Satan and boast of being able to predict the future. We have carefully investigated how this revolting sect abuses the name of Christ and how harmful they are to those whose life is threatened by their deceit. On account of these and other serious matters, and because of the gravity of their crimes which increase day to day more and more, We order that, within 90 days, all Jews in our entire earthly realm of justice -- in all towns, districts, and places -- must depart these regions.”

 

St. Padre Pio, in the Calvary of Padre Pio by Joseph Pagnossin, 1978 Padua, Italy, page 91: “The Jews are enemies of God and foes of our holy religion.”

 

St. Gregory of Nyssa: “Jews are slayers of the Lord, murderers of the prophets, enemies and haters of God, adversaries of grace, enemies of their father's faith, advocates of the devil, a brood of vipers, slanderers, scoffers, men of darkened minds, the leaven of Pharisees, a congregation of demons, sinners, wicked men, haters of goodness!”

 

St. Justin Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, Ch 11: Now, law placed against law has abrogated that which is before it, and a covenant which comes after in like manner has put an end to the previous one; and an eternal and final law – namely, Christ – has been given to us, and the covenant is trustworthy…Have you not read…by Jeremiah, concerning this same new covenant, He thus speaks: ‘Behold, the days come,’ says the Lord, ‘that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah…’”

 

St.Vincent Ferrer, himself a convert from Judaism: “One who dies a Jew will be damned!”

 

St. Felix of Toledo, On the Condemnation of the Jews, Council XVII of Toledo, Spain, Canon No. 8: “It is known that the Jewish people are polluted with wickedness, blasphemy, and the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ so that their wickedness has no limit.”

 

St. Hippolytus, Against the Jews, God’s condemnation upon the Deicide of Perfidious Judaism is eternal:

“…5. Listen with understanding, O Jew, to what the Christ says: ‘They gave me gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.’ And these things He did indeed endure from you. Hear the Holy Ghost tell you also what return He made to you for that little portion of vinegar. For the prophet says, as in the person of God, ‘Let their table become a snare and retribution.’ Of what retribution does He speak? Manifestly, of the misery which has now got hold of thee.
“6. And then hear what follows: ‘Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not.’ And surely ye have been darkened in the eyes of your soul with a darkness utter and everlasting. For now that the true light has arisen, ye wander as in the night, and stumble on places with no roads, and fall headlong, as having forsaken the way that saith, ‘I am the way.” - John xiv. 6. Furthermore, hear this yet more serious word: ‘And their back do thou bend always’; that means, in order that they may be slaves to the nations, not four hundred and thirty years as in Egypt, nor seventy as in Babylon, but bend them to servitude, he says, ‘always.’ In fine, then, how dost thou indulge vain hopes, expecting to be delivered from the misery which holdeth thee? For that is somewhat strange. And not unjustly has he imprecated this blindness of eyes upon thee. But because thou didst cover the eyes of Christ, (and) thus thou didst beat Him, for this reason, too, bend thou thy back for servitude always. And whereas thou didst pour out His blood in indignation, hear what thy recompense shall be: ‘Pour out Thine indignation upon them, and let Thy wrathful anger take hold of them’; and, ‘Let their habitation be desolate,’ to wit, their celebrated temple.
“7. But why… was the temple made desolate? … but it was because they killed the Son of their Benefactor, for He is coeternal with the Father. Whence He saith, ‘Father, let their temple be made desolate’; Cf. Matt. xxiii. 38. for they have persecuted Him whom Thou didst of Thine own will smite for the salvation of the world; that is, they have persecuted me with a violent and unjust death, ‘and they have added to the pain of my wounds.’ In former time, as the Lover of man, I had pain on account of the straying of the Gentiles; but to this pain they have added another, by going also themselves astray. Wherefore ‘add iniquity to their iniquity, and tribulation to tribulation, and let them not enter into Thy righteousness,’ that is, into Thy kingdom; but ‘let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous,’ that is, with their holy fathers and patriarchs.
“8. What sayest thou to this, O Jew? It is neither Matthew nor Paul that saith these things, but David, thine anointed, who awards and declares these terrible sentences on account of Christ. And like the great Job, addressing you who speak against the righteous and true, he says, ‘Thou didst barter the Christ like a slave, thou didst go to Him like a robber in the garden.’
“9. I produce now the prophecy of Solomon, which speaketh of Christ, and announces clearly and perspicuously things concerning the Jews; and those which not only are befalling them at the present time, but those, too, which shall befall them in the future age, on account of the contumacy and audacity which they exhibited toward the Prince of Life; for the prophet says, The ungodly said, … about Christ, ‘Let us lie in wait for the righteous, because he is not for our turn, and he is clean contrary to our doings and words, and upbraideth us with our offending the law, and professeth to have knowledge of God; and he calleth himself the Child of God.’ Wisd. ii. 1, 12, 13. And then he says, ‘He is grievous to us even to behold; for his life is not like other men’s, and his ways are of another fashion. We are esteemed of him as counterfeits, and he abstaineth from our ways as from filthiness, and pronounceth the end of the just to be blessed.’- Wisd. ii. 15, 16.”

The Holy See and the Jews, published by the Ligue Franc-Catholique (the League of the French Catholic) at 11 bis, rue Portalis, Paris, France. The League is a lay group of Catholics for patriotic and social defense, founded by Monseigneur Jouin, Apostolic Prothonotary, Cure of St. Augustine parish, Paris in 1913. The magazine was founded March 23, 1918, with the approval of the Holy See. Monseigneur Jouin was a recognized authority on Jewish history and objectives and the necessity for exposing the facts in defense of Christianity. The Vatican formally praised him for this work of enlightenment as far back as June 20, 1919, in a letter signed by Cardinal Gasparri, Papal Secretary of State. Monseigneur Jouin died in 1932.

Pope Innocent IV, Letter to King Louis IX of France, May 9, 1244: “The ... Jews ... omitting or scorning the Mosaic law and the prophets, follow certain traditions of their seniors concerning which the Lord rebukes them in the Gospel, saying: ‘Why do you transgress the mandate of God and irritate Him by your traditions, teaching human doctrines and mandates?’ [Matthew 15;9] Upon this sort of traditions, which in Hebrew are called the Talmud--and there is a great book among them exceeding the text of the Bible in length, in which are manifest blasphemies against God and Christ and the blessed Virgin, intricate fables, erroneous abuses, and unheard-of stupidities--they nourish and teach their sons and render them utterly alien from the doctrine of the law and the prophets ...”

 

Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis, para. 29: “…the New Testament took the place of the Old Law which had been abolished…but on the gibbet of His death Jesus made void the Law with its decrees fastened the handwriting of the Old Testament to the Cross.”

 

Pope Innocent III: “Crucifiers of Christ ought to be held in continual subjection.”

 

Pope St. Pius V, Hebraeorum gens: “The Jewish people fell from the heights because of their faithlessness and condemned their Redeemer to a shameful death. Their godlessness has assumed such forms that, for the salvation of our own people, it becomes necessary to prevent their disease.

Pope Pius VII: “For when the liberty of all ‘religions’ is indiscriminately asserted, by this very fact truth is confounded with error and the holy and immaculate Spouse of Christ, the Church, outside of which there can be no salvation, is set on a par with the sects of heretics and with Judaic perfidy itself.”

 

Pope Paul IV, Cum Nimis Absurdum: “Desiring firstly, as much as we can with [the help of] God, to beneficially provide, by this [our decree] that will forever be in force, we ordain that for the rest of time, in the City as well as in other states, territories and domains of the Church of Rome itself, all Jews are to live in only one [quarter] to which there is only one entrance and from which there is but one exit, and if there is not that capacity [in one such quarter, then], in two or three or however many may be enough; [in any case] they should reside entirely side by side in designated streets and be thoroughly separate from the residences of Christians... Moreover, concerning the matter that Jews should be recognizable everywhere: [to this end] men must wear a hat, women, indeed, some other evident sign, yellow in color... Moreover, these Jews are to be limited to the trade of rag-picking, and they cannot trade in grain, barley or any other commodity essential to human welfare.”
