"To see Jesus with bodily eyes is... a wonderful thing! It only remains that we know if it is true. In all ages men have covered falsehoods with the veil of religion, that the appearance of divinity might conceal the human fraud." (Petrach, Decamaron.)

Trick or Treat:

The mystery of the hated Judaizer revealed.

A very short enjoyable Bible study. 

By Guest Contributor FDL

The term Judaizing has been used as a shaming tool by Satan to silence Jesus and anyone who would dare teach Jesus. This term could easily have been coined by the Triple K. 

 

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:22-23.

Strong's Concordance provides a clear understanding identifying those whom Jesus will turn away, “ye that work iniquity.” What does that mean?

458 anomía (from 1 /A "not" and 3551 /nómos, "law") – properly, without law; lawlessness; the utter disregard for God's law (His written and living Word).

3551 nómos – law. 3551 (nómos) is used of: a) the Law (Scripture), with emphasis on the first five books of Scripture; or b) any system of religious thinking (theology), especially when nomos occurs without the Greek definite article.

This is what Jesus says, and NOT the rewriting of the Bible by King James, Darby, Schofield or Spurgeon. If you are not subject to the laws of God given to Moses, even though you did wonderful works, Jesus Himself will say, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work outside My law.”

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matthew 7.

Those who hear and do the teachings of Jesus will be as a wise man. The teachings cannot be disputed as insults are hurled. Their arguments are well built upon the Rock of Jesus.

Those who want to hate upon the Judaizing Jesus will not do His sayings. They instead turn to another who will tickle their ears called Saul of Tarsus disguised as the self appointed apostle Paul. When examined through the testing filters of Jesus’s words, the house built upon Paul’s nocturnal visions will fall and great will be that fall. 

“If ye love me, keep my (God’s) commandments.” John 14:15

The good people were not fooled.

27 ...They stirred up the whole crowd and seized him, 28 shouting, “Fellow Israelites, help us! This is the man who teaches everyone everywhere against our people and our law and this place. And besides, he has brought Greeks into the temple and defiled this holy place.” Acts 21.

The Good Shepherd was not fooled.

2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles (Paul)but are not, and have found them false. Revelation 2.

You need not be fooled.

23 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time.

26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24.

This will fool you if you take your eyes off Jesus. 

13 About noon, King Agrippa, as I was on the road, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, blazing around me and my companions. 14 We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’

15 “Then I asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’“ ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ the Lord replied. Acts 26.

Trick or treat; Paul or Jesus. You cannot follow both. Jesus says do not believe Paul that He appeared to him.

24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Matthew 6.

Which one will you follow?

1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11. Paul.

or

12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8. Jesus.
