I’ll Trade Compromise for Peace

It’s no secret that the one and only church has spent many years of its history killing and murdering those who will not agree to its principles of faith. We were warned by Yeshua the Messiah in Mt 24:9[1] that the religious system that killed him would also seek to kill his disciples. Maybe that is a definition of a religious system. It kills those who disagree with the theme and story of the religion either figuratively or in actuality.

I first got an earful of this when I was hired by a Jewish man, Steve, in Seattle to work at his recording studio to produce commercials. Every Easter, I was told, the christians would get out of their religious schools and walk by the Jewish schools and pick fights because, of course, it was the Jews who killed Jesus.[2]

I was a new believer and I was certain that my boss was talking about the Catholics and certainly not my branch of christianity. We surely didn’t subscribe to that. But to a Jew, a christian is a christian no matter what flavor. I remember hearing about the christian minister running an ad agency who was a notorious slow pay and one day the boss said he was going to meet with a telephone company rep to see if he could “christian him down” and get a better price on the contract. It was mockery and I had a good laugh with him over it. How many times have I heard christians use a similar term derogatorily towards Jews.

At that time, I was shocked to hear about “christian” violence against Jews. My church had no historical teaching that covered the subject. It was only relatively recently that I learned that Hitler was a Catholic and the Nazi’s used the statements of Martin Luther to justify their genocide of the Jews in the ovens before the Nuremberg tribunals. Folks, that’s RECENT history! Most christians in Deutschland looked the other way. In America, the government suppressed dissemination of the intelligence the US had on what Hitler was up to with the Jews.[3]

Even today, the christian church won’t own this.

Yeshua the Messiah was a Hebrew. Constantine in the 4th century forced the believers to compromise. The decree went something like this. “We, the Roman Government, will stop killing you, the believers in the Hebrew Messiah, if you will agree to worship in our state churches on Sunday, the day we worship the sun god. Those of you who worship the Hebrew Messiah on the Saturday Sabbath will be called Judaizers and we will ban you from the church and cast you out of society.” In Christ’s love, signed //Constantine.

Beside his devotion to “Sol Invictus”[4], the invincible sun, Constantine assumed the title of Pontifex Maximus and presided over the council of Nicea which defined the Christian religious system. Constantine, the World’s first Pope? Over the centuries, the Roman Catholic religious system forced conversions on everybody including Jews. Those who stood against Constantine’s one and only faith were either killed or forced to flee the land. The Jew, Christopher Columbus was one of those who fled the inquisitions of Spain to find the new world in 1492.[5]

Do you attend church to seek the Greek Jesus stripped of all Jewishness and historical context in his words and deeds by the Roman Pontifex Maximus?[6] Then you are on the wrong side of the great divide of compromise brokered by Constantine and you have blood on your hands! What? You’re not Catholic!! Sure you are. You most certainly are. You worship on Sunday contrary to what the Bible says according to the decrees of the Pontifex Maximus. You have fallen for the grand compromise of mixing sun worship with Messiah worship. Somebody please give me chapter and verse on the authorization of moving the day of rest and worship to Sunday.

It is far better for you to repent and seek the Hebrew roots of our faith in the Jewish context of the first century. It will surprise you when you do this as the Bible will all of a sudden begin to make sense. No more twisted theologies based on the heresies of the so-called church fathers. And because God rewards those who diligently seek him[7], get ready for blessings you never knew existed or were possible.

My thanks to the Michael Rood website, aroodawakening.tv, for providing one of the richest experiences I have seen to date for those of us who seek the Messiah in His 1st century Hebrew context.

Footnotes:

[1] Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

[2] This is an old slander that doesn’t seem to want to go away. I was told by a well meaning pastor that Jew and gentile, we all were responsible for the death of the Messiah. After studying the Bible, it is clear that Yeshua the Messiah controlled all of the events that led up to his six illegal trials and execution. When He “gave up the ghost”, He asserted control over when he died.
