Matthew 26:6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
:7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.
:8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?
:9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
:10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.
:13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever THIS GOSPEL shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.
Christ commanded Repentance and to believe in Heavenly Father's Word/Him, whom all the prophets prophesied of:
Psalms 40:7, who is the Most High's Wisdom: Proverbs 8:27, His only Begotten Son: Psalms 2:6-7, His Truth: Isaiah 42:3-4 and our Lord (Psalms 110:1):
Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou SHALT LOVE the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
:38 This is the first and great commandment.
:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou SHALT LOVE thy neighbour as thyself.
:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
We must truly worship the Heavenly Father in the same manner as it is written in the bible. Christ also taught us to love our neighbor, because we have always maintained burning hatred for one another and constant division:
Deuteronomy 28:54,56; Lamentations 4:16, Exodus 2:12-14, Isaiah 11:13, etc.
So-called blacks don't like so-called latinos, and vice-versa, furthermore educated so-called blacks and latinos look down upon their people that are "less educated". Even our complexions and hair texture can create division and animosity. Sadly, instead of using the bible to come together and apply the Lord's love with each other, we utilize it as a tool to justify hating each other or perpetuating divisions and schisms: IPeter 2:16.
If we may not agree on a minor scripture's meaning or not see all things equally the same, then we are quick to separate from one another or begin to despise each other. No mercy nor patience with one another, cruelly impatient with our brethren:
Matthew 23:23, Proverbs 16:6.
This is a major error, and we must instead love one another with a pure heart fervently, pray for one another, be patient with each other, and not be quick to dismiss or lose hope in our brethren:
Baruch 4:28 For as it was your mind to go astray from God: so, being returned, seek him ten times more.
By repenting you will be an example: ITimothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
This is important to note, some of us so-called blacks and hispanics not yet with true understanding can become very angry, resentful and hateful towards people that look like they are from other nations. Us and our forefathers faced racism and oppression and were taught many lies, so we may then try to return the hatred we received and avenge our mistreatment, as is the custom of some.
The Israelite sufferings are prophesied and a result of our sins (Deuteronomy 28:1-68, Leviticus 26:1-46, Daniel 9:12) and the LORD punished us by the hand of the nations (Jeremiah 17:4, Luke 21:24, Deuteronomy 28:47-48, Deuteronomy 28:68).
Therefore devoting energy to hating Caucasians or our enemies/oppressors past or present, is not redeeming the time, nor applying wisdom.
The LORD is having mercy in allowing many of us a reprieve in the lands of our captivities and oppression, and permitting us to return to him in these last days.
Our main concern and priority should be repentance (Malachi 3:6, IKings 8:46-50, Mark 1:15, Ezekiel 18:30-31);
The true biblical Israelites are a POOR, OPPRESSED, POWERLESS and afflicted nation, not just looked down upon and despised by other nations.
(Lamentations 2:13-17, Psalms 83:3-12, Jeremiah 50:33, Deuteronomy 28:65-66, Leviticus 26:17, etc.).
Therefore, being an Israelite according to descent, truth and nationality requires more than just claiming anti-semitism or stating you're God's chosen people:
Lamentations 2:13 What thing shall I take to witness for thee? what thing shall I liken to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? what shall I equal to thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Zion? for thy breach is great like the sea: who can heal thee?
:14 Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.
:15 All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth? (nations cannot even imagine based on how we live and our current reputation that we are the people of Christ, King David and King Solomon)
:16 All thine enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they hiss and gnash the teeth: they say, We have swallowed her up: certainly this is the day that we looked for; we have found, we have seen it.
:17 The LORD hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.
(Horn = Power, Deuteronomy 28:47-48)
Zechariah 8:13 And it shall come to pass, that AS YE WERE A CURSE among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong.
(Even though the true Israelites live among the nations, oppressed, in the ghettos, projects, reservations, favelas, and in horrific conditions and crime-ridden, impoverished and disadvantaged areas, we are the LORD'S sons and daughters, and He did not forget nor forsake us!)
The children of Israel cry to the LORD for help when they are in need, because they are the sons of the Lord (Exodus 4:22, Jeremiah 31:9) and are joined to Him (Jeremiah 3:14, Isaiah 49:14-16).
Our help will only come from worshipping in the LORD in spirit and in truth (John 4:22-24), He is our Power (Deuteronomy 6:4).
Christ, Samson, Elijah, Samuel, King David, Esther, etc., and all the righteous of the nation of Israel always seek the Lord for help as it remains this day. He is our God and our POWER! When He turns His face from us, we cannot prosper nor even defend ourselves, because our strength comes from the LORD:
ISamuel 15:29, Jeremiah 17:13.
During Civil Rights, against Firemen's powerful hoses and Police Dogs and the Police (services to protect citizens), the people cried unto the Lord, because we had no one else that would protect or defend us, and we also COMPLETELY lacked the ability to defend ourselves.
The LORD is our only hope, even though we suffer the MOST injustices and our afflictions are evident for all to behold. However, our suffering is only for a short season (Jeremiah 17:7, IThessalonians 5:9, IICorinthians 4:17-18, Romans 8:17-18, IIMaccabees 6:12-16, John 16:20-22, Acts 14:22, etc.) and our salvation is at hand!
Exodus 2:23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.
:24 And God HEARD their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
(Israel was completely weak and at the mercy of our cruel enemies (Egyptians) in ancient times, the same as our slavery in modern day Egypt, which is America (Revelations 11:8, Isaiah 19:1, IIEsdras 15:10-11, Deuteronomy 28:68.)
Ecclesiasticus 2:10 Look at the generations of old, and see; DID EVER ANY trust in the Lord, and was confounded? or DID ANY abide in his fear, and was forsaken? or WHOM DID he ever despise, that called upon him?
[ALWAYS trust in the Heavenly Father brothers and sisters, and our Redeemer Christ: Psalms 2:6-12 Psalms 130:8.]
Part of the Jewish (so-called Jews) doctrine and tradition is that mothers (matriarchal lineage) determine the nationality and heritage of a Jew. The primary reason this is alleged BY THEM is this ONE scripture which is taken out of context:
Ezra 10:3 Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law.
They state this scripture supports their hypothesis and opinion that the matriarch determines one's nationality, and a person's mother determines their true heritage. But this false and private interpretation contradicts the bible in Matthew 1:1-17, Numbers 3:1-34, Ezra 2:59, Genesis 31:3, Deuteronomy 32;7-9, Wisdom of Solomon 7:2, Genesis 48:15-16, Acts 3:13, Ezekiel 34:31, Ruth 4:13-22, Ezra 7:1-6, Job 8:8, etc.
Scriptures that pertain to nationality follow the lineage OF THE MALES in order to establish tribal (family) or Israelite ancestry, from the beginning (Genesis 10:1-32). The scriptures instruct us that precept must be upon precept, NO SCRIPTURE stands alone, but has other scriptures which link to it to provide a clear understanding (Isaiah 28:9-10, Isaiah 34:16).
The bible interprets itself, and through the Lord's Spirit, prayer, obedience to the LORD'S word, fasting for wisdom and understanding and humility, we can properly join the scriptures together, precept upon precept:
So-called Jews also claim to have suffered as much as so-called Black Americans, is that true?
Daniel 9:12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven HATH NOT been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.
(No nation has suffered like the children of Israel, and true people of Jerusalem. Who suffered more, the victims falsely estimated at 6,000,000* people which were killed during World War II, or the estimated 100,000,000 slaves murdered en route to serve slavery, comprised of so-called blacks and hispanics during the slave trade?
The so-called Jews accomplished swift vengeance against their enemies, and fabricated enemies, and persist today to relentlessly hunt some German generals and leaders from 1939-1945. Shortly thereafter in 1948, they completely took over the land of Israel.
However, the so-called blacks and hispanics still suffer from oppression and remain unavenged for over 500 years since Columbus presented his 1,200 slaves from Hispaniola to the King of Spain and commenced the slave trade through the Triangular Slave Trade.
Blacks and hispanics remain under the absolute control, oppression, and under the authority of the same nations and people that enslaved and forced their lies and religions upon us
(Deuteronomy 28:32-33, Zechariah 11:5, Deuteronomy 33:29, etc.).
Zechariah 11:5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves NOT guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.
(There is no remorse, but guiltless celebration, holidays (Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Colombus day, etc) arrogance and boasting, while our "leaders" [Isaiah 9:16] joined and join to America and support it. As our people continue to wallow in the punishments and curses for our sins, and NOT being taught true repentance.
"God bless America, my home sweet home," "In God we trust," "Manifest Destiny," "Columbus Day," "Discovery of the New World in 1492," etc.)
In slavery, we could be killed for any reason, and there were no laws to defend us, slaves were considered by law 3/5 of a man, or like cattle and not worthy of benefits nor equality in the Constitution or any state or federal laws, and much of this institutional racism and unremittingly disgraceful injustice REMAINS intact in 2016.
Murder and oppression are wrong, whether those in 'third world' countries suffer it, or if so-called Jews in Concentration Camps suffered it, or citizens of the middle east suffer it, or so-called blacks and hispanics suffer it.
The issue is, who suffered more, because in Daniel 9:12 the bible declares no one suffered more on the whole planet earth as the TRUE Israelites have suffered. Was it people who FALSELY claim to be Jews following Judaism, that suffered in concentration camps in World War II from 1939-1945, or the Lord's people that suffered slavery and oppression from 1453-2015 in 100% agreement to the word of truth? The accurate answer ALSO confirms whom the biblical Israelites are:
Deuteronomy 28:45-46, Daniel 9:12-13, Jeremiah 17:4, Deuteronomy 28:43-44, Isaiah 9:13, Matthew 11:12, Mark 6:34, etc.
Which is the so-called Black Americans and Hispanics, and our dispersed Israelite brethren.
Immediately WHEN TRUTH SURFACES, or questions to the authenticity of European Jews' true origins, the term anti-semitism is rapidly thrown like lightning striking in an overcast sky. The term semitism describes the descendants or groups of people associated with Sem. Sem, is the english and greek translation for Shem (Luke 3:36). Shem is the son of Noah (Noe, in with Greek and english translation) and many nations stemmed from Shem, among them Esau or Edomites (Europeans including so-called Jews), the children of Israel, Ishmaelites, Elamites, Ammonites, Moabites, etc.
Therefore, being "semitic" IS NOT an exclusive term to even the true Israelites, and IS definitely NOT a term exclusive to the so-called jews, who actually are the descendants of Esau and refer to themselves as Jewish.
The modern day Israelites are scattered throughout the four corners of the earth and suffered slavery dating back to the late 1400's (most notably starting in 1492 A.D. at the hands of Christopher Columbus) and still suffer poverty, hopelessness injustice and oppression in North, Central and South America including the Caribbean islands, and throughout the whole earth.
Whether in the Brazil, Holland, England, Sweden, Cape Verde, Puerto Rico, the United States of America or the Seychelles and other islands of the sea, the Lord's scattered sheep/Israelites (Matthew 10:5-7, Jeremiah 50:6, Deuteronomy 28:64, Luke 21:24, James 1:1) will hear His voice (John 10:27) and RETURN to Him being led by his Spirit through hearing the word of truth, AND KEEPING IT: Isaiah 30:20-21, IJohn 2:27, Baruch 4:37, John 8:31-34, Genesis 49:10, Jeremiah 23:7-8, Romans 10:17, etc.:
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
The Lord revealed the fact that His elect of Israel would be gathered out of every nation under heaven, and would speak all languages, Revelations 7:9, Acts 2:1-10, Isaiah 11:11-12, Matthew 24:30-31, Deuteronomy 28:64, Baruch 4:37, James 1:1,etc..
Coming from all countries, many true Israelites would physically resemble other nations, and NOT JUST LOOK as do so-called Black Americans or so-called Hispanics, as people of color or the traditional Israelite appearance. At one time, all the twelve tribes resembled one another (Judges 12:1-7), and only an accent distinguished us. Now, even though the 12 tribes still resemble each other AS PEOPLE OF COLOR, because we have been mingled among the nations of the earth:
Amos 9:9, Luke 21:24, IPeter 1:1, ITimothy 1:4, etc., it is imperative we do not carnally judge solely on a physical basis. But righteously, as Christ did (John 7:24, John 1:47, Romans 2:28-29, Romans 8:16-17, Isaiah 59:20-21, etc.).
AGAIN, it is NOT about "looking like" an Israelite, but doing the will of our Father by repenting and worshipping Him in spirit and truth: Matthew 3:7-9.
The people that possess the land of Israel today and call themselves Israelites and Jews are NOT the LORD'S chosen people, nor the biblical Israelites and Jews, even though religions and many people in the world recognize them as the Jews:
Being an Israelite is according to nationality and actually being a direct descendant of Abraham, Issac and Jacob:
Acts 3:13, John 4:22-24, Romans 3:1-2, Romans 11:1-3, John 10:27-29, etc. One must be linked to the scriptures which pertain to the Israelites, a person cannot convert to become a Jew. For example:
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
(Israelites were murdered, enslaved and removed from Jerusalem in 70A.D., and DISCONTINUED from our true heritage. True Israelites have not returned to Israel because we have remained in all the lands we were scattered, under the authority of the people ruling the lands in which we still dwell, outside of our homeland of Israel. Non-Israelites, even ones who call themselves Jews (so-called Jews) are not descendants of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. If the people controlling the land today are the real Jews, then the Bible is untrue (Ezekiel 35:10-11, Ezekiel 36:5, etc) and that would make Christ a liar because Luke 21:24 are His words. We know Christ IS NOT a liar and that the bible is categorically true, because we have learned to let God and His word be true and every man, INCLUDING those that rule the earth, a liar!
Ezekiel 36:5 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which HAVE APPOINTED MY LAND INTO their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
(The Heavenly Father has spoken against the heathen (unholy nations) and against all Idumea (the children of Edom/Esau) the so-called Caucasians which have the LORD'S land of Israel in their possession in these last days and divide the land of Israel as if it is their land to fragment. Today the Ishmaelites (so-called Arabs) and Idumeans (Edomites) fight over the land of Israel, which does NOT belong to either of them.)
Showing love is applying the scriptures, it does not mean you are weak NOR that we love minus the law, but that you are mighty in the LORD (John 15:13, Romans 13:8-10, Ephesians 6:10-12) in obeying His word truly.
Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
:9 FOR THIS, Thou SHALT NOT commit adultery, Thou SHALT NOT kill, Thou SHALT NOT steal, Thou SHALT NOT bear false witness, Thou SHALT NOT covet; and if there be ANY other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
:10 Love worketh NO ILL to his neighbour: THEREFORE LOVE IS the fulfilling of the law.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Matthew 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Romans 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
