Jesus was not a Jew

Something very extraordinary happened just over a century before the birth of Christ. A nation of people who are utterly condemned by all the major prophets, ‘became Jews’. Isaiah makes it clear that God is personally going to personally destroy them (see below).

These people, the Edomites were converted as a group to become ‘Jews’ by John Hyrcanus in about 120BC. According to Flavius Josephus, the Jewish historian who lived just after the time of Christ, ‘They (Edom) were hereafter no other than Jews’ (Josephus Antiquities of the Jews, XIII ix 1; XV vii 9).

If you can check the passage in Josephus – please do so, and see for yourself. Cecil Roth in his Concise Jewish Encyclopedia (1980) says ‘John Hyrcanus forcibly converted [Edom] to Judaism. From then on they were part of the Jewish people..’ (p 154). According to the Jewish Encyclopedia (1925) “Edom is in Jewry” (Volume 5 p. 41).

Who are these people called Edom?

In the time of the patriarchs, Isaac the son of Abraham had two sons, Jacob and Esau.

Jacob became the ancestor of the twelve tribes of Israel, which after the reign of Solomon split into two separate political entities, the northern ten tribes being called Israel and the southern two tribes called Judah. Esau became the ancestor of Edom, also called Idumea. The Edomites or Idumeans settled in an area that was immediately to the south of the Dead Sea, and just to the south of the area which was later to become the territory of Judah. From the beginning there existed an enmity between Jacob and Esau (Genesis 25:22) and between their progeny, Israel and Edom. This is reflected not only in the historical books but the bitter judgements against Edom in most of the prophetical writings of the Old Testament. Have a look for yourself, for example, at Isaiah chapters 34 and 63, Jeremiah chapter 49 and the entire book of Obadiah.

Revelation 19:13 describes Christ’s cloak as soaked in blood. Bibles with marginal references and other reference Bibles virtually all link this to Isaiah 63:1-6, so Christ Himself will destroy Edom. Obadiah verse 4: ‘Though you soar like the eagle and set your nest among the stars [referring to Edom’s power at the end of the age], I will bring you down from there, says the Lord.’ ‘There shall be no survivor from the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken’ (verse 18). If you study the subject of ‘Babylon’ (Revelation 17 and 18, Isaiah 47, Jeremiah 50 and 51), it clearly refers to the sordid, corrupt anti-Christian money-power so visible today, manipulating politicians and controlling the media. Edom is linked to this Babylon (compare Isaiah 34:5-15 and Isaiah 13:19-22 with Revelation 19:3). Even Yahweh Himself, the God of Israel and Creator of the Universe, ‘hated Esau (Edom)’, a people ‘against whom he has indignation forever’ (Malachi 1:2-4). God Himself is going to destroy this terrible anti-Christian Babylonian money power, as the quoted chapters make clear.

The prophet Ezekiel refers to Idumea (Edom, also referred to as Mount Seir) as taking possession of the land and heritage of Israel and Judah (Ezekiel 35:10, 11, 15; 36:2, 5). After the tribes of Judah and Benjamin were taken into captivity in Babylon, the country was settled by other peoples (Ezra 9:11). When the remnant of Judah and Benjamin returned, there is no record of these others being expelled. By the time of the beginning of the Maccabean period (about 165BC) described in the Old Testament Apocrypha, the Edomites were occupying southern Judah up to Beth-Zur, a mere 15 miles south of Jerusalem (1 Maccabees 4:29).

The Edomite ‘conversion’ clearly opened the way for a virtual takeover along the lines predicted by Ezekiel in chapter 35 and 36:1-5 (“Mount Seir” in chapter 35 is another name for Edom). The Edomite called Antipater became the Procurator of Judea in 47BC. Ten years later his son Herod actually became ‘king of the Jews’, starting an Edomite dynasty which ruled Palestine under the authority of Rome for over a hundred years. How could an Edomite, inveterate enemy of Israel, become king in Jerusalem? Certainly not by himself, without great support from his own constituency.

This situation would in itself have been a stimulus for an influx of population from the arid country of Edom into the more hospitable neighbouring environment of Judea, an influx which would obviously have been encouraged for political reasons by the ruling Herodian dynasty. Edomites would have been appointed to the most influential positions, in order to extend and establish the Edomite grip on the territory and people. Herod became notorious amongst Christians for his ‘massacre of the innocents’, a supernaturally inspired attempt on the life of the infant Christ (Matthew 2:16). Herod’s son Herod Antipas, continuing the work, was responsible for the grisly and appalling murder of John the Baptist (Matthew 14:6-12).

In the New Testament, the English word ‘Jew” is a translation of the Greek Ioudaios (Yehudah-os), a Judean or inhabitant of Judah (Yehudah) – Judea – the former territory of the tribe of Judah (Yehudah), which now contained a substantial percentage of people of Edomite origin who possessed the political power under the aegis of Rome. Christ himself consistently showed a powerful antipathy towards the people that the English New Testament calls Jews, but who were more accurately Judeans, the inhabitants of the Edomite-dominated territory of Judea. Jesus said to the Jews ‘Because you are not sheep of my flock you do not believe’ (John 10:24-27) and ‘I was only sent to the lost sheep of the House of Israel’ (Matthew 15:25). In fact, Christ referred to those ‘Jews’ (people of Judea) ‘who believed in him’, as being ‘of their father the devil’ (John 8: 31,44), while in complete contrast He instructed His disciples – who were from Galilee, not Judea (Acts 1:11) – to pray to ‘our Father who is in heaven’. Was He just suffering from alternating good and bad moods? John the Apostle in his book of Revelations refers to those ‘who say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan’ (2:9), repeated in the following chapter (3:9). Judea and Galilee were two separate states and political entities, as any Bible with maps of the Holy Land in New Testament times will show. Jesus Himself was not a Jew (Judean) living in Judea – he was a Galilean who lived in Galilee (Matthew 26:69, John 7:41). He was a true Israelite of the true tribe of Judah, not of the spurious Edomite Judeans or Jews. He is in fact the true King of the true Israel! He grew up in Nazareth in Galilee. His disciples were fishermen from the Sea of Galilee. Christ visited Jerusalem, but spent most of His life in Galilee. John 7:1 says, ‘After this Jesus stayed in Galilee; He could not stay in Judaea, because the Jews were out to kill him’. His followers were constrained ‘for fear of the Jews’ (John 7:13, 19:38, 20:19). This phrase shows that although there were true Israelite people in Judea, such as Mary and Martha and their brother Lazarus in Bethany, and those who welcomed Him when He entered Jerusalem on a donkey, the name Jew had become almost completely associated with the evil Edomite counterfeit-Israel, ’synagogue of Satan’.

‘Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables. He never spoke to them except in parables’ (Matthew 13:34). Many churches and Sunday schools teach that Jesus used parables to make His teachings clearer. But all four Gospels say exactly the opposite, that the parables were often in a kind of code – the disciples asked Him in private to explain certain parables. When the disciples asked Jesus why He spoke to the crowd in parables, He replied ‘Because the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven are revealed to you, but not revealed to them’ (Matthew 13:10-11, Mark 4:11,12, Luke 8:9, John 12:37+). In the passage in Mark, Jesus says ‘The secret of the kingdom of God is given to you, but to those who are outside everything comes in parables, so that they may see and see again, but not perceive; may hear and hear again, but not understand; otherwise they might be converted and be forgiven’. Luke says Jesus told His disciples, ‘The mysteries of the kingdom of heaven are revealed to you; for the rest there are only parables, so that they may see but not perceive, listen but not understand’. Was Jesus simply concerned with the salvation of all the ‘miserable sinners’? He said, ‘Do not cast your pearls in front of pigs, or they may trample them and turn and tear you to pieces’ (Matthew 7:6). Are these actual pigs and was Jesus simply showing concern about his followers’ jewellery? Who are these swine if not the Jews, who follow the sick teachings of the Talmud, wherein Jesus is insulted in the most depraved manner? Why do Christians disobey Christ in trying to share that which is holy with the antiChristian Jews?

The Jews shouted ‘Crucify Him!’ (John 19:15) and ‘His blood be on us and on our children!’ (Matthew 27:25). Pilate was using irony when he wrote ‘Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews (Greek = Judeans)’ (John 19:19) – i.e.‘the Galilean who was King of the Judeans’, as in ‘Queen Victoria of England, Empress of India’. The spiritual leaders of the Jews were the Pharisees, who unsurprisingly were associated with the (Edomite) Herodians ((Matthew 22:16, Mark 3:6 and 12:13). Jesus utterly condemned the Pharisees as hypocrites, using the word repeatedly (Matthew 15:7, 22:18, 23:13, 15, 23, 25 and 27). He also called them ‘brood (offspring) of vipers’ (Matthew 3:8, 12:34, 23:33). Was this just a loose hyperbolic turn of phrase, like ‘sons of bitches’, or did it embody a real supernatural truth? As is well known, Satan was associated with the idea of serpent.

The Jews of the western world like to portray WASPs (‘white Anglo-Saxon Protestants’) as the archetypal racists, but are adamant that Palestinians born in ‘Israel’ (formerly Palestine) and chased out by the violence and terror-tactics of the Jewish settlers, should not be permitted to return to their homes under any circumstances, although Jewish immigrants from Milwaukee or San Diego or anywhere else (even if atheists) should be given full citizenship and rights. A ‘Jew’ is defined in the Israeli constitution as someone born of a Jewish mother, irrespective of belief. The word does not refer therefore to a person’s religion, but to his or her ancestry or race. The virulent and murderous racism of the Zionist-supporting anti-racists is therefore Pharisee-like in its hypocrisy.

Most churches have no interest at all in the matter of Edom, and for them, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Obadiah and Malachi were effectively wasting their breath. Many churches are not much more than social clubs. They have little interest in making progress in searching for the truth, although Jesus said ‘Seek and you shall find’, and ‘The truth shall set you free’. They have no interest in the statements of the historian Josephus or the details and actions of the Edomite Herodian dynasty. Where Christ Himself referred to those ‘Jews’ (people of Judea) who believed in him, as being of their father the devil (John 8: 31,44) most churches prefer to ignore this. They have no interest in the ethnic affiliations of those behind the Communist anti-Christian revolutionaries. Although Christ said, ‘You shall know them by their fruits’ (Matthew 7:16, 20), these people prefer not to think about the Jewish involvement in Communism (see below) and all the dreadful suffering it produced, not least for Christians, or the terrible culture-destroying anti-Christian output of Jewish-dominated Hollywood. To this degree they are anti-Truth and therefore anti-Christian.

Jesus said ‘The Truth shall set you free.’ These churches are not interested in examining where the truth lies in these matters, believing that the liberal anti-Christian Jewish-controlled media is the best guide on where the truth lies. Although Christ utterly condemned the anti-Christian Edomite Jews, many churches still prefer to consider them to be, of all things, the ‘people of God’! The churches ‘with the benefit of modern advances in ethics and knowledge’ obviously believe that they know better about the Jews and racism than God did all those centuries ago. Perhaps they believe that God, with the benefit of hindsight and advice from modern churchmen and theologians, would not have inspired His prophets to be such profound pro-Israel, anti-Edomite racists (modern ‘Israel’ is not the same as biblical Israel). But the churches of today are unfortunately often almost an integral department of the mega-money-sponsored Babylonian power-structure which discourages the search for and propagation of truth. The establishment churches can be relied upon not to rock the boat. It is customary for the churches to treat the period of the life of Christ as though the people of Judea were uniformly Israelite, but this is most definitely, demonstrably and undeniably not so. This is what the Apostle John had to say about the non-Christian or anti-Christian Jews: ‘Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antiChrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son, has the Father: but whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also’ (1 John 2:22-23). Not all ‘Jews’ (Judeans) were Edomites – the sisters Mary and Martha and their brother Lazarus of Bethany near Jerusalem are examples who were true Israelites. The churches claim that the people that welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem, waving palm branches and crying Hosanna! were the same people as the crowd that bayed for his blood a few days later. This is utterly ridiculous.

It is customary for many churches and Christians to follow the leading of the Babylonian power structure in declaring racism to be wrong, at the same time viewing the Arabs as utterly deplorable for their support for the Palestinians, and the Palestinians, well, they really take the cake in not meekly handing over their country, homes, villages and olive groves to the fundamentally racist and ruthlessly violent settler Jews, supported by their ethnic kin in all the countries of the west where they use all the resources of their tremendous resources of money, media and bought politicians to ‘fight against racism’. Jesus utterly condemned this hypocrisy.

Unfortunately most churches deliberately ignore the parable of the tares or darnel (Matthew 13:24—30, 36-43). This explicitly says that there is a people of God, the wheat, and there is a counterfeit people of God, the ‘tares’. ‘Tares’ refers to ‘one of the most destructive of all weeds’ (botanical name Lolium temulentum). ‘Before it bears fruit Lolium is almost indistinguishable from wheat, amongst which it often grows as a weed. Only when they come into ear can they be distinguished.’ ‘The seeds often harbour seriously poisonous fungus growths that if eaten by humans or animals will cause dizziness and vomiting and sometimes even death’ (W.Walker, All the Plants of the Bible). Jesus said, with regard to determining which people fall into which category, ‘You shall judge them by their fruits’. Jesus said that the tares will be around until the final judgement, when they will be destroyed by burning, literal or metaphorical, in a real holocaust.

These churches also deliberately ignore Christ’s parable of the wicked husbandmen (Matthew 21:33-46), preferring to follow the comfortable teachings of men. It is customary for the churches to proclaim that the Jews with their violently anti-Christian beliefs propounded in the Talmud, are the ‘chosen people of Yahweh, the people of Israel’, in spite of all the evidence concerning Edom and the unambiguous teachings of Christ. The churches, following the wolves in sheeps’ clothing, must stop advancing and helping to propagate anti-Christian non-truths and lies. They must beware of the leaven of the Edomite Pharisees (Matthew 23). They must not be a tacit part of the modern incarnation of the Babylonian empire, otherwise they too will be destroyed by God. The Jewish takeover of Palestine in the last century is not the biblical ‘return’ of true Israel to the Holy Land, but that of a satanic counterfeit. It has shown no signs of true Christian Godliness but rather evil political and military machinations and it is now coming apart at the seams. At the same time the Jewish anti-racist indoctrination of the Christian European nations has reached the point that Europe is being destroyed by large-scale alien anti-European-culture immigration, and these nations are politically unable to protect themselves from this scourge owing to the ever-present Jewish watchdogs from Hell.

Christ accused ‘those Jews who believed in Him’ (note this) of being ‘of their father the devil’, and that ‘(they) prefer to do what their father wants.. He was a murderer (blood-letter) from the beginning, he was never grounded in the truth; there is no truth in him at all.. because he is a liar and the father of lies..’ (John 8:31-44). The Concise Oxford Dictionary (1976) says the verb jew means ‘to cheat’. The Penguin English Dictionary (1965) says jew means ‘to defraud, to cheat’.
