Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:11-16
It's Not Jews and Gentiles
Ephesians 2 is a chapter that seems to be a great mystery to almost every preacher in the country. They constantly miss that the two entities talked about in this chapter are not “Jews and Gentiles” but the House of Judah and the House of Israel respectfully. That is the “US.”
The Old Testament informs us that the House of Israel, after separating from the House of Judah, became a people who got farther and farther away from keeping God’s laws that they became outright Baal worshippers. Elijah was sent to the House of Israel to demonstrate to them who their God really was; it wasn’t Baal. Elijah had a contest between the two to show them that their God was the God who brought them out of Egypt.
God won; the priests of Baal were murdered; but the House of Israel kept on worshipping the false god. Finally, God had to obey His own law that said that the House of Israel would be taken into captivity and would be a nation no more.
So, at the time of Jesus’ birth; we have this situation:
The House of Judah was the only Israelites who were not in a state of annulment from the covenant of God. The House of Israel was at a time far off, but by the blood of Jesus Christ is made near again—His death and resurrection put them back in the covenant. They are reconciled with God and with the House of Judah.
The whole house of Israel had married God at Mount Sinai. God was their King. After many years, Israel rejected this Theocracy. They became a monarchy instead.
Eventually, the two Houses separated. The House of Judah had a few good kings; the House of Israel; each succeeding king become worse than the previous one. They became Baal worshippers; until they were finally divorced by God.
This is what the Apostle Paul is referring to in Ephesians 2. They, the House of Israel, were:
- Alienated from the civic life of Israel,
- Strangers of the covenant of the promise,
- Having no hope,
- In the Society without their own God, and
- Were cut off from the Abrahamic covenant.
This is where the Judeo-Christian has it mixed-up and identifies the wrong people with the wrong circumstance. They are about 700 years behind the times. They say that the Jews rejected Christ, and as a result were put in a biblical parenthesis cut off from the covenant of God. But most of them fail to say that the Jews plotted and executed the murder of Jesus Christ.
But it was the House of Israel that was put out of the covenant that God had made with Abraham. And there was nothing that they could do to get back in (they had no hope). It happened around 700 BC. The Jews were never in the covenant at all, at any time; except for Esau who despised and lost it forever when he married interracially with the Hittite/Canaanites.
Only God could let the House of Israel back in the covenant for it was only He that walked between the slain animals with Abram. Abram was in a deep sleep. God forgave His people and broke down the middle wall of partition that was between the two Houses for centuries. It was the ordinances of the Tabernacle/Temple and animal sacrifices that were put away; for Jesus Christ fulfilled the types. It was both Houses that the blood applied; the animal sacrifices were now fulfilled. The House of Israel never worshipped at the Temple at Jerusalem; instead, they built two false Temples.
Judeo-Christianity is Wrong
Is there a preacher in Judeo-Christianity that knows that the Jews are not Israelites? Look what Texe Marrs says about these verses which are taken from an article found on his website, entitled; “One Jesus, One Nation, One Seed, One People”:
“Christians are ‘New Creations,’ believers in ‘spirit and in truth’ (John 3:3). Jews and Gentiles alike can be and are Christians. God discerns the heart and not the outward, fleshly appearance. Paul, himself a Jew, told Gentiles and Jews that Jesus had broken down the ‘middle wall of partition’ between Jew and Gentile and made of all one nation, which he called, the ‘commonwealth of Israel.’
Yes, we are all one. We are a united Holy Nation. But throughout the centuries, Satan has attempted to continue a division and drive a wedge between Gentiles and Jews.
Jesus prophesied in Matthew 23 and 24 that because of unbelief on their part, the physical nation called Israel was finished. He stated: ‘Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.’
The satanic Jews have been able over the past 120 years to convince a great number of Christians” [including preachers] “that the Bible is incorrect and that Jesus lied when he said, ‘Your house is left unto you desolate.’
These satanic Jews, as a whole, have continued to divide themselves from others. For some 2,000 years they have tried to maintain the dead Old Covenant. To this day, the Jews continue their hatred and strife against Christians and against Jesus Christ. However, a ‘remnant,’ [of Jews] believed and was saved; being grafted back into the olive tree of life.”
Texe says that a remnant of the Jews was saved; while the nation of “Israel” was made desolate. He even says that the Apostle Paul was a Jew. But wait a minute.
The Apostle Paul was a believer of the Jew’s religion in his younger years; which he later renounced. Paul was actually a Pharisee; which were mainly Jews at the time. But there were a few Israelites who were still Pharisees.
The Jews lived in Seir until they were defeated in war by the House of Judah. About 100 BC, after the military defeat by the Israelites, the Edomites [Jews] were forced to either die or follow the Israelite’s God impossibility for them]. After many years the land of Judah was occupied by mainly Israelites of Judah, Benjamin and Levi and Jews (who were descended from the Canaanites).
The Jews took control of the land of Judah, just as they have in America. The King was a Jew, most of the Pharisees were Jews, most, if not all, the money changers were Jews, the majority of Sadducees were Jews, the Sanhedrin were mostly Canaanite/Jews and many of the other government jobs were held by Jews.
Since the Jews know that the tribe of Judah, through David, contains the promise of the scepter (rulership), the Jews tell the lie that they are descended from this particular tribe only: the tribe of Judah. And this is the area where the majority of them lived; Jerusalem and the surrounding area; the same area where Judah dwelt. So, it kind of makes some sense; although it is dead wrong.
But Paul, like 11 of the other 12 apostles, was from the tribe of Benjamin, not Judah. Most of the Benjaminites lived in Galilee, not in Judah. Notice what the New Testament tells us: “I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin” Romans 11:1.
But the Jews themselves tell who they are descended from: The Jewish Encyclopedia says that they are descended from Esau and his two Canaanite wives. Later in history, over 90% of the Jews are descended from Ashkenazi, a descendant of Japheth.
And there were Jews who were the descendants of Shelah [son of Judah and a Canaanite wife] and other mongrel offspring of Canaanites with Israelites. There is no recorded history of any Canaanite or Jew ever being in the covenant between God and Abraham; for they are mongrels. God had warned Israel not to marry anyone from the Canaanite lineage.
Esau was in that covenant, but he despised it. He sold it to his younger twin brother for a bowl of red soup. Afterwards, Esau said that he would kill his brother Jacob, because of the covenant that Esau had despised.
But Texe totally ignores this information. He says that [ALL] Jews are Israelites. And that the Apostle Paul, who also he says was a Jew, said that both Jew and Gentile are made one after the middle wall of partition had been torn down by Jesus. By saying Jews and Gentiles, Texe means all peoples (races) on the earth.
Jews mean all of Israel and Gentiles mean everyone else except Jews. This is the mistake that deceives practically all Judeo-Christians. There is nothing mentioned that the Jews are descended from the miscegenated offspring with Canaanites women with Esau, Shelah, other Israelites, and the Ashkenazim; none at all. They are deceived when they are told that they are descended from either all the tribes of Israel or the tribe of Judah.
And he doesn’t mention that the Jews have their differences as well. There are Sephardic Jews, Ashkenazi Jews, Hasidic Jews, Reformed Jews, Black Jews, etc. that have different beliefs and fight amongst each other. All these are Israelites? No, none of them are.
Have you ever thought that most races outside of Israel didn’t know anything about the animal sacrifices or Temple laws that they were supposed to keep? So how could the commandments relating to these ordinances being abolished affect the two? But it would affect the House of Judah and the House of Israel; for the commandments applied to them both.
The animal sacrifices put off the sins of the Israelites for one year. The animals had to be sacrificed each year. Only Israel were given these commandments; the other races were not. Why were the commandments of these ordinances abolished? Because Jesus Christ fulfilled them. Now tell me…who did He put away the sins of … His people? ... or the sins of all the races?
The Jews were gathered in Jerusalem in 70 AD when the Romans came to fight against them. The true Israelites left, in a very unusual situation: The Roman army pulled out of their attack on Jerusalem for no apparent reason and rested for a couple of days. This was the sign for the Israelites to escape—and they did.
The Jews were left; about 1 million of them. They were divided into several factions. One faction, who wanted their kin to fight to the death, set fire to the food supply in the city. They soon began killing each other. When the battle was over; Jerusalem was in shambles, the Temple was destroyed and about 1 million Jews died.
Do you understand that the Temple that once was God’s House, was destroyed? It hasn’t been rebuilt in Jerusalem in almost 2,000 years. That is another reason the ordinances of the Temple and animal sacrifices were abolished at the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ—because they were not needed anymore.
The House of Israel hadn’t used the Temple in its entire history. The Temple had been completed during the reign of Solomon, the son of King David. Shortly after its dedication, about 13 years, the House of Israel seceded from the House of Judah and forbid its citizens from ever worshipping in the Temple in Jerusalem; which was located in their enemy’s [House of Judah’s] land.
And what benefit are the animal sacrifices: for they had been supplanted by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. There was no need of an inferior animal for the sacrifice of Israel’s yearly sins after the covenant people had received eternal forgiveness for all their sins.
Texe omits any discussion about the House of Israel being the one that Ephesians 2 is talking about; along with their Israelite neighbor to the south: the House of Judah. He wrongly explains it as being “Jews and Gentiles.”
To sum it up, we can say that: The word “Jew” is now a term used to refer to a group of people who today claim to be the exclusive descendants of all of Israel. It is a shortened form of “Judean,” which is how Strong’s Concordance #G2453, “Ioudaios,” should be translated. Confusion arises because this group referred to as “Jews” today claims that the terms “Jew” and Israel are synonymous.
But Judean refers to those of the land of Judea, descendants of the Southern Kingdom of Judah, or those from the tribe of Judah.
Israel, the name God gave to the patriarch Jacob, refers either to the whole House of Israel or the Northern Kingdom.
The patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, cannot be referred to as “Jews” or Judeans because ancestors are not named by their descendants.
Even at the destruction of Judea and the temple by the Romans in 70 AD, the Edomite Jews (called Idumeans) purposely wreaked havoc on the rest of the Judean inhabitants who had not escaped out of Judea. Josephus records the history of what happened:
“…nor did the Idumeans (Edomite Jews) spare anybody; for they are naturally a barbarous and bloody nation…And now the outer temple was all of it overflowed with blood; and that day as it came on, saw eight thousand five hundred dead bodies there…But the rage of the Idumeans was not satiated by these slaughters; but they now betook themselves to the city, and plundered every house, and slew everyone they met” Wars of the Jews, Book IV, Chapter V, Sections 1, 2.
Throughout the centuries, beginning with Jacob; Esau/Edom hated Israel. And God hated Esau, but loved Jacob.
But what happened to the Jewish people after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD? The Jewish survivors were scattered throughout most of the world. The Khazarian Empire was located in the southern steppes of Russia. Other Jews had settled in this area before the people known in history as the Khazars occupied it. These Jews could have very well planted the seeds of Judaism for later Khazarian conversion.
Even after the Khazars occupied it, other Jews sought out refuge among the Khazarian people. These Jews were located in the Byzantine Empire and were under “anti-Jewish policies” that “forced many Jews to flee to less dangerous lands such as Khazaria” (The Jews of Khazaria, p. 88) in the eighth and ninth centuries. These Jews were welcomed by the ruler of the Khazars.
The Jews for almost 2,000 years were a people without a country. They lived in many of the European countries as well as Brazil, Mexico, United States, Jamaica, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.
Most European countries from time to time kicked the Jews out of their country; some did it as many as three times. For example, England expelled them from 1290 to 1660; a period of 370 years.
In the United States the first Jews (twenty-three in total) arrived in Amsterdam (New York City) in 1654. By 1816, Charleston, South Carolina had the largest Jewish population of any city in the United States. Between 1881 and 1924 over 2,000,000 Jews would immigrate to the United States when the Jews began their Communists uprising in Russia.
The United States decided to get rid of their form of government by forming a new constitution. The constitution was ratified in 1789 and their first president was elected. In the year:
1776: Declaration of Independence
1777: Articles of Confederation written
1777/1778: France recognizes United States Independence
1781: British surrender at Yorktown, Virginia
1783: Treaty of Paris signed
1787: Constitutional Convention
1789: United States Constitution in effect
1789: French Revolution begins
1803: Napoleon sells Louisiana Purchase to the United States for money to fight his wars
1799-1804: Napoleon seizes power in a coup d’etat, he crowned himself emperor with crown from the pope in 1804
1804: Civil Code enacted by Napoleon
1806: Grand Sanhedrin reunited
1796-1815: Napoleon fought wars against most of Europe; including Italy, Austria, the Netherlands, England, and also fought in Egypt, Syria, Malta, Russia, and the present day Israel
One of the many contributions that Napoleon has made to improve the quality of life of the people (and perhaps one of his most important and lasting one) was his Civil Code. He felt a personal responsibility for its realization.
This at a time in history when discrimination was rampant. It was then that Napoleon decided to liberate and offer Liberty, Equality and Fraternity to Jews, Protestants and Free Masons. He also opened the churches that were closed for years.
The Civil Code of 1804 was to grant religious freedom to all of them. At that time, there were about 480,000 Calvinists and 200,000 Lutherans and 40,000 Jews living in France.
In 1804, Napoleon arranged for the public regulation of the Protestant communities and then decided that the State would assume the responsibility for the salaries of their pastors. Napoleon was the first leader in Europe to grant liberty, equality and fraternity to all religions; Napoleon is granting liberty to the Jews.
The French Revolution began at the same year that George Washington first took office as the President of the new nation under the Constitution. In France, Napoleon capitalized on the situation in order to dominate the new ruling Consulate by creating a constitution which bound his interest to many of the most powerful people in France: The landowners. He was then able to use this to leverage his support into being declared Emperor.
Napoleon was the first leader in Europe to grant liberty, equality and fraternity to all religions. It is significant that this is the original masonic slogan: “liberty, equality, fraternity.” Many of the American revolutionary leaders of 1776 were Freemasons and even more alarmingly, many of the principal political actors of the French Revolution were prominent French Freemasons. Napoleon was possibly one too.
In 1789, the year of the outbreak of the French Revolution, Catholicism was the official religion of the French State. The French Catholic church recognized the authority of the pope as head of the Roman Catholic Church but had negotiated certain liberties that privilege the authority of the French monarch, giving it a distinct national identity characteristic by considerable autonomy. France’s population of 28 million was almost entirely Catholic, with full membership of the state denied to Protestant and Jewish minorities.
Napoleon was the only government leader that gave Jews equality when most other nations kept them in bondage. He also abolished the special taxes on Jews in Germany and gave them, for the very first time, civic and political equality. When strong opposition in France manifested itself, Napoleon stood firm in his support of Jewish equality.
When Napoleon came to power, he did not liberate the Jews for political reasons because there were not much more than 40,000 in all of France, and they were living in various provinces. The province where Jews were most persecuted was Alsace, where half of the Jewish population of France was living. In Paris, there were approximately 1,000 Jews. They were excluded from doing business, excluded from government positions and from the purchase of property.
Although there was tremendous opposition by the anti-jewish segment of the population. Many of them knew and believe the evilness of the Canaanites/Jews. They were aware of their specialization in usury, magic, sorcery, fortune telling, astrology, potions and drugs, poisons, alchemy, amulets, incantations and curses, aphrodisiacs and cosmetics. All of these were against God’s law.
One of the leading Jewish citizens, Isaac Cerf-Berr, presented to Minister Portalis, a specific plan that would ensure Jewish integration into the population. The plan was brought to Napoleon at his camp in Boulogne in 1805. He approved it and instructed Portalis to implement it as quickly as possible.
As far as the Jews are concerned, it can hardly be doubted that Napoleon’s laws regulating the life of the French-Jewish communities were a turning point in their development in modern free-society.
One hundred and eleven representatives of the Jewish community, representing all the departments of France and Northern Italy met at City Hall. Napoleon had requested answers to accusations made against the Jews so he could understand their position clearly. The reunion of so many Jews from the different parts of France represented the renewal of the famous “Sanhedrin” which ruled Israel before Jesus Christ’s ministry.
The Grand Sanhedrin, was the Supreme Assembly of the Jewish nation, and had not been reunited for 18 centuries. Napoleon had the idea of assembling the principal Jewish notables of all of Europe, in order to permit them to solve the problems that concerned him. Convened by decree on the 23rd of August 1806, the Grand Sanhedrin met from the 9th of February to the 9th of March 1807. At the time of their last reunion, Napoleon was proclaimed the modern “Cyrus.” Napoleon was warmly and unanimously praised.
The Sanhedrin continued to be an important force for the Jewish population who lived in Israel until 70 AD when the Roman General Titus destroyed Jerusalem. The Sanhedrin replaced the monarchy for the Jews in those days and it was their authority.
Napoleon was quoted as saying:
“This is not the way to solve the Jewish question. I will never accept any proposals that will obligate the Jewish people to leave France, because to me the Jews are the same as any other citizen in our country. It takes weakness to chase them out of the country, but it takes strength to assimilate them.”
The decree issued on the 30th of May 1806 requested that a Special Assembly of Jewish leaders and Rabbis, from all of the French departments, would meet in Paris to discuss all outstanding matters, including answering questions dealing with accusations against the Jews made by the faithful anti-Jewish churches.
It was on the 23rd of July 1806, when all of these representatives met in Paris, at which time Napoleon stated: “My desire is to make Jews equal citizens in France, have a conciliation between their religion and their responsibilities in becoming French, and to answer all the accusations made against them. I want all people living in France to be equal citizens and benefit from our laws.”
The “liberator of Italy” abolished the Laws of the Inquisition, and the Jews felt free at last.
When the French troops were in Palestine, and besieging the city of Acre, Napoleon had already prepared a Proclamation making Palestine an independent Jewish state. He felt confident that he could occupy Acre and the following days he would enter Jerusalem and from Jerusalem he would issue his proclamation. He was unable to realize this project because of the intervention of the British.
This proclamation was printed and dated the 20th of April 1799, but his unsuccessful attempt to capture Acre prevented it from being issued. The Jews had to wait more than 150 years before their state was proclaimed.
The proclamation however did bear fruit. It was a precursor to Zionism, heightening awareness of the cause of Jewish statehood. The ideas Napoleon expressed found the admiration of many who saw Napoleon’s gestures as a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, which foretells of the restoration of the Jews to their land. The idea drew many adherents, especially in England.
One hundred and eighteen years later, the British would issue the “Balfour” declaration which called for a Jewish homeland and ultimately - 31 years later in 1948 - Israeli would be recognized as a sovereign state by popular vote in the United Nations General Assembly. Perhaps it can be said that Napoleon’s premature announcement on that first day of Passover in 1799 played an important role in the creation of the state of Israeli.
On the 16th of August, 1800, Napoleon declared: “If I governed a nation of Jews, I should reestablish the Temple of Solomon.” On the 10th of November 1816, Dr. O'Meara (who was Napoleon’s personal physician at the time) asked the Emperor point blank as to why he was encouraging and supporting the Jews.
The Emperor Napoleon replied:
“My primary desire was to liberate the Jews and make them full citizens. I wanted to confer upon them all the legal rights of equality, liberty and fraternity as was enjoyed by the Catholics and Protestants. It is my wish that the Jews be treated like brothers as if we were all part of Judaism.[Beginning of Judeo-Christianity?]
As an added benefit, I thought that this would bring to France many riches because the Jews are numerous and they would come in large numbers to our country where they would enjoy more privileges than in any other nation. Without the events of 1814, most of the Jews of Europe would have come to France where equality, fraternity and liberty awaited them and where they can serve the country like everyone else.”
During the different periods of Napoleon’s career, his sympathy for the Jews was clearly noted. He did everything he could to assure that the Jews were treated on an equal basis as Catholics and Protestants.
Napoleon’s religious opinions were the height of modern philosophy; he was completely given to tolerance. Everywhere that Napoleon went, he led tolerance by the hand; everywhere that he found several religions, he ended the domination by which one took precedence over the others. “Faith,” Napoleon would say, “is beyond the reach of the law. It is the most personal possession of man, and no one has the right to demand and account for it.”
He wanted the Jews to have their Jerusalem in France.
Illuminati Jews have waged a covert war against man and God for several millennia. They were hindered up till the time of Napoleon, as Judaism was regarded as a satanic cult, and Jews were considered agents of the devil.
Christians believed that Jews both hated them and conspired to destroy Christendom. They believed the long-awaited Jewish “Messiah” was in fact the Antichrist.
This conspiracy is the real history of the world, the real cause of war and depression. Society has been subverted, and the lies are heard constantly. The Cabalist Conspiracy is on the cusp of success. God has:
- Been banished from public life,
- Illuminati Jews control the mass media and can deceive and degrade the masses,
- Entertainment is an orgy of pornography, obscenity, propaganda, violence and Satanism.
Illuminati Jews and Masons that were behind feminism are responsible for the debauchery of Western women. They are behind the promotion of homosexuality and same-sex marriages designed to destroy marriage and family.
They were at the forefront of sexual liberation, pornography and abortion. The mass media is obsessed with sex. It has a fawning fetish for fertile females, and even children aren’t safe. The stock market is a giant casino with millions day trading.
Christianity has been Judaized, concerned with “social change” (the Satanist agenda) rather than spiritual development and salvation. Christian Zionists and politicians are pledged to the Zionist rogue state.
The Illuminati are destabilizing the Third World using charities to “empower” females to reject marriage. Donors are invited to “become an “agent of change” which is code for New World Order.
They want girls to be “educated” i.e. indoctrinated, as in the West. In general, they are feminizing the world, making women and their concerns central. The people are lost and increasingly desperate.
Nehemiah 9:2 it says that: “All Israel separated themselves from all STRANGERS, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.”
Who were the strangers that Israel separated themselves from? The answer is found in Nehemiah 13:3; where it confirms this separation was from alien strangers:
“Now it came to pass when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel, all the mixed multitude.”
The mixed multitude (mongrel seed) was always a SNARE to Israel. And they still are.
To be continued.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel.
