Original Jesus.

See below for teachings of Jesus on end times from AENT - some changes been made in the Greek translations. 

 

When I was a small child the Sunday School lessons about Jesus were full of wonderment.  I was able to learn about Jesus for the very first time.  Was it His love for the little children that drew me to Him?  Or was it hearing about when He walked on the water?  Or how He helped rescue Peter when he tried the same thing?  Or was it how Jesus expressed the care of God for us through the example of how God clothes and cares for even small birds and flowers of the field and all things in nature - and each of us is of far more value to God than they are.  Even the winds and waves obeyed Jesus!  He not only healed the lame, gave sight to the blind, cast out demons, and raised the dead to life, He arose Himself - just as He said He would!   

There are so many reasons to fall in love with Jesus - even in pre-school.  We  sang songs, drew pictures and colored them.  We had a special week  to learn about Him and the love He has for us.  Those were times of wonder and beauty, as I also looked around and pondered the beauty of wildflowers in our lawn and songbirds in the trees - to see the world with the wonderment that God had made each little thing for their own purpose and time and that each person and thing has its place in the vastness of the heavens and earth as created by God. 

We learned of the creation of the world, Adam and Eve, Cain and Able, how evil came upon the earth through belief of Satans lies, how God preserved mankind through Noah and the ark, and the covenant God made to man and the sign of the rainbow.  We also learned about Abraham, Issacc and Jacob, how God did wonderful things through the most dire of curcumstances and raised Joseph up in Egypt to prepare a place for His special people and how God lead them out of captivity to a land of thier own and gave them the law to both preserve them and foretell the very gospel of Jesus Christ.

Then came life and introduction to its trials and problems.  I was taught a number of things that just didn't seem to fit what I had come to see in the truth of Jesus.  People started indoctrination to things that He didn't say, but I accepted these things, as I had no idea how wrong they were, but the Lord purges false beliefs from my heart and mind as I returned to seek the Orginal Jesus - the real doctrine of Jesus Christ.  It is just as He said:  "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." Freedom in Christ is contingent upon abiding in His word.

In 2010 we find ourselves in a world torn apart by strife and all manners of evil.  We can turn on the television or go on the internet and see how evil has impacted the beauty of the earth which God made.  Thankfully I can walk outside and see the sun still shines and just yesterday witnessed one of the most magnificent double rainbows I've ever seen.  The birds still sing, the flowers still bloom, but there is a darkness  coming upon mankind around the entire earth - the darkness and evil of  evil actions of certain men towards others, and primarily against God (Psalm 2).    For all the troubles we can see, there is something else to look for. Our eyes should not be darkness, but full of light.  Jesus told us what would come upon the world in the latter times and admonished that our hearts not be troubled or fearful.  Rather than fear, Jesus encouraged us to look up to the heavens because our salvation draws near.

Who can we really count on to tell us the whole truth?

Church is where we should be able to place our trust, second only to the Lord Himself.  But then you have to look at what your church is teaching to see if they are telling you the truth  - the whole truth - the ORIGINAL JESUS   If you've read the previous pages on this web site you should have adequate knowledge and understanding that according to Jesus, faith is more than profession of the mouth - it is found in willingly seeking out His words to do what He taught in your own life as He gives opportunity to do so.  It is for those good works that we have been created to give our light and testimony to the world.  Jesus went throughout Israel teaching what He called the gospel of the kingdom and said that this gospel must be preached to the ends of the earth to each nation and tongue.  The gospel message is not merely that Jesus died on the cross and rose again, the gospel message is the message Jesus taught, and that we need to listen because He proved who He was by not only dieing for us, but also resurrecting from the dead - just as He said He would.

 

John 14:23-31:

 

"If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.  He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.

 These things I have spoken to you while being present wtih you.  But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring your remembrance all things that I said to you.  Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  You have heard Me say to you, 'I am going away and coming back to you.'  If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, 'I am going to the Father,' for My Father is greater than I.

And now I have told you before it comes, that when it  does come to pass, you may believe.  I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.  But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment- so I do.  Arise, let us go from here."

Church history is one of the most important and telling stories of the nature of man VS the nature that God created him to be.  Many have noted that where a religious movement branches from it's faith parent it pretty much stays were it branched from - holding similar doctrine to be the limit of what is 'true' or acceptable.' 

 

These are a few conclusions I've reached so far, but of course we need to make sure what we believe is true, and I make no claim to being infallible.

1.  The 'rock' that the Church is founded upon is the teachings of Jesus Christ - not Peter, nor any 'latter day' prophet, as Jesus Christ is both 'that Prophet' of Acts 3:22,23 and living today.  If we spent time doing what He said, we would come to recognize that the prophets many follow today have lead them away from the principle of 'abiding' in His words that lead to eternal life.  In fact, one can show that they each taught something quite at odds with what Jesus Christ declared to be the truth.  If you have any questions or dispute with this, feel free to email me and we can discuss those specifics.

2.  The principle of 'the sum of Thy word is truth' is still extant, and everlasting - thereby one cannot pretend that anything not 'authorized' in the New Testament' is prohibited.  This is what is called 'an argument from silence' or 'straw man argument', that pretends to set up a fake standard that is no standard at all, in hopes to divide or deceive from the real and whole truth of God and the fact that He has told us what is good and right and true - and this principle is found nowhere in the doctrine or teachings of the Lord.

3.  Grace is not free, nor is it alone.  We are called to give up our life and submit to His will through abiding in His word - what He said are the Commandments of God and the doctrine of God.  (My doctrine is not mine, but His who sent Me.)  If grace is alone, there is no need to do whatever He said, as they will also claim Jesus did all the work on the cross necessary for us to be saved and that we cannot add to that in any way, and if we believe we have to do anything, then we have fallen from grace.  This is in abject rejection of what Jesus taught -that we are to be hearers and doers of what He commanded and taught.  Thereby, since it is in opposition to His word, the 'once for all' delivered truth and grace of God, it is no gospel at all, but merely a story that people wish were true.  As with the previous comment - if you have points or disagreement - please do email.

In the principle of His word, that we actually are His disciples, let's return to our first love, in that we are His disciples indeed.  When we seek the kingdom of God first, the rest of things will start to come into the place they should be.  It is a narrow pathway, but the depths of His grace and truth should have enough room for everyone who repents to actually do what He said - to live as He did - and thereby come to know God and eternal life - Christ in us, our hope of glory.  He said His words are spirit and life, but there are some who do not believe.  When we do believe and start growing in the faith to do whatsoever He commanded from the beginning, in that sense those words bring His spirit into our hearts and minds, and it will be that we 'have the mind of Christ' in our mind, to be careful to observe and do the will of God as we follow in His footsteps and viewpoints of life as He gave them.  As God said in Ezekiel 36, He gives His Spirit to write His instructions on our hearts so we will be drawn to be careful to keep His word from our heart.

 

Since many are looking to the signs of the times and the end time, and what Y'shua said is of primary interest, the following is provided from the AENT.  For the careful student there are some things in this older account that are not in the Greek text or translations from the Greek that may be helpful for the students of prophecy.  Note that He said all things had to be fulfilled.  There are a number of teachings in the gospels that directly relate to the 'latter days' or 'Day of the LORD' and such, so there is far more to investigate.  Also note places in the OT where God declared certain things will take place  that as of yet have not.  Due to the value of His word, it would be good for each student of His word to have their own copy of the AENT, but this is provided to give an example of its value.  "And winters will be severe" is but one thing that didn't come through the Greek translations.  Also note 'this tribe'.   

 Matthew 24, AENT (Aramaic English New Testament, Netzari Press LLC, 2010)

And Y'shua went out of the temple to depart, and his disciples drew near and were showing him the construction of the temple.  But he said to them, "Behold, don't you see all these things?  Truly I say to you, nothing will be spared.  Not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down."  And while Y'shua was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples drew near and were saying among themselves and to him, "Tell us when these things will be and what is the sign of your coming and the end of the world."  Y'shua answered and said to them, "Beware, let no man deceive you.  For many will come in my name and will say that I am the Mashiyach.  And many they will deceive.  For you are bound to hear of revolutions and rumor of wars.  Watch out and do not be distrurbed, for it is necessary that all these things happen, but it is not yet the end.  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes in different places.  But all these things are only the beginning of sorrows.  Then they will deliver to afflisctions and they will kill you and you will be hated by all nations because of my name.  Then many will stumble and will hate one another and will betray one another.  And many false prophets will arise and deceive many.  And because of the growth of iniquity, the love of many will grow cold.  But whoever has patience until the end, he will have life.  And this Good News of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.  And when you see the sign of uncleanness and desolation, that was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, which will stand in the Set Apart place.  He that reads, let him understand.  Then those who are in Yehuda, let them flee to the mountain.  And he who is on the roof, let him not come down to take that which is in his house.  And he who is in the field, let him not come down to take that which is in his house.  And he who is in the field, let him not turn back to take back his clothes.  And woe to the pregnant and to those who are nursing in those days.  And pray that your flight will not be in winter, nor on the Shabbat.  For then will be great sufferieng such as has not been from the beginning of the world until the present, nor will ever be again.  And if those days were not shortenend, not any flesh would live, but because of the chosen, those days will be shortened.  If anyone should say to you then, behold the Messiah is here or there, do not believe it.  For false Messiahs and lying prophets will arise and they will produce signs and great wonders in order to deceive if possible even the chosen.  Behold, I have told you beforehand.  (Jeremiah 22:5; Psalm 118:26; Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12:11; Joel 2:2; Daniel 12:1)

Therefore, if they say to you, 'Behold, he is in the wildreness,' do not go out.  Or, 'Behold, he is in the inner chamber,' do not believe it.  For as the sunshine comes out from the East and is seen even in the West, thus will be the coming  of the Son of man.  Wherever the carcass is, there will the eagles gather.  And immediately after the suffereing of those days, the sun will be darkened and the moon will not shine its light.  And the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken.  And then will be seen the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then all the tribes of the land mourn, when they will see the the Son of man who comes upon the clouds of heaven with great power and glory.  And he will send his Messengers with a large trumpet, and they will gather  his chosen ones from the four winds from one end of heaven to the other.  Now from the fig tree learn a parable.  As soon as its branches  become tender and bring forth its leaves, you know that summer has arrived.  Thus also when you have seen all thses things, know that it has arrived at the door.  Truly I say to you, that this tribe will not pass until all these things happen.  Heaven and earth may pass, but my word will not pass until all these things happen.  Heaven and earth may pass, but my wrod will not pass until all these things happen.  About the day and about the hour no man knows, not even the Messengers of hearven, but the Father alone.  And as in the days of Nukh, this will be the coming of the Son of man.  For as they were before the deluge, eating and drinking and taking women and giving them in marriage to men up to the day that Nukh entered into the ark.  And they did not know until the deluge came and took them all, thus will be the coming of the Son of man.  Then two men will be will be in the field, one will be taken and one will be left.  And two women will be grinding at the mill.  One will be taken and one will be left.  Therefore be alert, because you do not know in what hour your Master will come.  And know this, that if the master of the house had known, he would not have allowed his house to be plundered.  Because of this also, you should be prepared, because in an hour that you do not expect, the Son of man will come.  Then who is the faithful and wise servant whom his master has appointed over his household to give them food in due time.  That servant is blessed when his master comes and finds him doing thus.  I say truly to you, that he will appoint him over all that he owns.  But if a servant being evil in his heart says that "My master will be delayed in coming."  And begins to beat his fellow-servants and to eat and drink with drunkards.  The master of that servant will come in a day that he does not know.  And he will cut him in two and give him his lot among the hypocrites, and there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

(Hosea 8; Jeremiah 4:7-13; Ezekiel 1:10; 10:14; Isaiah 13:10; Ezekiel 32:7; Joel 2:10; 3:4;(2:31) 4:15 (3:15): Isaiah 34:4; Haggai 2: 6, 21;; Zechariah 12:10, 14; Daniel 7: 13,14; Great Shofar in Revelation; Isaiah 27:13; Deu. 30:4; Jeremiah 31: 7-12; Zech 2:6; 10: 7-12;  The fruit of the fig tree symbolizes judgment upon the false judges of Israel, the counterfiet Sanhedrin

 

Luke 21;  And Y'shua stared at the rich men who were casting their offerings into the treasury.  And he also say a certain poor widow who cast in two small coins.  And he said, "Truly I say to you that this poor widow has cast in more than everyone.  For all of them have cast into the house of offering of Elohim from what was in excess to them, but this one from her poverty.  She has cast in all that she had owned."  And whole some were speaking about the temple, that it was adorned with beautiful stones and with offerings, Y'ehua said to them, "These things that you see, the days will come in which not one stone will be spared.  There will not be one stone upon another that is not pulled down."  And they were asking him and said, "Teacher, when will these things be?" And, "What is the sign when these things are near to happening?"  But he said to them, "See to it that you are not deceived.  For many will come in my name and will say that I am the Messiah!  And, 'The time is near!'  But do not go and follow after them.  And when you hear of wars and revolutions, do not have fear, for they are necessary first to happen, but the end has not yet arrived.  For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be severe earthquakes from place to place and famine and plagues.  And there will be fears and terrors and great signs will be seen from Heaven.  And the winters will be severe.  But before these things, they will they will lay hands upon you and persecute you.  And they will deliver you to the assemblies and to the prisons.  And they will bring you before kings and governors because of my name.  But it will be to you for a testimony.  But place it in your heats that you should not try to learn how to answer.  For I will give you a mouth and wisdom so that all your enemies will not be able to stand against it.  And your parents and your brothers and your relatives and your friends will betray you.  And they will kill some of you.  Then you will be hated by all men because of my name.  Yet not a strand of hair from your head will perish.  And by your patience you will gain your souls.  And when you see that an army has surrounded Urishlim, then know that its destruction has drawn near to it.  Then those who are in Yehuda, let them flee to the mountains.  And those who are within it, let them flee.  And those in the villages, let them not enter into it.  Because these are the days of vengeance that might be fulfilled everything that is written.  But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing in those days!  For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people.  And they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led away to every land.  And Urishlim will be trampled by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.  And there will be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars.  And on earth, distress of the nations and confusion from the roaring of the sound of the sea.  And upheaval that casts out life from men, because of fear of what is about to come upon the earth.  And the powers of heaven will be shaken.  And then they will see the Son of man who will come in the clouds with much power and great glory.  But when these things begin to happen, have courage and lift up your heads, because your salvation draws near."  And he was speaking a parable to them, "Look at the fig tree, and all the t4rees.  When they bud, you understand immediately from them that summer draws near.  Likewise, also when you see these things  happening, know that the Kingdom of Elohim is near.  Truly I say to you that this tribe will not pass until all these things occur.  Heaven and earth will pass away, yet my words will not pass away.  But beware in yourselves that your hearts never become heavy by extravagance and by drunkenness and by distress of the world, and that day should come suddenly upon you.  For like a snare  it will entrap all those who dwell upon the face of all the earth.  Therefore, be watchful at all times and pray that you are worthy to escape from these things that are about to happen, and that you stand before the Son of man."  And during the day he would teach in the temple, and during the night he would go out and lodge in the mountain that is called the House of Olives.  And all the people were coming early to him at the temple to hear his word.

Haggai 2:6,21; Daniel 7:13,14; 'tribe' is Israel of Elohim, the 'Household of Faith'

 

Mark 13.  Notes on Daniel differ Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12:11.  Recommend checking all the references vs 14; "And when you see that which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, the sign of unclean desolation that was standing where it should not be, let him who reads understand"  Footnote 58 says: 'Fulfilled when the Romans put their Pagan ensigns and altars where the Temple formerly stood, according to historian Josephus.'
