Introduction: Take Heed That No Man Deceive
“This Gospel of the Kingdom”
John 7:16,17; "My doctrine is not Mine, but His who
sent Me. If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I
speak on My own authority."
[Doctrine, teaching and instruction have the same basic meaning. The authority of
Yahshua’s (Jesus’) doctrine is based on the Instructions in Righteousness, the Everlasting Covenant, and the promises,
precepts and judgments of God in the Old Testament - the accepted words of God in the Torah, Psalms and Prophets. Close
examination of the doctrine Jesus (Yahshua) taught will show they are in accord with the instructions of God therein, and
do not lead away from anything God had commanded as the moral standards of righteousness that He expects from mankind.
The Doctrine of Christ reveals the fullness of the grace and truth of God.]
Matthew 5: 17-20; “Do not think that I come to destroy the
Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For assuredly I say to you till heaven and earth
pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the Law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks
one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does
and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you that unless your righteousness
exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will be no means enter the kingdom of heaven.”
of the Testament of God are found to be fulfilled by Jesus Christ (Master Yahshua), that doesn’t cause them to be discarded,
as they are the proof of who He is – neither does His revealing the fullness of the instruction and commandments of
God cause any word of God to then be cast aside – the words of God are confirmed – this is largely what “fulfilled”
means. To have missed the need for keeping even the ‘least’ of the commandments was not equated to have
been excluded from the kingdom of Heaven – but where do we find those that He “never” knew? Those
who were lawless – who were without or against Torah. (Greek ‘anomia')]
John 8:12; "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall
not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." (Psalm 119:105; “Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light
unto my path”)
John 8: 31,32; "If you abide in
My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
(“Sanctify them by Thy truth, Thy word is truth.”)
Matthew 7:24-27; "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man
who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house;
and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them,
will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew, and
beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."
John 15:9-15; "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments,
you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken
to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another
as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. You are My
friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master
is doing, but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you."
John 14:23,24; "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."
Matthew 28: 18-20; “And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all
nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Amen.”
Revelation 22:14; "Blessed
are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into
Addressing Claims that the Gospel is Untrue
After much study into the matters
of what people are told to be the gospel, it is certain that what we've been told by various Churches cannot be the truth.
We all say we believe in Jesus, or have faith in Jesus as the Christ - but where do we find God or Christ ever teaching
what many say that is in oppossition to the very words of God? God is not mocked, but millions of Christians are being
played for fools to swindle them out of their money and eternal life.
people in the world will not seriously investigate the Jewish faith, let alone the Christian faith, and far fewer will investigate
to find the original teachings of Yeshua that expose the false doctrines of Saul. Studies so far have made the specific
point that Yeshua taught the goodness of God and His faithfulness to His word and of our need to repent to do as God instructed
mankind. The vast majority have been taught things that really are not so. Throughout the history of Christianity
there have been a number of perversions foisted upon men by the Roman Catholic Church, and others have often multiplied error
upon error, and this was primarily done by accepting those that God and Christ already instructed us to not hear. The
second mode of perversion was through contamination of the remaining texts from Matthew and John. This is why Rome threatened
Eastern Christians to change the texts of their Scripture to match the lies Rome added in or took away from the original texts.
As noted, a good resource to consider is the Aramaic English New Testament (AENT), and it notes some of the textual
issues that will be discussed in the following review of claims against Yeshua being the Christ (Anointed One).
One web site claims that Jesus
Christ is a false messiah and lists pages of points to prove this proposition. The internet being what it is - an electronic
connection between people all over the world. If one searches for something like "Was Jesus Christ a false Messiah",
there are quite a number of sites to review the claims. In the interest of truth, if there is such a thing as truth
(as Yeshua claimed and taught), then one might review the claims to show that truth has no fear of investigation. Details
matter, especially when considering that the word of God will withstand investigation - and quite often one might see that
some accounts in the New Testament do not stand up against accusation, which will show which accounts are worthy to be called
Scripture, and which are not.
The first section are Prophecies that identify the Messiah that Yeshua didn't fulfill.
1. Matthew 1:23 says that Jesus would be called
Immanuel, which means "God with us." Yet no one, not even his parents called him Immanuel at any point in
ancient Aramaic text of Matthew ends with verse 17, so 1:23 is a later addition and has nothing to do with what Matthew wrote
originally, and proves the text is added, so the charge is actually not true, but does show the additions to not be true.
2. The Messiah must be a
physical descendant of David (Romans 1:3 and Acts 2:30). Yet how could Jesus meet this requirement since his genealogies
in Matthew 1 and Luke 3 show he descended from David through Joseph, who was not his natural father because of the Virgin
Birth. Hense, this prophecy could not have been fulfilled.
2a. Romans was written by the false apostle Paul, not one of Yeshua's faithful
disciples. The genealogy of Luke has fatal flaws, and further proves Luke, a disciple of Paul, did not know the Scriptures
any more than Paul did. Again, the AENT goes back to the ancient text to prove that the word used for Joseph was not
the term for "father" of Yeshua, but one that also includes the male guardian - as a step-father, or father who
adopted him. To be engaged in ancient Israel was as binding a contract/covenant as marriage. The primary prophecy
of the Anoitned One (Messiah) is Deuteronomy 18:15, that God would raise up a prophet from amongst Israel that whoever doesn't
hear whatever that prophet said would be cut-off from amongst the people - which is what Yeshua taught the force of his words
to be the very words of God Himself as given to him by God. Acts is correct to note the promise of God to David and
the Anointed One. There are two roles of the Messiah - one is the suffering servant spoken of in various prophesies,
such as found in Isaiah and Psalms, and also the role of one coming in judgment upon the earth to establish the prophecied
Kingdom of God when the Messiah will rule the earth from Jerusalem. Yeshua fulfilled the suffering servant and 'that
prophet" roles, as he also fulfilled the 'lamb of God" prophecy spoken of by John the Baptist. He will not
rule the world until his return - which he also spoke of as surely coming at a future time, and will fulfill the remaining
prophecies then. For information about Paul, see http://www.jesuswordsonly.com
3. Isaiah 7:16 seems
to say that before Jesus had reached the age of maturity, both of the Jewish countries would be destroyed. Yet there
is no mention of this prophey being fulfilled in the New Testament with the coming of Jesus, hense this is another Messiah
prohecy no fulfilled.
The two primary claims to Isiah 7:16 are questionable at best. One is the added text of Matthew 1:23, already addressed
above, and the other is the gospel of Luke, which is also shown lacking, so the charge is really baseless. The primary
text of consideration from this area of Isaiah is chapter 9: 1-7, which says "For unto us a child is born". Yeshua
didn't rule from the throne of David then, so much of the prophecy is yet to be fulfilled. From what is true and of
prophecy, Yeshua was a great light to the gentiles, and as Isaiah 42 clearly says, he would cause the Gentiles to honor the
Law. This is what Yeshua taught - that men of all nations become his disciples and keep the commandments of God and
his testimony of the words God gave him to speak as "that prophet". The charge is baseless because the texts
it is based upon are not really true. The charge appears to be true, but it is not against the actual testimony of Master
Yeshua or his original disicples of record. One has to believe liars to then be shown the liars lied - but that does
not prove any prophecy of Isaiah or Yeshua to be untrue.
The next category of charges come from passages many Christians use to verity Jesus
as Messiah, but failed to show they were fulfilled. Scripture has many prophecies about many peoples and nations. Rather
than being drawn into a fruitless debate, it could be best to go back to basics and abide in those prophecies claims from
Matthew and John - not Paul and his disciples who wrote Mark, Luke and Hebrews. There are also books in the NT that
claim to be from John and Peter that were not in the ancient Aramaic texts - known as the Western Five. The foundational
gospel account to grasp is Matthew. If there are books in our texts that should not be there because the authors and
the accounts are not proven to be true by the very instructions, precepts and commandments from God, as found in the Torah,
Psalms and Prophets - you may find yourself to be loosing faith in the spurious books claims, but if your faith and belief
is founded from where Yeshua taught our faith to be based from - we can safeguard ourselves from being deceived or falsely
led away from the truth of God over belief in false apostles and false scripture.
4a. First is a claim about the prophecy of Zecheriah
9:9, and Yeshua entering Jerusalem on the colt of an ass. The founder of Scotland Yard studied this prophecy to show
that it is the fulfillment to the day of a prophecy by Daniel of when the King would enter Jerusalem. In the accounts
we can see Yeshua's sorrow in knowing that they would not receive him at that time, as they didn't even recognize the day
of their visitation as foretold in Prophecy. Yeshua then also foretold that they would see him no more, until they would
say "Blessed is he that comes in the Name of Yehovah." Prophecies also tell that the nation of Israel would
be dispersed throughout the nations after Pentecost, when the Church started. Prophecies also tell of the regathering
of Israel after that time. The account of Matthew 21:4 and John 12:14-15 withstand the charge to have nothing to do
with the historical accounts from Matthew and John being proven false.
5. Matthew 2:17-18 quotes Jeremiah 31:14-15, claiming that it was a prophecy
of King Herod's alleged slaughter of the children in and around Bethlehem after the birth of Jesus. This passage refers
to the babylonian captivity, and is clear by reading the next two verses (16-17) to have nothing to do with Herod's massacre.
5a. God commanded Moses to
make sure he built the Tabernacle as told - in all regards. Even the Torah foretells of "that prophet" to
come, yet it also says that the Instructions from God will not be set aside, as some Christians believe because of Paul. In
Jeremiah 31 there is also a prophecy of the gospel - the "new thing", but prophecy was that the Law would be on
the people's hearts and minds - and everyone would know Him. As prophecy also says, "Who has believed our report?"
Because God commanded the golden candlestick to be the light in the Temple does not say that the true meaning is the
enlightenment of the seven spirits of God. To claim prophecy or foreshadowing things exclude verses to also be about
the life and ministry of Master Yeshua should easily be seen as error, and thereby a false accusation.
