Romans 10.16 No, no, NO! That is NOT what Esaias means. Instead, Esaias means that not all of the Jews and the Greeks have obeyed the gospel, because Esaias also said, "Lord, who has believed our report?"
Wow, what great supporting evidence for Paul's claims that Jesus is in Hell, Jews who obey God's commandments are going to Hell, Greeks are just as bad as the Jews are, and Christians do not have to obey God's Law anymore, eh, Christian? All this babbling on and on against Jews and Greeks is just another example of how Paul was willfully seducing you Christians into:
- practicing discrimination / iniquity,
- HATING your fellow man while you simultaneously profess to be sooooo loving,
- becoming the ultimate hypocrites on planet Earth,
- disobeying God's commandments,
- exalting yourselves as being holier-than-Thou, and
Well, here we go again quoting Isaiah to see what is really being said in the scriptures that Paul misinterpreted, for they are referring to Jesus Himself.
Isaiah 52.10 "Depart you! Depart you! Go you out from Christianity, Judaism, and Islam! Touch no unclean thing. Go you out of the midst of her. Be you clean, you that bear the vessels of the Lord, 12for you shall not go out with haste nor go by flight, for the Lord will go before you, and God of IsReal will be your rereward (rear guard). 13Behold, my servant shall deal prudently. He shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high 14as many were astonied at you.
To be "astonied" is to be deprived briefly of the power to act, dazed, and filled with consternation or dismay.
Jesus' visage was so marred -- more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men due to Christianity's grotesque misrepresentation of Him. 15So shall He sprinkle many nations with the wrath of God. The kings shall shut their mouths at Him, for that which had not been told them shall they see, and that which they had not heard shall they consider.
Isaiah 53.1 Who has believed our report, and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? 2For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant and as a root out of a dry, disSpirited ground. He has no form nor comeliness because He is now in Spirit form, and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men -- a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief -- and we hid as it were our faces from Him. He was despised, and we Christians, Jews, and Muslims esteemed Him not.
4 Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. Yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5But He was wounded for / BECAUSE OF OUR Christian, Jewish, and Muslim transgressions. He was bruised for / BECAUSE OF OUR Christian, Jewish, and Muslim iniquities due to your grotesque racism and sexism in your whoreable misrepresentation of Him, religiose. The chastisement of OUR Christian desire for peace was upon Him, because you people who saw through Christianity's madness refused to speak up for Him when you heard them maligning His Word. After all, you didn't want to "make waves" or suffer being accused of being a "trouble maker," and mocked, scorned, rejected, and persecuted, did you, silent ones? And with His stripes we are healed.
God did NOT crucify His Son. People crucify Him. And we are healed from our sins when we:
- wake up to see the insanity of the Christians' worship of His death,
- are horrified by His crucifixion,
- endure the stripes of God's chastenings/discipline during the process of learning how to clean up our own act,
- and endure the persecution of Christians, Jews, Muslims, and non-religious people due to our speaking up for Savior and their despising to hear His Word spoken through us.
6 All we Christians, Jews, and Muslims like sheep have gone astray. We have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord God has laid on His Son the iniquity of us all.
Just see if you can find even one religion on planet earth that does not practice iniquity / discrimination.
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth. He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who shall declare His generation? I will, Lord! For He was cut off out of the land of the living. For the transgression of my people was He stricken. 9And he made His grave with the wicked and with the rich in His death, because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth."
Again, I tell you that when God tells us that Jesus' grave was with the rich and the wicked, He is talking about the Lord's Doctrine and Spirit being buried due to religions misrepresenting Him and warring against His Doctrine. The tomb in which Jesus' flesh was laid was that of Joseph of Arimathea who was rich, but not wicked! Instead, Joseph was one of the Lord's many disciples. Thus, God is talking about the Master's Doctrine, Spirit and example being entombed in that Christians DO NOT PERCEIVE what the Master says and the way that He commands us to be. God is also referring to Christians, Jews, and Muslims being disSpirited -- to their not giving birth to His Spirit, and thus, to their being Spiritually dead as a doornail.
In addition, the "he" who made the Son's grave with the wicked and rich to whom God-through-Isaiah refers in that scripture is both God and man. Humanity did it when people buried the Lord's Doctrine in Paul's vile dogmanure, but God made sure that they did it in order to:
- wake us up today to the insanity of the world's religions
- so that mankind can finally come to see how ignorant even the greatest intellects are
- and how lost we humans are without His guidance
- so that we would FINALLY come to recognize our need for His leadership in our lives,
- and come to worship and adore God and His Son for real.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him. He has put Him to grief. When you shall make His soul an offering for YOUR sin, Christian, Jew and Muslim, He shall see His seed. He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. 11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied. By His, the Master's knowledge, shall my righteous servant justify many, for he shall bear their iniquities. 12Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great "apostle" Paul, and he shall divide the spoiled rotten Christian brats with the strong arm of God, because the Lord has poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors when non-Christians accused Jesus of being the head of the Christyins, and Jesus bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
These verses from Isaiah have dual meanings that refer both to Jesus and repentant people. When He says, "When he shall see the travail of his soul...," God is referring to:
- religious people repenting of their sins and then seeing the travail of the Master's soul when He was being tortured and murdered. Those repentant people will then be horrified by it, and greatly ashamed of themselves for having worshiped His crucifixion like the Christians do, for denying that He is the Messiah like the religious Jews do, or for having denied that He was crucified like the Muslims do.
- Then when God sees the travail of the repentant person's soul, He shall be satisfied, and shall forgive that repentant person for his sins of misrepresenting God and His Son.
When God through Isaiah says, "He shall bear their iniquities," He is referring to Jesus and God's children both enduring AND exposing religion's iniquities / discriminatory beliefs and behaviors.
When God through Isaiah says, "He shall prolong his days and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand," God is referring both to:
- Jesus' ministry coming to life to be prolonged on earth leading people to salvation for forever from now on, and
- the life of the person who gains salvation being prolonged both while on earth and for eternity in Heaven, and the Word of God prospering in each repentant person's hand.
10.17 No! That is not what God through Isaiah was saying. Instead, He was saying that faith comes from hearing the gospel, and hearing the gospel comes by means of the word of God that I speak.
10.18 But I ask myself, "Haven't the Jews and the Greeks heard the Word of God?" "Yes," I answer myself, "Verily, the sound of the Jews and Greeks went into all the earth, and their words went to the ends of the world."
10.19 But then I say to myself, "Self, didn't Israel know the Word of God?" Then I answer myself, "Well, Self, first Moses said, 'I will provoke you to jealousy by those people who are not really my people, and I will anger you by means of a foolish nation.'"
That's just more ludicrous babble of Babble-on. In Paul's attempts to now convince his Roman audience that both Jews and Greeks are of evil in order to seduce Christians into slaughtering Jews and Greeks, Paul is citing Moses' scriptures. Well, let us again see if Paul's claims are true. That I can see, Moses, Jesus, and God Himself are all speaking in these scriptures. The initial speakers are Jesus and Moses.
Deuteronomy 32.1 "Give ear, O you heavens, and I will speak. Hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2My Doctrine shall drop as the rain. My speech shall distill as the dew -- as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass, 3because I will publish the name of the Lord.
Ascribe you greatness unto our God. 4He is the Rock. His work is perfect, for all His ways are of superior judgment -- a God of Truth and WITHOUT INIQUITY! Just and right is He.
God is non-discriminatory PERIOD! He does not discriminate against any person based on race, gender, age, physical disability, nationality ... PERIOD. That you Christians could go around
- claiming that He does,
- continuing Paul's mad discrimination against Jews and Greeks every time you repeat his filthy lies from the Paul-pit,
- and doing so when your leader -- Babble-on -- was repeatedly quoting Old Testament scriptures that were saying the exact opposite of Paul's claims
is bizarre! Are you still thinking you're so smart, Christian theologian?
5 They, the Christians, religious Jews and Muslims have corrupted themselves. Their spot is not the spot of His children. They are a perverse and crooked generation! 6Do you thus requite the Lord, O foolish people and unwise? Is not He your Father that has bought you? Has He not made you and established you?
When you people go around practicing racism or nationalism against your fellow man, you are the same as saying that God did a lousy job when He created the universe and the appearances of us humans unique from one another. So God did a lousy job when He didn't make everybody looking exactly like you, eh, discriminator? Oh, but you're not a self-exalting braggart, eh? Aargh!
7 Remember the days of old. Consider the years of many generations. Ask your Father, and He will show you your elders, the prophets, and they will tell you. 8When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of IsReal, 9for the Lord's portion is His people. Jacob, the anonymous 12-Step programs, is the lot of His inheritance.
10 He found him (Jacob and each member of the Program) in a desert land and in the waste howling wilderness. He led him about. He instructed him. He kept him as the apple of His eye. 11As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads abroad her wings, takes them, and bears them on her wings, 12so the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. 13He made him ride on the high places of the earth that he might eat the increase of the fields, and He made him to suck honey out of the rock and oil out of the flinty rock. 14Butter of kine, milk of sheep with fat of lambs and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats with the fat of kidneys of wheat, and you did drink the pure blood of the grape when you experienced the Wine of Life -- the Spiritual blood of Jesus rushing through your bloodstream, anonymous.
Jesus is referring both to the person of Jacob whose story is given in Genesis, and to members of the anonymous 12-Step programs. People who have found recovery need to be studying the story of Jacob, and correlating Jacob's story to their own history wherein they wrestled with the Lord while finding recovery from their sins and addictions. And people in recovery are supposed to be comparing what Jesus is saying here that God did for Jacob to what He also did for them while they were in the process of finding remission from their sins and their disease of addiction.
15 But Jeshurun waxed fat and kicked. You are waxen fat, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. You are grown thick. You are covered with fatness. Then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
Now Jesus is not only referring to the people of religion, but to the people who found recovery but then forget the miracle. They stopped attending meetings and doing the works, started going to church and doing nearly no good works per their religion's instructions, and in the process lost salvation.
16 They provoked Him to jealousy with strange gods. With abominations provoked they Him to anger. 17They sacrificed unto devils, not to God -- to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up whom your fathers feared not.
And this where I feel God steps in to do some of the talking.
18 Of the Rock that begot you, you are unmindful, and have forgotten God that formed you.
Then Jesus talks again.
19And when the Lord saw it, He abhorred them because of the provoking of His sons and daughters. 20And He said, "I will hide my face from them. I will see what their end shall be, for they are a very froward generation -- children in whom is no faith."
God's hiding His face refers to people's inability to perceive His Doctrine, their lack of experiencing God's blessings inside themselves, and His refusal to answer their prayers.
Now I believe God is doing the talking again.
21They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God. They have provoked me to anger with their vanities, and I will move them (religious people) to jealousy with those which are not a people (the members of the anonymous 12-Step programs). I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation, 22for a fire is kindled in my anger and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase and set on fire the foundations of the mountains of religious dogmanure.
23 I will heap mischiefs upon them. I will spend my arrows upon them. 24They shall be burnt with hunger and devoured with burning heat and with bitter destruction. I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them with the poison of serpents of the dust. 25The sword without and terror within them shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hair.
26 I said I would scatter them into corners. I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men. 27Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, "Our hand is high, and the Lord has not done all this!" I would have done it already, 28for they are a nation void of counsel. Neither is there any understanding in them.
29 Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! 30How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight except their Rock had sold them and the Lord had shut them up? 31For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges who see it. 32Their vine is of the vine of Sodom and of the fields of Gomorrah. Their grapes are grapes of gall. Their clusters are bitter. 33Their wine is the poison of dragons and the cruel venom of asps.
34 Is not this laid up in store with me and sealed up among my treasures? 35To me belongs vengeance and recompence, (so knock off your acts of terrorism, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam!) Their foot shall slide in due time, for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste, 36for the Lord shall judge His people and repent Himself for His servants when He sees that their power is gone and there is none shut up or left behind in religion's prison of hope. 37And He shall say, "Where are their gods -- their rock in whom they trusted 38which did eat the fat of their sacrifices and drank the wine of their drink offerings? Let them rise up and help you and be your protection, religiose!"
I cannot help but think about Elijah when I read that last verse.
39 See now that I, even I, am He, God your Father, and there is no god with me. I kill and I make alive. I wound and I heal. Neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand, 40for I lift up my hand to Heaven, and say, "I live forever!"
41 If I whet my glittering sword and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will render vengeance to my enemies and will reward them that hate me. 42I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh so that with the blood of the slain and of the captives of religion from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy, you people may know that I am real and I am a God of justice!"
Now I feel this is Moses talking.
43 Rejoice, O you nations, with His people, for He will avenge the blood of His servants, and will render vengeance to His adversaries, and will be merciful unto His land and to His people!
To the person who thinks these scriptures make God sound mean and cruel, think it through. After the Muslim terrorists flew those airplanes into the Twin Trade Towers and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 to destroy thousands of innocent people's lives, some Americans were very offended that God had not intervened with the Muslims' madness. Well, God is about to intervene with human terrorism. So which way do you want it to be? Do you want God to continue to stand back and allow rapists, child molestors, and murderers to carry on, or have you had enough and now want God to intervene?
I call for His intervention. I also know that every single person has the power to intervene with God's recompense and not suffer the consequences forewarned in these scriptures. All each person has to do is repent and believe the Gospel, and that person will enter God's protective custody.
Many people in A.A. say, "We work a selfish program." No, we don't. We work a program of self-care, however, by internalizing God's commandments, and complying with the will of God by performing the good works His commandments compel us to perform.
And while some people in A.A. are quite offended when they hear the following commandment, the most Spirit-led among us love the commandment because we know it to be true. "Work the Program or die!"
