Christianity has roots in Judaism. It separated from Judaism and based itself solely next on the life and sufferings of Jesus Christ, the son of God. Real Christians believe that God sent his son to earth to be the savior of mankind. Christ is born of Virgin Mary as a human, yet he is an incarnation of God. This is the principle of Trinity, the basic tenet of Christianity. Christ is believed to be the Messiah and faith in him alone is enough for the salvation of the followers of Christianity.
Jews are the followers of Judaism and Christians all over the world believe in Jesus Christ as being the Messiah of mankind.
• Christianity arose clearly as rejection of Judaism
• Jews believe in oneness of God whereas Christians believe in the principle of Trinity.
• Jesus Christ is the messiah in Christianity whereas he is not considered as a savior by Jews who falsely do not believe they need to be saved..
• The Hebrew Bible is based upon Old Testament whereas the Christian bible is based upon New Testament.
• Jews are mainly concentrated in Israel and North America whereas, Christians are spread across 6 continents.
• Cross is the symbol of Christianity whereas Star of David is the symbol of Judaism.
JEWS DO NOT ACCEPT JESUS AS THE MESSIAH BECAUSE:
1.Jesus did not fulfill their expectations of the messianic prophecies.
2.Jesus did not embody their expectations of the personal qualifications of the Messiah.
3.They falsely do not believe the New testament is from God.
4.Jewish belief is based on solely on the past old Testament national Judaic Nation revelation.
5.To them Christianity contradicts Jewish theology
While both Messianic Jews and Christians believe in Jesus, there are tremendous differences between these two groups
Messianic Jews (sometimes called Messianics):Simply put, Messianic Jews believe that Yeshua (Hebrew name for Jesus) is their Messiah, or the ultimate deliverer. Messianic Jews’ core doctrines dictate that Jesus is the promised Messiah written in Genesis 3:15. They also falsely do adhere to the fact that the native Israel, is still the chosen nation. They claimed that even in our modern times, the Torah which is their main Bible should still be loyally followed.; Messianic Jews’ preaching is mainly from the Hebrew Scriptures (Genesis to Malakias) whereas Christians believe in the whole sixty six 66 holy books of the Bible.;but most of the Christian emphasis is on the New Testament.. Messianic Jews believe in Tanakh and B’rit Chadasha as their divinely inspired scriptures. Christians mostly believe that both Hebrew-Aramaic and the Greek Scriptures which comprise the whole Bible are their Holy Scriptures inspired by God.;
Christians mainly adhere to the teachings of The New testament, the sole, real basis Christianity. The name itself, “Christians,” originally came from the name “Christ, “a Greek name (Christ) Anointed. They firmly believe that Jesus is the Messiah promised in the Bible, Who alone now delivers everyone from sins. They literally follow the Christ , God and the Holy Spirit as well.. Most Christians do not believe that Israel has a legitimate tile to the promised land as it solei now belongs to Jesus Christ, and no new temple needs to be built in Jerusalem abs Jesus Christ himself is the temple
Jewish Messianic teaching is all false, it contradicts Christianity and the New Testament
Most Jews, Messianic Jews, Messianic preachers are still a Bible ignorant person who does not know or understand the New Testament still too… they falsely still are trying to earn favor with God by observing certain days or months or seasons or years.
“I fear for you. Perhaps all my hard work with you was for nothing. Dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to live as I do in freedom from these things, for I have become like you Gentiles—free from those laws”. Galatians 4:10-12
“So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality. ”
Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
Even history records that for 2000 years Christians did not celebrate the Jewish feast days.. you are a real liar if you call yourself a Christian.. you still are an unacceptable liar. Apostle Paul waged a steady campaign against a group of false teachers, commonly known as Judiazers, who had sown great confusion among the apostle’s recent converts by teaching that becoming Jewish was necessary for salvation.” and Paul confirmed Christians DON’T need to follow the laws of Moses and Christians DON’T have to commemorate the Jewish people and their feast days .Even the Passover, “This feast was instituted by God to commemorate the deliverance of the Israelites from Egyptian bondage and the sparing of their firstborn when the destroying angel smote the first-born of the Egyptians. The deliverance from Egypt was regarded as the starting-point of the Hebrew nation. The Israelites were then raised from the condition of bondmen under a foreign tyrant to that of a free people owing allegiance to no one but God.. this is not a Gentile celebration as we do not worship Jews, the land they walk on, nor do we kiss their asses..
Now still it’s important to understand that Christianity is not a continuation of Judaism. When the apostle Peter gave his confession of Christ Jesus as the Christ (Messiah), the Son of the living God, Jesus replied by saying,” Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:17-18) The founder of the Christian Church is Christ Jesus (the Church is the Bride of Christ) and that believers are not required to observe the Passover is seen in the decision of the Council in Jerusalem spoken of in the New Testament book of Acts, (Acts 15:1-29).
The former Jewish only ceremonies were a shadow of the truth, but now that the Saviour Jesus Christ has come, He died once for all ,and the Old Testament Feasts and Ceremonial Sabbaths were done away with at the Cross, He Jesus Christ died at the exact moment that the Priest was to slay the Passover Lamb and when God the Father tore the thick curtain from top to bottom, Luke 23:45 ;Mark 15:38 He showed the world that His Presence had left the Temple forever and the rituals pointing to the Messiah had ended. Jesus’ death on the cross also now did away with animal sacrifices and their related rituals once and for all: Hebrews 10:9 “Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified, through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering, oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after he had offered up one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified” (KJV)
Can you be a practicing Jew and also believe that Jesus is the messiah? The customary answer is no. Though Christianity began in Jerusalem , all Christians came to understand themselves as people who by definition were not Jewish and who believed that Christianity had “superseded” Judaism — that is, “taken its seat” of favor before God. While the early church was made up of both Jews and gentiles who professed faith in Jesus as Messiah and Lord the early church was anti-Jewish. To accept Jews into the church as Jews who follow the Torah’s instructions for observant Jewish life even as they live in fellowship with Christian Jesus-believing gentiles, would represent a false unacceptable return to Judaism.. Christianity and rabbinic Judaism next emerged as rival claimants to continuity with Israel after the destruction of the Jewish temple in 70 AD.. In the case of Messianic Jews, their failure to leave their ongoing Jewishness is what damns them all to hell. Now get that into you dumb head..
It is also crap to change all the names to a Hebrew pronunciation in the English language. Most don’t read Hebrew nor do they write or speak in Hebrew. But you pervert want and insist everyone else is to pronounce God’s name in Hebrew only. Even when Jesus (Yashsua, Yeshua?) did not require it. They are betrayed by their own demonic lies..
The Jews were, are falsely expecting a false, different Messiah from the one that came to them.. So did apostle Judas, and that was one reasons he betrayed Jesus to the Jew..
The Messianic say that There was and is only one true Messiah and that is Jesus Christ but they falsely only use his supposed Hebrew tiles and not his Greek name.. and they have a different expectation of what Jesus Christ will do next for Israel then most Christians.. the Messianic Jews Messiah views are in error
Messianics do falsely observe traditional Jewish holidays such as Purim, Chanukah, etc. Real Christians rightfully do not.
Messianics observe the biblical feasts of Vayikra (Leviticus) 23 such as Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Rosh HaShanah (Feast of Trumpets), Sukkot (Feast of Booths) and Passover. Real Christians rightfully do not.
Messianics do not observe Christian holidays such as Easter, Christmas and Lent Real Christians rightfully do not. .
Messianics falsely still do worship on the biblical Sabbath, i.e., Friday evening till Saturday evening, not Sunday. HaShem says the Sabbath is an eternal covenant between Him and the descendants of Israel. (Sh’mot/Exodus 31:16). Real Christians rightfully do not.
Messianics cant the Shema, and traditional Jewish blessings .. Real Christians rightfully do not.
Messianics cant the Torah portion in Hebrew at worship services. Real Christians rightfully do not. They emphasize rightfully the New testament
Messianic Judaism emphasizes the past, no longer relavent special relationship between God and the Jewish people, Real Christians rightfully do not. Judaism is dead to God. Jesus Christ
Messianic Judaism emphasizes Jewish traditions Real Christians rightfully do not.
Messianic Judaism asserts that the Torah (literally, “teaching”) is still in effect.. Real Christians rightfully do not. Christianity claims that once Jesus “fulfilled the Law” it no longer applies.
Messianic Jews bar-mitzvah their sons and bat-mitzvah their daughters. Real Christians rightfully do not. .
A Jewish person who converts to Protestantism becomes a Christian and not a Messianic Jew.
Messianics do falsely try to proselytize Christians.
Messianics do not use the same scriptures as Protestants, including the common translations, e.g., NIV and New King James Version. as they tend to neglect the New Testament falsely..
1 Corinthians 2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration… of the Spirit and of power:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Matthew 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
There are many fools, even ignorant Christians who think that they can merely obtain God’s favor by keeping any of the laws of the Old Testament.. these deceived persons all fail to realize that the Old Testament were written to the Jews only, not to any gentiles.. Now today all of these over 465 old testament inapplicable laws are redundant, obsolete even to all of the Jews.. Further more keeping any of these laws does not insure any personal entrance into heaven.. All Jewish and non Jewish persons have to keep only these laws – to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to obey the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ The old system under the law of Moses was only a shadow, a dim preview of the good things to come, not the good things themselves. Hebrews 10:1
Can you be a practicing Jew and also believe that Jesus is the messiah? The customary answer is no. Though Christianity began in Jerusalem , all Christians came to understand themselves as people who by definition were not Jewish and who believed that Christianity had “superseded” Judaism — that is, “taken its seat” of favor before God.

Christianity and rabbinic Judaism next emerged as rival claimants to continuity with Israel after the destruction of the Jewish temple in 70 AD.. In the case of Messianic Jews, their failure to leave their ongoing Jewishness is what damns them to hell. Now get that into you head..
Now compare “Do not think that I came 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.” (Matthew 5:17-18) with “For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one, and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, 15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace.” (Eph. 2:14-15),
“Of special significance in this study is the word rendered “abolish.” It translates the Greek term kataluo, literally meaning “to loosen down.” The word is found seventeen times in the New Testament. It is used, for example, of the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans (Matthew 26:61; 27:40; Acts 6:14), and of the dissolving of the human body at death (2 Corinthians 5:1). The term can carry the extended meaning of “to overthrow,” i.e., “to render vain, deprive of success.” In classical Greek, it was used in connection with institutions, laws, etc., to convey the idea of “to invalidate.””
And while the apostle Paul certifies that “the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good” (Romans 7:12), we also do still know as per Romans 7: “1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? 2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. 4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
How much more clearer can it be , we are adulterers if we serve the law, since we are dead to the law once we have been married to Jesus Christ.. He Jesus Christ had fulfill the law as Moses had written it. Once He died and rose again He ratified what was needed to be kept under the law of Christ, the laws of the Holy Spirit (not Moses). This law was either given directly by Jesus or through the apostles after the resurrection where they all were filled with the Holy Spirit in the Book of Acts. Pentecost is not an option but mandatory for all Christians.
Jesus did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it. To have it put aside. We are under the new law of Christ and NOT under the law of Moses. Some of the Old Testament laws are ratified in the new covenant and most are not. Jesus himself had removed the requirement of having to follow the Law in order to please God, he even had established justification by faith, and thereby united both Jew and Gentile into one group in Christ. This is when Paul says in verse 15 that he abolished in his flesh the enmity which is the law of commandments in ordinances. The Law was that which separated Jew from Gentile and since it has been fulfilled in Christ, it is no longer something that would separate Jew and Gentile. Both Jews and Gentiles can be one, Christians the Church now instead. The word “fulfill” which many abuse, it does not mean to continue or reinforce. Matthew consistently used the word fulfill in a specific manner, once something is fulfilled there is not a need for any future fulfillment. Now fulfilled all mean a completion of something that is said. That something was prophesied or written and he fulfilled it or made it happen, bringing it to its end, having it come to pass, no longer applicable commandments, all he old testament laws.. 613 of them now too.. As we can see, these 613 commands were temporary and only for a certain time and next many of the Old Testament laws are given new meaning in the New Testament. Whatever came through the cross and taught by the apostles were the new applicable teachings for the Church. Jesus did not tell the disciples not to sacrifice animals during this time they were still under the law before his resurrection. Its obvious after he died the Temple veil was rent and his sacrifice was made once for all, they no longer had to do continue this approach. Mt.28 states to observe all things that I have commanded you it means and include also what he spoke to the disciples after His resurrection, as preached by the Apostles too now.. “The Old Testament Covenant was never intended to be permanent. (Gal.3:17-18, 22-25) Jesus used two examples in a parable to show the new is not to be joined with the old, (Luke 5:36-39) V.36 “No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old.”Heb.8:13 “In that He says “a New Covenant,” He has made the first one obsolete…”. Paul describes the Mosaic covenant in 2 Cor.3: 7 the HOLY SPIRIT tells us, is “passing away” and is “abolished” (verses 11,13), in its place we have the “ministry of the Spirit” and “the ministry of righteousness” (verses 8,9).” For “the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.”
You are trying to earn favor with God by observing certain days or months or seasons or years. I fear for you. Perhaps all my hard work with you was for nothing. Dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to live as I do in freedom from these things, for I have become like you Gentiles—free from those laws. Galatians 4:10-12 So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality. Colossians 2:16-17
Who Is This YAHUSHUA? How Can You HATE Christians? What’s the point of having the same pronunciation of God’s name in another language if it loses its meaning in that language? Yahshua is a false transliteration of the original Hebrew or Aramaic name of Jesus commonly used by individuals in the Sacred Name Movement. Many of the people in the SNM play word and sound assimilation’s to arrive at their faulty conclusions. Despite their emphatic claims on the name, Yahweh or Yashua cannot be pronounced the same in every language for the simple reason that certain dialects do not have the letter pronunciations nor the written language. However they insist that it can, even to the point of breaking the rules in certain dialects. There are no manuscripts showing these names in the New Testament, so it is not a requirement to correct the word Father to Yahweh or Son to Yahshua, except for ones personal preference. If the name “Yahweh” were all over the New Testament, the Church would certainly be using it today. The Yahweh only groups use Hebrew only because they place the Old Testament above the New. They actually reject the Greek Scriptures as inspired. They have falsely said that because the apostles are Jews they couldn’t write in Greek. The Romans conquerors made everyone speak Greek at that time.. Some go as far as to falsely say Hebrew is the Holy language and Greek is pagan. That is crap. The English spelling Yahshua originates only in 1950 with Angelo Traina The New Testament of our Messiah and Saviour Yahshua. The form Yahshua is used in some Sacred Name Bibles, including the Restoration Original Sacred Name Bible, Word of Yahweh and the Sacred Name King James Bible. The spelling Yahshua (יהשע) is not found in Hebrew texts. The Hebrew Bible uses Yehoshua (יהושע), and later Aramaic form Yeshua (ישוע), for Joshua, which means “Yah is Salvation.” Christians, historians, and linguists outside the sacred name movement for the most part reject the term Yahshua (יהשע) in favor of Yeshua (ישוע) as the original pronunciation. Tal Ilan’s Lexicon of Jewish Names in Late Antiquity (2002), notes Yehoshua (יהושע), and the later Aramaic form Yeshua among many names containing Yah derived from YHWH . No person or movement have been more bogus or ridiculous than the sacred name movement which has spiritual elitism written all over it.With absolutely no proof historically or scholastically for their claims, they put down the name of Jesus calling it pagan and categorize all Christians that do not speak his correct Hebrew name as following and calling on a pagan God. While the Jehovah’s Witnesses have tried to do the same thing, the sacred name movement is further down the same shaky road. This movement’s claim is the Hebrew pronunciation of Yashua as his correct (in Hebrew ) and only name to be pronounced. The questions we need to ask is first is this true and if so, is God as legalistic as they present him. Because they are saying that Yahweh’s view is “if you didn’t pronounce my name right so I’m not going to save you.” The implication is that from the beginning of the Jewish/Gentile Church up until now, has been incorrect and unsaved. Did Jesus ask people to believe only in his name only or who he was? It’s not just knowing the correct pronunciation of the name but the person behind it. Knowing HIM, in his nature and characteristics. Who do they (sacred namers) know him as? It seems you can have what appears to be the correct name and not know the person behind the name. Many sacred namers falsely do not believe Jesus or Yashua is God, The Bible warns of “ANOTHER JESUS.” the context is that Paul is making reference to someone who is called “Jesus” (Yeshua). But is someone who has a different IDENTITY, he is not the same in substance, he is not God in the flesh and therefore is not the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE (John 14:6). It is more important to have the MEANING of the word, when translating a word from one language to another, than it is to make sure everyone SPEAKS or pronounces it the same in all languages. The “NAME” means to describe one’s identity, it is representative of either the totality of ones being or specifically ones attributes or characteristics. “God’s name …is a symbol of [His] nature, character, and person… The name of the Lord is the manifestation of His character…it is synonymous with the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.” It is interesting to see a dogmatic approach from the Sacred name movement changing all the names to a Hebrew pronunciation in the English language. Yet for the most part they do not read the bible in the original Hebrew. Most in the sacred name groups don’t read Hebrew nor do they write or speak in Hebrew. But they want and insist everyone else is to pronounce God’s name in Hebrew only. Even when Jesus (Yashsua, Yeshua?) did not require it. Since the model they are using is the Hebrews who wrote the Scriptures. They are betrayed by there own hypocrisy of “do as I say, but don’t do as I do.” If God only hears his Hebrew name and the Jews spoke only Hebrew, why do some think they can say only His name in Hebrew and then go on speaking in their own language (English etc.). Its not only God’s name written in Hebrew but all the Old Testament Scripture. If they were true to their theology of speaking His name only in the Hebrew language it should be a requirement to read and speak Hebrew as well.
Matthew 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
If also the symbols become more important than listening to Lord Jesus Christ, the holy spirit and believing both of them ,then something is really wrong. 2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
YOU REALLY HAVE TO HEAR WHAT THE BIBLE, GOD, JESUS, THE HOLY SPIRIT SAYS AND NOT MERE MAN.
It is still an undeniable fact that the majority of professing Christians have not let the Holy Spirit teach them on the truths found in the Bible as they have been falsely preoccupied with the things of this world rather, so now rather they have mostly and falsely believed on the false teaching of others, those others who often have false hidden agendas including power trips.. Why are people falling for false teachings? Because they are not reading or understanding their Bibles! When it comes to knowing our Bible, not many know what is in the Bible or have a clear understanding of what it is saying. One MAIN reason may be because there are too many interpretations and arguments about what the Word of God says. Another reason may be that we put too much trust on who is delivering the message without reading it for ourselves.
We rely on our pastors and spiritual leaders to “feed” us the Word, and trust them blindly to do so but in reality, many have a different agenda and God is not in it, so people are being deceived. That is why it is important to pray, ask the Holy Spirit himself to lead and guide you as you read and study the Holy Scriptures, to understand the Word of God and keep it stored in your heart so that you would not be deceived. You will then be able to discern if what is coming out their mouths is in alignment with God’s Word, if it is not, then it is false teaching. Do not just rely on what your spiritual leaders or anyone (including myself) is telling you, check it and read it still always for yourselves.
I Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
(1 John 3:21 KJV) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 2 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
Luke 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
The word “Christ” is a transliteration of the Greek word christos, meaning “the Anointed One, Jesus was the anointed one. Jesus is the Messiah and the transliteration of the Old Testament Hebrew word pronounced maw-shakh, meaning Anointed One, which when translated into the New Testament Greek is Christos. Jesus was the anointed one. Jesus is the Messiah and the transliteration of the Old Testament Hebrew word pronounced maw-shakh, meaning Anointed One, which when translated into the New Testament Greek is Christos. Matt. 3:11, “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
Beyond the show of a doubt the devil himself firstly really hates any references to the Holy Spirit, the anointed ones, the idea that Christians do have now empowering to overcome the devil too
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
The Holy Spirit is real and he can be real to you too.. Jesus Christ himself also was baptized with the Holy Spirit. The “baptism of the Holy Spirit” is given to those persons who obey God, follow after and do his will.. it requires our initial personal involvement, willingness, obedience. The “baptism of the Holy Spirit” involves being covered with, immersed in, empowered by the Holy Spirit. Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a term used to describe a movement of the Spirit upon and/or within a believer usually at salvation but often after the person is saved. Actually it is likely that many people accept Jesus Christ intellectual but do take some time to make him fully the personal lord of their life next. SO THEY HAVE NOT RECIVED THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT NEXT YET.
(1 Cor 12:8 KJV) For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
“Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water (hudati), but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit (en pneumati hagio)…. But you will receive power (dunamis) when the Holy Spirit comes on (epiechomai) you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:4, 5, 8; see 11:15-16)
(Rev 3:15 KJV) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
The Holy Spirit of God is the Spirit of God, fully divine.” That means that in every way He is equal with God the Father and God the Son. He possesses their attributes and character. He is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent and holy. He is eternal, immutable, righteous, just and loving. And, as the third person of the Holy Trinity, He is a person. When Jesus speaks of the Holy Spirit, say in John 14:26 for example He uses the masculine personal pronoun when He says, “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit – the Father will send Him in My name – will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.” The Holy Spirit is a unique person with the characteristics which define a person. Acts 5:3 tells us that it is possible to lie to Him and Acts 7:51 tells us it is possible to resist Him. And Acts 13:2 tells us that He speaks.
Jesus had said that without Him and his Holy Spirit you can do nothing.. nothing everlasting, or significant too. yet people falsely do try to redefine Jesus, Divorce the Holy Spirit or try to redefine the Holy Spirit with false doctrines, vanities still to day.
A very lively good church is led by the Holy Spirit and the right, godly leaders.. and in a very bad church the shepherds are bad.. led mostly by the devil and self. And believe me when I say most shepherds are bad still. Great demonic confusion surrounds thus the Christian doctrine of the baptism of the Holy Spirit even among the Baptists, Evangelicals, Dispensationalists, even Jews mainly because there are too many ignorant fools who try to teach, explain something they themselves have still have never personally experienced yet.
It would be one thing if Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Unitarian Jews, and Oneness Pentecostals all had similar religions, practices, and beliefs. But they do not. Their religions, practices, and beliefs ALL WILDLY DIVERGE. THE ONLY THING THAT THEY HAVE IN COMMON IS THAT THEY ALL USE THE SAME ARGUMENTS TO DENY TRINITY AND USE THE SAME LANGUAGE TO DESCRIBE THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN IT.
The Assembly of God Pentecostals do support the Trinity doctrine https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/07/03/assemblies-of-god-pentecostals/
TD Jakes has a huge ministry and a wide influence, but much of what he teaches is very troubling. Some of what he teaches is even heretical. .a Oneness Doctrine.
That the Son was the Creator clearly disproves firstly the Oneness position. If the Son did not eternally exist with the Father as a distinct Person why is it that the “Son” can say, “Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had [eichon, or “shared”] with You before the world was” (emphasis added)? How did the Son have (literally, actively possessed) glory with (para) the Father before time if the Son did not exist before Bethlehem?. John 1: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not… and this all substantiates “the eternal pre-existence of the Son”.
The oldest available recorded Christian hymn, Hail, Gladdening Light!, which was being sung as early as 150 AD, is utterly Trinitarian! The church tradition generally holds that the Gospel of John and Revelation were the last books of the New Testament and that one or the other was written as late as 96 AD, as the beloved disciple apostle John lived an exceptionally long time. So this hymn was being sung than 60 years after the New Testament was completed and the apostle had John died. This doctrine was not an add on later.
Hail, gladdening Light, of his pure glory poured,
who is immortal Father, heavenly blest;
Holiest of Holies, Jesus Christ our Lord!
Now are we come to the sun’s hour of rest;
the lights of evening round us shine,
we hymn the Father, Son and Holy Spirit divine.
Worthiest art thou at all times to be sung,
with undefiled tongue,
Son of our God, Giver of life, alone!
Therefore in all the world thy glories, Lord, they own.
The Bible declares God the Father, called the Ancient of Days (see Daniel 7, especially verses 9, 13, and 22) to be King in various places. The Bible declares God the Son, called the Angel of the Lord in His preincarnate form (see Joshua 5:14-15, also Exodus 3:4-6 cross referenced with Exodus 3:2, Acts 7:30, Acts 7:35 ) and the Word of God (John 1:1-18, Proverb 8 especially verse 30) and Jesus Christ to be King. However, the Holy Spirit, called the Spirit of God the Father (Matthew 10:20, Isaiah 61:1, Luke 4:18) and the Spirit of God the Son (Galatians 4:6, Romans 8:9, Isaiah 61:1, Luke 4:18) is never declared to be King by scripture at any time. How is this possible if you support a Oneness doctrine?
The Spirit’s Cry to You.The cry of the Spirit to you today is:
* Allow a working of the Spirit in you, then allow God to work through you for others.
* Give way unto the Lord, even to the operation of the Spirit. Be a people known of God, doing exploits, and gripped by God.
” There is a river of the Holy Spirit that comes from God whose streams makes glad “believers” and fills them with joy and peace. As a result this river gives them joy and gladness, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. Yes, Joy and gladness are the trade marks of being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Christianity is not only to be understood with our hearts and minds and appreciated for its many miracles, signs and wonders but it’s to be experienced through the moving of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
The vast majority of preaching and Christian living done in the name of the Lord today is still really without the power of the Holy Spirit manifest through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This was, is not the way the Lord Jesus Christ had intended it to be.for sure..No one can have an effective life or ministry without the power of God’s Holy Spirit working in him or her. This fact can’t be argued by anyone who truly believes the Bible is God’s Word. The Scriptures are replete with proof that it is “not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zech. 4:6). It is true that the Holy Spirit is still willing to move as in biblical times then there is no excuse for living lives so far removed from that great victory portrayed in God’s Word.
If a Christian’s life isn’t full of the personal supernatural, it’s a pretentious one rather.
Luke 11: 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
Galatians 5: 16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
(1 Corinthians 3:1-3). “A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised” (1 Corinthians 2:14). But “He who is spiritual appraises all things…We have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:15).
Why aren’t more Christians filled with the Spirit?Simply because of undusbmitted, un confssed sin. We choose to disobey god. This can take the form of pride: doing and wanting things our way. Living a self sentered life, and We don’t give God control of our finances; we’ve worked hard for our money and it’s ours now. We don’t give God control of our relationships, assciates, choices too;. We don’t give God control of our personal morality; that’s nobody’s business but our own—not even God’s. (Proverbs 3:34). [God] mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble” Proverbs 29: 23 A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not. 25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. 26 Many seek the ruler’s favour; but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD. 27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked. Or the “Fear of man will prove to be our snare…” (Proverbs 29:25). Is there something that God wants you to do, but you haven’t done it because you’re afraid of what people will think?
Psalms 118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
Psalms 118:9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
Jeremiah 48:10 Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully,
Ecclesiastes 7: 5 It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.
Mark 9 42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
