Constantine & Christianity

 

Yeshua (Jesus) was a Nazarene.

The word “nazarene” means simply someone from the city of Nazareth.

The followers of Yeshua (Jesus) were called Nazarenes,

simply because they followed Yeshua (Jesus) from Nazareth.

Roman Emperor Constantine realized that he cannot stop followers

of Yeshua (Jesus) or the Gospel- the Way as they called it.

It was not Yeshua (Jesus) or the first apostles but Constantine who gave

birth to a new religion called Christianity in Rome in the 4th century.

Constantine also made his new religion Christianity the main religion of Rome.

Acts 24:5 5 For we have found this man a plague, a creator of dissension among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes.

 

New Testament, Christ & Christian

 

By 382 AD, Pope Damasus I (Bishop of Rome) commissioned church father

Jerome to produce an official translation of the Bible into Latin that could be

used with confidence within the Roman churches.

This translation became known as the edition Vulgate but we can also call it

the Roman Catholic Church`s Bible or Catholic Bible.

The Vulgate became the official version of the Bible in the Western churches

for the next 1 000 years.

The Vulgate is also a late 4th century Latin translation of the Bible,

in which we can find the words Christ and Christian for the first time.

Before the Vulgate text, the words Christ and Christian never existed !!

The Codex Sinaiticus is the oldest and most reliable intact entity in the

Greek New Testament that we have today.

The words Christ and Christian do not appear at all in the Codex Sinaiticus !!

 

catholiccatechismbaptism

 

Catholic change

 

In the Catholic Catechism, the Catholic Church declares that the baptismal formula

was changed from the name of Yeshua (Jesus) to the Trinitarian formula in the 4th

century.

Everyone in the Bible that was baptized, from the day of Pentecost to the Ephesian

disciples (the last recorded baptism in the book of Acts), was baptized in the name

of Yeshua (Jesus).

“Into Christ. The Bible tells us that Christians were baptized into Christ (no. 6). They belong to Christ. The Acts of the Apostles (2:38; 8:16; 10:48; 19:5) tells us of baptizing “in the name (person) of Jesus.” — a better translation would be “into the name (person) of Jesus.” Only in the 4th Century did the formula “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” become customary.”

(Bible Catechism, Rev. John C Kersten, S.V.D., Catholic Book Publishing Co., N.Y., N.Y.; l973, p. 164/ pic above)

So there is evidence that every follower of Yeshua (Jesus) for the first 300 years was

baptized in the name of Yeshua (Jesus) only !!

 

nazarene

 

Nazarenes

 

I repeat:

Yeshua (Jesus) was a Nazarene.

The word “nazarene” means simply someone from the city of Nazareth.

The followers of Yeshua (Jesus) were called Nazarenes,

simply because they followed Yeshua (Jesus) from Nazareth.

2 Corinthians 11:4
4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!

 

First church buildings

 

The followers of Yeshua (Jesus) did not use the cross symbol anywhere or ever-

it is also Constantine’s invention from the 4th century.

Yeshua (Jesus) was crucified with a Roman execution stake instead of a cross.

Soon Constantine also started to build church buildings-

Rome’s earliest churches date from the 4th century.

Constantine also changed many temples of pagan gods to

Christian churches simply by placing a cross on the roofs.

But why Constantine began to build church buildings ??

All religions have some things in common:

on a holy day, holy persons perform holy works and tricks, in a holy building-

and other practitioners of the same religion, usually for a fee, are the spectators.

Another Jesus, spirit & gospel

 

2 Corinthians 11:4

4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached,

or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received,

or a different gospel which you have not accepted—

you may well put up with it!

 

Because Constantine realized that he cannot stop followers of Yeshua (Jesus),

and he could not join them but he gave birth to a new religion around another

counterfeit Greco- Roman Jesus side of them.

Christianity and Christians were born- with another spirit and another gospel.

Also Yeshua (Jesus) did not say:

“you have to become Christian” or

“You have to convert to Christianity”.

Yeshua (Jesus) did say: “You have to born again” !!!!

Christian denominations (and divisions)

 

One third of the world population is Christians.

Half of those Christians are Catholics.

All Christianity has Roman Catholic roots (thanks to Constantine)-

believe it or not.

Nowadays, there are about 55 000 Christian denominations (divisions)

in 238 countries (Source: World Christian Encyclopedia).

Nearly all of those are having a form of godliness but denying its power.

55,000 little different and modern salvation, jesus, doctrine and creed…

That is really Christian liberty- but sadly not biblical liberty.

 

  • Independents (about 42 000)

  • Protestants (about 10 000)

  • Marginal Christians (about 2 000)

  • Orthodox (about 800)

  • Roman Catholics (about 250)

  • Anglicans (about 200)

Luke 24:46-49

46 Then He said to them,

“Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ

to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,

47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached

in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

48 And you are witnesses of these things.

49 Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you;

but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued

with power from on high.”

 

If your church (or denomination):

  • does not preach the Gospel with biblical Yeshua (Jesus)

  • does not preach repentance, holiness and hell –>

  • most likely does not have the Holy Spirit –>

  • lacks water baptism

  • worships Mary, Pope, your pastor or any other human beings

  • has tithing as the only one biblical thing

  • has pics, icons and statues of Jesus in the walls

run for your life !!!!

Churchgoers

 

What’s the problem ??

 

You may think, what’s the problem ??

All denominations are still Christian.

The problem is, our God Yahweh or Yeshua (Jesus) have never commanded anyone

to found or build a church or churches; denominations, organisations or buildings.

The Solomon`s Temple in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) was the only one building

Yahweh our God did command to build and to go to.

You don’t need to go to church.

You are the church.

 

Real church
Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them”.

 

Acts 1:8

8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you;

and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,

and to the end of the earth.”

 

1 Corinthians 6:19

19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you,

whom you have from God? You are not your own.

Different & modern creeds, doctrines, salvation and jesus

 

Every one of those denominations has a little bit different creed and doctrines.

Every one of those denominations has a little bit different and modern jesus.

Every one of those denominations has a little bit different way of salvation.

However, every one of those denominations proclaims to be the only one

leading people to heaven.

I repeat:

Every one of those denominations proclaims to be the only one leading

people to heaven.

One of satan`s lies is: “all Christians go to heaven”.

Christians do not go to heaven- born agains do go.

Christians usually know quite well that Judaism and Islam are religions.

What they do not know is that Christianity is also a religion.

No Holy Spirit, no born-agains & no salvation

 

However, not all people in these denominations have Holy Spirit-

in the worst case, all are without the Holy Spirit.

Each of these denominations is full of unsaved people-

in the worst case, all are without salvation.

Religious people just have many many religious traditions and works.

You can be a Christian.

Just remember; Christians do not go to heaven-

only born agains go to heaven.

Yeshua (Jesus) did not start any new religion or denomination.

Nor did Yeshua (Jesus) command the foundation or construction of

churches (buildings).

Yeshua (Jesus) only said: follow Me !!

Satan

 

Satan was once an angel.

Satan fell in the sin of pride, thinking:

“I will be like the Most High”.

Religious pride is also extremely dangerous, quite frankly, a killer.

 

Luke 10:18

18 And He said to them,

“I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven”.

 

Isaiah 14:12-15

12 “How you are fallen from heaven,

O Lucifer, son of the morning!

How you are cut down to the ground,

You who weakened the nations!

13 For you have said in your heart:

‘I will ascend into heaven,

I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;

I will also sit on the mount of the congregation

On the farthest sides of the north;

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,

I will be like the Most High.’

15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,

To the lowest depths of the Pit.

Wheat & tares

 

We all also are living in a time where ear tickling religious pride has made it

to where people are unable to endure sound doctrine.

Wheat and tares are in same churches and denominations…

 

Matthew 13:24-30

24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying:

“The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field;

25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among

the wheat and went his way.

26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop,

then the tares also appeared.

27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him,

‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field?

How then does it have tares?’

28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’

The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’

29 But he said,

‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.

30 Let both grow together until the harvest,

and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers,

“First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them,

but gather the wheat into my barn”.

Early Congregation

 

Some people are always to be taught and never able to come to the knowledge

of the truth.

They do not love the truth so as to be saved.

Yahweh our God has given them over to the lies that they love.

The followers of Yeshua (Jesus) met as congregation every day in their homes.

Yahweh our God separated them from the world to live holy life.

 

1 Peter 1:13-16

13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully

upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts,

as in your ignorance;

15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,

16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

Early Congregation`s meetings

 

When the early Congregation came together in their homes their corporate

worship and sharing together was completely open and spontaneous with

no one leading from the front.

The early believers didn’t have anything that even approximated a church service.

They understood each congregation to be an extended family unit.

The idea of churches being institutions or organizations would have been

totally alien to them.

2 Timothy 4:3-4/ 3:5,13

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine,

but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears,

they will heap up for themselves teachers;

4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.

And from such people turn away!

13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse,

deceiving and being deceived.

 

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish,

because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion,

that they should believe the lie,

12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but

had pleasure in unrighteousness.

More problems in churches & denominations (divisions)

 

The biggest problem in organisations with one or a few leader in the front

is that churchgoers begin to rely human beings instead of Yeshua (Jesus)

and the Holy Spirit.

They also begin to believe and follow human teachings and traditions

instead of the Bible.

Evangelization, if there have been any, stops completely.

They read their Bible rarely, hardly at all.

Every now and then they pray,

usually they ask someone else to pray for them.

However, many many Christians practice this fatal religious habit.

You can not rely on or follow other Christians.

A church or denomination may (knowingly or unknowingly) lead you astray.

We are to follow only Yeshua (Jesus) with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Many many many Christians are lost and ignorant of the truth because of

following Christianity and other Christians.

Religions cannot save

 

Christianity is also a religion.

Religions have never saved anybody.

Religions will not save anybody.

Religions cannot save anybody- never.

Religions are just the devil’s traps to mislead people.

Even people who honestly seek salvation in Yeshua (Jesus).

Wake up Christians !!

Turn back to the Bible and leave religious literature.

The Bible is the Word of Yahweh our God.

Pray, pray, pray and pray.

Yeshua (Jesus) gave birth to only one Congregation and the Holy Spirit joins us in it.

Fill the heaven, not the churches !!!!

What to do ??

 

First you have to have the Holy Spirit.

If you do not have the Holy Spirit,

start praying to get it.

Read your Bible regularly and much.

Seek the truth in your Bible only.

Pray, pray, pray and pray.

Follow Yeshua (Jesus), do His will and obey Him .

Preach the Gospel to save others from eternal hell !!

Fill heaven, not churches !!

The Holy Spirit will lead you- in everything.

Religious pride

 

So, are you proud to be a Christian ??

You should not, because it is not worth it-

it is just deadly religious pride.

One very very big group in hell are Christians, who have believed

everything that is taught and preached in church buildings …

including that all Christians are saved and going to heaven.

However, Yeshua (Jesus) said: “you have to born again” !!

 

John 3:3

3 Jesus answered and said to him,

“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again,

he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
