Matthew 23:37 "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to you. How often I would have gathered your children together ... but you would not."
In the foregoing passage, Jesus says it was He that called out to His people Israel to bring them to himself - "how often I would have gathered".
Jesus is the One who spoke with Moses. Jesus is the One who filled the Tabernacle with his glory.
** Jesus is the One who called to Abraham to leave his father and kindred
** Jesus is the One who called out of Egypt the descendants of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.
** Jesus is the One who looked down upon the Egyptian army from a pillar of cloud and fire.
** Jesus is the One who walked past Moses so that Moses could see the Lord from behind.
** Jesus is the One who laments that Jerusalem would not come to him.
** Jesus is the One who met with Moses and Elijah on a high mountain.
** Jesus confirmed the Temple of God.
See Genesis 12, Exodus 3:4, 40:34, 14:24, 15:26, 33:23 and Matthew 23:37, 17:1-13, Matthew 21.
John 4:24 "God is a spirit and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
God the Father is spirit. We have the Son of God to look upon in physical form to love. To long to see that which you love but he is spirit and can't be seen, but we have his Son to look upon in Heaven and He too is God. It is the Lord Jesus who met with Moses, whom Moses saw from behind,and it is the Lord Jesus who rescued out of Egypt the descendants of Abraham, Issac and Jacob to be a people to Himself.
Matthew 21 - Jesus is praised by the crowds in Jerusalem giving the Lord his rightful honor and praise. Jesus goes into the Temple and confirms that the Temple of God in Jerusalem is his Father's House of Worship. The Lord Jesus had Moses build a sanctuary that the Lord dwelt in among His people Israel, the Tabernacle. Later, the Lord Jesus had King Solomon build him a Temple. The Lord had King Herod build him another Temple some time after Solomon's Temple no longer existed. The Lord Jesus was good to King Herod sending him John the Baptist to warn the king to repent of his evil. The king refused to heed John the Baptist.
The Jews of Asia come against the false apostle Pharisee Paul. And Jews of Asia are speaking truth when they state that Pharisee Paul speaks against the Jews, against the law and against the Temple of God.
Romans 11:28 "The Jews are the enemy of the gospel."
Romans 11:32 "God has put the Jews in blindness so that he can have mercy on everyone."
Colossians 2:14 "Christ nailed the law to the cross ...."
Hebrews 13:10 "We have an altar that Jews who serve the Tabernacle have no right to eat of."
I established in the beginning of this article that it is Jesus the Lord who called out to Abraham and to Moses; that it was the Lord who called out to His people Israel to gather their children, and that the Lord Jesus confirms his love for the Temple of God in Jerusalem (Matthew 21). The Lord Jesus met with Moses and Elijah - the Law and the Prophet, thereby confirming same (Matthew 17) and the Lord Jesus reiterates that the law and prophets stay until heaven and earth pass away (Matthew 5:17-20). The Lord laments that Jerusalem would not let him gather their children (Matthew 23:37). Therefore, it is utterly absurd and a lie of Pharisee Paul that the Lord Jesus has blinded the Jews (Romans 11:30-32).
I have set forth four passages above from the writings of the false apostle and the anti-Christ Pharisee Paul which make it amply clear that Pharisee Paul speaks against the Jews, the law and the Temple. The Jews of Asia confirm too that Pharisee Paul is evil because the Pharisee speaks against the Jews, the law and the Temple and he polluted the Temple! The Jews of Asia had Pharisee Paul thrown out of God's Temple and shut the doors on him.
Pharisee Paul brought Greeks (Gentiles) into the Temple. That is consistent with the blasphemous teaching of Pharisee Paul in Romans 2:28-29 that a Gentile can become a Jew, and which teaching Jesus calls blasphemous in Revelation 2:9 and states that such teaching emanates from the Synagogue of Satan; therefore, whatever institution is promulgating the doctrine that Gentiles can become Jews is a Synagogue of Satan. The Gentile churches founded on Pharisee doctrine preach Romans 2:28-29 making them all Synagogues of Satan. The Father's House of Worship is the Temple in Jerusalem and none other! All of these Gentiles churches are an offense to God and people of the Lord come out of them!
Revelation 1:4 "John, to the seven churches which are in Asia ...."
Revelation 1:20 "... the seven candlesticks which you saw are the seven churches."
The Jews of Asia are the believers upon the Lord Jesus and the Lord divides them among seven churches; and here the term 'church' is not a building and has no resemblance whatsoever to the Gentile churches. The Jews of Asia attended the Temple of God until it was destroyed in 70 a.d. And just as the Lord Jesus confirmed the Temple, the law, the prophets and the Jews while on the earth, in the flesh - so too he confirms them in Heaven and those Jewish believers, descendants of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, who obey the Lord are represented in Heaven by seven golden candlesticks.
Gentiles were never instructed by the Lord Jesus to build mock Temples of God with an altar and a symbolic sacrifice. And the Pharisees would never had put that stuff on the Gentiles but for their end of the deal which was massive wealth and power of authority over the Gentiles.
Romans 15:27 "I taught the Gentiles that it is their duty to meet our material needs because we are bringing them spiritual teaching."
Hebrews 13:17 "Remember those who have rule over you, those who spoke to you the word of God...."
To all those who are of the spirit of error (1 John 4:6) calling me a snake, an anti-Christ for exposing THE anti-Christ false apostle Pharisee Paul, the Jews of Asia said your beloved Master POLLUTED the Temple of God! Your beloved Master speaks against the very people Jesus laments over. Jesus says: Jerusalem Jerusalem, how I wanted to gather your children together but you would not have me do so and the Pharisee speaks against the Jews! Your evil Master Pharisee Paul slams the Jews saying the Lord Jesus has blinded them and that they are the enemy of the gospel! Your beloved Master who is of Satan speaks against the Temple of God and Jews saying "we have an altar that those who serve the Tabernacle have no right to eat of." Those of the Tabernacle include Moses and the Lord Jesus! Your pathetic child of Hell Master Pharisee Paul speaks against the law saying Jesus Christ nailed the law to the cross.
The Jews of Asia had Pharisee Paul thrown out of the Temple and the doors were shut on him.
2 Timothy 1:15 "All those in Asia are in rejection of me...."
Gentiles, the Lord Jesus asks that you handle your time and money in accordance with Matthew 25:31-46. Do not heed the Gentile preachers who say tithe to us. Tithes are for the Temple of God which is no longer in existence. Do not attend the Gentile churches, they are founded on the doctrine of Pharisee Paul, the very man whom the Jews of Asia had thrown out of God's Temple.
When Jesus returns to earth to reign from the coming Temple in Jerusalem:
Zechariah 8:22 "Many people and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem and to pray before the Lord."
The Lord did not instruct Gentiles to build mock Temples, that stuff is of the Pharisees who did same for money and power of authority.
The Lord does not ask Gentiles for any thing but to love the Lord by refraining from doing evil deeds and by not turning a blind eye to some one in need who you can help. If only the people would show love toward neighbor instead of dumping millions of dollars into church collection plates every Sunday, this society would be a better place. But as the Synagogues of Satan, the Gentile churches, have spread every where so too darkness has spread every where. The world has gotten darker, not brighter, with the ever increasing numbers of Synagogues of Satan.
