Shalom Jews For Jesus:
I saw the segment on FoxNews how you are going to come to New York for the summer with the objective of proselyting Jews to believe in Jesus as the Jewish Messiah. And having visited your web site at http://www.jewsforjesus.org/
, I saw very little of what Yeshua taught, and an overwhelming assortment of the doctrines of Pagan Rome that has shackled Christianity in the abyss of ignorance since the fourth century. As Jews, you should of course be aware of the fact that the original teachings of Yeshua and TheWay were faithfully embraced and preserved by his Ebionite Disciples (see http://Ebionite.com
) -- and that the Greek and Roman converts were basically far too heathen in both their mindset and carnal lifestyle, to understand the spiritual teachings that Yeshua taught. In fact, the Christian concept of salvation where you say a prayer and you continue to live a hedonist spiritually disenfranchised lifestyle, is not only a total rejection of the very essence of the Torah, but is pure apostasy to the teachings of Yeshua and TheWay.
A very important warning is sounded by Peter in the writings of his disciple Clement with respect to soundness of doctrine of belief. Thus, in the Clementine Recognitions Peter is quoted where it is written that: "Our Lord and Prophet, who hath sent us, declared to us that the wicked one, having disputed with Him forty days, and having prevailed nothing against Him, promised that he would send apostles from amongst his subjects, to deceive. Wherefore, above all, remember to shun apostle or teacher or prophet who does not first accurately compare his preaching with that of James, who was called the brother of my Lord, and to whom was entrusted to administer the church of the Hebrews in Jerusalem, — and that even though he come to you with witnesses: lest the wickedness which disputed forty days with the Lord, and prevailed nothing, should afterwards, like lightning falling from heaven upon the earth, send a preacher to your injury, as now he has sent Simon upon us, preaching, under pretense of the truth, in the name of the Lord, and sowing error. Wherefore He who hath sent us, said, ‘Many shall come to me in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits ye shall know them.’"
Unless it is your intention to both turn against your Jewish heritage, and deny the spiritual essence of the teachings of Yeshua and TheWay, it is imperative that you consider the above words very carefully. What is the legacy of the Gentile Church which many have rightfully called the Synagogue of Satan? In the fourth century they entered into a covenant relationship with the pagan Emperor Constantine, who not only murdered the true Disciples of Yeshua and TheWay (see http://Ebionite.com/prologue.htm
), but altered crucial scriptures to create the Jesus-god that Christians today worship (see http://TheTenWords.com
) -- and further corrupted the scriptures in order to make them support the pagan doctrines of Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com
). Perhaps the reality of the Church is best portrayed in a letter to Pope Leo X on September 6th, 1520, where Martin Luther wrote of the Christianity of his day, that the church, “…once the holiest of all, has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness” (Quoted in: The Great Thoughts; compiled by George Seldes).
And while the framers of the Reformation attempted to restore the Church to its original form, they failed because the Christian world had become so alienated from the spiritual essence of Yeshua's teachings, that it was an impossible task for them to even begin to embrace. Moreover, there was a spiritual reality that was beyond their ability to even envision that was inhibiting them from restoring what the Church of Constantine had thrown away. And this reality is portrayed in the Epistle of Peter and James which is quoted on both the Ebionite web site ( http://Ebionite.com
), and the article on Bible Corruption. Where the Christians promote the counterfeit doctrine that their scriptures were faithfully preserved, as stated in this Epistle, an unclean people cannot receive the Pure Word of G-d -- and the copies which were given into the hands of the Gentiles had to be spiritually dumbed down even before they were corrupted by the Church. And this fact is demonstrated in the words of this Epistle: "Hear me, brethren and fellow-servants. If we should give the books to all indiscriminately, and they should be corrupted by any daring men, or be perverted by interpretations, as you have heard that some have already done, it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error. Wherefore it is better that they should be with us, and that we should communicate them with all the fore-mentioned care to those who wish to live piously, and to save others."
Take close notice of the words that if these scriptures and teachings were to be corrupted, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error."
Why? Because once the Key of Knowledge is thrown away, it is extremely difficult for it to be re-established. And for the Christians the task has been impossible, because they cling to the pagan doctrines of men as a foundation for their thinking and search for Truth. As an example: In the above statement of Peter that all those who remain faithful to the teachings of TheWay must "...shun apostle or teacher or prophet who does not first accurately compare his preaching with that of James"
-- and yet, the Christians not only totally reject these essential teachings, but neither do I even see a link from your web site to that of the Brother Of Yeshua ( http://BrotherOfYeshua.com
). And the fact that the Christians could not even conceive that both the Brother of Yeshua and the Disciples would be sent back into the world to guide true seekers in TheWay, is because they adhere to the doctrines and dictates of a circus prostitute and her husband who was a Roman Emperor (see http://Ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm
). So how could the Christians possess any understanding beyond the entry-level teachings of the simple faith, when they fail to understand the reality of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes -- just as Yeshua taught before these teachings were corrupted by the Gentiles. Yet, many of the more spiritually mature Jews who you are attempting to preach the doctrines of Pagan Rome to, well understand this reality of the soul that is totally absent from Christian comprehension. Quoting
The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is generally attacked by Jewish philosophers, but is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel. It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief. According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”. In the Zohar, a doctrine of Jewish Mysticism, it is written that: “All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration; and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them… The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged. But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”. In view of the fact that I am living proof that the Hasidic teachings on the reincarnation of the soul which parallels that of what Yeshua taught is a reality that few people understand -- and the fact that you have it within your power to do as Yeshua commanded, and seek the Inner Kingdom ( http://GateOfEden.com ) -- the validity of what I have written can be proven by anyone who sincerely desires to Know the Truth.
In the article on The Three Lies ( http://TheThreeLies.com
), I demonstrate that the spiritual core of Judaism has a better understanding and acceptance of Yeshua as a Messiah, than does the Christians -- and they are unable to acknowledge this fact because of the paganism of the Church which is a total rejection of both Judaism, as well as the teachings of Yeshua. And since you are coming to New York, perhaps some of your people would like to visit with me on Long Island, and discuss what you are doing. If you want the Jews to acknowledge Yeshua, then you must begin by converting the Christians from the religion of Constantine, to that of what Yeshua actually taught. And I am sure that after reading the original teachings of Yeshua as preserved on the Ebionite web site ( http://Ebionite.com
), you will have many important questions with respect to the validity of the pagan doctrines you are presently preaching. And I am sending a copy of this e-mail to Rabbi Perl in the event that he wants to interview you with respect to your effort to convert Jews to the religion of Constantine on his weekly radio program (see http://www.rabbiperl.com/
). Further, I am posting this e-mail on my web blog at http://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/
so that you will be able to easily make the above available to other members of Jews for Jesus who want to know the Truth and TheWay from an original Jewish perspective -- in contradistinction to the doctrines of pagan Rome. And yes, I am the author of that article used by many of the anti-missionary groups entitled Things Christians Don't Tell Jews About The New Testament (see http://messianic.nazirene.org/never_told.htm
Peace, Love and Light in TheWay,
