This is the third and final installment of our series The Error of Dispensationalists: Did Israel Reject Jesus?
Part 1 can be read here.
Part 2 can be read here.
In his series of lectures, Did Israel Reject Jesus?, Sheldon Emry exposes the fundamental flaw in dispensational Christian theology that falsely encourages the belief that because “The Jews” rejected their promised messiah — Jesus Christ — that God changed His mind, broke His eternal covenant with the Israelites, and transferred His promises of salvation to all other races and peoples merely on the sole condition that they “believe in Jesus.”
Listen to the audio here:
Of the scores of the verses in the Gospel of John, John 15 is one of the portions of scripture that is often printed separately, but many of these verses are completely ignored or misunderstood as it relates to the Israel people.
John 15:23 is virtually ignored where Jesus Christ said “he that hateth me hateth my Father also“. Those who do not accept Jesus Christ and who actually hate him hate God also.
If we believe that Jesus Christ spoke the truth, then we cannot believe the propagandist called “ministers” who tells us, “Well, the Jews love the God of the Old Testament. It’s just that they haven’t recognized Jesus as their messiah.” Not so. Jesus Christ said they hate him therefore they hate God.
John 15 goes on:
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
The Israel people are never identified as the enemies of God. They could only be in the Gospel of John, where they are called “Jews”, they could only be the Edomite Jews in contrast to the Israelite Judeans who then came to know and to love Jesus.
He goes on to his own disciples in the next verses:
26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
Who was to receive the Comforter, the Holy Ghost which would then testify to the person who received it of Jesus Christ but the Israel people, who was to be the witnesses to Jesus Christ?
The Israel people, the descendants of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.
If we do not believe that the “gentiles” as we know them, who are the Christian nations are the Israel people, then we are saying that everything that Jesus said here prophesied, promised, and told to these disciples has not come to pass. In other words, it was all false, it was all futile, it was without power and without works.
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
He must have been talking about the ones who hated him and hated God who had actually put who to death? Israelites who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. And, of course, the God haters have killed millions of the followers of Christ all down through the last 1,900 years.
If it is true what Jesus said here, and that came to pass, then it would be the haters of God who killed what? Believing Israelite people. And yet we are told by the church that all the martyrs to Jesus in the last 1,900 years were non-Israelites. They were some sort of a “gentile” people. That is not what the scripture says at all.
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
He’s talking to his Israelite disciples, “I will send the Holy Ghost to you, Israel people.”
29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. 30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
Does this sound like rejection from the Israel people? Hardly, and it makes one wonder how anyone can read this far in John and accept the falsehood that the Israelites rejected Christ when He came 1,900 years ago.
John 17, this is Jesus Christ, the son of man, praying to God the Father, prior to his death and resurrection, for his Israelite disciples. Consider that common teaching today, that these Israelites turned and went back to an anti-Christ religion, denies everything that God said in this prayer:
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
We discussed this reuniting of the Israel people, the sheep folds into one sheep fold.
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
The Israelites were to be sent into the world literally in place of Christ in the age to follow:
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word.
Jesus was praying for the Israelites who would hear the Israelite disciples.
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Jesus Christ ended this tremendous prayer that the spirit and the love that was in God Jesus would be in the Israel people, and that Jesus would be in them.
And foolish ministers tell our deceived people today that all of this was of no consequence, none of this came to pass, the Israelite people all turned away, and they don’t have the spirit of Christ in them anymore.
The Edomite Jews went ahead and crucified the Lord Jesus Christ. John 18:
10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus. 11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
The reason why the Israelites did not fight to save Jesus’ life from the Edomite Jews was because Jesus ordered them not to. Who were the people in opposition? On one side were the Pharisees trying to put Jesus to death, the Israelites wanted to save him and he told them that this must come to pass.
Not only did the Israel people not crucify Christ, but neither did the Romans. It was not the Roman soldiers but actually the soldiers of the Edomite Jews who nailed Christ on the cross:
3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
Remember, the word “Jew” is from “Judean” [Greek: “Ioudaios“]. Pilate was a Roman.
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight…
All the way through the Old Testament, the Israel people are called God’s “servants”:
…that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
In other words, Jesus commanded Israel not to fight to save him because he had to be delivered to the Edomite Jews.
I want to show you how one of the greatest ways modern Israel is deceived by what they think is the Christian church. Many thousands of people in America and other Christian nations are starting to look at the Jew in America and Christendom and his unbelievable criminality, his filthy sexuality, and the anti-Christ mentality which they all show. And some of these people are beginning to wonder how in the world can those people be Christ’s chosen people? Everything they do and say and work for is anti-Christ and anti-Christian.
And so the enemies of true Israel came out with a new Bible, and they call it the Living Bible. They’ve actually rewritten God’s word to say that which they want it to say in order to deceive the Israelite people.
We have read in the King James Version in Ephesians 2 this part about the middle wall or partition, and we showed that this partition between cast off ten-tribed Israel and the remaining wife, Judah, so that that partition was broken down, and the Israel people were grafted back in to Judah, making them one. The two sheep folds were put back together.
I want to read some of these verses in the King James and then in this so-called “Living Bible”, which is endorsed and distributed by such men as Billy Graham.
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us.
Notice in the King James that neither the word “Jew” nor the word “gentile” is in the verse 14, but look at what they have done with this in the Living Bible:
13 But now you belong to Christ Jesus and though you were once far away from God, now you have been brought very near to him because of what Jesus Christ has done for you with his blood. 14 For Christ himself is our way of peace. He has made peace with us Jews and you Gentiles by making us all one family, breaking down the wall of contempt that used to separate us.
Now that’s bad enough, this corruption called the “Living Bible” in these verses can only be inspired by Satan to imply that Jews and Christians are now one people.
Back to the King James:
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.
Remember, cast-off, ten-tribed Israel under God’s law was divorced, and God had to die that she, Israel, might be made a widow. And this is made plain in the prophets. When Christ died on the cross, Israel was made a widow, therefore, she could remarry, and of course, she is and was to be remarried to the resurrected God, Jesus Christ. Same bride, same wife.
But listen to what the “Living Bible” does to these two verses:
15 By his death, he ended the angry resentment between us caused by the Jewish laws that favored the Jews and excluded the Gentiles for he died to annul that whole system of Jewish laws.
This is only half of the verse, and they’ve already annulled all of the laws of the Bible because most people think the laws of the Bible are Jewish laws. They go on:
Then he took the two groups that were opposed to each other and made them parts of himself. Thus he fused us together to become one new person. And at last there was peace. 16 As parts of the same body, our anger against each other has disappeared, for both of us has reconciled to God, and so the feud ended at last at the cross.
In other words, Billy Graham and the modern preachers who use the Living Bible are now teaching through this that the Jews and the Christian “Gentiles” have all been gathered into one people, and there is no more feud between them. They are one through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. That is blasphemy.
How in the world can the children of the devil be united with the children of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, the children of God, through the work on the cross? Jesus Christ told the Jewish Pharisees, most of whom we have identified as Edomites, that they could not hear him, that they would not hear his words, that they were not of his sheep. He said, ‘Ye are not of God.” He said to them, ‘Ye are of your father, the devil.’
People do not realize what is being done with such a corruption and deception of this thing called the Living Bible. Billy Graham printed at one time 2 million copies, and he gives them away free from his crusade and over his television. And he has endorsed this whole-heartedly. It is the fastest selling book in America today, coming up to 10 million copies. Whole denominations are adopting this corruption called the Living Bible.
…The feud between Esau and Jacob has not ended. The Esau-Edomite Jews, or Red Jews, are still attempting to complete their age-long battle to kill Jacob-Israel. And they are successful in great part because these truths are hidden from our people even to the extent of rewriting God’s word to deceive us with something they call the “Living Bible”.
The doctrines taught in the so-called Christian churches today are the main force putting the American-Israel people to sleep so they do not see Esau-Edomite, the Canaanite Jews coming to destroy us.
If you talk to someone who has been raised in one of the Christian denominations and has spent 30 years going to the churches, you try to show him the truth that we are the Israel people, and the enemies of God, the Canaanite Jews are trying to destroy us, and they will not believe it.
They say, “Oh, no, the Jews are God’s chosen people. Christ is going to come and set them up in the kingdom over in Palestine.” The scripture is entirely turned around, upside down, and backwards. And by whom? By men coming in the name of Christ and claiming to preach God’s word.
Revelation 18, as we read of the destruction of Mystery Babylon:
23 …for thy merchants were the great men of the earth for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
The word “sorceries” is from the Greek word “Pharmakia” which means drugs. The false doctrines taught by the so-called denominational churches are drugs, opiates, which have drugged the minds of God’s Christian-Israel people so they cannot see the truth. They are deceived and put to sleep by the sorceries, the drugs, of Mystery Babylon.
In John 21, at the very end of this Gospel, after the resurrection, let’s see if Jesus changed his prophecies as to who it was who was to be taught his word:
15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. 16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
In other words, you disciples feed my Israel people. And to whom did they go? They went to what we call the White race, the Anglo-Saxon Causasian people of the Mediterranean and Europe. Did they obey Jesus to feed the sheep of Israel? Obviously, they did.
…And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
Over 1,900 years ago, the name of the Israel people, as they were converted to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, was changed from Judean or “Jew” to be called Christian. And they have been known by the name for over 1,900 years.
This fulfilled Moses’ prophecy in Numbers 6, quoted so often in churches, but they skip the last verse. To what people are these verses of scripture read more than any other people on the face of the earth? They are read to the Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Celtic, and kindred peoples. And these are the blessings that God was going to bless his Israel people:
24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: 25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
They usually stop there, but the next verse says,
27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.
Those verses alone should be enough to prove that the people of the world that are called the Christian peoples, the Christian nations, the Christian West, are the true children of Israel. We have had these things fulfilled in us. God’s name has been named on our nations.
Isaiah 62, 63, and 65 we are told that the name of the Israel people would be changed. In Chapter 65, God speaks to the enemies of Israel:
14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. 15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name.
The Israel people were to be called another name other than the name of Israel. They were not to be known as Israel, and it would be obvious that that name would have to be the name of God, for he also said ministers would name my name on the children of Israel. And what people are called after Jesus Christ? The Christian people.
Back to John 1. These are the verses used by the anti-Christ and the ungodly, the enemies in Israel, if you please, to read to our people and say, “The Jews are Israelites, but they rejected Christ 1,900 years ago“:
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
In other words, when he came to his own, which would have to include all of the seed of Abraham, as portion of them did not receive him but as many as did, he gave them the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. That would mean the Christians today, and here is the division:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Who was born of the will of the flesh but Esau and his descendants? Esau deliberately left the house of his father to go and take Canaanite wives, and he married among the Canaanites, and his descendants were Edomites and Canaanites known today as “Jews”.
They were born of the “will of the flesh“. They have not been given the power to become the sons of God. But who was born of God? The descendants of Jacob-Israel. This is the story all the way through the Bible — that they would become the sons of God through the power of the blood of their messiah — and become the true Israel when they receive the adoption.
Today we are told the exact opposite of what the Bible teaches us, and it’s about time that someone spoke up and told these people that not only are the Jews — not the chosen people — but they are actually the descendants of Esau-Edom, the Canaanites, and they are the enemies of Jacob-Israel. And they are using their power over us, and their agents among us to corrupt us and destroy us if they can.
But Jesus Christ has died, has broken the power of Satan. He has given Israel that which he promised. And we only await our cleansing. May the God of Israel open the blinded eyes of his people to the truth that we may turn and join with our Israel brethren and follow Jesus Christ as he has said.
