We might as well be right back in the age of the pharisees. At every turn, we are met by one con artist after and one law keeper after the next who are intent on using their position and power in order to take from the masses. The endless corruption we are witnessing in our government, in churches and society as a whole is the exact malfeasance that Iyesus spoke against. You don’t even have to be a believer to understand why the powerful summarily executed the man who has been renamed to Jesus. Of course the pharisees wanted to get rid of Him, he spoke against their hustle and threatened a system that oppressed the masses in order to elevate the powerful.
Listen closely and I will recount the blueprint of the powerful and how pharisees of antiquity and of our time assassinate prophets and those who speak for the people and then invert their teachings in order to perpetuate the very same things honorable messengers of peace spoke against. After they drove nails into the body of Iyesus and killed Him in order to protect their racket, the teachings and message of Iyesus started to spread like wildfire. They can kill the messenger but the message is only enhanced by the blood of martyrs. Christianity took root in Ethiopia in 33 AD (International Business Time ~ Ethiopia: The First Christian Nation) and from there the teachings of Iyesus started gaining adherents and converts throughout Middle East and beyond.
When Christianity arrived in the Roman empire near the third century, the message of unity and love became a clear and present danger to the Roman way of coveting money and conquering the known world with savage militarism. Constantine initially tried to eradicate this threat by literally feeding Christians to lions and crucifying untold hundreds of thousands using terrorism to squelch Christianity. Constantine was the Hitler of the Second Reich, this is why Adolph called Germany the Third Reich, he was just trying to follow in the footsteps of Constantine by emulating his brutality. Constantine’s wickedness was singularly rare and matched by only a few in the history books, Pol Pot and Nero combined had nothing on Constantine. For decades, Constantine committed genocides against anyone who dared to say they were believers of Christ.
Try as he might, he could not get rid of the pesky Christians—the more he killed them, the more they grew. And then, as if Satan himself whispered a malicious advice into the ears of Constantine, he decided to stop killing Christians and reassessed his tactics. Instead of using the sword to lop off heads, Constantine decided to use subterfuge to invert the teachings of Iysesus. This most malignant man and despot who should be universally reviled with an even harsher condemnation than we rightfully reserve for Hitler decided to use cunning to co-opt the teaching of Iyesus. He emulated the story of the prophet Paul and faked a conversion to Christianity. He told of how he saw a light in the sky that looked like a cross and from that moment on, the lie is told, Constantine decided to become a Christian.
What he did was bastardize Christianity and pervert the teachings of Iyesus. The Roman empire, rife with paganism and idolatry, painted over their cancerous society by using Christianity as a veil. The foundation of the Catholic church was laid on this farce and a lie (the Vatican: Mercenaries Disguised as Missionaries). A conclave was convened as the pagan leader and the mystic teachers of the time were brought together under one roof and instructed to absorb the teachings of Iyesus under the umbrella of the existing Roman state religion. The high priests did as they were told; they took the bible, ripped out over 30 books, profoundly changed some of the words, added a new book to pare it down to exactly 66 books (this is not a coincidence), and then presented a new bible—in the process they erected the Catholic church as the one true religion of Isesus. This is how the devil tries to invert the existence of God; ever since he deceived Eve and Adam to partake of himself, Satan has been using deception to divert humans away from God and into the arms of sin and covetousness.
The Catholic church did an astounding job of diverting humans away from God and drove us right into the arms of endless bloodshed, wickedness and debauched conquests. In the history of mankind, no institution has committed as many genocides and egregious acts against humanity as has the Catholic church. They literally painted over Iyesus using likeness of Cesare Borgia (The Man who Became the Face of Jesus) to present Iyesus looking like some dude from Milan. Iyesus traveled to a land we now call Egypt, which was really Kemet and part of northern Ethiopia, when he was a child along with Joseph and Mary in order to get away from Herod’s persecution. Why would they have fled to a land of brown people if Iyesus looked like the painting at the top of this article? His name was also changed to Jesus from Iyesus (Yeshua), Jesus is paying homage to a Roman pagan God named Janus.
This is how messages are destroyed, not by killing believers but by inverting their teaching. The inversion continues to this day as politicians say they are servants when really they are leeches sucking on the hopes and lives of the masses. Preachers take to the pulpit to covet money in the same temples that Iyesus once turned over tables to condemn usury and the exchanging of money in houses of worship. I once went to a church where the pastor literally spent the entire sermon talking about how people should give money from the top as soon as they get their paychecks. My blood boiled listening to this fraudulence—God wants nothing to do with our money. Money is a necessary evil that is the root of all wickedness, why would God want money when money is the very means by which his love is destroyed on a daily basis.
If you want to know about the teachings of Iyesus, read the bible and then pray within to reach our father who lives in all of us. This is not me saying this, I’m just echoing the teachings of Yeshua that he dispensed to his disciples when they asked him how to pray. Iyesus said to his followers:
“But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not babble on like pagans, for they think that by their many words they will be heard. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.” (Matthew 6:5)
Faith is not with the eyes, faith is felt with the heart. The pictures at churches and the endless religious symbols are nothing more than forms of idol worshiping. Iyesus spoke against that too, symbolism is a means to separate us from one another and to elevate one people above the other, this is why Moses threw the commandment at the golden calf when he returned from Mount Sinai and saw his people praying to an idol by way of a symbol. For the record, the color of Iyesus is inconsequential, we all bleed red why are we always focusing on the skin which is DEAD? What mattes is the love that he spoke, his color is insignificant::
What would Iyesus do? Simple, love your neighbor as you love yourself, speak against evil, and be kind to the least among us. Those simple rules would heal the world, sadly these simple precepts are inverted by the powerful so that they can perpetuate their status while they step on all of us. We have mega churches which are really nothing but mega deception and our politics nothing more than a way for us to partake in our own oppression, at the root of all these things is avidity and greed. We are a lot that is being guided by wolves even as they pretend they are benevolent shepherds. They come to us dressed as lambs when they are really wolves serving themselves and money as their gods.
Empires fall when led by gluttony and preach greed as righteousness. America has been turned into the Babylon and in the process we have let the moneyed few use our nation to spread institutional avarice throughout the world like a metastasizing cancer. This system of global greed and pervasive indulgence will come tumbling down; a people who can’t coexist with the abundance of this world will in time consume themselves with the fire of selfishness. When that time comes, the lies of the world will be revealed to those who have been brainwashed into accepting vices as virtues—it’s called Revelation for a reason.
“Woe, woe to the great city,the mighty city of Babylon! For in a single hour your judgment has come.” And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, because there is no one left to buy their cargo.” ~ Revelations 18:11 (add up 1 + 8 then combined it with 11, what do you get)
