Jesus honored a great friend of Israel

I have read these verses many times. Than suddenly, I saw something new.

Jesus honored a gentile officer, and told he had the greatest faith He had seen in Israel.

Jesus met a gentile with faith. The Messiah honored this man, and said he had not seen such great faith even in Israel.

What was it that made Jesus give such a statement?

Let take a fresh look at the recording in the gospel of Luke.

Luke 7:3-10

The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.”  So Jesus went with them.

He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: “Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.  For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.

(end of scriptures).

That the Jewish elders pleaded for the centurion, is not recorded in the gospel of Matthew.

His plead has merits, and that makes this Roman officer very special. Being part of an occupying force, he is by the Jewish elders branded as a “Friend of Israel”.  Not only does he “love the Jewish nation”. He has also build the very synagogue that the Jewish elders were using.

 Genesis 12:3
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

Jesus had seen a lot of people with faith in Israel. So what was so great with the faith of the centurion?

While many Jews acted and worked as the very enemies of the Jewish people, Jesus was facing a gentile supporter of His people, who also believed Jesus was the Messiah.  Just like the Samaritan woman, who gave a testimony that would lead other Samaritans towards faith in Him.

  Isaiah 65:1
“I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, ‘Here am I, here am I.’

Cardinal: “Christians must accept the truth and holiness of other religions”

“Reject nothing that is true and holy in each religion”

Cardinal Tauran, Dr. Olav Fykse Tveit, and Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe presenting the recommendation document 28 June 2011.

This is the words of Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue (PCID).
His message has been copied on the homepage of World Council of Churches (WCC).

Together with World Evangelical Alliance (WEA), the two global Church organizations have come up with a “The recommendations regarding respectful behaviour on the part of missionaries, evangelists and other witnesses when sharing the Christian faith”.

In this recommendation letter it is stated:

 “Where possible, the preparation of codes of conduct by churches and related organizations should be done ecumenically, and in consultation with representatives of other religions.”

Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran do not deny that the churches today “have a duty to proclaim the faith”. But he ads that the Church also “to propose a greater vision of dialogue.”

He cited a principle of Catholic teaching:

 “Reject nothing that is true and holy in each religion”, cautioning that Christians must overcome religious conflicts if they are to “present the truth of God in a credible way.”

My comment:

That Christians must consult other religions, of how to best evangelize people who are not Christians, is pure non sense.

People who have not been born from above by the Spirit of God Most High, will never understand spiritual truths. Neither can they guide Christians of how to win non-believers for Jesus.

The Cardinals statement of “Holiness and truth” in other religions, is another fresh prof of the Vatican being a spiritual prostitute.  Jesus said that He is the truth. Muhammad, Buddha, Shiva or whoever pagan guru’s, are all false teachers. They lead the flock astray, and off the cliff.

Cardinals, bishops, pastors or priests who accept “holiness” among idol worshiper’s are carnal corrupt “Christians”. They will have to spend eternity with the pagans they have deceived. That will be a very hot place, that Jesus calls Hell.

 John 10: 7-9

Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.

That the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) do enter into a spiritual agreement with the Vatican, is a disastrous spiritual catastrophe.  The Harlot Mother Church do surely have harlot daughters, that are on the way back into the fold of apostate carnal false “Christianity”.

10 Billion USD worth of gold found in temple in India

While 500 million Indians can not read and write, the pagan Hindu’s have stored gold worth 10 billion USD in one temple.

The gold collectors did a good job in this temple in Kerala in India, robbing the people.

The legend of El Dorado was definitely not set on the Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple in the city of Thiruvananthapuram the state of Kerala in India .

On Thursday, the team assisted by personnel from the fire services and archeology department opened the locks of vault.

Than they found a narrow flight of stairs leading down to an underground granite cellar. Oxygen was pumped frequently into the chamber and artificial lighting provided to enable the observers to work inside.

What they saw inside was startling, sources said.

Gold coins dating back thousands of years, gold necklaces as long as nine feet and weighing about 2.5 kg, about one tonne of the yellow metal in the shape of rice trinkets.

They also found sticks made of the yellow metal, sack full of diamonds, gold ropes, thousands of pieces of antique jewellery studded with diamonds and emeralds, crowns and other precious stones lay scattered in the chamber marked ‘A’.

Friday threw up far more surprises in the form of 17 kg of gold coins dating back to the East India Company period.

Inside the vault were also 18 coins from Napolean’s era, precious stones wrapped in silk bundles besides over 1,000 kg of gold in the form of coins and trinkets and a small elephant made of the yellow metal, sources said.

Reports said the value of the recoveries so far from vault A alone may exceed over Rs 50,000 crore.  (10 Billion USD).

This doesn’t take into account their antique value.

Retired Kerala high court judges – Justice M N Krishnan and Justice C S Rajan – appointed observers by the Supreme Court said, ”It’s difficult to give an exact date about when the stock-taking would be completed. The B and E vaults remain to be opened. We think it may take another week.”

The wealth discovery has raised questions on the shrine’s security. As of now, the internal security is managed by the temple employees, but this may be inadequate in the light of the events.

My comment:

Sometimes back, I wrote a Bible study about the beast that collects gold.

Inside the pagan nation of India, you will find the most committed gold collectors in the world.

The gold is given to pagan Temple trusts, with the hope of atonement for sins. Not very different from “Christians” who pay faith healers, hoping to get good returns on their “gifts”.

The faith healer might have 100 million USD on his “temple trust”, and still deceived Christians keeps on “investing” their money in such corrupt organizations.

By letting Satan rob them from their money and gold, millions of pagan’s find them selves in dire poverty. Think about the extreme wickedness of this Indian temple trust hiding gold for 10 billion USD in their basement, and robbing the city’s children from their right to education, living in dire poverty and slum like conditions.

There are hundreds of such Temple Trusts in India.

 India has never been a poor country. India is a religious nation, with a population that has been robbed from its valuables by a small elite and priestly class. India is a beautiful land ruined by corruption and mismanagement.

The Babylonians of different colors are all collectors of gold and early possession’s.  They do not want to listen to Jesus, who say Christians shall have everything on common, and share whatever we have with the needy.

Peter’s words to the crippled beggar, is a stern warning to us all.

 

Acts 3:6
Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”

1 Peter 1:18
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors.

Link to the Bible study of the beast who collect gold.

Holland: United Europe stand divided on Israel

Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal tells Abbas the Dutch government rejects Palestinian initiative of UN recognition.

The Foreign Minister of Holland Uri Rosenthal takes a pro-Israel stand.

The Dutch government rejected a Palestinian initiative Thursday to seek U.N. recognition of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met with Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal to seek support for the plan to seek statehood at the U.N. General Assembly in September. Abbas knows that membership of a new state must be endorsed by the Security Council, where it could be vetoed by the U.S. and others.

Rosenthal bluntly rejected the idea of the Palestinian initiative going to the General Assembly. “No, it will not be supported by the Netherlands,” Rosenthal told reporters.

Instead, Rosenthal called for a resumption of “direct negotiations, right now” between Israel and the Palestinians.

However, key member states already appear divided. France has said it will support Palestinian statehood if negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians do not restart by September. But countries like Germany or Italy — and now the Netherlands — are likely to oppose any such resolution.

My comment:

The European Union do not speak with one voice. Not yet.

Men like Tony Blair works for a EU that will speak with one voice. Than small Holland will loose its voice as an independent European Nation. In fact: Holland will cease to be a nation.

The emerging United States of Europe (USE) will not support Israel. The USE will side with Islam, and put pressure on Israel to end Zionism.

Israel will find them it self totally alone. All nations will rise against her. The Jewish people will eventually enter into a compromise, that will compromise the security of  Zion.

But behold: Jesus the Messiah will come back and save Israel, when all pagans and Jewish traitors are putting the Jewish nation on the brink of the final Holocaust.
