I said: The Jews today are mainly from the tribe of Judah,...

You said: Hah. What a joke. They tell you they are and you accept. I'm cousin to your King and Queen of England. hah. You want a paper trail? Kneel you pauperaucity.

Perhaps you could provide some actual facts on this subject (biblical passages specifically on point, historical records, etc.) rather than mockery and derision? Also, since you mock their lineage, what about your own? Can you provide any documentation about your own ancestry? If not, you aren't one to talk about somebody else's.

Hosea 2:6 is a prophecy, but it does not say it is about this particular subject. I don't see how Hosea 2:16 is related to this topic either.

There is no tracing of descent according to GOD.... for "scattered" Israel. Her paths back has been hedged. She can be seen by everlasting,covenanted marks of blessing/curse.
Hosea 2:6
Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths.
So you like translating Hebrew. Here's you some.
Hosea 2:16 And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi, and shalt call me no more Baali.

Trav:

In Ezekiel 37:19, there is no Hebrew word for "even" stated or implied:
Hebrew: "venatatti otam alav et-etz yehudah"
which literally translates to "and I will give them on him the stick of Judah"
NIV translates this as "and join it to Judah's stick"

Nevertheless, where do you get your assertion that Judah does not believe, but all the others do? The Jews today are mainly from the tribe of Judah, but they include people who trace thier descent from other tribes as well - so, in effect, they are already joined.

I balance what the prophets say by reading Scripture, God's word ...---Mark_V. on 5/13/11

Their witness has not been seen utilized by you so far.
There are no OT prophets on the other end of your teeter-totter.
Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Luke 13:28
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
---Trav on 5/13/11


I balance what the prophets say by reading Scripture, God's word and no true prophet speaks of himself but what God wants them to say. Many of Israel's prophecies have been fulfilled already by Jesus and one day all things will be fulfill by Christ Jesus. God say's, there is only One Way, Christ Jesus. One Way, no matter who it is, Judah, devorced, married, 12 tribes, or just one tribe. There is no other way but One Way.
---Mark_V. on 5/13/11




It matters not who those individuals are, or from what nation they come from,...---Mark_V. on 5/13/11

Balance with GOD's prophets.
Deut10:15
Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day.
For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

Deut 32:8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
9 For the LORD's portion is his people, Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
---Trav on 5/13/11


All things written in Scripture from Gen. 3:15 pointed to Christ Jesus. And all things will be fulfilled through Him. It matters not who those individuals are, or from what nation they come from, "Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life."
Those saints from the Old T. looked forward to the coming of Christ, those today look back to the Death and resurrection of Christ. "Only those who believe by faith in the works of the Lord and His resurrection will be saved. There is no other way."
---Mark_V. on 5/13/11


It also does not say that Judah ALONE was separate from the others.
---StrongAxe on 5/12/11

Strange.... if they were apart....they would not need to be REJOINED...hmmm, a destiny. "Even Judah" is the wording.

The two sticks of Eze,books of Kings all note the separation of the two kingdoms.
The New Covenant includes these these two houses, you just recently learned about. As prophecied.

Judah has not accepted but the "Lost Sheep" of the Nth Kingdom/House has. As apparent for last 2,000 years. Matt 15:24.
Churchianity teaches Judah is all Israel. Scripture refutes this easily to those who will have "eyes" and "ears". Some can't see or hear it, as scripture notes also.
---Trav on 5/13/11


Trav:

I have no arguments with scripture or prophets or God - only with those who say things that contradict them.

You yourself just proved my point. If you read the very scripture that you just gave very carefully, it says that ALL the tribes of Israel will be put with Joseph - EVEN Judah. It does not say all the tribes will be put with him EXCEPT Judah.

It also does not say that Judah ALONE was separate from the others. If so, it would not need to mention that the other tribes would be joined to Joseph in the first place.
---StrongAxe on 5/12/11


Trav:
There is no mention of any destiny that applies to all tribes EXCEPT Judah.
---StrongAxe on 5/12/11

Well sir, your argument is with scripture, prophets and GOD. Will point for you. Which may be what your fishing/provoking me for anyway.
Note below the stated present division and prophecied union.
Eze 37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.

You NTH tribe theology is not to be found in any book chapter of verse.
---francis on 5/12/11


Well....only because you haven't found the witnesses yet. They line up in multiples.
Judah still has not accepted...but will in part, is found in Revelation with the others entering in.
The Nth House of ten was put away...and Judah wasn't.
Refusing to look or not seeing a thing does not make void. Just unfound....for a searcher.
Ezek 37:19Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.

Kingdoms with 13 components. ---Trav on 5/12/11
My friend trav: When God made the first covenant with Israel, they were one nation called " The Children of Israel." In the days of Jeremiah there were two nations Judah and israel. The first covenant was made with the forefathers of both Judah and israel, so it is only fitting that the new one be made with these same descendants. You NTH tribe theology is not to be found in any book chapter of verse.

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Trav:

Yes, each tribe had a special destiny, that was uniquely its own, but Israel AS A WHOLE also had its own destiny that applied to ALL tribes. There is no mention of any destiny that applies to all tribes EXCEPT Judah. No mention that all tribes EXCEPT Judah would believe, etc.

Trav,
These refer to the KINGDOMS of Judah and Israel, rather than tribes of Judah and israel. I do not even recall a tribe of israel

Kingdoms with 13 components. Ephraim/Manasseh equal one. All comprimising Israel. Until the split. Nth Kingdom of Ten. The Lost Sheep. Ten Virgins,Ten servants, ten,ten etc.
Judah/Benjamin the southern Kingdom or House.
Judah was never "put away" or divorced.
But is still freed by death of Christ.

Note Ezekiel 11:16,19 do NOT say:
"Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD, Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to 11/12 of them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.
I will give 11/12 of them one heart, I will put a new spirit within you, I will take the stony heart out of the flesh of 11/12 of them, and will give 11/12 of them an heart of flesh"

Jesus is the Mediator of the New Covenant talked about in Hebrews 8:6 and since they have rejected the Lord Jesus Christ, there is no laws written in their hearts as of yet. They will remain under the Old Covenant of the Law, and remain condemn. So to say they already are is not truth at all. The quotes in (v. 8-12) are taken from ( Jer. 31:31-34) and are again mention here in Hebrews, The New Covenant has come but Israel has yet to believe.

Francis, you said,

" And in case you forgot: SIN is the trangression of the law, that will never change no matter what foolisness you post. It seems that you have an obsession with sin ( trangressing the law) and believe that it is OK with God."

it seems to me that I don't have to ask you "if you are without sin, throw the first stone"
because you really weren't the first. So get in line. I don't preach the Law as you and others do, I talk about salvation by the Grace of God through faith. Not the letter of the Law, but the Spirit of the law.

John:

When somebody says something to me, I give him the respect to actually take him at his word (unless I have good evidence that his word is no good, and even then, I proceed with caution, but am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt). It would be rude to do otherwise. It would also be disingenuous, because I expect people to take ME at MY word. If you think that's assinine, so be it. But that just reflects your attitude towards honesty and respect.

As to parrots, do you think David was irrelevant because he spoke of praising the Lord 77 times in the Psalms alone - that is, almost once every two chapters?
---StrongAxe on 5/11/11


StrongAxe, it's asinine to assume when a Yank says "How are You" that it's anything but Hello.

TRUE there times when someone's actually asking that question. IN AMERICA YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!

Or it would be absolute Lingual Chaos! So your preposition is silly.

NOW TO MY 2 PARROTS...

You tell me! How many times someone repeats something do YOU think it becomes factually meaningless.

Since we can surmise Cluny/Ignatious are chatting this everywhere they go/post.

OR.. are you just a pollitcally Correct I'm ok, you're ok/"JUDGE NOT"! Luvyduvy.

1000 times???
10,000 times???

SO WHO ARE YOU DEFENDING??? CHRIST NAME OR THESE TWO PARROTS???
---John on 5/11/11


John:

Yes, I agree that "how are you" CAN be meaningless if the person saying it really has no interest in you, and is merely saying it as a formula. (You should never ask a question if you don't want to hear the answer).

However, many people who say "how are you" are genuinely interested in hearing what you have to say. It is judgmental and presumptuous, therefore, to assume that because SOME people are not sincere when they say "how are you" that EVERYONE who does so is insincere.

It is similarly presumptuous to assume that when someone says "Christ is risen!" that he doesn't really mean it.
---StrongAxe on 5/11/11


StrongAxe, Read what I said on my posts concerning this MEANINGLESS Pagan Ritual. Once more the words are meaningless to these parrots.

Your greeting example applies.

An Example... (True Story)

A Frenchman appoach me and told me he was greeted by an American who said...

How Are You!

So he then proceeded to tell him he had the flu a few weeks ago and his wife also got sick, she had a fever and then.....

HE REALIZED THE AMERICAN WAS NOT EVEN LISTENING OR INTERESTED. HE FOUND OUT LATER THAT IT WAS SIMPLY A "MEANINGLESS" GREETING.

IT SIMPLY MEANS "HELLO" TO YANKS! NO SUBSTANCE!

Thanks for making my point!

Where in the books of the NT is the command not to take God's name in vain found?
---francis on 5/9/11

Never really considered it...until your question but, it would be unecessary for the House of Israel....the laws are written in their heart and mind. Heb8:10.

The laws you seem to listen to in your heart seem to worry a couple here intensely. But, their doctrine is self derived.
Titus 3:9
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law, for they are unprofitable and vain.
---Trav on 5/11/11


John:

The phrase "Christ has risen" echoes one of the most fundamental Christian principles. How can you possibly think this is a Pagan Ritual Mantra? Calling the central truth of Christianity pagan itself borders on blasphemy, if not already crossing that line.

If someone says "Hello" and "goodbye" every time they phone you, do you also scream at them and accuse them of vain repetitions of pagan rituals?
---StrongAxe on 5/10/11


understanding what the NT and other passages say about "taking God's name in vain" Will better help us understand how it applies.
In the NT the command not to take Gods name in vain is writen as this: Titus 2:5 be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

This lets us know that taking Gods name in vain is more than just what you say, or your verbal usage of His name(S) but how you behave when you call yourself a christian.
Once you have taken the name of the Lord as your own, there is an expected behaviour.
1 Timothy 6:1, that the name of God and [his] doctrine be not blasphemed.
---francis on 5/10/11


\\Even using it to offend someone.\\

To Christians, the thought of Christ's Resurrection fills the heart and soul with sweetness.

Why do you think I'm saying the ancient Paschal greeting to offend people, John? Is everything about you?

Ok to make it plain. Your post are very useless. When have you ever heard me say that anyone is saved by keeping the law? you are just making up silly stuff! If you honour your father and mother, or worship only one god is that your way of salvation?
And stop fooling yourself please! God does not call us to repentance from sin, only to have us embrace sin again. And in case you forgot: SIN is the trangression of the law, that will never change no matter what foolisness you post. It seems that you have an obsession with sin ( trangressing the law) and believe that it is OK with God.
Stop fooling yourself: Confess your trangressions of the law, and repent. Stop saying lord lord and do what he says.
---francis on 5/10/11


And so we now see how Cluny/Ignacious are using the Lords Name in Vain, by their endless MEANINGLESS repetitions of His name.

Even using it to offend someone.

Until the Pagan Ritual Mantra ends!

Once it is ended, we will see"Christ" name tossed aside and forgotten until next years Mantra.
---John on 5/9/11


Francis, the law is mentioned hundreds of times in the New Testament, but the letter of the law is quoted many times also, but it is not explained what it is. People should already know what the letter means. The letter kills in two ways, It results in a living death. Before Paul was converted, he thought he was saved by keeping the law like you, but all it did was kill his peace, joy, and hope, and it also results in spiritual death. His inability to truly keep the law sentenced him to an eternal death (Rom. 7:9-11) Rom. 5:12, Gal. 3:10) Only Jesus Christ through the agency of the holy Spirit can produce eternal life in one who believes.
---Mark_V. on 5/9/11


And here you want others to proof to you where the letter of the law in found in the New Testament? Make up your mind. You cannot be on both sides of the law.
---Mark_V. on 5/9/11
Not even going to waste time asking if you know where it is You do not. So here it is:
Romans 2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.
Titus 2:5 [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

In case you did not know THE LETTER is in the NEW TESTEMENT.

---francis on 5/9/11


Strangers will be more agreeable/tolerant of your differences, etc. if you call them by their personal name.

The closer a relationship is, the more that person will desire you to call them by their first and correct name instead of a NICKNAME or TITLE.

God feels the same way. Calling Him "GOD" or "THE CHRIST" is not so endearing/personal as using His first name (JESUS).

Just imagine how God feels that we still believe that the phrase "Oh my God" contains God's NAME ("God" is His TITLE, not His name).

"LORD" is actually an ancient title for 'master of the household' (also used in feudal times for 'master of the land', the KNIGHTS answered to THEIR LORD of the land).

I don't believe anyone should be playing games are using Christ name to get under someone's skin. He is not to be played games with. When we say and mention His name "it has to be for His glory only" not to make a mockery out of it. We, at least I, understood the first, He is Risen. But now it has become a joke to argue with.

Taking the Lord's name in vain is using it disrespectfully---Donna66

WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING!!!

Tell me Donna, when the ritual ends(Likely on Pentecost) and we no longer hear them Quack "Christisrisen".

Then at that point would it no longer be relevant/significant to these 2 Apostates that He has Risen? At that point is He no longer Risen?

WHAT IS THEIR REASON TO STOP?

Is it because now His Rising no longer deserves mentioning? Has Christ Fallen then?


Just not important anymore or irrelevant now?

Because their cult told them to stop and so "Christisrisen" is now OUT OF SIGHT/OUT OF MIND?

NO LONGER WORTH MENTIONING???

NO LONGER WORTH RESPECT???
---John on 5/8/11


Taking the Lord's name in vain is using it disrespectfully, which neither Cluny nor Ignacius do. It is just your opinion that they are "parroting" words and nothing else. You do not know that. Are they "parroting" anymore than the evangelicals who say "amen" throughout the pastor's sermon?

Genesis 4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son, and he called his name Enos: then began men to call themselves by the name of the Lord
Genesis 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair, and they took them wives of all which they chose

Once you have chosen to call yourself by the name of the lord, any behavior incling speech contrary to that, is taking God's name in vain.

Romans 2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.

Another thing to consider about taking the Lords name in vain is we represent God on this earth. We are called by His name, just as Israel. Do we carry it with disregard, consider it vain, and only carry it as a title, or do we carry it in a way that glorifies Him? Do not take the name of the Lord for wrong reasons.

It doesn't mean cussing!! Its very sad-- and almost unrecognised by Christians-- that the true meaning of this Commandment has been lost. Until around 1850, they had it right. The original meaning, which Moses had, and everybody else until recent times, is that only the Lord shall be called Jehovah, and only Jesus shall be called Jesus, and nobody else may "take the Lord's name" -- literally as a wife would take her husbands name -- in Vanity. In other words, you can't call your kid Jesus or Jehovah Smith. Recently, however, people think this Commandment is all about cussing, -- and consequently millions of Hispanic people now call their kids "Hey-soos"(= Jesus) thinking it's ok. It is sad to actually lose a Commandment!!

Yes, it is wrong to take the Lord's name in vain. God will not hold him guiltless who takes the Lord's name in vain. Jesus said by your words you will be justified and by your words you shall be condemned.

Do you think that using "in the name of Jesus" as a magic charm to get God do to what you want might be taking the Lord's name in vain?

I've thought about how people take the Lord's name in vain,Vain-no real value,worhless,In Vain,irreverent,blasphemous. I concluded,besides speech,coming to Christ,giving your life to him, repenting,beginning to live a Christian life and then turning away back into sin. As the Bible puts it in 2Peter 2:22 the Dog has turned to his vomit again,and the sow that was washed to her wallowing. In effect when they proclaimed to have accepted Christ and didn't stay it was totaly in vain to have begun without finishing. There's another form,a person who presents themself as Christian,goes through the motions serving God but in their heart they really haven't surrendered their heart and will to God,Hebrews 3:12. Christians who behave like sinners,are.

Taking the LORD's Name in vain actually means not to speak for or do something in HIS name that is evil, unethical, or just plain wrong. It will be that if you do, it will be in vain for every evil done in HIS name will added to your sins. An example is the Crusades for G-D's Honor. HE does not need you to defend HIM. We are to Glorify and make HIS name known. Not associate it with Evil acts born out of our selfishness.

Taking the Lord's name in vain is wrong it is one of the Ten commadments. If Jesus lives in your heart then you will not want to do this to our Lord. People that do this may not have been taught any better and may not relize that this is wrong. If they are truly in touch with God he will reveal it to them. They will have to answer to God and he is the judge and it is our place to witness to people and let them know what is right or wrong. Jesus is the answer and the only way is through him. If Jesus is control of you life we have no problem. We will pray that people find the Lord as their personal Savior.

Salty expressions is one thing(I do not use them myself) but taking the Lord's name in vain is very bad. However the Bible speaks of the fact that this will be readily forgiven by Lord Jesus Christ!!! Old let us say thank you to what a wonderful savior we have.

Jesus name is powerful. At His name every knee shall bow and tongue confess He is Lord. Man's heart is rebellious and our tongues can be set on fire of hell says James. Using Jesus name in vain is a way of expressing our rebellion to His Lordship and rule over our lives. It is a subconscious way of letting God know we are masters of our own lives. To me Jesus is the most special name I know.

The third commandment in the Torah in both places -- Ex.20 and Deut.5 -- actually means in the Hebrew, "You shall not swear falsely by the Name of the Lord your God." Apparently Jesus tried to abrogate this commandment entirely by telling his followers not th swear at all.

Paul warned the reader of the Bible of this very thing:2 Corinthians 11:3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Yahshua the Messiah. 4For if someone comes to you and preaches a "Jesus" other than the Yahshua we preached, or if you receive a different spirit (spirit of error) from the one you received (Spirit of Truth), or a different gospel(Trinity/Jesus/Sunday/Holidays) from the one you accepted (YHVH/Yahshua/Sabbath/Shama/Feasts/Torah), you put up with it easily enough.

"Awful words"--usually of 4 letters in English--are some of the oldest words in any language.

St. Paul and other Biblical writers were not above using a few salty expressions themselves.

YHVH did not become a Trinity. YHVH didnt take the form of a man. The true Messiah did not abolish the Feasts/Torah/Sabbaths of YHVH. You see, this "image", we call Jesus Christ (IHS) which is a pagan god, nothing more than a cunning lie and reality a "false" image of the true Messiah whose name is Yahshua. Yes, Jesus Christ IS the Anti-Christ.Yahshua was 100% born human in the flesh. He was the physical son of Joseph.Was Rabbi, Torah Master, taught the Torah, lived Torah, died on the Passover in fulfillment of Torah, and was resurrected 3 days later by YHVH on the High Holy Sabbath known as the Feast of First Fruits fulfillment the Spring Feast Cycle and powerful proof the resurrection take place on The Sabbath.
