“On Monday night, approximately one thousand people gathered at the foot of the Temple Mount for the World Creation Concert. However, what took place was not merely wonderful music accompanied by a spectacular light show: the event actually encapsulated several prophetic incidents taking place at once. In the not-so-distant future, the event may be identified as the moment a new, Biblically correct United Nations was established, potentially leading to a new era of global cooperation…
“For several months preceding the event, the Sanhedrin had worked to contact foreign governments, inviting them to take their place as representatives of the 70 nations who populated the world, listed in the Bible as the grandsons of Noah. Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico answered the call, sending high-ranking delegations to attend.
“Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin described that the concert has a vital role to play in helping the nations of the world in joining together to address these universal threats the world today.
“‘The world is being threatened in so many ways; ecologically, atomic weapons, terrorism, economically,’ Rabbi Weiss told Breaking Israel News. ‘The United Nations has failed to unite the world in any effort to cope with these issues. That is because the UN is not based on Biblical principles that unite mankind. Human rights originated in the Bible, as did laws governing war. Ecology is a Biblical concept. When the nations came to Jerusalem to pray together in the Temple, they did so in recognition of the human principles that we all share. The United Nations rejected these human principles that bind and as such, has become a political battlefield that only makes these problems worse. They have appointed human rights violators to preside over the Human Rights Council. There is no justice in the International Court of Justice.’…
“We are seeing the end of the UN, as the US and Israel separate themselves from it, ‘Rabbi Weiss said. ‘The United Nations should have collapsed long ago but it has drawn power from its decision to establish the State of Israel in 1948.’
“The Biblical Sanhedrin in Jerusalem was a gathering point for universal cooperation and justice. The high-point of the concert came when the foreign representatives went up to the stage to sign an agreement with the Sanhedrin.”
VIDEO THE JERUSALEM CONSPIRACY
A researcher in Alberta, Canada who writes informative updates on the US/Israel plan to attack Iran believes “There is more than enough evidence regarding the attack/war with Iran, looming. Probably within weeks.” (See: The Coming Storm)
On the home front, President Trump may yet declare a national state of emergency in order to secure the southern U.S. border with a steel barrier. These events, plus the inevitable civil unrest, would be the perfect storm for Trump to declare Martial Law, which would suspend the Bill of Rights. The inalienable rights of American citizens would be lost overnight: Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press, The Right to Bear Arms, the Right to Life, Liberty, and Property, the Right to a Speedy and Public Trial by Jury, with the Presumption of Innocence and Due Process under Constitutional Law and Domestic Privacy; also forfeited would be Protections from Excessive Bail, Fines, Cruel and Unusual Punishments, Unreasonable Searches and Seizures.
Christians have for the most part expressed solidarity with Trump’s genocidal crusade in the Middle East and a border wall, which may end the tidal wave of illegal immigration but will also prevent U.S. citizens from leaving the country when their Constitutional rights are abrogated. Many Christian churches have been infused with the liberal Social Gospel through government and corporate faith-based funding, which requires them to welcome sexual perversion into their congregations.
Most seminaries have been receiving these federal and corporate grants for years, which explains why young ministers today think they must ‘engage the culture’ and ‘work for the common good’ instead of preach the gospel.
The book of Revelation prophesies a period of unprecedented violence, suffering and genocide, when peace will be taken from the earth, after which a kingdom shall arise that will devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. This rebellious world will not repent of its sexual perversion despite the warnings and judgments of God,
Mankind is presently rushing headlong into this Tribulation period but large swaths of the Church seem not to notice. The Reformed think the theocracy they are building is the Kingdom of God. Instead of stanching the floodtide of sin in the culture, the apostate Church has joined the culture and is leading the human race to Judgment.
Luke 21:35 warns “For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.” The day of the Lord will take the world and the apostate Church by surprise.
NEW CALVINISTS: SETTING UP THE CHURCH
IX Marks is the church planting organization of Mark Dever, the pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist, a Southern Baptist church located on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. six blocks from the United States Capitol. Jonathan Leeman is the Editorial Director of IX Marks which ministers to a network of over 4,000 churches internationally.
Jonathan Leeman has Masters degrees from the London School of Economics and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also has a Ph.D. in “political theology” from the University of Wales which was established by Royal Charter in 1893 and whose Chancellor is Prince Charles of Wales. The London School of Economics is not found in Leeman’s various biographical profiles probably because it was funded in 1894 by the Third-Way socialist/fascist Fabian Society which established the LSE to educate and train an elite workforce to carry out the schemes of the British Eugenics Society. IX Marks, the organization of Cambridge-educated Mark Dever, equips pastors and church leaders to preach and put into practice the Social Gospel. Most of the Reformed leadership have advanced degrees from universities in the United Kingdom—Oxford, Cambridge, London School of Economics, University of Edinburgh—whose liberal theology and politics have liberalized the Church of England and the UK.
Graduates of these institutions of Marxist learning have migrated to the U.S. as agents of social change. They have infiltrated our seminaries, colleges and denominations for the purpose of shipwrecking Christian faith in America, especially of university and seminary students. The Reformed New Calvinist movement has theologically and often physically taken over Christian churches. Posturing as the “conservative resurgence” (launched in the late 70s by Banner of Truth Trust UK) Reformed operatives are now peddling every liberal theological and political position of the radical Left, including sexual perversion, abortion, Marxism, Gnosticism, racism, illegal immigration, etc. (See Thomas Littleton’s articles)
In the photo below, Mark Dever and Jonathan Leeman are speaking to pastors at the 2018 Southern Baptist Convention on the need to abandon their conservative convictions, such as pro-life, in order to advance political agendas for social justice. (See “9Marks Dever & Fabian Socialist Lecture Pastors on How to Ditch Your Pro-Life Voting Habit”)
Apparently in the Reformed Calvinist SBC a doctorate in “political theology” from a secular university qualifies one as a theologian who is competent to counsel Christian ministers about moral issues like abortion. Jonathan Leeman’s political theology degree sounds more like a religious cover for political operatives like him to move conservative Christians away from sound doctrine into liberal theology and politics. Interesting that Dever and Leeman chose to publicly advocate for pro-abortion voting as a Christian option just months before the 2018 elections which filled the vacated Republican seats in the House of Representatives and many state governments with radical liberals. Who knew that the prospect of legalizing infanticide would follow in the soon to be euthanized USA? Did Dever and Leeman have prior knowledge of this plan to legalize the murder of newborn babies? Abortion leading to infanticide will pave the legal road to euthanasia which will lead to the mass extermination of Christians, which is the subject of this report.
There are many such left-wing political operatives in the New Calvinist movement. Having assisted the ruin of the faith and morals of future generations with their pseudo apologetics, the New SBC Calvinists are now positioned to offer their predetermined alternative to conservative Christianity and Western Civilization through their Fabian Socialist spokesman, Jonathan Leeman, who also advocates for revolution in his book, Political Church: The Local Assembly as Embassy of Christ’s Rule:
“I am not positive there is biblical license for overturning an unjust government, but I think there probably is, and I believe that Genesis 9:5-6 provides that licence…
“Rebellion is justified not according to the withdrawal of consent (since consent is not what creates the obligation to obey); rebellion is justified when the government fails to do what God has obligated it to do (since God creates the obligation to obey by assigning government with its task).
“In other words, the formally designated holder of the sword has no authority to set aside the demands of the justice mechanism in the process of fulfilling its mandate, lest it boomerang back and strike him as it does the vigilante. The mere fact that a particular government is in place by God’s secret providence does not mean that all its actions or directives are morally legitimate. God gives authority to government for certain ends only, and its rule is legitimate to the extent it pursues just ends by just means. A characteristically unjust government, by virtue of its injustice, has exceeded its authorization and self-refuted its own mandate, thereby triggering the operations of God’s Noahic justice mechanism to strike back. And precisely because Scripture does not specify how a society must form a government, it just might leave a society with the freedom to topple an unjust ruler and to establish a new one by just means.”
Leeman, Jonathan. Political Church: The Local Assembly as Embassy of Christ’s Rule (Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture) (pp. 195-196). InterVarsity Press.
Political Church is not a theological treatise of “Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture” as stated in the subtitle. It is political propaganda which advocates for the replacement of secular governments, which have not produced the desired utopia, with a global theocracy. The book promotes the Jewish Polity (government by theocracy) of the Old Testament, with a flimsy, legalistic application to the New Testament Church. (Polity; 1. a form or process of civil government or constitution. 2. an organized society; a state as a political entity. New Oxford Dictionary)
“…my political theology depends upon a doctrine of two ages… Just as the state is a political institution because it has been authorized by a King to borrow and wield his own sword in the ‘age of creation’ upon rebellious subjects, so the local church is a political institution because it has been authorized by a King to borrow and wield his own office keys for declaring who is and who is not a citizen in the ‘age of new covenant.’…. Local church membership, like good works, is the mark, proof, badge or, to use citizenship language, ‘passport’ of a true Christian.” (p. 295)
This description resembles the “political theology” of the Roman Catholic Church which blended Old Testament theocratic rule with Babylonian worship. We have seen how their “church polity” has turned out. (See Mystery Babylon: Catholic or Jewish?) In fact, political theology is a course of study in Catholic universities such as the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC and Villanova University in Pennsylvania.
Jonathan Leeman’s Political Church is calculated to Judaize and politicize the Christian Church. Leeman conceives of the New Testament Church as a political institution having a legal contract with God—a ‘new covenant’ which is an extension of the old covenants between Yahweh and his former ‘subjects.’ Leeman’s version of the new covenant minimizes the personal and intimate relationship between the Jesus Christ and His Church. Salvation is a legal arrangement, a contract, after which the Christian is ‘tasked’ as a ‘citizen’ installed in the ‘body politic’ of Jesus’ ‘regime’ with the civic duty of displaying God’s righteousness to the world.
THE POLITICS OF JESUS AND HIS PEOPLE
“Jesus. We start with Jesus. The New Testament declares Jesus to be the new Adam, the offspring of Abraham, the true Israel and the son of David who will rule over Yahweh’s new covenant body politic….
“I will argue that Jesus Christ came as the new Adam to execute God’s kingdom rule through the new covenant in the salvation of God’s people, thereby establishing them individually as God’s citizens and corporately as his model body politic before the nations….
“Jesus Christ, as the new Adam, manifested God’s rule through the prophetically promised new covenant by saving God’s people, the church. Specifically, he fulfills these prophetic promises by declaring that the nations belong to him, forgiving once-rebellious subjects by offering a new covenant in his blood, installing them as citizens within his regime, tasking them with displaying the heavenly Father’s righteousness and justice in their political life together before the onlooking nations, and granting them his Spirit to these ends.” (p. 297)
Jesus’ regime? The language is absurd, portraying Jesus as a military dictator instead of a Savior. Did God so hate the world that he sent his only begotten Son to establish a ‘regime’ and a ‘political institution’ to improve his image and enforce his commands in the world?” Maybe in the Political Bible but not in the inspired Word of God.
The problem is with Leeman’s Reformed Calvinist theology, which is the man-centered Dominionist / Reconstructionist philosophy of Rousas Rushdoony that the Church must create an earthly Kingdom of God before Jesus returns. Jesus Christ is not the “new Adam,” as Leeman avers, but the “last Adam” according to Scripture. “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.” 1 Cor. 15:46 (KJV) The accurate translation of this verse is crucial to understanding the Cross, the Gospel and Christian sanctification. A very helpful exposition of 1 Cor. 15:45-47 is found in Watchman Nee’s classic, The Normal Christian Life:
“The death of the Lord Jesus is inclusive. The resurrection of the Lord Jesus is alike inclusive. We have looked at the first chapter of I Corinthians to establish the fact that we are ‘in Christ Jesus’. Now we will go to the end of the same letter to see something more of what this means. In I Corinthians 15:45,47 two remarkable names or titles are used of the Lord Jesus. He is spoken of there as ‘the last Adam’ and He is spoken of too as ‘the second man’. Scripture does not refer to Him as the second Adam but as ‘the last Adam’; nor does it refer to Him as the last Man, but as ‘the second man’. The distinction is to be noted, for it enshrines a truth of great value.
“As the last Adam, Christ is the sum total of humanity; as the second Man He is the Head of a new race. So we have here two unions, the one relating to His death and the other to His resurrection. In the first place His union with the race as ‘the last Adam’ began historically at Bethlehem and ended at the cross and the tomb. In it He gathered up into Himself all that was in Adam and took it to judgment and death. In the second place our union with Him as ‘the second man’ begins in resurrection and ends in eternity—which is to say, it never ends—for, having in His death done away with the first man in whom God’s purpose was frustrated, He rose again as Head of a new race of men, in whom that purpose shall be fully realized.
“When therefore the Lord Jesus was crucified on the cross, He was crucified as the last Adam. All that was in the first Adam was gathered up and done away in Him. We were included there. As the last Adam He wiped out the old race; as the second Man He brings in the new race. It is in His resurrection that He stands forth as the second Man, and there too we are included. ‘For if we have become united with him by the likeness of his death, we shall be also by the likeness of his resurrection’ (Romans 6:5). We died in Him as the last Adam; we live in Him as the second Man. The Cross is thus the power of God which translates us from Adam to Christ.” (The Normal Christian Life)
Jonathan Leeman’s reference to Jesus Christ as the ‘new Adam’ and ‘second Adam’ is calculated leave to the office of ‘last Adam’ vacant, to be filled by another. As Thomas Littleton wrote, “On the issue of the Last Adam – the idea of a second Adam – as if to leave the door open for another looks like the perfect door for anti Christ. There is no need for another to come. No need for a second but for the last Adam – because this is the resurrected Christ – the Prince of Life whom death could not hold, talked about in the great Resurrection chapter – 1st Corinthians 15.”
Leeman must resort to misquoting Scripture to support his false “second Adam” teaching. His misleading interpretation of the Cross of Christ continues:
“Recommissioned in Adam’s office. For our purposes here, we are interested in the fact that the church identifies with Christ in his Adamic office, and that the church is deputized as possessing a renewed Adamic commission. Just as Adam played the role of Everyman and federal head, meaning that all humanity received the commission given to him, so Christ plays the role of second Everyman and second federal head for a new humanity (see Rom 5:12-19). If, then, Adam’s office transmits to Christ, it would seem that the same office likewise transmits to Christ’s people. Greg Beale observes, It is important to recall that Jesus’s titles ‘Son of Man and ‘Son of God’ reflect respectively both the OT figures of Adam and Israel. This is because . . . Adam and Israel are two sides of one coin. Israel and its patriarchs were given the same commission as was Adam in Gen. 1:26-28. . . . The church is also identified with what it means to be the true Adam, especially in its identification with Jesus, the true Israel and last Adam.
“Just as the church receives Christ’s righteousness, so the church receives Christ’s perfect Adamic sonship. All Christians are declared and named ‘sons’ of God and the new humanity (e.g., 2 Cor 5:17; Gal 3:26, 4:6; cf. 6:16). This is our identity by virtue of the new covenant and new birth. And just as the church ‘puts on’ Christ’s righteousness, so the church ‘puts on’ Adam’s political and priestly vocation. This is our authority and work, again, by virtue of the new covenant and new birth. This combination of identity, work and authority is nothing other than an office, and it is an office for every Christian. Scripture, by referring to Christians as ‘sons’ and ‘born again’ and ‘new creations,’ commission every saint to occupy the office of priest-king with Christ.” (pp. 303-304)
“We also saw that God intended to use a special people to model for the nations what a true politics looks like. When Israel failed at this task, it was handed to the divine Son, who came to do what Adam and Israel could not do. This second Adam, new Israel and Davidic son came to rule obediently by laying down his life for the sins of the nations and rising from the grave. In so doing, he offered a new covenant in his blood, so that all who would repent and believe might receive a pardon from sin and a share in his kingly authority. To that end, he granted them the keys of the kingdom, enabling them to fulfill their covenantal responsibilities to identify themselves with God and one another, distinguish themselves from the world, fend off any serpentine intruders and pursue together the life of righteousness and justice that rightly represent the Son, the Father and the Spirit.” (p. 390)
Where does God’s Word say, “the church puts on Adam’s political and priestly vocation.” Leeman’s political theology, which is liberal theology, gives him license to expound a social gospel which is about fixing this world system. Note well the reference to tikkun olam (the repair of the universe) in the excerpt from his book below. The social gospel fosters preoccupation with worldly affairs and law-keeping… instead of the believer’s heavenly citizenship with all spiritual blessings in Christ.
Jonathan Leeman seems to have a low view of the ‘new covenant’ (lower case) as being inferior to the old covenants. The new covenant is merely added onto the series of God’s covenants—the Adamic, Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic—which are incorporated in what is (falsely) termed the Noahic Covenant.
“After the fall, God’s rule was given institutional expression through common and special covenants. His rule exists comprehensively by virtue of the fact that he is creator, which means that human life is intrinsically and comprehensively political, but these political realities formally institutionalize through the covenants. The biblical covenants provide the “constitutionalization’ and “institutionalization’ of human relationships. Daniel Elazar writes,
“The Bible necessarily holds that the covenantal relationship is the only proper basis for political organization—that is, the structured allocating of authority and power among humans—as well. In a political sense, biblical covenants take the form of constituting acts that establish the parameters of authority and its division without prescribing the constituting details of regimes.
“Thus, the Sinai covenant establishes once for all God’s kingship over Israel and the partnership between God and Israel in tikkun olam* (the repair of the universe). It does not establish any particular political regime.
“We can therefore define politics as the mediating of God’s covenantal rule, a definition that encompasses the concept both narrowly conceived (in reference to a society’s governing institutions) and broadly conceived (in reference to all of life).
“Politics narrowly conceived implements God’s sword-wielding covenantal rule invisibly through the justice mechanism of the Noahic covenant (Gen 9:5-6) and visibly through the oaths and institutions of the special covenants.
“Politics broadly conceived is the acknowledgment that all of life exists within the jurisdiction of God’s comprehensive rule or judgment (as indicated in the Adamic covenant), yet it awaits the visible performance of that judgment in the eschaton (the larger share of the Noahic covenant: Gen 9:1-3, 7-17).
“Also, a righteous politics gives rise to righteous and just political communities. The common covenants call all humankind to the citizen’s life of righteousness and justice; the special covenants bear the purpose of putting this just body politic on display as a model to the nations. They make God’s rule visible through (1) the covenantal signs, (2) the terms of the covenants and (3) the activities of salvation or judgment that they either enact or anticipate. Salvation and judgment represent the execution of God’s rule, or the asserting of his royal prerogatives.” (pp. 236-237)
[*“‘Tikkun olam’ (Hebrew for ‘world repair’) has come to connote social action and the pursuit of social justice. The phrase has origins in classical rabbinic literature and in Lurianic kabbalah, a major strand of Jewish mysticism originating with the work of the 16th-century kabbalist Isaac Luria.” (Tikkun Olam: Repairing the World)]
Citing the work of two Jewish professors of political science, Leeman elevates Jewish polity over Christian and other traditions which, they claim, emphasize “structure” or “regime” over relationships:
“The Bible does not moralize the manner in which a government should be formed or the earthly foundation of its sovereignty. In this regard, Christian political philosophers have something to learn once again from Jewish counterparts. Daniel Elazar and Stuart Cohen offer an instructive word from their own tradition: The Jewish political tradition, like every other political tradition, is concerned with the question of power and justice, but it differs from the political traditions growing out of classic Greek thought in that it begins with a concern for relationships rather than structures. More specifically, it is less concerned for the best regime than with the proper relationships between power and justice, the governors and the governed, and God and man.” (pp. 189-190).
“Elazar and Cohen argue the same. They spend the entirety of a book, The Jewish Polity, chronicling the precise path of institutional change in both the Jewish Bible and post-biblical Jewish commonwealth, while observing the common threads that run through all such changes. They observe that “no single form of political organization is mandated by Jewish law or tradition”; rather, “a Jewish polity is one which embodies a proper set of political relationships rather than any particular structure or regime,” and “there is latitude in choosing the forms of government as long as the proper relationships . . . are preserved.” (p. 230)
May we ask, was the Jewish nation on display in the Old Testament a just body politic until God overthrew the whole system in 70 A.D.? What about the “post-biblical Jewish commonwealth”? Have the Jewish people been a stellar example of righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ since they crucified Him? By what standard does Jonathan Leeman evaluate “a proper set of political relationships?” Does God require a “proper set of political relationships” or does He require people to be in a proper relationship with Himself through faith in His Son?
Under the Noahic Covenant, the stated divinely ordained purpose of human governments is to enforce the worship of God and the religion of the Old Testament.
“Specifically, I will argue (1) that God rules over all humanity after the fall as a king over subjects with the power of the sword, requiring obedience and worship; (2) that he uses covenants to enact and publicize that rule; (3) that he specifically uses the common covenants to command all people to worship him by acting as his image-bearing citizens; and (4) that he specifically uses the special covenants to create a people who will model true citizenship and worship. The key lies in properly relating the common covenants (the covenants with Adam and Noah) and the special covenants (the Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic and new covenants)…” (pp. 180-181)
“Seventh, the governments of this world exist to aid and abet the cause of true worship by providing the platform for the activity of Adamic citizenship… The proximate goal of government may be judgment. But this proximate goal must not be separated from the ultimate goal, which is to help subjects become citizens and worshipers.
“…it makes no sense to say that the Noahic covenant as a whole merely serves ‘common cultural concerns’ and not the cause of worship or religion. Governments invisibly mediate God’s rule over matters of temporal judgment for the larger purpose of abetting God’s plan of salvation. They exist to implement his judgments, which is why Oliver O’Donovan goes as far as to say that ‘within every political society there occurs, implicitly, an act of worship of divine rule. When people assent to a government’s decisions, they implicitly assent to God and thereby honor him. Indeed, this is the very nature of mediated rule. Also, relatedly, common cultural concerns like politics can never be separated from worship. People’s political and cultural convictions always root in their valuations of who or what deserves worship.” (pp. 208-209)
Jesus, however, said that true worship is in the Spirit and sincerity, not in religious ceremonies to be seen of men…“the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” John 4:23 God rejects worship that is coerced, however, Lucifer will force mankind to worship himself during the Tribulation period. “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Rev. 13:15
God does not command all people to worship Him but He does command all men everywhere to repent. Acts 17:30
Where did Jonathan Leeman come up with this Judaized version of Christianity?
The Chabad Lubavitch Worldwide Institute of Noahide Code presents the same false interpretation of the Old Testament covenants that Jonathan Leeman presents in his book, except the Chabad does not mention their plan for New Testament Church.
“G-d gave the first six commandments to Adam and Hava (Eve), the first human beings.
“These commandments were repeated to Noah, and a seventh commandment was added, when, after the Flood, G-d established the Covenant of the Rainbow with Noah and all of the world’s creatures. This covenant is not dependent on mankind’s observance of these Seven Laws of Noah. Rather, the Noahide Code established the context and the eventual goal for a renewed world in which this covenant could be the open and enduring expression of G-d’s love for His creation…
“The entire Book of Genesis, and the Book of Exodus up to and including the arrival of the Israelites at Mount Sinai, were dictated by G-d to Moses when they arrived there. There was then a first covenant made between G-d and the Israelites on that first part of the Written Torah, which included their acceptance of the Noahide Code. Thus, the Divine moral code of Seven (Universal) Commandments was renewed, after it had become neglected by the rest of the nations. That was four days before the Ten (Jewish) Commandments were spoken openly by G-d to all of the Israelites, at which point they became the Jewish people.
“At Mount Sinai, G-d taught the essentials of the Torah’s precepts through Moses, and this is called the Oral Torah. Included in this are the details of G-d’s directive for all Gentiles to observe their Seven Noahide Commandments. These details, as G-d specified them to Moses, are the true foundation of the universal Noahide Code. A righteous Gentile merits to receive a place in the eternal future World to Come, in the Messianic Era, through observance of these commandments. That is a Gentile’s part in the Torah of Moses, which is G-d’s “Tree of Life” (Proverbs 3:18). It all begins with recognizing the perfect Unity of the Creator.”
The Institute of Noahide Code is an NGO in Special Consultative Status of the United Nations. See also the Institute of Noahide Code on Facebook.
On the list of UN NGOs is also the Ethics & Religious Liberties Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. As previously mentioned, Jonathan Leeman is the Editorial Director for the IX Marks church planting operation of Mark Dever, who is pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist which is Southern Baptist. Leeman also has a Masters degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, is an adjunct professor and lecturer at SBTS and is affiliated with the ERLC.
THE NOAHIDE LAWS
Professor Leeman does not enumerate the laws contained in the Noahic Covenant except to state that they incorporate the commands of the covenants God made with Adam, Noah, Moses, Abraham and David. The Jewish Encyclopedia states that 7 Laws were derived from the Torah by Jewish Rabbis who codified them as the Seven Noachian Laws and made them binding on all mankind. These seven laws actually originated in the Babylonian Talmud.
By: Isidore Singer, Julius H. Greenstone
The Seven Laws.
“Laws which were supposed by the Rabbis to have been binding upon mankind at large even before the revelation at Sinai, and which are still binding upon non-Jews. The term Noachian indicates the universality of these ordinances, since the whole human race was supposed to be descended from the three sons of Noah, who alone survived the Flood. Although only those laws which are found in the earlier chapters of the Pentateuch, before the record of the revelation at Sinai, should, it would seem, be binding upon all mankind, yet the Rabbis discarded some and, by hermeneutic rules or in accordance with some tradition (see Judah ha-Levi, ‘Cuzari,’ iii. 73), introduced others which are not found there. Basing their views on the passage in Gen. ii. 16, they declared that the following six commandments were enjoined upon Adam: (1) not to worship idols; (2) not to blaspheme the name of God; (3) to establish courts of justice; (4) not to kill; (5) not to commit adultery; and (6) not to rob (Gen. R. xvi. 9, xxiv. 5; Cant. R. i. 16; comp. Seder ‘Olam Rabbah, ed. Ratner, ch. v. and notes, Wilna, 1897; Maimonides, ‘Yad,’ Melakim, ix. 1). A seventh commandment was added after the Flood—not to eat flesh that had been cut from a living animal (Gen. ix. 4). Thus, the Talmud frequently speaks of ‘the seven laws of the sons of Noah,’ which were regarded as obligatory upon all mankind, in contradistinction to those that were binding upon Israelites only (Tosef., ‘Ab. Zarah, ix. 4; Sanh. 56a et seq.”
Like Jonathan Leeman’s Noahic Covenant, the Noahide Laws are an abridgement and distortion of the Noahic Covenant plus the Mosaic Law. (“As in the days of Noë” Matt. 24:37). What might be the source of Leeman’s deceitful handling of God’s Word? The Political Theology Network lists the Talmud among the “classical” texts of political theology. The Babylonian Talmud, which is the bible of modern Judaism, permits the sacrifice of children to Moloch, also called infanticide, which was just made legal in New York. Also commended in the Talmud are pedophilia and bestiality. The Talmud states that Gentiles are subhuman animals and blasphemes Jesus Christ as the illegitimate son of a harlot and a libertine father. “Yeshu” was also a magician who was initiated into the secret doctrine and deceived the people by means of miracles. (See: The Talmud Unmasked, also a review of this book, Genuine verses from the Talmud.)
The Talmud encourages Jews to commit all manner of criminal activity without fear of punishment, but the Jewish Encyclopedia states that the penalty for Gentiles who violate even one of the 7 Noahide Laws is death. Note the disparity. “Due process” is not required in the criminal prosecution of a Noachid / Gentile and the death penalty does not apply to Jews,
“In the elaboration of these seven Noachian laws, and in assigning punishments for their transgression, the Rabbis are sometimes more lenient and sometimes more rigorous with Noachidæ than with Israelites. With but a few exceptions, the punishment meted out to a Noachid for the transgression of any of the seven laws is decapitation, the least painful of the four modes of execution of criminals (see Capital Punishment). The many formalities of procedure essential when the accused is an Israelite need not be observed in the case of the Noachid.
The latter may be convicted on the testimony of one witness, even on that of relatives, but not on that of a woman. He need have had no warning (‘hatra’ah’) from the witnesses; and a single judge may pass sentence on him (ib. 57a, b; ‘Yad,’ l.c. ix. 14). With regard to idolatry, he can be found guilty only if he worshiped an idol in the regular form in which that particular deity is usually worshiped; while in the case of blasphemy he may be found guilty, even when he has blasphemed with one of the attributes of God’s name—an action which, if committed by an Israelite, would not be regarded as criminal (ib. 56b; see Blasphemy).
“The Noachidæ are required to establish courts of justice in every city and province; and these courts are to judge the people with regard to the six laws and to warn them against the transgression of any of them (ib.; ‘Yad,’ l.c. ix. 14, x. 11; comp. Naḥmanides on Gen. xxxiv. 13, where the opinion is expressed that these courts should judge also cases other than those coming under the head of the six laws, as, for example, larceny, assault and battery, etc.). In the case of murder, if the Noachid slay a child in its mother’s womb, or kill a person whose life is despaired of (‘ṭerefah’), or if he cause the death of a person by starving him or by putting him before a lion so that he can not escape, or if he slay a man in self-defense, the Noachid is guilty of murder and must pay the death-penalty, although under the same circumstances an Israelite would not be executed (ib. 57b; ‘Yad,’ l.c. ix. 4; comp. ‘Kesef Mishneh,’ ad loc.).”
The Noahide Laws are also found in Freemasonry, the secret fraternal organization which descended from the medieval order of the Knights Templar—the Knights of the Order of the Temple of Solomon. According to Albert Mackey’s History of Freemasonry, Rev. James Anderson, the Presbyterian minister and theologian who wrote the Constitutions of Freemasonry, developed the Noachide legend from Ancient Egyptian mystery religion of Hermes Trismegistus, author of the Hermeticum, and the moral laws for Freemasons which were derived from the Rabbinic laws of Talmudic Judaism. Mackey wrote concerning the importance of Noah and the Noahide laws in the Constitutions and Charges of Freemasonry.
“It is not, therefore, surprising that Noah should have become a mystical personage, and that the modern Speculative Masons should have sought to incorporate some reference to him in their symbolic system…
“In the Dowland MS. and in all the other manuscripts of the Legend of the Craft that succeeded it, the reference to Noah is exceedingly meager, his name only being mentioned, and that of his sons, from whom descended Hermes, who found one of the pillars and taught the science thereon described to other men…
“Anderson, who, in the Book of Constitutions modified and enlarged the old Craft Legends at his pleasure, calls Noah and his three sons ‘all Masons true,’ and says that they brought over from the flood the traditions and arts of the antediluvians and communicated them to their growing offspring. And this was perhaps the first time that the Patriarch was presented to the attention of the Fraternity in a Masonic character.
“Anderson seems to have cherished this idea, for in the second edition of the Constitutions he still further develops it by saying that the offspring of Noah, ‘as they journeyed from the East (the plains of Mount Ararat, where the Ark rested) toward the West, they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and dwelt there together as NOACHIDÆ, or sons of Noah.’ And, he adds, without the slightest historical authority, that this word, ‘Noachidæ’ was ‘the first name of Masons, according to some old traditions.’…
“Having thus invented and adopted the name as the distinctive designation of a Mason, he repeats it in his second edition or revision of the ‘Old Charges’ appended to the Book of Constitutions. The first of these charges, in the Constitutions of 1723, contained this passage: ‘A Mason is obliged by his tenure to obey the moral law.’ In the edition of 1738, Dr. Anderson has, without authority, completed the sentence by adding the words ‘as a true Noachida.’…
“About that time, or a little later, a degree was fabricated on the continent of Europe, bearing the name of ‘Patriarch Noachite,’ one peculiar feature of which was that it represented the existence of two classes or lines of Masons, the one descending from the Temple of Solomon, and who were called Hiramites, and the other tracing their origin to Noah, who were styled Noachites… the term…has become of so common use that Noachida and Freemason have come to be considered as synonymous terms.
“What does this word really signify, and how came Anderson to adopt it as a Masonic term? The answers to these questions are by no means difficult.
“Noahchida, or Noachides, from which we get the English Noachite, is a gentilitial name, or a name designating the member of a family or race… And so Noachides, or its synonymous Noachida or Noachites, means descendant of Noah.
“But why, it may be asked, are the Freemasons called the descendants of Noah? Why has he been selected alone to represent the headship of the Fraternity? I have no doubt that Dr. Anderson was led to the adoption of the word by the following reason.
“After Noah’s emergence from the ark, he is said to have promulgated seven precepts for the government of the new race of men of whom he was to be the progenitor.
“These seven precepts are: 1, to do justice; 2, worship God; 3, abstain from idolatry; 4, preserve chastity; 5, do not commit murder; 6, do not steal; 7, do not eat the blood.
“These seven obligations, says the Rev. Dr. Raphall, are held binding on all men, inasmuch as all are descendants of Noah, and the Rabbins maintain that he who observes them, though he be not an Israelite, has a share in the future life, and it is the duty of every Jew to enforce their due observance whenever he has the power to do so.
“In consequence of this, the Jewish religion was not confined during its existence in Palestine to the Jewish nation only, but proselytes of three classes were freely admitted. One of these classes was the ‘proselytes of the gate.’… They were not admitted to all the privileges of the Jewish religion… So that, although they were Noachidæ, they were not considered equal to the true children of Abraham.
“Anderson, who was a theologian, was, of course, acquainted with these facts, but with a more tolerant spirit than the Jewish law, which gave converted Gentiles only a qualified reception, he was disposed to admit into the full fellowship of Freemasonry all the descendants of Noah who would observe the precepts of the Patriarch, these being the only moral laws inculcated by Masonry.” (Mackey, pp. 406-410)
VIDEO THE NOAHIDE WORLD ORDER
On January 17, 1951, the Orthodox Jewish Chabad-Lubavitch elected Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson to be the Lubavitch “Rebbe.” The “Rebbe,” who is regarded by the International Lubavitch Movement as the “messiah,” was also recognized as a moral leader by many U.S. presidents, starting with President Richard Nixon. According to the Chabad-Lubavitch, the Rebbe enjoyed an especially close relationship with Ronald Reagan, who began the process of giving legislative status to the Lubavitchers’ “ Seven Universal Laws”:
“The President was an early and enthusiastic adherent of the Rebbe’s call to make all people aware of the Seven Universal Laws, based on the belief in a Supreme Being. The Rebbe’s call for a moment of silence in the public schools, and his persistent belief that America must export to the world faith-based moral values, were among the themes that found a welcoming ear in President Reagan.”
In 1982, in honor of the 80th birthday of Rebbe Menachem Schneerson, President Reagan, an Honorary Scottish Rite Mason, issued a declaration, which Congress confirmed, that April 4 would become a National Day of Reflection on the Seven Noahide Laws as a moral code for mankind.
“One shining example for people of all faiths of what education ought to be is that provided by the Lubavitch movement, headed by Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, a worldwide spiritual leader who will celebrate his 80th birthday on April 4, 1982. The Lubavitcher Rebbe’s work stands as a reminder that knowledge is an unworthy goal unless it is accompanied by moral and spiritual wisdom and understanding. He has provided a vivid example of the eternal validity of the Seven Noahide Laws, a moral code for all of us regardless of religious faith. May he go from strength to strength.
“In recognition of the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s 80th birthday, the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled have issued House Joint Resolution 447 to set aside April 4, 1982, as a ‘National Day of Reflection.
“NOW, THEREFORE, I, RONALD REAGAN, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim April 4, 1982, as National Day Reflection.”
Nine years later, in 1991, the Seven Noahide Laws became Public Law 102-14 after a vote by the U.S. Congress on the recommendation of Reagan’s successor, President George H. W. Bush, a member of the Masonic Order of Skull & Bones (’48). Before a joint session of Congress, President Bush honored Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, the now deceased “messiah” of the Lubavitch Movement, by establishing the observance of Education Day, USA. This national observance was intended “to return the world to the moral and ethical values contained in the Seven Noahide Laws.” In reality, P.L.102-14 established the Talmud as the supreme Law of the Land.
Jared Kushner – Vice President of Friends of Chabad at Harvard
All U.S. Presidents since Richard Nixon have endorsed the Chabad Lubavitch Noahide legislation which the U.S. Congress passed as Public Law 102—14 (H.J. Res. 104) on March 20, 1991. Furthermore, the Lubavitcher Universal Institute of Noahide Code, UN NGO (ECOSOC), being also an international movement, has been endorsed globally by world leaders who will be representing their countries in the Sanhedrin’s Organization of 70 Nations in Jerusalem.
“Other world leaders have joined the call for further observance and knowledge of these laws. For example, Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Union wrote (in July, 2014) that he seeks greater ‘dissemination of the universal values known as the Noahide laws’ and Major General Michael Jeffery, Governor General of Australia, lamenting family breakdowns and drug and alcohol abuse in modern society in a 2008 letter wrote that he believed that observing the fundamental values of the Noahide Laws can be an antidote to such ills of society.”
The Chabad Lubavitch claims that Jews enforcing the Noahide Laws and overseeing their execution will reverse the moral degeneration of mankind and restore the world to the pristine conditions that existed in the Garden of Eden before the fall of Adam and Eve. Their marketing ploy is that their utopian “new world order” of peace and universal brotherhood will reverse the moral collapse and the global chaos engulfing mankind.
“Rabbi Yoel Schwartz, president of the Sanhedrin’s Court for the Noahides, has been charged with preparing the declaration, called “The Song of Israel and the World,” that would describe the spiritual basis for the organization…
“Humanity created religions such as Christianity and Islam that served as instruments throughout history to bring humanity closer to this great day, when everyone would recognize the God of the world that was revealed on Mount Sinai in a desert that belongs to no people…
“We see God’s hand clearly in the miracle of the Jewish state that arose again two thousand years after its destruction. It is incumbent upon all those who accompany us to try as much as possible to spread the belief according to the prophets, just as the Jews guarded and observed their words and to prevent, God forbid, the spread of man-made religions. Those who do so must also aid the Jews in observing what God commanded them. God required of the Jews an additional amount, more than he required from the other nations, since the Jews will serve as the priests of the mankind. And the other nations should not, God forbid, try to influence his people to join their religions.”
“Rabbi Dov Stein, secretary of the Sanhedrin, described the need to replace the United Nations: ‘We now live in an era when threats are global and not limited to one country. This is true of weapons, environmental issues, and even social issues. The solutions must come from a universal effort. The United Nations has failed in its mandate by rejecting God as the creator and the Noahide Laws common to all of mankind.’
“As an example, Rabbi Stein described the resolution being drafted to make abortions and assisted suicides a ‘universal human right’ which the rabbi said violated the Noahide law prohibiting murder.
“‘They have rejected the basics of humanity that were given at Sinai,’ he said. ‘We have to re-educate the world in order to address these issues. We need a universal organization that will return to the Bible, re-educate the world. This is not a religious initiative. This is a national initiative with each nation bringing its special aspect, all nations joining together in Jerusalem, where the world was created.’”
Unfortunately, the real agenda of the Sanhedrin is not peace and justice for all but a dystopian world disorder that will destroy civilization.
According to the Noahide Laws, Christians who worship Jesus Christ are guilty of idolatry.
The Noachides & Rome’s Chief Rabbi, Riccardo Di Segni
“In Rome, on January 17, 2002, in the Lecture hall of the Major Roman Pontifical Seminary, a meeting was organized by the Diocese of Rome, part of the Day of Jewish-Christian dialogue. Present on the Catholic side were Cardinal Jorge Maria Mejia and Msgr. Rino Fisichella, and on the Jewish side, Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni, who replaced Rabbi Elio Toaff as Chief Rabbi of Rome…
“Rabbi Di Segni…explains [the seven precepts that all noachides must respect]:
“These rules are: interdiction of all worship except monotheism, interdiction on blasphemy, the obligation to form tribunals, the interdiction on homicide, theft, adultery, and incest, and the interdiction on eating food torn from living animals.
“…The Rabbi’s attention is completely fixed on the first precept, that of monotheism: ‘As to the monotheist cult, apparently, it poses no doubt for the major religions.’ Aren’t Judaism, Christianity and Islam defined, in post-conciliar language that has become colloquial today, as ‘the three major monotheist religions’? In fact, Di Segni sees no difficulty in defining Muslims as strict and even circumcised monotheists. But, as to Christians, he has some doubts….
Christians: monotheists or idolators?
“This is where Di Segni—who is the author of the re-publication of the Toledoths Jehsu, under the new title, Il Vangelo del Ghetto [The Gospel of the Ghetto], with the Toledoths Jehsu being the most inflammatory Jewish legends against Jesus (1)—‘speaks clearly’ to the prelates who heard him:
“At the point we have now reached, it is necessary to make a clarification on Jewish theology, which, on the subject of monotheism and how it is lived by Christianity, gives rise to a debate that is essentially a dilemma. The point in question is in view of establishing whether Jesus’ divinity can be compatible, for a non-Jew (because for a Jew it is absolutely not) with the monotheistic concept.
“In other words: The Jew who would become a Christian, thus then believing in the divinity of Jesus, would cease to be a monotheist in order to become an idolater. Must one say the same thing of a non-Jew? Is believing in Jesus’ divinity a sin of idolatry, a violation of the first precept of the Noachide law? Rabbi Di Segni advises:
“‘As to be expected, in Jewish theology, the answer to this question is not unanimous: some firmly deny it, others place certain conditions on it. The consequence is that, according to the literal opinion, the Christian would not be on the path of salvation’ since he is guilty of idolatry…
“Di Segni concludes: ‘If one must literally apply the Noachide system of laws, it [the punishment of death] would be applied to all, so that the Noachides might observe it. Likewise, the punishment of death would apply to what treats forbidding the worship of strange gods,’ in view of monotheism.”

The Chief Rabbi of Rome was putting the Roman Catholic hierarchy on notice that the Jewish elite, which even now controls the world from behind the scenes, will soon have legal authority to prosecute and execute Christians for the crime of idolatry. According to the Sodalitium article, not one of the Vatican prelates protested the agenda of the Jews: “Today, the unthinkable has been realized. But the Cardinals present at the lecture of…Rabbi Di Segni, keep silent.” Nor did the prelates question the Jewish power in a court of law.
In a 2006 meeting on Rome’s Capitol Hill, the same Rabbi di Segni who threatened the execution of those who worship Jesus Christ, met with Roman Catholic, Muslim and Jewish leaders in a show of interfaith unity. What do the leaders of Roman Catholicism, Islam and Jewry have in common? Are they conspiring to enforce the Noahide Laws to eliminate their common enemy, Christians and Christianity?

Three top religious representatives – Di Segni, Salem, and Poupard – gathered Tuesday in a symbolic meeting to present a new magazine and called for renewed interreligious dialogue, only days after Pope Benedict XVI’s remarks about Islam and violence prompted anger in part of the Muslim world.

In 2013, on March 20, which was the feast of Passover, Rabbi de Signi was warmly welcomed at the Vatican by Pope Francis.
“Here is a translation of the note that Pope Francis sent to the Chief Rabbi of Rome, Riccardo di Segni, for the feast of Passover, which starts today at sundown. The Holy Father met Rabbi di Segni on March 20, during his audience with delegations from other Christian confessions and non-Christian religions.
“A few days on from our meeting, and with renewed gratitude for your having desired to honor the celebration of the beginning of my ministry with your presence and that of other distinguished members of the Jewish community, I take great pleasure in extending my warmest best wishes to you and Rome’s entire Jewish community on the occasion of the Great Feast of Pesach. May the Almighty, who freed His people from slavery in Egypt to guide them to the Promised Land, continue to deliver you from all evil and to accompany you with His blessing. I ask you to pray for me, as I assure you of my prayers for you, confident that we can deepen [our] ties of mutual esteem and friendship. – FRANCIS [Translation by Vatican Radio]” (Zenit)
ORTHODOX JEWISH YESHIVAS
Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, Orthodox Jewish yeshivas have been educating Jews about the forthcoming Jewish monarchy, their Jewish privilege and the draconian Noahide laws. The Kingdom of Israel will be the Antichrist’s servile slave state into which the damnable heresy of Dominionist / Kingdom Theology of the Calvinists is leading those who believe their false teachings.
“Having a king seems like such a simple concept. Instead of the tiresome processes of democracy, a king can be anointed – a single sovereign with extraordinary rights who can enslave prisoners of war and do as he pleases. No elections and no High Court of Justice.
“The second part of “Torat Hamelech” (“The King’s Torah”) – written by rabbis from the Od Yosef Hai yeshiva in the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar – is written in the language of halakha (Jewish religious law) and quotes Jewish sources, while revealing the secret aspirations of the most extremist settlers.
“The compendium is devoted entirely to laws pertaining to “the public and the kingdom.” In other words, to the establishment of a religious-Jewish monarchy that will replace secular democracy in Israel. It describes a world in which the king is omnipotent, owning slaves and handmaidens. A world in which Jews have extra rights and non-Jews cannot hold public office; a world in which there is no private property (everything belongs to the king) and rebels are put to death…
“The first volume of “The King’s Torah” concerned laws relating to life and death between Jews and non-Jews. It detailed the laws that permit the killing of non-Jews under different circumstances – such as during wartime, or when a non-Jew threatens a Jew.
“The new volume gives a set of – totally dystopian – laws that will prevail in the kingdom of Israel. It discusses how the king will be chosen; what his rights will be; and what rights (if any) his subjects will have…
“The first chapters in the second volume of “The King’s Torah” dwell on the importance of anointing an Israeli king, and how he is to be chosen. “Everybody needs a king,” the text explains, quoting Pirkei Avot: “If not for awe of the king, people would eat each other alive.” The king is, naturally, an authoritative leader. The power of the kingdom is based on the people’s need for it to exist. The king is “given power to take care of himself, not just the public partnership,” they explain – and this is for the greater good, because “the king encompasses the entire nation, and the good of the nation depends upon him.”
“Maimonides (also known as the Rambam), the authors note, writes that gentiles who respond to the call to peace and immediately agree to convert need to understand that they will remain inferior and unfit for any office in Israel. The Rambam’s intention, they clarify, was that gentiles should be treated with compassion, but should not participate in government.
“Regarding non-Jews who do not observe the Seven Laws of Noah, they add that the Rambam says gentiles we conquer become like slaves to us; it is permissible not to return a loan to a gentile, since the failure to involve them in decisions amounts to less than expropriating a loan as it does not involve financial loss.
“According to WikiNoah. a United Noachide Council is training Yeshiva students from every country to be Noachide Judges:
“One of the primary organization’s goals and future purpose is to support a democratically run General Noachide Council that represents the interests and needs of ‘All’ Noachide Communities throughout the world, and ultimately to support a Supreme United Noachide Council composed of only qualified Noachide judges which will have graduated from a yeshiva for B’nei Noach in Israel.
“Branch UNC, Inc. organizations are in process of formation at various locations throughout the world. The goal of the UNC, Inc. organization is to have branches in every country….
“The goals of the United Noachide Council are:
“To set up a democratically run Noachide Council, which will seek to sponsor Noachide Yeshiva students from every Noachide Country in the world to study to become fully qualified Noachide Judges. A five to ten year Hebrew only program of study in Noachide and Oral Laws is currently being formulated and will be administered by Various Orthodox Rabbis, and will be located in Israel.”
VIDEO THE NOAHIDE DECEPTION
The Orthodox Jewish yeshivas are also teaching Christians. This is a trap for Zionist and Messianic Christians. They will not be learning the Torah but the oral traditions and commentaries of the Rabbis in the Talmud and Jewish magic in the Kabbalah!
Yeshivas for Christians? Evangelicals Flock to Jewish Learning Centers in Israel
Whether online or at actual brick-and-mortar facilities in the Holy Land, thousands of evangelical Christians are increasingly turning to Jewish educators in pursuit of ‘authentic Torah teaching’
“It’s become a phenomenon,” Rivkah Lambert Adler, an Orthodox-Jewish educator, told Haaretz. “What we’re seeing is a profound hunger and thirst among Christians for authentic Torah teaching.”
Haaretz said Lambert Adler, who published a book on the subject last year called “Ten From the Nations: Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews,” said many evangelicals “see the Jewish people as leaders in Bible scholarship and as individuals who are able to open the door to a better understanding of the Hebraic roots of their own faith.”
One of the first ventures of its kind, Root Source, was launched in April 2014 by Gidon Ariel, an Orthodox Jew, and Bob O’Dell, a Christian philanthropist and high-tech entrepreneur.
Online subscribers to Root Source can access prerecorded lectures on topics such as biblical Hebrew, women in the Bible, Jewish prayer, the Holy Temple, God, Moses and the Book of Proverbs.
Founder AnaRina Heymann says there is “a genuine and growing wave of interest from pro-Israel Christians, and we have a responsibility to respond and engage through the common ground of biblical narrative – which in turn provides them with advocacy tools to stand with us against the growing wave of anti-Semitism in the world.”…
Lambert Adler estimates that “a few thousand” Christians have participated in classes offered by this new crop of yeshivas now open to them. The only hindrance to growth, she said, is the lack of qualified and available teachers.
She acknowledged that Orthodox Jews in general tend to be “very defensive about Christians.”
“We tend not to trust them, we tend to think they have a missionizing agenda 100 percent of the time, and we tend to want them to just leave us alone,” she said.

RIGHTING OF WRONGS SEEN

New Statement on Question After War
October 6, 1940
“In the first public declaration on the Jewish question since the outbreak of the war, Arthur Greenwood, member without portfolio in the British War Cabinet, assured the Jews of the United States that when victory was achieved an effort would be made to found a new world order based on the ideals of ‘justice and peace.’
“Mr. Greenwood, who is Deputy Leader of the British Labor party, declared that in the new world the conscience of civilized humanity would demand that the wrongs suffered by the Jewish people in so many countries should be righted.’ He added that after the war an opportunity would be given to Jews everywhere to make a ‘distinctive and constructive contribution’ in the rebuilding of the world.” continue…
“The Jews see the destruction of their enemies as part of the deliverance of their god. They consider their actions as part of God’s divine plan for the destruction of the Amalekites. The deliverance of the Jews from all enemies became part of the plan for all ages. The Jews were to always be delivered from their enemies through their own actions. They did not wait for God to act. They took action unto themselves and asked God to bless it. It has been thus ever since. There is no turning the other cheek. There is no forgiving enemies or praying for those who despitefully used them. There is only death, and the death of their enemies meant God had blessed them.
“Unfortunately, Christians believe the same thing. They too expect God to deliver the Jews from all modern enemies through overwhelming fire power. The death of innocents is just God’s blessing on the Jews. The Feast of Purim is from where this idea comes. God is expected to perform for “His” people regardless of repentance or righteousness. It is true the people fasted, but no where is it recorded that the fast led to a deeper knowledge of God and repentance from sin. That is because the Jew does not have any knowledge of personal sin. All sin is national. According to the Rabbis, Jews are ‘saved’ by their own blood. This destruction of their enemies by the Jews is known as the law of vendetta. We can see this law enacted every day in modern Israel. That is what happens when Jews come into political and military power. All who oppose them are marked for destruction and God will bless it.
“The law-of-vendetta is a blood feud. There is no ending it. It is the Jewish Hatfields and McCoys. The law is based on old Babylonian law. It has found its way into modern jurisprudence under the name lex talionis, or law of retaliation. The Bible calls it an ‘eye for an eye.’ This means that the punishment should be equal to the offence. Of course, Jewish retaliation is always 10 times greater than the offence. That, too, was evident in the Book of Esther. Revenge is a trait so ingrained so deeply into the Jewish consciousness that it is almost genetic. A Jew never forgives and never forgets. They still avenge supposed wrongs to their tribe committed 1,000 or 2,000 years ago.
