The Synagogue of Satan (Part II)
The Jews Cursed Themselves
When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but
that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before
the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see
ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on
“His blood be on us, and on our children”, what a strange and profound statement to make. They were so certain that Christ was not their messiah that they took His blood, the same blood that washes away all sins, as a curse upon their heads and their descendants. Was this merely a tragic mistake?
No, they denied Christ intentionally! You see, those who had Christ crucified knew that He was the Son of God. How do we know that? First, because scripture tells us that although they accused Christ of blasphemy (For claiming He was the Son of God), it was actually for the sake of jealousy that they delivered Christ to Pilate (Matthew 27:18 KJV).
In addition, when Christ told the Pharisees that they had blasphemed the Holy Spirit by saying He healed by the prince of demons (Beelzebub) it could only be because they knew in their hearts that it was a lie (Matthew 12:22-32 KJV). One cannot blaspheme the Holy Spirit out of ignorance. These Jews made a conscious decision to reject Christ as their messiah because they were of the synagogue of Satan. As we can see, the consequences of these Jews speaking this curse over their descendants were grave indeed.
Blindness of the Jews Ushers in the Times of the Gentiles
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant
of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness
in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
They say when God closes one door He opens another. As tragic as it was that the Jews rejected their Messiah it was always part of God's plan in order to let the Gentiles enter in (Romans 11:11 KJV). This is also illustrated in Christ's parable of Matthew 22:1-14.Take note, the everlasting covenant was not canceled, but was put on hold until the 'times of the Gentiles' come to an end. This will only happen once the 'fullness of the Gentiles' comes in, That is to say, this dispensation will not come to an end until every last Gentile who was chosen from the foundation of the earth has turned to Christ. He has become the vine, and now both Gentile and Jew are grafted in through Him.
Judaism is Now a Cult
The law and the prophets were until John: since that
time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
Another inconvenient truth that isn't preached to Christians is the fact that the moment John started preaching baptism for the remission of sins was a fork in the road for the children of Israel. Their Messiah had come, and they either got baptized and went on to accept Jesus as their Messiah like the disciples did, or they stayed in what was now a dead religion, a cult. There is no longer any salvation through keeping the law, and there never will be again.
Even Some “Jews by Nature” Have Been Rejected
We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the
It is estimated that around 80% of those considered to be Jews in the world today are actually Ashkenazi. However, it is only God's standard of who are His chosen people that is of concern to Christians, and that is plainly limited to those who are born of Abraham's seed. But even amongst these 'Jews by nature' there are certain ones who are rejected by God.
I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to
kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have
seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto
them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But
now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have
heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then
said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, [even]
God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I
proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye cannot hear my word.
Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because
there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell [you] the truth,
ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the
truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye
therefore hear [them] not, because ye are not of God.
The above passage of scripture is very telling. Take note that these Pharisees attempt to claim that they are Jews by birthright, but Jesus denies they are Abraham's children. You see, to be considered amongst His chosen you must not only be a Jew by nature, but accept Christ as Messiah. The Ashkenazis are not only rejected for their race but their religion which is not Judaism, but Kabbalah. We can see why 'Synagogue of Satan' is such a fitting description. Reality check folks, any person who calls themselves a Jew but denies Christ is their Messiah come in the flesh is of the 'Synagogue of Satan'.
Will the Real Jewish People Please Stand Up?
What the world considers a Jew and God are two things entirely. Can we agree that it's only God's opinion that matters? We need look no further than our Strong's Lexicon (H3064) to see that according to God the word “Jew” always referred to the children of Abraham exclusively.
And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob,
but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast
The phrase 'Children of Israel' appears no less than 600 times in the King James Bible, and for good reason. When we look up the word “Israel” in Strong's Concordance (H3478) we see that this name was given by God to Jacob and also used to refer to his descendants. In biblical times it was also used as the name of the land that God gave specifically to the Israelites, not all Jews.
I remember a pastor who used to say “Just because a mouse is in a cookie jar doesn't make him a cookie”. The same can be said for modern day Israel, because not everyone who says they are Jews really are (Revelation 2:9 KJV). I am a Gentile, if I move to Israel I won't suddenly become an Israelite. There is a world of difference between being a modern day Jew and an Israelite. Facts are facts: as I mentioned previously it is estimated that 80% of the Jews in the world today are Ashkenazi. They are Europeans who chose to follow Judaism as their religion. They are not Jews at all according to God.
One of Satan's known attributes is that he imitates the things of God in order to deceive. Today the world is filled with false Christs, false Christians, a counterfeit Holy Spirit, false Jews and now we can add to that a false Israel. It is important for us to remember that Israel is not a land mass, but are God's chosen people of the children of Israel. That land was deeded to them, and their brethren.
So how do we recognize those who are of the 'Synagogue of Satan' today? They are the ones who want to go to war with their brothers, the Palestinians. Brothers? Yes, more on that in part three. They also want to rebuild the temple and resume the sacrifices. What? Don't you know that to do this is to spit on the cross of Christ? The sacrifices were paid in full on the cross which is why we call Christ 'the Lamb of God'. But it is the Antichrist who is the coming messiah for these counterfeit Jews who rejected the true Messiah and nailed Him to a tree. So who will those sacrifices that take place in the rebuilt temple be to? Satan himself.
God's Everlasting Covenant Will Stand Forever
I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God
forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, [of] the tribe
of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not
what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against
Israel, saying, Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine
altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the
answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who
have not bowed the knee to [the image of] Baal.
Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye
are the children of them which killed the prophets.
So where are the real Jews today? Something interesting God has shown me is that it is no accident Paul brought up the prophets of God hidden during Elijah's time in this passage. We are in a similar situation today, and once again it involves these men who killed the prophets because they are the ones who rule modern Israel!
The 'Synagogue of Satan' has seemingly killed off most all of the real Jews through ethnic cleansings like the holocaust. They have displaced them in their own land. But little do they know that God has in fact hidden away and preserved 144,000 who will not bow their knee to the Antichrist, Their eyes shall be opened to the fact that Jesus was their Messiah all along and will flee the Antichrist into Petra (Revelation 12:6 KJV).
For a deeper understanding of how we should differentiate between Jewish and Gentile believers I strongly recommend a deep study of Romans chapter 11 where our beloved brother Paul lays it out for us quite simply.
