Jerusalem is Trodden Down by the Nations!!

The word GENTILES in the Holy Bible comes from Jerome's corrupt Latin Vulgate Version!!

Gentile (plural Gentiles) comes from the Latin GENS meaning a Roman family or tribe. Mormons call everybody who does not belong to the Mormon Church a GENTILE!!

Before his crucifixion and Resurrection from the dead, Joshua the Son of Elohim predicted that 2 things would happen to Israel:

1.
Their great Temple in Jerusalem would be utterly destroyed with not one stone remaining upon another!!
2.
They would be led away captive into all nations and Jerusalem would be occupied by the nations until the end of time!!

And Joshua said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down (Matthew 24:2).

And they (Jews) shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the NATIONS (Greek: ethnos), until the times of the NATIONS (Greek: ethnos) be fulfilled (Luke 21:24).

According to the Bible, nations will be here until the end of time, so the times of the nations will be fulfilled at the end of time:

And the nations (Greek: ethnos) were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. (Revelation 11:18).

The first of the great prophecies of Joshua was fulfilled with the complete destruction of the Temple.

The complete destruction of the Temple was the fulfillment of one of the great prophecies of JESUS... If Satan can convince you that JOSHUA was WRONG about the Temple and the Jews . . . he will try to get you to doubt the existance of HELL also!!

General Titus, later to become Emperor Titus, led the Roman legions that completely destroyed the Jewish Temple.

The end of the world came for the Jewish nation in 70 AD

The end of the world came for the Jewish nation in 70 A.D., after general Titus and his Roman legions besieged the city and leveled the Temple flat with the ground.

Because they rejected their Messiah, Joshua predicted the total destruction of the Jewish nation in one of his parables:

But when the king heard thereof, he was angry: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city (Matthew 22:7).

Here is an eyewitness report from a real Jew named Josephus who saw the Temple completely destroyed:

Now as soon as the army had no more people to slay or to plunder, because there remained none to be the objects of their fury, (for they would not have spared any, had there remained any other work to be done,) Caesar gave orders that they should now demolish the entire city and temple, but should leave as many of the towers standing as were of the greatest eminency; that is, Phasaelus, and Hippicus, and Mariamne; and so much of the wall as enclosed the city on the west side. This wall was spared, in order to afford a camp for such as were to lie in garrison, as were the towers also spared, in order to demonstrate to posterity what kind of city it was, and how well fortified, which the Roman valor had subdued; but for all the rest of the wall, it was so thoroughly laid even with the ground by those that dug it up to the foundation, that there was left nothing to make those that came thither believe it had ever been inhabited. This was the end which Jerusalem came to by the madness of those that were for innovations; a city otherwise of great magnificence, and of mighty fame among all mankind. (Josephus Book VII).

Josephus was miraculously preserved from death so that he could record the epochal event of the destruction of Jerusalem.

Flavius Josephus was a Jewish soldier/historian who escaped the conflagration of Judea by making peace with the Romans.

He was an eyewitness to the TOTAL destruction of the Temple in fulfillment of the words of Joshua.

Josephus also said that the Romans left the 10th legion behind to garrison Jerusalem. The 10th legion were housed in Fortress Antonia.

But Caesar resolved to leave there, as a guard, the tenth legion, with certain troops of horsemen, and companies of footmen. So, having entirely completed this war, he was desirous to commend his whole army, on account of the great exploits they had performed, and to bestow proper rewards on such as had signalized themselves therein. (Josephus Book VII).

In 71 AD, general Titus had a Triumph at Rome to celebrate his victory over the Jews.

The predictions are so accurate that skeptics like to say that the gospels were written after 70 AD.

With the destruction of the Temple, the True Faith was no longer localized or national but became Catholic or universal....The PHYSICAL Temple was replaced by the SPIRITUAL Temple or Congregation of Christ.

St. Paul said:

Do ye not know that ye are the temple of Elohim, and the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you? (I Corinthians 3:16).

In the Old Covenant, JEHOVAH was married to Israel:

Turn, O backsliding children, saith JEHOVAH; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion (Jeremiah 3:14).

With his wife now dead and buried, JOSHUA took a new wife: the true Congregation of Christ:

And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. (Revelation 21:9).

After the destruction of the Temple, the Mount of Olives became the #1 destination for the Christians. They could see with their own eyes the complete destruction of the Temple which was located across the Kidron Valley.

The Mount of Olives was the #1 destination for the Christians

For at least 300 years after the Resurrection, Christian pilgrims flocked to Jerusalem to see the empty tomb on the Mount of Olives:

Believers in Jesus all congregate from all parts of the world....that they may worship at the MOUNT OF OLIVES opposite the city....TO THE CAVE that is shown there. (Eusebius, Proof of the Gospel, Bk. VI. ch. 18).

This was the site of the Resurrection, BC—before Constantine.

Calvary on the Mount of Olives was the location of the Resurrection of Christ.

After the Constantinian Revolution, the site was changed to the former gloomy temple of Venus.

 

Church of the Holy Sepulchre, former site of the Temple of Venus.

The site of the Resurrection of Christ was changed by Emperor Constantine. After that time, Jerusalem began to lose its importance as the center of Christianity and the focus shifted to Rome in the West and Constantinople in the East.

No such word as GENTILE in the Hebrew or Greek Bibles!!

Here is the dictionary definition of the word Gentile....Gentiles is the plural of the singular word Gentile:

gentile (jèn´tìl´) noun
1. Often Gentile . One who is not of the Jewish faith or is of a non-Jewish nation.
2. Often Gentile. A Christian.
3. A pagan or heathen.
4. Often Gentile. Mormon Church. A non-Mormon.

There is no such word as GENTILE in the Hebrew or Greek Bibles....Gentile comes from the Latin GENS meaning a Roman family or tribe. In pagan Rome, the Gens Familiaris (familiar spirits) were the guardian spirits of the family and part of demonic ancestor worship.

That word found its way into the English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian Bibles by way of the corrupt Latin Vulgate Version.

In 382, Jerome was commissioned by Pope Damnasus to revise the popular Latin translation of the Bible in use since at least 150 AD.

Eventually, his perversion replaced the Old Latin Version.

It was called the Latin Vulgate and became the official version of the Vatican.

When the Greek language died out in the West (except in Hibernia), this new Latin Vulgate replaced the Old Latin and Greek versions.

The Hebrew word for nation is goy (plural goyim). The Greek word for nation is ETHNOS and is wrongly translated as Gentiles in the English, Spanish, and Italian New Testaments:

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (Luke 21:24).

This wrongly translated verse is from the "Authorized" or King James Version of the Holy Bible. The singular word Gentile appears 2 times and the plural Gentiles appears 129 times.

Here is another sly erroneous insertion of the word GENTILES in the Bible. In Isaiah chapter 9 there is a prophecy of the coming Messiah:

Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations (Hebrew: goyim).
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. (Isaiah 9:1-2).

That verse is quoted almost verbatim by Saint Matthew when referring to Joshua:

That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. (Matthew 4:14-16).

The word translated as GENTILES in that verse is the Greek word ETHNOS.

What this verse is really saying is that JESUS was a ROMAN!!'

So pernicious was the influence of the corrupt Latin Vulgate Version that even as great a translator as Saint Martin Luther sometimes translated GOY and ETHNOS as heathen!!

No translation can substitute for a knowledge of Hebrew and Greek for a perfect understanding of the Bible.

Jesuit Futurism requires the existence of JEWS . . . and GENTILES!!

Francisco Ribera was a Spanish doctor of theology who wrote a 500 page Latin commentary on Revelation (Apocalypse) entitled: In Sacrum Beati Ioannis Apostoli, & Evangelistiae Apocalypsin Commentarij, and published it about the year 1590....This commentary was never translated into any other language and was for the eyes of the hierarchy only!!

Robert Bellarmine was an Italian doctor of theology and is best known for his opposition to fellow Jesuit Galileo and his HELLiocentric theory. He also wrote a book in Latin entitled: Disputationes de controversiis christianae fidei, or Polemic Lectures Concerning the Disputed Points of the Christian Belief Against the Heretics of This Time. This book follows the basic outline of Francisco de Ribera's book with the reign of Antichrist limited to a few years way off in the future before the end of time.

In the Futurist system of Ribera and Bellarmine, Antichrist is an evil superman who emerges just 7 years before the end of time and causes all kinds of havoc.

"Jews" and "GENTILES" are absolutely necessary in the prophetic scheme of Francisco de Ribera and Cardinal Robert Bellarmine.

That is why the Jesuits slyly introduced that corrupt word in most Bible translations.

According to Futurism, "Jews" would recover Jerusalem from the "Gentiles" and then a future Antichrist would sit in a rebuilt "Jewish" temple in Jerusalem conveniently shifting the focus from the present Antichrist in Rome!!

If you think this is a BIG JOKE think again....The Pentagon gives billions in military aid to the Khazar State of "Israel" and billions more are sent as BRIBES in the form of oil payments to the Muslims to allow that state to exist!!

And this whole farce is just a desperate attempt to stop the Christians from calling the Pope: Antichrist.

Jerome said that JOSHUA went to HELL!!

It is beyond belief but Jerome said that JOSHUA the sinless Son of Elohim went to HELL....This mistranslation is the foundation of the Vatican's falsely so-called "Apostles' Creed."

This is just more proof what a lousy translators JEROME was and his complete lack of Biblical knowledge. Here is his translation of St. Peter's sermon on the Day of Pentecost:

Foreseeing this, he (King David) spoke of the resurrection of Christ. For neither was he left in hell (Latin: inferno): neither did his flesh see corruption. (Acts 2:31). (Latin Vulgate Translation).

Here is the same verse in English translated from the Greek Textus Receptus or Byzantine Text:

He, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption. (Acts 2:31).

In the New Testament or Covenant, the Greek word HADES is used to describe 2 destination for the dead before the Resurrection of Christ. These 2 destinations were:

1. Paradise or Abraham's Bosom.
2. Torments.

The righteous dead, along with little children, went to Paradise or Abraham's Bosom . . . and the wicked went to Torments.

HELL in the New Covenant is always associated with FIRE and when people say "go to HELL" they always mean a very, very nasty unpleasant place:

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Greek: gehenna). (Matthew 10:28).

The closest equivalent of the Greek gehenna is the Hebrew topheth:

For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king (Satan) it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of JEHOVAH, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it. (Isaiah 30:33).

When JOSHUA died on the tree, He went to Paradise or Abraham's Bosom . . . not to hell:

And Joshua said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in PARADISE (Luke 23:43).

Even Jerome could not corrupt that verse:

And Joshua said to him: amen I say to thee: this day thou shalt be with me in paradise (Latin: paradiso). (Luke 23:43). (Latin Vulgate Translation).

After the Resurrection, ALL believers in Christ go straight to HEAVEN along with children who are too young to sin:

For Elohim so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish (in hell), but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
