The Real Damascus Road Experience!!
 

 
Expunged verses from the conversion of Saint Paul restored at last!!
 

Saul of Tarsus–a Hebrew of the Hebrews–had a world changing encounter with the Messiah on the Damascus Road....The only surviving, authentic, and infallible account of his conversion is found in the New Covenant book called The Acts of the Apostles. The Acts of the Apostles was written by Saint Luke in Greek.

The name Saul is Paulos in Greek, Paulus in Latin, and PAUL in English. Personal names don't translate . . . but transliterate from language to language. There is a close affinity between Hebrew and English.

Paul fell to the ground after the Almighty spoke to him in Hebrew.

Saint Paul's conversion was as world changing as the encounter of Moses with JEHOVAH at the Burning Bush.

Both men wanted to know the Name of the Person who spoke with him!

The 2 greatest encounters between men and the Almighty was Moses meeting The Eternal at the Burning Bush, and Saul of Tarsus meeting the Risen Messiah on the Damascus Road.

The missing verses from the Book of Acts are in red!!

Around 37 AD, Saul of Tarsus was on his way to Damascus, Syria, to arrest any of the Jews who believed that Joshua of Nazareth was the Messiah. Suddenly–as if struck by lightning–Saul was knocked off his horse and a voice spoke to him in HEBREW:

And Saul, still breathing out threats and murder against the disciples of JEHOSHUA, went to the high priest, and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, that if he found any that belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them as prisoners to Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven. And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying to him in the Hebrew language, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? And he said, "Who are you, Adonai" and he said "I am JEHOSHUA of Nazareth whom you are persecuting, it is hard for you to kick against the goads. But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen, and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. I will deliver you from your own people, and from the nations, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to Elohim, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and an inheritance among them who are sanctified by faith in me.” And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. When Saul arose from the ground, he was blind, so they led him by the hand to Damascus (Acts 9:1-8).

This verse omits "in the Hebrew language." There were millions of Jews with the Greek name Joshua . . . but this verse omits "of NAZARETH." The Great Commission to preach the Gospel to the entire world was given to Paul at that time.

At the second recounting of his conversion experience, Saint Paul was addressing a Hebrew audience in Jerusalem, so there was no need to state that the voice spoke to him in Hebrew. However, there were thousands of Jews with the common name Jehoshua, so Paul had to qualify the name by saying Jehoshua of Nazareth:

When they heard him speak to them in Hebrew, they became very quiet. Then he said: “I am indeed a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, taught according to the strictness of our fathers’ law, and was as zealous toward Elohim as any of you are today. I persecuted this Way to the death, arresting both men and women, and throwing them into prison, as also the high priest and all the council of the elders can testify. I also received letters from the elders to their brethren at Damascus, and went there to bring these people to Jerusalem to be punished. About noon, as I came near Damascus, suddenly a bright light from heaven shone around me. I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" So I answered, "who are you, Adonai?" And he said to me, "I am JEHOSHUA of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting." And those who were with me indeed saw the light and were afraid, but they did not hear the voice of him who spoke to me. So I said, "What shall I do, JEHOSHUA?" And JEHOSHUA said to me, "Arise and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all things which are appointed for you to do" And since I could not see for the glory of the light, being led by the hand of those who were with me, I came to Damascus (Acts 22: 3-10).

The third time Paul relates his conversion experience he was on trial before King Agrippa:

As I went to Damascus with the authority and commission from the chief priests, at midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. And when we were all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? it is hard for you to kick against the goads." And I said, "who are you, Adonai?" And he said, "I am JEHOSHUA of Nazareth whom you are persecuting. But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen, and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. I will deliver you from your own people, and from the nations, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to Elohim, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and an inheritance among them who are sanctified by faith in me” (Acts 26:12-18).

The Greek transliteration of the name Jehoshua is Joshua and it was a very common name among the Greek speaking Jews.

Saul (a Roman citizen) was one of the most intelligent men that ever lived and he spoke Hebrew, Greek, and Latin fluently. The Messiah could have spoken to him in any of those languages but he spoke to him in Hebrew because that was the language of the Jews.

Saint Paul's defense before Emperor Nero is missing!!

Saint Paul had a golden opportunity to testify before Emperor Nero at his first trial at Rome. That account is missing from all extant copies of the New Covenant:

Then Paul lived two whole years in his own rented house, and received all who came to him, preaching the kingdom of Elohim, and teaching the things which concern Joshua the Christ, with all confidence, no one forbidding him (Acts 28:3).

The Book of Acts ends abruptly at this point. We are told nothing about Saint Paul's first trial before Nero. Saint Paul could not possibly have told Nero that a person named JESUS had appeared to him because that was a Latin name. That is the main reason why the rest of the Book of Acts was expunged.

Saint Paul had a great opportunity to relate his Damascus Road Experience before Emperor Nero.

If Paul had told Nero that a person named JESUS had appeared to him, Nero would have accused him of lying.

Even Nero knew that the Jewish Messiah could not possibly have a Latin name!!

As Paul's head was cut off, those vital verses were cut out of the Christian New Covenant.

The only genuine copies remaining are in the Secret Archives of the Vatican.

After his first trial before Nero, Saint Paul was acquitted, and then he realized his ambition to plant true Christianity in España.

After preaching the Gospel in España, Saint Paul crossed over into Britannia. Several ancient authors mention Saint Paul in Britain, and the Messiah promised him that he would send him far away to the nations:

And he said to me, "depart; for I will send you far away to the nations" (Acts 22:21).

It is most probable that the Druids conspired with their deadly enemy the Romans to have Saint Paul arrested, because he was beheaded at Rome by order of Emperor Nero about 68 AD.

The editing of the Greek Scriptures begin with Constantine!!

Constantine–with a lot of help from his Druidess mother Helena–was the father of the perverted Latin Vulgate Version.

Emperor Constantine 272 - 337).
Emperor Constantine (274–337).
Emperor from 306 to 337.
 

The 2 men who were the driving force behind the editing of the Greek Scriptures were Emperor Constantine and Jerome.

About 330 AD, Constantine ordered 50 copies of the Greek Septuagint sent to Constantinople.

That momentous event began the editing and deleting of Saint Paul's Damascus Road Experience.

Constantine's native language was Latin, but he ordered Eusebius to make 50 copies of the Greek Septuagint and send them to his palace at Constantinople for his inspection:

VICTOR CONSTANTINUS, MAXIMUS AUGUSTUS TO Eusebius:
It happens, through the favoring providence of God our Saviour, that great numbers have united themselves to the most holy church in the city which is called by my name. It seems, therefore, highly requisite, since that city is rapidly advancing in prosperity in all other respects, that the number of churches should also be increased. Do you, therefore, receive with all readiness my determination on this behalf. I have thought it expedient to instruct your Prudence to order fifty copies of the sacred Scriptures, the provision and use of which you know to be most needful for the instruction of the Church, to be written on prepared parchment in a legible manner, and in a convenient, portable form, by professional transcribers thoroughly practiced in their art. The catholicus of the diocese has also received instructions by letter from our Clemency to be careful to furnish all things necessary for the preparation of the copies; and it will be for you to take special care that they be completed with as little delay as possible. You have authority also, in virtue of this letter to use two of the public carriages for their conveyance, by which arrangement the copies when fairly written will most easily be forwarded for my personal inspection; and one of the deacons of your church may be entrusted with this service, who, on their arrival here, shall experience my liberality. (Eusebius Life of Constantine, Book XXXVI).

It was typical of Constantine to try and bribe everybody with his liberality. That was how he made converts to his "church." What was begun by Constantine in 330, was completed by Jerome around 440 AD. All the copies of the Greek Scriptures extant follow the conversion of Saint Paul as found in the corrupt Latin Vulgate Version.

Jeremiah the Prophet warned the people against the false religious leaders stealing the words of JEHOVAH:

Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith JEHOVAH, that steal my words every one from his neighbour (Jeremiah 23:30).

The last warning in the New Covenant is about adding to . . . or deleting from . . . the words of Joshua of Nazareth:

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, ff any man shall add unto these things, Elohim shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Elohim shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book (Revelation 22:18-19)

Beginning with the Latin Vulgate Version, Satan controlled people have been deleting Scriptures. Here is just one typical example. A woman's name is completely deleted from the text:

And when Joshua was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at the table, there came a woman (name deleted) having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very costly; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. But when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for a large sum, and given to the poor.” But Joshua, being aware of this, said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. In pouring this ointment on my body she has done it to prepare me for burial. Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her (Matthew 26: 6-13, Mark 14:3-9).

How can a memorial be told of her worldwide if she has NO NAME??? Thomas Jefferson produced a "Bible" with all the miracles of Christ deleted because he didn't believe in miracles . . . even the Resurrection.

History has shown that Satan can and does use his servants to add to and delete vital verses of Scripture . . . otherwise this final warning would be superfluous....The Latin Vulgate Version added 12 book (Apocrypha) to the Hebrew Scriptures, and deleted hundreds of verses from the Christian Greek Scriptures.

Have you had your Damascus Road experience?

Saint Paul was one of the most intelligent men that ever lived....In his masterly exposition of the doctrine of the Resurrection, he wrote that if the Resurrection was a myth or fable, there would be no resurrection of the dead on the Last Day; nobody would be held accountable for breaking the 10 Commandments, and everybody should eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we all die, and what we believe will make no difference. Saint Paul gave a brilliant refutation of the doctrine of evolution that teaches that man is just a beast and the Day of Judgment is a myth:

If, in the manner of men, I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me? If the dead do not rise, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die! (I Corinthians 15:32).

Don't leave this world without meeting the Messiah and having a Damascus Road Experience!!
