What is the Truth?

Once Jesus was asked about the Truth and he said that the Truth is the Word of God.(John 17:17) That's the Word of God which was given to the Jews only and to no other people on earth.(Psalm 147:19,20)

How is this then that so many different kinds of beliefs claim to teach the Truth? That's true but if they submit their claims to the test of Isaiah 8:20 all collapse but one.

Isaiah says in 8:20 that, "To the Law and the Prophets; if they don't teach according to this word, it is because they do no teach the Truth."

Interesting to notice, Isaiah mentions above two words, "Law and the Prophets" then says that if they do not teach according to "this word" as if he had mentioned only one word it is because Judaism was in his mind. According to Judaism.

Who teaches according to the Law and the Prophets if not the Jews? It means that they are the only ones to teach according to the Truth. The only one claim that did not collapse.

Jesus himself was a good example of a Jew who taught according to the Law and the Prophets if you read Matthew 5:17-19. His Apostles followed the same method and headquartered themselves in Jerusalem to coexist peacefully with mainstream Judaism.

One day Paul decided to bring his gospel to Jerusalem and was almost killed for teaching idolatry in Jerusalem as he was preaching about Jesus as Christ, son of God and that he had resurrected.(II Timothy 2:8) It means that his gospel was different from that of the Apostles. Hence he named them false apostles for preaching about a different Jesus from the one he was preaching. That's in II Corinthians 11:3-6,13. In other words Paul did not pass the test of Isaiah 8:20 for not preaching the Truth.

No wonder Jehovah God took the Law and the Covenant away from the Jews, and had their Temple destroyed forever, and giving Islam the seat of authority with the Dome in the Jews once Capitol city of Jerusalem. Too bad the Jews can't accept the fact that they are no longer God's people or his personal property anymore, and they did this by killing Jesus their Messiah and God's only Son sent from heaven to deliver them from sin and death. Isaiah 53:12 Matthew 16:21

Jesus hand picked Paul to be an apostle to the world of pagan Gentiles who would also make up the new nation of Spiritual Jews by becoming Christians and inherit the promises meant for the Jews. Acts 9:5 and 15:14
Galatians 4:21-31

------

Only an anti-Semite would falsely accuse the Jews with having killed Jesus when the truth is so clear that Jesus was killed because of his own disciples acclaiming him king of the Jews at the entrance of Jerusalem which was at the time a Roman province.(Luke 19:37-40) Moreover, Pilate made it very clear by nailing on the top of Jesus' cross the verdict of insurrection for being acclaimed king of the Jews: INRI. But it didn't help as the anti-Semites have survived to this day.

The Scriptures say the Jewish leaders and their mob had Jesus killed, Matthew 16:21 and yes it was because Jesus claimed to be the Messianic king of God's Kingdom. The Jews rejected Jesus as their Messiah, that is why the entire nation of Israel are still cut off from any inheritance from God, unless they repent and accept Jesus as the now reigning King of God's heavenly Kingdom government.

Tell me something new. The NT is a book of lies. Only 20% is worth learning something from. Jesus was a Jewish man and to claim to be a Messianic king was not Jewish. Therefore it was not true. Jesus was never king and much less now that he is dead. It is not Jewish to accept a dead man as our Messiah. According to Habakkuk 3:13 the People is the Messiah anointed of the Lord.

Besides, the Messiah cannot be an individual as the individual is born, lives his span of life and dies. Are we to expect a new Messiah in every generation? Obviously not. The Messiah cannot die. He is supposed to remain as a People before the Lord forever. Read Jeremiah 31:35-37.

Since you reject Jesus and the complete word of God, the Bible, I can only tell you... enjoy what time you have left on this earth, because there is not much time left.

I am still going to try and help people understand the truth of Scriptures in this time of Judgement, because Jesus said only the meek and obedient of mankind will listen and find everlasting life. Matthew 28:19,20

How can you help people understand the truth of Scriptures if you do not understand it yourself? Jesus said that the Truth is the Word of God which according Psalm 147:19,20 was given to the Jews only and to no other people on earth.(John 17:17) Hence Jesus in his Sermon of the Mount to a crowd of Jews said to them that they were the light of the world.(Mat. 5:14) If you don't get the Truth
by means of Israel, you just don't have it. That's simply as that.

Balderdash! All verbal juggling that makes no sense. The truth is that you guys don't preach according to the Law and the Prophets and therefore there is no truth in whatever you say. Read Isaiah 8:20.

Jehovah God replaced the Law and the Prophets with the Law of Christ and the New Covenant with Jesus as the Lamb of God, for forgiveness of sins.
Hebrews 9:11-14

Your days are over, all the Jews who are not Jehovah's witnesses today are the property of Satan the Devil, same as every other person in any nation, tribe and tongue on this earth. Individuals out of every nation, tribe and tongue are being gathered to survive the end of this world, and they are true Christian subjects of Jehovah God's heavenly Kingdom government, with Kings and Priests who are ruling and reigning with Jesus over this earth.

The Truth is the name God has given to her religion. It includes events that are factual and verifiable by evidence and witnesses. It is also the word of God. The Lord is "a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he". God does not make promises she cannot keep. God is not a false witness. God "swears to her own hurt". God does not deal deceitfully.

And the only ones who profess the religion of God are those who have passed the truth-test of Isaiah 8:20. Those who speak according to the Law and the Prophets. Otherwise there is no truth in them. That's
the Word of God which was given to Israel only and to no other people
on earth.(Psalm 147:19,20)

Isaiah 43, the whole chapter is about Israel the Jewish People. Read verses 1 and 3. It has nothing to do with Gentiles. Some Christians try to rob the Jewish People of that chapter by plagiarizing verse 10 as an act of Replacement Theology which according to some scholars it is a kind of Christian antisemitism.

Christians are deaf and blind to the Truth. They have seen nothing and their testimony is all a lot of propaganda. When the true Messiah comes, we will all be witnesses. Most prophecy is not known until it is fulfilled. The God of Israel is also the savior of the Gentiles. Isaiah 49:6.

Here is an interesting article on the antisemitic organization of Jehovah's Witnesses and their printing company, the Watchtower Bible And Tract Society.

The Jehovah's Witnesses have the dubious distinction of having printed more antisemitic literature than any other printing company on the planet!

http://www.yadlachimusa.org.il/...

The organization of Jehovah's Witnesses formally reject the God of Israel and have created their own god out of the pages of an occult novel.

I guess the organization of Jehovah' had to create a god for themselves. After all they have officially called the God of Israel a liar and condemned his chosen people for the actions of the Romans!

Isn't it sad that this poor soul on here defending a false god of blood and mayhem can't see the truth even if it bites him in the posterior?

You do not preach the Truth, Ben, if you promote the divinity of Jesus. You use a lot of NT scripture and that is the doctrine of satan. Job 31:35 "...my desire is that the Almighty would answer me, and that mine adversary had written a book" Satan (Adam) has always wanted to be God and through Jesus, his counterfeit messiah, he is worshipped as God. There remains a covenant/contract between God and mankind. Part of that is to remain faithful to the living God. Christians commit adultery and whoredom from God.

You are blaspheming against Almighty God Jehovah and God's word the Bible, and against God's named people Jehovah's witnesses, therefore you have no hope whatsoever. Matthew 12:32

The ot was the only truth at that time.( but its fact--non Israelites became Jehovah servants as well in the ot). But the NT clearly teaches that israels house is abandoned to them( cut off from being Gods chosen) Matt 23:37-38) Jesus gave them every opportunity to listen and repent--they refused and turned their hearts to hatred--now the only way to return to God is to accept Jesus as the Messiah.
The Israelite teachers back then looked upon the basic flock members as Amharets( giving spiritual scraps to the dogs) they placed themselves on pedastels as something better than everyone else. Along comes a mere carpenters son --correcting all of their bad teachings--this turned their hearts to hatred--they were expecting a mighty king on the spot( they were wrong) to rid Israel of the romans and defeat them.
Jesus made a new covenant--the ot covenant was done.

Through Israel the Jewish People. Hence Isaiah said that Israel was set aside as a light unto the nations (Isa.42:6) and Jesus himself declared to a crowd of Jews listening to him deliver his Sermon of the Mount when he said that they were the light of the world.(Mat.5:14)

Now, about the true Messiah, I believe in the one mentioned in Habakkuk 3:13. "The Lord comes forth to save His People; to save His anointed one. That's what Maschiach is in Hebrew: The anointed one of the Lord. The true Messiah in fact could never be an individual as the individual is born, lives his span of life and eventually dies. Are we supposed to expect a new Messiah in every generation? Obviously not. The Messiah is not supposed to die but to remain as a People before the Lord forever.(Jer.31:35-37)
