Are the Christians Spiritually Jews?

The word Jewish doesn’t refer to a religion it refers to nationality or to a race. In Hebrew and in Arabic the word “Jewish” means (Yahoudee) it means God’s people. The word God in Hebrew is (Yahweh). For this reason God named his chosen people by “Jews”(Yahoud). So the word Jewish is not a religion. Any one that loves God and obey God’s word is Jewish. God also has another name (Jehovah). For this reason the religious group of Jehovah witnesses use this name. We are all the witnesses of Jehovah, it doesn’t means that we are embracing the religion of Jehovah Witnesses. It is the same as (Jewish) we are God’s chosen people (Jews) when we obey his word it doesn’t mean that we are from the Israelites nation but from God’s people. It means that the Christians are Jews (God’s people) but not Israelites. Any way the book of revelation tell us that all the righteous peoples will be with God in New Jerusalem, Revelation 21:10. We don’t know were God shall establish the New Jerusalem. It is not the city of Jerusalem that is in Israel, it is the New Jerusalem Revelation 21: 23. God shall destroy this earth and shall make New Heaven and New Earth, Revelation 1. So everything will become new, Revelation 21: 5.

For more information about who is chosen and who is not, please refer to the files of (chosen) in this site.

Christ’s kingdom on earth is for one thousand years of peace without satan, Revelation (20: 1 to 3)(20: 4 to 5), Isaiah 11: 1 to 16. Christ’s peaceful kingdom on earth is not the same when God shall make the New Jerusalem. The New earth and the New Jerusalem is forever but not for one thousand years, Revelation 22: 5, Isaiah 65: 17 to 25.

Christ’s kingdom on earth comes before God make New Jerusalem, for more information refer to the files of (the millennial) and (Jesus’ first and second return) in this site.

Our new permanent country with God and Jesus is in Jerusalem.

So when we obey God’s word that is in the Torah we are (Jews) it means (God’s people). God announced his law of the Torah to Moses to announce it to the Jews and to all the peoples as well. When we obey the law of the Torah we are obeying God’s law BUT NOT THE LAW OF THE JEWS.

It is deplorable to see many people deficient in knowledge that Jesus is Jewish and He was calling all nations to embrace God’s laws that is in the Torah. Jesus didn’t preach Judaism at all and didn’t abolish God’s law of the Torah.

Your Post DEMONstrates How Unlike Jesus, You Are.
And How Seperate And Lonely It Is To Be A Atheist.
As far as I see it, that post is nothing but complimentary. It's good that I am totally unlike your lying bastard, Rabbi. Separate, I don't get your meaning, I am completely involved in my life, my family, my friends, my loves, my studies, my pastimes, my planet, my being. And lonely? I don't get that either. Isn't being lonely, a bit childish. Isn't that when alone, ones own company becomes insufficient? I have never been there, nor have I ever been bored. Am I missing something worthwhile?

History will prove you wrong, but why should it matter to you? Shouldn't you be praying to Jewsus, for the zombie apocalyspe to begin?

All this garbage is 99% Jehovah witness's and 1% Seven Day Adventist. Both are dangerous cults. I wish you would talk to my buddy Richard he's an Atheist but a former head elder of Jehovah's witnesses. It's very interesting how he went from being a life long member and even a popular preacher who traveled all around giving sermons and such to leaving the cult and becoming an Atheist. Sadly his wife won't leave not his children and grand kids. They all shun him call him apostate and such it's sad. After leaving that cult he was asked to join seven day advantist and other Protestant churches he turned them all down.
You should email him, be patient he's a very old man and doesn't respond immediately but his path to atheism is unique and his point of view is interesting as well.

Congratulations to your friend, for managing to escape from the fog. A self imposed delusion can only be maintained, by the careful omission of any rational thought, and for one who has but a mere modicum of logic, it will become an impossibility.

<quoted text>Oh no you didn't.
We have had this discussion in the thread " Is Atheism a Religion?"
You made the same lie there saying that "Atheism = Laveys satanism"

Then I asked you the following question:
"Do you believe that all atheists are Laveys atheists?"

You dodged around for a while, but finally replied thus:
" No not all but some"

You then tried to save face by saying "I meant atheism not atheists" which didn't mean anything in context.
Hope I won't have to repeat this argument in other threads
Lol

60 Days In Prison And A $12,180 Fine For Hosting A Home Bible Study In Arizona

The war on home Bible studies and house churches is heating up again. Down in Phoenix, Arizona a man has been sentenced to 60 days in prison and has been fined $12,180 for hosting a Bible study in his home.
Since 2005, Michael Salman and his wife have been hosting gatherings of about 15 or 20 people where they share food, fellowship and discuss the Bible.
The law doesn't have to forgive him his lies. His judge was not Jesus.
Game room? No, he built a church. He broke the codes, when he lied and said that he was building a game room. Criminals belong in jail, and they need to pay the fines. The money helps the city to keep on enforcing the codes. Render unto Ceaser..... LOL!

The star of David is an object of worship an image. Moses is the Jewish equivilant of a saint. Jehovah witnesses believe Jesus already returned? Show me where you got that because that's nowhere to be found on their wiki and even a google search comes up with nothing except Jesus will return at Armageddon leading his army of angels against Satan and the demons ect ect. 1000 years eh? Let me guess that's after your great tribulation and Armageddon right? The 1000 year reign of Jesus? Something along those lines right?

You're right, Atheists aren't lonely. In fact. Why the f*ck am I in this forum calling Atheists lonely, when it's clear I'm a godbot nobody listens to. F*ck I didn't even make it past elementary school where we learn how and when to use capital letters properly.
And I'm the idiot my cult put in charge of recruiting members. Man we break new ground in ineffectiveness every day.
Yeah, its nice you've found honesty.

Hope the atheists don't notice that I haven't made any arguments. Maybe they will be misdirected by my attacks so I don't have to fail to prove my bullsh*t god?
No, you still have to prove your bullsh*t god.
