Jesus as an ‘occupier?’ Not really

Jesus as an ‘occupier?’ Not really

Tuesday’s column, “Sorry GOP, Jesus was an ‘occupier,’” was way off base and the writer certainly does not know the scriptures. The Democrats and Republicans are just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees of the time of Jesus and they were the ones who wanted to kill Him, even though that is the reason why He came to this dark, sinful planet.

People always try to use the Bible to justify their positions and thereby twist the scripture to their own destruction. Jesus said that His kingdom is not of this earth and that people should give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s. All the governments of the world are controlled by the evil one and one day Jesus will return and set everything straight.

In the meantime the scripture says that if a man doesn’t work he shouldn’t eat and that all rebellion against any type of government is like the sin of witchcraft or worship of the devil. If all these occupiers and complainers would work instead of picket, the world would be a different place.

Our forefathers left England when they didn’t agree with the practice of the church or the government. Then when they settled here they stole the Indians’ land and enslaved African people for 400 years. Later they gave alcohol and gambling to the Indians and demeaned the descendants of Africa with social programs instead of respect and dignity.

A house divided cannot stand and the government is divided. The government sends men into outer space, where there is nothing and sends men to war against sovereign countries where we have no business being. If the country used all of the money used to send people to space and war for the nation, the nation would be strong and righteous.

Jesus said blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God. This Christmas let America turn back to God, repent of its sins and feed the hungry, visit the sick, help the weak and love and respect all people in the world and help them whenever and wherever they can. This is the true meaning of Christmas.

"You cannot serve God and wealth" (Jesus the Occupier recorded in Matthew 6:24). Jesus is with the 99%.

This article sounds like a takeoff of Newt Gingrich's statement about the Palestinians.

"GOP presidential frontrunner Newt Gingrich stirred up plenty of controversy last week when he called Palestinians an "invented people" in an interview from the campaign trail.
"I think we have an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs and historically part of the Arab community and they had the chance to go many places,' Gingrich told the Jewish Channel last week."

Historical fact:
In AD70, in response to the Jewish rebellion against the Roman Empire, General Titus made a final assault on Jerusalem and had the entire city captured by August. During the siege, the temple was burned and then later dismantled, stone by stone even down to its foundation so that "not one stone was left upon another" (just like Jesus had prophecied- see Matthew 24).

Anyway, "Israel" (Judea), which was a satellite colony contained within Palestine,was wiped off the map and was then only known as Palestine.

Everyone should know by now that the original Israel was established by God and God was their King. Along down the line the Israelites demanded a human king instead of God so God gave them Saul.

By ~550 BC the only remaining tribe of the original twelve tribes of Israel was Judah (Judea).

The destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 was the return of Jesus in the judgment not only of the tribe of Judah, but all of the twelve tribes of Israel:

Matthew 19:28  And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me [His 12 disciples], in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Jesus also told them that some of them wouild still be alive when He would come in His Kingdom, judging the 12 tribes of Israel:

Matthew 16:28  Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

Jesus also told them that it would be their generation who would witness His return in judgment of the twelve tribes of Israel and see that temple in Jerusalem left burned and dismantled stone by stone:

Matthew 24:34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

For 1,878 years the "Israel" we have in the M.E. was known as Palestine.

In 1948 "Israel" was reinstated as a nation under the authority of the United Nations which was originally called the League of Nations which was founded in 1913, the same year that the Federal Reserve Act was ramrodded through Congress. (The sole purpose of the League of Nations originally was to bring "Israel" back as a nation.)

I'll let you be the judge as to who the real "invented" people are-

Newt Gingrich's "Palestinians"?-

(I think NOT).

I'd whip up some quotes but I never understood the fixation with quoting fiction to make myself feel wise and show off.
