JAMES asks THE FALSE APOSTLE Paul the hard questions!
With a raised eyebrow, James looks at Paul and says:
And they are informed of thee that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to “FORSAKE” Moses, saying that they ought NOT to “CIRCUMCISE” their children, NEITHER to walk after the “CUSTOMS.” ACTS 21:21
Wow! James didn’t pull any punches or sugar-coat his questions did he? Notice that James is not asking Paul what he is teaching the Gentiles as our ministers have overlooked. James is asking Paul what he is teaching the “JEWS” that live among the Gentile nation.James hears Paul alleged claims that he has been converted to the ministry. So it is now question and answer time for Paul! It is now time for Paul to either: “Put up or shut up!” James asks Paul, if the rumors are true that he is teaching the Jews that they should forsake the Laws of Moses and also not circumcise their children. The tension mounts! While Paul thinks about how to answer James’ question, let’s skip ahead and see if the rumors are true Did Paul teach against “circumcision” and that Jesus ended the laws of Moses and the “Ordinances?”·
For neither CIRCUMCISION counts for anything nor UNCIRCUMCISION but keeping the commandments of God. 1ST CORINTHIANS 7:19
According to Paul, God’s law of circumcision is stupid and useless? Does Paul teach us that it was Jesus that causes the end of circumcision? Oh yes!·
Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be CIRCUMCISED Christ shall PROFIT you nothing. GALATIANS 5:2
As you can see the rumors are correct Paul says above that if the Jews continue circumcising their children then the message of Jesus is of no good to them! Huh? Seeing as he has never heard Jesus’ message at all, how does Paul know any of this? While Paul is still thinking about what to tell James, let’s look at more of Paul’s original doctrine. Did Paul teach against the Laws of Moses? Yes he did:·
For “I TESTIFY” again to every man that is CIRCUMCISED, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.4. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are FALLEN FROM GRACE. GALATIANS 5:3, 4
So are we to believe that the Jews have fallen from God’s grace because they continue to obey God’s covenant of circumcision? This man is a liar!
· Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to “ORDINANCES.” COLOSSIANS 2:20
Paul asks the question why he should have to follow the “ordinances” of Moses if he believes in Jesus. Why would Paul even ask such a ridiculous question? Where is he getting this stuff from? We know it wasn’t from Jesus or the true Disciples. Lastly, as concerning the end of the Laws of Moses Paul says the following:·
“BLOTTING OUT” the Handwriting of “ORDINANCES”that was AGAINST US which was contrary to us, and took it OUT OF THE WAY, nailing it to his cross. COLOSSIANS 2:14
You can see from Paul’s own letters that he openly taught against circumcision. Paul also taught the Jews that when Jesus died on the cross, He allegedly “blotted out” the written Laws of Moses. Paul claims Jesus did this because the laws were all contrary and against us. Wow! What a liar !!!! Now you know the truth! Now let’s return to the confrontation between James and Paul!(Personal note) The Disciples did not have access to Paul’s private “EPISTLES” like we have today in the verses above. James is patiently waiting for an answer from Paul about the rumors. There was no way for James to know what you and I know about Paul’s epistles. Other than being in actual attendance and hearing the messages of Paul James has no way of knowing if what the people are accusing Paul of is true. So what is Paul’s answer to the question? The scriptural verses do not give us Paul’s response to James’ question. However, when reading Acts 21 verses 22 thru 25, you can come to the conclusion that Paul tells James that the rumors are all false. How can we come to that conclusion? Well we can conclude this because if Paul would have confirmed the rumors that he was teaching against the law then James would have known the total truth about Paul’s lies and that he was setting a trap for him and the other Disciples! Could you imagine what James would have done if he knew Paul actually said the following verses?·
For Christ is the “END OF THE LAW” for righteousness to everyone that believeth. ROMANS 10:4· For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are“NOT UNDER THE LAW” but under grace. ROMANS 6:14
Do you think if James would have heard or read the two verses above from Paul that James would think Paul was a man of God? Of course not! James and the other followers of Jesus might have killed Paul on the spot. Since James did not know of verses like the ones above Paul is temporarily safe. Still unsure about Paul, in Acts 21:22-25 James decides to test Paul’s character and make him prove himself to them and to the other Jews at the festival. James orders Paul to go into the temple with four new converts of Jesus’ original ministry and perform the sin purification ritual in front of everyone! Now what was James’ reason for making Paul do these rituals? The end of verse 24 tells us the reason and also tells us what Jesus actually taught the true Disciples as well:·
…and all may “know” that those things whereof they were informed of thee, are “NOTHING”; but that thou (PAUL) thyself also walkest orderly, and “KEEPEST THE LAW.” ACTS 21:24
Compare the difference in the doctrines of Paul verses to that of the true Disciples of Jesus. Paul says the law has ended yet James says the law has not ended. Which one of these men should we believe? The one personally taught by Jesus to obey the law or the one who only claims to have seen an imaginary vision of Jesus? People with common sense will choose James because Jesus told him the truth. However we all know that common sense is really not all that “common” is it? Let’s continue…James tells Paul that he must do the purification ritual to prove to the people that the rumors about him were lies and that HE/PAUL does walk righteously and KEEPS THE LAW: Guess what folks? The purification offering includes the ritual of the: “ANIMAL SACRIFICES!” Yes the same ritual that Christians claim Jesus ended! I thought you should know… Now you and I have already read and know that Paul didn’t keep the law. We’ve already read the scriptures where Paul said that Jesus freed us from such purification rituals of the Mosaic Law right? So if Paul were a true Apostle of Jesus as he claims, Paul was supposed to refuse the order of James to enter into the temple to perform the rituals. If Paul were sincere about serving Jesus’ ministry then Paul was supposed to tell James directly to his face that Jesus freed us from the laws of Moses as he said in Galatians below! ·
For “I TESTIFY” again to every man that is CIRCUMCISED, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.4. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are FALLEN FROM GRACE. GALATIANS 5:3, 4
Being the coward that he is, Paul does not say any of this to James. So what do you think Paul’s response was when James gave Paul a direct order? Let’s see: ·
Then PAUL took the men, and the NEXT DAY purifying HIMSELF with them entered into the temple, to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification until that an OFFERING should be offered for every one of them. ACTS 21:26
The early Jewish Christians continued to do what Jesus instructed them to do, which is to follow the laws of Moses including the following:
1. Circumcising their sons.
2. Purification rituals of animal sacrifices in the temples
3. Keeping the traditions of their fathers.
4. Some of them even continued to take the Nazarite vow, which was a Mosaic practice of dedicating oneself to God and following strict rules of purity. (See Numbers 6:1-21.)
If Paul’s vision of Jesus was real then his loyalty should have been to Jesus and not with the Disciples. Paul’s obligation to Jesus would be to teach James and the other Disciples this new truth. Paul was supposed to teach them that Jesus has freed them from the rituals under the “LAW” and that we are now under “GRACE” and not under the “Law?” Paul should have used the words that he said in Galatians:·
For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law amdead to the law, that I might live unto God. GALATIANS 2:18, 19
In his secret gospels Paul says the following words as concerning obeying the Laws of Moses:· “If I now decide to obey the laws of Moses, the same laws which I Paul have destroyed in the minds of the people, then I have once again made myself a sinner. I will not do that ever again because I am dead to God’s laws!” Now the above scripture is what Paul taught outside of the ear range of James and the other Disciples. This would be a bold and dynamic statement of faith if Paul would have said these things to James. However, Paul’s true cowardly character comes out instead and Paul ignores his own gospels and does what James commands! Does that make any sense! This proves to us that Paul would do anything to fool the Disciples and the people and get them to trust him. Paul writes to us and admits he does these very things often:You shouldn’t be surprised at Paul’s actions because remember, infiltrating the ranks of the Disciples was his initial mission.·
To the Jews I became as a (JEW), in order to win Jews; to those under the law I became as one under the LAW–-THOUGH (not being) myself under the law–that I might win those under the law. 1st CORINTHIANS 9:20
Paul admits that even though he really does not obey any of the Mosaic Law, he pretended to be a JEW so that he could win them over. Paul is a deceiver/Satan! Paul’s only reason for going into the Temple and doing the Laws of Moses was to fool the Disciples. Paul will do or say anything to be accepted by the Jews and by the Disciples… Now Paul has done as James commanded and performed all of the rituals of the Mosaic Law. So far Paul has successfully hid his true ministry from James and the other disciples. Paul now feels like his mission of infiltrating the ranks of the Disciples is near. Since there was no one around to dispute Paul about the lies in his ministry, Paul feels like he has accomplished his task of successfully convincing James that he is a sincere convert. Paul feels like he is about to be officially embraced by the Disciples until something drastic happens!
And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him. ACTS 21:27 Asian Jews have traveled down to Israel for the great festival. They have heard Paul’s hidden gospels up close! We now have witnesses that can testify against Paul’s lying ministry! Let’s see what they had to say:·
Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men everywhere against the people, and the LAW, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place.ACTS 21:28
Act 21:28 crying out, “Men of Israel, help! This is the man who is teaching everyone everywhere against the people and the law and this place. Moreover, he even brought Greeks into the temple and has defiled this holy place.”
Wooooooow! Paul is now busted !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Paul lied right to James’ face and said that he does obey all of the laws of Moses. Paul even went as far as going into the temple and offering the animal sacrifices just to prove to James and the others that he is sincere. The Asian Jews have just revealed Paul’s hidden ministry to all of the Jews at the festival and temple. James now knows the truth and there is nothing Paul can say. The infiltration plan of Paul’s has failed miserably! James knows that Paul is the false prophet that Jesus warned him and the other Disciples about earlier in Matthew 24: ·
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show GREAT SIGNS and WONDERS insomuch that, if it“WERE” possible, they shall deceive the very ELECT. MATTHEW 24:23-25
James is not deceived and neither are the “ELECT/CHOSEN” Jews! In Acts 21: 30 39 James withdraws and leaves this liar to deal with the angry Jewish mobs. The angry mob seizes Paul and starts to beat him unmercifully in the streets.
Act 21:30-31 ESV Then all the city was stirred up, and the people ran together. They seized Paul and dragged him out of the temple, and at once the gates were shut. (31) And as they were seeking to kill him, word came to the tribune of the cohort that all Jerusalem was in confusion.
Suddenly the Roman soldiers step in and seize Paul SAVING him from the hands of the Jewish mob. Even though the truth has come out about his true intentions Paul attempts to reason with the angry Jews. It is in Acts 22:1-21 that Paul then tries to convince the Jews of his alleged Damascus Road Conversion story. After the Jews hear all of the heinous things that he has done they know he is not one of them and proclaim the following:·
And they gave him audience unto this word, and then lifted up their voices, and said, away with such a fellow from the earth: for it is not fit that he should live. ACTS 22:22
Act 21:33-37 ESV Then the tribune came up and arrested him and ordered him to be bound with two chains. He inquired who he was and what he had done. (34) Some in the crowd were shouting one thing, some another. And as he could not learn the facts because of the uproar, he ordered him to be brought into the barracks. (35) And when he came to the steps, he was actually carried by the soldiers because of the violence of the crowd, (36) for the mob of the people followed, crying out, “Away with him!” (37) As Paul was about to be brought into the barracks, he said to the tribune, “May I say something to you?” And he said, “Do you know Greek?
To quiet the screams of the crowds Paul is placed in shackles and led away into the castle by the Roman guards. All is now over right? Wrong! It is just beginning…
I am above the law! I AM A ROMAN! Paul of Tarsus…
Paul is arrested for incensing a riot among the Jews near the Hebrew Temple.In Acts 22 Paul now knows that his infiltration plans have vanished. Seeing no reason to keep up the charade of being “Jewish,” Paul shows his true nature again. He is now a ROMAN!The Chief Captain commands the Soldiers to bind and whip Paul until he confesses his crimes against the people. Fearful, Paul wants to SAVE his own skin and now decides that he is no longer a filthy “JEW” but instead an honorable and distinguished “ROMAN!”
And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a “ROMAN” and un-condemned? ACTS 22:25
Act 21:37-39 ESV As Paul was about to be brought into the barracks, he said to the tribune, “May I say something to you?” And he said, “Do you know Greek? (38) Are you not the Egyptian, then, who recently stirred up a revolt and led the four thousand men of the Assassins out into the wilderness?” (39) Paul replied, “I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no obscure city. I beg you, permit me to speak to the people.”
Since the chances of being accepted by James are totally over Paul decides to pull out his Roman badge of honor before the soldiers can punish him. Paul is not fearful of these soldiers because he knows that no true Roman can be beaten by a lowly civil servant soldier.
Then the Chief Captain came and said unto him, Tell me art thou a “ROMAN?” (HE/(PAUL) SAID YEA)! ACTS 23:27
The Captain doesn’t beat Paul and sets him free. Are you a “JEW“ or are you “ROMAN?“ My Brothers and Sisters as you can see Paul is a Chameleon. He will change his colors, religions or ethnicity whenever it is in HIS best interests! If it walks like a devil, if it talks like a devil, then it usually is a“DEVIL!” Paul never feared these soldiers at all because he had gone through this process once before in an earlier chapter of ACTS and acknowledged himself to be a ROMAN there as well:
And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul. The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace. But Paul said unto them, they have beaten us openly uncondemned, BEING ROMANS, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? Nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out. And the sergeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that THEY WERE ROMANS. And they came and besought them, and brought them out, and desired them to depart out of the city. ACTS16: 36-39
So as you can see Paul is very clever and he knows how to avoid hazardous situations. Let’s get back to the end of the story… The Roman Captain saves Paul from the hands of the mob. The Jews are outraged that the Roman soldiers have taken Paul from them. In Acts 24:1-9 Ananias the high priest does not know that Paul was working for the Greco-Romans and goes to the governor to demand custody of Paul. The Governor lets Paul speak in his own defense about the accusations against him:·
“Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship. And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city; neither can “they” PROVE the things whereof they now accuse me. ACTS 24:11, 13
Just like he lied to James, once again Paul lies to the Jews and conceals his true Satanic ministry. As we can see Paul is in total denial of his own Gospels. Paul smugly pleads for his freedom because none of his accusers can prove that he was teaching against the Laws of Moses. Guess what? Paul is right on that point because there are no tape recorders or video to show his lies! No one can prove this unless his gospel letters show up or one of the Greeks come and testify, and we know that is not going to happen.You are not going to believe what Paul says next!·
“But this I CONFESS UNTO THEE that after the way which they call HERESY, SO WORSHIP “I” the God of my fathers, BELIEVING “ALL THINGS” which are written in “THE LAW” and in the Prophets. ACTS 24:14, 15
Can you believe the lies this man will swear to even in a court of law? Paul makes a Solemn Oath and SWEARS in front of the eyes of God and says:· “Oh council I SWARE TO YOU, the Heresy these men speak about me is untrue! “I worship ONLY the God of our Fathers and I don’t believe that Jesus was the Messiah, I believe and FOLLOW all of the things (CIRCUMCISION INCLUDED) which are written in the LAW? Huh? Does this man have a conscience at all? How can he stand in the eyesight of God and then swear that he believes and obeys all things which are written in the “Laws of Moses?” We know that this man is a total liar because of verses like the ones below:·
I became as one under the LAW–-THOUGH not being (Myself) under the LAW. 1ST CORINTHIANS 9:20 &·
Just remember that God “DOESN’T CARE” whether“WE (EAT) IT OR NOT,” We are “NO WORSE OFF” if WE “DON’T” eat it, and “NO BETTER OFF” if WE “DO” eat it. TYNDALE 1ST CORINTHIANS 8:8
Is it okay to lie in front of God to save your own life? No! Paul lies over and over again. Now after being captured and facing death Paul abandons his own gospel views of Jesus and claims that he absolutely believes all of the Laws of Moses and that he follows every part of it and every statute: What is your opinion of Paul now? Johnny Cochran couldn’t do a better job of defense than this! According to Paul’s own testimony, we are not under “Grace” but we are still under the Laws of Moses! Did Paul forget his own writings when he claims YHWH made a big mistake and gave us a faulty Law that no one could follow?·
For “IF” the first covenant had been “FAULTLESS” then should no place have been sought for the second. “For finding “FAULT” with them, he saith, Behold, the days come saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.” HEBREWS 8:7,8
Clearly this man believed YHWH was a God of errors before his trial. Wouldn’t you expect Satan to confess the very same words?Total Blasphemy here folks! So according to Paul YHWH is a faulty God and gave us a law to purposely lead us to Hell. Amazing huh? Paul then goes on to misquote and pervert Jeremiah 31:31 for his own satanic purposes! If this man cannot make up his own mind about who he will serve why should we listen to him at all? Now remember Paul told us that Jesus allegedly became our last sacrifice! This means he believes no other Mosaic sacrifice was needed. By Paul’s own admission he lies and tells the Council that his original purpose for coming to Jerusalem was to eagerly and willingly offer up Alms and to perform the Purity Animal Sacrifices cleansing rituals in the temple:·
Now after many years “I CAME” to bring “ALMS” to my nation, and “OFFERINGS.” ACTS 24:17
As we can see from Paul’s own mouth he did not represent YHWH or Jesus! Now some may say that Paul is saying that he only came to pay taxes and/or to do charity work. That is not true because of the next verse:·
Whereupon certain Jews from Asia found me“PURIFIED” in the “TEMPLE”, neither with multitude, nor with tumult. ACTS 24:18
Here we have Paul blaming the Asian Jews for his troubles! Remember it was these Asian Jews that exposed Paul’s treachery to James, the head of the original Disciples. IFJesus has freed us from the sacrifice then explain why Paul is doing the Purification ritual in the Temple? When referring back to the beginning of this chapter you will see the reason why Paul was doing the purification ritual. It was only to fool the True Disciples into believing and accepting Paul into the ministry. If Paul really represented God he would have, as he lies about in his gospels, “BOLDLY PROCLAIMED” the Gospel of Jesus Christ had Jesus actually said anything to Paul. We now know that Jesus said nothing to Paul period. Lastly, Paul is arrested and spends two years in jail. After Paul is released he is a beaten and broken man. Two years of imprisonment builds up a lot of animosity and hatred for the Disciples. Paul still knows that there is money to be made in what he is teaching and after his release Paul starts once again preaching his poisonous message to the foreign Jews and Gentiles. Even though Paul will never be accepted by the true Disciples of Jesus, Paul knows that there is still a chance to reap a financial harvest by claiming to be an Apostle of Jesus. Paul leaves Jerusalem and goes throughout the Gentile countries and converts them to his warped style of Jesus. Before Paul’s ministry started, the Jewish followers of Jesus were no different from any other Jew. These new converts of Paul needed an exciting new name. Acts 11:26 lets us know where the term Christian really came from. It was from Paul! ·
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. ACTS 11:26
The term: Christian came from the Gentile lands of Paul’s travels. Now you officially know the history of the word Christian. You now know more than your own ministers…The Disciples of Jesus are known abroad in other countries. Paul knows that the information highway is very slow. No one in the Gentile countries will know that James didn’t trust Paul and that Paul’s true treachery was uncovered in Jerusalem. Paul uses this knowledge to his advantage and preaches throughout the lands. To the lands that are familiar with James and the other Disciples, Paul secretly uses James as a reference to win over the Jewish and Gentile people in the foreign lands. Let’s read the lies of Paul:·
And when James, Cephas (Peter) and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision. GALATIANS 2:9
Wow! This man has no conscience at all! The Galatians did not know that Paul was lying.
James never gave Paul the right hand of fellowship. James never commissioned Paul to teach a doctrine exclusively to the Gentiles communities. Paul started teaching the pagan Gentiles because the Asian Jews exposed Paul’s false doctrines to the original Disciples and they no longer wanted anything to do with Him! Paul’s false teaching doctrine became so outrageous that even two of his own followers Silas and Timotheus could no longer accept his lies!Let’s look at the proof of this point directly from the scriptures: In the beginning of Acts chapter 18 verses 1 thru 4, Paul is teaching the Jews and Greeks his warped gospel version in the synagogue along with another Jewish man by the name of Aquila. Even though you see the word “Greeks” in the verse it does not necessarily mean the Anglo Pagan Greeks. Remember the scripture says that Paul was teaching inside of the actual Synagogues every Sabbath. Pagan Greeks were not permitted into the Holy temples. So this means that Paul was teaching Grecian Jews in the temple and not the Gentiles. (Remember this point). In verse 4 the scripture lets us know that Paul was not only reasoning and teaching the Jews inside of the temple it says that he was also persuading most of them to his side of thinking. Silas and Timothy come to town and hear what Paul is teaching the Jews and openly opposes Paul’s doctrine:·
And when they (Timothy/Silas) opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean; from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles. ACTS 18:6
So as you can see this confrontation between Silas and Timothy was the turning point when Paul separates himself from the Jews. There were many rumors that Paul was teaching against circumcision and against the Laws of Moses. Silas is finally able to hear Paul’s satanic gospels first hand and openly rebukes Paul for teaching a false doctrine inside of the synagogues. Paul is outraged that two of his own converts have opposed him in front of the other Jews. James wouldn’t accept Paul, the other Disciples wouldn’t accept Paul and now two of his own fellow Jews have also rebuked him and his false gospels.Paul get’s angry and says from “Henceforth” which means: “FROM THIS POINT ON!” So from that particular point of time and on, Paul decides to denounce Judaism and the true message of Jesus and invents his own doctrines and teaches the world a false gospel that is backed with torture, greed and rape. Paul is free from the Laws of Moses to become the foremost authority of the satanic pagan inspired gospel of the Gentiles which is known today as: Romanized Christianity.
Paul is the enemy and adversary of God. Never let the sons of Satan lead you astray again. Shalom/Salaam/Selah…
