MUST READ!!!: IS JESUS CHRIST GOD? [Part 27]

Published

on

IS JESUS CHRIST GOD
IS JESUS CHRIST GOD: Zechariah 12:10 (NIV)
And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.
In many versions/translations, the expression “they will look on me” is used in Zechariah 12:10. Trinitarians therefore believe God was saying he’s the one who would come to earth to be pierced and killed for the sake of humanity. However, we realize from checking Hebrew texts that in Zechariah 12:10, no word was supplied where most English translators use the word “me.” That is to say that, the writers of the Bible didn’t use the word “me.” English translators did.
As a result, there are other versions that use “him” instead of “me,” while others read “they will look on the one…”
Revised standard version (Zech. 12:10).
And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of compassion and supplication, so that, when they look ON HIM whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a first-born.
Bible in Basic English Version (Zech. 12:10)
And I will send down on the family of David and on the people of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and of prayer; and their eyes will be turned to the one who was wounded by their hands: and they will be weeping for him as for an only son, and their grief for him will be bitter, like the grief of one sorrowing for his oldest son.
So clearly, versions differ on their translation of Zechariah 12:10. While some present it to suggest that Jesus is God or that God is the one who came to suffer for our sins, others present it to suggest that the verse was strictly a prophecy about the man Jesus Christ. This is correct even in the context of Zechariah 12:10. Read again and observe the progression. Even the versions that use “me” use “me” only once in the verse and continues with “him” or “he.” If Zechariah 12:10 was God speaking prophetically about his own sufferings, He couldn’t have used the word “me” just once in the verse, and then go on with the word “him.” He could have continued with “me” or “I.”
Most importantly, the proof that Zechariah 12:10 is wrongly translated in most versions lies in the new testament, in John’s account of the ministry of Jesus. Here, Zechariah 12:10 is quoted.
John 19:37
And again another scripture saith, They shall look on HIM whom they pierced.
So, although versions dispute over the right rendition of Zechariah 12:10, they do not disagree over John 19:37, which is clearly a reference to the old testament scripture in Zechariah. All versions use the word “him” or the phrase “the one” in John 19:37. None uses “me.”
So, clearly, Zechariah 12:10 is not talking about God, but about ‘him’ or ‘the one’ who will be pierced (Jesus Christ the Son of God).
Read the entire 53rd chapter of the book of Isaiah. Jesus, God’s son was the one who suffered and was pierced for our sins, not God (who scripturally, is a Spirit).
We draw today’s curtains at this juncture.
We deeply appreciate your commitment to reading this series.
Anticipate our next part.
Meanwhile, study more on this teaching.
Light shines.

BOOK: Lecrae’s new book “I Am Restored”

Published

on

By

HOW I LOST MY RELIGION BUT FOUND MY FAITH

THE NEVER-BEFORE-TOLD STORY OF LECRAE’S LOSS OF FAITH AFTER THE EXPERIENCES OF HIS PAST THREATENED TO RUIN HIS CAREER AND LIFE.

Two-time GRAMMY winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae had inspired millions with his redemptive and gut-honest art. But when his personal life spun into chaos, he was forced to face the buried impact of the unhealed wounds–sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression–that threatened to tear it all apart. Along the way, he realized the wounds we all carry have the potential to be unlikely guides to healing and freedom for ourselves, and others.

With vulnerable honesty and transformational yet simple steps you can apply today, Lecrae shares the personal practices he uses in his daily life for mental, emotional, and spiritual health. With powerful prose, he gives an unflinching look at the personal and public spaces that sadly hurt us so often–culture, politics, family, church, personal failure–and reminds us that learning to let go and forgive is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom God has for us.

I Am Restored is an inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration available now, and that we all desperately long for, because no matter what you’ve experienced, God is near, He hears, and He’s not done with you yet.

Corona Virus/5G: Let Us Assume That

Published

By

Let Us Assume that:
1) The cause of this pandemic is the 5-G technology.

2) The only answer to the pandemic is a vaccine to be administered with a chip.

Download-Button

3) The chip will be the fulfilment of the biblical prophecy of 666, the mark of the beast.

4) Anyone whether he is a believer or not, who takes the vaccine (with the chip) which is mark of the beast will be automatically lost forever!

5) Any one who refuses to take the vaccine will die from the virus or from hunger but he will be saved whether he is a believer or not!

Such a person will not even be allowed to buy or sell because he doesn’t have the mark of the beast but he will be saved forever! .

So, the only way out of the pandemic is to take the vaccine. The vaccine is the only way to survive now!

What is the Implication of all these?

If the above 5 points are correct it means that:

Salvation now is purely based on receiving or refusing the mark (the vaccine).

Even if one is a believer but takes the mark he will be lost. So, salvation now is purely based on what we do with the mark!
If you take the vaccine you shall be lost. If you reject the vaccine you shall be saved!

Salvation by faith in Christ Jesus is no longer valid. Christ died in vain. Jesus is no longer the message.

The vaccine is now the message!

Do you understand now?
