It appears the self-elected Evangelical leaders see Trump’s election as a ADDITION to the world-wide ministry of Jesus. But for a few passages, Jesus does not INFORM his Jewish disciples they are on a world-wide mission to save infidels and pagans. Paul is the mortal who makes this claim. I doubt Jesus blinded his on the road to Damascus.
In my newspaper you can read my declarations that say God bid me to be a Nazarite – and become a Republican. My friends were confused. I told them this Dark Hour was coming, where God and our Democracy has been taken hostage by Satan and his followers. Satan means “advisory”. Trump is Satan.
“Thou shall not take the Lord’s name in vain!”
“No taxation without representation!”
Mitch McConnell declared it is his will, and the will of Republican leaders that the Democrats have no REPRENTATION – even though they are – THE WINNERS! The Republican-evangelical Tea Party claim they uphold citizens who are being taxed without representation. On this day, I declare every Christian-Republican who believe the Democrats cheated them out of some victories – not represented by God. God is not a loser. To act like He is, is treachery and blaspheme. Samson was a Nazarite who slay the enemy of God with the jawbone of a ass. God only needs – ONE TRUE CHAMPION!

Jesus founded a Democracy and led a Tax Rebellion. He also restored the Jubilee. Jesus was an Abolitionist. A great grandson of slave owners in South Carolina was led by God to discover this truth. The long argument is over as to who owns America. I am the Go’el Redeemer of Jesus. God has given me…….The Deed!
My ancestor, Patriot Samuel Rosamond, bought two homes on Bay Street in Charleston in 1786. This makes us one of the Southern Gentry, we making one of the earliest real estate deals as a Free Nation. That Confederate flag – belongs to me! Surrender it!

But a certain Judas, a Gaulanite from a city named Gamala, who
had enlisted the aid of Saddok, a Pharisee, threw himself into the
cause of rebellion. They said that the [tax] assessment carried
with it a status amounting to downright slavery, no less, and
appealed to the nation to make a bid for independence [Josephus,
ANTIQUITIES 18.4, LCL].
As for the fourth of the philosophies, Judas the Galilean set
himself up as leader of it. This school agrees in all other
respects with the opinions of the Pharisees, except that they have a
passion for liberty that is almost unconquerable, since they are
convinced that God alone is their leader and master [Josephus,
Jews that were accused by Antiochus had any hand in it, but that all
was done by some vile persons greatly in debt,
who supposed that if they could once set fire to the market-place,
and burn the public records, they should have no
further demands made upon them. So the Jews were under great
disorder and terror, in the uncertain expectations
3. At the very same time with the forementioned revolt of the
Germans did the bold attempt of the Scythians against the Romans
occur; for those Scythians who are called Sarmatians, being a very
numerous people,transported themselves over the Danube into Mysia,
without being perceived; after which, by their violence, and
entirely unexpected assault, they slew a great many of the Romans
that guarded the frontiers; and as the consular legate Fonteius
Agrippa came to meet them, and fought courageously against them.
Let the Christians in the Red States make atonement for the sin of
slavery, and rid themselves of the false priests who used God’s
words, and Jesus’s teaching to justify slavery. Surley they came
upon the Jubilee Year, and the sound of Jesus blowing the Shofar in
their ear, but, they chose to ignore that Judgement Day. How dare
they force their own upon us, and this Democracy!
Your sorrow will soon turn to Joy.”
In Luke 4.18-19 we read of the beginning of Jesus’ ministry in a Synagogue in Nazareth. He stands up to be recognized, the attendant hands him the Torah roll, specifically the roll of Isaiah, to read, and he seeks a particular, Messianic passage, Isaiah 61.1-2, Luke 4.18-19).
‘The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because God has anointed me to preach good news to the meek, he has sent me to bind up the broken of heart, to proclaim liberty to captives and to those who are prisoners, freedom, to proclaim the Jubilee year of the Lord and the day of God’s vengeance’.
The terms that Jesus was using in his discourse were those associated with Sabbatical Years, and with the Jubilee Year that was observed every fiftieth year. In this year all the debts of the poor were absolved, and slaves set free. Jubilee Years were not being celebrated by the Jews in the 1st century, yet the ordinary seven-year sabbatical cycle was very much in evidence among the Jews and Samaritans. The last time the Jubilee was celebrated was in 121 BCE.
I suspect Jesus was calling for the reinstatement of the Jubilee Year and thus the severe questioning from the Jews as to his authority to call for the freeing of slaves, the forgiveness of all debts by the poor who became slaves to fellow Jews in order to pay a debt, and, the non-payment of taxes during the Jubilee Year, which would get him in trouble with the Romans and the wealthy Sanhedrin who approved of Roman rule because it created a upper class, the very thing the Jubilee Year was designed to prevent from being permently established. The wealthy Jews who saw loss of revenue, and the return of lands to the poor tenants, tried to murder Jesus, who I suspect has produced Revelations, proclaiming himself the Alpha and Omega, the first and last days when God will have his vengeance and Judgement. The Jubilee Year began on the Day of Atonement.
Here is the proof that Jesus was preaching Orthodoxy
“I have trodden the wine trough alone, And from the peoples there was no man with Me. I also trod them in My anger And trampled them in My wrath; And their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments, And I stained all My raiment. 4“For the day of vengeance was in My heart, And My year of redemption has come. 5“I looked, and there was no one to help, And I was astonished and there was no one to uphold; So My own arm brought salvation to Me, And My wrath upheld Me.…
I will show you that Jesus was the author of Revelations that are
composed of, and are a continuation of the visions of Ezekiel,
Haggai, and Zechariah, and are the only valid End Times. I declare
the End Time visions of Margaret McDonald, John Darby, and the
Plymouth Brethren, a false revelation, as it is clear “the
vengeance” of the Lord already came when Jesus was ceremoniously
crucified on the cross in Matthew 27:53, where we read how he
raised the dead from the `Valley of Dry Bones’ as seen in the vision
It is written in the Torah, “You shall sanctify the 50th year and
proclaim freedom throughout the land for all its inhabitants; it
shall be the Jubilee year for you, you shall return each person to
his ancestral heritage and you shall return each to his family. It
shall be a Jubilee Year for you – the 50th year – you shall not sow,
you shall not harvest its after-growth and you shall not pick what
was set aside of it for yourself. For it is a Jubilee Year, it shall
be holy to you; from the field you eat its crop.” (Leviticus 25:10-
Basically, these verses indicate that the Jubilee requires all debts
between Jews to be annulled. Also, any Jew that sold his or herself
into slavery is released, whether they worked the amount of time
they promised, or not. Rashi, (11th century France) points out the
world Jubilee is related to the Hebrew word for “ram,” alluding to
the fact that the Jubilee year is proclaimed by the blast of a ram’s
horn! Nachmanides adds that the word Jubilee is also related to the
Hebrew word which means “to move around.” Thusly, we are reminded
that all Jews who had sold themselves into slavery, or were shackled
(so to speak) by debt, were now released from their bonds and were
given the freedom TO MOVE AROUND.
It is remarkable that the visions of the Temple received by Ezekiel
and the messages of the new Temple received by Haggai and Zechariah
were all received in correspondence with the epoch of a jubilee year.
If a jubilee year was celebrated in this modern era–as a projection
of jubilees celebrated in the Temple Era–it is probable that the
next jubilee year would correspond to the year 2029-2030 (reckoned
from the autumn). However, due to some uncertainty inherent in the
assumptions currently made and due to the antiquity of the cited
source material, the current analysis should be considered to be
Jesus does not identify those who will receive the vineyard. Within
the context of Mark’s gospel they are usually considered to be the
Gentiles. But while this is true for Matthew’s gospel, the “others”
may, in fact, imply the disenfranchised lower classes to whom the
evangelist Mark addressed his gospel. Moreover, originally in the
context of Jesus’ own ministry, the “others” were probably intended
to be the very people who were exploited by the ruling elite, the
peasants whose agriculture produced the wealth with they were able
to appropriate by their office and power. The promise of the jubilee
year will be realized. The land will be restored to the dispossessed
peasants who as tenants produced the agricultural wealth which the
ruling class redistributed for their own aggrandizement.
Jesus’ parables violated the ordered system of land tenure and
economic exchange in the world of his day. The rule of God, which
his stories metaphorically disclosed, will undermine the ruling
elite’s self-serving systemic structures and institutions. Under the
expansion of God’s rule those who exploit, dispossess and
marginalize the weak and the poor, will forfeit all their advantages
of power and wealth. In spite of the continuation of the stark
realities of the socio-economic pyramid benefiting the upper
classes, the realities of redemption and restoration, which the year
of jubilee envisioned, will be actualized, not only for Israel but
for all the nations and peoples of the world.
Rostovtzeff offers a comprehensive view of land tenure in Palestine:
“Judaea, Samaria, and still more Galilee are studded with hundreds
of villages inhabited by peasants, Samaria, and still more Galilee
are studded with hundreds of villages inhabited by peasants, above
whom stands a native aristocracy of large landowners, who are
patrons of the villages… Still more opulent are the officials of
the kings and tetrarchs, and the kings and tetrarchs themselves and
their families. Lastly, we find estates of the Roman emperor himself
and the imperial family, and even a military colony established by
Vespasian at Emmaus after the Jewish War. Such were the conditions
of life in Palestine, and in later times there was clearly no
change, except that landed proprietors of other than Jewish origin,
like Libanius, increased in number.”
Jusus’ parable of the wicked tenants supports Rostovtzeffs socio-
economic analysis, mirroring the institution of prebendal domains
and its concomitant feature of absentee landownership which
dominated Galilean agriculture. A landlord has established a
vineyard: vines have been planted, a wall has been constructed, a
vat has been dug, a tower has been built, the vineyard has been
leased to tenants and the owner has withdrawn-most likelly to his
place of residence in another area of Palestine or possibly even
