“I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him,”
What does “messianic sccret” mean?
“In this miracle we see an example of the messianic secret.”
Christians claim Jews murdered God’s Son because they did not accept (recognize) him as being THEIR messiah. Appears to be a Roman Savior – of slavery – to me! Tell it to The Mother Truckers! Opening up God’s Kingdom of Jews to Gentiles – IS VERY POLITICAL!
“Part of Wrede’s theory involved statements in the New Testament by Jesus to demons who recognize his divine nature as well as to his followers not to reveal to others that he is the Messiah. Wrede suggested that this theme was not historical but was an addition by the author of Mark. Wrede’s broad concept of the Messianic Secret also involved the use of parables by Jesus.”
Jesus was turned into a Pro-Roman, Pro-Slavery Anarchist Control Freak. No way could he be the Son of the Abolitionist God of the Jews. It is becoming clear that Trump and his followers are Anti-Government Anarchists – who pretend to be Christians – for now. But the Anarchy in Canada is coming to America because White Racists hate government – and will hate the Republican Party. They will destroy all vestiges of society including the Welfare-Medical Healing and Aid for the Poor. They talk about starving major Blue Cities – because they were forced to STOP at a red light. They are going to destroy our society because they say they have a right – not to be told what to do! How many want to stop women from getting an abortion?
Jesus was teaching the Jubilee Liberty – as were many Jewish Saints. This led to a massive rebellion and war with Rome – that the Jews lost. After this, fact, Jesus is turned into a Pro-Roman lover of Slave Masters – who says his healing and lesson is meant for GENTILES. Who turned Jesus into a Pro-Roman Quisling – and why! Why was Paul chosen to bring Jesus’ message to Gentiles – IF JESUS IS DOING THAT? Why didn’t he ask the Centurian – to prepare his way – TO ROME? Prepare a Messianic Banquet – IN ROME – at the table of the Slave Masters! Why is the leper commanded not to tell anyone, but, get a seal of healing from a Jewish priest. Why not get this seal -from a Roman priest? Didn’t Paul go to Rome? Is he disguised……AS JESUS?

Jesus Heals a Man With Leprosy
8 When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. 2 A man with leprosy[a] came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
3 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
Jesus was very impressed with the officer’s faith and compassion. He said, “I have never found anyone in Israel with faith like this.”
Jesus was saying that the Roman officer’s faith was greater than the faith of Jewish people. As a result the servant was healed (from a distance).
He shockingly said that there will be people who will be rejected from the Kingdom. This would have surprised Jewish listeners as they expected entrance to the Kingdom of God because they were born Jewish. Jesus emphasises that one must have genuine faith to enter the Kingdom of God.
A number of GOP senators, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, have rebuked the national party over the resolution, which was overwhelmingly approved Friday, and said Republicans’ focus should be on defeating Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections rather than attacking and alienating members of their own party.
“It was a violent insurrection for the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election from one administration to the next. That’s what it was,” McConnell said Tuesday of the January 6 attack.
The issue regarding the RNC-passed resolution, he continued, is whether the national party committee should be “singling out members of our party who may have different views from the majority. That’s not the job of the RNC.”
“The purpose of a political party, whether it’s Republican or Democrat, is to bring in as many members as you can,” Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa told reporters Tuesday. “I like to think of the Republican Party as being a big-tent party, everybody is welcome, and I like to think of us as candidates but also our party concentrating on what we can do for 2022, taking over control of the Congress.”
Senator Susan Collins of Maine said Monday evening that Republicans began 2022 with a “decided advantage” on issues that will be crucial to the outcome of the November elections.
But, she warned, “every moment that is spent relitigating a lost election or defending those who have been convicted of criminal behavior moves us further away from the goal of victory this fall.”
The censure resolution called on the RNC to “immediately cease any and all support” of Cheney and Kinzinger as members of the GOP and claimed their conduct “has been destructive to the institution of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Republican Party and our republic, and is inconsistent with the position of the conference.”
The resolution also admonished the pair for “participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse,” a characterization of the events of January 6 that was chided by GOP senators.
“It could not have been a more inappropriate message,” Senator Mitt Romney of Utah told reporters Monday. “One, to sanction two people of character as they did. But number two, to suggest that a violent attack on the seat of democracy is legitimate political discourse is so far from accurate.”
Romney said he exchanged text messages with RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who is his niece, about the resolution and expressed his “point of view.”
On the impact the measure could have on Republicans’ success in November’s elections, Romney said, “Anything that my party does that comes across as being stupid is not going to help us.”
Looking ahead to GOP’s efforts to regain majorities in the House and Senate, North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis said voters are concerned about the economy and COVID-19, and want their elected officials to be focused on the future.
He also rejected the notion that those who descended upon the Capitol and breached the building, temporarily halting the Congress’s counting of state electoral votes, were “engaged in legitimate political discourse.”
“The minute you entered the Capitol building, it was no longer discourse, it was riot,” Tillis said Tuesday. “And people that crossed that line — no question in my mind there were people on the lawn that came there to voice their opinion. They went home peacefully. Anyone who entered the Capitol complex, it’s no different than entering a home or business, they need to be held accountable for what they did. That’s not discourse.”
Some House Republicans leaders, though, were less critical of the RNC for the resolution.
“The RNC has every right to take any action,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik of New York, who replaced Cheney as GOP conference chair. “And the position that I have is that you’re ultimately held accountable to voters in your district, voters who you represent. And we’re going to hear the feedback and the views of voters pretty quickly here this year.”
Stefanik said Republicans “condemn the violence on January 6.”
House Republicans ousted Cheney from her post as conference chair last year after she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump for his role in the January 6 assault. She and Kinzinger were selected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to serve on the select committee examining the attack and events surrounding it in July, after which a group of conservative lawmakers called for Cheney and Kinzinger to be removed from the Republican conference for accepting the appointments.
