Mark Chapter 9

This is the most doctored document I have ever read – over an over! WTF! My minister forced me out of Bible Study when I asked good questions about this chapter. The original Disciples may have met John the Baptist, the Nazarite For Life, and heard him say he was ELIJAH RISEN FROM DEATH. Later, Pauline Christians ALTER the true mission of Jesus – and have him suffering on the cross! The testimony of the twelve is NEGATED. They don’t have a clue about – ANYTHING! This is why intelligent people have trouble becoming Christians. Becoming a STUPID RACIST REPUBLICAN is all that is required, lest you ask yourself…

“Jesus can’t be the Son of God – OR GOD! The whole text is MORE THAN FLAWED. God is not a TRICKY FOOL! Or – is he?”

I have promised to FIX the two Books – at the end of the world. Why should I? Most Christians love Trump and Marjorie Green. THINK!!! If the original Jewish Disciples HAD talked about what THEY SAW, then ALL JEWS would have ACCEPTED Jesus, not as their disciple, but…..AS WHAT?

Mark
Chapter 9

1And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

2And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.

3And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.

4And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.

5And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

6For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.

7And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

8And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

9And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.

10And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.

11And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?

12And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

13But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

14And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.

15And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.

16And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?

17And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;

18And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.

19He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.

20And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.

21And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.

22And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

23Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

24And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

25When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.

26And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.

27But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

28And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

29And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

30And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.

31For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

32But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.

33And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?

34But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.

35And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

36And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,

37Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

38And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

39But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

40For he that is not against us is on our part.

41For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

42And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

46Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

“Let the number of my Nazariteships be as the hairs of my head, or as the dust-particles of the earth, or as the sands of the sea”

Twenty-seven years ago I had a reading at the Berkeley Psychic Institute. The first thing I was told, was

“You died!”

I was also told this;

“People come into your being and take, take, take! You are powerless to stop them. I can’t see why.”

I was told I had two children. This is when I looked at my attempt to save Patrice and her children. Patrice and her family have been coming into my being via my daughter in order to take my Healing Energy – without having to do any work to save themselves. I was their Slave-Redeemer.

It is said King David was with the Philistines, and was their vassal. Did they adopt his Lord and His religion, for a little while – and corrupt it? Did they alter the Message in order that God sere them – as their slave?

When John the Baptist was born he was whisked away to a foreign land. Why? All thru the Diaspora Jews were taking the Vow of the Nazarite before they made a pilgrimage to the Temple. John was preparing their way, cleansing them of sins they picked up in heathen lands. John wanted them to behold THE LORD, not the son of the lord, but THE FATHER.

Satan-Paul confronts twelve disciples of John in Ephesus, who he claims were not baptized in the Nazarite Holy Spirit, and proceeds to do the job. James, the brother of Jesus, bid Paul to take the Vow of the Nazarite to prove he was not spreading a false teaching. Paul failed the test and was arrested and taken to Rome where he was beheaded. Jesus was a Nazarite after John, and was a mortal.

I have seen the coming of ‘The Terrible Day of our Lord’. For weeks our President has been trying to gather a collective force to fight ISIS.  The remains of John the Baptist are in the great mosque in Damascus where the Nazarite Church was chased by Satan-Paul. This church had restored the Rule of Judges and summoned God’s Champion.  Here is ‘The Rebirth of Samson.

Above we see two photos of me taken by my late sister. She wanted me to be her first male portrait. When she developed them, she was startled to see these strands of energy that surrounded me. These are the Strands of Angel Hair that have protected me, kept me from harm. My sister’s saw this angel standing at the foot of the bed, as did the old crone up the street. This angel came into my life when I was dying of whopping cough.  I saw a bright blue light come from the womb of my Aunt June when she kissed me good night. June Rosamond married Vincent Rice. They saw me as their child.

I am a anti-Zionist for the reason the State of Israel was not founded by Divine Redeemers, but by secular terrorists. I subscribe to Reform Judaism that is a Divine Diaspora. In the name of John and Samson, I bid Jews int eh Diaspora to take the Vow of the Nazarite, and in Spirit join forces against ISIS! Women could take the Vow of the Nazarite. There were women Judges and Redeemers, such as Deborah.

In our Presidents call for a coalition, why does not Israel answer this call, and come fight alongside Arabs and Muslim against the enemy of God? Consider the story of Gideon. This Jewish force can come from ‘The United States of America’.  I will clarify this possibility in coming posts.

Jon the Nazarite

Rabbinical literature identifies Samson with Bedan;[6] Bedan was a Judge mentioned by Samuel in his farewell address (1 Samuel 12:11) among the Judges that delivered Israel from their enemies.[19] However, the name “Bedan” is not found in the Book of Judges.[19] The name “Samson” is derived from the Hebrew word “shemesh”, which means the sun, so that Samson bore the name of God, who is called “a sun and shield” in Psalms 84:11; and as God protected Israel, so did Samson watch over it in his generation, judging the people even as did God.[6] Samson’s strength was divinely derived (Talmud, Tractate Sotah 10a).[6][20]

Bedan is named as the deliverer of Israelites in 1 Samuel 12:11. He is not mentioned elsewhere as a judge of Israel. Bp. Patrick and others hypothesis the name to be a contraction of ben Dan (“the son of Dan”) by which they suppose Samson is meant, as the Targum reads. The LXX, Syriac, and Arabic, however, refer to the name as Barak, instead of Bedan; and the two latter versions refer to Samson, instead of Samuel. These readings are adopted by Houbigant, and appear to be genuine, for it is not probable that Samuel would enumerate himself.

Academics have interpreted Samson as a demigod (such as Hercules or Enkidu) enfolded into Jewish religious lore, or as an archetypical folklore hero, among others. These views sometimes interpreted him as a solar deity, popularized by “solar hero” theorists and Biblical scholars alike.[30][31][32] The name Delilah may also involve a wordplay with the Hebrew word for night, ‘layla’, which “consumes” the day.[33] Samson bears many similar traits to the Greek Herakles (and the Roman Hercules adaptation), inspired himself partially from the mesopotamian Enkidu tale: Herakles and Samson both battled a Lion bare handed (Lion of Nemea feat), Herakles and Samson both had a favorite primitive blunt weapon (a club for the first, an ass’s jaw for the latter), they were both betrayed by a woman which led them to their ultimate fate (Herakles by Dejanira, while Samson by Delilah). Both heroes, champion of their respective people, die by their own hand: Herakles ends his life on a pyre while Samson makes the Philistine temple collapse upon himself and his enemies.

These views are disputed by traditional and conservative biblical scholars who consider Samson to be a literal historical figure and thus reject any connections to mythological heroes.[34] That Samson was a “solar hero” has been described as “an artificial ingenuity”.[35] Some biblical scholars suggest that Samson’s home tribe of Dan might have been related to the Philistines themselves. “Dan” might be another name for the tribe of Sea Peoples otherwise known as the Denyen, Danuna, or Danaans. If so, then Samson’s origin might be entirely Aegean.[36] These speculations are in stark contrast to the historical depictions expressed in the Bible and are therefore mutually exclusive.

The secrecy around the powerful medieval Order of the Knights Templar, and the speed with which they disappeared over the space of a few years, has led to Knights Templar legends. These range from rumors about their association with the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant, to questions about their association with the Freemasons, to searches for a lost treasure. Speculation about the Templars has increased because of references to them in bestselling books such as The Da Vinci Code and films such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and National Treasure.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_Templar_legends

Some historians and authors have tried to draw a link from Freemasonry and its many branches to the Templars. This alleged link remains a point of debate. Degrees in the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite such as the Knight of Saint Andrew, the Knight of Rose-Croix, and the 32nd Degree in Consistory make reference to a “Masonic Knights Templar” connection, but this is usually dismissed as being ceremonial and not historical fact.

John the Baptist
Saint John the Baptist, who was beheaded, is said also to be the source of Templar idolatry. As ludicrous as this may at first seem, it is commonly known that several bogus John the Baptist heads were around during this time. Could the Templars have possessed one of these heads? It is possible, as the Templars were said to possess many of the religious relics of the time. As supposed Poor Knights of Christ it is quite possible that the head of St. John the Baptist would be an object of devotion and guidance since his feast was to be celebrated by the command of the Templar Rule of Order.

The Head of Jesus Christ
In his book, “The Head of God,” Dr. Keith Laidler put forth the theory that the Templars were practitioners of a cult of the head, which dated back to ancient times. Laidler’s theory claims that Jesus Christ’s head was severed after His crucifixion and latterly fell into the hands of the Templars who venerated it as part of their cult. This head, Laidler claims is buried in the apprentice Pillar at Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland.

Following the conquest of Canaan by Joshua until the formation of the first Kingdom of Israel (ca. 1150–1025 BC), the Israelite Tribes formed a loose confederation. No central government existed in this confederation and in times of crisis, the people were led by ad hoc chieftains known as judges.[2]

In the Book of Judges, a cyclical pattern is given to show the need for the various judges: apostasy of the Israelite people, hardship brought on as punishment from God, crying out to the Lord for rescue.[3] The judges were the successive individuals, each from a different tribe of Israel, chosen by God to rescue the people from their enemies and establish justice and the practice of the Torah amongst the Hebrews.

Most judges acted primarily as military leaders in times of war. These leaders were thought of as being sent by God to deliver the people from a threat. After the threat had passed, the judge was generally expected to give up their position as military leaders. They were most likely tribal or local leaders, contrary to the Deuteronomistic historians portrayal of them as leaders of all of Israel,[7] however their authority was recognized by local groups or tribes beyond their own.[8] In accordance with the needs of the time, their functions were primarily martial and judicial, but not comparable to a king. All Biblical Judges performed judicial duities and the institute of Judges was separated from the institute of King (First Book of Samuel 10:25).

The stories follow a consistent pattern: the people are unfaithful to Yahweh and he therefore delivers them into the hands of their enemies; the people repent and entreat Yahweh for mercy, which he sends in the form of a leader or champion (a “judge”); the judge delivers the Israelites from oppression and they prosper, but soon they fall again into unfaithfulness and the cycle is repeated.[4]

  1. Israel “does evil in the eyes of Yahweh”,
  2. the people are given into the hands of their enemies and cry out to Yahweh,
  3. Yahweh raises up a leader,
  4. the “spirit of Yahweh” comes upon the leader,
  5. the leader manages to defeat the enemy, and
  6. peace is regained.

Judges chapter 5 gives the same story in poetic form. This passage, often called The Song of Deborah, may date to as early as the 12th century BC[1] and is perhaps the earliest sample of Hebrew poetry. It is also significant because it is one of the oldest passages that portrays fighting women, the account being that of Jael, the wife of Heber, a Kenite tent maker

http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Holidays/Fall_Holidays/Yom_Kippur/yom_kippur.html

It is used first by Amos and subsequently incorporated into prophetic and apocalyptic literature texts of the Bible. It relies on military images to describe the Lord as a “divine warrior” who will conquer his enemies. In certain prophetic texts of the Old Testament, the enemies of the Lord are Israel’s enemies and in these visions the day of the Lord brings victory for the people of ancient Israel. Other prophets use the imagery as a warning to Israel or its leaders and for them, the day of the Lord will mean destruction for the biblical nation of Israel. This concept develops throughout Jewish and Christian Scripture into a day of divine, apocalyptic judgment at the end of the world.[3]

The Day of the Lord is a biblical term and theme used in both the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and the New Testament. A related expression is the Great Day as in “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” which appears in both Old and New Testaments.

In the Hebrew Bible, a nazirite or nazarite, (in Hebrew: נזיר, nazir), refers to one who voluntarily took a vow described in Numbers 6:1–21. “Nazarite” comes from the Hebrew word nazir meaning “consecrated” or “separated”.[1] This vow required the man or woman to:

  • Abstain from wine, wine vinegar, grapes, raisins, intoxicating liquors,[2] vinegar distilled from such substances,[3] and eating or drinking any substance that contains any trace of grapes.[4]
  • Refrain from cutting the hair on one’s head; but to allow the locks of the head’s hair to grow.[5]
  • Not to become ritually impure by contact with corpses or graves, even those of family members.[6]

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/11395-nazarite

If one said, “May I be a Nazarite,” he became a Nazarite at once (Naz. i. 1). As a consequence of the universal custom, peculiar words and phrases, some of which are now unintelligible, were formulated for the taking of the vow (Naz. i. 1, ii. 1; p. 10a; Ned. 10a, b, et passim). “‘Let my hand, my foot be nazir,’ is not valid; ‘Let my liver [or some other vital part] be nazir,’ is valid” (Naz. 21b; Tos. to Naz. iii. 3). When the sanctuary was defiled at the time of the wars of the Maccabees the people assembled all the Nazarites before God as persons who could not be released from their vows (I Macc. iii. 49); yet when Nazarites returned from the Diaspora and found the sanctuary destroyed they were absolved from their vows (Naz. v. 4), although at the same time others took it (ib. v., end).

Queen Helena was a Nazarite for fourteen (or twenty-one) years (Naz. iii. 6; see Jew. Encyc. vi. 334, s.v. Helena), and Agrippa’s sister Berenice was at Jerusalem on account of a Nazarite vow taken before the outbreak of the great war against the Romans (Josephus,

The vow was taken also for the fulfilment of a wish, such as for the birth of a child

Women and slaves, who did not have full rights before the religious law, could take the Nazarite vow, but only with the consent of their husbands or owners, while the vow was not valid among the heathen (Naz. iv. 1-5, ix. 1, et passim). Fathers were allowed to dedicate minors, but mothers were forbidden to do so (ib. iv. 29b). The proper name “Nazira” may be connected with some such custom (Gen. R. lxxxii. end, et passim). Jesus is said to have been dedicated while still in the womb (Luke i. 15). Tradition regards not only Samson and Samuel, but also Absalom, as Nazarites, the last on account of his long hair (Naz. 4b). The duration of Nazariteship was voluntary, and ranged from one hour to a lifetime. In the former case, however, it really lasted for thirty days, which was also the period when no definite time was set (ib. i. 3; Sifre, Deut. 357). While the usual time was thirty days, two or more additional vows were generally taken, in which case each period was regarded as a separate Nazariteship, to be immediately followed, when duly completed, by the succeeding one (Maimonides, “Yad,” Nezirut, iii. 6). The period was at times measured by the number of days of the solar or the lunar year (Naz. i., end; Yer. Naz. 54b); or one might say: “Let the number of my Nazariteships be as the hairs of my head, or as the dust-particles of the earth, or as the sands of the sea” (Naz. i. 4). A Nazarite for life might cut his too abundant hair once a year, but a Samson Nazarite might not cut his hair under any circumstances, although he might defile himself by touching a corpse (ib. 4a). While no comb was allowed to touch the hair, it might be cleansed and arranged by other means (ib. vi., end). A proverb says, “Let the Nazarite go around the vineyard, but let him not approach it” (Shab. 13a and parallels; Num. R. x.).

Outside of Palestine and in the Middle Ages.

Nazarite vows were taken also outside of Palestine (Naz. v. 4; iii. 6). Besides Helena, Queen of Adiabene, Miriam of Palmyra is mentioned as a Nazarite (Tos. to Naz. iv. 10). While the Law stated that Nazariteship was equally valid in the country and outside it, in the time of the Temple and after its destruction there was a difference of opinion between the followers of Shammai and of Hillel: the former held that one who entered Palestine after the fulfilment of a prolonged period of Nazariteship must live there thirty days longer as a Nazarite, while the latter maintained that he must begin his vow anew (Naz. iii. 6; comp. Maimonides, “Yad,” Nezirut, ii. 20-21). The earlier and more universal custom agreed with the view of the school of Shammai, Josephus referring to the thirty days demanded, as above, in the passage already quoted—”B. J.” ii. 15, § 1. The observance of the Nazarite vow probably continued for many centuries, but was finally lost in asceticism and mysticism. No Nazarites are known in the Middle Ages.
