“I am your Retribution – Justice For All’

Said Another Way: September 2011
Joseph Pede Poetry: Chief rabbi calls black people ‘monkeys’ (kushi)

Trump’s middle name is John. Was he named after John The Baptist – also? Yesterday, at CPAC Donald John Trump spoke to the Christians in the audience giving them clear messages he was THEIR SAVIOR who would bring them Justice – alas! Meanwhile, in the Holy Land, 200,000 demonstrators took to the street in order to SAVE THE JUSTICE SYSTEM of Israel. This ia A LOT of people for such a small population. Do these protestors blame the Orthodox leaders, some who want the Temple rebuilt?

I have been saying for a year I am running out of time to finish my book – that keeps being rewritten by current events. I accuse Trump and his devout followers of – BLASPHEME! I am not alone.

In 1987 I read the New Testament for the first time, and was puzzled why Paul was accusing the Seven sons of Sceva – of blaspheme. They are – LEVITES – like John’s parents. Mary is a ‘Daughter of Aaron’ – too! At forty years of age I wondered why learned Jews were DOING the most difficult Healing Job there is – next to raising the dead – which Elijah and Elisha did. Was Paul and his followers successfully healing insane people? If so -too bad THE WAY they did this – GOT LOST! How many Christian Ministers who believe Trump is their savior, would like to drive demons out of homeless people, the first step in solving the homeless crisis. I voted for Governor Tina Kotek, because she vowed to help the homeless, the mentally ill, and substance abusers. All three condition apply to me. I have asked for help – and got it!

In my novel ‘Where Art Thou’ I suggest John the Baptist PREPARED THE WAY for a New Exodus -which I believe was a route to the New Promised Land, that Levite Priests established – before John and Jesus were born. I have looked at Holland as being THE DESTINATION – and the Crimea! I will show you The Way as part of my campaign for Nazarite President of the United States. This lesson is more than Biblical preaching. It is the first time a political candidate offers Historic Biblical Lessons and real Revelations in order to save our secular and political Democracy.

I ran for Governor of Oregon and 170 Citizens voted for me. If I can take this amount of votes away from Donald Trump (I am a Republican) then I may have done God’s work – as well as got those who have been led astray – back on the right path! Surely the Seven Son of Sceva would have chosen a easier task – if the KNEW they were spreading a False Teaching. Think about it. The Seven Sons were Kohens, destined to serve in the Temple…….I mean the Seven Sons and their father must have had SOME success driving out demons (before Paul came along) or, folks would have stopped bringing Their Mad to them. How many mad people do you know? Do any of them live in your attic or basement? Are these crazy people – your kin? are they Democrats – even Transvestites? Why didn’t the Chief of Priests in Jerusalem put a STOP to Sceva and his Sons? Paul says they gave him written permission to destroy followers of THE WAY. Looks to me – he is not done – after dead Jesus transformed him – somehow.

Was Paul a Levite – rival? There is no account as to what happened to the Seven Sons. What if – this is a lie, and some Jews in Anatolia were teaching a way – different to the Levite Priests in Jerusalem. Like what? How about – no one was required to be circumcised to be a Pilgrim of the Way. Then, Paul was demanding there be circumcision – before he changed his mind?

John prepared the way for many and was filled with the Holy Spirit – while in his mothers womb! What if – Jesus is the fictional creation of the Chief Priests in Jerusalem, and they also want Paul to lead a army into Ephesus to…WIPE OUT THE RIVAL LEVITES? Where did Paul – get an army?

John Presco

Nazarite Candidate for President

13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” 16 Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.

17 When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor.”


  • Acts 8:1
    Now Saul was consenting to his death. At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.
  • Acts 8:3
    As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison.
  • Acts 9:1-2
    Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

“In 2016, I declared: I am your voice,” he said, speaking for just over 100 minutes from a bright blue and red stage in a cavernous ballroom at the closing speech of the CPAC event in Maryland. “Today, I add: I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed: I am your retribution,” he said.

As I was researching I read a quote in “All the Women of the Bible” by Herbert Lockyre about how the Old Testament Elisheba and her sister-in-law Miriam are types and shadows of the New Testament Elizabeth and Mary.

” It is not only in the New Testament that Elisabeth and the Holy Mary are those associated together: their types in the Old Testament are in like manner combined… Elizabeth herself, it is said by Luke, was of the daughter of Aaron but it is mentioned in the book of Exodus that Aaron’s own wife was name Elisheba, that is Elizabeth (6:23); again we find in Luke, that the Virgin Mary was the cousin of Elizabeth, so in the former instance the sister of Aaron was named Miriam, that is Mary, for it is the same name; Miriam or Mary, the virgin prophetess, who took the lead of all the other women in singing the song of thanksgiving for the miraculous deliverance of Israel (15:20). Thus even now the Blessed Mary is followed by all other women in her signing her Magnificat; the virgin and the prophetess, she leads the sacred company in the Church unto this day” (From Issac Williams, “Female Characters of the Scriptures”)


The chief priests would have been from the tribe of Levi. Moses, Aaron, and Miriam were all Levites, as were thousands of other men and women. God indicated that the high priest had to be a direct descendant of Aaron. All priests were Levites, but not all Levites were priests. Only some of the Levites belonged to the Aaronic priesthood. Exodus 29:7–9 states, “

Maimonides portrays the Levites as a universal ideal for people of pure faith, ready to abandon the world and cultivate a life of inner tranquility and supreme wisdom. According to Maimonides, every individual whose spirit moves him and whose intelligence gives him the understanding to withdraw from the world to serve God and to know God, and who walks upright in the manner in which God made him, is totally consecrated, and God will grant him/her a place in the World to Come.

From the tribe of Levi, Aaron and his descendents were singled out to be the priests and serve in the Temple (see Exodus 28). Originally, God intended that the first-born of every Jewish family would be a Kohen, the priest who would serve as that family’s representative to the Holy Temple (Exodus 13:2Exodus 24:5). The decision to make the descendants of Aaron serve as priests, however, occurred after the Golden Calf incident at Mount Sinai (Exodus 32:26). At Sinai, only the Levites remained loyal to G-d by not worshipping the Golden Calf, and therefore the Levis were designated as the priestly tribe.

Today, Leviim are believed to be the direct patrilineal descendents of Levi, while Kohanim are Leviim who descend directly, through their fathers, from Aaron. Other Jews are assumed to come from one of the other tribes and are called, simply, Yisraelim. A convert to Judaism takes the status as a Yisrael. The only valid method of being a Levite (or Kohen) is to have an unbroken tradition, passed from generation to generation, stretching back to the time of Moses. In many Jewish communities, meticulous records were kept throughout the generations to ensure that ancestral lines remained clear. If one has no clear evidence, such as a family tradition, of descending from Levi or Aaron one should assume he/she is a Yisrael. Traditionally, women adopt the status of their husband, thus if a bat Kohen (daughter of a father who is a Kohen) marries a Yisrael, she and her children are Yisraelim.

Today in many synagogues, the first two aliyot (people called up to the Torah) are given to a Kohen and a Levi. Yisraelim, the majority of Jews, are called to the Torah only after the second aliyah.


It is not surprising that Rosemary Ruether has found the fullest development of New Testament anti-Jewish bias within the Gospel of John.1 Her estimate of the gospel’s anti-Jewish stance reflects the opinion of most exegetes.2 The reasons for this evaluation of the gospel are well-known and often repeated. First of all, John proclaims a replacement theology.3 What John’s Jewish contemporaries held dear the evangelist seems to have abolished and replaced with the Christian Jesus.


Acts 19:2-7 – Disciples of John the Baptist

Luke intended this paragraph to be read along with the previous unit, the introduction of Apollos as a disciple of John.  Just as Luke contrasted Barnabas with Ananias in 4:36-28 and 5:1-2, Apollos and the other disciples of John stand in contrast  One disciple heard John and accept Jesus as the Messiah (although not fully understanding the implications of the resurrection, most likely with respect for Gentile salvation), the other disciples heard John but were ignorant of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

John the Baptist

The dozen disciples of John indicate that even 20 years after John’s death there was a movement amount the Jews that held John to be a prophet and in some way kept his teachings alive. Perhaps the gospel of John gives us a similar hint, especially if it can be show that John wrote from Ephesus near the end of the first century.

These disciples cannot be considered Christians at this point since they had not yet received the Holy Spirit.  While Luke only uses “disciple” for believers in every other case in Acts, his use of μαθητής here is without a definite article, the such example in Acts.  At the very least these are unusual Christians, perhaps “fringe” Christians, similar to the “unusual, fringes of Judaism described in the first half of the book.  Paul’s question – did you receive the Holy Spirit – is equivalent to asked, “are you believers?”  Not only have these disciples not received the Holy Spirit, they do not even know that there is a Holy Spirit!

Paul asked them “into whom” or “into what” they were baptized.  The NIV obscures this a bit, interpreting the question as “who baptized you,” rather than “what was the medium in which you were baptized.” Witherington comments that the image of being immersed into the Holy Spirit was common in the early church, see Rom 6:3, 1 Cor 1:13, 15, 10:2, 12:13, Gal 3:27).  His point is that the “whom” of this verse cannot refer to water; he sees the baptism of the Holy Spirit as entry into saving faith, while baptism in water is entry into the Christian community (Acts, 571).

Since they had been baptized “in John’s baptism,” Paul explains that John’s baptism was not enough, it was a “baptism of repentance,” which looked forward to the ministry of Jesus.  One could not be saved at this point in history only by accepting the message of John, it is only through faith in Jesus that one can be saved (as Acts has made abundantly clear prior to this point in the book!)

As has happened at several points in the book of Acts already, there is a manifestation of the Holy Spirit (tongues and prophesy) after Paul lays hands on these disciples. There is no consistent “order of events” in Acts, sometimes the Spirit comes prior to baptism (10:44-48, Cornelius) and other times baptism is prior (19:1-7), and in the case of Apollos, there is no mention of a re-baptism or of the coming of the Spirit.   Perhaps this is because he properly understood the message of John as pointing forward to Jesus, but that is not clear.

In fact, this is the only case of re-baptism in the New Testament, even the twelve were not re-baptized into the name of Jesus, they only had experienced the baptism of John (although one wonders about Matthew, since he was called to be an Apostle after John’s ministry.)  The point of this brief narrative is to show that it is possible to have a limited knowledge of Jesus which is not enough to be saved – theologically there was nothing wrong with these disciples except that they did not quite believe enough.  They did not believe something that was wrong, but they did not take their belief to the full extent needed for salvation.

Here is another problem for Applying Acts – what do we make of these disciples?  Are these  disciples “partial believers” who have participated in a ritual (John’s Baptism) but did not believe enough to be actually Christians?  What is it that “saved” these disciples?   In any case, it is the reception of the Holy Spirit which demonstrates they are in fact now Christians.

Why had the disciples in Ephesus not received the Holy Spirit (Acts 19:1–7)?

receive Spirit Acts 19


During Paul’s third missionary journey, he encountered some men who are described as “disciples” who had not yet received the Holy Spirit. Luke recounts the incident: “Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples and asked them, ‘Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?’ They answered, ‘No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.’ So Paul asked, ‘Then what baptism did you receive?’ ‘John’s baptism,’ they replied. Paul said, ‘John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.’ On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. There were about twelve men in all” (Acts 19:1–7).

We know that, when a person is born again, the Holy Spirit takes up residence in that person’s life (1 Corinthians 6:19). If a person does not have the Holy Spirit, then he does not belong to Christ (Romans 8:9). So why is it that these men in Ephesus did not have the Holy Spirit, when it seems that they had believed?

The key is that they had not yet believed in Christ. They did not know about Jesus’ saving work (or the Holy Spirit’s indwelling) until they met Paul. A careful reading of the first part of Acts 19 reveals several facts about this group of twelve men: 1) They were “disciples”—but not of Christ. Rather, they were self-identified disciples of John the Baptist (verse 3). 2) They were not believers in the risen Lord Jesus Christ—Paul’s question about their conversion experience reveals that they knew nothing of the Spirit or His power (verse 2). 3) They had taken the first step—repentance of sins—but they had not taken the corresponding step—faith in Christ.

In short, the “Ephesus Dozen” were still living under the Old Testament economy. They saw the need of repentance and were still awaiting the Messiah. They did not know the Christian message.

A further clue of their spiritual condition is found in the preceding chapter. Apollos, an Alexandrian Jew and a skillful orator, had been preaching in Ephesus (Acts 18:24). However, “he knew only the baptism of John” (verse 25). The only information Apollos had about Jesus was what he had heard from John; thus, he knew Jesus was the Messiah, but he knew nothing of Jesus’ sacrificial death and resurrection. Two believers in Ephesus, Priscilla and Aquila, took Apollos aside and “explained to him the way of God more adequately” (verse 26). After he understood and received the gospel, Apollos became a great apologist for the Lord Jesus (verse 28).

It would seem that the twelve men whom Paul encountered were some of Apollos’ followers. They had been baptized for repentance, but they had not heard the whole gospel message. Paul filled them in on the details of Jesus’ death and resurrection—the essential elements of the gospel—and told them to believe (Acts 19:4). Once the men received Christ by faith, the Holy Spirit, true to form, filled them with His presence. They became new creations (2 Corinthians 5:17).

John the Baptist’s ministry was one of preparation for people to receive Christ (Mark 1:2). He preached repentance of sins, and, as people repented, they showed their change of heart by an outward cleansing. But simply repenting of sin is not enough. We must have Christ. John himself understood the limitations of his ministry: “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire” (Matthew 3:11).

Those who, like Apollos and the “Ephesus Dozen,” stopped with John’s baptism only had half the story. They needed more than repentance; they needed faith in Christ. The disciples in Ephesus heard about Jesus from Paul the apostle, Jesus’ representative (Acts 9:15). As they received his message, they were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, and they received the Holy Spirit in a way that publicly, unmistakably linked them to the gospel as preached by Paul.

“For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink” (1 Corinthians 12:13).

Acts 19New International Version

Paul in Ephesus

19 While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when[a] you believed?”

They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”

So Paul asked, “Then what baptism did you receive?”

“John’s baptism,” they replied.

Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues[b] and prophesied. There were about twelve men in all.

Paul entered the synagogue and spoke boldly there for three months, arguing persuasively about the kingdom of God. But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way. So Paul left them. He took the disciples with him and had discussions daily in the lecture hall of Tyrannus. 10 This went on for two years, so that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord.

11 God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.

13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” 16 Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.

17 When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor. 18 Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed what they had done. 19 A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas.[c] 20 In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.

21 After all this had happened, Paul decided[d] to go to Jerusalem, passing through Macedonia and Achaia. “After I have been there,” he said, “I must visit Rome also.” 22 He sent two of his helpers, Timothy and Erastus, to Macedonia, while he stayed in the province of Asia a little longer.

The Riot in Ephesus

23 About that time there arose a great disturbance about the Way. 24 A silversmith named Demetrius, who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought in a lot of business for the craftsmen there. 25 He called them together, along with the workers in related trades, and said: “You know, my friends, that we receive a good income from this business. 26 And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that gods made by human hands are no gods at all. 27 There is danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be discredited; and the goddess herself, who is worshiped throughout the province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty.”

28 When they heard this, they were furious and began shouting: “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” 29 Soon the whole city was in an uproar. The people seized Gaius and Aristarchus, Paul’s traveling companions from Macedonia, and all of them rushed into the theater together. 30 Paul wanted to appear before the crowd, but the disciples would not let him. 31 Even some of the officials of the province, friends of Paul, sent him a message begging him not to venture into the theater.

32 The assembly was in confusion: Some were shouting one thing, some another. Most of the people did not even know why they were there. 33 The Jews in the crowd pushed Alexander to the front, and they shouted instructions to him. He motioned for silence in order to make a defense before the people. 34 But when they realized he was a Jew, they all shouted in unison for about two hours: “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!”

35 The city clerk quieted the crowd and said: “Fellow Ephesians, doesn’t all the world know that the city of Ephesus is the guardian of the temple of the great Artemis and of her image, which fell from heaven? 36 Therefore, since these facts are undeniable, you ought to calm down and not do anything rash. 37 You have brought these men here, though they have neither robbed temples nor blasphemed our goddess. 38 If, then, Demetrius and his fellow craftsmen have a grievance against anybody, the courts are open and there are proconsuls. They can press charges. 39 If there is anything further you want to bring up, it must be settled in a legal assembly. 40 As it is, we are in danger of being charged with rioting because of what happened today. In that case we would not be able to account for this commotion, since there is no reason for it.” 41 After he had said this, he dismissed the assembly.

Where Art Thou?

Posted on April 2, 2012 by Royal Rosamond Press

My twenty four year theological search for the Nazarites is titled ‘Where Art Thou?’ This was the first question God asked Adam and Eve in the Garden Kingdom.

My Dutch ancestors may be kin to the Zebulon a Lost Tribe of Israel, who lived in the Alsace before the came to Holland. The Rosamond family lived in the Alsace before they came to Holland. Are they the Zebulon, the Sea Peoples in the Torah, and thus they are the 600 Knights who took the Levite priest, Jonathan, to a city that would be named Dan? They stole the silver head that belonged to Jonathan that I believe is Baphomet. This has much to do with Salome wanting John’s head plated in silver.

The Tribe of Dan was to remain in ships, which suggests they lived on an island. I suspect that island was Malta. The Knights of Saint John on Malta, were rescued from the Saracens by Pope Adrian, perhaps ao the advice of his best friend, Gottschalk Rosemondt, who was the Adrian’s executor of his Will. All Adrian’s Papal papers – vanished! Did they speak of the Lost Kingdom of the Danites? The Phoenicians colonized Malta, that they named Maleth which means ” safe haven”. Perhaps Jonah was cast on to the shore of Malta by a whale, a Phoenician boat that had eyes painted on it?

Adrian was removed from Bosch’s ‘Marriage Feast at Cana’. The cartoon for this masterpiece is in the Louvre, and shows a Pope escorted into the hall of the swan Brethren by a man you I believe is Gottschalk Rosemondt, who was vanished by an artist who painted a dog in the Pope’s place.

Gottschalk was the Master of the Falcon Art College and employed a open rose in applying his name to his book on the confession. The Orange Queen, Beatrix, and her family wear a closed rose pin that the Swan Brethren wore. This suggests Gottschalk was the Grand Master of the Swan Brethren.

The Oera Linda books speak of Rosamond the Earth Goddess Mother and leader of the Frisians who descend from a Lost Tribe. There is a Sea Captain name Jon.

“In Rabbinic traditions, Ezra is metaphorically referred to as the “flowers that appear on the earth” signifying the springtime in the national history of Judaism.”

Judas-Paul of Tarsus invented the crucifix and the sacrificial lamb who died for everyone’s sins, but the Jews and the vanished tribes. God forbid human sacrifice when he held back the hand of Abraham who he instructed to kill Issac. Paul took the bloody lamb idea from Barnabas and ran away with it. Jesus was a Messiah-King of the lineage of David and Micah as I will show in my book. Davide came to won the Ephod and the silver head, through treachery – penned by a redactor – who replaced the Levite priesthood. John and Jesus were making it right.

The Jews did accept Jesus – and John. If John annointed Jesus the Messiah-King, then many Jews would believe in Jesus. The Lord’s Will was being done – until Satan-Saul-Paul came along ‘The Dark Prince’ who falsely claimed Jesus died in order to remove the sins of Pagans – and not Jews! The whole idea of SIN is a Judaic one. Pagans did not own a clue what a sin was. This is why Paul goes to such lengths to create new Gentile sins on Pagan terms – after claiming the Laws of Moses are useless. Consider the Panare Inidans of Columbia being told they killed and crucified Christ to fill them with guilt and sin.

The eucharist was invented by Titus-Timothy in order to keep the Nazarite Church of The Way at bay, they not allowed to get near a dead body, or drink wine. That the Orange Order refused to take the sacrament of the body of Christ, makes them the Chosen People in preparing The Way for a New Reformation amongst the Gentiles, and the Lost Tribes of Europe.

So be it!

Zebulon settled in the Netherlands [Holland], see The Tribes. The expression translated above (from the KJ) as “THE HAVEN OF THE SEA” in Hebrew is “Chof [pronounced as “Hof”] Yamim” meaning at the seashores or at the shore of the seas. I/3 of Holland is below sea-level, another 1/3 is subject to periodic sea-flooding, i.e. 2/3 of the country needs protection (in the form of dykes, dams, etc) from sea-inundation, i.e. they are dwelling on the shores of the sea. This is the only country in the world where this holds true. In Ancient Times a people recorded by Ptolemy called Sabulingoi dwelt in the region of Northern Holland-Frisia.
