Part 1 The Bible and the Desposynic Church of Jerusalem
You might not really understand the bible. How could you in it's present paulist form? You don't know that Paulist theology contradicts the teachings and actions of life of Jesus ( Yeshua)? Maybe before you start this series you might want to take a look at this site...
"All your life you may have believed that you knew the truth, or that your church pastors / friends or family had told you the truth, but what you'll find out is that everything is not as you thought.... http://truthseekers.co.za/"
The works of the man named Paul comprise the majority of the New Testament. He was a self proclaimed Apostle. He was a Roman citizen.
His "teachings" are what comprise much of the prevalent theology in Christian Churches today. Most of what is attributed to Paul is false theology and go quite contrary to the teachings, actions and words of Yeshua (Jesus, to many of you) . Paul had contempt for the Desposyni ( Heirs of the Lord) who were from the family (Mark 3;31-32,Matt 6;3)of Jesus and the rightful authoritative heirs to seat of spiritual power in Jerusalem. James(Yaakov) was the first bishop of Jerusalem. He was the brother of Jesus. He also had other siblings that included Simon, Jose and Jude . Plus some sisters (Matt 6;3).
And don't forget all His cousins, maternal and paternal.
Jesus was not a peasant. He was not illiterate.
It was quite well known that His family was of the royal House of David. That they were of the tribe of Judah.
Even though the Roman installed Herodian's were in power they were not accepted as rightful heirs to the throne. Most everyone knew that they were fraudulent puppets of the Romans and rightfully rejected them. Except those profiting from their position. Including the Religious authorities.
It was well known that the House of David was destined to be enthroned again . It was well known amongst religious, scholars and academics that the Royal family had been disposed, usurped by the Roman Empire and in their place were placed the frauds, the Herodians.
The Jews as well as the Romans were famous for record keeping and documentation. This is the one reason that at the time of Yeshua's birth there was a census that was taken. This was a Roman census by decree of the Caesar.
If Jesus had been illiterate as many "Pastors" promote how is it that he was able to read from the scroll of Isaiah ? Does anyone know how technical a scroll is ?
And another thing, the synagogue and temple authorities did not allow just anyone to approach and read . The reader must be literate and learned in protocol to insure that no defilement is rendered in and of the reading.
Considering that the Jewish people were very proud of their traditions , customs and religion of the One True God ( Ehyeh asher Ehyeh ) they would have been diligent in maintaining records and documentation. They would have definitely had known that the House of David did not just disappear after the installation of the Herodians. They knew who the House of David consisted of and they honored , protected and provided for them accordingly.
We know from scripture that three Magi came from the east to pay homage and honor to the new born KING, Yeshua . Amongst the gifts they brought were frankincense and myrrh. Highly expensive spiritual gifts designated for royalty. One of the other gifts that they presented the child King (Anointed) was gold. It was all tribute for a King.
And it was not insignificant , token amounts. They were not symbolic. They were in significant amounts to insure the honor and welfare and tribute of this Kings establishment. For He was not an ordinary King , he was not installed by men and governments who worshipped false gods.
He was the King , anointed by God Most High, He was the heir of Elohim Adonai. He was Adonai Shalom, Yeshua , Savior God .The One prophesied from the beginning. The One promised . And you really think that these other kings would have troubled themselves with the journey to dishonor God's chosen by leaving a pittance?
They left a significant amount. An amount worthy of the Chosen Heir of God.
And those amongst His own people would also have insured that He was provided for.
Spiritually, Economically, Academically...everything imaginable was afforded to their King. This is why they were at war with Rome and it's Herodian puppets.
Jesus was not a peasant or illiterate.
He was not a Nazarene born or living in Nazareth. He was a priest of the Nazarite order. He was a warrior , prophet , priest and King!
Part 2 Jesus ( Yeshua) was not a peasant or illiterate.
Where do we start to explain how the Desposynic Church (Jerusalem Church) was dis-empowered and how the Roman Empire's Paulist Church was formed and established?
Let start with the Florentine Poet Dante Alighieri's summation in the "The Inferno". Of course later articles will have to backtrack...for it goes far deeper. The issue of Paulist heresy still must be dealt with.
He concentrated the issue in a few short lines about "the first rich father" , Pope Silvester ( first actual "Pope", 314 A.D, Papa [Pater Pateruum, "father of fathers"] , of the Roman Empire) who was installed by mutual agreement with the 31 year old Germanic warrior king, self installed Roman Emperor Constantine , the newly crowned victor of Rome .
Ahi ! Costatin! Di quanto mal fu matre
Non la tua conversion, ma quella dote
Che te presse il primo rico patre!
Alas! Constantine! What evil you bore into the world!
Not by your conversion, but by that dowry
Which the first rich father took from you!
Now what was the meaning of this? It meant that the presbyters, bishops were instructed by Jesus to be only Spiritual brothers and ministers. ( VL: Prester = priest, LL: Presbyter = Elder)( OE : Bisceop, LL: Episcopus = watcher, overseer).
A brother would oversee his Father's children, not rule over them , as a caring sibling. He would not mislead, suffer or murder them
And as Jesus indicated to Pilate, " My kingdom is not of this world."
Though , Jesus' Father's subjects and children were in this world and that is who He came to claim. The lost. The captive. The sick.
But just as Constantine was a warrior king so was Jesus. But much more. He was a warrior, prophet, priest and King of all God the Most High's creation , which is all that seen and unseen.
That's why he received His inheritance as He indicated when he said," All authority on heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."(Matt 28)
The end of the age of Pisces.
One has to realize who Constantine was to put this history in the right context.
He was a Germanic pagan. He didn't actually convert. Well not if you want to take Jesus' command to His disciples at face value when He told them to Baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit. That's where the true conversion begins for the human being. The then receiving of the Holy Spirit, the Lord the giver of Life.
It wasn't until on his death bed , on May 22, 337 A.D., that Constantine asked for and received baptism. During that time before his baptism he was a fraud. Violating commandments of Yeshua. And it's not like he didn't know they existed!
He did not repent for these sins which included the execution of his own Queen Fausta for perjury, the execution of " Christian heretics"- the Donatists , the Arians, the Ebionites. All in the short 23 years that had passed from the time he installed " Pope Silvester" until his time of baptism.
He told those around his deathbed that he had waited too long for the baptism of Jesus.
Imagine if he hadn't had ulterior motives and agendas to meet he might have immediately had asked Bishop Miltiades for baptism in 314 A.D. and he still would have done much more good andNO evil.
But he was a Pagan. He worshipped the Roman and Greek Pantheon. Many of these "deities" required defilement of humanity. This was the beginning of the defilement of the "Way" of Yeshua. Satan had taken possession of the relics,sacraments and congregation of the "Way" through the enticement, bait and entrapment of mammon, temporal power and prestige.
The Empirical Dragon of Rome would now seek out and go to war against the Desposyni , distorting, removing and destroying their history, documentation and memory and then it would go forth to deceive and subjugate the elect of the nations for a prescribed period.
Jerusalem and the Temple had already been destroyed.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.'

Part 3 A Spiritual Church
Lets see what the true Church of Yeshua resembled.
( Parenthesis mine...remember that Martin is writing as a Roman Catholic and is slightly skewered and biased in his promotion and education,hence the reason for my distinctions)
“If you want to know what the church of Jesus was once like----- and could become again----and what once preoccupied all the attention of Peter’s successors, look at a man Pontian( Pontianus , 18th Bishop of Rome 230 - 235 A.D.).
Two hundred years after Jesus announced His church and named Peter as it’s leader ( Peter was Bishop of the Roman Church. James was the leader of the Church which was based in Jerusalem) , the Christians of Rome, as they had been from their beginnings , were hoping and anxiously waiting for Jesus to reappear , triumph over their enemies , and bless them with eternal happiness. They hoped firmly in their triumph and that blessing , which they now felt were long past due.
For Peter had told them ,”The end of the world is at hand…set your hope on the moment when Jesus appears.” They also remembered that, when Peter was about to die, he had appointed a slave, Linus(67- 76 A.D.), as his successor so that , he told the Christians, “ You will be reminded of what I preach.” ( funny he didn’t state “what Yeshua preached“) And when Linus came to die , he appointed a man called Cletus(76- 88) with the consent of the whole group. So it went. There was always one man endowed with Peter’s central job as pope (they were actually “bishops”[overseers] of Rome)---- the word is a translation into English of the Italian “papa”, which is an abbreviation of “ Pater Patruum”, meaning “ father of fathers” or “principal father”.( Must I remind you what Yeshua commanded? “ And call no one on earth father ,for you have but one Father in heaven .” Matt 23;9)
Somewhere between Clement’s successor, Evaristus, and a pope(“bishop“…remember that the 1st actual Pope was installed by Constantine in 314 A.D.) called Hyginus, the eighth successor of Peter , the whole group of Roman Christians did the appointing of their head----probably because the incumbent leader ,or pope ( “bishop”, the Jerusalem Church’s Desposynic bishops were still pretty much the authoritative retainers of the seat of spiritual power), had been taken away to be killed without warning. When that happened, as it often did, the Christians called on their remembrance of what the early followers of Jesus had done when Judas Iscariot left them( notice Martin did not write “die”?):they gathered together, prayed a little , then held a one man-one vote election to replace the suicide( notice “suicide”? that’s because each person knew the cost of discipleship as an overseer was imminent death), accepting the outcome as the decision of Jesus, because He had told them through Peter,” Whatever you allow on earth will be what heaven allows.”( Yeshua actually said, “ Whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” which is preceded by the qualifier “Bound”…it’s not in the context of allowance, for God does not allow sin) So the election process in the “Roman” group was equally simple, and had only two conditions: only Roman Christians--- men and women , by the way---could vote , and only a citizen of Rome could be chosen. ( Now we are starting to see political exclusiveness which got worse) This simple election process was followed in the early centuries whenever a dying pope (bishop)did not nominate his successor… From the start, Pontian had his hands full. Personally , of course, as a Christian ( All “) his outlook was bleak. At any moment of day or night, he could be killed on the spot; Roman law permitted this. Or he could be arrested, imprisoned, then killed in prison or paraded in the Roman stadium to be eaten by animals to the delight of as many as 80,000 screaming fans, or be sent to work and die in Roman mines somewhere in the Mediterranean.” from Malachi Martin’s “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Church” pg 19-20.
This is what Pontian endured and “Christians” looked forward to when they were captured. And Bishop Pontian was captured by the guards of the new Emperor Maximinus who gave an edict ,on September 27 ,235 A.D. , that all “Christian” leaders be arrested . Priests, deacons, scholars, bishops. All of them. Their buildings were to burned, the cemeteries closed and all their personal wealth was to be confiscated.
Pontian was arrested on September 27th ,235 A.D. and was taken to Mamertine Prison.
He was tortured for about ten days in the hope that he would inform on the other leaders . And then he was condemned to the Sardinian lead mines as a felon. For all his natural life. He arrived there about Oct 12th . He would ,as all who were sent there, die there. But he knew that his suffering had just begun. For it was well known amongst “Christians” what type of reception they would receive if they were ever captured and sent to the Sardinian mines. This is what a true follower of Yeshua had in store for them if they professed His name. They were not cowards. Fearful maybe, but definitely not ignorant of their faith or fate. They knew what lie ahead. Suffering and death. And peace and wisdom.
At arrival all “convicts” would be inducted as slave miners, both men and women. Their left eye would be gouged out with a dagger and then the socket cauterized with molten iron. The joints of the left foot were burnt. Then one nerve at the back of the right knee was severed. Then all males under 30 years of age were castrated. Each was branded with a number on the forehead and then manacled in slave miners fashion. Around the ankles were soldered iron rings and then they were linked by a six inch chain. Then a tight chain was placed around the waist , that hung on the hip bones once they lost weight, that was attached to a chain that was linked to the ankle chain that disallowed the slave of ever standing up straight. He had to bend down anyway for the 20 out of the 24 hours he labored. No locks were used as the chains were soldered permanently and besides it was quite impossible to get out of the mines or let alone off the island. As soon as they were chained they strapped to an obelisk and given sixty strokes of the lash. In the 1st night, 1/3 died .
They would never shave, wash or cut their hair or nails again. No more clothes. One meal per day that consisted of coarse bread and water. They worked four five-hour shifts. They slept in their own filth. Some were killed by fellow convicts for various reasons. Some committed suicide by usually stuffing dirt in their nostrils and throats. Some went mad in the darkness and stench of the mines,it was literally Hell underneath the earth. Those who went mad ,were ailing or crippled ,were killed by the Asian guards ( who did not speak their language) without hesitation by either being clubbed to death or by a quick thrust/hack of the sword.
This was hell under earth. A perfect Satanic system of brutality and dehumanization.
For profit and suffering.
That’s what a true “Christian” knew of his impending fate if he professed the name of Yeshua and was caught. How did they endure this? Holy Spirit(Ruach ha Kodesh). Why? Yeshua. His life.
"No greater love…"
The significant issue here is that these “Christians” and bishops were under the authority and leadership of the Desposyni, of the Desposyni Church centered in Jerusalem ,who only qualified as Bishops of Jerusalem due to their true heritage , relatives of Yeshua.
Part 4 Desposyno: Heir of the Lord (Adonai)
A Desposyno was a most hallowed distinct entitlement reserved and bestowed uniquely on the blood relative of Yeshua who only qualified through the bloodline of His mother, Miriam (Mary). This word was known, in use and logged in Imperial records long before the Roman Church ever came into being.
Martin made it very clear when he was relating the history of the Roman church that it’s hierarchy has long maintained privileged position in terms of knowledge acquisition by way of a very sophisticated, well resourced intelligence network. Nothing relevant to the church has ever been a secret to it’s hierarchy, on a need to know basis. The Vatican Archives contain many documents that are otherwise lost to the world. For they were lost, stolen or destroyed by design. Many of it’s secrets have not been broadcast. Unless there was a doctrinal requirement to do so.
After the Romans crushed the 4 year old Israelite uprising and destroyed the temple in Jerusalem and dispersed the Jewish inhabitants in 70 A.D., Emperor Vespasian still had a problem. The actual dynastic House of David. And after the death and resurrection of Yeshua had confirmed that He was the actual Anointed of God, He returned to heaven to prepare us for the Kingdom of God on earth.
The New Jerusalem.
“In my Fathers house there are many dwelling places. If there were not would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you I will “come back again” and take you to myself, so that where I AM you also may be. Where I AM going you know the way.”
They needed to maintain the Herodians. For the agenda had not been met. The New World Order. One world government, one world religion. The Luciferian Kingdom.
King Herod the Great (37-4 B.C.) was an Idumaean Arab who was installed as the Judean King( King of Judaea) by the Roman authorities when they first took control of the region under Julius Caesar (Roman Emperor Julius). He did not have sovereignty.
He allowed, as the puppet ruler, his subjects to be taxed, disenfranchised and disempowered. He allowed the Romans to defile them, their customs, traditions, religion and Temple. Brutality and dehumanization.
The Temple was infected with satanic Priests. It had been slowly eroded and corrupted for centuries. From the time of Moses and beyond. Satan was good at his job of deceiving the nations and defiling humanity through brutality and the enslavement of ignorance and arrogance.
Emperor Vespasian knew that to maintain and promote the Luciferian agenda he had to destroy all credence of the House of David. He once again had to disempower and disenfranchise the rightful heirs to the Kingdom of God. And once they were removed from the annals of History, their gifts could be distorted and used for their own means and ends. They could rewrite, edit and manipulate linguistically and historically what was once known of them. But since so many still knew the truth and history and experienced first hand the power and presence of God through His Holy Spirit this agenda had to be done over the course of years, increment by increment, parcel by parcel, piece by piece.
First thing that had to be done is collect and wipe out all documentation that pertained and related to the Desposyni.
According to the 2ndcentury Palestinian writer Hegesippus, Emperor Vespasian put out an edict commanding that “the family of David be sought, that no one might be left among the Jews who was of the royal stock.”
The House of David was known to be extant, one way or another, at that time in 70 A.D., though the edict does not refer to every living descendant of the House of David, just those that were of royal stock.
Julius Africanus seems to be the first person to definably use the word Desposyni. He made his mark by translating into Latin the works of Abdias, the 1st century Bishop of Babylon who was installed by Yeshua’s brother Jude( Mark 6;3).
The Books of Abdias amounted to a ten volume, first hand apostolic history, entitled Historia Certaminis Apostolici. Though, like so many other firsthand accounts of the era, these books were rejected, in the 4thcentury, for inclusion into Emperor Constantine’s “New” Testament. No real credible sources were allowed.No true authors except some writings attributed to a man named Paul. And not all those were written by him. But they loved to borrow to give these works credence. And then they really loved to distort,manipulate and edit . But no true eyewitness,firsthand accounts.Not from Philip,not from Thomas, not from Mary Magdalen...not, especially, from Abdias and his ten volumes.
Abdias, was really credible , considering that he was one of the seventy -two disciples sent out by Yeshua as referenced in Luke 9;57-10;1 (The Catholic Encyclopedia ,Volume I, Abdias)
Herod Antipas (son of Herod the Great) also ordered the destruction of all aristocratic genealogies, according again to Julius Africanus. Though, Julius states, “A few careful people had private records of their own…and took a pride in preserving the memory of their aristocratic origin. These include the people …known as Desposyni because of their relationship to the Saviour’s family.”
Hegesippus again reported in his Hypomnenata(Memoirs) that Emperor Domitian(81 A.D.) had ordered all the Desposyni inheritors of Yeshua executed, though many were seized they released and “on their release they became leaders of the churches, both because they had borne testimony and because they were of the Lord’s(Adonai) family.”
Part 5: Bloodline Descendancy of Desposyni from Yeshua’s family
There is an authentic line of legitimate blood descendancy from Jesus’ own family.They retain true spiritual authority.
It was recognized but never emphasized by ” Pope” Silvester , nor the 32 bishops before him or those that followed, that there were at least three lines.
The Desposyni, Jewish relatives and followers of Yeshua’s House of David, had been respected by all believers and followers in the 1st century and a half after Yeshua had left his brother James as head of all the church as Bishop in Jerusalem when He went to prepare for us our home that He would bring back with Him on His return.
All the desposyni had carried traditional names from the family of Yeshua; John (Yohanan), James=Jacob (Ya’akov), Joses, Zachary, Joseph, Simeon, Matthias…etc.
Now there were at least three well known and authentic bloodlines from Yeshua’s own family that qualified His relatives as Desposyni. One, from Yeshua’s maternal grandparents, Joachim and Anna.
Another from Yeshua’s cousins, Elizabeth and Zachary, parents of His cousin John the Baptist and 1st cousins to his mother, Mary (Miriam).
The other were also 1st cousins to His mother Mary, Cleophas and his wife.
According to Malachi Martin (pg. 31, The decline and fall of the Roman Church) , Peter and Paul broke with the Desposyni and the Jerusalem Church in 49 AD at the first council over disagreement over gentile convert’s requirements of circumcision , dietary laws, and adhering to Mosaic Law. Consider that Martin was a Paulist priest and that he was taught in a Paulist seminary. He was either blinded by this indoctrination or willingly promoted half truths. Now this is a good thing for we will now be able to look at the source and see that he was in error in different areas. I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt as to his complicity.
Paul of course was admonished by James and the elders, who included the original Apostles who lived with and were taught by Yeshua , when he went to Jerusalem(Acts 21;17-26). They made him participate in a ritual purification. They told him to stop instructing them to turn away from Mosaic Law. “They” were not the gentiles but the “Jews” who lived amongst the gentiles.
Remember that this book of Acts was written by a gentile supposedly named Luke.
He was definitely a gentile but whether it was actually Luke is up in the air.
That is why Acts is directed and written in the context towards Gentiles, using words that James would have not used, primarily the word “Jew”.
Here is where James admonishes Paul for instructing the “Jews” to turn away from the Mosaic Law, circumcision and the traditions and customs. Remember that it was Yeshua that instructed us in His words that the “Law” would not pass away, meaning it was valid forever…
“Brother, you see how many thousands of believers there are from amongst the Jews and they are all zealous observers of the law. And they have been informed that you teach all the Jews living amongst the gentiles to turn away from Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or to observe their customary practices.”
This was not about gentile converts. This was about the Jews living amongst the gentiles. The circumcision wasn’t about adult gentile converts but Jewish children.
This wasn’t about gentiles following the customs of the Jews. It was about Jews living in accordance to their own customs.
So what did James indicate to the gentiles . He indicates that specifically. And it didn’t have anything to do with circumcision or traditions. It was implied that they adhere to Mosaic Law which only included the perfect Ten Commandments. Here is what James said to Paul( not Peter) concerning the gentiles…
“As for the gentiles who have come to believe we have sent them our decision that they should abstain from meat sacrificed to idols, from blood , from the meat of strangled animals and from unlawful marriages,”
Peter was never admonished except by Yeshua. Peter didn’t separate himself from the Desposyni along with Paul. Peter was a Jew. Peter lived with Yeshua. Peter was married. Peter was taught by Yeshua. He adhered to the mosaic Law and to Palestinian Judaic custom. He loved Yeshua and those that Yeshua loved.
Why would Martin make this assertion that Peter and Paul both separated themselves from the Desposynic Jerusalem Church and then left and went to Rome “together”?
Because Paul’s theology would never have took hold without the attachment of Peter’s name .
This is just one of the reasons that the Paulist Roman Church needed to destroy all documentation of the original texts of the Gospels. Why they had to discredit many different true sources by lumping them together with truly heretical sources, theologies and doctrines. Why they, early on , destroyed the genealogical records of the Desposyni.
For the Church was hijacked by Satanists. And their father.
As Yeshua had boldly told them, “ You do the works of your father.” So they said to Him, “We are not illegitimate! We have one father, even God!”
Yeshua said to them, “If God were your Father you would love me, for I came forth and am from God; for neither have I come on my own, He sent me. Why can you not understand what I say? For you cannot bear to hear my word. You belong to your father the devil and you willingly carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and held no truth for there is no truth in him. When he lies he speaks in nature for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8;41-44
Satan had promised that he would come when Yeshua least expected and at the most opportune time. But he was a coward also. So he waited for the Master to leave to assault His children and lead them astray again through manipulation and ignorance. Enticing them, through their arrogant ego, with mammon, undue power and prestige.
The Dragon could not mislead the Desposyni. They would not compromise and worship it, so it went to war against them.
“When the Dragon saw that it had been thrown down to earth, it pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.
But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly to her place in the desert, where, far from the serpent, she was taken care of for a year, two years, and a half-year.
The serpent, however, spewed a torrent of water out of his mouth after the woman to sweep her away with the current.
But the earth helped the woman and opened its mouth and swallowed the flood that the dragon spewed out of its mouth.
Then the Dragon became angry with the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God’s commandments and bear witness to Yeshua (Savior God). It took its position on the sand of the sea.” Rev 12;13-18
Part 6 The disenfranchisement and disempowerment of the Desposyni
The Desposyni had composed and led the only church in Jerusalem until the year135 A.D.
These are now known as Judeo Christians. Bishop (Pope) Sylvester knew their history well. Many knew of them and their history , considering that the greatest world events had occurred not hidden under a bed but under ,literally, earth shaking ,sky darkening, fear provoking, grave opening and dead arising miracles.
They beat their breasts and wailed when they saw the darkness overcome the whole land and the curtain of the temple torn in two. What was the significance of the curtain being torn in two?
One has to understand that sin separated man from the presence of God.
In the temple the veil/curtain separated the priests from the Holy of Holies.
Only once a year could one priest enter to give atonement for all the people.
Some would say ,” A curtain tearing in two, big deal!”
It was a big deal. The curtain was four inches thick!
And the historian Josephus indicates that not even two horses could tear it apart.
The veil represented the sin that separated us all from God.
It tearing, right down the middle, was a feat that could only be brought on by supra-natural phenomenon .
At the moment of Yeshua’s death.
It indicated that His death had released His Holy Spirit for the redemption of all mankind.
Sin could no longer separate man from the presence of God.
“Surely this man was the Son of God.”
The Desposyni had left Jerusalem only once in the 102 years following Yeshua’s death.
This was right before Emperor Titus captured the city. The Jewish Christians were led by Bishop Simeon, son of Cleophas who was Yeshua’s uncle by marriage to His mother’s cousin. They fled into Perea which is in modern Jordan.
They returned to Jerusalem by 72 A.D. and remained there until the ban instituted by Emperor Hadrian (117-138).
The Judeo Christian churches were set up after all over Palestine ,Mesopotamia and Syria after they left Jerusalem. Though they met much resistant and hostility by the officials of the local synagogues who considered them apostates of Judaism for their belief in the Anointed of God. In their testimony of truth of the one God ,Yeshua, Elohim Adonai they were met with and imposed contempt. And they were also despised by the Greeks who were taught a different, false Yeshua and doctrine by true apostates, by heretics, by blasphemers of the Holy Spirit who were led by the likes of Paul. The Roman self claimed Pharisee, self declared and promoted “Apostle” to the gentiles. Now this theology and politics had not taken hold of the Roman Church until Constantine and his puppet Bishop (Pope) came to joint power.The teaching had not been formulated, collated and compiled, as of yet. But as was pointed out earlier above, Sylvester knew well of the Desposyni. He knew of the threat they posed to his new found kingdom and wealth. A plan was in the works. First thing to do was sever them from solvency.
The whole nature of the church was dependent on this issue that arose between the Desposyni and the newly created authority of Rome, “Pope” Sylvester.
A meeting was held in Rome in 318 A.D. between the Desposyni and the elders of the Jerusalem church and “Pope” Sylvester. He had provided for their voyage to the port of Rome , Ostia. Eight men came riding on donkeys into Rome and up to the Lateran Palace were Sylvester resided in over luxuriant splendor. The Pope now was attired in finery and bejeweled, surrounded by pomaded bishops and officials. What insolence and indignance did the Desposyni observe in these puffed up arrogant men. What evil. They knew the infection had entered , the infection of the evil of Satan.
The Desposyni spoke a sacred dialect of Hebrew, what Yeshua spoke, Aramaic, which Sylvester did not understand. So they communicated in Greek amongst themselves.
The issues are well known. And as was demonstrated above, it had nothing to do with Greek adults getting circumcised. It had to do with Desposynic Sovereignty. It had to do with the true seat of power. It had to do with spiritual power and authority and the truth.
And the Greeks refused to adhere to true gospel. The gentiles wanted to make a hybrid religion that was palatable, that would be easily acceptable to the pagan’s polytheistic pantheism, the worship of the Greek, Egyptian and Roman pantheon. The old Babylonian,Caananite and Mesopotamian demons. The convergence of Mithra, Isis, Amen, Thor, Saturn, Odin and Sun worship, Sol Invictus. The worship of demons. The worship of Artemis. The morphing of Yeshua into Iesous, the pagan god of healing, who was not Yeshua!
Sylvester, empowered and emboldened by the new might of the new world order of the reemerging Imperial Roman government and his protection and new found wealth from it had the audacity to “appoint” Greek Bishops in Jerusalem, Antioch, Alexandria and Ephesus.
Joses was the leader and the Bishop.They came to demand that he remove these usurpers. They came to demand that the cash contributions to the Jerusalem Church stop being diverted to Rome (It is still done to this day).
From Malachi Martin’s “ The decline and fall of the Roman Church”….
“Sylvester curtly and decisively dismissed the claims of the Jewish Christians(Desposyni). He told them that the mother church was now in Rome, with the bones of the Apostle Peter, and he insisted that they accept Greek bishops to lead them.
It was the last known discussion between the Jewish Christians of the old mother church and the non jewish Christians of the new mother church. By his adaption, Sylvester, backed by Constantine, had decided that the message of Jesus was to be couched in western terms by western minds on an imperial model.
The Jewish Christians had no place in such a church structure. They managed to survive until the first decades of the fifth century. Then , one by one, they disappear…But most of them die- by the sword ( Roman garrisons hunted them as outlaws)…”
Yes, the Dragon went to war against the Desposyni. Though ,not all were murdered.
Many of us cannot be killed. Our blood spilled and suffered, but not killed. For we are servants and sons of the God Most High, the God of the Living.
Then the Dragon became angry with the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God’s commandments and bear witness to Yeshua (Savior God). It took its position on the sand of the sea.” Rev 12;13-18
