Was Jesus nailed to the cross by the hands or by the wrists?

All my life I have seen and read that Jesus was affixed to the cross by piercing his hands with nails.  Nevertheless, in this later decade I have seen many pictures in which Jesus is depicted as being nailed to the cross through his wrists.  I have heard also some weird scholars backing this nonsense.  I am going to demonstrate this false with three different arguments:  a) anatomically, showing that the hand certainly can hold the weight of a person; b) anatomically and biblically, showing that they could not pierce Jesus’ wrists, because it would break one or more of his bones, and  c) biblically only, showing that the Bible says that it was Jesus’ hands that were pierced.
First argument. Those who say that Jesus was nailed through the wrists allege that a human body cannot be held to a cross by nailing its hands to it, because the flesh would give way, the hand would rip, and the person would fall.  This is a lie.
Those who say such a thing never have seen the dissection of a human body.  I have seen many times the hand being studied in cadavers, by  medical students.  During their first year they have to study anatomy.  At that time they have to dissect not only the hand but also the whole body.
The conjunctive tissue of the body of humans and animals is stronger than a rope. Tendons, transverse ligaments and aponeurosises are conjunctive tissues.  The hand is full of them, as you can see in pictures # 1 and # 2.
All these pictures are taken from the book  “An Atlas of Anatomy”,  by  J. C.  Boileau Grant,  M.C.; M.B.;  Ch. B.; F.R.C.S. Edin,  Professor Emeritus of Anatomy in the University of Toronto, Fourth Edition.  Pictures numbers 57, 84, 92 and 98.

Picture # 1  The Palm

Picture # 2  Dorsum of the hand

It is not possible that tendons of a person’s hands, transverse ligaments and aponeurosises, pierced by a nail, give way to let the weight of the body rip the hand, because conjunctive tissue is very strong.  This would only happen in a rotten body, not in a living man.  This wouldn’t happen even if the body of Christ was hung from only one hand, much less from both.  It is not true that Christ was pierced from the wrists.  This lie was introduced into Christianity by its enemies, especially by the Russellites.
You may think that your delicate hands would be ripped apart if they were hung.  What you need to remember is that Christ’s hands were carpenter hands.  Today, you can get an idea about how strong Christ hands were by looking at the hands of any 33 year old carpenter who has been in building houses since he was a teenager.
Second argument.  According to the Scripture, Jesus Christ is our Passover Lamb, who was going to be sacrificed.  That is why he was killed the very same day that the Passover lamb was to be killed.  Paul says so in I Co 5: 7.

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are
        unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us
( I Co 5: 7 )

In the ordinances of the Passover it is established that no bone must be broken in the lamb. It was a shadow of what was going to happen later with Jesus, to whom no bone was broken.  The Passover ordinances say as follows:

In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh
        abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.”
( Ex 12: 46 )

They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it:
        according to all the ordinances of the Passover they shall keep it.”
( Nm 9: 12 )

As we can see, the rite of the Passover forbade breaking any bone of the lamb. That is why the Roman soldiers did not break Jesus’ legs when they brought him down from the cross.  God would not let them do so.

Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other
        which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that
        he was dead already, they broke not his legs; but one of the soldiers with a
        spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And
        he that saw it bare record, and his record is true; and he knoweth that he saith
        true, that ye might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture
        should be fulfilled: A bone of him shall not be broken.”
( John 19: 32 – 36 )

If any bone of Jesus Christ could not be broken, then a nail could not have been driven through his wrists, because then for sure his wrist bones would be broken.  The wrist has eight bones: scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate. These bones are kept tightly together by ligaments, in such a way, that if you drive a nail through the wrist you have to pierce and break some of them.  Therefore, Jesus could not be nailed by the wrists, but by the palm of the hand.  The five metacarpal bones which constiture the palm of the hand, are separate from each other, and thus a nail can be driven between two of them without breaking any.  See picture # 3.  This means that the hand can be pierced by a nail without breaking a bone, but if the wrist is pierced by a nail, it necessarily will break one or more bones.  See picture # 4.
Picture # 3  Bones of wrist, palm and fingers

The section of the wrist of the former picture, is enlarged in the next picture so that you can see that it is impossible to drive a nail through the wrist without breaking a bone.
Picture # 4  Bones of the wrist

Third argument.  Above and beyond all these “anatomical” arguments are the biblical arguments.  In the Bible it says several times that Jesus was pierced at his hands and his feet.  It never ever mentions the wrists.  Why then are people trying to instill in us, by means of pictures and conferences, that Jesus was nailed at his wrists?  What are they up to?
Let us see what Jesus said when he showed himself to apostles.

The other disciples therefore said unto him: We have seen the Lord. But
        he said unto them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put
        my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not
        believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas
        with them; then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and
        said: Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas: Reach hither thy finger,
        and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and
        be not faithless, but believing.”                                           ( John 20: 25-27 )

As we can see in this passage, Thomas knew that Jesus’ hands were pierced, not his wrists. He expected  a hole in his hands, not in his wrists. When Jesus came to them a second time, he showed Thomas his hands, not his wrists. It is evident that it was his hands that were pierced by the nails, not his wrists.  This same thing  can be noticed in other passages.  Let us see them.

And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then
        were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.”
( John 20: 20 )

And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled?; and why do thoughts arise
        in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me,
        and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when
        he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.”
( Luke 24: 38- 40 )

In these two passages we see that for the purpose of identifying himself Jesus showed them his hands and his feet, not his wrists and his feet.
If we go to the prophecies of the Old Testament we will also see that when foretelling what Jesus was going to go through, they talked about his hands, not about his wrists.

For dogs have compassed me; the assembly of the wicked have inclosed
        me: they pierced my hands and my feet.”                             ( Psalms 22: 16 )

And one shall say unto him: What are these wounds in thine hands? Then
        he shall answer:  Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.”
( Zech 13: 6 )

There is not the slightest doubt that Jesus was pierced through his hands and not through his wrists, like some weird scholars now want us to believe.
Nevertheless, I will not be surprised if one of these days some weird scholar declares that Jesus was nailed to the cross by his ankles, not by his feet.

There are now some questionable “scholars” that are trying to convince Christians that in ancient times, people never did make a difference between “hand” and “wrist”, in order to justify that Jesus was nailed by the wrist. This is false. In ancient times they made a difference between hand and wrist. Both, Latin and Greek have a word for wrist: in Latin, it was, “carpus”, and in Greek it was pronounced very similar but written ,“carpoz”. What these dubious scholars say is not true.

From STEVE QUAYLE’S website:

The Lord gave me a picture of the ‘Super Bowl’ event and what may come to pass. I really wasn’t sure what to make of it honestly, but so much of what is written in that letter resembles what I saw.

Hi Steve,
My wife and I were just reading with much curiosity your post about the Super Bowl 2014 false flag event letter that was sent to Before It’s News and other news site. The Super Bowl has been quite a topic of conversation for us in the last couple of weeks because on January 7 the Lord gave me a picture of the event and what may come to pass. I really wasn’t sure what to make of it honestly, but so much of what is written in that letter resembles what I saw.

Here is a transcript of what I wrote on January 7 in my journal. I also scanned the page and attached it to the email so you can see that I really did receive a picture on that day.

Superbowl 2014
As in all Super Bowls, there are interesting accidents and disclosures.
Janet Jackson. Beyoncé.
But be careful about calling everything a conspiracy, what is only smoke and mirrors.
However, this Super Bowl will be different.
Do you see the picture I am giving you?
Helicopters flying overhead.
Panic in the bleachers.
A mysterious fog released into the air.
On such a cold night!
Now do you see the explosions?
Look at the date of the game: 2/2/14.
The vans parked outside.
Mass hysteria.
Men in backpacks, as in the Boston bombings.
The same players.
The Dark Knight.
The explosion of something–a missile?–entering the stadium from above, through the dome.
Many will die.
For a time the location of the president will be unknown.
These things I have shown you so that you might know that the time is getting short.
The day of the LORD is at hand.
Destruction and chaos resound.
There is mayhem in the marketplace.
But always remember that those who call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved.

{End of vision}

I emailed Dave Hodges and Nathan Leal about the Super Bowl a couple of weeks ago. Dave Hodges reminded me that there is a movie called Black Sunday about a terrorist attack that takes place during a Super Bowl. I am sure there is other Illuminist symbolism here for the trained eye. I would love to know if the LORD has given any prophetic words/visions to anyone else, or if anyone has any more insight/intel as to what might be going on. I guess we will know soon enough on February 2. In the meantime I suggest we all be praying fervently that any plans in the making would be thwarted by the King of Kings and His body of prayer warriors and soldiers who are willing to stand with Him in this late hour.

Thanks Steve. I appreciate you and love hearing your radio messages, particularly the recent ones you have been doing with Pastor Langford on the Hagmann report.

From BEFORE IT’S NEWS:

SuperBowl False Flag “TreasonBowl” Letter Sent to Before It’s News

We received this letter yesterday from an anonymous source via US mail.  Before It’s News is just a conduit for your news and we thought this information might be of value to our readers.  Here is the fulltext of this letter, from people who claim to have worked on the design and contruction of the new MetLife Stadium (original jpeg scans of the letter are below the text).  The upside down American flag stamp on the outside of the envelope is an interesting touch. Video report also below.

The Treason Bowl February 2, 2014 at the Meadowlands Sports Complex

Hello,

For reasons soon to be obvious to you, I will not introduce myself, nor any of the others who have contributed to this notification. We have been involved with the construction and operation of the new MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex. Some of our involvement precedes the groundbreaking, and some of our involvement is current.

From here on, I will refer to the upcoming Super Bowl as the “Treason Bowl”.

From the start, from design stages, plans have been made for the stadium, and the American Dream Meadowlands complex, to host a well-planned false flag event, so grand that one would think it was planned in the offices of Josef Goebbles himself. This has been in the works for at least six years.

The highlight of this treason will be the world-wide live television coverage of this abomination of civilization. This promotion of fear and horror is hoped to inspire the masses of the world to willfully submit to the eradication of rights given to us by God.

In the very design of the stadium, spots were planned for the placement of bombs, not to immediately kill the stadium guests, but to entrap the guests. The bomb placements are for the creation of choke points to control the movement of the guests.

Remember, the highlight is the international live broadcast of desperate human suffering. It will first be answered by military-ized police and thug-like New Jersey state police, but to ONLY be resolved by US Army troops from Ft. Dix.

The fix is in; racketeering at its finest hour.

You may notice that the New Jersey State Police Sports Complex Unit has a noticeable high percentage of troopers that are very big, look like thugs, and we assure you – act like thugs. Seven of us have witnessed experiences with them, with varying degrees of rudeness, misery and disgust. There are traitors within this local state police force who will be enabling the apparent foreigners, in the stadium and in the whole complex. It has been harder for us to be exact with numbers of US federal agents in on the false flag fix, but we have confirmed they to be from DHS, NSA, FBI and Blackwater.

For the Treason Bowl, there may be as many as 11 armed “foreign terrorists” in the stadium itself, being another 8 of them in the rest of the complex, including Meadowlands Station.

A heavier-than-air poison gas will be brought in with the C02 canisters that are used by soft drink vendors. It will not be a quick killer as chlorine gas, but rather a gas that causes more physical contortions and suffering, for high-impact live video. This heavier-than-air poison will first target the field level, most notably the athletes on the field. Specific placement of bombs will insure that no one leaves the field level, ala the closed choke points.

False flag Islamic demands will be posted for the release of “freedom fighters” in Guantanamo, but primarily for the exit of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

For those of you who haven’t figured it out yet, about the extensively drawn out Afghan occupation by a supposedly mighty military (with untold hundreds of billions of dollars worth of military resources AND high-tech intelligence resources), against an out- manned (and out-gunned) rebel alliance with a mysterious decade-plus bottomless supply of resources -> it’s all about the three pipelines – the now-complete Caspian Sea oil and natural gas pipelines to China and points in between, and the heroin pipeline to developed countries in the west, especially our country. The continuing vagueness of the Afghan occupation should be as obvious as the nose on your face, and should consume your curiosity. The lot of us here are amazed how this realization escapes the most of you. Of course our senses are heightened on this matter, having learned for the past 6 years of the pending evil and doom of the 2014 Treason Bowl.

There were scattered warnings before the successful treasonous coup de tat of Sept 11. The warnings were not heeded, mostly because such a display of treason wasn’t so believable at the time, as much as it is believable now. After that event, those previous warnings were given the status as if they came from the Bellevue nut ward, even though the event itself showed the warnings to be very accurate.

An aside here: one of us has a relative who was one of the many NYFD officers who heard the meticulous floor-by-floor demolition explosives in the World Trade Towers.

The obvious, but never to be explained, breakdown of the tax-payer-financed multi- hundred-billion-dollar-a-year U.S intelligence community is well underway, again.

You must recognize that treasonous orchestrations of such grand scale can only be accomplished with the bottomless pockets of intel agencies, with secrecy as their ally.

Rest assured that “treason” is the correct word for the event. The former military explosives experts of contractor Blackwater will be placing the bombs.

We’re told that the FBI is complete with the fabrication of evidence.

(This reminds me of the NY State Trooper C evidence-fabricating scandal. This time it’s federal, with NJ state police help, and much bigger targets.)

DHS gumshoes have covertly infested the operations of the whole complex, supplying reports as to the progress of the logistics of this fabulous false flag murder fest, and hoping to identify any Meadowlands Complex workers who may be getting savvy to the treasonous ploy of federal agencies, and subversive NJ state police.

The daily security of Met Life Stadium currently is anal retentive and far beyond what our contemporaries at other sports arenas have reported in their facilities.

Specific state police officers are tasked to enable the alleged “terrorists” to their assigned placement for the horrendous and sinister festivities in the first half of the third quarter, when this conspiracy theory will no longer be a theory.

DHS appears to be the overall planners and coordinators, while drawing upon the resources of other federal groups, especially the NSA. The NSA seems to have the planned psychological blueprint for the multiple-day death, horror and hostage event. Psychological operations have been part of their original mission since 1952, to counter the brainwashing of Korean War captives. NSA has always done psycho activities, and blamed the CIA for most of it.

Our hope here is that the Treason Bowl could be abated per this warning. Much depends on high-visibility circulation of this warning. Just the same, you may want to cheer for your favorite team to lose in the conference finals, in triple overtime of course.

Good Night, and Good Luck.

THE LORD SHALL NOT BE MOCKED! THIS IS A FINAL WARNING…PLEASE TAKE HEED NOW.

Events Will Come Rapidly Now

Jesus Second Coming3

Bon’s Blog – Hearing from God

“Events will come rapidly now, My daughter.  They will come in quick succession.  There will hardly be any time between one event and the next and you will not be able to catch your breath in between what is coming and the next event on the horizon.
 
Seek Me now at all times – stay close to Me and focus on My love for you, My children.  Remember that I have you all in the palm of My hand and I will not allow the enemy to touch a hair on your heads.
 
I have told you, My daughter, that My 3-day warning will soon be heard, seen and felt by all mankind.  The earth will tremble and shake and darkness will descend.
 
First you will see the cosmic event that I have forewarned you of, then the three days of darkness will descend.  Stay in your homes, My children, as I have told you and I will come to you – each one of you – and reveal Myself to you.  My angels will protect you and your families and homes during this time.  You will have light in  your dwellings, while there is darkness outside and many strange things happen upon the earth.  You will be totally protected by My myriad of angels, so fear not, My children, for I am coming for you and will not delay!
 
This is all for now, My daughter.
 
Your Jesus”
Joel 2:28-32 (NKJV)
28 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
32 And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.
For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance,
As the Lord has said,
Among the remnant whom the Lord calls.
Matthew 10:29-31 (NKJV)

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

More messages from our Beloved!

Below I have posted some amazing messages from three separate ladies who I don’t believe know each other yet they speak what the Holy Spirit is telling them to say! Listen up folks…time is VERY short and we have to be well rooted in HIM to survive what is coming because for a short time we will be tempted to THINK He has forsaken us and He is clearly telling us that will NEVER happen!

We have to have our armor on, we have to know WE have HIS authority, we have to have the faith of Yahushua/Jesus and TOTAL and complete faith in Him as well.

 

 

 

Bon’s Blog – Hearing from God

And Then I Come for You!

“Daughter, take heart, for I know you are concerned about what is coming.  This event of which I have spoken is a cataclysmic event that will affect all of mankind.  You, My Bride, will be protected but you will see many things you would rather not.  This is why I keep telling you to keep your focus on Me, your Lord and Saviour.  My Bride will be used in a mighty way to bring in the Last Harvest before I bring you all home to Me.  So many of you are anxious and concerned and want to know when … when … when … this event will come!  But, My children, you have taken your eyes off Me, your Lord and Saviour and your Provider!  I am to be your First Love and your trust must be entirely in Me to provide for you and to protect you, no matter what happens.  Yes, I have said, I will give you warning – so fear not.  This event has been planned since the creation of time.  Nothing will prevent My will being done on Earth as it is in Heaven. 
Remember that I told you there will be a short span of darkness you will need to walk through before I come for My Bride, and there will be a time when it may appear that I have forsaken you ~ but nothing could be further from the truth!  No matter what happens and no matter how you feel, I have not forsaken you and never will forsake you!  It will be at this time that you must strengthen your faith in My Word, the Bible, and in My personal words spoken to you.  Just because you may not be able to feel Me for a short span, know that I am with you, regardless of your feelings, and I will bring you through.
There is so much coming, My daughter, as I have told you.  Know that when things begin to happen, they will come in quick succession and there will hardly be time to catch your breath in between these events.  Know that My time has come for My wrath to be poured out on the Earth because of the vileness of her sins.  But you, My precious Bride, will be protected.
Remember too, I have told you, I have work for you to do.  My Holy Spirit will infuse you and you will go out and bring in the Great Last Harvest and then I come for you, My precious children, My beautiful Bride ~ and then I come for you!”
Luke 21:28 (NKJV)
Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.
Hebrews 13:5b (NJKV)
For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you”.

Behold I come

I WILL ROAR

My wrath will not be held back any longer, for the enormity of this worlds sin is great. My arm of protection is no longer upon you, as you have chosen death over life. I am about to act mightily and in great power across this earth. You will know that your great disobedience brings this upon you. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth as I sweep across your nations. Woe to those who have repeatedly ignored My pleas and the pleas of My Son for repentance. You will all be brought to your knees. You have no idea the force in which I will strike, for I will not be mocked. Prepare for you will reap that which you have sown. None of you has ever experienced this intense darkness that I will send as My final Warning. To the disobedient ones, it will bring immense terror and chaos.

Now to My Bride, you will experience this as My greatest act of mercy and I assure you again and again, you have nothing to fear. My judgements are not for you although you must endure for a moment in order that you be My light after these things occur.  It is always darkest before the morning. I will NEVER forsake you for this is My promise. Pay close attention dear ones to My Holy Spirit which resides in you. Listen for instructions. Be ever so vigilant and alert at all times so you will not be caught unaware. Never cease praying. Anchor in Me, your Source and I will comfort you through this dark time and provide you with a peace that I alone can provide. This will commence suddenly to those not walking as One with Me, but I always let My own know what I am about to do. Do not let your guards down. There must not be any openings in your armor in which the enemy can penetrate. It is imperative that you heed these warnings now so desperation and fear do not overtake you. You must not underestimate the enemy, however remember that greater is He in you than he that rules this world. I give you My kiss of peace. You will be triumphant My Bride. I would not have My Bride to suffer long, as My love for her is beyond measure. Although you will see death and very sorrowful situations, it is of the utmost importance that you remember during these times, who you are to Me. You are My chosen, precious jewels in the Kingdom. Stay close to Me now more than ever children, drawing your strength from Me your Heavenly Father, for I will roar from the Heaven’s and everything that can be shaken will be shaken. 

Your Eternal Father

As the Lord relayed this message to me, He again showed me the vision spoken of with the train of judgements. Please see the post: ANOTHER SERIOUS WARNING FOR AMERICA written 06/18/12.

Galatians 6:7-8

King James Version (KJV)
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

1 Thessalonians 5:17

17 Pray without ceasing.

Hebrews 12:26-29

26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Now in light of these and past messages and my research and studies over the years and the leading of the Holy Spirit… I am feeling this is very much related to or I should say, will possibly begin with the comet Ison’s approach in November. After seeing the video I have posted below I am wondering if this is when Satan gets booted out of heaven and Jesus/Yahushua see’s him fall like lightening from the sky and the dragon’s tails whips a bunch of stars (fallen angels) out of the sky with him to Earth. Then we are told he, (Satan), is full of wrath for his time is short.

The Two Witnesses REVEALED!

tumblr_mhed8wnbLq1ra39l0o1_r1_500

Have you been noticing that there are more and more people on YouTube coming out and saying they are one of the two witnesses? I am not talking about kooks either. No. They are Holy Spirit filled people who put out amazing video’s with DEEP thoughts about Yah and what is coming. They are Bible believing, Spirit filled, sound doctrine loving, God fearing men and women. At first I must say when I heard it the first time I was like…eh…not so sure about that. BUT, I have learned NOT to judge, especially HIS people, because He will make you eat crow for sure! And then you will have some MAJOR repentance to do. So I have just been watching, wondering, asking… what it all means? Guess what? Got my answer!

Did you ever have one of those AHA! moments immediately followed by…HOW DID I MISS THAT? Well, this was one of many for me…lol! I came across this listening to a great show on BlogTalk Radio called Tribulation-Now, (I urge you to listen to the show I have linked to, its long but well worth the time.) hosted by John Baptist (screen name folks…lol). PLEASE take the time to watch this video as it is such an amazing and simple truth….a hand to forehead moment!

The Name of The Messiah? By: Elderchild

A SIMPLE AND SPIRITUAL LIFE

Psalms98-6

 What is the name of The Messiah?
Is it a Greek or a Jewish name? Should not a disciple of The Messiah know The Messiah’s GOD given birth Name, and it’s pronunciation, as given by the angel Gabriel when he prophesied to Miriam (Mary)? (Luke 1:31)
When The Messiah spoke His Name from heaven to Paul on the road to Damascus, what Name did The Messiah speak? Paul testified that he heard an utterance from The Messiah’s mouth. “And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice SAYING to me in the HEBREW dialect, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ And I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am ??????? Whom you are persecuting’” (Acts 22:14; 26:14-15). Surely the apostle Paul was not puzzled over the language when he was told “Arise, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His Name” (Acts 22:16). What Name did the apostle Paul “call on”?
What then was the utterance from the mouth of The Messiah that proclaimed His Name, since IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THE MESSIAH SPOKE IN HEBREW? Many names are promoted these days besides the “catholic/christian” name of “jesus”: Y’Shua, Yeshua, Yahshua, Joshua, Yehoshua. Shouldn’t we be able to know the Name of The Messiah? “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other Name under Heaven given among men, by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Should not a man, especially The Son of GOD and Son of man, be called by the same Name, His GOD given birth Name, all over the world?
Who and what is “Iesous”?
Hundreds of times in the New Testament the Greek name Iesous is translated as ‘Jesus’. But if you have ever read an older King James Bible you might have noticed something odd in Acts 7:45. In his speech to the Jewish council, Stephen refers to the man who led Israel into the earthly Promised Land as “Jesus”, not Joshua!  Why?  Is this an error?
Well, yes and no, since the Greek name in verse 45 is Iesous, the same word translated as jesus everywhere else. Stephen could not possibly have been referring to anyone else but the leader Joshua who took over after Moses and led the israelites into the earthly Promised Land. And immediately afterwards, in verse 59, Stephen cried out when being stoned, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” Again the name is Iesous in the Greek. Was Stephen crying out to the historical figure Joshua, long dead, to save him, or was he calling upon the Son of GOD, since both names in the Greek are Iesous? So what does Iesous mean, Jesus or Joshua? Was Stephen, a man so righteous that heaven opened up at his martyrdom, was Stephen so overcome by the stress of the moment that he couldn’t tell a long dead forefather from The Messiah, Whom he saw standing at the right hand of GOD?

Jesus or Joshua?

Modern translations of the Scriptures, and even recent revisions of the King James version, have noticed this contradiction and changed the name in Acts 7:45 to Joshua so that it makes sense. (The same problem is found in Hebrews 4:8 also.) But where did these translators get their authority to change the Scriptures? Is it through integrity and honesty that Iesous is translated “Jesus”, except when it obviously has to mean Joshua? Or are the traditions of men so strong that translators can take liberties with the Word of GOD? At least the translators of the original King James Version were consistent enough to translate Iesous as Jesus in Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8 even when it made no sense.
So if the new translations change Jesus to Joshua in Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8, why didn’t they also change Jesus to Joshua in all the other Scriptures where they found the name Iesous? In Acts 7:45 the name Iesous is obviously Joshua, and could not possibly refer to anyone else. Isn’t the name Iesous really Joshua everywhere it is found? Isn’t The Name of The Messiah, in modern English, really Joshua instead of Jesus? If it would be tampering with the Scriptures to change the translated savior’s name of jesus back to Joshua, would it not also be tampering with the Scriptures to change Jesus back to Joshua in Acts 7 and Hebrews 4? It’s all the same word – Iesous! We want to know GOD’s Will about these things, because it doesn’t make sense that the translators would change the Holy Scriptures in one place and not the other. Not wishing to disturb tradition, do they hang on to the name of jesus for the sake of selling bibles?
For certain, one thing is true. Miriam and Yoseph (Mary and Joseph in English) named the child just as the angel commanded them. Did the angel speak to them in Hebrew or did he speak Greek? Everything would be more understandable if he had spoken Greek to them. Then Jesus could have been exactly what came out of the angel’s mouth and the multitudes today pronounce The Messiah’s GOD given Name exactly as the angel did. Except that there never was a “J” sound in Greek .. or Hebrew .. or even English .. until the 1500’s.
So what is the answer? Why should there be confusion concerning the Name by which all men must be saved? Did not GOD reveal to HIS followers the name HE gave to The Messiah, “the given Name above all given Names to Whom every knee shall bow and every tongue confess”? Will all HIS people gather around HIS throne someday and mumble but distorted sounds as if we were gathered around the tower of Babel? Are we not speaking of the GOD who longs to speak to the human heart, to save all men who call upon the Name of The Messiah!

What The Messiah’s Name Means
Does the name of The Son of GOD have any meaning other than as a label? It certainly did to Yoseph! “And you will name Him ???????, because He will save His prople from their sins”. (Matthew 1:21) Now if The Messiah’s name is Jesus, this scripture makes no sense, since obviously the Name of The Messiah means that “He will save His people from their sins”.
But do you know what the name Jesus literally means?
No, you don’t, and neither does anyone else, because it has no meaning as a word in any language. It is, at best, a mere tag. Now today we might take a mere tag somewhat lightly, but not the Jews. When Yoseph and Miriam brought the child to the Temple in Jerusalem to dedicate Him, they dared not even utter such a name as Iesous(Joshua in english). The Jewish priests jealously guarded the holiness of the Temple, and considered Greek to be a loathsome language.
If Yoseph and Miriam had dedicated their child in a Greek name it would have been viewed as an abomination, and they would have been roughly ejected from the Temple! Obviously, this did not happen, and they performed everything according to the Law (Luke 2:21-39).
But if the Greek Iesous really translates as Joshua in Hebrew, the language that Yoseph, Miriam, and every other Jew spoke, including the Savior Himself, then the angel’s proclamation makes total sense. Hebrew names in the Bible are always meaningful, as were all names until recent times, and the name Joshua is even more than that for the name Joshua is prophetic.
In John 17:11 our Master prayed, “Holy Father, keep them in Your Name, the Name which You have given Me, that they may be one, even as we are.” Since according to the words of the Savior, the Father’s Name is in His Name, it will help to know the Father’s Name.
Fortunately this is pretty easy, because the Old Testament was only written in Hebrew and a number of verses are very clear in proclaiming the Father’s name, such as, “Sing to GOD … whose name is YAH” (Psalm 68:4).
Also the Scriptures are full of the expression Hallelujah, a phrase very familiar to Christians, but do you know what it means in Hebrew? It is actually HalleluYAH, a command meaning, “Give praise to YAH.” None of this is secret stuff, for it is found in the marginal readings of many bibles today; for example, look at Psalms 116:19 in the new american standard bible.
So how do you say the Savior’s name in His language? Well, it would be Joshua, except that the letter “J” in English was originally a “Y” sound. So His name, which has His Father’s name in it, is Yahshua.
And it has such a wonderful meaning that both Yoseph and Miriam marveled over it, because they knew full well their native language. It means YAH (translated “I Am”, Exodus 3:14) Shua (“mighty and powerful to save”).
So when the angel told this name to them, they were astounded, for His name was a declaration from The GOD of Heaven to mankind that there would be born a man who would be “mighty and powerful to save”.
“And you shall call His name Yahshua, for it is He who will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). When the GOD given birth Name of The Messiah is used this scripture makes total sense, so why use an “imag”ined name given by religious systems less than 600 years ago?

The Weight of Tradition

But does it really matter to GOD what Name we call The Messiah?  It certainly was important enough for the Savior to cry out during the last hours before He was betrayed, “Holy Father, keep them in YOUR Name, the Name which YOU have given Me” (John 17:11).
And as stated before, it was clear to the Jews what that name was and how to pronounce it. HalleluYAH is a universal expression, and YAH is the universal name of GOD. Yet so great is the weight of tradition that men have been blindly clinging to a name that has no meaning and makes the Scriptures mentioned void of meaning also.
Can anyone possibly maintain that the name of The Only True GOD, Father of ALL, is somehow incorporated into the name Jesus, or that the name Jesus means that HE will save HIS people from their sins?
Those with “eyes to see”, can see that The Messiah’s GOD given Olde English Name at birth was Yahshua, yet if you prefer the modern day English translation, of The Messiah’s GOD given birth Name, that would be Joshua, in Spirit and Truth…….
The vain “imag”inations that gave birth to the “catholic” and “christian” systems of religion have caused “The Way of Truth to be evil spoken of”, so why continue to use their “imag”ined name for “The Son of Living GOD”? As for me, my preference is to call The Messiah, Y’shua or Immanuel, for as the apostle Paul testified, “GOD was in The Messiah”. Paul did not testify that “god was the messiah”!
Immanuel(GOD with us) indeed, Spirit and Truth!
And while there is breath(spirit) there is hope!
For Miracles do happen!
Hope is there would be those who experience The Miracle that is receiving “a love of The Truth” for they will “see” that The Messiah’s GOD given birth name was not the “imag”ined ‘jesus’ of catholic/christian tradition! ‘jesus’ was a name they “imag”ined less than 600 years ago!
Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(tradition) that is of this wicked world and it’s systems of religion, for “the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one” (1John 5:19) indeed and Truth…….
Truth IS, a lie never was and is not…….
Abide in Truth……. francis

We live in a world where people are gunned down in cold-blooded murder for a few dollars.  Where mothers drown their children.   Where teenagers are beheaded by radicals religious zealots.  Where our officials look into the camera and lie: I did not have sex with that woman. Or,  I am not a crook.   We live in a world where depravity and sickness manifest, as in the case of the three women who were held against their will by “a monster” for ten years.

In Texas a “doctor” performed some late-term abortions by pulling the heads off  the babies born alive with his bare hands.

Then we have the Miami cannibal who ate the face off of a homeless man and could only be stopped when the policeman on the scene emptied his revolver into the crazed man.  We were told it was bath salts, but when the toxicology reports came back no bath salts were found.

What motivates a  teenager to take a gun to school and open fire on his class mates and then turn the gun on himself?  How does a man get up in the morning and go to a movie theater, and open fire on those attending?  How did the V-Tek shooter line up 33 people and kill them all before killing himself?  How did the concentration camp guards kill women and children by herding then into the gas chambers in the Nazi death-camps?

The above scripture, which is not a pleasant one to read and one that makes me squirm every time I read it, is not a popular message.  However, it provides an answer to the partial list of atrocities above.  It tells us plainly that the heart of man is; deceitful above all things and is desperately wicked.  Before some of you scoff at this, let me continue and please bare with me to the end, as there is good news there!

How many of us have lied, deliberately looked at someone and were not forthright with them?  How many men who are married lust after another woman, or spend hours looking at porn?  How many women hold bitterness against someone and won’t forgive?   Do we cheat on our income tax?  Do we get angry and yell at those around us?  When things don’t go our way do we curse and swear and grind our teeth?  Do we harbor unforgiveness?  Do we envy our neighbor when they get a raise, or a new car, or a promotion?  I could go on but I think we all get the point.  The natural inclinations of men and women in short all of us, lean in this direction.   We have a proclivity to do the things we don’t want to do!

The Bible calls of this stuff sin.  Get this, some of us willingly remain caught in the web of sin—our depravity—and accept the bondage that it brings.

Let’s walk through this.  The man addicted to porn is a slave to it.  The woman who is bitter and won’t forgive, is a prisoner of her own making.  The man who lusts after another woman is in bondage and his marriage is on the rails because of it.  Those of us who cheat will most likely do so again.  Uncontrolled anger can lead to all sorts of horrible actions.  Being envious leads to a root of bitterness, which can poison us from the inside out and eventually cause sickness.

OK.  So now that I’ve laid out the problem with all of us, here’s the good news, and I can’t say it any plainer than this.  The human race is being held captive, but one came to set the captives free.  There is one who has the power to come into our lives and change us.  There is one who when we ask Him to take the bondage of our depravity away he will do it.  If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed!

His name is Yashua, but most of us know Him as Jesus.  He is more powerful than the sum of all of our fears.  He can break our addictions, can mend our wounds, can heal our bitterness, can make us new creatures.  It is a free gift and all we have to do is ask Him.  This is the good news that was recorded in the Guidebook to the Supernatural i.e. The Bible, and it assures us that we can become victorious over the things which so easily ensnare us.  The heart of man is wicked but there is one, Jesus, who is greater than our depravity and when we ask we receive.  When we knock the door is open.

He came into the world to save it.  I’m not talking about religion, but a real experience.  I asked alone in my room 33 years ago and I’ve never been the same.  He loves us and he has the power we need to overcome our depravity.  He is only a prayer away….

Yahshua’s cleansing Reign’s comment: Remember my post on the words HOLY/WHOLE? Holy was to be restored and came from the old English word whole. Remember how this also went in line with the message I recieved from Him and refer to in that post?… here is the link to that post: Holy=Whole

A message received from Yahshua/Jesus The Christ on 05/18/2013

I prayed for confirmation that this word is from Him and that He wanted me to post this message. I got my confirmation. This message is obviously not for all people but I suspect that those whom it is for will know. This is NOT from me. My confirmation when I asked “is this from you, do you wish me to post this”? Then I opened the Bible and with closed eyes and He directed my hands to Jeremiah 1: 5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, [and] I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Now I am NOT claiming to be a prophet but in the last days the Bible states that we WILL prophesy and this was a clear “YES” to my questions. So I am posting the message:

lionfireB1

Those of you working against me in darkness, in hiding who turn things upside down and backwards, those who think I cannot see or that  I do not exist or that you will defeat me; are either working from a delusion of grandeur under great pride, or you are completely and perfectly possessed or you have many demons blocking the truth that they will not allow you to see. No matter, unless you repent in earnest, unless I, who can see your heart and can see your agony, your sorrow, your willingness to be broken and repaired by me. Unless there is honest and real repentance, and an intention to go down MY path and not theirs you will go down to the pit with those whom you now serve.

This was never meant to be. The creation of that place was only for the immortal, the angels who chose to follow Lucifer and Lucifer himself. But you have aligned yourselves with them, you have given your allegiance to them. You cannot serve two masters and you have chosen yours and the door is nearly closed for any other decision so THINK about who you are serving and be sure. Once that door is closed and it all begins, your DNA will be changed, just as my followers DNA will be changed. My elect will have their DNA changed to perfection and immortality while yours also shall become immortal, it shall be corrupted. My elect will be creations of beauty such as none have ever seen, delicate, brilliant, gentle and loving. Yours shall be course, ugly, encumbered and your hatred will grow intensely once you realize what you have been deceived into accepting. You will suffer great pains in your flesh and spirit that will continue to increase.  You will become like them, lashing out at each other and anyone else who may have a chance, anyone who has not yet been converted to your side will be your enemy. Your hatred will consume you from the inside out, like worms eating the dead. You will curse me, you will curse my followers and in the end you will curse Satan. But it was all done by you and your decisions to live in flesh and follow the world and Satan. You believed his promises over mine, you followed his word and rebuked mine, you looked to him for riches, fame, money, advancement and detested my Son and His sacrifice for you.

Many speak against me but they have never known me. They judge me by so called “Christians”. I did not create that group. Some who call themselves that do know me and I know them, but many, many more do not know me and I do not know them. They follow men. They follow false teachings. They worship idols and follow the ways of pagans. They worship other gods. They do not know MY Holy days, MY Sabbath days are not honored. They eat foods sacrificed to idols. They say, “He will understand, He knows my heart”. Yes, I do. I know that you care not enough to seek me out to search for what I have asked you to do. I understand, it’s you who do not. You do not speak out against vile perversions because you do not want to offend anyone. All the while you are offending me. What did I tell you was right? What did I tell you was wrong? Do you even know? Most do not. Most scoff at my word. It’s you who are doing this to yourselves. It is not I. You have chosen your way and it is NOT my way.

Shame to those who call themselves shepherds but leave my flocks to die of hunger and thirst and allow the wolves to ravage the sheep! SHAME I say! You will pay. You have left them defenseless and led them into evil territories. Many of you are the wolves, but hide your true identity to the crowds you gather for your serenity messages that have no nutrition in them. And you who call yourselves priests, on what authority do you do so? It is not on mine. There is ONLY ONE priest right now and none of you know Him. You allow your flock to call you “Father” there is ONLY ONE Father and you do not know Him! You cause your sheep to fall into the cracks and crevices by doing these things and then you do not even bother to seek out those whom you have lost. You will pay! You will pay for every message that has led your sheep astray. You will pay for all the suffering these sheep shall experience for eternity because you called yourself a shepherd, you stepped up to the pulpit, you delivered a worthless message, you did not teach them, you did not help them, you did not feed them, you only served yourself at their expense. Now the time has come to set things right. Repent and prepare or suffer the consequences that you deserve! My Son will still cover you in spite of the horrid sins you have committed, His heart is pure, His heart is full of love such as you have never experienced, His covering will hide, repair and save you from my wrath. It will save you from what you truly deserve. Reject Him, refuse in your pride to see what you have done, refuse to repent and I will come and set things right. It would be better for you had you never been born.

My Son is coming soon. I am coming soon. Prepare. Your time is short till I return and you will be caught unawares unless you know me. Prepare, I say. Knowing me is important, yet even more important is that I know YOU. Of course I know of you but do we have a relationship? Do you seek me out? Do you care about what I think? Is it me you try to please or men? Who are you following? Is it me or is it a false image, another Christ? I am coming soon. Prepare.
