Ye have heard the blasphemy...
“Ye have heard the blasphemy” When Jesus Christ stood before the high priest and was asked if he were, “ the Christ, the Son of the Blessed”, Jesus said, “I am: AND YE SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN SITTING ON THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, AND COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.”
The high priest tore his clothes and said to the council of chief priests, scribes and elders, “What need we any further witnesses, ye have heard the blasphemy.”And then they all condemned him to be guilty of death. . And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him and … strike him with the palms of their hands.Mark 14:63-65..
One of the remarkable definitions of the word, “blasphemy”that fits this scene of Jesus standing before the high priest is: The act of claiming for oneself the attributes and rights of God. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/blasphemy
Jesus Christ never lied and he certainly told them the truth that day. Amazingly, when the “religious leaders” RELIGION is confronted with the spirit of Truth, (Romans 8:14-16) It is vehemently rejected as blasphemy. It is clear that the high Priest used blasphemy in both senses, 1. The act of claiming for oneself the attributes and rights of God and 2 A contemptuous or profane act, utterance, or writing concerning God or a sacred entity.It is indeed a great paradox of how God, creator of heaven and earth, came to the earth as man born of man and as God revealed through the Son, Jesus Christ, would not be known or received by the very one’s who professed to know him most. (John 1:10,11).
What is the message here for us? The one who is the Word of God incarnate, who is the Christ, the anointed one, the son of God is asked who he is, He answers truthfully, and then He is accused of blasphemy. Have things changed any today from 2,000 years ago? Certainly not! My understanding and application is: THE RELIGION OF THIS WORLD DOES NOT AND CAN NOT RECOGNIZE THE CREATOR (THE ONE IT PREACHES ABOUT) BUT RATHER IT WORSHIPS CREATION (AND ALL THINGS CREATED BY RELIGION). (Romans 1:25)..
My prayer dear Lord, let me stand strong on your promise in Romans 8:1: There is therefore NOW no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” The Truth can only be seen in the Spirit. The flesh will always scream, “BLASPHEMY” when confronted with the truth because the flesh can not comprehend the things of the spirit. It is OUR SPIRIT THAT BEARS WITNESS THAT WE ARE THE SONS OF GOD… (Romans 8:14-16)

These things speak,and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. Titus 2: 15 . Note: I love Israel and the Jews. I am a born again Christian who truly believes the Jews are God's chosen people and abhor replacement theology. For the past year I've been closely following Amir TSARFATI on his BEHOLD ISRAEL YouTube channel. I don't use Facebook, was basically thrown off about 8 years ago for posting content that spread hate (simply posted photos of Islamic thugs murdering innocent civilians) . I also don't use Twitter. Left after 10 years, nearly 10,000 followers, when new rules blocked my 1st amendment rights of free speech. I've been extremely impressed with Amir TSARFATI. I've been thrilled by his ministry. He shares my conservative views, especially achieving peace through strength and not through appeasement. He is very intelligent, articulate, handsome, courageous, charismatic, conservative, outspoken, fairly sound
Israeli News Live REBUKE Steven Ben Nun and his wife Jana In accordance with 2 Timothy 2:4, 4:2-4, Titus 1:11-16, 2:15; Ephesians 5:11; 2 Timothy 4:15, and Galatians 1:8,9 I rebuke Steven Ben-Nun and his wife Jana for misuse of scripture to misrepresent and twist the truth. For the past few years Steven has come out as an anti Zionist and yet has blatantly sided with the Russians and Syrians, making the USA and Israel out as the bad guys. The truth be told, both sides and all sides are under the global luciferion elite. By the fact that Steven does not point this out makes him a Jew selling out his own people by stating that the Golan needs to be given back to Syria and a Russian tool if not an actual Russian agent. We are pleased that Steve Ben-Nun and his wife Jana have woke up and walked away from Zionism. Please read link distinguishing Zionism from true biblical love of Israel and the Israeli people which we as Christians believe. LINK https://thirdheaventraveler.blogspot

Dr. Gene Kim Teaching video on 501c3 conspiracy I earnestly pray you receive this opportunity to correct your errant ways. You are a gifted and brilliant young man. Most of your teaching is rock solid. But these glaring issues addressed below must be addressed. BBC International Dear Dr. Eugene Kim, Thank you Sir for responding to my comment (reference a) It’s obvious by your response you haven’t read the blog I sent you about why Brick and Mortar Buildings called churches are not biblical. Most of what you sent me in your response by way of your video teaching is addressed in the blog. As far as using Romans 13:1-7 to defend 501C3 and your building - I address below. After careful consideration - I have to write this as a testimony as a witness submitted as Ambassador for The
