Was Israel Guilty of the Death of Jesus?
Steven Ben-Nun: When God created them for our pleasure as well is to worship Him so when we take the animals life we’re taking away God’s worship. We’re coveting something that does not belong to us there’s many different things many Commandment thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not cove, all kinds of Commandments are broken at that particular moment. Let’s take a look again this is in Genesis 9; and this is the one that a lot of people like to quote and say that Noah was commanded to be able to eat all the meat he wanted as long as the blood was all squeezed out. But that’s not what God says; it’s in verse 4; only you shall not eat flesh with its life that is its blood. See? Actually that’s translated pretty good only you shall not but it doesn’t say only that. It actually says; but (Hebrew of verse 4); akh’–Bäsär B’naf’shô dämô lo tokhëlû; you don’t eat any flesh, the stressing of the fact of the blood and the soul, it’s not life right there; the word is nefesh, B’naf’shô; with his soul. See dämô; He stresses the word dämô; the blood; his blood. In other words you don’t kill and eat any flesh that has a soul. And that’s what the animals have, they have a soul. So He specifies that because there are remes; the creeping things that do not have blood so He specifies that.
Now to make it even more sure watch what He says in the following verse (5); surely I will require your life’s blood for everybody beast I will require it and for every man from every man’s brother I will require the life of a man. Wait a minute think about what He just said; God says; I will require your life for every beast that you kill.
And then He says; and for every man; did that mean we can eat the men then as long as we got the blood drained out of them? Because Bäsär; its flesh and if you want to take it the literal way; the way you’re saying it that you know. No as long as we drain the blood out we can it. That’s not what God said He’s says; don’t the flesh see, in other words don’t eat animal’s period. And then He goes further to confirm what He’s saying. And He says (Genesis 9:5); surely I will require your life’s blood from every beast I will require it and from every man from every man’s brother I will require the life of a man. (Verse 6); whoever sheds man’s blood by man’s blood shall he shed for the image of God He made man. But he also included the animals in that. So how can you say that you can kill the animal as long as you drain the blood out when God just got through saying that if you take and take that animal’s life He’ll require your blood for it as well? Understand? Now the thing is we don’t have the ability to give our life for all the animals that we’ve taken already Christ did come though to take our place. He came and He became; He spilled His Own blood on this earth it should be us. It should be us that’s paying for this sin but He took our place is what He did. He took our place because the sin that we’ve done to the animals.
Remember Jesus says; in Matthew 12:7 I believe it is; that if you knew what this meant; I like the way Jesus says it; if you knew what this meant. It was obvious to people and even today they don’t get it. So Jesus says; if you knew what this meant I desire mercy not sacrifice. See there He didn’t want the sacrifice Jesus tells Himself He didn’t want the sacrifice. Jeremiah says; He didn’t want it. Isaiah says; He didn’t want it. David says; He doesn’t want. Hosea says; He doesn’t want it. In fact the angel of the air is found in the Book of Hosea believe it’s Chapter 4 says; and when she embraces you with her wings you will be a shame because of your sacrifice.
So many things can be said right here so the thing is we could not; it would also by the way the death of Yeshua if Levitical Law is correct as I said then they were not sinning by offering Him up they were only obeying God’s Command if that’s truly what God Commanded. But according to Zechariah and according to Daniel they were in Sin killing the Holy One of Israel. There’s other scripture’s about that as well and every one of them find Israel guilty prophesying that they were going to kill the Holy One of Israel. So if God says; that they’re going to be guilty and God could not say even through His Prophets that they were guilty if His Law gave them the right to kill the lambs for the sins of Israel. See you have to think about that that’s for sure.
Let’s take one more thing I want to share with you and by the way some of these deeper teachings I’d like to start sharing may be on a separate channel or something like that because we’re going to try to maybe go and dedicate this channel more to news for those for those that prefer just to follow our news, our Prophetic News broadcast there. So we’re looking at maybe starting a channel there for the deeper teachings here; those of you that really do appreciate these.
This is; like I said this actually goes together we’re looking at the Story of Jonah ah; Jesus says (Matthew 12:38); some of the Scribes and Pharisees said into Him; Teacher we want to see a sign from You. (Verse 39); but He answered and said to them; an evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign and yet no sign will be given into it but the sign of Jonah and the Prophet, excuse me; Jonah the Prophet not and the Prophet. (Verse 40); for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster so will the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Right now I want to bring this up to you as well because those of you that have been reading the Essene Gospel there that you’ve written me about you maybe have already come across this already I know we’ve sent out hundreds of PDFs on that. And of course if you’re watching for the first time you would like to get a copy of that we’re in the process of editing it. When I say editing it we’re just adding in where you find this in your own Canon so as you read along you’re able to link it okay this is where that’s at. It’s in Matthew or it’s in Mark or it’s in Luke because it’s very similar it’s just picks up the things that are that are not there. But anyway ah; let me find this for you real quick. I had it up just a minute ago and for some reason this rascal has; the page got dropped out of here speaking of dropped out here that was another thing too.
We actually have one of the old, old, old Humane Gospels when it was actually first put in print and we are intending on putting this in print as well once we’re finished with the editing there for those that want to be able to get it in print form. But we’ll announce that we have that. But because it’s so old part of it fell out the other day on the floor and I picked it back up and put it back in it fell out again and fell out again. And finally yesterday I decided I was curious; what is this part that just keeps falling out? And it was the sign of Jonah it was where in the Humane Gospel where Jesus speaks about the sign of Jonah. And so I thought you know I’m gonna read it again because I remembered when I had read this before ah; when He speaks about it in the Humane Gospel it’s; He goes into a little deeper. And He applies it not only to the generation in which Jesus was in then but He applies it here to our generation. And it was very interesting to me because He speaks about this as a sign that He gives them but He doesn’t explain what the sign is.
He only tells it; and we know that from the Christian Bible that we have today the Canon that we have now that He says (Matthew 12:38); that the sign of Jonah is that He’d be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights. And the other thing that’s really funny about that there’s so much argument about well they say; He wasn’t in there are three days and three nights. And there’s always argument it doesn’t line up exactly with Jonah but yet we always quote this. Let me quote to you though; it’s (Essene Humane Gospel of Yeshua) Chapter 62 and this is the chapter where Jesus speaks about the mystery of Jonah or the secret sign of the fish. It says; Jesus gives the sign of Jonah the secret sign of the fish; in Chapter 62; I’ll start with verse 1. So I was reading this again and this is what caught my attention. And it says (verse 1); as for the sign that thou ask of I say unto you; there shall be no sign given unto My disciples but the sign of Jonah. Almost verbatim what we have in our Gospel. (Verse 2); and one of the disciple said unto Jesus; tell us please of this sign of Jonah and how shall we know it? (Verse 3); and Jesus said unto them again, “I say once more unto ye, there shall be no sign given, but the sign of Jonah. Know ye Jonah, and ye shall know My sign, for Jonah be in the stomach of the great fish; so I shall be in the greater fish. Now by the way I believe in the Greek language it actually says; the word monster. If you look in the Hebraic language; about Jonah though it actually says (Hebrew); Däg Gädôl; which means the great or the big fish. And I don’t know what it was in Aramaic but they translate it as fish so I’m assuming its fish as well. So He says (verse 3); so I shall be in the greater fish; all right; because He says; Jonah was in the stomach of the great fish. He says; so I shall be in the greater fish, and again I say unto you, as the fish was in the great sea, so shall I be in the greater sea, for in that age to come I shall be in the fish even as Jonah.
Let all those who hath eyes, see and all those who hath ears, hear, that I giveth unto ye only the sign of the great fish that ye may know when I cometh again unto you.” So in this particular case Jesus applies this in the future and yet I do agree it is the sign of Jonah as far as He was in the heart of the earth like Jonah was in the belly of the fish but I really began to wonder about this. Now my wife and I, we had discussed a little bit previously to this the part of falling out because we had read it before and God had given her some very interesting insight on this as well. She said if you’ll notice with Jonah; and actually like the way she put it; she said; it’s like a three-part sign that God does here. But in the case of Jonah when Jonah does come out of the fish we know that he wants to take a ship to Tarshis he doesn’t want to go to Nineveh so God ends up having swallowed by a fish after they throw him off the ship and fish brings him up to the shore and spits him out.
And Jonah goes to Nineveh and of course the Ninevites worship the fish god. Keep that in mind it’s no different than today because the Vatican they worship the fish god. The Pope is their fish god he is Dagon the fish god okay. But what was interesting and this is what my wife Jana brought out and I thought it was very interesting point that she made when he goes to them he says to them; repent or God is going to destroy your nation. You got forty days to repent and they repented in sackcloth and ashes. But did you notice though Jonah never said they had to offer a sacrifice? All they had to do is repent that was the only requirement God had. There was no shedding of blood there was no killing repent and God would spare you or in 40 days God would destroy the city. And the entire city now; notice it wasn’t just the people; the king commanded that sackcloth and ashes even be put on the animals. He wanted everybody to repent of course the animals are without sin; as Jesus clearly says if you knew what this meant I desire mercy not sacrifice.
In the Hebrew it says; you would not have bound the innocent; that is in the masculine plural in Hebrew and it’s clearly speaking of animal sacrifices that had nothing to do with Jesus yet He is the Lamb of God. I agree as I said before so yes repentance and not sacrifice is definitely one. And one of the things that I had shared with my wife at that time too was that even as we saw that Jesus was in the grave for three days three nights we also find the Two Witnesses will be dead and lay in the street for three days and three nights as well. But now they’re not hid inside of anything they’re not in the heart of the earth; they’re not suffered to be in graves.
And so I began to pray and ask the Lord; You gave this sign even says to His disciples in verse 4 (Essene Humane Gospel of Yeshua Chapter 62); and the disciples wondered at the words of Jesus, for they knew of Jonah but understood not the sign and some of them questioned among themselves concerning the sign. And Jesus hearing them, said unto them again: “Be ye not troubled over the sign, for it is yet to come in an age far off; in an age far off, you living in that age. He says; for I tell ye truly, some of ye know the sign now and keepeth the secret, but all shall understand before I taketh leave; for only My true disciples knoweth the sign and the meaning, but reveal it not unto unbelievers.” You know why it was not able to be revealed back then because Jesus knew that Satan if he knew what that sign was he would try to mimic it to the “t” and the in the Vatican has done just that. Now I share with you what that sign is. Jesus says (verse 3); let’s look at it once more; I say once more unto you there shall be no sign given but the sign of Jonah know you Jonah and you shall know my sign for Jonah be in the stomach of the greater fish. Or did He not say in another place when he was talking about the sparrows; He said; you’re Father; your Heavenly Father careth for them? He even says; one could not fall to the ground that Your Father doesn’t know about it.
Imagine what happens then when animals are slayed murdered and stuff for the sake of our bellies you don’t think God doesn’t know about it? Sure He does. But He says; you are worthy more than sparrows. See the greater fish is you or I say you it’s the witnesses that will be coming in this day; it’s mankind. Did He not say to the two I believe its Peter and James; when He came to them and they were at the boat; they were fishermen? He says; come I’ll make you fishers of men. What was the fish that swallowed Jonah; he was a fisher of man. The fish became the fisher and Jonah became the fish and he was swallowed by the fish. The fish was the fisher of men and Jesus took His disciples and He made then fishers of men. Interesting isn’t it? So He says; I will be in the greater fish. We are greater than the created animals so therefore He’s going to be in the greater fish; the greater fish is the Two Witnesses that are coming He will be in them. He says (verse 3); even; excuse me; as the fish was in the Great Sea so shall I be in the Greater Sea. The Greater Sea that’s the time we’re living in now. We are in that age of the Greater Sea and it is Jesus will be inside these Two Witnesses. And of course He refers to the people as a multitude of waters we see in I believe it’s in the Book of Revelation that’s the sea; the sea of humanity. He’ll be in the Greater Sea He’ll be in the fish fishing for men. Looking to bring those out which ones is He trying to bring out? Just like the Ninevites, the Ninevites worship the fish god. So did the Catholic people and all those religions that follow suit with the Catholic Church their worshiping the fish god just like the Ninevites did. You see what is it Satan knew there was something about the sign of Jonah because he heard Jesus’ words. And he was trying his best to figure out what this mystery really was because the disciples didn’t reveal it. This is the only hour that it can be made known in because now Satan can do nothing about it. His 2,000 years have now passed and now he’s left hopeless so he put and crowned his god with a fish hat; Dagon the fish god hat; he crowned the Pope because he couldn’t understand how that Jesus would be in the Greater Fish so he just made these secession of Popes as if they were Christ on earth. That’s what the Vicar of Christ is a substitute for Christ assuming they were actually taking the place of Christ. Whereas Christ’s own revelation or His own insight to the mystery was that He wouldn’t be in the fish; the Greater Fish not that somebody takes His place no one takes His place. Your Two Witnesses will be fishers of men not the multiplying a fish which He never did that was added again they broke the Commandment of God adding to the Word of God.
