The Imam will point to him and say: “This is the True Messiah!”

In a recent article that I wrote: Damascus, the Anti-Christ and Armageddon, I came to the conclusion after reading the comments section that the Muslims are the only ones who have any real understanding of what I am getting at. According to one comment: “Then Jesus will return, the Imam will point to him and say, this is the True Messiah!”

I have also concluded that the genealogy given to Jesus to the House of David and in turn Judah in the Gospels, was a later insertion by the likes of Paul, a Jew with Roman citizenship and later adopted by the Roman Emperor and his Bishop Eusebius at the Council of Nicea. The Gospel texts are written in Greek, not in Aramaic, they are not original documents or eye witnesses accounts by the Essenes or the disciples. They appear to be a patchwork quilt of the original teachings of the Teachers of Righteousness intermingled with “Jewish” i.e. Judaic and Roman bias, containing a dubious historical backdrop that often contradicts the Jewish historian Josephus.

A study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi texts makes this very evident. What these texts also make evident is a major split in Israel between the Judaic faction in Judea and Jerusalem, and the Joseph tribes from the north in Galilee. The Pharisees were of the opinion that nothing good could come out of Galilee and it is interesting to note that in John’s Gospel he often quotes Jesus as saying:“The Jews say you… but I tell you…”

This implies a fundamental divergence of basic principles between the Judaic Sadducee faction and the Essene Joseph faction in Galilee and in Qumram.

Muslims honour Moses, Joshua and Jesus. Not David. And they see Jesus as a prophet, not the “son of God,”which I believe is an accurate conclusion. Yeshua (Joshua) was by inheritance the “firstborn,” the grandson of Ephraim, blessed by Israel. In the Gospels Yeshua (Joshua-Jesus) says in frustration, “If you have seen me then you have seen the father. Why do you not understand what I am saying?” Or words to that effect. His title of “firstborn”is by inheritance and from the Joseph tribes not the tribe of Judah. As the firstborn he is a representative of Jacob, Israel itself. Hence, if you see him, then you see the father. This has been clouded and covered over with misinterpretation, lack of understanding and blatant interpolation into the texts of Judaic bias.

The title has also been skewered into a Greco/Roman version of the “Gods” and the planets that are associated with them. The Gods and Goddesses of the ancient world are basically Astronomy, stone carved in human form representing the planets. Artists, potters, fashioning celestial bodies from the clay of the earth in their own image. Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Neptune look nothing like we do. Jesus has been “elevated” to God status, in competition with these planets.

An interpolation of an unrealistic “virgin birth,”in turn, ensures a dissociation of Yeshua/Jesus from his father, his “Joseph”roots. The authors who wrote this could of course have been taking magic mushrooms at the time. Magic mushrooms aside, the implications of a real, human birth and Joseph as his biological father through a logical progression going back includes a biological inheritance to the Joseph tribes, the Northern Kingdom of Israel, Joshua who dedicated the people to the law in Samaria at Mount Gerizim and his title through Ephraim being the “firstborn” and in effect, a representative of Israel itself.

According to the archaeologist Aviram Oshri, Bethlehem in Judea was unoccupied during Herodian times, but Bethlehem in Galilee, a short distance from Nazareth, was a thriving town and Herodian remains have been found on the site. This Bethlehem would be the most logical place for Mary to go in search of a midwife during her confinement. Rather than Jesus being born in the city of King David, he was born in the city of Joshua. Which for our purposes starts to make more sense than the counter view.

The Quran denounces monarchy and for good reason. Israel was abandoned by “God” because they broke the Covenant by demanding a King. The first commandment is to love God alone, not a monarch or even a high temple priest. 1 Samuel 8:

Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.

But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.

And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king.

And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.

And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.

And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.

And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.

Building a Temple in Jerusalem and re-instating a King David from the line of Judah, is to all intense and purposes an abomination to “God.” As is a “High Priest” in any form. The Judges of Israel, the elders, formed what we would call a constitutional body as opposed to a ruling elite class of people. “Jesus” would have been well aware of this. It comes as no surprise then that when the devil tempted him in the desert with all the kingdoms of world, he turned the devil down. When the people wanted to make him a king, he left for the hills. When Pilate asked him if he was the king of the “Jews,” he simply replied, “The words are yours.”

Early Christianity, which adopted the teachings of the Essenes and the Teachers of Righteousness, was an Apostolic Church. It was not based on a hierarchical structure. And any “leader”might have been first, but was always regarded as first amongst equals. Neither was in alignment with Temple practice as it was under Alexander Jannaeus, Caiaphas and other notable characters in Jerusalem well documented by Josephus, a Jewish scholar with Roman citizenship, who recorded both Jewish and Roman history between B.C. and A.D.

The return of the Messiah might very well be a concept as opposed to an individual, and it might very well be that from the Shiite, the Mahdi, the Imam, that the truth of Yeshua, which has been grossly misrepresented for almost 2,000 years, is made known to the world. Whether you are religious or not, whether you believe in “God”or not, the fundamental principles outlined above have as much baring on the world today as they did 2,000 years ago. We currently find ourselves owned and controlled by an “elite” group of people who more often than not, due to their self created privileged status, operate well outside of the law and have immunity, often committing gross violates against the populations of the earth. The words of Samuel are as relevant now as when they were originally written. The idolatry that was once in the form of clay, images made in our own narcissistic image, has been replaced by the idolatry of political, religious and entertainment figures to whom we look to in worship and adoration. Then as now, we are selling our souls.

    You do realise Muslims honor David as prophet as well and believe in the virgin birth of Jesus?

      Jews and Christians are not the only people who have not got it 100% right. The Quran also relies on previous texts written by Hebrews, Jews and Christians. Without these texts Islam would not have an historical framework to work from. According to the Dead Sea Scrolls, The Essenes, the Teachers of Righteousness,David is not considered to be one of the Righteous. They base this premise on monogamy. Noah only had one wife, the Righteous practice monogamy due to this reason. David was not a paragon of virtue, he was certainly not of the calibre of any of the prophets. He had Nathan killed so he could become King. He had Bathsheba’s husband killed so he could marry her. As for the virgin birth, this is a Greek not a Hebrew concept. Jesus was not Greek. In Greek Mythology, the “Gods” rape mortal women and have children by them. The virgin birth is in alignment with Greek thinking and belief at the time.

        You said: “Muslims honour Moses, Joshua and Jesus. Not David”

        My post is not about Muslims not getting it right %100 of the time, but you.

        Its about you stating something that is untrue abut muslims to buttress your claims.
        Now everyone makes mistakes, certainly when learning about a faith that’s new to you.

        Your unwillingness or inability to accept it when this is pointed out to you, however exposes, I believe, a more serious problem:

        You pick and chose items that suit your intrests and beliefs and disregard any evidence to the contrary.

        The fear of God is beginning of all wisdom.

          Point taken. However when I hear Muslims speak, they say they honor Moses and Jesus. I have never heard them say they honor David. SO my apologies.

          As for learning a “new faith,” Islam itself is based on an Old Faith taking it’s roots from Hebrew and Christians texts, which are in themselves often biased and inaccurate. I think the term “Fear of truth is the beginning of all wisdom,”would be a better acronym. This would apply to all three religions.

          As regards Solomon, most of the texts ascribed to him were Egyptian Wisdom teachings that were copied and included in Hebrew texts. And to date, no matter how much they might dig under the Al-Aqsa Mosque, they have yet to find any evidence of the first Temple supposedly built by Solomon. The only remains are those of the Second Temple, the wailing wall. The conclusion reached is that Solomon was an Egyptian King, not the son of David and his Temple was an Egyptian Temple.

          It would seem that Judaism, Christianity and Islam pick and choose as you put it, in more far reaching ways. My objective is to search for accurate and as far as possible credible interpretations that are backed up by original sources. This is an on going and ever changing exercise. 100 years ago we did not have the benefit of the oldest texts so far available, being the Dead Sea Scrolls which has enabled scholars to get a more accurate reading and understanding of the original material. The material we have had until this discovery has proved to be biased and often inaccurate. One glaring example is the use of the word Lucifer in Isaiah. This word is not used in the original texts.

          Perhaps Muslims might want to rethink David and Solomon and put them into a more accurate framework?

            Hi,

            Muslims regard Moses and Jesus, David and Solomon and Muhammed all as Prophets to be respected, peace be upon them.

            As Muhammed was the last that brought the message of Islam, the others are mentioned in the Quran not in a complete manner.

            But to believe that Solomon was an Egyptian king and thus an idolater would place a Muslim outside the bounds of his religion.

            What do you base this on? and what do you mean by Egyptian wisdom teaching? I’m intrigued.
