HOW ERANO EVANGELISTA DECEIVED HUMANITY ABOUT GOD AND JESUS

A fellow on Facebook gave me a link by a self-proclaimed prophet on how man kind supposedly was deceived about God. This article intends to expose an article this snake of Satan (Erano) has written and I hope that this equips you against scum like this man.

Jesus and of course Moses warn us about false prophets who will come to lead us astray. Also, any Tom, Dick and Harry in this modern age can claim to be a prophet like Moses and it is Erano's burden of proof to show he is a prophet like Moses, thus we need to listen to him. But considering he is not even Jewish or even a convert like Elijah, we can safely assume that this man is just a crazy individual.
Now onto the expose.

The first argument he tries to employ is accuse the apostles of proclaiming falsehood. He states that since Paul said if there is no resurrection, then he and other disciples are false witnesses and appeals to Job 14:7-12 and 1 Corinthians 15:13-20 to try and refute the apostles who were proclaiming the resurrection of the dead.

Firstly, Let's read Job 14:7-12
14 “Mortals, born of woman,
    are of few days and full of trouble.
2 They spring up like flowers and wither away;
    like fleeting shadows, they do not endure.
3 Do you fix your eye on them?
    Will you bring them[a] before you for judgment?
4 Who can bring what is pure from the impure?
    No one!
5 A person’s days are determined;
    you have decreed the number of his months
    and have set limits he cannot exceed.
6 So look away from him and let him alone,
    till he has put in his time like a hired laborer.

7 “At least there is hope for a tree:
    If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
    and its new shoots will not fail.
8 Its roots may grow old in the ground
    and its stump die in the soil,
9 yet at the scent of water it will bud
    and put forth shoots like a plant.
10 But a man dies and is laid low;
    he breathes his last and is no more.
11 As the water of a lake dries up
    or a riverbed becomes parched and dry,
12 so he lies down and does not rise;
    till the heavens are no more, people will not awake
    or be roused from their sleep."

Firstly, This appeal to Job is fallacious. In the Old Testament, there isn't a clear understanding of the afterlife. Jesus was the one to reveal life and immortality to light through the gospel. Job is speaking in a context where he was not aware of heaven, hell or an afterlife. Is there a contradiction? no, It's simply reading out of context and refusing to harmonize the texts of scripture.

Once Jesus came, the apostles were then aware of the resurrection of the dead and the judgement to come as well as eternal life coming through Jesus Christ. Paul's point is not refuted because Job was unaware of a future resurrection. My treatise on exposing this snake of a prophet will continue.

His next objection is Paul said Jesus Christ was the first fruit from among the dead meaning the first to be raise but Matthew said that others rose from the dead beforehand, thus another contradiction. One way this text can be understood is that Jesus is the first to rise from the dead BUT DID NOT DIE, whereas others who rose from the dead died again, which deals with this supposed contradiction.
Erano doesn't realise that those who were resurrected were not given glorified bodies at the time. Jesus however has been risen with a GLORIFIED BODY, that is why his resurrection is singled out as central to the Christian faith.

His next objection is Jesus being crucified on a tree or on a cross. What this guy fails to mention is that the Greek word Xulon has more than one meaning. In fact in his debate with Osama Abdallah in 2004, Sam Shamoun has responded to this objection quite well and this is the recording of what he said in the debate regarding Xulon. The recording can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bp2lwa7JX3U
This pseudo prophet then whines about Galatians 3:13 and Paul's application of Deuteronomy 21:22-23 to Jesus and makes the claim that Jesus was accursed because he transgressed God's commands, led people after other gods to serve them and taught other gods to his people.

Let's deal with this snake's distortions one by one. Jesus took the curse of the Law on himself that he may redeem us for it, but it doesn't mean he sinned at all, The Father poured out his wrath on his Son because Jesus had taken the sins on the world on himself. He became a guilt offering as Isaiah 53 puts it, or an asham that took away our sin. His quotation of Deuteronomy 24:16 doesn't disprove my position. Deuteronomy 24:16 and Ezekiel 18:20 which are the same as one another are not addressing vicarious atonement, it is referring to us being responsible for our own sins. Jesus dying for our sins is not repudiated by the passages in the slightest.

As I have stated in my video response to Eli Cohen, Passages like Jeremiah 19 condemns human sacrifice but nowhere in the TANAKH does it explicitly say or implicitly say that a righteous man cannot willingly lay his life down for others to atone for them, I have often spoke about the death of the righteous found in the Talmud which I have spoken about in other videos. Although Moses offers himself to be blotted out, God refuses to blot him out and says "I only blot out those who sin against me". Nevertheless, the possiblity of vicarious sacrifice is not out of the question.

Also Deuteronomy 4:2 has absolutely nothing to do what so ever with adding an explanation or espousing on the Law or anything close to it, it is speaking about adding or subtracting from the law that has been given. That is all it is referring to.

Additionally, Jesus NEVER called us to serve other gods and worship them. On the contrary, he says that the greatest commandment is there is one God, and you love him with everything and love your neighbor as yourself which can be found in Mark 12:28-29. The God in question is YHWH, not anyone else.

Considering the belief in the Trinity, that by definition makes Jesus YHWH, although he is not the Father in heaven. Jesus would never endorse worship of other gods whether they are ancient or modern so called deities.

The point about Xulon has already been covered so that needn't be done, as with the subject of what firstfruit means. Also, Erano's misuse of Galatians 1:8 doesn't falsify the Gospel of Matthew. One point he utters is:

"Paul says that Jesus was cursed for us by being hanged on a tree while the present Christian teachings say that Jesus was crucified for our sins."

There is no contradiction here because Jesus became a curse of us and a ransom to pay the price for our sins. It is simply this demented prophets unwillingness to read the scripture as it is meant to be read, IN CONTEXT.

Now of course the so called prophet tries to pit the prophets and apostles against one another and that the highest standard is prophets.
"Did Jesus say that the true authority regarding him were the apostles?
The answer is NO! In fact, he even reiterated that they should consult:
1. The Law of Moses, a prophet; 2. The prophets; and 3. The Psalms of David, also a prophet"

This is not refuting the idea of the apostles being a valid source of authority, all it is simply Jesus telling the apostles that everything in the scriptures pointing to him has been fulfilled. Furthermore, this snake is quoting the Gospels, while at the same time accusing them of false witness. If the Gospels and the Epistles are good enough to prove his case, it's good enough to refute him. Also, If the apostles wrote the Gospels, then Jesus GAVE THEM AUTHORITY TO SPEAK ON MATTERS OF SCRIPTURES!!! The apostles submitted to the writings of the prophets but this wouldn't negate them being equal to the apostles in terms of inspiration.

Another note, Erano admits that one MUST listen to the prophet like Moses. Of course his blind followers quote his own website to prove this, but quoting their prophet's website is not going to cut ice with me, I want scripture or reliable commentaries, not the wishful musings of a man who cannot substantiate his claims of prophethood. Even though he claims he had a true prophecy in his testimony, ONE Prophecy, he must have several and if he has made ONE false prophecy, he is a false prophet and we are commanded to avoid him.

While the TANAKH doesn’t document every prophecy that the prophets made, we know that all their prophecies are reliable and accurate, both Jews and Christians will affirm that.

Furthermore the very New Testament he quotes says the prophet like Moses is JESUS CHRIST. And considering that Jesus gave the apostles authority to teach and that the apostles said Jesus was the prophet like Moses, thus by Erano's criteria, I will follow Jesus and the apostles, not Erano. Not to mention the Father in heaven said in Mark 9:7 "Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!"" Who is God the Father telling us to listen to? Jesus or Erano. It's Jesus he is telling people to follow, not some Gentile who is far removed from when the biblical writings were finished.

He then claims that John 14:15-17 speaks about a man to come and claims that the Holy Spirit is simply the Word of God.

Let's correct these basic errors. The Holy Spirit is NOT the Word of God at all. The Word of God is either the words that God utters, or Jesus Christ himself which John 1:1 speaks of. The Word is distinct from the Spirit and the Holy Spirit is the one who spoke through David. The text explicitly says this
"2 “The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me;
    his word was on my tongue."
It doesn't say that the Lord's word was David's tongue, it says that HIS word was on David's tongue, it doesn't say or imply that the word is the Spirit. Also, It is by the indwelling of the Spirit of the Lord that the prophet like Moses has on his tongue the words of God.

Also, The Holy Spirit is the one who is the Comforter who is sent to the apostles, which is fulfilled in John and the Book of Acts. So it is a literal spirit or the Comforter is the Holy Spirit, contrary to what this exegetical novice of a prophet claims.

Now Erano claims this in the article, he says:
"Now, this coming prophet like Moses was mostly believed by Christians to be Jesus as taught by the Apostles of Jesus (Acts. 3:22). Now, because of what Jesus said about the coming “Counselor” who has the “Holy Spirit” or Word of God, Jesus was referring to the coming prophet like Moses. This means that the apostles made a false interpretation of the prophecy and never testified about the true Jesus.
How do we identify the real prophet like Moses - what is His sign?
And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.”
Deuteronomy 18:19 (NKJV)
To identify the true prophet like Moses, he must be the one who speaks in the Name of God and will reveal to us the Name of God!"
Does fulfill the requirements? Yes, In fact the teaching he conveyed to the apostles, It came from the Father and not from his own mouth.

"John 7:16 Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me. 17 Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. 18 Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him. 19 Has not Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?”"

Thus Jesus was speaking in the Father's name, which he shares with the Father and that is YHWH. The comforter and the prophet like Moses are not the same entity, they are two, and ironically both are members of the Holy Trinity. Additionally, the prophet like Moses is not limited to one individual and it culminates in Christ being the ultimate fulfillment of the prophecy, not some Gentile from a distant land who is centuries removed from the time of Christ. Wow, sounds familiar that last bit, it reminds me of a similar idea with the Muslim people. Though Rabbinic Jews and Christians disagree on the subject of Jesus being the prophet like Moses, both will a agree that the prophet like Moses refers to the prophetic office of Israel and that several prophets come after Moses and Christians believe that it culminated in Jesus Christ’s coming.

Of course Erano brings up Moses and the incident with his name not being blotted out which I have already covered. Also another note, Even if Moses request was granted, it wouldn't be enough to satisfy God's wrath, only Christ could do that.

On a side note here, Jesus death on the cross is an IRRELEVANT criteria of being the prophet like Moses, it's just as irrelevant as saying Batman is a prophet like Moses simply because people looked up to him as an model of justice. The objection brought by Erano is moot Jesus death doesn't violate Deuteronomy 18:18 at all.

The next of objection presented is the subject of building the temple itself that it is built by a descendant of David, not a literal son of God, however Jesus being the Son of God doesn't negate him being the Son of David at all, that's a non argument to be honest. Also, the section about the point about God saying "I'll be his father and he will be my son" refers to the King's coronation, not to ontological sonship.

Within the text of 2 Samuel 7:12-17, it refers to the coronation of the King Solomon. This is royal sonship. Although Jesus was the Son from eternity, the sonship that is spoken of in Hebrews 1:5-8 is sonship in terms of his coronation, which occurred after his resurrection and sat at the Father's righthand. All three events that I have mentioned are to do with the coronation of the Messianic King. David, Solomon, then the Messiah himself. Solomon is God's son in reference to his coronation, which doesn't refute Christians as Erano claims the passage does.

He speaks on the disobedience of the people which won't be covered in this video, I want to specfically tackle the points about Jesus and the apostles. He speaks about the subject of the building of the temple being carried out by another descendent of David and Solomon and comes to the subject of Jesus being mentioned and of course refers to the Immanuel prophecy in Isaiah 7:14, which not only was a sign to Ahaz, but a sign to the Jews that the Messiah had come.

I have written on this subject here of Isaiah 7:14 here: http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/taken-out-of-context.html

The first point Erano blathers on about is the Holy Spirit being the word of God which I have already covered and the Holy Spirit speaking through David means the Holy Spirit is speaking HIS word, it doesn't mean the word is the Holy Spirit, the context already refutes this hack of prophet.

Even Unitarians who deny the Trinity and believe the Spirit is the Father's force or presence would NEVER say the Spirit is the Word of God. Also Psalm 29 in context is not referring back to Genesis, it is referring to a present ongoing reality in the world that YHWH is the eternal God who reigns forever. This is certainly the most desperate, deceptive and worst kind of exegesis I have ever encountered, so much so it makes Osama Abdallah and Nadir Ahmed absolute scholars and that isn't saying much.

Now here we come to genealogies, which is an easy topic to address. I would like to first point out that it is disputed as to whether Mary's genealogy is actually in Luke 3:23, I am inclined to think it's a second line to Joseph, which Eusebius the church historian appears to indicate, as well as New Testament commentator Robert Gundry and others.

I have written on this subject in the following articles:
http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/rabbinic-dilemma-101.html

http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/an-addendum-to-rabbinic-dilemma-101.html

http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/rabbinic-dilemma-101-revisited.html

Even if it was her family tree, it doesn't have to be explicitly written down, It would be a deduction from the text. A text being written doesn't mean you cannot understand what it's saying. Erano says at one point "The religions interpret this writing of Luke that Mary was from the line of David because according to the religions, ”Heli” is Mary’s father and this is the reason her father Heli became the father of Joseph because he is Heli’s son-in-law so therefore since  Heli comes from the line of David then his daughter Mary comes from the line of David. But that is only what the religions say and we can never read in the scriptures that Heli is Mary’s father - thus since it is not written, then it cannot be accepted as truth.".

If we are limited to what is written in the text and cannot imply something in the text, Erano shoots himself in the foot, because the text of Deuteronomy 18:18 doesn't say explicitly that the prophet like Moses comes from the Philippines or any Gentile nation. It is clear that this snake is engaging in double standards. As James White has often said "Inconsistency is a sign of a failed argument".

Also, as stated before, I don't hold to the view that Mary's geneology is in Luke 3:23, I believe it is another line that's connected to Joseph. I have written on this in the articles posted above under the banner of Rabbinic Dilemma 101.

Another point he brings up is the following:
"However since Joseph is from the line of David then we can logically conclude that Jesus is truly not a direct and genetic son of God but only a descendant of David."

At least this man unlike Rabbinic Jews admits Jesus inherited the throne from Joseph; that at least I can commend. However, Christians DO NOT say Jesus is a "genetic" son of God. We believe he is the Son of God from eternity past. Jesus being a Son of David doesn't negate him being the Son of God, that's a false dilemma. Also again the Holy Spirit is not the Word. The Holy Spirit is distinct from the Word.

Even IF Mary's genealogy is never mentioned, if the same angel is good enough to help this false prophet, it's good enough to bury him. Why? Because even if Mary is not from the tribe of David, which is disputed, She still bares the child as from the HOUSE OF DAVID!! Erano even admits that Jesus is the Son of David through Joseph's line. This man is contradicting himself all over the place. You want the evidence that Mary bore the child of David regardless of her genealogy appearing, where it is in the VERY GOSPELS ERANO QUOTES:

"Luke 1:26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”
34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[b] the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”"

Do you see that this man is quoting scripture like a Burger King meal, i'll take this text but I won't take this text. Again, NOT EVERY CHRISTIAN says Luke 3 has Mary's geneology, some do, some don't and I take the position it isn't.

Also, the Holy Spirit allowing Mary to conceive is not described as "God impregnating her". We do not believe the Holy Spirit had sex with Mary, that's vile blasphemy. Then again this so called prophet wouldn't care considering he has already been given to a reprobate mind.

Also, God is not unrighteous for allowing the virgin to conceive at all, so to apply Deuteronomy 22:24 or misapplying it wouldn't work. To point of fact what this deceiver fails to mention is only the Romans at that time could enact a death penalty.

"In the law of God for the people of Israel, if a man sleeps with a woman who was pledged to be married or betrothed (to another man) and they are found out – they will both be stoned to death most especially the man because he violated other man’s wife - this punishment should be done immediately in order to PURGE the evil from among them.
NOW religions teach us that God impregnated Mary and even twist the scriptures to make it appear that Mary is also from the line of David to show us that Jesus is a Son of God but what they did is blasphemy and an insult to the righteousness of God. Why?
Because with their false doctrine of God impregnating a woman named Mary who was already PLEDGED to be married with Joseph they made it appear that God broke his own law and therefore committed an EVIL deed. This makes the Almighty God of the prophets an unrighteous God!
It only means that what the religions have taught all this time regarding the birth of Jesus – about God (the Holy Spirit) impregnating Mary is false, untrue, and a great blasphemy to God.
It also shows that the god that the religions preach is not the God of Moses (who is a righteous God) but a god of evil; a god who they claim impregnated a woman who was pledged to be married!
This is why evil exists today in the world because we followed the teachings of those who were not sent by the God of Moses.  They are the false prophets who use the Bible to teach a different god, a god we have not known!"

I have already covered the lie that Jesus or any person connected in the New Testament taught that the God Christians worship is a different God from the God of Abraham. Considering the angel was in the Land of Israel and the only God in the land was YHWH, Mary could only be talking to an angel sent by YHWH himself. Also, wouldn't YHWH be able protect Mary and Joseph from destruction by revealing the truth of the virgin birth to someone? Who is to say YHWH couldn't do that? It is clear that this nefarious deceiver is guilty of the vilest satanic blasphemies, not us Christians.

What makes this man even more nefarious, is his false accusation of Jesus being put to death for his own sins, Let's continue to expose this servant of Satan.

When Jesus was crucified and flogged, he was not guilty of sin, rather he was accused falsely of sin. Jesus did not receive the punishment that was due in 2 Samuel 7:14-16 at all. In fact the very NT which Erano quotes says he was SINLESS. Even Jesus testifies of this fact. Not even his butchery of Psalm 89 proves that Jesus ever sinned. Just because Psalm 89:28 applies to Jesus, that doesn't mean the apostles were claiming or the Bible is claiming Jesus sinned. Jesus does not fall under the condemnation of 2 Samuel 7:14-16. Jesus himself ALSO SAID he came to GIVE HIS LIFE AS A RANSOM FOR MANY I.E, DIE FOR OUR SINS!!!!

If the word wills, I may respond to some other articles this man has written, but in the mean time, I think this article may be one among many to expose this imposter and apostate.

Jesus was testifying the truth that he is the Son of God. Erano fails to mention that the FATHER IN HEAVEN says Jesus was and is his Son, especially at his baptism and of course he exhorted the disciples to LISTEN to Jesus, not disregard him.

His false claim about Jesus getting his miracles from Satan I may address in the future if the Lord Wills.
Of course the man then arrogantly says:

"Of course, many Christian believers, pastors and theologians will not agree with what is revealed by Maestro Evangelista.  Who are these people to stand against what the prophet like Moses, Maestro Evangelista, reveals about Jesus?  What they know about Jesus came from the lies made by the apostles and not from God. God Himself, (the God who sent Jesus) is the One who had commanded the prophet like Moses (Maestro Evangelista) to reveal the truth about Jesus!
It is therefore futile for any theologian or pastor to stand against what the prophet like Moses speaks about God and about Jesus.  What the prophet like Moses reveals about the Name of God and the real Jesus thru the scriptures came not from his own research (like the said theologians and pastors) BUT FROM GOD.  It is God Himself who revealed it to him and guides him in how to explain it thru the scriptures."

This guy cannot prove he is a prophet like Moses, ONE prophecy in his testimony doesn't prove he is that prophet, it has to be MULTIPLE prophecies as stated before. I have asked his followers to prove he is a prophet from scripture though they kept running to his website which is circular reasoning anyway, because they assume the man is telling the truth.

He then rejects the interpretation that Isaiah 53 is a Messianic prophecy. I will not dispute that it is also talking about Israel, but that doesn't mean it is NOT talking about the Messiah at all. In his debate with Osama Abdallah on Muhammad being in the Bible, Anthony Rogers made a good point about some of the Servant Passages like Isaiah 42 that Israel does double duty. He says this in his first rebuttal period roughly about 54-55 minutes into the video. In Isaiah 53, it can speak of Israel, but can also speak of the Messiah, who I am convinced is Jesus and the NT writers were convinced that Jesus was the ultimate fulfillment of the passage.

I have also made the following point in my response to Yisroel Blumenthal, the author of Contra Brown:
"The NT application of Isaiah 49 wouldn't refute the Messianic application given by Christians. On the contrary, Rabbinic Jews today claim that the Messiah and Israel are found collectively in Isaiah 53, So the same thing would be the case in Isaiah 49. The Messiah is made a light to the nations and so will also those who put their trust in the Messiah. Not to mention the Messiah in Isaiah 53 suffers on behalf of the rightous remnant, as well as the nations who put their trust in him."

Erano makes two points here, he says:
"1. BECAUSE GOD HAS A LAW in Deuteronomy 24:16 that each man is to die for his own sin and to say that God allowed a sinless man to die for the sins of others is to say that God broke His own law.
2. ONLY A TRUE PROPHET CAN EXPLAIN THE WRITING OF ANOTHER PROPHET OF GOD."

Deuteronomy 24:16 I have already covered so I needn't go over that again and the second point doesn't prove that Erano is a true prophet. That burden of proof is on him.

Isaiah 53 is another point that he raises which has already been addressed on my YouTube account. It has also been addressed in the following article here:
http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/refuting-erano-false-prophet-on-isaiah.html

His next gripe is the supposed misquotation by the apostles on Hosea 11:1. In the original context, it is speaking of Israel, but in the Messianic light, it is speaking of Christ. The apostle was simply showing the Messiah's calling was like how Israel was called. He is introducing a parallel. Some have argued that the New Testament utilizes a Jewish hermeneutic called Midrash, which looks not only at the literal meaning of a text, but the possible interpretations, such as Pardes or Peshat, Drash, Remez and Sod. However this is a debatable point, but the point is, Matthew is connecting a parallel between Israel's calling and the Messiah's. Just as Israel was called out, so was the Messiah called out. That's simply the point Matthew is making.
I have written on this point here: http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/taken-out-of-context.html

Now regarding 2 Samuel 7:14. It is often misused to say that Jesus is a sinner. I would argue however that the when he commits iniquity statement is a WHAT IF scenario rather than a will be scenario, so there isn't a problem here at all. Some translations even say "IF HE COMMITS INIQUITY". Furthermore, the author of Hebrews has more than one passage in mind regarding this section, which are Psalm 2:7 and 1 Chronicles 17:13. One explanation offered by the Gills exposition of the entire Bible is this:
"I will be his father, and he shall be my son,.... That is, I will be as kind unto him, and careful of him, as a father of a son; or he shall be, and appear to be my son, by adopting grace, as no doubt Solomon was, notwithstanding all his failings. This is applied to Christ, the antitypical Solomon, who was, in an higher sense, the Son of God, even by natural and eternal generation; see Hebrews 1:5,
if he commit iniquity; which cannot be supposed of Christ; for though he was made sin by imputation, he neither knew nor did any, but may be supposed of his spiritual offspring, whom he represented as an head and surety, as of Solomon, who committed many sins and transgressions:".

That deals with the first argument that people often raise regarding this.

The apostles are then accused of profiteering in the context of the Bible. They were not doing this. The reason they were dealing with the money was for the sake of the Gospel but they were not conning people out of their wages. The money was being used to advance the Gospel, that's the whole reason for it anyway. As for Jesus crying out "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?", That is a quotation from Psalm 22 about the vindication of God's servant David. It is recognized also as Messianic in Nature by Christians because of Jesus' application of it to himself. Furthermore, When he said it, The judgement he bore for our sake was over. There was no complaining at all.

Jesus never used money as a means of gain, The misquotation of Mark 10:17-18 is not saying Jesus was making money of people, He was showing the rich man that his money was his idol. Christ's point was that you must be willing to forsake all to follow him. He is not saying that all sell their possessions, he is demanding people to love him and the Father more than everything in this world. Jesus was not sinning what so ever when telling the rich man to sell his riches, he was pointing out the man was an idolater and had not kept the commandments perfectly.

Riches in and of themselves are not evil, it's loving them more than God which is evil. THe OT and the NT show the advantages and disadvantages of being rich. You can be blessed by God with riches to finance his kingdom. The money used by the apostles to advance the Gospel of the kingdom. Also, Why is it that this man, like the Rabbinic community assume that the Messiah HAS to build the temple?

The subject of the Messiah building the temple I would need to think over.

Erano then tries to say that Christians are supposed to tithe. Incorrect, there is no command in the New Testament to tithe under the New Covenant. Tithing is an Old Covenant law and is not reiterated in the NT. Instead we are to give out of gratitude, Which Paul mentions in 2 Corinthians 9:7
"7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

There is nothing about stealing from the poor in this context whatsoever.

Regarding the subject of the woman who gave her only coin, all Jesus did was illustrate the point that the woman was more righteous than all the rich men with their gifts because they only gave a small portion of what they had, but the woman gave everything she had and thus loved God more than them. The subject of helping the widows was IRRELEVANT to his point to begin with. No sin committed there. Not to mention he sends the disciples out who appoint elders to take care OF WIDOWS, IN THE VERY NT ERANO QUOTES!!!! This shows how disingenuous he is.

There are many works out their dealing with the subject of the contradictions in the accounts of the tomb which address this topic. One example can be found here on the blog of biblegateway: http://www.biblegateway.com/blog/2011/06/examining-a-bible-contradiction-who-discovered-the-empty-tomb/

It's funny how Erano claims the disciples stole the body of Jesus, that's ridiculous. Jesus was DEAD, and rose from the Dead, Mary was clearly in shocked when the one she found out that the gardener was Jesus, she was pleased to see her Rabbi and Teacher was alive. Jesus was not giving an alibi in fear of exposure, the reason he told Mary not to hold on to him was because she was to tell the apostles he was alive and that he was returning to the Father.

The fact Jesus was DEAD, is evident from the very New Testament that Erano butchers and distorts to his own destruction. Read The Gospels in context, what do they all affirm in the biblical texts, they ALL say without exception that he breathed his last, this can be found in Matthew 27:27-56, Mark 15:21-38, Luke 23:26-49, and John 19:16-37. It is evident that this man has no clue what he is on about.

As for the world Xulon, that has already been covered.

As for his abuse of Matthew 28:11-15, Erano says:
"With all the inconsistencies that the gospels speak about Jesus’ resurrection, how can we believe that the apostles were truthful about what they say that Jesus rose up from the dead and that they did not steal Jesus’ body?"

A simple response, the stealing of the bodies is a CLAIM OF THE GUARDS, Furthermore, if the disciples had stolen the body and the guards had been telling the truth, they would not be so willing to die for what they believed. They would never of gone through with their deaths had they willfully knew that they had stolen the body. No person will die for something they know to be a lie.

This I cover in another set of responses to Yisroel Blumenthal:

Once again he objects to the subject of the Psalm 22 applying to Jesus and brings up the Xulon argument which is addressed in the video I have posted in this article. As for the misapplication of Psalm 38, it is not referring to Yeshua at all, it is referring to David begging YHWH for deliverance from sin and his enemies. There is no connection to Jesus. His disciples did abandon him but not because of Christ sinning, but because they didn't want to get caught themselves.

The subject of who rose first has already been covered, but this time Erano tries to create a contradiction between Matthew 27 regarding the people who rose from the dead and 1 Thessalonians 4 where it speaks of the coming of Christ and what will transpire.

The incident in Matthew regarding raising the saints to life was not a final resurrection at the end of days, whereas 1 Thessalonians is speaking of the resurrection of the dead and the rapture of believers, it is a completely different context and it simply means in 1 Thessalonians that the dead are the first to be resurrected and caught up to meet the Lord with those  believers who are still alive following. There is NO CONTRADICTION what so ever and the whole reason for giving money to the apostles was to fund their ministry to spread the Gospel to the nations. 1 Thessalonians was not some false hope Paul was not being presented as a malicious wolf in sheep’s clothing, he is comforting or strengthening their faith as it should actually say.
As for the texts in John 19:28-30, Luke 23:44-49, Mark 15:37-39, There is a simple explanation.

"Luke 23:44-49
44 It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, 45 for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46 Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”[a] When he had said this, he breathed his last.

47 The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.” 48 When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away. 49 But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things."

"Mark 15:37-39
37 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.

38 The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. 39 And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died,[a] he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”"

"John 19:28-30
28 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit."

The passages in question do not mention every detail that is supposed to happen within their context. This objection is answered by 101 Cleared up Contradictions:
"The question being forwarded is what the centurion at the cross said when Yahshua died. The two passages quoted are Mark 15:39 and Luke 23:47. However as has been said before with other apparent contradictions these passages are not contradictory but complementary. Matthew 27:54 and Mark 15:39 agree that the centurion exclaimed that Yahshua, "was the Son of God!" Luke 23:47 however mentions that the centurion also refers to Yahshua as, "a righteous man." Is it so hard to understand that the centurion said both? "

He brings up Job again to try and refute the resurrection but that has already been addressed in this paper. What he says however is this:

" As it is written – “So man lies down and does not rise, Till the heavens are no more, They will not awake. Nor be roused from their sleep.”- This portends that the dead will not rise again because for such thing to happen, the heavens have to be gone first. "

Again, In the Old Testament, there isn't a clear understanding of the afterlife. It's not until the book of Daniel we have a hint of the resurrection in chapter 12, regarding those who raise to everlasting life, or everlasting condemnation.

He appeals to Ezekiel to try and refute the resurrection simply because Job was righteous.

"12 The word of the Lord came to me: 13 “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its people and their animals, 14 even if these three men—Noah, Daniel[a] and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord."

Job was righteous but that doesn't mean he would know everything that would transpire.

Also in Ecclesiastes 3, Solomon was focused on his present life and not on eternal life, not to mention he was not aware of the resurrection of the dead or anything like that for the same reason Job didn't know. Even Rabbinic Jews today, despite their denial of Christ, hold to a resurrection of the dead and believe the Messiah will come and usher in universal harmony. It is clear that the passage in Ecclesiastes would not refute Jews or Christians on the existence of an afterlife, considering Solomon was writing in a time where the resurrection was unknown to them.

The next point raised by Erano is this:

" Why did God give the earth to mankind?
For thus says the Lord,   Who created the heavens,
Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it,
Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain,
Who formed it to be inhabited: “I am the Lord, and there is no other.

Isaiah 45:18 NKJV
As it is written God created the Earth to be inhabited.  God presages the earth to be created for us to live in and NOT THE HEAVENS. We are intended for this world and this world alone.

We have to live our lives to the fullest and make the world a better place for us and for the next generations to enjoy! 
The deception of the apostles about a coming life in heaven is what made man give little importance to his life on earth. The hope for a second life in heaven as promised by the religions is a hoax. However, it is also the fault of man that he allowed himself to be deceived by the religions into believing in an afterlife in heaven. A believer would give up his life on earth because he was hoping for a better life in heaven."

What this ignoramus fails to mention is that in Christianity, those who die in Christ go to heaven and after the final judgment, we will live on the new earth with Christ, there will be a new heaven and earth. Those who die in Christ do go to heaven and live there for a while. It doesn't say man won't live in heaven period, the OT saints ARE in heaven with the Lord.

Jesus is not some false renegade deity that the disciples promoted, he is according to the scriptures, specifically the NT, YHWH in human flesh but he is not the Father in heaven. Thus the curses in Deuteronomy 11 or 28 did not fall on Christians at all. Jesus IS YHWH and Christians by calling on Christ's name, call on the name of YHWH, thus, no violation of the scripture. You cannot extend these curses of the Old Testament to the entire planet; they are specific to the Children of Israel and the Mosaic Law. Disease and sin have always been around since the time of Adam's disobedience.

God can bring judgment on the church because of disobedience, but not necessarily in the sense that you had plagues in the OT. The point is, the disciples are not responsible for a false God being worshipped, nor have their brought disaster on this planet at all. Jesus actually warned about the increase of wars, diseases and other things in the end times, so Erano is simply in error at this point.

Next Erano quotes from Genesis 1:25-27 and of course butchers the text once again. One point he brings up is this:

"Question: In what form are we in the likeness or image of God? 

As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness;

I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.

Psalm 17:15 NKJV
It is in righteousness that we resemble God, not in appearance or physical form."

Not that any Christian claims that that being made in God's image means that God has a human body. It's ridiculous. Furthermore, Though Christians do teach that Jesus is YHWH who took on human flesh, we do not believe he existed as man from the beginning, it's only from the incarnation onwards that Jesus has a physical body, mainly because it had not taken place in the time of Genesis.

As for what food we eat, He claims that fruits and seeds based of Genesis 1:29 are the only things humans may consume. However, What he fails to mention is that in Genesis 9 after the flood which had taken place long after the fall is that the very God on Genesis 1 ALLOWS MAN TO EAT MEAT, I.E ANIMALS!!! That is in the VERY SAME BOOK HE QUOTED!!!

Don't believe me? Read Genesis 9:1-7
"Genesis 9 (New International Version)
9 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. 2 The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. 3 Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.

4 “But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it. 5 And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each human being, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of another human being.

6 “Whoever sheds human blood,
    by humans shall their blood be shed;
for in the image of God
    has God made mankind.

7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.”"

If you read Leviticus 11, Even though that chapter forbids certain meats, but nevertheless, what is eaten at Passover? LAMB!!! THAT'S MEAT FOLKS!!!

In the NT, we are not under kosher, but regardless, even a kosher diet is not a vegetarian one. God allows mankind to eat animal meat, he is not going to condemn us to hell for eating meat. It was not a test from God. Also, the warning in the passage is not warning us of the consequence of eating animals, it is a prohibition against consuming it's blood and killing mankind and the eating of meat is not responsible for depleting our years in Genesis. It was actually GOD who decreased how long man lived for in Genesis 6:3, which occurred before the allowance of meat.

Verses 4-5 is not saying we cannot eat meat and we ignored what God said, it actually says that we cannot consume blood.

While Erano doesn’t believe in hell, nor is he claiming that God will send us to hell, he is still expressing a disapproval of Christians eating meat and claiming our lives are shortened, when point of fact man’s days were already shortened before the flood.

He claims that Peter deceived Jesus in Matthew 16:18-23. Let's actually read it.

"21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.

22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”

23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”"

Jesus is not being deceived by Satan, He is rebuking Peter for trying to halt his mission of dying for our sins. Peter tried to talk Jesus out of what he was doing because Peter didn't understand that was what Jesus needed to do.

Also in his misquotation of Luke 4:5, Erano tries to say that Jesus is being mislead by Satan. Here's the problem, read the context:
"5 The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6 And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. 7 If you worship me, it will all be yours.”

8 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’[c]”"

Jesus actually repudiates the worship of Satan and other Gods after Satan tries to offer him the Kingdom of this world. Jesus REJECTS Satan's offer, IN VERSE 8!!!

As for the name of God, It's YHWH. That's the God Christians worship. Jesus did his miracles in the NAME OF YHWH. We do know what God's name is, thus you cannot claim we don't know the name of God.

Although the Name YHWH doesn't appear in the NT, it is obvious from the context of the NT as a whole that Jesus told us to follow YHWH, and that again would entail worshipping Jesus, since he is YHWH, though he is not the Father. Read Mark 12:29, what does it say?

""The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one."

Who is the Lord in this context? Go back to the OT, it is YHWH. Case closed, Erano has been exposed. The Kingdom that Christians promise to the world is the KINGDOM OF GOD.

Regarding Revelation 2:1-3, Erano claims that the apostles are condemned to hell and were false witnesses. The snake fails to mention that it is Jesus is speaking in the context and he is speaking of those who CLAIM TO BE APOSTLES, not the 12 apostles. Furthermore, the same context Jesus claims to be the Alpha and Omega, a title of YHWH. The way to reconcile this is the Doctrine of the Trinity. If you don't believe me about Revelation 2, check this article out which addresses the issue: http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/the-trinity-is-not-truth.html

As for Revelation 12:9, it is speaking of the devil and the evil angels who sided with him. In fact just reading on from Revelation 12-14, you will find the saints are the ones who are oppressed by the devil and the beast.

As for 2 Samuel 7:14, that is already covered.

Now regarding the following comment by Erano:
"Read the Old Testament books of the Bible, wherein the story of the men of God were written, including their faults: Moses’ disobedience, David’s sin, Solomon’s false worship- they were all recorded. 

The apostles should have written in the same balanced manner about Jesus. 

The apostles should have emphasized in their epistles regarding the coming Helper (that Jesus spoke about) who will be sent by God to testify about him (Jesus).  They should not have given their interpretations of the prophecies that God spoke thru His prophets, since they had no authority from God."

The apostles were balanced in what they said. In fact Jesus even asked the Pharisees "Which of you can accuse me of sin?". The NT Testament does affirm the sinlessness of Jesus Christ. If Jesus was a sinner, then his atonement would not be able to satisfy the wrath of God at all.

Erano raised this point as well:
"Maestro Eraño Evangelista says: If Jesus had successfully fulfilled his mission written in the prophecies; there would be no need for the book of Revelation. 

With Jesus failing to complete his mission, (for he was deceived by Satan; followed Satan and taught its teachings), the book of Revelation had to be written so that the deception of Jesus and his apostles may be brought to light or exposed! 

The apostles and disciples have died long ago and they can no longer be punished for the deception and their fraudulent teachings.  The ones who should now be punished are the religious leaders as they now represent the teachings of the apostles. 

You might ask- If the apostles are liars then who wrote the book of Revelation? 

Is he an apostle? 

Maestro Evangelista reveals to us the true identity of the writer of the Book of Revelation: 

Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. Then he said to me, “See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.”

Revelation 22:8-9 NKJV 

“your brethren the prophets”- The religions assumed that the author of the book was the man they call "John, the Divine", an apostle.  However, the book of Revelation was written by John of Patmos, who was also a prophet of God. 

It cannot be denied now that the apostles are liars."

It is debatable who wrote the book, but you can make a strong case that the John who is writing is John the Apostle, but this is another story. Revelation was not written to expose Jesus. The same book says Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, it is not suggesting that the apostles were wicked reprobate men, that subject has already been covered.

Now, Erano claims that Isaiah 14:9-10 is speaking of the disciples and that people will know the truth from the prophet like Moses. It is not, it is actually speaking of Babylon being judged by God and it is NOT referring to the church at all:
"Isaiah 14 The Lord will have compassion on Jacob;
    once again he will choose Israel
    and will settle them in their own land.
Foreigners will join them
    and unite with the descendants of Jacob.
2 Nations will take them
    and bring them to their own place.
And Israel will take possession of the nations
    and make them male and female servants in the Lord’s land.
They will make captives of their captors
    and rule over their oppressors.

3 On the day the Lord gives you relief from your suffering and turmoil and from the harsh labor forced on you, 4 you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon:

How the oppressor has come to an end!
    How his fury[a] has ended!
5 The Lord has broken the rod of the wicked,
    the scepter of the rulers,
6 which in anger struck down peoples
    with unceasing blows,
and in fury subdued nations
    with relentless aggression.
7 All the lands are at rest and at peace;
    they break into singing.
8 Even the junipers and the cedars of Lebanon
    gloat over you and say,
“Now that you have been laid low,
    no one comes to cut us down.”

9 The realm of the dead below is all astir
    to meet you at your coming;
it rouses the spirits of the departed to greet you—
    all those who were leaders in the world;
it makes them rise from their thrones—
    all those who were kings over the nations.
10 They will all respond,
    they will say to you,
“You also have become weak, as we are;
    you have become like us.”
11 All your pomp has been brought down to the grave,
    along with the noise of your harps;
maggots are spread out beneath you
    and worms cover you.

12 How you have fallen from heaven,
    morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
    you who once laid low the nations!
13 You said in your heart,
    “I will ascend to the heavens;
I will raise my throne
    above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
    on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon.[b]
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
    I will make myself like the Most High.”
15 But you are brought down to the realm of the dead,
    to the depths of the pit.

16 Those who see you stare at you,
    they ponder your fate:
“Is this the man who shook the earth
    and made kingdoms tremble,
17 the man who made the world a wilderness,
    who overthrew its cities
    and would not let his captives go home?”

18 All the kings of the nations lie in state,
    each in his own tomb.
19 But you are cast out of your tomb
    like a rejected branch;
you are covered with the slain,
    with those pierced by the sword,
    those who descend to the stones of the pit.
Like a corpse trampled underfoot,
20     you will not join them in burial,
for you have destroyed your land
    and killed your people.

Let the offspring of the wicked
    never be mentioned again.
21 Prepare a place to slaughter his children
    for the sins of their ancestors;
they are not to rise to inherit the land
    and cover the earth with their cities.

22 “I will rise up against them,”
    declares the Lord Almighty.
“I will wipe out Babylon’s name and survivors,
    her offspring and descendants,”
declares the Lord.
23 “I will turn her into a place for owls
    and into swampland;
I will sweep her with the broom of destruction,”
    declares the Lord Almighty."

Isaiah 14 is also a reference to Satan symbolically, since Jesus in Luke 12 said that he saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning and even second Enoch also makes the claim that this is about Satan.

Also, If Erano wants to whine about Jesus rising from the dead or not, tough, the same book he quotes demonstrates that Jesus rose from the dead.

As for the term Lucifer, I recommend looking at this video by James White on the subject of the KJV in this video called "King James Onlyists Burn the NIV in Ignorance", this deals with the point about Lucifer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5T2aqbyxuA

As for Psalm 110, there is no connection to Isaiah 14 at all. In the initial context, David is the one identified as the Lord YHWH is addressing. In a Messianic Context, The main focus of the Psalm is David identifying the Messiah as his Lord. The Father is speaking to the Son and telling him to sit at his right hand. No connection is made by the NT writers that Jesus is Lucifer in Isaiah 14, in fact Jesus himself states that SATAN, is the one who was thrown out of heaven as stated before.

In Luke 12:49-53 We read the following:
"49 “I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is completed! 51 Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52 From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”"

Erano tries to say the following:
"The religions continue to say that Jesus brought “peace” even when Jesus himself said that he brought “division”! If Jesus really did bring “peace” to this world, we should already have everlasting peace today. Since Jesus said he brought division, the world continues to experience the division in terms of conflict, instability, economic woes, and suffering."

In the actual context of Luke 12:49-53, Jesus is speaking about a metaphorical sword of division within families that will occur if someone chooses to follow him. He says the same thing in Matthew 10:34 but expands on it and is saying in essence if you don't love me more than your family, don't follow me because by doing so you will have opposition.

Here is what he says:
"34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn

“‘a man against his father,
    a daughter against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
36     a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’[c]

37 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it."

It is claimed by Erano that Jesus did the following:
" “Who made the world as a wilderness” -Jesus taught the teachings of Satan by overturning the laws of God (Matthew.22:34-40). The people were deceived to worship a different god, Satan. Because of what Jesus had done, people lived under the curse of God and without God’s blessing."

Let's read the text itself:
"34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[c] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[d] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”".

Jesus didn't overturn the Law, he fulfilled it. He is simply being asked what is the greatest commandments, but what is Jesus referring to? THE TORAH!!! The very passage refutes the claim of Erano yet again.

Once again he claims Jesus sinned and quotes 2 Samuel 7:14 again which I have already refuted him on that. Another point I will address Luke 24:20-21 where Erano claims Jesus had actually failed in his mission. However, he did not quote the context and we can see why:
"19 “What things?” he asked.

“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place. 22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning 23 but didn’t find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. 24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”

25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself."

Rather than fail, Jesus actually managed to carry out his mission, the men didn't understand what the scriptures had been saying. In fact, Jesus is speaking to the men, go back to verse 14 and you'll see Jesus ROSE FROM THE DEAD AS THE SCRIPTURES SAID!!! The men didn't understand and once again Erano once again shoots himself in the foot. Also, Luke 24:44-48 says the following:

"44 He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”

45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”"

Quite contrary to what was said by Erano, Jesus was actually successful, he did not fail.

" After the death of Jesus,  the people of Israel were subjected to more persecutions, killed, and dispersed to various parts of the world instead of being established as a powerful kingdom as in the times of King David and King Solomon. 

Instead of saving his people Israel, the more he made them suffer, oppressed, and let them fall into the hands of Satan since, he (Jesus) worshiped Satan."

Jesus will restore all things in his second coming and he spoke of wars and other things bad increasing before he returns. However, This doesn't justify the persecution of the Jews, and Jesus will judge the Christians who did this to them because they did not carry out his teaching. True Christians WILL NOT KILL JEWS OUT OF ANTI-SEMITIC HATRED!!!

As for Jesus supposedly being the Bright Morning Star in the sense Satan is. This video by James White refutes that lie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5T2aqbyxuA

And this statement here by Erano proves how much of a snake he really is.
"He (Erano) never did any research.  His revelations through the scriptures are the fulfillment of what God told Moses a long time ago: that a prophet “like him” (like Moses) would come and it was this prophet who was given by God the task to reveal and explain the Word of God and the Holy Bible."

Not a chance in hell did this guy come as the prophet like Moses. He then goes on to misquote Luke 18:31-34 when it comes to what he came to do. Just because the apostles didn't understand Jesus at a certain point, doesn't they didn't understand later on, as they did understand AFTER the resurrection of Jesus in Luke 24. Also the very text Erano quotes refutes him on the idea that Jesus stole the body.... again.

His points on Ecclesiastes 3 and Job 14 were raised more than once so I needn't address this again, because it has been refuted.

He then says this:

" Again, the prophet like Moses, Maestro Evangelista will explain the "three days" or "the third day" Jesus talked about; saying, we should only use our wisdom and understanding.
What Jesus meant was that it is not literally "three days," but… 

For a thousand years in Your sight
Are like yesterday when it is past,
And like a watch in the night.

Psalm 90:4 NKJV 

And in another version:

For a thousand years in your sight
are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.
Psalm 90:4 (NIV) 

A thousand years to man is a day to God, is it true? 

But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day 

is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

2 Peter 3:8 (NKJV) 

Jesus was actually saying that the "third day" will be on the third millennia or after 2000 years, which is our present time. The “Son of Man” that Jesus was referring to is the man who will come in his name, the “angel” in Revelation 22:16, the Counselor /Helper in John 14:26 who is the prophet like Moses in Deuteronomy 18:18-19!"

The text in 2 Peter doesn't speak of Jesus three days in the underworld, he is speaking about the Lord's return, He is saying that the Lord isn't slow in keeping his promises at all and is holding off Judgment day long enough for people to repent. Obviously not everyone will repent, but God is giving time.

"8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.[a]

11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.[b] That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells."

Also, the three days that Jesus speaks of are not literal 24 hour periods. Jews don't count in 24 hour periods at all. I have a response to Shadid Lewis on the Three Days and Three Nights that speak in this issue: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nf4qqIvuGAA*). Erano once again then brings up the subject of John 14:26 which has been covered already.

Hosea 6 is then quoted and abused once again. He does another article on Ephraim and Judah which I won't get into this article now. It's referring to the two nations of Israel and God knows what Erano has done to butcher those texts.

Hosea 6 does refer to the healing of the people of Israel if there is genuine repentance on their part. Some such as Matthew Henry have mentioned a foreshadowing of Jesus within this text: http://biblehub.com/hosea/6-2.htm The commentary can be found here.

Hosea 6 doesn't anathematize the apostles at all, it refers to the restoration of Israel when they repent of their wicked ways. YHWH is not condemning Christians to hell in the text as Erano falsely claims. Also, the text in verse 6, it is not a denial of sacrifices period at all, It doesn't suggest that God is against sacrifices in and of themselves nor a denial of them. In fact Samuel said to obey God's voice is better than many sacrifices but this is not a denial of sacrifice.
I have written on the subject of sacrifices in the following articles:

The subject of a "man dying for our sins" has already been addressed. I will be calling on the Name of the True God YHWH, but if does that, I have to reject Erano as a false prophet whom YHWH has NOT sent.

Erano then claims that 1 Kings 8:41-43 speaks of himself. Let's read in context:
"41 “As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your name— 42 for they will hear of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm—when they come and pray toward this temple, 43 then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name."

There isn't a prophet from the Gentiles mentioned, all it is is Solomon asking YHWH to grant a Gentiles request so that all the people come to YHWH and know that the temple has his name in him, it has nothing to do with a Pilipino whose interpretation of the scripture has less coherence than a Final Fantasy plot device. Final Fantasy's plot twists and storylines make much more sense this false prophet's butchery and distortion of the biblical text.

Revelation 3:12 has Jesus relaying his message to John where he writes the name of his God on the city and his people. Though Revelation doesn't explicitly say this, the name is obviously YHWH. Interestingly Erano shoots himself in the foot by quoting Christ's Revelation 22:16 and Revelation 3:12 to validate his ministry. Wait a minute; didn't Erano just spend the entire article trying to say the apostles and Jesus were responsible for deceiving the human race into believing a lie? Wow, He really is inconsistent, And he claims to be a prophet of God? Now prophets can make mistakes and repent but this guy is claiming what he receives is revelation given to him.

Also, Erano earlier claimed the Comforter sent by Jesus was himself, Yet, he claims Jesus was a flat out deceiver who failed in his mission, What is this guy on? Is Jesus a righteous servant, or a nefarious deceiver, Which is it Erano? If Jesus was successful and not a deceiver, you are guilty of bearing false witness against him and stand condemned as a false prophet. If Jesus failed and was in fact a nefarious deceiver, then you are telling me a deceiver told me about you? Then why should I trust his testimony about you? or your own testimony. Now obviously I believe Jesus was not a deceiver or a failure, but that still wouldn't incline me to follow Erano because he contradicts the message of Christ and the OT Prophets.

Jesus DID accomplish the mission he was given, THUS he is worthy of the name Jesus and Immanuel, he did not forfeit the titles or names that were given to him. Again, Is Jesus good enough to prove Erano or Not? Also, The people of Israel ALREADY knew the name of God, YHWH and through Christ some were brought to repentance whereas others were hardened.

It is claimed that by Erano that Jesus is Lucifer, which we established is not the case. Revelation 3:12 is not a "new name given to him" as Erano puts it. Erano also claims:
" Jesus said: The reason for the killings between the opposing religions and nations is that they do not know the real God and his real (Jesus') identity- which is now LUCIFER. 

To prove it: If you ask people how many gods are there; they will answer: there is only one God! They are united or unified in their response. 

When asked about His name, they will give you many names, and they will fight over it. 

It only shows that they don't really know God. Jesus himself reveals that this is one of the reasons for the curse and the fighting in the world. "

Lie, Jesus actually warned us about wars and fighting building up in the last days. Whether Christians refer to God as YHWH or just call him God is IRRELEVANT. This would not prove Erano to be a true prophet at all. Even a false prophet can affirm YHWH's Name or Jesus' Name AND STILL BE UTTERLY CONDEMNED FOR NOT OBEYING HIM!!!

Jesus' new name is NOT Lucifer, he was NOT given a new name, he is talking about putting his God's name ON THE CITY AND BELIEVERS!!! Also, if Erano wants to say: "In what God commanded the prophet John to write about Jesus’ statement in Revelation 22:16, God is making known to us that Jesus is the “morning star” or Lucifer. With this assertion, God makes null and void, ALL the writings of his (Jesus) apostles about his so-called ‘divinity’ and second coming!", then that means Erano CANNOT validate his own prophethood unless he is going to be inconsistent, which of course he will be.

Although he says: "It is true, Jesus even before he was punished, had spoken about a coming “Helper” who will be sent by God to testify about himself ." He then completely changes gear and says the writings of the apostles are made null and void. If the divinity of Christ and the second coming are nullified, then he cannot appeal to the Gospels or the apostles letters to show Jesus to be a deceiver. Erano is a walking talking contradiction.

Erano then claims that Jesus spoke of the comforter in the context of John 5:30-31, No he didn't, read the context:

"19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed. 21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. 22 Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, 23 that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.

24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. 25 Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.

28 “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29 and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned. 30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
Testimonies About Jesus

31 “If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true. 32 There is another who testifies in my favor, and I know that his testimony about me is true.

33 “You have sent to John and he has testified to the truth. 34 Not that I accept human testimony; but I mention it that you may be saved. 35 John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light."

The one who testifies of Jesus in this passage is not the Comforter of John 14 at all. The Father is the one bearing witness of the Son, and WHAT did the Father say about Jesus in Mark 9:7? This is my son, LISTEN TO HIM!!! Not to some crackpot who claims to be a prophet like Moses yet contradicts himself all over the place. Jesus is saying that is witness on his own isn't sufficient but he has the Father's backing, no need for Erano to come.

Erano then claims HE is the branch of Isaiah 11:1-2, which is WRONG, both Jews and Christians despite their differences will acknowledge that this is a passage about the Messiah.
"11 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
    from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—"

The Branch is also a Messianic title, found in Rabbinic Literature and is used of the Messiah. Also the Branch comes from the House of David which obviously Erano doesn't so that disqualifies him.

"3 and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.

He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
    or decide by what he hears with his ears;
4 but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
    with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth;
    with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked."
It is claimed that the apostles are the wicked being slain and exposed, Rubbish, I already pointed out WHO the Branch is, so immediately the apostles are not the ones to be slain here. For that matter since Erano quoted Revelation 22:16 where Jesus says he is the offspring of David, so he cannot come back and say that Jesus or the apostles stand condemned by the passage in Isaiah 11.

As for the wolf lying with the ram reference, that simply refers to the state of the animals being changed, so much so that creatures can co-exist peacefully without devouring once another.

Next we come to Jeremiah 1:4-5. Erano rightly points out it is not Jesus in Jeremiah 1:4-5 and Christians don't claim that. It's not Erano either, Read who YHWH is speaking two:

"1 The words of Jeremiah son of Hilkiah, one of the priests at Anathoth in the territory of Benjamin. 2 The word of the Lord came to him in the thirteenth year of the reign of Josiah son of Amon king of Judah, 3 and through the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, down to the fifth month of the eleventh year of Zedekiah son of Josiah king of Judah, when the people of Jerusalem went into exile.
The Call of Jeremiah

4 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
    before you were born I set you apart;
    I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

6 “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”

7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”"

Jeremiah is subject of the passage in question. Also, not knowing how to speak has NOTHING to do with not knowing the Bible, Jeremiah was called for ministry and didn't know what to say to the people of Israel, thus YHWH would assist him and use Jeremiah as his instrument for his good purpose. Nothing about a prophet from the Philippines at all. The section is a PRESENT event in Jeremiah's life, not something that will happen later.

Isaiah 59:18-21 is the final passage that is misused by Erano. I'll quickly say that Isaiah 11:7-9 is in the end times, not speaking of Erano at all, I already established that, not to mention in that passage the animal's natures are changed, so much so the animals won't even consume meat.

Anyway, let's take a look at Isaiah 59:18-21
"18 According to what they have done,
    so will he repay
wrath to his enemies
    and retribution to his foes;
    he will repay the islands their due.
19 From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord,
    and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory.
For he will come like a pent-up flood
    that the breath of the Lord drives along.[a]

20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion,
    to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,”
declares the Lord.

21 “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the Lord."

There is nothing about a prophet from the Phillipines. It simply refers to people from both the east and the west coming to acknowledge that YHWH is God and there is no other. Also, Paul quotes that passage in verse 20 and applies it to Christ, so there is a Messianic application in the passage. I speak on this passage briefly in my response to Eli Cohen which can be found here: http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/response-to-rabbi-eli-cohen-on-blood.html

Also, Here is an unreasonable criteria that Maestro sets against his critics:
" Any Bible scholar, preacher or religious leader who intends to question Maestro Eraño Martin Evangelista’s Bible revelations in the websites about the true Name of God and the real Jesus based on the scriptures,  that person must first show the whole world his/her authority from God.  

Any person who intends to question Maestro Evangelista and says that he/she was able to know the scripture through personal study or from a university or Bible colleges, automatically admits that he/she is not the one sent by God and therefore a false prophet.   The credentials they possess are not from God and not found in the scriptures."

Having a personal study or going to a university doesn't disqualify you from teaching the Word of God. Of course this depends on the university you go to but that aside, I don't claim to be a prophet. Furthermore, Maestro CANNOT prove himself from the scripture. He may claim that a true prophecy can be found in his testimony, but ONE prophecy that is true DOESN'T validate you. Anyone can claim to be a prophet like Moses. One prophecy in your testimony is not enough to claim to be a prophet like Moses. So I can reject your assertions and question them.

I hope this article has been of some use to you guys and I hope you will not be led astray by this wicked son of Satan and it is one of my prayers that those led astray by Erano, may be set free from his tyrannical scare tactics.

Stay tuned for more articles in the future.

  1. Someone had posted his link under a post on the Pope on facebook today, I had never heard of him thank goodness, but i noticed he had taken the quote from Samuel out of context and applied it to Jesus instead of david, and then left the remainder of the scripture out of his 'website'. That was enough to see, despite that He never mentions the True Name of God anywhere..amazingly on Youtube people are buying into it that are unschooled and have been taken for a loop, as are others in small lands that have followed others that have claimed to be Jesus Himself in the past. Thank you for your write up, And Thank You Lord that I had never even heard of that man in my life and hope to never see it again as long as live.

    1. I am glad to help in writing against Era no, if I don't take time to expose him, who will. As for what Erano says about 2 Samuel 7:14, he fails to inform his audience that it is a what if he sins scenario, not he will sin scenario.. Though the passage applies to Jesus as well as Solomon, that doesn't mean Jesus is guilty of sin, because obviously he is without sin.

      This is something Erano deceptively doesn't point out to his audience.

    3. " i noticed he had taken the quote from Samuel out of context and applied it to Jesus instead of david, "

      You mean that God is speaking in 2 samuel 7:12-14 about David or is He telling David about a coming descendant?

      Besides by saying that Maestro Evangelista never revelaed anything about God's name in the website www.thename.ph makes you an idiot like this author who did not read the articles well before he spoke against it.

      Now just as he made himself an idiot, so did you Mr. Stephen.

  2. You said

    "Though the passage applies to Jesus as well as Solomon, that doesn't mean Jesus is guilty of sin, because obviously he is without sin."

    So since you said it applies to Jesus then it means jesus is under this decree of God

    The question is Was jesus flogged by men?

    I will be his father, and he will be my son. WHEN HE DOES WRONG, I WILL PUNISH HIM WITH A ROD WIELDED BY MEN, WITH FLOGGINGS INFLICTED BY HUMAN HANDS –
    2 Samuel 7:14 NIV

    if jesus who is according to you is under this prophecy and he was flogged by men
    then it follows that the real reason why God had jesus flogged by men is because he committed wrong and not because for our sins as the apostles had written

    It is very obvious that you are the one deceiving humanity here Mr. Author

  3. Not only that, how can we know that your interpretation of what is written in the prophecies is the exact meaning that God wants us to understand about His words when you are not the prophet like Moses whose mouth God had put his words and had sent to speak in His name?

    God also gave a warning in Deut.18:19 that He will call into account all those who will not listen to His words that He commanded His prophet like Moses to speak in His Name, so if you are not the said prophet then what is the assurance that what you speak about is the truth? Can you honestly say that all that you speak about God's words in the prophecy came directly from God and not just out of your personal interpretation or opinion about the scriptures?

    The mere fact that jesus was brutally killed only proves that he is not the prophet like Moses because of what God said in Deut.18:20

    "20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die."

    Now Jesus preaches that he is the literal "Son of God", now if Jesus is the prophet like Moses and what jesus preaches is the real message that God had commanded him to speak then why did God allow him to be killed by men?

    Again let us read what will happen to a prophet who speaks not what God had commanded him to speak-

    "20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die." Deut.18:20

    Since God said that if a so-called prophet who will speak what He had not commanded or if he speaks in the name of other gods, God will forsake that prophet to be put todeath thus, it only means that what Jesus had preached is not what God commanded him to speak about, which is the true reason why he was forsaken by God to be killed!

  4. As for what Erano says about 2 Samuel 7:14, he fails to inform his audience that it is a what if he sins scenario,

    Actually Maestro revealed thru the Bible how Jesus committed so many sins to deserve such punishment of being flogged by men- you just did not read it

    Besides- Jesus was CLEARLY flogged by men-thus what God decreed in 2 sam.7:14 happened to Jesus.

    By saying that there is an "if" is to make God a liar in what He decreed (in 2 sam.7:14) that the descendant of David will be flogged by men when he commits wrong.

    You mean God will have the (chosen)descendant of David who has done no wrong, still be flogged by men?

    God clearly said in Deut.24:16 that only the guilty will be punished for his own sin, thus to make God appear to have Jesus flogged for the sins of others is to make God an unrighteous God and have violated His own decree in deut.24:16.

    Not only that- the question always remain:

    Are you the prophet like Moses whom God mentioned in Deut.18:18-19 that people should only listen to when it comes to His words?

    You cannot say that the prophet in Deut.18:18-19 is Jesus because if he is then God should have not allowed him to be brutally killed- for God will be in conflict with His own word in Deut.18:20

    We are talking about a man's life here so do not easily say that God had him killed or sacrificed for our sins-you are making God an unrighteous God you nutcase!

    That's no blah, blah you idiot, those are God's words that you should fear about - because in Maestro's case, he had proven himself as the prophet like Moses thru His bible revelations about God's name in www.thename.ph. In other words, his message about the name of God proved that he is the real prophet like Moses!

  6. Who are you to say that the Jews already know the name of God?

    God punished them that they may not invoke His name anymore because of His false worship

    Then Jeremiah said to all the people, including the women, "Hear the word of the LORD, all you people of Judah in Egypt. This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You and your wives have shown by your actions what you promised when you said, 'We will certainly carry out the vows we made to burn incense and pour out drink offerings to the Queen of Heaven.' "Go ahead then, do what you promised! Keep your vows!
    Jeremiah 44:24-25 (NIV)

    In this verse, the prophet Jeremiah reveals to us the reason what made God angry with His people. The Jews before, worshipped the "queen of heaven". This is equivalent to the present-day Mary, mother of Jesus, who has the title of "queen of heaven and earth" (given by the religions), and who is still venerated to this day.

    What was God's judgment on them?

    But hear the word of the LORD, all Jews living in Egypt: 'I SWEAR BY MY GREAT NAME,' says the LORD, 'that no one from Judah living anywhere in Egypt will ever again invoke my name or swear, "As surely as the Sovereign LORD lives."
    Jeremiah 44:26 (NIV)

    This means the names YHWH, Elohim, Yah, Yahuah, etc. that they (Jews) ascribe to God is not the true name of God as they were cursed by God, who even swore an oath to Himself that the Jews may no longer invoke or mention His Name. Since they cannot mention God’s name, they no longer have God’s blessing with them.

    When a curse is given by God, it will surely happen!

    “The LORD has sworn, "Surely, as I have planned,
    so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand.”
    Isaiah 14:24 (NIV)

    Thus the name YHWH that you are babbling all this time is not the name of God as God SWORE an OATH to HIMSELF that the Jews may never invoke God's name-thus the more that God will not make it be easily be seen in the scriptures by the jews otherwise He appears as a liar in His oath.

    That is why for us to know the real name of God -we have to listen to the prophet like Moses in deut.18:18-19 as the said prophet will be sent by God to speak about His name.

    Jesus never revealed anything about the name of God, as a matter of fact he even made himself a god in John 10:29-34 and was even forsaken by God to be brutally killed thus what God said in Deut.18:20 applied to him.

    Now with the Bible revelation of Maestro Evangelista about the real name of God in www.thename.ph-he only proved he is truly the prophet like Moses whom God spoke about in Deut.18:18-19 that people should only listen to when it comes to His words about His Name. And since he is not a jew then the more he can speak and reveal the name of God directly to people as he is not under God's punishment in Jer.44:24-26. This means that the man spoken about by God in Deut.18:18-19 whom He will send to speak about His name can never be a jew because of the said curse in Jer.44:25-26

    With you speaking about God and twisting His words in His decree in 2 sam.7:14 about why Jesus will be flogged, makes you the real snake because you imitate how satan twisted God's command (Gen.3:1-4) and you claim that what you speak about God is true when you are not sent by God to begin with.

      Prove yourself first as the prophet like Moses before you can speak about God.

      Keep speaking about God and insist your lies about Him and see how God will apply to your life what He said in Deut.18:19.

  7. How will he be able to deliver his revelation regarding the Word of God?

    Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me,
    “Now, I have put my words in your mouth.
    Jeremiah 1:9 (NIV)

    God fulfilled the revelation He made to Moses in Deuteronomy 18:18-19.That He will put His words in the mouth of His prophet “like Moses”.

    And:

    See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down,
    to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
    Jeremiah 1:10 (NIV)

    "today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms" - Maestro Evangelista has the full authority from God to lead the people out of the religions.

    This is why the leaders of the world should listen to what he speaks about God through the Bible because he is the man whom God had chosen to speak on His behalf and reveal His Name to all!

    “to destroy and overthrow" - Maestro Evangelista is tasked to reveal to the people of the world the Word of God against the teachings of the religions. This proves that the prophet Jeremiah whom God commanded to write this vision is not the prophet (pertained by God in this verse) because Jeremiah was never acknowledged as a prophet to the nations. Jeremiah did not destroy and overthrow any institutions with the message that he spoke in God’s behalf.

    In Maestro Evangelista’s case, we can truly understand that this prophecy about a coming “prophet to the nations" by the prophet Jeremiah speaks about him when the people of the world are cognizant of the distinction between the two sides of the issue, especially the truth that God revealed to Maestro Evangelista in the Bible and the falsehood that the religions taught about the name of God. When we realize that the religions taught us false names of God and made us worship and revere a man punished by God- we will understand why God does not answer our prayers for world peace. The religions will completely be destroyed and their influence on the people will be no more.

    "to build and to plant" –the prophet like Moses will also lead the nations to return to God and establish the teachings and the Commandments which the religions have broken.

    We are all now witnessing the fulfillment of what God said about a coming prophet like Moses in our present time!

    The explanation about Jeremiah 1:4-10 in the articles in www.thename.ph and how it is not Jeremiah is so clear- why have not your read it, you nutcase??

      "1 The words of Jeremiah son of Hilkiah, one of the priests at Anathoth in the territory of Benjamin. 2 The word of the Lord came to him in the thirteenth year of the reign of Josiah son of Amon king of Judah, 3 and through the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, down to the fifth month of the eleventh year of Zedekiah son of Josiah king of Judah, when the people of Jerusalem went into exile.

      The Call of Jeremiah

      4 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

      5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
      before you were born I set you apart;
      I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
      6 “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”

      7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

      9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”

      11 The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you see, JEREMIAH?”"

      It's Jeremiah who is the subject, read the context and don't quote out of context.

    2. Wrong again, was Jeremiah sent to all nations or only to Israel?

      Did Jeremiah destroy anything with the word of God?

      Besides , what Jeremiah had written in chap.1 is a vision- how can you insist that what you speak about is what he really saw in that vision? Are you a prophet of God?

      Delete
    3. The context tells you it's Jeremiah, it is a SPIRITUAL uprooting and calling divine judgement upon them, not a physical uprooting. By your logic your "prophet" doesn't fulfill this at all.

      The context of the passage EVEN SAYS it's Jeremiah whom God has appointed in the context of the vision.

      Delete
    4. Your "Context" is nothing because you are not a prophet of God who was given authority by God to explain what He said in Jeremiah 1:4-10.

      Besides, jeremiah never destroyed anything with the word of God, and neither was he acknowleged by Kings and leaders of the world as a prophet to the nations in his time -he was sent only to Israel.

      What is written in Jeremiah 1:4-10 is a vision of the prophet Jeremiah about the calling of the prophet like Moses whose mouth God will put His words and will send to speak in Name.

      And when he comes and reveals to us the words that God has put into his mouth that we can read written in the Bible about the name of God and the real jesus, who in reality was punished by God-then what will happen to the religions?

      They will all be destroyed!

      And since he is the prophet of God to the nations-he will also proclaim the word of God on how all leaders and kings of nations will end this present day religious division that caused countless wars and that is thru the acknowledgement of the true name of God because when the whole world acknowledges the name of God that God had commanded him to reveal, then as written in Zech.13:9 God will consider us all as his people- we will be one people or one Israel under God.

      When that happens, we can truly say we are One people, One world, who truly worships the One true name of God= Peace and unity.

      The question is when that day comes-when the whole world acknowledges the true name of God that God had Commanded and sent maestro Evangelista to reveal , what will the world think of your cheap articles here Jake Benett?

    5. If context means nothing to you, then you are a waste of time to speak to. Your points have already been addressed in the article.

      There you go again refusing to address my points YET AGAIN.

      Delete
    6. You can only show to us the true meaning of God's word if you are the prophet like Moses IN WHOSE MOUTH GOD HAD PUT HIS WORDS and had SENT to speak in His Name

      No matter what context you have studied if you are not the said prophet whom God said in Deut.18:18-19 that people should listen to, your points should never be addressed nor should be listened to

      Can't you get that inside your skull?

      Stop making the alibi that the said words of God in deut.18:18-19 does not apply to you because in it God never said that we should hear the word of one who has painstakingly studied the Bible, God said that it is HE who will put His words in HIS PROPHET's MOUTH MEANING IT IS HE WHO WILL DIRECTLY PUT HIS WORDS IN HIS PROPHET's mouth on how to explain HIS WORD- so that means whether you like it or not you should prove that you did not study the Bible and that it is God who had directly taught you about His words in the Bible.

      God is the one who revealed His words to former prophets and the one who commanded them to write his words and it follows that HE is ALSO the ONE who will explain to us His words which will be the task of the prophet like Moses because GOD WILL PUT HIS WORDS INTO HIS MOUTH

      The problem is you studied the Bible, therefore God did not put his words in your mouth, it is you who had put your words in what God had said in the scriptures.

      The more you speak the more you challenge GOD's WARNING in Deut.18:18-19

  8. "So I can reject your assertions and question them."

    So do i against your assertions because you cannot prove yourself that you are a real prophet mentioned by God in Deut.18:18-19 who was sent by God to speak about His words. God clearly said that He will punish those who will not listen to His words that his prophet like Moses speaks about His name so i stick to obeying God's word.

    Actually your reasoning is the real problem here because in the end you have to prove that what you speak is not your own opinion only but according to what God wants us to understand about His words which you can only do if you are the prophet like Moses

    What you defend here is the teaching taught by the theologians about God and Jesus but the question is-if what they preach about God-which you represent, is true then why is it that until now the world is under God's curse as written in Deut.11:28 in which God clearly said that such curse will happen if we worship a false god and disobey His commandments

    Do not tell me that this sufferings, calamities and plagues happening in the world are God's blessings.

    With the revelation of Maestro Evangelista that Jesus was forsaken by God because he committed wrong (as based on God's own word in the Bible)we can now realize that people are indeed under God's curse because they revere jesus who in reality was punished by God -therefore revering a false god all this time!

    You cannot say that he is not the prophet like Moses because his whole revelation about the name of God and about why God sent jesus which he did not study nor research about is the proof that he is the prophet like Moses whose mouth God had put His words and sent to speak about His name.

    Whether you like it or not, you cannot run away from proving yourself first as the prophet like Moses before speaking against Maestro Evangelista

    Now prove yourself as the said prophet now.

  9. I cannot fathom how a crackpot you are in citing mark 9:7

    "7 Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”

    You forgot what happened in the following verse:

    When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance and said to Moses, "Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die."
    Exodus 20:18-19 (NIV)

    This is the reaction of the Israelites after hearing God’s voice when He gave Moses His Ten Commandments

    What does thunder and lightning represent?

    He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth. After that comes the sound of his roar; he thunders with his majestic voice. When his voice resounds, he holds nothing back. God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.
    Job 37:3-5 NIV

    It represents the voice of God. When the people of Israel, who just came out of their slavery in Egypt, heard God’s voice – they trembled in fear. From that moment on, God never spoke directly to the people but only to His prophet Moses.

    if God had truly spoken in that event then all who were present should have been dead at that very moment

    If God also spoke to those people about Jesus then they should not have killed Jesus anymore, you mean God's voice is that limited that only those people who were present during that event heard His voice?

    And in the end, Jesus was flogged by men- which when we read what God said in 2 sam.7:14

    14 I WILL BE his father, and he will be my son. WHEN HE DOES WRONG, I WILL PUNISH HIM WITH A ROD WIELDED BY MEN, WITH FLOGGINGS INFLICTED BY HUMAN HANDS.
    We know that Jesus is the continuation of the prophecy after King Solomon as written in Luke 1:31-32 and Matthew 1:1-And Jesus was flogged by men in Matthew 27:25-26.

    There is no denying that Jesus-the descendant of david, was forsaken by God to be put to death because of his own wrongdoing

    How can you say that Jesus is God's beloved Son when that is not consistent with what God said in the prophecy in 2 Sam.7:12-14 as God clearly spoke of a descendant of David and not a LITERAL SON??

    You are making yourself known as the real LIAR now, blogger because of what you have done against what God had said.

    4. Actually we are tune with what God said in Deut.18:18-19 when we chose to listen to Maestro Evangelista who by his revelation of the name of God in the Bible had proved he is the prophet in deut.18:18-19 whom He had sent to speak in His name.

      While you have no tune to begin with as you are not sent by God. That makes your arguments debunked from the very beginning :)

      Continue your tap dance to the tune of your calling from God (?) as an "apologist for the Jews"

  10. Hey this is interesting indeed. When I see the arguments of Angel Lawin and compare to author´s text, I admire how cannot author see that this is now happening in our time and there is no such man as not guilty or sinless because King Salomon said in 1.Kings 8:46 that "When they sin against you--for there is no one who does not sin". King Salomon said that right after he had confirmed in verses 1. Kings 8:41-43 that it would be STRANGER who will come (not from the Jews), so he validated strongly the God´s word to Moses in Deut. 18:18-19. Your explanation about Job 14:9-12 is totally out of context, Job is one of God´s righteous men as said in Ezekiel 14:12-14 NIV and you dare to say Job did not know what he was talking about. I am very taken to hear of you and about your kind respond. You must have known these kind of comments will show up so let us know more what you have in your pocket.

    1. 1 Kings 8:41-43 doesn't speak of your prophet, I have covered that already. I didn't say Job didn't know what he was talking about, I said he wasn't aware of certain details. Being righteous doesnt mean you have knowledge of all things

    2. Deuteronomy 18 refers to the Jews, not to any other ethnic group, thus your prophet is disqualified from being the prophet like Moses.

      The only exception to 1 Kings 8:46 regarding sinful man is Jesus for he knew no sin.

      Your prophet has several exegetical problems that I have highlighted in my materials and that you need to address the arguments.

    3. From among their brothers refers to the ISRAELITES in context, not to Gentiles, be it Arab, European or Philipino. The prophets like Moses would not be Gentiles from the Philippines. The only exceptions would be converts to Judaism, namely Elijah the Tishbite.

    5. You mean this stranger comes also from Jewish people, very strange but fits to your twisting. All the prophets know all the secrets of God, Amos 3:8 "Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets." Jesus did not know all as he said himself. Do you know why? I tell you: he did wrong and choose to follow Satan and was punished as prophesied in 2. Sam. 7:12-14

    6. Deuteronomy 18 and 1 Kings 8:41-43 have no contextual link to each other.
      There isn't a prophet from the Gentiles mentioned, all it is is Solomon asking YHWH to grant a Gentiles request so that all the people come to YHWH and know that the temple has his name in him, it has nothing to do Erano. Deuteronomy 18 talks about the Prophetic office of Israel and it's culmination in Yeshua and it is pertaining to the JEWS, not to GENTILES, except for those like Elijah which I mentioned.

      2 Samuel 7:12-17 has already been addressed. Get a new argument.

    7. That's the problem with you, scum. YOU DO NOT HAVE AUTHORITY TO SPEAK ABOUT GOD"S WORD IN THE FIRST PLACE!

      Can't you get that inside your head??

      The difference between Maestro Evangelista and you is that he did not match those verses in his revelations out of guesswork and research of the Bible-it has been shown to him by God, thus it is God who had put His words in Maestro's mouth and by reading those revelations, it's so clear that maestro had proven himself thru his Bible revelations about the real name of God that he is the prophet like Moses in Deut.18:18-19 whom God strictly said in those verses that we should only listen to when it comes to His words, so that means you have no right to explain and insist your satanic explanation- nor should your deception be listened to.

      God 's word is so clear in 2 Sam.7:14 why jesus will be flogged by men and that is for his own wrongdoing.

      14 I WILL BE his father, and he will be my son. WHEN HE DOES WRONG, I WILL PUNISH HIM WITH A ROD WIELDED BY MEN, WITH FLOGGINGS INFLICTED BY HUMAN HANDS.

      As for the foreigner in 1 Kings 8:41-43, you cannot deny the reality that it has now been fulfilled already through the revelations of a non-jew about the real name of God thru the Bible.

      The real argument for you here is to prove yourself that you are the real prophet like Moses in deut.18:18-19.

      If you are not that prophet then i suggest you shut up or apologize to humanity how you have wronged them by preaching a man, who in reality was punished by God for his wrongdoing.

      If you don't then prepare yourself for a coming reality where your name will be remembered as a deceiver, Jake Benett and not only that, prepare yourself to be punished by God as God said He would do to people like you who did not heed His word in Deut.18:18-19

      The truth is, if you chose not to accept what you have read there, we will not argue with you, it is your right to do so. But the mere fact that you chose to write against those revelations when you are not a prophet of God in Deut.18:18-19 then you have not written it against Maestro, you are going against the God who spoke in Deut.18:18-19 and you also chose to continue to insult humanity's intelligence by insisting that a man who was punished by God is a God!

    9. What God said in Deut.18:18-19 is about whom we should listen to about His word especially about His Name and that commandment of God is always what WE WILL BASH TO YOUR FACE YOU SCUM!

      Who are you to speak about the word of God-when you are not the prophet He spoke about in Deut.18:18-19?

      It is so clear that you are imitating Satan now in what he said to Eve in Gen.3:1-4 that God's commandment is not important.

      Stop making such excuses that we address your points first- first prove yourself if you are the prophet like Moses whom God said that we should LISTEN to about His word, because if you are not then whatever you point here is nothing.

      In the process, you also defy God's word in Deut.18:18-19 because you insist your explanation when you are not the said prophet of God to begin with.

      Continue doing these articles and you are setting yourself up to be called into account by God as He said in Deut.18:19

    10. Your prophet doesn't fall into the criteria of the Prophet like Moses, he is not Jewish, nor a convert to Judaism, therefore he fails the test of being the prophet like Moses, nor does he do miracles like Moses.

      I am asking you to address my points because you dismiss them and whine about me not being a prophet like Moses which I never claimed anyway.

      Furthermore, Using that as an excuse to reject my assertions, DOESN'T REFUTE ME. The onus of proof is on you to DEMONSTRATE I am wrong, not dismiss it and say "You are not the prophet, therefore I needn't listen to you".

      Delete
    11. No that is not an excuse Benett, that is the real word of God in Deut.18;18-19 about whom we should only listen to when it comes to His words.

      To say that we should not use God's word in Deut.18:18-19 against you is like saying that you are above what God said in those verses therefore what you said is truly stupid and that made you wrong from the very beginning.

      The very sign that Maestro Evangelista is the prophet like Moses in Deut.18:18-19 is simple:

      God said in Deut.18:18-19 that He will put His words in His chosen one's mouth and will send him to speak in His name -which means all that the chosen one will reveal about God's name thru the Bible is not out of his personal study but is all what God had put into his mouth.

      How can a man who did not study the Bible able to make such Bible explanations and revelations about the name of God ?

      It only means it is God who revealed such truths to him in the Bible and guided him to explain it through scripture and THAT IS THE MIRACLE THERE YOU IDIOT!

      We can all now witness what God said in deut.18:18-19 being fulfilled in the person of maestro Evangelista, and all the flow of scriptures in those articles in www.thename.ph were what God had put into his mouth to reveal to the whole world the truth about His real Name.

      How can we confirm that the prophet like Moses' sign is not thru the miracles that Moses did before with his rod but thru the word of God?

      Listen! The LORD is calling to the city - and to fear your name is wisdom -
      “Heed the rod and the One who appointed it.
      Micah 6:9 NIV

      “The LORD is calling to the city” - God is now calling to the whole world through His prophet like Moses, Maestro Evangelista as he is God’s spokesperson in our time.

      “fear your name is wisdom” - those people who will be considered wise are those who will accept and acknowledge the true Name of God because they have clearly seen the distinction between the right and wrong teachings about God.

      “Heed the rod and the One who appointed it” - this means that the sign of the prophet like Moses is not through miracles. Moses' miracles are associated with his rod.

      The prophet “like Moses” reveals the Name of God through the scriptures as God had put His words in his mouth and this is why we have to heed the prophet like Moses because it is God who has commanded him to speak about His name.

      Now why should we heed your stupid points here? Are you the prophet in deut.18:18-19 whose mouth God had put His words and sent to speak in His name? :) :)

      By the way -how were you called by God to be his apologist for the jews? And how do you know that it is the God of Moses who called you?

      :) :)

    12. The Lord calling to the City is referring to a city in Israel, NOT the whole world and the rod refers to God's CORRECTION and it must be heeded.

      Again, I DON'T CLAIM TO BE A PROPHET. Don't you dare give me this rubbish of "Oh, you ain't the prophet therefore you have no authority from God".

      The Lord prepared me for the task of reaching out to the Jews, The God of MOSES called me by his grace to do so. It may not have been in words, but certainly he has given me a burden to reach out to the chosen people of God and respond to the arguments of the apologists in Rabbinic Judaism.

      If you want to claim Erano had these so called Revelations, that's your claim and his, but the fact he could make such basic exegetical errors and claim to be a prophet only confirms my suspicions that he speaks garbage.

      Anyway, Don't bother commenting here again, I am not going to waste time with an obstinate individual such as yourself.

    13. You said "The Lord calling to the City is referring to a city in Israel, NOT the whole world and the rod refers to God's CORRECTION and it must be heeded."

      Let us read if that rod only means correction and not the word of God in the prophet's mouth:

      Reading from one of the articles in www.thename.ph:

      There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,
      And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
      Isaiah 11:1 NKJV

      "Rod from the stem of Jesse” - This is King David.

      "root" - Jesus as disclosed in Revelation 22:16.

      “Branch”- This is the Angel/Messenger that will testify about Jesus as written in Revelation 22:16 and also the Helper who bears the Spirit of truth or Holy Spirit which is the word of God (2 Samuel 23:1-2)

      The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
      The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
      The Spirit of counsel and might,
      The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
      Isaiah 11:2 (NKJV)

      "Spirit" - The Word of God(2 Samuel 23:1-2). This is why Jesus said that the ‘Helper” has the spirit of truth or the word of God. The word of truth because he is referring to the BRANCH who is also the prophet like Moses.

      “the fear of the LORD" - As it is written in Proverbs 9:10 - "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."

      Maestro Evangelista will make the people know and understand the True God and His Commandments.

      His delight is in the fear of the Lord,
      And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,
      Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
      But with righteousness He shall judge the poor,
      And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
      He shall strike the earth with the ROD OF HIS MOUTH,
      And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
      Isaiah 11:3-4 (NKJV)

      "the rod of his mouth" - the Word of God that Maestro Evangelista reveals to the people of the world -IT IS IN HIS MOUTH SINCE HE IS THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES SENT TO SPEAK IN GOD"S NAME!

      Therefore you are wrong in saying what is written in Micah 6:9 stands for correction-it speaks about the word of God in the prophet like Moses'
      mouth you idiot!

      That is also why in Micah 6:9 we can read to "fear your name is wisdom" because the prophet will speak about the name of God and that City does not mean the way you think it is.

      That is the difference why you cannot insist your words upon what God said because you are not and never the one He had given authority to speak in His Name.

      “breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.” –with what God had revealed to Maestro in the scriptures, we were able to learn the wickedness of the apostles and the religions in preaching their fallacious teachings about God and Jesus.

      Why wicked? YOU PEOPLE HAD HID THE TRUTH WHY GOD HAD JESUS FLOGGED BY MEN and that is for his OWN WRONGDOING!

      That is why whether you like it or not that word of God in 2 samuel 7:14 why Jesus will be flogged by men is what we will always BASH your skull with.

      Delete
    14. Exegetical errors??

      God said in Deut.18:18-19 that it is HE WHO WILL PUT HIS WORDS IN HIS PROPHET's MOUTH - with what God said that it is He who will teach his prophet on what to say, you still insist that your explanations that came from your own study and from the study of the theologians , are more right about God?

      That is another classic stupid statement you have said Jake Benett

    15. 2 Samuel 7:14, I REFUTED YOU ON THAT, GET ANOTHER ARGUMENT ON THAT!!!

      Isaiah 11 is NOT the same context as Micah 6. Isaiah 11 speaks of the Messianic era and the BRANCH IS THE MESSIAH, not Erano. Two different rods in two different contexts

      Even the Rabbis, despite their rejection of Jesus, recognise the Branch to be a reference to the Messiah. Besides I already cover Isaiah 11 in another article.

  11. It seems that you havent prove that you are the prophet like Moses in Deut 18:18-19, so all the people here should not listen to your bad interpretation and bad language and manner of God's word from the Bible.
    This kind of BAD MANNER only come from wicked people, like you Mr Jake Bennet. What did God said about this?

    Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.
    Daniel 12:10 (NIV)

    None of the wicked will understand-We now know what character you have which is why you possess such weak quality.

    And I will show you why you have that weak quality in interpreting the Bible which you dont have the authority to do so and you are not the prophet like Moses that people have to listen to,

    //Father in heaven said in Mark 9:7 "Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!"" Who is God the Father telling us to listen to?//

    And then people did not die listening to the word of God?
    What is this stupid explanation from a wicked man like Mr. Jake ?
    This shows only that you still havent read all from the site or as God said you are not wise enough and have a weak quality.
    This is what God really said about your comment,

    When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance and said to Moses, "Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die."
    Exodus 20:18-19 (NIV)

    This is the reaction of the Israelites after hearing God’s voice when He gave Moses His Ten Commandments.

    You cannot hear or see God

    Can we see the Face of God?

    But," he said, "you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live."
    Exodus 33:20 (NIV)

    So who is that speaking to 'them'? As you are not the prophet in Deut 18:18-19 who reveal God's real Name, of course you can read it in Maestro site if you are wise enough.

    YOU ARE DEBUNK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Scripture doesn't speak favourably of false prophets, so why should I speak favourably of your prophet?

      Furthermore, you assume that God cannot veil his glory in the context. Yes, you cannot see God in his full glory, and on certain occasions God can make himself known to you. How did the prophets write their book? They heard from God. One case where Isaiah thought he would die but didn't is in Isaiah 6. If you want to argue that you cannot see or hear God, that doesn't bode well for your prophet who
      claims he received revelation.

      Address my points and don't give Mme the excuse "You are not the prophet like Moses therefore we don't have to listen".

      If you or your friends refuse to address my points, then take a hike, because I am not interested in going around in circles, I am basically repeating myself.

      You are debunked.

    4. The problem with you deceiver, is that you did not read what was written in Deut.34

      10 But since then there has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom the Lord knew FACE TO FACE, 11 in all the signs and wonders which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, before Pharaoh, before all his servants, and in all his land, 12 and by all that mighty power and all the great terror which Moses performed in the sight of all Israel.
      Deut.34:10-12 NKJV

      It is so clear that after Moses, God never spoke to any prophet directly but thru visions and dreams (Hosea 12:10) and that is what happened in Isaiah- he did not hear God's voice directly, God communicated to him thru a vision

      1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
      Isaiah 1:1 NKJV

      This is why in the case of the prophet like Moses, maestro Evangelista, God shows him His message thru the Bible since God said in Deut.18:18-19 that He will just put put His words in His prophet's mouth.

      Besides, If it is God, who really spoke in Mark 9:7 that people should listen to His son then why is it that He did not repeat it during the time when His son was being spit upon, flogged and crucified?

      Why didn't He? Because He never spoke in that event in the first place.

      And most importantly, He already made a decree in 2 Sam.7:14 about why Jesus will be flogged.

      12 “When your days are fulfilled and you rest with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be his Father, and he shall be My son. If he commits INIQUITY, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the blows of the sons of men.
      2 Sam.7:12-14 NKJV

      We know that Jesus is the continuation of the prophecy after King Solomon as written in Luke 1:31-32 and Matthew 1:1-

      Reading God's word in 2 sam.7:12-14 God never said that Jesus- is His literal Son or a deity, God clearly speaks about a man -from the line of David whom He will give the title "Son of God" once the task of building a house for His name is accomplished -Title only and not being a deity

      Now, how can jesus be called a son of God when he was flogged by men therefore committing iniquity?

      It simply shows the truth that God did not speak at all during that event and that the apostles lied to humanity in what they have written.

      Whether you like it or not, the proof that you have to show if you truly want to debunk Maestro Evangelista is for you to show if you are the prophet like Moses as written in Deut.18:18-19. That is the point that you should always address because if you can't- then you debunk all your arguments here because you are not the one He said that we should listen to when it comes to His words as He said in Deut.18:18-19.

      By insisting that a man who was forsaken by God to be brutally killed is a Son of God and God-when in reality is only a man punished by God and explaining God's word when you are not even the prophet He spoke about in Deut.18:18-19, You are always so debunked-whether you like it or not.

    5. The point about Son of God have already been addressed, same with the 2 Samuel 7:14 argument you keep raising.

      The Father didn't need to tell the people they were crucifying his Son, most had rejected Jesus so what would have been the point.

      Deuteronomy 18 does and can apply to the prophetic office, but Christians do take into consideration Deuteronomy 34 where it talks about seeing God face to face. Considering Jesus was pros ton theon or face to face with God, how much closer to seeing the Father face to face can you get. Isaiah technically saw the LORD face to face regardless of it being a vision. In the vision he sees the YHWH of Hosts and is terrified and says "I am a man of unclean lips".

      Again, Saying "explaining God's word when you are not even the prophet He spoke about in Deut.18:18-19" DOESN'T REFUTE ME, THAT'S NOT A REBUTTAL.

      ADDRESS my points, not dismiss them. Either address them, or don't bother commenting.

    6. By saying "explaining God's word when you are not even the prophet He spoke about in Deut.18:18-19" DOESN'T REFUTE ME, THAT'S NOT A REBUTTAL."

      :) Kid, that WORD OF GOD in Deut.18;18-19 REFUTES every point you made whether you like it or not.

      How can you say that your explanation of what the living God said in the prophecies, is what we should heed when it is not HIM who had put His words in your mouth as you are not the said prophet in Deut.18:18-19

      The man, Maestro Evangelista, who showed that revelation in 2 sam.7:12-14 about Jesus, has proven himself as the prophet like Moses (in Deut.18:18-19) whose mouth God has put His words thru his revelation of the name of God. Therefore what he (Maestro Evangelista) had revealed about jesus is the pure truth that God wants us to understand about the real Jesus since he (maestro) is the fulfillment of what God said about a coming prophet whom we should only listen to when it comes to His words.

      Here is another funny point you made:

      "The Father didn't need to tell the people they were crucifying his Son, most had rejected Jesus so what would have been the point."

      Do you think that if He had spoken out of the heavens at that moment and said THAT IS MY SON! Would the Jews would still dare to crucify jesus?

      You forgot what happened during his crucifixion

      41 Likewise the chief priests also, mocking with the scribes and elders, said, 42 “He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He is the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him. 43 He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now if He will have Him; for He said, ‘I am the Son of God.’”
      Matthew 27:41-43 NKJV

      With that mockery Jesus is receiving at that moment, God should have showed His power at that moment to save His son-but the problem is He did not because Jesus was never His literal Son nor did He spoke on that event in Mark 9:7 and what happened to Jesus is clearly about what He decreed in 2 samuel 7:14

      14 I WILL BE his father, and he will be my son. WHEN HE DOES WRONG, I WILL PUNISH HIM WITH A ROD WIELDED BY MEN, WITH FLOGGINGS INFLICTED BY HUMAN HANDS.

      With what God had so clearly stated in those words why the descendant of David, jesus, will be flogged by men and the authority of the man, Maestro Evangelista from God as the prophet like Moses to speak about God's words-who are you Jake Benett, to insist what you say is true, when you are not even sent by God to begin with?

      Your so-called authority only comes from this DELUSION that you were called by God to be an apologist for the Jews?? How were you called by God?

      Once again, your point is dismissed, debunked and should only be given harsh comments because of being a part of the deception the apostles and religions have committed against humanity by making them worship a man punished by God for his own wrongdoing and thus led them to disobey God's commandments and live under God's curse all this time (Deut.11:28)

  12. Hey one more point, how do you handle that man mentioned in Revelation 1:3? Only one man can read the Book of Revelation and tell it to others, if they´ll just listen, okay. When you start to search this verse from those interpretations that Ecclesiastes wrote and warned us about in verse 12:12 it is again time to think what book you choose this time. I prefer you just accept it is the same man, Maestro Evangelista in whose mouth God has placed His words. And now you probably say that Ecclesiastes warned us about Donald Duck and Disney World.

    1. 1 The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

      It's a blessing on the person who looks at the book of Revelation and takes it to accepts it. It refers to any Christian who accepts it.

      Now onto the book in Ecclesiastes
      9 Not only was the Teacher wise, but he also imparted knowledge to the people. He pondered and searched out and set in order many proverbs. 10 The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true.

      11 The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails—given by one shepherd.[b] 12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them.

      Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.

      13 Now all has been heard;
      here is the conclusion of the matter:
      Fear God and keep his commandments,
      for this is the duty of all mankind.
      14 For God will bring every deed into judgment,
      including every hidden thing,
      whether it is good or evil.

      The warning not to add here is not talking about the scripture, but actually is an exhortation from Solomon to his son not to add anything to the wisdom passed down to him.

      Hope that answers your points.

  13. Angel, the reason I have changed the comment policy was because I couldn't ban you without making this blog private. Since you have shown you are NOT willing to address what I have to say, Our conversation has ended and your comments WILL NOT be published in future. I will address ONE final comment you made and I will expose your falsehood.

    Already refuted your misuse of Micah 6:9 and it is NOT the same context as Isaiah 11, which refers to THE Messiah, THE Anointed One, Not merely an anointed one.

    Both Jews and Christians recognise that Isaiah 11 is a prophecy of the Messiah Son of David, which DISQUALIFIES Erano.

    And my materials have already dealt with John 14:26, 1 Kings 8:41-43 and Zechariah 13 is covered by a commentary I quoted.

    Deuteronomy 18:18-19 is about the Jewish prophets, including and ending with Jesus and is NOT about Erano whatsovever.

    Bye Bye means, You and I are done.

  15. Revelation 1:3 is talking about one man who reads and others listen, you too. This is about the same man God is sending in 5. Deut. 18:18-19 as Angel Lawin is keeping to tell you that are you that man? It is because God said He would send only one man who has got the Word of God in his mouth and we must wait for this man. Now religions and you are giving own interpretations. Question is now who is the right one to listen at? You keep on saying that you are not that prophet and that means you do not have the words of God in your mouth and not do religions either because it is only one man to have this task, ability and honor. Jesus had his chance to be called "son of God" but he failed because of his wrongs as it is stated in 2.Sam. 7:12-14.

    You are not answering correctly. Ecclesiastes meant the Book of Old Testament by his words. There was no intention to write this so-called New Testament or build any church because the task or mission of Jesus is to reveal the Name of God showing it on the temple built by his forefather King Salomon. Jesus said he did, well what is the name he gave to his people Israel? None! And remember his task was only to tell the name to Jewish people so they could be saved from their sins to God. Jesus failed in his task and even his own people admit it and sentenced him to crucified but Christians do not listen because of the lies of apostles.

    This is not about to refute anybody but to give right information so that all the people of the world could understand the real message of God. This is now happening thru www.thename.ph and you are welcome to join the party. This is not anymore about the old Jerusalem as you know, New Jerusalem is located where the Name of God has been revealed. It is all about Zachariah 14:9. One God and one people here on Earth not heaven. Heaven is God´s abode, earth is made for humans Isaiah 45:18 and it will be Forever Ecclesiastes 1:4. God never promised heaven to us or hell either.

  16. No, Revelation 1:3 is speaking of those who read the letter in general. It's a blessing on the person who looks at the book of Revelation and accepts it. It refers to any Christian who accepts it. John is the one who wrote the letter inspired by the Holy Spirit.

    Read Eccelsiates 12 again, he is telling his son not to add anymore to the wisdom he has already given him. He is NOT talking about the canon of the Bible.

    Zechariah 14:9 is part of the end times, it has not happened yet.

    Isaiah 45:18 doesn't mean that man cannot go to heaven, it actually says:

    "For this is what the Lord says—
    he who created the heavens,
    he is God;
    he who fashioned and made the earth,
    he founded it;
    he did not create it to be empty,
    but formed it to be inhabited—
    he says:
    “I am the Lord,
    and there is no other."

    The passage is simply stating that the only God responsible for existence is YHWH, not anyone else. While it does speak of heaven of God's abode, it doesn't mean man cannot go there.

    Ecclesiates 1:4 is a general statement from Solomon, he is commenting on life having no real meaning or purpose.
    "1 The words of the Teacher,[a] son of David, king in Jerusalem:

    2 “Meaningless! Meaningless!”
    says the Teacher.
    “Utterly meaningless!
    Everything is meaningless.”
    3 What do people gain from all their labors
    at which they toil under the sun?
    4 Generations come and generations go,
    but the earth remains forever.
    5 The sun rises and the sun sets,
    and hurries back to where it rises.
    6 The wind blows to the south
    and turns to the north;
    round and round it goes,
    ever returning on its course.
    7 All streams flow into the sea,
    yet the sea is never full.
    To the place the streams come from,
    there they return again.
    8 All things are wearisome,
    more than one can say.
    The eye never has enough of seeing,
    nor the ear its fill of hearing.
    9 What has been will be again,
    what has been done will be done again;
    there is nothing new under the sun.
    10 Is there anything of which one can say,
    “Look! This is something new”?
    It was here already, long ago;
    it was here before our time.
    11 No one remembers the former generations,
    and even those yet to come
    will not be remembered
    by those who follow them."

    The TANAKH mentions a resurrection of the dead, hinting an afterlife, Read Daniel 12:
    "12 “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. 2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise[a] will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”"

    This is a future prophecy given to Daniel in the TANAKH. Also 2 Samuel 7:12-14 has already been addressed in my previous articles, as well as the objection of "son of God" constantly raised, as well as others.

    The onus of proof is on you to show me that Maestro is a prophet and you are not to dismiss my arguments on the basis that I am not the prophet like Moses, which I never claimed.

    The New Jerusalem comes down from heaven in the end of days, not right now.

  17. You can see now what has happened when all people are giving their own interpretation as you do also. Everyone is telling their own stories and others should listen, is there common sense somewhere? And this is just what Ecclesiastes told about. If Jesus would have told the Name of God to his people Israel we all people of the world would be living under one God and one Name which is going to happen soon as is stated Zechariah 14:9 and we would have had peace for a long time now. We are under the Curse of God because we worship other gods (Allah, Jesus etc.) as command is given to us in Deut. 11:26-28 and this curse is valid until we all people of the world acknowledge the Name of God.

    You underestimate the word of God and what His prophets have said in Old Testament and Book of Revelation. You know only prophets know the secrets of God Amos 3:8. They know ALL secrets, apostles of Jesus knew nothing and Jesus admitted by himself he knows either and said that only God knows. So Jesus is not prophet as we can tell now because he did not know all secrets of God and he was not God because if we hear His voice or see His appearance we will dye. God is in heaven. This suppose to be simple math as long as my English is understandable.

    I was in same stage as all people who belong to religions are and you are too. I loved to twist and do this and that just like you do now without knowing it because I thought messages were from God but if those messages truly where from God then it means I was that prophet mentioned in Deut. 18:18-19 and that is not true. I wrote two books of Jesus and other stuff around, none published and will not be because it is all about Ecclesiastes wrote about, only to make you weary and there are thousands of people who are in that same spot as you are now, thinking big of oneself. Reality is open.

  18. God knew Jesus will not be successful in his mission to tell His Name to people of Israel because Jewish people were unfaithful and deceitful. To me it is easier to understand no matter what topic it is when it is served on personal level and not behind something big and not to touch. God made His statement about descendant of David and the one coming as last one, the last prophet. This prophesy can be read in Isaiah 11 and it is telling us the whole thing up to everlasting peaceful meadows were little child will guide us.

    The Branch From Jesse

    “1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. 2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him-- the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD-- 3 and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears;” Isaiah 11:1-3

    “stump of Jesse” – David
    “shoot” – this is Jesus
    “Branch” – this is Maestro Evangelista

    Branch will have all as said in verse 2, Jesus never gave us understanding and religions have taken away the rest what we had. But now we have got our innate understanding back when Branch is here to give us advice:

    “but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. 5 Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist.” Isaiah 11:4-5
    Where this all leads us is the conclusion of God´s great plan as He foretold it us in The Bible by His Prophets:

    “6 The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling[a] together; and a little child will lead them. 7 The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. 8 The infant will play near the cobra’s den, and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest. 9 They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” Isaiah 11:4-9

    This is not yet to be seen but it is coming. It definitely is not in heaven. This all will happen here on Earth and yes it will happen soon because now we have the technology is needed and word is spreading. You are welcome to join peaceful meadows where all is One under One GOD and under One NAME. That name is told many times in Bible, oh yes it is there it is not a new invention.

    1. The Branch is referring to the Messiah Son of David, not to Erano. The context of the passage is referring to him, it is not referring to the Messiah and Erano collectively.

      Despite the Rabbis denial of Jesus being Messiah, Even they acknowledge that Isaiah 11 is a messianic passage. Furthermore the Branch is a title of the Messiah Son of David in Rabbinic literature.

      Also, the very TANAKH and NT refute the claim that Jesus is a liar as claimed by your prophet. Isaiah 11 speaks of the Messianic era and of course the future restoration of all things.

      The Name of God is YHWH or Yahweh. Also, why would Jesus need to tell them the name of God when Jews already knew it and no Jeremiah 44 and Isaiah 14 do not prove your assertion. I have covered Jeremiah 44 already.

  19. As it is stated in Jer. 44:24-26 God cursed the people of Judah, Israel because of their worshipping other gods (queen of heaven, which is now known as queen of heaven and earth as Maria the mother of Jesus) so that they cannot invoke His name anymore. Now you say you believe in interpretations of these men and say they sure know the Name of God. God confirmed the Curse He gave thru His prophet Amos 8:2. Moses said in Deut. 31:17 that Jewish people will be rejected and in 31:19 he said “evil will befall you in the latter days”, King James. You should not believe in interpretations of Jewish people? Moses and the priests knew the Name and of course the prophets but apostles knew nothing. Same thing is when we look at these religions and their interpretations you should not believe in those because it is their own opinion and invented.

    The Name of God is not YHWH or Yahweh. The real name of God is said in many verses in Old Testament and it is said in www.thename.ph by Maestro Evangelista. Prophesy in Isaiah 11 is in line with other earlier prophesies which already are told many times by Mr. Lawin and Mr. Tobing. Still you insist and give your own interpretations about it. You twist shoot, Jesus and Branch, Maestro ignoring that Jesus had no fear of the LORD because he broke the commandments of God and was then punished brutally. All the prophets of God were saved from their ordeal in Old Testament. You ignore Deut. 24:16 and insist God killed Jesus on cross so that we all could be saved from our sins and when you do that you blame God as He has broken His Own command. The Word of God is always the same as he stated in Numbers 23:19. When you keep these command´s in mind and see there is some verse that does not match with what God said earlier then you know it is not right. This so-called New Testament is full of these contradictions. Saturday is resting day, Sabbath, so no work of any kind in that day (who was first to break it?). We´ll see later…

    1. "15 Then the Lord appeared at the tent in a pillar of cloud, and the cloud stood over the entrance to the tent. 16 And the Lord said to Moses: “You are going to rest with your ancestors, and these people will soon prostitute themselves to the foreign gods of the land they are entering. They will forsake me and break the covenant I made with them. 17 And in that day I will become angry with them and forsake them; I will hide my face from them, and they will be destroyed. Many disasters and calamities will come on them, and in that day they will ask, ‘Have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us?’ 18 And I will certainly hide my face in that day because of all their wickedness in turning to other gods."

      The context here refers to them turning to other God's in the land and God hiding his face from them. This is NOT a permanent one, as Israel can repent and seek his face.

      I don't dismiss everything the Jews say, there are things they utter that are in line with biblical truth, plus there are points they make that do fit in with a New Testament context as well as the TANAKH (Bare in mind they reject the NT however). Beyond that, your dismissal doesn't address my point. The Branch DOES refer to the Messiah, not your prophet.

      Anytime where it says the LORD, the Tetragrammaton, it is actually the Hebrew letters Yud, Hey, Vaav, Hey (YHVH). That's where YHWH cames from, so your statement about the name of God is somewhat redundant.

      In Jeremiah 44:26, that point has ALREADY been addressed: http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/an-examination-of-prophecy-of-good_28.html

      Jesus again was NOT flogged because he sinned. When he was flogged, HE WAS INNOCENT. I have written an article on Isaiah 53 refuting Erano and I go through his objections and address them there.

      and the end of it like a bitter day.
      11 “The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord,
      “when I will send a famine through the land—
      not a famine of food or a thirst for water,
      but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord.
      12 People will stagger from sea to sea
      and wander from north to east,
      searching for the word of the Lord,
      but they will not find it.
      13 “In that day

      “the lovely young women and strong young men
      will faint because of thirst.
      14 Those who swear by the sin of Samaria—
      who say, ‘As surely as your god lives, Dan,’
      or, ‘As surely as the god[b] of Beersheba lives’—
      they will fall, never to rise again.”"

    4. Lastly, Lawin and Tobing didn't address my objections, they tap-danced and continued to bring the arguments from their prophet, which they can't defend exegetically.

    5. Any "new" objections I can safely assume came from their prophet.

  20. You say you are sent by God for Jews. What is your proof as an apologist for the Jews? You are preaching and glorying Jesus if it is really true then why are we suffering God´s curse as it is written in Deut.11:28? It only means what you preach about Jesus is NOT true because we are cursed therefore what you and religions preach only led us to worship a false god, not call on God's true name and obey his commandments.

    The prophets of God tell everything as you know (your answer shows you do not comprehend) and it is not temporarily but permanent and God said to Moses there is one man coming to fulfill prophesies. Understood, one man, question is, are you that man and can you show us your mark from the Bible?

    Answers you give are twisting the word of God again. I know you cannot understand our message because you have swallowed the hook religions gave you. But i wonder the readers if they will not shake you to awake from your slumber and open your eyes and see your own fairy tale about lies after lies. You are not reading given comments like wise man with understanding, you only try to find a way to give your opposite or deceive respond and then clap your hands, oh I am a con artist. We all need our own time to understand so do not be ashamed to admit your blind behavior, we all have been in religions and faced that moment. Just say to God you are sorry about your own interpretation in Answering Judaism-blog and will find the answer from www.thename.ph and the rest goes without my given instructions. Truth makes you feel free not to argue.

    1. Jesus is YHWH God and again, you have not addressed my arguments. You have simply repeated the arguments of your prophet. Accusing me of spiritual blindness doesn't address me at all.

      Furthermore, any seeker of truth will actually see that Erano is a false prophet.

      May God open your eyes.

    2. Also, I forgot to mention this but Jacob Prasch and Michael Brown have ministries to Jews, though recently I have withdrawn support from Brown.

      This got me into reaching out to Jews and dealing with their arguments and God has also given me this burden of addressing their objections and giving the gospel to them.

      I may not of had a prophetic revelation, but I know I am needed, though I didn't think of it at the time, to be a witness to the Jews and bring them into the light of the gospel.

      Also, I need to give a defense for the hope that I have with meekness and gentleness.

      However, this doesn't prove your prophet to be the one in Deuteronomy 18 so don't even go there unless you can show me where Erano is in the Bible. I can assure you the only time Erano would be mentioned is if he is being condemned as false.

  21. Thanks of your open speech. Very kind of you to speak of a burden. Why you are willing to carry a burden now which God already banned? And you are now carrying it again, would you kindly read what you will receive: 33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying , What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD. 34 And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say , The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house. 35 Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one to his brother, What hath the LORD answered ? and, What hath the LORD spoken ? 36 And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God. 37 Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken ? Jeremiah 23:33-37 (King James Version)

    Also Maestro has proven his authority from God many times but you have other thoughts and sing your own songs as those above whom God said He will forsake.

    1. The context is a condemnation of false prophets in the land of Israel and possibly future times. God is not banning an apologist for reaching out to the Jews.

      The burden of proof is on Erano to show he is a prophet, which of course the Bible refutes.

  22. Yes and as we can see God did not mention your name or apologist so you can continue to fooling around. Is that what you are trying to say? What ever God stated is valid; "God is not human, that he should lie,not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?" Numbers 23:19.

    This happened in the land of Israel of course and it speaks of this time and tomorrow also. Word of God is just and it stays the same always. God did sent Jesus for Jewish people only but He never mentioned apostles or religions to come. God said He tells all the secrets to His prophets only, so why Jesus did not know all? He was not a prophet and not God because he admit by himself he did not know all and only God knows and if he was he did not need to ask for information. He was just a man send to his people as prophesied and told here many times.

    You do not realize even this clear warning of God brought to you so you must know on which side you are: "Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand." Daniel 12:10 (NIV) I´ll give you a hint, acknowledging the Name of God is essential to be on 1-3 when the time is and it is soon, read Zechariah 13:9.

    1. Does God mention the NAME of Erano? No, So moot point your made and no I am NOT fooling around thank you. I think this conversation is over, because we are getting no where. Oh and Zechariah 13:9 is not a proof text for your religion.

  23. You are right there is not mention of his name but marks and sings are all over and he is the only who has showed his authority from God thru Holy Bible because God has put His word in his mouth. I want to know your straight opinion on following and how you handle it. Are these disasters continuously happening today God´s curse upon us?

    "If you do not carefully follow all the words of this law, which are written in this book, and do not revere this glorious and awesome name - the LORD your God - the LORD will send fearful plagues on you and your descendants, harsh and prolonged disasters, and severe and lingering illnesses. He will bring upon you all the diseases of Egypt that you dreaded, and they will cling to you. The LORD will also bring on you every kind of sickness and disaster not recorded in this Book of the Law, until you are destroyed." Deuteronomy 28:58-61 (NIV)

    Through His prophet Moses, God Himself has warned that the events and the plagues, (which happened during the time of Moses in Egypt) will happen again. Additionally, virulent viruses and plagues like today’s AIDS, Ebola, SARS, Avian Flu, deadly cancers, Swine Flu, the latest polio-like disease affecting children in California, USA and destructive hurricanes, earthquakes, unusual winter storms (which were not experienced in the time of Moses), are happening in our time.

    These are signs that the world is truly cursed by God because we worship false gods, do not fear God’s True Name, and do not follow His commandments.

    When it says we do not worship the real God, it means that we do not call on (His) God’s real and true Name. Thus God’s curse is upon us. Is this true?

    "Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you,
    on the kingdoms that do not call on your name;" Psalm 79:6 (NIV)

    The foregoing Bible passage, clearly states why God does not hear the prayers and is pouring out His wrath or ANGER to the people of the earth. It is because we do not call on His real and true Name. And you know God gave His warning before in Deut. 11:26-28. This is now reality and how do religions react? They say God is testing them if they´ll truly follow Jesus. Who is right God or religions? And this is not religion or cult this is the message God wants people to understand by His last prophet and start to live their lives without religions. You will be accountable to God and not to Maestro or to us. Bye.

    1. The curses are not the reason why there are wars and famines and diseases, nor is it caused by following Jesus. Jesus actually predicted these things would happen increasingly before his return.

      Furthermore, the curses mentioned in the passages of Deuteronomy are not carried over in the New Covenant, but nevertheless, they serve as a reminder not to anger God lest he subject you to judgement.

      You said earlier "as we can see God did not mention your name or apologist so you can continue to fooling around." as an argument against me. Be consistent and use that against your prophet.

      Also, Any group that deviates from the teachings of the TANAKH and the NT is by a biblical definition, a cult, including your religion.

      As you have said, You will be accountable to God, not to man. Bye.

  25. This is another stupid comment you made:

    "the curses mentioned in the passages of Deuteronomy are not carried over in the New Covenant, but nevertheless, they serve as a reminder not to anger God lest he subject you to judgement"

    Who are you to say that you IDIOT??

    Can't you see with your DUMB TWO EYES HOW SUCH DISASTROUS EVENTS ARE HAPPENING TODAY AND YET YOU SAY SUCH STUPIDITY??

    YOU MEAN GOD HAVE LET SUCH DISASTERS TODAY BECAUSE THIS IS A BLESSING FROM HIM? YOU JUST MADE GOD A LIAR IN WHAT HE DECREED IN DEUT.28:58-61 AND DEUT.11:26-28

    YOU ARE NOW DECEIVING HUMANITY NOW!!

    YOU WILL BE ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD IN WHAT YOU HAVE SAID HERE.

    YOU HAVE NOT REFUTED ANYTHING YOU JUST HID, YOU COWARD, WHAT NEW COVENANT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT WHEN THAT JESUS YOU ARE PREACHING HERE WAS IN REALITY PUNISHED BY GOD FOR HIS OWN WRONGDOING?

    HOW DARE YOU REFUTE GOD'S OWN WORD IN 2 SAM.7:14 THAT THE MESSIAH FROM THE LINE OF DAVID WILL BE FLOGGED BY MEN WHEN HE COMMITS WRONG. AND JESUS THE SON OF DAVID WAS FLOGGED -WHICHJONLY MEANS HE COMMITTED WRONG.

    YOU WILL BE PUNISHED BY GOD IN WHAT YOU HAVE SAID HERE JAKE BENETT.

    WHAT GOD SAID IN DEUT.18:19 WILL HAPPEN TO YOU. IF JESUS HIMSELF WAS PUNISHED BY GOD HOW MUCH YOU WHO COMMITTED SUCH BLASPHEMIES HERE.

      Also, why should I take up your offer about debating you on a group on Facebook, when you refused my offer of a debate on Paltalk?

      You said: "Why debate more on paltalk when your writing and replies here already exposed your lies Mr. benett?"

      So in your own words: Why debate more on Facebook when your writing and replies here already exposed your lies Mr. Lawin?

  26. And why all devastation really happens and what did apostles ask Jesus about in that case you are referring at? Lets see it here:

    Luke 21:5-7 The Destruction of the Temple and Signs of the End Times

    "5 Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Jesus said, 6 “As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.”7 “Teacher,” they asked, “when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?”

    As you can see apostles where pointing to certain building and asking when will it come to it´s end. This building was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts dedicated to God. So it is a place of serving God and you know who own´s those buildings today. Apostles do not ask when this world will be destroyed as religions teach us. Jesus told us to get out of those places and people when the given sings are shown at the same time, it is now. Now it is been revealed to people of the world by Maestro Evangelista.

    We must read the Bible as it is written and now it is time to wake up from our deep slumber of religions. Can you see now?

    2. Jesus IS warning about the end times and he is also speaking about the future judgement on Jerusalem that came about in 70 AD. It is not talking about a religion being knocked down at all. If you actually read the Bible, you would have to accept Jesus AND RENOUNCE Erano.

      Jesus already tells you the temple will be destroyed in the future and the apostles ask WHEN and what are the signs and he goes on to speak about his future return.
