More points to address made by Erano. Enough said.
""What more can David say to you?" – When David speaks with God, he refers to himself in the third person; indirectly, is how David humbles himself in the presence of God. David was a shepherd who became a king because of God. Humility is a sign of great respect.
So, Maestro Evangelista says, when David said "The LORD says to my Lord..." it was David speaking indirectly of himself in the passage, not that David was referring to another, which Jesus claimed was the "son of God," as himself, in the passage.
Let us read again concerning Jesus' claim…
He said to them, "How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit,
calls him 'Lord'? For he says, " 'The Lord said to my Lord:
"Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet." '
Matthew 22:43-44 (NIV)"
I won't dispute that Psalm 110 can refer to David's own lordship, but it is not limited to his own lordship and can refer to Jesus being the Lord whom the Father says to sit at his right hand until his enemies are made a footstool. Again Jesus wasn't making a point about being the Son of God in the passage.
""'The Lord said to my Lord”-It was David himself conversing with God. Jesus was wrong in saying that he is the “lord “mentioned by David."
Says the false prophet whose exegesis has more holes than swiss cheese. It can refer to God speaking to David but it wouldn't detract from speaking about Jesus in the Messianic Application.
"Reading again Psalm 110:1-
The LORD says to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet."
Psalm 110:1 (NIV)
If David was referring to himself in this Psalm then it follows that he is the one whose enemies were put by God under his feet:
This time it will be King David’s son, Solomon who will reveal:
Solomon sent back this message to Hiram:
"You know that because of the wars waged against my father David from all sides,
he could not build a temple for the Name of the LORD his God until the LORD put
his enemies under his feet.
1 Kings 5:2-3 (NIV)
It was David’s enemies that were placed under his feet, not Jesus' feet. In Jesus' case, it was the other way around; he was placed under the feet of his enemies. Finally, the question that remained unanswered for the past 2000 years have been answered! We now know this because God is the one who showed such truths to Teacher Evangelista (in the scriptures) and had sent him to be His prophet like Moses."
The enemies being put under David's feet or anyone's feet is not a reference to Jesus being put under the feet of anyone. Jesus didn't die as a result of his own sins, he had NO sins, as pointed out already in previous articles. Plus Erano being prophesied in Deuteronomy 18 has already been refuted so we needn't go over that again, read the following articles and go to the sections on Deuteronomy 18:
"What kind of events did Jesus bring into the world when he taught his Satanic teachings (overturning God’s laws)?
Learn if it has happened or not.
What misery is mine! I am like one who gathers summer fruit at the gleaning of the vineyard; there is no cluster of grapes to eat, none of the early figs that I crave.
Micah 7:1 (NIV)
This is the economic crisis that the world is experiencing now. There is scarcity of goods and service, jobs, escalating sovereign debts and all the leaders of the world are doing what they can to prevent this crisis from getting worse. Jesus brought these because the institutions who preach his teachings have PLUNDERED HUMANITY.
The faithful have been swept from the land; not one upright person remains.
Everyone lies in wait to shed blood; they hunt each other with nets.
Micah 7:2 (NIV)
All (those we know) who governed well have died either from accidents or from killings. It is also a time where people in high offices discredit each other for the sake of power."
Micah is not talking about Jesus brining desolation upon the world via Satanic teaching, He is speaking of events transpiring in Israel:
"7 What misery is mine!
I am like one who gathers summer fruit
at the gleaning of the vineyard;
there is no cluster of grapes to eat,
none of the early figs that I crave.
2 The faithful have been swept from the land;
not one upright person remains.
Everyone lies in wait to shed blood;
they hunt each other with nets.
3 Both hands are skilled in doing evil;
the ruler demands gifts,
the judge accepts bribes,
the powerful dictate what they desire—
they all conspire together.
4 The best of them is like a brier,
the most upright worse than a thorn hedge.
The day God visits you has come,
the day your watchmen sound the alarm.
Now is the time of your confusion.
5 Do not trust a neighbor;
put no confidence in a friend.
Even with the woman who lies in your embrace
guard the words of your lips.
6 For a son dishonors his father,
a daughter rises up against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
a man’s enemies are the members of his own household.
7 But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord,
I wait for God my Savior;
my God will hear me."
The land is utterly ruined by immorality and Micah is warning the people that if they do not repent of their evil ways, God will hand them over to their evil desires and judge them accordingly. Also the abuse of Luke 4 has been covered elsewhere: http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/the-true-authority-and-true-glory-of.html.
"How did Jesus promote evil in the world?
Let us clarify what God decreed in His law:
You must purge the evil from among you. The rest of the people will hear of this and be afraid, and never again will such an evil thing be done among you. Show no pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
“You must purge the evil from among you. .. “Show no pity” - because the evil person never felt pity for the evil he had committed against his fellow man. That is why we should show no pity to him once judgment and punishment has been handed out. Once this law is applied, people will be afraid of committing such evil deeds ever again.
Did he (Jesus) not know this Commandment?
"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'
Matthew 5:38 (NIV)
He knows about this commandment. What will he teach men about it? Did he uphold the Law?
But I tell you, do not resist an evil person.
If someone strikes you on the right cheek,
turn to him the other also.
Matthew 5:39 (NIV)
He (Jesus) openly defied the Law! He had broken the commandment; went against it and taught it to the people. He taught the people not to resist evil and the oppressors.Thisis another proof of Jesus worshiping Satan as he overturned God’s commandment about punishing evil!
This is one of the reasons why evil is proliferating in this world! Jesus went against God’s teaching and command"
Jesus never overturned the commandments and the abuse of Matthew 5:38-39 has been addressed here: http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/the-true-authority-and-true-glory-of.html.
An important question that arises among Christians is how much of the Torah applies to us and what parts are we expected to keep? Well I direct you to the following papers:
These papers tackle what commandments we are obligated to keep, in light of what Jesus had FULFILLED in the Torah, not abolished, but fulfilled.
"What does the commandment concerning “eye for eye, tooth for tooth” really mean?
The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness,
according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
to the pure you show yourself pure,
but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.
You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.
Psalm 18:24-27 (NIV)
To the faithful you show yourself faithful,-This is the teaching that God wants us to observe in our daily lives, so that we may not be oppressed and exploited. We should do to them what they intend to do to us, so that they may know that we will not tolerate their wrongdoings. This is the righteousness that God wants to be established here on earth. "
The context has David singing his praises to YHWH of preserving him after demonstrating loyalty to him, He is not speaking about what "eye for eye, tooth for tooth" actually means.
"Let us go back to Micah 7:3 to read more of what Jesus brought into the world.
Both hands are skilled in doing evil; the ruler demands gifts, the judge accepts bribes, the powerful dictate what they desire - they all conspire together.
Micah 7:3 (NIV)
It is a time of corruption and the leaders of the institutions that people trust to uphold law and order are the first ones to break it because of their greed for money. Much worse, is that all these powerful people conspire with each other to implement their agenda to dominate and control the lives of the people for their own personal gain. This is now happening in our time.
The best of them is like a brier, the most upright worse than a thorn hedge.
The day God visits you has come, the day your watchmen sound the alarm.
Now is the time of your confusion.
Micah 7:4 (NIV)
“The best of them is like a brier, the most upright worse than a thorn hedge.”-There will be situations when the leaders, that people believed to be the best and upright who can save them from their economic woes and injustice, are even worse than a thorn hedge. Instead of healing,they add more wounds to their people.
“The day God visits you has come, the day your watchmen sound the alarm.” - We can also read here that their evil plans will be for naught as God will not allow it. God will send people who will put an end to it. These are the people who will assist His coming prophet. We are now witnessing it happen in our time!"
The fact that Erano quotes Micah in the first place shoots his thesis that Jesus is responsible for brining evil into the world and I have already pointed out that Micah is calling for the repentance of his people. Jesus told us of the increase of immorality amongst other thing in Matthew 24, Luke 13 and Luke 21 but he is not responsible for the evil that takes place in the world.
"Do not trust a neighbor; put no confidence in a friend. Even with the woman who lies in your embrace guard the words of your lips.
Micah 7:5 (NIV)
It is a time of distrust. What is the key towards understanding thecause of the lawlessness.
For a son dishonors his father, a daughter rises up against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man’s enemies are the members of his own household.
Micah 7:6 (NIV)
Who caused the lawlessness foretold in the prophecy?
“I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is completed! Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 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.”
Luke 12:49-53 (NIV)
“They will be divided, father against son and son against father,” - it was Jesus who caused this division and thus the promoter of evil and lawlessness. Therefore, he truly accepted the offer of Satan and became his offspring or agent in deceiving humanity.
Is there hope for us that God will end the reign of evil and lawlessness caused by Satan and Jesus?
But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord,
I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.
Micah 7:7 (NIV)
There is hope. God will show us the way out of the evil culture such as corruption and injustice that we are now experiencing."
Luke 12:49-53 is covered here: http://answering-judaism.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/how-erano-evangelista-deceived-humanity.html. Boy, reading Erano's articles is tedious. Furthermore, the apostles, DISCIPLES OF JESUS, taught that children should honour and must honour their parents, reiterating one of the moral commands that is carried over into the NT.
"6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— 3 “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”[a]
4 Fathers,[b] do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."
His abuse of Malachi 3 shall be covered in another article. There will be more points to come soon.
