Mark 2 - Levi/Matthew
Levi Had a House
“And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him. And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.”
Mark 2:14-15 KJV
“And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me. And he left all, rose up, and followed him. And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.”
Luke 5:27-29 KJV
“And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him. And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.”
Matthew 9:9-10 KJV
Happened After Palsy Miracle
“But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.”
Matthew 9:6 KJV
“But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)”
Mark 2:10 KJV
“But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.”
Luke 5:24 KJV
Publicans Were Not Allowed Near Temple or Synagogue
“The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.”
Luke 18:11 KJV
Capernaum a Small Area
“And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.”
Matthew 8:14 KJV
“And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.”
Mark 1:29-30 KJV
“And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.”
Luke 4:38 KJV
Matthew Was Humble
Matthew had the experience with handling money so why wasn’t he the treasurer?
“This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.”
John 12:6 KJV
“For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.”
John 13:29 KJV
“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
Luke 19:10 KJV
If you read Luke 9:62 in its entire context, it speaks of people who said that they would follow Jesus only after they took care of some personal matters first (Luke 9:59-61). Jesus said that if you're to be a part of His ministry you must look ahead and not dwell upon the matters of this world. This is what Matthew did in Matthew 9:9-10. Jesus wants us to seek Him first and then all other things shall be taken care of (Matthew 6:33).
Judas Not Iscariot (John 14 - Part Two)
Jesus Points to the Father, Holy Spirit points to Jesus
“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:”
John 15:26 KJV
Judas, Not Iscariot
“Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?”
John 14:22 KJV
“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”
Malachi 4:2 KJV
“Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.”
Daniel 10:12 KJV
“And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
Luke 17:20-21 KJV
“Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;”
Matthew 10:3 KJV
“And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,”
Mark 3:18 KJV
“Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.”
Luke 6:15-16 KJV
“And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.”
Acts 1:13 KJV
“And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at..
We Created Demand for Abortion by Pushing Sex Ed on Kids’
Carol Everet former abortion provider running four abortion clinics explains how and why they went into the schools to teach sex education.
Sex Education Sells Abortions. You have to break down their natural modesty. You have to become the kids expert in their lives and separate them from their parents and their values. So how do you do this?
Former Abortion Clinic Owner: ‘We Created Demand for Abortion by Pushing Sex Ed on Kids’ 06.12.14
“How do you sell an abortion? In the US it’s very simple: You do it through sex education,” former abortion clinic owner Carol Everett told participants at the Rose Dinner following the National March for Life on Thursday in Ottawa.
Everett, who ran a chain of four abortion clinics in Texas from 1977-1983 — where an estimated 35,000 unborn children were aborted before her dramatic conversion and departure from the industry — told about 430 participants at the dinner that she had a goal of becoming a millionaire by selling abortions to teenage girls.
“We had a goal of 3-5 abortions from every girl between the ages of 13 and 18, because we all work on a straight commission inside the abortion industry,” she said. With every customer, Everett became a little richer.
But in order to reach her financial goal, Everett said she first had to create a “market for abortions.” That meant convincing young people from the earliest age possible to see sexuality in an entirely different way than previous generations.
“We started in kindergarten. In kindergarten, you put the children in a circle and you go around the room and you ask them all the same question: ‘What do your parents call your private parts?’”
“You know and I know that every family in this room has a different name for the private parts. So by the time you reach the third or fourth child it is clear to those children that parents simply do not know what they have. But we did. We said: ‘Boys this is what you ha..
Polyamory According to the King James Bible
On October 27, 2019 CBS News normalized polyamory similarly the way they have normalized boy drag queens on ABC’s Good Morning America.
It's estimated that 4% to 5% of people living in the U.S. are currently participating in what's known as consensual or ethical non-monogamy, a practice in which partners maintain more than one sexual or romantic relationship with each others' knowledge and consent. For comparison, that means non-monogamy is about as prevalent as the number of Americans who identify as LGBTQ, which is estimated to be about 4.5% of the American population.
Let me cut to the chase. This is SIN! Now that society has let the cat out of the bag with Sodomite marriage, now anything goes! But Jesus always believed that marriage was between one man and one woman:
“And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,”
Matthew 19:4 KJV
“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.”
Mark 10:6 KJV
Jesus quotes Genesis 1:27 KJV:
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
God didn’t create male and male or even male and two females, he created one male and one female for marriage for life. Anything else is outside the perfect will of God.
Let me give you examples of where bigamy or polygamy or any other relationship outside the marriage of a man or woman is sin.
Cain’s Descendants Started Polygamy:
“And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.”
Genesis 4:19 KJV
Never mind the fact that in the New Testament Cain is called that “wicked one:”
“Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.”
1 John 3:12 KJV
Pretty much all of Cain’s offspring were wicked because they were all killed in the flood. Only Seth’s line continued.
Abraham had a woman outside of his marriage:
“And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.”
Genesis 16:4 KJV
What?!?! You mean two women sharing a man can’t get along? Let’s look at Abraham’s grandson Jacob:
“And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.”
Genesis 29:30 KJV
And throughout the rest of the history of Leah and Rachel there’s competition.
In the book of Judges Gilead had a son by a woman outside of his marriage:
“And Gilead's wife bare him sons; and his wife's sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father's house; for thou art the son of a strange woman.”
Judges 11:2 KJV
In 1 Samuel a priest had two wives and one wife vexed the other:
“And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the Lord had shut up her womb.”
1 Samuel 1:6 KJV
Now King David Lost Four Sons Because of His Polyamorous Relationship:
“Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.”
2 Samuel 12:10 KJV
Solomon Had Problems with Multiple Wives:
“For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.”
1 Kings 11:4 KJV
Arphaxad According to the King James Bible (Genesis 11 - Part Two)
Ashtoreth aka Astarte aka Venus aka Aphrodite
“For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.”
1 Kings 11:5 KJV
Ashtoreth aka Astarte aka Asherah aka Anat aka Queen of Heaven aka Inanna aka Venus aka Aphrodite (star enclosed in a circle). It’s the second goddess chanted behind Isis in the Wiccan (pagan witchcraft) chant.
Ashtoreth worshipped today as much as 3,000 years ago. Fertility god.
Milcom aka Molech aka Cronus aka Saturn associated with child sacrifice. This would be abortion today.
Chemosh possibly was also Molech or possibly the Philistine god Dagon since he was also known as a fish god.
Not Marrying Other Nations Was Not About Race
“But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;”
1 Kings 11:1 KJV
Ruth was a Moabite. Rehab was of Jericho.
“But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:”
Exodus 20:10 KJV
Ashdod was a Philistine City
“In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab: And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people. And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves. Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin. Shall we then hearken unto yo..
