REVELATION 2:9 AND 3:9
THEM WHICH SAY THEY ARE JEWS AND ARE NOT
Revelation 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
First, let's review some of the Judeo-Christian doctrines that are taught regarding these verses.
Of them which say they are Jews - Who profess to be Jews. The idea seems to be that though they were of Jewish extraction, and professed to be Jews, they were not true Jews; they indulged in a bitterness of reproach, and a severity of language, which showed that they had not the spirit of the Jewish religion. -Albert Barnes
Say they are Jews, and are not—Jews by national descent, but not spiritually of "the true circumcision." -Jamieson-Fausset-Brown
And I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not: God also knows the evil speeches of his church’s enemies, whether native Jews, glorying in circumcision and the law, and that they were descended from Abraham; or false Christians, who may be here meant (called Jews by a figure; the Jews being once the only church of God). -Matthew Poole
No doubt the persons meant are real Jews by birth as well as by profession, but are denied to be worthy of the name. -Cambridge
Throughout this book "Jew" is an honourable name for the worshippers of the Christ; "Gentiles," a name of reproach for those who oppose the Christ. -Pulpit
Literally. Not Christians. Actually Jews by birth, but not spiritually. The title is not given them by the Spirit, nor by the seer, but by themselves; and none would use that title except such as were Jews by birth and by religion. -Vincent
There were persons there who professed Judaism, and had a synagogue in the place, and professed to worship the true God; but they had no genuine religion, and they served the devil rather than God. -Adam Clarke
A corrupt sect of Judaizers seems to be referred to. They boasted of their Jewish origin, and magnified the institutions of Judaism, but lacked the spirit of true Jews. -Justin Edward's Family Bible
And, doubtless, were Jews by descent from Abraham, but not in character. They are unnatural sons of their natural father, since they rejected the Messiah whom Abraham foresaw and predicted. -Whedon
You may have been taught one or more of these 'opinions', or you have been told something similar. The main Judeo-Christian teaching is that the Jews are Israel.
Every one of these commentaries and the 'opinions' in them are incorrect, false and deceptive teachings.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Luke 6:39 And He spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
You cannot understand the scriptures without understanding who is who, who the scriptures are for, and who it is that perverts the truth.
The reason why the whole world, the “churches”, and all these 'pastors' are blind and ignorant is because they do not properly study, seek truth, repent and ask for forgiveness for their errors, both ignorant and deliberate, and don't understand who true Israel is.
To keep this study short, we will not fill it up with the explainations of this important foundational information.
If you are caught in the deception that the Jews are Israel, then you need to do some preliminary studying. It's already done, so all you have to do is spend a little time reading and educating yourself with these basics:
Go to the Who's Who menu and immerse yourself with some truth by looking at these papers.
Adam and Eve
The Twelve Tribes
and The Jews, which identifies them from every angle.
If you don't want to spend the time reading any of the above papers and are willing to finish this article, just know this:
The Jews are NOT Israel. The Jews are descendants of Cain and of Esau. They are the seedline of the serpent and enmity in Genesis 3:15 which has a perpetual hatred for the sons of Jacob. Who are the sons of Jacob then? Jacob, who was named Israel, had twelve sons and it is we Anglo-Saxon, Caucasian, European peoples of the white race who are the true Israelites of the scriptures. Undeniable and proven in the above papers and throughout this website. Also know that the KJV perversion is merely a copy of a copy of a copy and has many translational errors, which is why it is important to study the oldest manuscripts possible, as well as with study tools such as concordances, dictionaries, lexicons, etc.
Now, let's proceed with the true meaning of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9.
Revelation 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the First and the Last, which was dead, and is alive;
2:9 I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
2:10 Fear none of those things which you shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be you faithful unto death, and I will give you a crown of life.
2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
Smurna is ointment, used for anointing.
Since Smurna refers to the ointment used for anointing, and only the people of Israel – along with Christ Himself – are the Anointed, and since Philadelphia means brotherly love, it is fully apparent that those who recognize the scope of the covenants and then put to practice that recognition by loving their fellow Israelite brethren, will not be criticized or condemned by Yahshua Christ at the judgment!
Christ mentions the Adversary, the synagogue of Satan, who are those children of Satan who claim to be Jews, and they are not. These are the Canaanite-Edomite tribes who had infiltrated Judaea in the centuries before Christ, they adopted Judaism in name, became circumcised and were left to be known as Jews in the Christian era. These people have actually and literally descended from the tribes of the enemies of Yahweh our God. Those tribes are the Canaanite tribes descended from Cain, and the Edomite tribes descended from Esau.
Therefore it is evident that the “synagogue of Satan” is only mentioned to these two assemblies (Smyrna and Philadelphia) indicates that the adversary would persecute these assemblies above all others, because they observed the racial aspects of the Covenant.
The assembly at Smyrna is poor, but they are wealthy. This means that while they have no earthly riches, they have stored up riches in heaven through their behavior here in this world.
The Ten Days:
The ten days of verse 10 are often interpreted as pointing to the ten persecutions of Christians under the empire. Ten separate edicts against Christians by Roman Empire. These occurred with the following emperors and years: Nero (64 A.D.) , Domitian (c.90-96), Trajan (98-117), Hadrian (117-138), Marcus Aurelius (161-181), Septimus Severus (202-211), Maximus the Thracian (235-251), Decius (249-251), Valerian (257-260), Diocletian (303-305).
SMYRNA (myrrh)(bitterness, suffering, period of martyrdom)
-Period of Roman persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire
-The city of Smyrna was founded by Greeks about 1100 BC on coast of Asia Minor
-AD 26 a temple was built to emperor Tiberius. This time started the worship of the emperor as a God.
All a Christian had to do to escape martyrdom, was toss a pinch of incense on the altar in this temple to the emperor. But that concession was one that no true Christian could make.
-Represents the assembly during a period of intense persecution.
They were praised for standing fast through terrible persecution.
-Constantine publishes edict of toleration, Christians could not be persecuted for their religion in 313 AD.
In 330 AD he made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire.
Revelation 3:7 And to the angel (messenger) of the church (assembly) in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
3:8 I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you hast a little strength, and hast kept My word, and hast not denied My name.
An open door invites the ability to read and understand. Put yourself in position to be led to that door. Obey My Commandments. The Key.
3:9 Behold, I will make them (children of Cain/Esau) of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews (Judah), and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you (children of Jacob).
3:10 Because you hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
Isaiah 24:17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.
2Peter 2:9 The Prince knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you hast, that no man take your crown (reward).
3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from My God: and I will write upon him My new name.
3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches (assemblies).
Philadelphia means brotherly love, and this assembly was not criticized by Yahweh, which is certainly why this assembly was chosen for this message, for the meaning of its name, just as Smyrna was chosen for a similar message.
That is also the significance of the Key of David. In order to find where the key fits, one must know the door it unlocks. Yahshua said in John Chapter 10 that “1 Truly, truly I say to you, he not entering through the door into the pen of the sheep, but going up from another place, that man is a thief and a robber. 2 But he entering through the door is the shepherd of the sheep.” So we see that the Key of David opens the door to the sheepfold the right way, and anyone else who comes in, who does not belong to the Shepherd, is a thief and a robber.
PHILADELPHIA (brotherly love) Time period 1550-1850 AD
Greek for: philos (love) - adelphos (brother, from the womb, same race, peoples, Anglo-Saxon)
This period covers the expansion of Protestantism in the Israelite Nations (Europe/USA).
-The city was called “little Athens”, because of its paganism and many pagan temples. But Yahweh said those that overcometh He will make a pillar in the temple of El (God).
The ancient city of Philadelphia was founded by king Attalus the 2nd of Pergamos at a natural trade route.
-2 of the assemblies not criticized: Smyrna and Philadelphia
-Time period when the Jews, and their usury, were kept in check by the papacy. For those who are not aware, the Jews run the world today through their banking, commerce and usury. They own all the banks, polititians, courts, government agencies, corporations, media, medical mafia, educational institutions, everything. Including your understanding of the bible and God. It's time to wake up and smell the deception!
Now both these 'church ages', Smyrna and Philadelphia, were strong in their moral conviction and allegiance (faith). Smyrna for their allegiance to Christ and the truth during intense persecution during a very pagan Roman Empire. Philadelphia for their allegiance and obedience during the time of Reformation and expansion of our people from Europe into America. America was the regathering place of the tribes of Jacob, as prophesied. See 'America' in menu. America means My People, plentious land. Britain means Covenant Man.
The Jews were at the time mostly in the Khazar Empire after they were kicked out of the Roman Empire. The Jews were kicked out of many countries over 109 times because of their satanic ways. The Jews always followed we true Israelites around wherever we go. They infiltrate, pervert, and destroy our laws, society and people. By fooling us into believing that they are Israelites, they have led our people astray from Yahweh and the truth. Now our “churches” teach their satanic Judaism in the place of true Christianity just like they did in the time of Christ. Judeo-Christianity is NOT Christianity.
The correct translation of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 is as follows:
Revelation 2:9 I know your works, and pressure (tribulation), and poverty – yet you are rich – and the blasphemy of those who say they are Ioudaios and are not, but are a congregation of Satan.
Revelation 3:9 “See, I am giving up those of the congregation of Satan, who say they are Ioudaios and are not, but lie. See, I am making them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
Who is Ioudaios?
G2453 Ioudaios – belonging to Judah (as respects to birth, origin, heritage).
Related words are:
G2448 Iouda – Judah = those who praise Yah. The fourth son of Jacob. The tribe that were the offspring of Judah. The region occupied by the tribe.
G2455 Ioudas – Judah, son of Jacob.
It must also be understood that the territory of Judah was the southern kingdom, which Jerusalem was capitol. The house of Judah consisted of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi. The northern house of Israel consisted of the other ten tribes (sons) of Jacob. After Solomon's great sins of idolatry and race-mixing the kingdom was split into two houses, Israel and Judah. Just before the time of Christ, the lands of Judah and the lands of Esau (Idumea) became together known as Judaea. At this point the land was inhabited by Israelites of the land of Judah and Edomites of the land of Idumea. This is where a lot of the confusion comes from. Just like in a once white Christian America, we now have a multi-racial, multi-cultural, multi-god nation of every race and belief. So a Judaean was not necessarily an Israelite of the house of Judah. Just like a Mexican, Asian, Black, or Jew is not a white Christian Israelite.
Idumea is H123 edom. Descendants of Esau. Land of Edom. (Isa 34:5-6; Eze 35:15, 36:5)
Esau was Jacob's brother. Esau married into the Cain seedline.
Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
“Edom is in modern Jewry.” —The Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Vol.5, p.41
"Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew." (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3)
If you read in Who's Who menu 'Pharisees' you will see that the Edomite Jews infiltrated the Israelite priesthood and perverted the laws of Moses into their own 'traditions of men' which is Judaism and today's Judeo-Christianity. When you understand this, then you will understand why the Jews claim to be Israel.
1943 Jewish Encyclopedia (pg 474)
The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without a break, through all the centuries, from the Pharisees.
Their leading ideas and methods found expression in a literature of enormous extent, of which a very great deal is still in existence. The Talmud is the largest and most important single member of that literature.
Why do they do this?
To pervert, defile and corrupt everything of truth. They hate Christ, they hate Christians, they hate true Israel. They hate the seed of Adam.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Their purpose is to lead us away from our history, heritage, inheritance, Way, and God.
It matters Who and what we believe in.
In the Apocryphal literature of the book of Susanna, which is where we meet a young Daniel, we see another example of Jews pretending to be Judahites and are not.
Susanna was a righteous Israelite who was blackmailed by Jews that lusted after her. When she refused to lie with them, they bore false witness against her and deceived the elders and people into a death sentence for her. Then Yahweh riased up the holy spirit of a young Daniel who cross examined these Jews and uncovered their deception.
Susanna 1:48 So he standing in the midst of them said, Are you such fools, you sons of Israel, that without examination or knowledge of the truth you have condemned a daughter of Israel?
49 Return again to the place of judgment: for they have borne false witness against her.
50 Wherefore all the people turned again in haste, and the elders said unto him, Come, sit down among us, and shew it us, seeing God hath given you the honour of an elder.
51 Then said Daniel unto them, Put these two aside one far from another, and I will examine them.
52 So when they were put asunder one from another, he called one of them, and said unto him, O you that art waxen old in wickedness, now your sins which you hast committed aforetime are come to light.
53 For you hast pronounced false judgment and hast condemned the innocent and hast let the guilty go free; albeit Yahweh saith, The innocent and righteous shalt you not slay.
54 Now then, if you hast seen her, tell me, Under what tree sawest you them companying together? Who answered, Under a mastick tree.
55 And Daniel said, Very well; you hast lied against your own head; for even now the angel of God hath received the sentence of God to cut you in two.
56 So he put him aside, and commanded to bring the other, and said unto him, O you seed of Canaan (Canaanite Jew), and not of Judah, beauty hath deceived you, and lust hath perverted your heart.
57 Thus have you dealt with the daughters of Israel, and they for fear companied with you: but the daughter of Judah would not abide your wickedness.
58 Now therefore tell me, Under what tree didst you take them companying together? Who answered, Under an holm tree.
59 Then said Daniel unto him, Well; you hast also lied against your own head: for the angel of God waiteth with the sword to cut you in two, that he may destroy you.
The Jews are impostors, deceivers, pretenders, and the counterfeit. Everything they are, do and teach is the opposite of True Israel.
The Jews are NOT Israel, sons of Jacob, Judahites, Judah, Ioudaios, Ioudas, or Iouda.
The Jews are Canaanites, Edomites, Ashkenazim, Sephardim, Communists, Zionists, and the serpent seedline of Satan.
So you can see how the whole world, save the elect remnant, has been fooled into believing the Jews are God's people. It is the Jew that claims to be Israel, and it is the apostate “churches” that claim the Jews are Israel. But careful examination of scripture reveals that the Jew is the synagogue of their father Satan.
