Only eye-witness testimony is acceptable here. We are eye-witnesses, said Peter in, 2 Peter 1:16. (I am) a witness of the sufferings of Christ, 1 Peter 5;1, I am an eye-witness, said Luke in Luke 1:2. That which we have seen and heard, which we have seen with our eyes and our hands have handled of the Word of Life. That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you. John was an eye-witness 1 John 1;1-3.
The Holy Bible is the only record of true facts about Mary the mother of Jesus. Marys name appears only 19 times in the entire New Testament. In the Gospel of Matthew-5 times. In the Gospel of Mark-1 time. In Luke-12 times. John the apostle wrote five books of the New Testament. Marys name does not appear even once in any of the apostles writings, all of which were inspired by the Spirit of Christ.
The Book of Acts records Marys name only once. (Acts 1:12-14). Her mission was completed after she raised her child Jesus to be a grown man. Jesus told her so at the beginning of his public ministry in John 2:1-4 where he said, Woman, what have I to do with thee. Marys care ended when God in the flesh began his manifestation. After Acts chapter one, about 33 A.D, Mary disappears completely from history and from the Bible record. All records of Mary after that period are pure fiction, pagan fables.
MARYS FIRST DENIAL OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH!
We skip ahead to the time when Mary, great with child, and Joseph traveled about 90 miles to Bethlehem to register and pay the Roman tax. They registered and listed their names and the date of their marriage. But Mary delivered her child while still in Bethlehem so she and Joseph had to register their newborn and pay a tax. They registered him as, Jesus, the son of Joseph and Mary. How can we be sure? Because of the genealogy charts of Israel which began with Abraham. Those charts were like each persons guarantee of heaven, so they were kept with meticulous care in every detail. The land of Israel was divided according to the different tribes as recorded in those charts.
The priesthood and all the details of Israels social and religious life and duties were based on the information contained in those charts. Those family-tree charts proved that, at birth, Jesus was registered as the son of Joseph and Mary. When Luke, (3:23), recorded the genealogy of Jesus he used the words, "And Jesus... being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph...". Luke knew the genealogy charts were incorrect. All Israel believed that Jesus was the son of Joseph for his mother said so at the registration and every day for thirty years to the entire population of the city of Nazareth.
To register Jesus as the son of Joseph was an outright denial by both Mary and Joseph of the virgin birth. But the record showed the date of their marriage as being only about three to four months before the birth at Bethlehem which had just taken place. This meant that Jesus was conceived from five to six months before wedlock. How true. That meant that Jesus was viewed by the priests, and by all Israel as a bastard making him ineligible to enter the congregation of the righteous for ten generations and blocked him from taking his Bar Mitzvah which every Jewish boy was required to participate in at the age of twelve. But remember that to be Israels sin sacrifice, Jesus had to fulfill every detail of the law. This meant he had to pass the Bar Mitzvah.
About 31 years later, the chief priests and scribes, who were the keepers of all family histories, shouted publicly to Jesus and the crowd, "We be not born of fornication, we have one father, even God". John 8:41. The genealogy charts had spoken. Legally, Jesus was an outcast unfit to even sit in the congregation of Israel much less teach any one about the Law of God.
Another testimony that confirms that Jesus was registered at birth as the son of Joseph, is recorded in John 1:45. When "Philip findeth Nathanael, he saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
Marys second denial of the virgin birth lasted for thirty years in the village of Nazareth. Luke 4:22, records that when Jesus began his public ministry and returned to Nazareth where he had lived for thirty years, his former neighbors all said, "Is not this Joseph's son?" And again in Matthew 13:54,55, the crowd said of Jesus, "Is not this the carpenter's son?" Mary had presented Jesus as the son of her husband, Joseph for a period of over thirty years. Mary negated any impact or witness her supernatural impregnation and virgin birth might have had upon the nation of Israel and the rest of the world for all time. Marys repeated denials still evoke unbelief in the virgin birth and hence Christs deity among multitudes of people today especially Muslims.
But Marys third denial of Jesus true parentage is the most shameless. At the age of 12, Jesus went with the family to Jerusalem for the Passover. When the festivities were over Mary and Joseph started the long walk back to Nazareth. However, after a days journey toward home, when Joseph and Mary saw that Jesus was not in their company, they returned to the city and searched for three days before finding him. The very Glory Cloud which hovered over the golden mercy seat in the Temple was the same Glory Cloud that had overshadowed Mary only twelve years earlier and supernaturally impregnated her with the baby Jesus. Mary, broke the law of the Lord by going directly into the Temple among the priests in session and rebuked Jesus saying, "Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? Behold thy father (Joseph) and I have sought thee sorrowing." (Luke 2:48). This is Marys third denial of the virgin birth. She had interrupted Jesus, while taking his Bar Mitzvah.
But Jesus gently rebuked her in return, using her own words, Didnt you know I must be about my Fathers business. His Fathers business was clearly stated in the Law. Mary knew the Glory Cloud or Holy Ghost presence was the Father of Jesus, but standing before the Priests of the Lord and in the very Temple of the Lord God, Father of the Lord Jesus, she informs the priests and Jesus, and all the world for all time to come, through the Book of Luke, that the man standing beside her, who had searched for Jesus with her, Joseph, was the father of her baby, Jesus. Mary said, THY father,(meaning Joseph) but Jesus said, My Father (meaning the Holy Ghost) so that the priests listening never caught the true meaning of what was being said in their presence. Jesus, by innuendo confessed Jehovah as his Father, thus no doubt stinging Marys conscience.
It was every Jewish fathers business and indeed his great pride and duty under the Law to present his son for the Bar Mitzvah. Bar meant son and Mitzvah meant the Law of Jehovah. After successfully completing the Bar Mitzvah the young man would officially become, A Son of the Law. But Jesus declared that he came to fulfill the law. To be the sin offering for Israel and all of mankind he had to observe every detail of the Law blamelessly. So Jesus was saying that his Father, the Holy Ghost had led him to the Temple for his Bar Mitzvah, which he passed with flying colors. How do we know Jesus passed his Bar Mitzvah? When a 12 year old boy, can keep a company of priests occupied for three days, listening to him and asking him questions about the Law, something more than just a once in a lifetime event has happened. Jesus passed the test. The priests failed the test.
How sad it is, that the religious leaders of Israel could spend three days with God in the Flesh, the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of mankind and not recognize him and bow before him in honor due to the God of Israel in human form come to be the Lamb of sacrifice for their sins and the sins of the world.
Had Mary lived with the lie for so long, that Jesus was the son of Joseph, that she had forgotten the words of the angel, "He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest", (Luke 1 :32). And in Vs. 35, "(Jesus) shall be called the Son of God." Mary was now confessing Jesus as the son of Joseph in direct contradiction to the words the angel of the Lord had spoken to her. There is no record that Mary ever corrected her confession.
Jesus was the I AM. The I AM who spoke to Moses from the burning bush, but was now walking the dusty foot paths of humanity, disguised in a human body; casting out devils and healing the sick, forgiving sin, raising the dead and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom and doing what Jehovah alone could do. This was the King of Israel himself. When Jesus told the priests that his name was, I AM, (John 8:58,59), they took up stones to stone him for the blasphemy of claiming to be their God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Mary could not see the I AM within the man. Mary was, at first, just as blind to the deity of Jesus Christ as were the priests of Israel. She knew she gave birth to that body, but she could not account for this new Jesus, manifesting behavior and talk which was totally different to anything she or Israel had ever heard before. Matt. 9:33.
According to the flesh, Jesus was the seed of David, Romans 1 :3; but in the Spirit he was the Lord of David, James 2: 1; Luke 20:44. In the Spirit Jesus was the father of David; but in the flesh Jesus was the son of David. Luke 20:44; Rev. 22:16. Mary could not let go the flesh. Mary could not see her baby boy as the Everlasting Father of Isaiah 9:6. Mary did not see the change from her growing boy to Immanuel. Mary knew well the Jesus who hungered but not the Jesus who created food aplenty for thousands of hungry people. She knew the Jesus, who walked about the carpenter shop and the dirt roads of Nazareth, but she didn't know the Jesus who walked on the waters of the Sea and spoke to the wind and waves, to trees and demons and even to the dead and they all instantly obeyed his voice. 3 The Bible never called Jesus, the son of Mary nor the eternal Son. The sonship began at Marys womb. This day have I begotten thee, had a double fulfillment; the birth from the womb of Mary and the birth from the womb of earth at his resurrection. Psalms 2:7; Acts 13:33; Hebrews 1:5. See Rev. 21:6,7 also for the ending.
She could not let go her child. But a sword, gently applied by the Lord himself, cut her emotional umbilical cord still tied to her son, Hebrews 4: 12; Ephesians 6: 14, God had put in a change of address; a change of mode of manifestation, from God in a tent to God in a man. The fullness of time had come. God had changed manifestations, from a Temple of stone to a temple of flesh. Now all the fullness of sinlessness, the Godnature himself, was preparing to die as a substitute for all mankind to bear their sins in his own body and by death, pay the price that he himself had required so long ago when he said. The soul that sinneth, it must die all according to the plan spoken in Genesis 3:15.
That plan included crushing the serpents head permanently. Mary had much to do with the birth of the flesh; but absolutely nothing to do with the presence of the Godnature in that flesh. Mary birthed David's seed, but not David's God. MARY DID NOT RECOGNIZE THE MIGHTY GOD (Isaiah 9:6) living in the body of her son. MARY COULD NOT ACCEPT THE DEITY LIVING IN THE HUMANITY OF JESUS CHRIST; not until Acts chapters one and two when the seed of the woman, baptized her with the Holy Ghost and she spoke in other tongues as the Spirit gave her utterance. The infilling or Baptism of the Holy Ghost as evidenced by speaking new tongues, is the power that crushes satans head. For no one had ever cast out devils before until Jesus did it. Then Jesus passed out that power to 12 then 70 and then to all believers as recorded in Mark 16:17. Casting out devils is only possible by Holy Ghost filled people. Breaking all voo doo curses, running witch doctors out of town, emptying AIDS wards and even entire hospitals by the name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Ghost, is now possible. Jesus whipped the devil and then gave us the stick he did it with the baptism of the Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking in tongues. See Acts 19, the whole chapter, for an example of the power to cast out devils.
Jesus never spoke to Mary, nor sought her out. Jesus never called her, mother. He never called her, Mary. Mark 3:19-21 reveals that Mary thought Jesus has lost his mind. Mary was not a follower of Jesus during his earthly ministry. Mark 3:32/Luke 8:19/Matt. 12:47-50, reveals that Mary did not travel with Jesus or follow him in his public ministry. For example, when Jesus had a great crowd around him, and Mary with her children came to find him, and sent word that she wanted to see him, Jesus refused to reply to her; he refused to leave the crowd and go to her or make room for her in the meeting. If Mary had followed Jesus, she would have had a front row seat in the crowd. Then Jesus denied Mary as his mother, Who is my Mother? Jesus asked. Jesus pointed to the crowd and said, Every woman who follows the will of God and obeys Gods word is my mother and sister. What a shock to Mary those words must have been. This was the sword prophesied by Simeon, Luke.2:35, that pierced her very soul. But healing was on the way.
Then Jesus forbids anyone exalting Mary in any way in Luke 11:27,28, when a woman said, Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts that gave you suck Jesus replied, On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it. Jesus never spoke a word about Mary or paid any tribute to her or called her his mother. Jesus knew that human nature is prone to mother worship and he blocked that possibility at every opportunity.
The greatest truth of all is found in Ps. 100:4/Hebrews7:1-4/2 Cor. 5:19/Mal. 3:1/1 Tim 3:16. The scripture declares that Jesus, like Melchizedek before him, had no mother, no father or beginning or ending of days. The flesh temple had a mother, but the one who lived in that temple had no mother or father, HE WAS THE FATHER, in the mode of flesh for the suffering of death. The end of the mode as Son is found in Rev. 21:7 Jesus said, I will be their God and they shall be my sons and daughters. The Bible never speaks of an eternal Son. Mary received Jesus in her flesh by conception. But on the day of Pentecost Mary received Jesus in Spirit and received the new birth by the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and she spoke in other tongues. Her son was her savior and Lord. What a marvel.
The Word in Hebrews 11, chose Sarah as the role model for woman, not Mary. Even two of Marys sons by Joseph, James and Jude, who wrote the books of the Bible bearing their names did not choose Mary as a role model for woman. And in Hebrews, Mary was not listed alongside Rehab or Sarah as a hero of faith. What faith did it take to say, Be it unto me. What faith did it take to list Jesus as the son of her husband, Joseph or confess Jesus as the son of Joseph at the Temple of Jehovah? Hebrews 11; James 5:10; James 2:1; Jude vs. 21. And Peter chose Sarah as the only role model for woman. Woman of faith in Jesus Christ are the children of Sarah, not Mary, according to Peter. 1 Peter 3:6.
JESUS LIFE came from his Father not his mother. John 5:24-28. JESUS BLOOD came from his Father, not his mother. Acts 20:28; Lev. 17:11. JESUS WORDS came from his Father, not his mother, John 14:24; 3:34; 14:10; 12:48-50.
Read the following Bible verses to find proof that trying to communicate with the dead is talking to demons (not 4 the dead) and is blasphemy before the Lord God Jehovah, Deut. 18:9-14; Ex. 7:11,12; 22:18; Lev. 19:26,31; 20:6,27; 1 Chron. 10: 13, 14; 2 Ki. 21:5,6; Isa. 2:6; Jer. 27:9,10; Zech. 10:2; Mal 3:5; 1 Cor. 10:8-21. Demons will torment you if you communicate with the dead in any way. They can imitate the voices of the dead loved ones to deceive the living.
All your sins were laid on Jesus Christ when he hung on that Cross, Isaiah 53:6. All your sins were poured into Jesus' body on the Cross, 2 Cor. 5:21.TLB, 1 Peter 2:24. Jesus died with your sins and the sins of the world in his body and by his death paid the full price for all those sins. YOU CAN DO NOTHING TO PAY FOR YOUR SINS YOURSELF. Titus 3:5; Hebrews 9:22. Read Ps. 49 in TLB for an eyeopener.
The Bible said that Jesus died unto sin ONCE for all, Romans 6: 10; Jesus WAS SACRIFICED for (our) sins ONCE FOR ALL when he offered himself, Hebrews 7:27. Jesus entered the Most Holy Place ONCE FOR ALL by his OWN BLOOD, BY WHICH HE OBTAINED ETERNAL REDEMPTION, meaning that there will never again be any need for a blood sacrifice for sin. Jesus offering of himself was sufficient for all men for all time. False religion says Jesus death did not provide eternal redemption but only temporary redemption. Dont you believe it.
By one sacrifice of himself (one and only one) Jesus perfected forever those who are sanctified, Hebrews 2: 12; 10: 12, 14, 15, 17. The Lord Jesus said, "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more". Heb. 10: 15, 17. "But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him." Rom. 5: 8,9. "(W)e were reconciled to God by the death of his Son," vs. 10. To say now that Jesus death was not sufficient to bring reconciliation for all mankind, is to cancel the meaning and efficacy of the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross. That is the greatest blasphemy satan every perpetrated upon the human race. Transubstantiation, is number ONE on satans list of doctrines to destroy everything Jesus Christ accomplished by his death on the Cross.
"Knowing that CHRIST BEING RAISED FROM THE DEAD DIETH NO MORE. For in that he died, he died unto sin ONCE; But now, being made FREE from sin, (we) become servants to God, ... and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the GIFT OF GOD is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Rom. 6:9,10,18,22,23.
Please pray this simple prayer out loud: Lord Jesus, I thank you for the Blood you shed on the Cross. I know it was my sins that appeared in your body, that brought down the death blow upon you as you hung on the Cross. I love you for that Jesus. I believe with all my heart that your death paid for all my sins, fully and completely. I repent and turn away from all my sins. I am sorry for all my sins. I forgive all my enemies. I open my heart and forgive all who have ever hurt me. Fill me with the Holy Ghost. Teach me your Word. I surrender my life to you. I forsake all other gods and religions and will worship you only.
Now lift your hands and speak directly to the Lord Jesus and thank him for his mercy. GOD INHABITS THE PRAISES OF HIS PEOPLE. So praise him with all your heart and you will know his presence. He will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and make you a new creature and give you a new language. Dont be afraid to speak out. He will never force you to speak. When you praise him with all your heart, you will sense his mighty presence. Dont be afraid to speak out the words he is giving you in your spirit.
Praise him aloud with all your heart and his Spirit will come upon you. You will sense his presence. Speak out the language he gives you. You will never understand it and he won't force you to speak. Just keep praising him out loud with all your heart and speak out the language of the Spirit. Read Acts 2:1-4; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 15:7-9; Acts 19:1-7. In every case, they knew they had received the Baptism because they all spoke in other tongeus when they were filled or Baptized with the Holy Ghost. You will too. Now Read Acts 1:8 and John 7:37-39. Jesus said you havent chosen me, I have chosen you. Many are called but few are chosen. Many go the broad way to destruction. But the narrow way to life, few there be that find it.

PLEASE NOTICE: SPECIAL BULLETIN Never before in history could this prophecy be possiblebut it is now possible in 2010 a.d., because of Barack Hussein Obama, Muslim hostility toward Israel. Late News: June 8, 2010, Both Turkey and Iran are now offering to accompany the next Gaza flotilla and break the Israeli blockade of their Ashdod port. That would make three nations of the world joining together to move against Israel. This effort foreshadows the prophecy of Ezekiel 38,39 where Russia and Muslim Satellite nations move against Israel in an attempted invasion. The prophecy also says that the US and England will sit back and not try to help or protect Israel during that coming conflict. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the blockade and said it was meant to keep weapons out of the hands of the Iranian-backed Hamas and he would "not allow the establishment of an Iranian port in Gaza." Note: The prophecy doesnt tell just when that attempted invasion will take place. But one thing was always certain, Ezekiels prophecy could not come to pass, as long as the United States was the unconditional protector of Israel. Now in 2010, for the first time in history, the United States has withdrawn their unconditional support and protection of Israel. Sadly, the way is now clear for Ezekiels prophecy to be fulfilled. This crisis may pass without further conflict, but no one dares say that it wont build into the fulfillment of Ezekiels amazing prophecy. BE ye also ready, for in such an hour as you think not, the Son of Man cometh. Matt. 24:44.
