Modern Judicial System, Shameless Mock Trials, Perjury And False Witnesses, Laws Are Zionist Tool For The Destruction Of Christianity, A Religion Of Faith, Spiritual Blindness, Parables, Self-Inflicted Divine Judgments And Chastisements

In our modern judiciary system, a person's innocence or guilt concerning any given matter is sometimes determined by the accused, or his defense attorney, presenting specific evidence and witnesses, as well as the plaintiff, or the prosecuting attorney, presenting his evidence and witnesses. After both parties have had ample opportunity to present their case before the judge and jury, it is then up to the jury members to carefully weigh the facts which have been set before them; and to deliberate until they can reach a unanimous verdict. This process finds its precedent, in part, in the Scriptures. For example, in the New Testament we find both Jesus and the Apostle Paul reiterating what is found in the Mosaic Law:

"Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
Matthew 18:15-20, KJV

"This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."
2 Corinthians 13:1, KJV

"Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses."
1 Timothy 5:19, KJV

"He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:"
Hebrews 10:28, KJV

Tragically, due to moral and spiritual corruption, both then and now, these cases are not always decided fairly. In other words, they are mock trials; because the guilt or the innocence of the accused party has already been decided even before any evidence has been presented. In the mind of the Christian, the most famous mock trial is undoubtedly the one which condemned Jesus Christ to die a slow horrible death by Roman crucifixion. In that particular case, we are clearly told that the Sanhedrin bribed false witnesses into testifying against the innocent Jesus:

"Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death; But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses, And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days. And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?"
Matthew 26:59-62, KJV

This would not be the last time that the evil unbelieving Jews would try to silence the Voice of Truth by bribing false witnesses into testify against the Lord's children. Realizing how successful they had been to destroy Jesus, it wasn't long before these unholy vipers began dragging His followers to the judgment seat as well. This occurred in direct fulfillment of Jesus' own words when He said:

"Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also."
John 15:20, KJV

"But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them."
Mark 13:9, KJV

The Book of Acts contains quite a few examples of how the jealous Jews fulfilled the words of our Lord. One famous mock trial revolves around the martyr Stephen, who was killed in Acts chapter seven. What started out as a religious dispute in the synagogue, soon developed into a full-fledged trial before the Sanhedrin, in which certain false witnesses accused Stephen of blasphemy:

"Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen. And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake. Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God. And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council, And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law: For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us."
Acts 6:9-14, KJV

Stephen delivered such a powerful testimony before the Jewish kangaroo court, that those present had to literally stop their ears as they dragged him outside of the gates of Jerusalem where they stoned him:

"Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep."
Acts 7:57-60, KJV

These are but two examples of the many treacherous lies perpetrated by the Satan-inspired enemies of the Lord's children by way of their corrupt judiciary system. In the Old Testament, about one thousand years before Jesus ever came in the flesh, we find another perfect example of the corruption which was rampant within the Jewish court of law. As you will see, it was partially because of this particular incident, that the ancient Israelites demanded that the Prophet Samuel provide them with an Earthly king; just like the pagan nations around them:

"And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel. Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba. And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment. Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations."
1 Samuel 8:1-5, KJV

As I point out in my in-depth and revelatory series "The International Jew And The Protocols Of Zion", these acts of perjury, that is, setting up false witnesses who knowingly and purposely lie in the courtroom, are not limited to the ancient Israelites or to their New Testament counterparts. In fact, there is ample evidence to suggest that the modern Jews, or more specifically, the Zionists, have quietly positioned themselves within judiciary systems around the world, all for the specific purpose of slowly destroying Christianity by means of man-made laws. As I have pointed out in other articles, it is through this practice of imposing the corrupt laws made by the few upon the many, that the Law of God has for the most part been totally neutralized and abrogated, or abolished, precisely as was revealed by Jesus Christ Himself in the following verses:

"Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands? He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition . . . Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye."
Mark 7:5-9, 13, KJV

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone."
Matthew 23:23, KJV

This crime and act of rebellion against the God of Heaven is clearly and sadly revealed in the United States of America, a supposedly God-fearing nation, where Christian prayer has been prohibited within the public school system, where manger scenes and other religiously-oriented objects have been outlawed on government property, where antichristian practices such as abortion and gay and lesbian relationships are encouraged, supported and protected by law, and where it may eventually even become illegal to own a Bible! All of these things have occurred as a result of allowing the Zionist conspirators to infiltrate the American judicial system; either directly by placing their own lawyers and judges in positions where they can affect matters of the law, or else by corrupting those who are in such positions by means of various forms of bribery. As we have already seen, this plan has been in effect since the time that Jesus Christ was brought before the Sanhedrin. As I point out in the aforementioned series, almost one hundred and twenty years ago, a certain document came to light which reveals that the Zionists have never veered from the course first set in Jerusalem so many years ago.

On January 13, 1489, a certain Jewish Rabbi by the name of Chemor, of Arles, a town in the region of Provence, France, wrote a letter to the Grand Sanhedrin in which he sought some desperately-needed advice. It seems that the French citizens were threatening the local synagogues of that area, and the Rabbi wasn't quite sure how to respond to the tense situation. Following are some shocking excerpts from the cut and dry response he received from his superiors. This is part of a bona fide document which was published in 1880 in the "Revue Des Etudes Juives", a publication which just so happened to be financed by James de Rothschild of the influential German-Jewish Rothschild financial empire!:

----- Begin Quote -----

"Dear beloved brethren in Moses, we have received your letter in which you tell us of the anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by as great pain to hear it as yourselves."

"The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following: --"

"As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix themselves up with the affairs of State, in order that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them."

"Do not swerve from this order that we give you, because you will find by experience that, humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power."

"Signed V. S. S.A.F. F., Prince of the Jews, 21st Caslue (November), 1489."

----- End Of Quote -----

That these court officials are liars and perjurers of the worst kind, is clearly revealed to us by the words of Jesus Christ spoken almost two thousand years ago, when He boldly accused them of the following:

"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."
John 8:44, KJV

In the world today, even outside of the Zionist-controlled judicial systems, there are also many false witnesses and deceived persons who scoff at those who cling in hope to the message of Salvation contained in the Gospels. This is in direct fulfillment of a prophecy uttered by Peter almost two thousand years ago:

"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."
2 Peter 3:3-4, KJV

In his Epistle to the Hebrews, the Apostle Paul clearly tells us that ours is a religion of faith; and that without such faith, it is impossible to please God:

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen . . . But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
Hebrews 11:1, 6, KJV

Despite this Biblical truth, these foul-mouthed Endtime mockers of the Word of God demand some kind of physical or scientific evidence before they will believe. Naturally, short of an outright miracle, or the coming Wrath of God, there is absolutely no way that we can meet their demands for proof; at least not to their satisfaction. In fact, even if they were to witness modern-day miracles, I still don't think that it would change some of these people's hearts. As I have explained in other articles, some of these scoffers have had their minds darkened and their hearts hardened to such a degree, that they are totally past feeling the conviction of God's Spirit. This is precisely what the Apostle Paul tells us. In fact, Peter adds that they are brute beasts which will be destroyed:

"This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness."
Ephesians 4:17-19, KJV

"But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;"
2 Peter 2:12, KJV

Taking another look at the past, we know that even though many signs and wonders were performed by the hand of Moses, it didn't change the heart of Pharaoh King of Egypt one bit; any more than the miracles of Jesus changed the hearts of the unbelieving Scribes and Pharisees and their blind obedient followers. Consider some of the things that Jesus said concerning the enemies of His day:

"Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them."
Matthew 13:13-15, KJV

"Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? . . . Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also."
Matthew 23:16-19, 24-26, KJV

"And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?"
Luke 6:39, KJV

". . . If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead."
Luke 16:31b, KJV

This is precisely what happened too. Even though Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, as well as the daughter of Jairus, the ruler of the synagogue, the hard-hearted Jews still did not believe. It seems that the more the truth is shown to some people, the more they harden their hearts against it. This is certainly true in our modern day as more and more people place their faith in science and technology, the new gods of this world. If trying to prove the Divinity of Christ were handled in a Earthly court of law, we would definitely lose the case; at least in the eyes of the unbelievers. However, by even dragging us into court for such a thing, they might not realize it now, but THEY are the ones who are really being put on trial by God Himself; for you see, Jesus told us in the Gospels:

"For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."
Matthew 12:37, KJV

Many people do not realize it, but by speaking words against the Children of God, or by causing them harm, they are judging themselves. They are bringing God's chastisements upon themselves. I discuss this topic more fully in the article "Exposing The Judge Not Fallacy". This act of bringing God's judgments upon oneself is precisely what happened to Pharaoh of Egypt in the days of Moses. The final plague of Egypt came right out of Pharaoh's own mouth:

"And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die . . . And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more."
Exodus 10:28, 11:4-6, KJV

Just for the sake of argument, what if we were to hold a trial in order to prove, or in the case of our enemies, to disprove, the validity of the Divine Origin and unique Sonship of Jesus Christ? Naturally, the best witnesses we could find would be those who have firsthand knowledge of the events surrounding this Man's life. With this in mind, I have assembled some firsthand witnesses who are willing to come to the defense of He who has dared to call Himself the Son of God. Of course, we know that the Lord doesn't really need anyone to come to His defense; but this is an imaginary trial to simply prove a point.

Before calling the "Accused" to the witness stand, let's open the case by turning our attention to the first Defense Witness. Our First Witness carries a lot of Authority, and also has a tremendous amount of Influence on this world. I seriously doubt that the Prosecuting Attorney, that is, A.G. Satan, will want to cross-examine this particular Witness. Tragically, this Witness felt that it was in our best interest that He didn't make a Personal Appearance, as it would have been too overwhelming for us mere humans. Thus, instead, He has left this court with His Written Testimony which He has asked us to share with you. His first piece of evidence is the following: During Jesus' water baptism by John, three of the Gospel writers recorded the Words of our First Witness in the following events:

"And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
Matthew 3:17, KJV

"And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
Mark 1:11, KJV

"And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased."
Luke 3:22, KJV

You will recall that one of the requirements of the Law is that for a thought to be valid, it must be established in the mouth of two or three witnesses. As can be seen, these statements, made by three different individuals, agree perfectly with each other; thus, there can be no doubt that they are valid testimony and can be admitted as evidence in this case. Let us continue now by examining some additional remarks provided by our First Witness. When Jesus took Peter, James and John up into a high mountain alone and was transfigured before them, we also find these three same Gospel writers recording the following Words from our First Witness:

"While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him."
Matthew 17:5, KJV

"And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him."
Mark 9:7, KJV

"And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him."
Luke 9:35, KJV

An undetermined number of years later, the Apostle Peter referred back to the above event in his second Epistle. In recalling this wonderful experience, which undoubtedly affected him for the rest of his life, he wrote as follows:

"For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
2 Peter 1:17, KJV

This is the second powerful testimony which has now been confirmed in the mouth of three witnesses. Just like the previous one, it comes down straight from The Top; as such, there is absolutely no reason why it should not also be admitted to this court as valid testimony. Thus far, this man, Jesus Christ, seems to be exactly who He claims to be; that is, the Son of God. For those of you sitting up in the balconies, it appears that the Prosecuting Attorney, A.G. Satan, has suddenly been afflicted with a severe case of the courtroom jitters. Could it be that he already sees his case falling apart? For those jury members who foolishly wish to dismiss these statements as being pure fabrications made by our First Witness, He wisely foresaw this possibility ahead of time, and thus left the following admonitions for your consideration:

"God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?"
Numbers 23:19, KJV

"God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged."
Romans 3:4, KJV

"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;"
Titus 1:2, KJV

"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."
John 8:44, KJV

"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."
1 John 2:22, KJV

"He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son."
1 John 5:10, KJV

"If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."
1 John 1:10, KJV

With our most powerful Witness having now presented His Evidence, there appears to be little doubt in the jury box that Jesus Christ is indeed the Son of God. At this point in the trial, it doesn't seem likely that any of the jurors are going to accuse Him of being a liar. As the Apostle Paul wrote, they all seem to be fully persuaded that these things are so:

". . . Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind."
Romans 14:5, KJV

This isn't making A.G. Satan very happy in the least. While he is doing his best to try to convince the jurors that the First Witness has lied to them, clearly, only a fool would be so stupid as to make such an accusation against Him. Sadly, there are indeed some people today who not only deny the existence of the Son of God, but they also reject the existence of His Father as well. Even during the time of King David this condition existed. It is for this reason that he wrote in his fourteenth Psalm:

". . . The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."
Psalm 14:1b, KJV
