THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW WERE IN YOUR BIBLE!
 
                      THE NAME GOD IS A FAMILY NAME

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”  Did you notice that it does not say Let me make man in my image."  It is the plural "us and ours."  Why?  Because, the word God in this passage, is derived from the word 'Elohiym which is a word denoting plurality.  It always means two or more. (Plural Gods!) Literally, the scripture should read, “Gods said, let us make man in our image and in our likeness.”

Since the plural word Elohiym, which should be translated "Gods" did not harmonize with traditional thinking, the translators incorrectly fixed the problem by substituting the singular word God.  They had to fix the problem over 2000 times because they didn't understand the truth about the God Family and their name.  God is a surname, no different than your own last name.  A name identifies the members of a family.  Jesus Christ is the second member of the God family. He is the son. He is the spokesman for the God family.  He was also creator. In Hebrews 1:2, it says, (God )“hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
by whom also he made the worlds.”
 

JESUS CHRIST HAD BROTHERS AND SISTERS

The doctrine that Jesus Christ was the only son of Mary is false. 

"Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him." 

The Bible says Mary was the mother of Jesus, James, Joses, Juda, Simon and unnamed sisters.  But it does not say that Joseph was the father of Christ.  God was.  Really, they were his half brothers and sisters.

 

CHRIST SPOKE IN PARABLES SO PEOPLE WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND

Contrary to popular opinion, Christ did not speak in parables to make things clear. 

"And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.  And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. Mark 4:10-12
 

"And the disciples came, and said unto him, why do You speak unto them in parables?  He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. Matt 13:10-13
 

PICTURES OF JESUS BREAK THE SECOND COMMANDMENT

The bible says that Christ had no form or comeliness (beauty) that we would desire him. (Isaiah 53)  The pictures of Jesus generally portray an attractive thin man.  In His own times, He was falsely accused of being a glutton and a winebibber.  You wouldn't call a thin man a glutton.  He may have been a little overweight.  In any case, the point is that no one knows exactly what Christ looked like.  To carry a picture of Jesus which is most likely just an image of some model in the middle ages is useless. 

It is better to keep the commandment of not making a graven image (religious image). To make an image of Christ, whether it be a statue, carving, painting or a photograph---is to make a graven image of Him.  The second commandment is "Thou shalt not make any graven images."  For all anyone knows, all those pictures of Jesus may look more like the devil than like the real Christ.

 

CHRIST WILL BE KING OF THE EARTH AT HIS RETURN

CHRIST PROMISED HIS 12 DISCIPLES THAT EACH ONE WOULD RULE ONE OF THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL IN HIS KINGDOM!

Christ said, “I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” Matthew 19:28 

Christ will come back and establish His Kingdom on earth.  The 12 tribes of Israel will be re-established at that time.  Zachariah Chapter 14 describes the return of Christ to the earth.  It says that Christ's feet will land on the Mount of Olives and He will be King of the Earth!  "And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one."  Read the whole chapter of Zechariah to see the exciting return of Christ.
