Did Jesus really live? If so did he really die on the Cross?

The OT was a testimony to the anticipation of a Messiah who was going to be “cut off” from the world to save the world from their sins. Many of the OT prophets wrote of this. Many people simply claim Jesus was not a real Man, or there was no crucifixion event. If the disciples did not witness that Christ had resurrected, then they would have known Jesus was an impostor. The death on the Cross was one of the most important prophecies. Most people do not know that Jesus had to fulfill approximately 300 prophecies that were penned in the Old testament which give us detailed events proclaiming the Messiah’s place of his birth, the manner of his birth, his betrayal and the manner of his death and his resurrection. End result; they were fulfilled.

Two pieces of historical evidence that Jesus died:

Tacitus, the roman historian writings in 115AD, speaks about Nero’s persecuting of the Christians in the year 46AD, stating; “Christus…was executed at the hands of the procurator Pontius Pilate in the reign of Tiberius’.

The Talmud (Jewish traditions from the 3rd century) says “on the eve of the Passover they hanged Jeshu of Nazareth”


It is also a misunderstanding to believe the true Bible was written my Man. More correctly, it was penned by Man, but its true author was the Holy Spirit. Christians know this to be true as witnesses to the word.

Westcott and Hort, who are known as the Fathers of modern Bible versions, were known to not believe in the deity of Christ, so it is logical why the mount sinaiticus and alexandrian codex where in error to purposely pervert the modern bibles such as NIV and RV.

“There are over 5,300 (5,309 to be exact) existing manuscripts of the Scriptures which make up the Majority Texts (Textus Receptus)”, which is where the KJV bible comes from, and you believe this copy of this unknown perverted bible which states Jesus was not crucified going to destroy a man’s faith?

We are not here to attack persons or anyone’s heart, but we are as Christians are suppose to peacefully proclaim correct doctrine.

Pentecostal Church Debate

United Pentecostals -VS- Christianity – DEBATE
featuring Dr Walter Martin

A fascinating and educational debate between the UPC and Orthodox Christianity.

Key issues discussed are:

Trinitarian theology VS the Oneness doctrine
-Does the Old Testament support Trinitarian theology?
-Was Trinitarian theology derived from pagan mythology and at the council of Nicea?
Salvation by faith alone VS salvation by faith, baptism and speaking in ‘tongues’.

The debate focuses on the important question of whether the UPC is behaving as a Christian cult.

Witnesses of Jehovah – Jeremiah Films 1986

“Witnesses of Jehovah goes behind the scenes to reveal how the Watchtower Society holds tyrannical control over the lives of its 6,400,000 members (1986). In the United States alone, over 1.2 million Jehovah’s Witnesses spend more than 184 million hours each year peddling their counterfeit gospel door to door. If a true Christian actually engages them in a discussion – they quickly find out that the Jehovah’s Witness is better verse in their belief’s than most Christians. To assist you in being better informed and “always ready to give a defense hope the hope that is in you”this cutting edge documentary traces the history of the Watch Tower from its first day penetrating the schemes, scams, and the false prophecies used by this pseudo-Christian cult.”

On the Bible Answer Man broadcast from Jan 17, 1987, Walter Martin interviews Leonard & Marjorie Chretien, former Jehovah’s Witnesses and co-authors of, “Witnesses of Jehovah”. The Chretiens provide unique and valuable insights into the activities of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.

Aliens Come From Hell

A fascinating look into the Biblical view of fallen angels and the possibility of these daemonic entities creating ancient structures on the moon. Is this real NASA footage? Although it is extremely difficult to prove such claims, there is reason to believe that today we are very unaware of unknown technologies which may have existed before the flood in the days of Noah.

Christian Daniel shares his views concerning the new world order, definitions of common words, why the public is in debt and the role of Christians in todays secular societies.

Please view all his videos at:

Some interesting definitions [Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913 and 1828 editions)]:

A name or appellation which is added to, or over and above, the baptismal or Christian name

- So a surname, which was added to the Christian name (through the birth certificate/record), may be unknowingly removing someone from God’s covenant and blessing?

A public transaction done for private profit; something performed ostensibly (appearing) as a part of official duty, but really for private gain; a corrupt official business.

- So a job may be defined as a corrupt criminal activity?

Excess of liberty; freedom abused, or used in contempt of law or decorum; disregard of law or propriety.

- A licence gives you permission to abuse and disregard the law?

These common words, along with their uncommon meanings, may be the reason why we are generally treated as criminals and enemies of the state. Maybe we need to wise up and learn how to successfully operate under ecclesiastical and/or common law.

Scripture concerning Kings, Laws and Confidence

The following is a compilation of scripture which refers to God’s teachings concerning appointing kings as rulers over man, which laws we are to follow, and who man should put his confidence in.

1 Samuel 8:10-18
And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king. And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. And he will take your daughters to be  confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye
shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
“And ye shall cry out in that day, because of your king”,…. His power and pride, his oppression and tyranny, his heavy exactions, and intolerable yoke, and yet not be able to free themselves from them; all that they could do would be only to cry out under them as grievously distressed, and not knowing how to help themselves; and which would be the more aggravated, because they brought all this upon themselves, as it follows: “which ye shall have chosen you”; for though the choice of a king for them, at a proper time, God had reserved to himself, yet in later times, as is here suggested, they would choose for themselves, and did, see Hosea 8:4 besides, to have a king in general was at first their own choice, though the particular person was by the designation of the Lord: “and the Lord will not hear you in that day”; will not regard them, have no compassion on them, suffer them to remain under their oppressions, and not deliver them out of them; because they rejected him from being their King, and put themselves out of his protection, into the hands of another, and therefore it was just to leave them to their own choice.

Romans 13
Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
“It is not the business of civil rulers to regulate or control religion. That is a distinct department, with which they have no concern, except to protect it. The rights of all people are to be preserved. People are to be allowed to worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience, and to be protected in those rights, provided they do not violate the peace and order of the community. Civil rulers have no right to persecute Christians, or to attempt to secure conformity to their views by force. The conscience cannot be compelled; and in the affairs of religion man must be free.
Therefore … – “Because” love does no harm to another, it is “therefore” the fulfilling of the Law, implying that all that the Law requires is to “love” others.
Is the fulfilling – Is the “completion,” or meets the requirements of the Law. The Law of God on this “head,” or in regard to our duty to our neighbor, requires us to do justice toward him, to observe truth, etc. “All” this will be met by “love;” and if people truly “loved” others, all the demands of the Law would be satisfied.”
Of the law – Of the Law of Moses, but particularly the Ten Commandments.

Leviticus 18:1-5
1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God. 3After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. 4Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God. 5Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
“Unlawful marriages and fleshly lusts. – Here is a law against all conformity to the corrupt usages of the heathen. Also laws against incest, against brutal lusts, and barbarous idolatries; and the enforcement of these laws from the ruin of the Canaanites. God here gives moral precepts. Close and constant adherence to God’s ordinances is the most effectual preservative from gross sin. The grace of God only will secure us; that grace is to be expected only in the use of the means of grace. Nor does He ever leave any to their hearts’ lusts, till they have left him and his services.”

Acts 5:27-32
27And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, 28Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us. 29Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. 30The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. 31Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. 32And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible
We ought to obey God rather than men – The same answer they gave before, Acts 4:19, founded on the same reason, which still stood good. We have received our commission from God; we dare not lay it down at the desire or command of men.

Psalm 118:8
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
This is stated apparently as the result of his own experience. He had found people weak and faithless; he had not so found God.
(1) because man is weak – but God is Almighty;
(2) because man is selfish – but God is benevolent;
(3) because man is often faithless and deceitful – God never;
(4) because there are emergencies, as death, in which man cannot aid us, however faithful, kind, and friendly he may be – but there are no circumstances in this life, and none in death, where God cannot assist us; and
(5) because the ability of man to help us pertains at best only to this present life – the power of God will be commensurate with eternity.

Psalm 146:3
Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
Put not your trust in princes – Rely on God rather than on man, however exalted he may be. There is a work of protection and salvation which no man, however exalted he may be, can perform for you; a work which God alone, who is the Maker of all things, and who never dies, can accomplish. See the notes at Psalm 118:8-9. Compare also the notes at Isaiah 2:22 : “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils, for wherein is he to be accounted of?”
Nor in the son of man – Any son of man; any human being, no matter what his rank or power

Does the Bible say we should obey Government?

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers.”  (Romans 13:1)
“Remind them to be subject to government and those in authority…” (Titus 3:1)
“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake…” (1 Peter 2:13)

These, and other Scriptures, make it appear that it is everyone’s duty and obligation to obey those ‘in authority’, i.e. those in government.

But…is it really so?

It’s important that the whole portion of Scripture is read before drawing conclusions on such important matters.   
For example, by further reading Romans 13:3 to 4, we see that the government to be obeyed refers to GODLY government.
When an authority or government follows Biblical principals, there would be no reason not to obey their laws and instructions for it would then be based on God’s laws and instructions.    

In Titus 3, we need to read further to verse 3 to learn that Paul is telling us to be tolerant of our leaders since we, ourselves, are often foolish, intolerant and subject to mistakes.    However, being tolerant does not mean we should continually suffer because of the vices and mistakes of others and, if the leaders refuse to amend their ways to Godly ways, they should be removed from their positions of trust.

In 1 Peter 2:13, the inference is similar to the above, that we should have no fear of accepting the lead of righteous rulers.

It was never God’s plan for men to be subject to tyranny.   

When Satan sinned, he was cast out of Heaven (2 Peter 2:4; Revelation 12:9).
Being thus cast out, and by the temptation and fall of Adam, he gained possession of the earth (Genesis 3) and became the god and prince of this world.  
The wonderful inheritance that was originally given to Adam has now passed over into the possession of Satan, until it shall be redeemed by Christ at His second advent.
Sinful man, therefore, is Satan’s lawful captive and in this condition man is represented as a prisoner.
As Satan’s prisoners, we, including the rulers and leaders of governments, are all subject to his evil influence.   One way or another, simply because of who is prince of this world, ALL human government is subject to errors and corruption.   
Whatsoever is corrupt is not of God, for He is incorruptible.
The mission of Jesus was, and is, to destroy and remove the work of this enemy – the ruler of this world.
Therefore, we should revise our opening question to:-


The answer is:- Only if that government is a GODLY government.
Unfortunately, there are no Godly governments today, thus ALL human laws are flawed.   
You say: “A murderer gets convicted and dealt with because of our laws, therefore man’s laws are good.”
I say: “Murder contravenes God’s Sixth Commandment, therefore it is God’s law, not man’s law.”
You say: “Speeding motorists who get caught rightly pay the penalty, therefore man’s laws are good.”
I say: “Define ‘speeding’.   God has made no provision for ‘speeding’ but He has made great provision for responsibility.   People, especially children, have been killed by vehicles hitting them at 5kph or less, therefore ‘speeding’, alone, does not kill anyone whereas carelessness or recklessness might.   Man’s laws on speeding, therefore, are flawed.”
You say: “People that don’t vote at elections are fined for not helping determine government, therefore man’s laws are good.”
I say: “God does not approve of men choosing men (or women) to rule over them.   Christians should not vote to elect pagan rulers to govern them, therefore man’s laws are discriminatory and flawed.”
And, similarly, all laws can be so determined.   

Australian government, for many years now, has been visibly corrupt and it’s also clear that it’s been progressively removing basic Christian ideals from all education programs, thereby leading the people to a form of paganism.

It is a Common Law principle (Common Law was originally based on common sense) that man’s laws (Statute laws) must not contravene God’s Laws.

Once a government begins to deliberately lead people away from the word of God, it is signifying its intent to do away with, or nullify, the Laws of God.

From what we discern from the Scriptures, Jesus appeared to do all that was necessary to avoid conflict with the prevailing rulers and laws of the time.              
We, therefore, should try to do the same.

Nevertheless, on two Passover occasions, Jesus forcibly removed merchants and money-changers from the Temple area (Mark 11:15 and John 2:15).   There are possible aspects of violence in Jesus’ act (by the making of a small whip and overturning the many tables) which, by today’s standards, could easily invoked police interference.   
Jesus also declined to pay tributes, i.e. taxes (Luke 23:2).
Such acts would certainly have contravened either the Jewish or Roman laws of the day and yet Jesus found it justifiable to ignore certain laws when they contravened the rights and/or sanctity of people or property, especially property dedicated to God.

(i)    Australian law includes innumerable laws inherited from British Common Law.
(derived from common sense).    One of these laws is the right, for Protestants, to bear arms (weapons) suitable for self defence.   (You will recall that Peter used a small arm weapon to defend Jesus when the Romans came to arrest Him.)   Recently, the Australian government instituted a law to prohibit the possession of most forms of weapons, even for self defence.   Such a law is null and void, making it quite within a person’s right to ignore that law.   We must take into account, however, the ignorance of the responsible authorities (i.e. police) to comprehend this fact and, because of their ignorance, could use lethal force against you to uphold that unjust law.      
(ii)    Another Common Law right prevents anyone from being penalized until actually proven guilty of the offence.   By stealth, the government has tried to hide this right (and various other rights) in order to penalize people, almost at will.   Such laws are also null and void.
(iii)    Again, by stealth, the government is leading the population into a Socialist and Godless regime that is intended to result in dictatorship.   That Christians would allow or accept such a brazen heresy is yet another sign of Satan’s influence on humanity.   God- fearing Christians should reject such laws.

Through fear, tradition, default, habit, ignorance, or for any other reason, most people conform to whatever the governments of the world dictate.
Non-conformists are generally classified as radicals, fools, heretics, and worse.
All worldly governments enforce conformity at every opportunity in order to maintain the status quo, i.e. their own positions of power and control.
The Bible, however, tells us, “And be not conformed to this world…” (Romans 12:2.)
No-one can be ‘saved’ by conforming to whatever this world has to offer, whether of material things or the dictates and laws of governments.
Of course we will.   It was for non-compliance of corrupt Jewish or Romish laws that most of the Apostles were imprisoned or executed.    Paul, in particular, did not conform to this world and its corrupt (man-made) State policies.   
Neither should any other true followers of Jesus.
‘Fear’ is the bludgeon of the State but it is written, “The Lord is my helper and I will not fear what man shall do to me” (Hebrews 13:6).

In a ruling Christian government, people should obey the established laws and could expect to benefit immeasurably by doing so.   (The writer knows of no Christian governments, anywhere in the world, today.)

In a non-Christian ruling government (as we have in Australia, today), people ought to abide by those laws that do not conflict in any way with God’s Laws.   There are not many!
On the other hand, when any laws lead people away from God and where they deliberately prevent people from exercising their God-given rights, these ought to be totally rejected.

Ultimately, it must be accepted that RIGHT is right and WRONG is wrong.
The things we know to be right or wrong are those things explained to us through the word of God.   
Jeremiah explains this to us at 31:33:  the Law (i.e. God’s Law, especially the Ten Commandments) is written into the hearts of those who belong to God.   

Those who are not God’s children follow laws of a different nature.  These are laws of States (i.e. man-made) and are called ‘Statutes’.

Christians should always remain alert to those laws which are not only blatantly wrong (as mentioned under ‘Situations’) but to those laws which are morally wrong, and use their God-given discretion in opposing such wrong laws.

It should also be remembered that the true and correct government of Australia rests with the People!    The so-called parliament/government is merely the visible representation of the will of the People!
Think — does this representative parliament/government dutifully obey the will of the People?
No, it clearly does not!
It is totally corrupt and God’s people are not required to conform to it.
If everyone understood the principles of ‘good government’, they would eliminate the existing system without delay or compromise.   That they do not understand the principles is the very reason why the system is so bad and rapidly becoming worse.

“Render unto caesar the things which are caesar’s”

Whatever Jesus said was for us to learn and live by, so, what did He mean when He spoke the above words to the Pharisees’ disciples?   (Matthew 22:21 & Mark 12:17)
Did He mean that we should always pay our taxes or whatever fees governments impose upon us, as many suppose?
To better understand the expression, let’s ascertain the reason for the statement in the first place.
The disciples of the Pharisees were trying to trap Jesus into admitting that Caesar was supreme.   Remember, in those times, the Caesars considered themselves to be gods and assumed everything belonged to them.

The question was actually not to do with taxation but to do with allegiance.

They asked, “Is it lawful to give tribute (tax) unto Caesar, or not?”
If Jesus had said, “Yes”, then it would have meant that He was also subject to Caesar as a vassal and certainly not the Son of God.
If He’d said, “No”, they would have declared Jesus to be against Caesar and, therefore, an enemy of the State and subject to death.
Seeing through their deceptive query, Jesus simply pointed out that Caesar could have what he claimed was his, but not those things which belonged to God.

And what belongs to God?
Why, everything!
No wonder the Pharisee disciples “marvelled” at His response – He had utterly destroyed their question.

Nevertheless, to compare the original question with modern-day taxation, we need to refer to Matthew 17:24 to 27.
This involved another question by a tribute (tax) collector who was stationed at the gates of Capernaum, who asked Peter, “Does not your Master (Jesus) pay tribute?” for, in order to enter the city, the tribute was to be paid.
Peter, therefore, was about to pay this tax when Jesus prevented him and said, “What do you think, Simon (Peter), do the kings take tribute from their own children or from strangers?”

Again, we need to ascertain the reason for the question in the first place.
Bear in mind, Caesar was not only emperor, but a self-styled god to whom all paid tribute in return for their well-being (a bit like ‘protection’ money).    All, that is, except Caesar’s children, i.e. his sons.

Jesus asked Simon Peter His question because He wanted Simon to think!
If Caesar was king (emperor) and his children did not pay tax, how did that compare to God Almighty, King of all, and His children (followers)?

Simon Peter correctly answered Jesus by saying it was only the ‘strangers’ (i.e. those not of the royal household) who paid.
Jesus replied, “Then the children are free.”
What children?
The clear reference, of course, is that the King’s children (i.e. Christians) do not have to pay tribute (tax).
Nevertheless, rather than offend the tax collector and others who may have been present, Jesus agreed that a tribute should be paid.

Jesus did not pay tax! (Luke 23:2)    Despite the reason stated above, He did not pay tax because He asked nothing of Caesar (the government).    For us to follow Him, we should not accept Social Welfare or any other government ‘handout’, for these all come at the cost of tribute (Tax).

Stealing is not only an infringement against the Commandments but is a Common Law crime.

Taxes are totally unnecessary.
The prime purpose of taxation is for pagan establishments to gain CONTROL over its constituents.
“Progressive and increasing taxation” is one of the main planks of the “Communist Manifesto”, published by Karl Marx, in the 19th century.
Government steals the wealth and possessions of its sovereign people for the sole purpose of CONTROL.
Nothing has changed since Caesar’s day!

From the above, it can only be determined that the decision to pay tax is optional.
If one considers themself to be a child of God – the Supreme King – (i.e. a Christian), then an exemption applies, just as it did with Caesar’s children.
Needless to say, however, this does not go down too well with the hypocritical and demonstrably pagan rulers that now abound.

Today, we live in a revitalized Roman Empire.
The rapidly forming so-called New World Order will usher in the same, or worse, sort of situation that existed in Caesar’s day.

Once that Satanic system is fully instituted, some very testing decisions will be required of everyone who professes to be a true Christian.
What we successfully do today enables us to better perform tomorrow.
By rejecting Caesar’s demands for taxation, we strengthen our resolve for more difficult decisions later on, especially those relating to “the mark” which the demonic rulers intend to apply in the foreseeable future.

Crazy Hit Counters
