WHO ARE THE PHARISEES?
GOD is not a “MAN” that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent; hath he spoken and shall he not make it good?
The PHARISEES WORSHIPS A MASCULE GOD.
The PHARISEES have deceitfully conditioned man to believe in a masculine GOD who demands unquestioning obedience and who mercilessly punishes dissent—a GOD who reigns at the top of a Hierarchical government, far removed from the earth and all human kind.
The PHARISEES have conditioned man to believe that GOD is separate from the PHYSICAL WORLD.
That he made them (The PHARISEES) rulers over the PHYSICAL world, and that each race, gender, belief of class is ordered better than or less than the other. One must be superior to the other.
The PHARISEES conditions man to believe that GOD demands obedience and will mercilessly punish sinners.
MAN MUST FEAR HIS EARTHY RULER AS HE IS TO FEAR GOD
There is no understanding of shared authority and power with anyone. Between genders, one must be superior to the other and since GOD is male, the male must rule over the female.
WHO ARE “THE PHARISEES”
THE PHARISEES ARE THE DESCENDANTS OF
“CAIN AND JACOB”
THE CAIN STORY
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived and bare CAIN, and said, “I have gotten a man from The LORD.” And she again bare his brother ABEL. And it came to pass that CAIN said to his brother ABEL. “Let’s go out to the field” and while they were in the field, CAIN attacked his brother ABEL and killed him.
CAIN was selfish and greedy; there was no sharing of authority or supreme power on earth with his brother—so he attacked and killed his brother.
CAIN believed that there was only one GOD in heaven, so there could be only one supreme power on earth. Being the first born, he believed that it was his birth right to rule over the earth.
GOD drove CAIN, a murderer and a thief, away from the ground for killing ABEL. His brother and put on him a marking of a priest as a warning not to kill him.
CAIN took the form of “RELIGION”; and wandered over land and sea converting and brainwashing the Son of Man so that he would fear, love, obey and trust only him and be incapable of understanding what he himself sees or hears.
BE STILL, AND KNOW “I AM” GOD
Your brother came deceitfully and took your blessing. Esau said isn’t he rightly named JACOB? (JACOB means cheater) He has deceived me these two times. He took my birth right and now he has taken (stolen) my blessings. Then he asked haven’t you reserved any blessing for me?
Isaac answered Esau, I have made him LORD (master) over you and have made all his relatives his servants (slaves), and I have sustained him with grain and new wine. So what can I possibly do for you, my son?
Esau said to his father, do you have only one blessing? My Father: Bless me too, my Father! Then Esau wept aloud. His Father Isaac answered him, your dwelling will be away from the earth’s richness, away from the dew of heaven above (your life will be no life of ease and luxury). You will live by the Sword and you will serve your brother.
But when you grow restless you will throw his yoke from off your neck.
I HAVE SUSTAINED HIM WITH GRAIN AND NEW WINE.
The descendants of CAIN and JACOB are fugitives and vagabonds; but they live a life of ease and luxury. They travel over land and sea deceitfully. Conditioning (Brain washing) their brothers to provide them with this life of ease, luxury and power. As warriors, soldiers, crusaders, inquisitors, witch-hunters, mobs, etc. They amassed enormous wealth for The Roman Catholic Church, Protestant Reformation and The Catholic Counter Reformation.
Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: The Teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses seat.
So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy loads and put them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
Everything they do is done for show. They act HOLY by wearing on their arms little prayer boxes with scripture verses inside, and lengthening. The Memorial Fringes of their Robes.
They love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the Synagogues; they love to be greeted in the market places and to have men call them RABBI.
But you are not to call RABBI, for you have only one master and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth Father, for you have one Father, and he is in Heaven. Nor are you to be called Teacher, The CHRIST.
The greatest among you will be your Servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
Woe to you, Teachers of the Law and PHARISEES, you Hypocrites! You shut the Kingdom of Heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter. Nor will you let those who are trying to.
Woe to you, Teachers of the Law and PHARISEES you Hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are.
Sadducees and PHARISEES were the religious leaders during the time of JESUS.
Although they were frequently denounced together in the New Testament, they had little in common except their antagonistic feeling toward “THE WAY”- JESUS SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS.
When Paul perceived that one part were Sadducees and the other PHARISEES, he cried out in the council, brethren, I am a PHARISEES, a son of PHARISEES; with the respect to the hope and the resurrection of the dead, I am on trail, and when he had said this, a dissension arose between the Sadducees and the assembly was divided.
For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, nor angels, nor spirit; but the PHARISEES acknowledge them all.
The PHARISEES were the religiously educated group. And in their minds all who claimed to do the works of the LORD who were not members of the PHARISEES party—no matter how good the work was, were always of an Evil Power.
The PHARISEES were strict observers of the Mosaic Law, the traditions of the Elders, and their Theological Formalities, Customs and Beliefs and were characterized by Paul as the strictest sect of our religion. ACTS 26:5
“YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON (MONEY)”
The Sadducees adhered to the Old Testament (Torah of Mosaic Law) only in matters of morality and they had strong materialistic beliefs.
They had made their peace with the political rulers (Rome) and had attained positions of wealth and influence.
The aristocratic Sadducees Party was the party of the High Priests and every High Priest was drawn from its ranks. Temple administration and rituals were their specific responsibilities. The Sadducees held themselves aloof from the masses and were unpopular with them.
While the PHARISEES welcomed people, the Sadducees Party was closed. None but members of the “HIGH PRIESTLY” and aristocratic families could become members.
With the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70, the Sadducees joined THE PHARISEES
