James the Just Remix 


I ended my last post with a quote from BrotherOfYeshua.com, a...um..."interesting" site. This guy claims to be the reappearance of James the Just, but whether he's representational (as John the Baptist was of Elijah) or reincarnational (which would be, to put it mildly, unorthodox) is not clear. Here's his biography:


At the beginning of our Common Era, I lived as Jacob who you call James. At that time I was known as the brother of Yeshua/Jesus, and I was the first and primary leader of the New Covenant Movement known as TheWay (The Way). This web site on Law, and the coming destruction of America and the Constitution, is based upon my Spiritual Knowledge and Understanding of the Laws that control life here on earth. On this web site I pay particular attention to the United States and the Constitution, because both myself and the original disciples of Yeshua/Jesus have entered into this world many times in order to bring about changes for the good of mankind. Thus, as a group we entered into life in the 1700's in order to change the course of men's lives in this world, and form a government that was founded upon Spiritual values and structure where freedom, genuine knowledge and wisdom could flourish. As a group, we created a Constitutional form of government where man could draw closer to his own higher spiritual reality. But like the religion which today calls itself Christian, man soon corrupted the foundation of the Constitution in much the same way the Church is corrupted today....


So let's look at the Constitutional form of government, and who founded it...hey! It's those Deists and Masons. Huh?


Our Constitutional Founding Fathers were Deists and Masons who understood the Laws that control this world. The writings of Thomas Paine formed the bedrock of our Constitution. Paine was a Deist, likely a Mason like Franklin, Jefferson and Washington and others who valued the Masonic teachings on democracy, which often stemmed from The Enlightenment thinkers in France and England -- men like Rousseau and Burke. But there was much about these men that is not understood today. Deists viewed the Godhead as a Divine Intelligence that set the universe in motion and gives us freewill without interceding in human affairs -- and their pattern of life is drawn directly from the pages of the Bible.


And...um...some other sources.


Deists generally believe that human beings are naturally capable of experiencing the Essence of God within, without the need for any intermediary priests, clergy or church. Opposing any prince or king where one man is upheld above another by some inferred divine right, Paine was decidedly anti-church, both Protestant and Catholic, and this is evidenced by his later writings.


And here's the cap - Jesus didn't believe in Christianity:


Yeshua/Jesus did not come to promote belief in the Messiah/Christ - neither did he come to promote the worship of Messiah/Christ - Yeshua/Jesus came to teach the people TheWay to become Messiah/Christ, and fulfill the vision of a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation of Anointed (Messiah/Christ) Disciples who are set aside for the service of the Most High God that Yeshua taught was the Father of all of mankind....

[T]he majority of the Roman and Greek followers who were too Pagan to embrace the teachings of Yeshua, were not interested in a life of genuine change and spiritual transformation, so they made Jesus their God so they didn't have to pick up their own cross and follow in TheWay. Thus, the Church itself betrayed and crucified Messiah/Christ when it immersed itself in the way of the heathen, and worshiped the messenger instead of imitating the pattern and example that Yeshua set as the required standard for all those who called upon the name of the Lord.



Well, let's see what the real James said:


James 1:1

1James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations:
Greetings.

New International Version (NIV)
Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society
James 2:1

1My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism.

New International Version (NIV)
Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society
James 5:7

7Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains.

New International Version (NIV)
Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society



James does not appear to refer to Jesus as some type of superior model. And of course, there's Jesus' reference to Himself:


John 8:58 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)
Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society

58"I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!"



And:


John 14:6 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)
Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society

6Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.



So much for James the Deist. But what name does the Brother of Yeshua use in his present incarnation? According to a Network Solutions search, his name is Allan Cronshaw:

More information on Allan Cronshaw can be found at ebionite.com:


The below web sites are written in the name of Allan Cronshaw, which is my birth name in this present life. The manner in which these other web sites are composed is very different than on this one -- wherein, on these other web sites there is an attempt to document and demonstrate every proof and concept of TheWay using a multitude of resources and biblical verses -- while on this web site there is no other authority than Jacob writing to you as the Brother Of Yeshua who was the leader of the Hebrew/Christian movement of TheWay.


Cronshaw - I mean Jacob - sums up Ebionite thought as follows:


You have reached the Ebionite/Nazirene Spiritual Restoration HomePage

The Ebionites are the Genuine People of the New Covenant

Unless you are an Ebionite
You Cannot be a Disciple of Yeshua/Jesus...

If you call yourself a Christian, Jew, Messianic believer, Evyonim, Nazarene or Muslim,

then it is imperative that you learn of the Ebionites who are True Spiritual Israel

-- They are the Poor Ones to the ways and thinking of this world --

The Ebionites were the Israelites of the Nazirene Vow

They are/were the Genuine Disciples of Yeshua/Jesus who are in the world and not of it!



Throughout this page and his other works, Cronshaw uses the spelling "Nazirene." One web site notes that "Nazirene" and "Nazarene" are two different words:


The word Nazirene comes from the biblical term Nazir, which denotes one who is under a vow....

A Nazirite was one who was Anointed by the Lord to teach or free His people from enslavement to the forces of this world....

A Nazir or Nazirene, is one who takes a vow to abstain from the things of this world, and consecrate himself to God. A Nazirene has always been used in reference to a Holy Man who possessed the gift of spiritual vision, knowledge, prophesy, psychic perception and ecstatic insight into man's higher reality. Another important element in the term Nazir is its linguistic relation to the words Nezer and Netzer -- meaning one of whom it can be said that they represent a militant message of freedom from "worldly Kings" and their secular wickedness....

The Term Nazarene Is Counterfeit!
As a geographical place, Nazareth did not exist

The references in the Gospels are to a spiritual Nazireth -- the Nazirene Vow

The evidence for a 1st century town of Nazareth does not exist – not literary, not archaeologically, and not historically.

Biblical scholars and clergy alike have always had difficulty accepting the possibility that at the time of Jesus there was no city called “Nazareth.” They have always resisted this possibility and sometimes, quite vigorously.

The Encyclopaedia Biblica, a work written by theologians, and perhaps the greatest biblical reference work in the English language, says: "We cannot venture to assert positively that there was a city of Nazareth in Jesus' time."

Nazareth is not mentioned in any historical records or biblical texts of the time and receives no mention by any contemporary historian. Nazareth is not mentioned in the Old Testament, the Talmud (the Jewish law code), nor in the Apocrypha and it does not appear in any early rabbinic literature.

Nazareth was not included in the list of settlements of the tribes of Zebulon (Joshua 19:10-16) which mentions twelve towns and six villages, and Nazareth is not included among the 45 cities of Galilee that were mentioned by Josephus (37AD-100AD), a widely traveled historian who never missed anything and who voluminously describes the region. The name is also missing from the 63 towns of Galilee mentioned in the Talmud.

The first reference to Nazareth is in the New Testament where it can be found 29 different times. However, there is still cause for speculation as to whether or not the city existed at the time of Jesus. It is mentioned only in the Gospels and Acts. These books do refer to Nazareth, but they did not originate at this time, they are later writings. The earlier writings of the NT (Paul etc) mention Jesus 221 times - but never mention Nazareth.

The word Nazarene also shares the same root as Nazirite and Nazirene, which means that they share something in common. It is believed that it was a common practice for many, if not all new Male believers in Yeshua, to take the vow of the Nazirite. After all Yeshua himself was a Nazirite and the Scripture says that we ought to live as he did: "He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked" (1 John 2:6 NKJ).



So the person who changed water into wine was a Nazirite? And the writer who advised Timothy to drink wine was a Nazirite?

Comments:
When Christians begin to learn the meaning of the words that the followers of Jesus will do greater works than he did, only then will they begin to understand that Jesus is the pattern -- the first of the prodigal sons to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination ( http://GateOfEden.com -- only then will they begin to understand the teachings of Jesus and TheWay. Fundamentally, the Gentiles were too heathen and pagan to understand the spiritual essence of these teachings -- and in the same way that they worshiped the sun and everything under it, including the emperor as god -- they in the same way worshiped Jesus the pattern that they were supposed to imitate as God. Jesus said: "Tell my brothers, I go you my Father and your Father, my God and your God" And while this reality could be clearer, you should have seen the scriptures before the Church of Constantine corrupted them ( http://BibleCorruption.com. Thus, there is quite a bit more to the story than in this James the Just Remix. But since the name was Jacob or Ya'kov, and my Brother's name was Yeshua, what do you expect of a people who can't even get the names right?
 
Wise Guys of Ancient History...what they did with each others and their own KNOWLEDGE will always be relevant to our present time. Egyptian/Mesopotamia; Greek/Arab/Hebrew/Christian (Hindu is in the mix somewhere). They all read and studied each others ancient texts and then would transcribe them into Latin and other languages. For example, George Sarton, 1884-1956, in "Science as Sanctity" from the book:"The Practical Cogitator or The Thinker's Anthology" '73 says (as soon as Latin Christians began to realize the importance of the Arabic literature....they longed for translations and did all they could to obtain them. By the end of the eleventh century their longing was partly fulfilled by Constantine the African, aptly called "magister orientis et occidentis"; he was indeed one of the great intermediaries between the East and the West. Constantine translated a a large number of Greco-Muslim works fron Arabic into Latin at the monestery of Monte Cassino, where he died in 1087. ....Arabic writings were not simply important but essential, for they contained vast treasures of knowledge, the accumulated learning and experience of the whole past. It is no exaggeration to say that during the twelfth century and down to about the middle of the thirteenth century the foremost activity of Christian scholars was the translation of Arabic treatises into Latin.)
Although this writer was comparing the progress of science methods over time, he discovered the course and pattern of discoveries within ancient religious cultural manuscripts which were shared, translated, copied and so forth. Then, Jesus came into the world. So, maybe we have vast resources to study and learn. However, I for one believe that the most important fact needed to keep me on the right path: Knowing that Jesus came into the world for me and you.
 
What a bunch of.....
 
For the record, only Brother of Yeshua has ever claimed that my postings are too brief. (For those who are interested, any one of his websites links to all of his other sites.)
 
That only confirms that he's full of it.
