The Nazarene Acts
of the Apostles

Also known as
The Recognitions of Clement

Ever wonder why PAUL and not PETER received the mission to the lost tribes?  Wasn't Peter the stone upon which the "church" was to be built?  In this new translation of the Nazarene Acts, we follow Kefa (Peter) as he itinerates from Jerusalem and up the Mediterranean coast up to Tripoli, as recorded in the journals of his successor, Clement of Rome (Phi 4:3).  Every message Kefa preached, the company he kept, and the great works of faith the the Almighty accomplished through him are herein recorded.  This 300 page volume has been 'hidden' in the back of an obscure volume of the "Church Fathers" all this time.  Could it be that, in establishing the Gentile 'church' by pushing away from Judaism, this history was purposely hidden?

 

And Did Those Feet

William Blake (1757-1827)

edited jhs 2009

To the tune “Jerusalem”

 

And did those feet on ancient dates
Walk upon England’s mountain green?
And was the Lamb of Heaven's Gates
On England’s pleasant pastures seen?
And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem built here
Among our dark satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
To bring my chariot of fire!
I will not cease to haste the fight,
Nor will my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land.

 

O Day of Peace

Carl P. Daw, Jr. (b. 1944)

edited jhs 2009
To the tune “Jerusalem”

 

O day of peace that dimly shines

Through all our hopes and prayers and dreams,

Guide us to justice, truth, and love,

Delivered from our selfish schemes.

May swords of hate fall from our hands,

Our hearts from envy find release,

Till by His grace our warring world

Will see Messiah's reign of peace.

 

Then will the wolf dwell with the lamb,

Nor will the fierce devour the small;

As beasts and cattle safely graze,

A little child will lead them all.

Then enemies will learn to love,

All life receive its true acclaim;

The hope of peace will be fulfilled,

When all the world has learned His Name.

 

 

They who know your name will put their trust in you; for you,
           Yahweh, have not forsaken those who seek you.
(Ps 9:10)

Pour out your wrath on the heathen who do not know you,
           and upon the kingdoms that do not call upon your name.
(Ps 79:6)

So they may know that you alone, whose name is Yahweh,

           are the Most High over all the earth. (Ps 83:18)

 

Luke 21:10,11.  Then Yahshua said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; 11.  there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. 

Luke 1:15 For he will be great before Yahweh, and wine and strong drink he will by no means drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from his mother’s womb; 16 and many of the sons of Israel will he turn to Yahweh their Elohim; 17 and he will go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of fathers to children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready for Yahweh a people prepared. 

 

2 Kings 24:11.  And Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to the city, while his servants were besieging it;  12.  and Jehoiachin the king of Judah gave himself up to the king of Babylon, himself, and his mother, and his servants, and his princes, and his palace officials. The king of Babylon took him prisoner in the eighth year of his reign,  13.  and carried off all the treasures of the house of Yahweh, and the treasures of the king’s house, and cut in pieces all the vessels of gold in the temple of the Lord, which Solomon king of Israel had made, as Yahweh had foretold.  14.  He carried away all Jerusalem, and all the princes, and all the mighty men of valor, ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and the smiths; none remained, except the poorest people of the land.  15.  And he carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon; the king’s mother, the king’s wives, his officials, and the chief men of the land, he took into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon.  16.  And the king of Babylon brought captive to Babylon all the men of valor, seven thousand, and the craftsmen and the smiths, one thousand, all of them strong and fit for war.  17.  And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, Jehoiachin’s uncle, king in his stead, and changed his name to Zedekiah. 

 

Psalms 152, A Psalm of David (Orthodox Canon) 1. Eli! Eli!  O help me!  Aid me!  Rescue me!  Save me from these assassins!  Will I fall down to Sheol because of the lion’s mouth, or will the monster merely maim me?  3. Is it not enough that they feast on father’s flocks?  They crave my flesh as well!  4. O Yah, spare me!  Deliver your holy one from destruction so he can yet praise you all his days and glorify your magnificent name.  5.  When you have saved him from the mouths of vicious wolves, when you have rescued him from the maws of beasts, he will magnify you.  6.  Quickly, Master, send the Redeemer to raise me up from this gaping pit, which yearns to enclose me in its black depths.  (JSB)

Revelation 1:19.Write therefore the things that thou sawest, and the things that are, and those that will be after.

 

Review   Previous installments: 1  2  3  4

   This is the fifth in the series of messages I call “The Seeing Generation”; that is, the generation that would “not pass away till all has taken place” (Luke 21:32).  In the third and fourth installments, I outlined the Bible plan for how members of the seeing generation are to conduct their lives. 

   In the second installment, I showed you, if there were a false prophet or antichrist preaching in our generation, just exactly who that might be. 

   In the first installment, I outlined two of the greatest Biblical prophecies that’ve come to pass in our lifetimes, showing you just how we are to Yahshua’s Millennial rule. 

   (If you’d like a review of the last four installments, you may have a tape or transcript.)  But the most important point of all, you may remember, is that six thousand years has passed, and that we’ve counted these years, and that the “seventh prophetic day” is now upon us.   The seventh day is the Millennium of peace.  We should keep this fact in mind and stay awake and in the light.

   In this and future installments, I’ll call your attention to Bible prophecies that may have been fulfilled in our lifetime – or may be just coincidences.  My hope is to convince you to walk the walk of the Millennium now, whether you perceive the new thing it or not (Isaiah 42:8).  (This evening we’ll identify the beasts of Revelation 13, and next week we’ll look at some more prophetic coincidences.) 

 

Wars  But now, turn to:

Luke 21:10,11.  Then Yahshua said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; 11.  there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. 

The Messiah predicts a multiplicity of wars, earthquakes, famines, diseases and terrors coming out of the skies, with great signs.  Let’s take the first sign – wars – and reconsider what the seeing generation has experienced. 

   There’s never been a century like the 20th.  At its beginning, the 20th was hailed as “the Christian Century” – the century in which biblical values would surely penetrate the political establishments of the world, and through reasoned conversation, all war might cease; that peace would arise through the efforts of dedicated individuals, and that all powers might conscientiously decide to

beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: that nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war any more.” (Isaiah 2:4,5).

   But despite all good intentions, it was the bloodiest of the nineteen previous centuries put together.  All the nations rose up for world war that yet continues in our day.  In World Wars I & II alone, there were over 70 million casualties among armed forces.  This figure doesn't include civilians, such as death camp victims, nor those who died from any of the myriad regional wars in between,[i] nor those who succumbed to disease, starvation or the natural deprivations of war.   Over 70 million soldiers dead!

   The casualty count in twentieth century wars is greater than half the population of the earth on the day Yahshua predicted war.  Though wars have been waged since people lived in caves, there’s not been a bloodier century than that which was deemed “the Christian Century,” 

Revelation 14:20.  And blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse’s bridles.

 

The Sixth Trumpet

   Next, consider the word of the sixth angel:

Revelation 9 (excerpts) 13.  He/she blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the …  golden altar before Yahweh,  14.  saying to the sixth angel …, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”  15.  So the four angels were released, who had been held ready for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, to kill a third of mankind.  (How so?  How might a third of mankind be killed?)  16.  The … troops of cavalry was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number.  (That represents 200 million troops of cavalry.  The consequences?) 18. … a third of mankind was killed, by fire, smoke and sulphur ….  (That’s what we call gunpowder.  And what of the survivors?)  20.  The rest … did not repent … nor give up worshiping demons … 21.  nor … repent of their murders, sorceries, immorality or thefts.   (Ellipses {…} are for brevity of speaking.  Please study the entire passage.)

   Again, the number of troops counted by the Revelator was equal to the entire population of the earth in the first century; world population then was a little more that two hundred million.  John envisioned a time far into the future, a time like ours, when 33 times that number of people dwell – almost 6.5 billion.

   Think.  Seventy million uniformed casualties in the world wars of the twentieth century is exactly one third of all mankind in John’s day.  “Kill a third of mankind,” the angel of destruction commanded!  Yet no one in this “Christian Century” repented, despite the great signs of bombs falling from the skies – and life goes on today with nearly 100 wars being waged in diverse places, and 25 nations seeking weapons of mass destruction.  In fact, everyone is at war with a common and very demonic enemy – a worldwide terror network, that’s homicidal adherents follow the false prophet of Revelation 16:13. 

 

Hello,

There were 19 major armed conflicts in 2003. See Stockholm International Peace Research Institute “Yearbook 2004, Armaments, Disarmament and International Security,” page 10, 2004 http://editors.sipri.se/pubs/yb04/pr04.pdf

 

Of course there are many more small conflicts raging around the world. The above document is a good resource. Good luck!

    Are the predictions of the Bible about a warmongering world coincidental to our world, or is Yahshua Messiah drawing near, even entering through the gates?  (See my essay, This Means War! in Revelation Uncloaked,1999)  We pray with the prophet, “Maran atha!  Our Master is coming soon to bring peace and equitable justice!”  Hallelujah!  Amen.

 

Euphrates  (For fun, see “Predictions of the Apocalypse,” The Beacon Journal)

   Ur-Nammu ZigguratNow the United States and a small coalition of other powers are fighting the terror network in Iraq.  Iraq and its mighty river Euphrates figures very prominently in end-times prophecy.  We find the sixth angel of the Revelation standing over the Euphrates river during the uncertain days of world war.  The Revelator relates:

Revelation 16:12.  The sixth angel poured his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east. 

Before the angel pours his “bowl of dryness,” he/she/it declares, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates(Revelation 9:14).  These four angels wreak havoc on the earth and stir up nations to fight.  They’re either going forth in our day, or this is another great coincidence.

   The Euphrates River runs through modern-day Iraq, and has been “dried up” many times over the centuries to let armies through; and armies are crossing the Euphrates right now – a sign of the times.  In 2003, I watched the troops cross the Euphrates on their way to Baghdad from east to west, crowned ambassadors of war send from the Kings of the East.  American soldiers, and not a few.
   Let me offer you a journal entry written by Capt. Eric Lombardini, who served on the front lines of the advance toward Baghdad.  He’s inside the dry bed of the Euphrates River with his military unit.  In his journal, he refers to the Ziggurat of Ur, modeled after the Tower of Babel
(Genesis 10:8-10).  I might add that Ur is the place from which Abraham sojourned (Genesis 11:31).  Captain Lombardini is right there – and writes:

I am located just next to the Ziggurat of Ur, a structure built 2,300 years before the birth of Christ. [It’s] Daunting to see this massive pyramid, which can only evoke awe.  In its shadow are the foundation of a palace and a huge necropolis … a city dedicated to the dead.  And as you walk through its cavernous length, you look down at the bones and shards of pottery sticking out through the sand.  The Euphrates had once flowed over this area, but the passing millennia changed its course, leaving only evidence of its waters in the shells which stud the ground, acting as … jewelry to the … dead.

   This journal entry reminded me again of the prophetic word of Yahweh spoken through the prophet Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 51:35-37 (excerpts). Thus says Yahweh: “… I will dry up her sea and make her fountain dry; and Babylon will become a heap of ruins, the haunt of jackals, a horror and a hissing …” 

Captain Lombardini and his coalition traversed across the dried up Euphrates, past the pyramid of the moon goddess, on the way to tear down the Babylon of old, so ordered by the Kings of the earth.  O!  What a coincidence this is!

 

Babylon 1

   Babylon was the ancient foe of the whole biblical world; we read about her king, Nebuchadnezzar, and his conquest of Judea starting at 2 Kings 24.  Nebuchadnezzar carried off all the economically viable people, killing the nobility and leaving the common rabble behind.  About 600 years before Messiah, Yahweh was doing a great deal of speaking through his prophets, predicting Babylon’s great fall.  Isaiah was of that seeing generation.  Consider his dramatic prophecy from:

Isaiah 21:8.  He who saw cried: “Upon a watchtower I stand, O Yahweh, continually by day, and at my post I am stationed whole nights.  9.  And, behold, here come riders, horsemen in pairs!” And [Yahweh] answered, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the images of her gods he has shattered to the ground. 

   Jeremiah was also in that seeing generation, crying,

Jeremiah 51:47.  Behold, the days are coming when I will punish the images of Babylon; her whole land will be put to shame, and all her slain will fall in the midst of her.  48.  Then the heavens and the earth, and all that is in them, will sing for joy over Babylon; for the destroyers will come against them out of the north, says Yahweh.  49.  Babylon must fall for the slain of Israel, as for Babylon have fallen the slain of all the earth. 

   The fall of Babylon never fully came to pass.  The prophet of the New Testament, John the Divine, knows this: for, if we take him literally, he predicts Babylon’s fall as a future occurrence:

Revelation 14:6.  Then I saw [an] angel flying in midheaven, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and tongue and people;  7.  and he said with a loud voice, Fear Yahweh and give him glory, for the hour of his judgment has come …”  8.  A second angel followed, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of her impure passion. 

   During the course of salvation history, false worship and anti-Yahwist practices originated in Babylon and were perpetrated there for the last six thousand years.  And Babylonish practices are still common in the Christian Church today – too many to cite here.  If there was any doubt about when Babylon was to fall, there’s no doubt now.  At least one Babylon has fallen and is being rebuilt – that Babylon is Iraq.  What a prophetic coincidence!

 

Babylon 2

   But there’s another, far newer Babylon that recently fell, and the fall of the new was instrumental in the felling of the ancient Babylon.  Consider three clips of prophecy:

Isaiah 13:19-22.  And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms … will be like Sodom and Gomorrah when Elohim overthrew them.  … Wild beasts will lie down there, and its houses will be full of howling creatures ….  Hyenas will cry in its towers, and jackals in the pleasant palaces. 

We remember that Sodom was destroyed for the wickedness of its governors by fire that fell from heaven.  The seeing generation has witnessed fire fall upon Babylon.  Hyenas are crying from the shattered palaces; many houses are full of howling creatures, human and otherwise.

   The fall of Babylon will mark a new day for the people of Israel – people who’ve continually been threatened by Babylonian kings.  Isaiah goes on to speak of them:

Isaiah 30:19-25 (excerpts).  O people in Zion … you will weep no more.  [Yahweh] will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when he hears it, he will answer you.  … Your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it.” …  In that day your cattle … will eat salted hay …  And upon every … hill there will be brooks running with water, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 

Did you notice how this wonderful word took a 180-degree turn at the end?  All will prosper, says the prophet, when the towers of Babylon fall.

   One website is devoted to letting young people write up their remembrances of 9-11.  A young lady wrote:

I was still a grade 11 student …. Many of us had no idea what had happened until … the principal came onto the PA ….  The principal told everyone to … listen carefully. He says, “People have been going home due to what has happened … today.  Please note that if you leave school grounds, you will be suspended ….” Everyone was asking the teacher what [the principal was] talking about, and she suddenly replied, ‘Apparently terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon.’  … At first people were like, ‘What is the World Trade Center?’ and then she replied with the 3 words that still ring in my head to this day – [she said] ‘The Twin Towers.’”                 

   Yes, when we hear the word “fall” in Bible prophecy, our minds automatically fall upon Babylon, especially through the Jeremiads; Jeremiah likewise prophesied the word of Yahweh, that:

Jeremiah 51:49.  Babylon must fall …. Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify her strong height, yet destroyers would come … upon her, says Yahweh.

   Like the eleventh grader, when we think of the heights of Babylon and their falling, we remember 9-11 – the falling of great towers and the thousands of casualties from among all the peoples of earth, may they rest in peace.  We still know very little about “The World Trade Center” – but a lot about “The Twin Towers.”

 

Two Babylons Fallen!

   A local fellow came to the parsonage this week, and he began to talk about the World Trade Center – it’s function in the buying and selling of world goods.  “Babylon is fallen,” he said.  “That’s in Revelations.”  I corrected him, “You mean Revelation, not Revelations.”  “Yeah,” he said.  “But Babylon’s all about merchandising.”  I replied, “That’s right.  Let’s find the passage you quoted.”  Then we got on the computer Bible and brought up Revelation 18.

Revelation 18:2. And [an angel] called out with a mighty voice, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! It has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt of every foul spirit, of every foul and hateful bird.  4.  Then I heard another voice … saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, 8.  so will her plagues come in a single day, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned with fire; for mighty is Yahweh Elohim who judges her.”  11.  And the merchants of the earth weep … for her, since no one buys their cargo … 12.  … of gold, silver, jewels and pearls, fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet, all kinds of scented wood, … ivory, … costly wood, bronze, iron and marble,  13.  cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and … human souls.  15.  The merchants … who gained wealth from her, will stand far off …, weeping and mourning aloud,  [saying] 17.  In one hour all this wealth has been laid waste.”

   Of course, this fellow and me thought of similarities between this falling Babylon and the World Trade Center catastrophe.  This Babylon of scripture is all about high towers and trade agreements.  And when its towers fell, who was most distressed?  Why, merchants, of course.  What offices were in the World Trade Center?  There were hundreds of merchants offices, what do you suppose?  Gold, silver, jewels, pearls, fine linen, purple, silk, scarlet, scented wood, ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron, marble, cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle, sheep, horses, chariots – and human souls. 

   What an incredible coincidence?  The literal and the figurative Babylons both falling within a couple years – connected in our minds with history – and closely related to predictions made thousands of years ago about the return of Yahshua Messiah, King of Kings.  I wonder, what coincidence will next occur?  What serendipitous scenario will next unfold? 

   Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. 

   In this generation of daily catastrophe and hourly miracle, is it so hard to believe that your Savior is near?  No it’s not.  What’s hard to believe is that so many simply say, “What a coincidence,” then go about their business; their business of – 

Matthew 24:38-44 (excerpts) eating, drinking, marrying until the flood came, and took them all away; so will also the coming of the Son of man be.  Two will be in the field; one will be taken away, the other left.  Two will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken away, the other left.  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, if the good man had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched.  Therefore be ye also ready.

 

Burden for Babylon: Isaiah 13 & 14 in verse

 

I. YeshaYahu 13

On the hilltop, raise a signal, cry aloud; O, cry aloud!

Wave the hand for them to enter those great gateways of the proud.

I myself, I commanded all my Consecrated Clans;

I have summoned mighty forces to execute my plans.

 

Hear the shofar on the hilltop?  Hear the loud, vast multitude?

Hear the uproar of the kingdoms; hear their forces on the move?

Yah of hosts is drafting armies from prophetic, distant lands,

From the ends of these great heavens, weapons in their hands.

 

Wait, Chaldea; wait Basorah; for the day of YAH has come

With destruction, occupation, flags and fury, fife and drum.

All the forces of the future I will use to punish you.

Are you haughty?  Are you ruthless?  Haughty?  Ruthless?  I AM too.

 

Next the Persians, in their boasting, I will call into the fray.

They are heartless; seized by demons; without mercy or delay.

Not a shepherd, not a migrant will take refuge – but the owl.

Owls and satyr, foul hyenas, and the jackals – how they howl!

 

CODA:

So Babylon the glorious, splendiferous and crowned

Is now like Sodom and Gomorra since El burned them down.

The time, no longer close at hand, the time has long since passed,

And yet another Word fulfilled; fulfilled, Tzedekah, at last.

 

II.  YeshaYahu 14

 

Yahweh has had great compassion on Zion;

He chose Israel and set her in her land.

Even aliens and strangers will cleave to Bet Yaakov

And the people who dwell there will lend her the hand.

 

Yahweh will rest you from all of your turmoil;

He’s healed the pain from all your grievous work.

Then they will take up the song of the King of Babylonia:

O how you have fallen from the heights unto the earth.

 

Is this the fellow who made nations tremble?

Is this the fellow who shook our precious homeland?

Is this the devil who massacred our children?

Is this the satan that turned out seas to sand?

 

Yahweh prepared for this slaughter of the children;

Udai and Kusai; upon the reddened ground.

O, Son of Dawn, you have laid your people low,

Hanged with a hemp by the neck then cut down.

 

Yahweh prepared great successors for your palace:

Sir Hedgehog will lead from the Throne of Swimming Pool.

Yah will divide Babylon till the name is abhorred;

Once forgotten, no posterity or remnant for Abdul.
