The True Scriptures are Genesis to the 3rd Gospel, traditionally called ‘Luke’. One way we know this is because of the contradictions between the books after Luke and the books in the True Canon of Scripture Genesis to Luke. There are many clear contradictions comparing verse vs. verse. There is also huge doctrinal differences, for example how one is saved. In ‘John’ and Paul, salvation is by faith and grace. In the True Scriptures, salvation is based on what you do, and ‘grace’ is never mentioned.
Is John the Baptist Elijah?
Added Text: In ‘John’, John the Baptist says he is not Elijah.
John 1.21 “And they asked him, ‘What then? Art thou Elijah?’ And he saith, ‘I am not.’”
In the Synoptics, the 3 True Gospels, Jesus says he is Elijah:
The Angel, Quoting the Prophecy in Malachi said to John’s father concerning John:
“And he shall go before him with the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord“.
Jesus further makes it clear that the wicked killed Elijah when they killed John:
Mark 9:11 – 9:13
“And they asked him[Jesus], saying, ‘Why say the scribes that Elijah must come first?’
And he answered and told them, ‘Elijah verily comes first, and restores all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nothing.
But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they wanted, as it is written of him.’”
“Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
“Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things. But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him but did to him whatever they wished. Likewise the Son of Man is also about to suffer at their hands.’ Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist.”
Also, John the Baptist and Elijah both wore a leather belt and a hairy shirt.
Matthew 3:4 KJV – And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
2 Kings 1:8 ESV – They answered him, “He wore a garment of hair, with a belt of leather about his waist.” And he said, “It is Elijah the Tishbite.”
Common rebuttal is, “John was Elijah metaphorically”.
Answer: When Jesus says Elijah has come and they did to him whatever they wanted, it can’t be a metaphor. John was beheaded in reality, not metaphorically. When it says John came “with the spirit….of Elijah”, Elijah only has one spirit. This “spirit” is not used like people use it today, metaphorically, It means his actual spirit.
“That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they wanted, as it is written of him.”-Jesus
To be clear, if Elijah didn’t come before Jesus, then Jesus is not the Messiah.
Has anyone ascended up to Heaven?
THE ADDED TEXTS: The author of John says no
John 3:13 KJV
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
TRUE SCRIPTURE: The author of 1st Kings says yes
2 Kings 2:11 KJV
And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
Was Jesus’ ministry 1 year or 3 years?
Jesus’ ministry in John was 3 years:
We know this because there are 3 Passovers. In the Synoptic Gospels Jesus Ministry is one year. In each one there is one passover.
Also the length of One Year was prophesied. In the 3rd Gospel ‘Luke’ Jesus quotes prophecy and says:
Luke 4.18 “The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he hath anointed me to…preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” – Jesus
Can the world hate Jesus’ disciples?
The author of ‘John’ says “no”, and then contradicts the same book:
John 7:7 KJV
The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
Later in ‘John’ we read this:
John 15:19 KJV
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Jesus in the 3 True Gospels, is clear, the world will hate you:
Matthew 10:22 KJV
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Matthew 24:9 KJV
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
Mark 13:13 KJV
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Luke 21:17 KJV
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
The True Scriptures, Genesis to the 3rd Gospel have men seeing God. John says no one has.
Genesis 12:7 And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the Lord, who appeared unto him.
Genesis 48:3 And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me.
Exodus 24:10 And they saw the God of Israel: and [there was] under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in [his] clearness.
Numbers 12:8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
Deuteronomy 5:4 The Lord talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire,
Isaiah 6:5 Then said I, Woe [is] me! for I am undone; because I [am] a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.
Matthew 5:8 Blessed [are] the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Matthew 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
The Added Texts say no man has seen God:
John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared [him].
John 6:46 KJV – Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
1 Timothy 6:16 KJV – Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
1 John 4:12 KJV – No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
Did Jesus say he would raise the Temple in 3 days?
The three Gospels call it “false testimony”, ‘John’ has it coming from Jesus’ mouth.
In the True gospels the narrator calls it false testimony that Jesus said he would raise the temple up in 3 days:
Matthew 26:59-61 NASB Now the chief priests and the whole Council kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, so that they might put Him to death. They did not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. But later on two came forward, and said, “This man stated, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and to rebuild it in three days.’”
Mark 14:57-58 NASB Some stood up and began to give false testimony against Him, saying, “We heard Him say, ‘I will destroy this temple made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands.’”
But whoever wrote ‘John’ (along with not knowing John the Baptist is Elijah), PUTS THIS FALSE TESTIMONY INTO THE MOUTH OF JESUS:
Jesus answered them,
John 2:19 KJV Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
In John the resurrected Jesus says not to touch him, in the true Gospels they held him by the feet
Matthew 28:9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God.
Should Men be circumcised?
True Scriptures say Yes. Jesus reconfirmed it by saying “every jot and tittle” of the law is in affect until “Heaven and Earth pass away”.
Leviticus 12:3 KJV And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
Joshua 5:3 KJV And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.
Matthew 5:17 – 19 KJV – Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Added texts say you don’t have to get circumcised. Paul goes so far as to say if you do, “Christ will profit you nothing”.
Galatians 5:2 KJV Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
Is Jesus Good? Jesus says no.
True Scriptures have Jesus saying only God is good.
Matthew 19:17 KJV And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
Mark 10:18 KJV And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
Luke 18:19 KJV And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.
The added texts say there are good people, Jesus himself calling himself Good.
John 10:11 KJV I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
John 10:14 KJV I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
How many teachers does a Disciple have? Jesus says One
Matthew 23:8 NKJV “But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren.
Matthew 23:10 NKJV “And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.
The added texts say there are other teachers other than Jesus:
1 Timothy 2:7 NKJV for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle–I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying--a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
2 Timothy 1:11 NKJV to which I was appointed a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
Ephesians 4:11 NKJV And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
Hebrews 5:12 NKJV For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
CONTRADICTIONS BETWEEN THE ADDED TEXTS (John – Revelation) THEMSELVES
Is one Justified By Works?
James 2:24 “Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.”
Works + Faith = Justified
Romans 4:5 “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”
Faith – works = Justification
Can we eat food offered to idols?
In this one we see the council in Jerusalem in Acts come to the decision that the Church must keep three commandments.
Acts 15:28-29 NKJV – 28 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: 29 that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.
It is clear in these verses that the writer wanted the reader to think that the “holy ghost” chose these laws.
But Paul in his letter to the Corinthians dismisses this commandment as one kept only by weak people:
1 Corinthians 8:1-13 NKJV – 1 Now concerning things offered to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies. 2 And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. 3 But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him. 4 Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), 6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live. 7 However, there is not in everyone that knowledge; for some, with consciousness of the idol, until now eat it as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. 8 But food does not commend us to God; for neither if we eat are we the better, nor if we do not eat are we the worse. 9 But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak. 10 For if anyone sees you who have knowledge eating in an idol’s temple, will not the conscience of him who is weak be emboldened to eat those things offered to idols? 11 And because of your knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? 12 But when you thus sin against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. 13 Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never again eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble.
After Paul’s experience of Jesus on the road to Damascus, did he see the Disciples right away? Or did he go away for 3 years?
‘PAUL’ IN GALATIANS : Galatians 1:17-19 KJV – 17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. 18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. 19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.
PAUL IN ACTS: Acts 9:8-15, 17-20, 26-28 KJV – 8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. 9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink. 10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. 11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, 12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. 13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: 14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: … 17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. 18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized. 19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus. 20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God. … 26 And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple. 27 But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus. 28 And he was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem.
Contradictions: Between the True and added texts
Paul contradicting Yahweh: Was Abraham chosen because of his obedience or his faith?
TRUE: Genesis 26:4-5 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.“
“because that Abraham…kept…my law” – YAHWEH
Romans 4:13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, [was] not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
“was not…through the law”.
Jesus commanded us to Baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Acts just has “in the name of Jesus”:
Matthew 28:19 KJV – 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Acts 2:38 KJV – 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Acts 8:16 KJV – 16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
