"And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; these things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty. (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan."
Jesus said that these blasphemers who claim to be Jews (but are not) are actually devil worshipers. These devil worshipers with their esoteric teaching, (esoteric: restricted to the initiates: intended for or understood by only an initiated few. Abstruse: difficult to understand. Secret: secret or highly confidential.)
The LORD knew what they were doing, it was not hidden from Him. Their secret devil worshiping doctrine they were integrating into the worship of God, may have been hidden from others, but He saw it all and called it blasphemy. He said they are of the synagogue of Satan.
Synagogue : house of worship for Jewish congregation: a body of followers of Judaism who worship together.
Jesus said that these wolves in sheep clothing were not really Jews, but were imposters, workers of iniquity, unbelievers gathering themselves to believers. So who are the true Jews? There two different definition of the term Jew. There's man's definition, which is all over the place. Even the Jews themselves cannot come to any kind of consensus on the matter. Some Jews claims a Jew has to do with race, if either parent is a Jew then the person is a Jew. Others claim it's a religion, and if you don't belong to their particular group then you are not a Jew. Obviously wefll not going to get a definitive answer from man, so the only place to look for the answer is the place we should have looked in the beginning, the Word of God!
"For circumcision verily profited, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision." [Romans 2:25].
The Jews were known as the people of the circumcision, but if one becomes a law breaker he is the same as if he is uncircumcised , a non Jew. Even though you are born of the Jewish bloodline the Word of God says, if you continue in breaking the law you become as uncircumcised, non Jewish.
Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the Law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfill the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward which is in the flesh: BUT HE IS A JEW, WHICH IS ONE INWARDLY; AND CIRCUMCISION IS OF THE HEART, IN THE SPIRIT, AND NOT IN THE LETTER; WHOSE PRAISE IS NOT OF MEN, BUT OF GOD. [Romans 2:229].
They believe that just because they were born into the Jewish bloodline they are automatically inheritors of the Kingdom of God. Paul was driving home a point that the Jews just could not accept, that they were just like other men in need of the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ, the one they had murdered. This was unacceptable.
Thus began the hatred of Paul by the traditionalist. To them Jesus was sum, His mother a prostitute. [Jewish Talmud teaching].
You cannot be a true Jew and hate Jesus.
So just being born of Jewish parents does not make one a true Jew, the circumcision of the heart have nothing to do with the flesh. The true Jew is one in the spirit of Christ. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile in God's Kingdom. Both all are under sin and in need of a savior.
The Jews that were out to silence Christ thought because they were born of the physical seed of Abraham, that made them automatically children of God. But Jesus told them even though they were of the seed of Abraham, their true father was Satan. And the works of their will do. They are of the Synagogue of Satan. What is the true Jew? One who loves Jesus, and Jehovah who sent Him. A true Jew wouldn't believe that Jesus is scum, as the Jews of the synagogue of Satan teach [Talmud and Kabbalah so-called Jews].
In the synagogue of Satan [Israel], not Judah, there is a differences], you always hear Jesus referred to by His Hebrew name Yehshua they try to avoid the use of the name of Jesus when in conversation with Christians. The reason is that they know that they are talking about one person, and the Christian is talking about someone altogether different. The Greek name for the messiah. "Jesus" means savior, ask any Kabbalalist, Talmud Jew, or any of the synagogue of Satan if Jesus is the savior of the world.
Don't get caught in their use of His Hebrew name. They hate the name of Jesus. "THE MARK OF THE BEAST"
Jesus said unto them, if God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded fort and came from God; neither came of Myself, but He sent me. Why do you not understand My speech? Even because ye cannot hear My word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is not truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, you believe Me not. Which of you convinceth Me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe Me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. [John 8:39-47.
Being born of Jewish blood did not make these haters of Jesus children of God, by their hatred of Jesus they prove themselves to be of the synagogue of Satan. There's nothing Satan hates more that Jesus, so his children share that hatred of Jesus. The Synagogue of Satan is the today children of the original Jewish priest and scribes that hated Jesus, and had Him murdered. This hatred has been passed down form generation to generation, to our present day, by what the Kabbalalist call the oral tradition. They are not looking for the return of Jesus, they are looking for the return of the anti-Christ, their savior!
"ISRAEL WAS REJECTED BY GOD, JUDAH WAS NOT!"
The problem comes in when we neglect to separate the two kingdom as God had done. Israel the northern kingdom was driven from God's sight. The southern kingdom Judah repented of its fall into the occult and was forgiven by God. The kingdom northern never repented, but went deeper and deeper into Satan worship and the world of the occult.
"Notwithstanding they not would hear, but hardened their necks, like to the necks of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God. And they rejected his statutes, and His covenant that He made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and the followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do like them. And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger. Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of His sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only. [2nd Kings 17:14-18].
The mistake we make is to group Israel and Judah, [Judah the true Jews] together when we speak of the Jews. One is loved of God [Judah] the other was driven form His sight [Israel]. The northern kingdom of Israel was no more a part of the house of David.
"For He rent Israel from the house of David, and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king. Jerboam drave Israel from following the LORD, and made them sin a great sin." [2nd Kings 17:21].
"And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until He cast them out of His sight." [2nd Kings 17:20].
Once driven from God's sight, there was nowhere left for Israel to go but to their father Satan, that's who Jesus said their Father was. Once Israel was driven from the sight of the LORD, they when into the open arms of their lover Satan! THEY BECAME THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN! It was that group of liars that called themselves Jews, which they were not, it was them that controlled the synagogue when Jesus came to His Father's house and droved them out. That synagogue became the synagogue of Satan, it was defiled and had to be destroyed.
TODAY THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN IS THE TALMUD AND KABBALAH SO-CALLED JEWS! THE TRUE JEW IS OF THE LINE OF JUDAH, NOT OF ISRAEL!
