The spirit of murder


Shemoth (Exodus) 20:13 You shall not kill. ( לא רתצח ) (lo ratsach).

Mattithyahu (Matthew) 5:21-22  
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, You shall not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, You fool, shall be in danger of the fire of Gey Hinnom.     

This term raca goes without identification in the Hebrew. Strong’s claims the word has a Chaldee origination, meaning: worthless one.  However, we can see in the tedushah of the term that the Hebrew would yield a similar conclusion, spelling the word (רכע) resh-kaph-ayin.  So, we see that neither the head (resh) nor the palm of the hand (kaph) mean anything (ayin).

Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23:29-33
Woe unto you, scribes and Parashiym, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of Gey Hinnom?

Now, what is this spirit of murder – this spirit that drives a person to call another worthless or a fool?  

We see the spirit of murder all of the time, particularly in social media, where one believer ruthlessly attacks another with a spirit of murder, a spirit expressed in words that, were it to be translated into a physical confrontation, a knife would be found between the other person’s shoulder blades.  The desire to kill is easily seen in the words expressed.  

For instance, when someone finds one word or one phrase, or perhaps one verse number in the Eth CEPHER that disagrees with their view on how it should be written, phrased, or numbered, we get responses such as:

“Blasphemer” “Heretic” “You should burn in the lowest level of hell for eternity”

And so on.  

Worse, we have had people condemn us to spiritual death because they heard someone else call us blasphemers, heretics, idiots, fools, worthless people, and so on, not because they became convicted as a result of their own research. They simply repeat what they have heard.  

For instance, we have been called “Trinitarians” by those who hate Trinitarians.

We have been called “anti-trinitarians” by Trinitarians.  Bear in mind that there is no footnoted commentary in the text.

Most importantly, there are those who make claims about the content of the Eth CEPHER, without having read a word of it.  [The preface can be downloaded for free on the website, as can many samples of Scripture]. Yet, in their abject ignorance, they still condemn us. And given the bile found in the vitriol, I am personally convinced that if I were tied to a wooden chair sitting atop a pile of firewood, they would be the first to drop the lit match. 

Yahuchanon (John) 15:18-19
If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: את eth but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

Let’s review the fruit of this spirit of murder:

John Wycliffe
In 1401, an Anti-Wycliffite Statute was enacted which, given the premature death of John Wycliffe, extended the persecution intended for him to his followers. In 1408, the "Constitutions of Oxford" named John Wycliffe as a heretic, banned his writings, and claimed that the translation of Scripture into English by unlicensed laity was a crime punishable by charges of heresy. The Council of Constance declared Wycliffe a heretic on May 4, 1415, and banned his writings, excommunicating him retroactively and making him an early forerunner of Protestantism. The Council decreed that Wycliffe's works should be burned and his remains removed from consecrated ground. This order, confirmed by Pope Martin V, was carried out in 1428. Wycliffe's corpse was exhumed and burned and the ashes cast into the River Swift.  

Jan Hus
Jan Hus was a Czech priest influenced by John Wycliffe.  In 1403, Hus translated Wycliffe’s Trialogus into Czech and helped to distribute it. As a result, he was burned at the stake in Prague for heresy against the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church, including those on ecclesiology, the Eucharist, and other theological topics. 

William Tyndale
William Tyndale is well known for his translation of the Bible into English. He was influenced by the work of Desiderius Erasmus, who made the Greek New Testament available in Europe, by Martin Luther, and also by the previous work of Wycliffe.  Tyndale drew his translation directly from Hebrew and Greek texts, the first English translator to take advantage of the printing press, and first of the new English Bibles of the Reformation. In 1536, he was convicted of heresy and executed by strangulation, after which his body was burned at the stake. 

John Calvin
Following the publication of The Institutes of the Christian Religion, John Calvin became a wanted man, and was forced to flee France for Germany and then Switzerland with his brother and sister and two friends in 1536.  It is highly likely that if he had remained, he would have suffered the same fate as his followers, the Huguenots, who on the night of August 24, 1572, began to suffer systemic execution at the order of the king, who killed 5,000 to 30,000 leaders of the Calvinist movement in France.  

We conclude our discussion here with the knowledge that there are dark forces who apparently are greatly offended when Scripture appears in the English language. We note that English is the most widely spoken language internationally in the world today. Maybe this has something to do with the spirit which seeks to stop dissemination of Scripture into this language.  

Before leaving this topic, we take a moment to encourage people to consider the following instruction as to the kind of discussions we are to entertain:

Eph’siym (Ephesians) 4:11-15
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the qodeshiym, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of HAMASHIACH: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the belief, and of the knowledge of the Son of ELOHIYM, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of HAMASHIACH: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the Truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even HAMASHIACH:

Genetics in Scripture
