HOW WE NOW THAT
JESUS WAS NOT THE MESSIAH!
"Behold, the days are coming, says YHVH, when I shall raise up to David a righteous shoot, and he will reign as king and succeed, and will execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days (not at his "second coming", but in his natural lifetime!) Judah will be saved (rescued) and Israel (the Ten Tribes) will dwell in safety. And this is his name by which he will be called: "YHVH is our JUSTICE". Jeremiah 23:5-6.
Jesus was NOT descended from David; he was fathered by an unidentified "ghost" (Matthew 1:18). His mother's origin was both unknown and irrelevant, since descent is traced through the father! (see Matthew 1, Luke 3, First Chronicles 1, etc.) He never reigned as a king, nor did he succeed! He was murdered by the Roman oppressors of his people. He did NOT "execute justice", but was himself executed! Judah was NOT rescued in his day. Judah was subjugated and despoiled in his day! Israel did NOT dwell in safety but was lost in exile in his day! His name was NOT "YHVH is our Justice" but "Jesus" for he was to have saved his people from their sins (Matthew 1:21), WHICH HE DIDN'T!!
The true Messiah's identity will be established by his accomplishments, and there will be no need for millions of missionaries and missions to convince mankind that he is really the messiah. His acts will speak for themselves!
THINK UPON IT!
