The prophet Jeremiah, speaking in the name of YHWH said; “I will cause a Branch of righteousness to grow up to David.” That Branch is, of course, the Messiah. Through Jeremiah YHWH said that “at that time” when He would cause the Branch to spring up He would also take of David’s “seed to be rulers [plural] over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” In other words, it is prophesied that when Messiah would first come He would establish a Davidic administration for faithful Israel with Davidic “rulers” governing Israel under His Kingdom authority, after the pattern of the Davidic Kingdom as it had functioned from David forward. In this episode we will demonstrate from Scripture how this prophecy was fulfilled by Messiah and the “brothers of the Lord” in the first century.” New Testament” passages will be examined to learn how the brothers of the Lord functioned together under Messiah to “rule” the first century faithful remnant of Israel just as prophesied through Jeremiah. This truth is there, buried under a heap of self-perpetuating replacement theology and reinforced by subtle translation errors. You just have to know where to look for it. Now, after seventeen hundred years this truth is finally restored for the first time to those who will receive it – in this very program!
Wanna know someone? ..Read their mail! In this program we will open the mail of James the Just. “The Epistle of Clement to James” is only one of a number of Clementine letters that illuminates the role of James the Just among the early believers. Clement, who eventually became bishop of Rome, is reported to have been a disciple of Peter in the first century. In fact, the Roman Church calls Clement “Pope” in succession from Peter. In fact, Clement may be named by Paul in the “New Testament” Epistle to the Philippians 4:3. In the above named epistle of Clement he wrote to James the Just to report his ordination into office by Peter. This and other Clementine epistles gives us a view into the internal government of the early believers that many find quite surprising. In the salutation of Clement to James he calls James “bishop of bishops” and also repeatedly calls James “my lord” – and that is only the start of the surprises! Clearly, Clement reveals a mindset regarding James that is not familiar to believers today. You will likely be astounded by this historical look into the working government of the early believers – particularly as it pertains to James the Just. In the process you will learn how you have been robbed by the Roman Church!
