The Four ĎWís Of Christís Crucifixion
Page 5

When Did Satanís Seed Conspire To Kill Christ?

The conspiracy to kill Christ took place on the Passover feast. The court transcripts, which is the Holy Scripture, clearly identified the high priest, who is called Caiaphas, the chief priests, scribes, and elders as the co-conspirators who secretly conspired to murder our Lord and Savior.

Matthew 26:1-2-And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these saying, He said unto His disciples, Ye know that after two days is the feast of the Passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

Here two days prior to the Passover, Jesus took that time alone with His disciples to prophesy to them His death by crucifixion. The fulfillment of Jesus prophecy was expedited the moment the priests, scribes, and elders took council together to plot His murder.

Matthew 26:3-4-Then assembled together the chief priests, and scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill Him.

The word Ďsubtiltyí in Greek means, "by deceit." (Strongís #1388)

Matthew 26:59-61-Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put Him to death; But found none: yea though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last two false witnesses, And said, "This fellow said, ĎI am able to destroy the Temple of God, and to build it in three days." (Mark 14:55-58)

It is written in the law, at the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. (John 8:13-18 - 2 Corinthians 13:1 - Matthew 18:16 - Deuteronomy 17:6 - Deuteronomy 19:15). The priests and elders of the Sanhedrim court knew this law pertaining to two witnesses very well, and they used that knowledge to present perjured testimony from the mouth of two false witnesses, who accused Jesus of saying, "I am able to destroy the Temple of God, and to build it in three days." However, in the prosecutionís examination of Jesus Christ testimony the scripture clearly show that Jesus said, "destroy you the Temple, and I will build it in three days" (John 2:18-21). The perjured testimony that the chief priest, elders, and scribes offered to incriminate Jesus Christ, is a significant sign that the apple donít fall far from the tree? Just as Satan twisted the scripture by omitting essential words in his temptation of Jesus in the wilderness (Luke 4:9-11 - Matthew 4:5-6 - Psalms 91:11-13), his children likewise are guilty by omission when they misquoted what Christ had said concerning the Temple of God. By hook or crook, this demonic priesthood was determined to drum up false charges against our Savior.

Matthew 26:64-66-Jesus saith unto him, "Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven." Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now ye have heard His blasphemy. What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. (Leviticus 21:10)

Stoning was the Jewish law for blasphemy. Crucifixion was the Roman law for sedition. My question is, if blasphemy was the sin that Jesus was charged with, then why was He crucified? The high priest knew that the Romans would never crucify Jesus for blasphemy under Roman law, so he went to Pilate and accused Jesus of sedition which was a crime against the Roman government.

Luke 23:1-4-And the whole multitude of them arose, and led Him unto Pilate. And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ a King. And Pilate asked Him, saying, "Art thou the King of the Jews? And He answered him and said, "Thou sayest it. Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, "I find no fault in this Man" (Luke 20:19-26).

Pontius Pilate the sixth Roman Governor of Judea, saw through their lies and found no fault with Jesus, and delivered Him back to the priests to be judged according to Jewish law. Jesus took this opportunity to tell us beforehand the kind of death in which He would die (John 12:27-33).

John 18:31-32-Then said Pilate unto them, "Take ye Him, and judge Him according to your law." The Jews therefore said unto Him, "It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:" That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which He spake, signifying what death He should die.

Once again this priesthood, true to the character of their father (John 8:39-44), lied when they said. "It is not lawful for us to put any man to death." Lets test that statement in the light of Godís Word to see if death by stoning for the sin of blaspheme was forbidden by Godís law.

Leviticus 24:15-16-And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, "whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin. And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the LORD, shall be put to death.

The false Jews that lied when they said, it is not lawful to put a man to death for blasphemy, are tithe paying members of Satanís synagogue. (Revelation 2:8-9 & Revelation 3:7-9). The True Jews knew that stoning for the sin of blasphemy was the correct punishment under Levitic Law.

John 10:31-33-Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, "Many good works have I shewed you from My Father; for which of those works do ye stone Me?" The Jews answered Him, saying, "For a good work we stone Thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that Thou, being a man, makest Thyself God."
