Where did religion start from? Was Judaism and Christianity made up?


➖As Todd Aaron has brought to our attention. All so often we hear people quote "well religions and the flood story existed before Judaism" then proceed to announce Mesopotamia, Egypt, Assyria, Persia, and other civilizations had religions before Judaism and Christianity. But how true are these facts? We will dive into this subject briefly to explain. In fact there was only one flood story yet various civilizations through spreading the word verbally like a game of telephone, the story always ended up different throughout cultural cities, kings and it's leaders. Yet there is only one true flood story and language which was written before the flood! Remember the languages were changed by God after Babylon. 🔹As we proceed Nimrod deceived many and made God out to be evil for causing a worldwide catastrophic flood and introduced many to various gods while people believed he was a god himself and ruled with the gods. In fact people believed nimrod to have killed God. As with the different civilizations within Mesopotamia there was always told a different flood story but always similar. There was also a creation story involving multiple gods, and as we find modernists quoting those gods were made up from Sumerians to represent Islam, Judaism, and Christianity which they claim was hijacked from Abraham to start a new religion for power and control. Here we will present several flaws in this logic. Sure Mesopotamia came up with a government system, justice system, mathematics, astrology, and a financial system we often still find in today's era. But how many knew exactly where they discovered this? Where did they get many laws from? Where did they understand the system of the constellations and time? Of course there was a law even in Noah's day, there was math in Noah's day, there was knowledge of heaven, the stars, and earth in Noah's day. In fact Noah created an Ark that would have required math and carpentry knowledge. With God's laws how else did God warn the world that a flood was coming by his wrath and judgement? Why else did God say to bring 7 pairs of clean animals and 1 pair of unclean? 1 pair was for sacrifices to eat, the 6 other pairs were for breeding.


Now back on topic. Babylon was in Mesopotamia was relatively close to Ur in the same empire. New gods formed in other civilizations and cities and new stories arose from the various ruling pagan king's. There was always 1 god. In fact Babylon was created to make a name for themselves in rebellion to the one true god! So that in itself reveals they wanted their own gods, remember they believed the mighty warrior Nimrod a descendant from Noah was a god and had mighty powers. Nimrod also founded and created Babylon! After God changed the languages you can notice how Mesopotamia split apart into new beliefs in gods and and the beginnings of creation. Egypt, Assyria, and Persia all came up with their own language and writing as well as much mathematics and ancient engineering, governmental ideas, and religious concepts as a result of scattering the nations! Yet Abraham came out of Ur inside of the Mesopotamian Empire. In fact he did not start a new religion but to revive a true one back from before Noah's day day and before Babylon as God revealed himself to a man set apart and different from the world.


Let's flashback again! How did God warn Noah that a flood was coming on the wicked lawless world if there were no laws? Noah seen grace in the eyes of God and obeyed by his faith! Now let's flash forward! In fact Abraham was like Noah living amongst Paganisms, or Lot living amongst Paganisms! Or like Moses living amongst paganisms! Or like today living amongst Paganisms! There is only 1 God yet many with their theories, philosophy, doctrine, theology, and opinion make multiple gods and belief systems today. Man made over 4200 religions by their minds and in America alone 44,000+ Denominations. That's many gods with many beliefs of a god or gods. In America many claim Jesus yet which one is true? It's safe to say and no shots fired but did the Baptists, Pentecostals, Lutherans, Non Denominational, or Catholics have it figured out many years later after the 1st Century? Why don't we go back to the root of the beginning Genesis 1:1 and John 1 where the law and spirit became flesh? Why today does many churches make commentaries, footnotes, and read so many books written by men and claim it's ordained by the spirit of God while highlighting bible passages? Why today in an American city can you drive a mile and have 4 churches on the same street/block? Is this truly ordained by God? Yeshua didn't start a new religion nor did Paul/Shaul suddenly convert to a new one, but in fact restored an old one and properly came to teach us how to live.



If you took a trip with me to Capernaum, Israel where Yeshua/Jesus use to teach, there was only one way! Either you had to change yourself, or you had no where to worship God in the Galilee and come close to him! Imagine if we had that today? The truth is God said in 2 Thessalonians 2 "For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness." and again warning in Matthew 24 that many false prophets would arise performing signs and wonders like the beast in Revelation while prophesying, casting out demons, and healing in his name yet he will say "depart from me you workers of lawlessness I never knew you" He warned the Jews even way back in Deuteronomy that they would worship gods they never knew after being exiled from Israel into a pagan land after the coming of a prophet like unto Moses. Which is Yeshua. In fact Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome fulfilled this Prophecy. The Catholic church of Rome repeated what Daniel spoke of about the Abomination that causes desolation not only by Antiochus on December 25th 167BC, but also in 70AD and 300-325AD by changing God's laws, days of worship, sabbath, and killing circumcised babies, those who kept dietary laws, and kept God's laws and didn't bow down to roman christianity while implementing pagan days of worship. As a side note Constantine was no Christian. He used it for political power and brought in many gods like Babylon and Nimrod and built giant statues of himself while people worshipped it.

Like Constantine implemented pagan worship, People also worshipped Nimrod who they said died on a evergreen tree stump, as they worshipped his birth on December 25th and would cut down trees and decorate it while placing gifts under it. But we won't get into this subject right now, that's a discussion for another dat let's get deeper back on topic.

.


As we flash forward, In fact many churches today are speaking about a new Jesus which is not the word of God. It sounds like the word because they read verses out of context and speak rehearsed words like the cross, obedience, sin, holiness, repent, love, grace, etc. Yet is it truly? For a modern culture has arisen like Nimrod making out God is evil while presenting a new Jesus, by proclaiming his laws were nailed to the cross or done away with. In fact these are the strong delusions! For in Ezekiel 11:18-21, Ezekiel 36:26-27, and Jeremiah 31:33 he says his laws will be written on our hearts and in our minds and cause us to obey! You see we will have new morals, values, characteristics, desires, and a conscience of right and wrong and give us a POWER to live holy, just, self controlled, and upright lives until the coming of the Messiah (Titus 2:11-15) for that is God's grace!



Sadly today the world is building that tower back up and one language with love, unity, peace, tolerance, and acceptance of all regardless if it's sin or not. Babylon is coming back together to build the tower with all nations in perfect unity and peace. New age beliefs have crept into the churches where there is a easy cheap grace repeat a prayer and get saved yet no self denial, no holiness, no sacrifice, no true repentance, no picking up your cross and following Adonai (The Lord), no Godly sorrows over your sins, but in fact religions today are reviving an old religion that tried to replace a holy living God of Israel and the word that became flesh!



Babylon was a financial, religious, and governmental system. In fact the very reason God chose Abraham. Just like Lot and Moses. Men tormented day and night over the sins of the people! Desiring to be saved and set apart from the world, so God revealed himself to all 3! In fact God wants the same for all of us, yet many are still trying to hold onto their lives, cities, states, nations, traditions, sin, pleasures, riches, successes, etc. How can he deliver you like Noah from a wicked generation? Or like Abraham from a lawless pagan society? Or like Lot from a city plagued with lust, adultery, greed, violence, gossip, slander, love of money, pleasure, failure to care for the poor, widow, orphans, injustice, homosexuality, and idol worship like many do today with their cars, houses, careers, investments, sports, etc? Or Like Moses out of Pagan Egypt full of false gods, yet it had all the luxuries and food a man can have! How can God deliver you and reveal his glory to you when one still wants the Babylon and the Egyptian system? How can God deliver people trying to build their own tower by their own way to heaven, yet as Yeshua says there is one way as he is the gate! The gate is narrow, but the the path to destruction is broad! (Matthew 7:13-14)


The reality is this. God sent his son to deliver us from sin and bring us close to him to have a personal relationship with him. The cross is not for those who want to continue holding onto their sin and their lives yet try to build their own tower while believing it's God! Either you have the seal of salvation growing in sanctification leading to righteous living. Or you take the mark of the beast and continue a lawless willful rebellious lifestyle plagued by sin and hatred for a holy God and his righteous, just, and good laws that became flesh!


The creation story in the Bible is the only creation story of 1 (Echad) God in Genesis from the very beginning.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the {SPIRIT} of God was hovering over the waters.

And God {SAID}, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the LIGHT from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.


In fact you see 1 God. Sound is powerful and can create! Yet our human voices are not powerful enough to create, yet Yeshua still says if we have faith as a mustard seed we can make mountains move! How? The spirit of God is powerful! Just a Elijah shut the rain up for 3 1/2 years and instantly brought rain back! God's voice can shake the foundations of the earth! In fact it will at his coming!


We can all choose to believe that Mesopotamia and Egypt and other civilizations created life through Zoroastrianism, Bahá'í, or New Age type beliefs. But the fact is, there is no hope and leaves you more confused and depressed and anxious than before. In fact this is part of the last days strong delusions! These same beliefs overtook Israel many times in the past which is why prophets were sent and they hated the word that they spoke from God which always had its origins in living holy and repentance and turning from sin! While many wanted to continue to listen to the false priests, pastors, rabbi's, and prophets like in Jeremiah 23. Salvation is not just a one time deal then go back to sin offering a false grace salvation like many church leaders are doing today because they worship idols in their hearts and what is created rather than the creator. But truly abhor it in their hearts and mind. A true disgust and sickly sorrow toward sin and what it does to not only your life but to others lives and the world. It should be a lifestyle and an everyday desire to live after the son of God!


You see where the true word arises there is always a disguise in order to consume the weak who don't truly want God's ways, but would rather live a life they want to while believing they have salvation and grace. These people are being handed over to the delusions of their minds, hearts, actions, thoughts. In fact they find God's ways to be a burden like in Jeremiah 23. But if you're truly repentant and surrendered, Yeshua says his yoke is easy and burden is light ( Matthew 11:28-30)! For his ways are easy and a delight for those who love God. But for those who have rebellion like Babylon building their own tower and Israelites led out of Egypt. They were not shown the ways of God nor did they enter the promised land! In fact without truly wanting God with all your heart, soul, and mind. You will not see the glory of God. It will rather be enlightenment and emotions, but no transformation of the heart, soul, and mind. Those who want another way of life, another gate, another tower, go back to the pleasures of Egypt, and hold onto their life will not find life!


Matthew 16:25 "For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it."


For we know it takes faith to leave Babylon, It takes faith to build an ark, it takes faith to leave Mesopotamia, it takes faith to leave Sodom and Gomorrah, and by faith to leave Egypt! By faith you have to believe that the message is true ( Hebrews 11) and that there is no other salvation in any other religion! God created one way before religions of man began! God created on way before man fell into rebellion like Adam and Eve wanting to know right from wrong. God gives us free will and the fallen sons of man are speaking with a forked tongue to bring all into confusion and deception of the world! The internet is full of lies and deception, but God's faithful who truly believe will accept the message being spoken, receive the bible, and believe upon Yeshua and trust that what the word says is true. It's better to be sure of your salvation than to find out you believed a lie! For Yeshua came to restore the fallen nature of Adam so that those who want his ways and obey them will one day receive their glorified bodies to only know him which is the law! Never knowing wrong, just right which is God!


The truth is real, as the archeological evidence and historical truths about the bible, they supersede all religions, empires, rulings, governments, and powers on this earth! In fact the power of God has always overthrown all these empires spoken of in this article by faith that led to obedience and holy living. Yet there was no power and protection over Israel whenever there was lawlessness and lack or morality! God gave us his laws to protect us and bring us close to him by his grace so that we wouldn't follow the pagan nations. Then he sent his son Yeshua the word in the flesh to be perfectly blameless and holy in order to put that law within us, give us a power to live holy and bring us close to him with a POWER! In fact even the 1st century rabbis believed a man that was perfectly righteous and blameless could take the place of another ones sins. So what changed? What are they keeping from many?


Even more, the prophets predicted all the events to come. Daniel by the spirit of God predicted the time of the Abomination that causes desolation with Antiochus by murdering many as well as murdering those who had a circumcision, kept sabbath, the holy days, and the dietary laws. While sacrificing a pig on December 25th and ceasing all daily sacrifices. Daniel also predicted the of the coming of Messiah and his exact birth, as well as the exact time he would be cut off and killed for our sins, as well as the next abomination that causes desolation by the destruction of the temple in 70A.D! Every prophecy is spot on and accurate while only fortune tellers are right 5% of the time. The Prophecies in the Bible with research and a will to know God is proven 100% accurate every time as well as the archaeological evidence backing truth up!


John 20:29 "Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."


Romans 8:24 For in hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, then we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. 26 In the same way, the Ruach (Spirit) helps in our weakness. For we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Ruach Himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words. 27 And He who searches the hearts knows the mind of the Ruach, because He intercedes for the kedoshim (Holy Ones) according to the will of God.



There is only one way, one truth, on life. No other way to the father except through Yeshua the word/law that became flesh. All other ways has it's origins in Religion and Building ones own tower or own path to the kingdom! We all need salvation which the name Yeshua means. If not why would lawlessness and the lack of morality be ruling the world? God didn't send his son to start a new religion but in fact complete and restore an old one before the pagan empires and false gods. Note this final thought; Israel has only ever sought the land where God promised through a theocratic dynasty, while the pagan nations wanted power and control of whole empires, nations, tongues, and introduced many religions, beliefs, practices, and ways of life in order to enslave people to man and Satan. While God is always one way and never changes! While he seeks to bring you to his heart as a child of God. Not man! Glory to God, may we all discover the hidden treasures and his salvation hidden in the word of God!



Shalom and Blessings to you all
