Torah commands Israelites to have NOTHING to do with Canaanites. Nothing at all. No dealings. No friendship. No alliances. No covenants or agreements. NO ASOCIATION. <— total segregation.
“When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them.”
“And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land [CANAANITES] into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee. Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.”
“Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the [CANAANITE], and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee.”
“But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the [CANAANITES], and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee: That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 20:16-18
“Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: [AND IN THAT DAY THERE SHALL BE NO MORE THE CANAANITE IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD OF HOSTS.]” Zechariah 14:21
The nation of Israel is to have NO FRIENDSHIP, NO PARTNERSHIPS, NO DEALINGS OR ASSOCIATION with Canaanites. NONE. Torah is VERY CLEAR on this. Now, if this is the case, why was one of the twelve disciples, a Canaanite??
“Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; [SIMON THE CANAANITE], and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. Matthew 10:2-4
Didn’t Mary’s little baby know Torah?? Didn’t the son of David know that he was supposed to have NOTHING to do with Canaanites?? Yes. HE DID. The meek and humble lamb was VERY WELL AWARE that he was supposed to have NO DEALINGS with Canaanites.
“Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.” Matthew 15:21-26
Okay. The bright and morning star KNEW he was supposed to have NOTHING to do with Canaanites. He basically called the woman a DOG. Okay. What made HER a dog, but Simon the Canaanite, was cleared to be an apostle?
Was the prince of peace a hypocrite? YES HE WAS.
“No, Makabi! My savior WASN’T a hypocrite!!”
And what, then? He held double standards? Whether you say potato, or pottato, tomato, or tomatto, it doesn’t matter how you cut it or slice it —> the firstborn of the resurrection DISOBEYED TORAH. Yes. The miracle worker violated Torah. There’s a widely held rumor that the man from Galilee was a Torah observant Jew, but we see right here in black and white where he blatantly disobeyed Torah. He KNEW having a Canaanite as his disciple was in direct violation of Torah and he DID IT ANYWAY.
This wasn’t the first time the wonderful counselor violated Torah. The man from Galilee violated Torah from the BEGINNING OF HIS MINISTRY.
“Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the [CAMEL], because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, [AND THEIR CARCASE SHALL YE NOT TOUCH; THEY ARE UNCLEAN TO YOU.]” Leviticus 11:4,8
☝️☝️☝️ Clearly understood, right? Touching the dead carcass of a camel is FORBIDDEN. The dead carcasses of camels are UNCLEAN. Let’s continue…
And the same John (the Baptist) had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a [CAMEL] leather girdle about his loins.” Matthew 3:4
Yes. The “prophet” John the Baptist, clearly violated Torah, up one side and down the other. Literally. He rocked his camel fur jacket and his camel leather boxer briefs. As we say in the hood, he was “cleaner than the board of health” and YET in the eyes of the Most High, he was UNCLEAN AS A BOWL OF PIG VOMIT, DRIZZLED WITH SHRIMP EXCREMENT. There’s no debating these things. John the baptist was the walking, talking definition of BIBLICAL UNCLEANNESS.
Let’s continue shall we?
“Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him. And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Matthew.” Matthew 3:13-17
Okay. Why did the stone hewed out the mountain, ask an unclean man to baptize him?? Why would the lamb of God ask a, CLEARLY, VISIBLY, UNCLEAN “prophet” to baptize him? And why would The Most High say “this is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased??” If you make contact with something that is unclean as a result of an unclean person coming in contact with it, YOU BECOME UNCLEAN TOO!
“And whatsoever the unclean person toucheth shall be unclean; and the soul that toucheth it shall be unclean until even.” Numbers 19:22
So – assuming the voice from heaven which said, “This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased,” was the voice of The Most High —> are we now to assume that The Most High was pleased with his NOW unclean son? It’s safe to assume he was clean BEFORE John the baptist touched him!! It’s safe to assume he was clean before he stepped one foot in the Jordan river where John the baptist was!
Barnabas said the king of the Jews is our high priest:
“For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.” Hebrews 7:17
“Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens…” Hebrews 8:1
“But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building…” Hebrews 9:11
Okay. If the son of David is our high priest in the order of Melchizedek, did he not know what Torah says about touching the unclean thing? The only begotten son was IN THE WATER with john and his unclean camel hair and unclean camel leather underwear. THE ENTIRE JORDAN RIVER WAS UNCLEAN.
So, was the only begotten son, a Torah observant, Jew? We see TWO PLACES where he CLEARLY violated Torah. So, was he torah observant, or not? And if he WASN’T Torah observant, by what authority do we call him the sinless son of God?? “Sin” is defined as disobeying Torah, right?
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”
1 John 3:4
Well, if transgressing Torah is considered SIN, we already see in this first exposé, two places where the only begotten son, SINNED. And if he SINNED, how can he be a (perfect sacrifice) sin offering for all???
