S101-12. WHAT does Revelation 2:9 TRULY MEAN?

Chapter 12.

What does Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9 TRULY mean in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God? Who are the TRUE Jews and WHO are the Jews of the synagogue of Satan?

In this chapter I will answer those questions. But first, I want to give a brief summary of all 11 chapters of this book called S101-0 The JEWISH Messiah is Jesus! The purpose of this book is threefold.

#1. Purpose number one of this book is to help the Christians who have been deceived by the false teachings of those who claim that they are the so-called true Hebrew Israelite people, the Jesus Words Only Christians, the British Israelite Christians, and every other group of Christians who DOUBT the teachings of the Apostle Paul.

#2. Purpose number one of this book is to help the Christians who have NOT been deceived by the above groups of Christians HELP those who have been deceived find their way out of the snare of the enemy.

#3. Purpose number one of this book is to help Christians to NOT be DECEIVED by the groups of Christians listed in #1 above. 

The purpose of this chapter is to teach Christians that NO Christian sets out to be deceived. It would not be a DECEPTION if they KNEW it was false teaching.

The deception of ALL of the seventh DAY of the week Sabbath-keeping Christians STARTS with TWO simple questions.

Deception question #1

They argue, seeing that it is a SIN to break any of the NINE commandments, then WHY is it NOT a sin to break the FOURTH commandment under the Law of Moses?

Deception question #2

Then they ask the question, are YOU keeping the FOURTH commandment in accordance with the Law of Moses?

The sound Biblical answer to BOTH of these questions is that if you are a true born-again Christian who obeys the TWO commandments that Jesus gave to us as Christians, then you ARE KEEPING ALL TEN Commandments in the WAY that Yahweh Himself REQUIRES us to keep His commandments under His NEW COVENANT written in the New Testament. In other words, we ARE keeping the SPIRIT of the law and NOT the LETTER of the law because God Himself SEEKS us to worship Him in SPIRIT and in TRUTH. And Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE and we are COMPLETE in him.

Again, the snare of the enemy Satan STARTS with those two simple questions, but it can lead to the EXTREME deception of SOME Christian who might eventually deny Jesus and convert to keeping ALL of the Law of Moses to the letter of the law as the children of Israel under the Old Covenant. I have even heard a few testimonies of former Christians who no longer believe the teachings of Jesus who at first only kept the seventh day as a day of rest. Then they began to keep the dietary laws written in the Law of Moses. Then they began keeping all of the Law of Moses to SHOW their faith in Jesus. But NOW, they keep the Law of Moses as their hope of eternal life. And SOME have even denied Jesus and have converted to Judaism. But that STARTED by just simply resting on Saturday. Then they became Sunday HATERS to argue that the Roman Catholic Church is the antichrist system. Then SOME have become Paul HATERS. They have let the spirit of FEAR enter into them and they FEAR that if they do not keep the Law of Moses to the letter that they will lose their eternal life. Let us go over these steps again in reverse.

Now, the step just before that step of denying Jesus is the extreme belief that Paul is a FALSE teacher and a FALSE Apostle to become a Jesus Words ONLY Christian. They also DOUBT Luke and even believe that Peter was deceived by Paul.

And the step before that the Jesus Words ONLY faith is QUESTIONING or DOUBTING and not trusting the teachings of Paul.

And the step before WONDERING about the teachings of Paul is INTERPRETING the teachings of Paul to FIT the belief that Paul is teaching Christians to KEEP the Law of Moses. But not with the mindset that they are keeping the Law of Moses to be SAVED. Rather, they argue that Christians must keep the letter of the Law of Moses in order to SHOW that we love God.

And the step before that step of keeping all of the Law of Moses to SHOW God that the love Him is the SUGGESTIONS that God knows best. And thus, they argue that it is better for our health if we keep the dietary laws on Moses.

And the step before that is attending Sabbath meetings to see WHY they rest on the seventh DAY of the week as opposed to resting on Sunday, the first day of the week.

And the step before that is ENTERTAINING the THOUGHT that just maybe we ought to rest on the seventh day of the week instead of resting on the first day of the week.

And the step before that is the false teaching that it is displeasing to God and even a SIN if a Christian misses going to church on Sunday.

The TRUTH of the matter is that under the New Covenant written in the New Testament there is NO SUCH commandment to REST on ANY DAY of the week. In fact, according to Romans 14:5,6, we are taught to NOT esteem ANY day above any other day and not to JUDGE each other. In Galatians 4:9-21, Paul was afraid for those who KEPT days above other days desiring to be under the law.

Please read the following list of studies to find all of the Scriptures showing WHY we ARE keeping the FOURTH commandment is SPIRIT and in TRUTH, the way in which Almighty God SEEKS us to keep His commandment of REST. And God’s TRUE rest is to rest in His Son, Jesus, for righteousness. That does NOT mean that we do not have to obey the MORAL commandments of God. Jesus himself told us in Matthew 19:16-19, EXACTLY WHICH commandments that we MUST obey in order to receive eternal life in the world to come and resting on Saturday was NOT one of those commandments.

Summary of chapter 1.

S101-1 Does Paul Bear WITNESS of HIMSELF?

The argument that Paul SELF EXALTS himself and his teaching CONTRADICT the teachings of Jesus is NOT found in the Scriptures.

The following verses prove that what Paul taught was for the SAKE of Jesus. (Romans 15:30-32, 2 Corinthians 4:5-11, and Philemon 1:8-11)

What Paul preached was for the SAKE of the church.

(Colossians 1:24, 1 Thessalonians 1:5, and 2 Corinthians 1:5-8

Paul did NOT preach himself, but rather, Paul preached nothing but the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ. 

(1 Corinthians 1:18-23, 1 Corinthians 2:2, 2 Corinthians 4:5, Galatians 3:1,2, Galatians 6:14-18, and Ephesians 3:8-21)

So NO! Paul did NOT self-exalt himself and bear witness of himself.

Summary of chapter 2.

S101-2 Does Luke CONTRADICT Himself?

This argument is only made by the Jesus Words ONLY Sabbath-keeping Christians. Almost all other seven the DAY of the week Sabbath-keeping Christians simply INTERPRET the words of Luke to force them to agree with their teaching.

In other words, the Jesus Words Only Christians can see that Luke clearly teaches us in Acts 15:10-24 that the whole church agreed that NO SUCH commandment to keep the Law of Moses should be given. Therefore, the Jesus Words Only Christians try to prove that Luke is ALSO a false teacher because he contradicts himself. Or so they CLAIM. Click on the link to chapter 2 to learn the TRUTH.

Summary of chapter 3.

S101-3 Did Paul Come in His OWN NAME?

They INTERPRET John 5:34 to mean that the prophecy of ANOTHER coming in his OWN name was fulfilled in the Apostle Paul. Let us read that verse again.

John 5:43.  

“I have come in my Father's name, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him, you will receive.”

Jesus is talking about the people who do NOT RECEIVE Jesus but they WILL receive another man who comes in his OWN NAME. 

Now, did anyone follow Paul who did NOT RECEIVE Jesus? NO! The only people who followed Paul BELIEVED in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. And they only followed Paul as he followed Jesus.

However, those of the seed of Ishmael and or the seed of Esua do indeed follow another prophet who came in his OWN name, the prophet Muhammad and the faith of Islam. And they do NOT receive Jesus as being the Son of God. Nor do they believe that Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world.

So NO, Paul is NOT the fulfillment of John 5:34 and Paul did NOT come in his OWN name!

Summary of chapter 4.

S101-4 Did Saul CHANGE His NAME to Paul?

Again, it is mostly the Jesus Words Only Christians who claim that Saul CHANGED his name of Paul. And therefore, to THEM, Paul came in his OWN name.

But the truth of the matter is that Saul and Paul is the SAME name like Sion and Zion is the SAME name. Many names are SPELLED differently in the Bible, but that does not mean that they are different names like Abram and Abraham.

Summary of chapter 5.


The argument made by the Jesus Words Only Christians and ALL of the so-called TRUE Hebrew Israelite Christians is that ALL of the people in the Bible who are called the JEWS are NOT the chosen people of God. But rather, they argue that ALL of the Jews are of the seed of Esau, the Edomite people.

If that were true, then WHO were the 120 followers of Jesus in the upper room, who were the first believers to be filled with the Holy Spirit? They were called JEWS.

And WHO  were the three thousand that were saved by the first gospel messages in Acts 2:36-42? They were called the men of Israel who were called the JEWS that came OUT OF every country under heaven in Acts 2:5-14. The men of Judaea are the SAME men of Israel in verse 36.

Summary of chapter 6.

S101-6. What Does John 8:33 TRULY MEAN?

In John 8:33 the Jews said that they were the children of Abraham and THEY were NEVER in BONDAGE.

And the Jesus Words Only Christians INTERPRET this verse to mean that ALL of the people in the Bible who are called the JEWS are NOT the chosen people of God because the children of Israel WERE INDEED in bondage in the land of Egypt.

However, the God INTENDED meaning of John 8:33 is that particular GENERATION of the children of Israel have never been in bondage. It is like the Black African people in our generation have NEVER been SLAVES in the United States like they ancestors were before the Civil War.

Now SOME of the Jews were indeed people of the seed of Ishmael and Esau who were the children of Abraham, but NOT of the seed of PROMISE. But that does NOT mean that every single person in the Bible who is called a Jew is an Edomite person of the seed of Esau as some Jesus Words Only Christians dogmatically insist.

Again, MANY JEWS BELIEVED in Jesus as their Messiah, according to John 11:45, John 12:11, and many other verses of Scripture including the 120 in the upper room. It was mainly the LEADERS of the Jews who wanted to KILL Jesus, and NOT the common people called the Jews. And HATED makes a person a child of the Devil, according to 1 John 3:7-10.

Summary of chapter 7.

S101-7 Is Jesus called a JEW in the Bible?

Now, please be warned that if you even MENTION that Jesus is a Jew to a hard core Jesus Words Only Christian, they will come unglued so to speak and call you a blasphemer.

They HATE the word Jew and argue that the WHOLE church and the WHOLE world has been deceived. And thus, to THEM, they alone have the truth.

Now, that to me, is the first sign of a cult.

They argue that the word Jew means the CITIZENS of the land of Judea. And they argue that the land of Israel was named by the Romans as the land of Judea. Therefore, to THEM, ANY and EVERY person living in the land of Judea is a JEW.

They do concede that in the Old Testament the word Jew means a Judahite which is an Israelite of the Tribe of Judah. But in the New Testament, that is NOT what the word Jew means, according to THEM.

But again, they are wrong.

The Greek word translated as Judea is a COMPOUND Greek word. Here is how E-Sword defines the Greek word “Ioudaia” translated as Judaea in the KJV under the reign of Herod in Matthew 2:22





Feminine of G2453 (with G1093 implied); the Judaean land (that is, judaea), a region of Palestine: - Juda.

Notice that G2449 is the feminine word of G 2453 WITH the Greek word G1093 implied in the meaning. So let us look those two Greek words up.





From G2448 (in the sense of G2455 as a country); udaean, that is, belonging to Jehudah: - Jew (-ess), of Juda.

So then, G2453 means BELONGING to Jehudah. And WITH G1093 we will see WHAT BELONGS to Jehudah or to the Judahites in the Old Testament.





Contracted from a primary word; soil; by extension a region, or the solid part or the whole of the terrene globe (including the occupants in each application): - country, earth (-ly), ground, land, world.

So then, the word Judaea simply means the LAND BELONGING to the Judahites in the Old Testament and NOT that the land of the Tribe of Judah was RENAMED Judaea by the Roman Herods. 

In other words, the word Judaea means Juda + ea, which means the LAND belonging to Juda or the Judahites. Now it is true that the Roman Empire conquered the land belonging to the Tribe of Judah AND also conquered the land of the 10 northern tribes of Israel. So IF it were true that the Romans NAMED the land that they conquered as Judaea, then WHY does the Bible say the land of Zebulon, the land of Nepthalim, and Galilee in Matthew 4:15? Clearly, these are the lands of the 10 northern tribes of Israel. The land of Israel was divided in three parts, Galilee, Samaria, and Judaea.

So NO! The Romans nor the Herods NAME the land Judaea so that all of ist citizens could be called the men of Judaea.


Summary of chapter 8.

S101-8 WHO Are the JEWS Belonging to Satan?

The Jesus Words Only Christians INTERPRET the words of Jesus in John 8:44, to mean that ALL of the people in the Bible called the JEWS are the children of the Devil. And to THEM that means that ALL of the people in the Bible called the JEWS are of the SEED of Esau and the SEED of Ishmael. And SOME of the Jesus Words ONLY Christians interpret that being of the SEED means the LITERAL biological children of Satan.

But the SOUND BIBLICAL meaning of being the children of the Devil means doing the WORKS of Satan, according to 1 John 3:7-10. Let us go ahead and read that passage of Scripture.

1 John 3:7-10.

“Little children, let no man DECEIVE you: he that does righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 

8.  He that commits sin is OF the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the WORKS of the devil

9.  Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his SEED remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. (So seed does NOT mean the BIOLOGICAL children of God and neither does being the children of the Devil makes SINNERS to be the biological SEED of Satan. It is the WORKS people do that determines whose children they are)

10.  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does NOT righteousness is NOT of God, neither he that loves NOT his brother.”

So then, those who HATE the Apostle Paul are walking on thin ice so to speak.

Summary of chapter 9.

S101-9 HOW, WHEN, & WHY Was Israel DIVIDED?

Some Christians, including some Christians who are NOT seventh DAY of the week Sabbath-keeping Christians have the wrong idea that the house of Israel and the house of Judah are still DIVIDED.

But in truth, it appears that in God’s eyes they are no longer divided AFTER they came out of captivity and returned to their land to word TOGETHER to rebuild the city of Jerusalem unto the Messiah. You have to keep in mind that the REGION conquered by Assyria is the SAME region conquered by the Babylonians, then the Medes and the Persians, then the Grecian Empire, and then the Roman Empire. The LAND itself was many COUNTRIES and many races of people. 

So then, OUT OF every nation of country UNDER the Babylonian Empire were the chosen people of God of ALL 12 tribes. And they came TOGETHER as ONE people or one house of Israel again after their captivity. And MANY returned to their homeland in Israel to rebuild the city of Jerusalem uno the Messiah.

Summary of chapter 10.

S101-10. ARE the LOST Tribes of Israel LOST?

SOME of the Jesus Words Only Christians argue that NONE of ANY of the 12 Tribes of Israel returned to the land of Israel after 70 AD. And to THEM, all of the people in Israel today are FAKE Jews.

But in truth, God prophesied that the children of Israel would gather themselves into their land, according to Isaiah 54:15, Hosea 8:4 and many other verses of Scripture. But when God Himself brings them BACK into their land again, they will dwell SAFELY. And that will happen at the second coming of Jesus AFTER they SEE the publicans and the harlots ENTER the Kingdom of heaven BEFORE them.

Plus, Jesus will fight against those nations who are fighting against Israel when he returns. Therefore, there MUST be a State of Israel to the Gentile nations to fight against for that prophecy in Zechariah 14:1-12 to be fulfilled.

Summary of chapter 11.

S101-11 What Does Salvation OF the JEWS Mean?

SOME Jesus Words Only Christians argue that salvation is for the lost sheep of ISRAEL ONLY. And to THEM, that means that Jesus died ONLY for the tribes of Israel. And some argue that Jesus came to save only the 10 northern tribes of Israel and that all of the Jews are the Edomite people of the seed of Esau.

Now, IF that were true, then why did Jesus himself say that salvation is of the JEWS? It is because Jesus himself is a JEW of the Tribe of Israel and salvation is ONLY through FAITH in Jesus.

As I promised at the beginning, I will explain WHO are the Jews of the synagogue of Satan in Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9. Let us read both of those verses first.

Revelation 2:9.

“I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which SAY they are Jews, and are NOT, but are the synagogue of Satan.”

Revelation 3:9.

“Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which SAY they are Jews, and are NOT, but do LIE; behold, I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.”

Now, there are no less than four groups of Christians who SAY that THEY are the TRUE Hebrew Israelite people and they are NOT, according to the DNA of the Hebrew Semitic race of people in the Middle East and the FRUITS they bear.

So then, the Jesus Words Only Christians, the Black Africans who SAY that they are the true Hebrew Israelites, the Caucasian white people who SAY that they are the true Hebrew Israelites, and the British Israelite movement who also SAY that they are the true Israelit people. 

But, according to the DNA evidence and the fruit they bear hating the Jews in Israel, NONE of them are the true Jewish race of Hebrew people. Here are some links to some videos I found on YouTube.

Jesus is talking to the church and the mark of a TRUE Jew is the circumcision of the HEART. And when Christians understand that they ARE circumcised with the TRUE circumcision by FAITH in Jesus, according to Colossians 2:1-17, then they know there is no more Jew or Gentile when we are IN Jesus Christ.
