Prophecy of Esaias

Revising at this time:

Parables, Isaiah, and Ashes

Matthew 13:10-17

10And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?11He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Then why bother talking to them in parables!

Does that make any sense? Why gather people about you and talk so they don’t understand?

Isn’t that what speaking in tongues is for?

12For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.13Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

14And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias,

which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand;

and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

Well, that is the important thing ….to fulfill prophecy at every cost!

Even at the expense of truth!

Why would Jesus waste His time teaching people He did not want to learn from His teaching. I just can’t imagine the Son of God wasting His time in such a fashion.

Didn’t He have better things to do than that?

15For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

So the Synoptic Jesus of the Gospel of Matthew came to gather crowds about him, because he did not want to heal the people.

Synoptic Ignorance ….yea, that will keep them busy and under his spell.

He came so they would not see with their eyes?

He came so that they would not hear with their ears?

He came so that they should not understand with their heart?

He came so that they should not be converted?

He came so that He should not heal them?

Somehow, that just doesn’t seem even logical,

much less sane.

I really don’t think Jesus Christ came to trick people,

yet Matthew’s rendition of Jesus

admits to tricking the people.

Isn’t that deception!

Obviously, this was not the Messiah!


16But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

17For verily I say unto you,

That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see,

and have not seen them;

and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

(now he his pandering)

Then the Synoptic Jesus of the Gospel of Matthew

tells the the parables of the

Sower and the Seed

and the

Wheat and the Tares:

Matthew 13:34-36

36Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house:

and his disciples came unto him, saying,

Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

Then the Synoptic Jesus explains the parable of the Wheat and the Tares to the disciples

because they did not seem to be blessed?

I thought they (the disciples) were blessed, because their eyes saw and their ears heard, but apparently they needed help to see and to hear, so they came to Jesus in private,

and then he explains the parable of the Wheat and Tares to them.

So was this Jesus pandering to his disciples even though their ears didn’t really hear, and their eyes didn’t really see, and their hearts didn’t really understand?

I thought he said:

16But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

Was Matthew’s Jesus lying to his disciples?

Was the Synoptic Jesus using reverse psychology to get his disciples to admit to not understanding him and come to ask him what the parables meant?

Something is not right here!

This Synoptic Jesus contradicts himself by saying that

they had eyes to see and ears to hear unlike everyone else,

because obviously they didn’t!

Wouldn’t the real Jesus know whether they understood what he was saying

so that he would not contradict himself,

or was this Synoptic Jesus being sarcastic about his disciple’s blessedness

ie. presumed knowledge?

Somebody is trying to make Jesus look sinister

and/or his disciples look dumb.

Either way it’s a very odd!

All I can surmise from this is it doesn’t sound like Jesus Christ the Son of God…the one that gave his life for his friends. I am not saying he did not share wisdom, but why did he pretend that they knew the meaning when he knew they did not know the meaning? Why did he teach people so that they would not understand,

so he wouldn’t have to heal them? 

Isn’t that insane? Isn’t that deceitful? Isn’t that evil?

I don’t think the true Jesus Christ was deceitful.

Isaiah 53:9
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death;

because he had done no violence,

neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Deceit is deception!

OR is Isaiah insane along with Matthew

who supposedly wrote the Synoptic Gospel of Matthew, OR is it possible that someone added to the book of Isaiah?

(In any case the fact that his disciples had to get help to understand his parables when he said that they understood because they were blessed at the very least was sarcasm. Jesus in the Gospel of John was not sarcastic. I have noticed that many people have resorted to sarcasm in the years of the Obama administration even those that seemed to be on his side referring to him in terms of the Messiah by the press, Time Magazine, and even a few comedians. So far it seems that everything Obama says people have to weigh because it seems nothing he says is true. Of course usually we find out later in time because most of what he says are promises he doesn’t intend to keep, etc. It seems that Jesus of the Gospel of Matthew also had that same personality trait. Maybe the Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew was a sneaky politician. There are many examples if you read my posts that are on the subject of the gospels and especially the ones that compare the gospels.)

The Gospel of Matthew basically is saying that Jesus was deceiving and yet Isaiah says there was no deceit in his mouth.

SO which is it?

Do you believe the Gospel of Matthew on this point about Jesus,

or do you believe Isaiah?

Then whose mouth was deceiving in the Gospel of Matthew?

Salute No Man

In my opinion, this rendition of Jesus Christ in the gospel of Matthew seems like a pompous show-off and a deceiver.  I really truly believe that Jesus Christ was not a show-off.  I believe Jesus Christ was sincere to the utmost and kind, and the gospel writer Matthew either misunderstood Jesus to the nth degree, or made this one up! The Synoptic version of Jesus is pretty mixed up

and I think it was done purposefully to mix us up! 

I don’t believe for a minute that Jesus Christ came to ridicule men,

even the ones that did not see, and did not hear,

or have hearts to understand! 

If I did believe that Jesus came so I and others would not understand or perceive, and if I believed that He came so he would not heal me and you,

then why bother learning about Him!

I wouldn’t waste my time on a false Messiah!

These Synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke)

are uncannily similar in places and seems that their goal was to diminish and overpower the gospel of John. Its apparent to me that Luke wrote his gospel after seeing John’s gospel, because Luke’s gospel is eerily antithetical to the gospel of John in many, many places, and the same goes for the gospels of Matthew and Mark!

Is it possible that there are some parts of the Synoptic Gospels that are true?

There is definitely big disagreement as to His character

His purpose,

if and when you compare it to the Gospel of John,

Which you ought to do,

because it is very telling and has been a blessing to me!

There are so many problems when you compare the Synoptic Gospels with the Gospel of John. It is also possible that Luke, by being so antithetical with the Gospel of John,

is actuality highlighting the deception in the gospels of Matthew and Mark?

Could be that the writer of the gospel of Luke was trying to point to the deception without being obvious. Then again the writer of the gospel of Luke may be so depraved that he/she relished the insertion of aberrant remarks against Jesus Christ.

One thing to keep in mind is that the people that hated Jesus were in power and people were killed for telling and writing the truth about Jesus. It is possible that the writers of the gospels had to write in ways so that we might have to search for the truth in the gospels! We are very lucky in these times to be able to write what we want to write and read what we want to read without the threat of death, but under Roman rule people were slaughtered for no reason and sometimes simply for entertainment.

Which could be why Jesus Christ says:

John 13:18

I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up

his heel against me.

Jesus was also cryptic in his words! He could have just said who it was that had lifted his heel against him, but instead he left clues in his words for us. Obviously, there were reasons for this because he knew the words would be destroyed!

If you read some of my earlier posts you will see the lack of harmony between the Synoptic gospels and the Gospel of John and I think the dissimilarities are so striking that they ought to be heavily scrutinized!

Two of the gospels writers of Mark (John Mark) and Luke were not apostles! They were followers/cohorts of Paul/Saul of Tarsus. I don’t think Matthew was an apostle either because he missed some really important events that John writes about in his gospel or he purposefully omitted them to satisfy someone else’s objectives.

I am very suspicious that Paul wrote the gospel of Matthew!

Now wouldn’t that be a coup to have Paul (and his partners) authoring 3 out of 4 of the gospels, Acts and Romans etc, etc, etc?

I am very suspicious that Saul/Paul of Tarsus is either Simon of Cyrene or one of Simon’s Sons.

Tarsus (skeleton)

 the bones of the ankle and heel, collectively  

Gee, that’s a big clue!

Luke in his gospel added this quote from Jesus Christ at the Last Supper event :

Luke 22:31

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

As I said in another post, how does he know?

Luke wasn’t at the Last Supper and the above statement is not in any of the other gospels!


Isaiah 44:13-20

13The carpenter stretcheth out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man;

that it may remain in the house.

What house?

The house spoken of in the Book of Acts?

14He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it.15Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself;yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto.16He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire:17And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.

18They have not known nor understood:

for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see;

and their hearts, that they cannot understand.






Paul of Tarsus?

Tarsus is part of Turkey.

What is the religion of Turkey?…..98 % Islam.

The Synoptic Gospels are the origin of ISLAM!

19And none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof;

I have roasted flesh,

and eaten it:

and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination?

shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?20He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?

Is this talking about the DECEIVER?

I believe that the

“Q Source”

that is credited to a great degree to be the inspiration of the Synoptic Gospels is the Deceiver!

I think that “The brethren of Jesus” are the

four carpenters James, Joses, Simon and Judas written about in Zechariah:

The Carpenters of Zechariah-The Four Horns

18Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.19And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.20And the LORD shewed me four carpenters.21Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles,

which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.

Who is no man?


Please read these two comparisons of the gospels:

Salute No Man

Tell No Man

Matthew 13:55
Is not this the carpenter‘s son? is not his mother called Mary?

and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Mark 6:3
Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

IN the Gospel of John

Jesus never calls his mother by the name of Mary!

He calls her Woman!


John 19:25-26

25Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister,

Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

26When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

Mary was the sister of the mother of Jesus!
