Stephen E. Jones, Intellectually Dishonest

!! STEPHEN E. JONES, INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST !!

Here is a reproduction of page 154 where Jones lied about the song, “The Solid Rock” in his book The Babylonian Connection, distributed by Sheldon Emry of America’s Promise....

 

Here’s An Explanation Of Stephen E. Jones’ Intellectual Dishonesty:

When I read this over, the words seemed familiar — they just kept going through my mind. I kept asking myself, Where have I heard them before? Well, I kept going over and over them and then some familiar music began to come to me. It took me about 10 minutes to begin to recognize the melody that went with the words, but I couldn’t think of the name of the song. I proceeded to go and find some old hymn books and started to see if I could find the song that matched the words. I probably spent the better part of an hour doing this, and after I found my song books, I was probably at least another hour in just hunting the song. I didn’t seem to have much luck in the indexes of the hymnals, so I just leafed through the pages one at a time. While I was searching, the words that seemed to come to me were: “I dare not trust the sweetest (something), but (something something) Jesus’ name.” Finally I found it; the name of the song was “The Solid Rock.” and in some song books it is just “Solid Rock.” But the words “the serpent’s lie, Concerning immortality” were not there! Apparently Jones changed these words in order to prove his flawed thesis.

The “Satan is Still in Heaven” Flawed Presupposition

Category: 

If one will check with a good English dictionary, one will find “presupposition” is defined to mean “to take for granted”, or “to suppose or assume beforehand”. The flawed premise that Satan is still presently in heaven is a typical “presupposition” and cannot be substantiated anywhere in Holy Writ! To definitively resolve this issue, it will be necessary to focus on both Yahweh’s domain and where Satan is dwelling at the present time.

With this paper we cover another phase of the intrigues of Ron Wyatt and company. With this issue we will consider that the Exodus from Egypt by the Israelites involved travel by both land and water. In fact, had there not been a nautical route as well as a land route, the whole expedition could not have happened! To demonstrate this, I will quote chapter 2 entitled “The Nile Influence”, from the book On The Track Of The Exodus, by Charles C. Robertson, which I purchased from E. Raymond Capt’s Artisan Sales:

The rise to power of the foremost kingdoms in early history, those of Egypt and Babylon, resulted from their similar control of a great river highway with its outlet to the sea. This is clearly expressed by F.J. Atkins’ How Europe Grew, as follows:

“‘Water is the great carrier. The river stream floats loads which could never in early days have been moved by land. The paths traced out through hills and mountain ranges by rivers and their tributaries are the easiest paths through these barren regions. With the importance of water thus well in mind we shall turn naturally to great watercourses as the seats and centres of our oldest and most stable civilizations; and of all the rivers of the earth, none springs more readily to our minds than that great river of North Africa, the Nile.’

Commerce was then, as now, the main factor in national prosperity; and where trade was water-borne commerce flourished exceedingly. But the great river highways served more especially the purposes of national defence. By their means only could large forces be moved with rapidity over the whole extent of the kingdom, to meet attack at any threatened point.

ELI JAMES’ SPURIOUS POSITION ADOPTING THE FAULTY PREMISE

OF A 6th AND 8th DAY CREATION IN HIS THE GREAT IMPERSONATION,

Page 113

(Page 125 in my edition of the book, which I received from Eli - WRF

 

Eli states: ... In general, it must be said that the myth that Adam was the first human does not hold up to archaeological evidence. Nor is it Biblically tenable either. The fact is that Genesis 1 is talking about early man and Gen. 2 is talking about Adamic man. Observe: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness ... so God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” Vs. 26 & 27. The early man of Gen. 1, the nomadic wanderers and gatherers, was created on the sixth day.

Adam and Eve, however, were created after the seventh day. Early man did not farm or cultivate the earth in a civilized manner, so He went about creating one who does. Gen. 2:7 says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

As we proceed with Ron Wyatt’s cunning story, we are discovering multiple inaccuracies and holes of inordinate dimensions. For instance, Wyatt believed the traditional theory that the Israelites, in their Exodus from Egypt, crossed through the Gulf of Aqaba rather than the Gulf of Suez! Since both of these gulfs were called “The Sea of Reeds”, many have made this same error. Thus Wyatt explored in the wrong place to find Egyptian chariot wheels! The following are some of the postings on the Internet. First at:

http://biblearchaeology.org/post/2008/08/New-Evidence-from-Egypt-on-the-Location-of-the-Exodus-Sea-Crossing-Part-II.aspx where we find (only on this website) by Gary Byers MA:

4. You say: ‘There is concrete archaeological evidence of a Gulf of Aqaba crossing. There is also evidence of the Israelites camping in Saudi Arabia.’ The opposite is the case. There is not one shred of evidence from archaeology to support the Saudi Arabia thesis. This idea was propagated by Ron Wyatt and more recently by Robert Cornuke. Their theories have been thoroughly discredited. This is an excellent book on the subject of Ron Wyatt ...” We also find more at:

If you thought you heard everything there was to hear in the first four brochures on this subject, you ain’t heard nothin’ yet! The clowns who are promoting Ron Wyatt and company must think the rest of us are gullible, incompetent morons! There are so many fallacious postulations provoked by these inciters of twisted conjecture, it is hard to decide on which part of their pretzel factory presuppositions to address next!

Before I get started with this issue, I would like the reader to understand that I am going to address some of Ron Wyatt’s claims that judicially call for cautious investigation, for the narrative we are given by him and his associates, along with his disciples, simply does not correlate with other established facts. So what you are about to read is highly suspect, and you will see why as we go along!

I will start this paper by citing some remarks made by Jonathan Gray during an Internet Radio interview conducted by Eli James on June 13, 2010. About 40 minutes into the interview, the discussion turns to the Egyptian chariots used while pursuing the Israelites through the Sea of Reeds. Here is part of the exchange between Eli James and Jonathan Gray:

James: “Now isn’t there something – couple – unique features of these chariot wheels that are almost impossible to fake?” Gray: “Yes”. James: “Well let’s talk about those.” Gray: “Right, Ron actually took up part of a chariot wheel, took it off to Nassif Mohammed Hassan, director of Antiquities department in Cairo. And this man (Hassan) without any hesitation said the 18th [???]. Now, we are talking about the traditional counting methods they use; 18th Dynasty which is the Thutmose Dynasty. Of course, we have the name Moses, who was adopted into that family. This is from the time, as you people would say, was the time of Moses. And that is because Moses was there at that time. How are you so quick to make an assessment? He (Hassan) said, ‘Because that was the only time when the eight-spoke wheel was ever used’; eight spokes.” James: “So most wheels had what?...six?” Gray: “Six and four and eight.” James: “Six and four and eight? But you say only during the time of the Exodus was the eight-spoke wheel used?” Gray: “That is correct.” So the reader will get a better comprehension of this conversation, I will quote this same incident from the website:

DANGER, DANGER, DANGER – beware of the venom of Ron Wyatt! Lies are like a cobra’s venom, and a cobra can rise up to strike one in the face! Ron Wyatt died August 4, 1999, but wittingly or unwittingly there are others carrying on his evil agenda! BEWARE, BEWARE, BEWARE, the doctrine of Ron Wyatt is the antithesis (opposition) of TWO SEEDLINE TRUTH! After Wyatt’s death, Jonathan Gray took up his phony cause, and today Eli James (who claims to be a Two Seedliner) is close on Gray’s heels!

Eli James, on Internet Radio interviewed Jonathan Gray May 31, 2009 where Gray stated the following: “The beginning of the story there was a prophecy of the coming Messiah, in fact right there in the book of Genesis, Genesis 3:15. Right from the very start the promise of the coming Messiah was made. ... So once again, as an archaeologist, I’m concerned more and more in my own work ... that you can depend upon the Bible. In fact, there is not one theological discovery that has ever been made that has disproved any Bible statement.” Again, James interviewed Gray June 13, 2010, where Gray further stated: “The virgin birth actually proves that Jesus was what He claimed to be, whereas the opponents say that this is a scandal, and Christianity is a fraud ... and I think there are Jewish commentators from the past who say even Genesis 3:15 foretells of a virgin birth ... seed of the woman and not of the man.” “... not of the man”? Oh really?

If you haven’t as yet read part #’s 1 and 2 on this subject, you need to get copies, as this is becoming quite a detective story. A supposed archaeologist by the name of Ron Wyatt claims to have found the Ark of the Covenant with Christ’s blood upon the Mercy Seat of it. But like all less-than-honest manipulators, he fails miserably to keep his story straight. This is especially true when one is attempting to run a pretzel factory with Yahweh’s Word! Wyatt’s contrived story is that while he was going about doing all of this, four angels came to his aid.

Much of this was discussed on an Internet program Talkshoe hosted by Eli James, who has turned out to be quite an avid proponent of Wyatt’s story. On the May 31st, 2009 program, Eli interviewed a man by the name of Jonathan Gray, who claims he joined Wyatt in his endeavor. One of the listeners by the name of Skip Baker made the following comment:

“I just wanted to mention, in the other video tape, if I recall correctly, Ron claimed he videotaped the Ark and had got good pictures of it finally. He goes back to his hotel and got to thinking ‘Well what should I do with this?’ Then he said, of all things, he would go back and ask the four angels that he had met in the cave. So he goes back and asks them, ‘What should I do with this video tape?’ They said, ‘We’ll take it, because God wants it to come out when the mark of the beast happens.’ And he said he gave it to them, and they took it with them, although they didn’t demand it when he came and asked ‘what shall I do with this?’ They said, ‘We’ll take it.’ That was a little tidbit I picked up by watching the movie part.” I have absolutely no question that Baker told the truth about Wyatt here, as I have other witnesses to Wyatt’s absurd “angel story”.

Of all the scam-artists who have ever existed on planet Earth, Ron Wyatt takes first prize over them all! His story of finding the Ark of the Covenant in a cave in or near Jerusalem, along with Christ’s blood on the Mercy Seat, surely places all other dreamed-up scams before his, since the foundation of the world, in an inferior second place! And then he gave his bogus report that, “Each cell contained only 24 chromosomes compared to the normal count of 46 that you and I have”. When Wyatt made the bogus claim that “Christ received 23 chromosomes from Mary, and one ‘y’ chromosome from His heavenly Father to designate a male child”, he outdid his first lie!

As I demonstrated in part #1 of this series, the Mercy Seat is the lid of the Ark of the Covenant and is affiliated with the day of Atonement, not the day of Passover. The important days for assembly in Israel were Passover, Pentecost, Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles. Every one of these days would be fulfilled in the administration of the ministry of Christ. As I demonstrated in my brochure The Day The Word Became Flesh, Christ was born on the Day of Trumpets. On the preparation day of Passover, Christ (the Lamb) was crucified in accordance with the first Passover in Egypt when the lambs were slain and the blood applied to the door posts of each Israelite home. Whereas, the Day of Atonement was celebrated on the 10th day of the seventh month when two goats were selected; one to be killed for a sacrifice, and the other to be let go free with the sins of Israel laid upon it, as being a scapegoat. The last major assembly was the gathering for Tabernacles. Ron Wyatt’s blunder is that he is attempting to have Christ crucified on the Day of Atonement rather than at Passover!

Many negative comments have been leveled against the so-called archaeologist Ron Wyatt, and he is very deserving of most, if not all of them! What I am about to contribute will not add anything positive to his image. I will state right up front that he should have studied his Bible before he claimed he had found Christ’s blood upon the “Mercy Seat”! Today the Internet is replete with websites discussing all of his exploits, both pro and con.

According to Wyatt’s dreamed-up story, he made the astonishing claim that he’d found the socket-hole into which the cross of Christ was anchored. Ron’s story further alleged that beneath that hole he found a crack which led him to a cave, whereupon he made the unsubstantiated assertion that he had found the Ark of the Covenant. But to make his figment even more fantastic, he fallaciously claimed he had found Christ’s blood on the Mercy Seat. I would beg the reader’s patience until I have established some sound Biblical facts, at which time I will reveal Wyatt’s deceptions. So everyone will know precisely the significance of the Mercy Seat, I will quote from the Tyndale Bible Dictionary by Elwell & Comfort, pages 883-884:

“MERCY SEAT Gold slab placed on top of the ark of the covenant with cherubim attached to it on either end, termed the ‘mercy seat’ in many English versions of the Bible (cf. Ex. 25:17-22). The Hebrew word for which ‘mercy seat’ is the translation is technically best rendered as ‘propitiatory,’ a term denoting the removal of wrath by the offering of a gift. The significance of this designation is found in the ceremony performed on the Day of Atonement, held once a year, when blood was sprinkled on the mercy seat to make atonement for the sins of the people of Israel (Lev. 16). Because of the importance of this covering on the ark and the ceremony associated with it, the Holy of Holies in which the ark was housed in the temple is termed the ‘room for the mercy seat’ in 1 Chronicles 28:11 (RSV). The term ‘mercy seat’ came into English use from Luther’s German rendering of the Hebrew term, which is difficult to translate appropriately from the Hebrew (cf. NIV ‘atonement cover’ and NLT ‘Ark’s cover’).

Telegony, Fact Or Fiction?

Category: 

With this exposé, we will scrutinize the hypothesis concerning “telegony”, which is a superstitious belief that goes back hundreds of years. I covered this same subject in an article I entitled Special Notice To All Who Deny Two Seedline, #18. This false premise is rearing up its ugly head again, so I will repeat what I said in that article, adding more data to show just how fraudulent such a belief is! Before we get involved in this discussion, it would be helpful to see how the 1996 Webster’s New Unabridged Dictionary defines it. While sometimes it is advisable to refer to an older dictionary, in this case, with the many advances in the knowledge of genetics, a newer one would be more advantageous.

“telegony ... n. a former belief that a sire can influence the characteristics of the progeny of the female parent and subsequent mates. [1890-95; TELE- + GONY] ...”

The Reader’s Digest Great Encyclopedic Dictionary (1986): “telegony ... n. Biol. The alleged influence of a previous sire on the progeny of the same mother from subsequent impregnation by other males. [<TELE- + GONY] ...”

The Fallacy Of The Pentecostal & Charismatic Movements, #2

Category: 

I will repeat again: There was a true and necessary Day of Pentecost, but what we are witnessing today among these movements is a complete hoax, and there’s nothing Christian about them. There are several disturbing aspects concerning these movements. They are fanatics, concocting false heretical prophecies which Scripture doesn’t support in any way. One group of charismatics based in Kansas City, Missouri demonstrates just how far they will go to abuse the prophet’s divine office. A book promoting this group, Some Said It Thundered by David Pytches (Nashville: Oliver Nelson, 1991), became a best seller. Hundreds, if not thousands, of churches worldwide are patterning their prophetic ministries after the “Kansas City Prophets”. All associated with a single church (formerly Kansas City Fellowship, later renamed Metro Vineyard Fellowship), these men assert they would rather not be labeled “prophets”. They rather prefer to be styled “prophetically gifted”. Thus, they distance themselves from the Old Testament prophets, and neither do they claim infallibility.

Here I am paraphrasing from the book Charismatic Chaos by John F. MacArthur, Jr., pp. 78-79; 367. MacArthur explains all these Kansas City prophets admit they have prophesied falsely. In spite of this, the prophesies delivered by these men are received by thousands as revealed truth from God. Vineyard’s pastor, Mike Bickle, encourages his followers to embrace modern prophecy as God’s means of revealing fresh truth to his church rather than the antiquated prophecies of the Old Testament. Bob Jones, one of the church’s more colorful seers, claims that God speaks to him annually on the Jewish Day of Atonement. Bickle and Jones consider it satisfactory if two-thirds of their prophesies come true. Thus, these so-called prophets claim that they have a word from “the Lord”, but the odds are one-in-three, at the very best, that it will be false. Poor old God, can’t get anything a hundred percent. Yet, in spite of their poor track record, the Kansas City prophets continue to garner exalting accolades, and are often featured in John Wimber’s international conference ministry.

The Fallacy Of The Pentecostal & Charismatic Movements, #1

Category: 

There was a true and necessary Day of Pentecost, but what we are witnessing today in the name of Pentecostalism is completely phony. And what is known today as the charismatic movement is nothing more than neo-pentecostalism of the most detrimental kind. I don’t capitalize the names of these two movements as they don’t deserve it. Whenever one must bring rattlesnakes into a congregation to prove he has the Holy Spirit, he is degrading the Holy Spirit to the lowest degree!

Charles Prince, of Canton, North Carolina was a snake-handling preacher who defied authorities of the state and held public services where deadly snakes were handled and poison was drunk. In August of 1985, Prince died after a rattlesnake bit him and he drank strychnine in a church service to impress his audience in Greenville, Tennessee. If that’s what it takes to prove one has the Holy Spirit, I don’t want any, and neither should you! Of course, Prince was quoting Mark 16:17-18, a passage from a chapter where verses 9 through 20 are well-known to be spurious!

I once rented a nice, little country house in 1953 on route 281, about two miles SW of Wayne, Ohio, from a so-called pentecostal preacher. I was told that when driving his car he would never stop for a stop sign, in order to prove his having the Holy Spirit. A few years after I had moved to another location, I was told that he was killed doing just that. Again, if that’s what it takes to be Spirit-filled, I don’t want any! Maybe he was filled with a spirit similar to that of King Saul.

Pete Peters Endorses the "Azusa Street Revival"

Category: 

It is simply dumbfounding to me what this Israel Identity movement is turning into. For the life of me, I don’t know from where all these daffy characters are getting their wild, unfounded, idiotic ideas. I was already aware that Ted R. Weiland had a lot of erroneous premises such as sending gifts of Bibles to Nigeria and trying to justify it by Scripture, but Pete Peters recently has taken a turn in the same direction! Pete Peters of late, on an audio CD #1071 entitled “Prophecy & Speculation”, at an index of 35:00 and continuing on, makes the claim that the negro William J. Seymour was inspired by the Holy Spirit in 1906 at Los Angeles, California. Furthermore, Pete Peters connects the Azusa Street Revival and the tongue-wagging negro William Seymour with his theory of calendar thumb days. If you are not already informed, and if you don’t follow “the prophet” Pete Peters and his convoluted calendar, then according to him, you’re going straight to hell. You may ask: ‘why should Clifton A. Emahiser be concerned about what Pete Peters is promoting?’ The answer is: because we are either gathering the sheep or we are scattering them! (Matt. 12:30). While many Israel Identity believers also read material from Peters, my own readers have inquired about this from me, and so I shall address it. Anytime we start following an enosh, one not of our race, and place him in a position of authority over us, we are doing contrary to what Yahweh instructed us to do!

Right: “Rabbi” Pete Peters shows his true colors, in more ways than one.  Allegedly this picture of Pete Peters dressed up like a rabbi was supposed to be a joke of some kind. 1 Thess. 5:22 says: "Abstain from all appearance of evil." Peters should be exposed for his taking it upon himself to appear like a Christ-killing Canaanite-jew!

Hear it from the horse’s mouth!  Over and over again, Pete Peters is a hater of Whites and a lover of negroes!
