I recently saw a blog article posted by "yourphariseefriend".
Unfortunately his view of Messiah has been skewed by what is today called christ-ianity as well as probably his own Judaism or similar background all of which make Torah void through their own traditions and abuses. Not much has changed from the time of the true Messiah/Mashiak Y'shua who now also bears a false name "Jesus" and a religion contradictory to what he really taught-namely Torah obedience to the Heavenly Father. "christ-ianity" and Pharisaism are actually not worlds apart as you will see their lawlessness operates in much the same way. Pharisaism justifies the death of the true Messiah by making a lawless false accusation against him and christianity justifies the resurrection of a false Messiah by making him to be a teacher of lawlessness. Y'shua, however, as we know, is the true Torah obedient Messiah and true prophet.
So without further ado here is his article which is then followed by my reply, then his reply (by referring me to another of his blog articles) and finally my reply to that as well ( he did not respond as yet )
Isaiah 53 Teaches that Jesus is NOT the Messiah

Isaiah 53 Teaches that Jesus is NOT the Messiah
Christian missionaries point to the passage Isaiah 52:13 thru 53:12 as the “ultimate proof” for their belief in Jesus. A missionary once admitted to me that when his beliefs are challenged by counter-missionaries, he goes back and reads Isaiah 53 in order to be strengthened in his Christian faith.
This same missionary also admitted to me that the fact that Jesus is the most respected Jew in world history also encourages him in his faith. I understand that this particular missionary does not stand alone. Many Christians draw confidence in Jesus from the passage in Isaiah 53 and from the far-reaching reputation that Jesus enjoys.
I find this amazing. These two concepts cancel each other out. The fact that Jesus is so widely respected categorically disqualifies him from claiming the title of the suffering servant of Isaiah 53. There is no individual in the history of mankind that is more clearly disqualified from claiming this Scriptural title than is the Christian Jesus.
The suffering servant of the Lord is despised until his ultimate exaltation. The entire thrust of the passage in Isaiah is that the despised servant of the Lord will shock the world when the arm of the Lord is openly revealed upon him.
At this point in time, the arm of the Lord is not openly revealed upon anyone. Both Jews and Christians look forward to a day when the arm of the Lord is openly revealed upon God’s true servant and all the ends of the earth will clearly know the truth.
But Isaiah teaches us that when the arm of the Lord is ultimately revealed, the world will react with shock and consternation (Isaiah 53:1). This tells us that someone who is widely respected BEFORE the arm of the Lord is revealed – CANNOT be the servant that Isaiah was talking about. The fact that Jesus is the most widely respected person on earth – at this pointing time – BEFORE the arm of the Lord is revealed – is the clearest indication that this man’s claim for the title: “suffering servant” – is completely unjustified.
MY REPLY to his above article :
Firstly Messiah has come only once already AND will return therefore Isaiah has not finished his prophecy to you or to me concerning him.
Mat5:17 ¶Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.
Heaven and earth have not yet passed neither has all been fulfilled in the prophets including Isaiah.
I beg to differ with you 100% when you say that Mashiak has been respected. How can we even say that he has been respected? In what way has he been respected? He has been despised and his Father blasphemed.
Most of us honest, truly Torah observant men, would clearly see that the true Mashiak in scripture has indeed been despised by the world in main-stream religion rather than respected.
Every one that has persecuted and despised the truly obedient talmidim (disciple) has also despised and persecuted Mashiak. How many were killed for keeping sabbath alone?
Mashiak our only Rabbi from the Father as he declared himself is despised every day
when the two main false religions continue to call men Rabbi or Father
Mat 23:8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Rabbi, even Mashiak; and all ye are brethren.
9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your
Father, which is in heaven.
So the world despises the Word (Torah) that he taught of his Father and therefore they despise him.
This has been done through the formation of Christianity-Roman Catholicism which incorporates the Universal religions to Baal as well. It has changed Mashiak’s name to that of a Graeco-Roman god (Jesus J-Zeus), given him a Greek god celebration (25 December of Saturnalia, Mithra etc) and then taught that he came to abolish Torah instead of making it honourable, and they make Mashiak to be Creator Elohim himself instead of the begotten Son, when he clearly never taught such a blasphemy against his Father.
Mashiak himself declares that by the time he returns-will he find faith? In other words he is increasingly despised as time goes.
Lk 18:7 And shall not Elohim avenge his own elect, which cry day
and night unto him, though he bear long with them? (THE UNJUST WHO
8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.
Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith (aman) on the earth?
It is indeed going to be a shock to a faithless world especially the false religions who have no “aman” but rather vain philosophy and that have twisted Torah, added to it and and made it void. When Mashiak returns the arm of Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh is revealed upon his Son.
The first time Mashiak came as the suffering servant the second time he comes as the appointed Judge. His own people did not heed his first coming as a humble fellow servant-King when it was declared he would come in such a fashion by Zechariah and most therefore missed his identity.
Zech 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
Mashiak has already been established as SPIRITUAL king of his Father’s kingdom which he declared is not quantified or located, but is at hand for it is SPIRITUALLY IN us who have the spirit (Ruach ha kodesh) of the Father, so:
Mashiak’s first coming as a lowly servant but spiritual king while on earth BUT then the second coming as a True Righteous Judge indeed a shock to the world:
Revelations: 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Yahusha: worship God(Ehyeh asher Ehyeh): for the testimony of Yahusha is the spirit of prophecy. 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
The heavenly Father will be all in all when his Son Mashiak has
overcome death ie the righteous are resurrected to eternal life and
the wicked are resurrected to be destroyed.
It is when Mashiak hands the Spiritual Kingdom, which he is administering now in us, back to his Father that Ehyeh asher Ehyeh will indeed be what He will be when his Son is again subject to Him.
1 Cor 15:23
But every man in his own order: Mashiak the firstfruits; afterward they that are Mashiak’s at his coming. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to Elohim, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God (Ehyeh asher Ehyeh) may be all in all.
In reply he then referred me to his other article which goes like this :
Posted on May 17, 2011 by yourphariseefriend
Christian missionaries contend that the Jewish people should accept Jesus as a true prophet.
Because he wasn’t.
How can you be so sure?
Simple – The same system that tells me that Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel were true prophets, tells me that Jesus was not.
Well, how do you know that the prophets of the Jewish Scriptures were authentic?
I will tell you in a minute – but before I answer your question, I have a question of my own for you. Did you ever think about this? Did you ever wonder how it is that we know that the prophets of the Jewish Scriptures are for real and that the writings of the Jewish Scripture were authored with Divine inspiration?
Did you have a clear and straightforward understanding of the method that we should use to sort out the true prophets from the frauds – and then did you carefully and patiently apply this test to Jesus – and only after he passed with flying colors – then, and only then, did you accept him? Or did you perhaps accept Jesus before you ever thought about this question?
So how do we know that the Jewish Scriptures are authentic?
We must first recognize that God appointed a witness nation (Isaiah 43:10, 12; 44:8). God had demonstrated to the Jewish people in a clear and unequivocal way – that He is the Lord and that there is no other (Deuteronomy 4:15, 35).
We are confident that Israel is His witness nation because no national entity claims any experience that could be compared to ours (Deuteronomy 4:32-35).
When the claimant to prophecy presented their claim – the Jewish people asked themselves: is this man or woman speaking in the name of the God we know from Sinai? (Deuteronomy 18:20) Is he or she encouraging worship of an entity other than the God we know from Sinai? (Deuteronomy 13:3)
Jesus did not pass this test.
There is another test that God provided to sort the true prophet from the fraud. If a prediction of the prophet fails to materialize, then we can be sure that the prophet is a fraud (Deuteronomy 18:22). This one is tricky though. You see, the followers of false prophets were never short of excuses when the predictions of their “prophet” failed to materialize. How could we know if our bias, for or against, the claimant to prophecy is confusing us or not?
In these situations we are directed to turn to the judges of Israel(Deuteronomy 17:8, 9 – 2Chronicles 19:11).
We know their verdict.
If you do not accept the authority of Israel and her judges to pass judgment on Jesus, please be consistent, and reject her Bible as well.
To this I then replied further with the following (by the way I did not receive any further response from yourphariseefriend after sending this)
FALSE PRIESTS NOT FALSE PROPHET.
Perhaps you should know better.
The pseudo-priesthood acting at the time of Messiah were self-appointed and operating in a temple built by the nominal Jew, Herod (a Roman pleaser) which was cleaned out for selling on the sabbath and then destroyed for killing the prophets and especially the one who prophesied its destruction.
Furthermore the heavenly Father warns that those who bear false witness shall receive the same punishment. The false priests tried to destroy the temple of Y'shua (which is the body of Ya) and thus their temple (stone house of Ya) was destroyed in return-strike one in fulfilment of the law and prophecy by a true prophet and by Torah
15 ¶One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. 16 ¶If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong 17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before Yah, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days; 18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, IF THE WITNESS BE A FALSE WITNESS, AND HATH TESTIFIED FALSELY AGAINST HIS BROTHER; 19 THEN SHALL YE DO UNTO HIM, AS HE HAD THOUGHT TO HAVE DONE UNTO HIS BROTHER: SO SHALT THOU PUT THE EVIL AWAY FROM AMONG YOU. 20 AND THOSE WHICH REMAIN SHALL HEAR, AND FEAR, AND SHALL HENCEFORTH COMMIT NO MORE ANY SUCH EVIL AMONG YOU. 21 AND THINE EYE SHALL NOT PITY; BUT LIFE SHALL GO FOR LIFE, EYE FOR EYE, TOOTH FOR TOOTH, HAND FOR HAND, FOOT FOR FOOT.
Strike two was the fulfilment of an end to sacrifices at the date set out by prophet Daniel by Messiah the true prophet.
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
You refer to the prophets who were true such as Isaiah etc, as if they were also not under the persecution of corrupt councils in the land that Ya had given, when this was happening all along and the false prophets were being allowed to
prophesy by the means of the corrupt priests by their OWN means (ie OWN authority) . So to merely assume that one who sits in the seat of Moses is infallible is much like a Pope to an idolatrous catholic.
The fact that the council had to pass Messiah over to Pilate to be killed shows that the priesthood was not operating in the same way as you pretend it was as laid out by Ya in Deuteronomy. Jerusalem was under PAX, not subject to an anointed King appointed by Ya but to Rome and had been under the secular "King of the Jews" ,half Roman Herod, who was far from Ya-fearing in any case. Thus their ruling still passed through the hands of Pilate who then washed his hands of the matter and found Messiah innocent. The Father shows that ONE WITNESS declared him innocent and that the priests acted UNLAWFULLY from the start:
59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, SOUGHT FALSE WITNESS against Messiah, to put him to death; 60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two FALSE witnesses, 61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of Yah, and to build it in three days.
The sign of your and my Prophet Jonah bore witness of a three days and nights in the grave , but did the priests even comprehend or listen to the prophets NO!!! The true prophets and more than a couple of false witnesses are what TRUE priests would have used to decide the matter but these priests did things by their OWN means.
They were looking for FALSE WITNESS TO PUT HIM TO DEATH a very big no no!!
My fellow Torah reader what does our Father say?
Ex 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
11 Tim 2:5 8 But we know that the law is good, IF a man (INCLUDING A PRIEST) use it lawfully;
But we know the priests were not lawful therefore neither good. They did not heed the witness of the Roman, Pilate, now did they??
Instead, then, the people, the rabble were left to be the judges.
The thinking that you have used here is no different to the same false teaching that we see among this mainstream catholic "christianity" who profess the saying "touch not god's annointed" referring to demonized, non Torah obedient, so-called miracle healing false teachers eg Benny Hinn etc insinuating that Ya does not allow us to expose or challenge false doctrine, what then of Samuel the prophet who spoke to King Saul or John the baptiser who told king Herod off for not keeping Torah-he lost his head -where were the priests then why did they not support John in his upholding of the Torah??? They were too busy pleasing the half Roman.
Likewise the Rabbis (call no man Rabbi save Y'shua) say to their victims that the Torah is too hard to understand themselves and they must obey what the Rabbi says even when it contradicts Torah-thus we have Talmudism etc.
All Our Heavenly Father has shown and allowed through his unfair sentence as prophesied, that His Son would be falsely accused :
Is 53: 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
thus making a shame of the powers and principalities that have acted against the Torah from the very top.
Col 2:15 15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
The corrupt priesthood is the very thing that was exposed through his death when he chose to lay his life down in that corrupt system, and that is why he has been appointed the True And Righteous Judge who will return as such.
When your fellow Pharisee, and our apostle Paul and Peter were before the council, again being judged by false witnesses, they made it plain as to who was higher in authority.
Acts5:32 29 ¶Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey Ya rather than men.
32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Ruach ha Kodesh, whom Ya hath given to them that obey him. 33 ¶When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them. 34 Then stood there up one in the council, a PHARISEE, NAMED GAMALIEL, A DOCTOR OF THE LAW, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space; 35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men. 36 For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought. 37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed. 38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: 39 But if it be of Ya, ye cannot overthrow it; LEST HAPLY YE BE FOUND EVEN TO FIGHT AGAINST YA. 40 And to him they agreed:
Did the council of the Pharisee, Gamaliel then not work out and cancel the council of the false priests who had tried to destroy the work of Messiah??? was Gamaliel not honouring Ya above the council of men?
LEST HAPLY YE BE FOUND EVEN TO FIGHT AGAINST YA.
Yes he was and it was contrary to how the false priests at Y'shua's hearing operated.
So why have you not heeded the verdict of the prophet then who you call false, our Messiah Eoshoa/ Y'shua
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art messiah, the Son of the living Ya. 17 And Y'shua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar–jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and [BUT] upon this [THAT] rock (referring to the Father not Peter or a Pope) I will build my congregation; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Gamaliel made true council and was not as spineless as those so-called priests. Ya is no respector of persons- King David learnt that early when he sinned -even he suffered loss but repented for the better.
The Father has witnessed such things by these false priests over and over again amongst his chosen people who allow false prophets to prophesy and the true ones to be killed. The priesthood was not INFALLIBLE then and far less so in Mesisah's time following Ichabod.
You would do well my friend to hear your true prophet's warning and repent of such error, then
Jer 5: 30 A wonderful and horrible thing is committed IN THE LAND;31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by
their means* ; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
* yad -by themselves, presumptuously etc etc ie self appointed ruling.
So I ask what will you do?????
I find it ironic too that the word presumptuous is mentioned here referring now directly to the priests themselves since your quote
of Deuteronomy contains 17:12 And the man that will do PRESUMPTUOUSLY, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there BEFORE Ya THY Eil/Elohim, or unto the judge,
It is accepted that they are to be BEFORE YA when judging ie SERVING HIM LAWFULLY just as it is assumed that the parent is LAWFUL
before Ya and the child can thus honour him, but what if his parent does not the will of the Heavenly Father???
Mat 12:48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
Or What of Ezekiel another one of our true Prophets, do you heed his voice?
EZEKIEL 22: 25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. 26 HER PRIESTS HAVE VIOLATED MY LAW, and have profaned mine kodesh things: they have put no difference between the separated and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. 27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. 28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Master Ya, when the Master hath not spoken.
29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? 34 ¶Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
It would have been the priests themselves who killed this true prophet Zacharias since only they were allowed in this section of the temple or else it was the scribes and /Pharisees who entered there unlawfully -either way : UNLAWFUL and blasphemous!!
I do not need to make any excuse for my prophet who rose again and gave the sign of Jonah, the physical temple was also destroyed much to the contradiction of the claim that not every stone fell.Those who worship instead the stones of a fort ie wailing wall, rather than seeing the Corner stone Messiah that has been laid upon Ya the Rock and we are to be the living stones of that house of Ya, that we are the temple and not a temple built with hands and that we have now a High Priest whose name is Y'shua/Eoshoa the begotten son of the livng Ya.
Why do men pray to dead stones? Do they have ears? Have they not already spoken when the Son said they will fall. Why not hear the living Ya whose son will conquer death itself when he raises his righteous people to life at the last day.
If you regard men above Ya and his Torah then you have an idolatrous religion.
not even the true prophet Eoshoa/Y'shua was seen to be doing that by the very PHARISEES as stated themselves :
Mat 22: 15 ¶Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. 16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of Ya in truth, NEITHER CAREST THOU FOR ANY MAN: FOR THOU REGARDEST NOT THE PERSON OF MEN.
the true idolatry is that of men worshipping men and that was the real thorn in the side for most Pharisees since Y'shua exposed this in them.
But not all were this way, by the mercy of Ya, for we find men of faith like Joseph of Aramethaea.
Now what of him? -did he accept the Sanhedrin council did he accept his death -NO he did not since he was indeed a disciple (talmidim) of Eoshoa /Y'shu and therefore awaited his coming Kingdom by faith. Thus his faith was put into action:
43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor (member of the SANHEDRIN), WHICH ALSO WAITED FOR THE KINGDOM OF YA, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Y'shua. 44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. 45 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
Pliate and Joseph were two in the whole process who did NOT accept the FALSE PRIESTS authority and neither do I since
we must obey Ya rather than men- the first commandment which is above every other, Torah must be followed in that spirit and not be manipulated in order to please man which your fellow Pharisee friend Paul declared too.
21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged. 22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, FEARING YA: 23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the MASTER, and NOT unto men;
Nonetheless having said all, Ya had sent his son to die as prophesied and his Son laid down his own life to fulfil the requirement that he had to be our passover lamb. It was the will of the Father that sent him to his death and resurrection it was not by the will of the false priests. They did not receive that power even though they were false except that it was given to them as scripture itself testifies. So we do not see the priests as the end to the prophet and sent saviour Y'shua, but the beginning of our faith and thus the wisdom(TORAH) of Ya which confounds the worldly wise.
John 10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 18 No man taketh it from me, BUT I LAY IT DOWN OF MYSELF. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. THIS COMMANDMENT HAVE I RECEIVED OF MY FATHER.
Shalom to you if you abide in the doctrine of the law and the true prophets.
To this I would also like to have added as written by the True Prophet against those false priests who abuse Torah by their position because they think they must be obeyed regardless of how they are leading.
Jer 26:4 (straight from KJV)
And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you, 5 To hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up early, and sending them, but ye have not hearkened; 6 Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth. 7 So the priests and the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the LORD. 8 ¶Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt surely die. 9 Why hast thou prophesied in the name of the LORD, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be desolate without an inhabitant? And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the house of the LORD. 10 ¶When the princes of Judah heard these things, then they came up from the king's house unto the house of the LORD, and sat down in the entry of the new gate of the LORD'S house.*n1 11 Then spake the priests and the prophets unto the princes and to all the people, saying, This man is worthy to die; for he hath prophesied against this city, as ye have heard with your ears.*n2 12 ¶Then spake Jeremiah unto all the princes and to all the people, saying, The LORD sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that ye have heard. 13 Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you. 14 As for me, behold, I am in your hand: do with me as seemeth good and meet unto you.*n3 15 But know ye for certain, that if ye put me to death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof: for of a truth the LORD hath sent me unto you to speak all these words in your ears. 16 ¶Then said the princes and all the people unto the priests and to the prophets; This man is not worthy to die: for he hath spoken to us in the name of the LORD our God. 17 Then rose up certain of the elders of the land, and spake to all the assembly of the people, saying, 18 Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and spake to all the people of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Zion shall be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of a forest. 19 Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all Judah put him at all to death? did he not fear the LORD, and besought the LORD, and the LORD repented him of the evil which he had pronounced against them? Thus might we procure great evil against our souls.*n4 20 And there was also a man that prophesied in the name of the LORD, Urijah the son of Shemaiah of Kirjath–jearim, who prophesied against this city and against this land according to all the words of Jeremiah: 21 And when Jehoiakim the king, with all his mighty men, and all the princes, heard his words, the king sought to put him to death: but when Urijah heard it, he was afraid, and fled, and went into Egypt;
And another true prophet Hosea 4:6
¶My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (of Torah): because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy Elohim, I will also forget thy children.
This is a lesson to those who think that their position or rank as priest, pastor or parent allows them to be lawless and abuse that position without consequence
They are rejected by Ya, it is not those who rebuke them for their lawlessness (Anti-Torah) that are rejected.
