1 Then came together unto Him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.
Many of the Pharisees and scribes (as you can see in Matthew 23:29-36) being Kenites who are the stones worn smooth that came from the false rock we are told to enumerate via the Greek word translated as count in Revelation 13:18.
Understanding who the Kenites are leads to understanding that their father, the Devil, will appear as the antichrist at the 6th seal, the 6th trumpet and the 6th vial in Jerusalem.
2 And when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
4 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
Here we see the influence of ‘the tradition of the elders’ which, in the futurist sense, looks forward to the negative influence the Kenites now hold over most Christians through the four hidden dynasties whereby they plant the seed of the mark of the beast that will come to fruition at 666.
In verses 24-31 we will see the land of Tyre (which means ‘rock’) and Sidon (which means ‘catching fish’ but here it means the opposite of being used to bring people into the TRUE many-membered body) which ultimately symbolize the Kenites and the Christians who take part in the great apostasy when they get deceived into worshipping Satan instead of Jesus.
In other words, ‘Tyre and Sidon’ symbolize the ‘nakar’ and the ‘zur’ we saw types of in the last chapter.
5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, Why walk not Thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
The disciples of Jesus here being symbolic of those with the seal of God in their forehead who know how to count the stones worn smooth and will not get taken in by the deception.
To ‘eat bread’ is obviously symbolic of absorbing God’s word, but those who have been brainwashed by the four hidden dynasties are not going to be able to fully comprehend the full truth as opposed to those of the Zadok who have the seal of God in their forehead throughout the entire ‘hour of temptation’ whereby they understand the chronological order of events that lead up to the return of the TRUE Christ at the 7th trumpet, the 7th vial and immediately after the ‘half an hour’ written of in the 7th seal.
6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
7 Howbeit in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Jesus is quoting from verse 13 of Isaiah 29 here and, again, in the futurist sense, this false teaching via the four hidden dynasties is what keeps the masses brainwashed, distracted and oblivious to the truth of God’s word.
The four hidden dynasties of Education, Economics, Politics and Religion are the four horns of Zechariah 1 which are the opposite of the four carpenters which symbolize the Law, the Prophets, the Gospels and the Epistles whereby the seed of the seal of God is planted in the minds of many throughout the globe during the grace period of the 5th trumpet we are now in.
8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
9 And He said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
In other words, in order to make their own corrupt organization even richer, they would teach people that giving them money and letting their elderly parents starve was keeping in line with the law God gave to Moses.
“Honour thy father and thy mother’ means to take care of them in their old age and this ‘generation of vipers’ as Jesus calls them in Matthew 23:33 seemed to have no problem taking food from elderly people in order to line their own pockets.
Here we can see even nearly 2,000 years ago ‘the balances of deceit’ being used to control the masses just as it is now, especially ever since 1913 when the hidden dynasty of economics was globlalized.
We also see here how economics and religion worked hand in hand even then because of the Kenite-infiltrated priesthood and you do not have to look very far to find a Christian church infested with traditions nowhere to be found in God’s word.
14 And when He had called all the people unto Him, He said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
Again, to eat bread with ‘unwashen’ hands means to absorb God’s word while disregarding ‘the traditions of the elders’ or anything else contrary to what our Father teaches us chapter by chapter and verse by verse.
As we know from Jeremiah 17:5, ‘Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.’
17 And when He was entered into the house from the people, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable.
18 And He saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
False doctrine enters into the heart (which means ‘the mind’) and not into the belly just as the truth of God’s word enters into the mind also.
20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
But, on the other hand, when we disregard ‘the traditions of men’ and study our Father’s Word chapter by chapter and verse by verse with understanding we can then nip these ‘evil things’ that ‘come from within’ at the bud (so to speak) because when we begin to grow more and more familiar with the truth, we begin to recognize those ‘evil things’ that ‘come from within’ more and more, then being able to learn how to better keep our flesh at bay.
This is the opposite of what the four horns do to a person.
The four hidden dynasties will even subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) encourage the masses to nurture those ‘evil things’ that ‘come from within’ more and more in the build-up to 666 when most Christians will become the ‘zur’ (which means an apostate) because of the deception of the ‘nakar’ (which means those foreign to Christianity, especially the Kenites) as we saw back in the last chapter also.
Page 871 of the Companion Bible is where you can read of the ‘strange’ woman and/or the ‘stranger’ and in this next verse we see Tyre (which is symbolic of the ‘nakar’) and Sidon, (which is symbolic of the ‘zur’) looking forward to the great apostasy when the false rock appears in Jerusalem claiming to be Jesus returned.
24 And from thence He arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but He could not be hid.
25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of Him, and came and fell at His feet:
26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought Him that He would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.
As we know from Daniel 8, Greece was the type of the he goat which is symbolic ultimately of the shadow government of the Kenites.
This woman here though obviously believes in Christ Jesus and you could even see here as the opposite of Herodias who we saw in the last chapter as a type of the Jezebel Christ speaks of in Revelation 2 in the letter to the church in Thyatira.
Remember this is in Tyre (which means ‘rock’) and we are to count the stones worn smooth (who are the Kenites) to understand who the false rock is and when he will appear as the antichrist in Jerusalem.
27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.
Those now spiritually ‘in Greece’ (meaning under the spell of the four hidden dynasties) upon believing upon Christ Jesus can be cleansed and then able to begin studying God’s word with understanding which is what will ultimately dismantle the deception planted within the minds of many.
28 And she answered and said unto Him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.
29 And He said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.
30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
This woman’s daughter having the devil removed from her is symbolic of the reversal of the deception we saw in the last chapter within the mind of the daughter of Herodias (who symbolized the ‘zur’) in the case of those who come out of the deception because of what the Holy Spirit will say through those who get delivered up during the 6th trumpet.
31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, He came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.
32 And they bring unto Him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put His hand upon him.
33 And He took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and He spit, and touched his tongue;
34 And looking up to heaven, He sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.
35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.
This being symbolic of being given the ‘ears to hear’ we saw back in verse 16 whereby we can absorb the truth of God’s word with understanding, then being able to bring forth the good things from within as opposed to the evil things we saw in verse 23.
Ultimately, those who have ‘ears to hear’ during the latter half of ‘the hour of temptation’ will get delivered up and the Holy Spirit will speak through them in a language understood in the language of whoever hears it just as it was in the Book of Acts, beginning in Jerusalem with the twelve apostles.
The seed of the seal of God will, at that time, come to fruition within the minds it was planted within during the grace period of the 5th trumpet via the four carpenters who, again, are symbolic of the Law, the Prophets, the Gospels and the Epistles contained within the pages of what we call The Bible.
36 And He charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;
37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: He maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
