Simple Truth: Jesus is not the Messiah

From wil’Liam Hall (with adaptations by me)

jesus: It’s not about opinions or emotions. It’s about the FACTS:

FACT: “Christ” is the Greek word for “Messiah”
FACT: “Messiah” is the transliteration of a Hebrew word that means “anointed”
FACT: For a person who is to be king or priest to be called by that special word for “anointed”, oil must be poured on that person by a Priest or Prophet.
FACT: jesus was never anointed by a Priest or by a Prophet.
FACT: Being that jesus was never anointed with oil by a Priest or Prophet, he cannot rightfully be called “Christ/Messiah/Anointed”

FACT: jesus is “not” the Messiah.

About hesedyahu

I'm a gentile living in UK, a person who has chosen to take upon himself the responsibility God has given to all gentiles. God is the greatest aspect of my life and He has blessed me with a family. I used to be a christian, but I learnt the errors of my ways. I love music. I love to play it on the instruments I can play, I love to close my eyes and feel the groove of it. I wrote my songs when I was single and not so happy and since I've been married, I haven't written as much. I guess that shows how happy and blessed I am. What else is there?

    Just one quick comment –
    If my memory serves me correct, then I think King Herod was called “messiah” in Isaiah and he was not properly smeared with the prescribed oil as far as I know.
    Personally, I think that may be one of the weaker affirmations about Jesus not being the messiah. In my opinion, there are many others that carry a stronger weight.
    Such as Isaiah 11, which describes what we believe to be speaking of a messiah, where it says “he will fear Hashem”.
    How can, what Christians believe is a “part” of G-d, fear himself? I mean sometimes I look in the mirror in the morning and get quite a scare, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. Even if it means “in awe of”, how can G-d be in awe of Himself?

      Isaiah 45, it was Koresh or Cyrus. I don’t know how literal that was. But you are right it is a possible response. And again I agree, it’s a weak response for a glaringly obvious opinion, two in fact. You may know them already. 1) at least Cyrus was still a literal king; 2) the Nazarene was claiming to be the messiah king of Israel (hence the use of Micah 5) which gives him no way out of the importance of the right anointing. I know you know these things already. But you are so right about the schizophrenic nature of the christian god, as well as the contradictory nature. You and I both know this. It’s a bit like the notion of God being a servant, a contradiction in terms; you and I think to ourselves, what can God fear or be in awe of? The very concept is utterly utterly ridiculous and self cancelling.

    It was Cyrus, thank you!

    Yes, the real fact is that just about every verse in the Tanach that we refer to as messianic, has words containing “shoot of Jesse” , “King David” or something of the like. The overall complete picture is CLEAR when you read these verses as they all have the same theme as to what the world will be like when this person arrives. The focus is on WHAT WILL HAPPEN, not the person. That is why we do not know who it will be.

    And we can see that Jesus did not fulfill any of those verses. The only verses Christians claimed he fulfilled are ones that mostly have nothing to do with a future anointed King and have no references to the shoot of Jesse of King David.

    But you know that as well, so we’re basically just reaffirming what we already know!

  4. What a stupid argument. Because Jesus not was anointed by any man on earth, He could not be anointed by God? He, who was a priest in the same order as Melchizedek, the “man” with no parents.

      Thanks for admitting that Jesus was not a Davidic king which demands an earthly anointing, not one by God. Thanks for admitting that Jesus didn’t have a biological parent who was a son of David which automatically disqualifies him from being a descendant of David with any rights to the Davidic throne. Thanks for also stating that Jesus was part of a priesthood that the Jewish Bible itself gives no atoning quality. So essentially you’ve proved my point. Thanks for your assistance.

      In addition, since you brought up the “stupid argument” accusation, the argument of the anonymous author of Hebrews states, that Melchizedek has no parents, lacks any sense when it comes to a consistent understanding of scripture. There are so many people mentioned in the Jewish Bible who don’t have any parents mentioned, good and bad people. If Melchizedek foreshadows your failed Messiah candidate, then maybe the king of Sodom from the same chapter (Gen 14) foreshadows him too, or the wicked king Adoni-tzedek. Or maybe the anonymous writer of Hebrews just picks and chooses what suits his fancy (I guess you could say that he was led by some “holy spirit” only I’d already be able to tell that that spirit wasn’t so holy.)

      • The kingdom of David was on earth, 40 years. The kingdom of Jesus Christ is not of this world, yet. Is to come for 1000 years.

        “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there into.

        For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
        But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.

        And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Luke 21.

        Times of the Gentiles are soon finished. Then your eyes will be anointed. There is no time for hate, only love. The God of Moses is Love. How could God stand them for more than 40 years in the desert without killing them all, except Moses? Jesus Christ is God revealed.

        “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

        For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

        He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

        For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” John 3.

        Thanks for confirming the fact that Jesus is not a Davidic king having a different reign and a different throne entirely. He is therefore not the promised the Messiah. Thanks for also showing that Jesus hasn’t fulfilled prophecies about the promised future Davidic king.

        Since the rest of what you say is based on that, then the rest of what you say is worthless.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but if I’m not mistaken Melchizedek wasn’t even Jewish, was he? The nation of Israel hadn’t even been established in the Book of Genesis, let alone Jewish Priests.

    Not to mention the fact the Hebrew word means “king of righteousness” and is not necessarily a specific person.

    Not so sure why Christians want to relate Jesus to a non Jewish priest??
