    Baptist History by Baptists 1a.

    Satan persecuted the churches of Jesus Christ first by the Jews.


    This persecution is recorded in the book of Acts. It is also mentioned in some of the Epistles of the New Testament.
    Next, Satan used the Roman Empire to persecute the churches of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    There were at least ten severe persecutions beginning with Nero and ending with Diocletian. These persecutions resulted in the death of a very large number of Christians.


    Satan used the Roman Empire to persecute the Lord's churches while Satan was establishing a "church" of his own with which to oppose and persecute the true churches of Jesus Christ.

    Much of this Baptist History Notebook will deal with the development of Satan's church; Biblically speaking: "the synagogue of Satan", Revelation 3:9, and its persecution of the churches of our Lord.
    ...
    The Church Jesus Christ Built.
    ...
    In Discussing how JESUS ESTABLISHES HIS CHURCHES and HOW AFTERWARD Satan Establishes his Counterfeit "Church" by Changing Jesus' Church Government, we must begin with the churches which Jesus built and observe how Satan sought to corrupt it from within which resulted in a separation by the pure churches from the corrupt churches. ...

    "And I say also unto thee,That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church: and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it"

    (Matthew 16:18).
    ...

    The word "church" means assembly.
    ...

    The Lord said He would build "His" (My) church.

    8.5.2a The Baptist History Notebook Chapter 2: JESUS ESTABLISHES HIS CHURCHES. Satan Establishes his Counterfeit “Church” by Changing Jesus’ Church Government.

    The New Testament shows that the Jews provoked Rome to persecute Christians.

    Yeah, and delivered the Christian's Perfect Leader to Rome, to be Crucified.

    Are you claiming Peter was perfect?

    Are they to be accused of wrong for doing that which God planned?

    22“Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know— 23this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. 24God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.
    And the next day, Peter said,
    17“And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 18But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled.
    Why then is there a despising of the Jews?

    If someone acts out of ignorance, certainly they are still to be held accountable, for ignorance is not permission for innocence to be granted, but the force of the condemnation is differently determined.

    The greatest threat were/are those IN the fellowship who desired to make Gentiles into Jews and puffing their heritage as putting them in a higher strata before God. Therefore, some became Jews (heritage) who were not, and some claiming redemption (believers), who were not, are that group from Satan.

    That assembly (synagogue) from Satan will continue as part of the true church until the millennial reign. They are not some outside force but intricate in every true church.

    This is seen as part of the parable found in Matthew 13:24-30.

    The Holy Spirit places the blame squarely on the Jews.

    How is it that one can escape the designs and purposes of God?

    Do “we” get to assign blame?

    When Peter spoke of the crucifixion and related the facts concerning the roles, he certainly laid out the actions of both Rome and Jews, but i’m Not convinced he blamed them or even condemned them.

    Rather, he spoke in terms that indicate that which they did was from ignorance, yet such ignorance was not an excuse but needed repentance.

    According to Acts, the larger amount of the Jews did repent, but the power impressed leadership remained obstinate. Here is an example:
    1And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came upon them, 2greatly annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.3And they arrested them and put them in custody until the next day, for it was already evening.

    Matthew 13:24-30 is not a Teaching regarding The Lord's True Bible churches at all. Nor, the synagogue of Satan.

    It Teaches about The Kingdom of God.

    I agree, which is why Peter called for repentance, and could with all authority tell the Jews,
    25You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed.’ 26God, having raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you by turning every one of you from your wickedness.”

    Did all turn? Of course not.

    But WHO did the turning of those who did turn? God did.

    They did not of their own initiative turn themself.

    By that same authority, God will (according to the prophets) again place His authority upon the Jews.

    The call goes out in this day, to all who are given ears to hear, “Repent, Redemption draws near!”

    No, your are wrong.

    The parable is among others pertaining to salvation, the true churc, which is directly related to the kingdom.

    I am surprised you do not recognize this basic to the true church?

    When harvest is made, the wheat is threshed, and the winnowing purges the chaff so that only the true wheat placed in the prepared place.

    This would include all people remaining on Earth
    and is a description Jesus Makes of The End of The World and Time.

    That's it. He Says He is Coming in Judgment to Do exactly what that Says.

    I see this as The End of Time and that it could Happen today.

    After The Resurrection of the dead and Judgment, Jesus Would Create The New Heaven and New Earth.

    I believe that is Bible.

    I'm sorry if anyone brings other thoughts to tamper with it.

    ...

    The Bible has the word, 'church' in it a lot and each time it is used, it is for a called-out assembly, whether civil or that of Jesus' Making that He Calls, "My church".

    I'm sorry if anyone brings other thoughts to tamper with it.

    ...

    Jesus' churches are composed of Scripturally Baptised Believers for their membership.

    The Kingdom of God is composed of all The Lord's churches and all the other Saved people alive on Earth, at any given time.

    The Family of God is composed of all The Kingdom of God ( and churches of The Lord Jesus) and all of the Saints that have gone on to Heaven.

    Those are the three usages of The Lord's 'churches', His 'Kingdom', and God's 'Family, as I see them in The Bible.

    ...

    "Where Satan's seat is" speaks of a specific area where a specific religious institution would congregate.

    The synagogue of Satan.

    Some of what you write is accurate, some not, but swayed by some scheme.

    Here is the Scripture concerning the harvesting of the earth.


    14Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand.15And another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, “Put in your sickle, and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe.” 16So he who sat on the cloud swung his sickle across the earth, and the earth was reaped.
    This is that great gathering of the church to the Redeemer that leads to the marriage supper, the physical return and establishment of the millennial reign were the believers rule with Him.

    17Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. 18And another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe.” 19So the angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. 20And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress, as high as a horse’s bridle, for 1,600 stadia.
    This is toward the end of that terrible tribulation time yet to come. It is part of the series of conflicts in the coming world war that culminates with Armageddon and terminates at The Christ returning establishing the millennial reign.

    Of course, your scheme doesn’t fit this, so the scheme obliges great allegory thinking, or reassignment to an already occurrence, or even (as some say) the rejection by considering John was old and dementia was well established.

    “Satan’s seat” is a reference to a specific place, a place copied by Hitler’s architects. Would you like to see it?

    This is a quick reference that gives a picture. From ancient Pergamon to modern Berlin – Christian Friends of Israel-USA


    What to see something shockingly similar? Obama’s Throne of Satan (Pergamon Altar)

    I read the Matthew 13 verse you quoted.

    Where did you come up with all this other stuff?

    Are these schemes from some 'lost books of the bible', or something?

    ...

    Must be, because the Revelation 14 and Matthew 13 Passages both describe The One and Only Second Coming of Jesus, just like all the other descriptions of The One and Only Second Coming of Jesus.

    Then, all those other schemes from lost books aren't needed.

    Sorry to disappoint, but NEITHER point to the one and only second coming.

    There is no coming even alluded to in those passages.
