9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
dobman: The subject of racism did not even come up in last night's discussion. Just those two verses.
Murray teaches that all those who were Jews (supposed kenites or not) rejected Christ.
Is that correct?
Well in those verses (Rev 2:9 and 3:9) the subject matter is 2 Christian churches which were called synagogues at that time peopled with mainly gentiles who considered themselves spiritual Jews and accepted Jewish customs but claimed were followers of CHRIST.
(according to murray the kenites, so called literal descendants of satan, rejected Christ. So these verses do not pertain to these fictional "Kenites" or any Jews who openly rejected Christ.)
But both churches, synagogues, mentioned were under persecution by the Romans and were going through trials and tribulations. They were being tested. The churches (synagogues) were peopled with some blasphemers, and liars, in that they falsely professed Christ as their Savior, did not follow Christ in their heart.
So how could those spoke about in Rev. 2:9 and 3:9 be the Jews who rejected Christ blatantly, outspokenly (murray's socalled "Kenites, literal spawn of the devil) when in reality those spoke about in Rev. 2:9 and Rev. 3:9 were actually Christians, fallen as they may have been?
You do not even know the context of the scriptures you quote. Your twisted interpretation is not logical or rational. Just an obvious perversion of God's word.
Those verses speak about Christians who were called Jews, "spiritual Jews", at that time since the term Christian did not exist then.
Not ethnic Jews who rejected Christ openly, who murray claims were Kenites. literal spawn of satan.
Your interpretation does NOT fly! Has no wings! Crashes and burns!
Go back and study without murray and get it right!
