Is Mike Fryer Teaching Heresy Through The Hidden Treasure Course?
In part seven of the Hidden Treasure course on youtube titled ‘Israel And The End Times’ Mike Fryer makes the following claim.
A new covenant for the house of Israel and that is what is going to happen. God is going to bring about a new covenant with the house of Israel and he’s going to put the laws that he gave them long ago in their hearts and that is the new covenant.
He quotes Hebrews Ch 8 Vs 8-10 for that claim but he conceals from his listener that the chapter and verse he uses is actually a quotation from Jeremiah 31 Vs 31-33
The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“when I will make a new covenant
with the people of Israel
and with the people of Judah.
32 It will not be like the covenant
I made with their ancestors
when I took them by the hand
to lead them out of Egypt,
because they broke my covenant,
though I was a husband to[d] them,[e]”
declares the Lord.
33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of
after that time,” declares the Lord.
“I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
That event took place through Jesus and the spilling of his blood on the cross and it was a once for all time event. The new covenant has been made…there is no other.
Mike then goes on to tell his listeners,
There will be a punishment if the nations refuse to go to Jerusalem and celebrate the feast of Tabernacles
How can this be?. How could everyone possibly go to Jerusalem to celebrate this feast? What about the poor who can’t afford to go to Jerusalem…Will God punish them for being poor?. Let’s look to Jesus for the answer. In John Ch 4 he is talking with a Samaritan women and he proclaims in Vs 21-24.
Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.
So there we have it true worshippers don’t need to go anywhere to worship the Lord our God. So why is Mike Fryer teaching this nonsense?
I’m pretty sure there is more heresy in the other 6 videos of the Hidden Treasure course and i was going to watch them. So i clicked on part one ‘The Land of Israel’ and to my amazement and disgust i found that Mike Fryer was recommending Alan Dershowitz’ book ‘the case for Israel’ as a study book. For those of you who dont know the Dershowitz book relies heavily on another now debunked book called ‘From Time Immemorial’ by Joan Peters. This book has been proven to be a fraud by scholars and it is a book that Dershowitz ‘borrows’ heavily from. Here’s an abridged video of a debate between Dershowitz and Norman Finkelstein in which Finklestein shows up Dershowitz and his book.
Why would a Christian recommend this man or his book to fellow Christians?
And here’s a video of Noam Chomsky discussing Finklestein and Dershowitz in which he expains Dershowitz’ M.O whenever he gets caught out.
Next week Fathers House Sabbath Congregation in North Wales will welcome and host a family from Kfar Aza near Sderot in Southern Israel. This family are representatives of a community of Jews who have lived in this area since the creation of the state of Israel in 1948.
Jews from all over Europe made their future in areas of Israel which prior to the Holocaust no one at all, even Arabs wanted to live. These Jewish refugees who had suffered from the horrors and atrocities of anti-Semitism in Europe during the 1930’s and 40’s built communities in the hope of living in Israel in safety and peace. Those who moved to the Negev region worked hard to establish Industries which not only supported the Jewish community but also the Arab community based in Gaza.
Actually there were Arabs living in the area until they were ethnically cleansed by the Zionists. In this case the ethnically cleansed village was called Najd and the arabs living there owned the land where Sderot now stands.
derot was settled by Jews in 1951. According to Walid Khalidi in All That Remains, it along with the settlement of Or ha-Ner, founded in 1957, were established on the village lands of Najd, which means “elevated plain” in Arabic.*
Najd’s Palestinian villagers, approximately 620 in 1945, were expelled on 13 May 1948, before Israel was declared a state and before any Arab armies entered Palestine. According to UN Resolution 194 and also the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 13, Section 2, the villagers of Najd have a right to return home to their personal property and to their native village.
Today, according to Khalidi, “some old trees grow” on the site of the village. It is “overgrown with cactuses and Christ’s thorn and sycamore trees and contans the crumbled walls of unidentified buildings….”
There were 82 houses in Najd. Children went to school in Simsim, two kilometers away. According to Palestine Remembered the village has been completely “defaced.”
In 1596 Najd’s population was 215.
In 1838, Edward Robinson, an American biblical scholar “observed the villagers winnowing barley by throwing it into the air against the wind with wooden forks” [Robinson (1841) III: 260 as quoted in Khalidi 128].
Najd’s villagers were mainly farmers and engaged in animal husbandry. “Fields of grain and fruit trees surrounded Najd on all sides.”
Najd is fourteen kilometers from Gaza. Palestinian Arabs own 12,669 dunums in Najd although Israel refuses to honor their rights to their personal property, and refuses them their inalienable right to return home. In 1945 Jews owned 495 dunums of land in Najd and public lands consisted of 412 dunums.
Najd is one of 418 ethnically cleansed villages by Zionist Jews that Dr. Khalidi includes in his seminal work. Khalidi dedicates his book:
Why would a ‘Christian’ tell such an obvious and easily checked lie? Btw there was other villages in that area where Fryer claims “Arabs didn’t want to live” and probably one of the more well known was a village called ‘Huj’ which if you do your own research on you will find this was, even by Zionist standards, one of the most despicable cases of Ethnic Cleansing’
Chris Proudlove:If He Didn’t Exist You Could Never Make Him Up.
CHILLING comments have been expressed by European Coalition for Israel founder Tomas Sandell following the outcome of last month’s European Union elections.
Among these ‘Chilling comments’ was this.
“Behind the new far right parties, one can find a mix of anti-immigration , anti-EU and anti-austerity agendas”
Strange that he should use the term ‘Chilling’ when in fact the CfZ website openly supported a right wing party in the Uk called Ukip
There are so many Politicians who are opposed to Israel but despite this t the two main Political parties Conservative and Labour both have Israel supporting members who have formed themselves into official groups. Although David Cameron was the first Prime minister for many years who stood down as Patron for the Jewish National Fund.
I have just learned that UKIP also have an Israel supporting group called friends of Israel in UKIP. That is not surprising to me however as the UKIP candidate for my own local council elections four years ago sent me an e-mail showing support for Israel. To learn more about this orgonisation and about what is going on in the Political Arena go to…”
In that blog Chris made the following comment,
I was at a Prayer for Israel group yesterday when I learned that four dozen or so Conservative MPs had a meeting with Foreign Secretary William Hague to press for better UK support of Israel. Apparantly, Hague gave them short shrift and lost his temper with them. I am a floating voter and voted Tory for the first time in many years on the strength of David Cameron saying he was a Zionist. I feel badly let down. I should have stuck with UKIP. We must all try to get our MPs and the media to see what is really happening regarding Israel and the Arabs.
When i asked Chris about this he told me,
I want Britain to be a sovereign nation not part of a federated Europe. Their are many traditional Labour voters who hold to this view. Remember Peter Shore?
The European Union is going beyond the free trade area. I don’t want our country to be part of a political union. We should speak for ourselves.
So ‘Chillingly’ Chris is ‘Anti Eu’ How nice of him to admit this….
