The Time Line of The Children of Israel Part II:
From The Fall of Bible Christianity in 70 AD to The Rise of The Mithra Christianity 321 AD
THE WORSHIPERS OF MITHRAS OBSERVED THE FOLLOWING
DECEMBER 25TH-MITHRAS BIRTHDAY
SUNDAY SERVICE WORSHIP- DECREED THE DAY OF WORSHIP BY EMPEROR CONSTANTINE 325 AD
BUT JESUS SAID THIS BEFORE THE SEIGE OF 70 AD
Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
FROM THIS POINT IN TIME THE FOLLOWERS OF TRUE CHRISTIAN JEWS (The Apostles Peter,Paul,James, John) HAVE BEEN PERSECUTED,AND THEIR NEW TESTEMENT FAITH PERVERTED INTO JUDAISM BY THE HEATHENS THAT WERE DECLARED CHRISTIAN BY A MITHRAIZED ROME (Timeline from 70 AD - 321 AD)
70 AD: The Roman Army destroyed Jerusalem, KILLED OVER 1 MILLION JEWS, TOOK ABOUT 100,000 INTO SLAVERY AND CAPTIVITY, and scattered many from Palestine to other locations in the Roman Empire.
Comment: The Prophecy by Jesus of the Destruction of Jerusalem
Luke 21:20-24 fulfilled
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 thereinto. 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.
135 AD: Further Roman persecution of the Christian Jews intensfied. They were forbidden, upon pain of death, from practicing circumcision, reading the Holy scriptures, eating unleavened bread at Passover, etc.- 1 Corinthanians 5:7-8
[Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.]
Jerusalem: A temple dedicated to the Roman pagan god Jupiter was erected on temple mountain in Jerusalem. A temple of Venus was built on Golgotha, just outside the city.
140 -144 AD: Marcion - Marcionism
(The seed of the Modern day Christian's additude towards the Old Testement )
Marcionism was an early Christian dualist belief system that originated in the teachings of Marcion of Sinope at Rome around the year 144.
Marcion believed Jesus Christ was the savior sent by God, and Paul of Tarsus was his chief apostle, but he rejected the Hebrew Bible and the God of Israel.
Marcion's thus formulated his own canon which consisted of eleven books: A gospel consisting of ten sections from the Gospel of Luke edited by Marcion; and ten of Paul's epistles. All other epistles and gospels of the 27 book New Testament canon were rejected (The Hebrew Bible)
NOW HOW COULD MARCION HAVE JESUS YET REJECT THE OLD TESTAMENT THAT JESUS OPENED THE UNDERSTANDING OF HIS APOSTLES TO
and he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,-Luke 24:44-45
AND HOW COULD MARCION HAVE ACTUALLY BELIEVED THE TEACHINGS OF PAUL, WHEN THIS IS WHAT PAUL SAID THAT HE WAS A WITNESS OF
Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: Acts 26:22
HE DIDN'T BELIEVE!
HE WAS JUST LIKE ANOTHER CHILD OF THE DEVIL THAT ROSE UP TO PERVERT THE RIGHT WAYS OF THE LORD THAT PAUL SPOKE OF
And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? Acts 13:10
Circa 115 -117: The Kitos War (aka Quietus Wars)
NOTE: The after shock of the seige of Jerusalem in 70 AD reverberated throughout the community of the Chistian Jews that lived outside of Jerusalem resulting in what became known as the Kitos War
Jews in Cyprus, Cyrene, Egypt and parts of Mesopotamia revolted against the Roman Empire in what is known as the Kitos War. This caused the death of several hundreds of thousands of Romans and Jews. The Roman Legions eventually crushed the rebellions. (source Wilkapedia.com)
The Prophet Daniel Foretold the days of the destruction of Jerusalem that would follow after Jesus death and resurrection for our sins. Daniels 9:26-27
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Historical Note Reminder:
Jerusalem was not the only place where Christian Jews lived before the seige of Jerusalem; about 3,000 Jews from outside of Jerusalem were baptized on the Day of Pentecost
according to Acts 2:5-11,41
And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
Then to verse 41
Then they that gladly recieved the word were baptized AND THAT SAME DAY THERE WERE ADDED UNTO THEM ABOUT THREE THOUSAND SOULS
200 AD: Roman Emperor Severus forbade religious conversions to the Christianity
of the Isralites
( Peter, Paul, James, Jude, John significant Israelite Authors of the New Testement which were Jews)
Historical Fact about the feigned word "JUDAISM"
Word Origin & History of the term "Judaism " This was not a word in use until 1494
1494 (attested in Anglo-L. from 1251), from L.L. Judaismus (Tertullian), from Gk. Ioudaismos, fromIoudaios "Jew" (see Jew).
The Anglo-L. reference is to a special tax levied on the Jews of England.(source dictionary.com)
The word Judaism originated as a financial term first.
Persecution of Christian Jews by Mithraized Christians.
"The evidence points to these motifs and elements being adopted into Today’s Christianity..."Thus, the following list represents not a solidified mythos or narrative of one particular Mithra or form of the god as developed in one particular culture and era but, rather, a combination of them all for ease of reference as to any possible influences upon Christianity under the hidden name of Mitra/Mithra/Mithras.- 2 Cor 11:4
For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
AND APOSTLE PAUL WARNED ABOUT THESE MINISTERS
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Mithras had the following doctrine which were observed by his cult in Rome but are now called the common practices of Christianity today:
Mithra was born on December 25th of the virgin Anahita. (Today's Jesus)
The babe was wrapped in swaddling clothes, placed in a manger and attended by shepherds.
He was considered a great traveling teacher and master.
He had 12 companions or "disciples."
He performed miracles.
As the "great bull of the Sun," Mithra sacrificed himself for world peace.
He ascended to heaven.(And he makes his followers believe they too will goto heaven)
Mithra was viewed as the Good Shepherd, the "Way, the Truth and the Light," the Redeemer, the Savior, the Messiah.
Mithra is omniscient, as he "hears all, sees all, knows all: none can deceive him."
He was identified with both the Lion and the Lamb.
His sacred day was Sunday, "the Lord's Day," hundreds of years before the appearance of Christ.
His religion had a eucharist or "Lord's Supper."
Mithra "sets his marks on the foreheads of his soldiers."
Mithraism emphasized baptism.

306 AD- 337 AD: The Rise of Mithras Worship -Today's Christianity
Constantine the Great was a Roman emperor who reigned from A.D. 306 to 337.
Tradition has it that on his way to an important battle in A.D. 312, a vision of a flaming cross appeared to him with the inscription, "In this sign conquer." He therefore authorized his mostly pagan soldiers to place a cross on their shields, and went on to win the battle. Believing the Christian God to be his secret to military success and the key to uniting his empire,
Constantine so called adopted Christianity as the official religion of Rome in A.D. 324. His life continued to be marred by bloodshed and political intrigue until his death, but through his influence the bishops of Rome gained rapid ascendancy to political and temporal power.
Sun WorshipThe real secret of Constantine and the bishops of Rome is their cunning introduction of sun worship and paganism into Christianity. It was done so shrewdly that, incredibly, it has been veiled within the faith for centuries. Through Constantine, paganism and Christianity joined hands in the Roman Empire.
321 AD: History readily records that Constantine was a sun-worshiper.
In one decree he declared, "On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed" (March 7, 321). He made this decree in honor of the sun after his supposed conversion to Christianity! Constantine, even after his "false conversion," he remained a pagan until he was baptized 16 YEARS LATER in A.D. 337 on this deathbed, he did much to further the growth of the Paganized Christian Church.
Constantine sought to BLEND HIS KINGDOM OF PAGANS into Christian worshipers, in order to promote stability and ensure that his mithraized empire lasted. The easiest way to bring harmony would be to blend sun worship and Christianity. History shows that the Church of Rome did not object; indeed, it had been engaging in the practice for nearly two centuries!
"Regardless of attempts to make Mithraism the plagiarist of Christianity the fact remains that Mithraism was first,
"Nevertheless, the god Mithra was revered for centuries prior to the Christian era, and the germane elements of Mithraism are known to have preceded Christianity by hundreds to thousands of years. Thus, regardless of attempts to make Mithraism the plagiarist of Christianity, the fact will remain that Mithraism was first, well established in the West decades before Christianity had any significant influence.

NOW WE CAN CLEALY UNDERSTAND WHY CHRIST JESUS SAID THIS
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. -Matthew 7:21-23
Israelite history outside of Jerusalem from 586 BC to 325 AD
The first substantial Israelite settlements developed in 586 BC when Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem. The community grew as an outpost of Palestine, maintaining close ties with the Jewish homeland even as North Africa rose in rebellion against Roman Emperors Trajan and Hadrian. While they were not rebelling, the Jews lived in relative tranquillity, allowed to maintain their status as a distinct nation throughout the Pax Romana. However, after Constantine made Paganized Christianity the law of the land in the 4th century A.D. the Romans started making laws against the Jews.
Byzantine Emperor Justinian solidified these laws, and held Jews in contempt until the Muslims conquered the land in the 7th century.
