John Criticizes the Pharisees and Sadducees

But when he saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit worthy of repentance. Do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our ancestor’; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham. Even now the ax is lying at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

“I baptize you with water for repentance, but one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire” (vv. 7-12).

    Very interesting. Would have also been interesting however if you could have included more on Herod and other Edomites like him. Herod was an Edomite (Idumean) and not a Jew, but was known as king of the Jews and appointed by the Romans as a puppet king (not of the line of King David). He was a mass murder – even of his own family members and appointed other Edomite convert Jews (impostors) into the priesthood of the Pharisees.

    The Edomites were a branch of the Canaanites who were the enemies of Israel and at war with them for hundreds of years before Christ. The Maccabee Jews made a grave mistake by converting them to be Jews. They were the leaven (impurity) of the Pharisees, maybe less so amongst the Sadducees who were also corrupt to an extent. The Edomite Jews actually crucified Christ and Christ said they WERE, AND were NOT of Abraham — which was true. They were Canaanites, but were also of Abraham, like the Israelites, except through Esau (Edom) and not Jacob (Israel) like the Israelites. They actually crucified Christ (the chief priests – Sadducee Edomites) after Roman Pilate washed his hands of the matter. The Edomites that Herod helped to power were amongst the Sadducees and the Pharisees, although the Sadducees were closer to the truth in many ways, but not all ways.

    After they killed Christ their divine judgement that Christ warned them of came – the Roman massacres – but not before the Zealots (Pharisee Edomite Jews who were the most “zealous”) and Edomites (masses) joined forces in massacring the Sadducees and masses of common, average true Jews in Jerusalem (not that Edomites didn’t form part of the Sadducees). After killing Christ the Edomite Jews wanted to kill every true Jews who was not an Edomite Jew.

    One thousand years later the Khazars (Mongolian hordes leftovers + Eastern European mix) were converted to Talmudic (non-Moses) Judaism by these Edomite Jewish Rabbi’s AND THE MODERN JEWS ARE THEIR DESCENDANTS TODAY.
