Matthew 23:13 But woe unto you, lawyers and (Pharisees – Farsis – Persian converts to Judaism, who were the) politicians, hypocrites! for ye shut up the Kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in [yourselves], neither allow ye them that are entering to go in (see Enoch 93:4-104:6).
Some had intermarried with the true-blood Kingdom of Judah who were captive in Babylon and returned with them to Jerusalem in 457BC when they were freed to go and rebuild the temple.
Those returning remnant found Idumean/ Edomite (Esau) converts to Judaism who became “Jews” when they heard of Judah’s imminent return.
Ester 8:17 And in every province, and in every city, wheresoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.
Revelation 2:9 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] (Idumeans) the synagogue of Satan.
3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are NOT, but do LIE (Idumeans); behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
In this article the Iranian President Wishes All Jews a Happy New Year, (which refers to his tweet of 13 September 2015 #RoshHashanah pic.twitter.com/UheJPrjuVx) and says “May our shared Abrahamic roots deepen respect & bring peace & mutual understanding. L’Shanah Tovah.”, which is an admission on his part that he knows of the ancient blood connection between Iranians and today’s Pharisees/counterfeit Jews, but it’s interesting that he also believes, or scams, the lie that his roots are also Abrahamic, when neither of their’s are, at all.
