The Needle of Jerusalem

Standard

“Then Yahshua said to His disciples, ‘Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of My Father.'” Matthew 19:23-24

“The disciples were amazed at His words. But Yahshua said again, ‘Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of Yahweh! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of My Father.'” Mark 10:24-25

The Sciptures have been corrupted. The reason for this tampering with of the Sacred Books is to misinform us and hide the knowledge of how man became separated from his Creator, through his own free will, by the choices he made and the actions he took as a result of those choices. Instead, we have been availed versions that are incorrect and misleading.

The story of Tobit is especially blasphemous. Man has NO authority to summon, command or give orders to Yahweh, Yahshua, Archangels, Angels or any other Heavenly Beings.

Take, for example, the verses above. In Jerusalem, there was a small gate known as the ‘Needle’. Its purpose was to allow traders and merchants to enter the city in the evening, after the main gates had been shut for security reasons.
It was a side gate — small and narrow — and was not intended for passage by animals, especially camels carrying heavy loads (and the camel has a hump). So it was almost impossible for the act to happen.
A camel would have to be unloaded and kneel to pass through, then be reloaded on the other side.

The verses should read:

“Then Yahshua said to His disciples, ‘Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the Needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of My Father.'” Matthew 19:23-24

“The disciples were amazed at His words. But Yahshua said again, ‘Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of Yahweh! It is easier for a camel to go through the Needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of My Father.'” Mark 10:24-25

Yahshua’s message was that we need to detach ourselves from our material possessions in order to enter heaven. It is fine to be rich, but share your riches with others, and do not be a miser or cling to the material things of this world.

After all, when we die, we leave everything behind.

(Although the message in the verses may not have changed, it is important to learn that our Master used references to actual places and events of that time to illustrate His parables and teachings.)
