The Truth About Matthew 5:44: Exposing The Christian Deception of Loving Your Enemies

I recently received an email from a subscriber that asked me for my advice on the topic of loving our enemies. The reader, who is a female, told me that she was basically going through hell on her job every day; being verbally persecuted by the Caucasians (white people) that she works with. She went on to say that this situation has become so mentally frustrating to her because the bible tells us to love our enemies and she didn’t know if she could find it in her heart to love them. And it is this very subject that I will be expounding on today.

I get many different emails from readers on a regular basis but I decided to write an article about this one specifically because it reminded me just how damaging the teachings of Christianity are to our souls. It made me think about all of the false teachings I used to believe in when I was Christian that made me mentally oppressed. In this case, the Christian doctrine of Matthew 5:14 to love our enemies and do good to them that hate us is one of the worst Christian teachings that black people have ever been taught.

This doctrine was originally taught to our ancestors during slavery, to get them to love their slavemasters — the white man — no matter how wrong they did them. And this doctrine is still being taught to us today; except this time it’s being taught to us by our own people — the black pastor. This is one of the reasons why we are still mentally enslaved today, because our own people are teaching us to love and pray for the very same people that hate and continue to oppress us. And that is NOT what Yahusha (Jesus) taught to his disciples in that passage.

So if you ever wondered about Matthew 5:44 and want to know what Yahusha (Jesus) really meant when he made those statements; allow me to break it down for you in this article.

Putting The Book of Matthew in Proper Context

In order to understand what the Messiah meant in Matthew 5:44, we must first understand a few things about the book of Matthew. It’s essential for you to know that the writers of the bible were all Israelites by blood. From Genesis to Revelations, including all of the missing books that the Roman Catholic Church did not include in the bible, all of the writers were Israelites by blood. In other words, the bible was written by Israelites to Israelites.

With that being said, the book of Matthew is no different from the other books of the bible; in that it was written by an Israelite. MatithYahu, who you know today as Matthew, was a bloodline descendent of Jacob and was from the tribe of Levi. He was a tax collector by profession and he lived in Galilee, where the outcasts of Israel resided. All of this information is very important for you to know because it will help you understand why Yahusha (Jesus) chose Matthew to be one of his 12 disciples. Yahusha (Jesus) called Matthew to be his disciple (Matthew 9:9) for the same reason that he called the other 11 disciples — they were all Israelites.

Each of the 12 disciples represented a different tribe of the original 12 tribes of Israel mentioned in Genesis the 49th chapter. The reason for this is because they were the chosen ones to preach the good news of the messiah to the Israelites that were scattered abroad, and cast off as Gentiles by the Most High. Thousands of years before Yahusha (Jesus) was born, the 12 tribes split into 2 separate kingdoms: The Southern Kingdom and the Northern Kingdom. The Southern kingdom represented the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and a portion of Levi; and the Northern Kingdom represented the other 9 tribes. But only the Southern Kingdom remained Yah’s chosen people. Yah divorced the Northern kingdom from being his people because of their wickedness and cast them off as Gentiles.

However, it was prophesied by many of the prophets that Yah would send a redeemer to give the Gentiles one more chance to get back into the covenant with him. For instance, in Isaiah 42:6-7, it states: I YAHUAH have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.” Well this prophesy was fulfilled when the Messiah chose Matthew and his 12 disciples and went to the sea of Galilee to redeem the Israelites living there.

“And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.” – Matthew 4:13-16

Contrary to what Christianity teaches, the gentiles in the so-called New Testament were NOT the other nations; they were the Israelites that were scattered abroad. Yahusha was sent on Earth to be the redeem Israel, not the other nations. He even said this himself in Matthew 15: 24, in which he stated: “I am ONLY sent to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” And Matthew, who was chosen by Yahusha (Jesus) to write the very first testimony of Him, originally named his writing, Ha Besorah Peh Ha Abrym (translation: The Gospel According to the Hebrews). The fact that his testimony was written in the Hebrew language to Hebrews, further lets you know that the book of Matthew is only pertaining to the Israelites.

Love Your Enemies = Love Your Own People No Matter What

Now that we know that the book of Matthew (and the rest of the Gospels) is only about the Israelites; it will be easier for you to understand what the Messiah meant when He told his disciples to love their enemies. But before we delve into that passage, I want to give you a helpful tip when studying the bible: Always read the entire chapter of a book to get the context of what is written in one verse. Many Christian pastors and ministers deceive many people by quoting one verse from the text and then twisting it to mean what they want it to say; rather than reading it in its proper context. And because most religious people are not students of the word, they are easily deceived.

So before we go into Matthew 5:44, let’s get an understanding of what is happening throughout the chapter. In the 5th chapter of Matthew, Yahusha (Jesus) is teaching the disciples and other Israelites who chose to follow Him, who will inherit the kingdom and who will not. In his message, He breaks down to them what type of character traits and behavioral practices one must have to be granted access into the kingdom. The purpose of his teaching was to make them aware that since they were Yah’s chosen representatives on Earth; their character and behavior should resemble the father.

Now let’s skip down towards the end of the chapter. In Matthew 5:43-44, the Messiah states: You have heard that it was said, Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”

It’s important to note that during this time period, the Israelites were following a separate law that the Scribes and Pharisees created. And in their law, it stated that you should hate your enemy, in reference to their own people. Although this went against the commandments of Yah in the Torah; many of the Israelites believed that it was okay to hate their own people if they hated them first. So in the verses above, the Messiah is telling the Israelites to forget about the teachings of the Scribes and Pharisees’ that tell you to hate your own people and follow my teachings (which are the same as the Father’s teachings).

The Messiah’s teachings to the Israelites to ‘love your enemies and to do good to them that hate you and to pray for them that try and kill you, was the same teaching of the Father in Leviticus 19:18, which stated: “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am YAHUAH.” Both teachings were ONLY referring to those that were descendants of Israel. So the Christian doctrine of loving our enemies who hate us — as in our worldwide oppressors — is 100% false and is not biblical at all.

In Conclusion:

The Most High has never ever taught us to love our historical oppressors (Caucasians). In case you are not aware of this, the modern day Europeans are the offspring of the fallen angels spoken about in the book of Enoch and Genesis. They are the children of the Nephilim (Neanderthals) that inter-bred with the children of Japheth, Esau, Canaan, etc. that The Most High commanded the Israelites to kill and destroy when they were about to enter into the Promised Land (Exodus 23:32-33, Deuteronomy 20: 16-18, Joshua 23:12-13). But the Israelites did NOT kill them off as God commanded them to, so the Nephilim race continued to live and eventually became the rulers of the world. They later became known as the Barbarians, Europeans, and Caucasians and these are the same people that are oppressing us today (Judges 2:1-3).

Now that you know who these people are, it should be very clear to you that Matthew 5:44 is NOT telling us to love our oppressors. However, I want you to know that all white people are not evil. Some (a small minority) of them have repented of their sins and their ancestors sins and have been filled with the Ruack Ha Kadesh (The Holy Spirit). Those are the ones that you can have love for (but not marry). As for the rest of them, they are infiltrated by Satan and we should have no love for them at all.

I hope this article has helped you in your understanding of Matthew 5:44 and showed you how damaging the teachings of Christianity can be to your soul. Shalom!

    I am scratching my head at the moment. The point is,I have always felt something funny about the fallen Angels and this agrees with my suspicions,and having grown up in a Christian family,where fear has been instilled in us when it comes to askin God questions,I have jus always died inside burning with so many unanswered quitestions.

    This thing about the fallen angels as white people always boggled me inside kus through junior and high school history studies, I came through alot of evil whites have done mainly to us, Australia almost 90% of us have been wiped-out{so called aboriginals},Newzeland,South America and the US ofcourse…inshort it’s the whole world kus now it’s through Aids which killing many here in southern Africa/sub-Saharan plus other means… (In Africa and up there)… And looking into all this evil,one can only achieve somuch if connected to the devil,kus any normal person would go crazy with so much blood in their hands. Therefore,looking into where the devil had fallen as to the BIBLE in the north plus his followers, where Cain went after the murder of his own brother that’s the northern part of the Earth which is Europe,them,whites fit precisely the notion of the fallen angels and I have no doubt about this whatsoever in my HEART.

    The realisation Of this truth and the fact that the bible is our story,that the Queen Shebas, Davids,etc plus GOD-HIMSELF/JESUZ is black as to Revelation 1/13-15…has given me comfort kus I know that our freedom is around the corner as to prophesy,I am handling this spiritual battle and torture from the 90% of whites with a calm mind. The only important thing is to fully turn back to the Torah and the law which I have ignorantly practised since 1999 thru Seventh Day Adventist which is a Christian church and paganic… I pray for the full restoration of the black Hebrew family, yes back to GOD for I strongly feel that 80% of us are still stuck in paganism/Christianity. I believe it’s only 15/20@% of us who’re enlightened at the moment and prayers are a must.

    The challenge being faced though is how we’re to come together and be in full communion with our creator Yahweh as a unified people. I mostly study the BIBLE at home alone and trying so hard to help my sisters understand the mystery and our tru story and heritage. Honestly,the damage is too much and it ain an easy task,but I won’t give up. I am to fight to the end for this light to shine as well in the lives of those close me and willin whites who want salvation.

    Thanks for the great work you’re doing and I pray that GOD is to give us the financial strength to fully support you. I am still studying at the moment and it’s thru self sponsorship. I am LoVin your work and would love to offer support in all areas.

    Stay blessed and Khotso/Shalom/Peace be upon thee…!!!

    I’m not as much convinced in your explanation, on Jesus teaching about our enemies, since not all believers can attend a theoretical school to acquire such a definition of understanding, but my view and my knowledge that the HolySpirit has given to me, an enemy has no description, be it a brother, a friend, a neighbour or an alien, an enemy is simply an enemy, an enemy is anyone who does things against you what that scripture means cannot be expounded to suit what we may want to believe,in short that teaching tells us we should not stoop in the same level and act the same way as our haters, our godly character must supersede that of our enemies,through the imperative of our godly given Love, because our definite mission is winning them for Christ’s sake.

      Shalom Rev,

      I appreciate you taking the time out to comment on this article. However, your comments did not address anything mentioned in this article. While I fully agree with you that an enemy can be anyone regardless of race or nationally; this article was not about who a general enemy may be. This article was specifically addressing who Yahusha (Jesus) was referencing an enemy to be to his disciples in Matthew 5. And I have provided ample evidence inside this article that Yahusha was telling his disciples to love your enemies among your own people that hate you. Therefore, if you would like to dispute this topic based on all of the evidence provided in this article, I am all ears sir.

      FYI: I did not go to seminary school either; I am led by the Ruach HaQodesh (The Holy Spirit).

      Thanks again for your comments and I look forward to your response. Shalom!

        This is a beautifully written article, and one rich in historical facts. Thank you so much.

        The only thing that I’m confused about is when you stated that some Caucasians have repented for their sins/ancestors sins. I agree, not all Caucasians are not evil. However, them, and other nations, have nothing to repent for as they were not under the law, only Israel was under the law. (Psalm 147:19 and Psalm 78:5) Therefore only israel can repent, not other nations.

        The covenants – both old and new – are contracts only given to Israel. (Heb 8:8) The only strangers who can take hold of that covenant would be Israelite strangers (1 Peter 1:1) . Also, remembering what Isaiah 14 says about Edom and all the other nations, they will need to be punished for what their ancestors did, so them praying and offering repentence is futile. Also, (Heb 12:16-17) says that Esau found no place of repentance with Yah. I think it’s best not to give other nations false hope. The kingdom is only for Israel (Acts 1:6, Daniel 7:18) as Israel are the saints of Yah (Psalm 50:5 and Psalm 148:8) and will take and possess the Kingdom.

        Sure, a remnant of Edom will be reserved – Amos 9:12 – and this will be to serve israel. The other nations don’t get the Kingdom. Yah scattered us Israelites as a punishment (Deut 4:27) It wouldn’t add up that after our punishment ends, He still wants us with those same people he scattered us to as a punishment. Native Gentiles – those with no Hebrew bloodline – will be in the outer court when the Kingdom comes – (Rev 11:1-2) and will have to serve the Israelites (Isaiah 14:1-4) Just like we served them.

        I love this truth, and give thanks that I’ve been awakened! Please keep up the good work – you brothers who are teaching this truth are doing an excellent job.

      Yes, both are the same genetically speaking. However, different groups believe different things.
