Thessalonica was the capital of Macedonia and had a council of a half-dozen officials called ‘politarchs’ governing it. It had a major harbor - an admiralty jurisdiction run by ‘politarchs’ being the commercial center, trading in souls.
Our modern political world is fashioned after this idolatrous system: ‘politarchs’, 'admiralty jurisdiction' and the trading in mens souls through a commercial contracts system. Now is the time that the Ruach (Spirit) is leading our people, Israel out of this type of captivity just as the mob falls further into its trap. ACTS is truly a book for our times.
Act 17:1 And traveling through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. Act 17:2 And according to Paul’s custom, he went in to them and reasoned with them out of the Scriptures on three sabbaths, Act 17:3 opening and setting forth that Moshiach must have suffered, and to have risen again from the dead; and that this Yahusha whom I preach to you is Moshiach.
Thessalonica was the capital of Macedonia and a council of a half dozen officials called ‘politarchs’ governing it, it had a major harbor (an admiralty jurisdiction run by ‘politarchs’) it was a commercial center to-boot!
Yahusha is the expected Moshiach promised in the Scripture: the ‘râphâ’ – ‘the healer’/-RESH-PEH-ALEPH—Heb #7495 רפא, the fulfillment of the Isaiah 53 passage; “and with his stripes we are healed. H7495 )
As Moshiach he “had to” (edei) become the Suffering ervant and the ‘râphâ’/Jason of Isaiah and the Pslams.
He “had to” rise from the dead.
Act 17:4 And some of them believed and joined themselves to Paul and Silas, both a great multitude of the worshiping Greeks, and not a few of the chief women.
Act 17:5 But the Synagogue of Satan-disobeying Jews becoming jealous, and having taken aside some wicked men of the market-loafers, and gathering a crowd, they set all the city in an uproar.
“Some wicked men of the market-loafers.” saboteurs in the shadow’s, agent provocateurs.
This mob of low-lifes rushed to the main house assembly that had been formed, belonging to the healer/rapha hoping to drag Paul and Silas out to mob justice!
These “market loafers” may well adapt and recast themselves throughout history but they always have the same Lucerferic principality behind them using different human handlers to work their woke:
Lysander and the Spartans
Nero and the Romans
Freemasons engaged in stoking the fires of mass discontent which culminated with the French Revolution or…
Trotsky stoking the fires of mass discontent which culminated with the Bolshevik Revolution…
with Big Tech being the agent provocateurs who purposefully lure the unread
Their ploy worked (v.8) both the crowd and officials were thrown into a turmoil.
8 And hearing these things, they troubled the crowd and the city judge.
‘Râphâ’, the naturopath had to post bond,
How to dismantle a society; taken from the play book of Ancient Greece:
Eradication of the small producers
Extreme personal narcissism
The Pelo-ponn-esian war principle, where a war is organized by the states, in Greece’s case-the states of the Peloponnesian League, led by Sparta, against Athens.
In our modern case a war is organized by the incorporated 50 states and led by the incorporated United States against the Republic of the united States of America and against its 50 union states.
The Act of 1871: The “United States” Is a Corporation – There are Two Constitutions, 100 states – 50 union within a Republic and 50 corporations within the Corporation and its ten square miles.
In 1871, February 21: Congress Passes an Act to Provide a Government for the District of Columbia, also known as the Act of 1871. With no constitutional authority to do so, Congress created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia, a ten mile square parcel of land (see, Acts of the Forty-first Congress,” Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62).
The Act of 1871 formed a corporation called THE UNITED STATES. The corporation, OWNED by foreign interests, moved in and stealthily moved the original Constitution into the repository of bygone days and began the process of bringing about the Kingdom of Tyre Ezek. 28 the trading of mens souls, their labor for credits ultimately to be traded and trafficked in commerce through the filing of the brith bond, SS bond # and trading a state citizen for a 14th Amendment Corporate Citizen – a captured slave status.
All this was brought about in the years after the Civil War.
In Grecian history they used the old rivalry between Sparta and Athens. The hatred between the two, Athens and Sparta made it possible for virtually any reason to cause a war which brought about the fall of Greece.
v.5 And coming on the house of ‘râphâ’ – ‘the naturapath’ they sought to bring them out to the mob.
(Jason) -RESH-PEH-ALEPH—Heb #7495 רפא, (most probably named after the Isaiah 53 passage; “and with his stripes we are healed.” H7495 ).
Just as with Antioch and Iconium (14:19) in Galatia, these Synagogue of Satan, now Grecian Lives Matter mob follow them to Berea, “agitating the crowds and stirring then up” (17:3).
Act 17:6 And not finding them, they drew ‘râphâ’/Jason and certain brothers before the city judges, crying, These who have turned the world upside down have come here too, Act 17:7 whom ‘râphâ’ /Jason has received. And these all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus. Act 17:8 And hearing these things, they troubled the crowd and the city judge. Act 17:9 And taking security from ‘râphâ’ /Jason and from the rest, they let them go.
Act 17:10 And the brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. They, when they arrived, went into the synagogue of the Jews.
Act 17:11 And these were more noble than those of Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind and searched the Scriptures daily to see if those things were so.
Act 17:12 Therefore many of them believed, and quite a few of honorable Greek women and men.
The Berean’s understood Paul could not establish doctrine but renew already established Torah doctrine, renewed and refreshed by Moshiach’s life giving blood and transferred into the higher priesthood.

Ps. 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the law of יהוה; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psa 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Deut 12:28-32 Be careful to hear all these TOROT/words which I command you, so that it may go well with you and with your sons after you forever,

Mal 2:7 seek the Law at his mouth; for he is the messenger of יהוה Tzvout.

Torah of Yahusha:
Jn. 7:19 Did not Moshe give you the TORAH? And yet not one of you keeps the TORAH! Why do you seek to kill Me?
Lk 11:28 [Exo.24:] blessed are they who hear the Word of יהוה and keep it.
Lk 16:17 [Deut 18:17, Jn. 7:16, Jn.12:49] it is easier for the heaven and earth to pass than for one tittle (sode markings within the text) of the TORAH to fail.
Torah of Paul:
2 Pet 3:17 beware lest being led away with the error of the TORAHLESS,
Rom 3:31 [1.Jn. 3:4, Rom 6:14] Do we then make the TORAH void through faith? Let it not be! But we establish the TORAH. (How? Through the transference of the law and priesthood through the death penalty payment and resurrection which brings about justification).
Rom 8:5 so that the righteousness of the Law might be fulfilled in us,
Acts 24:14 But I confess this to you, that after the Way which they call heresy, so I worship the Elohim of my fathers, believing all things that are written in the TORAH and in the NEVIM.
Nail in the coffin to kill false doctrine: Acts 26:19 I stand until this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying no other things than those which the prophets and Moses said.
Act 17:13 But when the Jews from Thessalonica knew that the Word of YAH was preached by Paul at Berea, they came there also and stirred up the people.
Act 17:14 And then immediately the brothers sent Paul away to go towards the sea, but both Silas and Timothy stayed there.
Act 17:15 And those conducting Paul brought him to Athens. And receiving a command to Silas and Timothy to come to him with all speed, they departed.
Paul in Athens
Act 17:16 But awaiting them in Athens, Paul’s spirit was pained within him, seeing the city full of idols.
Act 17:17 Then indeed he addressed the Jews in the synagogue, and those worshiping, and daily in the market, to those happening to be there.
Act 17:18 And certain philosophers from the Epicureans and from the Stoics met him. And some said, What will this babbler say? And others said, He seems to be an announcer of foreign demons (because he preached Jesus and the resurrection to them).
Act 17:19 And taking hold of him, they led him to the Areopagus, saying, Are we able to know what is this new doctrine of which you speak?
Act 17:20 For you bring certain strange things to our ears, therefore we are minded to know what these things mean.
Act 17:21 (For all the Athenians and strangers who were there spent their time in nothing else except to tell or to hear something newer.)
Act 17:22 And standing in the middle of the Areopagus, Paul said, Men, Athenians, I see that you are fearful of gods in everything.
Act 17:23 For as I passed by and saw the things you worship, I also found an altar with this inscription: TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Not knowing then whom you worship, I make Him known to you.
Act 17:24 The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of Heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands,
Act 17:25 nor is served with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives life and breath and all things to all.
Act 17:26 And He has made all nations of men of one blood to dwell on all the face of the earth, ordaining fore-appointed seasons and boundaries of their dwelling,
Act 17:27 to seek the Lord, if perhaps they might feel after Him and find Him, though indeed He is not far from each one of us.
Act 17:28 For in Him we live and move and have our being, as also certain of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring.
Act 17:29 Then being offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like gold or silver or stone, engraved by art and man’s imagination.
Act 17:30 Truly, then, God overlooking the times of ignorance, now He strictly commands all men everywhere to repent,
Act 17:31 because He has appointed a day in which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by a Man whom He appointed, having given proof to all by raising Him from the dead.
Act 17:32 And hearing of a resurrection of the dead, some indeed mocked; and others said, We will hear you again concerning this.
Act 17:33 And so Paul departed from among them.
Act 17:34 But certain men joined themselves to him and believed; among whom were Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
