Deceptions in Belief:
All Mortals are Guilty in Deceptions – It's Mortal Human in Nature:

In all perceptions of what is human and inexplicably common in mankind, deceptions of what is truth and what is misleading is innate to our common fallibilities, no matter which religious or irreligious sensibilities one may desire to follow. Question: what proves truth?
The answer lays not in the ability of any one individual to make that discernment, especially when, such as in this case where lying is asserted, but within the belief system that it comes from, lying is advocated if it advances the cause: where is truth in that?
Advancing a religious cause is suspect if it does not promote truth; and in the case of prophetic issues, only in the 100% fulfilment of any prophetic proclamation is the truth to be found. If any aspect of a religious promotion has questionable credentials, it cannot be trusted, can it?
In this forum of the Middle East, questions abound regarding the primacy, or supremacy, of the religious convictions of the main three contenders of religious convocations as it relates to the centrality of whose religious claim to Jerusalem is based upon truth and whose is false.
The oldest claim, made to the patriarch Abraham, is an Hebraic one of Chaldean roots, as Abram was called away from his family connections and sent out to seek the Eternal Sovereign that made the promise to the patriarch that eventually was renamed for his faith. Is this truth?
Here is truth: after thousands of years, just like the Hebraic prophecies assert, Israel remains and the Eternal Sovereign of Israel has declared Zion His throne for eternity.
This ancient claim continues, through descendancy of Isaac and Jacob, taking the name applied to Abraham's grandson, Israel; this is the name that is contested today; it is not valid? Looking at the situation in the Middle East today, that would be the minimum claim. Is it not the truth?
A dynastic kingdom proceeded forth from this; Kings David and Solomon begin to shape the future prophetic model of governance in the world; but empires and conquests interfered, not only from outside the Davidic dynasty, but from internal problems of disobedience; true?
During the problematic reigns of successive Judean and Israeli monarchs, the issues of disobedient populations of the Jewish peoples and the interventions of chastisement by the Gentiles for idolatrous wavering in disbelief became the basis of prophetic calls for a return to faith.
The Jewish prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, Hosea, Micah, et all, through Zephaniah and Zechariah all call for the return of Jerusalem, known also as Zion, to Israel: is this not truth? Do we not see in this occurring in this day and age, challenges to Israel's sovereignty in their own lands: why?
In this day of changing perceptions of an apostate 'Christianesque' religious environment that came out of an earlier dark ages era that could not discern an anti-Semitic attitude of how to deal with a Jewish Savior, attempted to appropriate Jerusalem without recognizing Israel in the future.
Going back in history, once the gnostic influences of the first century communion became the rule of the age, in less than a few hundred years, other prophetic influences made headway in the religious battles to hold empires hostage in the delusion that he who rules in Jerusalem, rules.
This the basis of the crusades; a fight for power that remains today. Theology changed the Gospel from witnessing the message of the coming return of Christ to His kingdom on earth to one of the 'Church' being the kingdom on earth; a blatant lie since it did not/does not tell the truth about Israel's destiny in that age; or in the future.
What is being seen today is that the true prophesies are being fulfilled; the true Savior, the Holy One of Israel, will return once the preparations of eliminating the false prophecies are dispensed in justice and the final replacement of replacement theologies is completed. The true Savior arrives to reign.
How does anyone get to know this? Here is the gut check: the Holy One of Israel, in His first appearance in Jerusalem, said so; and says so now. Who, except those in disbelief, dares to call Him a liar?
