James W Knox: A Talmudic Jew
Although James Knox claims to be a Christian, he's a Talmudic Jew whose hope is NOT in Jesus Christ, but in the Jewish Antichrist and his world government. Knox's purpose is to prepare his "left behind" church members to obey the coming Noahide Laws (the laws of the world government), to worship the Antichrist, and to take his Mark. Knox will accomplish this subterfuge through King James Onlyism, which is a front for Jewish Kabbalism (Witchcraft).
"A Jew may pretend he is a Christian to deceive Christians." (The Talmud)
"I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan [see Merovingian Jews]." (Rev 2:9)
I will make them of the
synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie [they are not the Tribe of Judah, but the Tribe of Dan];
behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to
know that I have loved thee." (Rev 3:9)
James W Knox: A Crypto-Jew*
Knox is the pastor of Bible Baptist Church in Deland, FL. He's not a
Christian, but a Crypto-Jew whose teachings are more
characteristic of a Jewish Rabbi than of a Christian minister. He's a
strong proponent of King James Onlyism and is promoted by Gail Riplinger, another Crypto-Jew.
Crypto Jew is a Jew who converts to another religion and outwardly
embraces the new religion to deceive while secretly maintaining Jewish beliefs and practices (Kabbalism). James Knox is overtly a Christian while covertly a Jew.
James Knox's Jewish Pedigree
James Knox's family member's Jewish names are listed below.
Knox is an Ashkenazi Jewish name (L). James Knox's parents are Maitland Brooks Knox and Vera Stevens Knox. Maitland is a Jewish name (see below). Brooks is a Jewish name (L). Vera is a Russian Jewish name (L). Stevens is a Jewish name (L). James Knox's grandmother is Leona Stevens. Leona is a Jewish name (L). James Knox's wife is Lilian Mendes and her mother is Esther Mendes. Lilian is a Jewish name (L). Esther is a Jewish name (L). Mendes is a Sephardic Jewish name (L). James Knox's son and daughter are Israel Wilson and Tabitha Shiloh. Israel is a Jewish name. Tabitha is a Jewish name. Shiloh is a Jewish name. In addition to himself, James Knox's mother, father, son, daughter, grandmother, grandfather, wife, mother-in-law, and dog* all have Jewish names. *Knox once mentioned in a sermon that his dog is named Levi.
John Knox, the reformer, was a Jew.
The Maitland's are Jews
"From the early 14th century the Maitlands were allied in marriage to a number of impressive noble families..." (L). "The name Maitland...translates as evil genius." (L).
Arthur Balfour, formerly the Prime Minister of England, was Jewish and the standard-bearer for Zionism. He issued the Balfour Declaration in 1917 which announced support for the establishment of the State of Israel in Palestine. Arthur Balfour's father was James Maitland Balfour; his brother was Francis Maitland Balfour, and his Great Grandfather was James Maitland, the 8th Earl of Lauderdale. James Maitland, the 7th Earl of Lauderdale, is pictured below.
Note: In Knox's book, From Where I Stand (2013), in the footnote on page 154, Knox states that he was once offered a job writing radio programs for Charles Halff, a Jewish man, and for "The Christian Jew Hour." Knox wouldn't have been offered this job if he wasn't Jewish.
Note: In James Knox's book, From Where I Stand (2007), on page 126, there is a picture of his son, Israel, wearing a black brimmed hat, with the statement, "Israel, who always wore a brimmed hat to church." Although wearing a brimmed hat to synagogue is ordinary for an Orthodox Jew, it is an odd practice for a Christian boy.
James Knox: A Talmudic Jew and Pharisee
4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
James Knox's Pharisaism (Law-Keeping) is preparing his church members for the Noahide Laws
Pharisaism at the time of Jesus Christ is today known as Talmudic Judaism. James Knox is a Talmudic Jew and Pharisee who preaches law-keeping and not grace. He preaches obedience to the biblical commands in Leviticus, but neglects to teach that righteousness comes by faith in Jesus Christ alone. He teaches that his congregation must tithe (give 1/10 of their earnings to his church), though they aren't living in ancient Israel and have never been under the law. He teaches that they must not smoke or drink even one beer, though Jesus Christ drank wine and was sinless. He preaches that they can't watch movies and that women can't wear shorts. Knox and his church members are Pharisees. All who follow James Knox's law-based, works-based, pharisaical "gospel" have rejected the only grace of God by which they can be saved. They will perish in Hellfire.
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. (Gal 5:4)
But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. (Gal 5:18)
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. (James 2:10)
that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith
of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be
justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for
by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. (Gal 2:16)
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. (Romans 3:28)
"For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. (Titus 1:10-11)
Contrary to James Knox's Prosperity Preaching, his father, Maitland Brooks Knox, was a Wealthy and Influential International Banker
On Sunday 3/20/22, James Knox preached the morning and evening sermons at his church. They were titled 2 Corinthians Lesson 18 and 19. In both of these sermons Knox strongly appealed to his congregation for money while citing his parents as models for Christian giving. One point he belabored was that in spite of his parents' poverty, they always tithed and therefore God blessed them. For example, in Lesson 18 at 1:05:07, Knox praised his mother's supposed charitable giving in spite of her poverty:
"She's been living on $18,000 a year since dad died. And she gives $6,000 to the church every year. I don't know many people who would be content to live on $1,500 a month and I don't know anybody who gives 1/3 of their income to Jesus Christ. You know why I didn't know that? Nobody but my son knew."
At 1:07:50, and while feigning to cry, Knox preached, "My mother sent [money] from the time she was a toddler till the time she went to Heaven...gave from her heart to the church. 'That lady traveled the world and lived like a queen because God blessed her. You wouldn't think a person that had the income she had [near poverty level] could go to the places she went and do the things she did.'"
Maitland Brooks Knox's Obituary Exposes James Knox's Fraud*
Knox would have his congregation believe that his mother "traveled the world and lived like a queen" on a meager income because God blessed her tithe. How was Wanda Knox really able to live her "royal" lifestyle? Wanda Knox's husband and James Knox's father was Maitland Brooks Knox. The following excerpt is from his obituary.
"Maitland Brooks Knox, 78, of Village Green Road, died Jan. 22, 2005, at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach. Mr. Knox retired in 1983 as president of First National Bank of New Smyrna Beach. Born in Alexandria, La., he moved to DeLand from New Smyrna Beach in 1996...Mr. Knox worked his way through Stonier Graduate School at Rutgers University, earning a degree in banking and finance. He taught banking at several schools, frequently lectured for the American Bankers Association, and gave expert-witness testimony before the U.S. Congress...He enjoyed traveling, and he visited all 50 states and numerous foreign countries."
Maitland Brooks Knox's obituary reveals the real reason why his wife, Wanda Knox, "traveled the world and lived like a queen." Her husband was a wealthy and influential bank president who traveled to "all 50 states and numerous foreign countries."
Maitland Brooks Knox taught banking, represented the powerful American Bankers Association, and gave expert testimony before U.S. Congress. His extensive foreign travels along with being a First National Bank president positioned his involvement in international banking.
Maitland Brooks Knox represented the American Bankers Association
James Knox's father, Maitland Brooks Knox, represented the American Bankers Association.
"ABA members include banks of all sizes and charters, and between them they represent over 95 percent of the industry's $13.5 trillion in assets, and employ over 2 million men and women." (L).
James Knox's Mother Contradicts him: "He [Maitland Brooks Knox] was very successful."
In a recent interview, Wanda Knox-My Testimony, Wanda Knox, said of her husband, "He was one of the youngest bank presidents in Florida. He was very successful. He worked for National Bank and they even sent him overseas on trade missions for the government." Wanda Knox added that at one time her husband was the president of two banks in Florida and at 16 min. she said that her favorite country to travel to was Israel.
Considering these impressive credentials, it's fair to venture that Maitland Brooks Knox was not only a very successful international banker, but was an influencer and insider in the banking world.
Given that James Knox's father's wealth enabled his mother to "travel the world and live like a queen;" how can Knox maintain the deception that his parents were poor?
*Fraud is a term used to describe deception perpetrated in order to achieve some kind of goal or benefit. James Knox perpetrated this deception in order to achieve financial gain.
James Knox: The Confidence Man
James Knox's Shameless Lies: The High School Achievements of which he Boasted are False!
On 6/12/22, James Knox gave a sermon called "A Challenge to Young Adults" (above). Knox spent the entire sermon boasting of his high school achievements. If that's not bad enough, the accomplishments for which he boasted are false.
For instance, Knox boasted at 10:55 that he lettered in 4 sports in high school. While showing his congregation his high school sports letter "S", Knox said, "This is my football letter, and my basketball letter, and my track and field letter, and my golf letter..."
At 14:48 Knox boasted, "I was voted President of the Student Body," however, he held no such elected office.
James Knox attended New Smyrna Beach High School. The New Smyrna Beach High School yearbook is available online and like any yearbook, the grads' pictures are displayed along with their school accomplishments. James Knox's picture is below.
The High School Sports Achievements of which Knox boasted are not Listed in his Yearbook
Listed below Knox's grad picture and name is Co-Pres S.G.A. (S.G.A. is the Student Government Association for which a student applies. An SGA application can be seen here.), Span Club, Interact (a Rotary Club), and I.C.C. (Inter-Club Council). No sports are listed. Though Knox boasted that he lettered in varsity football, basketball, and track, these sports are listed for the other grads, but not for Knox. For example, notice Greg Martin's graduation picture (below), who did participate in football, basketball, and track.
Despite James Knox's Boast of "Breaking Several Basketball Scoring Records," he was NOT on the Basketball Team
Perhaps Knox's varsity football, basketball, and track accomplishments were mistakenly omitted from his graduation picture. Afterall, not only did Knox boast that he lettered in basketball, but at 13:10, he preached of the many basketball scoring records he held: "I broke several school scoring records in basketball and my picture was in the newspaper. What a big deal! I walked around town thinking they were going to ask me for my autograph." Since Knox wasn't on the basketball team (see below), how did he hold any basketball scoring records? Why would his picture be in the newspaper and why would anyone have asked him for his autograph? As seen from his grad picture (above) and from the team picture (below), Greg Martin was on the basketball team.
Despite James Knox's Boast of Lettering in Varsity Football, he was NOT on the Football Team
James Knox also bragged of lettering in varsity football, but just like basketball, Knox isn't seen or listed on the team picture (below). As seen from his grad picture (above) and from the team picture, Greg Martin was on the football team.
James Knox Bragged that he Lettered in Track, however, he was Not on the Track Team
Knox boasted that he was on the high school track team and at 11:33, he said, "I was fast; I ran like the wind." As seen in the team photo (below), Greg Martin was on the track team as this achievement was listed under his graduation picture. James Knox is not listed or pictured as being on the track team.
James Knox was a Member of "Interact," a Rotary International Service Club, a Masonic Organization
Listed under James Knox's high school graduation picture is "Interact." In high school Knox was a member of an Interact Club.
A Rotary International website states, "Interact is Rotary International's service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance..."
A Masonic Website states that Rotary is Freemasonry:
"...a symbiosis between the Rotary, Lions and Freemasonry existed in Italy. Suffice it to say that it was none other than Giordano Gamberini, a former Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy-who declared-on page 5 of the February 1981 issue of the Masonic periodical Hiram, that the two service Societies were Masonic Societies.
"The most infamous Masonic lodge in
Europe is called P2...P2 officially was established in 1966 by Giordano Gamberini, grand master of the Grande Oriente d'ltalia... (L).
"The Rotarian Lodge N. 415 whose 29 founders were also members of a Rotary Club in London, received the patent in 1920 from the United Grand Lodge of England." The United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) is the mother of all Masonic Lodges which founded the U.S. in 1776. (L)
"Rotary is a Masonic Jewish organization of business and professional leaders that claims to provide humanitarian service...and building goodwill and peace in the world." (L)
Note: The logo for Rotary International is also a 6-pointed star or a hexagram.
James Knox is a Pathological Liar and Confidence Man
Why did James Knox preach these many bold lies to his congregation? They were calculated to bolster his credibility which fits well with his endgame agenda to deceive those "left behind" by Jewish Kabbalism (witchcraft) into obeying the Noahide Laws, worshiping the Jewish Antichrist, and taking his Mark of the Beast.
After the rapture, the KJV bible will be used by Jewish Kabbalists (like James Knox) by their witchcraft and divination to convince church members "left behind" to worship the Antichrist and to take his Mark. These Kabbalists (Rabbis will be brought to the churches) will employ witchcraft in order to "discern" the "esoteric" or the occult "hidden" meaning in the bible in order to trick those church members left behind.
"I have never had a call to preach," declared James Knox in "From Where I Stand: My Personal Testimony" (2013). (My comments are in blue)
1. "Some of you will not appreciate the following, but I have never heard or felt a specific call to preach. All I know is that from that day forward doors began to open." (p. 63)
"Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart." (Jeremiah 14:14)
Since Knox has never heard a call to preach, what kinds of doors began opening for him?
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber...The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." (John 1:1,10)
It should be obvious to Christians who have heard him preach that Knox has never been called by God.
2. "We never counted anyone as converted who said a prayer or made a profession of faith but did not subsequently join themselves to a church." (p. 70)
Knox pressures his congregation to evangelize for church members only.
3. "There were two small radio stations in our town, one programmed for senior citizens and the other with a country and western format. We went to the latter, WCCZ, and asked to meet with the station manager. In the office we were greeted by a large bald man in a bright blue leisure suit, wide white belt and white shoes, shirt unbuttoned halfway down to his navel, a huge Star of David hanging around his neck, and a 32nd degree Mason's ring on his finger. What a sight! "We told him we were interested in purchasing airtime so we could preach the gospel. He smiled and said, 'As fate would have it, I just had 30 minutes on Sunday morning come available.' (p.82)
Not only did a Jewish Freemason give Knox his start in "Christian" radio, but Knox was able to recognize the degree his Masonic ring represented. Is Knox also a Jewish Freemason?
3a. "I was offered a job writing radio programs for Charles Halff and the Christian Jew Hour." (Footnote 27 on p. 154)
Charles Halff is a Jew. Knox wouldn't be offered this job if he wasn't also a Jew.
4. "We do not involve ourselves in any form of politics or in social issues." (p. 162)
Knox's Zionist agenda is nothing but politics.
5. "Do not waste one minute of your time with Greek or Hebrew. Not once since December 17, 1976 in ministering to the saved or witnessing to the lost have I ever had any reason to know or refer to anything in those tongues..." (p.208)
Though Knox says that spending time in the Hebrew and Greek is a "waste of time," this time spent is often essential in understanding God's word. To give an example:
The first verse in the Bible is, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." The following commentary is by FB Hole.
"The chapter opens with GOD. The word used in the Hebrew is Elohim, a word, remarkably enough, of plural form. This is the more striking when we remember that the Hebrew has, besides a singular, a dual form for its nouns. Dual signifies two, plural therefore signifying three or more. Yet the verb "created" is in the singular! Why this apparent breach of grammar? Evidently in order that in the very introduction to our knowledge of God we may receive a hint of the truth afterwards plainly revealed that He is a Trinity in Unity - three Persons yet one God. (L)
It's revealing that, by this admission, Knox has never taught his congregation this important truth or any other truths that can only be known by turning to the Hebrew and Greek.
6. "When I set down to study my method is a very simple one. I ask the following questions of the passage... Can I define each word?" (p. 209)
Since Knox won't refer to the Greek or Hebrew, how does he define each word? Also, understanding God's word requires knowing the correct context, not merely the definition of words. To advance his Zionist and Kabbalist agenda, Knox must actually redefine each word.
7. "I find most churches exist only to exist. They serve no valid function in this world. They minister to and for themselves. They should be closed!" (p. 214)
The ministry of the church is to perfect and to edify the body of Christ and not to serve the world as Knox states.
"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ..." (Ephesians 4:11-12)
The Gospel is being preached not to help or to convert the world, but to gather out of it a people for His name. "God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name." (Acts 15:14)
It's evident that James Knox is not a Christian, a Christian teacher, or a Christian pastor. It's also evident from his constant criticism of the Church that he hates Christ's Church.
James Knox's Agenda is to Deceive those Church Members "Left Behind" into Worshiping the Antichrist and Taking his Mark
The rapture of the Church is imminent. All Christians sealed with the Holy Spirit are securely held by God and will surely be taken. Knowing this, the Devil and his agents working within churches have not focused their attention so much on edifying the soon departing Body of Christ, but on deceiving those many church members who will be left behind.
Their agenda calls for those left behind to worship the Antichrist and to take his Mark. To facilitate this agenda, agents are busy confusing end time events. In particular, congregations are being confused regarding Christ's second coming, as well as to the identity of the Antichrist and his Mark.
On March 13, 2022, James Knox gave a sermon (below) titled, Self Cleansing / 2 Corinthians-Lesson 16. In this sermon Knox not only confused the rapture with the second coming of Christ, but repeatedly preached that there will be no signs given for Christ's second coming. This can be heard starting at about the 15:18 mark of the video below.
Why did Knox say that there will be no signs for Christ's second coming when God's word gives many signs? And why did Knox mock Christians who correctly discern that we are very close to Christ's coming when he preached, "You ain't close to nothing, but higher gas prices."
At the 19:30 mark, Knox discouraged his congregation from even trying to find out the identity of the Antichrist. Knox preached, "Well shouldn't we spend our whole life finding out who the Antichrist is and talking about what he's gonna do? No, here's all you need to know. We're leaving. He comes to power. The Lord destroys him. Now go win someone to Christ and enjoy your family. Come to church, stop skipping church to try to research who the Antichrist is."
Is that all his church members need to know about the Antichrist? That he's coming to power and that the Lord will destroy him? Since many church members in Knox's congregation will be left behind, perhaps they or their family need to know something more. Would it be helpful if they knew the Antichrist's identity (Thomas Plantard de Saint Clair)? Or the identity of his Mark (The Star of David)? Would it be helpful if they knew when the Antichrist takes power? (at Mid-Tribulation and not immediately after the rapture when his counterfeit takes power)?
Why does James Knox Teach the Absurdity that the King James Version Bible Translation is Superior to the Original Manuscripts?
In 2012, James Knox gave a sermon at Charity Baptist Church in Incheon, South Korea. Knox taught the Korean Christians that the King James translation is perfect and even superior to the original manuscripts. Why?
At about 24:30 of the You Tube below Knox says the following:
"Let's see what God says about translating. Come to Hebrews 11:5. 'By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him.' Enoch was living in a world full of sin, then God translated him. Now he's living in Heaven in the presence of God. I ask you, 'Was Enoch's original condition better or was his translated condition better? According to the Bible, the translated Enoch was better than the original. So if a man says a translation can never be as good as the original, that's not what the Bible teaches."
It's incredibly deceitful to use the rapture or "the translation of Enoch" from earth to Heaven to "prove" that the KJV "translation" is superior to the originals. Why has Knox gone to this very desperate length to convince Christians that the KJV bible is perfect and inerrant? The reason is because after the rapture, the KJV bible will be used by Jewish kabbalists, like James Knox, by their witchcraft and divination to convince the church members "left behind" to worship the Antichrist and to take his Mark. These Kabbalists will employ witchcraft in order to "discern" the "esoteric" or the occult "hidden" meaning in the bible to trick those left behind church members. Read more here.
James Knox's Deceptive Teaching is from the Babylonian Talmud
In the above video, at the 40.00 mark, James Knox is desperate to "prove" that the KJV translation is superior to the originals. Knox's lies are highlighted in blue.
"The first set of tables were written with the finger of God. The second set, God said to Moses, 'You write them.' The only 10 commandments anyone on earth ever saw were those written by men. Moses wrote the copy. God wrote the original. The God who wrote the original also gave the copy. Even though it was man who wrote the copy."
Knox's false teaching is that God wrote the original 10 commandments and Moses wrote the copy; therefore, the KJV translation (the copy) is as perfect as the original manuscripts. Knox's reasoning is fallacious since God wrote the copy of the 10 commandments and not Moses as he stated. Knox's false teaching is based on his deliberate misinterpretation of Exodus 34:28.
"And the Lord said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel. And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments." (Exodus 34:2-28) In verse 27, God told Moses to write a transcript of the covenant and not to write a copy of the 10 commandments.
Deuteronomy 10:1-4 confirms that the words "he wrote" in Exodus 34:28 refer back to "the LORD."
"1 At that time the LORD said unto me, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and make thee an ark of wood. 2 And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark. 3 And I made an ark of shittim wood, and hewed two tables of stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two tables in mine hand. 4 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me."
Where did James Knox get his false teaching that Moses wrote the 10 Commandments on the second tables of stone? It is a common practice of Jewish Rabbis to cite one verse of the Old Testament and exclude others to wrest the Scriptures to mean the opposite of what God actually said. The following article by a Jewish Rabbi and Professor at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York presents the same argument that Knox used to deceive Christians about the divine origin of the Ten Commandments.
"Who Wrote the Ten Commandments?:" (excerpt)
"Where does our Torah come from? Did all the words of the Torah come from heaven, so that the Torah is a perfect divine work? If that is the case, then the tradition the Torah inaugurates is one that human beings should accept in its entirety without introducing any changes. Or is the Torah itself the result of human-divine collaboration? If that is the case, the tradition the Torah inaugurates may allow some change, at least by those Jews of each generation who accept the Torah and live by its commandments...
"When Moses prepares the second set of tablets, however, the information our parashah [Biblical text] provides moves in a different direction: 'He was with God 40 days and 40 nights; he ate no food and drank no water; and he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments' (34:28). The subject of the verb wrote, like the subject of the preceding three verbs, seems to be Moses. ... This verse contradicts the plain sense of God's command in 34:1...
"Other interpreters, however, maintain that Moses, not God, wrote the second set of tablets ... These interpreters explain the contradiction between 34:1 and 34:28 by suggesting that in verse 1 God does not intend literally that He will write the second set, but that Moses will do so on His behalf. According to this reading, the verb back in 34:1 was in the first person only to show that God approves what Moses writes or that God provides Moses strength to carry out the writing....Grammatically, this is a stronger interpretation: Moses took on what was originally supposed to be God's role, and he participated in place of God in producing the words on the tablets the Israelites received...
"The Book of Exodus wants us to realize that human beings participated in the creation of the Torah. But it does not want us to be too sure about how far that participation extended. It teaches us that the authority behind the commands that came from Sinai is divine, and thus that all Jews are required to observe Jewish law. But it also suggests that, to some degree, observant Jews of each generation, like those at Sinai, can participate in writing the law. It is in the tension between these two views of tradition and change that the most authentic and ancient form of Judaism dwells."
It is obvious that James Knox got his teaching from the Talmud, Jewish writings which are in opposition to the Old Testament and have replaced the Old Testament in Judaism. Like James Knox, the Talmudic Rabbis based their judgment on a few verses in Exodus but excluded the definitive passage, Deuteronomy 10:1-4. The Jewish rabbis, like James Knox, have demoted the Ten Commandments, written by the hand of God, to a human origin. As such, the Ten Commandments lose their divine authority and may be modified or ignored as having no eternal consequences.
James Knox Deceives by Teaching that the Mark of the Beast will be a "Black Spot."
One recent teaching given by James Knox on Nov 6, 2021 is titled, "The Mark of the Beast / Chapter 13 / Lesson 146." In this teaching, James Knox identifies the Mark of the Beast as being a "black spot" that will be received in the middle of one's forehead. Knox rationalizes this notion with the absurdity that because the Beast described in Rev. 13: 2 is partly "like unto a leopard" and all leopards have black spots, then the Mark of the Beast will be a "black spot." What actually is The Mark of the Beast? The Mark of the Beast is the Hexagram (Star of Remphan, Seal of Solomon, Star of David), which is the emblem on the State of Israel's flag.
James Knox's blasphemy against Jesus Christ: Jesus is not a King on His Throne, but just a "Prince in Waiting"
On 5/29/22 James Knox's sermon was titled, "The Coming of the Lord/Micah-Lesson 3." During that sermon Knox said, "Revelation 1:5, 'And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.' Now listen. If he's the prince of the kings of the earth that means he is not on the throne, but he is in line for the throne. Do you understand that?...He's not the king, he's the prince. That bothers some of you [It should bother anyone who knows God's Word.]...Jesus Christ is a prince. That means he's in line for a throne, but somebody's got to get off that throne in order for him to take the throne."
Later, Knox said, "He hath on his vesture and a name written, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. There it is. He's a prince in waiting now, when he comes back he will be a king."
According to Knox's false teaching, Jesus Christ is not now a King on His throne, but merely "a prince waiting in line for somebody to get off that throne." What does God's word say?
Acts 2:30: "Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne."
1 Timothy 1:17: "Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:15: "Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords.
Hebrews 1:8: "But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom."
There is a reason James Knox demotes Jesus to a mere prince, instead of the King of Kings. Cults like Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus is Michael the Archangel, a created being who will be "the great prince which standeth for the children of Israel." (Daniel 12:1) During the Tribulation period, a counterfeit Prince Michael the Archangel will slay the Roman Dragon and fulfill Daniel 12:1 and Revelation 12:7: "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels..." This counterfeit Prince Michael will claim to be the messiah. (See: The Merovingian Dynasty: The Roman Dragon)
"James Knox's False Teachings are Repelled, Refuted, and Rebuked"
"James Knox's False Teachings on Election Repelled, Refuted, and Rebuked" is an excellent article written by Pedro Almeida. The following are a few quotes from his article.
"We could barely believe the large amounts of false doctrines that Pastor Knox was teaching in such a short period of time." "Pastor Knox must be rebuked also because of this sorry mishandling of the word of God." "Pastor Knox is distorting, twisting, and mishandling the Bible...That is shameful deception." "[Pastor Knox's] statement is so silly and ridiculous that it's easily refuted." "It is sad to see how far from the bible a preacher will go to prove his stubbornness." "It is a sad and frightful situation when a preacher...puts himself so far from the clear teachings of the bible that he ends up deceiving himself and others, denying so blatantly the scriptures." "[Knox] is putting to shame the name Baptist, but worse than that he is twisting the words of God to whom he will give account."
James Knox Deceives by Teaching that the Mark of the Beast may be a Computer Chip
In his study on the Book of Revelation, James Knox makes no mention that the Mark of the Beast will be a brand/tattoo of the Star of David/Seal of Solomon/Star of Remphan, nor does he mention the translation errors in Revelation 13:16, 14:9 and 20:4. Knox neglects to teach that, according to God's word, the Mark of the Beast must be on and not in the hand and forehead. Instead, he hints that the Mark of the Beast may be a computer chip by stating that the end times Satanic system may involve "computer chips under the skin, and the use of DNA readers." Knox concludes by saying, "There is no reason to believe that the mark of the beast will not be accepted as readily as any other 'helpful, humanitarian' government program." (Knox, James W., The Book of Revelation, (Christ-Honoring Commentary Series) (pp. 455-456).
Stating that people will accept the Mark of the Beast as readily as they will accept a food stamp card is untrue given the stern warnings by God's angelic witnesses:
"A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name." (Rev. 14:9-11)
James Knox Teaches from the Jewish Kabbalah in his book, "Will Some Christians Miss the Kingdom?"
This book is preoccupied with the role of Christians in the earthly Millennial Kingdom of Israel and dispenses with the Christians' hope of Heaven and the New Jerusalem. One chapter in the book is titled, "Is the Believer's Place in the Millennial Kingdom Secure?" with one question posed throughout the book, "Will I lose my place in the Kingdom?" The premise of Knox's book is false. Raptured Christians will reign with Christ during the Millennium, however, they will be reigning from the heavenly New Jerusalem, whereas the Jewish remnant who are saved will rule their earthly kingdom from ancient Jerusalem.
In the book, Knox says,"Before we go on the reader must remember that heaven is not God, and God is not Heaven. Thus the terms kingdom of heaven and kingdom of God do not denote the same thing. Just as heaven is material, so the kingdom of heaven always speaks of the visible, physical throne and government of the Lord upon the earth..."
Knox's reasoning here is not only unbiblical, but is taught in the Kabbalah, the Jewish tradition of mystical interpretation of the Bible. The Kabbalah actually teaches that the nation of Israel is the "source and origin" of the Kingdom of Heaven, which can't even exist without Israel, the earthly kingdom.
"The earthly kingdom is the source and origin of the Heavenly. Remove the earthly kingdom and you remove the Divine Revelation of God in the midst of Israel. The Heavenly Kingdom is broken up and vanishes. Its raison d'etre is completely gone. " (Jewish Mysticism and Introduction to the Kabbalah p.85)
Also, contrary to what Knox teaches, in the New Testament, the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God are interchangeable and are without difference.
Matt 19:23-24-Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Matt 13:31-The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field...
Mark 4:30-31-Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed...
Knox, a crypto-Jewish deceiver, is promoted by Gail Riplinger, a Jew and a practitioner of Kabbalism, whose agenda is to infiltrate churches with Jewish Kabbalism (witchcraft), which involves divining God's word through the "hidden" meanings which lie within the letters of the KJV. This is why Knox and Gail Riplinger are both advocates of King James Onlyism and why both are insistent that the KJV is inerrant, that it must never be changed, and that Greek can never be used to understand its meaning. In fact, Riplinger even refers to Christians who do study the Greek text as "devils":
"The teachers of Greek...are full-grown devils, and the learners of Greek are little devils..." (Hidden History of the English Scriptures by Riplinger)
James Knox's book reveals his strong opposition to the use of any Greek which provides evidence for his Kabbalist agenda. Like Riplinger, Knox also ridiculed Greek study in response to a man who used Greek to better understand God's word.
"Less toying with Greek and more attention to English would help tremendously," said Knox and "I did not see more Greeks when I was in Athens," stated Knox.
When a clear meaning of God's word was given "from the construction of Greek words," Knox responded, "Give it a rest. Why this constant undermining of the Bible?"
Knox not only insists on a prohibition of any Greek, but to use Greek to gain understanding constitutes, according to Knox's Kabbalist agenda, "undermining of the Bible!" It doesn't matter at all to Knox that the Greek Textus Receptus IS the Bible and that the English King James is just one translation!
King James Version-Only Kabbalists, like James Knox, posing as Christians, are advocating for the use of an "inerrant, perfect bible" to lead Christians into occult practices and, ultimately, into the end-time deception of the Antichrist. Because Christians are unfamiliar with the occult world and its demonic practices they easily fall prey to deceivers like James Knox and his global network of King James Version-Only churches.
James Knox's Jewish Kabbalist Associations
James Knox is promoted by Gail Riplinger, a Jewish Kabbalist, who he refers to as Sister Riplinger. Gail Riplinger's mentor was James H Sightler, a crypt-Jew who promoted the Talmud (L) and who avidly promoted Riplinger's books.* James H Sightler's father was Dr. Harold B Sightler, who in 1952 founded Tabernacle Baptist Church in Greenville, SC. According to James Sightler, Harold Sightler read and praised the work of a medieval Kabbalist, Johann Reuchlin (1).
Harold B. Sightler was also a contemporary of Jack Hyles who spoke freqently at Sightler's Tabernacle Baptist Church. When Jack Hyles' 20 year adulterous affair and many other sex scandals at his First Baptist Church and other IFB Churches were exposed, Harold Sightler participated in the cover-up, according to a former student of Tabernacle Christian School:
"If a 13 year old boy in Greenville, South Carolina knew the sexual indescretions of a minister in Hammond Indiana in the late 60's, it is not a 'local church matter'. Why did it take 20 years for John R. Rice, Harold Sightler, Bob Jones Jr. Rod Bell, Walt Hanford, Oliver B. Green, Jack Van Impe and many others, to bring this man to account. Surely they knew more than this 13 year old boy."
From February 22-26 in 2021, James Knox spoke at this same Tabernacle Baptist Church which is within a large network of 5000 "independent fundamental Baptist" churches. James H Sightler's son-in-law, Joel Logan, is the current pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church and a frequent speaker (from 1999-2016) at James Knox's Bible Baptist Church conferences. James Knox is now selling 16 CD's of his church conferences that have had Joel Logan as a speaker, (the latest was the 2016 Bible Conference). Joel Logan's brother, Brent Logan, is also a frequent speaker at James Knox's church conferences and is the pastor of Sweet Springs Baptist Church in Ardmore, AL where James Knox last spoke from Sept. 14-16, 2020. James Knox's Assistant Pastor, David Brown, attended Sweet Springs Baptist Church under Pastor Joel Logan's teaching.
*The publications of James Sightler and Gail Riplinger are thoroughly leavened with deceptive documentation purporting to prove that the KJV is divinely inspired and inerrant: misquoted sources, manipulated data, revised Church history, Jewish Kabbalism, false teachings, numerous fallacies, speculations, inconsistencies, double standards, and unproven assumptions.

To Oppose Zionism with God's Word is to Commit the Unpardonable Sin in James Knox's Church
On Thursday night, Oct 29, 2020, I attended James Knox's church and while leaving a man greeted me outside in the parking lot. In the course of our conversation, I said that I opposed Knox's pro-Zionist sermon. I then quickly found out that to oppose Zionism is to commit the unpardonable sin in Knox's church.
Evidently, James Knox was told of my private conversation and on Sunday 11/1/20, he preached his "damage control" sermon (which can be heard in the You Tube below).
Having concerns with this "sermon," I emailed Knox's assistant pastor, David Brown:
"I'm emailing to advise you to listen very carefully to Knox's 'sermon' this Sun morning (11/1). His rant mocks the Church, Gentiles, and Christians who know and speak biblical truth..."
David Andrew Brown, Knox's Crypto-Jewish employee, emailed me back the following: "I will not continue to entertain your anti-Jewish hatred, your conspiracy theories, or your disparaging comments regarding my pastor."
James Knox's Church Cult Forbids Free Speech Among Christians
Shortly after telling one of Knox's church members in a parking lot that I opposed Knox's Zionist sermon, I received the following email from James Knox's employee, David Andrew Brown, on 11/2/20:
"You are not welcome to attend THE BIBLE Baptist Church and spread beliefs and/or teachings that are contrary to what our church and its leadership believes and teaches."
In not allowing me to "spread beliefs" contrary to what Knox's church and its leadership believes and teaches, though those beliefs are biblical, not only forbids my right to free speech, but qualifies James Knox's church as a cult. David Brown is in essence declaring that all Bible Baptist Church attendees must believe James Knox's many false teachings or leave.
In expressing the biblical truth that national Israel has no right to Palestine until the Jewish remnant believes in Jesus Christ to a fellow Christian in a private conversation, I incurred Knox's wrath and was labeled a Jew hater. Without doubt, Zionism is a fundamental doctrine of the faith at James Knox's Bible Baptist Church.
In response to my private conversation in a parking lot on 10/29, on 11/1 Knox gave the sermon (below) which displayed his Zionist agenda along with his very racist Jewish character.
James Knox's Jewish Zionist Rant (11/1/20)
Commentary on James Knox's Jewish Zionist rant (11/1/20)
James Knox's sermon which begins at about the 2 minute mark is not only unbiblical, but well represents his Jewish mentality and Zionist agenda. His sermon is excerpted below with my comments in blue.
2:16--"It's so strange. Your world is full of people who hate Jews and want to be Jews. It's the weirdest thing. It's so strange, everybody says the Jews are cursed, those people who say they're Jews aren't Jews cause we're Jews. Well, so are you cursed?"
Is it strange that people say the Jews are cursed? Jesus Christ cursed Israel for their rejection of Him:
"Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. (Matt 23:38,39). And the Jews cursed themselves:
"Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children." (Matt 27:25)
3:41--"It's almost as if the Holy Spirit knew that after 2000 years of bible preaching, churches would still be full of people who either think they are Jews or hate Jews.
Knox is lying. Are churches filled with people who hate Jews? At 2:16, Knox said that the world is full of people who hate Jews. Now at 3:41, Knox says that churches are full of people who hate Jews. Knox is a racist Jew and according to his beliefs, Christians are all "Jew haters" if they don't agree with Zionism.
6:54--"Now that God has started his church, guess who has the adoption? Israel. Guess who has the glory? Israel...None of those things were transferred to the church. None of those things were taken away from Israel."
Knox is lying. The church has these things. "That we might receive the adoption of sons." (Gal 4:5) "We have received the Spirit of adoption." (Romans 8:15) "Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ..." (Ephesians 1:5) "And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them." (John 17:22) Today, dispersed Israel has neither the adoption nor the glory.
8:15--"Romans 9:4 says they [the promises] still belong to Israel.
Knox is lying. Romans 9:6 states, "For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel." Most of Israel are children of the flesh; the children of God are the children of promise who will believe in Jesus Christ (Romans 9:7,8).
8:59--"People who don't read the bible, but believe everything they choose on the internet are arguing with pastors all over America that there wasn't a holocaust, that God's done with Israel, that Jews are the enemy of all righteousness and when you say show me that in the bible they send you to a website."
Knox is lying. Are Christians all over America arguing with pastors that there wasn't a holocaust? And how could any pastor be expected to establish its truthfulness since it occurred 1900 years after the bible was written? Christians know that God is not done with Israel and Christians know that national Israel won't be regathered until the Millennial Kingdom when the Jewish remnant believes in their Messiah, Jesus Christ. (Ezekiel 36-37, Zechariah 12-14)
9:30--"Why do people want promises of physical health and healing that God made to Israel and not to the Church? Property that God gave to Israel and not to the Church."
Knox is lying. God made conditional promises of health and property to Israel. He's also made promises of healing and property to the Church. Referring to Peter's mother-in-law: "That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses." (Matt 8:17) "To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit." (1 Cor. 12:9) Christians will rule and reign with Jesus and will inherit the entire world. "And has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth." (Rev. 5:10)
11:15--"Wouldn't it be a strange thing to say I'm a Christian and I'm anti-Jew?"
Is it a strange thing? "For ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men." (1 Thess 2:14-15)
Christians are God's chosen people and the unbelieving Jew has been condemned. The Jews crucified Jesus Christ and their descendants still hate Him today. To answer Knox's question, read what the Jews' bible, the Talmud, has to say about Jesus Christ and Christians. Also, one should understand the Jews' Noahide Laws which are US law today.
12:24--"Here's the point: Everything God gave to Israel before Calvary still belongs to the nation of Israel after Calvary."
Knox is lying. God's promises to Israel were conditional. God did promise the land to Israel, but both Judah and Israel were taken captive for their continual disobedience which culminated when they committed the unpardonable sin and crucified Jesus Christ. This is why Jesus cursed them: "Behold, your house [your land] is left unto you desolate." (Matt 23:38)
13:15--"Someone was making an issue Thursday night [10/29]. 'The Jews they're trying to take over the world.' What do I care? The Jews control Hollywood. So what? The Jews got Wall St. I don't care."
Knox is lying. I raised the issue he's referring to Thursday night as I told a man in a private conversation in Knox's church parking lot that I opposed Zionism. I never said anything about Jews controlling the world or Hollywood or Wall St and if Knox doesn't care, then why is he going on with this damage control three days after my conversation? And why was I ordered to never speak on this topic again within his church if Knox doesn't care? The truth is that, being a Jew, Knox can't allow Christians to suspect that the Jews do control the world and that they have a plan to kill them (see the Noahide Laws).
15:27--"Jerry Falwell, a Baptist, linked arms with the Mormon church and the Catholic Church to start the Moral Majority to get American Christians involved with politics."
Knox won't inform his congregation that Jerry Falwell linked arms with Israeli Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, and that Falwell was given a private jet by Israel to further their Zionist goals-which is the real "politics" Falwell got American Christians involved with. (L)
22:05--"I heard someone say, the only reason people pretend to be Jews in Israel is so that they can get money. America gives everyone money. We give money to everybody."
Knox wants to downplay the vast amount of money the US gives to Israel. For instance, in 2012, Obama signed a pledge to give Israel more than 70 billion dollars, the news of which was largely suppressed by the US media. (L) The US gives far more money to Israel, than to the rest of the world combined and, in addition, every US state in the nation must also give to Israel. Holding fast to his Zionist agenda, Knox is fanatical in his support for the counterfeit Israel that exists today in defiance of Jesus Christ.
23:15--"Here's what does bother me, there's some Jews in this county that have tripped over Christ and their souls aren't saved."
Knox pressures his church members to stand on street corners recruiting Gentiles. He never has them handing out gospel tracts at the local Synagogue or Chabad.
24:40--"Someone told me the other day these Jews run everything. Yeah, man, the NFL is just filled with Jews-Jew wide receivers and Jew running backs and Jew quarterbacks." (to his laughing and fooled congregation)
Assuming someone did tell this to Knox, obviously they meant that Jews run things of importance like The Fed or Hollywood, but Knox ridicules this statement and reduces it to an absurdity. Knox's fallacy in argument is known as reductio ad absurdum and although no one does care who controls football, notice that Knox only mentions the NFL's Gentile players, and not the NFL's Jewish team owners who do run the NFL.
