WHATEVER HAPPENED TO INTELLIGENT CONVERSATION??

100_3383

First and most important is knowing there is hundreds of millions websites, and hundreds of millions blogs/writings/articles/books covering all subjects in one way or another; so how is it possible for any to know who is right and who is wrong?

None, no, not one of this world through being affiliated in any worldly ways have spiritual understanding or obedience according to scripture not believed nor understood such as Revelation 12:9,  Job 15:15-16, Psalms 14:2-3, Isaiah 59:1-4, and much more concerning this world of Israelite – Christianity; and that includes those living by eternal law regarding 7th day Sabbath, Feasts, clean foods, and more according to The Torah being the only way to please YHVH, yet most all still remain walking in unseen darkness via false light as in having no love with deed for others, such as my wife and I living in many of life’s difficulties through these past 10 years — but rather all loving themselves and things of this world which makes knowing YHVH in spirit and truth totally impossible — so says the Holy Bible through scripture with instruction never taught by wolves in sheep’s clothing, or completely ignored by all reading words for their walk in this life..

There is an answer for what is right, but only few will spiritually comprehend its meaning of becoming disassociated with this world – therefore no longer a part while seeking direction from not of this world. . .

“If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. (John 15:19)

Would you like better understanding of the verse just read?

Because I have never been a church member in my life of 61 years, I am teachable to Yehovah via 27 years of private study – thus my brain circuits have not become corrupted through putting trust in myself nor humankind beliefs which only mislead; and because of that faith, trust, and living this past decade with many hardships through lacking basic need as just regular meals — and being detested by this world of Christianity that offers no help in any way – reason is because they lack fruits as instructed in the Bible. For example – John 13:34, 14:21, Matthew 22:36-40, 25:31-46, Luke 6:36-46, 1 John 3:15-20, 4:7-8, 20-21 — therefore will be thrown into the fires of affliction without mercy as written in John 15:1-6, and when resurrection for judgement comes, they all will be judged as the selfish goats not allowed to be in the millennial kingdom.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/09/03/the-millennial-resurrections/

I therefore follow this instruction:

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. If then you have been raised with Yeshua [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Yeshua is, seated at the right hand of Yehovah Elohim. And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth. For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Yeshua in Elohim. When Yeshua, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in [the splendor of His] glory.   (Proverbs 3:5-6, Colossians 3:1-4)

When an entire human race becomes nothing but controlled pawns within our dying civilization, which is also Satan’s Kingdom, all that any know is what their natural mind chooses (1 Corinthians 2:14) according to what has been planted in their thoughts while continually being fed lies, mislead, and themselves feeling secure as knowing all needed; when in truth, every individual of this world being near 7.5 billion have been sucked into the vortex of what is coming as the worst timesoftrouble ever before on this earth, which according to all the signs of the times (Matthew 16:2-3) is almost upon America, and all great nations worldwide bringing much affliction for 3 1/2 years — until the antichrist appears doing great miracles to make all things seem right, with today’s Christianity included, so that he is worshiped by all worldwide as God — only to bring 3 1/2 years great tribulation, death, and destruction everywhere upon earth.

So how can we know exactly where humanity now stands as believers?

“While He was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end (the completion, the consummation) of the age?  Yeshua answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error].  (Matthew 24:3-4)

First of all comes one main fact not believed, and that is because noone on this earth being of this world, including billions of Bible believers, will accept these words of scripture with themselves included. . .

“And the huge dragon was cast down and out—that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him. Revelation 12:9

If you genuinely want to know Satan’s purpose for his earthy kingdom . . .

If only humankind could remove eyes from themselves, they would first see our world of division, and then what is really happening to civilization worldwide followed with what has been done to rivers, lakes, oceans, soil, air, and even the junkyard in orbit; and when added there is no end to all the atrocities committed against our human race since the beginning, and during these end times comes massive population reduction as part of the plan for the new world order.

“For many will come in (on the strength of) My name [appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Yeshua (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray. (verse 5)

What you just read above represents this entire world of false religion known as Christianity that has uncountable different doctrines, spirits, images, beliefs, traditions, wrongly titled names being God and Jesus Christ, and much more having nothing to do with truth; and I have always been just as guilty through using the same names as billions – until Yehovah (YHVH ELOHIM) made clear the importance of knowing not only His personal name, but also Yeshua HaMashiach our world saviour through verses never taught or even discussed in today’s Christianity. Proverbs 30:4, Psalms 9:10, John 17:6, 17:26, and many more when any genuine believer will actually study to show themselves approved. (2 Timothy 2:15)

Below shares some information on proper names – but what is most important is our search with desire to know what all worldly know not — such as loving others through more than meaningless words having no works, not using mistranslated names for our eternal creator Yehovah and Yeshua, keeping all commandments, and thus becoming worthy as firstfruits through obedience for great never ending reward. (Revelation 5:10)

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/ljD9ZQ/vital-untaught-truth-in-all-religions-worldwide

Contains near 200 pages using scripture on just how YHVH views all shepherds, preachers, pastors, ministers, reverends, bishops, prophets, and all religious titles including the Pope along with how He labels congregations worldwide — and truth from the Bible is not pleasing to this world of so-called Christians talking religious talk while not walking their instructed walk as doers of the word, rather than hearers only deceiving themselves.

And know also there is no religious leaders within the buildings of man, falsely called churches, worldwide where Satan dwells that will tell you truth going against them, or why Christians should love others as themselves being the royal law they all ignore. (James 1:22-25, 2:8, 13-26) Also in this reading is how those obedient will gain YHVH’s mercy during affliction.

“Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness, To deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for the Lord; He is our Help and our Shield. For in Him does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in His holy name. So then He has mercy on whomever He wills (chooses) and He hardens (makes stubborn and unyielding the heart of) whomever He wills.I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.  (Psalms 33:18-21, Romans 9:18, Jeremiah 17:10)

Back to Matthew 24

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place; All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish].  Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. (verses 6-9)

This world has always had many wars, conflicts, violence, famine, and much shed blood; however, just as our population has increased, so has human knowledge (Daniel 12:4) for weapons with nuclear, biological, and chemical included for mass extermination – thus leaving this world of wars, rebel violence, drug cartels, human trafficking, slavery, racial hate, genocide, torture, great suffering, famine, drought, earthquakes, and much more disaster — being end time prophecy — accompanied with much evil upon a blinded world of innocent people that have never had any proper rule based on laws of love with peace and unity – rather than what Satan represents being lies, hate, wars, and death.

 “And then many will be offended and repelled and will begin to distrust and desert [Him Whom they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred. And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error. And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity, (verses 10-12)

Because our world civilization has always been more unstable than water, and because all beliefs, religions, and Christianity have never been taught truth on their own coming destiny having no safety, no rapture, and no escape — massive and very extreme suffering is coming upon a human race totally unprepared — therefore, through years of affliction, deception, and mislead, multitudes of Israelite Christians will believe the antichrist has been the cause of all their suffering through strong delusion. . .

“The coming of the [Antichrist, the lawless] one is through the activity of Satan, [attended] with great power [all kinds of counterfeit miracles] and [deceptive] signs and false wonders [all of them lies], and by unlimited seduction to evil and with all the deception of wickedness for those who are perishing, because they did not welcome the love of the truth [of the gospel] so as to be saved [they were spiritually blind, and rejected the truth that would have saved them]. Because of this God will send upon them a misleading influence, [an activity of error and deception] so they will believe the lie, (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11)

Therefore, today’s misled world of Christianity will be among this world’s joy when the witnesses in Revelation have been killed, and lie three and a half days. Read Revelation 11:7-4, and then for a better understanding, this link below to learn who those two witnesses really are.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/10/17/the-two-witnesses-of-revelation-2/

So what exactly do these following words mean?

But he who endures to the end will be saved. (Verse 13)

Isaiah 6 Revelation 6 002Isaiah 6 and Revelation 6 means to endure regardless of circumstance that has taken multitudes by surprise and without warning; and all because this world of shepherds teach not truth as made clear in scripture; therefore even with years of what I study through prayer to deliver — scorpions hear not what YHVH speaks. (Ezekiel 2 KJV)

Those under persecutions and afflictions, holding fast their faith even though it leads to the martyr’s death, – will have earned whatever their position may be within the millennial kingdom according to their fruits.  So become wise and know that all Christian Israelite’s must not be led astray by false teachers nor offended by the prevalence of lies, wickedness, immorality, greed, dishonesty, or hate – while through faith retaining their love for YHVH, and understanding why these things must be.

And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end. (Matthew 24:14)

Who will become the teacher preachers spreading news of the coming kingdom worldwide during great tribulation?

Warning With Instruction For Christianity “COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE”

revelation-001

Revelation 18:4, Chapters 2 & 3 

The book of Revelation communicates a strong message of warning to the Church of Yahusha the Messiah.  It tells of the present condition and the future destiny of the people who fill the pews every Sunday morning and call themselves by the name of “Jesus.”  It speaks of what is wrong with the Christian Church of the last days, and pleads with her to repent of her sins and lawless ways.  It graphically portrays the Christian Church as an Harlot at the time just prior to his return!  And it begs the members of that congregation to “come out of her, my people.”

The time for any willing to shake loose from bias through viewing the big picture on how Yehovah views congregations has arrived; therefore know that only our creator can open the eyes of those He chooses according to truth of scripture never taught – whereas all others will be hardened just as written in Romans 9:15-18, or remain with natural minds without spiritual knowledge. 1 Corinthians 2:14

Know also that those which have become totally disassociated with this world of religion and human ways — have been called out of this world in John 15:19 to walk their commanded walk as instructed in Colossians 3, and not the way this world of Christianity walks. Want better understanding of John 15:18-21?

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/LR4Qwb/how_christians_lacking_spiritual_knowledge_hate_god

As a very true and genuine believer, I am ready to suffer through affliction as written in Matthew 24 and Revelation 6 — are you? Did knot Yeshua suffer? are we not to follow His steps?

Concerning Torah keepers and those who worship Yehovah — how sure of not being amongst those in Isaiah 59 are you? What have you ever really done for others even if it means a little self sacrifice? Do you really love others as yourself? Through this past decade, I have seen but few, and even those were as a one time help with nothing more. Read Luke 6:38 while knowing what you can expect during famine, or Psalms 33:18-21 with or without Yehovah’s mercy going back to Romans 9:18 KJV.

The book of Revelation has been badly misinterpreted and poorly misunderstood by most Christians.  Our fathers have inherited lies.  These lies have been passed down from generation to generation resulting in a set of core beliefs which bear no resemblance to what the Scriptures actually teach.  We have been taught that Revelation speaks of what is going to happen in the future after the church has been snatched up into heaven in an alleged pre tribulation rapture.  We have been told that the sorrowful events of the Revelation will not affect the church of Jesus Christ.  They tell us that all those things will happen to unbelievers in the future after the true believers are gone.  But none of that is true.

The book of Revelation has been given to the “messengers of the congregation” as a warning and a plea to examine herself and to repent so as not to be recipients of the final wrath of Elohim.  In chapters two and three, Yeshua the Messiah sends rebukes and warnings to his people because they are not fully obeying his word.  From there till almost the end of the book, Elohim sends difficulties, calamities and disasters to the inhabitants of planet Earth to provoke his people and the rest of earth’s inhabitants to repentance.  Then toward the end of Revelation, just before the final wrath of Yahuwah falls, Yahusha portrays the institutional church as an harlot riding the Beast, unwilling to repent of her harlotries.  And he begs the true believers to “come out of her, my people.”  And those who refuse to leave Babylon’s practices are judged!

Proper names of the Father and Son not used in this article can be found in links below for any being few seeking spiritual understanding on world deception.

What are the sins of the Christian churches which Yahuwah is begging her to repent of?  The church isn’t really that bad, is it?  What is it that the Christian churches believe and practice that has gotten Elohim so angry with her that he refers to her as an harlot?

Harlotry in the Scriptures

To understand what harlotry represents in the book of Revelation requires a bit of background study in the Tanak (Old Testament).  Before we can properly understand the harlot of Revelation 17, 18 and her acts of harlotry, we must find out from the Torah and the Prophets precisely who might be fitting of such a notorious appellation.

The term “harlot” in its various forms occurs over 100 times in the New American Standard Bible.  As we would expect, quite a few of those times, it refers to the act of marital infidelity.  Rahab of Jericho is referred to as an harlot, presumably because of her immoral lifestyle as seen in her chosen profession (Joshua 2).  Judah’s daughter-in-law Tamar played the harlot by tricking him into sleeping with her so that she could raise up seed for her deceased husband (Genesis 38).  There are additionally references to both male and female temple prostitutes, exhortations (in Proverbs) to flee from the immorality of hooking up with a prostitute, and statements in the Torah of judgments against marital unfaithfulness.

The core meaning of harlotry and prostitution is that of being committed in a relationship and in a vow with one individual and breaking that vow by becoming physically attached to another individual.  The marital commitment is not to be made lightly.  It is expected to last a lifetime.  Thus, when a person betrays that commitment by sleeping with another, he has broken the vow and endangered (perhaps put to death) the relationship with his\her spouse.

Accordingly, the term harlotry came to be used of the broken relationship between Yahuwah and his people as a result of their sinful ways.  In fact, “harlot” and “harlotry” are used more frequently in this sense in the Scriptures.  In the first instance of our word used in that context, Moses scolds the Israelites:

for you shall not worship any other god, for Yahuwah, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous Elohim — otherwise you might make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land and they would play the harlot with their gods and sacrifice to their gods, and someone might invite you to eat of his sacrifice (Exodus 34:14,15, NAS)

‘Playing the harlot with their gods’ is a expression which suggests that Israel might walk away from worshiping Yah in the way he desires, and go worship the way the unbelievers do.  This would constitute ‘harlotry” in Yahuwah’s sight.

By turning to any other god, Yah’s people are committing spiritual adultery.  So, as in the text to follow, offering a child to Molech, the god of fire, is harlotry:

‘If the people of the land, however, should ever disregard that man when he gives any of his offspring to Molech, so as not to put him to death, then I Myself will set My face against that man and against his family, and I will cut off from among their people both him and all those who play the harlot after him, by playing the harlot after Molech. (Leviticus 20:4,5)

Likewise, to listen to and heed spiritists, card and palm readers and the like, is unfaithfulness to the Elohim of heaven:

As for the person who turns to mediums and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My face against that person and will cut him off from among his people. (Leviticus 20:6 NAS)

The prophets used a lot of ink to rebuke unfaithful Yisrael and Yehuda regarding their turning to and worshiping other gods.  Isaiah speaks of the sins of the people of Jerusalem and declares:

How the faithful city has become a harlot, She who was full of justice! Righteousness once lodged in her, But now murderers. (Yeshayahu 1:21 NAS)

Jeremiah speaks in the same vein:

Then Yahuwah said to me in the days of Josiah the king, “Have you seen what faithless Israel did? She went up on every high hill and under every green tree, and she was a harlot there.  “I thought, ‘After she has done all these things she will return to Me’; but she did not return, and her treacherous sister Judah saw it.  “And I saw that for all the adulteries of faithless Israel, I had sent her away and given her a writ of divorce, yet her treacherous sister Judah did not fear; but she went and was a harlot also. (Yirmyahu 3:6-8 NAS)

And Ezekiel uses this metaphor in several rebukes, in chapters 6, 16, 20, 23.  For example,

These things will be done to you because you have played the harlot with the nations, because you have defiled yourself with their idols. (Yechezqel 23:30 NAS)

And finally, Hosea gets in on the act:

They will eat, but not have enough; They will play the harlot, but not increase, Because they have stopped giving heed to Yahuwah.  Harlotry, wine and new wine take away the understanding.  My people consult their wooden idol, and their diviner’s wand informs them; For a spirit of harlotry has led them astray, And they have played the harlotdeparting from their Elohim. (Hoshea 4:10-12 NAS)

The picture portrayed of Elohim’s covenant nation of ancient times is clearly that of a stubborn, backsliding people who want to worship Elohim in their own way.  They prefer to worship Elohim in the manner which He finds to be offensive and reprehensible.  He is a jealous Elohim.  He described in detail the manner in which his people are to worship Him.  But his people wanted to worship Him by using the same customs and practices which their pagan neighbors used to worship their idol gods.  Thus, he regarded them as unfaithful to His ways and labeled them an harlot.

The Harlot of Revelation

So when we look at the metaphor of the harlot in the book of Revelation, we have a long standing history of Elohim’s people as a reference to guide us in our understanding.  It makes perfect sense that the sense of the term “harlot” as used by the New Covenant prophets would be at least similar and likely identical to the sense in which the Old Covenant prophets used that term.  The harlot of Revelation can be nothing else but the people living in the last days who claim to be Elohim’s people through the New Covenant, who, like their counterpart of old, want to be called by Elohim’s name (worshippers of “Jesus”) but who want to worship Him in their own way, like their unbelieving neighbors who worship false gods.  Thus, the Harlot is the Christian Church, worshipping “God” and practicing their faith in their own way, and not the way that Elohim has revealed in His word as the only proper and acceptable way to worship Him.

The harlot of the book of Revelation is described as sitting on a beast:

One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.” Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Yahusha. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. (Revelation 17:1-6, NIV)

In this passage, the Beast is described as having seven heads and ten horns.  The identical details about the Beast are given in Revelation 13, where the additional details depict a politico-religious system of the last days which will control world economy and stand opposed to Elohim:

He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority…Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast… (verses 1,2,4). 

There are several striking similarities between this beast from the sea and the fourth beast in Daniel’s vision (chapter 7).  Both have ten horns.  The ten horns of both represent ten kings.  Both are set in the context of the conflict in the last days.  Both persecute the saints of Elohim.  And both will ultimately be overthrown when Elohim sets up his everlasting kingdom.

At one time the harlot is described in the same terms as the Beast and then at another time there seems to be a clear distinction between the two.  This confusion over identifying the Beast and the Harlot who rides the Beast may best be reconciled as follows:  The city of Rome is the Beast.  And the Church which has its headquarters in Rome is the harlot which rides the Beast (resides in Rome).

Confirmation of this identification of the Beast as being the city of Rome can be seen in history.  First, at the time of the writing of Revelation, Rome was the great persecutor of the Christian Church, and thus fulfills Revelation 18:24: “And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”  And up through till after the time of the Reformers, Rome has been the city where all who find faith in the Scriptures rather than in the Roman Church have been persecuted and killed.

For many centuries, Bible interpreters have been saying that the beast of Daniel 7, Revelation 13 and Revelation 17 springs up from Rome.  This interpretation is still held by many expositors in our own day because of the enormous weight of evidence pointing to the city of Rome. First, we might consider that the seven heads of the beast “are seven hills on which the woman sits” (Revelation 17:9).  From ancient times, Rome has been customarily referred to as ‘the city of seven hills.’

The method of historical interpretation, which views the prophesies of Revelation as being fulfilled historically during the church age, sees the prophecy of the ten horns of the beast, which represent ten kings, fulfilled in the 5th century C.E.  At that time the Roman Empire split up into ten distinct tribes, which roughly correspond to present day Europe. This interpretation was one of the main tenants of the Great Reformation, which saw in the Church that resides in Rome a complete fulfillment of those biblical prophecies. William Kimball points out that “the twofold truth that ‘the just shall live by faith’ and the claim that the Roman Church characterized the antichrist system represented the battle cry of the Reformation.” (Kimball, pp.30,31)  So the Beast refers to the City of Rome, or the institutions which were headquartered in Rome.

Babylon and the Harlot Identified

The Harlot, on the other hand, refers to the people who call themselves by “God”s name who are in Rome.  The Harlot is seen as riding the Beast because the Christian Church in Rome has always used governmental authority to enforce her edicts.  The Book of Revelation even identifies the harlot by the title that is written on her forehead:

This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH (Revelation 17:5)

Recall that the name of the Father (Yahuwah) and the name of the Lamb (Yahusha) are written on the foreheads of those who belong to Elohim (Revelation 14:1).  But there is a different name written upon the followers of the Beast.  The harlot woman who rides the Beast, comprised of those people who worship the Beast, is identified as those who have the same characteristics as those of ancient Babylon.  We need to merely identify the worship practices of the ancient Babylonians, and we will know the worship style of those who comprise the Beast system, and will thereby confirm the identity of the Harlot!

The Babylonian mother-child cult religious system is well known in history.  The false worship it fosters is summarized in three specific worship practices.  It featured worship on the first day of the week in honor of the “invincible sun.”  It promotes worship of “god” on the birthday of the cult-son at the winter solstice at or around December 25.  And it demands worship of “god” at the spring equinox sunrise service to honor the resurrection (rebirth) of Ishtar (hence, “Easter”).  In contrast to their worship practices, the Scriptures make it clear that Elohim is to be worshipped in truth by keeping His Sabbath day, and by observing the festival Holy Days of Passover and Tabernacles.  But the Babylonian worshippers want to worship him on Sunday instead of on the Sabbath day which He sanctified, on Easter instead of on Passover which is when Yahusha told his disciples to remember him, and on Christmas instead of on Tabernacles which is when Yahusha was really born!

What group practices these same three worship customs?  Why, of course, it’s the Christian Church!

Note that the name written of the harlot’s forehead is “Mother of Harlots.”  The Church at Rome is the Harlot.  And the fact that she is the Mother of Harlots corresponds to the fact that the rest of the Christian Churches of the world are her daughters.  The Protestant Christian denominations of the world are rightly called her daughters because, although they claim to be in “protest” of her doctrines, they still follow in the mother church’s footsteps when it comes to customs, traditions and practices.  The mother church practices the pagan customs, traditions and holidays of the pagan Babylonian sun-god worshippers, and the daughter churches – the Protestant churches – do the same.  They are her offspring because they practice the same traditions that she does.  They put into practice all the abominable practices of her mother – the Roman Catholic Church – when they celebrate “the Son” on Sunday, Christmas and Easter, which they erroneously believe honors Elohim.  But he hates those things.

And Elohim will judge that institution.  In one day, the mother church will be destroyed:

After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory. And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.  “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”  I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues.  (Revelation 18:1-4 DMR)

To correctly identify who is being referred to as Babylon here, and to whom Yahuwah is calling to “come out of her, my people,” we must summarize the following:  To whom is Elohim speaking when he says “come out of her, my people”? (answer: those who profess faith in Christ)  Whom is Elohim rebuking in Revelation 2 and 3? (answer: those who profess faith in Christ)  Who has rejected the Torah of Elohim and has thus earned the designation “harlot”?  (answer: those who profess faith in Christ)  Who sits on 7 hills? (answer: Roman Christianity)  Whose customs, traditions and practices have originated in Babylon of old? (answer: The Roman Church and all those who profess faith in Christ)  Who has refused to worship Yahuwah in the manner which he has revealed in his word?  (answer: those who profess faith in Christ)

Those who profess faith in the Messiah are the people whom Elohim calls “my people.”  This would include Catholics and Protestants, Evangelicals and Fundamentalists, Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, Assemblies of God, Adventists, Church of God, and any other group or assembly that claims Jesus as their Lord.  It is to the whole Christian world that Yahuwah is calling to come out of the pagan religious system and practices which he so strongly abhors.

The Christian church is the group whom Elohim is rebuking in Revelation 2 and 3.  They are the people whom Elohim is warning that his judgment is about to fall.  They are the ones who have lost their first love.  They have followed after the way of Balaam in their acts of sexual immorality, which runs prevalent in many churches today.  They are the ones who are dead though they think they are alive, and lukewarm though Elohim would rather have them hot or cold.

The Breaking of the Torah in Revelation

The Christian Church is the people who have rejected Elohim’s instructions to them – the Torah or “Law” – and have thus earned the designation “harlot.”  Even though the Book of Revelation portrays her that way, the Babylonian/Christian theologians have somehow missed this tiny little detail in their expositions of Revelation.  The mother church, the Roman Catholic Church, has rejected Elohim’s authority and has established her own authority to change Elohim’s laws and write her own law.  Likewise, the Protestant churches have similarly rejected the instructions Elohim gave in the Torah, and have popularized their belief in the “setting aside” or “nullifying” of Elohim’s laws by convincing their members that Jesus nailed God’s Law to the tree.  But nothing could be further from the truth.

The fact that Elohim’s laws and commandments are still relevant (i.e. have not been nailed to the tree) is most emphatically illustrated in Revelation by the way Elohim’s faithful ones are described.  They are not identified by some label, such as “Christians” or “Church members.”  On the contrary, Yahuwah chooses to identify his people by their actions.  They are recognized by the one in whom they trust and by their obedience to his commandments:

Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring– those who obey Elohim’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Yahusha. (12:17, NIV corrected)

This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey Elohim’s commandments and remain faithful to Yahusha. (14:12, NIV corrected)

If keeping Elohim’s commandments is not important, then why are His people in the last days distinguished from the unbelievers by their act of obedience to His commandments?  Clearly, obedience to his Law and Commands is a vital life sign of the true believer.  And disobedience to his commands indicates a lack of faith and trust and relationship with the Almighty.

Let’s take a look at the Ten Commandments and what the book of Revelation has to say about the breaking of them.  Then we can come to some conclusion about the veracity of  the Christian church’s belief that the Laws of Elohim have been nailed to the tree.  Here then are the Ten Commandments, which are a summary of all of Yahuwah’s instructions to his people.  The New American Standard version of Exodus 20:2-17, with the sacred name restored, is cited:

Commandment 1: I am Yahuwah your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.  You shall have no other gods before Me.

Commandment 2:  You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.  You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, Yahuwah your Elohim, am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Commandment 3:  You shall not take the name of Yahuwah your Elohim in vain, for Yahuwah will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

Commandment 4:  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath of Yahuwah your Elohim; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you.  For in six days Yahuwah made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore Yahuwah blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.

Commandment 5:  Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which Yahuwah your Elohim gives you.

Commandment 6:  You shall not murder.

Commandment 7:  You shall not commit adultery.

Commandment 8:  You shall not steal.

Commandment 9:  You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

Commandment 10:  You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Perhaps the first thing that stands out about the Ten Commandments (with the sacred name restored) is how many times Elohim has placed his personal, sacred name into these commandments.  By my count, in the first five commandments, Elohim is called by his personal sacred name no less than 8 (eight) times!  Why does Elohim have his personal name stamped all over the Ten Commandments?  Could it be to drive home the point that they are not Moses’ commandments?  Nor are they Israel’s commandments.  They are, in fact, Elohim’s own commandments.  They are personal to Him; thus, He places His own personal name on them.  They express Elohim’s will for His people.  And the numerous mentions of Yah’s sacred name in the commandments also implies that, just as Yahuwah is unchanging, so His word and His will for His people are likewise unchanging.

Secondly, let’s also keep in mind the structure of the Ten Commandments.  The greatest commandment of all, according to Yahusha of Nazareth, is to love Yahuwah your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength.  And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourselfNote again that the first four commandments correspond to the great commandment to love Yahuwah.  And the final six commands correspond to the command to love your neighbor as yourself.

What I have found, and experienced through these past ten years while living with many hardships, it that today’s world of Christianity not only know not love towards who their lips claim to love – but are extremely selfish with greed prior to actually loving others with compassion.

Let’s examine the breaking of the Ten Commandments in Revelation.  In the section that follows, we will look at how the first four commandments, which govern our worship and respect for Elohim, are portrayed as being broken in the book of Revelation.  But first, let’s consider how Revelation describes the breaking of the final six commands, which correspond to how we treat one another.

It is important to note that not all of the final six commandments are explicitly expressed among the sins of earth’s inhabitants in Revelation.  There is a much greater emphasis on the breaking of the first four commandments, because the lines have been drawn and earth dwellers are being brought to decide who they will worship.  Thus, the barometer for measuring and determining who is worshipping Yahuwah is the keeping of the first four commandments.  Nevertheless, Revelation portrays most people as breaking the commandments which govern how to love one another.

To the congregation of  Pergamum, Yahuwah says,

But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit acts of immorality. (2:14)

Here, Elohim’s people are involved in acts of idolatry and adultery, the breaking of the second and seventh commandments.  No doubt that today’s churches are full of people who marry, divorce and remarry again – as if this were acceptable with Yahuwah.  No.  Yahuwah hates divorce! (see Malachi 2:16, NAS  “For I hate divorce,” says Yahuwah, the Elohim of Israel, “and him who covers his garment with wrong,” says Yahuwah of hosts.)  But the people who fill our church pews every Sunday don’t seem to mind it so much!

The breaking of the second, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth commandments are described as follows:

The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts. (9:20,21)

But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers [1John 3:15] and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (21:8)

and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (21:27)

Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying. (22:15) [1John 4:19-21]

Liars, idolaters, immoral persons, murderers and thieves are all rebuked and then condemned for their acts which break these commandments of Elohim.  But how could Elohim judge the people by these standards if the Ten Commandments are no longer valid?  Have the commandments been nailed to the tree?  If so, then Elohim surely would not impugn his people for breaking them, would he?  But we see over and over in Revelation how Elohim is angry with the inhabitants of the earth, including his own people, because they continue to rebel against him and break these commandments.

However, the people whom Elohim praises in Revelation are those who keep His Commandments!

These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. (14:4)

And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless. (14:5)

And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. (20:12)

and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (21:27)

If we take these verses at face value, we come to the conclusion that Elohim places much value on the obedience to his Ten Commandments.  Those who obey them find eternal life.  Those who refuse to repent of their habit of breaking them find judgment and condemnation.

Worship of Elohim in Revelation

Next, let’s consider what the book of Revelation says about the breaking of the first Four Commandments in the last days.  These four commandments are a summary of the laws regulating fellowship with and worship of our Maker.  How we respond to these four commandments is a window into our relationship with Yahuwah because these Four Commandments define and clarify what worship of Him in truth is.  One of the significant threads of the Revelation is that of choosing whom you will worship.  Will you remain loyal to Yahuwah, the maker of heaven and earth?  Or will you worship the Beast and the false prophet?  Your choice about what you do with the first Four Commandments of Elohim are a primary indicator of whom you choose to worship.  These four commands are like a barometer measuring our allegiance to the Creator of heaven and earth.

The theme of Yah’s call to worship Him according to the regulations as revealed in the first four of the Ten Commandments is a major theme of Revelation.  But, unfortunately, most commentators have completed missed this point.  The reason that most Christian theologians and Bible teachers and preachers have missed this point is because they don’t really believe that the first Four Commandments are relevant today.  They would be the first to admit that the last Six Commandments are applicable in the Christian Church, but they tend to explain away the applicability of a literal obedience to the first Four.  As such, they don’t practice obedience to these four fundamental commands which regulate spiritual worship.  Neither do they teach obedience to the first Four Commandments as truth for today.

But Yahuwah Elohim regards the keeping of the first four commandments as essential to proper worship of Him.  The breaking of any one of these four commandments by his people constitutes apostasy and rebellion.  Shockingly, the Christian Church of the 21st century is routinely breaking all four of the commandments regulating true worship of the Creator.  It is by their own choice that they blatantly and stubbornly resist Elohim’s will for them in worship by refusing to comply with His wishes to be worshipped in the way that the first four commandments describe.

The First Commandment

Commandment 1: I am Yahuwah your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.  You shall have no other gods before Me.

The first commandment which describes worship of Elohim in truth stipulates that He is to have first place in our lives.  Yahuwah is a jealous Elohim.  He wants us to worship Him as supreme.  And as such, worship of Him must be done the way He dictates, not the way in which we choose to worship Him.  Furthermore, giving Elohim first place includes the setting aside of all other gods.

Yahusha sent his message about the breaking of this command to his people in the city of Ephesus:

But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. (2:4)

In what way did the Ephesians leave their first love, and how has the 21st century Christian Church left its first love?  Let’s see what else the Scriptures have to say.  Therein we will find the answers to these questions.

The First Commandment is further elaborated upon in the Torah, where the concept of setting aside of other gods is expanded and explained:

Yahuwah your Elohim is the one you must fear, him alone you must serve, his is the name by which you must swear. ‘Do not follow other gods, gods of the peoples round you, for Yahuwah your Elohim among you is a jealous Elohim; the wrath of Yahuwah your Elohim would blaze out against you, and he would wipe you off the face of the earth.  Do not put Yahuwah your Elohim to the test as you tested him at Massah.  Keep the commandments of Yahuwah your Elohim, and his instructions and laws which he has laid down for you, and do what Yahuwah regards as right and good…. (Deuteronomy 5:13-18, NJB)

[Has today’s world of Christian’s filled with fruitless selfishness, loving themselves only via actions, and coveting earthly items pleasing to Yahuwah that knows all things about each and every one of the Bible was written for?]

In this text, following other gods is sharply contrasted with keeping “the commandments of Yahuwah your Elohim, and his instructions and laws which he has laid down for you” and with doing “what Yahuwah regards as right and good.”  This clearly implies that to follow other gods is to worship those gods in ways contrary to the commandments of Yahuwah.

The text above also implies that “following other gods” can be defined as attempting to worship Yahuwah in the way that others worship their pagan gods.  Yahuwah expressly forbids such worship of Him.  He hates and rejects attempts to worship Him in the way and manner in which pagans worship their idol gods.  This point is explicitly made in another place in the Torah:

Now, these are the laws and customs which you must keep in the country which Yahuwah, Elohim of your ancestors, is giving you as yours, and which you must observe every day that you live in that country.  You must completely destroy all the places where the nations you dispossess have served their gods, on high mountains, on hills, under any spreading tree; you must tear down their altars, smash their sacred stones, burn their sacred poles, hack to bits the statues of their gods and obliterate their name from that place.  Not so must you behave towards Yahuwah your Elohim. (Deuteronomy 12:1-4, NJB)

Yahuwah does not want worship of Him to have anything to do with the worship of pagan idols.  The places where the other gods were worshiped were to be completely obliterated.  Nothing was to remain of the place or manner of worship of pagan gods.  Thus, worship of Him must be completely void of any hint or semblance of pagan gods.

This point is even made more plainly later on in that same chapter quoted above.  Not just the place, but the very manner in which the pagans worshipped their gods is intolerable before Yahuwah.  He must not be worshipped in the same manner the pagan gods are worshipped:

Faithfully keep and obey all these orders which I am giving you, so that you and your children after you may prosper for ever, doing what is good and right in the eyes of Yahuwah your Elohim.  When Yahuwah your Elohim has annihilated the nations confronting you, whom you are going to dispossess, and when you have dispossessed them and made your home in their country, beware of being entrapped into copying them, after they have been destroyed to make way for you, and do not enquire about their gods, saying, “How did these nations worship their gods? I am going to do the same too.”  This is not the way to treat Yahuwah your Elohim. For in honour of their gods they have done everything detestable that Yahuwah hates; yes, in honour of their gods, they even burn their own sons and daughters as sacrifices!’ (Deuteronomy 12:28-31, NJB)

The manner in which we worship Yahuwah is very important.  We are not to copy the pagans in the way they worship.  We are not to inquire into the way they worship.  Everything about the way they worship their idols is detestable to Elohim.  True worship of Yahuwah can never be after the manner of the worship of the pagans.

So, the book of Revelation describes the worship of the beast which, like the passages above imply, is very different from the true worship of Yahuwah:

I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” (13:3,4, NJB)

In what way does the world now worship the beast, and how is the Christian Church presently worshipping the beast?  Granted, the system which is called “the Beast” in Revelation is not currently in its final form.  But we can look at the world and the present state of the Christian Church and we can see the Beast system and the Harlot taking shape in the Church.

We have already identified the Beast and the Woman riding the Beast.  It is the institution which has its home base in Rome.  The Roman Catholic Church and her daughters, the Protestant Churches, constitute the “Woman.”  They, along with the rest of the world, are worshipping after the manner of the Beast.  How is this possible?  How can we make such a claim?  Precisely by applying the truths about worship which we have just discovered above.

Yahuwah is not being worshipped “in spirit and in truth” when people who call themselves by His name practice worship of Him the way the pagans worship their gods.  The entire Christian world – Roman Catholics and Protestants, alike – worship Elohim in a manner which is detestable to Him.  The vast majority of the entire Christian world worships Elohim on Sunday, the venerable day of the Sun, like the pagans worship their gods, in stark contrast to the manner in which He has expressly commanded His people to worship.  At creation, Elohim established the Sabbath day, and sanctified it as the day He is to be worshipped.  But the whole Christian world rejects this way of worshipping Him and wants to worship Him on Sunday instead – which is the time and manner that the pagans worshipped their idol gods

And, the entire Christian world – Roman Catholics and Protestants, alike – celebrate the birthday of Jesus in a manner contrary to how Yahuwah has expressly commanded in His word.  They – along with the rest of misled Christianity and more scattered worldwide – celebrate the birth of Christ on the 25th of December, which is the birthday of pagan Nimrod and the birthday of the invincible Sun and the birthday of numerous other pagan deities.  This kind of worship is completely detestable to Elohim.  He hates it.  And He rejects it.  Why won’t the Christian world celebrate the incarnation (birth of Christ) on the anniversary of when it actually happened?  In the fall of the year at the time of the Festival of Tabernacles, which Elohim commanded to be the appointed time and manner to worship the Living Elohim, is when Yahusha the Messiah was born.

And, the entire Christian world – Roman Catholics and Protestants, alike – commemorate the death and resurrection of Christ at a time and in a manner which is detestable to Elohim.  The Christian Church and the entire world with them, celebrate Easter, even though everyone knows this is the pagan celebration of Ishtar, the pagan goddess of fertility, whose origins are ancient Babylon.  And Elohim abhors this “worship” of Him, too.  Yahusha the Savior told his disciples to remember His death at the time of the eating of the Unleavened Bread and the wine – a celebration of Yahuwah’s Passover which He shared with His disciples.  Passover is the appointed time and manner which Yahuwah has established for His people to remember and worship Him.

It’s no wonder that Yahuwah describes the institution which claims to house his people in the last days an Harlot!  The Christian Church truly has played the harlot by attempting to worship the living Elohim by practicing many detestable pagan practices year after year after year – and claiming that they are doing it for Him!  Thus, the Christian Church is guilty of practicing the breaking of the First Commandment continually before Elohim.

The Second Commandment

But, there’s more.  The Christian Church is also guilty of breaking the Second Commandment in the book of Revelation and in our day.

Commandment 2:  You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.  You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, Yahuwah your Elohim, am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing loving kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

While the First Commandment expressly forbids the worshipping of anyone or anything other than Elohim, the Second Commandment expressly forbids the manufacture of objects or images of any kind to be used in worship.  These two commands are closely linked.  Yet they are distinct.

In Revelation we find worship of two different entities.  There is the true worship of Elohim, and there is the worship of the Beast.  The call of Elohim is for His people to come out of Babylon and worship Him, but most people are worshipping the image to the Beast:

And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. (13:14-15, NAS)

So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and it became a loathsome and malignant sore on the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image. (16:2, NAS)

This worshipping of the image of the Beast is clearly a reference to worship in a way contrary to the Commandments of Elohim.  Worshipping the image of the Beast is simply breaking the Second Commandment, which forbids worship of manufactured objects or images.  Such worship which is contrary to the Commandments of Elohim indicates an allegiance to the Beast system.  But worship of the Living Elohim is always done in compliance with His Ten Commandments:

Elohim warns mankind not to worship in ways contrary to his commandments.  He states the consequences of breaking the Second Commandment:

Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of Elohim, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. (14:9,10, NAS)

So, those who worship the image of the Beast are those who will be lost to eternity.

[As if they never were as back to the dust they came from – and I speak those words because our Father Elohim of love cannot be a God of eternal torture as most religions believe and teach their blinded congregations]

[“For as you [Edom] have drunk upon the mountain of My holiness [desecrating it in the wild revelry of the destroyers], so shall all the nations drink continually [in turn, of My wrath]; yes, they shall drink, talk foolishly, and swallow down [the full measure of punishment] and they shall be [destroyed] as though they had not been. Obadiah 16 (KJV)] – Resurrected or not is another subject found in my many links at end just as eternal hell fire I do not believe in.

But Elohim’s faithful ones are identified as those who have not worshipped the image of the Beast, because they know better than to be worshipping images.

And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Yahusha and because of the word of Elohim, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. (20:4, NAS) [firstfruits being few of the many]

But how is the Christian Church today breaking the second commandment?  Have they “made an image to the Beast” and “worshipped his image”?  Indeed they have!  But first, a little history….  The ancient Babylonians began the mother\child cult worship which is still alive and well today.  Nimrod of the Bible was the founder of this false religion.  He is known as Ninus in historical documentation.  Scripture says that Nimrod “was a mighty hunter before Yahuwah” (Genesis 10:9, Mine)  The Histori Romani Scriptorium states that. . .

Ninus strengthened the greatness of his acquired dominion by continued possession. Having subdued, therefore, his neighbors, when, by an accession of forces, being still further strengthened, he went forth against other tribes, and every new victory paved the way for another, he subdued all the peoples of the east.

Thus, Nimrod was feared in his day.  The city he built was named after him.  Nineveh means “the habitation of Ninus.”

Semiramis was married to Ninus (the Nimrod of the Bible).  After Nimrod died, Semiramis continued the pagan worship he had inspired and declared that Ninus had become the Sun god and was to be worshipped.  She had an illegitimate son and named him Tammuz.  To cover her adultery, she claimed that Tammuz was supernaturally conceived and that Tammuz was actually the reincarnated Ninus.  This Tammuz is the same one spoken of by the prophet Jeremiah, who sees women in the temple of Yahuwah facing east and weeping for Tammuz.  The pagan practices begun in ancient Babylon by Nimrod had still been practiced by the Israelites in Jeremiah’s day!

Thus, the Babylonian counterfeit religion featured the mother, Semiramis, and her son who was also her reincarnated husband.  Thus, her son was both from his father and he was the father (cf. John 1:1 where the Word was with Elohim and the Word was Elohim )!!  This counterfeit of the relationship between the true heavenly Father and His Son is both clever and perverse.

This Babylonian mother-child cult worship was mimicked in all the major cultures of the world, and thus found its way through history all the way to Jeremiah’s day and beyond.  In Egypt, the mother and child were known as Isis and Osiris.  In India, as Isi and Iswara.  In Asia, as Cybele and Deoius.  In ancient Rome as Fortuna and Jupiter.  In Greece, as Ceres and Plutus.  Even in Tibet, China and Japan, the mother and child have their counterpart as Shing Moo and her son, and they too are depicted as a mother with a child in her arms with a ring of glory around her – just as the Roman Catholics depict Mary and the infant Jesus!

In Persia and afterward in Rome, Mithraism was the renamed Babylonian mother-child worship.  Just as Ninus (Nimrod) was the sun god of the Babylonians, Mithras was the sun god of the Persian Empire, whose rebirth (birthday) was celebrated at the winter solstice around December 25th.  Like the mother-child religions of the other cultures which were copied and renamed from the Babylonian mother-child cult, Mithraism had its mother and child:

Mithras was born of Anahita, an immaculate virgin mother once worshipped as a fertility goddess before the hierarchical reformation. Anahita was said to have conceived the Saviour from the seed of Zarathustra preserved in the waters of Lake Hamun in the Persian province of Sistan. Mithra’s ascension to heaven was said to have occurred in 208 B.C., 64 years after his birth. This birth took place in a cave or grotto, where shepherds attended him and regaled him with gifts, at the winter solstice. (Payam Nabaraz, Mithras and Mithraism, http://www.taivaansusi.net/historia/mithraism.html)

The religion of Mithraism outlasted the Persian Empire and was adopted by the Roman Empire as the dominant faith of the Romans.  Mithraism remained in place until the fourth century of the common era when it “mysteriously” disappeared – about the same time that Christianity was declared by Constantine to be the new official religion of the Roman Empire.  But it didn’t really disappear.  You see, Mithraism merely got renamed.  It came to be called Christianity, with Mary and Jesus as the mother and child!

The apostle Shaul (Paul) warns his readers about worshipping a different Jesus other than the one he proclaimed:

For if someone comes to you and preaches a Yahusha other than the Yahusha we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. (2 Corinthians 11:4, NIV)

Who might Shaul have been speaking of?  Was there actually another “Jesus” who was the object of worship in the first century of the common era?  Indeed there was.  He was also known as Mithras, and the pictures of him are identical to the images which purport to depict Yahusha of Nazareth!

Now, getting back to the breaking of the 2nd Commandment….  How is the Christian Church breaking the commandment which forbids the manufacture and adoration (worship) of idols and images?  During the amalgamation of Mithraism and the biblical faith, Christianity accepted many of the worship practices of Mithraism, which are still present in the church today.  Even the images of Christianity are the same images found in Mithraism and in ancient Babylon.

The Roman Catholic Church features statues and images of saints in their worship, and these statues line the walls of their churches.  The most popular of these statues and images is that of the virgin Mary, who is usually depicted with the child in her arms.  Catholics everywhere have these statues and images in their churches, in their yards and in their homes.  Protestants have their version of these images.  They have “pictures of Jesus” in their churches and in their homes.  But the picture of “Jesus” is usually one of a Jesus that fits into their culture.  The Caucasians depict a light-skinned Jesus.  The Blacks display a black-skinned Jesus.  Hispanics portray Jesus as an Hispanic.  American Indians have pictures of an “Indian Jesus.”  And so on….  Sadly, Christian people want to make Jesus in their own image – which insults the Creator.  He rebuffs this kind of activity:

Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal Elohim for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. (Romans 1:22,23, NAS)

It is wrong to have statues and images of Jesus and of Mary or of any other man or animal.  Yet many Christians have these images anyway – to adore them and to “bring us closer to God.”  Many such images sit in the yard of the worshipper to “bring good luck.”  But Yahuwah does not permit this kind of worship of Him:

Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it. I am the Yahuwah your Elohim. (Leviticus 26:1, NIV with Hebrew names restored, emphasis mine)

Not only is it wrong to have these images, but the images they adore are not even images of people in the Bible!  They are replicas of the worship of Tammuz, Semiramis, Nimrod, Mithras, Ra and the like.  The statues and images of the mother and child are NOT Mary and Yahusha!  They are Semiramis and Tammuz.  The images depicting the mother and the child, which are usually thought to be Mary and Yahusha, are actually images depicting Semiramis and Tammuz, the reincarnated the sun god.  Semiramis received the title “mother of god” and “queen of heaven” – titles which, as we all know, are attached to Mary, the Virgin mother of Yahusha!

On some of the statues and images of saints and especially of the Virgin Mother and child is a halo which encircles the head.  Christians believe that this is a depiction of the glory of Elohim.  But it is not.  It is called a nimbus and it encircles the head of the Sun god and of worshippers of the Sun god.  The nimbus, or radiant light, represents the radiating light of the sun.

The nimbus is found on many images and statues of the sun god of ancient times.  And, many Catholic images, statues and pictures of Jesus, Mary and the other saints depict that person with a “glow” around his or her head.  Again, this is NOT the glory of Elohim being depicted, as Christians are led to believe.  It is the radiating light of the SUN god of Babylonian origin.

Pictures and images of Jesus which are found in the churches and homes of Catholic and Protestant Christians often feature this nimbus around his head.  Furthermore, they usually do not depict him the way he really appeared as he walked through the Promised land.  The typical Torah-observant Jew of his day (and of our day, for that matter) is one who is wearing a four cornered garment with tassels (tzit-tzit) hanging from the four corners.  The images of Jesus which are so popular in Christian churches never portray him in this Torah-observant manner.  This is probably due to the utter disdain most Christians have for the Torah.  Anyway, Jesus is usually depicted as wearing a long white robe without tzit-tzit (tassles) at the four corners of his garment, which is clearly taught by the Torah, which we know he observed perfectly!

The pictures and images used by Christians of all denominations to “adore,” “worship,” or merely “remind them of Jesus” is a present evidence that the people who congregate in Christian churches are guilty of breaking the second commandment.  For Elohim clearly forbids any manufactured statues, idols, depictions or images to be used in the true worship of Him.  And given that many of those images and statues used by Christians in their worship or adoration of Jesus, Mary and the saints are replicas of images, statues and idols used in ancient Babylon and in many other pagan worship systems is the evidence that the Christian Church has, indeed, been guilty of worshipping the Beast.  For, in worshipping Elohim by using the images, figures and statues made popular in the modern day Christian religion, Christians have been breaking Elohim’s second commandment and have been unwittingly worshipping “the Beast and his image” (cf. Revelation 14:9).

The Third Commandment

Furthermore, the Christian Church is guilty of constantly breaking the Third Commandment.  They do this as a matter of regular practice and they don’t even realize it!

Commandment 3:  You shall not take the name of Yahuwah your Elohim in vain, for Yahuwah will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

The New International Version renders the third commandment in this way:

You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name. (Exodus 20:7)

Most other English Bible translations render the verse much like the NIV has – with disdain and disrespect for the actual name of Elohim.

Note carefully the stark difference in how the Bible versions translate the name of Elohim.  The sacred name versions, including the one above, render Elohim’s name “Yahuwah” or the like.  However, most English Bible translations render Elohim’s sacred name “the LORD.”  Therein is the problem.  Elohim’s sacred, personal name is Yahuwah, not “the LORD.”  Even in the very verse in which Elohim expressly forbids misuse of His sacred name, translators have misused it!

The Christian Church, from very early in her history, has adopted the same doctrine and practice as the Jews in regard to Elohim’s sacred name.  The Creator placed his sacred name into the Hebrew Scriptures over 6000 times, because he wants to be identified and known by his unique, personal name Yahuwah.  Yet the Jews and now the Christians have covered up, hidden and buried His sacred name and have placed a substitute designation in its place!  And, ironically, this is exactly what Elohim said NOT to do in the Third Commandment.

Elohim expressed to Moses that his personal name, Yahuwah, is the name by which he is to be called by all generations of people:

Elohim also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘Yahuwah, the Elohim of your fathers– the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac and the Elohim of Jacob– has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation. (Exodus 3:15, NIV with some Hebrew names restored)

Yet, the Jews, after the time of the persecution by Antiochus Epiphanies, decided that the best way to protect the sacred name from misuse would be to forbid its use!!  And the Christian Church leaders and theologians have concurred with this sincere, but misguided, attempt to “honor” Elohim’s sacred name.

Elohim has made it abundantly clear that He wants all people to know and (properly) use His sacred name, Yahuwah.  Most of his mighty miracles were done with the expressed purpose of bringing attention to His name:

They will know that I am Yahuwah their Elohim, who brought them out of Egypt so that I might dwell among them. I am Yahuwah their Elohim. (Exodus 29:46, NIV with sacred name restored)

Therefore my people will know my name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I.” (Isaiah 52:6, NIV)

Elohim fights for his people and routs the enemy in order to make everyone see that he is Yahuwah.

I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.  I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh; they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine. Then all mankind will know that I, Yahuwah, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” (Isaiah 49:25-26, NIV, with sacred name restored)

The prophet Ezekiel reiterates dozens of times the phrase, “they will know that I am Yahuwah.”

And they will know that I am Yahuwah, when their people lie slain among their idols around their altars, on every high hill and on all the mountaintops, under every spreading tree and every leafy oak– places where they offered fragrant incense to all their idols. And I will stretch out my hand against them and make the land a desolate waste from the desert to Diblah–wherever they live. Then they will know that I am Yahuwah. (Ezekiel 6:13, 14, NIV, with sacred name restored)

While the Scriptures are numerous which express Elohim’s thoughts that He wants his personal name to be known by all the world, most Christians, who claim to know him, don’t even know his personal name.  We have been fed a lie for centuries by our fathers, who have told us through their translations that “the LORD” is his name.  And most Christians have not given it another thought.  Jeremiah speaks of this lie which he wants to straighten out:

Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.  Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?  Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is Yahuwah. (Yirmyahu 16:19-21, KJV version with sacred name restored)

The designation, “the LORD,” is a substitution for Elohim’s personal name, which must be repugnant to Him.  The Third Commandment stipulates that his personal name Yahuwah is not to be “used in vain” or “taken lightly” or “emptied” or “misused.”  And yet, isn’t this precisely what we do when we replace his name with another designation.  We do, in fact, empty his name when we remove it and replace it with “the LORD.”

For the Jew in Antiochus’ time, and up to and beyond the time of Yahusha’s life on earth, merely speaking the sacred name was considered blasphemy and was punishable by death. (For the details of this, see About God’s Holy Name)  Similarly, the book of Revelation foresees men in the last days blaspheming Elohim and His holy name:

And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against Elohim, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven. (13:6)

Their punishment is also described:

Men were scorched with fierce heat; and they blasphemed the name of Elohim who has the power over these plagues, and they did not repent so as to give Him glory. (16:9)

But those who know and regard His name and receive the reward given by Elohim are figuratively pictured as having the sacred name written on their foreheads:

Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. (14:1)

There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of Elohim and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. (22:3, 4)

[https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/ZOXmRb/the-true-pronunciation-of-the-sacred-name] – Why I use Yehovah rather than Yahuwah. Proverbs 3:6

This symbolic representation of Elohim’s people having his sacred name Yahuwah written on their foreheads calls to mind, in contrast, those who worship the Beast:  Worshippers of the Beast are seen as blaspheming Elohim’s name (breaking the third commandment) and as having the Beast’s name on their foreheads:

He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17, NIV)

[https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/09/04/the-beasts-of-revelation-and-daniel/]

Evidently, this subtle contrast between the worshippers of Yahuwah, who have His name on their foreheads, with the worshippers of the Beast, who have the mark or name of the Beast on their foreheads, is meant to underline the important of obedience to Elohim’s Third Commandment.  Indeed, worshipping Him and honoring His sacred name go hand in hand:

“Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy; For ALL THE NATIONS WILL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOU, FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED.” (15:4)

Those who worship Him in truth will glorify His name by properly using it!

The Fourth Commandment

As the reader might have guessed by now, we are presently going to offer evidence from Revelation that the Fourth Commandment is also being continuously broken by the Christian Church along with all who worship the Beast.

Commandment 4:  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath of Yahuwah your Elohim; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you.  For in six days Yahuwah made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore Yahuwah blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.

The proof of this one is simple.  On what day of the week do most Christians worship the living Elohim?  Do they not worship on Sunday, the first day of the week?  Indeed, the Sabbath day of the Scriptures has become just another work day in the eyes of the Christian churches in the world today.  And Elohim’s sacred day is dishonored every week.  Christianity has not remembered the Sabbath day to keep it holy, as the Fourth Commandment directs.  To be sure, they utterly forget, ignore and violate the Fourth Commandment.

The Christian Church mistakenly believes that the Sabbath has been done away with.  But several prophesies of the book of Revelation suggest, hint and imply that obedience to the seventh day Sabbath is an important characteristic of Elohim’s remnant in the last days.  Someone may object: if the Sabbath is so important to Elohim then why doesn’t the book of Revelation just plainly say it?  To answer this we must refer back to what Yahusha once said to his disciples when they asked him why he spoke to the people in parables:

The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”  He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.  Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.  This is why I speak to them in parables: Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.  In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.  For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ (Matthew 13:10-15, NIV)

Yahusha spoke to the crowds in parables so that those who did not believe would not be able to understand.  Only those who were intimately familiar with the Torah and the Prophets because of their personal interest in the living Elohim would be able to understand.

[unless their selfish greed keeps them separated from who their lips claim to love as written in too much scripture to even share which is totally ignored by most all believers in word only being everywhere on this earth soon to be in the worst timesoftrouble ever before on this globe.]

This same principle can (and should) be applied to the prophesies of Revelation.  Much of what is written about in Revelation is done so in figures of speech, parables, “hidden” illustrations and allusions to Scriptures, which, if the reader is not familiar with, he will completely, miss the point and misinterpret what is being communicated.  This is so that most people will NOT understand it.  But, for those who are living the Torah, [with loving others included] the Prophets and the Scriptures, the message of Revelation will become clear.

The Fourth Commandment calls for remembering the Sabbath day because Elohim established the Sabbath rest at creation for the benefit of ALL mankind (not just for the “Old Testament” Jews).  And in the issuing of the Sabbath commandment in Shemot (Exodus) 20, Yahuwah identifies himself as the one who “made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them.”  This reference calls to mind the fact that the Sabbath was instituted by the Creator at creation.  For this reason, the Sabbath commandment points to creation as its source and to the Creator as its authority.  And obedience to the Sabbath commandment uniquely identifies those who wish to serve and worship the Creator.

This phrase which identifies the Creator – the one who “made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them” – is echoed in several other Scriptures which make the point that Yahuwah is the Creator of the universe:

May you be blessed by Yahuwah, the Maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 115:15, NIV with sacred name restored)

Blessed is he whose help is the Elohim of Jacob, whose hope is in Yahuwah his Elohim, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them — Yahuwah, who remains faithful forever. (Psalm 146:5, 6, NIV, with Hebrew names restored)

And in the Brit Hadashah, the apostle Shaul identifies Yahusha as the one who was with the Father during creation:

He is the image of the invisible Elohim, the firstborn over all creation.  For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. (Colossians 1:15-16, NIV)

Things in heaven and on earth” brings to remembrance the way the Creator is identified in the Sabbath commandment as the one who “made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them.”  Therefore, the phrase – “made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them” – is associated with the Sabbath day and the Lord of the Sabbath.

So, when we come to the book of Revelation, it is natural for the writer to associate this phrase with the Sabbath:

Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, WHO CREATED HEAVEN AND THE THINGS IN IT, AND THE EARTH AND THE THINGS IN IT, AND THE SEA AND THE THINGS IN IT, that there will be delay no longer, but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of Elohim is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets. (10:5-7)

This hint at the Sabbath commandment may appear, at this point, to be merely coincidental until we note that the phrase, “who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters,” is the one the writer of Revelation choose to utilize later on in his invitation to all people of the last days to worship Elohim:

And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; and he said with a loud voice, “Fear Elohim, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters.” (14:6,7)

This phrase is intended to bring the understanding reader to a remembrance of the Sabbath commandment.  Worship of the one who made heaven, earth and sea is textually linked to Sabbath worship.  So, the proper worship of Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters is grounded in the remembering of the Sabbath day which the Creator so instituted at creation.

This conclusion is confirmed and supported a few verses later in this same call to worship, where worship of the Creator is associated with the term “rest”:

Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of Elohim, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.” And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”  Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of Elohim and their faith in Yahusha.  And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, “Write, ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!'” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “so that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow with them.  (14:9-13)

Here the worshippers of the Beast have no “rest,” because they have refused to obey Yah’s call to worship Him on the Sabbath day, which is the day He gives rest to His obedient people.  But those saints who keep the commandments of Elohim (and have faith in Yahusha) will rest from their labors.  The people of Elohim have rest because they join the Creator in His rest on the seventh day, in obedience to His commandments!

[Where in the commandments is the Christian greed that I have experienced for 10 years acceptable to Yah?]

The juxtaposition of the terms “rest” and “keep the commandments” in relationship to the call to worship Yahuwah, the “Creator of heaven and earth and the sea and all that is in them” is no coincidence.  How much plainer could the writer of Revelation made it for the Torah-observant reader while still obscuring its meaning from the unbelievers?  It is already nearly obvious that he is referring to obedience to the Fourth Commandment which promises rest to those who worship Elohim – the Creator of heaven, earth and sea and all that is in them.

The 21st century Christian Church does not rest on the seventh day, nor do they worship the Creator according to the simple parameters of the Fourth Commandment.  And as such, they do not find Yahuwah’s promised rest.  But the call to come out of Babylon is still being sounded.  There’s still time to repent and believe the good news!

Conclusion

Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth is the modern day pagan religious system which is propagating the Babylonian system of worship.  And who is the modern day equivalent of ancient Babylon, out of whom Elohim is calling his people?  It is the city of Rome and the authority which Rome’s religious institution has exercised over men.  And who is the harlot?  No surprise here: it’s the whole Christian church – Catholic and Protestant – all who claim the name of Jesus and worship him according to the customs, traditions and practices of ancient pagan Babylon.

The Christian Church of our day is like the ostrich depicted in the background graphic of this web page.  Christians have voluntarily buried their heads in the sand.  They intuitively know where their own worship practices and customs come from.  They know the true roots and origin of Christmas and Easter.  They know that the Scriptures teach that the seventh day of the week is the Sabbath of Yahuwah, the Maker of heaven and earth.  And they can easily find out that Sunday is not, by any stretch of the imagination, the “Christian Sabbath.”  Yet they choose to ignore the clear evidence of Scripture and history, and worship Elohim in a way which He has plainly declared is an abomination to Him.  He rejects artificial and man made attempts to worship Him contrary to his revelation.

Since the time of the writing of the early portions of Scriptures, Yahuwah has been calling out a people for himself, [John 15:18-21] from among the nations and from among the abominable practices of the race of mankind standing in rebellion against his ways.  That call to “come out of her, my people” is still ringing out today.  Yahuwah wants to bring a holy people into his kingdom of righteousness with Messiah Yahusha as the King.  But we must respond to him now.  We must repent of the lies told to us by our fathers and forefathers, and return to living and obeying his Torah with all our heart, soul and strength.  If we are sincere about serving and following Yahusha of Nazareth, then we must have nothing to do with the ways of ancient pagan traditions given birth in ancient Babylon, and which are still being propagated and practiced in the traditional customs of nearly all Christian churches today.

“Come out of her, my people,” He begs.  Choose Yahuwah and serve him alone. [without greed being your God]

It was in no way the fault of this girl to be placed, chained, used and abused by sick minds in different ways that our world civilization has become infested with through uncountable ways.

Want more examples to enter your own misled mind as help? and that is because no one can really understand just how deep and misleadingly deceitful the human mind truly is — because it is the mind that controls our thoughts and actions which have placed over 7.5 billion earth dwellers in the very wide gate which leads to their own temporary destruction — rather than Yehovah’s spirit directing the few which have overcome psychological mislead injected into all minds by the prince and power of the air being the God of this entire world regardless of whatever any individual’s own religion or belief may be.

Have you seen good, positive, and uplifting human circumstance through these photos along with government and religious rule worldwide being the cause and effect of everything negative on our planet? Do you think these people chose to be placed in insane asylums, prisons or anywhere left to rot and die in misery?

Below is but a slight touch on just how sickening and brutal human trafficking has become as a multi-billion business which only destroys human lives – just as this world of false religions and corrupted governments.

a-child-bride-cowers-at-h-009Every year an estimated 10 million girls, some as young as seven or eight, become child brides. Child marriage is one of the least-acknowledged forms of modern slavery, yet many girls married in childhood face a life of sexual and domestic servitude, and are highly vulnerable to domestic violence, lack of access to education and health services, and have no economic opportunities or freedom of movement.

You as an another human being can easily read the signs with the whole point being that our entire misled, misused, and abused human race is not where they all choose to be — less the rich, prideful, blind, and greedy scum in high places of authority; and that includes all massive religions as super lying money suckers always wanting more that fools happily give — rather than helping those in need everywhere while being one of many causes for this world of atrocities through human greed.

The saddest truth is that people all across the United States will also become as refugees within a controlled 3rd world nation getting no one to help them in any way. So speaks the Bible that none, no, not one believes according to scriptures not properly taught. Psalms 14:2-3, Job 15:15-16, etc. etc. etc. etc — and so speaks the signs of the times all around a civilization that cannot see their own coming destiny in gruesome ways.

Mexican Drug Cartels also have their own ways of rule, so if you are not one of them, or just in the wrong place at the wrong time — you become nothing more than the dead wrongly tortured, executed, or murdered.

READY FOR SOME EXTREMELY SICK IMAGES OF SO-CALLED WAR WITH TOTALLY DERANGED MINDS THAT ARE A PART OF EVERY CONFLICT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF HUMANITY? 

The Kill Team Photos

More war crime images the Pentagon doesn’t want you to see.

afghanistankillteam6

During the first five months of last year, a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan went on a shooting spree, killing at least four unarmed civilians and mutilating several of the corpses. The “kill team” – members of the 5th Stryker Brigade stationed near Kandahar – took scores of photos chronicling their kills and their time in Afghanistan. Even before the war crimes became public, the Pentagon went to extraordinary measures to suppress the photos, launching a massive effort to find every file and pull the pictures out of circulation before they could touch off a scandal on the scale of Abu Ghraib.

The images – more than 150 of which have been obtained by Rolling Stone – portray a front-line culture among U.S. troops in which killing innocent civilians is seen as a cause for celebration. “Most people within the unit disliked the Afghan people,” one of the soldiers told Army investigators. “Everyone would say they’re savages.”

Many of the photos depict explicit images of violent deaths that have yet to be identified by the Pentagon. Among the soldiers, the collection was treated like a war memento. It was passed from man to man on thumb drives and hard drives, the gruesome images of corpses and war atrocities filed alongside clips of TV shows, UFC fights and films such as Iron Man 2. One soldier kept a complete set, which he made available to anyone who asked.

 On January 15th, 2010, U.S. soldiers in Bravo Company stationed near Kandahar executed an unarmed Afghan boy named Gul Mudin in the village of La Mohammad Kalay. Reports by soldiers at the scene indicate that Mudin was about 15 years old. According to sworn statements, two soldiers – Cpl. Jeremy Morlock and Pfc. Andrew Holmes – staged the killing to make it look like they had been under attack. Ordering the boy to stand still, they crouched behind a mud wall, tossed a grenade at him and opened fire from close range. This photograph shows Mudin’s body lying by the wall where he was killed.

Following the routine Army procedure required after every battlefield death, the soldiers cut off the dead boy’s clothes and stripped him naked to check for identifying tattoos. Here they are shown scanning his iris and fingerprints, using a portable biometric scanner.

In a break with protocol, the soldiers also took photographs of themselves celebrating their kill. In the photos, Morlock grins and gives a thumbs-up sign as he poses with Mudin’s body. Note that the boy’s right pinky finger appears to have been severed. Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs reportedly used a pair of razor-sharp medic’s shears to cut off the finger, which he presented to Holmes as a trophy for killing his first Afghan.

Holmes poses with Mudin’s body. According to a fellow soldier, Holmes took to carrying Mudin’s severed finger with him in a zip-lock bag. “He wanted to keep the finger forever and wanted to dry it out,” one of his friends would later report. “He was proud of his finger.”

afghanistankillteam4

Prior to the murder of Mudin, in November 2009, the soldiers of Bravo Company were dispatched to recover the body of an insurgent who was killed by rockets from a helicopter gunship. As they collected the remains, which appear to be those shown here, one took out a hunting knife and stabbed the corpse. Staff Sgt. Gibbs, who had recently joined the platoon as a squad leader, began playing with a pair of scissors near the dead man’s hands. “I wonder if these can cut off a finger?” Gibbs asked.

afghanistankillteam5

A pistol found at the scene of the helicopter strike. Gibbs routinely collected such weapons and planted them on the bodies of unarmed civilians they killed, in order to frame their victim as enemy combatants. The presence of a “drop weapon” virtually guaranteed that a shooting would be considered a legitimate kill.

Cpl. Jeremy Morlock with the pistol found at the scene. Gibbs was reportedly disappointed that the pistol was turned into military authorities in accordance with the proper protocol, preventing them from using it as a “drop weapon.”

afghanistankillteam7

Before the military found itself short of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, Morlock was the kind of bad-news kid who the Army might have passed on. He grew up not far from Sarah Palin in Wasilla, Alaska; his sister hung out with Bristol, and Morlock played hockey against Track. Back in those days, it seemed like he was constantly in trouble: getting drunk and into fights, driving without a license, leaving the scene of a serious car accident.

afghanistankillteam8

Even after he joined the Army, Morlock continued to get into trouble. In 2009, a month before he deployed to Afghanistan, he was charged with disorderly conduct after burning his wife with a cigarette. After he arrived in Afghanistan, he did any drug he could get his hands on being opium, hash, Ambien, amitriptyline, flexeril, phenergan, codeine, trazodone.

At one point, soldiers in 3rd Platoon talked about throwing candy out of a Stryker vehicle as they drove through a village and shooting the children who came running to pick up the sweets.

Another photo of Afghan children. According to one soldier, members of 3rd Platoon also talked about a scenario in which they “would throw candy out in front and in the rear of the Stryker; the Stryker would then run the children over.”

Gibbs found a working AK-47 with a folding butt stock and two magazines. According to witnesses, Gibbs placed the AK-47 and the magazines in a metal box in one of the Strykers and later used them as “drop weapons” to frame two unarmed civilians the platoon killed as enemy combatants.

afghanistankillteam13

In the process of suppressing the photographs, the Army may also have been trying to keep secret evidence that the killings of civilians went beyond a few men in 3rd Platoon. In this image, the bodies of two Afghan men have been tied together, their hands bound, and placed alongside a road.

afghanistankillteam14

A sign – handwritten on cardboard fashioned from a discarded box of rations – hangs around the dead men’s necks. It reads: TALIBAN ARE DEAD. According to a source in Bravo Company, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the men were killed by soldiers from another platoon, which has not yet been implicated in the scandal. “Those were some innocent farmers that got killed,” the source says. “Their standard operating procedure after killing dudes was to drag them up to the side of the highway.”

afghanistankillteam25

The collection of photos includes several dozen images of unidentified casualties, including this one of a severed head. In many of the photos, it is unclear whether the bodies are civilians or Taliban. It is possible that the unidentified deaths are unrelated to 3rd Platoon, and involved no illegal acts by U.S. soldiers. But taking such photos, let alone sharing them with others, is a clear violation of Army standards.

afghanistankillteam16An unidentified image of severed legs passed around among the members of Bravo Company. Even if such unidentified bodies were enemy combatants rather than innocent civilians, their inclusion in the collection of photos bespeaks a shocking disregard for human life. “We were operating in such bad places and not being able to do anything about it,” Morlock tells Rolling Stone. “I guess that’s why we started taking things into our own hands.”

All wars have been purposely created to benefit those in high places with authoritative power as dictatorship –  thus have never been for the good of our human race in any way whatsoever; therefore all soldiers of all wars or conflicts to this very day have been brainwashed and psychologically led – just some in more inhuman ways than others according to the evil spirits within them. This writing is not for putting down soldiers as individuals, but rather showing how all minds can be made blind as to what and why people do the things they do with this link that shows just how sick and how brutal Dick Cheney purposely was to American soldiers and the people of Iraq.

Human Suffering

child-vulture-sudan

Perhaps the most heartbreaking image ever taken, Kevin Carter’s picture of a starving girl in Sudan, taken in 1993, sparked much controversy.

Carter would commit suicide a year after taking the photo, at the age of 33.

It is unknown if the girl in the image survived.

When it comes right down to all the human suffering through past and present, the photo’s which can be found from different locations worldwide can be so sad, and so graphic, that many would not be able to handle what their eyes have seen – therefore my purpose is to make known that the same, and much much worse is coming upon hundreds of millions leading into billions worldwide; however, those looking to Yehovah from their heart, and through obedience, will be able to endure just as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego chose the fiery furnace over denying Yehovah Elohim in Daniel 3, or as Paul, Job, Jeremiah, Daniel, and all individuals living as spiritually instructed through our Book of Instruction known as the Holy Bible..

How can it be possible to warn our entire human race of what is coming upon them all being over 7.4 billion? According to words in the Bible over two billion don’t believe; it’s impossible. Therefore cannot be done. In fact the gospel truth itself has yet to be made known in this world under the yoke and slavery of human rule.

So when will people learn truth?

100_3477100_3478

Matthew 24:4-13 makes known our nearing 3 1/2 years of wrath and affliction with verse 14 telling when hidden truth will be made known worldwide – followed by another 3 1/2 years known as great tribulation. Would you like to be of those 144,000 spreading the Good News of Yehovah’s coming Kingdom? Or would you feel very satisfied and even blessed through having Yehovah’s mercy (Psalms 33:17-21, Romans 9:15-18 KJV) during these perilous times almost upon the 326,000,000 million in America as written in many verses never taught?

Either way – you can be sealed, or will be protected — but only if you become separated as one called out of this world rather than being deceived as all calling themselves Christian, watchmen or end time messengers spreading the gospel, when in truth all they are doing is spreading their mislead upon billions because of scripture they ignore which tells exactly when that time will actually happen.

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/ljD9ZQ/vital-untaught-truth-in-all-religions-worldwide – Safety with protection and basic needs supplied – if you come out of her as instructed in Revelation 18.

Who is her? America and deception in all religious beliefs regardless of their title. http://yahushua.net/babylon/liberty/

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/12/26/amazingly-precise/ on those called, and those not.

Certainly, we wait with hope for you, O Yahweh,
    as we follow the path of your guiding principles.
        We want to remember you and your name.
With my soul I long for you at night.
    Yes, with my spirit I eagerly look for you.
    When your guiding principles are on earth,
    those who live in the world learn to do what is right.
Although the wicked are shown pity,
    they do not learn to do what is right.
    They do what is wrong in the upright land
        and do not see the majesty of Yahweh.

My people, go to your rooms,
    and shut the doors behind you.
    Hide for a little while until his fury has ended. (few)
Yahweh is going to come out from his dwelling place
    to punish those who live on earth for their sins.
        The earth will uncover the blood shed on it
            and will no longer cover up its dead bodies. (many)  Isaiah 26:9, 20-21  (NOG)

So what is the difference between the few and the many?

Isaiah 59:1-2, Jeremiah 17:9-10, and Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 make known in great depth what is never taught through meaning as written; therefore everything about us revealing who we truly are is written in our hearts where Yehovah looks to see our true person with no words needed. Thus if our book of instruction for His commanded walk is not lived by with nothing ever hid — our iniquities have separated us from whom our lips claim to love.

100_4320100_4328100_43271corinthians-13-001

1 Corinthians 12:17-31, 13:1-3

How many true believers actually look to our eternal Father to rule their hearts which makes them to be as one part of the body with dependence on other parts to properly function? How many believers really care about others when suffering or living in hardship? Why through these past 10 years have I only experienced most all knowing absolutely nothing about their commanded love with deed when possible towards others?

In what you are about to read I will share how and why Yehovah has been shaping my wife and I through these prior 10 years as preparation on how to endure within the worst times of trouble coming upon all humanity just as scripture warns.

Acts 14:22

In other words, even with 27 years of private studies, a 474 page published book, 16 free websites, over 1000 blogs, and much much more concerning worship and becoming not of this world spiritually speaking — I still expect to suffer during these coming years being the worst timesoftrouble ever before on this globe; and even though the Holy Bible warns this world of Christianity, who don’t even know their proper name being Israel that are to be living by every word and walking the walk of the chosen Israelite’s — none, no, not one worldly person according to scripture (Psalms 14:2-3) not understood, believed, or taught can see the suffering coming directly upon them all not only in America, but worldwide: and great sadness for the hundreds of millions into being over a billion that have been misled into believing they will be within the man made rapture, or snatched away from this sick and  dying world when hundreds of millions leading into billions not as good as them have been left behind. What a sick mind Christianity has developed from this world of shepherds Yehovah warns all to beware of in much scripture never taught. Want unsmooth truth from the Bible shepherds will never teach?

Yet I, and the few others called out of this corrupt misleading world can see clearly what has been written, and reason why these things must be through total disassociation while putting no trust in self nor man. Proverbs 3:5-7

My friends [Beloved], do not be surprised at the ‘terrible trouble’ [fiery ordeal; Zech. 13:9; Mal. 3:1–3] which now comes to test you. Do not think that something strange is happening to you. But ·be happy [rejoice] that you are sharing in Christ’s sufferings so that you will ·be happy and full of joy [rejoice exulting/joyously] ·when Yeshua (Christ) comes again in glory [at the revelation of his glory].

Ezekiel 5:1-17

   The third that is left I will ·test with [bring into the] fire,
    ·purifying [refining] them like silver, 
testing them like gold.

Then they will call on ·me [my name], > (http://yahushua.net/name.htm
    and I will answer them.
I will say, ‘These are my people,’
    and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’”  Zechariah 13:9 (EXB)

So who am I and what has made me different? How can I possibly have a spiritual understanding the multitudes have not? (Matthew 13:11, John 15:19)

Below is just a few current photos of the way we live, with many more that can be found in my links supplied.

The parents of my wife now in their 80’s never really have never had much of anything in their entire life, yet always kept their faith; and because of when Mylene, my wife, became so very ill that she could no longer continue teaching in elementary school, we were forced into a transfer making their home ours also to share.

Aside from living these past 10 years within a life of poverty, when I study and view the great suffering upon innocent people worldwide through many ways so gruesome — my wife and I feel blessed even as have nots — while also knowing that what suffering and hardship we have gone through since 2007 has been with purpose for Yehovah’s shaping and molding to prepare us for all the coming affliction which will require deep, strong, and stable roots. . .

Job 8:11:15

Rather than the shallow roots this world of Christianity has so well been showing through their cold hearts with very selfish actions through these past 10 years — my wife and I as of this day don’t even have rice to eat, and no real life; yet we keep our faith knowing our Father YHVH will touch just one heart for our basic needs.

Yeshua the Messiah Was NOT a “Christian”!

The time has arrived for all believers to make their decision between what comes from Yehovah, or what comes from man; and because the worst timesoftrouble ever before on this earth are growing close — there remains no more time to procrastinate.

1-corinthians-2-003I Corinthians 2:13-14

Shocking as it may seem, history and the Bible prove that Yeshua the Messiah was a devout Jew who did not come to abolish the faith of Judaism or the Law of his Father, but to magnify and expand them! Modern day “Christianity” has very little in common with the carpenter’s son from Nazareth, whom they claim as the founder of their “faith”! Yeshua did not teach or observe the major “Christian” holidays of Christmas, Easter, but considered them pagan. He observed the Jewish holy days of Passover, Tabernacles, and Pentecost. Just what did Yeshua the Messiah of Nazareth teach? And why was he violently persecuted by the religious leaders who were in control during his day? What did he really teach about the Laws of YEHOVAH God?

For many months we have wanted to write upon this topic. Bruce Barton calls Yeshua the Messiah the man “nobody knows,” and that seems to be the truth! In his book entitled The Man Nobody Knows, Barton pointed out that the Messiah of the New Testament was very unlike the common conception people have of him. He was not sanctimonious, wimpy, namby-pamby, weak, whining, or effeminate. Not only was he muscular and strong, physically, having worked for years as a carpenter and mason, but he was bold, courageous, and active, even throwing the money changers out of the Temple of YEHOVAH God.

But, Yeshua the Messiah was unlike the common conception of him in many other ways, also. The truth is, he was NOTHING LIKE the modern representation or idea people have of him! Truly, as the apostle Paul warned was beginning to happen 1,900 years ago, the world has embraced “ANOTHER JESUS” — a totally different “Jesus” from the one revealed in Scripture! Paul warned the Corinthian church, “But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough” (II Cor. 11:3-4, NIV).

The Yeshua of modern-day Christianity all too often seems to be one who hated his Father’s law, especially the Sabbath day, and abolished it. He hated the holy days of YEHOVAH God, and abolished them. He came preaching a gospel which virtually abolished the entire Old Testament, the Laws of YEHOVAH God, and ridiculed and condemned all the religious leaders of the Jews. But is this portrait of Yeshua the Messiah accurate?

Who is the “real Jesus”?

Will the Real Yeshua, Please Stand Up?

The truth is, the “Jesus” just described is 180% opposite from the Yeshua of the Scriptures! He is a FALSE YESHUA, a false “god,” which was foisted upon the world by a devious and cunning Satan, who has indeed deceived the “whole world” (Rev. 12:9).

The Yeshua of the New Testament did not hate his Father’s Law. In fact, to clarify this very point, he told his disciples in no uncertain terms: “Do NOT think that I have come to ABOLISH THE LAW or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to FULFILL them” — that is, to fill them to the full, to bring to them their full spiritual scope and intent! (Matt. 5:17). Yeshua went on, explaining: “I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished” (verse 18).

Has that day come yet? Has everything been accomplished? Have the new heavens and new earth appeared yet (Rev. 21:1)? Has the heavenly Jerusalem already come down from heaven to the earth (Rev. 21:2)? Has Satan already been punished and cast into the lake of fire? (Rev. 20:10.) Has the Great White Throne Judgment occurred already? (Rev. 20:11-12.) Have Yeshua the Messiah and YEHOVAH God the Father already returned and established the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God? (Rev. 10:1-7 and Rev. 19:6, 11-16).

The answer is obvious. Therefore, by Yeshua’s own admission, the LAWS OF YEHOVAH GOD are still in force today! He did not come to abolish the LEAST little law or commandment! Rather, he came to make the law of YEHOVAH God even MORE binding, in spirit, and not just in the letter!

Read Matthew 5, to the very end of the chapter. Notice. Yeshua did not just condemn the act of murder, but he added, “But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment” (verse 22). Yeshua did not merely condemn the act of adultery, but he went much further, saying, “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (verse 28). Although the law of Moses allowed divorce through a “certificate of divorce,” Yeshua tightened and strengthened the divorce law of YEHOVAH God. He said, “But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for MARITAL UNFAITHFULNESS, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery” (verse 32).

Yeshua and the Law

Does this sound as if Yeshua rescinded or abolished the commandments of YEHOVAH God? NOT AT ALL! Rather, he amplified and expanded their meaning, showing us the full spiritual intent of YEHOVAH’s Law. As Isaiah the prophet spoke of him, “It pleased the LORD [through the agency of the Messiah] for the sake of his righteousness to make his law great and glorious” (Isa. 42:21). The Living Bible has this verse, “The LORD [through the agency of the Messiah] has magnified his law and made it truly glorious.” A possible rendering of the original Hebrew of this passage is: “He will enlarge and advance the Torah, and make it expanded.” In other words, Yeshua’s intent was not to abolish or weaken or emasculate the Laws of YEHOVAH God, revealed in the Old Testament, but to expand and magnify them to their full spiritual intent and conclusion — to show their full meaning, purpose, and relevance — to reveal their spiritual and supernatural nature and basis — to show that the commandments lead us by necessity to FAITH in him as the Messiah. We do not earn salvation by works of law, but by Faith in Yeshua the Messiah, who died for our sins and transgression of the Law, and who now gives us his spirit to enable us to fulfill the righteousness of the Law (Acts 2:38; 5:32; Gal. 2:20). The Messiah did not replace the Law of YEHOVAH God with Faith alone, but rather gives us inward Faith, through his spirit, to enable us to observe the holy commandments of YEHOVAH God!

The apostle Paul knew this truth. He wrote to the believers in Rome, “Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we UPHOLD the law” (Rom. 3:31). Not one iota, not one jot or tittle, is abolished from the Law of YEHOVAH God.

But what about offering animal sacrifices, one might ask. Aren’t animal sacrifices abolished? This is a much misunderstood area of Yeshua’s teaching. Protestants and Catholics and many others assume that the entire Law of YEHOVAH God is abolished, and they point to animal sacrifices as an example of that. But what is the truth? Is it so simple as all that? Why are animal sacrifices not done today?

What about the Law of Moses?

When a leper came to Yeshua and asked to be made clean, Yeshua had compassion on him and healed him. At once he was cured. Then Yeshua commanded him, “See that you don’t tell this to anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and OFFER THE SACRIFICES THAT MOSES COMMANDED for your cleansing, as a testimony to them” (Mark 1:40-44). Here was Yeshua’s perfect opportunity to tell the poor man that it wasn’t necessary any more for him to offer sacrifices prescribed in the Law. But he didn’t do it! Why? Because, although those sacrifices did not forgive sin, their performance would be a TESTIMONY to all the people that a wonderful miracle had been accomplished — a marvelous, miraculous HEALING!

At that time the Temple of YEHOVAH God was still standing. The Levitical priesthood was still in operation and functioning. Therefore, the Laws involving the Temple, priesthood, and sacrifices were STILL APPLICABLE and in force!

In 60 A.D., 29 years after the crucifixion of the Messiah, the apostle Paul returned to Jerusalem from his journeys in Europe, preaching the gospel. Upon his return the elders of the Church of YEHOVAH God in Jerusalem welcomed him, and heard his report of the miracles and wonders YEHOVAH had done among the Gentiles (Acts 21:17-19).

Now notice what happened next. “When they heard this, they praised God. Then they said to Paul: ‘You see, brother, how many THOUSANDS of Jews have BELIEVED [the gospel], and ALL OF THEM ARE ZEALOUS FOR THE LAW. They have been informed [or misinformed by persecutors among the Jews who hated Paul] that you teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn away from Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or live according to our customs. What shall we do? They will certainly hear that you have come, so do what we tell you. There are four men with us who have made a VOW. Take these men, join in their purification rites and pay their expenses, so that they can have their heads shaved. Then everyone will know there is NO TRUTH IN THESE REPORTS about you, but that you yourself are living IN OBEDIENCE TO THE LAW” (Acts 21:20-24).

Obviously, it was not wrong to live according to the laws of YEHOVAH God, and even to perform the ceremonies of the ritual law and sacrificial law. Paul, being a Jew, therefore took part in this ceremony. However, it was not needful for Gentiles to do such things as were required in the ceremonial and ritualistic law (verse 25).

“The next day Paul took the men and purified himself along with them. Then he went to the temple to give notice of the date when the days of purification would end and the offering would be made for each of them” (verse 26). This must have been the law of the Nazarite vow which is given in Numbers 6, when a man vows to separate himself to YEHOVAH God for a period of time. During that time, he cannot cut his hair or use a razor, or drink wine or vinegar, grape juice or eat grapes, or drink any other fermented drink. When the period of separation was over, he was to go to the Tent of Meeting, or the Temple. “There he is to present his offering to the LORD: a year-old male lamb without defect for a burnt offering, a year-old ewe lamb without defect for a sin offering, a ram without defect for a fellowship offering, together with their grain offerings and drink offerings, and a basket of bread made without yeast — cakes made of fine flour mixed with oil, and wafers spread with oil” (Num. 6:13-15).

The priest was to present these offerings before the LORD and make the sin offering and burnt offering (verse 16). He was to present the basket of unleavened bread, and to sacrifice the ram for a fellowship offering, together with the grain offering and drink offering (verse 17). Then the Nazarite’s hair, which had not been cut for the duration of the vow, was to be shaved off and put in the fire under the sacrifice of the fellowship offering (v. 18). The priest then was to place in his hands a boiled shoulder of the ram, and a cake and a wafer from the basket (unleavened). “The priest shall then wave them before the LORD as a wave offering; they are holy and belong to the priest, together with the bread that was waved and the thigh that was presented. After that, the Nazarite may drink wine” (Num. 6:20).

If this “law of God” were abolished by Yeshua the Messiah, then WHY did the apostle Paul observe it with four other Church men in Jerusalem 29 years AFTER the crucifixion of the Messiah? Obviously, this ceremony had NOT been abolished in any way whatsoever. If there were a Temple of YEHOVAH God in Jerusalem, today, and a Levitical priesthood, then it would NOT BE WRONG for a true believer in the Messiah to observe this same ritual and ceremony TODAY!

Law Versus Lawlessness

What does this tell us, then, about the true religion that Yeshua the Messiah, proclaimed? What does it tell us about his true gospel, good news, or message? The apostle Paul wrote, “What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what sin was except through the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, ‘Do not covet’ ” (Rom. 7:7). Paul went on, “So then, the law is HOLY, and the commandment is HOLY, RIGHTEOUS and GOOD” (verse 12). He went on to say that YEHOVAH’s Law is spiritual (Rom. 7:14) — and that which is spiritual is eternal. As Paul also wrote, “For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (II Cor. 4:18). If the Laws of YEHOVAH God were all abolished, as some believe, then Yeshua did away with what was clearly holy, righteous, good, and spiritual. How ridiculous!

The sad truth is that the religion which today calls itself “Christian” in the world and which claims the laws of YEHOVAH God are abolished IS NOT TRULY CHRISTIAN AT ALL! It is a PAGAN perversion of the truth of YEHOVAH God. Its origin is not in the Scriptures of the Bible, but in the ancient pagan Mystery religion of ancient Babylon, with its false Messiah, its pagan customs and beliefs, and its hatred of the laws and customs of YEHOVAH God, which have been preserved in part by the Jews only!

That is why we say, in the title of this article, that Yeshua the Messiah was NO CHRISTIAN! He never observed Christmas (see our article, Is Christmas Christian?), which is the pagan celebration of the winter solstice and the birth of the “sun god.” He wasn’t born anywhere near December 25! He never observed Easter Sunday, named after the pagan goddess of sex and fertility, called “EESTER” (phonetic spelling) but spelled Astarte, or Ishtar, by the pagans.

Furthermore, Yeshua the Messiah never once in his entire life observed “Sunday” every consecutive week as a day of rest, nor did he ever command his followers to observe it! Sunday is the pagan day of worship of the SUN GOD! It carries its very meaning in its name. True followers of the Messiah do not worship on the “day of the sun” every consecutive week, but keep the Sabbath according to the lunar calendar as YEHOVAH God commanded, and which can fall on any day of the week! Consecutive Sunday worship stamps people as worshipping the false “god of this world,” Satan (II Cor. 4:4), who has blinded the minds of those who believe not the truth of the Scriptures. Satan comes disguised as an “angel of light,” as Paul wrote.

Those who teach contrary to the Law of YEHOVAH God, which Yeshua upheld, and Paul also taught, are false ministers, serving in false Churches, exploiting the “name” of Yeshua to cover over their pagan roots and origins. Paul writes of them, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve” (II Cor. 11:13-15). For more proof about this incredible deception which has pulled the wool over the eyes of MILLIONS of people who think they worship the Messiah, read our article Is the Law of YEHOVAH God Nailed to the Cross?

The True Teachings of the Messiah

First and foremost, we need to understand that Yeshua the Messiah was a Jew. He was born the son of Mary and Joseph, both of whom were devout Jews. Joseph was a “righteous man” (Matt. 1:19), which means he observed the laws of YEHOVAH God faithfully (see Psalm 119:172). When the magi came to see the Messiah, they asked Herod, “Where is the one who has been born king of the JEWS?” (Matt. 2:2).

Yeshua was brought up in the faith of his fathers, the faith of Joseph and Mary — the teachings of 1st. Century Judaism. The Church which existed in Judea at that time was the “congregation of Israel,” and the teachers of the Church were known as Pharisees. The Sadducees were a small, offshoot cult which numbered some members among the priesthood and the well-to-do. They were politically motivated, and harsh in their teachings. However, the whole nation of Judea followed the teachings of the Pharisees, who created the system of synagogue worship throughout the land. Even the Sadducees feared the Pharisees, because all the multitudes followed them. They preserved the religious faith of Israel, the Scriptures, and the laws of YEHOVAH God, handed down from generation to generation.

There were only three religious “sects” known of in Judea at that time. The third sect was the Essenes, who withdrew from society and lived in communes down by the Dead Sea, in the desert. They developed their own calendar, rejected the priesthood and the Temple worship, and sort of lived unto themselves, as a class of “hermits” with very strict codes and regulations.

The Pharisees, however, were the teachers and scribes of the Law. They were the predominant religious group in Judea. They preserved the religion of Israel, descended from the time of Ezra the scribe. Their very name means the “separated ones.” They preserved the truth of YEHOVAH God during the apostasy of the priesthood and Hellenists during the time of Antiochus Epiphanes. You can read more about them in our article, Who Were the Pharisees?

Since Joseph and Mary lived by the tenets of the religion of their forefathers, they lived by the laws of Judaism. They observed all the holy days of YEHOVAH God, and the true (lunar) Sabbath day. They were devout. After the birth of Yeshua, we read: “When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been completed, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, ‘Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord’), and to OFFER A SACRIFICE in keeping with what is said in the Law of the LORD: ‘a pair of doves or two young pigeons’ ” (Luke 2:22-24).

Another devout Pharisee of that time was Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist. We read, “In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. But of them were UPRIGHT in the sight of God, OBSERVING ALL THE LORD’S COMMANDMENTS AND REGULATIONS BLAMELESSLY” (Luke 1:5-6). These were law-abiding, devout Jews — Pharisees who practiced the religion commonly known as “Judaism.” However, be aware that the “Judaism” of the Messiah’s day was far different to the Judaism practiced today.

Another righteous Jew, or Pharisee, of that time, was “Simeon, who was RIGHTEOUS AND DEVOUT. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the holy spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. Moved by the spirit, he went into the TEMPLE COURTS. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the CUSTOM OF THE LAW REQUIRED, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: ‘Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel’ ” (Luke 2:25-32).

Joseph and Mary observed the Passover festival every year. “Every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. When he was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM” (Luke 2:41-42).

Yeshua and the Pharisaic Leaders of His Time

As Yeshua the Messiah was brought up, therefore, and taught as a youth, he was obviously brought up in the teachings and doctrine of the Pharisees! Very likely he was educated by Rabbis who were of the School of Hillel. We know that his wisdom and knowledge, even when he was 12 years old, astonished the doctors of the Law and Pharisees. When he was twelve, his parents took him to Jerusalem to observe the Passover. When the Feast was over, they returned home, unaware that he was still in Jerusalem. A day after they left, they discovered he was missing, and returned to Jerusalem to find him. “After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers” (Luke 2:41-47).

When Yeshua began his ministry, however, many of the Pharisees did not accept him. Many who were in power and authority in Jerusalem looked upon him as an “outsider,” an interloper, as one who threatened their power and security. They vehemently denounced him. When they saw his miracles, they ridiculed them. When Yeshua healed a demon-possessed man who was both blind and mute, the common people were astonished, and wondered, “Could this be the Son of David?” But the majority of the Pharisees, who by this time had been infiltrated by hypocrites and wicked men, rejected the evidence before their very eyes, and exclaimed, “It is only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons” (Matt. 12:22-23).

In the time of the Messiah, there were two major schools among the Pharisees — the school of Hillel, and the school of Shamai. Many among the school of Shamai were very strict, legalistic, and harsh in judgment. They stressed minutae, and legalism, adding many extra burdensome laws to the Sabbath, for example.

We read of this kind of Pharisee when Matthew records: “Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, ‘Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!’ Jesus replied, ‘And why do you break the COMMAND OF GOD for the sake of your tradition? For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’ But you say that if a man says to his father or mother, ‘Whatever help you might otherwise have received is a gift devoted to God,’ he is not to honor his father with it. Thus you NULLIFY THE WORD OF GOD for the sake of your tradition. You HYPOCRITES! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in VAIN; their teachings are but rules taught by men’ ” (Matt. 15:1-9).

Yeshua had many encounters with these apostate renegades among the Pharisees. By the time his ministry had begun, the Pharisees as a whole had degenerated into a thieving, greedy, conniving bunch of rascals and scoundrels. The majority of them had become wicked and self-righteous, vain and selfish, lusting after praise, honor and glory from men.

A Pharisee Named Gamaliel

One, however, who was not among this apostate group was Gamaliel. He was a “doctor of the Torah,” a grandson of the famous Hillel who had founded the School of Hillel. Gamaliel is mentioned favorably in the New Testament. Luke records that when Peter and John had been brought before the Sanhedrin because of the miracle they had performed in the name of Yeshua, many of the Pharisees present were furious and wanted to put them to death. The apostles had challenged their authority to command them to quit preaching in the name of the Messiah. Peter had said, “We must obey God rather than men!” (Acts 5:29). He then gave a witness that Yeshua, whom they had slain, was the Messiah. This bold witness enraged the apostate, renegade Pharisees who were present. But something happened, to prevent their action.

“But a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law who was honored by ALL the people, stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while. Then he addressed them: ‘Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men….Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin it will fall. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves FIGHTING AGAINST GOD’ ” (Acts 5:34-39). His speech persuaded them to let the apostles go free, after they flogged them.

Who was this Gamaliel? He was a righteous, devout Pharisee. He was the teacher of the apostle Paul. Paul declared, when he was on trial before the Sanhedrin, “I am a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but brought up in this city. Under Gamaliel I was thoroughly trained in the law of our fathers and was just as zealous for God as any of you are today” (Acts 22:3).

Because of his thorough Pharisaic upbringing, Paul later wrote to the Philippians, “If anyone else thinks he has reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the LAW, A PHARISEE; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for LEGALISTIC RIGHTEOUSNESS, FAULTLESS” (Phil. 3:4-6).

This clearly shows that Gamaliel had taught Paul well. Paul had been a very devout Pharisee — just as Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist, and Joseph, the legal father of Yeshua the Messiah, were.

Unger’s Bible Dictionary tells us of Gamaliel:

“The grandson of the great Hillel, and himself a Pharisee and celebrated doctor of the law. His learning was so eminent and his character so revered that he is one of the seven who, among Jewish doctors only, have been honored with the title of ‘Rabban.’ He was called the ‘Beauty of the Law,’ and it is a saying of the Talmud that ‘since Rabban Gamaliel died the glory of the Law has ceased.’ He was a Pharisee, but anecdotes are told of him which show that he was not trammeled by the harrow bigotry of the sect. He rose above the prejudices of his party. Candor and wisdom seem to have been the features of his character….Ecclesiastical tradition makes him become a Christian and be baptised by Peter and Paul, together with his son Gamaliel and with Nicodemus…” (“Gamaliel,” p. 388).

What Yeshua Really Said

Now, with this background in mind, let us examine the words of Yeshua in Matthew, where he encountered some hostile critics among the Pharisees in Jerusalem. In Matthew 22 we read that some Pharisees “went out and laid plans to trap him in his words.” They sent men to flatter him, and then ask him whether it was all right to pay taxes to Caesar or not. They intended to get him in trouble with the Roman authorities, if he said no, and with the people, if he said yes. But Yeshua discerned their motives and replied, “You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? Show me the coin used for paying the tax.” They brought him a coin, and he said, “Whose portrait is this, and whose inscription?” The answered, “Caesar’s.” Yeshua then silenced them, saying, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s” (Matt. 22:15-22).

After this, the Sadducees tried to trip him up also. They didn’t believe in a resurrection from the dead. They taught that this life is all there is, and there is no “afterlife.” They gave Yeshua an example of a man who had been married to seven wives, each of them dying successively. They then asked him which woman would be his wife in the resurrection. Yeshua responded, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. But about the resurrection of the dead — have you not read what God said to you, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living’ ” (verses 29-32).

The Pharisees then tried again, sending someone to ask him which is the greatest commandment of the Law. Yeshua replied quoting the Shema from the Torah. He said: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (verses 34-40).

Then Yeshua confounded the Pharisees by asking them a question, saying “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” They replied, “The Son of David.” Then Yeshua asked them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.” ‘ If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he then be his son?’ ” (verses 41-45). They couldn’t think of a reply (v. 46).

Matthew 23 and “Moses’ Seat”

At this point, we read that Yeshua turned to the crowds, and to his disciples, and said: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees SIT IN MOSE’S SEAT. So you must OBEY THEM and do EVERYTHING they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy loads and put them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. Everything they do is for men to see…” (Matt. 23:1-5).

What is Yeshua saying here? Notice! He is talking to the multitudes and to his disciples about the Pharisees. He acknowledges that as a group, as descendants of the “pious ones,” that the GOOD, devout, sincere Pharisees sat in Moses’ seat — that is, they held authority in the Church, in the religion of Israel, in the promulgation of the Truth and the Law of YEHOVAH God. They exercised authority in the Church, in teaching the laws and commandments of YEHOVAH God, in determining the Temple services and rituals, and in preserving and maintaining the sacred calendar, and setting the dates for the annual Holy Days. When Yeshua said this, he was speaking of the DEVOUT Pharisees — such as Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist, Gamaliel, the “doctor of the Law,” and others, such as Nicodemus.

But after saying this, he turned his attention to the OTHER Pharisees — the rascals and insincere, the mountebanks and hypocrites among them, the rogues and scoundrels — the religious renegades and apostates! It is then of THESE kinds of Pharisees that he goes on to say, “WOE to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter [so obviously he was not here talking about devout, righteous Pharisees, such as Gamaliel, or Nicodemus, or Saul of Tarsus], nor will you let those enter who are trying to. WOE to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to make a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are. WOE to you, blind guides!” (Matt. 23:13-16).

Yeshua goes on to call the renegade, apostate Pharisees, who were like wolves in sheep’s clothing, masquerading as servants of YEHOVAH God, but still in positions of authority and power, “You blind fools!” (verse 17). He finally denounces them with these scathing words: “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?” (Matt. 23:33).

Yeshua was here not reprimanding Gamaliel or the other DEVOUT Pharisees of his time. Not at all! Since they were primarily in accord with his Judaic theology, and teachings, he had no need to criticize them or to denounce them publicly. Yeshua mentioned nothing here about the ethical school of Hillel in this passage of condemnation. Rather, he was denouncing and rebuking the APOSTATE scribes and Pharisees!

“The Painted Ones”

Modern Judaism calls those apostate scribes and Pharisees whom Yeshua encountered by the derogatory epithet “The Painted Ones.” Notice! Leo Trepp writes in A History of the Jewish Experience: Eternal Faith, Eternal People:

“Like any great movement, Pharisaism found in its ranks members that did not belong. They had joined, not in a spirit of idealism, but from motives of self-interest and the desire for self-aggrandizement. The leaders of the Pharisees were well aware of them and condemned them severely. In biting irony, the Rabbis called them ‘Painted Ones,’ whose piety was but painted on, a veneer designed to hide a heart of selfishness. Thus in the mouths of the rabbis, the term ‘Pharisee’ could be the highest accolade or scathing rebuke.

“Rabbi Joshua used to say: ‘A mad pietist, a cunning villain, a “Pharisaic” woman and the scourge of the Pharisees lead society to destruction (Sota 20 ff.).’

“In explanation the terms are clarifed:

“A mad pietist: he would not save a drowning woman; it is not ‘decent.’

“A cunning villain: he sees the judge alone, in chambers, before the start of a litigation.

“A Pharisaic Woman: a pray sister with an evil heart.

“The scourge of the Pharisees: seven unworthy types of Pharisees, namely:

“the egotistic Pharisee: he hopes to gain by his show of piety;

“the overmodest Pharisee: he walks with mincing steps;

“the bleeding Pharisee: he walks with eyes closed, lest he be tempted; he bleeds from hitting his head on the obstacles into which he has bumped;

“the bent-over Pharisee: he demonstrates his ‘humility’ by standing and walking in bowing position;

“the dutiful Pharisee: he has ‘never’ shirked his duty, and constantly asks for new tasks to perform;

“the Pharisee of ‘love,’ who makes a show of his love of God;

“the reverent Pharisee, making a show of his reverence for God.

“This sarcasm, which overstates the point, clearly shows the concern the rabbis felt over the penetration of unworthy people into their ranks. Their spirit is reflected in words which Jesus speaks to hypocrite Pharisees: ‘You Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness…ye tithe the mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God; these ought you to have done, but not to leave the other undone…you love the uppermost seats in the synagogues and greetings in the markets…Woe unto you scribes and Pharisee hypocrites, ye are graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them’ (Luke 12:39-44). We can almost pick the different types of ‘painted ones,’ who are mentioned here in equal sharp rebuke. But why did the rabbis permit these people to remain members of the group? Because as humans we cannot look into the hearts of men to determine their true motivations” (pp. 72-73).

Yeshua the Messiah — the True Devout Pharisee!

When we look at all the evidence, then, we see that Yeshua the Messiah did not come to bring an entirely new “religion.” Rather, he was a Jew, and he taught an enlightened, expanded truth of the Law of YEHOVAH God. He was taught of the Pharisees as a youth, and no doubt was considered as a “Pharisee” in general terms. The Pharisees of that day acknowledged him as a “rabbi,” or “teacher.” John the Baptist seemed to be indicating that Yeshua was, at least in the beginning, before he began his own separate ministry, among the Pharisees. For John said to the Pharisees who came to him, questioning him:

” ‘I baptise with water,’ John replied, ‘but AMONG YOU stands one you do not know. He is the one who comes after me, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie’ ” (John 1:26-27).

Yeshua observed the requirements of the “Judaism” of his time. When he told the Pharisees that the first commandment was to love YEHOVAH God with our whole being, he was actually quoting from Deuteronomy 6:4-5. When he said the second commandment was to love our neighbor, he was quoting from Leviticus 19:18. Yeshua emphasized ALL THE MAJOR POINTS of the “Judaism” of the day, except the “excess baggage” which false teachers had added to YEHOVAH’s commandments, including various “traditions of men” (see Mark 7:5-13).

Therefore, if we take a careful look at Yeshua the Messiah of the Bible, the one revealed in the New Testament, we find that he was a true, devout Jew who obeyed all the commandments, and taught others to do so. He only parted company with the Pharisees of his time when they parted company with the revealed Law of YEHOVAH God because of their onerous traditions, which they added to YEHOVAH’s laws, and which sometimes violated the spirit and intent of the Law! YESHUA WAS A JEW! He was the Greatest Jew of all time! He was not an anemic, pale, pagan “Gentilized Christ!”

It was most likely when Yeshua began his ministry, teaching the NEW REVELATION of the truth of YEHOVAH God, that the Father gave him, that the Pharisees suddenly came up in arms, began to criticize him, began to find fault, and the more miracles he performed, the more dangerous they felt he was to their establishment and their authority, and they began to attack him with vehemence and vituperation. The renegade false Pharisees cast him out of the synagogue, and accused him of being “demon-inspired” (Matt. 11:24). Nicodemus was a member of the Jewish “ruling council” (John 3:1). He sought out Yeshua “at night” because he didn’t want the other Jewish leaders to see him (verse 2). He acknowledged that Yeshua was sent by YEHOVAH God (verse 2).

By the time Yeshua’s ministry was nearly over, and he had even raised Lazarus from the dead, the apostate, renegade Pharisees still in power decided to have Yeshua put to death. When anyone decided to follow him, that person was cast out of the synagogue or church of that time (John 9:1-34). This was well known, so many people refused to associate with the Messiah out of fear (see verses 20-23).

Those who rejected Yeshua, and caused him to be crucified, were not the devout, pious, righteous Pharisees of that time. Rather, those who condemned and betrayed him were the self-righteous, apostate, renegade Pharisees (and Sadducees), who had at that moment in history usurped control and authority in the movement! They were spiritual “wolves” who had entered into the flock of YEHOVAH God, and devoured with rapine and ferocious rapacity.

It was the APOSTATE Pharisees, who had become ringleaders and powerful figures in the movement at that time, but who were RENEGADES spiritually, that Yeshua blistered with his scathing denunciations and condemnation, in Matthew 23!

There really should be no controversy or conflict among modern day Jews, therefore, who sincerely practice true Judaism. If they can only separate in their minds between the HISTORICAL YESHUA, and the FALSE CATHOLIC CHRIST, if they can only distinguish between the TRUE and the FALSE, the REAL and the IMITATION Yeshua, then they should have no problem accepting the teachings of the true Yeshua, who taught a purified and refined and fully developed “Judaism.” He came to fulfill the teachings of the Judaism of his day — not to abolish them! He came to amplify YEHOVAH’s Law — not to destroy it!

A modern Jew, Rabbi Roland B. Gittlesohn of the Temple Israel in Boston, Massachusetts, writes of the true, historical Yeshua:

“I can certainly accept Jesus as a fellow-Jew…Jesus was not a Christian; he was a Jew. He did not preach a new faith, but taught men to do the will of God; and in his opinion, as also in that of the Jews, the will of God was to be found in the law of Moses and in the other books of Scripture. Here we must make a clear distinction between the religion of Jesus and the religion about Jesus. The religion of Jesus was Judaism; there can be no doubt of that. Christianity is the religion about Jesus. When Jesus was asked, ‘What is the first of all the commandments/’ — he answered by reciting the Shema which is the great statement of Monotheistic Judaic faith: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One: and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul…this is the first commandment’….Even though these words are often quoted — even at times by ignorant or self-denying Jews — in the name of Jesus, he himself was surely aware of the fact that they come from the Hebrew Torah…which antedates him by many centuries. Jesus was consciously citing and reiterating Judaism. This Jesus, Jesus the Jew, I can with clear conscience accept. I can and do also accept him as a superb teacher, as a restless rebel against hypocrisy, as a compassionate counselor, as one who stressed the spirit over the letter of faith, though he knew the letter to be important too. Jesus [was] an extraordinarily beautiful and noble spirit, aglow with love and pity for men, especially for the unfortunate and lost, deep in piety, of keen insight into human nature, endowed with a brilliant gift of parable and epigram, an ardent Jew, moreover, a firm believer in the faith of his people; in all, a dedicated teacher of the principles, religious and ethical, of Judaism. As a Jew and rabbi, then, I can accept Jesus…He held the basic beliefs and practices of the Jewish heritage to be precious, but strove to refurbish and refine them, to adapt them to the needs of his time. This, however, is not the Jesus of [Catholic and Protestant] Christianity, nor of Jews for Jesus…” (Smashing the Idols: A Jewish Inquiry into the Cult Phenomenon, Gary D. Eisenberg, pp. 165-166).

Modern Jewish rabbis and scholars know that Yeshua followed the first century Pharisaic practices in regards to the Sabbath and Holy days. Virtually ALL the various criticisms against Yeshua, such as healing on the Sabbath days, were totally unfounded in view of the teaching of “Nikkuah Nefesh” within Pharisaic Judaism — that is, “A Life in Danger” permitted Yeshua to heal on the Sabbath days! — otherwise the sick and afflicted people mentioned in the Gospel accounts may have died without finding another opportunity for healing in time!

Orthodox Jews will no doubt take notice of the Messianic movement among modern Jews, and within modern Judaism, long before they will pay any attention to all the various confused churches of modern Christendom, including whose who profess to observe the Sabbath and holy days, but cannot determine which are the correct days to observe! Unfortunately, the Jews themselves have become confused and today keep an incorrect Sabbath and observe many of the Holy Days at the wrong time due to their corrupted calendar. [Revelation 12:9 speaks no lie]

There were Pharisees in the time of the Messiah who were false brethren. Later some of these apostate, renegade Pharisees even entered the Church of YEHOVAH God, accepted the Messiah as Saviour, at least on the outside, and professed to worship him. But they taught that Gentiles had to be circumcised in order to be saved. The apostle Paul had a terrific struggle with them throughout his ministry. “This brought Paul and Barnabas into sharp dispute and debate with them” (Acts 15:2).

These renegade Pharisees were especially prevalent among the Galatians. Paul had to write to them, “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a DIFFERENT GOSPEL — which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into CONFUSION and are trying to PERVERT the gospel of Christ” (Gal. 1:6-7). [Yet all today’s preachers worldwide will preach these words while not seeing themselves being who they were written for]

The apostate Pharisees were preaching circumcision for all Gentile converts. Paul told the Galatians, “This matter arose because some FALSE BROTHERS had INFILTRATED OUR RANKS to SPY on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus and to make us slaves. We did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might remain with you” (Gal. 2:4-5).

These were “false teachers,” who were the same kind of Pharisees — wolves in sheep’s clothing — as the renegade apostates condemned by the Messiah in Matthew 23! The apostle Peter also speaks of them, when he wrote, “But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will SECRETLY INTRODUCE destructive HERESIES, even denying the Sovereign Lord who bought them — bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up” (II Pet. 2:1-3).

This same problem has happened within our end-time age, today. There have once again been those who entered the Church of YEHOVAH God during these last days, and have brought in diabolical heresies, changing church teaching on the healing doctrine, denying the broken body of the Messiah which was sacrificed for our healing as well as salvation (Isa. 53:5; I Pet. 2:24). They have rejected the importance of end-time Biblical prophecies, and even accuse us of being “Satan inspired.”

The apostle Jude also wrote of these modern apostates. He declared, “I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints.”

Jude went on, “For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have SECRETLY SLIPPED IN AMONG YOU. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and DENY Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord” (Jude 3-4).

These men scoff at Bible prophecy. Jude wrote of them, “But dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. They said to you, ‘In the last times there will be SCOFFERS who will follow their own ungodly desires. These are the men who DIVIDE you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit” (Jude 17-19).

What about you? Will you follow modern renegade Pharisees into error and confusion? Will you become a spiritual “shipwreck”?

What about you? Will you worship the TRUE YESHUA THE MESSIAH of Scripture and history? Or will you follow the false pied pipers of FALSE CHRISTIANITY, and the FALSE YESHUA which they portray, instead of the true Yeshua?

Your salvation itself depends on your answer!

As for us, we will worship the true Messiah — the historical, Biblical Yeshua — the Yeshua who followed, obeyed, and taught ALL of his Father’s commandments

PLEASE SHARE THIS TRUTH CONCERNING ALL HUMANITY – EVEN THOUGH ITS BAD NEWS RATHER THAN THE GOOD ALL WANT TO HEAR

And know from the start that I don’t point fingers or judge any because sin dwells within us all just as Paul in Romans 7:14-25 – thus only run the race set before me same as all those called and spiritually directed.

Where within our world civilization can genuine love towards others be found? How many people out of over 7.4 billion have understanding of our human destiny under the extremely pathetic rule of man? How many Christians being over two billion see the signs of the times along with total world deception which includes Christianity according to the Bible?

This link below can be most interesting for any really wanting a better understanding of very much that goes on through ways of extreme darkness having effect on their lives; therefore know that all written has been well researched; however, this man just as all others being earthly and of this world has no idea whatsoever of what lies ahead in human suffering having no escape. In other words he has the natural and worldly mind as the many in 1 Corinthians 2:14 — rather than unknown spiritual truth revealed to the few in verse 13.

Any human being on this planet having computer access accompanied with a curious mind can see just how unstable our civilization with over 7.4 billion has become; and most depend on the media for information, but in truth all major media in every form is totally controlled, filled with lies, mislead, and only what civilization controllers want people worldwide to know; and the same holds true for all major religions everywhere on this globe — even though the Bible strongly warns all believers of shepherds worldwide that don’t feed their congregations any full truth they themselves know not – and they most certainly never teach or show examples from their own pocket on what it means to love others through more than just words alone with nothing added, because if they did as the Bible instructs, this world would not be so overloaded with extremely. . .

what-has-never-been-taught-in-religion-or-education-worldwide-86

“Call upon you, then, do I — the prisoner of the Lord — to walk worthily of the calling with which ye were called, with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love, being diligent to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of the peace; unto the perfecting of the saints, for a work of ministration, for a building up of the body of the Christ, till we may all come to the unity of the faith and of the recognition of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to a measure of stature of the fulness of the Christ, that we may no more be babes, tossed and borne about by every wind of the teaching, in the sleight of men, in craftiness, unto the artifice of leading astray, and, being true in love, we may increase to Him [in] all things, who is the head — the Christ; from whom the whole body, being fitly joined together and united, through the supply of every joint, according to the working in the measure of each single part, the increase of the body doth make for the building up of itself in love. Ephesians 4:1-3, 13-16

Do we not as Christians place very high value on fruits of the spirit?

“But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 (AMP)

So with those priorities, when is the last time you carefully examined yourself according to these following words directly from Yeshua?

“For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. luke-6-003Luke 6:43-46

This link below contains about 200 pages I wrote using scripture about two years ago, thus shares what YHVH says against pastors, ministers, priests, bishops, evangelists, prophets, and all religious leaders/teachers with all titles — including the Pope. Also scripture on how Yehovah God sees all congregations, coming punishment, and the only way to gain His mercy for protection here on earth — because just as all misleading lies pumped into billions of minds, the man made rapture fairy tale is another just as burning hell which makes our loving Father into a God of torture.

These next three links plainly show why we live within a world of division having zero unity; after all, do not all people on this earth all have their own Gods in different ways according to their walk, actions, and feelings towards others not like them?

Good study bringing actual gain requires a very time consuming effort people in our purposely and psychologically dumb down world society just don’t have; and that is because just as animals in a zoo are satisfied, so is our human race unknowingly being all tied up as slaves within a controlled, but not restricted prison of life.

Non restricted means civilization has their free run to take drugs, drink, gamble, rape, same sex whatever, child use and abuse, video game addiction, texting, shopping, traveling, movies, idiot television, cartoons for brainwashing, and just the uncountable ways of life having a million forms to keep civilization from knowing or seeing what lies ahead for all on this earth; but all that is about to change drastically into a fully restricted life bringing every evil known to mankind upon a human race chained down with no escape.

Welcome to the New America and our entire human race run by the New World Order having the Christian’s within its population totally unprepared as foolish virgins – so reveals scripture they have never been taught.

“There is a way — right before a man, And its latter end [are] ways of death. Proverbs 14:12

deuteronomy-001Deuteronomy 31:29

INSTRUCTION AND WARNING NOT SPIRITUALLY HEARD 

What is most sad about everything happening against humanity on this planet is that when truth from all directions is presented, none, no, not one believes; and the reasons why none want truth is also precisely revealed in Psalms 14:2-3 just read above, and many more verses – yet still not believed just as written in the Bible.

What exactly is our real situation? 

First take the time to read in the link below some of the 240 individual writings and articles with many photos regarding what exactly is taking place on our planet earth through governments, religions, business, banking, health, diseases and much more such as Freemasons and Illuminati.

So Who Am I to Write and Share What Millions of Others Write and Share??

In 2008 I had a head injury leaving me nothing but time – so I was spiritually drawn deep into the Bible, stayed to myself, and began gaining biblical education, and the ways of corrupt government around 1990 — and then when 2006 came, I just left America on a one way ticket with very little funds, zero income, my Bibles, Strong’s Concordance, Holman Set, and had no intent on ever returning to a corrupt and dying nation.

SO WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

bible-verses-006

Because I took personally the words just read, I began my in-depth spiritual education without man in the middle to distort or change my direction while looking only to YHVH as instructed in Proverbs 3:6 — and it was because during my 51 years of life at that time back in 2006 —  I had never been a church member or a part of any religious organization; therefore was called out of this world through John 15:19 because I was very open and teachable, rather than someone religion filled and having their own thoughts making their way the right way as written in Proverbs 14:12, 16:25. Look again at the links supplied above with the religion chart, other Gods, and world deception to better understand why our human race is totally divided, unstable, and nearing great calamity.

So now, ten years later, what did I accomplish? and how did my wife and I survive a life with this world of Christians lacking the commanded fruits of love according to much scripture?

What are some of life’s many difficulties, billions always had to live with having no choice in the matter. So for us, through strong faith, we have well learned to just accept any cards dealt by Yehovah while knowing He has a purpose for our life – even though we really don’t like anything about the way we have had to live for so many years just as Paul had no simple or easy life along with uncountable others through their suffering, and even death.

Fact about me is this:

Because all my websites have always been free, just as my wireless internet from a neighbors router — ads may appear that I have nothing to do with — and most certainly don’t want — so when Yehovah leads someone to help us with basic needs, any Internet upgrades would be a blessing.

 

How Genuine People Behave: Who is Real and Who is Fake

shout_never-tell-your-problems-to-anyone

We humans are poor critics of someone’s true personality and we are quick to judge someone based on their outer demeanour, [the way a person behaves towards others] instead of their true selves. It is only so hard to differentiate one from the other because there is only a fine line between being truly nice and fake magnanimity. Differentiating the genuine souls from the pretentious ones is pretty hard and we often end up being close to people who don’t truly care about you or your issues. Fake people have this kind of air around them that makes them appear to be genuine and no one can really tell the difference!

Identifying and keeping the genuine people, the people who seriously care about your well-being is essential for a happy life. Be it in your business, educational life, friendships and life in general, keeping the genuine souls closer to you will save you from a lot of pain and trouble. So, as I was repeatedly reiterating the fact that fake people are harder to differentiate from the genuine ones, how can you go about differentiating between the same? There are some striking characteristics of genuine people which make them easily stand out from the fake ones, whose candour towards you or others is not genuine.

7 Striking Characteristics of Genuine people

Here are 7 of the striking characteristics of genuine people, so that you don’t fall into the trap of the fake people. Fake people possess a candour [state or quality of being frank, open, and sincere in speech or expression] of the ‘true good to be true’ stature and it is necessary that you steer away from such people for a peaceful mind. Below are the 7 striking characteristics of genuine people so that you can identify and keep these people close to your lives.

They Speak their minds out

shout_speak-my-mind

These are the kind of people who go on and say things that need to be said. Even it if costs them a relationship or a serious business. Genuine people would never sugarcoat the reality for the sake of pleasing everyone around themselves. These people generally take the time to form their opinions and to better understand their perspective on situations and people. These are the ones who are not quick to make heavy criticisms about others without getting a deeper look at the situation. Although once formed an opinion or landed upon an insight, these people never shy away from making others know of the same.

Also, these people are extremely at ease even while they are laying down the harsh reality to others. Also, the genuine people possess the ability to take a joke on themselves and entertain it when no offense was intended, given that they don’t take themselves too seriously. Genuine people objectify themselves as the same indiscriminate way that they do with other people or situations. This often leads them to gain genuine and meaningful insights into the people and the situations around themselves.

IN ALL THAT I HAVE BEEN DIRECTED TO SPEAK REGARDING BIBLICAL INSTRUCTION CHRISTIANITY IGNORES, I SPEAK WHILE KNOWING THE CIRCUMSTANCE AS WRITTEN:

“If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. John 15:19 (AMPC)
 

They prefer deep conversations over gossips and small talk

shout_small-talk

A very humanly trait of people is that we engage on some kind of gossip on a daily basis. They have become such an essential part of our existence that it is hard to expect otherwise from someone. Genuine people have zero tolerance for such gossips and make sure that they are not playing a part in such small talk. Instead, genuine people prefer to have a deep and meaningful conversation with the people around them. You can easily identify a genuine person when you can have a meaningful conversation with them, without them feeling an urge to interrupt with their own agendas.

These people have a thing for stories and will always welcome an interesting thought or idea from your end and, without interrupting you while doing so. These are the kind of people who will engage with you in some kind of deep philosophical conversations. Genuine people love and care to learn about you, your story and what shaped it to be the way you are right now. Intense and Intellectually-stimulating talks about life in general, purpose, the human race and society are some examples of talks you would usually engage with genuine people.

They possess a good balance of self-esteem

shout_be-who-you-are

Quantifying a person’s self-esteem is definitely something not within the capacity of humans, but there are a few key identifiers for the same. A narcissistic person is the one who usually possesses an air of pride, negligence, and highest self-esteem about themselves. People with low self-esteem are anxiously unsure about themselves and always feel needy of love and attention as if being devoured of it. There’s a sweet spot that genuine people embrace with grace and this perfect balance in self-esteem makes them who they are.

A person with stable self-esteem is pretty rare these days and this very quality makes the genuine people able to handle criticisms, take responsibility of their failures and they embrace their imperfections with grace. Genuine people are wary of their shortcomings and have an ability to take in both positive and negative feedback about themselves or their work. These are the kind of people who actively acknowledge aspects of their shortcomings and constantly work on improving upon their weaknesses.

They accept and take full responsibility of their mistakes

shout_stop-blaming-others

The quality of a person with well-balanced self-esteem are the ones who take full responsibility of any kind of mess they end up creating. These people are the ones who are the last ones to put the blame on people around them. Loathing and always looking forward to putting their outcomes onto the shoulders of people around them is the least you can expect off a genuine person.

It is very hard to expect people to truly own their feelings and opinions on people and situations. Confronting the bad in oneself is a pretty daunting task and it takes an authentic character to face with the reality and to execute change. Genuine people embrace themselves and their individuality and this very factor makes them more appreciative of people around them and less likely to put the blame onto others.

They don’t go around trying to please everybody

shout_cant-please-everybody

Again, another factor of the highly genuine people is that they don’t feel a need for acceptance from people around them. Fake people are not true to themselves given that they get too busy trying to please everyone else in the process. Since genuine people are not always trying to please everyone, you usually don’t find them seeking people’s attention or with an urge to be liked.

Although these people are quick to give out compliments to people who they think are deserving of it, genuine people don’t do so just for the sake of pleasing everyone around. Authentic people share their thoughts and opinions with the people without considering the possibility of it making them more hated. Genuine people are fine if you like them and likewise fine if you dislike them.

They listen to their in  nselves

shout_listen-to-your-inner-voice

The world we currently live in very noisy and all we are surrounded with most of the time is advice and opinions on things and situations. While it is very easy to get lost in such immense outcries of people, the authentic people have developed an ability to listen to their inner selves and go with their gut feelings. Genuine people don’t pursue a career or dream, just because someone else is performing exceptionally good at it.

Because genuine people are well aware of themselves, this level of self-awareness helps them to be in tune with their inner voice. Very wary of their own shortcomings and strengths, genuine people follow their gut instincts and are very comfortable with who they are. We all do something, behave some way and feel some way primarily because of our unique principles and beliefs that we live by. It is in the better understanding of their own principles which help genuine people to ignore the crowd and to follow their heart.

WHEN OUR LIFE BECOMES ONLY SEEING THIS WORLD UNDER THE YOKE OF PATHETIC HUMAN RULE: ALL THAT REMAINS IS WHAT ONLY WE CAN HEAR INSIDE THROUGH FAITH

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths. PROVERBS 3:5-6

They practice what they preach

shout_practice-what-you-preach

Although it could be hard to tell the difference between genuine and fake people, you can easily tell the difference by this very factor. It is very often that we hear opinions and advice from people on our situations when they haven’t been in our shoes. What’s even worse is the people who don’t stand by their own values or their beliefs. Authentic people own their opinions and advice and truly mean when they speak something.

Fake-Genuine people sincerely practice what they preach and they preach what they practice. These people are comfortable sharing their true self with people around themselves and do not hesitate to give away genuine opinions and advice to others. It is these people you need to keep away from since their self-righteous nature would not lead to any better situation for you.

When a person’s only life becomes totally disassociated with this world through spiritual lead and living with hardship from every direction for ten years – all that can be seen is this entire world of humans being just who they truly are; and that includes this world of Christian hypocrites overflowing with lip love — but in truth could care less about you, your problems, or anything but themselves. And I am just speaking truth according to scripture with years and years of experiences while being broke, hungry, unable to properly provide for my wife having many health issues, and living as a have not in a country where there is no work for a man of 61: therefore never judging any — but rather revealing truth for this world of Christian goats according to their actions that will face nearing judgment without mercy. Read in the link below the judgment for goats.
