Let us Bless HIS NAME Now and Forevermore!
And on the 3rd Day
Peter made reference to Psalms 90:4 with these words, “But, beloved ones, let not this one matter be hidden from you; that with YAHUAH one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8
It has been approximately 2,000 years… or should we say, we are fast approaching the 3rd day since MESSIAH ascended into Heaven with the promise to return…and as prophesied there has been a spirit of slumber that has found place in a segment of the Body of MESSIAH. Although perhaps not with the mouth, but rather with the heart, and therefore exposed by one’s manner of living…what is being said is, “where is the promise of HIS coming.” 2 Peter 3:4
2 Peter 3:8 goes on to say, “…YAHUAH is not slow in regard to the promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward us, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. But the Day of YAHUAH shall come as a thief in the night…”
Of course, there are those who at this point are quick to quote Matthew 24:36, “…no man knows the day or hour.” But you cannot quote Matthew 24:36 to the exclusion of 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6, “…but you are not in darkness that the day should overtake you as a thief. You are all the children of light and the children of the day; we are not of the night or of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.” So if we are admonished to “watch and be sober”; the question becomes, what are we watching for and from what are we to abstain so as to maintain sobriety. I believe that the answer is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:1, “But of the times and seasons, brethren, you have no need that I write you.” Why…because, Paul was talking to those who had knowledge of and were being taught to see the revealed Word of Scripture through the foretelling and forthtelling of Prophecy. And if we heed the revealed Word of instruction, we then forsake partaking of the wine of self-deception. Far too often, in the Church and in some Messianic circles, Prophecy has been understood as foretelling future events…and it is. However, Prophecy is as well, the forthtelling of HIS Word in such a way as to cause a deeper understanding which then lends itself to facilitate correction through exhortation, which leads to comfort (“fort” in comfort comes from a French word fortis-to strengthen or fortify) and edification.
1 Corinthians 14:3 “But he that prophesys, speaks unto men unto edification, and exhortation and comfort.”
This edification, exhortation and comfort is not for the purposes of building self-esteem but rather that YAHUAH (the LORD), our ELOHIM (GOD) be esteemed unto HIS predestined plan being made manifest through us. As MESSIAH explained, it is not given to the world to know HIS mysteries as it is given to us. The question is, what is being done with HIS revealed WORD? Is the Truth of Scription being mixed with the vain imaginations of men in collaborative religious orgainzations called denominations—vain imaginations such as a secret Rapture which serves to deceive the Called-out Ones into believing the delusion that there will be a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. There is no secret Rapture. There is no precedence in Scripture for a secret Rapture. Back to 1 Thessalonians 5:9, “For ELOHIM has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Master YAHUSHA (JESUS) the MESSIAH (CHRIST).” Now herein lies the error— “wrath” and “tribulation” are two separate words. Clearly, we are not appointed to “wrath”, Strong’s G3709, “anger, wrath, indignation”. However, the word “tribulation”, Strong’s 2347, meaning “a pressing, pressure, oppression, distress, straits, affliction” is the word used in Acts 14:22, Matthew 24:21 and Matthew 24:29-30.
Acts 14:22 “Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith and that we must through much tribulation enter into the Kingdom of ELOHIM.”
Matthew 24:21-22 “For then shall be great tribulation such as was not in the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor shall ever be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
Matthew 24:29-30 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from Heaven, and the powers of the Heavens shall be shaken; and then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in Heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the Earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of Heaven with power and great glory.”
In addition, as we become students of Scripture, one of the first tools we are equipped with is the understanding that contrary to the Greco-Roman mindset, history is cyclical and not linear in progression. Ecclesiastes 1:9 says it this way,
“The thing which has been, is that which shall be done; and that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun.”
So where do we see Scriptural precedence for the “catching away” that is described in 1 Thessalonians 4…in the Book of Exodus after the 10 plagues—plagues which are quite simular to the plagues of the Book of Revelations. In fact, we see a situation which is essentially the scenario of the Book of Revelations…surely, the FATHER has the choice to remove the Hebrews BEFORE the 10 plagues and still pour out HIS wrath on the Egyptians in judgement. However, HIS Sovereign power is made manifest for all to witness as HE judges Egypt while Sovereignly hiding Israel in the protection of HIS Covenant.
Furthermore, as we seek to understand the true unfolding of Scripture, need we be reminded that it was on the 3rd Day that our Savior raised from the dead with all power in HIS hands…indeed, the precedence was set for the day of HIS resurrection from the very beginning—Genesis 1:9-13 describes the 3rd Day of Creation as being the Day of reproduction of seed after it’s own kind…HE is the pure, unadulterated Seed of the Word of ELOHIM (GOD) and so it is that the Seed which is the Word rose again on the 3rd Day which in accordance with HIS own prophetic calendar published in the Book of Leviticus, is the Feast of Firstfruits… that HE may be reproduced in the soil of our hearts (1 Peter 1:23, Luke 8:11, Leviticus 23).
Also, HE was speaking prophetically of us as members of HIS Body when HE said, “After two days HE shall revive us, on the third day HE shall raise us up, so that we live before HIM.” Hosea 6:2
The Days of Elijah which necessarily precede the Days of Elisha and the Double Portion Anointing…
Malachi 3:1 “See, I am sending MY messenger, and he shall prepare the way before ME. Then suddenly the SOVEREIGN you are seeking comes to HIS Temple, even the MESSENGER of the Covenant, in whom you delight. See, HE is coming,” said YAHUAH of hosts.
And while many have their eyes set on the building of the 3rd Temple in the political state of what the world calls Israel; may we who have placed our hope in the true Biblical fulfillment of prophecy, fix our eyes on HIS Prophetic Word…
Acts 7:47-49 But it was Solomon who built a house for Him. “However, the Most High does not dwell in houses made by human hands; as the prophet says: ‘HEAVEN IS MY THRONE, AND EARTH IS THE FOOTSTOOL OF MY FEET; WHAT KIND OF HOUSE WILL YOU BUILD FOR ME?’ says the YAHUAH, ‘OR WHAT PLACE IS THERE FOR MY REPOSE?…
1Corinthians 3:16 “Do you not know that you are the Temple of ELOHIM (GOD), and that the Spirit of ELOHIM (GOD) lives in you.”
Because YAHUSHA was speaking of HIS Body when HE said, “Destroy this Temple and in three days I will raise it up“.
And so we see, it is a Temple not made with hands that we are to co-labor in building in receiving the TRUE and LIVING MESSIAH at HIS coming. It is in the Spirit of correction which precedes erection…or in other words, repentance, rebuilding and restoration to which this site is dedicated. HalleluYAH and Amen!!!
Truth in Identity
YAHUSHA (YAHUAH SAVES) or Barabbas (son of the father)
As YAHUSHA (JESUS) entered the city of Jerusalem, ELOHIM’S (GOD’S) chosen people shouted “Hosana” translated, “Save us”…Soon after, at the leading of the Pharisees, they shouted “Give us Barabbas”…the Pharisees were heavily vested in the kingdoms of this world and were therefore willing to oppose even YAHUAH, our ELOHIM (the LORD, our GOD)…and all who HE has sent…even THE WORD made flesh.
While the Pharisees represented the religious status quo, Barabbas represented the religious Zealots. While the Pharisees operated in a spirit of collusion seeking to gain favor and increasing power with the Roman government through Herod. The Zealots, inclusive of Barabbas, sought to forcefully wrest power from the Roman government–thereby “restoring Israel from their Roman captivity”. The common ground held by the Pharisees and Zealots was that they both held common interest in the same “real estate”–a worldly kingdom… and YAHUSHA said “My Kingdom is not of this world“. John 18:36
Ecclesiastes 1:9 “That which has been is that which shall be, and that which has been done is that which shall be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun.”
The same cast of characters exist today in Christianity–Christian Pharisees, Zealots, and Herods, etc….and might I add, the agenda is essentially unchanged. The objective is still “save us unto a worldly kingdom which is currently in the hands of the ungodly.” And ELOHIM’s (GOD’s) chosen people are in many Churches being led by Christian Pharisees as they shout, “Hosana” (Save us), “Crucify JESUS” and “Give us Barabbas”.
Case in point, the ” 7 Mountain Mandate”. Just as historically the Zealots appeared to have a revolutionary resolution for Roman oppression then; today, those in Christian circles espousing this philosophy of man, the “7 Mountain Mandate,” are equally deceptive. Both then and now, what is being called for is something other than the plans and purposes of the ALMIGHTY. Both then and now, what is being called for is someone other than the true MESSIAH. The 7 Mountains Mandate calls the salvation of souls “limiting” and therefore makes their own call for “agents of change”, or “change agents” to “influence” the kingdoms of the world with Christian culture and thereby bring about the reign of MESSIAH (CHRIST). Although throughout Scripture we are admonished against the mixing of the WORD of ELOHIM (GOD) with the philosophies and traditions of man; we have only to look back over the past 200 years to see the impotence of “Christian influence” in the culture of America…and Europe, where Church buildings are being sold and turned into boutiques and nightclubs.
Yet another departure from Scripture is “Christian Zionism”. To begin with, although Christianity may have it’s roots in the religion of Judaism, the faith once delivered to the Elect (saints), is NOT rooted in Judaism. As a matter of fact, YAHUSHA (JESUS) opposed Judaism then and now. Why? Because, although Judaism makes mention of the Torah and the Prophets, Judaism elevates the Talmud over the Torah. The Talmud is a compilation of commentaries and interpretations of Scripture made by those who call themselves “rabbi”(remember YAHUSHA [JESUS] said call no man Rabbi). The elevation of the traditions of man over Scripture is indeed a very dangerous detour from Truth. Therefore, everything must be held up to the light of Scripture–whether something said by Calvin or Luther or anything said on this site or in any Christian book; because in the end, only the Truth of the Word of YAHUAH (the LORD), our ELOHIM (GOD) shall prevail. HalleluYAH !!!
Zionism is a political movement of the religion of Judaism which again is Talmudic and denies the MESSIAH (CHRIST) who died and rose again more than 2,000 years ago. The political state which the world calls Israel today is not the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy concerning bringing HIS people back into the land (even some who adhere to Judaism will admit to that)…but rather it is the fulfillment of the prophecy which speaks of HIS land being overrun by Gentiles. The Israeli government and Judaism do not recognize our MESSIAH but they will embrace a messiah…the anti-messiah because it will be politically expedient to do so. Zionism, even when labeled Christian is yet a continuum of the Zealot spirit which appears revolutionary but falls short of the “REVOLUTIONARY” who rescued us with HIS very life. And if you embrace Zionism, whether knowingly or unwittingly, you are saying, “Give us Barabbas” which is a figure of anti-messiah (“anti’ meaning not only “against” but also “instead of”). The political state of Israel that exists in the world today is a fulfillment of the collaboration of the Herods, Pharisees and Zealots of all time.
In Luke 17:20-21, YAHUSHA (JESUS) said in answer to the Pharisees, …“The reign of ELOHIM (GOD) does not come by observation nor shall they say, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ For, behold, the Kingdom of ELOHIM (GOD) is within you.” Revealed in the MESSIAH’s words are the plans and purposes of the FATHER. The rule and reign of MESSIAH (CHRIST) is a ruling and reigning from the thrones of the hearts of mankind which precedes the Millennial reign of MESSIAH (CHRIST)…and the Millennial reign of MESSIAH (CHRIST) does not come without destruction of the world as we know it and the Creation of a New Heaven and a New Earth. So we see that while mankind is walking in the Valley of Decision concerning Eternity, even once we have come to the knowledge of the Truth, we are admonished to work out our salvation with fear and trembling , we are to take heed;
“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world rather than according to MESSIAH (CHRIST).” Colossians 2:8
“DAY 7″…Entering Into HIS Rest…
That place of obedience to the Voice of HIS WORD…in Truth
Have you ever taken note of the fact that there are the only 3 times in the entire Bible that the term “Christian(s)” is used. Perhaps the reason is revealed in Thayer’s Lexicon where it is explained that “the name (Christian) was given to the worshippers of Jesus Christ, by the Gentiles“…so therefore, it was not the name they referred to themselves as; which then explains the infrequent use of the term “Christian” in Scripture.
Acts 11:25-26 “Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul: And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the Church (Strong’s #G1577, The Called Out Assembly of Israelites), and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians (Strong’s #G5546, definition: followers of Christ) first in Antioch.”
Acts 26:28 “Then Agrippa said unto Paul, ‘Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.’”
1 Peter 4:14-16 “If you be reviled for the Name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory and of GOD rests on you. Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler; but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify GOD in this Name.”
The names that those who followed the Messiah referred to themselves as, were more consistent with their deeper understanding of the prophetic continuum of GOD’S WORD–so therefore they called themselves: Hebrews, Israelites, The Way…
But let us call into question whether those who the Gentiles called Christians then … would themselves even find much in common theologically with those who call themselves Christians today.
The True Identity Of The Sabbath: The Catholic Church changed the Sabbath (Exodus 20:10-11) from Saturday to Sunday and insinuates, even brags (in writing) that they have the power to change Scripture…and the Protestant Church has simply followed suit in completely silent agreement…For further detail, you may click the linked title to refer to Blog Roll Video “The Roman Catholic Church Says It Is Above GOD–Vatican Changes Ten Commandments”
True Identity Of Israel According to the Spirit:
The Bible, in it’s entirety, is a Book whereby the Creator of the Universe chose individuals of HIS Creation over a span of 4000 years and used them like spiritual ink pens in HIS hand…these “pens” however were filled with the “ink” of HIS HOLY SPIRIT as they recorded what “thus says the AUTHOR”…and by HIS designation, all of whom HE has chosen are called Hebrews–from Abraham to the recipients of the Renewed Covenant (New Testament)… by HIS calling, all are Hebrews. The Bible is a Book written by Hebrews and to Hebrews…and to be clear, Hebrew does not mean Jew–those are two separate identities; a matter which is discussed throughout this site…and thus explains the letter addressed to the Hebrews…not addressed to the Jews and not to the Gentiles; but rather to the Hebrews…not so as to ethnically exclude either of those other two groups but rather as a statement of Covenant that both Jew and Gentile are able to be born into spiritually. There is nothing in the Book of Hebrews that uniquely pertains to “Jewish Believers,” as has been “explained” for so long. Every word of the Book of Hebrews is for every born again Believer–then and now. Seminaries and “Bible Scholars” have long explained that the Book of Hebrews found in the Renewed Covenant (New Testament) was addressed to the “Jewish Believers” because of certain passages which referred to Scripture passages in the “Old Testament” that Gentiles would not understand as well because they were “Jewish”–such as the sacrificial system, etc. However, this mindset feeds the lie that once born into the Kingdom of YAHUAH, that Gentiles remain Gentile…constituting a “united nations” of Jesus. NO…the King reigns over a Kingdom…the identity of it’s citizens defined by virtue of their birth as citizens of the King’s Domain (definition of domain is “territory over which rule or control is exercised”)…thus, King-dom…Kingdom of Israel… Now it is crucially important to understand that The FATHER made provision for ALL who will enter HIS Kingdom. It is not our physical heritage that provides our citizenship in HIS Kingdom. It is a matter of Covenant. The initial terms of HIS Covenant were conditioned upon our obedience to HIS Laws and ordinances and the implementation of the sacrifical system as a measure of HIS mercy for disobedience. Now according to passages of Scripture such as Isaiah ; those who were physically descended from Abraham through the line of Shem were not the exclusive “sheep of HIS pasture”, However, the same Laws, ordinances, etc. pertained to all–whether of natural lineage or those who sought to be included in the ranks of the people of YAHUAH (the LORD). The sacrificial system although fulfilling a real purpose for the people of that day, was in fact, a type and shadow of the fulfillment of HIS mercy by virtue of our perfect sacrifice, the Lamb of ELOHIM, YAHUSHA, who shed HIS Blood in seven places; thereby cleanses us from sin, lawlessness (iniquity), and unrighteousness that we may be reconnected (born-again) unto HIM as children of HIS Kingdom. Consider: Matthew 11:11. May we not be snared into the worship of man’s flesh–whether that be Judaism, Hebrewism or Gentile-ism. Consider as well: Strong’s #G1672, the word, “Gentile”…Strong’s Concordance says that this word specifically speaks of the Greeks by ethnicity or in general terms embraces all nations other than “Jews” that make the language, customs and learnings of the Greeks their own; however, the Strong’s Concordance goes on to say that when the word Gentile is used, the primary reference is to a difference of “RELIGION AND WORSHIP“. So why would someone who is sincere in their seeking true worship of the ONE TRUE and living ELOHIM (GOD) call themselves “Gentile Christian” or “Gentile Church”… Ponder as well, the truth according to Scripture–In the Book of Revelations, the desciption of the New Jerusalem has twelve gates…none of which are assigned to the “Gentiles”so how would you propose to enter as a Gentile…Selah
In general, Christianity (by the way, the term “Christianity” is not mentioned even once in the entire Bible) teaches a greasy Grace…saying we are no longer under the Torah (Law)…in other words, YAHUSHA (JESUS) took away the sins of the world so that once we are saved we can now live however we want…instead of the Truth of the Word which says that HE came not to do away with the Torah (Law) but rather HE came so as to fulfill the Law by empowering us by Grace through Faith, to obey HIS “teaching and instruction” which is the actual translation and Hebrew concept of the word Torah which is translated “Law” (Matthew 5:17) …HIS Torah (Law) is now written on our hearts (Jeremiah 31:33 and 2 Corinthians 3:3) to serve that exact purpose of empowerment over sin…
True Identity Of the Calendar of YAHUAH (the LORD): Christmas, Easter and Halloween are all pagan holidays… the information on this topic is readily available to whomever is seeking the Truth…the traditions of man have however replaced the traditions of ELOHIM (GOD) even though HE has plainly declared in HIS Word, the appointment of HIS Holy Days as opposed to the world’s holidays…(Leviticus 23) For further details on the true history of the holidays: Christmas, Easter, etc…refer to the post on this site entitled “Freedom…Captivity…It’s An Inside Job“
True Identity Of The Gospel: Fleecing the Flock…With the “Prosperity Gospel”…Religious Empires/Personal Kingdoms are being sought after and built on erroneous teachings that oppose the very core of the True Gospel…aided by “Revived Roman” Financial and Political arrangements with the world’s government which resemble that of Herod and the Pharisees with the Roman government of the time of our Messiah’s First Coming…Ecclesiastes 1:9, “That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.”…Selah …These religious fortunes often go toward the financing of private jets and mansions–as greedy entitlements…which is then explained to the flock as being GOD’s reward for faithful service…and of course, this is not new; 2 Corinthians 2:17, Paul addresses this issue, “Unlike so many, we do not peddle the Word for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before GOD, with sincerity, as those sent from GOD.” …they then turn around and teach the flock the same greed and call it “faith”…when the Word says …in 1 Timothy 6:9, “Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction” And of course, that doesn’t mean that we forego having our needs met…Matthew 6:31-33 “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or what will we drink? or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your Heavenly FATHER knows that you need all these things. But seek first HIS Kingdom and HIS Righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you” …Being taught as a matter of Christian principle, the “Prosperity doctrine” substitutes the wealth of this world for the True Riches of the Messiah’s Kingdom…Simularly, Esau sold his birthright to Jacob because he found greater value in temporary material gain rather than the spiritual wealth of that which is eternal. Please note…that which is being expressed on this site is not being done so for the sake of profit…nor is permission given for the reprinting of any of the text of this site for profit.
True Identity Of Israel According To The Flesh: The true identity of historical and present day Hebrews has been intentionally obscured…which then serves to veil the truth of the unfolding of Prophecy…As a means of furthering this cover-up, entire Books of Biblical Writings were removed from the Bible not so very long ago…as recent as 400 years ago. These Books were part of the Bible text even in 1611 A.D. These writings were not only studied by the Early Assembly of Called-Out Ones, “Church,” but countless times are made reference to in what is recognized as Inspired Text…In other words, how can one recognize that the Scripture is indeed divinely inspired and yet discredit the very books that Scripture makes reference to…writings such as the Book of Enoch (made reference to in Jude 1:14-15), and the Book of Jasher (made reference to in Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1:18) along with several other writings contained in the Apocrypha, and the historical insight offered through the writings of Josephus…What is interesting is that these Books such as Jasher and Enoch were even considered by the Catholics to be part of the Bible even in 1611…while on the other hand, it was Judaism (with Protestantism following suit) which did not and does not include these writings…Selah…In fact, Judaism is the religion that YAHUSHA (JESUS) rebuked. How interesting it is that Christianity identifies itself as JudeoChristian—a term that has been used since the 1950′s so as to recognize the common roots of Christianity and Judaism. Indeed, much has been done to conceal the historically accurate identity of Israel according to the flesh. The most effective way to promote a counterfeit is to conceal the real. In this case, the purpose of the masquerade is to obscure Biblical prophecy so as to fabricate and propagate the agenda of the false christ. The majority of people in the world today who identify themselves as physical descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob also identify themselves as Ashkenazi Jews. Ashkenazi are from the tribe of Japheth (the progenitor of the Europeans) through Gomer which means by their own admission, they are not of Shem and therefore are not Semitic and not the physical descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They are recent converts to Judaism who have “returned” to a land they never came from. Historically, they primarily emanate from Kazaria. The second largest population of those in the world today who lay claim to being physical descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob also call themselves Sephardic Jews. There have as well been studies conducted which indicate that there is a “Non-Jewish origin of the Sephardic Jews”. One such book by that same title was written by Paul Wexler. Wexler’s study points to the majority of Sephardic Jews being of Berber and Arab descent. Now, is there anything in Scripture that sheds light on this subject. Perhaps so, let us make reference to 2Kings 17:23-26. So, according to Scripture, the Sepharvaim were those, “who did not know the ways of ELOHIM (GOD) of the land” and were brought into the land when Israel was removed due to disobedience. Therefore, we see that they too were not of the physical lineage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. At this point, we must reiterate the significance of this information in discerning and understanding the unfolding of prophecy—as it is further evidence that the politcal state which the world calls Israel today is not in any way a fullfilment of Israel being restored to the land. For more insight into that which has been uncovered as pertains to the diaspora of the physical descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, please click on the title link, “Mystery Solved!!!” Having reconciled ourselves to the Truth, it is vitally important that we not be self-deceived…for we do not glory in or esteem the flesh. For our salvation does not rest in the flesh…or our physical identity…but rather our true identity rests in the inner man which is eternal. We see this Truth born out in the languishing sorrow that Paul expresses as he laments over this point in Romans, Chapter 9.
True Identity of the Timing of our Ultimate Deliverance: The Early Assembly of The Way, (the Church) never believed that there would be a Pre-Tribulation Rapture because there is no Scriptural foundation for this doctrine. In fact, it is documented that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a very modern doctrine—first proposed and popularized by John Nelson Darby in 1827.
True Identity Of YAHUAH, our ELOHIM (the LORD, our GOD): The Early Assembly of The Way, “the Church”, were predominately “natural” or some translations say, “cultivated” branches of the Olive Tree. Romans 11:24 These were Hebrews, according to the flesh, who had been cultivated, refined, and groomed by The Scriptures from birth…and from generation to generation. The Torah (Law) and the Prophets and Writings had shaped their culture and their general understanding of Creation, The CREATOR and the coming MESSIAH, the promised SAVIOR. And even still, it was a matter of revelation, or illumination of the WORD stored in their hearts that uncovered the true identity of the MESSIAH in their very midst. And so it is required of us, that we discard the religious traditions of man interpreting Scripture; and allow Scripture to interpret Scripture. It’s only then that we are able to see the singularity with which The CREATOR speaks of HIMSELF. There is NOT even one place in Scripture where YAHUAH says, Hear, O Israel, YAHUAH (the LORD) is 3. There was ample opportunity, and there’s not one place. On the contrary, there are numerous places where HE repeats, HE is ONE, and there is NO OTHER. (notably, Deuteronomy 6:4 and all of Isaiah 45) Having multiple gods is distinctly polytheistic and pagan. Perhaps, linguistically there are instances which lend themselves to misunderstanding. For example, Genesis 1 and 2, “Let Us” and “in Our image”…therefore, Trinitarians have argued that The FATHER is not the SON and the SON is not the HOLY SPIRIT…However, if we follow through; HE is saying that mankind, in it’s diversity, is yet and still, individually created in HIS image…EACH ONE person was created in HIS image. Each one person created with a Spirit, Soul, and Body—our Spirit is not our Soul and our Soul is not our Body. Each has it’s specific duties or function but they together constitute One Person. So therefore we see function; but then there’s also the matter of relating to others in our function. For example, a man can be a Husband, Brother, Son, Uncle, Grandfather, etc. as he relates to another. But he’s still the One Person. One who serves in many roles is said to “wear many hats;” however, we know without question that that does not mean that he has many heads. He is yet one person. Remember, YAHUAH is Spirit; and in explaining the realm of the spirit which is invisible to those in the visible finite realm, HE uses things that are seen. There is absolutely no instance of the Disciples espousing Trinitarian doctrine. They instead struggled with unbelief. So perhaps the hardest part for the Disciples to understand before the giving of the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room and perhaps the hardest part for some even today in understanding the Oneness of Elohim YAHUAH is this–to come to the realization that HE who could have sent anybody, made HIMSELF a Body and came HIMSELF to rescue HIS Creation. It’s enough to make one fall in love with HIM all over again.
Like many others, when YAHUAH first saved me, I went into the Christian Church because that was where I had heard the message that the Creator loved us and that HE had put a plan in place to bring us back into right relationship with HIMSELF. And although segments of the Christian Church still hold to the essential truth of the message of salvation, there has yet been suffered in large part a falling away from the faith once established in Scripture, the faith which serves as the spiritual blueprint for the Temple of ELOHIM (GOD) “having been built on the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Christ Jesus, Himself being the cornerstone” (Ephesians 2:20)
While many are looking for the “falling away” of the Church to occur as a future “last-days” event or one that has just started in recent years…I believe that when we give careful consideration to Scripture and avail ourselves to Church history, we find that a serious departure from the faith occurred in 325 A.D., when the Congregation of ELOHIM (GOD) again went into captivity unto the Roman Empire (as prophesied by the Prophet Daniel)…with the Roman Emperor Constantine (who became the first Pope) seizing hegemony through collusion at the Nicene Councils. Furthermore, as a point of clarity, although Catholic in inception, there are certain key principle ruptures from the fabric of the Faith which were never protested by the Protestants…therefore, the err from Scripture pervades both Catholicism and Protestantism.
Emperor Constantine, as the conquering politician of the World, sought to unify his subjects under his rule thereby securing his position as ruler over such a vast and diverse empire. I am sad to say that in the Book of Revelations, reference is made to “Mystery Babylon”…the word Babylon means “confusion (by mixing)” Strong’s #H894 and #G897…I believe that the condition of blending Biblical principles with pagan religion aptly describes the Religion that boasts of being freed from GOD’S Law unto Lawlessness and calls itself by the totality of it’s doctrine, Christianity–”Judeo Christian”, “the Gospel of Inclusion,” “the Prosperity Gospel,” “Christian Zionism,” and “Talmudic Judaism” in some Messianic circles…along with various other doctrinal departures from the pure Seed of the WORD of ELOHIM … and YAHUAH is saying “Come out from among them and be set-apart…touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.” (2 Corinthians 6:17, also Isaiah 52:11 and Revelations 18:4)... HE does have a remnant that will indeed hear HIS voice and obey HIS calling…May we be counted amongst HIS faithful when HE returns…which does not appear to be far off…
“comes 8″…New Beginnings
May this site serve as a platform for seeking and sharing the Truth of Scripture… untethered by the Traditions of man; thereby, Returning to True Worship…and in finding the true roots of the Olive Tree, may we grow together in the grace and knowledge of YAHUAH’s Mashiyach (the LORD’s Christ).
Furthermore, may I take this opportunity to encourage you to leave your comments and your questions…they are most welcomed…as it is with our interchange, that we facilitate a forum whereby we search the Scriptures together, fueled by the directive of The WORD to examine ourselves to see that we be in the faith…we do so with the diligence for Truth displayed by the Bereans…as we show love… one for the other, in sharing that supply of Mashiyach (Christ) which has been granted us, for the building of HIS Body.
Now, briefly concerning the name of this site. Several years ago, YAHUAH spoke to my heart, “3rdDay7Comes8″…at first, I didn’t understand the meaning. Then shortly thereafter, the picture of Salvation portrayed in those numbers was progressively revealed to me through seeing patterns of how certain numbers are used in Scripture. Essentially, we are saved (3rdDay)–that which happens when our spirit is raised from the deadness of sin and regenerated and connected to HIS HOLY SET APART SPIRIT. We are being saved (Day7)– which makes reference to the working out of our own salvation, so that, that which has happened in our spirits is spread to our souls and we are transformed by entering into HIS rest because it’s no longer us doing the works but rather it is HIM at work in us empowering both to will and to do HIS WORD. So we rest (Sabbath) from our own labors. And we shall yet be saved (Comes8)–YAHUSHA (JESUS) said, “Behold I make all things new”, Revelations 21:5. Interestingly, Day 8 is really Day 1 because there are only 7 days…and fittingly Day 8 speaks of new beginnings…(circumscion occurs on the 8th day)…the future event whereby that which first occurred in our spirits serving to quicken our spirits, bringing life to our spirits; must spread to our souls that our salvation be made manifest in our glorified bodies, (although, some measure of the glorification of HIS WORD in our bodies is rendered to us even now in miraculous healings and other displays of HIS power. Now, those who hold fast to the philosophy of Sunday being the day of Sabbath rest are skipping the 7th Day of rest and going from Egypt to the Promisedland in one failed swoop. Further discussion is given to this topic in related articles on the site.
Also, there are lots of pictures on this site, because The Word of YAHUAH is very picturesque; indeed HE captures our imaginations by explaining the invisible Truths of Eternity by using the visible, material things that are bound by time as examples…Therefore, we have presented to us pictures and patterns and numbers throughout Scripture as mechanisms of revelation of the invisible realm of the spirit.
HIS Word is rich with discovery…so let us go forth in Proverbs 25:2, “It is the glory of Elohim (GOD) to conceal a matter but the glory of kings to search out a matter.” As we regain our bearings in Truth, we are giving glory to the King of Glory…
Thus, giving Glory and Honor to HE who is Worthy–The ONE, True and Living ELOHIM (GOD), who even though HE has myriads of angels at HIS Command…any one of which HE could have sent at HIS behest…but rather, HE, HIMSELF who is DIVINE MAJESTY, thought it not robbery that HE, HIMSELF step out of Heaven, having prepared for HIMSELF a coat of flesh in order that HE may save HIS Creation. HE is Worthy of True Worship…Bless HIS NAME Forevermore!
Therefore, it is my sincere prayer that any time spent in browsing this site serves to bless you with a reminder of the Sovereign Power and Authority…yet great Grace and Mercy of the MOST HIGH ELOHIM, THE CREATOR, HIS NAME YAHUAH…He shall forever be praised!
For YAHUAH (YHWH) Saves…YAHUAH (YHWH) Delivers…YAHUAH (YHWH) makes Whole and Complete in the Person of our SAVIOR and soon coming KING YAHUSHA, The Mashiyach (JESUS, the Christ)… who showed us
Baruch HaShem…Bless The NAME !
There are those whose religious doctrine has determined that women should not preach or teach unless they are preaching to and teaching other women. I wonder if that same doctrine extends to children and dictates that children only preach to and teach other children. If so, that doctrine, like any other doctrine of man, which is not according to Scripture, is still not able to change the Truth. The message delivered below is a timely message for young and old alike. It is indeed, a message delivered by an awesomely anointed Messenger of YAHUAH (the LORD) our ELOHIM (GOD) with great power and in accordance to HIS WORD,
” But this is that which was spoken by the Prophet Joel; and it shall come to pass, in the last days says ELOHIM (GOD), I will pour out MY Spirit upon all flesh, your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams. And on MY male servants and on MY female servants, I shall pour MY Spirit in those days, and they shall prophesy.” Acts 2:16-18
Throughout this site you will find many of YAH’s awesomely anointed Psalmists singing praises and declaring
HIS WORD in exhortation, comfort and edification of the Body of MESSIAH in prophetic worship unto HIS NAME …
Be Blessed !!!
