Philemon — “Favour to You and peace from Elohim our Father and the Master Yahusha Messiah”

Philemon

1. 1. Sha’ul, a prisoner of Messiah Yahusha Anointed One and Timothy the brother, to Philemon our beloved one and fellow worker,

2. and Apphia our sister and Archeppos our fellow soldier and the assembly at your house:

3. Favour to you and peace from Elohim our Father and the Master Yahusha Anointed One.

4. I always thank my Elohim when I mention you in my prayers,’6. hearing of your love and the belief which you have toward the Master Yahusha Anointed One and toward all the set-apart ones.

6. so that the sharing of your belief might become working in the knowledge of all the good which is in you toward Messiah Yahusha Anointed One.

7. For we have much joy and encouragement in your love, because the tender affections of the set-apart ones have been refreshed by you, brother.

8. Therefore, although I have much boldness in Messiah to command you what is fitting,

9. because of love, I rather appeal — being such a one as Sha’ul, the aged and now also a prisoner of Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

10. I appeal to you for my child Onesimos, whom I brought forth while in my chains,

11. who formerly was of no use to you, but now is of good use to you and to me,

12. whom I wished to keep with me, that on your behalf he might serve me in my chains for the Besorah.

14. But without your opinion I wished to do none at all, so that your good deed should not be by the way of necessity, but voluntary.

15. For he parted from you for a while, possibly because of this, so that you might have him back forever,

16. no longer as a slave, but more that a slave — as a beloved brother — especially to me, and how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Master.

17. So, if you regard me as your partner, receive him as you would me.

18. But, if he has wronged you or owes you whatever, put that on my account.

19. I, Sha’ul, wrote with my own hand. I shall repay — not to mention to you that you, indeed, owe yourself to me also.

20. Yea, brother, let me derive pleasure from you in the Master, refresh my tender affections in the Master.

21. Trusting in your obedience, I wrote to you, knowing that you shall do even more than I say.

22. And at the same time, also prepare a place for me to stay, for I trust that through your prayers, I shall be given to you.

23. Epaphras, fellow prisoner of me in Messiah Yahusha Anointed One, greets you,

24. and Mark, Aristarchos, Demas, Luke, my fellow workers.

25. The favour of our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah be with your spirit. Amen (pronounced Amein [awe-main])

Origins and Definitions of Words; Holy, Hallowed, Sacred, Sanctified, Bible, Grace, Luck, Lucifer, Divine, Divinity, Deity, Theos, God, Christ, Jesus, Church, LORD, Gospel

The following are the origins and definitions of words and names that Christianity has adopted into its vocabulary — much of it related to Pagan sovereigns that trace their roots back to Babylon and the Trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis — while at the same time Christianity refuses to reveal and proclaim the Name above all names, and His Father’s Name, YHWH, and the true names Elohim gave his prophets and others in the Scriptures of Elohim.

The Hebrew word qodesh and the equivalent Greek word hagios, together with their derivatives, have been translated with one of three words, or derivatives, in our older English versions, namely: holy, hallowed, or sanctified. Another word is also used in modern versions, and generally in ecclesiastical literature, namely: sacred. Most of us have the idea that this word has the meaning of piety, or being pious, or to be devout. However, this conception is refuted when we read in Isa. 66:17 of the idolatrous people “who sanctify (qadash) themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens after an idol in the midst, eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse…” This refutation of the incorrect idea that “holy” means “to be pious”, is further confirmed by the shocking discovery that one of the Hebrew words for a harlot (whore) is qedeshah, a derivative of qadash! Likewise, a male prostitute (or sodomite) is called a qadesh in Hebrew. This then causes us to seek for the real meaning of the word qodesh (its verb being qadash) and its Greek equivalent hagios. The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, vol. 2, p. 817, summarises what most authorities say about qodesh and hagios, “…the meaning of ‘separation’ is paramount…the more elemental meaning seems to lie with ‘separation’.” The same dictionary, in vol. 4, p.210, says, “The basic sense of the Hebrew root qadash, as of its Greek equivalent in the Bible—hagios, seems to be ‘separateness‘.” Likewise, Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words repeatedly emphasises the fact of the fundamental meaning of the word to be: “separation” (see under “holiness” and “sanctification”). With the discovery of the true meaning of this word, namely, separate and separation, we can now understand why qodesh is used in a positive sense, a good sense, and that it can equally be used in a negative and evil sense. Someone is, or something is separated unto YHWH, or he/it is separated unto evil. Thus, the word qodesh applies to both.

Why then, if the Hebrew word qodesh as well as the Greek hagios both mean “separation, why has the word “holy” been used instead? Is it possible that the father of all lies, the Great Deceiver, had cunningly proceeded with his master plan of bringing idolatrous worship into True Worship? Indeed, we do find evidence of his veiled, his hidden, his mysterious work. In The Oxford English Dictionary, vol. 5, p. 345, under “Holy”, we read, “…the primitive pre-Christian meaning is uncertain…Its earlier application to heathen deities is found in ON [Old Norse].” Likewise, we read in the big Netherland’s Woordenboek der Nederlandsche Taal, vol. 6, p. 455 (I translate), “An explanation of the original meaning, that makes it clear as to how this adjective has obtained the meaning of the Latin sanctus, has not yet been given — For speculations, see e.g. KLUGE, FRANCK AND MURRAY.” But we did discover the origin of the word “holy”. In G. Jobes, Dictionary of Mythology Folklore and Symbols, p. 781, we read, “HOLY: In practically all languages, the word for holy has been derived from the divinely honored sun.” We found confirmation in Forlong’s Encyclopedia of Religions, as follows, “HOLI: The Great Hindu spring festival…held in honour of Krishna, as the spring sun-god…a personified woman called Holi…Holi had tried to poison the babe Krishna…” Further revealing evidence was yet to come. In Strong’s Concordance, in the Greek Lexicon No. 1506, we found the following: “heile (the sun’s ray)”—this is pronounced: heilei. This form is almost identical to the German and Dutch equivalent of the English “holy”. The meaning of “halo“, the ring on top of a saint’s head, now became clear to us. And this was confirmed in J.C. Cooper, An Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Traditional Symbols, p. 112, “NIMBUS, HALO, or AUREOLE: Originally indicative of solar power and the sun’s disk, hence an attribute of sun-gods.”

The truth of this most disturbing find stunned us. We simply could not handle it. Gradually we came to understand. The Great Deceiver will not make the mistake of diverting the worship towards himself. By just diverting it to the innocent sun, Satan would succeed in his master plan by firstly veiling, and then bringing into the Temple the “wicked abomination”, as Elohim had called this Sun-mixed worship (Eze. 8:9-16). It is well known how pictures of our Messiah, of Mary, and of a great number of saints were adorned with a sun-disc (nimbus), or halo, or sun-rays, thereby identifying him/her with the Sun-deity

With the word “holy” being applied to the Spirit of YHWH, called in Hebrew Ruach ha Qodesh, the enormous challenge was put to us: Can we continue to use the word “Holy Spirit”? Ruach ha Qodesh simply means: “The Spirit of Separation”? Can we continue bringing homage to the Sun, once the truth has been revealed to us, and be found guilty of participating in the “wicked abominations” of Eze. 8:9-16?

In the Scriptures we are warned of Job’s similar predicament in Job 31 :26-28, in which Job warns us of this “an iniquity worthy of judgment, for I would have denied Elohim who is above.” Have we not been warned in Jer. 10:2, “Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; do not be dismayed (awed) at the signs of heaven for the Gentiles are dismayed (awed) at them.”? Can we ignore the disastrous result of Israel’s disobedience to the Law which caused Elohim to have “turned and gave them up to worship the host of heaven,” Acts 7:42? We who have entered into the New [Covenant], having the Law of YHWH written into our hearts (Heb. 8:10 and 10:16), can we delight in His Law, His Words? Do we accept His warning which comes to us in Deut.4:19, “And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you fee driven to worship them and serve them, which YHWH your Elohim has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage”? If it has been revealed to US having been led by the Spirit of Truth, that the word “holy” has been derived from the…sun can we ignore it? In direct contrast to this “sun-origin” of the word “holy”, the Hebrew qodesh and the Greek hagios have nothing to do with the sun or sun-rays at all. The Spirit of Truth put the challenge before us: If we love Him Who first loved us, we will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. If we love the Spirit of YHWH, we will call Him: The Spirit of Separation, and not “the spirit of the sun”. The former is the truth, the latter is a lie if it is meant to be a translation of Ruach ha Qodesh. If the term “spirit of the sun” is devoid of all Scriptural truth, how much more is the term “spirit of the divinely honoured sun”?—or “the spirit that solarises”, or “the solarised spirit”?

Identical to the above is another derivative of this word originating from the “divinely honoured sun.” In our versions the word “hallowed” is also a translation of qodesh or qadash, and hagiazo. The word is also found in “halloween” or “Hallow-even”, an old pagan British festival which was adopted by the church. The great Sun-image of the Krom-druach was specially worshipped at this season.119 Here again, this word “hallowed” in our versions should be “koshered” to read: “separated“.

Although this word is not found in the King James Version, it has been used in some instances in the more recent English versions (e.g. Moffatt’s Translation, NIV, GNB, NASB) to translate the Hebrew qodesh and the Greek hagios. In the literature and preaching of the churches, however, it is frequently used, as well as in the word “sacrament”. Much of the English language, which is one of the Indo-European languages, viz. Sanskrit. Similarly, the English word “sacred” can be traced back to the Sanskrit “Sakra”. What or who was “Sakra”? Larousse, World Mythology, pp. 229, 233, reveals to us that Indra was one of the 12 forms of the Sun-[sovereign], and that he was also known as: “Sakra”. This startling information is found in other sources too.120 In this [sovereign], and in the twelfth form, he is called: Mitra, the origin of the later Persian and Roman Mithra or Mithras, who at first was only associated with the Sun-[sovereign], but later on became the Sun-[sovereign] himself as Sol Invictus, the unconquered Sun-[sovereign].

Another word that translates the Hebrew qodesh and the Greek hagios, is the word “sanctified”, which, according to the dictionaries, originates from the Latin ‘sanctus.’ According to Pauly-Wissowa, Realencyclopaedie, under “Sanctus”, the primary meaning and origin is not certain. However, this article quotes a source mentioning Santus as a [sovereign], named deus sanctus, and also states that Sanctus was often used as an epithet or surname of (See also this same book’s entry: “Sancus”). Augustine in his ‘City of God’,121 reveals to us that the Sabine chief [sovereign], Sancus, was called by some: Sanctus. In the Realencyclopaedie, under “Sancus”, we read of a statue of Sancus, representing an archaic type of Apollo, the great Sun-[sovereign]. At the end of the article it states that, originally, Semo Sancus was Jupiter itself. Another cognate form Sancius was also identified as Jupiter.

Although we have fewer witnesses here than in the case against the words “holy”, “sacred” and “hallow”, we still have enough evidence that “Sancuts was the name of a pagan deity, even identified with Jupiter and Apollo. Another “wicked abomination“, in the form of the words “sanctified” and “sanctuary”, had been fused with the pure Messianic Faith, and we must eliminate them. 

This precious book, the Scriptures, that we dedicatedly love, is called “Scriptures” whenever the book is spoken of as a whole. This was the name given to it by Yahushúa and His apostles, and once by Daniel in Dan. 10:21. We find it designated as such in no less than 54 places, of which, therefore, 53 appear in the New Testament. “Scripture” was the word used by Luther as a designating title for his German translation of the Scriptures. It is true that parts of Scripture, or individual books, are called “books” or “scrolls”, which arebiblos or biblion in Greek. But biblos or biblion both only refer to individual books or sections of the Scriptures, and is nowhere used Scripture to designate the complete writ, the Scriptures.

This word for the Scriptures was not used in the first few centuries of this era, and was first used ca. 400 C.E.217. Thus, this designation for the Scriptures was a later introduction. Why then was the Scriptural designation for the complete book, namely “Scriptures”, substituted with the Hellenized word, “Bible”? The common story that has been told us, is that biblion, or plural biblia, denotes any kind of written document, originally written on papyrus. This Egyptian papyrus reed cam from Egypt and was imported through the Phoenician seaport Gebal, which the Greeks called Byblos or Byblus. This seaport Byblos was the home of the Phoenician Sun-[sovereign], according to S.H. Langdon, Mythology of All Races, vol. V. p. 351. This seaport or city was also known to be a city which was founded by Baal Chronos, as well as the real seat of Adonis, 218 where a large temple of Adonis once proudly stood. The Isis and Osiris could, both Sun-[sovereigns], also became popular in this city later on.218 Further evidence was found when we read that, “The Sun-god is associated with the ‘Lady of Byblos‘ in a letter from Tell el-Amarna (116:65, Kn.).”219 In our research, up to this point, we were suspicious, but had no proof or incriminating evidence. and then, it was revealed to us. W.H. Roscher in his Ausfuhrliches Lexikon der Griechischen und Romishen Mythologie, vol. 1, pp. 839-840, states that this ancient city Byblos in Phoenicia, as well as the city Byblis, in Egypt, was named after the female [sovereign] BYBLIS, also called BYBLE, also called BIBLIS! This female [sovereign] was the grand-daughter of Apollo, the well-known Greek Sun-[sovereign]!220 Moreover – pagan worship was generally known to have some sensuality to draw the carnal minds of the masses. And here again, we find that this female [sovereign], Biblis, was described as nymph (Gilbert Meadows, An Illustrated Dictionary of Classical Mythology, as well as Edward Tripp, Crowell’s Handbook of Classical Mythology, both under “Byblis”). This very book, the Scriptures, which we so dearly love and cherish, has been given a name derived from the female [sovereign] who was the grand-daughter of the Sun-[sovereign], Apollo.

We then understood the great sign given to John in Revelation 12, the Sun-clothed woman. Indeed, the faith of the New [Covenant], originating from the pure Hebrew Faith, had become clothed with Sun-worship. Because the Church had rejected the Eternal [Covenant]…just like Old Testament Israel so often did (as described in Acts 7:38 to 42), therefore the same verdict came upon us: “The Mighty One turned and gave them up to worship the host of heaven…” The Church was mixed with, and fused with sun-worship, to such an extent, that The Mighty One gave her up to receive the name derived from CIRCE, the daughter of the Sun-[sovereign], and that her most precious heritage, the Scriptures, became clothed with a cover on which is a name derived from the grand-daughter of the Sun-[sovereign] Apollo, namely : BYBLE or BYBLIS or BIBLIS.

At this point you may ask: But the word biblos, meaning “book”, is in the Greek New Testament; it is an innocent word, simply meaning “book”? The reply to this is: Firstly, “Bible” almost identically resembles the name of this female deity, Byble, while it resembles less the Greek biblos, biblion, or biblia. And secondly, there are quite a number of other Greek word in the Greek New Testament which are derived from, or, later on given to, idol’s names. Whether they were derived from, or later given to, idol’s name, can be disputed, but the former was the case in the vast majority of instances. A thorough study of the subject impresses upon us the ancient existence of these names of pagan [sovereigns].

Hebrew was the only heavenly language spoken from Sinai, and all of Israel heard and understood it. Again, in the New Testament we read how Yahushúa spoke to the apostle Paul on the road to Damascus in the Hebrew language, Acts 26: 14. On the other hand, Greek, like all the languages of the nations, was a pagan language, its vocabulary being in existence long before the Glad Tidings reached them. Like all the languages of the pagan nations, its vocabulary consisted of many names of their [sovereigns]. The reason? They were not guided by the Law of YHWH that prohibited His people, “Make no mention of the names of other mighty ones, nor let it be heard from your mouth,” Exod. 23;13. Even after the Greeks and other pagan nations heard the Glad Tidings, and accepted the Messiah, the majority of them were anti-Judaistic, some little and some much, and therefore did not have the same reverence for the Law that was given in the Old Testament, as was expected from Israel, and from us too. Secondly, in their enthusiasm to win converts, they did compromise much. This is called “syncretism“.

b) Charis – In the Hebrew of the Old Testament we find a very common word Chen, which simply means: favour. This word Chen was correctly rendered “favour” in the Old Testament of the American translations (American Standard Version, New American Standard Bible, Smith-Goodspeed Translation, Rotherham Version, New International Version, New World Translation), as well as in the English Ferrar Fenton Translation and New English bible. However, when this same word is used in the Greek of the New Testament, we find the word charis. This word was also known as grace, better known in its Latin form gratia.

From the English word “grace”, “charismatic” and “charity” have come to us. Why was the generally accepted rendering “favour” (unmerited favour) not extended into the New Testament as well? The New Testament is based on the Old Testament is it not? The New Testament is but a continuation of the Old Testament. Its authors were Hebrews, they spoke Aramaic and or Hebrew, just like the authors of the Old Testament. Why then was a foreign word introduced which was unashamedly adopted from (or identified with) the name of a female deity? Yes, any dictionary or encyclopaedia will verify this. This Greek deity’s name, Charis, is found in the Greek New Testament, no less than 127 times, translated as “grace” in the English translations instead of “favour”, as it should have been, and as has correctly been done, indeed, in 6 places in the King James Version’s New Testament, namely, Luke 1:30, Luke 2:52, Acts 2:47, Acts 7:10, Acts 7:46, and Acts 25:3. Who was this Charis? She was the wife of Hephaistos the fire-[sovereign].221 She is identified with Aphrodite, both being names for the glistening dawn similar to the Sanskrit Ushas,221 the Dawn [sovereign] of the Indians, similar to the Greek Eos and daughter of Zeus and Here.222 In the plural form, Charites, we find the commonly known “Three Charites” or “Three Graces”, three pretty young female [sovereigns], either stark naked or else very scantily dressed,223 being the three daughters of Helios, the Sun-[sovereign].223

Before we proceed to this “luck” as a word, we would like to emphasis the fact that the idea of “luck” in itself is totally unScriptural, just like “fortune”. This is the reprimand of Isa. 65:11, namely, that “good luck” and “fortune” are being relied on, instead of us relying on YHWH . We should be entirely dependent on His blessings, which we can only receive from him if we live a life dedicated to Him and in obedience to His Word — His Son.

The word “Luck”, derived from a name for the Sun-[sovereign], is not found as such in the older English translations of the Scriptures, but the words “lucky” and “un-lucky” appear seven times in the Good New Bible. However, it is most frequently used in our everyday language. In the German, Netherlands and Afrikaans versions the word is used indeed as gluck or geluk, the latter, and probably the former too, being a word derived from the original form, luk. This fact can be verified in Woordenboek der Nederlandsche Taal, vol. VIII, part II, pp. 3304 – 3306. We read here that luk was originally a vox media, a spiritistic medium. Also, that luk was also written luck, luc, lucke, lok, lock (pp. 3304 and 3306). On p. 3305 it states that Luk was also the name of a “personified Goddess of Luck.” In The Oxford English Dictionary, vol. VII, p. 486, we read that the ultimate etymology of “Luck” or middle High Dutch gelucke, or Middle High German gelucke, is “obscure”. Walshe, a Concise German Etymological Dictionary, under “Gluck”, also states that the origin of this word is obscure. So, once again, “the [sovereign] of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4), Satan, has blinded the eyes, has deceived the whole world (Rev. 12:9).

The common everyday saying “One for luck“, is most probably just a continuation of the old pagan Nordic expression, “One for god and one for Wod (Wodin or Wodan), and one for Lok“, of which we read of in Karl Helm, Altgermanische Religions geschichte, p. 265. Please remember that the above quoted Netherlands dictionary stated that luck, luk and lok are just different spellings for the same word. Forlong, Encyclopedia of Religions, vol. 2, p. 463, says that Luk is an ancient root for “light” and related to Loki. In Gray’s Mythology of All Races, vol. IX, p. 253, we read of “Luk the highest deity, as he was known in the Caroline Islands.” Jobes, Dictionary of Mythology Folklore and Symbols, on p. 1024, states that Luk was the highest primordial deity of the Caroline Islands. On the same page we read of “Lug, the Sun-deity himself” and again of “Lugus, Gaelic Sun-deity.” Jacob Grimm, Teutonic Mythology, reveals more of the obscure origin of this mysterious [sovereign]. The names Logi and Loki were merged in times of old.225 He further points out the apparent roots for these names to be: lucere, luken.226 He also reveals that Locke was the Danish for the burning sun, and the Jutland’s Lokke was the heat of the sun, and that “Loki, is by turns taken…for sun, fire, giant or devil.”226 Luka was also known as the fire-[sovereign], as we read on p. 242.

What does the word “Lucifer” basically mean? All dictionaries tell us it means luc or luci, plus fer or ferre, that means: light-bringer. According to some mythologists, Lucifer was the son of Zeus (Sky-[sovereign])and Eos (Dawn-[sovereign]).227 In the King James Version we read only once of Lucifer, and that is in Isa. 14:12 where the king of Babylon is called: Lucifer. This was taken over from the Latin Vulgate, and many scholars prefer to use other words which more correctly translate the Hebrew Helel, pronounced: Hailail or Heileil. This word basically means “the shining one” or “the bright one”. Apart from the interpretation of this king of Babylon as being “Lucifer”, we find some calling him “morning star”. Others, with good documented evidence, believe that Helel (Heileil) is Jupiter…which later became the sun-[sovereign], also called Marduk-Jupiter228 – Marduk being the well-known Babylonian Sun-[sovereign]. J.W. McKay made a thorough study of this Helel in his article, Helel and the Dawn-[sovereignness], in Vetus Testamentum, XX (1970), pp. 451-464, and he also mentions the strong evidence for Helel (Heileil) being the Sun-deity or being Jupiter. According to Isa. 14:12, Helel is the son of Dawn or Daybreak. Most pagan nations have the myth of the female Dawn-[sovereign] giving her birth to her son, the Sun-[sovereign]. Thus, this Scripture reveals to us that the “king of Babylon” is indeed the Shining One, the Sun, or Jupiter. We must remember that the [sovereigns] of Babylon were made kings, and also that their kings were named after their [sovereigns], who were (in almost all cases) Sun-[sovereigns]. We must not be misled by any man-made interpretation of Isa.14. The emphasis is on the “king of Babylon” and not on Satan. The [sovereignness of the] Sun may be a symbol of — or even an adopted guise — of Satan. It could be that Satan used the Sun to catch the masses with, and to detract YHWH’s people from their Creator, the One who is to be worshiped — the One who created the sun. The sun is to be regarded only as part of the creation, and nothing more — and certainly not to be worshiped. Identifying Lucifer with Satan is an idea that came later.

Let us first see what and who this Helel (Heileil, Hailail) of Isa. 14:12 is. In verse 4 he is called “the king of Babylon”. This Shining One, Heileil, is the one who has said in his heart, “I will ascend into heave, I will exalt my throne above the stars of The Mighty One; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation…I will be like the Most High.”

We should therefore repent of the idea of depending on “luck”, of wishing one another “good luck” (the GD of Isa. 65:11), and should rather speak of the blessing, and seek the blessing, of YHWH. Also, the revealed evidence of the Sun- or Sky-[sovereign] being the origin of Luk, Lok, Luck, Lug, Loki and Lucifer, should inspire us to worship the Father in the Spirit and in Truth, John 4:23-24. We should also be alerted to the Scriptural revelation of Helel (Heileil), the Shining One, being the King of Babylon, and rather seek to serve the “King of the Jews” – the title which was given to our Messiah and which is found no less than 18 times in Scripture!

The Hebrew word “The Mighty One” (as well as “el” and “eloah”), has been translated theos in Greek, similar to the related dios in Greek, deus in Latin, related to the similar dius and divus in Latin.134 The Latin dies (day) also originates from the same word, namely, dieu or its related deieu and diuos. 134 Related to this are the Greek Dieus or Zeus, the Teutonic Ziu, the Roman Diovis or Jovis, and the Roman equal of Zeus, namely Jupiter, formed from Dies-piter.135 Most linguists trace these words back to the Vedic deva, corresponding to the Latin deus, meaning “bright”, and the Indo-European Djeus, also meaning “bright” or “shining”. And this Djeus gave rise to the Old Indian Dyaus and Greek Zeus.136 Dr. A.B. Cook, Zeus – A Study in Ancient Religion, vol. II, p. 276, relates that Hellenic names which are derived from Zeus, e.g. Diodoros, Diogenes, Diomedes, have for their element Dio- and others have Deo-or Deos. Jacob Grimm, Teutonic Mythology, translated by J. Stallybrass, chapter IX, traces all these words back to “the root div, which, while enabling us to make up a fuller formula div, tiv, zio yield the meanings ‘brightness, sky, day, god’. Of sanskrit words, dyaus stands the closest to the Greek and German gods’ names Zeus, Tius.” Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, p. 16, relates, “Deva…is derived from the Sanskrit Div, ‘to shine’…when Sun-worship was engrafted on the Patriarchal faith, the visible splendour of the deified luminary might be suggested by the name.” In the same book, pp. 323 and 20, we read that Demeter, the Great Mother, was called Deo by Sophocles, and she was the mother of Bacchus. Bacchus, the Sun-[sovereign], is also identified with Attes, the son of Cybele, and Attes was also known as Deoius. On p. 95 we also read that the Moon-god was known as Deus Lunus. The feminine Moon-[sovereignness] was also known as Diana.137

With the root div or deva or diu all meaning “bright”, or to “shine”, it is easy to comprehend the heathen nations’ affinity for, and worship of, the Sun, the bright sky, the Sky-deity – the deity that brings the day of daylight. These roots are still found in the English words “divine”, divinity” and deity” – all derived from the bright Sky-deity or Sun-deity. Does it matter? Yes, if the ancient tribes called their mighty ones: Deva, Dyaus, or anything similar, traceable to the Sky-[sovereign], or Sun-[sovereign], we should eliminate from our vocabulary the words “divine” and “deity”, which we have erroneously been taught to apply to the One that we love and His Son. He commanded us, “make no mention of the name of other mighty ones, not let it be heard from your mouth,” Exod. 23:13. Secondly, the word “The Mighty One” means: mighty one, just as “The Mighty One” means Mighty One, and it has nothing to do with “shining” or “brightness” or “daylight” or “day” or “sky”. Thirdly, we should be careful not to fall away from the True Worship, namely, worshiping YHWH, and His Son. We must be in the Eternal Covenant with the Law of YHWH written into our hearts — and written in our minds, Heb. 8:10 and 10:16. If not, the same destiny will be our heritage, as we are warned of, “Then The Mighty One turned and gave them up to worship the host of heaven,” Acts 7:42.

Donaldson in his New Cratylus points out that “Th” is frequently pronounced as “Dh” in Greek, thus Theos and Dheos could be the same, if only in pronunciation. Further, B.C. Dietrich, The Origin of Greek Religion, p. 288, reveals to us a pair of deities, Theos and Thea. This proves that Theos is not only a title, but also the name of a Greek idol. The origin of the word (or name) Theos is disputed, but Prof. F. Max Muller feels very strongly that “Theos must remain part of the same cluster of words a Zeus, Dios, Dione,…Sanskrit Dyaus, Deva, Latin Jupiter, Diovis, Jovis, Diana, Deus, Lithuanian diva, Old Netherlands tivar…The Greek Theos, if not derived from the root div, has found no other root as yet from which it could have been derived, so as to account for its meaning, as well as its form.”138

Although the word Theos is admittedly mostly used as a title, it has been used as a name, and therefore we dare not call our The Mighty One by the name of a pagan mighty one, Exod. 23:13. But even as a title, the word theos is not acceptable, even if it does appear in the Greek New Testament. There are many scholars who are convinced that most of the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew or Aramaic, and that the Greek New Testament is only a translation of the Hebrew/Aramaic original. Other scholars have been less radical and have proposed that, if the New Testament was originally written in Greek, our oldest manuscripts contain substitutions in its rewritten form, because of the evidence that the Tetragrammaton was used in the original New Testament, but has since then been substituted in the oldest extant manuscripts. The Tetragrammaton has been substituted in texts of the New Testament which are quoted from the Old Testament. Sometimes it is substituted by Kurios, such as Matt. 21:9 (quoted from Ps. 118:26), or substituted by Theos, such as Matt. 4:4 (quoted from Deut. 8:3). However, for the most part, Theos is used in the New Testament as a translation of the Hebrew The Mighty One (or el or eloah), such as Heb. 1:9 (quoted from Ps. 45:7). The word theos should not have been used, because, in many instances this word as a title has been used as a substitute for the Name of YHWH, and this is explicitly forbidden in Deut. 4:2 and Deut. 12:4. Secondly, the word The Mighty One means: Mighty One, whereas Theos is probably derived from the root div (see above), which means: to shine. Thirdly, the word theos has been used as an important means of merging Zeus-worship with the Messianic Worship. Dr. A.B. Cook in his monumental research on Zeus – A Study in Ancient Religion, vol. I, p. 233, remarks on how “the gentiles conceived Jehovah (as Cook called Him) as Zeus.” Zeus was also called Theos, for instance, and Zeus Hypsistos was also known as Theos Hypsistos (pp. 882, 883, 884, 886, 969).

With the Jewish tradition of hiding YHWH’s Name and the Greeks calling all mighty ones theoi (plural of theos), the assimilation and merger of the two mighty ones was made easier – especially if they both can be identified as being “the Great Sky-deity”, or both can be identified as the Sun. We have already seen how the Patriarchs of Alexandria and Rome began calling Yahushúa “The Sun of Righteousness”, even “the True Sun“. By that time all the idols of the mediterranean countries were identified with the Sun -Apollo, Hercules, Adonis, Mithras, Dionysus, Serapis, Osiris, Horus, Jupiter, Zeus, Hades, Helios, Sol, Oannes, Hermes, Bacchus, Attis, Orpheus, Ixion, Amen, Amen-Ra etc.

It is well known that at some stage the Greeks were trying to identify all the idols with Zeus. It is also known that for a long time, they were avoiding the names of their idols by just calling them by the title, or generic name, theos. In L.H. Gray’s Mythology of All Races, vol. 1, p. 312, we read, “Only in a few localities, notably in Crete, does any form of the name of Zeus survive, but the god still lives under the title Theos (‘God’), a title so conveniently equivocal that the Christian can use it without heresy and at the same time square perfectly with the ancient pagan belief.” What a clear testimony of religious syncretism! Our Mighty One, or His Son, is called Theos, and so is Zeus called Theos. What does it matter? Just this: the words Theos and Zeus are derived from the Sky-[sovereign] or the Sun-[sovereign], and therefore unacceptable to our Mighty One.

Any form of Sun-worship, or any derivative of Sun-worship which has been adopted into Pure Worship, has been designated by Him to be a “wicked abomination“, Eze. 8:9. Apart from Prof. F. Max Muller’s statement as to the origin of the word “Zeus” (see above), we also read Dr. A.B. Cook’s scholarly conclusion, “The supreme deity of the ancient Greeks, during their historical period at least, was Zeus. His name, referable to a root that means ‘to shine’ may be rendered ‘the Bright One‘. And since a whole series of related words in the various languages of the Indo-European family is used to denote ‘day’ or ‘sky’, it can be safely inferred that Zeus was called ‘the Bright One’ as being the god of the bright or day-light sky.”139 Dr. Cook then says in a foot note on the same page, “The Greek Zeus and the Old Indian Dyaus represent an Indo-European dieu-s from the root di: die : deia, ‘to shine’.” Later on, as we have previously mentioned, Zeus became more directly identified with the Sun. Osiris, the Sun-[sovereign] of Egypt, was later identified with Serapis, the Sun-[sovereign] in Alexandria. Helios, of course, was the Sun-[sovereign] of the Greeks. Zeus was identified with all of them, and the phrase “Zeus Helios Great Serapis” was well known to be an exceedingly common formula in the 2nd and 3rd centuries C.E. 140

Many scholars have pointed out the similarity between Zeus-worship and Serapis-worship, as both were identified with the Sun-[sovereign]. But more so, the Serapis statues most resemble those of Zeus.141 Serapis, the Sun-idol of Alexandria – the same city where Clement and Origen were leaders of the “first theological seminary” – was assimilated to all other Sun-[sovereigns].141 The christian apologist Minucius Felix, writing in the 2nd or 3rd century, comments that this Egyptian (Alexandrian) cult of Serapis has been completely adopted by the Romans.142 Not only did the statues of Zeus and Serapis resemble each other, but we, like others,143 are alarmed at the striking similarity between these statues and that of the images of our Messiah which have been made by the Church! 

Further evidence of the fusion of the worship of Yahushúa with that of Serapis comes from the historical record of the Roman emperor Hadrian who worshiped Serapis as well as Christ when he visited Alexandria.144 But, even worse, whenever a Christian church was erected on the site of the Serapeum (temple of Serapis), Jerome would exclaim, “The Egyptian Serapis has become Christian!”145 Such was the spirit of syncretism, of identifying pagan idols with Yahushúa.

Instead of “deity”, “divinity”, or “god”, we should use the Scriptural “The Mighty One” or “mighty one” or “mighty”. This latter word, which is an adjective, could well be used as a noun. Instead of “divine”, we should say “as of The Mighty One”, or “as of the Mighty One”, or “Mighty – like”.

A prophecy for the end-time is given in Isa. 65:11 wherein our Mighty One warns of the apostasy of His people, “But you are those who forsake YHWH…who prepare a table for Gad, and who furnish a drink offering for Meni.” – Revised Authorized Version. All commentators agree that Gad is a pagan deity, and so is Meni. Gad is usually interpreted as the well-known Syrian or Canaanite [sovereign] of “Good Luck” or “Fortune“, and Meni the [sovereign] of “Destiny”. This Gad is written in the Hebrew as GD, but the Massoretes afterwards vowel – pointed it, adding an “a”, to five us “Gad”. However, we find other references in Scripture to a similar [sovereign], if not the same one, also spelled GD in the Hebrew text, but this time vowel – pointed to read “Gawd” or “God“, in Jos. 11:17, 12:7, 13:5, where we find: “Baal-Gawd” or “Baal-God“, according to the vowel – pointed Masoretic Hebrew text. This Baal – Gawd or Baal – God was obviously a place named after their [sovereign].159

The astrologers identified Gad with Jupiter,159 the Sky-[sovereign] or the Sun-[sovereign]. Other sources of research also testify of “Gad” being the Sun-[sovereign]. Rev. Alexander Hislop wrote, “There is reason to believe that Gad refers to the Sun-godThe name Gad…is applicable to Nimrod, whose general character was that of a Sun-god…Thus then, if Gad was the ‘Sun divinity’, Meni was very naturally regarded as ‘The Lord Moon.’ “160 Keil and Delitzsch, Commentaries on the Old [Covenant], comments on Isa. 65:11, “There can be no doubt, therefore, that Gad, the god of good fortune,..is Baal (Bel) as the [sovereign] of good fortune…this is the deified planet Jupiter…Gad is Jupiter…Mene is Dea Luna…Rosenmuller very properly traces back the Scriptural rendering to this Egyptian view, according to which Gad is the sun-[sovereign], and Meni the lunar goddess as the power of fate.”161 Isa. 65:11 tells us than that YHWH’s people have forsaken Him, and in the end-time are found to be serving Gad, the Sun-deity of “Good Luck”, and Meni, the Moon-deity of “Destiny”.

As pointed out above, this Gad (GD with and “a” vowel – pointing) is probably the same deity as we read of in the book of Joshua, GD with a vowel-pointing of “aw” or “o”, Massoretes cannot always be relied on, but we can rely on the Hebrew Scriptures before the vowel-pointing was done. It could well be that the GD of Isa. 65:11 is the same as the “Gawd” or “God” of the book of Joshua. But, let us not try to establish a fact on an assumption. Let us rather do some research on the word “God”.

The word “God” (or god), like the Greek Theos (or theos) is used in our versions as a title, a generic name, usually. It translates the Hebrew The Mighty One (or The Mighty One), El (or el), and Eloah. However, in quite a few places it is used as a name whenever it is used as a substitute for the Tetragrammaton, the Name of our Father, e.g. Matthew 4:4 etc. If the word “God” is then used as a substitute for the Name, it must be accepted that the word “God” has become a name, again. How and when did this title or name become adopted into our modern languages? Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th edition, says, “GOD – the common Teutonic word for a personal object of religious worship…applied to all those superhuman beings of the heathen mythologies. The word ‘god’ on the conversion of the Teutonic races to Christianity was adopted as the name of the one Supreme Being…” Webster’s Twentieth Century Dictionary, Unabridged, 1st edition, says, “The word is common to Teutonic tongues…It was applied to heathen deities and later, when the Teutonic peoples were converted to Christianity, the word was elevated to the Christian sense.” James Hastings, Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics, vol. 6, p. 302, reads, “After the conversion of the Teutons to Christianity the word came to be applied also to the Christian Deity…Its etymology and its original meaning are obscure, and have been much debated.” J.G.R. Forlong, Encyclopedia of Religions, on “God”, says, “It is remarkable that philologists are unable to decide the origin of this familiar Teutonic word.” There is much confusion in the European languages between the words gud (good) and god. The Scandinavian languages, like the old Anglo-Saxon, called god gud and called gud (good) god. Calling good god and god gud is bad enough to confuse us. Even worse is that the Old Nether lands languages regarded god as an idol and gud as the correct [sovereign]! Jacob Grimm recorded162 this for us, as well as Julius Pokorny and Jan de Vries.163 This inconsistency of spelling confuses us, as it must have confused the people in those early centuries who were still completely or partially ignorant of the True Mighty One and His Name. Jacob Grimm asserts that this was done because of fear, “Such a fear may arise from two causes: a holy name must not be abused, or an unholy dreaded name, e.g., that of the devil, has to be softened down by modifying its form”, and then gives examples.162 Other modifying its form”, and then gives examples.162 Other scholars have explained that the names of national [sovereigns] were either hid, or modified, in order to prevent their enemies getting hold of these names — enemies who might use it…against them. Another reason for this changing of spelling of idols’ names was the ritual of abrenuntiatio, i.e. a solemn renouncing of the names of major [sovereigns], whenever a pagan became converted to Christianity. One of the three major idols of the Teutonic tribes was called Saxnot. It is well documented how this name was renounced and later on came back in a disguised form, Saxneat. We even found that some idols’ name were spelt 17 different ways.

We found further evidence that “gott” or “god” was not only a title, but used as a name too, amongst the Teutonic tribes. Simrock discovered songs wherein “Gott” was used as a beiname for the [sovereign] Odin.164 In German, beiname means: surname (or epithet, or appellation). We further found “Goda” as a proper name of an idol.165 Moreover, the same author relates how Wodan, “the name of the highest god”, also called Wotan and Odan, was also called Godan.166 The Teutonic masculine deities each had its female consort or counterpart. Thus we read that this [sovereign's] female consort was frau Gode.167 It is commonly known that our Wednesday was named after Wodan or Wotan. In Westphalian we find this day being called Godenstag.168

If the Teutonic pagans called all their idols by the generic name “gott” or “god“,  shall we continue to call the One that we love by the same generic name/title/or name? Why do we not translate the title The Mighty One (or El or Eloah) with it proper meaning: Mighty One or Mighty? Also, in those places where “God” has become a substitute name for “YHWH”, shall we continue to invite the wrath of The Mighty One by doing this? He has commanded us that we should not destroy His Name (Deut. 12:3c and 4, KJV or RSV), [and]…is sorely displeased with those who have forgotten His Name for Baal (Jer. 23:27), remembering that Baal really was the Sun-deity. “Therefore My people shall know My Name,” Isa. 52:6. “YHWH’s voice cries to the city – wisdom shall see Your Name,” YHWH 6:9. “For The Mighty One will save Zion.. and those who love His Name shall dwell in it,” Ps. 69:35-36. Also, and even more applicable to this present study, we will stop substituting His Name with Baal (Jer. 23:27 and Hos. 2:16) – that great Sun-[sovereign], also known as Bel, who was the primary deity of Babylon – whether “Baal” applies to the name of the Sun-[sovereign], or whether “Baal” became a title. We are to stop substituting His Name with anything that pertains to a Sun-[sovereign], or even only a title with an idolatrous origin, notwithstanding attempts to justify the “changed meaning of the word”.

They called upon His Name right back in Gen. 12:8 and 13:4, and as “Abraham” again in Gen. 21:33. Abraham called the place in Moria “YHWH Yireh”, Gen. 22:14. Isaac called upon the Name YHWH, Gen. 26:25. Jacob used the Name, Gen. 28:16. Leah used it, Gen. 29:33 and 35. Moses proclaimed the Name of YHWH, Deut. 32:3. David declared YHWH’s name, Ps. 22:22, and so did our Messiah, Heb. 2:12, John 17:6 and 17:26. 

The Jews developed a superstitious belief, after their Babylonian captivity, that the Name of YHWH should be avoided, except for certain occasions i n the Temple at Jerusalem. This was done in fear of profanation of the Name, and to avoid the use of the Name by others. This lead to the idea that the Name is “ineffable”.

However, this was a pagan doctrine. We read n Legge, Forerunners and Rivals of Christianity, p. 37, “The ineffability of divine names was an old idea in Egypt, especially in the Osirian religion…The name of Marduk (Sun-idol) of Babylon is in the same way declared ineffable in an inscription of Neri…The Name of Yahweh became ineffable directly after Alexander. See Halevy, Revue des Etudes juives, t. IX (1884), p. 172. In every case, the magical idea that the god might be compelled by utterance of his secret name seems to be at the root of the practice.”

 When the Messianic Faith was proclaimed, the same thing happened. Maximus of Madaura wrote in approximately 390 C.E., “There is only one God, sole and supreme, without beginning or parentage, whose energies, diffused through the world, we invoke under various names, because we are ignorant of his real name.”146 This is in direct contrast to what YHWH commanded us in Exod. 20:3 and Exod. 23:13, and what Paul tried to rectify in Acts 17:23.

 Scholars attest to their findings that many of the Greek idols, or their names, originated in Egypt. Other idols, or their names, are traceable to their Vedic or Sanskrit roots. In our study of the Indo-European languages, we trace many words, names, as well as idols’ names, in many of the European languages. One is astonished to notice how some of them are only found in the southernmost countries and only again in the Nordic countries. This will help us in our search for the origin of Herr, the German word for “Lord” — both of them being the substitute for the Name, YHWH…This substitution has no Scriptural ground. Indeed, it is directly in contrast to our The Mighty One’s command in Deut. 4:2 and Deut. 12:3c and 4…

The Latin and Greek names for a certain Egyptian Sun-Sun-[sovereigns] are Horus, Horos. However, in the Egyptian language his name is written Hr and pronounced: Her,147 or Heru – the ancient Sky-[sovereign] or Sun-[sovereign] of Egypt. Budge, From Fetish to God in Ancient Egypt, p.6, clearly states, “the sun as a god was called HER at a very early period.” Other Sun-[sovereigns] were to follow, bearing the name Her as the first part of their names: Hercules, the well-known Sun-[sovereign], Hermes, the Greek name for Mercury and in whose name a strong religion became established in Alexandria and Egypt just before Christianity came. Some Teutonic deities’ names also started with Her, namely Hermod and possibly Hermann, too. Amongst, the Teutons we find the names of a deity Er or Heru.148 Thorr, the great thunder-[sovereign], was also called hergot, 149 and again Herre Got.150 This same author, Jacob Grimm, perhaps the greatest scholar of Germanic languages, as well as of Germanic mythology, comments on an inscription “‘der herre’ seems to mean the sun.”151 it becomes obvious to all that this word was later used as a title and “here is said of heathen gods, angels, emperors.” 152 Other evidence as to Her or Har originating as a name, is found where the Teutonic [sovereign] Odinn is called Har,153 as well as Har or Herjan.154 Other scholars trace the origin back to the Sanskrit Svar (heaven), and the Zendic Hvar, which is the Sun.155 Har also means “bright”,156 and Herman-sul is a Sun-[sovereign].156

But again, Zeus, the great Sky-[sovereign], who later became identified as the Sun-[sovereign], was involved. Zeus was known as Herros in the Aeolian dialect, 157 or as Heros.158 The feminine of this word is Here, also known as Hera. She was the Queen of the Sky, and the sister as well as wife of Zeus, and known as Juno in Rome.

Whether it be the male Her, Herr, Herros, Heros or Heru — it all originates from Sun- or Sky-worship. Similarly, the female Here or Hera also originates from Sky-worship. Our Heavenly Father’s Name has been substituted with a so-called title. but this title traces back to the name of the Sun-[sovereign]. Likewise, Yahushúa has also been called Herr or Heer. Therefore, He also became identified with the Sun-[sovereign].

At this stage we would also like to look at the dutch Heere and the Afrikaans Here. These are plurals of Heer, even if only as a “plural majesty”, but they also trace back to the Sun-[sovereign] Her or Heru. but in its plural form the Afrikaans Here is being spelt exactly like the Queen of Heaven’s name.

Although it is commonly taught that Herr, Heer and Here are titles, the Indogermanische Etymologishes Worterbuch or Julius Pokorny, on p. 615 of the 1st volume, admits that these three words probably originated as “names of gods”.

What does Scripture say will happen in the end-time?

* “For I will take from her mouth the name of the Baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more,” Hosea 2:17. the name Baal became a title later on, but most commentators and scholars reveal its origin: the Sun-[sovereign].

* “O YHWH…the Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, ‘Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things.’ Will a man make The Mighty One for himself, which are not The Mighty One? Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know My hand and My might; and they shall know that My Name is YHWH ,” Jer. 16:19-21.

* “Therefore My people shall know My Name,” Isa. 52:6.

* “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of YHWH ,” Zeph. 3:9.

* “‘It shall be in that day’, says YHWH of hosts, ‘that I will cut off the names of the idols…”Zech. 13:2.

* “They will call on My Name and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people'; and each will say, ‘YHWH is my The Mighty One,'” Zech. 13:9.

* “And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the Name of YHWH shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as YHWH has said, among the remnant whom YHWH calls,” Joel 2:32.

* “For I will make My Separated Name known in the midst of My people Israel,” Eze. 39:7.

* “If we had forgotten the Name of our The Mighty One, or stretched out our hands to a foreign The Mighty One, would not The Mighty One sear this out?” Psalm 44:20-21.

* “Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek Your Name O YHWH…That men may know that You Whose Name alone is YHWH, are the Most High over all the earth,” Psalm 83:16-18.

* Has our Messiah not clearly stated in John 17:26b that He will make His Father’s Name known to us? Are we allowing Him, Who works in us, to do this work of restitution, of restoring, or giving us pure lips, “a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of YHWH”? Zeph. 3:9.

Similar to the foregoing components of Sun-worship which had been adopted into the church, we have similar proof of the adoption of a pagan word or name, although less convincing of its absolute solar origin. However, we can clearly see that, with the Greeks using both the Greek words Messias (a transliteration) and Christos (a translation) for the Hebrew Mashiach (Anointed), the word Christos was far more acceptable to the pagans who were worshiping Chreston, Chrestos, and perhaps also those worshiping Krista. But we will come to that later.

The Hebrew word Mashiach has been translated in the Old Testament of the King James Version as “Anointed” in most places, but as “Messiah” in two places, namely Dan. 9:25 and 26. This word is a title, although it was used as an appellative (name) later on. Thus, this word was faithfully translated as “Anointed” in the Old Testament and only in Dan 9:25 and 26 was its Hebrew character retained in the transliterated “Messiah”. Likewise, we find that the Greeks also admitted their transliterated form Messias in the Greek New Testament in John 1:41 and John 4:25. Why then did they introduce or use the word Christos in the rest of the Greek New Testament? Even if they had preferred Christos to Messias, why did our translators transliterate the word as “Christ”? Why did they not transliterate the word, as was done in Dan 9:25 and 26, as “Messiah”, seeing that the Greeks had also accepted their Greek transliteration of the word, namely Messias in John 1:41 and John 4:25? Ferrar Fenton’s translation, The Complete Bible in Modern English, used “Messiah” instead of “Christ” in most places where the word is used alone, except when used as the combination “Jesus Christ”. Similarly, the New English Bible has used “Messiah” in its New Testament in many places. The Good News Bible has restored the word “Messiah” in no less than 70 places in its New Testament. The New International Version gives the alternative “Messiah” in almost all places, by means of a footnote. Dr. Bullinger in The Companion Bible, appendix 98 IX, says, “Hence, the Noun (Christos) is used of and for the Messiah, and in the [Scriptures] should always be translated ‘Messiah‘”. Also, Benjamin Wilson in his Emphatic Diaglott has restored the words “Anointed” and “Messiah” in many places.

Yahushúa Himself said in John 4:22, “For salvation is from the Jews,” NASB. Not only was our Messiah born from a Hebrew virgin, but also all of His Saving Message, the teachings, “the root and fatness” (Rom. 11:17), the Glad Tidings, “spiritual things” (Rom. 15:27), “the citizenship of Israel” (Eph. 2:12, Rotherham), “covenants of promise” (Eph. 2:12), “the spiritual blessings” (Rom. 15:27, NIV and TEV) – are all from the Jews! That well-known scholar of the Old Testament, as well as New Testament, Prof. Julius Wellhausen, who in all his works expressed his hatred towards Pharisaical Judaism, nevertheless wrote the following bold words, “Jesus…was a Jew. he proclaimed no new faith, but He taught that the Will of God must be done. The Will of God stands for Him, as for the Jews, in eh Law, and in the other holy Scriptures that are classed with it.”200 Yahushúa could not have been known as Christos amongst His people. His title was known as Mashiach in Hebrew, and Mesiha in Aramaic – to those who accepted Him as such, Matt. 16:16, John 6:69 etc. This title is easily transliterated as “Messiah”, and is generally accepted, and has been accepted, just like the Greek Messias. Why then have they not persisted with it? Even if they wanted to translate it, why have they not translated it as “Anointed“, as was done in the English translation of the King James Version’s Old Testament?

Our research into this matter has produced some revealing similarities between Christos and certain pagan names and titles. F.D. Gearly, writing in The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, vol. 1, pp. 571-572, says, “the word Christos…was easily confused with the common Greek proper name Chrestos, meaning ‘good.” He also quotes a French theological dictionary which says, “It is absolutely beyond doubt that Christus and Chrestus, Christiani and Chrestiani, were used indifferently by the profane and Christian authors of the first two centuries of our era.” He continues, “in Greek, ‘e’ and ‘i’ were similarly pronounced and often confused, the original spelling of the word should be determined only if we could fix its provenance (origin)…The problem is further complicated by the fact that the word Christianos is a Latinism…and was contributed neither by Jews nor by the Christians themselves.” He quotes various scholars to support his proposition that the word Christianos was introduced from one of three origins: (a) The Roman police (b) The Roman populace (c) Unspecified pagan provenance (origin).” he then proceeds, “The three occurences of ‘Christian’ in the NT suggest that the term was at this time primarily used as a pagan designation. Its infrequent use in the NT indicates not so much lateness of origin as pagan provenance (origin).”

This almost sensational admission as to the confusion and uncertainty between Christos and Chrestos, Christus and Chrestus, Christiani and Chrestiani, is well documented and shared and published by other scholars too, 201 as well as by the Early Fathers: Justin Martyr, Tertullian, Lanctantius and others.201

Who was this Chrestos or Chreston with which Christos became confused with? We have already seen that Chrestos was a common Greek proper name, meaning “good”. further, we see in Pauly-Wissowa, Realencyclopaedie, under “Chrestos”, that the inscription Chrestos is to be seen on a Mithras relief in the Vatican. We also read in J.M. Robertson, Christianity and Mythology, p. 331, that Osiris, the Sun-[sovereign] of Egypt, was reverenced as Chrestos. We also read of the heretic Gnostics who used the name Chreistos.202 The confusion, and syncretism, is further evidenced by the oldest Christian building known, the Synagogue of the Marcionites on Mt. Hermon, built in the 3rd century, where the Messiah’s title or appellation is spelt Chrestos.203 Justin Martyr (about 150 C.E.) said that Christians were Chrestoi or “good“. Tertullian and Lactantius inform us that “the common people usually called Christ Chrestos”. Clement of Alexandria, in the same age, said, “all who believe in Christ are called Chrestoi, that is ‘good men.'”203

The word Christos could even have been more acceptable to the Krishna-worshipers, because the name of Krishna was pronounced, and still is to the present day, as Krista, in many parts of India.204 Thus, we can readily see that the word Christos was easier to convert the pagans with than the word “Messiah”, especially because of the anti-Judaism that prevailed among the pagans. The syncretism between Christos and Chrestos (the Sun-[sovereign] Orsiris), is further elucidated by the fact of emperor Hadrian’s report, who wrote, “There are there (in Egypt) Christians who worship Serapis; and devoted to Serapis, are those who call themselves ‘Bishops of Christ‘.”198 Serapis was another Sun-[sovereign] who superseded Osiris in Alexandria. Once again, we must not falter nor stumble over this confusion among the Gentiles. Rather, we must seek the truth, primarily from the faithfully preserved Old [Covenant] Scriptures – see 2 Tim. 3:16, John 17:17, Ps. 119:105, Isa 40:8. We must worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth, as well as His Son, Yahushúa the Messiah, Who is sitting at His right hand. We do accept every word in the New [Covenant], but we do desire to return to the original Scriptures of the New [Covenant], as far back as we possibly can. As previously mentioned, the Greeks changed Elijah into Helias in the Greek New [Covenant], and the Helios-worshipers must have been overjoyed because of their Sun-deity being assimilated to the Elijah of the Scriptures. To avoid the confusion between Helias and Helios, we should abide by the Hebrew “Elijah”. Likewise, to avoid confusion between Christos and Chrestos, we should abide by the word Anointed – remembering that Osiris the Sun-deity, amongst others, was called Chrestos. Mithras, too, was possibly called Chrestos (see above).

There is not a single authoritative reference source which gives the name Jesus or Iesous as the original name of Yahushúa. All of them admit that the original form of the Name was Jehoshua or Yehoshua to Jesus?

Many Hebrew names of the Old Testament prophets have been “Hellenised” when these names were rewritten in the Greek New Testament. Thus, Isaiah became Isaias, Elisha became Elissaios or Elisseus (Eliseus),and Elijah became Helias in the Greek New Testament. The King James Version ahs retained some of these Hellenised names. Since the King James Version was published, the newer English versions have ignored these Hellenised names of the Greek New [Covenant], and have preferred , quite correctly, to render them as they are found in the Hebrew Old [Covenant], namely: Isaiah, Elisha and Elijah. Incidentally, the similarity between the Hellenised Helias (instead of Elijah) and the Greek Sun-deity Helios, gave rise to the well-known assimilation of these two by the Church. Dr. A.B. Cook, in his book, Zeus – A Study in Ancient Religion, vol. I p. 178 – 179, elaborates on this, quoting the comments of a 5th century Christian poet and others, on this. Imagine it, Elijah identified with Helios, the Greek Sun-deity! Returning to our discussion on the reluctance of the translators to persist with all of the Hellenised names in the Greek of the New [Covenant], one could very well ask: But why did they persist with the Hellenised Iesous of Yahushúa’s Name, and its further Latinised form Iesus? It is accepted by all that His Hebrew name was Yahushúa. So why did the translators of the scriptures not restore it, as they did with the names of the Hebrew prophets? It is generally agreed that our successor to Moses, Joshua. But “Joshua” was not the name of the man who led Israel into the Promised Land. The Greeks substituted the Old Testament “Yehoshua” with Iesous, the same word they used for Yahushúa in the New [Covenant]. Subsequently the Latins came and substituted it with Josue (Iosue) in the Old [Covenant] (which became Josua in German and Joshua in English), but used Iesus in the New [Covenant]. In the Hebrew Scriptures we do not find the word “Joshua”. In every place it is written: Yehoshua. However, after the Babylonian captivity we find the shortened form “Yeshua” in a few places -shortened, because they then omitted the second and third letters, namely: Everyone who sees the names Yehoshua and Iesous will agree: there is no resemblance between the names Yehoshua and Iesous or Iesus.

Before we continue with our study of the word Iesous and Iesus, we would like to point out that we have been led to believe that the correct Name is Yahushúa. He said in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name”. Again, in John 17:11 He prayed to His Father, “…keep them through Your Name which You have given Me”. Therefore, in John 17:11, Yahushúa states that His Father’s Name had been given to Him. Again He repeats this irrefutable fact in the next verse, John 17:12, “…in you Name which You gave Me. And I guarded them (or it).” So, we have Yahushúa’s clear words, in three tests, that His Father’s name was given to Him. Paul also testifies to this in Ephesians 3:14-15. 

Two factors contributed greatly to the substitution and distortion of Yahushúa’s Name. The first was the un-Scriptural superstitious teaching of the Jews that the Father’s Name is not to be uttered, that it is ineffable, that others will profane it when they use it, and that the Name must be “disguised” outside of the temple of Jerusalem.182 Because of the Father’s name being in His Son’s Name, this same disastrous suppression of the Name resulted in them (? the Greeks) giving a Hellenised, in fact a surrogate name for Yahushúa. he did warn us in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name…if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.” The second factor was the strong anti-Judaism that prevailed amongst the Gentiles, as we have already pointed out. The Gentiles wanted a saviour, but not a Jewish one. They loathed the Jews, they even loathed the The Mighty One of the Old Testament. Thus, a Hellenised Saviour was preferred. The Hellenised theological school at Alexandria, led by the syncretising, allegorising, philosophying, Gnostic-indoctrinated Clement and Origen, was the place where everything started to become distorted and adapted to suit the Gentiles. The Messianic Faith, and its Saviour, had to become Hellenised to be acceptable to the Gentiles.

Where did Iesous and Iesus come from? In Bux and Schone, Worterbuch der Antike, under “Jesus”, we read, “JESUS: really named Jehoshua. Iesous (Greek), Iesus (Latin) is adapted from the Greek, possibly from the name of a Greek healing goddess Ieso (Iaso).” Like all authoritative sources, this dictionary admits to the real true name of Yahushúa: Jehoshua (more precisely: Yahushúa). It then states, as most others, that the commonly known substitute, non-original, non-real name “Jesus” was adapted from the Greek. We must remember that Yahushúa was born from a Hebrew virgin, not from a Greek one. His stepfather, His half-brothers and half-sisters, in fact all His people, were Hebrews, Jews. Furthermore, this dictionary then traces the substitute name back to the Latin Iesus, and the Greek Iesous. It then traces the origin of the name Iesous back as being possibly adapted from the Greek healing goddess Ieso (Iaso). To the uniformed I would like to point out that Iaso is the usual Greek form, while Ieso is from the Ionic dialect of the Greeks. This startling discovery, the connection between Ieso (Iaso) and Iesous, is also revealed to us by the large unabridged edition of Liddell and Scott, Greek-English Lexicon, p. 816, under “Iaso”. The third witness comes to us in a very scholarly article by Hans Lamer in Philologische Wochenschrift, No.25, 21 June 1930, pp. 763-765. In this article the author recalls the fact of Ieso being the Ionic Greek goddess of healing. Hans Lamer then postulates, because of all the evidence, that “they changed Ieso into a regular masculine Iesous. This was even more welcome to the Greeks who converted to Christianity.” He then continues, “If the above is true, then the name of our Lord which we commonly use goes back to a long lost form of the name of a Greek goddess of healing. But to Greeks who venerated a healing goddess Ieso, a saviour Iesous must have been most acceptable. The Hellenisation was thus rather clever.” This then is the evidence of three sourced who, like us, do not hide the fact of the Greek name Iesous being related to the Greek goddess of healing. The Hellenisation of Yahushúa’s Name was indeed most cleverly done. To repeat Yahushúa’s words of warning in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.” There is no resemblance or identifiability between the Name, Yahushúa, and the Greek substitute for it, Iesous. The Father’s Name, Yah- or Yahu-, cannot be seen in the Greek Iesous or in the Latin Iesus, neither in the German Jesus, nor in the English Jesus. President Reagan’s name remains the same in all languages. Hitler’s name remains the same in all languages. Even Satan has seen to it that all nations know him by his name: Satan. Satan has seen to it that his own name has been left unmolested!

However, let us further investigate the names Ieso (Iaso) and Iesous. According to ancient Greek religion, Apollo, their great Sun-[sovereign], had a son by the name of Asclepius, the [sovereign] of healing, but also identified with the Sun. This Asclepius had daughters, and one of them was Iaso (Ieso),183 the Greek [soverenness] of healing. Because of her father’s and grandfather’s identities as Sun-[sovereigns], she too is in the same family of Sun-[sovereigns]. Therefor, the name Iesous, which is possibly derived from Ieso, can be traced back to Sun-worship.

We find other related names, all of them variants of the same name, Iasus, Iasion, Iasius, in ancient Greek religion, as being sons of Zeus.184 Even in India we find a similar name Issa or Issi, as surnames for their [sovereign] Shiva.185 Quite a few scholars have remarked on the similarity between the names of the Indian Issa or Issi, the Egyptian Isis and the Greek Iaso.186 In our research on the [sovereign] Isis we made two startling discoveries. The one was that the son of Isis was called Isu by some 187. However, the second discovery yielded even further light: The learned scholar of Egyptian religion, Hans Bonnet, reveals to us in his Real lexikon der Agyptischen Religions geschichte, p. 326, that the name of Isis appears in the hieroglyphic inscriptions as ESU or ES. No wonder it has been remarked, “Between Isis and Jesus as names confusion could arise.”187 This Isis also had a child, which was called Isu by some.187 This Isu and Esu sound exactly like the “Jesu” that we find the Saviour called in the translated Scriptures of many languages, e.g. many African languages. Rev. Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, p. 164, also remarked on the similarity of Jesus and Isis, “IHS – Iesus Hominum Salvator – But let a Roman worshiper of Isis (for in the age of the emperors there were innumerable worshipers of Isis in Rome) cast his eyes upon them, and how will he read them, or course, according to his won well-known system of idolatry: Isis, Horus, Seb.” He then continues with a similar example of “skillful planning” by “the very same spirit, that converted the festival of the Pagan Oannes is not the feast of the Christians Joannes.” (The Hebrew name of the baptizer, and that of the apostle as well, was Yochanan or Yehochanan).

Thus, by supplanting the Name of Yahushúa with that of the Hellenised Iesous (in capitals: IHSOUS), which became the Latinised Iesus, it was easy to make the pagans feel welcome – those pagans who worshiped the Greek Ieso (Iaso), of which he masculine counterpart is Iesous (in capitals: IHSOUS), as well as those who worshiped the Egyptian Esu (Isis). Further evidence of syncretism with the Isis-system is found in A. Kircher, Oedipus Aegypticus, wherein the name of the son of Isis is revealed to us as “Iessus, which signifies Issa, whom they also called Christ in Greek.” Another pagan group of worshipers could also be made to feel at home with the introduction of this surrogate name Iesous (IHSOUS) or Iesus, namely the worshipers of Esus. Jan de Vries hold that Esus was a Gallic [sovereign] comparable to the Scandinavian Odin.188 Odin, of course, was the Scandinavian Sky-[sovereign]. This Gallic or Celtic [sovereign], Esus, has also been identified 189 with Mars, and by others with Mercury, and was regarded to by the special [sovereign] of Paris.189 Just as Iaso, Ieso, Iesous are derived from the Greek word for healing, iasis, we similarly find Isis (more correctly: Esu) and her son Horus (more correctly: Her), regarded as [sovereigns] of healing as well as cosmic [sovereigns],190 or Sun-[sovereigns], by others.

The most disturbing evidence is yet to follow. The abbreviated form of the name Iesous is: Ies or in capitals: IHS, or in Greek the capital for “e” id “H”. This is to be found on many inscriptions made by the Church during the dark Middle Ages. This fact is also well documented and is generally admitted by scholarly sources and ordinary English dictionaries.191 These dictionaries bear witness to the fact if IHS (Ies) being an abbreviated form of IHSOUS (Iesous).

Furthermore, the shocking fact has also been recorded for us that IHS was a mystery surname of Bacchus, and was afterwards taken as initials for Iesous, capitals: IHSOUS.192 We discovered this in a dictionary of mythology and in an encyclopaedia of religion.192 This revelation was confirmed by a third witness, Dr. E.W. Bullinger, The Apocalypse, footnote p. 396, “Whatever meanings of…IHS may be given, the fact remains that it was part of the name of Bacchus…” We then realized, most painfully, that our beloved Messiah was identified with the Greek [sovereign] Bacchus, by giving Yahushúa the surname or other name of Bacchus, namely: IHS or Ies! Bacchus was well known to be a Sun-[sovereign]. Bacchus was also a commonly known name for Tammuz among classical writers.193 Tammuz, as you will remember, was known to be the young returning Sun-deity,194 returning in spring. Bacchus, also known as Dionysus, was expressly identified with the Egyptian Osiris,195 the well-known Egyptian Sun-[sovereign]. Bacchus was also called Ichthus, the Fish.196 So, yet another group, the worshipers of Bacchus, the Sun-[sovereign], alias Ies (IHS), were conciliated, were made welcome, with the foreign-to-the-Hebrew name of Iesous (IHSOUS) or Iesus. This most appalling revelation startled us, indeed. After being enlightened about the solar origin of the word IHS and its fuller form IHSOUS (Iesous), we are no longer surprised to find the ecclesiastical emblem, IHS, encircled by sun-rays, commonly displayed on church windows:

 No wonder that we read the testimony of the learned Christian advocate, M. Turretin, in describing the state of Christianity in the 4th century, saying “that it was not so much the (Roman) Empire that was brought over to the Faith, as the Faith that was brought over to the Empire; not the Pagans who were converted to Christianity, but Christianity that was converted to Paganism.”197 A further witness to this paganisation of the Messianic Faith is that of emperor Hadrian, who, in a letter to the Consul Servianus, wrote, “There are there (in Egypt) Christians who worship Serapis; and devoted to Serapis are those who call themselves ‘Bishops of Christ.'”198 Another testimony comes to us from the letter of Faustus, writing to Augustine, “You have substituted your love-feasts for the sacrifices of the Pagans; for their idols your martyrs, whom you serve with the very same honours. You appease the shades of the dead with wine and feasts; you celebrate the solemn festivals of the Gentiles, their calends, and their solstices; and as to their manners, those you have retained without any alteration. Nothing distinguishes you from the Pagans, except that you hold your assemblies apart from them.”199

Yahushúa, in His final message to us, the book of Revelation, has warned us of this in Rev. 17, Rev. 18, Rev. 19, and also in Rev. 13, Rev. 14, and Rev. 16 -Babylon, Mystery Babylon. The Great Harlot has made “the inhabitants of the earth drunk with the wine of her fornication,” out of the “golden cup” in her hand, “full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication,” Rev. 17:1-5. The is also described as “sitting on a scarlet beast, full of names of blasphemy,” verse 3. Tammuz, alias Bacchus, had a surname: Ies or IHS. He was also known as the fish (Ichthus), and had the Tau, the cross, as his sign. These three things have survived, and are still with us!

In Acts 4:12 we read, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” This verse clearly tell us that there is only one Name whereby we can be saved – there is none other. It cannot be Yahushúa as well as Jesus, Iesous, Iesus, or Ies (Bacchus). There is no resemblance between the names of Yahushúa and Jesus. The one is correct and the other one a substitute. The one contains our Father’s Name and the other one not. Yahushúa has said that He came in His Father’s name, John 5:43. In the newer translations of the Scriptures, we read in two places, John 17:11 and 12, that Yahushúa said that His Father’s Name was given to Him. If we believe the Scriptures, if we believe our Messiah, if we believe what Peter said in Acts 4:12, we cannot be satisfied with any substitute name. We must believe, accept, and be baptized into the only saving Name: Yahushúa. In the end-time, according to Joel 2:32, calling on the Name of YHWH will be necessary for salvation and deliverance. By believing on, calling on, and being baptized in the Name of Yahushúa, we do “call on the Name of YHWH”, through His Son, “Who had His Father’s Name given to Him, by His Father. “I have come in My Father’s Name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive,” John 5:43. The writer of Proverbs challenges us in Prov. 30:4, “What is His Name, and what is His Son’s Name, if thou canst tell?” KJV. a very interesting alternate rendering for Psalm 72:17 is given to us in the centre column of the Reference Kin James Version, speaking about he promised Messiah, “His Name shall be as a Son to continue His Father’s Name for ever.”

As I have stated, there is no resemblance between the Name Yahushúa and the name Jesus. Neither is there any resemblance between their meanings. Yahushúa means: “the Salvation of Yah or Yahu (pdf).” “Jesus” is derived from Iesus, derived from Iesous (IHSOUS) derived, most probably, from the Greek [sovereignness] of healing, Ieso or Iaso. her name was derived from iasis ,which means “healing”. Further, the short form, or original source of the name Iesous (IHSOUS) is Ies (IHS), the very surname of Bacchus, the Sun-[sovereign]. Therefore, the two names differ completely in their origin, and in their meaning. And more important: Yahushúa’s name contains the Name of His Father, which the substitute name does not. Further proof of the Father’s Name being in the Son’s Name is found in Eph. 3:14-15, “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father…from Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.” Surely, if His family received His Name, His only begotten Son will also have His Name.

Another proof is Rev. 14:1, but this should be read in the newer translations, because the King James Version and the Revised Authorized Version have it both wrong. Rev. 14:1-5, in the NASB reads, “And 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…These are the ones who have not been defiled…These are the ones who follow the Lamb where ever He goes. These have been purchased…as first-fruits…And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless.” The translators of the King James version must have realized the meaning of this passage in Rev. 14:1, namely, the similarity between the Lamb’s Name and His Father’s Name. Therefore they took the liberty, even if wrongfully, to omit the words “His Name and”. The King James Version therefore only speaks about the Father’s Name, while the Greek Text reads, “having His Name and the Name of His Father written on their foreheads.” Do we wish to be part of this first fruit company? Then we are to make quite certain that we have the Father’s Name and the Lamb’s Name on (or in) our Foreheads. The similarity between their Names is obvious. Whether it will be just one Name, Yah, or whether it will be both YHWH and Yahushúa, is not clearly indicated, and is less important – as long as we have the essential part of the Name, Yah, which transmits its etymological concept of life, everlasting life. Verses 4-5 warn us against defilement, spiritual defilement — the lies that we have inherited, including the lies about the Names. “O YHWH,…the Gentile shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, ‘Surely our fathers have inherited lies…’ Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know…; and they shall know My Name is YHWH ,” Jer. 16:19-21, a prophecy for the end-time. “Therefore My people shall know My Name,” Isa. 52:6. “I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My Name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people'; and each one will say, ‘YHWH is my Mighty One,'” Zech. 13:9. “For then will I restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of YHWH , to serve Him with one accord,” Zeph. 3:9. “And YHWH shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be – ‘YHWH is one,’ and His Name one,” Zech. 14:9. he will no longer be called by all those hundreds of names, by which He is known today. His Name will be “one”. And His Son, in Whose Name the Father’s Name is contained, will subject Himself to His Father in that day, 1 Cor. 15:28.

The Name YHWH has been substituted in our translations of the Scriptures with the title “Lord” some 6823 times. The short form, Yah, has also been substituted 48 times with “Lord (pdf)”, and only in one place was it retained as: Yah, in Ps. 68:4 (Jah, in the KJV). Further, wherever we read “GOD” in capital letters, that too is a substitute for “YHWH”. This title, “lord”, is applied to all heathen deities, if the word “god” is not used for them. In most cases “lord” and “god” are used interchangeably for pagan idols. For instance, Hare Krishna is popularly known as “Lord”, and nowadays we hear much about “Lord Maitreya”. In 1 Cor. 8:5 Paul says, “There are many gods and many lords”. So, who then, do we worship? Surely there is only One that we should worship, with His Son sitting on His right side. “What is His Name, and what is His Son’s Name, if you know?” – Prov. 30:4. Why have Their Names been hidden from us?

Let us investigate this most common substitute for the Name YHWH, namely, “Lord”. What is its etymology? Dictionaries tel us that it originated from the Old English hlaford, which in turn came from hlaf-weard = loaf-keeper. This may be true, but you do have to strectch your imagination to see a connection between “lord” and hlaf-weard. Nevertheless, even if we do accept it, I would like to propose that, in accordance with the spirit of syncretism, i.e. making your deity acceptable to others, we can readily see how the worshipers of three pagan deities with names similar to “lord”, were accommodated by means of compromise. These three pagan [sovereigns] were Larth, Loride and Lordo. The Church, which evolved after Constantine fused the Messianic Faith with Sun-worship, was enthusiastic to win as many followers as they could, even if it meant compromise or assimilation. Let us do some research on these three idols:

(a) LARTH: There was an Etruscan house [sovereign] whose name was Lar, which signified “Lord”, also known as Larth,169 who later on became very popular n Rome and became known as Lares (plural), because as idol statues they were usually in pairs. This [sovereign] was invoked together with Janus, Jupiter, Mars, Quirinus and Bellona.170 The Greek equivalent of this name was Heros,171 which was another name for Zeus, as we have seen previously in this article. A feminine form was known as Lara,172 who was the beloved of Mercury, the Sun-[sovereign]. Another name for Zeus was Larissaeus,173 which also was another name for Apollo. Zeus was also known as Larasios 174 or Lariseus,174 while Larasios was also a surname of Helios.174 Typical of the syncretism and polytheism of those days, we read of emperor Alexander Severus (222 – 235 C.E.) who “had images of Abraham, Christ and Alexander the Great among his household Lares.”175 These Lares are to be found in the East as well, seen in niches in Hindu houses.176 However, what is the analogy between Larth (Lar) and Lord? Firstly, all sources agree, that this Lar or Larth means: Lord. Secondly, it is well documented that “the” and “d” were virtually interchangeably used, varying from nation to nation. Thirdly, in Old English and Middle English it was common to find the “o” and “a” interchangeably used too. In the Middle English Dictionary, editor S.M. Kuhn, we read177 that lord was earlier spelt lard; that lor became lord; that lor was spelt lar in Old English (meaning: the action or process of teaching or preaching); that Lore-fader was also spelt Larfaderr or Larefadir or larfadir (meaning:teacher); that lorspel was lar-spel in Old English (meaning: that which is taught in religion); and that lor-theu was previously also spelt lar-theow, lardewe, lardewen, lauerd, lordeau (meaning: teacher or spiritual or theological teacher). Thus we can easily see the ease of identifying Lard, Lord, Larth, Lor, Lar, Lortheu, Lartheow, Lardewe with one another. In fact, it is easier to trace the origin of “Lord” according to this well documented evidence, rather than the commonly held belief that it originated from hlaf-weard.

(b) LORIDE: Thor was the well-known Teutonic war-[sovereign]. he was also known as a Sun-[sovereign].178 His surname was Hlorridhi, 179 or Loride, 180 The latter also taken to be Thor’s son, who had a wife with the name “Gloria”.180 This Loride could easily have been contracted to the form “Lord”, or perhaps it could only have served to establish religious syncretism with Larth, and Lortheu, and Lard, and Lordeau, and Lord.

(c) LORDO: Lordo181, or Lordon, was another [sovereign] or daimon, the daimon of “lodosis“, the curvature of the spine or body, which also had a sensual meaning.181

If all this evidence is considered, once can resolve that, apart from the various names which contributed toward the assimilation or syncretism, the most likely origin of the word “Lord” seems to come from Larth (Lard) and Lor-theu (lardewe, lordeau, laured). Thus, although the word “Lord” is not so clearly related to, or originated from, frank Sun-worship, we have enough evidence to trace its roots back to idolatrous worship in the form of Loride, being a surname for Thor (the Sun), and also Lortheu or Lardewe or lordeau (connected with theos or deos or deva), as well as Larth or Lar which was somehow linked with Mercury (the Sun-[sovereign]) and Zeus, the Sky-[sovereign] who later on became the Sun-[sovereign].

As a confirmation of the conclusion to which we came, we afterwards discovered the following findings of the scholar of English names, Robert Ferguson, in his Surnames as a Science. On pp. 157 and 189 he emphatically states that “Lord” could not have had its origin from hlaford, which was said to come from hlaf-weard. Like us, he states that the origin of “Lord” is from lar lore, and Loride.

What then, should we use instead of “Lord”? The word “Master” is an exact rendering of the Hebrew Adonai and the Greek Kurios. For our Saviour or His Father we can use “Sovereign”. The latter word is used in many places in teh Old Testament of the New International Version. If we love the Name of YHWH, as is expected from us (Ps. 69:32, Ps. 119:132, Isa. 56:6), can we be content with this word “Lord” which man has dared to substitute His Name with? Can we say with David in Ps. 5:11, “But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You…Let those also who love Your Name, be joyful in You.” The Mighty One’s end-time prophecy of Isa. 56:6-7 could mean a blessing, or an exclusion to us, “Also the sons of the foreigner, who joined themselves to YHWH, to serve Him, and to love the name of YHWH to be His servants -everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and holds fast My Covenant – even them I will bring to My Separated Mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer.” Again, He prophecies about this time in Hosea 2:16-17, “And it shall be, in the day,” says YHWH, ‘That you will…no longer call Me: My Baal; for I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more.'” The prophecy of Zeph. 3:9 must be fulfilled, “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of YHWH, to serve Him with one accord.”

This is the word used in most English versions as a rendering of the New Testament’s Greek word ekklesia. Ekklesia really means “a calling out”, a meeting or a gathering. Ekklesia is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew qahal, which means an assembly or a congregation. Neither ekklesia nor qahal means a building. Tyndale, in his translation, uniformly translated ekklesia as “congregation” and only used the word “churches” to translate Acts 19:37 for heathen temples! Whence the word “church”, then? Ecclesiastical sources give the origin as kuriakon or kyriakon in Greek. However, to accept this, one has to stretch your imagination in an attempt to see any resemblance. Also, because kuriakon means a building (the house of Kurios=Lord), and not a gathering or meeting of people, as the words ekklesia and qahal imply, therefore this explanation can only be regarded as distorted, even if it is true. Our common dictionaries, however, are honest in revealing to us the true origin. They all trace the word back to its Old English or Anglo-Saxon root, namelyirce. And the origin of circe? Any encyclopaedia, or dictionary of mythology, will reveal who Circe was. She was the goddess-daughter of Helios, the Sun-[sovereign]! Again, another form of Sun-worship, this time the daughter of the Sun-[sovereign], had become mixed with the Messianic Faith.

circe church daughter of Sun-sovereign HeliousCirce, daughter of the well known Sun-[sovereign] Helios. This”Circe” is the identical Old English word for “Church”—see any dictionary.

Some interesting facts emerge from the study of the word circe. The word is related to “circus”, “circle”, “circuit”, “Circean”, “circulate”, and the various words starting with “circum-“. The Latin pronunciation could have been “sirke” or “sirse”. The Old English word circe may have been pronounced similarly to “kirke”, or even “sirse “.

However, Circe was in fact originally a Greek [sovereignness] where her name was written as: Kirke, and pronounced as such—just as in numerous similar cases of words of Greek origin, e.g. cyst and kustis, cycle and kuklos, cylinder and kulindros. The word “church” is known in Scotland as kirk, and in German as Kirche and in Netherlands as kerk. These words show their direct derivation from the Greek Kirke even better than the English “church”. However, even the Old English circe for “church”, reveals its origin.

Let us rather use the Scriptural “Assembly” or “Congregation“, and renounce the word that is derived from Circe, the daughter of the Sun-[sovereign]!

The Hebrew of the Old Testament reveals to us that the Scriptural Hebrew word (which means: so be it, or verily or surely) is “Amein” and not “Amen”. Likewise, the Greek equivalent in the Greek New Testament is also pronounced: “Amein”. Anyone can check on this in Stong’s Concordance, No. 543 in its Hebrew Lexicon, and No. 281 in its Greek Lexicon, or in Aaron Pick’s Dictionary of Old Testament Words for English Readers. Why then, has this Scriptural word “Amein” been rendered as “Amen” in our versions? Again we can see how the pagans have been made welcome, been conciliated, by adopting the name of pagan deity into the Church.

The Egyptians, including the Alexandrians, had been worshiping, or been acquainted with, the head of the Egyptian pantheon, Amen-Ra, the great Sun-deity, for more than 1 000 years, B.C.E. Before this deity became known as Amen-ra, he was only known as Amen among the Thebians. This substitution of “Amen” for “Amein” was greatly facilitated by the fact that this Egyptian deity’s name was pelt in Egyptian hieroglyphic language with only three letters: AMN, just as we find a similar poverty of vowels in the Scriptural Hebrew, which prior to its vowel-pointing by the Massoretes, also only spelt its AMEIN as : AMN. However, with the vowel-pointing by the Massoretes the Scriptural word has been preserved for us as AMEIN. On the other hand, the Egyptian deity AMN is rendered by various sources as AMEN, or AMUN, or as AMON. However, the most reliable Egyptologists and archaelogsits, such as Sir E.A. Wallis Budge,112 Dr. A.B. Cook,113 Prof. A Wiedemann, 114 Sir W.M.F. Petrie,115 and A.W. Shorter,116 as well as some authoritative dictionaries,117 all render the name of this Egyptian deity as AMEN. This AMEN was originally the Theban “hidden god who is in heaven”112 “the hidden one, probably meaning hidden sun”.118 Funk and Wagnalls, Standard College Dictionary, describes it, “AMEN: In Egyptian mythology, the god of life and procreation…later identified with the Sun-[sovereign] as the supreme [sovereign], and called ‘Amen-Ra‘.” James Bonwick, Egyptian Belief and Modern Thought, repeatedly and frankly calls the Sun-deity of Egypt by its correct name: AMEN. He states on pp. 123-125, “AMEN…is in a sense, the chief deity of Egypt – supreme divinity. Whatever else he be, he must be accepted as the sun…the hidden god, the solar aspect is clear…there is the disk of the sun…the sun Amen…His identification with Baal…establishes him as a solar deity…” Smith’s Bible Dictionary expresses AMEN as, “an Egyptian divinity…He was worshiped…as Amen-Ra, or ‘Amen the Sun‘.” Herodotos recorded for us how the Greeks identified their Zeus with Amen-Ra.113

Yahushúa calls Himself “the Amein” in Rev. 3:14. Substituting a title or name of Yahushúa with the name o of the great hidden Sky-deity or the great Sun-[sovereign] of the Egyptians, Amen, is inconceivable! The difference is subtle, but it is there. By ending our prayers “Amen” instead of “Amein”, one could very well ask: Have we been misled to invoke the name of the Egyptian Sun-[sovereign] at the end of our prayers?

 The origin of the word “obelisk“: (The following definition is from The Assembly of IaHUShUA’ MaShIaChaH)

The well-known pointed obelisks or sun-pillars of Egypt are found in the Scriptures in the Hebrew words matzebah and hammanim. The former word is best translated as “pillars” or as “sun-pillars”, and the latter as “sun-images”. In Jer. 43:13 this matzebah (sun-pillars) are identified as those obelisks found in Beth-shemesh (in Greek: Heliopolis) in the land of Egypt. Unfortunately, the King James Version rendered this word matzebah in most places as “images,” instead of “obelisks” or “pillars”, as the other English versions correctly do. In Exod. 23:24 Israel was commanded to break down these pillars of the heathen nations. he repeated this in Exod. 34:13, deut. 7:5 and Deut. 12:3. And in many other places n Scripture these pillars or sun-pillars are emphatically described as an “abomination” by our Mighty One. Israel was not only commanded to break down these pagan pillars or sun-pillars, they were strictly commanded not to erect them, Deut. 16:22 and Lev. 26:1. in Deut. 16:22 our Mighty One says that He “hates” them.

Diodorus spoke of an obelisk 130 feet high which was erected by Queen Semiramis in Babylon.207 In Babylon the phallic symbolism seems to have been the more important aspect. However, in Egypt more emphasis was put on its sun-symbolism seems to have been the more important aspect. However, in Egypt more emphasis was put on its sun-symbolism, pointing upwards to the sun, and also described as a sun-ray. These obelisks were commonly erected at the entrance to the temples of Isis or other temples of the numerous Sun-deities of Egypt, especially in the city of Heliopolis (Beth-shemesh), for its sun-symbolism as well as for its phallic meaning. Ezekiel chapter 8 clearly describes to us the mixture of Israel’s’ True Worship with that of Sun-worship in the form of Tammuz-worship (Tammuz being the young Sun-[sovereign]) in verse 14, as well as the 25 elders worshiping the Sun towards the East, verse 16. In verses 3 and 5 we read of “the image of jealousy” which was erected in the entrance to the Temple. Scofield regards this “image of jealousy” to be phallic.208 The Lamsa Bible as well as the New English Bible have rendered this as “image of lust”. Travellers to Rome all know about the famous Obelisk at the entrance of St. Peter’s in Rome. It is not a mere copy of an Egyptian obelisk, it is one of the very same obelisks that stood in Egypt in Heliopolis in ancient times! When the mystery religion came to pagan Rome, Egyptian obelisks, especially from helipolis, were hauled, at great expense, and erected by the Roman emperors. Caligula, in 37-41 B.C.E., had this very same obelisk brought from Heliopolis, Egypt, to his circus on the Vatican Hill, where now stands St. Peter’s is 83 feet high (132 feet with its foundation) and weighs 320 tons. Pope Sixtus V ordered it to be moved a little in 1586, in order to centre it in front of St. Peter’s. the sun-pillar from Heliopolis, which the Mighty One has ordered to be destroyed, was not destroyed. Rather, it was erected right in the entrance to St. Peter’s – a memorial to the fusion of Sun-worship with the Messianic Faith.

The majority of church buildings that have been built over the centuries have a tower. Each generation of church builders has copied the former generation, probably never questioning the origin of the idea. The Scriptural Temple of YHWH does not have a pointed tower or pointed pillar in its design. Similar to the sun-pillar or obelisks, these pointed towers of churches can be traced back to Babylon. Many of the towers that were built in the Babylonian empire were not watchtowers, but were religious towers. In those times, a stranger entering a Babylonian city would have no difficulty locating its temple, we are told, for high above the flat roofed houses, its tower could be seen.210 We are also told by The Catholic Encyclopedia, “It is a striking fact that most Babylonian cities possessed a…temple-tower.”211 Whether it be a tower, a steeple or a spire, they are all un-Scriptural. Several writers think, and not without some justification, the towers, steeples and spires with the ancient obelisk. “There is evidence,” says one, “to show that the spires of our churches owe their existence to the uprights or obelisks outside the temples of former ages.”212 Another says, “There are still in existence today remarkable specimens of original phallic symbols…steeples on churches…and obelisks.”213

However, this will continue only till the time of the end-time, for we read, “the Asherim and the sun-images shall rise no more,” Isa. 27:9 ASV. Indeed The Mighty One Himself will destroy them in the end-time, “and I will cut off your carced images and your pillars out of the middle of you, and you shall no more worship the work of your hand.” (Micah 5:13 ASV).

Origin of the Christian “fish” symbol: (The following definition is from The Assembly of IaHUShUA’ MaShIaChaH)

There was an upheaval against iconalotry (image worship) in the 8th – 9th centuries, and again by the Puritans in the 16th – 17th centuries. This sin has crept in again and those who love Yahushúa and His Father are again crying out against this sin, which has become less obvious due to the explanations offered in an attempt to justify this practice. Let us investigate the symbol of the fish so commonly displayed on the back of cars.

This symbol is used because Christians are told that…we are called to be “fishers of men”. However, another popular explanation is offered: It represents our Messiah, because of Augustine’s attempt to justify the adoption of another element of pagan worship the Church’s syncretism, “Christianising” pagan practices, emblems and even pagan deities. Paganism was mixed with the Messianic Faith. Rev. Hislop states that our Messiah “began to be popularly called ICHTHYS for ICHTHUSI, that is ‘the Fish’, manifestly to identify Him with Dagon.”122 Dagon was the Fish-[sovereign]. Augustine, the celebrated Church Father, rather childishly gave his reason for doing this, “If you combine the initial letters of the five Greek words, which are Iesous Chreistos Theou Uios Soter, Jesus Christ the Son of god the Saviour, they make the word ichthus, meaning fish, and the mystic meaning of this noun is Christ, because he had power to exist alive, that is, without sin, in the bottomless pit of our mortal life, as in the depths of the sea.”123 But Tertullian was even more frank in his blasphemous identification of our Messiah with a fish, by calling Him, “our Fish” . Tertullian wrote, “But we, little fishes, are born in water according to our Fish (Ichthus), Jesus Christ.”124 Why were these Church Fathers so keen to identify Yahushúa with a fish? In The Two Babylons, pp. 252 and 270, we read, “that Ichthus, or the Fish, was one of the names of Bacchus.” Bacchus was just on the name for Tammuz,125 the Sun-[sovereign]. the adoration or veneration of the fish emblem is clearly and emphatically forbidden in Deut. 4:15-19; and even more so once the hidden truth of the 3rd and 4th century’ idolatrous syncretism with the Fish-deity (identifying our Messiah with the Fish-[sovereign], has been revealed to us. 

Furthermore, the fish, as a pair of fishes, is part of the Chaldean (Babylonian) zodiac, as one of the signs of astral worship with the Sun at the centre of the zodiac. It therefore formed part of, and was a sign of, Sun-worship.126 Also, Hippolyt of Rome tells us that the Brahmans (sect of Indians, from whom some pagan idolatrous worship originated) regarded the sun to be as a fish.127 Further, the son of the Syrian [sovereignness] Atargatis was known as Ichthus too.128 Another Fish-[sovereign] was the Babylonian Ea, who became known amongst the Greeks as Oannes, similar to the Fish-[sovereign] of the Philistines, Dagon, half man and half fish.129 We also read the following findings of scholars, “The Fish is also associated with the sunthe god of the sunas a fish“, 130 also being an Egyptian phallic emblem,131 as well as a sign of fecundity, or the female generative organ, or of female [sovereignness].131

The Harlot Woman, Mystery Babylon of Rev. 17, has made the inhabitants of the earth drunk with the wine of her fornication, Rev 17:2, giving the inhabitants of the earth to drink out of the golden cup in her hand “full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.” Rev. 17:4. (In verse 5 we read that she is the Mother of Harlots.) This means spiritual fornication with idolatrous practices. Do read our Mighty One’s clear warning on “the likeness of any fish” in Deut. 4:18. [end of definition]

Now that we have explored the words above that Christianity has adopted (from The Assembly of IaHUShUA’ MaShIaChaH), let’s turn to some names that Elohim has given to people that have been changed through Hellenization (Greek opposed to Hebrew roots) by Christianity. The interesting fact to note about what Elohim has done to proclaim His Name and His esteem is that nearly all of the Prophets carry a part of YAHUAH’s Name in their names. And also, whenever His Name is found in one of their names, it gives a “witness” and “testifies” to and about Who YAHUAH is! 

Acts 10:43- “To Him all the Prophets witness that, through His Name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.”

Now, let’s see about the words AHLLELUYAH vs (sn- Hallelujah)

Here it is spelled in Ibrim (sn-Hebrew):“hywllh”;  So, which word is correct? Did you know that in 2,400 Languages this word is pronounced virtually the same!YAHUAH left us evidence” of what His Name is. But, Christianity has taught us that Ahlleluyah (they spell “Hallelujah) means “Praise the LORD,” but this is a lie of Satan. The first part of the word “Ahllelu” means “Praise Be Unto,” with the second part clearly showing the Father’s Name of “Yah.” So,  it should be “Praise Be Unto Yah!”

Thanks for listening, 777denny 

Titus: “For There Are Many Unruly Men, Senseless Talkers And Deceivers…Teaching…For The Sake Of Filthy Gain.”

Titus

Chapter 1

1. Sha’ul, a servant of Elohim and an emissary of Yahusha Anointed One Messiah, according to reverence,

2. in expectation of everlasting life which Elohim, who does not lie, promised before times of old,

3. but in its own times has manifested His word through preaching, with which I as entrusted according to the command of Elohim our Saviour,

4. to Titus, a genuine child according to our common belief: Favour, compassion, peace from Elohim the Father and the Master Yahusha Anointed One our Saviour.

5. The reason I left you in Crete was that you should straighten out what was left undone and appoint elders in every city as I cammanded you.

6. If anyone is unreprovable, the husband of one wife, having believing children not accused of loose befaviour, or unruly.

7. For an overseer has to be unreprovable, as a managing one of Elohim, not selfpleasing, not wroth, not given to wine, no brawler, not greedy for filthy gain,

8. but kind to strangers, a lover of what is good, sensible, righteous, set-apart, self controlled,

9. clinging to the trustworthy word, according to the teaching, in order to be able both to encourage by sound teaching and to reprove those who oppose it.

10. For there are many unruly men, senseless talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision,

11. whose mouths have to be stopped, who upset entire households, teaching what they should not teach, for the sake of filthy gain.

12. One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.”

13. This witness is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, in order for them to be sound in the belief,

14. not paying attention to Yehudite fables and commands of men who turn from the truth.

15. Indeed, all matters are clean to the clean, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving no matter in clean, but both their mind and conscience are defiled.

16. They profess to know Elohim, but in works they deny Him, being abominable and disobedient and unfit for any good work.

Chapter 2

1. But you, speak what is fitting for wound teaching:

2. the older men are to be sober, serious, sensible, sound in belief, in love, in endurance, 

3. the older women likewise are to be set-apart in behaviour, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of what is good,

4. in order for them to train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,

5. to be sensible, blameless, workers at home, good, subject tot their own husbands, in order that the word of Elohim is not evil spoken of.

6. Likewise, urge the young men to be sensible.

7. Show yourself to them an example of good works in all matters. In teaching show uncorruptness, seriousness,

8. soundness of speech beyond reproach, shame, having no evil word to say about you.

9. Servants should be subject to their own masters, to be well-pleasing in every way, not back-talking.

10. not stealing, but showing all good trustworthiness, so that they adorn the teaching of Elohim our Saviour in every way.

11. For the saving Gift of Elohim has appeared to all men,

12. instructing us to renounce wickedness and worlds lusts and to live sensibly, righteously and reverently in the present age,

13. looking for the blessed expectation and esteemed appearance of the great Elohim and our Saviour Yahusha Anointed One Messiah,

14. who gave Himself for us, to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a people, His own possession, ardent for good works.

15. Speak these matters, urge and reprove with all authority. Let no one despise you.

Chapter 3

1. Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,

2. not to slander anyone, not to be quarrelsome, to be gentle, showing all meekness to all men,

3. For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, led astray, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in evil an envy, being hated and hating one another.

4. But when the kindness and the love of Elohim our Saviour toward man appeared,

5. He saved us, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His compassion, through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Set-Apart Spirit,

6. which He poured out on us richly through Yahusha Anointed One Messiah our Saviour,

7. that having been declared right by His favour, we should become heirs according to the expectation of everlasting life.

8. Trustworthy is the word and in this regard I wish you to strongly affirm that those who have believed in Elohim should keep their minds on maintaining good works. This is good and profitable to men.

9. But keep away from foolish questions and genealogies and strife and quarrels about the Torah, for they are unprofitable and useless.

10. Reject a divisive man after the first and second warning,

11. knowing that such a one has been perverted and sins, being self-condemned.

12. When I shall send Artemas to you or Tuchikos, do your best to come to me at Nikopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there.

13. Do your best to send Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey, so that they lack none at all.

14. And our brothers should also learn to maintain good works, to meet urgent needs, so that they shall not be without fruit.

15. All those with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the belief. Favour be with you all. Amen.

Yahudah (Jude): To Those Who Are Called, Set-Apart by Elohim the Father and Preserved in Yahusha Messiah

Yahudah (Jude)

1. Yahudah, as servant of Yahusha Anointed One Messiah and brother of Ya’aqob, to those who are called, set-apart by Elohim the Father and preserved in Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

2. Compassion and peace and love be increased to you.

3. Beloved ones, making all haste to write to you concerning our common deliverance, I felt the necessity to write to you urging you to earnestly contend for the belief which was once for all delivered to the Set-apart Ones.

4. For certain men have slipped in, whose judgment was written about long ago, wicked ones perverting the favour of our Elohim for indecency and denying the only Master Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH and our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

5. But I intend to remind you, though you once knew this, that Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH , having saved a people out of the land of Mitsrayim, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.

6. And the messengers who did not keep their own principality, but left their own dwelling, He has kept in everlasting shackles under darkness for the judgment of the great day.

7. Even as Sedom and Amorah and the cities around them in a similar way to these, having given themselves over to whoring and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, undergoing judicial punishment of everlasting fire.

8. In the same way, indeed, these dreamers defile the flesh and reject authority and speak evil of esteemed ones.

9. But Mika’el the chief messenger, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Mosheh, presumed not to bring against him a blasphemous accusation, but said, ” Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH rebuke you!”

10. But these blaspheme that which they do no know. And that which they know naturally, like unreasoning beasts, in these they corrupt themselves.

11. Woe to them! Because they have gone in the way of Qayin and gave themselves to the delusion of Bil’am for a reward and perished in the rebellion of Qorah.

12. These are rocky reefs in our love feasts, feasting with you, feeding themselves without fear, waterless clouds borne about by the winds, late autumn tress without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots,

13. wild waves of the sea foaming up their own shame, straying stars for whom blackness of darkness is kept forever.

14. And Hanok, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied of these, saying, “See, Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH comes with His myriads of Set-Apart Ones,

15. to execute judgment on all, to punish all who are wicked among them concerning all their wicked works which they have committed in a wicked way and concerning all the harsh words which wicked sinners have spoken against Him.”

16.These are grumblers, complainers, who walk according to their own lusts and their mouth speaks proudly, admiring faces of others for the sake of gain.

17. But you, beloved ones, remember the words spoken before by the emissaries of our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah,

18. because they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own wicked lusts.

19. These are the ones who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.

20. But you, beloved ones, building yourselves up on your most set-apart belief, praying in the Set-Apart Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah unto everlasting life.

22. And show compassion toward some who are doubting,

23. but others save with fear, snatching them out of the fire, hating even the garment of defiled by the flesh.

24. And to Him Who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of His esteem with exceeding joy,

25. to the only wise Elohim, our Saviour, be esteem and greatness and might and authority, both now and forever. Amen.

1 YOHANAN (1 JOHN) Father Elohim’s Commandments Are to Believe in Yahusha and to Love Believers in Yahusha Ha’Mashiach (Messiah)!

This book of 1 Yohanan (1 John) is a beautiful way for those interested in truth to understand what being a Natsari and part of the Natsarim of the Way of Yahusha Ha’Mashiach is all about, as we can plainly see that the commandments of Elohim are in fact plain and simple, and do NOT contain ANY language–  or even a suggestion — that Believers in Yahusha are commanded anywhere to observe the Jewish Sabbath — or any Jewish festivals (all are Sabbath Days). You will see that the commandments are to believe in Yahusha Anointed One Messiah (Yahusha Ha’Mashiach [Messiah, Anointed One, Savior, Redeemer -- but NOT Christ]), and to love those who believe in Yahusha Messiah, and to sin not, and to also keep away from idols.

1 Yohahana (1 John)

Chapter 1:

1. What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our own eyes, what we have looked upon and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life.

2.And the life was manifest and we have seen and bear witness  and announce to you that everlasting life which was with the Father and was manifested to us.

3. We announce to you what we have seen and heard, so that you too might have fellowship with us. And truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

4. And we write this to you in order that your joy might be complete.

5. And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that Elohim is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

6. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and are not doing the truth.

7. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Yahusha Anointed One Messiah His Son cleanses us from all sin.

8. If we say that we have not sin, we are misleading ourselves and the truth is not in us.

9. If we confess our sins, He is trustworthy and righteous to forgive us the sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His Word is not is us.

Chapter 2

1. My little children, I write this to you, so that you do not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Intercessor with the Father, Yahusha Anointed One Messiah, a righteous One.

2. And He Himself is an atoning offering for our sins, and not for our sins only, but also for all the world.

3. And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands.

4. The one who says, “I know Him,” and does not guard His commands, is a liar and the truth is not in him.

5. But whoever guards His Word, truly the love of Elohim has been perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

6. The one who says he stays in Him ought himself also to walk, even as He walked.

7. Beloved, I write no fresh command to you, but an old command which you have had from the beginning. The old command is the Word which you heard from the beginning.

8. Again I write you a fresh command, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light now shines.

9. The one who says he is in the light and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.

10. The one who loves his brother stays in the light and there is no stumbling-block in him.

11. But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

12. I write to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of His Name.

13. I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little children, because you have known the Father.

14. I wrote to you, fathers, because you have known Him from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong and the Word of Elohim stays in you and you have overcome the wicked one.

15. Do not love the world nor that which is in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16. Because all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life — is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17. and the world passes away and the lust of it, but the one doing the desire of Elohim remains forever.

18. Little children, it is the last hour. And as you have heard that the anti-messiah is coming, even now many anti-messiahs have come. This is how we know that it is the last hour.

19. They went out from us, but they were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would have stayed with us — but in order that it might be made manifest that none of them were of us.

20. And you have an anointing from the Set-Apart One and you know all.

21. I did not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it and because no falsehood is of the truth.

22. Who is the liar, except the one denying that Yahusha Anointed One is the Messiah? This is the anti-messiah, the one denying the Father and the Son.

23. No one denying the Son has the Father. The one confessing the Son has the Father as well.

24. As for you, let that stay in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning stays in you, you also shall stay in the Son and in the Father.

25. And this is the promise that He has promised us: everlasting life.

26. I have written this to you concerning those who lead you astray.

27. But the anointing which you have received from Him stays in you and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as the same anointing does teach you concerning all and is true and is no falsehood and even as it has taught you, you stay in Him.

28. And now, little children, stay in Him, so that when He appears, we might have boldness and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.

29. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone doing righteousness has been born of Him.

Chapter 3

1. See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of Elohim! For this reason the world does not know us because it did not know Him.

2. Beloved ones, now we are children of Elohim. And it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him and He is.

3. And everyone having this expectation in Him cleanses himself, as He is clean.

4. Everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.

5. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.

6. Everyone staying in Him does not sin. Everyone sinning has neither seen Him nor known Him.

7. Little children, let no one lead you astray. The one doing righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.

8. The one doing sin is of the devil, because the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested to destroy the works of the devil.

9. Everyone having been born of Elohim does not sin, because His seed stays in him and he is powerless to sin, because he has been born of Elohim.

10. In this the children of Elohim and the children of the devil are manifest: Everyone not doing righteousness is not of Elohim, neither the one not loving his brother.

11. Because this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, not as Qayin who was of the wicked one and killed his brother.

12. And why did he kill him? Because his works were wicked but those of his brother were righteous.

13. Do not marvel, my brothers, if the world hates you.

14. We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. The one not loving his brother stays in death.

15. Everyone hating his brother is a murderer and you know that no murderer has everlasting life staying in him.

16. By this we have known love, because He laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

17. But whoever has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need and shuts up his tender affections from him, how does the love of Elohim stay in him?

18. My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

19. And by this we know that we are of the truth and shall set our hearts at rest before Him,

20. that if our heart condemns us, Elohim is greater than our heart and knows all.

21. Beloved ones, if our heart does not condemn us, we have boldness toward Elohim.

22. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we guard His commands and do what is pleasing in His sight.

23. And this is His command, that we should believe in the Name of His Son Yahusha Anointed One Messiah and love one another, as He gave us command

23. And the one guarding His commands stays in Him and He in him. And by this we know that He stays in us, by the Spirit which He gave us.

Chapter 4

1. Beloved ones, do not believe every spirit, but prove the spirits, whether they are of Elohim, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

2. By this you know the Spirit of Elohim: Every spirit that confesses that Yahusha Anointed One Messiah has come in the flesh is of Elohim,

3. and every spirit that does not confess that Yahusha Anointed One Messiah has come in the flesh is not of Elohim. And this is the spirit of the anti-messiah which you heard is coming and now is already in the world.

4. You are of Elohim, little children and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

5. They are of the world, therefore they speak as of the world and the world hears them.

6. We are of Elohim — the one knowing Elohim hears us. He who is not of Elohim does not hear us. By this we know the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of the delusion.

7. Beloved ones, let us love one another, because love is of Elohim and everyone who loves has been born of Elohim and knows Elohim.

8. The one who does not love does not know Elohim, for Elohim is love.

9. By this the love of Elohim was manifested in us, that Elohim has sent His only brought-forth Son into the world, in order that we might live through Him.

10. In this is love, not that we loved Elohim, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be an atoning offering for our sins.

11. Beloved ones, if Elohim so loved us, we ought to love one another.

12. No one has seen Elohim at any time. If we love one another, Elohim does stay in us and His love has been perfected in us.

13. By this we know that we stay in Him and He is us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

14. And we have seen and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son, Saviour of the world.

15. Whoever confesses that Yahusha Anointed One is the Son of Elohim, Elohim stays in him and he in Elohim.

16. And we have known and believed the love that Elohim has for us. Elohim is love and he who stays in love stays in Elohim, and Elohim in him.

17. By this love has been perfected with us, in order that we might have boldness in the day of judgment, because as He is so are we in this world.

18. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear holds punishment and he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

19. We love Him because He first loved us.

20. If someone says, “I love Elohim,” and hates his brother, he is a liar. For the one not loving his brother whom he has seen, how is he able to love Elohim, Whom he has not seen?

21. And we have this command from Him, that the one loving Elohim should love his brother, too.

Chapter 5

1. Everyone who believes that Yahusha Anointed One is the Messiah has been born of Elohim and everyone who loves the One bringing forth also loves the one having been born of Him.

2. By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and guard His commands.

3. For this is the love for Elohim, that we guard His commands and His commands are not heavy,

4. because everyone having been born of Elohim overcomes the world. And this is the overcoming that has overcome the world: our belief.

5. Who is the one who overcomes the world but he who believes that Yahusha Anointed One is the Son of Elohim?

6. This is the One that came by water and blood: Yahusha Anointed One Messiah, not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the Truth.

7. Because there are three who bear witness: 

8. the Spirit and the water and the blood. And the three are in agreement. 

9. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of Elohim is greater, because this is the witness of Elohim which He has witnessed concerning His Son.

10. The one who believes in the Son of Elohim has the witness in himself, the one who does not believe Elohim has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the witness that Elohim has given concerning His Son.

11. And this is the witness: that Elohim has given us everlasting life, and this life is in His Son.

12. He who possesses the Son possesses life, he who does not possess the Son of Elohim does not possess life.

13. I have written this to you who believe in the Name of the Son of Elohim, so that you know that you possess everlasting life and so that you believe in the Name of the Son of Elohim.

14. And this is the boldness that we have in Him, that if we ask whatever according to His desire, He hears us.

15. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

16. If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin, not unto death, he shall ask and He shall give him life of those not sinning unto death. There is a sin unto death. I do not say that he should pray about that.

17. All unrighteousness is sin and there is a sin not unto death.

18. We know that everyone having been born of Elohim does not sin, but the one having been born of Elohim guards himself and the wicked one does not touch him.

19. We know that we are of Elohim and all the world lies in the wicked one.

20. And we know that the Son of Elohim has come and has given us an understanding, so that we might know the true One. And we are in the true One, in His Son Yahusha Anointed One Messiah. This is the true Elohim and everlasting life.

21. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Why is Christianity Beholden to Babylonian Holidays of Christmas and Easter (Mythology)? Follow the Mammon, Follow the Great Whore, and Become Little Spiritual Whores?: “Come Out From Among Them And Be Ye Separate, Says YHWH”

Christianity has taken it upon itself to promote Babylonian practices through their promotion of Christmas and Easter, both of which can follow their footprints right back to Babylon — and the man who founded it, Nimrod. First, we’ll start out by establishing the Babylonian roots of Christmas, then its roots with Easter, and then take a look at why Christianity has adopted these Babylonian practices, why it doesn’t want to get rid of them, and finally, we will reveal to all the horrible human toll consequences that result from Christian Zealots who demand that people celebrate these Pagan holidays.

Let’s start out by getting a good historical perspective on Christmas:

We have to go way BACK to Noah’s time, where Nimrod was the grandson of one of Noah´s son named Ham. Now, Ham had a son named Cush who married a woman named Semiramis. Cush and Semiramis then had a son and named him “Nimrod.” After the death of his father, Nimrod married his own mother and became a powerful King. 

Genesis 10:8 “And Kush brought forth Nimrod, he began to be a mighty one on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before Yahuah, therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before Yahuah.”

The scriptures go on to explain that Nimrod built and organized major cities, including BABEL, Accad, and Erech, and also built Resen, Calah and Nineveh in the land of Asshur (Genesis 10:10-12), with Asshur being another name for Assyria (Micah 5:6). These cities were home to all sorts perverted practices, all of it headed up by its ruler and high priest, Nimrod.

Tower of Babel in Iraq

But it is when Nimrod finally died that the Babylonian Mystery Religion continued on through his wife, Queen Semiramis. who upon Nimrod’s death, deified him as the Sun god, which became known in various cultures later as Baal ( “LORD” means Baal in Hebrew), Janus, Saturn, Baalim, Bel, Osiris, Bacchus and Molech.

And later, when Queen Semiramis gave birth to an illegitimate son, she claimed (Mythology) that he was Nimrod reborn — Nimrod Tammuz (where the Christians get their T [cross] from, Hebrew word in scripture means pole or beam) by name, also claiming that he was the promised seed of  the Creator (Genesis 3:15), the savior of mankind, with Semiramis becoming the mediator between man and this “god.” And, you had to pray through her to reach him, so Nimrod was deified as the god of the sun, Queen Semiramis became the Queen of Heaven, the goddess of the moon and fertility, and Nimrod Tammuz became the savior of the world in this Mystery Babylonian Religion.

Now, Nimrod had eventually been killed by an enemy, and his body cut into pieces and sent to various parts of his kingdom. Semiramis had all of the parts gathered — except for one part that could not be found, which was his reproductive organ. Semiramis then claimed that Nimrod could not come back to life without it, and claimed that Nimrod had ascended to the sun and was now to be called “Baal,” the sun god.

Queen Semiramis also proclaimed that when used in worship, Baal would be present on earth in the form of a flame, whether candle or lamp, thus Semiramis was creating a mystery religion, with the help of the father of lies, Satan, and setting herself up as a goddess, and claiming that she was immaculately conceived. She claimed that the moon was a goddess that went through a 28 day cycle and ovulated when full, and claimed that she came down from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River, which is to have happened at the time of the first full moon after the spring equinox. Semiramis became known asIshtar” which is pronounced “Easter,” and her moon egg became known as “Ishtar´s egg.” Ishtar soon became pregnant and claimed that it was the rays of the sun-god Baal that caused her to conceive,  bringing forth  a son named TammuzAnd according to Pagan legend, after Nimrod Tammuz died, he descended into the underworld, but because of the weeping of his mother, he mystically revived in the springing forth of the vegetation in Spring (EZEKIEL 8:14), much in the same way Queen Semiramis said the evergreen tree symbolized his father’s eternal life (Jeremiah 10:1-7). And they also ate sacred cakes with the marking of a “T” or cross on the top.

Thus, a false religion developed with its sun and moon worship, astrology, priests, idolatry, mysterious rites, human sacrifice, and much more, and this post-Flood festival was part of the false religion, Mystery Babylon. 

Genesis 11:4 “And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower whose top is in the heavens and make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over all the face of the earth…And Yahuah scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth…That is why its name was called Babel, because there Yahuah confused the language of all the earth and from there Yahuah scattered them over the face of all the earth.”

So then, ‘Babel’ means ‘confusion, and when the people were scattered, they carried their  Sun god religion with them, with some building pyramids reminiscent of the tower of Babel as part of their Mystery religion. And indeed, remnants like them throughout world, including in Iraq, South and Central America, Burma and even China. And almost every idolatrous practice had its origins at Babel, as the people scattered from Babel with different languages, using different names for Nimrod and Semiramis. Some called her the Mother Goddess “Ishtar” (which is originally pronounced Easter), while in other lands, she was called Eostre, Astarte, Ostera, and Eastre, and also called the Mother goddess, Wife of Baal, Ashtaroth or Ashtoreth, and, of course, the Queen of Heaven (Judges 2:13 and Jeremiah 44:17-19). She was  also worshiped as Mother Naturethe goddess of Spring, the god of fertility,  and the goddess of the moon.

 Although in ancient Babylon the goddess figure Semiramis was the mother of the Sumerian deity Tammuz, he is Attis to the Phoenicians, and Adonis to the Greeks, etc. In each legend, he dies young and his birth and death are honored on his birthday which coincided with the Winter Solstice, which was celebrated on December 25th. Part of the religious ritual involved cutting down a young green evergreen tree (death of tree) as a way of commemorating the premature death of Tammuz.

And just like Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah in the perverted Christian Bible) told us, this tree is then decorated in the fashion Jeremiah described.

“Thus said Yahuah , “Do not learn the way of the gentiles, and do not be awed by the signs of the heavens, for the gentiles are awed by them. For the prescribed customs of these peoples are worthless, for one cuts a tree from the forest, work for the hands of a craftsman with cutting tool. They adorn it with silver and gold and they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it does not topple.”

And so, with their Tammuz tree was the rite in which the women cried for the dead sovereign. Then shortly after Jeremiah’s time, we find that this idolatry had penetrated the Hebrew temple where we see Sun Worship and “Women Weeping for Tammuz.” (Ezekiel 16:14) This sun worship is closely related to the end of the Winter Solstice, when the sun begins to stay in the sky longer.

The boughs of holly and related accessories are directly descended  from the Druidic rituals and associated with the Wiccans — meaning Witchcraft. And even the ‘Yule log’ is a Babylonian word.

To learn a more thorough, in-depth perspective on Christmas, please see the articles: “Christmas or Christ-Mass, the Holiday Celebrated on December 25th With Deep Demonic, Pagan Roots” and “Do Christians Tell Lies? Take This Test To See If Yo Are Spreading Falsehoods On Accident — Or On Purpose!

And for all you Conservatives out there, our Founding Fathers did NOT celebrate Christmas or Easter, nor was there any real celebrating this Christianized Pagan holiday called Christmas since after the Civil War: “To Founding Fathers, Christmas Was No Big Deal

And what about Easter? Easter, which is derived from the name Ishtar, is actually closely related to the Tammuz tree, which the Christians call a “Christmas Tree,” these days. And the practice  of Christians participating in sunrise services originates with an early morning worship service in which the penitents face East at the dawn — which is exactly what was seen during Ezekiel’s time when the women wept for Ishtar’s son, Tammuz.

Christianity routinely defends the sunrise Easter service, maybe not realizing they are honoring the ancient Pagan Holy Day of Ishtar that predated Christianity by many centuries (see article PROVING Christianity was NOT the original ‘sect’ spoken of in scripture, but instead, they were called the  ‘Natsarim’ followers of the Way). In fact, the New Covenant clearly shows the Apostles honored Passover, while king Herod honored the Easter celebration. (Acts 12:2)

Easter has its origins in the world of the occult, with the Occult / Satanic calendar comprising of four periods of 13 weeks each.  Now, Occultists believe that numbers contain inherent power, with many basing their lives on numerology, which is is also a key component of astrology, which is another system occultists follow.  The conclusion is that the occult calendar is divided into 4 parts of 13 weeks each and that 13 x 4 = 52 weeks, which is exactly our calendar year.

In the occult system: the number 6 = man; the number 7 = divine,perfection or god; the number 13 = rebellion against authority and depravity.

According to 8th century scholar St. Bede (also known as the Venerable Bede\Bede, the Venerable), the name Easter is actually derived from the Scandinavian “Ostra” and the Teutonic “Ostern,” or “Eastre,” both of whom were goddesses of mythology and were identified with spring and fertility, with festivals for these goddesses celebrated on the first day of the vernal equinox — March 21. And important parts of these Pagan celebrations included gifts, the rabbit, and colored eggs  — all of which represented fertility.

Easter is steeped in the Mysteries of ancient Babylon — which is an evil and idolatrous system invented by and promoted by Satan. Ishtar is the name of the Babylonian goddess for whom Easter is named, with Ishtar being another name for Semiramis — the wife of Nimrod. Semiramis and Nimrod are the ones who instituted the building of the tower of Babel, and are the co-founders of all the counterfeit religions that have ever existed after the flood. This may be why the following is said about the Great Whore (Vatican has taken over the reigns as “BABEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH) “

Revelations 17:”…the great whore (Editor’s Note: Spiritual Idolatry) sitting on many waters, with whom the sovereigns of the earth committed whoring and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her whoring…And the woman was dressed in purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup filled with abominations and the filthiness of her whoring…”

Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 7:16 “And you, do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me, for I do not hear you. Do  you not see what they are doing in the cities of Yahudah and in the streets of Yerushalayim? The children are gathering wood, the fathers are lighting the fire and the women are kneading their dough, to make cakes for the sovereigness of the heavens and to pour out drink offerings to other mighty ones, to provoke Me.”

So, why do Christians want to provoke Yahuah?

1. In the commentary of the Ryrie Study Bible: The queen of heaven. The Assyro-Babylonian goddess Ishtar.

2. In the commentary of the NIV Study Bible: Queen of Heaven. A Babylonian title for Ishtar, an important goddess in the Babylonian pantheon.

3. In Ungers Bible Dictionary it says under the heading “Queen of Heaven” (Hebrew Meleketh hashshamayim, Jer 7:18; 44:17-19, 25) Astarte, an ancient Semitic deity, identical with Babylonian Ishtar (Venus)

In 325 AD, Emperor Constantine in the Council Nice ordered all Christian churches to celebrate the Resurrection of the Jewish Messiah on Easter Sunday, in opposition to the original followers of the Way, which were called the Natsarim , and who celebrated the Resurrection of Yahusha during the Passover [Nisan 14], which could fall on any day of the week. But the Christian Churches near Rome had abandoned the practice because they hated the Jews, and instead followed a floating date of the first Sunday after the first full moon of Spring, calling the celebration ‘Easter,’ after the Pagan goddess of Spring. And of this is verified below from the following quote from the Encarta Encyclopedia:

“An important historical result of the difference in reckoning the date of Easter was that the Christian churches in the East, which were closer to the birthplace of the new religion and in which old traditions were strong, observed [the Resurrection] according to the date of the Passover festival. The churches of the West, descendants of Greco-Roman civilization, celebrated Easter on a Sunday.

“Constantine the Great, Roman emperor, convoked the Council of Nicaea in 325. The council unanimously ruled that the Easter festival should be celebrated throughout the Christian world on the first Sunday after the full moon following the vernal equinox; and that if the full moon should occur on a Sunday and thereby coincide with the Passover festival, Easter should be commemorated on the Sunday following. Coincidence of the feasts of Easter and Passover was thus avoided.”

“The name [Easter] probably comes from Eastre, the Anglo-Saxon name of a Teutonic goddess of spring and fertility, to whom was dedicated a month corresponding to April. Her festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox; traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring, and used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts…” — Encarta Encyclopedia, article: Easter.

Baal signifies Lord, ruler, and is used as the designation of a Phoenician deity. Among the Chaldeans he was called Bell, or Belus. He was regarded as the generative, controlling principle, of which the sun or the planet of Jupiter was the symbol, and to the people the direct object of worship. With him was associated a female deity, Ashtaroth, the Greek Astarte, called Queen of heaven, the moon. But as Baal was also associated with the planet Jupiter, so was Ashtaroth with Venus.” — From Romans Commentary by Charles Hodge for Romans 11:4

And here is an actual quote from Constantine showing Rome’s hatred for the Jews.

“And truly, in the first place, it seems to everyone a most unworthy thing that we should follow the customs of the Jews in the celebration of this most holy solemnity, who, polluted wretches! having stained their hands with a nefarious crime, are justly blinded in their minds. It is fit, therefore, that rejecting the practice of this people, we should perpetuate to all future ages the celebration of this rite, in a more legitimate order, which we have kept from the first day of our “Lord’s” passion even to the present times. Let us then have nothing in common with the most hostile rabble of the Jews.” (Council of Nicea, pg. 52.)

[The sculptor of the Statue of Liberty was Auguste Bertholdi. He belonged to the Masonic Lodge in Paris. Before beginning the statue of liberty project, Bertholdi was seeking a commission to construct a giant statue of the goddess "Isis," the Egyptian Queen of Heaven, to overlook the Suez canal. The statue of Isis was to be of "a robed woman holding aloft a torch"] — The preceding is from: “IS THE STATUE OF LIBERTY PAGAN?” by William Dankenbring

Weeping for Tammuz: The Queen of Heaven and the dying god

NEWS BRIEF: “Among all the women who have ever lived, the mother of Jesus Christ is the most celebrated, the most venerated…Among Roman Catholics, the Madonna is recognized not only as the Mother of God, but also, according to modern Popes, as the Queen of the Universe, Queen of Heaven, Seat of Wisdom, and even the Spouse of the Holy Spirit.” — (Time Magazine, “Handmaid or Feminist?”, December 30, 1991, p. 62-66).

semiramis 1

Names For The Queen of Heaven:
Phoenicia — Ashteroth (and with the child –“Tammuz”)
Greece — Aphrodite and “Eros”
Rome — Venus and “Cupid”
Egypt – Isia and “Horus”
China — Mother Shing Moo 
Scandinavian or Nordic (Norway, Sweden) — Disa 
Rome — Juno, or Dove

The teachings of Semiramis’ Mystery Religion of mother and child:

  1. That Semiramis herself was the way to Elohim, adopting the title ”Queen of Heaven”.
  2. That she alone could administer salvation to sinners through various sacraments, such as the sprinkling of set-apart (Christians call “holy“) water.
  3. That her son Tammuz was tragically slain by a wild boar during a hunting trip.
  4. That he was, however, resurrected from the dead forty days later. Thus, each year afterward, the temple virgins would enter a forty-day fast as a memorial to Tammuz’ death and resurrection (weeping for Tammuz).
  5. After the forty-day fast, a joyful feast called ‘Ishtar’ took place, with colored eggs exchanged and eaten as a symbol of the resurrection (Easter). An evergreen tree was displayed and a Yule log was burned (Christmas[s]). Finally, hot cakes marked with the letter T (to remind everybody of Tammuz) were baked and eaten.

Now let’s turn to the beginnings of Christianity, where even their antisemitic early “church” (as opposed to “Assembly”) leaders point out that the original followers of the Way were NOT Christian, but instead, were called the ‘Natsarim.”

Here starts the beginning of an article written by Monroe W. Strickberger: The Role of Antisemitism In Early Christianity (pdf)

“My purpose in writing this article was to gather material showing that antisemitism was not a tangential or accidental event in the development of Christianity, but served important purposes. Instead of a diversion, antisemitism quickly became a necessity, for without it, Christianity would have been unable to gain credibility and support, and justify itself as an ancient divinely revealed religion.”

“Assemblies of the “Jewish Christians,” faithful to basic Jewish practices, remained SEPARATE (Editor’s Note: My Emphasis) from Gentile Christian churches, and were eventually declared “heretics“…Each group, depending on its description by a Christian historian, professed distinctive Jewish-Christian beliefs and practices. (Luomanen, see also Horrell 2000). Nonetheless, whatever their denomination, Jewish Christians were, in due course, officially labeled heretics by Gentile Christian Fathers (Eusebius, ca 330, Ecclesiastical History 2.27).”

And note the word “Vatican, for it  is actually defined as “Prophecy.” So, “Vatican City” actually means “City of Prophecy,” with the word “Vatic” found in a standard English dictionary and is identified with Prophecy.

In fact, the whole of Christianity can be seen as one of antisemitism at its very CORE, with the Vatican as the Great Whore persecuting throughout its history all those opposed to its Babylonian-inspired Mystery Religion, torturing many millions upon millions, and murdering up to 50,000,000 million or more, and doing all this while enriching itself and perverting the Truth and the Way to Eternal Life.

Here is an excerpt from the book, “Christian Antisemitism: A History of Hate“:

These conclusions “can now be fully justified by the most up-to-date scholarship, Christian as well as Jewish.’ Nicholls writes, ‘Many Jewish writers have said, quite simply, that the Nazis chose the Jews as the target of their hate because two thousand years of Christian teaching had accustomed the world to do so. Few Christian historians and theologians have been sufficiently open to the painful truth to accept this explanation without considerable qualification. Nevertheless, it is correct.’ Christian Antisemitism traces, over two millennia, the growing domination of Western culture by the Christian ‘myth’ (as Nicholls calls it) about the Jews, and shows how it still exerts a major influence even on the secularized ‘post-Christian world.’

And your Christian Bibles are corrupted with false names of people, false transliterations of words, and false Names of the Jewish Messiah, and of His Father. In FACT, holy is NOT the original Hebrew word (which Heaven speaks!) used to DISTINGUISH followers of Elohim (in YOUR Bibles as “LORD [pdf]),” which in Hebrew means ‘Baal‘), but, instead we are the Set-Apart-Ones, who are to be Set-Apart to obedient to the Set-Apart Father, Whom sent His Only Begotten Son, Ha’Mashiach, or ‘Anointed One,’ as the Set-Apart Messiah, Who later, after He had been murdered then risen from the dead, sent His Set-Apart Spirit to live in us after we are IMMERSED UNDER WATER  in the Name of the of Yahusha Messiah to be receives as Set-Apart Ones unto Eternal Life And, we will be received with welcome in the Kingdom of Heaven, IF we continue steadfast in the faith till the end of our days, just as Paul claimed he accomplished at the end of his days, before he was murdered.

And since the Vatican (Christianity) also promotes the concept of the ‘Trinity,” which is also from Babel, instead of binitarianism, which is the truth, we can fully establish that she is the Great Whore spoken of in scripture as prophesy. And, she and Christianity promote those “mysteries,” too!

There are 15 decades of prayer for a total of 150 recitations.  And during each decade of ten recitations, the Catholic contemplates on one of the “mysteries” of the church, as follows:

The Fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary are divided into three groups: the joyful, the sorrowful and the glorious.

Five Joyful Mysteries
The Mystery of Annunciation
The Mystery of Visitation
The Mystery of the Birth of the Lord
The Mystery Of the Presentation in the Temple
The Mystery of Finding Jesus in the Temple

The 5 Sorrowful Mysteries
The Mystery of the Agony in the Garden
The Mystery of the Scourging Pillar
The Mystery of the Crowning with Thorns
The Mystery of Jesus carrying his Cross
The Mystery of Crucifixion

The 5 Glorious Mysteries
The Mystery of the Resurrection
The Mystery of the Ascension of our Lord
The Mystery of the Descent of the Holy Spirit
The Mystery of the Assumption Of the Blessed Virgin
The Mystery of the Coronation of the Blessed Virgin as Queen of Heaven

The Mystery of the Trinity is the central doctrine of the catholic churchUpon it are based all the teachings of the church” — [Handbook for todays Catholic Page 16]

These are some of the Mysteries of Babylon, but there is a Mystery upon which all these Mysteries are based, and is a Mystery that is the root of all the wine in Babylon.

This is an excerpt from the article entitled, “From the Tower of Babel to False Religions in the End Time“:

[Archaeological studies revealed the ancient Babylonians had built pyramid-like structures called Zigguruts for the purpose of observing the planets in motion. The Tower of Babel was built for astrological purposes. "The earliest known astrological records date back to Babylon in 1645 BC, and the earliest horoscope to 410 BC. Astrology's origins can also be traced to several other locations and cultures, including Egypt, which developed sophisticated timekeeping and calendar science; Greece, where Ptolemy authored influential astrological and astronomical texts; and Rome, where many of the most learned men-including two emperors-were astrologers who wrote laws and counseled citizens based on the Stars."]

It is a FACT that the world’s religions can be traced back to astrolatry, the worship of the sun, moon, stars, and planets, and all of these were especially popular was BACK in Babylon, and can be traced back to Nimrod at the Tower of Babel.

Ancient religions of astrolatry (the worship of planets or stars) popularized the belief people possess immortal souls that could be separated from their bodies at death and ascend to the heavens, which formed the basis for astrology, the belief in reincarnation, necromancy, astral projection,  “ascended masters,” and many forms of Nature Worship (pantheism).

NOTE: ALL ancient mystery religions believe in soul-body separation and can be traced back to the religion of Nimrod.

The religion of Nimrod also popularized this pagan trinity:

To be certain, it was the city of Babylon that was the seat of  Satan, and continued to be until the fall of the Babylonian and Medo-Persian Empires, when he shifted his capital to Pergamos in Asia Minor, where it was written about by John (Yahuchanan) in Rev 2:12,13:

“And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write, “I know your works and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is…where Satan dwells.”

In B.C. 133,when Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos, died, he bequeathed the headship of the “Babylonian Priesthood” to Rome. And when the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia, (which is the region of Pergamos), they brought along with them the Mystery Babylonian Religion with its rites. They then set up a Pontiff who was head of the priesthood, which later the Romans accepted their civil ruler. And Julius Caesar was made Pontiff of the Etruscan Order in B.C. 74, and in B.C. 63 was made “Supreme Pontiff” of the “Babylonian Order,” thus becoming heir to the rights and title of Attalus, Pontiff of Pergamos, who actually made Rome his heir by will.

Thus the first Roman Emperor became the head of the “Babylonian Priesthood,” and Rome the successor of Babylon.

And here is Tammuz Nimrod… Satan’s Counterfeit:

Ezek (Yehezqel) 8:14,15.
“And He said to me, “You are to see still greater abominations which they are doing.” And He brought me to the door of the north gate of the House of Yahuah and I saw women sitting there, weeping for Tammuz.

Jeremiah 7: “The children are gathering wood, the fathers are lighting the fire and the women are kneading their dough, to make cakes for the sovereigness of the heavens and to pour out drink offerings to other mighty ones, to provoke Me.”

Yirmayahu (Jere) 44:4: “And I sent to you all My servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, “Please do not do this abominable matter that I hate!” But they did not listen or incline their ear, to turn from their evil, not to burn incense to other mighty ones.

Jere 7:18. “But since we ceased burning incense to the sovereigness of the heavens…”

Now, when Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos, died, in B.C. 133, he bequeathed the headship of the “Babylonian Priesthood” to Rome. When the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia, (the region of Pergamos), they brought with them the Babylonian religion and rites. They set up a Pontiff who was head of the priesthood. Later the Romans accepted this Pontiff as their civil ruler. Julius Caesar was made Pontiff of the Etruscan Order in B.C. 74. In B.C. 63, he was made “Supreme Pontiff” of the “Babylonian Order,” thus becoming heir to the rights and title of Attalus, Pontiff of Pergamos, who made Rome his heir by will.

Thus the first Roman Emperor became the head of the “Babylonian Priesthood,” and Rome the successor of Babylon.

The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holy days and seasons, use of calendars, processions, blessings on the fields; sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure, the ring in marriage, turning to the East, images at a later date, perhaps the ecclesiastical chant, and the Kyrie Eleison are all of pagan origin, and sanctified by their adoption into the Church.” — An Essay on The Development of the Christian Doctrine John Henry “Cardinal Newman” p.373.

Doctor Alexander Hislop, in his classic work, The Two Babylon’s, page 105, writes this: “To conciliate the Pagans to nominal Christianity, Rome, pursuing its usual policy, took measures to get the Christian and Pagan festivals [that’s the Sabbath and Sunday] amalgamated, and … to get Paganism and Christianity now far sunk in idolatry in this as in so many other things, to shake hands.” He says further: “A glance at the main pillars of the Papal system will sufficiently prove that its doctrine and discipline in all essential respects have been derived from BABYLON.”

“One cannot well refer to those cults of Babylon and Egypt and the rest as DEAD religions. For the echo of their ancient thunder is still to be heard reverberating in almost every form of faith existing today. Ancient Babylonian image worship is in the church today. Ancient Babylonian sun worship is there. Ancient Babylonian belief in the immortality of the soul is there. Yes, the echo of that thunder is still heard in the church today!” — Lewis Brown says this in The Believing World, page 112.

Jesse Hurlbut laments the results of Constantine’s making Christianity the state religion, free from all persecution. From that time, he points out, the church became totally subverted by politics and self-seeking opportunists.

“…the establishment of Christianity as the state religion became a curse.

“Everybody sought membership in the church, and nearly everybody was received. Both good and bad, sincere seekers after God and hypocritical seekers after gain, rushed into the communion. Ambitious, worldly, unscrupulous men sought office in the church for social and political influence….

‘The services of worship increased in splendor, but were less spiritual and hearty than those of former times. The forms and ceremonies of PAGANISM GRADUALLY CREPT INTO THE WORSHIP. Some of the OLD HEATHEN FEASTS BECAME CHURCH FESTIVALS WITH CHANGE OF NAME AND OF WORSHIP” (Hurlbut, The Story of the Christian Church, p. 79, (Editor’s Note: Emphasis Mine).

Will Durant, historian, wrote:

“…the god Christ was assimilated to the religious and philosophical traditions of the Hellenistic mind. Now the PAGAN WORLD — even the anti-Semitic world — could accept him as its own.

CHRISTIANITY DID NOT DESTROY PAGANISM; IT ADOPTED IT. The Greek mind, dying, came to a transmigrated life in the theology and liturgy of the Church…the Greek mysteries passed down into the impressive mystery of the Mass. Other PAGAN cultures contributed to the syncretic result. From Egypt came the idea of a divine trinity…from Egypt the adoration of the Mother and Child…From Phrygia came the worship of the Great Mother….The Mithraic ritual so closely resembled the eucharistic sacrifice of the Mass that Christian fathers charged the Devil with inventing these similarities to mislead frail minds. Christianity was the last great creation of the ancient PAGAN world” (p. 595).

H. G. Wells, in his Outline of History, writes this:

“The observance of the Jewish Sabbath, again, TRANSFERRED TO THE MITHRAIC SUN-DAY, is an important feature of many Christian cults…He [Editor's Note: Yahusha] did not say a word about the worship of his mother Mary in the guise of ISIS, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN. Much that is most characteristically Christian [so-called] in worship and usage, he ignored. Skeptical writers have had the temerity to deny that [Editor's note: Yahusha] can be called a Christian at all” (p. 445, emphasis mine, of course).

Writes Alexander Hislop in The Two Babylon,

The Christmas tree, now so common among us, was equally common in Pagan Rome and Pagan Egypt. In Egypt that tree was the palm tree; in Rome it was the fir; the palm tree denoting the Pagan Messiah, as Baal-Tamar, the fir referring to him as Baal-Berith. The mother of Adonis, the Sun-God and great mediatorial divinity, was mystically said to have been changed into a tree, and when in that state to have brought forth her divine son. If the mother was a tree, the son must have been recognized as the ‘Man the branch.’ And this entirely accounts for the putting of the Yule Log into the fire on Christmas Eve, and the appearance of the Christmas tree the next morning” (page 97).

Tree worship was very common among the ancients. Says Festivals, Holy Days, and Saints’ Days, The Christmas tree…recapitulates the idea of tree worship…gilded nuts and balls symbolizing the sun…all the festivities of the [heathen] winter solstice have been aabsorbed into Christmas Day…the use of holly and mistletoe to the Druidic ceremonies; the Christmas tree to the honours paid to Odin’s sacred fir….” (p. 236).

Writes Collins in Christmas Folklore:

“This idea of decorating homes on holidays is both worldwide and age-old….So the Saturnalian laurel, the Teutonic holly, the Celtic mistletoe, and the Mexican poinsettia have all attached themselves to this polyglot ceremony…

Many of the plants used at Christmas are SYMBOLS OF FERTILITY. Certainly any evergreen (fir, yew, laurel) with its ability to return verdure in the barrens months is appropriate, but by far the most interesting are the holly, the ivy, and the mistletoe. Holly, with its pricking leaves, white flowers, and red berries symbolizes the male reproductive urge. In fact, in the English carols…the holly is the male and the ivy is the female. This use of the plants was most likely BORROWED by the Christians along with other customs of the ROMAN SATURNALIA” (p. 22-23)

Ivy, holly’s mate, in ancient Grecian rites took its name from the girl who danced with such abandon and joy before Dionysius that she fell dead at his feet, then the pagan god, moved by her dance, turned her into the ivy that she might entwine whatever is near. Dionysius was the Greek version of the god of wine and revelry, another form of Bacchus, Tammuz, or Nimrod!

Says van Renterghem, further:

By absorbing such PAGAN FEASTS AND TRADITIONS, the Christian Church could subtly bring in its own theology: in this case, establishing the good Saint Nicholas, bringer of love and gifts, while grudgingly allowing the presence of the Olde Religion’s Herne/Pan, but only as a slave to Saint Nicholas. Thus, in parts of Europe, the Church turned Herne into Saint Nicholas’ captive, chained Dark Helper; none other than Satan, the Dark One, symbolic of all evil….

“In Holland and several other European countries, the Saint Nicholas figure is still highly esteemed. He appears as a tall, dignified, bearded, white-haired old man, dressed as a Catholic bishop, complete with cloak, mitre, and pastoral staff, a seemingly genuine Catholic saint, but with a bizarre, quite unsaintly habit of riding through the skies on a white horse, followed by his Dark Helper. It seems that our Catholic saint inherited some of these customs from the pagan god Wodan, who had also been a BEARDED, WHITE-HAIRED OLD MAN, also dressed in a hat and cloak, carried a staff (or spear), rode a white horse, and dragged along the same dark slave/helper on a chain” (p. 97).

Who was this Odin, or Woden, the original “Santa Claus“? He was the chief god of Norse mythology, a fierce fighter who carried a spear as his special weapon, and renown as a mighty hunter, and for his magical powers. Here is the declaration the below author declares of the connection between Odin/Wodan and Saint Nicholas:

“Wodan/Odin:…man’s friend, the mysterious Schimmel rider. Dragging his dark and devilish slave Eckhart along on a chain, he rides through the stormy skies. He leads the Wild Hunt, eluding, and finally subjugating, the powers of evil. He also wears a broad-brimmed hat, a wide mantel, holds his spear, and rides through the skies (replace his hat with a bishop’s mytre and the spear with a crozier, and we have the Dutch Saint Nicholas)” (p. 111).

In other words, Odin was another name for Nimrod.

Says Alexander Hislop, “The Wodan or Odin of Scandinavia can be proved to be the Adon of Babylon” (The Two Babylons, p. 133-134). Nimrod, Adon, or Adonis, of Babylon was the great “war-god.” Odin was the same. Nimrod, in the character of Bacchus, was the god of wine. Odin was said to partake of no other food but wine. The name of one of Odin’s sons, Balder, indicates the meaning of Odin’s own name. Balder is a form of the Chaldee Baal-zer, “The seed of Baal.” The Hebrew “z” in the later Chaldee frequently became a “d.” Baal and Adon both signify “Lord.” Since Balder is the “son of Baal,” as well as the “son of Adon,” or “Odin,” then Baal, Adon, and Odin must be the same person — representative of Nimrod, the first human to be deified and proclaimed by the pagans as a “god” after the Deluge!

Writes T. G. Crippen in Christmas and Christmas Lore,

“Now in December and the beginning of January there were several festivals which were intimately associated with the daily life of the Roman people. First, from the 17th to the 21st December, was the Saturnalia, the great Roman holiday….One might call it the Feast of Topsy-turveydom; when slaves were allowed for a few days to enjoy the semblance of freedom, were waited upon by their masters, and chose from amongst themselves a mock king to preside over their revels. Next, on the 22nd, came Sigillaria, the Feast of Dolls, when a fair was held, and dolls and other toys, mostly of earthenware, were given to children. Then, on 25th, came Brumalia, otherwise Dies Natalis Invicti Solis, The Birthday of the Unconquered Sun, when the days began to lengthen after the solstice…It is believed to have been instituted … by the emperor Aurelian, in honour of Mithras, the Persian sun-god…” (p. 8-9).

FACTS CONCERNING THE NEW ROMAN RELIGION CALLED, “CHRISTIANITY.”

  1. As early as 200 BCC, there were Pagan worshipers of Serapis that called themselves “Christians.”
  2. There were “Christians” in Egypt, Gnostic Sun-worshipers who knelt before huge ankhs (resembles the Christian Cross, with a loop above the transverse bar)
  3. The Serapis cult were worshipers of a Graeco-Egyptian sovereign and used this symbol at Alexandria, where the Emperor Hadrian wrote from Alexandria, saying: “Those who worship Serapis are Christians and those who call themselves Bishops of ‘Christ’ are vowed to Sarapis.”
  4. Alexandria was the launching point for this new fusion of a blended form of the Way of Yahusha with Babylon-inspired religions as we know today called, ‘Christianity,’ with the word “Christos” directly related to Krishna, Crestos and Chreston. These words literally mean “shining,” as they refer to the sun, with Krishna being the sun deity of the Hindu religion.
  5. Clement of Alenxandria said, “All who believe in Christ are called ‘Chestoi,’ that is good men.”
  6. Rome was the center of Christos Mithras worship.
  7. The word ‘Christianos’ was used in the Greek text as a device of scorn, since in the ancient world it conveyed a much different meaning that it does today.
  8. The use of the word ‘Christianos’ was a derisive, scornful label than meant they were like gullible, dumb, ‘beasts’ or ‘cretins.’
  9. Cretin: Noun — 1. A person suffering from cretinism. 2. A stupid, obtuse, or mentally defective person.; origin <French; Franco-Provencal dreitin, restin human being, literally, Christian (hence one who is human despite deformities) [Dictionary.com]
  10. Cretin: Noun — 1. Old-fashioned — a person afflicted with cretinism 2. Offensive — a person considered to be extremely stupid; From French cretin, from Swiss French crestin, from Latin Christianus Christian, alluding to the humanity of such people, despite their handicaps [Word English Dictionionary]
  11. Osiris and Mithras were both called “Chrestos,” which meant “good.”
  12. The word was adopted from Gnostic Paganism: The inscription “CHRESTOS” can be seen on a Mithra’s relief in the Vatican.
  13. During the time of Marcion, which war about 150 CE, Justin Martyr said that “Christians” were “Chrestor,” or “good men.”
  14. The Vatican was built upon ground that was previously devoted to the worship of Mithra (600 B.C.)
  15. The Orthodox Christian hierarchy is virtuously identical to the Mithraic version.
  16. Virtually all of the elements of Orthodox Christian rituals, from wafer, alter, doxology, etc. were all adopted from the Mirtha and earlier Babylonian Pagan Mystery Religions.
  17. Emperor Constantine brought leading religious leaders together to strengthen his kingdom by uniting them all through a common Faith of part Way of Yahusha mixed together with part of his Babyonian-inspired religions, and then proclaimed that Christmas (Mirthras/Osiris/Baal-the Lord) was to be celebrated on December 25th, during the Winter Solstice.
  18. Easter (Ishtar), also known as the mother of Baal (The Lord), which is pronounced, “Easter,” was a day that commemorated the resurrection of Tammuz, which is the sovereign of the Cross and represents the letter “T” in his name.
  19. The Tau cross was a symbol of the Roman sovereign Mithras and the Greek sovereign Attis, with their forerunner again being Tammuz, the Babylonian solar or sun sovereign, who was associated with fish, and the “T” for the cross, and being a solar sovereign,  his death and resurrection was celebrated every summer (Easter).
  20. Christianity as we know it today is a blend of Catholicism and Babylonian Mystery Religions that all started with Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis, with Constantine demanding obedience to his mandates of all bishops, elders and teachers, all of which were appointed by him. If any Jew wanted to become a Christian, he must adhere to Constantine’s Creed — 325 C.E.
  21. Constantine’s Creed: “I renounce all customs, rites, legalisms, unleavened breads and sacrifices of lambs of the Hebrews, and all the other feasts of the Hebrews, sacrifices, prayers, aspirations, purifications, sanctifications, and propitiations, and fasts and new moons, and Sabbaths, and superstitions and hymns and chants, and observances and synagogues, absolutely everything Jewish, every Law, rite and custom and if afterwards I shall wish to deny and return to Jewish superstition, or shall be found eating with Jews, or feasting with them or secretly conversing and condemning the Christian religion instead of openly confuting them and condemning their faith, then let the trembling of Cain and the leprosy of Gehazi cleave to me, as well as the legal punishments to which I acknowledge myself liable. And may I be an anathema in the world to come, and my soul be set down with Satan and the devils.”
  22. Furthermore, any follower of the “Jewish Messiah” (Yahusha Ha’Mashiach) who wanted to join the “holy community” was compelled to adopt a different set of rules and customs: “I accept all customs, rites, legalisms, and feasts of the Romans, sacrifices, prayers, purifications with water, sanctifications by Pontificus Maxmus (High Priests of Rome), propitiations, and feasts, and the New Sabbath “So! dei” (Day of the Sun), all new chants and observances, and all the foods and drinks of the Romans, every new law, rite and custom, of Rome, and the New Roman Religion.”

Serapis

Wikipedia — Sol InvictusThe Philocalian calendar of AD 354 gives a festival of “Natalis Invicti” on 25 December. There is limited evidence that this festival was celebrated before the mid-4th century. The idea that Christians chose to celebrate the birth of Jesus on 25 December because this was the date of an already existing festival of the Sol Invictus was expressed in an annotation to a manuscript of a work by 12th-century Syrian bishop Jacob Bar-Salibi. The scribe who added it wrote: “It was a custom of the Pagans to celebrate on the same 25 December the birthday of the Sun, at which they kindled lights in token of festivity. In these solemnities and revelries the Christians also took part. Accordingly when the doctors of the Church perceived that the Christians had a leaning to this festival, they took counsel and resolved that the true Nativity should be solemnised on that day.”

” Invictus (“Unconquered, Invincible“) was an epithet for several deities of classical Roman religion, including the supreme deity Jupiter, the war god MarsHerculesApollo and Silvanus.[8] It had been in use from the 3rd century BC.[9] The Roman cult to Sol is continuous from the “earliest history” of the city until the institution of Christianity as the exclusive state religion.

Serapis: Wikis — Serapis (Latin spelling, or Sarapis in Greek) was a syncretic Hellenistic-Egyptian god in Antiquity. His most renowned temple was the Serapeum of Alexandria.[1] Under Ptolemy Soter … a Greek-style anthromorphic statue was chosen as the idol, and proclaimed as the equivalent of the highly popular Apis.[2] It was named Aser-hapi (i.e. Osiris-Apis), which became Serapis, and was said to be Osiris in full, rather than just his Ka (life force).
HISTORY: The earliest mention of a Serapis is in the disputed death scene of Alexander (323 BC).[3] Here, Serapis has a temple at Babylon…

the cult was forbidden by the Theodosian decree.

The early Alexandrian Christian community appears to have been rather syncretic in their worship of Serapis and Jesus and would prostrate themselves without distinction between the two.[5] A letter inserted in the Augustan History, ascribed to the Emperor Hadrian, refers to the worship of Serapis by residents of Egypt who described themselves as Christians, and Christian worship by those claiming to worship Serapis, suggesting a great confusion of the cults and practices:

The land of Egypt, the praises of which you have been recounting to me, my dear Servianus, I have found to be wholly light-minded, unstable, and blown about by every breath of rumour. There those who worship Serapis are, in fact, Christians, and those who call themselves bishops of Christ are, in fact, devotees of Serapis. There is no chief of the Jewish synagogue, no Samaritan, no Christian presbyter, who is not an astrologer, a soothsayer, or an anointer. Even the Patriarch himself, when he comes to Egypt, is forced by some to worship Serapis, by others to worship Christ.[6]

THE COUNCIL OF NICAEA 325AD CREATES THE DOCTRINE AND THE GOD — From Cuthulan’s Blog

About four years prior to chairing the Council, Constantine had been initiated into the religious order of Sol Invictus, one of the two thriving cults that regarded the Sun as the one and only Supreme God (the other was Mithraism). Because of his Sun worship, he instructed Eusebius to convene the first of three sittings on the summer solstice, 21 June 325 (Catholic Encyclopedia, New Edition, vol. i, p. 792), Sabinius, Bishop of Hereclea, who was in attendance, said,”Excepting Constantine himself and Eusebius Pamphilius, they were a set of illiterate, simple creatures who understood nothing”(Secrets of the Christian Fathers, Bishop J. W. Sergerus, 1685,1897 reprint). It was at that puerile assembly, and with so many cults represented, that a total of 318 “bishops, priests, deacons, subdeacons, acolytes and exorcists” gathered to debate and decide upon a unified belief system that encompassed only one god (An Apology for Christianity , op. cit.).

The names of 53 gods were tabled for discussion. “As yet, no God had been selected by the council, and so they balloted in order to determine that matter… For one year and five months the balloting lasted…” (God’s Book of Eskra, Prof. S.L. MacGuire’s translation, Salisbury, 1922, chapter xlviii,paragraphs 36, 41).

Constantine returned to the gathering to discover that the presbyters had not agreed on a new deity but had balloted down to a shortlist of five prospects: Caesar, Krishna,Mithra, Horus and Zeus (Historia Ecclesiastica, Eusebius, c.325). Constantine was the ruling spirit at Nicaea and he ultimately decided upon a new god for them. To involve Celtic/Gaulic factions, he ruled that the name of the great Druid god, Hesus,(Greeks and Romans worshipped this god as Zeus) be joined with the Eastern Saviour-god, Krishna (Krishna is Sanskrit for Christ), and thus Hesus Krishna would be the official name of the new Roman god. A vote was taken and it was with a majority show of hands (161 votes to 157) that both divinities became one God.(Historia Ecclesiastica, Eusebius, c.325)

Finally, let’s explore the world-wide cost in human terms that these two holidays bring to the earth, as Elohim NEVER, EVER told anyone to celebrate them, and we’ll expose Christians, for their Christianity IS the “reason for the season.”

How many people go into financial difficulties? How many fires are started BECAUSE of Christmas celebrations? And how many people get injured, or killed BECAUSE they celebrated Christmas? One could argue that the entire world is depended upon the Christmas holiday in one way or another economically, since the few weeks surrounding Christmas determines a cornucopia of business decisions, including whether businesses will hire, fire or close down their doors for ever. And the Christians who use Charles Dickenson’s “Scrooge” (Scrooge was a Jew) label or other label to try in intimidate others, it is YOU who are fostering Spiritual Idolatry upon the entire world as ‘Little Whores’ of the Great Whore!

In conclusion, Christianity is based upon the Babylonian Mystery Religion of Nimrod/ Tammuz/Semiramis, with the Great Whore, the Vatican, spreading Babylonian abominations throughout the world, with Little Whores spreading other Babylonian-inspired abominations throughout the world.

And, remember also the times when the prophets (Psalms 137:8; Isaiah 47:1; Jeremiah 50:42; 51:33; Zachariah 2:7) called Israel the “daughter of Babel.” And also rremember that Elohim called Abram (Genesis 11:31; Nehemiah 9:7) out of Babylon (Ur, within the Babylonia plains).

So, what’s in a name, anyway –Babylon, Nimrod Tammuz or otherwise? Yasha-Yahu (Isaiah) means “Salvation of Yah.” Yirme-Yahu (Jeremiah) means “Exultation of Yah.” Eli-Yahu means “My El is Yahuah.” Mattith-Yahu (Mathew) means “Gift of Yah.” Yahu-dah (Judah) means “Yah be Praised. The name Jezebel means [Woman of Baal]. This woman led Israel into national apostasy to follow other sovereigns. There was no rain in Israel for 1260 days. [James 5:17]. Just as prophesied by Moses should Israel go after other sovereigns. [Deu 11:16,17].

Natsarim and Nazirite — RELATED WORDS

Natsar  = nun, Tsadee, resh 

Nazir = nun, zayin, yod, resh 

The original Hebrew for “Nazarene”  is based upon the root word, “Natsar,” which means to ‘watch,’ and this is because the area around the burg Natsareth was named for it, hence the word “Gennetsaret” (vale of Netsar), which refers to the whole district, with the town being situated on high ground, and providing a panoramic view of the surroundings.

And the “brow of the hill” that Yahusha’s townfolk tried to throw Him over gave the name to the town itself, Natsareth  (natsar, the root), and  hence means “watchtower,” with the Natsarim by extension being “watchmen,”  fulfilling the prophecies of YashaYahu 11:1, YirmeYahu 31:6, and Zec. 6:12. And His actual NAME is revealed at ZekarYah 3 (ZekarYah 3: 6 And the messenger of Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH witnessed to Yahusha, saying…”Now listen, Yahusha the high priest, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men of symbol. For look, I am bringing forth My Servant — the Branch.”)

The change in vowels forms the root “netser,” meaning “branch,” and it’s like a synonym, but has the same spelling.

“He shall be called a Natsarene” (Mt. 2:23) is referring to “netser,” meaning “branch,” and “natsar,” meaning “to watch.” So, Believers in Yahusha can be called both branches and watchmen for this reason, also keeping in mind that Yahusha said, “I am the vine, you are the branches” (Yahuchanon 15:5).

The FACT is that the original followers of Yahusha were NOT known as “Christians,” but, instead were known as the “Natsarim” (the plural of Natsari). And you will notice the “sect of the Nazarenes” written in your translations at Acts 24:5.

As far as the “J” in Jehovah,  it was unknown in any alphabet until the 14th century. And the root word “hovah” or “avah” in Hebrew means “wicked or perverse.” Even if you took the letter “J” off and added a “Y” to be “Yehovah,” it still would not be the letters contained in the Father’s true Name. Yahuah Elohim is intertwined in all of His creation, and the “El” of Elohim is also in the name of messengers, prophets, apostles and others. A-men (pronounced: aw-mane)

The Son’s Name is spelled “YHWSHA” or “YHUSHA,” and the Hebrew letters are Yod, Hey, Uau, Shin, Ayin (יהושע), and is pronounced YAH-OO-SHA. Yahusha means Yah is Salvation” or “Yahuah Saves,” and is taken from the root word “Yasha,” meaning salvation. He was sent as a Savior for the world, “And there is no deliverance in anyone else, for there is no Name under the heavens given among men by which we need to be saved.” [Acts 4:12]

And one final note to all those Christians who refuse to CHOOSE to “revere” — but NOT to “fear” and “dread” Elohim — and to those who spread falsehoods about the Jewish Savior coming before the revealing of the anti-messiah: Your falsehoods will fail, and here is your future:

2013 in review — Yahusha Ha’Mashiach, The Gift of Eternal Life

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
