Do Christians Tell Lies? Take This Test To See If You Are Spreading Falsehoods On Accident — Or On Purpose!

Many Christians may not even know that they are spreading falsehoods — and possibly telling many falsehoods many times every single year that they live and breath on planet Earth. And it is one thing for one to not  know one is spreading falsehoods, and then to repent and change their views and their behavior once they learn that they have been duped, but quite another to not even care if one is spreading falsehoods — or to learn that they are — and not care ENOUGH to change their BEHAVIOR, though now they KNOW they are spreading falsehoods. Please take the time to look over the list below, the first 4 of 8 coming with commentary and scripture to PROVE that they are indeed falsehoods. Thank you.

*List is in no particular order of importance

Falsehood #1. Christians claim that Christmas is scriptural and the celebration thereof with Santa, the Elves, Jack Frost, Christmas Trees, Yule Logs, Christmas Wreaths, caroling, gift-giving, mixing December 25 with the actual date of the birth of the Jewish Savoir (which most certainly was NOT on that Pagan-celebrated date) and all the Christmas tree trimmings and such are GOOD!

Response to Christians who claim #1 is true: This is a falsehood. All of the items listed in #1 are of Pagan origins and pertain to Pagan RITUALS, including the date of December 25, which is the Pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice. The five-pointed star is used by Satanist today, and you BOW DOWN to get your presents under the tree:

Jer 10:2-4: “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 a cutting tool. They adorn it with silver and gold, they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it does not topple.’”

Deu 7:26 “And do not bring an abomination into your house, lest you be accursed like it. Utterly loathe it and utterly hate it, for it is accursed.” (SEE ALSO EZEK. 6:13)

Christmas was outlawed in all 13 colonies, because it was based on Paganism. The tree is interpreted originally by the occult as a phallus, with the ornaments being as testicles, and the tinsel being as semen and the wreath being as a vagina, and together they are fertility symbols.  Yahusha was born during the feast of Sukkoth, called “Booths,” “Tabernacles” or Tents. That’s the “booth” He was born in, during the 7th moon of the Hebrew calendar. It is understood that the early settlers of North America knew these things.

Here is the Encyclopedia Britannica, 1946 edition: “Christmas (i.e., the Mass of Christ)  … Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the church…”

Here is the Encyclopedia Americana, 1944 edition: “Christmas…It was, according to many authorities, not celebrated in the first centuries of the Christian church, as the Christian usage in general was to celebrate the death of remarkable persons rather than their birth…” (The “Communion,” which is instituted by New Testament Bible authority, is a memorial of the death of Christ.) “…A feast was established in memory of this event [Christ's birth] in the FOURTH CENTURY. In the fifth century the Western Church ordered it to be celebrated forever ON THE DAY OF THE OLD ROMAN FEAST OF THE BIRTH OF SOL, as no certain knowledge of the day of Christ’s birth existed.”

Again from the Encyclopedia Britannica: “Certain Latins, as early as 354, may have transferred the birthday from January 6th to December 25, WHICH WAS THEN A MITHRAIC FEAST…OR BIRTHDAY OF THE UNCONQUERED SUN…The Syrians and Armenians, who clung to January 6th, accused the Romans of sun worship and idolatry, contending…that the feast of December 25, had been invented by disciples of Cerinthus…”

The pagans of northern Europe celebrated their own winter solstice, known as Yule, which represented the pagan Sun God, Mithras, being born. Observed on the shortest day of the year as the ‘sun god’ grew and matured, it was customary to light a candle to encourage Mithras, and the sun, to reappear next year.

They would burn very large Yule logs in honor of the sun, the word Yule itself meaning “wheel,” as in a pagan symbol for the sun. Mistletoe was considered a sacred plant, and they had a custom of kissing under the mistletoe as a fertility ritual, with holly berries thought to be a food of the gods.

Live evergreen trees were brought into homes during the winter as a reminder that their crops would soon grow again, with evergreen boughs sometimes carried as totems of good luck and present at weddings, representing fertility. The dreaded Druids used the tree as a religious symbol, engaging in their ceremonies while surrounding and worshipping huge trees.

So, the evergreen tree was a symbol of the essence of life and was regarded as a phallic symbol in fertility worship, with Witches and other Pagans regarding the Red Holly as a symbol of the menstrual blood of the Queen of Heaven (which is discussed later as also having Vatican ties), also known as Diana, and the holly wood was used by Witches to make wands.

And also, the white berries of mistletoe were believed by pagans to represent droplets of the semen of the sun god!

In ancient Grecian rites, ivy, which is holly’s mate, get’s its name from a girl who danced with such abandon and joy before Dionysius that she fell dead at his feet, with the Pagan god moved by her dance, turning 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 the gods Bacchus, Tammuz (T or sign of the cross), or Nimrod.

The mistletoe was referred to by Pagans as the “Golden Bough” and was supposed to posses the power of revealing treasures in the earth, and was formed into a “Divining Rod.” It was also seen as the “Seat of Life” of the sacred oak, and as an emanation of the sun’s fire. Kissing under the mistletoe is a survival of Saturnalian sexual licentiousness and bawdy behavior, which was commonplace at the Saturnalia.

The word “Christmas” is a combination of the words “Christ” and “Mass, with the word “Mass” meaning death, and was coined by the Roman Catholic Church (RCC).

Turning to the lie that many tell their children concerning the existence of Santa, Santa is supposed to enter the house through the chimney, and was developed from an old Norse legend. The Norse believed that the goddess Hertha appeared in the fireplace and brought good luck to the home.

The original “Nicholas” was Nimrod, the “mighty one against Elohim,” with the word “Nicholas” meaning “mighty one, powerful.” Traditions of a “god” who gave gifts under an evergreen tree dates back over 1,000 years before the so-called St. Nicholas of Asia Minor, and among the Scandinavians, it was the god Odin or Woden who left special gifts during the Yuletide season under the evergreen treehis sacred tree.

Says van Renterghem: “He was a compilation of two separate saints (one from Myra in Asia Minor, the other from Pinora), both of whom were — as the Church nowadays admits — nothing more than Christianized water deities (possibly related to the Greco-Roman god Poseidon/Neptune).”

Odin is another name for Nimrod, who was “the mighty hunter before (meaning against) Elohim” (Gen. 10:9).

Says Alexander Hislop: “The Wodan or Odin of Scandinavia can be proved to be the Adon of Babylon.” 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!

Alexander Hislop: “That Christmas was originally a Pagan festival, is beyond all doubt. The time of the year, and the ceremonies with which it is still celebrated, prove its origin. In Egypt, the son of Isis, the Egyptian title for the queen of heaven, was born at this very time, ‘about the time of the winter solstice.’ The very name by which Christmas is popularly known among ourselves — Yule-day — proves at once its Pagan and Babylonian origin. ‘Yule’ is the Chaldee name for an ‘infant’ or ‘little child;’ and as the 25th of December was called by our Pagan Anglo- Saxon ancestors, ‘Yule-day,’ or the “Child’s day,’ and the night that preceded it, ‘Mother-night,’ long BEFORE they came in contact with Christianity, that sufficiently proves its real character.”

The Saxons offered a boar in sacrifice to the sun, to propitiate the queen of heaven on Dec. 25th, with the boar in Pagan Mythology having slain the false Pagan Messiah. The boar was prominent in the Feast of Saturn at Rome, with the boar’s head still a dish in England at Christmas dinner. Says Hislop: “There can be no doubt, then, that the Pagan festival at the winter solstice — in other words, Christmas — was held in honor of the birth of the Babylonian Messiah.”

And what other things coincide with the date of Dec. 25th? The largest pagan religious cult which celebrated sun worship was Mithraismincelebrated on Dec. 25 . They called it “the Nativity of the Sun,”  with Mithras, the sun-god, supposedly born at this time, together with Osiris, Horus, Tammuz, Hercules, Bacchus, Adonis, Jupiter — all the Pagan Messiahs, possibly indicating that all these pagan sun-gods and deities trace their roots back to the original sun-god of ancient Babylon — Nimrod.

T. G. Crippen writes: “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…”

Mithraism was the most popular belief in Rome and Greece, Mithra being a Persian male sun god. Dec. 25th had been the date of the festival called the Nativity, celebrating the birth of Mithra.

Now let’s turn to the tree trimmings. How about the star on top? It’s a five point star related to Nimrod. And Buddhists baked cookies in the shape of sun gods and tied chestnuts with yule ribbons with colors of red and green and tied them to oak trees or evergreens. Little girls would walk through town with candles upon their heads to welcome the sun god into their villages. Christmas wreath are round, symbolizing the “everlasting sun.” Pagans put candles on trees and window sills in a bid to ask the blessings of the winter god.

In some traditions, an evergreen tree had gifts on it and was lit on fire to please their gods. The Druids tied apples to the branches of evergreens to thank their god, Oden, also hanging lighted candles on them to honor the sun god. Round Christmas ornaments represent the sun, thus the sun god.

Yuletide represents the 12 days of Christmas, starting on Dec. 25 and running to Jan. 6, with the end date being the time of the birth of Aeon, the god of eternity or time, with a virgin giving birth to Aeon.

The third day of Christmas: A day dedicated to children. Holy Innocent’s Day is associated with the children slaughtered by King Herod. One custom was for parents to beat their children on this day, believing that they would then be spared from further suffering in the year to come.

The fourth day of Christmas: The Feast of Fools was a time when ordinary people escaped from the constraints of everyday life and could behave in an abandoned manner, carrying out parodies of church services and reversing the order of hierarchy for a day. Mostly observed on or near the 29th of December.

The fifth day of Christmas on Dec 30 or Bringing in the Boar: The boar was sacred to the Celts, and was associated with gods. Parading a boar or boar’s head was associated with this day.

The sixth day of Christmas on Dec. 31st, New Year’s Eve or Hogmanay: A custom with an ancient origin to fumigate the house with the smoke of juniper, believing the herb had a magical association with gifts and good fortune.

The Seventh day of Christmas, or New Year’s Day, the Kalends of January: The ancient custom of wassailing was for the blessing of apple trees for a good harvest in the year to come, with the largest tree in an orchard receiving an offering of cider poured over its roots, and bread or cake dipped in cider would be placed in its branches. Shouting and banging metal objects around the tree was supposed to further drive out evil spirits.

Falsehood #2. Christians claim that Easter is scriptural and the Easter Eggs and Easter Bunnies are fine to incorporate into this day.

Response to assertion #2: This is a falsehood, and the Easter Eggs and Easter Bunnies are of Pagan origin.

The name Easter can be traced back to the name “Astarte,” the Syrian sun goddess, known as the “queen of heaven.

At the end of the winter, the season changes because the earth tilts as it rotates on its axis. Spring arrives when the sun is over the equator. On the first day of Spring, known as the vernal equinox (which means “spring equal night”), both day and night are an equal twelve hours long. Which meant that the long winter nights were over, and that the sun again began to take control. This time was marked by celebrations and festivals to thank the Pagan gods. These ancient rituals were fertility festivals, observed in hopes that the gods would bless them with fertile flocks and fields. Animal and child sacrifices were offered to the gods to receive this favor.

Venerable Bede, an eighth century Christian historian, indicated that the name Easter came from the festival of “Oestre” (also found as “Ostere,” “Ostara), the Anglo-Saxon goddess of Spring and fertility. There was also a Teutonic (Germanic) goddess known as “Eostre” (also found as “Eastre,” ” Estre”), who was the goddess of dawn and light, fertility, and Spring. It is from these deities where the name Easter actually originates. The festival in her honor, was held during the vernal equinox. — Controlled by the Calendar p 42

EASTER — THE ORIGIN OF EASTER: The English word Easter and the German Ostern come from a common origin (Eostur, astur, Ostara, Ostar), which to the Norsemen meant the season of the rising (growing) sun, the season of new birth. The word was used by our ancestors to designate the Feast of New Life in the spring. The same root is found in the name for the place where the sun rises (East, Ost). The word Easter, then, originally meant the celebration of the spring sun, which had its birth in the East and brought new life upon earth. This symbolism was transferred to the supernatural meaning of our Easter, to the new life of the ‘Risen Christ,’ the eternal and uncreated Light. Based on a passage in the writings of Saint Bede the Venerable, the term Easter has often been explained as the name of an Anglo-Saxon goddess (Eostre), though no such goddess is known in the mythologies of any Germanic tribe. Modern research has made it quite clear that Saint Bede erroneously interpreted the name of the season as that of a goddess. — Francis X. Weiser, Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs (New York: Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc., 1958), p. 211. Copyright 1952 by Francis X. Weiser.

What means the term Easter itself? It is not a Christian name. It bears the Chaldean origin on its very forehead. Easter is nothing else than Astarte, one of the titles of Beltis, the queen of heaven, whose name, as pronounced by the people of Ninevah, was evidently identical with that now in common use in this country. That name, as found by Layard on the Assyrian monuments is Ishtar. — The Two Babylons, by the Rev. Alexander Hislop, published 1943 and 1959 in the U.S. by Loizeaux Brothers, Neptune, New Jersey, page 103.

The 11th edition of Encyclopedia Britannica’s “Easter” article states, “There is no indication of the observance of the Easter festival in the New Testament, or in the writings of the apostolic church Fathers.” The ecclesiastical historian, Socrates is quoted in the same article as he points out that neither the Lord or His apostles enjoined the keeping of this day. He says, “The apostles had no thought of appointing festival days, but of promoting a life of blamelessness and piety.” He attributes the observance of Easter by the church to the perpetuation of an old usage, “just as many other customs have been established.” Early Church reformers such as Calvin and Knox protested strongly against Easter because of its Pagan origins. Observance of the holiday was not widely celebrated in America until well after the Civil War. — ( Easter: Its Story and Meaning by Alan Watts; Babylon, Mystery Religion, Ralph Woodrow; Calvin Tracts; Knox’s History)

Easter has long been known to be a Pagan festival, and America’s founders knew this!

A children’s book about the holiday, Easter Parade: Welcome Sweet Spring Time!, by Steve Englehart, p. 4, states, “When the Puritans came to North America, they regarded the celebration of Easter — and the celebration of Christmas — with suspicion. They knew that Pagans had celebrated the return of spring long before Christians celebrated Easter…for the first two hundred years of European life in North America, only a few states, mostly in the South, paid much attention to Easter.” Not until after the Civil War did Americans begin celebrating this holiday: “Easter first became an American tradition in the 1870s” (p. 5). Remarkable! The original 13 colonies of America began as a “Christian” nation, with the cry of “No king but King Jesus!” The nation did not observe Easter within an entire century of its founding. What happened to change this?

ASHTAROTH—THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN: Astarte (Easter) — worship was always associated with the worship of Baal or sun worship. Astarte was Baal’s wife. Notice that another name for Astarte was Ashtaroth. The following quote makes this point clear: “What means the term Easter itself? It is not a Christian name. It bears its Chaldean origin on its very forehead. Easter is nothing else than Astarte, one of the titles of Beltis, the queen of heaven…Now, the Assyrian goddess, or Astarte, is identified with Semiramis by Athenagoras (Legatio, vol. ii. p. 179), and by Lucian (De Dea Syria, vol iii. p. 382)…Now, no name could more exactly picture forth the character of Semiramis, as queen of Babylon, than the name of ‘Asht-tart,’ for that just means ‘The woman that made towers’…Ashturit, then…is obviously the same as the Hebrew ‘Ashtoreth’” –(Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, pp. 103, 307-308).

EGG — A sacred symbol of rebirth and fertility among the Babylonians, Druids, Egyptians and other pagan cultures. Dyed eggs were used as sacred offerings during the pagan Easter season and were also used as symbols of the Goddess Oestre or Ishtar in various cultures. — (Encyclopedia Britannica, Babylon Mystery Religion)

During the rule of Caesar Augustus, Hyginus, an Egyptian who was the librarian at the Palatine library in Rome, wrote: “An egg of a wondrous site is said to have fallen from heaven into the river Euphrates. The fishes rolled it to the bank, where the doves having settled upon it, and hatched it, out came Venus, who afterwards was called the Syrian goddess (Astarte).” Part of their worship to this goddess was the ritual involving the “golden egg of Astarte.” This was where we got the tradition of the Easter egg.

The egg was a mystical symbol to the Pagan religions of Egypt, Japan, Greece, Persia, Phoenicia, India, and Babylon. On page 496, he wrote: “The serpent entwined round the egg, was a symbol common to the Indians, the Egyptians, and the Druids. It referred to the creation of the universe. A serpent with an egg in his mouth was a symbol of the universe containing within itself the germ of all things that the sun develops. The property possessed by the serpent, of casting its skin, and apparently renewing its youth, made it an emblem of eternity and immortality.” Thus, we see an indication that the egg initially represented serpent worship, and, byextension, Satan worship. — Albert Pike, an Illuminati member, in his Masonic treatise “Morals and Dogma”

RABBIT or HARE — A Pagan symbol of fertility and new life. — (Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs) Bede, the eight century English monk and scholar related that the Tutonic goddess of spring and fertility, Eastre, had the hare as her symbol. (The American Book of Days, ed. by Jane Hatch, 1978, p. 302)

The reason why it is not a rabbit — but instead a hare — which is Easter’s main character, is because according to ancient tradition, the hare was a symbolic representation for the Moon, since they only came out at night to eat. Also, the Egyptian name for hare was “Un” (which means “open”), because they are born with their eyes open, while a rabbit’s eyes are not. And legend is told that the hare never blinks or closes it eyes, and to some pagan cultures, the Moon was the “open-eyed watcher of the skies.” The hare is associated with the goddess Ishtar, and was the symbol of fertility, since they reproduce so quickly.

There is also a Pagan tradition concerning a bird who wanted to be a rabbit, so the goddess Oestre turned the bird into a rabbit, who could still lay eggs. Every Spring, during the festival dedicated to Oestre, the rabbit laid beautiful colored eggs for the goddess. Another tradition comes from Germany, and according to the legend, during a famine, a poor woman dyed some eggs and hid them in a nest, as Easter presents for her children. When the children found the nest, a big rabbit leaped away, the story that the rabbit brought the eggs. –Controlled by the Calendar p 46

Easter Candles: Fire ceremonies had also become a part of Springtime pagan celebrations. In Europe, Easter was celebrated by lighting large bonfires to commemorate the renewal of Spring. A doll, said to symbolize winter, was sometimes burned, which was called “burning the Judas.”  Teutonic tradition called for new fires to be ignited during the vernal equinox.

The Celts had a May Day celebration for their sun god, because they believed that he had been held prisoners through the winter months by evil spirits. So, every year, on May 1st, he escaped, bringing with him sunlight to warm the earth. And to help him escape, giant bonfires were built on the highest hills in an attempt to scare the evil spirits into freeing the Sun. Some Germans, Dutch, and Swedes still burn these Springtime fires. The tradition of burning special Easter candles is directly connected with these fire rituals. — Controlled by the Calendar p  48

EASTER HAM: — Ham at Easter is also popular among Americans and Europeans because the pig was considered a symbol of luck in pre-Christian European culture — (The Encyclopedia of Religion, 1987, p. 558, “Easter”.)

The pig was sacred to the Greek goddess Demeter, the corn goddess, who represented fertility and abundance, and is another counterpart of Astarte. In various depictions of her, she is either shown carrying, or being accompanied by a pig. So, pigs were regularly sacrificed to her, and it was believed, that by eating what they felt, represented and embodied their goddess, they were in fact, eating of her body. The prophet Yeshayahu (changed by Christians to “Isaiah”) warned of this in Yeshayahu 65:3-5. Another source says that the pig represents the wild boar that killed Tammuz, and eating ham was done in remembrance of him.

The tradition of the Easter Ham evolved from an English tradition of eating a gammon of bacon to show their resentment and contempt for the Jewish custom of not eating pork. — Controlled by the Calendar p 48

ASH WEDNESDAY: — The first day of Lent. As an act of penitence, palms saved from the previous year’s “Palm Sunday” are burned to ashes and placed in the shape of a cross on individuals’ foreheads on this day. — (Webster’s Dictionary, Carnival)

LENT: — A forty-day period of penitence and prayer which begins on Ash Wednesday and prepares for the celebration of Easter. Though previously lasting less than a week, during the seventh century it came to represent the forty days Messiah spent in the wilderness. When first initiated by the Catholic Church, there were some individuals that actually fasted much of the time — with the exception of Sunday. Currently, most just forsake an item or two during this period.

The word “lent” comes from the old English “lencten,” which means “Spring.” Created by the Catholic Church around 525, under the guidance of Abbot Dionysus the Little, Lent is the 40-day period from Ash Wednesday until Easter, that is set aside for fasting and seeking repentance. This observance is not found in scripture, so nobody ever celebrated it — ever. Today it usually just means “giving-up” something, usually some bad habit, or even just cutting back, in order to please the Creator. This period of abstinence actually originated in Babylon, as a preliminary to the annual day that honored the death and resurrection of Tammuz. Later, it was observed in Egypt to honor Osiris, the son of Isis, who was the counterpart of Tammuz.

When Nimrod died, and was made the sun god, Semiramis then had an illegitimate son called Tammuz, who she then claimed to be the son of Nimrod. She said that he was the “promised seed of the woman,” (Genesis 3:15) and demanded that both her and Tammuz be worshipped. He became symbolized by the golden calf, while she became known as the “queen of heaven.”  This was the prototype from which all other pagan goddesses came. Her representation can be seen in the Roman Catholic Church’s worship of Mary, who is called the “Mother of the Church,” the “Queen of Heaven and Earth,” and the “Queen of the Universe.”

According to Babylonian tradition, when Tammuz was killed, his mother cried so much, that he came back to life. The manifestation of this was the rebirth and blooming of all vegetation in the Spring, which came to symbolize his resurrection, and why Tammuz is honored in the Spring.  Very similar, is the story in the ancient writings of the Sumerians, in Mesopotamia, which said that Tammuz was married to the goddess Inanna (Ishtar), the “mother goddess.” When he was killed, she was so overcome with grief, that she followed him to the underworld, and in her absence, the earth began dying, crops stopped growing, and animals stopped mating. Ea, the god of water and wisdom, sent a message that Inanna was to be brought back. This messenger sprinkled both Inanna and Tammuz with the water of life, and they were given the power to return to the light of the sun for six months of the year. Then Tammuz would again have to return to the underworld, prompting Inanna to seek him, and again, Ea would have to retrieve them.

Ezekiel 8:12-14 speaks about women weeping for Tammuz, which actually refers to what became the 40-day Lenten period. — Controlled by the Calendar p 46, 47

A forty-day abstinence period was anciently observed in honor of the pagan gods Osiris, Adonis and Tammuz (John Landseer, Sabaean Researches, pp. 111, 112).

“The forty days abstinence of Lent was directly borrowed from the worshippers of the Babylonian goddess. Such a Lent of forty days, in the spring of the year, is still observed by the Yezidis or Pagan Devil-worshippers of Koordistan, who have inherited it from their early masters, the Babylonians. Such a Lent of forty days was held in spring by the Pagan Mexicans…Such a Lent of forty days was observed in Egypt…” — Alexander Hislops, The Two Babylons, p. 104-105

THE EASTER LILY: The Easter Lily, the flowery symbol of Easter, is actually not a Spring flower, but instead a Pagan phallic symbol that represented a sexual reproductive organ.  It reflected on the fertility aspect of the celebration. — Controlled by the Calendar p  49

HOT CROSS BUNS: The history of the hot cross bun goes back to the Babylonian queen of heaven (Ishtar), and a reference to it is made in Jeremiah 7:18, which talks about making “cakes to the queen of heaven.” The Hebrew word for “cakes” is “kavvan” and is more properly translated as “buns.”

At Athens, about 1,500 years before Messiah, these buns (or sacred bread) were used in the worship of the goddess and were called “boun.” Egyptians made buns inscribed with two horns in honor of the moon goddess, and the Greeks changed it to a cross, so it could be easily separated. The Angle-Saxons made buns with a cross on them in honor of their goddess of light. — Controlled by the Calendar p  49

CARNIVAL and MARDI GRAS:  “In the traditional Christian calendar, it is a period of feasting and merrymaking immediately preceding Lent.” Within Europe, traditions and customs are “especially strong in rural areas where magical rites carried over from pre-Christian times mingle comfortably with Christian ritual and precept.”–  (Encyclopedia Americana, Vol. 5).

“The most important day of Carnival is Shrove Tuesday, the day immediately preceding the first day of Lent. In the past on this day, Christians confessed their sins and received forgiveness.” — (A World of Holidays: Carnival, by Catherine Chambers, 1998, p. 6)

“Carnival” means “doing without meat” and as a “Christian,” observance is supposed to remind people of Messiah fasting in the wilderness for 40 days — the time of Lent. However, a February 21, 2001 Houston Chronicle article states the following: “Actually, there was a Pagan festival in ancient Rome, one called carne levare, levamen, meaning ‘take away the flesh.’ Pagans believed the best way to give up ‘flesh’ (aka meat) was by filling up on a lot of, but before the sundial brought on abstinence”

In rural Europe several of the main features that have endured in the Carnival celebrations are: 1) dramatizations symbolizing the death of winter and the resurrection of life in the spring; 2) customs and rites to ensure fertility and abundance in man and nature; 3) rich food, drink and merrymaking, 4) the temporary suspension or inversion of social roles, rank and superiority — (Encyclopedia Americana)

Falsehood #3. Christians teach a doctrine called the “Trinity,” claiming it is scriptural and which consists of the Heavenly Father, the Jewish Messiah and a “Holy Spirit” or “Holy Ghost.”

Response to Falsehood #3: This is a falsehood — and nowhere in scripture — nor in early Believers’ writings — is this doctrine taught nor found.

The concept of the “Trinity” is not only not taught in the scriptures, it also wasn’t taught by 1st century Ekklesia leaders. And not only was it an invention due to the impetus of Constantine, but that many “Trinities” existed in Pagan religions for centuries before this concept was adopted in 325 at the First Council of Nicaea. This was the beginning of the end of separation of Ekklesia and state, where the Catholic Church began persecuting those that would not adhere to their false doctrines, thus heralding in the age of the false Ekklesia, which began to perpetually persecute, torture and murder those who chose to obey the commandments of Messiah, rather than succumb to the commandments of men.

  • Gen. 1:1, 26 – The plural word for “Elohim” is used regarding creation, indicating that Elohim is composed of separate individuals.
  • Col. 1:16-19; Heb. 1:2 – Yahusha was active in creation as a separate individual.
  • Jn. 1:1  – Uses the Greek definite article, to differentiate between two divine individuals in this verse.
  • Jn. 14:23 – Yahusha uses the plural pronoun “we,” which proves He is a separate individual from the Father.

Now let’s take a look at what the Ruach Ha Kodesh of Elohim is:

  • The Hebrew word for ’’Spirit,’’ or ’’Ruach,’’ is breath, wind, breeze, spirit, air, and strength.
  • Acts 2:1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a RUSHING, MIGHTY WIND, AND IT FILLED THE WHOLE HOUSE where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Ruach Ha Kodesh, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Ruach gave them utterance.
  • John 20:22 And when he had said this, HE BREATHED ON THEM and saith unto them, Receive ye the Ruach Ha Kodesh.
  • Ezekiel 37:4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of Adonai. Thus saith Adonai YHWH unto these bones; Behold, I WILL CAUSE BREATH TO ENTER YOU, and ye shall live.
  • Ezekiel 37:9 Then said he unto me, PROPHECY UNTO THE WIND, prophesy, son of man, and SAY TO THE WIND, Thus saith  YHWH; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
  • John 3:8 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Ruach is ruach. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Ruach.
  • In the NIV, Zechariah 6:5 refers to the “four winds of the heavens” riding in chariots, possibly the four winds of heaven going North, East, West and South.
  • The “breath” of Yahuah and the “Spirit” or Ruach of Yahuah are synonymous terms (Job 4:9; Ps. 33:6; Ps. 104:29 and 30; John 3:8; Job 27:3).

There are many ways the scriptures define the Ruach OF Elohim as impersonal:

  • It is referred to as a gift (Acts 10:45; 1 Timothy 4:14).
  • We are told that the Ruach Ha Kodesh can be quenched (1 Thessalonians 5:19).
  • It can be poured out (Acts 2:17, 33).
  • It is shed (Acts 2:33).
  • We are baptized with it (Matthew 3:11).
  • People can drink of it (John 7:37-39).
  • People partake of it (Hebrews 6:4).
  • People are filled with it (Acts 2:4; Ephesians 5:18).
  • It renews us (Titus 3:5).
  • It must be stirred up within us (2 Timothy 1:6).
  • It is called “the Ruach Ha Kodesh of promise.”
  • It is called ”the guarantee of our inheritance.”
  • It is called “the Ruach of wisdom and revelation.” (Ephesians 1:13-14, 17).
  • It is a wind (Acts 2:2).
  • It is fire (verse 3).
  • It is water (John 4:14; 7:37-39).
  • It is oil (Psalm 45:7; also Acts 10:38; Matthew 25:1-10).
  • It is a dove (Matthew 3:16).
  • It is a down payment on eternal life (2 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5; Ephesians 1:13-14, KJV).
  • The “Ruach of Yahuah” is synonymous with the “hand” and “the finger” of Elohim (Ezek. 3:14; Job 26:13; Ps. 8:3; Luke 11:20).

Here are some interesting things to consider:

  • If Elohim were a Trinity, surely Paul would have taught this concept. Yet we find no such teaching in His writings.
  • Paul’s standard greeting in his letter to the churches and to individuals was, “Grace to you and peace from Yahuah our Father and Yahusha Messiah.” The same is true of Peter in the salutations of both his epistles.
  • In all of Paul’s writings, only in 2 Corinthians 13:14 is the Ruach Ha Kodesh mentioned along with the Father and Messiah, and there only in connection with the “fellowship of the Ruach Ha Kodesh” in which believers share. Paul describes Elohim’s Ruach as the unifying agent that brings us together in godly, righteous fellowship with one another and with the Father and Son.
  • Notice that our fellowship is of the Ruach Ha Kodesh, not with the Ruach Ha Kodesh. John 1:3 tells us, “Truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Yahusha Messiah.”
  • Paul states that “there is one Yahuah, the Father…and One Yahusha Messiah” (1 Corinthians 8:6), making no mention of the Ruach Ha Kodesh as an El person.
  • Yahusha never spoke of the Ruach Ha Kodesh as a divine third person, but instead, in numerous passages He spoke only of the relationship between Yahuah the Father and Himself (Matthew 26:39; Mark 13:32; 15:34; John 5:18, 22; etc.).
  • Yahusha doesn’t mention the Ruach Ha Kodesh as a person in His teachings, instead are His many statements about Himself and the Father.
  • In visions of Yahuah’s throne the Father and Messiah are seen, but the Ruach Ha Kodesh is never seen (Acts 7:55-56; Daniel 7:9-14; Revelation 4-5; 7:10).
  • The final and last book of the scriptures to be written does not mention the Ruach Ha Kodesh as an El person, but describes “a new heaven and new earth” (Revelation 21:1) wherein “the tabernacle of Yahuah is with men, and He will dwell with them”

Here are some other things to consider about the Ruach Ha Kodesh OF Elohim:

  • The Hebrew usage of “the Ruach of Elohim” never refers to a person separate from, but a part of, Yahuah Almighty. Neither does the phrase, “the Ruachs of Elohim” occur, which would refer to separate Ru’chani entities within a multi-personal Elohim.
  • The scriptures never tell us to pray to, lift up, praise, honor, sing to, speak to, esteem or otherwise venerate as deity the Ruach of Elohim.
  • Elohim is referred to as a Ruach (John 4:24).
  • While much is said by Messiah concerning His love for His Father, no such reference is made to the Ruach.
  • While scriptures mention the love the Father and Son has for Believers, no mention is made of the love of the Ruach for them.
  • It should be noted that pneuma hagion often refers to the gift of Elohim, the El nature born inside us. This El nature is a “thing,” not a person. Thus it should be referred to with pronouns such as “it,” “that,” or “which,” and not“who,” or “whom.”

More information on the falsehood of the “Trinity” can be found HERE.

Falsehood #4. Christians teach that “Jesus is the Son of God,” claiming this statement is scriptural and the truth.

Response to those who claim #4 is true. The name “Jesus” was NEVER given to the Jewish Messiah, as it means “the horse” or “a horse” in Hebrew, which is the language of Heaven — and The Anointed One is NOT a horse.

If one looks at the picture of the 1599 Geneva scriptures below, you will see the name “Iesvs.” This is Latin and sounds like “hey-soos.”

But the Latin is taken from the Greek name Iesous, which can be pronounced “ee-ay-soos.” or Yay-soos.” And where did they get the Greek name from? Well, the Latin name “Iesvs” came from the GREEK name “Iesous,” which came from the corrupted Hebrew name “Yeshua,” which came from the corrupted name of “Yehowshuwah,” which came from what I believe is the real Transliteration of the Name of the Messiah, which is “Yahusha.”

Let’s start off with the name of the Messiah first to get a foundational understanding of what His Name should be.

“I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” John 5:43

“Kodesh Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.” John 17:11,12

“I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.” John 17:6

But what is the Name of the Father? Is it “God” or “LORD” or “Jehovah?” NO! God is a title and can mean any god, while LORD means “BA’AL” in Hebrew, and Jehovah is not even Hebrew or Greek, and therefore cannot be a correct transliteration of the Father’s Name.

You see,  the practice of substituting the real Name of the Father, which is YHWH (Tetragrammaton [from Greek τετραγράμματον, meaning “{a word} having four letters” [Hebrew: יהוה‎], for the term ”LORD” was begun by the Jews hundreds of years before Messiah. The Jews did not want to pronounce or mispronounce the name of YHWH out of reverence, and also because they did not want to violate the commandment that says, “You shall not take the name of Yahuah your Elohim in vain, for Yahuah will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.”

Instead of using YHWH, the scribes simply put the words “LORD” or “LORD God” to hide the Father’s Name. The title of YHWH is “Elohim,” and this word was replaced by the word “God” over 6,000 times.

There is only ONE word for “horse” in Hebrew, which in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance is Hebrew word #5483 “soos.” It is used a total of 34 times in the Old Testament. ”Hey” in Hebrew means “the,” “Soos” in Hebrew means “horse,” so Hey-soos literally means: “THE HORSE!”

Now Messiah said He came in His Father’s Name which is YHWH, but how do we pronounce this Name? Many think it to be “Yahweh,” but this is incorrect, although it DOES contain the abbreviate Name of the Father. The following three verses give the abbreviated Name of YHWH.

“I said, ‘I won’t see Yah, Yah in the land of the living. I will see man no more with the inhabitants of the world.’” Isaiah 38:11 World English

“But we will bless Yah, from this time forth and forevermore. Praise Yah!” Psalms 115:8 World English

“Let everything that has breath praise Yah! Praise Yah!” Psalms 150:6 World English

And the YHWH has kept His abbreviated Name throughout the thousands of years in the word halelluYAH! The first part of this word is hallel in Hebrew, and it just doesn’t mean to “praise,” but means a JOYOUS praise in song, to BOAST in YHWH. The second part of the word is Yah (Jah in some renderings), and is the first two letter of YHWH. HalelluYah is PRONOUNCED the same in 2,400 languages and means to bring a joyous praise to Yah and is found 24 times in the Hebrew scriptures.

Now if you look up the name “Jesus” in the Strong’s lexicon it has “Iesous”:

  • “2424 Iesous ee-ay-sooce’ of Hebrew origin (3091)”

Here are the KJB concordance numbers: “These428 are the names8034 of the men376 which834 Moses4872 sent7971 to spy out8446 (853) the land.776 And Moses4872 called7121 Oshea1954 the son1121 of Nun5126 Joshua.3091

It traces the name of Messiah to Hebrew word #3091 in the Strong’s lexicon, which is the same name as “Joshua, Son of Nun.” It is important here to note that a Greek transliteration of the Hebrew scriptures that was completed many years before Messiah came to earth rendered the Hebrew name “Yahushua” as IhsouV (Iesous). There is also evidence that although the name of the Messiah was written in Greek as IhsouV, it may have actually been pronounced the way a Hebrew speaking person would pronounce it.

In the Strong’s concordance and other Hebrew Lexicons, the pronunciation listed for the Messiah’s name is typically “Yehoshua.” But the reason for the “Yehoshua” pronunciation is due to the Hebrew vowel pointing added by the Masorite scribes, which are the little dots and dashes under and above certain Hebrew letters. Hebrew was written with mostly all consonants and it was up to the reader to supply the vowels in each word based on the context of the word. Since they didn’t want people to say the Heavenly Father’s name, they pointed the Heavenly Father’s name to produce the sound “Yehovah.”

YHWH are the Hebrew letters Yod, Hay, Uau (waw) and Hay. As we have already learned, the first two letter are pronounced “Yah,” as in halelluYah! There is no letter “W” in the Hebrew, and the letter “double-U” came into existence in only parts of western Europe during the 13th century. The Hebrew letter commonly seen as “waw” is more accurately expressed as a “UAU,” since it conveys the sound of “U,” and sometimes “O.” When the letter “hay” is followed by a “uau,” the sound is to be “OO,” as we hear in the word ”halleluYah.” That “u” sound you hear in “halleluYah” is the letter “uau.” The tribe of Judah is actually “YAHUDAH” and is spelled YOD-HAY-UAU-DALETH-HAY.

Notice the four letters in this five-lettered word. It’s as simple as saying “YAHUDAH” without the sound of the letter “D”: YAHUAH. So, the Name of the Father is “Yahuah.”

The Name of the Son is the same as that of Joshua son of Nun(#3091), which is YOD-HAY-UAU-SHIN-AYIN, and is transliterated as Yahusha, and YOD-HAY-UAU-SHIN-UAU-AYIN, and is transliterated as Yahushua. Yahusha is 216 times in scripture, while Yahushua is found 2 times in scripture. In Deuteronomy, Yahusha is used 7 times, while Yahushua is used once. In Judges, Yahusha is used 5 times, while Yahushua is used once.

Yah means “I Am,” while SHUA and SHA both contain the Hebrew root, yaSHA, meaning deliverance. So Yahusha means, “I Am your Deliverer!” Yahusha did in FACT come in His Father’s Name!

“But while he thought on these things, behold, the Messenger of Yahuah appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Yoseph, you son of David, fear not to take unto you Miryam (Mary) your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the (Ruach Ha Kodesh=’Holy Spirit’ OF Yahuah). And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call His Name Yahusha: for He shall deliver His people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of Yahuah by the prophet, saying,

‘Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel’, which being interpreted is, (Eloah) with us. Then Yoseph being raised from sleep did as the Messenger of Yahuah) had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Yahusha.”

It is important to note that the form “YESHUA” has been adapted to form the acronym “YESHU,” a mutilation of Yahusha’s Name used by unbelieving Yahudim during the late 1st and 2nd century CE. The letters in “YESHU” stood for the sentence, “may his name be blotted out“ (from the scroll of life).  This “Yeshu” acronym is the real root of the form “JESUS”, after going through Greek, then Latin.

Lie #5. Christians teach that the very first Believers in the Jewish Messiah were called “Christians,” and preach and teach that this assertion is scriptural.

Response to Lie #5: The very first Believers in the Jewish Messiah were NOT called Christians, the scriptures being corrupted by Christians.

The original Hebrew for “Nazarene” is based on the root “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)  referred to the whole district. This root word used points to the fact that the town was situated on high ground,  providing a panoramic view of the surroundings.

In fact, the “brow of the hill” which the townfolk tried to throw the Messiah over gave the name to the town itself. Natsareth (natsar, the root) hence means “watchtower,” and Natsarenes are by extension “watchmen.”

The original followers of the Jewish Messiah were known as “Natsarim” (the plural of Natsari), because you’ll see “sect of the Nazarenes” written in your translations at Acts 24:5.

Acts 24:5 For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes.

Acts 11:25-26: Then Barnaḇah went to Tarsos to seek Sha’ul, and having found him, he brought him to Antioch. And it came to be that for an entire year they came together in the assembly and taught large numbers. And the taught ones were called ‘Natsarim’ first in Antioch.

Act 24:5-6: “For having found this man a plague, who stirs up dissension among all the Yahuḏim throughout the world and a ringleader of the sect of the Natsarim, who also tried to profane the Set- Apart Place and whom we seized and wished to judge him according to our law”

1 Peter 4:16: But if one suffers being Natsarim, let him not be ashamed, but let him esteem Elohim in this matter.

Did you notice that Paul was considered to be the ringleader of a sect called the Nazarenes (Natsarim)?

The Natsarim were known to follow The Way and were easily identified due to their use of the Name. The Name of the Heavenly Elohim was banned and forbidden to be used by those practicing Judaism. But the Natsarim used His Name regularly — as did Yahusha. They also did not teach the traditions of Judaism, which was referred to as the traditions of men.

Revelation 12:17: And the dragon was enraged with the woman and he went to fight with the remnant of her seed, those guarding the commands of Elohim and possessing the witness of Yahusha ha Mashiach (The Natsarim).

Jerome  (Sophronius Eusebius Hieronymus) acknowledged the existence of the Natsarim, and had contact with one of them who validated the meaning of “He shall be called a Natsari” (from Mt. 2:23). The Natsari who spoke with Sophronius/Jerome was quoting from a text he referred to as the apocryphon of YirmeYahu (Jeremiah):

The interesting thing about the quote from Jerome  is that it attests that Natsarim actually existed during the 4th century:

“Recently I read in a certain Hebrew book
that a Hebrew from the Natsarim sect brought to me,
the apocryphon of YirmeYahu, in which I found this text
written word for word.”
(Jerome; Commentary on Matthew 2:23)

It seems that the “Hebrew” from the sect of the Natsarim is most likely pointing out YirmeYahu 31:5.

The Catechetical School of Alexandria, Egypt and the “church fathers” who were trained and taught there, developed what ultimately became “Christianity,” and later Roman “Universalism,” Catholicism.  What these early “church fathers” of Alexandria wrote about a certain “sect,” the Natsarim, may be of interest to those who actually want to trace back to their roots of their beliefs.

Many of these early “Christians” were former sun-worshippers that adopted a belief in the Mashiach (Messiah) of Yisra’el, Yahusha. They worked predominantly with Greek texts, yet from reading their Greek letters, we can quickly discern that they despised the “Natsarim.” One of these church fathers’ indicated that these Natsarim possessed the writings of MattithYahu (Matthew), and stated that they were in Hebrew letters, as they had been originally written.  These facts clearly contradict what most people today have been led to believe about the original followers of Yahusha. And due to the “church fathers,” the Hebrew/Yisra’elite roots of the faith were suppressed, and only the Greek roots were developed, written about and mostly followed.

Romans 11:16-22: ” Now if the first-fruit is set-apart, the lump is also. And if the root is set-apart, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off and you, being a WILD OLIVE TREE, have been GRAFTED IN among them and came to share the root and fatness of the olive tree, do NOT boast against the branches. And if you boast, remember: you do NOT bear the root, but the root bears you! You shall say then, “The branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” Good! By unbelief they were broken off and you stand by belief. Do NOT be arrogant, but FEAR. For if Elohim did NOT spare the natural branches, He might NOT spare you either. See then the kindness and the SHARPNESS of Elohim: on those who fell sharpness, but toward you kindness, IF you continue in His kindness, otherwise you also shall be cut off.”

Please understand that it seems that the two most uniform traits among all the “Church Fathers” was their condemnation of the Natsarim, and their rabid anti-Semitism.

Origen of Alexandria taught at the Catechetical School of Alexandria and succeed Clement as Head of the School.

Origen lived from 185 to 254 CE and was self-castrated and a vegetarian, like Clement.

Tertullian and Irenaeus were contemporaries of Orign, and were Classically Educated  in Paganism, and error was adopted.

Though modern seminaries (seed-plots) promote the teachings of the “church fathers,” Greek and Egyptian men sought to eliminate the former Natsarim, and the Natsarim were spoken against by those in authority back in the days of Shaul (Paul):

“And we think it right to hear from you what you think, for indeed, concerning this sect, we know that it is spoken against everywhere.”  (ACT 28:22).

This sect, the NATSARIM, was suppressed by the early church fathers, and by the developing hierarchy at the earliest formal school of Christianity,

THE CATECHETICAL SCHOOL OF ALEXANDRIA (FOUNDED CIRCA 190 CE)

The term by which the early followers of Yahusha of Natsarith were called is found at Acts 24:5, misspelled “Nazarenes.”

IRENAEUS was a mid-2nd century “church father” who held that the bishops provided the only safe-guard against false interpretation of Scripture, which laid the groundwork toward papal primacy. Also, in his battle against Gnosticism, and in the interest of unity, he maintained that Doctrinal Authority had to be solely established by Episcopal “Councils.” “Episcopal” means Governed by Bishops, and this laid a foundation for later Nicolaitanes and a hierarchical chain of command, culminating in the fascism known as the Roman Catholic Church. And Catholic means “universal” in Latin, so Irenaeus’ vision for Unity of Doctrine did actually become a reality.

And for centuries after the resurrection of Yahusha, false teachers arose to draw away disciples after themselves, just as Shaul predicted would occur in Acts chapter 20.

Today, Christians look back and call these men the “church fathers.” Augustine, Tertullian, Jerome, Epiphanius, and a dozen others guided the doctrines, and a great “falling-away” occurred through these “elders” (bishops, overseers). An example:

Yahuah tells us not to learn the ways of the Heathen, nor serve Him in their way. Dt. 12:30-32

The fourth century “Church Father”, Epiphanius, gave a detailed description of the Natsarim,  (SPEAKING AS A DRAGON):

“We shall now especially consider heretics who…call themselves Nazarenes; they are mainly Jews and nothing else. They make use not only of the New Testament, but they also use in a way the Old Testament of the Jews; for they do not forbid the books of the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings…so that they are approved of by the Jews, from whom the Nazarenes do not differ in anything, and they profess all the dogmas pertaining to the prescriptions of the Law and to the customs of the Jews, except they believe in Messiah. They preach that there is but one God, and His Son Yeshua the Messiah. But they are very learned in the Hebrew language; for they, like the Jews, read the whole Law, then the Prophets…They differ from the Jews because they believe in Messiah, and from the Christians in that they are to this day bound to the Jewish rites, such as circumcision, the Sabbath, and other ceremonies. They have the Good news according to Matthew in its entirety in Hebrew. For it is clear that they still preserve this, in the Hebrew alphabet, as it was originally written.”

Epiphanius is informing us that the Nazarenes were different from what he called the “Christians” and “Jews,” and since he lived three hundred years after Yahusha Messiah arrived, the “Nazarenes” and the “Christians” could ONLY be TWO SEPARATE GROUPS at that time!

And there is evidence that the Natsarim Sect continued to exist until at least the 13th century. The Catholic writings of Bonacursus entitled Against the Heretics refers to “Nazarenes”, who were also called ‘Pasagini’. Bonacursus says, (SPEAKING AS A DRAGON):

“Let those who are not yet acquainted with them, please note how perverse their belief and doctrine are. First, they teach that we should obey the Law of Moses according to the letter – the Sabbath, and circumcision, and the legal precepts still being in force. Furthermore, to increase their error, they condemn and reject all the Church Fathers, and the whole Roman Church.”

In his book “Judeo-Christianity,” Professor Simon disagreed with what Mr. Epiphanius had to say regarding the “Nazarenes. In an effort to CORRECT HISTORY, the Catholic Professor wrote:

“They (meaning the Nazarenes) are characterized essentially by their tenacious attachment to Jewish observances. If they became heretics in the eyes of the Mother Church, it is simply because they remained fixed on outmoded positions.”

[However...] “They well represent (although Epiphanius is energetically refusing to admit it) the very direct descendants of that primitive community, of which our author knows that is was designated by the Jews, by the same name, of Nazarenes.” [French Catholic Professor and First Century Assembly expert Marcel Simon, Judeo-christianisme, pp 47-48]

Himself a practicing Roman Catholic, Marcel Simon professed that is was indeed NOT the Catholic Christians, but rather the “Nazarenes” who were the “very DIRECT DESCENDANTS of that primitive community,” called the “Nazarenes.”

And by this he means that the “Nazarenes” — and NOT the Catholics — are the DIRECT, spiritual DESCENDANTS of the Apostles of the New Covenant!!!

And the very first Believers in Yahusha were called the “Way” (comes from ( John 14:6/ Acts 9:2, 19: 9, 23, 22:4 and 24:22).

“Christianity,” in its modern form, it seems was likely started by Simon Magnus (Simon the Magician), who is mentioned in Acts Chapter 8, and who attempted to purchase the power of Elohim, and is actually buried under the altar of “St. Peter’s Cathedral” in Rome. ”Christianity” was later made the Official State Religion of Rome by Constantine. In fact, the Vatican is the Great Whore spoken of in scripture.

”Christianity” was certainly not started by “Saint Peter”, Paul, or Yahusha Messiah.

And did you know that there were “Christians” before the Natsarim were started by Yahusha?

Followers of Serapis (a Pagan Diety) in 300 B.C. were known as “Kristianos.”  The Greek term Chrestoi means “good men,” which was applied to the followers of Sarapis for three centuries before Yahusha Messiah arrived. (From Serapis dictionary entry: There those who worship Serapis are, in fact, Christians, and those who call themselves bishops of Christ are, in fact, devotees of Serapis.)  It is a fact of language that the term “Christian” simply means cretin, idiot, stupid, mentally defective.

“For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Yahudim throughout the world and a ringleader of the sect (G139, hairesis) of the Nazarenes (G3480) . . .” The Greek word hairesis above gives us our word “heresy”  translated “sect”. So we know the “sect” being spoken of was not the Christians, because Christians developed later. The word christianos was used twice in the Greek text as a device of scorn, since in the ancient world it conveyed a much different sense than it does today. The use of the word christianos did not “name” the sect, but it was a derisive, scornful label that meant they were like gullible, dumb beasts, or “cretins”.

The word “christianos” (Latin, Christianus) was a term of scorn, traced back through a related word which history never “revised”:

cre·tin   (krēt’n) n.

1.  A person afflicted with cretinism.

Slang:  An idiot.

[French crétin, from French dialectal, deformed and mentally retarded person found in certain Alpine valleys, from Vulgar Latin *christiānus, Christian, human being, poor fellow, from Latin Chrīstiānus, Christian; see Christian.] Source:  The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition

The word “watchmen” is the Hebrew word NATSARIM, and means guardians, protectors, preservers, and also means “branches”, as in “descendants.” Immediately, we see the connection with Yahusha’s words about Him being the Root, and His students the “branches,” the off-spring of His teachings. The name by which we are called has no Greek roots; the Hebrew roots of our name are profound.

And the 1945 Encyclopedia Americana has this to say under to topic “GOD”:

“GOD (god); Common Teutonic word for personal object of religious worship, formerly applicable to super-human beings of heathen myth; on conversion of Teutonic races to Christianity, term was applied to Supreme Being.”

So, how does one become a Natsari?

“And Yahusha came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on Earth. Therefore, go and make taught ones of all the nations, immersing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Set-apart Spirit, teaching them to guard all that I have commanded you. And see, I am with you always, until the end of the age.’”

And don’t forget this scripture…

“And in her was found the blood of prophets and set-apart ones, and of all who were slain on the Earth.”  Rev 18:24

When are are saved, the Covenant is a marriage between Yahuah and Yisra’el, His bride. And Natsarim Yisra’el (Nazarene Israel) represents the First-Fruits of a great up-coming Harvest of Souls for the Kingdom of Heaven. Yisra’el is the only “denomination,” and the Natsarim are an elect group within Yisra’el, as they are called by Yahusha as workers in His up-coming harvest of mankind. We are Gentiles and Hebrews. We are all grafted into Yisra’el.

Natsarim, or followers of Yahusha, are those who “obey Yahuah’s Commandments and hold to the testimony of Yahusha” (Rev 12:17).

Natsarim are watchmen (Natsarim, Acts 24:5, Jer. 31:6 meaning also branches), and consider all Believers to be on the path to redemption through repentance, immersion in the Name of Yahusha, and obedience to the Covenant of Yahusha, through the Set-Apart-Spirit of Elohim.

And here is the Name of the Creator that was restored to the text in its original ancient Hebrew form as He wrote it: 

Falsehood #5. Christians assert that the U.S.-led War on Drugs is scriptural and GOOD.

Response to Falsehood #5: This is a falsehood, with no scripture pointing out that the government is to be used as an instrument against those who self-inflict wounds. In FACT, the War on Drugs has nothing whatsoever to do with Elohim, but rather is from the Destroyer below. For more information on why the War on Drugs is not good and is against scripture, please click HERE and HERE.

Falsehood #6. Christians assert that “tithing” is scriptural for New Covenant Believers.

Response to Falsehood #6: This is a falsehood, with no scripture directing New Covenant Believers to give ten percent of anything to anyone or any Assembly. For more information on why “tithing” is NOT directed at New Covenant Believers of Yahusha, click HERE and HERE and HERE.

Falsehood #7. Christians claim that the Creator never allowed men to marry more than one wife and is unscriptural (polygyny, as opposed to bigamy or polygamy, which also allows women to marry more than one man, which is also called “polyandry), with some claiming that the only exceptions were Jewish Patriarchs.

Response to Falsehood #7: This is a falsehood, with scripture allowing ANY man to marry more than one wife. Scripture never allows for polygamy, but Elohim made allowances for multiple wives, also the overflow of females taking into account that they would be taken care of, too. For more information on why bigamy is scriptural and has helped women, click HERE and HERE and HERE.

Falsehood #8. Christians claim and teach as scriptural that once a person has been “saved,” they need not fear the Creator any longer, they just have to “revere” the Creator.

Response to Falsehood#8: This is a falsehood, since scripture even points out that blasphemy against the Set-Apart Spirit of Elohim will NEVER be forgiven, not in this age, nor the age to come. Plus, the scripture is replete with COMMANDS to “FEAR” Elohim and even making Elohim your “DREAD.” For more information on the COMMANDMENT to “FEAR” Elohim, click HERE

  1. Thank you for such in-depth research, yes these things need to be exposed, as the clergy are just sinking deeper into the mire of apostasy leading the people on a road to destruction.

  2. This makes slot of sense, am a minister of the Gospel and the Spirit has been moving me into speaking in this direction. I totally agree only that I didn’t have a clear source of information. But often find myself saying am not a christian am a believer. Christianity is a religion like any other and has caused more harm than others. In the world today christians are killing people in wars and secret technological ways in the name of medicine. We have missed the power of God Almighty because some fools corrupted relevant information and knowledge. I just don’t know what to do, many people are on their way to destruction.

    • Keep following the truth, for it eventually shall set people free — hopefully, including ourselves. It is a lonely path that ALL MUST take — and ALWAYS HAS BEEN (FEW SHALL BE SAVED!) — on their OWN, putting the love of truth ahead of family, friends, work, self, country and all things of this world…
