Christmas: The Truth Your Pastor Refuses to Tell You Concerning the Pagan (Nimrodic) Roots of Christmas(s)

Please ask your pastor about the Pagan (Nimrodic) roots of Christmas. Ask your (a) Christian pastor why he celebrates a holiday that honors the Babylonian trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis? Please ask your favorite Christian leader or organization why they celebrate a known Pagan holiday from the Babylonian trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis that is now called ‘Christmas.’ Thank you, you may be very glad you did. :)

I Call A Blessing Upon on the Earth, To Those and Their Households Who Esteem Elohim (YHWH [Eloah]/Yahush[u]a Messiah [Mashiach])

I, Dennis Brenden Rice, Call A Blessing Upon on the Earth, To Those and Their Households Who Esteem Elohim (Eloah [YHWH]/Yahush[u]a) so that whosoever gives or whosoever does not give tender mercies for humans for the esteem of Elohim, may they also be blessed with the exact same tender mercies from Elohim that they gave to humans for the esteem of Elohim, I pray, in the Name of YAHUAH’s Son, Yahusha/Yahushua (my) Messiah (Ha-Mashiach), Amein (pronounced like: ‘awe main’). HalleluYah!

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.)

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).

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]

Yahusha Ha'Mashiach

Yahusha

Who Are The “Natsarim”; The “Christians”; The “Catholics”; The “Protestants”; The “Sabbatarians”?

Who were the original followers of the Jewish Messiah? Was Christianity the original “sect” spoken of in scripture concerning the followers of Messiah? Who were the original Protestants? Were most of the early Christian “Church Fathers” antisemitic? Were the scripture translations afterwards tainted by Gentile Christians who sought to usher in Pagan “holidays” and shun Jewish festivals, persecuting Jews and all who didn’t follow their new teachings? Who are “Sabbatarians”? These questions and more will be answered below so that the Truth can finally be told — after so many years of continual falsehoods being told.

I am going to start out by giving you scripture that will enlighten us all to what the name of the people who were the first followers of the Jewish Messiah, or “Mashiach” or “The Anointed One” were called.

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 Barnabah 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.”

And did you notice that Paul was considered to be the ringleader of a sect called the Nazarenes (Natsarim)? I will be bringing up Paul’s name later as I discuss the Sabbatarians, who mostly detest — and even disavow — Paul’s testimony in scripture.

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, which provided a panoramic view of the surroundings.

In fact, the “brow of the hill” which the townsfolk 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), as you saw above the “sect of the Nazarenes” written in your translations at Acts 24:5.

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 Messiah. 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-paleo Messiah (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 (Jeremiah) 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 Yisrael, 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.

Through 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).

Acts 11:28 “…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.”

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. 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 (Paul) predicted would occur in Acts chapter 20.

Acts 20:27 “For I know this, that after MY DEPARTURE (emphasis is mine) savage wolves shall come in among you, NOT SPARING THE FLOCK. Also from among yourselves men shall arise, speaking DISTORTED TEACHINGS, to draw away the taught ones after them selves.”

And 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 sovereign) 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 most Believers are called has no Greek roots; the Hebrew roots of our name are profound.

And what about the term “God”? 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.”

We are to be the Hebrew word “qadosh,” meaning we are to be set-apart, not “holy.” And Brown, Driver and Briggs (BDB) list the meaning of the word as separation” or withdrawal.” 

And how do we become saved? Yahusha tells us below:

“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 we are spoken of here:

“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 we become saved, we enter a Covenant, which is a marriage between YHWH and Yisra’el, His bride. 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 to become Natsarim (Believers in The Way of Yahusha ‘Mashiach'; Taught Ones of The Way of Yahusha ‘Messiah'; Brethren of The Way of Yahusha ‘The Anointed One’ or ‘Redeemer’ or ‘Savoir — but NOT ‘Christ’). 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. We are to believe in the Name of Yahusha Messiah and become immersed under water in His Name to receive remission of sin and receive the Set-Apart Spirit of Elohim. Then we are to live as a new creature in Yahusha Messiah to be set-apart from sin and to to good unto all men – and even our enemies as we can — and especially to love the Brethren in Messiah Yahusha, as we try to love YHWH with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength until out last breath.

And here is the Name of the Creator that was restored to the text in one of its original ancient Hebrew forms: 

Now let’s look at the “Reformation” or the beginning of the people who now call themselves “Protestants.”

Martin Luther is credited by Christians as the leader of the Reformation Movement, so let’s only look at only a SMALL (for lack of space) portion of his antisemitism writings.

Martin Luther – 1543: On The Jews and Their Lies

“What then shall we Christians do with this damned, rejected race of Jews? Since they live among us and we know about their lying and blasphemy and cursing, we can not tolerate them if we do not wish to share in their lies, curses, and blasphemy. In this way we cannot quench the inextinguishable fire of divine rage nor convert the Jews. We must prayerfully and reverentially practice a merciful severity. Perhaps we may save a few from the fire and flames [of hell]. We must not seek vengeance. They are surely being punished a thousand times more than we might wish them. Let me give you my honest advice.

“First, their synagogues should be set on fire, and whatever does not burn up should be covered or spread over with dirt so that no one may ever be able to see a cinder or stone of it. And this ought to be done for the honor of God and of Christianity in order that God may see that we are Christians, and that we have not wittingly tolerated or approved of such public lying, cursing, and blaspheming of His Son and His Christians.

“Secondly, their homes should likewise be broken down and destroyed. For they perpetrate the same things there that they do in their synagogues. For this reason they ought to be put under one roof or in a stable, like gypsies, in order that they may realize that they are not masters in our land, as they boast, but miserable captives, as they complain of incessantly before God with bitter wailing.

“Thirdly, they should be deprived of their prayer-books and Talmuds in which such idolatry, lies, cursing, and blasphemy are taught.

“Fourthly, their rabbis must be forbidden under threat of death to teach any more…

“Fifthly, passport and traveling privileges should be absolutely forbidden to the Jews. For they have no business in the rural districts since they are not nobles, nor officials, nor merchants, nor the like. Let them stay at home…If you princes and nobles do not close the road legally to such exploiters, then some troop ought to ride against them, for they will learn from this pamphlet what the Jews are and how to handle them and that they ought not to be protected. You ought not, you cannot protect them, unless in the eyes of God you want to share all their abomination…

“To sum up, dear princes and nobles who have Jews in your domains, if this advice of mine does not suit you, then find a better one so that you and we may all be free of this insufferable devilish burden – the Jews…”

John Calvin, who believed in “predestination,” was also antisemitic. And “predestination” means that if one is going to enter Hell or Heaven, they have already been preordained, and nothing can be done about it.

John Calvin: A Response To Questions and Objections of a Certain Jew

“Their [the Jews] rotten and unbending stiffneckedness deserves that they be oppressed unendingly and without measure or end and that they die in their misery without the pity of anyone.”

Excerpt from “Ad Quaelstiones et Objecta Juaei Cuiusdam Responsio,” by John Calvin; The Jew in Christian Theology, Gerhard Falk, McFarland and Company, Inc., Jefferson, NC and London, 1931.

Here are some more antisemitic quotes from early “church fathers”:

Peter the Venerable — known as “the meekest of men, a model of Christian charity”:

“Yes, you Jews. I say, do I address you; you, who till this very day, deny the Son of God. How long, poor wretches, will ye not believe the truth? Truly I doubt whether a Jew can be really human… I lead out from its den a monstrous animal, and show it as a laughing stock in the amphitheater of the world, in the sight of all the people. I bring thee forward, thou Jew, thou brute beast, in the sight of all men.”

From “The Roots of Christian Anti-Semitism” by Malcolm Hay

Augustine (c. 354-430 A.D.), Confessions, 12.14

“How hateful to me are the enemies of your Scripture! How I wish that you would slay them (the Jews) with your two-edged sword, so that there should be none to oppose your word! Gladly would I have them die to themselves and live to you!”

John Chrysostom (344-407 A.D.) — One of the “greatest” of church fathers;  A missionary preacher famous for his sermons and addresses, also known as “The Golden Mouthed.” 

“The synagogue is worse than a brothel…it is the den of scoundrels and the repair of wild beasts…the temple of demons devoted to idolatrous cults…the refuge of brigands and dabauchees, and the cavern of devils. It is a criminal assembly of Jews…a place of meeting for the assassins of Christ… a house worse than a drinking shop…a den of thieves, a house of ill fame, a dwelling of iniquity, the refuge of devils, a gulf and a abyss of perdition.”…”I would say the same things about their souls… As for me, I hate the synagogue…I hate the Jews for the same reason.”

From “The Roots of Christian Anti-Semitism” by Malcolm Hay

Origen of Alexandria (185-254 A.D.) — A ecclesiastical writer and teacher who contributed to the early formation of “Christian” doctrines.

“We may thus assert in utter confidence that the Jews will not return to their earlier situation, for they have committed the most abominable of crimes, in forming this conspiracy against the Savior of the human race…hence the city where Jesus suffered was necessarily destroyed, the Jewish nation was driven from its country, and another people was called by God to the blessed election.”

Now let’s look at the Catholic Church, or better known as the “Vatican,” and its history of antisemitism, along with its persecutions and “Crusades” or “Inquisitions.”

The Inquisitions (Roman, Medieval, and Spanish) were perpetrated upon the Peoples of Europe, with an estimated 3 million murdered and about 300,000 burned at the stake in Spain alone.

A Catholic historian commenting on the Spanish Inquisition wrote:

“When Napoleon conquered Spain in 1808, a Polish officer in his army, Colonel Lemanouski, reported that the Dominicans [in charge of the Inquisition] blockaded themselves in their monastery…the inquisitors denied the existence of any torture chambers. The soldiers searched the monastery and discovered them under the floors. The chambers were full of prisoners, all naked, many insane. The French troops, used to cruelty and blood, could not stomach the sight. They emptied the torture-chambers, laid gunpowder to the monastery and blew the place up.”

And Church historian Bishop William Shaw Kerr writes:

“The most ghastly abomination of all was the system of torture. The accounts of its cold-blooded operations make one shudder at the capacity of human beings for cruelty. And it was decreed and regulated by the popes who claim to represent Christ on earth…

“Careful notes were taken not only of all that was confessed by the victim, but of his shrieks, cries, lamentations, broken interjections and appeals for mercy. The most moving things in the literature of the Inquisition are not the accounts of their sufferings left by the victims but the sober memoranda kept by the officers of the tribunals…there is no intention to shock us.”

Also, Emelio Martinez writes in a book published in 1909: “To these three million victims [documented by Llorente] should be added the thousands upon thousands of Jews and Moors deported from their homeland…In just one year, 1481, and just in Seville, the Holy Office [of the Inquisition] burned 2000 persons; the bones and effigies of another 2000…and another 16,000 were condemned to varying sentences.”

Even Peter de Rosa acknowledges that the RCC “was responsible for persecuting Jews, for the Inquisition, for slaughtering heretics by the thousand, for reintroducing torture into Europe as part of the judicial process.”

In 1096, Pope Urban II was the impetus of the first crusade to retake Jerusalem from the Muslims, with one of the Crudaders’ first acts upon taking Jerusalem “for Holy Mother Church” was to put the Jews into a synagogue and set it on fire.

Here is a book entitled: “The Popes Against Jews: The Vatican’s Role in the Rise of Modern Anti-semitism

Here is a list of compiled quotes from Popes of the Roman Catholic Church wherein they taught:

That the Jews are cursed for murdering Jesus

That the Jews are cursed to be traitors like Judas

That the Jews are cursed to be unscrupulous money grubbers, like Judas

That the Jews are cursed to be outcasts like Cain, segregated from the rest of the society within which they live

That the Jews are cursed to be distinguished from everyone else by an identifying mark, like Cain

That the Jews are cursed to be outcasts, periodically ejected from the nations amongst whom they live, like Cain

That the Jews are cursed to be slaves like Esau

Here is a list of instances where Christians expelled the Jews in line with the teachings and exhortations of the Catholic Church.

And how about this: ‘THIS anthology which brings together texts from the main Catholic theorists of Germany, from Gorres to Vogelsang, MAKES US BELIEVE THAT NATIONAL-SOCIALISM [NAZISM] WAS BORN OUT OF CATHOLIC IDEAS‘.(113)

Here we have the Vatican conducting beatification of Pope Pius IX, a deeply ingrained antisemitic within the Catholic Church, who reigned from 1846 to 1878, and was beatified by Pope John-Paul II on September 3 in a ceremony attended by thousands of pilgrims in St Peter’s Square in 2000.

In fact, the Vatican is the “Great Whore” spoken of in scripture.

Here are the “Religious Luciferian Symbols” the Vatican uses.

Here is the history of the sign of the cross and it’s idolatrous usage by the Vatican.

cross pagan Egyptian Osiris

Note that the Isra’elites carried along their idols from Egypt, with the women wearing earrings and other jewelry — which was almost always an image of the “sovereign” or “sovereignness.” These women had spent 400 years worshiping Osiris, which was pictured as a tiny or large golden calf.

Apis was the beast-sovereign of ancient Egypt, and was also known as Mnevis and Onuphis. This Apis / Mnevis / Onuphis (Apis) was regarded as the avatar or Incarnation of the god Osiris, whose soul, it was said, had transmigrated into the body of a bull.

Bacchus Babylonian Messiah head band covering a person

When one considers that the Buddhist, like the Babylonian cross, was the recognized emblem of Tammuz (Eze 8:14), who was known as the mistletoe branch, or “All-heal,” then one can understand just how the sacred Initial should be represented as covered with leaves,with Rome adopting and calling it the

“Medicine which preserves the healthful, heals the sick, and does what mere human power alone could never do.”

To identify Tammuz with the sun it was joined sometimes to the circle of the sun as in figure on left; sometimes it was inserted in the circle, as in figure on right.

Phallwinged T for Tammuz with the sun

This Pagan symbol seems first to have crept into the Christian Church in Egypt, with a statement of Tertullian showing that Christianity had completely adopted that Pagan symbol. The first form of that which is called the Christian Cross and found on Christian monuments in Egypt, is the unequivocal Pagan Tau, or Egyptian “Sign of life. “Statement of Sir G. Wilkinson:

“A still more curious fact may be mentioned respecting this hieroglyphical character [the Tau], that the early Christians of Egypt adopted it in lieu of the cross, which was afterwards substituted for it, prefixing it to inscriptions in the same manner as the cross in later times. For, though Dr. Young had some scruples in believing the statement of Sir A. Edmonstone, that it holds that position in the sepulchres of the great Oasis, I can attest that such is the case, and that numerous inscriptions, headed by the Tau, are preserved to the present day on early Christian monuments.”

See image of Bacchus below and take note of the sign of the cross and the instruments of Apollo (Apollyon, Abaddon)

Bacchus with cross instruments of Apollo (Apollyon, Abaddon)

And not only that, but there is hardly a Pagan tribe where the cross has not been found! The cross was worshiped by the Pagan Celts: “It is a fact,” says Maurice,

“not less remarkable than well-attested, that the Druids in their groves were accustomed to select the most stately and beautiful tree as an emblem of the Deity they adored, and having cut the side branches, they affixed two of the largest of them to the highest part of the trunk, in such a manner that those branches extended on each side like the arms of a man, and, together with the body, presented the appearance of a HUGE CROSS, and on the bark, in several places, was also inscribed the letter Thau.” It was worshipped in Mexico for ages before the Roman Catholic missionaries set foot there, large stone crosses being erected, probably to the “god of rain.”

Thus, the cross, just like today in Christianity, was widely worshiped, and/or regarded as a sacred emblem,
and was the unequivocal symbol of Bacchus, the Babylonian Messiah. He is represented with a head-band covered with crosses in the above figure.

“From a Biblical perspective the Greek word stauros denotes an ‘upright stake’…– not a cross — agreeing with the Aramaic [Peshitta text-The Messiah] was put on an upright stake, not ‘cross-ified.’”(Andrew Gabriel Roth, Aramaic English New Testament, app., p. 916, 76).

The Greek word stauros means staff, stake , pole, or beam, corresponding to the Hebrew word nas, which the serpent Nehushtan was lifted up with in the desert (John 3:14, Numbers 2:19; 2 Kings 18:4).” (Lew White, Fossilized Customs, 8th ed., p.114).

And check some of these quotes out:

In his book, Cardinal Newman admits that; the “temples, incense, oil lamps, votive offerings, holy water, Holidays, and seasons of devotion, processions, blessings of the fields, sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure (of priests, munks and nuns), images, and statues… are all of PAGAN ORIGIN.” — The Development of the Christian Religion Cardinal Newman p.359

And the penetration of the religion of Babylon became so general and also so well known that Rome was called the “New Babylon.”– -Faith of our fathers 1917 ed. Cardinal Gibbons, p. 106

“Confiding then in the power of Christianity to resist the infection of evil, and to transmute the instruments and appendages of demon worship to an evangelical use… the rulers of the church from early times were prepared should occasion arise, to adopt, or imitate, or sanction the existing rites and customs of the populace.” — Development of Christian Doctrine, Cardinal Newman. p. 372

Cardinal Newman lists many examples of things of “pagan origin” which the papacy brought into the church “in order to recommend the new religion to the heathen: “in order to recommend the new religion to the heathen:” “The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; holy water; asylums [hermitages, monasteries and convents]; [pagan] holy-days, processions, sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure, the ring in marriage, turning to the East, images, . . . and the Kyrie Eleison.” — Cardinal J. H. Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine, 1920 edition, p.373 [Roman Catholic].

“The [Catholic] Church took the pagan philosophy and made it the buckler of faith against the heathen. She took the pagan Roman Pantheon, temple of all the gods, and made it sacred to all the martyrs; so it stands to this day. She took the pagan Sunday and made it the Christian Sunday. She took the pagan Easter and made it the feast we celebrate during this season . . . The Sun was a foremost god with heathendom . . . The sun has worshipers at this hour in Persia and other lands . . . Hence the Church would seem to say, ‘Keep that old pagan name [Sunday]. It shall remain consecrated, sanctified.’ And thus the pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday, sacred to Jesus” — William L. Gildea, “Paschale Gaudium,” in The Catholic World, 58, March, 1894, p. 809 [A Roman Catholic weekly].

“in order to recommend the new religion to the heathen:” “The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; holy water; asylums [hermitages, monasteries and convents]; [pagan] holy-days, processions, sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure, the ring in marriage, turning to the East, images, . . . and the Kyrie Eleison.” — J. H. Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine, 1920 edition, p.373 [Roman Catholic].

“The mighty Catholic Church was little more then the Roman Empire baptized.”– A. C, Flick, The Rise of the Mediaeval Church, 1909 edition, p. 148. “From ancient Babylon came the cult of the virgin mother-goddess, who was worshiped as the highest of gods–see S. H. Langdon, Semitic Mythology, 1931 edition. This worship was taken over as Mary-worship by Rome. Heathen sun-worship on Sunday was likewise adopted by the Roman apostasy.”

“In order to attach to Christianity great attraction in the eyes of the nobility, the priests adopted the outer garments and adornments which were used in pagan cults.” — Life of Constantine, Eusabius, cited in Altai-Nimalaya, p. 94

“The Church did everything it could to stamp out such ‘pagan’ rites, but had to capitualet and allow the rites to continue with only the name of the local diety changed to some Christian saint’s name.” — Religious Tradition and Myth. Dr. Edwin Goodenough, Professor of Religion, Harvard University. p. 56, 57

“From the foregoing, which treats merely of the more important solar festivals, it is clear that these products of paganism are as much in force at present …  as they ever were, and that Christianity countenances, and in many cases has actually adopted and practiced, pagan rites whose heathen significance is merely lost sight of because attention is not called tot the source whence these rites have sprung. So heavy was this infiltration that Sir Samuel Dill exclaims: “Christianity is only a sect of the Mithraists.” — Roman Society from Nero to Marcus Aurelius, p. VII

“We know that Mithraism was a state religion of Rome at the time that the Christian church was established there. Evidently tenants of Mithraism such as Sunday worship and eating the wafer in the mass were adopted into Christianity at that time” — Jim Arrabito “666 & the Mark”

Stanley’s History, page 40: “The popes filled the place of the vacant emperors at Rome, inheriting their power, their prestige, and their titles from PAGANISM.”

“In short, sun worship, symbolically speaking, lies at the very heart of the great festivals which the Christian Church celebrates today, and these relics of heathen religion have, through the medium of their sacred rites, curiously enough blended with practices and beliefs utterly antagonistic to the spirit which prompted them.” — Sun Lore of All Ages, Olcott, p. 248

“Yet the cross itself is the oldest of phallic emblems, and the lozenge-shaped windows of cathedrals are proof that the yonic symbols have survived the destructions of the pagan Mysteries. The very structure of the church itself is permeated with (sexual symbolism) phallicism. Remove from the Christian Church all emblems of Priapic origin and nothing is left…” — The secret teaching of all ages by Manley P. Hall

“When the zealots of the primitave Christian Church sought to Christianize paganism, the pagan initiates retorted with a powerful effort to paganize Christianity. The Christians failed but the pagans succeeded. With the decline of paganism the initiated pagan hierophants transferred their base of operations to the new vehicle of primitive Christianity, adopting the symbols of the new cult to conceal those eternal verities which are ever the priceless possession of the wise.” — The secret teachings of all ages, Manley P. Hall p. CLXXXV

Don’t you remember the warning from 2 Timothy about a time that would come when people would not seek sound teachings?

2 Timothy 4:3 “For their shall be a time when they shall not bear sound teaching, but according to their own desires, they shall heap up for themselves teachers tickling the ear, and they shall indeed turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to myths…”

Now we turn to the “Sabbatarians.”

Sabbatarians are those that call themselves “Natsarim,” and who observe Jewish holidays, but trust in the Torah for their salvation, and also keeping a watered-down version of Sabbath Day “rest,” rather than the trusting in the finished work of Yahusha at Calvary.

They have an almost universal disdain of Paul, who was commissioned to the Gentiles by none other than Yahusha the Messiah, to preach the Truth to. Remember, it was Paul who rebuked Peter for trusting in the Torah and it’s circumcision and other requirements, rather than in Messiah, and said that those who did this were “fallen” from grace.

Let’s see where they err…

Galatians 2:3 “And I went up by revelation and laid before them that Besorah which I proclaim among the Gentiles…But as for the false brothers, sneakingly brought in, who sneaked in to spy out our freedom which we have in Messiah Yahusha-paleoin order to enslave us, to these we did not yield in subjection, not even for an hour, so that the truth of the Besorah remains with you. But from those who were esteemed to be whatever — what they were, it makes no difference to me, Elohim shows no partiality — for those who were esteemed contributed naught to me. But on the contrary, when they saw that the Besorah to the uncircumcised had been entrusted to me, even as Kepha [or "Peter" as we know him today]  to the circumcised — for He who worked in Kepha to make him an emissary to the circumcised also worked in me for the gentiles. So, when Ya’aqob, Kepha and Yohanan, who seemed to be supporters, came to know the favour that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabah the right had of fellowship, in order that we go to the gentiles and they to the circumcised…11. And when Kepha had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was at fault. For before some came from Ya’aqob, he was eating with the gentiles, but when they came, he began to withdraw and separate himself, in fear of those of the circumcision. And the rest of the Yahudim joined him in hypocrisy, so that even Barnabah  was led away by their hypocrisy. But when I saw that they are not walking straight according t the truth of the Besorah, I said to Kepha before them all, “If you, being a Yehudite, live as a gentile and not as the Yahudim, why do you compel gentiles to live as Yahudim? We, Yahudim by nature and not of the gentiles, sinners, knowing that a man is not declared right by works of Torah, but through belief in Yahusha-paleoMessiah, even we have believed in Messiah Yahusha-paleo, in order to be declared right by belief in Messiah and not by works of Torah, because by works of Torah no flesh shall be declared right.  Chapter 3:2 “This only I wish to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by works of Torah, or by the hearing of belief? Are you so senseless? Having begun in the Spirit, do you now end in the flesh?…5. Is He, then, who is supplying the Spirit to you and working miracles among you, doing it by works of Torah, or by hearing of belief?”

As we can see above, no flesh shall be saved obeying the Torah, which the Sabbatarians don’t even fully obey, anyway, their hypocrisy evident to everyone who knows the truth of scripture. And besides this, many Sabbatarians who call themselves “Natsarim,” only believe that the Son is the Father and the two are the same, which clearly the scriptures do not teach in the new or old covenants. Imagine the Son having an imaginary conversation with himself as the Father? This is nonsensical to me.

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.

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.

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.”

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
