How to Become Saved by Immersion Water Baptism through the Belief in the Perfect Blood Atonement Provided By Elohim Through His Sinless Son, Yahusha/ Yahushua Messiah (Mashiach)

If you died today or “tomorrow,” will you then be in some sort of state of non-existence? Love, hate and the question of where all matter came from that exists have not been properly answered in the context of a belief in a non-created universe. If there is a Creator, then, assuming He is not schizophrenic and opposes Himself, there must be at least one opponent, since there is true evil in the world. Satan is the enemy of all souls, with Hell created for Satan and one third of the messengers of Elohim who followed him in rebellion against the Most High El [Yeshayahu (Isaiah)14:3-27.] Being perfect, Elohim required a perfect sacrifice in order for any flesh to be redeemed, as Scripture records in Romans 3:10-26:

As it has been written, “There is none righteous, no, not one! There is no one who is understanding, there is none who is seeking Elohim. They all have turned aside, they have together become worthless. There is none who does good, no, not one.” “Their throat is an open tomb, with their tongues they have deceived,” “The poison of adders is under their lips,” “Whose mouth is filled with cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and wretchedness are in their ways, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of Elohim before their eyes.”

19. And we know that whatever the Torah says, it says to those who are in the Torah, so that every mouth might be stopped and all the world come under the judgment before Elohim. Therefore by the works of the Torah no flesh shall be declared right before Him, for by the Torah is the knowledge of sin. But now, apart from the Torah, a righteousness of Elohim has been revealed, being witnessed by the Torah and the Prophets, and the righteousness of Elohim is through belief in Yahusha Anointed One [Editor’s Note: Hebrew — Yahusha] Messiah to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the esteem of Elohim, being declared right, without paying, by His favour through the redemption which is in Messiah Yahusha Anointed One, whom Elohim set forth as an atonement, through belief in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His tolerance Elohim had passed over the sins that had taken place before, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He is righteous and declares righteous the one who has belief in Yahusha Anointed One.

Yahusha Messiah was sinless, yet He, Himself, was baptized by John the baptizer, whom was immersing people in the Jordan River to “wash” away their sins as recorded in Scripture in Yohanan (John) 3:1-36 and Yohanan 1:1-37 below:

Yohanan (John in “Christian Bibles”) 3:1-36 And there was a man of the Pharisees, Nakdimon was his name, a ruler of the Yahudim. This one came to Yahusha Anointed One by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from Elohim, for no one is able to do these signs You do if Elohim is not with him.” Yahusha Anointed One answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born from above, he is unable to see the reign of Elohim.” Nakdimon said to Him, “How is a man able to be born when he is old? Is he able to enter into his mother’s womb a second time and be born?”

3. Yahusha Anointed Oneanswered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he is unable to enter into the reign of Elohim. That which has been born of the flesh is flesh and that which has been born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You have to be born from above.’ “The Spirit breathes where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who has been born of the Spirit.” Nakdimon answered and said to Him, “How is it possible for this to take place?”

10. Yahusha Anointed One answered and said to him, “Are you a teacher of Yisra’el and do not know this? Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak what We know and witness what We have seen and you do not receive Our witness. If you do not believe when I spoke to you about earthly matters, how are you going to believe when I speak to you about the heavenly matters? And no one has gone up into the heavens except He who came down from the heavens — the Son of Adam. And as Mosheh lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so the Son of Adam has to be lifted up, so that whoever is believing in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life.

16. “For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. For Elohim did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world and men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked. For everyone who is practicing evil matters hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But the one doing the truth comes to the light, so that his works are clearly seen, that they have been wrought in Elohim.”

22. After this, Yahusha Anointed One and His taught ones came into the land of Yahudah and He remained there with them and was immersing. And Yahanan was also immersing in Ayim near Salim, because there was plenty of water there. And they were coming and were being immersed, for Yohanan had not yet been put into prison. Then a dispute arose between some of Yohanan’s taught ones and the Yahudim about cleansing, and they came to Yohanan and said to him, “Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Yarden, to who you have witnessed, see, He is immersing and all are coming to Him!”

27. Yohanan answered and said, “No man is able to receive any matter unless it is given to him from the heavens. You yourselves are witness for me that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah but I am sent ahead of Him.’ He that has the bride is the bridegroom, but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the voice of the bridegroom. so this joy of mine is complete. It is right for Him to increase, but me to decrease. He who comes from above is over all, he who is from the earth is of the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from the heavens is over all.

32. And what He has seen and heard, that He witnesses. He who receives His witness has set his seal that Elohim is true. For He whom Elohim has sent speaks the Words of Elohim, for Elohim does not give the Spirit by measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all into His hand. He who believes in the Son possesses everlasting life but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of Elohim remains on Him.”

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Yohanan 1:1-37 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with Elohim and the Word was Elohim. He was in the beginning with Elohim. All came to be through Him and without Him not even on came to be that came to be. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name was Yohanan. This one came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not that Light, but that he might bear witness of that Light. He was the true Light, which enlightens every man, coming into the world. He was in the world and the world came to be through Him and the world did not know Him. He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to those believing in His Name, who were born, not of blood nor of the desire of flesh nor the desire of man, but of Elohim.

14. And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth. Yohanan bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has become before me, because He was before me.'” And out of His completeness we all did receive and favour upon favour, for the Torah was given through Mosheh — the favour and the truth came through Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

18. No one has ever seen Elohim. The only brought-forth Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He did declare. Now this was the witness of Yohanan when the Yahudim sent from Yerushalayim priests and Lewites to ask him, “Who are you?” And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” And they asked him, “What then, are you Eliyahu?” So he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.”

23. He said, “I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH,’ as the prophet Yeshayahu said.” And those sent were of the Pharisees, and they asked him, saying, “Why then do you immerse if you are not the Messiah, nor Eliyahu, nor the Prophet?”

26. Yohanan answered them, saying, “I immerse in water, but in your midst stands One coming after me, who has become before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loosen.” This took place in Beyth Anyah beyond the Yarden, where Yohanan was immersing.

29. The next day Yohanan saw Yahusha Anointed One coming toward him and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world! This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has become before me, for He was before me.’ And I did not know Him, but that He might be revealed to Yisra’el, therefore I came immersing in water.”

32. And Yohanan bore witness, saying, “I have seen the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove and remain on Him. And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to immerse in water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit coming down and remaining on Him, this is He who immerses in the Set-Apart Spirit.’ And I have seen and have witnessed that this is the Son of Elohim.”

35. Again the following day, Yohanan was standing with two of his taught ones, and looking at Yahusha Anointed One walking, he said, “See the Lamb of Elohim!” And the two taught ones heard him speaking and they followed Yahusha Anointed One.

So, the question may arise? ‘Is baptism necessary for salvation?’ The answere is yes, according to Scripture. See here.

Another question may arise, such as, “Can I baptize myself?” Since Scripture says in Mattithyahu (Matthew) chapter 18 verse 19-20, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning any matter that they ask, it shall be dome for them by My Father in the heavens. For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst,” then it seems to me that there only needs to be one other person present with you there, which is your baptizer. It doesn’t say that the other person has to be saved, though. So, you plausibly can have someone who is not a Believer, and who has not been saved, immerse someone else under water in the Name of Yahusha/Yahushua Messiah. Any water where the entire body (hair not necessary) can be immersed under water, like a large bath tub, swimming pool or any deep body of water like a river, lake or ocean, can be used.

The one who is baptizing shall put his hand upon the one he or she is baptizing and help them to completely immerse under water, saying, “I baptize you in the Name of Yahusha (or Yahushua) Messiah (or Savoir, Redeemer, Mashiach or Anointed One, but I do not recommend “Christ,” since this name is Greek and has as its main-root definition as another sovereign) and in the Name of the Father, YHWH (or YAHUAH or Elohim).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(a) LARTH: There was an Etruscan house [sovereign] whose name was Lar, which signified “Lord”, also known as Larth,169 who later on became very popular n Rome and became known as Lares (plural), because as idol statues they were usually in pairs. This [sovereign] was invoked together with Janus, Jupiter, Mars, Quirinus and Bellona.170 The Greek equivalent of this name was Heros,171 which was another name for Zeus, as we have seen previously in this article. A feminine form was known as Lara,172 who was the beloved of Mercury, the Sun-[sovereign]. Another name for Zeus was Larissaeus,173 which also was another name for Apollo. Zeus was also known as Larasios 174 or Lariseus,174 while Larasios was also a surname of Helios.174 Typical of the syncretism and polytheism of those days, we read of emperor Alexander Severus (222 – 235 C.E.) who “had images of Abraham, Christ and Alexander the Great among his household Lares.”175 These Lares are to be found in the East as well, seen in niches in Hindu houses.176 However, what is the analogy between Larth (Lar) and Lord? Firstly, all sources agree, that this Lar or Larth means: Lord. Secondly, it is well documented that “the” and “d” were virtually interchangeably used, varying from nation to nation. Thirdly, in Old English and Middle English it was common to find the “o” and “a” interchangeably used too. In the Middle English Dictionary, editor S.M. Kuhn, we read 177 that lord was earlier spelt lard; that lor became lord; that lor was spelt lar in Old English (meaning: the action or process of teaching or preaching); that Lore-fader was also spelt Larfaderr or Larefadir or larfadir (meaning:teacher); that lorspel was lar-spel in Old English (meaning: that which is taught in religion); and that lor-theu was previously also spelt lar-theow, lardewe, lardewen, lauerd, lordeau (meaning: teacher or spiritual or theological teacher). Thus we can easily see the ease of identifying Lard, Lord, Larth, Lor, Lar, Lortheu, Lartheow, Lardewe with one another. In fact, it is easier to trace the origin of “Lord” according to this well documented evidence, rather than the commonly held belief that it originated from hlaf-weard.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Origin and definition of the word ‘glory’ (the following definition of ‘glory’ can be found HERE at the iahushua.com web site)

No fewer than 25 Hebrew words are rendered by doxa in the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament. Of these 25 words, 7 are more common, the most important being kabad. This Greek word doxa of the Greek translation of the Old Testament, and the doxa of the New Testament, are usually rendered “glory” in the English versions, a translation of the Latin gloria. If we first look at the Hebrew Old Testament, we find that kabad has usually been rendered “honour” when applied to man, but rendered “glory” when applied to our Heavenly Father. Why were they so keen to apply the word “glory” to our Mighty One? What is the meaning of the word “glory”?

Funk & Wagnalls, New Standard Dictionary of the English Language, under “glory”, gives the religious symbolic meaning, “In religious symbolism, the complete representation of an emanation of light from the person of a sanctified being consisting of the aureole and the nimbus;” and further on, “The quality of being radiant or shining; brilliancy brightness; luster; as the glory of the sun;” and further on, “A sunburst; any ring of light; a halo.” John Ogilvie

The Comprehensive English Dictionary, under “glory”, explains it as, “splendour, as of the sun.” Similar statements are made by The Oxford English Dictionary and Webster’s New International Dictionary. The latter states, “glory is the general term for the aureola and the nimbus”—aureola being the halo or ring round the sun, and nimbus being the sun-disc.

This meaning, as well as the word itself, would be acceptable if the commonly used Hebrew words of the Old Testament, and the Greek word doxa, have had the same meaning of sun-radiance or circles of light. However, we do not find any trace of sun-radiance or emanation of light in any of these Hebrew words, nor in the Greek doxa. Once more we are rudely awakened to the fact of the adoption of Sun-worship into the Church, the fusion of Sun-worship and the Messianic Faith. In the dictionaries, encyclopaedias and ecclesiastical books, we find many illustrations of our Saviour, the Virgin, and the saints, encircled with radiant circles or emanations of light around them.

What are the meanings then of the Scriptural Hebrew words? Kabad means honour, dignity or esteem in its figurative sense, as well as weight, in its literal sense. Pa’ar means repute. Halal means praiseworthiness or praise. Adar and hadar means to make great. Tipharah means repute. Shavak means to esteem. The Greek word doxa simply means opinion, estimation, esteem, repute or dignity, coming from the verb dokeo, which means “to seem”.

Thus, the ecclesiastical symbolic meaning of the word “glory”, being that of radiance or emanation of light as from the sun, is totally un-Scriptural. It is strong evidence of the Church’s solarisation of our Messiah and of His Father. The Church identified Elohim with the Sun (sovereign), which was the prevailing (sovereign) of the Roman emperors, the Roman capital and its empire. However, not only does the concept of “glory” stem from Sun-worship, but we also find proof of “glory” (gloria) as having been a Roman (sovereigness), discovered in the form of an icon personified by a woman, the upper part of her body almost naked, holding a circle on which are the zodiac signs.

Pauly-Wissowa also defines Gloria as a personification of fame, the word being found very frequently on the coins of Constantine and his successors. Besides the frequent occurrence of the word Gloria on the coins, the image of this (sovereigness) is found on two coins, one of Constantius II and one of Constantine II.

We should therefore eliminate the word “glory” from our religious vocabulary for three reasons:
1) We have been commanded in Exod. 23:13 to “make no mention of the names of other mighty ones, nor let it be heard from your mouth”—especially in our worship, applying these names to the One we love, and His Son.
2) The concept of the word “glory” in religious symbolism, as we read in Funk & Wagnalls Dictionary, is that of the emanation or radiance of light, as of the sun. This is proof of the solarisation of our beloved Saviour, identifying Him, as well as His Father, with the Sun-(sovereign).
3) The Hebrew words, as well as Greek word doxa, do not carry the meaning of sun-radiance or sunlight at all. Therefore the word “glory” is an incorrect rendering of those words.
What then should we use instead of the word “glory”? Simply what the Hebrew words and the Greek word mean: “esteem”, or “high esteem” or “repute”. These words carry the meaning of the Scriptural words and do not stem from the names of deities as far as we know, and should be used wherever our versions have “glory”.

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

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

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

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.

Mattithyahu Means Gift of YAHUAH (YHWH) — Yahusha (OSWHY) is Born: Chapter 1

1:1 The cepher of the genealogy of OSWHY Mashiach, Son of Dawiḏ, Son of Aḇraham:
2 Aḇrahim brought forth Yitsḥaq and Yitsḥaq brought forth Ya‘aqoḇ and Ya‘aqoḇ brought forth Yahuḏah
and his brothers.
3 And Yahuḏah brought forth Perets and Zeraḥ by Tamar and Perets brought forth Ḥetsron and Ḥetsron
brought forth Ram.
4 And Ram brought forth Amminaḏaḇ and Amminaḏaḇ brought forth Naḥshon and Naḥshon brought forth
Salmon.
5 And Salmon brought forth Bo‘az by Raḥaḇ and Bo‘az brought forth Oḇĕḏ by Ruth and Oḇĕḏ brought
forth Yishai.
6 And Yishai brought forth Dawiḏ the sovereign and Dawiḏ the sovereign brought forth Shelomoh by
Uriyah’ s wife.
7 And Shelomoh brought forth Reḥaḇ‘am and Reḥaḇ‘am brought forth Aḇiyah and Aḇiyah brought forth
Asa.
8 And Asa brought forth Yehoshaphat and Yehoshaphat brought forth Yoram and Yoram brought forth Uzziyah.
9 And Uzziyah brought forth Yotham and Yotham brought forth Aḥaz and Aḥaz brought forth Ḥizqiyahu.
10 And Ḥizqiyahu brought forth Menashsheh and Menashsheh brought forth Amon and Amon brought
forth Yoshiyahu.
11 And Yoshiyahu brought forth Yeḵonyah and his brothers at the time of the exile to Baḇel.
12 And after the exile to Baḇel, Yeḵonyah brought forth She‘alti‘ĕl and She‘alti‘ĕl brought forth Zerubbaḇel.
13 And Zerubbaḇel brought forth Aḇihuḏ and Aḇihuḏ brought forth Elyaqim and Elyaqim brought forth Azor.
14 And Azor brought forth Tsaḏoq and Tsaḏoq brought forth Aqim and Aqim brought forth Elihuḏ.
15 And Elihuḏ brought forth El‘azar and El‘azar brought forth Mattan and Mattan brought forth Ya‘aqoḇ.
16 And Ya‘aqoḇ brought forth Yosĕph the husband of Miryam, of whom was born OSWHY who is called Mashiach.
17 So all the generations from Aḇrahim to Dawiḏ were fourteen generations and from Dawiḏ until the exile to Baḇel were fourteen generations and from the exile to Baḇel until the Mashiach were fourteen generations.
18 But the birth of OSWHY Mashiach was as follows: After His mother Miryam was engaged to Yosĕph, before they came together, she was found to be pregnant from the Ruach ha’Qodesh.
19 And Yosĕph her husband, being righteous and not wishing to make a show of her, had in mind to put her away secretly.
20 But while he thought about this, see, a mal’akh of YHWH appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Yosĕph, son of Dawiḏ, do not be afraid to take Miryam as your wife, for that which is in her was brought forth from the Ruach ha’Qodesh.
21 “She shall give birth to a Son and you shall call His Name OSWHY for He shall save His people from their sins.”
22 And all this came to be in order to fill what was spoken by YHWH through the naḇi, saying,
23 “See, a maiden shall conceive and she shall give birth to a Son and they shall call His Name Immanu’ĕl,” which translated, means,“Ĕl with us.”
24 And Yosĕph, awaking from his sleep, did as the mal’akh of YHWH commanded him and took his wife,
25 but knew her not until she gave birth to her Son, the first-born. And he called His Name OSWHY.

2:1 And OSWHY having been born in Bĕyth Leḥem of Yahuḏah in the days of Herodes the sovereign, see, Magi from the East came to Yerushalayim, saying, “Where is He who has been born Sovereign of the Yahuḏim? For we saw His star in the East and have come to do reverence to Him.”
3 And Herodes the sovereign, having heard, was troubled and all Yerushalayim with him.
4 And having gathered all the chief kōhenim and scribes of the people together, he asked them where the
Mashiach was to be born.
5 And they said to him, “In Bĕyth Leḥem of Yahuḏah, for thus it has been written by the naḇi,
6 ‘But you, Bĕyth Leḥem, in the land of Yahuḏah, you are by no means least among the rulers of Yahuḏah, for out of you shall come a Ruler who shall shepherd My people Yisra’ĕl.’”
7 Then Herodes, having called the Magi secretly, learned exactly from them what time the star appeared.
8 And having sent them to Bĕyth Leḥem, he said, “Go and search diligently for the Child and when you have
found Him, bring back word to me, so that I too might go and do reverence to Him.”
9 And having heard the sovereign, they went. And see, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, until it came and stood over where the Child was.
10 And seeing the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.
11 And coming into the house, they saw the Child with Miryam His mother and fell down and did reverence to
Him and opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.
12 And having been warned in a dream that they should not return to Herodes, they departed for their own country by another way.
13 And when they had left, see, a mal’akh of YHWH appeared to Yosĕph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the Child and His mother and flee to Mitsrayim and remain there until I bring you word, for Herodes is about to seek the Child to destroy Him.”
14 And rising up, he took the Child and His mother by night and departed for Mitsrayim,
15 and remained there until the death of Herodes, to fill what was spoken by YHWH through the naḇi, saying, “Out of Mitsrayim I have called My Son.”
16 Then Herodes, having seen that he was fooled by the Magi, was greatly enraged and he sent forth and slew all the male children in Bĕyth Leḥem and in all its borders, from two years old and under, according
to the time which he had exactly learnt from the Magi.
17 Then was filled what was spoken by Yirmeyahu the naḇi, saying,
18 “A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing and weeping and great mourning – Raḥĕl weeping for her children,
refusing to be comforted, because they were no more.”
19 And Herodes having died, see, a mal’akh of YHWH appeared in a dream to Yosĕph in Mitsrayim,
20 saying, “Arise and take the Child and His mother and go into the land of Yisra’ĕl, for those seeking
the life of the Child are dead.”
21 And rising up, he took the Child and His mother and came into the land of Yisra’ĕl.
22 But hearing that Archelaos was reigning over Yahuḏah instead of his father Herodes, he was afraid to go there. And having been warned in a dream, he departed to the parts of Galil,
23 and came and dwelt in a city called Natsareth – thus to fill what was spoken by the neḇi’im, “He shall be called a Natsarene.”

3:1 And in those days Yoḥanan the Immerser came proclaiming in the wilderness of Yahuḏah,
2 and saying, “Repent, for the reign of the shamayim has come near!”
3 For this is he who was spoken of by the naḇi Yeshayahu, saying, “A voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way of YHWH, make His paths straight.’”
4 And Yoḥanan had a garment of camel’s hair and a leather girdle around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey.
5 Then Yerushalayim and all Yahuḏah and all the country around the Yardĕn went out to him,
6 and they were immersed by him in the Yardĕn, confessing their sins.
7 And seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his immersion, he said to them, “Brood of adders! Who has warned you to flee from the coming wrath?
8 “Bear, therefore, fruits worthy of repentance,
9 and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Aḇrahim as father.’ For I say to you that Elohim is able
to raise up children to Aḇrahim from these stones.
10 “And the axe is already laid to the root of the trees. Every tree, then, which does not bear good fruit
is cut down and thrown into the fire. “I indeed immerse you in water unto repentance, but He who is coming
after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to bear. He shall immerse you in the Ruach ha’Qodesh and fire.
12 “His winnowing fork is in His hand and He shall thoroughly cleanse His threshing-floor and gather His
wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff He shall burn with unquenchable fire.”
13 Then OSWHY came from Galil to Yoḥanan at the Yardĕn to be immersed by him.
14 But oḥanan was hindering Him, saying, “I need to be immersed by You and You come to me?”
15 But OSWHY answering, said to him,“Permit it now, for thus it is fitting for us to fill all righteousness.” Then he permitted Him.
16 And having been immersed, OSWHY went up immediately from the water and see, the shamayim were opened and He saw the Spirit of Elohim descending like a dove and coming upon Him,
17 and see, a voice out of the shamayim, saying, “This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I did delight.”

4:1 Then OSWHY was led up by the Ruach into the wilderness to be tried by Heylel.
2 And after having fasted forty days and forty nights, He was hungry.
3 And the trier came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of Elohim, command that these stones become bread.”
4 But He answering, said, “It has been written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that
comes from the mouth of YHWH.’”
5 Then Heylel took Him up into the qodesh city, set Him on the edge of the Miqdash,
6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of Elohim, throw Yourself down. For it has been written, ‘He shall
command His mal’akh concerning you,’ and ‘In their hands they shall bear you up so that you do not dash your foot against a stone.’”
7 OSWHY said to him, “It has also been written, ‘You shall not try YHWH your Elohim.’”
8 Again, Heylel took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the reigns of the world and their esteem,
9 and said to Him, “All these I shall give You if You fall down and worship me.”
10 Then OSWHY said to him, “Go, Satan! For it has been written, ‘You shall worship YHWH your Elohim and
Him alone you shall serve.’”
11 Then Heylel left Him, and see, mal’akh came and attended Him.
12 And OSWHY, having heard that Yoḥanan had been put in prison, withdrew into Galil.
13 And leaving Natsareth, He came and dwelt in Kephar Naḥum, which is by the sea, in the borders of Zeḇulun and Naphtali,
14 to fill what was spoken by Yeshayahu the naḇi, saying,
15 “Land of Zebulon and land of Naphtali, the way of the sea, beyond the Yardĕn, Galil of the goyim –
16 the people who sat in darkness saw a great light and upon those who sat in the land and shadow of death, light arose to them.”
17 From that time OSWHY began to proclaim and to say, “Repent, for the reign of the shamayim has drawn
near.”
18 And OSWHY, walking by the Sea of Galil, saw two brothers, Shim‘on called Kĕpha and Andri his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen.
19 And He said to them, “Follow Me and I shall make you fishers of men.”
20 And immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
21 And going on from there, He saw two other brothers, Ya‘aqoḇ the son of Zaḇdai and Yoḥanan his brother, in the boat with Zaḇdai their father, mending their nets. And He called them,
22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed Him.
23 And OSWHY went about all Galil, teaching in their qāhāl and proclaiming the Besorah of the reign and
healing every disease and every bodily weakness among the people.
24 And news about Him went out into all Syria. And they brought to Him all who were sick, afflicted with various diseases and pains and those who were demon-possessed and epileptics and paralytics. And He healed
them.
25 And large crowds – from Galil and Dekapolis and Yerushalayim and Yahuḏah and beyond the Yardĕn –
followed Him.

Mark of the Beast 666: Coming Soon to A Town Near You on Planet Earth! With Buying or Selling Forbidden Unless You Serve Satan!

Revelation Chapter 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, like a sound of thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a white horse and he who sat on it holding a bow. And a crown was given to him and he went out overcoming and to overcome.

WARNING TO PLANET EARTH!!!: Yeshayahu Chapters 6-35 and all prophecies in the Word of YHWH concerning the soon-approaching reign of Yahusha on earth for 1,000 years are a time for the sifting of people throughout the entire world, getting ready a Bride that is WITHOUT SPOT OR BLEMISH. All false teachers, preachers, and others — including those who continue to violate the warning of Yahusha not to add  to the prophecy of the book of Revelation or they shall receive the plagues, or take away from it and have your name taken out of the Book of Life — will be punished. Yahusha is coming with FIRE to devour those who devour the earth and its people. The Lake of Fire is the second death and they rest neither day nor night of those who take the soon-coming Mark of the Beast, where you may neither buy nor sell unless you have it, where also the antimessiah and his false prophet, along with Hell, Death and Satan are also eventually thrown, too. Thanks for listening, 777denny

And when He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” And another horse, fiery red, went out. And is was given to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that they should slay one another. And a great sword was given to him. And when He opened the third living creature say, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a black horse and he who sat on it holding a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wage and three quarts of barley for a day’s wage. And do not harm the oil and the wine.” And when He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a pale horse. And he who sat on it had the Name Death and the grave followed with him. And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with hunger and with death and by the beasts of the earth. And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the beings of those having been slain for the Word of Elohim and for the witness which they held., and they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Master, set-apart and true, until You judge and avenge our blood, on those who dwell on the earth?” And there was given to each one a white robe and they were told that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brother, who would be killed as they were, was completed. And I looked when He opened the sixth seal and saw a great earthquake came to be. And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood. And the stars of the heavens fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs, being shaken by a strong wind. And heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the sovereigns of the earth and the great ones and the rich ones and the slave and every free one, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him sitting on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of His wrath has come and who is able to stand?”

Chapter 7:1 And after this I saw four messengers standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another messenger coming up from the rising of the sun, holding the seal of the living Elohim. And he cried with a loud voice to the four messengers to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, nor the sea nor the trees until we have sealed the servants of our Elohim upon their foreheads.” And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of all the tribes of the children of Yisra’el: of the tribe of Yahudah twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Re’uben twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Menshsheh twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Shim’on twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Lewi twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Yissaskar twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Binyamin twelve thousand were sealed. After this I looked and saw a great crowd which no one was able to count, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes and palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice saying, “Amen! The blessing and the esteem and the wisdom and the thanksgiving and the respect and the power and the might, to our Elohim forever and ever. Amen.” And one of the elders responded, saying to me, “Who are these dressed in white robes and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Master (sir), you know And he said to me, “These are those coming out of the great distress, having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Because of this they are before the throne of Elohim and serve Him day and night in His Dwelling Place. And He who sits on the throne shall spread His Tent over them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the sun strike them, nor any heat, because the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shall shepherd them and lead them to fountains of waters of life. And Elohim shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.”  Chapter 8:3 And another messenger came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer and much incense was given to him, that the should offer it with the prayers of the set-apart ones, went up before Elohim from the hand of the messenger. And the messenger took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it to the earth. And there were noises and thunders and lightnings and an earthquake. And the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. And the first messenger sounded and there came to be hail and fire mixed with blood and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up and all green grass was burned up. And the second messenger sounded and what looked like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the living creatures in the sea died and a third of the ships were destroyed. And the third messenger sounded and a great star fell from the heaven, burning like a torch and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water, and the name of the star is called Wormwood. And a third of the waters became wormwood and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. And the fourth messenger sounded and a third of the sun was struck and a third of the moon and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. And a third of the day did not shine and likewise the night. And I looked and I heard and eagle flying in mid-heaven, crying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those dwelling upon the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three messengers who are about to sound!” Chapter 9:1 And the fifth messenger sounded and I saw a star from the heavens which had fallen to the earth. And the key to the pit of the deep was given to it. And he opened the pit of the deep and smoke went up out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, also the air, because of the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth and authority was given to them as the scorpions of the earth possess authority. And it was said to them tha they shall not harm the grass of the earth, or any green matter, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of Elohim upon their foreheads. And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but to torture them for five months. And their torture was like the torture of a scorpion when it strikes a man. And in those days men shall seek death and shall not find it. And they shall long to die, but death shall flee from them. And the locusts looked like horses prepared for battle and on their heads were crowns like gold and their faces were like the faces of men. And they had hair like women’s hair and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses running into battle. And they have tails like scorpions and stings. And in their tails is their authority to harm men five months. And they have over them a sovereign, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the Name Apolluon. The first woe is past. See, two woes are still coming after this. And the sixth messenger sounded and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Elohim, saying to the sixth messenger who had the  trumpet, “Release the four messengers, those having been bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four messengers, those having been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. And the number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million and I heard the number of them. And this is how I saw the horses in the vision and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fiery red and hyacinth blue and sulphur yellow. And the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions and out of their mouths came fire and smoke and sulphur. A third of mankind was killed by these plagues, by the fire and the smoke and the sulphur which came out of their mouths. For the authority of the horses is in their mouth and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents, having heads. And with them they do harm. And the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship the demons and idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which are neither able to see, nor hear, nor to walk. And they did not repent of their murders, nor of their drug sorceries, nor of their whoring, nor of their thefts. Chapter 11:1 And a reed like a measuring rod was given to me and the messenger stood, saying, “Rise and measure the Dwelling Place of Elohim and the altar and those worshipping in it. But cast out the court which is outside the Dwelling Place, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles and they shall trample the set-apart city under foot for forty-two months. And I shall give unto my two witnesses and they shall prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clad in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that are standing before the Elohim of the earth. And if anyone wishes to harm them, fire comes out from their mouth and consumes their enemies. And if anyone wishes to harm them, he has to be killed in that way. These possess authority to shut the heaven, so that not rain falls in the days of their prophecy. And they possess authority over waters to turn them to blood and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they wish. And then they have ended their witness, the beast coming up out of the pit of the deep shall fight against them and overcome them and kill the, and their dead bodies lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sedom and Mitsrayim, where also our Master was impaled, and some of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations see their dead bodies for three and a half days and not allow their dead bodies to be placed into tombs, and those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them and exult. And they shall send gifts to each other, because these two prophets tortured those dwelling on the earth. And after the three and a half days a spirit of life from Elohim entered into them and they stood upon their feet and great fear fell on those who saw them. And they heard a lud voice from the heavens saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up into the heavens in a cloud and their enemies saw them. And in that hour there came to be a great earthquake and a tenth of the city fell. And in the earthquake seven thousand men were killed and the rest became afraid and gave esteem to the Elohim of the heavens. The second woe is past and see, the third woe is coming speedily. And the seventh messenger sounded and there came to be loud voices in the heaven, saying, “The reign of this world has become the reign of out Master and of His Messiah and He shall reign forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders sitting before Elohim on their thrones fell on their faces and worshipped Elohim, saying, “We give You thanks, O YHWH El Shaddai, the One who is and who was and who is coming, because You have taken Your great power and reigned. And the nations were enraged and Your wrath has come, the time of the dead to be judged and to give the reward to Your servants the prophets and to the set-apart ones and to those who fear Your Name, small and great and to destroy those who destroy the earth.” And the Dwelling Place of Elohim was opened in the heaven and the ark of His covenant was seen in His Dwelling Place. And there came to be lightnings and voices and thunders and an earthquake and great hail. Chapter 12:1 And a great sign was seen in the heaven: a woman clad with the sun, with the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars. And being pregnant, she cried out in labour and in pain to give birth. And another sign was seen in the heaven: and see, a great, fiery dragon having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. And his tale draws a third of the stars of the heavens and throws them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she bore a male child, who was to shepherd all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught away to Elohim and to His throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Elohim, to be nourished there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. And there came to be fighting in the heaven: Mika’el and his messengers fought against the dragon. And the dragon and his messengers fought, but were not strong enough, nor was a place found for them in the heavens any longer. And the great dragon was thrown out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads all the world astray. He was thrown to the earth and his messengers were thrown out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in the heaven, “Now have come the deliverance and the power and the reign of our Elohim and the authority of His Messiah, for the accuser of our brothers, who accused them before out Elohim day and night, has been thrown down. And they overcame him because of the Blood of the Lamb and because of the Word of their witness and they did not love their lives to the death. Because of this rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has little time.” And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. And the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, to fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And out of his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river after the woman, to cause her to be swept away by the river. And the earth helped the woman and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 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 OWYFZ Messiah.  Chapter 13:1 And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns and on his horns ten crowns and on his heads names of blasphemy. And the beast I saw was like a leopard and his feet were like the feet of a bear and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. And I saw one of his heads, as having been slain to death and his deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marvelled after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon who have authority to the beast. And they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to fight with him?” And he was given a mouth speaking great matters and blasphemies and he was given authority to do so forty[two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against Elohim, to blaspheme His Name and His Tenet and those dwelling in the heavens. And it was given to him to fight with the set-apart ones and to overcome them. And authority was given to him over every tribe and tongue and nation. And all those dwelling on the earth, who names have not been written in the Book of life of the slain Lamb, from the foundation fo the world shall worship him. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who brings into captivity shall go into captivity, he who kills with the sword has to be killed with the sword. Here is the endurance of the belief of the set-apart ones. And I saw another feast coming up out of the earth and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he does great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from the heavens on the earth before men. And he leads astray those dwelling on the earth because of those signs which he was given to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword, yet lived. And there was given to him to give spirit to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause to be killed as many as would not worship the image of the beast. And he causes all, both small and great and rich and poor and free and slave, to be given a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads, and that no one should be able to buy or sell except he that has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom! He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beat, for it is the number of a man and his number is 666.

The “Rapture”: Yahusha is Coming With FIRE, Few Will Be ‘Caught Away’ By His Second Coming; Frightfully, People Will Call on Rocks to Fall on Them!

The reason “Judgment Day” has come and gone for the false teachers, preachers, leaders and others is because they are preaching and teaching false doctrines, which Yahusha has forbidden concerning adding and/or taking away from the prophecy of the Book of Revelation. CAUTION: With FIRE WILL YAHUSHA COME AND “RAPTURE” HIS BRIDE AND KILL 200,000,000 of the anti-messiah’s army, SHEER TERROR GRIPING THE HEARTS OF MANKIND WHEN HE APPROACHES EARTH FOR PURGING THE NATIONS WITH FIRE!

These were the sentiments I was feeling concerning the conclusion of writing ‘Yeshuyahu Chapters 6-35′: that Yahusha is coming back to “catch away” (some use the word “rapture”) his Bride as He comes back to earth with FIRE. This is also why men who have taken the Mark of the Beast call (they aren’t singing, they are in sheer terror from His soon-approaching wrath of FIRE) upon the rocks of the caves they are HIDING IN to FALL ON THEM and HIDE THEM from His wrath of fire. But let’s look at a fair amount of scripture to back this assumption up.

Yahusha speaking to His followers, also spoke to us today, beginning in Luke 12:41:

And Kepha said to Him, “Master, do You speak this parable to us, or also to all?” And the Master said, “Who then is the trustworthy and wise manager, who his master shall appoint over his household, to give the portion of food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master shall find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you that he shall appoint him over all his possessions….And that servant who knew his master’s desire and did not prepare, nor did according to his desire, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet did what deserved flogging, shall be beaten with few. Everyone to whom much is given, from him much shall be demanded. To whom much has been entrusted, from him much more shall be asked. I CAME TO SEND FIRE ON THE EARTH and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have an immersion to be immersed with and how distressed I am until it is accomplished!…And he also told the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, ‘A storm is coming,’ and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, ‘There shall be hot weather,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the heavens and of the earth, but HOW IS IT YOU DO NOT DISCERN THIS TIME?”

His “immersion” followed His baptism under water, and was referring to his death and being under the earth for three days. He has yet to accomplish the second part of the prophecy about sending “fire on the earth.”

Let’s look at Malaki (Malachi) 3:1:

“See, I am sending My messenger and he shall prepare the way before Me. Then suddenly the Master you are seeking comes to His Kekal, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. See, He is coming,” said YHWH of hosts. And WHO IS ABLE TO STAND WHEN HE APPEARS? FOR HE IS LIKE THE FIRE OF A REFINER and like the soap of the launderer. And He shall SIT AS A REFINER and a cleanser of silver. And He shall cleanse the sons of Lewi and REFINE them as gold and silver and they shall belong to YHWH, bringing near an offering in righteousness.

We can see what seems to be “cleansing” or “refining” taking place after Yahusha returns to earth in Matithyahu (Matthew) 25:

1 “Then the reign of the heavens shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise and five foolish. those who were foolish, having taken their lamps, took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their containers with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom took time, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard, ‘See, the bridegroom is coming, go our to meet Him!‘ Then all those maidens rose up and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, Give us of your oil, because our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, indeed, there would not be enough for us and you. Instead, go to those who sell and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast and the door was shut. And later the other maidens also came, saying, ‘Master, Master, open up for us!’ But he answering, said, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, because you do not know the DAY or the HOUR in which the Son of Adam is coming…Then he who had received two talents came and said, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents. See, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and trustworthy servant. You were trustworthy over a little, I shall set you over much. Enter into the joy of your Master.’ And the one who had received the one talent also came and said, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown and gathering where you  have not scattered seed, and being afraid, I went and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.’ And his master answering, said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seek. Then you should have put my silver with the banker AND AT MY COMING I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take away the talent from him and give it to him who possess ten talents. For to everyone who possesses, more shall be given and he shall have overflowingly; but from  him who does not possess, even what he possesses shall be taken away. And throw the worthless servant out into the outer darkness — there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.‘ And when the Son of Adam comes in His esteem and all the set-apart messengers with Him, then He shall sit on the throne of His esteem. And ALL THE NATIONS SHALL BE GATHERED before Him and He shall SEPERATE THEM ONE FROM ANOTHER, as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats. And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the Sovereign shall say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the reign prepared for you from the foundation of the world — FOR I WAS HUNGRY, and YOU gave ME food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous shall answer Him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see You hungry and WE fed You, or thirsty and gave You to drink? When did we see You a stranger and took You in, or naked and clothed You? And when did we see You sick, or in prison and we came to You?’ And the Sovereign shall answer and say to them, ‘Truly, I say to you, in so far as you did it ton one of the least of these My brothers, you did it to Me.’ He shall then also say to those on the left hand, ‘Go away from Me, accursed ones, into the EVERLASTING FIRE PREPARED FOR THE devil and his messengers — for I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, was naked and you did not clothe Me, sich and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ Then they also shall answer Him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not serve You?’ Then He shall answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, in so far as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these shall go away into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT but the righteous into everlasting life.”

We can conclude above that those the Master is talking to are all DEAD! This is the first resurrection, which ONLY those at the end of the age can take part in. This is also why the five foolish virgins show up AFTER the 1,000 year reign of Yahusha on earth and try to get into ‘New Yerushalayim,” and are in the ‘outer darkness’ and cannot enter in the Kingdom. Those who do not help those who do NOT take the Mark of the Beast and those who do get their fair rewards respectively. Now let’s continue this research by looking at 1 Kepja (1 Peter) chapter 1.

3. Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master OWYFZ Messiah, who according to His great compassion has caused us to be born again to a living expectation through the resurrection of OWYFZ Messiah from the dead, to an INHERITANCE INCORRUPTIBLE and undefiled and unfading, having been KEPT IN THE HEAVENS FOR YOU, who are protected by the power of Elohim through belief, FOR A DELIVERANCE READY TO BE REVEALED IN THE LAST TIME, in which you exult, EVEN THOUGH FOR A LITTLE WHILE, if need be, YOU HAVE BEEN GRIEVED BY MANIFOLD TRIALS, IN ORDER THAT THE PROVING OF YOUR BELIEF — much more precious than gold that perishes and proven by FIRE — might be found to result in PRAISE and RESPECT and ESTEEM AT THE REVELATION of OWYFZ Messiah, whom having not seen, you love; in whom you exult with unspeakable and esteemed joy, yet not seeing, but believing, obtaining THE GOAL OF YOUR BELIEF: a deliverance of lives.”

Notice the “deliverance ready to be revealed in the last time.” The coming Mark of the Beast will cause true Believers in Yahusha to refuse to take it, thus making them susceptible to hunger, thirst, nakedness, incarceration, and homelessness. Thus, those who are still alive will be delivered by Messiah. Look at Yeshayahu (Isaiah) chapter 9:

5. For every boot of one trampling in tumult and coat rolled in blood, shall be used for BURNING AND FUEL FOR FIRE. For a Child shall be born unto us, a Son shall be given unto us and the RULE IS ON His shoulder. Counsellor, Strong El, Father of Continuity, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His RULE AND PEACE there is not end, upon the throne of Dawid and over His reign, to establish it and sustain it with right-ruling and with righteousness from now on, even forever…And the people have not turned back to Him who smites them nor have they sought YHWH of hosts. And YHWH cuts off head and tail from Yisra’el, palm branch and reed IN ONE DAY. Elder and highly respected, he is the head; THE PROPHET WHO TEACHES FALSEHOOD, he is the tail. For THE LEADERS OF THIS PEOPLE LEAD THEM ASTRAY…For wrongness BURNS AS THE FIRE; it CONSUMES THORNBUSHES AND WEEDS and sets the bushes of the forest ablaze and they roll up like rising smoke. The LAND SHALL BE BURNED UP BY THE WRATH of YHWH of hosts and the PEOPLE AS FUEL FOR THE FIRE. A man shall not spare his brother, and cut down on the right hand, but shall be hungry; and he devours on the left hand, but shall not be satisfied; each one devouring the FLESH OF HIS OWN ARM.

Notice the very same themes of hunger and wrath and fire from Matithyahu chapter 25 above. Let’s continue with 2 Kepha (2 Peter) 3:

1. …I stir up your sincere mind, to remember the words previously spoken by the set-apart prophets and of the command of the Master and Saviour, spoken by your emissaries, KNOWING THIS FIRST: that mockers shall come IN THE LAST DAYS with mocking, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the PROMISE OF His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all continues as from the beginning of creation.” For THEY CHOOSE TO HAVE THIS HIDDEN FROM THEM: that the heavens were of old and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by the Word of Elohim, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. AND THE PRESENT HEAVENS AND THE EARTH are treasured up by the same Word, BEING KEPT FOR FIRE, to A DAY OF JUDGMENT AND DESTRUCTION of wicked men. But, beloved ones, let NOT this one matter be hidden from you: that with YHWH one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. YHWH is NOT slow in regard to the promise, as some count slowness, but IS PATIENT towards US, not wishing that ANY should PERISH but that all should come to repentance. But THE DAY OF YHWH shall come as a thief in the night, in which THE HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH INTENSE HEAT AND THE EARTH AND THE WORKS THAT ARE IN IT SHALL BE BURNED UP. Seeing all these are TO BE DESTROYED IN THIS WAY, what kind of people ought you to be in set-apart ehaviour and reverence, looking for and hastening the COMING OF THE DAY of Elohim, through which THE HEAVENS SHALL BE DESTROYED, BEING SET ON FIRE AND THE ELEMENTS MELT WITH INTENSE HEAT! But according to His promise WE WAIT for a renewed heavens and a renewed earth in which righteousness dwells. So then, beloved ones, LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS, do your utmost to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, and reckon the patience of our Master as deliverance, as also Sha’ul wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him, as also in ALL HIS LETTERS, speaking in them CONCERNING THESE MATTTERS, in which some are HARD TO UNDERSTAND, which those who are untaught and unstable TWIST TO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION, AS THEY DO OTHER Scriptures.

 Notice that the scripture above accentuates other new and old covenant writers and scriptures thereof concerning YHWH judging the world with FIRE at the end of the age, afterwards the earth is RENEWED WITH FIRE. So, let’s take a look at what Sha’ul (Paul) wrote in Revelation 1:

1. Revelation of OWYFZ Messiah, which Elohim gave Him to show His servants WHAT HAS TO TAKE PLACE with speed (remember that a day is as a thousand years and that he wants to have patience with His set-apart ones, wanting ALL to come to repentance. It has only been about TWO DAYS [one day equals a thousand years] since Messiah died, in YHWH’s eyes)….Blessed is he who reads and those who HEAR THE WORDS OF THIS PROPHECY AND GUARD what is written in it, for the time is near. ..See, He is coming with the CLOUDS and EVERY EYE SHALL SEE Him, even they who pierced Him (remember that He comes to gather the nations together and separate them, which would be at the end of the 1,000 year reign of Yahusha Messiah, and all eyes will be upon Him. Many had mocked this believing that since those who had pierced Him had long ago died, therefore the scriptures were wrong. But Yahusha separates them according to their own doings, which sends them to where their eternal home will be). ..and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Adam, dressed in a robe down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. And His head and hair were white as white wool, as snow and His eyes as a flame of fire, and His feet like burnished brass, AS IF REFINED IN A FURNACE and His voice as the sound of many waters. And in His right hand He held seven stars and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword and His FACE WAS AS THE SUN SHINING IN ITS STRENGTH. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as DEAD and he placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid, I am the First and the Last, and the living One. And I became dead, and see, I am LIVING FOREVER AND EVER. Amen. And I posses the keys of the grave and of death…The secret of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are messengers of the seven assemblies and the seven lampstands which you saw are seven assemblies.”

As we can gain from other scripture, Messiah is the first fruits of the dead. The Two Witnesses who wear sackcloth will prophecy for a specific amount of time, then be killed, and on the third day rise from the dead and go up to heaven. Only AFTER the body has DIED and is DEAD, can it be transformed into the incorruptible and immortal, being able to live life everlasting. In the twinkling of an eye

Now I will start talking directly to those set-apart ones who love Yahusha through the following scriptures of what to expect from Messiah in the day ahead throughout the entire world, beginning in Revelation 2:

“To the messenger of the assembly of Ephesos write, ‘He who is holding the seven stars in His right hand, who is walking in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, says this: “I know your works and your labour and your endurance and that you are not able to bear evil ones and have tried those who say they are emissaries and are not and have found them false; and you have been bearing up and have endurance and have laboured for My Name’s sake and have not become weary. But I hold this against you, that you have left your first love. So remember from where you have fallen and repent and do the first works, or else I shall come to you speedily and REMOVE your lampstand from its place, UNLESS you repent.. Yet this you have, that you hate the works of the Nikolaites, which I also hate. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. TO HIM WHO OVERCOMES I shall give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of Elohim. And to the messenger of the assembly in Smurna write, ‘This says the First and the Last, who became dead, and came to life: I know your works and pressure and poverty — yet you are rich — and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yahudim and are not, but are a congregation of Satan. Do not be afraid of what YOU ARE ABOUT TO SUFFER. See, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, in order to try you and you shall have pressure ten days. Be trustworthy until death and I shall give you the crown of life.  He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes shall by no means be harmed by the SECOND DEATH. And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write, ‘He who has the sharp two-edged sword, says this: I know your works and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is. And you hold fast to My Name and did not deny the belief in Me, even in the day in which Antipas was My trustworthy witness, who was killed near you, where Satan dwells. But I hold a few matters against you, because you have there those who adhere to the teaching of Bil’am, who taught Balaq to put a stumbling-block before the children of Yisra’el, to eat food offered to idols and to commit whoring.. So you also have those who adhere to the teaching of the Nikolaites, which teaching I hate. Repent, or else I shall come to you speedily and FIGHT AGAINST THEM WITH THE SWORD OF My MOUTH. He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I shall give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I shall give him a white stone and on the stone a renewed Name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”‘And to the messenger of the assembly in Thyatira write, ‘This says the Son of Elohim, who has eyes like a FLAME OF FIRE and His FEET LIKE BURNISHED BRASS: I know your works and love and service and belief and your endurance. And as for your works, the last are more than the first. But I hold against you that you allow that woman Izebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and lead My servants astray to commit whoring and to eat food offered to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her whoring and she did not repent. See, I am throwing her into a sickbed and those who commit adultery with her into GREAT AFFLICTION, UNLESS they repent of their works. And I SHALL SLAY HER CHILDREN WITH DEATH. And ALL the assemblies shall know that I am the One searching the kidneys and hearts. And I shall give to each one of you ACCORDING TO YOUR WORKS. And to you I say and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not possess this teaching and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they call them, I am not putting on you another burden. But hold fast what you have until I come. And he who overcomes and guards My works UNTIL THE END, to him I shall give authority over the nations, and he shall shepherd them with a rod of iron, as the potter’s vessels shall be broken to pieces, as I also have received from My Father. And I shall give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies.”

Revelation 3:1 “And to the messenger of the assembly in Sardis write, ‘He who has the seven Spirits of Elohim and the seven stars, says this, “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but YOU ARE DEAD. Wake up and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I HAVE NOT FOUND YOUR WORKS COMPLETE BEFORE Elohim. Remember, then, how you have received and HEARD. And watch and repent. If, then, you do not WAKE UP, I shall come upon you as a thief and YOU SHALL NOT KNOW AT ALL what hour I come upon you. Nevertheless, you have a FEW names in Sardis who have not defiled their garments. And they shall walk with Me in white, because THEY ARE WORTHY. He who overcomes shall be dressed in white robes and I shall by no means blot out his name from the Book of life, but I shall confess his name before My Father and before His messengers. He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies, And to the messenger of the assembly in Philadelphia write, ‘He who is set-apart, He who is true, He who has the key of Dawid, He who opens and no one shuts and shuts and no one opens, says this: I know your works — see, I have set before you an open door, and no one is able to shut it — that you have little power, yet have guarded My word and have not denied My Name. See, I am giving up those of the congregation of Satan, who say they are Yahudim, and are not, but lie. See, I am making them come and worship before your feet and to KNOW THAT I HAVE LOVED YOU. Because you have guarded My Word of endurance, I also shall guard you from the hour of TRIAL WHICH SHALL COME UPON THE WORLD, TO TRY THOSE WHO DWELL ON THE EARTH. See, I am coming speedily! Hold what you have that no one take your crown. he who overcomes, I shall make him a supporting post in the Dwelling Place of My Elohim and he shall by no means go out. And I shall write on him the Name of My Elohim and the Name of the city of My Elohim, the renewed Yerushalayim, which comes down out of the heavens from My Elohim and My renewed Name. He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies. And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodikeia write, ‘The Amen, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, says this: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that were cold or hot. So, BECAUSE YOU ARE LUKEWARM and neither cold nor hot, I AM GOING TO VOMIT YOU OUT OF My Mouth. Because YOU SAY, ‘Rich I am and I am made rich and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched and pitiable and poor and blind and naked. I advise you to buy from Me gold REFINED IN THE FIRE, so that you become rich; and white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. AS MANY AS I LOVE, I REPROVE AND DISCIPLINE. So be ardent and repent. See, I stand at the door and knock. IF ANYONE HEARS My voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him and he with Me. to him who overcomes I shall give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies.'”‘

As one can plainly see from above, ONLY those who seek what YHWH wants and obeys the commandments of Yahusha by doing His desires, will any of us endure to the end.

Next we will see what is soon to transpire on earth starting in Revelation 6:

1. And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, like a sound of thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a white horse and he who sat on it holding a bow. And a crown was given to him and he went out overcoming and to overcome. And when He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” And another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was given to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that they should slay one another. And a great sword was given to him. And when He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a black horse and he who sat on it holding a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wage and three quarts of  barley for a day’s wage. And do not harm the oil and the wine.” And when He opened the fourth…And I looked and saw a pale horse. And he who sat on it had the Name Death and the grave followed with him. And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with hunger and with death and by the beasts of the earth. And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the alter the beings of those having been SLAIN FOR THE Word of Elohim and for the witness which they held, and they cried with a lud voice, saying, “How long, O Master, set-apart and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” and there was given to each one a white robe and they were told that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brothers, who would be KILLED AS THEY WERE, was completed. And I looked when He opened the sixth seal and saw a great earthquake came to be. And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood. And the stars of the heavens fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs, being shaken by a strong wind. And heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the sovereigns of the earth and the great ones and the rich ones and the commanders and the mighty and every slave and every free one,m HID THEMSELVES IN THE CAVES AND IN THE ROCKS OF THE MOUNTAINS, and SAID TO THE MOUNTAINS AND ROCKS, ” FALL ON US AND HIDE US FROM THE FACE OF Him sitting on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because THE GREAT DAY OF His WRATH HAS COME, AND WHO IS ABLE TO STAND?”

As we can observe from above, Yahusha’s wrath is so terrifying, the people of earth call to rocks that cannot hear to fall upon them to hide them from the Lamb’s wrath. Now let’s take even more time with Revelation starting in 19:

1. And after this I heard a loud voice of a great crowd in the heaven, saying, “Halleluyah! Deliverance and esteem and respect and power to YHWH our Elohim! Because true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great whore who corrupted the earth with her whoring. And He has avenged on her the BLOOD OF His SERVANTS SHED BY HER.” And a second time they said, “Halleluyah! And HER SMOKE RISES UP FOREVER AND EVER!: And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped Elohim who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Halleluyah!: And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our Elohim, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!” And I heard as the voice of a great crowd, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunders, saying, “Halleluyah, for YHWH El Shaddai reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him praise, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His wife prepared herself.” And to her it was given to be dressed in fine linen, clean and bright, FOR THE FINE LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESSES OF THE SET-APART ONES….And I saw the heavens opened and there was a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Trustworthy and True and in righteousness He judges and fights. And His eyes were as A FLAME OF FIRE and on His head were many crowns, having a Name that had been written, which no one had perceived except Himself — and having been dressed in a robe dipped in blood — and His Name is called: The Word of YHWH. And the armies in the heaven, dressed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. And AND OUT OF His MOUTH GOES A SHARP SWORD, that WITH IT He SHOULD SMITE THE NATIONS. And He shall shepherd them with a rod of iron. And He treads the winepress of the fierceness and WRATH of El Shaddai. And On His robe and on His thigh He has a Name written: SOVEREIGN OF SOVEREIGNS AND MASTER OF MASTERS. And I saw one messenger standing in the sun and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, “come and gather together for the supper of the great Elohim, to eat the flesh of sovereigns and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of strong ones and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them AND THE FLESH OF ALL PEOPLE, free and slave, both small and great.” I saw the beast and the sovereigns of the earth and their armies, gathered together to fight Him who sat on the  horse and His army. And the beast was seized and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he led astray those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. The two were THROWN ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE BURNING WITH SULPHUR. And the rest were KILLED with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

Now let’s turn to Yeshuyahu (Isaiah) 10:

16. Therefore the Master, YHWH of hosts, sends leanness among his fat ones. And under his esteem he kindles a burning like the burning of a fire. טז.
And the Light of Yisra’el shall be for a fire and his Set-apart One for a flame. And it shall burn and devour his weeds and his thornbushes in one day. יז.
and consume the esteem of his forest and of his fertile field, both life and flesh. And they shall be as when a sick man wastes away, יח.
and the remaining trees of his forest shall be so few in number that a child records them. יט.
And in that day it shall be that the remnant of Yisra’el and those who have escaped of the house of Ya’aqob, never again lean upon him who defeated them, but shall lean upon YHWH, the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, in truth.

His Set-apart one of Yisra’el is Yahusha, which is the Word of YHWH become flesh, the Light of the world. Notice that fields and life and flesh will be consumed by the burning and devouring of the fire. Now let’s continue in Yeshayahu with 11:

2.The Spirit of YHWH shall rest upon Him–the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YHWH, ב.
and shall make Him breath in the fear of YHWH. And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears. ג.
But with righteousness He shall judge the poor and shall decide with straightness for the meek ones of the earth and shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth and slay the wrong with the breath of His lips.

Notice He shall “slay the wrong with the breath of His lips.” Now notice that he shall SMITE THE EARTH WITH THE ROD OF HIS MOUTH.” This vindicates what Revelation and other scripture talk about concerning FIRE from Yahusha. But let’s talk about the set-apart ones of Yahusha in Yeshayahu 12:

1. And in that day you shall say, “I thank You YHWH, though You were enraged with me, Your displeasure has turned back and You have comforted me. א.
See, El is my deliverance, I trust and am not afraid. For Yah, YHWH, is my strength and my song and He has become my deliverance.” ב.
And you shall draw water with joy from the fountains of deliverance. ג.
And in that day you shall say, “Praise YHWH, call upon His Name; make known His deeds among the peoples, make mention that His Name is exalted. ד.
“Sing to YHWH, For He has done excellently; this is known in all the earth.

Looking at the above scripture, we can see that  people will be tested and experience YHWH’s displeasure and after the experience of Him being enraged at us, we praise Yah, telling His deeds and exalting YHWH’s Name.  Let’s continue with Yeshayahu 13 to read about more fire coming to earth and the future of the world very soon:

1. The message concerning Babel which Yeshayahu son of Amots saw.

א.

“Lift up a banner on the high mountain, raise your voice to them; wave your hand, let them enter the gates of the nobles.

ב.

“I have commanded My set-apart ones; I have also called My mighty men for My displeasure, My proudly exulting ones.”

ג.

The noise of an uproar in the mountains, like that of many people! A noise of uproar of the reigns of gentiles gathered together! YHWH of hosts is gathering an army for battle.

ד.

They are coming from a distant land, from the end of the heavens, even YHWH  and His weapons of displeasure, to destroy all the earth.

ה.

Howl, for the day of YHWH is near! It comes as a destruction from the Almighty.

ו.

Therefore, all hands shall go limp, every man’s heart melts.

ז.

And they shall be afraid. Pangs and sorrows take hold of them, they are in pain as a woman in labour; they are amazed at one another, their faces aflame!

ח.

See, the day of YHWH is coming, fierce, with wrath and heat of displeasure, to lay the earth waste and destroy its sinners from it.

ט.

For the stars of the heavens and their constellations do not give off their light. The sun shall be dark at its rising and the moon not send out its light.

י.

“And I shall punish the world for its evil and the wrong for their crookedness and shall put an end to the arrogance of the proud and lay low the pride of the ruthless.

יא.

I shall make mortal man scarcer than fine gold and mankind scarcer than the gold of Ophir.

יב.

“So I shall make the heavens tremble and the earth shall shake from her place, in the wrath of YHWH of hosts and in the day of the heat of His displeasure.

יג.

“And it shall be as the hunted gazelle and as a sheep that no man takes up–every man turns to his own people and everyone flees to his own people and everyone flees to his own land.

יד.

Whoever is found is thrust through, and everyone taken falls by the sword.

טו.

“And their children are dashed to pieces before their eyes, their houses plundered and their wives ravished.

טז.

See, I am stirring up the Medes against them, who do not regard silver and as for gold, they do not delight in it.

יז.

“And bows dash the young to pieces and they have no compassion on the fruit of the womb, their eye spare no children.

Notice again the same themes with Revelation about destruction and war. There is a “gathering” of “an army for battle, with YHWH and His weapons of displeasure, TO DESTROY THE EARTH! The day of YHWH IS to DESTROY ALL THE EARTH! This is why every mans’ heart melts and all hands go limp and they realize they are DOOMED. Notice also it says “in the day of the HEAT of His displeasure” to “LAY WASTE THE EARTH and DESTROY ITS sinners FROM IT. Now let’s go to Yeshayahu 25:

1. See YHWH is making the earth empty and making it waste and shall overturn its surface and shall scatter abroad its inhabitants. א.
And it shall be–as with the people so with the priest, as with the servant so with the master. as with female servant so with her mistress, as with the buyer so with the seller, as with the lender so with the borrower, as with the creditor so with the debtor; ב.
the earth is completely emptied and utterly plundered, for YHWH has spoken this word. ג.
The earth shall mourn and wither, the world shall languish and wither, the haughty people of the earth shall languish. ד.
For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Torot, changed the law, broken the everlasting covenant. ה.
Therefore a curse shall consume the earth and those who dwell in it be punished. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth shall be burned and few men shall be left. ו.
The new wine shall fail, the vine shall languish, all those glad at heart shall sigh. ז.
The joy of the tambourine shall cease, the noise of those who rejoice shall end, the joy of the lyre shall cease. ח.
No more do they drink wine with a song, strong drink is bitter to those who drink it. ט.
The deserted city shall be broken down, every house shall be shut, no one enters. י.
There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy shall be darkened, the gladness of the earth shall be gone. יא.
The city is left to ruins and the gate is stricken with destruction. יב.
For thus it is to be in the midst of the earth among the peoples, like the shaking of an olive tree, like the gleaning grapes when the grape harvest is done. יג.
They lift up their voice, they sing of the excellency of YHWH, they shall cry aloud from the sea. יד.
Therefore praise YHWH in the east, the Name of YHWH Elohim of Yisra’el in the coastlands of the sea. טו.
From the ends of the earth we shall hear songs, “Splendour to the righteous One!” But I say, “I waste away, I waste away! Woe to me! The treacherous betray, with treachery the treacherous betray.” טז.
Fear and the pit and the snare are upon you, O inhabitant or the earth. יז.
And it shall be that he who flees from the noise of the fear falls into the pit and he who comes up from the midst of the pit is caught in the snare. For the windows from on high shall be opened and the foundations of the earth be shaken. יח.
The earth shall be utterly broken, the earth shall be completely shattered, the earth shall be fiercely shaken. יט.
The earth shall stagger like a drunkard. And it shall totter like a hut and its transgression shall be heavy upon it and it shall fall and not rise again. כ.
And in that day shall be that YHWH punishes on high the host of exalted ones and on the earth the sovereigns of the earth. כא.
And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit and shall be shut up in the prison and be punished after many days. כב.
And the moon shall blush and the sun shall be ashamed, for YHWH of hosts shall reign on Mount Tsiyon and in Yerushalayim, and before His elders, in esteem!
25) 1. O YHWH You are my Elohim. I exalt You, I praise Your Name, for You shall do a wonder–counsels of long ago, trustworthiness, truth. א.
For You shall make a city a heap, a walled city a ruin, a palace of foreigners to be a city no more–never to be rebuilt. ב.
Therefore a strong people praise You, the city of the ruthless nations fear You. ג.
For You shall be a refuge to the poor, a refuge to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm, a shade from the heat. For the spirit of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall. ד.
You subdue the noise of foreigners, as heat in a dry place; as heat in the shadow of a cloud, the singing of the ruthless is subdued. ה.
And in this mountain YHWH of hosts shall make for all people a feast of choice pieces, a feast of old wines, of choice pieces with marrow, of old wines, well refined. ו.
And He shall swallow up on this mountain the surface of the covering which covers all people and the veil which is spread over all nations. ז.
He shall swallow up death forever and the Master YHWH shall wipe away tears from all faces and take away the reproach of His people from all the earth. For YHWH has spoken. ח.
And it shall be said in that day, “See, this is our Elohim. We have waited for Him and He saves us. This is YHWH, we have waited for Him, let us be glad and rejoice in His deliverance.”

Notice the language of YHWH “making the earth empty and making it waste,” overturning “its SURFACE” and therefore “a curse” will consume “the earth AND THOSE who dwell in it” so that “THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BURNED AND FEW MEN SHALL BE LEFT.” The “EARTH SHALL BE UTTERLY BROKEN and “COMPLETELY SHATTERED and “FIERCELY SHAKEN.” Now let’s again go to Yeshayahu chapter 27:

4. “Wrath is not in Me. Who would set thornbushes and weeds against Me in battle? I would go through them, I WOULD BURN THEM TOGETHER.”

Now I want you to play close attention to those that draw near to YHWH with their lips, and how YHWH has closed the understanding of the minds of the prophets and seers at the end of this age in Yeshuyahu 29:

5. “But the crowd of those strange to you shall be like fine dust and the crowd of the ruthless ones as chaff blowing away. And it shall be in an instant, suddenly!” ה.
You shall be visited by YHWH of hosts with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and storm and flame of devouring fire. ו.
Then the crowd of all the gentiles who fight against Ari’el, even all who fight against her and her stronghold and distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. ז.
And it shall be as when a hungry man dreams and see, he eats; but he awakes and his being is empty; or as when a thirsty man dreams and see, he drinks; but he awakes and see, he is faint and his being is longing. Thus shall the crowd of all the gentiles be who fight against Mount Tsiyon. ח.
Pause and wonder! blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunk, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. ט.
For YHWH has poured out on you the spirit of deep sleep and has closed your eyes, the prophets. And He covered your heads, the seers. י.
And the entire vision is to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men give to one who knows books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I am unable, for it is sealed. יא.
And the book is given to one does not know books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I have not known books.” יב.
And YHWH says, “Because this people has drawn near with its mouth and with its lips they have esteemed Me and it has kept its heart far from Me and their fear of Me has become a command of men that is taught! יג.
“Therefore, see, I am again doing a marvellous work among this people, a marvellous work and a wonder. And the wisdom of their wise men shall perish and the understanding of their clever men shall be hidden.” יד.
Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from YHWH and their works are in the dark: they say, Who sees us?” and “Who knows us?” טו.
How perverse of you! Should the potter be reckoned as the clay? Should what is made say of its Maker, “He did not make me?” And what is formed say of Him who formed it, “He did not understand?” טז.
Is it not yet a little while and Lebanon shall be turned into garden land and garden land be reckoned as a forest? יז.
And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of gloom and out of darkness. יח.
And the meek ones shall increase their joy in YHWH and the poor  among men rejoice in the Set-apart One of Yisra’el. יט.
For the ruthless one is brought to naught, the scorner is consumed and all who watch for evil shall be cut off, כ.
those who make a man to sin in word and lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate and turn aside the righteous with empty reasoning.

Next we turn again to the theme of FIRE in Yeshayahu 30:

27. See, the Name of YHWH is coming from afar, burning with His wrath and heavy smoke. His lips shall be filled with rage and His tongue be as a devouring fire; כז.
and His breath shall be as an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with a sieve of falsehood and a misleading bridle on the jaws of the peoples. כח.
Let the song be to you as in a night set-apart for a festival and gladness of heart as he who is going with a flute, to come into the mountain of YHWH, to the Rock of Yisra’el. כט.
And YHWH shall cause His excellent voice to be heard and show the coming down of His arm, with raging wrath and the flame of a consuming fire, with scattering, downpour and hailstones. ל.
For through the voice of YHWH Ashshur is broken down, with a rod He smites. לא.
And every passage of the ordained staff which YHWH lays on him, shall be with tambourines and lyres, when He shall fight with it, battling with a brandishing arm. לב.
For Topheth was ordained of old, even for the sovereign it has been prepared. He has made it deep and large, its fire pit with much wood; the breath of YHWH, as a stream of burning sulphur, is burning in it!

Next we turn to Yeshayahu chapter 33 to see more burning with “everlasting burnings,” with even the brave people crying and others weeping bitterly, with the highways becoming  deserted:

See, the brave ones shall cry outside, the messengers of peace weep bitterly. ז.
The highways shall be deserted, the wayfaring man shall have ceased. He has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he respected no man. ח.
The earth shall mourn and languish. Lebanon shall be ashamed. Sharon shall be withered like a desert and Bashan and Karmel be shaking. ט.
Now I rise up,” declares YHWH. “Now I am exalted, now I am lifted up. י.
“You conceive chaff, you bring forth stubble, your spirit devours you like fire. יא.
And peoples shall be like the burnings of lime, like thorns cut up they are burned in the fire. יב.
“You who are afar off, hear what I shall do; and you who are near, know My might.” יג.
Sinners in Tsiyon shall be afraid; trembling shall grip the defiled ones, “Who of us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who of us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”

Next we turn to Yeshayahu 28 to find out what has been decreed upon ALL the earth:

22. And now, do not be scoffers, lest your bonds be made strong. For I have heard from the Master YHWH of hosts, a destruction decreed upon all the earth.

Now I want to turn to the issue of the Gentiles who obey not Yahusha, where smoke goes up “forever and ever” in Yeshayahu 34:

1. Come near you gentiles, to hear. And listen, you people! Let the earth hear and all that is in it, the world and all its offspring. א.
For the displeasure of YHWH is against all the gentiles, and His wrath against all their divisions. He shall put them under the ban, He shall give them over to the slaughter,   ב.
and their slain be thrown out and their stench rise from their corpses. And mountains shall be melted with their blood. ג.
And all the host of the heavens shall rot away. And the heavens shall be rolled up like a scroll and all their host fade like a leaf fading on the vine and like the fading one of a fig tree. ד.
“For My sword shall be drenched in the heavens. Look, it comes down on Edom and on the people of My curse, for judgment. ה.
“The sword of YHWH shall be filled with blood, it shall be made overflowing with fatness and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams. For YHWH has a slaughtering in Botsrah and a great slaughter in the land of Edom. ו.
“And wild oxen shall come down with them and young bulls with bulls. And their land shall be drenched with blood and their dust made fat with fatness.” ז.
For it is the day of the vengeance of YHWH, the year of recompense for the cause of Tsiyon. ח.
And its streams shall be turned into tar and its dust into sulphur and its land shall become burning tar, ט.
that is not quenched night or day, its smoke going up forever. From generation to generation it lies waste, no one passes through it forever and ever,

Next we read Yeshayahu chapter 60:

12. “For the nation and the reign that do not serve you shall perish and those gentiles shall be utterly laid waste.

Next we turn to Yeshayahu 64 for more themes of fire from YHWH, and also something hidden “since the beginning of the ages”:

1. Oh that You would tear the heavens open, come down, that mountains shall shake before Your ?–

as when fire burns twigs, as firemakes water boil–to make Your Name known to Your adversaries, so that nations tremble before You.

When You did awesome matters, which we did not expect, You came down, mountains did shake before You!

Since the beginning of the ages they have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any Elohim besides You, who acts for those who wait for Him.

And there is more fire, this time fire which shall “not be quenched” in Yeshayahu 66:

14. “And you shall see and your heart shall rejoice and your bones flourish as tender grass. And the hand of YHWH shall be known to His servants and His displeasure to His enemies.

For look, YHWH comes with fire and with His chariots, like a whirlwind, to render His displeasure with burning and His rebuke with flames of fire.

For by fire and by His sword YHWH shall judge all flesh and the slain of YHWH shall be many

“those who set themselves apart and cleanse themselves at the gardens after ‘One’ in the midst, eating flesh of pigs and the abomination and the mouse, are snatched away, together,” declares YHWH.

“And I, because of their works and their imaginations, am coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My esteem.

“And I shall set a sign among them and shall send some of those who escape to the nations–Tarshish and Pul and Lud, who drew the bow and Tubal and Yawan, the coastlands afar off who have not heard My report nor seen My esteem. And they shall declare My esteem among the gentiles.

“And they shall bring all your brothers as an offering to YHWH out of all the gentiles, on horses and in chariots and in litters, on mules and on camels, to My set-apart mountain Yerushalayim,” declares YHWH, “as the children of Yisra’el bring an offering in a clean vessel into the House of YHWH.

“And from them too I shall take for priests–for Lewites,” declares YHWH.

“For as the new heavens and the new earth that I make stand before Me,declares YHWH, “so your seed and your name shall stand.

“And it shall be that from New Moon to New Moon and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” declares YHWH.

“And they shall go forth and look upon the corpses of the men who have transgressed against Me. For their worm shall not die and their fire not be quenched. And they shall be repulsive to all flesh!”

Here are more scripture references to YHWH and judgment and FIRE:

2 Kepha 2:1 But there also came to be false prophets among the people, as also among you there SHALL be false teachers, who shall secretly bring in destructive heresies and deny the Master who bought them, BRINGING SWIFT DESTRUCTION ON THEMSELVES. AND MANY SHALL FOLLOW THEIR DESTRUCTIVE WAYS, because of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, and IN GREED, with FABRICATED WORDS, THEY SHALL USE YOU FOR GAIN. From of old THEIR JUDGMENT DOES NOT LINGER and their DESTRUCTION does not slumber. For if Elohim did not spare the messengers who sinned, but sent them to Tartaros and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be kept for JUDGMENT, and did not spare the world of old, but preserved Noah, a proclaimer of righteousness and seven others, bringing in the flood on the world of the wicked, and having REDUCED TO ASHES the cities of Sedom and Amorah condemned them to DESTRUCTION — having MADE THEM AN EXAMPLE TO THOSE AFTERWARD would live wickedly, and rescued righteous Lot, who was oppressed with the indecent behaviour of the lawless f…then YHWH knows how to rescue the reverent ones from trial and to  keep the unrighteous unto the DAY OF JUDGMENT, to be PUNISHED, and most of all those walking after the flesh in filthy lust and despising authority — bold, headstrong, speaking evil of esteemed ones, whereas messengers who are greater in strength and power do not bring a slanderous accusation against them before the Master. But these, like natural unreasoning beasts, having been born to be caught and DESTROYED, blaspheme that which they do not know, shall be DESTROYED in their DESTRUCTION

Revelation 8:3 And another messenger came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer and much incense was given to him, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the set-apart ones upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the PRAYERS OF THE SET-APART ONES, went up before Elohim from the hand of the messenger. And the messenger took the sensor and FILLED IT WITH FIRE from the altar and THREW IT TO EARTH…And the first messenger sounded and there came to be hail and FIRE MIXED WITH BLOOD  and THEY WERE THROWN TO THE EARTH. And a third of the trees were BURNED UP and AND ALL GREEN GRASS WAS BURNT UP. And the second messenger sounded and what looked like a great mountain BURNING WITH FIRE was thrown into the sea and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the living creatures in the sea died and a third of the ships were destroyed. And the third messenger sounded and a great star fell from the heaven, BURNING LIKE A TORCH and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water…

Ibrim (Hebrews) 12:25 TAke heed NOT TO REFUSE the One speaking. For if those did not escape who refused the warning on earth, MUCH LESS WE who turn away from Him from heaven, whose voice shook the earth then, but now He has PROMISED, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, BUT ALSO THE HEAVENS.” And this, “Yet once more,” makes clear the REMOVAL OF WHAT IS SHAKEN — as having been made — so that the unshaken matter might remain. Therefore, receiving an unshakeable reign, let us hold the favour, through which we serve Elohim pleasingly with reverence and awe, for indeed, our Elohim IS A CONSUMING FIRE.

Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 9:23 …And the ESTEEM of YHWH appeared to all the people, and FIRE CAME OUT FROM BEFORE YHWH AND CONSUMED the burnt offering and the fat on the altar…And Nadab and Abihu…each took his fire holder and put fire in it and put incense on it and brought strange fire before YHWH, which He had NOT commanded them. And FIRE CAME OUT FROM YHWH AND CONSUMED THEM and they died before YHWH.

Debarim (Deuteronomy) 4:24 For YHWH your Elohim is a CONSUMING FIRE, a jealous El.

2 Thessalonians 1:5 …clear evidence of the righteous judgment of Elohim. In order for you to be counted worthy of the reign of Elohim, for which you also suffer, since Elohim shall rightly REPAY WITH AFFLICTION those who afflict you, and to give you who are afflicted rest with us when the Master OWYFZ is revealed from heaven with His mighty messengers, IN FLAMING FIRE TAKING VENGEANCE on those who do not obey the Besorah of our Master OWYFZ Messiah, who shall be PUNISHED WITH EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION from the PRESENCE OF THE Master and from the ESTEEM OF His STRENGTH, when He comes to BE ESTEEMED in His set-apart ones and to be admired among all those who believe in that Day

The U.S. Roll in the Holocaust of the Jews; What Did She Know, When Did She Know it, Its Roll W/ the MS St Louis, Its History of Antisemitism and Its Future With Barack Hussein Obama in the Lead

Let’s make sure we can understand history correctly. Martin Luther said many horrible things about Jews, which Hitler used against the Jews, and with the help of the Catholic Church, and the silence or even open hostility of most so-called “Christians” in the entire world, the world allowed Hitler and his allies to almost annihilate an entire race on a continent, thereby causing the rise of World War Two with an estimated up to 72 MILLION killed, 61 million on the Allies side, 11 million on the Axis side.

And also let their be absolutely, unequivocally and unmistakably no ambiguity around the perfect FACT that Yahuah sent His Son as a Jew to save the Jews FIRST, then sent Saul, who Yahusha renamed Paul, to give the good news (gospels can be good or send people to the eternal pain of the Lake of Fire) of redemption through the shed sacrifice of a perfect human being on a tree to become a curse through his shed blood, rising from the dead after three days, and after being seen by men for many days, he ascended to heaven in a cloud to receive His glory and sit down at the Right Hand of the Father to be sent down one day to annihilate the anti-Messiah’s army of 200,000,000 and set up His Kingdom for 1,000 years as Satan is locked away and peace and justice reign supreme on Earth, like Messiah said He would.

Now we can get into the exact language YHWH used in connection with the promise he made to Abraham, whom Elohim renamed Israel, as it pertains to the blessings and curses of the Gentiles (all who are not Hebrew are Gentiles) by YHWH.

Genesis 12: 1 And YHWH said to Abram, “Go yourself out of your land, from your relatives and from your father’s house, to a land which I show you. 2 “And I shall make you a great nation and bless you and make your name great and you shall be a blessing. 3 And I shall bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you. And in you all the clans of the earth shall be blessed.”

This was none other than the beginning of the First Covenant, since afterwards it was Abraham that was willing to sacrifice his only child of Sarah’s and his son, Isaac, as YHWH had instructed him to do, and was stopped by YHWH before he could slay the boy, making a covenant with him and his offspring that would creat the state of Yisra’el (Israel) and eventually the New Covenant that would bless the entire world through the redemptive power of Yahusha the Hebrew Messiah, who would welcome the repentant Gentiles to share in the kingdom and glory to come.

The scriptures prophecy of the Israel at the end of the age, which has come to pass since 1948, after Hitler tried to exterminate them. The Jews DO have a homeland promised to them by YHWH, of which no other nation can claim now or in the past

Now let’s move to accurate testimony about Gentile Believers in Yahusha Messiah, and just what kind of role they play in YHWH’s promises to Israel and Yerushalem (Jerusalem).

Romans 11:1 I say then, has Elohim rejected His people? Let it not be! For I also am a Yisraelite, of the seed of Abrahim, of the tribe of Binyamin. 2 Elohim has not rejected His people whom he knew beforehand. 11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Let it not Be! But by their fall deliverance has come to the gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. 12 And if their fall is riches for the world and their failure riches for the gentiles, how much mor their completeness! 13 For I speak to you the gentiles, inasmuch as I am an emissary to the gentiles…” 16 Now if the first=fruit is set=apart, the lump is also. And if the root is set-apart, so are the branches. 17 And if some fo 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, 18 do not boast against the branches. And if you boast, remember; you do not bear the root, but the root bears you!…20…By unbelief they were broken off and you stand be belief. Do not be arrogant, but fear. 21 For if Elohim did not spare the natural branches, He might not spare you either. 22 See the kindness and 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. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, shall be grafted in, for Elohim is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more shall these who are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25 For I do not wish you to be ignorant of this secret, brothers, lest you should be wise in you own estimation, that hardening in part has come over Yisra’el, UNTIL THE COMPLETENESS OF THE GENTILES HAS COME IN. 26 And so ALL YISRA’EL SHALL BE SAVED, as it has been written, “The Deliverer shall come out of Tsiyon and He shall turn away wickedness from Ya’cob, and this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins. Truly, as regards the Besorah they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the choice THEY ARE BELOVED FOR THE SAKE OF THE FATHERS. 29 For THE GIFTS AND THE CALLING OF Elohim are NOT TO BE REPENTED OF.”

So as we can see in the above scripture, Elohim has promised Israel their land and a Deliverer, and those who bless the Jews will be blessed and those who curse them will be cursed. Now we can retrace the events and attitudes of America before World War Two to see if America was blessed or cursed, or maybe cursed, then blessed.

  1. 1923-1924 — Hitler writes his autobiography, Mein Kampf, German for “My Struggle,” while in prison after the November 1923 failed “Beer Hall Putsch.” In it, Hitler explains his beliefs and plans for the future of the German nation. He describes the “Aryan” race, by eliminating all inferior and undesirable peoples, of which in particular he focuses on the “source of all evil” – the Jews.

It is from Gonzalo Montt Rivas, the Chilean consul in Prague, Czechoslovakia, to his superiors in Santiago, Chile. In it, Rivas informs Santiago of a German decree revoking the citizenship and forfeiting the property of German Jews living outside Germany. Rivas also ominously states — “The German triumph (in the war) will leave Europe freed of Semites.”

  29. August 8, 1942 — Gerhart Riegner informs U.S. consulate in Geneva about a Nazi plan to murder all the Jews of Europe.
  1. Until recently [July 2001], this was believed by most historians to be the date the United States first obtained “reliable” intelligence of mass exterminations of Jews by the Nazis. But, see March 20, 1942 for possible earlier date.
  • August 11, 1942 — U.S. Legation in Switzerland passes information received from Gerhart Riegner to U.S. State Department regarding Nazi plan to kill all European Jews. The U.S. State Department decides the information passed on by Riegner is nothing more than a “fantastic” war rumor, and do not pass the information on to American Jewish leaders.
  • August 21, 1942 — President Roosevelt warns Axis powers that the perpetrators of war crimes would be tried after their defeat and face “fearful retribution.”
  • August 28, 1942 — After receiving details of Gerhart Reigner’s report regarding the Nazi plan to annihilate European Jews, a British politician cables the information to American Rabbi Stephen Wise.
  • September 2, 1942 — Rabbi Stephen Wise contacts U.S. State Department about Nazi plan to kill all European Jews. Wise agrees to remain silent until the information is confirmed. This ‘confirmation’ takes nearly 3 months.
  • November 24, 1942 — U.S. State Department confirms the existence of Nazi extermination camps and the murder of two million Jews to date. Rabbi Stephen Wise holds press conference to announce that the Nazis were deporting Jews throughout German-occupied territory to Poland for mass slaughter. The news makes little impact as the next day’s New York Times reported this news on its tenth page. Throughout the rest of the war, the N.Y. Times and most other newspapers failed to give prominent and extensive coverage to the Holocaust.
  • December 8, 1942 — Jewish leaders meet with President Roosevelt and hand him a 20-page summary of the Holocaust.
  • December 17, 1942 — The Allies issue a statement condemning “in the strongest possible terms this bestial policy of cold-blooded extermination.”
  • January, 1943 — U.S. State Department receives information from Switzerland that discloses that 6,000 Jews a day are being killed at one location in Poland.
  • February 10, 1943 — U.S. State Department asks legation in Switzerland to discontinue sending reports about the mass murder of Jews to private persons in the U.S.
  • April 12, 1943 — The 12-day Bermuda Conference opens. The conference grew out of concerns in Britain about reports that the Nazis were slaughtering Europe’s Jews. The U.S. agreed to hold a closed-door conference with Britain to discuss the issue. But American delegates arrived with secret directives from the U.S. State Department to accomplish little. The delegates to the conference developed almost no concrete proposals. Perhaps because of this they decided to keep their report secret.
  • July, 1943 — Jan Karski, a courier for the Polish resistance, meets with FDR, giving him an eyewitness account of the Holocaust.
  • August, 1943 — A report received by Jewish leaders in the U.S. advises that the death toll of European Jews has reached four million.
  • September, 1943 — A bill is introduced to allow refugees who won’t endanger public safety to be allowed to enter the U.S. temporarily. The bill dies in office.
  • October 6, 1943 — 400 Orthodox rabbis march on Washington from the Capitol to the White House. The President refuses to see them. However, as a result, public hearings on rescue in the House and Senate are held.
  • January 13, 1944 — “Report to the Secretary on the Acquiescence of This Government in the Murder of the Jews” is received by U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau Jr. Earlier, U.S. Treasury Department officials, working on projects to provide aid to European Jews, discovered that their colleagues in the U.S. State Department were actually undermining rescue efforts. They brought their concerns to Morgenthau, who was Jewish and a long-time supporter of Roosevelt. Morgenthau directed the preparation of this report, presented it to FDR and requested that he establish a rescue agency.
  • January 22, 1944 — January 22, 1944, The president issued Executive Order 9417, creating the War Refugee Board [WRB]. Estimates indicate that the WRB may have saved as many as 200,000 Jews. One can only speculate how many more might have been saved had the WRB been established in August 1942, when Gerhart Riegner’s message reached the United States.
  • April, 1944 — Two escapees from Auschwitz, Rudolph Verba and Alfred Wetzler, provide Jewish underground in Slovakia with full description of the death camp.
  • May 16, 1944 — Rabbi Weissmandl sends out pleas to bomb camp and rail lines — based on his “Auschwitz Protocol” — a 31 page report from the eyewitness accounts of Rudolph Verba and Alfred Wetzler.
  • May 31, 1944 — Aerial reconnaissance photograph taken of the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, by the U.S. Army Air Force’s 8th Division. The U.S. had aerial reconnaissance photos of Auschwitz as early as April 4, 1944. Go here for more information.

  • 1946 — After more than 200 days of proceedings, the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal concludes. Death sentences given to Goering, Ribbentrop, Streicher, Hans Frank and seven other Nazis.

As you can see by the information contained in numbers , the United States of America saw, heard, and had ample evidence of what the Jews of Europe were facing, turned our back on the Jews from the MA St Louis which later resulted in the death of many of them, and allowed antisemitism to flourish, which finally resulted in World War Two. Is Barack Obama going to bless Israel and the U.S., or harm Israel and cause curses including war, famine, death and disease to ravish america?

Remember, it wasn’t until the Allies, including America, defeated Nazi Germany that they saw blessings of victory with new weapons that caused Japan to surrender, ending the War and bringing relative peace to the planet for the last 60+ years. But there were moments of war, so where did America stand with Israel during these times?

First let’s take a look at numbers 3 and 4 to see that Jews in Germany were stripped of civil service and then lost their citizenship and were thoroughly discriminated against in 1933 and 1935 respectively. Then we can see in Jan. of 1939 Time Magazine named Hitler ‘Man of the Year’ and praised him, then in 1939 the U.S. rejected Jews from the ship MA St Louis. September 1939 marks the beginning of World War Two with the invasion of Poland by Germany, and in July of 1941 America learns of massacres of Jewish civilians by Nazi’s in Europe. America enters the War via an attack by Japan on Dec. 7, 1941. By this time, Hitler had indeed become very powerful.

As a matter of historical record, the United States, though timid, indifferent, cold and even semi-hostile at times against Zionism, which is the belief that Jews should live in the homeland Yahuah gave them thousands of years ago, and against Israel itself and Jews in general, has remained the strongest ally of Israel from the start of that nation until this day, though Barack Obama may change this soon…

In the United Nations, the U.S. didn’t even cast its first veto until 1972, and that was on a Syrian-Lebanese complaint against Israel. In fact, from 1967-72, the U.S. supported or abstained on 24 resolutions, most critical of Israel. And from 1973-2000, the Security Council adopted about 90 resolutions on the Middle East, with most of them also critical of Israel. The U.S. vetoed a total of 33 resolutions and, thereby supported the Council’s criticism of Israel by its vote of support or by abstaining about two-thirds of the time. Since its inception, the UN has been generally hostile to Israel with the US often her sole defender. Israel returns the friendship by voting solidly with the US on virtually all issues.

The U.S. was first to recognize Israel, only minutes after it was officially created in 1948, which was consistent with a 1922 Congressional resolution backing the League of Nations mandate for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. In the 6-Day 1967 War, the U.S. through its State Department said it was “neutral in thought, word and deed” about the conflict, with Johnson imposing an arms embargo on the region. So, what happened in 1968 after a string of victories by the U.S. in Vietnam in 1967? The Tet Offensive, which changed with antisemitic Walter Cronkite reporting that the war was unwinnable, changing public support for the War effort into a huge negative complete with the Weather Underground terrorist group declaring war on America, along with massive civil unrest and upheavals all across the country. The Philippines, which had given the U.S. a 99-year lease on designated military, naval, and air bases, was reduced to 25 years beginning 1967. Remember that Israel defeated a radical Arab, pro-Soviet offensive, which threatened to bring about the collapse of pro-American Arab regimes and disrupt oil supply, thus severely undermining U.S. standard of living.

Remember also that the U.S. gained valuable military information from analysis of captured Soviet equipment, including SAM-2, SAM-12, Mig-21 aircraft, and Soviet T-54 battle tanks, with Israel giving a squadron of MiG-21s to the U.S. and used for Air and Naval forces for training purposes.

Just as a side note, since 1967, Israel has transferred captured Soviet weapons systems to the U.S. Pentagon after every conflict: 1967, 1967-70, 1973, 1982, 1990 (Scud remnants from the Gulf War), and 2006 (remnants of Iranian supplied missiles). In 1982, Israel destroyed Soviet anti-aircraft batteries in Lebanon that were considered immune to American weapons, with Israel sharing the operation’s lessons to the U.S., estimated to be worth billions of dollars.

And General George Keegan, former head of U.S. Air Force Intelligence, publicly declared that “Israel is worth five CIA’s,” and further stated that between 1974 and 1990, Israel received $18.3 billion in U.S. military grants, but during the same period Israel provided the U.S. with $50-80 billion in intelligence, research and development savings, and Soviet weapons systems captured and transferred to the U.S.

Also, during the 1967-1970 1000 Day War of Attrition, the IDF, armed with American aircraft successfully defeated a Soviet-supplied air defense system, revealing deficiencies in Soviet air-defense doctrine to US defense planners, with Israel also sharing captured military equipment including P-2 radar and Soviet tanks.

The Yom Kippur War of 1973 saw the U.S. finally come to the rescue of Israel: “The President has agreed — and let me repeat this formally – that all your aircraft and tank losses will be replaced,” U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told the Israelis on Oct. 9, 1973. The U.S. decision allowed Israel to send hundreds of additional tanks and planes into battle that were being saved in case of future losses.

So what happened in 1973? The Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam), and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of South Vietnam (Viet Cong) sign a peace agreement in Paris, France, ending the longest U.S. war & military draft. Following President Richard Nixon’s visit to China, the U.S. and the People’s Republic of China agree to establish liaison offices, and U.S. – Sino relations begin to shift as the U.S. would now use China as a semi-ally against the U.S.S.R., giving the U.S. a permanent wedge against Moscow.

Also, Egypt and Israel sign a U.S.-sponsored cease-fire accord, which would allow Egypt to be a partner for peace, which also would be used as a wedge against other more hostile Arab states, giving the U.S. another tactical advantage in U.S./U.S.S.R. relations. U.S. President Richard Nixon begins several talks with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev, paving the way for somewhat better relations with Moscow.

And in 1973, because of U.S. re-supply, Israel defeated Soviet-trained and equipped Egyptian and Syrian forces and shared that captured Soviet equipment, including T-62 battle tanks, with the U.S. Israel and emerged as the only reliable ally where U.S. troops could land, equipment can be pre-positioned, and where the U.S. has friendly port facilities (in Haifa and Ashdod) in the entire Middle East region, saving the U.S. billions of dollars.

Finally, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, US & USSR meet in Geneva, with relative peace from this time in the Middle East until the Gulf War in 1991.

Although the U.S. was the first to recognize Israel, America denied her the right to defend herself somewhat by going along with other nations to deny them weapon sales through the embargo of the 1949 Tripartite Agreement on weapons, even though the US sold hundreds of millions of dollars in weaponry to Arab states during the 1950s and early 1960s. It wasn’t until 1962, when the U.S. agreed to sell to Israel its first significant American system, the HAWK anti-aircraft missile, that America started to back Israel in a big way, and she took off from the Cuban Missile Crisis to become an even greater nation that stopped the Soviet Union from swallowing the world in Communism.

As a direct result of the Yom Kippur War, the U.S. quadrupled its foreign aid to Israel, and the doctrine of maintaining Israel’s “qualitative edge” over its neighbors was begun, based both on U.S. gratitude of Israel’s defense of Western values in a generally hostile region, with the backdrop of the Cold War with the understanding of opposing the hostile Arab client states of the U.S.S.R.

The U.S. didn’t give financial aid to Israel until, you guessed it, the year of the start of the Korean War, where the U.S. outnumbered was able to stop the total takeover of the entire nation. This would have meant a very different world had this occurred. New Philippine constitution names Marcos president for life, keeping a strong U.S. as a long-term strategic partner against Soviet and Chinese desires in the region. The 1st U.S. POWs in N Vietnam released; 116 of 456 flown to the Philippines. Luna 21 launched to Moon, Pioneer 11 launched to Jupiter & Saturn and U.S. launches 1st Skylab crew to keep up with Soviet launches to moon and space of that year. The first portable cell phone call is made in New York City.

But why did desert storm occure in 1991? The U.S. only lost 148 in battle and prevented Iraq from destabilizing the region and thereby eventually severely reducing oil supplies to the U.S., crippling our economy.

And let us remember how much of a blessing the state of Israel has been to America and those that love freedom in the world.

  1. In 1970, Israel caused the withdrawal of Syrian forces from Jordan, when the U.S. was in wars in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, thus preventing the fall of the pro-American regime and the installation of a pro-Soviet radical Palestinian terrorist regime.
  2. In 1981, Israel bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak, delaying Saddam Hussein’s quest for nuclear weapons, thus providing the U.S. with the option of engaging in conventional wars with Iraq in 1991 and 2003, instead of wars with nuclear weapons possibly involved, saving the world a nightmarish scenery of possibly globe-altering conditions.
  3. The vice president of General Dynamics which produces the F16 fighter jets, stated that Israel is responsible for 600 improvements in the plane’s systems, modifications estimated to be worth billions of dollars, and spared dozens of research and development years.
  4. During the Gulf War in 1991, Israel provided invaluable intelligence, an umbrella of air cover for military cargo, and even had personnel planted in the Iraqi desert to pick up downed American pilots.
  5. In 2005, Israel provided the U.S. with the world’s most extensive experience in homeland defense and warfare against suicide bombers and car bombs, with American soldiers training in IDF facilities. 
  6. Israeli-made drones fly in Iraq, as well as in Afghanistan, providing  the U.S. with vital intelligence.
  7. In September 2007, the IAF destroyed a Syrian-North Korean nuclear plant, providing the U.S. with vital information on Russian air defense systems, which are also employed by Iran.
  8. In 2009, Israel shared with the U.S. its battle-tested experience in combating Palestinian and Hizbullah terrorism. with U.S. GIs benefiting from Israel’s battle tactics against car bombs, improvised explosive devices and homicide bombings.
  9. Israel informed U.S. the lessons of battle (during the Cold War Soviet military doctrine) and counter-terrorism (including aircraft security, homicide-suicide bombings) which reduced U.S. losses in Iraq and Afghanistan, prevented attacks on U.S. soil, upgraded U.S. weapons, and contributed to the U.S. economy. Without Israel, the U.S. could have been forced to deploy tens of thousands of U.S. troops in the eastern Mediterranean Basin, at a cost of billions of dollars per year.
  10. Israel’s utilization of  American arms gives U.S. military industries, such as Boeing and General Dynamics, a competitive edge compared to European industries. It also boosts U.S. military production, producing more American jobs, and improving U.S. national security. Japan and South Korea preferred the “Hawkeye” spy plane and the MD-500 chopper, both purchased and upgraded by Israel, over comparable British and French aircraft.
  11. Most of the $1.8 billion in annual U.S. military aid to Israel must be spent in the U.S., proving work for about 50,000 U.S. workers. Virtually all of the $1.2 billion in annual economic aid goes for repayment of debt to the U.S., incurred from military purchases dating back many years, which is now almost liquidated.
  12. Innovative Israeli technologies have given the U.S. a boost on U.S. civilian, including computer-related industries and agricultural industries, which view Israel as a valuable research and development friend.
  13. In contrast to U.S. commitments to Korea, Japan, Germany and other parts of the world, not a single U.S. military serviceperson needs to be stationed in Israel, which is estimated to be about $200,000 per year. Assuming a minimum contingent of 25,000 troops, the cost savings to the U.S. would be about $5 billion a year.
