the Name Yeshua does not guarantee us a fool-proof
Name for our Messiah as many fools use the Name Yeshua
and have doctrines that also come from demons. The GJiGT
uses the names Jesus and
with PURPOSEFUL and TOTAL interchangeability. We do not say the Name
Yeshua because we have to use His Hebrew Name, we
say it because people in these last days should KNOW that is His Hebrew Name,
BECAUSE THE DEVILS DO KNOW IT AND TREMBLE. However the
GJiGT also says the Name Jesus, and will soundly rebuke those who would
dare to say that Jesus is not a wonderful and powerful name.
Some people like to say and write Yeshua's Name as, Yahshua or some derivation with the 'Yah' in the front. This is a theological statement on their part. The only foundation for such a poor transliteration of Hebrew rests on the statement by Yeshua that He
came in His Father's Name (John 5:43). The Name to which they refer to is Yahveh, pronounced Yah-vay. Some religiously, and again we say RELIGIOUSLY, feel it necessary to correct how Yeshua's Name was spelled. Unfortunately for them, their theological reasoning has a large hole in it.
The ambassador from Israel to Cyprus comes in the name of the Prime Minister of Israel. But the ambassador does not add either Israel or the name of the current Prime Minister, to the name that he was given by his parents at birth. When the Lord was born, Yeshua was a very common name given to Jewish babies. To my knowledge there is no name Yahshua in Hebrew. However, one nice thing about Hebrew transliteration, is that if it sounds ok to you it is supposed to be OK. For sure, this is one point about which we should follow the instruction of 1 Cor 14:38, But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. However, if occasion is being sought, that is another
Those who refer to the God of Israel as Jehovah, usually just do not know that there is no 'J' sound in biblical Hebrew. Yahveh, in Hebrew is spelled, yod-hay-vav-hay. The use of the vowel sounds among the Jewish People for the yod-hay-vav-hay, is not available. Jewish tradition is rather cast in concrete that one can not, and must not, say the sacred Name of Yahveh. This rabbinic, cast in concrete idea, is ridiculous. If the People of Israel cannot say the Name of their God, who can? If Yahveh did not want the Jewish people to say His Name, there would be a Commandment as such, or He would never have given His Name to His People. That rabbinic tradition is just another example of the Rabbis doing priest craft, and is contrary to the Word of God. Yes, the Rabbis actually do tell people that it is a sin for Jews to say Yahveh. The truth is that it is a sin for the Rabbis to tell the people that they can not say the Name, Yahveh because God does NOT say that.
The pronunciation of Yahveh is interesting. The scholars from the reformation era, inserted the vowels that the Jewish Rabbis use for the Hebrew word for Lord which is Adonai, in between the four known Hebrew consonants YHVH. The first vowel is an 'ah' sound in Adonai, Ah-doe-nigh. This is where the 'JEH' for Jeh-ho-vah comes from, and some say JAH-ho-vah which is more in line with Adonai. The second vowel in Adonai is 'OH', and this is where the 'O' comes from in Jeh-HO-vah. The third vowel in Adonai is 'ai'; but in the Hebrew, the vowel is actually just an 'ah' sound, and only the 'ah' sound carries over to Jeh-ho-VAH, not the 'ai' sound.
Yahveh, with the Y changed to a J placed in the front and becomes Jeh-ho-vah in English. Germans in particular pronounce their 'J' as a Y' and so they would say, 'Yah-ho-vah. There is no biblical reason to suggest that the Holy Name is pronounced as either Jehovah or Yahovah or Yehovah, because the vowels used come from another Hebrew word; Adonai. The fact, and the truth is, that no one on earth KNOWS how to pronounce YHVH.
When people will read the KJV Holy Bible for themselves, in the way one would read any other book in which one has regard for the Author, we do come upon some troubling truths. The Jesus which has been presented to us by the big denomination Churches and Televangelists has some serious differences and distortions, compared to the Word of God in full context. We find that the Jesus of the New Testament would never condone the eating of pig, or the breaking of the Sabbath Day. However, when reading the KJV Holy Bible with the Holy Spirit as our Teacher, we also do find that the Name Jesus although not a perfect transliteration of the Hebrew Yeshua, is still a wonderful and totally acceptable way to say the Name of the Messiah of Israel.
A warning signal of possible demonic religious spirit deception, should be given heed when there is a hyper-dogmatic insistence on some word pronunciation. God looks on the heart. Occultists pay great heed to secret or magical words and their pronunciations. The admonitions of I Cor 14:8 & 38, generally applies when someone asserts that there is but one name, and one name only, by which The Messiah, The Son of God, should be known, and that it is Yashuah, or Yahshuah. The fact is, this is far removed from the truth, and can NOT be, and is by no means supported by, the Holy Bible. Nowhere in the Bible, Hebrew or Greek, can one find such a name. The Son, coming in the name of the Father, meant that just as the Father has names that point to His role in saving His people, the Son does too.
More importantly it means that the Son had
FULL authority as God, to speak in the name of the Father.
Yeshua has full power, authority, and ability to
pardon sins. His power is by no means limited to Redeemer. He is also Creator
with FULL power and authority of the Father. In Ex. 23:20-21 we clearly see
that Yahveh says that the
Messenger that He was sending before Israel, had His Name 'in him'. With THIS Messenger, all believers should recognize Jesus in this role, as the Messenger of the Covenant. He is seen throughout the Torah especially, talking in the first person, as God Himself. The Messenger clearly is the I AM, and clearly does receive worship.
This could only be Yeshua. Gen. 16:7, 9-13; 22:11, 15; 24:7, 40, Ex. 3:2-6, Num. 20:16; 22:22-27, 31-35, Jud. 2:1-4; 13:17-18, 20, Psalm 34:7. This list is by no means comprehensive but should give the idea of how fully the Old Testament teaches that all of those appearances of God are Yeshua, God the Son, or Hayah, the Hebrew word for the I AM.
The Name Yeshua means, salvation in Hebrew. The name Jesus is the Greek form of 'Joshua'. It is much like 'Joram' 2nd Kings 9:14 for 'Jehoram' 2nd Kings 9:15; 'Joash' 2nd Kings 12:20 for 'Jehoash' 2nd Kings 12:1; and 'Jonathan' most commonly for the 'Jehonathan' which we find in the Hebrew.
The full significance of the name 'Jesus' is seen in that Yahveh does save His people. When the Messiah came to this earth and took upon Himself human flesh, the Father sent His angel to declare The Messiah's name, Yeshua(Mt. 1:21). Since Yeshua means Salvation and there also is no fault to be found with those who would say Yeshua means `Salvation of the Yahveh', we can now understand what He, the Messiah, meant when He said, 'I am come in My Father's name'; and what the Father meant when He said, My name is in Him. Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
False Apostles are among the special warnings for the perils associated with the last days. Apostle and Apostasy almost appear to be similar words. Anyone who claims to be a believer in the One True God of the Holy Bible, and would sow doubt and discord regarding the Apostleship of Saul of Tarsus, is a false apostle, or at least a false teacher.
Paul was knocked off his high horse by the Risen Lord Yeshua THE Messiah. The Apostle Paul was called directly by the LORD to be the pre-eminent Apostle to establish the doctrine of Messiah. Anyone denying Paul's Apostleship is denying the LORD Yeshua who sent Paul. Such are without question deceived DECEIVERS, who either need to be born again, or be born again, AGAIN.
There can be NO tolerance or occasion given for those who want Christian fellowship, and DENY that Paul was an apostle chosen by the Lord Jesus Christ. There can be no occasion given for those seeking to gain disciples after themselves, who say that Paul's writings in the KJV Holy Bible, including the book of Hebrews, is not scripture. When you come across such, KNOW that you are dealing with an antichrist APOSTATE HERETIC. Such should immediately be given their first admonition as a heretic. If they respond in any way other than meekness, repentance, and biblical faith, they are to be given the second admonition as an heretic and REJECTED. Yes this is definitely one of those issues about which one MUST earnestly contend for THE faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject;
Titus 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
There are many parts of the Body, but there is only One Head. His name is Jesus Christ, Yeshua THE Messiah, whose name is called the Word of God!!!!!!
What about these false Apostles? APOSTLE is a common Greek word from naval and commercial language. An apostle represents the sender (Yeshua), and has AUTHORITY to represent the Sender. In the New Testament it is a technical term for a messenger Yeshua sent on a mission, and more specifically for THE TWELVE WHOM YESHUA SELECTED to follow Him and personally witness His death and resurrection.
Most specifically the Apostles were the Twelve chosen by the LORD to record and establish the Doctrine of Messiah or the Doctrine of the Apostles which is one and the same doctrine. Paul was the last of the twelve, picked directly by Yeshua, to replace Judas. The picking of Matthias, actually was a violation of the command of the Lord to WAIT until they were endued with power from on High. The picking of Matthias, as the Apostle replacement for Judas was an act of disobedience. Paul was the one chosen by the LORD to replace Judas. If one has a problem with this just think about the foundations of New Jerusalem. Rev 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
The apostles were told to go to Jerusalem and WAIT for the promised Holy Spirit. Someone should have reminded Peter that the LORD had commanded them to WAIT. Even after Peter had received the FULLNESS of the Holy Spirit, he needed correction. That should be a lesson for EVERY Minister and church member. Paul withstood Peter to his face and rebuked Peter publicly. Gal 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. Thank God Paul had the courage to give Peter such a strong public Rebuke, and thank God that Peter repented. The fact remains, that Peter was in need of public rebuke, AFTER receiving the promised Holy Spirit, AND Peter, received the rebuke, and repented. Peter's disobedience in picking Mathias, in Acts 1, really ought to raise up some red flags for the redeemed remnant in the last days of the great apostasy.
Peter was WRONG?? Yes, he was VERY wrong. What does WAIT mean? WAIT means stay in a place, or REMAIN INACTIVE, or at the ready, or in anticipation UNTIL someone comes or something happens. DELAY or PUT OFF actions. That means do NOT do anything to direct My church UNTIL you receive the promise. It meant a temporary suspension of apostolic authority UNTIL they had received the Holy Spirit. Peter did NOT WAIT for the Holy Spirit. Peter did NOT act at the direction of the Holy Spirit. Peter acted in the deductive reasoning of his disobedient unregenerate mind. Peter acted in direct disobedience of the last instruction of Yeshua to him and the other apostles. The apostles, in clear disobedience, without the Holy Spirit, acting in the flesh, chose Matthias to replace Judas.
It is most likely that Yeshua picked Saul, the very night Satan entered into Judas. Saul was in the Sanhedrin council where Yeshua was taken. It likely was there that Yeshua chose Saul. However, Saul kept kicking until, Yeshua knocked Saul off of his horse and blinded him, and PERMANENTLY ASTONISHED the Apostle Paul.
THE MAIN PURPOSE OF APOSTLES WAS TO ESTABLISH THE DOCTRINE OF YESHUA THE MESSIAH. That job is done. We need to restore the doctrine of the apostles. As for me and my house, the office of apostle is filled by the Authorized English Scriptures. Today's walking talking self proclaimed rabbis and false apostles have a difficult time with the GJiGT.
What about Apostasy? What does apostasy mean? All should now be told that we are in the great apostasy. APOSTASY is the act of rebelling against, forsaking, abandoning, or falling away from what one has believed, regarding THE Faith. THE Faith is very definite and very specific, as the ONE Faith of Salvation by the grace of God through FAITH. The FAITH of Abraham, in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, which God Himself would be and provide IN Messiah, just as Abraham had prophesied as he was about to sacrifice Isaac. Gen 22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb.
Now, if we have new apostles, are they establishing new doctrine? We do not need new doctrine. We need to have the Doctrine of Messiah, the doctrine of THE APOSTLES restored. Most, if not all, who claim to be apostles today, are the false apostles that we have been warned would come in the last days. New apostles, with new doctrines, new wine, and new spirits, may be causing the act of rebelling against, forsaking, abandoning, or falling away from THE Faith which one has believed. That is the definition of APOSTASY.
What is THE Faith? 1 Cor 16:13 Watch ye, stand fast in THE faith, quit you like men, be strong. Gal 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by THE faith OF Yeshua Messiah, even we have believed IN Yeshua Messiah, that we might be justified by THE faith OF Messiah, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall NO flesh be justified. Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by THE faith OF Him. Phil 3:9 And be found IN Him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through THE faith OF Messiah, the righteousness which is of God by faith: Col 1:23 IF ye continue in THE faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister; Col 2:12 Buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through THE faith of the operation of God, who hath raised Him from the dead. 1 Tim 3:9 Holding the mystery of THE faith in a pure conscience. 1 Tim 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from THE faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
True apostles would be very uncomfortable with such a title today. The great leaders of the faith today, if given the title of apostle by some assembly, would gladly renounce the title of apostle. All of the great leaders in the Ministry whom I have known would say that we do not need new apostles and new doctrines. Every true apostle would say we need the DOCTRINE OF THE APOSTLES RESTORED. It would be more than a little presumptuous for anyone in these days to presume that his name is written on one of the 12 foundations of New Jerusalem.
As uncomfortable as the title of apostle would make the man of God in these days, it should be made VERY MUCH MORE UNCOMFORTABLE for anyone who would come rejecting the Apostleship of Paul or denying the authority of Paul's writing as scripture. This is one of the easy ways to identify the last days heretics, most of whom are damnable heretics.
Let no man deceive himself. If any man among
you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him
become a fool, that he may be wise. We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are
wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are
honourable, but we are despised. Those are words of the Apostle Paul,
inspired by the Holy Spirit in 1 Cor 3:18 & 4:10.
We are often considered by the world in and out of the Church to be fools for
Christ's sake. Glory to God. Allelluia
Real faith makes the burdens of an impossible antichrist world, which would call us fools, to be a light burden. REAL FAITH is good, right, simple. Real Faith lightens the burden of this antichrist world to move one to simply DO what God said, without having to think too much about it, without necessarily understanding it, without anyone else thinking it is right, doing what God said, JUST BECAUSE GOD SAID SO.
To the world today, and sadly, most of ChurchDUMB, that sounds foolish. However, I am fully persuaded that is what real FAITH is all about. Real faith wants to KNOW what God said, reads what God said in the More Sure word which is written in the KJV Holy Bible, and DOES what God said, just because God said so. That is the kind of real faith which witnesses the manifestation of His exceeding great mighty power to raise the dead, heal the sick, and cast out devils. That is the faith which will even witness the greatest miracle of sinners receiving the grace of God in repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
Though shocking to many, we need to know that it is a false doctrine to believe or teach that somehow the New Testament is to be separated, more inspired, different from, or changes, the Word of God in the Old Testament. The New Testament gives fullness of understanding and revelation of the Old Testament, to be sure.
However, the New Testament in NO WAY causes the Old Testament to be less inspired or less a part of God's word. It is way past time for the heretical doctrine, that the New Testament does away with the Old Testament, to to be FIXED. We have a new covenant with a better priesthood and better promises, but that new covenant in NO WAY makes the Old Testament any less the inspired word of God.
Please understand that we am NOT calling such brethren damnable heretics. But they are brethren who are in trouble. The brethren who believe the New Testament to be more authoritative, or more inspired than the Old Testament, are brethren who have been overtaken by a heretical doctrine. To these brethren we need to seek the leading of the Holy Spirit, how that we may, in meekness, instruct them regarding how that heretical belief, causes them to be OPPOSING THEMSELVES.
Every word in the KJV Holy Bible from Gen 1:1-Rev 22:21 is ALL the Word of God. The Holy Bible is a consistent whole, and those saying otherwise, have not studied to show themselves approved unto God on the subject, and should be ashamed.
This ungodly addition of the divider page between NT & OT in the Holy Bible has created more dividing walls of hostility and ignorance, than any other page of the Bible. Here are some of the FALSE doctrines, abominations, and doctrines of devils that come from the division and separation of the Old Testament from the New Testament.
1. Only the pages AFTER the NT title page are considered to be valid teaching for Christians. They are totally sufficient for instruction in the Christian faith and no other teaching is needed. WRONG!
2. Everything prior to the NT title page has been fulfilled, completed, and done away with, because Christ has already come and fulfilled, completed, finished, and done away with everything written prior to His coming. WRONG!
3. All teaching prior to the NT title page is good ONLY for historical perspective and should not have any authoritative value in any Christian's life, as Christ is our only authority now. WRONG!
4. Any effort to obey any custom or commandment prior to the NT title page is evidence of religious bondage and "keeping the Law." This is evidence of "salvation by works" and is in direct conflict with Christ's salvation by faith. WRONG!
NOW FOR THE BIGGIE THAT COULD CAUSE THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE SO-
CALLED CHRISTIAN WORLD TO CHEER THE ANTICHRIST WHEN HE DOES THE
ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION
5. Any sacrifice prior to the NT title page is removed and should not ever be done again, because Christ is the final sacrifice for everything. WRONG!
Many Christian teachers today, really believe that the teaching of the Old Testament is valid only for historical perspective. The title page for the New Testament then effectively keeps people IGNORANT. That is good for the religion business. That NT title page becomes a barrier set up to redirect Christians back to the New Testament, preventing them from understanding what Moses actually taught.
This is so far removed from the teaching of the Apostles, that it is amazing how some teaching such things, would claim the same Holy Spirit of inspiration of the Apostles.
When the Apostle Paul wrote this to Timothy, what Scripture was he referring to? THINK.
2 Tim 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. THINK.
Now with your mind washed by the Word, and renewed and regenerated by the Holy Ghost, was Paul referring to his letters to Timothy and others, or was he referring to the writings of Moses and the Prophets?
When Peter wrote his letter to the believers, what Scripture was he referring to?
2 Pet 1:20-21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Was Peter referring to his own letter or to the writings of Moses and the Prophets?
Consider when James referred the Gentiles to the teaching of Moses for instruction in the "essentials" of the faith after the first council in Jerusalem with Peter and Paul.
Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
This truth may shock you; but, the Holy Ghost should quicken your renewed mind to understand that James did, IN FACT, EXPECT Gentile Christians to go and receive the instruction of Moses from synagogues on the Sabbath day? Yes, Brethren, like it or not, that is the bottom line of how James summarized his instruction, from the Acts 15, Jerusalem Counsel, by referring the Gentile Christians to the teaching of Moses! Yes, on the SABBATH, in accord with the 4th Commandment, not suggestion, that JESUS wrote with His finger in STONE, so not even the pope could change it. The teaching of James and all of the Apostles is completely consistent and agrees with Moses.
True, Apostolic, Holy Ghost teaching of the New Testament is completely consistent with Moses and the Prophets. True, Apostolic, Holy Ghost teaching in fact, MUST be based upon Moses and the Prophets, OR IT IS OUT OF CONTEXT, AND WITHOUT FOUNDATION, AND IS OF A SPIRIT WHICH IS NOT THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH.
This may be a tough pill to swallow, but God commands father's to teach Torah to their children. (Lev 10:11, Deu 4:10, Deu 6:7, Deu 11:19, Deu 31:19) There is not such a command for fathers to teach the Gospel to their children. It is only the teaching of Torah which keeps children free of danger of receiving another gospel, or another Jesus. I dare say, that one only THINKS one understands Yeshua, without the instruction of Moses. I dare say, without a special MIRACLE work of the Holy Ghost, one does not KNOW, with fullness of understanding, what Jesus taught, without the instruction of Moses.
1 Cor 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
It is TRULY as Yeshua said: John 5:46-47 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
Do the New Testament Holy Ghost preachers really understand what Jesus taught if they do NOT believe the words of Moses? According to what Jesus said in John 5:46-47 the answer would be NO.
The writings of the Apostles are the word of God just as much as Moses and the Prophets, BUT NOT MORE SO.
The writings of Moses and The Prophets are the word of God just as much as the writings of the Apostles, BUT NOT MORE SO.
All 66 books of the KJV Holy Bible are Scripture, and the very Word of God. However, to say the writings of the Apostles are more important than Moses and the Prophets, is ERROR. To say the writings of Moses and the Prophets are more important than the writings of the Apostles, is ERROR. All 66 books are the Word of God. 2 Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God. God Said So. God IS God. God can NOT Lie. God does NOT Change. Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ, (whose name is called the word of God), the same yesterday, and to day, and forever.
We should be prepared to point out the ERROR of discounting, devaluing, or discarding any of the Word of God. ALL from Gen 1:1-Rev 22:21 is the Word of God. I will stand strong against anyone who discounts or devalues, or separates the writings of Moses and the Prophets, as compared with the New Testament. I will stand just as
strongly against anyone would DARE to discount, devalue, or separate the writings of the New Testament from the teaching of Moses and the Prophets. The Apostles taught EXCLUSIVELY from the Old Testament to instruct the FIRST Century Christians. A good example as well, is how Yeshua Himself, taught the disciples on the road to Emmaus, immediately after His resurrection:
Luke 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
Luke 24:31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
Luke 24:32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
It was Moses and the Prophets, which was taught to new believers of Yeshua, in that FIRST century. It was that teaching of Moses and the Prophets, that caused their hearts to burn within them like those on the road to Emmaus. Brethren, we can be absolutely certain of the FACT that the Old Testament is the writing which the First century church of Jesus Christ relied upon. The information in the back of my KJV, says that the first gospel was written by either Matthew or Mark in about 70AD, Paul's Epistles from about 51-64AD, and Revelation was not completed until very near the END of the First century in about 95AD. The New Testament could NOT have been assembled until the SECOND Century at the EARLIEST. From that FACT, we do KNOW there is sufficient instruction in the Old Testament alone, to convince a reasonably minded person, that Yeshua is the Messiah. The evidence of the New Testament with its miracles, and fulfilled prophecies, is dessert; but, the main course for believing in Messiah, spiritual warfare tactics, the second coming, and millennial kingdom, is in the Old Testament.
Without question Moses is the greatest Prophet of the Messiah. Jesus said so in John 5:46-47. The Old Testament prophets have much more to say about the second coming, and the millennial kingdom, than the New Testament does. But how many Christians know this?
So go ahead and call me wrong and ignorant. Meanwhile, I will witness devils being cast out in the name of Yeshua, see the sick be healed in the name of Jesus, and yes, even witness Him raise the dead. Yes, I am ignorant; but, I have NO time or interest in the vain powerless religions based upon rationalizing why God did NOT mean what He said. Those are the ones who are WRONG. Jesus said you MUST be born again. To those who say they have been born again, who are in those vain powerless religions of rationalizing why God did NOT mean what He said, - WELL - that rather makes them living proof that the once saved always saved doctrine of devils, is a lie. Yet, for those who will seek and find His grace to repent, you can be born again, AGAIN.
Heresy is a self-chosen belief in opposition to the Holy Scriptures. That SELF is the key word in the identification of heresy and heretics. The Holy Bible makes very clear distinction between simple, uninformed, or ignorant heretics, and DAMNABLE heretics.
It should noted that BEFORE God did provide Himself, Messiah, as the Lamb of God, to take away the sin of the world, the Torah called for the death penalty for certain serious violations of the Law of God. The reason for this necessity, BEFORE the coming of the Kingdom of God, in the person of Messiah Yeshua, is that there was no other way to break, or limit the extent of the curse. Demonic license was gained through certain serious transgressions of the Law of God, and the demonic host gained a legal right to destroy the people of God. Through the power of the blood of Messiah, the Lamb of God, prophesied by Abraham and Moses, all curses may now be broken. Thus the need for the death penalty, for such things as gross sexual sin, false teachers, false prophets, and witches is not required. Their foot will slide in due time.
It should be understood that if a heresy becomes accepted by the majority, as being a true belief, that does NOT stop the heresy from being heresy. This is why the understanding of HERESY and how it should be dealt with by faithful remnant believers, is so important. The last days, we do know, will be marked by a world wide famine for hearing the Word of God. The last days of the antichrist war on the SAINTS is to be marked by a great apostasy, a great falling away from THE Faith. That means that heresy will be the majority belief, as the majority will depart from the FAITH.
2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when they will not
endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves
teachers, having itching ears;
Titus 1:9-11 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
2 Th 2:8-12 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
SELF-Chosen Beliefs that contradict or deny God Inspired revelations contained in, and easily confirmed by, the More Sure word of the Holy Bible, is the basis of defining heresy. The heretics oppose themselves, by self-chosen beliefs, in opposition to the Word of God. Often the heresy of the heretic may be the result of never having read the Holy Bible, or having been taught to believe error by a false teacher. Such simple heretics when confronted with the truth of the Scriptures, may be led by the Spirit of Truth and Holiness, to put aside their false beliefs in preference to the truth of the word of God. However, when the heretic is given the first admonition, often the demonic characteristics associated with many heresies, will manifest. That demonic spirit may be a spirit of rebellion, or a religious spirit, in addition to pride and envy. After the second admonition, the heretic - yes, even the simple heretic, is to be rejected.
As we look at what the Holy Bible says, there are different types or levels of heresy. In Acts 5:17, 15:5; and 26:5, it simply means a party or sect, or what we call a denomination. In Acts 24:14 and 28:22 it is used in a slightly derogatory sense, referring to Christians being separatists or sectarians, by the more mainstream majority of the Jewish rabbis.
Paul used the term heresies to refer to groups which threatened the harmony, and unity of the church. 1 Cor 11:19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. The heresies described the disgraceful way in which the Corinthians were observing the Lord's Supper. Paul would sometimes use the term heresy as the source of factions or divisions. In Galatians 5:20 we are clearly told that heresy is one of the works of the flesh, in the list along with strife, seditions, and envyings. SELF really is the KEY word in understanding heresy. Invariably heretics are people who choose to place their own desires above the fellowship of their brethren, or even the love of the truth, as defined by the Word of God.
In Titus 3:10-11 we are given direction regarding heretics and how we are to deal with them. The context of these verses has to do with quarreling and dissensions. The FROWARD person will even invent things to separate brethren from one another. Heresy and factions go together. In God’s Kingdom there is no such thing as a little rebellion. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and obedience is better than sacrifice.
In 2 Peter 2:1 we see what the CLEAR Difference between heretics and DAMNABLE heretics involves. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. The damnable heretic clearly refers to the false teachers or false prophets who DENY the TRUTH OF THE PERSON AND WORK OF MESSIAH. The damnable heretic is one who has left the doctrine of Christ. The damnable heretic does not recognize Yeshua the Messiah, as God, the Son. The damnable heretic is different from the simple heretic, or Jew, in that the damnable heretic has DEPARTED from the doctrine of Messiah. Most Jews, because of persecution by so-called Christians, have never really been exposed to the Doctrine of Messiah, or the Doctrine of the Apostles. Most Jews have NOT Departed from the Doctrine of Christ.
Heresy may have as much to do with fellowship within the church as it does with doctrinal teachings, if the heresy is NOT DAMNABLE heresy. Doctrine and actions are equally important. Wrong attitudes such as counterfeit religious spirits, and spirits of rebellion, and improper attitudes, are as important as the depth of understanding of what God has revealed to man. However in 2 John 7-11 we see that we are not even to say God Bless you, or bid God speed, and most certainly not give substance support, to the DAMNABLE heretic. In those few verses we also see precisely what defines the damnable heretic.
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess NOT that Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and ABIDETH NOT in the doctrine of Christ, hath NOT God. He that ABIDITH in the doctrine of Christ, he hath BOTH the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring NOT this doctrine, receive him NOT into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. 2 John 7-11.
We see that the damnable heretic is one who has departed from the Doctrine of Christ, more so than one who had never had opportunity to know. Tragically, the vast majority of Jews do not know their own glorious Messiah, because of how they have been persecuted by so-called Christians, under the leadership of the black witchcraft Babylonian religion of Rome. Sadly the Protestants never protested this, and have often followed the lead of the heretic Roman Catholic Church.
The vast majority of Roman Catholics have never read the Holy Bible. The vast majority of Roman Catholics are in the same blindness of the pagans, heathen, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists and other religions who are trying to find eternal life in a DIFFERENT Way other than the Doctrine of Messiah. The damnable heretic is one who has known, or had previously professed to know, the REAL Messiah, who is BOTH God and man, who is BOTH Creator and Redeemer, and now professes a Messiah who is less than fully God, and equal with the Father, in power, authority, and eternity. The damnable heretic now professes a different Jesus other than the REAL true Jesus Christ who is God the Son, the I AM, who spoke to Abraham, and Moses, who is BOTH Creator and Redeemer. The DAMNABLE Heretic professes faith in another Jesus, and another Gospel.
Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
A sad reality today is, that within large Messianic congregations of over 100, one will generally find a small COVERT cell, within the congregation, who have another Messiah, who is NOT FULLY God who is come in the flesh. What they have is the powerful demon religious spirits, that go with the ground given by the age old Arian heresy, which is the Synagogue of Satan, with which all of the Apostles did earnestly contend. In the first century, there were Jewish Synagogues that did profess that Yeshua was the Messiah, while denying that He was God. This Hebrew spin of the common Jehovah Witness, or Christadelphia heresy is DEADLY and DAMNABLE Heresy.
That is part of the reason why the simple and yet powerful test of the Spirit is so important. Just ask them to say – Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh. Those in the secret and/or sacred name heresy groups will find that simple test of the spirit to be difficult. I have yet to see the Satanist who could pass that simple test without great difficulty. Many will say Yeshua did come in the flesh. Or Messiah has come in the flesh. Though true, that is still FAILING the simple test of the Spirit. The “IS Come” profession involves the acknowledgment that Jesus or Yeshua is fully God the I AM, who spoke to Abraham and Moses, who is BOTH Creator and Redeemer. If you find some Messianic rabbi today, who has the slightest hitch, or reluctance to boldly confess that “Jesus Christ IS COME in the flesh,” BEWARE. The more you apply that simple test of the spirit, the more you will be amazed at how effective and powerful that simple test of the spirit is, to remove the sheep’s clothing from the wolves. Jesus Christ IS Come in the flesh – that simple statement will disclose many subtle damnable heretics in these last days of Strong Delusion.
The Roman Catholic Church has killed and tortured literally millions of Jews and real Christians, people of the book. Now days the Vatican, which put Mohammed in the religion business, tries to maintain a VERY thick sheep’s cloak over the antichrist Luciferian goals of that MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Sadly, the very vast majority of those in the bondage of the Roman Catholic Church, have no idea of the true bloody murderous history of that abominable church of Rome. They remain totally convinced that salvation is by the sacraments of the Roman Church and not by the grace of God through THE Faith of The Lord Jesus Christ.
This makes the Roman Catholic INQUISITIONS so particularly abhorrent. There is NO justification for killing the heretic, since the CROSS, and establishment of the Kingdom of God by the Messiah. The heretic should be rejected, marked, and not given Christian fellowship; but, that is the full extent of the duty and power of the Kingdom of Messiah. No more serious action was ever to be placed upon the heretic. The Roman Catholic Church still maintains that she has this power to kill those who will not follow Rome’s heresies. The pope has been the pre-eminent heretic in the world since the first pope, and Roman Emperor Constantine, and his court theologian, Eusebius, set up the Roman Catholic State Church of the Roman Empire, in the fourth century. In the seventh century Rome put the great heretic and false prophet Mohammed in the religion business, to kill Jews and Christians, people of the book, as the Koran calls them. It should be no surprise that the Muslims have no great problems with the Roman Catholics, because they are NOT people of the book, unlike Jews and real Christians. That is the religion of Islam, to kill and destroy the people of the book. The god of Vatican Rome, is the same as the god of Islam, and freemasonry, and all other false religions, LUCIFER.
It is right and proper to ask those who seek Christian fellowship - "Who is the Messiah, and how is He related to God? What did Yeshua do in His human life, and how did it come about that the Christian or Messianic believers give Him titles belonging to God?"
The cross must be explained. 1 Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. How Yeshua could be the Messiah was a great stumbling block to the Jews, because His death at the hands of the of the Roman political powers stood in direct and obvious contradiction to all that faithful Jews believed about the Messiah. The Jews expected Messiah to be glorious and God's expected Deliverer of His people. The Jews knew Deu 21:23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance. The Jew has a difficult time understanding anyone hanging on a tree, who died under God's curse, could be their glorious Messiah.
The answer may be seen in their scriptures like Psalm 118:22 and Isaiah 53, and Micah 5:2, and many other Messianic prophecies of the Hebrew scriptures. It is not possible to side step His direct claims to be the Messenger and embodiment of God's kingdom. His resurrection from that death on the cross; however, is the real answer. In the resurrection of Messiah, God had reversed this cursed death verdict, vindicated His Son, and installed Him in the place of highest honor, power, and authority.
The first Christian prayer of which we have any record is "Maranatha" which means, "our Lord, come." That most simple ancient prayer to the risen Lord, places Him in equality with Yahweh, Israel's covenant God, and worthy of the worship of men and angels.
1 Cor 16:22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
Rom 10:9-13 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Also in relation to this most important issue of THE Faith is the final testimony of the first Christian martyr Steven:
Acts 7:55-59 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
This is the shocking and unique message in the ONE TRUE FAITH of Abraham. It is The Faith of the One True Messiah Yeshua, who by His resurrection and enthronement at the right hand of the Majesty on high, is proven to be God the Son, as well as The ONLY Messiah. The "Son of man" who also is God the Son, is the head of a worldwide kingdom, far outstripping the narrow confines of Jewish hopes.
Some day SOON the veil which still remains over Jewish eyes when Moses is preached, will be removed. Such scriptures as the following will no longer be a stumbling block to the Jews but cause for their greatest rejoicing:
Phil 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Heb 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Heb 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Those words of God faithfully inspired by the Holy Spirit of God as surely as God inspired Moses, do NOT compromise the belief that the God of Israel is ONE God. The roots of true Christianity are 100% Jewish. It was a full NINE YEARS AFTER the crucifixion and resurrection of Messiah, after THOUSANDS of Jews had become Messianic believers in Yeshua, as the I AM who spoke to Moses and Abraham, that the FIRST Gentile, Cornelius, was admitted into that company of Messianic Jewish believers. The Christian or Messianic inheritance is 100% Jewish in its roots and remains faithful to the Jewish patriarch’s central belief in ONE God, in a world of many false gods. In No way did those early believers in Messiah ever hold the view that Jesus was a rival God in competition with His Father. The worship of Jewish and Gentile believers in Messiah has always been properly directed to God who has revealed Himself once-for-all and uniquely in Messiah, the Son, who is BOTH God and man, as well as BOTH Creator and Redeemer. God the Father loves and honors and exalts His ONLY Begotten Son. The Messiah mirrors the perfect expression of the divine nature of the Father.
Belief in the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, is the most Jewish belief that any Jew could have. One day soon, the world will be ROCKED as God removes the veil from the eyes of the Jewish people, and they all, as a Nation, Look upon Him whom WE ALL have PIERCED by our sins. It will be exactly as the prophet of Israel, Zechariah, foretold.
Zec 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
Col 1:13-14 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
2 Cor 4:4-6 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
For now let it suffice to say there are Damnable Heretics like Vendle Jones, and the Netzarim group, and others, who are seeking to traffic in the souls of men, in the modern Messianic movement. Christians who have been awakened to the truth of Jeremiah 16:19 need to BEWARE as you look into the Jewish roots of the Gospel. It is important to demand of any visiting Messianic rabbis, with unhesitating boldness confess – Jesus Christ IS Come in the flesh. If they do not want to say Jesus Christ – BEWARE. If they will not give a definite and absolute YES to the question – Do you believe that Jesus Christ is God? – Beware and MARK them. Some of these damnable Messianic rabbi wolves, are very slick and hard to pin down. Demand a yes or no, to the simple question - Do you believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son who is BOTH Creator and Redeemer.
