A tract to challenge Christians of all denominations to think carefully about what some human traditions
may look like in the Eyes of our Creator. In the world-to-come, when we are resurrected and clothed with immortality, there
will be TWO "denominations." Which denomination is of the only Savior?
Please consider taking a dare. This
is a challenge for you to think outside of "the box" of your denomination.
You'll thank us later.
is the right one? In the world-to-come, there will be "two" denominations.
Read this article, and you'll find out what they are. A basic struggle we all have is getting at
the Truth, and seeing things from our Creator's
point-of-view. We all have beliefs, but what we really need is the Truth; The True facts. We
have to stop limiting things to man's point-of-view alone.
At Deut. 12:30-32,
we are commanded to not learn the "ways" of the Pagans (to
not learn or adopt formats or traditions which Pagans used to serve their idols), nor worship the Creator in their way. That eliminates the excuse that is most popular: that because we
aren't thinking about worshipping the Creator in a Pagan way, then the previous
Pagan activity is "cleansed" of all its pagan origins and intentions. If intentions
are what makes things OK, then the Creator would have told us this in His Word- the Scriptures; but the golden
calf was made with the intention of worshipping the CREATOR, and we see that the whole nation of Israel was almost
destroyed. "Pagan" is the same thing as "Satanic." Sorcery, astrology, or magic (black or white)
are all the "works of the devil." Worshipping the Creator in a way He did not develop is very dangerous.
Most of you are aware that "Halloween" was
and is a Pagan observance, and have begun by withdrawing your family's involvement in it -- and you've probably
felt the heat from family and friends over it too. Well, you need to look
carefully into the origins of the holidays we've inherited called "Christmas" and "Easter" as well. Relax, because the Truth and your belief in our Messiah and His Word will stand firm; but you will
discover that "Christmas" and "Easter" are no different than Halloween -
formerly they were Pagan observances which became camouflaged and revised to appear as something different than they really
are. Paganism, witchcraft, and Satanism are all the same thing -- rebellion against THE CREATOR. You
will hear all sorts of excuses for theses holidays, and the heat you've felt over Halloween is nothing compared to what you
will be feeling when you learn the true background of Christmas and Easter. The very religious Pilgrims that came to the continent
of North America in the 15th century were fleeing severe persecution for their understandings of Scripture, and the first
colonies established had laws on the books which outlawed the Pagan observance of Christmas -- because they all
knew what it really was. This all became more relaxed as increasing numbers of Irish Catholics immigrated to this continent. The
Colonials didn't like the Irish very much, because of their Catholicism -- the thing many of them had fled from. It
wasn't because they were Irish! The idea of "SUN-DAY" being the Sabbath, changed during the 4th century, is
another area that generates a lot of heat.
If you need a Christmas tree, or a chocolate bunny rabbit & Easter eggs, or wish to change the day of rest which the Creator has established, and you don't know there's
anything wrong, then you are without a knowledge of sin (Jn. 15:22). 1 Jn 1:4 should be a strong warning for
those "without the law" however. When you have been told, and investigate what Scripture says about these things,
and don't repent, you are responsible; and guilty of an even greater transgression. These pagan traditions are idolatry, because
they originated in idolatry. The Roman Catholic Church used "missionary adaptation" on us, inculturating formerly
Pagan elements in populations to "convert" the people using their familiar patterns of worship. In other words,
the Pagan format remained intact, but the meaning of the terms, symbols, and traditions were altered; and Scripture had
to be suppressed to pull it off.
In the Creator's eyes, these Pagan elements cannot be washed and changed into anything
else. A pig, after it is cleaned up, is still a pig, even if you put lipstick on it and pretend it's changed. Converts
who have been cleaned from their idolatry are like pigs if their hearts are not converted. But, the Jesuits don't
care about the Creator or the Savior; the "end" justifies the "means".
pigs, they too will return to their mud hole, and like a dog, return to their vomit. The lure is just too much.
The context of Romans 14 is speaking about "special days," because the "Jewish"
Religious Rulers of the time had human traditions concerning fasting twice each week. If someone didn't follow
the pattern, they were regarded as less pious. Paul was simply declaring that what we do or don't do is OK, fasting or not,
but he is not condoning the adoption of previously pagan customs and traditions to honor the Creator with them. This
is going far beyond the intention of what Paul wrote. Paul is commonly misunderstood to be sure. Peter warned us not
to misunderstand Paul's writings.
Often, it is said, "Christians do not have to observe any particular day."
have been taught that SUN-DAY is the "Christian Sabbath," and even believing this they will buy and sell or work
on this day, the 1st day of each week. They will agree, however, that their SUN-DAY is certainly not the
Sabbath that the Savior observed.
HOW MUST WE LIVE?
How we live is a mixture of how we were molded and taught,
and what we have chosen to accept or reject. Our walk reveals who we really serve, even if we are
deceived about who that is. The Hebraic concept of how we live is called "halakah," from the word halak,
referring to our "walk". The "way" or "path" on which we do this
"walking" is either the narrow path of light (as Torah directs us in its teachings/directions), or the
broad road of darkness that follows no directions from the Torah. This road of darkness without Torah leads to death
(the eternal kind). The Torah is the way, our map, to direct us into
"paths of righteousness" which the Creator guides us into "for His Name’s sake." This is what
the Savior taught. All who call on His true Name (more on His true Name later) must depart from all unrighteousness, or it
brings shame upon His Name. The Savior/Messiah is "the way," the living Torah (Word of THE CREATOR), and the light. His
religion -- the way He lives -- is the only way (1 Jn 2:6); there's no other way to enter eternal life but
through the gateway. You cannot invent your own way, or path, and sneak in without accepting the love for
the Truth, which is His Torah. He will give you this love for His Torah, but you have to want it, and ask
Him for it.
How do you live? Most of us are raised in a denomination or mold, called
"a religion". These may be about the Messiah, but are any of them the
Messiah’s way or
religion? Again 1 Jn 2:6 says:
"The one who says
he stays in Him ought himself also to walk, even as He walked."
Do we need to have a degree
in Theology to understand what that sentence might mean? It’s simple. If we say we are in Him (Savior) then we are to
walk and live as he did. How did he live? He followed and lived by the Torah (His Father’s Commandments). He taught
others to do the same. Do you live by the Torah?
Further, 2 Jn. 1:6 tells us:
this is the love, that we walk according to His Commands. This is the Command, that as you have heard from the beginning,
you should walk in it."
Our obedience is the evidence of our
faithfulness, and shows the Creator and Master that we are His servants, and we're not inventing our own methodology or following
any humanly-designed process. The Commandments are not new, and neither can they be revoked; they define
what a sin is (see 1 Jn. 3:4, Jas. 1:22-25). The New (or renewed) Covenant is having these Commands
written upon our hearts and minds by
Yahusha's Spirit (Heb. 8).
Attention: Even SATAN is a believer (Ya'aqob/James
2:19) . . . but this rebellious being will not serve and obey.
how we walk (our halakah) that reveals the truth about whether our
"religion" is His religion. Or our walk
shows if we just talk about our belief in Him without true actions based on the way He walked.
One path is the path of light, guided by the Torah, and the other is designed by traditions of men to win the approval of
men — seminary-trained, but flawed in their walk, having exchanged the Commandments of the Creator for the traditions
Unless your conscience is completely numbed by listening to the intoxicating excuses and deceiving teachings,
you know that most have fulfilled the prophecy that there would be an "apostasy," or falling-away from the Torah,
the true faith. It can only be determined by what is right, or righteous, as defined by the Torah — not the
masquerading messengers of light who fill our heads with traditional lies that have no basis from Scripture.
everything, especially the excuses you are taught, and ask for the clear Scriptural foundation they base their teachings upon.
If we are taught that we no longer have to obey a Commandment, there had better be clear Scriptural verses to show this to
be true. A good place to start investigating would be to study the 4th Commandment, concerning the "Sabbath",
which commands us to rest on the 7th day of each week — in commemoration of Creation week. Has this Commandment
been annulled by THE CREATOR, or men? Can men alter any of the Commandments? They may claim they have
the authority, but Scripturally this is simply not true. Catholics have claimed the authority to "bind and loose" is in the hands of men, however these words simply mean "forbid and permit", and the men (elders) who can do this are intended to be guided
solely by a thorough knowledge of Torah (what the Creator has spoken in His Word). Men
have departed from the Torah, and the "apostasy" prophesied in the Scripture is this falling away from
Torah. "Nicolaitans" (Revelations shows the current teaching of today’s "church"
is an abomination and calls these folks Nicolaitans) have invented their own way of serving, and it's been designed to make
them rich - borrowing heavily from Pagan backgrounds. Consequently, we see many things "forbidden
and permitted" which are simply the whims of men, apart from the counsel of Scripture. They tickle people's
ears to make things feel warm and fuzzy for everyone.
The conscience which the Creator
put within us is supposed to warn
us when we do wrong, but if it is
"seared," or short-circuited with false doctrine, it cannot do this. When we drink clean water (Truth)
and poisoned water (false doctrine) together, it’s what Scripture calls "wormwood," and we are in a stupor. Most
people stay "drunk" on this wormwood, flowing from pulpits each week. Words of men tickle their ears, and they
are constantly made to feel at ease, but they remain in idolatrous sin.
is really obedience, the doing of what the Creator expects of us. If we neglect doing what He expects of us (obey), but
assume our intentions will serve the same results, then we didn't understand
the Fall, the golden calf incident, nor why Qayin's (Cain's) offering was not pleasing to the Creator. "If
you do well, shall you not be accepted?" (Gen. 4:7). Qayin (Cain) made up his own
mind how he was going to worship the Creator and what would be the offering. How is Christianity any different?
All the Sun-day assemblies, Christmas trees, and Easter baskets in the world will not be acceptable to the Creator, unless
He prescribed them as a form of worshipping Him. So, our simple task is to find out what the Creator expects, then
"do well" so that He will accept our worship of Him. Then, we can expect to hear the
words, "Well done , good and faithful servant!" (Mt. 25:21). Doing
"the Word" is obeying Him, not adding to it, or taking away from it, or adopting the Pagan cultural background as
tradition has done.
Read Acts, and circle the word Sabbath
each time it is used.
What was Luke mentioning the "Sabbath" for? Many say, "We
aren't Jewish, so we don't have to obey the 4th Commandment." Well, why
stop there? Why not say, "We aren't Jewish, so we don't have to worry about the 7th and 8th Commandments" or
any other of the Commandments either. ~ What?
Here's where the rubber meets the
road - What is the New (or re-newed)
Covenant? If it is something different, please tell us:
Covenant (See Yirmeyahu sn-Jer 31, Ibrim sn-Heb chapters 8 & 10): The Messiah writes His Torah (teachings,
Commandments) on our hearts. We receive a love for the Truth, His Word, which
is the Covenant, or Ten Commandments. It's as simple as that. This process involves being
convicted of sin (by learning the Commandments), repenting (stop sinning,
turn back to them), and being immersed into His Name. This immersion is the outward sign of
the "circumcision" of our heart, by the Spirit of the Messiah, who lives in us from that point on. We
cannot convince you or convict you of your sin (rebellion against THE CREATOR's Covenant, the Ten Commandments) -- but the
one and only Savior can change your heart, which is your only hope. The mind of the flesh cannot, and will not, obey. We
love the Creator’s Ten Commandments. Would you like to love them too?
dare you" – to say, "I want to love the Commandments too." The
Savior’s Spirit is all around you, and He WILL grab you if you return to His Covenant. This is what happened to
the prodigal son, the moment he took his first step out of the pig pen, to return to His Father's house, the Torah/Covenant.
Take that step -- ask Him to write His Torah on your heart. He has promised to do this if you will repent, believing on His
Name. The Scriptures (non corrupted versions) says for you to be Immersed (Acts 2:38; 10:48) into the Name of the Messiah.
If you’d like to read a non-corrupted "English" translation of the Scriptures go to www.isr-messianic.org.
By the way, do you know the real Name of the Creator and the real Name of the Savior as is written in the
Original and Early Scriptures? Most have no clue what the most important Name in the universe is even though Scripture says
that SALVATION comes only through a particular NAME. Not just any old name, Scripture says there’s only one name
given by whom we MUST be Saved (Acts 4:12).
From this point you must decide whether or not you will live your
life by the Scripture or not. Proverbs 30:4 even challenges us to see if we know what the Creator’s Name is and what
the name of His Son is. We can guarantee you what their Names are beyond a shadow of a doubt. Only those who love the truth
get to have Eternal Life through this Name. The name of the Creator (Father) is YAHUAH,
and the Son said in the Scripture that He came in His Father’s Name. The Son’s undisputable name is YAHUSHA.
YAHU-SHA (YAHU is short for YAHUAH, and SHA means Salvation). The Savior name means YAHUAH is
SALVATION. You can get plenty of documentation on this fact from our website as well as many others around the world.
"Jesus" is not our Messiah's Name (there’s only one Name, Acts 4:12, and it’s not based on Greek or
Latin). The idea that His Name is "Jesus" was put into peoples’ heads by Jesuits. It is a lie,
and not of the Truth. We’ve "dared" countless numbers of people (scholars and laymen) to prove that
"Jesus" is the true Messiah/Savior, and no one can do it. All most do is defend "opinions of tradition"
without any Scriptural backing.
Research this for yourself. How can one prove a lie to be the truth? The letter "J"
is only around 500 years old? In the first 4 editions (starting in 1611) of the King James Version, there was no "Jesus"
in it. The first time "Jesus" is found is in the 1628 KJV! Jesus can only mean one of three things: "Out
of or Son of Zeus" (Greek); "The Horse" (Hebrew); or "The Pig" (Latin). None of these means the Messiah/Savior
of the World. "I Dare You" to prove this wrong. You won’t be able to. The Messiah
said He came in His Father’s Name and prophesied that most won’t receive Him in His Father’s Name (Jn 5:43).
He said most would follow a different name, because they seek to please others rather than the Father.
Creator and Savior’s true Name is shocking for most people, but this deception has happened before. Just read the Scriptures
and you’ll see how the Creator gave his people over to "pagans," because they didn’t follow His ways.
Then we find a small amount of truth seekers crying out to Him to come back to them and He reveals Himself again. The truth
is being revealed again and you’re reading it right now. For those who think His Name is not important, how would you
like for him to forget your name in the Book of Life (Rev 20:15)? If you don't want Him to forget your name, your sure best
not forget His-- He made it a Commandent and said if you don't take it seriously, you will be helf guilty
(Ex 20:7). Satan’s time and deception is running out and he wants you to stay deceived.
If we were a servant of the adversary, would we promote the obedience to the
Covenant made between Yashrael -sign name- Israel- (YAHUAH’s wife) and the YAHUAH, THE CREATOR? You
may have never heard it before, but you must engraft into Yashrael (Israel) to partake of
the Covenant(s) (see Romans 11). You do not "replace" Yahshrael (Israel), you must engraft
into the olive tree (Yahshrael sn-Israel). You may likely be of a "wild" olive tree, a foreigner to the cultivated
garden of YAHUAH, Yashrael (Israel). The "sign"
of the everlasting Covenant is the sign of the Sabbath Day, which rolls around each week.
Our legal proof is Ex. 31:13-17, quoted again at Hebrews 4:4-11. Without this sign, can you be in a Covenant of
any kind with YAHUAH based on what Scripture teaches? The answer is absolutely NO.
(sn-Isaiah) 48:10 speaks of an iron furnace, a furnace of affliction, an unfriendly environment
which refines and tests us constantly. Many of us are in that furnace now, being tested who we will serve. "As
for me and my house, we will serve YAHUAH." You can’t be a "coward" and have Eternal Life (Rev
21:8). The Creator, YAHUAH wants to know will we take the narrow unpopular road and follow Him, or will we take the more popular
road and follow the many who are walking on the broad road that leads to destruction. We are the servant of the one
whom we obey. Look at the 12 gates into the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:12-15) -- each one is named for a tribe
of Yashrael (Israel). There's no Christian gate, no Islamic gate, no Hindu gate, or any other gate of the thousands
man made "religions" in the world today. Welcome to all those who join Yashrael (Israel), and observe
the Commandments of YAHUAH. If you want to really scare yourself, ignore everything we've told you in this letter.
If you want more proof, read Yeshayahu (sn-Isaiah) 56. Actually, read chapters 55, 56, and 57.
that "Isaiah’s" real name is Yeshayahu. Guess what that name means? Yesha means "Salvation." Yahu
is short for—guess who?-- YAHUAH. So based on the Prophet that the Messiah YAHUSHA quoted the most, who is Salvation?
YAHUAH is Salvation. As a matter of fact the deceivers who translated most current English Scriptures changed nearly all of
the Prophets and Patriarchs real names. How does YAHUAH feel about people changing His Word (see Prov 30:6, Rev 22:18, 19).
What "new name" was the Savior talking about in Rev 3:12? For the people who are saved, what NAME is written on
their foreheads in Rev 14:1, 22:4.
Consider the possibility that you may be intoxicated
on wormwood, but you don't know it -- so study on your own, without the excuses ringing in your ears. You
will find the Truth of every matter under Heaven. It may sound odd to put it this way, but "drinking"
the intoxicating "wine" (doctrines) of misguided preachers will keep you numb — as if you are drunk —
and you simply need to sober-up and do some personal research in the Scriptures. The excuses are "an eye of darkness",
which seeks after ways of getting around the Commandments. An "eye filled with light" is that approach
which pants after YAHUAH's Commandments, looking for more to learn so they can be obeyed. Which approach would
Satan want you to take? Remember, Satan is a believer too; but not an obeyor. And
if you obey, would that upset Yahusha, or the men and their traditions of setting aside the Commandments of YAHUAH?
You know the answer -- and if you act in the Truth, you'll be in the iron furnace with the rest
of us. Try obeying the Sabbath, and feel the heat we feel for it.
Walk like Yahusha. "I Dare You."
TO CONCLUDE- A TALE OF TWO DENOMINATIONS:
YAHSHRAEL (sn-ISRAEL) and the DOGS
The only two "denominations" that will be in the world-to-come will be "YAHSHRAEL sn-ISRAEL" (Rev. 21:12), and "DOGS"
(Rev. 22:15). Yahshrael (Israel) is the only one you need to be identified with now, unless you WANT to be in the other denomination.
When you pass through the waters of the COVENANT of immersion into the Name of Yahusha, you become a fully-fledged, one-fell-swoop
YAHSRAELITE (ISRAELITE). If you follow Yahusha, then your "sect" is the "NATSARIM" (see Acts 24:5). The
12 tribes are spread abroad into all the Gentiles (Amos 9:9, Jas. 1:1), and Yahusha is calling them to Himself, searching
them out through his workers in the harvest. You may have been Middle Eastern, Mexican, Caucasian, Chinese, Aftrican-American,
Italian, Irish, Buddhist or whatever formerly, but once you pass through that water (immersion, tevila, or baptism), and vow
to obey your Creator, YAHUAH through Yahusha, you are a NEW creation. A Yahshraelite (Israelite). The UN won't
like it, and probably neither will your parents, your pastor, or your friends. Too bad, this is simply a fact of life,
and the only way to eternal life. Period. Peculiar? You betcha! The WWCG, Baptist, Amish, Catholic, Episcopal,
Jehovah Witness, Methodist, Mormons, Lutheran, Mennonite, or you-name-it -- all must come to the conclusion that their days
are over. In fact, they never had their day, in truth, using Scripture as the proof. YAHSHRAEL (ISRAEL) is the only bride of YAHUAH -- He'll
never change His mind about it either, He's especially faithful about this. Read about it sometime. Yahusha's "bride"
or wife is called "Qahal Yahshrael", Assembly of Yahshrael (Israel). That's your
denomination. You engraft (Romans 11) at your immersion into His NAME, and at that moment you accept the Name
of your Husband – YAHUAH- the Covenant represents your wedding vows. The Covenant is a marriage covenant with
the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Outside this Covenant, and this denomination, there cannot
be salvation according to the revealed Word of YAHUAH.
There will be 2 "denominations"
in the world-to-come. One of them will
be permitted to enter the gates, and the other
will have to remain outside:
YAHSHRAEL sn- ISRAEL (Rev. 21:12) These
"do His Commands" (keep the Commandments), and may eat of the Tree of Life, and enter through the gates
of the New Yerushaliyim. Mt. 15:26 refers to Yahshrael (Israel) as "the
children", and the woman not of Yahshrael (Israel) as a "dog"
-- but she had the choice to remain a "dog" or convert and become an Israelite -- as do we all. At the time she
made her request, she was a "dog" because she was not obedient to the Covenant YAHUAH made exclusively
withYahshrael (Israel), the ONLY people He has revealed His Word to (Torah, Commandments - Ps 147:19,20).
DOGS (Rev. 22:15) These stay outside, never eating of the
Tree of Life, nor entering into the gates of the New Yahrushaliyim (sn- Jerusalem). Why? They do NOT "do
His Commands" (keep the Commandments). They may be "religious," but may follow a made-up "way"
which is about (no obedience) Messiah, but not the correct way. Satan "believes," but won’t obey.
If we can make up our own way, like believe Sunday is the Sabbath, then what Cain did (offering what he pleased) should have
been acceptable — should YAHUAH apologize to Cain? If someone tells you that you DON'T NEED TO
OBEY the Covenant, the 10 Commandments, does that mean they are of Yahshrael (Israel),
or the DOGS? We should be able to discern them by their fruit
(works) and teachings.
One program for Salvation is given by THE CREATOR,
and yet there are thousands of other programs invented by men, which intend
to be correct, but are not.Then if you really want to "peel the onion" of lies and check out the
true meaning of the many traditions we’ve adapted, check out Lew White’s book "Fossilized Customs" at
That's all there is; 2 denominations. So the choice should be
easy for us.
