Jesus wouldn’t know “Jesus”!

Many people think that Jesus is coming back to save them, and they make prayers to “Jesus” daily.  It might come as a surprise to these people that Jesus wouldn’t even know “Jesus.”  If he were to return in the flesh, he would not even respond to the name “Jesus.”  His name was, in fact, Y’hoshua, pronounced Ya-ho’-shua, and the changing of his name to Jesus was a very unrighteous act.

Some might respond to this fact by saying that he is called Jesus merely because of transliteration from Greek to English.  However, this type of argument is in complete error.  The Greek name, Iesous, or Jesus, was assigned to Y’hoshua by those who translated the New Testament into Greek.  The words of Y’hoshua and the Apostles were originally spoken and written in Aramaic, a language much more similar to Hebrew than Greek.  In his day, Jesus Christ would have been referred to as Y’hoshua HaMashiyach (meaning simply “Y’hoshua the Messiah/Anointed”) rather than Iesous Christos, as the Greeks would have him called.  So, why “Jesus” then?  The answer lies in Greek mythology… Continue reading “Jesus wouldn’t know “Jesus”!”

Flesh & Blood, or Cracker & Grape Juice?

Origin of the Eucharist

The Eucharist (i.e. Communion) is a ritual, which has been performed in religious masses all over the world for millennia.  The ritualistic rite of eating a cracker and wine, or grape juice, has been practiced continually since Babylon under the rule of Nimrod, King of Babylon.  In the Vatican, the Pope now wears that same crown of “Mystery, Babylon the Great” and holds, “a golden cup in her hand, making all nations drunk with the wine of her fornication” (Rev 17:2-5, 18:3).  (For more comparisons between Babylon and the Vatican, check out “The Two Babylons” by Alexander Hislop)

Man shall not live by bread alone

Catholics and many religious sects are told that priests have the power to transform a cracker and wine into the flesh and blood of a man they call Jesus.  Protestants practice the same ritual but believe that the bread and wine are rather a symbol of the flesh and blood of Jesus.  Yet, the very man they think they’re reverencing by eating a piece of bread said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” (Mat 4:4; Deu 8:3)

Is Easter Holy?

Is Easter a true holiday, or holy day, in the eyes of God?  The majority of those calling themselves “Christian” think that they practice the customs of Easter in order to worship God; however, they are dead wrong

Many were brought up to believe that Easter is a magical day celebrating Jesus’ resurrection, which involved painted eggs, the Easter Bunny, and hot cross buns.  It might spoil the fun, but every tradition surrounding Easter has its roots in paganism and, in reality, has nothing to do with Jesus at all.  In fact, if one looks up “Easter” in the dictionary, they will find the word “pagan” in the definition somewhere.  For example, Webster’s defines Easter as “originally a pagan festival in honor of the Goddess of Spring, Eastre, held in April”.

Trumps Inauguration Day Oath – His Own Condemnation

Washington DC  On January 20th, the 58th Inauguration Ceremony will take place.  The day is full of traditions, including the swearing in Oath, the primary purpose of the day.  This oath is the point at which Trump swears to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States” and “preserve, protect and defend” the US Constitution.

What is an Oath?  According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary an Oath is a “formal calling upon God or a god to witness to the truth of what one says or to witness that one sincerely intends to do what one says”.  The Cambridge dictionary defines an Oath as “a serious promise that you will tell the truth or that you will do what you have said.”

What does God say about Oaths? Continue reading “Trumps Inauguration Day Oath – His Own Condemnation”

What or Who is the Firmament?

If we look to the Nelson’s Bible dictionary to answer this question it tells us that the Firmament is an “expanse of sky and space in which the stars and planets are set. God made the Firmament on the second day of creation to divide the waters that covered the earth from those which surrounded it (Gen 1:16).” and “…on the fourth day of creation God placed the stars, the sun, and the moon in the “firmament of the heavens.” (Gen 1:15-18)

What the Firmament reflects is the greatness of God who created it. Let’s take a look in God’s Word to see what it says and what all this might mean. “The Firmament shows forth His handiwork.” (Ps 19:1) And in the Day of Trouble/Tribulation, such as there never has been, God’s people will be delivered from evil, and those who are wise, shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever.” (Dan 12:1-3) It sounds like those ‘wise’ are the stars!

Y’hoshua states in Matthew 6:9, “After this manner you pray, ‘My Father, who is in Heaven, Holy is Your Name; Your kingdom come, Your Will be done, upon earth as it is in heaven… and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…” Continue reading “What or Who is the Firmament?”

The Firmament

The Firmament is spoken of in the beginning.
It is to come at the end,
so that the first becomes the last
and the last first.
It contains the Lights of Heaven.
The Greater, the Lesser and the Stars also.
Its purpose is to separate darkness from Light,
for darkness can not have with Light.

The spiritual works of the marvelous Firmament are purified with salt. They are spirits of knowledge, truth and righteousness in the Holy of Holies, forms of the living angels, forms of the light giving spirits. -DSS 4Q405 19

“Moreover the light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun, and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD binds up the breach of His people, and heals the stroke of their wound.” – Isaiah 30:26

“And after six days Jesus takes Peter, James and John… and  bringht them up into an high mountain apart, and was  transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the Sun…” – Matthew 17:1-2

Jesus said, “I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it  is day: the night is coming, when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” – John 9:4-5

“And there shall be signs in the Sun and in the Moon and in the Stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them because of fear and because of seeing those things which are coming on the earth: and then shall they see the Son of Adam coming in the clouds with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near!” – Luke 21:25-28

Jesus was the light of the world, the Sun, the light of day, and he spoke of a night that was coming. Who then are the lights by night, the Moon and the Stars? And what will they do to the wicked shepherds, the wicked hirelings in the vineyard of the LORD, and the thieves in the Temple?

An Urgent Message from the Chief Messenger

This urgent message was originally posted on November 21, 2005.  As the years have gone by it is more pertinent now than ever as the prophecy contained has been and continues to be fulfilled. I am re-posting it here, now for those who will read it and heed the warning as the Day of the Lord is at hand, even at the door. As Y’hoshua said, “Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting and drunkenness and the cares of this life and so that day comes upon you in unawareness. For as a snare it shall come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Adam.” (Luke 21:34-36)  Continue reading “An Urgent Message from the Chief Messenger”
