E. G. White, 'Prophets and Kings', p. 678

Beloved, have you noticed our new Masthead? The Bible is true and please believe. Our Earth is FLAT , The Flat Earth WITH A DOMED ROOF OVER IT! Radially bounded by a massive, icy wall called Antarctica. Earth Is Immovable!!! Earth Is Not a Ball! They have fed us innumerable 'photos' of Earth from space! Not a single one of them is a photo! They are all computer-generated images! CGIs! Copernican Theory has been fact with zero proof for millennia! The conspiracy to deceive us and take away YaHuWaH from HIS Earth has failed. Big-bang Theory! Darwinian Theory! Copernican Theory! - All Theories!! Non-facts and non-truths, have reigned over us for so long we came to believe that our Earth is a globe! Our Earth is not a globe. Dubious claims of landing on the moon have been proven to be hoaxes and lies. As NASA today is expressing the impossibility of man going to the moon as they have no answer yet of how to overcome the Van Allen Radiation Belt right above our stratosphere! Limitless Deception!

On every page of this Website, is a Major Teaching or Principle which you need to study, internalize and practice, before the End comes. We stand ready to help you in any way necessary for your spiritual maturity and readiness for the on-rushing Kingdom.

Here, we have endeavored to make available to you everything you need to make the spiritual decisions that you must make, intelligently. Our pages are not designed as 'snippets', no. We have not spared time or space. We have detailed every study. We are ofcourse sensitive to your lack of time. We also believe that you will not be at this Site if your need for Salvation is not bigger than the time needed for anything else. Therefore, please be patient as you spend time here as some of our pages are fairly lengthy. We must allow Elohiym to speak freely and to hear out His every Word.

"But the word of YaHuWaH was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; ..." YeshaYahuw 28:13.

Count Down to Shavuoth: Pentecost, Feast Of Weeks





YaHuWaH bless You and keep You and all of your loved ones. Amein.

We celebrate these two events on the same date and at the same time:
  1. The one event is the giving the Ten Commandments at Sinai
  2. The other is the Upper-Room outpouring of the Early Rain, the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit)
The two great events took place on the same date for they are the very same event. To have the Ruach haQodesh in the Soul is to have the Law printed in the Heart and vice versa. It will happen in 41 days. As we prepare to celebrate, let's make ready for the Latter Rain. It may well happen on this date!

The Church | Eden To Eternity


YaHuWaH created all. We are all His by creation. He created us free moral agents. Meaning that, we are given the freedom to decide our own destinies: whether to use our probationary time (present life), to prove our worthiness for eternal life, or otherwise. Would we want to spend eternity with One with His character or not?
Then, He embarks on wooing us, seeking to separate us from our world with the promise of eternal life with Him. If we would respond positively to the invitation, we would be His called-out ones - His Church. Called to serve Him (Help Him bring more people into the fold); to obey Him for our own good; that we may enjoy good all our days in this vale of sin, and ultimately, forever, in Heaven and Earth made new. It must be stated here in every categorical term, that Elohiym has absolutely nothing to gain or lose by our response! He loses nothing if we choose for or against Him. What we are being asked to do and be, are all for our own benefit. Still, responding to Him positively is a thing for joy to Him and to all Heaven, because the population of the citizens of the eternal kingdom has been increased with another soul of infinite worth.
When we respond positively and are accepted, we become His a second time, by redemption. To be doubly His, is the goal. The first time, we had no voice in the decision to create or procreate us. But the second time, we must choose to, by proclamation before Heaven and Earth.
But, firstly, what does church mean? A people, a group, a tribe, a building, what does the word mean?

Webster's Dictionary of American English (1828)

(An) house consecrated to the worship of Elohiym, among Natsariym; the Lords house. This seems to be the original meaning of the word. The Greek, to call out or call together, denotes an assembly or collection.
The collective body of Natsariym, or of those who profess to believe in Mashiach, and acknowledge him to be the Savior of mankind.
A particular number of Natsariym, united under one form of ecclesiastical government, in one creed, and using the same ritual and ceremonies; as the English church; the Gallican church; the Presbyterian church; the Romish church; the Greek church.
The followers of Mashiach in a particular city or province; as the church of Ephesus, or of Antioch.
The disciples of Mashiach assembled for worship in a particular place, as in a private house. Col 4.
The worshipers of YaHuWaH or the true Elohiym, before the advent of Mashiach; as the Yahuwdiy church.
The collective body of Natsariym, who have made a public profession of the Natsariym religion, and who are united under the same Pastor; in distinction from those who belong to the same Parish, or ecclesiastical society, but have made no profession of their faith.

As is evident from the foregoing, the fact that we are all Elohiym's by creation is indisputable, regardless of the bizare belief known as evolution. But YaHuWaH lays only partial claim to owning us because He created us. He wants us to choose to belong to Him. He is Love. Love cannot be decreed or coerced. It must beget love to win. Whoever one of us who then decides voluntarily to belong to Him becomes His possession. It is this possession; this inheritance, that is the Church.

How many Churches are there? There is but one Church. It comprises His people in Heaven and on Earth. His people from Adam to the day and hour of the Second-coming of YaHuWshuaH HaMashiach. It makes sense at this point to remind us all that the test we are passing through before acceptance into His Church, is the same that Angels in Heaven passed through. Those who succeeded are still in Heaven, marked for eternal life. Those who failed are here on our side of Heaven, awaiting their destruction. In the final judgment, they and humanity who reject eternal life, shall belong together and be annihilated here together. Let's be clear: it will not be by Elohiym's choice, it will be by theirs. When they reject His character, they forfeit every claim to life.

Life Or Death
  1. "For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of YaHuWaH."
  2. "But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death."
Mishlei (Proverbs) 8:35-36 RNKJV

When we say that there is ONLY one Church, which one is it? And who does it comprise of, especially earthward? Let us do a survey of history in as succinct a manner as possible. This odyssey will begin from the Garden of Eden and take us through to Eternity, starting in Heaven, and then on Earth.

The Church | In Heaven & Earth

YaHuWshuaH Leads | Church In Eden

It is of monumental risk to give eternal life to any created being. The decision to grant this monumental privilege to any created being must be preceded by rigorous testing to ensure that in every conceivable circumstance, they would not contemplate rebellion! The Angels in Heaven were tested long and hard as we are today. Those who failed may be living long by our standards - as they live today, more than 6,000 years since they were expelled from the Courts of Heaven, but their eternal life was forfeited and they await their destruction.

Adam was created, like all created beings, for eternal life. But this is subject to him passing every test of loyalty and goodness. Was Adam tested? Certainly!

Every Sabbath, YaHuWshuaH would visit Adam and his wife Chuah. They would worship Him and He would teach them things of Heaven and eternity. Angels would spend the week with them ensuring they knew about the plans of the fallen foe, Gadriy'el (Known in Heaven as Lucifer, and by us as Satan), who would seek to cause their fall and destruction. Adam was totally wise to this.

The International Calendar
Happy Adam & Wife Chuwah In Eden

Adam's tests were many. Before Chuwah, who is called Eve, was created, Adam was severely tested and he passed with flying colors. Here it is: Adam was given the chance to choose a partner from every creature in the world. Every single animal in all species were brought to him to name and possibly select a partner. Adam gave names to every creature that Elohiym created. (See Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 2:18-20). But he found none suitable for partnership! Many a today's man would have grabbed a monkey, a sheep, a goat, a gorilla for a spouse! We see men having sexual relations with animals today. It is called 'bestiality'. Once a taboo, it is now mainstream. Same was the case when homosexuals were called "queer". Not any more. They belong in the Church as recently announced by the head of Catholicism!

Regardless, homosexuality or its female type known as lesbianism is abominable. And so is bestiality. They always were abominable, and remain forever abominable.

Homosex: An Abomination
  1. "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
  2. "And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you."
  3. "And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast."
Vayiqra (Leviticus) 20:13-15 RNKJV

Adam passed his first known test. He rejected all inspite of his terrible loneliness. (See Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 2:18-20) The Creator approved and went on to create a perfect mate for Adam - "Chuwah". Regardless of all else, a woman remains the perfect mate and companion for a man. There is nothing better for a man, even by Elohiym. Elohiym could make nothing better then a woman for a man.
Sadly, Adam's love for Chuwah overwhelmed his judgment when she brought him food to eat which was forbidden food, and he knew it. In every honesty, I strongly doubt that I would done anything differently than Adam did. He fell and we fell as a result. And so, Adam and humanity proved that we could not be trusted with eternal life unless something drastic was done. The plan of Salvation was announced right there and then. Elohiym had a plan to redeem man even before Man was created.

Adam's fall was not so much as 'eating a forbidden fruit', as by preferring Satan's word to YaHuWaH's Command. The law remains: "Those who hate me love death". Those who do not prefer me, love death.

For Adam: A New World!
  1. "And YaHuWaH Elohiym said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:"
  2. "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."
  3. "Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee."
  4. "And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the day of thy life;"
  5. "Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;"
  6. "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."
  7. "And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living."
  8. "Unto Adam also and to his wife did YaHuWaH Elohiym make coats of skins, and clothed them."
  9. "And YaHuWaH Elohiym said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:"
  10. "Therefore YaHuWaH Elohiym sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken."
  11. "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 3:14-24 RNKJV

Notice in the above scripture, a catalog of firsts for Humanity! Painful firsts:

  • The Curse! Hitherto, it was all 'blessings and happiness'.
  • Enmity: Between Man and the Serpent - Satan. Between Man and Nature!
    Hostility between Man and heavenly Angels!
  • Serpents crawling, slithering, instead of flying and walking!
  • Feeling pain, the pain from piercing thorns and thistles.
  • Eating Vegetables. Hitherto, their food were "fruits, nuts, and cereals".
  • Chuah understands womanhood and child-bearing. Labor pains.
  • Adam to exercise superiority over Chuah! They were absolute equals.
  • Adam understands his origin: 'dust'. And 'death' the immediate destination!
  • Here, "Woman" was called "Chuah" - mother of all living.
  • Humanity clothed with earthly material: animal Skin! Hitherto, they were clothed with heavenly material: light, and "knew not that they were naked."
  • Experienced life outside the Garden! No longer constant "cool of the day"!
  • Tilling! Hitherto, they kept the garden. Absolutely nothing laborious. But very pleasant work of conversing with plants and animals and telling them what they wanted, and it was done.

The International Calendar
Adam & Chuah depart Eden

Here ended Man's residence in Eden. Angels guarded Eden and kept humanity out of it because, if man were allowed into Eden, he could access the fruit of life! That would have made sinful man and sin to live forever! This could not be allowed to happen.

Adam departed Eden with his wife. But, they would return to Eden. More on this later. But as we speak, Eden is safely in Heaven, being refitted for Adam and Chuah. Men have wearied themselves since, trying to figure out the place of Eden in our world today. It is not here. Its geographical location was clearly stated in Scripture. The "property and its location are two entirely different things." The Property, like the Ark of the Covenant, is in Heaven. Its location remains here.

Antediluvian Church | Adam Leads

Adam and his wife, Chuah had however developed a worship habit. They would never deviate from it. They never entertained any ill-feelings toward YaHuWaH. They understood were the blame lay. Sabbath after Sabbath, they maintained their worship schedule. It was difficult for them, having lost the physical presence of their Creator and the Angels. They were terribly lonely. And, soon, Qayin who is called "Cain", was born and quickly followed by H'avel who is called "Abel".

Qayin murders his brother Abel
Qayin murdered his Brother H'avel

The worship experience got better with the two boys and their numerous sisters. This story has been all too well told, for we know how it turned out between the first boys! It was tragic indeed. We're not retelling the story, but suffice it to say that two 'camps' emerged from that calamity: Adam's camp, the righteous; Qayin's camp, the unrighteous! Adam's camp welcomed H'avel's replacement (So to say), and he was called "Sheth". At this time, the Bible testifies, "Men began to call upon the Name of YaHuWaH".

Sheth Is Born | Worship Blooms
  1. "And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For Elohiym, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew."
  2. "And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of YaHuWaH."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 4:25-26 RNKJV

The Antediluvian Church was polarized religiously. There were the "sons of Adam", and the "sons of Qayin". From Qayin's lineage, the world's first polygamist - Lemek, the son of Methusha'el, emerged and more murderers. Adam's lineage on the other hand, remained faithful to Elohiym. From among them, we see the first man to so reach the standards of "goodness", that Elohiym could no longer bear to have him in the world, and took him into heaven, where he lives to this day. He never and will never taste death. But, not far from this, were mighty men of Elohiym. Not least of them was Noach, the son of Lemek, the son of Methuselah.

Wickedness was strong in the land. As human wickedness multiplied, so did hostility between man and animals. The more monstrous animals of their day, became so voracious and consuming men too. But Elohiym could not intervene to protect men from the beasts since it was the natural consequence of the prevailing iniquity. To make matters worse, fallen Angels goaded and taught men means of inflicting even more wickedness on their fellow men. To impel the process, the fallen Angels began having intercourse with the 'beautiful daughters of men'. The result was the birth of massive human beings called "Nephilliym". Giants and incredibly physically strong. Left alone, they had it in their abilities to totally ruin the Earth. Being genetically satanic, it was also a way of shutting the way against the Savior's possible incarnation. Satan's calculation was that if no woman without fallen-Angelic gene could be found in the world, then the Savior would not incarnate, and there would be no redemption!

Surely, Elohiym was not unaware of the plot, nor was he unmindful of the threat of total human annihilation. He had to intervene. And, at the nick of time.

Adam's | Antediluvian Church to End
  1. "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the Earth, and daughters were born unto them,"
  2. "That the sons of Elohiym saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose."
  3. "And YaHuWaH said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years."
  4. "There were giants in the Earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of Elohiym came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."
  5. "And Elohiym saw that the wickedness of man was great in the Earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."
  6. "And it repented YaHuWaH that he had made man on the Earth, and it grieved him at his heart."
  7. "And YaHuWaH said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the Earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them."
  8. "But Noah found favour in the eyes of YaHuWaH."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 6:1-8 RNKJV

The Antediluvian Church, could be described as an abject failure. A world full of men and women, who heard unadulterated truth from 'first-hand' sources, who could literally see Elohiym's work still in their freshness, could only produce eight souls!

Noach | Builds the Ark
  1. "The Earth also was corrupt before Elohiym, and the Earth was filled with violence."
  2. "And Elohiym looked upon the Earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the Earth."
  3. "And Elohiym said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the Earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the Earth."
  4. "Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch."
  5. "And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits."
  6. "A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it."
  7. "And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the Earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the Earth shall die."
  8. "But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee."
  9. "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female."
  10. "Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the Earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."
  11. "And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them."
  12. "Thus did Noah; according to all that Elohiym commanded him, so did he."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 6:11-22 RNKJV

The Ark during the Deluge & Noah's flood.
Noach's Ark riding the Storm

Again, we do not need to retell all of the story. The world was destroyed. Everything that was not in the Ark perished. But, we must recognize that among those in the Ark, someone had the 'nephillic' gene! But, clearly not among Noach's sons. One of the daughters-in-law had the dreaded 'gene'. This was how, the post-flood or postdiluvian world began producing super-giants like Og, the King of Bashan (13+ feet tall!) and Goliath of Gath all over again. Still, it was clear, that the rate of their regeneration was severely diminished. And they were restricted to none Yahuwdiy tribes.

When Noach and his family exited the Ark after 150 days of boarding and sailing on the greatest storm the world had ever seen or ever will see, the end of the Antediluvian (Adam's) Church was accomplished.
It must be remembered that this was the first time rain ever fell on Earth. That deluge was the first ever rainfall on Earth. After the deluge, Elohiym made a Covenant with Noach, promising that as long as the law of day and night remained, the world will never again be overwhelmed by the likes of this deluge. The Rainbow remains the token of this Covenant to this very day. YaHuWaH is faithful.

Noach Leads the Church

The Antediluvian Church began with two human beings: Adam and Chuah. And, in no time, the world was populated abundantly. The Postdiluvian Church has three couples who were prime procreators: the families of Shem, Cham and Yapheth the three sons of Noach.

In no time at all, the beautiful story of the salvation of Noach's family was marred. Satan, did not slouch off smarting from his utter defeat in the fact of flood. The Nephilliym whom he had labored to bring into the world, who would have helped him claim every human as being in rebellion against YaHuWaH, and therefore should entitle him to claims of ownership of the world, were wiped out. But, there are only eight people to focus on. Surely, he could very easily overwhelm them and dispossess Elohiym of His people and then he Gadriy'el, Satan, would be justified in claims of ownership of the world.

Again, we shall not be re-litigating the ensuing events. But, Noach and his family and the numerous animals, relied on the food aboard the Ark for the one hundred and fifty days of the Flood. When they disembarked from the Ark, there was nothing to see but devastation. All plants and animals were destroyed. Noach was not one to bemoan the situation, because he knew and fully understood why. After all he negotiated the pre-flood events with YaHuWaH. He built the Ark. He went to work to replant the Earth!

In our journey across the Postdiluvian Church, we should approach it in a way to make a demarcation between the Flood survivors and the Yahuwdiy Church. This is so because, the Church did not begin as Yahuwdiy. No, it did not, because the first ever Yahuwdiy was yet to be born. Noach was not Yahuwdiy and neither were his Sons. Now let us reacquaint ourselves with the founding Covenant for this Church built around Noach.

The Covenant
  1. "And Elohiym blessed Noach and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the Earth."
  2. "And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the Earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the Earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered."
  3. " Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things."
  4. "But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat."
  5. "And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man."
  6. "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of Elohiym made he man."
  7. "And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the Earth, and multiply therein."
  8. "And Elohiym spake unto Noach, and to his sons with him, saying,"
  9. "And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;"
  10. "And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the Earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the Earth."
  11. "And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the Earth."
  12. "And Elohiym said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:"
  13. "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the Earth."
  14. "And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the Earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:"
  15. "And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh."
  16. "And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between Elohiym and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the Earth."
  17. "And Elohiym said unto Noach, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the Earth."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 9:1-17 RNKJV

Let's note a couple of very important markers here:

  • For the first time, Humanity is given the permission to eat flesh foods. Hitherto, they never ate animals even though they would kill animals for sacrifices and for skin (clothing).
  • Man is not permitted to eat blood.
  • The judgment for murder is the death of the murderer. It is blood for blood; any other judgment was and remains contrary to the will of Elohiym. Any animal that kills a man must be killed! The life of a human being is too valuable for any lesser restraint against murder.
  • Man beheld the 'Rainbow' for the first time. The first time the rainbow appears outside of Heaven. From eternity, a rainbow has always arched the Throne of the Universe.
The Career of Transgression Resumes
  1. "And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Cham, and Yapheth: and Cham is the father of Canaan."
  2. "These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole Earth overspread."
  3. "And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard"
  4. "And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent."
  5. "And Cham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without."
  6. "And Shem and Yapheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness."
  7. "And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him."
  8. "And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren."
  9. "And he said, Blessed be YaHuWaH Elohiym of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant."
  10. "Elohiym shall enlarge Yapheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant."
  11. "And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 9:18-28 RNKJV

Noach did not make any other children. He lived for nine hundred and fifty years. But, he was a farmer. He supported his parents greatly in farming pre-flood. But, even in his great industry, Satan found a weakness to trip him up. His vine yard bloomed and wine was pressed. Fresh wine, which they had not had in one hundred fifty days plus the time it took for the vine to grow and ripen, made for too much celebration. It was over the top. The Patriarch got drunk and was left naked in his tent! Being the first to see him naked, Cham his youngest son, rather than show respect to his father, went jesting! Shem took control of the situation with the support of Yapheth, Noach's eldest Son. The consequence to Cham was infinite. Forever, he would be servant to his brothers and would never amount to much ever again.

The Church was under relentless satanic attacks. Satan had landed two devastating punches: "drunkenness", "dishonor to parent"! Transgressions of the eternal law. But the blessing given during the proclamation of the Covenant with Noach, would not be annulled. The three boys and their wives began replenishing the Earth.

They grew in numbers and strength; spoke one language. Relentless, Satan reminded them that they barely survived Elohiym in the Flood, and that they would be wise to ensure that if Elohiym would try it again, He should fail. What's happening here is that Satan first got them to distrust YaHuWaH's promise in the Rainbow. Believing Satan, that YaHuWaH's promise in the Rainbow was only words, the same sin committed in Eden by Adam and Chuah, the Church went on to attempt to thwart a non-existent threat by Elohiym, they decided to build a tower with its top reaching the gate of heaven! We call it the 'tower of babel'. It did not end well. They had a mighty man named Nimrod - fully in Satan's control, calling the shots then.

At this same time, YaHuWaH was working relentlessly too to avert the disaster. Shem and his descendants notably, Eber, Chanok called Enoch, worked with Elohiym and preached the gospel to the world in a futile effort to stay the tide of evil. Eber's son Peleg was born at the time of the 'babel' disaster. Babel was where Elohiym created something new! Languages. In order to peacefully frustrate the 'tower' project, YaHuWaH confused them by introducing languages to little groups. Only a few groups could understand each other. Confusion became the order of the day. The project was abandoned because coordination became impossible. Those who could understand each other went in same direction. Others went in their own directions and so men were spread over the Earth. The surface of the Earth was one contiguous land mass. Elohiym broke up the surface and pushed the pieces apart to form what we now call Continents. See Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 10.

"Babel", "Babylon" became the synonym for "Confusion". Whereever in the Bible the word is mentioned, it is a reference to this event and connotes the 'confusion' prevailing in the world, especially the religious world.

The End of Noach's Church
  1. "Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."
  2. "So YaHuWaH scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the Earth: and they left off to build the city."

  21. "Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Avram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot."
  22. "And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees."
  23. "And Avram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Avram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah."
  24. "But Sarai was barren; she had no child."
  25. "And Terah took Avram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Avram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 11:7-31 RNKJV

The Call of Avram the son of Terach marked the end of the Church built around the Patriarch Noach. We can now see the acts of the Ruach haQodesh - the Set-apart Spirit of YaHuWaH in the advancement of the Church of Elohiym.

Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 11:7-31 RNKJV

352 years after the Flood, Avram was born to Terach in 1996 BC. He left his father's house to live with Eber the Son of Shem and his family for many years. Terach, Avram's father was the Commander of Nimrod's Army. And you could not hold that office without total loyalty to Nimrod's religion and deities! Nimrod eventually became the 'Sun god' himself according to pagan lore! The idolatry of Terach drove Avram away from his family. When he intimitated his Father of his imminent departure, his Father elected to also depart Ur, in the hope of salvaging his own soul also. The journey would be long. They stopped in Haran. And while there, Terach died, and was buried there.

Avram resumed the journey to the place his Elohiym had purposed to foster a pure religion, relatively free from the prevailing idolatry. Avram married Sarai. Sarai was beautiful but barren. The call of Avram to leave Ur of the Chaldees was the end of the era of the Postdiluvian (or Noach's) Church, thereby ushering in the Yahuwdiy Church, at the foundation of which was Avram. Here is the Call of Avram:

YaHuWaH Calls Avram | Yahuwdiy Church Inaugurated
  1. "Now YaHuWaH had said unto Avram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:"
  2. "And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:"
  3. "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the Earth be blessed."
  4. "So Avram departed, as YaHuWaH had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Avram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran."
  5. "And Avram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came."
  6. "And Avram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land."
  7. "And YaHuWaH appeared unto Avram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto YaHuWaH, who appeared unto him."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 12:1-7 RNKJV

Avraham entertains YaHuWaH & Angels
Avraham entertains YaHuWaH & Angels

The call of Avram and the renewal of the Covenant with him effectively ended Noach's Church. Avram became the first ever Ivriy (Hebrew) to walk the Earth. YaHuWaH gave Avram and his household a language different than the language spoken in his father Terach's house, and which came with them from 'babel'. Amazing! It may be said here that the "Ivriy" language was the language employed at Creation. It was created even before 'Light and darkness'. See Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 1:1 - Eth Cepher Version. At Babel, it was not assigned to any of the "newly minted tribes".

First Yahuwdiy (Jew)
  1. "And there came one that had escaped, and told Avram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eschol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Avram."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 14:13 RNKJV

The Church built around Avram thrived long. His influence as seen in the text above was far-reaching. His religion and principles rubbed off on tribes like the Amorites, and a host of others. Elohiym gave him favor in the sight of all and he had enormous respect; such respect as kings and national leaders envied. Yet he was not a king; if anything, he was a stranger in the land. This was as far as the natives and surrounding cultures believed. But Avram knew differently. He built, and occupied knowing that his posterity would possess the land. Avram was aware that his family would first spend time in Mitsrayim (Egypt) and would return after the 4th generation. He believed Elohiym.

Avram's wife Sarai, long barren, eventually had a son and named him Yitshaq who is called Isaac. But before this, she had persuaded her husband to take her house-maid Hagar, the Mitsriy (Egyptian) girl, and make children for them. This turned out as we now know, to be not the wisest decision in history. But, by this plan, Avram had a son before Yitshaq; he was named Ishma'el. Satan's intent here was to inject the curse of Cham into the lineage that would breed the Savior! This was why he caused the breeding of the Nephiliym. "Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 10:6 [The Eth CEPHER] (6) And the sons of Cham; Kush, and Mitsrayim (Egypt) , and Put, and Kena`an.". But he would be frustrated at every turn. Avram would have his Covenant son by his wife Sarah.

The Covenant
  1. "After these things the word of YaHuWaH came unto Avram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Avram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward."
  2. "And Avram said, Sovereign YaHuWaH, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?"
  3. "And Avram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir."
  4. "And, behold, the word of YaHuWaH came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir."
  5. "And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be."
  6. "And he believed in YaHuWaH; and he counted it to him for righteousness."
  7. "And he said unto him, I am YaHuWaH that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it."
  8. "And he said, Soverign YaHuWaH, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?"
  9. "And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon."
  10. "And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not."
  11. "And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Avram drove them away."
  12. "And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Avram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him."
  13. "And he said unto Avram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;"
  14. "And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance."
  15. "And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age."
  16. "But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full."
  17. "And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces."
  18. "In the same day YaHuWaH made a covenant with Avram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:"
  19. "The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,"
  20. "And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,"
  21. "And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 15:1-21 RNKJV

The parameters of the Covenant were not complete in the vision above. And so, Elohiym will necessarily return to furnish Avram with the outstanding parameters. Every Covenant has two sides: The deliverables by Elohiym and the deliverables by Man. The Token too, was missing. So, let's make them up in the next vision.

Avraham | YaHuWaH Breathes Life into Avram
  1. "And when Avram was ninety years old and nine, YaHuWaH appeared to Avram, and said unto him, I am El-Shaddai; walk before me, and be thou perfect."
  2. "And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly."
  3. "And Avram fell on his face: and Elohiym talked with him, saying,"
  4. "As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations."
  5. "Neither shall thy name any more be called Avram, but thy name shall be Avraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee."
  6. "And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee."
  7. "And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be an Elohiym unto thee, and to thy seed after thee."
  8. "And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their Elohiym."
  9. "And Elohiym said unto Avraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations."
  10. "This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised."
  11. "And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you."
  12. "And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed."
  13. "He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant."
  14. "And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant."
  15. "And Elohiym said unto Avraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be."
  16. "And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her."
  17. "Then Avraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?"
  18. "And Avraham said unto Elohiym, O that Ishmael might live before thee!"
  19. "And Elohiym said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him."
  20. "And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation."
  21. "But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 17:1-21 RNKJV

The Covenant is now complete. Avram is now Avraham. Notice YaHuWaH's breath (-ah-) added to elevate the Man's status before heaven and Earth. Avraham's status is sealed for ever. What a privilege was his. Even in his "great age", he would have his own son by his own Wife who at this time was 90 years old. Yitshaq was born under the Covenant. Ishma'el was born before, and outside the Covenant.

Yitshaq married Rebecca, as we remember, in very special circumstances. Herculean efforts were made by Eliezer, Avraham's servant in the process of making sure that Yitshaq's wife must be a woman that will help him ensure the sustenance of the Covenant. That was crucial. She was beautiful, and like her mother-in-law, barren. But, she cried for Yitshaq's prayer on her behalf. He responded and she subsequently conceived and gave birth to twin boys: Esau and Ya'aqov. The story of the two boys would become legendary in many senses. Esau the older ended up losing his birthright as many of us do today. We accept morsels - red porridge from Satan and hand over our eternal lives!

Ya'aqov inherited the Avrahamic Covenant. His grand-father's influence had enabled the Church to make great in-roads into neighboring cultures. But, YaHuWaH remained focused on the "special tribe" he promised Avraham that He will create. Not long after the birthright tussle with his elder brother, the victory in which was facilitated by their mother Rebecca, Ya'aqov was forced into exile to save his life from his apopleptic brother. We need to understand the circumstance here faced by Ya'aqov. Esau was the one who took on the Mighty Nimrod and killed him in a one-on-one combat. Esau was therefore himself fearsome. Like Nimrod, Esau was a mighty hunter.

In Padan-aram, his mother, Rebecca's hometown, he was sheltered by his Uncle Laban's family. He ended up marrying two of his uncle's daughters: Leah and Rachel in very treacherous circumstances as we can all remember all too well. Each of the two girls entered Ya'aqov's life with a maid. So, Ya'aqov had four women in his household. As the story went, he eventually had all four as wives. They all made children for him. Ya'aqov raised a large family of 12 boys and a daughter Diynah. The boys became the foundation of the twelve tribes of Yisra'el. But who is Yisra'el?

During his return journey from Padan-aram to Canaan to his father's house, burdened by the dread of his elder brother's wrath, but determined to go on because of the infernal treachery of his father-in-law, and because Elohiym had ordered him to leave, Ya'aqov encountered a "stranger" during the night at a resting place by the river "Yabbok". The "stranger" was none other than Elohi-Y'isra'El! Let's watch the encounter in the text below. And how his Covenant name was given. It was Elohiym who named Yitshaq the son of Avraham as He did Avraham himself. He would name Ya'aqov also. There is a pattern developing. Elohiym names His people. He named us "Natsariym", not "Christians"!

Ya'aqov Becomes Yisra'el (Yashar'el)
  1. "And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Yabbok."
  2. "And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had."
  3. "And Ya'aqov was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day."
  4. "And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Ya'aqov's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him."
  5. "And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me."
  6. "And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Ya'aqov."
  7. "And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Ya'aqov, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with Elohiym and with men, and hast prevailed."
  8. "And Ya'aqov asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there."
  9. "And Ya'aqov called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen Elohiym face to face, and my life is preserved."
  10. "And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh."
Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 32:22-31 RNKJV

The Church became large and so large that at the time of the journey to Mitsrayim (Egypt), they numbered Seventy souls.

Church Departs For Egypt
  1. "AND Yashar'el took his journey with all that he had, and came to Be`er Sheva, and offered sacrifices unto the ELOHIYM of his father Yitschaq."
  2. "And ELOHIYM spoke unto Yashar'el in the visions of the night, and said, Ya'aqov, Ya'aqov. And he said, Here am I."

Yisra'el Returns to the Promised Land

It is not the purpose of this work to detail the experiences of the Yahuwdiy Church in Mitsrayim (Egypt). But, four hundred years was quite a long time to squat in a strange land. Their arrival there was greatly facilitated by the providence that turned treachery into a blessing. They had sold their youngest brother, Yahuwceph into slavery. He ended up in Mitsrayim, suffered, was subsequently elevateed by providence into the second highest office in the land. He became the head of the government. Pharaoh, the king received them with open arms. The people too. They settled in Goshen, near the mitsriym delta, a very fertile part of the Country. But as time progressed, the Pharaoh passed on, and so did Yahuwceph. The time inevitably came when there was no one who cared about how Yashar'el ended up in the land and the good they brought. All that stared the natives in the face, was the potential threat of sabotage these hordes of strangers could cause, particularly in a war. Official policy was made to suppress them, and get them under absolute control. Untold suffering was the eventual consequence. This eventually constituted the trigger for heavens action to liberate them.

Elohiym raised Mosheh and put him through among the most rigorous training to prepare him for one the greatest tasks any human before him and since after him, has ever been called upon to undertake: to lead the people of Elohiym, a whole nation of men, women, children, cattle, and cargo on foot out from one country, under fire, to another, equally under fire, with next to no serious physical preparations or provisions, let alone armaments!

The journey would take forty years to accomplish. But we need a bit of a feel of how dire things were for the Church at this time and what YaHuWaH did to set them free.

Mosheh Recieves His Commission
  1. "NOW Mosheh kept eth-the flock of Yithro his father in law, the priest of Midyan: and he led eth-the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of ELOHIYM, even to Chorev."
  2. "And the Angel of YaHuWaH appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a thorn bush: and he looked, and, behold, the thorn bush burned with fire, and the thorn bush was not consumed."
  3. "And Mosheh said, I will now turn aside, and see eth-this great sight, why the thorn bush is not burnt."
  4. "And when YaHuWaH saw that he turned aside to see, ELOHIYM called unto him out of the midst of the thorn bush, and said, Mosheh, Mosheh. And he said, Here am I."
  5. "And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off your shoes from off your feet, for the place whereon you stand is holy ground."
  6. "Moreover he said, I am the ELOHAI of your father, the ELOHAI of Avraham, the ELOHAI of Yitschaq, and the ELOHAI of Ya'aqov. And Mosheh hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon ELOHIYM."
  7. "And YaHuWaH said, I have surely seen eth-the affliction of my people which are in Mitsrayim, and have heard eth-their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know eth-their sorrows;"
  8. "And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Mitsriym, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Kena`aniym, and the Chittiym, and the Emoriym, and the Perizziym, and the Chivviym, and the Yevuciym."
  9. "Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Yashar'el is come unto me: and I have also seen eth-the oppression wherewith the Mitsriym oppress them."
  10. "Come now therefore, and I will send you unto Phar'oh, that you may bring forth my people eth-the children of Yashar'el out of Mitsrayim."
  11. "And Mosheh said unto ELOHIYM, Who am I, that I should go unto Phar'oh, and that I should bring forth eth-the children of Yashar'el out of Mitsrayim?"
  12. "And he said, Certainly I will be with you; and this shall be a sign unto you, that I have sent you: When you have brought forth eth-the people out of Mitsrayim, ye shall serve eth-ELOHIYM upon this mountain."
  13. "And Mosheh said unto ELOHIYM, Behold, when I come unto the children of Yashar'el, and shall say unto them, The ELOHAI of your fathers has sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?"
  14. "And ELOHIYM said unto El-Mosheh, EHAYAH ASHER EHAYAH: (I AM THAT I AM) and he said, Thus shall you say unto the children of Yashar'el, EHAYAH (I AM) has sent me unto you."
  15. "And ELOHIYM said moreover unto El-Mosheh, Thus shall you say unto the children of Yashar'el, YaHuWaH ELOHAI of your fathers, the ELOHAI of Avraham, the ELOHAI of Yitschaq, and the ELOHAI of Ya'aqov, has sent me unto you: this is my name forever, and this is my mention unto all generations."
  16. "Go, and gather eth-the elders of Yashar'el together, and say unto them, YaHuWaH ELOHAI of your fathers, the ELOHAI of Avraham, of Yitschaq, and of Ya'aqov, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen eth-that which is done to you in Mitsrayim:"
  17. "And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Mitsrayim unto the land of the Kena`aniym, and the Chittiym, and the Emoriym, and the Perizziym, and the Chivviym, and the Yevuciym, unto a land flowing with milk and honey."
  18. "And they shall hearken to your voice: and you shall come, you and the elders of Yashar'el, unto the king of Mitsrayim, and ye shall say unto him, YaHuWaH ELOHAI of the Ivriym has met with us: and now let us go, we beseech you, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to YaHuWaH ELOHAYNU."
  19. "And I am sure that the king of Mitsrayim will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand."
  20. "And I will stretch out eth-my hand, and smite eth-Mitsrayim with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go."
  21. "And I will give eth-this people favour in the sight of the Mitsriym: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:"
  22. "But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourns in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil eth-the Mitsriym."
Shemoth (Exodus) 3:1-22. (The Eth CEPHER)

A few things to note here. This was Mosheh's first encounter with Elohiym. Unlike us, who take nothing seriously, Mosheh here showed his thoroughness in everything. In verse 13, he calls Elohiym by his title: "Elohiym", and asks, "when I come unto the children of Yashar'el, and shall say unto them, The ELOHAI of your fathers has sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?"

Today, we seem to make no issue between a 'title' and a 'name'. Mosheh knew the difference, and thanks to him, we know now, our Father's name: "YaHuWaH". Today's so-called spiritual leaders have no such perception and could't even care less! Speaks volumes of the character of their pretensions!

Another thing to note is: Mosheh knew well what the Church was going through in Mitsrayim. So did Elohiym. None needed to be briefed as to the facts of the case. However, the deliverance of the Church would not be without a "Mighty Hand". No amount of persuasion, or platitude would accomplish it.
As we all know, plague after plague pounded Mitsrayim, but Pharaoh Ra'amses would not budge. YaHuWaH was not surprised. He had forwarned Mosheh of Pharaoh's certain intransigence. But, Pharaoh would have no choice or opinion in the matter when the clock chimes the hour when Yashar'el must depart Mitsrayim (Egypt). Again, let YaHuWaH speak.

The Exodus. Yisra'el leaves Egypt
Yashar'el leaves Mitsrayim.
Breaking Pharaoh's Back
  1. "AND YaHuWaH said unto Mosheh, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Phar'oh, and upon Mitsrayim; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether."
  2. "Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold."
  3. "And YaHuWaH gave the people eth-favour in the sight of the Mitsriym. Moreover the man Mosheh was very great in the land of Mitsrayim, in the sight of Phar'oh's servants, and in the sight of the people."
  4. "And Mosheh said, Thus says YaHuWaH, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Mitsrayim:"
  5. "And all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim shall die, from the firstborn of Phar'oh that sits upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts."
  6. "And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Mitsrayim, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it anymore."
  7. "But against any of the children of Yashar'el shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that YaHuWaH puts a difference between the Mitsriym and Yashar'el."
  8. "And all these your servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get you out, and all the people that follow you: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Phar'oh in a great anger."
  9. "And YaHuWaH said unto Mosheh, Phar'oh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Mitsrayim."
  10. "And Mosheh and Aharon did eth-all these wonders before Phar'oh: and YaHuWaH hardened eth-Phar'oh's heart, so that he would not let eth-the children of Yashar'el go out of his land."
Shemoth (Exodus) 11:1-10. (The Eth CEPHER)

In Shemoth (Exodus) 12, YaHuWaH institutes the Passover. The great events of the last few days and the imminent event deserved a great memorial. It should never be forgotten forever. It was one of those very rare times when YaHuWaH made the world know that humanity does not own the Earth; He is its Creator and Owner. While Yisra'el was doing the Passover, that night, calamity befell the Mitsrayim (Egyptians).

The Church Departs For Eretz Yashar'el
  1. "And it came to pass, that at midnight YaHuWaH smote all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim, from the firstborn of Phar'oh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle."
  2. "And Phar'oh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Mitsriym; and there was a great cry in Mitsrayim; for there was not a house where there was not one dead."
  3. "And he called for Mosheh and Aharon by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Yashar'el; and go, serve eth- YaHuWaH, as ye have said."
  4. "Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also."
  5. "And the Mitsriym were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men."
  6. "And the people took eth-their dough before it was leavened, their kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders."
  7. "And the children of Yashar'el did according to the word of Mosheh; and they borrowed of the Mitsriym jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:"
  8. "And YaHuWaH gave the people eth-favour in the sight of the Mitsriym, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled eth-the Mitsriym."
  9. "And the children of Yashar'el journeyed from Ra`amcec to Cukkoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children."
Shemoth (Exodus) 12:29-37 (The Eth CEPHER)

Forty years went by before the Church finally arrived the Promised Land. Sadly, Mosheh did not make it with them across the Yarden (Jordan River). He handed over to Joshuah at Mount Nebo, died and was buried there by YaHuWaH himself. Till date, No human knows where Mosheh was buried. However, we would learn later that after burying Mosheh, YaHuWshuaH would return to raise him from the grave and return to heaven with him. Mosheh lives till this day. See Yahuwdah (Jude) 1:9; MattithYahuw 17:3-4.

Before letting His People into the Promised Land, it was necessary as HIS manner has been, for YaHuWaH to renew His Covenant with His Church. Only, this time, He would speak to the entire Church, not through a Prophet or Preacher. And, Sinai was the venue; the same mountain where Mosheh encountered the "burning bush". Mosheh prepared the people specially for this super-special event. And YaHuWaH came upon Sinai. Hear His voice:

YaHuWaH Speaks to Yisra'el.
  1. "AND ELOHIYM spoke eth all these words, saying,"
  2. "I am YaHuWaH ELOHAYKA, which have brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage."
  3. "You shall have no other elohiym before me."
  4. "You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the Earth beneath, or that is in the water under the Earth:"
  5. "You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I YaHuWaH ELOHAYKA am a jealous EL, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;"
  6. "And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and guard my commandments."
  7. "You shall not take eth-the name of YaHuWaH ELOHAYKA in vain; for YaHuWaH will not hold him guiltless eth that takes eth-his name in vain."
  8. "Remember eth-the day of the Shabbath, to keep it holy."
  9. "Six days shall you labour, and do all your work:"
  10. "But the seventh day is the Shabbath of YaHuWaH ELOHAYKA: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates:"
  11. " For in six days YaHuWaH made eth-the heavens and eth-the Earth, eth-the sea, and eth-all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YaHuWaH blessed eth-the day of Shabbath, and hallowed it."
  12. "Honour eth-your father and eth-your mother: that your days may be long upon the land which YaHuWaH ELOHAYKA gives you."
  13. "You shall not kill."
  14. "You shall not break wedlock."
  15. "You shall not steal."
  16. "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour."
  17. "You shall not lust after your neighbour's house, you shall not lust after your neighbour's woman, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is your neighbour's."
Exodus 20:1-21 (The Eth CEPHER)

Yisra'el responded with awe and vehemence:

The Yahuwdiy Church's Covenant Response
  1. "And all the people saw eth-the thunderings, and eth-the lightnings, and eth-the noise of the shofar, and eth-the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off."
  2. "And they said unto Mosheh, Speak with us, and we will hear: but let not ELOHIYM speak with us, lest we die."
  3. "And Mosheh said unto the people, Fear not: for ELOHIYM is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not."
  4. "And the people stood afar off, and Mosheh drew near unto the thick darkness where ELOHIYM was."
Shemoth (Exodus) 20:18-21 (The Eth CEPHER)

Sadly their response was, shall we say, disappointing. Surely, we may have had the priviledge of hearing directly from Elohiym as they did. But by Mosheh, they extracted from Elohiym the assurance that He would henceforth speak to them through His Prophets.

The story of the Yahuwdiy Church is a well-worn story. A catalogue of transgression and rebellion and penitence and restoration. They began with Judges after Joshua's passing. Judge after Judge had to overcome rebellion to help restore Yisra'el to Elohiym's favor. When the Prophet Shemu'el, was Judge, Yisra'el decided that they had had enough of Judges; they wanted a King! As offended and aggrieved as He was, being rejected as King over Yisra'el, Elohiym authorized Shemu'El to give them a King. But before acceding to their demand, Elohiym informed them of the entitlements of the King and the drain he would constitute to their place and freedoms and rights. The people insisted that inspite of those, they would have a King. See 1 Shemu'el 8. And so, Sha'ul the son of Qiysh became the first ever human king of Yashar'el.

The royal history of the Church was a colorful one. Sha'ul was succeeded by King Dawid, then Solomon, and a great many others until King TsidiqiYahuw in whose days the Church crumbled and was taken into captivity in Babylon under King Nebuchadnezzar; and this was after their brethren in the North had gone through similar path, but headed to Assyria in the days of Sennacherib the King of Assyria. At this time, the magnificent Temple built by King Solomon was destroyed and the city too. The people of the surrounding nations would move in and occupied the now abandoned state of Yisra'el, the Church's home. See 2 Melekiym (Kings) 24, 25.

But Yisra'el will return to Yerushalayim. YaHuWaH had guaranteed this through His Prophet YirmeYahuw.

Return | Promised
  1. "And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve eth-the king of Babel seventy years."
  2. "And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babel, and that nation, says YaHuWaH, for eth-their iniquity, and the land of the Kasdiym, and will make it perpetual desolations."
YirmeYahuw 25:11-12 (The Eth CEPHER)

Return | Promise Reassured
  1. "For thus says YaHuWaH, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babel I will visit you, and perform eth-my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place."
  2. "For I know eth-the thoughts that I think toward you, says YaHuWaH, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
  3. "Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you."
  4. "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."
  5. "And I will be found of you, says YaHuWaH: and I will turn away eth-your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, says YaHuWaH; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive."
YirmeYahuw 29:10-14 (The Eth CEPHER)

As the time appointed for the Church to return home to Yerushalayim neared, the Prophet Daniy'el perceived it, confirmed it in the Cephar YirmeYahuw and decided to remind YaHuWaH of His pledge. Daniy'el was anxious for Elohiym's people to return to Yerushalayim and rebuild the Temple of YaHuWaH and the City also. And he resorted to fasting and prayer. And what a successful campaign of fasting and prayer? Hear him:

Daniy'el's Prayer
  1. "IN the first year of Dareyavesh the son of Achashverosh, of the seed of the Madai, which was made king over the realm of the Kasdiym;"
  2. "In the first year of his reign I Daniy'el understood by the cepheriym the number of the years, whereof the Word of YaHuWaH came to Yirmeyahuw the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Yerushalayim."
  3. "And I set eth-my face unto EL-ADONAI ELOHIYM, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:"
  4. "And I prayed unto YaHuWaH ELOHAI, and made my confession, and said, O ADONAI, the great and dreadful EL, guarding the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that guard his commandments;"
  5. "We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from your precepts and from your judgments:"
  6. "Neither have we hearkened unto your servants the prophets, which spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land."
  7. "O ADONAI, righteousness belongs unto you, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Yahuwdah, and to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, and unto all Yashar'el, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither you have driven them, because of their transgression that they have transgressed against you."
  8. "O ADONAI, to us belongs confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you."
  9. "To ADONAI ELOHAYNU belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;"
  10. "Neither have we obeyed the voice of YaHuWaH ELOHAYNU, to walk in his Torah, which he set before us by his servants the prophets."
  11. "Yea, all Yashar'el have transgressed eth-your Torah, even by departing, that they might not obey your voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the Torah of Mosheh the servant of ELOHIYM, because we have sinned against him."
  12. "And he has confirmed eth-his words, which he spoke against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven has not been done as has been done upon Yerushalayim."
  13. "As it is written in the Torah of Mosheh, eth all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer eth-before YaHuWaH ELOHAYNU, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand your Truth."
  14. "Therefore has YaHuWaH watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for YaHuWaH ELOHAYNU is righteous in all his works which he does: for we obeyed not his voice."
  15. "And now, O ADONAI ELOHAYNU, that has brought eth-your people forth out of the land of Mitsrayim with a mighty hand, and has gotten you renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly."
  16. "O ADONAI, according to all your righteousness, I beseech you, let your anger and your fury be turned away from your city Yerushalayim, your holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Yerushalayim and your people are become a reproach to all that are about us."
  17. " Now therefore, O ELOHAYNU, hear the prayer of your servant, and his supplications, and cause your face to shine upon your Sanctuary that is desolate, for ADONAI'S sake."
  18. "O ELOHAI, incline your ear, and hear; open your eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by your name: for we do not present our supplications before you for our righteousnesses, but for your great mercies."
  19. "O ADONAI, hear; O ADONAI, forgive; O ADONAI, hearken and do; defer not, for your own sake, O ELOHAI: for your city and your people are called by your name."
  20. "And while I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Yashar'el, and presenting my supplication before YaHuWaH ELOHAI for the holy mountain of my ELOHIYM;"
  21. "Yea, while I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gavriy'el, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation."
  22. "And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniy'el, I am now come forth to give you skill and understanding."
  23. "At the beginning of your supplications the word came forth, and I am come to show you; for you are greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision."
  24. "Seventy weeks are determined for the people and the holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make atonement (Vayiqra 17:11; Romaiym 5:11) for iniquity, and to bring everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and the prophet, and to anoint the Holy of Holies."
  25. "Know and understand, that from the going forth of the word to return and to build Yerushalayim until Mashiach the Prince is seven weeks; and threescore and two weeks; returning to build the wide street of gold (Toviyahuw 13:17; Chizayon 21:21) in times of distress."
  26. "And after the threescore and two weeks, Mashiach is cut off, but nothing of the holy city is ruined: and the people of the prince to come the end of which is in a flood and even unto the end of the battle, devastation is determined."
  27. "And the strength of the covenant multiplies for one week: and in the middle of the week, the sacrifice and the oblation cease, and upon the end, abominations destroy, until the consummation is determined and poured over the desolation."
Daniy'el 9:1-27 (The Eth CEPHER)

The Angel Gavriy'el took time to pass on YaHuWaH's answers to Daniy'el's prayer. In doing so, we gained access to some very stunning information, most of which continue to be denied and ignored by Yahuwdiym to this day:

  • When the Judgment of the world will begin (2,300 years from the date the final decree to rebuild Yerushalayim is proclaimed; Spring 457 BC).
  • Yerushalayim shall be rebuilt, in very difficult circumstances.
  • How long it will take to finish the building and the challenges the builders will face (49 years - 7 weeks of years).
  • The probationary period given to the Yahuwdiy Church to decide if they wish to remain YaHuWaH's chosen people or not (490 years - 70 weeks of years beginning at Artaxerxes' decree. See Ezra 7).
  • The year of the beginning of Mashiach's Ministry (27 AD)
  • How long Mashiach's Ministry shall last and the year and time of His Passion (three and a half years from the Spring of 27 AD).
  • The Inauguration of the Mashiach as High Priest and the commencement of His High Priestly Ministry (At His ascension immediately after His resurrection).
  • The ushering in of Everlasting Righteousness (The constant ministerial presence of YaHuWshuaH in the Temple in Heaven immediately after His Ascension forty days after His resurrection).

YaHuWaH appointed Leaders for the Church at this time: Ezra and NechemYahuw, TsedikiYahuw, Yahuwshua the High Priest, among many others in far away lands under the Persians now; Babylon (Babel) had become history having been just overthrown by the Medo-Persians; to lead His Church back to Yerushalayim. The Persian King Cyrus was the first to authorize the release and return of the People back to Eretz Yisra'el. King Darius, the Mede, did a part. And the final piece of the decrees needed to ensure the People's freedom to return and to rebuild the City and the Temple with resources fully supplied, was made by King Artaxerxes Longimanus popularly known as "Ahasuerus" the Husband of Queen Esther in 457 BC. And so, Yisra'el returned and rebuilt the City and the Temple and this was over a 49-year period under very difficult circumstances as prophesied by the Angel Gavriy'el. The completion of the reconstruction was met by so much nostalgia, tears and ceremony. This was especially so because, there was little in the new Temple to compare it in magnificence with the one built by King Solomon.

Old & New Temples
  1. "IN the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the Word of YaHuWaH by the prophet Chaggai, saying,"
  2. "Speak now to Zerubbavel the son of She'altiy'el, governor of Yahuwdah, and to El-Yahuwsha the son of Yahuwtsadaq, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying,"
  3. "Who is left among you that saw eth-this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?"
  4. "Yet now be strong, O Zerubbavel, says YaHuWaH; and be strong, O Yahusha, son of Yahuwtsadaq, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, says YaHuWaH, and work: for I am with you, says YaHuWaH TSEVA'OTH:"
  5. "According to the eth-Word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Mitsrayim, so my RUACH remains among you: fear ye not."
  6. "For thus says YaHuWaH TSEVA'OTH; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake eth-the heavens, and eth-the Earth, and eth-the sea, and eth-the dry land;"
  7. "And I will shake eth-all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill eth-this house with glory, says YaHuWaH TSEVA'OTH."
  8. "The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says YaHuWaH TSEVA'OTH."
  9. "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, says YaHuWaH TSEVA'OTH: and in this place will I give peace, says YaHuWaH TSEVA'OTH."
Haggai 2:1-9 (The Eth CEPHER)

The glory of this physically and architecturally inferior Temple shall outshine Solomon's Temple. Because, the world shall see this house hosting the "Desire of all Nations", YaHuWshuaH the Son of Elohiym. The Church prospered mostly individually and retrogressed collectively as the Priests and Scribes corrupted the Truth in large measure throughout the rest of the probationary 490 years given to the Yahuwdiy Church. The People came under heavy spiritual burdens, got confused as to the meaning of their practices and religious rites. They lost sight of Who it was their ceremonies pointed to. And at the fullness of time, YaHuWaH sent His Son, YaHuWshuaH to illuminate the world and the Word. And when His ministry should end, the Yahuwdiy Church shall come to its end also. This would happen if they should reject the Savior, the Son of the living Elohiym.

It was in AD 34 that the rejection of the Savior and His Ministry by the Yahuwdiy Church and its members reached its climax. They had persecuted him from the very onset of His Ministry in the Spring of AD 27 and eventually murdered Him by Roman crucifixion in the Spring of AD 31. But He instructed His Qodeshiym (Saints) not to work anywhere outside Yerushalayim until told to go by the Ruach haQodesh (The Set-apart Spirit). The command did arrive immediately after the murder of the Deacon Stephen, who was stoned to death on the orders of the Sanhedrin, spear-headed by one Sha'ul of Tarsus! From AD 34 , the Gospel would go to the "nations" and the Yahuwdiym and their church would cease to be YaHuWaH's church and people. Going forward, a brand new Church, 'nation', is to be built and they shall be called "Natsariym".

Let us follow the Savior as He notifies the Yahuwdiy Church of their imminent end. He would also let Heaven and Earth know why they could no longer continue to retain their special status with YaHuWaH.

  1. "YaHuWshuaH said unto them, Did ye never read in the Scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is YaHuWaH's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? (See Tehilliym 118:22-23)"
  2. "Therefore say I unto you, The Kingdom of YaHuWaH shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof."
MattithYahuw 21:42-43 The Eth CEPHER

Yahuwdiy Church | End Sealed
  1. "O Yerushalayim, Yerushalayim, you that kill the prophets, and stone them eth which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings (See Ezra Reviy`iy 1:30), and ye would not!"
  2. "Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. (See Ezra Reviy`iy 1:33)"
  3. "For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of YaHuWaH. (See Tehilliym 118:26)"
MattithYahuw 23:37-39 (The Eth CEPHER)

Finally, it is important to note that the Church was Yahuwdiy even while it was attended by the Savior. The New Covenant had not been introduced. It will be introduced at His Death and ratified at His resurrection when He visits His Father during the morning of His resurrection. It must also be pointed out that though the New Covenant kicked in, in AD 31, the time appointed the Yahuwdiy Church would not end until AD 34. So, the Plan of Salvation had given the natural Yahuwdiym a three-and-a-half-year headstart in the New Covenant. They would have had three and a half years of masterly instructions by the Savior and developed mightily as impelled by the Set-apart Spirit for another three and a half years. And by them, so well equipped, YaHuWaH would have won the world to himself. See what twelve Shlichim (Apostles) did by evangelism. Imagine what a whole nation of men and women might have accomplished had they hidded the divine counsel. If they had, the Yahuwdiy Church would remain until the Second-coming enlarging itself by converting people from every tribe and tongue and people in the entire world. World-wide proselytizing by the Yahuwdiym was the divine Plan. If that plan had succeeded, Yerushalayim would have stood forever. No power on Earth would have been able to assail, let alone overcome her.

Yahuwdiy Destiny | Ruined
  1. "And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto me, saith YaHuWaH, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the Sabbath day, but hallow the Sabbath day, to do no work therein;"
  2. "Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Yahuwdah, and the inhabitants of Yerushalayim: and this city shall remain forever."
  3. "And they shall come from the cities of Yahuwdah, and from the places about Yerushalayim, and from the land of Benjamin, and from the plain, and from the mountains, and from the south, bringing burnt offerings, and sacrifices, and meat offerings, and incense, and bringing sacrifices of praise, unto the house of YaHuWaH."
YirmeYahuw 17:24-26 RNKJV

Is The Name Yisra'el (Israel) Biblical?

What was the Name of YaHuWaH's ancient People? We all know them as 'Israel', in the English language. Where did that come from? Recall that during Patriarch Ya'akov's encounter with YaHuWshuaH at the Yabbok River, Elohiym as a formal seal of the Covenant renewed with Ya'akov, the Patriach's name was changed to what is now known as 'Israel', as we saw above! But was this the name Elohiym gave the Patriach? Certainly not. Does it matter if it is not? Most Certainly.

You ask, 'why should I care, if the Yahuwdiym do not?'. Zeal for our Father's honor and glory should drive us through every way. He has been and is being totally ignored by the Yahuwdiym, whom the world respects as our Father's historical people. They seem to have no concerns about bearing a name of uncertain origin! Why? Some do not know; others who know, do not care! Speaks volumes of their value for their precious relationship with Elohiym. The same attitude that caused Esau to be so hated! Let us now take a not-so-deep look at this, shall we.

Consider the following:

  1. The first two letters in the Father's name in Ivriyt (Hebrew) are yod-heh, "Yod Heh".
  2. "shar" shin-resh the word for "prince" is spelt, "shin-resh".
  3. "Yasharel", yod-shin-resh-alef-lamed the word for "Prince of El" is spelt "Yod-shin-resh-alef-lamed".
  4. The name, that the Bible calls YaHuWaH's People yod-shin-resh-waw-nun, who came away from Mitsrayim (Egypt) in the Exodus is "Yasharun", spelt "Yod-shin-resh-waw-nun-sofit". Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:15; 33:5, 26.
  5. The word "Yasharun" yod-shin-resh-waw-nun, appears only three times in the Bible: Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:15; 33:5, 26. It is the word numbered H3484 in Strong's Concordance. Strong had the spelling correct as "Yod-shin-resh-waw-nun-sofit", but pronounced it "Jeshurun". Strong also translated it - "the symbolic name for Israel"! Well might we ask, 'symbolic of what'?
  6. How could "Yod-shin-resh-alef-lamed" be pronounced Israel? How did the 'alef-lamed alef lamed ' change the pronunciation of 'Yod-shin-resh yod-shin-resh'?

The "Yasher spelling is shared by both 'Yasharun' and 'Israel'". The difference between the two words is that Yasharun ends with 'waw-nun-sofit', the 'oon' sound, while 'Israel' ends with the two letters 'alef-lamed', the 'el' sound. What then happended to turn the 'Yashar' to 'Isra'?
We do not find any linguistic or biblical reason for the adulteration. We therefore hold that the name of YaHuWaH's ancient People and their modern biological decendants is Yashar'el!

Yahuwdiy Name | Forgotten
  1. And he was king in Yasharun, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Yashar'el were gathered together.
  1. There is none like unto the EL of Yasharun, who rides upon the heavens in your help, and in his excellency on the sky.

New Testament | Martyrdom of Stephen

The Stoning of Stephen
First Natsariym Martyr Stephen, Execution

The Stoning of the Deacon Stephen marked the final act in the rejection of YaHuWaH's great plan for the Yahuwdiym! On that very date, they ceased to be Elohiym's special people. A new "royal priesthood" arises on the foundation of the Shlichim (Apostles) built by YaHuWshuaH HaMashiach, our Savior. Ellen G. White describes the event in this manner:

The New Testament Ushered In
The time of the first advent and of some of the chief events clustering about the Saviour's lifework was made known by the Angel Gavriy'el to Daniy'el. “Seventy weeks,” said the Angel, “are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy.” Daniy'el 9:24. A day in prophecy stands for a year. See Numbers 14:34; Yehezki'el 4:6. The seventy weeks, or four hundred and ninety days, represent four hundred and ninety years. A starting point for this period is given: “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Yerushalayim unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks” (Daniy'el 9:25), sixty-nine weeks, or four hundred and eighty-three years. The commandment to restore and build Yerushalayim, as completed by the decree of Artaxerxes Longimanus, went into effect in the autumn of 457 BC See Ezra 6:14; 7:1, 9. From this time four hundred and eighty-three years extend to the autumn of AD 27. According to the prophecy, this period was to reach to the Messiah, the Anointed One. In A.D. 27, YaHuWshuaH at His baptism received the anointing of the Holy Spirit and soon afterward began His ministry. Then the message was proclaimed, “The time is fulfilled.” Mark 1:15.
Then, said the Angel, “He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week [seven years].” For seven years after the Saviour entered on His ministry, the gospel was to be preached especially to the Yahuwdiym; for three and a half years by Mashiach Himself, and afterward by the Apostles. “In the midst of the week He shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.” Daniy'el 9:27. In the spring of AD 31, Mashiach, the true Sacrifice, was offered on Calvary. Then the veil of the temple was rent in twain, showing that the sacredness and significance of the sacrificial service had departed. The time had come for the earthly sacrifice and oblation to cease.
The one week — seven years—ended in AD 34. Then by the stoning of Stephen the Yahuwdiym finally sealed their rejection of the gospel; the disciples who were scattered abroad by persecution “went everywhere preaching the word” (Acts 8:4); and shortly after, Saul the persecutor was converted and became Paul the apostle to the Gentiles.
Ellen G. White, 'Prophets and Kings', pp 698 -699

The Everlasting Covenant remains Everlasting. It is immutable! And it says "Obey YaHuWaH and live; disobey YaHuWaH and die!", paraphrased. So it was in Heaven before the world was made; in Eden and all the way through to today and unto eternity. However, it needs reiteration during the inauguration of new epochs. Adam was taught. He taught his descendants. Elohiym refreshed it with Noach and his family after the Flood; Elohiym refreshed it with Avraham, Yitshaq and Ya'aqov each in his turn. It is unfailing.

When it was restated at Sinai, Elohiym went into great detail and indeed printed it with His own finger on tablets of stone. On stone, it should endure for long without wearing. But even stone could not withstand the withering effects of man's gross negligence and rebellion. The basis, the center of the 'everlasting Covenant' is and remains, the "Ten Commandments". See Shemoth (Exodus) 20.

The Everlasting Covenant | Consequence of Transgression
  1. "The Earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the Torah, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant."
  2. "Therefore has the curse devoured the Earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the Earth are burned, and few men left."
YeshaYahuw 24:5-6 (The Eth CEPHER )

The Everlasting Covenant | The Promise
  1. "Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will cut an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David."
YeshaYahuw 55:3 The Eth CEPHER

The Ten Commandments
The Everlasting Covenant
Everlasting Covenant | Ten Commandments
  1. "And he was there with YaHuWaH forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments."
Shemoth (Exodus) 34:28 RNKJV

The Sabbath | Seal of The Covenant
  1. "THUS says YaHuWaH, Guard ye judgment, and do justice: for my yeshu`ah (salvation) is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed."
  2. "Blessed is the man that does this, and the son of A'dam that lays hold on it; that guards the Shabbath from polluting it, and guards his hand from doing any evil."
  3. "Neither let the son of the stranger, that has joined himself to EL - YaHuWaH, speak, saying, YaHuWaH has utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree."
  4. "For thus says YaHuWaH unto the eunuchs that guard eth-my Shabbathoth (Sabbaths), and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;"
  5. "Even unto them will I give in my house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off."
  6. "Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YaHuWaH, to serve him, and to love eth-the name of YaHuWaH, to be his servants, everyone that guards the Shabbath from polluting it, and takes hold of my covenant;"
  7. "Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all people."
  8. "ADONAI YaHuWaH which gathers the outcasts of Yashar'el says, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him."
YeshaYahuw 56:1-8 (The Eth CEPHER)

The membership of the New Testament Church, the Church of All Nations, is open to whoever is willing to be subject to the everlasting Covenant. In YeshaYahuw 56, Elohiym clarifies that whosoever from wheresoever on the face of the Earth who accepts and obeys the "Covenant", as evidenced in Sabbath-keeping, will be in the Kingdom. The converse is unfailingly true also.

New Covenant | In Ivriym (Hebrews)
  1. "But now has he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises."
  2. "For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second."
  3. "For finding fault with them, he says, Behold, the days come, says YaHuWaH, when I will cut a Renewed Covenant with the eth-house of Yashar'el and with the eth-house of Yahuwdah:"
  4. "Not according to the covenant that I cut with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Mitsrayim; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, says YaHuWaH."
  5. "For this is the covenant that I will cut with the eth-house of Yashar'el after those days, says YaHuWaH; I will put my Torah into their mind, and write it in their hearts: and I will be their ELOHIYM, and they shall be to me a people:"
  6. "And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know eth - YaHuWaH: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest."
  7. "For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their Torahless deeds will I remember no more. (See Yirmeyahuw 31:31-34)"
  8. "In that he says, A Renewed Covenant, he has made the first old. Now that which decays and waxes old is ready to vanish away."
Hebrews 8:6-13 (The Eth CEPHER)

New Covenant | In MattithYahuw
  1. "For this is my blood of the Renewed Covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."
MatttithYahuw 26:28 (The Eth CEPHER)

The New Testament Scriptures offer us another way of looking at the terms of membership of the New Church. Let us review a few of them:

Church | Membership Terms
  1. " He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not."
  2. "He came unto his own, and his own received him not."
  3. "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of YaHuWaH, even to them that believe on his name: "
  4. "Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of YaHuWaH."
Yahuwchanon 1:10-13 RNKJV

Membership | In Yahuwchanon
  1. "And as Mosheh lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:"
  2. "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life."
  3. "For YaHuWaH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Yahuwchanon 3:14-16 RNKJV

People Answer the Call to Come Into the Church
Membership | In Romans
  1. "For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, YaHuWaH sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:"
  2. "That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."
  3. "For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit."
  4. "For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace."
  5. "Because the carnal mind is enmity against YaHuWaH: for it is not subject to the law of YaHuWaH, neither indeed can be."
  6. "So then they that are in the flesh cannot please YaHuWaH."
  7. "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of YaHuWaH dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of the Messiah, he is none of his."
  8. "And if the Messiah be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness."
  9. "But if the Spirit of him that raised up YaHuWshuaH from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up the Messiah from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you."
  10. "Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh."
  11. "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live."
  12. "For as many as are led by the Spirit of YaHuWaH, they are the sons of YaHuWaH."
Romans 8:3-14 RNKJV

Absolutely anyone anywhere in the entire world is welcome into the Church. Why? YaHuWaH your Creator is calling you; invites you to make the choice to be His. True, you and I are His by virtue of the fact that He created us. But we had no choice in the decision to be created or procreated for that matter. He therefore chose to make us all free moral agents; make your own decision. He is Love; He desires only love, a service of love and therefore will never coerce the will. In the rules of engagement in the Great Controversy between 'good and evil', neither YaHuWshuaH nor the Adversary, Satan (or any demon) has authority or right to force the will of Man! Who comes in depends on who gets invited in! But all we have is the right to choose on whose side in the Great Controversy we wish to be on. Once we've made the choice, the consequences for our decision are out of our hands; the consequences are 'automatic'. If we choose YaHuWshuaH, Satan flees. But if we choose Satan, YaHuWshuaH turns away. He will not coerce or compel us!

In our scripture survey, we find that it is the one decision that makes everything else possible: Accept the Son of Elohiym; Accept His death instead of your own death; Believe in Him to save you; Receive His Set-Apart Spirit, the Ruach haQodesh, and you are reckoned in the 'Books' as a child of 'Avraham', an Yisra'Eliy indeed, a child of Elohiym; a member of His Church, His kingdom.

But before we run off thinking we could fool anyone, it is important to know that to truly have Him in the heart and soul is evidenced by and revealed in the 'works' we do. To believe in Him is to keep all of His commandments without exception. (See 1 Yahuwchanon 5:2-3) To believe in Him is to keep His Sabbaths - all Sabbaths. This is the evidence that we have him. (See Yechezkiy'el 20:12,20). But, to keep His commandments on our own by our own strength is impossible. (See Yahuwchanon 15:5). And so, to pretend to be keeping the commandments for a pass is impossible, for you are in Satan's domain and he would not allow you to get away with pretending. We need the grace of Elohiym which the Ruach who leads us will impart. Then would we have power to keep His law.

AD 34 saw this gospel spread all over the then known world like wild fire. Souls who got taught the truth and who believed were baptized into the Church. During the first Pentecost following the Savior's return to Heaven, the Church was officially commissioned when the "promise of the Father" according to the Son, arrived. On that great day, the Qodeshiym (Disciples) were all together in one accord, praying in anticipation. In that moment, the Ruach haQodesh, the Ruach YaHuWshuaH was poured upon them all and they received power. It amazed onlookers because each one of them began speaking in a tongue that enabled the onlookers who had come from all parts of the world to Yerushalayim for the Feast, to hear the gospel in their native dialects and languages, not all being Yahuwdiym. It was stunning. On that day about three thousand persons were baptized into the Church.

Baptism, by the way, is the ceremony designed to enable us publicly declare before Heaven and Earth that we have freely chosen to follow YaHuWshuaH and to serve Him only. During the ceremony we are immersed in a body of water signifying burial. You bury only the dead. This implies that we must have decided to put our old life to death. We renounce sin and sinfulness. We decide to die to 'self' and to live for YaHuWshuaH. (See Galatians 2:20). Then we are immersed in the water signifying the death of the 'old self'. And as we come up out of the water, we are indeed recreated anew. We are now a new creation in YaHuWshuaH. Old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new.

The New Life
  1. "For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto YaHuWaH."
  2. "I am crucified with the Messiah: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but the Messiah liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of YaHuWaH, who loved me, and gave himself for me."
Galatians 2:19-20 RNKJV

YaHuWshuaH | One Name Only
  1. "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Yisra'el, that by the name of YaHuWshuaH the Messiah of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom YaHuWaH raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole."
  2. "This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner."
  3. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Acts 4:10-12 RNKJV

Many are making choices and seem to have made their choices against YaHuWaH our Creator by their rejection of His Son who died to enable them live. It simply declares that they 'love death'. And there is no escaping death. If your religion or denomination or philosophy excludes the Savior, sorry friend you are doomed, and that, by your own choice!.

The Plan of Salvation, made before the foundation of the world, was laid infinitely deep, infinitely high and infinitely broad. It has room for all. Therefore choose wisely and live, both you and your loved ones. The Church continued to grow, reaching deep across the then known world in great power. Paul who oversaw the execution of Deacon Stephen turned out to be the perfect replacement for Stephen in the Ministry. He did much, led by the Ruach haQodesh to carry the gospel into the furthest reaches of Earth at that time. Paul, found himself at the receiving end of the power of evil manifested by people who had the kind of spirit which he himself had before his encounter with YaHuWshuaH on the Road to Damascus.

AD 100, the last one of the Shlichiym (Apostles), Yahuwchanon, died. He had completed his work of Ministry and equally important, the writing of the Book of Revelation and the Epistles. Shortly after their passing, prophecies which they all wrote about, began to be fulfilled. Heresies of all sorts began walking into the Church! Satan had been severely subdued since after his defeat while tempting the Savior and his woeful failure to prevent YaHuWshuaH's resurrection. The Apostles' divine strength and wisdom kept him out and restricted him to mere guerilla tactics. But this would change as soon as these stalwarts of YaHuWshuaH's Army would pass from the scene of action. And soon, the Church found herself entering an age of painful darkness now known as the 'Dark Ages'. We look at this development next.

Church | Enters Dark Age

Wikipedia | Article: Dark_Ages
Dark Ages:
The "Dark Ages" is a historical periodization traditionally referring to the Middle Ages (c. 5th - 15th century) that asserts that a demographic, cultural, and economic deterioration occurred in Western Europe following the decline of the Roman Empire.

The Apostles Kepha (Peter), Pa'al (Paul) and Yahuwchanon all predicted Apostasy that will overtake the Church. Pa'al stated that the germ of Apostasy was already active in his day. It was only being slowed down for a little season to ensure Prophecy fulfilment with respect to the event and time. (See 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 ). All must be precise.

Apostasy Predicted
  1. "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"
  2. "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called elohiym, or that is worshiped; so that he as elohiym sitteth in the temple of elohiym, shewing himself that he is elohiym."
  3. "Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?"
  4. "And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time."
  5. " For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way."
  6. "And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom YaHuWshuaH shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:"
2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 RNKJV

To ensure the salvation of souls precious to Elohiym, the purity of the Word of Elohiym is imperative. Satan knew this and knew that this was one channel he could use to sow confusion among the Qodeshiym (Saints) and hopefully divide and conquer them. Heresies began to pour into the Church. Disagreements and disputes over interpretation of the Word wreaked havoc among the flock! It wasn't getting any better with the passage of time. Instead, factions began to emerge. Some of the factions had little idea initially where their steps were taking them. But, rebellion was in the air. The Roman Empire was headed by a Caesar. The Romans ruled the world and were in charge in Yahuwdah when they oversaw the murder of the Son of Elohiym. Pilate who sentenced him to death was the Roman Governor. Rome was the capital of the empire and there saw a lot of work undertaken by many of the Qodeshiym (Saints) including some of the Shlichiym (Apostles) and Talmidiym (Disciples) to establish Natsarenity in the Capital. Their efforts bore enormous fruit. But this was not without friction, for the Romans worshiped the Sun deity and other deities.

Caesar the Emperor was also the head of the Empire's religion. In that capacity, he was called "Pontifex Maximus" which is latin for "Supreme Pontiff". He was essentially the high Priest. His office combined Political power with religious power. But time was no longer on the side of the Empire as the Power and dominance of Rome over the world was on the wane. The Prophet Daniy'el had predicted events that circumscribe the Empire many centuries before in these words:

The Rise & Fall of Empires Prophesied
  1. "In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniy'el had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters."
  2. "Daniy'el spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea."
  3. "And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another."
  4. "The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the Earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it."
  5. "And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh."
  6. "After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it."
  7. "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns."
  8. "I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great thing."
Daniy'el 7:1-8 RNKJV

Prophecy Interpreted by the Angel Gavriy'el
  1. "These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the Earth."
  2. "But the Saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever."
  3. "Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;"
  4. "And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows."
  5. "I beheld, and the same horn made war with the Saints, and prevailed against them;"
  6. "Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the Saints of the most High; and the time came that the Saints possessed the kingdom."
  7. "Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon Earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole Earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces."
  8. "And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings."
  9. "And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the Saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time."
Daniy'el 7:17-25 RNKJV

In the above Prophecy, Daniy'el foresaw the rise and fall of Empires (Beasts). It began with Babylon, then Medo-Persia, followed by Greece and finally Rome. Rome was the fourth and indescribable Beast. She was going to break up into Ten Horns which are also kingdoms, but smaller. Among the ten horns, another horn the eleventh would emerge. The last horn will be different than the first ten; It would have eyes and a mouth like a man; fatter and heftier than others; It will go to war against the original ten and successfully uproot and destroy three of them; then it would turn attention to the Qodeshiym (Saints), make war against them and overcome them! It shall speak great words against the Most High; think to change Times and Laws; and all shall be given into its hands for "a time, two times and half a time".

We are not going to try to expatiate on the above details here because we did it in this page. Please refer to it for details.

So we may proceed by saying that the rancor between the leaders of the Church in different parts of the Empire became intractable. The Bishop of the Church in Rome sought dominance which it was not entitled to in any way. Resistance led to war. He used the power of the State to subdue Bishops in charge of large swathes of the Empire. At this same time, the State itself was under enormous pressure from the barbarous Germanic hordes attacking Rome from the North. It became necessary for Caesar to abandon Rome and find safety elsewhere in the crumbling Empire where he could hopefully regroup and recover. Before his departure, he handed the City over to the Bishop of Rome. Amazingly, the Barbarians had enormous respect for the Bishop who at this time is combining religious power as Bishop and Political power as ruler of Rome. He thus also inherited the headship of the Roman pagan religion and title "Pontifex Maximus". Till this very day, he is still the "Supreme Pontiff". His victory over the Visigoths, Ostrogoths and Vandals, three of the Ten Horns, in 538 AD, cemented his place as the head of the Church in all the empire. The Emperor Justinian, at this time in exile in Constantinople made a decree declaring the Bishop of the Church in Rome the Head of all churches. The other seven horns sided with him and did not experience war. Caesar who had fled to Constantinople, never returned. And so it was, that AD 538 marked the beginning of the Dark Ages, and the beginning of first papal supremacy over the world.

The process of merging paganism with the religion of YaHuWshuaH HaMashiach was never going to produce any good. It did not. Instead, it led to the moral darkness that covered the world with falsehoods and error and rebellion against Heaven for 1,260 years beginning from 538 AD when the war ended. The period would end in 1798 AD when the Pope (Pope Pius) was taken prisoner by Napoleon Bonaparte. He died in prison in Valence, France. Napoleon abolished the Papacy. Sadly, a few years later, Napoleon was overthrown. And his successors allowed the Papacy to return albeit in a lesser capacity - sans political power.

During this period, the Bible was proscribed. The general population were forbidden to read it or own it. It was limited to a counterfeit clergy who arrogated to themselves the sole power to read and interpret Scripture. In a gradual but relentless manner, the Scripture was totally defaced! The Name of the Author and Owner of the Bible was expunged and Satan's name substituted in the 6,823 places the Father's Name appeared in the Bible! Every word was altered that could help any searcher find the truth. Biblical institutions were replaced by pagan ones. Every waymark in the Bible now pointed in the direction of Satan! Away from Elohiym. The Papacy was indeed Satan's champion in accomplishing the long-planned overthrow of Elohiym. (See the plan in YeshaYahuw 14:12-14). Let's watch Satan the Dragon execute it in the Book of Revelation.

The Papacy | Setup By Satan
  1. "And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority."
  2. "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."
  3. "And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"
  4. "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months."
  5. "And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against YaHuWaH, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven."
  6. "And it was given unto him to make war with the Saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."
Revelation 13:2-7 RNKJV

Notice the direct correlation between the above Scripture with Daniy'el 7 quoted above also. The Seat of Power taken over by the Papacy was supposedly one abandoned by Caesar as he fled to Constantinople. But in reality it was Satan that arranged it for him. "and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority" The Dragon is Satan. (See Revelation 12:9).

Throughout the period of history dominated by the Papacy and its religion - catholicism, the knowledge of Elohiym was eviscerated. The worship of idols, counterfeit priesthood and almost everything they taught banished every knowledge of the Son of Elohiym from His world. In His place was the 'so-called Vicar of the Son of Elohiym'. This self-styled 'Vicar' almost annihilated the people of Elohiym from the world! Millions of Qodeshiym (Saints) were slaughtered for their faith in the word of Elohiym, labeled 'heretics'! This was during the period spanning 1,260 years, ended in 1798 AD. However, before arriving at this terminal date of the Papacy's first period of supremacy, the world began seeing signs of light. The Reformation was in full bloom. A fresh view of Scripture shook the very foundations of the papacy. Elohiym's servant, Dr. Martin Luther, shook the foundations of the Papacy and indeed the world. The emergence of Luther and Lutheranism marked the end of the Dark Ages. The darkness of the Age was simply the lack of the light of the knowledge of YaHuWaH's will the world over.

The Reformation

Doctor Luther's anthem was "Sola Scriptura". In any and everything to do with Elohiym and eternal life, it has to be from and by Scripture and Scripture only. Tradition had abolished Scripture by Catholicism. The religion of works taught by catholicism was then supplanted by a faith-based religion as per the Reformers. We are not going to be relitigating the history of the reformation here, but just to mention it and its effect on the Church as whole. Soon, many others too numerous to mention followed in Luther's footsteps. But a few may be mentioned here, namely: Calvin who founded Calvinism, Zwingli, Melancthon, John Wesley who founded the Methodist Church, John Smyth who founded the Baptist Church.

Throughout the Dark Ages, YaHuWaH had his true Church hidden away in mountains and caves; in wildernesses the world over; to protect her from the ire of the wicked one - the Papacy. (See Revelation 12:6). Among them were the Waldenses of the Piedmont valley in Italy, the Huguenots of Southern France among many others. But by these faithful sentinels, Elohiym's word was preserved well enough that even after thousands of years of assault, we can still find the Bible to read today and the Bible in remarkably reasonable health. Missing pieces are being found and put back in their rightful places; Language of Scripture is now being restored. We now know our Father's Name: YaHuWaH and the name of His Son: YaHuWshuaH . We know a host of other things which our ancestors never knew, thanks to papal darkness. They even inserted the Name of a pagan deity "amen", where the Savior's title - "Amein" should be!

The Reformation came under satanic assault. The extreme dependence on 'creeds' by the reformed Church, created inflexibility among protestant congregants. Light had begun to dawn, but all light was not manifested in one day or by one man. And so whatever did not come by Doctor Luther was rejected by many of his followers without regard to the merits of the issue at hand or to whether it was biblical or not. Schisms happened and repeatedly. If the Lutherans and Methodists had accepted the truth about 'baptism', there may never had been a Baptist Church. "Creeds" were and remain among Satan's most powerful tools for weakening the Church. Still, budding Church leaders themselves former victims of 'creeds' would lead their own followers into a new denomination only to proceed to lock them up in another 'creed'. And so, we came to have Lutheranism, Calvinism, Methodism, Baptism and so on. But one thing they all managed to agree on was 'no more recourse to tradition', the Scriptures only. But even here, varying interpretations of the same Scripture would yet again wreak untold havoc in the Church.

The darkest part of the history of the reformation was their near unanimity in retaining the papal disregard for the Law of Elohiym - The Ten Commandments. To a man, they all took the position that the Law was nailed to the Cross! But when pushed, they would concede its validity but to a limited extent - cherry-picking. The biblical Ten Commandments had been scrapped in favor of the Catholic version by the Papacy! That version retained the 'ten' parts or precepts of the Law. But it did the following:

  • Deleted the Second Commandment which forbade the making of art of any type, whether /images or sculpture. Forbade bowing down to them or to anything or anyone else but YaHuWaH.
  • In order to retain the 'ten precepts', they divided the tenth commandment into two: 'thou shall not covet....' and 'thou shall not covet...'
  • They altered the fourth Commandment to harmonize with the decisions they made at the Nicene Council in 325 - 326 AD. There, the had ended the use of the 'biblical Calendar' and promoted the 'Julian Calendar'. Ended the celebration of biblical feasts in favor of the pagan feasts of Easter and Christmas and others! By them, the Sabbath was abolished and the first day of the week became the day of worship instead of the Seventh! And here lies another major and diabolical deception. Most people focus on the change from Saturday to Sunday when they consider what day is the true Sabbath. But they fail to understand that worshiping on Sunday, Saturday or Tuesday or Friday, makes no difference at all. In none of them can the True Sabbath be found! They are all days within the Julian, "now the" Gregorian Calendar. By switching to their own Calendar it became impossible for any conscientious Seeker to truly obey YaHuWaH and keep His Covenant! To obey YaHuWaH and keep His Covenant requires that we use YaHuWaH's Calendar. The Gregorian Calendar is Satan's Calendar! You may check out the foregoing links here for details.
  • They endeavored not to remove the original text of the Law from the Scriptures - they couldn't. There was no need to do so since the people had absolutely no chance of laying hands on the Bible in those days. Instead it was all in black and white in every generation of the Catholic Cathecisms. The Cathecisms were the nearest the people came to a Bible! How miserable!

The Reformation which began in the early 16th Century never thought to restore Elohiym's Law. They continued to this day in favoring the Papacy's version of the Law, the Calendar (times). But Elohiym would insist on it, and change must come. It did not happen until the first half of the 19th Century when William Miller brought the great Awakening to the world. He had studied Bible Prophecies extensively and came to the conclusion that the world did not have long to remain in its then state. Its destruction by the Second-coming of the Son of Elohiym was imminent. The date set for this event was October 22, 1844. Of course it did not happen. The world is still here. But something stupendous did happen. The Millerites simply misinterpreted Scripture. On that date, Scripture was precise, the Son of Man 'Came to the Ancient of Days' to receive the list of the subjects of His eternal Kingdom, and not to the world. It was the event of the beginning of the 'Cleansing of the Sanctuary'. See Daniy'el 8:14. Their disappointment when their prediction seemed to fail, was profound.

Following their deep disappointment, they were determined to figure out how and where they went wrong. Elohiym graciously comforted them. First, He pointed them to the Prophecy in Scripture that predicted, explained and described their experience and disappointment and revealed to them the real event that took place on that day. (See Revelation 10).

As they persisted in their prayers and studies, they saw that a terrible 'breach' had been made in the Law of YaHuWaH and that it was their duty to repair that awful breach. (See YeshaYahuw 58). And, dutifully, they fully restored the Ten Commandments and began preaching Sabbath-keeping in the context of the messages given by the first three Angels of Revelation 14. Adventism, the direct product of the Millerite Movement, had supplanted Protestantism. As at 1844, Protestantism and all organizations up to then identifiable as "the Church", ceased to be so in the sight of Elohiym. Remember that Elohiym does not allow any new epoch unless the extant one apostasizes irreparably. Protestantism showed no appetite to restore Elohiym to His Book, His Law, and to the people and so they forfeited their place forever. Anyone fellowshiping in those denominations today are merely socializing. Their claim to be worshiping the Creator is a most hollow one indeed.

Along with catholicism and paganism, those denominations became known by Scripture as "Babylon"! From 1844, or more precisely, in 1863 when the Seventh-day Adventist Church was formally organized, she became Elohiym's only Church in the world. Elohiym called all humanity to "Come out of Babylon" and join the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Those who refused to do so, were acknowledged by Heaven to be outside the Covenant. (See Revelation 18:4-5). And so it was. Elohiym ensured that the world was encouraged to join by giving them the greatest sign He could at that time: gave them a Prophetess in Ellen Gould White. Click here for details. Her ministry was the fulfilment of the Prophecy of Revelation 19:10. That was more than sufficient evidence of the divine character of Adventism. The Seventh-day Adventist Church held sway and accomplished mighty exploits for YaHuWaH. The progress she made in restoring truth to the world far surpassed everything since AD 100 when the beloved Shaliah (Apostle) Yahuwchanon died.

While all Protestant denominations before 1844 had one and only one message to proclaim: "The Bible and the Bible Only - Righteousness by Faith and not by Works", the Seventh-day Adventist Church had so much more. Here are a few of them:

  1. The Immutability and Perpetuity of the Ten Commandments, being the Transcript of the Character of YaHuWaH, which is invariable.
  2. The eternal requirement of Sabbath-keeping. The requirement to Keep the Seventh-day Sabbath is mandatory for YaHuWaH's People being the Seal of the Covenant. It has been so since eternity past and remains into eternity future. (See YeshaYahuw 66:23).
  3. The Sanctuary message which showed that YaHuWshuaH's death on the Cross made our Salvation possible by providing the 'Blood' needed for the remission and blotting away of our sins. The work of dealing with our sins with the Blood is the work that YaHuWshuaH has been doing since His ascension to Heaven in AD 31. He is there this very minute conducting the 'final Atonement' for us all. He is 'cleansing the Sanctuary' of the records of our sins. He is engaged in the Investigative Judgment. When He comes the Second time, He will bring His reward for everyone with Him. The decision for weal or for woe for everyone is being made in this process. It is the Final Judgment.
  4. The Everlasting Gospel revealed in the messages of the first three Angels of Revelation 14, as presented by the Millerites and every Seventh-day Adventist ever since.
  5. The necessity of preparing for eternal life by making wholesale lifestyle changes: Reverting to our Edenic diet complemented by Vegetables given to us to address the effects of sin in Bere'shiyth (Genesis) 3:18. Cessation of dependence on flesh foods and also a resort to natural remedies for the restoration of health in the event of a health breakdown. All backed by Scripture and the Ruach of Prophecy
  6. Debunked the infernal falsehood of the ever-burning "hell fire" and set forth the truth about the state of the dead.
  7. The Spirit of Prophecy. (See Revelation 19:10). Through Ellen White, the world was given full view of all things happening in Heaven. She was the "Seer", but preferred to describe herself as YaHuWaH's Messenger. In her writings we have the privilege of authoritative eye-witness accounts of almost all of Scripture. Elohiym treated Ellen White to 'time travel' by taking her back in time and made her an observer of events beginning from the fall of Satan in Heaven, to the Creation of the world to the passion of the Savior; to our very arrival in Heaven after the Second-coming. She saw all and has recorded them for us all. Amazing resource for anyone seeking to go deep into the things of Elohiym and life. Sadly, some in the Seventh-day Adventist Church think the resources belong only to Seventh-day Adventists! Nothing can be further from the truth. While they are expected to be its custodian, they are expected to make them freely available to every human being who seeks them. We can be thankful to Elohiym that all her writings are now available to all. Simply download and install the App (Ellen G. White Writings) from Windows store, Google Play for Android users or Apple Store for IOS users. Sadly, Satan-inspired prejudice has and will still prevent many from enjoying their rightful privilege.

These are only but a few of the astounding and revolutionary doctrines and knowledge of Scripture which the world was treated to by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. They are no trifles, far from it. Rather they are of serious salvational import. The world had never seen anything like it. It was really refreshing to relate with truth in the way the denomination approached Scripture. They refused to fall into the trap that tripped up previous denominations - the temptation to 'interpret' Scripture. In the main, the Seventh-day Adventist Church showed that it was possible to understand all Scripture without ever intepreting it by oneself. Indeed they showed that it is the biblical template, to let Scripture interpret Scripture. (See YeshaYahuw 28:9-13 and 2 kepha 1:20).

What a sad commentary that the same poison that killed all previous denominations was the same that ended Adventism's place in the Heart of Elohiym! The establishment of a 'creed' which Adventism re-labeled 'Fundamental Beliefs', proved their undoing. They were strongly warned to cease and desist by the Prophetess Ellen White. Click here for details and references. But they would not. ELohiym wanted them to revert to the original Church governance structure that was in place throughout the Apostolic times. Adventism's leaders adamantly refused. Consequently, YaHuWaH told them to their very faces that He would have no part of them anymore. This was the disastrous outcome of the epochal General Conference Session held in Minneapolis Minnesota in 1888. As at this day, Adventism is now part and parcel of 'Babylon'; 'confusion'. Haven said that, it is important to state that Adventism remains the only organized religious institution in the world today, where members stand some chance of approaching Truth as it is in YaHuWshuaH. Another great shame, the same that consigned denominations before her to the same ash heap of history, is the obsession with going no where beyond the 'bus-stop' of their Pioneers. Consider this:

In the time of the end every divine institution is to be restored.
E. G. White, 'Prophets and Kings', p. 678

Since this revelation was given, the Seventh-day Adventist Church continues to behave as if there is nothing left to do! Their attitude is the classic, nay, prophetic "..., I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;" ...See Revelation 3:17 RNKJV.

Uriah Smith (May 3, 1832 - March 6, 1903) was a Seventh-day Adventist author, minister, educator, and theologian who is best known as the longest serving Editor of the Review and Herald (now the Adventist Review) for over 50 years. He was the Denomination's foremost Prophecy Expositor (See his book titled: "Daniel & Revelation" or download this PDF copy ). Since his death the Denomination abandoned Prophecy Exposition! A people of Prophecy abandoning Prophecy? Catastrophic! Following their abdication, YaHuWaH appointed Mrs. Marian G. Berry who has done that work for Elohiym's people. HalleluYah. See some of Marian G. Berry's Work here.

As in all things, the Omniscient Elohiym was not taken unawares by Adventism's failure and fall. He had a plan to ensure that the "Church" matched on regardless. But, this time YaHuWaH has not introduced a new epoch as in previous times. Why? Because, He limited the rest of time from the beginning of the New Testament in AD 34 to the Second-Coming of His dear Son, YaHuWshuaH, to seven time segments which are described in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 as 'Churches'. The Churches are as follows:

    The Seven Churches
  • Church in Ephesus - (AD 27 To AD 100)
  • Church in Smyrna (AD 100 To AD 303)
  • Church in Pergamum (AD 303 To AD 538)
  • Church in Thyatira (AD 538 To AD 1798)
  • Church in Sardis (AD 1798 to AD 1833)
  • Church in Philadelphia (AD 1833 To AD 1863)
  • Church in Laodecea (AD 1863 To Second-Coming)

We are living in the days of the Church in Laodicea. The 'lukewarm church', the self-conceited church. Regardless of your denomination, you are part of 'Laodicea'! YaHuWshuaH wrote personal letters to each of the Churches. They actually were physical churches that existed in those cities in Asia Minor at the time the Shaliah (Apostle) Yahuwchanon penned the 'letters' to them. But just as the content and essence and circumstances of those letters were specific to them, the same applied to the above periods each of them represented. Also, for good measure, everyone us may look into each letter and find our picture in one of them. For we have spiritual weaknesses represented by the failings of each of them.

Revelation 3 did not indicate the possibility of the Church in Laodicea repenting or improving or turning its situation around. Elohiym knew that back then. And so, for the first time, the Bible began de-emphasizing 'congregation / denomination' and shifted Elohiym's appeals to the 'individual' in these words:

YaHuWaH Is Calling You, Not Your Church
  1. "I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see."
  2. "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent."
  3. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."
Revelation 3:18-20 RNKJV

And so, consequently, Elohiym is looking to every religion, denomination, tribe and tongue and people for those who would lay hold of His Covenant of peace. As many as do, are part of the Church today. HalleluYah. You must know that if you allow your denomination to keep you from the knowledge of the 'truth', you are accountable, personally accountable. The duty to seek the light is yours as a person. Elohiym has not appointed anyone to be between you and Him, none. No Pastor, No Priest, No Elder, No Bishop, No Pope, No President, No whatsoever, is to come between you and Him. Hear him:

There Must Be None Between Us & Elohiym
  1. "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith YaHuWaH; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them Elohiym, and they shall be to me a people:"
  2. "And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know ye YaHuWaH: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest."
Hebrews 8:10-11 RNKJV

YaHuWaH Is Our Teacher
  1. "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the main__section, ..."
Yahuwchanon 7:17 (The Eth CEPHER)

YaHuWshuaH Is Our Teacher
  1. "But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Rabbi (Teacher), even Mashiach; and all ye are brethren."
MattithYahuw 23:8 (The Eth CEPHER)

Ruach haQodesh Is Our Teacher
  1. "Howbeit when he, the RUACH EMETH (Spirit Of Truth), is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come."
  2. "He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you."
Yahuwchanon 16:13-14 (The Eth CEPHER)

The Shaliah (Apostle) Kepha (Peter) had just made up with the resurrected YaHuWshuaH when they met by the Galilean sea where Kepha and others had gone fishing. Kepha had denied his Adonai repeatedly. While the Savior was reassuring Kepha and exhorting him to end his fishing profession and focus on feeding 'my flock', Kepha decided that he was being restored to 'leadership' of the Shlichiym (Apostles). Then he asked the Savior a direct question. What does the Savior want him (Kepha) to assign to the Shaliah Yahuwchanon to do in the Ministry? The Savior quickly shut Kepha down, saying to him, that it is not Kepha's business what Yahuwchanon's assignment would be. Kepha should concentrate on his given assignment. YaHuWshuaH Himself will give Yahuwchanon his assignment. (See Yahuwchanon 21: 21-22).

If you would depend on anyone to tell you your duty toward Elohiym, to teach you about Him; to show you your assignment in His Vineyard; taking orders from a fellowman in the shape of Pastor, you have rejected His Covenant and will be subject to the inevitable and horrible consequences, in time and eternity.

Finally, as you study Revelation chapters 2 and 3, for more on the "Letters", notice that it was in the days of the 'Church in Ephesus', that the doors to the "Holy Place of the Temple" in Heaven was opened and Mashiach began His High Priestly Ministry in our behalf. This door remained opened until October 22, 1844 when it was 'shut' forever, and the 'Door of the Most Holy Place' in the Temple in Heaven was opened. This was in the Days of the Church of Philadelphia. Here YaHuWshuaH speaks about it:

YaHuWshuaH's Ministration Changes In The Heavenly Sanctuary
  1. "And to the Angel of the assembly in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;"
  2. "I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: ..."
Revelation 3:7-8 RNKJV

During the days of His ministration in the 'Holy Place' - the first apartment of the Sanctuary, His task was that securing 'forgiveness' for our every daily and hourly sins. It was a time when we could sin daily and expect 'forgiveness'. It was a time when men were not expected to attain to 'perfection or sinlessness'! But when He left that 'first apartment' and 'shut' the doors, that situation or dispensation ended. The imperfection had to cease or we cannot enter Heaven or see Elohiym. We are expected to find Him in the 'Most Holy Place' where He is now. And there, His task is not just forgiveness, but the 'blotting away' of sins and entering "names" into the 'Book of life'. People who join Him there are rendered 'Perfect', 'sinless', 'mature' in fulfilment of the New Covenant promise. See Ivriym (Hebrews) chapter 8. But sadly, people every where are continuing to knock on a door that has been shut forever, where there is no 'minister', ignoring the Door that has been opened for them! They of course trifle and scoff at the idea of perfection in our world. They are content to be sinful daily and secure forgiveness by confession! You cannot 'open' that 'door'! Seek the 'Open Door'. The Savior is there, waiting for you to come in and be freed from sinfulness and granted 'perfection', full 'maturity' in readiness for the 'harvest' about to take place.

Church | Of All Ages For Heaven

The Church of Laodicea, is the seventh and last Church that shall exist and she shall remain until She is purified and sifted to separate the wheat from the chaff. That work will soon be done by YaHuWaH's Angels. It will be a stunning event that will definitely gain the attention of the entire world. At the end of the work, there shall be left only 144,000 of us from all presently claiming church membership. Click here, and, here, for details.

The 144,000
  1. "And I saw another Angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Elohiym: and he cried with a loud voice to the four Angels, to whom it was given to hurt the Earth and the sea,"
  2. "Saying, Hurt not the Earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our Elohiym in their foreheads."
  3. "And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. "
Revelation 7:2-4 RNKJV

The 144,000 Emerge
  1. "HE cried also in my ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand."
  2. "And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lies toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar."
  3. "And the glory of the ELOHAI of Yashar'el was gone up from the Keruv, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side;"
  4. "And YaHuWaH said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Yerushalayim, and set a Tav (mark) upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof."
  5. "And to the others he said in my hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:"
  6. "Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the Tav; and begin at my Sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house."
  7. "And he said unto them, Defile eth-the house, and fill eth-the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city."
  8. "And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah ADONAI YaHuWaH! will you destroy eth all the remnant of Yashar'el in your pouring out of eth-your fury upon Yerushalayim?"
  9. "Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Yashar'el and Yahuwdah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, YaHuWaH has forsaken eth-the Earth, and YaHuWaH sees not."
  10. " And as for me also, my eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head."
  11. "And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as you have commanded me."
Yechezkiy'el 9:1-11 The Eth CEPHER

Now these special people, referred to as 'a stone cut out without hand' in Daniy'el chapter 2, still part of the Church of Laodicea, will go out into all the world in supernatural strength with supernatural resources, to preach the messages of the Third Angel of Revelation 14, and amplify that message with the messages of the remaining three Angels, the harvest Angels in the same chapter. The Bible calls this special work, "the Loud Cry". The Message of the Seventh Angel, the Angel of Revelation 18:1-4, shall give power to their Preaching.

By this effort, men and women from every tribe, tongue and people; from every religion and irreligion who hitherto had never known YaHuWaH and His Son YaHuWshuaH, will come out of Babylon and swell the ranks of the 144,000. They will come in the hundreds of Millions. Let's read the Prophecy concerning this below.

The Great Multitude Are Harvested
  1. "For, behold, YaHuWaH will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire."
  2. "For by fire and by his sword will YaHuWaH plead with all flesh: and the slain of YaHuWaH shall be many."
  3. "They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith YaHuWaH."
  4. "For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory."
  5. "And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles."
  6. " And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto YaHuWaH out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Yerushalayim, saith YaHuWaH, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of YaHuWaH ."
  7. "And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith YaHuWaH."
  8. "For as the new heavens and the new Earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith YaHuWaH, so shall your seed and your name remain."
  9. "And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith YaHuWaH."
YeshaYahuw 66:15-23 RNKJV

By this action, the 'stone cut out without hands' becomes a 'great mountain'. See Daniy'el 2:34-35.

This great multitude are ready for the trip to Heaven. During the fierce battle for these souls, Satan would put forth the ultimate of his powers; even become very physical and we would see him when he impersonates YaHuWshuaH HaMashiach by counterfeiting the Second-coming; all fallen Angels would be active in bringing misery to humanity all in a bid to stop people from switching sides in the Great Controversy. The world would unite with Satan to wipe out the 144,000 and the multitude. A universal Death Sentence will be promulgated out of the Vatican, the seat of the One-world government at the time. All nations shall give their support to the Vatican with the promise to implement the sentence within their borders. (See Revelation 17:12-14). But they shall not be permitted to execute the sentence. At midnight when forces are out, armed with assorted slaughter weapons, to slaughter the Qodeshiym (Saints), then the 'Voice of Elohiym' will be heard from the Throne, saying, 'It is Done'. (See Revelation 16:17). He will announce the day and hour of YaHuWshuaH's arrival. That friend is the end. The executioners and their kings cannot hide their terror. They know that they have lost all in the conflict. The Saints triumph and are happy to receive their former persecutors coming to worship at their feet.

The Voice Of Elohiym

Final Events

When YaHuWshuaH arrives, borne by the 'clouds of heaven' - Angels, His feet will not touch the ground. His 'spacecraft' is large enough to take hundreds of millions if not billions of Saints since Adam. His Angels shall scatter over the whole Earth and gather His elect; first, those who He just raised from the dead, and the living who have been 'transfigured / glorified' and board everyone on the 'spacecraft'. And we all head for Heaven. While the Angels are gathering us into the 'spacecraft', the Earth is being pulverized by heavy stones from the sky. Everyone whose name is not in the 'Book' shall die from the power of the brightness of His Splendor. The wicked dead shall remain in their graves. And so the Earth will become a 'bottomless pit' again, as it was when it first emerged from the Creator's hand, without a single human anywhere! But Satan and his Demon Angels shall be here and remain here for a 'thousand years' with absolutely nothing to do - jailed, in chains. (See Revelation Chapter 20). We are also going to spend the same 'thousand years' in Heaven deciding the 'executive judgment', the 'punishment' for all sinners and fallen Angels.

The Earth Becomes "Bottomless Pit"
  1. "I beheld eth-the Earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light."
  2. "I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly."
  3. "I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled."
  4. "I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of YaHuWaH, and by his fierce anger."
  5. "For thus has YaHuWaH said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end."
YirmeYahuw 4:23-27 (The Eth CEPHER)

At the end of the 'thousand years' we will return to Earth. The Savior will lead the way out of the gates of Heaven. He will be followed by the Angels, next in the train is the "City of the Great King", 'the New Yerushalayim' and bringing up the rear will be 'us', by His special grace.

This time YaHuWshuaH's feet shall touch the Olivet summit first and it would turn into a massive molten plain (See ZekarYahuw 14:4), the landing site for the City. Then the City lands and takes root with its foundation fastening into the ground. Then YaHuWshuaH orders the City's gates open and we enter into our apartments accompanied by our Angelic friends and neighbors.

Once all house-keeping is completed, YaHuWshuaH will now turn His attention to the wicked. He calls them all up from the dead. Trillions of them. Satan sees his friends alive again. He rushes into their midst lying to them that his power just raised them from their graves. He reacquaints them with his plan to capture the only structure standing in the entire world. The most beautiful thing their eyes had ever seen or ever will see. It is when they make their move to attack the City that YaHuWshuaH will interrupt proceedings by revealing Himself to them. In that very moment, the Saints in glory seated atop the city walls, the trillions of condemned sinners and fallen Angels will watch as the One we call YaHuWshuaH the King of grace will be crowned the 'King of glory'. After His coronation, the Sentence shall be given to all Sinners and then YaHuWshuaH will unveil His Splendor. Fire out Him will consume the wicked root and branch. It is this 'unveiling' of YaHuWshuaH's glory that is 'hell fire'. That friend, is the end of sin and sinners.

When the fire's job is done, with only ashes left (See Mal'akiy 4:), YaHuWshuaH will invite His people to watch as He creates a new 'Heaven' and a new 'Earth'. We will watch and see His creative power in live action. When He did it the first time, we were not there and had to believe. But this time, we will be witnesses. Our praise and songs shall know no bounds. Eternity is our own and begins. Praise YaHuWaH our Elohiym who laid this infinitely deep plan for our salvation. Amein.

End Of the Wicked & Wickedness
  1. "FOR, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, says YAHUAH TSEVA'OTH, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch."
  2. "But unto you that fear my name shall the brilliance of righteousness arise with healing wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall."
  3. "And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says YAHUAH TSEVA'OTH."
  4. "Remember ye the Torah of Mosheh my servant, which I commanded unto him in Chorev for all Yashar'el, with the commandments and judgments."
  5. "Behold, I will send you eth-Eliyahuw the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of YAHUWAH: "
  6. "And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite eth-the Earth with a curse."
Mala'kiy 4:1-6 (The Eth CEPHER)

The world has been hearing the voice of Eliyahuw the prophet since the preaching of the messages of the three Angels of Revelation 14 began. But, we shall hear that voice raised in powerful trumpet-tones very soon in the ministry of the 144,000.

Will you be there? Let us pray for one another that we should meet there never to part again. In the Mighty Name of YaHuWshuaH HaMashiach, Ben Elohiym, the only Potentate. Amein, and Amein.
