          No different than others who set off along new pathways, self justification is deemed necessary in order to hold the innocent in the grips of the group leaders.  This can be accomplished a number of ways:  charisma of a leader, anger, hatred, attacks, use of buzz words, persecution syndrome along with revenge, etc.

 

          This group apparently uses a number of these techniques.  The undefined buzz word most common in their writing “Truth”.  Naturally they claim that they are of the Truth, are continuing Truth, and always have had the Truth even though apparently beginning a new religious group. 

          How does the Bible define Truth?  John 17:17 says,” Sanctify them in the truth; Thy word is truth.” (New International Version, NIV) All that is of the Truth must square with Yahweh’s Word, the Bible.  This is where the problem begins.  These people have obvious and glaring false statements which do not square with the Bible.  Furthermore, these deviations from the Truth of the Bible are the main justification of their existence as a unique religious group.

           Their method of attack:  attack using the Pharisees (the bad guys), the villains, and of course claim to be following Yahshua the Messiah (the good guy).  But do their claims square with the Bible.  Remember the Bible is the ultimate source of Truth.  Their main point is that Yahshua departed from the ministry of the Pharisees and Sadducees although He continued in the Truth.  So they claim, that they can also start a new ministry but remain in the Truth.  Of course to do this they have to throw in a few passages from the Bible like Revelation 18:4, Matthew 23, Matthew 5:10-12 (remember the persecution complex), to justify their actions.  But these passages don’t even get close to the Truth.  The passages are only thrown into their (letters) articles (?) just to have some passages to be used as justification.

          What is the Truth?  John 17:17, Yahweh’s word is Truth.  Let us consider that Yahshua Messiah did not start a new group or faith, but He sought to reform the Jewish faith.  Yahshua taught in the temple and synagogue!  Mark 11:15-16 says, “And they came to Jerusalem.  And He entered the temple and began to cast out those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of those who were selling doves: and He would not permit anyone to carry goods through the temple.  And He began to teach and say to them,’ Is it not written, “MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL THE NATIONS”?  But you have made it a ROBBERS’ DEN””. (NIV)  See Isaiah 56:7 and Jeremiah 7:11.  Notice that Yahshua was trying to reform the worship.  He did not say to His followers:  Let us leave this temple, this Babylon, and go to continue the Truth somewhere else.  No, the temple was the only location which was the center of Yahweh’s worship on the face of the earth.  And although in other cities and towns of Israel there existed worship in the synagogues, yet the temple in Jerusalem was the center of worship.  Yahshua worshiped there even though He was persecuted and even lost His life.  HE DID NOT DEPART!  See also John 2:13-17 and Psalm 69:9, which states, “Zeal for your house will consume me”.  Therefore those who say that they can depart and yet retain truth are not following the example of Yahshua the Messiah.  In fact they are deceiving and being deceived.

          Yahshua had every reason to start something new, but He had the same message from the beginning of the book of Genesis.   Yahweh worked with one group of people through the ages.  When Israel failed, prophets were called by Yahweh and sent to Israel to repent.  But, Yahweh did not give up on his people and continued to call them to repentance, even by sending His Son to the earth to teach and give an example.  See I Peter 2:22.

          John 7 shows that even under the threat of death, Yahshua still did not fail to appear at the temple, and not only to appear, but also to teach openly.  Remember that this is Yahweh’s Truth, Yahweh’s Word:  Yahshua did not forsake worship in the temple of Yahweh.  He remained faithful to His upbringing, not forsaking the worship of Yahweh.

          Matthew 26:55, “…Every day I used to sit in the temple teaching…” See Mark 14:49 and Luke 22:49.  John 18:20, “Yahshua answered him, ‘I have spoken openly to the world; I always taught in synagogues, and in the temple, where all the Jews come together; and I spoke nothing in secret.”

          When Yahshua was not in Jerusalem, he taught in the synagogue.  Mark 1:21, “And they went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and began to teach.”  Did Yahshua teach at other times outside of the synagogue?  Absolutely, he taught at other times.  But, at the feasts He was in Jerusalem in the temple, and on the Sabbath is His travels he worshiped in the synagogue.  Luke 4:16, “And He came to Nazareth, ‘where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read…” Not only did He read on the Sabbath day, He also taught the sermon on the Sabbath based upon the reading.  See the remainder of Luke 16.  Matthew 4:23, “Yahshua was going about in all Galilee teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.”

          Yahshua did not start a new worship or ever leave what He was brought up with.  No, He simply taught the Truth of Yahweh.  He never departed from the faith.  Well, you might say, then Yahshua’s disciples left and started a new faith after Yahshua’s death while continuing the Truth.  Now, now, think carefully.  Nothing could be further from the Truth.  Yahshua’s disciples continued in the pure teaching of Yahshua using the word of Yahweh as Truth and even though they were persecuted from time to time they worshiped in the temple and in synagogues.  Acts 2:46-47,” And every day steadfastly continuing with one accord in the Temple, and breaking bread in (their) houses, they took food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising Yahweh, and having favor with all the people; and Yahweh added to the assembly daily those who were being saved.” (King James II Version)

          In Acts 3:1-10 Peter and John were worshiping in the temple at the hour of prayer.  Peter and John did a healing.  But, note that even after Yahshua’s death and resurrection, Peter and John were worshiping in the temple of Yahweh.  Obviously, they followed Yahshua’s directions and example.  They did not begin a new faith or group.  They did not have a rival site of worship.  They did not continue the Truth somewhere else.  No, they worshiped at the ONE, AND ONLY ONE SITE APPROVED BY YAHWEH, YAHWEH’S TEMPLE.  They continued Yahshua’s work of trying to reform the worship of the day.  In Acts 6 it can be seen that even under persecution and trial they continued their worship in the temple.

          What about Revelation 18:4 and coming out of Babylon?  Obviously, Yahweh approved the apostles’ worship at the temple and in synagogues by apostle Paul’s traveling party.  See Acts 13:14-15, 18:4-7, and 19:8.  So coming out of Babylon meant coming out of the world.  See 1 Corinthians 6:1-18.  Remember the Truth lies in the fact that the apostles continued to worship in the temple and in synagogues. (Truth is the Word of Yahweh.) You must remember the swift gains early in the apostle’s ministry on the day of Pentecost and beyond.

          One cannot simply attack the Pharisees.  Recall John 4, Nicodemus was a Pharisee.  In Acts 23:6 Paul claims that both he and his parents are Pharisees.  Also Acts 6:7 shows that many of the priests were obedient to the faith.

          A remarkable statement in made at the Jerusalem conference of Acts 15.  When the decision was rendered the statement in verse 21 was, “For Moses from ancient generations have those proclaiming him, being read in the synagogues on every Sabbath.” (KJVii)  Apparently, they continued to assume that the people coming to the Truth would learn in the synagogues each Sabbath.

          What is found toward the end of the book of Acts, many years after Yahshua’s death and after many persecutions came and left?  Acts 21:15-30 records Paul doing what?  After years of travels, Paul was worshiping in the temple.  In Acts 22:17 Paul states, “And it happened to me, having returned to Jerusalem, and I having prayed in the Temple.”  Only when the temple was about to be destroyed did the brethren flee from Jerusalem.  The apostles cannot be used as a justification to separate from the one True worship of Yahweh.  That is the simple Truth of Yahweh.  Read carefully your Bible and think before making rash decisions.

          What about the accusation against the Pharisees that sit in Moses’ seat, the seat of judgment?  What did Yahshua say, “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore ‘all that they tell you, do and observe.’”, Matthew 23:2-3(NIV) This is Yahweh’s word.  It is Truth.  What is Yahshua say?  Disobey them?   No!  Start another group?  No!  Continue the Truth somewhere else?  No!  Yahshua said obey them.  Why?  Obviously it was Yahweh’s ordained government.  Yahweh sets up and Yahweh takes down.  Yahweh even has control of worldly government, Romans 13.  Should He not have control of sacred government?  See Exodus 18 and Deuteronomy 17.

          Why venom of deceit?  Because someone cannot make vows, Numbers 30 and when they become angry break their vows and cause others to break their vows to Yahweh.  Anyone continuing in Yahweh’s Truth will not break the vows made to Yahweh.  Remember Yahweh’s Truth, Yahweh’s Word include covenant keeping.  Romans 1:31 (Yahweh’s Word, Truth again) includes the term covenant-breakers (KJV) in a list of vices in the end days.  That is deceit and anger.  It is a venom or poison, which will corrupt and embitter a person.

          What can be said of a group who claims to continue the Truth when in fact and reality have started something new?  Obviously weakness will follow.  First the covenant and promises made are broken.  Then self-justification follows.  Always seemingly based upon the Bible.  But upon close scrutiny the venom is there, deceit and errors are accepted, Scriptures are stretched until the Truth of Yahweh is discarded and only anger remains.  Little by little the Truth of Yahweh is eroded, first “small laws”, then perhaps don’t ask too many questions about the food.  What you don’t know won’t hurt, will it?  Only those remaining in the Truth of Yahweh, following Yahweh’s Word exclusively will not be deceived to believe a lie.  But, that is Satan’s technique!  Truth or Error?  You must decide!

     


   

 

 The reproach this organization brings upon the True Name and true teachings of the Bible is a shame! You cannot mingle truth with error and be guiltless! Yahshua the Messiah never intended the Evangel to be proclaimed with venom and hatred!

 Judging by Urim and Thummim this group fails the test!

THE BLACK STONE!

And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; Elah hath numbered your kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; You art weighed in the balances, and are found wanting. Daniel 5:25-27

 

Therefore Our Guest judges these people to be in serious false doctrine and you should beware of this organization!
