"Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against you shall fall because of you." Isaiah 54:15
One of the most glaring discrepancies in some religious groups/organizations is their so-called unity. If they are in unity, why are there so many religious groups? A recent example of this so-called unity can be found in the quasi Sacred Name Groups. It now appears they have created an annual "Unity Conference" so they can be in unity! This must be some kind of twisted observation on their part. I mean, if you believe in the Bible, shouldn't you be in unity already? Sort of anyway? Perhaps a little?
The comparison between King Saul and the Nominal Sacred Name Groups is as follows:
Numerous times innocent people come across the Sacred Name of Yahweh. These people really have no knowledge of the real truth of Yahweh's Word! They begin investigating this newly found revelation. Their investigation leads them to the Internet. There, they discover Yahweh's name being used in thousands upon thousands of different ways! Currently the Google search engine yields approximately 2,230,000 hits. Granted; some of these are more than duplicates. Still-this constitutes volumes of information to sort through. Where is the truth? Which one of these many places using Yahweh's Name has the correct information?
Upon entering service to King Saul, David was an innocent youth.
"And Samuel said
unto Jesse, Are here all your children? And he said, There
remains yet the youngest, and,
behold, he is keeping the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him;
for we will not sit down till he come here.
And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and was of a beautiful countenance, and good to look upon. And Yahweh said, Arise, anoint him; for this is he.
Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the middle of his brethren: and the Spirit of Yahweh came mightily upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
Now the Spirit of Yahweh departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from Yahweh troubled him." 1 Samuel 16:11-14
I could rest my case on this passage alone, but I will explain further. When individuals begin investigating the truth of Yahweh's Word, they will find many untruthful people. We at Truth On The Net Dot Com can help these newcomers cut through the jungle of mass prevarications. With our combined experiences and resources, we can reduce their confusion level significantly. By showing who King Saul represents, and subsequently the type of people that parallel King David's manner of life, we can offer a win win situation for the newcomers to truth.
David was an innocent youth! But; after some time in the house of Saul, he wizened to the ways of the evil side of his King. We respectfully submit to you the reader, that the Sacred Name Movement parallels the life of King Saul. An evil spirit troubles them because they refuse to follow Yahweh's word exclusively! Hence; the title of this series, "David in the House of Saul."
David symbolizes the beloved of Yahweh! Those that have a repentant attitude and want to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of Yahweh!
And from there they
asked for a king. And Yahweh gave Saul the son of Kish to them, a man of the
tribe of Benjamin, for forty years.
And removing him, He raised up to them David for a king, to whom He also said, witnessing, "I found David" the son of Jesse "to be a man according to My own heart, who will do all My will." [1 Samuel 13:14; Psalm 89:20; LXX-Isaiah 44:28]
Of the seed of this one, according to promise, Yahweh raised up to Israel a Savior, Yahshua; Acts 13:21-23
"Shall two walk together, except they have agreed?" Amos 3:3
"Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven." Matthew 18:19
From our Intel, we can assure you, these groups masquerading as the true messenger/messengers of Yahshua the Messiah, are totally erroneous! We have posted criteria on this web site for the repentant sincere individuals, to be in harmony with Abba Yahweh's true way. We have critiqued many organizations, groups and individuals here also. So? Why are these people gathering in a so-called "Unity Conference" if they are really in confusion and disunity? Our Intel focuses on a specific purpose, and that is to attack and discredit a particular organization and their leadership.
We are told that there were plans in effect to take over this organization in times past. However, we are also told every attempt has failed in previous challenges. This falls perfectly in line with King Saul's attempt to annihilate Israel's future King and the bloodline to the Savior, Yahshua the Messiah. If these people/groups were so sincere, wouldn't they be working towards the same objective; collectively? The same goal? You would think! The question remains: Was King Saul sincere in his attack on Israel's future King? By all means! He exhausted time and resources in hunting down David, just to kill him. ( Lovely fellow that one!) The similarities are unmistakable! These Sacred Name Groups are also sincerely wrong! The Apostle Paul also attacked the true worshippers of Yahshua the Messiah, and look what happened to him! The difference being, the Apostle Paul repented and took correction.
Just who are these people? I mean the ones who need to attend a "Unity Conference" to be in quasi unity? They come from assorted backgrounds, diverse religious training, and mixed mental capacities. Many have been taken to the top of the mountain and shown the kingdoms in a moment of time, and they fell for it!
"Again the Devil
takes Him to a very high mountain, and shows to Him all the kingdoms of the
world and their glory.
And he said to Him. I will give all these things to You if falling down, You will worship me." Matthew 4:8-9
What we have observed here at Truth On The Net Dot Com is utterly amazing! We have observed a Heinz 57 of Elijah's. We have observed a plethora of this...
"The voice of one that cries, Prepare you in the wilderness the way of Yahweh; make level in the desert a highway for our Elohim." Isaiah 40:3
"And they asked
him, What then? Are you Elijah? And he says, I am not. Are you the prophet? And
he answered, No.
They said therefore unto him, Who are you? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What say you of yourself?
He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of Yahweh, as said Isaiah the prophet." John 1:21-23
Can any one of these groups claim this distinction in actuality as they do? My question is: How can they? Upon examination, they do not meet the Biblical criteria for anything but confusion. What would be the standard? How could you tell? If you read the scriptures you would have the answer! You would know!
Who is Elijah? (EliYah)
Who is that voice in the wilderness?
(And the answer to these questions just might surprise you!)
The Holy Word of Abba Yahweh answers these questions for you, and more, if you would take the time to find out! Will this enigma be answered in the Nominal Sacred Name groups/organizations? Can this be revealed in the so-called "Unity Conference?" What a joke! Those people are seriously confused at best, in their Biblical understanding! Are we exalting ourselves then? No! Not at all! Just an educated observation, coupled with years of experience. Can you infuse various pagan religions with the truth of Yahweh's Word? Can you dilute the strength of total commandment observation with; "you don't have to keep the Old Testament Laws anymore?" Yes you do! But the question is: Which ones? Can you tell?
"The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all they that do his commandments: His praise endures forever." Psalm 111:10
Why do some people have a better understanding of the Bible than others? Why can Truth On The Net Dot Com plainly see these charlatans, while others cannot? They are blinded to the truth! Why? Because they do not want to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of Almighty Yahweh! When you start shortcutting the truth, the eyes grow dim. When you start dismissing the commandments of His Holy Word, it gets worse, blindness sets in! Soon you will be like those in this passage:
"Their feet run to
evil, and they hurry to pour out innocent blood. Thoughts of iniquity are their
thoughts; wasting and ruin are in their ways.
They do not know the way of peace; and no justice is in their tracks. They have made crooked paths for themselves; everyone going in them does not know peace.
For this reason justice is far from us; and righteousness does not overtake us. We wait for light, but, behold, dimness; for brightness, but we walk in gloom.
We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes; we stumble at noonday as in the twilight, in deserted places like ones dying." Isaiah 59:7-10
And this passage:
we have this ministry, even as we obtained mercy, we faint not:
but we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of Yahweh deceitfully; but by the manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of Yahweh.
And even if our evangel is veiled, it is veiled in them that perish:
in whom the mighty one of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the evangel of the glory of Messiah, who is the image of Yahweh, should not dawn upon them." 2 Corinthians 4:1-4
Blind and groping for the wall? Looking for the true meaning of the Bible? But? Never able to find it? Why?
"Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." 2 Timothy 3:7
The answer should be obvious by now! These three Biblical passages contain a surfeit of answers, if you just take the time to analyze the wording used. The focus is on sin! Whoever commits sin is not of Yahweh! Therefore; those who sin cannot see the truth of Yahweh's Word! They could study the Bible forever and never arrive at the simple conclusion delineated throughout Yahweh's message to mankind! (Ecclesiastes 12:13)
children, let no man lead you astray: he that does righteousness is righteous,
even as he is righteous:
he that does sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. To this end was the Son of Yahweh manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Whosoever is begotten of Yahweh does no sin, because his seed abides in him: and he cannot sin, because he is begotten of Yahweh.
In this the children of Yahweh are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousness is not of Yahweh, neither he that loves not his brother." 1 John 3:7-10
Go back and re-evaluate those three passages, with the passage of 1 John 3 in mind, and you can (and will) arrive at a knowledgeable conclusion. Sin blinds the eyes/minds of the perpetrators. They cannot clearly see the truth because of their sins! They are blinded to the truth of Abba Yahweh's Way!
"And coming near,
the disciples said to Him, Why do You speak to them in parables?
And answering, He said to them, Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven, but it has not been give to those. For whoever has, to him will be given, and he will have overabundance. But whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.
Because of this, I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.
And the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled on them, which says, "In hearing you will hear and in no way For the heart of this people has grown fat, and they heard heavily with the ears, and they have closed their eyes, that they not see with the eyes, or hear with the ears, and understand with the heart, and be converted, and I heal them." Isaiah 6:9, 10
'But your eyes are blessed because they see; and your ears because they hear." Matthew 13:10-16
In conclusion: Will the "Unity Conference" bring unity and any resolutions to their current dilemma? If you parallel the so-called Nominal Sacred Movement with the UN (United Nations) conferences and objectives, you have a remarkable comparison! Both end up a waste of time and resources!
The "Unity Conference" at it's best!
Back Part Three
Yours in Yahshua, Hawke
