A Small Faction of the Sacred Name Movement Attempts Unification of all Sacred Name Chr_ches!
II Timothy 4:2-4 “preach the word; be urgent in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all long‑suffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables”.
Yes, here we go again with another attempt by disgruntled and defrocked ministers knowing the sacred name to rally the sacred name movement to unity.
As most of our readers know, Truth On The Net Dot Com monitors dozens and dozens of sacred name organizations along with most other religious organizations (all who claim to be Yahweh’s servants) and reports on them so that you can avoid the frauds and imposters.
One such imposter is again at work attempting the impossible – To Unite the Sacred Name Movement. Yahweh’s Frystown Assembly located in Frystown, Pennsylvania. Is under the direction of Jacob C. Meyer who turns out to be a “defrocked” minister of the Assemblies of Yahweh of whom his father is the Bishop. Although no longer qualified to be a minister in his former organization, he still enjoys trading off its name when promoting his “missionary” journeys as recent intelligence reports have found. (Sounds like Jacob C. Wannabe to me!) [It appears that he wants to takes his father's position.) We are told via our Intel sources that Elder Jacob O Meyer is in good health despite rumors to the contrary!]
As I reviewed his recent internet report on this grand project of unifying the “Brethren” (I will come back to this later), I almost laughed out loud at the thought expressed by him of the “revolutionary idea” of unity. To understand my amusement one must look at the sacred name movement over the past 60 years, some of which has been documented here on this site. It is not unlike the recent past marketing strategy of a major fast food restaurant that used the slogan –" Have it your way! "
Jacob C. Meyer claims in his recent report, the failure of unity within the sacred name organizations is they have been artificially kept apart by their oppressive “leaders” in Yahshua and by doctrine that “divides." It would seem that he offers a choice, either the Holy Spirit (his version) of Yahweh or sound doctrine. He further states that “no two people agree completely on every point”. (Speaking of the Nominal Sacred Name Movement.) He claims like his marriage, differences in doctrine will “work themselves out eventually” if the right spirit and attitude are applied. (Perhaps alluding to troubles in his own marriage. Perhaps they have worked this out?) He writes that Yahshua was sent to “reconcile the world to Yahweh the Father, not to condemn it”
In addition, he takes no personal responsibility for any disunity that is so common in the sacred name movement. However! Nothing could be further from the truth!
The fault of disunity and separation in the Sacred Name Movement lies not in their former organization’s leadership, but rather in the individuals themselves. In virtually every case you find the rejection of sound Bible doctrines.
So, what is a leader of an organization (who teaches we must live by “every word that proceeds from the mouth of Yahweh”) to do when faced by an antagonist who wishes to continue in sin? Jacob C. Meyer would have us to believe that they must continue as “brethren” and be allowed fellowship with the rest of the flock. Most often the argument is based on the parable found in Matt 13:24-30. This is used to support an “all inclusive” policy for “brethren.”
“Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat, and went away. But when the blade sprang up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. And the servants of the householder came and said to him, Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where then has it tares? And he said to them, An enemy has done this. And the servants say to him, Will you then that we go and gather them up? But he says, No, lest while you gather up the tares, you root up the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.”
Jacob C. Meyer and his followers would have you believe the interpretation of this passage requires you to accept active sinners into fellowship, and then trust their differences will eventually work themselves out.
But, we must remember to use the Bible to interpret itself. The tares and the wheat spoken of are allowed to grow together in the field. However, Vs 38 tells us that the field is the world and is not the assembly. In fact, the word tells us that those who reject the Word are to be separated from fellowship! Such case is described in I Cor 5:1-5 where fornication was allowed for a time in the assembly. The Apostle Paul had to take action so the offender was “taken away from among you”. A very important point to notice in this passage is that the Holy Spirit of Yahweh was at the very forefront of this action. Notice verse 4 “in the name of our Sovereign Yahshua, you being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Sovereign Yahshua, to deliver such a one to Satan…”
According to Jacob C. Meyer, Paul would be one of those oppressive leaders in Yahshua who were artificially keeping the “brethren” apart! Apparently, Paul didn’t believe this doctrinal disagreement would “work itself out” eventually.
It is a Biblical fact doctrine and the Holy Spirit of Yahweh divides those who reject the kingdom way of life BUT unifies those who are willing to live by “every word”.
“ I therefore, the prisoner in Yahweh, beseech you that you walk worthily of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and meekness, with long‑suffering, forbearing one another in love; giving diligence to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you were also called in one hope of your calling: one Master, one faith, one baptism, one El and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all.” Eph 4:1-6
If all are of the same spirit should not they be all in agreement when it comes to the Word? The answer is a resounding YES! The one body will have one spirit and will be partakers in one faith. It will not be fragmented and in disunity. When it comes to Bible and doctrine they will be in complete agreement.
“Yahweh is faithful, through whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son Yahshua the Messiah our Master. Now I beseech you, brethren, through the name of our Sovereign Yahshua the Messiah, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” I Cor 1:9-10
The term used here for fellowship is Koninia in the Greek and it means a partnership.
From G2844; partnership, that is, (literally) participation, or (social) intercourse, or (pecuniary) benefaction: - (to) communicate (-ation), communion, (contri-), distribution, fellowship.
In any partnership there must be agreement between the parties, as they are sharing the same goal. When one of the parties pursues a different goal then there is disunity and eventually a failure in the agreement between them. There must be unity in the body of the Messiah. One may disagree on what color is best for a car, or perhaps a home, but when it comes to doctrine, everyone must be in agreement. (Amos 3:3)
You say you don’t believe any two individuals can been in total agreement? Not knowing the Word you do greatly err!
The term “one here is Acad in Hebrew, # 259. 'echad, ekh-awd'; a numeral from H258; prop. united, i.e. one; or (as an ordinal) first:--a, alike, alone, altogether, and, any (-thing), apiece, a certain [dai-] ly, each (one), + eleven, every, few, first, + highway, a man, once, one, only, other, some, together. (Strong’s) The Father and the Son have been and are in perfect agreement.
“I and the Father, one we are.” John 10:30
From the Messiah’s teaching, we have witness that the two are in perfect agreement as they have the same spirit (character).
“Do you not know that your bodies are members of the Messiah? Shall I then take away the members of the Messiah, and make them members of a harlot? By no means. Or do you not know that he that is joined to a harlot is one body? For, The two, he says, shall become one flesh. But he that is joined to Yahweh is one spirit.”
I Cor 6:15-17
According to the Word, those who would join themselves to the body of the Messiah will also be one in spirit and therefore also be in complete agreement, just as Yahshua and Yahweh are! But when Yahweh’s Holy Spirit is not in evidence, sin is, and so is the resulting separation. This brings us to the problem of how these renegades view individuals (no matter their doctrinal position) as “brethren”. We must always remember what Yahshua taught on whom we can consider our brethren.
“But he answered and said to him that told him, Who is my mother? And who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand towards his disciples, and said, Behold, my mother and my brethren! For whoever shall do the will of my Father who is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother.” Matt 12:48-50
If the Word of Yahweh is not what the individual is living by, then−they are not your brother.
“but your iniquities have separated between you and your Elohim, and your sins have hid his face from you, so that he will not hear.” Isaiah 59:2
According to the Scriptures, sin is the culprit behind the separation of these so-called brethren. The woes of the sacred name movement are rooted in their inherent nature to be contentious against authority. Therefore when one stands up to say – Thus says Yahweh, they begin to chafe and rebel at the thought of some man telling them what they must do, (even though it comes from the very Word of Yahweh!) By teaching tolerance for sin, these false prophets are themselves the root of the problem. They are, in fact teaching hate for Yahweh (I John 5:3, Isaiah 1:10-17) and doctrines that separate people from their elohim.
It is a fact that Yahshua’s mission was to “reconcile the world” to Yahweh. However, it is through his sacrificial blood (for sins!) and living a converted life that this reconciliation takes place. It is not through overlooking each other’s sins to develop a licentious support group.
“For the love of the Messiah constrains us; because we judge thus, that one died for all, therefore all died; and he died for all, that they that live should no longer live to themselves, but to him who for their sakes died and rose again.” II Cor 5:14-15
This is one of the very reasons that Truth On The Net was founded. These charlatans who prey on the unlearned and unsuspecting, are the ones we wish to expose, for what they truly are – wolves in sheep’s clothing!
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but the corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you shall know them. Not every one that says to me, Master, Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Master, Master, did we not prophesy by your name, and by your name cast out demons, and by your name do many mighty works? And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work lawlessness.” Matt 7:15-23
I would like to remind every reader of our websites purpose. It is not to promote self or to be critical for it’s own sake, but it is to expose the frauds and wolves who are seeking to make merchandise of those individuals who are sincerely and truly looking for the pathway to salvation, and have a heartfelt desire to truthfully serve Yahweh. Organizations such as this Yahweh’s Frystown Assembly are quick to compromise with the Word of Yahweh to gain numbers. At first glance they seem sincere, but like so many groups that we have investigated, we have found this too is just another disgruntled and defrocked minister looking for easy prey. This is not an organization that will lead you to the pathway of life but rather the broad way to destruction nor will they ever be able to unite the Sacred Name Movement.
Therefore we can not help but give this organization the Black Stone as they are easily found to be in false doctrine.
