Sukkot, The Feast Of Tabernacles, The True Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Did you know that today, Sukkot, the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles, is this true date of Y’shua’s/Jesus’ birth? Check it out! Until the Roman Emperor Constantine introduced paganism into the church, around 350 A.D., the early church celebrated the birth of the Messiah on the correct Holy Day, appointed by God.

Today, the Remnant of God, true believers, are beginning to shun the paganism, within the church and are making the move back to the appointed holy days.

Today, beginning at 6 PM, the Remnant of God begins observing Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacle‘s, which celebrates the initial fulfillment of God dwelling with us, within The anointed one, the Messiah, Y’shua/Jesus and pointing towards the in time, when God dwells with us forever, in the kingdom of God. During the seven days, we are reminded that God Spirit began to dwell with us, personally, at the time of Y’shua/Jesus and continues to dwell with us, until his promised return.

... and that’s what you’ll find When You Search For The Truth.

Yom Teruah, The Feast of Trumpets, Is The Beginning Of The End???

Did you know that the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah), in Ancient Times, was understood, as the inauguration of a judgment process that began on that day and comes to completion on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur)?  Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets starts tomorrow, at 6pm, on Rosh Hashanah, the new year and runs for three days. 

The Feast of Trumpets / Yom Teruah is a yearly memorial of judgement, repentance and forgiveness through the mercy of Yahweh / Yah Ehyeh, by his son, Jesus /Y'shua. On the final day, a shofar (trumpet) is blown, in a unique way. The purpose of the day of blowing the shofar, is to alert and call one to repentance for past sins before Yom Kippur. 

In times past, the shofar sounding was used to:

- give a signal during time of war (Judges 3:27).
- proclaim the start and end of the Jubilee year (Lev. 25:9).
- anoint a new king during coronation service (1 Kings 1:34).
- regather the outcasts of Israel (Isa. 27:13).
- warn the people of danger (Amos 3:6).
- declare the arrival of the Messiah (Zech. 9:14).

Why is this year any different?

Well, it is interesting to note that within this year, there culminates some notables occurrences.

It's the end of the 70 year generation of the present state of Israel and the Year of Jubilee. It was in 1947, that the UN passed a resolution to grant the land of Israel, to the Jews, as their homeland. According to Torah, God's Law, all possessions should return to it's rightful owner. As a side note, twenty years, after the UN Resolution to grant Israel its land, in 1967, Jerusalem was returned to it's rightful owner, Israel. That, too, was a Year of Jubilee.

On Sept. 23, 2017, for the first time in 2000 years, the astronomical signs of Revelation 12 will occur.
Could the rest of the chapter be too far away?

What does it all mean?

With the last 20 years having been the greatest timespan ever for natural and manmade disasters and wars and rumors of war, one cannot deny the possibilities.

...and that's what you'll learn, When You Search For The Truth.

Shalom

A Journey Into The Supernatural: The Seven Levels Of Scriptural Interpretation

Did you know that there are, at least, seven levels of scriptural interpretation? While other religious books have multiple levels of interpretation, the Bible sets itself way above the competition, showing that it is not only a Holy Book, but a supernatural message system, from God, himself.


While I will not take you into the weeds, I would like to show those who are interested, the seven levels, that is there, to help us dig deep into the Word of God, in order to edify ourselves and others. They are:

Literal: This is where you take the words in their usual or most basic sense, without metaphor or allegory. Reading, at the literal level, requires no special training. It says what it means and means what is says. Pretty straight-forward.

Metaphoric/Allegorical: Unfortunately, it is the level, which is most abused. It is a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance. It is close to the Model level, but usually not an accounting of an actual event.

For example: The scriptures refer to God as Elohim, which means, "Gods". This doesn't mean that God is multiple individual gods, but is a metaphorical reference to his multidimensionality. Another great example is how God has chosen to reveal himself, such as the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, A Great Fortress, a Rock, the Breath, etc. Again, it is not that God is multiple persons or gods, it is God's way of showing his multidimensionality to a lesser dimensional creature, such as us humans.

Modeling: Where the story is true, but has a multidimensional depth, which has a different literal message. A great example of this is the story of Melchizedek. The story of Melchizedek is a real historical event, but points to the Messiah. Genesis 14, Hebrews 7. While Melchizedek was a real person, his attributes reveal the Messiah. You can also go to Melchizedek: King of Salem for the full story. 

Moralistic/Legalistic: A moral, ethical or legalistic teaching through literal straight-forward, allegorical or other means. Examples are Y'shua/Jesus' parables, Sermon on the Mount, The Law, etc.

In my opinion, the next three are BIGGIES. This is where the Bible goes light years beyond other supposed holy books and their claims of being from God.

Prophetic: Where the story or interpretation is prophetic, the foretelling of a future person or event. Another super example of this level can be found in Daniel chapter nine, where Daniel gives the exact day of the Messiah's first coming. Read about it here at: Daniel Foretold The Exact Date Of The Messiah's First Coming

Codal: One of my favorites, for it shows God goes above and beyond to reward the diligent reader. It also a fulfillment of God's promise to the Remnant, found in Proverbs 25:2.

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.

It's a scriptural excerpt where the individual words, when put together, gives a message, to the reader. A great example of this one can be found within the genealogy of Genesis 5. Go to the following link for a great example. Supernatural Messages Embedded Within The Scriptures Biblical Codes are part of this level, but one must remember the literal first level, before indulging.

Personal: This is where God speaks to us and gives us a personal message through his scriptures. Even though Peter warns us, 2 Peter 1, about personal interpretations of the scriptures, an in-depth reading of his warning shows that scripture must interpret scripture. Therefore, your personal message must not go outside or go against the literal interpretation.

Now, have fun. But, remember, as we dig deeper into God's Word, remember Acts 17:11. 

Received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if it is true.

Nehushtan: The Sin Of The Asherah Poles

Did you know that many Christians do not realize that they are guilty of the sin, known as Nehushtan, within the Jewish community ?

First a little background.

In the book of Bamidbar, Numbers, we find the story of when many Israelites were dying, because the sting of a serpent. As an interesting sidenote, the Hebrew rendering has them as flying fiery serpents.  Most scholars and Jewish and Christian scientists now believe they were the now extinct pterosaur, but that's another blog entry.

In this story, God tells Moses to set up a Pole, with a Brass Serpent on it. God told Moses and the Israelites that whoever looked upon it would not die. Bottom line: The serpent on the pole did not save them, but their faith, in what God said, did. As a side note, please keep in mind, that it has always been taught that the serpent represented their sin and the brass was judgement. Together, they are judged sin.


Fast forward to the time of Hezekiah, as documented in 2 Kings 18, we find that long after the Moses Serpent on the Staff incident, the Jews were not only still worshipping the original Serpent on the Staff, they were also erecting duplicates of the Serpent on the Staff and worshiping them. They were known as Asherah Poles. In obedience to YHWH, Hezekiah removed all the Asherah Poles.

Now, fast forward to the time of Y'shua, Jesus, specifically his conversation with Nicodemus, in John 3. Y'shua strangely mentions the Serpent on the Pole, as an old testament reference to his soon to be sacrifice. Why?

First and foremost, as a metaphoric reference/prophecy of a future pole sacrifice, with the judged sin of mankind upon it.

Second, so we would not make the same mistake that the Jews did and raise the Serpent (Judged Sin) on the Pole (Cross) higher than YHWH. 

Now, fast forward to today, look at the majority of modern day Christianity. They have taken the Cross with God's Son, who became our sin judged and raised him higher than God, himself. Yes, because of Y'shua's obedient unto death, he was elevated to be equal standing with God, becoming heir to the throne of David. However, there is rarely any reference to YHWH, our Father, within many Christian churchs. It all Jesus. Again, he has that God -Given priveledge to be worshipped, but not to the exclusion of his Father, our Father, who is in Heaven. The One and Only God.

That is Nehushtan: The Sin Of The Asherah Poles. Raising Y'shua, Jesus, higher than God himself, sometimes even eliminating God.

Are you guilty?

Hazon Gabriel, God Has A Way Of Authenticating His Truth!

Did you know that there are some who say that Y'shua, Jesus, made up the idea of a dying and resurrected Messiah? Most mainstream Jews and Muslims actually say the there is no scriptural or cultural evidence that shows a picture of the Messiah, resembling the Messianic picture put forth by Y'shua, Jesus, within the 1st century Middle East. However, a recent archeological find, found in the same area as the Dead Sea Scrolls, has shown that the idea of two separate Messiahs, a suffering and a victorious/conquering Messiah, was indeed prevalent, within the scriptural and cultural society of the Middle East, specifically, within Israel and her surrounding communities.

Found in 2000, Gabriel's Revelation, also called Hazon Gabriel or the Jeselsohn Stone, is a three-foot-tall (one metre) stone tablet with 87 lines of Hebrew text written in ink, containing a collection of short prophecies written in the first person and dated  to sometime within the  1st century BC.

Amazingly, one of the prophesies specifically foretells of a man who would be would be killed by the Romans and be  resurrected in three days. This would be a prophesy written up to 100 years before the time of Y’shua, Jesus, just as the Romans were beginning to expand their empire into the Middle East.

As a side note, for those who deny the scriptural evidence, try looking into Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22, as starters.

So, next time someone tries to tell you that Y'shua, Jesus, and his followers, tried to introduce a new type of Messiah or a new line of cultural or religious thought into the Jewish culture, during the 1st century, remind them of the Hazon Gabriel, and remind them of their true Jewish Roots.

Come Now, Let Us Reason Together! God Proven Logically.

Did you know that your inner thoughts prove that Satan is alive and well? It doesn't matter if you believe in God or not, everyone has problems doing things, that they know are the right things to do. Even if it's only something that you really want to do, disobedience is constantly being sowed within you. Think about it. This is true, even if you are trying to do something that only you feel is right. If you are true with yourself, you will admit there is always some force, which is in opposition to you.

The Bible calls that force by the name of Satan, the opposer, the railer, one that is known as the deceiver who leads humanity astray. The world and Satan will attempt to prove that Satan is a figment of the imagination. Again, think about it. That is exactly what you would expect a deceiver to do, to keep his reality in flux, just beyond the point of certified reality. Allowing you to admit to yourself that Satan is real, alive and well, would prove that God is real.

Isaiah 1:18 says:

Proceed logically and judge for yourself, says YHWH.

That's what God and his Word encourages you to do. That's what logic and your logical mind tells you to do, deep down inside. Isn't funny how there is a force telling you not to? Isn't the constant opposition, proof of the truth, that resides in logic?

...and that's what you'll find, When You Search For The Truth.

Big Pharma Are Drug Dealers That Practice Witchcraft???

Did you know that most Bible scholars translates the Greek word, Pharmakeia, as witchcraft? Therefore, every time you read witchcraft, in the Bible, it should be read as Pharmacology or Drug Dealer. That's right. Pharmekeia means those who use and/or administers drugs. This Greek word implies that Pharmacists, Drug Dealers and Drug Users are in the same boat. Furthermore, Galations 5:19-21 says that these individuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

So, does that mean that all Pharmacists, Drug Dealers and Drug Users practice witchcraft and are eternally damned? No, but they are precariously close to judgement for their actions. 

In addition, I do want to point out that this is another example of a so called scholars not knowing the language and translating, with their emotion or translating, without doing the necessary legwork, needed for a proper translation.

Now, let's look at an actual word of word translation of the same passage.

Now, works of the flesh present itself in sexual immorality, impurity and indecency, involvement with the worship of false gods, the use or the administering of drugs and herbs to induce an altered state,  contention, excitement of mind, fervor of spirit, fierce anger; in selfish ambition, partisanship, division, following their own doctrine; drunkenness, orgies and things like these. I warn you now as I have warned you before: those who do such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God!      

A simple historical investigation, of the word Pharmekeia, reveals that witches used chemicals or drugs to induce an altered state of consciousness, to invoke the spirits. Inducing an altered state of consciousness actually opens a doorway into the spiritual world and provides evil and unclean spirits a clear path to enter the individual and our reality. This clearly shows that drug abuse is the main object of Paul's warning, in Galations 5:19-21. This also show how Biblical scholars injected witchcraft in the place of drug dealers.

Does thid let the present day field of Pharma of the hook?

Absolutely not! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that Pharma is continuing to supply their "witch's brew" of various chemicals to hook the human race, into states of euphoria, in an effort to relieve our pain and reality woes. Each time we use these foreign chemicals, our bodies natural response is a want for more and more. We become numb to our reality. We become numb to our spiritual connection to God.

We must ask ourselves, "why?" Why is the Pharmaceutical Industry driven to provide us the newest strains of conscious bending drugs? Money? No Doubt. However, could it be another diabolical way, used by Satan, to disconnect humanity from God?
