HEBREW ROOTS STUDIES
People ask me, “What is your theological/doctrinal position?” my answer is, “I have no position at all theologically, but my boss, Yeshua has one and my job is to implement His position in this world.”
Another big difference between this writing and others of its kind is the denomination of its author. I have none. The works of people are biased by their beliefs. Most people belonging to a denomination are biased, and they tend to change the Bible to suit their beliefs. As I am non-denominational, I change my beliefs, to suit the Bible. So you can rest assured that when I try to convince you that the Bible says something, it really does say it.
“Let us read the Sacred texts in terms of what they say,
not what we have to superimpose on these texts.
We will come to this very distinct conclusion.”
-Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677)
“It is possible to evangelize the world in this generation, if the
Church will but do her duty. The trouble is not with the heathen. A
dead Church will prevent it, if it is prevented. Why should it not be
accomplished? God will have all men to be saved and come unto
the knowledge of the truth. The resources of the Church are
boundless. Let the will of the Church be brought into line with the
will of God, and nothing will be found to be impossible. May God
grant it!” – Griffith John
“The Church has not yet touched the fringe of the possibilities of
intercessory prayer. Her largest victories will be witnessed when
individual Christians everywhere come to recognize their
priesthood unto God and day by day give themselves unto prayer.”
– John R. Mott
“Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom. If
you may have everything by asking in His Name, and nothing
without asking, I beg you to see how absolutely vital prayer is.”
– C. H. Spurgeon
Beginning with NIMROD And the TOWER of BABYLON on the plains of SHINAR, and continuing until today, the Satanically ruled Babylonian system of Governments and Religions has never left mankind! YAHWEH Elohim, our God, the Creator of Darkness and Light, has allowed mankind to continue to use and develop this Babylonian model throughout history. From the Watchers described in the Book of Enoch, the Nephilim, Anakim and Rephaim, mighty men of old, the stone images of “gods” on Easter [Ishtar] Island in the Pacific Ocean, the Meso-American “gods” of human sacrifice, the religions of cannibalism and death, and the many bloody kings, dictators, popes and conquerors described in history show that the story of mankind is one of blood and death sowed on the infamous pages of man’s sojourns on this planet Earth. This is how it was and this is how it shall be until the end comes and YESHUA returns. Myriads of human beings have been summarily slaughtered with malice aforethought, in the name of Religion and in the name of some god, and men, in the name of the “God” of the Bible reimaged, have accomplished the largest slaughtering of their fellow human beings as recorded from ancient times until now. The Biases of men color and obscure the truth, even though it is self-evident!
I actually believe that Yahweh [YHVH] God has slowly been restoring His truths to the church bit by bit over the centuries, mostly since the Great Reformation of the middle ages. If you look at church history you will see that it started with “Justification by Faith” in the 1500’s, then the “New Birth” and Sanctification, then Baptism by Immersion, then healing, then Baptism of the Holy Spirit with ‘tongues’, etc, until today we have the opportunity to fully enter into virtually everything that the early church entered into – and powerful Spirit-filled Revivals are today happening around the globe, primarily in third world countries. The church has come full circle in many ways, but still I feel we need one last Great Hebrew roots based Reformation to fully restore all of the scripture understanding that was lost through the Traditions, Takanot and Ma’asim of men.
It has taken a very long time for the church to emerge out of the dark ages, and there have been many “heroes” along the way. To me, men like John Wesley, George Whitefield, Charles Grandison Finney, etc, are a great inspiration – and I write about them all the time. But yes – they lived in an era when Christianity seemingly had less light than she does today. Thus I believe all the people of those times and also the present time, will be judged and affirmed by the light that they walked in. It is as simple as that. I do not condemn them at all – in fact I admire many of those old time revival preachers and learn as much from them as I can, especially those in the Brush Arbor revivals of the 1800s, a cardinal century in the faith. The study of biblical Hebrew Roots occurring today and for the over last quarter century is another step forward in understanding and promoting the beauty of scriptural truth.
The “New” Testament is a trumpet call by the writers of scripture to defend Father God’s Torah as Jesus did, while modern semi-paganized Christianity throws it on the dung heap. I find it difficult to accept the claims of any religious tradition that accepts the Edict of Constantine in 321AD that changed the biblical eternal 7th day Sabbath as being in authority over and in place of scripture. The same church tradition that cannot count to 3 days and 3 nights; that replaces God’s Holy days in scripture kept by Jesus with 2 totally pagan “CHURCH” holidays, Christmas and Easter, and that denigrates the Hebrew language Jesus and the Apostles spoke, and instead, being in favor of a limited Greek pagan rooted language, which was developed to worship the sungods of Mount Olympus. Paul defended YHWH God’s Torah Laws in Romans 2 through 8, Galatians, Ephesians and in all his letters and explained the casting of the CURSES of Torah on the dung heap that Jesus won the right to do via His final victory over those curses on the Cross.
The traditions of men put the things of God to naught!
I am eternally grateful for the positive comments I have received from serious and mature Bible students sent by email and comments to my postings and forwarding. To stir one mind and one heart to delve deeper into the liquid gold depths of scripture is my intent and I shout Omein to the following quote of Emerson:
“Beware when great God lets loose a thinker on this planet. Then all things are at risk. It is as when a conflagration has broken out in a great city, and no man knows when it will end. There is not a piece of science but its flank may be turned tomorrow; there is not any literary reputation, not the so-called eternal names of fame, that may not be revised and condemned. The very hopes of man, the thoughts of his heart, the religion of nations, the manners and morals of mankind are all at the mercy of a new generalization.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
ALL advances in biblical knowledge including the current Hebrew Roots of Scripture studies have been soundly opposed by biased traditionalists and the work of men is done with vigor, especially by those ecclesiastics in Catholic churches that have murdered multiple millions of the children of Judah over the centuries, to their eternal damnation by the Almighty Elohim of Israel. The Hebrew Roots study of the Bible is NOT a cult or sideshow, but is a study that greatly enhances the purity of scripture as it was originally written, much to the dismay of fearful tradition bound clerics.
