The Great Commission

OUR COMMISSION is to WORK for YESHUA, ACTING ON IT all of our Lives

I remember when I joined the US Navy on my seventeenth birthday; I took an oath that commissioned me to be a genuine Navy sailor and to serve as such during the specific time that I was contracted and commissioned to serve the country in that capacity during the Korean War. After taking the oath, I entered officially into the Navy and was promptly sent off to boot camp for a wrenching learning experience that changed my life. It was a time of refashioning me into a sailor Warrior trained to kill for America and to defend our Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. I have always held that commissioning moment of time as ironclad in obedience and unchangeable for as long as my life existed on planet earth.
The same ceremonial and dedicative principle applies to me and to all of us at the point of our salvation and entrance into the boot camp learning phase of our time of serving the Kingdom of YHWH God on earth. This also changes our life completely and much more profoundly, this time as a spiritually reborn child of the Almighty Elohim through Yeshua’s Grace. As all saved believers well know, we were immediately sent off to God’s boot camp to be transformed into new creatures in Yeshua Messiah. It was a joyful but wrenching time for us all and at some point in our training period, we were given our marching orders, our commission to serve if you will. This time, we were commanded to protect and preserve the BIBLE, God’s instructions for life, against all enemies, foreign and domestic. As our ancestors defended the Constitution against a foreign Sovereign, the British monarch, George; so we defend the Bible against a foreign princely ruler, HaSatan. In both instances, the Commission is absolute. The only difference is the timeframe set at the beginning of our contract. An earthly commission ends usually with a formal discharge document, at which time the commitment to serve comes to a formal end and one returns to a “normal” life.
The Commission to serve the Kingdom of God on Earth also comes to a formal end by the set apart servant’s first death and the admission of the faithful soul into the halls of Glory, there to dwell in joy unspeakable forever. While we remain on this ball of mud, the other party to our Commission, Yeshua, has given us a continuing task to perform and we are expected to ACT on it. Some believers go for it and do a credible and wonderful job as servants of the Most High, but unfortunately, most do not, but become pew sitters under the one man circus called the “church.”

Philippians 1: 1-8

“To: All God’s people united with the Messiah Yeshua and living in Philippi (and around the world in all the ages of Grace), along with the congregation leaders and shammashim (plural): Grace to you and shalom from God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
I thank my God every time I think of you. Whenever I pray for all of you I always pray with joy, because you have shared in proclaiming the Good News from the very first day until now, and I am sure of this: that the One who began a good work among you will keep it growing until it is completed on the Day of the Messiah Yeshua. It is right for me to think this way about you all, because I have you on my heart; for whether I am in chains or defending and establishing the Good News, you are all sharing with me in this privileged work. God can testify how I long for all of you with the deep affection of the Messiah Yeshua.”

WHY does Christianity today fail to ‘turn the world upside down’ as the set apart emissary’s of the first three centuries did.’ They have gradually lapsed into Babylonian practices and false premises and the church has failed miserably to follow the biblical model of Yeshua’s days.

Ezekiel 33: 30-33 says:
“Now you, human being, your people are gathering and talking about you by the walls and in the doorways of houses. They’re saying to each other, each one telling his brother, ‘Come, let’s go and hear the latest word coming from Adonai.’ So then they come to you, as people do, sit in front of you as my people, and hear your words; but they don’t act on them. For with their mouths they flatter you, but their hearts are set on their own self-interest; so for them you are like a love-song sung by someone with a nice voice who can play an instrument well — they hear your words, but they don’t act on them. So when all this comes true, then, at last, they will realize that a prophet has been there with them.”

This is a part of that most effective model that so attracted millions to salvation and solid growth in the faith once delivered to the saints.

This is the ancient pathway of 10+ righteous men and women followed by Yeshua/Jesus, Sha’ul [Paul], the Talmudim [disciples] and the set-apart Emissaries [Apostles]. We also suggest following this ancient earthly model of teaching and worship ordained and blessed by the Almighty Ancient of Days in the first century.
Paul addressed the ‘shammashim’ in Philippians quoted above. Who are these persons and why are they so important to fulfilling the Great Commission?

Shammash, also spelled shamash or shammas (Hebrew: “servant”), plural shammashim, shamashim, or shammasim,  a servant (central Candle in the Menorah) and a salaried sexton in a synagogue whose duties now generally include secretarial work and assistance to the cantor, or chazzan, who directs the public synagogue meeting.
Most synagogues have at least one shamash, and Messianic synagogues are no exception. According to one online definition:
A shamash (שמש) is a person who assists in the running of a synagogue and ensures that its needs are met (for example, that the Jewish prayer services run smoothly). He may function as an assistant to a rabbi, or as the secretary or personal assistant to a Chassidic Rebbe). The role of the shamash crosses over to the responsibility of the Gabbai.
This definition of the role of a shamash is almost universally understood in Judaism, but shamashim of this kind are not found anywhere in Scripture. The role of a traditional shamash is akin to a church’s sexton, and it is an appointed rather than an ordained position.
Messianic shamashim are different in that they do derive their definition and function from Scripture –albeit the Greek New Covenant Scriptures –and they are ordained by the laying on of hands of the elders. Although we refer to them by the Hebrew word “shamash” for cultural reasons, they are more authentically described in America by the Greek word “diakoneo” or the English equivalent word “deacon.”
New covenant shamashim are very important in our communities, as they serve multiple roles in caring for both people and congregational property.
Acts 6:1-6 tells us the circumstances upon which shamashim were first ordained:
“Around this time, when the number of talmidim was growing, the Greek-speaking Jews began complaining against those who spoke Hebrew that their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution. So the Twelve called a general meeting of the talmidim and said, ‘It isn’t appropriate that we should neglect the Word of God to serve tables. Brothers, choose seven men among yourselves who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will appoint them to be in charge of this important matter, but we ourselves will give our full attention to praying and to serving the Word.’ What they said was agreeable to the whole gathering. They chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Ruach HaKodesh, Philip, Prochoros, Nikanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicholas, who was a proselyte from Antioch. They presented these men to the emissaries, who prayed and laid their hands on them.”
Now it is true that the initial ordination of shamashim was sparked by the community’s need to see to a fair daily distribution for widows. However, we see how in many cases, shamashim such as Philip were used in ways that far exceeded serving tables and funding the poor and widows. (Acts 8:5-40)
Philip, in particular, was noted for his gift of evangelism in Acts 21:8
“On the next day we who were Paul’s companions departed and came to Caesarea, and entered the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, and stayed with him.”
Even the Messianic woman shamash was recognized by Paul. In Romans 16:1-2 Paul says: “I am introducing to you our sister Phoebe, shammash of the congregation at Cenchrea, so that you may welcome her in the Lord, as God’s people should, and give her whatever assistance she may need from you; for she has been a big help to many people, including myself.”
The ministry of shamash must have been seen as spiritual and not merely mechanical, for in his letter to Timothy, right after listing the character requirements of eldership, Paul gives a similar list for the qualification of shamashim.
In 1 Timothy 3:8-13 Paul says:
“Likewise, the shammashim must be of good character, people whose word can be trusted. They must not give themselves to excessive drinking or be greedy for dishonest gain. They must possess the formerly hidden truth of the faith with a clean conscience. First, let them be tested; then, if they prove themselves blameless, let them be appointed as shammashim. Similarly, the wive’s must be of good character, not gossips, but temperate, faithful in everything. Let the shammashim each be faithful to his wife, managing his children and household well. For those who serve well as shammashim gain good standing for themselves and much boldness in the trust that comes through Yeshua the Messiah.”
This appointed office description is only one of the 10 plus leadership positions in a true early Messianic congregation and we follow this model as the early Apostles did.

The Office:
3 persons or more fill this Pastoral office, allowing the Bet Din to minister the Word unhindered by administrative work:
Parnassim (Pastor), 1 Tim.3:12-13; Eph.4:7-13; Peter 2:22-25 is the social worker along with 2 or more women (Ohana, Shammashim, Rebbetzin) and together they are Deacon and/or Deaconess in modern church terminology. They care for the poor, are in charge of the Mikvah [Immersion], the administration of funds, buildings, equipment, visiting the sick, attending to orphans and widows and operate the “Burial Society”.
The Shamash (Servant candle) announces the Shabbat by blowing 6 blasts on the Shofar. He is the Ba’al Shofar (Sounder of the Shofar). They also perform the modern office duties of President, Secretary and Treasurer. These are a part of the 10 righteous ones required to fill all ‘church’ offices.
The TRUE ‘church’ of Yeshua is NOT a ‘one man show’! True Christianity is a participatory entity, and not a group of pew sitters led by a pulpiteer. The church today has strayed far from the biblical model, thereby choking its membership into silence and sleep. Much has been said and written on the ‘commission’ given to the church 2 thousand years ago, to ‘go ye into all the world’, and the church has done so successfully until lately. The last couple of centuries have seen a steady decline in Christianity as the Christian church has cut itself adrift from its ancient Hebrew Roots. The ‘new way of doing church’ so sought after by terrified Pastors losing their congregations is nothing but pure paganism dressed in church rhetoric and PC worded sermons. The reasons for this suicide of faith are many, but Yeshua’s words and teachings are our only reliable witness to this entropic slide into irrelevance and spiritual decay sneaking into the little flock of Messiah.
The PARABLE of the TALENTS in Matthew 25, a bitter lesson
“So stay alert, because you know neither the day nor the hour. “For it will be like a man about to leave home for a while, who entrusted his possessions to his servants. To one he gave five talents [equivalent to a hundred years’ wages]; to another, two talents; and to another, one talent — to each according to his ability. Then he left. The one who had received five talents immediately went out, invested it and earned another five. Similarly, the one given two earned another two. But the one given one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.
“After a long time, the master of those servants returned to settle accounts with them. The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the other five and said, ‘Sir, you gave me five talents; here, I have made five more.’ His master said to him, ‘Excellent! You are a good and trustworthy servant. You have been faithful with a small amount, so I will put you in charge of a large amount. Come and join in your master’s happiness!’ Also the one who had received two came forward and said, ‘Sir, you gave me two talents; here, I have made two more.’ His master said to him, ‘Excellent! You are a good and trustworthy servant. You have been faithful with a small amount, so I will put you in charge of a large amount. Come and join in your master’s happiness!’
“Now the one who had received one talent came forward and said, ‘I knew you were a hard man. You harvest where you didn’t plant and gather where you didn’t sow seed. I was afraid, so I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here! Take what belongs to you!’ ‘You wicked, lazy servant!’ said his master, ‘So you knew, did you, that I harvest where I haven’t planted? And that I gather where I didn’t sow seed? Then you should have deposited my money with the bankers, so that when I returned, I would at least have gotten back interest with my capital! Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has ten.For everyone who has something will be given more, so that he will have more than enough; but from anyone who has nothing, even what he does have will be taken away. As for this worthless servant, throw him out in the dark, where people will wail and grind their teeth!’
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, accompanied by all the angels, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be assembled before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates sheep from goats. The ‘sheep’ he will place at his right hand and the ‘goats’ at his left.
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take your inheritance, the Kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you made me your guest, I needed clothes and you provided them, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ Then the people who have done what God wants will reply, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and make you our guest, or needing clothes and provide them? When did we see you sick or in prison, and visit you?’ The King will say to them, ‘Yes! I tell you that whenever you did these things for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did them for me!’
“Then he will also speak to those on his left, saying, ‘Get away from me, you who are cursed! Go off into the fire prepared for the Adversary and his angels! For I was hungry and you gave me no food, thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, a stranger and you did not welcome me, needing clothes and you did not give them to me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ Then they too will reply, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, thirsty, a stranger, needing clothes, sick or in prison, and not take care of you?’ And he will answer them, ‘Yes! I tell you that whenever you refused to do it for the least important of these people, you refused to do it for me!’ They will go off to eternal punishment, but those who have done what God wants will go to eternal life.”

Our individual commissions and the ‘Great Commission’ that is so forgotten of late by the Laodicean Church members can only be restored by the same members recommitting themselves fully to their assigned Holy tasks. The world is destined for dissolution and decay. What is to become of the lukewarm Christian? The obvious pathway of the lazy pew sitter is only leading downward into eternal irrelevance along with the lazy and irrelevant church and its destination is the lake of fire referenced by Yeshua in the quote above from Matthew.
Please, believer, act upon this warning! The world church holds no water and is a Broken Cistern. Leave it and seek a better way outlined for you by Yeshua who is pleading before the Throne of Heaven for you and for your Commission.

False Prophets

FALSE PROPHETS IN CHRISTIANITY TODAY, HATH GOD SAID…

This short treatise asks the question posed above and then answers it with Scripture in line with a minimum of commentary. The SPIRIT of Lawlessness [Torahlessness] must be driven from the Churches if they are to continue at all with any force or effectiveness in society!

Modern, Western, Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christianity has filled the ranks of believers with many persons who profess to be “Prophets of God/Israel” or “Shepherds of God/Israel”, and who claim a personal communication pipeline to the heart of the Almighty Elohim and His Son, Yeshua/Jesus, the Messiah of Israel. They claim that this connection to the Almighty gives them the authority to speak to the “body of Christ” on God’s behalf as His mouthpiece between Him and you as a believer in Yeshua/Jesus. The inference is that God has selected them to give you God’s instructions for your conduct of your future life. This speaking to you by these people is called by them, “personal prophecy”. Is this scriptural? NO! Many make a good living, both in the Churches and on TV, by dispensing “personal prophecy’s” to the house of God’s church membership throughout the world. False prophets promulgate non-scriptural practices, spectacular, manufactured demonstrations, false healings and phony, manufactured miracles, which reside outside of scripture and they do it with impunity; and deceive the multitude of biblical illiterates out there in modern Christianity.

I have received many “personal prophecies” over the last 50 years or so; most of which came over the last 30 years from the Evangelical and the Pentecostal community, and have then bounced them off scripture, my life experience and the test of time, in order to test both their validity and possible fulfillment in my life as a good Berean should. Without exception, they were false, unfulfilled prophecies. Most of these prophets came up to me with these words, “God has given me a BURDEN [including the words, “on my heart,” sometimes] for you!” Remember this introductory phrase. They then usually lay hands on you if you will let them, and then proceed with their “word from the LORD” for you, which is always a restorative blessing type word. The track record of such self-proclaimed prophets is dismal at best. Even those who claim to be of Jeremiahs ilk, who spoke of calamity to come in good faith and with a proper discerning of the “signs” of the times, failed to convince the body of the Church by their words of prophecy. In other words, time passed, nothing happened, and all hearers forgot it with the exception of the prophet, who then set the unfulfilled prophecy aside or excused both himself and his god, and conveniently forgot the prophecy. I recall that the big name Televangelists and date setters never apologized or repented of their error to those who bought their books and CDs, but went on with “new” heavenly dreams and visions given to them from an inept god who made prophetic boo-boo’s occasionally. We are not naming names in this article as we have already done that in a previous article posted recently on the website. The article, “A Kundalini spirit invades the Churches” names many of these false Prophets, teachers, Pastors and Televangelists. Even so, you can tune in to any Christian TV station such as “God TV”, “CBN” or “TBN”, or surf the web, and find as many of these snake oil salesmen as you can stomach.

What are the hallmarks, and the common denominator of the present day false prophets?
What Charismatic’s enthusiasts say is, “when the Spirit comes upon you it will overcome you with power, slaying you”. Today this has become the common denominator of the Spirits presence with power and is sought after as proof of receiving the “anointing”, whatever that is chosen to mean. Such people as Benny Hinn, Kim Clement, Rod Parsley, Richard Roberts, Todd Bentley and a host of other “word of faith” practitioners on TV and the Internet, have developed it to be a trademark of their meetings. This is not to discount that the Holy Spirit can do unusual things, however before we put a stamp of approval on a practice considered by many to be normal, instead of the unusual, we need to see if it is promoted as such in the Scriptures. It is not.

What do we find? We do not see any of this practiced or even hinted in the Scriptures. When the Holy Spirit came upon Yeshua at His baptism, He came up out of the water; He didn’t collapse and sink down! The Lord Yeshua had power to heal even the worst cases of disease, blindness and crippled limbs, and yet no one who Yeshua ever touched fell over “slain.” Nor do we find Peter or John touching people and causing them to fall over on their back. They did not ask other disciples to stand behind those they were going to lay hands on, to catch them as they toppled backward by the “power”. The New Testament has no people lining up waiting for the “anointing” to be passed on from another, not even the Apostles. Can you picture any of the Apostles running up to people and slapping them on the forehead, or lining people up to be slain? No soft music or hypnotic and repetitive choruses were sung to set an atmosphere for the anointing to fall. No one yelled repetitive phrases like, “Fire!” or “touch” or “More, Lord!” So where does this all come from? Read our article, “Is being slain in the spirit Scriptural” on the website for the Bible truth on this matter.

There are so many battles to fight and so many enemies to face that, understandably, followers of Yeshua are eager to join with those who hold firm the gospel beliefs in the Virgin Birth and the Resurrection of Yeshua; and who also hold to clear Biblical positions on the great issues of religious and social concern in our fractured world and within a compromising Churchianity.

The Pentecostal/charismatic movement with its healings, experiences, signs and wonders; with its impressive ecumenical unity among different denominations and apparent Universalist warmth and joy among so many of those involved, seems to be empowered to “fight the good fight”. But the parables of Matthew 13; those of the sower, the wheat and the tares, remind us that the true, undeceived, Messianic believers just aren’t like this. All is not as it seems in Evangelical circles. The majority who “make commitments and man-made covenants” with joy in their hearts; grow no roots, succumb to the comforts and allures of the world and then many fall away; usually only when the going becomes difficult and disappointment prevails. They may continue to feature strongly in the “church”; praise, pray and prophesy, but they seek to serve both the world and Yahweh, a mixture that has always remained poisonous They are filled with the venom of a pagan mixture of Hindu Kundalini spirits and paganized PC gospels as I wrote upon in the article on that subject.

King Ahab lost his life because the only prophets he would listen to were false soothsaying prophets in 1st Kings 22, who have deceiving spirits in their mouths, placed there by Yahweh, the Creator of Darkness and light. If you keep apostatizing from Yahweh, this is what you get! Ahab would not listen to a true prophet; Mikhay’hu, the only one sent to him by YHWH that spoke truth!

Many people today have had their lives shattered and ruined by false prophets in the Church system and through Christian TV. These charlatans are those dressed in fancy clothes, which are sitting on bully pulpits and on TV thrones of lies and falsity. Yes, Virginia, there is supposedly no Santa Claus in Christendom, but there is a plethora of false prophets and pagan shepherds who lead us into arguing theologically over “The COLOR OF THE WOLF’S HAIR”. Brethren, this should not be so!

YIRMEYAHU [JEREMIAH 23]

“Woe be unto the shepherds that destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” Says Yahweh. Therefore this says Yahweh Elohim of Yisrael against the [false] shepherds that feed My people; “You have scattered My flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: see, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings”, says Yahweh. “And I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. And I will set up shepherds over them that shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be broken, neither shall they be lacking”, says Yahweh. “See, the day’s come”, says Yahweh, “that I will raise to Dawid a Tzadik Branch, and a Melech shall rule and prosper, and shall execute mishpat and justice in the earth. In His days Yahudah shall be saved, and Yisrael shall dwell safely: and this is His Name by which He shall be called, Yahweh- Tzidqaynu. Therefore, see, the days come”, says Yahweh, “that they shall no more say, Yahweh lives, who brought up the children of Yisrael out of the land of Mitzrayim” [Egypt]; But, Yahweh lives, who brought up and who led the zera of Beit Yisrael out of the North Country, and from all countries where I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.” [Exodus II] My heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man overcome by wine, because of Yahweh, and because of His kadosh [Holy] words. “For the land is full of adulterers; for because of a curse the land mourns; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their [spiritual] power is misused. For both prophet and pastor are profane; yes, in My House have I found their wickedness”, says Yahweh.

“Therefore their Halacha [ways] shall be to them as a slippery derech [way] in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall in it: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation by punishment”, says Yahweh. “And I have seen folly in the prophets of Shomron; they prophesied in Ba’al [called “the LORD”], and caused My people Yisrael to go astray. I have seen also in the prophets of Yerushalem a horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of the evildoers, that none does shuv from his wickedness: they are all of them before Me as Sedom, and the inhabitants of it as Amorah.” Therefore this says Yahweh tzevaoth concerning the prophets; “See, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the mayim of poison: for from the prophets of Yerushalem has defilement gone forth into all the land.”

This says Yahweh tzevaoth, “Listen not to the words of the prophets that prophesy to you: they make you go astray: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of Yahweh. They say still to them that despise Me”, Yahweh has said, “You shall have shalom; and they say to everyone that has his Halacha after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. For who has stood in the counsel of Yahweh, and has perceived and heard His word? Who has marked His word, and heard it? See, a whirlwind of Yahweh has gone forth in wrath, even a whirlwind storm: it shall fall severely upon the head of the wicked. The anger of Yahweh shall not shuv [abate], until He has done, and until He has established the thoughts of His heart: in the latter-days [Acharit-Hayamim] you shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My people to listen to My words, then they would have turned them from their evil halacha, and from the evil of their doings.” “Am I an Elohim at hand”, says Yahweh, “and not an Elohim far off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places where I shall not see him?” Says Yahweh. “Do I not fill the heavens and earth?” Says Yahweh. “I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in My Name, saying, “I have dreamed, I have dreamed”. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? Yes, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart [Ezekiel 16:19]; Who attempt to cause My people to forget My Name by their dreams that they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Ba’al.”

His name is YHWH {Yahweh} and is not the KJV driven generic title for Ba’al [the LORD]!

“The prophet that has a dream, let him tell the dream; and he that has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat?” Says Yahweh.

“Is not My word like a fire?” Says Yahweh; “and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? Therefore, see, I am against the prophets”, says Yahweh, “that steal My words every one from his neighbor. See, I am against the prophets”, says Yahweh, “that use their tongues, and say, “He says”. See, I am against them that prophesy false dreams”, says Yahweh, “and those who tell them, and cause My people to go astray by their lies, and by their reckless boasting; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all”, says Yahweh. “And when this people, or the prophet, or a pastor, shall ask you, saying, “What is the burden of Yahweh”? You shall then say to them, “What burden?” I will even forsake you”, says Yahweh. “And as for the prophet, and the pastor, and the people, that shall say, “The burden of Yahweh”, I will even punish that man and his house.” “This shall you say each person to his neighbor, and each person to his brother,” What has Yahweh answered?” And,” What has Yahweh spoken?” “And the ‘burden of Yahweh” shall you mention no more: for every man’s word shall be his own burden; for you have perverted the words of the living Elohim, Yahweh tzevaoth our Elohim.” This shall you say to the prophet,” What has Yahweh answered you?’ And, “What has Yahweh spoken to you?” But since you say, “The burden of Yahweh”; therefore this says Yahweh; Because you say this word, “The burden of Yahweh”, and I have sent to you, saying, You shall not say, “The burden of Yahweh”; “Therefore, see, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of My presence: And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and an everlasting shame, that shall not be forgotten.”

So what is the “BURDEN of Yahweh”? It is forbidden by YHWH God for Prophets, Priests and Pastors to even speak of this BURDEN in prophecy, on pain of being forsaken and cast out of the Kingdom of the Almighty with an everlasting reproach and shame that will not be forgotten! This is one of the most serious curses that I have read in Scripture and has few equal condemnations stated by Yahweh. Yet, Yeshua stated that “his Yoke” is easy and “His BURDEN” is light. Can he say this? YES! But we cannot. Let us, then, take a serious look at the application of this word in Scripture in light of the two or more required witnesses and how YHWH and Yeshua uses “Burden” in its ancient Hebrew context.

“Burden”: Strongs Concordance #H4853, #H5447 as defined in BDB Hebrew/English Lexicon. A load, a tribute, a figure of people as a burden, charge, forced labor, a weight, oppression, oracle, an extraction of debt and a pronouncement song and prophecy.

The word in scripture is used only in the negative context and one must put some serious twist on this word to use it as a “Blessing” or in a restorative sense in modern “personal” prophecy pronouncements given by Televangelists or persons in any Church meeting.

Thus sayeth Scripture:
Yesha’yahu 13:1; The Burden of Babylon.
Yesha’yahu 15:1; The Burden of Moab.
Yesha’yahu 17:1; The Burden of Damascus.
Yesha’yahu 19:1; The Burden of Egypt.
Yesha’yahu 21:1; The Burden of the desert of the sea.

Yesha’yahu 21:11;The Burden of Dumah. He calleth me out….

Yesha’yahu 21:13; The Burden upon Arabia.

Yesha’yahu 22:1; The Burden of the valley of vision.

Yesha’yahu 23:1; The Burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish…

Yesha’yahu 36:6;The Burden of the beasts of the south.

Yirmeyahu 17:21; bear no Burden on the Sabbath Day.

Ezekiel 12:10: This Burden concerneth the prince in Yerushalem.

Nahum 1:1; The Burden of Nineveh.
Habakkuk 1:1; The Burden which Habakkuk, the prophet did see.

Zechariah 9:1; The Burden of the Word of Yahweh.
Zechariah 12:1; The Burden of the Word of YHWH for Israel.

Malachi 1:1; The Burden of the Word of YHWH to Israel.

Revelation 2:24; I will put upon you no other Burden…

The Bible tells us many times, to BEAR ONE ANOTHERS BURDEN and thus to pray for one another in love. We will do that because we are Yeshua’s children and trained by the Holy Spirit, so that these things are as natural as breathing to us. We love it so! But the “Burden of the LORD, Yahweh”, is another matter entirely. We are not to take upon ourselves the “Burden of Yahweh [the LORD]” or even mention it in answer to a question or as an assertion of being in a cozy communication with the Almighty Creator according to these Scriptures. It is His business of Judgments on mankind and His Majesty that He is talking about and I think that he is telling us to butt out of these areas that are His exclusively. The light yoke on Yeshua’s shoulders is the Living Word of His person and the light Burden that it carries is His Father’s Torah instructions for LIFE! THAT BURDEN, Yeshua orders us to carry! Matthew 5:17-19 says that we are not even to THINK that He has done away with His Fathers Torah, and Christianity today rejects both the Almighty’s Torah books and Yeshua’s statement? Shame on them “until heaven and earth pass away”!

The very center and fullness of understanding YHWH God’s Word can only be accomplished by the study and teaching of Yahweh’s complete, loving instructions (His Torah) by those persons who have been exercised by that same Word and then sent forth as teachers with the Holy Spirit walking alongside of them.

Any Bible teacher in the 21st Century; be he/she Rabbi, Minister, Priest or “layperson” is faced with a daunting task; that of addressing nearly 2,000 years of cumulative lies and half-truths shoveled into both Judaism and Christianity by people who are identified in 2 Peter 3: 16 as “uninstructed and unstable” and who distort the Scriptures (Torah) to their own destruction, as well as their listening student’s destruction.
The present day evangelistic prophets seen on TV and on the Internet, the prophets in many primarily charismatic and Pentecostal Churches and the prophets in traveling ministries bear no resemblance to the Biblical prophets of YHWH God, but instead, mimic the Bibles false prophets of Ba’al and King Ahab, who are subject to lying spirits. Yahweh allows these lying spirits free reign through lying prophets and soothsayers, in order to test the spirit of men to decide for himself or herself whom they will serve, YHWH God or mammon.

Ezekiel vs America

AMERICA’S FALSE SHEPHERDS; SO SAYS EZEKIEL

 If America is the New Replacement to Israel as Replacement Theologians say, and if America is the New Spiritual Israel as the Christian Church says or if America contains most of the 10 lost tribes of Israel as human History and the Bible Scriptures say, then what do the Ancient Prophets have to say about this Church premise in these last days?

This article looks at some of the commentaries of the Prophet, Ezekiel, that are relevant for the present Church Age and his written address to the current doctrinal and theological basis for American Christians to believe in as it is given by their Pastoral leadership in written and spoken form.

In this direct translation of the Hebrew TANAKH Scrolls, I have not included the confusing Catholic numbering system with its numbers in the middle of sentences, etc. The read only makes clear sense in its original text.

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.

A scribe writing of these Holy things is only as good and reliable as the one who bids him to write the things that have been seen or heard given by the initiator of what is written. If the prophet, apostle or patriarch is wrong for whatever reason or biased in his worldview, then what the scribe faithfully writes is of no value whatsoever. The scribe is as responsible for the erroneous writing as the one who bids him to write. The people sitting in pews are as responsible for receiving false teachings as the pastor or teacher is when false doctrines and biased teachings are being taught to them from his mouth. So, pew sitters are the same as scribes if they receive false words into their minds and hearts without question. Ananias and Sapphira are examples for us to look at because they acted on false information. Both were equally wrong. The minds of men and women are to be compared to the blank paper of a scribe and are always ready to receive and process new information sent as knowledge. WISDOM is required up front to process that input as true or false. Scripture always interprets Scripture. Two or more witnesses are always required by scripture to validate Scripture.

Our Lord, Yeshua, repeatedly instructed us: “Be not deceived.” That is an imperative: a command, not simply a suggestion. But how? What are the tools to prevent our being deceived or misled?

The context of a passage is always a primary consideration in the search for understanding of a passage of Scripture. It is often cited, “A verse out of context is a pretext.” And, indeed, one must always maintain an awareness of both who is doing the speaking and the audience being addressed. However, this foundational emphasis can also be a restrictive blindfold to some of a passage’s deeper (and broader) implications.

Ezekiel 33

The thankless job appointment

The word of Yahweh came to me: “Human being, speak to your people; say to them, ‘Suppose I bring the sword on a country, and the people of that country take one of their men and appoint him their watchman. Now if, upon seeing the sword coming against that country, he blows the shofar and warns the people; then, if the sword comes and takes away someone who heard the sound of the shofar but paid no attention to it, the responsibility for that person’s death will be his own —he heard the shofar but paid no attention, so the responsibility for his death is his own; whereas if he had paid attention, he would have saved his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the shofar, so that the people are not warned; and then the sword comes and takes any one of them, that one is indeed taken away in his guilt, but I will hold the watchman responsible for his death. Likewise you, human being — I have appointed you as watchman for the house of Isra’el.

Speaking hard words given by the Almighty

“Therefore, when you hear the word from my mouth, warn them for me. When I tell the wicked person, ‘Wicked person, you will certainly die’; and you fail to speak and warn the wicked person to leave his way; then that wicked person will die guilty; and I will hold you responsible for his death. On the other hand, if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he doesn’t turn from his way; then he will still die guilty, but you will have saved your own life.

“Therefore, you, human being, say to the house of Isra’el: ‘You say, “Our crimes and sins are weighing us down, we’re pining away because of them, how can we even stay alive?”’ Say to them, ‘As I live,’ swears Yahweh Elohim, ‘I take no pleasure in having the wicked person die, but in having the wicked person turn from his way and live. So repent! Turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, house of Isra’el?’

“Next, you, human being, say to your people: ‘The righteousness of the righteous person will not save him, once he starts committing crimes; and likewise, the wickedness of the wicked person will not cause him to fall, once he turns from his wickedness. No, the righteous person cannot live by virtue of [his former righteousness], once he starts sinning. So if, after I tell the righteous person that he will surely live, he begins trusting in his own [former] righteousness and starts committing crimes; then none of his [former] righteous actions will be remembered; on the contrary, he will die for the evil deeds he has committed. Likewise, if, after I tell the wicked person, “You must die,” he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right —if the wicked person restores pledged property and returns what he stole, so that he lives by the laws that give life and does not commit evil deeds; then he will live, he will not die. None of the sins he committed will be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right; he will surely live.’

“Now your people say,‘ Yahweh’s way isn’t fair!’ But it is their way, theirs, that isn’t fair! When the righteous person turns away from his righteousness and commits wickedness, he will die because of it. And when the wicked person turns from his wickedness and does what is lawful and right, he will live because of it. Yet you say, ‘Yahweh’s way isn’t fair!’ House of Isra’el, I will judge each of you according to his ways.”

The Almighty’s time clock or the Cookoo clock

“In the twelfth year of our exile, on the fifth day of the tenth month, a fugitive from Yerushalayim came to me with the news, “The city has been struck.” Now the hand of Yahweh had been on me that evening, before the fugitive arrived — he had opened my mouth prior to his coming to me in the morning, so my mouth was open, and I was no longer mute. Then the word of Yahweh came to me: “Human being, those living in the desolate parts of the land of Isra’el are saying, ‘Avraham was only one, and he inherited the land. But we are many, so [how much more] is the land given to us to inherit!’ Therefore, tell them that Yahweh Elohim says, ‘you eat [flesh] with the blood, you raise your eyes to your idols, and you shed blood — and you still expect to possess the land? You depend on your swords, you commit disgusting practices, and each of you defiles his neighbor’s wife — and you still expect to possess the land?’ Tell them that Yahweh Elohim swears, ‘As I live, those living in the ruins will fall by the sword, those in the countryside I will give to the wild animals to eat, and those in the fortresses and caves will die of the plague. Moreover, I will utterly desolate the land; it will cease taking pride in its power; and the mountains of Isra’el will be so desolate that no one will pass through.’ Then they will know that I am Yahweh, when I have made the land utterly desolate, because of all the disgusting practices they have committed.”

Life on the PC comfort zone

“Now you, human being, your people are gathering and talking about you by the walls and in the doorways of houses. They’re saying to each other, each one telling his brother, ‘Come, let’s go and hear the latest word coming from Yahweh.’ So then they come to you, as people do, sit in front of you as my people, and hear your words; but they don’t act on them. For with their mouths they flatter you, but their hearts are set on their own self-interest; so for them you are like a love-song sung by someone with a nice voice who can play an instrument well — they hear your words, but they don’t act on them. So when all this comes true, then, at last, they will realize that a prophet has been there with them.”

Ezekiel 34

The word of Yahweh came to me: “Human being, prophesy against the shepherds of Isra’el. Prophesy! Tell them, the shepherds, that Yahweh Elohim says this: ‘Woe to the shepherds of Isra’el who feed themselves! Shouldn’t the shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the choice meat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, and you slaughter the best of the herd; but you don’t feed the sheep! You don’t strengthen the weak, heal the sick, bandage the broken, bring back the outcasts or seek the lost; on the contrary, you tyrannize them with crushing force. So they were scattered, without a shepherd, and became food for every wild animal — they were scattered. My sheep wandered around aimlessly on every mountain and hill; yes, my sheep were scattered all over the land, with no one to search for them or look after them.

“‘Therefore, shepherds, hear the word of Yahweh: “As I live,” Yahweh Elohim swears, “because my sheep have become prey, my sheep have become food for every wild animal, since there was no shepherd, since my shepherds didn’t look for my sheep, and instead my shepherds fed themselves but not my sheep,” therefore, shepherds, hear the word of Yahweh! Yahweh Elohim says, “I am against the shepherds. I demand that they hand my sheep back to me. I will not allow them to feed the sheep, and they won’t feed themselves either. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths; they will be food for them no longer.”

EXODUS II, the REAL ALIYAH

“‘For here is what Yahweh Elohim says: “I am taking over! I will search for my sheep and look after them, myself. Just as a shepherd looks after his flock when he finds himself among his scattered sheep, so I will look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered when it was cloudy and dark. I will bring them back from those peoples, gather them from those countries and return them to their own land. Then I will let them feed on the mountains of Isra’el, by the streams and in all the livable places of the land. I will have them feed in good pastures; their grazing ground will be on the high mountains of Isra’el. They will rest in good grazing grounds and feed in rich pastures on Isra’el’s mountains. Yes, I will pasture my sheep; and I will let them rest” says Yahweh Elohim. “I will seek the lost, bring back the outcasts, bandage the broken, and strengthen the sick. But the fat and the strong I will destroy — I will feed them with judgment.”

THE REAL JUDGE CLEANS HIS HOUSE

“‘As for you, my flock,’ Yahweh Elohim says this: ‘I will judge between sheep and other sheep, between rams and Billy-goats. Wasn’t it enough for you to feed on the best pasture and drink from the clearest water? Did you have to trample the rest of the pasture and foul the remaining water with your feet? So now my sheep eat what you have trampled with your feet and drink water fouled by your feet.’ Therefore here is what Yahweh Elohim says to them: ‘I will judge between the fat sheep and the thin sheep. Because you push them with your flanks and shoulders and butt all the weak ones with your horns, till you scatter them in every direction; therefore I will save my flock; they will no longer be prey; and I will judge between sheep and other sheep.”

THE TRUE SHEPHERD’S “I WILL” Statements

“‘I will raise up one shepherd to be in charge of them, and he will let them feed — my servant David. He will pasture them and be their shepherd. I, Yahweh, will be their God; and my servant David will be prince among them. I, Yahweh, have spoken. I will make a covenant of peace with them; I will rid the land of wild animals; and they will live securely in the desert and sleep in the forests. I will make them and the places around my hill a blessing, and I will cause the rain to fall when it should — there will be showers of blessing. The trees in the field will bear their fruit and the soil its produce, and they will be secure in their land. Then they will know that I am Yahweh, when I break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from the power of those who turned them into slaves. No longer will they be prey for the Goyim, nor will the wild animals devour them; but they will live securely, with no one to make them afraid. I will make the productivity of their crops famous, and they will no longer be consumed by hunger in the land or bear the shame of the Goyim any more. They will know that I, Yahweh their God, am with them, and that they, the house of Isra’el, are my people,’ says Yahweh Elohim. ‘You, my sheep, the sheep in my pasture, are human beings; and I am your God,’ says Yahweh Elohim.”

Isaiah 65: 2-4 says as a second witness of many to Deuteronomy 28:

 “I spread out my hands all day long to a rebellious people who live in a way that is not good, who follow their own inclinations; a people who provoke me to my face all the time, sacrificing in gardens and burning incense on bricks. They sit among the graves and spend the night in caverns; they eat pig meat and their pots hold soup made from disgusting things.”

I have several articles that this scripture can be applicable too. This is a holy judgment from YHWH on all those who call themselves believers in Jesus/Yeshua and then deny completely YHWH Gods instructions for life. They become lawless ones [not under Torah Law], eat forbidden pig meat, sit in graveyards on Easter morning facing the rising sun, eat soup made from seaborne garbage eaters, worship in modern versions of Tammuz caves, observe pagan holidays, ignore Gods Holy Days and Seasons and follow the traditions of men rather than following scripture. These only keep the last six of the Ten Commandments, and then only when convenient. The first four are ignored and denigrated by Church folk, especially the fourth [Sabbath], by following their own inclinations and extra-biblical traditions.

Sha’ul (Paul) finishes this article with instructions and encouragement from Second Corinthians chapters 6 and 7 [this is for us]:

(2Co 6:1) As God’s fellow-workers we also urge you not to receive his grace and then do nothing with it. For he says, “At the acceptable time I heard you; in the day of salvation I helped you.” We try not to put obstacles in anyone’s path, so that no one can find fault with the work we do. On the contrary, we try to commend ourselves in every way as workers for God by continually enduring troubles, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, overwork, lack of sleep and food. We commend ourselves by our purity, knowledge, patience and kindness; by the Ruach HaKodesh; by genuineness of love and truthfulness of speech; and by God’s power. We commend ourselves through our use of righteous weapons, whether for pressing our cause or defending it; through being honored and dishonored, praised and blamed, considered deceptive and sincere, unknown and famous. And we commend ourselves as God’s workers headed for death, yet look! We’re alive! As punished, yet not killed; as having reason to be sad, yet always filled with joy; as poor, yet making many people rich; as having nothing, yet having everything!

Dear friends in Corinth! We have spoken frankly to you; we have opened our hearts wide. Any constraint you feel has not been imposed by us, but by your own inner selves. So, just to be “fair” (I am using the language of children), open wide your hearts too. Do not yoke yourselves together in a team with unbelievers. For how can righteousness and lawlessness be partners? What fellowship does light have with darkness?What harmony can there be between the Messiah and B’liya`al? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement can there be between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temples of the living God — as God said, “I will house myself in them, . . . and I will walk among you. I will be their God, and they will be my people.” Therefore Yahweh says, ” ‘Go out from their midst; separate yourselves; don’t even touch what is unclean. Then I myself will receive you. In fact, I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters.’ says Yahweh Tzva’ot.”

Chapter 7

“Therefore, my dear friends, since we have these promises, let us purify ourselves from everything that can defile either body or spirit, and strive to be completely holy, out of reverence for God. Make room for us in your hearts — we haven’t wronged anyone, we haven’t corrupted anyone, we haven’t exploited anyone. I am not saying this to put blame on you, for I have already said that you have a place in our hearts, whether we live together or die together; that I am very confident in you; that I am very proud of you; that you have filled me with encouragement; and that in spite of all our troubles, I am overflowing with joy.”

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; 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 from ancient times until now. The Biases of men color and obscure the truth, even though it is self-evident!

Today in America, Babylon has emerged from hiding and has re-emerged as the 4th Reich [kingdom/empire], ruled by tyrants of the same worldview held by Nimrod. All of the pagan accoutrements of heathenism have been dusted off and presented to the unsaved world as the new normal. Most people fall under the hypnotic spell and embrace the slimy body of a new faith, Babylon reborn. The traditional American religious system and nation captures humanity’s collective soul with ease. This is the way it shall be until Yeshua returns and TAKES OVER. Praise His Holy Name!

Etc, Etc, Etc

Etc, Etc, Etc

Let us read the sacred text in terms of what they say, not by what we have to superimpose on these texts. We will come to this very distinct conclusion. -Baruch Spinoza, [1623-1677]

In the movie, “The Blues Brothers”, James Brown as the Rev. Cleopus, began a sermon with these words; “When I woke up this mornin’, I heard a disturbin’ sound; I said that; when I woke up this mornin’, I heard a disturbin’ sound!”
Well, when I woke up one Sunday morning, I heard a disturbing sound. It was the prompting of Yahweh God, who was sending me to visit a rather large Emergent, Evangelical denominational church in this community to listen to their Pastor leader give a “Sunday” sermon. After circling the wagons all morning to no avail, I gave up and with my wife Erlene, I reluctantly went. I took my wife along as a witness to all the “funny stuff” that might happen when a Torah keeping Messianic Moreh who believes in Yeshua [Jesus] shows up at a “modern” Sunday evangelical Church meeting. The musical part of the meeting went OK, but then the professional pastoral speaker went to the front and began to speak on the topic, “What is the big deal about Sunday?”

He began by reading the Scripture from Mark 2: 23-28 where Yeshua and his talmudim were passing thru a cornfield on the Biblical Shabbat. Then, his first expository sentence began with these words; “Jesus and his disciples were passing through a cornfield on Sunday morning on their way to church and the Pharisees were hiding in the cornfield to get him and…” I immediately pinched myself 4 or 5 times to determine whether or not I was having a nightmare, but to no avail because it became worse. He then began an explanation of the modern Sunday Blue Laws and applied it to all those legalistic Pharisees hiding in the cornfield and waiting to catch Yeshua in a violation of the “old testament Blue Laws” and concluded with a very convoluted and confusing conclusion of sorts that “Jesus” threw out all those old, bad codes, laws, regulations and traditions ofthe “Jews” and that we Christians can now meet on any day of the week that we choose, because “Jesus” said so in this passage.

I looked several times at the 200 or so people listening to all of this. Some were energetically taking notes, but most had assumed the zombie position and several men were nodding off, presumably to escape in some way from hearing any more.

I thought that all this “blue Law” stuff was his little funny for the day and I kept waiting for him to get into the real message, but he never did. When the whole thing finally mercifully died of slow strangulation, I got up and shakily made my way toward the nearest exit, wife in tow, when the Pastor, who expressed his desire to visit with me, waylaid me while pumping my hand in a friendly manner. Yahweh forbid!

What did I learn from this surreal experience? Much, in every way!
There is a gigantic wall of noise; a wall of separation between Scripture and preaching within the modern church system which causes chaos both within and from outside of the church. A wall of noise that is being cloven today; as it has been from the beginning; by the sharp two edged sword of Yeshua’s Gospel truth, expressed in its fullness by both the Torah and the Grace Scriptures embodied as one in Him as the required two witnesses from which all Biblical truth is derived and verified.
An old principal that, “If one begins with the wrong initial premise, then everything downstream of that premise will also be wrong,” applies to the teachings of the modern church system in the same way that it has always applied throughout history to religion in general and Gnosis in particular. The traditional, epistemological counsel of the many in the church, if wrong, drowns out the counsel of the One who is right; Yahweh and Yeshua as given through the Ruach Ha Kodesh [Holy Spirit] and fulfilled by Scripture.
The counsel of many false Shepherd’s (Ezekiel 33 and 34), drowns out and creates a cacophony that overwhelms the hearer and negates the truth, such that the hearer’s perception never receives the counsel of the true Shepard; not only in the church, but also as he/she moves about in the world at large. False shepherds under false authorities, spew out many words that confuse and create a giant wall of separation; which wall can only be penetrated by Spirit filled prayer directed toward the Father of truth, Yahweh God.
Ezekiel 33:30 to 34:11, indicate to us that a wall of separation has been built up by both the false shepherds of Israel and also by the church world. This wall, as described above, is a wall of noise that is not relevant to the truth. Without clear direction through teaching, the sheep are scattered and cannot hear the voice of the true shepherd.
During the Korean War, I sat on the left side of a 3.50-inch cannon as a gun trainer, without ear protection. The result was; that my right ear next to the noise was permanently damaged with tinnitus expressing itself as a lifelong loud ringing noise. Anyone speaking to me from that side had to shout in order to penetrate that blocking noise and be heard. I think that Yahweh is shouting today to make his voice heard over the religious white noise and ringing in our ears that is filtering out His voice.

The simple clarity of Scripture is the two edged sword, proceeding from Yeshua’s mouth; which two-edged sword, if we listen, cleaves the veil of confusion of voices. Yes, Virginia; the babble (Babel) of Nimrod and confusion of tongues, still permeates the religious world today. If the hearer does not move through the veil that is opened, the words of truth are useless and have no effect on the hearer’s life. In other words, as Ezekiel states, “they hear your words but do NOT ACT upon them.”

The cacophony is present today and causes a lack of action in the believer and a desire to listen to the false prophets and teachers in the religious system, which results in a passively accepted similarity between the world system and the church system.

So what is the solution to all of this? What can a true teacher of Scripture do when frustrated at every turn by the doctrines and the traditions of men?
PRAY in the Spirit that the One who bears the sharp two edged sword will; by His power, cleave asunder even the dead bones and dry marrow of false teachings; rend the false veil of noise and penetrate the heart and soul of the hearer; thereby creating the conviction to ACT upon what they have heard. The true teacher is limited by his/her voice, which is motivated by the understanding of our Scriptural Hebrew Roots and the sincere individual conviction to teach the purity and unity of written Scripture in its entirety. However, Yeshua’s power is unlimited in scope and ability by a teachers built in self generated biases and worldview. As Israel could do nothing by itself and brought nothing but faith in Yahweh’s Torah into the fray and into the world; so do we as teachers bring nothing into the fray but our limited understanding as “human beings.” This limiting beginning position grows with the premise that a good teacher is also a good student. It is a start.

Without Yeshua, we also are as sounding brass; but with Yeshua’s power imputed into us and received in humility; we have the power to move mountains as He said. We can also rend the veil of noise in His Name and then be free to present His unchanging, unvarnished truth; thereby fully understanding that the uplifting results of our teaching is up to Yahweh and not up to us.

Cloward-Piven

CLOWARD – PIVEN on the death of freedom in America
How is it that two Socialist College Professors from 1966 can destroy America?

It never ceases to amaze me how some people set out to destroy a nation and succeed through deceiving a gullible, sheeplike and actionless populace. This is happening in America and is nearing completion with the willing help of most of the formerly free citizens of the new Orwellian Socialist homeland ruled by a newly groomed tyrant dictator.

Using borrowed money from a privately owned central bank for a bandaid bailout of the economy should seem backwards to most people. However, it is a long planned strategy to promote radical change from a Constitutional Republic into a third world welfare state ruled by a ruthless dictator. Those dreamers naively believing that our Muslim President, Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama, is simply rewarding his far-left socialist base, and will then move to the political center, must wise up.

The assumption that Obama will need the nation to prosper to protect the 2016 election incorrectly assumes that he esteems free market capitalism. He does not. Rather than win through superior ideas and policies, the Democrat Socialist Party plan for success in the 2016 election is to win by destroying any political opposition, be it Republican or rogue Democrat stepping out of the world server net.

Obama adheres to the Communitarian Saul Alinksy “Rules for Radicals” method of politics, which teaches the dark art of destroying political adversaries. However, that text reveals only one front in the radical left’s war against America. The “Cloward Piven Strategy” is another method employed by the radical Left to create and then manage crises to achieve the destruction of freedom goal that is central to the New World Order they are creating. This strategy explains Socialist mule Rahm Emanuel’s ominous statement, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”

The Cloward/Piven Strategy is named after Columbia University sociologists, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Their goal is to overthrow Free Market capitalism and the US Constitution by overwhelming the government bureaucracy with entitlement demands. The created crisis provides the impetus to cause radical political change into a National Socialist Democratic Party ruled Police State. The Muslim Chief Liar, Obama follows the PLAN in detail.
Rather than placating the poor with government handouts, wrote Cloward and Piven, “Activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation.”

Who are these people?

Widely recognized by the left as one of America’s most thoughtful and provocative commentators on America’s social welfare system, Frances Fox Piven, political scientist, activist, and educator, was born in Calgary, Alberta in 1932. She came to the U.S. in 1933 and was naturalized in 1953, the same year she received her B.A. in City Planning from the University of Chicago. She also received her M.A. (1956) and Ph.D. (1962) from the University of Chicago. After a brief stint in New York as a city planner, she became a research associate at one of the country’s first anti poverty agencies, Mobilization for Youth — a comprehensive, community-based service organization on New York City’s Lower East Side. At its height the organization coordinated more than fifty taxpayer funded experimental programs designed to reduce poverty and crime. A 1965 paper entitled “Mobilizing the Poor: How It Can Be Done,” launched Piven and her co-author, Columbia University professor Richard Cloward, into an ongoing national conversation on the welfare state. Piven and Cloward’s collaborative work came to influence both careers, and the two eventually married. Their early work together provided a theoretical base for the National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), the first in a long line of grass roots organizations in which Piven acted as founder, advisor, and/or planner. Piven taught in the Columbia University School of Social Work from 1966 to 1972. From 1972 to 1982 she was a professor of political science at Boston University. In 1982 she joined the Graduate Center, City University of New York. She has co-authored with Richard Cloward Regulating the Poor: The Functions of Public Welfare (1971); The Politics of Turmoil: Essays on Poverty, Race and the Urban Crisis (1974); Poor People’s Movements (1977); The New Class War (1982); The Mean Season (1987); Why Americans Don’t Vote (1988); and The Breaking of the American Social Compact (1997), as well as dozens of articles, both with Cloward and independently, in scholarly and popular socialist publications.
Piven is known equally for her contributions to social theory and for her social activism. Over the course of her career, she has served on the boards of the ACLU and the Democratic Socialists of America, and has also held offices in several professional associations, including the American Political Science Association and the Society for the Study of Social Problems. In the 1960s, Piven worked with welfare-rights groups to expand benefits; in the eighties and nineties she campaigned relentlessly against welfare cutbacks. A veteran of the war on poverty and subsequent welfare-rights protests both in New York City and on the national stage, she has been instrumental in formulating the theoretical underpinnings of those movements. In Regulating the Poor, Piven and Cloward argued that any advances the poor have made throughout history were directly proportional to their ability to disrupt institutions that depend upon their cooperation. This academic commentary proved useful to George Wiley and the NWRO as well as many other community organizers and urban theorists. Since 1994, Piven has led academic and activist opposition to the “Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996,” (known as the Personal Responsibility Act), appearing in numerous public forums, from television’s Firing Line to the U.S. Senate, to discuss the history of welfare and the potential impact of welfare reform initiatives.
In corollary activity, Piven’s study of voter registration and participation patterns found fruition in the 1983 founding of the Human SERVE (Human Services Employees Registration and Voter Education) Campaign. The Campaign’s registration reform effort culminated in the 1994 passage of the National Voter Registration Act, or the “Motor-Voter” bill, designed to increase voter registration, especially among low-income groups.
Richard A. Cloward was a sociologist and socialist. He was the author with his wife Frances Fox Piven of the Cloward-Piven Strategy for revolutionary social change. The strategy was designed to so overburden the state with obligations to welfare recipients that revolutionary crisis and change would become inevitable. Later he applied similar principles to voter registration-working to increase the proportion of low income voters to change social structures.
He was undoubtedly one of the most influential figures on the U.S. and international left in the Twentieth century.
The ‘husband and wife’ team of Cloward and Piven were described as “Marxist critics” by Chicago Democratic Socialists of America.
Cloward died in his Manhattan home in August 2001 age 74.
Richard Cloward held a PhD in sociology.
He co-authored nine books, including “Delinquency and Opportunity” (1960), written with Lloyd Ohlin and focusing on problems related to gangs. This book received the Dennis Carroll Award and influenced the formation of Mobilization for Youth (MFY), which Cloward helped found in 1961. MFY became the programmatic model for the federal War on Poverty and pioneered community action programs and the anti poverty legal services.
Beginnings of the “welfare movement”
Written with associate sociologist Frances Piven of Columbia, Dr. Cloward’s paper for the Socialist Scholars opened with a call for a systematic strategy of “irregular and disruptive tactics” among the poor, urging them to overburden city and state governments with their “demands,” as a means of forcing these governments to turn to the federal government for more funds.
Prof. Cloward said, “We need to devote more attention to disrupting corporate power.” He described the poor as mere “supplicants” in the welfare state, and said they have most to gain “from a major upheaval in our society.” He said our welfare system is “lawless” and violates human and civil rights. He called for welfare recipients’ forcing city welfare departments to impose the labor union “checkoff system” for welfare clients, by withholding 50 cents to a dollar for each client as dues to a fund for unionization of welfare clients to impose their demands for special benefits.
Prof. Cloward explained that each welfare client in New York City is entitled under existing law to special benefits for clothing, blankets, etc. He said that in 1965 city special benefits welfare payments amounted to “about $40 per client” and he called for each welfare client to demand $100 to $1,000 in such benefits.
Dr. Cloward read his paper to the Socialist Scholars Conference in the East Ballroom of the Hotel Commodore on Saturday afternoon, September 10. On Monday night, September 12, CBS and NBC TV newscasts showed the demonstration of screaming welfare recipients that took place right on Cloward schedule. They shouted demands for more “special benefits,” though the present city general welfare budget (including hospital services, etc.) is almost a billion dollars annually, the Mayor says the city is “broke,” and New Yorkers were hit this year with a city income tax along with state and federal taxes to pay for it all.
Prof. Cloward was right about the success of his Wednesday night meetings. Evidently his strategy of “disruptive tactics” will require costly police reinforcements at city welfare departments throughout our nation.
The prospects delighted Prof. William Ryan, formerly of Harvard now of Yale, who described himself to the audience as “a radical without portfolio.” He said, “I have been enchanted with the Cloward strategy of blowing a fuse in the welfare agencies, housing developments, and among unmarried mothers. I wonder what would happen if there was a really systematic overload.”
When a member of the audience went to the floor microphone during the question period to ask whether Dr. Cloward’s strategy is a substitute for “Socialist organization of the proletariat, the industrial factory workers. “Dr. Frances Piven of Columbia replied from the dais: “I really only want to make one point-the disruption of the system. Welfare rolls will begin to go up; welfare payments will begin to go up. The impact will be very, very sharp. The mounting welfare budget will increase taxes, force cities to turn to the federal government. We have to help people to make claims; for this they will organize and act.”

Social change through welfare crisis
Clowardice NSDAP style

Cloward pioneered the deliberate attempt to expand welfare rolls to push state services to the point of collapse. His first vehicle for such tactics was the National Welfare Rights Organization, an ancestor of today’s ACORN and similar Communist and Communitarian fundraising organizations that Obama and the left love.
In 1966, Richard helped found the National Welfare Rights Organization, the protest movement of poor women. Its goal of winning federalization of Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) by building the local welfare rolls to create fiscal and political crisis very nearly succeeded. Instead, Congress granted fiscal relief to states and localities through a new federal relief program called Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI was one of the most important federal social policy innovations in the post-World War II period

In 1971, Cloward, along with his wife and collaborator, Dr. Frances Fox Piven, co-authored “Regulating the Poor: The Functions of Public Welfare”.
“This is a landmark critique of government’s use of public welfare to suppress social disorder among the poor and to reinforce the low wage work market”. Among their other landmark works, Cloward and Piven wrote, “The Politics of Turmoil” (1974), Poor People’s Movements” (1977), “The New Class War” (1982), “Why American’s Don’t Vote”, (1988) and “The Breaking of the American Social Compact” (1997).

Social change through expanded voter rolls
In 1982, Cloward and Piven founded the Human SERVE (Human Service Employees Registration and Voter Education Campaign, which promoted the idea that people should be registered to vote when they apply for welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, unemployment benefits and driver’s licenses.
A decade later, Human Serve’s program was incorporated in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. Popularly known as the “motor voter” bill, it became law in 1993.
“This legislation represents a historic advance in the struggle to win full enfranchisement for low-income people and people of color”.
The Voting Rights Act of 1965 had stopped government from preventing people from registering to vote. The 1993 act went further by embodying the principle that government has an affirmative obligation to register the eligible electorate.
Richard Cloward was named as a member of Democratic Socialists of America, in Democratic Left, January/February 1991 issue, page 16. This is a new redefined NAZI NSDAP!
In 1995 Marcy Darnovsky, Barbara Epstein and Richard Flacks edited the book “Cultural Politics and Social Movements”.
Bridging the worlds of activism and academia-social movement theory informed with the real experiences of activists-this volume of accessible essays brings together insights from European New Social Movement theorists, U.S. scholars of social movements, and activists involved in social movements from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Michael Harrington, whose book The Other America helped focus the nation’s attention on poverty in the early 1960s, has said that Piven is “one of the few academics who bridge the world of scholarship and the world of activism.” Of this mix, Piven herself has said: “One informs the other, energizes the other . . . There are dimensions of political life that can’t be seen if you stay on the sidelines or close to the top . . .” The larger significance of both activism and academics in Piven’s life can be gleaned from her remark that such work “also has to do with comradeship and friendship, . . . with being part of the social world in which you live and trying to make some imprint on it, . . . with the real satisfaction of throwing in with the ordinary people who have always been the force for humanitarian social change.”
Making an already weak economy even worse is the intent of the Cloward/Piven Strategy. It is imperative that we view the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan’s spending on items like food stamps, jobless benefits, and health care through this end goal. This strategy explains why the Democrat plan to “stimulate” the economy involves massive deficit spending projects. It includes billions for ACORN and its subgroups such as SHOP and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Expanding the S-Chip Program through deficit spending in a supposed effort to “save the children” only makes a faltering economy worse. “Saving the Children” is an amorphous doctrine of the left, but from what is never addressed, of course. Government controlled Schools promote State Doctrines and demonise parental teachings.

If Congress were to allow a robust economy, parents would be able to provide for their children themselves by earning and keeping more of their own money. Democrats, quick to not waste a crisis, would consider that a lost opportunity. Hitler, Stalin and ALL other Dictators followed the same road to a planned Entropy!

The Cato Institute reports that the plan will harm a faltering economy, intentionally causing increased job losses leading to increased demands for the aforementioned programs. Even the jobs to be created are set apart to render social justice, not economic revival. Robert Reich believes new infrastructure jobs should not go to white construction workers. Meanwhile, workers at Microsoft, IBM, Texas Instruments, and the retail market find themselves experiencing the life of the welfare poor.

If highly educated and trained workers continue to lose jobs and business falters as a whole, where will these jobless workers go? Could this be construed as revolutionary social reorganization that puts the underachiever above the achiever? Where is the future economic strength when jobless professionals collect welfare and unemployment while dreaming of a minimum wage job? For whites, there’s not even the hope of a good paying construction job.

Because these programs are financed with deficit spending, the effect of the Cloward/Piven Strategy becomes doubly destructive. Talk about a perfect storm! The Democrat stimulus plan is a mechanism whose goal is the destruction of the traditional American way of life. It is bitter irony that the American taxpayer will fund the destruction of his own ability to live according to the values of our Founding Documents. It is not alarmist to identify this situation as a coup d’etat.

As the flow of money from the top of the economy dries up, job losses and mortgage busts will mount exponentially. The Democrat stimulus plan provides for welfare expansion but not for a robust economy that creates high paying jobs. Is this what Obama means when he warns, “It’s going to get worse before it gets better?” If we are not bailing out corporate America so they can regain profitability, we must conclude Obama is working toward another end goal. Recognizing these attack methods reveals the only logical response — an unwavering wall of “No!”

The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”. Cloward and Piven were a married couple who were both professors at the Columbia University School of Social Work. The strategy was formulated in a May 1966 article in liberal magazine The Nation titled “The Weight of the Poor: a Strategy to End Poverty”.
The two stated that many Americans who were eligible for welfare were not receiving benefits, and that a welfare enrollment drive would strain local budgets, precipitating a crisis at the state and local levels that would be a wake-up call for the federal government, particularly the Democratic Party. There would also be side consequences of this strategy, according to Cloward and Piven. These would include: easing the plight of the poor in the short-term (through their participation in the welfare system); shoring up support for the national Democratic Party then-splintered by pluralistic interests (through its cultivation of poor and minority constituencies by implementing a national “solution” to poverty); and relieving local governments of the financially and politically onerous burdens of public welfare (through a national “solution” to poverty)
Cloward and Piven’s article is focused on forcing the Democratic Party, which in 1966 controlled the presidency and both houses of the United States Congress, to take federal action to help the poor. They stated that full enrollment of those eligible for welfare “would produce bureaucratic disruption in welfare agencies and fiscal disruption in local and state governments” that would “deepen existing divisions among elements in the big-city Democratic coalition: the remaining white middle class, the working-class ethnic groups and the growing minority poor. To avoid a further weakening of that historic coalition, a national Democratic administration would be constrained to advance a federal solution to poverty that would override local welfare failures, local class and racial conflicts and local revenue dilemmas.”
Michael Reisch and Janice Andrews wrote that Cloward and Piven “proposed to create a crisis in the current welfare system – by exploiting the gap between welfare law and practice – that would ultimately cause its collapse and replace it with a system of guaranteed annual income. They hoped to accomplish this end by informing the poor of their rights to welfare assistance, encouraging them to apply for benefits and, in effect, overloading an already overburdened bureaucracy.”
Focus on Democrats
The authors pinned their hopes on creating disruption within the Democratic Party. “Conservative Republicans are always ready to declaim the evils of public welfare, and they would probably be the first to raise a “hue and cry.” Deeper and politically more telling conflicts would take place within the Democratic coalition,” they wrote. “Whites – both working class ethnic groups and many in the middle class – would be aroused against the ghetto poor, while liberal groups, which until recently have been comforted by the notion that the poor are few would probably support the movement. Group conflict, spelling political crisis for the local party apparatus, would thus become acute as welfare rolls mounted and the strains on local budgets became more severe.”
Cloward and Piven themselves, in papers published in 1971 and 1977, argued that mass unrest in the United States, especially between 1964 and 1969, did lead to a massive expansion of welfare rolls, though not to the guaranteed-income program that they had hoped for. Political scientist Robert Albritton disagreed, writing in 1979 that the data did not support this thesis; he offered an alternative explanation for the rise in welfare caseloads.
In his 2006 book Winning the Race, political commentator John McWhorter attributed the rise in the welfare state after the 1960s to the Cloward–Piven strategy, but wrote about it negatively, stating that the strategy “created generations of black people for whom working for a living is an abstraction.”
According to historian Robert E. Weir in 2007, “Although the strategy helped to boost recipient numbers between 1966 and 1975, the revolution its proponents envisioned never transpired.”
Some commentators have blamed the Cloward–Piven strategy for the near-bankruptcy of New York City in 1975.
Conservative commentator Glenn Beck referred to the Cloward-Piven Strategy often on his Fox News television show, Glenn Beck, during its run from 2009 to 2011, reiterating his opinion that it had helped to inspire President Barack Obama’s economic policy. On February 18, 2010, for example, Beck said, “you’ve got a complete destruction of wealth coming… It’s the final phase of the Cloward-Piven strategy, which is collapse the system.”
Richard Kim, writing in 2010 in The Nation (in which the original essay appeared), called such assertions “a reactionary paranoid fantasy…” but says, “the left’s gut reaction upon hearing of it–to laugh it off as a Scooby Doo comic mystery–does nothing to blunt its appeal or limit its affect.” The Nation later stated that Beck blames the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” for “the financial crisis of 2008, healthcare reform, Obama’s election and massive voter fraud” and has resulted in the posting of much violent and threatening rhetoric by users on Beck’s website, including death threats against Frances Fox Piven. For her part, Piven vigorously continues to defend the original idea, calling its conservative interpretation “lunatic”.
Obama’s agenda: Overwhelm the system
OBAMACARE is only minimally Socialized medicine, but is rather a planned transfer of the former USA from a “Democracy” into a Socialist Police State!
Obama loves class conflict and enables it through his welfare state. Some gerbil brained welfare couch potato in the welfare state of England penned his philosophy of life many years ago and I include it here as the mental cogitations of the new generation of welfare goons.
‘I don’t want to join the bloody Army,
I don’t want to go unto the war;
I want no more to roam,
I’d rather stay at home,
Living on the earnings of a whore.”

The following Comment is by Wayne Allyn Root who was the 2008 Libertarian Party vice presidential nominee and serves on the Libertarian National Committee.
“Rahm Emanuel cynically said, “You never want a crisis to go to waste.” It is now becoming clear that the crisis he was referring to is Barack Obama’s presidency.
Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant at following the instructions of his handlers. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos — thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.
Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of 1983). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they’re alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist State with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival … and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.
— Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn’t care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?
— Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama’s biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama “spread the wealth around.”
— Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who’s asking for a 51st state? Who’s asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama’s plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat members of Congress and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.
— Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.
— Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions — including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.
— Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.
With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.
Add it up and you’ve got the perfect Marxist scheme — all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama.”

A mogern Bible premise

A MODERN BIBLE PREMISE

It has been my assigned task for many years now to write articles on Holy Scripture that seek to clarify in my mind and in my readers minds, just what scripture has to say to us all, based upon its Hebrew Roots context as written. Scripture explains itself as Holy men of YHWH God wrote as the Holy Spirit of the Almighty Elohim moved them.

The flow of the affairs of men which inexorably moves them, in their evil intentions, toward the twisted road of Armageddon has led me many times to reexamine, edit and update previous writings of mine to reflect this accelerated race toward the end of this age. This has been very gratifying and fulfilling to my spirit to be led by my savior, Yeshua, in this manner and toward his ends. Most modern believers do not agree with my conclusions and some even openly oppose me, but not as bad yet as my favorite Prophet, Jeremiah, was treated by Israel in their opposition as a response to his statements and warnings.

However, those who read my surmising and agree with my conclusions bless me abundantly and are the reason for my continued BarNaba efforts on the LORDs behalf.

The march of America towards the Tribulation and as willing participants in Armageddon particularly fascinates me. Being unable to fully understand the Hegelian and stupid march of Americans toward Entropy motivates my mind to try and figure it all out. Of course, I can never bring my questions to an end but the journey is fascinating and seemingly never ends. Ha!

So there you have it. You all, in reading my “stuff”, blesses me and makes it all worthwhile. You, who share my treading the ancient road to Emmaus, share with me as recipients of Yeshua’s high Priestly prayer in John 17, the impetus to BE LIKE HIM.

The Blessings of YAH cover you all,
Rav James Talbott, Yeshua HaTikvah Yisrael Ministries.

The American Church

THE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN CHURCH – IS IT DEAD, DYING, RESURRECTING ITSELF FROM THE DEAD OR DOES IT REALLY MATTER ANYMORE?
I recently have been reading a number of articles by various prognosticators about the demise of the Christian Church in America and of its being replaced by Hindu style new age and unrecognizable ‘man is god’ type religions. Beginning supposedly with the ‘god is dead’ hippy teachings of the 1960s, the slide into Entropy of traditional Christianity has been constant and accelerating. The Gospel of salvation accomplished by Yeshua on the tree (cross) is largely been replaced by spoon-fed pablum messages by Pastors spoken from pulpits to assure their job security in a non confrontive way, thereby assuring the pew sitting sheeple that all is well with the church world. The Holy Spirit of the Almighty walks away from such drivel and the predictable result is the terminal death of empty church buildings, which are left as bereft by biblically aware and mature saints of God.
Killing Me Softly?
When the secular American government stealthily took over the limits of the Christian Church through management by the 501c3 tax code law administration, Christianity was choked into submission and conformity under tax rules promulgated and enforced by pagan tax officials. Pastors, elders and Bishops knuckled under and surrendered their Constitutional rights without a whimper of protest. The few feeble and defensive church voices were soon stilled by a threatening, hostile and venal government. Thus, the Second Law of Thermodynamics came into effect and PC doctrines became the norm of Christian Seminaries and Protestant Bible Colleges. Thus, the church committed a slow and lingering suicide. This teaching will cause much heartburn and opposition from the clergy and ‘green gods’ church leadership who have much to lose, jobs, easy money and their controlling authority.
Israel said, “Let us look at how the nations around us worship their gods and we will worship our God in the same way.” Yahweh Elohim said, “You are not to do that, but they went ahead and did it anyway.”
Deuteronomy 12:28-32 says:
“Obey and pay attention to everything I am ordering you to do, so that things will go well with you and with your descendants after you forever, as you do what Adonai sees as good and right.
When Adonai your God has cut off ahead of you the nations you are entering in order to dispossess, and when you have dispossessed them and are living in their land; be careful, after they have been destroyed ahead of you, not to be trapped into following them; so that you inquire after their gods and ask, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I want to do the same.’ You must not do this to Adonai your God! For they have done to their gods all the abominations that Adonai hates! They even burn up their sons and daughters in the fire for their gods!
Everything I am commanding you, you are to take care to do. Do not add to it or subtract from it.”

Numbers 25: 1-5 says:

“Isra’el stayed at Sheetim, and there the people began whoring with the women of Mo’av. These women invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, where the people ate and bowed down to their gods. With Isra’el thus joined to Ba‘al-P‘or, the anger of Adonai blazed up against Isra’el.
Adonai said to Moshe, “Take all the chiefs of the people, and hang them facing the sun before Adonai, so that the raging fury of Adonai will turn away from Isra’el.” Moshe said to the judges of Isra’el, “Each of you is to put to death those in his tribe who have joined themselves to Ba‘al-P‘or.”

Exodus 14:

What part of this do you not understand?

YHWH’s Judgment on Evil “KINGS”
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 humanity! YAHWEH Elohim, our God, the Creator of Darkness and Light, has allowed humankind 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 green religions of cannibalism and death, and the many bloody kings, dictators, popes and conquerors described in history; the story of humanity 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 of days 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 from ancient times until now. The Biases of men color and obscure the truth, even though it is self-evident!
Today in America, Babylon has emerged from hiding and has re-emerged as the Fourth Reich [kingdom/empire], ruled by tyrants of the same worldview held by Nimrod. All the pagan accoutrements of heathenism have been dusted off and presented to the unsaved world as the new normal. Most people fall under the hypnotic spell and embrace the slimy body of a new faith, Babylon reborn. The Obama nation captures humanity’s collective soul with ease. This is the way it shall be.
It has been said that history repeats itself and that there is nothing new under the sun [Solomon].
(Ecclesiastes 10:16) “Woe to you, land [of America], when your king is a child [a community organizer only], and your leaders start their parties in the morning!”
There are 4 rules in this study.
Rule 1. Nations demand a PC savior King of peace, hope, change and prosperity, as does America today. When Israel demanded a King so that they would look like all the other nations, they got one just like all the other nations, and the slippery slope to Entropy began. YHWH said this in First Samuel, chapter 8:
All the leaders of Isra’el gathered themselves together and approached Sh’mu’el in Ramah and said to him, “Look, you have grown old, and your sons are not following your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.
Sh’mu’el was not pleased to hear them say, “Give us a king to judge us”; so he prayed to YAHWEH. YAHWEH said to Sh’mu’el, “Listen to the people, to everything they say to you; for it is not you they are rejecting; they are rejecting me; they don’t want me to be king over them. They are doing to you exactly what they have been doing to me, from the day I brought them out of Egypt until today, by abandoning me and serving other gods. So do what they say, but give them a sober warning, telling them what kinds of rulings their king will make.” Sh’mu’el reported everything YAHWEH had said to the people asking him for a king He said, “Here is the kind of rulings your king will make: he will draft your sons and assign them to take care of his chariots, be his horsemen and be bodyguards running ahead of his chariots. He will appoint them to serve him as officers in charge of a thousand or of fifty, plowing his fields, gathering his harvest, and making his weapons and the equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters and have them be perfume-makers, cooks and bakers. He will expropriate your fields, vineyards and olive groves, the very best of them! – And hand them over to his servants. He will take the ten-percent tax of your crops and vineyards and give it to his officers and servants. He will take your male and female servants, your best young men and your donkeys, and make them work for him. He will take the ten-percent tax of your flocks, and you will become his servants. When that happens, you will cry out because of your king, whom you yourselves chose. But when that happens, YAHWEH will not answer you!”
However, the people refused to listen to what Sh’mu’el told them, and they said, “No! We want a king over us, so that we can be like all the nations, with our king to judge us, lead us and fight our battles.” Sh’mu’el heard everything the people said and repeated them for YAHWEH to hear. YAHWEH said to Sh’mu’el, “Do what they ask, and set up a king for them.” So Sh’mu’el told the men of Isra’el, “Each of you, return to his city.”
Rule 2. You get Guaranteed Results from an earthly savior King. Israel got Saul and America got Obama.
Micah chapter 2 says:
“Woe to those who think up evil and plan wickedness as they lie in bed. When morning comes, they do it, since they have it in their power. They covet fields and seize them; they take over houses as well, doing violence to both owner and house, to people and their inherited land. Therefore this is what YAHWEH says: “Against this family I am planning an evil from which you will not withdraw your necks; nor will you walk with your heads held high, for it will be an evil time.” On that day they will take up a dirge for you; sadly lamenting, they will wail, “We are completely ruined! Our people’s land has changed hands. Our fields are taken away from us; instead of restoring them, he parcels them out.” Therefore, you will have no one in the assembly of YAHWEH to stretch out a measuring line and restore the land assigned by lot. “Don’t preach!” – thus they preach! “They shouldn’t preach about these things; Shame will not overtake us”. Is this what the house of Ya’akov says? YAHWEH has not grown impatient, and these things are not his doings. “Rather, my words do only good to anyone living uprightly. But lately my people behave like an enemy, stripping both cloaks and tunics from travellers who thought they were secure, so that they become like war refugees. You throw my people’s women out of the homes they love. You deprive their children of my glory forever. Get up and go! You can’t stay here! Because [the land] is now unclean, it will destroy you with a grievous destruction.” If a man who walks in wind and falsehood tells this lie: “I will preach to you of [how good it is to drink] wine and strong liquor”, this people will accept him as their preacher!
“I will assemble all of you, Ya’akov; I will gather the remnant of Isra’el, I will put them together like sheep in a pen, like a herd in its pasture – it will hum with the sounds of people.” The one breaking through went up before them; they broke through, passed the gate and went out. Their king passed on before them; YAHWEH was leading them.”
Micah, chapter 3 says:
“I said, ‘Please listen, leaders of Ya’akov, rulers of the house of Isra’el: Shouldn’t you know what justice is? Yet you hate what is good and love what is bad. You strip off their skin from them and their flesh from their bones, you eat the flesh of my people, skin them alive, break their bones; yes, they chop them in pieces, like flesh in a caldron, like meat in a pot.'” Then they will call to YAHWEH, but he will not answer them; when that time comes, he will hide his face from them, because their deeds were so wicked. Here is what YAHWEH says in regard to the prophets who cause my people to go astray, who cry, “Peace” as soon as they are given food to eat but prepare war against anyone who fails to put something in their mouths: “Therefore you will have night, not vision, darkness and not divination; the sun will go down on the prophets, over them the day will be black.” The seers will be put to shame, the diviners will be disgraced. They will have to cover their mouths, because there will be no answer from God. On the other hand, I am full of power by the Spirit of YAHWEH, full of justice and full of might, to declare to Ya’akov his crime, to Isra’el his sin. Hear this, please, leaders of the house of Ya’akov, rulers of the house of Isra’el, you who abhor what is just and pervert anything that is right, who build up Tziyon with blood and Yerushalayim with wickedness. Her leaders sell verdicts for bribes, her cohanim teach for a price, her prophets divine for money, yet they claim to rely on YAHWEH! “Isn’t YAHWEH here with us?” they say. “No evil can come upon us.” Therefore, because of you, Tziyon will be plowed under like a field; Yerushalayim will become heaps of ruins, and the mountain of the house like a forested height.”
Rule 3. America joins the PC blind mice of Socialist Marxism.
How many times has this recurrent deception played out in the history of planet earth? Too many! And now, America, a supposed “City on a hill” has fallen prey to the same AlTaqiyya lie from the children of Edom and their implanted mole, Hussein Obama, who has slipped in as the new “King of America” without a whimper from those empowered to protect that which our founders bled and died to defend and implant upon this once righteous land, and the once righteous church of Jesus Christ [Yeshua HaMoshiach] has also been silent and without even a whisper from the PC 501c3 controlled pulpits.
I agree with Charles Grandison Finney, the great Evangelist:
[1792-1875]
“Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits.
If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree.
If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it.
If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it.
If the Church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it.
If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it.
If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.
If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.
Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”
Isaiah 65: 2-4 says as a second witness of many to the admonition of Deuteronomy 28: 15 and to the end of the chapter, concerning the curses placed upon a rebellious people who do not play by the rules set down by Yahweh.
“ I spread out my hands all day long to a rebellious people who live in a way that is not good, who follow their own inclinations; a people who provoke me to my face all the time, sacrificing in gardens and burning incense on bricks. They sit among the graves [on Easter morning facing the sungod] and spend the night in [Tammuz] caverns; they eat [prohibited] pig meat and their pots hold soup made from disgusting things [scum sucking bottom dwellers].”
If one desires to play a game of chess but does not learn the rules of the game; but just makes up new rules of their own choosing, they are playing a game but it is not chess. So it is with religion. Yahweh wrote out the rules in stone on Mount Horev, but people chose not to follow His written Torah rules. Instead, they made up their own rules, which are called by some the doctrines of men, while some are called the Christian church doctrines and others are named as the rules and the traditions of the Church and political elders.
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy and is always followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations and their churches have progressed through this sequence:
“From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence and from dependence back again to bondage.”
