Come to Me, says Mashiach, and drink of Living Water

His Name

 

             Yahweh      יהוה =       Yod י   Hey ה  Waw  ו   Hey ה     

Yahweh’s Name became known to Adam 6000 years ago and the original language was not written in the modern Hebrew script that we know today.  Today’s Hebrew is actually a Babelian script that replaced the original Paleo Hebrew writing that the original Torah Scrolls were written in by Mosheh and the Yisra’elites prior to their exile to Babel.  There was no ‘j’ and there was no ‘v’.  The ‘W’ was just that…a double u and has the sound of a double o as in oo i.e. ‘school’ or ‘choose’.  The Yod has an ee sound.  Yahweh’s Name is pronounced;  ee-ah-oo-eh   Yah is His personal short form as we find in the Tehellim (Psalms) and in a few other places.  Our Messiah came in His Father’s Name Yah-usha meaning; Yah Saves.  As stated Yahusha is The Messiah and is the Spirit of Yahweh.  He is not a different entity that replaces Yahweh but is a part of Yahweh, He is the Word made flesh and ‘the Word’ throughout  the Scriptures is Torah. The Word of Yahweh.

Jer 16:19  O YHWH, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.

Did you know?  The above verse is among a passage of Scripture that is prophetic to ‘The latter days’, those ‘latter days’ of which we now find ourselves.  We are in fact seeing this prophetic verse being fulfilled ! !   It’s true, it’s true!!

There are a growing number of us that are seeing that the doctrines of the church are of no benefit to us, as the ‘church’ is so full of apostasy, that it is hard to distinguish them from the ‘pagans’ referred to in Scripture.  Which is quite interesting as this thought was also recorded in the first centuries of “Christianity”, by those whom the ‘church’ considers to be “the church fathers”.

Much of what Christians call ‘the Old Testament’ is prophetic to the future which is becoming our present.  Does your ‘bible’ show you what is ‘prophetic’?  If not, can you understand how different your perception would be if you knew that what you are reading still has either a 2nd or 3rd fulfillment, yet to come, or that it has yet to be fulfilled at all, but will?  If there are ‘prophecies’ yet to be filled, there is still value in the study of ‘Old Testament’ writings, is there not?

Did you know?  When the Scriptures were originally written, there were no chapters and verses marked?  It was nearly one long sentence, unfamiliar to the way we see written language, in our western mindset.  There was no punctuation; there were no breaks between paragraphs or chapters.  That is why when we read in what Christians call the New Testament, they would say;   “is it not written, in the Book of…” and leave it at that!  Our Messiah never gave a chapter and verse, nor did any of the followers of The Messiah, who wrote the “Messianic Writings”.  Chapter and verse did not come along until much later.

Did you know?  When Sha’ul (Paul) wrote to Timothy; “all Scripture is breathed by Yahweh and is profitable for…”, the only Scripture that existed then was “The Tanach”  (OT), As the Books of the “Messianic Writings” were still being written and had not even been circulated yet.  They were in fact, nothing but letters written from one individual to another individual or group (congregations), NOT ‘churches’.  The ‘New Testament’ was not ‘scripture’ until the council of Nicaea in the year 325.  The word ‘christian’ did not exist before the 2nd or 3rd century.

It was then, in 325 CE, that the Emperor Constantine, who still worshipped his Sun-Deity(ies), that changed the Torah of the Sabbath, ‘Torah’ being the corrected translation of the word used in your NT ‘law’ or Law’, and made it a Roman law, that forbade the true followers of the Messiah, to worship on the 7th day, as Scripture  COMMANDS.   The true followers of the Messiah were known as “The Nazarenes”, today, we call ourselves “Nazarene Yisra’el”.  Those original “Nazarenes” were not allowed at the Council of Nicaea”, they were excluded and shortly thereafter the Roman Catholic Church began to hunt them down in an effort to exterminate them, because they were ‘considered’ to be Jews and Heretics.  Following and obeying the Messiah was being a Heretic??

Constantine passed laws making it a crime to worship on the 7th day (The Sabbath Day), and he declared that the new day of worship was to be on “The Venerable Day of the Sun”, the day he had always worshipped his Sun-Deities.  Mixed worship was, and still is, a very serious transgression of the ‘Law’ (Torah).  What is ‘sin’?  Sin is the transgression of The Law (Torah).  Remember, the word ‘law’ is a mistranslation of the Hebrew word ‘Torah’.

There are a number of words used throughout Scripture that are synominous with the word Torah, these include law, the Word, commands and commandments.

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim.

Joh 1:2 He was in the beginning with Elohim.

Joh 1:3 All came to be through Him, and without Him not even one came to be that came to be.

The Word, in the beginning, is the first 5 Books of Scripture, The Torah.  The first words of Genesis (Bereshith), Bereshith means “Beginnings”, or “In the beginning…”

The ‘Rock’ is the foundation of our faith, that ‘rock’ is also the ‘law’ or ‘Torah’.

Luk 6:46 “But why do you call Me ‘Master, Master,’ and do not do what I say? 

Luk 6:47 “Everyone who is coming to Me, and is hearing My words and is doing them, I shall show you whom he is like:

Luk 6:48 “He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock. And when a flood came, the stream burst against that house, but was unable to shake it, for it was founded on the rock.

Luk 6:49 “But the one hearing and not doing, is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream burst, and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”

Likewise the ‘Foundation of our faith’ is The Torah.

John (Yohanan) speaking of Yahusha HaMashiach, calls Him; ‘The Word’.  The ‘Word’, ‘Rock’ and ‘Foundation’ are all the same, and they are all The Torah.  Yahusha HaMashiach (the Messiah) IS The Torah come to life, He is the Living Word.  I cannot emphasize enough this statement:  YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE ‘NEW TESTAMENT’ WITHOUT A THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF THE OLD TESTAMENT ! ! !

You must have the foundation laid down before you can begin to build your house.  We have inherited only lies from our forefathers!!  Not just the forefathers of ‘christianity’ but beginning long before that.  The “Jewish rabbi” and ‘Talmud’ had long before hidden the Name of our Father. 

Jer 23:27  Which think to cause My people to forget My Name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Ba'al.

“Ba’al”

The word; ‘Ba’al’ is the Hebrew word for ‘Lord’  :

H1171

בּעל גּד

ba‛al gâd

bah'-al gawd

From H1168 and H1409; Baal of Fortune; Baal Gad, a place in Syria: - Baal-gad.

 

“Gad”  pronounced   ‘gawd’; Ba’al Gawd is the same as saying ‘the lord god’.  Even done in ignorance it is a grievous transgression of His Law.  But now you know better, Right?

 

H1168

בּעל

ba‛al

bah'-al

The same as H1167; Baal, a Phoenician deity: - Baal, [plural] Baalim.

 

H1408

גּד

gad

gad

A variation of H1409; Fortune, a Babylonian deity: - that troop.

 

Gad is pronounced “Gawd”  or ‘god’

 

”Lord”

Here looking up the word “lord” in the Strong’s Concordance

H1167

בּעל

ba‛al

bah'-al

From H1166; a master; hence a husband, or (figuratively) owner (often used with another noun in modifications of this latter sense: -  + archer, + babbler, + bird, captain, chief man, + confederate, + have to do, + dreamer, those to whom it is due, + furious, those that are given to it, great, + hairy, he that hath it, have, + horseman, husband, lord, man, + married, master, person, + sworn, they of.

 

The Jewish Rabbis had decided that the True Name of our Heavenly Father was too ‘holy’ to speak.  But how can that be true if in all of Scripture it NEVER says that??  Scripture declares His Name to be Yahweh 6,823 times,

Isa 52:6 “Therefore My people shall know My Name, in that day, for I am the One who is speaking. See, it is I.”

Eze 39:7 “And I shall make My set-apart Name known in the midst of My people Yisra’ĕl, and not let My set-apart Name be profaned any more. And the gentiles shall know that I am יהוה, the Set-apart One in Yisra’ĕl.

Both of these verses also come from passages that are ‘prophetic’ to our future, which is not future anymore but what is currently being fulfilled, as so many of us are searching for the True Roots of our Faith.  Those True Roots are HEBREW, YISRA’EL!!  Yahweh calls His people “Yisra’el”, not Jews or ‘Judaism’ nor does He call His people ‘Christian’.  That is replacement theology and it is also false.  His people are, have been and always will be “Yisra’el”. 

When we are ‘grafted-in’ we are Yisra’el, not Jews.  Yes, Yahusha was of the tribe of Yahudah (Judah, from which the word ‘Jew’ comes), but He was NOT of the ‘Jewish’ religion.  Another mistranslation is the word ‘Jew’ it was originally written as ‘Yahudim’.  The tribe of Yahudah, as a number greater than one, Yahudim, the suffix ‘im’ in Hebrew makes words Plural.

Yahweh told us not to speak the names of other ‘gods’, false-gods, man-made idols.  Why is it that none of the names of these pagan gods have ever been changed.  Baal is Baal today just as it was in the original.  Satan is Satan, Saturn is Saturn, Poseidon is Poseidon.  I could go on and on but I am not supposed to be speaking their names.  But we have hidden and do not speak the Name of the only True “Elohim” (mistranslated as ‘god’).  Elohim means ‘Mighty One’.  There is only one true Elohim, and that is Yahweh/Yahusha.  Yahweh of the 1st Covenant and Yahusha of the Re-Newed Covenant.

If anyone picks up a Hebrew Book of “Tanach” or Torah.  And compare where in the Christian ‘bible’ the titles ‘god’ and ‘lord’ are used, they will find   יהוה   (which is read from right to left Yod Hey Waw Hey, or YHWH = Yahweh and for the word ‘god’ they will find the word ‘Elohim’ which in Hebrew is,; Aleph Lamed Hey Yod  Mem.  Elohim is the plural form of El, as Yahusha and Yahweh are One (Echad), they are Elo-him (plural).

Now I speak more ‘boldly’ than some and I find a very fine line between ‘mistranslation’ and “lies”. 

We have inherited ONLY lies from our fore-fathers.

To take The True Name of our Heavenly Father, Yahweh, and make the people forget for the name of Baal (lord), breaks another ‘Torah’ command which says; “Do not add to nor take away from the Words of this Torah”, and this command is repeated several times, both in the Old Testament and in the very last words of the last chapter of the last Book in the Scriptures, Yochanan (John) repeats this sentiment…:

Rev 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And he who hears, let him say, “Come!” And he who thirsts, come! And he who desires it, take the water of life without paying!

Rev 22:18 For I witness to everyone hearing the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, Elohim shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book,

The plagues are those Yahweh promised in the Blessings and the Curses given in Deut. The 5th Book of the TORAH.

Rev 22:19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Elohim shall take away his part from the Book of Life, and out of the set-apart city, which are written in this Book.

  To ‘change’ something, one must first take away and then add something different.  So to replace the True Name of Yahweh for other words that are BOTH ‘pagan’ deities’ names and ‘pagan’ ‘titles’, is gross transgression of the command; “do not add to nor take away from the words of this Torah”, it is ‘grossly’ rebellious to do this.

We have inherited only lies!!!

Now that we see that in the original Scriptures, Yahweh breathed His True Name into the Book of instructions He gave us, we can now take a look at the first 3 commandments He gave on Mt Sinai, to His people Yisra’el, as a Torah FOREVER, Throughout OUR  (Yisra’el’s) generations.

1.)  “Thou shalt have no ‘other’ ‘elohim’ before My face”

If we are calling our One and Only True Elohim, Yahweh by any other name or title, we are in transgression of this 1st Commandment.  PLAIN and SIMPLE!!  If we have ‘christianized’ pagan worship and melded pagan religions with ‘some’ truth, this is the same thing.  Christianity is NOT ‘monotheistic’ as most believe..but that is for another day…

REPENT ! ! !

2.)  “You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth, you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.”

What constitutes a ‘carved image’?? 

The ‘Star of David’??  

A statue of Mary??  Or St. Peter, Paul or j.c.??

The ‘cross’?? 

The word 'cross' is not even in the Besorah of Yahusha!  the word was 'stake' or 'tree', the 'church' purposely mistranslated this word to get you to accept a lie, the cross was a symbol of the pagan sun-god; Tammuz, one of the many sun-deities of christianity.

a carved image, = any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth,

Yahweh is ONE, we bow down to no one else, we worship no one else.  PERIOD!!

REPENT ! ! !

3.)  “You do not bring the Name of יהוה your Elohim to naught, for יהוה does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught.”

Need I say anything more?  To change HIS Name is to bring His Name to naught

Pro 30:4  Who has gone up to the heavens and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who established all the ends of the earth?....................................................................................................................................

What is His Name, And what is His Son’s Name, If you know it?

REPENT ! ! !  REPENT ! ! !   REPENT ! ! !

In the Restored Name King James version of Scripture there are 155 instances where Yahweh says; “I am YHWH”, do ya think He meant it??

Just a few examples:

Exo 6:2  And Elohim spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am YHWH:

Isa 45:6  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am YHWH, and there is none else.

Isa 48:17  Thus saith YHWH, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am YHWH thy Elohim which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.

Jer 24:7  And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am YHWH: and they shall be my people, and I will be their Elohim: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.

Eze 29:21  In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am YHWH.

Eze 33:29  Then shall they know that I am YHWH, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.

Coming very soon to this country!!  Just look around at all the “Abominations” which WE have done.

Eze 36:23  And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am YHWH, saith the Master YHWH, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

Eze 38:23  Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am YHWH.

Eze 39:7  “And I shall make My set-apart Name known in the midst of My people Yisra’ĕl, and not let My set-apart Name be profaned any more. And the gentiles shall know that I am יהוה, the Set-apart One in Yisra’ĕl.

Most, if not all of these verses are coming from ‘prophetic’ passages.

Eze 39:22  So the house of Israel shall know that I am YHWH their Elohim from that day and forward.

Mal 3:6  For I am YHWH, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.          

Notice what Yahweh just said here!!  “I change NOT”.

His commands and His desires for us to follow in His Way, has never changed.  Yah NEVER changes…Not yesterday today or tomorrow!!

Mat 5:17  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

Mat 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Yahusha ‘fulfilled’ the hundreds of ‘prophesies’ about him.  He is the embodiment of The Torah, He fulfills (not ends) Torah.  If this is not true, then He lied in the verse just given (5:18).  We are still living on the same earth and under the same heaven this day, as Yahusha HaMashiach walked 2000 nearly years ago!

This was and is being written to those still in captivity, ‘churchianity’ in the hopes of planting seed.

If you are still in ‘the church’ take heed to the Call in Revelation and also from the Book of Dani’el and the Prophesies given in the OLD Testament to:  “Come Out of Her My People”.  What is being referred to here is the religious organizations that keep you in captivity.  “Her” is “religious Babel (Babylon)”.  She is the Roman Catholic church, and ‘her’ daughters are the protestant churches.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.

Rev 14:8 And another messenger followed, saying, “Babel is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her whoring.”

Who, other than the Catholic Church can this be said of??  The Catholic Dictionary calls Rome the “New Babylon”.

Rev 17:4 And the woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup filled with abominations and the filthiness of her whoring.

Rev 17:5 and upon her forehead a name written, a secret: BABEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE WHORES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Again, this is ‘The Roman Catholic church’

“Come out of her, My People”

Rev 14:12 Here is the endurance of the set-apart ones, here are those guarding the commands of Elohim and the belief of יהושע.  (this is The Hebrew text of ‘Yahusha’).  Which, again, is read from right to left…Yod Hey Waw Shin Ayin.

What do you suppose “guarding the Commands of Elohim” means?

Natsarene Yisra’elites believe in walking in Torah, not forsaking the Commands of Elohim, and in Yahusha HaMashiach.

Yahusha taught His followers that they should keep the Commandments,  and the secret is; all the Torah is in the Ten Commandments.  The ‘Ten Words’ are basically a synopsis or summary of the Torah.  If we have a question about the keeping of any one of the Ten Words, we can go to the Torah for the answer. 

We mistakenly think that the Torah is a heavy burden.  NOT SO AT ALL!!  For Yahusha taught that His burden was light.  Keeping the Law is not burdensome, breaking the law IS.  Strict adherence to 'Talmud' (the 'laws of men'), made their burden heavy, Yahusha brought them out from under "their" law, NOT the Torah!

Our Freedom lies in Obedience to the Law, if we follow the Torah we are free of the burden of guilt, we are free from having to look over our shoulder to see if we are about to be caught, we will never have to lie our way out of anything.  We are FREE because we have done nothing wrong.  The Torah IS a Torah of Freedom.  Free from SIN, !!

1Ki 18:21  And Ěliyahu came to all the people, and said, “How long would you keep hopping between two opinions? If יהוה is Elohim, follow Him; and if Baʽal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.

Our Messiah, Yahusha, declared the Father’s Name to His taught ones, because Yahweh’s Name had been removed from the mouths of the Yisra’elites.

Joh 17:1  יהושע said these words, and lifted up His eyes to the heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come. Esteem Your Son, so that Your Son also might esteem You,

Joh 17:2  as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give everlasting life to all whom You have given Him.

Joh 17:3  “And this is everlasting life, that they should know You, the only true Elohim, and יהושע Messiah whom You have sent.

Joh 17:4  “I have esteemed You on the earth, having accomplished the work You have given Me that I should do.

Joh 17:5  “And now, esteem Me with Yourself, Father, with the esteem which I had with You before the world was.

Joh 17:6  “I have revealed Your Name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world. They were Yours, and You gave them to Me, and they have guarded Your Word.

Joh 17:7  “Now they have come to know that all You gave to Me, is from You.

Joh 17:8  “Because the Words which You gave to Me, I have given to them. And they have received them, and have truly known that I came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me.

Joh 17:9  “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.

Joh 17:10  “And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I have been esteemed in them.

Joh 17:11  “And I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Set-apart Father, guard them in Your Name which You have given Me, so that they might be one, as We are.

Joh 17:12  “When I was with them in the world, I was guarding them in Your Name which You have given Me, and I watched over them, and not one of them perished except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be filled.

Joh 17:13  “And now I come to You. And I speak these words in the world, so that they have My joy completed in them.

Joh 17:14  “I have given them Your Word, and the world hated them because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world.

Joh 17:15  “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You keep them from the wicked one.

Joh 17:16  “They are not of the world, as I am not of the world.

Joh 17:17  “Set them apart in Your truth – Your Word is truth.

Joh 17:18  “As You sent Me into the world, I also sent them into the world.

Joh 17:19  “And for them I set Myself apart, so that they too might be set apart in truth.

Joh 17:20  “And I do not pray for these alone, but also for those believing in Me through their word,

Joh 17:21  so that they all might be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, so that they too might be one in Us, so that the world might believe that You have sent Me.

Joh 17:22  “And the esteem which You gave Me I have given them, so that they might be one as We are one,

Joh 17:23  “I in them, and You in Me, so that they might be perfected into one, so that the world knows that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

Joh 17:24  “Father, I desire that those whom You have given Me, might be with Me where I am, so that they see My esteem which You have given Me, because You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

Joh 17:25  “O righteous Father, indeed the world did not know You, but I knew You, and these knew that You sent Me.

Joh 17:26  “And I have made Your Name known to them, and shall make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me might be in them, and I in them.”

There is simply no Scriptural justification for the man-made idea that Yahweh’s Name is to ‘holy’ to speak.  We know that that is a practice of old pagan religions and Yahweh clearly told us over and over again not to worship Him as the ‘nations’ (pagans) worshipped their false gods.  It is my belief that;

If you use the wrong Name, you worship in vain.  As stated before in the Scripture references; Yahweh said, “My people shall know My Name”.

I am going to add here the actual text from the Hebrew Sciptures of the following verse; Yirm. (Jer) 33:11; First in English, then in the Hebrew and I will highlite Yahwe's Name as it reads in The Hebrew Scriptures.

Jer 33:11  the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who are saying, “Praise יהוה of hosts, for יהוה is good, for His kindness is forever,” of those who are bringing the offering of praise into the House of יהוה. For I shall turn back the captivity of the land, as at the first,’ declares יהוה.  

Jer 33:11  קול  שׂשׂון  וקול  שׂמחה  קול  חתן  וקול  כלה  קול  אמרים  הודו  את  יהוה  צבאות  כי  טוב  יהוה  כי  לעולם חסדו  מבאים  תודה  בית  יהוה  כי  אשׁיב  את  שׁבות  הארץ  כבראשׁנה  אמר  יהוה׃

There is the proof.  It is written in His Word and it is written this way in every instance where you are reading the word LORD. ( I capitalize this only for this illustration)  For the use of that word is PAGAN, it means Ba'al a very bad 'god' that Yahweh hates.
