Promise of The Covenant

In This Article you will see the promise given to us, and the difference between the true and false prophet of Yahweh.

THE PROMISE GIVEN TO ABRAHAM---THE HOUSE OF YAHWEH---YAHSHUA MESSIAH

 

In this article we are going to explore the promise given to our father, Abraham, which was our Messiah, Yahshua. We will see that this promise is the House of Yahweh, the body of Yahshua Messiah, and it is our gift from Yahweh, through the covenant promise. Yahweh made an oath from His House and there is no greater House than His House, just as there is no one greater than Yahweh.

 

In Colossians 3:12-17 we are shown how to be the elect of Yahweh.  We must put on compassion, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, and longsuffering. We must be patient and forgiving. We must forgive and we can see that Love is the bond of perfection.

 

Reading from Colossians we find that we must not lie to one another. vs. 9

 

We see that we were called into one body, and must let the peace of Yahweh rule in our hearts, for we were called into one body, in which we should be thankful. vs.15

 

We can also teach through songs, which contrary to some imposters is a righteous thing to do. vs. 16

 

We must do all things to Yahweh, with all our hearts. vs. 23

 

And lastly we serve Yahshua Messiah, not men! vs. 24

 

If you really look closely at the above mentioned scriptures and take to heart what is being said, we must become a servant of Yahshua, who is the only righteous shepherd. As you read the article you will find that there are some who are given responsibility to care for the called out ones, but not to rule over them as Kings or Masters.

 

When Yahweh revealed His Covenant to Abraham, he did not have any hidden agenda. He gave Abraham a promise and to make sure that it was valid and so no mortal man could brag, He vowed by no one other than Himself. When one comes to the understanding that Yahweh’s work is His and it is called by His Name, then it makes sense to understand that this work would carry His name. The House of Yahweh is not for just anyone to use. For Yahweh has to reveal it to you and then give you the authority to use His Name. For His Name is His Glory! Throughout the scriptures we find the term House of Yahweh and it is this Name where Yahweh has revealed Himself and His Work. It is His family! We are called into this family by invitation, by adoption, and only through His calling. Any other way would be counterfeit. It would reveal an imposter. Yahweh is not the author of confusion. And as you study more into His Word, with a pure heart, Yahweh does reveal His intentions and promise.

 

The Apostle Shaul was one who was well versed in the Law and the Prophets. He studied at the feet of teachers who were knowledgeable in the Law. When reading his writings it is important to pay close attention to what he says and using the Law as a backdrop, it is then one can understand better what He was saying. Of course, there is nothing new under the sun, and at this time in our history we find the scriptures reveal to us insight and enlightment to our present surroundings. Right now is our time of calling. And when we use the scriptures to help us understand the time period or the events that are taken place around us, it is then that we can bring many scriptures up to date in our lives and use them as a looking glass which reflects what they mean to us at this time.

 

Reading from the book of Galatians we find some interesting points and insight into what the promise given to Abraham, has on our lives right now. Let’s proceed:

 

Galatians 3:14 Here we are shown that we, according to the blessings given to Abraham, by faith, receive the promise of the spirit.  

 

SPIRIT is word #4151 and means: the vital principle by which the body is animated.  The power by which a human being feels, thinks, wills, and decides. ANIMATED means: having life or alive.

So we can see that this Spirit that we receive, it gives our bodies life. It is part of our feelings, thinking, will, and helps us in our decision making. Just like anything if you don’t feed it, it won’t work as well as it should. We feed the Spirit by our faith and our efforts by proving to Yahweh through our obedience that what He has given us we take serious and want it to remain with us.

So what is the promise? The promise given to Abraham by Yahweh was that to His SEED: coming from him would be a great Nation and all nations would be blessed.

  1. All the land Abraham could see was for him and his offspring, forever. Gen 13:15; 12:7
  2. His offspring would be like the dust of the earth, which no man could number. Gen 13:16
  3. Wherever Abraham set his foot, Yahweh gave it to him. Gen. 13:17;
  4. Yahweh made a covenant with Abraham and vowed by Himself, which cannot be broken
  5. Once the covenant is ratified it cannot be broken. Galatians 3:15
  6. Walk before me uprightly and I will make a covenant to bless your seed exceedingly. Genesis 17:1,2
  7. Yahweh blessed Abraham: Genesis 12:1-3
  8. Make your name great. Genesis 12:2
  9. Yahweh will bless them that bless you. Genesis 12:3
  10. Yahweh will curse them that curse you. Genesis 12:3
  11. Yahweh will bless all families of the earth through you. Genesis 12:3
  12. Descendants would be like the stars in the sky. Genesis 15:5
  13. Yahweh gave the land from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates. Genesis 15:18
  14. You shall be a father of many nations--nations and kings shall come from you. Genesis 17:4-6
  15. Exceedingly fruitful. Genesis 17:6
  16. Kings shall come from you. Genesis 17:6
  17. Yahweh would establish His conditional everlasting covenant that he had with Abraham, with his descendants. Genesis 17:7
  18. Yahweh would be our Father. Genesis 17:8
  19. We must keep the covenant. Genesis 17:9
  20. We must be circumcised and this is an everlasting covenant. Genesis 17:10-14
  21. Yahweh blessed Sarah and she was the mother of nations and kings of people. Genesis 17:16
  22. The covenant was made with Isaac. Genesis 17:19,21
  23. Yahweh gave all the land of Canaan to Abraham and his seed. Genesis 17:8,9
  24. A specific promise is given of national power. Genesis 22:17
  25. All nations are blessed through the seed of Abraham. Genesis 22:18

 

From the Seed of Abraham, Yahshua Messiah came and we have all been blessed through him. One of the meanings of seed is: of moral quality; a practitioner of righteousness. Yahshua was our perfect example of one who practiced righteousness. Through Him we are no longer slaves but sons and as sons are heirs of Yahweh.  Galatians 4:6,7

 

Now the law is our teacher, Galatians 3:24 up to Messiah. When we are Known by Yahweh we are no longer in bondage to sin, or following gods. We are not to be enslaved by men or the idea that we cannot receive salvation unless we follow a man. In a physical sense, the law testifies that we can be slaves or free. In a spiritual sense it is talking about being slaves to sin, or free from sin. Galatians 4:21-31 Do we want to be free or slaves? If we are the seed of Abraham then we are free, for the children are free. Galatians 4:21

 

Who will persuade you to not follow truth? Galatians 5:7; 4:10

Do we love our brothers as we love ourself? Galatians 5:14 For the Law is accomplished through that very idea.

 

In Galatians 4:2 we are shown that we are under tutors and governors until the time appointed by Yahweh. The word Tutors is word #2012 and means: one who has the care and tutelage of children, either where the father is dead (a guardian of minors), or where the father is still alive.

The word Governors is word #3623 and means: 1) the manager of household or of household affairs-- a) esp. a steward, manager, superintendent (whether free-born or as was usually the case, a freed-man or a slave) to whom the head of the house or proprietor has intrusted the management of his affairs, the care of receipts and expenditures, and the duty of dealing out the proper portion to every servant and even to the children not yet of age. I Corinthians 4:1

 

The word “time appointed” is word #4287 and means: set beforehand, appointed or determined beforehand, prearranged.

 

Now this scripture shows that we are under the care as children of a manager, prearranged beforehand, who is not the owner of the estate, just the manager, who is to take care of the children or slaves, and has the duty of dealing out the proper portion until the children reach maturity, in our case our big brother is to be watching over us, just as Messiah does.

 

THE PROMISE OF ABRAHAM IN THE PRESENT TIME CONCERNING HOUSE OF YAHWEH

 

Now what do we see at the present time? Yahweh allowed a physical House of Yahweh to be founded in these last days in 1973 in Nazareth, Israyl. It was founded under the direction of Yaaqob Hawkins, the world overseer of the House of Yahweh at that time. It was Yaaqob who was called by Yahweh to use the name “House of Yahweh” and who established it according to scripture. As we find in Isayah 2:2, the word establish is word #3559 and means: to set up, erect, to confirm, to establish, to found, to direct, to prepare, make ready, to be firmly established, be restored. There can be no doubt whatsoever, that Yaaqob Hawkins did all of these things and once he re-established the physical House of Yahweh, the covenant of peace was restored through revealing of the name of Yahweh's family. This covenant cannot be added to or done away with, for this blessing came from the promise given to Abraham! Galatians 3:15 Remember this is the covenant that Yahweh made with Abraham also, vowing by Himself!

 

Ratified is defined as: To approve and give formal sanction to; confirm; To approve and sanction; to make valid; to confirm; to establish; to settle; especially, to give sanction to, as something done by an agent or servant; as, to ratify an agreement, treaty, or contract; to ratify a nomination.

 

The establishment of the House of Yahweh in 1973, was a valid agreement, treaty, and contract between Yahweh and Yaaqob Hawkins, for Yahweh has shown us in Genesis 22:14-16 that he vowed by Himself on the mountain of Yahweh (House of Yahweh), that through your Seed all nations will be blessed. Was not the restoring of the family name “House of Yahweh” in these last days the most blessed thing to occur in our generation? We are now blessed by being called a son of Yahweh, which we learned through the teachings! And since Yahweh has vowed that this is HIS WORK, then we can see that we, being a House of Yahweh, are blessed to know his righteous laws, which he has revealed through this work started by Yahshua Messiah in these last days, without whom we would not be here today calling ourselves House of Yahweh. So should we set up an idol or image of any man and worship him? By no means, for Yahweh will use men to teach His children, but that does not give them ownership, nor does that mean we are to worship them. It is Yahweh’s work, called House of Yahweh, Yahshua our Messiah, that is our witness to Yahweh's Law and Prophets. Yaaqob Hawkins wrote that He was not one of The Two Witnesses, but he was a witness to the Laws and Prophets of Yahweh, just as we are. If we enter the Covenant of Peace, we understand Messiah,  we understand Yahweh’s Last Days work called, Yahshua Messiah.

 

So with this in mind, we see that this work was established according to the covenant promise and we being seeds of this man’s work, if you believe you are the House of Yahweh, we have been nurtured by Yahshua's teachings, which is according to the Law and the Prophets. Now, after Yaaqob’s Hawkins death, the teachings and name, House of Yahweh was to be carried on. But his flesh and blood children, as well as those who were in Odessa let the work die, by bringing in customs from the East. These customs was to remove the name, House of Yahweh and call themselves, the House of HaShem. So Yahweh in His infinite wisdom, used His Law to make sure the Promise would be carried on and Yaaqob’s Seed would not die. So Yahweh allowed a caretaker and tutor the man, Yisrayl Hawkins to carry on the name, House of Yahweh. Yahweh used the Levirate Law to protect this work and His children. Yisrayl Hawkins was to manage and oversee his brother’s seed until the time of their maturity. For he was only acting as a tutor/governor on behalf of his dead brother in a trust created by Yahweh. This trust was given to him by Yahweh until the time appointed, when Yaaqob’s spiritual seed, we the children of the freeman, would call to account and reclaim our father’s inheritance (House of Yahweh). The Levirate Law states that if your brother dies, then you must take his wife (House of Yahweh) and bring forth a seed for your brother. So it was Yisrayl’s job to take the House of Yahweh and bring forth righteous seed from it, nurturing these children as His own for His brother, until they reach maturity and can claim what is rightfully theirs together as brothers. But what he has done is taken Yaaqob’s seed and claimed the House of Yahweh and the children as his own. Instead of protecting and preserving the estate for the children, he has deceptively become their ruler and King, instead of being their brother. He has stolen headship from Yahshua, by making himself the children's head.

 

So can a man steal what is Yahweh’s and not be held accountable? For Yisrayl Hawkins is also a seed of Yaaqob Hawkins and as a seed, he is supposed to be our brother, not our father. Now should a brother steal what is equally ours also? Well he can try, but then if he is found out according to the law, he must pay back double for the theft, as it is written: Exodus 22:7 “If a man gives his brother silver or possessions for safekeeping and they are stolen from his brother’s house, the thief, if he is caught, must pay back double.” We are Yahweh’s gold and silver, and have not been kept in safekeeping by the House of Yisrayl, now called the House of Yahweh.

And on a more serious law concerning theft: Deuteronomy 24:7 “If a man is caught stealing one of his brothers of the children of Israyl, and makes merchandise of him or selleth him, the thief must be put to death. In this way you will purge the evil from among you.”  Stealing is the word #1589 and means: to be stolen away, be brought by stealth. The word stealth is defined as: The act of moving, proceeding, or acting in a covert way. The act of stealing.  The word merchandise is word #6014 and means: to manipulate, deal tyrannically with.  

 

So concerning Yahweh’s law, Yisrayl Hawkins is a thief, acting covertly, manipulating and dealing tyrannically with Yahweh’s children, for he took what was Yaaqob’s, and Yahshua Messiah's, which was to be kept in safekeeping, and has claimed it as his own.  Yaaqob’s children or seed (the physical House of Yahweh) which was not Yisrayl’s to own, have been thrown out of the physical House of Yahweh, Abilene, in order for them to not have any claim to what is rightfully theirs. He has thrown his brothers and sisters out of the physical House of Yahweh without a cause in fulfillment of the prophet Isayah: “The righteous perish, and no man takes it to heart; merciful men are taken away, none considering; that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.” Yes, Yahweh has allowed these prophecies to be fulfilled and to protect the remnant of Yahweh in these last days. For it is written: “There is no peace, say my Father, for the wicked.”

 

Continuing on, Yisrayl Hawkins incorporation of the name “House of Yahweh” was an act of thievery towards his brother Yaaqob, and towards any believer, and a violation of Yahweh’s law. This law states to not make treaties (contracts such as incorporation) with the godworshipping nations. This act of thievery is what Yisrayl Hawkins uses against any who would use the name “House of Yahweh”, even against Yaaqob’s righteous seed, who are the rightful owners of the physical House of Yahweh. Had Yaaqob known what Yisrayl was to do, would he have incorporated? We will never know, but one thing for sure he didn’t see the need when he was alive and he knew the House of Yahweh belonged to Sovereign Yahweh and no man can own it. Obviously it was not Yahweh’s will for Yaaqob to incorporate and Yahweh allowed Yaaqob to die and the House of Yahweh’s name to be protected, up to this time, by Yisrayl Hawkins as according to the Levirate Law. In Mattithyah 24:43, Yahshua Messiah told us something important: “But know that if the householder had known the exact watch in the night the thief would come, he would have watched and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.” There is no doubt that Yaaqob Hawkins did not foresee that Yisrayl Hawkins would steal this work from him by incorporating the name “House of Yahweh”, creating a corporate 501c3, which offers protection by the beastly system. Yisrayl Hawkins when given the commission of Elder by The House of Yahweh in Odessa did not bring those whom Yahweh called to Odessa three times a year, nor did he send the tithes according to the law back to the Place where Yahweh had established His Name in Odessa. The work in Abilene, was a branch of the work in Odessa, commissioned and dedicated by the world overseer of the House of Yahweh, Yaaqob Hawkins. So Yisrayl Hawkins has become a thief to us also, stealing the name, House of Yahweh from us, by removing the free sons from the House of Yahweh and not restoring his brothers estate to it’s rightful owners.  

 

So at this time what we see is, mismanagement by Yisrayl Hawkins, of the estate or trust that Yahweh has given to Yaaqob Hawkins, called by name a “House of Yahweh”.  So as heirs of the promise, we have the right to stand up and show the house of Yisrayl their sins and demand our inheritance, which is the name “House of Yahweh” and that it be restored back to honor.  We must preach and publish the laws of Yahweh until Yahweh restores His inheritance back to His children. We must not show fear and at the same time be wise concerning evil.

 

YAHSHUA’S PROMISE TO US

 

The Holy Spirit is the deposit, guaranteeing what we will inherit. Ephesians 1:13 It is the Holy Spirit which leads us into all truth. We should always be asking Yahweh through Yahshua to give us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, for the full knowledge of Him. Revelation is a disclosure of truth, instruction, concerning holy things not known, given to us by Yahweh himself.

 

Reading about what Yahshua told his disciples concerning Holy Spirit, we need to take heed to his words here in Yahchanan 14:16, 26 “I will ask the Father and he will give you another Comforter, that it may remain with you forever---The Spirit of Truth! 26--But the Comforter--the Holy Spirit which Yahweh will send in my name, will teach you all things, and bring things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you.”

Comforter is word #3875 and means: one who pleads another’s cause before a judge, counsel for defense, an advocate.

Advocate is defined as: One that pleads in another's behalf; an intercessor.

 

It was Yahshua Messiah, who became our advocate and intercessor on behalf of us, because of our sins. Yahshua told us that anything we ask in His Name will be given, of course according to the Law and Prophets, and for the glorification of Yahweh! What a wonderful promise! We have to believe this in order for it to be a reality. We must put away the lust of the flesh and the incorruptability of our carnal minds. We are promised that Yahshua will come to us and he will teach us, through the Spirit that He gives us. Our teachers here in this world in the flesh are just tutors and cannot give us Holy Spirit or understanding. We get understanding by our efforts in doing the work of Yahweh by believing on the One Sent, Yahshua Messiah. The work of Yahweh is believing in the One Sent, Yahshua Messiah, of whom all things have been given to by the Father. If we believe this then we are walking as the disciples, but we must do it without fear or wavering. Do you believe?

 

Yahshua gave us a commandment to love one another, just as he loved us by being an atonement offering. It is hard to love, when we are treated as less than human. But we must find the courage and mercy that has been extended to us by our Heavenly Father, who gave his only begotten son, that we might have everlasting life. Love is word #25 and means: to regard the welfare of; to have a preference for.  

 

For this is the love of Yahweh:

  1. to love in deed and truth
  2. love one another with a pure heart
  3. love is not that we loved Yahweh, but that He Loved us, by sending Yahshua to die for us
  4. love is perfected in us, by us loving one another
  5. perfect love, casts out fear
  6. we keep His commandments
  7. making progress in our walk with Yahweh
  8. ministering to the saints

 

Should we not consider the above points about the Love of Yahweh and make sure that we hold fast to these scriptural words of encouragement? The main focus is to understand that Yahshua is our contact between us and Yahweh and when we walk as He walked, when we believe that He existed and went through the same trials that we have, it is then, that we can have a deeper understanding of what it is to know Yahweh and have Love.

 

We have ONE HEAD, Yahshua Messiah as Ephesians 1:10 clearly defines. It is this head over man, that we must look to for instruction. Yahweh has given all things to the Son, and He is the High Priest over the House of Yahweh. If you have Holy Spirit then you are the House of Yahweh.  The words are already here and written, we just have to study to show ourselves approved. There is no doubt that men will use faith as a springboard for their own selfish ambitions and we have seen this firsthand. We must go back to our roots and the foundation of our faith. Our first Love, the Holy Scriptures! Pray for understanding and ask Yahshua for guidance and to come into our hearts and minds and be in unity with Him, which will put us in unity with Yahweh. The law is there for us as a reminder that we are sinners, and it is our measuring rod, to see if we are fit for this great Kingdom. I encourage you to remain humble and stand firm on the foundation. We must look to the past so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes that were made and forge our future. We can see how in these last days, a man has been given power and authority and abused it. Now the House of Yahweh is a laughingstock to our enemies. This name has been treated with ridicule in West Texas, thanks to the greed of one man's selfish ambitions. Yahweh established the Melchizedek Priesthood, His House so that one individual could profit from it, and through one man, we profit. If He didn't then it would not be called a body. We must pray for Yisrayl Hawkins and the House of Yahweh, Abilene, and any sons of perdition, who use a physical House of Yahweh for monetary gain! We pray that our brothers would repent and turn from their evil ways. This should be our prayer and this is the love of our Messiah.

 

THE LAW CONCERNING A TRUE PROPHET AND A FALSE PROPHET

 

THE LAW CONCERNING THE TRUE PROPHET and THE FALSE PROPHET

 

When reading the Holy Scriptures we see that Yahweh sent prophets, both true and false to test the people. The test was whether they and us would follow the truth or a mixture of truth. He also provided within the Torah, a Law concerning the prophet who would prophecy of Yahweh’s plan and tell us what Yahweh commands in His Law. Now there were, and are, many prophets of Yahweh, some true and some false. The called out ones of Yahweh know that the true prophets of Yahweh, looked for the day of Yahshua Messiah’s coming. Just as we are looking for his coming once again. In this study we examine the Law concerning the Prophets of Yahweh, to reveal to you the difference between the true and the false prophet of Yahweh. Yahweh willing, this will help you come to a greater understanding of Yahweh and how to live by His Laws, by following the true prophet of Yahweh. May this also draw you closer to your brother and High Priest and High King, Yahshua Messiah. Reading from the Law of Yahweh we find the following concerning the Prophet that Yahweh brings to us, who is our brother and also inspired by Yahweh to speak the Laws of Yahweh and His Words and the false prophet who presumes to speak in Yahweh’s Name.

 

Deuteronomy 18:18-22 “I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers, and I will put my words in his mouth, and He will tell them everything I command him. Whoever will not listen to my words which he speaks in My Name, I will judge him for it. But a prophet who presumes to speak a word in My Name, which I have commanded him to say, or who speaks in the name of any god, that prophet must be put to death. And you may say to yourself: How can we know when a message has not been spoken by Yahweh? If what a prophet proclaims in the Name of Yahweh does not come to pass, or does not come true: that is a message that Yahweh has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not follow him at all!

 

Throughout the pages of the Holy Scriptures we see that Yahweh sent prophets, both true and false prophets. Each had a job to do and they did it according to Yahweh’s will. We will examine the prophets of Yahweh, both the true one and the false one. Keep in mind they are prophets of Yahweh, make no mistake that Yahweh’s will is done here on earth, just as it is in heaven. Examining the Law above in Deuteronomy 18:18-22 we see some key points that we need to keep in mind as we examine this law of Yahweh.

 

We see the mark of a true prophet:

  1. Will be established by Yahweh to arise and stand up for righteousness.
  2. He will come from among the brothers from the 12 tribes of Israyl.
  3. He will speak what Yahweh commands.
  4. Whoever doesn’t listen and obey the message will be judged by Yahweh.

 

We see the mark of a false prophet:

  1. He presumes to speak the message of Yahweh, which is not commanded.
  2. He speaks in the name of any god.
  3. His proclamation does not come to pass.
  4. His proclamation is not truth.
  5. He speaks presumptuously.

 

Yechetzqyah 14:9 But if that prophet is deceived to speak his own words, I Yahweh have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out My hands against him, and will destroy him from the midst of My people Israyl.”

 

So does Yahweh actually deceive a prophet? Or does that prophet deceive themselves? Yahweh allows men to go their own way, or Yahweh’s way, and to search within the Law which reveals the way of life or death. Yahweh has true prophets and false prophets which carry out their job as Yahweh’s vessels, some for honor and some for dishonor.

 

Yaaqob (James) 1:13,14Let no one say when he is tempted: I am tempted by Yahweh; for Yahweh cannot be tempted with evil, nor does He tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lusts, and enticed. Then when lust has conceived it brings forth sin; and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers.

 

I Corinthians 10:13 “There is no temptation taken hold of you, except what is common to man. And Yahweh is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also make a way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

 

Romans 9:21,22Does not the potter have power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor? What if Yahweh wanting to show His wrath, and to make His power known, bore with great patience the vessels of his wrath, prepared for destruction?

 

II Timayah (Timothy) 2:20 “However, in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some for honor and some for dishonor.”

 

You can be deceived if you follow a false prophets teachings. Or you can be true to Yahweh, by following a true prophet who teaches Yahweh’s Laws. Yahshua Messiah was and is the true prophet of Yahweh, who became life to us, bringing life to the Law. He was the living Torah, showing us by example that we must walk as he walked. He told us to become perfect, just as our Father in heaven is perfect. He made that statement when explaining about how we must love our brothers and not hate what we consider our enemies. He stated that this is the 2nd greatest commandment in the Laws of Yahweh. This love is the distinguishing mark between a true prophet of Yahweh and a false prophet of Yahweh.

 

Mattithyah (Matthew) 22:36-40 “Teacher, what is the greatest commandment in the Law? Yahshua said to him: You must love Yahweh your mighty one with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your might. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your brother as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.

 

The word hang is #2910 and means: to be suspended; to hang; used of the Law and the Prophets, they are summed up, or hanging on two precepts. The scales of justice whenever shown are held by chains balancing two scales. In the Law of Yahweh, the two scales are held up by the law and the prophets, which is the chains of righteousness. These two chains correspond with the two golden chains which held the Priest Breastplate, which represented the Law and Prophets, which held the 12 tribes of Israyl, close to the High Priest heart. The 12 tribes of Israyl, is the Melchizadek Priesthood, a priesthood after the order of Messiah, or the annointed ones of Yahweh. A people who teach and administer truth and justice. They are the ones who enter the Holy Place and their High King, and High Priest, Yahshua Messiah, enters the Most Holy Place on their behalf at this time. The High Priest Breastplate is held up with two chains: Love for Yahweh and Love for their Brother, each representing the order of Peace, for the Kings and Priests of Yahweh, which Yahweh’s is creating.

 

The true Laws of Yahweh and the true Prophets of Yahweh, teach the true love of Yahweh. The Laws and the Prophets bind us like chains to Yahweh which is held close over Yahshua’s heart and our Hearts. These chains cannot be broken by righteousness. Only sin breaks these chains and we are separated if we allow deception and false teachings to rule in our lives. If we folllow the Law and the true Prophets of Yahweh, then these chains are unbroken because of righteousness.  

 

TRUE PROPHETS OF YAHWEH

 

We see in the scriptures that Yahweh has brought forth many true prophets to teach and instruct the people and to save those whom Yahweh calls into His family. Abraham is spoken of by Yahweh as being a true prophet.

 

Genesis 20:7 “Now therefore, restore the man’s wife; for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you shall live...”

 

The High Priest Aaron was also spoken of as being a true prophet.

 

Exodus 7:1 “Then Yahweh said to Mosheh: See, I have made you a mighty one to Pharoah, and Aaron your brother will be your prophet.

 

Samuyl, a minister of Yahweh, was a Judge and also a spoken of as a true prophet of Yahweh to the children of Israyl.

 

I Samuyl 3:20 “Then all Israyl, from Dan to Beersheba, knew that Samuyl was established as a prophet of Yahweh.”

 

The scriptures show us many righteous, true prophets of Yahweh. Nathan, Ahiyah, Yahu son of Hanani, Yliyah, Ylisha, Micahyah son of Imlah, Yahnah son of Amittai, Isayah son of Amoz, Shemayah, Iddo, Oded, Yeremyah son of Hilkiyah, Haggai, Yechetzqyah, Habbakkuk, Yahnah, Chagyah, Zecharyah, and Yahchanan who prepared the way for the Greatest True Prophet, Yahshua Messiah.  

 

One thing that these prophets did because of their love for Yahweh and their brothers was that hey stood up for Yahweh and His Laws. They were not afraid of Kings, Pharoahs, Emperors, Governors, Generals, Captains, Commanders, Priests, Elders, False Prophets, Overseers, Church Leaders, nor afraid in any man’s presence, to tell them what Yahweh had revealed and judged concerning them, or the nation, even at the risk of their own lives. They were not prophesying for the love of money or material possessions. They didn’t build empires and make slaves of their brothers. They stood out as examples of true brotherly love because of their love for the people and the love they had for the Almighty Creator of Heaven and Earth, Yahweh. They didn’t lie, or deny the people of Yahweh, nor were they ashamed of any of Yahweh’s Laws. They stood before those who had the power to kill them and stood boldly representing the Name of Yahweh. They were uncompromising and didn’t falter in their mission to do the work of Yahweh. They used wisdom and fled from danger, and from those who would kill them, when necessary, in order to accomplish the work of Yahweh. Yahweh revealed to them the things He wanted them to do and they carried out the words of Yahweh. They stood out as True Prophets of Yahweh by their righteous fruits which came from the tree of righteousness.  When we follow the teachings of true prophets we are not deceived. The only way we cannot be deceived is to follow the Law of Yahweh and the True Prophets of Yahweh. This takes years and sometimes Yahweh leads a believer on a journey in life that brings him through many schools of learning, tests, and trials. We are sifted like fine flour until we are perfect for the offering. Like fine silver and gold, which is perfected through much refining.

 

PROPHECY IS FOR THE BELIEVERS, OR A TRUE PROPHET IS FOR THE BELIEVERS

 

One of the most misunderstood topics for the believers who trust in the scripture, is attempting to understand Prophecy. For hundreds of years men have attempted to know Prophecy that is recorded in scripture, many without getting the prophecies correct. When a preacher or teacher attempts to reveal prophecy to their congregations, if they don’t allow the spirit of Yahweh to reveal the true understandings of Yahweh’s message, they are spoken of as a false prophet. There have been false prophets around as long as there have been true prophets. In the Apostles day we find that the Disciples warned the believers of such teachers. Reading from the book of Kepha we find the following information concerning false prophets.

 

II Kepha 2:1,2  “But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Redeemer who bought them, and bringing in swift destruction upon themselves. And many will follow their destructive ways, and because of them, the way of truth will be defamed.”

 

KJV “But 1161 there were 1096 false prophets 5578 also 2532 among 1722 the people 2992, even 2532 as 5613 there shall be 2071 false teachers 5572 among 1722 you 5213, who 3748 privily shall bring in 3919 damnable 684 heresies 139, even 2532 denying 720 the Lord 1203 that bought 59 them 846, and bring 1863 upon themselves 1438 swift 5031 destruction 684.”

 

In Strong’s Greek Dictionary and Thayer’s Greek Lexicon we find the following definitions of key words in this scripture.

 

False Prophets is words #5578 from #5571 and #4396, which has the following meaning: one who acting the part of a divinely inspired prophet, utters falsehood under the name of divine prophecies; a false prophet.  Word #5571 means: lying, deceitful, false. Word #4396 means: to speak forth, speak out; an interpreter or spokesman for Yahweh. One who moved by the spirit of Yahweh, and hence his organ or spokesman, solemnly declares to men what he has received by inspiration, esp. future events, and in particular such as relate to the cause and Kingdom of Yahweh and to human salvation.

False Teacher is word #5572, from #5571 and #1320 which has the following meaning: a false teacher. Word #1320 means: one who teachers concerning the words of Yahweh and the duties of man; one who is fitted to teach or thinks himself so; Of those who in the religious assemblies of the Christians, undertook the work of teaching, with the special assistance of the Holy Spirit.

Damnable is word #684 and means: destroying, utter destruction; a perishing, ruin, destruction of money; the destruction which consists of the loss of eternal life, eternal misery, perdition.

Heresies is the word #139 and means: a body of men separating themselves, following their own tenets (sect or party) a) of the Sadducees b) of the Pharisees c) of the Christians; dissensions arising from diversity of opinions and aims.

So we can see that the Apostle Kepha was saying is: these false prophets or teachers, have been among the people then and now. And that they would utter falsehood, lying, being deceitftul, acting as a spokesman for Yahweh, declaring to men that they are inspired, thinking that they are teachers, destroying through the love of money, by being sons of perdition, and separating themselves by following their own tenets, from their own sects or party lines, which will create dissensions because of their opinions and aims, instead of following the Laws of Yahweh,.

 

Notice what Kepha says next in verse 3: “And in their covetousness they will exploit you with feigned words.”

 

KJV “And 2532 through 1722 covetousness 4124 shall they with feigned 4112 words 3056 make merchandise 1710 of you 5209: whose 3739 judgment 2917 now of a long time 1597 lingereth 691 not 3756, and 2532 their 846 damnation 684 slumbereth 3573 not 3756.”

 

Covetousness is word #4124 and means: greedy desire to have more. From #4123 which means: One eager to have more, especially what belongs to others.

Feigned is word #4112 and means: moulded or formed. In Websters Dictionary this word means: to give a false appearance of; to represent falsely; to imitate so as to deceive.

Merchandise is word #1710 and means: to go trading; to use a thing or a person for gain.

 

So we can see that: For their greedy desire to have more, especially what belongs to others, they will imitate, being falsely represented as righteous ministers, to deceive, and use people for their gain. They are never satisfied, but always want more, taking to fulfill their fleshly desires.

 

The Apostle Kepha gives us insight into the mind of a false prophet and teacher. They don’t preach or prophesy for the love of Yahweh and His people, so they can learn the truth of Yahweh. They do it for the love of money!  The Apostle Shaul spoke of these people also.

 

I Timothy 6:9,10 “But those who want to become rich will fall into temptation and a trap, and into many foolish and harmful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil, which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

 

II Corinthians 11:15 “Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose ends shall be according to their works.”

 

So we can see that False Prophets are never satisfied with teaching Yahweh’s Laws. Their desire is to have what belongs to others, and they desire the lusts of the flesh, to satisfy their greed. Their love is for money, silver, gold, and other peoples possessions. False prophets come as ministers of righteousness. They are false Preachers of Yahweh whose teachings are subtle enough to fool the believers into thinking they are righteous teachings. These false prophets were always condemning Yahweh’s Holy righteous servants. As is is written: “Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for reward, and have perished in the rebellion of Korah!”

 

THE WAY OF CAIN

 

The first righteous Priest of Yahweh recorded in scripture was named Abel. He was a man who started a work of Yahweh and who was not interested in doing this work for money. He brought forth the righteous sacrifice to Yahweh, which was righteous teachings from the Laws of Yahweh, they were pure and brought purity to those who accepted and lived by them. This work, metaphorically pictured as being in a Garden, was the first House of Yahweh, where righteous teachings came forth. It was placed there by Yahweh to preach the message of the Kingdom to all those whom Yahweh was calling. There is nothing new under the sun, so the message today is the same message that was yesterday and tomorrow. Abel’s teachings were acceptable before Yahweh, just as our righteous teachings can be acceptable, if we follow the true prophets of Yahweh.

 

Genesis 2:8 “And Yahweh, the one true Judge, planted a Garden, eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.”

KJV “And the LORD 3068 God 430 planted 5193 a garden 1588 eastward 6924 in Eden 5731; and there 8033 he put 7760 the man 120 whom 834 he had formed 3335

 

The word Lord is #3068 and means: Yahweh

The word God is #430 and means: the true mighty one; judge.

The word planted is #5193 and means: to plant, establish; to be established.

The word Garden is #1588 and means: a garden planted with trees; figuratively used of a chaste woman. From #1598 and means: to cover; to protect; always used of Yahweh as protecting men.

The word eastward is #6924 and means: that which is before, before; the east, eastern quarter; from #6923 which means: to meet, to come or be in front of; to precede, to go before

The word Eden is #5731 and means: delight; pleasure;

The word there is #8033 and means: there; at that time; from that thing

The word put is #7760 and means: to put, to set, to place (referring to things standing upright); to found; to place His name anywhere; to set his seat anywhere.

The word man is #120 and means: man; to denote men, the human race.

The word whom is #834 and means: who, which, that;

The word formed is #3335 and means: to form, to fashion (as a potter,clay); to form in the mind, devise, plan; to destine for anything;  

 

Yahweh established a chaste woman (House of Yahweh), to protect mankind, which is before Yahweh and pleases Him through righteous service. He placed His Name at this House, where men are formed as vessels, some for honor and some for dishonor.

 

This Garden of Yahweh reveals the pattern of the tabernacle, as shown to Mosheh in the wilderness. There Yahweh’s Priest entered the courts and the Holy of Holies through the Eastern Gate to come before Yahweh’s presence in Yahweh’s House. Let’s consider this for a moment as we consider the Garden of Yahweh and the word Eastward and how it relates to the true prophet of Yahweh.

 

Now consider the pattern of this tabernacle for a moment. For there was only one gate to enter into it. This gate was the only way to access Yahweh. And there was only one way! This gate was in the east where the rising sun would enter it at first light. This east gate is open for the light to enter and which we enter, that light is Yahweh, His Laws, and His Son, the True Prophet, Yahshua Messiah, who is our Eastern gate. For Yahshua Messiah was of the tribe of Yahdah, the law givers and protecters of the Law, who also camped on the east side, toward the rising of the sun, as it is written: “On the east side, toward the rising of the sun, the divisions of the camp of Yahdah are to encamp under this standard.” The rising sun, which represented the light of Yahweh, would first fall upon the eastern gate and the tribe of Yahdah, showing the way of approach to Yahweh. There was no back or side entrance into the House of Yahweh, and he who entered would do so in the light (righteousness through Yahshua Messiah). For the true prophet of Yahweh teaches one way, one baptism, one faith, one spirit, one body, one gateway facing Eastward, one Father, one Messiah, for Yahweh is One and Father of us all!

 

This one East gate entering the tabernacle was wide, but low, being twenty cubits wide, by five cubits high. This gate was for us all, home born, stranger, grey haired, child, prince, beggar, rich, poor, man or woman, true prophet, who would enter side by side into the House of Yahweh.  So it is with Yahshua Messiah, whom we were all saved with the common salvation, for the common man, our brother in righteousness. The East gate was wide, but low. It may be contrasted with the door of the Holy Place, the dimensions of which were ten cubits high by ten cubits wide. These, both doors, are alike in total measurement, but the door is twice the height and only half the width of the gate. The leading thought in the door, is height, in the gate, width. The application for these is evident. The Holy Place was only for the Holy Priests, those of the order of Melchizadek, the true prophets of Yahweh. Others were not allowed to enter there. Its entrance was therefore the narrow one. The privileges of the family of Yahweh are not for the world. And even though most can and will enter the court of the tabernacle (the House of Yahweh), as Yahweh calls them to be tested, not many will enter the Holy Place of Yahweh, which door is narrow. As it is written: “Enter in through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who go that way. Because straight is the gate and narrow is the door and way which leads to eternal life and the priesthood, and few there are who find it.”

 

So should we be satisfied to just enter into the Eastern gate into the court of the tabernacle, or do we want to enter into the narrow Eastern door into the Priesthood? Think on these things brethren. For the unconverted, defiled, and false prophet are not allowed to enter the Holy Place. The Eastern gate of the tabernacle in which you enter the courts of Yahweh was wide, and any, or all whom Yahweh calls, can enter and hear the message of Yahweh by the true or false prophet. For it is written: “For Yahweh’s will is that all men might be saved,” so there is no doubt whatsoever about the width of the gate, for Yahweh’s mercy is wide. The salvation of Yahweh, preached by the true prophet is for those lost, so that they may be found. We have been found and now we can enter the Holy Place through Yahshua our Messiah, our salvation, the true prophet of Yahweh, as it is written: “I am the Door; by Me if any man enters in, he SHALL BE SAVED.” Shall be saved, is a phrase where there is no doubt and no uncertainties of Yahshua’s Intentions. But only a few shall be saved to enter the Holy Place, for one must put off all the carnal passions and the lust of life in order to follow Yahshua. The false prophet stands in the outer court teaching, but he is there to test us. Yahweh is allowing us to be tested to see if we are going to study and prove all things of what is preached to us. Yahweh uses this false prophet in order to see whether you will follow Yahweh, or a man. The Apostle Shaul warned us many times in no uncertain terms to be careful of this type of worship.

 

I Corinthians 7:23 “You were bought with a price, do not become slaves of men!”

 

I Corinthians 3:21 “So then, let no one boast in a man! For all things are yours.”

 

Galatians 1:10So now, who am I trying to please, man or Yahweh? Do I seek to be a man-pleaser? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of the Messiah!”

 

II Corinthians 11:13-15For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Messiah. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers are also transformed as the ministers of righteousness whose end will be according to their works.”

 

We are warned not to become slaves of men, or boast by a man, or to please men, for in doing so we cannot serve Yahshua Messiah. For you cannot have two masters. We must remember that false prophets transform themselves into apostles of Messiah and appear righteous to deceive you. Their teachings are subtle and crafty, just as Satan is described in the Garden of Yahweh.

 

Genesis 3:1 “Now the serpent 5175 was 1961 more subtil 6175 than any beast 2416 of the field 7704 which the LORD 3068 God 430 had made 6213 . And he said 559 unto the woman 802, Yea 637, hath God 430 said 559 , Ye shall not eat 398 of every tree 6086 of the garden 1588?”

 

The word serpent is #5175 and means: a serpent, so called from it’s hissing; from #5172 meaning: to whisper, used of the whispering of soothsayers; to practice divination or sorcery; divine, observe signs, learn by experience, diligently observe, practice fortunetelling, take as an omen; to practice divination, to observe the signs or omens. Definition of fortunetelling in Webster’s Dictionary: the art or gift of prophecy (or the pretense of prophecy) by supernatural means.

The word was is #1961 and means: to be, to exist; to be, become, come to pass, exist, happen, fall out; to come into being, become; to become like; to be instituted, be established; to be; to exist, be in existence.

The word field is #7704 and means: field, land; a plain, meadow which is plowed and sown. Empires of a King.  A King who is served by his people.

Remember Satan was in the Garden, not outside of it. Also keep in mind that there was two trees in the Garden, a tree of life and a tree of knowledge of righteousness and evil. From the above definitions we can see a plan of Yahweh at work. Genesis is written metaphorically in many passages and is part of the Torah. It is not just pretty little stories, but an deeper insight into the Laws of Yahweh. We can see from the above definitions, that the Garden of Yahweh was not a place where Yahweh’s people did some gardening to just produce some physical fruit to eat. This is future prophecies, that portray the plan of Yahweh, that Yahshua Messiah understood clearly.

 

We can get the following information from the above passage to mean:

 

Now the sorcery, and observation of signs and wonders, through fortunetelling, were established and instituted by crafty and prudent counsel, false prophets who prophesied by means other than by Yahweh’s Laws, whose teachings were like the hissing of a serpent, Satan’s ministers, who tickle the peoples ears. This came into being and rather than bring health to the community and eternal life and the restoration of life, the lie was sown into the world, by these false prophets. This teaching was taught to the empires of the Kingdom of Yahweh, whose people served Him. Yahweh, our husband, the true mighty one, through his work and labour, through his command, put in order his celebration and observations of his Law, by his servants and ministers, his true prophets, allowing this to take place so that his servants can be tested to see who they would follow. Indeed, showing something greater, should be taken and ate, the Son of Man, the true sacrifice which hung on a stake. The tree of life, which was shown as a chaste woman, the true House of Yahweh, which Yahweh established to protect mankind, brought forth true fruits of repentance. Those who follow the false prophet will be gathered to be devoured by fire, according to their fruits or works!

 

Psalm 58:1-4Do you indeed speak righteousness, O You Counselors? Do you judge uprightly, O you rulers? No! In heart you work iniquity, and you weigh out the violence in your hands to the land! The wicked are alienated from the womb; they go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies. Their poison is like the venom of serpents, like that of a deaf adder that stops it’s ears.”

Psalm 140:1-4Deliver us, O Yahweh, from the evil man; from the man of violence, protect us; Because they devise evil plans in their hearts; all the day they conspire warfare. Their tongues are sharpened like a serpent. The poison of an adder is under their lips. Selah. Keep us from the hands of the wicked, O Yahweh. Protect us from violent men, whose purpose is to pervert our ways.”

Yeremyah 46:22The voice (hissing) thereof shall go like a serpent; for they shall march with an army, and come against her with axes, as hewers of wood.”

II Corinthians 11:2,3 “For I am jealous for you with Yahweh’s own jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to the Messiah. But I fear, that by any means, as the serpent subtly deceived Eve (Life) with his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted, and led astray from the simplicity that is in the Messiah; For if he who comes preaches another Messiah, which we have not preached, or if you accept a different spirit, which you have not received, or another message which you have not accepted, you might well put up with him!

 

Yahshua knowing the Laws of Yahweh and understanding this prophecy in Genesis, expounded in His teachings of the meaning of the teachings of the true prophet and the false prophet. He spoke this in a parable, which is for our understanding. If you have ears listen to what Yahshua is saying!

 

Mattithyah 12:17-30, 38-43 “For truly I say to you: Many prophets and righteous men have desired to see what you see, and have not seen; and to hear what you hear, and have not heard. Therefore, hear the parable of the sower! When anyone hears the word of the Kingdom, but does not understand, then comes the wicked one, and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. As for what was sown in stony places, the same is he who hears the word, and at once receives is with joy. But since he has no root in himself, he endures only for awhile; for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he is offended. Now that which was sown among the thorns is he who hears the word, but the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches chokes the word and he becomes unfruitful. But that which was sown in the rich ground is he who hears the word, and understands; he also bears fruit, and brings forth some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

He presented another parable to them, saying: The Kingdom of Yahweh may be compared to a man who sowed worthy seed in his field; But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, then when his way. So when the plants grew up, the wheat formed ears of grain and the tares were discovered. Then the servants of the Householder went to him, and said: Ruler, did you not sow worthy seed in your field? Where then did the tares come from? he said to them; An enemy has done this. The servants said to him; Do you want us to go and pull them up? But he said No, or you might root up the wheat while you are pulling out the tares. Let us both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers: First gather together the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn. The field is the world; the worthy seed are the children of the Kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one, the enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are the malakim. Just as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so will it be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out his malakim, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all who cause others to fall away, and those who break the Law of Yahweh. And cast them into a furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

 

THE GARDEN OF YAHWEH HAS THE TREE OF LIFE AND THE TREE OF A MIXTURE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND EVIL THAT TESTS MANKIND

 

The Garden of Yahweh is the House of Yahweh, the body of believers, Sons of Yahweh, after the order of Melchizadek, the order called Messiah, who have before them true and false prophets to test them. We are free moral agents to choose whose teachings we will follow. If we eat from the tree of life, which is righteousness through Yahshua Messiah, the trees fruit will be our food for everlasting life. If we eat of the tree that has the mixture then we will be destroyed. Remember the trees gave us knowledge, of either, righteousness or evil. False prophets teach a mixture. They deceived us from receiving eternal life and entering into the Holy Place.

 

Genesis 2:9 “And out of the ground Yahweh made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and desirable for food. The Tree of Life was in the midst of the Garden, and the Tree of Knowledge of Righteousness and Evil.

 

Psalm 1:1-3Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the unrighteous (false prophet), nor who stands in the path of sinners, nor who sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the Law of Yahweh, and in His Law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, which yields it’s fruit in it’s season, and whose leaf does not wither; whatever this man does will succeed!”

 

Psalm 37:35I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

 

Psalm 52:8 But I am like a green olive tree in the House of Yahweh: I trust in the mercy of Yahweh for ever and ever.”

 

Proverbs 3:18She (the Laws of Yahweh) is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and joyful is every one that hold fast to her.”

 

Proverbs 11:30The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; he (the true prophet) who wins souls is wise.”

 

The Tree of Life contains the righteous laws that we read, learn, and apply in our life. The Tree of Life is Yahshua our Messiah, who is our gateway into the Kingdom. The Laws of Yahweh is the knowledge of righteousness and evil and they bring judgement to us. They teach us right and wrong. They show us how to love Yahweh and how to love mankind which Yahweh is creating in his image. And they teach us the curses that come from breaking the Laws of Yahweh. Yahweh’s Laws are given to us to show us how to stop sinning. The tree of righteousness and evil is a mixture, it contains blessings and curses. It is before us also, and it is there to test us to see if we will follow Yahweh’s Laws. When a person is called out they have a choice to eat from either of these trees. They allow themselves to be taught and it is up to each individual to make a choice through the teachings. Yahweh is not forcing us to be righteous, nor does he tempt us with evil. We are tempted when we follow the lust of the flesh. We have to keep in mind that both of these trees have teachings. And every student is taught by either true or false prophets. It is up to the student to follow the righteous teacher and receive the gifts of the spirit, or they can follow the unrighteous teacher and be fed the lusts of the flesh.

 

Exodus 20:20 “Mosheh said to the people; Do not fear; for Yahweh has come to test you, so that the reverence of Yahweh will be with you to keep you from sinning.”

 

Deuteronomy 30:15See I have set before you today life and righteousness, death and destruction.

 

Yaaqob (James)1:13Let no one say when he is tempted: I am tempted by Yahweh; for Yahweh cannot be tempted with evil, nor does He tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lusts, and enticed.”

 

When we hear the word of Yahweh, whether it is from a true prophet or a false prophet, we must make a determination if what is spoken is truth. If we don’t we deceive ourselves.

 

Yaaqob 1:22,23 “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his natural features in a mirror.”

 

How can we determine if what is spoken is truth or a mixture?

 

I Thessalonians 5:2Prove all things, hold fast to that which is righteous.”

 

Galatians 6:4But let every man prove his own work, then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.”

 

II Timayah (Timothy) 2:15Study to show yourself approved to Yahweh: a workman who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

 

II Timayah (Timothy) 3:16,17All scripture given through inspiration of Yahweh is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of Yahweh may become perfect, thoroughly furnished for every righteous work.”

 

ABEL’S WORK, A TRUE PROPHET OF YAHWEH,  A RIGHTEOUS WORK OF YAHWEH; CAIN’S WORK, A FALSE PROPHET OF YAHWEH, A MIXTURE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND EVIL, A CHURCH

 

Hebrews 11:4 “By faith, Abel offered to Yahweh a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness, that he was righteous, Yahweh testifying of his gifts; and through it, he being dead, yet speaks.”

 

The word gifts is word #1435 and means: a gift, present; gifts offered in expression of honour of sacrifices and other gifts offered to God; of money cast into the treasury for the purposes of the House of Yahweh and for the support of the poor.

 

Abel, the true prophet of Yahweh, was not concerned with doing the work of Yahweh for money or to fulfil a desire of personal lust and gain, his gift was eternal life. His sacrifice was acceptable to Yahweh, he brought forth righteous fruits of righteous vessels to Yahweh. Abel’s love was for the people of Yahweh and the work of the House of Yahweh (the chaste woman), which offered protection and support to all those who come to Yahweh. Cain, the false prophet of Yahweh, on the other hand, was a son of perdition. He was covetous, and wanted to fulfill his own greedy lusts, thinking that riches would bring him peace. He thought money would give him power. He had no love for the people of the House of Yahweh. If he did he would have been a righteous shepherd to the people of Yahweh.

 

I Yahchanan (John) 3:11,12For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and murdered his brother. And why did he murder his brother? Because his works were evil and his brother’s were righteous.

 

The righteous works of Abel that we must follow is to love your brother as yourself! This is the second greatest commandment in the Law! My children let us not love in words, neither in speech, but in deed and truth.

 

Cain hated his brother and did not show brotherly love. Because Abel’s work was a righteous work of true love, that showed love to the family of Yahweh, the body of believers, Abel loved his brother as himself.

 

Yahdah 1:11 “Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward and perished in the rebellion of Korah!”

 

These three people are examples, for our learning, about the deceptive way, or mark of Cain. They are examples to the believers of the false prophet and his character, intentions and ways. The false prophet of Yahweh doesn’t know he is deceived, he believes that he is teaching truth, but he is misled. Cain didn’t know or think he was deceived. He believed his way was right, after all he was a prophet of Yahweh! If Cain didn’t think he was right, do you think he would have brought his offerings before Yahweh? Only the Priests brought offerings before Yahweh. Yahweh didn’t accept the offerings of Cain, because Cain was deceived into thinking he could get rich and powerful by doing the work of Yahweh. His way was a mixture of righteousness and evil, but not a way to the Tree of Life! Yahweh is not mocked! We see this same mark of Cain today in preachers, teachers, and false prophets of Yahweh, who do the work of Yahweh, for the love of money and deceive the people.

 

Deceived is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as: To cause to believe what is not true; mislead; To catch by guile. Guile is defined as: treacherous cunning; skillful deceit.

 

I Corinthians 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks he is wise by the standards of this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise.”

 

Galatians 6:3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something when he is nothing; he deceives himself.

 

I Yahchanan 1:8If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.”

 

Ephesians 5:6Let no man deceive you with vain words, for because of these things comes the wrath of Yahweh, upon the children of disobedience.

 

The word vain is #2756 and means: empty, devoid of truth; metaphorically, destitute of spiritual wealth, of one who boasts of his faith as a transcendent possession, yet is without the fruits of faith. Transcendent is defined as: Surpassing others; preeminent or supreme.

 

Yes, some say they are the pre-eminent, supreme, or a Messiah for the people. They say that you cannot receive salvation without going through them because they are your head on earth. They think that they have Yahweh guiding them, but Yahweh has rejected their offerings, because it is not acceptable to Him. This false prophet does not teach brotherly love, nor do his students. Yahweh knows their hearts and intentions. Yahshua Messiah our Head, spoke of these false prophets.

 

Mattithyah (Matthew) 24:4,5,11 “Yahshua answered and said to them: Be on guard, so that no man deceives you; For many will come against my Name saying: I have salvation (annointed)! and will deceive many. And many false prophets shall rise and shall deceive many.”

 

Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, Yahweh is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that will he also reap.”

 

Notice we are warned to be on guard that no man deceives you. So we are to be on guard against men. Men who profess to be servants of Yahweh, but are false prophets and servants of Yahweh, but lie. They work through the deceit of their own minds. This is how Yahweh tests us, to see if we will follow a man or Yahweh. As it says in the above mentioned scripture: “for whatever a man sows, that will he also reap.” If we sow the seeds of righteousness, we reap righteous fruits. If we are taught by a minister false teachings, we must examine for ourselves and prove this work, or we will reap unrighteous fruits. Of course Yahweh uses men to preach, but we should follow the righteous teachings of true men of Yahweh, not the men, but the message.  We become servants to the righteous teachings, we should not become slaves to the teacher.

 

Romans 6:16Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves as servants to obey, his servants you are whom you obey; whether of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience which leads to righteousness?

 

What is your Overseer teaching? Is he doing it by example, or just lip service? Is he getting richer, and you getting poorer? Is he a millionaire, and you a dollar-aire? Is there management of the tithes and offerings, or a counsel of peace advisors that every Overseer should be held accountable to? Is he in complete control of the money? Is he expecting worship instead of teaching those to worship Yahweh. Does he have a counsel of peace advisors, to insure that greed and corruption doesn’t breed within the organizations hiearchy? Is your House of Yahweh a corporation? Please email us for the Law of Treaties with Godworshipping Nations which addresses this Law concerning corporations. These are important questions that every House of Yahweh should address. A holy and righteous manager should have no problem adhering to a Sanhedrin court or a counsel or righteous advisers. This is the Law of Yahweh to have a counsel of Elders who give counsel through the covenant of peace, who manage as a body, the business of Yahweh’s House, so that money and power doesn’t corrupt the leaders.

 

Proverbs 24:6 “For by wise counsel you will wage your own war, and in a multitude of wise counselors you will find safety.”

 

Ecclesiastes 4:13 “Better to be a poor but wise child, than an old and foolish king, who will no longer accept admonishment.”

 

DECEPTION, THE WAY OF CAIN

 

Deception, this is the way of Cain, the false prophet who teaches contrary to the Laws of Yahweh is deceived, he lacks brotherly love. This man teaches a mixture of righteousness and evil. That is why it is so deceiving, because even the false prophet can’t tell it’s a mixture and that he is deceived.

 

Yahdah (Jude) 1:4 “For there are certain men who have secretly crept in, who were before of old, ordained for this condemnation, unholy men, who turn the undeserved pardon of our One Supreme Savior Yahweh into licentiousness, and deny Yahshua our Messiah.”

 

Yahdah 1:11KJV “Woe 3759 unto them 846! for 3754 they have gone 4198 in the way 3598 of Cain 2535, and 2532 ran greedily after 1632 the error 4106 of Balaam 903 for reward 3408, and 2532 perished 622 in the gainsaying 485 of Core 2879.”

Way is word #3598 and means: in the way; towards; a course of conduct; a way (i.e. manner) of thinking, feeling, deciding.

Error is word #4106 and means: one led astray from the right way, roams hither and thither; error, wrong opinion relative to morals or religion; error, that which leads into error, deceit or fraud. From #4108 and means: wandering, roving; misleading, leading into error; a vagabond, tramp, imposter, corrupter, deceiver.

Reward is word #3408 and means: dues paid for work; wages, hire. Wages obtained by iniquity. Reward: used of the fruit naturally resulting from toils and endeavours; in both senses, rewards and punishments.

Perished is word #622 and means: to destroy; to put out of the way entirely, abolish, put an end to ruin; to declare that one must be put to death.

Gainsaying is word #485 and means: gainsaying, contradiction, opposition, rebellion; From word #483 and means: to speak against, gainsay, contradict; to oppose one's self to one, decline to obey him, declare one's self against him, refuse to have anything to do with him.

 

The above definitions are the descriptions of the deceived, false prophet, who is a seed of Cain. They don’t follow the way of Yahweh. They think the way of Yahweh is for their own gain. They think it is done for their profit, but for the profit of the body of Messiah. They are mislead and are led astray from the righteous path. Yahshua Messiah said that they enter the broad gate of destruction, but don’t enter the door which is narrow and leads to eternal life. He stated that the false prophet of Yahweh comes in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly is a ravenous wolf. He is a mixture, he appears righteous, but he brings forth fruits that are against the laws of Yahweh.

 

Mattithyah (Matthew) 7:13-20 “Enter in through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who go that way. Because straight is the door, and narrow is the way which leads to life, and few there are who find it. Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You will know them by their fruits; do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every righteous tree brings forth righteous fruit; but a tree of evil brings forth fruit of iniquity. A righteous tree cannot bring forth fruits of iniquity, nor can a tree of evil bring forth fruit of righteousness. Every tree which does not bring forth righteous fruit is cut down, and cast into the fire. Therefore, by their fruits you will know them.

 

Mattithyah 12:33 “Either make the tree righteous and its fruit righteous, or else make the tree evil and its fruit iniquity; for a tree is know by its fruit!

 

Yahshua Messiah told us in no uncertain terms that we will know a false prophet by their fruits, or the fruit that they bring forth through their teachings! The Apostle Shaul expounded on the Messiah’s teachings and the Law of Yahweh, explaining the fruits from the trees, which is pictured metaphorically as the Garden of Yahweh. The fruits of the false prophet is the teachings which bring forth a fleshly carnal man and his lusts for the flesh. The fruits of the true prophet bring forth righteous teachings, which bring forth the spirit of Yahweh.

 

Galatians 5:17-23For the lusts of the flesh are against the Spirit of Yahweh, and the Spirit of Yahweh is against the lusts of the flesh; for the one opposes the other. But you, be mindful, whatever things you will, those things you do. For if you are led by the Spirit, are you not under the Law? For the works of the flesh are obvious, which are these:

  1. adultery
  2. fornication
  3. uncleaness
  4. licentiousness
  5. godworship
  6. evil jealousies
  7. rage
  8. selfish ambitions
  9. dissensions
  10. heresies
  11. envy
  12. murders
  13. drunkenness
  14. revelries

and the like; of which I warn you beforehand, just as I did in times past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of Yahweh.

But the fruit of the Spirit is:

  1. love
  2. joy
  3. peace
  4. longsuffering
  5. kindness
  6. righteousness
  7. faith
  8. meekness
  9. temperance

such things are not against any Law.”

 

Galatians 5:14For truly, everything in the Law through the plan of Yahweh has been accomplished through this: YOU WILL LOVE YOUR BROTHER AS YOURSELF.

 

This was the way of the true prophets teachings shown by the righteous Priest Abel who taught that you will love your brother as yourself. This same teaching was taught by the Great Prophet, Yahshua Messiah. But the false prophets teachings was shown by a fleshly carnal man, Cain, who hated his brother in his heart, which was against the Law of Yahweh. The true prophet of Yahweh teaches the Spiritual qualities that bring forth a righteous character. The false prophets teachings bring forth the fleshly carnal man in all his degrading passions, as shown above in Galatians.

 

The true prophets of Yahweh revealed to us Yahweh’s righteousness, which is pictured as a garden, producing what is sown in it’s earth.

 

Isayah 61:11 “For as the earth brings forth its bud, and a garden causes seeds to grow, so Yahweh our Father will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all nations.”

 

What is your House of Yahweh bringing forth? What is being sown in it’s field? Who is planting in it? Who is watering it? It is Yahweh who brings forth the increase. But Yahweh’s Tree of Life only brings forth fruits of righteousness. Let’s be a part of the true prophets garden and eat from the Tree of Life.

 

WHAT IS PROPHECY?

 

Since many have tried to understand prophecy whether it is dealing with the past, present, or future, there is no doubt it is a challenging task for the true believer and servant of Yahweh. There are several words that define Prophecy. Let us look at the different words and their meanings.

 

Prophecy is mentioned many times in the scriptures and always seems to point to future times and the revealing of scenarios that affect either particular events and times for the saints of Yahweh. Daniyl was a man of Yahweh, called a true prophet, who had visions and dreams. His visions were interpreted by many to reveal a future time at the end of man’s reign here on earth. Daniyl, himself mentioned being troubled because he was not able to understand these visions. He was told that the visions that he saw were in fact, for a future time period. Let’s examine the word prophecy as written by Daniyl.

 

Daniyl 9:24 “Seventy 7657 weeks 7620 are determined 2852 upon thy people 5971 and upon thy holy 6944 city 5892, to finish 3607 the transgression 6588, and to make an end 8552 2856 of sins 2403, and to make reconciliation 3722 for iniquity 5771, and to bring in 935 everlasting 5769 righteousness 6664, and to seal up 2856 the vision 2377 and prophecy 5030, and to anoint 4886 the most 6944 Holy 6944.”

 

The word prophecy is #5030 and means: a prophet who as actuated by a divine spirit, either rebuked the conduct of kings and nations, or predicted future events. From #5012 which means: to speak by a divine power; to prophecy. It can be a true or a false prophet of Yahweh.

Another use of the word prophecy is mentioned in the book of Nehemyah.

 

Nehemyah 6:12 “And lo, I perceived that Yahweh had not sent him, but that he pronounced this prophecy against me, for Tobiyah and Sanballat had hired him.”

 

The word prophecy is #5016 and means: prophecy, prediction. It is also from the root word #5012 which means: to prophesy; under influence of divine spirit; of false prophets.

 

Prophecy could be divine inspiration from Yahweh, either to bring forth truth or lies. It could come from Yahweh through men who spoke truth, or falsehoods and lies.

In the second volume or New Testament volume of the Holy Scriptures we find the word prophecy used by the Apostles many times.

 

I Timothy 4:14 “Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the body of elders.”

 

The word prophecy is #4394 and means: a discourse emanating from divine inspiration and declaring the purposes of Yahweh, whether by reproving and admonishing the wicked, or comforting the afflicted, or revealing things hidden; esp. by foretelling future events.

 

Discourse is defined in Websters dictionary as: verbal expression as in speech or writing.

 

So we see that prophecy can be many things, to many people, depending on the circumstances, such as true or false speech or writings, someone who is divinely inspired by Yahweh, a foreteller of future events, one who rebukes authority, one who predicts and able to receive gifts from. Prophecy could be expressed in speech or in writing.

 

When trying to understand the Holy Scriptures meaning, concerning prophecy, we can have many different interpretations and different understandings regarding scripture and what it is that Yahweh is revealing to the person reading it. It depends on the person reading it, whether the spirit of Yahweh is giving them the ability to understand it or if it is just their own interpretation by their own reasoning. There is no doubt that the Holy Scriptures were written for the believers of Yahweh, the true House of Yahweh, and this book is for our learning and understanding. Anyone outside of the family of Yahweh will not understand what is written if they are not involved as a family member. This book was not written for the world to understand, nor can they understand the words written in them. This is what takes the guess work out of the scriptures concerning prophecy and brings understanding to the simple.

 

Romans 15:4 “For whatever things were written in former times were written for our learning, that we, through endurance and the comfort of the Scriptures, might have hope.”

 

II Kepha 1:20,21 “Knowing this first; that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation; For the prophecy did not come in former times by the will of man, but holy men of Yahweh spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”

 

I Corinthians 13:22 “Therefore tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe, but to those who do not believe. However, prophesying is for the believers, not for the unbelievers.”

 

So are you a believer of Yahweh? What do you believe in? There are many spirits that have gone out into the world. Some have denied the authority of the House of Yahweh, some have denied the Saviour Yahshua Messiah, some have denied their faith, some have denied their family, and some have denied themselves. A true believer of Yahweh, worships Yahweh in spirit and in truth! But many cannot accept the truth. If you are a seeker of truth, then you will fulfill the royal law, which is you shall love your brother as yourself. The Royal Law is what we strive for in being able to be called, Priestly Kings, those who seek the order of Melchizedek, the order of Messiah. This is seen in the pattern of the tabernacle, where there was only one door in which to enter to seek Yahweh. Yahshua our Messiah, was shown to be a High Priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek, which is an order of righteousness and peace.

 

Hebrews 7:17 “For he testifies: You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.”

 

The Laws of Yahweh reveal to us righteousness and peace in us when kept. This is the key to understanding Yahweh, and to be able to access the Holy Place where Yahshua Messiah dwells. When we get to this level we then have Yahshua in us! In order to understand prophecy it must line up the scriptures. In order to understand Yahshua you must line up the scriptures.

 

Proverbs 14:5 “A faithful witness will not lie, but a false witness will utter lies.”

 

Isayah 28:9-11 “Whom will He teach knowledge? Whom will He make to understand doctrine? Those who are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts! For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little and there a little.”

 

ARE YOU REQUIRED TO FOLLOW A FALSE PROPHET?

 

As a servant of Yahweh we are not above our teacher, Yahshua Messiah, nor the creator Yahweh. Yahweh’s people should give respect to the true teachers of the law and those who preach the message of Yahweh. However, we do have authority from Yahweh to correct those who are deceived, no matter what authority or position they hold.

 

Proverbs 27:5 “Open rebuke is better than concealed love.”

 

We must remember that Yahweh is not deceived and neither is His Son, Yahshua Messiah, we can trust on them. When we attain to the level of the order of Melchizadek, like Yahshua Messiah, then we too will not be deceived.

 

Yahchanan (John) 13:16 “Verily 281, verily 281, I say 3004 unto you 5213, The servant 1401 is 2076 not 3756 greater than 3187 his 846 lord 2962; neither 3761 he that is sent 652 greater than 3187 he that sent 3992 him 846.”

 

The word verily is #281 and means: firmly, faithful, of a truth; verily.

The word say is #3004 and means: to say, to speak; affirm over, maintain; to teach; to exhort, advise, to command, direct; to point out with words, intend, mean, mean to say; to call by name, to call, name; to speak out, speak of, mention.

The word you is #5213 and means: you.

The word servant is #1401 and means: a slave, bondman, man of servile condition; a slave; metaph., one who gives himself up to another's will those whose service is used by Messiah in extending and advancing his cause among men; devoted to another to the disregard of one's own interests; a servant, attendant.

The word is, is #2076 and means: he, she, it is.

The word not is #3756 and means: not.

The word greater than is #3187 and means: greater, larger, elder, stronger.

The word his is #846 and means: again; himself, herself, themselves, itself.

The word lord is #2962 and means: he to whom a person or thing belongs, about which he has power of deciding; master, lord; the possessor and disposer of a thing; the owner; one who has control of the person, the master; in the state: the sovereign, prince, chief, the Roman emperor; is a title of honour expressive of respect and reverence, with which servants greet their master;

this title is given to: Yahweh, the Messiah

The word neither is #3761 and means: but not, neither, nor, not even.

The word sent is #652 and means: a delegate, messenger, one sent forth with orders; specifically applied to the twelve apostles of Christ; in a broader sense applied to other eminent Christian teachers.

The word sent is #3992 and means: to send; to bid a thing to be carried to one; to send (thrust or insert) a thing into another. Teachers who come forward by Yahweh’s command and with his authority are said to be sent by Yahweh; as Yahchanan the Immerser, and Yahshua Messiah.

 

We see the following in this scripture being revealed to us:

 

Of a truth I am teaching and pointing out to you, I am teaching and calling you by name. The one who gives himself up to Yahweh’s will, those whose service is used by Messiah in extending and advancing Yahweh’s cause among men. He is not greater, larger, or stronger in himself, or to whom he belongs. For he is under the sovereign King, Yahshua, serving Yahweh. Neither is the one sent forth with the orders, the teachers, greater than Yahshua Messiah.

 

Yahshua is the Head over the House of Yahweh and anyone who challenges His authority, challenges the government of Yahweh and it’s Melchizadek, Priestly, order. This is an everlasting order which reveals no beginning, nor end, because it is from Yahweh and established by Yahweh. The True Prophet of Yahweh teaches true Love for Yahweh and for the brotherhood of the Priestly family of Yahweh. He teaches that you need to love your enemies also, and in doing so, you impress upon him, the true teachings of the Laws of Yahweh. He guides you to the True Prophet, Yahshua Messiah, the leader of our faith.

 

A false prophet is a false witness against the brothers and shows that he doesn’t love the family of Yahweh. Through his deceptive teachings, he breaks the Law of brotherly love, that brings unity. His false love teachings only sow discord and destroy the brotherhood of Priests. It is these teachings that Yahweh hates and despises, because He knows that this teaching will keep one from entering the Priestly Kingdom of Yahweh. We have to be spiritually wise and strong enough to distinguish the mark of a false prophet.

 

Exodus 20:16You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

Proverbs 6:19 “Seven things that Yahweh hates: A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brothers.”

Proverbs 12:17 “He that speaks truth brings forth righteousness, but a false witness deceit.”

Proverbs 14:5A faithful witness will not lie, but a false witness will utter lies.”

Proverbs 25:18A man that bears false witness against his neighbor, is a maul and a sword, and a sharp arrow.”

 

THE FALSE PROPHET IS A SON OF PERDITION

 

A Son of Yahweh must remember that the Holy Scriptures were written on the believers behalf. It is not for the unbelievers. The Scriptures were given to us by Yahweh to show us how we must enter the Kingdom of Yahweh. It gives us Knowledge into the mind of Yahweh. It is our history book, guide book, and manual for life. Today, all religions believe in the Bible as a Holy Book. Each religion chooses and picks out certain things that they like from it and many build a religious following by the laws, words, or statements written in the Holy Scriptures. The word religion can’t be found in the Scriptures but many have placed that title to any who have a faith based following.

 

The word religion is defined as:

1. a. Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe.

b. A personal or institutionalized system grounded in such belief and worship.

2. The life or condition of a person in a religious order.

3. A set of beliefs, values, and practices based on the teachings of a spiritual leader.

4. A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion.

 

We can see that religion has the meaning of basing our belief on the teachings, but also teachings of a spiritual leader. Who is your spiritual leader? Are you being taught knowledge from the tree of righteousness or from the tree of righteousness and evil?

 

Those who are called with the name of Yahweh, are given the opportunity to not fall into deception, by false prophets. In fact, let no man deceive you, as is it written:

 

II Thessalonians 2:3 "For the day of Yahweh will not come, until there comes a falling away first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition".

 

In another place, Yahshua Messiah stated:

 

Yahchanan 17:12 "While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your Name. Those whom you gave Me I have kept; and none of them are lost, except the son of perdition, so that the scripture might be fulfilled."

 

Also it is written:

 

I Timothy 6:9 "But those want to become rich will fall into temptation and a trap, and into many foolish and harmful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all evil, and there are some who, pursuing it, have strayed from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."

 

The word son is word #5207 and means: a male child; offspring of men; in a wider sense, a descendant, one of the posterity of any one.

The word perdition is word #684 and means: a destroying; a perishing, ruin, destruction (of money); of Judas the betrayer.

 

 

II Thessalonians 2:1-12 “Now we plead with you brothers, concerning the coming of our King, Yahshua Messiah, and our gathering together to Him. That you not be soon shaken in mind, nor be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as if from us, as that the day of Yahweh is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as the Almighty sits in the House of Yahweh, showing himself that he is the Mighty One. Do you not remember that when I was still with you, I told you these things? And now you know what is holding him that he might be revealed in his time. For the Mystery of Iniquity is already working: but the one restraining him will continue to restrain him, until he is taken out of the way. And then shall that wicked (the teacher departing from the Law) be revealed, whom Yahshua shall consume with the spirit of his mouth (sword or word of Yahweh), and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming. Whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause Yahweh shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

 

The false prophet or son of perdition will be here before the coming of Yahshua Messiah. We are told not waver from Yahweh’s Laws, because of this time period. We are given key points to remember about this false prophet in these verses:

 

  1. Let no man deceive you.
  2. There will be a falling away first.
  3. The Man of Sin, who is wicked, will be revealed.
  4. This Man is a son of perdition.
  5. He opposeth himself and exalts himself above every other God, that is worshiped.
  6. Shows himself to be Mighty or Great in the House of Yahweh.
  7. This is a work of Satan, who uses power, and lying wonders.
  8. He deceives by a mixture of righteousness and unrighteousness.
  9. Some will perish because they don’t love the truth.
  10. Yahweh will send strong delusion, so they can be tested to see if they will believe a lie.
  11. Those who follow this false prophet or teacher, will be damned.

 

Let’s examine some key words in these scriptures to get a better understanding of what we are being shown here about the false prophet of Yahweh.

 

The word falling is word #646 and means: a falling away; defection; apostasy. Apostasy is defined as: Abandonment of one's religious faith, a political party, one's principles, or a cause.

The word opposeth is word #480 and means: to be set over against, opposite to; to oppose, be adverse to, withstand. From #473 and #2749 which means: over against; lies in the power of the evil one; held in subjection of the devil.

The word exalteth is word #5229 and means: to lift or raise up over some thing; to lift one's self up, be exalted, be haughty; to carry one's self haughtily to, behave insolently towards one.

The word temple is word #3485 and means: used of the temple at Jerusalem; a Christian church.

The word wicked is word #459 and means: destitute of (the Mosaic) law; of the Gentiles; departing from the law, a violator of the law, lawless, wicked.

The word mouth is word #4750 and means: the mouth; since thoughts of a man's soul find verbal utterance by his mouth, the "heart" or "soul" and the mouth are distinguished; the edge of a sword.

The word power is word #1411 and means: strength power, ability; the power and influence which belong to riches and wealth; power and resources arising from numbers; power consisting in or resting upon armies, forces, hosts.

The word signs is word #4592 and means: a sign, mark, token; that by which a person or a thing is distinguished from others and is known.

The word lying is word #5579 and means: a lie; conscious and intentional falsehood; in a broad sense, whatever is not what it seems to be; of perverse, impious, deceitful precepts.

The word wonders is word #5059 and means: accordingly something so strange as to cause it to be watched or observed.

 

With these definitions in mind we can see that the Apostle Shaul was stating that:

 

The false prophet or teacher has a defection with his principles and he abandons the faith, which reveals this man of sin or son of perdition, who lifts up and raises himself up. He sits in the House of Yahweh, which is called a Christian Church, because of his turning from the Laws of Yahweh being taught to the people. He exalts himself, so that he is the savior for the people, acting as the mighty and great teacher who is above every religion and teacher. He teaches that without him there is no salvation. He is revealed by the word of Yahweh, which is a two edged sword, of his power which comes from his riches and wealth. This is a sign or mark that distinguishes him from others and is known to be true, even though his intentional falsehood is not what it seems to be, for this false prophet seems to be righteous and this strange sight is observed and watched by those who love Yahweh’s Laws. Yahweh will send this strong or effective delusion, which causes some to be led astray, in order that they may be tested, to see if they Love Yahweh or this Man of Sin! Some will believe the lies of this false prophet and be damned because they didn’t listen to the truth of Yahweh, which is revealed by his True Prophets.

 

Yahweh reveals to us in these scriptures that He does send a false prophet in these last days, before the return of His Son, Yahshua Messiah. Therefore brethren, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings of Yahshua Messiah, and let us comfort our hearts and minds, and establish every righteous word and work of Yahweh. Remember the teachings of your youth, when the law and the witness of the prophets were the teachings. This is for our learning. Know that the law is not only laid down for a righteous man, but also for the lawless and disobedient, for the unrighteous and for sinners, yes even for child molesters. Judgment is through the Law and Yahshua Messiah will judge every man and woman for their works. So stand firm in the message of the Kingdom and hold fast to the teachings of Yahshua Messiah, our King and Savior. May Yahweh bless your understanding.

 

In the Holy Scriptures we are told that many false prophets have gone out into the world. We must be on guard against false teachings. These false teachings keep the true Sons of Yahweh from entering the Holy Place of Yahweh and the Priesthood of Righteousness. Be on guard and let no man deceive you!

 

The Mark of Cain is a continuous war between brothers. This war is caused by the lack of teachings of brotherly love. The false prophet of Yahweh is made evident throughout the scriptures, by the lack of the brotherly love teachings, which is then displayed by him and his followers. The fruits of these teachings that this false prophet brings forth, are a mixture of righteousness and evil. Yes, he has the Law, but not the righteousness of Yahshua Messiah. If your House of Yahweh is a Christian Church, that has a leader who is requiring worship, who does not teach by example, the two greatest Laws by which all the Laws of Yahweh depend, then you are being led into deception.
