The apostle John gave us a very clear warning in Revelation 12:9: “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD.” (emphasis, mine) Yes, Satan is one of the guilty parties. He started with the angels and then progressed to mankind through Adam and Eve.
But, did you know that someone else is involved in deceiving the world? It is Yahweh! He gave this command to the prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 6:9-10: “And he said, Go, and tell this people, hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.”
Now, Isaiah was not deceived. He was given the truth and he was told to keep the truth from “these people.” There are those in the world to whom the truth is revealed. But there are also “these people” from whom Yahweh is keeping the truth. Which group are you in? I wish to help you decide through this article.
The Messiah, the Son of Yahweh, is the one who gave Isaiah this command. Yes, he was the Yahweh of the Old Testament. Notice what the Messiah tells us in John 5:37: “And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.” Moses and others spoke with the Son, but never the Father. The apostle Paul confirms this understanding in 1 Corinthians 10:4: “And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Messiah.”
The member of the Yahweh family who led the Israelites out of Egypt was the Son of Yahweh. The Old Testament is all about the Son, not the Father. The Father has remained in the light. (1 Timothy 6:16 ) No man has seen the Father. He has only acted through his Son. The Son of Yahweh, Yahweh of hosts, gave the command to Isaiah to keep certain people blind and deaf. As the incarnate Messiah, he taught the disciples the same truth. Let’s read about this in Matthew 13:10-16:
“And the disciples came, and said unto him, why speakest thou to them in parables? He answered and said unto them, because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, [Isaiah] which saith, by hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive. For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with your eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.”
Are you one of “these people” or one of those who are blessed to hear and see? The apostle John tells us this in John 6:44: “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.” The Father controls who understands and who does not! Listen to these additional words from Messiah found in Matthew 2:14: “For many are called, but few are chosen.” “These people” represent the many, while the chosen are the few. Which group do you wish to be part of?
If you are led to this website, and are reading this article, YOU may be one of the called. However, unless you are baptized in the name of YahwehShua, you cannot become one of the chosen. Being called is not one’s prerogative. The decision belongs to the Father.
There is so much deception in the world. How do you know what is true and what is not? All Bible translations are part of this deception. There is no Bible translation that does not omit truth or promote lies.
There are many examples to choose from. Let’s look at one found in Matthew 25:46:
“And these shall go away into everlasting [Greek, aionios, age-abiding] punishment: But the righteous into a life eternal.(aionios, age-abiding) (KJV) This verse is the only place in the Bible where you find these words together. This translation is used to support the belief in hell and eternal torture.
Let’s try another translation. This is Matthew 25:46 as found in the Emphasized Bible by Rotherham: “And [these] shall go away, into [age-abiding] correction. But [the righteous] into [age-abiding] life.
Here is how the Concordant Literal New Testament translates this verse: “And these shall be coming away into chastening eonian, yet the just into life eonian.”
Here is the Emphatic Diaglott: “And these shall go forth to the aionian cutting off; but the righteous to aionian life.”
These translations (and there are more) are based on the same Greek words as the King James version. While the KJV uses everlasting and eternal to translate the Greek words, these English words do not come close to being accurate.
The Greek noun, aion (Strong’s 165), has always meant indeterminate time. The adjective is aionios, Strong’s 166. Aion can be as short as three days and three nights. Consider the book of Jonah 2:2, 6 where you will find the Hebrew word, olam, Strong’s 5769, translated in the Greek Old Testament as aion. The KJV has it wrong here as well. This word has been translated in many ways, including forever and eternal. Rotherham uses age-abiding for olam. An age or eon can also refer to the length of a man’s life. (Exodus 21:6)
When you read the other articles on this website you will learn more about the other lies and deceptions found in the translations. You should not base your spiritual future on Bible translations, without looking into the original languages, Hebrew and Greek. A Strong’s Concordance is a necessary reference.
A major lie easily discovered in the Old Testament is the false name of our Creator, LORD. The Hebrew reads Yahweh, yod, hey, waw, hey, also known as the Tetragrammaton. The Hebrew word translated as God is also a lie. The Hebrew word is Elohim, Strong’s 430. Elohim is a collective noun meaning, “mighty ones.” This refers to the members of the Yahweh family, the Father and the Son. There is no trinity, which is another lie!
We are all born with a carnal mind. The apostle Paul alerts us to the deficiency of the carnal mind in Romans 8:7: “Because the carnal mind is enmity against Elohim: [not god]for it is not subject to the law of Yahweh, neither indeed can be.” We begin this life without the ability to connect with Yahweh. This connection can only be made if you are called!
How are we able to make a connection with Yahweh? Paul offers this insight in Romans 8:9:
“Now if any man have not the Spirit of Messiah, he is none of his.” How are we able to obtain the Spirit that Paul is telling us about? Paul reveals the answer in 2 Corinthians 1:20-22: “For all the promises of Elohim in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of Yahweh by us. Now he which stablisheth us with you in the Messiah, and hath anointed us is Elohim: Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.” What we need to make that connection comes from the Father. Messiah promised this to the disciples and told them to be in Jerusalem on Pentecost. That was when the connection was initiated. That connection has been available since Pentecost and continues to be available until the end of this age.
On that Pentecost the disciples and thousands of others were given the Spirit necessary to make a connection to Yahweh. The Spirit of the Father was freely given and along with that Spirit is the earnest of the Son’s Spirit. The Son’s Spirit is not given in total, but must develop or mature. If the Son’s Spirit is mature at the time of our death, we will be resurrected when the Messiah returns.
In Galatians 4:19, Paul reveals a mystery to us: “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again UNTIL MESSIAH BE FORMED IN YOU.” (emphasis, mine) Paul describes what is going on spiritually inside each person baptized in YAHWEHSHUA. The down payment of Spirit given by the Father is being formed gradually, over time, into a duplicate of Messiah. This is why John tells us in 1 John 3:2 that we, “shall be like him.”
In Acts 2:38, we find Peter’s response to men who asked, “What shall we do?” This may be a question that you yourself may have: “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of________________ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” I have left the name which Peter gave blank because the correct name is very important as we learn in Acts 4: 12: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” We must get this name right in order to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The name you find in ALL translations is the wrong name. This is a very critical understanding. This is most worthy of study, prayer, and persistently petitioning Yahweh to reveal HIS truth to you.
Baptism is the only way you get the Spirit that allows you to make a connection to the Father, and therefore the Son. If we have a connection to the Son, we will also have a connection to the Father. (1 John 2:23)
The name of the Son that Peter told us to use when baptized is very important. Without the correct name, your baptism is worthless. We have articles on what the name of baptism must be. That name is not Jesus, Yahshua, Yeshua, or any other name you may read about. The name of inheritance is the true name for baptism. (Hebrews 1:4)
Why did Messiah need to inherit a new name? The name that was given to him following his birth was under the old covenant. That name, however, was revealed to Joseph in a dream before Messiah was born. (Matthew 2:21) According to Galatians 4:4, Messiah was born under the law and had to follow that law until his death. According to Deuteronomy 29:20, whenever a man died in sin, his name was to be blotted out. By becoming a curse for us (Galatians 3:13) and taking upon himself all the sin of mankind (1 John 1:7), his birth name was blotted out, as required in Deuteronomy 29:20.
Once the birth name was defiled and blotted out according to the law, what was the name of salvation to be? It is that name that Peter would reveal in his words quoted in Acts 2: 38. According to Hebrews 1:4, it was a more excellent name. What would that more excellent name be? The answer is found in Psalms 148:13: “Let them praise the name of Yahweh: for his name alone is excellent.” This important revelation is recorded again in Psalms 8:1: “Oh Yahweh our Sovereign, how excellent is thy name in all the earth.”
Yes, the inherited name is Yahweh. This was not a new understanding, as the prophet Joel had proclaimed it in Joel 2:38. “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of Yahweh shall be delivered: For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as Yahweh hath said, and in the remnant whom Yahweh shall call.” In addition to this, the Son, Yahweh of the Old Testament, proclaims this in Isaiah 43:3: “For I am Yahweh, thy Elohim, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour.” In this Scripture, the Yahweh of the Old Testament, the Son of Father Yahweh, the one who was to become the Messiah incarnate, gives us a clue about his yet to be inherited name. His name is the name of the Father and the Son, the same name on the foreheads of the firstfruits in Revelation 14:1, YAHWEHSHUA.
The Yahweh, the Son, of the Old Testament was known by a variety of names. Each involved the family name, Yahweh, combined with an attribute that described his role at that time. Some examples are Yahweh-Yireh, (Genesis 22:14) Yahweh Ropheka, (Exodus 15:26) or Yahweh Sabaoth. (1 Samuel 1:3) Please refer to the Companion Bible by Bullinger, appendix four, for additional information.
In Luke 11:52, Messiah had chastised the Pharisees for taking away the key of knowledge. That problem still exists today. Except today it is the name of both the Father and Son that has been taken away. Without knowledge of that name, salvation is not available through baptism. This is one reason why such a small number are firstfruits. In Revelation 14:1, we learn that 144,000 are resurrected when Messiah returns. The rest of mankind will not be resurrected until after the 1,000 years or the last great day. (Revelation 20:5) There is only one name of salvation, YAHWEHSHUA. Only a few will be called to know that name, and even fewer will respond to the invitation.
One can pray, study, and follow every commandment they can think of, but without baptism in the name of YahwehShua, your carnal mind is still at enmity with Yahweh. Only the Spirit of Messiah can open your mind to the truth of the Scriptures. Do not be deceived. There is only one way. Messiah alerts us to this truth in John 14:6: “ I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me.”
This is why we are told in Revelation 7 and 14 about the 144,000 firstfruits. Yahweh wants us to know that while many are called, only a few will be chosen. As scripture indicates, narrow is the way. (Matthew 7:14) The good news is that all mankind will be resurrected and eventually have a spirit body in the new heavens and earth. Not one human being is lost. There is no hell, no eternal punishment, no eternal death, but there is the hope that Yahweh gives us through his Son, YAHWEHSHUA.
All mankind has been born with a birth defect. Each carnal mind is at enmity with Yahweh. (Romans 8: 7) Each human being begins life with no connection to Yahweh. The only prescription for healing this defect is baptism in the name of YAHWEHSHUA. This baptism must be by immersion and be witnessed by an elder in the Ecclesia of YAHWEHSHUA. Following immersion, you must have hands laid upon you by that elder.This is the only Scriptural formula acceptable to Yahweh that will create a connection to Yahweh.
Please read the articles on this website, study the Scriptures and pray to YAHWEH for his truth. We are here for those being called by Yahweh. If you would like to learn more, please contact us.
