  We recently received this letter from an imprisoned Muslim. It reads, “Brother, I was taking your Bible course by mail, but I turned my back on Elohim and began to study Islam again. I ended up jumping another believer in Yahshua. I am an African-American. This is the fourth time I have been to prison. I have a problem breaking away from Islam. I have asked Yahweh in Yahshua’s name to forgive me for jumping another believer in Yahshua. The devil is at war against me, trying to cause me to be a crusader in my mind for Islam. What I need to know is where Islam came from; who is Allah? Maybe if you can help me understand more about Yahshua from the Bible, it will help me get a good understanding.”

  Pray that I will not go back to Islam. Ask Elohim to give me an understanding about Islam so I can break away from it and follow Yahshua. I will be looking to hear from you soon. I love you in Yahshua’s name.”

  ANSWER: My dear Muslim brother, I must confess that I have never studied the Koran, nor much about Islam. But I have continually studied the Scriptures inspired by Yahweh, therefore, if there are any writings that promote another faith, I give them no credence because Yahweh is my Elohim and I don’t believe that there is any place in the Koran, nor any other writings (such as the Sanskrit, Buddhist writings, Shinto writings, etc.) that declare, Yahweh came unto me, or the Word of Yahweh came unto me, or the Angel of Yahweh came unto me except the Hebrew writings.

  The name of salvation is Yahweh. This is revealed in Joel 2:32; Acts 2:21; & Ro. 10:13. The common Hebrew terms applied to Yahweh in the Scriptures that come even close to Allah are El, Eloah, and Elohim. But these are common nouns to describe who or what He is, just like we have the terms man, men, mankind, etc. for ourselves. You are a man, I am a man, we are men, mankind, but we have a personal name to distinguish us from each other. Yahweh is the Creator’s personal name that He gave to Moses and to us. He is never referred to in the Scriptures as Allah.

  Here is what Yahweh proclaims, “8But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy Elohim (NOTE: He doesn’t say Allah): I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. 11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. 2 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. 13 For I Yahweh thy Elohim will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. 14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith Yahweh, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel,” Isa. 41:8-14.

  Furthermore, Yahweh is an Elohim of truth, His word is truth and He declares to Israel, “For I am Yahweh, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed,” Mal. 3:6.

  Now, Mohammed, who never admits to knowing Yahweh, says that He has changed and embraced the sons of Ishmael and rejected Israel. We know that there was one who came to the first woman Eve (Chavah) and disputed with the words of Yahweh. Eve later admitted that this one who came to her, the serpent, had beguiled (deceived) her. Anyone who comes to you and tells you that Yahweh has rejected Israel and chosen someone else is disputing the very words of truth that Yahweh, Himself, spoke.

  Do you see what is in store for Islam in these Scriptures? Yahweh says that those who are incensed against Israel will be ashamed, and confounded and become as nothing. Those who contend and war with them will become as nothing and a thing of nought. These are words that every Muslim needs to hear. The only way that you can receive salvation is through the very One that Mohammed denied, that is Yahshua the Messiah. The only way that you can come into a covenant relationship with Yahweh is to become a Hebrew through Yahshua the Messiah, because the New Covenant that Yahweh promises to make is made only with the houses of Israel and Judah (Jer. 31:31-34; Heb. 8:7-13).

  If this doesn’t help you to flee from Islam into the arms of our awesome and marvelous Elohim Yahweh and His Beloved Son Yahshua the Messiah, then I don’t know what else to do for you or any of the other Muslims.

  There is only one Elohim, that is Yahweh, and Yahshua the Messiah is His Son and Prophet!!!!!!!   JH

The book of Genesis describes the beginning of all things as we know them. Genesis has to do with being generated, begun, put in motion, brought forth, etc. Genesis declares that the heavens and earth were originally created, generated, brought forth by Elohim. Elohim made man in His own image and set him as sovereign over the earth. What follows throughout Scripture is the inability of man, when left to himself, to be faithful in serving the commands and edicts of his very own Creator. This treatise will reveal how a very important statement made at the beginning, the genesis, has been brought around full circle in the end of days, for those who desire understanding.

By Jerry Healan

  Scripture reveals that man (Adam) was made on the sixth day of creation being made the sovereign, the master over the earth, “And Elohim said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So Elohim created man in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he him; male and female created he them. And Elohim blessed them, and Elohim said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth…And Elohim saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day,” Gen. 1:26-28, 31.

  Did you know that the primary element of which we are made is carbon? Did you know that the atomic number for carbon is six (6)? Furthermore the Scriptural number for man has always been understood to be six! As a matter of fact, the book of Revelation chapter 13 reveals that the number of the end-time beast is 666!

  We learn through the five senses, 1) seeing, 2) hearing, 3) smelling, 4) tasting and 5) feeling. But we need a sixth component if we are able to put the knowledge of these five senses together. That sixth component is the “spirit (breath) in man.” “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?” 1 Cor. 2:11 (first part).

  The main Hebrew word for spirit is ruach. The main Greek word for spirit is pneuma. Both words, ruach and pneuma are also translated as breath. The Hebrew word ruach is also translated as air. We breathe (ruach) the air (ruach), which gives us life. Thus, the natural man is once again labeled with the number six (6). We learn through the five (5) senses and the sixth (6 th) component that we utilize to not only live, but amalgamate knowledge through the five senses is breath, air, spirit (ruach/pneuma). This imparts to us the knowledge of the natural, carnal man.


  Yahweh uses various plays on words in the Hebrew Scriptures that we simply don’t see in the English language. When we read, “And Elohim said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…,” (Gen. 1:26), there are many subtle messages that can be found in just these few words.

  One of those messages is about the word “man,” which in the Hebrew language, is Adam. Adam was made of the dust of the ground. The Hebrew word for “ground” is adamah! The Hebrew characters for Adam are mda (a = a; d = d; m = m). The Hebrew characters for ground are hmda (a = a; d = d; m = m; h = h).

  The Hebrew characters for man (Adam/mda) tell another story, which confirms the truth about Adam and Eve being the first two humans created to begin the human race. The A/a (aleph) in the word Adam is the very first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It has to do with the number one (1) and therefore, indicates that Adam is the one and only first man. The second letter d/d (dalet) is a picture word for “door.” The third letter m/m (mim) is a picture for water. We learn from John 7:37-39 that water is type of the spirit, “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Yahshua stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit was not yet given; because that Yahshua was not yet glorified.)”

  While water in this scenario presented by Yahshua has to do in typology with the Holy Spirit, the situation is that water can also symbolize the spirit, breath in/of man. In the book of Revelation, John is shown the judgment of the whore who sits upon many waters. This whore sits upon many false spirits, but also upon the sea of humanity.

  Once again, the Hebrew word for “spirit” is ruach, which can also be translated as “breath.” The Greek word for “spirit is pneuma, which can also be translated as “breath.” Thus, in the name Adam, we find that he is the first (a) man, the door (d) through which all humanity comes into being, receiving the breath/spirit (m) of physical, fleshly, carnal life.

  Man is made from the dust of the “ground.” Since the Hebrew word for “ground” is adamah (hmda), Yahweh utilized a play on words in the Hebrew language. The final letter in ground (hmda) is the Hebrew letter hei (h). It tenders the idea of “lo”, or “behold.” Sometimes the man is referred to as HaAdam (mdah). Thus we would obtain, Behold the man (Adam/mda) from the ground (adamah/hmda)! Yes, absolutely! Behold the wondrous power and works that Yahweh Elohim has the ability to bring forth!

  Yahweh formed man (adam) from the dust (aphar) of the ground (adamah). The Hebrew word for “formed” is yatsar. The definition for yatsar is to mould into a form; especially as a potter. It has to do with squeezing something into shape! What a marvelous potter is Yahweh, as the Prophet Isaiah declared, “But now, Yahweh, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter (yatsar); and we all are the work of thy hand,” 64:8.


  Another amazing thing that is no doubt designed by Yahweh is the Hebrew word for blood. The word is dam (md), the last two letters in the name of Adam (mda). The Scriptures decree that the life of all flesh is in the blood, “And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood (md); I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people. For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood. And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust. For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off,” Lev. 17:10-14.

  The Hebrew word for “life” in this instance is nephesh. Nephesh is another interesting combination of words, but when we come to understand the underlying truth of the situation, then more marvels are revealed. The Scriptures reveal, “And Yahweh Elohim formed (yatsar) man (adam) of the dust (aphar) of the ground (adamah), and breathed (naphach) into his nostrils (aph) the breath (neshemah) of life; and man became a living soul (nephesh),” Gen. 2:7. (Note: neshemah is another Hebrew word for breath.)

  Now look at the play on words and the combinations as a result. Yahweh breathed (naphach) into his nostrils (aph). Through the nostrils (aph) we breathe (naphach) our breath (neshamah), which makes us a living soul (nephesh). Nephesh is a combination of naphach, aph, and neshemah!

  Oxygen, breath, spirit, is carried to the body via the red blood cells, which look like the number eight laying on its side ∞. Interestingly, in mathematics, the same symbol is utilized for infinity, but that’s another story. Amazingly, the atomic number for oxygen is eight (8)! Isn’t it interesting that Yahweh created the man, put blood in his veins which carries the life giving oxygen throughout his body and the atomic number for oxygen would be discovered to be eight and the blood cells that deliver the oxygen to the body would look like the number eight?! Is this by design? This author believes so, which reveals the most wondrous and awesome intellect that can ever be. The blood is oxygenated in the lungs, which then flows to the heart so it can first be pumped to the brain, the body’s control center. This is also the center of our feelings, emotions, thoughts, etc. The blood then flows to the rest of the body with the remaining oxygen and foodstuffs in order to provide breath, oxygen and food for the body’s cellular structure. It is, we are, a most marvelous mechanism. There is no way that the ignorance of evolution could have brought forth such a marvelous creation! Those who embrace an original explosion with subsequent evolutionary development are purposely blinded and even though they may be some of the most brilliant minds on earth, the fact of the matter is that they are willingly ignorant of the true facts.

  Yahweh forbids us to eat or drink blood because the life (nephesh) of the flesh is in the blood. Yahweh forbids certain things, not because He doesn’t want us to enjoy life, but because He does want us to enjoy life. The problem is that man casts Yahweh’s word behind and goes out to seek his own pleasure and desires, which are not in league with what Yahweh wants for us.

  This leads us to understand more concerning the creation of Adam, one man, through whom we all, as from one blood, issue forth. The Apostle Paul declared to the men of Athens, “Yahweh that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Sovereign of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek Yahweh, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of Elohim, we ought not to think that the headship is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance Yahweh winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead,” Acts 17:24-31.

  The Hebrew, once again, for blood is md (dam). The Hebrew term for “one” is echad (dCa), but also the Hebrew letter for “one” is the aleph (a). The one man from whom all peoples have issued is the first man Adam (mda). Notice again that the Hebrew word for ground is adamah (hmda) and the Hebrew word for “the man” is ha-adam mdah. The hei is moved from the end of the letters in ground to the beginning in “the man.”

  The breath, the oxygen, the air, the spirit that we breathe imparts life to us so that we can accumulate the knowledge through the five senses. This makes us a six component being.


  The first five books of the Bible are called the Torah. In the Torah there are found commandments, statutes, judgments and teachings, which are good for us to read, learn and inculcate into our lives.

  Here is another interesting concept that is inculcated into the Torah that few people understand. The very first letter of the Scriptures is the beit (b/b). It is the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet and is also utilized for the number two. It is an hieroglyphic for a house.

  The very last letter of the Torah is the letter lamed (l/l). It also represents the number thirty (30). It is an hieroglyphic of a shepherd’s staff or cattle goad. Amazingly, the word lamed comes from the Hebrew word lamad, which has to do with learning, teaching and purpose. But what is even more amazing is that the Hebrew word for “heart” is leb (bl).

  If we will set our heart (bl) upon Yahweh’s word, then we will learn and be taught of the Creator and His purpose for the creation. The study of the Torah will bring us to Yahshua the Messiah, Who is the true Shepherd, possessing the Shepherd’s staff (l). The lamed (l) in the Paleo Hebrew (l) is a closer representative of the shepherd’s staff. Yahshua, the Shepherd, will lead us to the house (beit/b) of Yahweh.

  However, if we turn our heart away from Yahweh and His marvelous word, then we will give ourselves to another master. That master is Bel/Baal (lb). That’s right folks, if we will love Yahweh with all our heart (bl), then we will learn and be taught the purpose of life itself. We will have a faith and confidence, a peace that will give us strength and courage. But if we refuse and cast Yahweh’s word behind hating the wisdom, knowledge and understanding contained therein, then we will give ourselves over to another master (Bel/Baal/lb) who is the sovereign of the house of idolatry, rebellion, fear, death and destruction. Isn’t it interesting that the word Bel/Baal (lb) is a reversal of the word heart (bl)? There are messages such as these revealed throughout the Scriptures, which reveal the awesome mind and spirit that inspired it all to be written and presented to us for our instruction and use. He is worthy of our praise, honor and love with the whole heart. The truth of the matter is that the Hebrew language is the language of revelation. When the Scriptures are converted into other languages without the Hebrew as an interlinear, then the wondrous truths such as these are lost. Once this is done, it is easy to deceive and mislead people into paths that are not good. It’s too bad that the overall preponderance of mankind casts His word behind or misuses and abuses it.


  There are certain things in the beginning stages of the book of Genesis that simply are not focused on, nor understood by the overall majority of the people. Yahweh had made the man Adam from the dust of the ground and placed him into the Garden of Eden to dress and keep it. Two trees were planted in the midst of the garden, the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen. 2:9). Yahweh cautioned the man, “And Yahweh Elohim commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die,” Gen. 2:16-17.

  Interestingly, “of it” and “thereof” are both translated from the same Hebrew word wnmm (memenu). It is also interesting that if you check with the concordances, etc., this word is not introduced. One has to possess an Interlinear Bible, which has the Hebrew language of the Old Testament and the Greek of the New Testament with the corresponding English if he is going to discover this word. If we trace this Hebrew word as it is utilized in chapter three we will learn something that has been hidden and misunderstood from the beginning (at least by the minds of natural men).

  Let us trace the places wherein this word is utilized is Gen. 3:1-11, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which Yahweh Elohim had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath Elohim said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim hath said, Ye shall not eat of it (wnmm/memenu), neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For Elohim doth know that in the day ye eat thereof (wnmm/memenu), then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof (wnmm/memenu), and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of Yahweh Elohim walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh Elohim amongst the trees of the garden. And Yahweh Elohim called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of (wnmm/memenu) the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?”

  Notice that this word memenu is only utilized when speaking of eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It is never utilized when speaking of eating from the other trees of the garden.

  The next verse wherein memenu is utilized is Gen. 3:17, “And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it (wnmm/memenu): cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life.”

  Finally, we come to verse 22, “And Yahweh Elohim said, Behold, the man is become as one of us (wnmm/memenu), to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.”

  Instead of having been translated as “…become as one of us…” it should have been translated as “…become as one from it…” (the tree). Yahweh is righteous and lives forever. The man, because of his action of eating from the tree, came under the penalty of death. His knowledge was now the knowledge of good and evil, a mixture that brings pain, grief, suffering, corruption, sin and death. Man was now corruptible and mortal, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned…,” Ro. 5:12.


  Man, Adam, was made in the image of Elohim, “And Elohim said, Let us make man (Adam) in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So Elohim created man (Adam) in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he him; male and female created he them,” Gen. 1:26-27.

  The Hebrew word for “image” is tselem. It is defined as; from an unused root meaning to shade; a phantom, i.e. (figuratively) illusion, resemblance; hence, a representative figure, especially an idol (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance).

  Man, Adam, was created as a representative figure, a resemblance of Elohim. As long as Adam and Eve continued in the covenant that Yahweh made with them, there was no problem. But the serpent came into the picture and deceived Eve to think that they weren’t all that they could be. He asked her, “Yea, hath Elohim said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Gen. 3:1. The woman responded, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die,” vv. 2-3. The serpent replied, “Ye shall not surely die: For Elohim doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil,” vv. 4-5.

  The serpent, who is Satan the devil, is the father of lies and also a murderer (Jn. 8:44). He deceived Eve into partaking of something that was forbidden by Yahweh. But what happened is that Adam and Eve, the proto-type of all mankind ate of the forbidden fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which in effect, turned them away from the resemblance of the righteous Elohim who made them and caused them to be filled with the knowledge of good and evil. They partook of the tree of death and brought death not only upon themselves, but all of their descendants who would follow them, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned,” Ro. 5:12.

  The Psalmist declared, “Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them,” Psa. 39:6.

  “Vain shew” is translated from tselem! Every man (descendant of Adam) walks in a tselem, a shade, a shadow, an illusion, an idolatrous image (whether his own, or a false pagan deity)! In other words, man has made his own elohim in the images that pleases himself. He has also made himself as elohim. That is the reality of the world in which we live today! Have you ever heard of the encouragement, “Worship at the church of YOUR CHOICE?” Have you heard of evolution? Have you heard of humanism, socialism, communism and capitalism? These are all systems and ideologies that cause man to establish himself as elohim.


  After Adam and Eve took of the forbidden fruit, Yahweh pronounced curses upon each one; the serpent for his deception, the man and woman because they disobeyed the commandment of Yahweh. Yahweh cursed the serpent thusly, “And Yahweh Elohim said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust (aphar) shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel,” Gen. 3:14-15.

  He proclaimed to Adam, “And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust (aphar) thou art, and unto dust (aphar) shalt thou return,” Gen. 3:17-19.

  So very, very few people have understood the nature of Yahweh’s curses pronounced here. Yahweh assigned man, Adam and his descendants, to be the serpent’s food!

  Scripture declares that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of Elohim, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of Elohim,” Ro. 3:23. “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come,” Ro. 5:12-14.

  The power of the serpent is to cause all of Adam’s descendants to sin, falling short of the glory of Elohim and to enter into the grave wherein all return to dust.

  It is stated in the book of Psalms, “Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon Yahweh?” 14:4.

  This same statement is made elsewhere, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no Elohim. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. Elohim looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek Elohim. Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon Elohim,” Psa. 53:1-4.

  Yahweh indicts the heads of Israel, “And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment? Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones; Who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron,” Mic. 3:1-3.

  The Prophet Zephaniah is moved to proclaim, “Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city! She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in Yahweh; she drew not near to her Elohim. Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow. Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law,” Zeph. 3:1-4.

  Do you understand what is going on here? The serpent Satan eats the flesh of man. Even Yahweh’s own people Israel and Judah are under this power that he has. Not only do the enemies of Yahweh’s people eat them like bread, but their own leaders, their princes, rulers, priests and spiritual leaders have their part in it!

  Are you beginning to understand that in today’s world, the enemies of our people are eating up our industries and factories? Are you beginning to understand why we have become the greatest debtor nation to the rest of the world? Are you beginning to understand why our leaders make promises that they absolutely will not keep, just to get elected? Are you beginning to understand why our own leaders are so willing to sell their own people out to the highest bidder? Are you beginning to understand why the judgment from the courts of the land are so corrupted that true justice is being perverted? Are you beginning to understand how the religions, the ministers, the churches, twist the truth of Yahweh and His word into lies causing the people to practice idolatrous pagan practices?


  Man, who is born of woman, comes into this world with the spirit (breath/ruach/pneuma) of Adam. The spirit (breath) of man (Adam) knows and imparts the things, the knowledge of man, but it cannot understand the things of the Spirit of Yahweh, “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of Yahweh knoweth no man, but the Spirit of Yahweh,” 1 Cor. 2:11.

  The prophets (preachers) and priests have done violence to the law of Yahweh (Zeph. 3:4). The workers of iniquity have no knowledge of Yahweh Elohim (Psa. 14:4; 53:4). Yahweh’s sanctuary has been polluted by them (Zeph. 3:4). How and why? Because they teach that Yahweh’s law is done away. They teach a “mystery of iniquity.” What is iniquity? Its primary definition would be “lawlessness.” In other words, a mysterious gospel that teaches that the law is done away so that the people can look righteous, but continue in sin.

  What is sin? “Sin is the transgression of the law,” 1 Jn. 3:4. If the law is done away, then there is no more sin. If there is no more sin, then there is no more need of a Savior to cleanse us from our sins.

  The truth of the matter is Yahweh’s law, His commandments, are the real morality. If we lived by His Ten Commandments, then we would never be taken away and dedicated to another Elohim. We would know Yahweh. We would know His name. We would never utilize excuses for the use of other names and titles as replacements for His name. That is the spirit and intent of the first commandment, to know Who Yahweh is, by knowing His name and forbidding the introduction of other names and therefore other deities into one’s worship.

  The second commandment has to do with worship. Man is physical and desires physical representatives for spiritual things. Yahweh is Spirit and wants us to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. We can’t make a physical representative of He Who is invisible or hidden from our eyes. Any physical representative, not only of graven images, but of pictures, and artwork will never portray the true realities of Yahweh nor Yahshua.

  The third commandment has to do with taking His name in vain. “Vain” has to do with that which is empty, useless, purposeless, destructive. His name is also not to be utilized for idolatrous purposes. In other words, we are to worship Him as He commands, not in the manner that “seems right to a man” (Prov. 14:12, 16:25).

  But we are also not to make light of His name to the point of decreeing that it doesn’t make any difference what or who we call Him (after all, He knows what we mean is the excuse). His name is to be considered to be most valuable to His people. His people are to treasure His name and delight in it.

  We are to worship Him every day forever and ever, but also in accordance with His seventh day rest or Sabbath command instituted in Genesis chapters one and two and repeated for clarity in the Ten Commandments as well as elsewhere.

  We are to honor our father and mother, not to kill or murder, steal, bear false witness nor covet anything that belongs to others.

  Just think what a world we would have if these commandments were obeyed. Marriages would be greatly blessed, children obedient and happy. There would be peace and safety, no murderers lurking anywhere. There would be no burglars, thieves, or robbers, our possessions would be safe. There would be no lies, only truth would prevail. We can only dream of such a world today, but it will be reality in the soon coming kingdom of heaven.


  Our blood along with our DNA works as a receptor or receiver. This couldn’t have been understood in ages past as readily as in today’s world. The air is filled with radio waves, television waves, microwaves, radar waves, etc., etc. Radios, televisions, cell phones, radar, etc., have been developed to receive those signals from the air. Have you ever been thinking of a song and a person next to you breaks out singing, humming or whistling that same song? Have you ever been with someone only to find that you are both thinking almost the same thoughts?

  The serpent Satan has the ability to broadcast in moods, attitudes, thoughts, impulses, etc. He is the prince of the power of the air, “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others,” Eph. 2:1-3.

  Satan is the SPIRIT (ruach/pheuma) of disobedience! He is the prince of the power of the air (ruach)! He is the god of this world, “Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of Yahweh deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of Yahweh. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of the Messiah, who is the image of Elohim, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but the Messiah Yahshua the Sovereign; and ourselves your servants for Yahshua' sake. For Yahweh, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of Elohim in the face of Yahshua the Messiah. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of Yahweh, and not of us,” 2 Cor. 4:1-7.

  This is something that we must understand! Man is labeled with the number six. He was made on the sixth day. He is made primarily out of carbon, which possesses the atomic number six. He utilizes six components in order to understand and know the things of a man. Six falls short of completion! If we are to understand spiritual things; if we are to understand the things of Yahweh, then we must be given His Spirit as a possession, which adds a seventh component to us. As the Apostle Paul decrees, “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of Yahweh knoweth no man, but the Spirit of Yahweh. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of Yahweh; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of Elohim. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of Yahweh: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned,” 1 Cor. 2:11-14.

  As we breathe the air that is charged by the prince of the power of the air, his spirit, thoughts, impulses, attitudes, desires, etc., are received into the fleshly mind of the natural, carnal man.


  The Apostle Paul revealed that there is a “law of sin” in the flesh, “For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of Yahweh after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank Yahweh through Yahshua the Messiah our Sovereign. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of Yahweh; but with the flesh the law of sin,” Ro. 7:14-25.

  Paul adds, “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would,” Gal. 5:16-17.

  Furthermore, Paul reveals that the natural carnal minded man (person) simply can’t be obedient to the law and can’t please Yahweh, “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against Yahweh: for it is not subject to the law of Yahweh, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please Yahweh. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of Yahweh dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of the Messiah, he is none of his,” Ro. 8:5-9.

  He advises Timothy, “And the servant of the Sovereign must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if Yahweh peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will,” 2 Tim. 2:24-26.

  Peter also warns, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world,” 1 Pet. 5:8-9.

  Understand this, the serpent Satan the devil was given power over all mankind. Only those who have been called out of this world and been given to Yahshua, receiving His Spirit, belong to Him. No matter how good and righteous a person may appear, if that righteousness is not coming from the Spirit of Yahweh, which is given through Yahshua the Messiah, then all of that person’s righteousnesses are as filthy rags, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities,” Isa. 64:6-7.

  Jeremiah reveals, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jer. 17:9. Yes, who can know this? Our hearts are from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Our heart has a tendency to cause us to trust in ourselves above all, even above Yahweh Himself. As the old saying goes concerning the man and woman sitting on the porch. The man turns to his wife and says, “Martha, I have determined that there are only two people in this world in their right minds. That is you and me, and sometimes I wonder about you.”

  Yahshua declared (speaking of eating with unwashed hands), “Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man,” Mt. 15:17-20.

  So many become so worried about what goes into the mouth (such as unclean foods). This is not to say that we shouldn’t observe Yahweh’s command concerning the law of clean and unclean foods, but the problem is that we begin to focus on the physical much more than the spiritual. We have a tendency to make the eating of unclean foods of more importance than that which is in the heart of man. It is that which is in the heart, proceeding from it that defiles a person. We must understand our nature. The natural man walks in a vain show. The natural man walks in idolatry. The natural man exalts himself more than his Creator and more than his neighbor. The natural man is his own elohim. The natural man is designated to be the serpent’s food. But the serpent isn’t satisfied with this. He especially directs his attention toward those who belong to Yahshua the Messiah. He wants to roar over them like a lion that has made its kill.

  I really like and appreciate your teachings. You search in-depth. I am sort of in the middle of the controversy over the question of the cross versus the stake. Elder P... V…. was my Messianic VIC at the Farmington, Mo. Prison camp this summer. However, I do agree with you. I strongly believe the cross is correct. I will enclose a copy of a page from Philo where he mentions crucified and crosses. I do not believe they inserted the upright in the ground after the prisoners arrived. However, He carried something—Jn. 19:17. You wrote of Josephus’ account in your Jan.-Mar. 2010 issue. Who would know better than Philo and Josephus?

  (Philo excerpt: “I have known instances before now of men who had been crucified when this festival and holiday was at hand, being taken down and given up to their relations, in order to receive the honours of sepulture, and to enjoy such observances as are due to the dead; for it used to be considered, that even the dead ought to derive some enjoyment from the natal festival of a good emperor, and also that the sacred character of the festival ought to be regarded. (84) But this man did not order men who had already perished on crosses to be taken down, but he commanded living men to be crucified, men to whom the very time itself gave, if not entire forgiveness, still, at all events, a brief and temporary respite from punishment; and he did this after they had been beaten by scourging in the middle of the theatre; and after he had tortured them with fire and sword; (85) and the spectacle of their sufferings was divided; for the first part of the exhibition lasted from the morning ot the third or fourth hour, in which the Jews were scourged, were hung up, were tortured on the wheel, were condemned, and were dragged to execution through the middle of the orchestra; and after this beautiful exhibition came the dancers and the buffoons, and the flute-players, and all the other diversions of the theatrical contests.” end of excerpt: Book, Flaccus, p. 732.)


    I thank Yahweh for revealing Himself to me by His name. I thank Yahshua for the things He has done in that name. I thank the Holy Spirit for giving me the understanding, knowledge, and wisdom of that great name. Though I have little, that little I wish to give to others. May the name of Yahweh be magnified and that knowledge, wisdom and most of all, understanding of the great powerful name of Yahweh be obtained by His Holy Spirit in the name of Yahshua.

  I’ve been told that I’m stuck on the name, and that I should move on to living the good life. The name brings about too much division and keeps others from getting a message. I thought maybe this is true. Maybe I should move on, live a good life, and let others get a message and hope they get the name later, because the name brings too much division. But, as I thought about it, I realized, I can’t live a good life outside of the Name Yahweh, outside the blood of Yahshua. I realized that by those names, Yahweh and Yahshua, I must stand daily, live daily. A message can not be given without the name in hope that it’s gotten later. The name must be the first thing gotten in order to get the message. So, I thought about how do I get people to understand the importance of the names Yahweh and Yahshua. Thinking about that I realized I can’t get them to understand. It has to be Yahweh. Because it is Yahweh Who gives understanding, and if He decides to use me to give that understanding, it will be His doing, not mine, HalleluYah!!!!

  This is how Yahweh decided to use me in spreading understanding of His name. All glory given to Whom it is due, Yahweh! I recently came into a great book. A book I really wanted, and believe all true believers should have: “The Word of Yahweh.” Though it pretty much reads the same as the Bible, it is so different. The understanding it gives by simply putting back what was taken out is amazing. I’m able to use its concordance to find Scriptures that talk specifically about His name. In doing that I’m able ot give the next person understanding about His name. I’m able to move on, live the good life, and give a message. The true message, the message of Yahweh and Yahshua. Knowing the person who received the message also and foremost received the who it is about and from. Yahweh and Yahshua. HalleluYah!!!

    A friend of mine let me read one of your monthly newsletters. It’s a study in and of itself. I covet it. I need it. I want it. I have to have it, please. I have the call of the father hwhy on my life.


    Dear Brothers & Sisters of Yahweh. I would like to first send my love & respect to you all. I am Alex. I am a new man in our Father’s true name, and of the Savior’s true name. Yahweh has opened my eyes to see and my ears to hear. This is the first time in my life that I have started to believe in anything. I am 37 years old, and I am free from my sins. I am looking forward to growing in wisdom, love, and in faith in Yahweh’s real truth. I would like to receive your Yahshua’s Witness Magazine, and anything else that you can bless me with. I would like a Hebrew dictionary if you have one to spare. May Yahweh continue to bless you all with His divine love, and protection from any evil that this world might bring on us all. Peace be with all of you. Love, your brother Alex. AA/CA

    May Yahweh Elohim continue to bless you with the means to share His life-giving life. And may He continue to bless me with your association. Thank you for the years of vital information that has helped to build me into a knowledgeable minister of Yahweh Elohim. I have learned so much from your articles. I am sending $5.00 with this letter. Also would you please tell me how much it costs you to print an issue so that in the future I may cover that cost for myself and two others. Thank you.


    ANSWER: Thank you so much for your donation and you intentions to help furnish our works to others. Each magazine costs us about $1.20 each to produce. But this doesn’t include the cost of the paper, nor the cost of the copy machine, etc.  JH

    Let me start this letter by praying that the love and peace of Yahweh be magnified in you. Amen!

  I just received the Jan.-Mar. 2010 edition of your Yahshua’s Witness Magazine. I can’t tell you how much I am changing. I’ve been calling on Jesus for a long time, but the Spirit in my heart is confirming your truths about Yahshua. I believe this is Yahweh’s wake-up call for me. I recently lost my mother and I think He’s showing me His true self at just the right time.

  I’ve been on drugs for as long as I can remember. So many times I’ve cleaned up with a good job, car and even a wife of 6 years only to fall back down and lose everything. I mean over and over. The addiction I suffered from was controlling my life. My sister passed on in 2006 and my mom in 2007. Yahweh is all I have. So when you and others of the same beliefs help me and send me study material, it helps me get closer to the one I love.

  You don’t know how much your help means to me!

  I would like to subscribe to your Bible Correspondence Course.

  Also, in your magazine it says to ask for a free booklet (Who is Melchizedek). I’m really just converting from Christianity. Could you send me whatever information you can? Thank you. JB/TX

 Greetings to Yahweh’s Evangelical Assembly in the name of our Savior Yahshua Messiah. My knowledge and spiritual growth has increased from the reading & studying of your articles. I have a better understanding of Scriptures, and it is leading me to a better and more intimate relationship with my Maker. I thank you for Yahshua’s Witness Magazine, and the YEA Newsletter. I have read a lot of the Ynca material, and many books by Armstrong. I have the Strong’s Concordance and the Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon, and also The Word of Yahweh. So, I am having a most wonderful and most  blessed time of my life learning the TRUTH. I am incarcerated at Kentucky State Reformatory at La Grange, KY. At this time I am unable to tithe. I do try and make up for it in my time of studying the Scriptures and all material available that pertains to His Word. I will not always be here and I will not forget “YEA.” I truly believe I am ready to be baptized in the saving Name of Yahshua the Messiah. I know that I was called by Father Yahweh to make my selection sure. I repented and now I do His will by keeping His commandments, His statutes, and His laws to the best of my ability. I am willing to sacrifice all that I have, to be washed clean, and become justified in His most Holy and precious Name. May Yahweh always bless “YEA.”



  Lesson #1: I appreciate you acknowledging that there is an inner and outer meaning in Scripture in your explaining of the Bible. I also appreciate that you say study to find the wisdom, rather than just accept things at face value. JB/CA

  Lesson #2: I am really enjoying these lessons. Thank you very much for them. My eyes are being opened to so much truth. SA/CA

  Lesson #3: It is quite amazing! Thanks be to the Creator Yahweh for giving you wisdom to teach one such as I. I am truly grateful for your Bible studies. I can hardly wait for Lesson #4. SA/CA

  Lesson #6: These lessons are truly a blessing to me. Thank you. Your brother in Messiah. GL/OR

  Lesson #7: The lesson on grace has really opened my spiritual eyes. Your lessons have set me on a course of true knowledge. Thank you. LA/NM

  Lesson #9: This study brings to light all the false teaching of Christianity that has been allowed to be accepted over 100’s of years by the people and leaders of our churches. RJ/TX

  I’ve done a lot of research in the paganism stuff and have The Two Babylons and Fossilized Customs and Devil Worship that teach of these things, and I want to commend your work and research on this lesson because it is the best one I’ve done, and I’ve done a few. I really like your lessons that you’ve sent me and so far the work that you’re doing is needed to bring light to the truth in the Scriptures. I pray that Yahweh blesses your work abundantly! I share and give to any that will listen. Shalom. DT/LA
