I was born into a world of chaos in 1943. After all, it was in the middle of
World War II. Within two years of my birth, the Axis powers were defeated and
the world seemingly entered into an era of peace. But did it? Communism,
socialism, and humanism have been on the march everywhere. WWII seemed to
produce a crowning achievement of peace, but that was only a façade. Look at
all of the wars that have been fought since WWII. The U.S. has been in the
middle of the major conflicts. Now, we are facing enemies planted right in our
But a greater war is being waged for your very own mind, and you may not
realize it, but you may already be a victim!Stella Morabito writes, “Nearly 100 years ago, Walter Lippmann wrote about
“the manufacture of consent” in his classic work, “Public Opinion.” On
the heels of that book, Edward Bernays penned a little volume called
“Propaganda,” in which he stated that an elite would always be
responsible for making the public aware of “new ideas” which the public
would then act upon as the elite nudged them into it. Related, but more
in-depth is Jacques Ellul’s 1962 book, “Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s
Attitudes.”(How to Escape the Age of Mass Delusion [from the internet])
You are being
“brainwashed” by an elite who is manipulating you to accept and embrace
whatever they dream up. This elite is in charge of the government, the money,
the media, entertainment, education, etc., etc.
Have you noticed how
the media is manipulating public opinion, even before all the facts are in, in
area like Ferguson, MO, and Baltimore, MD. Frankly, the ones being stirred up to
produce “chaos” don’t even care for the truth. They have already been
prepared beforehand via sentiments and propaganda that is anti-white,
anti-black, anti-Semite, anti-whatever.
“Political propaganda aims to mobilize the masses to move an agenda forward.
That’s most effectively done when the masses are unaware of the process.
It’s what “community
organizers” work towards, whether
they know it or not. Once the masses are mobilized to push for a cause, the
propagandists’ goals can be put into law.” (IBID)
Hmmm….wasn’t the President a “community
organizer?” Isn’t Al Sharpton another one? All of the problems that we are
facing today have come to a head under the current administration. Anarchy is on
the rise. What is anarchy? In this situation, it is 1. political disorder, 2. disorder in any sphere of activity, 3. without controls, lawless.
Do you get that? Ferguson was a lawless event. Baltimore
was a lawless event. It’s also showing up in our own communities, such as
McKinney, Texas where young people simply invited themselves to a pool party
which resulted in the police being called and when the police couldn’t control
the situation an unpleasant situation took place which looked bad for the
police. In another incident just aired on the news networks, a black woman took
her children to a public pool but were asked to leave because her children
wouldn’t obey the pool rules. When the police were called, the woman’s 12
year old daughter began to strike them. The whole family was in defiance of any
control or orders from the police. Of course, the media will present the
negatives concerning the police, because the effort is now to destroy any power
the police may have over the people. They, themselves will now be handcuffed.
This is what happens when people get away from the truths
of their Creator! When we allow the secular world to take over the government,
politics, education, media, science, etc. we become confused. Now, the overall
population even questions the Creator’s existence. Of course, the supposed
original faith of this country, Christianity, proclaims that Yahweh’s law is
done away. When His commandments are abandoned, then the precepts of men take
over. Man won’t even obey his own precepts, much less the precepts of the
Creator. We are now much closer to destruction than we have ever been. We are
now more confused than we have ever been. Faith has been perverted; marriage is
being perverted; sex has been perverted… People are becoming so confused, they
don’t know if they are male, or female. Everyone is beginning to question,
“Who am I?” What am I?”
Edward Bernays writes, “Propaganda will never die out. Intelligent men must realize that propaganda is the
modern instrument by which they can fight for productive ends and help to bring
order out of chaos.” (Internet)
Order out of chaos!? This is the motto of the Freemasons!
They admit that their god is Lucifer, the liar. Lies bring chaos. The only way
out of chaos, delusion, etc., is to embrace the truth of Yahweh’s word.
Embrace the true Savior Yahshua the Messiah. Learn of Him. Wash yourselves of
your sins and Satan’s lies in the waters of repentance and baptism in that
most noble name! JH

BAAL GAD THE LORD GOD OF CHRISTIANITY?
IS BAAL GAD THE LORD GOD OF CHRISTIANITY?
says that the old serpent called the Devil and Satan has deceived the whole
world (Rev. 12:9). Do you realize just how deep that deception is? This article
will reveal some of the depths of deception to those who are able to receive it.
many Christians the above question would be blasphemous to even contemplate!
They would never even consider the thought much less study like the noble
Bereans of whom it is written in the Scriptures: “Now these were more noble
than those in Thessalonica who received the word with great eagerness, and
searched the Scriptures daily, if these words were so.” (Acts 17:11)
But knowing that the Scriptures reveal to us: “And the great dragon was
thrown out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads all the
world astray.” (Rev. 12:9)
In light of this, does it not behoove us to study the Scriptures in order
to see if we too have been led astray by the old serpent, called the Devil and
Satan? More so in light of the following Scripture which explicitly tells us
that salvation comes in only one exclusive name: “And there is no deliverance
in anyone else, for there is no other name under the heaven given among men by
which we need to be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
Is it not evident then according to the above quoted verse that if Satan
wants to keep us from being saved or delivered all he has to do is to deceive us
into calling on another name rather than the one exclusive name that has been
given for that very purpose by our Creator?
I am always shocked and amazed at the ignorance of the Creator’s
professed people who cannot understand the simple fact that one is one and never
two, three, four, five, etc… Now surely if there is only one name given how
can these professed believers say that it doesn’t matter what name they call
on? Are they not deceived by that old serpent Satan the Devil if they are
calling on any other name other than that one exclusive name that was given by
our Creator Himself? Surely you can see that the only answer to our questions
is—yes, they have most definitely been deceived!
WHO OR WHAT IS BAAL?
To find the answer to this question a good place to begin is using the Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary.
bah’al; from 1166; a master; hence a husband, or (fig.) owner (often used with
another noun in modification of this latter sense):- + archer, + babbler, +
bird, captain, chief man, + confederate, + have to do, + dreamer, those to whom
it is due, + furious, those that are given to it, great, + hairy, he that hath
it, have, +horseman, husband, lord, man, + married, master,
person, + sworn, they of.
Now if these were the only uses of the word baal we really couldn’t
complain could we? Why? Because even Scripture reveals that Yahweh was a husband
to Israel. (cf. Isa. 54:5; Jer. 31:32). This in Hebrew would be Yahweh is baal
to Israel. Thus, baal is used in a good sense. But this is not the only usage of
the word base as we shall show.
#1168 ba’al, bah’al; the same as 1167; Baal,
a Phoenician deity:-Baal, (plur.) Baalim.
Here we bind another Baal, a bad one, a false deity. Can we find out more
about this false deity? Yes, let me quote page 1212 in the Explanatory Notes of
Ba’al: This word it seems, gradually became a proper name. A similar
Semitic word derives from the Aryan root Bhal, which means “to shine,”
according to some. According to W. H. Roscher’s well-known lexicon of
mythology, Ba’al (Bel, Belos) was the ancestral and national deity of the
Semites, and says that Ba’al was the founder of Babel (Babylon), according to
secular history. He is identified with Zeus, Jupiter, Ammon, Asshur, Assur,
Kronos, and Bel-Markud. Morris Jastrow, Max Müller, and W. H. Roscher all three
agree: Baal is the Babylonian sun deity. The Ba’als of the nations were sun
deities, and Ba’al worship means sun worship.
Quite revealing isn’t it? Would
Yahweh appreciate it if we called Him after the name of a false deity? A closer
look at a couple of Scriptures will answer that question easily! Let us see just
what the Mind of Yahweh is in regards to the above question.
“And in all that I have said to you take heed. And make no mention of the name of other mighty ones, let it not be
heard from your mouth,” Ex. 23:13.
“...And make no mention of the name of their mighty ones, nor swear by
them, nor serve them, nor bow down to them,” Josh. 23:7.
Yahweh has explicitly spoken to us by the above verses of Scripture not
to mention the name of the other mighty ones even to the point that they not be
heard coming out of our lips. So the answer to our question is: NO! Yahweh would
not be pleased if we called Him by the name of any other mighty one! So Yahweh
would not be pleased if we called Him Baal in the bad sense. But how is it we
can call Him Baal in a good sense and be right but yet use the same word and it
be in a wrong sense and Yahweh’s anger burn against us? What is the answer to
this apparent contradiction of Yahweh’s word?
To find the answer look again at Strong’s #1167. Read it again, please.
Did you see the answer? It’s really simple! Notice that it says: #1167 Baal
is…. (often used with another noun in modification of this latter sense.):
But what does this mean? To find the answer we need to research a few
more Scriptures that will shed much needed light on the subject. The three
Scriptures I want us to look at relate to a place in Syria called Baal Gad.
“Thus Yahshua took all this land: the mountain country, and all the
South, and all the land of Goshen, and the low country, and the desert plain,
and the mountains of Yisrael and its low lands, from Mount Halag that goes up to
Seir, and as far as Baal
Gad in the
valley of Lebanon below Mount Hermon…,” Josh. 11:16-17.
“And these are the sovereigns of the land which Yahshua and the
children of Israel smote beyond the Jordan, on the west, from Baal Gad in the
valley of Lebanon as far as Mount Halaq that goes up to Seir, which Yahshua gave
to the tribes of Israel as a Possession according to their divisions,” Josh.
“And the land of the Gebalites, and all Lebanon toward the sunrise,
from Baal Gad below Mount Hermon as far as the entrance to Hamath,” Josh.
Have you noticed that in each of the above quoted texts reference is made
to a place called Baal Gad? Just what and where was this place called Baal Gad?
Let’s again go to the Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary for the answer.
#1171 Baal Gad, bah’al gawd; from 1168 and 1409; Baal of Fortune: Baal
Gad, a place in Syria:- Baal-gad.
Now that wasn’t much of an answer was it? We still haven’t found out
who or what Baal of Fortune was. Let us dig deeper to find out the truth by
looking up the reference that was given under Strong’s #1409 for more light.
#1409 gad, gawd; from 1464 (in the sense of distributing); fortune:-
Now that still doesn’t give us much light, you might say. You’re just
giving us the run around with word games, you might say. Well, that’s exactly
what Satan, that old deceiver wants you to think! You see, he doesn’t want you
to be diligent seekers for truth. He doesn’t want you digging up in the
treasure house of the Hebrew language, because if you do, he knows you will find
out the deceptive word games he’s played on you!
Didn’t Yahshua tell us our search for truth would be like searching for
hidden treasure? (c.f. Mt. 13:44). Do you find hidden treasure just lying on top
of the ground or do you have to take a spade or shovel and work hard, digging to
Believe me, the answer was revealed under Strong’s
#1409 if you know where to find the Scripture that reveals this false
deity—Baal of fortune! Actually it will be quite revealing once you see it!
“But you are those who forsake Yahweh, who forget My set-apart
mountain, who prepare a table for Gad [that troop, KJV], and who fill a drink
offering for Meni [than number, KJV]. And I shall allot you to the sword, and
let you bow down to the slaughter, because I called and you did not answer, I
spoke and you did not hear, and you did evil before My eyes and chose that in
which I did not delight,” Isa. 65:11-12.
If you have a KJV Bible, you will find for Gad it says “that troop”
(Strong’s #1409). In fact many Bibles have center or side column references
that inform the readers that (that troop) or Gad is a false deity!
This can also be discovered by looking at Strong’s #1408.
#1408 Gad, gad; a var. of 1409; Fortune, a Bab. Deity:- that troop.
Here is where Satan has played word games to deceive the whole world into
worshipping a false Babylonian deity of Fortune! But who is really being
worshipped behind the name of this ancient idol Baal-Gad? And how has Satan
accomplished this so easily? Word Games! Remember Acts 4:12 (Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there
is none other name under heaven whereby we must be saved.
Remember that Yahshua also said, “...if another shall come in his own name,
him ye will receive.”
Notice under Strong’s #1167, one of the definitions of the word Baal
into English is lord!
BAAL ZEBUWB OR BEELZEBOUL
#1176 Baal Zebuwb, bah’al zeb-oob; from 1168 and 2070; Baal of (the)
fly; Baal-zebub, a special deity of the Ekronites: - Baal-Zebub.
Remember when the Pharisees called Yahshua the Messiah Beelzebub (Mat.
10:25) and claimed that He cast out the demons by the prince of demons (Mat.
12:24, 27; Mk. 3:22; Lk. 11:15, 18, 19). Well, now go to Strong’s #954 and be
ready for a shock!
#954 Beelzeboul, beh-el-zeb-ool’; of Chald. Or. [by parody upon 1176];
dung-god; Beelzebul, a name of Satan: - Beelzebub.
GAD, GAWD, GOD
Are you beginning to see that Baal = lord,
or master and that Baal is none other than Satan himself?! But coupled with
Satan’s title of Baal which equals lord, or Lord, or LORD, or master is the
word Gad. Gad meant Fortune or that troop. Could the old saying about a person
sold their soul to Satan have any bearing here? Satan will give you a fortune
for your soul, but once you have sold it to him, he will usually double cross
you and take your life (soul) away! How many troops of lost souls does Satan
have through his deceptions?!
Notice how the Massoretics vowel pointed the word Gad in Hebrew in 1409
like this: dG:. When pointed like this, the word is pronounced Gawd or God or god
in Hebrew. Now if we translate Baal Gad into English what does it become? Does
it not become LORD GOD? Or lord god? Or Lord God? The capitalization doesn’t
change the sound of the word in any way and even so the fact is Baal Gad is the
Lord God who is Lord Satan or Master Satan!
PUTTING IT TOGETHER!
Let me quote another explanatory note from pages 1214-1215 of The Scriptures: Gad: Apart from Gad, the son of Ya’aqob
(Jacob) there was another “Gad.” The astrologers of Babel called Jupiter
(Zeus) by the name “Gad.” He was also well known among the Canaanites (the
Kena’anites) where his name was often coupled with Baal, Baal Gad, which
according to the Massoretic vowel pointing in the book of Yehoshua (Joshua) is
pronounced: Baal God. This same name is discovered in the ancient Germanic
languages as Gott, Goda, Gode, God, Gud, Gade. And searching further back into
its Indo-Germanic (Indo-European) roots, we find that it traces back to the word
GHODH, which means “union” even “sexual union.” No wonder this meaning
is still evident in the Dutch and German gode. It is also not difficult to see
it in the English “gadfly” and “gadding about.”
It is no wonder then that Satan was termed Baal Zebuwb in Hebrew and Beel
Zeboul in Greek! So we have seen that both mean Lord of the flies (See Brown, Driver & Briggs Hebrew Lexicon to the
Old Testament under 1176).
How ironic that Satan was pictured as a gadfly or as one who gads about!
A look at the definition of these two words in Webster’s New World Dictionary is quite revealing: gad·fly
n., pl. flies’ [GAD²
+ FLY²] 1.
a large fly that bites livestock
2. One who annoys others.
gad·a·bout n. a person who gads about; restless seeker after fun, etc.
Gad¹ (gad) [Heb. gadh,
lit., fortune] Bible
1. The seventh son of Jacob 2. The
tribe of Israel descended from him
Gad² (gad) interj. [euphemism
for GOD] [also
a mild oath or expression of surprise, disgust, etc.
gad¹ (gad) vi. gad’ded,
to hurry, perhaps back-formation < gadeling, companion in arms < OE. gædeling:
for IE. Base see GATHER] to wander about in an idle or restless way, as in
seeking amusement—n. an act of gadding: chiefly in the phrase on (or upon)
Now let’s compare the meanings here with Isa. 65:11 where Gad has been
translated as “that troop.” 1. A troop is defined as a group of persons, animals, or, formerly, things; herd, flock, band, etc.
2. Loosely, a
lot 3. A body of soldiers
4. A subdivision of a calvary regiment that corresponds to a company of
infantry 5. A unit of Boy Scouts or
Girl Scouts under an adult leader 6.
[Archaic] a group
of actors; troupe, etc. (Webster’s New World Dictionary).
These definitions would cause the meaning of this word to fall in the
category of gad¹
in the sense of “gather” which is why the translators rendered Gad as
“that troop.” Gad¹ corresponds with the meaning of the deity of fortune which also
was Yahweh’s intended purpose for using the word, while Gad²
ties it all together in the sense of a “euphemism for God.”
In the book of Job, when Satan appeared with the sons of Elohim before
Yahweh, he was asked, “Whence comest thou?” Satan’s answer was, “From
going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” (Job. 1:7,
2:2) Satan as Baal-Zebub (Lord of flies) does exactly what a gadfly and a
gadabout does. He is a restless seeker after fun. He goes to and fro, up and
down seeking to annoy others (especially man, but also Yahweh) which he thinks
Satan does have a terrible bite and he can be very annoying too—just
like a gadfly! Also he gads about looking for souls to devour and it must be a
lot of fun for him to deceive and cause so much misery and suffering upon
humanity. (c.f. Job chapters 1 & 2 again; 1 Pet. 5:8). No
wonder Mr. Strong said that Beelzeboul was a name for Satan (c.f.
Strong’s #954 Greek Dictionary).
So what have we learned from our study of a few Scriptures using the
inspired Hebrew language and a few Greek words? We have learned that God was
originally the name of an idol once worshipped in Babel (Babylon). It was later
spread throughout the land of Canaan being picked up by the Canaanites and
adopted by the children of Israel when they went into apostasy!
We also have learned from Isa. 65:11-12 the shocking truth that many of
Yahweh’s people have been tricked into forsaking Yahweh for this pagan idol by
Satan playing word games. (c.f.
Jer. 2:10-13 and our article entitled “The Devices Of Satan.”)
The saddest part of all is that behind this pagan idol called Baal
Gad—Lord God stands the real being who is worshipped by the whole Christian
world—Satan himself! (c.f. Isa. 13:12-14; Ez. 28:12-19; 2 Thes. 2:3-12). Yes,
Christians are awaiting a final anti-Christ to come but do not realize he is
already in their midst and worshipped! Christians are preparing a feast table
for God—Satan and they don’t even know it and wouldn’t believe it even if
you told them! Christians just don’t realize who stands behind the idol and
its name to receive its praise and worship (c.f.
Lev. 17:7; Dt. 32:17; Ps. 106:37; 2 Chron. 11:15; 2 Cor. 10:21-22).
Baal Gad is the LORD God of the Christians but don’t try to tell them I
told you so because they wouldn’t believe it even if you showed it to them out
of the Hebrew Scriptures themselves! But if you are a Christian and you see the
truth herein presented, what should you do about it? The Scriptures have the
answer: “Truly, then, having overlooked these times of ignorance, Yahweh now
commands all men everywhere to repent,” Acts 17:30.
“Come, and let us turn back to Yahweh. For He has torn but He does heal
us. He has stricken but He binds us up. After two days He shall revive us, on
the third day He will raise us up, so that we may live before Him. So let us
know, let pursue to know Yahweh. His going forth is as certain as the morning.
And He comes to us like the rain, like the latter rain watering the earth,”
“O Yisrael, return to Yahweh your Elohim, for you have stumbled by your
crookedness. Take words with you, and return to Yahweh. Say to Him, ‘Take away
all crookedness, and accept what is good, and we will render the bulls of our
lips. Ashshur does not save us. We do not ride on horses, nor ever again do we
say to the work of our hands, ‘Our mighty ones.’ For the fatherless finds
compassion in you,” Hos. 14:1-3.
And Yahweh says in response to our repentence: “I shall heal their
backsliding, I shall love them spontaneously, for Thy displeasure has turned
away from him. I shall be like the dew to Yisrael. He shall blossom like the
lily, and cast out his roots like Lebanon. His branches shall spread, and his
splendour shall be like an olive tree, and his fragrance like Lebanon. Those who
dwell under his shadow shall return. They shall revive like grain, and blossom
like the vine, and become as fragrant as the wine of Lebanon. What more had
Ephraim to do with idols? It is I Who answer and look after him. I am like a
green cypress tree, your fruit comes from Me. Who is wise and understands these
words, discerning and knows them? For the ways of Yahweh are straight, and the
righteous walk in them, but the transgressors stumble in them,” Hos. 14:4-9.
As the Apostle Peter cried out, “Repent and be baptized everyone of you
in the name of Yahshua the Messiah for the remission of sins and you shall
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit,” Acts 2:38.
In another place he reveals that the name of the Messiah is the only name
under heaven whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
It is the admonition of this ministry that we repent of our sins and
fulfil the criteria revealed in Acts 2:38 and 4:12. May Yahweh bless you to see,
hear and understand these things and may you be led to fulfil them in your life.
BACK TO THE TOP
has done an excellent work here in showing us where the English terms “Lord
God”, or “the Lord God” come from. But there is much more to the story
which, with Yahweh’s help, I will endeavor to further reveal. By Jerry Healan
We must keep in mind what Donald has already pointed out from the
Scriptures. The main point is the fact that, “the great dragon, that old
serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, has deceived the whole world.” (Rev.
Yahshua said that he is a liar and murderer, “Ye are of your father the
devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the
beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he
speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of
it,” Jn. 8:44.
It was his original lie that deceived the woman Chavvah (Eve) which caused
her to partake of the forbidden fruit, and give it also to her husband (Gen.
3:1-6). This not only brought the suffering of sin, corruption, and death upon
themselves, but all of their posterity, “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.
It is revealed that he has power over all kingdoms of the world, “And the
devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world
in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All
this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto
me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt
worship me, all shall be thine,” Lk. 4:5-7.
This should serve as a loud warning to us all that the kings, rulers, prime
ministers, presidents, senators, congressmen, judges, etc. who have received
authority, receive it from THE GREAT DRAGON, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL,
With the world leaders under the power and influence of the dragon, what do
you think will be the result? “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine
a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel
together, against Yahweh, and against his anointed (his Messiah), saying, Let us
break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us,” Psa. 2:1-3.
In reality, the heathen, kings, and rulers are against Yahweh and His
Now, whether you want to believe this or not, this author has identified the
“little horn” of Daniel 7 to be none other than Augustus Caesar, and the
“little horn” of Daniel 8 to be Constantine the Great. These were two great
kings of the earth.
Augustus deified himself by declaring that he was the “son of god.” He
also exalted himself further to the position of Pontifex
Maximus (the great bridge builder, to wit; mediator between
heaven and earth). Interestingly, here was a man who declared himself to be the
son of god, while during the latter part of his life, the true Son of Elohim,
Yahshua the Messiah was born!
The history of those who succeeded Augustus in the office of Caesar Augustus
is that they all declared themselves to be the son of god. This of course meant
that the office of the little horn spoke great things (blasphemies)
Remember also that Rome is the successor to Babylon, being the fourth
kingdom of Daniel 2, and the fourth beast of Daniel 7. Daniel reveals that this
kingdom will continue until the kingdom of heaven is established under Yahshua
Constantine being a latter successor to Augustus, and also being the little
horn of Daniel 8….waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and cast down some
of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. Yea, he
magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice
was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. And an host was
given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and he cast
down the truth to the ground; and he practised, and prospered,” vv. 10-12.
“Practised, and prospered” means that he worked, or accomplished, and
pushed forward. As what? As the new truly accepted religion!
It was Constantine who entered into the New Testament (New Covenant)
Assembly, took over as her Pontifex Maximus
and began to cast out the truth, instituting instead the ways of pagan sun
worship, which SPIRITUALLY took away the daily sacrifice (prayers and service to
Yahweh through Yahshua) and attributed it to himself and his own chosen deity
the sun gods Apollo, and Mithras.
This effectively cast the truth to the ground (earth) and he and his
followers (subsequent kings and rulers of the earth) have been trampling on the
truth ever since.
He had served with his father in the British Isles, and as Julius Caesar,
came into contact with the Druids who worshipped a pagan savior who was hanged
on a tree, whose name was spelled YESU in the British Isles, but called Hesus.
On the European mainland, the Druids there had the same savior, but his name was
spelled ESUS, and had the same pronunciation, that of Hesus.
Daniel further revealed, “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when
the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences,
shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he
shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy
the mighty and the holy people. And through his
policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand;
and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he
shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken
without hand,” Dan. 8:23-25.
When it says “He will destroy the mighty and the holy people,” the word
destroy would better be understood as; “corrupt to destruction.” Who were
the mighty and holy people? Wasn’t it originally Israel? But during and after
Yahshua’s ministry, a mighty and holy people were raised up and sent forth to
declare salvation in, by, and through Yahshua the Messiah who had appeared on
Constantine utilized “dark sentences”, or proverbs, riddles, hard
sayings, etc. in order to confuse the masses, but especially and specifically
the corrupted remnants of Yahshua’s followers.
It is now obvious that he took the two variations of the Druidic savior Yesu/Esus,
and combined them into the Latin Yesus. He then masterfully, and subtly
equivocated this name to the Greek Iesou (-s). From whence comes this Greek
The Greek name Iesou/Iesous was first utilized by the Hebrew scribes who
were given the job of translating the Hebrew Old Testament into the Greek
language. All seventy scribes (or 72) utilized Iesou/Iesous for the purpose of transliterating the Hebrew name Yahshua into
the Greek. Since the Greeks have no letter “shin” (pronounced like sh), they
had to utilize the sigma in order to obtain the “s” sound, which the shin
also provides in various words. Thus, the Greek Iesou would originally have been
pronounced Yahsooa, but today it is pronounced like Yay-sou/Yay-sous. (Languages
corrupt down through the ages.)
King James followed Constantine utilizing Iesus in the original 1611 KJV
version as, at that time, there was no letter “J” in the English alphabet.
But the letter “J” was substituted for the initial “I” in later
versions. The false name Jesus continues to be utilized by deceived Christianity
to this very day.
GODS AND LORDS
The Apostle Paul says, “For though there be that are called gods, whether
in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,” 1 Cor. 8:5. (KJV)
Do you get that!? There are MANY GODS, and MANY LORDS!!!!! Every pagan god
or lord was distinguished by a proper noun, in other words...A NAME!!!!!
This means that the word “god” is a common noun, and also that the word
“lord”, or “the Lord” is a common noun!
The book of Judges reveals, “And the children of Israel did evil in the
sight of Yahweh, and served Baalim,” Judg. 2:11.
What is kept from your eyes is the fact that “Baalim” is translated from
the Hebrew ha-baalim
(~ylabh). The hei
(h) in front of the word baalim stands for the article “the.” Thus,
the word Baalim has erroneously
(deceptively) been presented as a proper noun which, in reality, it definitely
IS NOT! The article hei
(the) makes it a common noun.
As a matter of fact Baal has been translated from ha-baal (l[Bh)
several times in Scripture (See Judg. 6:25, 28, 30, 32; 1 Ki. 16:31-32; 18:19,
21-22, 25-26 (x2), 40; 22:53; 2 Ki. 3:2; 10:18-28; 11:18 (x2); 2 Chron. 23:17
(x2); Jer. 19:5; 32:35; Zeph. 1:4 in J. P. Green
Ha-baal (l[Bh) would be translated in English as
“the lord!” This is why Jeremiah wrote, “I have heard what the prophets
said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How
long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they
are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they
tell every man to his neighbour, as their
fathers have forgotten my name for Baal,” Jer. 23:25-27.
The Hebrew here is l[BB
(ba-baal). The first beit (B)
serves as the prefix “in.” It would be better translated as “in the
lord.” This is exactly what has been done throughout the Scriptures!
Yahweh’s name has been forgotten because it has been replaced by “the
Here is what they have done. By replacing the Creator’s name Yahweh with
“the Lord”, the name has not only been hidden, but has been made into a
common noun. While, on the other hand, the common noun ha-baal
(the lord) has been changed into a proper noun (Baal). What a disaster; what a
You must understand...as Donald pointed out, the Apostle Peter, under the
inspiration of the Holy Spirit declared, “Be it known unto you all, and to all
the people of Israel, that by the name of Yahshua
the Messiah of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom Yahweh raised from
the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the
stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the
corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved,” Acts 4:10-12.
There is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be
saved! The Prophet Joel, and the Apostles Peter and Paul all agree that we must
call upon the heavenly name Yahweh for salvation (Joel 2:31; Acts 2:21; Ro.
He has caused His name Yahweh (hwhy)
to be recorded 6,823 times in the Old Testament alone.
But the kings of the earth have removed His name and substituted the
false erroneous names of Baal (the Lord, God, Jesus, etc.).
Therefore, the kings of the earth have been complicit with the serpent in
committing fornication, and leading the earth’s inhabitants to do the same,
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked
with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the
great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the
inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication,”
Rev. 17:1-2. “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her
fornication, and the kings of the earth have
committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are
waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies,” Rev. 18:3.
The kings of the earth are the ones who have had the power and riches to
sway the people their way. They have always desired that their subjects be like
themselves, especially in their religion. Those who were different were
considered to be enemies and traitors. They would be grievously tortured and
eventually slain. As Paul reveals, they have not known Yahshua the true Messiah,
“But we speak the wisdom of Elohim in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which
Yahweh ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of
this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the
Sovereign of glory,” 1 Cor. 2:7-8.
The Roman Emperors didn’t care for the new faith as long as it was only
affecting the Judeans, but when it began to affect their own soldiers, such as
Cornelius, and the common people who worshipped the Caesars, then persecution
became the rule of the day.
Constantine eventually saw how he could utilize this faith to his own
advantage so he entered into the New Testament Assembly, became the Pontifex Maximus (mediating high priest between heaven and
earth), and began to dictate the worship. He corrupted it to
destruction (Dan. 8:23-25) by introducing the worship of the host of heaven, the
sun, moon, and stars. The ecclesiastical history is that the heads of Rome (both
east and west), who followed Constantine, forced their unconverted subjects into
this so-called new faith upon pain of death. Any true believers had to either go
into hiding, or flee for their lives.
Believe it or not, a last great martyrdom is going to take place before
Yahshua returns, “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar
the souls of them that were slain for the word of Yahweh, and for the testimony
which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Yahweh,
holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on
the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said
unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their
fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were,
should be fulfilled,” Rev. 6:9-11.
It is also written, “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me,
Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Sovereign from henceforth: Yea,
saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do
follow them,” Rev. 14:13.
Faith is being destroyed by the serpent in today’s world. He is angry and
knows that he only has a short time. So now we must make a choice. We must
either continue in this evil, deceived world, or we must change the course of
our lives by turning to our Creator in spirit and in truth. The admonition is,
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues,”
The end is getting near. Repent of serving “the Lord” (Baal)! Turn to
the truth. Turn to the true names of salvation, Yahweh and Yahshua, while you
can and save yourself from this evil generation!
BACK TO THE TOP
Yahweh commanded Israel to observe not
only the seventh day Sabbath, but annual holy days which were to be holy
convocations. One of the annual holy days was to occur on the tenth day of the
seventh month. It is called the “day of atonement” in the English
Scriptures, but the Hebrew calls it “yowm Kippuwr.”
There are many important facets to this day which we won’t be able to
cover in this short article, but we hope that this presentation will encourage
you concerning its importance. By
Yahweh commanded Moses, “Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there
shall be a day of atonement:
it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and
offer an offering made by fire unto Yahweh. And ye shall do no work in that same
day: for it is a day of atonement,
to make an atonement for you before Yahweh your
Elohim. For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day,
he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul it be that doeth
any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.
Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your
generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and
ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even
unto even, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath,” Lev. 23:27-32.
“Atonement” is translated from the Hebrew word kippurim. It is defined as; to cover
(specifically with bitumen); figuratively, to expiate or condone, to placate or
Yahweh further instructed Moses, “Speak unto the children of Israel, and
say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land
keep a sabbath unto Yahweh. Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years
thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof; But in the
seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for Yahweh:
thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard. That which groweth of
its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of
thy vine undressed: for it is a year of rest unto the land. And the sabbath of
the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid,
and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee, And
for thy cattle, and for the beast that are in thy land, shall all the increase
thereof be meat. And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven
times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto
thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to
sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the
land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye
shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto
his family. A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow,
neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of
thy vine undressed. For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall
eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year
of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.
And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour's
hand, ye shall not oppress one another: According to the number of years after
the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of
years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee: According to the multitude of years
thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years
thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of
the fruits doth he sell unto thee,” Lev. 25:1-16.
Furthermore, Israel was commanded, “At the end of every seven years thou
shalt make a release. And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that
lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his
neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called Yahweh’s release. Of a
foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is thine with thy brother
thine hand shall release; Save when there shall be no poor among you; for Yahweh
shall greatly bless thee in the land which Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee for an
inheritance to possess it: Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of
Yahweh thy Elohim, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee
this day. For Yahweh thy Elohim blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou
shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign
over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee. If there be among you a
poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which Yahweh
thy Elohim giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand
from thy poor brother: But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt
surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth. Beware that
there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year
of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou
givest him nought; and he cry unto Yahweh against thee, and it be sin unto thee.
Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou
givest unto him: because that for this thing Yahweh thy Elohim shall bless thee
in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. For the poor
shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt
open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy
land,” Dt. 15:1-11.
If the trumpet of Jubilee was sounded on the day of Atonement in the year of
Jubilee, then when would the seventh year of release begin? The Hebrew for
“release” is shemitah.
It has to do with the remission of debt.
What does kippuwr mean? Doesn’t it
mean to cover, placate, expiate, or cancel? Therefore, the year of release would
also begin on the day of atonement.
Another interesting point about the day of atonement is that it is the tenth
day of the seventh month. Seven is the number of rest while ten is not only the
number of ordinal perfection, but also the number of the yod (i), the initial of Yahweh’s
name! Doesn’t freedom, liberty, forgiveness, salvation, etc. come from the
hand of Yahweh? By the way, the yod
is the picture of a hand (i)
in Pictorial Hebrew.
But the day of Atonement is also the
fifth annual holy day in Yahweh’s calendar. Interestingly, five is the number
for “GRACE!” The fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is the hei (e/e
Modern and Pictorial Hebrew respectively). The combination of the tenth letter (yod/i),
and the fifth letter (hei/e)
gives us the shortened version of Yahweh’s name which is Yah (ei)!
This is the mark of Yahweh’s name on this most important day of every year,
every seventh year, and every fiftieth year!
The seventh day Sabbath, and the annual feast days are very prophetic. Those
who observe them should be growing in the knowledge of Yahweh’s plan and
purpose for salvation because that is what they are declaring as we observe them
from week to week, month to month, year to year.
We know that there is going to be a great Jubilee in the very near future.
However, the worldly representatives of God, and the supposed spiritual
representatives of Yahweh are blinded as to when this is going to come about.
Why? Well, of course the worldly detest spiritual things, but what about those
who are supposed to be the spiritual representatives? The fact of the matter is
that few have been properly observing the seventh year of release, nor the
Jubilees. This, of course, has fulfilled Yahweh’s purpose of keeping those
future times “hidden.”
Yahshua, Himself, proclaimed that no one knows the hour of His coming (Mt.
Peter encouraged the people of his day, “Repent ye therefore, and be
converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come
from the presence of Yahweh; And he shall send Yahshua the Messiah, which before
was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which Yahweh hath spoken by
the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said
unto the fathers, A prophet shall Yahweh your Elohim raise up unto you of your
brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say
unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that
prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets
from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise
foretold of these days. Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant
which Yahweh made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall
all the kindreds of the earth be blessed,” Acts 3:19-25.
Notice that! The times of the restitution of all things is coming!
Just before His ascension the disciples understood that Yahshua was supposed
to restore the kingdom to Israel, so they asked Him, “When they therefore were
come together, they asked of him, saying, Master, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to
Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the
times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall
receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be
witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto
the uttermost part of the earth,” Acts 1:6-8.
Yahweh is going to restore the kingdom to Israel. We are presently residing
in the times of the Gentiles. They began when Nebuchadnezzar captured Judah,
destroying Jerusalem and the Temple of Yahweh. They will continue until Yahshua
returns to establish the kingdom of (from) heaven on this earth. This is
pictured by the day or feast of trumpets when Yahshua will put down all
authority, take His power and rule with His resurrected saints.
This will be the restitution, the
restoration, which will usher in the seventh millennial rest on the earth.
TIMES OF REFRESHING
The Greek word for “refreshing” is anapsuxis which means “a recovery
of breath, or revival!”
This clues us in to the reality and fulfillment of Yahweh’s word. He
promised Abraham that his seed would be a great multitude, royalty, and blessed
(Gen. 15, 17 & 22).
The prophet Ezekiel prophesied that the whole house of Israel would be
resurrected from their grave, “The hand of Yahweh was upon me, and carried me
out in the spirit of Yahweh, and set me down in the midst of the valley which
was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there
were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto
me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, Adonai Yahweh, thou
knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O
ye dry bones, hear the word of Yahweh. Thus saith Adonai Yahweh unto these
bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I
will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with
skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am
Yahweh. So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a
noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And
when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin
covered them above: but there was no breath in them. Then said he unto me,
Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith
Adonai Yahweh; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain,
that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into
them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel:
behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for
our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith Adonai Yahweh;
Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of
your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am
Yahweh, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of
your graves, And shall put my spirit in
you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own
land: then shall ye know that I Yahweh have spoken it, and performed it, saith
Yahweh says that He will resurrect the whole house of Israel from their
graves and restore them to their land as physical, fleshly people! But this time
He will put His spirit in them, and then they will be able to perform His
They will also be able to multiply. How many children will be born to them
over a thousand year period? Yahweh can open the womb dramatically.
He goes on to say that He will unite the house of Israel and the house of
Judah into one kingdom, and He will put His servant David over them as their
At that time, Yahweh will utilize the resurrected Israel to overthrow and
destroy the rebellious, wicked and evil kingdoms of this world. After all, on
the day of Atonement, their leader known as Lucifer, Satan, the devil, etc. will
be removed from them and cast bound into the abyss (bottomless pit) for that one
thousand year period.
Ezekiel reveals the temple of Yahweh that will be built in those days, with
the restoration of the Levitical priesthood under the more faithful sons of
Zadok. I know that some will resist this, but a physical, fleshly people need
the shedding of animal blood to cleanse the flesh, but they will also have the
sacrifice of Yahshua the Messiah to purge and cleanse the conscience, “But the
Messiah being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more
perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in
once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an
heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
How much more shall the blood of the Messiah, who
through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to Yahweh, purge your conscience
from dead works to serve the living Elohim? And for this cause he is
the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of
the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called
might receive the promise of eternal inheritance,” Heb. 9:11-15.
They will be able to fulfill the Torah because they will have regenerated
physical, fleshly bodies, and Yahweh’s Spirit, which is the Spirit of peace,
rest, righteousness to lead and guide them into those marvelous paths!
This is just one of the lessons of the day of Atonement, specifically the
Jubilee, but what a tremendous lesson it is!
We pray that this revelation will be a great blessing for you in Yahshua our
