Did Yahuah Say That An Adulterous Murderer Was A “Man After His Own Heart”?

Have you ever been asked who your favorite person is from the Holy Bible?  If you have a favorite, who is it?  What makes that person your fave?  Continue reading “Did Yahuah Say That An Adulterous Murderer Was A “Man After His Own Heart”?”

UPDATE: Rugby Star Israel Folau Wins Court Battle After Being Fired For Proclaiming Biblical Truth Against Homosexuality

The Israel Folau story is interesting because he directly quoted scripture and was fired from his Rugby team six months ago.  Folau is a fine person and to see him fired and publically attacked like he was, hurt.

It is with gladness of heart to announce that he was put back onto the rugby field and nice compensated for his wrongful termination.  So, good news for decent people everywhere.

Australian rugby star Israel Folau won his battle in court against Rugby Australia after he was fired for posting a picture on his Instagram account that read “Hell awaits you” with reference to, among other things, Homosexuals.

Interestingly enough, other behaviors were listed in that Instagram post, including drunks, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolaters [sic].

However, not to leave those committing these sins in despair, Folau pointed to the biblical message of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

He also cited the Scriptures to back the message that he posted.

Outsports reports:

Rugby Australia fired Folau earlier this year for his “hell awaits” post, declaring it a breach of their code of conduct, and the former star sued for wrongful termination. At first he asked for $10m in Australian currency, but last week upped his demands to $14m.

Twelve hours of negotiating Monday ended without any progress, but on Wednesday RA and Folau’s representatives issued a joint statement declaring they had reached a confidential settlement and that both sides apologized for ”any hurt or harm caused.”

Wife: Respect and Submit To Your Husband

There is a personal, direct, on-going “walk” (‘walk’ seems cliche’) with Yahuah that runs through the souls of His sons and daughters.  We feel His presence, we talk to Him and He ministers to us through His spirit.  We are, to quote the street, “‘feelin’ it, dawg”.

As a man and husband, I am keenly aware that I am commanded to love my wife as I love myself.  It is a command, not an idea or a suggestion.  Love also covers a multitude of sins, or transgressions of the law.

There Is Nothing That Compares To The Power Of Truth

Last week I started teaching my sons from the Book of Matthew (Besorah Matityah, or “The Good News According to Matthew”).  Matityah (aka Matthew by the KJV translators/creators) is a very special book on the Word of Yahuah, because it teaches so many things.

One of the “things” that Matityah teaches which is quite remarkable is this: If you do not forgive your enemies, or those who have harmed you, Yahuah (“God” per the KJV translators) will not forgive you of your own sins.

These Words are from the very mouth of Yahusha.  Carve them onto your forehead… Continue reading “There Is Nothing That Compares To The Power Of Truth”

The Prince of Peace Came To Create Deadly Personal Conflict In Your Life

Mat 10:34-36 – Yahusha said “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. I came to divide a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a bride against her mother-in-law. Ones hostile to the man shall be those of his own house.” Mic. 7:6

Mat 10:21  But brother will betray brother to death, and the father his child. And children will rise up against parents and will put them to death.
Mat 10:22  And you will be hated by all on account of My name, but the one enduring to the end shall be kept safe.

Yahusha (Jesus) came to stir up trouble.  He came to lay down the dividing line between the faithful and the fake.  He came to create deadly division, to divide, to separate and to create strife, enmity and hatred toward those who follow Him and from those who fight Him.

Which are you?

Do you create tension and division between people with your words?  What do you believe?  Who is your god? Are you hated by your own family?  Do you fear being hated on account of your faith?  I tell you it is better to be hated unto death by everyone close to you than to turn away from Truth.  And by Truth, I mean Truth that you read here, not “truth” you get at your Baptist church, or Catholic shrine, or local “Bible” church.

I am reminded that this is why the Word commands that we “forsake not the assembly of men”, because getting as far from people as possible sounds so good.

Do you know these writings are so powerful?  The answer is quite simple.  I only write what Yahuah gives me to write, and He only gives me His Word to write.  It is His Word which has strength.  Sometimes I include the chapter and verse for the babies, but mostly I just quote scripture from heart without even commenting that the words are scripture.  I do expect most of you to know these already, or to do biblehub or Google searches for phrases and learn how to verify things you might not understand.

I learned that the Word of Yahuah is only complicated when one attempts to twist it into some lie.  The Word seems to be very straight-forward, easy to understand if one is willing to follow Yahuah and if one learns what certain words mean; words such as “righteousness”.  If you do not know what that means scripturally, you will never understand the Truth.  Our error is thinking that we automatically know what certain words mean.  We do not, and that is a grave error.

These words that we think we know are words used by English-speaking bible translators to approximate the meaning of original Hebrew or Greek or Latin.  These words are also used in modern speech to mean something different in our minds, so when we read these words in scripture, we think we know what it is teaching, but do so in error.  This translation error actually cements error into our minds.  We think we do right when in fact we live in sin.  Its huge.

An easy example is the word “Righteous”.  In the mind of a common Christian reader, he will automatically (!) continue on thinking that he knows what “righteous”means”.  But he does not, because “righteous” is a measured thing.  Yahuah examines our conduct to see how obedient we are to His commands.  The “righteous” are those who are obedient to the commands of Yahuah, and the more obedient one is, the more righteous he is.

Most Christians think “righteousness” means saved, so when they read the word “righteous” in the scriptures (and generally only in the 2nd section of the Words, aka “New Testament”) they blow by it thinking that because they confess “Jesus”, then they are “righteous”.

This is a deadly error, and clearly if they loved Yahuah they would also study first and most the Law and Prophets and Writings; Part One of the book, aka “The Old Testament”.  They do not, and they hate people like you who do, and who know we are required to follow Torah.  Even Yahusha states plainly that no part of the “Law” (actually, it is “the Words…”) of Yahuah will pass away during the time of the humans on earth.  The Words of Yahuah are permanent, and only the righteous abide by them.

Do you see how your righteousness makes you a spiritual freak to the world, and especially to “Christians”?  They despise you because you are a perpetual reminder that they have no FAITH, that their religion is worthless because they are unrighteous.

Look, people will hate you for wearing a tzitzit.  You know, the four corner tassels.  But Yahuah commands that there is only one form of acceptable worship for both the Hebrew and the gentile – “one law for both”.  We are commanded by Yahuah to worship Him just as the Hebrews are commanded to worship Him.

I just let out a little scream here at my desk.

This is so frustrating, to continually produce work which clearly teaches the very plain words of Yahuah, and people continue to deny Him, claiming some fantasy that His commands are void now.

I want to just quit and go fishing, but noooo… the Holy Spirit compels me to continue 🙂  And indeed I must, for there is nothing valuable in all human existence that equals His Word and no greater work for a man to do than to read, study, learn and teach the Truth.

We are at the point of inflection now.  The long slide into chaos has begun.  Hatred is expanding, rooting deeply into mankind.  The sword that Yahusha sent is swinging violently.  War will come.  Hatred will reign supreme.  YOU, if you believe as I believe, will be hated by your own mothers, your own fathers, your spouses and children.

Why?  Because Yahusha says that is why He came – to create bitter division and hatred. “I came to divide… to bring a sword…hostile…not to bring peace…” So if you follow Him, you will walk face-first into hatred from your own people.

We are required to forgive, you and me.  Required.  It is not an option.  Yahusha promises that His Father will deliver every unforgiving follower of The Way to the torturers, as well as newly saved non-Torah observant.  So love those who persecute you.  Just love them and forgive them immediately.  They struggle with so much.

Here is a copy of an email from one of my own family – a “christian”:

C’mon man – defend your critique & failing grade of the testimony & teachings penned by 1st century Jewish men that wrote about the man they lived w/ whom they called Messiah — & did so in & regarding language they lived  & breathed. Tell me how Mr Scott’s little Hebrew pocket reference helped you see through their flawed scribbles. This may be the most irresponsibly stupid thing you’ve ever shared. Sub-imbecilic; & in your petulant assault on my faith … your scholarly assessment of Peter, James, John, Paul’s, etc spiritual teachings earns you every syllable of that description. I imagine Paul’s would be a tad more harsh.

C’mon blog man – your condescension has me in it’s grip. I’ll dig w/ you. You wanna help blind sheep see – practice on me. I’ll brush off & brush up on my Hermeneutics. Fun fact & not just a funny word – it’s a real method used for interpretation of scripture & the good thing is I’ve taken it – along w/ much involved in the way of studying scripture. True, I’ve not read Mr Scott’s book but I’ll just have to try & keep up w/ your far superior grasp of these holy works.

I’m all in a wonderful spiritual lather, now. Captive audience to hang on your every single solitary declaration.  I’m literally shakin’ to be educated …

This person only wishes to fight and has no interest in Truth.  His religion is his god, and he refuses to read what I have already posted publically in order to understand.  Beware of wolves in sheeps clothing.  This email is from someone in my family that I love very much, and he attacked me more directly shortly after this.  Hatred.  Vile, bitter, relentless and boiling hatred.  Christians.  Family.  Their god is Christianity, not Yahuah.  When they ask “What would Jesus do”, they prove their lie, because Yahusha only did the will of His Father.  Yet the Christian ignores things such as facts and direct statements and embraces the Yellow Road fantasy of a religion that they worship as god.

Not that their hatred matters.  They will be delivered to the torturers, and man, is this guy at their mercy.  He lives in a hell of his own choosing.  The primary thing is to keep your eyes on Yahuah.  The words and deeds of the lost  are meaningless.  Most, by far, have no ear to hear anyway.  My liberation into Torah was by the urging of the Holy Spirit, not by any person.  So it takes time and you are not likely to convert many, if any.  Remember – the “mystery of lawlessness” was a puzzle to Paul, too.  He was stumped as to why so few embraced Torah.  But we know why – the Torah/Yahusha followers of The Way are the elect, and there are few of those.

Many of you have shared your trials with me, and all I can say is that my heart is with you.  It can be a lonely time, but it will not continue to be lonely.  I love you, which is great, but what most of us need is a faithful friend.  Its hard to be a faithful friend over the Internet :), but like a mother hen I used to have, I wish all my chicks were near.

Yahusha is fierce, do you understand?  He came in kindness and returns covered in blood.  You need to understand that you will be hated, and the hatred we will experience is the “end times” level of hatred.  Nasty, relentless and everywhere.

But consider this: I hope your brothers and sisters in The Way will LOVE you, and you will love them.  I hope this will be the kind of love that we always dream of, the real thing, filled with the love of Yahuah.  Yes, I hope we will love one another.

If you find yourself in a relationship that is being stretched to the snapping point, and if you are ridiculed by that other person over your walk in The Way, then prepare to let that person go.  We must begin immediately to embrace and follow The Way, which is Torah (the Law and the Prophets), and the teachings of Yahusha and the disciples/apostles.

This isn’t complicated.  Eat clean food – no pork, only fish with fins and scales, no claws, does chew cud and split hooves.  I think I’m right on these basic delineators.  Double check me.

Honor the Sabbath.  Never forsake the Sabbath.  Honor the Sabbath.  Sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday evening.  Do not do work that profits you, and avoid any labor as much as possible.  You might have to help someone do some kind of work on the Sabbath, but this should be a voluntary thing and not an income thing.

Some teach that we should do basically nothing on the Sabbath, but since the Sabbath is a day of rest made for man, I like to rest on my mountain bike.  It is intensely physical and greatly relieves stress in me.  Today (the Sabbath) I also made my 13-yr old sons rake up some leaves that they had left on the sidewalk for days.  They complained bitterly and seem unable to grasp the concept of work or effort.  Yeah, it was work on the Sabbath, but it was for another person, a “neighbor with a donkey in a ditch” sort of thing.  It had to be done and be done well.

Not a pretty Sabbath today.  There was a parade in my small town today, the “Christmas” parade.  No Christ in it at all – just wicked Shriners/Masons, commercial advertisers, some school bands, some Christian churches promoting “Christmas”, and the liar in the red suit at the end.  My five-year old and I left early to go buy some candy at the store.

Before the parade I noticed that lots of people were bypassing the “Do Not Enter” barricade on the street corner in front of my house.  That irked me, so I took out my phone and pretended to video people moving the barricades (and breaking the law) so they could drive down into the parade area.

I was curious how people would react to being recorded breaking the law like that, and stood very obviously with my phone held high and directly at them.

I got cussed, photographed, threatened with “ass whipping”, told to “f… off”, and other stuff.  Two different men got up in my face, one huge fellow to “talk” and one to take my photo.  That one also threatened to, you know, beat me up.

All of this hostility because they were all exposed blatantly breaking the law simply because it was convenient for them.  When they complained to me, I just said “It is against the law to move barricades”.  That’s all I ever said, but the hostility was crazy out of proportion to the crime. And these people were middle and upper-middle class anglos, all.  Nice cars, ideal neighborhood, peaceful, prosperous little town.  Their anger was so quick to rise that it was very discomforting.  They hated being pinned like a bug to their outright contempt for the law.  It was truly something to experience.

Secular lawlessness is the norm.  You can see it.  Australia has secret courts and secret trials.  America is facing the most absurd, illegal, fraudulent impeachment attempt in history; China is violating the agreement they signed over Hong Kong, and the Hong Kongers are rioting over it.  Strife, war, hatred, lies – all growing worse, greater in number, and effecting more and more people.

Mat 10:21  But brother will betray brother to death, and the father his child. And children will rise up against parents and will put them to death.
Mat 10:22  And you will be hated by all on account of My name, but the one enduring to the end shall be kept safe.
Mat 10:23  But when they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For truly I say to you, In no way will you have finished the cities of Israel until the Son of Man comes.
Mat 10:24  A disciple is not above the teacher, nor a slave above his lord.
Mat 10:25  It is enough for the disciple to become as his teacher, and the slave as his lord. If they called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more those of his household?

There is tremendous violence simmering just beneath the surface of people.  Something will trigger that violence eventually, and you must be mentally prepared for it.  As Yahusha (Jesus) says, if you are persecuted in one place, flee to another.  Be prepared to do exactly that, and be prepared to be betrayed by your spouse or children or friends.  Don’t carry your cell phone when you flee, but carry a flip phone that you buy time for, like a TRAC phone.  A bounty is likely to be placed on our heads.  But if the beast is beheading folks, I’ll turn myself in at some point.  Probably.  I’ve been ready to go for a long time.

 

No “Lovin’ Feeling”?

I ride a mountain bike for fun and relaxation.  In order to get to the “relaxation” part, I generally have to exhaust myself, and brothers and sisters, I do mean exhaust.  Sometimes my legs are wobbly as I load my bike onto its rack on the back of my 4Runner.  This is because in order to get to that “relaxation” part, I have to ride 3+ hours, and its 3+ hours of some serious mountain biking (MTB) effort.

“The Mystery Of Lawlessness Already Is Working” – Is This Christianity?

2nd Thessalonians 2, v7, has been pecking at my mind for weeks. Peck-peck-peck… mystery of lawlessness… Paul…sent to the gentiles (non-Hebrews) Pharisee of pharisees… world-class Law teacher… hand-picked by Yahusha to teach the non-Hebrews… a Law scholar…

‘Gods you are , And sons of the Most High’

I think X-mas is tomorrow. How ironic it is that the “X-mas” thing, which is so offensive to most Christians, is also quite true. There is nothing of Yahusha in this pagan holy day.

But today is too important to spend it discussing what has already been put to bed.

Instead, let us talk about lust – you know – the “thirsting for another” kind of lust. Have you ever done that? Have you ever been snuggled up to your husband or wife or girlfriend or boyfriend, or crusing in your car or on your motorcycle or sitting alone on a park bench or sitting in church, burning with aching desire to have the person across the room, or in some other town, or across your dinner table?

The World Changes Right Away, and Yes, “Christmas” Actually Is a Pagan Festival

I was just concluding an email to a dear brother at FossilizedCustoms.com, when the Holy Spirit of Yahuah spoke in my spirit these words: The World Changes Right Away.

I hesitated for a moment before typing them, because I tend to hold back more than I should. I err on the side of caution. Not that caution is lack of faith, but because I often catch myself writing more information than most readers want to read.

Nonetheless, we live in the most important time of our lives, and much must be said, quickly.
