I want to share a couple of things with you that you might want to carry into 2020 with you. Its personal, and the way things are these days, it is somewhat risky to reveal too much about oneself.
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”?”
Yahusha Said He Came to SEND A Sword
Mat 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came NOT to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
When Yahusha spoke these words, He knew with perfect precision what He was saying. He chose His words with complete precision, never saying what He did not intend to say. He could have said “I came not to send peace, but division/discord/hatred/enmity” or some other word.
But He did not use those words.
He said He came to send a sword, just as He meant when He ordered us to Continue reading “When Yahusha Sends, Who Does He Send? Why Does He Send Them? What Do They Do?”
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.
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…
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.
Through a glass, darkly. That is how the best of us live, seeing our lives through the Holy Spirit (if saved and having turned from our disobedience to obedience) and filtering the truth through our human minds and emotions.
Until we are free from our physical, dirt-centric human vessels, we must endure the imperfect understanding we live with now. As human beings, we can never walk as we will walk with Him in the next.
So we march along, sometimes smug in our status, sometimes shamed by our sin, always dealing with the contrast between our dirt foundation and the righteous perfect love made manifest by the Holy Spirit, who dwells within those who love Yahusha and obey His commands.
Like shape-shifting “aliens” (demons) with a broken “shift shape now” feature, Continue reading “Love: The Best And Most Difficult Choice.”
I was reading the comments on Chik-Fil-A abandoning some organizations that serve Yahuah, especially the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army, you see, stands against homosexualism, as do I and as does the Word of Yahuah. In fact, Yahuah says to kill practicing homosexuals, pedophiles, adulterers and some others. (Leviticus 18 and 20)
Yahusha mercifully relieved us of the requirement to stone homosexuals when he saved the life of the woman framed for adultery. “Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone“. So no stoning from us, but an abomination is still an abomination and homosexualism is detestable in the eyes of my Father. Those are His Words. I submit to Him.
In one of the comments on that web page, a fellow cited that he was a “Christian”, and said that he was against anything that causes “division”.
A “Christian” standing firm against “division”.
One of the things I most enjoy about my Father is the situations He puts us in. He puts us to the test all the time, and this is an instance of that. He wants to know who will stand for Truth? How will we do that?
Yahusha said that He did not come to bring peace, but a sword 🙂 Wow I love my Holy Father! He is all business and He never deviates from His Words. How mighty He is, how Perfect in His understanding and how Good He is to me.
33But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven. 34Do not assume thatI have cometo bring peace to the earth;I have not come to bring peace,but a sword. 35For I have come to turn ‘A man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.…
So brothers and sisters, though we are few, we are worldwide. We have regular visitors from all over the earth, one here – one there, a sprinkling.
We are few, finely and rightly divided – separated out from the world. We are different, holy, a royal priesthood.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9 NIV)
And what might that “wonderful light” be? It is the fullness of our relationship with Yahuah through submission to Yahusha, who came to claim, to place His mark on ALL who Yahuah has GIVEN Him. Yahusha will not lose one single soul of the elect. All will ascend to stand before the Throne of Yahuah and look directly into the “impenetrable light”, wherein resides The Father of All That Is. The Origin and The End. That is why we strive in this dead world – for that moment in that Light with Him. It is the pearl of great price, worth selling everything to obtain.
We will always be few on earth, and we will be hunted and persecuted. Don’t fear that. Embrace it. It is an honor to hated by the enemy of the Light. If they ever start executing Natsarim, I will run to the front of the line. (Sounds like Peter saying he will never denounce Jesus, huh? 🙂 Well, I pray that Yahuah will give me the heart to run to the front of the line.
Love you all. I surely do. You are true sheep, so sweet and precious.
This is a tremendously exciting scripture. When one understands that we are called to accept Yahusha’s salvation and to follow the commands of Yahuah, the whole Bible lights up.
For example, last night I was teaching my sons Torah, reading from the front page of this website. The part from the Book of Acts was a terrific teaching point, and one we are all to remember.
Acts 24:14 (NKJV) – “But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the Elohim of my fathers, believing (“believing” means doing) all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets.
Who wrote this? Who is it that stated they worship Yahuah through believing all the law and the Prophets?
He who lives by the sword will die by the sword. So let’s not live by the sword, but only use it to defend our righteous and holy way of life. Jesus required His disciples to be armed. He requires YOU to be armed, too. He is the same, regardless of era, and He is with us, regardless of location.
Fighting for what you know to be right is not “living by the sword”. Using the sword for a few years of your life to fight wickedness in high places is not the same as using the sword as a way of life. Bandits do that. Robbers and governments do that. Peter and company didn’t use their swords except when Yahusha (‘Jesus’) was being arrested.
When evil showed up to conquer good, the followers of Yahusha pulled their swords. Yahusha instructed them that “this must happen”, He had to be arrested. “For now” meaning put your weapons away for this one event to take place.
Luke 22:49 And those around Him seeing that about to occur, they said to Him, Lord, shall we strike with our swords?
It was not only Peter who was armed going in to this confrontation. All of the disciples of our Messiah were armed and ready to fight. They asked our Lord for guidance, and guess what He told them?
Ask your pastor, or Sunday school teacher. See if they know. This is very important, as it involves a command of God.
When the disciples prepared to fight using deadly weapons and deadly force against those arresting Jesus, they asked one question: “Shall we strike with our swords?” They were armed, as Jesus commanded the night before, and prepared to fight. They already owned their weapons, as they did not have time to go buy them. Only hours went by from the breaking of the evening bread to the prayers in the Garden and subsequent arrest.
Yahusah replied to the swordsman/disciple “But יהושע answering, said, “Allow it this far.” And touching his ear He healed him.”
“Allow it THIS FAR”. Allow Yahusha to be arrested. Allow it, not use force to STOP it. THIS FAR. This event. This wicked act which had to be done. Allow that. This far. Not further? So only allow this one thing? Hmmm…
So how much wickedness are YOU allowing? Where are your weapons and where is your will to fight? Is it fear? Do you need someone’s permission? Do you want someone else to do your fighting? Fear your government?
Look in Washington D.C. and see the liberal filth that passes for “government”. Vultures and carrion eaters, that is what we have in D.C.
Trump needs to call on the militia and order the military to stand down.
Watch this video. Its short, but makes a good point that should open some eyes. We are in a war that needs to be decisively escalated, now.
And this is my comment on this video, as posted on the Orwellian YouTube…
Absolutely. When I attended university in Texas, one of my professors was chair of the Nacogdoches, TX Democratic Party. He recruited me to run for Texas Legislature based on my weeks of comments in his class. I am political and was interested in running, so he gave me two books to read from his shelf. Both were Soviet-era how-to’s on taking control of the children AWAY from their parents and giving that CONTROL to the State. Both from Moscow University Press.
I read one and yep, that was a good plan. Then I became a conservative. The process took a little bit, and it was the election of Ronald Reagan (I was 21 at the time) that won me to the Right. I instinctively know that the plan to subvert the parents would be the ruin of the children, and turned away from the Dems. I kept those books for years, and one day tossed them into a dumpster.
The Left is the enemy of America in the most powerful sense of the word. These people are, for want of a less abused word, insane. Their minds hold no value save the love of anarchy, rebellion and decay. If Trump called me to arms against the Left, I would show up anywhere ready for the fight, and I would not be squeamish about it. If the Left is not dealt a death blow soon, we will cross the tipping point into some real darkness. Already we are in the abyss. The LAST place we want to end up is at the bottom of it.
Trump is being attacked continuously to add drag to his change process. The Left knows full well that their “impeachment” calls and their ‘collusion” mantras are bogus. Truth is irrelevant. The goal is to keep the pot boiling, no matter what. This is obvious to most of us. So, what is the thing to do? I say that we turn and face them full on with vigor and grim determination to utterly decimate them. They are not Constitutional Americans – they are Marxist idiots dancing on the graves of Robert E. Lee, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, The United States Constitution, The Holy Bible, the sanctity of life, biological fact, truth, reason, common sense, liberty, self-determination, free thought, free speech, self-defense against illegal standing armies and a thousand other cuts. Remember – death by 1000 cuts is an old Chinese proverb.
I say prepare yourselves mentally and emotionally to be called to fight by the Commander in Chief. Trump is no fool. He is a gift against hell and tyranny.
Yahusha does not command that we allow wickedness to prosper, only that we allow Him to be arrested to die for our transgressions of the instructions of Yahuah.
Mr. Trump, are you in charge or not?
