Do You Know What The “True” Gospel Is?
Yeshua/Jesus as well as the Apostles preached the “gospel”! But what is the “true” gospel? Do you know what it is? Do you believe it was the same gospel that the Apostle Paul preached to the gentiles? When you read or hear the term “gospel,” do you know what it means? We will take a look at the Scriptures to see how the Scriptures answers these questions.
Yeshua commanded in Mark 1:15 “repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Most people in the Church do not truly understand what this is saying. So, what exactly is it that we are supposed to believe? What is the “true” gospel? Do you know? Are you certain you know what it really is? Please be careful of making any assumptions. For instance, did Messiah Yeshua teach the same gospel that Paul preached to the gentiles? And what does the word “gospel” mean anyway? These are some hard questions we need to ask ourselves. We need to be grounded in the written Word and as it is written in 2 Timothy:
2 Timothy 2:15: Study to shew thyself approved unto Elohim [Mighty One/God], a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
It is sad to report that the majority of professing Christians around the world do not know the vital—all-important—answers to these basic questions and many others related to the “true” gospel written in the Scriptures! The reason for not knowing what the “true” gospel really is or having a clear understanding of what it really is boils down to the simple fact that it has been hidden from the world for centuries!
When Yeshua first came, He came as a first-century newscaster if you will, bringing advance “good news” of staggering events that were about to occur just beyond the horizon, and all the bad news occurring throughout today’s world. This climactic news involves you, and eventually every human being on earth!
Did you know there are six new books published on religion every day in America! Staggering! On top of that there are over two thousand separate religions in America alone! How sad! What is really sad about all these books is they are confusing and they often disagree about the answers to humanity’s problems. Troubles, woes, evils and human difficulties of every kind are multiplying every day. World peace is escaping us more and more each day. We live in a YHWH hating, Yeshua rejecting, sin cursed world. We have to ask, WHY?
There is so much knowledge available to mankind and yet mankind is so ignorant of the truths of life’s BIG questions.
All this has everything to do with the gospel!
In Revelation 12:9, it reveals to us “Satan, …deceiveth the whole world.” This is a staggering statement to say the least! Do you believe it? If this is true, then it would certainly apply to the true meaning and correct understanding of the gospel!
Many False Gospels
Most everyone in the Church believes that the gospel is about the person of Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ). Certainly, Yeshua plays an extremely important and central role to Christianity but He is not the gospel. The Scriptures show us that Yeshua is preached in conjunction with the gospel. Again, Yeshua’s role is enormous. But He is not the gospel. I know this is probably hard to swallow but hang in there with me. This will be cleared up in this teaching.
Some people proclaim a “gospel of salvation,” others a “gospel of grace.” Still others believe a “gospel of miracles” or a “social gospel.” Yet others think of the “gospel of foods” or of “healing” or of “faith.” And there are some who merely think of “gospel music” when they hear this word. These man-made ideas all ignore the truth of what is written in the Scriptures about what the true gospel really is!
Let’s take a look at Mark’s account:
Mark 1:14: Now after that John was put in prison, Yeshua came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of Elohim [Mighty One/God].
This is the gospel that Yeshua preached. It was in this same context that Yeshua said, “repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Which gospel?…of the “Kingdom of Elohim.”
In Mark 1:1, he refers to this message, where it states, “The beginning of the gospel of Yeshua Messiah.”
One must believe that gospel and not a humanly-devised counterfeit or substitute.
STRONG WARNING--DO NOT PERVERT THE GOSPEL
The subject of the gospel is so important that YHWH inspired the Apostle Paul to warn the Galatians then and to us today not to pervert the gospel message:
Galatians 1:6-9: 6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Messiah unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Messiah. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Did you pick up the warning given above was stated twice? There is a purpose for it being stated twice. That purpose is simple. We have been given two witnesses to this stern warning. This is a blunt statement made twice and a strong warning to all who will heed the warning!
In Galatians 2:5, Paul stressed his hope that the “truth of the gospel might continue with you.” There is one true gospel with all others being false!
Some have asserted that Paul taught a different or additional gospel. When we carefully read Paul’s writings, it is plain to see that he never did teach a different or additional gospel than what was taught to him. Interestingly, YHWH used Paul to warn against ever allowing any false teachings of the gospel by pronouncing a curse on any man, angel or apostles as it is written in Galatians 1:8: “But though we [Apostles] or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Clearly, anyone who violates this command is cursed.
This is a stern and powerful WARNING given to us from the Scriptures! It would be in our best interest to know what the “true” gospel is so as not to teach “another” gospel and bring upon ourselves a curse.
Paul clearly stated that the Apostles were entrusted by YHWH to preserve the “true” gospel. Did you notice what Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 2:4: “But as we [Apostles] were allowed of Elohim to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but Elohim, which tries [test] our hearts.”
It should be clear that this is a responsibility which should not to be taken lightly. True teachers of the Word of Almighty YHWH must always, without exception, teach what YHWH Commands and not what pleases men (including Bible “teachers/preachers/scholars”). For those who “claim” that Paul taught a different or second gospel (usually thought to be about Messiah or of “peace”) is impossible. Had Paul taught a different or additional gospel, he himself by his own words would have literally pronounced a curse on himself!
Yeshua Was Prophesied to Bring the Gospel
In the Tanach (Old Covenant/Testament), Yeshua was prophesied to come as a Messenger as it is written in Malachi:
Malachi 3:1: Behold, I will send My messenger [John the Immerser/Baptiser], and he shall prepare the way before Me [Yeshua]: and the Master [Yeshua], Whom you seek, shall suddenly come to His Temple, even the Messenger [Yeshua] of the Covenant, Whom you delight in.
Yeshua was the “Messenger” of the gospel, not the message itself. Yeshua’s message is the very core/centerpiece if you will of the entire Scriptures.
Now let’s compare the passage in Malachi we just looked at with Luke:
Luke 16:16: The Torah [Law/YHWH’s Teachings and Instructions] and the Prophets were until John [Please note here that only the Tanach/Old Covenant/Testament Scriptures had been preached previously]: since that time the Kingdom of YHWH is preached, and every man presses into it.
Do you remember in Mark 1:14 above where Yeshua preached the “Kingdom of YHWH,” and called it the gospel?
What is the Meaning of the term “Gospel”?
The word gospel is an old English word meaning “god spell” or good news. The word kingdom is also an old English term, simply meaning “government.” Therefore, it is accurate to say that Yeshua preached “the good news of the coming government of YHWH.”
The Kingdom of YHWH is the dominant theme throughout the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. It is sad to say that most people know little if anything of the “true” gospel. Ministers around the world do not appear to know what the “true” gospel is because they teach/preach what has been taught to them and not what is written in the Scriptures. This is not to say that all ministers are teaching another gospel. Some are teaching the correct, true gospel as given to us in the Written Word of Almighty YHWH. Those who are being taught another gospel around the world are in complete ignorance of the single greatest truth in YHWH’s Set-Apart (Holy) Written Word! Which is to repent for the Kingdom of YHWH is at hand.
How Many Times Is The Gospel Mentioned?
The word gospel is found over 100 times in the Scriptures depending on your translation. Sometimes it is found alone and sometimes “of the Kingdom” follows it. Other times, it includes “of the Kingdom of Elohim” or an equal phrase like “of the Kingdom of Heaven.” When you see “of the Kingdom of Elohim” or “of the Kingdom of Heaven,” both are speaking of one and the same thing, YHWH’s government coming here on earth when Yeshua comes to establish YHWH’s government on earth.
Please note the text says “of heaven” and not “in heaven.” It is heaven’s Kingdom and there is a big difference between the two. Just as the Kingdom of Elohim means YHWH’s Kingdom and not the Kingdom in YHWH, so the same is true of the Kingdom of Heaven or Heaven’s Kingdom.
This is an important concept to grab a hold of here! His Kingdom will be established here on earth and not in heaven.
Throughout the Brit Chadasha (New Covenant/Testament), the word “kingdom” is found 27 times, “Kingdom of Elohim” 75 times, and “Kingdom of Heaven” 34 times. There again depending on your translation. All are clearly pointing to one and the same thing.
What Did Paul Preach
Paul preached the Kingdom of YHWH to the gentiles. Yet, some believe that Paul preached a “different” gospel not taking into account that it was Paul who pronounced a curse on anyone who did teach/preach a different gospel. We will revisit what Paul wrote in Galatians:
Galatians 1:8-9: 8 But though we [Apostles], or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I [Paul] now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
While Paul preached the Kingdom of YHWH, we need to look at two verses in the book of Acts where it is written that Paul did not neglect the subject of Yeshua’s role in the salvation process. The first place in Acts 19 establishes “which” gospel Paul preached:
Acts 19:8: And he [Paul] went into the synagogue, and spoke boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the Kingdom of Elohim.
In many of Paul’s epistles, he taught the Kingdom to different gentile congregations. Paul’s message was always the same. He continually taught/preached and referred to the Kingdom of Elohim.
Next we will look at Acts 20:
Acts 20:25, 21: 25 I have gone preaching the Kingdom of Elohim 21 …repentance toward YHWH, AND faith toward our Master [Lord] Yeshua Messiah.
Paul preached the same gospel to the Jew and to the Gentile. Now let’s look at Acts 28:
Acts 28:30-31: 30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, 31 preaching the Kingdom of Elohim, AND teaching those things which concern the Master [Lord] Yeshua Messiah.
Luke, who wrote the book of Acts, differentiates between preaching about the Kingdom of YHWH and preaching about Messiah Yeshua! Both are vitally important. However, they are clearly two distinct and separate subjects! Please keep this in mind as we continue our study here on the gospel message.
We see in Acts where Philip who was one of the deacons also preached the Kingdom and Messiah Yeshua just as Paul did:
Acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip…concerning the Kingdom of YHWH, AND the name of Yeshua Messiah, they were baptized, both men and women.
We see here that Philip not only preached the Kingdom of YHWH but he also differentiated it from the teaching about Yeshua Messiah. Remember, it was stated earlier that the Messenger is not The Message.
Notice in the above Scripture (Acts 8:12) that those in Samaria were baptized after “they believed” the right message and not some man’s idea about it. Also note here that Yeshua’s name was taught as an all-important but additional, understanding. The name of Yeshua simply means “Yah Saves” or “Yah is salvation” or “Salvation.” Yeshua’s Set-Apart (Holy) name reflected His purpose/destiny—to save His people.
Yeshua is not the gospel. However, Yeshua does stand directly alongside the true gospel and He will rule the entire earth when He returns and establishes YHWH’s Kingdom here on earth. Do not lose sight of this very important fact!
Let’s look at one more verse in 2 Corinthians which contains another powerful warning where Paul himself made a distinction between the gospel and the person of Yeshua Messiah:
2 Corinthians 11:4: For if he that comes preaches another Yeshua, whom we [Apostles] have not preached…OR another gospel which you have not accepted, you might well bear with him.
In the margin of some Bibles, they more correctly render this last phrase as “with me” rather than “with him.” Paul wanted the Corinthians to reject false teachers and hold to what he had taught them. The point here is that Paul distinguishes between the teaching of a false Yeshua and that of a false gospel. These are and always have been two separate things.
Some people get confused when reading the first four verses in 1 Corinthians 15 thinking that Paul has contradicted himself from other passages we have seen by stating in verse 1 “the gospel” and connecting it with verses 3 and 4 where it says “how that Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He [Yeshua] was buried, and that He rose again the third day.” A careful reading of these verses will reveal that “the true gospel” which is the Kingdom of YHWH to come is not connected to the death, burial and resurrection of Yeshua for our sins. When we grasp this and correctly understand what the text is saying to us, we see that these verses are in harmony and support what is written in Acts 8:12; 20:25, 21; 28:30-31 and 2 Corinthians 11:4 as already noted above.
Since Yeshua preached “repent and believe the gospel,” it should be crystal clear to all of us why He taught/preached about the coming Kingdom of YHWH. Yeshua’s role must always be preached in conjunction with the Kingdom of YHWH, because no one can enter into the Kingdom of YHWH unless they understand and accept that “Messiah Yeshua died for their sins,” AND that person has repented of their sins. These two things are connected and cannot be separated. We MUST repent before we can enter into the Kingdom of YHWH to come.
Ask yourself: If Yeshua IS the gospel as many believe it is, then why did Paul four times and Philip speak of them as two separate matters?
Apostles Preached The Same Gospel
Do we have evidence in other Brit Chadasha (New Covenant/Testament) writings where the Apostles preached this same message that Paul preached and taught? The answer is YES!
The Apostle Peter preached and taught the Kingdom of YHWH:
2 Peter 1:11: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting Kingdom of our Master and Savior Yeshua Messiah.
The Apostle James also preached and taught the Kingdom of YHWH:
James 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, has not Elohim chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the Kingdom which He [Yeshua] has promised to them that love Him?
Both of these passages agree with Paul’s teaching about the soon coming Kingdom of YHWH.
YHWH’s Prophets Preached the Kingdom
We read in Acts where the prophets of old spoke of the coming Kingdom of YHWH:
Acts 3:19-21: 19 Repent you therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Master; 20 And He [YHWH] shall send Yeshua Messiah, which before was preached unto you: 21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which Elohim has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
Notice here that Peter refers to the Coming of Yeshua in Acts 3:19 as “the presence of the Master.” Peter is speaking of Yeshua’s Second Coming to establish YHWH’s Kingdom here on earth. In Acts 3:20, it states that YHWH “shall send Yeshua Messiah.” There again referring to Yeshua’s Second Coming. In Acts 3:21, it describes YHWH’s Kingdom as the “restitution of all things.” We know this has not happened at this point and will only take place when Yeshua comes to set-up YHWH’s Kingdom here on earth. Peter stated that this “restitution” where Yeshua establishes YHWH’s Kingdom here on earth is something “Elohim has spoken by the mouth of all His Holy Prophets since the world began.”
Is it true that all the prophets of old spoke of the coming Kingdom of YHWH? Is this true?
Is it possible that YHWH actually used all of His prophets to announce His coming Kingdom? Some Bible scholars, pastors, preachers and teachers ignore this knowledge and they even reject it without examining the text carefully.
Let’s look at some examples.
The Pre-flood Preachers
The Apostle Jude, Yeshua’s brother, stated:
Jude 14-15: Enoch [Noah’s great-grandfather]…prophesied…saying, Behold, the Master comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment upon all.
These verses clearly refer to Yeshua’s Second Coming to execute His Righteous Judgment upon a YHWH hating, Yeshua rejecting, sin cursed world to establish YHWH’s Kingdom here on earth.
We know from 2 Peter that Noah as the eighth preacher of righteousness:
2 Peter 2:5: And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
Jude wrote that Enoch was the “seventh from Adam:”
Jude 14: And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam…
These men were called “preachers of righteousness.” Including Abel, there were six other men who previously held this role, with their lives spanning the entire period between Adam and the Flood.
Careful review of Jude reveals that Enoch preached about sin and righteousness. All of these “preachers” spoke the same message. Remember, Peter said, “…since the world began.”
After The Flood -- Abraham, Moses and Samuel
Was the gospel preached after the Flood?
In Genesis 12:3, YHWH said to Abraham, “…in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.” This verse is also referenced in Galatians 3:8, yet it is stated a little differently: “…in you shall all nations be blessed.” This same verse states that the gospel was “preached before unto Abraham.” In order to be blessed, one has to repent of their sins and obey/keep/do the Commandments written in the Scriptures. This in turn prepares us to enter into YHWH’s Kingdom. Not only did Abraham have the gospel preached to him but it was also preached in Genesis through Moses writings. How can all nations be blessed unless Yeshua establishes YHWH’s Government on earth? It should be clear to everyone that there has never been any man-made government system that has ever accomplished this to date. It shall be accomplished when Yeshua comes the second time to set-up YHWH’s World Government System here on earth.
Looking at Acts 3, it shows that Moses preached the coming Kingdom when he foretold that YHWH would raise up Yeshua as a Great Prophet as noted in Deuteronomy:
Deuteronomy 18:15: YHWH thy Elohim will raise up unto thee a Prophet [Yeshua] from the midst of thee, of thy brethren [from the tribe of Judah], like unto me [Moses]; unto Him [Yeshua] ye shall hearken;
Now consider Hebrews 4:2:
Hebrews 4:2: For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them [ancient Israelites].
These verses, along with Acts 3, show that this included the period all the way up to and through the prophet Samuel.
Notice how Acts 3:24 references Samuel as having preached the gospel:
Acts 3:24 Yes, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days [speaking of YHWH’s Kingdom here on earth].
These are clear and powerful statements that cannot be glossed over. Take a moment to reflect on what you have read thus far. As noted in Acts 3:24 above, “all [of YHWH’s] prophets…as many as have spoken…foretold of these days.”
David was one of Israel’s kings. Even he preached the Kingdom of YHWH in Psalm 67:4 where he wrote, “…for You [YHWH] shall judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth.” This obviously is referring to YHWH’s soon coming Kingdom. We know nations are on earth and not in heaven!
Isaiah and Jeremiah
Looking at the prophet Isaiah, he wrote:
Isaiah 9:6-7: 6 For unto us a Child [Yeshua] is born, unto us a Son [of YHWH] is given: and the Government shall be upon His [Yeshua’s] shoulder: and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty Elohim, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His Government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His Kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever.
This prophecy speaks for itself!
Looking at the prophet Jeremiah, he wrote:
Jeremiah 23:5-6: 5 Behold, the days come, says the Master, that I [YHWH] will raise unto David a Righteous Branch [Messiah Yeshua], and a King [Yeshua] shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6 In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is His name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Also read Jeremiah chapters 7 and 8.
The prophet Jeremiah clearly preached the gospel.
Ezekiel and Daniel
In Ezekiel 36, he is writing to the descendants of Israel living today:
Ezekiel 36:24: For I [YHWH] will take you [Israelites] from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries [nations], and will bring you [Israelites] into your own land [Israel].
This is speaking of the Great Second Exodus of ALL Israel that is soon to take place.
Looking at the prophecy written in Ezekiel 36, we see where it describes a period of rebuilding and national prosperity that can only happen after Yeshua’s return:
Ezekiel 36:25-35: 25 Then will I [YHWH] sprinkle clean water upon you [Israelites], and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26 A new heart also will I [YHWH] give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk [be obedient] in My Statutes, and ye shall keep My Judgments, and do them. 28 And ye shall dwell in the land [Israel] that I gave to your fathers [Abraham, Isaac and Jacob]; and ye shall be My People, and I will be your Elohim. 29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you. 30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. 31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe [hate/dislike/despise/abhor] yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities [Torahlessness/Lawlessness] and for your abominations. 32 Not for your sakes do I [YHWH] this, saith the Master YHWH, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel. 33 Thus saith the Master YHWH; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities [Torahlessness/Lawlessness] I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. 34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. 35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
In Daniel 2, it is written:
Daniel 2:44: And in the days of these kings shall the Elohim of heaven set up a Kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the Kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it [YHWH’s Kingdom] shall break in pieces and consume all these [mans] kingdoms, and it [YHWH’s Kingdom] shall stand forever.
It is clear that the prophets Ezekiel and Daniel preached the Kingdom of YHWH.
With the possible exception of Jonah who may have preached the Kingdom of YHWH outside his book, all of the Minor Prophets recorded the gospel of the Kingdom of YHWH in one way or another.
You will remember seeing the phrase “the gospel of the Kingdom of YHWH” is not the only proper way of describing this soon coming government. We have already looked at Genesis 12:3 and Galatians 3:8 where we have seen a difference in the way it is expressed.
In each of the following verses, you will find that they refer either directly or indirectly to the Kingdom of YHWH:
Hosea 2:16: And it [My/YHWH’s Kingdom] shall be at that day, saith YHWH, that thou [Israel] shalt call Me Ishi [My Husband/literally “my Man”]; and shalt call Me no more Baali [My idol, Lord over me, Master].
Hosea 2:19: And I [YHWH] will betroth thee [Israel] unto Me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee [Israel] unto Me [YHWH] in Righteousness, and in Judgment, and in Lovingkindness, and in Mercies.
Hosea 3:5: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek YHWH their Elohim, and David their king; and shall fear YHWH and His goodness in the latter days.
Joel 2:21-27: 21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for YHWH will do great things. 22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. 23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in YHWH your Elohim: for He [YHWH] hath given you [Israel] the former rain moderately, and He [YHWH] will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month [Abib—March/April]. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 And I [YHWH] will restore to you [Israel] the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you. 26 And ye [Israel] shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of YHWH your Elohim, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and My People [Israel-all tribes] shall never be ashamed. 27 And ye shall know that I [YHWH] am in the midst of Israel, and that I am YHWH your Elohim, and none else: and My People shall never be ashamed.
Amos 9:11-15: 11 In that day will I [YHWH] raise up the Tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his [David’s] ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: 12 That they [Israel] may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by My Name, saith YHWH that doeth this. 13 Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. 14 And I [YHWH] will bring again the captivity of My People of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. 15 And I [YHWH] will plant them upon their land [Israel], and they [Israelites] shall no more be pulled up out of their land [Israel] which I [YHWH] have given them, saith YHWH thy Elohim.
Obadiah 21: The deliverers will ascend Mount Zion to judge the mountain of Esau, And the Kingdom will be YHWH’s.
Malachi 3:1-3: 1 Behold, I [YHWH] will send My messenger [John the Immerser/Baptizer], and he shall prepare the way before Me [Yeshua]: and the Master [Yeshua], whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to His Temple, even the Messenger [Yeshua] of the Covenant, Whom ye delight in: behold, He [Yeshua] shall come, saith YHWH of hosts. 2 But who may abide the day of His [Yeshua] coming? and who shall stand when He [Yeshua] appeareth? for He [Yeshua] is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: 3 And He [Yeshua] shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He [Yeshua] shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto YHWH an offering in righteousness.
Micah 4:1-3: 1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of YHWH shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, and to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and He will teach us of His Ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the Torah [Law/YHWH’s Teachings and Instructions] shall go forth of Zion, and the Word of YHWH from Jerusalem. 3 And He [Yeshua] shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
Habakkuk 2:14: For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of YHWH, As the waters cover the sea. This is speaking of the Kingdom.
Zephaniah 3:14-20: 14 Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. 15 YHWH hath taken away thy [Israel’s] judgments, He [YHWH] hath cast out thine [Israel’s] enemy: the king of Israel, even YHWH, is in the midst of thee [Israel]: thou [Israel] shalt not see evil any more. 16 In that day [during the soon coming Kingdom of YHWH] it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou [Israel] not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack [abandon]. 17 YHWH thy Elohim in the midst of thee [Israel] is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing. 18 I [YHWH] will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee [Israel], to whom the reproach of it was a burden. 19 Behold, at that time I [YHWH] will undo all that afflict thee [Israel]: and I [YHWH] will save her [Israel] that halteth, and gather her [Israel] that was driven out; and I [YHWH] will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. 20 At that time will I bring you [Israel] again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith YHWH.
Zechariah 14:1-3: 1 Behold, the day of YHWH cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I [YHWH] will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city [Jerusalem] shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished [raped]; and half of the city [Jerusalem] shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall YHWH go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle.
Zechariah 14:8-9: 8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea [Ancient-east/Dead Sea], and half of them toward the hinder sea [Mediterranean Sea]: in summer and in winter shall it be. 9 And YHWH shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be One YHWH, and His Name One.
Peter was right. “Elohim has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began…the restitution of all things”—that can only occur with the coming of YHWH’s Kingdom/Government here on earth.
There is one final point that needs to be made from this verse. It says, “Elohim [Mighty One/God] has spoken by the mouth of…” The gospel of the Kingdom of YHWH is a message from YHWH. It should be clear that YHWH speaks through whatever kind of servant He is using be they prophets, patriarchs, judges, deacons, preachers of righteousness, kings, apostles or pastors!
His servants always spoke the same message!
Matthew’s account mentions “gospel of the Kingdom” three times. Notice in Matthew where it is written:
Matthew 9:35: And Yeshua went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
In most of Yeshua’s parables, He taught the basics of the Kingdom of YHWH. Matthew alone makes over fifty references to the Kingdom of YHWH.
Luke records that Yeshua commissioned His disciples to preach this same message:
Luke 9:1-2: 1 Then He [Yeshua] called His twelve disciples together... 2 And He sent them to preach the Kingdom of Elohim.
Soon after that, Yeshua sent seventy others to preach, and they also carried the same message of the “Kingdom of YHWH” as noted in Luke 10:
Luke 10:1: After these things Yeshua appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before His face into every city and place, whither He Himself would come.
Luke 10:9: But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
When Yeshua stood before Pontius Pilate, He gave an important clue to understanding the Kingdom of YHWH. He said in John 18:
John 18:36: Yeshua answered, My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My Kingdom is not of this realm.
We will be looking at the details of how YHWH’s Kingdom/Government will be established on earth later in this teaching.
Is there a Separate Gospel of Yeshua Messiah?
Looking again at Mark 1:1: “The beginning of the gospel of Yeshua Messiah.” What is the “gospel of Yeshua”? Is this a different/second gospel? Looking back at what Paul wrote, we could ask, did Paul forget about this gospel?
Absolutely Not! However, most modern pastors/preachers/teachers teach that the gospel of Yeshua Messiah is about Yeshua Messiah. They believe and proclaim that Yeshua is the Kingdom of YHWH and that the gospel of the Kingdom refers exclusively to Him. Taking time to carefully read the Scriptures reveals this is not what is written in the Scriptures. The gospel of Yeshua is His gospel which is His message about the Kingdom of YHWH!
Messengers carry messages. Remember, Yeshua was a Messenger sent from YHWH with an announcement. His message was not about Himself; rather it was about the Kingdom of YHWH! In John 12, Yeshua said:
John 12:49-50: 49 For I [Yeshua] have not spoken of Myself; but the Father which sent Me, He [YHWH] gave Me a Commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that His [YHWH’s] Commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto Me, so I speak.
It is clear that Yeshua functioned as a Messenger/Representative/SPOKESMAN for the coming Kingdom of YHWH.
In John 14, Yeshua said:
John 14:24: The Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s which sent Me.
Yeshua brought YHWH’s message to the people. This should be clear now! Remember what Yeshua stated in Luke 16:
Luke 16:16: The Torah [Law/YHWH’s Teachings and Instructions] and the prophets were [preached] until John: since that time the Kingdom of Elohim is preached.
What IS the Kingdom of YHWH?
In Matthew 6:33, it is written: “But seek you first the Kingdom of YHWH, and His Righteousness…” If we are to seek something as our first goal and focus in life, we must know exactly what it is!
The Shem Tov Hebrew version of Matthew 6 reads much better than our Greek version. Matthew chapter 6 contains what many call “The Lord’s Prayer” which is also known as the “Disciples Prayer.” In most other languages it is called the “Our Father” prayer so titled after its opening words:
Matthew 6:9-13: 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father in heaven, May Your name be sanctified. 10 May Your Kingdom be blessed. Your will shall be done in heaven and on earth. 11 Give us our bread continually. 12 Forgive us the debt of our sins as we forgive the debt of those who sin against us. 13 Do not bring us into the hands of a test, and protect us from all evil. Amen.
For those interested in learning more about “The Lord’s Prayer” and getting a deeper meaning and understanding of what this prayer is really instructing us to do, I highly recommend purchasing the book titled “A Prayer to Our Father” written by Nehemia Gordon and Keith Johnson. You can get the book from the following link:
Yeshua instructs all believers in Messiah Yeshua to pray “after this manner,” and then continues by adding the phrase, “May Your Kingdom be blessed.” Knowing what we are praying for will make our prayers far more effective and meaningful!
We should all stop here briefly and ask ourselves: What is the Kingdom of YHWH? Again, the word Kingdom simply means “government.” We all realize you cannot have a kingdom/government without a nation to govern. Therefore, a kingdom/government is at least one nation with a government.
There are four basic and necessary components to any kingdom:
(1) There has to be land, property or a territory no matter how large or small it may be. In other words, there must be a specific and definite set of boundaries establishing the size of the kingdom.
(2) There has to be a ruler, king, monarch or governor leading the government.
(3) There has to be people or subjects living within the territory governed.
(4) There needs to be a system of laws and rules to live by and a basic structure of government to govern the people.
No kingdom is complete without all these basic and necessary components.
We have to ask how this applies to YHWH’s Kingdom. Are we to look at the soon coming Kingdom of YHWH literally, and physically as being a place here on earth with people, laws and a presiding ruler over the people?
Most people do not understand these basic elements of the Kingdom of YHWH. Some believe that this Kingdom resides in the hearts of men. Others believe that it is wherever you find a particular church. Still others believe that it is Yeshua Himself. Some believe that it is on earth now. With others believing that it is yet to come but not understanding how or when this will occur.
This is why we see confusion within the Body of Messiah Yeshua!
One MUST Be Born Again INTO the Kingdom Of YHWH
Paul wrote in Colossians 1:18 that Yeshua, after His resurrection, became “the firstborn from the dead,” and in Romans 8:29 it is written “that He [Yeshua] might be the firstborn among many brethren.” When connected, these two verses show that Yeshua is the firstborn from the dead and that many others will follow later. We have to ask when and into what will these others be born?
In John chapter 3, Yeshua said to Nicodemus:
John 3:3: Truly, truly, I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of YHWH.
Continuing in John chapter 3:
John 3:6: That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
We must grasp and believe what is written above.
Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians:
1 Corinthians 15:50-52: 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of YHWH; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
The resurrection of the dead will occur when Yeshua returns to earth. There must be no misunderstanding of this great event. People who were once fleshly human beings will be changed into spirit beings. They will be born again or a better translation would be born from above and enter into the Kingdom of YHWH.
John 4:24 clearly states that “YHWH is a Spirit.” Under YHWH, Yeshua will lead the Kingdom of His Father which will be composed of resurrected spirit beings and those who did not die who were changed in a twinkling of an eye. At Yeshua’s return, He being a member of the Family of YHWH, will have many younger “brothers and sisters” who will be qualified to rule with Him in YHWH’s Kingdom.
We know there is a plant kingdom consisting of all plant life, an animal kingdom with all animal life, human kingdoms and an angelic kingdom. There is also the Kingdom of YHWH which will consist of spirit beings.
Notice Genesis 1:26 where it is written: “And Elohim said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness.” Referring to Themselves, the One speaking says, “Us,” “Our,” “Our.” This verse reveals that there is more than one Being in the Godhead. In fact, there are two! In this Scripture, the Hebrew word for God is Elohim. This is what is known as a uniplural term like group, team, committee or family, with all of these terms representing one entity.
Thus, we can see that the Scriptures teach us that there is One Elohim/Mighty One and within that One Elohim/Mighty One there is the Father and the Son with many more children to be added later. The first time that YHWH will add more to His Family is at the time of His Kingdom when it is established here on earth.
At that time as it is written in Hebrews 2:10: “many sons shall be brought unto glory” through the work of the “Captain of our salvation.” Hebrews 2:11 says that Yeshua “is not ashamed to call them brethren,” those of whom Yeshua is called the “firstborn.”
Do you see what is described here? A true Believer’s goal, their destiny is to be born into the coming Kingdom/Government of YHWH as a spirit being who will rule under Messiah Yeshua. What could be more wonderful and glorious than for Believer’s to look forward to ruling with Yeshua in YHWH’s Kingdom?
CONDITIONS to Enter INTO the Kingdom of YHWH
In Matthew 19:17, Yeshua said to a young rich man inquiring about eternal life, “…if you will enter into life, keep [obey/do] the Commandments.” Yeshua explained that one must keep the Ten Commandments of which He specifically cited five of the Ten Commandments within Matthew 19:
Matthew 19:18-19: 18 He [the rich young man] saith unto Him [Yeshua], Which? Yeshua said, (1—the 6th Commandment) Thou shalt do no murder, (2—the 7th Commandment) Thou shalt not commit adultery, (3—the 8th Commandment) Thou shalt not steal, (4—the 9th Commandment) Thou shalt not bear false witness, (5—the 5th Commandment) 19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, (This Commandment sums up the five Commandments noted in this passage) Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
The first four of the Ten Commandments are summed up in Matthew 22:37-38 when Yeshua said: “Yeshua said unto him, Thou shalt love YHWH thy with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.” Yeshua summed up the last six of the Ten Commandments in Matthew 22:39-40: “And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these Two Commandments hang all the Torah [Law/YHWH’s Teachings and Instructions] and the prophets.” Yeshua has taken the Two Commandments which can be broken down to Ten Commandments. From the Ten Commandments, we can break those down even more so into 613 Commandments. The Two Commandments are on the surface. To get a little bid more detail on those Two Commandments we look at the Ten Commandments. To take it to a much deeper level, we look at the 613 Commandments given us in the Torah. A lot is being communicated by Yeshua in these few verses.
In Romans 6:23, Paul wrote, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of Elohim is eternal life through Yeshua Messiah our Master.” You receive wages from your job. These wages constitute payment for work you have done. Wages are something that you earn. Death is what we all have “earned” through our sins! If Yeshua had not paid this penalty/debt for us, the final “paycheck” if you will, would be all people would receive death which would be the ultimate “pink slip.” On the other hand, salvation is a free gift. We cannot earn it.
What is sin? Since committing sin results in death, wouldn’t it be a good idea to know what sin is? 1 John 3:4 tells us what sin is: “Sin is the transgression [the act of violating/not guarding/keeping/doing] of the Torah [Law/YHWH’s Teachings and Instructions].” This is the same Law that the young rich man was told he must obey to inherit eternal life.
Do you remember Yeshua’s words in Mark 1:15 where He said: “Repent you, and believe the gospel.”? To Repent is to turn from sinning. Sinning is breaking YHWH’s Torah/Laws/Teachings and Instructions. A true Believer is one who has repented/turned away from sinning against the Torah and starts keeping/doing/obeying His Ten Commandments, and then be baptized according to Acts 2:38 where it says: “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yeshua Messiah for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Set-Apart [Holy] Spirit.”
Through a lifetime of overcoming sin, the Believer qualifies for (though he/she can never “earn”) salvation and spiritual birth into the Kingdom of YHWH.
Preaching The Kingdom of YHWH Today
In Matthew Chapters 24 and 25 we have what is known as the Olivet Discourse/Prophecy where Yeshua was asked about those events that would be the signs of His Second Coming and of “the end of the world [age].” He answered by saying there will be a number of different trends and conditions which will occur first. We read in Matthew 24:14 where Yeshua stated, “And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” The true gospel was prophesied to be preached until “the end come.” This tells us that someone will be preaching the gospel until Yeshua returns to establish His Kingdom here on earth.
The gospel is being preached/taught in some Churches of Almighty YHWH today in various forms/ways!
The Kingdom of YHWH is Coming
Yeshua will soon return to earth and establish YHWH’s Kingdom here on earth. No man has in the past nor presently been able to single handedly set-up a world-ruling government that works. United States Congressmen, if honest, will freely admit that a perfect government will not happen here in America or any other country for that matter because man is imperfect. They will tell you, it is not possible. Thankfully, this is not what Yeshua will do when He comes to establish YHWH’s Kingdom here on earth.
Looking at what Daniel wrote:
Daniel 2:44: And in the days of these kings shall the Elohim of heaven set up a Kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the Kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these [man-made] kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
The Kingdom of YHWH will reign over the entire earth. This means ALL nations and the resurrected saints shall share this reign with Yeshua.
Yeshua clearly stated in Matthew 5:5 what is known as the “Sermon on the Mount” that “the meek [humble/gentle/modest/mild] shall inherit the earth.” When Yeshua stated this, He was quoting Psalm 37:11, where David said exactly the same thing.
Now let’s look at Daniel 7 and examine three separate verses. First, we will look at Daniel 7:18:
Daniel 7:18: But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom [of men], and possess the Kingdom [of YHWH] forever, even forever and ever.
Daniel 7:22: Until the Ancient of Days [Yeshua here, and YHWH in verse 13] came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the Kingdom [of YHWH].
Daniel 7:27: And the Kingdom [of YHWH] and dominion, and the greatness of the Kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and all dominions [rulers] shall serve and obey Him [Yeshua].
It should be clear here that Daniel understood that it will be the saints who will be reigning on the earth!
Now, let’s take a close look at three separate passages in the book of Revelation. Through John, Yeshua states:
Revelation 3:21: To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me [Yeshua] in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father [YHWH] in His throne.
Revelation 2:26-27: And he that overcomes…to him will I [Yeshua] give power over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron.
Revelation 5:10: and [YHWH] has made us…kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Has anyone ever shared with you about any of these verses? Probably not!
No wonder when Yeshua was on trial for His life, He said in John 18:
John 18:36: My Kingdom is not of this world [currently ruled by the flesh of mankind]: if My Kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is My Kingdom not from here.
Pilate asked Yeshua in John 18:37: “Are you a King then?” Yeshua answered him by saying, “To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world…”
Yeshua understood throughout His life that He was born to be a King as we read in Luke 1:
Luke 1:31-33: 31 And, behold, thou [Mary] shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son, and shalt call his name YESHUA. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and YHWH Elohim shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: 33 And He shall reign over the house of Jacob [Israel] for ever; and of His Kingdom there shall be no end.
The prophet Isaiah was also inspired and he recorded the following:
Isaiah 2:2-4: 2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of YHWH's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the Elohim of Jacob [Israel]; and He [Yeshua] will teach us of His Ways [from His Torah/Law/YHWH’s Teachings and Instructions], and we will walk [keep/do/obey] in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the Torah [Law/Teachings and Instructions], and the Word of YHWH from Jerusalem. 4 And He [Yeshua] shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
The same prophecy is repeated in Micah:
Micah 4:1-3: 1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of YHWH shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, and to the house of the Elohim of Jacob [Israel]; and He [Yeshua] will teach us of His ways, and we will walk [keep/do/obey] in His paths: for the Torah [Law/YHWH’s Teachings and Instructions] shall go forth of Zion, and the Word of YHWH from Jerusalem. 3 And He [Yeshua] shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
In front of the United Nations Building is the sculptured image of a large man forging a plow from a sword as shown to the left here. Most people do not realize the enormous prophecy this famous sculpture is communicating to them.
Yeshua came to be a KING. When His reign begins, world peace will literally “break out” along with worldwide happiness, prosperity, abundance and supreme joy! No man-made government has ever in the past or present been able to bring these things to even one country on earth.
This soon-coming Kingdom is the core of the very gospel that Yeshua brought. Do you believe it? Will you believe it?
Yeshua’s message to the world is:
I hope this teaching has helped to explain what the Kingdom of Heaven/YHWH is.
I am One Crying In The Wilderness!

Job 25 – 31 Acts 17
“Patterns of Evidence THE RED SEA MIRACLE II” (part 2 of 2) took “sleeping-on-it” for it to soak into my being enough for me to get that AH-HA! moment. After watching it last evening, and please pardon me for saying so, I was a bit disappointed and still was when I awoke this morning; HOWEVER, as I was reading Job chapters 25 through 31, ABBA took another “scale” from my eyes — it’s all about “crossing over.” WHERE this event even occurred is very important; and, few will ever recognize it. And HOW the Red Sea was parted is still a HUGE mystery to most folks — yet, silently, Job whispered to me, this morning in chapter 27, how The EAST WIND could move 900’ deep water into “walls” on the right hand and on the left. Was this just another spring storm with gale force wind pushing waves of water; OR, was this The BREATH of The ALMIGHTY?! Job refers to this “east wind”
Job 27:21 The east wind carrieth him away [even as Elijah was taken up in a “whirlwind” in 2 Kings 2:2*], and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place. [this is not your basic micro-burst or town-leveling tornado — this is The WIND of The ALMIGHTY!]
*2 Kings 2:1 And it came to pass, when YeHoVaH would take up Elijah into Heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal. ....
2 Kings 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into Heaven.
Yah, yah, yah, we can debate the Earth as spherical or flat and whether it is 6,000 years old or millions and billions of years old — but, the fact remains that it was The BREATH of The ALMIGHTY that SPOKE it into existence and HIS BREATH is POWERFUL!!!
Why are we even here, on this planet? As Job is scraping the sores of his flesh tabernacle, from head to toe, with sharp broken pieces of pottery — in total agony, Job is wrestling with this question of WHY — while those religious *#&#* are compounding Job’s grief! And it appalls me that those same “ministers” today are saying that we are so special that we will never see the GREAT Tribulation, which is bearing down on us at avalanche speed! As I am very possibly one of the TRIBULATION Saints, I plead (with Job) for ELohim’s mercy and grace to empower me to “endure to the end” (1 Thessalonians 3:12-13) “unblameable in holiness” and in “love” for all the people around me.
In the movie, highly educated “Christians,” by their own testimony, doubt the depth of the Red Sea crossing site and they doubt the POWER of the EAST WIND that parted the water into WALLS on the right hand and on the left and dried the bottom of the sea for a NO-MUD crossing. And now, as I relax, in the presence of Job and listen to him as he is speaking:
Job 27:19 The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.
Job 27:20 Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night.
Job 27:21 The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.
Yes, this is speaking of the destruction of the wicked, even as the entire Egyptian army, while that same “east wind” prepared The WAY for ABBA’s people. Please notice that this event is so ENORMOUS that it will be remembered to THIS DAY! How many strong wind gusts of 200 years ago do you remember? NADA! THIS east wind IS the POWER of GOD!
You can bet your sweet bippie it’s not the god(s) of the Greeks!
And this is precisely what our Apostle Paul is saying:
Acts 17:22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens [of Greece and the Greeks, of course], I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
Acts 17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, HIM declare I unto you.
Only when the Greeks “cross over” leaving behind their Pagan gods to follow the Instructions of THE ONLY LIVING GOD in HIS LIFE of great abundance — do they/we become HEBREWS (not Jews, even as Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were not Jews).
here is a brief excerpt from an excellent teaching:
God’s chosen people identified themselves as Hebrews both in the Old Testament(Jon 1:9) and in the New(Philip 3:5). Abram was the first person to be called a Hebrew, even though he was from Ur of the Chaldaeans (Gen 11:31). So what does “Hebrew” really mean?
The word Hebrew in its simplest sense means “one from beyond”.
H5680 – עברי – ‛ibrı̂y – Hebrew Brown-Driver-Briggs Dictionary Definition: Hebrew = “one from beyond”
Another word connected with “Ivri” (Hebrew) is “Avar” which means “pass over”. All of these words are connected as the root (Ayin-Bet-Resh עבר) in Hebrew stays the same.
Yes, I am a Hebrew — one who is in the process of crossing over (I have left the paganism of Egypt and am in this wilderness listening to our CREATOR and learning HIS WAY of LIFE), even as Israel crossed over from Egypt (an ensample of Earth) to the Promised Land (and ensample of Heaven) Where they RETURNED to the land of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as I will soon RETURN to my eternal FATHER Whom I departed from and squandered my wealth in this “far country,” being the prodigal son that I am — however — I have repented (turned 180 degrees, back to the GOD I departed from) and am currently en route back to HIM, learning HIS WAY of LIFE in TRUTH (John 14:6), as i go, reaching for the tzitzit of THAT JEW , even The KING of the Jews, Yeshua ha Mashiyach (Zechariah 8:23).
The RED SEA MIRACLE II ends with “two witnesses.” They both SAW the gold chariot wheel on the bottom of the Red Sea crossing site. The forensic scientist lady explains a bit about detecting the credibility of witnesses. Interesting! The HOLY SPIRIT cannot be examined under a microscope or through a telescope — The HOLY SPIRIT just IS! Do miracles still happen? The fellow who fell through the ice and drowned, his mother, all the medical staff including the doctor, all seem to think so.
Many of us have had supernatural experiences. I have and so has MaraDale, as when an angel gave her a ride home from a very dangerous ghetto situation, where she accidentally found herself walking, in a major metropolitan city. Are all these things mere random tosses of the dice? Or, are these things very real and specific for grabbing our attention and directing us back HOME?! “What must I do to be saved?” Does the book of Matthew have a preface? YES! The book immediately preceding Matthew is telling us about our Messiah! Lookie:
Malachi 2:1 And now, O ye priests
[Who ARE these priests? Our Apostle Peter is telling us: 1 Peter 2:9-10 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into HIS marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.],
[Malachi continues preparing us for the book of Matthew by saying] this Commandment is for you. If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto MY name, saith [H3068] YeHoVaH of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces [eeeeeooooo!], even the dung of your solemn feasts [Pagan holidays, like eating unclean swine flesh on that festival of coloring Eostre eggs (as the pagans did/do with the blood of sacrificed infants) do the research — CHECK IT OUT! and Malachi continues]; and one shall take you away with it. And ye shall know that I have sent this Commandment unto you, that MY Covenant might be with Levi, saith YeHoVaH of hosts. MY Covenant was with HIM [our Messiah] of life and peace; and I gave them to HIM [YESHUA, YHVH’s Salvation] for the fear wherewith HE feared ME, and was afraid before MY name. The Law of Truth [TORAH as defined in Psalm 119:142 and Strong’s H8451] was in HIS mouth, and iniquity [law-less-ness, A-nomia, without TORAH the Instructions for LIFE given to us by our LIVING CREATOR! This law-less-ness] was not found in HIS lips: HE walked with ME in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity [defiance of TORAH]. For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the Law [H8451 TORAH] at HIS [Malachi is telling us that “Jesus” YESHUA = YHVH’s Salvation, YESHUA’s] mouth: for HE is the messenger of YeHoVaH of hosts [that Moses already told us would come and we MUST shema = hear and obey (Acts 3:22)]. But ye are departed out of The WAY; ye have caused many to stumble at the Law [H8451 TORAH]; ye have corrupted the Covenant of Levi, saith YeHoVaH of hosts. Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept MY WAYs, but have been partial in the law. Have we not all one father? hath not one God [H410 ALE = strength, almighty deity, Who] created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the Covenant of our fathers?
WHY? Malachi is asking, WHY do we object to our CREATOR’s Law, by which ALL people may LIVE? The world is running amok with anarchy = law-less-ness!! And, ya know what? Only recently has my greatest GIFT of the HOLY SPIRIT become visible to me, the desire and the ability to be obedient to my CREATOR — it is the joy of my Life! What makes you happy? What gift of the HOLY SPIRIT do you cherish most?
Yes, We are currently entrapped on a beach very similar to that of Nuweiba, encaged in ribs of bone, entrapped between rock cliffs on either side and a canyon behind us (as Wadi Watir) with globalists bearing down on us at avalanche speed; and I, for one, believe that THAT PROPHET WHOM we must shema (hear and obey) even Yeshua ha Mashiyach (Jesus the Christ) will soon open The WAY for us to be crossing over to The PROMISED LAND! It’s getting scary; but, YIPPEE!!! HalleluYAH!!!
YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen.
Shema (Hear & Obey) YeHoVaH's instructions for Yeshua is coming soon. Read ALL YeHoVaH'S BOOK!

Volume 1 Guests include Caryl Matrisciana, Jason Carlson, Eric Douma, Brian Flynn, Michael Gendron, Tom McMahon, Johanna Michaelsen, Roger Oakland, Chris Quintana, Warren Smith, Ray Yungen, and other cameos. Video journalist, Caryl Matrisciana, author of Out of India, interviews friends, well-known authors, and experts in this bold and challenging DVD. Caryl examines the intrusion of the 60’s and 70’s New Age Movement, steeped in its pagan eastern mysticism, and traces its morphing over the last four decades—from its repackaging as the “self help” psychology and holistic health movements of the 80s, to its seeker friendly, megachurch appearance in the 90s, to its coming out in the 21st century as “the new spirituality.” Today’s new brand of Christianity has a different gospel and is targeting the younger generation with a so-called hip, cool, experiential spirituality, much of which is embracing the mysticism of Roman Catholicism with its ecumenical philosophy of uniting people from all faiths to work together to bring about a new world of peace and harmony. The dangerous result of this new spirituality in the church is the rise of today’s “Christianized” occultism. It is stretching its tentacles around the souls of unsuspecting youth, setting them up for the lie that subjective emotions of “power” and “experience” are “feelings” to be held higher than an objective walk in the Christian faith, based on truth found in the pure Word of God. Learn what Scripture teaches about the times we live in, the ways in which Christians are being seduced away from biblical truth, and the methods used by the New Spirituality to usher in the counterfeit kingdom of God on earth.

There are many feminists and others that assert the Creator and His Word is no only misogynistic but promotes the reducing of women to little more than chattel, property. Let’s examine their supporting Scripture verses to test their claims in the proper cultural and biblical context.
Here we explore the Hebrew root of spirit to gain a better understanding of it.
Our Creator is a Father who is raising what will ultimately be an enormous Family. He loves the individual Family members—His children—and is pleased when they get along and stay out of trouble. His supreme goal calls for an extremely high set of standards for their behavior: He wants His sons and daughters to develop and display extraordinary levels of virtue as they strive to produce plentiful, righteous fruit (Ezekiel 17:23; Matthew 5:16; 13:23; Colossians 1:10).
A crucial element for attaining these high standards is knowledge of God’s law, which provides for discernment between good and evil (Proverbs 15:14; Romans 12:2; Philippians 1:9-11; Colossians 1:9-10; I Thessalonians 5:21; Hebrews 5:14). Such discernment proves difficult in our complex, deceived civilization, where every individual defines right and wrong according to his or her own judgment (Deuteronomy 12:8; Judges 17:6; Proverbs 12:15; 21:2).
However, the authentic and faithful Christian must yield to what is right in God’s eyes (Leviticus 19:37; Deuteronomy 12:28; John 15:10, 14), which entails another crucial element: a sincere conviction for good works driven by a self-sacrificial desire for the welfare of others (John 15:8; Ephesians 2:10; Titus 2:12-14). Such excellence of character not only glorifies God and reflects His nature, but God also requires it for all who wish to enter His Kingdom.
The People, The Land, The Torah
In this revelation packed video we reveal the inseparable connection between the people of Elohim, the land, and the Torah. Find out how the promises YAH made to Israel of receiving the fulness of blessings in the land are fulfilled in those who believe in Yeshua Messiah and follow Him in His Torah obedient lifestyle.
The Natsarim: The Elect of the End Times
Christian Truthers: Let us investigate, and attempt to truly reveal not only why the historic persecutions of "Christians" took place, but perhaps even more importantly, the TRUE NAME of WHO was being persecuted in those days. You might just find that there’s a prophetic significance to knowing the true name of the first followers of the way as they were called when the ekklesia was founded, and how prophecy reveals what they will be called in the time of the end - the Natsarim.

Do Miracles Still Happen? | Shabbat Night Live
The Book of the Acts is filled with stories of miracle after miracle. But do miracles still happen today? And if so, why don’t we see the spectacular things we read about in Acts? Michael Rood reveals the answer along with a miraculous story of his own!
The people on earth at the time of ANTICHRIST AND THE FINAL SOLUTION who have rejected God are called, as we have seen, “earth dwellers.” They have become totally susceptible to the deluding influences of demons. The deception is full blown, and the people will wonder in awe of the things they see, thus will go ever deeper into worship of Antichrist.
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. (Revelation 13:14)
It is documented that throughout the ages people have been easily seduced by those claiming to produce miracles. It seems that the more people discount and even outright deny or mock the miracles reported in God’s Word, the more easily they become seduced by false wonder-workers. Such will be the case during the Tribulation era. People will deny God but grasp the demonic manifestations that delude.
Neither Satan nor his cohorts, the fallen angels, can produce miracles created by their own power. They don’t have that power. Only God does. They can, however, manipulate natural matter to produce phenomena that mankind perceives to be miraculous activity.
Miracles must always be tested in relation to their purpose and fidelity to Scripture (Isaiah 8:20). Deluding miracles, the Bible warns, will become more and more manifest as Christ’s Second Advent nears.
Again, Henry Morris writes:
The Lord Jesus Christ warned: “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:24). Paul, speaking probably of this same false prophet, says his “coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders” (2 Thessalonians 2:9). His miracles are lying miracles, in that their purpose is to cause men to “believe the lie” (2 Thessalonians 2:11) that the “man of sin,” with his image “sitting in the temple of God” is, as he is claiming, truly God (2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4).[i]
The False Prophet will, through delusion and pseudo miracles, bring about the evilest of all of Satan’s plans for humanity. From it will burst forth Antichrist’s own Final Solution, one that will make Adolf Hitler’s seem mild by comparison. It will eventuate in the harlot religious system prophesied in Revelation chapter 17.
Antichrist, when he arrives on the world geopolitical scene, will be in the most deceptive disguise ever to obscure truth. One author of the new book Antichrist and the Final Solution, Terry James, put it this way:
The first time I saw a television show was around 1950. Our neighbors, an older couple, invited me in each afternoon and allowed me to sit in their living room, with the grandmotherly lady, Omie, serving me home-baked cookies and a “pop” as we called soft drinks in Illinois during those days. It was heaven on earth for those thirty minutes to a boy of eight.
With the “William Tell Overture” thumping in the background, there galloped a huge, white horse, with his rider, who was wearing an equally white hat and a black mask. He was followed closely behind by a pinto horse with a man in fringed buckskin aboard.
That’s right. It was Silver and Scout, carrying the Lone Ranger and Tonto, his ever-present companion.
On every program, the masked man would ride to the rescue in one situation or another. I remember sitting on pins and needles wondering if he would arrive in time during each episode. He always did, of course.
In the genre of heroic fiction, the protagonist, the “good guy,” is frequently depicted as the man in the white hat—at least symbolically. We hear these heroes referred to in general terms as the “man on a white horse.” He rides onto the scene with the purpose of righting all wrongs—setting everything as it should be once again.
In those episodes of the Lone Ranger, there was always a terrible situation for him to rectify. They were real nail-biters, even with the buffering of cookies and pop to help alieve the angst.
Petrus Romanus Warns That GAIA ‘Is Groaning’ And Humanity Must Immediately Bow Down And Beg Her Forgiveness, ‘Listen To The Land’ And Assume Your ‘Correct Place In The Web Of Life’ Orders Head Of Rome
In his message for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, the pontiff has called for repentance, insisting we have “broken the bonds of our relationship with creation.” “Our constant demand for growth and an endless cycle of production and consumption are exhausting the natural world,” the pope laments. “Forests are leached, topsoil erodes, fields fail, deserts advance, seas acidify and storms intensify.” “Creation is groaning!” he concludes. The solution to these problems is learning to “listen to the land,” he states, and to occupy our correct place in the “web of life.”
For more than 2,500 years, giant human-made mounds of earth and stone, some as high as a six-story building, have stood in the southwestern suburbs of Jerusalem. Their purpose: unknown. Their origins: unclear. Their builders: hotly debated. In late July, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced the results of a much more thorough excavation conducted on one of these mysterious mounds. Under this one, archaeologists uncovered remains of a 2,700-year-old building and dozens of stamped jar handles, indicating the site was likely connected to the administration of the Kingdom of Judah in the First Temple period. But while the findings are fascinating and bountiful, they raise more questions than they answer. Why was an administrative center from biblical times buried under a humungous heap of stones and soil? And were similar coverups the reason why the other mounds nearby were built? Most are clustered in a fairly small area of a few square kilometers, mainly on the ridge overlooking the biblical Valley of Rephaim – a proximity that has led archaeologists to read them as a unified phenomenon, whatever its significance may be…
Urgent Prophetic Alert: America, Prepare for November

Are you ready for the Coming Kingdom? It’s just on the other side of the outpouring of the Greater Glory that is right ahead of us.
Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, will make you Greater-Glory-ready and equip you to represent heaven on earth when the move of God comes. You will want to be in the thick of it!
Here’s a brief excerpt:
Did you ever wonder why God isn’t doing something? You see America being torn apart, battered into submission, and molded into some ugly weak version of her former self. All in the name of progress. When the moral bottom of society becomes the loudest voices of influence, shouldn’t God act?
I believe He is acting. But it is happening in a wholly unexpected way. He is at war to save our nation. The real question is are you ready to understand what your assignment is in His war to save America?

Satanic rage, in our view, exploded following the presidential election of 2016 in America. Never in the history of the nation had there been an all-out effort to destroy a presidency. The effort was clear from the very outset—even before the inauguration took place in January 2017.
The United States was clearly on track to having its sovereignty dissolved in order to meld with the burgeoning internationalist blueprint for a changed world order. A new president declared he planned to “drain the swamp” and “Make America great again.” Draining the swamp meant removing entrenched bureaucrats who wanted the nation to continue down the road toward globalism. Making America great again meant that the new president wanted to bring the country to the full achievement capacity he saw as still within America’s people.
We saw the development of the term “deep state,” the name given the cabal within the US government and other governments of the world devoted to creating a one-world system of control. Although this term and the considerations behind it are called conspiratorial lunacy and even worse, the evidence that the deep state exists is indelibly etched within the fabric of geopolitics.
America’s intelligence agencies—FBI, CIA, NSA, and others—in conjunction with a political party in opposition to the newly elected president, were caught in efforts to falsely accuse him in order to, we charge, achieve a coup d’état. The mainstream news—networks and cable outlets that are supposed to report, not create, the news—joined in to try to bring President Donald J. Trump down.
One of the most noted scholars in eschatology, Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost, presented a perspective on the matter of the covenant of Daniel 9: 26 and the turmoil that results from Israel’s accepting this false peace agreement:
According to Daniel 9:26–27 the prince of the Roman empire will make a covenant with Israel for a seven year period. This covenant evidently restores Israel to a place among the nations of the world and the integrity of Israel is guaranteed by the Roman powers. This is not only an attempt to settle the long standing dispute among the nations as to Israel’s claim to Palestine, but is also a satanic imitation of the fulfillment of the Abrahamic covenant which gave Israel title deed to the land. This action is pictured by John (Rev. 6:2) as a rider going forth to conquer, to whom sovereignty is given by peaceful negotiations. This condition exists for three and one-half years, after which the covenant is broken by the Roman authorities and the period known as the great tribulation (Matt. 24:21) begins. This tribulation on the earth is evidently caused by Satan, who has been cast out of heaven into the earth at the middle of the tribulation period (Rev. 12:9). He goes forth in great wrath (Rev. 12:12) to attack the remnant of Israel and the saints of God (Rev. 12:17). The Satanic activity that moves nations in those days is clearly depicted by John when he says:
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty” [Revelation 16:13–14].
This is not to infer that this period is not the period of God’s wrath upon sinful men, but it does show that God, to pour out His wrath, permits Satan to execute a program in his wrath against the whole world.
There are a number of theories as to the events in the campaign of Armageddon: (1) Armageddon will be a conflict between the Roman empire and the northern confederacy; (2) it will be a conflict between the Roman empire and the kings of the east, or the Asiatic powers; (3) Armageddon will be a conflict between all nations and God; (4) it will be a conflict between four great world powers; (5) it will be a conflict between the Roman empire, Russia, and the Asiatic powers; (6) it will exclude Russia, but will take place between the Roman, eastern, and northern powers which will exclude Russia, based on the theory that Ezekiel 38 and 39 takes place in the millennium; (7) Russia is the only aggressor at Armageddon, based on the theory that there will be no revived form of the Roman empire. One can see what a wide divergence of opinion there is as to the chronology of events in this campaign.[i]
What is waiting for the US and UK in Bible prophecy? Ezekiel was commissioned by God to watch over them and they were blessed with power and glory but in the last days it is very clear to see the once mighty and powerful countries are just observers of the plunder coming before the day of Jehovah!
An unlikely victory, the British defeat the mighty Spanish Armada, Philip James De Louthberg
What is really happening in the US this year, is there a reason behind the insanity? Is there a way of knowing where the country is going and how the insanity will end? A pamphlet written by Herbert W Armstrong many years ago appears to have the answer. After an incredible journey of wealth and power, promised by God more than 4,000 years ago Tarshish and her young lions, England, America, Canada Australia and New Zealand will simply look on as the mighty Gog threatens to destroy their ally and friend Israel in the last days
The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy
To find out the answer we have to go back around 4,000 years to when a man called Jacob was born, who later was given the name Israel and is regarded as a Patriarch of the Israelites and so is an important figure in Abrahamic religions, such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Jacob first appears in the Book of Genesis, the son of Isaac and Rebecca, the grandson of Abraham, Sarah and Bethuel, the nephew of Ishmael. Jacob is said to have had twelve sons by four women, his wives, Leah and Rachel, and his concubines, Bilhah and Zilpah, who were, in order of their birth, Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, and Benjamin, all of whom became the heads of their own family groups, later known as the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

When the Jews entered the Promised Land, the12 tribes settled in a different region and eventually the tribes split into two kingdoms. The southern kingdom was called Judah and consisted of two tribes, Judah and Benjamin. The remaining 10 tribes formed the northern kingdom and were called Israel.
In 721 BC, the Assyrians conquered Israel, the northern kingdom and deported the Israelites to an area north of the Euphrates River between the Black and Caspian Seas. (2 Kings 17). The Ten tribes who were deported never returned to the northern nation of Israel after their captivity.
