YHVH YHWH; WHY THE “V” IN YAHVAH website
THE CHALLENGE OF SCRIPTURAL TRUTH!
Recently, YeshaYahu (IsaiYah) 64:7 came to mind: 'And there is none that calleth upon Thy Name, that stirreth-up himself to take hold of Thee..' Previously, the prophet stated in 63:16 'Doubtless Thou art our Father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Yisraeyl acknowledge us not: Thou, O YaHVaH (not l-o-r-d) art our Father, our Redeemer; Thy Name is from everlasting".
The newest response to Scripture truth is, "IT DOESN'T MATTER"! Perhaps we ought to ask, "Then, what DOES matter?"
For example a believer might open a discussion to encourage someone with, "Messiah's Name is of utmost important. We now know what His Name is not.
Here is the response of today's AWOL Christian: "It doesn't matter." Acts 3-5 and Acts 4:12 "There is no other Name given among men whereby we must be saved!" YaHVaH the Father says, "It DOES matter".
Whether we quote the Scriptures about Torah, the law, the Feast Days, Clean and Unclean, pagan holidays and above all, His Name, YaHVaH and YaHOSHA Messiah, the pat-answer is "It doesn't matter" or i.e. "Whatever!!" It doesn't matter for or whatever doctrine they disagree with. What if YaHVaH tells THEM "Whatever"?
"BONDAGE OF NEW WORLD ORDER" by TsephanYah
Some of the traditions of men are leading our nation into the bondage of the New World order. Messiah came to free us from the bondage of the world, preaching the kingdom of His Father YaHVaH. It is the same "Gospel of Repentance" which will set us free from the snare of the fowler. Come out of Babylon!
Let’s read JeremiYah 2 and be ready to serve YaHVaH in the Spirit and in His Word. We love Him and thus we desire to obey His Word, The Scriptures. Hallel YaHVaH! So let us study the Word.
JeremiYah 2:13 "For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the Fountain of Living Waters, AND hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water."
:22 For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith YaHVaH the Eternal Elohim.
We pray to the King of kings and wonder why prayers don’t answer? Ring the bells in heaven, or pull down on the rope. We demand that He carry us through all this land. Then once a week, we look up and say, “Thanks! Now where is the rest you promised us?”
:23 How canst thou say, 'I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim?' See thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done; thou art a swift dromedary traversing her ways.
Here is what Evangelicals seem to say about His Name:
“Oh! Let’s just forget about His Name, and worship Him. .”
JeremiYah 23 especially verses 26 and 27.
:26 “How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? Yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
:27 Which think to CAUSE MY PEOPLE TO FORGET MY NAME by their dreams, which they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Baal.” Search the word ‘Baal’ - it means Lord. So, they argue, “Its a little “L” as in lord. That is just drawing at straws, an invalid argument. Read the whole chapter JeremiYah 23. Then..
HoseYah 2:17 "For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by THEIR name."
to learn more about the Father's Name "YaHVaH".
Seek Him with our whole heart and mind. Seek for the ancient paths before man messed it up. JeremiYah 6:16 “Thus saith YaHVaH, stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said ‘We will not walk therein’.”
They will tell you that “Our Church has no problem; we have a good leader”. What is on your heart when you leave the service? Do they say anything positive about YaHVaH’s Torah? Or do they make up their own doctrines and laws of men?
YeremiYaH 17:4 "..You have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn forever. Thus saith YaHVaH 'Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm and whose heart departs from YaHVaH.
:07 Blessed in the man that trusteth in YaHVaH and whose hope YaHVaH is." They have forsaken YaHVaH the Fountain of Living Waters.
THE ISSUE IS THE SABBATH FOR THOSE ALREADY SAVED
:21 "Thus saith YaHVaH, Take heed to yourselves and bear no burden on the Sabbath Day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem; neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the Sabbath Day, neither do you any work, but set aparte The Sabbath Day, as I commanded your fathers. But they obeyed not.."
:27 "But if you will not hearken unto me to set apart the Sabbath Day and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath Day, then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof and it shall devour the palaces of Yerusalem, and it shall not be quenched." And they were carried away captive into Babylon.
After we read YereMiYah 17 about the Sabbath, we learn that
“Thus saith the YaHVaH of hosts, the Mighty of the Northern Kingdom, Behold, I will bring upon this city and upon all her towns, all the evil that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened their necks, that they might not hear My Words.”
Miracles do not authenticate your belief. Winston Churchill said it, “You stumble on the truth, you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and then you wander off”.
2 Kings 20:17 “Behold all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid-up in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: Nothing shall be left” saith YaHVaH (YHVH)”
The Scriptures tell us if we reject YaHVaH's Word, YaHVaH will reject us. We have rejected His Word, His Ten Commandments, His Torah and His Sabbaths. Therefore we are given government tyrants. Either YaHVaH’s Torah will govern us, or by YaHVaH, we will be governed. In this case, we are ruled by our enemies.
We are kept by the Spirit to keep Torah. Ephesians 2:8-10 tells us about favor-only (grace-only) and how works fit in. We learn about favor and works; favor and law; favor and love. Paul is speaking to the assembly at Ephesus. It is not a stretch to say that this applies to us!
"For by favor are we saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of YaHVah: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship created in YaHOSHA ha Mashiach unto great works, which YaHVaH hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
Who is a Jew, by the way? Romans 11 is directed to the Gentiles at Rome. And this relates to us. Romans 11:17 "And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, were grafted-in among them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree". Romans 2:29 "Be he IS a Jew, which is one inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of YaHVaH."
Hosea 1:10 “Yet the number of the Chosen children shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered.”
How then can we NOT be physical or spiritual “Israel”? We are the number One tribe! During the O.T. period most of those pagan peoples were to be eliminated, according to Scripture. You say, “I am not a Jew so none of the Old Testament writings apply to me”. Who are you then, a Greek? We have lost our identity in Messiah. Most of us then are the Chosen children. We ALL have to be obedient to the Word, if origin means anything.
The swan song is spoken “Oh! How I hate Thy law! It’s Jewish!”
Well, it is “Not by works of righteousness which I have done, but according to His mercy, He saved me”. We cannot be saved by playing the piano, singing, going to Convocations, reading the Word, nor by helping others.
Matthew 4:4, Deuteronomy 8 "Man shall live...by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of YHVH." I am to live as Isaiah 28 says the Word is "Line upon line, precept upon precept".
The New Covenant is JeremiYah 31/Hebrews 10:16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith YaHVaH, I will put my Torah into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them" So we must remember the foundation of our Faith. The Torah or Pentateuch is considered to be the first five books of Scripture, Genesis through Deuteronomy. It's all right there in YaHVaH's Torah.
To continue that "taboo" subject of the Torah, I would like to start in IsaiYah 5:13, 24; 8:19-20; 9:7. The goal is to show that the Sabbath, the Feast days and eternal Torah were changed to supposedly make our lifestyles more convenient.
IsaiYah 5:13, 24 Therefore, my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge.
:24 As the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the Torah of YaHVaH of hosts, and despised the Word of the Pure One of the Hebrews.
Isaiah 9:7 "Of the increase of His government (you know: no laws?) and peace there shall be no end." Hold-on, without YaHVaH's form of government, you shall have NO shalom or peace. Proclaim and live and love the Word.
We use a few Hebrew words to slowly get used to some terms that a few of the teachers will throw out there. Using Hebrew does not save you. It will give you a clearer understanding. Those who know some Hebrew are not more intelligent than those who do not, generally speaking. They are better informed. We ought to learn then, The Torah.
IsaiYah (YeshaYahu) 24:5 “The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate..”
We will learn that real bondage is not in obeying the Torah, but is the repercussion from disobeying it.
The false pastor uses that word, "Jewish law", "ceremonial", "sacrificial law" to attempt to alter the basics in the Word or, the Torah. The Protesting pastor will not begin at the beginning, the Torah, but he (or she) will do many gyrations in Galatians and other of Paul's letters to try to avoid teaching the Torah.
Love is magnifying YaHVaH in our heart and in our flesh.
Obeying the Word is love as John says in 1 John 5.
While you may want to fully obey the Word, the liberal pastor contrarily may threaten that you will have to wear "Jewish” apparel, black caps and "And during Passover, turn your house upside down to try to discover a tiny particle of leaven". Of course, we would always want to examine our own spirits for leaven as well. Purge out the old leaven physically and in the heart.
And hats: No one objects to the wearing of a hat, except when it comes to that little Hebraic hat, the kippah. My proof about leaven is partly in 1 Corinthians 5:7. Purge out the old leaven of malice and wickedness.
Malachi 2:7-9 is more powerful than our own words. "For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the Torah at His mouth: For He is the messenger of YaHVaH of hosts. 8 But ye are departed of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the Torah (law); ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith YahVah of hosts.
:09 “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 Torah.” That is where you hear a speaker say that the law is in effect for this or that "dispensation" and will say it was done away with.
Strangely if you compare what they said in the 1950's to what is said today there is a contradiction. (Therefore, some turn to house churches instead of supporting the church on the corner. the denominational church.)
Amos 5:18 warns "Woe unto you that desire the day of YaHVaH! To what end is it for you? The day of YaHVaH is darkness and not light." 20: Shall not the day of YHVH be darkness and not light, even very dark, and no brightness in it?”
But are we so excited about the second coming? The trumpet will sound and FIRST the dead in Messiah will rise. As for the patriarch David, he will not yet be up there in heaven. Acts 2:29, 34 says David is currently dead.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because thou has rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shall be no priest to me: seeing that thou has forgotten the law (Torah) of YaHVaH. I will also forget thy children.
6:7 But they like men have transgressed the covenant: There have they dealt treacherously against me.
8:12” I have written to him the great things of my Torah, but they were counted as a strange thing.”
If you have already discovered the beauty and power of these scripture passages, you do not need me to teach them; except to confirm and remind you.
The question must be asked, do we want YaHVaH's perfect government with this set-apart structure? Some call it terrible. People object to any form of religion, even YaHVaH's Ten Commandments in Exodus 20, His statutes in Leviticus or His judgments or privileges in Exodus 21-23.
Instead, most prefer to believe that divorce and remarriage is legitimate while neglecting the initial teaching on Divorce and Remarriage back in Deuteronomy 22 "...he found her not a maid". Read more at www.Giveshare.org. “But I thought to live by the exceptions to the rules”!
Come Out of Bondage and New World Order
The law is not necessarily the issue, the Sabbath IS.
EzekiYah (Ezekiel) 20:16 They despised my judgments, and walked not in my statutes, but polluted my Sabbaths: For their heart went after their idols. :19 I am YaHVah. Walk in my statutes and keep my judgements and do them;
:20 And hollow (set-apart) my Sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am YaHVaH your YaHVaH. Skip 24 They had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes and had polluted my Sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers' idols.
:25 Wherefore I gave them ALSO statutes that were not good, and judgments whereby they should not live. See JeremiYah 7:22.
The Feast Days are actually a great time for everybody: singles and families.
Galatians 3:19 “Wherefore then serveth the law? It was ADDED because of transgressions til the seed should come to whom the promise was made..”
Was the Torah given as a punishment due to sin? No! That added law was the death penalty with sin offerings. Look in Hebrews 9:9-10 "which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation."
But the carnal mind would rather be anti-torah, anti-pnomenian, rebellious 'whatever seems right in my heart' teaching. There is no end to that evil: Corrupt bible translations from Alexandria Egypt, tattoos, pro-choice (delivering unborn babies to Moloch), immorality or sodomy, stealing music on the Internet, Oji boards, Dungeon and Dragons, joining with the World and National Council of churches in false unity, Sabbath breaking, perverting of justice (not right ruling), sun worship and deliberately breaking any Torah law and principle.
COME OUT OF BABYLON AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER. TRUST IN YAHVAH'S WORD BY HIS SON, YAHOSHA NOW.

Tit_3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
Eze 23:37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them.
Eze 23:38 Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned My Sabbaths.
Pro 16:4 YaHVaH hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
Eze 33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Psa 7:11 YaH judgeth the righteous, and YaH is angry with the wicked every day.

Psa 9:9 YaHVaH also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
Psa 9:10 And they that know Thy Name will put their trust in thee: for thou, YaHVaH, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
Psa 119:126 It is time for thee, YaHVaH, to work: for they have made void thy law. (The Torah, Law of YaHVaH, Law of Moses)
Psa 119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.
Psalm 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Thy law (Torah) is the truth.

Eze 33:32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear Thy words, but they do them not.
Let us love, not hate our Master YaHVaH nor His Son.
We mentioned House Churches. In China, true believers repel the so-called Three-Self-movement of Ecumenicalists. In non-state, (underground) churches, “Where two or three agree in YaHOSHA's precious Name, He is in their midst.”
Let us be in submission to YaHVaH the only Monarch. Church of God and some Messianics ought to acquire their own buildings or feast keeping camps and show financial stewardship to YaHVaH. You have no building for YaHVaH's brethren to meet?
As for present and former Presidents, remember the encouragement from Scripture; that four out of five kings in the Old testament were evil, so not to worry.
Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor messengers, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, no height nor depth nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of YaHVaH which is in YaHOSHA our Monarch.
