Peace in the Name of Yahshua.
Yahshua (Jesus) is the Word of Yahweh (God), who came in the flesh and was sent from Above, to teach us of things Above. His message and testimony, was that Yahweh IS True and thus, worship Him, in Spirit (by His Word/Spirit/Life) and in Truth: by doing as He commands us, because His law is the truth.
Psalms 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.
One of His commandments is:
Leviticus 26:1 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
Can the cross be considered a standing image: an idol of the heart- something we glory in, without knowing it? Yes, especially if we have been taught to glory in it.
The Prophet, Jeremiah, said:
Jeremiah 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Through Jeremiah, Yahweh asks:
Jeremiah 2:11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.
Yahshua came to proclaim the truth and by His example, teach us how to walk in His Life (which is the Spirit of His Word).
Revelation 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (*we prove we worship Him and Him only, by keeping His Sabbath- which a sign between He and us forever- Friday sundown to Saturday sundown- the Holy, hallowed, Sabbath of Yahweh)
We do this by keeping His commandments and by keeping the testimony of Yahshua.
If we glory in the cross, which has no power, because it is an inanimate object and not Yahweh, we are breaking His commandment. His law is the truth. We ought to obey Yahweh, not men.
Through Isaiah, Yahshua said:
Isaiah 8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
Deuteronomy 11:8 Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it; (this is the New Jerusalem- the Kingdom of Heaven)
Deuteronomy 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.(forehead)
The seal of Yahweh is the law (His commandments/Word) and the testimony: Worship Him that Created Heaven and earth and the seas and all that is in them, and give Him Praise, Honor and Glory.
The beast causes all to take the mark of the beast, the name of the beast or the number of his name on their right hand and forehead and forces them to worship the IMAGE (cross/false jesus) of the beast. The sabbath of the beast is the venerable day of the sun.
The beast is a harlot that teaches we're no longer under the law and are instead, justified by faith. This is a lie. The beast only teaches this because it wants to destroy the remnant of the seed of the woman (Israel)
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ
Habakkuk, the Prophet prophesied of the harlot and its founder, who teaches that the Gentiles (his followers) are a law unto themselves, thus do not have to keep Yahweh's commandments. He also taught we are justified only by faith.
Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
Habakkuk 1:4 Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.
Habakkuk 1:7 They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
The law of Yahweh is the Truth. If we keep it and believe the testimony of Yahshua, we have set to our seal that Yahweh IS true. The Apostle John said:
John 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
John also said:
I John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
I John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. (Yahshua is the Door)
We have been deceived by a false Apostle named Paul. Yahshua is the Word of Yahweh and the Final (only) authority. The false apostle, Paul, said:
Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
His mark is his doctrine of lawlessness, His god is his false jesus. The mark is the cross he teaches us to glory in: but the cross is an inaminate object, and if we glory in the cross and follow Paul's example instead of Yahshua's example, we are breaking the commandments of Yahweh.
Yahshua rebuked the Pharisees continually because they continually taught lies in His Name. Paul was a Pharisee.
Mark 7:7-9 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
Of men like these, Yahshua said:
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Job prophesied of the coming of Paul:
Job 24:14 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.
Love In Yahshua,
PS. Yahshua said:
Matthew 5:17-19 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Thus Saith Paul: A verse by verse study on the writings and teachings of the False Apostle Paul, compared with the Word of Yahweh and the Teachings of Yahshua.
