I realize how confusing it can be to keep track of a large quantity of strange or unfamiliar terms, names and titles which often get used here. I’ve provided this reference source with definitions for an easy way to look up these terms when they are encountered.

I’ve tried to make it as thorough as possible but I will continually add to it if more should come to mind, or anyone inquires on something not listed here.

The Cornerstone of Tsiyown

Posted in 01 : The Chief Cornerstone with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 10/07/2010 by timenolonger

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the most awe inspiring structure to have ever been built on the Earth. The more one learns of it the less they are likely to feel they understand it.

The accepted teaching on the great pyramid, that it was a tomb built for a pharaoh in 2560 BC is, without question, a fantasy.

Manifesting multitudes of incredibly complex mathematical equations which accurately record detailed information regarding Earth measurements, astronomical data, states of matter and even time, mankind could not come close to achieving this monument in the present day.

Standing 455 feet tall without its capstone, measuring over 755 feet along one of its four sides and weighing nearly 6 million tons, its size is impressive and yet its size is not nearly the most impressive thing about it.

The pyramids scattered around Egypt correctly express a depiction of the constellation Orion.

The three most notable stars of that constellation are the “belt stars” Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka, which correlate to the three pyramids of Giza, the Great Pyramid correlating to Alnitak.

The offsetting of the smallest star in the belt, Mintaka is reflected by the same offsetting of the smallest pyramid known as the pyramid of Menkaure.

Orion Constellation

Pyramids Aerial View

The Great Pyramid is positioned exactly in the center of Earth’s landmass and is aligned precisely to the position of true north.

On vernal equinoxes it casts no shadow at noon having been positioned at just the right latitude and with the correct angling of its walls to create this effect.

A line can be traced from the apex of the pyramid to Bethlehem and crosses the Red Sea where it was divided during the Exodus.

At one time, 144,000 highly polished white casing stones covered the entire surface of the structure, causing it to reflect light that could be seen from the moon and which would look like a glowing beacon on the horizon viewed from land areas as far as Israel.

It would require volumes to attempt to fully discuss every amazing aspect of the Great Pyramid, but perhaps enough is said here to seriously contradict any claims of this being an achievement of a primitive Egyptian society or any human society.

As a symbol, many of us are accustomed to seeing the form of the pyramid used in very unpleasant ways and it often reminds those who see it of globalism, a new world order and an antichrist system which seeks to enslave humanity.

Perhaps we are all most familiar with the depiction of the pyramid on the US dollar with its eye in a disconnected capstone hovering above.

As a result of these associations it is easy to regard the Great Pyramid itself with some distrust and this, along with mainstream theories of a pagan society having built it, can turn believers away from learning more.

The enemy is subtle, and instead of using those things which are inherently evil to deceive, a method which might really deceive far fewer, he uses counterfeits of things YHWH has established in order to both defile those things in the minds of His people and to distort the line between himself and the Creator he attempts to emulate.

Consider the possibility that in fact, the Great Pyramid was designed by the Creator Himself, a monument which is designed to reflect all the specifications of creation in one structure.

A monument that is perhaps beyond any created creature’s ability to fully decipher, being a presentation of both past and future time, and all laws which govern the Earth and Heavens He has made.

A structure He has termed both the Cornerstone of the Earth and Tsiyown.

Think of these verses:

Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.

Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it?

To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its *corner stone
when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of ‘Elohiym shouted for joy?

– Job 38:4-7

*corner: pinnah – an angle, a pinnacle, chief, corner, tower

In that day there will be an altar to Yahuwah in the midst of the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt) and a pillar to Yahuwah at its border.

And it will be for a sign and for a witness to Yahuwah of hosts in the land of Mitsrayim for they will cry to Yahuwah because of the oppressors and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One and He will deliver them.

– Isaiah 19:19,20

The Pyramid is located in Egypt, at it’s border in Giza, which itself means “border”.

The Great Pyramid is without a capstone. It has been without one for a very long time, long enough that no sure written record exists of what it was like aside from some oral tradition of it having been made of gold and representing a miniature of the whole pyramid in perfect scale model.

Who that capstone was made to represent, though, is recorded and can be found also in scripture.

I will praise You, for You have answered me, and have become my salvation.

The stone that the builders rejected has become the *head corner stone.

This was Yahuwah’s doing. It is marvelous in our eyes.

– Psalm 118:21-23

*head: rosh – head, beginning, captain, first, foremost, high, lead, principal, top.

Yahushua said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures, ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This was Yahuwah’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes’?

Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of Yahuwah will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it. And whoever falls on this stone will be broken. But on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.”

– Matthew 21:42-44

Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yahushua the Anointed Himself being the chief corner in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a sacred sanctuary in the Master in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of Yahuwah in the Spirit.

– Ephesians 2:20-22

Therefore it is also contained in the scripture, “Behold! I lay in Tsiyown a chief cornerstone, chosen, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”

Therefore, to you who believe precious, but to those who are disobedient, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone,” and “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.”

They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.

– 1 Peter 2:6-8

Tsiyown, known in English transliteration as “Zion”, is often mentioned as being a holy mountain of Elohim and a location of sanctuary for His people.

The definition of Tsiyown is given as ‘desert” and the word Tsiuwn is defined as: conspicuousness, monumental or guiding pillar, sign, title, waymark.

Remember that the pyramid once had 144,000 bright white casing stones –

Then I saw another messenger ascending from the east, having the seal of the living ‘Eloah.

And he cried with a loud voice to the four messengers to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our ‘Eloah on their foreheads.”

And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the sons of Yisra’el were sealed.

– Revelation 7:2-4

Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Tsiyown, and with Him one hundred forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.

– Revelation 14:1

They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders, and no one could learn that song except the hundred forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.

These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from men as firstfruits to Yahuwah and to the Lamb.

– Revelation 14:3-5

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden mawn to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written that no one knows except him who receives it.’

– Revelation 2:17

If Yahushua, then, is the chief cornerstone, represented on the Pyramid by the capstone, there must be an answer to why it is missing, why it is used in symbolism by the enemy as it is, and who these builders are who it is said rejected the Cornerstone.

YHWH Himself designed the pyramid, yet there were builders who constructed it, and those builders have rejected the Chief Cornerstone which YHWH established, that Cornerstone being not only the physical stone which capped the structure but Yahushua Himself.

The builders could not have been human, but angelic beings who built this incredible monument to the Creator but then failed to uphold the honor of what it stood for.

The earth before the flood was a society built on and ruled by fallen angelic kings who sought to father beings in their image to rule over those YHWH had made in His, who attempted to replace His rule over creation with their own. A first real New World Order.

Their use of a new capstone which symbolized their own vision for a creation ruled by them is still meaningful to the occult to this day and is still used to imply the same meaning.

Is it any wonder that one of this day’s most infamous secret societies go by a name which refers to building with stone – the Masons, and is it any wonder that the “god” to whom they pay homage is called by them The Grand Architect of the Universe? He is not called a Creator because he is not one, he is a builder only and one who rejected the true Cornerstone.

Just How Christian Is The Cross?

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 09/16/2010 by timenolonger

The cross… it is one of the most readily recognized symbols all over the world. It is emblematic of Christianity and understood by most anyone who sees it as a sign of Messianic sacrifice on behalf of a sinful world.

Believers wear it and display it in solidarity with their Savior and His people, but are believers making a serious mistake in their understanding of what this symbol really means?

At a time when many Christians are coming to understand that much of what they have been taught by their leaders throughout the years has been misleading and even deceptive, the symbol of the cross itself is brought into question.

Anyone sincerely determined to have the whole truth can not allow themselves to be in denial when it comes to the appearance of this symbol and where it is found in history.

It is without reasonable doubt that the symbol we know as being related to our Savior did not have its first appearance in religion at the advent of Christianity.

The symbol we are familiar with, having two lines bisecting one another in some form, roughly like a lowercase “t”, is an ancient one, the depictions of which make appearances in a wide variety of pagan traditions.

That being the case, we have a duty to know all the facts and find out: just how Christian is the cross?

The Cross in Pagan Cultures

What can be revealed with fairly little effort is that the symbol of crossing lines goes back thousands of years. One of the most well known of these symbols comes from Egypt.

Ankh

The ankh stood for fertility, eternal life and the act of Heaven intervening on Earth to the effect of producing “life”.

Whether these things can be simplified in an agricultural sense or not (the passing of seasons bringing seed-time and harvest, the flooding of the Nile, etc) it is hard to miss the definitive similarity the ideas connected with the ankh bear to those connected with the Christian cross.

Tau

A similar figure, known as the Tau (after the Greek letter it resembles: appearing like a Capital T) has been associated with like connotations.

Being related to a number of deities such as the Sumerian Tammuz, the Roman Mithras and his Persian counterpart Mithra.

Solar Cross Sunwheel

The symbol of the “sunwheel” or solar cross is yet another example, a derivation of which can be seen in what is known as a Celtic cross.

This symbol also correlates to cycles of rejuvenation… a returning “sun god” who resurrects life each spring, as well as celestial cycles of the “spheres” which return back to their beginning (bringing a “new age”) with each full turn, much like annual seasonal cycles.

The “Saviors” of Pagan Cultures

The similarity of the ideas embedded in the pagan cross symbols to what is understood as Christian exclusive beliefs does not end at the symbols themselves.

The “gods” which were often connected to these cross-like themes also bore a disconcerting resemblance to ideas we associate with Messiah.

Mithras, sometimes surnamed “Sol Invictus” is considered a confusing personality in the Roman pantheon, as there is very little extant information about the cult of Mithraism, and the deity seems remarkably out of place amongst the much more antiquated figures of the Roman-Olympian pantheon.

The Roman worship of this “Mithras” came about very late in game… well after the crucifixion of Messiah.

The puzzle is resolved in understanding that Mithras was not a Roman deity at all, but a borrowed Zoroastrian deity, originally named Mithra or Mithra-yazata.

The name Mithra means “binding oath”. He is also titled thus by his followers: the lofty, and the everlasting, the Yazad (divinity) of the spoken name, and “the holy,”.

With a little background information regarding the rebel angels, known in scripture as the Watchers, we can identify who Mithra actually is.

The 200 rebellious Watchers are recorded in 1 Enoch to have made a “binding oath” upon MT Hermon to seal their mutual culpability for their planned crimes against humanity.

It was also a widely held tradition in Hebrew lore than the leader of this faction, Shemyhaza, taught his own wife how to pronounce the “spoken Name” of YHWH.

Yazidi 1920sThe title which is attributed to such beings “Yazad”, can be seen to be mirrored in the strange cult known as the Yazidi, who worship a pantheon of angels.

Yazidi Melek TausThe top ranking among the Yazidi pantheon is Melek Taus (the peacock angel), who can also be identified with the same leader of the rebel Watchers.

Both Yazidi tradition and some Hebrew folklore claim this being regretted his errors and the Hebrew legends claim he voluntarily hung himself “between Heaven and Earth”… or is some state of limbo between the physical and spiritual realms.

There are no scriptural indications of his state of punishment being voluntary, but the same theme of this fallen angel being “hung” up on a tree or “cosmic pillar” in some manner of self sacrifice can be traced throughout multiple cultures and even in a modern deck of tarot cards.

The Manichaean equivalent – Mihr yazd, was regarded as a savior figure who was hung on a tree. Likewise the Norse Odin, who hung himself on the world tree. In Babylonian legend, Tammuz was killed by crucifixion at the hand of his own consort (and/ or mother), buried and resurrected. The act was memorialized in Phrygian culture by crucifying an effigy of a man on a “sacred” pine tree each year.

"Hanged Man" Tarot CardThe annual mourning for Tammuz was rampant among Semitic cultures. Krishna, Prometheus and multiple other instances also mirror the same idea… self sacrifice and hanging.

The theme can be seen reflected in the “hanged man” of the tarot deck as well… a card of the major arcana which is nicknamed, interestingly enough, both “the traitor” and ‘the martyr”.

The authentic background of this being would suggest that he was indeed hung (head down… not in a traditional cruciform pose) in a subterranean prison, but there is nothing to suggest that his sentence was voluntary or an act of self sacrifice.

1 Enoch is clear in saying that he and his subordinates were all imprisoned quite against their will by YHWH’s faithful angels, whether they had regrets or not.

All the same… there is a familiar theme here which often becomes an excuse for non-believers to dismiss the validity of what Yahushua did, claiming these legends as proof positive that neither the cross nor the act done on it was original to Christianity.

Chronology is the issue… that these tales and symbols precede the crucifixion of Messsiah seems to validate such claims of origin for them.

What non-believers (and many Christians) fail to understand is that:

1… the promise of a Savior was made to mankind immediately after their fall in Eden and before any written record or division of religious beliefs existed anywhere on Earth.

2… the angels, including the rebel angels, were also privy to the knowledge of the expectation of a Messiah and the element of self sacrifice which would be involved.

3… rebel angels and their offspring actively sought to counterfeit the position and the promises of the Almighty, and

4… the rebel Watchers have always held the position of representing the “right hand”, as Satan’s faction has always taken the position of the “left hand”… creating the illusion of rivalry, when in actuality, both oppose YHWH.

The Real Savior

Yahushua does not leave us in hopeless confusion over His uniqueness next to the look-a-like legends before Him.

He did not conveniently fail to address the fact that there were pagan traditions of “saviors” who had gone before. Yahushua clearly states the truth regarding the distinction between Himself and these heathen beliefs.

“Most assuredly I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.

All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.

Iam the door.

If anyone enters by Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture.

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.

I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.

I am the good shepherd.

The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”

– John 10:7-11

Though we may be used to thinking of Antichrist as the last, great, diabolical world leader… the term has a broader meaning as well.

The term anti-christ is more properly translated “pseudo-christ”… not an opposite… a counterfeit, and the spirit of pseudo-christ, we are told in scripture, has been here and will continue to be here until Messiah returns.

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of Yahuwah, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

By this you know the Spirit of Yahuwah. Every spirit that confesses that Yahushua the Anointed has come in the flesh is of Yahuwah, and every spirit that does not confess that Yahushua the Anointed has come in the flesh is not of Yahuwah.

And this is the spirit of the anti-Anointed One that you have heard was coming and is now already in the world.

You are of Yahuwah, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

– 1 John 4:1-4

Was He Really Killed on a “Cross”?

An integral part of the debate about the “Christianness” of the cross symbol is whether or not the actual structure on which Yahushua was killed was, in fact, shaped like what we recognize as a cross.

After coming by information on the pagan usage of the symbol, it is often natural to then have doubts about whether our Savior would have been found hanging on something which resembled these symbols.

Roman crucifixion, contrary to popular assumption, was not always carried out on only one type of structure.

The “crucifix” went through phases of transition, and different forms of the structure were utilized for the various ways in which they would cause specific types of pain and death.

Crucifixion itself did not originate with the Romans, but reaches far back in antiquity and originates as literal hanging upon a live tree.

The mention of this type of crucifixion is made in Deuteronomy:

“If a man has committed a sin deserving of death and he is put to death and you hang him on a tree, his body shall not remain overnight on the tree but you shall surely bury him that day.

Whoever is hanged is cursed by ‘Elohiym, so do not defile the land that Yahuwah your ‘Eloah gives you as an inheritance.”

– Deut 21:22,23

and revisited in Galatians…

“The Anointed has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”)..”

– Galatians 3:13

Referred to in historical records as “arbor infelix” or the unfortunate tree… the custom was in heathen cultures, to hang a convicted person upon a tree which had been dedicated to a “god”.

This manner of execution, no doubt, has a similar origin as the legends of the “hanging god-savior”…  the difference in how this idea is treated between the Hebrew and pagan nations is illustrated in the fact that the pagan cultures were reverencing this false messianic being, whereas YHWH reminds His people that to be hanged on a tree in this way is to be cursed as the rebel angel was who defied Him.

Then why would Yahushua in this way be cursed and hung in like manner on any type of “tree”?

Because He came as the true Messiah to literally bear the curse of YHWH for all the world’s sins.

He bore a curse for our sakes.

The Roman manner of crucifixion in its various forms also had various names for the structures used to crucify victims. The “Crux Immissa” was in the form of what most recognize as a “cross”…the lowercase “t”. The “Crux Decussata” was in the form of an X. The “Crux Commissa” was in the form of the “Tau” cross… a Capital “T” form and the “Crux Simplex” was simply one pole in the ground.

It is debated in favor of the idea that Yahushua was crucified on a crux simplex, a single pole in the ground, on the basis of the word used for cross in the New Testament… which is “stauros”, literally meaning “a stake”.

It should be noted, though, that the Greek terminology which referred to a crux simplex was usually “mono stauros” (single stake), rather than stauros.

Evidence of Crucifix Form Used

Whereas the symbol normally used in Christianity is a crux immissa, and those opposing this form often favor the crux simplex, evidence has it that neither are right.

Historically and archeologically speaking… the form of the crucifix structure most often used at the time and place of Yahushua’s death was the crux commissa, the tau form crucifix.

Depending upon the type of structure it might take anywhere from a few hours to a few days for a person who was crucified to die. Scourging prior to crucifixion (which was normal procedure) would impact that length of time as well, due to shock and great amounts of blood being lost.

The hands by themselves would not support the weight of the victim, but a nail through the wrists would in any position. On a crux simplex, the hands would be brought together above he head, while on a form with a cross beam, the victim would be hung loosely by a wrist from each side, not so the arms would project straight out from the body but would be raised in a Y formation above the head.

Though it is often claimed that inhaling would be difficult crucified on a structure with a horizontal beam, this is actually not the case. Instead, the diaphragm is forced down and exhaling is what requires an active effort… making the victim unable to do so without pushing themselves up with their feet. Death was often hastened by breaking the legs of the victims, which could cause death by shock or embolism and not by asphyxiation alone, regardless of the cruciform structure.

The Roman soldiers overseeing the crucifixion of Yahushua and other victims on the same day, sought to hasten their deaths by breaking their legs, which might have come (for the other victims at least) hours or days later. The surprise with which they discovered Yahushua to already be dead implies a structure being used which should have taken more time than it had to kill Him.

It is reasonable that this was not a crux simplex form since this form, putting greater pressure on the diaphragm than the types with cross beams, would take less time to cause death. The real cause of His death is perhaps more accurately understood as one brought on by the severity of spiritual trauma which affected Him physically, rather than being purely physical in nature.

An entire crux simplex post, weighing anywhere from 200 to 300 lbs, would have been incredibly difficult if not impossible for a man to haul up a hill by himself after first being beaten.

A cross beam or “patibulum” was often carried by the victim, however… this weighing between 70 and 100 lbs.

Although the depictions of crux commissa and crux immissa forms are sometimes attributed to the highly paganized influence of Catholicism, the first specific descriptions recorded of the structure on which Yahushua was crucified were written down 200 years prior to Constantine’s rule. Those descriptions describe it as a crux commissa, a tau cross.

Should Believers Regard the Cross as Christian or Pagan?

The controversy surrounding what type of crucifix structure Yahushua was killed on is strongly influenced by the idea that Messiah could not be associated with any symbol which had been used in heathen cultures.

What we tend to forget in that line of thinking is that the Romans were, of course, pagan people. The practice of crucifixion was a pagan oriented form of execution, reminiscent of an event which was synonymous with the wrath of YHWH, but which pagan cultures spun their own messianic stories from.

The question of Christian or pagan becomes an issue of what came first.

What came first was the plan of YHWH of course… that predating anything which heathen people did, recorded or depicted in reverence to false messiahs.

If we must equate the cross form with heathen ideals, then what do we make of false elohim who have been called shepherds, fishers and crucified saviors? What form of crucifix would have been less pagan and a more comfortable fit with Christianity when nearly every imaginable shape and form (including every shape a crucifix could be) has been implemented at some point in ideographic reference to a pagan “god”?

The decision to wear, display or otherwise use the cross as identifying with Christianity might not be rightly decided based on whether or not one can find any non Christian usage of it, but rather a conclusion based on what the structure on which Yahushua was crucified really means.

Does it stand for the wrath of YHWH poured out on sin… or does it stand for the redemption from that sin which Yahushua provided?

Obviously, that can be a very complex question worth its own discussion… but we might think twice about displaying a cross if its true connotation is wrath rather than mercy.

As for how I might answer this, at least in my current understanding (which might always change and hopefully for the better) … I understand mercy as having the last word. The instrument of the cross has been the mode of YHWH’s wrath, and yet that wrath poured out upon the One True Savior has resulted in mercy… the result which no false shepherd has ever achieved.

Yom Kippur: The Peculiar Case of a Mysterious Scapegoat

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 07/23/2010 by timenolonger

Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement is perhaps the most mysterious of all holy days given to Israel to keep.

It is widely taught by Christian leadership that this day is a foreshadowing of Messiah’s atonement on the cross for believers, yet the foreshadowing of this event is much more applicable to another day which Israel was to keep in remembrance, namely Passover.

The bondage with which Israel served in Egypt is not unlike the bondage of the whole of humanity under Satan and his power.

The angel of death which was sent to smite the first born in Egypt is obviously counterpart to the fact that the wages of sin is death. The lamb’s blood which is applied to the doorposts is a direct foreshadowing of the covering of the blood of Yahushua, which causes the angel of death to “pass over” the believer. Eating the lamb is mirrored in the words Yahushua spoke at the last supper, which itself was a Passover meal…”this is my body..”

The purpose of Yom Kippur, then, would reasonably stand for a different set of circumstances relating to atonement and cleansing.

Here is the description of the instructions to Israel which were to be performed for the Day of Atonement:

{3} ‘Aharown shall come into the Sacred Place with the blood of a young bull as a sin offering and of a ram as a burnt offering.

{4} He shall put the sacred linen tunic and the linen trousers on his body. He shall be girded with a linen sash and with the linen turban he shall be attired. These are sacred garments. Therefore he shall wash his body in water and put them on.

{5} And he shall take from the congregation of the sons of Yisra’el two kids of the goats as a sin offering and one ram as a burnt offering.

{6} ‘Aharown shall offer the bull as a sin offering for himself and make atonement for himself and for his house.

{7} He shall take the two goats and present them before Yahuwah at the door of the tent of meeting.

{8} Then ‘Aharown shall cast lots for the two goats. One lot for Yahuwah and the other lot for the scapegoat.

{9} And ‘Aharown shall bring the goat on which Yahuwah’s lot fell and offer it as a sin offering.

{10} But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat shall be presented alive before Yahuwah to make atonement upon it and to let it go as the scapegoat into the wilderness.

{11} And ‘Aharown shall bring the bull of the sin offering for himself and make atonement for himself and for his house and shall kill the bull as the sin offering that is for himself.

{12} Then he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from the altar before Yahuwah, with his hands full of sweet incense beaten fine, and bring it inside the veil.

{13} And he shall put the incense on the fire before Yahuwah that the cloud of incense may cover the cover that is on the testimony lest he die.

{14} He shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the cover on the east side and before the cover he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.

{15} Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering for the people, bring its blood inside the veil, do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it on the cover and before the cover.

{16} So he shall make atonement for the Sacred Place because of the uncleanness of the sons of Yisra’el and because of their transgressions, for all their sins, and so he shall do for the tent of meeting that remains among them in the midst of their uncleanness.

{17} There shall be no man in the tent of meeting when he goes in to make atonement in the Sacred Place until he comes out that he may make atonement for himself, for his household, and for all the assembly of Yisra’el.

{18} And he shall go out to the altar that is before Yahuwah and make atonement for it and shall take some of the blood of the bull and some of the blood of the goat and put it on the horns of the altar all around.

{19} Then he shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times, cleanse it, and consecrate it from the uncleanness of the sons of Yisra’el.

{20} And when he has made an end of atoning for the Sacred Place, the tent of meeting, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat.

{21} ‘Aharown shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the sons of Yisra’el, and all their transgressions concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man.

{22} The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land and he shall release the goat in the wilderness.

{23} Then ‘Aharown shall come into the tent of meeting, shall take off the linen garments that he put on when he went into the Sacred Place, and shall leave them there.

{24} And he shall wash his body with water in a sacred place, put on his garments, come out and offer his burnt offering and the burnt offering of the people, and make atonement for himself and for the people.

{25} The fat of the sin offering he shall burn on the altar.

{26} And he who released the goat as the scapegoat shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in water and afterward he may come into the camp.

{27} The bull for the sin offering and the goat for the sin offering whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the Sacred Place shall be carried outside the camp and they shall burn in the fire their skins, their flesh, and their offal.

{28} Then he who burns them shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in water and afterward he may come into the camp.

{29} This shall be a statute forever for you. In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls and do no work at all, whether a native of your own country or a stranger who dwells among you.

– Leviticus 16:3-29

The first action which is to be performed involves a bull. The bull is offered as a sacrifice for Aaron and for his own family personally.

The second action involves casting lots for two goat kids. Here is where, upon close examination, the ritual becomes very strange.

Lots are cast and one goat is selected randomly to be a slain sacrifice “for YHWH” to atone for the “uncleanness” of the children of Israel.

The second goat is then designated as “for the scapegoat” according to KJV and most other English translations. This goat is to be let go alive into the wilderness after receiving upon its head all the “iniquities” of Israel.

The notion that both of these goats are sacrifices for moral transgression does not make a lot of sense. One is slain, the other released, but if the slain goat is sacrificed to atone for moral transgression, what then is the point of also loading those same sins onto a live goat which will depart into the wilderness?

The first of these goats makes an atonement Because of the uncleanness of Israel, but the atonement is For the “holy place”. (“So he shall make atonement for the Sacred Place because of the uncleanness of the sons of Yisra’el” – Lev.16:16)

As the first goat is randomly selected by lot for a personal being, the Creator YHWH – it follows, naturally that the second goat is also selected for a Person – rather than the way it reads in English “for the scapegoat”, as if the lot is selected for the goat.

If the second goat is not designated as belonging to an individual, we would expect the first to be described in like manner, such as “One lot for the goat to be slain to YHWH, and the other lot for the scapegoat”.

The incongruity of the English translation suggests that a name has been omitted here.

The word for scapegoat, given in Hebrew is “azazel”… the definition for which is given “goat of departure, scapegoat”..

The claim of this definition is supposedly resting on the root words – “ez”, a word which is used for a she-goat in the singular and “azal” – to disappear or depart.

There is no question that the given root of the word azazel is flawed, and flawed in such a way that it’s almost impossible to imagine it being an honest error.

The word “ez” is not itself a root definition, but goes back to the word “az” which means, strong, powerful and fierce. The use of the word for a goat came from the goat’s exhibiting of these traits.

Furthermore, the word “azaz” which also derived from “az” and is clearly nearer the mark in reference to “azazel” means to harden oneself impudently or to be strong in opposition against.

The suffix “el” is very common in Hebrew and is a word which literally means “Mighty One” and can both refer to YHWH Elohim or to an angel.

Azazel, then, correctly translated, is “One Who Is impudently hardened against YHWH”.

Azazel is a being… one who has his fist scriptural mention in a book outside of canon:1 Enoch, and so it begins to make some sense as to why pains would be taken to eliminate a canonical reference to a name which only appears elsewhere in books rejected from canon.

“Moreover Azazel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates,

the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows,

the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered.

Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways.”

– 1 Enoch 8:1,2

Back to the first goat which was to be slain… the indication of the fact that the atonement took away some uncleanness from the children of Israel, in order that they might not be an affront to YHWH in His holy place, brings up the question what manner of uncleanness might this be that is different from the iniquities which are placed upon the goat to be sent away.

Uncleanness here is the word “Tamah” which is to be contaminated or defiled.

This word appears in numerous places to describe physical characteristics of uncleanliness. A Woman in her menstrual cycle for instance, or someone who has a contagious disease in defined as “tamah”.

When it is understood that Yom Kippur, is in part, related to a fallen angel named Azazel, who numbered among rebels which physically polluted the human gene pool, it is more clear what a physical uncleanness might be which needs some amendment, at least spiritually, before the congregation can come before the Holy Place.

The nation of Israel was meant to preserve a pure human stock which was not to me mingled with the hybrid multitudes of other nations.

It still can not be expected that the congregation of Israel was Completely pure of intermingling… indeed we are told several times throughout scripture of the seed of Abraham taking to themselves wives from other nations.

Yom Kippur is also a commandment to foreigners who live with Israel… in other words, that uncleanness which is assumed to be in some small part contaminating some of Israel is surely to be expected in a foreigner.

An offering “for Azazel” might strike believers as very, very unseemly business for the people of YHWH to be commanded to do.

The implication that this goat is a sacrifice to a fallen angel has kept most believers from coming to terms with the meaning of Yom Kippur as it is stated in scripture.

This is a misunderstanding though… the released goat is not meant as a gesture of worship or a sacrifice to the fallen angel… rather it is meant as a means to convey the penalty of the sin which is upon Israel to the fallen angel.

In fact, the word which was used in English to replace Azazel’s name – scapegoat, has, to this day preserved the true meaning of the ritual which was ironically hidden by the same word.

Scapegoat now means to impart blame on a party other than the one who actually committed the transgression.

The very reason that such a ritual should exist goes back to a single, little known sentence which was spoken by YHWH to Enoch.

“All the earth has been corrupted by the effects of the teaching of Azazel. To him therefore write: All Sin.”.

– 1 Enoch 10:12

It was this curse placed upon Azazel which became the foundational reason for conveying the iniquities of Israel to him. Azazel was cursed to pay the penalty for all the sin of His people.

Azazel, of course does not represent the atonement for which Messiah came. Azazel merely became the temporary object of YHWH’s wrath for all that was done wrong by His people so that He could, instead of cursing them, bless them, until the Messiah came and forever removed the necessity for a “scapegoat”.

It is further made evident that Azazel is the focus of the second selected goat on Yom Kippur in that the goat was taken out into the desert to be set free.

The goat would not survive… it would surely die. We might assume it would die of thirst or starvation but Israel so feared that the animal would return to them and therefor bring back with it their iniquities, that they often threw it into a canyon to ensure its death.

It is told in 1 Enoch that the place they released the goat is also the place where YHWH sentenced Azazel to imprisonment beneath the Earth.

“Again the Lord said to Raphael, Bind Azazel hand and foot; cast him into darkness; and opening the desert which is in Dudael, cast him in there.

Throw upon him hurled and pointed stones, covering him with darkness;”

– 1 Enoch 10:6,7

The blood of bulls and goats of course could never set sinners free eternally from the bonds of their sin… neither could visiting those sins on a fallen angel.

Perfect Justice is not served in either way, as the life of animals does not equate to the life of a human being nor can a wicked angel be forced to carry the burden to any ultimate effect…himself having been a sinner who could not pay his own price.

For sin to be Eradicated… it required nothing less than Yahushua, perfect and Almighty, to be our Passover lamb.

CERN, LHC & The Great Return

Posted in 12 : Technocracy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/26/2010 by timenolonger

If you have not read the article “The Breaking of Ouroborus” by Cyprium, i recommend beginning there before reading this, as much of what is written in this article will make better sense read second to that one.

The CERN LHC (large hadron collider) is a massive particle accelerator near Geneva Switzerland, costing 9 billion dollars to build. The goals of this machine are claimed to be aimed at understanding the answers to the fundamental questions of physics, including the hope of discovering the hypothetical Higgs boson. In theory, the Higgs boson, often called the “god particle”, is a massive scalar elementary particle which gives all things mass. This particle would supposedly be the framework of all things existing in physicality.

The LHC intends to collide particles at a rate slightly under the speed of light and in the process will be potentially creating black holes, exotic matter and wormholes. The worried public has been reassured that nothing disastrous can occur from the experiments which they intend to do at CERN. It is assured, they say, that such things as black holes and wormholes would remain so incredibly small and exist for such a tiny fraction of time that they would be harmless and merely side effects of their intended goals.

So far, though the LHC has encountered many and strange interruptions which has prevented it from reaching it’s full potential yet, it has already produced black holes.

“I can confirm that, yes, the first stages of the experiment resulted in the appearance of a miniscule black hole,” said the spokesperson to gathered reporters on Monday. “The black hole is being kept under quarantine and our scientists have been monitoring its progression,”

http://www.thetechherald.com/article.php/200914/3354/CERN-admits-bl…

CERN’s large hadron collider is expected to produce wormholes as well. Wormholes are a means by which traveling through time is possible, though for one to be traversable it must be much larger than the subatomic size which CERN claims will be the only ones possible with their particle collider. The function of a wormhole can basically be understood by the analogy of piercing two ends of a piece of paper with a needle and then folding that paper so that those two holes connect. The necessity to travel across the paper’s surface is bypassed, the paper itself representing time and space.

Two physicists, Irina Ya. Aref’eva, and Igor V. Volovich disagree with CERN’s assurances that traversable wormholes are not the direction CERN is headed toward.

“We suggest that there is a possibility to test causality at the LHC. We argue that if the scale of quantum gravity is of the order of few TeVs, proton-proton collisions at the LHC could lead to the formation of time machines (spacetime regions with closed timelike curves) which violate causality. One model for the time machine is a traversable wormhole. We argue that the traversable wormhole production cross section at the LHC is of the same order as the cross section for the black hole production. Traversable wormholes assume violation of the null energy condition (NEC) and an exotic matter similar to the dark energy is required. Decay of the wormholes/time machines and signatures of time machine events at the LHC are discussed.”

http://arxiv.org/abs/0710.2696

The LHC is now operating at 7 TeV (teraelecrtronvolts, 1TeV=i trillion electronvolts) with a stated goal of eventually reaching 14 TeV. It is argued that traversable wormholes could not be created on earth since the energy required would be something comparable to stellar explosions, though the amount of kinetic energy necessary to produce results of a certain kind within a collider are less than that required to produce the same results in space.

The formation of exotic matter would be necessary to the formation of a traversable wormhole as a result of the Casimir effect which is a sort of localized vacuum phenomena in which a mass negative region of space-time can exist. Exotic matter violates energy conditions, having negative mass or repulsion to gravity. At high enough energy of collision exotic particles can be formed and have been detected at the LHC.

Time in no straight line, it is a circuit and circuits repeat themselves. Why this should be is not questioned as much as whether it is but the fact that time is a circuit is observable with no doubt. It can be observed as simply as watching the eastern Horizon at sunrise on the morning of the Spring Equinox. As time passes, the sun rises through the houses of the zodiac in a circular pattern which eventually arrives back at it’s beginning point. Why time exists in a cycling pattern is directly connected with the origin of sin and that there are beings, including Satan who are interested in maintaining a timepath which never exits into eternity and so to the judgment and defeat which is determined to them.

As these days give every sign of being the last days, Satan knows his time is short in a literal way. Knowing he will not be successful against the Most High, he knows that his chances only rest in a device to maintain or begin anew the next cycle. It would seem that this is what CERN”S Large Hadron Collider has been built to achieve. It is evident not only in the published science involved but the geometric design of the machine. CERN represents it’s goals with a statue of Shiva. Shiva is a deity who represents death and rebirth, a being connected with the idea of a circuit of time which folds in on itself to meet end to beginning.

In Buddhism a symbolic object exists called a dharma wheel. It is an 8 spoked wheel that represents the noble 8-fold path to enlightenment. It is described as a way which leads to the ceasing of suffering and the achieving of a new and more enlightened consciousness which perhaps can be said to sound quite a bit like the promise of world peace in a “new world order”.

Dharma Wheel 8

Ouroborus

8-Pt Star in Wheel

The symbolism of 8 and what its meaning is connected to a circle of time is found in an ancient inscription in Egypt.

“I am One who becomes Two,
who becomes Four,
who becomes Eight,
and then I am One again. ”

8 is a number which universally symbolizes the new beginning following the close of a repetitive time sequence. The 8th day in weeks is also the first.

The design of certain components of the LHC will remind you of the symbols just spoken of.

LHC 02

LHC 03

The Aerial view of LHC will remind you of the Ouroborus

CERN Aerial View

The Dharma wheel and 8 fold path is not simply a religious concept. Physics itself involves a theory called the the 8 fold way. This is a theory for organizing subatomic baryons (a composite particle made of three quarks) and mesons (made of one quark and one anti quark) into octets. Both of these particles belong to the hadron family.

It is most interesting to notice that the LHC has repeatedly been prevented from reaching it’s intended potential by various strange circumstances which have even led some scientists to wonder if the machine was being sabotaged by itself from a future point or perhaps even time travelers who already understood the dangers of the thing. One occurrence was nothing more than a little bird who dropped a bread crumb into the machine. I believe it is neither the machine itself or time travelers but it is not coincidence either. I believe that YHWH Himself hinders their progress and it remains to be seen if there will come a point when He will allow them to attempt all that they design to do with it.

The latest thing to hinder the LHC’s progress is an unknown vibration which they term “the Hump”. It is a high frequency vibration between 31 and 38 KHz and has caused beam losses for the collider while in operation. CERN is not able to identify what the vibration is or where it might be coming from except that it either originates directly below or directly above the collider ring. It is just such a vibration as to cause the perfect means for disruption of the machine. It is my conclusion that He has drawn a line which will not be crossed except by His will at His timing if ever and even should this device accomplish to create a continued time loop, He has promised that His plan for eternity will not be thwarted.

Update: July 4th, 2012

interesting timing..

“Scientists in Geneva on Wednesday applauded the discovery of a subatomic particle that looks like the Higgs boson.”

Discovery UPDATE (July 4): ‘Higgs Boson Hunt: We’ve discovered some…

They really did discover something.

“During a live CERN announcement on Wednesday morning, representatives from the CMS and ATLAS detectors at the LHC detailed the discovery (to a 4.9 and 5 sigma significance in the CMS and ATLAS detectors respectively) of a previously unknown massive boson that resembles the Higgs. History has just been made.”

Nephilim : A History That Can’t Be Ignored

Posted in 05 : Generations X with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/24/2010 by timenolonger

Those of us who accept that there has been a real occurrence of a race of human hybrids, including giants on Earth and the presence of heavenly beings who initiated the existence of those beings are up against two main sources of criticism.

On the one side there is the secular world, which will not, under any circumstances support evidence (or even let evidence be known) which could in any way substantiate biblical history.

While i don’t expect anything more or less from the secular world, it’s the other side of the coin that becomes frustrating, and that is believers in biblical history who refuse outright anything which is remotely connected to giants, nephilim or a world history that includes them.

Most believers know secular atheists who rail against the “fairy tale” of scripture, having never once read the text which they refute. It’s common sense that we can’t formulate an opinion on a written record if we are never wiling to read it.

Why then, should there ever be believers who are comfortable exercising the same kind of prejudice towards bodies of evidence which thwart their traditional viewpoint?

If any group of individuals has a duty to be thorough in their consideration of all facts, it should be us.

World history presents us with a picture that is very very difficult to reconcile to either the mainstream story, or even to a biblical one which does not allow for the insertion of some extraterrestrial influence.

Here i have complied a “tip of the iceberg” of the anomalous, the strange and the out-of-place, which should put these bible references in their intended perspective:

“Now it came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them that the sons of the ‘Elohiym saw the daughters of men were beautiful and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.”
– Genesis 6:1,2

“There were nephilim on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of the ‘Elohiym came in to the daughters of men and they bore to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.”
– Genesis 6:4

“There we saw the nephilim (the descendants of ‘Anaq came from the giants) and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight and so we were in their sight.”
– Numbers 13:33

In every corner of the globe there exists legends of giants. This alone… just this one fact needs an answer.

When we discuss the great flood with a non-believer, we point out that global flood stories are… well… global. The fact that cultures far from one another should retain such similar stories of an event is evidence that it was not a concocted legend, but that it came from the re-telling of a true event.

Why then should the same logic not apply to repeated beliefs about the existence of giants… from Australian Aborigines to Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Native North and South Americans and every island in between.

Not only do we have stories though… we have hard evidence, the remains of individuals who could hardly be called your “average human being”…

In 1833, in Lampec-Rancho California, buried beneath boulders, soldiers found the skeletal remains of an individual who measured 11 feet, 9 inches.

Other discoveries of skeletal remains between 9 and 18 feet include… 1887, Eureka Nevada – 11 feet; 1891, Crittenton Arizona – 9 feet, 8 inches with polydactyly; 1928, Tensas Perish Louisiana – 9 feet, 11 inches; 1931, Madison Parish, Louisiana – 10 feet, 2 inches; 1923, Grand Canyon – petrified remains 18 and 15 feet.

Among the most bizarre findings of humanoid remains have been skulls with double rows of teeth, and even some with horns.

Besides physical remains, footprints are evidence of huge persons which have walked the earth… in Australia were found footprints measuring 2 feet long and 7 inches across the toes, spaced 6 feet apart, indicating a 12 foot tall person, another set in the same region with a 10 inch toe span indicates a person 17 feet tall.

Since pictures are reputed to be far more compelling than words… let’s look at some..

Elongated Skulls

The mainstream explanation to why there should exist skulls which look like those above, is that certain cultures made a practice amongst the nobility of intentionally deforming the skulls of their children, using boards to flatten and elongate their heads.

While it is true that some did this, it can’t be applied to every instance of discovery of an elongated skull. Many of these specimens not only had an oddly shaped head, they had a larger brain capacity. This, of course can’t be accomplished by artificial deforming of the skull.

Furthermore, one has to ask the question… what on Earth compels a people to intentionally deform their skulls to look like this, and why is it attached to the idea of nobility?

This is a feature that can be seen represented repeatedly in Egyptian depictions of royalty…

Egyptian Skull Profile

It is important to factor in Egypt’s own testimony about their nobility, in that they held to the assertions that their rulers were, in the beginning, “gods” and that the successive rulership was held by hybrids, the children of these “gods”.

Egypt is not the last that can be seen of the presence of elongated skulls, in fact it is a feature that is present (if not as prominent) in the European noble bloodlines.

We can perhaps safely assume this girl’s head was not intentionally deformed in a bizarre, primitive cultural tradition.

The answer of the board-deformed skulls also does nothing to explain a different sort of anomalous skull…

Who was flying airplanes thousands of years ago?

Ancient Airplane Model

If humans were capable of these things thousands of years ago by virtue of their own abilities of intellect and discovery, then we should see a gradual incline from primitive to advanced – and yet that isn’t the case.

The world was clearly primitive to a point, and then without prelude or warning, there was a sudden burst of advanced knowledge from seemingly nowhere.

Only a bit over 1600 years passed between the creation of Adam and the flood, and somewhere in this time an appearance of greatly advanced technological information interjected itself.

By the same token, if we are dealing with a humanity with enough intelligence to understand the concepts which appeared in this era, we are not dealing with a superstitious and simple-minded people who are given to fabricating bizarre supernatural stories to explain simple, natural concepts.

I believe that humans were intelligent pre-flood, even moreso than they are now, and yet they insist, universally, in ancient times that the source of their advanced technology was beings which arrived on Earth from heavenly realms.

In today’s world we don’t have people insisting that the Wright Brothers were aliens or that Thomas Edison was a “god”.

The similar traditions of the religious and historical records of multitudes of cultures worldwide keep pointing to three interconnected ideas… an appearance of heavenly beings on earth, genetic manipulation and hybridization, and finally a catastrophic flood.

The Sumerians tell this story, accrediting the beings called the Anunnaki (“those who came from heaven to Earth”) with their knowledge and with breeding programs, which mixed Earthly bloodlines with extraterrestrial ones.

The Egyptians mirror this account and term the same being “Neteru” which translates to “Watchers”.

The Incas kept an oral tradition, as did other Native South Americans, of white-skinned, tall humanoids who displayed knowledge and supernatural power far beyond human ability, who came and “civilized” primitive mankind, teaching them how to use technology to make their lives more convenient.

Babylonians and Assyrians reported a fish/human chimera creature who did the same post-flood.

The Pantheon of deities of these ancient peoples also mirror each other. We can see the same “gods” over and over again between widely differing geographical and cultural sources.

By what coincidence of imagination should all these groups of people concoct the same “gods” pertaining to the same functions, with the same circumstances surrounding them?

Now in this day it can’t be ignored that there are millions of people who claim to have had visual encounters with unearthly beings or craft, and that there are tens of thousands who report having been abducted by them… nor can we ignore the similarity that is evident in this with the ancient stories which reflect the same circumstances, up to and including genetic experimentation done on human victims – whether willing or not.

No doubt, these things are a lot to wrap one’s mind around for the first time, and not the most palatable of ideas that there have been, and are intrusive extra-dimensional beings interfering with humanity.

In the simplest and most literal of scriptural readings, though, It becomes evident that these things are evidently factual, and in knowing that is so, many points in scripture take on a clearer aspect of meaning with it in mind, and equip the believer to answer to the fallacies which secular, mainstream science would have us accept.

Rigidly refusing to put the evidence to the test on the grounds of “too strange to believe” can only lead to a place where we have no good answer to a world full of mysterious loose ends… and if we, as believers, don’t have an answer which fits the evidence, you can believe the enemy will concoct a fable to fill in the blanks.

The Church of Help Yourself

Psychology has it’s roots in the worship of pagan deities, particularly one in Egyptian legend named Thoth. When a thing has roots in an evil source, it can not be expected to grow into something which produces good fruit, but this is a simple truth which is confounded in the minds of people by the passing of time, and new benevolent-looking masks placed over old wickedness.

I am no fan of psychology, and so it alarms me to see that so many Christian ministries are devoted to it, and even those which are not devoted to it have become churches which – instead of teaching His word – give lengthy sermons on psychological applications of Christian morality.

If you desire a Christian self help book, you will have no trouble finding one. Hundreds of thousands of them exist and more are written every day, books to tell you how to live like a Christian man, books to tell you how to live like a Christian woman, books to help you recover from addiction, books to help you recover from divorce, books to help you pray, books to help your self-esteem, books to help your finances.

I am confused. Who is the man or woman who has written a manual on any of these things and wrote something better on them that what scripture has already taught?

Why is it that even believers now feel that they need the opinions of men to put right what is wrong in their lives, instead of turning to the One who has had answers all along?

The churches of the world are becoming a psychologists’ offices instead of the congregations of Yahushua. The answers He has given to the problems we might face are simple, clear, and unmistakable – but they are often not what people want to be told, and so they seek out some complex definition of their troubles – and usually one which removes all their own responsibilitie to whatever the problem is.

o

His word on living like a man or woman whose life is dedicated to Him was summed up in two sentences spoken by Messiah.

“‘You shall love Yahuwah your ‘Eloah with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” -Matthew 22:37-40

It did not require Him 500 pages to explain what the focus of a life in His service should look like. It is a simple answer but applied in life, it goes against the sinful nature of fallen creatures and so they become hungry to hear something which excuses a lack of willingness to do all that those few words mean, or provides a recipe for being able to accomplish it which should be no more complicated than complete submission to His will.

Perhaps one of the strangest things i have heard advertised by a Christian ministry was a book on how to pray which included pages and pages of the pastor’s own prayers on various matters.

The advertisement explained that many do not know how to pray because they feel unworthy or not eloquent enough, or they seem to be talking to themselves when they pray to Him.

I can not think of a more unnatural way to address any of those problems than trying to borrow the prayers of someone else. Prayers are intensely personal communications between believers and their Elohim, much more than the words which are spoken, and sometimes do not contain any words at all.

He told us in what way to pray, giving us a model example and instructions to not pray so that others can take note of your praying, but always in sincerity and meekness.

If we feel unworthy, so be it. We are unworthy, this is why His favor is called Mercy and not Due Payment.

If we are not eloquent, what should it matter? Has He not already known our needs before we begin to speak?

If we feel we are talking to ourselves, we don’t have a problem with praying, we have a problem with our faith.

Maybe my least favorite aspect of self-help in the Christian community is just what those words, “self-help”, mean. When have fallen beings not been focused on self help?

It is something we all can do well, help ourselves. We help ourselves to whatever we want that we can get. We help ourselves to what we should, and should not have alike, and we help ourselves to what we desire before we help anyone else to what they do.

We are always looking around for that to which we can help ourselves. In the end, we can help ourselves to all kinds of things, but we can’t ever save ourselves from anything. We need Him for that, and Him alone.

Likewise, we will never need to be concerned about our self-esteem, which is a thing on which Christian psychology, and psychology in general, is so focused. No one with a sin nature does not esteem themselves, we are all very good at it.

Nearly all we do, without thinking, is done to benefit us in some way. Infants are able to esteem themselves, crying out for food and attention, it is the first thing human beings know how to do.

The only one to walk the Earth in human flesh who did not esteem Himself, but gave His everything for everyone else was Yahushua. If we are to be conformed to Him, perhaps we could use a little less esteem for ourselves.

I see all this trend in helping self and psychology over scripture in the church as one a sign of apostasy in these last days. As the whole world becomes more and more wrapped up in self-absorbed thinking, the church follows. It is constantly and consistently about “me” and “I’ everywhere you turn.

“And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold, but he who endures to the end shall be saved.”
– Matthew 24: 10-13

If there is any good advice to counteract all the troubles of life it is – cease worrying about self and live for Him.
