Letting go of false teachings…(Part 1)

Here I sit staring down another birthday. Days are getting shorter, darkness exceeds the light this time of year and it is always a time of great reflection. My dog Sheba struggles to walk with me up my mountain for our usual walks. The new puppy is not trained enough to endure the length and distance. So instead I sit, drinking my coffee enjoying the fire and quiet that 4:30 am brings; relishing the quiet before the hum of the household business starts.

As I seek Him and His will for my life, He reveals more truth through my reflections on my own past. Growing up in the 70’s, I was an avid Wild Kingdom watcher (no Animal Planet then) and wanted to save His created wildlife with dreams of living in Africa and being a type of Dian Fossey of the Gorilla world. With that always in my mind, I attended a University and majored in Zoology. However, let me fill in a bit of background. I did not grow up in the church but in my teens I was saved at a Campus Crusade event in Ocean City NJ. I did my best to attend church and learn from the church about my beliefs and how to walk as a Christian. (see Inherited Lies, Discovering the Truth through the Bible for Yourself)

What He is showing me this morning is how man has separated faith and relationship with our Creator from Creation. My major was zoology and I confessed 5 years previously that I believed in the Messiah, the Truth of the Bible, and my Creator. Yet I was studying evolution through a scientific point of view not through a Creationist view. I was young and was not able to realize that I was isolating my thought processes; compartmentalizing my Sunday worship of the Creator with my weekly studies of Darwinism and the ultimate culmination of visiting the Galapagos to see and experience all that I had learned from the University professors. Creationism and Evolution are oxymorons yet I was happy to spit back all that I had learned and obtain an A for my class. This is our education system and the world we live in. Isolating and compartmentalizing life. We teach it to our kids. Our schools are indoctrination centers for the lobbyists and government ideology. We isolate our children into age groups and separate our aging parents into homes; fracturing our families and society. Compartmentalizing everything.

If we believe the Bible to be Truth, then we cannot believe man’s theory of evolution. First of all it is a theory which Darwin later recanted but we are not told that. Evolution directly contradicts YHWH’s teachings.

Jeremiah 4:22,

"For My people are foolish,

They know Me not;

They are stupid children

And have no understanding.

They are shrewd to do evil,

But to do good they do not know."
Truth:  Elohim (God) created all things:  

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning Elohim created the heaven and the earth…:

John 1:3: “All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.”

Colossians 1:16: “For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in the earth…..”

Isaiah 45:12: “I have made the earth, and created man upon it….”

Do we believe what He says in both the Old Testament and the New Testament? Then by default, if you profess your faith in Elohim, then you must discard the theory of evolution. What would be the exact opposite of evolution? Devolution. We are devolving as a society and as a people. What does that exactly mean? According to Miriam Webster definition: Devolution is a nountransference (as of rights, powers, property, or responsibility) to another, or

retrograde evolution DEGENERATION. How do we know? We are seeing it happen in society right before our eyes but more importantly, the bible tells us…(part 2)

Misperceptions Corrected

As I said in my last post, the last two years have been painful, filled with disbelief, anger, acceptance and now joy. As He gives wisdom, He give us new eyes to see and ears to hear. What could I be talking about? Three years ago I was walking up my mountain to find my peace and talk with Abba (YHWH), when I saw this amazing tree. Back then my mind went to, “What a perfect picture of the Trinity! – Three in One, The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit”

After these few years of stripping out learned church doctrine, I recently found the picture again and thought, “What a beautiful representation of the Commonwealth of Israel! We, who have put our faith in Yahshua (Jesus) are all grafted into the “root of Jesse.” Isaiah 11:10,

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the root of Jesse, that standeth for an ensign of the peoples, unto him shall the nations seek; and his restingplace shall be glorious.” (KJV 1901)


Now when I look at this photo, I see the two houses of YHWH’s people (the 12 tribes later split into the House of Israel and the House of Judah) and the mixed multitude that came out of slavery with Moses and Aaron. The 12 tribes and those that wanted to follow the Elohim (God) of the Israelites were joined together at Mt Sinai to be the whole congregation of YHWH. What a difference in understanding! You see as New Testament believers, we are also grafted into the promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (named Israel). Galatians 3:29 states,

“And if ye are Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed, heirs according to promise.” Galatians 3:29 (KJV 1901)

O ye seed of Abraham, his servant, ye children of Jacob, his CHOSEN. He is YHWH our Elohim; his judgments are in all the earth. He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant that he made with Abraham, his oath unto Isaac; and confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law. and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:” Psalm 105:6-10 (KJV)

We are all one in the Commonwealth of Israel, rooted in Yahusha Messiah. Galatians 3:28,

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Yahusha Messiah.” (KJV)

I recently went back up the mountain and was horrified to see the the tree had been chopped down to the root. Again I thought fitting since Yahshua is able to cut us out and graft us in. This may be news to those that believe “once saved always saved” theology. However, if we look at Romans 9-11, we are reminded that Elohim said to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy; and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. Paul makes it quite clear that we should not boast. (Romans 11:18-24), and to not be “highminded, but fear: for if Elohim spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of Elohim: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.” Yes we can be cut off.

Yet as I study His word with new understanding that as Ephesians 2:11-13 states,

“Therefore remember that at one time you once nations (Gentiles) in the flesh, who are called “the uncircumcision” by what is called “the circumcision”, made in the flesh by hands, that at that time you were without Messiah (Yahshua), excluded from the CITZENSHIP of Israel and strangers from the covenants, having no expectation and without Elohim in the world.TS2009

Today the tree has shoots, new growth, new graftings…He is calling us out of the doctrines of men. The natural reveals the spiritual and the spiritual reveals the natural…..

There is only one Tree, one family of YHWH, He never changes….Praise His Holy Name!!

Seeking Truth in Troubled Times…

So much has transpired since my last post from December 2019….COVID, lockdowns, election fraud, greatest wealth transfer in history and the destruction of our food supply systems….to name just a few. If you read the previous articles, you will see a change in my walk with God (YHWH) as He started to teach me truths. Over the last two and half years, He walked me through the lies He said we would inherit from our fathers. Jeremiah prophesied that one day Gentiles would come from the ends of the earth, saying, “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.” (Jeremiah 16:19). He was speaking to the scattered tribes of Israel, regarding that future time when YHWH would re-gather Israel (both houses/mixed multitude not the UN sanctioned state of Israel) a second time. I imagine you are saying “what does this have to do with me?” Everything!

This book and subsequent blog is crucial in understanding the times we are living in….dark times, prophesied times, but exciting time if we understand the Father’s timeline. If you have a traditional Christian worldview, you will not be prepared for the days ahead. You must seek Him with all your heart, might and strength, be willing to leave behind your traditions of men, forsake and destroy the old inherited foundation and to rebuild on Truth. Fear not……

I sought the Lord (YHWH), and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4
