FIRST: On this site we prefer to use the actual Name of our loving Heavenly
Father as it was written in the Word, and thus you will note that we will
use the Four Letter “Memorial Name” of - YHVH, which is pronounced as YaHVaH
or YaHWaH. In addition we will also use our Heavenly Father’s
attribute/title, which is Elohim rather than “God,” which
sadly is the name of a pagan god. In addition we also love to use the actual
and real Name of our beloved Messiah which is - Yahushua or Yahshua in short, for
this is our Saviours original Hebrew Name as given to Him at birth in Lukas
- Luke 1:31. This was the only Name ever used when He was on the earth by His
family, disciples and His followers OVER THE centuries, even until today!
However, it was changed to a foreign name by the founder of the new
“pagan church of
Before we continue let me first explain what
was nailed to the “cross.” Actually the Greek states it was a
“tree” or a “stake.” But to go deeper into
understanding of what the full meaning of what was actually nailed to the
stake, we really should closely look and understand the three important
principles that I have placed at the top of this page for they are vital to
understanding what was meant. We need to realise that the Word was written to a
specific people and at set time, and the Word was clearly understood at that
time for it was current as it was obvious to them. However, as time has passed,
what do you know about those days and the laws and the way of life, in truth
you would have to be an orthodox Jew to have a pretty good idea of the basics,
Thus we need to start
understanding these three important points! For beloved
if we do not apply these points, how can we ever fully understand the true
meaning of the blessed Word of YaHVaH Elohim (the LORD God), blessed be His
Sanctified Name) and our beloved Saviour Yahushua THE Messiah!
Later it would be Constantine who created the “Blue Law” on March 6, 321, which read in part; “On the venerable day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed,” and thus the day was later called SUNday.
*Simon (Peter) Magnus was the person who went to Rome and established
“Christianity” there, NOT the Apostle Shime’on ben Yonah -
Peter the Rock, who in fact NEVER ever set a foot in that evil city! It was he
that created the terminology “Christian.” I suggest that you read: Apostle Peter Vs Peter Bishop of Rome.
“And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the stake.” Colossians 2:13-15. NKJV & KJV.
Interestingly almost all versions state “handwriting of requirements” and not “the “Law.” But prior to the time of its rather late introduction, no one would dare to preach such a contradictory message. For up to then, how could anyone challenge YaHVaH Elohim’s Word, for did he not clearly say that His Word would stand “Forever” and that His Covenant was eternal? He also said that His Word could not be altered in any way and “not to turn to the right or the left” thus the Law cannot be “done away with” because it is perfect. During Messiah’s life on earth, as He taught His Father’s message, he covered all the “Decalogue,” the “Ten Commandments” for it remains valid to this day, and that includes the fourth commandment, Elohim’s Seventh Day Sabbath! It was because the Divine Law could not be changed or altered that YaHVaH sent Yahushua the Messiah to die for sinners because:
“This is My blood of the Covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Mattityahu - Matthew 26:28.
“According to the Law all things are cleansed by blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness (of sins).” Hebrews 9:22.
Thus beloved, that evil heresy of the
“Law has been nailed to the tree” has carried over to statute Law
and thus Satan has won yet another victory in having the vast majority of
Christendom into believing that not only was the Sabbath "nailed to the cross" but the annual
worship days, called feasts as well! But, if the Law was done away with and
nailed to the tree, why then do we still keep those that we love to call the
“Ten Commandments? Why not toss them in the rubbish and well, go and
murder, steal, have a good romp and be an adulterer, well, the church says that
the Law has been done away with and once saved means always saved, according to
most churches anyway. Although that is yet another lie and totally
unscriptural, created by a man who wrote one of the most hateful books that was
used by Adolf Hitler during his public speeches to encourage his people, the SS
and the army to get rid of those “vile Jews, burn their evil books,
destroy their shops, and then slaughter them all and wipe them from the face of
the earth!” Now, who was it who wrote “Von den Juden und Ihren
Therefore the belief of this “nailing” is based on a misunderstanding of the Divine Law. For Yahushua, as our Saviour, perfectly upheld all of the Divine Law. Then His followers were admonished to follow His example. WE know for a fact that the Apostle Shaul – Paul of Tarsus kept all the feasts and taught his converts, be they Jew or Gentile to do so as well, as can be seen by his various references to keeping the feasts;
“But we sailed from Philippi after the “Feast of Unleavened Bread (Passover), and five days later joined the others at Troas, where we stayed seven days.” in Acts 20:6.
“For to this you were called, because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps.” 1 Shime'on (Kepha) - 1 Peter 2:21.
The Apostles and the early faithful in Yahushua THE Messiah all kept the feasts for hundreds of years after the death and resurrection and ascension of our Saviour Yahushua, and those who our beloved Messiah called the “Little Flock” continue to do so to this very day, as they continue to uphold both the Sabbath and the Feasts, but not for salvation sake, but to honour our beloved YaHVaH Elohim and He who was …
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. He was with Elohim in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.” Yochanan - John 1:1-4.
Beloved, many tend to think that it took time for the Apostles to decide on what “Christians” tend to deem these days as “old Jewish traditions” and that they can just be done away with. However that is completely wrong, if not a lie. The Apostles and the early faithful in Messiah … and I am not speaking of those who followed a messiah by the name of Jesus here, for that was a new created personage by that so-called apostle the Satan inspired Simon (Peter) Magnus in early Rome (in my study regarding him, you will read the writings of Justin Martyr who said that the Romans even erected a statue in his honour) … but the faithful never again sacrificed any animals, because Yahushua, the Lamb of Yah Who takes away the sins of the world, had already been sacrificed once and for all time for the sins of the world! HaleluYAH.
Therefore the Apostles and the ongoing faithful in Messiah kept the feasts without the offering of any blood sacrifice because they understood that this beautiful Law is to be kept forever:
You are near, O YHVH; and all Your Commandments are truth. Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever.” Tehillim - Psalms 119:151-152. 160, KJV)
“Your Word is true from the beginning: and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.” Tehillim - Psalms 119:160.
Interestingly the Hebrew
word for “forever” is “Olam”
and this word is better translated, as found in the Strongs Exhaustive Concordance;
as “eternity”, “eternal”, “perpetuity”,
“without end” and to a “vanishing point.” Thus, the
point is what Elohim has declared, He will never break, for it is for all
Thus these feasts were kept by all the faithful until, under the influence of the Church of Rome and their paganism entered and began to corrupt what was once a pure faith. Under the guise of “converting the pagans,” Victor, the Bishop of Rome mixed “Christian” or actual Scriptural persons and bits of theology with paganism, whist adopting pagan celebrations that became pagan feasts celebrated today, such as Christmas and Easter, while setting aside all the feasts of YaHVaH. Polycrates an early martyr, learned from Polycarp, one of Yochanan - John’s disciples, to keep the feasts. When Victor sought to enforce the observance of the new feast of “Eostare” based on the god Ishtar, but Polycrates wrote him a letter where he advised about the important faithful leaders who all upheld the Passover and not this new feast. Let us read his letter;
“Therefore we keep the day without change, neither adding nor taking away, for in Asia great luminaries sleep, and they will rise on the day of the coming of the Saviour, when He shall come with glory from heaven and seek out all the saints. Such were Phillip (the Apostle). There is also John who lay on the Saviour’s breast. And there is also Polycarp at Smyrna, both bishop and martyr, and Thraseas, both bishop and martyr, from Eumenaea. (Then there are) Sagaris, Papirius, and Melito, all of these kept the fourteenth day of the Passover according to the gospel, never swerving, but following according to the rule of the faith.” The letter from Polycrates to Victor, Bishop of Rome, as quoted in “Eusebius’ Ecclesiastical History.”
There were others who mourned the changes that came about and they were also deplored by Tertullian, who around 230 AD, made his feelings known that the Scriptural feasts had been laid aside in favour of these erroneous pagan festivals:
“By us who are strangers to Sabbaths, and new moons, and festivals, once acceptable to God, the Saturnalia, the feasts of January, the Brumalia, and Matronalia are now frequented; gifts are carried to and fro, new year’s day presents are made with din, and sports and banquets are celebrated with uproar; oh, how much more faithful are the heathen to their religion, who take special care to adopt no solemnity from the Christians.” Tertullian, De Idolatria, c. 14, Vol. I, p. 682.
It became quite a battle between the Church of Rome and the faithful who refused to accept paganism, for they chose to worship the feasts of YaHVaH, and thus at times their writings at times became somewhat heated. Eusebius, a Roman historian and Bishop of Caesarea, wrote about the conflict that was going on:
“At that time no small controversy arose because all the dioceses of Asia thought it right, as though by more ancient tradition, to observe for the feast of the Saviour’s Passover the fourteenth day of the moon, on which the Jews had been commanded to kill the lamb.” Eusebius, Church History, Ch. XXIII.
It was obvious that those who were of the Apostolic faith, such as Polycarp and Polycrates who had been taught directly by the Apostles continued to observe the feasts and they refused to accept the counterfeit pagan celebrations. How could they possibly stand against the teachings of the Apostles themselves, as they were the Anointed of the Saviour, whilst these men who used their ranks were using pagan influences, no they could not.
Beloved, what is so sad today, as we read this study, and we are reading facts from history, that the vast majority of readers will be upholding the very pagan feasts and are worshipping on the “venerable day of the SUN” without even blinking an eyelid, for you believe that it is right and normal, just because your minister, pastor, preacher has said so. But, who have they been taught by? Well, your church may have left the Church of Rome and rejected some of their theology, however, I am sad to say that a great deal of the Roman pagan rubbish, that was so cleverly intertwined by Satan when he used that pagan Simon Magnus the Bishop of Rome, you would never have known, but here is the key!
What do you call our most beloved Saviour? He said on various occasions:
“And whoever welcomes a little child like this in My Name welcomes Me.” Mattityahu - Matthew 18:5.
“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in My Name, there am I with them.” Mattityahu - Matthew 18:19-20.
“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My Name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask Me for anything in My Name, and I will do it.” Yochanan - John 14:12-14
“Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.” Yochanan - John 15:16.
“I tell you the truth, My Father will give you whatever you ask in My Name.” Yochanan - John 16:23.
Have you noticed the KEY word or words in each of these statements? It is that our beloved Saviour makes a special emphasis on the statement of “My Name.” Why is that so important? Well, throughout the entire Tanach that is Hebrew for the Old Testament, every single name has a very special meaning and amazingly names always seems to be there at a special time and at the right time! They tend to speak about a situation at hand at the time, or the attributes or blessings of YaHVaH Elohim. I pray that you may read some of the 100 plus studies on this site, and you will discover that many of these will point out how important names in the Word of our Heavenly Father are, but here is just an example to make this clear.
Lets us look briefly at the book of Yo’el – Joel. From the study “The Prophecy of Yo’el – Joel.”
I will commence with the verse in transliterated Hebrew and then in English.
YaHVaH A’sher Hayah El Yo’el Ben Pethu’el.” - “The
Word of YHVH that came to Yo’el, the son of Pethu’el.” Yo’el – Joel 1:1.
However it was Pethu’el made a bold and powerful statement in the days, when his people had gone astray, when he decided to give his son the name “Yo’el,” for his name translates as “YaHVaH is Elohim.” This was an important statement for that time, for sadly during his lifetime many false gods were worshipped amongst his people who were being stylised as drunkards (1:5) and the people were no longer providing the priests at the temple with the required offerings (1:9) thus they had at large had forgotten their Elohim, the Elohim of their fathers. Thus, Pethu'el made a clear statement to Israel by naming his son Yo’el. Israel, know and understand that YaHVaH is our Elohim!
Yah or YaHVaH
is the blessed Memorial
Name of Elohim, which the people of Israel sadly will not use even
though He commanded it to be remembered. However, they use alternative terms
like “HaSHEM” –
Hebrew for “the name” or “Adonai” for “the LORD,” with
LORD written in all Scriptures in capitals, instead of using YHVH -
The reason for Israel using this excuse may be found in Shemos - Exodus 3:15.
Elohim said to Moshe, ‘Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: YHVH
Elohim (the LORD God) of your fathers, the Elohim of Avraham, the Elohim of
Yitzchak, and the Elohim of Ya’akov, has sent me to you. This is My
Name forever, and this is My Memorial to all generations.’”
Because in the Hebrew, the rabbis claim that the word “forever,” Le’Olam, is written defective, it could be read as “Le’Allem.” “Le’Olam” means “forever” whilst “Le Allem” these rabbis say means to “conceal,”
Therefore the Rabbis found it to be an allusion that the four letter Name of YHVH Elohim, YaHVaH, should be concealed. Now that is after having used it for millennia!
However, it is rather strange but for some 18 times the very same word “Le’Olam” occurs in the Word, written in the very same way as in Shemos - Exodus 3:15, thus in the defective manner. However, each time the rabbis translate it, and they insist that it means as absolutely “Forever,” i.e. the promise Elohim makes to the Children of Yisroel in Shemos - Exodus 32:13;
make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your
descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance Le’Olam
Due to the error of the rabbis, whenever the Memorial Name of Elohim appears in the Tenach, it is read as “Adonai – LORD,” or “HaSHEM, the Name.” However, at the same time, the Hebrew word for “Memorial” is “Zecher,” which literally means – “to proclaim,” or “mention.” Should the blessed Memorial Name of Elohim have been concealed or mentioned?
You may say, how sad, due to Israel’s having turned away from the use of our Father’s Name in true worship and in the correct sanctified manner, the name has been lost to the vast majority of the world, and thus, the churches and others have been calling “the Creator of heaven and earth and all that is therein” … “the LORD.” Now that IS NOT His Name! The truth is that His name has never been lost, for all one needs to know is how to be able to understand Hebrew and to use the three point system, and knowing that all names, including the Greatest Name of the ALL means something, for His Name is YHVH or YaHVaH, that can also be pronounced YaHWaH, as the Hebrew letter “V” the “Vav” can be pronounced as a soft “W.”
Yet, Israel are not the only ones who have made such a great error, for “christendom” has been calling their messiah “Jesus Christ.” The question I have to ask, who is this person? for no person of that name ever existed on this earth who was a Messiah, or “Immanuel” for that matter, who was prophesised in the blessed Scriptures.
OK, now you are really shocked, but, I am sorry it just happens to be the truth, for the name “Jesus” was the creation by a evil person who was clearly spoken about in the Book of Acts, who was a Samaritan Sorcerer by the name of Simon Magnus (a so-called Simon Peter), who became the first Bishop of Rome and no that was not the Apostle Shime’on ben Yohah - also called Peter who walked with our beloved Saviour, for he never set foot in Rome, for he was “the apostle to the Jews.” Shaul – Paul confirmed that he never visited Rome but Babylon! See the bottom of this page for the relevant link to the Simon Magnus study!
The truth is that the church has always known that Messiah’s Name has been Yahushua, but they have refused to use it. They tried to say that it was a translation, but beloved although we MUST translate words, but never names! Let me be totally honest the name Joshua from the Tanach – the Old Covenant is the very same name as Yahushua our beloved Saviour! Thus why did Joshua receive a name that sounds so similar to the original Hebrew, whilst our beloved Saviour, “who was from the beginning, who was with Elohim, who was Elohim” was lowered and given the name of jeSUS = “a hail to Zeus!”
Now let’s read some facts, and this comes directly from a trusted source “Strongs Exhaustive Concordance” let us see what Strongs has to say about this matter!
Strongs: NT:2424: Iesous (ee-ay-sooce'); of Hebrew origin (NO its NOT) [OT:3091]; Jesus (i.e. Jehoshua), the name of our Lord and two (three) other Israelites.
(yeh-ho-shoo'-ah); or Yehowshua (yeh-ho-shoo'-ah); from OT:3068 and OT:3467;
Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (i.e. Joshua), the Jewish leader: Jehoshua,
Thus you can see very clearly that Strongs has shown it clearly that “Jehoshua (correctly written as Yahushua) is the name of our Saviour and two or three other Israelites,” including Joshua of course who led the Children of Israel into the Promised Land having received the leadership from Moshe!
Thus, if you have that deep desire in your heart to “Return again unto YHVH” then you MUST return using His and His Son’s correct Names, for Names Matter as the Scriptures so clearly tell us! We must address our Father in Heaven in Sanctified prayer as YaHVaH Elohim (not God), and always conclude in the Name of Yahushua! The reason that we do not use God, for this word is related to the names of pagan gods, and there is a study online re this. The truth is beloved, Satan has been busy over the past two thousand years and over time it has become so accepted that it has become the norm, and I am well aware that when it is said, that the vast majority will defend their stand and fight teachings like this, and say that we are a cult, the enemy, etc, etc, and how sad and tragic it is, for the church has been deceived by Rome for far too long, and unless the reader prays and listens to the Father and His beloved Messiah, they will have to listen to the Two Witnesses during the first three and a half years of the tribulation, and if they then come to accept the truth, it will be a painful time as the beast will slaughter many of the faithful, especially during the Great Tribulation, in the second half when the witnesses will have been killed and raised from the dead three and a half days later by Elohim!
“Return again unto Me and I will Return again
Did you know that for over a thousand years, the churches of Scotland were still worshipping on the seventh-day Sabbath and observing Passover according to the ancient Scriptural calendar? But under the power of a Roman Catholic queen, Scotland was forced to finally lay aside their apostolic faith that had been preserved since the times of Paul.
We should realise that to worship on counterfeit worship days that honours the SUN god, being a SUNday, dishonours our Creator. In addition celebrating any of the christian pagan holidays and refusing to observe YaHVaH’s feasts simply means that you are breaking the Divine Law as taught by our blessed Saviour Yahushua for He and all the Apostle’s upheld them at ALL times!.
“I gave them My statutes and showed them My judgments, which, if a man does, he shall live by them. Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me that they might know that I am (YaHVaH) who sanctifies them.” Yechehel - Ezekiel 20:11-12.
All the promises are for the faithful in Messiah, being those who do His will and keep His commandments, judgments and statutes, for the Church somehow tends to forget a very simple factor, although I have heard it said countless times especially by those “Oh praise the Lorrrrd, Hallelujah, Praise Him, Praaaiiiise Him” women that are so over the top to say the least, they and even ministers have told me plainly; The God of the Old Testaments is an angry God, whist the God of the New Testament is A God of LOVE!” Excuse me, let me remind you of what the Word has to say about that!
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. He was with Elohim in the beginning.” Yochanan – John 1:1-2.
Thus He who is “the Word” and that is Yahushua the Messiah and our Saviour “was Elohim” and “He was with Elohim in the beginning.” This is the same Elohim who gave the Law in the Tenach (OT), the same Elohim who spoke to Avraham, Moshe, yes, surprise, He is our Elohim, and yet those evil so-called followers of Jesus a Greek name related Zeus, are saying that the “God of the Old Testament is an angry God.” Yet, they are in reality speaking of Yahushua our Saviour, well all that praise does not really mean much, does it? But then I suppose it is praise for jeSUS!
“Keep Your precepts diligently. I will keep Your statutes. Teach me, O YHVH, the way of Your statutes; and I will keep it unto the end. So shall I keep Your Law continually for ever and ever.” Read Tehillim - Psalm 119.
Below we see that both our beloved Saviour and the Apostles continually upheld both the Passover and the Sabbath’s “as was custom” for these were never negated and the fourth commandment remains in the Ten Commandments, but it has been simply thrown out by the church! But they are perpetual feasts, and yet did you realise that there is more than just the weekly Sabbath, for that Seventh Day is a weekly feast, as we will see in Vayikra – Leviticus. However, all of the feasts are not just Sabbath days, but most are High Sabbath Days as you will read in Vayikra - Leviticus chapter 23.
“And YHVH spoke to Moshe, saying, ‘Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them,’ 'The feasts of YHVH which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, for these are My feasts. The Sabbath; six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest and a holy convocation. You shall do no work on it; it is the Sabbath of YHVH in all your dwellings.’” Vayikra - Leviticus 23:1-3.
“On another Sabbath He went into the synagogue and was teaching.” Lukas - Luke 6:6.
The above proves the truth in a simple manner, and these are just a few of the possible quotes that could have been used for there are many more, for we could have used those of other Apostles, but it is generally thought that Shaul – Paul was the one who negated the Law, but no he did not, he certainly was against the man-made laws, which the rabbis had burdened Israel with, and these were the very same laws that our Saviour spoke against! Thus, again, the theology has misled the church, because they were unable to apply the three simple points that I supply on each and every study on this site and are contained in all our teachings, for we MUST teach the Word of TRURH! Blessed be the Name of YaHVaH Elohim and Messiah Yahushua, our blessed Saviour!
Therefore beloved, I pray that you will be ready when the trumpet will sound on the Feast of Trumpets and one thing I do know, that every event in Messiah Yahushua has occurred on a Feast day, Passover and Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits and Feast of Weeks, these have all been fulfilled on their days, thus the next will also be fulfilled on the Feast of Trumpets, although we will not know the year, but we can know the day that He comes for His Faithful! Thus, be ready for the sound of “the Trump of Elohim!”
“Be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let all esteem one another better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Messiah Yahushua: Who, being in the form of Elohim, thought it not robbery to be equal with Elohim: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the stake/cross. Wherefore Elohim also hath greatly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name: That at the Name of Yahushua every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Yahushua the Messiah is Saviour to the Exalted of Elohim the Father.” Philippians 2:2-11.
“Teach me Your way, O YHVH. I will
walk in Your truth.
